The Island Development
League is fairly on the
move, and is not content
with working at head-
■ters, but has initiated a missionary
Ipaign, which opened at Nanaimo, and
fised considerable local interest. Pre-
ably, meetings will be held at other
(ying points, so that the whole of the
ibited portion of the Island may be-
e enthused. The League has a definite
.me—at any rate with respect to
, sportation. It aims at continuing the '
[2 N. Eailway to the North end of the
fnd, and after that construction of a
[iber of branch lines, running up the
irent valleys and tapping timber and
reserves and agricultural lands. This

one which should not be
icult of achievement. The
(pe and contour of Van-
Ver Island lend themselves
its realization, and pro-

intly    dangerous.     Those
have studied the problem
eluded long ago that the
ists and mines of the West
.st would have to seek an
et by rail rather than by
Iter, and would ship their
ducts to the Eastern side
lthe Island.   This will be
governing    factor    of

will sign a contact to do so within the
|t few months, and another may fairly
be said to be on the way, but local development would furnish an additional attraction. The Victoria delegates who are
agitating so strenuously on this latter point
lose sight of this one fact, that ultimately
the great Oriental port of Vancouver
Island will not be Victoria, but a new city
to be established on Quatsino Sound. This
will be two hundred miles nearer to the
Orient, in a more accessible harbour, and
whether passengers are conveyed from the
Mainland by ferry or over the bridge of
which some people are never tired of
dreaming, the connection will be made at
a point far north of Nanaimo, and nowhere
near the south end of the Island. The
Government is doing the best that, can be
done for Victoria, by insisting on direct
and, to a man, recognize the principle that
the well-being of the Empire is wrapped
up with every component part. They look
forward with interest to the forthcoming
conference, when Naval Defence will be
discussed between the Colonial Office and
representatives of every part of the Empire, and they voice the opinion that there
will be no difference as tp the policy of
a definite contribution in accordance with
the plan which will best fit in with the
Admiralty scheme for the defence of the
Empire. They had no suggestions to make
looking to the exploitation of local ideas.
It may be taken for granted that their
views will be impressed on the leading men
of the Dominion, and that they will have
a very definite influence in shaping the

