THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1908

Signs are already accumu-
ficialist lating   that   the   Socialist
animations,    boom in Canada is on the
wane.      The    Convention
jlled this week in Vancouver to select
candidate had to be adjourned because
)' attendance was insufficient to justify
fp transaction of business.   It would not
safe to argue much from a solitary
Icident like this, but close observers have
ticed for some months past that the
tivity of the various Socialist organiza-
pns has sensibly diminished. If this
gured an abandonment of the Socialist
opaganda it might not be regarded as
unmixed evil because however much
|3 thoughtful man may decry the extra-
gances of those who have been known as
|.ders of the Socialist party, he has
vays recognized the germ of truth conned in the propaganda. It is not so
ich the aim of Socialism which is to be
Winced, as the illogical arguments and
impracticable methods of its advocates.
Socialism did no more than arouse pub-
attention to the evils and excrescences
the present social system, it
uld have justified its exist-
:e, and if its disappearance
an active propaganda would
jjdicate a return to apathy and
olence on the part of social
oraners,  then far better  it

ikness, and furnish its op-
tents   with   their   strongest
pon.   The national conven-
of the Socialist  Labour

|tly  nominated   Martin   R.

Id be ludicrous if they were
pitiful; it is not what they
sent but what they represent,
^ch gives them force;   it is
human   suffering   behind
im   which   constitutes   their
lity; it is when he views the misery of
race that the Socialist gives vent to the
hysterical   cry  whicli   Shakespeare
i:ed upon thc lips of Hamlet:
"The world is up-side down
wretched spite that ever I was born
to set it right."
lhe one mistake of the Socialist is the
I mistake of mankind, tlie failure to
.u'stand, and the leaving out of the
of the dominating factor, human
Ire. More than half the tragedies of
1 arise from this same ignorance; we
le from cause to effect; we attribute
lown result to an unknown cause; we
[ce all our judgments to a mathema-
basis; we determine human conduct
|he arbitrary ruling of axioms, but we
out of our calculation the unknown,
EDITORIAL
the uncertain, and the variant element of
human nature itself, with all its impulses
and ambitions, its intuitions and tendencies, and so make tragedy. There was
more wisdom than the world wots of in
the dictum of Alexander Pope, "The proper study of mankind is man." While
his studies should not end there they
should begin there, and the Socialist might
do worse than amend his curriculum, and
abandon, at least for a time, the abstruse
theories of so-called "Social economics"
for a closer examination of human nature
which is the same in all ages but of which
Ave appear to know less in this than in the
proceeding ones.
The   Victoria   Times ' ap-
The Nanaimo    pears to be greatly exercised
Nomination.     0Ver the Conservative nomination  for   the   Nanaimo
Conservative leaders to receive the condolences of the Liberal press. The Times
would have the public believe that Capt.
Wolley, Mr. Helmcken and Mr. Beckwith
have been badly treated, and that their
long and valuable services to the Conservative party have met with base ingratitude.
Unless The Week is greatly mistaken the
gentlemen in question will be as indifferent
to the condolences as they have been to
the criticisms of the Times. They well
know that if either of them had been selected they would at once have become
the butt of all the political venom which
the Times could direct at them; in spite
of the fact that it is now so solicitous for
tlieir interests. There is little doubt that
the Times would have been glad for either
of the gentlemen named to receive the
nomination, and it entirely fails to appreciate- the considerations which led Capt.

constituency. The antics of the Times in
this connection have been distinctly amusing; it has made guesses innumerable all
wide of the mark, and now that Mr. Shepherd has been nominated and even the
Times is obliged to admit that he is an
estimable citizen, who for twenty-eight
years has lived in the constituency with
the respect of his fellows, it is hard put
to make political capital out of the
situation. Since it can say nothing to the
discredit of the nominee, it is devoting
itself to what is surely a work of super-
errogation in offering condolences to gentlemen who might, should, would or could
have been nominated. It is a long time
since so many crocodile tears were shed
over what the Times would have us believe are thc blighted hopes of disappointed candidates. But it is a new development even in partizan journalism for
AVolley to decline nomination. The splendid convention held at Ladysmith goes to
show that Conservatives are able to sink
all tlieir differences and all their personal
ambitions in the interests of their party,
a virtue which the party championed by
the Victoria Times has yet to learn. Mr.
Shepherd will have no more willing and
whole-souled worker than Capt. Wolley,
who is too broad-gauged a man to be sized
up by a narrow guaged Grit. No better
nomination could have been made than that
of Mr. Shepherd, who possesses all the
qualifications of a popular candidate. He
is a life-long Conservative, an almost lifelong resident in the constituency, a man of
education, of special attainments, and of
high personal character. In short he is
not the kind of candidate to suit the Times
which is perhaps his highest recommend
ation. The space devoted to condoling
with Capt. Wolley and other prominent
Conservatives could be better utilized in
furnishing arguments to Mr. Ralph Smith
who will need all the help he can get when
he meets Mr. Shepherd in the campaign.
Defying
The City.
It is not to question the
decision of the Chief Justice in the Carroll case to
say that the result constitutes a menace to public morals and at
the same time places the City in a most
serious position. The appellant is a
notorious woman who has plied an infamous trade in Victoria for many years.
This is a matter of common knowledge
and not disputed. Last year she built a
new and expensive residence in a locality
vetoed by the authorities for the purpose
of continuing her trade. She persisted
in this course although warned by the
police that it would not be tolerated. In
due time the house was opened; the
woman defied the authorities and declared
that no one could stop her, that she should
locate where she pleased and carry on her
trade in spite of everybody. So far she
has been successful, every attempt'to convict her of being the keeper of a disorderly house has failed, although convictions for selling drink without a license
have been sustained, and have brought
with them a notoriety which is absolutely
conclusive as to the character of her house.
The police had no alternative but to assert their authority. They imported unknown men who were successful in securing conclusive evidence. Their evidence
stands today uncontradicted, and the acts
to which they deposed are sufficient apart
from technicality to ensure a conviction.
City Magistrate Jay had no difficulty in
finding to this effect and in the eye of the
law he alone is the arbiter upon the facts.
Then Mr. J. A. Aikman comes on the
scene with an application before the Chief
Justice "in certiorari," to quash the conviction, on the ground that the evidence
did not show a guilty knowledge of the
acts complained of on the part of Carroll.
The application to everyone's amazement
was successful and the conviction was
quashed, and further, unless this decision
is reversed on appeal the prosecution of
the keepers of disorderly houses will be a
thing of the past. To appreciate the full
significance of the decision it must be
borne in mind that in an application ' in
certiorari," the credibility of the witnesses
and the reliability of their evidence is not*
in question, and cannot be canvassed. Tho
Magistrate is supposed to have disposed
of that aspect of the case, the Court is
simply required to determine whether, the
evidence being uiiimpeached, a conviction
is a legal and inevitable consequence. The
point upon whicli the Chief Justice ruled
to the contrary in this case was the absence of evidence to show that Carroll was
present and witnessed the acts complained
of; surely with all respect to the law a
proposition which is a "reductio ad
absurdum." Evasion of such a condition
would bc so easy on the part of every
keeper of such a house that proof of guilty
knowledge would be absolutely impossible,
a conclusion which could never have been
contemplated or intended by the framers
of the law. The Chief Justice may be
perfectly right in his interpretation, but
in the interest of morality, of law and of
order, it is to be sincerely hoped that for
once in an illustrious career he has made
a mistake. THE WBBK, SATURDAY, JULY 18,  1908.

