THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1912
Tenth Year
One Dollar Per Annum
llBILEE HOSPITAL—The ladies of
Victoria who are affiliated with two
of    its    noblest    organizations,    the
pen's Auxiliary ancl the Daughters of
have  inaugurated   a campaign  by
|is of which they hope ultimately to
the sum of $300,000.   The campaign
1 officially opened at a public meeting
in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A.
light.   The prime movers in the mat-
ere the presidents of the two organiza-
aforementioned,   Mesdames   Helen
•tson and Elizabeth Hiscock, with Mrs.
(s Ballantine as campaign secretary,
are many reasons why this move-
| deserves the support of every citizen
pan spare even a dollar to alleviate
suffering.    Perhaps it may not be
place to summarize a few of these
lis.   The first ancl strongest is the ab-
necessity for a new hospital, the pre-
[me is obsolete; and while its various
I'talents are carried on   to   tlie   best
itage under the control of a competent
orate, the appliances are so inadequate
it is impossible to do justice to the
its or to the institution.   The demand
ntirely outgrown the possibilities c f a
ing designed to meet the requirements
city with less than half the population
:lay and only a tithe of that of the near
e.    The kitchen department is hope-
inadequate ancl one wonders how it
J_sible to keep the patients from starva-
Iwhen meals for so many have to be
Ired in one small room and carried
ind to every building.   Then the pre-
I arrangements not only handicap the
Jnmodation but the medical skill which
Inly be exercised to the fullest advant-
linder modern conditions, and with up-
jtte appliances which it is impossible to
II in the present building. Again if
growing needs of. Victoria are admitted
can be no question that the women
I "ictoria have demonstrated their right
onduct this campaign.    It is the one
in which they far outshine their male
Ipetitors.   Indeed, by common consent,
pan has made hospital work of every
her own,  ancl from the clay when
[ence Nightingale set the seal of per-
devotion upon the work of caring for
| sick ancl suffering the whole civilized
•\ has recognized the supreme fitness of
I ian for this sphere of activity.    The
len of Victoria have not been behind
sisters of any other city in showing
• fitness antl devotion.   During fifteen
s they have by various agencies raised
paid into the hospital funds the splen-
sum of $45,000, and that they have
this constitutes their strongest right
lirganize ancl  to conduct a campaign
pi, if properly appreciated by the pub-
1' cannot fail to achieve its purpose,
re is a sense in which this subject comes
t home to everyone of us. No one can
when he may require to enter a ward
he Jubilee Hospital, ancl it is not to
tie the spirit of altruism which animates
right-thinking man to admit that he
Iielf has a personal interest in providing
lp-to-date, properly equipped hospital,
ie Capital City of British Columbia.
fclVIC CENTRE—Now that the question of the new City Jail has been
disposed of, ancl the Council has de-
to spend the $30,000 which the rate-
|irs voted last year in providing decent
suitable   accommodation,   The Week
Ild respectfully urge the authorities to
that provision is made in the new
ling to accommodate the periodic
iks who have heretofore monopolized
best wards and the best nurses at the
litals.   While there was nowhere else to
take them they had to go there, but it is
unfair to other patients, and it not infrequently monopolized room badly needed
for legitimate cases. The question of the
jail, however, clears the way for the bigger
question of a "civic centre." The Parks
Committee is first in the field with the recommendation that a new City Hall be built
on the site of the present one, and that the
lots at the back which do not belong to the
City should be acquired so as to place the
whole block at the disposal of the builder.
To purchase the additional land, even at
present prices, ancl to build and equip a
suitable block, would cost $1,000,000, involving an annual charge of at least $50,000.
The Week believes that a better project is
in sight. If the City erected a block of
similar size and accommodation on the
Pandora Street gore, the only cost would be
that of building and equipment. The sale
of the land owned by the City constituting
the site of the present City Hall deducted
from the cost of the new building would
leave a balance of not more than $200,000
to be financed, involving an annual charge
of $10,000. With the Fire Hall, Police
Court, ancl Jail upon the present Market
site no inconvenience would be experienced
from locating the City Hall on Pandora
Street, ancl the site will within a few years
bc as near to the centre of New Victoria as
the present Douglas Street site is near to
thc City of today. The Week hopes that
the ratepayers will be given an opportunity
to pronounce on both schemes; they certainly have that right, and should be permitted to exercise it.
PRINCESS PATRICIA—By common
consent the most popular young lady
in Canada, if not in the whole of the
British Empire, is Princess Patricia. In
looking among the Princesses for suitable
names with which to honour their vessels
the C. P. R. have shown a fine discrimination in christening their latest addition to
the Pacific fleet. The distinguished party
of guests so delightfully entertained by Captain and Mrs. Troup on the trial trip of
the Princess Patricia on Thursday gave an
"eclat" to the occasion whicii augurs well
for the popularity and goocl luck of the boat.
With such a send-off its future could hardly fail to be in every sense of the word a
success. The new boat has already been
dubbed the "Flyer." Alongside the Princess
Victoria ancl the Princess Charlotte she
looks a midget; her displacement being only
about 1,200 tons against 2,000 tons in the
former and 2,300 in the latter. But proportionate to her displacement her engine
power leaves the other boats far behind.
Whereas, the Princess. Victoria registers
6,000 li. p., ancl the Princess Charlotte
5,000 h. p., the Princess Patricia has 4.000
h. p., so whatever the votaries of the older
boats may say it is out of the question for
either of them to beat the newer one in a
thorough test. Captain Troup is entitled
not only to the thanks but the hearty congratulations of the people of the Coast for
the energy he has shown in securing such
a splendid steamship service. It is true that
the demands of trade and travel fully justify all that the Company has done, but
had it not been for Captain Troup's foresight and perseverance it is certain that such
a fleet would not have been found in the
Coast service for some time to come. One
cannot help reflecting on what must have
occurred to one of the guests on board tlie
Patricia last Thursday, Mr. D. W. Higgins,
who could recall experiences of more than
half a century ago, with the hardships ancl
delays incident to travel between American
ports and the pioneer Victoria of those
clays. He ancl a few of his contemporaries
have lived to see a development whicii must
be as marvellous in their eyes as it is gratifying to the men of today.
ALIGHT SLOGAN—The Week has
no wish to discourage the spirit of
enterprise in Victoria, on the other
hand a reference to these columns for the
last ten years will show that if there has
been one idea more prominent than another
in the mind of the Editor it has been the
necessity for waking up Old Victoria.
This awakening process really began four
years ago, and took on its present habitude
of real activity two years ago. Now in
consequence of many reasons which are so
well known that they need not be specified
Victoria is literally forging ahead. The
progress is on safe and permanent lines, a
foundation on which Victoria has always
built. Its future is assured by the assured
development of Vancouver Island, by the
