The Victoria Board of Fire Underwriters held a very interesting session,
on Tuesdav last, the meeting lasting
all day. In addition to the local
agents of the fire insurance companies
there were present Messrs. Pollochi
and Tiedeman of San Francisco, and
Lewis of Montreal.
The object of the meeting was to
consider a proposal to amalgamate
the Victoria and Vancouver Boards,
and remove the headciuarters of the
insurance business for British Columbia to the Mainland city.
This matter was first broached
about ten months ago by certain Vancouver people, but was stoutly resisted bv the Victoria men. Tuesday's
meeting was called ostensibly for the
purpose of enabling the gentlemen
above named to consult with the local
men, but the consultation was purely
a formal affair, as the majority of the
companies had already been persuaded to instruct their agents to vote for
the amalgamation.
Some of the instructed companies
refused to acquiesce, but in all only
eight of the companies were put pn
record as opposed to the transfer of
the business to Vancouver.
Under the arrangement which has
existed for many years with every
satisfaction both to the companies
j and the public, Victoria had its own
Board of Fire Underwriters, which
had its own secretary. The new plan
provides for a board at Vancouver on
which Victoria will be represented.
The presidency and vice-presidency
are to alternate between the two
cities, so that whei) one has one office
the other will have the other, but the
secretary and the head office are to be
in Vancouver.
Naturally the Victoria agents objected to the change. They claimed,
and the claim was not disputed, that
the new arrangement would be more
expensive than that which has been
in force; that the existing system has
been wholly satisfactory, which abo
was not disputed; and that the proposed change will have the effect of
throwing business into the hands of
the dissenting companies and lead to
the establishment in the city of non-
board companies.
The discussion is said to have been
courteous, yet tolerably vigorous; and
while it would not be correct to say
that anv one attacked any one else,
there is ground for saying that compliments were conspicuous by their
absence. Such of the local agents as
•took part in the debate were very
strong in condemning the contemplated change. Undoubtedly local pride
had something to do' with their
staunch attitude, but no one will
blame them for standing up for their
It is stated that the Board of Trade
is to be asked to take up the matter
with the view of entering a protest
111 the name of the business men generally against this needless change.

—Holding Its Popularity:
The big bargain sale conducted by
Mr. A. Blvsrh in the Balmoral Block
seems to be drawing larger and larger
crowds of lady shoppers daily, as the
purchasers spread the news of their
luck among their intimates. The
bargains advertised are bona fide, and
the ladies realize it. Hence the popularity of the sale. Honest statements
of fact cemented together make a
good foundation for business success.

In Order
Curious Developments Present
Themselves in Connection
With Civic Deal
In a recent issue of "Progress,"
appeared the following local item
under the caption of "A Question in
"A correspondent of "Progress"
is very anxious to know just how the
city conncil works out to the satisfaction of the ratepayers, this little
question in arithmetic: Some time
ago the city advertised for 3,000 yards
of beach gravel for use in the construction of permanent walks. Among
the bids was one from Mr. Bullen's
firm at 48 cents per yard, delivered
at wharf. To this 50 cents was added for haulage and wharfage, making
a total of 98 cents a yard delivered.
The city awarded the contract at
$1.13 and agreed to pay 7 cents a
yard wharfage in addition, or a total
of $1.20 a yard. This to the ordinary
mortal looks very much like a deliberate loss of 22 cents on the yard, or
upwards of $600 to the city. How
does the council work it out otherwise?"
There was no answer to the question volunteered by any of the members of the aidermanic board, who
one must be permitted to suppose,
have worked out tbe problem to a
result satisfactory to the citizens.
Yet how has the matter worked out
in practice ?
If "Prosress" be correctly informed, the recipient of the contract
promptly "threw it tip." And it was
then discovered that there had been
no deposit as required to guarantee
satisfactory performance.
The citv is now paying $1.25 per
yard for its' gravel, i«ore than has
been ever before paid—27 cents on the
yard higher than a bona fide and reliable tender of a dependable firm, or
$810.00 in excess of that firm's tender
on the total quantity required.
Fresh lenders were not invited, nor
was the lowest tender given consideration.
Moreover, the gravel is being hauled
from Ross Bay, from the very place
from which the city had said with
emphasis that no more beach gravel
should be taken.
An explanation is certainly in order
—to the property owners who will'
pay their proportion of the added expenditure in frontage assessment—
and to the citizens generally.
-"All's Fish, Etc."
Among the catch taken at the traps
at Sooke last week were a monster
shark, a sea lion and a black fish. The
shark was an exceedingly troublesome
customer and temporarily disabled
some of the hoisting machinery.
—A Deserved Compliment:    \
"Victoria is the cleanest city I
ever was in," was the remark of a
business man from Chicago,who spent
a day here last week. There is no denying that the business part of the
city is exceptionally clean. It could
be made still cleaner, and this is an
important consideration during the
windy days of the latter part of the
summer, if the by-law prohibiting the
throwing of any rubbish on the streets
was strictly enforced. Some of our
business houses are sinners in this
respect. They do not sweep out much
stuff on the sidewalk, but what they
do dispose of in that way is a source
of much annoyance.