* Corner         h
v	
if By THB LO
! LOUNQEk
For the first time since I came to
live in Victoria I went up the line
on Tuesday to spend a day in the
country. I did not go alone, but
lounged on the fringe of a party who
went to enjoy the hospitality of the
South Cowichan Tennis Club. I cannot say enough of the hospitality dispensed, or of the splendid courts and
beautiful surroundings. It was a revelation to me and to the other visitors who had not been there before.
There were six beautiful grass courts
as level as a billiard table, surrounded
by as fine a group of maples as could
be found in Canada, and only a few
yards away one glimpsed the waters
of the lake. Living in Victoria it is
easy to think, as we are all apt to
think and to say, that we are thrice
blessed, and that nothing could be
better; but it all depends on what
one asks of life. I think it would
be hard to find a more perfect retreat
to automobiles as to many other
instruments in themselves harmless,
but capable of becoming dangerous,
"eternal vigilance is the price of
safety."
The invitation of the promoters of
the Kiltie Show to all loyal Scotsmen
to appear in the national garb "for
this occasion only" did not meet with
a very hearty response. Much might
be said on the subject of kilts, but
in this as in many other matters
"brevity is the soul of wit." There
are some who will never be able to
understand how full grown men can
be induced to disport themselves in
the classic garb of their clan for the
mere delectation of a mob, but such
are "Sassenach brutes." I would
have given a good deal to see a nearby friend who hales from Scotland
in his native garb, but he did not
answer the roll call, and when I saw
the two giants who headed the procession I ceased to wonder at his defection. Of course the day was rather
chilly, and that may have had something to do with it, but after all it
must be admitted that the enthusiasm of the sons of Scotia who reside in Victoria was not very marked,
and long residence in a civilized city
appears to have extinguished their
respect for kilts.

sure it would be impossible to find a
more hospitable colony, and that is
just what it is, and being altogether
English nothing remains to be said.
The voice of protest against the
destruction of our trees gains in
volume and in a certain stridency of
tone which betokens a coming storm.
The courts have, as I anticipated,
granted an injunction to Dr. Hart
and it becomes more than ever a
matter of wonderment how the city
officials can havc thc temerity to continue their iconoclastic work in the
face of public opinion and of thc very
determined attitude of the courts. The
Streets Committee and the City Engineer may as well make up their
minds first as last that no more trees
will be cut down in the public thoroughfares, and the sooner they modify their plans upon these lines the
better for all concerned. It is fortunate that no act of violence has
been provoked by their foolish and
ill-advised procedure.
I am pleased to notice a marked
improvement in the conduct of the
chauffeurs who ply for hire in Victoria; they furnish just one more illustration of the sufficiency of British
law when properly enforced to meet
every case. When the police began
to take action they were told that
thc by-laws could not be complied
with, but a few short weeks of persistent enforcing havc effected all that
could be desired, and within the City
at any rate there are no reckless
drivers at the moment.   With respect
My sympathies are entirely with
Mr. Leonard Solly in his protest
against the condition of our roads
through neglect to remove noxious
weeds and prickly growths which are
so injurious to the dog; but my sympathies go a great deal further than
this as I may have occasion to explain shortly. The action of our
sapient city fathers with reference to
the new by-laws governing the canine
race seems to predicate the extinction
of dogs in a future civilization. The
regulations are almost too stupid to
bc believable. They can never be
enforced and in the interests of their
reputation the members of the Council
would do well to abandon them
forthwith, and consult men who know
something about dogs before they
undertake to legislate man's best
friend out of existence.

Victoria Lawn Tennis Handicap
Tournament, 1908.
BThe Victoria Lawn Tennis Handi-
f.p Tournament which was pulled off
1st week was in many respects most
liccessful. The entries numbered
lie hundred and three, the largest
Ir many years, the number last year
ping sixty. Some of the games were
close and exciting as in an average
[pen  Tournament,  but  perhaps  the
ing and courageous game, which with
accuracy and steadiness that come
from experience will enable her at
no distant date to rank with the lady
champions. Miss Loenholm also
played a greatly improved game.
Too much credit cannot be given
to F. Rome and C. Drake who defeated the brothers Todd in the finals
remarkably well, indeed the play of
Miss Pitts, who appears for the first
time in the Club Tournament, was
one of the most gratifying features
of the week; with practice and a
little more energy she will in the
course of a few years become a formidable rival of her brilliant sister.
Keefer    also played    a greatly    im-
■Mi}**'
Flumerfelt Cup—Miss M. Pitts on left, winner;   Miss V. Pooley on right challenger.
t satisfactory feature was the pro-
ence of young players, and the
ndid fight they made with the
rans. The handicapping Commit-
worked hard to equalize the
ices, and on the whole were suc-
ful. In the end honours were
divided, for of eight final win-
four were players with estab-
reputations and four by corn-
son young players, who for the
time forged their way to the
t.
erhaps the most meritorious win
that of Miss Holmes and Miss
iholm in the Ladies' Doubles, the
er in particular playing a dash-
Lilly
led
for the Men's Doubles. After the
splendid fight which the latter put up
when they vanquished the stars, B.
P. Schwengers and R. H. Pooley, it
looked any odds on them for the
finals, but Rome and Drake rose to
the occasion and their opponents
found that giving odds and receiving
odds are very different propositions;
the winners thoroughly deserved their
victory.
Of the other finalists Miss Pooley
and McDougall had little difficulty in
pulling off the Mixed Doubles. They
were opposed by Miss Gladys Pitts
and P. W. Keefer, who in the earlier
stages of the Tournament had done
proved game, and was one of the
men upon whom the handicappers
failed to get an accurate line.
Probably everyone expected Miss
Marion Pitts to win out in the Flum
erfelt Cup competition, but as the
week wore on and Miss Pooley con
tinued to play really brilliant tennis
there were not a few who favoured
her chance. She is undoubtedly playing much better this year than ever
before; her play is steadier; her stroke
harder and her control of the ball decidedly improved. She has a long,
low hard drive from one corner of
the courts to the other—diagonally,

