QrarvJ, Jury Protests Against the
Cruelty of Its Location.
Weeks ago, in several successive issues of this papeY, attention was directed to the super-exquisite cruelty displayed by the city council in the maintenance ol thc home for the aged and
dependent veterans of pioneer days.in a
corner of the cemetery—their only
glimpse of the busy world in which they
have played useful parts being. across
the silent city of the dead, from which
they are now but one step removed.
There is something particularly bitter
in the philosophy which contemplation
of their surroundings must engender in
the minds of these old men, and there
surely is enough broad charity in the
hearts of Victorians to insist. that it
should not be so. The building and its
equipment also are utterly inadequate
and unsuitable, and there is no public
institution in which thorough and drastic reforms are more urgently demanded. "Progress" rejoices to see that not
only has the grand jury attendant at
the present court of assize dealt with
this matter, corroborating and endorsing the views expressed by this paper,
but the Colonist has also, locally joined in the good work. It is to be hoped
that the freshened agitation will not be
in vain. Here is what the Grand Jury
had to say on the subject:
"We think the building a standing
disgrace to the city of Victoria, and
would urgently request thc authorities
to take immediate steps to secure a
suitable site and construct a building
as shall meet the special needs of such
an institution. Thc present building is
a mere shack, and in a deplorable condition, and quite inadequate for the purposes for which it is used. We would
respectfully submit that the new site be
far removed from the present environs,
where the outlook for the old men shall
be brighter and less suggestive of the
closing scene in life's drama. We would
also add that, in our opinion, Mr. Mcintosh, the caretaker, makes the best of
an old building, and evidently takes an
interest in bis work."

—High  Price of Carelessness:
It is the non-political and strictly
business B. C. Lumberman which thus
refers to the immense timber loss in
British Columbia of the present season,
and the responsibility of • the government therefore: "With an estimated loss
by bush fires of five million dollars to
standing timber throughout the province
during the season, the British Columbia government has little reason to be
proud of the parental care which it exercises over this valuable public asset.
If the experience of the past summer
does not suggest remedial action, we
know not what will; The outcome is
self-evident: Efficient fire wardency
system at an annual cost of say $50,000,
or the present rotten system with a provincial loss of $5,000,000."
—The Hint Courteous:
"Progress" begs lo present its compliments to Mr. Thomas Watson, chief
of the Victoria Fire Department, and
express the hope that upon his return,
refreshed and stimulated by the proceedings of thc convention of fire chiefs,
his attention will be given to the accumulation of dangerous ash and waste
boxes encumbering backyards in 'the
central portion of the city, and which
are an ever present source of fire danger. Tn years gone by these receptacles
were regularly inspected by the chief—
and fire danger was thereby much depreciated. ■    	
—Bad Boys Beware:
The, attention of thc police mighlt
with advantage be given to a coterie of
bad boys (and a few bad girls also)
who congregate nightly on Hillside
■•avenue ,and amuse themselves while
they annoy thc neighborhood hy loud
and unseemly talking, stone-throwing,
etc. The ages of the young offenders
grade from ten to sixteen, and they
show small profit by parental discipline.
Oak Bay avenue, in Ihe vicinity of Foul
Bay road, has also its had hoy contingent, who would be none thc worse for
a little police advice.

—Trustee   Hall's   Bright   Idea:
At the last meeting of the public
school board Trustee Lewis Hall was
to the fore with a brand new and strictly original idea. It was apropos of thc
admitted undesirability of Chinese pupils
being brought into contact with white
children in thc public schools, and was
in the nature of a suggestion that all
Chinese pupils should be compelled to
adopt European clothing and cut off
their queues. Surely the trustee docs
not wish to be taken seriously in such a
suggestion—a suggestion that is utterly
at discord with the best principles of
British liberty of the subject? It is
doubtful indeed if thc courts would not
promptly intervene were an attempt
made on the lines proposed by Dr. Hall,
and it is certain that the Chinese whose
children desire to educate themselves
in thc Canadian fashion should not be
so insulted as proposed. So long as
one dresses cleanly and decently, the
question of garb and of hair-dressing
is rightly one of individual taste, with
which neither school board nor any
other public body has legitimate right
to interfere. Such suggestions as thc
one referred to are only in thc direction
of bringing the common-sense and justice of thc Canadian public into disrepute.
Now that the exhibition of 1904 is a
matter of history and the praises due
its promoters and managers have been
right willingly accorded, it may not be
amiss to ventilate a grievance that
seems to have its foundation in an injustice to exhibitors; contributors
in the art department are specially concerned. They aver that their entries
were made in good faith and their
money accepted, for competitions described in detail in the catalogue. The
natural and only fair proposition in connection would be as they understood it,
that the best picture in each of the respective classes, would take the first
prize, and the others in the descending
scale of merit receive their proper recognition. In numerous cases however—
.in paintings, china decorative art, and
floriculture—first prize money was withheld and the exhibit listed first in merit
among those competing was awarded
second money, or third. The explanation forthcoming was that the judges
did not think the entry up (to a first
prize standard. But there was no specified standard to work by.save only the
feeling in the matter of the judges, and
this could not be accepted as satfsjfacti-
ory. The result may be economy to the
fair authorities in prize money, but it is
held to be scarcely fair treatment to
exhibitors, nor encouragement for them
to assist in the success of future exhibitions.
Nor were the judgments in the art
division altogether above criticism. For
example competition was invited in outline drawing for boys or girls under sixteen. Among the competitors was
one little girl of twelve, who
entered a copy from the antique which
she had enlarged to life size,. This
was awarded second prize as against a
simple floral design, also a copy but a
direct copy, entered by a child of seven.
The majority of the drawings entered
as from the antique were in reality
copies from the flat, yet there was no
discrimination against them for this nonconformance witli the rules. Miss Pemberton, Mr. H. M. Lamb and Mr. H.
Carmichael arc understood to have been
the judges, and the former assuredly
should have discriminated in this connection. 1
With respect to the general exhibition
of original works, one would assume
that originality would have been insisted upon as a prime essential of qualification—originality both of subject and
composition. And yet one finds the
first prize in water colors, (animal or
figure, original) awarded to an unblushing copy of a Chinese type which is
found upon the souvenir postal cards
in almost any bookstore!
In the art classes one estimate has
it that $49 was withheld from exhibitors. These contributors to the exhibition contend with apparent justice that
if, their entries did not comply with the
conditions of the competition entered
they might properly be disqualified; but
not received but degraded in the award
to a minor place with the' explanation
that it has not reached some mythical
and undefined standard requisite for a
first prize winner.

