li itself so far outnumbering the
}ace that the emblems of that rule

|y sheer numerical superiority but
moral restraint imposed by re-
|ipon Britain's good faith.
The Loyal Sikhs
Iwhile every part of the Empire
Ihis reliance on British justice it
can never be forgotten that we are under
special obligations to our Hindu fellow-
subjects, and among them especially to the
Sikhs. This splendid race, once their
kingdom of the Punjaub was conquered
and attached to the Empire, cast all sedition aside, and became the most loyal
and puissant of the defenders of India.
Their Military Prowess
It was the Sikhs who fought in the
defence of British women and children
and of British hearths and homes under
John Nicholson and Lawrence, and it
was the loyalty and prowess of the Sikh
regiments which prolonged the memorable siege of Lucknow until relief came,
when
"Ever above the top-most tower
The banner of England flew."
Since the Mutiny there has been no
great British war in whicli a Sikh regiment has not distinguished itself. Their
colours tell of the Russo-Turkish war, the
war in the Soudan under Wolseley, the
memorable siege of Magdala under their
old commander Lord Napier of Magdala,
service in Somaliland against the Mad
Mullah, in China at the Taku and Boxer
rebellions, and in the expedition to
Thibet.
The Men Who Seek Redress
There are men now in the streets of
Victoria carrying medals which they
earned in the defence of Lucknow half a
century ago, and Dr. Sundar Singh's own
father fought at Magdala. This is the
scantiest review of the splendid service
whicii the Sikhs have rendered to the
Empire in the hour of need. Through
the warp and woof of its history runs the
thin red line of which Kinglake wrote
so eloquently but also the glittering thread,
which nothing can unweave, of those
splendidly caparisoned regiments raised
by the Sikhs and led by British Officers.
These are the men who are now asking
the Canadian Government to grant them
simple Britisli justice. The demand
must prevail because it is a just one, and
it should and will receive the support of
every British subject who realizes the debt
which the Empire owes to the petitioners,
and the duty which it owes to itself.

