Victoria Day celebration
in the Capital City was
an   unqualified   success.
All that glorious weather,
huge crowds and an energetic committee
Icould do to render the occasion an enjoy-
:ble and a memorable one, was done.   It
jis safe to say that there were not fewer
;han 15,000 people on Beacon Hill at 10
'clock on Friday night to witness the fire-
.vorks display.   The whole of the arrangements were satisfactory and the natural
Attractions of Victoria were displayed to
;,he fullest advantage.   There is probably
ot another city in Canada so happily
ndowed as to be able to furnish her
isitors with such a variety of attractions
|m land and water.    The record of the
C. Tramway shows that 48,000 people
(verc carried during the day on their sys-
em. This is slightly larger than the number registered in Vancouver, and as the
atter has twice the population of Victoria
he result is a strong confirmation of the
|laim of the Capital to be the popular
ileasure resort.    There is, however, one
atter which it would not be fair to over-
ok, and that is the unsportsmanlike con-
uct of the young men of Victoria in reusing to come forward and take part in
e important athletic contests of the day.
rely it would be a reproach to any city,
d most of all to the city which boasts
t the J. B. A. A., with its splendid tradi-
jons. and its scores of trophies to be un-
le to put either a lacrosse or a baseball
iam in the field on the most important
iliday of the year.   As a matter of fact
e Committee were unable to induce the
jen to turn out and as a consequence at
st five or six hundred dollars was car-
id away from the city which would have
jmained there if local men had entered
[e contest.   By failing to maintain their
isition in the Lacrosse league, the players
Victoria left the venue to be decided
tween New Westminster and Vancouver,
to baseball, tliere would have been no
|me for the many patrons of the sport if
Committee had not paid the expenses
the two American teams who gave a
lendid exhibition of the game, which
jly tended to intensify the general regret
at Victoria was out of it.   In view of
i record of the J. B. A. A., to say noth-
of the minor athletic associations of
city, it is obvious that there must be
iscrew loose somewhere, and The Week
inclined to think that "Umpire" has
t his finger on the weak spot when he
gests that sport like education must be-
'. when a boy is young, and that there
a missing link between school age, and
turity which has not been gathered iip
[' those who are responsible for Victoria
jiletics.   It is not so at Vancouver^ a
tver city, and one far more steeped in
(nmercialism,   and   there   is   not   the
;htest excuse for Victoria.   No greater
vice could be rendered to the city and

jl a great deal of enthusiasm for sport

. wait until over the portals of the pre-
3r athletic association of British Colum-
the word Ichabod is engraved.
Ill-Considered
Campaign.
The Colonist has inaugurated a campaign
against the Victoria
Chemical Co. , The campaign is not characterized by a frank
declaration that the Colonist wishes to put
this firm out of business, but since it finds
space in one issue for three lengthy articles
dealing with the subject of the noxious
fumes which escape from the works, and
winds up with a warning editorial which
can hardly be distinguished from a threat,
the public is justified in concluding that
the most important manufacturing industry of Victoria may have to close its doors
if the Colonist can have its way. The
Week has no greater liking for the vapours
which escape from sulphuric acid and
nitric acid tanks, than the Colonist, but
it greatly questions the wisdom of an attack in the press and the inauguration of
a hostile campaign. Colonel Hall, the
managing director, and Mr. Moore, the
works manager, have always shown themselves anxious to minimize the nuisance
which must inevitably arise in a chemical
factory. The Colonist seems to think that
they should sprinkle the tanks with rose
water and impregnate the air with the
perfumes of Araby. But the municipal
authorities in England where population is
so dense, have never been able to eliminate
certain objectionable features from this industry, and few of the large cities do not
contain chemical works. The Colonist had
better make up its mind once for all that
if Victoria is to have a chemical works it
will have to submit to the escape of
noxious fumes, and if it is not prepared
for this it might just as well arrange with
Mayor Morley to notify Colonel Hall that
the works must be closed. In view of the
fact that Mr. Moore had actually ordered
mechanical appliances to obviate as far as
possible the matters complained of, it was
distinctly unfair of the Colonist to inaugurate this campaign which will undoubtedly have the effect of discouraging
the establishment of other industries in
Victoria. If the Colonist desires that
Victoria should he a residential city only,
well and good; in that case its course is
logical, otherwise it was both illogical and
unfair.
Getting at
The Truth.
The Week was severely.
not to  say scurrilously.
criticised a few months
ago for pointing out that
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. were paying a higher dividend than the operating
profits warranted. In the same editorial
The Week also pointed out that practically
all the money utilized in the payment of
dividends had been acquired by the company through the sale of treasury stock
at a high premium. The General Manager recently announced that a further
issue of treasury stock at $250 per $100
share would shortly be made. As the
issue is to b§ half a million it will, if sold,
realize $1,250,000 and a net premium of
$750,000. In view of the present financial position of the company it will be
interesting to know what justification
there is for putting this stock on the
market at such a premium. Even if the
10 per cent, dividend is maintained, it
will only yield 4 per cent, on the actual
cost price, a rate of interest which cannot
be considered high enough for anything so
risky as a mining venture.   However, as
long as investors, or perhaps it would be
more correct to say speculators, are willing
to pay this price there is no doubt the
company will see to it that plenty of stock
is forthcoming. This criticism by The
Week will be resented in certain quarters,
although it is both true and apposite, but
the following extract from a recent article
in the Victoria Colonist, endorses everything that The Week has said on this
point, and it would be interesting to know
what some of our critics have to say to the
statements of the Colonist:
" It is quite evident that the high dividend basis of 10 per cent, is a strain upon
the resources of the company, and it is a
question if it would not be better to assume
a rate more consistent with earnings than
to overtax to the utmost the yearly net
returns to meet such heavy payments.
''It is true that the reserve fund is a
considerable proportion of paid-up capital
(over 51 per cent), but it should be remembered that this fund was made up in
1904, and included $913,526 premiums
on new stock received the previous year.
The fact that no dividends were paid in
the year 1902, also made it possible for
the large sum of $950,512 to .be carried
forward to the following year and thus
swell the resources of cash assets."
Ill-Placed
Sympathy,
The local press announces
that the friends of
Donald McKay, who was
recently acquitted on the
charge of murdering Wm. Tyrrell, at
Spring Eidge on April 19th, have been
busy since his release from custody taking
up a subscription, with the object of presenting him with a purse. It is added
that if the purse will warrant it, McKay
will take a long trip for his health. That
it would be an excellent thing to get McKay transported as far from Victoria as
possible, everyone who followed the evidence in his case will agree, but in the
name of common decency, he should have
been smuggled away as quietly as possible. Never was a man more fortunate
in escaping from the meshes of the law,
and the man in the street is still wondering why a counsel of Mr. Taylor's eminence should have elected to proceed with
the case on the capital charge after his
experience with the first jury. The disagreement reported was of such a character that it left no possibility of securing a conviction on the charge of murder.
Seven were in favor of acquittal and the
other five were divided in their opinion.
If the charge had been reduced to manslaughter a conviction was ensured, but no
jury would hand a man over to the tender
mercies of a judge with no option for him
but to pronounce the death sentence, and
the proverbial uncertainty as to the possibility of reprieve, on the evidence of one
of the most depraved creatures who ever
appeared in a criminal court. As it is,
the good name of Victoria has sustained
a severe blow and a prisoner who, according to sworn evidence, made an admission
which was construed as tantamount to a
confession of guilt, is not only set at
liberty, but is to be the recipient of a
testimonial, and yet we sometimes pride
ourselves on the way in which the claims
of justice are met in Victoria.
It would be a pity if the
The Grossest splendid work done hy
Exaggeration.       the   Women's    Council,
and the Women's Missionary Society, should suffer from tlie indiscretion of Mrs. George Young.    Yet if
the despatch from Winnipeg which tells of
her exploits in that city, be correct, then
she has indeed with a vengeance given the
enemy occasion to blaspheme. Every
lover of purity, and morality, appreciates
the aim, and sympathizes with the zeal of
the various philanthropic organizations
managed and administered with such success by women. At the same time it is
generally recognized that when dealing
with concrete cases, their action is characterized less by the suaviter in modo than
by the fortiter in re. Mrs. Young visited
Victoria a few weeks ago. and appears to
have made a study of the Chinese colony.
She found out several things which were
not just as they should be, as she would
have done if she had conducted the same
investigation in other quarters not usually
proscribed. Instead of giving Victorians
the benefit of her experience through the
local press, and so affording the police an
opportunity to test her statements, and to
remedy the evils complained of, she waits
until she gets to Winnipeg, and under
the influence and excitement of a public
meeting, she tells a story so sensational
and dramatic, that in respect of newspaper
copy it may be considered almost ideal.
Unfortunately, however, there is a yellow
streak running through it which a con-
niseur cannot fail to identify with that
associated from time immemorial with the
experiences of Baron Munchausen. Not
that Mrs. Young was consciously imitating
the immortal contortionist, but let us
charitably assume that she was carried
away by her broad sympathies and \\ev
dramatic propensities. There may have
been a touch of hysteria, but in any event
she managed to evolve a story which appears to have little foundation in fact and
to owe much of its picturesqueness to her
own vivid imagination. Even the Colonist, which has never before been known
to criticise anything feminine, declares
that the story is, to say the least, very
much exaggerated, and it suggests that
incidents in the career of several Chinese
ladies have been woven into one, presumably for effect. Tliere is a moral to this
incident, and it is that if the Women's
Council and the Women's Missionary Society wish to retain public confidence, they
will either secure the withdrawal of Mrs.
Young's sensational and hysterical screed,
or they will take steps to prove that it is
at least substantially true.
A Smart
Wedding,
The wedding of Mr.
Victor Eliot and Miss
Langley, which took
place at St. Margaret's.
Westminster, on the 7th ult., was one of
the smartest of the present London season,
and the only Colonial wedding honoured
by the presence of Royalty. Tho London
papers devote as much as three columns to
a description of tlio wedding, and a list
of invited friends. Victoria is naturally
much interested in the union, since both
bride and bridegroom are well known and
exceedingly popular in the Capital City.
Barely have a young couple started lifo
together under happier auspices and Mr.
Eliot is to bo heartily congratulated on
having won so sweet a bride.