illustrate, on Thursday afternoon travellers were invited to purchase today's Times
as they boarded the 3 o'clock train on the •
V. & N. Railway.   They purchased and
were regaled with number nine cartoon of
Mr. Martin in British politics together
with a full page of current news.   Pages
2, __, 8, 9,12 and the outside page 14 were
reprints of the previous day's paper, so
that the purchasers were buying over again
six pages which they had paid for and read
the previous day, and the little legend on
the front page, Victoria Daily Times, Victoria, B.C., Thursday, May 6, 1909, was
misleading, to use a very mild term.   The
Week does not know whether this is a daily
experience or whether it was due to some
exceptional circumstance, but whatever the
reason it would seem to indicate that occasionally the Times has troubles of its
owu as well as its contemporaries, and that
it could well afford to be a little more
charitable with respect to the delinquencies
of its competitors and might fairly approach its future curtain lectures in a
more chastened mood.   It is only fair to
point out that none of these eccentricities
appeared in the full issue of the Times
sold on the streets of Victoria an hour
later, and the hateful suggestion will crop
up that accuracy was sacrificed to a rush
for the 3 o'clock train.
ferry communication by the Canadian
Northern, and when the full scheme of the
latter company is announced, it will be
seen that the McBride Government has
been very wide awake to the claims of
Victoria and the surrounding districts.
The Australian and New
Australian Zealand journalists who
Journalists.       visited Victoria this week
created a very good impression. Individually and collectively they
are the strongest aggregation of newspapermen who have been here. What strikes
one in looking at tlieir portraits is that
they are nearly all well advanced in years,
presenting in this respect an unusual contrast to their Canadian and American confreres. They are men who have studied
Imperial questions, and mastered their alphabet. They are travelling around the
world mainly in order to broaden their
views on this very subject, and to learn
from personal contact what the other peoples of Greater Britain are thinking. They
realize that a crisis has been reached, ancl
that a definite policy will soon have to be
agreed upon.   They appreciate selfishness,
policy to which this country will ultimately give its adhesion.
Up-to-date journalism has
Up-to-Date furnished an interesting
Journalism.      subject for debate recently
and the Victoria Times in
particular has had a good deal to say on
the subject. Its attitude has been both
censorious and bitter, ancl it has pursued
the subject relentlessly. But no one has
taken it seriously and the public has manifested considerable amusement at the ingenuity displayed in trying to trick an
opponent. The Week does not feel called
upon to pronounce a verdict upon the general question but would respectfully remind the Liberal organ of the old proverb
tliat people who live in glass houses should
not throw stones. To twit a contemporary
about late news, post dated despatches, and
such like eccentricities of the printing
office is all very well, but there is something quite as amusing whicli passengers
on the Sydney afternoon train could tell,
something whicli would very seriously discount those critical utterances in which
the Times is so fond of indulging.     To
Songhees
Reserve.
The local press is squabbling again about the Songhees Reserve. The trouble
is   that  there   are  certain
facts in connection with recent negotiations which have leaked out but whicli
lacked the authority necessary for their
publication. The Week is in possession of
these facts and is able to state that the
Federal Government is again jockeying
with the question. The situation is perfectly clear, the initiative must come from
Ottawa, because while the Provincial Government has a reversionary interest in the
Reserve its control is entirely in the hands
of the Federal Government, which alone
enjoys the status, which would enable it
to treat with the Indians. All differences
between the Provincial Government and
the City of Victoria were settled in the
legislature during the session of 1907 by
a measure which defined their respective
positions, so that whenever the Federal
Government could make a bargain with the
Indians the other interests would be
settled automatically. But the one thing
which the Federal Government seems unwilling to do is to exercise initiative. The
Indians are in possession, and whilst they
might be ousted by a legislative enactment
in the public interest, this could only be
done in conjunction with a scheme of adequate compensation. Reduced to the simplest elements it is a question of dollars
and cents, and the Dominion Government
is not prepared to assume the responsibility involved. The only price hitherto
asked is $300,000, which has been accounted as exhorbitant, but ono thing is
certain that the longer settlement is delayed the higher the price will be. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1908
Sporting Comment.
The field meet at Oak Bay last
Saturday under the auspices of the
J.B.A.A. proved very successful from
every point of view. The attendance was better than has been seen
for some time and the thrte events
were run off without a hitch. The
greatest interest was taken in the five-
mile race between Baylis and Coleman, in which the former showed he
was in better condition. The race
was not exciting until the last lap.
In the former Coleman contented
himself by running a yard behind
Baylis; at the commencement of the
fifteenth however he endeavoured to
pass his opponent, but he was unable to do so, Baylis having a sprint
left. Again at the second turn Coleman tried the same tactics, but Baylis
met his effort. On the back stretch
another effort was made by Coleman
but Baylis maintained his place and
gradually crept ahead until he reached
the tape about twenty-five yards in
front of Coleman, when the latter
quit. Baylis was in better condition
of the two and it is largely to this
that he won.
In the four-mile event, Carroll
again demonstrated his ability as a
long distance runner. His judgment
in this race was worthy of a veteran
of many races. He ran the race in
masterly style and with a little instruction will make as good a distance runner as there is in these parts.
He is only a youngster and I would
suggest to Baylis that he take him
under his care and give him the benefit of his experience. It is only by
these methods that runners can bt
produced and now is the time to develop Carroll.
In the hundred yards dash WinsKy
proved the winner, but the time was
not as good as was expected.
The other attraction for the afternoon was a ball game between the
Bays and Oak Bay in which the former won. Now that the Bays have
started these meets I hope they will
see their way clear to continue them,
especially after the patronage they received last week. In the meantime,
however, a little cash might be expended with good results towards taking the weeds off the track. At present it is in bad repair and the expenditure of a very small sum would
do a great deal of good.
I neglected last week to make any
mention of the action of the Vancouver Island Football Association in expelling the local club from its membership. To say the least the action
of the delegates acting in this manner
is very surprising, and it is also a
very cheap method for the Ladysmith
team to attempt in their efforts to
get a second chance to win the Island
championship. Ia my opinion it is far
from being a sportsmanlike and a few
more deals like this will soon put
Association football out of favour all
over the Island. The most surprising
matter, however, is, how the presiding officer could sit in his place and
allow the delegates to do this when
if he knows the by-laws of the association he must have known that
there is a clause there providing for
cases of defaulted games. It is distinctly stated that any team intending
to default must notify the secretary
of the association and secretary of the
opposing team at least four days previous to thc match; in case this is
not done the defaulting team is called
on to pay the expenses the other club
has gone to, otherwise a suspension
will take place until the expenses are
paid. In the case of the Victoria
United they complied with these rules
but despite this they are not suspended but expelled.
It is also well known that the dates
for the Nanaimo-Victoria games were
changed considerably. The first game
which   should  have  been  played  in

