be accepted by them with cheerfulness and
confidence. Meanwhile, every exchange
which comes to hand strengthens the case
of those who have all along maintained that
the final issue will be a fight not about
dollars and cents, but about the great National and Imperial features of the Reciprocity Pact which are so distasteful to all
loyal Canadians.
The citizens have followed with interest the discussions in and out of
the Council Chamber of the project known
as the Inner Harbour Railway.   It is gratifying to find that most of the matters in
the water-front and running branches at
right angles to the same wherever required.
This system if applied to Victoria would
mean laying rails along Store and Wharf
streets, for example, with branches down
all cross streets to the water-front. Such
a system would preserve both cross-streets
ancl water-front intact; it would not curtail the area available for warehouses or
wharfs, but it would avoid the very heavy
expense of constructing a lengthy sea wall
or a bed for the proposed railway. Another point which would well bear consideration is whether it would not be better
on every ground to terminate the proposed
railway at the north end of the Causeway
The Circulation Contest
Special Prize to be Awarded Next
For the sake of those who have an idea that there will be deviation of the vote
schedule as printed on the page advertisement of the Contest in this issue, it is thought
best to state herein now, and most positively that no extra votes will be offered.
There will be no proposition presented whereby if certain things are accomplished
additional rewards in the shape of votes will be allowed. It matters not what has
been done in the past or what methods other newspapers have used during their
contest. Every contest is vastly different from another. In some contests extra vote
premiums are the rule. In others the general proposition is outlined at the beginning
and carefully followed.
In this contest everything is made plain from the start. The vote schedules are
published and the dates of the decrease in number of votes given in advance. While
other contests may increase the number of votes allowed every subscription as the
contest progresses, The Week's contest is exactly the opposite, the vote schedule
being decreased at stated intervals and those intervals plainly set forth.
All subscriptions turned in up to io p.m. August sth will receive a greater nu.r.ber
of votes than at any time later during the contest.
The candidate turning in the greatest number of subscriptions during this week
will receive a special prize of $20.00 in gold.
Subscribers and candidates outside the City of Victoria depositing their subscriptions in the Post-office before 10 p.m. Saturday, July 29th, bearing the Postmaster's
stamp on envelope and reaching The Week office by 10 a.m. Tuesday, August 1, will
be credited towards the special prize.
connection with this project to which public
attention was directed have received attention, such as the safe-guarding of the picturesque water-front extending from near
the Post-office to the C.P.R. Wharf, the
protection of public rights on the streets
ancl the securing of access to the Outer
Wharf of all industries ancl businesses established or likely to be established in the
city. The end, however, is not yet, ancl
in view of the magnitude of the undertaking The Week ventures to suggest that
there are several points which might receive
the careful consideration of those who arc
in charge of the enterprise. The first is to
consider whether it is absolutely necessary to build on the water-front in the way
suggested. It would seem to The Week
that a railway monopolising the water-front
all the way from the Outer Wharf to Point
Ellice bridge, apart from presenting many
constructional difficulties and entailing enormous expense, would deprive property owners of the necessary control of the waterfront to enable them to conduct their business, and would at the same time prevent
free access from the streets to the waterfront. This difficulty has been met in the
case of such great cities as Philadelphia
and Chicago by confining the harbour railways to the streets which run parallel to
ancl secure railway access to the Outer
Wharf by bridging the Narrows from
Laurel Point to the Songhees Reserve. The
cost of a modem steel bascule bridge at
this point would not exceed $250,000,
which would be a flea-bite compared with
the cost of acquiring rights and building a
railway from the Post-office round the
Causeway and Belleville Street to Laurel
Point. It would also get rid of the one
difficulty, the spoiling of the view, about
which Victorians will be apt to be most sensitive when the scheme comes to a vote.
These are two points which strike The
Week as being of great importance and as
alternative suggestions they may fairly be
considered before any definite conclusion
is arrived at.
Lobnitz dredge is here. Its arrival
was heralded with a great blast of
trumpets; the public were assured that thc
one machine which could swiftly and surely
rid the Harbour of its recks had been secured. More—a special point was made
of the fact that the three extremely dangerous recks known as the Pinacle, the
I leaver ancl tlie Tuzo situate near the southeaster:! extremity of,the Songhees Reserve
opposite the .Marine Hospital, were the rocks
for the removal of which this dredge had
been specially ordered, ancl that their removal would be proceeded with forthwith.
So much for the preamble. Now for the
sequel. The three rocks referred to, which
are so dangerous because they affect the
free swing of the Grand Trunk boats, cannot be approached by the Lobnitz dredge
until many hundreds of thousands of cubic
yards of rock have been removed by the
ordinary process of blasting. The reason
for this is that the Lobnitz dredge requires
at least eight or nine feet of clear water
over any submerged rock on which it has
to operate. This is what may be called its
"draught," and when the process is explained it will easily be understood why this
is necessary. The Lobnitz dredge is irt
reality a rock crusher. The "modus operandi" consists in the raising and dropping
of a twenty-ton steel hammer fitted with
hardened steel points. The hammer requires an elevation of six feet ancl then as
it is allowed to fall, similarly to a pile-
driver, it smashes ancl disintegrates the
rock beneath. Since the arrival of the
new dredge it has been discovered that it
will take not less than two years to remove
sufficient rock to allow the dredge to approach the special work for which it was
ordered. These facts have been submitted
to Mr. G. A. Keefer, the Government en-
ginner, and on the suggestion of the Inner
Harbour Commissioners he has allowed the
dredge to be diverted elsewhere. It is going to attack some rocks at the very entrance of the harbour ancl will use up the
balance of the two years in dredging, or
to be more correct in crushing, the rocks
in the new channel proposed to be made
from the entrance of the harbour along the
Songhees Reserve, and so on to the Grand
Trunk dock. The object of The Week in
calling attention to these facts is that the
public may know why the Lobnitz dredge
is unable for years to come to tackle the
work which it was intended for, and which
the public was assured would be commenced immediately on its arrival, and why
meanwhile it will be occupied for at least
two years in doing other work which is not
urgent and for whicii there was no immediate demand. Obviously someone has
blundered, and a handful of very amiable
and well-meaning, but not very well-posted
men have allowed themselves to be misled
into the endorsement of an error. Meanwhile Mr. Templeman will have to rewrite the perennial "dredge" clause of his
election speech.
Industrial Workers of the World,
who having tried to turn the world
upside clown have come hither also, should
be held by the Court to have obstructed
the traffic at the corner of Yates and Government streets, they will be convicted of
an offence against British law and will have
to pay the penalty. It would be a mistake
to construe the action of the authorities as
infringing tlie liberty of the subject or curtailing the right of free speech. There is
nothing to whicii British subjects cling
more tenaciously than these' two great
rights, and the very fact that the offenders
have been so unanimously condemned by
men of tlieir own industrial status should
be to them the most convincing argument
that they are in the wrong. Some clay the
Industrial Workers will learn their lesson,
which is that the time has gone by for securing social and economic reforms by revolutionary methods. No one takes such
threats seriously now-a-days, that is, no
one who lives under the British flag. If
this organization cannot secure its objects
by argumentative force it will never secure
them by physical force. It may not b?
generally known that the chief plank in the
platform   of   the   Industrial   Workers   is
(Continued on Page 16) THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 29, 1911
It is not very often that I miss
what excitement may crop up at thc
street corner, but I regret to say that
last Sunday night I was not on thc
spot when the misguided members oi
the I. W. W. made their futile attempt
to hold a meeting at a point which in
the opinion of the police was unsuitable. I was exceedingly glad to hear,
however, that they were unsuccessful
in their efforts to defy the law and
that their pose of oppressed patriotism awakened no sympathy in the
assembled crowd. On the contrary,
according to the evidence of an eyewitness there was a small detachment
of members of the Society of St.
George ready and eager to come to
the aid of the police and another
composed of Sons of England just as
anxious to support the preservers of
law and order. Probably the agitators could have found no city on the
Continent where their demonstration
would have fallen so flat as in Victoria, but from our point of view it
is a matter for congratulation that
the average man in the street is happy
and contented and has no sympathy
with paid alien agitators who make it
a business in life to stir up strife. It
is seldom that the agitator is an altruist; in the majority of cases he
is out for what he can make and the
more discord he can create, the more
he is worth to the central organization the bigger his salary. It is etsy
enough to draw a crowd, but the latter is ever more prone to ridicule
than to sympathise, and it is safe to
say that on Sunday night last those
members of the I. W. W. who sought
to pose as "martyrs to the cause'
only earned for themselves the more
or less good-natured contempt of the
vast majority of thos • who heard o'
saw them. At least that is the impression made on all who have
spoken to me on the subject, though
in some cases the contempt was by
no means savoured with good-nature.
*   *   *
I have writen many a time and oft
with regard to the rule of the road
and now I see that the City Council
has taken the matter up in earnest.
But—what shall be said of their proposal to make Victoria a place unique
by altering the universal law affecting
pedestrians? Section I of the rules
of the roads and sidewalks in the proposed by-law reads as follows:—
"Every person upon any sidewalk
shall keep to the left-hand side
thereof, and shall in meeting any person keep to the left and pass such
person on their right, and shall on
overtaking any person, pass on the
right of such person overtaken." Now
we know that in different countries
different rules apply as to the rule
of the road as regards vehicles and
it is not long since a discussion arose
in thc correspondence columns of the
Colonist as to whether the English
or the Continental system was thc
better. But I believe that I am correct in stating that throughout the
world, wherever rules apply to the
sidewalks, pedestrians are constrained
to keep to the right. What possible
reason can there be then for altering
this universal rule? Possibly the
phrasing of the clause is merely a
slip on the part of the City Prosecutor, or a misprint'in the Colonist
of Tuesday last, lt surely cannot represent the real intention of the
lawyer who is engaged in drafting
the new by-law pertaining to street
obstructions. I had nq.t,, been down
town more than .twenty minutes on
the same Tuesday morning before
three men tackled me on the subject
and begged me to protest against'
such a regulation. Goodness knows,
people are careless enough as it is
about observing the rule, but what
will it be when they first of all have
to forget what they have been taught
and think out, the regulation afresh.
No., Mr. Solicitor, draw up your new
by-law with all imaginable restrictions, definitions and regulations to
help the   police'   in' preserving..lhe
streets unobstructed, but leave us pedestrians the right to keep to the
right. Otherwise confusion on the
sidewalks will become worse confounded.
* *   *
And by the same token it would
be a good idea if the many hundreds,
not to say thousands, who use the
post-office every day in the working
week would remember that there are
two doors at the north end. One is
an exit and the other an entrance
door. At present, seeing that the
proposed new by-law is still in abeyance, the right-hand door as you face
it from the street is the entrance and
the left hand one is the exit. But
how many people take the least notice of this simple rule? Time and
time again one sees intending entrants drawing back to avoid a blow
on the nose from the swing door
thrown back by a thoughtless person
coming out. Just because it sometimes saves three steps to use the
nearest door all rules are broken and
the law-abiding public has to submit
to being hustled by those who are
too thoughtless or lazy to observe
the most ordinary rules of every-day
* *   *
What a chance Victoria affords to
a statistician at present. Will someone compile the necessary figures to
give the answer to the following sum?
"If nine months after the Government Street fire the condition of the
main street in Victoria is as it is at
present, how long would San Francisco have taken in rebuilding if it
had been inhabited by people who had
received their early training in Victoria?" Really, it positively makes me
blush when I meet a man on the
street who was here, say six months
ago, and see him looking round with
a puzzled smile, as who should say,
"I suppose you have had another fire
since I was here last." Is there nothing that can be done to compel the
owners of the property to clean it
up? I can understand that there is
no sort of compulsion to build which
can be exercised, but surely the debris might be cleared away from the
old Spencer Block and the Five Sisters. If it is considered advisable to
keep the bricks on the premises a
gang of men might be employed to
pile them up in tidy heaps, or the
children of the town might make a
few cents during their holidays by
playing at building castles with real
bricks. It makes one wish that the
fire had been followed by an earthquake which would have swallowed
by the ruins and left a clean open
* *   *
One reads a great deal of trash occasionally in ultra-Radical and Socialist papers about the Boy Scouts,
in fact only this week I saw in one
of the office exchanges a rehash of all
the stock phrases employed by those
who would condemn any movement
which might possibly be construed as
backing up that monster "Capital"
against the poor serf "Labour." (I
should have written "Labor" as its
most vigorous exponents usually spell
it without the "u"). But I don't think
that the Victoria Boy Scouts who
have' lately concluded their summer
camp at Cadboro Bay look as though
they were growing up to be the enemies of mankind. They are a fine
lot of lads and a credit to the city.
The latter owes a big debt to Col.
Hall and to all the other men who
have devoted themselves to make the
movement a success in Victoria.
* *   *
On two occasions recently I made
some remarks which were the reverse
of complimentary with regard to the
meals provided at the Empress Hotel.
It is puly just, therefore, that I should
chronicle the fact that last Sunday I
had a most excellent dinner at that
hostelry. It is possible that my previous remarks were productive of this
gratifying result,  but,  be  that as it
may, I am glad to take this opportunity of saying that the dinner in
question was much enjoyed.
* .*   *
A few weeks ago I commented on
the action of the members of the
Fifth Regiment in driving back to
the city from camp in the cars. In
spite of the explanation offered that
this was simply to get the men back
quickly in order that they might be
paid off, I still think that my criticism was. justified, and that the system is derogatory both to the interests and the dignity of the regiment.
But when writing it never occurred
to me that an injurious effect would
be produced in another direction. Last
Saturday, however, when coming
home from the tennis grounds on
Cadboro Bay Road I found that the
Boy Scouts were returning from
camp in a similar manner. So much
for the influence of a bad example.
I trust that another year Colonel
Currie will see his way to revert to
the time-honoured custom of "marching" his men. I shudder to think
what the honoured pioneers of the
regiment, whose manly and robust
figures are to be seen on Mr. May-
nard's photographs of early Victorian
scenes, would think if they could see
the Fifth Regiment riding home
from camp.
* *   *
I am not a betting man and I know
that Mr. R. L. Drury is not, but there
are times when a bet may be more
conclusive than an argument, and I
therefore make Mr. Drury the following challenge. First,, that he cannot
procure a letter signed by the President of the Dominion Trust Company
stating that the real reason why that
company abandoned, at any rate for
the nonce, its building plans on the
site near the post-office was because
of the proximity of the "public convenience." If Mr. Drury can produce such a letter I will give the
modest sum of five dollars to any
charity he likes to name; if he cannot, then he must remit to the charity the like amount. When this momentous question is settled I will undertake to prove to Mr. Drury's satisfaction the real cause of the abandonment.
* *   *
One clay this week, whilst gazing
out of my office window, I noticed a
weighing machine standing on the
sidewalk near to the north entrance
of Spencer's store on View Street.
Presently a lady came along, tripped
against the projection and fell. She
picked herself up, .apparently not
much injured, and proceeded on her
way.. Since then I can see that life possesses a new interest, and whenever
I have a few spare moments I intend
to watch the trippers. The machine
is still there. I sometimes wonder
whether the City collects any rent
for such privileges as the permanent
occupation and encumbering of sidewalks. If not, I do not see why the
civic revenues might not be substantially increased from  such a source.
On the terrace of a country club, overlooking a green dotted with sheep, a group
of non-golfers were taking tea. A male non-
golfer, who took his tea through a straw,
said thoughtfully.: "Golf might be defined
as billiards gone to grass."
"Spleen on the green, I'd call it," said a
female  non-golfer.
"Or the last flicker of the dying fire of
athletics," queried a young football player.
".The misuse of land. and language," suggested  a  tennis champion.
"No, no; you're all wrong," said a famous
angler. "Golf is simply a game where the
ball lies badly and the player well."