1 can never fall in line with the
crowds walking down the narrow path
leading to the bathing beach at The
Gorge without recalling to mind these
happy lines of childhood, the product of one who has made a greater
name for himself by his children's
books than many a more literary
genius or popular novelist. 1 confess  to a fellow feeling for thc liis-
ladics, and as matters turned out no
one was any the worse for the accident, but on the other hand it caused
great hilarity. I think, however, that
strangers (the upset happened to a
Victorian) should bc more carefully
warned that the said passage is not
an easy one at certain stages of the
tide. For those who know the place
well there is practically no danger,
but for the unwary it is a very critical
piece of water. On the night in question during the short period I was
watching over the bridge, 1 saw one
spill, two oars lost, two oars broken
and one rudder unshipped. This
wasn't so bad for half-an-hour!
As a professional Lounger, who
prefers to ride in a car rather than
to walk or to row, I wish to add a
word of praise on the excellence of
the car service during the two days
of real stress, and to compliment the
company on having such a capable
traffic manager as Mr. Gibson and
such civil and obliging employees as
are at present engaged. The biggest

"But why mit take short cuts along

friend, "the narrow path, though inconvenient is safe." We have not far
to seek to find authority for the assertion that dangers lurk on all sides

he pointed out a man alone in one of
these charming boats, and he remarked that the occupant must be a selfish

class were originally meant for single
persons. They contain the essence of
"lounging." No one who has not

A Sad Anniversary.
Wednesday, the 22nd May, was the
fifth anniversary of the great explosion at Coal Creek, in which 130
miners lost their lives, and thc occasion was commemorated by the
closing of the mines and a procession to the graveyard. A very large
conclave of miners attended.
Thc Italian society and Slavonian organization, preceded by the
Italian band, marched to the Catholic church, where a very brief service
was held, after whicli the procession
again marched to thc Union Miners'
hall, where they were joined by members of Gladstone union, and all
marched to the cemetery on the hill.
There are many, very many evidences of the tenderness with which
thc victims of thc explosion arc kept
in memory by their friends. But
alas, there arc many graves upon
which not even the names of those
who sleep therein are to be found.
Rows of graves of unknown dead
ones arc to bc seen on the hill, and
those who sleep therein have been
forgotten or were not known when
placed in their last resting place.—

Sporting
Comment
The school sports which were held
at Oak Bay last week proved the most
interesting of the celebration attractions and drew the attention of practically all Victoria. The various
events were evenly .contested and
some very promising athletes were in
evidence.   The school trustees in ar.
game very closely and is well pleased with the showing made by the
local stick handlers. If a bunch (for
they cannot be called anything else)
can get out with four nights practice
and play a well trained team in the
way they did at Oak Bay there is
no reason why they could not beat
them with regular practices. Although this opinion has been given
it is not to be understood that the
players are to swell up with their own
importance, they must attend strictly
to the game and drill as often as pos-
of Newman of the Everett team putting Blackbourne in to pitch after he
had been turned down by Ballard was
greatly appreciated by the supporters
of the Victoria boy, and they showed
it in no slight manner by the rooting
which they did for Everett.

The regatta at the Gorge proved
as interesting as in former years and
if anything attracted a larger crowd.
The races were well contested, the
Indian events especially. The J. B.
A. A. was not as successful as in former years and while they won from
the University of Washington, they
lost to their old rivals from Vancouver. The regatta was a grand success, and it is safe to say it will be a
feature of the celebration next year.
SISSINGHURST
The Residence of Mr. and Mrs. Crow-Baker.
An international event which is attracting considerable attention is the
yacht race for the handsome cup presented by His Honor Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir. The race will be
sailed at Seattle on July 4th and already considerable interest is being
taken in the event. The Seattle
Yacht Club has built a challenger and
great things are expected, while the
defender which will sail under the
colors of the Royal Vancouver Club
is expected to prove very fast. It is
to be regretted that the yachting enthusiasts of Victoria have so little
following that they were unable to
construct a yacht to try for the honor
of defending the cup. It is an annual
race, however, and next year, this
city should be represented.
ranging this annual meet have done
more for true amateur sport than
many imagine and they should receive great credit. They have brought
out some runners and jumpers, who
for their age will compare favorably with those of any city in Canada. In the past, however, the work
of the trustees has been in vain. They
have annually had youngsters in the
contests who show good promise, but
immediately they leave school they
are lost sight of and nothing more
is heard of them. In the past the
athletic associations of the city have
been somewhat lax and have not
taken the younger members into the
fold as they should have done. Two
years ago Dennis Thompson showed
championship form, but since then he
has not been heard of. Last year,
Young Heater of North Ward showed great promise in jumping, but he
has not been taken in charge. Another to be developed last year was
Schnieder, but unfortunately he has
left the city. This season, Gordon
Agnew, in the 220 and 440 yards; Mclntyre in the 100 yards, Brown in
the long distances, and Scott in long
jumps show great promise and it is
up to the J. B. A. A. or Y. M. C. A.
to take hold of these boys and see
that their athletic education is completed.
sible and then a little more. It is
only by practice that a .good team
can be maintained and if the youngsters intend to play the game it is up
to them to get busy at Oak Bay or
whatever grounds they occupy for
practice.
Although Victoria was only represented by a couple of players at the
big golf tournament in Spokane they
acquitted themselves very creditably.
Rithet made the best showing and
gave the winner a decided scare, but
unfortunately he did not win out.
A Story of Mexico.
I lived in Mexico many years and
learned to love the Mexicans for
their quaint simplicity, and their
primitive though rather humorous
traits. One incident stands out with
the subtle humor that only fate can
give to events.
There was a servant whom I had,
a full-blooded Indian I think he was,
Lazy is a word far too energetic to
apply to him. A liar by nature and
a thief by inheritance, he stole with
the apparent innocence of a child and
lied with the grace of a saint. Bernardino was his name, and Bernardino was much in love with one Fras-
quita. Frasquita had a certain native
beauty and, I thought, a slyness a
little more than feminine. She was
a trifle too modest and bashful. I
remember distinctly the first time I
saw her. She stood before me with
head bowed, not ungraceful, but with
a minimum of clothing that included
in all a skirt and blouse. Neither
shoes nor stockings adorned her feet.
Instead of hat, she wore the ever-
present "rebozo," a thin, cheap scarf
that Mexican women use about their
heads.
"Then, slowly, I saw the transformation of Frasquita. First there
came a pair of shoes. I noticed the
shoes because they cramped Frasqui-
ta's feet and made her hobble around
like a Chinese lady. I recognized the
shoes later, because they were my
own. I gently chided Bernardino,
and he, with feelings so hurt that I
felt ashamed of myself, called the
saints to witness that he had found
the shoes in the hall and thought that
I had meant to discard them. 'They
were so old senora,' he said, and I

