THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBEE 1, 1910
One Dollar Per Annum
; RAILWAY POLICY
there is not a little murmuring in the
lets at the unexpected delay on the part
lhe Canadian Northern Eailway Com-
ly in announcing their definite policy
commencing actual construction on
Iicouver Island.   Naturally the Liberal
Iss is trying to make capital out of the
lation.     The   fatal   ineptitude   with
Ich it opposed Mr. McBride's railway
Icy "in toto" during the last Provincial
lipaign is being repeated.    It fails to
pern any reason for the delay; it still
Ifesses to believe that the Victoria &
I'clay Sound Eailway is a "fake" pro-
It, an eleventh hour suggestion, which
ll never materialize, and it roundly calls
I the members for Victoria to resign in
ordance with a pledge which they gave
|do so if construction were not com-
liced within the time specified by the
|.mier.   It would be a waste of time for
Week to point out to a paper which
Is not Avant to be convinced that "cir-
listances alter cases," and that it can
Ider much greater service to the com-
Inity and the Province it' it were able
Iput forward some constructive instead
ldestructive* criticism.    Now what are
facts?    Briefly,  Mr.  McBride jpro-
Jsed that every clause of the agreement
lich   he   made   with   the   Canadian
Irthern should be embodied in a legal
Itract aud in Legislative enactment, ancl
It such contract should be carried out
(every detail.   The specific promises af-
Iting Victoria were that it should be
Jide the Island terminus of a Transcon-
|iental system;  that thc Canadian Nor-
ern work-shops, roundhouses and offices
auld be located here, and that the Bar-
Jiy Sound Eailway should be constructed
jrthwith.   Nothing has occurred except a
|lay in commencing construction on the
irelay Sound Eailway to falsify Mr. Mc-
■ride's promises.    The only question is
Blether any circumstances have transpired
Lee last fall to justify this delay.   The
Jeek believes that such is the case, and
[though it is as impatient as any of its
faders for construction to commence, it is
)t so blind as to shut its eyes to the im-
brtant bearing of certain events which
ave transpired since that time.   AVhen
lie Canadian Northern contract was made
liere was no thought whatever of acquir-
Jig the Dunsmuir mines; their acquisi-
|.on has entailed, including development,
hi outlay of $15,000,000, or three times
lie total estimated cost of building the
rictoria & Barclay Sound Eailway.   The
Ixpenditure  of such  an  enormous  sunn
las naturally shifted the centre of gra-
lity further north,  and has raised the
luestion as to whether the interests of the
Jlaiiadian Northern would be better served
ly building somewhat nearer to the vast
lreas of coal wliieh they have acquired,
Vhich   practicallv   means   adopting   the
I'owichan Valley route.    No reasonable
lian will deny thc weight of such a con-
lideration, nor the right of the Govem-
lient and the Canadian Northern to take
into account.   The Week believes it to
|e a matter of the highest congratulation
the people of Vancouver Island that
[15,000,000  of  English  capital  should
|ave been brought in quite unexpectedly
.r one of the greatest of our local indus-
^ies.    There is a further consideration
which sufficient weight has not been
Ittached   which   is   that   the   Canadian
Jorthern have announced their determina-
lon to establish a line from Victoria to
lie north end of the Island.    This is a
■reject dear to the heart of every Vancou-
|.r Islander, who realizes that it is the
lie thing necessary to bring the Island
lito direct communication with all the
Iranscontinental lines and the Orient.   It
is to this declared policy of the Canadian
Northern that the recent activity of the
C. P. E. is due, so that we are already
benefitting indirectly from the stand they
have taken.   It would be foolish, even if
it were possible, to force the Canadian
Northern to build to the nortli end of the
Island by any but the most favourable
route, both as to grades and alignment;
and if the Cowichan Valley is the better
route in this respect for a north coast line
it would be the highest folly on the part
of the Government not to use their every
effort to secure the building of such a line,
even if the negotiations involved a little
necessary delay in settling the fate of the
Barclay Sound Eailway.   In the opinion
of The Week it is a case of relative values,
and of the vastly greater importance of an
all-Island railway as against a branch rail-
Avay; and   a   west-coast   line*  must   always   be   the  latter,   as   has   been  repeatedly  pointed  out   in these columns.
Such a conclusion, however, does not involve the slightest weakening in the determination to build the Barclay Sound Eailway ;  it must and will be built.   First of
all because Premier McBride gave his
pledge, and as an honourable man will live
up to it; and next because if the Canadian
Northern do not want to build it the local
company is in a position to do so, having
to the laiowledge of The Week been offered all the money required from two
of the most influential financial firms in
London.   Of course, they will expect the
same treatment as the Canadian Northern,
the guaranteeing of the bonds and interest,
but there is no reason why this should be
denied, if the "bona fides" of the guarantors are satisfactorily demonstrated to
the Government.   The section of country
through which the projected railway would
pass is, despite whatever its detractors may
say, one of the richest in the Province, and
there is not the slightest fear that the
Government will ever be called upon to pay
a cent.   This position was accepted by the
Government at the last election, and can
easily be verified by an independent engineer if necessary. The Week, therefore,
takes the view that, while the delay is regrettable, there is nothing to worry about;
that Premier McBride would be the last
man to break his word or to sacrifice one
jot of the advantage which he secured under the Canadian Northern contract unless
he got something more than a "quid pro
quo."   There only remains one other matter to deal with and tbat is the suggestion
that Victoria is to be "side-tracked"; and
that because the ferry may make connection at some point twenty or thirty miles
up the coast Victoria is to be "left in the
cold."   Those who offer this criticism forget that Mr. McBride promised that the
Canadian Northern ferry service would
give the fastest connection between the
Mainland and Victoria.   Every Victorian
knows that that is not to lie secured by
running the boats direct to Victoria, but
by crossing from Port Mann to sonic point
near to Sidney and connecting with Victoria by rail.   In this way the Canadian
Northern hope to establish a time schedule from Port Mann, which would be
impossible by a direct water service.    Is
not the shortest possible connection the
best link that could bind Victoria to the
Mainland.   Which would be the less likely to side-track this city, a combined water
and land service of three hours, or an all-
water service of four.   It must not be forgotten that under the contract the Provincial Government has absolute control of the
connections to Victoria.    If an all-Island
route will be best served, because quickest
served, by running the ferries to Mill Bay,
oi'* thereabouts, all the power in tlie world
would   not  bring  passengers  twenty  or
thirty iniles out of the way in order to
pass through Victoria.   All that Victoria
has a right to demand, and what she will
undoubtedly get, is the quickest possible
connection with the Mainland, whicii
means the quickest connection between the
ferry landing and the City of Victoria.
Mr. McBride is pledged to give this and
The Week does not hesitate to say, and
to say it with respect, that he dare not
proffer less as a fulfilment of the contract
with the Canadian Northern. That he
would contemplate such a thing The Week
utterly refuses to believe, and while urging
him to end the present period of suspense
as quickly as possible, it ventures to express the belief that he will end it in a
manner which will reassure all who have
accorded him their confidence. Meanwhile, The Week may be pardoned for offering a suggestion to the Board of Trade
and the merchants and millionaires of
Victoria; it is that the sun does not entirely rise and set in the Capital City;
that the true policy for the advancement
of Victoria is to aid in the development of
Vancouver Island and that Victoria can
only grow as a result of the growth of
the Island. Some of these gentlemen, especially the representatives of the Board
of Trade, require to have their horizon
widened a little, ancl to see that their interests lie outside their own community
as well as within it. Victoria capital has
done little or nothing for the development
of Vancouver Island; it is outside capital
which has been the pioneer of research, of
exploration ancl of operation. While the
Victoria banks have been carefully nursing more than $20,000,000 of deposits at
3 per cent., men with mineral claims, coal
areas, timber limits or land have had to
rustle every dollar on the outside, ancl all
for lack of enterprise on the part of the
men in Victoria who have made large fortunes here and then buried them "in a
napkin." These are the men who are now
squealing because they think that Victoria
is going to be side-tracked. The view of
The Week is that they are crying out before they are hurt, but in any event they
woukl show a much higher appreciation of
the importance and the demands of the
situation if instead of denouncing and
hampering the Government they did a
little hustling on their own account, invested a little more of their own money
to help along the pioneer industries of
the Island ancl showed by tlieir activity
that they shared with their more enterprising Vancouver competitors that faitli
in tlie future of the Island which is enriching the Terminal City at the cost of
the Capital.
THE UNIVERSITY SITE
Victoria has lost the Provincial University, if it can be said to have lost something whicii it never had. There is on
every hand a feeling of keen disappointment and not a little surprise at the final
decision of the Commissioners. It is idle
to attempt to burke the fact and the only
reasonable attitude is to dispassionately
consider the causes which have contributed to an adverse verdict, and to lay
their lessons to heart. The Week bus always maintained that the Government
should havc settled the question of thc
University site. Such a matter lay distinctly within its prerogative ami within
its ordinary routine business. The magnitude of the question did not in any sense
lift it into another plane. If the Government bad dealt with the matter no doubt
there would have been considerable conflict, and the subject would have been
settled in the political arena, but this
hardly constitutes a valid objection to the
constitutional method of procedure, which
was followed when a matter of at least
equal, if not greater importance, was
dealt with, viz., the location of the Parliament Buildings. To this extent Thc Week
believes   tliat   the   Government   showed
some weakness ancl was blameworthy; but,
unfortunately the Committee which represented  Victorian interests,  showed even
greater weakness, ancl instead of contenting themselves with a very able statement
of the case for the Capital City, stepped
entirely outside the limits of their authority in suggesting that the question be
dealt with by an independent Commission.
Such a suggestion furnished the Government with an easy method of avoiding a
complicated ancl disquieting problem, and
it made it impossible for Victoria to raise
any reasonable protest against the decision.
It seems to The AVeek that this action on
the part of the Arictoria Committee puts
the city entirely out of court, ancl there is
absolutely nothing to do but to accept the
verdict with the best grace possible.  This,
however, does not prevent it from offering
a suggestion to explain why an unbiassed
ancl singularly able Commission of Professors has failed to appreciate the unique
advantages of Arictoria. The Week believes
that in every respect Arictoria is the best
site for a Provincial University and that
Vancouver in some essential respects falls
very far behind the requirements of the
case.   But the explanation of the finding
is not far to seek; it must be remembered
that College professors are of all men the
most eclectic, and what the majority of
College professors of the United States
tliink, a majority of the College professors
of Canada are pretty sure to think.    Dr.
Todd wrote to something like fifty American professors on this subject and published their replies in a pamphlet. Almost
to a man they favoured the University site
"as near as possible to the largest centre
of population," because it furnished the
students with a better opportunity of keeping in touch with the growing industries
of the country and also offered them facilities for earning money to keep them between terms.    Both these points may be
conceded, but in the opinion of The AVeek
they are far out-weighed by other considerations, notably those of climate, environment, social and otherwise, intellectual atmospheie and natural facilities, not
merely for education but for what is of
vastly greater importance,  training ancl
character building.   Unfortunately, these
aspects of University life receive little consideration as yet in the United States or
Canada.    The main object of the governing bodies of these so-called seats of learning is to turn out macliine-niade money
earners at thc earliest possible moment.
Thc only side of life the importance of
which is emphasized is this material aspect.    Culture, meditation, the habit of
thought; and the cultivation of character
play no part either in the curriculum or
conduct: of American ami Canadian Universities.   It is a pity, but it is true, and
as long as .such considerations prevail those
whose "bread and cheese'' depend on the
financial success of a University will vote
foi' placing it in the closest possible contact with the "Almighty Dollar."    The
view of I'he Week is that British Columbia
with its unrivalled resources and the high
standards which some of its ministers have
set could well have afforded to ignore this
consideration aud to have been thc first
Province to establish a University under
such conditions as would have insured the
cultivation of thc higher instincts of the
race.    It could have ignored the question
of cost, which under any circumstances
would only have meant a few more thousand acres of the millions  it  possesses.
Perhaps, however, such ideas are Utopian,
and Canada will be content for generations to come to wallow in the mire of
materialism, which seems to be so congenial to its powerful neighbour across the
line.    At any rate Thc AVeek fears that

