THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
When an undue and 1111-
tn Injudicious    reasonable  precipitency is
ction- shown by a public body iu
making changes of a dras-
c nature in the affairs of the department
ider tlieir control, the public generally
insiders that it has good ground to ask
ich a public body "to show cause." This
vplies most emphatically to the action of
e Victoria Board of School Trustees in
f'oposing to do away with the office of a
male principal  for the Girls'  Central
chool, and place both schools under the
ntrol of a single principal, ancl that prin-
pal of the male sex.    Comment on the
ition thus contemplated by the Trustees
-or rather by a section of them, for the
ition was carried through in the absence
:' two members—is already very wide-
iread and of a most adverse character,
id, if the Trustees are well advised, they
ill lose no time in reconsidering a course
action for which there is apparently no
liason.   There are at least three principal
•ounds on which the School Trustees'
uirse is undoubtedly open to condemna-
011.   The first is that the proposed change
tddles tlie long-suffering taxpayer with
ie cost of an additional salaried position
pr the proposed new principal of $1,800,
if the educational burdens due to our
J_creasing juvenile population Avere not
ready enough.    The second ground of
jndemnation is that the proposed change
as passed by those three of the School
rustees who are the very least experi-
lcfd members of that body.   Such radical
langes of policy and management should
ever be instituted without either the full
incurrence of the Board or an overwhelm-
>g majority with all members present.
I'he third ground for condemnation is the
sceeding inadvisability of removing an
sperienced and capable servant from the
uitrol of a position which that servant
as handled satisfactorily for years.   This
mrse should never be adopted"without a
lost important ground for so doing, aud
lose grounds known and agreed upon by
ie entire Board.    There are other reams that might conceivably be advanced
gainst the present proposed action of the
School Trustees, but the above three may
taken as the most important.    To the
linds  of  most  reasonable  people  they
I'ould appear to be amply sufficient for
ublic opinion to insist upon a reconsider-
tion of the whole matter in the presence
f the entire Board.    The situation as it
tands is most peculiar.    There does not
ppear to have been any complaint from
nybody, parent, pupil, or teacher with re-
;ard to the previously existing conditions,
shere is no question of economy involved,
or, as shown above, the proposed change
aeans a   heavy   additional   expenditure.
Vnd, most peculiar  feature of all,  the
Misiness is rushed through in a great hurry

ellow members and in the face of urgent
irotests for further and serious consider-
.tion voiced by such experienced members
is Trustee Mrs. Jenkins, and by Chairman
lay.   And, moreover, this very important
tep is forced through in a minute's notice
>y the three Trustees who have least ex-
)crience in educational matters.    It is a
subject of common knowledge that the

tactically  unanimous  approval  on  the
.art of all parents, and has been one of

ies afforded young girls.   The Week has
10 hesitation in placing itself on record
is strongly of opinion that the control
if a girls' school should always be in the
iands of a woman.   There are many rea
sons for this, and they are perfectly well
known to all men and women who have
studied educational problems. The people
of Victoria will no doubt insist upon having ful] consideration paid to their views
in this matter, and therefore for the ] ire-
sent no more need be said. It may be
remarked, however, that, while The AVeek
is not, in discussing this matter, swayed
in any way by certain rumours going
round town with reference to the cause of
the action of the three Trustees—rumours
coupled with a citizen whom one of our
daily contemporaries has already named
—this journal does not hesitate to say
plainly that the action of the School Trustees in this matter has shown a strange and
undue precipitancy, and a lack of reasonable cause, quite sufficient to give these
rumours ground for starting, and the
Trustees will find that their action will
take a great deal of explaining. We shall
expect to have to refer again to this matter, and can only trust that it will not be
necessary to do so in much harsher
language.
the City's phoenomcnal development during the past three years, and both the business men of the City and the Provincial
Government are to be warmly congratulated upon a course of action whicli will
have such beneficial and far-reaching
effects upon Victoria and V ancouver
Island generally.
fine weather, and that is something the
Fair week in Victoria is usually favoured
with, the coming exhibition should break
ali records.
