kVER-SEAS CLUB-Mr. Evelyn
Wrench, the Organizer of the Over-
Seas Club Movement, has paid his
Inised visit to Victoria. That visit was
|very sense a success. He addressed a
■/ded and enthusiastic meeting; he re-
led several misconceptions as to the pur-
and affiliations of the movement, such,
[instance, as that it was an advertise-
for the "Daily Mail." Mr. Wrench
it perfectly clear that the only con-
Ion of the "Daily Mail" with the Over-
Club is that in consequence of his
lous connection with that paper Lord
Ihcliffe generously placed its columns
|s disposal and in the earlier stages of
novement contributed to its expenses.
bven that connection no longer exists,
ft is possible that the curtailment of
pace hitherto devoted to Mr. Wrench's
pe may lead to other arrangements.
French made it clear that the "raison
:" of the movement is set forth in its
and objects, and that he is devoting
blf to the work from purely patriotic
Ires and in order that there may be
| up within the Empire an organization
ged to further its aims. Mr. Wrench
his  own  expenses,  and  to  use  a
|tern phrase, has no axe to grind.   His
was inspiring to a degree; his per-
magnetism   and   charm   delighted
^one who had the pleasure of meeting
his work has been endorsed by some
lie greatest personalities in the Empire,
|ding Earl Grey, who is the official head
he movement, and the Duke of Con-
Iht, who is its patron ancl takes a keen
bnal interest in its development. The
jediate purpose of Mr. Wrench's visit
1 be said to be to consolidate the move-
: throughout Canada. He has been able
lisit about two-thirds of the seventy-
Ibranches which exist in the Dominion,
lthe vivifying influence of his presence
been of inestimable value in stimulating
Ivarious committees and officials and in
|ring a very large accession in member-
Perhaps the most significant feature
lthe Over-Seas Club movement in Ca-
is that of the seventy-five branches
li a membership of 30,000, more than
ly are'located West of the Great Lakes.
Jen one remembers that it is in the
|irie Provinces that Canada has to carry
its great work of assimilating foreign
lonalities and that of the 2,000,000 to be
nd between the Lakes and the Rockies,
bably fewer than one-fourth are of our
race, it will easily be seen how im-
Itant a work remains to be done on the
* laid down by the Over-Seas Club. To
|dreds of thousands of these people the
has no significance; British institu-
|s no meaning, and the British Consti-
jn is an academic phrase. As Mr.
ench very wisely said, our only hope for
I future lies in securing the children, and
jiresent even they are being trained with
or no reference to British history or
lish ideals. No organization should be
le potent in remedying this defect than
] Over-Seas Club, which, if loyal to its
Id, will not cease to labour that it may
lid on the heritage of our fathers unfinished;  maintain it and strengthen it,
carry on, guided by their spirit, the
|k of civilization which they have be-
ithed to us." An organization number-
J 90,000 members in every part of the
litable globe including some of the
"ktest statesmen in the Empire, and
Ingly endorsed by such men as the
Ice of Connaught, Earl Grey, Viscount
thener and the Right Honourable R. L.
Iden, is in every sense of the word a
Ible one and deserving of the support of
Jry man and woman who wishes to see
I best traditions and the noblest ideals of
race preserved.   The Victoria branch
strong one and should be able to make
I influence felt. It is of the happiest
lury   for  its   future   success   that   the
occasion of Mr. Wrench's visit should have
furnished an opportunity for a public exchange of courtesies with the Daughters of
the Empire. The influential delegation
from the local Chapter, consisting of Mrs.
R. S. Day, Mrs. H. C. Hannington and Mrs.
Home, were able to assure the meeting of
the heartiest sympathy and co-operation of
the Daughters of the Empire, and Mrs.
Day delivered one of her eloquent addresses
in support of the Club. Not the least important feature of a delightful evening was
the brilliant address of Miss Wrench, who
accompanied her brother, and who cannot
fail to win the whole-hearted adherence of
the women of the Empire to the movement
initiated and carried to such a successful
issue by her talented brother.
THE BRITISH NAVY—The Prime
Minister of Canada has arrived in
London. He has been received by
representatives of the Government and he
has already figured as the guest of honour
at one of the greatest naval reviews ever
held at Portsmouth. In view of the special
mission which takes him to England, nothing more fitting could have been devised.
The first sitting of the Imperial Council on
Naval Defence has been held, and after the
transaction of formal business an adjournment for a week was made. No doubt at
the next sitting the serious business of the.
Conference will be taken up. As these
events are chronicled day by day and the
record flashed to every part of the Empire
in the most matter of fact manner, it is
difficult to realize what momentous issues
are at stake. There are no first principles
to be settled. That every part of the Empire would respond in the hour of England's need was a foregone conclusion. The
work of the Conference is not to discuss
principles but methods,. Any suggestion
that the representatives -qf the Over-Seas
Dominions will be hatApered in their deliberations by sectional'; factional, or racial
differences is unworthy of the occasion.
The Prime Minister of Canada has made
it perfectly clear that this great Dominion
is prepared to assume a full share of the
burden of Empire, and that among no
portion of His Majesty's subjects in Canada
will there be opposition to such a measure
of Imperial Defence as may be rendered
necessary by Imperial requirements. It is idle
to speculate on details; it is unnecessary to
speculate on the main features of the policy
which Mr. Borden will undoubtedly lay
down on his return. That policy will involve a generous contribution to the Imperial Navy; a contribution of which Canadians will not be ashamed; a contribution
which will harmonize with the aspirations
of this country and the needs of the Motherland, and a contribution whicii will not be
accompanied by conditions inconsistent with
the loyalty and dignity of a free people,
THINKING IMPERIALLY — How
many people in Canada read "The
Round Table" ? How many in Victoria have ever seen a copy ? Probably, not
twenty, and yet "The Round Table" has
been pronounced by a good judge as the
finest publication in the Empire, and second
only, in its literary quality, to Blackwood's
Magazine. It is the production of a group
of brilliant young Imperialiasts, who are
banded together for the purpose of expounding Imperial questions and finding a
way for the solution of Imperial problems.
They are all scholars and thinkers and one
of them at least, bids fair to become a philosopher. Those who had the privilege of
hearing Mr. Kerr's address at the Canadian
Club on Monday last were profoundly impressed. Here was a gentle, genial, gracious personality which inevitably recalled
memories of Arthur Balfour in his younger
days. There was the same tall, spare,
scholastic figure; the same lofty, intellectual
head; the same far-away, dreamy eyes; the
same angular attitudes, and the same
insouciance and almost nonchalance of manner. The difference lay in the greater directness, definiteness and decisiveness which
characterised Mr. Kerr's ■-.oncliisions. He
has a perfect control of "nervous" English.
Although delivered impromptu, his address
had the verbal perfectness of Stevenson,
without that writer's ornateness and elaboration. A more exquisite treat than that
furnished by Mr. Kerr's address the lover
of classical, limpid English could hardly
realize. And yet this limpid English was
charged with weighty ideas, with pregnant
thoughts ancl with profound truths. Indeed, profoundity was the keynote of the
address. Mr. Kerr marshalled his facts as
only a master of history, of philosophy and
of economics could. He showed that in the
last issue nations fight, not for conquest or
indemnities, but for ideals, and he showed
conclusively that British and German ideals
are antagonistic to the point of irreconcilability. The moral, although it was not
expressed, was inevitable. It was a logical
appeal to the Over-Seas Dominions to learn
the lessons of history and to realize their
responsibilities in the great crisis which confronts the British Empire. Mr. Kerr demonstrated beyond a doubt that the crisis
exists, and he showed clearly that German
aggression cannot be reconciled with the
maintenance of British ideals. The German
appeal is to force, and as long as that attitude is maintained Britain has no alternative but the one so eloquently and forcibly
voiced by the First Lord of the Admiralty.
No greater service could be rendered to the
Empire than that Mr. Kerr's address should
be printed ancl circulated wherever the
, Uniun Jack flies.
JEHUS ON WHEELS—The Week
respectfully directs the attention of
the Provincial and Municipal Police
authorities and the Attorney-General as the
Head of the Department under which the
former operate, to the extremely dangerous
condition of affairs still prevailing on our
country roads, and more particularly on the
Malahat Drive. It has long been predicted
that some serious disaster would occur, and
it is only by the oversight of that same
Providence which is supposed to protect
"drunks" that the lunatic from Seattle who
tied his passengers in the car and made
the journey from Victoria to Nanaimo in
two hours and a half, failed to hurl several
people into eternity. The Week knows of
three motor-cars which were ditched by the
drivers in order to avoid a collision. The
action of the police in this matter was deplorable. They were notified long before
the miscreant returned to the city what was
being done, yet they allowed him to reach
the Seattle boat and get away with his
machine in the simplest manner possible.
Unfortunately, he cannot be brought here
under the extradition laws, but the young
men who accompanied him are known to
the police and they are certainly guilty of
"aiding and abetting" a criminal offence.
It is not likely that they will be brought
to the bar of justice, but public opinion
will be flouted through neglect to make
them responsible for an offence to which
they contributed. In the opinion of The
Week the only thing to do in order to protect the public is to put an expert rider
with a motor cycle to patrol Malahat Drive
for the balance of the season, and furthermore, it is about time that new regulations
were made governing the size of the figures
which denote the number of the license on
automobiles. At present they are far too
small; they should be at least three or four
times as large ancl should be displayed in
front as well as behind the cars. At present the small figures on the lamps are undecipherable when a car is moving rapidly,
and those behind are often obscured by a
cloud of dust.   ■
A CIVIC CENTRE—The ratepayers
have, by a somewhat narrow margin, turned down the proposal to
spend approximately half a million dollars
in building a new set of civic offices and a
City Hall at the upper end of Pandora
Street Gore. The Week does not believe
that this is so much a condemnation of the
proposed site as an evidence of disinclination to spend any money at present for
this purpose. It will be a matter of great
surprise if a By-law proposing to demolish
the present City Hall and erect a new one
on the same site with additions reaching
back to Broad Street should carry. Such a
scheme would cost the ratepayers at least
half a million dollars more than the scheme
which has just been rejected. It would
cost a round million dollars to purchase the
additional land and erect a suitable building on the whole area. In the present state
of its finances the City would be well advised not'to incur such an expenditure. It
