The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
When Greek
Meets Greek,
The prediction made in
the  last   issue  of   The
Week has been promptly
verified,   and   the   coal
joperators of the Crow's Nest District have
ieen  cleverly   out-manoeuvered   by   the
iners, so cleverly indeed that the Hon.
r. Lemieux had to announce last night
reply to. an enquiry, in the Federal Par-
iament that there was no strike, but that.
en.had individually quit work without
aking  any. official  declaration.     This
hows .how ineffective all legislation is.to
j-ompel .men. to work if. they are not. wiling, perhaps it is-not generally recognized
.•hat it would be equally ineffective to com-
iel operators to keep their- mines open if.
hey wished  to close  them-   It is  the
iailure to recognize this .fact; which: leads
thinking people to demand that the law
hair be invoked to deal with breaches
-hich "have not been  committed.    Mr.
.eniieux' measure is an excellent one as
ar as it goes, but the public have been led
0 expect too much from it.   The utmost it
ould effect would be to provide a breath-
ng space of thirty days before a strike or
ock-out could be declared, but without declaring a strike every individual miner of
[he three thousand employed in the Crow's
est district,  can absent himself from
ork and go fishing or shooting, or pay a
isit to his relatives and fail to return,
ust how ineffective Mr. Lemieux' Act was
ound to be in the present  impasse was
[nticipated by those who bore in mind that
orators and miners had already held a
ree weeks' session at Calgary in the vain
deavor to settle their differences and it
as hardly likely that a further consulta-
on would result differently.   The case is
a nutshell, it may be perfectly true as
leged by the operators, that the miners
ipresentatives broke faith with the con-
ntion, in failing to execute the agree-
ent which was within sight, but the fact
at they have been sustained in this action
per cent, of the men, clearly shows
at they would have been acting in con-
avention of the wishes of practically all
[leir constituents, if they had done other-
ise.   The trouble lies just here, that the
perators fail to realize the conditions
rrounding  the  coal  mining  industry,
ey are not experienced men; they know
'■thing practically of coal-mining or the
anagement of miners; they have not been
[ained in the industry, and whilst most of
em have achieved success in their own
talks of life, they are entirely out of their
[ement in dealing with important indus-
al   questions   which   call   for   special
owledge and in dealing with that class
workmen which above all others requires
be dealt with on a basis of broad human
pathy.    The conditions ignored by the
orators are, that the demand for coal is
in excess of the supply, that there is
admitted scarcity of labour, that the
rkmen are discontented with the terms
'ered, that under such conditions no man
be compelled to work or is likely to
[*rk except upon terms with which he is
Meetly satisfied, that all over tho world
p coal miner has shown himself to be the
fin who never counts personal loss or
'ering when there is a principle at stake,
tat the only way to secure and retain
pour is to satisfy its requirements.    All
jeso are sound propositions which Eng-
lli mine-owners have taken to heart long
lo, and which Western Canadian mine
|ncrs have yet to learn.    In tlie present
instance the operators at first suggested a
reduction of wages, a grossly unfair attitude, and one which in itself was sufficient to precipitate a strike, that it was
only a piece of shallow finesse was proved
by the fact that the demand was subsequently withdrawn and the operators actually consented to a 10 per cent, increase.
Now, the chief; bone of contention is
whether the miners on the east side of the
Rockies, separated less than 20 miles from
•those on the west, shall enjoy the benefit
of an eight-hour day, which after persistent agitation, has been legislatively granted
to British Columbia. That the mine owners of Alberta should be so pur-blind as
to contest this point is inconceivable; the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. fought it for
years at,a cost of several diastrous strikes,
and ultimately had to bow to the inevitable. Just because the mines east of the
Rockies are less favourably situated for
economical operation, furnishes no reason
for handicapping the miners; it is simply
an attempt to remove a natural handicap
by artificial means, and is as certain to
fail as is every attempt to stem the tide of
movements fore-ordained to success. There
may be features of the present contest
which may prejudice the miners in the eye
of the public, and technically it may be
possible for the operators to demonstrate
that on the question of bonafides, they
have a legitimate ground of complaint.
These, however, are side issues, compared
with the main difficulty which is that the
industries of the Province are within
measurable distance of being held up for
lack of fuel, and that if the production
of coal is suspended for a few months
only, untold suffering and possibly widespread fatality may result next winter.
Under such circumstances it is splitting
hairs to force a quarrel on points of etiquette or breaches of faith. It would be
easy to show that the latter did not originate with the miners, but that their
present attitude is due in a very large
measure to the way in which they have
been deceived in the past. Their bitterest complaint today is that they have absolutely no confidence in the President ofthe
Coal Owners' Association and they have
voiced this sentiment in the Press. Let
the coal owners take warning that they are
watched by the people of Canada, who in
some instances have made them a present
of their coal lands, that they are expected
to operate, to keep the country supplied
with fuel, and not to throw tlieir mines
idle periodically as has been the case for
ten years through splitting hairs, or treating their employees in such a manner as
to lose their confidence and render an
amicable agreement impracticable.
That these conclusions are justifiable is
borne out by the attitude of tlie Pacific
Coal Co., which will ultimately be the
largest producer of coal in the West, and
which lias already signified its intention
of keeping its mines in operation under
any circumstances, and if necessary of
dissociating itself from the action of the
Coal Owners' Association.
There are some subjects
