THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
The verdict of the majority
lintry 0f the citizens of Victoria
lb- on the subject of the Coun
try Club and the race _____
J, which ends today, will be favorable,
pse who have conscientious objections to
Iting would continue their opposition on
Inciple, but they would not be able to
engthen their argument by citing any-
Ing which has occurred at the Willows,
rat this community wants is a little
Ire of the spirit of toleration for the
ler fellow's opinions.   Xo one party is
repository of all wisdom, and there are
lire ways than one of enjoying life. Even
1_ Puritan ultimately found this out, but
lesson   took   long   in   the  learning.
|ventieth century reformers ought to be
to date, and should realise that in order
"live" they must'"let live," and that
Rs age is not. disposed to tolerate the
llicy of those who "compound for sins
ley are inclined to by damning those they
Ive no mind to."    Eacing is still the
lort of Kings, it is still the favourite re-
leation of our own Most Gracious King,
lid this is one of the directions in which
[is Majesty's loyal subjects, or at any
lte a great many of them, will continue
follow the lead.    The extremists who
Ip'ected that before the sixty-day meet
lime t_ an end some catastrophe would
I'erwhelm Victoria j or the earth would
lien _ihd swallow it up must be grievously
tsappdinted, although no doubt they were
lieinsedves fully prepared for such a de-
loUemeht." Still they may cheer up, such
thing may yet happen, although it will
lot be a condign punishment of the gods
pcause of the wickedness of Victoria in
siding a race meeting.
Imith's Hill
It is not a month since The
Week predicted that within
|;eservoir. less. than that time city
workmen would be busily
-Engaged in repairing the leaks in Smith's
llill Eeservoir. The prediction has been
lerified, this week, although the repairs
lave been on a more modest scale than
yas anticipated, but this is no doubt due
lo tho fact that the Water Commissioner
Is anxious to let the ratepayers down as
lasily as possible, and do the necessary
Ivork by instalments instead of all at once.
IV thin smear of cement cannot effect a
very permanent cure of a radical defect,
■md this is what the authorities claim to
liave done. It is admitted that there were
liumerous sun-cracks to be filled, also that
rhe joints of the panel in the bottom of
rhe reservoir were defective. This has
been remedied by a little more boiled
|pitch, and so the farce goes on. During
lhe week the Mayor has announced a re-
Inarkable discovery—it is, that the flood-
ling of the adjacent ranches, and the escape
3f water generally from the site of the
[reservoir is due to the presence of an unknown spring; which will persist in bubbling up to the great discredit of the watertight reservoir. However now that the
enemy has been discovered he will have
Ito bear the brunt of his own misdoing.
Indeed it would only be fair to place on
lis shoulders the blame for any further
Seepage,   by way of evening up things.
leanwhile Expert Adams is in the Sunny
South, and Water Commissioner Eaymur
is struggling single handed with his white
elephant. A subscriber of The Week suggested yesterday that what was really
needed was not so much to repair a leak
in the City's water tank as to stop the
leak in somebody's think-tank.
Press
Dispatches.
Tlie events of the last few
weeks have emphasized the
urgency of an improved
press service for Canada.
Indeed, the necessity is emphasized almost
daily. European dispatches, reaching Canada through New York become' not1 only
more and more, unreliable but increasingly
yellow. The first principlp of yjellow journalism is to make the news: as sensational
as possible, and it is not to give away the
secrets of the newspaper office to admit
that a very substantial body is often built
around a very tiny skeleton. In the building-up process the yellow journals demand
that all the added material shall be sensational, and as a consequence the spirit of
exaggeration dominates the columns of our
newspapers. It can be traced through
nearly every item. If there is a fire the
damage and the fatality are invariably
stated far above the actual figure, in the
earlier dispatches. If there is a flood the
first news tells that a whole country side
has b:-!en swept away, and towns ancl villages destroyed. If trouble crops up in
any quarter of the globe the direst results
are predicted. Insideuof a week or ten
days tho truth is known and as a rule it
is only a fraction of the original statement. When the English papers come to
hand it is generally found that the Inter;
national complications, which, according
to the' American press dispatches specially
l'lifinjifactured for consumption in Canada
were about to precipitate a European war,
wef'e* mainly a little diplomatic rupture
which'has probably been settled before the
details have reached the New World. It
is not a. week since Turkey and Greece
were, rep resented as flying at each other's
throats, but later dispatches indicate that
the possibility of War is remote, arid 'that
the occupancy of ;ttie great powers'is a
practical guarantee of * peace. All tbpse
misrepresentations are supposed to sell the
papers, ancl probably i^ very big cities
where the sljouting of head-liries on the
streets attracts the attention of the passerby and lures the nickel from his pocket
the sales are sensibly affected, but all the
same the result is both immoral and deplorable, and the day cannot be very far
distant when an enlightened public sentiment will insist on accurate news, and will
adopt drastic measures to prevent the publication of fake dispatches.