assured building of a bridge across Seymour
Narrows, and by the impending opening of
the Panama Canal. These are all solid reasons for advancement and tend to demonstrate the fact that Victoria needs no
ginger-bread advertising, least of all any of
the cheap tinsel display which has brought
such ridicule upon American cities, ancl
which was so properly resented by the
people of Victoria a year ago when for
forty-eight hours the City was rendered
ridiculous by a vulgar specimen of Seattle
"boosting." Our people have no intention
of sinking to the level of "Do it now" or
"Do it in Victoria." Yet there are some
people who think that a scheme of illumination for the harbour would be incomplete
without what they euphemistically term a
"Light Slogan." Whatever else Victoria
wants it does not want an abomination of
this kind. To put an American tag on our
fair City would be a degradation ancl that
is all that a slogan would amount to. lt is
not necessary to tell the visiting tourist that
this is a "beautiful city," the "gateway of
the Pacific," or "a bit of England on the
Pacific Coast," they can see all these things
for themselves. The Week hopes that
those who are pushing the idea for an
illuminating scheme will on mature reflection eliminate this feature, out of respect
for the real character, and the many attractions, of the most beautiful citv in the
West.
THE I. W. W.—A Vancouver paper
keeps hammering away at the Attorney-General because it professes
to disapprove of his action in the matter
of the I. W. W. strikers in the Fraser Canyon. One can understand that a paper
which started under the auspices of the
Liberal party, which is said to have procured 15,000 good party subscriptions before it ventured to make its first issue, and
which has promised pretty nearly everything under the sun in the way of political
scalps has got to beat the big drum ancl
make a noise occasionally. On no other
grounds can one account for its criticism of
Mr. Bowser in this matter. If he had done
what the Sun now suggests and either
called out the Militia or employed some
other exceptional means to put down the insurrectionists by brute force the Sun would
have been the first to hold up its hands in
holy horror, ancl to denounce such drastic
treatment of the "honest working man." But
because Mr. Bowser declined to adopt sensational methods, and persisted in showing
bis faith in the efficacy of British law firmly and quietly enforced, the Sun is trying
hard to make out that he is not alive to the
true situation of affairs, and that he is
allowing the country to be run by a gang
of anarchists. The real trouble with the
Sun is that Mr. Bowser's methods have
been only too successful. Without sensation  and without fireworks the ordinary
forces at his command have been utilized
intelligently, and have been completely successful in wearing out the unruly invaders.
Last but by no means least important in
this connection the Sun does not seem to
have discovered that the strike is over and
that it is flogging a dead horse.
FORESTRY-The Hon. W. R. Ross
has returned from an important
mission to Ottawa. The main purpose of his visit was to discuss, ancl if possible to settle with the Federal authorities
a number of details in connections with forestry protection from fire. This is all in
line with the valuable services rendered to
the Province by the Forestry Commission,
ancl the determination of the Provincial
Government that no stone should be left
unturned to put a stop to the appalling
waste which has been taking place for several years. It is gratifying to know that
Mr. Ross' negotiations have been entirely
successful, ancl that he will be able to put
into effect a number of regulations which
will undoubtedly save many millions to the
Province in the future. The other important business which the Minister had in hand
was the final settlement of certain details
in connection with Provincial Water
Rights. These have now been settled, ancl
the Department will be for the first time in
entire control of one of our most important
assets. Mr. Ross is to be congratulated on
the successful issue of highly important
negotiations.
VICTORIA DAY—It is not only the
privilege but the duty of every
citizen of Victoria to put his
shoulder to the wheel ancl help to make
the Vietoria Day celebration a success.
Anyone who will take the trouble to read
the little folder issued by the Committee
will see bow thoroughly they have entered
into the spirit of the occasion. The horse
and auto parade should be the best on record, whilst the competition for horses actually runs to 2S classes, in every one of
whicii good prizes are to be awarded. The
intention of the Committee is to make the
celebration worthy of the day, and as far
as The Week is able to judge a better attempt has never been made. The Parade
Committee includes the men who have had
most to do with this class of work in the
past, wth Mr. J. W. Lorimer as chairman.
The proceedings are under the direction and
control of His Worship thc Mayor, ancl the
official secretary, Mr. J. B. McCallum, is indefatigable in his efforts. The Week bespeaks for Victoria Day. which is sure to
be bjessed with Queen's- weather, a record
attendance and a record entertainment.
THE CITY OF HOPE—Among the
many points of interest being created by the present unprecedented
development in B. C. is the city of Hope.
This historic place is on the banks of the
Fraser and divides with Yale the earliest
authentic records of the Fraser and Cariboo
rush. When the gold mining days were
over it subsided into a practically deserted
village, and has been almost a negligible
quantity in British Columbia affairs for
nearly forty years. Now it is coming to
the front again by reason of its geographical position, its strategic importance, and
the advent of three lines of railway. It
is to be the portal of the Nicola and Similkameen valleys, and the Kettle Valley Railway, the V. V. & E. and the C. N. R. will
all converge at this point. The result is
that every inch of available land will become valuable for townsite purposes, and
within a few years Hope will have to bc
reckoned among the important transportation, industrial ancl mining centres of the
Interior. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1912
The last thing that I would be
guilty of is ungallantness and therefore I hope that my readers will acquit me of any such misconduct when
I lodge a complaint which has been
voiced scores of times at the street
corners but never, I think, in the
Press. The complaint is that the
theatrical agencies which furnish entertainment to the patrons of the Victoria Theatre seem to have a perpetual grudge against young actresses.
Season after season, until one almost
loses count, we are visited by a host
of dear old ladies dressed up lamb-
fashion, who wheeze and amble and
tatter about the stage ill a futile endeavour to recall, the days of twenty,
thirty or forty years ago. Some of
them manage fairly well, at any rate
until they trip against something,
when their inability to recover poise
tells a tale. Other assiduous devotees
of the modern Madame Rachel successfully cover up their age, but none
succeed in looking young. They
come to us when they have lost form,
feature, and voice, but they bring one
thing, and that is about all, a reputation. That would not be so bad if it
were not so ancient and venerable,
but as a rule even the most charitable
and kind among us find our credulity
severely taxed when we are asked to
believe that at one time they really
could act. Now my kick is that
there are young actresses who can
act, 1 could name a dozen, whom
Victorians would be delighted to welcome. They are registering successes
in London, New York, Chicago, and
many other Eastern American cities
and they will reach Victoria—some
day, but by that time they will have
joined the ranks of the women with
a past, I mean an acting past.