Thc Royal Soap Co's guessing competition in connection with thc New
Westminster Exhibition, has been won
by Mrs. Peiscr of this cily, who held
that the exhibited liar of soap should
weigh about 1053 lbs. As a matter of
face it went just R ounces over. Because she was thus near thc mark Mrs.
Peiscr is the owner of a handsome silver service.
—Good Work:
Thc Colonist is to be cordially complimented upon the excellent interview
published on Wednesday, with thc
quartette of war correspondents returning by the Empress and more particularly Mr. Frederick Palmer of Collier's
Weekly. Considering the very limited
time afforded thc interviewer by the
short stay of the Empress here, his work
is thc more creditable* Such local matter should be signed, in order that due
honor may be paid thc individual. 2
Wedding of Tuesday Afternoon a
Brilliant and   Notable
Social   Event.
In the marriage at St. John's Church
oh Tuesday afternoon of Mr. John Gur-
ney Fordham of Vancouver, third son of
the late Mr. John Hampden Fordham
and Mrs. Fordham, of Melboum Bury,
Royston, Cambridgeshire and 9 Philli-
more Gardens, London, W.C., (a nephew
of the noted Sir Wilfred Lawson, Bart.,
of Brayton, Cumberland) to Miss Cori-
sande, third daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
I. W. Powell, of Oakdene, Victoria,
British Columbia society found its chief
and yery agreeable occupation of the
present week. There is perhaps no family more generally esteemed in this
western province than that of the bride,
the Doctor and Mrs. Powell being
among the earliest accessions. from the
Old Land to this colonial capital, and
the substantiality and stately courtesy
of the Motherland being merged with
the cordial informality of the new world
in the kindly hospitality of Oakdene.
The family has also played a not inconspicuous part in the making of history
for Victoria and this westernmost
Canadian province, and all its members
—and not the least among them the
bride of Tuesday last—have been esteemed and leading figures in the social
and artistic life of British Columbia
from the "early days." Hence it was
in part that a conspicuously large proportion of the foremost Victorians
evinced a personal and cordial interest
in the ceremony of Tuesday, which
crowned the happiness of a most popular daughter of Victoria, while it inevitably causes her loss to the city
which has been her home from childhood. Mr. and Mrs. Fordham are to
make their home in the neighbor city of
Vancouver, and hence Victoria friends
console themselves that they may at
least be favored with frequent visits
Tlie marriage was solemnized at 3:30
o'clock in the historic "little iron
church," St. John's, His Lordship the
Bishop of Columbia officiating, assisted
by.'Rev. Mr. Ard,. M. A. , The
sun, whose smiling face had sullenly
been withdrawn for several previous
days, relented as the wedding hour approached, and the beautiful floral decorations of the church were bathed in
the full radiance of a most glorious
autumnal afternoon. Of the decorations
it is sufficient to say they were in the
best of taste, the floral adornment of
the sacred edifice for the harvest festival remaining in place, and being refreshed and supplemented with artistic
arrangements of palms, roses, asters,
smilax, and seasonable blossoms, for
which the girlhood friends of the bride
were .responsible—conspicuous among
the decorators being Mrs. W. F. Burton, Miss Dolly Loewen, Miss Pemberton, and Miss Drake.' Assuredly it may
be said that the result of their labor of
love was a treat for the artistic eye.
There was a large and fashionable
concourse of friends to wirhess the
church ceremony, the capacity of the
sacred building being taxed. Promptness marked the arrival of the bridal
party, who entered to the music of
"Tannhauser," Mr. E. H. Russell presiding at the organ. The choir, which
played an important part in the service,
was supplemented by the fine voices of
Mrs. R. H. Pooley, Miss Todd and Mrs.
VV. E. Green, the latter of whom sang
with her accustomed rare taste and
sympathetic expression, the solo "Beloved It Is Morn." The hymn "Oh Perfect Love" was also notable for the
beauty and finish of its  interpretation.
The bride was given away by Dr.
Powell, her father, and never has a
fairer stood at thc altar of St. Johns to
plight her troth. Her gown was a
beautiful creation of chiffon cloth over
white taffeta, the yoke of chiffon having
a deep bertha of Duchesse lace, the
large sleeves also being finished with
exquisite lace at the elbows, and the
skirt a mystery of bewitching shirrs
and frills. The veil was daintily arranged with thc significant and romance-
fragrant wreath of orange blossoms;
the long train of rare Duchesse and rose
point lace, trimmed with narrower lace
of the same kind, was borne by little
Miss Nora Jones, a picturesque little
figure and a very important member
of the bride's entourage The. bride's
only ornament was a pearl and turquoise
necklet, and her flowers a shower of
white roses and maidenhair fern.
Six fair bridesmaids attended the central member of the wedding company-
Miss Powell and Miss Violet Powell
(sisters of the bride), Miss Eva Loeweii,
Miss Sophie Tupper (daughter of Sir
Charles Hibbert and Lady Tupper of
Vancouver), Miss Violet Vernon, and
Miss Evelyn Tilton. Each of the sextette was gowned in white point d'esprit
over white silk and chiffon, blue turquoise girdles, with streamers; and
picture hats of w.iite point d'esprit with
bands of accentuating blue velvet; their
bouquets were of pink and white carnations, white roses and delicate
ferns, the gifts of the bridegroom.
Mr. ~ecil Merritt was best man, and
the groomsmen Mr. George E. and Mr.
B. W. Powell, Lieut. R. M. R. West,
R. N., and Dr. Herman Robertson. Mr.
Alexis Martin, Mr. Harold Robertson, and Mr. T. E. Pooley were the
Upon the return of the wedding party
to Oakdene, a reception and dejeuner
were held, a very large number of
friends welcoming the earliest opportunity to present their congratulations and
good wishes. The drawing room was
radiant and fragrant with many roses,
and with an openwork screen, a lacelike tracery of smilax, sweet peas and
ferns, as a background, the bride and
groom received the felicitations of their
friends beneath a bell of dahlias, cry-
santhemuins and ferns. Mrs. Powell
received the guests of the afternoon
with charming graciousness, in a handsome toilette of reseda voilene, with
pretty inserted lace trimming and smart
toque of the same' shade. She was assisted by her eldest ' daughter, Mrs.
Langworthy, charmingly gowned in soft
opalesque silk trimmed with rose point
lace; she also wore a large black picture hat and carried a shower bouquet
of pink and white carnations'. Refreshments were served in one of three
marquees on the lawn, erected by
the bluejackets and crowned with
gay bannerettes from the naval
station, their sides being banked with palms, ferns, and a multitude
of blossoms. Upon the entrance of Mr.
and Mrs. Fordham, the Lord Bishop
gracefully proposed the bride's health,
which was acknowledged in her behalf
by the groom, who next proposed the
healths of the bridesmaids, for whom
Mr. Merritt acted as spokesman in response. Dr. Robertson also gave the
health of Dr. and Mrs. Powell, which
was enthusiastically honored. The afternoon hours ensuing passed on golden
wings, merry voices, happy-hearted
laughters and the harmony of the violin,
flute and harp in an orchestra under Mr.
Sampson's direction leaving nothing incomplete in the auspicious day.
Of the very many friends receiving
cards for the reception the following

