OMINATING    CONVENTIONS
—During the past week nominating
conventions have been the order of
Iday, ancl of the night.    Both parties
japidly getting their champions into the
and apart altogether from the purely
leal aspect of the contest it is extremely
eying to find public interest so thor-
lly aroused.   Not since 1896 has there
anything like the enthusiasm which
Iharacterized even the 'earliest stages of
lampaign.   It is also certain that there
lever been a stronger set of candidates

It is not easy to excite any keen

lembued with all the enthusiasm of

P. R. for about twenty years.   He is
Ial candidate for Brandon, and will
ttedly  justify  the   wisdom  of  the
too rarely adopted, of securing the
:st possible candidate whether he rein the electoral district which nomin-
|m, or not.   No doubt, it is better to
li local man where a suitable one is
pie, but it is folly to throw away a
even in defence of so admirable a
int.   At the last Federal election the

endorsation of his record.   He is

in spite of the repeated declara-
that gentleman and his friends that
|d not again contest the seat.   It was
out in these columns last fall that

[ency which he used as a warming-

ly ancl unselfishness of Mr. William

It stand the ghost of a chance this
time. In Comox-Atlin an excellent candidate has been selected in Mr. H. C.
Clements, who in 1904 represented West
Kent in the Federal Parliament. Mr.
Clements resided in Prince Rupert for more
than a year and is therefore well known in
the Northern part of the constituency. He
has already commenced a tour in the
Southern district, which comprises the
populous centres of Alberni, Wellington,
Parksville, Union Bay, Cumberland, Comox ancl Courtenay. Mr. Clements is
easily the strongest candidate whose name
was submitted at. the convention; he is a
typical Ontarian, a politician to the fingertips ancl a fair platform speaker. Even if
the Government acts so unfairly as to defer the Comox-Atlin election, Mr. Clements
can still win, although in this connection it
chances against Mr. Burrill. The Conservative organization in British Columbia has
started out with the intention of returning
a "solid seven"; six of these are practically
assured—the seventh, Comox-Atlin, can be
won under any circumstances if the campaign is vigorously ancl continuously conducted from now until polling day and the
best platform speakers available placed on
the ground. It is an enormous district, far
beyond the ability of any candidate to cover
during the next few weeks; the executive
should at once map out a plan of campaign
and press it without "let" until the battle
is over. No doubt they are fully aware of
the conditions, and in any event they recognize that it is the one district of all
others the party throughout the Dominion
is anxious to win.
MUTILATING   THE   FLAG
must not be forgotten that at the last election Mr. Templeman gave his positive
pledge that there would not be another deferred election in that constituency. In
Vancouver Mr. Cowan has been compelled
to retire for business reasons and the nomination will probably go to Mr. Tisdale,
one of the most consistent Conservatives
in the Province, a gentleman widely respected ancl one who has rendered great
public service over a long term of years.
His opponent, Mr. J. H. Senkler, is a popular man ancl will give him a hard run, but
Mr. Tisdale's majority will probably be as
large as that of Mr. Cowan at the last election. In New Westminster district the old
standard-bearer, Mr. J. D. Taylor, will
have no difficulty in defeating the "Cin-
cinnatus" of the local Legislature, Mr.
John Oliver, who, despite all his excellent
qualities is not of the calibre of a Federal
member. In the Interior it was hardly expected that Mr. Goodeve and Mr. Burrill
would be opposed; their enormous majorities at the last election, since which they
have both risen to the highest rank of parliamentary life, are likely to be doubled this
time. It is doubtful if either of their
opponents will save his deposit. At the
time of writing the only nomination is a
Dr. McDonald of Vernon who will try his
THE DEADLY PARALLEL—The
masterly address of Premier McBride at Goldstream which is reproduced in the current issue of The Week,
deals comprehensively with almost all the
most important aspects of the Reciprocity
Agreement. There is, however, one phase
of it which the occurrences of the past few
days and the disingenuous attitude of the
Victoria Times have brought into prominence, and that is the prospect of cheaper
living and its relation to wages. The Times
has told its readers that if Reciprocity is
established there will be a considerable reduction in the cost of living in British
Columbia and that this will not have any
effect on wages. Speaking in Indianapolis
on the Fourth of July, Mr. Taft told his
audience in specific language that it would
not reduce the cost of living. Perhaps,
however, the Victoria Times, like other advocates of Reciprocity, has no respect for
the judgment of its author. The only way
in whicii the cost of living can be reduced
in British Columbia as a direct result of
Reciprocity, is by tlie importation of American produce, such as fruit, vegetables
and meat, including poultry. Clearly, if
we are to import farm produce from the
States we are bound to reduce our own
production to the extent of our importation.
The supreme object of our Government and
of every organization in the Province is to
promote land settlement ancl the agricultural industry. How it is possible to do
this and at the same time to open wide the
doors for the influx of American farm produce is a matter which no one has yet explained. Suppose it is put to the people as
a straight issue: "Which do you prefer,
the present cost of living, or a reduction
of 20 per cent, in the same (ancl surely
this is a liberal allowance) at the cost of
checking agricultural production in your
own Province and retarding the growth of
population without which it is impossible
to attain that industrial and commercial
prosperity for which everyone is so
anxious?" The two things cannot go together, and it is a new theory that permanent prosperity can be built on any foundation other than the development of our
own natural resources. Passing from the
cost of living to the question of wages,
The Week pointed out in last issue that all
past history shows the impossibility of preventing wages from rising ancl falling with
the cost of living and there is no more
deadly parallel to be found today than that
whicii is shown by a comparison of the
cities of Canada, especially in the West and
those of the United States. Here in Victoria, in Vancouver and in all the great
cities of the West we have prosperity,
plenty of work, high wages, contentment
ancl peace. In all the great American
cities to the South there is depression, unemployment, reduced wages ancl reduced
cost of living. If it were possible to reproduce before the eyes of Canadians an accurate picture of this deadly parallel, no other
argument would be needed to demonstrate
what The Week has so persistently contended, that dear ancl cheap living are not
absolute but relative terms, and that the
first and most direct result of any cheapening of the cost of living will inevitably be
a lowering of wages.
ANEW LEAGUE —Miss Dorothy
Davis has come from London to
further the interests of the Colonial
Intelligence League for educating women.
The President is H.R.H. Princess Christian
and an influential committee stands behind
the organization. The object of the League
is to bring out from England, ancl place
in suitable employment in British Columbia, a number of educated women who are
prepared to engage in suitable work, and so
help to solve the difficult problem of domestic labour. These women are not expecting easy jobs, ancl are prepared to undertake anything for whicii they have sufficient physical strength. A few have already come ancl are in great demand as
gardeners; a few others are living in country homes ancl sharing the whole of the
house-work with the mistress. Miss Davis
has received hundreds of applications and
is confident of being able to do permanent
work. She feels keenly the lack of a home
or hostel from which to conduct her operations, ancl to provide shelter for such
of her charges as may be temporarily out
of employment through sickness or other
causes. She also wants to establish a
League Farm where women may carry on
special work such as poultry raising, market gardening, fruit-growing ancl dairying.
The bulk of the funds for both these purposes will bc furnished by tlie London committee, but Miss Davis will be glad to receive some local assistance, as an evidence
of the interest taken in the movement by
the residents of Vancouver Island. The
press has placed considerable space at her
disposal and if the numerous ladies who
are so anxious to secure English help in
their homes are really in earnest, they will
render Miss Davis sufficient financial aid
lo ensure tlie success of the scheme. THE WEEK,  SATURDAY, AUGUST  19,  1911
Most people have been wondering
what the enigmatic sign so much in
evidence everywhere in the city "Do
Jt In Victoria," may mean, and I
have been approached by many for
an explanation of the same. It was
not, however, till this very morning
of writing that I knew myself what
it was all about, but now that I know
I feel so pleased with the whole idea
that I want to make it as public as
possible. I have therefore no hesitation in reproducing verbatim the
printed communication which I have
received, and wish to express a sincere hope that the organizers of the
forthcoming carnival will be well repaid for their public-spirited enterprise.
"Do It In Victoria
"Victoria is to have a business
men's fair, the first of the kind in the
history of the city. The objects as
outlined in the communication issued
by the 'Do It In Victoria' Carnival
Committee are to boost business in
Victoria, to advertise the city, and to
bring for the week of September 11-
16 upwards of 10,000 people into
town. The fair will take .the shape
of a carnival and will continue day
and night. Many special attractions
have been planned to draw visitors
and entertain them while they are
here.
"Not only will the entertainment be
for the visitors but for the people of
Victoria. Prizes will be announced
for many events all of which will be
contested locally and particularly in
the down-town business centre.
"Already the |Do It In Victoria'
Carnival Committee have made arrangements for transportation facilities from a number of Puget Sound
cities at special rates, and negotiations are being carried out with
steamship and railroad companies in
seven other cities. These arrangements the committee will have perfected by the end of next week ancl
full particulars will bc published.
The committee has decided that
$5,000 shall be set aside for competition prizes and entertainment. The
'Queen of the Fair' competition is
one of the leading features and will
be made a most interesting event, the
winner being decided upon the public vote.
"The 'Do It In Victoria' Carnival
is now being widely advertised in
seventeen cities and the opportunity
for local advertising given by the annual fair of the British Columbia
Agricultural Society, which is to be
held the previous week, is an advantage not to be lost sight of. The carnival in no way conflicts with the
British Columbia Agricultural Society's fair, but rather helps it.

