THE WEEK, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1910
One Dollar Pee Annum
HE WATER BY-LAW
For   the   second   time   the   property
vners of Victoria have turned down a
|v-hnv for the purchase of the holdings
he Esquimalt Waterworks Company,
jue Week regrets this result exceedingly,
ith because it was the first paper to activate the purchase,, because it has with-
it  cessation for upwards of five years
■tdeavoufed to bring about that purchase,
Ini because it regards the rejection of thc
Iv-law as a serious matter for the future
the City.    Whatever else may be said,
le fact, remains that the vote leaves the
jaterworks Company in undisputed pos-
Ission of the whole of the Western terri-
Jry of tlie City, and in control of the
later supply  for  the municipalities of
lak Bay and Saanich.    The significance
I  tliis fact can only be properly under-
lied when it is realised that this is the
lily direction in which any considerable
Ipansion can take place.
* -x-      *
if Victoria were looking only to the
I'esent and the immediate future it
ight regard with equanimity the policy
purchasing water by the gallon from
|e Company whose works it has refused
acquire. There is something to be said
ir an arrangement which within two or
|ree months enables the City to increase
supply almost indefinitely by purchas-
|g by the gallon without the necessity for
ly capital expenditure. There have allays been a number of people who have
llvocated thisjetfiirse, but surely they are
lose who have no expectation that Vic-
lim^-will become a great city. Only by
|re widest stretch of imagination can the
eddling of water be regarded other than
temporary expedient.
* #     #
Municipal ownership of public utilities
one of the foremost planks in the plat-
lorm  of  Twentieth  Century  Municipal
Jiolicy.   It has always been advocated by
Ibe Mayor of Victoria who, with that in-
lonsistency which seems to be one of his
uitural  characteristics,   has  now  placed
limself in the forefront of a movement
vhich has defeated and, in the opinion of
nany,  rendered impossible  the  achieve-
neiit of municipal ownership by Victoria.
The Week is quite aware that the Mayor
md those avIio have acted with him will
leny that this is the logical sequence of
iheir action.    They will claim that they
lave only turned down the Goldstream
iroposition in order to go to Sooke, but,
uiless The Week is entirely mistaken, the
property owners of Victoria will never be
so fatuous as to incur the necessary expen-
littire to go to Sooke so long as a private
corporation is in possession of tlie bulk of
the oresent territory to be served, and in
control of practically all future areas into
whicii the City can stretch.   If, however,
effect should be given to the Sooke By-law
which was passed at the Municipal Elections of 1900, it will take at least five
years find the expenditure of three million
la''s before that system can be made
available.,     During  that   time  the  City
will be beying many millions of gallons
of water, ai. (}c per thousand, thc Esquimalt Waterwbvks Company will be consolidating their ]-.0sitioii by making additional heavy expenditure's on capital account, and when tlio Sooke scheme is developed the City will either have to face
li.e problem once more of buying out the
lEsquimalt Company at a ftg-pre whicli will
startle  those  who  have   to  provide  the
[money, or content itself with a restricted
lirea and a limited market.
The Colonist is sometimes, though not
J'fi m, "wise in its generation." After a
Ipa in of foolishness whicli produced the
liosi    disastrous   results,    it   prudently
stopped in its Editorial of yesterday,
when it had summarised the conditions
created by the rejection of the By-law.
It has nothing to say about the causes
whicii led to that rejection. The Week
believes that it will be profitable to consider this phase of the subject, on the
pianciple that some of the errors at any
rate may be avoided in the future.
.;.;. it. .;i
first and foremost is the ineradicable conviction on the part of many citizens that those who have been most active
in supporting the By-law have an "axe to
grind," or have been "squared." This is
so invariably the case in the Dominion of
Canada that no surprise will be felt at the
hold which the opinion has obtained in
Victoria. If tliere is any truth in the
suggestion The Week does not know of it,
and in this particular instance absolutely
refuses to believe it. Some of the most
active opponents of the By-law did not
hesitate to say openly that the Daily
Press had been "squared." This, The
Week does not believe. It would, however, respectfully point out that the action
of the Colonist and the Times in refusing
to print letters against the By-law greatly
strengthened the position of those who alleged ' interested motives."
* *     *
It is deplorable that correspondence
should be handled in the manner iii whicii
the Colonist in particular feels called upon
to deal with it. Its attitude is both unprofessional, unfair and inconsistent. Unprofessional, because all the great English
Dailies publish correspondence freely,
without reference to the views of the
, writers, and often in direct opposition to
their own policy, requiring only the
"bona fides" of a personal signature. The
Colonist has said time and again, that
this was its attitude, but it has repeatedly
fallen down, especially when correspondents have too closely criticised its own inconsistencies. On such an important matter as the Water By-law it could not afford to give any "occasion to the enemy
to blaspheme," and there is little doubt
but that the biggest vote-maker was the
circular placed in the hands of every voter
bearing in red ink the significant comment : "Colonist and Times refused publication of letter enclosed."
* *     *
Another big vote-maker was the execrable taste displayed by the Colonist in
its issue of Thursday, when it stepped
down into the mud, and undertook to fight
the Mayor with his own weapons. The
Colonist has repeatedly endorsed the argument of The AVeek that mud-slinging never
pays and that the only criticism which is
effective is that which relies upon tlie force
and logic of its arguments rather than
on the coarseness of its vituperation. The
Week has its own opinion of the Mayor
and has not been slow to express it—in
English—but if it wished to help him
through any campaign, mayoral or otherwise, it could not do better than attack
him personally as the Colonist did in the
following paragraph. The writer of that
paragraph obviously forgot for the moment
what might he possible with a retort in
the form of a "tu quoque":
"And who is the man who assails
these people with his base insinuations .
What has he ever done except exploit
the prejudices of well-meaning people
to his own advancement ? Tn what
business is he engaged except that exploitation which he has managed to
make win him a salary. With what
enterprise has liis name ever been connected? What, project of public interest has he ever promoted? Uow many
people has he ever employed . He has
seen fit to impugn the motives of men
whose shoes he is not worthy to loose.
It is time that people should see him
as he is a panderer to prejudices, a falsifier of facts, a mischievous man, a
baneful influence in the affairs of Victoria, a demagogue, who poses as omniscient, perverts facts to suit his purposes and questions the motives and
maligns the character of our best
citizens."
':'■        *        *
The final reason why the By-law was
defeated is that a few citizens of the
very highest standing opposed it. They
were men in whom the general public lias
the utmost confidence, and on the day of
the polling not less than fifty voters said
to the writer: "Dick Hall knows what
he's about and he is opposing the By-law.
That's good enough for me; I shall vote
against it." Tliere is probably no man
in Victoria who enjoys a higher reputation as a successful business man ancl a
public-spirited citizen, and The Week is
not surprised that his association with the
opposition had a marked effect ou the result. The AVeek is not in possession of the
reasons which actuated Mr. Hall, neither
does it agree with his stand, but it is
quite clear that he furnished an excuse
to many voters, ancl was a factor in the
defeat of the By-law. The lesson to be
learnt from such a regrettable conclusion
is that the citizens should get busy at, once
in the matter of ensuring an adequate
water supply for next season, and should
insist that immediate steps be taken to
prevent a shortage. Sooke cannot be made
...ailable for many yeaw; the supply at
Elk Lake is both insufficient and the quality objectionable. Every consideration demands that the quickest available' source
should be sought, and it is to be hoped
that there will be no opposition to this,
even on the part of those who have defeated tlie By-law.
THE CONVENTION AT NELSON
The Convention of the Provincial
Conservative Association held in Nelson
last week was the largest, the most successful and the most important in its history. That 278 delegates should have been
represented at the little capital of the
Kootenays, involving a week's absence
from business, and a heavy personal expenditure, is the best possible testimony
at once to the healthy condition of the
party ancl to the enterprise of Nelson.
The hospitality of the citizens, and the
many courtesies they extended to the Convention, without reference to party ties or
affiliations, was extremely gratifying, and
tends to show that the illustrious leader
of the party has set an example in his
treatment of public men which is likely
to be followed. The notable feature of
the Convention was the brilliant address
of Premier McBride, who recognized thu
services of his Kootenay supporters and
adopted the somewhat unusual course of
faking the Convention into his confidence
as to rhe programme of the forthcoming
session of Parliament, the distinctive feature of which will be legislation affecting
land and timber interests. The outstanding feature of the Convention itself was
the unanimous adoption of a series of resolutions embodying the policy which has
been elaborated ami advocated in the
columns of The Week, and which were
moved on the floor of the Convention by
its Editor, A\'hilst there was one dissentient voice, there was no dissentient vole.
The resolutions were received with great
enthusiasm, and their endorsation coni-
mifs the most representative assembly
which could lie gathered together in the
Province to the principle of "Government
colonization of vacant lands." Tt cannot
he too clearly pointed out that the resolutions do not even suggest the method whicii
thc Government should adopt, but merely
affirm a principle, and this principle may
be given effect to either by the action of
the Government alone, or in co-operation
with private enterprise. The sole purpose
of the resolutions was to emphasize the
necessity for immediate action, and for
this The AVeek has made out a good case.
The resolutions are as follows:—
"Whereas the development of thi-
agricultural industry of the province is
not keeping pace with the increase of
population and the growth in other industries, ancl
"Whereas, the permanent prosperity
of any country depends upon the cultivation of the soil, and the local productions of the necessaries of life, and
'Whereas, the present tendency in
British Columbia is to flock to the
cities, whicli may in the near future
present a serious problem, as affecting
the cost of living and the providing of
cheap food for the people;
"Be it resolved, that the time has
arrived when it is desirable to take
some steps to assure the placing of a
larger number of permanent settlers
upon the land, and the government is
requested to take this matter under
its serious consideration and to undertake the work of colonization with the
people of our own race."
A COMING MAN
The Provincial Conservative Association is to be congratulated on the election
of .Air. W. W. Foster of Revelstoke to the
important position of President. The
Week is noiibly gratified at this election,
because of its persistent advocacy of the
recognition of the Upper Country in the
councils of the party, and because of the
splendid character and qualifications of
tlie President-elect. Mr. Foster is a young
man, apparently not over thirty, but he
has already made his mark as a capable
and energetic organizer, a careful student,
and an able advocate of the principles of
the Conservative party. Withal he is
every inch a gentleman, a man essentially
courteous and kind, of the highest integrity, and the most unquestionable sincerity. There is no position in the public
service of the Province to which Mr. Foster may not reasonably aspire, and no
position which he would ot dignify. Tn
liis hands the business .nterests of the
party will be perfectly safe, and are certain to be prosperous,
THE LATE OSBORNE PLUNKETT
The sudden death of Mr. Osborne
Plunkett has produced a shock in the
community in which he has lived for
more than twenty years and in the ranks
of the Conservative party throughout tlie
Province. ft seems incredible that a man
who took a prominent part in the proceedings of the Nelson Convention and
who said good-bye to his many friends on
Monday morning last, should before Wednesday night have crossed the Greal:
Divide. .Mr. Plunkett was a line, healthy,
vigorous specimen of manhood in the
prime of life, who looked to be good for
more than thirty years of continued activity, and there is only too much reason to
fear that the insidious disease which carried him off so quickly must have resulted
from exposure during his recent trip fo
anil from Nelson. Tn any event the party
mourns his loss as a capable and popular
leader, and the Terminal City as a public-
spirited, fearless citizen.
FACING THE SITUATION
AVhen  Mr. T. P. O'Connor paid his
recent visit to Victoria The Week was the
only paper lo point out that  it would be
a mistake to take the brilliant Irishman

