THE WEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1907
!j In less thnn three weeks the
'The Municipal Municipal   government   of
Elections. Victoria will have been de
termined for another year,
ijiind at the present outlook the prospects
fare none too bright for the interests of
|the citizens. Leaving personalities out of
|the question, there are no two opinions as
to the fruitless character of the administration of the past two years. The questions which were live issues in January,
''1906, are live issues today. The only
f/vork of importance which has advanced
"die credit of the city is the construction of
concrete sidewalks and this has proceeded
with commendable despatch. This work,
.however, was not initiated under the Morley regime. On the other hand the streets
i;of Victoria have not been in as bad a
l condition for twenty years. The garbage
question has never constituted so great a
nuisance and so grave a menace. The
urgency of the water question increases
.year by year, and although it will shortly
be in the hands of the ratepayers to decide
.whether they will act upon Mr. Adam's
report or not, it is fairly chargeable against
)he Morley administration that two years
f valuable time has been wasted in reaching a conclusion which could just as well
liave been reached during the first three
months of 1906. There are other matters
■n which the City Council has blundered
n a manner which is happily rare in con-
lection with municipal management. The
inkering with the City By-laws and espe-
ially the hysterical attacks upon the
license victuallers have been quite ineffec-
iicensed victuallers have been quite ineffec-
rntended. This was amply demonstrated
•tn the recent case of the Dallas Hotel,
vhere it was found necessary to take action
inder a Provincial law, and not under the
much vaunted City By-law for which the
'vlayor has taken so much credit. The
position of the city today with respect to
ts garbage dump is one of discredit and
mmiliation, for a Municipal Council to
equire the repeated interventions of the
provincial Board of Health to compel it
0 take the most elementary precautions
i'or the protection of the public health,
'prnishes an illustration of callous indif-
jirence and incompetency which is a sufficient condemnation of all concerned. It
no defence to urge that the ratepayers
urned down the incinerator by-law. That
nay be regrettable though quite under-
tandable, but tliere is no excuse for dump-
ng garbage in one of the most conspicuous places near the centre of the city,
yhere it could not fail to be dangerous
/hen it should have been carried out to .
a, or if temporary dumping could not
be avoided, might have been carted to some
'.emote spot. The action of the Council in
tais connection savours of retaliation,
[any people would like to know more
jbout the expenditures of city money in
onnection with the Agricultural Show,
nd tlie refusal of the Mayor to furnish
Aill details of these expenditures has not
!'eakened the desire. There is another
fork of more importance than is gener-
lly realized which has been effectively
locked by a small majority of the City
Council, the Store Street matter. The

fensible, nor was it perhaps quite professional for the Colonist to publish purloined papers. But for both there is an
excellent precedent, and in this case at
any rate, the end justified the means, and
Victorians now know how important a
public work is being indefinitely delayed
by the sheer obstinacy of the Mayor and
his supporters. On the water question,
this remains to be said, that two years
delay, and some $20,000 expended in'investigations and expert reports, have only
determined that the new sources of supply
which furnished the Mayor with his ex-
There is no doubt that the ratepayers will
endorse Mr. Adams' conclusions, which
means that if the Esquimalt Waterworks
Company does not reduce its figures, half
a million dollars will be spent on improving the present system, but nothing can
alter the fact that Goldstream is the natural and ultimate source of supply. If
the Mayor and his supporters had conducted this enquiry with ordinary despatch, the city would today have been in
full enjoyment of an improved water system, instead of which they have wasted
two years, and it will be two years more

cuse for delay—Sooke Lake and the Highland District—are out of the running, and
the choice still lies, as it has always lain,
between Elk Lake and Goldstream. The
latest report of expert Adams may be
regarded as slightly more favourable to
Elk Lake than his first report, but even
now he makes it perfectly clear that he is
guided largely by economic considerations,
aiid hc advises that whilst developing Elk
Lake for present requirements it would
be policy to secure the Goldstream rights
for the future. This is exactly the position which every man in Victoria who has
carefully studied the question arrived at
long ago. It is today as it was in the
beginning of the controversy, simply a
question of the price of Goldstream rights.
before Victoria can be rendered either
sanitary or safe. The question is often
asked what can be done to remedy this
condition of affairs in our City Council?
It is recognized that there is only one
remedy, viz., to elect men of larger calibre
and greater business capacity. There are
many such men in the City, but they cannot be induced to come out because unfortunately the electoral vote is largely
swayed by considerations altogether apart
from the question of Municipal management. The truth may as well be told as
not, and if The Week does not voice it,
the Daily Press certainly will not. The
working men of Victoria will not support
an employer of labour, however excellent
his qualifications, for municipal service.

He may be a property owner, he may be
a successful business man, he may have
displayed, in other spheres, executive
ability of a high order, but if he is an
employer of labour, a black mark goes
against his name.   There is neither sense
nor reason in this attitude, the only qualifications, apart from the statutory ones,
are personal character and capacity, and
since it rests with the working men of
Victoria to decide who shall be entrusted
the management of the city's business for
the ensuing year, The Week appeals to
them to determine the matter upon a
broader basis. The policy of the City
Council affects everyone. Its action in
retarding necessary public works has de-
■ prived hundreds of labouring men of employment. The difference between enterprise and indifference is the difference between a progressive city and a dead-alive
town. Surely the working men, to say
nothing of their wives, can see through the
specious policy of men who base their
claims to public support on the fact that
they have been moral reformers "from
their infancy" and that "thank God, they
are not as other men." When it comes
to a competition for good conduct points
before the Y.M.C.A. and the W.C.T.U.,
most sane people will consider that the
situation is being burlesqued. If municipal elections are to be decided in this
manner there is likely to be a dearth of
suitable candidates. In this workaday
world there are probably only two men who
could pass the entrance examination, and
"they are not as other men," happily for
the others. By such men Victoria has been
made a laughing stock for two years. It
rests with the working men to determine
whether the reproach shall be removed on
January 16th.
No. 7 of Volume 1 of the
Not Up-to-Date. Western   Investor   is   to
hand. This little leaflet
reaches The Week month by month, and
is a valuable guide to investors. It usually deals in an intelligent manner with
Western industries and stocks, but the
latest issue contains a conspicuous
example of how not to do it. On page 3,
under the heading of Stock Bargains for
Investors, it gives a list of leading stocks
whicli it culls from the last published report for 1906. The great changes which
have taken place during the present year
render these figures valueless as a guide to
present investment, and if rectified to date,
the changes would necessitate the elimination of several stocks from the list. Some
have ceased to pay dividends, and the market price of most of them is widely different from what it was a year ago. It
would have been more to tlie purpose to
publish present quotations, present dividends, and to work out on this basis the
yield on investment. The Western Investor quotes with approbation an editorial
from The Week on the subject of coal
shortage, and endorses the opinion therein
expressed that no branch of industry offers
better chances to the capitalist than coal
mining. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1907.

A Lady's Letter *
By BABETTE.
Dear Madge:
Here I am Xmas shopping in
Mexico! Of course you have never
shopped in Mexico or watched Mexican women shop, so I am going to
tell you my experiences. My friend
and I after steering ourselves safely
through the crowd, dodging automobiles and whirling cabs, emerged
triumphantly at the portal of one of
Mexico's large department stores.
The shop was crowded with a well
dressed, well behaved crowd, not at
all like a bargain rush at Xmas time
in Victoria. There were more people
than the clerks could attend to, and
we congratulated ourselves that we
could not get waited on at once.
I looked around me with interest.
Here wcre silks and embroidered
gowns, jewelled fans and costly laces.
There were swarms of customers
coming and going and waiting; elegantly gowned women, Mexicans,
Americans, French and German, all
ladies of high social standing and
stately bearing. Mingled here and
there among this cosmopolitan crowd
were picturesque looking "Peores,"
the men wearing broad brimmed and
gaily embroidered high pointed hats,
and the women with their heads and
shoulders draped in quaint "rebozas."
The clerks were polite and the conversation on all sides animated. But
somehow I did not feel at home. I
missed the fierce crush, the incessant
hurry of the clerks, and tlieir vehement, earnest protestations that "It's
the very best silk and extremely
cheap at the price," when you knew
you had seen the same identical quality at another store for two cents
less, or was it two cents more? Anyhow, I felt lonesome and stole a look
at my friend, who by the way, was
a young American man of football
fame. I was just in time to see him
slip his football nose-guard into his
pocket. "Thought I might need it,"
he explained. Thought it might be
like doing our Xmas shopping in old
Chicago. It don't seem just right,"
he sighed wistfully, "I somehow miss
the old familiar call of 'cash.' Everything so quiet, and everyone so
casual," he explained. "You would
think—Hello! isn't she a dream," and
I left him busy while I turned to
watch the crowd again.
My friend was right. There was
no hurry—no confusion, no rushing of
clerks or excited calls; everything
was leisurely and quiet. The customer
entered—Broadcloth? Yes, he would
show Madam. What colour did she
desire? and the particular shade was
brought. But the quality was not just
what Madame wished. The quality
indicated, the clerk, courteous and
obliging, went to seek it. Yet it never
seemed to occur to him to exhibit for
her inspection the various colours
and qualities, that she might better
make her selection, and on her part
Madame never seemed to think that
necessary or desirable. If she wished
to see this it was brought. If she
was finally suited, well and good, if
not, it was immaterial to him. Thc
purchase made its exact amount was
carefully figured up, the package
wrapped and delivered, courteous
adieus exchanged and the clerk
shook hands with Madame and
bowed her out. Next he turned listlessly and regardless of waiting customers, proceeded to fold carefully
and slowly the various rolls of goods
which Madame had inspected, replaced them on the shelf, and turned
to the next in line.
"What next?" I asked, and my companion pointed to a store across thc
street: "Looks like a pretty big place
over there," he said, and over we
went. At the first counter, I saw
the "dream" who had crossed from
the other shop, and his ready selection was explained. However, it was
a big place, much larger than the one
we had just left. As we entered I
noticed a long line of clerks standing  behind  the  counter,  directly  in

