|UDGE LAMPMAN'S REPORT
Judge Lampman,  the  Commissioner
Ippointed by the Provincial Government
investigate certain charges preferred
gainst the Police Commissioners by the
Victoria Times, and incidentally to en-
luire into matters affecting the Police ad-
liinistration, has handed in his report.
Ill the findings pertinent to the specified
pork of the Commission have been pub-
(shed;  certain opinions of the Commis-
loner upon matters not directly within the
hope of the Enquiry, but arising there-
[•om, have been withheld from publication
what The Week ventures to. think is the
lise discretion of the Government.    The
limes is clamouring for publication of
lery detail, and very disingenuously sug-
psts that the suppressed paragraphs refect Upon the Police or the Police Com-
lissioners.   No other paper but the Times
ould have the gracelessness to make such
I suggestion after what has taken place;
jit the Liberal organ has fallen down so
Idly in the matter of its charges that no
Irprise will be felt at its present atti-
|de.   Apart from the fact that opinions
the social evil, even from Judge Lamp-
Ian, would hardly furnish fireside read-
Ig, it must be borne in mind that the
pmmissioner himself might reasonably
Iject to obtruding his views on such a
llicate subject upon the public notice,
directing attention to this  point the
fines is simply drawing attention from
own failure to make good the charges
(inch it so freely bandied about in its
llumns for some weeks before the Com-
lission was appointed.   What were those
jiarges  Specifically, that the Police Com-
lissioners had been guilty of conduct in
pnnection with gambling and houses of
prostitution which involved malfeasance
a public office, and disentitled them to
le confidence of the community.   But the
liarges went further; they alleged that the
lonservative Party had formed an organ-
■lation which might be called a local Tam-
lany, and that the Party, through this
lammany, received the product of graft
lid illgotten gains arising from the active
|)-operation, or the supineness, of the Po-
ce  Commissioners   in   connection with
ambling and houses of prostitution.    It
fill be seen from this that the Times
[as, as usual, more intent upon trying to
lake political capital than in exposing
■legality, or in remedying its evil conse-
liiences.    At  any rate,  these were the
liarges.   When placed in tlie witness box,
lie editor of the Times had to admit, as
Teryone knew, that ho had no personal
liowledge of the matters complained of,
liat he depended upon information furn-
Ihed by a well-known citizen (who gave
Tidenco during thc case), and upon genial rumour.   If tlie Times had confined
j_elf to repeating what its informant said,
lithout adding thereto its own imputa-
on of motives, it would at least have
line out of the investigation without dis-
ledit.    Of course, it is the duty of an
liter to weigh the value of statements,
Id to publish them only when he is readably satisfied that they are true; and
j the present instance it may be admitted
at the person from whom the editor of
Times derived his information is noxiously better posted on the subject than
ly man in the city, and therefore the
Titer of the Times was justified in rely
ing upon his statements, but this informant had nothing to say about the local
"Tammany," and the implication of the
Conservative Party in the particular species of graft referred to.   This was an addition of the editor, it is where he showed
the cloven hoof, and where he becomes disentitled to any consideration now that the
findings of the Commissioner have entirely
discredited his charges.   Judge Lampman
finds that the Commissioners leave the
Court with clean hands, that no suspicion
whatever attaches to them, and that there
is no evidence which implicates other persons.   This shatters tho Times' unlimited
funds for the Conservative organization
derived from illicit trafficking in vice.   It
is perhaps unnecessary to say that such an
idea could not have entered the head of
any man in Victoria but the editor of the
Times.   This exhausts the specific findings
of the Commissioner, but it by no means
exhausts the matters touched upon during
the hearing in which the public has a very
definite interest.   The Week shared with
the Times the responsibility of suggesting
a Commission; it did so from practically
the same evidence; but it refrained from
indulging in imputations against any persons, and expressed the belief, before the
Commission was appointed, that the Police Commissioners themselves were free
from blame.   All that The Week stated'
was proved in Court to the satisfaction
of those who heard the evidence.   Where
the case fell down was in failing to carry
the charges to any particular person. With
respect to gambling it, was shown that in
1907, when Mayor Morley was the self-
nominated Apostle of a social purity campaign, and while he was. harrassing, and
even   persecuting,   all   the   saloon men,
Chinatown   was   running  wide:open—in
fact, more wide-open than it had run for
some years.   It was shown that although
there was a pretence at that time of forming a "restricted district" and forcing all
the disorderly houses into one locality, the
most notorious woman in town opened up
negotiations with the Mayor, and as a result was able to retain her house outside
the restricted district.   It was also proved
that two other notorious houses have been
allowed to continue tlieir business up town,
in the centre of the business district.   It
was proved that gambling had been carried on in Chinatown, and also by several
professional white gamblers, during the
present year,  and since Mayor Morley
started   his   "moral   suasion"   campaign
among  the  leading   Chinese  merchants.
The evidence of Detective Clayards—than
whom a more truthful man does not exist
—satisfied all who heard him that if the
truth could be exposed it would be found
that gamblers were undoubtedly paying
someone for the privilege of law-breaking.
It was proved that the tenants of disorderly houses were paying fabulous rents, ranging as The Week specifically stated before the enquiry began, from $200 to $500
a month; and one scoundrel was proved
to be receiving $1,000 a month rental for
five wooden shacks which would not be
worth $100 for any legitimate purpose.
If the confirmation of these statements,
which The Week undertook to publish,
does not justify the appointment of the
Commission, nothing would.    The mere
failure to trace the guilt to individuals is
of far less importance than to have demonstrated a condition of things which is
a disgrace to  any civilized community,
and which is in every sense inimical to
the public interest.    Now that the facts
are known, public opinion will demand
that a remedy be applied.    On the subject of a restricted district The Week has
nothing to add to what it has been forced
to say on several occasions, but it ventures
to think that the following positive results must follow the revelations which
have been made: A stop must be put
to the extortion of fabulous sums from
the unfortunate keepers of disorderly
houses under the pretext of rent; there
must be no making fish of one and fowl
of another, if there is to be a restricted
district all disorderly houses must be compelled to stay within it, and the disgrace
of such places being dotted about in business and residential sections of the city
must at once be removed; and with respect
to gambling, there must be no removing
of the bandages from the eyes of Justice
in order to see whether the offender is a
white man or a yellow man before the police raid is made. The Chinaman has as
much right to break the law as the white
man, and neither has any such right; but
it is an anomaly which common sense and
intelligence will refuse to recognize that
the properly organized and registered clubs
of Chinatown should be raided, while the
no less notorious law-breaking institutions
up-town are allowed to flourish.
HORSE RACING
Mr. Geo. A. Fraser, the Managing
Director of the Country Club, announces
that he has arranged for a six-day race
meeting at the Agricultural Grounds the
last week in M'ay. The announcement has
been received with gratification by the citizens of Victoria, or at any rate by the vast
majority who desire to participate in a
little innocent and entertaining recreation.
No lover of the sport wished to see another sixty days' meet, and many lovers
of the sport, including The Week, would
have been glad if professional betting had
been rendered illegal; but in this best of
all worlds, no one can have his own way
all the time, and on the principle that half
a loaf is better than no bread, moral reformers ought to be glad that the race
meeting has been cut down to a reasonable
length, and that it will be under the control of a man of the character and status
of Mr. Fraser. By another year, it is probable that professional betting will have
received its quietus, and that the Paris
Mutuelle system will have been legalized
throughout the Dominion. Meanwhile, it
may be taken for granted that the May
meeting will be a credit to all concerned;
and if any member of the community, or
any editor of a family journal, is so weak-
kneed that he cannot attend the race meeting without falling from grace, tliere will
be nothing to prevent him from staying
at home while all Victoria is enjoying
itself at the Agricultural Grounds. In
this connection, it may be well to point out
tliat the respected editor of the Colonist
is objecting to the race meeting, not on
moral but on financial grounds. Presumably, he would be in its favour if tho
City made a pecuniary gain. Thc Week
does not think that the ground is wt__
chosen, for not long ago the Colonist itself
was arguing that the benefits which a
community derived from a good theatre,
for instance, was not entirely a matter
of dollars and cents; ancl it should remember that there are many people in
our midst who have conscientious scruples
against theatre-going. But The Week
would respectfully point out, on the authority of the Directors of the Country
Club, that there is something wofully
wrong with the Colonist's arthmetic. While
it carefully under-estimates every item on
the credit side—such as the cost of feeding
men and horses—and while it states the
number of horses at exaotly half the num
ber actually here, it multiplies the supposed winnings of the bookmakers by
twenty, or thereabouts. The Week is officially informed that the Club's book did
not win more than $5,000, and that this
represents a larger winning than the average of the professional books. Of the
latter, there were not more than eight in
constant operation; so that $40,000 would
represent the total winnings of the professional bookmakers. The Directors of
the Country Club have placed themselves
on record in support of this statement. In
order to make out his case against the
meeting, the editor of the Colonist has to
assume the enormous total of $840,000
gross, or $672,000 net. Who is likely to
know best—the Gauntry Club, or the editor
of the Colonist? If the case against the
meeting has to be bolstered up by such
grotesque exaggerations the lovers of the
"Sport of Kings" need have little fear of
losing their recreation.
THE PUBLIC HIGHWAY
Some thousands of people will have
read the admirable letter of Mr. Clive
Phillipps-Wolley which appeared in the
Colonist a. few days ago. He told of what
might have been a catastrophe at Duncan, on Sunday last, when two hair-
brained motor-cyclists ran amuck on a
country road, just as people were returning from church. The Week has always
been a friend of the motor car and the
cycle; it believes that both are indispensable in this age of high-speed living; but
it does not believe that the old-time adage,
' live and let live," is obsolete and unless
peaceful citizens are to take the law into
their own hands the Police will have to
exercise greater vigilance in detecting
scorchers, and the magistrates will have
to impose more exemplary sentences. No
one wishes to curtail the pleasures of the
automobilist or the cyclist, so long as he
exercises due regard for the public safety;
but in and around Victoria such regard
is conspicuous by its absence. The Week
has a suggestion to make; it is that the
numbers should be placed at the front and
the back of the car, and in such a position that a lamp shall show them up
when the car is running at night. It is the
get-away speed of the automobilist which
constitutes him a public danger; and it is
manifestly unfair to those of his own cult
who exercise due caution that he should be
allowed to place the whole fraternity under
a cloud.
THE FOOD QUESTION
Things move rapidly in the West. It
is not necessary to look backAvard ten years
to note phenomenal development; indeed,
even three years would chronicle an expansion of business and population in Victoria ancl Vancouver which few realize.
Time was when the talk of a Transcontinental railway through British Columbia sounded like a fairy tale; now we arc
in the throes of the agitation consequent
upon building two, ancl contemplating two
or three others. Meanwhile, the population of Vancouver is increasing by leaps
ancl bounds; it has jumped from 25,000
at last census to at least 100,000, and
Victoria has started the same gait. The
Week respectfully ventures to suggest that
the problem of the near future will be
how to feed these people, and no preparation is bing made except to import costly
food from a country which is rapidly
exporting its own food-producers. Here
is ground for serious reflection. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 19™