When was Champagne first mentioned? When Eve's
baby called, for MUMM. He little knew how cele-*
brated the' name of MUMM was to become; how
thousands of tons of the most perfect grapes from the
finest vineyards would be used. He little foresaw
that kings would demand and connoisseurs would call
for Mumm's Champagne. G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Extra
dry is conceded to be the finest produced this decade.
It can also be procured in half pints (splits) in which
style this matchless wine is .especially adapted for
physicians, fine club ancl restaurant use. The Selected
Brut is a brut champagne of the very highest quality;
made of. selected cuvees of vintage years specially
adapted for brut wines,—a very dry ancl genuine brut
champagne of exceeding purity without being heavy.
If your dealer cannot supply you with
Mumm's—the finest of all Champagnes—

receive it promptly, in the size you desire.

them .This is the second occasion
on which the management of the
Majestic Theatre has been able to
show unique pictures of wild animals,
the other time being when the films
taken in Africa on "Buffalo" Jones'
expedition were flashed on the screen.
The Crystal Theatre
Naturally the great feature of the
Crystal Theatre is not so much what
is on now, though that is good
enough, but what is going to be on
next week. I refer, of course, to the
Baby Contest. There will be a five-
dollar bill paid to the possessor of
the baby whose picture gains the
most votes during the coming week.
The enterprising management of the
Crystal Theatre are giving all married
people with babies an opportunity to
let their offspring start in making
money for the family early. All that
the proud parent has to do is to hand
in a photo of the baby, which act
passes them in free, and then trust
to the good taste of the crowd. Remember that next week is "Baby"
Romano's Theatre
During the over-poweringly hot afternoons which have oppressed us
lately many people have found relief
in the cool, well-ventilated picture
house on Government Street, where
the entertainment offered to the eye
has been as excellent as the comfort
afforded thc body. One of the big
features of the week has been a Than-
houser comedy-drama entitled "Two
Little Girls," whilst the Pathe American Company excelled itself in a
comedy detailing the troubles of
The Princess Theatre
Victoria people who attend the
opening play of the Williams Stock
Co. on Monday, July 31st at the Princess Theatre, formerly A.O.U.W.
Hall, will witness an excellent performance of Milton Royal's beautiful
drama entitled "Friends."
This play, though far from lacking
in comedy, owes its hold on public
favour to the strong heart interest
running all through the play, also to
the fact that all the scenes are absolutely true to life. That these qualities will be properly brought out is
guaranteed by the names of the acting company. Miss Pinkie Mullaly
will be remembered by her connection
with the Redmond Co., which appeared here several years ago, and
these years have added to her ability. Mr. Arthur Cyril, late of the
Lawrence Co., Spokane, has a host of
friends in Victoria who know him
as a young actor of intelligence and
talent. Mr. Van Dyke, also late of
the Lawrence Co., Miss Margaret
Doyle from the Lois, Seattle, Mr.
Byron Lovick from the Seattle Theatre, and Mr. Dave Williams who is
known as one of the finest comedians
in the West. The remainder of tht
company although not known to Victoria audiences are vouched for l-v
the management. Remember that
though the admission charged is
lower than ever before in Victoria the
standard of actors and plays is
higher. It is to be hoped that Victorians will turn out and pass their
opinion on the merits of the Williams Stock Co.