This time last year I called attention
to what I regarded as a very interesting circumstance, and one which was
certainly a remarkable endorsation of
the stand taken by The Week on the
water question. At that time the
Worswick Paving Co. were busy paving Fort street between Cook and
Vancouver; they kept an old man carrying water from a natural spring on
Richardson Street to supply the;r
workmen. Backwards and forwards
he travelled from eight o'clock in the
morning until five o'clock at night,
carrying a bucket in each hand. I
envied those workmen, I almost
made up my mind to join the noble
band, attracted not at all by the $3.00
a day but by the opportunity to get
a draught of pure water. This week
I passed the spring, it was still flowing with water as clear and sweet as
ever, it is not relieving the thirst of
labourers, because there is no paving
going on in the vicinity, but thc
neighbours, within a radius of a quarter of a mile at any rate, are constant customers. Lucky Richardson
Street say I, may your spring never
run dry.
* *   *
Por three years I have constantly
called attention in this column to the
pollution of the inner harbour by a
stream of filth and soap-suds from
the laundry of the Empress Hotel.
No one seems to have taken any notice of my feeble cry, but I am getting tired and I intend that somebody shall take notice. It is hopeless
to expect anything in this regard from
the C. P. R. T^ey are so busy attending to transportation matters that
lhey cannot be expected to give a
thought to soap-suds, and yet, soapsuds can play a very important part
in creating a public nuisance. If
.anyone doubts this let him stand on
the Causeway near the Northwest
Corner and lean over the parapet. I
venture to state that he will not lean
long, he Will bc first assailed through
his visual organs and will notice a
wide stream of milky injection wearing its way towards the James Bay
boathouse in the    distance,   and the
Grand Trunk wharves on the right.
Anywhere near the Causeway it is
thick and viscous but gradually tones
down to an opalescent tint. By the
time the visual organ has grasped
this elementary condition the olfactory organ will have suggested
strongly the wisdom of "moving on,"
and the wise Lounger will have taken
the hint. If anybody but the C. P. R.,
or a similar wealthy corporation, had
committed the nuisance they would
have been hauled up in Court, but
because forsooth they are rich and
powerful and have done so much for
Victoria—which nobody, least of all
the Lounger, wishes to deny they
must forsooth be permitted to perpetrate what is little short of an outrage to say nothing of a dangerous
and unsanitary nuisance. The excuse
that they furnish free soap to those
who wish to bathe in the harbour
might be of some force if it were not
otherwise polluated with garbage and
refuse which puts bathing out of the
question; so I will come back to my
original proposition that somebody
has got to "sit up and take notice."
The nuisance has existed for four
years, every reasonable means to allay it has been tried, and I now put
the matter up to Captain Clarke, the
harbour master, who, I am informed,
is in legal control of the waters of
the harbour, and I hope to be able to
announce next week that he is prepared to do his duty as a public official without fear or favour.
* *   *
I have several times offered a little
kindly criticism on the doings of the
Fifth Regiment. My readers will remember the little pleasantry exchanged with them in connection with
transportation to and from the camp
last year, when the men were too
weary to march and had to be packed
into tram cars; although the matter
was explained by the officers the explanation was very lame and created
much amusement. But that was nothing to the amusement created by the
parade of the Regiment along Government Street on Monday evening
last. For some reason or the other
there was a lack of smartness among
the men and a general air of indifference. I was at a loss to account
for this as were some of my friends
and the subject has been canvassed
in many quarters. An ingenious compatriot, whose eagle eye nothing escapes, offers an explanation which
may have something in it. He refers
me to Sunday's issue of the Colonist
which contains a picture of Lieut.-
Colonel Currie iu uniform, wearing
his sword on his RIGHT side. It is
said that a photograph cannot lie; if
not the gallant officer stands convicted
of a breach of military etiquette which
would go far to explain the lack of
discipline and indifference shown on
Monday night.
* *   *
A few days ago I was the recipient
of a photograph which proved to be
of particular interest to me, as it
would have been to many other
readers of The Week. Unfortunately
the photograph was too faint for reproduction purposes, otherwise my
readers would have had an excellent
view of a common occurrence on
Broad Street. The picture showed
the entrance to Spencers' Emporium
and would have been a gratifying addition to any collector of "Views of
Victoria's Prosperity." Needless to
say, there was very little street or
sidewalk to be seen, but there was a
goodly display of packing-cases and
an excellent exhibition of draught
horses and delivery wagons. Some
day, long after we are all dead and
buried, there will be a Mayor and
Council in Victoria, unless by that
time we are happily governed by a
real despot with power of life and
death, who will not allow the public
to be defrauded of their share of the
sidewalk for the benefit of a wealthy
Department Store proprietor.
*   *   *
I sincerely trust that the fire
which so recently destroyed a portion of the Canadian Puget Sound
Lumber Company's yard will have the
effect of pointing out to the civic
authorities the necessity of having a
powerful fire steamer on the waterfront. Why such an innovation could
not have been made before passes the
comprehension of the ordinary person, but there can surely be no just
reason why this much needed appliance should be dispensed with for
the future. When Victoria reaches
the zenith of its prosperity with the
whole of the water-front one mass of
factories, warehouses, etc., there will
be no delay in providing the proper
fire-safeguards, and the installation of
a fire-steamer now would but forestall its arrival by a very few years.