Mr. and Mrs. Fordham left in the
evening, by the Princess Victoria, for
Seattle, where they are for a few days
guests at the Washington. They will
continue their journey across the continent and to England, where several
weeks will be spent in visiting with Mr.
Fordh'am's relative. Mr. and Mrs.
Fordham expect to return to British
Columbia in February, when they will
take up their residence in Vancouver.
The bride's going away costume was in
hydrangea, blue broadcloth, opening over
a blouse o'f white chiffon cloth, with old
French lace garnitures and buttons of
brilliants and pearls; the costume was
surmounted with a large drab moleskin
chapeau trimmed with orange and facings of white kid, large ostrich plumes
crowning the whole.
Few brides are so fortunate as Mrs..
Fordham in the number, beauty and
value of those souvenirs of the wedding-
day with which it is the pleasure of
friends to accompany their felicitations.
Not only were her bridal gifts "both
numerous and costly" as the reporter's
;stereotyped phrase has it—they were
happy evidences of individual care' in
.selection that produced but few duplicates, while the entire handsome collection was remarkable for " the good
taste displayed in its composition. The
groom's gifts to the bride were a handsome morocco dressing case with silver
and ivory fittings, a gold and enamel
.bracelet, two sapphire and diamond
rings, a diamond watch bracelet, a bicycle, etc. Among the other presents
were the following: From Sir Henri

