THE WEEK, SATURDAY, FEBRUKRt>/U. 1911 ■
Year One Dollar Per Annum
I'HE WATER IMPASSE
Having failed to satisfy the Municipal
iomnlittee of the Local Legislature that
lie Oak Bay Water Bill should be turned
JoAVii the Mayor and Council of the City
|f Victoria have abandoned the field of
anient for that of force, and have
Ihreatened to peremptorily cut off the Oak
lay Avater supply. Whatever the merits
If the case may be, this is not the action
If men but of children. It is true that
lie Mayor and Council are elected to fight
be battles of the city and, if possible, to
nn; but they are expected to fight with
lhe weapons of civilization and Avhen
Joi'sted in fair encounter not to fall back
Ipon the methods of barbarism.' It may
le true that the Corporation of Victoria is
liiiler no legal compulsion to continue to
(npply water to Oak Bay as at present, but
Jo civilized community would sanction
Inch a course as the Council resolved on
|ist Thursday night, nor is it possible that
can succeed. BetAveen such a drastic
blution of the difficulty as is proposed and
lie absolute needs of a large community
lie Courts and the Legislature stand. And
If tlie extreme step so thoughtlessly and
letulantly threatened should be taken
Jiei'e is no doubt that prompt redress will
|e furnished by one or both. The Week
pcognises that the citizens of Victoria
■ave voted decisively and emphatically in
livour of a Sooke Water Scheme, and effect must be given to their Avishes, but it
inconceivable that there is no other
|iethod of bringing this about than at a
moment's notice to deprive thousands of
jeople avIio have located in its most import-
In t suburb and spent their good money on
|eautiful homes of the prime necessary of
Ife Avithout giving them time to secure it
Jlsewhere. Such ill-advised action if peristal in oan only lead to the unconditional
lassing of the Oak Bay AVater Bill by the
l/ommittee and the House, in which case
Instead of Oak Bay being compelled to
lake Sooke. Avater Avhenc\'cr the City is
Jeady to deliver it, the result Avill be to
live them Goldstream Avater permanently
Ind lo deprive the City of Victoria of one*
If its largest customers. And this AA'ill
lave been brought about, not so much by
lhe persistence of Oak Bay as by the ob-
(tinacy and incapacity of the Mayor of
Victoria and those avIio support his action.
iTREET PAVING
The City will shortly adjudicate on ten-
lers for street paving and sidewalk con-
Itruction aggregating $1,500,000. A specification for street paving has been prelum! by the City Engineer and adopted
ly the Council.    It provides for a con-
l.rete   base   in   every   instance   and   an
■Asphalted over-pavement.   The Week ques-
lions the expediency of this stipulation and
jiopes that it is not too late eA'en iioav to
|iave it altered.   The matter will probably
Irop up Avhen the various tenders are dismissed, but the point involved is this:   A
loncrete base will cost at least 50 cents per
Iquare yard more than the asphalt base
Ivhich has hitherto been used by the AVois-
Ivick Paving Company; it may cost even
[•nore.   Since that Company has left in the
■iands of the City a sum of money equal to
■15 per cent, of its total contracts and has
Jalso given a ten years' guarantee for maintenance, it is not quite clear Avhy the city
should incur such a considerable additional
(expense    in    substituting    concrete    for
lasphalt. It may be argued that the former
■will last much longer than the latter, but
•there are other matters to consider; one is
Ithat a thin asphaltic surface laid over a
Iconcrete base will not wear as well as Avhen
laid on a base of its oavii material, and the
|cost of repair   must inevitably be much
•greater.    There is the further eonsidcra-
Ition Avhich, however, does not appear to
jAveigh with the Council, and that is the
■difficulty of obtaining a regular supply
of suitable gravel for making concrete.
The City has found this to be impossible
in the past and with a greatly increased
demand things are likely to be Avorse rather than better. This may mean, and probably will mean, delay in construction,
wliieh in itself is a decided loss. Everyone is anxious for the streets of Victoria
to be paved and made up to date as soon
as possible. The work already done by
the Worswick Company has afforded the
fullest satisfaction to the citizens. In the
opinion of The AVeek the cost is reasonable. No doubt there are other good systems and the City would like to try them,
but in the case of a firm which has already 'made good" it would appear to be
a. doubtful advantage to interfere with
their system by compelling them to abandon one of its essential features, especially
when the City is so Avell protected by a
guarantee and a substantial deposit.
WIDENING FORT STREET
It is officially announced that the widening of Fort Street will be commenced on
or about March 1st, and will be continued
Avithout intermission until the Avork is
completed. The Week has never been able
to appreciate tlie necessity for this expensive project, but as the property oAvners
pay most of the cost it is their business.