an attitude which constitute
ment of the most important functions of
a newspaper. It is doubtful whether they
will consider a plethora of dogmatic
editorial a fair substitute for "news," and
that is what the Colonist is now running
to. Under the experiment the paper has
in a few short months shrunk to half its
usual size and is still shrinking.
A LAME DEFENCE
The Colonist will not leave The Week
alone, but it fights with such feeble
weapons that there is no satisfaction in
laying it low. In an attempt to justify
its silence on the Navy robberies it writes
three-quarters of a column of drivel, and
winds up with a pathetic declaration that
the reason it is silent on the exploits of
criminals is that it does not wish to "injure" them. This is an admirable
maxim, and altogether creditable to the
heart of the proprietor of the Colonist,
but does that gentleman suppose that he
lias a corner on all the "milk of human
kindness" that the world contains, and
that no one else experiences a feeling of
compassion for people who get into
trouble? A man who is so blinded by
sympathy that he is unable to discern his
duty to the public should not own and
control a newspaper, which is supposed
to be the guardian of the public interest
and has splendid traditions which the
veriest tyro should be able to follow. Any
man who undertakes to improve on the
ethics of British journalism must have a
pretty goocl opinion of himself. Any man
who deliberately pursues a policy of suppressing important news items, of trimming liis news columns to suit his advertisers, and of ignoring' popular incidents
to serve the purpose of commercial corporations is prostituting the noblest uses of
journalism to serve ignominious ends.
The Week will be greatly surprised if the
subscribers to the Colonist do not resent
JOY-RIDERS
The police are keeping up the good
work of checking the ebullience of joyriders. They are for the first time directing special attention to the most dangerous type of automobilist, the clever chauffeur who really can handle his machine
well and handles it to elude the police.
The success of the latter has not been all
that one could desire, and as the Automobile Club has no jurisdiction ancl no
control over these long-haired, reckless
law-breakers the time has come for the
people to adopt the somewhat dangerous
course of taking the law into their own
hands. This is not a reflection on the
municipal police, but upon those persons
who are responsible for enforcing the law
in rural districts. Once outside the municipal boundaries, drivers of the type referred to throw caution to the winds, and,
knowing that there may be only one rural
policeman in a stretch of many miles, they
take possession of the road and hold it
against all comers. The writer, when
driving with his family this week, had the
narrowest possible escape near the Oak
Bay Golf Links. A big car containing
five men of the rowdy type came along
at a speed of at least forty miles an hour.
Although sighted at a long distance they
held to the middle of the road ancl the
writer was obliged to drive his horse and
buggy down a slope to allow the motorcar to pass. It was an outrage, but there
is no redress. It was impossible to read
the number of the car and equally impossible to invoke the aid of an officer.
In the Duncans district a Protective Association has been formed for the express
purpose of upsetting speeding motors,
whatever the consequences may be. This
Association has the heartiest sympathy of
The AVeek, and unless the authorities are
able to put down joy-riding in the outskirts of Victoria with a strong hand The
AVeek will undertake that similar organizations will be formed elsewhere.
the gold may be long delayed, and that
the sombre colours whicli darken and despoil the beauty of communal life in nearly all our large centres of population may
never dim the blue and gold of Victoria's
prosperity.
THE COUNTRY CLUB
As anticipated, the Arictoria Country
Club has furnished an excellent week's
racing and the Pari Mutuel machines
have had their first trial in Victoria, indeed in Canada. The result has been
entirely satisfactory, and the contention
that once these machines were known
they would prove popular has been more
than justified. Just at the start the public were a little shy, preferring to know
what odds they were getting when they
put their money up, but after the first
few races they found that the machines
gave a far better average than the book
and then tlieir patronage became general.
The machines are perfectly fair. One
might say that they are "mechanically"
fair because they cannot make a mistake.
All the money that goes in, less ten per
cent, commission for the Club, is divided
among the patrons. Tliere is no leakage
and no possibility of trickery work. With
respect to the races it need only be said
that they were on the square, that good
horses ran, that the meeting was well
managed and that something like fifteen
thousand people thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Whilst great credit is due to all
the directors and officials of the Club, Mr.
George A. Eraser deserves a special word
of praise for his unremitting and self-
sacrificing labours. He has proved himself to be a competent and popular manager, and it is to be hoped many similar
meetings will be held under his direction.
VICTORIA DAY CELEBRATION
It will be many a long year before
A7ictoria weakens in affection for the holiday which is named after the Goocl
Queen. Eor one reason Providence always seems to send fine weather for the
24th of May, but the truth is that Victorians have been accustomed for so long
to regard this holiday as their own "par
excellence" and on it to recall memories
of their beloved Queen, that no new
claimants for favour, however popular,
can oust the old love. Victoria was "en
fete" and assembled in larger numbers
than ever at Beacon Hill Park and on
the Gorge. "With Queen's weather perfect
enjoyment was possible, ancl the enjoyment took a most rational form. It was
the enjoyment of sheer content bubbling
over with evidences of deep-rooted happiness. Tliere was no horse-play and no
rowdyism; there were no signs of poverty;
there were no lookers-on outside the
charmed circle; no fringe; no submerged tenth; everybody bore the tokens
of prosperity, and everybody was on the
inside. AHewed in this aspect the celebration was unique; it could not have
been paralleled anywhere else in the
world and it will be the prayer of all well-
wishers of the goocl old city of Victoria
that the encroachment of the gray upon
CIVIC WORKS
This bright holiday week is hardly the
time to discuss any of the prosaic aspects
of civic work. Brief comment will
suffice. It must be directed to the prolonged agony of impassable streets, the
inexcusable dilatoriness of the AVestru-
mite Company on A'ancouver street, and
the almost criminal folly of the persons
responsible for the duplication of work
on Eort street. The progress made between Cook and Douglas is ridiculous
when one considers the length of time
already occupied. Tliere is lack of system and an insufficient force of men.
There will be general gratification at the
decision to go ahead with the work on
the Dallas Road sea-wall with improved
appliances. The fact of the matter is that
this job ought to have been completed by
now, and would have been if the manager
had realised all the engineering difficulties
with which he would have to contend.
He will know better next time and from
now on will do well to have a little less
respect for his own opinion, aud a little
more respect for the experience and authority of a Government engineer.
KNIGHTS OF THE GRIP
Arictoria was serenaded last week by
the "knights of the grip" who glory in the
official appellation of the United Commercial Travellers' Association. Together
with their wives and friends the visitors
aggi-cgated nearly a thousand, and not a
little difficulty was experienced in finding
hotel accomodation. Much praise is due
the local committee which secured the
visit of this important business organization, ancl it is not too much to hope that
tlieir better acquaintance with the Capital City will result in increased business
and travel. It is certain that no body of
men are in a better position to give Victoria a genuine boost. THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, MAY 27, 1911
Another May 24th has come and
gone, and before Victoria Day comes
round to greet us once more I should
like to ask if it is really necessary
that the men ancl women who work
* in stores should be compelled to buy
their holiday by working overtime the
night before. Surely the public does
not really require those extra hours
for shopping on the evening of the
23rd just because the 24th is a whole
holiday. Or are the stores kept open
merely for the sake of enticing our
visitors to spend their money? Hardly this, I think, because the average
visitor stays in an hotel and does
not have to burden his or her mind
with such details as tomorrow's dinner or the amount of sugar in the
store-room. I felt sorry for every
one of the clerks who had to work
on Tuesday night last. Here we had
three bands promenading the city,
merry crowds in the streets and all
the proper appendages to a holiday,
but to my mind everything spoilt by
the fact that so many were kept working late. It struck me as being rather
a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul.
In matters of this nature the public
have the remedy in their own hands;
the stores are kept open to oblige
them and if they would all do their
shopping at a reasonable time everyone would be much happier. Think it
over and next year let the store assistants have every bit as much holiday as every other working man or
woman.
* *   *
I was not present in person to see
the fireworks at Beacon Hill Park
on Wednesday night, but so far,
everyone who has mentioned them to
me has used the same word to describe them. "Rotten" is heard on
all sides and much indignation has
been expressed that so many people
should have been brought from all
over town to see good money wasted
on a "punk" show. I am told that
the picture of the King, which by
time-honoured custom is shown at
the end of a performance whilst the
band plays the National Anthem,
appeared right in the middle of the
evening when the band was in a distant part of the park, and as half the
people did not realise that it was the
King at whom they were looking
there was none of the correct and
natural ebullition of loyalty with
which fireworks on a patriotic festival
usually conclude. It is a thousand
pities that so many should have been
allowed to leave the park with such
feelings of disappointment.
* *   *
Some time ago I wrote about the
untidy state of the Post-office and recommended that the postal authorities supply waste-paper baskets for
the convenience of those people who
open their mail in public and throw
away the envelopes and the notices
of unpaid accounts which the former
usually contain. The idea seems to
have been a good one in the eyes
of the said authorities for I see that
there arc three gigantic waste-paper
baskets, carefully branded with the
sign manual of the Dominion Government and placed in conspicuous
positions. But it would appear that
they do not appeal to the public. It
is true that there is no sign-board
attached stating for what purpose
they are to be used, but I should have
thought, and apparently the Dominion Government thought, that this
would have been sufficiently obvious.
As it is not, I would suggest that
placards bc stuck up urging the
thoughtless proletariat to throw waste
paper in the receptacles provided. It
is no good in this world ever supposing that the other fellow is possessed of common-sense. He seldom
is, and in the cases of the rare exceptions hc is cursed with just sufficient natural "cusscdncss" to offset
any advantages the common-sense
might afford.
I have not seen it with my own
eyes but I am told on the very best
authority that the flag at Beacon
Hill is frequently hoisted half-mast
when there is no call for such a proceeding. I understand that a flag is
at half-mast when it flies just its own
width from the top of the flag-staff.
Possibly the person responsible for
the flag at Beacon Hill is under the
impression that the term half-mast
is to be taken literally, and that as
long as the flag is somewhere near
the top it is properly hoisted. I
mention this because it would be
rather a "faux pas" if such a mistake
were to occur on Coronation Day.
But more unlikely things have happened.
It seems to me to be rather poor
sort of advertising to direct people
desirous of information to an address
where no such information can be
obtained, but that is what is being
done down at the Outer Wharf every
day at present. Travellers disembarking at this end of town are confronted by a huge notice telling them
to call at the office of the Tourist
Association on Fort Street for all
information with regard to Victoria.
Of course we who live here know
that the Tourist Association has now
been merged in the Vancouver Island
Development League with offices on
Broughton Street, but how is the unwary traveller to know* it? I have
often wondered what sort of people
they are who take notice of these
advertisements and what sort of information it is they want. One thing
is sure, however, and that is that they
will never get it as long as they confine their enquiries to the address
posted up at the Outer Wharf. Somebody ought to get busy and make
an alteration in the notice.
* *   *
In these days of advanced education
when everything is taught except the
simplest things, which are supposed
to be natural assets in every pupil,
I think it would be a good idea to
have daily instruction in street rules
and regulations. Spelling and punctuation have gone by the board, if one
may judge by the samples daily seen
in the press of the country and in the
letters which are a necessary evil in
a newspaper office; their place has
been presumably filled by lessons in
Art and Literature. I would suggest
that a portion of the time spent in
teaching grimy fingers to draw
straight lines be devoted to teaching
Tommy that foot passengers walk on
the right-hand side of the road but
that vehicles travel on the left. This
is a time-honoured subject in these
columns, but constant reiteration does
the heart good and sometimes has
been known to be productive of results. If such a course were followed
in a few years we should have a
generation of young men and women
who would know on which side of
the street or sidewalk to keep.