Prince Rupert, B.C.
A great city is spring into being in British Columbia. It is
Prince Rupert—the city of destiny.
Prince Rupert is the terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific—
the emporium of Northern British Columbia, Alaska and the
Yukon—the centre of the great fishing industry of the north—
and destined to be one of the great commercial and industrial
centres of population on the continent.
Between 2,000 and 2,400 lots will be offered for sale by public
auction in Vancouver, B.C., May 25th to 29th. Terms:—one-
quarter cash; balance one, two and three years at six per cent,
interest. Titles are absolutely indefeasible, which means that all
titles are guaranteed by the British Columbia Government.
No city in the making ever presented to the world greater
possibilities than Prince Rupert. What San Francisco is to
California—what Portland is to Oregon—what Seattle is to Washington—and what Vancouver is to Southern B.C., Prince Rupert
will be to* the great developing region of the North.

SPORTING COMMENT
(Continued from Page Two)
ing of the delegates the two teams
from up the line are even. This game
according to the by-laws must be
played on neutral grounds where an
admission can be charged, ictoria is
the only neutral place and Oak Bay
are the only grounds. But whether
the officers will allow themselves to
be bulldozed by the Ladysmith delegates again it is hard to say, but that
game should be played in this city,
and it is up to the officers to act according to the by-laws or resign and
let someone else take the reins.
The baseballers are rapidly rounding into shape and will in all probability play their first game one week
from today at the Royal Athletic
Park.

BEAUTY THAT LASTS.
Where is the woman who has not
the praiseworthy desire to enhance
her personal charms and preserve as
long as possible her delightful power
of enchantment, which lasts as long
as her beauty? The Oriental Cream,
prepared by Dr. T. Felix Gouraud, of
New York City, is a harmless preparation for preserving the delicacy
of the complexion and removing
blemishes. It is the favorite toilet
article of the leading professional
artists, who owe so much of their
popularity to their personal charms.
Scarcely a star dressing room in the
land is without Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, which is the most wholesome
and perfect beautifier known.. Druggists will supply you, No. 8.

Good health generally comes from a
good disposition and, perhaps—good
beer. Few beverages are really as
healthful as the right kind of beer,
for pure barley, malt and hops form
both a food and a tonic. Lemp's beer
is the right kind of beer, an unrivalled,
appetizing tonic that is highly nutritious yet easily digested. Wise men
make Lemp's their home drink, therefore it is to be found on many luncheon and dinner tables throughout
British Columbia. Any dealer can
supply you with this best of all brews.
If you are unacquainted with Lemp's
beer, get in line, call for a bottle at
any restaurant, club, hotel or bar and
you'll say it's the best beer you ever
drank.