To The Week it seems to be a needless
sacrifice of valuable land without any compensating advantages. Presumably, the
procuring cause Avas the desire to emulate
the example of Yates Street, but Avhen one
remembers that many of the principal
streets in London are much narrower than
Fort Street and the mind of man runneth
not to the computation of the relative proportions of traffic, it is not easy to see that
the Avork in question is necessary. However, it is decided upon and therefore it is
to be hoped that there will be no delay in
carrying it to a successful finish and that
the city authorities and the property oavii-
ers will co-operate to this end. When it is
remembered that tliere Avill be no decent
thoroughfare up Fort Street until the
work is completed it is certain that the
Avish of The Week will be echoed by many
thousands of our citizens. Let the property owners folloAV the excellent example
set by Mr. Thomas Catterall aa'Iio Avas the
first to demolish the front of his building and place it back to the new alignment.
VITAL STATISTICS
AVhen the Mayor Avas addressing the
Municipal Committee of the local Legislature on AVednesday last he denounced
those persons avIio declared that Elk Lake
Avater Avas impure, and injurious to health,
and pointed to the vital statistics of the
City in proof of his contention. It is true
that in the aggregate these statistics support that contention, but The AVeek, not.
for the first time, avouIc! respectfully remind the Mayor that he is ignoring a circumstance of Avliich he must have full
knowledge, Avhich is that the highest medical authority in the City and in the
Province considers that Elk Lake Avater is
responsible for the astounding fact that
the most fatal and incurable disease known
claims four times as many victims in Victoria as in any knoAvn city of equal size,
and perhaps more Avonderful still, ancl at
any rate more conclusive, its ravages are
confined to that section of the city which
uses Elk Lake Avater Avhilst Arictoria West,
whicii uses the Avater of the Esquimalt
Company, is practically exempt. These
figures are taken from the medical reports
covering the last twenty-five years; these
reports are in the Registry Office and the
statement of The AVeek can be checked by
anyone. Is Mayor Morley aAvare that the
Provincial Medical Officer condemns Elk
Lake Avater? Is he aAvare that there are
many families living in Victoria, some of
them as long as fiA'e or six years, avIio act
ing on medical advice neA'er drink the city
water, but pay from five to ten dollars a
month for distilled and aerated Avater'*
When he talks of vital statistics he should
go to the root of thc matter.
VANCOUVER UNDESIRABLES
The attention of The Week has been directed to a matter which is certainly deserving of attention on the part of the
authorities, and as the remedy lies in the
hands of the Attorney-General there is
no doubt that if the case w'ere properly
presented it would be suitably dealt with.
For several yers past the comparative immunity of ATictoria from serious crime has
furnished an opportunity to transfer prisoners here from A^ancoiiA'er and ~N.\v
Westminster. With the growth of the
Terminal City this tendency has increased until during last year it has been nothing uncommon for a batch of twenty or
thirty of the most undesirable kind of
prisoners to be transferred to the Arictoria
gaol. As long as there is insufficient accommodation on the Mainland and plenty
of room here no reasonable objection
could be taken to this course; but surely
it is the duty of the Department to return
the undesirables to the place from Avhich
they started ancl not to let them loose in
A'ictoria, Avhich is defenceless against a
class of criminal of which Ave have had
very little experience. There may be no
laAv goA'erning the subject but common
sense and fair play demand that Alctoria
should not* be made to suffer permanently
because it helps the Department out of a
temporary difficulty.
A BOOMERANG
It is a A'ery old device of an unscrupulous controversialist to misquote his opponent in order to denounce him. The Arictoria Times, which is a past-master in
the art of misrepresentation, made a bitter
attack on Mr. Price Ellison, the Minister
of Finance ancl Agriculture Avhen it stated
that he said on the floors of the House that
Mr. J. J. Hill had paid the farmers of
Manitoba $50,000 to go to OttaAva ancl advocate the Reriprocity Agreement. The
lie got twenty-four hours start of the Minister's denial, Avhich is probably all that
the Times wanted, but the disgusting part
of it is that any public journal should be
so lost to a sense of decency as to be will-
ing to make a baseless attack upon a Minister avIio is respected ancl beloved by all
who knoAV him, ancl avIio has received en-
coniums from all parties for the splendid
services whicli he rendered tho Province
during his recent trip to England. The
Times Avent so far as to say that he Avas
not fit for his position, but the Times is
hardly an authority and certainly not a
successful one in designating Ministers,
either Provincial or Federal—at least that
is the verdict of tlie electorate of Victorin.
THE CLOVEN FOOT
The Arictoria Times concludes a didactic ancl comminafory editorial under the
above heading Avith the folloAving significant paragraph: "The people can be fooled for a time, but not always. Democracy
Avill yet be triumphant and AA'ill cast forth
the men Avho try to deprive them of their
just rights ancl privileges." No doubt the
Times was thinking of the Hon. William
Templeman avIio fooled the electorate for
ten years, but Avas cast forth at the last
Federal election by the citizens of Arictoria, ancl Avas driven to force himself upon
a northern constituency Avhich did not
Avant him and Avhich refuses to repeat the
experiment. It Avould be unkind to carry
the illustration further and to include his
organ "which is undergoing a tardy process
of spring cleaning, and his Provincial
party Avhich has iioav been reduced to one.
The Times should be a little more careful
of its choice of illustrations.