HER TWO COMPLAINTS
Edward, the colored butler of a lady in
Washington, had recommended his mother for
the position of cook, but when the applicant
came the lady noticed that she was not
very   strong-looking.
"Do you suppose you will be able to do
the work, Auntie? You don't look very
healthy."
"Yes, ma'am, I is able; I ain't nuvver been
no ways sickly in my life—ain't nuvver had
nuthin' but smallpox an' Edward."
For Each and Every
Occasion

is known on all the four continents as a passport of
healthful reliability. There is no other Champagne
on the market today that can show such strong
proof of its superlative quality and popular appreciation as Mumm's Extra Dry. Order from your
dealer and see that the bottle bears the rose-
colored capsule. Ask for Mumm's at your club,

The Most Wonderful

If you know anything about the
different carpet weaves you'll
hardly believe this is a Brussels
when you see it. We submitted
a perfectly lovely design in a
fine Persian Rug to one of the
leading English makers and
asked him to make a Brussels
like it. The result has amazed
us. The unique design and rich
colouring are faithfully reproduced and yet the price is only
$28 for a rug 3x3]/. yards, and

book and lyrics were written
M.  S.  McLellan,  who  is  the
author of such divergent successes of
the past as "The Bells nf New York
and "Leah Kleschna." In his latest
undertaking, Mr. McLellan took the
French farce, "Le Satyre" for his
basis and adapted it to the American
stage. The score was written by
Ivan Caryll, the brilliant composer of
the Gayety Theatre, London, and
whose works have been known for a
dozen years of uninterrupted success
there and in this country. Messrs.
McLellan and Caryll worked to good
purpose in their first association, and
brought forth a piece that has distanced such phenomenal su*:c.*sse.s as
"The Merry Widow" and "The Chocolate Soldier," and what 15 more, it
is entirely an American product.on.
Klaw & Erlanger have seen to the
staging of it. They do everything on
a scale none can equal, but they have
outstripped themselves in this instance, for the same taste and artistic
appeal that were outlined in story
and score have been carried forward
in their production of the same. Such
harmony of colour and taste in en
semble have never been revealed on
our stage and is one of the distinctive
qualities of the presentation.
The story is told in three acts and
as many scenes and is a picture of
unrivalled beauty. To tell this tile
calls for a company of artist-; who
can act and sing. The music is given
with all of the subtle beauty by the
Pink Lady orchestra, which comes
from the New Amsterdam Theatre,
New York, and is travelling with the
company to see that this detail is a
feature.
In the cast will be found such
clever people as John E. Young. Olga De Baugh, Marguerite Wright
Octavia Broske, Josie Nntropidi, Minnie Jarbeau, Raymond Bottomly,
Harry Depp, Georgie Majerona,
George Reed, Jack Ryan, Alfred
Fisher, John J. Scannell, and the pink
of perfection chorus.
The seat sale for this remarkable
engagement opens today. In addition

Correspondence
THE  WATER  QUESTION
Victoria, May 9, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—I claim the right to let the
public know how things stand in the
matter of water supply. The story
will disclose great carelessness on the
part of those inside the city hall. 1
do not for a moment think the mayor
is to blame; he has been mayor for
only a fourth part of a year, but during all that time hc knows there has
been great dissatisfaction with the
water. He never expected all this
trouble; I pity him.
Someone wrote in the daily papers
that there were pigs on the Lake
and no notice was taken. I had reason to think these were wrong and
tried to get someone to go out to
the Lake and report. I offered to
pay for a hack that one might go on
a Sunday afternoon and take a member of his family to accompany him;
I should pay the hack and at least
his daily wage at his business. For
some time I could get no one to go.
It is not every man who could report
on questions like this. Eventually I
found the assistance I wanted, and I
got revelations much worse than I
expected. 1 reported to the Health
Officer, who was from home for a
full month. He had an interview with
the mayor. The conversation was behind closed doors. From the enquiry
it appeared to me when our Water
Commissioner required a large extra
supply of water, hc never by himself
nor by deputy got anyone to inspect
the Lake. For a considerable time
pigs have been there and, I suppose,
pig-killing, has been going on on the
Lake shore. The mayor, when he
was publicly told this, commendably
prosecuted one of the pig men, but
he said nothing inside the City Hall;
he did not ask the Water Commissioner "Why in the world did you
not know this?" Pigs are big brutes
and cannot easily hide themselves. As
to the burial of cat fish, the information came to me in my own house,
and I give it as I got it. It looks to
me horrible in thc year 1912. I asked
my informant if she had seen the
stinking cat fish and she replied:—
"Yes, tons of them, to be buried on
the banks of thc Lake."
No one would expect people to
come to live here with such filthy
water. If the Water Commissioner
had said publicly there had been a
blunder, but we will put it right as
soon as possible and get as pure water
as is to be had; Sooke water you
will get by and by, we hope, in the
meantime we will get you good water,
well and good, but instead of this the
Commissioner says he cannot get this
water without consulting the ratepayers, and that will take a month
or two.
I believe all weakly constitutions in
the City have suffered by the inevitably very frequent homeopathic doses
of impure water, and but for mismanagement this need not have happened. The most recent opinion by
experts is that boiling the water does
not free it of danger of using it.
I will semi a copy of this letter to
the  Health  Officer.
lt may interest readers to know
that the wrigglers on Elk Lake are
young mosquitoes. Mr. Raymur
knows how to kill them. There are
none on Goldstream water.