Until recently the only
Trekking "trekkers"   into   Northern
Northwards.     British     Columbia     were
prospectors on the look-out
fof Mineral claims. In such an isolated
ancl rough country they had hard times,
but managed to bring back to civilization
tales of mineral wealth which literally
made one's mouth water. Many of these
claims are being developed and some of
them already give promise of being among
tbe most valuable mines in the Province.
On the Ingenika, at Portland Canal, and
on Naas River development work is full of
promise, apd "Coolgardie" Smith has a
golci-copper proposition which looks better
in its initial stages than any of the far-
famed ;properties of the Eossland eaiup at
tne same stage. The prospectors were followed iby timber cruisers who have located
hundreds of square miles of the best timber
nf the West, and have laid the foundations for extending its most important industry.' Latterly the timber men have
been followed by the land seekers whose
■enterprise is daily teaching us lessons of
which we little dreamt as 10 the extent of
agricultural lands and the fertility of the
rich valleys, of the North. The latest
trekkers are Cabinet Ministers and Railway Presidents. The growing importance
of the country is the lure which draws
these ;lrig men of tlie community out of
the beaten track, an-d* away from tl^e
haunts of civilization, to. make acquaintance with the country and the conditions
which will demand their closest attention
in the future. Of all problems confronting a new country transportation* is the
greatest. Development awaits the advent
of the steel rail and the iron horse. The
Government of British Columbia,is.fully
awake to this fact, and acquaintance at
first hand is the best preparation for an
intelligent administration. No Premier
has ever devoted so much time as Mr. McBride to visiting the remoter parts of the
Province, which accounts for the popularity of his Government ancl the confidence
which is felt in his handling of public
questions. It is no light task to face all
the demands of a Province which is developing as rapidly as British Columbia.
Indeed it is Herculean. The claims upon
the time ancl energy of a Minister are
most1 exacting, and the manner in which
rreiiiier McBride has met thein is the
highest testimony to liis ability and devotion. Politics apart, the business administration of British Columbia is calculated
to excite the wonder and the admiration
of all who are familiar with its details.
The Colonist has had sev-
Railway eral spasms lately on the
Development. subject of railway, connection with the Mainland,
which it has never closely defined but
which may be presumed to be the construction of some other railway to a point on
the Mainland opposite Vancouver Tsland,
and a ferry or steamtfoat connection with
' the Island. In other words a duplication
,of the present C. P. R. system at some
other point. The Week has never worried
very much about, this because it believes
that as a policy it puts the cart before the
horse, ami has maintained that the practical policy is to get after the Government,
and induce them to get after the railway
magnates to secure more railway building
on Vancouvlr Island. Thc key-note is,
develop Vancouver Tsland first and connection with tbe Mainland will become indispensable. The question then arises,
who can be induced to build railways on
the Island ? Obviously thos? who alreadv
have some interest at stake. Mr. Hays,
the President of the G. T. P., has recently
stated that an integral part of his company's plans is to build from the North
to the South of the Island, but he does not
say when this is likely to be clone, and is
probably looking far into the future. The
Canadian Northern have recently determined their route from the Yellow Head
pass to English Bluff; they have not yet
selected their terminal on Vancouver
Island. The original idea was a fast ferry'
service from English Bluff to Victoria,
making the trip in three hours, but it has
since been urged that it will be better if
rhey can be induced to ferry to a point
near Sydney whicli would shorten the
water trip by two hours and compel them
to build a railway, connected with Victoria. If the Canadian Northern can
once be induced to put their foot on Vancouver Island it is realised that a company of their enterprise will not stop at
a short branch line and no doubt this
policy is a sound one. Nothing would be
better news than that Premier McBride
had been able to bring about such an arrangement. There are other railways to
be built which might well be taken up by
the Canadian Northern ancl no doubt will
be unless the C. P. E. get busy. The
Week has always urged that the best thing
that could happen would be if the C.P.R.
should be induced to continue the E. & N.
railway, to the North end of the Island.