At The Street   }
Corner \
By THE LOUNGER &
The other day I saw a crowd
watching something in thc street with
great interest, ancl being a Lounger
I strolled over to the scene. I saw a
waggon covered with wire, and inside
the vehicle about half a dozen poor
wretched dogs of all breeds and sizes.
I thought at first that a travelling
menagerie was passing through the
town, and looked round for the elephants and monkeys. At the back of
the cart a man was seated armed with
what looked like an elongated butterfly net to secure thc unfortunate
canines whose masters thought so
little of their pets as to omit to take
out the necessary passport to protect them from such an indignity.
This tax is $2 a year. I say nothing
against the tax itself; it is necessary,
and protects the dog's owner, but I
do think some other means of enforcing it might be employed than chasing poor wretched animals through
the streets in this manner. In some
cases they scare thc life out of inoffensive dogs only to find out when
secured that the.tag is attached to the
collar.   Thc animals are released but
not before being thoroughly frightened. To add to their misery a band
of small boys throwing things at the
dogs to make them run away from
their would-be captors, only added to
the poor creatures' discomfort.
* *     *
The water cart is a refreshing object nowadays. This huge barrel
perched on wheels looks as if it
ought to be filled with beer. Just
imagine if it was, chasing it down
the street with a milk can under one
arm, and an umbrella under the other.
If Miss Carrie Nation was on the
Victoria Council, probably, it would
be beer, as it would be in keeping
with her ideas of the fitness of things
to . prinkle "the horrid stuff" from all
the saloons in the Town onto the
roadway, and follow along behind joyously dancing a can-can, and brandishing her saloon scalping tomahawk
in thc air, to the accompaniment of
"Come and    have    a    tidley    at the
Fountain."
* *     *
There is a perilous place in Government Street where thc building of the
new Royal Bank of Canada is being
erected, and another further up the
street on the same side. In both
cases thc hoarding comes out well into thc roadway in close proximity to
the car line and although one hears
the bell of the approaching car one
does not realize how close thc car
really is, in. passing. When two or
three people are passing at once it
congests the available space still further, and if the step of the car in motion caught one the result would be
disastrous. The other day whilst
walking by this spot, accompanied by
my joyful hound, I got mixed up in
a crowd who were all in a hurry to
get by at once, there was an elderly
female, a man on a bicycle, and a boy
with a basket of eggs. No one seemed inclined to wait whilst the rest
passed—the bicycle wobbled, the
eggs looked like "omletting" on the
road and the elderly female who was
not of slender build, looked askance
first at the car and then at her own
ample proportions, but we all got
through by a short head.
*     *     *
I notice that thc orchestra at the
Victoria Theatre disappears at the
conclusion of each act under the
stage, instead of regaling the audience with musical selections. I always thought that was mainly what
the orchestra was there for, but apparently it is not so, and the audience
sit in a hushed expectancy with no
music waiting for thc curtain to go
up, and speculating as to whether Angela who at the close of the preceding
act was on the verge of suicide has
thought better of it and will be seen
as the curtain rises in the act of laying the breakfast table for another
awful day.
Victoria seems to bc a great place
for dandelions.   In front of the Gov-
OB Banff Old Banff
There are a lot of good whiskies on the market, and, alas,
some very bad ones (THEY are for every reason unmentionable), but OLD BANFF, some people know, and very good
judges at that of old Highland malt whisky, beats them all, or
shall we say (to say the least) Old Banff equals ANY, age
for age. It has never before been obtainable retail, being only
sold to the large blenders at home. It is now, therefore, up
to you, the public, to test and try it for yourselves. Submit
it to ANY test or comparison, or analysis you like. It has
all the essential requirements the severest critic can demand—
quality, absolute purity, a guarantee of age on every bottle
by the distillers, James Simpson & Sons, Limited, established
1823, Banff, Scotland, a guarantee that may be implicitly
relied on, and the price is all right—quite moderate. So ask
your dealer for it. Have it in your home. Call for it in your
favorite saloon, in your hotel and on the Princesses.