RECIPROCITY
The proposed Reciprocity Agreement
has been discussed in the Britisli and Canadian Parliaments. The most pregnant
contribution to the debate comes from the
pen of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, than
whom no one is more competent to express
an opinion. He deplores the stand Avhich
has been taken by the Canadian Government on the ground that it will handicap
the cause of Tariff Reform at home, Aveak-
en the British Preference, ancl create a
diversion in favour of American as opposed to British Imperial sentiment. This
puts the case in a nutshell; it is almost
identical with the ground taken by The
Week in its last issue and covered by the
Resolutions of the Montreal Board of
Trade. There is little doubt that the
Agreement Avill pass the Canadian Parliament and the United States Congress.
It -will do this since the Laurier Government controls the former ancl tliere are a
sufficient number of people to support it
because they Avill benefit directly from
the schedule, but this is the narrowest and
the Iiwest consideration and its working
out will not make for the goocl of Canada
or the consolidation of the Empire.
THAT PROTEST
Late, as usual, the Colonist comes out
with a protest against the location of the
public convenience at the North-Avest corner of the Causeway. It is a little strange
that since The AAreek has been advocating
the establishment of these conveniences for
more than five years, the Colonist has only
just begun to take an interest in the matter, and has waited till the contract is let,
and could not be broken Avithout considerable loss, to voice its opposition. It is
pretty much the same ivith this subject as
with the Avater question. AVe have waited
so long that any settlement is better than
none ancl the Editor of the Colonist need
not Avorry because in a short time there
Avill be several, including ono on thp
Esquimalt Road.
THEATRICAL CLUB
If the ability of Mr. Sheridan-Bickers
is on a par with his energy Victoria will
benefit greatly "from the establishment of
the Theatrical Club whicli he has just organised. It starts under admirable auspices. It is badly needed, especially in
this day of degenerate professional theatricals. Moreover, Victoria has a large
number of thoroughly competent amateurs
and if Mr. Bickers can secure their cooperation and steer clear in his productions
of boisterous farces lie will secure public
support ancl earn, if he does not receiA'e, a
medal.
THE CANADIAN CLUB
The Annual meeting of the Canadian
Club furnishes an opportunity to express
tho hope that our respected and capable
fellow-citizen Mr. Lindley Crease will bc
able to resuscitate a moribund institution.
It has fallen almost as Ioav as it can without ceasing to exist, and mainly because it
has entirely forgotten its constitution, and
instead of seeking to create ancl deA'elop a
Canadian sentiment has contented itself
witli exploiting mediocrities and cranks.
When an invitation to address the Canadian Club ceased to be a compliment its
rehabilitation became a necessity.
THE DUKE OF CONNAUGHT
The Colonist has very decided vieAvs on
the duties of Governors, and especially on
the course Avliich should be pursued by the
Duke of Connaught when he comes to
Canada. The AVeek ventures to remind the
Family Journal that it is not more than
six months since it made the sapient remark in its editorial columns that if the
Duke came to Canada the people Avould
not knoAV what to do with him.
\* THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, FEBEUARY 11, 1911
At The Street
Corner
 Bj TMB LOUNGER 	
Is it absolutely impossible to effect any reform in the matter of the
use of vile language on the public
streets and in public places by the
youth of Victoria? Three separate
complaints on tllis score were made
to me this week. In one case my
informant was passing the fire-station in Victoria West Avhen his ears
were assailed with the filthiest kind
of talk proceeding from a gang of
young boys avIio took not the slightest notice of the fact that there were
Avomen and children passing to and
fro all the time. In another instance
Fort Street was the "mise en scene"
for the tail-end of a school-boys'
quarrel which was concluded by such
an out-burst of bestial epithets that
a gentleman who was passing and
who spoke to me about it later, had
difficulty in refraining from knocking the two foul-mouthed heads together. In this case also there were
a couple of ladies within ear-shot. A
third proof of the universality of this
practice is afforded by a scene which
took place lately on a street car in
Victoria West. Riding on the platform were some characteristic
young "toughs," smoking cigarettes
and indulging in the class of language which they doubtless thought
suitable to the role of "young men
about tOAvn." There was a man in
the car,: an elderly gentleman. Seeing that women and children were
being offended by the cads' conversation he stepped outside and ordered the conductor to put them off.
This the latter refused to do and the
boys, quick to see their advantage,
assailed the objector with ribald
abuse. It is a thousand pities that
the conductor's number was not taken so that the incident might have
been reported to the B. C. E. Ry.'s
office. It is an assured fact that the
Company would not keep such a man
on its pay-sheet if his identity could
be  proven.
Noav I have quoted above three instances only; they could be multiplied a thousand-fold. And I would
bid you mark this point. In every
one of the above-mentioned cases the
complainant was not a religious man;
far from it. My informants are all
men who have lived in the rough
and can wag a fertile tongue under
provocation. If these criticisms were
drawn from the lips of regular
church-goers and of recognised reformers, one might be tempted to
think that mole-hills had grown into
mountains and that the bad language scare was merely another
plank in the Utopian platform. But
when it is realised that justifiable indignation is felt by men who are by
no means the allies of the Reform
Party it is high time that some special effort wcre made to prevent Victoria becoming a by-word in this respect.