It is hardly reasonable to quote
even the lesser towns of England in
a comparison or Philadelphia, the
cricket centre of America. In fact
there is hardly a city iri the world
where the peculiar conditions found
in Victoria prevail.
Few cities of its size are as wealthy
as the Capital City; few cities have
the leisure class in proportion, but
there is no city that I have visited
or knew of, where so large a proportion are actively engaged in almost
every known outdoor sport yet exert
themselves less to meet their friends
on thc fields of contest or see for
themselves the prowess of their husbands, wives, sons, daughters or
friends. The interest is here without
a shadow of a doubt. Nearly everyone scans thc papers to see if under
some fantastic heading a meager account may be found of an important
event in their particular line and contents himself or herself with receiving by word of mouth, as in the Pa-
triarchical days, a few distorted
crumbs of information. But as for
seeing for themselves, or remaining
at a game after tea is over, meeting
the players, entertaining them at iheir
homes or doing for their own pleasure many things which are considered,
next to the game, most important accessories, far be it from them. This
absent treatment condition may be a
part of the individualism of the West
which so forcibly presents itself to
one accustomed to the concerted action of the East and the Continent.
At first blush it might look like selfishness, but closer inspection would
certainly induce the conclusion that
it is the lack of knowing how to
derive the fullest enjoyment for ourselves, by giving others the best that
is in us.
Is not this only the application of
the Golden Rule to our social existence?   Making a plea for a little self-
sacrifice. In the butterfly world,
rules and forms are made for subordinates but disregarded by leaders.
Leaders create; others copy. One
to the manner born disregards the
"vox populi" .which is often as untrue or vacilating as the weather-
vane whereas the climber is in deadly fear of making a mis-step. Let us
then begin by real instead of perfunctory performances. Attend tji
cricket games, for which this sermon
is written, in person instead of by subconsciousness. Your example will
soon diffuse itself among the masses.
Dum vivimus, vivamus, which may
be translated, While we live, let us
have a good time.
Though the Alexandra Cafe, whicii

been in need of a restaurant to which
ladies who are down town shopping

An Idyllic
By Bohemian
During the few years I have lived
in Victoria it has been dinned into
my ears time and again that
Cowichan Lake was the one place to
go to for a summer vacation. As I
never take vacations the matter did
not interest me very much, but I have
always vowed that I would make a
flying trip to this delectable place.
I made it last week-end and take the
earliest opportunity of endorsing all
the good things that I have heard
about Cowichan Lake and the vicinity.
I left Victoria on the eight o'clock
train last Sunday morning, reaching
Duncan at ten, only to find that I
had foolishly neglected to enquire
about the stage—and no stage runs
011 Sundays. However, a kind friend
from Victoria was going up on a special and offered me a seat, which
made travelling both easier and
quicker than by the orthodox method.
The distance from Duncan to the
lower end of Cowichan Lake is twenty miles. The first five pass through
farming country and I noticed splendid'crops of wheat and oats as well
as numerous chicken ranches. At five
miles one strikes the woods and
thereafter the road lies through one
of the densest and wealthiest forests
in British Columbia. It is picturesque
to a degree, with occasional glimpses
of the Cowichan River in the valley
and more than occasional stretches
of the right of way recently cleared
by the C. P. R. for their railway extension from Duncan. The amount
of work done on the latter surprised
me; it is evident that construction is
really being- pushed at last and I am
credibly informed that trains will be
Tunning direct from Victoria to
Cowichan Lake next summer.
At the foot of the lake is the Riverside Hotel, a modern structure
largely patronized by those who wish
to confine their attention chiefly to
the river. A favourite occupation is
to engage an Indian who will take
you down in his canoe for something
less than twenty dollars. This route
is largely patronised and in driving
up one overtakes quite a number of
Indian freighting teams hauling the
big canoes up over the road to bring
them clown on the river. The squaws
appear to superintend the former operation. As to the fishing I am not
going to express any opinion after
only one visit, but I can vouch for
the fact that a well-known Victorian
lady and her friend secured a nice
basket of trout in the river, using a
fly, on the clay that 1 was there.
Cowichan Lake Hotel is about four
miles beyond the Riverside Hotel ancl
is certainly one of the most charming
retreats I have ever visited. It is
more like an old-fashioned, country
farm-house than a modem hotel. It
has roomy passages and corridors, a
wide verandah ancl balcony, charming gardens and ideal surroundings,
lt is perched on the top of a knoll,
backed by the forest ancl the lawns
slope in every direction on the front
and sides to the blue waters of the
lake. The house is splendidly managed by Mr. and Mrs. Lomas. There
is a fleet of boats and a commodious
launch. In the early morning ancl the
late evening those who are so inclined can get all the fish they want
by trolling in the lake, but I must
say that this form of sport possesses
no attraction for me. The lake
stretches for more than twenty miles
beyond the hotel; the shores are
dotted here and there with residences,
shacks ancl camps, and I was not a
little surprised to find that so many
English   visitors   make   a   point   of
spending a few days here. The hotel
register shows that since the first
week in March the house has been
full and at the present time the demand for accommodation is so great
that some eight or ten tents have
been erected in the grounds and all
are occupied. There are several other
launches plying on the lake beside
Mr. Lomas' and they all work full
time, and most of them over-time.
The favourite programme is to take
a run to the north end of the lake
where the fishing is at its best; spend
the day there and come down again
in the evening. This is easily within
the compass of eight hours and I
heard nothing but praise from those
who made the trip.
The Canadian Northern line is already surveyed from Duncan to
Cowichan Lake and is being surveyed
northwards to Alberni. In a very
few years there will be two transportation systems competing for business to one of the most delightful
and popular resorts in Canada. To
those who have not been I would
say "Go." To those who have been
"Go again."

A Dissertation on
(By Gilbert Malcolm Sproat)
Macaulay, in Essay on Clive (Edinburgh Review) states that Clive
was a Knight of The Bath, and that
later, during the investigation of his
Indian conduct, he was installed
with pomp in Henry VII chapel, as
such knight, etc.
"K. B.," therefore, is all right as
to Clive. That was the usual
phrasing until the remodelling of the
order in 1815, necessitated by the
increase of population, etc., etc., and
the bestowal of the order for civil,
as well as war, records.

the Bath), and "G. C. B." (Grand
Cross of the Bath), have been since

except Sir John A. Macdonald, and
our Sir James Douglas. There may
have heen Canadian born British
Army and Navy men who have become K. C. B.
Premier Alexander Mackenzie, of
Canada, declined an offered title of
"K. C. M. G." He told me he did
not consider titular honours suitable
to politicians in a democratic country, but had no objection to their
bestowal to mark distinction in
science, art, philanthropy, etc. Others
of high place in Eastern Canada said
that the women desired, more than
the men, such honourary social distinction.
1 know many men in the Old
Country who have refused titular
honours, noticeably in the late generation, the nominal office of Privy
.Couiicollor carrying the title of the
"Right Honourable" has been favoured by some men.
It is useless to ridicule the official
marking of social distinctions, human
nature being what it is. Mrs. Sergeant considers herself a cut above
Mrs. Corporal, and so does the owner
of 100 acres.

I noticed with interest the repro

a distinguished visitor to the Coronation. I don't quite understand the
reference to the London music hall?
I was over there too—among the
crowd—and visited one; it seemed to
me a very popular show. In case
your readers might be interested in

Vesta Victoria—dressed as Britannia

which went something like this (with

Somebody behind me made a remark about "Narrow gauge Imperialism." Couldn't have been?—but no
he doesn't go to such places.—I went
out to see a man. On my return
some sort of a musical sketch was
in progress. The stage was set to
represent a court of justice and the
spectators, attornies, police, and sheriff, were all engaged in a wild dance.
They came down to the front and
sang a chorus; the -attorney for the
defence—who was distinguished by
carrying a large chip on his shoulder
—beating time with a wicked looking
salmon gaff. The chorus seemed to
have a familiar ring. You may perhaps recognize it?—
Sing a song of sixpense
A pocket full  of rye,
Forin sent us back word
He "dressed like a guy."
livery eye was opened
The lords and ladies sing
"Isn't that a dainty dress
To wear before the King."
There was loud applause, and the
song went on—
A chap is in tbe skookum house

Can't make toke and treacle,
Taste like bread .and honey.
The mayor is in his garden
Turning on the hose,

Enter the Judge—He is dressed in
a full court suit, wears a shako of
the Queen's Own pattern, and carries
a powder puff in one hand and a
lighted cigarette in the other.
Judge—"On with the dance." Such
a scene is the truest evidence of real
Imperialism." "Ahem"—He takes his
seat, and the band strikes up for the
judge's song; whicii I managed to
take down on my cuffs:
The Judge's Song

Counsel for the defence, interrupting:
"Which  attornies
Thoroughly,  utterly,  slaughter!!'
The prisoner is brought in.
Judge—Prisoner at the bar. A
bar being an improper place. I will
ask the sheriff to arrange a few
chairs, and things."
The judge removes his court shoes,
takes off his shako and puts on a
black cap, white court functionaries
fly hither and yon moving furniture.
Judge—"Prisoner, you are guilty
of the heinous crime of having rheumatism, within the meaning of the
Act, and the city limits. Such action
on your part constitutes an improper
performance, so you may prepare for
the worst. You are also guilty
through your counsel of presenting a
numerously signed petition praying
for mercy without changing the
wording after the signatures were attached. Your counsel, thereby showing ignorance of the first rudiments
of graft, and a gross disrespect, for
precedent, and proceedure, with regard to such things, as laid down
by myself. And you, prisoner, are
therefore guilty of Contempt of
Court, and will be soaked accordingly. You get ten years hard, and I
will now proceed to rub it in."
I had to go and see another man,
something about a clog I think it was,
and got back to hear the end of the
rubbing in:—
Judge, continuing—"Another thing
—Let me advise you not to try writing to the papers. You will only give
yourself away, and start all the people
laughing at you. I feel that I can't
close my remarks without dragging
in something about 'The rank being
but the  guinea  stamp'."
Counsel for the defence, chipping in
—"M'yes! And some judgments are
so rank that if they were even stuck
all over with ten-dollar stamps and
dropped into a pillar box, the post-
office would start an action for improper use of the mails."
Sheriff (aside)—"And recovery of
costs for disinfectants."
Here the judge dropped his cigarette on the powder puff which exploded. When the smoke cleared
away the judge was seen in the dock
being tried on a charge of taking himself too seriously. He is convicted,
and sentenced to be sent out to British Columbia on a lecturing tour with
a magic lantern, to show how the
reciprocity arrangement will benefit
the fruit growers.
It was getting late, and I had to
see another man, so did not wait
for any more of the performance.
But there surely seemed nothing improper about that show.

Mosquitos Bad
"Mosquitos are a greater pest in
East Kootenay this year than has
been the case since white men have
known the country," remarked a well
known contractor who recently returned from a trip to the Kootenays.
"Construction at some points on the
Kootenay Central Railway has been
temporarily stopped because of the
plague of the insects and all the
government road work in that part
of the country is at a standstill. Men
simply cannot endure the torture inflicted by the little pests.
"The presence of the mosquitos in
such unprecedentedly large numbers
this year is accounted for by the late
cold wet spring whicii created* conditions especially favourable for
hatching the insects. The recent
warm wave supplied the heat necessary for the liberation of countless
millions of mosquitoes from the
swamps and the low-lying wet lands."
When Professor Wendell of Harvard entered upon his Sabbatical year he remained
in Cambridge some weeks after bis leave of
absence began and persisted in taking part in
the departmental meeting. The head of the
department   protested.
"Sir," said he, "you arc officially absent.
You are non est."
"Oh, very well, replied Professor Wendell,
"a non est man is thc noblest work of God."