ernment buildings the lawn is covered
with them and they flourish in many
other parts of the city. They make a
very nice salad, I am told. Personally I much prefer to see this homely
little weed growing to eating it. The
humble daisy is not much in evidence.
Harking back to the lawn in front of
Government buildings the rhododendrons are a perfect wealth of colour.
It is a pity the Empress Hotel
grounds look rather bare in comparison. There are a few other vacant
spots in Victoria whicii might with
advantage be planted with rlioden-
drons. „     #     „,
I don't know what the cause is but
the smell just opposite the Empress
Hotel on the waterfront is not very
pleasant. On a warm day it seems
more pungent than at other times,
ancl instead of getting a whiff of ozone
from the sea one gets a totally different kind of scent and as the music
hall singer calls it "not all lavender."
Apropos of smells the visitor who
first lands in Victoria from the outer
wharf would not imagine he was in
a perfume factory for instance, as the
odoriferous whiff from the chemical
factory do not favour that idea.
At the risk of being put down as
plagarist I must once more comme
on the state of the roads.    The o
in particular I have in my mind's e
is Bastion Street.   This is one of tl
principal streets in town; do not t
lawyers and solicitors pace this ha
owed spot daily, ancl are they not
be  considered  as  the "lilies  of t
field?"    The road reminds one of
switch back railway; it must feel li
that too; in a motor car, or on a bic
cle, it is all holes and lumps, and
quite  pathetic  in  its  neglect.    W
can't it ahve some new wooden brie
laid down with some nice sticky
smeared over it like the other strei
have?   See how good it is for tra<
for the bootmakers and clothiers, al
carpet salesmen, as the tar sticks
one's boots and adheres to anythi
it comes into contact with.   Its a b
road whicii  does  nobody any  go<
See how nice a white dress looks t
after   crossing   these   tar   bestre
streets and incidentally the car Hi