that you could hardly detect it. Andl
what a hat it all made! The rain-|

in the affair.   Moreover, it seemed tol
me that the attitude of Frasquita toward her admirer  had undergone al
change with her new raiment, and IJ
was interested noting this. But finally]

It is almost certain that Victorians
have seen all the baseball that will
be played in Victoria this season with
teams from the other side. It is very
regrettable that this city cannot produce a team worthy of being called
a team and the writer has been forced
to admit that it is practically laxiness
on the part of the players that has
produced this condition of affairs. The
Week suggests that the J. B. A. A.,
Y. M. C. A. and Fernwoods Young
Men's Association get busy and form
a city league. It is not too late and
with good management sufficient
funds could be taken at the gate to
purchase a perpetual trophy. It is
only by this method that baseball
will ever be revived, and unless something is done quickly the opportunity
this season will be lost.
It was plainly shown last Friday
that Victoria can put a good lacrosse
team on the field. It has all along
been contended by The Week that a
It was shown during the celebration that Victoria possesses at least
one athlete of which it may well feel
proud, and it is hoped that he will
again be seen in action this season.
Blackbourne showed last week that as
a pitcher he has a great future and if
given an opportunity will be in demand by the professional clubs on the
other side of the line.   Baseball as a
His Honor Lieutenant-Governor
Dunsmuir has again shown his sporting inclinations by presenting a valuable prize for golf to be competed
for at the big exposition in Seattle
in 1909. The prize is valued at $1,000
and is open to the world. It is safe
to say that Victoria will be represented.
The annual regatta of the North
Pacific Association of Amateur Oarsmen will be held on Lake Washington on July 3rd and 4th. The J. B.
A. A. will be represented, but as yet
the oarsmen have not been selected.
It is time this was done if any showing is to be made. One month is
none too long to train and the cup
must come back this year. The committee should get busy and give the
rowers a chance to get in trim.

Youth will be served at tennis as
at any other game, and the twenty
years, which Mr. Eustace Miles gave
Mr. Jay Gould in the championship
match decidel at Queen's Club on
Saturday was too great a handicap
for the Englishman. It was a game
in which the loser was entitled to
quite as much credit as the winner,
for the issue was in doubt almost to
the last stroke, and a very little luck
would have given Mr. Miles the victory. The young American combines
the agility of youth with the wisdom
of age. There is none of the rashness of boyhood about his play, and
he was as steady and careful in his
methols at the end of the hardest
fought tennis matches ever played as
he was at the beginning. Even when
Mr. Miles led by two sets to one Mr.
Gould never got flurried, and as in
the ordinary course of events he is
bound to improve in his game with
the ripening of experience, while Mr.
Miles is bound to get a little stiffer
in his joints with each succeeding
year; the American should hold the
championship for many years to
come. It was a great match, played
in the most sportsmanlike spirit by
the two greatest amateur exponents
of the game, and although, of course,
regrettable that the championship
should have been lost to England,
Mr. Gould has made himself so popular during his stay in this country
that no one will grudge him his victory.

felt my cheeks growing red, 'I did
not think the gracious senora would
care to wear shoes so old.'
"The shoe incident passed. Soon
Frasquita was wearing stockings, my
stockings. I was about to protest
again to Bernardino, but modesty
withheld me. Gloves next adorned
Frasquita's hands. I had my suspicions about those gloves, but I could
not positively identify them: gloves
are not so easy to differentiate.
"Frasquita was now becoming quite
a belle. Her shyness was leaving her
and there was a sparkle in her eyes.
Meanwhile the evolution went on. A
fancy, gaudy, silk skirt was the next
change I noted. I puzzled over that
skirt for a long time. I had nothing
like it in my wardrobe. Apparently
it could not have been mine. Where
had it come from? That skirt worried me; it worried me for months.
I may say that I solved the riddle
only the other day, since I have been
in New York, when my maid took
out a lot of old dresses, heavy winter
garments which had been packed
away while I was in the South. One
frock had had its red lining neatly
ripped from it. But at the time I
gave Frasquita the benefit of the
doubt.
"A hat which about a week later
clung upon her lovely black tresses
also puzzled me for a while, but at
last I solved it, too. I recognized
readily enough the frame, for I had
given it to Bernardino. This had
been used for the base, as it were.
"Here I  broke in,  'And the ea|
ring?'
"The earring, too.' he said. 'I tall
back all; then I kill the MexicaiJ
and I give the shoes and the stocl

" 'And the earring,' I said, 'you w|
give that, too, to Carmencita?'
" 'Yes, yes,' he answered, 'all. ever|
thing.'

his sheer audacity,  'you  know thi
earring belongs to me.'
" '0, senora,' he cried in tears, 'pit

Once upon a time—before the universal camera—we used to talk glibly and superciliously of "photographic
fiends," but such a hasty phrase nowadays savours of nothing less than
"lese-majestie," for royalty (so I am
told) has taken to the gentle sport
of photography with extraordinary
enthusiasm, and will indulge in it at
all times and on. the most pompous
occasions. It is whispered that Emperors at their anointing have been
known to conceal a microscopic camera beneath their purple and ermine,
while Queens and Princesses take
"snap-shots" on public occasions and
at stately ceremonies with all the
effrontery of a newspaper reporter.
Instead of waiting stolidly and majestically to be photographed your
modern monarch (to say nothing of
his female belongings) is all agog to
secure a "picture" of the scene itself.
Thus in England . they have the
modern spectacle, at the launching
of an ironclad or the founding of a
hospital, of a sort of cross-battery
of lenses, and a mutual onslaught of
cameras, royalty and public photographing each other. It is even reported that when the President of
the French Republic went to pay
homage to the Dowager Empress of
Russia, that august lady promptly
asked if she might take his photograph with her own imperial hands.
The truth is that royal personages
lead a somewhat monotonous existence, and are hard put to it to amuse
and interest themselves. In the near
future we may hear of Kings who
caricature for the comic papers, and
of Princesses who rise in the dawn
to taste the joy of pictorially embellishing the pavements.
If I were asked what is the greatest foe to beauty in both man and
woman,  I  would  say not errors in

Settlers Rights on Vancouver Island.
The long, drawn out Settlers Rights
luestion is at last to be decided be-
:ore the Privy Council, the last re-
ort to which appeals may be sub-
hitted in the law courts of the Brit-
sh Empire.
Premier McBride, who is at present in London in connection with
:he Better Terms question has cabled
hat to look after the interests of
he Province of British Columbia in
he matter, he has retained Sir Rob-
rt Findlay, ex-Attorney-General in
he late Balfour Cabinet, Mr. Sy-
nonds, who was retained by the Do-
ninion Government in the Alaska
oundary dispute, and Mr. Greenway,
leading London attorney. These
hree will be assisted by a British
Columbia attorney, probably Mr.
3has. Wilson, or A. E. McPhillips,
nd with the case of the settlers in
uch able hands, there is no doubt
ut that their interests will be well
oked after.
Now as the much discussed and im-
ortant question is to come before the
rivy Council, the results of the ap-
eal will be looked forward to with
good deal of interest by the people
f British Columbia, and more espe.
ally    the    settlers    of    Vancouver

The New Westminster News is

the truth but lays its finger right
on the spot:
"A week ago, Toronto the Good
was in a high fever through the prevalence in its blood of the gambling
microbe. "One could not dodge" the
racing talk, says the News, 'one
could not even run away from it.'
But racing is not gambling, says
someone. Not necessarily, of course;
but take all the gambling out of present day racing and see how quickly
the 'sport of kings' would shrivel to
such small dimensions that one could
hardly find mention of it in the newspapers."