Handle which     can     only     be
With Care. touched upon very light
ly in the public press.
In addition to the question of taste involved, the susceptibility of a community
to unenviable notoriety lias to be taken
into  account,   and  therefore  The  Week
wishes to preface any remarks upon this
subject by stating that Victoria can probably show a better record in respect of
public morality, police regulation, and the
control of matters affecting decency than
any city in the West. The occasion of widespread comment recently was a remarkable case of assault upon a goung girl at
Victoria West. As the case was heard in
camera, very few people are in a position
to discuss it with a full knowledge of the
facts. A Week representative was present, and has no hesitation in declaring
that on the evidence submitted the Magistrate could not possibly have done other
than dismiss the case. And this declaration is made by one who had every desire
to see justice vindicated. The sole difficulty lies in the law, which is so framed
that a child of fourteen may be assaulted
by twenty men with impunity if she is a
consenting party. The bare statement of
this fact is appalling and a general
knowledge of it should surely result in
an irresistable demand for an alteration
in the law. An indignant correspondent
who will have every parent's sympathy,
based his criticism of the Magistrate upon
the statement that the girl had been doped;
the evidence clearly demonstrated that the
only dope used was beer, that she drank
less than a bottle, that she had been in the
habit of taking beer, and that it was
brought to the rendezvous at her request.
The whole case was sordid in the extreme
and unfolded a picture of depravity happily rare, and unfortunately against which
no law could be effective. The only excuse The Week has for referring to such
a nauseous subject is that public interest
demands that the few facts stated above,
which have not previously appeared in the
Press should be widely known in order
that there should be a healthy demand for
an alteration in the law.
The following paragraph
'' The Mote and is quoted verbatim from
The Beam." an editorial which appeared in the Colonist of
Wednesday last. It is reprinted at the
request of a gentleman who occupies an
important public position and who suggested that this might be the most effective way of enabling the Editor of the
Colonist to see himself as others see him.
It is also intended to furnish an illustration of journalistic consistency. While
the quotation is verbatim the heading is
not the same as appeared in the Colonist,
but is our own suggestion.
" THE LORD'S DAY AOT."
' No argument is necessary to show that
by the action of the miners a very grave
issue has been raised. We are now to
learn whether the law of Canada controls
the people of Canada or if tliere is a paramount jurisdiction, residing out of the
country, whose commands can override
with impunity tlie solemn enactments of
the Canadian Parliament. We are not
now concerned with the merits of the dispute between the operators and the miners.
All the right may be on the side of the
latter. That makes no difference. Tlie
law has been passed to prevent what has
just occurred, and WHAT THE PEOPLE OF CANADA AVILL WATCH
ANXIOUSLY TO KNOAV IS IF THIS
LAW IS BINDING, OR IS SIMPLY A
DEAD LETTER UPON THE STATUTE BOOK. Tliere mny arise some
question as to who shall assume tlio responsibility of prosecutions. We take it
that the operators ought not to be required
to do so. Tliere are so many obvious reasons why this is so that we shall make no
argument upon the point. While the passage of criminal laws rests with the
Dominion Parliament, THE ENFORCEMENT OF THEM IS IN THE HANDS
OF THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS, and prima facie it would seem
as if at the present time it is the duty
of the Attorney-General of Alberta and
later will become the duty of the Attorney-
General of British Columbia to see that
the necessary prosecutions are instituted
to show that the law means what it says.
AAre are impressed with the idea that this
strike has been precipitated for the express purpose of seeing if the Dominion
Government was in earnest when it introduced the law referred to. AVe would
suggest that as the Dominion Government
has taken the regulation of labor matters
in hand, it ought to see the matter through.
IT MAY NOT BE FOUND NECESSARY TO RESORT TO PROSECUTIONS, BUT IF IT IS, THERE
SHOULD BE NO HESITATION
WHATEVER IN INSTITUTING
THEM. THE FIRST THING TO BE
DONE IS TO SHOAV THAT IN THIS
COUNTRY THE LAAV IS SUPREME.
After that it will be time enough to consider whether or not the operators have
shown themselves disposed to deal fairly
by the miners. That aspect of tlie case
we decline to discuss at the present time.
AVe have some information on tlie point
and are not without our own views respecting it; BUT THE MERITS OF
THE ORIGINAL DISPUTE SINK
OUT OF SIGHT IN VIEW OF THE
FACT THAT A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT HAS BEEN MADE TO SET
THE LAAV OF THE COUNTRY AT
DEFIANCE."
A New
Comic Paper.
The New Westminster
Daily News has joined
the comic papers. Just
whether it will be classed
with Puck and Judge or with 4*Ylly Sloper
or Sis Hopkins is at present in doubt.
The grotesquely humorous achievement
which landed it in the Temple of Fame
was the discovery that the McBride Administration had been clever enough to*
'get away" with $300,000 of the public
money right under thc nose of the most
brilliant Leader of the Opposition of
whom British Columbia records furnish
any account, and without even such a
heaven-sent genius as thc Member for
Delta, and such an immaculate financial
critic as the Member for Yale having the
slightest idea what was going on until
the money had disappeared. Prodigious!
Any Administration which could successfully carry out such a coup would immortalise itself, and it must forever remain one of the greatest mysteries of the
age that the clever party represented by
the New AVstininster News should have
been unable to make this astounding discovery when it would have been of some
service to their campaign. Alas, there is
nothing left for the Daily News but to
indulge in the not very sapient reflection
that "the natural resources of the Province have been given away or handed out
at bargain-counter prices." The News
talks of fooling the electorate, but it ended
in talk.
The attention of The
"OaveOanem."   AVeek has been called to