How monotonous life would be if
had no little worries of this kind
no grievances. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1910
MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
'he  Choral  Society's  First  Concert
The first concert of the Choral So-
iety of Victoria at the Victoria
'heatre, on Wednesday, April 27th,
ras a striking success. The theatre
/as full and the concert went without
hitch   from   start  to   finish.    The
rst  part  was  "The  Pied  Piper  Of
famelin."   The story is well known
nd  was  well   rendered  by  the  full
loir  of    seventy-three   performers.
reat  credit  must  be  given  to  Mr.
deon  Hicks,    the    conductor,  ancl
iss Miles, A.R.C.M., the accompan-
:, for the time and harmony of the
erformance, and in no lesserwise to
ie choir themselves.
The end of the first part gave Mrs.
llman an opportunity of charming
e audience with her fine soprano
_ice; her high notes were perfect
d melodious and her two delightful
dian songs were much appreciated.
r. Cave, who is the possessor of a
ie tenor voice, next sung three Ital-
n songs, the second one gave him
ope to prove himself a singer of
ark.
The second part, "The Swan and
e Skylark," was more tuneful than
e first part, and gave greater scope
r soloists. Among these, Mrs. Gi-
011 Hicks, with her splendid con-
llto  voice,  gave great  pleasure  to
appreciative audience.
We trust that this concert will be
llowed by others in the future and
at we shall again havc the oppor-
uity of listening to such perfectly
lined voices.
The Allen Players
Miss Vema Felton and her popu-
supporting company still continue
draw good houses at the Victoria
eatre, and it is safe to say that
ey will, as long as they present the
ine class of attractions as they have
to the present time. Their cos-
mes, scenery, and general efficiency
e something new to Victoria audi-
ces, in the line of stock companies,
iss Verna Felton is a star in her
ie of work; indeed, after seeing her
such vastly different roles as we
ve up to the present time, it is
rd to say which is her special line.
ut there is no doubt that she is an
otional actress, and a good one too.
er portrayal of the part of "Cigar-
te," in "Under Two Flags," was
onderful, and was as realistic and
tural a piece of acting as we have
itnessed for many a long day. In
ct the whole company, in the wri-
's  estimation,  excelled themselves
this production, and they were well
serving of the large houses which
eeted them on Monday and Tues-
y nights. Their repertoire for next
eek is as follows: Monday and Tues-
y, "Mrs. Dane's Defence"; Wednes-
y and Thursday, "The Second Mrs.
nqueray"; Friday and Saturday,
'he Widow From Tokio." The two
st named are heavy emotional bills,
hile the last is    a comedy    drama.
e bill will also be used for the
atinee on Saturday afternoon. This
oks like a splendid repertoire for
ie week, and should please Victoria
eatre-goers.
New Grand Theatre
At the Grand Theatre next week
U be the best American exponents
horizontal bar work, the Wilton
os., who are not only the greatest
this line from a sensational stand-
int, but have few equals for cre-
ng laughter and merriment.
Among the feats offered for the
tertainment of Victoria lovers of
udeville are the giant swings, at
ich the Wiltons are adepts, the
uble catches and triple bounds
lich are thrilling and nerve ting-
g. The Wiiton Bros, are the spe-
feature of the programme next
ek.
\ delightful musical offering will be
ranced by the Longworths, who
e received the most flattering press
ices on this tour. The man is a
or and his partner a soprano. With
iano on the stage, which they both
play, and with songs and solos entertain very merrily for twenty minutes.
Smith and Arado, a pair of comedians, will offer a laughing hit called
"Just For Fun." Their repertoire includes a catchy limerick song and
they also do some eccentric dancing.
The act is classed a good all round.
Emil Chevriel, the premier violinist,
uses for a bow a cuff, a feather, a cap
pistol, a small washboard and a shoe.
He plays appropriate tuned with each,
and with the regular bow entertains
with a number of popular aris, and
as an encore offers an imitation of
the bagpipes.
Thomas J. Price will sing the regular illustrated song and the moving
pictures will be shown as usual, a
specially attractive set of films provided.
Pantages Theatre
Pantages Theatre is still keeping up
its reputation in providing a first class
performance this week. Among other
attractions the Romanos, Australia's
Premier Athletes, in their act of Statuary and Muscular posing were well
worth seeing. This clever pair, who
also illustrate different styles of boxing, made the world's tour with
Eugene Sandow and give a very attractive show.
Empress Theatre
The pictures on view at the Empress on Friday and Saturday are
some extraordinary realistic ones,
taken on the actual shooting trip of
Ex-President Roosevelt in Central Africa and are full of lifelike scenes
and stirring action. A great attraction at this theatre also is the giving
away of a $20 gold piece. Everyone
who visits this theatre has an equal
chance of winning this sum, which is
drawn on the stage.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Rusticating
By Bohemian
It would be more appropriate if
this article were written under some
such caption as "Down where the
yellow cowslips slide," or "Far from
the madding crowd," for I am lounging in the country. Like a modern
Horace, albeit a prose, if not a prosy
one, I am luxuriating in my modern
Sabine farm, and if the snow-cooled
amphora of Falernian and the ever-
laughing Lalage are lacking, compensation is to be found in flowing bowls
of still warm milk and in the harmonious symphonies of innumerable
frogs.   With Virgil too I sing:
"O fortunatos nimium sua si bona
noriat  Agricolas,"
which might be rendered:
"Thrice blest are those who till the
the land
If they their fortune did but know."
I feel rather better now that I have
got that off my chest. The country
in early spring always affects me in
that way, but I don't know why it
should, because, though I was born
in the country, bred in the country,
and lived in the country till I was
nearer thirty than twenty, I am as
hopelessly ignorant of it as the veriest
street Arab.   I have never killed any
thing bigger than a wasp, and to this
day I can't tell the difference between
a field of young wheat and a similar
one of healthy weeds. Again, after
about a month the soles of my boots
itch for the paved sidewalks of the
city, my ears prick for the buzzing
of the street cars and my eyes yearn
wistfully for the sight of shops and
crowds. But the first few weeks
are weeks of unadulterated bliss,
sweetened by the thought of all the
unfortunates who are penned up in
the busy marts of the world. For it
is sad to say, but true, nevertheless,
The Island Newcastle has not yet
outgrown its shacks. There are few
brick buildings, and even these are
unimposing. There is an excellent
opening for a modern Nero, and the
roof of the Opera House would
make a good band-stand for a musical incendiary. The sidewalks are
mostly wooden and compare favourably with those of similar material
in Victoria; I did not come across
one leg-trap during my stay. The
1 jads are bad, but no worse than
those of the Capital which have not
been paved.    I confess to being sur*
that human nature is so constituted'prised at the excellence of the stores,
that pleasure is comparative and is
heightened by contrast with the miseries of others.
It might not be out of place to
take a stroll round Nanaimo. This is
really the first opportunity I have
had of exploring the Coal City; on
other occasions I have only been able
to spend one night en route, with
the result that my knowledge has
been very superficial, but this spring
I spent several days at the excellent
Wilson Hotel, so that I had ample
opportunity to indulge in my favourite pastime of picking out the weak
spots in a new pasture. And Nanaimo has quite a few. To begin with
the scenic advantages of one of the
prettiest harbours on the Coast have
been shamefully wasted. If the town
had been originally laid out with an
eye to system and beauty it could
have been made the rival, and a powerful one, of any city in the Province.
The curves of the city should have
followed that of the bay, and behind,
tier after tier of houses should have
been built in terrace. As it is, Commercial street, which is the principal
thoroughfare, bends in a curve diametrically opposed to the contour of
the harbour, while auxiliary streets
run into it at every conceivable angle.
Consequently it is quite easy for a
stranger to get lost in Nanaimo.
having previously indulged in the idea
that Victoria and Vancouver were the
only places where decent things
could be bought at reasonable prices.
One excellent piece of work I saw
in operation whilst breaking my journey. The Western Fuel Company
have constructed a line across the
lower end of Commercial street and
are engaged in filling in the hideous
ravine which borders on the west side
of the road. May the good work
prosper.
There is no doubt, however, of the
prosperity of Nanaimo, and its citizens evince an enterprise and energy
calculated to produce great results in
a few years. For one thing I was
astounded to mark the sagacity which
had so quickly seized on the automobile as a money-maker. Car after
car whirled away on the Alberni
road filled with surveyors, prospectors, intending land purchasers and
others. Car after car came back in
record time to pick up a second load
and to return to the summit, to Comox or to Qualicum. I am told on
good authority that lately one of
these automobile owners made $100
in fares in one day. I gathered also
from commercial men that Nanaimo
is a pretty good town in which to do
business. But the greatest factor in
the development of the city is  the
abiding faith which the citizens have
I in it, and the pride with which they
" regard it, as is well exemplified by the
following: I had been to the Hospital to look up a sick friend, and returning in the dusk, I lost my way. I
made due enquiries from a gang of
small boys, one of whom said: "Well,
mister, I should say you was wrong.
But then it ain't easy to find one's
way about when one comes to a big
city like Nanaimo." One more word;
I think that the Victoria May 24th
celebration committee might do worse
than take a trip from their Nanaimo
brethren. Round all the hotels packets of envelopes have been distributed, and carefully placed where writers will naturally pick them up.
These envelopes advertise the attractions which will induce the dwellers
in Mesopotamia to hie themselves to
the Coal City for Empire Day.
I was lucky enough to make one of
a party going north in an automobile,
a large, smooth-running Oldsmobile.
Here it is in order to make mention
of the condition of the road between
Nanaimo and Parksville, a distance
of 24 miles; other parts of the road
I have also traversed, but on Shanks'
mare, which does not discover the excellence or otherwise of the surface as
do rubber tires. Once outside the city
limits this road is kept in splendid
trim. With very few exceptions the
going is well nigh perfect. For the
most part these exceptions, occur
where the extension of the railway
intersects or parallels the highway
and are therefore unavoidable. At
the same time, considering that there
is a steam-roller in Nanaimo which is
not at present in use, it would be
well worth while to set it to work
on these portions, thereby giving the
Island one of the best, (if not the
best when scenery is taken into consideration) highways in the Province.
Construction work is now proceeding
apace; the rails have been laid as far
north   as   Englishman's   River,   and
though  the bridge  across  the creek
has not yet been built, all the ma|
terials have been  collected and th<t
construction is on the point of be!
ing commenced.   I am informed thaf
it is  the intention  of the  Companji
to run a train from Parksville to Na
naimo  on   May  24th,   but   I  cannol
vouch for the accuracy of this statef
ment.
One thing is certain.   The advenj
of the Iron Horse has created a boon
in   real   estate   in   this   part of th.
Island.   Nanaimo is getting ready fo
it and new-comers in the real estat
business   have   begun   hanging   ou
their shingles.    Land round  Parks
ville has begun to change hands an
Messrs.  Allin  & Hickey, who hav
opened a real estate office in the set
tlement are finding plenty of busines
offering.   Nor is this to be wondere
at.    Parksville enjoys    a    peculiar!
happy climatic situation; Nanoose t
the South and Qualicum and AlbeJ
ni to the North are both wet, thi
rain-jfall  in  all  three  places  beinl
heavy.   Parksville lying in the middlf
as it were, is blessed with plenty
fine weather, and possesses in cor
mon with its rivals the advantage
being on the sea.    Personally I ai
inclined to think that a few yeai
will see a very flourishing commui
ity located in this spot, and I ha;
already chosen in my mind's eye tl