It was hoped when they made a start two
years, ago from Wellington towards Alberni that it meant speedy construction.
There is much disappointment at the slow
rate of progress. No'doubt this can be
explained, perhaps satisfactorily, but it. is
nevertheless disappointing. In view of the
possibility along the lines of mining, lumbering, ancl agriculture tliere is undoubtedly sufficient inducement for any company
to come in, ancl a waiting policy will*
prove to be a mistake.
Labour
Troubles.
Strikes and rumours of
strikes seem to be the order
of the day just now, and the
matter is getting serious.
There is a screw loose somewhere wheu as
good a measure as the Lemieux Conciliation Act is so conspicuous a failure as it
has recently proved to be in Nova Scotia.
The Government has frankly admitted that
it lias exhausted its powers and can do
nothing'more. Of course the essence of
Conciliation is disposition to be conciliated, unless both parties are.honestly
.desirous of settling their differences conciliation can have no effect, lt is not like
arbitration, which can be made legally
binding and herein lies both its strength
and its weakness. Its strength in that the
absence of fetters is conducive to amiability', its weakness in that the conclusions are
ineffective except by the will of the parties.*
Conciliation has achieved many victories
for a quarter of a century. It has prevented any serious strike in South Wales,
the most populous coal mining district iu
the world. It has been conspicuously successful in connection with many Canadian
disputes, but it is not popular with American Labor organizations. Its methods are
too peaceful. It leaves too little opportunity for the professional agitator to exploit his peculiar gifts, and so the U. M.
W. A., an alien organization, has taken up
arms against it. The result has been disastrous, five thousand coal miners have been
on strike in Cape Breton for more than a
month, there have been scenes of violence
and attempted outrage. The loss to the
community is enormous and the Wtter feeling engendered will for a long time to
come render conciliation difficult, if not,
impossible. Now the Spring Hill miners
have gone out, at the same behest, and if
the directors of the Company carry out
their intention the mines will be closed
indefinitely. In both these cases the main
issue is alien versus local organizations.
There ought to be no question as to the
result. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1909
The Lords and the
Commons
BV BOHEMIAN.
It is obvious that the Colonial
press is still a long way from appraising correctly the attitude of the
English people towards their great institutions. It is difficult for a new
country to realise that England has
long ago solved the problem of making those institutions serve its purpose. The absolute independence of
public opinion at home is one of the
most remarkable features of a country which abounds in surprises to the
uninitiated. What Canadians for in?
stance cannot understand is that "the
balance of power" is not held by
either political party, but by a body
of men who alternately support both,
and who show not the slightest compunction in sending them about their
business when their usefulness is at
an end. This explains why Governments with enormous majorities have
been unable to live out their full term.
No sooner do they get out of harmony with the sentiment of the country on any important question than
the process of disintegration sets in,
bye-election after bye-election registers an adverse verdict, and before
they know it the Government is seated on the opposition benches. With
the House of Lords the result is different, although the principle works
in precisely the same manner. Lord
Lansdowne summed up the situation
the other day when he said that the
Lords would bow to the verdict of the
country. The Lords have always
done so, and therefore it cannot be
charged against them that they have
acted unconstitutionally. It is inconceivable that once the opinion of the
constituency has been registered upou
a definite issue the Lords would oppose it to the extent, of vetoing legislation to give it effect, but as Lord
Lansdowne very properly points out
iri the present dispute the country has
had no opportunity of pronouncing its
opinion. It is' true that it put the
Liberal Government in power, but it
had no knowledge of the kind of
Budget Mr. Lloyd-George would produce, and it is certain that if its Socialistic features had been presented
■ on the Hustings the result of the last
general election would have been
very different. But whether this opinion is correct or not the demand of
the Lords that the issue shall be laid
before the country is both reasonable
and constitutional, and this is where
Mr. Winston Churchill comes on the
scene. His retort to a man of the
calibre of Lord Lansdowne would be
amusing if it were not impertinent,
but let that pass; assuming that he
speaks for the Government their intention is to appeal to the country
against the Lords if the hereditary
chamber even so much as a lay a
finger upon the Budget Bill. He says
it must not change, excise or mutilate.