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
Cruising
By Bohemian
a have just returned from a week's
cruise during which the good ship
"Venture" of the Union Steamship
Line, has carried me in ease and comfort something like 1,000 miles, and
as I want to make this article practical I may as well start out by saying that the total cost of the trip including transportation, tips, drinks,
and all necessary expenses did not
exceed $35.00.
As I was away exactly a week it
will be seen that this works out at
$5.00 per day inclusive. It would be
difficult to put up at any decent hotel
on the coast at a lower rate, so that
on the ground of advantage it must
be seen that the man who travels a
thousand miles, visits ten canneries,
gets a view of coast scenery and
mountain ranges which cannot be excelled anywhere in the world, recuperates after fatigue, has an opportunity to study the marvellous development whicii is taking place at every
accessible point, and gets in touch
with Northern British Columbia at
the moment of its awakening, and all
this for $35.00 has made an investment which is far more profitable than
the most roseate speculation in real
estate.
1 doubt whether there are a dozen
people in Victoria who have figured
out how enjoyable and economical a
holiday they can take in this manner.
Among many advantages it possesses
this that once you leave Vancouver
you are out of touch with thc world.
There is at present no telegraphic
station North of Vancouver, with the
single exception of Campbell River,
so that one can be sure of perfect
isolation and perfect rest. Indeed by
the end of the week 1 began to get
quite curious to know what was going on in the world.
It had been a week of basking in
the sunshine of lounging on deck, of
gazing at blue skies, snow-clad mountains, and forested coast line. One
had had no time, or at any rate on
disposition, to think about the big
busy world that lay beyond. Wall
Street might have had a panic. The
Presidential campaign may have
come to a sudden standstill. Another
Titanic might have sunk, or building
might havc commenced on the Spencer burnt area for all we knew, but
none of these things worried the
lucky passenger on the S.S. Venture.
We slept, and read, and eat three
good meals a day, with snacks between, had an occasional game of
bridge, watched the spring salmon
jumping in many an inlet, went ashore
at a dozen calling places, to pry into
the canneries, to decipher archaic inscriptions, to study totem poles or
to collect Indian curios, all of these
things we did and enjoyed in the doing, but never a thought of stocks
and shares, of buying and selling, of
dollars or dimes. We had paid $35.00
to get out of the world "far from
the madding crowd," and we got
there.
So much for one's general impression of the trip. There are two practical features which stand out and
which arc worthy of comment: The
first is the remarkable development
which is going on everywhere. No
matter where we touched, whether at
Campbell River, Alert Bay, Hardy
Bay, Shtishartic, Smith's Inlet, Beaver,
Kivcts Inlet, Bella Bella, Bella Coola,
Naiiiu, Kimsquit, or Ocean Falls, at
every point there was unexpected activity.
The canneries were opened up for
thc season, the manager and his men
had gone North, some lucky beggars
accompanied by their wives, whose
care ancl attention would make the
northern wilderness "blossom as the
rose." Huge boats were being hauled
out, nets and seines got ready, at
every cannery was the rattle of sheet
tin being rapidly converted into cans;
but while this may be an ordinary experience it was certainly unusual to
lind so many people going north on
other business, mostly land surveying
and land settlement.
It was equally surprising that in
half the places of call the talk was of
townsites. No fewer than five survey
parties were operating at Hardy Bay,
in anticipation of what is as certain
as the seasons, the establishment of
a great Oriental port at this point.
Tt is four years since I first predicted
that Hardy Bay would take precedence of every other place near the
north of Vancouver Island. Since
then my prediction has been very
widely accepted, and is now certain
of realization. No other port can
compare with it for security and access, and things are moving more
rapidly than most people are aware
of.
Townsite lots are being* sold at
Campbell River and at half a dozen
other places, notably at Bella Coola.
Waterfront land is being* purchased
at continually advancing rates for
townsite purposes. All this portends much settlement, in the near
future. At Bella Coola and Kimsquit
the excitement is in connection with
railway building. By one route or
the other a railway will reach the
coast within the next few years. Sir
William McKenzie has endorsed this
view. I have always supposed that it
would come down the Bella Coola,
but high authorities declare that there
is a better pass out to Kimsquit. Be
that as it may, there is no doubt that
the whole district is waking up, that
it has attracted the attention of investors, and that shrewd men are
getting in as fast as they can "on the
ground floor."
I wish I had space to say something of the beauty and the attractiveness of this northern country.
The Coast from Seymour Narrows
up is indented by a series of deeply
cut fiords, the waters of which are
as a rule as clear as crystal. These
fiords are fringed ,by beautiful forests, alternating with the precipitous
mountain sides of the Coast Range.
A little further back one sees the summits of that range, sno\.-covered and
capped in several places -with immense glaciers. During the beautiful
weather we had the effect of the sunshine on the Mountain Range and
the waters of the fiords was indescribable, it was a veritable chiaroscuro; a revel of natural colour.
This is a land of "great silences,"
and one'can hear the dip of a paddle
for nearly a mile. It is a land of many
Indians fast dying out, and the vanguard of a great population of white
men just coming in. Tt is a land
■which is emerging from primitiveness
to commercial and industrial activity
and before we know it the frontier
line will be moved live hundred miles
further north and 250,000 square miles
will have been added to the busy
world.
Auother practical feature to which
it is impossible to do justice is the
skill antl the kindness of the Captain, officers and crew. Captain Park
is the very essence of kindness and
the pink of courtesy and there is not
a man on the boat who does not take
his cue from the master.- From the
moment I joined the Venture until I
left it there was nothing but consideration and prompt attention to every
need of the passengers.
The boat is like a floating home,
well kept and well found, and is
withal an excellent sea boat. While
it was fairly rough in Queen Charlotte Sound I do not think one passenger suffered from "mal-de-mer."
The passage through the Sound takes
three hours, all the rest of the voyage was perfectly smooth.
I hold no brief for the Union
Steamship Co. and I imagine the last
thing they would expect is a "write
up," but simple justice compels me to
speak of so splendid a trip and to acknowledge the treatment I received.
As to the country, the hospitality
nf the people, and the attractions of
Bella Coola and Kimsquit, in particular, I can only say that I am making arrangements to spend my summer holidays in that neighbourhood.
What is a "Desirable"
Immigrant
By C. B. S.
The answer to this question depends
on so many things: (1) The individual; (2) The actual price of land;
(3) Its climate; (4) Its people; (5) a.
Natural, and b. Social surroundings;
(6) Life and sport—embracing all
other details too innumerable to mention; (7) Compensating draw-backs
judged by accepted standards.
In short a country judged by an individual as a land of promise and favourable opportunity—that individual
will answer "Well I am." Small blame
to the Jew who believes honestly that
Jehovah selected him—we Christians
might argue otherwise.
We have heard so much about undesirables and unfortunately criticism
seems to outweigh unbiassed opinion
on this point if print may be accepted as the standard—it is so easy to
find fault but do we ever sufficiently
consider what amount of "mess we
have made of it?" When we get the
opportunity to put things right ourselves. There is a good deal of truth
in the old saying that the onlooker
sees most of the game.
"The very spot for me," the individual might say, or, if a happy couple
or community, "Yes, the very spot
for us." Further acquaintance might
alter first impressions vvith the result
of a move on, or the goose-swan instinct gain the day added to, perhaps, vvith the feeling of fatigue, we
have wandered far enough aud so the
square peg tumbles into the. round
hole; here success or failure must depend very much on adaptability to
local surroundings.
British Columbia at the moment is
a debutante at her lirst ball who has
been born with a silver spoon i 1 her
mouth, she has many eligible partners
to select from but social conditions
deny her polygamy, whicii does not
appear to be practically the ca.*>c next
door; it would seem that she must
make up her mind whether to take a
decided step or play the coquette
with the two; if she makes .1 decided
choice it would be well for her to remember that "the old friend is the
best friend" a once popular refrain.
Now as the rivals which is the desirable immigrant the first for comparison are t'he Briton and American, what are their characteristics ?
The average Briton has a keen sense
of home and has come with the idea
of making himself a home, of miking
friends, of settling on the land and
keeping in harmony with the privileges and prejudices of those he is
coming among, in fact he is very
much in sympathy with them already,
he has no wish to be a renegade, he
may be a bit of a prodigal but that is
largely because he has been crowded
out of the Old Country, which he
leaves with many regret's. The average American has little sense of
home, he comes with the idea of taking up a piece of land until he has
worn it out and then pushing on and
putting his profits to good account
in his own interests which are not in
common with the land he is likely as
not to impoverish even as he has
most successfully ruined it in the
United States, he has no object in
making friends, his nature has become nomadic the soil will gain no
hold on him, harmony with the privileges and prejudices of the people
will have no interest for him, he sees
attractions in virgin soil where he
can employ his agricultural implements, sow a few dollars and reap
more, possibly his inducements may
be of a negative nature and his d—d
democracy has left a nasty taste in
his mouth, besides which he does not
care to face the music and take up
the white man's burden settle the affairs of Mexico which are clearly his
duty—he played the renegade in casting off the government of the Old
Country (though no one would blame
him for leaving it to make a home on
the American continent) and now he
wants to run away from a government which he and' his immediate antecedents made for themselves.
To employ an old chestnut "when
you are in Turkey you should do as
the Turkeys do"—we don't say Turks
or Turkish—from what we have heard
of Turkish customs the less said of
them the better; but does British
Columbia want to be inundated 'with
settlers from across the 49th parallel
with their dictatorial manners and
bearings, impirical—not imperial—
ideas of "lick creation" when they
are not fit to lick an honest governor's boots.
British Imperialism can afford to
be dispassionate and even in the
guise of a dear old domestic he can
find cover for the ugliest duckling,
but it is not altogether attractive for
the other members of the brood to
be cursed with the vermin that the
ugly duckling brings in the shape of
specimens labelled I. W. W. and whatnot; then too the uglier the duckling
the more discordant is likely to be
its quack. This simile has its still
more ludicrous side when we come
to think ^of the precocious ugly one,
under the influence of the idea that
veni, vidi vici the process of absorption let us suppose) it quacked out
"Oh! won't you come and play with
me" or some other appropriate air;
with the result that the whole brood
chorused "Reciprocity be d—d." It's
only a lame duck after all.
New Anglican Cathedral
One Million Dollars required to
build the new Anglican Cathedral,
Victoria, B.C., also Bishop's House,
Rectory and Cathedral Hall. A
cathedral worthy of the Capital City
of British Columbia for the free use
of all, for all time and the honour
and glory of Almighty God.
A scheme to raise the sum required
is respectfully suggested in the letter below, a facsimile of which has
been sent to the head office of every
bank having a branch in Victoria ancl
other cities and towns in British
Columbia.   Letter as follows:
Victoria,  B.C.. May, 1912.
To the President, Vice-President and
Directors of the Bank of Montreal.
Gentlemen,—As you will see by the
above announcement, the large sum
required,to carry out this great work,
I respectfully submit the following
scheme for your approval, namely,
that you subscribe on behalf of your
customers the small sum of one-fifth
per cent. (20 cents on each one hundred dollars) on the total amount of
deposits belonging to them in your
hands at last balance; this would subscribe a substantial sum to the fund.
Surely your thousands of customers
who trust you with these large deposits would approve of your giving
a small subscription on their behalf
to carry out this noble work, and,
when looking at the new cathedral,
could say with pride and pleasure:—I
subscribed to that beautiful building
through my bankers.
To this scheme your shareholders
can find no fault, because any man of
business knows that it is only by
your judicious use of these large deposits you are enabled to pay such
good dividends. As to the payment
of the same I respectfully suggest the
following, namely, in four equal instalments, two this year, say July and
October, and two next year, say April
and October, 1913, payable at the Victoria Branch of the Bank of Montreal
to the credit of Rev. A. J. Douall,
Dean of Columbia, Rector of Christ
Church, and Chairman of the Cathedral Committee.
Trusting you will fall in with this
simple scheme to obtain such a splendid result,  is the  earnest prayer of,
Yours faithfully,
E. B. TAYLOR,
828 Courtney Street,
Victoria, B. C.
Kindly   acknowledge   receipt,   and
oblige, E. B. T.