front of the main entrance. Very dignified, very erect, and very rigid they
were, every hair in place, everything
just so. Alert, attentive, waiting. I
left my friend making his purchase,
and strolled about. Then I noticed
a big brown car whirling around the
corner and stopping in front of the
store; the door swung open and a
lady stepped out. Tastily, daintily
gowned, hat that spoke of Paris, she
looked the aristocrat to the core, as
I knew she was after one look at
her clear-cut patrician face, a face
beautiful, full of dignity and strength,
a woman so typical in every respect
of the Mexican of the higher classes.
Instantly every clerk was smiling and
attentive. Gracefully she bowed to
them all and then to the one whom
she favours with her custom, she extended a prettily gloved hand, and
with smiling courtesy wished him the
greetings of the day. Then ensued a
sprightly, animated conversation, on
various topics, touching every subject
perhaps, save the mission which
brought her there. With smiles and
graceful gestures the conversation
was punctuated, and the clerk held
his own. All through he stood graceful, erect anO smiling, agreeing with
easy grace to her every assertion, interested and considerate, he awaited
her pleasure. Finally, it occurred to
my lady that she wished some article,
and at this point we saw a vast difference in the attention here, and at
the shop we last visited. My lady
must be pleased and the clerk's energies in that direction were untiring.
Pile after pile of various things he
placed before her; if she but glanced
in the direction of some article, it
was in her hands, and the bargaining
went gaily on. Thus under a rapid
fire of sparkling conversation she
looked at this, examined that, priced
the one and made a pretty gesture
of dismay at the dearness of the
other. She was fully posted on prices
and knew quality and values, and
when she was satisfied, the price paid,
thc good-byes said, my lady tripped
out to the waiting auto. There was
a sudden "honk," a swift blur of
brown and I knew that I had seen
the real thing when it comes to my
lady's Xmas shopping in Mexico.
In sharp contrast to this deliberate,
courteous, unruffled method of shopping of the women of Mexico, there
came to me a vision of a similar scene
in tho United States, a scene with
different background and a setting of
different colours. A department store
in New York, where I once happened to shop at Xmas time. There
is the same rush and confusion in
the streets, the same dodging of
autos and cabs; there is the gasoline
smell and the jam at the stores, and
there is more. Get into the jam, follow the crowd and you find yourself
at last in the store. A policeman in
uniform or a detective in plain clothes
rescues you from the fighting mob;
you adjust your hat, take a shy look
in the glass, and follow your leader.

stool. "Irish laces," and the girl has
gone to bring them. The laces
bought the selection made and madam
rises.   "Charge and send to No.	
Avenue," and madam "trails gracefully or "sweeps regally" (according to
the mood of the reporter) to her
coach or car.
I don't know—but I believe I prefer the leisurely, languid shopping of
my lady in Mexico, in preference to
the hurry of her northern sister.
There is a grace about it that appeals
to one, a graceful pretty manner of
shopping that could be copied with
profit, and the very deference which
my lady receives from the waiting
clerks is evidence that courtesy in
shopping is an investment which pays,
is an unconscious tribute to a graceful custom.

To the Editor of The Week.
Sir,—I do not think that it was
the intention of "Rambler" to insult
Catholics in his "Notes on the Old
Land," published in your issue of
the 14th inst., and therefore recommend to all those that feel aggrieved
at his criticisms and statements to
act on the advice of St. Paul
(Ephesians 4: 32).
I am glad to know the object of
"Rambler's" visit to the Oratory, and
that his money (six cents) was well
spent in paying—not for his devotion,
) but  for   his   seat  at  the   Carmelites
' Chapel. •
Paley and Jeremy Taylor in form-
1 ing a theory of morals lay down a
maxim about the lawtuiness of lying
under certain circumstances stated by
ithem.   "Rambler"  may be  a  patron
of the rule of the Economy, by failing
to   describe   with   particularity   the
*, "modern  costume,  etc."   The  words
used are too indefinite to justify any
harsh   terms   being  applied  to  him.
Apparently his desire was to excite
the curiosity of the reader.   It nevertheless  is a fact that a great many
of the "enlightened ones" are under
the   impression   that   Catholics   are
taught, and do worship the Blessed
Virgin.    Such is not the case; it is
' a  vulgar   error—as   already   pointed
1 out in the able letter of Mr. Llewel-
leyn-Wood, in your issue of the 19th
I instant.
I submit that the criterion of worship is belief and intention.   To give
therefore to His creatures the honour
due to God would be an act of idolatry.   Catholics   pray   to   God   with
the belief and intention of worshipping. Theologians designate the wor-
. ship due to God as cultus latriae. The
! worship which is based on the finite
1 excellence    of   a   creature,   such as
given to the Blessed Virgin, and to
the Saints, is called honour or ven-
'eration,  and  not  worship  as  in  the
j first mentioned sense.   The form of
invocation to the Blessed Virgin and
I the Saints is "Pray for Us" or "intercede  for  us,"  not "Have  mercy  on
us."   I may also ask "Rambler" when
he  again  visits  the  Oratory  or  the
Carmelites Chapel to pray for us in
B. C.   Allow me to refer to Boswell's
Life of Johnson.
Boswell—What do you think of the
Idolatry of the Mass?
Johnson—Sir, there is no idolatry,
1 They believe  God  to be  there,  and
,',adore Him.
Boswell—The invocation of Saints?
Johnson—They do not worship the
Saints; they invoke them;   they only
1 ask their prayers.
I will quote the words of a famous
Anglican,  and  scholar, a  convert  to
Rome.   "From   a   boy   I   have   been
lead to consider that my Maker and
I,   His   creature,  were  the   two   be-
lings,  luminously such, in rerum na-
ftura.   Only this I know full well now,
\ (a Catholic) and did not know then,
(Anglican), that the Catholic church
! allows no image of any sort, material
'or  immaterial, no  dogmatic  symbol.
rno rite, no sacrament, no Saint, not
even the   Blessed  Virgin  herself,  to
i come between the soul and its Cre-
I ator.   It is  face to face  "colus cum
I solo,"   in   all   matters   between   man
I and his God.    He alone creates; He
talone has redeemed; before His awful
[eyes we go in death; in the vision of
His is our eternal beatitude."    Since
1 our Creator has conferred the great-
lest of all dignities on the second Eve
I no praises of man should be considered    excessive    in    honouring    the
Queen   of   Heaven.   All   generations
[shall call her Blessed.

Sporting
Comment.
As was expected the defeat of the
Victoria Rugby team at Vancouver
has had a very bad effect on the followers of the game in this city and
the financial success of the Stanford-
Victoria match will be made much
harder than it would have been if
the local players had won the match.
Although it was anticipated that the
local team would have a hard time
in the Terminal City it wa3 hardly
expected that they would be snowed
under as they were. It is well
known that it was a very weak aggregation that made the trip, but even
at that it they should have made a
better showing. I have on several
occasions lately pointed out Lhe depressing effect which results from
sending a weak team away to play
the strongest aggregation that can
be got together by their opponents,
but nothing can be said that will show
more clearly the effect than the result of the game on Saturday. It is
all very well for the supporters of
the game to render every assistance
in their power, but unless the players
themselves take some interest in the
game they might as well hand in their
clothes. At the present time there is
not more than half of those who are
playing this season who care whether
the championship comes to Victoria or
not. There are players in this city
who are only too anxious to get out
and play "at home," but when it
comes to travelling they are found
wanting. The majority are what
might be called fair weather sports
and  what  assistance  they  render on
their own grounds is nothing compared to the effect that their absence
has on the team when away from
home. It was not till six o'clock last
Friday evening that a full team was
secured to make the trip and at that
it included several players who are
not yet qualified to hold their places
in a good intermediate team, but it
is to their credit that they did not
refuse to don their clothes in an attempt to uphold the honour of the
city which they call home. If every
player in the city was imbued with
the same idea there would be such
football played as has never before
been seen in this city. The result of
the game on Saturday last shows
plainly that many changes will have
to be made before the team lines up
against Stanford, otherwise the score
in that game will be decidedly worse
than it was at Vancouver. This afternoon the local combination will
meet a team known as the misfits, but
unless the players who now compose
the senior organization make a better
showing than they have this season,
it will be in order to reverse the
names. This suggestion is not made
as a joke but in dead earnest and if
the old timers are successful in lowering the colors of the senior combination it should be in order for them
to uphold the honour of the city
against Stanford. There is still time
for the local team to be rounded into
shape to meet the players from the
South and after the miserable showing that was made in Vancouver it
should be held every evening with a
practice at scrimmage, formation afterwards in the J.B.A.A. club, but
nothing has been done to follow up
these good resolutions. On Sunday
last the Vancouver team took a fif-
t°on-mi!e walk, this on top of their
victory over Victoria shows that the
Terminal city players are out to win,
but it appears as if the local exponents are contented to remain at the
bottom, and unless a decided change
is made before January 4th it is a
certainty that they will remain there
for the remainder of this season. It
is hoped that the players one and
all will see that something must be
done to hold the interest of the game
in this city and use every effort to
bring the team out on top.
The deciding games in the Victoria
District League will be played this
afternoon and considerable interest is
being taken in the results. The
James Bay team is still at the head
of the list with every prospect of
winning, but still there is a chance
that they might be tied for first
honours but to do this they must
lose both fixtures. A tie in either of
the games will give them the championship and it is almost certain that
they will at least make a draw of
one. The Bays have made a fine entry into Association football, this being the first season that the club
has been represented. The team is
composed with one or two exceptions
of players who have this season graduated from the intermediate ranks
and that they have been able to win
from the older exponents is greatly
to their credit. So far they have gone
through the schedule without a defeat, in what has been a very heavy
schedule and that they have been able
to maintain their place at the top of
the league is something that not only
the players themselves should be
proud of but also the other members
of the club, but unfortunately they
do not get the support from the club
which they deserve.    It is only nat
ural that the other clubs should make
extra efforts to down the leaders, but
the methods that have been adopted
by some of the teams is not exactly
what might be called good sport.
Good keen rivalry in down the leaders
is all very well and the under teams
generally have the support of the
spectators, but when the teams commence to allow their desire to win
get the better of them and start, not
only from other clubs, but from other
cities it is hardly a square deal, but
it reflects more credit on the Bays
in so far being able to hold their own
against any combination that has been
secured to try and have the honour of
being the first team to defeat the
leaders. Considerable credit of the
victories of the Bays is due to Manager Duncan who has been very active is getting his team in shape. If
Victoria possessed more of this style
of sports the game would be far more
interesting than what it is.