Among topics of public in-
The Mill terest in Victoria during the
Bay Road.        past week the letting of the
contract for the middle section of the Mill Bay Road has occupied a
prominent place, as the results of that
work, when complctedj will be of a nature
which present conditions in Victoria have
placed the popular mind in a position to
easily appreciate. The Mill Bay Road
opens up a large section of country directly tributary to Victoria, and for the
most part of a very productive character,
and the growth of the district affected as
well as its usefulness to Victoria, lias been
seriously hampered in the past by lack of
proper road communication. As the public are aware, the construction of the road
is the direct outcome of a promise made
by the Provincial Government to the Victoria Board of Trade ancl a number of prominent citizens, who, being well aware of
the industrial and commercial value of
this undertaking to the City of Victoria,
made urgent representations on the subject to Premier McBride and his colleagues. These latter gentlemen showed a
ready appreciation of the important interests involved, and at once made arrangements to meet the wishes of the people of
Victoria as voiced by their representative
merchants and manufacturers. The results to Victoria are likely to be very far-
reaching. The product and commerce of
a wide tract of country lying right at the
City's door will have easy access to the
principal markets, and the resulting interchange of commodities ancl products, together with the largely increased demands
caused by the development of the new district, will mean an increase to Victoria of
population, commerce, and manufacture.
No town has ever grown great by being
merely a town, its greatness or otherwise
depends entirely upon the size, character
ancl accessibility of the districts tributary
to it and for whose supplies it forms the
distributing point. Victoria has never
lacked a good and valuable country at the
back of it, but her growth has hitherto
been much hindered by the lack of means
of easy access to that country, the consequence being that both district and City
were losers—the one for lack of development, owing to difficulty of access, ancl the
other through the loss of all that trade
and manufacture which would have resulted from the district's settlement. Considered as a commercial undertaking, the
Mill Bay Road comes, in point of value
next, to the two lines of railway running
out of Victoria. It represents an asset of
incalculable value, especially in view of
Business
Methods.
Nothing that the McBride
Government can do is any
good in the eyes of the Victoria Times.   The latest instance illustrating this fact occurred on
Thursday night, when onr contemporary
referred with some bitterness to tlie fact
that the Provincial Government had settled
the Lampson Street School matter by an
arrangement through which the contractor
has to pay all the expense the public has
been put to through his curious misconception of what constitute safe and proper methods of putting up a building. The
Times allows its prejudices to deprive it
of its common sense.   Had the contractor
heen brought into Court and prosecuted,
there would have been a. long and costly
suit, possibly not even a successful one,
expensive fees to experts, expensive fees
to lawyers, ancl the whole bill coming out
of the pockets of the people, in addition to
the heavy loss they have already sustained.
The Government, through the present arrangement, saves the taxpayer all this unnecessary expense, gets the new work done
for nothing, and, best of all, has put in
working order a new and most excellent
method for controlling public contractors
iu future.    There is no money in jerry-
building, if you have to eld.your work all
over again for nothing, arid the average
contractor has his head screwed on quite
level enough to see that;   The methods of
the McBride Government, since they assumed the reins of office, have been characterised by business ability and common
sense, but they have seldom given a better
illustration of these two qualities—so deplorably rare in most of our Government
bodies—than in the present instance.   Of
course, they do things differently in* Ottawa, which doubtless explains the irritation of the Times.   Over in the Dominion
Capital, the bond that united the Siamese
Twins was but a cobweb compared witli
the close ancl intimate relationships which
exist between Government contractor, private Member, ancl Cabinet Minister.   By
the way, it is an unhappy coincidence for
the Times that its spiteful sneer at the
Provincial Government's method of handling public contractors should have appeared   in print on  the very  day  that
brought the news of the remarks of Sir
Charles Rivers-AVilson in Montreal concerning the calamitous bungling of the
Dominion Government contractors on that
section   of   the   transcontinental   running
East from Winnipeg. Since the Times dislikes the example set by the Provincial
Government,   will  it kindly  inform   an
anxious   public  what   steps  the   Ottawa
authorities will take to remedy the affairs
of whieh  the  President   of   the Grand
Trunk complains?