A Permanent, Safe and Profitable Investment
STOCK OF
The Pacific Coast Fire
Insurance Company
Of Vancouver, British Columbia
The Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Co., of Vancouver,
B.C., was incorporated by the Legislature of the Province
of British Columbia in the year 1890, and about eight
years ago came under the present control. During this
period steady progress has been made in laying the foundation for a large and successful Fire Insurance Company.
The paid up capital has increased from $37,000.00 in
1904 to $230,000.00.
The Company is acting under a Dominion Charter and
has an active organization throughout the Dominion of
Canada as well as strong connections in the United States
and Great Britain.
REGULAR DIVIDENDS SAVE BEEN PAID TO
SHAREHOLDERS, AND, IN ADDITION TO THESE,
SUBSTANTIAL BONUSES HAVE BEEN CREDITED
The Board of Directors of this Company is composed
of eighteen of the leading business and professional men
of the West, each of whom has made a success in his own
line.
Up to the present the stock of the Pacific Coast Fire
Insurance Co. has never been offered to the general public,
but has been confined to those in control. The Directors
having, however, demonstrated that there is money to be
made in the Fire Insurance business, are now convinced
that a much greater success can be made with a larger
capitalization and with the co-operation of the leading
business men of the West.
Having therefore in view the making of the Pacific
Coast Fire Insurance Co. one of the largest and strongest
Fire Insurance companies in Canada, the Directors recently decided to increase the capitalization from $275,000.00
to $500,000.00, and a considerable proportion of this new
issue has already been taken up hy leading business men
of Vancouver and vicinity. The Directors of the Company have also recently subscribed for a large block of
the stock. Only a limited amount of the balance of this
stock will be offered in Victoria, as it has been decided to
have business men of other sections of the Dominion participate where their influence will inure to the benefit of the
Company.
That there is ample scope for the profitable investment
in a strong Canadian Fire Insurance Company is shown
from the fact that in the past ten years premiums amounting to about $100,000,000.00 have been paid by Canadians
to Companies incorporated outside of Canada. With sufficient capital invested in the business in Canada a great
part of this money would have been kept in our own
Dominion of Canada and would have materially assisted in
the developing of the resources of our own country.