Recently a man was fined a small
sum for looking on at a gambling
game. Would he have been fined
more or less if he had been an active
participator in the game, and how big
an interest would he have had to own
in the business not to be fined at all?
This problem has been propounded
to me on several occasions lately, but
as I never was any good as a mathematician 1 leave the solution of it to
my readers. I am inclined to think
that until a mathematician arises out
of the West with a series of problems
founded on Western moral statistics,
the problem will have to be taken
out of the realm of pure mathematics
ancl consigned to the limbo of those
things which arc best left unexplained, or—perhaps better still—un-
attempted.

urday at thc Willows one may safely
judge that their installation has been
a success. I don't profess to like
them, as 1 plead guilty to an affection for the big check waistcoats, the
gaudy umbrellas and the general
paraphernalia of the typical bookmaker. Besides, there is an added
element of excitement in a modest
gamble if you are not quite sure
whether your man of business will
prove a welcher or not. Moreover,
I like to know what odds I am getting before placing my bet. Still, half
a gamble is better than no bet, and
though I never manage to register a
win I agree with the Elizabethan poet
and feel
""Tis better to have plunged and lost
Than never to have plunged at all."

Of all the decorations indulged in
by private individuals on Victoria Day
I was most struck by those displayed
in the window of Moore & Johnston,
Real Estate Agents, at the corner of
Yates and Broad streets. The background was the Union Jack, which
was flanked by the Canadian and Australian flags. In the foreground were
coloured shields showing in contour
the various great over-seas possessions, the colour scheme of red, blue
and white being admirably preserved.
The net result was most unique ancl
original.

I notice on Beacon Hill that a large
area between Haywood Avenue and
the lake is under the plough. Exactly
what is going to be done is beyond
my ken, but I sincerely trust that no
attempt will be made to lay it out
in formal plots and terraces. More
than half the beauty of Beacon Hill
Park lies in the fact that so much
is left to nature and so little muddled
by Art. The Hill is at its best now
with great masses of broom flowering
all over it; it has never been spoiled
by cheap amusement booths and its
popularity has largely depended on
its simplicity. In this view of the
Park there are many who agree with

J play, if it had been differently
lted it might have been worthy
licism, for Maurice Maeterlinck
is both a poet and a philosopher. It
is called a "miracle" play, but I doubt
if under any circumstances it is suitable for the stage. It is too difficult
to secure the right type of players,
and I do not think the general public
could follow the philosophy which
Maeterlinck was trying to suggest
i rather than expound. I think, however, the greatest objection is that
| the central idea is too obviously a
; plagiarism from a far better produc-
I tion, Longfellow's "Golden Legend."
1 In that beautiful work the theme of
the story of the Monk, Felix, is practically the same as that of Sister
Beatrice. In any event I have not
read Maeterlinck's play, and it is impossible to judge of its possibilities
from such a performance as was given
by Miss Nethersole and her colleagues. I wish to add one more pro- j
test against the degeneracy which is
only too apparent in most of the
plays, and especially in the playing,
purveyed to Victorians by the Ameri
can Syndicate which has absolute control of our theatrical entertainments,
and I enter this protest with the
greater regret when I think that an
English-born   actress   of   undoubted
7 !
showed himself to be a thorough artist, over-looking no detail to perfect
his part. The Indian woman was
well played by Marion Colvin and
Miss Ellen Barham, the star, was entirely satisfactory as Necia. Altogether the play is "worth while"; it
has its weak spots and it drags a
little, but it is at least equal to "The
Squaw-Man" ancl "The Great Divide";
it has no objectionable features, if
one appreciates its melo-dramatic aspects, ancl it at least possesses the
merit of up-to-dateness. I shall be
surprised if it does not prove to be a
great financial success.
The New Grand
With the exception of the turn
contributed by "Nello," the marvellous juggler and balancer, the weekly
bill at the New Grand this week has
not been up to the general standard.
"Nello's turn is all that it claims to
be and is in itself worth the price of
admission. Of the other features to
my mind the best was the laughable
absurdity put on by Spiegel & Dunn
who are burnt cork artists of considerable merit. Mann & Franks have
been taking up a considerable amount
of  time with  their  turn  which  con-

ability should have lent herself to
such an unseemly production.
The Barrier
On Wednesday night "The Barrier,"
a dramatized version of Rex Beach's
well-known novel, was presented at
the Victoria Theatre by a strong, all-
round company. It is not the type
of play for which I care very much,
although it has some redeeming features. If it could have been compressed into three acts and if the
ridiculous duel in the dark, at which
the audience very properly laughed,
could have been eliminated the play
would have furnished a good two
hours' entertainment. Its chief merit
lies in thc opportunity which it affords for character acting in portraying a number of types which could
no doubt have been found in Alaska
at the time when Beach wrote his
book. For instance, the part of John
Dale was admirably portrayed by William Chapman, whilst George Cleveland as Poleon Doret, George Zucco
as Dan Stark, H. P. Byron as Run-
nion and William G. Colvin as No-
Creek-Lee were just as good as anyone  could   ask  for.    Indeed,  Colvin
tains only one piece "worth while,"
and that is the mock melodrama.
Lang & Cotton use a playlet entitled
"Managerial Troubles" as the background for some imitations which are
not particularly attractive. Mort Fox
styles himself an Hebraic Humourist.
He is equally far from being either
Hebraic or a Humourist. Consistent
attendances at the New Grand lead
me to believe that the Dago impersonations are beginning to oust both
the Dutch ancl Hebraic comedians
from the stage.
The Majestic Theatre
One is inclined to regard all boat-
racing from the standpoint of eight-,
four- or two-oared boats, but a night
at the Majestic during thc early part
of the week showed that there is
other boat-racing every bit as exciting. The sport is extensively indulged in on the Mekong River in
China where the natives man their
boats with an inconceivable number
of oarsmen and manage to travel at
the almost incredible speed of twelve
miles an hour. The ubiquitous firm
of Pathc Frcres havc been on the
spot and  Manager Christie was  for-