T was much interested on Thursday afternoon last in watching a test
being made on Government and
Johnson Streets of the new White
gasoline truck. It loaded down at
the Cameron Lumber Mill with six
tons and a half of lumber, the truck
itself being only a 3-ton machine. The
lumber was then hauled out to tlie
new skating rink on the way to Oak
Bay and the test was eminently satisfactory in every respect to those
who were interested spectators. 1
learnt from Mr. Musgrave, the local
manager, that he is getting the trucks
into the city now iu 3-ton, iV<-ton
and 1500-lb. trucks, and that he is
leaving today for San Francisco, Cal.,
to arrange for speedy delivery of
White trucks for Victoria and British
Columbia, as the demand is exceeding
by far their expectations. There are
very many people in this world who
will welcome the day when the
patient horse, whom we have so often
pitied groaning under an over-load, is
universally superseded by these capable and reliable machines.
* *   *
It is not long since 1 wrote pleading for the installation of receptacles
for rubbish on some of our principal
streets.    So far  I  have  seen  no re
sults accrue, though I have had several letters on the subject from men
and women who have approved of
my idea. 1 am now in a position to
quote an example showing not only
the untidiness, but the positive clanger of having scraps of paper Hying
about our highways. Of course,
everybody knows that paper has
caused many driving accidents owing
to its unpleasant habit of blowing up
into an unwary horse's face, but perhaps it may not havc occurred to my
readers that in some conditions it becomes as dangerous to the pedestrian
as that plague, which, like the poor,
is always with us—the orange peel.
The other day I was on Johnson
Street and just ahead of me were
two ladies who might be described
"motherly." They were just the
type of woman who might be expected to say "Come to my arms, my
child." In other words they were
decidedly stout. The pavement was
wet and right in their path lay a
piece of paper waiting for the inevitable. It came. My lady stepped
on it, the treacherous paper slipped
and the result was—catastrophe. Now
when a lady of substance does happen to sit down unexpectedly, she
does so in a most indisputable manner, and this is what happened. On
endeavouring to rise, she again trod
ou the paper, and again she fell. The
obvious moral is that the receptacles
should be provided and then ladies,
stout or otherwise, may wend their
ways without fear of such ridiculous
contretemps.
*   *   *
My attention has been called to an
odour which, not to put too fine a
point upon it, might be called a smell,
arising from a curious little hole leading down into the Post-office on the
Courtenay Street side. On being informed of this, I immediately walked
round to have a sniff, and I must
confess that at the time of my adventure in this regard I found "nothin' doin'." However, my informant
assured me most positively that he
and others had frequently observed
the odour in question, and so I venture to call the attention of the Post-
office authorities to the complaint, in
order that they may take steps to
verify the truth thereof.    All that I
can tell them is that it would appear
to arise from the very bowels of the
Post-office.
* * *
I have often wondered why it is
that in this country there is such a
prejudice amongst all hotel and restaurant-keepers against putting water
on the tables at which their customers sit. Of course, there is always a large ice-water jar and the
waiter will get you as many glasses
of the refreshing beverage as you desire. Also, the majority of customers
drink tea, coffee or milk. At the
same time it is a great nuisance to
have to order water whenever wanted, and there is absolutely no reason
why large pitchers should not be
kept on each table. The same complaint applies in the case of mustard.
I have frequently noticed that mustard appears to be an almost unused
condiment in Canada, whereas I was
brought up to believe that it could be
applied to almost any kind of meat
with the exception of mutton, and
consequently it is somewhat of a
weak point with the

Optimistic Victoria
Victoria has grown so big with optimism there is no room for th|
pessimist. The pessimist—the "moss-back"—is the only man tha
flocks here alone now.
He is like Rudyard Kipling's feline, "The cat that walked bl
himself. But his days are numbered. Victoria now knows enough tl
bury her dead and the pessimist—the cat who walks by himself—wil
be catalogued away in the archives of the past with other ancienj

Victoria's head optimist is the man who can see double.    But
has no eyes in the back of his head.   He can't see backward.
He'll walk around the corner at any time to smile, and he'll gi
like a Cheshire cat when he considers he might have bought thii
very corner for one-quarter the price it commands now.
Yes!    He  smiles broadly from ear to  ear,  nay, from here
yonder, when he thinks of the fat cheque he has just planked dowl
for it.
"A rosy view for mine," says Victoria, for she realizes that hi
citizens are now abreast of the times.   They may have to gnawf

Most people, even if they are not
classical, enjoy seeing pictures which
deal with the days of ancient Greece

the advantage of having read about
the personages depicted, most thoroughly appreciate the privilege of
witnessing the scenes on the screen.
Both alike were charmed early this

this picture was excellent and the
general effect superb.

A striking innovation in motion
photography was introduced this

was almost bizarre and thoroughly
enjoyed by all who saw it. A pathetic picture, "Her Mother's Love,"
showed in graphic form the lengths
to which a mother will sacrifice herself for her child's happiness.