LOOK AT THIS LIST OF NEW EDISON RECORDS
FOR  JANUARY  1908
.
9722 In the Clock Store (Orthl Edison Concert Band
One of the features of this descriptive selection is the musical clock
chiming "Blue Bells of Scotland," followed by the various other
clocks all striking the hour together.
9723 Down in the Old Cherry Orchard (Henry) Frederic Rose
A fascinating new rural ballad with a waltz refrain that lingers
with one from the time of first hearing.
9724 Smilet Smile! Smile! (Hoffman) Ada Jones & Billy Murray
"I could learn to love you when you smile! smile! smile!" as sung
in "The Rogers Bros, in Panama." A most tuneful selection, delightfully rendered.
9725 She's Such a Love (Catlin) Albert Benzler
A song and dance played by the bells and orchestra. It is one
of the old timers, full of melody and grace.
9726 Dreaming (Dailey) Irving Gillette
A beautiful sentimental song now very much admired in many
parts of the country.
9727 Who Do You Love? (Johnson) Collins & Harlan
One of the comic song hits from Cole & Johnson's "Shoo Fly
Regiment"   sung   as   a   coon duet.
9728 When It's Moonlight Mary Darling 'Neath the Old Grape Arbor
Shade (Hell) Manuel Romain
J. Fred. Helf's newest descriptive ballad with the scene laid in
"Dixie" and sung by the foremost minstrel tenor.
9729 Don't Get Married Any More, Ma! (Pether) Ada Jones
Selected from Vesta Victoria's new bunch of songs and confidently expected to equal, if not surpass in popularity her "Waiting at the Church" and "Poor John."
9730 Mariutch (Von Tilzer) James Brockman
A comic Italian dialect song telling how "Mariutch make-a de
hootch-a ma kootch down at Coney Isle.
9731 O Moment That I Bless (Dennee) Mr. and Mrs. Waterous
A  beautiful   sentimental  soprano and baritone duet, sung by two
new operatic artists to our record catalogue.
973B Ev'ry Ship Will Find a Harbor (Schmid) Byron G. Harlan
A tuneful ballad with a catchy march chorus, which never fails
to arouse interest.    The words tell an unusually pretty story.
9733 Punch  and  Judy—Intermezzo   (Henry) Edison Military Band
A new instrumental selection by the composer of "Peter Piper"
and numerous other hits, both vocal and instrumental.
9734 When the Hammer on the Anvil Rings (Havez) Ada Jones
A novel comic song, picturing a scene in which the ladies are
said to frequently take part. Reference to the "hammer" and
some effects borrowed from the "Anvil Chorus" make very plain
indeed the ungallant idea of the composer.
Price
40c.

9735 Some Blessed Day (Nevin) Edison Mixed Quartette
A sacred selection of exceptional beauty, sung by a quartette of
mixed voices.
9736 Just Because He Couldn't Sing "Love Me and the World Is Mine"
(Fitzgibbon) Arthur Collins
A funny coon song telling how his "steady gal" handed him "a
nice fat juicy lime," because of a love song another beau had
taught  her.
9737 The Rosary (Nevin) Hans Kronold
Ethelbert Nevin's most popular song artistically performed as a
'cello solo, accompanied by piano.
9738 What  Will  Your  Answer  Be?  (Cupero) Reed Miller
There are few prettier waltz songs than this one. Lew Dock-
stader's  Minstrels delight audiences with it nightly.
9739 Wedding Bells   (Original) Ada Jones & Len Spencer
A Down East character sketch suggestive of No. 9148, " The
Golden Wedding." It is entirely unlike that famous selection in
subject and characters, but the scenes and situations are equally
impressive and the music just as beautiful.
9740 Dat Friend of Mine (Van Alstyne) Bob Roberts
The friend referred to in this unique coon song is "Me, I and
Us." Harry Williams, writer of the words, makes "Jim" say "I'm
de one best friend of mine." The reasons for such selfishness
ness Jim explains as he sings.
9741 Suwanee  River with  Orchestra Variations (Foster-Ecke)
Edison Symphony Orchestra
The grand old tune is given complete and added to it are artistic
variations by violin, piccolo, duet by cornets, bassoon, and duet by
clarinets, in all making a record most novel and entertaining.
g74B Dixie Dan (Furth) Billy Murray
The soon song hit from "The Gay White Way." Dan sings of
the "gal with the corkscrew hair," "way down South in the land
of cotton."
9743 Rock Me to Sleep Mother (Lesley) Edison Male Quartette
Many know well this old song, popular over two generations ago,
and will be delighted with it in quartette form.
9744 Thim Were the  Happy Days   (Original) Steve Porter
An Irish dialect sketch, in which Mr. Porter plays a double part,
that of Danny McGuire and his sweetheart Katie Hogan.
9745 In Monkey Land Medley  (Original) Edison Military Band
Comprising three December hits: "In Monkey Land," "Won't
You Waltz 'Home Sweet Home,' With Me for Old Time's Sake"
and "Two Blue Eyes."

0 anything to aid in its discovery,
'ictoria is the home of sport in
ritish Columbia, and the achieye-
lents of the J. B. A. A. are among
s most priceless records. Any man
light well be proud to belong to a
ty with such an athletic past, and
ct today if the truth must be told,
nd it is folly to hide it, sport is
most dead in the Capital city. Let
:e prove my statement.
In the first place the public will not
attend matches; I do not care which
branch you take, the result is the
same. I suppose I have been present
at twenty football matches this season, some of them good, a few excellent; I am certain that on no
occasion has the attendance of the
public reached four hundred. In Vancouver I have seen two thousand
people present at a football match.
Baseball and lacrosse are dead, hockey brings out at the most two hundred spectators. Basketball, which
only a few years ago used to .fill the
Drill Hall, is lucky if it draws three
hundred people, and yet the latter
game at any rate was never so well
played in its history. Cricket is said
to be looking up, and I think it is
so far as the interest of the players
and the press is concerned, but even
here one cannot be gratified at an attendance which last summer never exceeded four hundred, and which was
obviously more social than sporting
in its aspect.
It is not so long since there was
a boating ancl a yachting club in Victoria, no one ever hears of either
now, and but for the club races of the
J.B.A.A. our splendid nautical advantages would bc ignored entirely.
It is not so in Vancouver which is
rapidly forging ahead and building up
splendid teams in every department
of sport. It is not so in other smaller
cities of the Province, and I make
bold to say that Victoria is the only
place which shows this decadence.
I revert to my question, why is it?
And I am unable to suggest an adequate reply. It is not altogether, although it may be in part, due to thc
fact that the quality of the sport is
not of the highest, but that is not a
sufficient explanation because a man
with sporting blood in him must and
will have athletics, if not the best,
then the be.'-t he can get.
I wonder if the citizens of Victoria
ever think of the commercial value
of athletics, and this is putting it on
the lowest ground. Victoria is the
only city I know which has not discovered that is it one of the most
valuable assets, and tends not only to
attract people, but to hold them. I
am certain that if Victoria is to develop, as everyone hopes, along the
lines of a residential city, it will have
to regain its lost reputation as the
leader of athletics.
All the fault does not rest with the
public, and I want to say a word in
conclusion to the players. They probably will not thank me, and may
even feel aggrieved, but I have no
other object than to advance the true
interests of sport.
Perhaps the lesson I would convey
may well be gathered from the following questions. Why did not a
fuller representative team go over to
Vancouver on Saturday last to engage
in one of the most important Rugby
games of the season? The success of
the Stanford match here depended entirely upon the showing of the Victoria team in Vancouver. Now what
can we reasonably expect in the way
of a gate?
Why did some of the players who
would be offended if their amateur
standing were called in question positively refuse to go at the last moment unless their expenses were paid?
There was not a man on the team
who could not afford $5. And when
amateurs show by their conduct that
they think so little of the game, what
can they expect from the public?
Why could neither the Victoria or
J.B.A.A. teams turn out in full
strength for the advertised match on
Christmas morning? Are they in such
good fettle that they can afford to
forego even one practice match in
view of the Stanford visit? I am
credibly informed that the Vancouver
Rugby team have taken a fifteen-mile
run every day this week to get ready
for their big matches. Can anyone
inform me when either of the Victoria
teams, Rugby or Soccer, ran a mile
for training.
I havc come to the conclusion
that whatever else may be necessary
to revive the public interest in sport,
the first and most necessary thing is
for the players themselves to show
that they are in the game because
they love it, and that they are willing to train and train hard in order
that they may not disgrace the record
of their city as they have been doing
lately.

trU^-jAW,
Pantages  Theatre.
The management must be congratulated upon the very clever and attractive programme that they have
furnished the patrons of the house
this week. It is one of the best all
round bills that has been seen for
some time. Every act is a feature
one and has given general satisfaction. Davis & Walker, the coloured
team, are a bright pair of entertainers,
their comedy being clean and up-to-
date; thc lady possesses a voice much
above the average and as a vocalist
displays more than ordinary ability;
the male member is a good comedian and does some eccentric dancing which makes a big hit. They
have been very popular at all performances. The act of the Flood Sisters is a very novel one, their rolling
globe and unsupported ladder feats
are cleverly performed. Murray Simon, the Hebrew comedian, plainly
speaking, "is all right." His dialect
is good and his songs, stories and
Jewish dance is funny and takes well.
Baby Patsey is a cute and clever little
performer and wins the hearts quickly
of all present. We have never as yet
seen one so young whose dancing is
so perfect. Coleman & Mexis, in
their trick and fancy shooting ,are
really marvelous, all their work being
done gracefully and accurately. Miss
Crawford's song, "The best Thing in
Life," is sung very acceptably and the
illustrations are very pretty. The
Pantagescope motion picture, "College Chums," is an amusing one, and
concludes an entertainment that is
certainly up-to-date in every particular. Another good company has been
booked for next week.