BRITISH COLUMBIA ELECTRIC RAILWAY
A move has been made by the British Columbia Electric Railway
pany, which may mean the company and the Greater Vancouver
committee getting together in the matter of a consolidation of
chises. This subject has been under discussion for some time,
a little while ago it seemed hardly probable that an agreement
d be reached, since the company was firm in its refusal of certain
itions suggested by the city. Now that tlie company has made
tative offer, the committee thinks it shows the company is prepared
something toward getting the matter definitely settled to the
faction of all concerned.
Briefly the company proposes: Straight five-cent fares on all
except interurban, to go into effect on January lst, 1915, with
-year franchise, or if the company is given a 30-year franchise,
rate of fare will go into effect as soon as the agreement is signed;
resent tickets, except school children's tickets, to be withdrawn,
pany will construct up to ten miles of tracks each year during the
)f the agreement, all tracks inside the city to be permanent.
Disputes to be Submitted to a Judge
Disputes on location of new lines to be referred to a judge of the
erne Court. Disputes on running schedules, which will be sub-
id, also to go to a judge of the Supreme Court. Company will
15 per cent, on net earnings to the city and other municipalities.
: authorities must agree not to subsidize other competing com-
:s or run tramways, motor busses or similar vehicles themselves.
and municipalities to aid company in having consolidated franchise
rmed by the provincial government.
The tram committee has considered this proposition, but it will
.me days before they and the officials of the company confer in
•d to the matter. The suggestions made do not altogether meet
the approval of the committee.
The committee suggested that a general proportionate reduction
ade on interurban fares; that instead of 15 per cent, on the net
ngs, the city and municipalities receive 1 per cent, more than
•esent on the gross earnings, and that the straight five-cent fare

agreement, ancl that the franchise be given for twenty-five years.
Mr. R. H. Sperling, manager of the company, points out in reopening the matter, that the company is ready to further negotiate,
but it wants to know the maximum demands to be made by the city,
that it may be seen that the company will not suffer financially.   It
does not want other demands  to be made during the course of
negotiations, which will not allow time for due consideration.   ^Y__en
the city states definitely what it wants, the company will be prepared
to state how far it can go.   The outlook is now that the company ancl
committee will be able to agree on something, for the points of difference are not very divergent.

journal, again emphasized the necessity of mixed farming in Western
Canada.   The man who plowed hundreds of acres with power and in
fact did everything by means of power, ancl then left the land till the
next crop was clue, was an exponent of landlordism, said Sir William.   For months, not a living soul would bc seen on this land.   That
was being done by a large number of farmers.   They were all intent
on making money rapidly ancl growing nothing but wheat.   That was
not the proper way to settle such a great agricultural country as
Canada.

WATER SUPPLY
Victoria, B. C, May 3rd, IQ12,
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—There is a rumour going
the rounds that the B. C. Electric are
about to purchase the Esquimalt holdings at Goldstream for the purpose
of  supplying the  Saanich  Peninsula.
It is well known that the B. C. E.
Co. have large holdings there and it
would be impossible to settle Saanich
closely unless the people there were
sure of an adequate supply of water
and, since the B. C. Electric are extending their system through Saanich,
it is manifestly to their interest to
have this part of the country closely
settled, so that the rumour has a
great deal to substantiate it.
If this rumour should prove true
and the B. C. E. Co. should purchase
the Esquimalt Water Co., Victoria's
chance of securing cheap water of
first-class quality will be gone for
ever and future citizens of Victoria
will wonder what kind of ignoramuses
lived in Victoria at the time this property could have been secured.
In discussing the water question
with various citizens, I find the following arguments advanced against
the city pur-chasing the Esquimalt
Water Co.:
That there is not sufficient water to
supply the city now, let alone future
Victoria.; that the Goldstream water
is not good water; but the argument
which seems to find most favour with
the working man is that the Esquimalt Co. is trying to hold the city up
and that those in favour of purchasing have been bought up by the Esquimalt Co. Ex-Mayor Morley gets
the credit of suggesting this latter
argument. As for the other arguments, everyone knows that Gold-
stream is a mountain stream uncon-
taminated and therefore of the purest
and best water on the Island, and I
understand that the Esquimalt Water
Co. used thirteen million gallons per
day last year to supply power for
the B. C. Electric. There would
therefore be abundance of water in
Goldstream to supply Victoria, if the
city was four times as large as she
is now.
When the city reaches the dignity
of one hundred and twenty thousand
she might take up the Sooke Lake
proposition, or by that time the city
may have been able to clear all the
fish out of Elk Lake and dredge the
swampy places, buy up the watershed and place the waters of the lake
in a different category than they are
at present. During the summer the
water supplied us from that source
is neither fit for man or beast. The
smell of rotten decaying fish is so
pronounced during the hot weather
that even after it is boiled and filtered,
one feels like holding one's nose and
drinking it like a nauseous medicine.
The Sooke Lake water is well known
to be full of wrigglers and is swampy
(flavoured, and the cost of getting it
to the city is sufficient to embarrass
the financial standing of our city.
If Goldstream waters are acquired
by the B. C. Electric, then there is
no other alternative than Sooke Lake,
bad water and heavy taxes, and then
a lot of people will wake up and wonder what was the matter with them.
(Signed)       ANDREW WRIGHT.