A Magnet for Colonials
Written Specially for the  Week
by Gilbert Malcolm  Sproat
1 pictured, in my last, Francis
Hincks' foray into the British Colonial Service, for a period of fourteen years from 1855, as the administrator of certain negroid communities. This success stimulated applications, to the Home Government,
from other Canadians in the East,
though the service, really, is poor and
hard. But there is glamour in Imperial Service, and this, I suppose,
caused several British Columbia officials, already in the Service, "to apply for continued employment elsewhere" for instance, two men of gubernatorial ranks, Douglas and
Trutch, Chief Justice Begbie, Attorney-General Woods, and others.
Already, however, the Home Government was "on a fresh track." Its
policy was to get rid of the Colonies,
and meanwhile, to join, or federate,
them, in order to lessen bother and
correspondence, consequently the
waste-basket yawned for such applications as the above. (Woods got
a billet, through a marriage relative
in  London).
I daresay few of your readers realise the fact of this "riddance" policy.
Cobden, for the great party behind
him, approved in speeches, the Confederation Act for Canada, in the belief, and hope, that it would lead to
separation. "Britain." said he "would
still have the trade." This notion of
the Colonies being a "drag," actuated for a time, many leading politicians, and not a few statesmen.
The practical head of the Colonial office, Sir R. G. W. Herbert, said to
me, the Agent-General, that, if we,
here, desired to join the United
States, the "office" would not say
"Nay." What tended to modify this
madness—as I found when lecturing
throughout the counties—was the attitude of many of the common people,
stiffened by the effects of emigration
—family ties with the colonists—improved oversea communication, and
cheaper postage, but that is not the
subject I  now deal with.
The ambition of Canadians, who
find their own country's public life
too meagre, and realise the meagre-
ness of the Imperial colonial service,
impels them, now, preferentially, towards the British House of Commons, though a member may have
to spend any amount, from £500 to
£_',ooo per annum, according to the
number of "clubs" in the constituency he is expected to help.
Thc Home electors, at any rate in
the unceltic voting zones, do not
seem to care much whether a candidate, approved by the "party," is
English, Scotch, Irish, Welsh, Colonial, or East Indian, or a lately naturalized foreigner. Curiously, among
the Lowland Scotch, a native son,
risen from the ranks, is not, on that
account, much favoured in his own
locality. "Come unca'd, sits unserved," say the women who there largely govern. I think the English, with
their long experience, are the broadest-minded. "Give the man a show"
is, in many constituencies, a prevailing modern sentiment. Hence, though
■Colonial eminence does not help a
candidate, Colonial birth, or past
Colonial residence, is no bar to his
candidature, or to his success in the
House. Thc latter, however, is a dull
assembly, and duller now than ever,
though enlivened by thc presence of
some Irishes. If "Home Rule" remove these, there will be less mirth.
Certain it is, and but natural, that
thc "Mother of Parliaments" values
the presence of men who, while not
impeding     business,     can     furnish
amusement. Equally certain is it that
lawyers, Lowland Scotchmen, Colonials and retired Proconsuls, as a
rule, fail in this requirement, which,
for them, perhaps is just as well, as
the House does not take those
seriously in anything who overdo the
welcome function of amusing it.
Some of the above mentioned
classes may have humour, but the
ordinary Englishman's notion of humour is peculiar—very—witness Mr.
Punch. The lawyer is too precise,
and the Proconsul too dignified. The
imported Colonist, for his part, has
his own quality of jokes—"humours
turn with climes"—and he cannot
shed the effect of his past, etc.
Widening the view a bit, in conclusion, 1 may add, that the Lowland Scotchman, who, racially, may
be described as English, more imaginative perhaps, and, doubtless
from his different history, more generally cautious, has the habit, perhaps as a further result of long training in the severe practicalities of life,
of disconnecting the exercise of his
humorous faculty from all occasions
of business, more particularly business of a public nature. Postulating
much from this, however, might mislead. My experience is, that the
Lowland Scot, in his ways and times
of relaxation, has a finer relish of the
saltness of humour than has his fellow-Southron. He is apt to be noisier
in  his mirth, which viewed ethnolo-
gically, may be owing to the larger
"Norse" element in his make-up.
Often have I, studying human
types in the smoke-room of an ancient London hostelry, with its oaken
settles, and chair for the oldest frequenter, wondered at the silent English tradesmen, who would nod,
rather than speak, even if I suggested
another "beer." A similar company
in Edinburgh, according to my experience, might throw about the ball
of conversation on Church, Army,
Physic, Law, with enlivening quips
and cranks.
Yes, speaking, not of intellect but
of temperament, your simple Englishman, though I should not like to say
it in public, is a trifle dullish, and,
what a British M. P., hailing from the
Colonies, has to realise, is that dull
men love a tonic, which, possibly, he
himself cannot supply, of the kind
wanted, unless, happily, his own tern-
permanent has been improved by a
dash of the sparkling Gael.
Even that may fail, as in the case
of the half-Gael, Gladstone, who did
not amuse the Commons, whatever
else he did. Our own country being
in the making, and its people on the
make, the question may be reserved,
whether in the mixey-maxsey of their
public life they are not, in some respects, duller than the English, The
French element, in our midst, is an
incalculable advantage, as will be recognized when they spread more.
Folijambe's Mother--_/l Cricket Story
Written Specially for the Week by Clare Battle
"Folijambe's    mother    is    coming
down    for   the    match,"   announced
Wally with the air of one communicating cabinet intelligence.
"Who's that?" I queried lazily.
"Well, I rather fancy they call her
Mrs. Folijambe," he returned in his
drawling man-of-the-world voice. So
I shied a cushion at him, and at that
he sat up and began to be interesting.
"Mrs. Folijambe, the noted beauty,
I mean, of course," he said. "My dear
boy, where are your eyes? Don't you
ever read anything but 'Chums' and
'Punch' and the works of G. A. Hen-
ty? Why her photograph's always
appearing in the smart papers—lovely woman with fair hair and a kind
of far away expression. Folly's got
her in about twelve different attitudes
in his room—he's as proud as Punch
of her—just get him going on the
subject and you'll see."
"What's his father like?" I asked.
I wasn't really interested in the
Folijambes in the least. But I knew
from past experience that once Wally
was wound up he was bound to go
on and on like Tennyson's brook, and
then some, as the Americans say.
"My dear chap, haven't you heard?"
Wally's tone of superior contempt
for my ignorance of the doings of the
Folijambes was a bit trying.
"No," I said, "I haven't heard. In
between meal times I sometimes
manage to do a little studying—just
to keep up the reputation of the
school, you know. It wouldn't do if
we all spent our time reading the
papers."
"Quite so," hc replied calmly," as
a matter of fact practically all I know
about the Folijambes comes from the
very simple reason that their place
down in Devonshire is next to that
of one of my uncles, and when I went
down there last Autumn 1 heard all
about it."
"About what?"
"Oh, it's beastly scandal and all that,
but it seems that old Folijambe
drinks like the mischief and leads
Folly's mother the dickens of a life,
and Vanthorne—you know, the explorer man—is crazy about her."
"Good gracious, Wally," I said,
"you could make a small fortune as
a contributor to the Yankee papers.
You might send them over a column
every week on 'Doings in High Life'
—it  would  take  like  hot  cakes."
"Don't try to be funny," he retorted with dignity. "I'm just telling
you all tllis because you seemed to be
interested in  thc  Folijambes."
I grinned at this, and he wound up
drawlingly, "That's about as much
as anyone knows—but all the same
it seems a rotten shame. Vanthorne's
an awful good chap—she's a ripping
nice woman, and there you are."
"You  might  write   a   novel   about
it," I suggested.
But just then the bell rang and we
bundled in to supper and Folly's
mother was forgotten, for the time
at any rate.
The day of the match dawned
bright and fair and, you bet, we chaps
were excited. Even old Wally who
generally takes things pretty coolly
seemed a bit off balance somehow.
Early in the afternoon he came up to
me in a state of great excitement.
"She's come," he whispered, waving
his hand vaguely towards the pavilion.
"Who—the Princess?" I asked.
For a certain royal personage was
visiting in the neighbourhood and
there had been some idea earlier in
the day that she might possibly put
in an appearance as she was staying
with the Poynters whose eldest kid
is at our school.
"No—stupid, Mrs. Folijambe."
"Oh," I said.
I felt a bit disappointed until I had
seen her, and then I forgot all about
the Princess. I'm not like Wally—
women don't interest me in the least
as a rule, but she was a top notcher
all right. She was wearing a white
dress made of some sort of soft silky
stuff and a big hat with a long feather
—and the way she looked at Folly
—well, it almost brought a lump to
my throat—and I'm not the crying
sort, I can tell you. You could see
he was just all the world to her,
though he had always seemed an ordinary enough kid to me.
Folly wasn't playing and they sat
together in thc pavilion. He introduced mc to her ancl she was very
nice, lt seemed she had been to
school with an aunt of mine—and so
we talked relations for quite a while.
But I didn't mind because Aunt Fan
is a very decent sort and always remembers me at Christmas, which is
more than I can say for all of them.
But she seemed a bit sad somehow,
and I found myself thinking of what
Wally had told me. She sat there
with a kind of far away expression
in her eyes—ancl I felt pretty sure
she was thinking of the explorer fellow. I didn't blame her a bit, for all
we fellows have been mad about him
ever since he came back from China
this last time—and he really has behaved awfully decently about autographs. She had a bag with her—a
big old fashioned sort of thing of
white kid lined with green, and presently I saw her open it and half
draw out a letter. Then she put it
back again ancl closed the bag, and I
saw her looking at Folly with such
a strange expression on her face.
Somehow I felt that there was something worrying her, ancl I thought
what a* pity it was that the kid wasn't
old enough to be of any help to her.
Then all of a sudden Wally came

racing up in a great state of excitement. He pulled off his cap to Mrs.
Folijambe whom he had met earlier
in the day, and said to me hurriedly:
"I say, Flounders,—(that's the name
they have given me ever since the
swimming match and the beastly
thing sticks like fun)—"Bristles has
hurt his hand."
It didn't convey anything to Mrs
Folijambe though she tried to look
concerned—any more than it did to
the other people sitting around us*
but to Folly and me it was just as if
a big black hand had suddenly blotted
out the bright blue sky.
For Bristles was our star batsman—and we knew that we had pre
cious little chance of licking the
Bamborough House boys without
him.
"Great Scott," I gasped, "how did
he do it?"
"Someone shut a door on it," said
Wally.
I heard Mrs. Folijambe give a
little wince.
"Can't he possibly play?" I asked.
"Lord, I know it must hurt like the
dickens—has he shown it to Mrs.
Summers?"
Mrs. Summers is our housekeeper
and jolly good sort.
"He was with her when I left," said
Wally, "and I heard her telling the
Head that he couldn't possibly use
it."
"Oh Bristles," I groaned.
Why, oh why, since he was evidently destined to meet with an accident
must it have happened on this of all
clays of the year? Why not on the
opening clay of the exams for instance—he wouldn't have needed a
magnifying glass to have seen a silver lining to the cloud then.
Suddenly  we  heard  a  cheer.
"What's up?" said Folly, straining
on his toes to see over the tall man
who sat in front of him.
"Why it's Bristles—goocl old Bristles," cried Wally.
Ancl there he was, the dear old
kid, marching up the field with the
rest of the  eleven.
Even in the distance you could
see that his face was a bit pale. He's
not a beauty, like Hamilton, of the
Fifth, he's just a rather fat little chap
with a round sandy head and lots of
freckles, but I can tell you we cheered
him that afternoon as if he had been
the  Prince  of Wales.
"Is he going to play with that
hand?" asked Mrs. Folijambe. She
was only a woman, you see, and I
suppose she couldn't be expected to
understand how a chap feels when
there's so much depending on him.
"You'll see," I told her.
Then she just sat ancl watched him.
And I saw a strange sort of puzzled
look come over her face as Bristles
took his stand before the wickets.
"How it must hurt"! I heard her
murmur half to herself—"how it
must hurt"!
And by and by, when I turned to
say something to Folly about the
way in which the other side was playing, I saw two big tears well out of
her eyes ancl trickle down her cheeks.
And then do you know—somehow
or other—I suppose it was a sort of