Corner
By THE LOUNQER
"Timeo Danaos, et dona ferentes."
—Virg. Aen.11.49.
All the same I prefer my enemies
with gifts in their hands to my friends
with bills in theirs. However, my
personal sentiments on this subject
are not the raison d'etre for the
above quotation. I am here to justify Virgil as a poet and not to criticise him as a philosopher; for an
ugly blow has been dealt him, and
that by one who at the time of the
outrage was using the poet's genius
to point the moral of his own argument. Thc gifted editor of The Colonist in his leading article published
Sept. 22nd, misquotes—a heinous
crime in one who fills the position of
"guide, philosopher and friend" to
many thousands. His rendering read
"Timeo Danaos etiam dona ferentes,"
thereby ruining the scansion. And
then he calls it the oft-quoted line!
The effects of such a blunder are far-
reaching. How can we continue to
read with interest and intellectual
benefit Sunday's "An Hour With the
Editor," when our G. P. & F. exposes himself as a "misquoter"? How
can our faith fail to be shattered? Of
all errors in print the worst are misquotations as they cannot be attributed to that universal scape-goat
—the printer.
* *   *
After all the gentleman who lost his
bet as to the meaning of the word
"transpire," being content to leave
the judgment to The Colonist, was
not wrong as to the original meaning
of the word. According to The Century Dictionary the first meaning is
the same as that of "perspire." The
colloquial use making the word synonymous with "occur" or "elapse" is
entirely erroneous, though none but
a pedant would now employ the word
except in such a sense.
* *   *
A plucky act was performed last
Saturday afternoon by one of the
Victoria police and is well worthy of
mention. P. C. James Farrant was
on duty on Government when a runaway dray, belonging to the Victoria
Transfer Company, dashed up from
the Causeway past the Post Office.
Fortunately the roadway was clear
of traffic but the sidewalks were
crowded, it being just about that time
in the afternoon when all the ladies
wcre down town doing their shopping. The officer ran up from behind and was on the point of catching the reins when the team swerved
and hc narrowly escaped being knocked down by the wheels. He then made
another sprint and managed to climb
onto the tail end of the waggon,
whence hc made his way to the front
and succeeded in bringing thc
frightened horses under control in
time to escape an ugly collision with
thc Dominion Express Company's
office. It is certain that if P. C. Far-
rant had not shown himself to be a
man of mettle and one capable of acting in an emergency, there would
havc been a grave accident on the
main street. It is satisfactory to
know that there is special recognition for such acts when suitably recommended. Incidentally, incidents of
this nature go far to disprove the old-
time joke with reference to Victoria
policemen and obesity. I do not think
that there is much need for Antipon
at the  City Police Station    just    at
present.
* *   *
And whilst on thc subject of waggons and vehicles in general, it is a
great pity that, as the law reads at
present, there is no means of prosecuting drivers who will persist in
driving along the centie of thc road.
Provision is made for their prosecution if they attempt to pass on thc
right, but so long as they are not
passing, they are technically at liberty to usurp as much of thc road as
they desire. And the worst offenders are just the ones with whom the
irritated buggy driver dare not try
conclusions. A heavily laden coal or
wood cart will not suffer from an at
tempt on the part of such an one to
take his hub. It is high time that
the police were given authority to
summons all drivers who do not keep
well to their left except when overtaking another vehicle.
Of smoke I have written many
times, but the only way to get nuisances remedied in Victoria is to keep
on pegging away till something does
happen, and this smoke nuisance
seems to be getting worse instead of
better. Were you down Government
Street on Monday afternoon? If you
were not, so much the better for you.
A dense volume of sulphurous smoke
was pouring out from a building right
in the centre of town. Complaints
were as frequent as the flowers in
May. On Wednesday afternoon I observed a cheerful cloud of smoke
gaily blowing into town from one of
the Princesses. It is terrible to contemplate what the result would be if
Victoria was really a busy manufacturing town, instead of being a
charming residential city with a few
factories dotted about here and there.
A London "particular" would not be
in it. Surely there is some remedy
for this smoke nuisance; if there isn't
it wouldn't be a bad idea for the
Council to get busy and provide one
right away.