The Adamiess
Eden.
By BOHEMIAN.
I have always pictured the Georgian
Gulf with its innumerable islands as a
veritable "Lotus land." It has only
one draw-back and that is not apparent to the traveller as he is rushed
through its turbulent waters on the
deck of an Empress with engine
power which renders the stately
barge independent of tide, current or
wind. But let the pleasure seeker
find himself afloat in a tiny launch, a
boat, or a canoe, and he is apt to
realise that "man's control stops on
the shore."
I spent a day this week on board a
small craft dodging between the I
islands of the Gulf in search of rest,
quiet and change. I found them all.
My launch was small and there were
times when, to use a nautical phrase,
we "bucked the tide" for an hour on
end without gaining anything. The
sensation is more novel than satisfactory, but when a four-knot boat faces
a four-knot tide it is easy to foresee
the result, and there is nothing for it
but to keep the screw revolving and
the boat "nose on" until the tide
turns, or else drift with it, and that
is not always convenient.
The day was squally and alternated
from a gale of wind to a light breeze,
and from brilliant sunshine and a blue
sky to heavy clouds and occasional
showers, and a mild hailstorm. I took
stock of several of the larger islands
and especially of the clearing, and
venture to think that there are a few
developed farms or ranches in the
Gulf which might well be envied of
anyone seeking an ideal retreat. I
visited one where there is a patch of
120 acres under cultivation, yielding
the usual products of mixed farming,
but making a specialty of fruit and
tomaioes.   The latter under glass.
The farm is run by a gentleman,
more as a hobby than for profit, but
his business instinct leads him to conduct it on business lines and to keep
. careful tab of everything so that he
may know exactly how it turns out.
His verdict is that with organised
transportation, so as to give quick delivery to shipping points, the islands
of the Gulf are capable of producing
certain classes of fruit of the best
quality, and to yield a handsome profit, but he agreed that at present there
is no such means of transportation,
and that the market instead of being
organized is disorganized.
I was however more on pleasure
than on business bent, and with a
favourable tide managed to get away
from every vestige of civilization,
crossing some twenty miles of disturbed water, agitated by tide rips,
and winding up in a secluded bay on
a solitary island. I have christened
it "An Adamiess Eden," it is also
Evcless, but Adam has left so many
marks of his handiwork that I think
he is entitled to the preference.
The Island is two miles long, beautifully but not thickly wooded so that
one can travel anywhere between the
under growth. It is only half a mile
wide, and has a singular indenture or
fiord, a mile long by 200 yards wide,
protected by reefs, from the open sea,
and constituting a perfect little landlocked harbour. It is an almost flat,
shelving beach, partly mud and partly sand. My too mercenary companion at once recognized the possibilities of oyster culture and vowed
that it would make a better bed than
that so successfully used at Esquimalt.

of May isn't far away and you'll want to have this room in "ship shape" for the friends that are coming
that day. Then, too, this summer, you'll have some friends who have visited the Fair. Why not make
the additions now. We were never better prepared to furnish your dining-room. Present stocks are
most complete and it matters not what "Scheme" you wish to carry out, we have the furniture to suit.

We would greatly appreciate an opportunity to show you some of our offerings in furnishings for
your dining-room, for we promise you a superior merchandise at a moderate price.

$1.00 down to $7.50.

New Arrivals in Linoleum
Two hundred and fifty rolls of new linoleums were added to our big stock* last week. These came
direct from the foremost makers in the old world—Nairn's and Staine's—and their very latest and best