"Did ye iver see a man as proud iv
annything as Hogan is iv that kid iv
his?" said Air. Dooley.
"Wait till he's had iliven," said Air.
"Oh, iv course," said Air. Dooley, "ye
have contimpt t r an amachoor father
that has on'y wan offspring. An ol'
profissyonal parent like yc that's practically done nawhtin' all ye'er life but
be a father to helpless childher don't
understand th' emotions iv th' author
iv a limited edition. But Hogan don't
care. So far as I am able to judge
fr'm what he says, his is th' on'y perfect an' complete child that has been
projooced this cinchry. He looks on
you th' way Hinery James wild look-
on Alary Jane Holmes.
"I Whit around to see this here pro-
jidy th' other day. Hogan met me at
th' dure. 'Wipe off ye'er feet,' says
he. 'Why?' says I. 'Baby,' says he.
'Mikrobes,' he says. He thin conducted
me to a basin iv water an' insthructcd
me to wash me hands in a preparation
iv carbolic acid. Whin I was tliurly
perfumed, he inthrojooced me to a
toothless ol' gintlcman who was sittin'
up in a cradle atin' his right foot.
'Ain't he fine?' says Hogan. 'Won-
dherfitl,' saiys I. 'Did ye iver sec such
an expressyon?' says he. 'Niver,' says
I; 'as Hi ven is me judge, niver.' 'Look
at his hair,' he says. 'I will,' says I.
'Ain't his eyes beautiful?' 'They ar-re,'
I says. 'Ar're they glass or on'y imitation?; says I. 'An' thim cunnin' little feet,' says he. 'On close inspection,'
says I, 'yes, they ar-re. They ar-re
feet. Ye'er offspring don't know it,
though. He thinks that wan is a doughnut.' 'He's not as old as he looks,' says
Hogan. 'He cudden't be,' says I. 'He
looks old enough to be a diminycratic
candvidate f'r Vicc-presidint, Why),
he's lost most iv his teeth,' saiys I.
'Go wan,' says he, 'he's just gettin'
thim. He has two uppers an' four
lowers,' he says. 'If he had a few-
more, he'd be a sleepin' car,' says I.
'Does he speak?' says I. 'Sure,' says
Hogan. 'Say Poppa,' he says. 'Gah,'
says young Hogan. 'Hear that?' says
Hogan, 'that's poppa.' 'Say momma,'
says he. 'Gah,' says th' projidy. 'That's.
momma,' says Hogan. 'Sec, here's
Mistlrer Dooley,' says he. 'Blub,' says
•th' plienomyon. 'Look at that,' says
Hogan, 'he knows ye,' he says.
"Well, yc know Hinnissy, wan iv th'
things that has made trie popylar in th'
ward is that I make a bluff at adorin'
childher. Between you an' me, I'd as
lave salute a dishrag as a recent infant, but I always do it. So I put on
an allurin' smile an' says I, 'Well, little ol' goozy good, will' he give his
Doolcyiuns a kiss?' At that minyit
Hogan seized me be th' cullar an'
dhragged me away fr'm th' cradle.
'Wutl ye kill me child?' says he. 'How?'
says T. 'With a kiss,' says he. 'Am I
that bad?' says T. 'Don't yc know that
there ar-re mickrohes that can he
transmitted to an infant in a kiss?'
says he. 'Well,' says T with indignation, 'I'm not proud iv mysilf as an
antiseptic American.' I says, 'but in an
encounter between me an' that there
young cannibal,' I says, 'I'll lave it to
th' board iv health who takes th' biggest chance,' I says, an' we wirit out,
followed by a howl fr'm th' projidy.
'He's singin',' says Hogan. 'He has lost
his  notes,' says  I.
"Whin we got downstairs Hogan give
me a lecture on th' bringin' up iv childher. As though I needed it, me that's
been consulted on bringin' up half th'
childher in Archey road. 'In th' ol'
days,' says he, 'childher was brought
up catchras-catch-can,' he says. 'But it's
different now. They're as carefully
watched as a geeranyum in a. conservatory,' he says. Here it is. Th' first
thing that shud be done f'r a child is to
deprive it iv its parents. Th' less th'
infant sees iv poppa an' momma' th'
better f'r him. If they ar-re so base
as to want to look at th' little darlin',
they shud first be examined be a competent physician to see that there is
naWtliin' wrong with thim that they
cud give th' baby. They will thin take
a bath iv sulphuric acid an' bavin' carefully attired thimselves in a sturilized
rubber suit, they will approach within
eight feet iv th' objeck iv their ignoble
affection an' lave at wanst. In no case
mus' they kiss him or,fondle their pro
jeny. Alany diseases such as lumbago,
pain in th' chist, premachoor baldness,
senile decreptitude, which are privalent
among adults, can be communicated to a
child fr'm th' parent. Besides it is bad
f'r th' moral nature iv th' infant, Affection f'r its parents is wan iv th' mos'
dangerous symptoms iv rickets. Th'
parents may not be worthy iv th' love
of a truly sterilized child. An infant's
first jooty is to th' doctor to whom it
owes its bein' an' stayin'. Childher ar-re
imitative, an' if they see much iv their
parents they may grow up to look like
thim. That wud be a great misfortune.
If parents see their childher before they
enter Harvard, they ar-re f'rbidden to
teach thim foolish wurruds like "poppa"
an' "momma." At two a properly
brought up child shud be able to articulate indistinctly th' wurrud "Docther
Bolt on th' Care an' Feedin' iv Infants,"
which is betther thin sayin' "Momma"
an' more exact.
"Great care shud be taken iv th' infant's food. Durin' lh' first two years
it shud have nawthin' but milk. At
three a little canary bur'rd seed can be
added. At five an egg ivry other Choos"
dah. At siven an orange. At twelve th'
child may ate a shredded biscuit. At
forty th' little tot may have stewed
primes.   And so on.
" 'It's wondherfiil,' says Hogan, 'how
they've got it rayjooccd to a science.
They can almost make a short baby
long or a blonde baby black be addin'
to or rayjoocin' th' amount iv. pro-
tides an' caseens in th' milk,' he says,
'Haven't ye iver kissed ye'er young?'
says I. 'Wanst in ' awhile,' he says,
whin I'm tliurly disinfected I go up
an' blow a kiss at him through th'
window,' he says.
' 'Well,' says I, 'it may be all right,'
I says, 'but if I cud have a son an' heir
without causin' talk I bet ye I'd not
apply f'r a permit fr'm the health board
for him an' me to come together. Parents was made before childher, anny-
how, an' they have a prire claim to be
considhered. Sure, it may be a good
thing to bring them up on a sanitary
plan, hut it seems to me that they got
along all right in th' ol' days whin number two had just lamed to fall downstairs at lh' th' time number three dithered th' wurruld. Maybe they were
sthronger thin they ar-re now. Th' docther niver pretinded to see whether th'
milk was properly boiled. He cudden't
very well. Th' childher was allowed
to set up at th' table an' have a good
cup iv lay an' a pickle or two. If there
was more thin enough to go around,
they got what nobody else wanted.
They got plinty iv fresh air playin' in
alleys an' vacant lots an' ivry wanst in
awhile they were allowed to go down
an' fall into th' river. No attintion was
paid to their ditc. Th' prisint race iv
liayroes who are now startlin' the wur-
uld in fi-nance, polytics, th' arts an'
sciences, burglary an' lithrachoor, was
brought up on Water-millpn rinds, speckled apples, raw onions stolen fr'm th'
grocer ,an' encoanut pie. Their nursery was lh' back yard. They lamed to
walk as soon as they were able, an' if
they got bow-legged, ivrybody said they
wud be sthrong men. As f'r annybody
previntin' a fond parent fr'm comin'
liomc Saturdah night an' wallowin' in
his beaucheous child, th' doctor that
suggested it wud have to move. No,
sir,' says I, 'get as much amusement as
yc can out iv yc'r infant,' says 1
'Teach him to love ye now,' I says, 'before he knows. Afther awhile he'll get
on to ye an' it'll be too late.'"
"Ye know a lot about it," said Mr.
"I do," said Air. Dooley, "Not bein'
an author I'm a gr-rcat critic."—Finlcy