I wish that Robert Burns were still
alive and would pay a visit to the Pacific Coast. He might then have some
nice, caustic things to say about seeing ourselves as others see us, with
particular reference to the gum-chewing habit. This awful curse was
brought most forcibly to my notice
again last Monday night at the Victoria Theatre. There was a lady sitting in a prominent position in the
stalls. She was well-dressed, that is,
so far as a mere man can judge; she
was neat and clean and tidy, which
is the main thing, and her hair was
very well done; in fact she was very
attractive until her jaws began to
move. Throughout the whole performance she continued the mastication process. Talk about Nebuchadnezzar going out to grass; that's
nothing compared with a woman ruminating. If I had a son I'd spank
him if he chewed tobacco, but I'd
disown him if he chewed gum; and
if I had a daughter addicted to the vile
practice I'd cut either her throat or
my own. The Anti-Cigarette League
has done a good work; is there nobody to undertake a similar campaign against gum-chewing?
* *   *
It is a pity that there were not
more Victorians out at the opening
of the Exhibition on Tuesday last to
see the gallant bearing of the Cadets
Corps and the Boy Scouts. The eulogies pronounced by His Honour
and His Worship respectively were
thoroughly well deserved. There can
be no possible doubt but that the establishment first of Cadet Corps and
later of Boy Scouts has done wonders
in the way of improving "Our Boys"
both in physique and in the manners
which result from discipline. There
are still, however, far too many people who look on this branch of education as mere play-acting, even if
they do not directly disapprove of it
as tending to foster militarism. Such
narrow-minded folk are really more
deserving of pity than censure, and it
is gratifying to know that their number grows less every day. It is as
the inaugurator of the Boy Scouts
movement, and not as the hero of
Mafeking that thc name of Baden-
Powell will go down to posterity.
Thc phenomenal success which has
greeted the innovation, and nowhere
more so than in Victoria, is proof
positive that boys don't want to
"hang around" the streets in their
spare time, if only something interesting and at thc same time useful be
provided for them. And although too
much praise cannot be given to the
boys, it must be remembered that
both they themselves and the community at large owe a very great
debt to those men who have freely
and gladly given up their spare time
to supervising and training the young
idea, and to whose efforts is due thc
excellent showing which the boys are
making, as exemplified last Tuesday.

It is with fear and trembling that I
venture to criticise the wording of the
reports sent in to the Lieutenant-
Governor in Council by the University Site Commissioners. It would appear that some doubt was felt as to
whether the word "Commission"
when used to designate the body of
Commissioners, should be treated as
Singular or Plural. My recollection
is that I was taught that all collective
nouns may correctly be used either
in the Singular or the Plural, but the
Commissioners went one better, for
in the first report they say "The
University Site Commission begs"
and in the auxiliary report they say
"The University Commission are."