Well it is certain that the Lords will
both change and excise; whether the
process will be regarded as a mutilation depends upon the standpoint of
the critic, and his choice of epithets.
It would be more interesting to watch
the attitude of Mr. Churchill after
than before the event. The Lords
have on many occasions refused to
carry out the wishes of the Commons.
They have exercised their constitutional right of veto, and have been
threatened with dire penalties in consequence, but they still survive. Indeed, after twenty-five years' agitation in the. Radical Party they have
neither been "ended" or "mended"
and no plan has as yet been submitted for dealing with them which
has met with popular favour. The
attitude of the English people towards
so venerable an institution, is that
while it may have its faults it is in
the main both useful and necessary;
indeed increasingly so in face of the
growth of socialistic ideas. The latter
have not met with the cordial recep-

tion in England which their exponents anticipated, and it may be that
they will receive their quietus at the
hands of the constituencies when the
latter uphold the action of the Lords
in vetoing a Socialistic budget. This
is a matter of speculation, but it contains a greater element of probability
than that they will destroy the House
of Peers at the bidding of Mr. Winston Churchill or Mr. Lloyd-George.
The August issue of Westward Ho!
is essentially a fiction number, and
the half-score of snappy stories are
just the right kind for Summer reading. Of the regular departments, even
that of "Country and Suburban

ton, is in a light vein and his articles
are always instructive.
The fight that this western monthly
is putting up for recognition is worth
while and now that Percy Godenrath, the founder, has resumed the
active management, after an absence
of five months in the East, readers
can rest assured that Westward Hoi
will again come into its own.

OB MAGICAL BEAUTIFIES
BEAUTY THAT LASTS.
Where is the woman who has not
the praiseworthy desire to enhance
her personal charms and preserve as
long as possible her delightful power
of enchantment, which lasts as long
as her heauty? The Oriental Cream,
prepared by Dr. T. Felix Gouraud, of
New York City, is a harmless preparation for preserving the delicacy
of the complexion and removing
blemishes. It is the favorite toilet
article of the leading professional
artists, who owe so much of their
popularity to their personal charms.
Scarcely a star dressing room in the
land is without Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, which is the most wholesome
and perfect beautifier known. Druggists will supply you. No, 8.

Victoria Theatre.
Direct from Weber's Music Hall,
New York, where it has enjoyed a
long and successful run, "The Girl
from Rector's" comes to the Victoria
Theatre for an engagement of one
night, Tuesday, August 17th. Paul
M. Potter, who is well remembered
by the theatre-going public by his
dramatization of Du Maurier's celebrated novel "Trilby," is the author
of the comedy, the theme of which
has been taken from Pierre Veber's
"Loute," which ran in Paris for nearly
two years. The story deals with a
young society woman whose husband
is away most of the time and who,
tiring of the quiet life of the little
place in which she lives, relieves the
monotony by going to New York and
under an assumed name enters into
the gay life of the city. Upon returning home, she comes face to face with
several who had known her in the
metropolis as "The Girl from Rector's" and who had themselves travelled under an alias. The complications can easily be imagined and furnish continual laughter until the final.'
The company includes John J. Clark,
Dwight Allen, William Sellery, Edward Burton, Charles Sherman, Laura
Lyman, Beth Tate, Carrie Webber,
Isabelle O'Madigan, Grace Barton,
Marie Tower and the three Pendleton sisters, who will introduce their
famous "whirlwind" dance in the
second act.
New Grand Theatre.
Selbini and Grovini, acrobats, tumblers, jugglers and acrobatic cyclists,
with the only unsurpassed act of its
kind in the world, will be at the New
Grand Theatre next week to give an
exhibition of their acrobatics out of
the ordinary. Juggling while riding
cycles, throwing the man while the
woman is riding from her shoulders,
tremendous strength exhibitions by
the woman and other sensational happenings are billed. The act is full of
hard work, the result of years of
study and practice.
