J Week is sorry to have to differ
Is venerable contemporary the Colli the subject of tho rights of pedes-
This is a favourite topic with
lirnal and whenever Imperial, Na-
fcr Naval affairs wane in interest
|re to bring up once more the sub-
"the rights of pedestrians." Its
lontribution to a discussion of this
J subject is occasioned by some rein the Toronto Globe. Tliat jour-
Ilares in unmistakable terms that
lis needed for the protection of the
(who haA'e to use the streets is the
lh education of drivers of vehicles
lorts as to the fact that pedestrians
lie right of way." The Colonist,
lnot so clear or emphatic, states
Is usual approximation to definite-
lat while fully endorsing what the
pays, "it sees no reason to change
ner vieAvs as to the duties of pedos-
Noav those "former views," as
reiterated in its issue of the 14th inst.,
are distinctly against the rights of pedestrians. The editor says that "no one,
not even a pedestrian, has a right to go
on his Avay oblivious (sic) that he may
come into contact with some other person
or some vehicle." Then he goes on to say
that in this city motorists are invariably
careful while pedestrians ancl especially
children take absolutely needless risks. He
then cities an illustration of a girl Avho
Avalked deliberately in the middle of the
road towards a motor, and by inference
constitutes a very decisive inroad into the
ranks of the Liberal Party, ancl as the
subject of Reciprocity Avas admittedly an
important factor in tlie election it is impossible to explain aAvay the significance
of the loss. It is true that Premier Murray still leads with tlie very substantial
majority of twenty-seven, but nothing can
explain aAvay the true lesson of the election Avhich is that on a test question of
paramount importance to the Dominion
the Government has been unable to hold
its oavii.    Such a result must be regarded
leaves liis readers to conclude that if thc
driver of the motor lind happened to be as
stubborn as the girl he could have ridden
her doAvn without criminal responsibility.
His final conclusion is that "although the
pedestrian always has the right of way on
crossings he is a foolish man avIio asserts
it at his. oavii peril." All of which means
that the, motorist is encouraged to insist
on his "pound of flesh," even if he carves
it from tho carcase of the unfortunate
The Liberal Go\rernment at Ottawa is
welcome to all the comfort it can extract
from the returns of the Nova Scotia Provincial elections held this week. In a
stronghold Avhich has been Liberal for
twenty-nine years, and which is thc special preserve of the Hon. AV. S. Fielding,
one of tho sponsors of the Reciprocity
Agreement, his party has lost* six seats,
three of them held by Ministers.    This
as the fore-runner of similar reverses in
olher parts of the Dominion; and possibly
the Liberal Press, which bas already returned thanks for ils escape from defeat,
has not carefully figured out that a far
less ratio of winning by the Conservatives in the other Provinces of tho
Dominion would more thnn suffice to place
them in power. Even if, as the Liberals
are never tired of declaring, the Prairie
Provinces should go solid for Reciprocity,
a piece of superb optimism, a proportionate gain in the other Provinces would
still give a net Conservative majority.
Under the circumstances the Conservatives have no reason to be disappointed
Avith the result of the first skirmish.
The Week has been asked to draw public attention to a condition of affairs existing in Victorin which is by no means
creditable to the Hon. William Templeman and the patronage committee of the
local Liberal Association. Probably few
people are aware that there is a rule, or a
laAv, that no bonded goods can be removed
from the Customs Avarehouse by a private
team. Only "bonded" teamsters may be
employed. The object of the rule may
lie good, although most people Avill fail to
see why a politically appointed teamster
should be better than any other, but let.
that pass. The point is that if the Hon.
AVilliam Templeman ancl his friends wish
to carry tlieir patronage policy into such
small matters they should at least ' bond"
a sufficient number of teamsters to ensure
the Avork of removing Customs goods being promptly ancl properly done. As a
matter of fact there are only four in the
city, and as these are also occupied on
general freighting it often happens that
they are not available for the purpose of
removing goods out of bond when they
are required. On this account one leading firm in the city has missed two important shipments of goods recently. It
really seems absurd that tho influence of
a Cabinet Minister and a patronage committee should have to be invoked in a
matter of this kind, but as the present
arrangement seriously handicaps business
possibly this reminder Avill lead to the
creation of a feAV more "bonded"
The Press is making a great fuss
these clays about the action of the Provincial Government in rescinding that portion
of its Order in Council which made an
increase in the price of Crown lands retroactive. The reason for this miAVonted activity is that the Times has unearthed the
prospectus of the Frnser Land Company,
which benefited by the change, and is endeavouring, in his absence, to associate
the Hon. AV. J. Bowser with the transaction in an unfavourable manner because
his legal firm acted as solicitors for the
Company. On this aspect of the question
The Week bas nothing to say at present
because it declines to accept the Times'
version which is the only one in evidence.
It will, however, venture to remind its
readers that when the first Order in Council was passed in April last the Times declaimed loudly against the retroactive features of the Order in Council, and declared that they wero unfair, and would
work a hardship upon men avIio had ''bona
tide" staked land in accordance with the
Provincial statutes, and bad otherwise
complied with the requirements of the
law. It is difficult to reconcile these two
views, and as usual the attitude of the
Times "then" ancl "now" furnishes an interesting study in contrasts.
Most of thc men who try to make
trouble in A'ictoria and A^ancouver are
aggressive aliens who, failing to find a
sufficient outlet for their intellectual
vigour south of the Line periodically patronize the principal cities of British Columbia. The AA'eek has many times taken
occasion to remark that most of these,
Avould-be instructors could be well spared,
especially as they invariably come with a
patronizing air, ancl regardless of all the
obligations imposed by hospitality give
vent to their "spread-eagle" notions with
as much freedom and as little restraint
as if they Avere in their oavii country.
Tlio Rev. Dr. Matthews of Seattle is advertised to speak in Victoria during Coronation Aveek, ancl the Times has rendered
a public service in calling attention to the
fact that he recently stated from a public
platform in Vancouver that he Avould like

"Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!"!
Please don't "rub it in" any more.
Yes, I know now tbat it's Tennyson's |
"In Memoriam" and that that unfor-
tunate quotation is found in the |
fourth verse of the twenty-seventh
canto. 1 realise that 1 made an egregious "howler" and that it was a disgraceful thing for anyone to do who
tries to earn an honest penny by
"scribbling." I even deserve the scorn
of any Canadian child who has been
taught English Literature in our public schools. You have doubtless seen
me walking the streets with my face
suffused with blushes and have wondered how I could possibly mix up
Tennyson with the Elizabethan poets.
However, I am still alive and kicking
and feel that I have deserved well of
the Dominion Government as the sale
of postage stamps must have gone
up in B. C. during the past week.
At the same time I should like to
thank the many, very many readers
who hastened to the relief of tbe uneducated Lounger and steered him
along the path in which he should
have gone. I think that I had better
eschew poetry a little till this storm
be overpast. I have an idea that the
editor is of much the same opinion
* *   *
I am told that tliere is a veritable
plague of soot in that part of the city
which lies round and about the Fountain. Apparently the smoke from the
lumber-mills is responsible for this
nuisance. In one case a cup was
left on an open window-sill for some
hours, after whicii period the bottom was found to be thickly covered
with soot. Of course there is a cure
for this. A great deal can be done
by scientific stoking and if tbat docs
not suffice the residents are entitled
to demand that a smoke consuming
device be affixed to the furnaces in
question. It certainly seems a cruel
injustice that some parts of the town
should bc afflicted with the ills which
abound in a city of manufacturing
fame, whereas Victoria is known
throughout the world as a city of residences with a few manufactures
thrown in.
* *   *
I wish that those men who do not
smoke would realise that the back
platform on the street cars is the only
place on them where a smoker is allowed to indulge in his pet vice. It
always strikes me as being the epitome of selfishness for a man to take
up room on this platform when he
has no desire to smoke thereby deprive others who want to enjoy
whiff before lunch or dinner of the
privilege. Thc offenders in this particular instance are of all ages though
of but one sex. I haven't the slightest
doubt but that if it was pointed out
to them that they were playing the
same game as the dog in the manger
of historic fame they would gladly
give place, but however much a man
may want to smoke, he not unnaturally hesitates to ask for the space, but
goes inside and instead of letting thc
smoke from his pipe curl upwards to
the ethereal blue allows his anger to
smoulder deep down in his breast.