AND  THE  STAGE
The Victoria Theatre
iThat old favourite "Charley's

Iria Theatre during the first two
|ys of the week, and later the Hur-
L. Blyden Stock Company con-
liued the same at the A. 0. U. W.
■all. As the Lady from Brazil Mr.
ttydon was inimitable and kept the
puse in roars of laughter. Miss
Hbson as the real aunt was very
leasing. Next week this popular
pmpany will stage "Facing the
lusic," an English comedy which is
lid to bc the very best bill in their
Ipertoire. The following week the
|ydon Ctock Company will migrate
Nanaimo where they will fill a
Iree Aveeks' engagement in the Coal
hty, returning later to Victoria. It
i universally acknowledged that tbis
the best stock company that has
Jsited the Capital for many a long
Ity and there are many who will be
|ad to learn that next week will not
the last occasion on which they
|ill appear in the local theatre.
The Witching Hour
(John Mason is a first-class actor
Id in The Witching Hour he has se-
Ired a first-class play which has

jitertainments Avhich leaves behind a
leasant recollection and a desire to
(now more of John Mason and his

As a slack wire performer Celeste,

Musical farce   and   comedy   have
been holding the boards at the John-
^on Street Theatre, where the Hunt
Musical Comedy Company have been
amusing  large  numbers  nightly    by

portrayed Spanish Kings, Roman arbiters, Western miners, Jewish rabbis, men of the world of fashion, literature, and art, Svengalis and Dr.
Belgraffs, and even Uncle Tom, but
before never in the three hundred
parts of his long career, has he played a John J. Haggleton, a type that
seems to have been made for him.
That Mr. Lackaye realizes in John
J. Haggleton the type he sought to
portray, is manifested by the addition of a number of lines to the part
by John D. Rockefeller, almost an
admission that Rockefeller recognized Haggleton, a portrait of himself,
and approved the portrait. Lackaye,
however, has endeavored to play the
part purely in general lines, and *o
prevent the association of this character in the world of fiction with any
individual in the world of facts.
"The Battle" has been given a good
cast and production by Messrs. Liebler and Company.
NEW GRAND THEATRE
The presence of Carl Pantzer on a
vaudeville bill means, nine times in
ten, that he will be found as the headline attraction. He is one of the
famous Pantzer Brothers, all of them
athletes and all of them in vaudeville. He is one of the funniest grotesque comedians in the business and
has marvellous acrobatic ability.
"Two Hundred Miles from Broadway" is a rattling, clever little comedy playlet from the ever ready pen of
Edmund Day and it was written to fit
exactly the peculiar talents of Miss
Emeriti Campbell and Mr. Aubrey
Yates Avho are now producing it with
marked success over the Sullivan
and Considine circuit. It is a laugh,
not now and then, but continuously,
for both Miss Campbell and Mr.
Yates make the best of a lot of very
cleverly drawn situations and the fun
never flags.
Chronic vaudevillains will not be
much put to it to remember charming
Bertha Gleeson, who, for five years
past, has held against all rivals the
title of champion woman dancer of
America. With John Gleeson also a
dancer of note, and Fred Houlihan,
whose work with a variety of musical instruments has brought him
much in the way of reputation, she
will be the feature act of the next
Grand bill.
Bush and Peyser, recent European
importations, offer one of those popular acts which is a combination of
classy pantomime and sensational acrobatic work.
Harry Bloom is a singer of songs,
but his manner of delivery and his
general "frame-up" is so original that
the act mounts almost to something
new.

which had been secured ancl not once
was there thc slightest thing to which
the veriest prude could take exception. The pictures were Avithout
exception llic very best that I
havc ever seen, being remarkably
clear and steady. The scenes round
Reno and in Jeffries' camp were entertaining; the panoramic view of the
arena did more than all the reams
that have been written to convey to
the senses the vastness of the undertaking, and the pictures of thc light
itself were the reverse of brutalising,

THE FAIR
BY BOHEMIAN
I must hasten to explain that this
is not a dissertation on the fair sex,
as my readers would naturally suppose, although the subject borrows
no significant portion of its charm
and attractiveness from their presence. To illustrate, on Thursday afternoon I was vainly endeavoring to
force my way into Barnes' Circus
with one sweet little girl perched on
my shoulder and a small boy holding
my hand. Nothing doing! Hundreds
of people crowded the entrance; the
face of the ticket seller wreathed in
smiles as he cracked his favourite
jokes, one of which was "Oh yes;
you'll have to wait this time; it's
your turn; we've waited for you all
the week." Another one, apropos to
my subject, I thought rather good;
in an interval of hush he remarked,
as if he had just made a discovery,
"Well, there's the prettiest bunch of
women in this crowd I've ever seen,
and the plainest  bunch of men."
It ill becomes me to express any
opinion on such a delicate subject,
but on general principles I am prepared to admit thaf many departments of the Victoria Fall Fair have
been rendered more efficient as well
as more attractive by the presence
and invaluable aid of a number of
zealous ladies. This is especially the
case with the Exhibition and Tearoom in the "Daughters of Pity"
Building. On Thursday afternoon the
resources of the Tea-room were taxed to their utmost; every seat was occupied and there was always a big
crowd waiting, but the young ladies
in attendance, under the able direction of Mrs. Charles Wilson, were
equal to the occasion, and their unfailing courtesy and attention did
much to counteract the disappointment of those who had to wait a long
time for "the cup that cheers, but
not inebriates."
On the principle of "first things
first," I ought to say that this is undoubtedly the best Fair ever held in
Victoria, and when I use the word
■'best" I use it without qualification
and in the most absolute sense. The
animal exhibits, which very properly
rank as of the highest importance,
would not have done discredit to any
of thc English Country Fairs. Thc
draught horses of the Inverholme
Farm, Ladners, would take prizes at
any Exhibition; our local breeder,
Mr. George Hadwcn, would have
nothing to fear in the best company;
thc Provincial Government had some
splendid Holsteins of thc purest
strain, and thc Agricultural Department is to be congratulated on having developed tllis feature.
In the Riding and Driving classes
were some horses whicii could only
be surpassed at the leading horse
shows of the Continent, and it is exceedingly gratifying to note that local exhibitors came out well in spite
of the severe competition of wealthy
outsiders. There was not a finer
jumper in the Show than IIaida, thc
property of Mr. Medd of Victoria,
and Miss Violet Pooley deserves
credit for the pluck and skill she has
shown in training her beautiful mare
Stella. The mare is in much better
condition than at previous shows and
well deserved the notice she received
when she took the blue ribbon in thc
Driving class. Miss Pooley's riding
and driving are a model of graceful
workmanship in  the  ring.
I must not, however, use up all my
space in talking about horses, although the temptation is great. It is
only right to say that the Fruit cx-
hibi was superb, and bore eloquent
testimony to the reliability of all that
has been said about the fruit-growing