On a Balcony.
Lo! some wc loved, the loveliest and
the best
That Time and Fate of all their vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or
two before,
And one by one crept silently to rest.
—Omar Khayyam.
This is not Browning's balcony,
nor Juliet's, nor yet the one from
which "The Blessed Damosel" looked
on a fevered world. Nor is my balcony in tropic climes or scorching
desert, where blazing sun beats pitilessly down, and quivering heat
fevers the blood. And yet the day
had been a trying one, by common
consent almost, a record for Victoria,
and restlessness had marked its passing hours. No cool spot could I find.
The sultry, saturating, heat was everywhere. In the shadow of the trees
was no welcome zephyr, even the
acacia leaves hung limp and motionless. As the day wore on, physical
restlessness induced mental uneasiness, and tired brain waited on an
exhausted body.
With the passing of the sun in a
golden glory beyond the Sooke hills
I remembered a balcony and cursed
my forgetfulness that for a whole
sweltering day had left me pining
relicfless. Under the bluest of skies,
in the gathering twilight, I wandered off along a country lane. High
banks of blossomless broom encroached upon the roadway; I looked
between them to the dimpling sea
and beyond to the snow-clad
Olympics.
In silence and in darkness I reached
my balcony. Light or sound would
have been a desecration of this perfect retreat. A soft breeze rippled
the air. Just over the edge of the
cliff lay the brooding waters of the
Straits, away to the left twinkled the
light on Trial Island. The blue sky
darkened to indigo, then across it
spread banks of black cloud, their
coming revealed by the shining of a
light behind the curtain which they
formed. On the surface of the water
fell one silvery band which showed
the tiny wavelets dancing. The band
broadened until I glimpsed a street
of gold, running out from the edge
of the cliff to meet the farther shore.
As the light broadened the clouds
broke and were barred.   Then, as if
with a swift turn, the curtain was
removed and a full moon shone in
all her splendour against the indigo
canopy, and my band was a broad
pathway leading—whither? Cooler
and cooler the air became, and the
lingers of the night smoothed away
the wrinkles of care. Once in a while
I heard the twitter of a finch, the
cracking of a broom pod, or the
gentle swish of water on the shore.
As the night wore on a steady light
at masthead came sailing from the
South, and in a few minutes the swift
carvanserai, with its cargo of human
freight, was but a speck upon thc
verge of light.
But this I heeded little, for once I
was far from the madding crowd,
and far from care, and far from
thoughts of aught but rest and peace
and memories. Poets have sung of
scenes less fair, and the wisest of
men have found solace in the various
moods of nature. One of the wisest
enjoined communion with her "whose
touch has still its healing power."
Some seek solitude in the whispering
woods, others on the murmuring
waves, but I found it "on a balcony"
from which I saw the golden bar of
light that danced upon the waves,
but more than that, "the light that
never was  on land or sea."

Robert Mantell.
Robert Mantell has paid his first
visit to Victoria; he has appeared
twice at the theatre and has been entertained as the guest of the Canadian
Club. With respect to the latter incident it may at once be said that the
Club is to be congratulated on having
gone outside the beaten track to entertain a man of Mr. Mantell's distinction in a profession which receives
too little recognition from our representative institutions.
With respect to his theatrical work,
it is difficult to know where to begin
and what to say. From personal
knowledge extending over the whole
of his career, I ventured to speak of
him in advance in terms which some
people considered extravagant; I have
had the satisfaction of reading in both
the daily papers that he is the greatest Shakespearean actor ever seen in
Victoria, a verdict which is thoroughly
endorsed by all who had the privilege
of seeing him.
It is not my intention to give a detailed criticism of the two roles which
he essayed. Of the two I still think
that his Othello is the finer, mainly
because he is temperamentally better
suited to the part than to Hamlet.
Mr. Mantell is essentially a robust
actor, and in spite of the excellence
of what may be called minor passages
he scores his most marked success
and achieves his greatest success when
he rises to the heights of passionate
declamation. The finest moment of
the two nights was at the end of the
Players' scene in Hamlet, when he
fastened the guilt of his Father's murder upon his Uncle, and denounced
him. Critics have always been divided
in opinion as to whether the Players'
scene or the scene between Hamlet
and his Mother is the greater. My
view is that it depends entirely on the
actor. Edmund Kean, admittedly the
greatest Hamlet since Garrick, favoured the latter, and was generally
conceded to have reached the
high-water mark of excellence in
its portrayal. Fechter and G. V.
Brooke triumphed in the Players'
act. Of latter day tragedians, Irving
Forbes Robertson and Mansfield were
stronger in the boudoir scene, Mantell
in my judgment in the other.
For a piece of sustained convincing
acting, hurried along with resistless
impetuosity to a dramatic conclusion
nothing finer could be conceived than
Mr. Mantell's work in this great
scene. From the moment he came on
the stage, with a half-assumed air of
indifference, and especially from the
moment when he reclined at Ophelia's
feet and nervously dangled her fan,
his wits meanwhile all alert, and a set
purpose evident, the audience followed him breathlessly, and when
heaping accusation on accusation he
grasped the affrighted King, and the
scene broke up in general confusion,
the audience had one of those rare
thrills, which is the highest testimony
to genius.
But 1 must not linger on Mr. Mantell's really brilliant interpretation of
Hamlet, but hark back to Monday
night, when he played Othello as no
man living can begin to play the
part, and as no man has played it
since the days of Salvini the elder.
Mr. Mantell looks and lives the part
of the swarthy Moor, in build, in
make-up in barbaric gesture, and in
voice he is absolutely perfect. What
a difference between the deep, bass
organ, with its limited range and the
flexible, weak, lighter tones, which
characterized the voice of Hamlet.
There were only odd moments when
one could readily conceive that they
were listening to the same actor.
Mr. Mantell has modelled his
Othello on that of Salvini, with whom
he vies in ruggedness, barbaric splendour, and natural force. No one who
had followed him closely through the
stormy scenes of the play could have
anticipated the tenderness which he
infused into the murder scene. It was
easy to see that the great heart, was
broken and that his thoughts were
more of the lost Desdemona than of
revenge. It is impossible not to admire Mr. Mantell's exquisite rendering
of the death speech beginning, "I have
done the State some service." Many
actors, great ones, render this as if it
were an oration; it fell from Mr.
Mantell's lips almost like a soliloquy,
and was infinitely more pathetic, more
convincing and more natural.
Even great actors have their limitations, and Mr. Mantell is no exception, he was handicapped to some extent by adopting the Mansfield version, which is emasculated to suit the
susceptibilities of Boston audiences,
and which suffers greatly in the process. Shakespeare requ.ir.es no polishing, and the attempt induces affectation.
Mr. Mantell, despite his greatness,
has one personal limitation; he is not
profoundly intellectual. His work is
not suggestive. He plays rather for
the public than for the student. Not
for a moment can this be considered
a defect in one of his vocation but in
instituting a comparison with his predecessors in such classic roles the
point cannot be overlooked. Of no
Shakespearean actor, at any rate since
the days of Kean, can it be said that
he was great in all parts. In the long
roll so admirably played by Irving,
only one real success was scored—
Shylock. Every part was popular and
drew crowded houses, but when thc
glamour of the magnificent setting
and the brilliant support receded in
the distance, and the individual work
of the actor stood out, it was admitted that even in his own time others
had excelled him in every part but
that of the Jew. And so it is too
much to expect from Mr. Mantell
more than one or two really transcendent portrayals, and unless I am
greatly mistaken the best judges will
crown him for Othello and King Lear.
Mr. Mantell will be heard in Victoria again. If he lives, this is inevitable, and if next time he appears
in a new theatre with proper stage
accessories, his success will be more
notable though it cannot be more
emphatic than that achieved on the
occasion of his first visit.