At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNQER
There must be many of my readers
who have perused with interest "The
Double Thread," the work of that
talented authoress Ellen Thomycroft
Fowler, and who in the course of their
reading have noted with sincere pleasure and approval her severe strictures
against "gossip." She gives a reason
for these same strictures by recording the conversation of jthe good
ladies of Sunnydale, who, whilst engaged in the charitable work of clothing thc naked bodies of the poor,
enjoy themselves by laying bare thc
foibles of members of their own set.
Who, whilst ending a two-hour sewing bee with the collect which prays
for charity, and departing in the full
consciousness of a pious work well
done, are unconscious of the fact that
they have torn to shreds the reputation of Ethel Harland, the heroine,
or, if they are conscious, rather glory
in the fact. Many women of this
kind are to be found, and not a few
men. There appear to be some natures so constituted that they are
never happy unless they are making
mischief.
»   *   *
And this mischief is not entirely
confined to the moral characters of
our fellow mortals. I have heard of
cases, aye, right here in Victoria,
where some thoughtless person has
remarked that Mrs. B's eldest child
looked as though she were suffering
from scarlet-fever, or some kindred
disease, with the result that the unfortunate Mrs. B's family have been
religiously debarred from association
with their fellows. Whereas, no such
disease was within a hundred miles
of Mrs.  B's  house.