There were many other departments of the Fair worthy of notice,
but I am afraid that I am not competent to expatiate on the merits of
home-made bread and needle-work,
nor even of art, when it is local. I
must, however, say something about
the side-shows, which were more
numerous than at any previous Fair,
and, on the whole more attractive.
Of course, the "piece de resistance''
was Barnes' Circus, which was a
splendid exhibition, both as to the
menagerie and the ring work, and
was patronised to such an extent as
would fully justify travelling circuses in finding their way to Victoria
a little oftener.
Everybody loves a circus, and it is
a very old excuse that the grown-ups
go to take the children. They go to
revive memories of old days when
Wombwell's or Sangster's menagerie
travelled from town to town in England, and everybody went to see the
"wild beasts." I think there was
just a little more of the rif-raff ele-
48. 3-5. Two minutes, five seconds
for the half-mile makes a still worse
comparison with the Canadian record
of 1.52. 4-5, while 4.56 3-5 for the
mile ill compares with the Canadian
record of 4.21 4-5. These times
would be beaten on a good track by
any fast high school boy and the
proof that the fault was mainly with
the track is furnished by the splendid time made in the 100 yards and
200 yards. I consider that Beasley's
10 2-5 against the wind and on a
slight up grade is at least equal to
10 flat under favourable conditions
and that would be only one-fifth under Bobby Kerr's Canadian record.
Similarly Beasley's 23 2-5 for the
220 yards is only two seconds behind
Kerr's record, and Beasley was not
pushed at all in this race.
Bad as was the track, the field was
infinitely worse; so bad in fact that
Gillis, who is next thing to a world's
champion, was unable to perform on
it, and had to throw from the racing track.   To ask champion athletes
Wilton Lackaye, starring in "The Battle.'
ment than usual, and one or two
shows which might well have been
suppressed, bill 1 imagine it would
bc difficult for a circus and Fair
crowd to live quite up to thc standard set by the Moral Reform Association.
1 will conclude with a few words
about the 13. C. Champion Athletic
Sports, and in this connection I havc
to make my one strong "kick." I
think the Committee of the Association should bc ashamed of themselves
for allowing championships to be contested on such impossible grounds.
With the exception of the hard rolled
piece of track where thc sprints were
held there was not a foot of ground
lit to run on. This is evidenced by
the times in thc quarter, the half-
mile and the mile. Take thc quarter;
S3-3-S seconds compares very poorly
with the Canadian Amateur record of
to jump or throw in a stubble field is
tin outrage, and 1 must say that thc
Committee is greatly to blame for
permitting the meet to take place
under such conditions. It is all very
well to pull for Victoria, and no
doubt an admirable thing for sport
to hold these competitions at Fair
time, when a large attendance would
in as tired, but after all "sport" and
tc" should be the prime consideration, and no committee appreciating their responsibility would allow competitions to take place under
conditions which would bc a disgrace
to a country village and which effectually prevent champion athletes from
showing their true form.
TEMPERANCE IN ITS TRUEST SENSE
The Rev. Wingfield, who entered the seventieth year of his
vicarate at Gulval, Penzance, was an invalid when he was
appointed to Gulval in 1839. He told with glee how Lord
Cottenham, then Chancellor, chaffed him soon after his
arrival concerning several applications for the living on the
ground that the new Vicar could not possibly I've long.
Mr. Wingfield, at the age of 94 had still an upright figure,
with the clear complexion of health, bright, piercing eyes
and hair not yet turned from grey to snow-white. He did
not believe in "systems of living" or that sort of thing, but
lived as ordinary people should. He was rarely in bed
before 11 p.m. and rose before 8 a.m. Being interviewed by
a newspaper man, he said: "I eat as much as is good for
an old man. I don't take as much as younger people, but
then I don't want to. One doesn't take so much exercise
when one is old, and therefore requires less. I touch no
wine but Mumm's "Extra Dry" champagne, and if very
tired I take a little of the best whisky in water."
Is not this an illustration of temperance in the true
significance of the word?
Re Mumm's "Extra Dry," we have only to say that the
genuine always carries the pink capsule, while "Selected
Brut" and "Cordon Rouge" bear the signature of G. H.
Mumm & Co. in full. It is well, when ordering champagne,
to look for these marks, as we can only guarantee these
wines when they pass through our hands.

BITULITHIC PAVEMENT
(From Jersey City,   N. J.,    Evening
Journal, February 17, 1910.)
Indulgent Uncle—Jack, are you careful about your personal expenses these
days?
"Yes, sir; I manage with some effort
to make them balance my income to the
exact cent."
The Hudson County Automobile
Club has made an appropriation for
the road committee, of which George
E. Blackslee is chairman, to defray
the expense of employing two men to
obtain signatures of property owners
along the Boulevard between Newark
Avenue and the Newark and New
York Railroad, on a petition to the
Board of Freeholders to pave that
section of the thoroughfare with
Bitulithic material.
The road bed of the Boulevard between the Newark and New York
Railroad and Bergen Point has been
recently relaid, but from the railroad
tracks to Newark Avenue it is in bad
shape. Seven and one-half years ago
a section of the Boulevard on the
"loop" near Hoboken was laid with
Bitulithic pavement, and it has never
had a cent spent on it for repairs
since, while thousands of dollars
have been expended annually on the
other sections. This is proof positive, say the Hudson Automobile Club
members, that the Bitulithic pavement is absolutely the best.
At thc March meeting of the Board
of Freeholders the road committee of
thc automobile club will wait on thc
board and ask them to put down the
Bitulithic pavement on the Boulevard between the Newark and New
York Railroad and Newark Avenue.
The appropriation for the Boulevard for 1909 was $110,000 for repairs
and maintenance and $250,000 for reconstruction. The pavement now being put down is what is known as
tar macadam, which while fairly serv-
iveable, is not thc best for developed
territory. The $250,000 for reconstruction last year was spent on that
section of the Boulevard between
Bergen Point and the Newark and
New York Railroad.
Fred Dunham, engineer in charge
of construction on the Boulevard is
of the opinion that the Boulevard for
its entire length of 19 miles should
be paved with the Bitulithic type of
roadway as recommended by State
Road Commissioner Gilkinson, and
also says this could be done for one
million dollars. The appropriation
for repairs and maintenance for 1910
is $110,000 and $250,000 has been asked for reconstruction.
"There is no question but that thc
Bitulithic type of pavement is the
best," says Mr. Dunham. "I would
like to see it laid thc entire length of
the Boulevard, for it is thc only thing
that will stand heavy trucking and
traffic."
Residents all along the Boulevard
woud like to see the Bitulithic pave-
mtnt laid and it is probable that other organizations outside of thc Hudson County Automobile Club will
take up the matter and petition thc
Board of Freeholders for a appropriation sufficient to allow the laying ol
Bitulithic along the  entire  roadway.