)etail plans have just been finished by Architect F. M. Rattenbury,
city, for the completion of the parliament buildings of British
nbia, ancl early in the present week it is expected tenders will be
for the erection ancl completion of the side wings, respectively
ling on Government and on Menzies streets—two complete ancl
■sing blocks to be devoted exclusively to office and departmental
pses, these being three stories in height with large ancl airy base-
absolutely fireproof, of native granite similar to that employed
existing structures of Parliament square, ancl in thorough archi-
harmony therewith.
The new wings will contain 32,500 square feet of floor space,
Jisive of corridors, stairways, lavatories, etc., divided into inter-
Inunicating apartments of a standard size of 20x26 feet each, ancl
-six in number.
The new library block, tenders for which are now being invited by
ttisement and which are required to be in the hands of the minister
iblic works by noon of the 15th proximo, will be the central archival feature of the present additions, the estimated total cost of
will run from $500,000 to $750,000.
iach of the twin new wings will have four complete floors, the
bents being built considerably higher than those of the existing
Ings, well lighted, dry, airy ancl comfortable for any office purposes
Ihich they may at any future time be requisitioned.   The general
li of the wings is in complete conformity with the architectural
Illustrated in the buildings of today, a special feature being found,
(ver, in the absolutely fireproof character of these wings.   The

Ifhe stock of the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company is probably
lost widely held of any American road, with the exception of the
Tsylvania, which recently reported 64,869 shareholders. There is
(clerable difficulty in learning the number of shareholders of the
Idian railroads ancl in what countries the stock is held. Sir
Shaughnessy has stated that the total number of Canadian
\c shareholders is about 24,000, the number of Canadian holders
2,500. Nearly all the four per cent, preference stock is held in
Britain, Of the common stock, holders in Great Britain have
Iximately 65 per cent., 15 per cent, being held on the Continent,
the remaining 20 per cent, is divided evenly between Canada and
United States.
Srand Trunk shares are held by 54,200 persons, against 52,900 a
ago.   This puts the Grand Trunk second only to the Pennsylvania
load, which has  64,869 shareholders.   The Grand  Trunk  has
174,992 common and £23,173,632 preferred, and, as is well known,
liares are almost exclusively held in England.
Mr. Charles M. Hays, president of the Grand Trunk, states that
seventy-five to ninety per cent, of that road's shareholders are
bits in Great Britain.   Ninety-eight per cent, of the securities of
lanadian Northern Railway are held in the United Kingdom.

Canadian Pacific something more than a fantasy. In those' days Canadian. Pacific Railroad was selling at 58. Belgjan investors, therefore,
have no reason to regret their confidence in., this Canadian enterprise.
Mr. Brunner's clients have invested several millions of dollars in other
Canadian-owned securities, more especially Sao Paulo, Rio, and
Mexican railroads.
German capital has become interested to a small extent in the
Canadian Northern enterprise, arid is likely to become further interested in the near future.
Startling figures were recently given by W. B. Lanagan, assistant
freight traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway. He pointed
out that the three western provinces are not doing their duty and that
the farmers do not realize the seriousness of the conditions in which
they are placing themselves, for vast quantities of foodstuffs are being
imported from the East, from the United States and from abroad.
"Last year," he said, "one firm alone shipped in 1,000 cars of packing
house products to supply the urban cities of the West. In the same
year $10,000,000 worth of horses were brought into Western Canada
from the United States. Again, between 200, and 300 carloads of
mutton were shipped in for th© mining camps of British Columbia, and
a good deal of this came to Winnipeg. Also during the past winter
months Winnipeg imported from Dakota ancl Minnesota $10,000 worth
of milk. Another point to be remembered is that vegetables for Winnipeg and other cities in the West are daily imported from Chicago
and the Twin Cities, and potatoes consumed as far west as Revelstoke
are shipped from as far east as Prince Edward Island. Again, fresh
beef is being imported daily, killed in the abattoirs of Toronto and no
less than seven carloads were brought in one day last week. In other
words, Manitoba, which boasts of its agricultural wealth, does not
produce the stuff to feed its own cities, and even the farmers themselves
are buying farm products. Eggs, butter, cheese and honey are imported from Ontario, Wisconsin and as far south as California. The
province has devoted itself to grain growing until in the older settled
portions of the country woods are choking out the products. Stations,
which formerly shipped a million bushels of grain during a season have
now dropped to between 100,000 and 200,000 bushels, while the acreage
remains the same. On the other hand there is no province where the
land is more fertile and the opportunities as advantageous as in
Manitoba, where Winnipeg is supplying an ever ready market for all
farm products."
The Puget Sound Iron Company has sold the famous magnetite
iron deposits on the northwest coast of Texada Island to Duluth
parties, who are said to have acted on behalf of the United States Steel
corporation. The consideration was $1,000,000, final payments having
been made within the past six weeks. The Duluth syndicate, headed
by ex-Senator Hawkins, has acquired by lease 20,000 acres of iron
lands in Comox district from the E. & N. railway, and has been
developing them for over 18 months. The senator and his associates,
accompanied by a Pittsburg mining expert, returned lately from an
inspection of the holdings ancl state that development to date has given
a tonnage in sight of at least 2,000,000 tons. Work is still in progress.
The impression prevails that the Duluth people also represent some
billion dollar corporation which is credited with the intention of acquiring the principal iron areas in British Columbia with a view to ultimately establishing iron works on this coast.
Mr. Hawkins declined to give any detailed information of his
plans respecting the proposed steel-making plant. The iron deposits
on Texada Island were acquired 35 years ago by the Puget Iron Company and are described as the most extensive in tlie province.
Intimation has been received from Ottawa of the appointment on
the recommendation of the Minister of Agriculture, of a commission
headed by Mr. J. A. Ruddick—a dairy ancl cold storage commissioner—
to conduct a thorough and comprehensive inquiry into conditions,
affecting the fruit-growing industry of Canada and the status of that
industry generally. The commission calls for a report under the
following heads:
"Area ancl extent of land adapted to fruit-growing in the various
"Variety of fruits which have been found to be the most profitable
and successful in several provinces or sub-divisions of some.
"General trend of industry toward concentrating production of
large quantities of standard varieties.
"Difficulties which are likely to be encountered.
"Methods of production.
"Facilities for distribution ancl marketing.
"Possibilities of over-production."
The Kettle Valley Lines havc just awarded to the L. M. Rice Co.
of Vancouver, the contract for the construction of 40 miles of main line
from Bull creek to Summit, near the headwaters of the west fork of
the Kettle river.   The same firm has just completed grading the section
from Midway in the Boundary district, to Bull creek and 20 miles of
track has also been laid.   The distance from Summit to Penticton is
only 35 miles.   A member of Rice & Co. stated that work on the new
work will be rushed without delay.   The next six weeks will be devoted
to establishing construction camps and shipping in grading outfits. The
section connecting with the C.P.R. at Merritt in the Nicola valley and
extending south to the headwaters of the Coldwater river, on Hope
summit, a distance of 40 miles is under construction.   The track has
been laid for over 20 miles. -    .

Vancouver, B. C. THE WEEK, i.SATURDAY; JULY 29, 1911
I As communicative as the Sphinx, Monsieur Maurice de Schlum-
|er, the confidential representative of several French financiers
names on the Bourse carry weight and influence, admitted most
[.tantly, when seen at; the Hotel Vancouver a few days ago, that he
nore than a passing interest in the large land and timber, prpposi-
this province.Which are looking for adequate exploitation. ,
[Mr. de Schlumberger, who, accompanied by Mr. Geo. Barbey,
rumental in negotiating the big Uplands deal, arrived in Vancouver
pt from Paris via Montreal permitted his armour of silence to be
Itrated sufficiently to glean from him that several million dollars
french capital are ready for a financial invasion into the natural
.trees of British Columbia. •    •
"My principals are chiefly interested in land and timber proposi-
|.," informed M. de Schlumberger,1 "and if Lean locate the right
of safe opportunities there will be a speedy influx of French
Ial. We have been attracted to British Columbia for some time
ligh the phenomenal growth of your country, and Vancouver alone
as a monumeht to the ingenuity and enterprise of the men who
i up its population.
|"We, from the country of centuries of development back of them,
help but be amazed by the rapid and marvellous growth of this
baratively new country and we have to rub our eyes occasionally
Invince ourselves that our sight does not play pranks with us when
lng at your great, big, ready-made city. Enthusiasm is very apt
Ln riot with even the conservative traveller who enters your city in
critical frame of mind, and I am not at all surprised at the
jigness displayed by foreign investors to get into the game here.
■"There is one thing, however, that is likely to make business men
land consider and that is this talk about a reciprocity treaty between
Ida and the United States.. Should this treaty be ratified it would
lubtedly have a tendency to keep out foreign capital to a certain
pt as the United States, to the detriment of Canada, would reap
of the benefit of such a pact.   The United States can pretty
f supply all it needs ancl all its wants and Canada would simply
for it an added home-market for its manufacturing and agricul-
surplus, while Canada would find itself holding on to the short
|.f the stick.
['But, of course, these are domestic affairs that Canada must settle
lerself and I am simply speaking from the viewpoint of the foreign
Itor who usually wants to look before he leaps."
The famous Keeley mine, which to 700 shareholders of the Far-
Bank was a forlorn hope, has suddenly loomed up as a genuine
mine and will be developed to the fullest extent for the benefit of
lareholders. It will not be sold unless a quarter of a million is
bd. This means that the shareholders have as an asset over half
('mount invested in the mine by the convicted manager.  ,.-,