*   *   *
I believe that I am right in saying that the police can arrest any
person for the use of obscene language in the streets or in any public place. Stricter attention to this
phase of their duties might not be
without some good results. But, of
course, the real cure lies at home
and in the schools. If fathers will
persist in swearing before their
children the latter are sure to consider that the habitual use of swear
words is the hall-mark of man's estate and under our present system of
education the boy of high degree will
imitate the language of the hobo's
off-spring. It is the easiest habit in
the world to pick up and one of the
hardest to abandon. I will put forth
one suggestion for home use in
households where there are a lot
of children. Let a system of small
fines be instituted for every oath uttered, and make this applicable to
every member of thc family, father
and   mother   included.    Children   in
this country always seem to have
enough money to buy candy or cigarettes with and a nickel fine would
not "break" them. Let a record be
kept of the fines thus collected and
at the end of the month let the
money thus obtained be divided into
two portions, one to go to the
child who has had to pay least, and
the other half tOAvards some household luxury. Where money is
plentiful a graduated scale of fines
might be arranged; fifteen cents for
blasphemy, ten cents for filth and a
nickel for a mere, honest "D." All
the members will keep tab on each
other and in a couple of months it
will be found that the collection box
will just about provide enough for
a Hamburg steak. I have seen this
scheme in practice and I speak
from   experience.
-   *   t.
How is it that our schools do not
do more to check this growing habit? This continent is the Sunday-
school one "par excellence." The
Y. M. C. A, is a flourishing institution; there are Church societies galore and yet it is left to "The
Lounger," a person of no orthodox
persuasion and of no stable character, to preach a crusade against a
practice Avhich is steadily demoralising the Avhole community. What on
earth is the good of a man trying to
pose as a gentleman if his tongue
betrays him in every sentence?
What right have we to call our Dominion the brightest gem in the British Crown when our sons, barely out
of the lisping stage, begin to practise the line of talk just suitable to
the outcast pariah and to no other?
It is easier to make a silk purse out
of a sow's ear than a gentleman out
of the boy accustomed from his earliest infancy to the use of oaths,
blasphemy and filthy conversation,
o   *   *
I would beg to call the attention
of the Streets Committee to the following point before they go ahead
Avith their hcav paving and side-Avalk
construction. It is an admitted fact
that in bright, sunny weather thc
dazzling effect, on the eyes, of the
cement as now laid, causes temporary, and sometimes permanent injury to the optic nerve in many
cases. This could be avoided by the
addition of some colouring matter
Avhen the cement is being mixed. It
has been stated that this addition is
detrimental to the life of the cement,
but I am assured on competent authority that an addition of five per
cent, colouring matter will not have
this destructive effect. I do not include expert knowledge on this subject amongst my many other accomplishments, but before a large amount
of money is spent on the contemplated improvements, it would be
Avell to find out for certain Avhether
it Avould not be possible to procure
a mixture whicii would give a slate-
coloured effect, or which would, at
least,   dull   the   dazzling,  whiteness
complained of.
*   *   *
And, whilst we are talking about
improvements, it is pertinent to inquire how much longer Government
Street is going to look like a cross
betAveen a brickyard and a pre-his-
toric ruin. Surely by now the insurance difficulties must have been
arranged. What curse is it that
hangs over Victoria and prevents us
from ever doing anything in a hurry?
In that excellent old fable about the
hare and the tortoise we know that
"slow but sure" did the trick; but,
alas, the hares with which the Victorian tortoise has to compete, do
not go to sleep in the middle of a
half-completed furrow. Is there really any reason why the bricks and
naked walls Avhich at present ornament (sic) thc East side of our principal street should proclaim our inert
apathy to all and sundry Avho visit
our shores- I trow not. Let us therefore hope that a nod's as good as a
wink to a blind horse; even if that
quadruped be a mare.

to find houses to rent. Property
owners appear to be unwilling to let
their houses out to rent, and will
either sell or do nothing. It will be
a terrible catastrophe if the tourists
come and find nowhere to lay their

to run up a block of houses for rent

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
The New Grand
It is not often that two such ex-
lellent singers as Virgil Holmes and
llarjorie Riley appear on the vaude-
lille stage, but that a turn of this
lescription is appreciated has been
Iroved by the enthusiastic reception
Ihich has been accorded these artistes this Aveek. Both as soloists and
Juettists they stand head and shoul-
lers above the average music-hall vo-
lalists. Eva Mudge is certainly a
luick change artiste and she appears
li advantage in her sketch entitled
■At thc Sea-shore." "Dornton's Sub-
Ititute" is a very amusing little farce

lony Scot brought down the house

lllle. Silverado has been doing some
Iraceful work on the trapeze and the
IVeston-Young company have contri-
|uted the necessary nonsense Avhich
always well received.
The Majestic Theatre
Mr. Christie can always be depend-
|d on to provide something very
much out of the ordinary for the
I'ates Street house. This Aveek there
las been a beautiful series of films
llustrating the story of "The Woman
If Samaria." The subject is treated
Jery reverently and the pictures and
lolouring are excellent. Another
|plendid series has been that repre-
cnting the tragedy of Francesca da
Rimini.