Eyes, Feet, Hands and Voices That
Are Worth Fortunes.   You can
Insure    Everything    Except
Your Heart.
Genius, like the silver soup ladle
and the family coffee pot, may be
insured. If you are lucky enough to
be a wonderful pianist, you can estimate your little finger at a big figure,
and get good money when you arc
unable to dally with the ivory white
keys. Suppose you are a dancer, and
some rude, cumbersome, galloping
creature steps on your toe, simply sit
down and fold your hands and think
of the things that will be bought by
the big check that the insurance company is so delighted to make out in
your name.
Among the curiosities ln insurance
policies are those issued to great
artists, who pay immense premiums
to insure against accident to hands,
eyes, feet and .throats. Kubelik's
right hand is insured for $50,000,
and for this he pays a premium of
$1,500 a year. If Kubelik's hand were
to be disabled, there is no telling
what Kubelik might suffer, he being
unqualified for the ordinary job of
bill collector or any lesser role than
that which he now occupies. 'His
policy also reads to the effect that
if an accident to his hand prevents
him from fulfilling an engagement, he
will receive $10,000, and if he loses
his hand entirely, he shall receive
the full $50,000. Compare that, however, with the fact that Kubelik earns
from $80,000 to $120,000 a year and
you will see that $50,000 is a mere
bagatelle to what the great artist
would lose if his hand should be entirely severed. Seriously it is a question that can only be considered in a
most lengthy manner.
Paderewski's beautiful tapering fingers are also insured, but for a mere
$45,000, but Paderewski earns more
than Kubelik, although each stands
at the head of his class among the
violinists and pianists of the world.
Paderewski, however, is an older man
and better established in the world's
goods, has a beautiful home, and
many bonded interests. Kubelik is a
young man, is equally endowed with
family and home, but in all probability his bank account is much less
than that of Padereswki.
Hence these insurance policies, all,
however, carried in American companies, show that American enterprise
has entered into all the marts of the
world, and in this instance, has come
out victorious.
Louise Homer and Madame Gadski
vie with each other in tlieir valuation
of their lovely white throats, which
hold an insurance policy of $50,000
each. At the slightest cough, they
see themselves possessed of even
more wealth than these wealthy ladies
now own.
It is a safe guess that if these
singers are like other women, they
spend that insurance money many
times before they get it. A touch
of tonsilitis, and they cry, "I am losing my voice! The $50,000, it will
soon be mine I I shall buy another
yard of diamonds, and enough pearls
to use for a clothes line I" and there
goes her insurance money again.
These are strange policies, but it
all goes to show that genius is fre
quently an excellent business partner,
and a deep lott. Talent is not all
emotion. No indeed, and so the great
artists of the day have thus discovered it.
Primrose Minstrels.
The Primrose Minstrels gave their
evergreen show at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday night. It was
as good, as clean and as up to date
as ever, and this is saying a great
deal for a show that has been on the
road for thirty years under the same
management.
That best of all American plays
dealing with graft-financial, political
and social, "The Lion and the Mouse"
is coming to the Victoria theatre
Monday, December 30. Since the remarkable work of Charles Klein was
lirst seen here, many things have occurred which makes the return of the
drama a matter of psychological interest, in view of the numerous cases
against the trusts and captains of industry, which are now before the
courts. Five years ago "The Lion
and the Mouse" would have been a
failure, for the simple reason that the
public did not ask "where did he get
it?" but rather "how much is he
worth?"
When the play was first produced
the insurance scandals were just
reaching the public nostrils, then came
the action against ihe trusts and the
railroads and the public at large discovered that the so-called leaders in
high finance were a little short of
pirates.
The story of "The Lion and the
Mouse" is briefly this: John Burkett
Ryder, the richest man in the world,
who controls the government, suddenly finds that his gigantic schemes
are blocked by the decisions of a
federal jurist, Judge Rossmore. Ryder
swears to ruin him, and does financially, besides making arrangements
to have him impeached in the senate.
The judge's daughter, Shirley Ross-
more, and Ryder's boy, Jefferson,
meet while on a trip abroad, fall in
love and return engaged. The girl,
learning of her father's impending
dishonour, determines to save his
good name. She writes a book, scoring Ryder, his ilk and their methods,
which   creates   a  sensation.
Ryder sends for her, and is so captivated by her wit, and womanliness
that he engages her to write his autobiography, making her a member of
his household. Of course discovery
is certain, and in a tremendous scene
between these two, the lion and the
mouse, the girl leaves the house.
This season Henry B. Harris is
sending to the west a remarkable cast
to present the piece, headed by Miss
Dorothy Donnelly and Paul Everton.
history treated its patrons to a finer
entertainment.
For New Year's week another all-
star programme will be headed by
the St. Onge Bros., in a remarkable
trick and comedy bicycle act, and
Rinaldo, the wandering violinist, who
deserves, according to report, to rank
with the great instrumentalists of the
world. Other numbers are: Miss
Nan Ryan and Company, of six boys
and girls, in a melange of music and
dancing, which is a pot-pourri of all
that is latest ancl best on Broadway;
Dan Gracey and Ada B. Burnett in
their laughable skit "Rehearsal," introducing good singing, eccentric dancing and up-to-date comedy; Richard
Harding, black-face monologist; Thos.
J. Price in a new illustrated sung;
good Moving Pictures, and a new
Overture by the orchestra.
New Grand.
The entertainment at thc New
Grand this week is a surprise even
to those who expected that Manager
Jamieson would put up something
quite out of the ordinary for Christmas. The Arab troupe are unique
in every respect and undoubtedly
give one of the very best acrobat
turns now before the public. They
arc whirlwind performers and skilful
in every department of their work.
This turn in itself is well wort the
cost of the whole entertainment. The
Rosaires' slack wire act is a thriller,
and Gray and Graham with their
novel comedy-musical act score a
success. On the whole it is doubtful
if the  New Grand  has  in  its whole
The Whole Truth.
There was never any doubt that a
person who asked Mary Anne Potter
a question would get a truthful answer, no matter how trying it might
be to Mary Anne to give it. She was
even known on occasions to give information unrequired and unflattering to herself, says the Youth's Companion.
One such occasion arose when, after Miss Potter's six months' sojourn with a western cousin, a thrifty
widower secured her for his bride,
and accompanied her to a justice of
the peace to be married.
"This is your first marriage?" inquired the justice, as if in duty
bound.
A high color flamed on Mary Anne's
cheek bones, but she gazed unflinchingly at her questioner.
"Yes, sir; it's my first chance," she
said grimly. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1907.

The Western Provinces and British Columbia in particular have for some considerable time felt the urgent need of an institution
such as thc proposed Bank of Vancouver. The formation of new industries and the developing of those already established, has been
seriously retarded for want of ordinary financial accommodation, and the primary object of this new hank will be to alleviate the situation
by largely confining its operations to the splendid field awaiting it in tlie Pacific Coast Provinces, and more especially in British
Columbia.
The bank proposes to do business on the safe and well-laid-down lines of the old established banks, and will earn their respect and
goodwill by a continuation of this policy.
The Bank of Montreal has its head office in Montreal.
The Bnnk of Toronto has its head office in Toronto.
The Bnnk of Ottawa has its head office in Ottawa.
The Bauk of Hamilton has its head office in Hamilton.
The standing of these banks is beyond question.