The business men of Vic-
Insurance Rates toria are at the present
In Victoria. moment anxiously await
ing the answer from the
head offices of the insurance companies doing business here to the recommendation,
forwarded recently by the Vancouver
Island Board of Fire Underwriters, recommending a substantial reduction in existing rates. This recommendation was
made in pursuance of a promise that, as
soon as an adequate and up-to-date system of fire protection had been established
in Victoria, reduced rates would at once
follow. .Matters tending to an improvement in this respect have moved very
quickly during tlie past few months, and
A'ictoria has now a thoroughly efficient fire
department, organized in accordance with
tlie most up-to-date methods of drill and
discipline by Fire Chief Davis, together
with modern apparatus, additional engine
equipment, the installation of a salt water
high pressure system, and a inarked improvement in the pressure of the local
fresh wafer supply. Taking all these
things into consideration, it is felt by the
business men of A'ictoria tliat a very considerable reduction in existing rates is now
fully warranted, and in this view, it is
to be remarked, local insurance men fully
concur. The rapid development in building which has been taking place throughout A'ictoria during the past couple of
years, and wliieh, during the present season, has reached an extent and activity beyond all previous records, renders the
question of fire insurance rates a matter
of great importance as affecting the city's
future development. I.t is granted by
competent observers tliat A'ictoria has done
her part towards becoming entitled to this
reduction, and a reply from the head
office! of the fire insurance companies will,
il. is confidently expected, endorse that
view.
AA'hcn Mr. Collingwood
The Little Schreiber was in the AVest
Cloud. about a month ago he re
marked that the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway could not be completed within the prescribed period unless
permission was given for the employment
of Oriental Labour. Commenting on this,
at the time, The Week expressed the
opinion that the Chief Engineer of the
Dominion Government was "Hying a kite,"
and that his suggestion would later on take
more tangible form in a direct application
to the Government. The prediction is
likely to prove, true, for a late dispatch
from Ottawa stales that Sir Charles Rivers
Wilson and Mr. C. M Hays are to interview Sir AVilfrid Laurier for the purpose
of securing his consent to the employment
of Mongolian labour. The same dispatch
quotes Mr. Schreiber as saying that the
railway will not be completed for many
years unless such permission is given. The
situation is a perilous one, the people of
British Columbia have with practical
unanimity decided against a Mongolian-
built railway. The Provincial Government is pledged to resist it to the utmost;
it is not long since the Liberal Press was
trying to convince the people of this Province that Codlin was their friend, not
Short; now it looks as if the boot is on the
other leg and the next move \\\V. be very
closely watched. In any event tliere will
be no receding on the part of the people
of British Columbia or the Provincial
Government. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1909

By THE LOUNGER
Circumstances have compelled me
to do all my lounging this week in
Vancouver and there are just a few
features of life there upon which i
wish to comment.
First of all, let us take another run
out to the Minoru race track. It is
well worth it, for a more instructive
sight in connection with races 1 never
saw. On the first day of the meeting a month ago there were 6,000
people there, including all the leading society people of Vancouver.
Everybody was intent on enjoying
themselves and on helping to make
the meet a success. On Wednesday
1 estimated the attendance at 600. of
whom at least 400 were professional
betting men, touts, and officials. Two
hundred is a liberal estimate for the
general public who have no business
there except for sightseeing.
In the next place I was very much
amused at the farcical attempt at
compliance with the law with respect
to betting. I had read in the papers
that the police had closed down on
open betting, and that al] the boxes
had been removed. The latter part
of the statement is true, for they arc
piled up in an unsightly heap in a
nearby field, but betting was as brisk
as ever, only far more strenuous and
wearying, for the unfortunate bookie,
and this is how it was done: There
were fifteen posts, say eight feet
high, nailed on each a board, just a
little larger than an ordinary sign
board, on this were written the names
of the horses ancl the odds offered;
one unfortunate man carried the post
another did the chalking, another car
ried the tickets, a fourth made the
entries in the book, and a fifth acted
as general assistant.