would be equally well advised not to embark on any gigantic scheme for a "civic
centre" on some other site, involving the
expropriation of a large area of expensive
property. A new City Hall is needed; the
present accommodation is inadequate; the
work of the City is carried on under conditions which are extremely inconvenient, ancl
which are barely sanitary. In view of the
expansion of Victoria and the era of progress on which it has entered, new quarters
will be a "sine qua non" in the very near
future. The upper part of Pandora Gore
is large enough for all purposes ancl in five
years' time will be nearer the centre of the
city than the present site. The land belongs to the ratepayers ancl there is no
reason why it should not be utilized. Here
The Week leaves the matter for the present, convinced, however, that the more the
Pandora Gore proposition is considered, the
more it will be approved of by those who
have no axe to grind and no interests to
serve, but are simply bent on arriving at a
decision which will be best for the City.
GOOD MAPS—Everyone who has
travelled in British Columbia has
had a kick against the sheet maps
which are in use. The relative position of
mountains, valleys and rivers varies so
much from that denoted by most of the
maps in use that it is no uncommon thing
for a prospector or a sportsman to find
himself several miles out <n his reckoning.
It may seem strange, but even so near-by
a district as the Saanich Peninsula has suffered from the same disadvantage, though
not, perhaps, to the same extent. However, it is now possible to obtain accurate,
detailed maps in the form of blue prints,
covering practically the whole of the
Saanich Peninsula, and similar maps are
about to be prepared of the South-western
portion of Vancouver Island, stretching
from Esquimalt to Sooke and Northwards
to Sooke Lake. These maps are the work
of Mr. S. C. Weston, who is an expert and
who is to be complimented on having executed not only accurate maps, but admirable draughtsmanship. The Week mentions this because it has frequently received
enquiries for information along these lines,
and will be glad if in future all such enquiries are made of Mr. Weston direct.
THE SOOKE CONTRACT-The
three months during which the Westholme Lumber Company have had
an opportunity to "make good" has practically expired. Their total achievement
reaches thc insignificant sum of about
$85,000, or eight per cent., of their total
contract. At this rate it would take just
seven years to complete the work. Much
could be said of the ineptitude and incapacity of these contractors, but it would be a
waste of time; it is quite clear that (hey
have no sense of responsibility, and the fact
(Continued on Page 12) THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1912
I have read in numerous magazine
articles that one of the first things
which a new policeman has to learn
is that promotion comes not by frequency of arrest but by quiet efficiency which makes arrests rarely necessary. In the same way the successful
school-master is not the man who
whips the largest number of boys, but
the man whose influence obtains the
required discipline without the use of
the rod. The best captain leads, not
drives, his men, and even in our gaols
we find that the same tendency is at
work. Reform and education are the
order of the day. With such arguments and examples at my back I
should like to discuss the dog-catcher
and his ways, and see whether it
would not be possible for him to do
his duty perhaps more efficaciously if
lie were to work on similar lines. A
little more consideration on his part
might serve to educate the owners of
dogs to exercise greater care and
forethought in the matter of obtaining licenses, even if it could not have
the effect of training the dogs to beg
for their tags when due.
An instance which came before my
notice last week will best illustrate
my meaning. A man who lives in the
neighbourhood of Oak Bay is the
owner of a dog, well stricken in
years, of harmless characteristics but
with an inordinate affection for the
sun. The owner leaves his home
early each morning and returns at
night; during his absence the dog
remains under the guardianship of his
wife, who, being busy with household
affairs, allows the animal to play in
the sunshine. Last week the dog-
catcher spied the dog lying in an open
space adjacent to its home, and, finding that it did not possess the necessary tag, took it as a passenger to
the Hotel des Chiens, which has been
moved, as I understand, to the waterfront at the foot of Herald street.
When the man of the house returned
that night he found his wife in a
state of consternation at the loss of
the dog, and it was not till the ubiquitous small boy of the district had
informed him of the visit of the dog-
catcher that he could formulate a
guess as to the truant's whereabouts.
A visit to the pound confirmed his
suspicions, and on payment of the license fee, a fine and the hotel charges
the  dog was  returned  to  his  home.
* *   *
Now one would have thought that
a great deal of trouble and anxiety
might have been obviated if the dog-
catcher, instead of pouncing on his
prey, had used a little common-sense
and looked round to see whether
there was not a house close to the
open space which might presumably
provide an owner for the dog. I understand that in this particular instance the connection between the
dog and the nearest house was obvious. A knock at the door and a
civil query as to thc ownership of the
dog would, in nine cases out of ten,
result in the immediate payment of
the fee and an apology for being remiss. There is, however, a cogent
reason for the disuse of the common-
sense policy. The dog-catcher receives, in addition to his fixed salary,
a premium of so much per head for
.he dogs arrested, and this is the
"nigger in the wood-pile" which prevents   him   from   saving   dog-owners
trouble and anxiety.
* *   *
Under these circumstances I am
free to confess that I should act in
texactly the same way as the dog-
catcher does. I should regard every
clog as so much prospective bread-
and-butter and I should run him off
in my express as fast as I could before the owner had a chance to expostulate. But though this circumstance provides an excellent excuse
for the dog-catcher, placing him on
a higher (or lower) plane than the
policeman  or  school-master,  captain
or gaoler, it does not provide much
excuse for the City Council which
authorizes the use of barbarous principles. If their officer were paid a
decent salary he would not have to
obey the letter as well as the spirit of
the law with such commendable exactitude, but would be able to give
the virtues of discretion and humanity full play. To my mind there is a
wide difference between a "tagless"
dog running wild on the streets and
the same dog sleeping peacefully in
the sun, almost within the shadow of
his own kennel. In promulgating
such a view I take it, of course, that
it is not the desire of the Council to
exterminate the breed of "dog"; that
there is no. crusade against the
canine clan, and that there is still,
even in the twentieth century, some
realization of the truth of the adage
which says that the dog is man's best
friend. *   *   *
There is one more feature in connection with this dog question on
which I should like to touch before
closing, and that is with reference to
the great inconvenience caused to the
working-man owner of an impounded
dog, by the hours at which the pound
is open. The pound, I am told, is
open from 8.30 a.m. for one hour, and
again for two hours from 2 p.m. Now
what chance do these hours give the
working-man who starts work at 8
o'clock in the morning, has an hour
off for dinner at mid-day and works
again from 1 o'clock till 5? It is
absolutely impossible for him to go
to the relief of his dog without taking a certain amount of time off. And
all the time that the dog is in the
pound the owner has to pay the hotel
charges, which, small as they are, contribute an added annoyance. I think
that these few observations with respect to the dogs are all in order,
and I trust that they will appeal to
some dog-loving member of the City
Council. *   *   *
From dogs to children is but a
short step. Most people class them
together either as unmitigated nuisances or as life's highest blessings.
It is merely a question of temperament and environment. What I have
to say this week is in connection with
children and improvised switchbacks. I suppose that all of my
readers have at one time or another
enjoyed the fascination of a switchback ride. Personally, I think that
there are few pleasures to beat it.
But I do think that an effort should
be made to discourage such ambitious pleasures being indulged in on
the streets by our juvenile population. The temptations are great, I
know. There are many streets which
have just been paved, and a fair percentage of these are on an incline.
What more natural than that the children of the neighbourhood should
construct for themselves vehicles
made of old packing-cases and
equipped with wheels picked out from
the scrap heap, and gaily coast down
these miniature hills? There again,
I would do it myself—if I was sure
that I shouldn't be seen. But the fact
remains that such a practice fails to
find any popularity amongst the
adults. Possibly it is dangerous to
well-being of the children, but we
will let that pass. Besides being dangerous it is distinctly a noisy form
of amusement and the hard-worked
pater-familias and the even harder-
worked help-meet prefer to sit out
on their porches during the hot summer evenings without having the air
made hideous with the rushing of iron
wheels on cemented side-walks and
asphalted roads. Mild expostulation
on the part of a grown-up is for the
most part useless. The infant mind,
as I have remarked before, has a positive genius for insulting, not to say
blasphemous, repartee, and dignity is
ill-preserved when wrangling with a
stranger child, what time the parent
is scowling ominously over his adjoining fence.    But  it  is  wonderful
what weight the man in blue has on
a child's mind. A gentle hint from
him is enough to make an impression that a dozen threats or arguments from a layman fail to leave.
I would therefore suggest that policemen would be instructed to warn such
young offenders when they meet them
in mid-career during the progress of
their perambulations, that coasting on
the public streets is contrary to the
law. I am not quite sure whether or
not it is, but it ought to be at any
rate, and it is quite certain that the
child will believe the "bobby."
* * *
A gentleman who has been prominent in public life in Victoria for
many years stopped me on the street
this week and commended me for
suggesting that seats should be
placed in convenient locations for the
use of the citizens. He told me that
at one time he had offered to present
the City with wooden benches, but
that his offer was turned down on
the ground that the small boys of the
place would cut their names thereon.
A similar offer on his part to erect an
enclosed resting-place after the style
of those seen in English watering-
places was given the same treatment
on the recommendation of the then
Moral Reform Party, or what corresponded to it, as this occurred some
years ago. In the meantime, Victoria
remains the only seaside place of
which I know, which proclaims itself
to the world, first and foremost as a
holiday resort, where, outside the
public parks, there is no seat for the
weary  and  no  resting-place  for  the
Odri
P. S.—A glance at the following
item taken from The Colonist of
July ist, 1862, goes far to show that
we are not as progressive in Victoria
as we think we are. Apparently
"There were 'Spencers' in the earth
in those days," but they were dealt
with properly:
"A Happy Result—One good effect
of the city ordinances and appointment of an inspector is to be observed in the fact of the sidewalks
being no longer encumbered with
stoves, boxes and other articles, dangerous to the shins."