THE PACIFIC COAST FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY
HAS SEVERAL DISTINCT ADVANTAGES FOR
EARNING A LARGER NET PROFIT THAN MANY
OTHER FIRE INSURANCE COMPANIES, AS SHOWN
BY THE FOLLOWING FACTS:
Practically the same safe, careful and conservative
management which has built up the British Columbia
Permanent Loan Co. to its present commanding position
controls the Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Co. From the
one Company, the very nature of its Loan business
(acknowledged by Fire Insurance experts to be "The
Cream of the Business") a large amount of premiums flow
with an extremely low expense ratio to the latter Company. Again, the interest upon investments of the capital,
surplus and reserves, is very nearly double that obtained
by other Companies located in the East.
THE PREMIUMS PAID BY BUSINESS MEN CREATE
THE PROFITS OF FIRE INSURANCE
COMPANIES
The Company particularly desires the co-operation of
business men, who can, hy the dividends paid and increase
of value of stock, reduce or entirely eliminate their Fire
Insurance expense.
About 600 shares of stock are now held in Victoria,
and stockholders almost unanimously have signified their
intention to take up their rights to subscribe to the new
issue.
Mr. J. Spencer Rogers, an Insurance expert who took a
leading part in the organization of the People's National
Fire Insurance Co., recently formed, has been secured to
bring the capitalization of the Pacific Coast Fire Insurance
Co. up to the $500,000.00 mark.
Applications for stock will be filled in the order received, and in case of over-subscription, stock will be
allotted pro rata.
The Company reserves the right to reject wholly or in
part any application for stock.
Enquiries for further details, price, and terms of payment will be furnished by—