T venture to suggest that the programme of the selections played by
thc band on Sunday afternoons in the
parks might be revised with a view
to including some items of what is
called "Sacred" music. I am aware
that the term is relative and that all
music may lay claim to this title; that
thc difference between "Sacred" and
"Secular" is largely one of time and
accent and that to most people a
musical waltz is more inspiring than
a cheap hymn tune. I know that
"Abide With Me" can be rendered
as a charming waltz and that "A Few
More Years Shall Roll" can be turned
into a fascinating polka. But this is
not the point. I believe that there
arc thousands of men and women like
myself who through no religious sentiment love to hear "Sacred" music
and who tire of the Merry Widow
waltz and the Movements of Madame
Sherry. If the band concert programme were altered so that a few
selections from Oratorios and even
some of the grand old hymn tunes
could be included not only would a
graceful concession be made to the
First Day of the week but a tribute
would also be paid to those who appreciate good music and think that
some of the finest is to be found in
the folios inscribed "Sacred."
Oriental Alley has been a source of
danger during this past week. A drain
is being dug on the east side and for
a short space a post and rail fence
was erected as a safeguard. So far
as this went all was well and good,
but unfortunately the fence was not
continued to keep pace with the ditch
and consequently at the time of writing tliere is a yawning chasm gaping
at the side of a very narrow path
which very nearly saved the official
grave-digger a job on Tuesday night.
Anyone seeing a guard-rail along a
sidewalk is entitled to believe in the
dark that when the rail stops the
danger also ceases to exist; in this
case the natural conclusion was wrong
and the little trap nearly proved fatal
to an acquaintance of mine.
* *   *
Meeting a friend with a scratched
and torn countenance on Monday last
1 gently enquired as to the welfare
of the household cat; as he was an
unmarried man 1 did not think it
necessary to look further afield to
rind the "foils et origo mali." 1 was
wrong, however, as he immediately
proved to me by launching forth into
a tirade against the powers that be
on account of the over-hanging and
uncut bushes and shrubs bordering on
Simcoe Street in the near neighbourhood of Beacon Hill Park. It appears that he and a companion were
walking home in the dark on Sunday
night (I would have you note that
it was Sunday night when the saloons are closed) when they ran into
thorny obstructions on the road in
question. His friend ruined a hat and
my friend temporarily ruined his face.
Of course there was no very serious
damage done, but think of what might
have been. Hc might have lost an
eye; being an Englishman he ran no
risk of sharing the fate of Absalom,
but there arc others who might not
have been so lucky. When I tried to
soothe his ruffled feelings by arguing
that in all probability the bushes
were allowed to grow wild because of
their intrinsic beauty be broke forth
i into revilings, so I suppose there is
something in what he says and recommend that some attention be paid
j to the street in question.
* *   *
I   made a  special  point last  week
, with regard to the providing of drink-
1 ing   troughs   for   dogs   outside  the
I stores.   Perhaps it is too soon to look
j for results as yet, though I hope that
they may appear very soon.   I merely wish to say that the ladies of the
city can  do a great deal in this respect.    In   England  there  are  many
people who refuse to do business with
a store unless a  trough is provided
outside for the use of dogs.   Now we
all   know  that  though  the  men   are
supposed to make the money the ladies have the spending* of it and go
whercso'er they list with tlieir purses
or their credit.    Is a nod as good as
a wink to a blind horse in this case?
"You've got a nice sort of a face
to come and eat ice-cream soda with."
If you heard the above remark being hurled across a room where such
things are sold to the public you
would not unnaturally think that you
had been transplanted to the slums
of some big city where the local
"Arry" was exchanging genial chaff
with his local "Arriet." When I overheard this polite phraseologly the
other day I was sitting in a first-
class ice-cream emporium and on
looking up I discovered the owner
of the voice to be a well-dressed
young fellow whilst the subject of
his badinage was an equally well-
dressed young girl. I did not take
either of them to be members of the
Upper Four Hundred, but neither
should I have ventured to class them
with "Arry" and his donah. However, the girl seemed to think it a
great joke and the young fellow evidently thought that he had proved
himself to be a wit of the highest
order so no harm was done, but the
incident was, and still is, somewhat
perplexing to the

A Dutiful Citize
There's a man in our midst who prides himself greatly
upon the exactness with which he regulates all his duties,
both in business and in social life. One evening recently
he went to the Empress to dine with a business acquaintance.
"Don't wait up for me," he said to his better half, "I may
be rather late but business is business you know, and it can't
be helped."
The next morning the man of method was far from
looking or feeling well. At breakfast he sat toying listlessly with his dry toast and butter while his wife sat stonily
silent behind the coffee-pot.
The clock in the room was equally silent.
"Ellen, my dear, there must be something wrong with
that clock.    I'm sure I wound it up last night."
"No!"  answered  his  wife,  "You  turned  on  the graphophone and it played 'Take Me Out for a Joy Ride,' you stuck |
your latch-key into the hall clock  and screwed your corkscrew into the keyhole of the hall door."
MORAL:   Don't   mix  drinks   or  you  mix  up  yourself.
Whether at the  "Empress"  or anywhere  else, it's  a  good I
thing to attach  yourself to G.  H.  Mumm &  Co.'s  "Extra!
Dry."   The bottle with the rose-coloured capsule has no bad J
after effects.

Several times his declamation degenerated into ranting, and only once
did he give a glimpse of subtle artistry—when he was told of the death
of Juliet. All this is a criticism on
his acting in Romeo, which leaves it
quite open to his admirers to claim
that hc can do better in more suitable
parts, a conclusion which I am willing to concede.
Miss Marlowe played Juliet much
better than Mr. Sothern played Romeo. At the commencement she
simulated juvenility with fair success,
but as the play progressed she glided
naturally into an atmosphere of maturity and almost wantonness which
ill accorded with the character of
Juliet and which if truth must be
told, violated every beautiful tradition of the part. Her attitude on the
balcony was a revelation in more
senses than one.
Romeo died they rose "en masse" and
left the house, although the final
scene, in which the Montagues and
the Capulets arc reconciled, was in
course of preparation. They had had
enough and although it was good of
its kind, it was not the kind promised
or expected.