interested to the full by both

of people waiting patiently on

The Majestic Theatre
|he Fortunes of a Composer" is
jf the most pathetic dramas ever
in    moving-picture    language.
Itifully   staged   and   with    every
Ition to detail it may perhaps be
said that the Majestic management
never produced a better film on their
screen. Certain it is that a good
many people who saw this picture on
Monday or Tuesday were glad to
make a furtive, dab at their eyes at
its conclusion. On the other hand,
there was a splendid piece of comedy
to be seen on the same evenings, viz.,
"A Complicated Campaign," whicii
portrayed the good old fight between
men and suffragettes going in during
the stress of a political campaign for
civic officials. It need hardly be said
that though the women were defeated
on the main point, they were successful in all the essentials which
make for victory.
Princess Theatre
"Black Flag" gave eminent satisfaction all this week, and played to
crowded houses. The strong comedy
work of Lazarus, played by Mr. Dave
Williams, delighted the audience, and-
the scenery and effects were especially realistic. "St. Elmo" will be given
next week. This play is almost too
well known to need much comment.
Thousands have read the book, and
wherever it has been played it has
drawn very large houses. In Vancouver, where it was played some
months ago, it was a splendid success. The Williams Co. are sure to
produce it in first class shape. Mr.
Linsdale is cast for St. Elmo ancl
Miss Mildred Page for the leading
feminine role. It is promised that
the church scene in the last act will
be true to life.
The Allen Players
"Nell Gwynn," a very extensive and
very expensive production too, is being staged all next week by the Allen Players at the Victoria Theatre
with Miss Verna Felton in the title
role. It has been found necessary
by the management to run the play
a full week with a Saturday matinee
because of the expense of putting on
the production. It is the biggest undertaking the Allen Players have essayed during their season and is being run as a result of the splendid
support won by the company here.
King Charles will be played by H.
Irving Kennedy; Miss Marie Thompson will be Lady Olivia Vernon;
Miss Gladys Hudars, Lady Castle-
maine, and the remarkable part of
Lord Jeffries is to be played by Mr.
G. D. Zucco.
There is special interest being
maintained in "Nell Gwynn" in Victoria because of the appearance for
the first time in a professional role of
the well known elocutionist, Miss
Constance Bromley who has joined
the Allen Players. Miss Bromley's
experience, however, does not begin
here, for she has covered a wide field
in London and achieved a considerable reputation. She will appear as
the Duchess of Portsmouth.
Rollins will be played by Mr. Con-
ners; Lord Lovelace will be Charles
Stokes, and Sir Roger Fairfax is to
be impersonated by Mr. Eagan. New
scenery has been prepared and a
faithful replica of the King's Theatre,
the church and the old inn will be
seen when the curtain rises Monday
night.