militates considerably against the popularity of Victoria, and with respect to

At The Street    ^
Corner        h
Xf*f^/*>
By THE L0UN0EK
~%yS\/—~f{t*"'f%S,&
Few things in this brief and paltry
life have given me greater satisfaction than the carrying out of the various proposals for the benefit of humanity, in general, and my own city in
particular, which I make from time to
time. At present I am most pleased
to see in thc daily papers that the
Council havc at last decided to pave
Belleville street with cement, a matter which I have frequently brought
eto their notice through the medium
of these columns. But, more wonderful still, the vacant space at the corner
of Government and Belleville streets
is being filled in, and soon will look
like a portion of Omar Kyam's garden. (I don't think that I have spelt
the gentleman's name right, but it is
near enough to express the sound I
want.) Anyhow, I congratulate the
Council on having at last undertaken
a work which ought to have been
started at least a year ago.
Having thus expressed my appreciation I will go on to the subject
which I have to bring before your
notice this week; and that subject is
"Noise."
What is there that more disturbs
us than "Noise"? Why do we consign the domestic cat to perdition;
the bullfrog to the grave; the milkman to thc gutter? Is it not because
of the noise that they make? Why
do we with words for which we are
afterwards sorry address the express
driver as he rattles past our homes;
why do we utter curses on the poultry
yards adjoining our residences? Is it
not, my readers, because we hate the
noise they make?
Many people have said to me that
they would rather bc blind than deaf.
With them I cannot agree. To live
in a world of silence is a boon granted
to few individuals. Never to be able
to hear the man who wants to borrow
two-bits; never to hear the voice of
the insistent tradesman who is trying
to collect his bill; never to hear the
singing of thc society beauty who has
the reputation of a good voice. Such
must bc heaven. And yet man in his
foolishness does his best to accumulate all the noise around him that he
can. Who would not do without an
egg, if he knew that the laying thereof
would not awake him from sleep?
Who would not forever forsake the
flesh of the duck, if he knew that
thereby he would not be aroused by
that senseless "quacking," which is
reported to have sent more men to a
lunatic asylum than any other known
cause?
There are many theories I know as
to the capabilities of animals in the
speaking line, and they are supposed
to be able to converse with each
other. I have not the slightest objection to animals thus acting, if only
they will do so in a reasonable and
thoughtful manner. Just because a
hen has laid an egg, why should she
proclaim to the whole world the fact
that she has done so? I believe that
in that most excellent book, thc Bible,
we are told that we should have no
thanks for doing our duty, and it is
obviously the duty of a hen to lay an
egg. Why should a duck "quack"?
Any information which she may wish
to impart to her neighbour could be
done in an infinitely softer tone. I
have listened morning after morning
to the quacking of the ducks, and I
have never yet found that their conversation varies in the slightest degree.
My own opinion on animals' language is this; that just as we have to
learn French, German or Spanish, as
the case may be, so thc animals havc
to learn the language of the different
tribes. For instance, the cat tribe
probably understand each other, that
is to say that an ordinary pussy-cat
and a lion could probably converse on
equal terms, but in order that a cat
should hold a conversation with a dog
it would be necessary for her to learn
dog language. It is inconceivable that
an elephant should be capable of continuing a discourse with a mouse in
his own language; one of them must
have learnt the language of the other,
just in the same way that a Russian
who can't talk English cannot be expected to carry on a dialogue with an
Englishman who can't talk Russian.
I have a further theory to propound.
Just as amongst human beings the
conversation becomes louder when
not understood, so I believe animals
make more noise when talking in unknown languages amongst each other,
and that is why the cock crows so
loudly in the morning, and why the
ducks and geese cackle fortissimo.
But the animals are not alone to
blame in this noise proposition.
Readers, whoever you are, I have
a soft spot for you in my heart. This
is only common justice, because if
you read this sort of stuff you must
have a soft spot for me in your heads.
Are we mortals entirely without
blame in this noise business? No,
we are not. There are amongst us
many men "of the baser sort," who
keep steam whistles, who control
steamers, who are in charge of clocks
with a reverberant echo. These men
also control our destiny; they awake
us from a sound, refreshing sleep;
they poison the whole day for us.
Readers, shall we stand for it. Shall
we not rather rise up in our wrath
and rend their limbs asunder? Is it
good for the world that more than
half its populace should be awakened
out of sound sleep simply because a
man, an employer, chooses to blow a
whistle? Is it good for the world that
more than one-half its populace
should be awakened out of sound
sleep just because the captain of a
boat wants to let other people know
that he is sailing either into, or out of,
a harbour.   I trow not.
I intend, therefore, to form a new
society, in addition to those to which
I already belong, for the "Abolition
of Noise," and I should be grateful
for the co-operation of any of my
readers whom ay happen to appreciate my remarks on the subject. All
subscriptions for the said society will
he gratefully received by (Don't send
them care The Editor).
At half past four on Monday afternoon, an omnibus ran down a working man at the corner of Humboldt
and Government streets, seriously injuring him; a crowd collected and several men rendered first aid. The poor
fellow was badly cut and was quite
unconscious. A patrol wagon was
phoned for and on arrival the man
was conveyed to the Police Station.
My reason for referring to the incident is to emphasize the disguest expressed by every person present, and
there was a large crowd, at the conduct of the bus driver who drove
straight on as fast as he could, not
stopping for a moment to see whether
the man was hurt, or to render any
aid. I do not know what the upshot
may be, but the callous individual
should certainly be dealt with suitably in a country which recognizes
the claims of humanity.

Getting Ready to   House Clean.
The usual thorough Spring cleaning requires new brooms and brushes and
dusters.
Couldn't clean thoroughly with the old
worn-out utensils.
Not even with some new ones for that
matter.
The best are none too good and don't
cost much more than those that fall apart
the first time you use them.
We carry the best of everything in
Brooms, Brushes and Dusters and we don't
ask too much for them either.

Come in and get the prices.