K. C. S. I.
[The Indian Mutiny broke out on
May 10, 1857. The following article is written by one of the few
survivors of those tragic days. Appointed to the Indian Service from
Halleybury in 1852, Sir William
Chichele Plowden filled various
positions of distinction during the
following thirty years, and was
member of the Legislative Council
at Calcutta. From 1886-92 he represented Wolverhampton in the
House of Commons.]
That Monday, May 11, 1857, was
one of those delightful fresh mornings which in the Punjab somewhat
make up for the intense heat of May
anl June.
In Amballa the previous day—Sunday, May 19—the infantry regiments
had in defiance of their British officers
taken up a position on the parade
ground, anl not without considerable
for such a duty, handed the despatches
concerning Meerut to the civil officers to be forwarded immediately.
This was a duey I was anxious to
under take, and Forsyth accepted my
offer. It involved a ride of some
ninety miles, anu it was 8 a. m. Wednesday, the 13th, when I got into the
saddle. My first horse took me the
first twenty miles. Here I had to
interview a small Sikh chief to obtain
the loan of a mount. His horse took'
me to Kalka. There I secured an
animal for the ride up to Kussowlie
(6,500 ft.). where a good hill pony for
the remaining thirty miles was provided.
The night became so dark that
neither my pony nor I at times could
make out the way, and as there were
khuds (precipices) in many places, we
had often to stop either for a glimpse
of light or to feel our way. It was
4 a, m? Thursday, 14th, when we arrived at Simla, and handsome Dick
Curzon (afterwards Lord Howe),
whom I had awakened, took me at
once to the Chief, whom hc had to
rout out of bed. He passed on to me
the telegrams he had received from
the Jullundur side. These, bad as
they were, were free from thc horrors
that made Delhi and Meerut so distressing.
That morning very early a council
of the Chief and the headquarters
staff was held. The Commander-in-
Chief's despatches were handed to mc
after breakfast, and I started for Am-

was at Loodianah, the other half at
Amballa. In the first four or five days
after we had the news of Meerut we
were surprised to find the Sikh soldiers of this regiment not far behind
the lisloyal Pandeys in incivility, disrespect, and generally unpleasant behaviour. With the Sikhs this only
lasted a few days, and before the week
was over they hal resumed their ordinary respectful and subordinate conduct. The Pandey regiments were disarmed. But the "Sooruj Mookhees"
remained on duty. I saw a good deal
of the Sikhs, and more of their commanding officer, a very genial Sikh
yeoman, by name Futteh Singh. During the months subsequent to our
taking Delhi (in September) we became very friendly.
The Danger That Was Averted.
One day he was in my tent, and I
touched on the singular behavior of
his men those first few lays—such a
contrast with the good work they had
subsequently done. At first I could
get very ittle information from him,
but, pressed for anl explanation, at
last he said: "Well, sahib, you and
I are friends, and if I tell you, you
must not tell anyonel else. In those
first few days, after the news of Meerut and Delhi, we knew what had happened with the mutinous regiments.
But what would our chiefs like Patia-
la anl Jheend do? Well, the Maharajah of Patiala came in secretly to
Forsyth Sahib. We knew of that;
then we knew his troops were on the
way down to help you to take Delhi.
That was sufficient for us. If our
chiefs like Patiala and Jheend went
with you. we went with you too. If
our chiefs had gone against you. do
you think we should not have done
the same? You woull have had every
Malwa Sikh in the country against
you."
I have often regretted that on learning from Futteh Singh what he told
me I did not at once inform Sir John
Lawrence of the incident. Patiala,
who in my opinion saved the situation
by his conduct and example, was
never sufficiently rewarded.
On this, the fiftieth anniversary of
that terrible time, is it too late in
the person of the present Mahar<"ijah
to recognise more fully the valuable
service of his noble ancestor?

so large that he could not cope with
it. He was always genial, always
kind hearted, and always public
spirited. Aided by a charming wife
he soon became one of the most popular men in the new community, and
when Incorporation took place in 1904
he was elected the first mayor by
acclamation and was subsequently
given a second term. He was also
the lirst fire chief, a member of the
Government License Commission, and
for five years President of the Fernie Liberal Association. Hc was also
an active member of the Board of
Trade. He organized, and since its
inception has been the officer in command of B. Company, Kootenay
Rifles. At the Provincial election
in 1903 he could have had the Liberal nomination, in which event Mr.
W. R. Ross would have had a much
harder fight to secure the seat. Mr.
Stork's departure from Fernie was
signalized by a large gathering of representative citizens, and the presentation of a magnificent gold watch,
a gold chain and a locket. Considering that Mr. Stork has always been
an active politician and has stood so
vigorously for his principles, no
higher tribute could be paid than
such a splendid send-off from his fellow citizens,  irrespective  of party.

That morning, after my return
from my early culcherry, I was writing an account of what had happened
for the information of Sir John Peter
Grant, a member of the Supreme
Council in Calcutta. A chuprassie
came into thc room with a telegram
for Forsytn, the Deputy-Commissioner, with whom I lived. He opened
it, and dropped on his knees as if
shot, and I could hear his heart beat
—beat*—beat, as he handed the wire
to me. It came from Delhi, and ran
thus: "Mutineers from Moerut are
crossing the bridge and massacreing
all Europeans."
It  was  the  first announcement  of
the terrible Mutiny of 1857.
A Ninety-Mile Ride.
A later wire came in subsequently,
giving the names of some of the murdered officers, and concluding with the
significant words, "I must stop." Letters received by post next day (the
12th) gave a full account of the dreadful occurrences at Meerut on the pre.
ceding Sunday evening, and of the
Mutiny of the 3rd Cavalry and the
Infantry Brigade.

horse was fresh, so I gave him the
despatches to take on, and followed
slowly to Kussowlie, sleeping on the
floor of the messhouse of the 75th

Saturday morning, and after breakfast wrote the Chief's order for the

The Latest Version.
There are many accounts of the
battle of Waterloo, but none that I
ever read or heard so impressed me
as that given by an old soldier nearly sixty years ago. The veteran had
really fought in the battle, and now
had been employed by my father in
digging a well, blasting a huge hole
down into the sandstone rock in the
vain search for watui. I suppose the
smell of powder recalled the battle.
He had been a dragoon. What he
most delighted to tell was the famous charge of the " 'Eavies," as he
called them, and which he stoutly
maintained decided the conflict.
"We was drawed up on the top of
the 'ill. They was serviV rations
before the charge. 'Double rations!'
says Wellin'ton. They give us double
rations of rum. 'Put gunpowder in
that,' says Wellin'ton. That was to
make us fiery an' fearless like. 'Off
curb chains,' says Wellin'ton. They
took off the curb chains. That was
so wc couldn't stop the 'osscs when
once we was chargin'. 'Charge!' says
Wellin'ton. An' down the 'ill we went
and swep' them Frenchmen into etar-
nity."
I believed every word of his graphic story, for I was very young then.
"Were you wounded in the battle?"
I inquired.
Slowly the veteran exposed his
back. "Do you see a scar?" he asked.
There certainly was a scar, and I
said so. Then he opened his shirt
in front. "Do you see that?" he asked.   T did see it, and so confessed.
"A bullet went through me there.
It was greased with the fat of me
'eart," he so id.