emmtscences
Reprinted from The Week
of 'December 25th,
1909
I often think of the opening chapters of Barrie's beautiful story, "The
Little Minister." I remember reading the story when it first came out,
and every chapter appealed to me, but
the opening chapter gripped, and will
always remain as a precious memory.
It recalls reminiscences of sundered
friendships, and of days which live
only in the memory, for their fruition
has passed and there is no tangible
evidence that they ever wcre.
The most precious thing in life is
a true friend, and the noblest sentiment genuine friendship. It is not
tinged by the red rose of passion, ancl
hardly by the delicate pink of emotion, but it knits and grows through
community of interest, oneness of
purpose and profound sympathy.
It is the crudest irony of fate
which decrees that nearly all friendships are short-lived, the few exceptions only tending to establish the
rule. Some, of them die a violent
death, after a paroxysm of anger or
reproach, others cool off under the
spell of growing indifference, whilst
some are terminated deliberately and
of set purpose, as a matter of convenience or policy.
A severed friendship is well illustrated by the following lines from
Thomas Hardy's "Return of the Native":
"When the sun has been shining
very brightly and then suddenly it is
cut off by an exceedingly dark cloud."
I sometimes think that a precious
friendship is always too precious to
last. Life would be too full of supreme happiness if the purest friendships could be continuous, and so it
comes about that, at the moment of
reminiscence, most men and women
look back on a friendship which covered a brief period, but was very
sweet while it lasted. So sweet that
though it be terminated its fragrance
will never pass away, and of it one
may truly say:
"Deep in our hearts
It dwells for evermore."
It is rarely possible to revive sundered friendships. Something has
been lost in the process of separation
which can never bc recovered, which
makes another "rapprochement" impossible.
I remember reading in a very entertaining novel a paragraph whicii I
could not forget. A man and a woman had been excellent friends for
several years. Circumstances seemed
to point to the necessity for a severance. They faced the ordeal bravely
and philosophically, as becomes good
friends who understood each other;
but who can plumb the pathos of his
remark: "I suppose that if we should
ever meet again in the years to come,
I should raise my hat and you would
bow." And therein lies the tragedy of
B severed  friendship.
lt seems impossible that intimacy
should decline to conventionality, and
yet, that is fate. Perhaps the sanest
and wisest reflection is to be found
in that hackneyed poem "Maud Muller," and in its closing lines:
"Ah, well tor us all sonic fond hope lies,
Deeply buried frnm human eyes."
'Tis better to have won and lost,
Than never to have won at all.
Overseas Club~i4» Imperial Organization
Visit of the Founder, Mr. Evelyn Wrench
to Victoria
The K. of P. Hall was crowded to
its utmost capacity on Wednesday
evening last to welcome Mr. Evelyn
Wrench, the Founder and Organizer
of the Over-Seas Club Movement.
Mr. W. Blakemore, the President of
the Victoria branch, occupied the
Chair, and was supported on the platform by Mr. Wrench, Miss Wrench,
Mr. Clive Phillips Wolley, President
of the Navy League, and Mr. E. Bullock-Webster, President of the Prince
Rupert branch of the Over-Seas Club.
The Honorary President, Sir Richard
McBride, K.C.M.G., was unfortunately prevented from being present, but
sent the following letter in explanation of his unavoidable absence.
"Victoria, July 10, 1912.
"Wm. Blakemore, Esq.,
President The Over-Seas Club,
Victoria, B. C.
"Dear   Mr.   Blakemore,—
"I had fully intended being present
at the meeting of the Over-Seas Club
this evening to assist in welcoming
Mr. Wrench, as 1 am heartily in accord with the patriotic aims of the
institution which has attained such
wide influence in Canada and other
parts of the Empire.
"I am, however, detained by reason
of my having to meet Sir Donald
Mann on some very important business, and regret exceedingly that I
may not be able to be with you.
However, if at all possible, I shall endeavour to attend the meeting later
in the evening.
"With best wishes for a most successful  gathering,
"Yours sincerely,
"RICHARD McBRIDE."
In welcoming the visitor, in whose
honour the meeting was being held,
Mr. Blakemore expressed his great
pleasure that such a la-ge and enthusiastic meeting had assembled.
They had known Mr. Wrench for a
long time, but at a distance; they
had formed a high opinion of his
ability and now they were to have the
pleasure of forming a closer acquaintance and he was sure they would realize what he himself had discovered in
the course of the day, that Mr.
Wrench was a man of mark, highly
gifted in the powers of initiation and
organization and qualified in every
sense to carry this world-wide Im
perial movement to a successful issue.
The Over-Seas Club owed its ori
gin to that great Empire Builder,
Cecil Rhodes, who had implanted the
germ idea in the minds of men like
Mr. Wrench and had stimulated them
to definite action. The immediate inception of the Club was directly due
to the intervention of Earl Grey, than
whom Canada had never had a better
friend, or one who more fully realized
her greatness, her possibilities and her
responsibilities. That Mr. Wrench
had grasped the germ idea of an Imperial movement which should crystallize British ideas, appeal to British sentiment and consolidate British
principles was evidenced bv the fact
that in less than two years, the organization he had formed numbered
91,000 members in 350 branches scattered throughout the Empire. There
was no section of British Over-Seas
territory which had not responded to
the call. Canada had not been behind
in the matter, for the Dominion today
boasted of 75 branches with 30,000
members, and perhaps the most significant feature of this, especially in
view of the pressing problems of the
moment was that 68 of these 75
branches were West of the Great
Lakes, and no fewer than 16 in the
Province of British Columbia.
The purpose of Mr. Wrench's visit
was to get in touch with the different
branches, to make the personal acquaintance of the officers and members, to consult with them as to the
future work of the Club and to stimulate public interest in the movement.
He had been eminently successful
through the whole of his tour, and
the meeting in Victoria was not inferior to any which had greeted him.
The President spoke in very high
terms of thc invaluable assistance rendered to Mr. Wrench by his sistei
who accompanied him. She was indeed in every sense of thc word a
help-meet. Not only did she share
with him the labours of detailed organization, hut was herself an accomplished platform speaker.
In tendering Mr. and Miss Wrench
the hearty welcome of the Victoni
Over-Seas Club the President joined
with it the welcome of the Daughters
of the Empire, an organization which
had done splendid work in Victoria
and which was represented that night
by Mrs. R. S. Day, Mrs. H. C. Hannington and Mrs. Home. The President expressed the hope that in future these two societies, having a common object, might be able to work
together in many ways. He also informed the audience that as the outcome of a consultation with Mr.
Wrench it had been determined to
take immediate steps towards the federation of the British Columbia
branches of the Over-Seas Club.
Miss Wrench, on being introduced
to thc audience, received an ovation,
and during the    fifteen    minutes or
thereabouts, in which she spoke of
woman's work in connection with the
Over-Seas Club movement, she held
her audience enthralled. Rarely has
Victoria had the pleasure of listening
to a more accomplished and intellectual speaker.
Miss Wrench expressed her appreciation of being allowed to talk to her
brother's audiences on patriotism
viewed from a woman's standpoint.
It was given to few to die for their
country; the majority could only show
their patriotism by living for it. And
in the women's hands lay a great influence, an influence that could animate men to higher ideals. Men were
what women made them, and good as
was the work done by the sexes separately, she believed it was nothing
to what they could accomplish when
working together. To teach their
children to think imperially was to
perform the greatest service to their
country and empire that was possible.
Miss Wrench dwelt at length on the
extremely adverse conditions which
existed, in the Prairie Provinces,
where so many immigrants of different nationalities were finding a home,
but were not abandoning any of the
prejudices which they brought with
them, or acquiring any respect for the
MR. EVELYN WRENCH, FOUNDER AND
ORGANIZER OK THE OVER-SEAS
CLUB MOVEMENT
traditions and constitution of the Empire in which they were now living.
She argued that it was hopeless to
expect that the parents would change
and the only chance for Canada to
make real Canadians of these incomers was to influence the children.
This was essentially woman's work.
She appealed to the women of Victoria to join the Over-Seas Club and
to co-operate in the really necessary
task which it had undertaken. The
special object of the Club whicii appealed most to women was well set
forth in the third paragraph of its
creed: "To draw together in bond of
comradeship the peoples now living
under the folds of the British Flag."
Mrs. R. S. Day, as representing the
Daughters of the Empire, was asked
by the President to speak a few words.
This she did in her usual graceful
and effective manner, touching briefly
on the history of the local Chapter of
which Mrs. Henry Croft was Regent,
and assuring the Over-Seas Club that
they were at one in sentiment and
would be only too glad to co-operate
in any movement for promoting the
interests of the Empire. The audience
was greatly impressed hy Mrs. Day's
remarks and indeed it is no flattery to
say that among the noble women
who have distinguished themselves by
their services in connection with the
various women's organizations of the
Dominion, there is not one who
stands higher in the public esteem
than Mrs. Day, and certainly not one
who is even her compeer as a public
speaker.
Mr. Clive Phillips Wolley was the
next speaker, and received the hearty
reception that is always accorded to
one who has been, not inaptly described as British Columbia's Warrior
Poet. Mr. Wolley said that he supposed he had been invited to speak
as President of the Navy League,
since the fourth specific object of
the Over-Seas Club was "To insist
on the vital necessity to thc Empire
of British supremacy on the sea."
This was always a great question, but
today it was something more; it was
momentous. Things wcre moving
rapidly; history was being made
every day; the concentration of the
British Navy in home waters was
throwing a greater responsibility on
the Over-Seas Dominions. That they
must come to the aid of the Mother
Country was no longer a matter of'
debate; the only thing to settle was
the manner of support.
He  had  every confidence  that the
visit of Mr. Borden to England and a
conference which he proposed to hold
with the Admiralty would result in a
definite scheme, and he was sure that
it would be a scheme of which Canadians, irrespective of party, would approve. But it took something more
than ships and guns to make a navy;
the strength of the British Navy and
the British Army depended on the
sailors who manned the ships and the
men who stood behind the guns, and
the great work of training the present generation in the best principles
and ideals of our race in order that
they would face the battles of the future not only with material equipment but with high courage and firm
principle was the greatest and
most important work demanded of
patriotism.
This was the legitimate work of the
Over-Seas Club; to help one another,
to urge on every able-bodied man the
necessity of being able to bear arms,
and, beyond this, to indoctrinate its
members with the beautiful creed
which had been adopted by the
Founder of the Club.
Introduced by the President, Mr.
Evelyn Wrench said that he had been
told that in Victoria organizers found
it hard to make people enthuse over
anything, and that an appeal to their
pockets was seldom responded to.
That, he was glad to say, had not
been his experience. On the other
hand, when the disastrous sinking of
the Titanic caused loss and bereave
ment in many families, the Victoria
branch had subscribed more to the
relief fund than any other of the
whole 350 branches of the Over-Seas
Club.    (Applause).
Speaking with great emphasis Mr,
Wrench confuted the idea that the
Overseas Club was an organization
run in the interest of the London
Daily Mail. Such an idea was unworthy of any decent mail's consideration, and was absolutely and entirely
without foundation. Ou the other
hand the club owed a great debt of
gratitude to the Daily Mail for the
valuable space that had been allotted
to the Club in their Over-Seas edition.
Mr. Wrench then went on to tell of
the inception of the Club and stated
that the first germ of the idea emanated from the fertile brain of the
greatest of all Empire builders, Cecil
Rhodes. The speaker went bn to tell
how he had been staying with Lord
Grey, who is one of Rhodes' trustees,
in the year 1906. Among the papers
left by the great imperialist he saw
the most interesting document his
eyes had ever lighted upon. It had
been written by Cecil Rhodes when a
young man, and began by asking the
question:
"What is the chief aim and object in
life in order to become a happy man?"
It went on to state how some men
sought it in marriage, some in the
acquiring of power and pelf, but with
him he had already made up his mind
that his sole aim in life would be the
keeping together of the British
peoples.
This document had remained in Mr.
Wrench's desk in London until two
years ago, when he had shown it to
Lord Northcliffe, the proprietor of the
Daily Mail. They had taken the matter up, and out of the idea of the
great imperialist they had formed the
Over-Seas Club.
One of the greatest friends of the
Overseas Club was Lord Grey, who
had given the movement his heartiest
support. He always alluded to Lord
Grey as the Club's "fairy godfather,"
for he had backed the idea when it
was but a germ. "The fundamental
idea of the Over-Seas Club is to join
it for what we give to it, and not for
what we can get from it."
He named the Club as "the most
successful patriotic society in Great
Britain, being non-party, non-sectarian, without trammel or prejudice.
(Loud applause and a voice: "Give
us your creed.")
Whereupon Mr. Wrench immediately replied:
"Believing that the British Empire,
the greatest that the world has ever
seen, has been ancl must be built on
a basis of justice, freedom, order and
good government, we pledge ourselves
to hand on that heritage of our
fathers undiminished; to maintain it
ancl to strengthen it; to carry on,
guided by their spirit, the work of
civilization which they have bequeathed to us."
"The great strength of our movement," went on the speaker, "lies in
its democracy. It is not a society for
promoting social aggrandisement. So
soon as thc 0. C. becomes a society
in which self-seekers use it for their
own ends, so soon will it begin to
fail, to decay, ancl fall away."
Continuing, he told of the men of
all trades who were enrolled on the
great files in the London oflice—sheep
farmers in Australia, lumberjacks in
America, diamond-diggers in Africa;
every possible field of labour was represented in it. It included many
French Canadians, naturalized Americans and even Hindus.
"At this present stage," said Mr.
Wrench, with great earnestness, "I
must say that I am opposed to admitting Orientals into Canada." (A
voice: "No, no.")
"But," went on Mr. Wrench, "when
you have admitted them, when you
have allowed them to step on to your
shores, you must allow their wives to
come too."   (Loud and continue<|
plause.)
Mr. Wrench then went on to tl
the present status of the Over!
Club. There were at the present!
over 91,000 members in 350 brajf
which were scattered all ove!
world, stretching from Dawson}
in the North to Invercargill if
South. A great feature of thej
was the correspondence sel
wherein members in different pa|
the Empire exchanged views
manner of things. Sometimes!
developed into closer unions.
"It was a solitary male memt]
Vancouver," said Mr. Wrench,
got into correspondence with a
governess  in  Southern Italy,
confided in each other on the nl
hobby of stamp-collecting.   Thif
tinued for three months, and
end of that time the young Vd
verite invited the lady to cornl
share   his   home.     She   showel
good sense by immediately resi
her post and setting out for thef
"When she got to Vancouver!
ever, the groom-elect had been f
north to the Yukon, but I am
say for the honour of the clul]
he returned.
"Sometime ago," continued
Wrench, "1 received word tm
offspring had arrived and I was|
to stand as godfather."
Mr. Wrench had some Intel
things to say about the foreia
ment in the Dominion, and t|
upon the false idea that the
immigrant was always a devot<|
ject of the British crown,
ferred to a visit to a town in
chewan where a little girl wl
been for six years in a C{
school did not know the Unic|
when she saw it, and also tc
man in the same place who hac!
grated 17 years before fromf
Dakota. He, too, was oblivious
significance of the Empire's fla(T
The speaker dwelt upon thej
sity of getting hold of the clf
and the vital need of action il
respect. The moving picture!
was the next theme discussed,
speaker pointed out the worll
the Club had done in the prairf
wards stopping the indiscrif
Americanization of the picture
He mentioned the case of a to
the prairies where every item
programme dealt with the State
pie and the States scenery;
every act of heroism was done]
American. The speaker hinted I
harmfulness of allowing sucq
ceedings to continue ancl urged
Victorians the necessity of o\j
ing the bioscope films of she
this city.
Speaking of the navy, Mr.
said that in Canada it should!
question above party; it was tol
a thing to be dragged clown in|
arena of party politics.
Some   time   ago   he   had   ha|
privilege of talking with  Hon.
ston Churchill, the first lord
Admiralty.
"There is no one more alivd
continued, "to the dangers of thi
sent international situation thai
first lord himself, ancl it if
Churchill's belief that the only!
tion is to build two battleshil
everyone laid in the shipyards]
certain country across the Ge
ocean."   (Applause.)
He dwelt for a few minutes o|
great organization in Germany
the Navy League, in which well|
a million people were enrolled;!
expatiated on the teed of a si|
society in the British Empire.
"At the present    time,"    saicj
speaker, "there is within 400 mil]
the heart of the Empire a fleet
German Dreadnoughts."
The  continental  people  were I
fond of harping on the idea thai
fore long the  British sway mtijf
the way of all the great empires <
past—Carthage, Spain, Rome, GH
and so on.   But our present Eil
was reared on a different foundf
and  he had no hesitation  in  sj
that though the last thousand
had geen glorious, the next thoil
would be much more glorious sti|
He pleaded for the secession
from the sway of the almighty dl
which he had learned was paid fal
much heed to, in Canada. It |
one of the aims of the Overl
Club to teach men a higher staif
of life than the mere hoarding oj
grasping for gain. He wanted t|
a higher standard in the politica
everywhere.
"I believe," he continued pas
ately, "that no Over-Seas Club
ber will ever support a politicia!
any man whose record is not
lutely clean."
In conclusion Mr. Wrench s|
that as an example of how an
lishman's integrity was respectedl
people of parts of South Ami
when they wanted to conclude a(
gain always asked for a "palabrl
Inglesc"—the word of an English!
He finished his speech with the ll
tiful line from Wordsworth, begin!
"The land we from our fathers.'!
Mr. Wrench's address was cleliy
in a very forcible and impressive
ner;  he carried his audience withl
and  his  remarks  frequently  elil
hearty applause.    After the clos|
the meeting Mr. Wrench met
of   the   members   individually
answered  numerous  enquiries  a|
the work of the Club. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1912