Ik with respect to the Fall Fair,
lich by a unanimous vote of the
tricultural Association is hereafter
Ibe called the Fruit Fair.    In mak
ing this change, the association has
acted wisely, since fruit is the staple
product of the soil in and around
Kootenay Lake, and constitutes the
raison d'etre for the Fair. Much has
already been achieved through the energy of T. G. Procter, James Johnstone, C. W. Busk, and other ardent
and enthusiastic Nelsonites who have
pioneered the fruit-growing industry
in Kootenay. Each successive Fair
has been better than its predecessor,
and has fairly characterized the
growth of the industry. This year, if
the anticipations of the committee are
realized, the standard will be raised;
and the reputation of the Nelson Fruit
Fair will be established on a Dominion basis.
workable depth. Mr. J. O'Sullivan,
F. C. S., of Vancouver, who analyzed
the samples taken from the bore hole
pronounces the coal to be "bituminous, of excellent quality and comparing favourably with thc best Vancouver Island and B. C. Mainland product. It is a good coking coal, suitable for metallurgical purposes." The
most glowing anticipations are being
indulged,in as to the future of coal
mining in the Nicola Valley.
It must be frankly admitted that
Fruit Inspector Cunningham comes
off second best in his controversial
bout with the Editor of the Kelowna
Courier. Thc latter has had no difficulty in proving that whilst Mr.
Cunningham did not intend to traduce
the fruit of the Okanagan, he made
indiscreet comparisons which had
nothing to do with the case. It is
satisfactory to note that whilst criti
cising him severely for this "break,"
the Courier compliments him upon
thc energy and enthusiasm of his professional work.
The Editor of the Daily Canadian
says that he does not know what gutter-sniping is; The Week will enlighten him. It is to characterize the criticism which Mr. J. A. Macdonald, the
Leader of the Opposition, has directed at the University Bill in the following words: "Such criticism commands our respect—thc respect due to
honest, helpless, hopeless imbecility."
The fact that this is a quotation from
Ruskin, who was a competent critic,
docs not lessen the offense.
the interior. In its palmy days, Rossland was a good second, but both
must now concede the pride of place
to the Boundary, which, thanks to the
extensive operations of the Granby
Mining & Smelting Company, has a
monthly pay roll exceeding $200,000.
There is one very gratifying feature
in connection with this splendid record, which is that although Granby
is the largest contributor, being responsible for $87,500, tliere are two
other large properties which are by
no means inconsiderable competitors.
The B. C. Copper Company pays out
$42,500, and the Dominion Copper
Company $50,000. It may be interesting to know that the total of $207,-
500 yields an average of $100 each to
2,075 men, which is probably the highest average earnings in any mining
and smelting camp in thc world.
Thc Nicola Herald publishes an interesting account of the operations of
the Diamond Vale Coal and Iron Coat Coutlee. The result of extensive
boring operations has been to prove
the existence of important coal seams
at a depth of 500 to 760 feet. These
seams outcrop at the surface, and beyond the limits of the Diamond Vale
property, and some doubts have been
entertained as to their existence at
workable depth, and in a workable
condition. These doubts have been
removed by the boring operations,
and the seams have been located at
The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company, nuder the direction of
Mr. W. H, Aldridge, is not only redeeming the Rossland camp from the
disrepute into which it had fallen under the sinister influence of Whittaker
Wright, but is establishing a record in
British Columbia for earning legitimate profits and paying large dividends. The sixth consecutive quarterly dividend at the rate of 10 per
cent per annum is announced for payment on May 1st, which will make a
total sum disbursed since Mr. Aldridge took hcarge less than two years
ago, of $700,000.
The Phoenix Pioneer gets off its
little joke at the expense of the Vancouver World in the following neat
paragraph:
The Vancouver World proudly
states that it printed 2,905 columns of
"clean" advertising during the month
of March. As the World is not particular what business it puts in the
clean class, it probably included thc
ad of the British-American Copper
Mines and Smelter Co. in thc lot.

The Hedley Gazette, published in
what may bc regarded as a pioneer
mining camp, is naturally interested
in thc subject of industrial pursuits,
and has been carefully watching developments in connection with thc
prospective coal strike in Kootenny.
It commented sagaciously, upon the
real crux of thc matter, and laid its
linger upon thc weak spot, in explaining why the recent conference
at Calgary was not productive of any
result:
Danger of further labour trouble in
the  Alberta  coal  fields is imminent.
It was most unfortunate that the operators represented by G. G. S. Lindsay showed their hand for a reduction of the wage scale below that
which was made the basis of the
agreement of 1904. Such a desire on
their part was bound to create distrust and arouse resentment, and
those are the conditions out of which
labour strikes grow. The Lemieux
Bill was intended to prevent strikes,
but later interpretations of its provisions look as if it will fall considerably short of that. The bill is deficient in machinery to compel either
side of the dispute to submit to the
rulings of outside disinterested parties, and all that it can be guaranteed
to accomplish is to delay the commencement of the strike for a term of
thirty days.
Secretary Cuthbert will havc to get
busy as he now has a formidable competitor in the Convention line. Hitherto Victoria has been the favourite
rallying point for summer conferences, but according to the Enderby
Progress, Vernon, thc beautiful Capital of the Okanagan, is determined
that Victoria shall not have all the
good things going, at least this is a
reasonable deduction from thc following paragraph:
Vernon is the Mecca this summer
of a large number of conventionists,
as no less than three "annuals" are
scheduled to take plnce within as
many months. Early in Mny will be
held the B. C. Methodist Conference,
arrangements for which arc being
made. This will bc followed in July
by thc Synod of thc Diocese of Kootenay (Church of England); while later
on the Grand Lodge of British Columbia, A. F. and A. M., will hold its
annual communication thsre, The
Oknnngnn is fast becoming the favourite convention section. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 20 1907.
EDITORIAL   COMMENT
(Continued from Page One.)
confer a great boon upon thousands of visitors to the Capital
City. Two gentlemen from Los
Angeles who have recently visited
Victoria, whilst speaking in the
most glowing terms of the City
and its surroundings, expressed
their great annoyance at the stringent enforcement of the rule
against trespassing. Thoy declared
that in whatever direction they
went in the suburbs, and further
out into the opeu country they
found notice boards warning and
threatening travellers with the
direst penalties, if they ventured
from the beaten track. No doubt
the farmers Avho put up these notices are strictly within their
rights, but some discrimination
might be shown between dealing
with reckless urchins who make a
bee-line across fences and through
gardens without any consideration
for the rights of ownersbip, and
respectable citizens or visitors
whose only object is to view the
charms of the country. It is not
a little annoying and surely quite
unnecessary for such persons to be
prevented from leaving the highway and making closer acquaintance with some beautiful marine
view or stretch of landscape. The
Week ventures to suggest to landowners who have been a little rigorous in their interpretation of the
law and a little extravagant in the
use of warnings, to modify their
attitude and within reasonable
limits to extend the courtesy of
permission to enjoy the delights
of rural Victoria, to the stranger
within our gates.
Walker Whiteside in the Magic Melody.
Carnegie
Library.
The    Week    respectfully directs
the   attention  of
the Carnegie Library Committee, Victoria, to two
facts with which it does not seem
to be acquainted, or which otherwise, it seems disposed to ignore.
The first is, that the attendants
are uniformly lacking in courtesy;
the second is that the usefulness
of the Library is greatly handicapped for lack a sufficient number  of  suitable  books.   To  the
latter there may be a reasonable
defense, lack of funds; if so it is
surely not too much to ask that
in order to keep this institution in
a condition of utility, the Committee should either themselves organize a better financial scheme
than the one under which they are
working, or if unable to do so
should apply to the City Council
or if needs be to the public.   It
is surely an anomaly that one can
find on the Catalogue several hundred books of little or no value
measured by the easiest standard,
whilst important books of reference, standard works dealing with
Victoria, Vancouver Island, and
matters directly affecting the history of the Pacific Coast should
be conspicuous by their absence.
The  charge of incivility is one
which can be dealt witb by the
Committee.   Hardly a week passes
without a complaint being made to
The Week on this subject,  and
sometimes,  as  in the latest  instance, it was couched in bitter
terms.    The Carnegie Library is
a public institution, public money
has been and is being expended
upon it, the paid attendants are
public servants, and to the public
they owe at least courtesy in the
discharge  of  their  duties.   The
immediate cause of comment upon this matter is a visit to The
Week office by a gentleman of the
highest position in the Province,
a resident for more than thirty
years, a public administrator, and
a man of exceeding courtesy and
kindness;  he paid a visit to the
Carnegie Library to obtain a standard work on Vancouver Island;
his application was treated with
scant courtesy and he ultimately
learned that the book was not catalogued, although it would naturally be one of the first to be asked
for, especially by visitors; but he
bitterly resented the manner in
which he was treated. This is the
third time The Week has commented on this matter; apparently
the Committee does not consider it
of sufficient importance to take any
action, or possibly it doubts the
reliability of our information. If
another complaint is made the full
particulars will be printed, without submission to the Committee,
since they choose to ignore what is
not so unimportant a matter as it
appears.
Mrs. B. Norton gave one of her
popular "Subscription" dances on the
12th of last week at the A. 0. U. W.
Hall. The ball room was tastefully
decorated for the occasion with bunting and evergreens. The supper
table was prettily arranged by Miss
Johnstone with yellow daffodils, asparagus fern and smilax. The music,
which was excellent, was supplied by
Miss Heater's orchestra.

