THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY n, 1908
Several weeks ago this
facial Denial, paper commented on a
statement made by Miss
da L. Murcutt during her recent visit
Victoria. The Week was not response for first drawing attention to this
itement, which was published in the
lumns of the Colonist and severely but
propriately denounced. For the stand
lich The Week took the Editor of this
per was subjected to a coarse, vulgar,
rsonal attack, which was concocted for
litical purposes, and published in the
mes as genuine correspondence. The
eek expressed a doubt from the begin-
lg whether the statement which Miss
urcutt repeated hud ever been made to
', as she alleged, by the Mayor, or a
nister of a British Columbia town. The
ticism of the Colonist and The AVeek

mien for the vile slander to which Miss
ireutt had given utterance. Mrs. Spof-
d, the local agent of the W.C.T.U., and
■s. Maria Grant wrote letters in defence
Miss Murcutt, but they entirely evaded
issue, as also did the spurious corres-
ldent of the Times. A general endor-

The Week and all its works is no
wer to a specific charge of slander and
ng. The simple question in which the
ic was interested is whether Miss Mur-
t had any authority for the outrageous
enient which she made. The Week as-
tained that Miss Murcutt had stated
ilst in Victoria that the town to which
referred was Fernie. Investigations
re then set on foot and a letter, of
ich the following is an exact copy, was
iressed to the Mayor of Fernie:
Victoria, B.C., June 30, 1908.
W. Tuttle, Esq.,
Mayor, Fernie, B.C.
)ear Sir,—We beg to call your attention
the enclosed article which appeared in
Victoria Colonist of the 19th inst.
lice then Miss Murcutt's statement has
^•acted a great deal of attention and
ay newspaper comments.   To several of
personal friends she stated that the
|ce she had in mind was Fernie, and as
charge is of such a serious nature and
■Jolves so grave a reflection upon the
lldren of respectable families, many of
lorn are known to the writer, we are
liting to ask you officially whether you
Jde such a statement to Mias Murcutt,
also to  ask  if  it  is  not too much
luble, if you would make the same en-
fry from each of the Ministers in your
ly and notify us of the result with per-
ssion to publish the same.
\\.n early reply will oblige,
Yours truly,
The Week Publishing Co.,
W. Blakemore, Editor.

civod, and can be seen by any person
(The Week office:
Corporation of the City of Fernie,
Office of the Mayor,
Fernie, B.C., July 4, 1908.
J Blakemore, Esq.,
■Lear Sir,—I positively deny ever hav-
niade  such a statement to anyone.
Iwever, I have held the very highest
|ard for Miss Murcutt and it grieves
very much to know that she has used
name in that connection.    The Min-
EDITORIAL
ister mentioned is out of town, therefore
I could not see him.
Faithfully yourB,
W. W. Tuttle, Mayor.
When the Minister mentioned returns to
town he will find an opportunity awaiting him to certify to his connection'with
the matter, but other circumstances have
become known to The Week which render
the evidence of the Mayor conclusive.
This places Miss Murcutt in a very seriou*
position. In traducing the moral character of a town in the manner she did she
has committed a criminal offence for
which she could be held accountable by
law. She is proved to have made a false
statement as to her authority; it can further be proved that when in Fernie she
asked if such a statement were true, and
was answered by a very indignant and
emphatic negative, which increases the
seriousness of her offence. It looks now
as if Miss Murcutt and not The Week is
on trial. The latter has never uttered one
word of criticism upon legitimate reform
methods. Those who think that the work
of the W.C.T.U. or of any other similar
association can be advanced by misrepresentation and slander little understand the
seriousness of the position which they assume. The Week has had the satisfaction
of seeing the abuses Avhich it first denounced recognized by the various reform
associations of Victoria. This is especially the case with reference to the neglect
of young girls by their parents, an evil
which was. strongly emphasized at the recent meetings of the W.C.T.U. and the
Women's Council. What The Week objects to and what it will never cease to
criticise is slanderous misstatement of
fact, especially when such misstatement is
a hideous slander on the characters of our
children. If Mrs. Spofford, Mrs. Maria
Grant and the Editor of the Times are
genuinely desirous of helping on reform
work, they will address themselves to the
task of muzzling Miss Murcutt or rehabilitating her reputation for truthfulness;
until this is done her usefulness as a reform agent may be regarded as a negligible
quantity.
Quite a little sensation, but