The chief topic, one might almost say
the only topic, of conversation in this
city in connection with the federal elections is the transcontinental railway policy of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. The interest taken in.it is of the most intelligent kind, and there is a desire to know
just what the actual facts are. "Progress" recognizes the difficulty of dealing with a party question in a non-parti-
zan way, but it hopes to be able to show
that it is not impossible, and that what
follows will enable its readers to form
their own conclusions as to the merits
of the government policy, which has
been crystallized into an Act of Parliament. There is an almost universal
consensus of opinion, in this province
at least, that a second transcontinental
railway, north of the Canadian Pacific,
is necessary for the proper development
of Canada. The opposition which the
Conservatives showed at the outset of
the discussion has disappeared, and the
leader of the Opposition, after presenting several quite different lines of policy, has finally admitted that Canada
needs some such railway as the government has arranged for. It is not necessary, therefore, to make any argument
in defence of the idea upon which the
government policy rests.
The government plan, as adopted by
Parliament, provides for the construction of a railway from Moncton, N.B.,
by way of Quebec to a port on the
Pacific Coast of this province. This involves approximately 3,400 miles of railway. Of this mileage the government
is to build 1,800 miles and the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company 1,600
miles. (It must be understood that the
figures are approximations, but they are
close enough to the actual facts for all
practical purposes.) The government
portion is between Halifax and Winnipeg. It is to be leased to the Grand
Trunk Pacific for 50 years at a rental
equal to 3 per cent on the cost, but :no
rent is to be paid by the Company diir-
ing the first seven years. At the expiration of the SO yea''s the line reverts
to the government. During the continuance of the lease the Intercolonial Railway is to have running rights over this
part of the line. The line to be constructed by the G. T. P. Company will
extend from Winnipeg to the Pacific
Coast. To aid in the financing of this
part of the work, the government guarantees the company's bonds to the amount of 75 per cent, of the cost of construction of the prairie section but not
to exceed $13,000 a mile; for thc British Columbia section the government
guarantees the company's bonds for 75
per cent, of the actual cost. There is a
provision under which the government
may, at the expiration of 50 years, acquire this part of thc line from the
company, so that, if the people so wish,
the whole line may after 50 years become a government-owned and government-operated road.
Against this it is objected:
1st.—That the line as proposed will
have its principal terminus at Portland,
2nd.—That thc government is involving the country to the extent of at
least $150,000,000 and giving the railway to the company.
3rd.—That there is no provision for
the beginning of work simultaneously
at Winnipeg and the Pacific Coast.
4th.—That it would be better to build
the line as a government work from beginning to end and operate the same as
a government road.
We think the above fairly states thc
government plan and the substantial objections of the opposition to it. Minor
matters necessarily enter into the discussion, but nothing that is really material to the issue.
ist.—-As to thc terminus of the line,
that is the actual business terminus.
To appreciate thc objection made on
this score, it is necessary to begin at
the inception of the project. In 1902
Mr. Hays and some other gentlemen
approached the government with a proposal to build a line from North Bay
to the Pacific Coast. At North Bay the
new line was intended to connect with
the Grand Trunk, and the new railway
would be a feeder to that system, the
winter ocean terminus of which is at
Portland, Maine. This proposal was
rejected, the government saying that,
while willing to negotiate for thc construction of a second transcontinental
railway, it would not consider any project which did not secure that Canadian
traffic should be carried to the Canadian
seaboard. To this Mr. Hays and his
associates replied that.the Grand Trunk
Company was not prepared to build
such a line, and the result of the negotiations was the evolution of the plan
outlined above. But it was clear that
the mere fact that the new line would
exend to the Canadian Atlantic seaboard was no guarantee that the company operating it would send its business to that seaboard, especially as its
associate company, the Grand Trunk,
had an ocean terminus elsewhere. To
meet this objection the following clauses
were inserted in the contract with the
G. T. P. Company, which forms a part
of the Act of Parliament, is absolutely
binding upon the company, and can be
enforced by law:
"It is hereby declajred and agreed
between the parties to this agreement
that the aid herein provided for is
granted by the government of Canada
for the express purpose of encouraging
the development of Canadian trade and
the transportation of goods through
Canadian channels. The company accepts the aid on these conditions, and
agrees that all freight originating on
the line of the railway or its branches,
not specifically routed otherwise by the
shipper, shall when destined for points
in Canada be carried entirely on Canadian territory or between Canadian
inland ports, and that the through rate
on export traffic from the point of origin to the point of destination shall at
no time be greater via Canadian ports
than via United States ports, and that
all such traffic, not specifically routed
otherwise by the shipper, shall be carried to Canadian ocean ports."
In addition to this proviso there is
the following covenant:
"The company further agrees that it
shall not in any manner within its
power, directly or indirectly, advise or
encourage the transportation of such
freight by routes other than those above
provided, but shall in all respects, in
good faith, use its utmost endeavors to
fulfil the conditions upon which public
aid is granted, namely, the development
of trade through Canadian channels and
Canadian ocean ports."
Every reader can judge for himself
whether or not these provisions do not
prevent, as far as human ingenuity can
prevent, the shipment of freight to a
port in the United tSates. If the line
w'ere bwned ;ajnd operated by the government no more certain guarantee that
the traffic would be carried to Canadian
ports could be provided, because, even
in tire case of a government road, the
shipper would have the right to send
his goods by what route he might
2nd.—As to the obligation assumed by
the government.
The cost of the line from Moncton
to Winnipeg is to be paid by the government. This is estimated by the government at about $60,000,000, to which
must be added the interest during construction and during the seven years
when the G. T. P. Company will pay
110 rental. This will swell the cost to
something over $70,000,000. When this
amount has been expended the Dominion will have approximately 1,800 miles
of railway from Moncton to Winnipeg
leased to the Grand Trunk Pacific at a
rental equal to 3 per cent, on the cost.
An asset which pays interest upon its
cost, cannot be properly called a liability, especially as it will develop an
immence stretch of country and lead to!
a great expansion in the revenue. It
is quite true that the government has
undertaken to make this outlay of $70,-
000,000, approximately, but it is also
true that against the liability will be
offset a revenue paying asset that will
relieve the country of any charge except for the interest paid during construction and the first seven years of
(he lease.
For the portion of the line to be built
by the Company the government gives
the guarantees mentioned above. The
only amount which the government actually undertakes to pay in any event is
the interest upon 75 per cent, of the cost
of the section through British Columbia, which is to be paid for seven years
and is not to be recovered back from the
company. Mr. Fielding estimates that
this will be something over $3,000,000.
The 'whole liability which the government assumes on account of interest is
estimated by Mr. Fielding at under
$14,000,000. This includes everything.
But it will be said that the government stands as surety for the company's bonds, which is true enough, but
it has as security the railway and $20,-
000,000 of rolling stock, which the company pledges itself to provide; so that
if ever thc road has to be taken over by
the government, because of default in
thc payment of interest or for any other
reason, the Dominion would secure a
completely equipped line from Winnipeg
to the Pacific Coast for 75 per cent, of
half of its cost, as the following figures