ty of every British Columbian

opposed to mere education to
fntribute his mite to the little
■eamlet of public opinion which,

d grows as it flows, until some
|ty it will sweep away the arti-
ial barrier which a dollar-seek-
g age has erected against the
be cultivation of the human
lenities. Of the silly sugges-
ons which the Victoria Times

l the part of the Government, or
_e Minister of Education for de-
ying the publication of the Re-
irt nothing need be said; for
hile it would undoubtedly have

■e whole incident is so insignifi-

small mind would waste any
tne on it. i
HE BEST PAVEMENT
The Battle of the Pavements
miot yet be considered at an end.
be Week has always favoured
;)od blocks on a concrete founda-
>n for down-town use where the
iffic is heavy. In the absence of
ything better it has favoured
ohalt for residential sections
;iere the traffic is light. Whilst
ing this it has not been unmind-
1 of the drawbacks of asphalt in
extreme slipperiness and a ten-
icy for the sheeting, or covering
wear through in places. During
last week an opportunity has
n offered to investigate the
ims of Bitulithic Avith the re
sult that there is little doubt about
the superiority of the latter under
all conditions where the strongest and most durable pavement is
required. In the opinion of The
AVeek, however, Bitulithic must
be considered mainly in comparison with wood-block pavement, because it is a thick, heavy pavement
whicii is at its best under heavy
traffic. An eight-inch Bitulithic
pavement costs in Victoria $2.50
a square yard, as against $3.75
for creosoted blocks. Its life is
probably longer; it is not slippery or porous; it never cracks;
it is waterproof and economical to
clean and repair. It is at present
in use in over one hundred cities.
In Canada it started in 1902 with
13,000 square yards and in 1909
had 744,000. In Toronto alone
it has 275,000 and is laid on 100
streets. These facts show that it
is at least worthy of the closest in-
vestigation. For residential
streets tlie same company has a
thinner pavement similarly constructed, wliieh only costs $1.90
per square yard as against $2.00
for asphalt. Tlie AVeek, whilst
not pretending to appraise the exact relative values of the two systems, thinks that Bitulithic should
be tested in ATietoria, as if it
meets all other requirements there
is no question that it will prove to
be tlie cheapest in maintenance.
A section in The AVeek office,
wliieh lias been laid in a Portland
street nine and a half years shows
little sign of wear.
ALL ABOUT RUST
Tlie name of Mr. Rust, the respected City Engineer of Toronto,
has been brought prominently before the citizens of Arictoria during the last few weeks. It may, or
may not have been a good thing
to have secured his services, and
now that a satisfactory agreement has been concluded with Mr.
Angus Smith, it is a subject
which cannot be debated. At the
same time The AA'eek cannot overlook the fact that just when the
curiosity of A^ictorians with respect to Mr. Rust and his attainments had been aroused an Eastern despatch was industriously
published by the local press to
the effect that he had been asked
to resign because it had been discovered that the City Reservoir
was in a filthy and unsanitary condition. The AVeek particularly
requests its readers to peruse an
article appearing in the current
issue which is copied from The
Toronto AVeekly Star of last Saturday, entitled "Engineer Rust
and Controller Foster." The Star
is a thoroughly reliable paper
and may bo trusted to give a correct ami intelligent account of
anything of importance which has
transpired. There are two remarkable features of The Star's
report which might have been
written expressly for Arictoria;
the one is that Mr. Rust has been
subjected to a policy of unintelligent "nagging"; tlie other is that
the "nagging" proceeded from
Controller Foster. Mr. Rust's experience in Toronto so closely resembles Mr. Smith's in Victouia
that only the unintelligent intellect could fail to grasp the deadly
parallel. On the matter of the
Controller, however, this much
remains to be said, that there arc
certain important officials in the
City of Victoria who are credited with the desire to bring the
present system of city government
into disrepute and to substitute
Controllership. The experience
of Toronto would seem to create a
doubt whether the change would
terminate all the ills of civic
mismanagement, including   unin
telligent "nagging."
THE THEATRE QUESTION
The AA7eek is utterly opposed to
the project for building a theatre
on the vacant land belonging to
the City in the rear of the Empress Hotel. In takint;' this stand
it cannot be charged with any
lack of appreciation of the value
and importance of theatrical performances, to the discussion ancl
criticism of which it devotes far
more space than the two daily
papers. But there are several
strong reasons why it hopes that
no by-law will be carried in favour of the project referred to. The
first is that the location is altogether unsuitable; it is too fnr
from the centre of thc City and
from the centre of population. If
anyone will refer to the map he
will find that the real centre <>t
population lies at least half u
mile northeast of the City Hall,
which is a full mile from the proposed site. Nor does this cover
all the ground as to location; The
Week believes that any theatre
upon public ground should be
placed where all classes of the
community can reach it with the
least* inconvenience. To go to
the Empress Hotel is to consult
the convenience of the well-to-do
people as against that of the
masses, and as the latter constitute at least 80 per cent, of thc
population, it is an unfair proposition. If a theatre is to be built
on City property it should bc either on the site of the old market,
which is about to be vacated bv
the V. & S. Ry. Co., or on tlie
broad part of Pandora Avenue, nt
the intersection with Cook Street.
Either site would be perfectly fair
in its location to all classes of the
community and would be conveniently served by the tramway system. But The AVeek is not in
favour of the scheme at all. It
holds that the City should either
go in for a Municipal theatre and
own it entirely, or leave the proposition strictly alone. The present
project simply means financing for
Theatrical Syndicates. Anyone
who has followed theatrical affairs for the last few years knows
that in upwards of a hundred
cities the Klaw & Erlanger Syn-
cate has been lighting the Schubert Syndicate, and that the campaign has now reached the Pacific
Coast. These two powerful syndicates are fighting for control.
Why should Victoria pull the
chestnuts out of the fire for either
of them? They cannot afford to
leave us out of the circuit, and the
fact that Klaw & Erlanger have already taken a three years lease of
the old theatre, and that the owners have agreed to spend a considerable sum in improving it, is
a guarantee that for that time at
any rate A'ictoria will be assured
of the bookings of the K. & E.
Syndicate. Meanwhile, although
The AVeek admits that the old
theatre is inadequate, it holds that
the two syndicates should be left
to fight the matter out between
themselves with thc certainty that
one, if not two, modern theatres
will emerge from the conflict. If
it had the slightest doubt on this
point it would hold up both hands
for Mr. Leiser's project; but it
has not, nnd therefore it would be
fnr wiser for the City to sell the
valuable site near the Empress
nnd apply the funds ns some slight
alleviation of the present execs,
ive taxation. THE WEEK, SATUEDAY, OCTOBEE 1, 1910
Sensible   Autumn   Wedding   Gift
Suggestions
Nowa-days in Wedding Presents something serviceable and practical is
quite taking the place of a "frippery." This does indeed argue well for the
march of intellect. To us, the best gift is the one that can enter into life's
reality and lighten the care and trouble of each passing day. We do not know
of a more pleasing present to give a young couple than
A   Gas  Range, Gas Radiator   or   Gas   Grate
A Gas Range will do anything that a coal range will
do and do it better, because the heat can be regulated to a nicety. No more backaches from lifting
heavy coal scuttles, no carrying of ashes or chopping wood, no washing of sooty pots and pans. A
good Gas Range would make them laugh at the
high price of coal.
A Gas Radiator or Gas Grate can be lighted in a
second—just a match-scratch and a turn of the tap
and the whole room will be well heated in a few
minutes without the bother of building a fire. Will
not only give pleasant warmth without any trouble,
but will decorate and beautify the home.
For a Wedding Present what could be better than either of these to lighten
the housewife's labor and build up the head of the family's bank account?
We can offer a Gas Range for $20, a handsome English Gas Grate for $15,
a Gas Radiator as low as $5.