Grand Trunk Pacific
'' The construction of the* new transcontinental railway—-the Grand Trunk
Pacific—is to-day opening up new towns that in the very near future will be
large and important-cities. Just as the advent of the pioneer transcontinental
line—The: Canadian Pacific—cpened -and built up divisional points such as
Brandon, Regina, Calgary, Lethbridge, etc., so will the new line of the Grand
Trunk make large divisional points of the towns we now oi'er for sale.
Wc have secured the agency from the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC RAILWAY CO. for the towns mentioned below and the shrewd investors who can
recognize the many advantages for investment in these towns at the prices of
today, will share in the large profits that will accrue as a result of their rapid
development. No other investment is so safe and profitable, and if you want
to get your portion of the wealth Western Canada's development is creating,
take advantage of this opportunity now before it is too late.
Prices of lots in all oi these divisional points are $75, $100, $150, $200, $250
and $300 on easy monthly payments, no interest and no taxes till 1912, with a
5 per cent, discount for cash.
MELVILLE—The first Saskatchewan divisional point on thc G. T. P. and
the largest new town on the line between Winnipeg and Edmonton. Located
in a rich agricultural district, an important railroad and distributing centre.
Melville bids fair to become one of the important cities of Western Canada.
WATROUS—The mecca of thc health seeker, situate near the shores _ of
the famous Little Manitou Lake, and in the centre of one of the finest farming
sections of Saskatchewan.
BIGGAR—The opportunity of opportunities, located in the heart of a
wonderfully rich and fertile agricultural district, and with railway facilities that
guarantee a future, being not only one of the most important Grand Trunk
Pacific divisional points on the main line between Winnipeg and Edmonton, but
is the junction of the branch lines of the Grand Trunk Pacific to Battleford
and Calgary, which will be hurried to completion at an early date. The C. P. R.
runs through Biggar, and all C.  P. R. trains stop there.
TOFIELD—The terminus of the branch line from Calgary, situate near the
shores of the Beaver Lake. Thc discovery of natural gas and of clay, and having
at its door several square miles underlaid with lignite coal, promise thc development at Tofield of important manufacturing industries.
EDSON—The last prairie divisional point on main line of Grand Trunk
Pacific, and the gateway to the Peace River Country. Rich in natural resources,
Edson lots fulfill every requirement for safe and profitable investment.
REMEMBER THE PRICES, $75.00 to $300.00, and terms of one-tenth cash
and balance in nine equal monthly payments—no interest.

Lnd directing the currents of
(eastward across the ocean to
pecial gain of England. Inci-
By, our acceptance of the agree-
Iwould also destroy the hope
British Tories to establish a
vail about the markets of Eng-
vith the avowed purpose of re-
American trade.
Milwaukee    Free    Press  says
do England's Imperialists ap-
Ic the sequel of such a pact, a
jig union of North American in-
redounding to the common ad-
lient  of both  Canada  and the
States, and especially to thc
latter's ascendency at the expense of
Great Britain.
We can do no more than indicate
the great significance of the Canadian pact to the all-American ideal,
to the future prosperity and ascendency of this Republic.
To head off Canada from direct
trade with Europe is the ambition
which moves the Philadelphia Ledger:
The question is whether we shall
shut ourselves off from this new domain by artificial walls and force its
trade across the Atlantic, or shall
establish such relations with it now
that its growing wealth shall contribute with ours to the common development of the country. It is not
a question of which side will make
most of the bargain. The details of
the agreement are trivial, compared
with the continental sentiment that
underlies it.
"First Alliance, and then Possibly
The Cincinnati Enquirer anticipates
the political alienation of Canada
from Britain:—
The fears of the British as to the
political results of reciprocity with
the United States are soundly based,
for with the closer commercial relations which will result there will
come a unity of political sentiment
between the ■ people of Canada and
those of our own country. The people of Canada have ever been friends
with us, and as the years go by that
friendship will become stronger, until it produces, first, alliance, and then
possibly union.
Destruction of the Imperial Ideal
is foretold by the St. Paul Pioneer
The dream of a federated British
Colonial Empire closed against us by
preferential duties and trade agreements is vanished forever if this reciprocity agreement is consummated.
And St. Paul business men, writing
to Senator Clapp, of Minnesota, have
a similar belief:—
Time is of paramount importance.
England favours an Imperial federation, as opposed to Canadian reciprocity, and if Imperial federation is
accomplished we believe the opportunity of Canadian reciprocity will
be forever lost.
The New York American looks for
a cutting loose from European politics:—
"In ratifying this trade agreement,
we should understand, therefore, that
we are settling a world problem, and
settling it right. British Imperialism
will wane in consequence. But American trade routes will run along
lines that were ordained by nature.
And the prosperity of the Western
Continent will receive an immense impetus through a definite, a final disentanglement from the intrigues of
European politics.."
The United States and Canada arc
stupidly separated according to the
Detroit Free Press:—
The principal merit of the agreement is political and social. It will,
it is hoped—and confidently hoped—
be the beginning of the end of the
stupid separation of two halves of a

The following condescending discourse from the Washington Star
would be amusing if it were not so
solemnly worded. It is only a different way of saying "From the Pole

Minneapolis Journal, is now the
'Washington phrase," to express the
views of the foreign diplomats as to
the manifest destiny of the United

(Written specially for The Week by
J. D. Campbell)
As the time approaches when the
electors will be called upon to declare for or against the "Reciprocity
Pact" with the United States, it
would be wise to consider the means
by which this question has again
become a factor in Canadian elections
from which it has been excluded
since 1891 when the Liberals were
defeated on the cry of "Commercial
Union," and to remember that if it
were not for the determined opposition given to it by Conservatives and
Liberals both in the House and
through the country, the measure
would be forced upon an astounded
country by a Liberal majority in the
Commons. Ever since the Liberals
came into power Canadian Nationalism has been the subject of a good
deal of discussion and the author of
the movement is so well known that
Laurierism and Nationalism are convertible terms.
The idea of making an Independent Nation of Canada, or as Laurier
puts it "a Nation within a Nation,"
sounds very well from a political platform to the accompaniment of Sir
Wilfred's flowery phrases and protestations of loyalty, but most of us
would like to know what it is all
Why should we in one breath spout

When we are able to defend our
shores and our commerce without the

right to speak of Canadian Nationalism.

our place among the Nations, we can
say to the old Motherland, for your
help, guidance and protection in the
past centuries we are grateful and
are now ready to stand beside you as
the eldest born and take our share
of your burdens.
The lirst practical outcome of Sir
Wilfred's desire to shine as an Independent Canadian Statesman was the
making of a treaty with France,
which after several amendments and
a lengthy sojourn in the French
Chamber, was finally passed in the
Commons on November 3rd, 1900,
ancl one effect of thc agreement was
to  give   to   France  and  other   most
favoured nations, the benefit of the
British preference on a number of
The result of Sir Wilfred's virgin
effort at treaty-making was however
a good deal more far-reaching than
he expected, for when the American
Congress met in March, 1909, the
question came up whether Canada as
a result of her French treaty should
not be put on the maximum tariff
list which would become effective on
April 1st, 1910. The decision lay
with the President.
Now let us look at Sir Wilfred's
last decisive utterance in regard to
our relations with the United States.
On July 31, 1903, in presenting the
G. T. P. bill to the House Sir Wilfred
made an eloquent appeal to Canadians
to stand commercially as well as politically free of the United States and
made use of these words.
"The best and most effective way
to maintain friendship with the American Republic is to be absolutely independent of them."
I am quite sure that on this occasion at any rate Sir Wilfred's utterances were perfectly sincere, and that
his present "volte face" which has
earned him the soubriquet of Mr.
Mr. Facing-both-ways is due to the
exigencies of the party, in other
words he is sacrificing what he knows
to be the interests of his country to
those of his party.
The Liberal Government at first put
on a bold front over the situation
with Congress arising out of the
French Treaty. Speaking at Strath-
roy on November 6th, 1909, for the
Government, Mr. Graham, Minister of
Railways, worked up tremendous enthusiasm by saying: "There will be
no stampeding of the Government or
the Parliament of Canada. We will
proceed in a dignified manner, finding
new markets and so legislating that
the results will be in the interests of
Canada regardless of the United
States." Fine words, but only words
and idle words, for the Government
did not have the courage of its convictions and Taft's waving of the big
stick, his big bluff, for which the
French treaty gave him an opening
led to very different results from the
policy enunciated by Mr. Graham as
that of the Government.
On December 7th, President Taft
said to Congress that he hoped there
would be no Tariff war and early
in the year the issue was disposed of
by a compromise.
We all remember what that compromise was. It was the first tinkering of the Tariff which was followed later ou by the "Reciprocity
Pact" which has given the United
States Congress and Senate such
lovely opportunities of twisting the
Lion's tail and has brought forth a
perfect deluge of annexation sentiment from end to end of that country.
When Sir Wilfred on the floor of
the House said that Reciprocity proposals had first come from thc United
States, if not telling a direct falsehood, he was at least drawing a decidedly strong herring across the trail.
While Reciprocity has been a dead
issue in Canada since 1891 there havc
been numerous and constant efforts
in the States to make it an issue in
politics and every year for at least
ten years past there havc been associations and meetings in the interest
of trade relations with Canada.
On .April 23rd, 1910, a conference
was called in Detroit for the discussion of the proposed "Reciprocity
Pact" and Canadian Boards of Trade
were invited to send delegates to
which none of them responded. Mr.
J. A. Macdonald, however, the Editor
of the Toronto Globe, attended presumably on behalf of the Government, as he has been closely associated with the Reciprocity business
and addressed the meeting on the advantages of peace, lower tariff,  etc.,
and a unanimous resolution was
passed for the immediate opening of
Reciprocity negotiations with Canada.
Rather a contrast between Mr. Graham's expressions on the subject in
Canada in November and Mr. Macdonald's in the United States in the
following April.
That annexation is the ultimate aim
of any Reciprocity agreement as far
as the United States are concerned
there can, I think, be no reasonable
doubt. The speeches of numbers of
their most prominent men teem with
direct allusions to it. I give three of
them here but they could be multi-
pjlied a hundred fold and would fill a
In conversation nine out of ten
Americans will remark: "What a
good thing it would be for this country if you were annexed to the
States!" and I have no doubt that
most of them actually believe it
would be. There is certainly no
doubt that it would be a very good
thing for them.
President J. G. Schurman of Cornell
University, speaking on June 20th,
1903, said:
"I cannot believe that Mr. Chamberlain's plan for the fiscal and political unification of the British Empire will command the consent of
Canada and if Canada declines to aid

responsibility of the British Isles, if
she finally decides to hold aloof, if
she concludes to throw in her lost

listening to me will see the time when
Canada will become an integral part
of the United States. If the plan of
the most adventurous of British politicians for Colonial preference is carried out a Tariff War would be inaugurated between Great Britain and

politician will seek to set Canada up
as a great rival to us, an agricultural
rival. Out of that will arise conditions, discussions and considerations
that will end in the union of the two
On April 29th, 1908, Governor
Johnston of Minnesota said at Detroit:

To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—Many Conservatives in this
city will thank you for the timely
rebuke administered in your issue of
the 22nd inst. to the Editor of the
Colonist. Any Editor posing as a representative of Conservative politicians and policies who treats a
change in the Tariff and the settled
policy of the country involving, as
such a change will, such tremendous
and potent forces tending to disrupt
our trade relations with thc rest of
the British Empire, is deserving of
the severest censure from that great
party.    While    the    Daily Times  is 10

'l really I am so little interested in the

Now, sir, that the Senate of the
United States have passed the Reciprocity Pact one object of which is
to encompass a larger share of the
trade of the Prairie and B. C. Provinces for its railways, it may be
of interest and news to many of your
readers to know that long before the
C. P. R. was built a committee of the
Senate of the United States presented a report to the Senate on Pacific
Railways, dated the 19th February,
1869, containing the following significant passage:—
"The line of the North Pacific Road
runs for fifteen hundred miles near
the British possessions, and when
built will drain the agricultural products of the rich Saskatchewan and
Red River Districts east of the
Mountains, and the Gold Country on
the Fraser, Thompson and Kootenay
Rivers west of the Mountains. From
China (Canton) to Liverpool it is
1500 miles nearer by the 49th parallel
of latitude than by the way of San
Francisco and New York. This advantage in securing the overland from
Asia will not be thrown away by the
English unless it is taken away by
our first building the North Pacific
road, establishing mercantile agencies
at Puget Sound, fixing mercantile
capital there and getting possession
on land and on the ocean of all the
machinery of the new commerce between Asia and Europe. The opening by us first of a Northern Pacific
Railroad seals the destiny of the British possessions west of the ninety-
first meridian. They will become so
Americanized in interests and feelings that they will be in effect severed from the New Dominions and
the question of their annexation will
be but a question of time."
The above excerpt, taken from a
report submitted to the Senate of the
United States in 1869 acted like a
spark to the powder, and stirred the
Imperial blood of those great Canadians, Lord Strathcona, Sir Charles
Tupper, the late Sir J. A. Macdonald
and that great French Canadian, Sir
George Etienne Cartier. They refused the money offered them by American capitalists with whicii to build
the C. P. R., and bent their energies
in other directions, secured the means
to build what was acknowledged to
be the greatest railway in the world,
and so kept faith with the Government of this Province in linking B.
C. up to the Eastern Provinces.
The Daily Times, in a recent issue,
held Mr. Borden, the Opposition
leader in the House of Commons, up
to ridicule for his so-called want of
policy. Of course they quoted an
eastern paper as their authority. (The
Colonist allowed it to pass without
saying a word in his defence). But
let us listen, sir, to what the Hon.
Edward Blake, a great eastern Liberal, said about this Province, when
thc Bill for the construction of the
C. P. R. was being discussed. He
boldly moved "that to keep this country from ruin the British Columbia
end of the road should be abandoned."
jjj 1 What did he care ahout Eastern Ca
nada breaking faith with the West.
The Liberal premier, the late Alex.
McKenzie, gloried in the fact that
he was able to delay the construction
of the C. P. R. This is what he said
to his constituency in Sarnia, Ontario: "One of the matters which
will be brought up will be the C.
P. R. You are aware that during the
discussion on the Bill I objected to
compplete the railway in ten years.
Nearly three years of that time have
elapsed and we are bound by this
contract to finish it within seven years
and three months." What a lament
for a Liberal premier to make! Had
the Liberal policy of those days been
continued we might not even now
have had a through service. Ancl
even the present premier of the
Dominion moved a resolution against
the construction of the west end of
the Canadian  Pacific Railway.     Mr.
Laurier, as he was known in those
clays, did not figure much then nor
for years after, not until the mantle
of Sir John A. Macdonald had fallen
on him together with that great
man's policy, known as the National
Policy, a policy very little different
now from that obtaining when Sir
Wilfred became premier, although
the cry was: "Put the Liberal party
in power and we will give you western farmers free trade in all your
implements and machinery." So the
farmers were quieted and placed the
Liberals in power, but practically
nothing was done till the next election was near at hand, then the cry
was, "We will build you the Hudson's Bay Railway which will put you
in direct touch with the best market
in the world—your own market in
thc Old Country." So the farmers,
feeling the lump in the throat, gulped
down the medicine. Years went on;
the duty still remained on the farmers' implements; there was no Hudson's Bay Railway. But the farmers
are long suffering. Another election
came and ou the strength of the
promise to build the railway sure this
time the bait goes down; the Liberals
are returned, the many promises are
broken, no reduction of duties and no
The wily politicians at Ottawa forgot all about the farmers in the west.
But not so Mr. Farmer; he remembers the many broken promises of
Grit politicians and Sir Wilfred and
his followers begin to think of the
day of reckoning, so the poor farmers
must be baited again. "At all costs,"
says the Liberal machine at Ottawa,
"we must get the farmers' vote; our
game of fast and loose is nearly over,
so we will reduce the duties 2^ per
cent, on farm produce and give our
people the privilege of competing
against ten times their number in the
markets of the States. But this will
induce the American Government to
give us large concessions in favour
of a few lumbermen. But we must
bend all our energies to persuade the
farmers we are their benefactors and
to secure their votes."
It is impossible, sir, to conceive a
more fast and loose policy than that
which the present administration as
handed out to the people of Western
Canada. Sir Wilfred and Liberal orators come west and try and persuade
the farming community that the
greater the glut of farm produce on
the market the better the prices obtaining. But the producers are not
quite so gullible and feel sure that
the Laurier Government are only
baiting the farmers again to secure
their votes in the coming election.
For when Sir Wilfred returns east
after stumping the western provinces,
preaching Free Trade, he is promptly made aware of his position by the
manufacturing interests of the East.
He immediately forgets his Free
Trade speeches to the farmers and
assures the eastern manufacturers
that he and his docile followers in
the Cabinet have no intention whatever of introducing any legislation
tending to the reduction of duties on
manufactured articles. So the policy
to be applied to the west is not goocl
enough for Eastern Canada.
Sir Wilfred says "Free Trade,"
when in the farming communities and
"Protection" when in the industrial
centres. A premier who plays fast
and loose as described is not deserving the confidence of the country.
The talk of being a great statesman
when boiled clown simply means to
adopt parrot-like deliverances and secure the largest number of votes at
elections honestly, if possible. But
get the majority by any means. The
greater the political juggler the
greater the applause, but the time
comes when such politics fail to
please, then the reaction.
One Big Man
Personal  Recollections of the  Late
Superintendent F. S. Hussey
(Written specially for The Week by
Walter B. Anderson)
It is a generally conceded tact that
every man of ability, of strong personality ancl sterling merit, must have
enemies, and per contra, those who
have no enemies may be of most
cheerful, lovable disposition, but de
cidedly without brains. The late
Provincial Police Superintendent was
a marked exception to this rule, being, if we exclude criminals, extremely popular with all classes, and
liked by all with whom he came in
contact. So much so, that it is safe
to assume that any enemies he may
have had are either in the prisons, or
else ought to be.
Mr. Hussey' first came into public
notice as a provincial constable in
one of the interior districts where he
carried out his multifarious duties as
police officer, tax collector, etc., in so
intelligent and impartial a manner,
that he was made Superintendent of
Provincial Police upon the retirement
of Mr. H. B. Roycroft.
The northern portion of Vancouver
Island, and the adjacent Gulf Islands
and the mainland opposite, was at
that time the haunt of many criminals who, forced to Hy from other
parts, made their rendezvous in that
portion of the country, which at that
time was peopled by Indians and
scattered logging camps, quite innocent of police protection, and in communication with the outer world only
by means of occasional tug boats.
Mr. Roycroft, himself an extremely
capable officer, had previously been
successfully engaged in bringing to
justice certain Indian perpetrators of
peculiarly atrocious and baffling murders, notably the Seabird case ancl
the Miller and Dring affair.
After Mr. Hussey's succession to
the office, Indian murders had almost entirely ceased in that section,
but the very worst type of white men
took up the trade at that point, and
much lawlessness was perpetrated
among the thousand islets ancl channels of the coast. Although several
deaths were at various times reported
from that section under suspicious
circumstances, it was not until the
O'Connor murder, by Kennedy, on
Read Island, that there was a clear
case to work upon, and it was during the development of that case that
the writer was first thrown intimately in contact with the late Superintendent.
It may not be generally known that
three weeks elapsed between the date
of the murder, and the location of
the murderer in Ramsay Ann. Three
weeks of unsparing and painstaking
search of every shore between Seymour Narrows and Alert Bay, and
between Read Island and Port Neville. This preliminary hunt was carried on under the command of Chief
Stewart, of Nanaimo, Mr. Hussy directing, as well as possible, from Victoria.
It was when Mr. Stewart and his
posse were pulling from the steamer
to the shore, at the first attempt to
arrest the man that the real clanger
occurred. Kennedy, from shore cover,
firing on and hitting one of the boats
full of constables, himself protected
from the hail of bullets sent in return.
It was a few days later that Mr.
Hussey arrived on the scene with
some specials ancl right then came a
chance which showed the character of
the man, and which brought out a
trait which throughout his career has
been in a great measure responsible
for his success, for wherever he went,
his men always implicitly trusted him.
Not only trusted his sound judgment,
but also his fairness, ancl coolness of
decision. It came out thus—a certain newspaper correspondent, either
from sheer malice, or from a desire to
fake up a bit of "yellow" for the
benefit of his Victoria readers, sent
in an article severely criticising the
officers who had been engaged in the
preliminary expedition to Read Island,
upon the first receipt of the news
of the murder. Papers containing the
article, which was most villainously,
and undeservedly abusive, reached
the camp by Mr. Hussey's boat, and
was shown the writer by another ocn-
stable. As I had been in charge of
that preliminary expedition I lost no
time in seeking him out, ancl showing him the article. His answer was
characteristic of the man: "I had of
course intended to speak to you of
it, but from enquiries I made on the
road up, and from Chief Stewart since
my arrival here, I must tell you that
I shall personally see that the matter be fully rectified by the newspaper. Please do not trouble yourself about it any more." And it was
What man in the world is there
who would not blindly follow a superior who he knows will take instant
steps to ferret out the truth or untruth of a report calculated to reflect
upon his honour? And as I said before, it was the knowledge of his cool
impartiality, of his certain recognition of merit, that caused his men to
implicitly trust his judgment, and
cheerfully do his bidding, under most
strenuous* circumstances.
Of the closing scenes of Kennedy's
capture, there has been an incorrect
account already published. At the
risk of tiring the reader, I shall give
the correct one. After the murderer's
escape from the attempted arrest
when first discovered, he crossed a
range of mountains which divides
Ramsay Arm from Calm Channel, and
was ultimately discovered some distance up the mountain-side at the
mouth of Bute Inlet. Here his camp
was surrounded, he having taken to
the brush upon hearing our approach.
Leaving four of us in ambush, Supt.
Hussey, with Officer McKinnon,
started back for the shore, for the
purpose of collecting the men left
at other points and concentrating his
forces in that particular neck of
woods. Shortly after his departure,
Kennedy appeared, creeping quietly
through the brush. The plan then,
was to allow him to reach a clear
space close to his camp, but one of
the specials, either from a misconception of the pre-arranged plan,
or from nervous tension, discharged
his rifle, ancl the man quickly disappeared behind the slope of a small
Hearing the shooting, Mr. Hussey
and McKinnon returned, and we then
learned that just after leaving us,
some 200 yards or so away in the
timber, Officer McKinnon noticed a
man's head projecting from behind
a tree, off to one side of the route
they were taking. He quietly told
Mr. Hussey what he had seen, telling
him to keep straight on without taking notice, as it was evidently Kennedy, ancl he had a decided advantage
should they make an attempt to arrest him there. They therefore passed
out of sight, and then waited a while.
Meanwhile, Kennedy came to camp,
with the result as given. Leaving McKinnon, in place of one of the specials, Mr. Hussey again started for
the beach, and it was while he was
on the boat, rounding up the other
men, that the murderer finally gave
himself up to the four of us left in
ambush. This is the true story of
Kennedy's capture.
For Mr. Hussey's cool ancl intelligent management of the affair, and
the later systematic collecting of evidence, there can be nothing but the
highest praise. His motto was, "First
catch your man, then gather up all
stray ends of evidence.
The murder of John Green and F.
Taylor, at Green's ranch on Savary
Island, by Hugh Linn, differed greatly from the Kennedy affair. Whereas
the latter was thc outcome of a drinking bout, (to which fact Kennedy
owes his defeating of the gallows)
the former was a double murder,
committed in cold blood, ancl under
most despicable conditions.
Green, an old man, ancl so crippled
with rheumatism that hc moved about
with difficulty, with the aid of two
sticks, lived in his shack on Savary.
He kept a little trading store in a
building detached from the house,
farmed a few acres, and kept some
cows, chickens, etc. To assist him
as he grew helpless, he got Taylor to
live with him, ancl the two bachelors
lived an uneventful life on the little
One evening Linn ancl his klootch-
tnan came to the Island in a skiff,