Castles in
the flir
BY BOHEMIAN
What would childhood be without
the divine gift of imagination which
peoples the glens with fairies, the
forests with giants and ogres and
the whole world with fair ladies and
gallant knights, one of whom we aspire to be in the far-off days when
we also shall be "grown-up"? Never
were two more fascinating books
penned on the subject of children
and children's ideas than the two
which have immortalized the name
of Kenneth Graham. "Dream Days"
and "In the Golden Age" are
books suitable for every age of man
and woman.
Who can fail to sympathise with
the   woes   of   childhood   or   refrain
from indignation  at the  callous  indifference of "The Olympians" as the
"grown-ups"   are   styled,   when   the
point of view is changed to that of
the little one labouring under a sense
of injustice whether real or fancied?
Read   the   chapter   in   which   the
leader  of the  children,  his  soul  in
agony     through     misunderstanding,
goes  forth to seek  what  solace  he
can in the green fields, where he can
at  least unburden his  heart to the
birds and beasts and contemplate the
vengeance which he will take in the
future.   He vows at first that he will
take refuge in the Church and then,
when it is all too late, he will forgive
his   erring   relatives   and   stretching
out an emaciated hand give them his
blessing  uttered   with   lips   that  are
pallid from prolonged fasting.
Or again, he will be a man of war
and at the head of victorious troops
ride triumphant through a cringing
throng, conspicuous in which will be
the ones who now are treating him
with so much contumely. And then
what gratified revenge; how he will
make them writhe with his condescension and how slowly will he yield
to their imploring voices! And in
the gratification of his imaginings
his spirit loses its bitterness and he
is brought back to things material
by a clod of earth hurled by a malicious butcher-boy, which, striking
him on the nose, causes him to forget all his griefs in the joy of present conflict.
As soon as man is born and his
brain begins to fashion fancies he
becomes a builder of castles in the
air. What matters it how fantastic
they may be? There is often to be
found the natural bent of the future
man in the baby architect. Did not
the poet Hogg spend his leisure
hours as a shepherd boy scratching
verses on the rough stones around
which his flocks were feeding, whilst
he dreamed of the future that was to
make him famous? What were the
visions of Jeanne d'Arc but castles
fashioned before her eyes of faith by
the contemplation of her country's
wrongs? The stories of the early
days of poets, painters and musicians
all show the striving towards the
goal which their imagination had depicted.
But though the tendency nowadays
is to laugh at the preposterous fancies of childhood and to regard the
material as the only thing in life
worth thinking about, human nature
is still unable to dispense with those
dreams of the future which we call
"castles in the air."
The budding office boy when first
he sweeps the floor on the threshold
of his career pictures to himself the
time when he will own an office with
a door marked "Private" and be lord
and master of a bevy of attentive
clerks. And when that aim is accomplished he looks still further
ahead and dreams of the time when
his citizens shall regard him as their
leading man whom they can trust
to represent them.
Or maybe his tastes are different
and he closes his eyes to picture the
quiet country home where his last
days may be spent in peace and quietude "far from the madding crowd."
'midst his books and flowers. But
look forward he must, for no man
can be sure that his present state
will continue to his life's end. And
he who does not build his castles to
look fairer than those which he now
inhabits will find himself on the
downward path which has its ending in the Slough of Despair.
Ambition is the salt of life. There
is such a thing as too much ambition as Wolsey knew, having found
out too late that through this the
angels fell, but no man can live a
useful life, one full of achievements
unless he is ambitious. No nation
can grow to maturity and be of good
in the world unless it be inspired with
the germs of ambition properly nurtured to bring forth the fruits of success. No religion can flourish which
does not prove itself by its ambition
to produce converts, and love itself,
that quality without which the world
is naught, would fade away were it
not for the castles in the air which
every lover erects in the rosy cloud-
lands of his first enthralment.
Never before have we Britons had
such opportunity for dreaming our
dreams and building our castles. In
this year of all years when the pageantry in London will be such as
the world has seldom seen, when the
full conception of Empire will dawn
before material eyes in a manner
never before contemplated, when
statesmen from every corner of the
earth bound by the ties of kindred
blood and loyalty will meet to do
honour to the central head, it is possible to imagine a future for the Em
pire the like of which has never been
conceived.
But is it our part merely to dream
dreams and build castles and then
to cry "enough"? Other nations
have risen to pinnacles of power
from which they thought they never
could be hurled. History abounds in
instances of this nature where success and pride and above all self-
satisfaction have produced self-indulgence, indifference and destruction.
Our part it is to see to it that the
foundations of our castles are laid on
the rock of preparedness, lest whilst
prating of loyalty and swelling with
the conceit of the future we find that
after all our castles were built in the
unstable air.
MERRIE ENGLAND
A May-Day Picture
"I never hope to see country more
beautiful than England has been dur
ing the past ten days. The long
spell of dry, hot weather that came
so suddenly on us a fortnight ago
was worthy of July| Fires ceased to
burn in our grates, and even the most
timid, perforce, had to leave off their
overcoats, at least during the middle
of the day. The brilliant sunshine
has started all nature into growth,
and yet withal there is a freshness
in the air, a newness of the green
that only the English spring can
give. The bigger trees, the oaks, the
elms, and the sycamores, have not
yet shown their leaves, but are now
in the earliest bud. The gorse on
every common has become golden,
and the country lanes are a mass of
giant primroses. I have never seen
the primroses better than now.
People are already flocking to seaside
towns. I was at Brighton on Saturday and the beach and sea front
there were crowded with visitors.
The English spring is seen at its best

The property of the Steamboat Wonder Gold Mines, Ltd., lies a few hundred feet north of the famous GreenwaltJ
and Stevens property, and comprises three claims situated in the Yale Mining District of British Columbia. About 35J
miles east of the town of Hope, on Steamboat Mountain.
The first issue of 200,000 shares of treasury stock are now offered for sale through the Pacific Securities CompanyJ
for the purpose of carrying on extensive development work.
According to the annual report of the Minister of Mines of the Province of British Columbia for the year
December 31st, 1909, the value of the mineral output for British Columbia was $24,443^25, and of this amount $7,728,256
was produced by the Yale Mining District, in which this property is located.   It is the belief of many prominent engineers!
that the Steamboat Mountain District in a short length of time will produce more gold than any other district in British|
Columbia.

The officers and directors of this company are experienced mining and business men, who have the greatest confi-|
dence in this property, and expect to push the development work as rapidly as the weather will permit.