The Beautiful "Sundour" Curtains
WILL NOT FADE
The great objection some homekeepers raise against colored materials for curtains is the fact that they fade. The curtains are
placed on the windows—exposed to the strong rays of the sun and the colors quickly fade.
We, and the makers, guarantee these Sundour Madras Muslins unfadable—a positive insurance against faded curtains. There
are no colors approaching them in permanence, and they have the beautiful quality of the finest old dyes.
This process is owned by one Scottish manufacturer, and we are the sole Victoria representatives. If you wish something out-
of-the-ordinary in design and something that'll stay that way, come in and choose from these.
A splendid lot of Madras in this new shipment. New effects which give richness and harmonies never hinted at before in Madras.
All unfadable.   Priced at, per yard, $2.00, $1.25, $1.00, 85c and 75c.
A Magnificent Assortment of Ecru Madras Muslins
The pattern in a big shipment of new ecru Madras muslins just received, are the prettiest we have shown. This shipment is a
large one and the variety of dainty patterns shown is broad. If you would see something worth while, we want you to see these new
Scotch Madras Muslins. Quality is the very best—they are the pro duct of the best Scotch factory. Brighten up your home with some
of these—the price is a secondary consideration.   We have these priced at, per yard, 75c, 60c, 50c and 40c.
Keep AU Your Furs Safe
From  Moths—Protect AH  the Winter Clothing by Storing These
Articles in Camphor Wood Trunks
Warm Spring weather is slow in coming this year. Never fear—it's be warm enough before long, and one of the problems of
the "lady of the house" will be, the storage of furs and warmer winter clothing, where they'll be absolutely safe from the ravages of the
moth. Don't worry about the matter. Here is the solution in these Camphor Wood Trunks. Moths and other insects cannot live in
these, and furs or other clothing stored in same will come out next Fall as bright and fresh and good as when they were deposited. And
the price is very little—much less than loss you might sustain without one.
Made of hardwood, polished and varnished, brass drop handles, corners, hinges and lock. We import them direct. Three sizes
are shown and are priced at $7.50, $5.50 and $2.50.   Second Floor.

WHEN HEARTS ARE TRUMP
HOUSEKEEPING  GOODS  WILL
SOON BE NEEDED
Many weddings are on the tapis, therefore it is perhaps not amiss to say
that the first essential towards good housekeeping is a good Gas Range. The
benedict-to-be should see that his bride experiences the joy of a stove that is
always ready, an oven that is always right and a heat that can be regulated
scientifically without trouble.
Home comfort cannot be assured with coal or wood
fires for cooking purposes. Don't cook the cook over
a red-hot range on a warm summer's day. Avoid this
by cooking with gas; just a turn of the tap—no
worry, no work, no waste of fuel or time. Gas
makes home comfortable in summer and winter. It
makes work light so that the housewife has more
time for recreation.
A Gas Range means that you can cook any meal
of the day, summer or winter, with ease and comfort. Let one of our men set up a gas range in
your kitchen and you will find that you have the
most modern and convenient cooking apparatus of
the age. The cost of maintenance is far less than
for a coal range.

Tit For Tat
The captain of a schooner is noted
for his wit, and on every occasion
that offers he looses his shafts of
humour, to the chagrin and embarrassment of its target. Sooner or later
the stinger gets stung, and on one
occasion, when about two days out
from New York, the captain approached a group of sailors who
were washing the forward deck, and,
singling out a big, rawboned Irishman who was experiencing his first
taste of sailor's life, he gravely asked:
"Can you steer the mainmast down
the forecastle stairs?"
Quick as a flash came the reply:
"Yis sor, I can, if you will sthand
below and coil 'er up."
A Real Chuckle-Head
"The late Representative Cush-
man," said a Tacoman, "was justly
called the 'wit of thc house.' He
never lacked an anecdote wherewith
to point and season his remarks.
"Once in a Tacoma speech, hc told
us not to be chuckle-headed, shallow
people, doing the wrong thing; deceiving none but ourselves.
" 'Don't,' he cried, 'be like the beefy
English officer!'
Then he explained that this officer
being seated next to an elderly
stranger at dinner leaned over ancl
said:
" 'Who's that fat old hippopotamus of a woman opposite?'
" 'That's my wife,' was the reply.
" 'Thanks,' asid thc officer, hastily,
Thanks. That's all I wanted to
know.'
"And he turned to his neighbour
on the other side and whispered with
a chuckle:
'"Got well out of that, I think eh?"

"Some More Sabbath Breakers"
om sinful Sabbath breaking towns
wandered over grassy downs,
In   sweeter  air  for   one   day.
t lo! a larksang overhead:
ow dare you sing," I sternly said,
"Your week-day song on Sunday?"
at wicked lark made no reply,
t went on singing in the sky.

id met a stream o'er mossy stones

That you are Sabbath breaking?"

The fatal word had just been

nations of her decision.
I trust that I have made myself
fficiently plain," she said.
Well, I would scarcely go so far,"
answered as his courage gradually
turned. "It's but fair to give na-
re the credit for that," he added as
retired in good order.
Saving the  Money
Battersby came across this interest-
g item in the household department:
f men would answer their wives
ndly and courteously when asked
r money, it is undoubtedly true that
e amount requested would not be
ilf as much as it would be if the
isband's reply was surly and antag-
listic."
Battersby read this item over twice
make sure he grasped its meaning,
id just then his wife entered the
10m, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer
"George," she said, "I want some
oney."
Battersby smiled affably.
"Yes, my clear," he  pleasantly re-
arked,    "and    how    much    do you
:int?"
Mrs. Battersby stared at him in
nazement.
"I said I wanted some money."
This time she spoke with much dis-
ictness.
'And I asked you how much you
anted," Battersby merrily reminded
r.
"Fifty dollars," she snapped.
Battersby almost fainted.    He had
lagined she was after $5 and that
genial tone would cut the amount
$2.50.
But he handed over the fifty with-
t further ado—ancl then tore thc
isleading item into infinitesimal
igments.
Hilda—But  what  is  the difference
tween a roof garden ancl any other
rden?   Harry—Well, on a roof gar-
the daisies bloom at night.