Novel Census Questions
Considerable surprise has been
inced at the decisions of the Aus-
alian Labour Ministry with regard
the questions which will be sub-
itted in connection with next year's
insus. One of these questions is:
■Vre you a total abstainer from the
ie of alcoholic liquors?" Other ques-
ans deal with religion, salary, and
e number of rooms in dwellings.
Bishop and Football
The Bishop of Liverpool, address-
g a meeting of football referees at
iverpool recently, said that the game
inferred great benefits, physical and
oral, on those who played it. "Foot-
tll," he remarked, "tends to streng-
len the mind, body, and character,
sends us back to our work better
orkmen, better citizens, and better
len."
An Up-to-Date King
"Some one has said that genius is
nly an infinite capacity for taking
ains. King George certainly posses-
this faculty. He is essentially
road minded and free from prcju-
ces, understanding men and appreci-
:ing them at their real worth. In a
jecial measure he has the grit gen-
■ally attributed to the Anglo-Sax-
temperament and expressed by he
lglish word 'commonsense.'
'A very modern King, up to date,
;ll-informed, George V. has come to
e throne at 'the most favourable
oment that fate could have decreed
ith for him and his Empire. His
_k has been facilitated, first, by the
_rk his father accomplished in in-
rnational politics, and secondly, by
at which he has himself achieved
d the special knowledge he had ac-
ired in imperial affairs. His father
lueathed to him relations with his
iverful Continental neighbors which
itain at the beginning of the pres-
century, in her isolation—splen-
may be, but dangerous—could
foresee.   George V. has promised
to labour indefatigably to preserve
and consolidate these valuable bonds.
That promise he may be counted on
to keep."
The Hobble Skirt
The hobble skirt claimed a victim
among the fashionable crowd at the
Chantilly (France) races. A (horse
whicii was being led through the
paddock suddenly ran away and dashed through the spectators. One lady
was unable to run owing to the tightness of her "robe entravee," and fell
under the horse. She sustained a
fractured skull.
New Motor-Train Service
A service of electric motor trains is
to be adopted next month on the
London and North-Western branch
line between Northwich and Crewe.
The line serves great agricultural
and salt areas, and the intention is
immediately to erect two stations between Middlewich and sandbach and
Northwich and Middlewich in order
to tap several populous villages far
removed from existing stations. The
new system should better connect
Mid-Cheshire with the big agricultural
and cattle markets at Crewe, and
Northwich goods will be specially catered for.
Sixty-five Years in One Employ
An interesting long-service competition, promoted by the East Somerset Agricultural Society, reveals the
fact that it is quite common for farm
servants in the west of England to
spend the whole of their lives in one
employ. Prizes were offered by Mr.
Henry Hobhouse, formerly member
for the division, to labourers of good
character who had worked for the
greatest number of years in succession in one service, and first prize
was won by Henry Herridge, who has
been in the employ of Mr. L. B.
Matthews, a Somerset agriculturist,
for sixty-five years. Luke Chidgey, a
farm worker for Mr. S. Brain for
over forty-two years, was second,
and another man in the employ of
Mr. Matthews named Tom Hoskins,
who had served his master for thirty-
seven years, was placed third.
Cleopatra's Needle
Thorough examination is to be
made by the London County Council's architect of the safety and general condition of Cleopatra's Needle,
the thirty-second anniversary of the
erection of which on the Thames Embankment was last Monday. It is
supposed to have been erected at
Heliopolis about 1500 B.C., and was
brought to London (after being lost
in the Bay of Biscay on the way) in
1878, at the expense of Dr. Erasmus
Wilson, who gave £10,000 for ihe
purpose.
The granite pedestal on which the
obelisk stands will also be cleaned by
a chemical process. The obelisk is
68* feet high and weighs 180 tons.
Hard Work for Long Life
Hard work is given as the secret
of long life by Farmer William
Brown, of Mottingham-lane, Motting-
ham, near Eltham, Kent, who will be
a hundred years old on September
27.
"I never kept a book or entered a
figure in my life," he said with
pride. "I can remember the whole
history of my life down to every
pound and shilling. Five years ago
I Avon a pigeon-shooting match with
a man seventy years old and was presented with a silver cup. Hard work
has saved my life up to now; I
could have retired many years before
I did."
To Fight Taxicabs.
A new scale of horsed-cab fares
came into operation in Nottingham on
Monday as the result of an agreement
between the proprietors rendered
necessary by the increasing competition of taxicabs.
All but two of the owners have entered the agreement. In order that
the public may be able to identify a
reduced fare cab the new rate has
been painted on each vehicle. The
fare has been reduced from one shilling to eight pence a mile.
Lord Kitchener
General Botha, in a speech delivered at Johannesburg, stated that the
best defence force in the world could
be formed out of the men available
in South Africa. He asked for the
co-operation of the British in forming such a force composed of both
races.
He thought that they should employ Lord Methuen in organising the
force, and if another British officer
Avere wanted they should get his "old
war friend, Lord Kitchener."
Lusitania's New Record
The Cunard liner Lusitania, which
arrived in the Mersey on Monday,
made a strong effort after calling at
Fishguard to catch the tide at Liverpool and covered the distance at a
speed of 26.66 knots per hour, thus
creating a record.
The passage from Ambrose Channel, America, to Daunt's Rock Lightship, Queenstown, occupied 4 days 16
hours, 38 hinutes.
Canada's Opportunity
The population of the United
States has now reached, if it does not
exceed, the 90,000,000 mark, and the
Republic is facing the condition
where it will soon cease to be a food
exporting country. There is where
Canada's opportunity comes in.—
Free Press, Ottawa.
Patience
English people have the reputation
and rightly of being very patient with
adverse critics. Were I to stand up
in Chicago and ridicule the American
woman I would find myself ostracised. A famous English lecturer invited to America gave as one of his
first lectures in Chicago a studied and
somewhat hostile criticism of the
American woman. After that he
spoke for the remainder of his tour
to empty benches. A Labour leader
Avhom I know Avent to Paris and addressed a gathering of workmen there
on the rights of labor, referring
mildly to some shortcomings of the
French government. He was promptly conducted to the frontied by the
police, formally expelled, and informed that return meant imprisonment.
We, on the other hand, rejoice in criticism when we are not indifferent to
it. "They say, what say they, let
them say," may be taken as our national motto. But the returned Englishman or the American visitor who
frequents a few streets in West London, a few shops mainly catering for
arrivals from other lands, and a few
slums, obtains no real idea of our
national life. England has plenty of
faults that need remedying, but despite her faults, or may be sometimes
because of them, she stands first in
strength, in wealth, and in Dominions. Despite our alleged, slowness
ancl heaviness more epoch-making,
scientific advance, more great mechanical discoveries havc come from
England during thc past century than
from any other land. The critic deplores that so many English people
read Charles Garvice. Let me admit frankly that he is not among my
favourite authors, but I could wish
that the average Paris reader was
satisfied Avith as Avholesome fare.—■