135,000 bushels or 29 per cent. The
merchantable quantity of that crop

cent. Ontario's crop last year was
13,760,000 bushels and that of the
three Northwest provinces 24,043,000.
The merchantable yield of corn last
year was 84 per cent, of the crop, of
buckwheat 84 per cent., of potatoes 80
per cent., of turnips and other roots
85 per cent., and of hay and clover
88 per cent, as compared with last
year's percentages of corn 84, buckwheat 87, potatoes 77, turnips and

healthy and thrifty state and denoted
by 100 was for horses 96, milch cows
92.58, other cattle 91.53, sheep 93.40
and swine 94. Only in Prince Edward Island for cattle, in Nova Scotia for milch cows, in Ontario for

Indeed, viewed in this aspect,
only a reasonable precaution to
all that the chirographist can

department the Editor of The
imposed the severest tests, sub-
g  the    hand-writing    of well-
[l persons entirely unknown to

and a recent arrival.   He is pre-

will avail themselves of what
enuine privilege.
RULES
All persons wishing to consult
must enclose a specimen of
writing, consisting of not less
six lines written in ink on un-
paper. A portion of a letter is
better than copied matter. It
be signed with their own name
it, but there must be an initial
om-de-plttme    to    identify    the
answer, which will appear in the next
issue of The Week.

must be accompanied by a P. O.

velope should be indited "Hand-writing."   Absolute privacy is guaranteed.
REPLIES
BAT—Eager and impulsive, your good intentions often outrun your discretion. Egotistical and selfish, with a strong temper, you
are withal, generous and straightforward.
Critical, your views are too narrow, thereby
your judgment is apt to be inaccurate, air
though you are observant and quickly see
the point of anything. Humour is not marked artistic taste is poor. Constructive ability,
power to talk and argue logically and also
to theorize are all indicated. Originality is
present, and energy too. Close attention to
detail is not your forte, yet you are particular as to dress and personal appearance.
Great power of affection and self-sacrifice are
shown, the latter despite the selfish trait.
Moral sense is fair, you have' plenty of courage and tenacity.
DASH—An excellent sample. Fairly observant, fond of literature, artistic and with
constructive and executive ability; used to
the command of men and positions of responsibility. Moral and religious feelings are
strong, sense of honour and truth are good.
Temper placid and equable, but dangerous if
roused; a reserve of strength is well marked.
Energy is fair but ambition is weak. Good
business head, plenty of common sense. A
distinct sense of humour and a fondness for
sport.

MINING IN LILLOOET
This week saw the arrival, of numerous mining men in Lillooet and
also the departure of several for the
Bridge River and Caldwallader sections. Now that the snow is so rad-
idly disappearing in that locality
there will be a steady influx of those
interested in mines and mining, for
according to all reports the interest
being taken in Lillooet mining propositions in outside points. Already
several prospecting parties have taken
to the hills and others are outfitting
in Lillooet nearly every day. With
these experienced men searching
throughout the district this year will
no doubt witness several new and important discoveries.

A SURPRISE PARTY
We have the surprise beautifully planned,''
said young Mrs. Westerleigh, to the guests,
"and Frank doesn't suspect a thing. I think
he has even forgotten that today's his birthday. Hc will get home from the office about
seven o'clock. Then he always goes upstairs
to take off his coat and put ou his smbKing
jacket for the evening:    When he is upstaii s
This shows why the famous
"IDEAL" Spiral Spring is more
restful than the sagging, "hammock-
like," woven-wire kind.
Note how springs supported from the ends sag hammock-like in the
centre, compelling an unnatural and tiresome position of the body.
The "IDEAL" Spiral Spring cradles the body comfortably and buoy-
antly, inducing sleep by the complete relaxation which it permits.
Each of the many coils yields independently, according to thc weight
placed upon it—molding gently and elastically to the curves and contour
of the body. Sagging or rolling to centre is impossible.

I will call out suddenly, 'Oh, Frank, come
down quick! The gas is escaping." Then hc
will rush down here, unsuspecting, to find
the crowd of friends waiting for him."
It went off exactly as planned. Westerleigh caine hoivc at the regutar hout and
went directly upstairs. The guests held their
breath while Mrs. Westerleigh called out
excitedly, "Oh, Frank, come down quick. Tho
gas is escaping in the parlor!"
Every light liad heen turned out, and the
parlor  was   in   perfect   darkness.    There   was
a rapid rush of feet down the stairway, then
a voice said, "I don't smell any gas."
"Betted light the jet," Mrs. Westerleigh
suggested  tremulously.
There was a sputter, and suddenly the
room was flooded with light. Everybody
screamed.    Thc hostess  fainted.
For there in the centre of thc room stood
Westerleigh, attired only in a natty union
suit, with a fresh pair of trousers over his
arm.
Birthday parties still form a forbidden subject of conversation at the Westerleighs.'