Honors For
Mr. Goward
Tramway Rank and File Make
Handsome Present to the
In thcHu strenuous days of strikes
and lockouts, of irrational and mutually disastrous warring between cajpv*.
ital and labor, it is pleasant indeed to '
find a few big corporations in whose
enterprises harmony reigns undisturbed by agitation, where legitimate
rights are freely admitted by management and by men, and where reciprocity in respect and esteem is as an oil
to make all the wheels run smoothly.
No better example of such model
union of Capital and Labor in satisfactory service to the state is found
in Western Canada than is afforded by
the British Columbia Electric Railway Co. Ltd.—a corporation flatly
contradicting the popular ironical denial of soul to business companies, in
whose enterprises strike waste is an
unknown quantity and whose rank
and file here (as well as at Vancouver
and New Westminster) form one
happy business family.
The friendliness of the relations
between the management and the men
in this city was pleasantly evidenced
a few days since in a re-union of the
company's Victoria workers of all departments, whereof the Hotel Victoria
was the scene, and at which the local
manager, Mr. Albert T. Goward was
the guest of honor, the employees
under his supervision being the hosts
of the occasion. The dinner was designed to mark Mr. Goward's then
approaching wedding—solemnized on
Tuesday of this week— and to afford
a favorable opportunity for the presentation by the united workers of at
niagnificient testimonial of esteem—a
handsome Gerhard-Heintzman piano.
The dinner was in the best style
of the Victoria, and was attended by
all the company workers who could
arrange a temporary respite from
their exacting duties as servants of
the public. Mr. A. Lineham acted as
chairman and the decoration of the'
room and tables, as well as the menu
cards, were in excellent taste and of
marked appropriateness. The menu
itself was as hereunder:—
Rine l'.>mtit>      Clear Consomme
Spring Onions Ruiishes Dili Pickles
Sweet Plnklo*
Cmb Cutlets. Tartar Sauce
Pototoes Honeycomb
Cronatrade of Sweetbreads, Stuffed Tomatoes
Roast Beef     Stuffed Veal     Lamb, Mint Sauce
Mashed Potatoes    Sweet Corn . Asparagus
Victoria Pudding
S'rawberry and Lemon ices
Modoc and St. Jnlien      Dry Sauterne
Haut Siuterne
Upon the disappearance of the sub-
stantials from the hospitable board,
the toast list was duly inaugurated
with a loyal and patriotic "health to
His Gracious Majesty."
Then came the presentation, which
was made by the Chairman amidst
cheers, and acknowledged with such
terms of appreciation as Mr. Goward
could commaud, sincerity ringing in
his manly acknowledgment of his deep
feeling, and in his simple admission
that he was overcome by the warmth
of the general manifestations of
friendship and regard made by his
associates of the service. While the
occasion was one that would always
linger in his memory and while tiie
gift of which he had been made the
recipient, was one of exceeding value,
he assured the givers that the sentiments which prompted such a splendid token of regard were to him of
infinitely higher worth.
The presentation had been concluded by Mr. Lineham with a toast to
Mr. Goward, and his reply was in
the nature of a dual acknowledgment
and response.
Then followed other toasts:
"Tbe Mechanical and Track Departments" was called for by Mr. D.
Dewar, responses being elicited from
Mr. W. Armstrong and Mr. P. J.
"The Traffic Department" was proposed bv Mr. W. H. Smith, and suitably acknowledged by Mr. Gibson,
the traffic superintendent.
Mr. P. J. Riddell gave "The Clerical Department," which brought Mr.
Lineham and Mr. H. A. Goward to
their feet in response.
"The Ladies" found a proposer in
Mr. J. G. Battersby, and champions
in Mr. R. Findlay and Mr. R. Wilson.
"Our Host," called for by the
Chair, was suitably responded to by
Mr. E. E. Leason.
Of the gift itself, which will occupy
a proud position in Mr. Goward's new
| home, of which he has very lately
I taken possession: it is a new style
Gerhard-Heintzman in English black
walnut, the carving of the panels being hand-chisel work in wood, and
not stucco or pressed work nor machine carving. The case is double veneered inside and out, with trusses
and panels carved in relief, rich
, mouldings across the top of the upper
| front frame, on pilasters, bottom
frame, and key bottom, and entire
swing front with music rest, and continuous hinges on the fall. It is an
art instrument as well as one possessed of exceptionally rich tone and
full volume, and was specially selected
by Messrs. Fletcher Bros, the local
agents of the manufacturing firm.
Among the employees participating
in the tileasant presentation were
Messrs. G. M. Tripp, H. Gibson, A.
Lineham, J. G. Battersby, H. A. Goward, J. McArthur, C. Wilders, E. A.

appropriated and sold his wife's jewelry in order to dissipate the proceeds; cashed bogus checks in San
Francisco; failed to maintain and
even ill-treated his family; falsified
his books; and helped himself to his
benefactor and employer's money
when that gentleman was receiving
the sincerest sympathy of the community on account of his heavy losses
by fire. And he was given one year.
Common sense denies that he was
harshly dealt with. It also denies
any parallel with the case of T. B.
Hall. The latter had been a good
citizen and husband by far the
greater part of a lifetime. He had
borne himself as a man under cumulative misfortunes. Then he made
one false step and used moneys of
which he was custodian, fully intending to replace them at once, and having as he believed a fully sufficient
sum coming to him and then payable
out of the settlement of an estate in
Montreal. That worries in health had
impaired his mind was evident from
the way in which he lost his money
and his good name. Out of kindness
to Mr. Hall and his family this point
of the affair has been untouched. The
way in which he was '' taken down the
line" is, however, a subject that the
license commissioners should quietly
and honestly investigate. It touches
the responsibility of the city to society, in licensing places that would
not be tolerated anywhere else in
Canada or in the Northwest, and
which are among the strongest forces
extant for the ruin of young men.
But as to parallel between the Hall
case and that of Shephard—it doesn't
exist. Hall received heavier and
more adequate punishment in the
moment he felt a policeman's hand
upon his shoulder, than Shephard will
experience in the full terra of his

THE most important war news of
the past week is to the effect that the
Twentieth Century Archibald Forbes,
Mr. Gordon Smith, almost went to
the front, having intended going by
one of the transports that was pulverized b" the rude Russians. Mr.
Smith is making a great name for
himself. While the derelics of the
business such as Bennet Burleigh,
Davis, et al have been grumbling
about not being able to get to the seat
of war, he has been grinding out
countless tons of the highest grade
war matter at Tokyo, proving conclusively that it is a mistatken ideal
for a war correspondent to go to the/
front at all. His work is now pubV
lished with illustrations in all thel
papers of Europe and signed "Gor-|

that it was unconfirmed by Gordon/,

Smith when he has settled this war,
will return to Victoria, although he
has been offered the editorial charge
of any of the great dailies of London.i