lice, in his club, in his house, for all
his needs. The push-button plays an
enormous part in Canadian commercial life. Hundreds of automatic-
like boys are at the other end of the
push-button somewhere or other,
and they respond to a call with a rapidity of a cannon shot. There is no
"If you please," or any other polite
formula about the orders of a Montreal man. He wants something. He
states what it is and adds sharply.
"Get it." It is got. If not, the boy
passes out. A successor appears and
he wastes no time or words or explanation—hc gets the thing ordered and
quickly. No one explains in Montreal. A person does a thing or does
not—but no one waits to explain, for
no one waits to hear. If you argue
about the excessive charge of a certain item in a hotel bill, or the price
of a standard book or article in a
shop, no reply is vouchsafed. Yon
take it or leave it. Your protest is
wasted. Montreal is on the move all
thc time. It cannot stand still and
business hang up—as they say— while
you reproach it for its methods. And
every minute you feel the life flowing
stronger and stronger in the veins
of the city. Every day carries this
marvellous Montreal still further
along thc tide of prosperity and progress. Montreal, like little Jo, keeps
ever "a-movin' on." Half a million of
people are leading strenuous and
highly-strained existences in Montreal.    Yet the people    are    healthy,
and perhaps principally because they
are temperate.
The iced water craze is rampant,
and men quaff it with a relish that
only those do in other portions of the
Empire, when something more exciting that frigid water bubbles in the
glass. Iced water may not be fascinating to the stranger, but the men of
Montreal, and Canadian cities generally, drink it early and late, at meals
and between meals, with a relish and
enjoyment that thc blase wine-lover
must regard with perfect envy. The
saloons arc said to bc full and busy,
but no one can believe that. In Quebec, one saw the temperance of the
Canadian. In Montreal, still more.
Wine is no part of a fine dinner. The
iced water is good enough for the
guest. Nothing is so wonderul as
the absence of any wine or other alcoholic beverage from the tables,
both public and private, of the Canadians. There are exceptions-but
not frequently. It is surely admirable
and eloquent of the common sense
and wisdom of these brethren of ours
in the  Dominion.

ENGINEER    RUST    AND    CONTROLLER FOSTER
There was a man named Job in the
land of Uz, and from what we have
read about him he seems to have
been about the only person who
needed to use more patience in his
business than Engineer Rust of Toronto, is required to use in the discharge of his duties.
For many years Mr. Rust has been
preparing all kinds of reports for all
kinds of aldermen, well knowing that
no real use would ever bc made oi
ihe facts and figures which he collected so laboriously and    submitted
.-o cheerfully.   We do not doubt that
Mr. Rust has a store-room somewhere
well  stocked  with  elaborate  reports
ordered by  aldermen—reports  on  a
hundred subjects—each one of which
ivas no sooner in course of prcpara-
iion than thc aide-man who demanded it proceeded to :orget all about it.
Through   all  this,  and  the  manifold
vexations of his trying position, Mr.
Rust has preserved not only his sanity, but his patience and that gentle
cheerfulness which characterizes him.
But it must be confessed that the
latest   load  of  blame  laid   upon  his
patient shoulders is  enough  to provoke his  indignation—or even Job's.
Controller  Foster   has  had  another,
his periodic, idea.    His last was the
lettering of thc autos used by the permanent  heads  of  departments  as  if
these were delivery wagons, or as if
heads of departments were cheap fellows,   who  would  fritter   their  time
away unless their vehicles were placarded.
The other day Controller Foster
had his periodic idea. Hc solemnly
moved that Engineer Rust be suspended because it was found that thc
bed of the reservoir, when the water
was drawn off, contained dead vegetable ancl other matter which gave
off a villainous smell.
It is conceded that until now the
reservoir could not have been emptied.    Before it could be emptied, it

was necessary to so increase the city's
water supply as to make us independent of thc reservoir. It was necessary to construct a tunnel under the
Bay, and to instal a new pumping
plant. The time having come when
the reservoir could be emptied and
cleaned, the work is being done. And
the decayed matter at the bottom of
it smells badly.
Controller Foster moves, therefore,
that Engineer Rust be suspended.
And we understand that Mr. Rust,
when hc heard the motion, exclaimed:
"Well, what the dickens—"
Wc believe it is the first time in
years that he has used language so
violent. Hc did not finish the sen-
lence. But hc might have asked.
''What the dickens does Controller
Foster think I should havc done?'
lie could not havc drawn the water
off. He could not prevent a weed
(.-rowing or a weed dying there. He
could not prevent a dead weed smelling when, in its state of decay, it was
exposed to the sun.
A little minnow, playing in the pellucid waters of Lake Ontario, ventured beyond its mother's beck and
swam where it had been forbidden to
_.o. Presently it felt itself drawn
t-iong without having to make the
least effort, and fluttered its little litis
with delight at the sensation produc

of the city's water supply, whirled to
its destruction, and its poor little*
mangled remains on the floor

form a basis for a motion by Controller Foster to suspend Engineer