"The Free Lance," Sousa's melodic
spasm, entertained a packed house at
the Victoria Theatre on Thursday
night. Early in the day the rush for
scats was so great that Mgr. Denham
sold out, and it was quite a novel and
amusing experience for him to spend
the balance of the day twiddling his
thumbs and smiling triumphantly at
the knowing ones who were willing
to bet that Sousa would not draw.
All thc same the production is misnamed. It is not a comic opera, but

thorne than to the librettist. It may
be characterized as a typical up-to-
date American musical extravaganza
with plenty of bustle and go, broad
humour, boisterous fun, noisy choruses and soloists without singing
voices. The chorus was much better
in this respect than the principals and
the opening chorus in particular was
far above the average in similar productions. "The Free Lance" is a
popular show which will amuse without elevating, and will make money

MONTANA   BROKERAGE   CO.,
336 Cambie St., Vancouver. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL ?o, 1907.
The Provincial
Jaw Mill.
Thursday, April 11.—The stormy
debate waged for a fortnight about
the University Bill came to an end
today when the Bill passed through
the Committee stage. The Government stood by their guns and refused
to accept any drastic amendments.
The two million acres originally provided for are to be alotted. Leader
of the Opposition strongly urged an
amendment, alienating timber, coal
and oil royalties from the proposed
reserve, but it was defeated by a
large majority. Parker Williams and
Stewart Henderson fought to the last.
The Member for Yale finally attacked thc principle of a State University. Leader of Opposition secured
one important amendment which varied thc title of the Bill, making it
read the "University of British Columbia Aid Act."
Friday, April 12.—The whole of the
afternoon session was taken up with
the adjourned debate on the Budget.
The principal feature was the fight
put up by J. A. Macdonald to secure
the allotment of a portion of the Mineral Tax to the municipality of Rossland. Mr. Bowser was put up for a
reply and ably traversed the financial
criticism of Mr. Macdonald; on the
division being taken Mr. Macdonald's
amendment was defeated by 25 to 10.
The debate was enlivened by a little
sparring between the Leader of the
Opposition and the Member for the
Similkameen; the trouble arose from
an incident which occurred last session when Mr. Shatford was called
south by a telegram announcing the
serious illness of his father. Mr.
Macdonald claims that his sympathies
had been worked upon to agree to
a pair in order that Mr. Shatford
might discharge his filial duties, and
that subsequently he was twitted by
a member of his own party with being "dead easy," because immediately
after the vote on the Columbia &
Western Railway Bill, Mr. Shatford
returned, accompanied by his father.
At one time an adjournment to the
outside appeared imminent, but better councils prevailed and if Ajax defied the lightning, the lightning refrained from striking Ajax.
To the great delight of Members
who find the afternoon session all
too short for enjoyment, night sitting has commenced. The first session was devoted mainly to a consideration of the estimates, when Mr.
Hawthornthwaite brought up the matter which was suggested by The
Week at the commencement of the
session, viz., an increase of the sessional indemnity from $800 to $1,200.
The Finance Minister intimated that
the proposal was agreeable to the
Government. The Member for Grand
Forks and the Member for Nelson
were to the fore with Labour Legislation, the former introducing an Act
to establish an eight-hour day, and
the latter an Act to amend the Master and Servant Act.
The adjourned debate on the Bill to
amend the Coal Mines Act was productive of considerable discussion on
the subject of the Southeast Kootenay
Claims and the Leader of the Opposition pressed for an amendment by
which the whole matter would be referred to a select Committe of thc
House, but on an assurance from the
President of the Council that a special clause would be inserted to protect the interests of all licensees, Mr.
Macdonald temporarily withdrew his
amendment.
Monday, April 15.—The whole of
thc afternoon session was occupied
by further discussion of the estimates.
Mr. W. R. Ross, the Member for
Fernie, introduced a Curfew Act,
which will undoubtedly be popular
throughout the Province, and should
remedy an evil which is assuming extensive proportions. Another night
session, characterized chiefly by thc
submission of a lengthy and important resolution from Jno. Oliver, calling upon thc Dominion Government
, to expedite the construction of a line
of railway to connect the seaboard of
British Columbia with the railway
system of Canada.
The Chief Commissioner of Lnnds
and Works announced the policy of
thc Government with respect to an
increase in timber royalty from 50 to
75c. Objections to the general amendment proposed by the Government to
the Land Act, were raised by Mr.
Hawthornthwaite and Jno. Oliver.
Dr. King moved the adjournment of
the debate.
Tuesday, April 16.—Tuesday afternoon was characterized by a vicious
onslaught upon Fishery Commissioner
Babcock by the Member for Delta.
The allegation is that Mr. Babcock
is incompetent and that consequently
the Seton Lake Hatchery is a failure.
Mr. Oliver declared that hundreds of
thousands of salmon had died for lack
of proper provision, that only once in
four years does the hatchery have any
measure of success and then it is not
required because there are plenty of
fish in the Fraser. He moved for a
reduction of the estimates by the
amount of Mr. Babcock's salary and
urged his dismissal. The House
smiled when Mr. Hawthornthwaite
characterized these charges as "wild
and vague," failing to realize the
eternal fitness of things in this connection. Mr. Eagleson, the Member
for Lillooet, spoke strongly in support of Mr. Oliver's allegations. The
amendment was lost by a large majority. At the night sitting the debate on the second reading of the