HAPPY SETTLERS IN KOOTENAY
|VIr. J. A. Tormey, who lectured to parties interested in Canada
■ig the winter season in the Old Country, and who was in
je of a party of English settlers to the Baynes Lake district,
lng England March 4 last, has forwarded to the Old Country
Imber of letters from some of these emigrants. An extract of
If them reads as follows:—"Our car of English settlers reached
les Saturday morning about 9 o'clock. We were handled in
piost satisfactory manner from Portland, Me., via Chicago,
|e end of our journey. The Grand Trunk and Great Northern
won the heart of this party, and 1 have no doubt that the
of March 24 will be equally pleased with the route.   It may
est you also to know that our people are delighted with our

FOURTH GENERAL MEETING
The fourth ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of
|Vestern Canada Land Company, Ltd., was held on Monday,
24, at Salisbury House, London Wall, E.C., Major-General
lonald B. Lane, K.C.V.O., C.B., presiding.
hie Secretary (Mr. William J. Challis, F.C.I.S.) having read

that you may consider them satisfactory. To commence
I propose to run through one or two items in the balance-

ar amount. This issue of Debenture stock and options, you
l-emember, was made last April, and I am glad to say was a

writing off all expenses for the issue of the Debentures we
Ihave a substantial balance left on our premium account,
|nting to £26,882. On the other side, your property stands
jcost price of £380,700, which represents the original price
lur land, namely, £1 is. 8y2d. per acre on 350,841 acres. Our
"ests in the Pembina Coal Company, Ltd., are also taken at
lost, and represent £114,000 actually paid, and a liability for
ler calls, amounting to £60,000, all of which cash will be
lted in the development of that property. Under the heading
Indry debtors in Canada there appears the somewhat large
of £165,000 odd, but this, as you are no doubt aware,
Isents instalments on lands already sold, and is amply secured
le land itself, as we do not give title until the final instalments
laid. Meanwhile we receive interest at an average rate of 6
lent, per annum. Our experimental farm stands at £3,000, and
II think, represents very good value, as it has attracted a good

of our land. This farm is established near a station on the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, about forty miles west of Edmonton.
Cash at our bankers and in hand amounts to £200,500, from
which the shareholders will realise that the company is in an
exceptionally strong position. (Hear, hear.)
The Year's Profit
Turning to the profit and loss account, I think that the details
are so clearly set out that they speak for themselves without
further explanation from me, although later on I shall be pleased
to answer any questions pertaining to any item that shareholders
might like explained. The principal and, to my mind, the most
attractive point is the fact that the result of the past year's trading
shows a balance applicable to profit of £50,000, which, together
with £7,000 brought forward, gives, to be exact, £56,896 available
for distribution. As you will have seen from the directors' report,
we recommend the payment of a dividend of 5 per cent. (is. per
share), free of income-tax, for the year ended December 31 last,
and, subject to your confirmation, the dividend warrants will be
posted on Wednesday night. Possibly some of the shareholders
may think that, with this amount at our disposal, we might have
been expected to make a larger distribution than 5 per cent.,
which will only call for £23,250, but I think you will agree that

now we have again entered the dividend-paying list, it is better
to adopt a conservative policy, and have a substantial reserve in
hand to provide for future years. I think, therefore, the wisest
course is to carry forward an amount equal to another year's
dividend.
A motion to this effect having been put to the meeting it was
unanimously carried.
BRITISH CAPITAL IN CANADA
In a little more than six years, January, 1905, to April, 1911,
Great Britain has loaned Canada at least $890,805,626. These
figures are the best possible reply to the complaint sometimes
heard that Great Britain is not taking sufficient financial interest
in Canada. Its entire railroad system, for instance, has been
financed practically from first to last by the British investor. The
following table gives the approximate division of the past six years'
investments:—
Canadian bank shares purchased by individual shareholders   $   1,125,000
Investments with loan and mortgage companies        8,725,000
Canadian bank shares purchased by a London house,
(public flotation of £100,000 omitted)   550,000
British insurance companies' investments        9,854,000

Total $890,805,626
Mr. George Paish, the eminent London financial statistician,
states that British capital has been invested in Canada to the
extent of £372,000,000. It is practically impossible to check this
sum, but it is safe to accept the estimate of Mr. Paish, who not
long since lectured on the advantage to borrowing countries of
importing capital. The young country, he says, requires to do all
those things which in older countries have been gradually performed through the centuries, and it desires to do those things
quickly. The rapidity with which things move in a young country
is so astonishing to those accustomed to the slower progress of
the older countries that it is difficult for the two kinds of countries
to understand each other. Persons living in the older countries
cannot and do not believe that the growth in the young countries
is as rapid as it is said to be.
BIG INCREASE IN FLOTATIONS
The following table shows the remarkable increase in Canada's
public flotations in the London market in the period under review:
Year. Amount.
1905  £13.530.287
1906       6,477,500
1907   11,203,711
1908   29,354,721
1909   37>4",723
1910   38,453.8o8
*I9"  *  13,945,997
£150,377,747
♦Four months!
The aggregate Canadian public issues overseas for the first
four years, 1905 to 1908, was £60,566,219, and for the next two
years, 1909 and 1910, £75,865,531. So that in the past two years
we have obtained £15,299,312 in excess of the sum raised during
the previous four years. In 1910 we borrowed in London almost
three times as much as in 1905. In the first four months of 1911,
Canada's loans in Great Britain were considerably more than
one-third of the previous year's total.
B. C. INVESTMENTS REGARDED FAVOURABLY
Canadian investments were never regarded more favourably in
Great Britain, is the report of Mr. A. D. McRae, a British
Columbia financier, who has returned from a business trip to the
Old Country. Mr. McRae is known for his connection with the
Canadian North Pacific Fisheries, Limited, whicii he promoted, and
as vice-president of the Canadian Western Lumber Company,
which is interested in this province. He is also associated with
Colonel Davidson, Sir William Mackenzie and Sir Donald Mann in
numerous other enterprises. One of his flotations while in Great
Britain was the debenture issue of $3,000,000 of the Columbia
River Lumber Company at Golden, which has been absorbed by
the Canadian Western Lumber Company. Mr. McRae says that
particular interest is taken in the Canadian West and its great
resources, as was evidenced by the prolonged stay of Sir Edward
Tennant and party which probably represented more solid investment capital than any other group of capitalists that ever came
to this country. Not only are present conditions good for Canadian
enterprises in the London market, but for many years there will
be available funds for legitimate propositions. There was some
criticism about certain timber flotations because the promoters