The Three La Maze Bros., who are
just returning from a trip around the
world, will furnish most of the comedy next week. They are eccentric
comedy acrobats and cause a perfect
storm of laughter all the time while
011 the stage. The clown comedian
is in a class by himself and his comedy falls and tumbles almost send
the audiences into hysterics.
"The Millionaire and the Ice Man"
is the title of a funny skit which McFarland and Murray will produce and
which will provide a lot of laughter.
Will Morrisey, well known on all the
circuits as "The College Boy," is on
next week's bill also, and Charles
and Ada Kalmo, singers and dancers,
will give, a bright and effective act before tjje footlights with several new
songs atyj dances together. Thomas
J. Price has for next week's song
Naoma,"* and there will be the usual
new motion pictures.

Take some tender steaks, beat them a little, season with a saltspoonful pepper ancl a teaspoonful salt* to a two-pound steak; put bits of butter size of a walnut over the whole
surface, dredge a teaspoonful flour over, then roll up and cut in pieces two inches long;
put a rich pie paste around the side and bottom of a tin dish; put in the pieces of steak,
nearly fill the basin with water, add a piece of butter size of a large egg cut small, dredge
in a teaspoonful flour; add a little pepper and salt, lay skewers across the basin, roll a
top crust to half an inch thickness, cut a slit in centre, dip your fingers in flour and
neatly pinch the top ancl side crust together all round the edge. Bake one hour in a
quick gas oven.
Fine results in your cooking can only be expected
if the heat of your oven is just right. If you use
a gas range you will be able to regulate the heat to
a nicety. There's nothing uncertain about gas,
therefore it is the best fuel for any class of cooking.
For the baking of bread, pies, cakes, etc. it is
absolutely unrivalled.
Summer cooking has no terror to the housewife
who dreads a hot kitchen, when a gas stove is
installed. Even on the hottest day she can prepare
a many course meal with gas and yet keep her
kitchen delightfully cool and pleasant. The ideal
summer kitchen is unquestionably the one in which
gas is used for cooking.
We will gladly give you particulars of our gas ranges and stoves for the asking. Pleased
to see you in our shoAvrooms at any time. Remember a visit here places you under no
obligation to purchase.    Easy terms of payment if you desire.

I am going to devote my column
this week to the subject of the races,
where 1 have lounged on various occasions during the last two months.
It goes without saying that I am in
favour of horse racing, as every Englishman is, and to that extent may not
be an unprejudiced observer.
Let me deal first of all with the
"grousers," and they may be placed
in three classes: first, those who kick
on the ground that the races have
interfered with business and claim
that the City has not benefited in a
pecuniary sense. My opinion is that
this complaint is like Smith's Hill
reservoir—it will not hold water.
What are the facts? That not less
than live hundred, and probably a
thousand, people have paid a two
months' visit to Victoria. They must
all have purchased their food and
drink here, and the majority of them
their lodging. On a moderate estimate these items alone must have ensured the expenditure of $1,500 a day,
making a total of at least $100,000.
It would be a very moderate estimate
that half as much has been spent in
other ways, totalling $150,000. Over
the whole of the Meet I do not think
that it would be extravagant to place
the expenditure of daily visitors for
various purposes at $50,000, so that
at least $200,000 has been spent among
the tradesmen of the city. In addition from 400 to 500 horses have been
fed, but suppose it is assumed that
only a few persons have benefited under this head, and that the purses put
up by the Country Club have gone
to pay stable expenses. Let it also be
assumed that the dollars paid at the
gate for admission were a fair exchange for the sport.    It then conies

down to a question of what the visitors havc brought into the city and
what the betting ring has taken out,
and it is on this latter point that I
think I can give the public some interesting information.
In consequence of the close man- j
agement   and   strict   oversight,   for:
which  public opinion  is  responsible, |
the Victoria race meeting is by common  consent  the best conducted in
the annals of the sport. Crooked work
has been looked after and punished.
I do not mean by this that nothing
has escaped the attention of the stewards, because I can site several specific   instances   in   which  the   usual
practices of crooked owners and jockeys have been attempted, and in a
few instances successfully, but on the
whole the public have been protected
by honest management to the fullest
possible extent. This is proved by
the fact that for the first two weeks
of the meeting most of the bookmakers lost money, and three stands
went out of business. For sometime
only four book-makers held their own.