Lion's Tail. \ms been created by an attempt on the part of an
American Manager of the Alexandra
Hotel, Winnipeg, to emulate the favourite
pastime of some of his fellow countrymen
in attempting to twist the lion's tail.
AVhen the late President Cleveland invented the pastime his vaporings were
treated by the English Press with an indifference which must have been particularly galling. They simply refused to
take hiin seriously. It is a pity that the
Canadian Press thought it worth while to
give a free advertisement to his feeble
imitator, who probably would not have
been incited to a ridiculous display of
small-mindedness, but for the fact that he
recently married a beautiful American
girl. lie will probably bc furnished with
an opportunity to toot the American horn
on Uncle Sam's preserves.
In Vale
Cariboo
The Colonist and the Times
are   quibbling   about   the
prospect of Duncan Ross in
Yale  Cariboo.    The  facts
are very simple.   At the last general election this constituency was one of the few
selected by the Laurier Government for
the distinction of standing aside for a
fortnight until the other constituencies had
elected their members. Everyone who was
in the district at that time knows that but
for this adroit move Martin Burrill would
have been elected. As it was with all the
prestige of a Government victory he was
only defeated by a narrow majority. Now
it appears that there is some risk of similar
treatment being meted out to the constituency. Of the injustice of such a course
nothing need be said; it is purely a political dodge; the election could just as
easily be held on the general date as on
any other. There are many wider districts, much more difficult of access, but
an excuse which has served once will probably serve again. The Times is right in
its contention tbat on general principles
the argument of the Colonist is illogical,
but it is entirely wrong in the supposition
that the Conservatives are afraid of the
result. The opinion of competent judges
residing in the constituency, who are not
affiliated with either political party, is that
Martin Burrill will be returned by a substantial majority whenever the election is
held, and in this opinion The AVeek
concurs.
Those persons who initiated
Alderman the movement for unseating
Meston. Alderman   Meston   on   a
technicality must now realize that they committed a tactical error.
The only result has been to deprive the
City for several months of the services of
an estimable if somewhat narrow Councillor, and at the same time to arouse so
much public sympathy for him as to secure his return by acclamation. It is
further probable that they have given Aid.
Meston a permanent hold upon the seat
which he occupies. The Week has differed from the Alderman on several matters of importance, but it has never
doubted his sincerity and considers that
it was hardly in accord with British fair
play to take advantage of an obvious oversight on his part.
The arrangement arrived
Agricultural at between the Victoria City
Fair Grounds. Council and the representative of the Oak Bay Council
with reference to the control of the Agricultural Fair Grounds is eminently satisfactory. Divided authority like divided
Counsels invariably predicates a failure.
The City will be able to organize the necessary arrangements so that they can be
carried out with authority and definiteness.
It is to be hoped that broad-minded views
will prevail and that the extremists who
would if they could convert the function
into a picnic, will not be allowed to dominate tho Committee. A'ictoria now has
a splendid opportunity of establishing a
reputation for holding the largest and most
attractive show of the kind on the Pacific
Coast. Seattle will send thousands of
visitors if the programme is attractive and
free from childish restrictions. The police
force of Victorin can bc trusted to maintain order and to protect life and property,
and The AVeek enters a plea for a generous
recognition of all interests and a programme which will satisfy adults as well
as children.

tions, indeed it is doubtful whether it
would not have been wiser to raise the
rate two mills in order to provide an additional grant for educational purposes. The
increase of two and a half million dollars
in the assessment roll is quite moderate,
and might possibly have been larger without straining the conscience of the
assessor. This is not in the slightest degree to criticise the admirable work of Mr.
Northcott, than whom it would be impossible to find a more capable and honourable
official, but it shows just how careful he
is and how conservative are the methods
which he employs. The principal point
is to have the money judiciously expended; the City Council should realize
that in this growing time what has done
for the past will not do for tho present.
Cleaner streets, less dust and more water
are the crying needs of Victoria.
While the increase of rate
of taxation of ono mill is a
slight addition to the burdens of the tax payer, it will
not be objected to under existing condi-
Increased