The New Grand.
Next week's bill will be headed by
Juno Salmo, an act that has been
featured in Europe, and in London
at the Empire Theatre of Varieties
proved a great drawing card. His
performance is absolutely novel and
consists of some astounding feats on
a trapeze, which is represented as
hung in the infernal regions. The
effects are extremely wierd and most
curios. Another big feature will be
Terley, in an act of impersonations
which is described as nothing short of
magnificent. It includes an illusion

Chintz, etc.—nor the fact that our
expert's advice and assistance are
always at yonr service without charge.
The majority of windows in new
homes are built for Casement Curtains. In addition to being the most
artistic of all curtains they have the
additional advantage of being very
economical. If you are building a
new home, it will repay you to have
our expert figure ont the Casement
Curtain scheme.
GENUINE DRESDEN CHINA.
A superb selection of A. Sachs' Dresden Fruit Stands,
each piece is a work of art, literally covered with dainty
artistic figures. Every china cabinet and banquet table

hich very much resembles her broiler's famous stroke and which is
lmost unplayable. As long as she
ept the ball near the side it was
arely returned. In the final, how-
ver, the cupholder upset all calcu-
tions in favour of Miss Pooley, and
must in fairness be admitted that
he outclassed her opponent. She
'as more active, more flexible and
lore versatile in her style, her back-
and stroke in particular being ef-
ictive. She won out rather easily,
nd in view of the fact that she was
ot really extended, it is still a moot
oint as to what Miss Pitts could
0 at her best.
The    other   final    between B. P.
ichwengers and C. S. Jephson will
png be memorable in the annals of
de Belcher St.  Courts.    With two
ets all, the issue was in doubt.   On
le previous play, when the fifth set
iegan, it was a toss-up who would
in, and if the champion  had not
dopted entirely different tactics he
lould have gone down to defeat. He
;on out by ''going after" his oppon-
it, playing at his full strength and
top speed.   This policy discovered
iphson's    weakness,    and    enabled
ihwengers to establish a somewhat
lonounced victory in the fifth set.
_fore the    match    Schwengers ex-
essed   the   opinion   that   Jephson
ould win, for   said    he, "Nobody
.ows just how good  Jephson is."
lis opinion is a remarkable testi-
pny to Schwengers' judgment; just
' the final result was an equally re-
'irkable confirmation of the handi-
ppers' estimate.
:As this was easily the most im-
irtant match of the series it may
1 interesting to analyze the record
as shown by the Umpire's sheet. In
the series of five- sets Schwengers
won 249 strokes to Jephson's 155.
Game by game the strokes were as
follows: First game, Schwengers 51,
Jephson 30; second game, Schwengers 38, Jephson 36; third game,
Schwengers 71, Jephson 37; fourth
game, Schwengers 48, Jephson 35;
fifth game, Schwengers 40, Jephson
17. A second analysis is even more
interesting, because it affords an excellent test of the handicapping. It
is worked out thus: Eliminating the
strokes which Schwengers had to
make to work off his handicap the
result is as follows:—First game,
Schwengers 31, Jephson 30; second
game, Schwengers 23, Jephson 36;
fourth game, Schwengers 40, Jephson 37; fifth game, Schwengers' 21,
Jephson 35; sixth game, Schwengers
24, Jephson 17, a total of, Schwengers 138, Jephson 155. So nearly did
the handicappers' bring these players
together that in the course of five
sets, comprising fifty-two games,
there was only a difference, outside
the handicap, of seventeen strokes.
The features of this remarkable
match were the strength and accuracy of Schwengers' play, and the dexterity and resourcefulness of Jephson's. The latter is one of the prettiest players ever seen on the Victoria Courts, his forte being recovery
from apparently hopeless positions.
He must have learned his tennis in
a good school, and at the present
time can be classed amongst the best
players in the Province.
The tournament, which was well attended by the general public, is a
splendid indication of what may be
expected in the future. With an addition of forty members to the Club
this year and a large number of
young players coming to the front,
the prospects are most hopeful, and
there will be a general concensus of
opinion that the time has come for
acquiring permanent grounds commensurate to the requirements of a
club which now numbers nearly two
hundred.
It would not be fair to close this
account without recognition of the
admirable manner in which Mrs.
Genge and the Ladies' Committee
catered for the members and their
friends. The furnishing of refreshments for sixty or eighty people
every afternoon involved no little
preparation and hard work, which was
cheerfully undertaken by the Ladies'
Committee.

"Those responsible for the management of last week's handicap tennis
tournament are entitled to unstinted
praise. The games were brought off
systematically. There wasn't a hitch
from the opening day, every class being worked off to the finals by Saturday and the deciding matches being
brought so close to scheduled time
that all enthusiasts were able to witness those* they were anxious to set-
by keeping themselves posted. Thc
players are all right; so are the officials; but the courts badly need
fixing.—Colonist.
Sporting
Comment.
, The Bellingham ball players went
down before the Victoria team at Oak-
Bay last Saturday in a very tedious
game which had very few interesting
points. The game was late in starling owing to the visitors travelling by
thc Chippewa. This, however, cannot
bc put down tn them as they intended
taking passage on thc Princess Victoria, but owing to some sharp practice on the part of the steamboat
owners in Seattle they were held on
board the boat in Seattle until after
the departure of the Victoria. The
game itself was very uninteresting to
watch.    The first innings proved the
undoing for the visitors when they
very kindly threw the ball away and
allowed the home boys to score three
runs. After this neither team had any
the best of it but the locals managed
to hold their lead and run out winners. The local team will not be playing this afternoon, the grounds being
given over to the Caledonia Society
for its annual sports.
As an example how the Inland
Navigation Company is assisting Victoria it was shown this week when at
the request of the local baseball club
the management of the steamboat
company absolutely refused to hold
the Chippewa for a couple of hours to
enable the Seattle league team to get
home, in consequence of this the Victoria fans will be deprived of the
pleasure of witnessing the Seattle
team in action. Manager Dugdale of
the Seattle team was in town on Saturday evening last and arranged with
Manager Willie that these teams
should play at Oak Bay on Monday.
These arrangements are off owing to
the failure of the steamboat company
to come to their assistance.
The next match in which the locals
take part will be played at Oak Bay
one week today, the opponents being
the Websters of Seattle. According
to Manager Dugdale this team is the
fastest outside of the regular league
teams and if the locals manage to
lower their colors it will be a big
feather in their caps.
At last the baseball fans are supplied with the daily scores of ^he
Northwest league in the local dailies.
I have dwelt on this subject several
times, but never with as much pleasure as this, and I am pleased to see
that the request of many fans has at
last been- acceded to.
This afternoon the local lacrosse
players will try conclusions with the
Maple Leafs at the Royal Athletic
Park. From all accounts this should
be a good game and despite their
many setbacks I pick the locals to
win. The team as a whole has never
been in better shape and they will
set a pace that will be hard for their
opponents to mairttain. The game will
start at 3 o'clock and I hope there will
be a good turn out.

A Nature Note.
"Crows are hardy birds," remarked
the boarder. "In cold weather I have
known them to go five days without
food."
"That's nothing," chuckled the comedian boarder, "I've known crows to
go five months without food."
Great Scott!! What kind of crows
were they?"
"Why, scarecrows, of course."