After each race the fifteen pest
bearers receded to the very back of
the large space underneath thc grandstand and in semi-obscurity commenced to conduct the betting on the
next race. About every two minutes,
at a given signal, the post was carried forward, say three feet, and this
was repeated until by the time thc
next race was due the post had been
advanced to the outer edge of the
grandstand, and the people pushed to
the outside? During the race the
post bearers retreated once more-t
ready to renew the operation. Anything more ridiculous 1 never saw.
It certainly is a technical compliance
with the law in that the poor betting
man has no fixed place, but he certainly has my sympathy for he is
chivied on, literally from pillar to
post, and has not a moment's rest,
whilst the process of betting goes on
exactly thc same as if the boxes were
there. The only effect of the police
regulations is to inconvenience the
bookie and that is not a very sublime
achievement. The most farcical aspect of the case is that when the raid
is over all bets are paid at fixed counters, where the name of the bookie
or the club is nailed up, but the mere
fact that the bet is not made tliere is
supposed to legalize the operation.
All 1 have to say is that it was a
sorry spectacle, and one calculated to
bring all law into disrepute.
And now one word about the races.
I do not hesitate to say that the so-
called Thoroughbred Association has
killed racing in British Columbia. On
this there is no difference of opinion,
not even among the followers of the
sport. It is admitted that all the
worst features of the American race
tracks have been introduced at Minoru
Park, and bookies who have followed
the game all their lives said that it
was the most crooked meeting they
have ever attended. Anyone can tell
this by simply following the newspaper reports and noticing the in and
out running of the horses. Only this
week two horses which have never
won a race before either in Victoria
or Vancouver went to the front, won
out and in each case established a
record. They could have undoubtedly
have done this long ago but have heen
deliberately kept back until betting
conditions were ripe. However, I
have not patience to say anything
more about it except that after what
has happened in Vancouver there can
be no open betting at the Victoria
Fall .Meeting.
-i* -;, *
Vancouver has an institution which
I would like to sec duplicated in
every Canadian city. I am tola that
once upon a time Victoria boasted
of such a place, and if so, 1 think it
is a great pity it was not kept going.
1 refer to tin* Rainier Restaurant.
This is a place which distinctly, and
literally, "fills the bill.'' It is a Bohemian Cafe, where everybody goes,
and where everybody does as he likes
within the limits of respectability. It
is a safety valve for high spirits, and
why should not high spirits hc encouraged? I believe that half the ills
which afflict society, and which reformers deplore, arc due to the unwise suppression of natural instincts.

Tne True Romance
1 was very greatly struck by an
article which appeared in an Eastern
newspaper a few days ago from the
pen of an English gentleman who was
visiting Canada. In the course of a
trip from Victoria to Vancouver he
met the Hon. Edgar Dewdney, who
gave him a few interesting reminiscences of pioneer days in British Columbia. It sounded like a romance to
the visitor when Mr. Dewdney pointed from the deck of the vessel to the
city of Vancouver and said: "More
than fifty years ago I passed through
the Narrows and this mighty city was
then only a forest of cedars"; and
herein lies the true romance. The
romance of the West, the romance of
the growth of cities, of the development of communities, literally of the
founding of a new world. For British Columbia is a new world.
It differs in every essential feature
from the world beyond the Rockies.
An old settler who attended the Conservative picnic at Sydney last year
amused me very much when Mr. McBride was speaking of "We Canadians." The old greay-beard shouted
out: "I am not a Canadian, I am a
British Columbian," and he voiced at
least the semblance of a great truth.
It is not that British Columbia is not
Canadian in sentiment, and in loyalty,
but that the physical features of the
Province differentiate it from every
other part of the Dominion, and its
very isolation seems to have impressed the handful of people who
have settled here with the idea that
they have to work out their own salvation.
The very portal to the Province is
at once impressive and suggestive.