Just why the Colonist is

Question. [n    agrcement    on    many
points with the Times in relation to the water question is not easy to
understand, especially as the average
reader is convinced that they are diametrically opposed on every point, In the
main The AVeek and the Colonist agree,
whieh makes it all the more interesting to
observe that the Times has brought into
prominence one aspect of the case which
had not previously been emphasized even
if it had been mentioned. It is that water
shortage in Victoria only occurs during
the summer season, say four months, and
to incur such expenditure in order to maintain the maximum consumption of these
four months for the whole year involves
some outrage to the economic principle
which should govern public expenditures.
As an abstract proposition this is correct
and the point is well taken. Further if
there is any practical scheme by means of
which A'ictoria can be supplied with the
maximum quantity during the summer
months without necessitating an outlay
commensurate with maintaining the same
supply for the year, it ought to be discovered and acted upon. But is it possible . Obviously the only means of meeting such a demand would be by storage.
Estimating the extra daily consumption
in the summer time at 2,000,000 gallons,
storage would be required for 250,000,000
gallons. Is this feasible'. And if so
where would the Times locate the reservoir . The weakness of the position taken
up by tlie Times all along has been that
it persists in ignoring the advantages
whicli Goldstream possesses over every
other source of supply. JNo valid reason
has been alleged against the proposal to
call upon the Esquimalt Waterworks Co.
to furnish water by tlie gallon, and thus
by refusing to exercise the privilege and
the right conferred upon it by specific
legislative enactment the City is inviting
difficulties which in the end will render
both more arduous and more expensive the
task of acquiring the Goldstream rights by
any method. AVhen the rights were conferred it must have beeu contemplated that
they would be exercised, yet thc City is
lighting shy lest it should indirectly benefit someone else. The urgency of the
question increases daily and the temporary
expedients now being arranged have contributed nothing to a permanent solution
of the problem. THE WKKK, SATURDAY, JULY n, 1908.

Johnnie Walker in the Vanguard
To paraphraze Tennyson, "Whiskies may come and whiskies may go, but Kilmarnock goes on forever."
Regardless of the many new and highly advertised brands
of Scotch whiskies now on the market, Johnnie Walker
is still in the vanguard. The great demand increases day
by day, well illustrating the survival of thc fittest. Bonnie
Scotland's favorite is absolutely pure and mellowed by
great age. On all occasions when good fellows get
together it is considered the proper beverage, so that every
high-class hotel, bar, cafe or club now realizes the
importance of laying in a large stock of Kilmarnock Scotch.