Comedy Triumph "Smith,"
Friday, June 23
I have seen many Juliets, but Miss
Marlowe is the lirst to give so bold
and broad a reading, and to emphasize the "lure" to such an extent as
to suggest Cresida rather than Juliet.
Miss Marlowe has much in her favour; she is a beautiful woman with a
fine stage presence and a thorough
knowledge of stage craft. She could
play a repertoire acceptably, and in
one or two parts might probably
equal any of her rivals, but she cannot play Juliet, and a just criticism
is that she portrays but does not interpret.
The support was fairly good,
though by no means what one had a
right to expect from the laudatory
advance notices. Tn fact, with the
exception of thc stars and Mr. Frederick Lewis, who played Mercutio.
no one earned a medal, and the misguided individual who spoke the
many exquisite lines of Friar Lawrence as if he were a ranting parson
spoilt every scene in which he appeared.
The play was well mounted and

us, and his mate is worthy of him. Al
White's Dancing Bugs afford a fine
exhibition of clog dancing, the four
of them being on the boards at once,
providing quite a unique feature.
"Jackson's Honeymoon" is too absurd for words, but it certainly keeps
the house in a roar of laughter, which
is what it is meant to do. Somers &
Storke are to be congratulated on
their performance, both as actors and
xylophonists. Carron & Herbert are
amusing and clever acrobats, some
of their hand-turns being exceptionally well done.

The Week
A   Provincial  Newspaper  and   Review,
published every Saturday by
Published   at   1208  Government   St.,
Victoria, B.C.,  Canada
.. During the eight years of the publication of The Week no special effort
has been made to increase the circulation; no circulation Manager or
Agent has been employed, and although there has been a very substantial increase in the number of
subscribers this has been entirely due
to the voluntary efforts of our readers
and their friends. During the present year, in accord with the rapid
development of business in Victoria
and on Vancouver Island, The Week
has been considerably enlarged and as
a result has been approached by large
advertising firms with whom it had
not previously done business. In
order to meet the requirements of
such firms, and to take advantage of
their offers it is necessary that the
circulation should be substantially in*
creased. The only means of effect
ing such an increase promptly is by
adopting one of the up-to-date
methods now employed by the lead
ing papers of Canada, and of these
various methods undoubtedly a
once the most popular and the most
effective. At first sight no doubt
many friends of The Week will be
inclined to criticise the project, but
when they realise that it will be the
means of doubling the subscribers and
strengthening the paper financially
and otherwise, they will no doubt
turn in and help the management to
achieve success. The contest is outlined on the back page of this issue
and it is only necessary to add that
its whole conduct will be carefully
supervised, and that a complete audit
of the accounts will be made and certified by a chartered accountant. This
is the first time since its inception that
The Week has made any appeal to
the public, it has not even resorted to
the usual methods of increasing its
circulation. The Week therefore looks
with confidence for a favourable reception of the Circulation Contest,
and guarantees that its readers be repaid in increased efficiency for any
effort they may be willing to put
forth on its behalf.
This article lias no reference to an
exciting episode in the political history of Victoria, but is thc innocent
title of one of the most interesting
books which I have read for many
a day. Moreover, thc book is by a
new author and therefore all thc more
welcome because it holds out promise
of better things to come. It possesses most of the weaknesses of
'prentice Avork, being ill-balanced,
crude and diffuse in parts, but it possesses thc saving grace of an interesting plot and several interesting
characters. It must not be regarded
as a fatal objection that the plot is
too improbable to bc possible, but
this difficulty is overcome by the
skill with Avhich the author invests
the whole story with an air of romance which makes all things
For a Bishop of the Anglican
Church to strangle his brothcr-in-laAv
because that vagabond persists in
persecuting his legally wedded spouse,
and then to resume his clerical functions as if nothing had happened,
allowing another to be convicted of
the crime, is making large drafts on
the bank of credence, and far outvies the melodramatic sensationalism
of "Dean Maitland's Silence." Thc
"Dean" at least lived ever afterwards
in an atmosphere of remorse, and
bore   a   clouded   face.    Not   so  the
Bishop. HoAvever, that is another
story, Avhich if my readers Avant to
become acquainted with they must
learn from the pages of the book.
I Avant to turn to what is by far
the most entertaining feature of an
entertaining novel. The folloAving
rather extensive extracts require no
apology. They summarise the philosophy of "Madame," who Avas a big-
coarse bum-boat woman, who had
studied human nature in pretty nearly every phase without being soured,
and Avithout losing one drop of "the
milk of human kindness." I want
"Madame" to speak for the book, and
she will do it far better herself than
I can.
* *   *
Cecile would wonder what it must
feel like to be as these coloured people Avere. "Much the same as you
and me, my dear. It's the sun paints
the skin, but God makes the inside,"
"the Madame" Avould reply, and it
was "the inside" of things that Cecile sought. Indeed, she asked so
many puzzling questions that "the
Madame" found occasion to rebuke
her "cleverness." To Madame cleverness Avas not a desirable attribute
of women. "Most Avomen Avant to
marry, and it don't do to be too
clever Avhen you're out after a 'usband," she remarked, "leastAvays not
to show it. Men don't like clever
Avomen my dear. They like to tell a
woman two and two makes four, and
a real clever woman pretends she's
s'prised at it. It takes more cleverness than a Avoman ought to let on,
just to make a man feel comfortable
with her. Men are poor creatures in
a lump, but it don't do to let them
know it till you're married. Why,
there's Sherry, to see 'im trying to
think is like looking at a 'en on a
crockery egg. He just sits and sits
and don't 'atch nothing. What I do
like in a man is chippiness. Chippi-
ness is a real good thing in a 'ouse.
That's what I like in Sherry. He's
ahvays so lively about nothing. When
God made 'im it must 'ave been a
fine day. You mark my words, Cecile, don't marry a man for 'is cleverness, for none of them are real clever.
First see if 'e's chippy and take 'im if
'c is. My folk were dead against my
marrying Dubois. They said 'e was
a strange taste for a Avidow, but why
a Avidow shouldn't 'ave a bit of liveliness for 'er second  T don't know."