Iiis blessed heritage of liberty
we to exchange it and our
fortunate conditions for those
-.onditions in which we find
to criticize across the bounce? Our Liberal friends de-
iat the policy of the Conser-
party today is one of jingo-
1 talk of imaginary dangers of
lon. That the position of the
L-atives is sound and sane, that
Conservative conclusions are the
only ones that can legitimately be
drawn, we have incontrovertible proof.
We have as evidence upon whicii to
base our conclusions the authority
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier himself on the
one hand, and on the other President
Taft—that if ever there was a time
when argument against the possibility of annexation was most pertinent,
now is the time and the opportunity.
Did not Sir Wilfrid Laurier in studied language and set terms say to
the people of Canada when asking
them to endorse the National Transcontinental Railway project in 1903,
lay it down as an axiomatic principle
that the whole of this line would
have to be on Canadian soil so as
to remain independent of the United
States? And did Sir Wilfrid not then
say that "the best and the most effective way to maintain friendship with
our American neighbours is to be absolutely independent of them?' This
surely is a very strong argument
against the action of the Liberal government which now wishes to tie us
up with the United States and so interlock our trade with theirs that it
will be impossible for us to remain
independent of that country in trade
matters. And did not President Taft,
speaking in New York but a short
time ago, say that he wanted his American brethren to clear the way for
reciprocity, because reciprocity must
quickly be followed by closer political relationship and it was essential
to the prevention of a wider imperial
connection? We have here, then, the
warning of our own Canadian prime
minister on the one hand and that
of the president of the United States
on the other. Surely these were
enough to arouse every man and
every woman of Canada, to stir even
the most lethargic to recognition of
the inner meaning of this proposed
compact. Surely this should be sufficient to induce our Liberal friends—
if there were any Liberals left in
British Columbia—to come out as
Canadians and oppose this reciprocity
arrangement under the Conservative
flag. Surely it was time for them
to make such a move, after being for
sixteen years misled by their party
leaders. Did not they recollect how
they had been told in 1896 that if the
Liberals came into office, free trade
as they have it in England would
prevail—if the Liberals came into office, free trade should reign in Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific
shores? That was the great inducement held out by Liberalism in Canada in 1896, but today the Liberals
were found as staunch in their faith
as protectionists as the most ardent
of the Conservative party. The line
of demarcation between the parties
had become merely a sentimental
one.
Parting of the Ways
"To come down to the plain facts,
had not sentimentalism been carried
to an extreme, had it not merged into
hero-worship, and thereby and thereby alone Sir Wilfrid Laurier retained
his grasp of the reins of power?
Should such sentimentalism prevail
today, when the people of Canada
were called upon to answer a question which was in effect 'are you going to stand firm by the British connection, British liberty and British
free institutions, or throw these over
so as to pander to the many corrupt
influences arising and fostered in the
United States? I think that I may
say, in the first place that, whether
Liberals or Conservatives in this
country, the people of British Columbia will give me this much credit to
admit that in what I have striven to
do for British Columbia I have been
prompted by no selfish motives, but
have formulated and carried my policies with the aim that we shall have
in this province the home of a large,
a prosperous and a contented section
of the British people. And now I
should not be doing my duty did I
not do my level best in this crisis to
see that our beloved province in British Columbia stands as the stronghold of Conservatism, and, as a part
of Canada, more imperial than ever.
The Conservative conventions in this
province will be held in a few days.
We have candidates galore to select
the best men from, and in a few days
more candidates will be in the field.
Our organization is being perfected
and we shall leave nothing undone to
bring back to our chieftain, Mr. R. L.
Borden, a solid phalanx of seven
from British Columbia. But in addition to organizing, we want the people to come in with us—the men and
the women and the boys and girls
—so that we may leave no stone unturned that might in any way contribute to the brilliant victory that is
to be achieved. We want the ladies,
who dominate the homes, to advise
the men patriotically to vote right,
to vote straight, to vote for the continuity of the British connection. In
Victoria we can look forward witb
confidence to piling up a creditable
majority for our candidate—and it is
whispered that Mr. Barnard will be
that candidate—a majority to which
he can point with pride. The forthcoming election is brought on at a
most unusual time—the time of harvesting, and when the unusual presents itself in such events it must excite suspicion and careful investigation of the reason.
Complete Vindication
"The dissolution of the Canadian
parliament on July 29 was so sudden
as to greatly surprise the people of
Canada, who could not see the reason for such precipitate action by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, supposedly entrenched at Ottawa with a strong following, well disciplined. Yet perhaps Sir
Wilfrid was not as well satisfied as
he might be with his cabinet material,
or quite so strong as would appear
to the outsider. Must not his action
in dissolving parliament be taken as
a complete vindication of the position taken by the Conservatives ancl
those opposed to reciprocity. It was
the Conservatives who demanded and
insisted that such a question should
be submitted to the electorate of Canada, and it was the Conservatives
that had urged the government to
hasten redistribution so that this
question might be submitted fairly.
It was untrue as Liberals had
charged that the Conservatives had
been simply blocking supply in the
House at Ottawa; they had been
quite willing and ready to allow supply to pass, and the sudden resolve
of Sir Wilfrid to dissolve the House
was obviously due to other causes,
most probably growing dissensions in
the ranks of the Liberal party. The
hasty nature of dissolution was plainly evidenced and echoed in Sir Wilfrid's appeal of July 29—the weakest
document ever offered to the people
by the Canadian premier. That appeal was in reality nothing more than
a clumsy effort to shift responsibility
for the dissolution to the shoulders
of the Conservatives and was in striking contrast to the dignified and
logical address of Mr. Borden, published side by side with Sir Wilfrid's
and fully setting out the Conserva ■
tive position. In their hearts the Liberals wish that this ill-advised bargain to tie up the trade of Canada
with the United States had never
been entered into. The dissatisfaction that leading Liberals feel is well
set out in the very comprehensive
statement issued last February with
the names of such gentlemen as Sir
Edmond Walker, Sir William Mortimer Clarke, formerly lieutenant-
governor of Ontario, and other prominent men attached. They plainly
state that the government had no
mandate from the people to make the
bargain of reciprocity with the United
States and that to make the changes
proposed would check the present
unexampled prosperity of Canada;
besides they pointed out the great
danger threatened to Canadian nationality.
"Reciprocity is generally recognized now as threatening disastrous
effects to Canadian national welfare.
British Columbia is strongly opposed to it as shown by the resolution passed in the legislature on
February 13th, 1911, when there was
only one voice in opposition to tbe
condemnation of the proposed reciprocity bargain, that of Mr. Brewster,
so half-hearted a champion that he
did not divide the House to put himself on record. The reasons now advanced against reciprocity are now-as
strong as then, and if anything, accentuated. It is not a mere political
question; but a national one, in
which patriotic men of all parties
should combine to uphold Canada's
prosperity and nationality—and our
place in the Empire.
No Longer Suppliants
"There is no use in the Liberals
going back to ancient history and
stating that the feeling of Canada
was at one time in favour of Reciprocity—that time is past, and we no
longer need to be suppliants for an
outlet for our trade. We have a market for all we produce, and without
making sacrifices, things we have re
versed. The United States now needs
Canada's products, and we could have
well afforded to wait for them to cut
down their tariff without touching
ours in any way. We have a population today of 8,000,000 against 4,-
000,000 in 1879, while our export
trade which was only $60,000,000 in
1879, grew to $279,000,000 in 1910.
Our best customer is not the United
States, but Great Britain, and there
we have to face United States competition. In 1910 Great Britain took
our home products, $139,500,000 or
fifty per cent of our exports. In the
same year the United States took
only $104,000,000, or 37.3 per cent.
Under protection we have built up
in Canada a trade of enormous proportions: in 1879 it was $153,000,000;
in 1910 it was $693,200,000. In our
own province of British Columbia
trade has increased nearly $10,000,000
since 1909.
"There is no necessity for Reciprocity—Canada is progressing so well
that it is a great mistake to suddenly
disrupt our present channels of trade
for a visionary idea. Let us look
at it as a business affair. Do you
think if this Dominion had any important business to perform, it would
send Mr. Fielding and Mr. Paterson
to perform it? It seems to me that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was determined
to give Canada away he should have
sent two up-to-date and able Canadian ambassadors to confer with the
keenest wit, among 100,000,000 people. The people of Canada might
depend on it if the United States had
not got the best of the bargain they
would not have wasted a minute on
Reciprocity. The United States had
come to the end of its raw supplies
and what was more natural, more
necessary than for them to come to
Canada, and to come now at a time
when they felt that our own industries and institutions were not sufficiently developed to make it difficult.
Could anyone show a single instance
where the Americans, as good business men, had not wanted everything
for Uncle Sam? They were now in
a position where they must come to
Canada for raw material ancl if Sir
Wilfrid had only been patient for a
few years, the United States would
have been glad to take clown their
tariff and welcome Canada's products free, while Canada could have
played Uncle Sam's old game and
raised her wall still higher. (Prolonged cheering). We, in British
Columbia had had an illustration of
this when we awoke one day to find
that the logs from our forests were
going to Everett, to Bellingham, to
Blakely, and to Blaine, and that while
our mills were idle here, they were
doing a thriving trade over the line.
The result of the export royalty had
been a development of our timber industry four hundred per cent, and the
establishment of many thriving
towns.
Merciless Trusts
"If reciprocity were passed it
would not take many weeks to find
out what material losses Canadians
were suffering. It was all right to
say that we would get cheaper tobacco and cheaper this and that, but
under reciprocity we would pass into
the grasp of the most merciless
trusts, ancl moreover thc wages of
our working men would fall to the
level of those across the line.
The Premier went on to quote
from statements of Sir Wm. Van
Home, selected as a strong man to
build the C. P. R., who became a Canadian, and who would be recognized as a man now alive to the situation. What did Sir Wm. Van Home,
a good Canadian, although he had
no politics, have to say at this crisis?
He said:
"To my amazement ancl distress
and shame I now sec a magnificent
work of a generation faded away for
a vague idea or a childish sentiment,
the splendid commercial and industrial position we have reached ancl
our proud independence bartered (or
a few wormy plums, and I feel it
my duty to join in the protest that is
heard from every section of thc
country.
"Today we arc in an enviable position, with a commerce three times
as great, per capita, as that of the
United States, and without a cloud
in our sky save the one which has
just been raised. Does not common
sense tell us to let well enough
alone?"
If it had not been very much to the
advantage of the United States, that
nation would never have made over
tures towards reciprocity. It is all
very well to say that we can throw
thc arrangement aside at any time;
but knowing the United States as I
do, I fully agree with Sir William
Van Home in his view of the situation; and generally he is a man who
understands conditions in the United
States.   He says:
"The Weaker Party"
"Let us not run away with the idea
that if we make a mistake in this matter of reciprocity, we shall be able t_»
correct it at pleasure. We may not
be permitted to do it. It should be
remembered that there are such
things as vested interests with nations as with individuals, and corporations, and that the vested interests
of nations, real or alleged, arc terribly
binding upon the weaker party. When
Mr. Hill had extended his seven or
eight lines of railway into the Canadian Northwest—lines which have for
some years been resting their noses
on the boundary line waiting for reciprocity, or something of the kind,
to warrant them in crossing—and
when other American channels of
trade have been established, affecting our territory, and when the American millers have tasted our wheat,
and the American manufacturers have
got hold of our markets, is it probable that we shall be permitted to
recede? Not a bit of it. We are
making a bed to lie in and die in."
"Canada's aim," continued the premier, "should be to promote inter-
provincial and imperial trade—something that is being built up at present. With the trade lines running
north and south, it is bound to affect,
injuriously, our transportation from
west to east, and that means that the
freight rates instead of being lower
will increase. Then as to the Liberal
contentions,, that, reciprocity, will
lower the prices of food products, in
Canada—I venture to say that after
the first flush, when competition has
been stamped out, and many Canadians are forced out of work, prices
will be raised to as high or higher a
notch than at present. Most of these
things in the States are governed by
gigantic trusts, and we will scc them
taking possession of Canada, and
placing us under tribute to them. In
fact the whole scheme is an endeavour of the United States to control
Canada's natural resources.
"The farmers of Canada will suffer
from reciprocity ancl as to the Liberals' argument that a great field will
be opened for their produce in the
United States, President Taft, in Chicago on June 3, said: 'The only real
importation of agricultural products
that we may expect irom Canada of
any considerable amount will consist
of wheat, barley, ryu ancl oats. The
world price of these four cereals is
fixed abroad where the surplus from
the producing countries is disposed of
and is little affected by thc place from
whicii the supply is derived.
The  Fruit Industry
"Unquestionably British Columbia
will be greatly hurt in the prairie
provinces to which wc now export
our fruit. The province has done
much towards building up this industry, and last year the value of the
fruit crop was $2,500,000. With an
older industry, more cleared lands
ancl cheaper labour, Oregon, Washington and California will he able tn
send fruit into the prairies duty fre^
at a price that will seriously handicap British Columbia in spite of tlle
general better quality of our fru't.
At the same time it is very questionable that such fruit as oranges,
lemons and bananas, whicii are n t
raised in Canada will be any cheaper
as there is no competition to met
here ancl such industries are in the
hands of large trusts, which dicta _
prices. Vegetables and other agric '-
tural products, including eggs, po; I-
try and livestock will also be imported at the expense of our mix.-1
farmers.
"Supposing that the Reciprocity
Agreement was in force ancl it v, ;;>
decided to end it, Canada would bi
in the position of suddenly havir.;
to find new markets and trade would
be greatly disorganized. Canada iri
the last ten years, stands second ' 1
the list of countries in the increa •.