Even the poor dumb animal is not
exempt from the tongue of the scandal-monger. Hear the talc of the cow
which was killed by gossip:
"Not many weeks ago a resident on
the Burnside Road, having necessity
to increase the number of his dairy
cows, called on a neighbour and arranged to purchase a cow from him,
the understanding being that if after
a week's trial the cow did not suit,
she should be returned and the money
refunded. Everything went well for
several weeks until a dairyman appeared on the scene and denounced
the cow as being worthless and suffering from tuberculosis, the result
being that she was returned to her
original owner, who called into service a well known veterinarian who
proceeded to test the cow for tuberculosis, thinking, however, she was
very healthy. Owing to the temperature not having been taken at the
proper times it was found that another test could not be made for six
weeks and so it was decided to
slaughter the poor beast which was
done in the presence of the veterinary surgeon, who made a post mortem
examination and pronounced the cow
absolutely healthy. Needless to say
the purchaser did not get a refund
of his money, and lost a cow worth
a great deal more than he gave for
her, whilst the cow lost what she
could never regain, viz.: her life. And
all this because a dairyman, wishing
to bc smart and willing to disparage
his neighbour's property, made an assertion which had no foundation."
*   *   *
In the last issue of The Week I
made reference to the natural result
of the closing up of "The Restricted
Area," and commented on the fact
that now-a-days it was not safe for
a woman to walk down the streets
of Victoria late at night unescorted.
Allow me to give a concrete example:
A few nights ago a lady was proceeding clown Government street with
a baby in her arms. The baby was
small even for a three months' old
child and she was carrying it snugly
wrapped up in her cloak in order to
protect it from the inclemency of the
weather. To her appeared a man
with the polite (sic) request that he
might be allowed to sec her home.
"Gracious me, yes," replied thc fair
one, "you can carry the baby." Where-

upon she tendered the child to the
intruder, who promptly went off at
a tangent. Things have come to a
pretty pass in the Capital City of
British Columbia when married women have to carry their infants about
with them after dusk in order to protect themselves from the insults of
those, who, like Satan, roam up and
down, seeking whom they may devour. But I will not dwell further
on this subject; it is an unsavoury
one, and I gave no undecided opinion
as to where the blame rightly belongs,
in this column last week.