"This Bccshop, he is Edrique's—
Mr. Pcrivale's father, is it not thus?
He is a great man, eh?"
"Oh, yes! a tiptopper."
"What is this 'teep-topper?'"
"Tres distingue," interposed Dubois.
"My dear, you call him 'My Lord,'
and 'e Avears a surplus with ruchings
all round the wrists, and looks
'eavenly Avhen 'e's got them on."
"He is a ver' good man—ver'
"Oh dear me yes, very good; why,
my child, that's what 'e's paid for.
If 'e wasn't good 'e'd 'ave 'is surplus took off in no time. Yes, the
Bishop's a good man all right, but
somehow 'e don't seem quite 'appy.
'Appy is as 'appy does, and 'e ought
to be 'appy but 'e don't look it. There
are some folks like that. Like taking goodness in pickles, though for
myself, Cecile, I like it in jam.
Then 'is voice is mclongollic—like
no other voice I know of—a proper
voice, I suppose. I don't like it
though. Noav there's the Methodies;
they talk to God in thc voice God
gave them and lots of it, but the Brit-
op. 'e talks to God in a special sort
of voice. 'E's bad, but some of the
curies is Avorse. They're more particular, too, than the Bishop about
saying prayers in their clothes. Once
there Avas a curie up 'ere for 'is
'ealth, and a gohanna eat up 'is surplus off the clothes line, and 'e couldn't say 'is prayers nohow. But I like
the Bishop; 'e ain't ahvays chucking
stones at the sinners like them curies.
The younger they arc, my clear, the
more they chuck stones. Not that
I'm standing up for the sinners, as
Sherry knoAvs full well; but I like
fair play, and they don't get it from
the curies."
* *   *
"The Madame," as they sat on the
broad verandah thc following morning, laid her Avork in the ample se
curity of her lap, and gazed through
her spectacles thoughtfully.
"So it 'as come off, eh?"
Cecile looked puzzled. "This come-
off', Avhat is he?"
"His name is Edric." Cecile
d; but the blush only accentuated the SAveet content that had so
filled her face, from the light of a
deep set happiness, as to be read
aloud by "the Madame.'
She rose, then kneeling by the side
of the older woman nestled her face
upon her breast. Thus Avhile the
mother slowly stroked her hair, she
remained awhile in the joy of sympathy.
"My little girl," said "the Madame"
tenderly, "when I Avas your age it
seemed to me that some day I Avould
feel just like that. A sort of 'eavenly sickness—when you don't feel
your feet and you Avan't to fly. But—"
with a deep sigh that gave a prolonged heave to Cecilc's resting-place,
'my lirst 'usband Avasn't built on
them lines. There's that about a
young girl's first love she expects
and mostly don't get. Jim Stub-<
bings sat like a wax figure or a
stuffed image looking as though he'd
give a mint of money to 'ave a
smoke. 'James,' I sa'd, 'this is love—
what you read of;' and that ox of a
man just wriggled and said, 'Ain't I
asked you? That's all right, Mary
Ann. You're good enough for me
all right; I've 'ad my eye on you for
two years; I ain't one for making no
mistakes about a wife.   You can milk
much use for them in cane. So it
didn't fret 'im much—but I've been
wanting a little girl ever since I can
remember. But then, as the Bishop
says, the ways of ProA'idence are
mostly mysterious. But law bless
us, you don't understand 'arf of it,
and me clucking like a broody 'en
when maybe you want to tell the old
Madame all about it," and she pressed
the girl's head closer to her.
*   *   *
"It is the people's, the Beeshop's
peoples—Avhat they Avould say?"
"Well, I knoAV what the curies
Avould say, anyhoAv!" remarked the
Madame with grim humour. "But law
bless you, child, nobody minds
curies.   They're born that way."
"Well, cats are clean enough if
rubbing their faces means anything.

kind of natural 'appiness. There are
no flies on Priscilla either, for she's
ahvays catching them with saucers of
fly-papers and little cages of coloured
paper. Fleas too! She makes them

for 'cr to go 'ome with them curls

"It ces not good to be too much
of anything, eh?" remarked Cecile.
"It's like being Avail-eyed in a
'orse; 'e sees all on one side and
nothing on the other. Married life,"
coi inued "the Madame," as she
greased some party-pans for tartlets,

lends had stood for Recipro

was by abandoning that policy that
you gained and held power. Thus
you, became at once an Imperialist
and a Nationalist, for it is the peculiar glory of our Empire that it
fosters the growth of nations under
its many-folded flag. You saw Canada becoming symmetrical and
strong, with its manufactures balancing its agriculture and its tariff enabling it to resisit the suck and pull
of its great neighbour. Your reward
for so intelligently realising the policy of others was to be called an
Imperial statesman and to rest on the
support of the British Canadians. At
the same time you contrived to retain the support of the provincialists
of Quebec by resisting Canadian sentiment in favour of helping the Imperial Navy. Thus successfully and
for many years you have played the
part of Mr. Facing-Both-Ways.
The Star (and the Stripe).—But,
as you said iri your beautiful speech
on Wednesday night, "a star arose in
the West," a new and solid population of American farmers on Canadian soil. Kruger would have refused them a vote and restricted their
numbers. Your finer democratic sense
saw in them a new factor of power.
Your naval policy had made you unpopular in thc East; you would
change horses and, with the West and
Quebec, you would be able to do without the Loyalist vote. Thus you
threw over the Imperialists both in
Canada and throughout the Empire
and returned to Reciprocity, the policy of your youth. It was a lightning
change, and although it dazzled many
it shocked and startled others. For
the perspicuous recognised that not
only was our hope of Imperial unity
threatened, not only was any fiscal
system for the Empire, or any preferential treaty between Canada and
I the Mother Country, made difficult
or impossible, but thc nationality and
unity of Canada herself were menaced by the change. The Canadian
West would bc cut off from the Canadian East and bound tightly to an
American interest. Canadian manufactures would be deprived of their
raw material for the benefit of their
American rivals, who would also be
nearer the Canadian market. Canada
would thus be divided into two and
her industrial growth stunted. The
mutual interplay, of agriculture and
manufacture necessary to the symmetrical growth of a nation would be
checked. The short-sighted man says,
"Let us sell our wheat and our timber." The long-sighted man replies,
"\'o, let us sell our flour, our biscuits, our furniture, our paper. Let us
not sell our raw material, but the
manufactured article. Thus only shall
we reap the full profits of our products and establish ourselves on the
community of interests that makes a
The Spider and the Fly.—You say,
"It is restricted Reciprocity and we
will go no further." But you remember the fable: The spider invited the
fly to step into his parlour. The fly
replied, "I will only put in one foot:
the rest of mc will remain outside."
The spider was satisfied. Why? Because he knew the foot would stick.
Thus we speak to you more in sorrow than in anger. If you arc sapping Imperial interests you are also
undermining Canadian nationality.
For our part, it wcre foolish to throw
stones. We have had our chance and
lost it. Only some of us wdio had
thought we were confreres and now
find ourselves mistaken, think that
real faith would have endured longer,
that true love would have suffered
more. That, perhaps, is sentiment,
and sentiment, nowadays, is only allowed to Free Traders. Let me end
on a practical note. Where is the
sense in supporting the "All-Red
Route," for whicii it is said you are
now going to fight, if at thc same
time you are diverting trade north
and south? Surely these things hang
together.    If we are to have an Im