PANAMA AND SUEZ CANALS
al.
During the discussion respecting the proposed tolls for use of the
ama Canal, the competition of the Suez Canal has been kept well in
The Panama Canal bill, recently introduced in the United States
ise, allows the President to fix the tolls, but prohibits him from
ing them higher than 1.25 per net registered ton. This rate was
ted because it was 6 or 7 cents lower than the charge in the Suez
The expectation is that the President will fix the rates at $1
net registered ton, American measurement. This will be expected
ive the canal a marked advantage over the Suez route, so far as the
of passage is, concerned.
In view of these facts, the annual report of the Suez Canal Corn-
presented at a meeting held in Paris this month, is of special
est. The policy of the company has.been to reduce the tolls on
possible occasion. At the time of the last general meeting the
er months of 1911 showed practically to the end of May a
nution of about half a million francs, as compared with the cor-
oiiding period of 1910. This decline was much less than that
lved by the reduction of dues from the beginning of the year, ancl
management then pointed out that economic conditions seemed
urable to the maintenance of great commercial activity. Facts
: shown that this anticipation erred on the side of conservatism,
loss from reduced dues has been much more than made up, ancl
year's receipts show a further increase of 4,000,000 francs. Thus,
ar from showing any sign of slackening, the regular increase in
ic was particularly inarked in 1911, ancl the net tonnage reached
lied record figures.
This favourable result, in conjunction with the fact that the
pts so far this year show an increase, warranted the directors in
losing a further increase of the dividend from 158 francs to 165
cs. From January lst, 1913, a further reduction in the tariff of
ientimes will be made. The strong position of the company's
ve and sinking funds, to which important additions are being made
ie result of the operations of 1911, enables the company to take
step with confidence. For three years successively they have
larly reduced the tariff by 50 centimes, or about 20 per cent, in all.
The annual report of the Suez Canal Company shows that the
I receipts in 1911 amounted to 138,038,225 francs, showing an
ease as compared with 1910 of 4,334,012 francs.   The total expen-