Toronto Globe Celebrates a Notable
In connection with the celebration
of the sixtieth anniversary of its establishment by the father of Liberal
journalism in Canada, the late Hon.
George Brown, the Toronto Globe has
issued a souvenir number that is easily the most artistic and readable, as
well as the largest edition of its kind
in the history of Canadian newspaper-making. The special number is
at once a readable review of Canada's
progress, coincident with that of the
Globe; a valuable work of reference;
and a directory of the most enterprising and prosperous business
houses of the Dominion. It is such
a number as goes far toward compelling recognition of the quality and enterprise of the Canadian press. And it
evidences that the Globe staff of today is in quality and energy every
bit worthy to be the natural growth
of the pioneer authors of the big paper. Here are a few facts concerning
the special edition which will be read
ho doubt with interest:
It contains 44 pages of calendered
paper and 32 pages of ordinary news
—76 pages in all. Eighty thousand
copies have been issued. The entire
edition was exhausted before the paper went to press, and it is only by
the courtesy of a number of advertisers who consented to take fewer pallet's than they desired,- that any
copies are available for the general
public The total weight of paper required to produce the Sixtieth Anniversary edition was 114,400. pounds;
that is 571-5 tons, or, roughly speaking, three carloads. If the papers
were piled one on top of the other in
quarter fold, 12 by 8y2 inches, the
form in which they go to the reader,
the pile would be almost a mile high,
twenty-five times the height of
Brock's monument, or fifteen times
the height of St. James' Cathedral
spire, the highest, structure in Canada. If the sheets printed on both
sides were pasted end to. end they
would reach almost from Toronto to
Winnipeg. Perhaps a better illustration of the amount of printing involved is the statement that the
presses rolled'out printed matter that,
laid down one page wide and each
page touching tlie one next to it,
would stretch from St. John, NB., to
Winnipeg, by way of Toronto and'
North Ray, a distance of over 2,100
miles. Tf the columns were pasted
one on the end of the other the
"string" would extend a good deal
more than halfway around the world.
14,000 miles, to be accurate. It is
interesting also to note, as showing
the relative speed at which fine and
ordinary printing is done, that, while
the half-tone section-of this paper has
been in process of production for
four months, the pressrooms of four
different printing offices having been
brought into requisition, the remaining thirty-two pages were produced
bv The Globe's two perfecting presses
between the hours of 2 and 6 am on
the day of publication.
Protect the Birds:
A very interesting letter from Captain John T. Walbran, president of
the Natural History Society, appeared
in the local press a few days ago, in
which was emphasized the' necessity
of amending the law for the protection of the birds by eliminating the
exemption of children (who are the
only bird's uesters) and the half
dozen varieties of birds whose nests
are now legitimate spoil insofar as
the law is concerned. Captain Wal-
braii in his argument relates an incident wherein excessive cruelty was
shown recently by two boys in taking
the ea's's from a, nest aiid throwing
them upon the ground, while the par-
en^ birds fluttered about uttering
plaintive cries. A far worse case than
this has nresented itself in the Victoria. West district just beyond Ihe
city limits, a boy who attends tlie
Lamps'on street school having been
caught, in the act of killing'young
birds in the nest by burning' their
throats with lighted'matches.' Such
an act of excessive cruelty indicates
something radically wrong with the
perpetrator. He has in him tlie making of a Nero.
Robbed The Sluice-boxes:
Billy Lane, for several years a resident of this city, and now generally
known throughout the Yukon country
as "Billy tlie Horsp," is in jail at
Cold Bottom, charged with having
robbed the sluice-boxes on claim No.
3 on Last Chance. He has had a
preliminary examination before Magistrate Routledge and has been committed for trial.   Lane had been em
ployed in stripping some ground on
an adjacent claim, and suspicion
pointed to him. On the claim robbed
there is a considerable amount of
clay known as gumbo—a clay that
sticketh closer than a brother and
which for "eneral adhesiveness would
make glue look like brook water. To
rob the sluice-boxes, a man was forced
to go through this, and he might just
as well have travelled over wax—for
the gumbo carried perfect casts of
the footprints. The police had no difficulty in cutting out a footprint, and
fitting it to one of Lane's shoes it
was found to belong there. Collins,
the manager of the despoiled claim,
cannot say with any certainty how
much has been taken. It is thought,
however, to be upwards of $5,000.
—Trade Conditions Favorable:
Word has been received from Mr.
Geo. L. Courtney, traffic manager of
the E. & N. railway, who went to(
Mexico some weeks ago to investigate
the subject of trade opportunities between that country and this, indicating that he will be home before the
fend of the present month, with a full
report of his observations. Mr. Courtney has been all over the provinces/
of Mexico and has also interviewed
President Diaz, to whom he bore letters of introduction from the Provincial Government and prominent
business men. He expresses himself
as very favorably impressed with the
opportunities for opening up reciprocally profitable international trade at
the present time, and it is therefore
a foregone conclusion that the E. & N.
company will be found among the applicants for the subsidy provided by
the Dominion to assist the establishment of a. Canada-Mexico line of
steamers making monthly voyaa'es at
the outset.
—The New Ways:
It will be two months before the
new marine railway under construction by the Victoria Machinery Depot
will be ready for business. These
ways when finished will be the largest
in British Columbia, able to take a
ship of three thousand tons. This
looks like business and doubtless the
fact that there is home competition
will enlarge the business of the port
in the repair line. The fact that work
is being taken from American cities
shows that Victoria is able to compete with the world in ship-building
and repairs.
—A More Commodious Home:
The proprietors of the Unique
Manicuring and Hairdressing Parlors
are moving their establishment, from
Fort street to the Macfiregor Block,
upstairs, where larger and more commodious rooms have been taken.
Ladies will find the new parlors a
great improvement on the old and
may there get the latest treatment in
massaging, shampooing, scalp treatment, and manicuring.
—Total Eclipse:
Just one week ago the Yukon Sun,
Dawson's morning paper under the
management of Mr. W. F. Thompson, ceased to shine. It had been
living with difficulty for some time
past, during which it fought the battles of that section of the northern
Liberals antagonistic to the Congdon
regime. Mr. Thompson now transfers
his services to the Daily News, by
which the Sun will be continued as a.
morning edition. Many British Columbians will heartily sympathize
with him in his business misfortunes.
He is a journalistic prospector. To
him belonged the honor of establishing the first papei's at Gray's Harbor, Trail and Glenora. To him the
advent of stage coaches, steamboats
or railways appear* ever to be the
signal to move deeper into the wilderness.