Land Act was continued. Dr. King
upholds the increased royalty on timber, and expressed his fear that the
demand for lumber might fall off, and
profits become so reduced that the
extra royalty would be a burden. Mr.
Bowser moved the adjournment of
the debate.
Mr. Fulton introduced a measure
entitled " An Act Constituting a
Court of Appeal." He informed the
House that the Dominion Government would pay the salaries of the
Judges. The second reading passed
with only five dissentients, the three
Socialists and Messrs. Oliver and
Jardine.
Wednesday, April 17.—The whole
afternoon was devoted to a final consideration of the estimates, which
passed.
Parker Williams distinguished himself by violent and invalid attack upon Ex-Commissioner Gore, for which
he was justly rebuked by the Finance
Minister. If upwards of thirty years
of faithful service does not entitle
a public officer to a pension it would
be interesting to know Mr. Williams'
ideas on the subject of pensions generally.
John Oliver attacked the grant for
the Agent-General in London, as also
the appropriation of $15,000.00 to assist immigration. In the latter he
was vigorously supported by Parker
Williams, who certainly this session
has taken thc muzzle off. An unprejudiced observer may be pardoned for
concluding that the Member for Newcastle is not on the up-grade. Last
session he compared very favourably with his Leader; this session the
gap which yawned between them is
lessening daily.
The University Bill was considered
on report and passed by a vote of
21 to 15, but Stewart Henderson raised an important point of order, claiming that the principle of the measure
had been so varied by amendments
to which the Government had consented that its original character had
been destroyed, and that it could no
longer be passed without a reference
to the Lieutenant-Governor. There
is a strong impression that Speaker
Eberts, who has to decide the matter,
may take the same view as thc Leader
of the Opposition, in which case it is
thought that the University Bill will
bc abandoned at thc present session,
a course which will be extremely regretted, both in the public interest
and the cause of higher education.

Endorsing It.
A bride's mother presented her with
a cheque on Christmas day.   With a
feeling of thc utmost importance she
took it down to the bank in which
her husband had opened an account
for her.   The cashier took the cheque,
then handed it back politely, saying:
Will you please indorse it, Madam?
Endorse   it?   repeated   the   bride,
Ipuzzled.
Yes, across the back, you know, replied the man, too busy to notice her
Ibewilderment.
The bride  carried the check to a
|desk, laid it face downward and nib-
iled the end of a pen thoughtfully.
The inspiration came, and she wrote
{triumphantly across the back:
"For Fanny, from mother; Christ-

"The time has now come," says
Mr. Putnam Weale in the preface to
his latest book, "The Truce in the
East and Its Aftermath," "when a
further estimate of the actual conditions obtaining in the Far East seems
desirable. In a former volume, 'The
Reshaping of the Far East,' an effort
was made to present in readable form

then existed in further Asia, and also
to show what might be expected to
occur in the immediate future. * * *

\% MUSIC AND     I
*     THE STAGE *
Of "The Magic Melody" which is
I soon to appear at the Victoria Theatre, the Butte "Miner" says:
Larger audiences have been seen in
the   Broadway   Theatre    than    that
[which last night heard Walker White-
'side in "The Magic Melody," a production which on its merits should
have been greeted by a capacity house.
But of a certainty no more sympathetic reception could have been given
lany company;  if it    did    not reach
[(across the footlights and inspire the
ljplayers one and all, it must be because they have been schooled to a
[uniform triumph of interpretation.
The play itself, reminiscent in details of "The Music Master" and
pore reminiscent in the sweetness of
Its story, is a work of art; the company which presented it last night
lade it a vehicle of art as well. It is
J'ich in genuine humour, humour subtle and refined and irresistibly appealing; it is rich in dramatic situations
[hat offer opportunities for finesse in
feting, and the opportunities were
lproved to the full; but chief charm
|f all is the spirit of sweet romance
l/hich sings as the undertone of hu-
liour and pathos and climactic pas-
lion; which rises as cadenza in the
|/insome hesitation of the love scenes
id the sublime renunciation of sordid
Imbition for love's sake; and which
■vvells to paean chord in the loveliness
[f the denouement.
The magic melody of a world trans-
lending the hollowness of material-
itic planes where money and social
|i*iumph spell the canons of success
istains the story; it rings in the si-
fcnee of scenes where no word is
>oken, the scenes where the flawless-
less of impersonation was most engrailing.
The company—a small one of seven
|eople—contains seven artists. Mr.
rhiteside, in the role of Helmar, is
jorthy to lead such a company, and
ke others are worthy of supporting
Im.
JThe young German musician merits
|niche among the classic characters
dramatic fiction. Unassuming and
lodest in his struggles for recogni-
pn, he is aroused to indomitably
:eled determination when injustice
I threatened him; his will and his
re carry him to the triumph which
claims as his right; and when fame
[assured him, he rejects it as insig-
icant if it demands the sacrifice of
dreams and his ideals. Of Mr.
jhiteside nothing is to be said; he
ty have been on the stage last night,
It it was Helmar who haunts the
fmory.
[iss May Buckley as Cloris Field-
appears first as a simple and de-
fed girl; the opening scene is but
dawning of a winesomeness which
I*ws into attractiveness in the co-
:try with which Hargrave's pro-
Sal is rejected; which commands
reserved recognition in the story
ne with her guardian, where she
[ounces her own hopes for the sake