Egoism.
By BOHBMIAN.
If any good judge of literature were
asked which is the greatest of George
Meredith's works he would probably
say "The Ordeal of Richard Feverel,"
and he would be right; but on this,
as on all literary matters, and on
many matters which are not literary,
there are differences of opinion. I
have heard it stoutly maintained by
no mean judges that the palm should
be awarded to "Diana of the Cross,
ways," while another section of the
master's admirers would vote for "The
Egoist." While still adhering to an
opinion I formed many years ago in
favor of "The Ordeal," I am willing
to concede that in some respects it
is surpassed by "The Egoist." The
latter is more equal, the portraiture
is more perfectly sustained, and in a
certain fantastic analysis which exudes the very quintescence of cynical diablerie "The Egoist" stands
alone. Never was a more artistic,
exhaustive and merciless pourtrayal
of this foible of mankind. So supremely ineffable is the art with
which Mcred:th limns his character
that the treatment becomes almost
transcendental. The book is the
finest illustration in the whole range
of literature of a profound character
analysis painted with the gossamer
touch of a camel's hair brush, and yet
however faint the lines, they are always true and the impression they
make is indelible. It may require a
magnifying glass and sometimes even
a microscope to detect the portraiture, but to the seeing eye it is there,
and  the  whole  is  unsurpassable.
The Egoist is not a lovcable character, and yet much may bc said in
liis defence, lie has at least laid the
race under a deep obligation by furnishing endless amusement, and a
never-failing theme of interesting
study. This is because all egoists are
not artistic, if they were they could
hardly become ridiculous, still less
ludicrous.
Who has not heard with a greater
or lesser degree of amusement, and
even merriment, the self-satisfied va-
pourings of the man who could put
the world right 011 every subject? The
man who had forgotten more than
anyone else knew, who could tell all
about Art, Literature, Commerce,
Science, Human Nature and every
mystery in the heavens or in the earth
mystery in the heavens above or
in thc earth beneath, or in the
waters under the earth? The man
without    whose    dictum    no    con
troversy could be complete, and
without whose benediction no project could be launched with the
slightest prospect of success. The
character is well known, and so well
understood, even by people of average
intelligence, that it is never taken seriously and when it fulminates the
most, affords the most amusement.
Men of this type are to be found
in every community, if there is a public meeting, one speaker after another
will take the platform, but when the
interest flags there will be calls for
the Egoist which take the form of
good humoured banter and spring
from a thorough knowledge of the
fact that he will undertake to solve
the problem, however knotty, and in-
ter-alia to entertain the audience. Notice how his remarks, probably wide
of the subject, are punctuated with
cheers as an encouragement for him
to proceed, and when he reluctantly
sits down he is greeted with salvos
of applause which he takes as he
takes everything seriously, and as tributes to his own merits. There are
such men in Victoria and Vancouver;
they are good fellows, because you
can always ensure their good humour
by professing to take them seriously,
and since we all have our failings, and
if we are not victims of egoism probably suffer from some worse disease, why should not the egoist be
tolerated because he adds a spice to
life?
Is he not a far superior creature to
the man who has no opinions of his
own, who thinks nothing of himself,
and who like Uriah Heep is everlastingly apologizing for his existence? The man who knows everything may become a nuisance, but
the man who knows nothing, and
worst of all who knows that he knows
nothing, must of necessity be a contemptible bore.
There is, however, a phase of
egoism which gives rise to different
reflections, and I much fear it is more
prevalent than that phase of which I
have been treating. It is the egoism
of the man who thinks that others
value him. It may be taken for
granted, that from this characterization should be excluded those of his
own flesh and blood, who are blinded
to his defects by the glamour of kinship, or are mercifully indulgent from
a sense of loyalty. But apart from
these does a man ever really arouse
profound interest in a single human
heart? He may enjoy the companionship of a circle of friends, he may
be the recipient of many marks of
their appreciation, they may applaud
his achievements, and probably will
do so if among them be counted success. They may even go so far as
to vote him a good fellow, and when
he passes they will follow him to his
last earthly resting place, and forget
him before sunrise.
It is even so when a man passes
out of the life of another without
passing out of life itself. It means
severance, the abandonment of a personal association, more or less intimate, but the severance leaves no
wound behind; there is no void to fill,
such a phrase is a mere figure of
speech, or a poetic license. The scar
is superficial, will heal between sunrise and sunset, and the place be
filled ere another day dawns, if indeed it was not filled by selection in
advance.
The man who thinks otherwise, the
man who thinks he is an indispensable
or even a serious factor in the happiness of another is an egoist of the
supremest type, such an one as would
delight the heart of George Meredith.
Such an one in fact as he had in view
when he painted the character of Sir
Wolloughby. He is apt to have a
rude awakening. I am convinced that
much of the unhappiness of men who
think, and all the unhappiness of men
who feel, is due to this unfortunate
habit of taking themselves too seriously, and of thinking it possible that
by any means another will accept
them at their own valuation. Because a man is in earnest or sincere
is no reason why another should be
compelled to believe that he is so;
he will be judged not on his real
merits, hut according to the mood and
the inclination of the person who sits
in judgment. And why should it not
be so, is there any compulsion to ac.
cept another's standard? Is it not
better to stick to one's own in any
event, for how is individuality to be
maintained and character to be developed if the will is moulded or the intention thwarted by exterior influence?
Meredith finely says "That in the
gratification of the egoistic instinct,
we may so beset ourselves as to deal
a slaughtering wound upon self to
whatsoever quarter we turn." He
says with an equally fine discernment:
"The men who seek intoxicating cups
are the men who invite their fate,"
and his final conclusion is "that men
will never learn, without groaning,
that they are simply weapons taken
up to be put down when done with."
But that all comes of their supreme
egoism, which blinds them to the estimation in which they are really held.
I cannot prolong this article to follow the matter further, but have
thought it worth while directing attention to one of his richer books,
especially at a time when there seems
to be a tendency to deflect from time-
honored standards in most matters
affecting social relationships. Luckily even egoists are sometimes forgiven, but this is due to their having made a wise selection of their
friend. There have been instances
where they have worked out their
own salvation with fear and trembling; but it is a perilous task, and
one which should not be lightly undertaken. The happiest because the
safest man is he who thinks nothing
of himself, and who is quite content
that others—all others—should take
him at that valuation.
Literary Note.
It is a curious fact that the most
discussed books published since the
beginning of the year have been
works on religion and theology. Most
prominent of these, of course, is the
Rev. J.. R. Campbell's "The New
Theology," which, in the words of
an English critic, has "set the whole
world talking about theology." A
number of other books, however, show
just as plainly the drift of opinion
and the immense interest taken in
the peculiar religious problems of the
present day. Prof. Alex. V. G. Allen's "Freedom in the Church" has
stirred up a heated discussion both
in and out of the Episcopal Church,
which is not due alone to its obvious bearing on the recent heresy
trial of the Rev. Dr. Crapsey. So
warm indeed has the dispute waxed
within Dr. Allen's own church that
a reply to his book has just been
published. Sir Oliver Lodge, one of
the most distinguished scientists in
England, has published a catechism
in which he defines in the most
modern terms the relations of science
to religion. Prof. Arthur K. Rogers,
of Butler College, in his "Religious
Conception of the World," and Dr.
James B. Pratt, of Williams College, in "The Psychology of Religious Belief," have applied to specific religious problems the methods
in philosophy and psychology represented by Professor James and Professor Royce at Harvard. The trend
of thought in the Church is indicated
clearly by the titles of three very recent books: "The Church and the
Changing Order," by Prof. Shailer
Mathews, of Chicago University;
"Christianity and the Social Crisis,"
by Prof. Walter Rauschenbusch, of
the Rochester Theological Seminary,
and "Jesus Christ and the Civilization
of To-day," by Prof. Joseph A.
Leighton, of Hobart College.
Every one who reads the maga-»
zines has seen in the past year a series of stories by Miss Zona Gale,
dealing with the adventures of a
charming old couple named Pelleas
and Ettarre. The announcement that
Miss Gale has put these original
characters into a novel called " The
Loves of Pelleas and Ettarre," which
is to be published shortly, has been
greeted with general approval. No
stories of recent years have attracted
more favorable attention by virtue
of their grace and charm of manner,
their insight into human nature and
their originality. The success of the
novel seems to bc a foregone conclusion.