Victoria, B.C., June 5, 1911.
Dear Editor,—I derive very much
satisfaction from reading your interesting paper every week, and feel
sure if it was not for your fearlessness in editing what takes place in
this city, a great many needed reforms would be left undone, in fact,
perhaps never noticed.
Now, in reference to the sweepstakes which are drawn here four or
five times a year, I think it is a very
good thing indeed if it is run as it
should be, as it gives us all a chance
to amass a nice little fortune at one
grand swoop, as after all, one dollar,
the price of a ticket, can well be
spared by most people, as you know
many one dollar's arc fritted away in
return for less, than by taking a ticket
in the sweepstake, but, as you set
forth in your editorial, tliere are many
opportunities for easy fraud, and the
authorities should really take a hand
in the proceedings. Of course, as long-
as this is carried on fairly, everyone
has the same chance of winning, .bur
should there be any trickery, then
people, month after month, and perhaps year after year, are simply
throwing away money by purchasing
these tickets. When thc prize was
only a small one, there was not very
much temptation, but now that it has
assumed such large proportions, it
might be a source of acute temptation. 1 think the firms that hold
these drawings here, reserve quite a
large share for themselves by taking
10 per cent, of tlie money.
I think when the drawings take
place, that an official in authority, and
at the same time one who is "sans
peur et sans reproche," should take
charge of this affair, so that the public in general would be absolutely
certain of getting fair play. I do not
think thc authorities should be so
apathetic in an affair of this sort, as
there is such a large amount at stake;
it is not as if it was only an insignificant sum. If the money so acquired
was devoted to some good cause, we
would not complain, but if it is only
to enrich some unscrupulous individuals at the expense of trusting thousands of subscribers, it is high time
that something should be done. 1
think thc Chief of Police, or some
other entirely trustworthy official
should conduct these drawings and
not leave it to the integrity of any
"Tom, Dick or Harry."
Again, if the winner does not call
for the prize, then, I think, it should
be given to some relative or charitable institution, and not kept by the
person or firm running the sweepstake, or else divided among the small
winners, as those who obtain the
first, second and third prizes certainly have sufficient, without being heaped with more treasure. I believe
some of the firms engaged in this
affair state that any prizes not called
for will be given to the bolder of
the highest prize; this seems like a
case of heaping coals of fire on the
lucky person's head, but 1 suppose
it is tlle way of the world.
Now, Mr. Editor, do keep up the
good work, and when the time approaches for a drawing in July, September and October, keep hammering
away, throw the light of publicity on
this matter, and do not let those in
charge of these drawings have things
all their own way.
Very truly yours,
Victoria, June 8th, 1911.
The Editor of The Week:
Sir,—Will you kindly, through the
medium of your valuable paper, give
publicity to the following communication recently received in this Department, with regard to the one-thous-
and-dollar Stilwell trophy to be given
for the best exhibit of potatoes at
the American Land and Irrigation Exposition, to beheld at Madison Square
Gardens, New York, November 3rd,
to 12th, 1911, viz.:
"At the American Land and Irrigation Exposition to be held at Madison Square Gardens, New York, November 3rd to 12th, 1911, there is a
onc-thousand-dollar trophy offered for
the best exhibit of late potatoes. The
exhibit does not necessarily need to
belong to one individual, but may bc
exhibited by a Department of Agriculture, Farmers' Organization, or by ;:
District. The main point is the the
one thousand-dollar Stilwell trophy is
to be given for the best exhibit of
potatoes represented by marketable
quality, smooth appearance, Hush eyes
and uniformity of size. The yield of
each variety per acre, which acre
must be officially surveyed, must be
sworn to by the grower, and attested
by two or more reputable witnesses.
It will readily appear to you, that
the winning of a trophy of this character will advertise your Province at
this great exhibition extensively. We
are confident that splendid potatoes
can be grown in Western Canada, and
are very anxious that one, or all of
the four Western Provinces shall take
this matter up in a systematic and
careful manner, supplying a creditable exhibit so that, if possible, you
may win the handsome trophy referred to.
Will it not be possible for your
Department to take up this matter?
We would like to have a reply from
you stating what you would be prepared to do in the way of gathering
this  exhibit."
Yours   very  truly,
**''      Deputy   Minister.
The Week,
Victoria, B.C.
Dear Sir,—I read for the first time
a copy of your paper, issue of June
3rd, and feel that you should be congratulated on the matter of your
Editorial page; the able manner in
which you handle the most important
subjects touched upon, especially the
Reciprocity matter. There is a view
of United Empire Loyalty running
through your columns which should
appeal to every British subject and
not less to Canadians than the others.
Yours truly,

Cases Showing How the Present Immigration Laws Work Unnecessary Hardships on His Majesty's
Loyal Subjects, the Sikhs of India.
Mr. and Mrs. Bhai Bhag Singh, Mr.
and Mrs. Sundar Singh, Mr. and Mrs.
Balwant Singh, and Mrs. Raja Singh
are the persons waiting in Calcutta,
India, for the "last two months and
who want to cross over to Canada.
Mr. Bhai ;Bhag Singh was secretary
of the Gurn Nanak Mining & Trust
Co., Ltd., of Vancouver. He owns
considerable landed property in and
around Vancouver. He has been in
Canada for five years and is generally
respected by the Hindus as well as
Canadians and last year he went to
India to bring his family. He has
served as a trooper in the Indian cavalry and wearing the King's uniform
and before coming to the Dominion
he served in China, at Shanghai ancl
Messrs. Sundar and Balwant Singh
were the priests at the Sikh Temple,
Vancouver, B.C. They own considerable property in this country. Mr.
Sundar Singh has served on the
Shanghai    Police    and    Mr. Balwant
Singh was a soldier in the 25th Punjab Infantry. Anyone who knows the
Sikhs ever so little will think it a
bad policy politically to delay any
further the admission of these men
and their families.
Mr. Raja Singh, whose wife cannot come here, is a real estate agent,
being manager of the East India Development and Cotractlng Co., having
offices on Hastings street east and
South Vancouver. Mr. Raja Singh
served with the Gwalior troops and
was present on the Hospital ship
supplied by his highness the Maharaja of Gwalior for the relief of legations at Peking, China. He owns
quite a lot of landed property in Vancouver, and has been in this country
for the last three years.
These people cannot purchase
steamship tickets for the immigration
law requires them to come direct and
by continuous journey from India to
Canada, but they have to tranship at
Hong Kong. The journey is continuous and direct in the sense that
it is not broken on the way and is
straight from India to here, but the
steamship agents construe it to mean
by steamers running direct from
India to here. It is the sincere
wish of all the loyal Sikhs resident
in B. C. that this vague and unstates-
manlike interpretation of the law may
be removed and thus unnecessary
hardship which has already ben carried to breaking may be done away
with and these Sikhs who have already been domiciled here be allowed
to enter this country as a matter of
common British justice and fair play.

You'll Appreciate the Goodness of These Summer Chairs
Here is your ideal Summer Furniture. There is a splendid showing of Rattan and Sea Grass and Fibre Chairs on our Fourth Floor. We import
these direct from the largest niakers in this style of furniture. We want you to inspect these so that you will notice the superior workmanship on
these chairs and the "smartness" of design. They are perfect in every way. Also note that these chairs are shellacked, which not only gives a more
attractive appearance, but also gives these about double the lite of others. Shellac preserves the reed and linen fibre. Buying from this large firm just
mentioned above and doing business with them on a very large scale, enables us to quote very interesting prices. As a Summer chair there is nothing
to equal them, and as a winter chair also they are very attractive and comfortable.   There is certainly nothing nicer for the porch or lawn.
Come in at your very earliest convenience and see these chairs. You will agree with us that now is the time to secure one. These hot days
suggest them to us, and that is just why we are telling you about them.    You will never get better styles or a greater variety.   These are on our
Fourth Floor, and there's no better time than today.