allocated to sinking fund.   This is an increase of 1,287," 94 francs as
compared with 1910, and is mainly accounted for by the increased
dredging.   The balance of receipts over expenditure is 92,986,462
francs, as against 89,940,244 francs iri 1910; and of this 3 per cent.,
or 2,789,594 francs, is set aside for statutory reserve, leaving a balance

VICE-PRESIDENT BURY AND MIXED FARMING
Quality and Freshness
Vice-President Bury, of the Canadian Pacific Railway, was in
Calgary last week returning from a trip.to the Coast.   Mr. Bury
confirms the report that double-tracking has already commenced from
Vancouver eastward and that several parties of engineers are surveying
for the reduced grades and double track through to Calgary which is
to be pushed rapidly ahead.   This, he considered, would be of much
benefit to both cities in view of the increase of trade following the
completion of the Panama Canal.   The Canadian  Pacific Railway
would be found reatly to handle everything that would be offered.   The
company, said Mr. Bury, is very much interested in the question of
mixed farming, and will do everything in its power to encourage the
farmers to engage to a greater extent in this branch of agriculture.   He
believed that more mixed farming was essential to the welfare of the
country and its is astonishing to find so much agricultural produce
being imported.   "On this trip," he said, "I was served with butter
from New Zealand, mutton from Australia, fruit from the United
States, marmalade from England, and potatoes from Virginia.   At
Vancouver I noticed a shipment of twenty-five carloads of condensed
milk from Eastern Canada being loaded on a vessel for export.   All
these articles should be produced in Western Canada."

tons to 3,688 tons.   The total improvement during the past ten years
has amounted to 29 per cent.
These are arguments in favour of tolls on the Panama Canal, no
higher than necessary to pay the cost of operation.    Satisfactory as
were the results of 1911 of the Suez Canal Company, they have already
been exceeded so far as the early months of 1912 are concerned.   In
spite of the further tariff reduction dating from January lst last,
receipts up to May 20th showed an increase over the corresponding
period of 1911 of 1,860,000 francs.    *
There is considerable diversity of traffic on this canal.   Reductions
in one direction are almost invariably compensated for by advances
in others.   Last year, contrary to the usual experience, the improvement has been most marked from north to south, as the result of ship

BRITISH COLUMBIA RAILWAYS
Sir Richard McBride estimates the amount to be spent in railway
construction  in  British  Columbia  during the  next   fpur  years  at
$100,000,000 and expresses the opinion that the expenditure will in all
probability be over that amount.    Mention of the figures brings one to
a realization of what is being clone and what is contemplated by the
different railway companies that are anxious to do business on the
Pacific seaboard.   Activity is not confined to any one road, but to all
of the four which already have lines in British Columbia, namely, the
Canadian Pacific Railway, the Great Northern, The Canadian Northern
and the Grand Trunk Pacific, and also the Pacific Great Eastern, which
is reckoned practically as the Grand Trunk Pacific.   Work has begun
this week on the large pier of the Canadian Pacific Railway which
will cost three-quarters of a million dollars, and excavation is proceeding on the site of the new depot.   The Canadian Pacific Railway
will expend more in British Columbia during the next few years than
for many years past.   The Great Northern will double track its lines,
between Vancouver and New Westminster.

and Dutch Indies, owing to the producing power of those regions
having been  increased by  abundant  crops.   Further, exporters  of
American petroleum were led, owing to larger production in the United
States and to keen competition in European markets, to send great
quantities of this combustible to Asiatic ports.   Traffic from south to

Manchuria, and traffic from China was to a certain extent interfered
with by political events.   On the other hand, exports from India were
particularly large, not only from Calcutta, but from the western ports,
shipments of wheat especially having attained a record total.   Exports
from the  Dutch  Indies  also assumed  large  proportions.   This  is
especially true of sugar, the demand being accentuated by the deficiency
of European crops; while benzine, which had been falling off lately,

The fate of the Endeavour is a
matter of conjecture. She was sold
in France and re-named "La Liberte."
About 1793 she was chased* into Newport (U.S.A.), by a British frigate;
and it is believed that the hulk was
demolished by a great gale in 1815.
The Resolution, and the Adventure,
were the ships which comprised
Cook's squadron on his second circumnavigation, and on his third, and
last voyage, when Nootka was surveyed, and the British Columbia coast
sighted up to and including Alaska,
his ships consisted of the above Resolution, and the Discovery. No islands
are shown on the maps of the period,
the coast between Nootka and Oun-
alaska, is described "Land seen by
the Spaniards."
The above vessels were all built at
Whitby; Cook preferred Whitby
ships because they were strong, of
moderate size, and easily beached on
account of the flatness of their bottoms. George Vancouver served in
the Resolution first as A. B., afterwards as midshipman; his name is
perpetuated in that of the island on
which we live, and his gilded effigy
surmounts the dome of the Parliament Buildings. Cook has a few geographical place names to his memory,
and Cook and Vancouver Streets in
this city are appropriately parallel.