A BRIGHT PICTURE
Western Canada presents a striking picture today.   The snow,
ler having done its duty to the soil, disappeared rapidly.   One
rly morning this spring the Western farmer awoke, his eyes
[ning to the clear, blue sky and his thoughts to the plow.   The
k, black soil of the West was turned early.   Summer came
lost before it was realized that spring was visiting.   Seeding
I practically been completed and crop prophets are already pre-
ling their schedule of scares and pleasant surprises.   Cereal
pisticians have dusted their adding machines and got mental
|iring apparatus into shape for juggling with millions of bushels
acres. Collections are good, factories are working full time,
|k clearings are satisfactory, building statistics are increasing,
population and new capital are coming into the country as
ckly as is desirable. Things in the West are humming. It is
tright picture of Western Canada which the industrial and
fcultural pioneers of that country have painted for nineteen
Idred and eleven. May their good business sense keep enthu-
|m within its proper limits.
THE GUGGENHEIMS AGAIN
I The Guggenheims have taken over the holdings of the National
It Company, of Toronto, in the Yukon, the deal being one of
[largest in the history of the North. These include, besides
[r creeks, the oldest and richest portion of Gold Rum Creek,
lof the banner streams of the Klondike. The consideration is
td to be over half a million dollars. For years the property

pany organized by Treadgold. One or two other large comas may break into this field, and with proper facilities,
liring much capital, good returns can be secured.
BANKS AND CUSTOMERS' ACCOUNTS
There is a serious aspect of the Oliver incident whicii has not
Ived due attention, and is the relation of a bank to its customers
pn turn to curiosity mongers. A photograph is said to have
taken of a certain bank's ledger page showing part of Mr.
Ir's bank account. If that photograph had really been
Ined it would reflect little credit upon the institution guarding
Recount. The photograph was apparently faked in a clever
lugh clumsy manner. So far as we can learn, a minor official
Ie bank which had Mr. Oliver's account, was approached by
Itain gentleman whom we need not name, with an offer of a
lantial cash payment and a remunerative and permanent posi-
lelsewhere. The bank official, whose method of address is
Ily of the best, was so astounded at the request, that his reply
■be recorded as a matter of history.   The suppliant was told
lo to h ."
[he branch bank manager was informed as to what was hap-
In the meantime by some, up to the present, inexplicable
er certain items of Mr. Oliver's account had been seen, noted,
apparently copied upon ledger paper, then photographed.
■/as the photograph which Mr. D. R. Wilkie, general man-
\i the Imperial Bank, stated in the most emphatic terms was
exact photograph of Mr. Oliver's account, as had been
A comparison of the original with the spurious at once
Is this fact.
[n investigation is to be held respecting the Oliver charges,
ne desires that it shall be limited, except that it shall not
lito private affairs. It is not difficult to draw the line
len a man's business and his private matters. Undoubtedly
[will be an attempt to bring Mr. Oliver's bank account into
rielight, to analyse it, trace the source and the destination
try debit and credit item, and generally to make public a
[lent which concerns only the bank and its customer. This
be a dangerous precedent. The office boy, the business
[the industrial corporation all consider their bank account a
of the strictest privacy. Were it to become known that
slightest show of caprice, envy or spitefulness on the part
[mies, one's bank account might be exposed to public gaze,
]iole country would soon be banking their money in stockings,
and mattresses. Only when a man is absolutely proved
criminal should his bank account be shown to others than
Uk officials and their customers. Even then, the greatest
[tion should be observed. It is not a question as to whether
a man's account is clean. Those who have the most honest
jits would be among the strongest objectors to publicity of
sank account figures.

Why is raihvay after railway built? The answer is soon given.
The Canadian prairies have established a convincing record in the
matter of grain production, and the messages contented farmers
have been sending back to their friends in the old homes have
published widely the story of Canadian prosperity. The settler of
today has no longer the pioneer's fear of untoward conditions.
Hardships there may be, but they are nothing to what the old
timers overcome. New railways are blazing over trails for settlement, and what they mean to the settler can only be understood
by those who knew the country before the railways had traversed
the prairies as they do today.
The railway mileage of Canada in 1910 was 24,731 miles,
representing an increase for 10 years of 6,591 miles; railways under
construction 4,500 miles, including the Grand Trunk Pacific and
the National Transcontinental; capital invested £283,000,000 sterling, an increase over last year of £20,400,000, or an increase in 10
years of £120,000,000. The number of passengers carried in 1910
was 35,894,570; tons of freight carried 74,482,866, an increase in 10
years of 37,483,495 tons, or 101 per cent.; railway employees numbered 140,477, with a total annual pay-roll of £14,800,000. Railway
construction is being carried on so extensively that it is estimated
400,000 to 500,000 tons of steel rails will be needed each year for
the next four or five years.
HEAVY LOANS FOR RAILWAYS
That Canada owes a large debt for its growth in railroad
facilities is seen in the fact that in little more than six years it has
obtained £59,000,000 for that purpose. Government loans have
been nearly as heavy with a total of £44,000,000, while industrial
flotations are third with £14,000,000. Municipal borrowing has
also been heavy, the aggregate being £12,000,000. Mining, land
and lumber and financial classes together aggregate less than half
the sum represented by federal and provincial government loans
and about one-third of the railroad total. The smallest British
investments are in the land, lumber, mining and financial securities.
Most of the Dominion's financing is done in Great Britain, in
one case, late in 1909, while Kansas City financiers were backing
a new railroad for Alberta, their money was obtained by means of
a public flotation in London.
BIG EXPENDITURE FOR G. T. R.
The Grand Trunk Railway proposes to spend between nine and
ten million dollars for the improvement of its terminal facilities in
Montreal. The plans have now been laid before the Railway Commission. They embrace the elevation of the tracks between Bonaventure station and Turcot yards, and from St. Henri to the Point
St. Charles yards. The work as contemplated also includes the
erection of new freight and passenger terminals at Bonaventure.
A BONUS GRANTED
The Cape Breton County Council, Sydney, N.S., has granted
the new Mono Railway Company recently incorporated as the
Sydney East Bay and New Waterford Mono Rail Company,
Limited, a bonus of one thousand dollars a mile and exemption
from taxes for five years.
IMPERIAL  TELEGRAPHS
In the British House of Commons the other day, Sir Gilbert
Parker asked the Postmaster General: "Has control of the Anglo-
American and Direct United States cable companies passed exclusively to American financiers? If so, will the Government prevent cabling to America from being entirely dependent oh an
American combine?"
Postmaster-General Samuel replied: "Negotiations are being
completed, whereby the control of the Anglo-American Company's
business will pass to the Western Union. I am not aware that
the Direct United States Company is included in the arrangement.
"The new deal will not make communication between Great
Britain and America entirely dependent upon the American combine. It is certain that this Government will control the rates for
British protection."
Under the agreement between the cable companies, the
Western Union will guarantee 3^ per cent, on the ordinary stock,
and 1 J/2 per cent, on the deferred stock of the Anglo-American
Company. In 1910, the ordinary stock paid 3^, and the deferred
Ij4 per cent. There have been $2,675,007 of ordinary, and $15,-
812,496 of deferred stock issued. The Anglo-American Cable
Company will remain under British ownership.
IMMIGRATION—FIFTY-FOUR PER CENT.-INCREASE
For the eleven months, April to February of the current fiscal
year, the number of immigrants who arrived in Canada was
271,392, as compared with 175,729 during the corresponding months
of the last fiscal year—a gain of 54 per cent. The number who
arrived via ocean ports for the same period was 164,486; against
89,241 for a like period of last fiscal year—an increase of 84 per
cent. From the United States for eleven months there were
106,906 immigrant arrivals, as against 86,488 during the corresponding eleven months of the last fiscal year—a net gain of 24
per cent.