of business in the near future are excellent.
Seeing that these things are so,
what is the use in circulating jeremiads about the country? Let us remember that the world takes us at
the value we put upon ourselves, and
that if we supercilliously say that our
public men are dishonest and ourf
business men insecure, no argument is
necessary to convince the world that
we are telling the truth. But these
things are false as applied to British
Columbia, and tte world ought to be
told so.
The travelling correspondent of a
leading Toronto daily was in Victoria
last Sunday and Monday. He said
that his chief told him, when he left
Toronto, that he might go west of
Calgary, if he wanted a pleasure trip,
but that he would find nothing of interest in British Columbia. The correspondent said that he had heard
many complaints since he came to. the
Coast of hard times, especially in
Vancouver, where the business men,
the bankers, and the men on the street
all told the same tale. He said also
that no one in the East had any confidence in this province because,
among other things, of the corruption which prevails in government
circles. "rrogress" endeavored to
set the correspondent right, and will
watch his letter with interest to see
with what success. But this is not all
that must be said upon this subject.
"It is a dirt- bird that fouls its
own nest, ' and there are a good many
"dirty birds" in British Columbia,
judging by this test. We have too
many people, who like to pose as superior persons, people who profess to
believe that the business interests of
the country are in a melancholy condition, and that the government is
simply an organized band of robbers.
Let us deal with the last proposition
"Progress" is not particularly in
love with the provincial government.
This paper did not exist during the
Dunsmuir, Martin, Semlin and Turner regimes, and therefore can only
speak of them historically.   Its conviction, based   upon   a   pretty   fair
knowledge of what went on, is that
neither of these administrations fully
appreciated the reouirements of the
province, or if any of them did, it
lacked the courage to adopt a progressive line of policy.   "Progress"
has no brief to defend any government or any set of politicians.   It is
absolutely free    to call a    spade a
spade, and it thinks it knows a spade
when it see one.   In saying, therefore,  that  in  its  humble  judgment
there has been little or no prostitution of office in British Columbia for
private advantage, and that the resources of the country have not been
squandered to enrich those charged
with administering them, it expresses
its honest conviction and challenges
proof to the contrary.   It will admit
that more than one case can be cited
to establish the proposition that ministers have placed the tenure of office
above the public welfare, aud have
therefore   simply   "marked   time,"
when every public interest demanded
that they should have gone steadily
and stronglv forward.   But this is not
corruption.   It admits that the costly
and primitive system of administering
affairs has been enlarged instead of
being reformed: but this is not corv
ruption, although it may establish a
case of incompetency.   It is prepared
to demonstrate that the public expenditures have not been carefully
scrutinized, and that too much altogether has been naid for service rendered the province; but this is not
corruption; it is only an illustration
of the happy-go-lucky way in which
things are managed in this part of the
country.   Of the abuse of office for
personal advantage the instances have
been few, although the opportunities
have been many.    Of personal ag-
grandizement at the public expense
there has been little or none.   Almost
all of   our    public men have disappointed us, but let us at least do
them the justice to say, as we can
fairly and honestly say, that take
them one with another they are and
have been as free from corrupt acts
as any other public men in Canada.
As to the condition of business,
doubtless it might be better; but
every man who wants work is employed, wages are good, new buildings are going up in every direction,
business establishments are being enlarged, new people are coming into
the province, new lines of industry
are being established, no one seems to
be failing in business, sheriff's sales
are so rare as to be almost unheard!
of, the records do not show that people are mortgaging their property to
any unusual extent and prices of real
estate are stiffening.   The prospects
Lord Dundonald    has    thought it
necessary to warn Canadians against
insidious attempts to weaken the tie
between this country and the mother
land.   Lord Dundonald   is   treading
very close to the line which divides
dignity from impudence.   Canadians
do not need to be read lessons on the
subject of loyalty.   They have proved
their attachment to British institutions and the British flag on too many
occasions.    Those who  are familiar
with Canadian history will remember
that when responsible government was
proposed there were many shakings
of heads over the prospect of the immediate separation of British North
America from the Empire.   When the
National Policy was introduced, Lord
Lome was so certain that it meant
the entering of the wedge of disintegration, that he asked for instructions from the Home Government as
to whether he should assent to the
measure.   There were men who boldly
said in Parliamnt that this would be
the effect of a protective tariff, which
called forth   Sir Charles   'flipper's
famous reply:   "If it is bad for British  connection,  then  so    much  the
worse for British connection."    Sir
Charles was not disloyal in this; he
was only emphasizing his belief that
British   connection   was   made   of
sterner stuff than his timid critics
imagined.    So now with Lord Dundonald.    Doubtless he    is    serious;
although  the value of his remarks
would be greater if it did not come,
on the heels of his dismissal for insubordination.    But under any circumstances, he   completely   misconceives the nature of the connection,
whose possible weakening he deplores.
The one sure way in which to smash
the Empire into pieces is to impose
upon it a system of militarism.
sonal. This will be a serious mistake.
It will be a bad thing for the party,
although a party which will resort to
such a thing deserves defeat; but it
will be a far worse thing for the
country. It is to be hoped that better
counsels will prevail and that the
next fight will be a clean one on questions of policy. Ever since the tactics of the Conservative party have
been dictated in the Montreal Star
office, the tone of its campaign work
has been lowered.
The Grand Trunk Pacific legislation has gone through and no time
limit for beginning has been fixed.
It ought to bo understood that this
remark is of general application and
does not refer to the construction iii
British   Columbia   exclusively.   The
whole question of the time of beginning anywhere is left open for the
present; only the time of completion
being fixed.   This being within eight
years, it follows that the time of commencement cannot be long deferred.
The real question in which the province    is most keenly    interested is
whether the construction of the western division shall be carried on from
the East to the Coast, and it is not
very easy to see how the government
could make any stipulation on that
point.   The method of construction is
something which Parliament   cannot
very well undertake to regulate.   If
it will be cheaper to build most of the
line from the East, it will be in the
interest of the country as a whole,
seeing that it guarantees a certain
percentage of the cost, that the line
should be built from the East.   Very
naturally the government would not
seek to imnose conditions upon the
company  which would have the effect of increasing the cost of the line.
If it is not cheaper to build from the
East, then we mav feel very sure that
the company will do at least a part of
its work from the West.   By such arguments as these the "'overnment can
very well justify its action in omitting any stipulation as to the date of
beginning work in British Columbia
or as to simultaneous contsruction.
But there   are local   considerations,
some of which will be presented in a
future issue, which have not yet been
fully discussed and which it is timely
to deal with.
The wheels of justice seem to be
again revolving. Apropos of nothing
in particular, a Toronto story may be
told. Police Magistrate Dennison
was sentencing a man for sealing railroad ties. "My friend," he said,
"if you are attracted to railways,
you should steal a whole system. It's
a crime to steal ties.''
Spokane is advertising in all the
papers of the Northwest that it has
secured the Fifth Regiment band of
Victoria—"one of the crack military
bands of Canada"—as its great fair
attraction in October. Incidentally
Spokane thus spends hundreds of
dollars in advertising Victoria.
The purchase by the eity of the
land at the Gorge is a very praiseworthy act, but something more is
needed. The Victoria Gardens ought
to be bought, the saloon should be
closed and the ground should be beautified.