F. W. BOHLER, Agent, THE WEEK, SATURDAY JUNE i   1907.
British Columbia's new illustrated weekly journal.
Planned to fill a want now felt in this Province for a paper that will
combine fair and independent comment on current events and public questions
with society news, financial summary, well written stories, wholesome
FUNNY humor, well printed illustrations, musical and dramatical news and
criticisms, clean sporting reviews and other departments of interest to every
member of the family.
THE SATURDAY SUNSET—So named because it is to be a Saturday
evening or week-end paper published in the Sunset Province of Canada.
THE SATURDAY SUNSET POLICY—Fairness and independence
at all times, on all questions; the interests of British Columbia first, last and
always; thoroughly Canadian in spirit and sentiment; independent in politics; fearless alike in criticism or approval of any Government or party—
NOT COLORLESSLY NEUTRAL, but INDEPENDENT and VIGOROUS—a paper with VIEWS, and the courage to express them.
THE SATURDAY SUNSET has absolutely no connection with any
other newspaper, it is under no obligation to, nor is it in any one iota influenced
by, any party or Government, railway or corporation, nor by any interest or
interests, public or private, save solely, those of its readers, and of its publishers, who are John P. McConnell, editor, and R. S. Ford, manager. They
are the sole and absolute owners of the paper.
THE SATURDAY SUNSET will be modelled after Toronto's famous
week-end paper, Saturday Night, in size, shape, quality of paper, character
and general appearance.
THE SATURDAY SUNSET is designed to take the place of the
United States Sunday editions, for Sunday reading—it will be welcomed in
every home in British Columbia —its columns will contain only clean,
wholesome, interesting reading—harmonizing with and promoting the high
standards and ideals of Canadian home life. Its advertising columns are
absolutely closed to quack nostrums, fakes of all kinds, wild-cat mining prospectuses or any other matter of doubtful or objectionable character.
THE FIRST NUMBER WILL BE ISSUED ON SATURDAY,
JUNE 15TH, NEXT.
Of course it is one thing to promise and another to fulfill—in other
words the proof of the pudding is the eating.
If you will send us your name and address we will mail you a
SAMPLE COPY free of charge.
Get the FIRST ISSUE and you will want all the others. Write to us
today and get it FREE.
WE want bright boys in every city and town in British Columbia to sell

Henrietta Crossman will appear at
the Victoria Theatre Monday, June
3, in "All-of-a-Sudden Peggy," coming direct from the Bijou theatre in
New York, and with the distinction
of one of the most popular successes
in her career. Miss Crossman in
"All-of-a-Sudden Peggy," plays an
Irish part, as she did in "Sweet Kitty
Bellairs" and "Mistress Nell," with
the difference that the present character is of an up-to-date type of young
woman whereas Kitty and Nell belonged to the past. "All-of-a-Sudden
Peggy" is a modern play with scenes
la:d in England. It has been described by certain critics as a farce
rather than a comedy. Before Miss
Crossman made a distinct New York
hit in it the play had scored a notable London success, having run the
greater part of last season at the
Duke of York's theatre. It is considered among the cleverest comedies of recent times, one of the best
ever brought to this country from
England. Miss Crossman as Peggy
O'Mara, is a   young   woman whose
The New Grand.
The New Grand this week has a
show which reminds one of the
Bishop's eggs; parts of it are good.
The illustrated song is much the same
as usual, but is followed by a piece,
the like of which I have never seen
before in Victoria. A sketch entitled
"Lot's Wife" failed to arouse the
slightest enthusiasm in a house filled
to over-flowing. The plot is antiquated, the only difference between
this and others of the same type is
that it is a pillar of salt which comes
to life,_ instead of a statue or a picture; the dialogue is inane, and the
ennunciation is so bad that only the
first few rows can hear at all. Harry
Braham is a good mimic, his Dickens
characters being remarkably true to
life; his Fagin is excellent. In many
ways his turn is somewhat of a novelty on the Victoria vaudeville stage.
Mde. Olive is a clever juggler, but
she made her hit, not so much in the
juggling line, as in lie'r tricks requiring quickness of eye and sureness of
aim. She extinguishes candles with
whirling balls, strikes a match on a
box in mid air and catches and piles
an infinite number of rapid flying
plates. This turn is caricatured grotesquely by the comedians, Harding
& Ah Sid, who scored heavily in their
clever and amusing sketch, "Fun in
a Chinese Laundry."    These are two
HENRIETTA CROSSMAN
character is aptly described by her
mother, the Widow O'Mara in the
remark: "Nothing's impossible where
Peggy's concerned when she's in one
of her wild moods," from which it
may be gathered that the girl occas.
ionally departs from strict lines of
conventionality. Peggy means no
harm; she simply doesn't see why
one's conduct should be judged by
appeannees and the worst construction placed on everything. Pegg's
mother schemes to have the girl
marry Lord Anthony Crackenthorpe..
Peggy launckes a counter-plot which
aims to have her mother becom-e Lord
Anthony's wife. His relatives are
conspiring to keep him from marrying, because he supports them. Peggy
delights in teasing Lord Anthony's
family and at length she pretends
she has eloped with Jimmy Keppel,
younger son of the house. Entanglements from this escapade arise from
Peggy's failure to tell Jimmy she is
supposed to have run away with him.
"All-of-a-Sudden Peggy" is credited with an uncommon share of wit
and humor. The comedy is brisk and
keen, the situations hilarious, the
characters droll and amusing. It is
a rush of mirth and merriment. Miss
Crossman is at her best as the vivacious, impetuous and affectionate
Peggy, who "never looks before she
leaps till tfter it's over."
extremely capable artists and well deserved the applause they received.
Mdlle. Cantareuill possesses a lovely
voice and knows bow to use it; it is,
however, doubtful whether she is
well-advised to display it on a music-
hall stage, where excellence of singing is usually a secondary matter to
amusing words. The Moving Pictures were exceptionally good.