Signs are already accumu-

safe to argue much from a solitary
trident like this, but close observers have
priced for some months past that the
itivity of the various Socialist organiza-
|ons has sensibly diminished.    If this
igured an abandonment of the Socialist
•opaganda it might not be regarded as
1 unmixed evil because however much
[e thoughtful man may decry the extra-
jgances of those who have been known as
iders of  the   Socialist  party,   he has
jtvays recognized the germ of truth con-
ined in the propaganda.    It is not so
ich the aim of Socialism which is to be
lounced, as the illogical arguments and
impracticable methods of its advocates.
Socialism did no more than arouse pub-
attention to the evils and excrescences
the present social system, it
raid have justified its exist-
|ce, and if its disappearance
an active propaganda would
idicate a return to apathy and
lolence on the part of social
formers,  then far  better  it
Ire kept alive even at the cost
some extravagances.   But it
these   very   extravagances
ich   constitute   its ' greatest
|akness, and furnish its op-
Lents   with   their   strongest
[apon.   The national conven-
of the  Socialist Labour
|rty of the United States re-
Ltly  nominated   Martin   R.
leston as their candidate for
Presidency,  and yet this
in is several years younger
m the constitutional age re-
irement, and is at present in
»1 serving a twenty-five years'
itence in the Nevada State
lison for the  murder  of  a
»on keeper at Goldfield. The
tform of the Socialist Labour
rty declares for a co-opera-
Commonwealth to replace
ie present state of Social dis-
ler," and apparently would
it by making  a convicted
lirderer   the   ruler   of   thc
latest Republic in the world,
e antics of Socialist leaders
luld be ludicrous if tlicy were
pitiful; it is not what they
psent but what they represent,
dch gives them force;   it i*
human   suffering   behind
nn   which   constitutes   their
lity; it is when he views the misery of
race that the Socialist gives vent to the
hysterical   cry  whicli   Shakespeare
ied upon the lips of Hamlet:
"The world is up-side down
l! wretched spite that ever I was born
to set it right."
fhe one mistake of the Socialist is the
mistake of mankind, the failure to
Jerstand, and the leaving out of the
of   the  dominating  factor,   human
ire.   More than half the tragedies of
arise from this same ignorance;   we
lie from cause to effect; we attribute

basis;  we determine human conduct
[he arbitrary ruling of axioms, but we
Ire out of our calculation the unknown,

the uncertain, and the variant element of
human nature itself, with all its impulses
and ambitions, its intuitions and tendencies, and so make tragedy. There was
more wisdom than the world wots of in
the dictum of Alexander Pope, "The proper study of mankind is man." While
his studies should not end there they
should begin there, and the Socialist might
do worse than amend his curriculum, and
abandon, at least for a time, the abstruse
theories of so-called "Social economics"
for a closer examination of human nature
which is the same in all ages but of which
we appear to know less in this than in the
proceeding ones.
The   Victoria   Times   ap-
The Nanaimo   pears to be greatly exercised
Nomination.     0ver the Conservative nomination  for   the   Nanaimo
Conservative leaders to receive the condolences of the Liberal press. The Times
would have the public believe that Capt.
Wolley, Mr. Helmcken and Mr. Beckwith
have been badly treated, and that their
long and valuable services to the Conservative party have met with base ingratitude.
Unless The Week is greatly mistaken the
gentlemen in question will be as indifferent
to the condolences as they have been to
the criticisms of the Times. They well
know that if either of them had been selected they would at once have become
the butt of all the political venom which
the Times could direct at them; in spite
of the fact that it is now so solicitous for
their interests. There is little doubt that
the Times would have been glad for either
of the gentlemen named to receive the
nomination, and it entirely fails to appreciate the considerations which led Capt.

constituency. The antics of the Times in
this connection have been distinctly amusing; it has made guesses innumerable all
wide of tlie mark, and now that Mr. Shepherd lias been nominated and even the
Times is obliged to admit that he is an
estimable citizen, who for twenty-eight
years has lived in the constituency with
the respect of his fellows, it is hard put
to make political capital out of the
situation. Since it can say nothing to the
discredit of the nominee, it is devoting
itself io what is surely a work of supcr-
errogation in offering condolences to gen-
tlemen who might, should, would or could
have been nominated. It is a long time
since so mnny crocodile tears were shed
over what the Times would have us believe are the blighted hopes of disappointed candidates. But it is a new development even in pnrtizan journalism for
Wolley to decline nomination. The splendid convention held at Ladysmith goes to
show that Conservatives are able to sink
all their differences and all their personal
ambitions in the interests of tlieir party,
a virtue which the party championed by
the Victoria Times has yet to learn. Mr.
Shepherd will have no more willing and
whole-souled worker than Capt. AVolley,
who is too broad-gauged a man to be sized
up by a narrow guaged Grit. No better
nomination could havc been made than that
of Mr. Shepherd, who possesses all the
qualifications of a popular candidate. He
is a life-long Conservative, an almost lifelong resident in the constituency, a man of
education, of special attainments, and of
high personal character. In short he is
not the kind of candidate to suit thc Times
which is perhaps his highest recommend
ation. The space devoted to condoling
with Capt. Wolley and other prominent
Conservatives could be better utilized in
furnishing arguments to Mr. Ralph Smith
who will need all the help he can get when
he meets Mr. Shepherd in the campaign.
Defying
It is not to question the
decision of the Chief Jus-
The City. tice in the Carroll case to
say that the result constitutes a menace to public morals and at
the same time places the City in a most
serious position. The appellant is a
notorious woman who has plied an infamous trade in Victoria for many years.
This is a matter of common knowledge
and not disputed. Last year she built a
new and expensive residence in a locality
vetoed by the authorities for the purpose
of continuing her trade. She persisted
in this course although warned by the
police that it would not be tolerated. In
due time the house was opened; the
woman defied the authorities and declared
that no one could stop her, that she should
locate where she pleased and carry on her
trade in spite of everybody. So far she
has been successful, every attempt to convict her of being the keeper of a disorderly house has failed, although convictions for selling drink without a license
have been sustained, and have brought
with them a notoriety which is absolutely
conclusive as to the character of her house.
The police had no alternative but to assert their authority. They imported unknown men who were successful in securing conclusive evidence. Their evidence
stands today uncontradicted, and the acts
to which they deposed are sufficient apart
from technicality to ensure a conviction.
City Magistrate Jay had no difficulty in
finding to this effect and in the eye of the
law he alone is the arbiter upon the facts.
Then Mr. J. A. Aikman comes on the
scene with an application before the Chief
Justice "in certiorari," to quash the conviction, on the ground that the evidence
did not show a guilty knowledge of the
acts complained of on the part of Carroll.
The application to everyone's amazement
was successful and the conviction was
quashed, and further, unless this decision
is reversed on appeal the prosecution of
the keepers of disorderly houses will be a
thing of the past. To appreciate the full
significance of the decision it must be
borne in mind that in an application ''in
certiorari," the credibility of the witnesses
and the reliability of their evidence is not
in question, and cannot be canvassed. The
Magistrate is supposed to have disposed
of that aspect of the case, the Court is
simply required to determine whether, the
evidence being unimpeached, a conviction
is a legal and inevitable consequence. The
point upon which the Chief Justice ruled
to the contrary in this case was the absence of evidence to show that Carroll was
present and witnessed the acts complained
of; surely with all respect to the law a
proposition which is a "reductio ad
absurdum." Evasion of such a condition
would bc so easy on the part of every
keeper of such a house that proof of guilty
knowledge would be absolutely impossible,
a conclusion which could never have been
contemplated or intended by thc framers
of the law. The Chief Justice may be
perfectly right in his interpretation, but
iu the interest of morality, of law and of
order, it is to he sincerely hoped that for
once in an illustrious career he has made
a mistake. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY i8,  1908.