Not very long ago the news of the
death of Paul Kruger would have created a profound sensation, and before
the event happened the wires would
have earned honrb' bulletins of his
condition. He has passed away, and
not even a ripple has appeared on the
surface of current history. Kruger
outlived himself. With the passing
of the Transvaal's independence, the
sturdy president's career closed. It
will not be difficult to do justice to
Kruger. He was a patriot according
to his lights, a man of singleness of
purpose and rare determination. That
he was ambitious will not be disputed,'
and that his ambition cost his country
its independence, events have demonstrated. His dream of a South African republic, in which the Boer element would be supreme, was out of
keeping with the age in which he
"Progress" has been asked to use
its influence to have the occupants of
certain houses compelled to remove
to a part of the city where their
presence will be less offensively conspicuous and their example less hurtful. The subject is one that no paper
cares to discuss unnecessarily, and
"Progress" therefore contents itself
for the present with saying that it
will gladly go into particulars with
the municipal authorities if they so
desire and will tell them how a similar evil was promptly remedied in
another Canadian city. If the municipal authorities so desire all ground
for the complaint above referred to
can be removed.
The Auditor-General of Canada
wants to be superannuated. He says
that if the government will not introduce such a measure as he thinks
ought to be passed, he will not remain
in office. Mr. McDougall is an excellent officer, but he is only an officer. He is not the government of
the country. He is not responsible
for the government of the country.
His duty is to carry out the law as he
finds it on the statute book. Like
many men in office, years of experience have made him somewhat set
in his ways. Ministers come and go,
but he stays on, and he would like to
be more of a law unto himself than
the government thinks is quite consistent with its responsibility. The
existing system has worked well for
a quarter of a century at least, and
the need of an immediate change has
not been shown.
Of the two presidential candidates
in the United States who are seriously to be considered, it may be said
that both are safe men. Judged by
their personal records. Parker, the
Democratic nominee, seems the abler
and more substantial, although no one
will denv that Roosevelt is a man of
great talent, courage and honesty. A
political svstem which brings to the
front in a popular campaign two such
men, needs no apology. If the people of the United States have determined to change their administration,
they arc exceedingly fortunate in having so good a man as Parker to replace so good a man as Roosevelt.
The refusal of the City Council
to pay the $15,000 falling due on
.Tune 30th under the Terminal Bylaw was not unexpected, but it is not
just what people, having regard to
the good name of the city, would,
have liked to see done. This is not
intended as a suggestion that the
Council did wrong. This is a point
upon which "Progress" will not
speak until it has further considered
the question. But it does not look
right to have the bald statement go
out that the city has repudiated an
obligation. If the refusal can be justified, it is to be hoped that a full
statement of the law and the facts
will be forthwith laid before the
To the Editor: The recent discussion on the word "foreigner" brings
to mind some of its applications. No
doubt the Premier at a late discussion
must, as he immediately qualified his
remarks,by the word'' stranger,'' have
applied it to those who had not been
closelv associated with matters in the
colonies, more particularly in this
case, military affairs. This reminds
me of an incident that transpired
while I was a member of the Local
Legislature in this province. At one
time the late Hon. Theodore Davie
made the statement, while discussing
matters pertaining' to the province,
that the Eastern Canadians, meaning
all east of the British Columbia
boundary line, were nothing more nor
less than foreigners. I remember
well that he was several times reminded of this statement, but no retraction of the word was over made,
nor did those opposed to him carry
his remarks on the subject into, the
elections which followed afterwards.
The opposition of the day were of a
forgiving disposition, as the statement could not under the circumstances be excused, as the word
"foreigner was applied to all Canadians who were part and parcel of
the one great Dominion.
Certainly the term may in a sense
be applied to countries whose distance
makes them strangers to the laws and
customs of this country but for a
Canadian to apply the term "foreigner" to his own countrymen because thev did not live in the same
province is more than we at the present day are willing to accept. However, to be charitable to those who
have lived in the past, possibly the
term then applied, was in a sense
applicable on account of the customs
and opinions to those who had imi-
grated from the eastern provinces.
Nor did those who had lived in this
province for many years look upon
the Eastern Canadian as one who
would readily assimilate to the western ideas and customs that "had
been." To be charitable then, the
word "foreigner" was not; to the
good sense of the people, kept up
against the Premier of that day, the
Hon. Theodore Davie, but was allowed to pass over, every one believing
that although an explanation was not
made the full sense of the word was
not intended as an insult to those
who were members of the same
A change has eome in these later
days over the spirit of the politicians.
The full • meaning of the word must
be taken and not onlv reiterated in
the House of Parliament, but repeated in the press and most likely will be
carried into the coming campaign as
a cry against the Premier of the Dominion.