Romano's Theatre
Side lights on the French Revolu-
lon have been provided for the many
Tho throng Romano's in a set of pic-
lires dealing with thc sad fate of
Baric Antoinette and the misfortunes
If the Dauphin. There has been
llcnty of comedy also, but what I
leally have enjoyed more than anything else has been the singing of
|lr. W. Brooke.   This gentleman has
line bass voice and he sings real
longs—not the wishy-washy apolo-
lies for songs which usually accom-
lany thc illustrations. He has been
lendering "Van Tromp's Broom"' in
line style and I am hoping that on a
luture occasion I shall hear him sing
lDrake's Drum" if he has it in his
portfolio. Such songs as the foregoing and others like "Who carries the
tun?", "Hybrias. the Cretan," and "I
■ear no Foe," are exactly suited to his
Toice and are a most welcome relief
Irom the average twaddle such as "In
|he Shade of the Old Apple-tree."
The Crystal Theatre
A pathetic tale Avhich reminds one
If the old fable is that told on the
Icreen as "Only in the Way" is un-
|olled.   The old mother in lies desti-
ution fails to find a happy home with
ler son and his wife and is finally
lent to an institution. Through the
Igency of her crippled grand-daugh-
Jer, however, a happy ending is
Brought about and they all live happily ever after. Business appears
lo be steadily growing at Mr. Jamie-
Ion's theatre. Every time I go there
■md I go pretty frequently, I notice
Ihat its ample proportions are well
Justified and if the popular manager
maintains the high standard which he
lias set for himself, it will not be
(ong before the welcome S.R.O. sign
vill be nightly seen before his doors.

The Man of the Hour
The most talked-of play by George
iBroadhurst, "The Man of thc Hour"
Iwhicli has been playing at the Sa-
(voy Theatre, NeAV York, for two
■years, will be the attraction at the
■Victoria Theatre on Tuesday, Feb.
114th. "The Man o fthe Hour" is a
■ timely play, full of dramatic inci-
I dents, with plenty of comedy, and
[telling a story of human  interest.
The Mayor's signature is all that
lis necessary to make the bill a fact,
land the "machine" has elected to the
[office, after a hard fight, a rich young
1 easily handled. He proves honest,
[however, and although all kinds of
[pressure are brought to bear, stead
fastly refuses to make the proposed
measure a laAV.
Turner's Orchestra
Turner's Orchestra will hold the
boards of the Victoria Theatre on
Thursday, Feb. 16th. Mr. Turner has
engaged the services of Max Steindel
the 'cellist and Mr. Raul Periera, the
violinist, and other 'outside talent.
Tliere will be 40 pieces and there will
be no doubt that all those who attend will have a thoroughly enjoyable musical evening.
"Seven Days" Is Coming
"Just about once in every twenty
years," wrote Acton Davies, the brilliant dramatic critic of the New York
Evening Sun, "a really fresh, ingenious and rollicking comedy comes to
town and knocks the risibilities of
the public out of all gear. "Seven
Days" did just that. It is one long
laugh from start to finish."
So much by way of preface to the
announcement that "Seven Days"
will be at the Victoria Theatre on
Monday, Feb. 20th. "Seven Days"
is declared by everybody, critics and
public alike, the best, the funniest,
merriest and the jolliest play ever
produced in America. Recall anything you've read v.bout it, ask any
body of the thousands and thousands
who have bee nconvulsed with gay
hysteria over it, and all will bear out
the assertion that never has so much
uproarious fun been compressed into
a play as in "Seven Days." One critic
said, "it has more genuine fun than
any tAventy others of so-called comedy successes."

BAYEUX TO CAEN
BY BOHEMIAN
(Continued from Jan. 28th)
We have been waiting a fortnight
now at Asnelles-sur-Mer and it is
time that wc again boarded the comic-opera train on our way to thc Conqueror's resting-place. From Asnelles
the road is flat, bounded on each side
by long stretches of uninteresting
country sloping up towards the south
and lying flat towards the sea on the
north. The traveller is reminded of
the Fen districts of England; hardly
a person is to be seen between the
little hamlets which lie distant from
each other about three miles; a few
peat-cutters and a stray cow or two
alone break the monotony of the
landscape, which is the more dreary
for thc absence of singing birds, an
absence due to the ravages of the
French sportsmen when out hunting
on  their  holidays.
Through such country as this we
pass on our way to Courseulles, famous in its own district for its oyster "pares" ancl its race-course. The
oyster beds lie in full view of the
main street just opposite the principal hotel. As the orders for the
succulent bivalves are given the oysters arc gathered from their watery
home and served absolutely fresh to
the customer. If desired, the latter
can go and choose his repast, pointing out one here and one there, until he has taken what he considers
from the outside to be the pick of
the market. I have always been to
Courseulles at the time of the annual fete when the races are being
held. Then the little town indeed
assumes a festive appearance; flags
are flying wherever there is a flagstaff to hang them on; merry-go-
rounds, cocoanut shies and Aunt
Sallies are in evidence, and every little gamin has a surfeit of stick-jaw
and candy. Their elders sit around
the numerous cafes indulging in
various syrups, whilst here and there
the opalescent green denotes the ab-
sintheur.