BOOK NOTES
To any reader who really enjoys
an amusing book without any pretence of retailing the probabilities of
life "Thc Gift-Wife" should appeal.
This charming tale, which in part recalls tlie work of the inimitable An-
stey, is woven around thc misfortunes of a "periodical" as hc styles
himself. The hero, Dr. David Jebb,
is the victim of alcoholic bouts which
seize upon him with the regularity
of clock-work and invariably leave
him in strange places, penniless and
without thc slightest recollection of
thc past fortnight. His adventures
after one of his seizures in Central
Europe form thc subject matter of
one of the most genuinely humorous
books of thc season.

lUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 3)
Ictorians and visitors have been
poping to the popular Broad street
|use.
The Romano's Theatre
am   constantly   being   delighted
Jth Miss England's singing at Ro-
|mo's.   This week she has been giv-
a most sympathetic rendering of
png Me to Sleep."   I suppose the
ustrated Song does appeal to a cer-
class of Moving-Picture House
Jrons,   otherwise   managers   would
continue to run them, but I for
am always relieved when I can
[ir a good song well sung without
foolish and often quite unsuitable
|strations which usually accompany
singer on the screen.   "The Con-
It" was  a  strong drama  revealed
J Monday and Tuesday, but I was
|re   particularly   pleased   with   a
[lie rendering of that well-known
song   "Dumb,   Dumb,    Dumb,"
ere  the   luckless   swain   who   has
jrried  a  dumb  wife  foolishly  has
operated  on and  ever  after re-
Its his kindness.
The Yankee Girl
■handle Ring, who has the univer-
Iregard of all theatre goers, for
1 excellent work, as the stellar at-
Ition in many of the recent musi-
1 comedy successes, will visit us
Iday, May 29, at the Victoria
Jatre in a vehicle that has found
|ur in all the larger cities, "The
kee Girl."
larting last summer in New York,
lhe Herald Square Theatre, it
led at once into popular favour,
J instead of diminishing receipts,
■ last week of the sixth month,
attractions  have been  bought
only found it in the height of its
popularity, and beyond the perad-
venture of a doubt the "Yankee Girl"
could have run an entire year, could
off.
Miss Ring has a personality so
marked, and so delightful in its phases
that every one warms to her the
instant she comes upon the stage. She
has a charm, and an individuality, so
refreshing, and so piquant, that no one
can help but feel it, the minute they
get within the radius of her voice.
"Magda"
Hermann Sudermann's well known
drama "Magda" has earned an enviable reputation for itself, and has
already been played in almost every
large city on the American continent.
It has, however, never before been
presented at popular prices on the
Pacific Coast. "Magda" was translated from the German "Heimat."
Ey his masterly handling of an episode of German family life, Herr
Sudermann laid, many years ago, the
foundation of a world-wide reputation. With the possible exception of
Robertson's "Caste," which, after all
hardly comes within the same category, "Magda" represents about the
first serious attempt by a European
dramatist to deal wjth the ever-present sex problem in its relations to
the everyday life of an ordinary
middle class family, complicated as it
is by that intellectual revolt of
modern womanhood, to which Ibsen,
Shaw and Maeterlinck have given a
perhaps  exaggerated expression.
"Magda" will be presented by the
Allen Players on Tuesday next and
on Thursday and Saturday they will
play "The House of a Thousand
Candles," from the novel by Meredith Nicholson.
Sothern-Marlowe Subscriptions
The appearance of Sothern and
Marlowe in "Romeo & Juliet" at the
Victoria Theatre, June 12, has attracted so much attention on the part
of the public and such a large advance sale is predicted that the man
agement has decided to open a sale
of subscriptions at once. This has
been done at Mr. Sothern's request,
who wished to save theatregoers the
necessity of standing in line. Subscriptions may be made at the box
office of the theatre, where full information as to prices of seats will be
given. Tickets can then be secured
at once. This should meet with the
general satisfaction of the public, who
wish to be assured of good seats in
advance of the opening of the sale.
Coming With Chevalier
After considerable negotiation,
Frederic Shipman has secured Edna
Blanche Showalter, the American soprano, for the Albert Chevalier tour
of Western Canada. Miss Showalter
is only twenty-two, but she has already been acclaimed by musical critics as the "Melba of To-morrow."
Her rise has been remarkably rapid,
for a few years ago she was absolutely unknown to the musical world.
How one opportunity leads to another is exemplified in Miss Showal-
ter's career. Her first opportunity
came when she was engaged for the
Grand Opera "Paolette," produced at
Cincinnati under the auspices of the
Ohio Valley Exposition. Miss Showalter alternated the leading role
with Mme. de Pasquali of the Metropolitan Opera and scored instant and
complete success. Walter Damrosch,
the great conductor, heard her and
immediately engaged her as soloist
with the Damrosch Orchestra for its
1910-11 tour. Henry W. Savage, the
far-seeing impresario, in search of a
prima donna to sing the leading role
in his English production of Puccini's
"Girl of the Golden West," heard
Miss Showalter's exquisite voice and
declaring her to be the ideal "Minnie"
has secured her as prima donna for
what will easily be one of the biggest
events of next season—the first English production of the opera, the "Girl
of the Golden West."

Safer Boats Wanted
Victoria, May llth, 1911.
Editor Week:
Sir,—-Could you find space in your
valuable paper for enclosed clipping
from the Nanaimo Free Press of
May llth. We, who have travelled
on this coffin, know from experience
her danger, and she was lucky to
have a careful mariner like Capt.
Brown in command or she would
have been in the bottom of the sea
long ago. All commercial travellers
have the same tale, and it is a well
known fact that when business called
her one-time owner, Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir, to come on business in rough
weather, he has preferred other means
of travelling.
Yours in grateful anticipation,
TRAVELLER.
"The Colonist the other day reported that C.P.R. officials had been
through the islands between here and
Victoria looking into the trade possibilities, and that, until some definite action has been taken, the City
of Nanaimo will run occasionally. As
a matter of fact the City is already
on this run, and the Herald regards
her as "a more than worthy successor" presumably, that is, to the
Iroquois. That is just as it may be.
The travelling public of Nanaimo has
had all it wanted and lots to spare
of the City of Nanaimo. The Colonist
the other day went over a list of
shipping disasters, any one of which
it seemed to think might have been
prevented by public criticism at the
right time. If the Colonist wishes
to give an earnest of its regard for
the public weel let it institute some
inquiries as to the general condition
and seaworthiness of the City of Nanaimo. The boat may be all right,
but Nanaimo people were afraid to
travel on it. In the winter just past
she had to shelter from every breeze
that blew, and on two occasions it
was reported to the Free Press she
keeled over to such an extent that
the passengers thought she would
never again right herself. We have
long advocated the formation or resurrection of the board of trade here
but heaven save it would ever advocate this kind of thing."—Nanaimo
Free Press.
Natural Advantage!
A few hours after the very elaborate
Christmas dinner little Marie was taking violently 111, and her cousin Elizabeth, who had been unhappy all day on
account of Marie's prettier dress, was
heard to whisper in an awed voice:
"Marie's got the prettiest clothes, all
right, but I've got the strongest stomach."