* J     The Week in Society^ j * I
Society has found in   the   Genge-
thet wedding, to be solemnized by
n. Afchdeacon Scriven this evening
nine in Christ church cathedral, its
neipal and most fascinating sub-
t of small talk during the present
ek.   For not only by reason of the
iminence in a large and fashionable
sle of friends, of the principals in
ight's matrimonial event, and their
rked personal popularity, but be-
se the wedding promises to intro-
le to Victorians several pretty in-
ations, it is a welcome oasis in a
-stretching desert of social same-
It is, for example, something
v in Victoria society to mark the,
agement announcement   with   the
isentation to the prospective bride
ore particularly  by  her  girlhood
snds) of prettv engagement cupsji
ich on the wedding day are given
dace of honor among the marriage!
ts. Miss Rithet's collection of very
nty engagement cups has already
m viewed and admired by a fortun-
few of her more intimate friends,
1 includes souvenirs of rememb-
ice from Mrs. J. L. B. Gunn of San
mcisco; Mr. Harry T. Scott, of San
mcisco; Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Woods,

ward Gunn, San Francisco; Mrs.
con, San Francisco; Mrs. Steven-
, San Francisco; Mrs. R. P. Rithet;

io;  Mrs.  Van  Wyck;   and  Mrs.

ch other engagement gifts include
iretty teacloth from Mrs. C.   A
non, art sofa cushions from Mrs.

son; a pearl pendant from Miss
ie Wason; a silver   tea   strainer
a Mrs. Woods, San Francisco; and
)t of tea spoons from Capt. and
.  Davidson.   The   cathedral   is
g very prettily decorated to-day
the event   of the   evening, the
ses Loewen and Mrs. R. William
smuir having undertaken super-
n of this feature of the wedding
arations.    The hour set for the
ch ceremony of course may be
n as' indicative that evening toi-
s will prevail; and it is whis-
d among those who pretend to
v, that that of the bride will be
repe de chene covered with old
ive service, which was fully choral.
Mr. George Pauline, cathedral organist, presided at the organ, his selections from Wagner's "Lohengrin,"
as well as his tastefully subdued musical accompaniment to the wedding
service proper greatly- enhancing the
beauty of the ceremony. The choir's
effective singing of Barnby's anthem
"Oh Perfect Love" and also of Stain-
Amen," together with faultless
and carefully subordinated accompaniments throughout, were subjects of
general appreciation. The bridal party
left the cathedral to the joyous harmonies of Mendelssohn's immortal
wedding march, and the merry pealing of the chimes. The bride, gowned
in white silk, trimmed with old lace,
carried a shower bouquet of LaFrance
roses, and was given away by Mr.
B. G. Goward; while Mr. R. B. Powell attended his friend the bridegroom.
The church ceremony was followed
by a reception from 3:30 to 6 at
"Rockwood.'' the home of Mr. Henry
Goward, father of the groom. Mr.
and Mrs. Goward received the felicitations of their friends in the drawing room, which had been artistically
adorned in roses and ferns, the effect being exceedingly light and
dainty. The dining room, where the
guests were permitted a glimpse of
the many beautiful souvenirs of her
wedding clay received by the happy
bride, was decorated in sweet peas of
pink and white, while the same fragrant and favorite flower was much in
evidence in the breakfast room, where
refreshments were served. Among
the invited guests were Rev.
and Mrs. Baugh Allan, Mrs. and Miss
Elliott, Mrs. Abbott, the Misses Angus, Mrs. James and Miss Angus,

Says the Nelson Daily News: "The
arrival here of Miss Maud Brvant,
of Port Huron, Ont., after a 2500-
mile trip across the continent to meet;
her future husband has resulted in
the publishing of as pretty a marriage story as the public has' read. She
is now Mrs. George L. Baechler. Mr.
L. Baechler, formerly of Sarnia, is
one of three young men, his companions being' from other parts of the
country, who came to British Columbia several years ago, and have now
become highly prosperous. AH of
the three men had sweethearts, and,
as a remarkable coincidence, they
were all three school teachers in Ontario. The wooing was necessarily at
long range, and in due time the young
men's proposals were favorably received. The happv culmination was
a triple wedding."

As satisfying a one-hour entertainment as has yet been put on at any
playhouse in the west, is that which
the Crystal has been giving during
the present week. It has variety to
suit all tastes. There is music, comedy, athletics, and the motion album.
McKeever and Sandry furnish a
clever act which is closed with illustrations of the various famous knockout blows used by pugilists, McKeever being well qualified to testify,
having fought over 300 battles and
for years held middleweight championship honors in Old England. Miss
Annie ■ Goldie does some very fair
singing and character delineation;
the great Stanfleld, a Canadian artist
by the way, furnishes a number of
amazingly well studied impersonations; and Walter Kellogg sings his
illustrated song "Just Set a Light,"
with much taste and sympathy. The
Sleeping Beauty is the  hit  of the
motion pictures.