An echo from Montreal has reached
Victoria. Dear readers, I beseech
you, be not offended. I don't want
to hurt anybody's feelings, and if I
do so, I apologize in advance, but
the story is too good to keep, and
I believe that even those who disapprove of it most, will still see the
humour of it. It appear* that as the
Eucharistic Conference was proceeding in state down the street there
was a Scotchman leaning against a
lamp post. The lamp post was convenient, and he needed a little support. "What's all this?" he enquired
of a French Canadian, who was viewing the procession. "This, sir," replied the other, "is the Eucharistic
Conference, which has received the
blessing of the Pope of Rome." "Oh,
to  with the Pope of Rome!" remarked the impious Scot. "Vat is za*.
you say?" indignantly queried the Catholic.    "To   with  thc  Pope  of
Rome," calmly answered the inebriated one. "You say zat once more,
and I tell you vot I say. I say to
you,  "Goddam   Harry   Lauder."

Why will modern ladies not wear
pockets? Merc man, of course cannot be expected to answer such a question. The fair sex, if they were
truthful, would say that it was because their dress-makers won't let
them. But why? Our grand-mothers
and the stately ladies of a generation or so ago were not averse from
such a practice, at least so I am informed. But the modern dame prefers to carry her handkerchief, her
purse and even her watch in a little
hand-bag which she is perpetually losing, and all because she will not
break away from an absurd custom,
and bow to the dictates of common-
sense. Only the other day I picked
up one of these ridiculous things on
Government Street. Having still remaining, in spite of six years in Canada, some sense of honesty, I was
carrying it with mc to the office, intending to  telephone  to the police,
and on the way met a couple of
friends. We stood chatting for a few
minutes, when I felt a gentle touch
on my elbow, and discovered a charming lady who politely told me that
it was her bag that I had in my
hand. I did not doubt her word for
a moment, but as a matter of principle I desired her to say what the
bag contained... "My gold watch and
chain," she replied. I opened the
bag and, sure enough, there was the
watch and chain, and a purse. And
to my mind the joke of the thing
is that the owner was from her voice,
evidently an English woman, whose
ancestors had been sensible women,
but who had been led astray by the
vagaries of fashion on the North American Continent. Oh, ladies, ladies,
have a little sense. Give up these
foolish hand-bags whicii are a source
of annoyance to yourselves, and are
frequently the cause of great expense
to your husbands and fathers. Buy
gowns with pockets; you will live
longer, provided that you insist on
having the pockets placed in some
convenient position where it will not
take you half-an-hour to find your
handkerchief when you want to
sneeze.

Great are the powers of Competition in trade. Not long ago The
Saturday Evening Post printed an
article showing the healthy state of
affairs which existed when direct
competition was keen. Now I have
found out for myself that this is
perfectly true. Until lately every
time that I went to visit my best
girl and took her a bunch of flowers,
I had to pay 75 cents a dozen for
them, because she is a little bit
particular and will have carnations
or nothing at all, and carnations
were being sold at that ridiculous
price. But, nous avons change tout
cela. Messrs. Wilkerson & Brown,
whose nurseries are situated at the
corner of Fort and Cook Streets,
have opened up a place lower down
on Fort, near Clay's. The immediate
result of this migration has been that
when I visited by usual florist I was
agreeably surprised to find that I
only had to pay 50 cents for the bouquet; a reduction in price, mark you,
which was made by the original florists in town and not by the new arrival. Such a state of affairs is decidedly agreeable to the public and
that competition in every form of
trade will become keener with similar results is the pious wish of the
LOUNGER.

MUSIC
AND  THE   STAGE
The Victoria Theatre
'n  Sunday evening last an excel-
Ijnt Band Concert was given by mem-
l|ers of the Fifth Regiment under the
|-irection of Bandmaster Rogers.    In
.klition several solos were admirably
|-ndered   by   individual   performers,
the public, both by their attendance
| nd   their   subscriptions,   testified   to
lie popularity of the Sunday evening
pneerts.    A similar concert will bc
[liven tomorrow (27th).    On the fol-
vi.ig Sunday Signor Claudio is arming a  musical  treat,  full  details
•vhich will appear in  next Satur-
s issue.
The Prince of Pilsen
1 Monday last Henry W. Savage
.•nted this popular musical com-
|':ly to a crowded house. While there
|i-(!re no stars, it is safe to say that
(11 were good. The staging was ex-
client so far as the limitations of
:e Victoria Theatre allowed, but a
•hole car load of scenery had to be
.-ft at the wharf because there was
p room for it.
New Grand Theatre
Without exception the turn contributed  by  "Huntress"  is  one  of the
Price, who for some long time has
been singing the illustrated songs at
the New Grand, and by Mr. McDonald who has been operator at the
same house. The pictures shown this
week have been excellent, but when
Mr. Jamieson is through with the
films already under contract, he intends to introduce more variety.
There arc one or two improvements
which he purposes making in the
house itself. Good luck "Bob," all
your friends wish you success.
The Majestic Theatre
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" was the piece
de resistance at Mr. Christie's house
during thc early part of the week.
The tragic story was told in a wonderful set of lilms shown in three
parts.
Romano's Theatre
Amongst the most attractive pictures seen in Romano's was "The
Fatal Gold Nugget," a Western drama
of a thrilling nature. Comedy was
also to the fore and the many patrons of this popular Picture House
went away well satisfied with their
evening's entertainment.