son. For-pure fun, true sentiment and
sound philosophy, it ranks among the
best things I have seen for a long
time. The play furnishes one of the
very few examples of a drama which
is scarcely inferior to the book from
which it is taken, and I can readily
believe the statement of the manager
that the present tour has already netted Liebler & Co. $120,000. Its popularity is the best possible answer to
the statement that the public does not
appreciate a good play. On Tuesday
night the Victoria Theatre was packed, and there was not a dull moment
from the rise of the curtain until the
finale. I am filled with admiration for
the clever woman who dramatized it
and I have no doubt that it will hold
a place in popular favour for many
years to come. It reminds one forcibly of the class of human interest
play which J. L. Toole introduced to
the British public thirty years ago, and
which for twenty years enabled him
to hold his own as the most popular
English comedian. Where every part
was taken by an artist, it would be
almost invidious to particularize, but
Blanche Chapman, upon whom the
burden of the play was cast, played
"Mrs. Wiggs" to perfection, whilst

Vivia Ogden as "Mis' Hazy," wer;
simply inimitable. I hope that this
healthy and thoroughly enjoyable plav

The New Grand.
I cannot compliment the New
Grand on its show this week; there
are some turns which are good, but it
does not present the uniformly excellent exhibition to which we have been
accustomed to look forward during
the management of the genial Mr.
Jamieson. Fred H. Stansfield as a
comedian and mimic is feeble; there
is not much in his turn. The Bennett
Sisters are beautiful dancers, of that
there is no doubt, but it is a pity that
they do not confine their talents to
dancing; they sing songs and tell
stories, both of which might be interesting if the audience could hear
them; unfortunately they have not acquired the art of Miss Belle Belmont,
who knows how to open her mouth.
Barrington and his wooden-headed
figures is good, but I must confess
that I thought that this turn was a
little out of date. However, what he
did was good. ' Miss Marie Sparrow
was excellent; her singing, her good-
humoured banter and her stories were
away above the average, and I think
that the whole of the audience was
with her. Archie Boyd & Co., a company consisting of Archie Boyd and
Harry Knowles, present a very acceptable little sketch, which has the
great merit of being original in the
respect that there is no woman in it.
For two men to hold the attention of
the audience as these two do, is a distinct tribute to their acting, and I
think that both acted well. I know
that I was really affected during one
part of their turn, and I was only
too glad to applaud them heartily.
The moving pictures are amusing.

AMERICAN-CANADIAN OIL CO.
FROM THE EDMONTON, ALBERTA,, "FREE PRESS."
OIL PROSPECTS OF MORINVILLE
Petroleum Boom in Sight for the New Town
on the C. N. Ry.
DRILLING RIG COSTING $25,000 TO BE PUT TO WORK BY THE
AMERICAN-CANADIAN OIL CO.
OPERATIONS HAVE COMMENCED.
H. L. Williams, of the American-
Canadian Oil Co., who is at the King
Edward Hotel, is in this country to
start work on an enterprise that promises more for the Province of Aiberta
than anything that has ever been undertaken up to the present time.
Mr. Williams is an oil man of worlo
wide experience. He spent several years
in the California and Texas fields, and
has the honor of being the first driller
to put down .what they call at Summer-
land, Cal., a submarine well.
Backed by a strong company, Mr. Williams is going to start work at once on
the Morinvllle oil field. He has already
purchased a plant in Pittsburg, Pa., a
portion of which has already arrived.
This plant cost over $25,000, and Is re.
ported to be the best drilling rig ever
shipped to the Province of Alberta.
"That oil exists In the Morinvllle field
has been known since 1893, when no less
an authority than Dr. A. C. Selwyn visited the fields in the interest of the
Dominion Government. In 1894, J. B.
Tyrrell, one of the best known mining
engineers in America, visited the field,
and ln 1898 C. M. Dawson, the Dean of
Canadian geologists, accompanied by W.
A. Fraser, the pioneer of Northern Alberta drilling, and Mr. E. Lyons, also
Investigated the field. Their reports are
all in the Dominion Geological Reports
of their respective years, and they are
unanimous in stating positively that oil
exists in this field, and not only It
exists, but that the indications are such
as to prove as conclusively as the geological science can prove anything, that
It exists in large quantities.
"These visits by such prominent geologists were the outcome of the researches commenced by Mr. W. A. Fraser and other agents of the Dominion
Government which led to the discovery
of gas at Pelican Rapids. These discoveries of course are already well known
to Albertans, and their story need not
be retold here. Suffice it to say, however, that the Pelican Rapids well has
been burning a million feet of gas a day
for ten years, and it shows no sign of
diminishing; that this low of gas was
the only reason why the Dominion Government eould not continue the well
down to a lower level at the time it was
being drilled, and that Fraser, in his
report, gives a very racy account of the
prospects of an Immense flow of oil at
the time he was compelled to abandon
the work.
"When this Fraser well was drilled,
as the geological reports show, the first
gas was struck at a depth of 355 feet.
The gas had a very strong petroleum
odor, indicating that they were working
in what was undoubtedly an oil field,
but it was not until they had reached
a depth of 740 feet that the tar sands
were reached. From that depth to 773
feet, the drillers were working in shale
and sandstone which was saturated with
petroleum that was thrown out of the
well with great velocity by the gas
pressure. At this level the Uow of gas
became so great, as heretofore mentioned, that the drillers were compelled
to stop work. At this time they were
on top of the bed of slate which is believed to be the covering of the autic-
linal or deposit of crude oil,
"After a careful study of the conditions ln the Pelican Rapids well, Mr.
Williams commenced, in the summer of
1905, to quietly do tome prospecting in
the Morinvllle district. His first work
was undertaken with an outfit which,
while it served the purpose of prospecting, was far from being an up-to-date
drilling equipment, and he put the hole
down without any casing. The hole was
put down 550 feet, and the log of the
drillers proves that the Morinvllle field
has the same geological formation as
the Pelican Rapids field. The gas, which
was first struck in the Fraser well at a
depth of 355 feet, was found in the
Morinvllle well at a depth of 660 feet,
indicating that the formation dips ll/o
feet from where lt was opened at Pell-
can to where it is opened at Morinvllle.
"Having proved this to his satisfaction, Mr. Williams proceeded to interest
capital in his enterprise, and in this he
has been very successful. He has purchased the finest drilling rig that money
could buy, and has with him two drillers, Messrs. Benjamin and Bartholomew,
who worked for him in California and
Texas."
This article in the Edmonton "Free
Press" proves that the American-Canadian Oil Company Is a successful concern, that the work in the field is being
carried on, that it is only a matter of
a short time when the stockholders of
this company will reap the harvest from
the hard work that has been done ln the
past.