Up to a certain point rooks are of

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE i, 1907.
Yachting.
The Texada Island Race of the Royal
Vancouver Yacht Club.
(Specially written for The Week, by
F. G. T. Lucas)
At 5.30 o'clock on Sunday afternoon the Sloop "Wideawake," owned
and sailed by Mr. E. B. Deane, rounded the buoy in English Bay and thereby won the Texada Island yacht race.
This race is for a cup and two prizes
presented by Mr. A. G. Thynne, Vice-
Commodore of the Royal Vancouver
Yacht Club, and the course is set
around the north end of Texada
Island, passing it to starboard. The
race is the longest that has ever been
sailed in North Pacific waters and
from the time it was first proposed,
was the subject of much discussion
amongst all yachtsmen en the coast.
Seattle and Victoria yachtsmen
were invited to enter, but were unable to get away at this particular
time.
The race was full of incidents from
beginning to end and is the best race
ever sailed out of Vancouver. A detailed description would require pages
and would be full of interest from
beginning to end, but it is impossible
here to give more than a brief account.
The start was made from the buoy
in English Bay, the starting gun being fired at 5.30 on Thursday afternoon, May 23rd. The "Verona," Mr.
C. O. Julian, got over the line first
with the "Wideawake," Mr. E. B.
Deane, the "Minerva," the Read Commodore, P. N. Thompson, and the
"Gazeka," Vice-Commodore A. G.
Thynne, got over a few seconds later,
closely followed by "Fourwinds," Mr.
Home.
A brisk easterly breeze was blowing
with a little south in it and all yachts
set balloon jibs and sailed away into
the sunset. Before dusk, they had all
passed Gower Point with the "Minerva" in the lead, "Wideawake" following her closely and to leeware
"Gazeka" and "Verona" abreast and
"Fourwinds" coming up closely behind. After nightfall the breeze
lightened but continued to blow out
of the  east,
When day broke at four o'clock
Friday morning "Minerva" and
"Wideawake" were off the east end
of Lasqueti, "Verona" was southeast
of Texada Island and "Gazeka" passed through Sabine Channel and the
easterly breeze which still held, carried her well up the western side of
Texada Island. The "Verona" crept
up on the "Wideawake" and "Minerva" and at noon these three yachts
were within a few miles of one another off the Sister Islets Light. This
is a small group of rocky islets, with
a lighthouse, clue west of the western
end of Lasqueti  Island.
All the Jong, hot summer afternoon
the three racers sailed slowly in to
the west, close hauled on the gentle
westerly breeze; and when finally the
sun, sinking slowly into thc horizon,
converted the Straits into a sea of
gold, which, changing to orange and
darkening to purple, it threw into
bold relief the stout "Gazeka," Hearing the westernmost point of Texada Island, the stately "Minerva" a
few miles to the south: thc little
"Verona" off Mouatt Island and the
graceful old "Wideawake" away towards the western shnre.
A few hours later thc full moon
was shining over the Straits and the
snow-capped peaks of Mounts Albert
Edward and Alexandra. A fresh
young breeze came out of the northwest and gradually stiffened into a
brisk blow which had the effect of
quickening the whole scene. The sails
filled and thc yachts danced merrily
along to the westward.
Little waves coming down from the
north splashed up against the bows
of the fast fleeing yachts, every now
and then throwing a few drops inboard as if to welcome the strangers.
Thc little waves grew bigger and
bolder and every now and then one
bolder than thc rest brought a little
blue on deck. Bowsprits commenced to pick off thc wavecaps and when
the racers went about on the port
tack, striking out directly into thc
north, as if in resentment at finding
themselves unnoticed, the waves commenced to come right on board in
large numbers and in great quantities, sometimes thc bows of "Verona"
and "Wideawake" were buried completely; but the yachts just revelled
in the joy and excitement of it all.
As the brightening of the eastern
horizon announced the approach of
another day and as the moon, growing dimmer, dipped below the horizon, the yachts rounded into the
Malaspina Straits and sunrise found
the "Gazeka" well started on her
homeward run, the "Minerva" and
"Wideawake" a short distance south
of Van Anda and the "Verona" a
few miles behind. Here the favoring north wind dropped them.
A few hours later a gentle breeze
came up from the south and all the
remainder of the day the yachts beat
languidly down the Straits.
The "Gazeka" andd "Minerva"
crept down the eastern shore of Texada Island, the "Wideawake" beat
back and forth across the Straits
and the "Verona" after reaching
Scotch Fir Point, hugged the mainland shore, hunting for a breeze out
of Jervis Inlet. Nightfall found the
"Gazeka" and "Minerva" at the entrance of the Straits, the "Wideawake" a few miles astern and the
"Verona" still off the entrance to
Jervis Inlet, a mere speck on the
horizon.
At midnight the "Verona" got the
expected breeze out of Adamemnon
Channel, which bowled her along
merrily at seven or eight knots an
hour and daybreak found her again
up with the leaders. The "Gazeka"
and "Wideawake" were out in the
Gulf and "Verona" and "Minerva"
southeast from Thommanby Islands.
As the morning wore on a light
westerly breeze sprung' up and car.
ried all the yachts down towards their
destination with Spinnakers set. The
"Wideawake" with her great spread
of canvas crept up to and passed the
"Gazeka." The "Minerva" was unable
to pick up any of the distance between herself and the leaders and the
"Verona" hung on the "Minerva's"
stern. Finally the "Wideawake"
bowled into English Bay with all sails
set and drawing perfectly and rounded the buoy at 5-07-45, the "Gazeka"
rounded at S-45.2-5; the "Minerva,"
although only a short distance behind, lost the wind and did not finish
until 9:41.16. In the meantime the
"Verona" had run into doldrums off
the south end of Bowen Island and
stayed there until midnight. At midnight she picked up a slight easterly
breeze and finished at 5 o'clock Monday morning.
As the Vice-Commodore had announced before the race, that he would
not allow the committee to present
him with one of his own prizes, the
first, second and third trophies will
go to the "Wideawake," "Minerva"
and "Verona" respectively.
While the race was not a true test
of the speed of the several yachts
entered, it was essentially a test of
navigation and of knowledge of our
Northern waters. Apart, however,
from its being a race and a contest
for prizes, it has served a great purpose and that is to show the accessibility to small yachts of the greatest cruising waters in the world. It
was light weather from the beginning to the end of the race and there
was not a moment from the beginning to the end that it was not the
very finest kind of summer sailing.
This does not mean that yachtsmen
are entitled tn cruise in our Northern
waters in (busily constructed yachts,
for undoubtedly at times, it blows
good and hard; but these cruising
grounds arc now proven beyond any
doubt to bc accessible to any yachtsmen with a well constructed yacht of
30 ft. overall length or greater. The
islands, bays, channels, straits and
anchorages arc all well charted and
afford ample protection from any
storm that is liable to blow, to any
yachtsman who exercises the first
principles  nf  carefulness.
The race will undoubtedly be repeated next season when it is hoped
that the invitations extended to other
clubs in British Columbia and Washington will be accepted, fnr it has
been one of the most successful events
ever undertaken by the Royal Vancouver Yacht  Club.

SALT SPRING ISLAND.
Ganges, B. C, May 27, 1907.
That the name of Salt Spring will
figure prominently in the field of
sport this summer, and even after,
is now an assured fact. There has
been a great deal of wondering
amongst outside places, as to why a
large island like Salt Spring has never
had any athletic organization. That
she had the quantity and quality has
always been conceded.
Last Tuesday night matters were
brought to a point. A large number
of young men and boys gathered in
the Mahon Memorial Hall at Ganges
with the express purpose of organiz.
ing. Mr. T. Mansell, Jr., was nominated chairman. After thanking those
present for their confidence in him,
the chairman exorted them to make
it a powerful club.
Mr. C. S. Wood was elected secretary pro tern. The electing of officers was then proceeded with.,
Mr. W. Mowat proposed Mr. Speed
of Ganges Harbour as president of
the club. This was seconded by J.
Rodgers and carried amidst loud applause.
Mr. Speed, in a few remarks, accepted the office.
Nominations were then called for
for vice-president. Mr..A. J. Croften
proposed and Mr. W. Macafee seconded that-W. Mowat act as vice-
president of the club. The motion
being carried unanimously, Mr.
Mowat accepted the nomination.
T. Mansell, Jr., was elected secretary-treasurer  for  the  ensuing  year.
A resolution was then passed instructing the secretary to communicate with the secretary of the Agricultural Association as to the using
of the show grounds and hall.
Tt may be said here that at a meeting of the directors of thc show society held the next day, the athletic
club was permitted to use the grounds
and hall.
A committee was then appointed
consisting of the three officers and
Messrs. L. Mowat and C. S. Wood,
who were to draft a Constitution and
By-laws, and report at the next meeting.
The meeting then adjourned.
Tt is understood that the club will
take active participation in several
branches  of sport this  summer.
A very poor 24th of May was spent
this year, a gloom being cast over thc
community by the death of two well
known and popular residents On
Tuesday, the 21st, Mr. A. Cartwright
passed away, after a lingering illness.
The deceased came out from England when quite young and has re.
mained on the island ever since. He
was deservedly popular with all, who
will sincerely regret his untimely end.