^^/w^/M^V»fc_.^/w "*%/*£
For the first time since I came to
live in Victoria I went up the line
on Tuesday to spend a day in the
country. I did not go alone, but
lounged on the fringe of a party who
went to enjoy the hospitality of the
South Cowichan Tennis Club. I cannot say enough of the hospitality dispensed, or of the splendid courts and
beautiful surroundings. It was a revelation to me and to the other visitors who had not been there before.
There were six beautiful grass courts
as level as a billiard table, surrounded
by as fine a group of maples as could
be found in Canada, and only a few
yards away one glimpsed the waters
of the lake. Living in Victoria it is
easy to think, as we are all apt to
think and to say, that we are thrice
blessed, and that nothing could be
better; but it all depends on what
one asks of life. I think it would
be hard to find a more perfect retreat
to automobiles as to many other
instruments in themselves harmless,
but capable of becoming dangerous,
"eternal vigilance is the price of
safety."
The invitation of the promoters of
the Kiltie Show to all loyal Scotsmen
to appear in the national garb "for
this occasion only" did not meet with
a very hearty response. Much might
be said on the subject of kilts, but
in this as in many other matters
"brevity is the soul of wit." There
are some who will never be able to
understand how full grown men can
be induced to disport themselves in
the classic garb of their clan for the
mere delectation of a mob, but such
are "Sassenach brutes." I would
have given a good deal to see a nearby friend who hales from Scotland
in his native garb, but he did not
answer the roll call, and when I saw
the two giants who headed the procession I ceased to wonder at his defection. Of course the day was ratner
chilly, and that may have had something to do with it, but after all it
must be admitted that the enthusiasm of the sons of Scotia who reside in Victoria was not very marked,
and long residence in a civilized city
appears to have extinguished their
respect for kilts.

than the Duncans district. 1 am
sure it would be impossible to find a
more hospitable colony, and that is
just what it is, and being altogether
English nothing remains to be said.
The voice of protest against the
destruction of our trees gains in
volume and in u certain stridency of
tone which betokens a coming storm.
The courts have, as 1 anticipated,
granted an injunction to Dr. Hart
and it becomes more than ever a
matter of wonderment how the city
officials can havc the temerity to continue their iconoclastic work in the
face of public opinion and of the very
determined attitude of the courts. The
Streets Committee and the City Engineer may as well make up their
minds first as last that no more trees
will be cut down in the public thoroughfares, and the sooner they modify their plans upon these lines the
better for all concerned. It is fortunate that no act of violence has
been provoked by their foolish and
ill-advised procedure.
I am pleased to notice a marked
improvement in the conduct of the
chauffeurs who ply for hire in Victoria; they furnish just one more illustration of the sufficiency of British
law when properly enforced to meet
every case. When the police began
to take action they were told that
the by-laws could not be complied
with, but a few short weeks of persistent enforcing have effected all that
could be desired, and within the City
at any rate there arc no reckless
drivers at the moment.   With respect
My sympathies are entirely with
Mr. Leonard Solly in his protest
against thc condition of our roads
through neglect to remove noxious
weeds and prickly growths which are
so injurious to the dog; but my sympathies go a great deal further than
this as 1 may have occasion to explain shortly. The action of our
sapient city fathers with reference to
the new by-laws governing the canine
race seems to predicate the extinction
of dogs in a future civilization. The
regulations are almost too stupid to
be believable. They can never be
enforced and in the interests of their
reputation the members of the Council
would do well to abandon them
forthwith, and consult men who know
something about dogs before they
undertake . to legislate man's best
friend out of existence.

Victoria Lawn Tennis Handicap
Tournament, 1908.
The Victoria Lawn Tennis Handi-
Tournament which was pulled off
t week was in many respects most
cessful. The entries numbered
hundred and three, the largest
many years, the r*"*mber last year
ng sixty. Some of the games were
close and exciting as in an average
>en  Tournament,  but  perhaps  the
ing and courageous game, which with
accuracy and steadiness that come
from experience will enable her at
no distant date to rank with the lady
champions. Miss Loenholm also
played a greatly improved game.
Too much credit cannot be given
to F. Rome and G Drake who defeated the brothers Todd in the finals
remarkably well, indeed the play of
Miss Pitts, who appears for the first
time in the Club Tournament, was
one of the most gratifying features
of the week; with practice and a
little more energy she will in the
course of a few years become a formidable rival of her brilliant sister.
Keefer    also played    a greatly    im-
Flumerfelt   Cup—Miss   M.   Pitts   on   left, winner:   Mrs. V. Pooley on right, challenger.
it satisfactory feature was the pro-
ence of young players, and the
:ndid fight they made with the
rans.   The handicapping Commit-
worked hard to equalize the
ices, and on the whole were suc-
iful. In the end honours were
illy divided, for of eight final win-
four were players with estab-
ed reputations and four by corn-
son young players, who for the
: time forged their way to the
it.
erhaps the most meritorious win
that of Miss Holmes and Miss
nholm in the Ladies' Doubles, the
ner in particular playing a dash-
for the Men's Doubles. After the
splendid fight which the latter put up
when they vanquished the stars, B.
P. Schwengers and R. H. Pooley, it
looked any odds on them for the
finals, but Rome and Drake rose to
the occasion and their opponents
found that giving odds and receiving
odds are very different propositions;
the winners thoroughly deserved their
victory.
Of the other finalists Miss Pooley
and McDougall had little difficulty in
pulling off the Mixed Doubles. They
were opposed by Miss Gladys Pitts
and P. W. Keefer, who in the earlier
stages of the Tournament had done
proved game, and t*was one of the
men upon whom the handicappers
failed to get an accurate line.
Probably everyone expected' Miss
Marion Pitts to win out in the Flumerfelt Cup competition, but as the
week wore on and Miss Pooley continued to play really brilliant tennis
there were not a few who favoured
her chance. She is undoubtedly playing much better this year than ever
before; her play is steadier; her stroke
harder and her control of the ball decidedly improved. She has a long,
low hard drive from one corner of
thc courts to the other—diagonally,