Madame "X"
In addition to being thrilling and
tear-compclling beyond any other
play in the memory of this generation, "Madame X" is likewise regarded by the metropolitan critics as one
of the most entertaining dramas of
recent years. In writing this brilliant masterpiece, Monsieur Alexandre Disson, the famous Parisian dramatist, has evinced the characteristic
skill of the French playwrights. Hc
has realized that it would be impossible for any audience to endure thc
strain upon thc sympathies and emotions that this wonder-work calls for,
unless there were adequate humorous
relief. Hc also understands human
nature well enough to comprehend
that there is humour in even the
most tragic moments of anyone's
life.
Thus "Madame X" possesses great
deal of the lighter and more amusing characteristics; features that make
for laughter—as well as those things

made for tears. In the figures of the
three rascally fellows who try so desperately to make capital out of the
misfortunes of the woman there is
much to entertain and amuse, there is
a very charming and life-like love romance involving the son of the luckless Madame X, while even the pathetic little porter, Victor, has moments
in which he arouses shouts of laughter, as for example when he so drolly
misconstrues the questions of the
judge in the thrilling trial scene.
Henry W. Savage will offer this superb drama of mother-love, staged
exactly as in New York, and played
by a company of the highest merit at
the Victoria Theatre on Monday, November 28th.
A Broken Idol
"A Broken Idol," which is said to
be a musical farciality, filled with surprises, will be seen at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday, December 5th.
It comes direct from eight months
in Chicago, six months in New York
and seven months in Boston. During
a row in a chop suey restaurant, in
Los Angeles, California, a party of
tourists break a Chinese Idol. They
think they havc killed a real Chinaman and through this many entanglements happen and matters are not explained until the final curtain. Gus
Sohlke, the well-known stage director, has put many novel effects in
"A Broken Idol" and spectacular incidents follow each other in rapid
succession. Thc song hits are numerous, among them being "China
Doll," "Love makes the World Go
Round," "Alabama," and others. A
company of over fifty is carried, including the famous "Chop Suey Dancing Girls."
New Grand Theatre
Daly's Country Choir is from "Melody Lane," by the most direct route.
Thc choir makes no pretentions and
no claims are made for it save the
one: that it can sing. It is a collection of voices selected for their purity and sweetness and particularly
adopted to the,sweet old songs whicii
have   left   such   lasting   impressions.
Vaudeville, no matter what price is

An Adult Kindergarten
BY BOHEMIAN
It is the business of a newspaper
man to notice the signs of the times
and lie falls short of the responsibilities of his position if he contents
himself with being a mere machine,
a retailer of news items.
Among the signs of the times I
think I note one whicii is more significant than most people are aware
of. I refer to the tremendous hold
which moving picture shows have
obtained on the attention and interest of the public.
When they were first introduced
hardly more than ten years ago, they
attracted by their novelty. Thc spec
tacle of galloping horses and rapidly
moving trains was so new in its pic
torial representation as to be sensational, but novelty speedily gave place
to merit and the great French house
of Pathe Freres developed a class of
film which made the moving picture
a work of art, and greatly increased
its usefulness.
The next stage was a portrayal of
scenery, not unlike the old-time diorama, but moving picture shows
first became popular when they became the medium for dramatic representation; and now-a-days their
strong-hold is in the rendition of
"plays without words." So admirably
are the films developed that it is a
delight to watch the unfolding of a
drama. Every movement is perfectly
clear, and the story is often much
better told than if it were spoken,
ft would take a volume to descant
on thc collaboration of pictorial and
literary art, but in all ages man has
striven to illustrate his subject, and
the picture books of our youth will
always be the most cherished of life's
treasures. It is not only in the infant Kindergarten that an appeal to
the eye is more effective than an appeal to the ear.
Thc latest development is one
which I venture to predict has inaugurated a great future for moving pictures. It has entered upon its educational stage. It is now becoming
an indispensable adjunct of scientific
societies, and "per contra" educational topics arc being treated in
those houses which exploit the business. At our local theatres many interesting subjects have been illustrated. What could possibly convey as clear an impression of the operations at the Panama Canal as the
series of moving pictures recently exhibited by Clifford Denham at the
Victoria Theatre? Not long ago I
witnessed a splendid demonstration
of thc deep sea fishing industry at
the Romano, and this week one can
learn more about the Swiss milk industry at the New Grand than by
reading volumes.
Every lover of art, and every one
who is anxious to secure interesting
and profitable entertainment for the
masses will welcome the incursion
of the moving pictures into this new
domain.    It  does  not  diminish  the