being Argentina with 132 per cen .,
while the United States only sho—f

No Frills or Furbelows
The following is a copy of a telegram received by us August ist, from
Vancouver,  B.C.:
"C. E. Berg drove Model "16" from
Vancouver to Seattle today, one hundred and seventy-two miles, in four
hundred and ten minutes, winning
one thousand dollars and beating
all previous records by sixty-five
minutes."
On receipt ot this message we
wired back for additional information
regarding the condition of the roads,
etc., and are in receipt of the following reply  which  is  self-explanatory:
"Road to Seattle fairly good condition. Several places being repaired,
therefore soft and heavy travelling.
Many hills. The road through the
woods for miles about eight feet
wide, curving in between large stumps
which necessitates slow travelling.
One ferry to cross. Customs examination by Canadian and American
officials. Private wager one thousand dollars. Time limit, eight hours.
Former holder of record, Peerless.
Time, seven hours fifty-five minutes.
No competitors. Berg time remarkable."
The "frills and furbelows" advertised by other makes of cars will
never take the place in the hearts of
the public and the users of the actual,
practical power, speed and endurance
of our cars. When it comes right
down to "doing a man's work" and
doing it day in and day out, no other
make of car can stand up and compete.
Taking into consideration the fact
that this car was delayed by customs
officials, and by having to cross the
ferry, also that quite a large amount
of road repairing work had just been
completed, making the driving very
difficult and hard, also considering
the fact that the road for a very long
distance was only eight feet wide and
very winding, the performance of this
Model "16" is truly wonderful.
The honour of holding the record
from Vancouver to Seattle has been
envied by alt makers in that locality.
The fact that one of our cars started
after the record, that it was able to
beat what had been considered a very
creditable performance by sixty-five
minutes, just about indicates the difference between the actual power,
speed and endurance of our cars and
most others..
The car whicii made this wonderful performance was a regular stock
Model "16" which had been in actual
road service for several months. It
was driven by the owner of the car
who is, of course, strictly an amateur.

RECIPROCITY
(Continued from Page 5)
help her keep up in the race. United
States manufacturers have invested
over $400,000,000 in mills and fac
tories in Canada where they can get
raw material cheap and in abundance.
Last year there were 100,000 cars
of grain, etc., sent out of the Pacific
provinces. Of these the C.P.R. took
59.6 per cent.; Canadian Northern
31.8, Grand Trunk Pacific 7.3, Great
Northern 1.3 per cent.
Under Reciprocity a great change
will take place and a very much
larger proportion will be diverted
from Canadian to United States lines
of railway. Undoubtedly this was
what Mr. J. J. Hill was thinking of
when he said after the agreement
had passed the United States Senate:
"If the Senate had voted against
the pact, it would have meant thc
beginning in England for such an Imperial Trade Union, as would shut us
out."
At Best an Experiment
"At the very best, the whole matter of the agreement is an experiment
—a foolish interference with the
country, wheu it is progressing at a
marvelous rate, and as the "Ottawa
Citizen" calls it a 'gamble'—the ill
results of which may be most disastrous to Canada.
"The people across the line are
jealous of our resources and it was
assured that if they, with their organization and their majority control
were given this measure of trade reform, they would sap the best of Canada and use it for their own interests. The people of Canada realize
this, and on September 21st they will
have no hesitation in casting their
votes for one King, one Country and
one Emoire."

HUDSON  BAY
distance from Churchill to Liverpool is 2,926 miles, and
Dort Nelson to Liverpool, 2,966 miles.   The Canadian govern-
lailway will probably run from The Pas, north of the Manitoba
Iry,   to   Fort   Churchill.   The   Temiskaming   and   Northern
lo Railway will probably be extended from Cochrane to James
more likely to some point on Hudson Bay.   These facts give
interest to any authentic information respecting the Hudson
jion.   Mr. R. W. Brock, the director of the Geological Survey,
Lanied Earl Grey in his recent trip to that territory, ancl made
jiotes of value.   The party left Winnipeg and travelled clown
River across Lake Winnipeg to Warren Landing at the
)f the lake, ancl from there clown the Nelson River to Norway
From that point the canoe route was followed via Hayes
|k factory.   By small steamer six hundred miles across Hudson
Hudson Straits were then traversed.
trge areas of land suitable for agriculture lie to the north.   Mr.
says that soil became more noticeable near Oxford House,
|iter no rock exposures were seen.   In place, artificial drainage
necessary to render the land fit for agricultural uses.   At
House wheat, barley, vegetables, small fruits, cucumbers ancl
] have been cultivated.   At York, potatoes and some vegetables
pen successfully raised.   But the area near Hudson Bay, while
suitable for ranching ancl dairying, is probably outside the
tr ordinary agriculture.
whole country from Lake Winnipeg to York is timbered.
Dther parts of the country, the forest wealth has suffered
Illy from fires. Where the original forest is preserved, merch-
I sizes may be expected in the upper portion of the district ancl
1x1 for some distance down. It seems unlikely that the timber
Ive of great value except for local purposes.
Brock gives an interesting description of Hudson Bay, which

at the mouth of Churchill River on a tidal lagoon enclosed
I ridges, that form a fine, well-protected, though somewhat
Icribed natural harbor. It lies within the barren grounds, but
■short distance beyond the northern limit of the forest. On
lies, a few feet above high tide, are dry sandy flats, parts of
Iraised beach.   Several other gravel beaches are found on the
the hills ancl up to their summits. These raised beaches are