The Week's Rumours and

pat there is no question about

Ise the fact so extensively.
pat there is no truth in tbe rumour

lat   the   Sarah   Bernhardt   who

lig, and the best motto for the

* *   *
there is something wrong in
Ition with the charges imposed
ptonia hack drivers.
nobody seems to regulate this
I, and Victoria is the only city
Ich the authorities fail to pub-
|e authorised tariff.
* *   *
the English custom in compel-
■ne owner to tack a tariff card
the hack is quite as good as
Vmerican customs which are be-
[opted in Victoria.
* *   *
|i a dollar and a half for fifteen
es' use of a hack would appear
■excessive, unless compared with
}neral cost of living in Victoria.
It the reason the Provincial Gov-
|nt  engaged   an   American   en-
to   superintend   the   work   at
|cona Park is that no Canadian
eer would undertake  it at  the
Canadian Engineers do not

* *   *
the pigs in the neighbourhood
Lake will not bc "pigs in
any more.
* *   *
what everybody is now ask-
I'Why they were allowed to re-
pigs in clover" so long."
That it is unreasonable to complain
about cat-fish being buried on the
shore, surely it would be worse to
leave them in the lake.
* *   *
That the only radical remedy for
this evil would be to have a civ'c
cemetery for cat fish.
That the humourous aspects of the
water question are by no means exhausted, that is if the consumers are
willing to view it in a humourous
light.
* *   *
That it will take Sooke water a
great deal longer to reach Victoria
than it took Birnam Wood to march
to Dunsinane.
* *   *
That it is cheap to libel people when
the only penalty is an apology.
* *   *
That real reformers are careful
what weapons they use in their warfare.
* *   *
That Barnum has surprised some
people by coming through with the
deposit for costs, and when the whole
affair is over there will be a still
greater surprise.
That the City Council would have
done well to spend that $30,000 on a
new jail long ago.
* *   *
That the designs should include an
isolated cell for the periodic drunks
who regularly invade our hospitals.
That the Vancouver wholesalers
have captured the northern market, to
judge from the absence of Victoria
freight on north-bound steamers.
That the Todd Cannery at Beaver
is the best on the Coast, south of the
Skeena.
* *   *
That the entrance to the harbour
is blocked by the rock that damaged
the Vadso to the extent of many
thousands of dollars.
That it would cost less than one
hundred dollars to blow it to
smithereens.
* *   *
That the Fiords between Bute Inlet and Ocean Falls surpass in pic-
turesqueness and grandeur those of
Norway.
* *   *
That no photographic artist has yet
done justice to this magnificent
scenery.
That the golf tournament was in
every sense a perfect success, though
it contained several "packets of surprises."
* *   *
That the Victoria players literally
covered themselves with glory, and
will retain the championship here for
a long time to come.
* *   *
That the members of the St. Andrew's Society would be glad to get
the financial statement for the last
two dinners.
* *   *
That if there is a deficit they are
naturally anxious to pay up, and if
there is a profit they are quite ready
to "blow it in."
* *   #
That it would be interesting to
know who is responsible for the brilliant idea of a B. C. Cricket Association.
* *   *
Tbat it would no doubt interest the
influential gentlemen who kindly consented to allow their names to be
used to boost it to know that the organisation has been repudiated by the
Victoria Club.
* *   *
That as far as The Week can learn
uo Cricket Club of repute has joined
the organization.
* *   *
That this can hardly be otherwise
seeing that all the influential clubs belong to the Pacific Coast Association.
+   *   *
That the whole thing looks as if
"some person or persons unknown"
are trying to get into the limelight,
and other persons well and favourably
known are having their leg pulled.
* *   *
That the Kootenay Ministers who
object to militarism are all "high protectionists" in the matter of defence.
That there is not a very wide distinction in principle between their attitude towards "the soldiers of the
King," and that of Mr. Tom Mann.
* *   *
That there is however this difference that he has got his deserts.
That it is only a step, and a short
one at that, to the anarchistic policy
of the I. W. W., but it is doubtful
whether these "intelligent" gentlemen
have sufficcient intelligence to realize
the fact.
That the Viotoria Trades and Labour Council excludes religion, but
the Vancouver Trades and Labour
Council admitted the Ministerial Association with open arms.
That within the last few weeks
three brave police officers of B. C.
have been shot down in cold blood
whilst discharging their duty.
* *   *
That the public have shown a fine
appreciation of the devotion and nobility of these men.
it      *      *
That General Lew Wallace wrote
the epitaph of such for all time when
he said, "Where duty loses a good
servant honour gains a hero."
* *   *
That it was a pity that Miss Agnes
Deans Cameron's lecture on the
Peace River country in aid of the
Titanic Relief Fund should have attracted so poor a house.
* *   *
That the lecturer was at her best,
and her address was of special interest to those amongst her audience
who had visited the Far North.
* *   *
That Mr. W. H. Rust will receive
a hearty welcome from Victoria, and
the firmer the position which he
takes up, the longer will the welcome
last.
* *   *
That his experience in Toronto will
doubtless have taught him that there
is only one way in which to deal
with refractory Councils.

THE Staggard Tread Tires
are the most economical you can
buy because the double thickness
and quality of the riding treads equal that
of any two ordinary tires.
Their chief value, however, lies in the protection they afford both passengers and car in checking
every tendency to slip or skid on any kind of wet or
slippery road or when making sharp emergency turns.

Townsite
HOPE
Rich in Fruit and Timber Lands; the Place of Vast Water Power; the Bustling Railroad Centre;
Good Hotel Accommodation; the Great Future Factory Town; the Anglers' Starting Point;
the Big Game Hunters' Mecca; the Ideal Inland Summer Resort.
THE LAW OF LOCATION
is one of the greatest factors in the ultimate success of COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT.
The Geographical Position of HOPE and the wonderful Natural Resources which back it up
are bound to MAKE HOPE.   Keep these two Important Facts in your mind:
t
/.—HOPE has all of those Natural Assets which are instrumental in the upbuilding of a large town.
2.—HOPE will have Cheap Transportation, as it is at the head of navigation on the Fraser River.
Three Transcontinental Railroads will run into HOPE, namely:—The Kettle Valley Line (C.P.R.), which will, no doubt, in the natural course of
events connect the Crow's Nest line, making a new Main Line. The Government has granted a subsidy of $10,000 a mile for 50 miles of this Line, starting
at HOPE. Contracts will soon be let. The V. V. & B. Railway (G. N. Ry.)—Work will be started at once on this Line. The C. N. Railway, which is
already graded into HOPE.   Trains will be running by lst of July from Port Mann to HOPE.
Prominent business men and Government Officials have shown their foresight by investing in HOPE. You can do the same—the price and terms on
our lots are easy—within reach of everyone. Make your dollars work for you. If you had bought lots in Winnipeg or Calgary a few years ago you would be
independent today.
OPPORTUNITY knocks hard at your door. As you read this Opportunity is yours to invest in HOPE—Use it. The secret of success lies in the
making up of your mind at once; when your judgment approves—then act—don't procrastinate. Before taking over the Agency to sell property in HOPE,
we inspected the property ourselves, and were very well pleased with what we saw.   We recommend HOPE as a good investment.
Lots from $200 up. Terms: 1-4 Cash,
Balance 6,12 & 18 months.
Size SO x 125
The Dominion and Provincial Governments have subsidized the C. P. R.
to the amount of $450,000 to build a traffic and railway bridge across the
Fraser at HOPE, which will cost at least a million dollars.   A great part
of this money will be spent in HOPE