legitimate percentage of fun ancl
amusement, but it adds a new page
to the book and renders it possible
to bring the details of many important subjects before the eyes of the
people in such a form that they cannot  fail  to  understand.
We are not all masters of English,
and there are few people who have
not at one time or another experienced great difficulty in interpreting
a descriptive account of some industry or invention. So thoroughly is
this fact recognised by the legal authorities that no invention can be patented unless the written description
is accompanied by a ..^sketch. The
"Adult Kindergarten" ..fills thc same
want with respect to many topics of
real interest and importance, and I
hope that this phase of the subject
will be developed not at the expense
of innocent and enjoyable entertainment, but at the expense of the impertinent vulgarism which has a tendency to creep in, and whicii will, undoubtedly, be vetoed by the police
authorities.
The moving picture house has come
to stay; it is no longer regarded as a
cheap, third-rate place of entertainment; it has received the "cachet" of
fashionable society; all the Victoria
houses are packed, and thc same is
true in every city that I have visited.
The entertainment appeals because it
is bright, intelligent, pleasing and
cheap. Hereafter it will appeal because  it  is  instructive.

A Victorian who is more famed for wielding the pen
than pulling the gun-trigger was out Duncans way shooting a few weeks ago. He had with him a small Victoria
boy to carry his game bag. Having missed 5 pheasants
in succession, the gunner cried out delightedly as he shot
at the sixth bird: "There, I hit him, I saw the feathers
Hy. Didn't they?" "Yes," said the small boy, "they flew
off with the bird."

Yawl Stolen to Raid a Reformatory

boys came under the notice of the police yesterday. Two Bournemouth
lads, Benjamin Wallace Brittain, fifteen, and Bryan Alfred Thomas Fitzgerald, eleven, were found drifting
helplessly up Channel off the Needles
in a yawl. They stated to their rescuers, two fishermen at Freshwater,
that they seized the yawl at night at
Muddiford with the intention of sailing to Stony Stratford, on the Ouse,
in North Buckinghamshire, to recover
and bring back home five of their
former companions now in a reformatory at that place.

CORRESPONDENCE
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—Knowing the strong
stand you take on "what should be
known," whether unpleasant or otherwise, I will now give a few figures
whicii 1 think ought to be looked in
to, as it would appear that fruit
growing  may  be   over  done.
One is told that there is an unlimited market for all our fruit in
the Prairies. But is this so? Truly
a very large market exists, which is
increasing very rapidly, but at the
same time, this market will not begin
to handle the fruit production of B.
C. in a few years.
Let us try and size up the likely
population of our chief market in
five or six years time, that is when
our present acreage is in bearing.
Say the population of B. C, Alaska
and the Prairies in 1916 amounts to
3,000,000; allowing four to a family
gives some 750,000 families. Tree
fruit consumption (average) per family say $30. Total market requirements $21,000,000. This is a large
market, and B. C. ought to obtain
the larger share of this, which will
bc a splendid thing, but how many
million dollars' worth of fruit are going to be produced, judging by the
doubling and quadrupling of the acreage put in fruit. Fivc hundred dollars and over per acre (clear profit!)
is the production of fruit according
to pamphlets, advts., etc., but taking it at $300 an acre gives but 70,-
000 acres required to supply the total
market ($21,000,000) in 1916. And
Washington and Ontario must also
have a look in, on this market! We
also havc other markets, but it is
to the Northwest we must look for
our mainstay. f understand that
more than 70,000 acres are already
planted in fruit in this province,
whicli is being increased very rapidly.
I desire to know what is going to
be done with all the fruit produced,
when this great acreage comes into
full bearing? Even this year with
only a small acreage (compared with
what is coming in) the market felt
the extra good crop, and there was
considerable price cutting. Some
very cheap fruit was quoted by Washington  growers  to  Prairie dealers.
' Washington and Oregon have also
enormous acreage planted out in fruit,
which is also going to have an effect
on the market.