at $18,000 per mile  ..   $19,800,000

That is to say excluding the interest,
which does not properly enter into this
calculation, the government, if it has
ever to take the road over from the
company to protect the country from
loss under its guarantee, will get $62,-
000,000 of equipped railway by converting a guarantee of $31,000,000 into an
actual liability.
3rd.—The beginning of construction
at the western terminus.
This is a matter that naturally appeals
strongly to the people of this province.
There is nothing in either the contract
or the Act of Parliament itself specifying when construction shall begin any-
wnere. It is provided that the government shall begin construction at Winnipeg simultaneously with the beginning
of construction there by the company,
but as long as the line, is completed within eight years, the company may begin
to build where it likes and when it likes.
There has been no declaration by the
company, official or otherwise, as to
when construction will be begun anywhere. The statement that, the work
will not be carried on from the western, or British Columbia, terminus, is
perfectly unwarranted. The company
has refused to bind itself to delay beginning work at Winnipeg until it has
determined upon its Pacific terminus and
located its line at this end, but it has
not said that it will not begin work on
the Pacific end as soon as these points
are settled. Each reader can decide for
himself whether or not it is probable
that the company, having eight years in
which to build the line, will take advantage of the facilty with which construction can be carried on* from the ocean
in British Columbia. There are no facts
bearing upon the question except what
is stated in this paragraph.
4th.—As to government ownership.
The position taken by the government
is that to construct such a railway as a
government work and to operate it as
such would be to incur risks and responsibilities which no government
ought to assume. If all that had to be
done was to build a railway and permit
it to get business as it offered, the experience of the Intercolonial would
hardly warrant so expensive an experiment; but more than this will be needed.
Lilies of steamers must be put upon
the ocean, the lakes and along the British Columbia coast. Terminal facilities must be provided on an extensive
scale. Hotels must be built and managed. Agencies must be established all
over the world, and in fact the government must become a great commercial
concern, competing with private comr
panies, yet handicapped in so doing by
the exigencies of politics. This is the
objection which the government takes,
and each reader must for himself determine if he thinks it a good one.
There is a point in this connection
which is worth passing notice. If it
would be wise to build the line as a
government work and operate it as a
department of the government, the conclusion follows that, in the opinion of
those who make this contention, the
line would pay as a government road,
notwithstanding all the disadvantages
under which the government would labor in operating it. If it would pay under such circumstances, it would certainly pay if handled by a company, and
if it will pay when handled by a company, the government incurs no responsibility further than for interest on the
eastern section during construction and
for seven years after, and interest on
75 per cent, of the cost of the British
Columbia section for seven years. Unless thc business of the road, if operated by the government, will not pay interest on the full cost of the whole line, it
would be folly to undertake it as a government work, and surely if it will do
this, it will pay interest on the cost of
the eastern section and on 75 per cent,
of the cost of the western section. The.
advocates of government ownership must
either avow their willingness to operate the line at a loss or admit that the
government will not be liable for anything on account of interest after seven
years, if the road is operated hy a company.
We think the aforegoing is a frank
statement of the plan of the government
and the objections of the opposition, and

that it cannot be alleged that it is in
the least partizan. Our object is to so
state the matter that each person can
for himself determine how to vote at
an election in which the government
policy as above outlined is the only real
question. Mr. Borden has outlined in a
general way the policy in regard to a
transcontinental railway which he will
pursue if he comes into power. It
would be foreign to the purpose of this
article to criticize his declaration in
any way. It is impossible to compare
a project, which is complete to the dotting of the last "i" and the crossing of
the last "t" with one that as yet only
consists of generalities, and necessa
must consist of generalities until s
time as the gentleman proposing it
had time and the facilities to take
the matter of details. It is suffic.
to say that the government present
perfected plan with a guarantee tha
can and will be carried out; Mr. I
den is obliged by the very nature of
position to simply indicate the geni
lines, which at present he is preparec
follow. No fair comparison can, th
fore, be instituted between the
things. PROGRESS, SATURDAY,   OCT.   IS, 1904

attended by Miss M. G. Andrews and
the groom by his brother, Mr. James
Miuuleton. Thc bride was becomingly
attired in white organdie, trimmed with
Valenciennes lace insertion. She carried a beautiful bouquet ,a gift from the
groom. Miss Andrews wore a handsome gown of white muslin and a pretty
gold bracelet, the groom's gift. The
large array of handsome presents testified to the popularity of the newly
married couple. A wedding supper was
afterwards held at which the guests took
advantage of the opportunity to offer
their congratulations. These were responded to by the groom in an appropriate manner. Mr. and Mrs. Middle-
ton were escorted to the Whatcom, on
which they took passage to the Sound,
by quite a crowd of friends. On returning from a honeymoon tour of
Washington state they will take up their
residence in Victoria.