men were at supper in their cabin,
Linn entered with a rifle, engaged
Green in conversation for a while,
then turned as if to leave.
At the door he faced about quickly,
shot first one and then the other,
fired several shots through the walls
of the cabin to make it appear as if
the men had had a fight, placed a
shotgun in Taylor's hands, and coolly
rifled the place, turning his attention

Principal, Miss Barton
Capital—$40,000 furnished by Bonds
at SXA per cent, interest by the Trustees of the Pearce Estate, being $30,-
000 in cash and $10,000 the valuation
of nearly two acres of land as described above.
Security—Land and School Buildings valued at $40,000, and a Guarantee Fund of $15,000.
Parents and others willing to sign
their names to this building guarantee fund are requested to notify thc
Hon. Secretary of the Committee,
care oflice of D. R. Ker, Esq., at their
earliest convenience.
With the death of the two Miss
Fenwicks, St. Margaret's School
would have come to an end had not
Miss Barton signified her willingness
to assume control, and had not the
parents at a meeting held on April
iSth given their support. At that
meeting, Mr. Fenwick formally handed over the goodwill and property
of the school to Miss Barton; the
[parents present bound themselves to
pay any loss incurred by her in reopening the school for the Summer
Term, and a Committee was elected
to consider plans for the future. Miss
Barton thereupon made emergency
arrangements for a teaching staff, the
school was duly reopened, and the
Summer Term was safely tided over
without any call whatever upon the
guarantee so kindly offered by the
The buildings in which St. Margaret's is housed at present are poorly adapted for the purposes of a
school, and it has been the business
of the Committee elected on April
18 to formulate a project for the purchase of land and thc erection of
school buildings that should be
worthy of the city that Victoria has
become. A scheme of this nature has
already proved most successful in
establishing a boys' school on a creditable scale, and there is every proof
that the building of a good girls'
school in Victoria has become both
necessary and financially possible.
For the purpose of carrying out
this idea, an arrangement' was entered into with Miss Barton whereby the committee should arrange for
the building of a new school which,
after completion, should be handed
over to Miss Barton, subject to conditions  outlined  below.
From the Executors of thc Pearce
Estate the Committee wcre able to
secure the offer of nearly two acres
of land situated at the corner of Fort
and Fern Streets—an area that would
provide for playing ground, tennis
courts and the open air needs of the
modern school, in a convenient locality, easily reached by car. The
most up-to-date ideas in school construction were embodied in plans for
a school building and a boarders' residence supplied by Mr. Rattenbury.
Bids were called for, and it was
found that the building could be
erected and furnished for a sum of
$30,000. Mr. Pemberton, acting for
the Executors of the Pearce Estate,
offered to provide this money. The
only condition imposed was that parents and others should subscribe their
names to a guarantee fund, only to
be called upon should this attempt
to found a girls' school in Victoria
end in failure.
The Committee now invite parents
and others interested, either in the
cause of education or in the progress
of our city, to come forward and subscribe their names to the guarantee
fund of St. Margaret's School building. Thirty persons are needed—each
to guarantee (but not to pay down)
five hundred dollars. The financial
position of the school has been examined; there is every evidence that
both running expenses and interest
can be safely met; and the Committee are convinced that guarantors run
no appreciable risk. In the operation
of the school all surplus of profit,
after running expenses and fixed
charges have been paid, will be devoted to reducing the indebtedness
and, of course, the liability of the
guarantors. Annually as each reduction of indebtedness is made, there
will be a drawing of lots among the
latter to decide whose guarantee is
to be partly extinguished on account
of this reduction.
As soon as the formality of securing signatures to the guarantee fund
has been completed, the building of
the new school can be begun at once.
The land is offered, the most of the
money is ready in the bank, Miss
Barton is arranging for the enlargement and reorganization of the teaching staff, and before the winter the
Committee confidently expect that a
fine up-to-date girls' school in active
operation will be one of the attractive
features of Victoria.

Are you thinking of buying a motor
car? If you are, look for these points:
You want a car that is built of
strong material to stand the wear and
tear; a car of such mechanical construction that it can be relied upon
at all times, and, if you can get it for
the money you are willing to spend,
you want a car embodying the most
approved ideas in its construction.
But don't stop there! What the car
will cost to operate is really just as
important. This cost of operation is
called efficiency. Nowadays a man
who gets results is only past the half-
mile post on the way to making goocl,
His success must yet be measured by
the cost of his accomplishment. Thus
it is in mechanics, the real efficiency
of any mechanism must be measured
by its  cost  of operation.
We know of but one car, that when
measured by the real meaning of
efficiency, makes goocl. This car is
the White Gasoline Car. It secures
an average of twenty miles or more
to each gallon of gasoline. In proof
of this statement, we herein produce
one of the many thousand letters received by the White Company:
Lexiri'gton, Ky.,
October 10, 1910.
The White Company,
Cleveland, Ohio.
Gentlemen,—I have my White
Gasoline with me here at Lexington,
where it is greatly admired, as it has
been all through the Grand circuit.
I have driven this car 6,000 miles
over the route of the Grand circuit
and have had no trouble whatever.
I find that it is faster than we dare
drive it, ancl the gasoline bills amount
to  almost  nothing.
We drove the car from Cleveland
to Syracuse, the speedometer showing
356 miles, and used thirteen gallons
of gasoline, an average of twenty-
seven and one-third miles to the gallon. Is this not a record? You may
be skeptical about this mileage, but
both of us are willing to make affidavit to its truth. Of course, we
drove on fourth speed most of the
way and the roads were good.
We wish you every success in the
sale of your cars, and don't believe
any car could be better.
(Signed)     DAVID SHAW,
To the Editor of The Week:
Sir,—The Liberal papers seem to
never tire of discussing the knighting
of Max Aitken as they call him.
Now we have another Canadian
knight created in the person of Senator Jones who used to be ordinary
Lyman M. Jones until he was appointed to the Senate, then became
L. Melvin Jones, and is now Sir L.
Melvin Jones. Now what has Mr.
Jones done more than Mr. Aitken to
deserve the honour? It is said that
Mr. Aitken contributed liberally to
the Unionist campaign and was recommended by Mr. Balfour. Now
Mr. Jones is a Canadian Senator and
was not likely to be in touch with
Mr. Asquith. It is therefore natural
to suppose that his recommendation
would come from Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. Now on what grounds
would Sir Wilfrid recommend him;
he has never shown any degree of
statesmanship; he has never been a
public benefactor unless you would
call bleeding the farmer to the last
dregs for farm machinery a benefaction, and by the way the
Liberals while in opposition were
strong on free machinery for the
farmer but now even in their reciprocity agreement the poor, downtrodden farmer only receives a reduction of 2J--2 per cent, on his implements. Now what is the inference,
L. M. Jones was made a Senator by
the Laurier Government; Senator
Jones is president of the Massey Harris Implement Manufacturing Company, the largest trust of its kind in
Canada; Senator Jones is neither
noted for statesmanship or public
benefactions, nor anything else to entitle him to knighthood. Is it not
therefore as reasonable to suppose
that if Mr. Aitken purchased his title
by contributing to the Unionist fund
in Great Britain that Senator Jones,
having no better claim on the public,
must have done some little favour for
Sir Wilfrid and the Liberal party to
enable him to retain the duty on
his agricultural implements and receive a knighthood in the bargain.
Yours truly,
To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—Could I induce you to
publish the letter I give underneath?
I sent it to both of the daily papers
thinking it would have a goocl effect
to give immediate publicity to this
disgraceful cruelty; an object lesson
to young children they could never
forget. But it was treated with indifference, as no notice was taken of
my protest.
"May I ask what should be clone to
prevent recurrences of such dreadful
cruelty as I witnessed within the city
boundaries of Victoria?
"The front legs of a living calf were
tied together and the poor little creature was dragged on its back for
about fifty yards over stones, on
rough grounds ancl thrown into a
conveyance on the public street.
"I regret to say this sickening exhibition of crueutl took place in full
view of some children."
The children I have referred to,
being a little distance away, thought
the calf was being killed, when
dragged and chucked on its back over
stbnes in such  an inhuman  way.
In keeping with.this callousness a
man passing by jokingly remarked:
"Don't worry kiddies, it won't spoil
thc meat." I now earnestly appeal
to The Week for a few words of sympathy in this good cause.