Latterly the number has jumped up
to ten, and the ring is doing better,
mainly as the result of (close prices,
but I have it on the best authority
that the total winnings of the bookmakers from first to last will not exceed $50,000; and this divided among
ten and for a sixty days' meet, is
extremely moderate, in fact so moderate that there would soon be an
end of book-making if i.t could not
be improved on elsewhere.   If these THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1909

jigures are even approximately correct
It will be seen that there is substantial credit balance in favour of the
Sjty against the outsiders, and I think
l.he financial argument is disposed of.
The second kick has subsided, but
Jt was raised against the objection-
lible elements which are invariably attracted to a race meeting. On this
boint I wish to say that in a long experience I have never seen so little
tf this element, and certainly never
Jeen it so well behaved. The mere
Lresence of two or three officers has
jbeen sufficient to ensure order, indeed
tot once has there been the slightest
Ividcnce of unruliness or a disposition
Ito make trouble. There lias been a
■noticeable absence of toughs, and
the meeting has attracted what may,
Ivitliout abuse of a much abused term,
[be called a respectable gathering. Enjoyment has been the key-note, bet-
ling has only been indulged in in mod-
Icratiun and it is;, safe to say that an
■average of two thousand people have
■had innocent enjoyment, with a tinge
lof excitement, every afternoon since
■the meeting commenced. The Coun-
Itry Club has sfiown that it could
ltlo what it set out to do—conduct that
Irare anomaly, a respectable race meet-
ling.
This brings me to the third class of
■objectors—those who condemn the
[race meeting solely because betting
lis allowed. The answer to this is
[first of all that no one is obliged to
[bet if he doesn't wish; next, that it
[is a subject upon which there is an
[honest difference of opinion. Those
[who think it is wicked oppose it in
[religious grounds, and their views are
[entitled to respect, but that does not
[give them the right to impose their
[wishes upon the balance of the com-
[raunity. The next point is that there
[can be no racing without betting, and
[the suggestion to have racing at the
■Fall Fair without it is ridiculous.
[When all race horses are owned by
[millionaires who are willing to spend
[large sums of money to keep the
[sport alive then it may be possible
Ito eliminate official betting, but as
[long as the world lasts it is probable
Ithat whenever and wherever two men
I meet they will want to back their
1 opinion as to which of two horses will
Iwin, and this is where the opponents
lof betting make a mistake. They lose
I sight of the inherent tendency of
[human nature to bet, to gamble, or to
[speculate which ever you like to call
lit.
Betting is by no means confined to
Jhorse racing, the element of speculation enters into almost every business
[transaction, indeed it is the salt of
[business. The man who buys a lot,
lor a share, or an interest in anything
|does so on the expectation of the
[value going up; he is speculating in
[futures in the most absolute sense.
[The only difference is that the man
[who puts up his dollar on a race horse
[finds out in a few minutes instead of
ja few months or a few years whether
[the gamble is a good one. The argu-
Iment could be indefinitely extended;
[there are few steps taken in life which
are not based upon uncertainty, and
[the expectation of advantage. It is
■safe to say that this principle is specially applicable to the development
of a new country, for who would
have the heart to expose themselves
to the trials, sufferings and hardships
of the prospectors' or the pioneers'
life, but for the expectation of turning a few dollars into thousands. I
do not say that the two cases are
parallel, but I do maintain that the
underlying principle is the same, and
that if you could once reduce even
business to the level of simple investment at two or three per cent, instead of speculation looking for SO
or 100 per cent, on the same outlay
you would reduce life to a hum-drum,
monotonous existence, hardly worth
having at the price.
For these reasons, and a few others
which 1 could mention, but that I
have used up all my space, I think
that the ictoria Country Club has justified its existence. It has demonstrated that it can conduct a respectable race meeting, but it has demonstrated a goocl deal more, viz., that
the love of sport is so inherent in
the people of Victoria that it will
sustain a longer race meeting than
has ever been held before in a city
of 40,000 inhabitants, and sustain it
without any diminution of interest.