A British Columbia Review,

Vol. IV.   No. 48
THE WEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 38, 1907
Three at least of the mem-
Asiatic hers for B. C. constituencies
Exclusion. have delivered excellent
speeches at Otta.wa during
the last week in the course of the debate
on Asiatic Exclusion. Probably Messrs.
Sloan, Smith and McPherson never so distinguished themselves in Parliament, and
they may now be said to have fairly lined
up in favour of Exclusion. In the middle
of the Christmas holidays there is not time
to enter into a lengthy argument on this
engrossing subject, but in the next issue
of The Week will be found an article covering the whole ground and presenting an
aspect of the case which has not been
frankly dealt with in any of the speeches
which have been delivered. The Week
P realizes that this is the most important
question which has ever engaged the attention of the public, more important, and
more far-reaching in its influence than
that of Confederation which so stirred the
people nearly forty years ago. But because the question is so big, and presents
so many aspects for consideration, it is
all the more necessary that it should be
, thoroughly ventilated, and that no feature
should be overlooked. The Province has
' made up its mind on the principle of ex-
' elusion, or at any rate of controllable, re-
\ striction. All that remains is to effect this
1 by constitutional means. It is here that
! divergence of opinion occurs, and it is
'towards the unification of policy that all
,discussion should be directed. Judging
from the tone of the Eastern Canadian
Press, the dictum of the editor of the
i Montreal Herald still holds good, "The
East has to be converted." While the
result of Mr. Lemieux's mission cannot
,yet be officially declared enough has
leaked out to make it clear that the Japanese Government will not, and cannot
sanction any variation in the terms of the
Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Alliance.
Canada will have to be content with the
verbal assurances which have been given
to her ambassador. Just what they
are is not known, but judging from
the optimistic character of Mr. Lemieux's remarks at the banquet given
in his honour at Tokio, they must be satisfactory to him. The Week has the
highest authority for stating that they are
satisfactory to the Dominion Government,
and that there is no probability whatever
of any appeal being made to the Imperial
Government for any variation in the
Treaty. This would leave the matter exactly where it was before Mr. Lemieux set
out, and if confirmed makes it clear that
not by any official agreement with Japan
but by the exercise of diplomatic restraint
the acuteness of the problem will be relieved, if not solved. How far this conclusion will be acceptable to British Colombia remains to be seen. It leaves the
Conservative party no alternative, but to
re-enact Mr. Bowser's Bill during the first
hours of the session, and press for its endorsation by the Federal Government.
[Timber
I Reserve.
The Provincial Government
on Monday placed a reserve
on all unstaked timber land
in the Province. The
policy was a wise one and can be defended
on every ground. Sufficient timber has
been staked and licensed to furnish all the
lumber which can possibly find a market
EDITORIAL
for at least ten years. The building of
mills and the development of a lumbering
industry has not been commensurate with?
the staking of lands. The income from'
the renewal of licenses will furnish the
Government with an annual revenue of
$1,500,000, and the time has undoubtedly
arrived to call a halt, and to shape a policy
which will ensure the opening up of the
large tracts of timber already licensed, and
an adequate supply of cheap lumber for
the needs of the Province. This is the
legitimate business of the Government.
The fact that speculation may have been
chiefly responsible for the extensive move-
of party politics are so unreasonable that
if the present course had been adopted
earlier the Government would have been
charged with checking developmnt before
it had fairly started. The Chief Commissioner has declared that concurrently with
the announcement of the reserve the Government is considering its future policy
on the timber question, aud it is known
that some alterations in the present law
are contemplated. The Week believes, and
in this it is supported by the largest operators in the lumber industry, as well as
by the newly-formed Lumbermen's Association, that the present laws are the best
THE MAGICIAN
a NEW YEAR'S GIFT
(Republished by request from The Week of January Sth, 1907)
R. G. Tatlow, loquitur—I waved my magic wand last year and hey presto! the deficit
disappeared.   I repeat the movement and the last Provincial debt vanishes.
ment in the staking of timber land is no
argument against the policy which encouraged it. Without speculation and the
assurance of large profits, no new country
would ever be developed. The wise Government encourages legitimate speculation
and calls a halt when it has gone far
enough. The cavilling of the Liberal press
in this connection is amusing; it claims
that the reserve should have been imposed
long ago. With less than one-twentieth,
and possibly less than one-thirtieth of
tlie timber-bearing lands of the Province
actually staked, this contention becomes
puerile, and it is certain that the exigencies
in vogue on this Continent, and that at the
present time only two important alterations are needed. The first is that special
timber licenses should be made renewable
at the expiration of the present term of
twenty-one years for a further period of
twenfy-one years; and the second that the
present rate of annual rental for special
timber licences should be made statutory
for the present renewal term of twenty-
one years. Any tinkering with the general
provisions of an Act which bas worked so
advantageously for the Province and under
which capital has been so widely attracted,
is to be deprecated.

One Dollar Per Annum
The Monetary Times of
Canadian December 14th contains a
Banks. synopsis of the annual re
port of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce showing net profits amounting to $1,752,341). After paying a dividend at the rate of 8 per cent., and writing
off large amounts for the pension fund and
bank premises account, the large sum of
$075,912 is carried forward as undistributed profit. There are noteworthy increases of liquid assets amounting to
$4,000,000 in coin, bullion, Dominion
notes and call and short loans. This is
all very creditable to the management of
the bank, and must be gratifying to the
shareholders, but what Western Canada
would like to know is why, with such a
splendid showing, and such a large increase
in available cash assets, the West should
be unable to borrow money for legitimate
business purposes, even though it contributes a large amount, estimated by competent authorities at $40,000,000, to the
deposits of the banks. Some people are
never tired of patting the Canadian banking system on the back, but it is not immaculate. Its stability cannot bc questioned but its liberality is unknown in
the West, and if it displays this virtue, it
sedulously confines its operations to the
East. The insistent demand for Western
banking institutions is gaining in force,
and statements like that of the Bank
of Commerce, which show that funds are
available, but are witheld from Western
investment, assuredly point a moral.
More than a year ago The
A Plausible Week called attention to
Scoundrel.        the indecent character and
immoral teachings of an
American magazine entitled "Physical
Culture." This precious pamphlet, owing
to the supineness of the Canadian postal
authorities, was enjoying a large circulation in the Dominion. A copy of The
Week and a few specimen pages of the
pamphlet were forwarded to the Postmaster General eliciting a very satisfactory
reply, and a promise that circulation
through the mails should at once be
stopped. This took place before the passing of the Dominion Act. Recently the
American authorities went after the editor,
one Bernarr MacFadden, laid him by the
heels, convicted him of circulating immoral publications, fined him $2,000 and
sentenced him to two years hard labour
in the New Jersey State Penitentiary.
Unfortunately this specious scoundrel was
able to appeal, and being liberated on bail
lias the effrontery to announce that he is
arranging a series of lecture tours. He
also offers for sale his popular book, "The
Building of Vital Power," and his
"Physical Culture Magazine." Just how
it is possible for a convicted criminal to
continue to circulate indecent literature,
is a little bit of a puzzle, and it is greatly
to he regretted that there is no means of
preventing his circular from passing
through the Canadian mails. It is to be
hoped that his appeal will meet with the
response it deserves, nnd that a sharp lookout will be kept on any of his publications
which may cross the line. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1907.

* A Lady's Letter *
i-1 By  BABETTE. V
Dear Madge:
Here I am Xmas shopping in
Mexico! Of course you have never
shopped in Mexico or watched Mexican women shop, so I am going to
tell you my experiences. My friend
and I after steering ourselves safely
through the crowd, dodging automobiles and whirling cabs, emerged
triumphantly at the portal of one of
Mexico's large department stores.
The shop was crowded with a well
dressed, well behaved crowd, not at
all like a bargain rush at Xmas time
in Victoria. There were more people
than the clerks could attend to, and
we congratulated ourselves that we
could not get waited on at once.
I looked around me with interest.
Here were silks and embroidered
gowns, jewelled fans and costly laces.
There were swarms of customers
coming and going and waiting; elegantly gowned women, Mexicans,
Americans, French and German, all
ladies of high social standing and
stately bearing. Mingled here and
there among this cosmopolitan crowd
were picturesque looking "Peores,"
the men wearing broad brimmed and
gaily embroidered high pointed hats,
and the women with their heads and
shoulders draped in quaint "rebozas."
The clerks were polite and the conversation on all sides animated. But
somehow I did not feel at home. I
missed the fierce crush, the incessant
hurry of the clerks, and their vehement, earnest protestations that "It's
the very best silk and extremely
cheap at the price," when you knew
you had seen the same identical quality at another store for two cents
less, or was it two cents more? Anyhow, I felt lonesome and stole a look
at my friend, who by the way, was
a young American man of football
fame. I was just in time to see him
slip his football nose-guard into his
pocket. "Thought I might need it,"
he explained. Thought it might be
like doing our Xmas shopping in old
Chicago. It don't seem just right,"
he sighed wistfully, "I somehow miss
the old familiar call of 'cash.' Everything so quiet, and everyone so
casual," he explained. "You would
think—Hello! isn't she a dream," and
I left him busy while I turned to
Watch the crowd again.
My friend was right. There was
no hurry—no confusion, no rushing of
clerks or excited calls; everything
Was leisurely and quiet. The customer
entered—Broadcloth? Yes, he would
show Madam. What colour did she
desire? and the particular shade was
brought. But the quality was not just
what Madame wished. The quality
indicated, the clerk, courteous and
obliging, went to seek it. Yet it never
seemed to occur to him to exhibit for
her inspection the various colours
and qualities, that she might better
make her selection, and on her part
Madame never seemed to think that
necessary or desirable. If she wished
to see this it was brought. If she
was finally suited, well and good, if
not, it was immaterial to him. The
purchase made its -exact amount was
carefully figured up, the package
wrapped and delivered, courteous
adieus, exchanged and the clerk
shook hands with Madame and
bowed her out. Next he turned listlessly and regardless of waiting customers, proceeded to fold carefully
and slowly the various rolls of goods
which Madame had inspected, replaced them on the shelf, and turned
to the next in line.
"What next?" I asked, and my companion pointed to a store across the
street: "Looks like a pretty big place
over there," he said, and over we
went. At the first counter, I saw
the "dream" who had crossed from
the other shop, and his ready selection was explained. However, it was
a big place, much larger than the one
we had just left. As we entered I
noticed a long line of clerks standing behind the  counter,  directly  in

front of the main entrance. Very dignified, very erect, and very rigid they
were, every hair in place, everything
just so. Alert, attentive, waiting. I
left my friend making his purchase,
and strolled about. Then I noticed
a big brown car whirling around the
corner and stopping in front of the
store; the door swung open and a
lady stepped out. Tastily, daintily
gowned, hat that spoke of Paris, she
looked the aristocrat to the core, as
I knew she was after one look at
her clear-cut patrician face, a face
beautiful, full of dignity and strength,
a woman so typical in every respect
of the Mexican of. the higher classes.
Instantly every clerk was smiling and
attentive. Gracefully she bowed to
them all and then to the one whom
she favours with her custom, she extended a prettily gloved hand, and
with smiling courtesy wished him the
greetings of the day. Then ensued a
sprightly, animated conversation, on
various topics, touching every subject
perhaps, save the mission which
brought her there. With smiles and
graceful gestures the conversation
was punctuated, and the clerk held
his own. All through he stood graceful, erect anG smiling, agreeing with
easy grace to her every assertion, interested and considerate, he awaited
her pleasure. Finally, it occurred to
my lady that she wished some article,
and at this point we saw a vast difference in the attention here, and at
the shop we last visited. My lady
must be pleased and the clerk's energies in that direction were untiring.
Pile after pile of various things he
placed before her; if she but glanced
in the direction of some article, it
was in her hands, and the bargaining
went gaily on. Thus under a rapid
fire of sparkling conversation she
looked at this, examined that, priced
the one and made a pretty gesture
of dismay at the dearness of the
other. She was fully posted on prices
and knew quality and values, and
when she was satisfied, the price paid,
the good-byes said, my lady tripped
out to the waiting auto. There was
a sudden "honk," a swift blur of
brown and I knew that I had seen
the real thing when it comes to my
lady's Xmas shopping in Mexico.
In sharp contrast to this deliberate,
courteous, unruffled method of shopping of the women of Mexico, there
came to me a vision of a similar scene
in the United States, a scene with
different background and a setting of
different colours. A department store
in New York, where I once happened to shop at Xmas time. There
is the same rush and confusion in
the streets, the same dodging of
autos and cabs; there is the gasoline
smell and the jam at the stores, and
there is more. Get into the jam, follow the crowd and you find yourself
at last in the store. A policeman in
uniform or a detective in plain clothes
rescues you from the fighting mob;
you adjust your hat, take a shy look
in the glass, and follow your leader.

bought the selection made and madam
rises.   "Charge and send to No.

the mood of the reporter) to her

I don't know—but I believe I prefer the leisurely, languid shopping of
my lady in Mexico, in preference to
the hurry of her northern sister.
There is a grace about it that appeals
to one, a graceful pretty manner of
shopping that could be copied with
profit, and the very deference which
my lady receives from the waiting
clerks is evidence that courtesy in
shopping is an investment which pays,
is an unconscious tribute to a graceful custom.