irregular quartz veins up to a foot in width and a few small pegmatite dykes. From the physiography it is impossible to say whether
the bottom of the lagoon has a thick mantle of gravel, and thus would
.be easy to deepen by dredging, or whether it has practically a rock
bottom; but it is quite possible that it has the former. On Coats or
'Mansfield Island the sedimentary rocks of the lower Pakeozoic could
be seen.
Sagluk Bay, which is on the south side of Hudson Strait between
Cape Wolstenholme ancl Cape Weggs, is a fine harbor about 8 miles
long enclosed between hills about 500 to 1,000 feet high. The mouth
is about a mile wide. Soundings gave us ten fathoms of water over
.the bar at the entrance. The rocks' are gneisses and granite with
'heavy trap dykes. No other rocks than these Laurentian gneisses
and granites were seen until the Labrador coast was reached.
No economic minerals were observed at the points touched at on
the Hudson Bay ancl Hudson Strait, and little is known of the
mineral possibilities of this section as, except on the east coast of
Hudson Bay where some prospecting has been done on the iron ore
formation, the territory is still unprospected. The observations of
explorers, however, would indicate that there are opportunities here
for prospecting, and if anything is found there are no natural difficulties that would prevent mining. On the west coast of Hudson Bay
south of Marble Island, Tyrrell has found promising showings of
copper ore (chalcopyrite). Iron ore formation occurs along the
east coast of Hudson Bay and on the west shore of Ungava Bay, and
as previously remarked, the widespread occurrence of boulders of
iron formation makes it probable that it may be found at other
localities. Mica is being mined at Lake Harbor on the north side of
Hudson Strait. Graphite occurs in extensive bands to the south of
Port Burwell. Gold has been found at the head of Wager inlet, ancl
argentiferous galena, and molybdenite have also been noted.
On account of its great size and length of coast-line, a tremendously large territory is tributary to Hudson Bay. At present it is
unprospected, but when the railway is built to the bay, access to all
this territory will be comparatively easy and prospecting will no
doubt be undertaken. Having regard to the results obtained from
prospecting similar formations in Northern Ontario, it is only
reasonable to suppose that prospecting in the Hudson Bay district will
result in some gratifying discoveries.—The Monetary Times.
BY RAIL TO HUDSON'S BAY
Estimation of the timber along the proposed route of the Hudson's
Bay Railway was the main object of a party sent out during the summer of 1910 by the Forestry Branch of the Department of Interior.
The report of the head of the party (Mr. J. R. Dickson, B.S.A., B.S.F.,
Asst. Inspector of Forest Reserves) has just been published.
At intervals of three to six miles along the route lines were run by
compass at right angles to the route of travel.   Each forester worked
alone and covered, on the average, four to six miles per day.
Estimate of the Timber
The total number of ties available in the district traversed is estimated at 360,000; these, at 3,000 to the mile, would be sufficient for
about 120 miles of road. The saw-timber totals about nine and a half
million feet, board measure. Dead tamarack and the largest of the
close-grained black spruce could be used for pile timber. There is an
immense supply for fuel-wood ancl pulpwood, but a goocl deal of the
young timber is too small, as yet even for pulpwood.
Timber Killed By Fire and Insects
The chief reason for the comparative small supply of timber in
the district is the fact that fires have so often run over it. The greatest
of these occurred, respectively, eighty and forty years ago and few
parts of the region explored escaped these.
The attacks of insects have also caused much loss of timber in the
region.   Barkbeetles are the greatest offenders.
Prevention of Fires
The prevention of fire in this district is a problem of the greatest
difficulty. Throughout the region there are practically no inhabitants,
and the area is of such vast extent that, if a fire once starts, the chances
of stopping it, even with good patrol system, would be far from bright.
Indians in this region seem much more careful with fira than the white
men.
Rate of Growth
Some iittention was paid by the Foresters to the calculation of the
rate of growth of the different trees.
This was found to be slow, chiefly on account of the cold wet soil
which results from lack of drainage throughout the region.
How Fast Do Trees Grow
In one hundred years white spruce reaches a diameter of eight
to twelve inches, poplar of eight to ten inches and black spruce of four
to five inches.   Jack pine will not average six inches in diameter.
The author's conclusions in regard to the timber are not very
optimistic.
There is probably enough timber available to build the rough construction work of the Hudson's Bay Railway is as far as he permits
himself to go.
The topography, soil, vegetation ancl climate of the country are
briefly referred to, also the resources of the country in regard to
agriculture, minerals, fish, game ancl fur animals.
CANADA FINDS AND NAMES A NEW MINERAL
On the east coast of Bonaparte River, about half way between
Cargill ancl Scottie Creeks, in the district of Lillooet, British Columbia,
a new mineral was recently found. Little has been heard of the discovery, but it is recorded with due modesty in the latest report of the
Geological Survey Branch of the Mines Department. Mr. F. Sones.
Gold Commissioner at Clinton, British Columbia, forwarded the sample
to the department. It was made up of two specimens, one of which,
measuring four inches in length by two inches in thickness, consisted
of the mineral about to be described along with some scattered remnants of decomposed rock matter; the other specimen, a much larger
one, consisted for the most part of decomposed rock matter of a character like that just mentioned.   It has a schistose structure, but it has

Grand Trunk Pacific
Investors
The construction of the new transcontinental railway—the Grand Trunk
Pacific—is to-day opening up new towns that in the very near future will be
large and important cities. Just as the advent of the pioneer transcontinental
line—The Canadian Pacific—opened and built up divisional points such as
Brandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc., so will the new line of the Grand
Trunk make large divisional points of the towns we now  or:er for sale.
We have secured the agency from the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC RAILWAY CO. for the towns mentioned below and the shrewd investors who can
recognize the many advantages for investment in these towns at the prices of
today, will share in the large profits that will accrue as a result of their rapid
development. No other investment is so safe and profitable, and if you want
to get your portion of the wealth Western Canada's development is creating,
take advantage of this opportunity now before it is too late.
Prices of lots in all of these divisional points are $75, $100, $150, $200, $250
and $300 on easy monthly payments, no interest and no taxes till 1912, with a
5 per cent, discount for cash.
MELVILLE—The first Saskatchewan divisional point on the G. T. P. and
the largest new town on the line between Winnipeg and Edmonton. Located
in a rich agricultural district, an important railroad and distributing centre.
Melville bids fair to become one of the important cities of Western Canada.
WATROUS—The mecca of the health seeker, situate near the shores of
the famous Little Manitou Lake, and in the centre of one of the finest farming

BIGGAR—The opportunity of opportunities, located in the heart of a
wonderfully rich and fertile agricultural district, and with railway facilities that
guarantee a future, being not only one of the most important Grand Trunk
Pacific divisional points on the main line between Winnipeg and Edmonton, but
is the junction of the branch lines of the Grand Trunk Pacific to Battleford
and Calgary, which will bc hurried to completion at an early date. The C. P. R.
runs through Biggar, and all C.  P. R. trains stop there.
TOFIELD—The terminus of the branch line from Calgary, situate near the
shores of the Beaver Lake. The discovery of natural gas and of clay, and having
at its door several square miles underlaid with lignite coal, pfomise the development at Tofield of important manufacturing industries.
EDSON—The last prairie divisional point on main line of Grand Trunk
Pacific, and thc gateway to the Peace River Country. Rich in natural resources,
Edson lots fulfill every requirement for safe and profitable investment.
REMEMBER THE PRICES, $75.00 to $300.00, ancl terms of one-tenth cash