"Progress" wishes to correct a statement made over the signature of Sir
Charles Hibbert Tupper to the effect
that the subject "better terms" for Brit-
 I       .ish Columbia was presented to the Can-
f; ;,adian House of Commons in 19x11 by
i Col. Prior and treated with scant courtesy by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Last week
Ave gave a brief history of the presentation of the claims of the province upon
the Dominion. These claims were not
in the nature of a demand for better
terms by which expression readers
must understand the increase of the allowance by the federal government to
the provincial government. "Better
Terms" have nothing to do with annual
appropriations. What Col. Prior referred to in his speech in 1001 was the
proposals laid before the Dominion government by Mr. Dunsmuir, who was
then premier. Col. Prior's speech was
simply a presentation orally with com-
■ ment of what Mr, Dunsmuir had already presented in writing. Sir Wilfrid Laurier took up the several points
and expressed his opinion freely upo
them. It is not the purpose of "Progress" to go into particulars; but having,
given an absolutely accurate outline
of what was done, it feels that it ought
not to allow its statement to be infer-
entially contradicted by Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper without saying anything in
reply. ,;' *'
The question of "better terms" for
British Columbia has never been discussed in Parliament. The most that
can be truthfully said about it is that
the government of Mr. McBride has
formulated a claim for the readjustment
of the financial relations of the province
and the Dominion, and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier has said that he proposes to
take up this and the demands of the
"other provinces of the earliest convenient day. Mr. Borden has said substantially that he will do the same thing,
if he comes into power. There is plenty
of material for a political campaign without resorting to a misrepresentation of
the facts of recent parliamentary history.	
The Board of Trade has been very
active since the last annual meeting and
has accomplished considerable good
work. At thc next meeting, which will
be held next month, it is proposed that
the rescinding of the order in council
permitting United States steamers to
engage in the coasting trade on the Pacific coast of Canada shall be discussed.
This order in council was passed at the
instance of the Victoria Board of Trade,
and when an attempt was made during
the height of the Klondike business to
have it rescinded, the motion was voted
down. Now that the trade has dwindled, and the share in it done by this city
has greatly fallen off, the action of the
government is sought. It is said that
the C. P. R. will enter into certain, undertakings as to the Skagway service,
if United States steamers arc kept from
handling Canadian freight destined for
the Yukon. The question is not of
nearly so much importance to Victoria
as it was, and as was pointed out at the
meeting of the Board yesterday, the
action asked of the government involves
the placing of the northern Canadian
business in the hands of one company.
A very interesting discussion may be
expected, when the question is again
brought up.
Editor "Progress":—I am informed
that (here is such a thing as a Milk
Inspection Act in existence here at the
present time, although facts point' to
(he contrary. A couple of years ago i:
"was a common occurrence (0 see milkmen stopped on the street and samples
taken from their cans to be tested. But
finch inspection appears now to be a
dead letter. To-day I had a glass of
milk witli my lunch, and was utterly
disgusted to find al the bottom of (he
glass a quantity of black muck of some
sort. It has nlso been a common occurrence (luring the past month to see a deposit of a quarter of an inch or more of
a disagreeaole looking black deposit in
the bottom of a pint pitcher. You can
readily see, sir. that no more nrolific
source of typhoid fever, diphtheria, etc.,
could exist than such disgustingly impure milk. It is not my intention at the
present time to mention names, but I
hope that milkmen interested will sec
for themselves that such a bad state of
affairs is not in their own interests. I
expect that llie trouble lies in that some
of thc men supplying milk in Victoria
do not insist that the cow's udder is
washed or at least wiped with a damp
cloth before milking.

lior can provide. "Captain Swift,"
fi the Penman," "A Social Highway:
and "Raffles"—they are all club-
chaps, playgoers like them, and
filiating circumstances are found for

made just a little more manly and
tctive as a rule than the best peo-
noving in the same play, and it is
rally bad that it should be so in-
r as the young person privileged to
id the theatre is concerned. Per-
the popularity of the well nigh
ssible stage criminal is at the root
e idiotic idolatry of convicted male-
|rs that has so shown itself among
lean young womanhood. One thing
rtain: the playwright who   pro»
Phineas T. Barnum whose biblical motto was "let your light so shine before
men." Falardo is assuredly a marvel
in the versatility he displays in imitating various band and orchestral instruments, chimes of bells, etc. But he
i"s inclined to spoil the effect of a thoroughly good act by his bombastic manifestations of self-approval—which really lead the public to expect too much
of him. His banjo and 'cello imitations
are particularly good and true to the
instrument, while his Salvation Army,
little German band, and street car climbing a grade are wonderful for their fidelity and the powes of observation and
reproduction they attest. The Three
Moores, old friends returning, are seen
and heard in a ridiculously amusing
skit that brings in a couple of trios
effectively  sung   (Mr.  Moore unques-

included in his stock iii trade.   The   known as "She Sleeps by the Suwanee

stronger and more satisfactory engagement that that of the Royal Italian band,
which they had for their fair week last

George Ade's notable comedy-drama,
"The County Chairman," which Henry
W. Savage offers at the Victoria theatre
on the evening of the 27th, does not rely
upon politics, as the title might indicate, for its chief interest—although the
.humors of a campaign for State Attorney in a village in the Middle West are
strongly brought out—really concerns
the love making of Till ford Wheeler
and Lucy Rigby. Wheeler is a fine
looking young fellow, the law partner
of Jim Hackler, the county chairman.
Lucy Rigby is a pretty schoolma'm, the
daughter of old Judge Rigby, the lifelong enemy of Hackler, and candidate
in opposition to Wheeler for State's
Attorney. This very human story engages the attention of the audience from
the beginning to the end of "The County   Chairman,"  the  greatest   American
play of a decade.