Big Shareholder Visits Le Roi Two
Col. H. G. Burrows, one of the largest shareholders of the
Le Roi No. 2 company, Avas in Rossland recently, ancl made an
inspection of the mine. Col. Burrows expressed himself as being
very pleased with what he saw of the mine and feels that thc company has noAV passed the stage when it might have been regarded
as a pure speculation, and that it is now one of the most promising speculative investments that he knows of. "For the past three
years," said Col. Burrows, in an interview with a Daily Xews
representative, "the stockholders have received dividends of 20
per cent, per annum and from the manner in which the present
scheme of development is showing up I think that there is every
reason to hope that we shall...receive equally satisfactory returns
for many years to come; There, is plenty of absolutely virgin
ground belonging to the company which will later be developed
in addition to the several veins which are now under exploitation
with such good results." Discussing the Le Roi mine Col. Burrows said: "The solution of the difficulty appears to me to be
the purchase of the property by the Le Roi No. 2 company. I
believe that there is still a vast store of ore which can be com-

mercially mined in the Le Roi and that if the property were taken
hold of by the Le Roi No. 2 company good returns could be made
to shareholders. The question, however, really resolves itself into
that of the price the Le Roi company would ask for the mine."
Col. Burrows also went to Silverton to inspect the Van Roi mine,
in which, as a shareholder of the Le Roi Two, he is heavily interested. "I am very pleased to hear such good reports of the Van
Roi," he said: "The directors of the Le Roi No. 2 have always
had a great deal of faith in the Silverton property and really
acquired it some years ago when it was believed that the Rossland property was practically worked out. Of course the discovery
of new veins which now give no indication of working out on
the Le Roi No. 2 has taken away the necessity of having the Van
Roi to fall back on for dividends but it is naturally very pleasant
for me, as a stockholder, to feel that we own such an excellent
mine as the A^an Roi in addition to our star dividend producer."
Rich Discovery on Ymir Belle
Two feet of good ore has recently been struck on the Ymir
Belle group, of the Ymir camp, according to Archie McDougall,
one of the owners of the property. The Ymir Belle is near the
Wilcox mine and is owned by Archie McDougall, John Dewar and
Harry Jackson, and work has been in progress under the last
named. Earlier development consisted of an incline shaft which
exposed ore in a ledge that is generally regarded as an extension
of the Fourth of July vein of the Wilcox property. Some time
ago Mr. Jackson found some rich float far down the mountainside,
brought to light by a slide, and-with a man or two located the
ledge, and followed it into the hill. At a comparatively short
distance and at a point 700 feet down the hill from the incline
shaft they opened up two feet of fine looking ore, which pans well.
Mr. Jackson wrote to Mr. McDougall, stating their success in
finding the ledge, and W. B. Mclsaac, the secretary of the union,
also confirmed the discovery. Thereupon Mr. McDougall himself
went out to Ymir, and is now back in the city with some rich
samples. There is small doubt that this is the same ledge opened
up above. The owners are making arrangements to follow the
ore right in, until the size and character of the ore shoot is
definitely determined.
To Develop Searchlight
W. B. Poole, manager of the Nugget mine, who is now in the
city, stated last night that he has just placed a force of men at
work on the Searchlight group, in which he is interested and which
adjoins the Nugget group of the Sheep creek gold camp, but on
the Sheep creek side of Dominion mountain, the side opposite
from the Nugget workings. Five or six men commenced work on
Saturday on the property. The Searchlight is popularly regarded
in the camp with great favour, as it is supposed to have a con-
tiuation of the Nugget veins. At present two good veins are
known. The property will be given a very thorough prospecting
this summer. H. Mansel Cooke, the well known mining engineer,
who is in charge of the Pingree property on Eagle creek, states
that he is in the market for good mining propositions on behalf
of the Terra Nova Syndicate, a syndicate of British capital that
makes a business of developing mining properties. If properties
of promise at reasonable prices, are brought to his notice Mr.
Cooke states he will be ready to investigate them and report on
them to the Terra Nova Syndicate.
[__ Mother Lode Mine
In the Mother Lode mine, in the Sheep Creek camp, there has
been developed and made available for mining, ore worth $1,200,000,
in less than two years, above the 450 ft. level. In addition $50,000
worth was shipped, taken largely from development faces. This
property is now being equipped with an up-to-date reduction plant,
ancl will within another year be paying large dividends.
Kootenay Belle
The Kootenay Belle mine, Sheep Creek camp, has produced
over $100,000 in gold from shipments during preliminary development. Recently a crosscut tunnel has intersected one of the veins
at a considerable depth, and it is reported that very high grade ore
was encountered.
J. E. Griffiths, provincial works engineer, whose department is
expending this year over $5,500,000 throughout the province, states
that his department will call for tenders for the construction of a
permanent bridge across the Columbia river at Trail. The estimated cost is $150,000. Authority to install a fixed centre span
has been given by the federal government. However, to meet
future possibilities in the event of the development of river traffic,
the piers will be of sufficient strength to support steel towers
should it be decided later to replace the fixed with a moveable
The department will also call for tenders for a new swing
bridge across the Columbia river 42 miles south of Golden to
provide needed facilities for settlers now pouring into Windermere
district, it being estimated to cost $25,000.

Grand Trunk Pacific Investors
The construction of the new transcontinental railway—the Grand
Trunk Pacific—is to-dny opening up new towns that in the very near
future will be large and important cities. Just as the advent of the
pioneer transcontinental line—The Canadian Pacific—opened and built up
divisional points such as Brandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc., so
will the new line of the Grand Trunk make large divisional points of the
towns we now offer for sale.
We have secured the agency from the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC
RAILWAY CO. for the towns mentioned below and the shrewd investors
who can recognize the many advantages for Investment in these towns at
the prices of to-day, will share in the large profits that will accrue as a
result of their rapid development. No other investment is so safe and
profitable, and if you want to get your portion of the wealth Western
Canada's development is creating, take advantage of this opportunity now
before it is too late.
Prices of lots in all of these divisional points are $75, $100, $150, $200,
$250 and $300 on easy monthly payments, no interest and no taxes till
1912, with a 5 per cent discount for cash.
MELVILLE: The lirst Saskatchewan divisional point on the G. T. P.
and the largest new town on the line between Winnipeg and Edmonton.
Located In a rich agricultural district, an important railroad and distributing centre, Melville bids fair to become one of the important cities of
Western Canada.
WATBOUS: The meeea of the henlth seeker, situate near the shores of
the famous Little Mnnitou Lake, and in the centre of one of the finest
farming sections of Saskatchewan,
BIGGAR: The opportunity of opportunities, located In the heart of a
wonderfully rich and fertile agricultural district, and with railway facilities that guarantee a future, being not only one of the most important
Grand Trunk Pnclflc divisional points on the main line between Winnipeg
nnd Edmonton, but is the junction of the branch lines of the Grand Trunk
Pacific to Battleford and Calgary, which will be hurried to completion at
an early date. The C. P. R. runs through Biggar, and all C. P. R. trains
stop there.
TOFXELD: The terminus of the branch line from Calgary, situate near
the shores of the Beaver Lake. The discovery of natural gas and of clay,
and having* nt its door several square miles underlaid with lignite coal,
promise the development at Tofleld of Important manufacturing industries.
EDSON: The last prairie divisional point on main line of Grand
Trunk Pacific, and the gateway to the Peace River Country. Rich in
natural resources, Edson lots fulfill every requirement for safe and profitable investment. .
REMEMBER THE PRICES, $75.00 to $300.00, and terms of one-tenth
cash and balance in nine equal monthly payments—no interest.