But the races are the great attraction, and how disappointed the
ordinary race-track frequenter would
be if he went, expecting to see the
sights which the very word "racetrack" conjures up! First of all the
betting is legalised and run under
Government control, thc latter taking a percentage on all monies passing through the booths. Naturally,
this takes away all the pleasure of a
gamble. At the same time it does
away with all possibility of the
book-maker becoming a Welcher. At
Courseulles all thc racing is confined to "trotters" and these seem
to bc chosen rather for their enormous size than for their pace-making proclivities. In fact I never
could make up my mind whether the
horses were so big in order to be
able to carry the gigantic jockeys,
or whether the latter were so Gargantuan in order to bc able to control their steeds. In most places
thc smaller and lighter the rider the
better jockey hc makes, but at Courseulles the preference would seem
to lie with size and weight. My
recollections of Courseulles racing,
if put on canvas, would show a prehistoric race with giants riding on
cart-horses after the style of those
pictures with which Mr. Punch
from time to time amuses us.
Here the comic-opera railway
changes its identity. From Courseulles to Luc the character of the
carriages changes. They are larger
and have seating accommodation on
the outside; moreover the train runs
on a track of its own, instead of
usurping the best part of the highway. I have never travelled on it
myself,  because   I  preferred  my  bi
cycle, and for that reason I never
penetrated to Luc; but I understand
that this is an important place owing
to the fact that there is a University
there. Moreover, it is a favorite
place for those Englishmen who
wish to study French during the
holidays, the degree there conferred
being of considerable value to anyone desirous of posing as a French
scholar.
The road to Caen is far more interesting from Courseulles onwards.
The aspect of the country has entirely changed and the last two miles
are along the tow-path of a beautiful canal. I have seldom seen a
more entrancing effect than the towers of Caen rising in the distance
through a fore-ground of water and
leafy foliage. After the quietude of
Bayeux, Caen strikes the visitor as
being a busy town, but to tell the
truth there is little to see except the
Cathedral and the tomb of William
the Conqueror. Readers will remember that William was brought from
Mantes to Caen for burial and that in
death he was denied that peace which
he never sought in life. When the
bier was brought to its last resting-
place a Norman knight, the feudal
owner of the land, stepped forward
and refused to allow the burial to
proceed until a debt incurred by the
Duke had been settled. Attached to
the cathedral is a convent where
prayers for the soul of William were
daily offered up. I have an idea
that this is still a sacred duty imposed on thc inmates, but of this I
am  not  quite  sure.
One thing I do remember for certain, viz., that there is a first-class
hotel in the city, which puts up first-
class meals and—charges ultra-first-
class prices. From Caen it is advisable to return by train to Bayeux,
unless you are anxious to bicycle
about thirty miles home.
So far I have only spoken of
places which are visited en route and
have therefore been compelled to
omit all allusion to one of the most
interesting old chateaux in the country. It is true that I cannot remember the name of it, and should
bc unable to spell it if I could, but
it is the only one in the neighborhood and is well worth a visit. It
is perfectly preserved and is open to
the public on certain days and hours.
It requires no imagination, when
standing in front of this magnificent
edifice to picture the red-capped
mobs of the Revolution, howling in
their frenzy around the many chateaux which were destroyed, whilst
their owners were dragged out to
satisfy the insatiable maw of Madame Guillotine. The chateau is full
of art treasures, but to me the house
itself and the grounds within which
it stands, appealed more than the invaluable contents. The stately lawns,
the spired roofs, the quaint and ornate entrance gates; mute emblems
of a storied age, seen through a vista of magnificent trees from the top
of the hill which leads the highway
clown to the very moat, make the
tourist ashamed of intruding his
modern "bike" amongst such surroundings. But they do not take
away his appetite, ancl here again
the excellence of the French cafe
is to be recorded. Facing the chateau is an inn where the cook is a
dream and thc proprietor is so polite that one is almost—but not
quite—ashamed to offer him such a
coarse and bulgar thing as mere
money.
Go to the Calvados country when
you have the chance. Drink the cider, cat the shrimps, sec the scenery
and  be  glad  that  you  are  a

A BRIGHT OUTLOOK
It must be apparent even to the most pessimistic observer that the
next five years will see the expenditure of a vast amount of money
throughout the Province of British Columbia on public utilities. It is possible to obtain some approximate estimate of what this expenditure will be
by careful consideration of the figures for the present year.
Railway construction, in view of the fact that there will be some 1,500
miles of track laid, will be responsible for the disbursing of about $100,-
000,000. Moreover the building, of these lines will mean the establishing
of numerous towns and cities which will all tend to the general prosperity
of the Province. And not only will these new towns spend largely for
their public utilities, but the older settlements will be compelled to make
additional appropriations for the extension and improvement of those at
present in existence. Nor has any mention yet been made of the amounts
to be expended on private enterprise.   If any average can be struck from
■the figures for the past year it will be safe to say that the next five years
will see a sum of at least $50,000,000 swallowed up by such undertakings.