After more than a thousand miles of
flat table land one enters a narrow
pass, and the steel road winds its
way, like a thread through mountain
fastnesses for five hundred miles; and
then the sea.
No wonder that little more than
thirty years ago Eastern Statesmen
failed to realize the possibility of this
rugged outpost, and that men as astute as Sir Richard Cartwright implored Parliament not to invite financial disaster by building a railway
into such a sea of mountains. But
far seeing men like Sir John A. Macdonald and Lord Strathcona were as
persistent as they were prescient and
the railway was built, and today at
its terminus is one of the most marvellous cities in the world.
It has been the habit of Westerners
to speak and think of Seattle as the
great city of the Pacific Coast and
probably today it has a quarter of a
million people to the 100,000 of Vancouver, but only six years ago Vancouver was proud of its 35,000, and
even Seattle cannot show a growth
of 200 per cent, in six years. The
same Lord Strathcona, whom the
Province has very largely to thank
for its railway, stated only a fortnight ago that in twenty years Vancouver would have a population of
half a million, and although to some
this might appear an extravagant estimate he would be a bold man who
would claim to be able to form a
sounder judgment than the eminent
statesman who declared it.
The fact is that Vancouver is growing in every direction and growing
so fast that no one realises what it
will become. I hold no brief for the
Terminal City, and I have no interest
in it except as a progressive Western
City, but I am simply amazed at what
is going on before our eyes. Tell
the story to a pessimist and lie says:
"Oh, yes, it is simply a boom," but
it is a boom which has lasted with
little fluctuation for six years, and is
today more vigorous than ever. An
absence of three months makes a difference which astonishes, vacant lots
are filling up, outside lots are being
embraced in the grasp of the City,
the country is becoming the town,
and the environs are ever receding.
It matters not where, a man buys,
lie can always sell at an increased
price and the increase is astonishing.
Take one illustration three months
ago the O'Brien block was sold for
$125,000; this week it was resold for
$175,000. Take another, a month ago
a young man bought two building lots
on Granville street more than half a
mile south of Hastings, in a very unfashionable locality. He expected to
hold them for several years and then
to make a decent turn over. He paid
for the two $28,000. In my hearing
he was this week offered $35,000, but
declared he would not sell at $40,000.
Perhaps, however, the greatest surprise of all is in the case of the Point
Grey lots, which were sold by the
Government at auction less than an
acre for a $1,000; he has repeatedly
refused $10,000.    Such    growth    has
never been known in Canada, and it
rests upon a solid foundation. It is
due to the concentration of great
business enterprises at Vancouver. It
is due to the fact that Vancouver has
behind it a Province of fabulous
wealth in its natural resources. It is
due further to the certainty that Vancouver will be a great shipping port
for Prairie grain, and it is due lastly
to the spirit of the people who are
determined to make their city the
greatest in the West. It has been
customary to speak of the "Seattle
Spirit" as the embodiment of enterprise, I am not sure that the future
will not recognize the "Vancouver
spirit" as the truest type of Western
progress.

Pantages Theatre.
The improvement in Victoria's
Vaudeville houses within the last year
has been most marked, especially with
Pantages. It will be remembered that
about three years ago it was nearly
always the case of"*"Let's go to the
Grand; I don't care for Pantages,"
but now ways and sights have
changed, and there is no difference
of opinion in the fact that one is as
good as the other, and oftentimes the
opinion of the public as to "who is
giving the best show this or next
week?" is in favour of Pantages. A
considerable amount of praise is due
the management of Pantages circuit,
for they really have made a wonderful improvement in their offerings;
they have a much better class
of vaudeville, which is probably
due to the fact that they have a
number of very highly paid artists.
Now we have the pleasant news of
their intention to build a new house
here; this is not just a matter of "will
they," but "they will."
The following is their offering for
week commencing Monday, the 20th
inst: Rogers, Sherman and Luhen.
excellent minstrel comediennes, who
will be seen in a one-act comedy entitled "A Visit to Uncle." Walds,
Devere and Gates, a comedy farce,
"The Irish Eskimo"; James Keane &
Co., in a dramatical sketch "Jekyl
and Hyde"; Charles Higgins, violin
virtuoso. There will be the usual illustrated song and up-to-date moving
pictures.