far decayed that its original composition is completely obscured,
little more than a residue of silica remains. It is not at all
ikely, hdwever, that the original of this rock has furnished the basic
stituent of the associated mineral.
The mineral occurs in the form of seams and scattered patches in
altered rock matter just described. Some of these seams attain a
:kness of nearly half an inch. In general they present a moderately
rse columnar structure; occasionally, however, the mineral is seen
tssume a delicately fibrous form. In the material at hand no dis-
t crystals have been observed, and the cleavage, although clearly
matic, is not very well defined. The mineral is readily friable, and
iks with a fine, subconchoidal fracture. It has a pearly lustre, and
:olour is white, modified by a delicate green tint; it is opaque, even
rery thin edges, and has a bitter, saline taste.
Before the blowpipe, on charcoal, the mineral swells and emits
bles of vapour, but does not melt, and ultimately leaves an infusible
s, which has no effect on moistened tumeric paper. When moist-
1 with a solution of cobalt nitrate and reignited the mass becomes
c. In the closed tube it yields a large amriunt of water, which
its neutral to test papers. It dissolves readily in cold water, yield-
a clear solution; after addition of ammonium chloride this solu-
does not give a precipitate with either ammonia or ammonia car-
ate, but when a solution.of sodium phosphate is added to;the
noniacal solution a copious white precipitate of ammonium-mag-
um phosphate'is thrown clown. The aqueous solution when acidu-
:1 with hydrochloric acid gives, with barium chloride, an abundant
te precipitate of barium sulphate.
The specific gravity of the mineral at 15 deg. 5 C. was found to
.757, and an analysis of selected material, which, however, still
:ained some included silica, gave the following results:—
Sulphur trioxide      34.52
Magnesia        17.15
Water      46,42
Insoluble matter (silica)        1.78
99.87
Omitting the included silica, it will be found that the composition
lhe mineral agrees very closely with that required for the hexahy-
\e of sulphur of magnesium, which hitherto has only been known
product of the laboratory. The agreement will be made plainly
lent by a reference to the following figures, in which column I.
lesents the composition of the mineral under discussion, and column
[hat required by theory for the normal hexahydrated salt:—
I. II.
Sulphur trioxide      35.19       35.09
Magnesia        17.48       17.54
Water     47.33      47.37
100.00     100.00
J As this is the first instance in which this salt has been recorded as
irring in a state of nature, this substance is entitled to be regarded
as a new mineral, and the Department of Mines has proposed the name
hexahydrite for it, in allusion to the six molecules of water which enter
into its composition.
Our only hope is that no one will lay claim to a prior discovery
and different name. Up to the time of going to press, Canada's
mineral remains as a new one, and its name is hexahydrite.
PROJECTED RAILROAD LINES IN THE WEST
An active railway construction programme is projected for the
Dominion generally and for Saskatchewan particularly, in the present
fiscal year. In Saskatchewan over 1,000 miles of new line will be
laid. Last year, this province led the others with total new track
amounting to 476 miles. According to the plans so far announced by
the three principal railroads of Canada, Canadian Northern will construct 330 miles in the province, Grand Trunk Pacific 342 miles and
Canadian Pacific about 350 miles, making a total of about 1,120 miles.
In addition to this new construction work, about 1,350 miles of new
grading will be clone.
The announced extensions of the Grand Trunk Pacific projected
this year for Saskatchewan are as follows: Melville to Regina, 70
miles; Battleford to Biggar, 50 miles; Regina to boundary line, 90
miles; Regina to Moose Jaw, 40 miles, ancl Young to Prince Albert,
90 miles.
Concerning the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific ancl the
Grand Trunk from ocean to ocean, President Hays, .who recently
completed a six-weeks' tour of inspection of the greater part of the
system, says the line will be completed in 1914. This is a year later
than the estimate made early in 1910. Mr. Hays explained that in
certain sections of the line good construction progress had been made
while* in other sections, owing to the difficulties presented by the
rough country and also by a scarcity of labour, construction has been
carried forward very slowly.
Goocl construction progress has been made on the sections of the
road running through the clay belt of Northern Ontario. The main
section is completed a considerable distance both east and west of
Cochrane, a divisional point, ancl the present terminus of the Temis-
kaming Railway. On both sides of the line there is goocl grazing and
farming land.
CUDAHY  PACKING  COMPANY  WILL  LOCATE
IN VANCOUVER
Mr. Patrick Cudahy, president of the Cudahy Bros. Packing
Company, was a recent ■ visitor to Vancouver. He announces his
company will establish a branch there. Mr. Cudahy had a. little
criticism of the railways to express. In his opinion they do not keep
pace with the progress of the country, amplifying his remark by
stating that they wait until the country develops instead of anticipating
growth. "It is all right to talk about railroads building up the country," he said, "but it was the other way round."

a great deal of attention paid
lthe "waist" of the shoe fitting
up close to the foot so as to give the
real support needed.
The shoes of today give evidence
of brainy designers who give both
practical and utterly farcical shoes an
attractive air and manage also to introduce some sensible ideas into the
extreme styles, and the result is a
"smart shoe" which will be well
shown this season unless Dame
Fashion lets out the seams and
length of the present skirts.
No shoes can be kept well shaped
if not drawn on trees when removed
from the feet, and wiped clean;
those of aluminum are very lightweight and cost from $1.00. They are
also of polished wood, but these are
heavier to handle.
White buckskin pumps will be, as
usual, extensively worn with white
and light summer dresses. These are
always attractive when kept clean
and that is easy to do with so many
cleaners in the market.
Ties of this leather are practical
and seasonable, but truth compels the
announcement that Oxford ties are
passe, except where the wearer is a
daring soul that will brave current
fashions and wear what she pleases.
Just now sashes and belts are important features and, worn as they
often are, with simple tailor dresses
transform the latter, by their amusing note of originality, into chic little
toilettes. The long ends attached to
many belts are worn with toilleurs,
both in the morning and afternoon,
and with all evening robes. Some
are wide, some narrow, some are
dark, some pale colored. They may
be of plain or fancy ribbon, or piece
material, and the ends are finished or
left untrimmed. Some are finished
with tucks.or drawings, in most fanciful ways or with fringe. Orientally-
draped scarves of multi-coloured
stuffs are wound closely round the
figure, the ends crossed at the side
and falling low over the skirt. Sometimes they reach from the  chest to
below the hips.   They, of course, only
suit a pretty slight figure.
*   *   *
Coats to suits are of many lengths,
the limit in long styles being about
36 inches, the most general lengths
24-26 inches, the novelty (Eton and
bolero) lengths from just under the
armpits to the waistline, and it may
be said here that these little coats
are increasing in number very rapidly; they give a street finish to a one-
piece dressy costume that would
otherwise seem unsuitable for general wear, and are in no way burdensome or uncomfortable, but are attractive, chic. It is quite likely that
the new or modernized Eton and bolero jackets will be in demand for
"separate coats"—they are quite as
coquettish as the scarf and far more
practicable.
Skirts are still straight and narrow
in effect, but there's a tendency, in
the high-class lines, to slash them at
intervals at the foot presumably to
add to the walking comfort of the
wearer. In some of these slashes are
set fan plaitings, quite in old-time
style. Other skirts are plain and flat,
back and front and at the sides, to
just below the hips where close, flat
plaits in a narrow panel effect are inserted.
There is also a tendency to elaborate skirts with braids, bands, folds,
buttons, fancy panels and gores, fashion having evidently tired of the
plain, bag-like styles of the past season or two. Ankle lengths at present prevail for the street, but it is
asserted, on excellent authority, that
the "sweep" or little train is on its
way back to favour both for street
and hous,e wear.
Fancy effects in both coats and
skirts are plainly discernible among
the important trends. Coats in many
instances show pointed backs and
fronts, postillion outlines, "swallowtail" shapes and other irregular lines.
As mentioned, skirts are also fanciful
in some of their details, especially in
the one-sided arrangements frequently seen. And yet there remains, in
spite of this, a simplicity that is very
attractive.
Sleeve changes are noticeable and
are in line with the returning fashion
of long gloves. One of the newest
sleeves is about three-quarter length
and is as wide at the bottom as at
the plain top. Dressy coat sleeves
end anywhere between the elbow and
the wrist and ample width is a feature of all. This permits them to
slip easily over the demi-length dress
or waist sleeve and the long wrinkled
glove.