I had the pleasure of witnessing the
iseball match at Port Angeles last
iturday when the locals added an-
her victory to their already long
t, but I have to confess that it
as a lucky win. Whether it was
e trip across the straits or whether
e local boys held their opponents
0 lightly it is impossible to state
sfinitely, but judging from my obser-
itions I am inclined to think it was
e latter.   At no stage of the game
they have the ginger that has
en shown in their home matches
id it was only by the barest pos-
i>le chance that a victory was se-
lred. Peden was hit rather hard,
at some of them were very flukey,
n the other hand the locals could
it connect with the delivery of the
>posing pitcher and when a hit was
quired it was seldom forthcoming,
ie locals took the lead in the eighth
nings by one run, and in the last
rt of the ninth it looked as if this
id would not be sufficient. The
lgeles boys went to bat; the first
n up died before reaching first;
_ next two, however, not only
ched first but second and third,
this juncture Surplice replaced Pern He passed the first man and
_ bases were full with one man
wn and the hearts of the Victoria
pporters were also down. The
xt man up struck out.   This raised
hopes and when the following
tter hit to Surplice the crowd was
isfied as he was thrown out at first.
connection with the game I re-
ved a great surprise and that was
yarding the rooting. Although the
me was  played away from home
there were more Victoria rooting than
is the case when the locals are at
Oak Bay. If the local supporters
would encourage the team in their
home games as they did in this baseball would soon become the most
popular of summer sports.
This afternoon the locals are playing the Bellingham team and a warm
game is expected. Surplice will do
the twirling and the strongest team
will be out.
of the Tecumsehs to entraf thc New
Westminster team from a betung
standpoint. I will be greatly surprised if the Shamrocks lose, but I
do not think the cup will change
hands on this series.
The question that is agitating the
minds of the sporting fraternity of
British Columbia at present is who
will win the Minto Cup? New Westminster or Shamrocks. This is a hard
matter to settle, but after considering the question from every standpoint I am of the opinion that thc
piece of silver will not cross the
Rockies this season. The ownership
of thc cup for the next year will be
decided in two games, the team scoring the most goals to take the silverware. Many arguments are advanced
both pro and con as to the chances of
the New Westminster team to lift the
cup, but I cannot figure how they
can do it. The New Westminster
team is today no stronger than it was
when an effort was made a few years
ago. It is true the team has won all
its games this season but four goals
to nil, the score against the Vancouver team, is not indicative of good
scoring powers, although the Victoria
boys were defeated twenty-two to nil.
Some point to the defeat of the
Shamrocks by the Toronto team by
the score of 11—1, but they do not
stop to think of the defeat of the
Torontos by the Tecumsehs by the
score of 12—3, and the victory of
the Shamrocks over the Tecumsehs
5—3. The result of the game between
Toronto and Shamrocks is in my
mind a deliberate attempt on the part
The representatives of the J.B.A.A.
who took part in the annual regatta
at Seattle have returned without any
cups. This is, I think, the first time
this has occurred since the association was formed and I hope it will
be the last. From one who was
present and saw the races I am informed that the locals should have
taken the junior singles and the
senior fours. The first was thrown
away by the foolishness on the part^
of Donaldson; the other was lost
through the choice of the course in
which the locals got the outside or
in other words the rough water. I
have not heard of any complaints and
it is safe to say that the locals will
not allow this setback to stop them
from making another and better attempt next year.
The matter that surprises me if
that the junior events had to be set
back a day owing to rough weather.
It was on this account that Lake
Washington was decided on as the
permanent course of the association,
but if the water gets as rough as that
there then there is no reason why the
other cities should not have their turn,
especially when they enter crews and
Seattle does not. I hope to see some
action taken in this matter before
next year and if possible a change
effected.
the first innings the Albions had the
advantage but in the second the Vancouver players did better while the
visitors were unable to play out time.
I am looking for a win for the Albions on the occasion of the visit of
the Vancouver team to this city.
The Dunsmuir Cup will this year
remain in Vancouver and I extend my
neari v congratulations to Capt. Deane
and lhe crew of the Alexandra on
their magnificent achievement. The
defeated Spirit of Seattle was in Victoria harbor on Tuesday and many
critical eyes looked her over. She is
a trim little craft and credit to her
designer, but on this occasion the
knowledge of the conditions proved
too strong.
The annual handicap tournament of
the Victoria Lawn Tennis Club has
been in progress all this week and as
a good report has appeared in the
daily press and in view of the fact
that the finals have not been reached
at the time of writing I have arranged to defer my remarks until
next issue, whicli will be an especially
illustrated tennis number and will
form a complete record of the tournament.
fact that they have no means of comparing themselves with other countries, for they are isolated by their
geographical situation. The middle
classes hardly travel at all; they stay
at home and imagine that their country is the universe. The rich people,
who do travel, rush over the world
as tourists rather than as observers.
The millionaires who visit Europe do
so to amuse and not to educate themselves. They stay in the great cities,
put up at cosmopolitan hotels, and
demand above all "home comforts;'
They neither mix with the life of the
peoples among whom they pass their
time, nor do they endeavor to understand their mental attitude. Nothing
can upset the optimism of the Americans; they refuse to read books
written by foreigners about their
country for fear of finding the unflattering truth, and they disdain to compare themselves with other peoples,
who, they say, are jealous of their
prosperity.
One New York girl had the courage of her leap-year privilege, and
promptly as the clock struck 12 on
New Year's eve she proposed to a
man, was accepted, and the couple
were married an hour later.
The Albions came within an ace of
handing a defeat to the Vancouver
team in Vancouver last Saturday, and
had they been able to hold their
wicket for a few minutes longer the
result would have been different,    ln
Self-Satisfied America.
The American's idea of his own