A COMPLAINT
Victoria, Jth July, 1912.
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—The next time you are in the
vicinity of the Parliament Buildings,
take a run upstairs and see the room
in the Agricultural Department set
apart for the specimens of small fruit.
After a careful investigation let me
know what you think of it. Is it in
your opinion in keeping with our reputation as a great fruit growing province? Go there in the capacity of a
new comer, who wishes to get all information on the different varieties
and see for himself what they" look
like. As far as I found it, there were
long rows of jam jars, which a gentleman who was in the room told me
had been there to his knowledge for
20 years. The liquid in which they
have soaked is all discolored and even
if you can read the faded and disgraceful writing on the labels, it is
quite impossible to get any idea of
what is inside. Make an effort, Mr.
Editor, to learn something of the appearance of the very numerous apples
which B. C. boasts about. You will
find nothing. What is the place for?
There is no use in supplying sheets
of written information if it is not
backed up with something to look at.
In all modern places of this nature
apples, pears, peaches, etc., are all exhibited in wax, painted so like the real
fruit, that it is impossible to tell one
from the other.
It appears to me that some one is
starving this portion of our department out. We talk a lot, why not
back it up with something to show
for it.
I think, Mr. Editor, you will agree
with me when you see it, with the
exception of the grain which keeps
well, the whole business wants renewing and modernizing.
Yours truly,
A PEACH.
A FAREWELL LETTER
My dear unknown Correspondents:
Before closing the department with
which I have been especially connected, I wish to express my gratitude for the support it received from
you all and also the pleasure it has
afforded me. Through its agency I
have made the acquaintance of some
two hundred of you, and I have been
able to exercise the privileges of a
friend by telling you all what I
thought of you. My only regret is
that you have been unable to respond
in kind, but perhaps this is just as
well as I might not have courage
enough to remain in Victoria, whence
so many of you hail.   So then, wish
ing you one and all the luck and
prosperity that is your due, I am for
the last time,
Yours sincerely,
TAU.
A CORRECTION
The Week desires to correct two
printer's errors in Captain Walbran's
interesting letter relating to Captain
Cook in last Saturday's issue, 6th
July. The name, Mr. "Shailey,"
where first mentioned, should read
"Smailey," and the date 1479 should
read 1749.
Lost Opportunity
Sir Thomas Lipton tells a humorous story of a Scotc'hman who went
to a race meeting for the first time
in his life. The old man's friends
persuaded him to risk sixpence on a
horse—a forty to one chance.
With much trepidation, the Scotchman handed out the sixpence, and,
strange to relate, the horse won.
When the bookmaker handed out a
sovereign and sixpence to Sandy, the
latter could not believe his own eyes.
"Do you mean to tell me I get all
this for my sixpence?" he asked.
"You do," replied the bookmaker.
"Ma conscience!" exclaimed Sandy.
"Tell me, mon, how long has this
thing been going on?"
Though Sandy had "greenhorn's
luck" and "picked the winner" on his
first venture, he might not do so
again in 99 times out of 100, as those
who "follow the ponies" could tell
him. The man who wants to place
his "saxpences" on a "sure thing"
should investigate the Canadian Government's Annuity System, information in regard to which may be obtained at any post oflice or on application to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa. Your letter is carried free of postage.

Good Roads Association
Interest in the Third Annual Convention of the Pacific Highway Association, which convenes at San
Francisco on August 5, 6 and 7, continually grows and active preparations are being made by delegates
who will motor to this central meeting point for the purpose of devising ways and means for improving
the "Road of Three  Nations."
In commenting on road conditions
and difficulties that will have to be
overcome, Judge J. T. Ronald, President of the Association, recently
gave out the following interview:
"I have been assured by a great
many of my friends throughout
Washington, Oregon and Northern
California that they are doing everything possible to make our trip just
as agreeable and pleasant as' possible,
I have personally asked a great many
Boards of Supervisors and County
Commissioners to render all possible
co-operation in making immediate
slight repairs that will leave a favourable impression of road conditions
with our friends, who go to San Francisco. To all of the officials that I
have not been able to reach, I wish
through the medium of this interview
to express my desire that they cooperate with us as far as possible
and thank those that have already
rendered such efficient aid in making
the Pacific Highway route not only
passable but enjoyable for all kinds of
travel this year. I believe that the
annual gathering this year will equal
that record."
State Highway Commissioner A. B.
Fletcher, of California, has accepted
an invitation to address the convention and will be listened to with a
great deal of interest as he will tell
of how California is spending her
$18,000,000.00 bond issue for road
construction. Some of the preliminary plans for this work have already
been let and the plans are well under
way so that Mr. Fletcher will be able
to talk about actual accomplishments
rather than visionary plans.
Character by Handwriting
W. C. B.—Sensitive, proud, educated and
refined you are inclined to be too reserved
and thereby do not always know your best
friends. Affection is marked, there is a little
vanity and a rather poor sense of justice.
Charity is strong, love of home and affection
for children is pronounced. You are not fond
of travelling, you appreciate scenery but not
sufficiently to induce you to brave the fatigues
of a long journey. I suspect your health
to be rather poor or perhaps you were tired
when you wrote the phrases I am diagnosing.
Temper usually mild; sharp and unreasonable
at times. A good deal of shrewd intuition
and a fair amount of common sense. Jealousy
is not pronounced. Energy good. Moral
sense evident. Some egotism and a little self-
conceit.
ARCTIC—Emphatic, inclined to be blunt
and downright, you would be a good man
of business were it not for a love of ideals,
a trait which underlies your whole character.
Although fluent in conversation you are not
apt at conveying your ideas to others. Distinctly a thinker, you have constructive ability,
at present dormant. You have persistent energy, determination, and a clear idea of your
object. Moral sense high, honour and probity
clearly marked, a fair sense of justice. You
are not unduly optimistic, your broad vision
enables you to view affairs correctly. Tact is
weak and discretion might be stronger. Self-
consciousness is shown and some conceit.
Affectionate, a good friend, and attracted by
the opposite sex. Mathematics and liguistic
ability indicated.