Eight years ago Canada exported twelve million dozen eggs
during the fiscal year, representing a value of £346,648. In 1909
the egg exports had fallen, to 552,850 dozen, worth £24,863. Last
year the exports amounted to practically nothing. The gradual
decline in export is shown by the following official returns:—
Doz. Eggs        Value
1902        11,635,108       £346,648
1903         7,404,100 287,226
1904          5.780,316 210,678

1909            552,850 24,863
The reason of this decline is due to the fact that the home
demand is equal to the supply. Canada is now importing eggs
from Russia and Germany. Experts state that a golden harvest
could be reaped if the Canadian farmer were to increase his stock
of poultry and carefully study trade conditions.
Statistics issued by the department of trade and commerce on
the 2nd inst. show that the total quantity of grain in store at
terminal and eastern transfer elevators for the week ending May
12 last was 1,393,147 bushels. Of this amount Fort William and
Port Arthirr had 12,530,583 . bushels, the remainder being in
eastern transfer elevators. Of the latter Montreal is easily in the
lead with 69,883 bushels in Montreal warehouses and elevators
and 663,118 in the harbor commissioners elevator. A feature of
the statistics is that the elevators of Halifax and St. John have
no grain at all.
There are now nearly 2,500 branches of Canadian banks in
Canada; to be exact, the number is 2,496. This is by far the

During the past ten years Canada has received nearly two
million immigrants of whom approximately, 750,000 were from
Great Britain, and 700,000 were from the United States. The immigration bulletin just issued gives the actual figures up to the
end of the fiscal year, March 31, as 1,714,326 for the decade. Since
then nearly 200,000 more have arrived, divided about equally
between British and American.
According to occupation, about 65 per cent, of the immigrants
arriving from the United States are farmers or farm labourers who
for the most part have settled in the prairie provinces. Thirty-
eight per cent, of the total number from across the line made entry
for homesteads in the west. About thirty per cent, of the British
and continental arrivals were farmers or farm labourers while
twenty-five per cent were classed as general labourers and nearly
the same percentage were classed as mechanics. The influx of
negroes has totalled only a little over four hundred, while 5,200
Hindus have come. Of the British immigrants, approximately
560,000 have been English and Welsh, 150,000 have been Scotch,
and about 45,000 have been Irish. The figures for other nationalities include the following:
Austria Hungarians, 121,000; Italian, 63,817; Hebrew, 48,675;
Russia, 38,950; Swedes, 19,349; Germans, 21,145; French, 16,236;
Norwegian, 13,798; Syrians, 5,223.
The distribution of the immigrants by provinces gives a good
idea of their respective population growth: _ SaskatcheAvan and'
Alberta got a little over half a million immigrants during the
decade, Ontario came next with 403,898; Manitoba got 309,623;
Quebec, 258,820; British Columbia and the Yukon, 188,599, and
the Maritime provinces only 73,902.
Western Canada therefore got some 300,000 more new settlers
than eastern Canada.

British Columbia's
Discusses Progress of the Province
(Special Interview)
Among the Dominion Premiers who
have just arrived in London is the
Hon. Richard McBride, of British Columbia, wdio looks with the utmost
satisfaction upon the future of that
The country is so celebrated for its
magnificent climate, fine scenery, and
hunting and fishing facilities that Mr.
McBride, in an interview with one of
our representatives today, considered
it quite unnecessary to dilate upon
those features.
"Britisli Columbia," he said, "is increasing in population and wealth at
a pace far beyond anything ever
known in its previous history. This
may be accounted for partly by reason of the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway development,
as well as the extensions in our territory to the Great Northern Railway.
"The completion of the Panama
canal, which is expected within the
next four years, will assuredly mean
a great deal for the development of
the Pacific North-West. In addition
to the railway projects, the municipal authorities are carrying out very
large extensions of their various highway systems. With the wonderful
territory we have behind all these
transportation routes there is no
question as to the future of the country.
Overcoming Difficulties
"British Columbia is the largest
province in Canada, and possesses a
greater variety of resources, perhaps,
than any other. Owing to its configuration, and the fact that it is traversed by a couple of mountain
ranges, the problem of development
has been a little more complicated
than in other parts of the country.
However, modern road and railway
building has surmounted these difficulties, and the country is coming into its own.
"Our natural resources, chiefly timber, fish, minerals, and agriculture,
including fruit growing, must be pretty well known to the people of the
Homeland who are at all interested
in the Overseas Dominions. What we
want in British Columbia is population and more capital. There are
many excellent investments, but people should proceed cautiously, as we
are anxious that the money should
flow iri the right channels.
Satisfactory Immigrants
"I have noticed letters from Canada now and then in some papers in
the Old Country which would appear
to discredit many of the statements
with regard to British Columbia, but
when these are traced to their source
they are found to have emanated
from those who are not in a position to speak with experience. We
are getting the right class of emigrant, but we are so far away that
other Provinces reap some of the advantages we should otherwise gain
"The country is going ahead by
leaps and bounds. The way our districts are growing tells the story very
quickly. There will be a large contingent from British Columbia in
London for the Coronation, not only
those wdio have emigrated from the
Homeland, but many Canadians who
arc looking forward to a pleasant
holiday."—St. James' Gazette.

Iroquois The Week ventures to suggest
that the class of evidence which would
probably haA'e secured the conviction of
Captain Sears if produced at his trial
should be forthcoming. Reference is
made to expert testimony of a scientific
character bearing upon the exact effect of
the disposition of the cargo in a vessel of
the construction of the Iroquois. There
Avas plenty of evidence at the trial of the
"rule of thumb" order, and this evidence
Avas about equally balanced pro and con,
but it Avas the kind of evidence Avhich a