Westholme, V. I.,
15th November, 1910.
The Editor of The Week:
Sir, — Your articles concerning
"Land Settlement in B. C." including
the labour question, have been much
to the point, ancl it is quite time that
the importance of your subject was
recognized. I think, with you, that
most of the conditions favourable to
agriculture arc present, but are rendered nugatory by the scarcity and
cost of labour. Otherwise one is
at a loss to account for the facts
mentioned by you concerning fruit
growing. The same state of affairs
exists as regards farming of all sorts,
and must hamper industries of all
classes. You propose as a remedy
that "Government should import and
settle permanently on the land an
agricultural population, a population
which would be content to stay there,
etc." Where I would ask is such a
population to bc found? Not certainly in Great Britain. Thc fatal
tendency towards city life seems,
more or less, common to all civilized
countries. If, however, the people of
tlle British Islands persist in crowding into the great towns notwithstanding the fact that they have there
to submit to thc horrible conditions
of slum life, how can we expect that
they w-ill not do thc same here, where
slum life does not exist? Where they
can count upon a special wage of
three dollars for what really incans
seven hours easy work, ancl where
the practice of a very reasonable
amount of thrift will soon ensure
them in thc possession of a comfortable home of their own. As to
the difficulty of obtaining land giving
rise to the tendency in question, such
an idea is disposed by the fact that
it   is   more  pronounced   in  the   Col
onics than in Great Britain. It seems
then likely that your imported population would soon drift to the towns
where, as in Victoria, thc wage earner
declares he cannot live on $2.75 per
day ancl straightway obtains another
rise of 25 cents. The effect:of this
most liberal policy will of course increase the desire for city life at the
expense of country employers. There
can be little doubt that the high cost
of living in B. C. is to a considerable
extent, due to the constantly increasing rate of wages. Wage earners feel
thc pinch, as do others, and insist
on still higher pay, which means another rise in the cost of living, and
so the game goes merrily on. More
work has to be provided for those to
whom has been given the power to
"call the tunc" without having to
"pay the piper." Thc question is, how
long is such a situation going to last
and who will havc to do the paying
when the inevitable end comes?

Realty Sales
(Willi apologies to the busy blameless Reporter)
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—The publishing of a complete
authentic list of the daily realty sales
in this city, which can only be prepared by and through the courtesy
of the officials in the Land Registry
office, as is done in most of the cities
of the United States, would undoubtedly be valuable news to thc general
public, including owners and purchasers; and would effectually dispose
of the grossly misleading spasms now
appearing, being a direct result of
certain agents desirous of obtaining
cheap publicity. Let mc quote just
oite of thc daily instances apparent
to any citizen interested in the welfare of our city, "In the last few days
a certain piece of property has been
advertised as sold by five different
agents always at the same figure of
twenty thousand dollars."

A pretty wedding was celebrated
recently at St. Paul's Church, Esquimalt, when Miss Vyvian Muriel Bolton, only daughter of the Rev. W. W,
Bolton, was married to Mr. Thomas
Cecil Cummins of Bonnington Falls.
Thc bride who looked very pretty,
wore a smart tailor-made coat and
skirt  and  a  very  smart  set  of  furs
with toque to match. The Rev.
Baugh-Allan performed the ceremony.
The groom was supported by Mr.
Douglas Bullen, cousin of the bride.
A small reception was afterwards held
at the residence of the bride's parents, only relatives and intimate
friends being present. Mr. and Mrs.
Cummins left later in the afternoon
for Portland where the honeymoon
will be spent.
The Cafe Chantant given under the
auspices of the Anti-Tuberculosis Society, held its opening entertainment
in the Institute Hall last Tuesday
evening at half past eight. A large
audience assembled and all pronounced the evening a great success. One
of the greatest attractions was the
candy booth which was in charge of
Mrs. Beauchamp-Tye and Mrs. Wolf-
sohn, assisted by thc Misses Monteith.
Lorna Eberts, Ruby Fell, Mabel
Eberts and Daisy Wilson. It was
artistically carried out in pink and

THE ANTI-TUBERCULOSIS SOCIETY'S CAFE CHANTANT
The Cafe Chantant in aid of the
Anti-Tuberculosis Society, which
commenced on Tuesday evening and
finishes tonight has been very successful and substantial proceeds
will doubtless be obtained for this
good cause. Each night the Institute Hall has been crowded, the reserved tables being all booked up,
and the seating capacity fully occupied. Taking it all round the entertainment is well worth seeing. The
great feature of the show among so
many good turns is undoubtedly the
Moon Song from San Toy, with the
solo by Mrs. Roy Troupe, whose
sweetly modulated voice aroused the
enthusiasm of the audience to repeated encores. The chorus is good
and has evidently been carefully
trained and Miss Ermine Boss is very
graceful in her dance. The dances of
Miss Inez Zimmerman, the talented
young performer from Seattle, are
of a very high order and her Scotch
sword dance evoked much applause.
Miss Dougall James is also a very
graceful dancer, who appeared in a
pretty veil dance. "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland," with solos by
Miss Nellie Lugrin and Mr. Brown,
assisted by the chorus, was well rendered and the refrain is a very catchy
one. The stage setting was very effective. The coon song of Mr. Scott.
ancl "Miss Payne" whose make-up
was excellent, took thc house by
storm. Mrs. Jarley's Waxworks one
of the principal items on the programme, is admirably arranged by
Mrs. Griffiths and Mrs. Cross. The
ligures are very good and go through
the trying ordeal of standing still
so long with great credit. Some of
thc costumes are very striking. Mrs.
Jarley and  her assistant    are    good
showmen   and   Eliza   makes   a
dainty attendant.
The tableaux representing the |
ous  Dana Gibson  pictures are
attractive, but the curtain hardlJ
mains up long enough. "A BachJ
Dream,"  arranged  by  Mrs.    Ga
was a very pretty scene with a|
ting of old songs, the dresses

tables  are  under the  able    mat!