under a bushel, and we have had
numberless sketches by English visitors, from Dickens and Mrs. Trol-
lope to Kipling. But of America
from a French point of view we have
not heard very much, and therefore
the clever article just published by
the Temps from a French lady staying in New York is of more than
usual interest. The self-satisfaction
of the Americans she attributes to
the paucity of their ideals, and to the

abortive suggestions)-—How would

Mrs. Neweeds—I guess that would

It is amply proved that sleepiness
in church is due to earnest hearers
fixing their gaze too intently on the
preacher and so becoming hypnotized.

"The Father of Qood
Music in Toronto"
(By the Rambler)
Dr. F. H. Torrington, Mus. Doc,
Toronto, recently visited the Pacific
Coast, examining pupils, classes, in
connection with his college, besides
giving several organ recitals. Most
prominent public men at some period
or another in their career, owing perhaps to some peculiarity in speech,
dress, manners, success or failure in
some achievement, manage to get a
nickname bestowed upon them other
than that they were christened with,
and Dr. Torrington is no exception.
local talent, and on the last occasion,
December 30th, 1907, was made the
recipient of a large illuminated address from the City Council, also an
easy chair from his brother musicians
in Toronto. He has also given under
his direction forty-one various musical works and oratorios, as well as
fifty-four orchestral works, yet notwithstanding all this he can always
find time to attend to his individual
pupils in his college.
It is a revelation to watch Dr.
Torrington conducting either a choir
or an orchestra, no matter the number of singers or instruments. Both
eye and ear are so keenly on the alert
that the slightest false note or move

The fifteen-year-old pianist, who recently grave a brilliant recital ln this city.
She ls a pupil of Dr. Torrington.
His numerous friends and admirers
in the East have rather happily selected for him a title of which he
should be justly proud, "thc Father of
Good Music in Toronto," with the
accent on the "good."
No man, living or dead, in Canada,
has done so much to educate the public ear to good music as Dr. Torrington. Coining from Boston in 1873 to
take charge of the Toronto Metropolitan church organ, the largest
musical instrument in Canada, hc succeeded in getting together and holding by sheer enthusiasm one of the
finest choirs ever formed in the East.
Away back in the early seventies this
could have been no light task, as such
things as trolley cars were not invented, and many of the choristers
had to walk a considerable distance
in order to attend practice. Outside
of his work in thc Metropolitan
church he has trained the choruses
and orchestras for all the big festivals in the East, including the performances before the Marquis of
Lome and Princess Louise, the Duke
and Duchess of York, and as far back
as i860 was the leader of thc orchestra at the festival in honour of the
visit to Montreal of the Prince of
Wales, now His Majesty King of
England. For twenty-five consecutive
years he has produced Handel's "Messiah." always giving a preference to
is at once detected, and his baton
points in the direction of the offender.
Some of his pupils havc already risen
to high idstinction.
Let him once discover genuine talent, then neither time nor trouble
will bc spared. He is more than kind-
hearted, though extremely outspoken,
and provided a pupil has talent cares
nut a jol whether they be rich or
poor. Although he is now getting
along in years, his activity and energy
are something remarkable. Ever
cheerful, fond of listening to or telling a good story, he is one of those
men who never grow old. It may be
that his love for his profession keeps
his heart young. He has several
British Columbia pupils in his college
and speaks very encouragingly of all
of them, perhaps more especially of
Miss Alma Victoria Clarke of Vic*
toria, who, he says, will one day
make a very great player. He is
much in love with the climate of the
Pacific Coast and would like to settle
here, and perhaps the day may come
when he will.