if wandered through the woods, but
Jt being a naturalist am unable to
Le my readers any Latin names for
Ie wonderful variety of wild flowers
liich   abound   everywhere,   to   say
Ithing of bracken, fern, mosses and
then.    There  is  many  a  little  rill
Ickling over moss-covered boulders,
Id forming   tiny   natural    aquaria.
|iere are a few song-birds, and a few
animals, because I found an old
Vidian canoe anchored in the Bay at
Ightfall and the occupant was pack-
Ig away  his  catch  of the  day. He
lid twelve mink and four otter skins.
I But talking of bird life reminds me
lat never have I seen so many ducks
lid gulls in one place;  thc fringe of
licks  which  line  the  north  side  of
lie  bay were literally covered with
fulls; they looked like a blanket of
Low, and when I disturbed them to
liy that 10,000 finally arose and flut-
1,-red round would hardly be an exag-
kiration.   Beyond the rocks the water
las dotted as far as the eye could see
pith   ducks   and  water  fowl,  brant,
fal, and blue-bill predominated, with
ere and there a heron.    From the
Indian   I   learned   that   halibut,   cod
lid salmon abounded in the waters,
nd he had a large piece of the former preparing for supper.
1 As the tide receded it left at least
J third of the bay exposed and every
|w feet were the little mounds which
Ldicated Mr. "Clam" at home.   The
!;d was strewn with muscles, cockles
lid  other  Crustacea which  I  could
lot name, and the Indian showed me
swamp where in the season flocks
mallard resorted.   It was evident
liat no man   need   starve   on this
■land.
But I must finish my story by telling why I named it "An Adamiess
Eden." At one end of the island is
the remains of a fine residence, built
some twenty years ago by an average Englishman with more money
than sense. It is a beautifully finished log house lined throughout with
best fir, built regardless of cost, with
three large open brick fire places, a
huge verandah, a dressed stone foundation and dressed stone steps. I
found the rooms littered with old
newspapers and art journals, dated
back nearly twenty years, but vandals from across the line had been
at work. They have stolen all the
doors and windows, chopped out hardware furnishings, stripped wainscot-
ting and indeed carried away anything that was not "too hot or too
heavy."
The house must have cost at least
seven or eight thousand dollars to
build, and is now but a shell. There
is no trace of Eve, and Adam has left
a substantial but much damaged
monument. A little further up the
island is a deserted ranch, with perhaps forty acres of clearing, two orchards running to waste for lack* of
a pruning knife although blossoming
when I was there. There is enough
picket fencing to enclose twice the
area, and it at any rate is a monument of industry. There is the biggest barn I have seen on the coast
into which stock of every kind and
a huge crop of hay were evidently
housed, and last and least, but by no
means least interesting, the ranch
house, which tells its own story,
White man—Indian wife.
The usually small low squat house,
narrow verandah on poles, tiny windows. Inside nothing but litter and
a record, the record being the most
interesting of all.
On the door post of one of the
inner rooms the rancher has marked
the height, and age of each member
of his family, and the remarkable
thing about it is, that his children
must have established a record for
height, and I could not help speculating as to where they have disappeared to from this once cultivated
but now deserted island. The record
reads—Brown Bess, aged 40 (presumably tne Indian wife), 5 ft. n 1-2;
Gertie, aged 15, 6 ft. 1 1-2; Joe, aged
10, 5 ft. 1 1-2; Annie, aged 12, 4 ft.
11 1-2; there were three others which
did not however present anything
phenomenal in the way of stature.
Here is a family history, and something to speculate on.

Why waste your time in starting coal and wood fires? Why put up with the inconvenience, the dirt, dust, worry and work of old-
fashioned methods of cooking when you can cook with gas easily and economically and have lots of time on hand for making calls,
reading and recreation.
The warm weather will soon he here and your kitchen would feel as cool and comfortable as any other part of the house if you cook
with gas. You would he spared the heat and work attendant upon coal fires and escape the awful danger of an oil stove. You would
find that Gas for cooking purposes is positively unsurpassed.
Install a good gas range in yonr kitchen and no ghost of a doubt will disturb your after-purchase thoughts. On the contrary you
will feel an absolute certainty of having received your money's worth.
Gas is cheaper to cook with than either wood or coal and how much easier and more comfortable you would soon determine if you
tried it.
You are welcome to our Showrooms whether to purchase or merely to look. Just now we have some exceptionally fine new Ranges
and Stoves.   Prices would please we feel sure.   Come and see.