To the Editor of The Week.
Sir,—I do not think that it was
the intention of "Rambler" to insult
Catholics in his "Notes on the Old
Land," published in your issue of
the 14th inst., and therefore recommend to all those that feel aggrieved
at his criticisms and statements to
act on the advice of St. Paul
(Ephesians 4: 32).
I am glad to know the object of
"Rambler's" visit to the Oratory, and
that his money (six cents) was well
spent in paying—not for his devotion,
but for his seat at the Carmelites
Chapel.
Paley and Jeremy Taylor in forming a theory of morals lay down a
maxim about the lawtuiness of lying
under certain circumstances stated by
them. "Rambler" may be a patron
of the rule of the Economy, by failing
to describe with particularity the
"modern costume, etc." The words
used are too indefinite to justify any
harsh  terms   being  applied  to   him.
Apparently his desire was to excite
the curiosity of the reader. It nevertheless is a fact that a great many
of the "enlightened ones" are tinder
the impression that Catholics are
taught, and do worship the Blessed
Virgin. Such is not the case; it is
a vulgar error—as already pointed
out in the able'letter of Mr. Llewel-
leyn-Wood, in your issue of the 19th
instant.
T submit that the criterion of worship is belief and intention. To give
therefore to His creatures the honour
due to God would be an act of idolatry. Catholics pray to God with
the belief and intention of worshipping. Theologians designate the worship due to God as cultus latriae. The
worship which is based on the finite
excellence of a creature, such as
given to the Blessed Virgin, and to
the Saints, is called honour or veneration, and not worship as in the
first mentioned sense. The form of
invocation to the Blessed Virgin and
the Saints is "Pray for Us" or "intercede for us," not "Have mercy on
us." I may also ask "Rambler" when
he again visits the Oratory or the
Carmelites Chapel to pray for us in
B. C. Allow me to refer to Boswell's
Life of Johnson.
Boswell—What do you think of the
Idolatry of the Mass?
Johnson—Sir, there is no idolatry.
They believe God to be there, and
adore Him.
Boswell—The invocation of Saints?
Johnson—They do not worship the
Saints; they invoke them; they only
ask their prayers.
I will quote the words of a famous
Anglican, and scholar, a convert to
Rome. "From a boy I have been
lead to consider that my Maker and
I, His creature, were the two beings, luminously such, in rerum na-
* tura. Only this I know full well now,
(a Catholic) and did not know then,
(Anglican), that the Catholic church
allows no image of any sort, material
or immaterial, no dogmatic symbol,
no rite, no sacrament, no Saint, nor
even the Blessed Virgin herself, to
come between the soul and its Creator. It is face to face "colus cum
solo," in all matters between man
and his God. He alone creates; He
alone has redeemed; before His awful
eyes we go in death; in the vision of
His is our eternal beatitude." Since
our Creator has conferred the greatest of all dignities on the second Eve
no praises of man should be considered excessive in honouring the
Queen of Heaven. All generations
shall call her Blessed.

Sporting
Comment.
As was expected the dueat of the
Victoria  Rugby team at Vancouver
has had a very bad effect on the followers of the game in this city and
the financial success of the Stanford-
Victoria match will  be  made much
harder than it would  have been if
the local players had won the match.
Although it was anticipated that the
local team would have a hard time
in the Terminal City it was hardly
expected that they would be snowed
under  as    they    were.    It    is    well
known that it was a very weak aggregation that made the trip, but even
at that it they should havc made a
better showing.    I have on several
occasions lately pointed out the depressing  effect   which   results   from
sending a  weak team  away to  play
the   strongest   aggregation   that   can
be got together by their opponents,
but nothing can be said that will show
more clearly the effect than the result of the game on Saturday.    It is
all  very well  for  thc  supporters  of
the game to render every assistance
in their power, but unless the players
themselves take some interest in the
game they might as well hand in their
clothes.   At the present time there is
not more than half of those who are
playing this season who care whether
the championship comes to Victoria or
not.   There  are  players  in  this  city
who are only too anxious to get out
and play    "at home,"    but when it
comes  to  travelling they  are  found
wanting.     The   majority   are   what
might bc  called fair weather sports
and  what  assistance  they  render  on
their own grounds is nothing compared to the effect that their abserice
has on the   team when away from
home.   It was not till six o'clock last
Friday evening that a full team was
secured to make the trip and at that
it included several players who are
not yet qualified to hold their places
in a good intermediate team, but it
is to their  credit that they did not
refuse to don their clothes in an attempt to uphold the honour of the
city which they call home.    If every
player in the city was imbued with
the same idea there would be such
football played as has never before
been seen in this city.   The result of
the   game  on   Saturday  last   shows
plainly that many changes will have
to be made before the team lines up
against Stanford, otherwise the score
in that game will be decidedly worse
than it was at Vancouver.   This afternoon   the   local   combination  will
meet a team known as the misfits, but
unless the players who now compose
thc senior organization make a better
showing than they have this season,
it   will   be   in   order   to   reverse   the
names.   This suggestion is not made
as a jo"ke but in dead earnest and if
the old timers are successful in lowering the colors of the senior combination it should be in order for them
to uphold   the   honour   of   the city
against Stanford.    There is still time
for the local team to be rounded into
shape to meet the players from the
South and after the miserable showing that was made  in Vancouver  it
should be held every evening with a
practice at scrimmage, formation afterwards   in  the  J.B.A.A.  club,   but
nothing has been done to follow up
these  good resolutions.    On Sunday
last the Vancouver team took a fifteen-mile walk, this on top of their
victory over Victoria shows that the
Terminal city players are out to win,
but it appears as if the local exponents are contented to remain at the
bottom, and unless a decided change
is made before January 4th it is a
certainty that they will remain there
for the remainder of this season. It
is hoped that the players one and
all will see that something must be
done to hold the interest of the game
in this city and use every effort to
bring the team out on top.
The deciding games in the Victoria
District League will be played this
afternoon and considerable interest is
being taken in the results. The
James Bay team is still at the head
of the list with every prospect of
winning, but still there is a chance
that they might be tied for first
honours but to do this they must
lose both fixtures. A tie in either of
the games will give them the championship and it is almost certain that
they will at least make a draw of
one. The Bays have made a fine entry into Association football, this being the first season that the club
has been represented. The team is
composed with one or two exceptions
of players who have this season graduated from the intermediate ranks
and that they have been able to win
from the older exponents is greatly
to their credit. So far they have gone
through the schedule without a defeat, in what has been a very heavy
schedule and that they have been able
to maintain their place at the top of
the league is something that not only
the players themselves should be
proud of but also the other members
of the club, but unfortunately they
do not get the support from the club
which they deserve.    It is only nat
ural that the other clubs should make
extra efforts to down the leaders, but
the methods that have been adopted
by some of the teams is not exactly
what might be called good sport.
Good keen rivalry in down the leaders
is all very well and the under teams
generally have the support of the
spectators, but when the teams commence to allow their desire to win
get the better of them and start, not
only from other clubs, but from other
cities it is hardly a square deal, but
it reflects more credit on the Bays
in so far being able to hold their own
against any combination that has been
secured to try and have the honour of
being the first team to defeat thc
leaders. Considerable credit of the
victories of the Bays is due to Manager Duncan who has been very active is getting his team in shape. If
Victoria possessed more of this style
of sports the game would be far more
interesting than what it is.