Not Just Then
A Washington negro thought he
was a prizefighter, so some of the local sporting men match him. He
couldn't fight, as was soon shown.
In the first round his antagonist
swung on the negro and knocked him
sprawling. The negro remained perfectly still.
"One, two, three," began thc referee, and then he noticed there was
but  fright.
"Ain't you goin' to fight no more?"
he shouted.   '
"Yassir," replied the negro. "I'm
going to fight some more, but not tonight."
Frank About It
A customer was waiting for an exchange at the silk counter in one of
the large department stores and the
clerk became chatty and told the following, which in his experience was
exceptional.
An uptown customer had had six
yards of an expensive silk sent C. O.
D. The next day the package was returned and on it was written:
"Returned. I was only teaching
my daughter how to shop."
A Robin's Cihirrup
A miner, accompanied by his mate,
who was rather deaf, was walking
along the railway line thc other clay
near Motherwell. A train approached
and on nearing the men it gave forth
an car-piercing shriek. A smile broke
over the  deaf man's  face.
"Man,"  he   said,  "that's  the   first
robin  I've heard this spring."
Conveniently Arranged
"You say you would not think of
touching a penny that did not belong
to you?" said thc magnate's questioning friend.
"Certainly not," answered Mr. Dustin Stax. "You see I've got thc business of thc country so systematized
that every penny I touch legally belongs to mc."
He Didn't Inject It
An elderly resident of Lynn, Mass.,
was talking about Mrs. Eddy, thc
head of the Christian Science Church.
"When she lived here in Lynn,"
said the old man, "she conducted a
temperance campaign for a time. She
did a lot of good, though now and
then she met with a rebuff.
"The story goes that a tramp once
asked her for help.
"'I'll help you, my friend,' said Mrs.
Eddy, 'but first you must answer mc
one question. Do you or do you
not drink beer?"
"The tramp, a hardened customer,
looked at her in amazement.
"'Why, lady,' he said, 'ye cert'n'y
don't think I squirt it into mc arm wid
a syringe.'"
Beat  Him  One Way
As Mark Twain ancl a friend were
chatting at thc summer home of thc
humorist, Quarry Farm, near Elmira,
N.Y., the conversation turned to the
wealth of John D. Rockefeller.
"Just think of it, Sam," said the
guest, "he has more dollars than
there arc hairs in that vigorous old
thatch of yours."
"That's nothing," replied Mr. Clemens, "I have more dollars than hc
has hairs in his head."

A MAN OF FATE
The Story of an Unpleasant Visit
(By C. Randolph-Lichfield)
It was just past eight when my
fountain-pen ran dry. A small matter, you may say, seeing that there
were half-a-dozen ordinary pens in
the tray on the desk at which I was
working, and an ink-pot stood within
easy reach of my hand; but it broke
the continuity of my thoughts, and
gave me pause to consider how dog-
tired I was mentally and sick of the
work in hand. And I dashed my pen
down on an impulse of nervous excitement, and, pushing back my chair,
rose with such an exclamation as I
was glad there was no one in the office to hear.
Quite as suddenly, of course, I recovered my senses, and then I naturally felt ashamed of my weakness and
irritability, and sought to excuse myself with the reflection that on four
consecutive evenings I had stuck to
my desk, long after my staff had left,
wrestling with the intricate details of
a subject so dry that all its points
seem to crumble up in my mind every
time I passed to survey it generally.
However, I had determined to complete the task that night or die of
neuasthenia in the attempt; and,
squaring my shoulders manfully, I sat
down again at my desk.
Just then, out of the silence which
seemed to hang like a fog in the
great pile of offices, on the fourth
floor of which my rooms were situated, a sharp, metallic note leapt
startlingly from behind me. It was
the telephone.
I fear I rapped out an oath before
I realised it could only be my wife
who had rung me up at the office at
such a late hour; and, jumping up, I
went to the instrument on the wall
behind my desk.

the bosom of your family, Barry
Acherson?" inquired Gwynne's voice,
with mock severity.
I explained the situation to her de-
precatingly, and told her that I hoped
to be home within an hour and a
half.
"Do try," she begged. "By the
way, there's been a man here to see
you—came about an hour or two ago.
He wanted to see you privately, and
declined to leave his name. I sent him
a message to the effect that if it were
a matter of business he'd better make
an appointment with you at the office,
as you never attended to business
matters at home.   Was that right?"
"Yes—quite right."
"He asked for your city address,
which I gave him."
"All right. I'll be home by nine-
thirty, if all's well."
"Au revoir, then."
"Au revoir, Gwynne."
As I laid the receiver on the rest,
and turned, the door opened, and a

man entered the room hurriedly. We
both paused for a moment, and stood
regarding each other.
He was a big, fleshy man of about
my own age, wearing a rather shabby serge suit and hard felt hat. There
was an odd look in his eyes and a set
expression about his mouth which
struck me queerly the moment I saw
him. He regarded me penetratingly,
with a look of dull wonder, and nervously brushed his left sleeve with
his right hand, as if to disguise his
embarrassment.

VOICES
When the Sun lights up the Sky
From its diadem on high,
And darkness rolls its canopy away.
When the whisper of the breeze
Makes a rustling in the trees
'Tis the whisper of the Day.
When the petals green unfurl
And the Daffodils uncurl,
And take their kiss of passion from the
Sun.
When the whispering in the grass
As spirits  softly pass
'Tis the whisper of the Noon.
When the sun sinks down to rest
In the golden,  glowing West.
The twilight fades, and stars begin to
peep,
When the whisper of the corn
Sounds forsaken and forlorn
'Tis the whisper of the Night-Tom Tit