Again, due regard must be paid to the developments which will take
place in the conduct of the natural industries of the Province.   Vancouver
'Island will see her coal deposits tapped in a way which could never have
been dreamed of by the old pioneers. There are minerals throughout the
Province which will be responsible for enormous expenditures; $100,000,000
is a conservative estimate of what will be spent on the mining industry
alone.   $12,000,000 was spent in 1909 in developing the lumber industry. It
,is by no means extravagant to base the computation for the next five
years at $15,000,000 per annum, giving a gross total of $75,000,000.    The
" fishing industry alone should be responsible for the spending of not less
than $5,000,000 a year.
In compiling the above figures due care has been exercised to refrain
from exaggeration, and to base them on the normal increase which is in
evidence every year. When, therefore, it is considered that a Province
with a population of less than half a million is anticipating the expenditure of about $600,000,000 it is not to be wondered at that there is a spirit
of optimism abroad.
GRAND FORKS
Notwithstanding the unsatisfactory conditions prevailing in the copper
industry during 1910, the Granby property gave a good account of itself
with operating profits estimated at $460,000, or at the rate of $3 per share
■on the 148,000 shares outstanding.
The company is now mining and smelting its ore at lower cost than
any other time in its history. In the early days it cost $4.77 per ton; for
the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1910, the cost had been brought down to
$2.50 per ton. During the latter months of the 1910 calendar year the cost
was further reduced to $2.39 per ton.
C. P. R. STOCK
The Wassermann-Levy guesses of 300 or 400 for C. P. R. are thus
commented upon by Charles Head & Co., at the request of the Star:
Financial Editor, Montreal Star:—
Sir,—We are glad to express our opinion of the quality of Canadian
Pacific Railway stock as an investment, and to go on record as great
believers in the future of the property, but as to whether the stock may
sell at 300 or 400 dollars a share, that is something upon which we cannot
venture to express an opinion.
Undoubtedly, as the necessities of the road demand, new stock will be
issued, and we think it extremely probable that the necessities of the
country will call for large expenditures of capital, and building of connecting lines, which will prevent the stock from reaching anything like these
quotations, but that the rights in the course of time, if added to the present price of the stock, might eventually make the investment worth these
figures.
For the time being we are afraid that the Canadian bankers have
pushed matters a little too fast in the development of their industrial fields,
and that it would be the part of wisdom to act cautiously with such ventures in the immediate future.
BRITISH COLUMBIA CONTRIBUTES
Large Share of Canada's Mineral Production—New Railways and Mining
Dividends
The estimated mineral production in British Columbia during 1910 had
a total value of $26,183,505. If the revised returns shall prove this estimate
to be approximately correct, as is believed they will do, the total for the
year will be the highest yet recorded in the history of mining in British
Columbia, for it will compare favorably with that for 1907, which, at
. $25,882,560, has been the largest yearly total on record. So says Mr. Wm.
Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, in his explanatory review and
estimate.
That province continues to maintain its average proportion of the
mineral production of that of the whole of the Dominion for the twenty-live
years 1886-1910, included in the published official records, at $1,120,000,000
. (which allows about $95,000,000 for 1910), it would appear that Brit'sh
' Columbia may fairly claim to have produced between 27 and 28 per cent.
of this large sum. The aggregate value of the mineral production of this
province for all years to 1910, inclusive, is nearly $374,000,000. Deducting
the total value of the minerals—chiefly for coal and placer gold—produced prior to 1886, which was nearly $64,000,000, British Columbia's
approximate aggregate for the twenty-five years is left at $310,000,000,
which is between 27 and 28 per cent, of that of the whole of Canada. It
is a striking fact, as indicating the substantial increase in the value of the

lemarks to the managers of city managers. The occasion was the trial
[!. f a man on four charges of passing bad cheques. These were not torn
ifrom a regular cheque book, but apparently obtained by the prisoner in the
ibffices of the various banks on which they were drawn. Bank executives
Knight well consider this matter, as a large number of forgeries may be
j:raced to that source. European visitors to America are astonished to
lljee the freedom with which mank cheques are accessible to every Tom,

CONSULS FOR SMALL INVESTORS
It is stated that the British Government is considering measures to
■popularize consols and make them easily available to small investors by
[{issuing to bea'rer bonds in denominations of five and ten pounds. These
-may be purchased at post-offices, where the coupons also can be cashed,
free of the income tax. Thsi reform has long been advocated as a means
of arresting the continued decline in the price of consols, which heretofore,
owing to difficulty of negotiation, have been held mainly by wealthy
individuals and financial institutions.