A wedding of interest was celebrated in this city on Wednesday
last, between Mabel Brenda, eldest
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alan S.
Dumbleton, and Clement Hungerford
Pollen, of Cranbrook, B. C. In the
afternoon the bride's parents held a
reception at "Rocklands," Rockland
Avenue, the residence of the bride's
grandmother, where the many friends
of the bride and groom assembled.
The bride looked very charming in a
gown of cream satin panelled with
silver embroidery. She wore a veil
of old point de gaze, the gift of the
bridegroom's mother, whicii was
much admired; her only ornament being pearl ear-rings, the bridegroom's
gift, who also presented her with a
sheaf of Madonna lilies. She was
supported by two bridesmaids, her
sisters, the Misses Sheila and Thelma Dumbleton, the former in a gown
of white crepe de chine, trimmed
with coral, and lace and coral hat to
match, the latter in the same with
blue trimmings. Both carried bouquets of pink sweet peas, and wore
the gifts of the bridegroom which
were a pearl and amethyst pendant
and pearl bangle respectively. Mr.
Francis Marshall acted as best man,
and was recipient of a handsome silver cigarette case, the gift of the
bridegroom. The bride's mother was
becomingly attired in French gray
striped _Eolian, with a beautiful fichu
of Honiton lace with which she wore
a toque of pink roses, and carried a
bouquet of pink rose buds. The happy pair left for England by the 4.30

* *   *
That such a ruse would not have deceived the youngest Boy Scout.
Physical Culture
It is not to make a pun to say that
Physical Culture has become a "cult."
In any event its immense popularity
is due to the fact that it has come
to be regarded as an indispensable
adjunct of juvenile training. Indeed,
it is not confined to juveniles, for
people well advanced in life have become pupils of Sandow, and other
acknowledged leaders of the movement, to the great improvement of
their health, not to say anything of
their bearing and carriage. It has
come to be recognized that tliere is
no substitute for a course of Physical
Culture. Its results are seen in vigorous health, in buoyant elastic step,
in natural easy carriage of the body
and in an impressive bearing which
speaks plainly of the treatment which
has been undergone. Whilst Victoria
has had many competent drill instructors who have done good work
in our schools, it has not hitherto had
the advantage of an expert scientific
teacher of Physical Culture. A new
arrival, Mr. Ernest Gaster, comes
with the highest testimonials and is
fully entitled to be regarded as a
master of the "cult." He is an English gentleman, who hopes to establish classes in Victoria and to demonstrate here, as he has elsewhere,
the advantage of a strictly scientific
course of training such as he is qualified to impart. The Week knows
enough of Mr. Gaster to endorse him
and his work unreservedly.
Croquet Tournament
The Week has pleasure in directing
attention to the open tournament of
the Victoria Croquet Club to be held
on the grounds of the Lawn Tennis
Club, Cadboro Bay Road, during the
week, commencing July 22nd. There
are five events: Open Singles for the
championship of Vancouver Island,
and a cup presented by the Hon. J.
Dunsmuir; Mr. J. S. Bowker is the
present holder. Open Doubles Mixed;
Handicap Singles, Ladies, for a cup
presented by Mrs. J. Dunsmuir; Mrs.
McFarland is the present holder.
Handicap Singles, Men; Handicap
Doubles, Ladies. The entrance fee is
one dollar for each entry. The
Tournament Committee is Messrs. G.
A. Kirk, J. S. Bowker, W. F. Burton,
J. D. Virtue, A. D. B. Scott, with H.
G. Garrett, Secretary. The address of
the latter is P. O. Box 1146, Victoria,

are the most economical you can
buy because the double thickness

Their chief value, however, lies in the protection they afford both passengers and car in checking

(Continued from Page i)
that they have sent the late City
Solicitor to San Francisco to negotiate with Mr. Wynne Meredith,
the Waterworks Engineer, is the
best evidence that they have no
hope of convincing the Council and
the public of their ability to carry
out the contract. The view of The
Week is that the City has been
played with; that the contractors
are unable to finance their contract,
even if they are able to manage it;
that it was an unpardonable mistake for the Council to have receded from their attitude of three
months ago, and that, if they do not
terminate the contract on the 15th
inst., they will incur a serious responsibility.
RAILWAY TERMINALS —
The announcement of Sir
Richard McBride at the
Board of Trade meeting yesterday
afternoon will be received with
general satisfaction'. It practically
amounts to this, that the Songhees
Reserve will be laid out entirely in
accordance with the plans submitted by the Southern Pacific expert, Mr. Holman, and approved by
the Provincial Government. This
involves the erection of a Union
station to be used by the C. P. R.
and the C. N. R., and the allocation of certain areas and waterfrontage to those Companies. The
Week is authorized to state that
the negotiations between the Government and the C. N. R. are completed, and that they have resulted
to the entire satisfaction of the
Government. The negotiations
with the representatives of the C.
P. R. are still under way, and have
been somewhat protracted because
the E. & N. Railway was constructed under a Dominion charter
and the negotiations are therefore
more complicated.   This condition
is further emphasized by the fact
that the water-frontage also is under the control of the Dominion
Government, although that authority has consented to its disposition
for Terminal purposes. Reviewing the whole matter, it may be
taken for granted that a settlement
with the C. N. R. has been practically effected, and that it is hoped
to conclude an arrangement with
the C. P. R. by negotiation at an
early date. If not, it would of
course be open to refer the matter
to the Railway Commission; but
this should not be necessary. In
all these difficult and protracted negotiations the Provincial Government has adhered firmly to its original intention to secure for the
City of Victoria the most favourable arrangement as to terminal facilities and the consummation of
their transportation projects with
the least possible delay.
Lynn Valley Musical
Festival
Lynn Valley is nothing if not enterprising; so enterprising, in fact,
that on the 21st of August it is going to hold a Musical Festival under
the Presidency of the Hon. F. L. Carter Cotton. As far as The Week
knows, Lynn Valley is an adjunct of
North Vancouver, .and everybody
knows how enterprising North Vancouver is. There is an admirable
transportation service, in which the
ferry steamers and the B. C. E. R.
share the responsibility. A new Institute Hall has been opened this year
and a very capable society formed.
The Musical Director is Mr. A. Earle
Waghorn, and the Secretary, Mr. E.
V. Stuart, who can be addressed at
P. O. Box 1852, North Vancouver.
A Bishop Shocked
A visit which the Bishop of Willesden paid on a Saturday night to a
cheap shopping centre in Camden
Town filled him with horror, as he
explained the following Sunday, when
preaching at the Foundling Hospital:
"Last night, at eleven o'clock," he
said, "I happened to go through Camden Town, and stood outside butchers'
shops, where I saw a sight which I
had never before seen in my life.
Even in the eighteen years I spent iu
the west of Canada I never saw anything like it. There were a couple of
hundred people standing outside each
of those shops, simply hungry and
starving, and trying to pick up at a
very cheap price the bits of meat that
were over after the butchers' day was
done. Such a thing ought not to be.
Our civilisation is still pagan."
AN APPRECIATION
The thanks of the Over-Seas Club
are due to the following ladies and
gentlemen who furnished incidental
music during the course of the meeting on Wednesday evening: Mr.
Mittelstadt charmed the audience
with two beautiful violin solos, and
Mrs. McLaren and Messrs. Hirst and
Wootton contributed songs. Mr.
Mackenzie, who undertook all the accompaniments, also joined Mrs. McLaren in a couple of duets.

with the Premier, Sir Richard McBride, K.C.M.G., who expressed his
great regret at being prevented from

SPEED
Speed is an American mania which it
the victim to get there first, regardlei
cost, common sense, the Ten Commandn
or the casting of dust in his neighbor's
The frenzy is of general manifest
occurring in most aggravated form ir
large population centers other than Phi
phia, and in the extreme Eastern and W<
regions.
The speed mania characterizes every ■
of American life. In the matter of her
the American multi-millionaire cannot
for a family tree decently evolved th
a few generations, but must have one
over-night in some genealogical hothoustj
the domain of belles-lettres, a book
through countless editions, breaks thej
seller record, is old, forgotten, and '
minder within eight months. The ml
like the Dreadnoughtist, is pushed tol
plete her handiwork before it becomej
solete. Miladi's Easter bonnet is out 1
for commencement. The 1912 auto 1
harries the frightened pedestrian of earljj
The most essentially American i\_\
method is that of the get-rich-quick
We concede that it is right to Fletcheri|

Speed is the natural foe of comfort, [
economy, and thoroughness.    The speej

The speed frenzy is responsible for 1

Time, Big Time, Good Time, Fast Tin

THE  WINNER
(By Richard Wighttnan)
The day was  a stick that  hit him
The night was a thorn that pricked
And the little devils who fly about
To pester a fellow and tucker him|
Were very sure they'd licked him.
But the harder he got it the more he s
This human sort of a sinner—•
And he squared his shoulders and s
his wifl
And merrily tackled his tasks until
At last he proved a winner.