.ECTION PROMISES—The Hon.
William Templeman is an estimable
man and in that position for which
itural talents qualify him, or to use
sical reference, "in that state of life
■vhich it pleased God to call him," he
have secured and retained the respect
i fellow-men. Mr. Templemen him-
as said time ancl again that he is no
ian. At the last Federal election the
•ia constituency took him at his word
int him to "Coventry," for if a man is
olitician" certainly Ottawa is no place
im. There are, however, times when
Pempleman tries very hard to be a
:ian and at no time so hard as during
:ctoral campaign. The very cheapest
pmmonest stock-in-trade of a profes-
campaigner is a gaudy exhibition of
in promises, and this is where Mr.
leman shines. It is a safe bet that at
3tind of the electoral trumpet Mr.
leman will repair to his den, open a
drawer, dig up his old electoral band
ments, repolish them and forthwith
ence to blow. Thus early in the pre-
.ampaign he has trotted them out.
first is a breakwater to Brotchie
; the next is a new Post-office; the
harbour improvements; no doubt
are others to follow. But what the
would like to know is why Mr. Tem-
ti so persistently falls back in his old
sf promises. It is several years since
imised us the Brotchie Ledge break-
and brought the Hon. William Pugs-
re to bless the project. It is several
since he was forced to admit that the
t Post-office was inadequate for the
ements of the public and should be
.d by a new one.   Ancl yet so far
Ig has been done beyond the purchase
litable site on Douglas Street by some
Templeman's most intimate friends
()s this was a very necessary prelim-
step as in the case of the Drill Hall
id as such the public are prepared to
it, but they would like to hear some-
Idefinite about the next step. As to
ur improvements,  while Victorians
be called impatient since they have
:lamouring for Harbour improve-
for many years and have shown that
in be thankful for small mercies—
small mercies—they would like to
why the Lobnitz dredge has not been
work and whether the explanation
ll by The Week and confirmed by
.minion Government engineer is cor-
nd, if so, what the Minister has to
out it. After all, the role of a poli-
is not an easy one to fill by a man
"no politician," ancl who is painfully
bus of the fact.
I'l
IDWER   SHOW—The   Week   has
been trying for several years to solve
a problem ancl is as far as ever from
factory solution.    The problem is,
Victoria people studiously avoid the
Flower Shows?   There was a dis-
flowers in the Drill Hall this week
would  have   driven  an   American
azy with excitement, ancl yet at no
ere there two hundred people in the
ind the total paid entrances for two
d not reach 1,000.   In a city which
a population of 50,000 this is a dis-
ecord.    Many suggestions have
ade to explain such a state of affairs
[ithout being able for a moment to
hich is the correct one, or if any one
|; Week produces them "pro bono
One person says it is clue to lack
jlligent   and   persistent   advertising,
r says it is owing to the unfortunate
itween amateur ancl professional ex-
i.   Another is dissatisfied with the
f the competion which seem to fa-
few special exhibitors.   Another has
|ed that there are "axes to grind."
al reason given by an old resident is
and around Victoria people have
ly lovely flowers in their own gar-
hat they  feel little inclination  for
' a public display.    These sugges-
re commended to the careful con-
ion of the committee in the hope that
neasures may be adopted to arouse
interest in what ought to be a de-
and entertaining function.    What-
oubt .there may   be on   the point
I one thing is certain, that the ecluca-
pect of floriculture has  not  been
sufficiently considered, and that scientific
culture along intelligent lines, such as alone
would secure recognition in an English
Flower Show, has very few advocates in
Victoria.
SEEING VICTORIA—Everyone will
admit that this is Victoria's "growing
time," certainly there were never so
many influential and wealthy travellers in
the city, many of them come for the express purpose of investing in real estate,
either in the city or near-by. Under existing conditions it is with difficulty that
they can inspect property. To say nothing
of the number of interior streets which are
impassable attention should be directed to
the indescribable condition of Dallas Road
between Ross Bay Cemetery and Linden
Avenue. The traffic of the last few weeks
in connection with the work of the Canadian Mineral Rubber Co. has been enormous, with the result that the road has
been cut up, the surface destroyed and a
contest by the fact that the popular captain
of the Esquimalt team has been able to
gather together a strong aggregation of
players, including one or two "dark" ones
of whom great things may be expected.
There are far more unlikely things than
that Harry Pooley's team may win out.
No doubt, their ambition will be fully satisfied if they can fight their way to the final,
and this they have an excellent chance of
doing. Altogether a most attractive programme has been arranged by Secretary
Coates and as heavy expense has been incurred, the least that Victorians can do is
to show their appreciation of the grand old
game by turning out in large numbers.
THE GULF MAIL SERVICE—The
Week has been requested by
Messrs. Beckett & Major, agents of
the G. S. "Tuladi" to insert a letter which
was refused insertion by the Colonist on
the subject of the Gulf Mail Service. The
letter reached The Week too late for in-
One Week to Close Contest
With only one more week until the close of the Contest, it grows more and more
difficult to name the Grand Prize Winner.
Interest in the Contest is now at its height. Candidates and their friends are
taking advantage of every hour, in fact not a minute is lost. A number of the
candidates are breaking all records in the way of securing votes.
Miss Marjorie Kent, of District Seven, has made the greatest increase in votes
during the past week, placing her within easy distance of the leader for the Grand
Prize.
Candidates are kindly requested to have their subscription blanks properly filled
out and the proper remittance covering same placed into envelopes during the last
week of the Contest.
All subscriptions from out of town subscribers and candidates as well as those in
Victoria must have their subscriptions in "The Week" Office before io p.m. August 26.
Following is the standing of the Candidates up to Friday noon, August 18:—

thick deposit of dust varying from a few
inches to a foot in depth deposited almost
all along the section described. This is
our most popular marine drive ancl is not
fit for any vehicle to pass along at present.
No one wishes to hinder the contractors
from completing their work at the earliest possible moment, but someone should
see to it that the roadway is cleared of the
droppings which escape from every team.
A continuance of present conditions is unthinkable. Only yesterday an extremely
wealthy English capitalist, who has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in
British Columbia land adjacent to the cities
of Victoria ancl Vancouver commented in
the strongest terms on the fact that no
English contractor would be permitted to
monopolise the road, block up the street
ends with huge accumulations of sand and
gravel ancl otherwise impede the public
traffic as is being done in Victoria.
CRICKET TOURNAMENT — The
forthcoming week will be a busy
one in cricket circles ancl it is to be
hoped that the circle of interest will prove
to be a wide one. With nine good teams
competing in the local tournament there
will be no lack of interest, ancl as the teams
have been purposely drawn so as to ensure
a first-class match every clay the issue will
be in doubt until the final struggle. An
element of uncertainty is imported into the
sertion in current issue, but will be inserted
in our next. Meanwhile, it is only fair to
the owners of the boat to mention that they
stepped in at a time when no other service
was available to carry on the delivery of the
mails as best they could. Whether the
arrangement will be satisfactory as a permanent one need not be discussed at present; that is rather a matter for the residents on the Gulf Islands. Messrs. Beckett
& Major state that the only place at which
there has been difficulty or delay iu handling the mail is at Ganges, and the reason is
that the mail there is seldom ready when
the boat calls. They claim that the boat
runs very regularly, and on time, ancl that
the majority of the residents on the Gulf
Islands are satisfied. They deny that the
mail has been lost on any occasion ancl
call upon Mr, Dean, who made a number
of extravagant statements to the Colonist
to withdraw them. As a matter of fair
play The Week gives publication to this
statement.
AGRICULTURAL SHOW—We are
within measurable distance of the
Agricultural Exhibition for which
such excellent arrangements have been
concluded by the energetic Secretary, Mr.
George Sangster. The entries this year in.
all sections will be more numerous than
ever. The Horse Show in particular has secured some splendid entries and will be a
most spectacular affair. Appreciating its
popularity the Secretary has greatly en*:
larged what may be regarded as the entertainment side of the Show, and has secured
some of the most popular attractions of the
West. It is no exaggeration to say that
this year's Exhibition will be on a higher
plane of excellence than any of its predecessors, and if the streets are cleared sufficiently to allow the live stock to be conveyed to the grounds ancl the tram-car service to work smoothly, Mr. Sangster and
his colleagues should see the end of all their
financial worries.
LIBERAL MOTTOES—In nominating the Hon. William Templeman as
the Liberal candidate for Victoria,
Lt.-Col. Currie excelled himself as a campaign orator; in fact, his choice of vituperative epithets almost lays him open to the
suspicion of being the literary adviser of
the editor of Mr. Templeman's local organ.
Still, it is regrettable that the gallant
colonel got his epithets rather badly mixed.
He declared that his party were beaten at
the last election "by lying, misrepresentation, forged telegrams and boodle." Why
he should have added that the Liberal party
should remember this and "remember it
with shame" is not so obvious. Perhaps,
however, passing over Col. Currie's humorous declaration that Mr. Barnard had
"opposed Victoria," whatever that may
mean, the real "jeu d'esprit" of his address
came at the end, when in a burst of eloquence he bade his hearers adopt the motto
which Sir Wilfrid Laurier had quoted in
his reference to Henry of Navarre: "Follow the white plume which leads to glory"
—and the grave. This is surely a rather
unkindly reference to Mr. Templeman's
prospects.
OBSCENE LANGUAGE — The
-. Week notes with special satisfaction that the police have succeeded
in running in a few men who find a
pleasure in polluting the ears of passers-by
with the use of foul language. The exemplary fines inflicted by the Court should act
as a deterrent ancl it is to be hoped that the
vigilance of the police will not be relaxed
because they have secured a few convictions. Unfortunately, this offence is far
too prevalent in Victoria and perhaps the
most regrettable feature of the case is that
boys are the greatest offenders. The use
of obscene language by young school-boys
is so general as to excite comment. Tliere
should be a remedy ancl if it cannot be
found by parents or teachers, the Juvenile
Delinquents Court will have to be invoked'
CHINESE HEAD-TAX-The Colon]
ist is sticking to the Times wiffll
dogged persistency in its discussion
of the Chinese Head-tax. Its most effective argument is its repeated quotation of
Mr. Templeman's remarks in the Victoria,
Theatre, in which he clearly stated that he
was in favour of repealing the head-tax and
substituting an agreement with China on
similar lines. If Mr. Templeman did nit
mean to say this he is the finest illustra-*-
tion ever seen on a public platform of a.
man to whom language was given in order
that he might conceal his thoughts.
THE MOAT AND THE BEAM—
The Victoria Times sententiously
remarks in ils editorial columns
that "the people are disgusted with cant,
hypocrisy and humbug." Then why not
give its readers a change and not try to
keep up the farce by sucli a humorous absurdity as the paragraph which immediately
follows the foregoing in its columns!
"From beginning to end there was not a
sincere note in that alleged masterpiece of
the Provincial Premier delivered on Saturday."
POLITICAL   AMENITIES — Thc
Victoria Times in its wanderings in
"Slanderbund" gleefully quotes the
facetious   remark   made   about the Premier  of British   Columbia by an Eastern
reporter, that "No man can be as wise as
Mc  looks?"   The Week would hate
to enforce the antithesis with a personal
application to the respected proprietor of
the Times. 16
THE WEEK,  SATURDAY, AUGUST  19,  1911
THE WHITE
GASOLINE TRICK
CAPACITY FROM TOREE TO FIVE TONS
The White Truck carried this load from the Cameron Mill to the
Skating Rink, now under construction at the Willows, a total distance of 4 1-2 miles, in 32 minutes. It takes a team of horses,
hauling 3000 feet of lumber, a whole day to make two trips.
The saving of the truck over the horse in this instance is decidedly pronounced. We ask
every merchant using 3 teams or more to take a demonstration of the White Truck and be
convinced of the money he is losing in using horses as a means of solving the delivery problem.