On a Balcony.
Lo! some we loved, the loveliest and
the best
That Time and Fate of all tlieir vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or
two before,
And one by one crept silently to rest.
—Omar Khayyam.
This is not Browning's balcony,
nor Juliet's, nor yet the one from
which "The Blessed Damosel" looked
on a fevered world. Nor is my balcony in tropic climes or scorching
desert, where blazing sun beats pitilessly down, and quivering heat
fevers the blood. Aud yet the day
had been a trying one, by common
consent almost a record for Victoria,
and restlessness had marked its passing hours. No cool spot could I find.
Thc sultry, saturating, heat was everywhere. In the shadow of the trees
was no welcome zephyr, even the
acacia leaves hung limp and motionless. As the day wore on, physical
restlessness induced mental uneasiness, and tired brain waited on an
exhausted body.
With the passing of the sun in a
golden glory beyond the Sooke hills
I remembered a balcony and cursed
my forgetfulness that for a whole
sweltering day had left me pining
reliefless. Under the bluest of skies,
in the gathering twilight, I wandered off along a country lane. High
banks of blossomless broom encroached upon the roadway; I looked
between them to the dimpling sea
and beyond to the snow-clad
Olympics.
In silence and in darkness I reached
my balcony. Light or sound would
have been a desecration of this perfect retreat. A soft breeze rippled
the air. Just over the edge of the
cliff lay thc brooding waters of the
Straits, away to the left twinkled the
light on Trial Island. The blue sky
darkened to indigo, then across it
spread banks of black cloud, their
coming revealed by the shining of a
light behind the curtain which they
formed. On the surface of the water
fell one silvery band which showed
the tiny wavelets dancing. The band
broadened until I glimpsed a street
of gold, running out from the edge
of tlie cliff to meet the farther shore.
As the light broadened the clouds
broke and were barred.   Then, as if
with a swift turn, the curtain was
removed and a full moon shone in
all her splendour against the indigo
canopy, and my band was a broad
pathway leading—whither? Cooler
and cooler the air became, and the
lingers of the night smoothed away
the wrinkles of care. Once in a while
I heard the twitter of a finch, the
cracking of a broom pod, or the
gentle swish of water on the shore.
As the night wore on a steady light
at masthead came sailing from the
South, and in a few minutes the swift
carvanserai, with its cargo of human
freight, was but a speck upon thc
verge of light.
But this I heeded little, for once I
was far from the madding crowd,
and far from care, and far from
thoughts of aught but rest and peace
and memories. Poets have sung of
scenes less fair, and the wisest of
men have found solace in the various
moods of nature. One of the wisest
enjoined communion with her "whose
touch has still its healing power."
Some seek solitude in the whispering
woods, others on the murmuring
waves, but I found it "on a balcony"
from which I saw the golden bar of
light that danced upon the waves,
but more than that, "the light that
never was on land or sea."

X   The Drama. J
Robert Mantell.
Robert Mantell has paid his first
visit to Victoria; he has appeared
twice at the theatre and has been entertained as the guest of the Canadian
Club. With respect to the latter incident it may at once be said that the
Club is to be congratulated on having
gone outside the beaten track to entertain a man of Mr. Mantell's distinction in a profession which receives
too little recognition from our representative institutions.
With respect to his theatrical work,
it is difficult to know where to begin
and what to say. From personal
knowledge extending over the whole
of his career, I ventured to speak of
him in advance in terms which some
people considered extravagant; I have
had the satisfaction of reading in both
the daily papers that he is the greatest Shakespearean actor ever seen in
Victoria, a verdict which is thoroughly
endorsed by all who had the privilege
of seeing him.
It is not my intention to give a detailed criticism of the two roles which
he essayed. Of tllfe-two I still think
that his Othello is the finer, mainly
because he is temperamentally better
suited to the part than to Hamlet.
Mr. Mantell is essentially a robust
actor, and in spite of the excellence
of what may be called minor passages
he scores his most marked success
and achieves his greatest success when
he rises to the heights of passionate
declamation. The finest moment of
the two nights was at the end of the
Players' scene in Hamlet, when he
fastened the guilt of his Father's murder upon his Uncle, and denounced
him. Critics havc always been divided
in opinion as to whether the Players'
scene or the scene between Hamlet
and his Mother is the greater. My
view is that it depends entirely on thc
actor. Edmund Kean, admittedly the
greatest Hamlet since Garrick, favoured the latter, and was generally
conceded to have reached the
high-water mark of excellence in
its portrayal. Fechter and G, V.
Brooke triumphed in the Players'
act. Of latter day tragedians, Irving
Forbes Robertson and Mansfield were
stronger in the boudoir scene, Mantell
in my judgment in the other.
For a piece of sustained convincing
acting, hurried along with resistless
impetuosity to a dramatic conclusion
nothing finer could be conceived than
Mr. Mantell's work in this great
scene. From the moment he came on
thc stage, with a half-assumed air of
indifference, and especially from the
moment when he reclined at Ophelia's
feet and nervously dangled her fan,
his wits meanwhile all alert, and a set
purpose evident, the audience followed him breathlessly, and when
heaping accusation on accusation he
grasped the affrighted King, and the
scene broke up in general confusion,
the audience had one of those rare
thrills, which is the highest testimony
to genius.
But I must not linger on Mr. Mantell's really brilliant interpretation of
Hamlet, but hark back to Monday
night, when he played Othello as no
man living can begin to play the
part, and as no man has played it
since  the  days of  Salvini the  elder.
Mr. Mantell looks and lives the part
of the swarthy Moor, in build, in
make-up in barbaric gesture, and in
voice he is. absolutely perfect. What
a difference between the deep, bass
organ, with its limited range and the
flexible, weak, lighter tones, which
characterized the voice of Hamlet.
There were only odd moments when
one could readily conceive that they
were listening to the same actor.
Mr.. Mantell has modelled his
Othello on that of Salvini, with whom
he vies in ruggedness, barbaric splendour, and natural force. No one who
had followed him closely through the
stormy scenes of the play could have
anticipated the tenderness which he
infused into the murder scene. It was
easy to see that the great heart was
broken and that his thoughts were
more of the lost Desdemona than of
revenge. It is impossible not to admire Mr. Mantell's exquisite rendering
of the death speech beginning, "I have
done the State some service." Many
actors, great ones, render this as if it
were an oration; it fell from Mr.
Mantell's lips almost like a soliloquy,
and was infinitely more pathetic, more
convincing and more natural.
Even great actors have their limitations; and Mr. Mantell is no exception, he was handicapped to some extent by adopting the Mansfield version, which is emasculated to suit the
susceptibilities of Boston audiences,
and which suffers greatly in the process. ShakespeafS requires no polishing, and the attempt induces affectation.
Mr. Mantell, despite his greatness,
has one personal limitation; he is not
profoundly intellectual. His work is
not suggestive. He plays rather for
the public than for the student. Not
for a moment can this be considered
a defect in one of his vocation but in
instituting a comparison with his predecessors in such classic roles the
point cannot be overlooked. Of no
Shakespearean actor, at any rate since
the days of Kean, can it be said that
he was great in all parts. In the long
roll so admirably played by Irving,
only one real success was scored—
Shylock. Every part was popular and
drew crowded houses, but when the
glamour of the magnificent setting
and the brilliant support receded in
the distance, and the individual work
of the actor stood out, it was admitted that even in his own time others
had excelled him in every part but
that of the Jew. And so it is too
much to expect from Mr. Mantell
more than one or two really transcendent portrayals, and unless I am
greatly mistaken the best judges will
crown him for Othello and King Lear.
Mr. Mantell will be heard in Victoria again. If he lives, this is inevitable, and if next time he appears
in a new theatre with proper stage
accessories, his success will be more
notable though it cannot be more
emphatic than that achieved on the
occasion of his first visit.