The Company reserves the right to alter the above schedule without notice.
The Company proposes to issue club tickets at the price of $3.00 each.   These tickets will permit the holder to travel on the Company's boat   at the   following   reduced   rate:
Single fare between Vancouver and Deep Cove, 15c each way. Single fare between Vancouver and points north of Deep Cove, 25c.
The above service has been specially arranged to meet the convenience of those who wish to take advantage this Summer of the many beautiful locations on the North Arm]
of the Inlet, suitable for Summer resorts.
First and foremost of these places for Summer Resorts is the one known as DEEP COVE and the Company wishes particularly to direct the attention of the public to its'
many advantages.
DEEP COVE is within an hour's run of VANCOUVER, and the service now offered by the Company will allow of two trips a day to Vancouver from this place at very cheap |
rates.
The North Arm of the Inlet, on which Deep Cove is situated, stretching, as it does, for upwards of twenty miles, offers unrivaled opportunities for bathing, boating, canoeing,
yachting, fishing, etc., on the safe waters within our magnificent harbor, and free from the danger that must often be encountered from stormy weather at similar resorts situated on
the Gulf or Howe Sound.   Lots can be bought or leased at Deep Cove for Summer Residences or camping grounds, with permission to use the pleasure grounds and bathing beach.
Wharf facilities can also be secured for launches and pleasure boats.   Some cottages will shortly be built for which leases can be secured.
As the number of club tickets issued giving the privilege of travelling at the above reduced rates will be limited, and as the demand is likely to exceed the number that will be
offered, those wishing to take advantage of these tickets, will do well not to delay in securing them.
CLUB TICKETS and full particulars as to Lots at Deep Cove can be obtained at the Company's office at 510 PENDER STREET, or by   addressing  communications   to   E,j

Vancouver Notes.
In local shipping circles the feature
of the past week has been the inauguration of two new steamboat services—one for the Skeena river and
the other for the North Arm.   Early
in the week there arrived in port from
Astoria, Ore, the new B. C. Commercial Company's steamer "Northwest,"
which has   been   purchased   for the
Skeena river run.   She is a vessel of
324 gross tons and is capable of a
speed of twelve miles per hour.   The
"Northwest" will remain in Vancouver for about a week for general overhauling,  painting and inspection necessary to change her register from
American   to   British.   The   steamer
will make her initial trip up the river
from   Essington  to  Hazelton  about
May ist and will thereafter make regular   trips,   connecting   with   coast
steamers.   She will be in charge of
Captain J. H. Bonser.
The passenger boat "Beaver" of the
North Arm Navigation Land & Development Co., Ltd., is now on the
regular run between Vancouver and
Deep Cove. The North Arm Navigation & Development Co., which has
recently received certificate of incorporation, purposes running the "Beaver" between here and points on the
North Arm of Burrard Inlet and
Cook's Slip" until September 15th.
Deep Cove is situated on the North
Arm, less than an hour's run from
the city, and is one of the prettiest
places on the whole length of the
shore line of the Inlet, and the promoters of the venture purpose making the Cove a prominent summer
resort. The shore is admirably adapted for camping out, the opportunities
for bathing, boating or canoeing rival
those of the heretofore popular
haunts. The waters of Deep Cove
are admirably sheltered from storms,
and altogether it is one of the most-
to-be-desired places for pleasure seekers to be found within miles of the
City. As a residential section Deep
Cove land is bound to become extremely popular. Already there is
quite a demand for lots in that vicinity and it is said that prices are
expected to advance soon. The North
Arm N. L. & D. Company will issue
club tickets at $3 each, which will

The Way. *
A small boy was fishing in the canal
a short way from Georgetown, when
a reverend gentleman accosted him.
Can you show me the way to
Georgetown, inquired the gentleman.
Yes, sir, said the small boy, sticking his pole in a hollow stump of a
tree, and proceeding to elucidate.
The old gentleman thanked him
and went on his way. Three or four
hours later the gentleman appeared
on the scene again.
Caught any fish, my little man?
Naw.
Don't you know it's a sin to fish on
Sunday.
No, was the quick reply.
What is your name, my little man?
Billy Smith.
Ever go to Sunday school, William?
Know anything about Jesus?
No, sir, was the somewhat delinquent reply.
Ever heard of heaven?
The boy shook his head doubtfully.
Well, my little man, that's too bad.
If you will come up to my Sunday
school next Sunday I'll show you thc
way to heaven.
Oh, you go to hell; you didn't even
know the way to Georgetown.