I cannot help feeling gratified at
j the attention attracted by my last
(week's letter on the subject of labour
fl) conditions at Hatley Park, but I am
[still more gratified that the owner has
*seen fit to raise the scale of pay from
($1-75 to $2 per day, and according to
[the member for Esquimalt, has stated
in effect that he was not aware of the
I conditions and that Oriental labour
I would be dispensed with in favour of
[white. He had left these matters entirely to the overseer Gladding who
apparently had been attempting a
little "Nigger driving" on his own ac-
|count. The fact that this redress was
I secured within two days of the ap-
Ipearance of my article in The Week
[is probably only another of those in-
Istances which human experience
laffords of remarkable coincidences,
llutt quite sufficient to have satisfied
[some journals, which shall be name-
Jess, that the credit was due to them*
Iselves.
Being an. old athlete I should be
ivery much obliged to anyone who
[could tell me what is the matter with
[Victoria sport. There is a screw loose
■somewhere, and I only wish I could
(do anything to aid in its discovery.^
(Victoria is the home of sport in
^British Columbia, and the achieve-
l.nents of the J. B. A. A. are among
Its most priceless records. Any man
plight well be proud to belong to a
city with such an athletic past, and
■yet today if the truth must be told,
land it is folly to hide it, sport is
lalmost dead in the Capital city. Let
[me prove my statement.
In the first place the public will not
attend matches; I do not care which
branch you take, the result is the
same. I suppose I have been present
at twenty football matches this season, some of them good, a few excellent; I am certain that on no
occasion has the attendance of the
public reached four hundred. In Vancouver I have seen two thousand
people present at a football match.
Baseball and lacrosse are dead, hockey brings out at the most two Hundred spectators. Basketball, which
only a few years ago used to fill the
Drill Hall, is lucky if it draws three
hundred people, and yet the latter
game at any rate was never so well
played in its history. Cricketis said
to be looking up, and I think it is
so far as the interest of the players
and the press is concerned, but even
here one cannot be gratified at an attendance which last summer never exceeded four hundred, and whicli was
obviously more social than sporting
in its aspect.
It is not so long since there was
a boating and a yachting club in Victoria, no one ever hears of either
now, and but for the club races of the
J.B.A.A. our splendid nautical advantages would bc ignored entirely.
It is not so in Vancouver which is
rapidly forging ahead and building up
splendid teams in every department
of sport. It is not so in other smaller
cities of the Province, and I make
bold to say that Victoria is the only
place which shows this: decadence.
I revert to my question, why is it?
And I am unable to suggest an adequate reply. It is not altogether, although it may be in part, due to the
fact that the quality of the sport is
not of the highest, but that is not a
sufficient explanation because a man
with sporting blood in him must and
will have athletics, if not the best,
then the best he can get.
I wonder if the citizens of Victoria
ever think of the commercial value
of athletics, ancl this is putting it on
the lowest ground. Victoria is the
only city I know which has not discovered that is it one of the most
valuable assets, and tends not only to
attract people, but to hold them. I
am certain that if Victoria is to develop, as everyone hopes, along the
lines of a residential city, it will have
to regain its lost reputation as the
leader of athletics.
All the fault does not rest with thc
public, and I want to say a word in
conclusion to the players. They probably will not thank me, and may
even feel aggrieved, but I have no
other object than to advance the true
interests of sport.
Perhaps the lesson I would convey
may well be gathered from the following questions. Why did not .1
fuller representative team go over to
Vancouver on Saturday last to engage
in one of the most important Rugby
games of the season? The success of
the Stanford match here depended entirely upon thc showing of the Victoria team in Vancouver. Now what
can we reasonably expect in the way
of a gate?
Why did some of the players who
would be offended if their amateur
standing were called in question positively refuse to go at the last moment unless their expenses wcre paid?
There was not a man on the team
who could not afford $5. And when
amateurs show by their conduct that
they think so little of thc game, what
can they expect from thc public?
Why could neither the Victoria or
J.B.A.A. teams turn out in full
strength for the advertised match on
Christmas morning? Are they in such
good fettle that they can afford to
forego even one practice match in
view of the Stanford visit? I am
credibly informed that the Vancouver
Rugby team have taken a fifteen-mile
run every day this week to get ready
for their big matches. Can anyone
inform me when either of the Victoria
teams, Rugby or Soccer, ran a mile
for training.
I have come to the conclusion
that whatever else may be necessary
to revive the public interest in sport,
the first and most necessary thing is
for the players themselves to show
that they are in the game because
they love it, and that they are willing to train and train hard in order
that they may not disgrace thc record
of their city as they have been doing
lately.

The management must bc congratulated upon the very clever and attractive programme that they have
furnished the patrons of the house
this week. It is nne of the best all
round bills that has been seen for
some time, Every act is a feature
one and has given general satisfaction. Davis & Walker, the coloured
team, are a bright pair of entertainers,
their comedy being clean and up-to-
date; thc lady possesses a voice much
above the average and as a vocalist
displays more than ordinary ability;
the male member is a good comedian and does some eccentric dancing which makes a big hit. They
have been very popular at all performances. The act of the Flood Sisters is a very novel one, their rolling
globe and unsupported ladder feats
are cleverly performed. Murray Simon, the Hebrew comedian, plainly
speaking, "is all right." His dialect
is good and his songs, stories and
Jewish dance is funny and takes well.
Baby Patsey is a cute and clever little
performer and wins the hearts quickly
of all present. We have never as yet
seen one so young whose dancing is
so perfect. Coleman & Mexis, in
their trick and fancy shooting ,are
really marvelous, all their work being
done gracefully aud accurately. Miss
Crawford's song, "The best Thing in
Life," is sung very acceptably and the
illustrations are very pretty. The
Pantagescope motion picture, "College Chums," is an amusing one, and
concludes an entertainment that is
certainly tip-to-date in every particular. Another good company has been
booked for next week.

Only a Chink.
Chung On was a Chinaman, I suppose still is, for he has simply changed
his place of abode; perhaps I should
say, condition, for who knows anything definite about the Confucian
heaven? Anyhow in Occidental
phraseology Chung On has crossed
the Great Divide.
I think 1 should make it clear at
this point that Chung On was not
his real name at all, but that his interesting entity is more correctly described by a series of hieroglyphics
undecipherable by any but the
Oriental.
Chung On six short months ago
was a happy, careless child of the
Celestial Empire, passing a time of
idyllic indolence on the banks of the
Yang-tse-Kiang.
In an evil moment One Lung returned from across the seas with
much gold, and told of the land of
promise where John Chinaman could
earn more in a day than he could
acquire in his own land in a month.
The vision dazzled the eyes of Chung
On, and two weeks later he was drifting through the streets of Hong Kong
seeking service or the chance of deportation to the eastern slopes of the
Pacific.
ln another evil moment (horrible
thought, perhaps after all the defunct
Chung On was not a good Chinaman
or he would not have had so many
evil moments and have been the prey
of Chinese demons) hc fell into the
hands of an agent of the Canadian
Mexican Steamship Line, and with
some thirty others was hired as a seaman.
Early in November he found himself discharging the important but
onerous duties of his calling on board
the S.S. "Lonsdale" sailing from Salina Cruz en route for Victoria.
Now Chung On was not acclimatized to tropical heat, and the no deg.
of temperature which prevailed at the
Mexican port proved too strenuous
for his constitution, in consequence
of which he developed that dread disease epilepsy and was the subject of
several seizures between the time of
leaving Salina Cruz and reaching Ma-
zatlan.
So serious was his condition that
at the latter port a consultation was
held   and  the   Captain   proposed  to.
leave him in the marine hospital of
that city for medical treatment. In
the light of subsequent events it is
a pity that the Captain did not insist on doing what he considered best,
but the other Chinamen on board objected so strongly, and Chung On
was so unwilling that the Captain allowed himself to be over-persuaded,
and Chung On was carried to Victoria
where he arrived early in December.
In order to make my story quite
clear it is necessary at this point to
remind my readers of.the system under which Canadian steamship companies employ Orientals. Each man
is hired under a two years' contract.
At the end of that time he has to be
returned to Hong Kong. As a guarantee that he wil! not become a resident in Canada the steamship company puts up a deposit of $500, the
amount of the head tax. If the man
is returned at the end of the term,
in accordance with the contract, the
deposit is refunded. If he escapes
and is not returned, the deposit becomes forfeit.
When the Lonsdale reached Victoria, Chung On, although not immediately suffering from an epileptic
seizure, was deemed to be a suitable
person to be placed in the marine
hospital as a patient. As a matter of
fact he had been the subject of numerous seizures between Mazatlan
and Victoria and the veriest tyro in
such matters knows that epileptic fits
are not got rid of in a moment, and
that they require the most skilful
treatment.
I hope my readers will not find this
story long, or uninteresting, but all
that has gone before is merely preliminary, and at this point the part
of the story which chiefly interests
Victorians begins.
The marine hospital at Victoria is
in charge of a Mr. Unwin, acting under the medical advice of Dr. Gibbs.
The unfortunate Chung On spent
about four days in this Institution,
during which time he had several epileptic seizures. It is alleged, probably
with truth, that he was not a very
docile patient, and Mr. Unwin states
that he made at least one attempt to
escape. This might easily be the case
as patients of this character have intervals of sanity and some approach
to a normal condition.
At his request the steamship company through their local agent, Mr.
Greer, detailed two men to watch the
patient. Meanwhile Mr. Unwin seems
to have become anvious lest Chung
On should escape, and obviously Mr.
Greer shared his anxiety, for instead
of continuing to watch the man and
give whatever attention was necessary, he made an application to the
Chief of Police to have him removed
to the cells until the departure of
the next Mexican boat.
The Chief of Police very properly
refused to comply with such a request
except on the certified authority of
Dr. Milne the Dominion emigration
officer, and Dr. Gibbs, the medical officer of the marine hospital.
Mr. Greer seems to have had no
difficulty in procuring the necessary
authority. Indeed Dr. Gibbs so far
failed to appreciate the gravity of the
case and the true condition of the
poor Chinaman that he declared it to
be a case of shamming, and said he
doubted whether there was really anything the matter.
Just how Dr. Gibbs could arrive at
this conclusion when it was known
that the man had suffered from a
series of fits during the voyage may
be clear to the complex mind of a
medical expert, but is not easily understood by a layman.
As Dr. Milne appears to have acted
on the medical advice of Dr. Gibbs,
who was responsible for the conduct
of the marine hospital, possibly his
personal responsibility in the matter
is not very great. Be that as it may,
Chung On was removed to the cells,
and the Mexican steamship company
relieved from any further anxiety
about the head tax, and any further
expense in watching a refractory
patient.
How little any of these men really
knew or cared about the case was
very quickly demonstrated. In a few
days the Chief of Police had to send
for Dr. Gibbs and inform him that
poor Chung On was not merely not
shamming, but had had several severe
fits in the cells, and he was afraid the
man world die.
Even at this stage Dr. Gibbs
proved himself a veritable "doubting
Thomas," for he examined the man
and still declared that he could find
nothing the matter with him. But
hardly had the words passed his lips
than Chung On heeled over in a
severe seizure which even the Doctor
had to admit was genuine.
The Chief of Police now declined
the responsibility of the further custody of the sufferer, and reiterated
his opinion that he would die. He
declared that the cells were no place
for such a case, and that the man
should be taken back to the hospital
Dr. Gibbs promised that this should
be done tomorrow; but for Chung On
tomorrow never came. One more
rigor attacked him during the night
watches in the solitude of his cell
There was no nurse and no doctor to
straighten his contracted limbs, or to
relieve the pressure from his bursting brain, and the rigor became "rigor
mortis."
Of course an inquest was held, and
equally of course a clot of blood was
discovered, during the post mortem,
at the base of the brain.
I suppose Chung On was accorded
"Christian burial" although nothing
was said about it in the press reports,
but then what can one expect? There
are four hundred million Chung Ons
in Flowery Land and one will never
be missed except by the little wife,
and her tiny tots on the banks of the
Yang-tse-Kiang.
One man in Victoria was actually
bold enough to write a letter to the
papers commenting on the treatment
accorded to this "heathen Chinee," in
a Christian city. Some of us honour
Admiral Fleet for his humanity.
On Christmas morning the Church
bells were ringing and hundreds
wended their way to Christmas service. They listened to the "old, old
story" which will ever be new, and
to exhortations to cultivate the Christmas spirit, and the charity "that cov-
ereth a multitude of sins"; but in all
those Christian churches not one
word of sympathy was spoken for
Chung On, nor one word of reproach
for the treatment he received.
In a little while the hat will be going round for collections to send missionaries to China, but we shall not
be told that Chung On was allowed
to die in our police cells without
medical attendance, nor shall we be
told that when the Boxer riots resulted in a massacre of missionaries
and converts, the life of many a white
man and woman was saved by the
fidelity of their Chinese servants; but
after all Chung On was only a Chink.