William Collier is said to have
made his best and most rational success in "The Dictator," which with
the assistance of Nanette Comstock,
he is shortly to give in Victoria. The
comedy is by Richard Harding Davis,
the first play that writer has produced first hand. It is a brisk, inconsequential, clean and howlingly funny
farce that turns upon the burlesque
government of a Central American
republic. In addition to Mr. Collier
and Miss Comstock, Mr. Edward S.
Abies (who plays the valet) and Miss
Louise Allen, are the principal people of the cast.

The Realm of Music.
On Tuesday evening the Victoria
Ladies' Choral Society gave their
second concert in the A. 0. U. W.
hall before a thoroughly representative and appreciative audience. Chief
amongst the works presented was
Smart's beautiful cantata "King
Rene's Daughter" for solos and
chorus. The soloists were Mrs. W.
E. Green as "Tolantlie," Mrs. Harry
Pooley as "Marta," and Mrs. Gideon
Hicks as "Beatrice." The work was
very charmingly given by both soloists and chorus. The "attack" and
tonal precision of the chorus was
most marked, whilst the work of the
three soloists left nothing to be desired.
Special mention should be made of
Mrs. Poolev's representation of her
part, which was undertaken at less
than three days' notice. Her beautifully sympathetic voice was heard to
perfect advantage throughout, while
her intelligent rendering of the music
excited the wannest admiration of
everyone. Later on in the programme
Mrs. Pooley accentuated her triumph
by her singing of Schumann's beautiful leider "Wedmung," which was
admirably given.
To Mrs. W. E. Green, perhaps, fell
the Hon's share of the work of thfl(
evening, as, in addition to sustaining
the very •—•;""• part of "Iolanthe"
above mentioned, that lady undertook
the solo part in Parker's most florid
part-song "The Fisher," and also
sang a magnificent aria by Ries entitled "How Wondrous it Must Be."
Mrs. Green's bright and sparkling
voice and perfect method were never
more clearly demonstrated, and it
must be said that she added laurels
to her already enviable reputation as
a singer.
Mrs. Gideon Hicks aroused the utmost enthusiasm of the audience by
her singing of a very lovely song by
Tosti, in which (as indeed in everything that ladv does), she revealed
the true artistic temperament.
A special feature of the concert
was the magnificent violin playing of
Mr. Herbert Ritchie, who is staying
in the city for a few days prior to his
visit to Europe, where he intends to
still further prosecute his studies. The
society was very fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Ritchie for
their concert, and his playing of Max
Bruch's brilliant concerto was marked by all that wonderful breadth and
purity of tone and masterly execution
for which he is so greatly noted.
The chorus, as a body, gave every
evidence of the perfect training by
their talented conductor, Mr. F. T.
Watkis, and are to be congratulated
on having such a fine chorus mastei'
at their head. Their singing of Bar-
giel's "The Lord is Mv Shepherd,"
and Raff's "The Day is at Last Departing, '' were perfect examples of
what part-singing should be. In summing up the work of the Victoria
Ladies' Choral Society in this their
first season it must be acknowledged
that the educational benefits of the
organization have been simply inestimable, and it is to be sincerely)
hoped that the work will be long
continued and abundantly flourish.*'
To their enthusiastic and self-abned
gating secretary, Mrs. P. T. Johnston,'
the societv. as well as the conductor,
owe the deepest debt of gratitude—
her work, so unostentatiously done^
has been of the very greatest valuei
to all concerned. The following is
the list of the chorus: Miss Mills,
Miss Todd, Miss Austin, Miss Arch-
butt, Miss Nesbitt, Miss Howell, Miss
Watkins, Mrs. Snider, Miss Stonje^
Miss Wootton, Miss Leverson, Misa;
Wills, Mrs. Mesher, Miss Fell, Mrs.
Wallace, Mrs. Heyland, Miss Hey-i
land, Miss Spring, Miss McMicking,
Miss Spence, Mrs. Clyde, Miss Crocker, Miss Calhoun, Mi's. Greer, Mrs.
Hicks, Mrs. Pooley, Mrs. Floyd, Mrs.
Young, Mrs. Johnston, Miss Harris
and Miss Powell accompanists.
Northern Nuggets the Richest Ever
Received at B. C. Assay Office.
The very high standard of British
Columbia gold is being every day attested in the quality of the dust and
nuggets received at the provincial
assay office, its receipts being chiefly
from Cariboo, Omineca and Cassiar.
Mining men who so dispose of their
gold receive its exact actual value,
less the insignificant charge of $1.50
for assay and treatment, and the cost
of transportation for the resultant
bars to a mint where it is converted
into coin. The gold from Cariboo has
latterlv been mostly from Keithley
Creek, and Quesnel Forks, and of a
value of $1,1.20; while the Omiiiecal
and Cassiar gold shows an average*
value of about $17.75, which is in-
finitelv hieiier than the standard of
other Northern American gold camps.
Last week, however, there were
brought tt> the assav office a handful
of little nuggets from one of the|
northern camps weighing about three
ounces, which proved the highest
grade of gold that ever has been treated by the government experts in precious metals. Its value proved no less
than $20.12 to the ounce, $20.67 being rated pure gold. The fineness was
shown to be 073—pure gold being of
1.000 fineness.