Mr. .Cartwright leaves to mourn his
loss two brothers, a widow and four
children. The late Mr. Cartwright
was buried at Fulford Harbour on
Thursday, Rev. E. F. Wilson conducting the services. A large crowd
turned out to pay their last respects.
The other death was that of Miss
Florence Lee, daughter of T. H. Lee,
of South Salt Spring. Miss Lee was
only 17 years of age, and in Vancouver with a successful future before
her, when stricken with the fatal disease of spinal meningitis. She has
spent almost all her life on Salt
Spring, where she possessed a large
circle of friends and acquaintances,
all of whom greatly deplore her
death. The funeral of Miss Lee took
place on Friday at Fulford Harbour,
Rev. Mr. Keyworth conducting the
services at church and grave. The
floral tributes were beautiful and
abundant. A large crowd of sympathizers was out. The whole island
extends to the bereaved parents and
relatives  regrets for their loss.
The Trouble With Her Ducks.
Miss Kate Sanborn tells of an experience she had in raising ducks.
The ducks proved to be enormous
feeders and were consuming the profits of the farm without making the
expected returns in eggs. One day
the ducks were at the kitchen door,
clamoring for more food, when an
old farmer called.
To him Miss Sanborn told the story
of her failure to coax the ducks to
lay. The farmer looked at the ducks,
then at Miss Sanborn, and finally
said:
"The trouble with those ducks of
yours, Miss Sanborn, is that they are
all   drakes."

Mr. Victor A. G. Eliot and Miss Grace
E. Langley.
On the 16th inst., at St. Margaret's
Church, Westminster, the marriage
took place of Mr. Victor Alexander
George Eliot, of British Columbia, son
of the Very Rev. the Dean of Windsor and of the late Hon. Mrs. Eliot,
and grandson of the fourth Lord
Rivers, and Miss Grace Edith Langley, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs,
Walter Langley, of Victoria, British
Columbia.
The service was fully choral and
the church handsomely decorated.
The Very Rev. the Dean of Windsor officiated, assisted by the Rev.
Canon Page Roberts, Residentiary of
Canterbury (uncle of the bridegroom),
and the Rev. P. D. Eliot, Rector of
Slough, brother of the bridegroom.
Mrs. Langley, mother of the bride,
gave her away, and the bridal gown
was of soft satin, with chiffon sleeves
and yoke, the semi-train being draped
with very old Brussels lace (the gift
of the bridegroom), which was worn
at the marriages of the grandmother
and mother of the bridegroom. Her
ornaments were a pearl pendant and
brooch, and she carried a bouquet of
white roses and lilies of the valley in
foliage.
There were six bridesmaids:—Miss
Langley (sister), Miss Dorothy Dunne
(cousin of the bride), Miss Eva Loewen, Miss Eleanor Dunsmuir, Miss
Maria Dunsmuir, and Miss Fraser.
They were in white minor de soi,
trimmed with silver belts, "Romney"
style, and they wore picture-hats of
white crinoline and roses, and pale
blue scarves. The bridegroom presented each with green enamel and
pearl brooches and nosegays of roses
tied with blue tulle.
The best man was Mr. Richard
Bellamy.
The reception held by Mrs. Langley, at the Caxton Rooms, Victoria
street, was largely attended, among
those invited, of whom many were
present, being Princess Christian (attended by Major Martin and Mrs.
Dick Cunyngham), the Premier of
British Columbia (the Hon. Richard
McBride), the Duke and Duchess of
Leeds, Mrs. Dunsmuir, the Hon. Emily Loch, the Dowager Countess
Granville, Lady Mary Morrison, Lady
Victoria Russell, Mrs. Wellesley, Miss
Montague, Sir Ivan, Lady, and Miss
Nepean, Admiral the Hon. Edward
Lambton, Lady Constance Hatch,
Lady Ada Fitz William, Lord and
Lady Francis Osborne, the Hon. Mrs
Page, the Hon. Mrs. Oldfield, the
Earl and Countess of Moray, Lady
Harriet Cavendish, the Archbishop of
Canterbury and Mrs. Davidson, the
Bishop of London, Lord and Lady
Normanby, the Bishop of Oxford, the
Hon. Frederick Lucien-Gower, Mr.
and Mrs. Lucien-Gower, Commodore
and Mrs. Colin Keppel, Major and
the Hon. Mrs. Fiennes.
Early in the afternoon Mr. and Mrs.
V. A. G. Eliot left for Salisbury.
The bride's going-away gown was
of pastel pink ladies' cloth in Empire
style, with an inner vest and sleeves
of beautiful Duchesse lace, and a
large hat of pale ping crinoline with
shaded pink ostrich feathers at the
side.
Mr. and Mrs. Victor A. G. Eliot
are at present making a tour of the
chief points of interest in England.
On the -nth ult. they were visiting
Oxford, and will continue to travel
until the 14th inst, when they will
sail for Canada. Mr. Eliot expects
to reach Victoria about July ist, when
he will take a position with the British-American Trust Co. and probably
reside in Vancouver.
The
Edison
Phonograph
If you but knew the pleasure you would find in an Edison
Phonograph, you would not put off a d.iy longer to secure this
versatile entertainer. No other form of entertainment requires
so little expense, so little trouble and so little skill as the real
entertainment furnished by the Edison Phonograph. You have
nothing to do but slip in a Record and then listen. You have the
choice of every kind of music; it is suited to all minds and to all
states of minds. Grave, classic, amusing, funny, ridiculous, sentimental—all qome from the same Phonograph, merely by changing
the Record. We have a splendid stock of Edison Phonographs
ranging in price from $15 up. We invite you to call in and listen
to this marvellous entertainer.
Keep posted on the new Records for the Edison Phonograph
as well as the old. We have them all and should like you to hear
for yourself all the new June records.

Arion-Orpheus  Club—Splendid Concert Arranged.
The Arion Club have much pleas
ure in informing the public that they
have been fortunate in securing the
services of Mrs. Brougham, of Van
couver, to sing for them at this concert, and she will be heard in several
solos.   Mrs. Brougham, who has ap.
peared in this city both as a concert
singer and also in opera, has a splen
did rich contralto voice, and her singing will be a great treat.   Mr. Hanlin, the well known Tacoma basso,
will sing at this concert.
In regard to the male voice singing
by the combined clubs, this will be
the first time in the history of Victoria that so large a choir as sixty
voices has been heard here, and it is
safe to say that it will be a revelation to the musical citizens of this
city.
Several numbers by the combined
clubs, several numbers by the Orpheus
Club of Tacoma, two orchestra selections by the Amateur Orchestra
of this city, together with the vocalists mentioned above, will surely constitute a programme of musical merit
that it would be hard to excel in many
of the larger cities of the East.
The tickets have been placed at the
popular price of $1 each. This was
done in order that no one wishing to
go, could have the excuse that prices
were too high.
Grand Race Meet.
The arrangements for the three
days' race meeting at the Driving
Park are well in hand. The Secretary, Mr. W. C. Moresby, is busily
occupied in dealing with the extensive correspondence incident to an
affair 0? this kind, and Mr. L. Eaton
is as usual to the fore, lending a helping hand. With fine weather, an energetic committee and $3,000 in prizes
the meeting should be one of the best
ever held in Victoria.
Unwomanly Women.
The true woman is never unfemin-
ine. It is the female who despises
sex and its limitations, who hates
home and children, who is ever at war
with men, who envies them, undersells
them, rates them, who has neither
beauty, charm, nor warm, natural affections—she is the unsexed woman,
though she may never have donned
pantaloons or carried a gun, or even
murdered a harmless little bird.—Lady
Violet Greville, in The Graphic.
The Scotsman's Destiny.
The spread and domination of the
Scot continues in an increasing degree, for Scotland remains and must
remain under present conditions a
breeding-place of generations of men
and women for all of whom there is
no room at home. They must go
forth into England and the world,
for the most part to prevail, and
where they fail to fail lamentably,
for a bad Scotsman is usually a terrible blackguard.—Academy.