Grand Opera.
Two operas will be given by the
International Grand Opera Company,
an organization that has already produced the Italian works with success
throughout the United States and Canada. The undertaking is a great
one and was started by the management last fall in a serious spirit. An
attempt has been made to make it in
every way worthy; the representatives
of the principal parts, the chorus, the
orchestra, the conductor, are all said
to be equal to their tasks; the scenery
has been especially constructed and
the performances as a whole and in
detail have been so carefully prepared as to go forward with smoothness and precision.
Mme. Helene Therry, the French
artist of the International Grand
Opera Company, is not only a beautiful woman for the eyes to feast upon, but her education in the French
school of opera compels her to be
an actress, dramatic as well as lyric.
The performance of "Carmen" in
the opera of that name requires the
most intense and subdued acting imaginable. The end of the second act
demands a Rcstori who Mme. Therry is spoken of as resembling in her
power.
Mme. Therry, after playing the several European cities, came to New
York and appeared a number of times
in concerts. Mr. Edwards engaged
her for the International Grand Opera
Company, and her success has been
phenomenal from the first. Madame
is one of the artists who sings only
twice  a  week.
"Carmen" will be sung during the
engagement of the International
Grand Opera Company here on Tues
day evening, Sept. 21st.
Madame Helene Therry will assume the title role, in which she won
golden opinions in Paris, London,
New York and the other great cities
of the East.
"Commencement  Days."
John Cort takes great pleasure in
presenting Frederick V. Bowers, the
celebrated singer, comedian and song
writer, at the Victoria Theatre, on
Wednesday, Sept. 22nd, in "Commencement Days," a play of college
girl life, by Margaret Mayo and Virginia Frame. Mr. Bowers will be
supported by a company of seventy
persons, most of whom are girls.
In "Commencement Days," Mr.
Cort offers to the public a play
of inherent beauty and dramatic
strength, a combination of stage entertainment that has never failed of
signal success. The play is the joint
work of Virginia Frame, a prominent
alumnus of Smith College, and Margaret Mayo, a dramatist of ripe experience, author of "Polly of the Circus." No man or woman, no matter
how hardened by life's struggles, but
can look back to the happy childhood hours in the classroom and on
the playground with smiles of reminiscent pleasure and joy.
At the Street Corner
(Continued from Page Two)
The old adage "laugh and grow fat"
cannot be too literally interpreted,
and the gay and happy throng which
fills the Rainier Restaurant every
night between ten and twelve o'clock
certainly laughs. The refreshments
are light, the festive cigarette is much
in evidence, a splendid orchestra keeps
things lively, and now and again
everybody joins in a well known
chorus.
Very occasionally a musical lady or
gentleman favours the people with a
solo, harmless fun is the order of the
day, or rather of the night, and I must
confess that the whole scene rather
surprised me, and pleasantly so. It
recalled memories of the Jardin Bul-
lier of many years ago, and yet it
was devoid of any objectionable feature, and perpetuated only the best
elements of a "joy-supper." I am
convinced that the multiplication of
such places, always under careful supervision, would solve many social
problems. If fliey are not allowed
to exist in a harmless form they will
exist without the restrictions which
make them safe, and the course of
wisdom would be to recognize the
want and reasonably comply with it.

"Sued for a breach of promise, eh?"

to prove it by the love letters I

A gas-broiled steak will promote a fine appetite,—an epicurean gusto. You'll never eat a fried
steak atfer you've once tried a gas broiler. The lower oven in a gas range is a wonder-worker for
roasts and broiling. Juices of the meat are retained—both sides of a steak are broiled in four minutes
at an expense of about one cent. With coal half the juice is lost, the cost is one-third more and the
inconvenience and dirt and worry can never be figured. There is comfort and saving and good eating
in burning gas.