Victoria Theatre.
On Monday night the American
comedian, Wm. Collier, appeared at
the Victoria Theatre in a farcical
comedy entitled "Caught in the
Rain." It is a tribute to Mr. Collier's
popularity that he attracted a good
house in the "dor days." His performance was finished and entertaining to a degree, and kept the audience
in good humour from start to finish.
Robert Mantell.
Robert Mantell, who is to appear
at the Victoria Theatre for two nights
beginning Monday, July 13, reaches
the highest standard and is entitled to
our tribute, no matter what individual opinions may be held of former
tragedians. The very contemplation
of the great characters which he portrays indicates his prodigious study
and labour of years. He has wandered and toiled in the byways and
now has come into his own at a time
is a most excellent one. It includes
among the women Marie Booth Russell, who has been his leading woman
for many seasons; Lillian Kingsbury,
an experienced actress who has
supported him several seasons; Miss
Edith Campbell, Leila and Lorraine
Frost and Josephine McCallum.
Among the men are two who are
prominent leading men. They are
Francis McGinn, who served with
Mansfield, and was at one time featured with Frederick Warde, and Guy
Lindsley, who was Modjeska's leading man. Among the others are Gordon Burby, Franklin Bendsten, Ro-
maine Callender, Hamilton Mott, Geo.
Stillwell and others.
The performance, it is announced,
will begin at eight o'clock sharp.
Mr. Mantell, the distinguished tragedian who will appear at the Victoria next Monday and Tuesday
nights was born in Irvine, Ayrshire,
Scotland. All his early experience
was obtained in England with famous
English stars. Though he has been
in the United States many years he
has not followed the example of so
many English actors of endeavouring
to seek personal popularity by proclaiming his    intention    of adopting
Robert Mantell
The World's Greatest Shakespearean Actor.
At Victoria Theatre July 15 and 16.
which gives him a unique distinction
—that of being the only tragedian on
the English speaking stage who devotes himself almost entirely to the
classic tragedies (if Shakespeare, and
who now commands such popular
favour and interest that he is the one
actor who can present the Shakespearean drama for long runs in thc
larger cities.
His present visit to Victoria is noteworthy and the very quality of his
offering entitles him to a royal welcome. The repertoire of Shakespearian plays which he will present is
impressive, and has never been
equalled in tllis city. It is pleasant
to note in this connection that his
visit has already excited much interest, notably on the part of the instructors and students at our educational institutions.
Tiie arrangement for Mr. Mantell's
roles here is as follows:
Monday night—"Othello.
Tuesday night—"Hamlet."
Each of these plays will bc given
with special settings and costumes,
Mr. William Brady, under whose direction Mr. Mantell appears, having
provided a splendid pictorial scenic
environment for each play.
Mr. Mantell's supporting company
American citizenship. He is an Englishman who deserves well of his
countrymen by reason of his personal
worth as well as his great stage accomplishments.
New Grand Theatre.
From thc standpoint of public entertainment the marvellous feats of
Sirronje, the Queen of 1 land-cuffs, arc
so far ahead of the other turns that
they demand first attention. Whether
her performances may more correctly
be denominated feats or tricks, is best
known to herself and her manager,
but that they succeed in thoroughly
mystifying the audience must be admitted. The house is packed at every
performance and hundreds have been
unable to gain admission. When a
woman allows herself to be handcuffed, to be tied in a bag, sealed
up, deposited in a locked trunk, the
trunk wrapped in a sheet, which is
again tied up and sealed, and then in
the space of five minutes extricate
herself and is found on the withdrawal of thc curtains to be seated
on the top of the trunk, it must be
admitted that there is something doing. But the mystery deepens when
instead of using her own trunk she
is nailed up in a packing case, fum-

ished by an independent firm, and
something similar takes place. There
may be many guesses as to how it
is done. I have a theory of my own
which it would not be fair to state,
but whether feat or trick it answers
its purpose of thoroughly entertaining and puzzling the audience. None
of the numerous gentlemen who have
formed a stage committee during the
week seem to have solved the problem. But for the overwhelming excellence of this turn some of the
others would be notable. The airship stunt of Parmet, Russell and Co.
is quite clever, entirely out of the
ordinary and excellently rendered.
The principal character has a bass
voice of the richest quality, which
would be heard to advantage in the
best company. Effie Pearson is just
what she is denominated, a singing
comedienne, let it go at that. Eckert
and Berg give a good musical act,
Mr. Eckert's playing on his celebrated Crown piano being very skilful and securing him repeated applause. For those who like coon