SKIN SUFFERER TRIED EVERY-
THING-THEN D.D.D. CURED
This was the experience of Mrs.
Geo. Newman, of Orangeville, Ont.
She wrote in Jan., 1910:
"I was terribly troubled with
eczema on my face, neck and hands
for four years. I tried everything
I had heard tell of, then saw yor advertisement in the paper, sent for a
trial bottle of D.D.D., used it on my
face and got well. It is now two
years and no return of the eczema,
I consider I am cured and it certainly was a blessing to me."
No matter how terribly you suffer
from eczema, salt rheum, ringworm
or any other skin disease, you will
feel instantly soothed and the itch
relieved at once when a few drops
of this compound of Oil of Winter-
green, Thymol, Glycerine, etc., is applied. The cures all seem to be permanent, too.

The Shetland wool sweaters, coats

will be in demand for summer. The
summer woolen garments are of
lighter weight than those for cold
weather, and include knitted coats,
caps, loose knickerbockers, and the
quaint "hug-me-tight" of a bygone
generation, used now to slip under a
spring coat on a cool day or for
slight warmth when the sweater is
too heavy. With a white serge skirt
a white knit coat lined with a color
is good-looking and comfortable.
This season it is noticeable that the
knitted coats match the skirt. A serviceable color is a wood brown
knitted coat and serge skirt, worn
with a pongee blouse in natural
tone, embroidered in browns. Sometimes for extra warmth there is a
white jersey blouse worn under the

Victoria Cricket 21ub
Support the Grand Gld Game
On April 6th, 1861, the following
notice appeared in the local press:—
"A meeting of the members of the
Victoria Cricket Club will be held at
Mr. Drake's office on Monday evening at 7 o'clock. Any gentlemen
wishing to join the Club are requested to send in their names to the
Secretary before that day."
Most of you know the history of
the Club since that day, but not many
appreciate how a few have been
called upon from time to time to
support a game which is the Peer of
all sports in science, associations and
the upbuilding of manly characters.
This support has been freely given
both in time and money. To those
who have thus given, the Club now
owes its nourishing condition.
Two years ago the Club's active
list consisted of thirteen paid members. Last year with much hard labour and contributions from many
friends the Club's deficit of some
$500.00 was not only wiped out but a
new and active Club sprang into existence.
It may be of interest to you to hear
what has been accomplished this
year and some of the greater things
to come, not forgetting Tournament
Week and a visit from the Frankford
C. C. of Philadelphia, Pa., U. S. A.
The Victoria Cricket Club has instituted the school series and hopes
next year to place a Junior XI in the
field. We have a schedule for an A.
and B. team, thus placing two XI's
in the field nearly every Saturday.
We have engaged Coppinger for
our professional; a most energetic
and efficient man, as indicated by
the excellent condition of the
grounds at present.
Two tennis courts and a clock
golf green have been laid out, also
an addition built to the present Club
House, for use of ladies.
The Associate Members (or Ladies Branch) of the V. C. C. are extremely active. In fact, with the
Collegiate School (which has the
use of one end of the grounds for
practice), the senior practice nets,
tennis and clock golf, the grounds
' will present an animated picture
week-days.
On    your   membership   card   and
schedule you will  notice a star opposite    certain    match    days.     This
star indicates an  all-day game, with
I luncheon and afternoon tea, to which
lall are cordially invited.    Of course
' for   luncheon    there   is   a   nominal
j charge;    moreover    on    those    days
there will be entrance fee to all except members.
New members are greatly "en
evidence" which is very much to the
point. There is only one legitimate
I way for a Club to support itself,
namely, by its revenue. With a pro-
' fessional, ground rent, improvements, implements and what-not,
you can readily see a substantial sum
is required. It is not our intention to
ask you for a contribution, as it
were, to a charity fund, but to place
a different proposition before you.
In the past, friends of the Club
have subscribed varying amounts,
but, often, after the season is over
ind for the definite purpose of helping the Club out of difficulties. Some
of the subscriptions have been quite
large. It is our desire this year to
place our subscribers on the active
membership list, and to issue to them
at the beginning of the season a regular membership card, thus accomplishing three important points, reducing the larger subscriptions to the
Club dues of $10.00, making all subscribers of $10.00 active members of
the Club, whereby they will derive
the full advantage during the season,
and lastly, placing the Club in a po-
i sition which will do away with the
distasteful necessity of soliciting financial  aid at the close of the  sea-
I son. There are a number who contribute annually $5.00 and take pride
in so doing; they do not attend the
grounds, neither would they care to
subscribe more, but would feel hurt
if not permitted an opportunity of
helping the cause. These gentlemen
are invaluable to the Club, our old
friends and well-wishers, so to speak.
They are our Honorary Members.
Others there are, one of which you
may be, who subscribe $10.00 (or
more) annually. Can we not count
you as an active member now, and
have your moral and personal (as
well as financial) support from the
beginning of the season? We trust
you will favorably consider this
proposition and by forwarding your
cheque now, swell our membership
to the desired number.
Last year wc had forty active
members. In two executive meetings this year we have taken in fifteen and others are waiting. A hundred members taking a personal interest in cricket, tennis, golf, the luncheons, the teas, the tournaments, the
ladies or the juniors, new life would,
undoubtedly, be reciprocally beneficial to all concerned, and a glorious
semi-centennial awakening for The
Victoria Cricket Club.

 $10.00

Just a word to the active members; if you wish to play in matches,
notify the Secretary, and an opportunity to realize your desire will be
forthcoming. You can practice any
day, as the nets are well attended
and Coppinger is ahvays there up to
6 p. m. Doubtless you know of a
desirable new member; if so, kindly
telephone his name and address to
the Secretary,
CRAWFORD COATES.

Cooking witb Electricity
Is far ahead of any other method.   It is the safest, cleanest and best way to cook.   There are no fumes, no smell, no smoke.   So clean and comfortable
that if you once try cooking with electricity you will never be satisfied with any other way.
Miss Dowling is Giving Free Demonstrations
at leading Grocery Stores in Victoria
She will gladly show you why no other cooking apparatus can compare with an electric stove for cleanliness, simplicity and capability.   We would ask
you to call at either of these grocery stores on these dates while Miss Dowling is there demonstrating the superiority of electricity.