You can do it yourself without watching for the maid or
the Chinaman or your wife to
get up and prepare breakfast.
A Gas Range saves time—it is
started in a second. It saves
temper—your breakfast is ready
almost before you know it and
it saves money because there is
no cost except for the time in
actual service.
Ever think what a fine wedding gift a good gas stove or
range would prove? Scarcely a
September bride who would not
deem such a present most appreciable. It would lighten the
recipient's labors, add to the
comfort of both wife and husband and help in its economy
to build up the young couple's
bank account.

Victoria Exhibition
On   Monday  afternoon   the   forty-
I ninth   annual   Exhibition,   under   the
uispicef of the B. C. Agricultural Association, will be formally opened by
His   Honour   Lieut.-Governor   Duns-
|muir.
The exhibition will extend over the
whole week and promises to be the
best ever held under the auspices of
this association. More entries have
been received than ever before, each
class bring well filled and every prize
will be contested for. In the main
building, the exhibits will be much
better, more space being given to the
local manufacturers owing to the
removal of the school exhibits and
ladies' division to the building erected
especially for the ladies' department.
The local exhibitors have not been
slow to take up the space and already no space can be secured.
Tn the ladies' building everything
is being nicely arranged by the com-
Imittee and the display will be very
attractive. The building itself is a
rery handsome structure and attracts
'considerable admiration.
In the poultry and pet stock classes
the building will be filled with exhibits and the committee from the
Victoria Poultry Association has its
hands full in placing the exhibits to
the best advantage.
The principal attraction from the
entries will be the horses and cattle.
In the former, a better class of
horses will be shown and more than
ever. The judging of the horses promises to be very exciting and already
there is considerable speculation as
to the probable winners.
In the cattle division considerable
interest has been aroused by the receipt of the entries from Mr. Ness
of Quebes, who is bringing his celebrated herd of Ayrshires to try conclusions with those of British Columbia. In addition to this more cattle are being exhibited by the individual exhibitors, they evidently being attracted by the large prizes provided by the association.
Although the exhibition will not bc
formally opened until 2 o'clock Monday afternoon, judging will commence
early Monday morning, and will be
rushed through with all possible dispatch, in order that the visitors to the
fair may be able to recognize between the winners and losers.
In judging the horses and cattle
the management is arranging to carry
it on in a very systematic manner,
every class being given a special time
when the competitors are supposed
to be on the ground. This will obviate the possibility of any delay;
in addition the exhibitor runs the
chance of being disqualified for being late, and every effort will be made
to run the judging on schedule time.
The Horse Show is expected to
over-shadow that of last year, and owing to the great demand for admittance last year the management has
decided to hold the show both afternoon and evenings. The horse show
ring has been prettily decorated and
uow has a permanent roof, which
will make it possible to hold the show
rain or shine, and the spectators will
be able to witness the contests with
comfort.
The horse races are also expected
to attract large crowds and there :s
an absolute guarantee that there will
be sufficient competitors. Secretary
Smart was in Vancouver at the beginning of the week and has the assurance of the horsemen that there
will be from 125 to 150 runners here
for the races.
Tn the harness class practically
every race has been filled, especially
the 2.35 pace and 2.30 trot in which
there are no less than seventeen entries, The other events are filled in
comparison and the lovers of the
harness races are sure of witnessing
several exciting finishes. Exhibition
by the Guideless trotter will be very
interesting. This gallant little mart
will be a novelty in this city and
will sure prove a good drawing card.
The first attempt to make an airship flight in British Columbia will
be made during the exhibition. Secretary Smart has made a good move
when he secured the services of Prof.
Struebel to make daily flights during
the exhibition. This should bring
visitors from all parts of the Province as Victoria will be the only city
in B. C. in which Prof. Stroebel will
make a flight. In addition to the
daily flights at the exhibition, it is
expected that the Professor wil make
a flight over the city, just to let
everyone see that he can control his
airship. Thc ascension will in all probability take place from a point in
the rear of the Grandstand, a large
area being required to insure a successful flight.