featured in Europe, and in London
at the Empire Theatre of Varieties

performance is absolutely novel and

The Art of Curtainry
CASEMENT CURTAINS.
Everybody knows we make a leading feature of Casement Curtains,
but few realise the wealth of materials we stock for this branch of
our business—such as Alpaca, Bermuda Cloth, Challic Cloth, Art Linens,
Chintz, etc.—nor the fact that our
expert's advice and assistance are
always at your service without charge.
The majority of windows in new
homes are built for Casement Curtains. In addition to being the most
artistic of all curtains they have the
additional advantage of being very
economical. If you are building a
new home, it will repay you to have
our expert figure out the Casement
Curtain scheme.
GENUINE DRESDEN CHINA.
A superb selection of A. Sachs' Dresden Fruit Stands,
each piece is a work of art, literally covered with dainty
artistic figures. Every china cabinet and banquet table
should contain one of these exquisite productions,

lich very much resembles her bro-
:r's famous stroke and which is
nost unplayable. As long as she
pt the ball near the side it was
•ely returned. In the final, how-
;r, the cupholder upset all calcu-
ions in favour of Miss Pooley, and
must in fairness be admitted that
outclassed her opponent. She
s more active, more flexible and
ire versatile in her style, her back-
nd stroke in particular being ef-
:tive. She won out rather easily,
1 in view of the fact that she was
t really extended, it is still a moot
int as to what Miss Pitts could
at her best.
The other final between B. P.
hwengers and C. S. Jephson will
ig be memorable in the annals of
Belcher St. Courts. With two
:s all, the issue was in doubt. On
r previous play, when the fifth set
jan, it was a toss-up who would
n, and if the champion had not
jpted entirely different tactics he
[uld have gone down to defeat. He
n out by "going after" his oppon-
, playing at his full strength and
top speed. This policy discovered
ihson's weakness, and enabled
irwengers to establish a somewhat
nounced victory in the fifth, set.
ore the match Schwengers ex-
Ssed the opinion that Jephson
'ild win, for said he, "Nobody
>ws just how good Jephson is."
,s opinion is a remarkable testify to Schwengers' judgment; just
fhe final result was an equally re-
,-kable confirmation of the handi-
pers' estimate.
s this was easily the most im-
;tant match of the series it may
interesting to analyze the record
iu
as shown by the Umpire's sheet. In
the series of five sets Schwengers
won 249 strokes to Jephson's 155.
Game by game the strokes were as
follows: First game, Schwengers 51,
Jephson 30; second game, Schwengers 38, Jephson 36; third game,
Schwengers 71, Jephson 37; fourth
game, Schwengers 48, Jephson 35;
fifth game, Schwengers 40, Jephson
17. A second analysis is even more
interesting, because it affords an excellent test of the handicapping. It
is worked out thus: Eliminating the
strokes which Schwengers had to
make to work off his handicap the
result is as follows:—First game,
Schwengers 31, Jephson 30; second
game, Schwengers 23, Jephson 36;
fourth game, Schwengers 40, Jephson 37; fifth game, Schwengers 21,
Jephson 35; sixth game, Schwengers
24, Jephson 17, a total of, Schwengers 138, Jephson 155. So nearly did
the handicappers' bring these players
together that in the course of five
sets, comprising fifty-two games,
there was only a difference, outside
the handicap, of seventeen strokes.
The features of this remarkable
match were the strength and accuracy of Schwengers' play, and the dexterity and resourcefulness of Jephson's. The latter is one of the prettiest players ever seen on the Victoria Courts, his forte being recovery
from apparently hopeless positions.-
He must have learned his tennis in
a good school, and at the present
time can be classed amongst the best
players in the Province.
The tournament, which was well attended by the general public, is a
splendid indication of what may be
expected in the future. With an addition of forty members to the Club
this year and a large number of
young players coming to the front,
the prospects are most hopeful, and
there will be a general concensus of
opinion that the time has come for
acquiring permanent grounds commensurate to the requirements of a
club which now numbers nearly two
hundred.
It would not be fair to close this
account without recognition of the
admirable manner in which Mrs.
Genge and the Ladies' Committee
catered for the members and their
friends. The furnishing of refreshments for sixty or eighty people
every afternoon involved no little
preparation and hard work, which was
cheerfully undertaken by the Ladies'
Committee.

"Those responsible for the management of last week's handicap tennis
tournament are entitled to unstinted
praise. The games were brought off
systematically. There wasn't a hitch
from the opening day, every class being worked off to the finals by Saturday and the deciding matches being
brought so close to scheduled time
that all enthusiasts were able to witness those they were anxious to see
by keeping themselves posted. Thc
players are all right; so are the officials; but thc courts badly need
fixing.—Colonist.
Sporting
Comment.
The Bellingham ball players went
down before the Victoria team at Oak
Bay last Saturday in a very tedious
game which had "ery few interesting
points, The game was late in starting owing to tlie visitors travelling by
tlic Chippewa. This, however, cannot
be put down to them as they intended
taking passage on the Princess Victoria, but owing lo some sharp practice on thc part of the steamboat
owners in Seattle they were held on
hoard the boat in Seattle until after
the departure of the Victoria. The
game itself was very uninteresting to
watch.    The first innings proved the
undoing for the visitors when they
very kindly threw the ball away and
allowed the home boys to score three
runs. After this neither team had any
the best of it but the locals managed
to hold their lead and run out winners. The local team will not be playing this afternoon, the grounds being
given over to the Caledonia Society
for its annual sports.
As an example how the Inland
Navigation Company is assisting Victoria it was shown this week when at
the request of the local baseball club
the management of the steamboat
company absolutely refused to hold
the Chippewa for a couple of hours to
enable the Seattle league team to get
home, in consequence of this the Victoria fans will be deprived of the
pleasure of witnessing the Seattle
team in action. Manager Dugdale of
the Seattle team was in town on Saturday evening last and arranged with
Manager Willie that these teams
should play at Oak Bay on Monday.
These arrangements are off owing to
the failure of the steamboat company
to come to their assistance.
The next match in which the locals
take part will be played at Oak Bay
one week today, the opponents being
the Websters of Seattle. According
to Manager Dugdale this team is the
fastest outside of the regular league
teams and if the locals manage to
lower their colors it will be a big
feather in their caps.
At last the baseball fans are supplied with the daily scores of the
Northwest league in the local dailies.
I have dwelt on this subject several
times, but never with as much pleasure as this, and I am pleased to see
that the request of many fans has at
last been acceded to.
This afternoon the local lacrosse
players will try conclusions with the
Maple Leafs at the Royal Athletic
Park. From all accounts this should
be a good game and despite their
many setbacks I pick the locals to
win. The team as a whole has never
been in better shape and they will
set a pace that will be hard for their
opponents to maintain. The game will
start at 3 o'clock and I hope there will
be a good turn out.

"Crows are hardy birds," remarked
the boarder. "In cold weather I have
known them to go five days without
food."
"That's nothing," chuckled the comedian boarder, "I've known crows to
go five months without food."
Great Scott!! What kind of crows
were they?"
"Why, scarecrows, of course."

During the warm weather
many people feel weak and
nervous, tired all the time,
no appetite, no ambition. This
is when they need a good