One of the strongest vaudeville turns
presented locally for some time is that
offered by Manager Boyd of Le Petit
Crystal this week in Latosia, the original "Happy Hooligan of the Wheel."
Latosia is a comedian of some skill—
a trick cyclist with few equals and no
superiors. His entire act is replete with
novelty and such sureness and finish of
execution that make the most difficult
items of the act seem to the audience

unicycle work. The Conners contribute
singing and nonsense in an up-to-date
sketch; Alf. P. James is to the fore

Price and Lysle contribute more singing

Divine Dodson, known as the "Duchess of Central Park," will begin a limited engagement next Monday evening
at the Savoy ,singing the latest success,
"The Girl With the Changeable Eyes."
The eccentric Clark Sisters, singing and
dancing comediennes, are still retained
at the Savoy. Monday witnesses the
initial appearance at the Savoy of Miss
Pearl Ashley, singing comedienne ;also
the first appearance of Miss Fiola Le
Page, serio-comic, in vocal selectionst
Smith and Ellis at the Savoy next
week will present another of their
unique sketches. Mr. Smith is an exceptionally good comedian of quiet droll
methods, while Miss Ellis is a charming woman, with a well cultivated voice,
that will be heard to advantage in several well chosen selections.
The Lyric on Broad street has been
presenting an unusually good show this
week with three or four additions to the
list of people. These include an excellent baritone, Mr. Lambert, and a pleasing balladist, Alice Windermere, in addition to the house favorite, Rose Perry,
who celebrated her twenty-first birthday this week with a pleasant little
gathering of intimate friends. The engagement has been continued by request
of the popular petite singer and dancer
Florence Patterson, who seems to hold
as well as win popularity wherever she
goes'. Other favorites of the house are
Mae B. Stanley, Flora St. Ives (the
musical artiste), and Mamie Perry,

It is expected that thc band of the
Fifth Regiment, which has reached the
last cities in its World's Fair tour,
will return home on Friday next, and
arrangements have been made for two
closing concerts in the Victoria Theatre
here on Friday and Saturday evenings,
in which the reorganized band, as it delighted hundreds of thousands at the
Canadian Building and at the great
Stadium, at the St. Louis Exposition,
will be heard. There has been a common false impression among people at
home that Bandmaster Finn proposed to
present the identical musicians whom
Victoria knew as making up thc band
of the Fifth, in his concerts at the great
fair. This would have been hardly consistent with the band leader's determination that tlie band should be a great
and harmonious advertisement of the
city. It is the same band—with many
additions of soloists whose names arc
famous among the musicians of Am-

"A Friend of the Family," which was
Wednesday's offering at the View street
playhouse, could not chortle over any
capacity business. The farce, which is
on thc traditional lines of confusion
worse confounded originally exploited
for the English stage in the immortal
"Comedy of Errors.' and worked over
in "The Wrong Mr. Wright," "What
Happened to Jones," and a score of
others, was last given here a year or
more ago, with Alice Johnson in the
strong part. It has improved with age,
for the new leading woman (Miss
Magrane)' fits the part even better
than did buxom Miss Johnson. The latter by the way forsook the stage to marry a nephew of the late Ben Butler. He
committed suicide in a fit of temporary insanity.

The Victoria District Football Association has decided with regard to Victoria West's claim to the intermediate
cup, that the cup had only been in corn-
competition twice, the competition during 1002 having been for a special cup
put up by the association and won by
the Capitals. The cup now being played
for must be won three times in succession, 1902 being a dead year. Victoria West won in 1901 and 1903; so if
they win this year they hold the trophy.

Military Matters.
The Fifth Regiment had a fair turnout on Thursday evening, Nos. I and 5
Companies making the best showing.
Col. aHll marched the Regiment up
Col. Hall marched the Regiment up
the Bugle Band—which latter is showing evident signs of being in the near
future one of the best Bugle Bands in
the Militia Force, tinder the careful
training of Sergt. Trumpeter Earle. The
men looked well and smart, and marched
in good time.
On their retaum to the Hall Col.
Hall addressed the Regiment, briefly
outlining the drill programme for the
coming season. He announced that the
new Dundonald Drill would be adopted
at once, and the first instruction therein
would be given at the Regimental School
of Instruction which opens on Wednesday next. It is anticipated that the
School will be largely attended in consequence.
This new drill is pronounced to be
good, but it is also said to contain some
brain rackers, but then that is nothing
strange as all good drill books contain
these, and occasional guessing must be
done. In any event the drill will certainly be found entertaining.
General Parsons, who is now in Victoria carried out his inspection of the
R. G. A's. at the Barracks on Thursday
last, and that of the Royal Engineers
on Friday morning. It is the intention
of the General to inspect the Fifth Regiment on Monday evening at 8 p. m. in
the Drill Hall, and a Regimental Parade
has consequently been ordered for that
time; although this is very short notice,
every member will be ordered to parade,
and it is hoped that there will be but
few empty spaces in the sections. Full
dress tunics, helmets, pouch and side-
arms is the order of the day.