A. Y. P. Exposition.
Seattle, Wash., May 8.—The Stadium of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition will comfortably afford seating capacity for twenty thousand
spectators, and every seat will command an unobstructed view of the
track, two baseball diamonds and
football field. It is built on the edge
of Lake Washington, and from the
grandstands many of the larger aquatic events may be viewed. Across
the lake the snow-covered peaks of
the Cascades, Mount Rainier and
Olympics are close at hand, and supply a noble background.
The Stadium track is of the new
spiral type; it is oval in form and
scales four laps to the mile. It contains a straight away of two hundred
and twenty yards, and both tracks are
as fast as can be made. Two baseball diamonds are laid out in the
centre, and the football field is placed
between the grand stands.
In the track construction, the following course was followed: After excavating, six inches of coarse gravel
was laid and this was heavily rolled;
on top of this is laid a covering of
fine gravel of the same depth and this
is crushed into place with fifteen-ton
rollers. The top dressing is of cinders, six inches deep and rolled in
thin layers.
The tracks are thoroughly drained
by tile and a fast course is always
insured while heavy going is obviated.
Sprinkling apparatus has been installed, and during all weather dust will
be avoided. The long distance of the
oval is from north to south and the
site is ideal.
The grand stands are two in number and are built on the east and west
side of the oval. In dimensions they
are 360x70 feet, and the seats are arranged in fifteen-inch rises. The entrances are made direct from the
bottom of each isle, which prevents
any congestion in exit or admittance.
Both buildings are fitted with a row
of stage boxes having a seating capacity of from four to eight people.
The height at which the seats are
placed permits of sufficient rise to insure uninterrupted view from every
position and in overcoming the fifteen-inch difference between seat platforms, two short steps are used. Particular attention has been given to
viewpoint, and the sight lines are
ideal. All aisles give away on the
oval, and between the grand stands
and the track an open space of sixteen feet has been reserved for entrance and exit.
The dressing rooms, baths, and
toilet rooms for contestants and
rooms for the public are provided for
beneath the grand stands, and are fitted with all necessary convenience.
All entrances of Stadium contestants will be made directly into the
oval from the central arch of the
grand stands, and in this regard will
closely follow the old Roman method.
By this system an unusually effective
and desirable end is accomplished,
and does away with the scattered and
straggling appearance generally observed.
The Stadium and tracks are designed by Mr. Louis Boader," Assistant Director of Works, and the work
of construction is being carried out
under his personal supervision. All
work on the Stadium will be completed by the middle of May, and on
the first of June when the exposition
is opened to the public, the track
will be in the pink of condition.
Ontario's Outworn Police System.
What looks like a timely criticism
of the police system of the Province
of Ontario appears in The Canadian
Magazine for May under the title:
"Ontario's Outworn Police System,''
by John erner McAree, who for a
number of years was police reporter
for the Toronto Mail and Empire.
The author makes some pertinent
suggestions such as the following:
The System is all wrong. There is
not enough team-play, no combination, no proper, responsible management, too many authorities, jealousy
among the petty heads, not enough
men; far, far two few good men; not
enough money spent, no training
school for the men. There may be
nineteen or twenty other defects that
do not occur to me at the moment.
But though there were a thousand
things the trouble with the police system of Ontario that could be remedied in two prescriptions—a central
management  and  plenty  of  money.
The suggestion is made that the
police forces of Ontario, including
city police, county constables, provincial detectives, special officers such
as are employed by the railways, forest and fire-rangers, game wardens
and their deputies, and jail governors
and turnkeys should be brought into
one force, under one central management. There should be district headquarters in every county, and local
depots in every town and township.
At least once a day the local depot
should report to the county headquarters, and the county headquarters to
the central office. Also from the central office could radiate instructions
by telegraph which could be in the
hands of every man in the service in
a couple of hours. There should be
mounted men in every township
whose duty it would be to patrol the
country roads, day and night, sweeping up the tramps and vagrants who
now make the life of women in the
less populated rural districts a terror.
These mounted patrols, at certain intervals along their route, should have
telegraph or telephone stations, like
the patrol boxes in the city, and from
each of them they would report to
the local depot, and receive fresh instructions, if necessary.   They should
have a certain time-table, so that after a month or two it would be possible for the farmeis along the route
to tell, within about half a mile, where
the nearest policeman was, and to get
a message to him without delay, in
case of emergency.