At this moment there was a hasty

It appeared that the Commodore only
wanted a rest cure. He had been at
work for three years with very little

ray of hope. Under the soothing influence of my friend, he was induced
to tell his  troubles.
"Three years ago," he began, "the
Victoria Yacht Club had no home,
no boats, but only a flag. I suggested a real Yacht Club with a club
house. But the people cried out in
scorn. 'What is the use of a Yacht

"What?" I asked with bated breath.
"They tell me not to butt in," he
wailed.

who had remained very quiet during
the recital of the two distracted nautical ones' woes, "cheer up. You are

It's what grieves me; to think of

Now this was all very affecting,

they would wait till they were dead

And now I hear the Navy has gone

Local Option
Discussing thc question of Local
Option (Scott Act) which is at present the live issue in Saskatoon, Alta.,
the "Pioneer" of that city says very
sensibly; "We arc not possessed of
any large amount of confidence in
the value of Local Option as a
means of checking the evils of the
drink traffic. We arc inclined to
think, as with sonic other eyils of
the day, that what is wanted is more
character, and less law; more good
chics and less personal interference."

November Rod and Gun
While big game hunting supplies
the dominant note in the November
number of Rod & Gun in Canada,
there is in the issue plenty of material for sportsmen who are not
able for various reasons to go after
mouse, deer or bear. In the opening article, Bonnycastle Dale tells
how Indian boys make clever hunters, trappers and fishermen and with
what skill they decimate the inhabitants of the forest. Exploration in
the Nepigon country, fishing and
mountaineering topics, with many
other papers and some fine verses,
fill the number whicii should find its
way into all hunting camps. Sportsmen, where'er they may be found,
can enjoy some pleasant half hours
by dipping into its contents.
Outsiders Will Build A.  G.  W.  R.
That the Alberta and Great Waterways railway will surely bc built and
that an outside company will construct it, is the opinion of J. K. Cornwall, M.L.A., who has just returned
from Peace River to attend the legislature. Mr. Cornwall docs not give
any reasons for his belief. He just
states it. He says the C. P. R. will
beat both the C. N. R. and G. T. P.
into the north country, owing to the
fact that the latter two have their
hands full now. He announces he
will take another press party into the
north land next summer.

north of the Athabasca river, J. K.
Cornwall, M.L.A., for Peace River,
is planning to conduct into that country next summer, a press party similar to that which he took into the
Peace River country last summer.
He expects tliat several of the writers who were with him last summer,
will be with him again. ' "I have
shown these writers what the agricultural resources of the north west
corner of the province are, now I
am going to show them what the
mineral resources of the northeast
corner are. We have got the goods
both in an agricultural and mineral
line. We have shown them in one
instance and we are going to show
them in the other." Mr. Cornwall
will take the party down the Athabasca to Fort McMurray during
which trip he will give them a 100
mile ride through rapids on flat
boats, traversing the famous Grand
Rapids on the way. He will not only
take the party through the mineral
section of the province, but will also
take them to within 400 miles of Fort
Churchill on Hudson's Bay. "The
trip will bc almost entirely by water,"
said Cornwall. "I expect to be able
to go right from the Landing to the
end of the journey in boats."

New Collieries
Mr. W. L, Coulson, general manager of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd., while visiting Extension met a committee representing the miners and discussed with
them the differences that arose a
short time ago in reference to the
introduction of Monobell powder into
the mine and as a result of the conference an amicable understanding
was reached. Mr. Coulson stated
plans arc being drawn up for the
opening of new mines at Extension
and Cumberland, work on which will
be commenced early next spring, and
other development work is in progress
which in the near future will materially increase the coal output. While
at Extension Mr. Coulson discussed
with the committee the advisability

Fishery Licenses
His Honour Judge Mclnnes in Vancouver, recently gave judgment in
the appeal of a fisherman named *An-
tonino, in which hc upholds the right
of the provincial government to exact a fisherman's license under its
powers of taxation. Antonino was a
fisherman who had taken out his Dominion license, but refused to take
out the provincial license. He was
taken before the magistrate at Steveston by Provincial Fisheries Officer
Sam North, and lined for his delinquency. Against this he appealed,
but Judge Mclnnes has dismissed
thc appeal. The judgment is important as the first pronouncement
of the higher courts confirming the
rights of the province to levy fishery
licenses, though the judge distinctly
stated that he was not adjudicating
on the jurisdiction of the Dominion
or provincial government over the
fisheries. He merely held that on
account of the powers of taxation
vested in the province the government had the right to levy the license.