The eyes of all sportsmen and sport
lovers—particularly all followers in
British Columbia of Canada's national
game—will be upon Victoria to-day,
when Vancouver's husky twelve engage the representatives of Victoria
at the Caledonia Park. It isn't so
much the lacrosse team that is upon
its trial. It is the sporting grit of
Victoria. If the town is ready to*
abandon its team and the national
game on account of one or two preliminary reverses, the rest of British
Columbia will be disappointed in
Victoria. If on the contrary it rallies
to the encouragement of the team and
the support of the game, the former,
will take heart and come to the front
as it could not under any other impetus, .while the game will take a
new lease of life. Victorians have had
their say as to New Westminster's
poor sportsmanship. Let them, by
turning out in thousands for to-day's
match at Caledonia Park, show that
they at least are sportsmen in dull
days as well as days of the sunshine
brand. Vancouver has for to-day's
engagement sent over as sturdy and
likely a bunch as has been seen under
the Terminal Citv's colors in many a
day. On the other hand Victoria
seems stronger than in any previous
match of the season. Sammy Lori-
mer is in goal—a tower of strength-
while the following are also enlisted:
Walter Lorimer, Cap. McConnell,
Alex. Stephens, Charlie Whyte, Walter Lain? Tom Gawley, Pete Morres,
Fred Whyte, Glahome (a good fast
man late of Nanaimo), W. S. West
and Stanley Peele. Looks something
like a new team, doesn't it? The
bunch has shown up well in practice
and it is thought can do things. For
spare men Victoria has George Simpson, Tom Crocker, D. Clegg and.
Charles Pike. •*,
On Monday next the picked oarsmen of the J.B.A.A., acompanied-by a
numerous retinue, will leave for Seattle, from which  city they expect
to take  a special car to Portland,
where  this  year  the   championship
events are to be disposed, of at the
annual regatta of the N.P.A.A.O., the
governing body of international aquatic sport on the Pacific.   The Victoria party is expected  to  number
about twenty-five, of whom ten are
competitors    in    the    championship
events: DesBrisay in the senior singles; DesBrisay and O'Sullivan in the
senior doubles; C. Kennedy and W.
Jesse in the junior doubles; Wilson,
Dillaboueii. Kennedy and Jesse in the
senior fours;  aud Andrews, Brown,
Finlayson and Donaldson, in the junior fours.,  The friends of DesBrisay
imagine that he will have a comparatively easy thin"' r* it in the single
sculls, for Gloss is no longer his most
dangerous   opponent.     The   sturdy
Portlander has not been training, and
if he goes in at all will do so out of
condition for the purpose of filling
the race.   DesBrisay is   in   excellent
shape, keeps hard at work daily (although a fire at his business establishment last Friday has thrown him
out more than a little), and feels competent to dispose of the old veterans
Patton and Lamberson, who are reputed the most dangerous men against
him.   The   senior   four shows bull
one change in its composition since it
Kvropfc all before it last year. Leonard
Gill having been replaced at No. 2
oar by Dillabough, a lighter man but
a stronger all round athlete.    There
has been one change in the seating of
the  men during the past fortnight,
Dillabough   and   Kennedy   changed
places in the boat and Coach O'Sullivan   is   satisfied   that   this   change
was     for     the     best.     The    junior    four,    stroked     by    Andrews,
realizes fully that its work is cut out,
Vancouver's juniors stroked by Dalton having proven good enough to defeat the senior four of the Terminal
Citv and assume the representation of
the Vancouver colors in both senior
and junior events.   The junior four
here is made up of 155 lb. men, not
the same crew at all which represented the Bavs   in the Victoria Day regatta.   'The-   hear that Vancouver's
seniors had not taken serious training
for the N.P.A.A.O. meeting, and mere-
Iv went into the nvent races at the
Terminal    town, nn-conditioncd, and

handsome Mackie trophy, appear to
have made a pretty muddle of things.
The race was between the Seattle
yacht Gwendolyn, challenger, owned
by Mr. L. Barnum Johnson, and Mr.
Hodson's Wideawake, which had defeated Gwendolyn handily in the international honor races here only a
few days before. The race and trophy
were given by the Vancouver judges to
the challenger, which returned to the
Sound and was given a royal welcome
as was her due. Then the judges got
out their slates and pencils and did
some more figuring which resulted in
the discovery that they had made a
mistake. The time allowance had been
given the judges in seconds—three figures—and they had taken it for minutes and seconds. The correction of
the error makes Wideawake winner
by 30 seconds, and affidavits to this
effect have been forwarded to Seattle.
Mr. Hodson nevertheless announces
that he will not accept the trophy
under such an award, although he will
be happy to give another race for it.
The Vancouver yacht club had already formally   challenged for   the
trophy in 1905.

globe, has arrived safel- at St. Helena
completing 26,000 miles without one
serious misadventure.    One   of   the
practical obejets of Capt. Voss' long
cruise, which was begun from this
city on the 21st of May, 1901, is to)
demonstrate the advantages of a sea
anchor of his own invention,   which
apparently is proving all the virtues
claimed for it.

It pays to take an intelligent interest in athletics. It pays in build-*
ing up a constitution that can stand
the strain put upon it when occasion
makes the opportunity of a lifetime.
It pays in the promotion of longevity
It pays sometimes its dividends in
advance. There were four candidates
for the Rhodes scholarship allotted
to British Columbia—Harry Bray of
Nanaimo, Israel Rubinowitz, E. De-
Beck, S.C.T. Lucas and A.W. Donaldson of Vancouver. In scholastic qualification there was little to chose
between in this quintette. So the
examiners—Chief Justice Hunter,
Hon. Mr. Justice Duff and Mr. Alexander Robinson, B.A., superintendent
of education, awarded the scholarship
to the candidate foremost in athletics.
Mr. Donaldson is a nephew of Mrs.
Robert Erskine of this city, 22 years
of age and passed his second year's
McGill examination while attending
Vancouver College.

Sedro-Woolley is cock of the walk.

here, they had it virtually their own
way, although the attending crowd
received trood value for their money.

stickers ever seen here. And the home
team's work in the field wasn't all
that it should have been. Besides
which neither Blackburn nor Holness
is the equal of the great Nagle. The
Eernwoods on Saturday defeated the
North Wards by a neat little score
of 50 to 7, from which it will be seen
that the game was close and exciting
all the way through.