The evening attraction will make
the night attendance at the exhibition
larger than ever before. It has always been conceded that the evening
attendance was not as it should be
and to do away with this the directorate has arranged for a grand pyro-
lechnical display, portraying the
Battle of Alexandria. The details of
this famous work are known to everyone who has ever read British history.
The bombardment of the City of
Alexandria by the British warship will
be shown in a very realistic manner,
in the display, and the minds of the
spectators will readily be diverted to
the stories read in their school days
on account of the war. Arrangements
for this display are in the hands of
Hitt Bros, of Seattle, and their ability to fulfill their promises is too well
known by Victorians to require anv
comment. The display will extend
over a distance of three hundred feet
and more fireworks will be used than
have ever been used in any one display of pyrotechnics in British Columbia.
Band concerts have been arranged
for every afternoon and evening. Both
the Fifth Regiment and Victoria Concert bands having been engaged, and
it is quite likely that an outside organization will bc engaged for at least
one day.
The officials for all departments
havc been appointed ancl will commence their labours with the knowledge that some of the decisions will
bc very close, and every effort has
been made to secure judges who rank
high in their individual classes.
In the horse races Sam McGibbon,
who acted as clerk of the scales during the summer meeting here, has
been engaged to supervise tllis de-

partment ancl he will be assisted by
Phil Reilly, who is also well up in
the game. The starting will be done
by Joe Webber, who made his debut
in thc game at the commencement
of the race meeting in this  city.
The appointment of Webber as
starter will be hailed with satisfaction by both the owners and spectators. His work during his tenure
of office was all that could be desired and if he can maintain that high
standard of excellence, the people of
Victoria will certainly do homage to
our Joe, as many of the lovers of
racing in this city consider that Webber belongs here, because he made
his first step towars becoming a prominent starter in this city and he was
brought into the limelight by thc Victoria Country Club.
The officials in the other classes
will be the best that can bc secured
and there is very little possibility of
any kicks being registered.
Arrangements have been made with
the transportation companies, for a
special rate (luring the fair and will
extend over the entire week. In addition to this several excursions have
been arranged to arrive during the
exhibition, one of the largest being
that from Bellingham on the Str.
Chippewa, for which every available
ticket is said to be sold.
The B. C. Electric Railway Company is also doing its share towards
making the fair a success, as on it
depends the attendance. Every effort
is being made to handle the large
crowds that are expected to be present. A large spur has been laid at
the entrance to the grounds on which
extra cars will be held waiting to
carry the crowd to the city without
any waste of time. Travelling to the
grounds during the day a ten minute
service will be maintained and it is
expected that there will be very few
complaints.
The following is the programme for
the week:—
Monday, September 20
11  a.m.—Judging commences.
2 p.m.—Formal opening.
2.30 p.m.—Airship ascension.

Toast Your Fair Guests
cAND THE WINNING .ONIES
A good toast requires a good wine. That the best toasts
of the age are drank in the best wine is well proven in the
fact that at all the prominent banquets and high-class
functions throughout the civilized world the one champagne used exclusively is G. H. Mumm & Co.'s. The fact
that wealthy and discerning people are always willing to
pay for the best is the reason of the enormous import of
Mumm's champagne to this country.
To always insure the same high standard of quality, G.
H. Mumm & Co. make immense purchases of fine vintages
in order to tide over poorer ones. They never confine
themselves to the product of a limited number of vineyards, hence the fact that no other champagne on the
market can show such proof of its superlative quality and
popular appreciation.
Mumm's "Selected Brut," especially put up for the English champagne drinking people, can be obtained here: it
contains the natural alcohol of the grapes—the alcohol is
not added as in other so-called "brut" wines. Mumm's
"Selected Brut" is a very genuine brut champagne pronounced by connoisseurs to be the finest procurable.
The most critical palates and the most sensitive digestions can use G. H. Mumm's Selected Brut and "Exera
Dry" without unpleasant after effects.
Mumm's Champagnes may be procured at any hotel,
bar, club or cafe. Your dealer can supply you for home
use.