1906.
"-and why? why should each succeeding year's
business show such an enormous increase? why the

Eyes, Feet, Hands and Voices That
Are Worth Fortunes.   You can
Insure    Everything   Except
Your Heart.
Genius, like the silver soup ladle
and the family coffee pot, may be
insured. If you are lucky enough to
be a wonderful pianist, you can estimate your little finger at a big figure,
and get good money when you are
unable to dally with the ivory white
keys. Suppose you are a dancer, and
some rude, cumbersome, galloping
creature steps on your toe, simply sit
down and fold your hands and think
of the things that will be bought by
the big check that the insurance company is so delighted to make out in
your name.
Among the curiosities In insurance
policies are those issued to great
artists, who pay immense premiums
to insure against accident to hands,
eyes, feet and throats. Kubelik's
right hand is insured for $50,000,
ancl for this he pays a premium of
$1,500 a year. If Kubelik's hand were
to be disabled, there is no telling
what Kubelik might suffer, he being
unqualified for the ordinary job of
bill collector or any lesser role than
that which he now occupies. His
policy also reads to the effect that
if an accident to his hand prevents
him from fulfilling an engagement, he
will receive $10,000, and if he loses
his hand entirely, he shall receive
the full $50,000. Compare that, however, with the fact that Kubelik earns
from $80,000 to $120,000 a year and
you will see that $50,000 is a mere
bagatelle to what the great artist
would lose if his hand should be entirely severed. Seriously it is a question that can only be considered in a
most lengthy manner.
Paderewski's beautiful tapering fingers are also insured, but for a mere
$45,000, but Paderewski earns more
than Kubelik, although each stands
at the head of his class among the
violinists and pianists of the world.
Paderewski, however, is an older man
and better established in the world's
goods, has a beautiful home, and
many bonded interests. Kubelik is a
young man, is equally endowed with
family and home, but in all probability his bank account is much less
than that of Padereswki.
Hence these insurance policies, all,
however, carried in American companies, show that American enterprise
has entered into all the marts of the
world, and in this instance, has come
out victorious.
Louise Homer and Madame Gadski
vie with each other in their valuation
of their lovely white throats, which
hold an insurance policy of $50,000
each. At the slightest cough, they
see themselves possessed of even
more wealth than these wealthy ladies
now own.
It is a safe guess that if these
singers are like other women, they
spend that insurance money many
times before they get it. A touch
of tonsilitis, and they cry, "I am losing my voice! The $50,000, it will
soon be mine! I shall buy another
yard of diamonds, and enough pearls
to use for a clothes line!" and there
goes her insurance money again.
These are strange policies, but it
all goes to show that genius is fre
quently an excellent business partner,
and a deep lott. Talent is not all
emotion. No indeed, and so the great
artists of the day have thus discovered it.
Primrose Minstrels.
The Primrose Minstrels gave their
evergreen show at the Victoria
Theatre on Monday night. It was
as good, as clean and as up to date
as ever, and this is saying a great
deal for a show that has been on the
road for thirty years under the same
management.
That best of all American plays
dealing with graft-financial, political
and social, "The Lion and the Mouse"
is coming to the Victoria theatre
Monday, December ,30. Since the remarkable work of Charles Klein was
lirst seen here, many things have occurred which makes the return of the
drama a matter of psychological interest, in view of the numerous cases
against the trusts and captains of industry, which are now before the
courts. Five years ago "The Lion
and the Mouse" would have been a
failure, for the simple reason that the
public did not ask "where did he get
it?" but rather "how much is he
worth?"
When the play was first produced
the insurance scandals wcre just
reaching the public nostrils, then came
the action against ihe trusts ami the
railroads and the public at large discovered that the so-called leaders in
high finance were a little short of
pirates.
The story of "Thc Lion and the
Mouse" is briefly this: John Burkett
Ryder, thc richest man in the world,
who controls thc government, suddenly finds that his gigantic schemes
are blocked by the decisions of a
federal jurist, Judge Rossmore. Ryder
swears to ruin him, and does financially, besides making arrangements
to have him impeached in the senate.
The judge's daughter, Shirley Ross-
more, and Ryder's boy, Jefferson,
meet while on a trip abroad, fall in
love and return engaged. The girl,
learning of her father's impending
dishonour, determines to save his
good name. She writes a book, scoring Ryder, his ilk and their methods,
which   creates   a   sensation.
Ryder sends for her, and is so captivated by her wit, and womanliness
that he engages her to write his autobiography, making her a member of
his household. Of course discovery
is certain, and in a tremendous scene
between these two, the lion and the
mouse, thc girl leaves the house.
This season Henry B. Harris is
sending to thc west a remarkable cast
to present the piece, headed by Miss
Dorothy Donnelly and Paul Everton.
history treated its patrons to a liner
entertainment.
For New Year's week another all-
star programme will bc headed by
the St. Onge Bros., in a remarkable
trick and comedy bicycle act, and

with the great instrumentalists of the
world. Other numbers arc: Miss
Nan Ryan and Compauy, of six boys
and girls, in a melange of music and
dancing, which is a pot-pourri of all
that is latest and best on Broadway;
Dan Gracey and Ada B. Burnett in
their laughable skit "Rehearsal," introducing good singing, eccentric dancing and up-to-date comedy; Richard
Harding, black-face monologist; Thos.
J. Price in a new illustrated song;
good Moving Pictures, ancl a new
Overture bv the orchestra.
New Grand.
The entertainment at the New
Grand this week is a surprise even
to those who expected that Manager
Jamieson would put up something
quite out of thc ordinary for Christmas. The Arabijcroupe are unique
in every respef-.t and undoubtedly
give one of the very best acrobat
turns now before the public. They
arc whirlwind performers ancl skilful
in every department of their work.
This turn in itself is well wort the
cost of the whole entertainment. The
Rosaires' slack wire act is a thriller,
and Gray and Graham with their
novel comedy-musical act score a
success. On the whole it is doubtful
if the  New Grand has  in  its  whole
The Whole Truth.
There was never any doubt that a
person who asked Mary Anne Potter
a question would get a truthful answer, no matter how trying it might
be to Mary Anne to give it. She was
even known on occasions to give information unrequired and unflattering to herself, says the Youth's Companion.
One such occasion arose when, after Miss Potter's six months' sojourn with a western cousin, a thrifty
widower secured her for his bride,
and accompanied her to a justice of
the peace to be married.
"This is your first marriage?" inquired the justice, as if in duty
bound.
A high color flamed on Mary Anne's
check bones, but she gazed unflinchingly at her questioner.
"Yes, sir; it's my first chance," she
said grimly. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1907.

THE BANK Of VANCOUVER
(TO BE INCORPORATED BY AOT OF PARLIAMENT OF CANADA.   CHARTER APPLIED FOR)
This proposed bank is being organized and will have its Head Office in Vancouver with its directors chosen by the subscribers to
its stock at the organization meeting.
The Western Provinces and British Columbia in particular have for some considerable time felt the urgent need of an institution
such as the proposed Bank of Vancouver. The formation of new industries and the developing of those already established, has been
seriously retarded for want of ordinary financial accommodation, and the primary object of this new bank will bc to alleviate the situation
by largely confining its operations to the splendid field awaiting it in tlie Pacific Coast Provinces, and more especially in British
Columbia.
The bank proposes to do business on the safe and well-laid-down lines of the old established banks, and will earn their respect and
goodwill by a continuation of this policy.
The Bank of Montreal has its head office in Montreal.
The Bank of Toronto has its head office in Toronto.
The Bunk of Ottawa has its head office in Ottawa.
The Bank of Hamilton has its head office in Hamilton.
The standing of these banks is beyond question.

The Bank of Toronto        100.00
The Bank of Ottawa        100.00

The above banks, while doing a general banking business throughout the Dominion, each aims at fostering and developing business
and trade, SPECIALLY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE CITIES AND DISTRICTS.
THE BANK OF VANCOUVER will aim to do the same, that is, to encourage and promote legitimate business in BRITISH
COLUMBIA PARTICULARLY.
The Capital asked for is $2,000,000.00 in 20,000 shaves of $100.00 each. The first $500,000.00 of stock is offered the public
at a premium of 10 per cent, that is, at $110.00 per share.
Payments can be made in full or on the instalment plan. Interest will be allowed at 3 per cent, per annum upon the par value
of the stock until organization.
The provisional directors, when appointed, will reserve the right to increase the premium upon the remainder of the stock, also
to allot or reject any subscription in whole or in part.