Up Against It.
The suffragette leader was addressing at a meeting of the Cookladies'
and Chambermaids' union.
"You women should all have a
vote in the affairs of the nation," she
exclaimed. "You should assert yourselves. You should be entitled to a
vote.
Hereupon a seeker after information arose. The interruption was accompanied by a strong Hibernian accent. "Sure, thot wad mean thot we'd
be after havin' to live in wan place
fer six months, wudn't it?" demanded
the speaker.
It was not until then the suffragette leader fully realized what she
was up against.

Cor. Fort and Stadacona Streets THE WEEK, SATURDAY MAY 8.  1909,
At The Street   f
Comer
(_
p By TUB LMJNOBR
The event of the week has been
the visit.of the Australian Journalists,
and with them I have lounged, first
on the Marama to give them the "glad
hand," then at the Canadian Club
luncheon, and later in various parts
of the city and suburbs. For once I
have improved the occasion to the
full and am not ashamed to admit that
it was bccnuse 1 found them congenial. A glance at their portra'ts
published iri the current issue tells
its own tale; they are a lot of fine,
high-minded, intelligent men.
What 3truck me most was the broad
view they take of things; while in
tensely loyal to their colony they
seem far more interested in Imperial
'than in local questions, and in every
thing they said on the subject of Imperial defence seemed naturally to
subordinate the local aspect. Reduced to a phrase their opinion seems
to be: "Keep the Empire strong, and
the Colonies will be all right."
While they were impressed with the
attractions of Victoria, the city appealed to them less than the country;
it is not to belittle our own capital to
say that after Melbourne and Sydney, it looks like a country village,
but of the climate, the scenery and
the beautiful rurality of the surrounding country, our visitors could not
speak too highly.
It would have been much more interesting to meet them if they had
arrival from the East instead of the
West, their impressions of Canada
would have been of much greater
value than their lirst impressions of
Victoria. They will tell everyone they
meet that it is a beautiful place,' but
they will tell this to few who have
not heard it before. What they think
of the country, its resources, its enterprises, ils industries, its social, political and commercial life, and its
policy, will have to be gleaned from
later records, and no body of men
who have visited Canada, not even including the group of English journalists who were here last year, will be
able to give any more valuable and
incisive opinion,
It begins to be a matter of increasing importance what the outlying sections of thc Empire think of each
other, especially in view of the fact
that they are drawing closer together
and that in the near future they will
have to agree upon some line of action in Imperial matters.
with the policy which the churches pf
Canada stand for in opposing racing
on principle; but there is a large section in every community which takes
a medium view, and holds that racing is a healthy, an enjoyable and a
justifiable sport if properly conducted. It affords real enjoyment, it
stimulates business, and it is the only
means of perpetuating a splendid
breed of animals, but there is one
point upon which all right minded
men will agree with the Bishop, and
it is that if it became a choice between
racing with its worst elements attached, and no racing at all, racing would
have to go to the wall, and in Victoria everything will hinge upon this.
The local press has been a unit in enforcing this view and the police authorities, and the directors of the race
meeting have had ample notice what
to expect if the most rigorous control
is not exercised; but it would be unfair to prejudge the case by assuming any carelessness in this regard,
and the position of the directors in
the community is a sufficient guarantee that they will leave no stone
unturned to give Victoria clean sport.

There is quite a lot of talk on the
street about the phenomenal success
of the Y.M.C.A. in raising $100,000
so promptly. The public responded
handsomely to a well organized appeal, and the interest is kept up in
connection with the decision about
the new site. I still think that it
would have been nothing short of a
boon if the Y.M.C.A. could have been
induced to convert the mud flat at
the back of the Empress Hotel into
a thing of beauty, but there seem to
be insuperable difficulties, the chief
one perhaps being that those responsible for thc handling of the project
do not consider the site sufficiently
central; it is probable that the building will be erected somewhere between Fort and Yates, west of Blanchard. This will carry it nearer to the
centre of population and into a district which is rapidly growing in importance and prominence. In any
event thc decision will be made quickly and the good work carried on without delay.