that far from being' the last word in snob:
bery" the play is one of the most beautiful vindications of loA'e as the supremo
influence in marriage. True it deals, with
money and money-bags, but only to satirise
both, and to show hoAV inconspicuous and
mean they are when compared with the
healthy, natural impulses of human nature. It is true that the editor in a defence for printing such a paragraph in the
editorial columns urged that it Avas copied
from the "Nation," and that it does not
folloAv because it Avas so placed that he
endorsed it. Tavo reflections occur on this
remarkable statement. The first is that
the editor ought to have known that the
"Nation," one of the most revolutionary
and ultra-radical of papers, AA'Ould be likely to vieAV such a function a "Command
Performance" with jaundiced eyes. The
other is that any paragraph placed in
the editorial columns of a paper Avithout
comment is rightly assumed to represent
the editorial views.
It is proposed in Toronto to debar Avomen teachers from promotion to the prin-
cipalships of schools. The Toronto Star
demurs, and urges tliat "there is little use
in extending the privilege of education to
women if they are to be excluded from
promotion," and adds that "the sphere of
Avomen in this connection should be Avider
to include the best positions such as inspectorships." In taking this view the
Star is running counter to the most advanced expert opinion on the subject of
teaching and teachers. The vieAV which
The Week has consistently enforced for
many years is that there are far too many
Avomen and far too feAV men in the teaching profession. That to this is to be
attributed the decadence of sound education, aud the almost entire absence of discipline which are so obseiwant on the American Continent. The Star AA'ould be rendering far greater service if it advanced
the policy of large increases in the remuneration of male teachers so that men
of mark would be attracted and retained
in what is after all the noblest profession
in the world.
The report published in the daily press
as to the burning up of the gasoline
launch which is iioav carrying passengers
and mail betAveen the Islands is substantially correct, which justifies the strongest
censure possible upon those persons responsible for using such a boat for such
a purpose. One would have thought that
the experience of Captain Sears, albeit
he Avas lucky enough to escape conviction
on a criminal charge, would have acted
as a deterrent to any foolhardy adventures
of a similar character. The pretext by
means of which the laAv is evaded when
passengers are classed as "deck-hands" is
a miserable subterfuge, and if there is
a technical compliance with the letter of
the laAv there is an absolute violation of
its spirit. Once again one asks almost
hopelessly, "Is there no jurisdiction OA'er
this service?"
In their daily political duels the Colonist and the Times, hard pressed for picturesque phraseology, fall back upon the
use of metaphors and occasionally get them
badly mixed. In a recent issue the Times
declares that it is prepared to hatch some
"frisky colts" from "some nice eggs" in
its own special and particular "mare's
nest." If this is at all possible the very
extensive experience which the Times has
had with "mares' nests" should count
for something.

THE  WEEK,  SATURDAY,  JUNE  17,  1911
On Friday, June 9th, the beautiful
new ball-room of the Alexandra Club j
presented a very gay scene, when the |
bachelors of Victoria held their annual ball, which proved so greal a
success. The ball-room was artistically decorated with smilax and other
greenery, while the supper table was
daintily arranged with baskets of
marguerites and trailing greenery
and oriental poppies.

The Majestic Theatre.
One is sometimes apt to grow tired
of Indian stories told on the moving
picture house screen, but assuredly
if all were as good as "Red Eagle,"
which appeared at the Jlajcstic at
lhe beginning of the week the public
would be clamouring for more. In
tllis case there was an ancient legend
upon whicii to work and consequently the interest was much keener. "A
Knight of the Road" dealt neither
wilh the days of chivalry nor yet with
the adventures of the ubiquitous bagman, but was a good serio-comic
detailing the experiences of an hobo.
Romano Theatre.
The dear old farce concerning borrowed babies came back al us again
in another form at the Romano this
week and proved as popular as ever:
in fact it seemed funnier in the pictures than in real stage life. A good
drama was provided by the Powers
Company in "With Eyes That See
Not." I am inclined to think that
this firm puts up just about the very
best of these emotional scenes. During Jliss England's absence Mrs.
Rurnctt has been charming the audiences with her song selections.
"The Lily."
The much discussed and still more
heralded great third act of "The
Lily" at the Victoria Theatre tonight would save any play, for not
in many decades has there been an
act written that piles emotion upon
emotion, situation upon situation, and
surprise upon surprise, with such vivid craftiness as David Belasco does
in this one momentous scene of a
play which set Europe arguing three
years ago. and for the entire theatrical season last year set New York
play-goers thinking. This year the
same big company, headed by Nance
O'Neil, Charles Cartwright and including Julia Dean. Alfred Hickman,
Oscar Eagle, Antoinette Walker, etc.,
has been playing to capacity houses
everywhere, evidencing the fact that
Iheir reputation for excellence in
stage detail has preceded them, and
lhey arc welcomed accordingly.
John Drew.
On Friday evening. June 23rd, John
Drew comes to the Victoria Theatre
with "Smith," his best success of re-
; cent years. The author of the piece
is \Y. Somerset Maugham, who wrote
! "Jack Straw," "Lady Frederick" and
j other successful comedies. "Smith"
is said lo overtop all his previous ef-
forls. Aside from the play, critics
are agreed that no more excellently
balanced company, or one more nearly attaining to perfection in its work,
than Jir. Drew's supporting organization, has been seen 011 the American stage. The selection of the different players was a matter of special care on the part of Charles Frohman. for the reason that he takes infinite pride in the John Drew organization. The result has justified his
efforts in "Smith." The piece, it
may be safely said, deserved his care,
for it is not only a capital play, but
it gives Jir. Drew an uncommonly
line part. In the supporting company
are JIary Boland. Isabel'Irving. Syb
il   Thorndykc,   Jane   Laurel,   Jlorton
Selton, Hassard    Short    and    Lewis j
Chevalier as a Humanitarian.
Chevalier is  doing work for humanity quite as important as that which
Dickens accomplished in his exposure!
of  the   same   conditions   in   England I
due to imprisonment for debt.    Che-1
valier is devoting his campaign to the
eradication  of  conditions  existing in]
England with the regard to the paupers  of  the  country  and  their  maintenance   at   the   public   "Crib."     The
workhouse, the last resort fit the destitute, is as horrible a spectre to the
I poor in England today as was form-*
I erly Ihe law which permitted imprisonment for debt. Although much has
been    done    of  late  lo  remedy  the
hardships endured by inmates of the
public workhouses, tliere still  remain
many grievous conditions, one in particular,  thc  separation  of  wives  and
husbands,   which   is   cruelly   hard   on
devoted  old  couples  compelled  by a
hard fate to seek tllis last haven. It
: is against this separation that Chevalier appeals in his "Workhouse Jlan."
; He believes that it is an outrage on
humanity to separate two old people
in the evening of their life.   The terrors of pauperism are manifolded by
! the thought  of separation, when old
I men and old women who have fought
1 the  battles  of  life  side  by  side  are
finally beaten and compelled fo seek
j shelter   offered   by   charity,   and   are
1 then thrust away in separate places,
and robbed—as by the hand of death
J—of tiie companionship of life. In the
I "Workhouse   Jlan"  Chevalier  strikes
la   human   note   that   goes   throbbing j
I his hearers.    It is promised that this j

above a lace skirt which Avas edged

or kid with an obi bow at the front
or back. The belts are crushed. White
linen parasols with a Avide edge of
black velvet ribbon are effective for
summer gOAvns. A taffeta goAvn seen
at a restaurant the other evening attracted attention because of its charming blend of colours. The silk of the
gOAvn was citron coloured and the
coat was of yellow mousseline de
soie, veiled with blue, the two films
not falling entirely flat against each
other. The blue and yellow gauze
were edged separately, one Avith yel-
Ioav satin ribbon and the other Avith

over the other. The Avide angel

the material rather than in colour, for
there is a present tendency to eliminate extraordinary colour combinations. Colours are blended now rather
than contrasted. Evening gowns for
this season are dainty looking affairs
of light silks and satins, as well as
of the more diaphanous chiffons and
mousselines, but they are characterized by a hint of stateliness and dignity that distinguishes them at once
from  thc  frou-frou   effects  of  other

Puffs of chiffon or mot'sseline over
a strip of ribbon usually of a bright
color form one of the popular trimmings for skirts and coats of summer
gowns. Sometimes three of the shir-