Did you ever have a merchant tell you: "This cabinet is better than the "Hoosier" ?
They do it—often. You see, only one merchant in a town can sell the "Hoosier" Cabinet. The
price is fixed at the factory. Every other merchant knows what it is. A lot of cabinet
factories sell their entire output to merchants who would rather have the Hoosier if they could.
These merchants have to sell some kind of Kitchen Cabinet. It is not necessary for these
other makers to be particular about quality if they meet the price. Many of them are not
particular. It is not the other merchants' fault. He would sell you a better cabinet than the
Hoosier if he could get it. He can't. To protect yourself see that the Hoosier trade mark is
on your Kitchen Cabinet.
See What Goes with the "Hoosier"
The Hoosier Kitchen Cabinet gives more for your money than any other cabinet.

Every style of,dress is worn if it
is becoming, and sufficiently close to
the hips to outline them. There is,
however, every reason to believe that
we are nearing the end of the very
tight dress. The Court functions in
London have certainly influenced Paris
fashions. On all sides we see colour,
and if not in the complete dress for
street wear we notice it in bands, underskirts or buttons. For instance, in
the plain classical tailor costume of
blue serge there is even a gay note at
the foot and on one side of the skirt
in a narrow band of pale blue, red or
green cloth, the same shade introduced upon the collar and cuffs. This
is very simply done. The skirt is cut
the exact length required, and a wide
hem taken from the length allows of
a band of colour beneath this hem
that continues in the same width, not
more than an inch and a half, up the
side of the skirt, finished in three
places with a small batch of dark buttons. Colour upon the jacket is seen
in either the revers or the back of
the collar, and upon half of the cuff.
Fringe also trims our* tailor suits.

A supplementary hat trunk seen in
one of the hat shops is particularly
interesting. It not only holds six
hats, but six pairs of shoes, as well
as gloves, veils, shirtwaists. The
main part which measures 25}^ by
8 inches, accommodates six hats, one
on each of the four sides and one at
the top and bottom. These are firmly held to the side by the four tapes
which cross and tie over the hat. Underneath the bottom hat shelf is a
double tray—the upper divided into
compartments for gloves, veils, handkerchiefs, etc., while the lower holds
shirtwaists or soft, light underclothes.
Beneath this trap is still another, velvet lined, with partitions for six pairs
of shoes. This trunk is the very best
that can be found being strong and
wonderfully complete.

The girl who is long of limb and of
slender grace is fortunate, The
straight skirts, close-fitting waists,
and jaunty hats are all made for her.
Everything but the thinnest of the
gowns is made as plain fitting ancl
scanty as tailormades themselves.
The linens, shantungs ancl even such
thin silks as the foulards and surahs
all follow the same lines.
The lines ancl shantungs, by the
way, are smart with the new white
wash net waists with embroidered
spots done in a colour. A lovely linen
in a dull soft shade of blue had a
white net waist with black embroidered spots which were outlined with
the blue. And another waist of the
same wash net which went with a
rose-coloured shantung gown had
black embroidered spots done on
disks of the rose-coloured linen
whicii rimmed the black clots all
around. With this gown there went
a short Directoire coat with wide
black satin revers, which were wide
open at the front to show the spotted
blouse. Entire gowns arc being
made of this embroidered net, and
they are often trimmed with linen in
the shade of the clot or they have
satin coats and are trimmed with satin. Jaunty linen coats are used also
with such gowns. The spotted net
blouses are being used with all classes
of tailormades.

"striking" as a remedy for all industrial,
social and economic ills. It is only sufficient to announce this to secure the unqualified condemnation of all thinking men.
The Industrial Workers could not have
come to a worse city, for their own purposes, than Victoria. Everything is prosperous ; no willing worker is idle; wages
are good, and it is doubtful if on the face
of the earth there is another community
whicii has more reason to be contented.
A "striking" propaganda will receive little
encouragement here, and the truculent gentlemen who have come for the purpose of
annexing a percentage of the earnings of
the industrious working-men of Victoria
will probably return whence they came
both sadder and wiser.
TENDER SOLICITUDE—The Victoria Times has developed a tender
solicitude for the British workman
which is as unexpected as it is gratifying.
It declares that "if Mr. Borden were elected he would place in the hands of the Tories
of the United Kingdom an argument in
favour of taxing the foodstuffs of the
working-people of Great Britain, and this
is something which no loyal Canadian
would be willing to do." After arriving
at this amazing conclusion from which the
Times declares that there is no escape, it
winds up with the following "ad captan-
dum" appeal. "The intelligent working-
men of Canada will never endorse a policy
which will fleece their British felolws while
at the same time keeping up the high tariffs
on their own food-stuffs." This is a new
light on the absorbing topic of the hour
ancl is certainly an ingenious suggestion.
The logical conclusion is that it would be
all right to fleece the "British fellows" if
the Canadian tariff on food-stuffs was lowered. Which about represents the value of
the Times' solicitude for the.British working-man.
issue of Tuesday last the editor of
the Colonist wrote three-quarters of
a' column on the relation between newspapers
and their readers, which is well worth reading as a unique symposium on perfect contentment. Towards the close of the article
the editor said in effect that his sole object
in writing editorials is to assist his readers
to right conclusions; that he never feels
called upon to express any opinion on any
subject without giving fully the reasons upon which that opinion is based and finally
that if the Colonist has any influence
(which he too modestly declares he sometimes thinks it has) he attributes it wholly
to this right method of treating public men
ancl public questions. Bearing this in mind
will the editor of the Colonist state frankly
why he refused to publish the facts about
the Lobnitz dredge when requested to do so
by the properly constituted authority in
order that his readers might "judge for
election is coming; there is no
doubt about it, ancl it must be a
Federal election because the local Liberal
organ is adopting its most illiberal style,
and in order to further Federal interests
is concentrating its attack upon the Provincial Government. This course illustrates
the logical (?) attitude of the Times. It
matters not that it has fallen clown on every
charge it has brought against the local
Administration; it matters not that it has
to go back seven years to tabulate its list
of charges, and it assuredly matters not
that Mr. R. W. Ross, the Minister of Lands,
has inaugurated and is expeditiously carrying out a broad-minded policy for the settlement of Provincial lands by "bona fide"
settlers. In fact it would be a fairly shrewd
guess that it is Mr. Ross' successful and
popular administration which is responsible
for the frenzy of Mr. Templeman's mouth-
organ. Yes, in spite of all Liberal assurances to the contrary, an election must be
at hand.
IS THIS FORGERY—A fortnight ago
The Week published a letter by Mr.
Alan Dumbleton and subsequently a
reply by Mr. W. B. Anderson on the abuse
of fishing privileges at Cowichan Bay.
These letters were addressed to The Week
and published at the request of the writers.
On Thursday last the Victoria Times printed both letters verbatim, omitting to accredit
their original publication to The Week and
carefully eliminating the title of The Week
from the ascription. Thus instead of the
letters appearing as addressed "To the
Editor of The Week" as in the original,
they appeared addressed simply "To the
Editor." The person responsible on the
staff of the Times had the hardihood to
eliminate "The Week," but lacked the courage to insert "The Times," leaving the ascription in such form as to suggest that the
letters were addressed to the Times. Comment is unnecessary, especially in view of
the high moral ground taken by the Times
with respect to alterations in original documents.
possible to get an approximation of
the truth from the American Press
despatches it is likely that recent occurences
iri. the British House of Commons would
bear a very different complexion. It;is
not surprising that excitement was engendered by the determined action of the Government on the Veto Bill, and in a fierce
onsalught on Ministers it is hardly possible
that Lord Hugh Cecil ancl Mr. F. E. Smith
would not play a prominent part. It is
rather ridiculous, however, to read twenty-
four hours later of "a band of insurgents"
and a "conspiracy to deprive Mr. Balfour
and Lord Lansdowne of the leadership of
the Unionist Party." Another twenty-four
hours brought the Halsbury banquet and

down their arms, and that the old
had won a bloodless victory.   The

In justice to yourself, we ask you to examine the WHITE Gasoline Car before you buy. The WHITE Car was designed and built by the best French Automobile EngineeJ
in the world. Four years ago this Masterpiece was built for the WHITE Co. It has never been necessary to make a single mechanical change. Progressive automobild
manufacturers the world over are advertising the long stroke motor, cylinders cast en bloc, four speed transmission, etc., as advanced features of their 1912 Cars. We have haa[
all these features in our Cars for four years, 45,000 satisfied owners of WHITE Cars hear witness to our statement. Let us shew you the enthusiastic letters of praise written b\
owners of WHITE Cars. The WHITE Car is built of the finest material that money can buy, but it sells at a moderate price, lt is always a pleasure to show,
it is always a pleasure to demonstrate the WHITE Car.    A telephone call brings the demonstrator to your door.