DOMINION BANK
A good financial statement was presented to the shareholders of .the
Dominion Bank at the annual meeting on Wednesday. The net profits for
the year ended December 31st show a substantial increase, those for the
past year being $659,300, against $620,927 in 1909. These are earnings at
Ithe rate of i6}4 per cent, on paid-up capital, an increase of 1 per cent,
over the previous year. Adding the profits to $295,766, the balance of
profit and loss account carried forward from the previous year, a sum
pf $955,$67 was available for distribution. Four quarterly dividends at the
rate of 12 per cent, per annum absorbed $480,000 of that amount, and with
£170,000 written off the bank premises the directors are able to carry forward ot profit and loss account the sum of $305,067. The deposits which
how total $49,300,000 increased during the year by nearly $4,000,000. The
:ash assets of the bank amount to $11,000,000. The immediately available
assets total $22,000,000 or 41^ per cent, of total liabilities to the public.
The total assets of the bank at the end of the past year amouned to
£62,677,000.
NORTHERN CROWN BANK
The net profits for the year ended December 31st, 1910, of the Northern Crown Bank, which continues to make good progress, were $258,144.
|This amount is obtained after deducting management expenses, tax pay-
nents and making necessary provision for interest due to depositors and
I'or doubtful debts.    Dividends accounted for $110,169 and $50,000 was
transferred to the reserve fund, which now totals $150,000. The contingency
fund and officers' pension fund benefited by $75,000 and $5,000 respectively,
lind the bank was then able to carry forward at credit of profit and loss
laccount a sum of $170,649.   The Northern Crown Bank is getting a large
jshare of deposits, the total on December 31st being $n,977,59I-   At the
Isame time it is extending ample credit accommodation, current loans and
■discounts at the same date amounting to $11,761,445, and call loans to
|$596,8io.  The statement makes a satisfactory exhibit of a growing Western
Institution of substance.

BOOK NOTES
Miss Agnes Deans Cameron continues her literary activity. Her latest
publication is entitled "The Ncav
North," being the travels of a woman
through the heart of Canada. The
book is published by Appleton & Co.,
London and New York, and is highly
reA'iewcd in The Standard of Empire
dated December 20th, 1910. Among
the many goocl things which that
paper says of Miss Cameron's book
the following brief extract is typical:
" 'The New North' is astonishingly
alive and interesting, and we are not
surprised that all America should be
talking about about the book. A woman's high spirits, clear observation,
and shrewd, fearless mother-wit pervade the Avhole volume."

TOPICAL TRIFLES-XV.
(By  Onlooker)
At the recent recall election in
Seattle resulting in the defeat -of
Mayor Gill, one of the most interesting features seems to havc been
the presence of women at the polls
for the first time in that city. They
are reported to have polled about
one third of the vote, and in consequence they have become quite a
factor in municipal affairs. Though
the women did not all vote for Dill-
ing, a large majority of them did, and
judging by the serious nature of the
charges against Gill it Avould seem
that they cast their vote on the right
side.
The actions and motives of voting
women are watched, speculated and
commented on Avith such interest that
one might suppose they were freaks
or strange animals whose actions
under unusual conditions might be
studied  with   interest  by  scientists.
In an account of the election referred to, it was reported that the
women Avere appealed to by the
Churches and Clubs, and then went
on to say it Avas admitted that the
majority of women voted as their
husbands did. It may be surmised
that the appeal of the Churches and
Clubs Avas chiefly to the women as
Avomen in regard to moral reform,
and the ballot showed that they were
successful in their appeal. Would
it not have been more correct to say
that the majority of husbands voted
as their wives  did?
The writer of this article is by no
mens a militant suffragist, but thinks
that it is possible for a woman to
have an opinion of her own.
There are more troubles and another scare for the workingman in
the shape of a number of foreigners
who are reported to be looking for
Avork at the rate of $2.25 a day,
against the $2.75 wage now prevalent. When the Chinese head tax was
imposed, Mr. White Workingman
thought that Mr. John Chinaman
was effectually disposed of, and that
thenceforth there would be no one in
his path. Within the last few years
the benefit accruing from the higher
scale of wages has been reduced by
the increased cost of living, and one
of the results probably not foreseen
by the tradesman and workingman,
has been the driving of the man who
used to live on his income into the
ranks of the wage earner.
The idea of the man of luxury
having to get out and work is quite
delightful to the labourer, but when
that man gets the labourer's job,
then we shall have another whine!
It is a noticeable fact that the traditional upper classes whose sphere
of active work was limited to a few
professions are now entering freely
into every kind of commercialism,
and unless clerking is better paid in
the near future, the man in the white
collar Avill don a flnannel shirt and a
pair of overalls for preference. An
eight hour day would look good to a
bank clerk at the end of the month.
The bank clerk, or civil servant
has to be a man of good education,
he has to be well dressed, he is expected to belong to the best clubs,
dine at the best restaurants, and to
comply with various other obligations to society which require money.
Compared with the expenses imposed, the earnings of common labour
are greater than those of clerking.
If the doctrines of Socialism Avere
put into universal practice, the results might not be so satisfactory as
its exponents would like to think.

charming theory, but the envious de-
spoilers of the rich might easily find
themselves beaten at their own game.
A correspondent in last week's
,issue of the "Week" Informed us
that the wife or Avidow of a knight
Avas not rightly styled "Lady," but
should be called "Dame." "Dame" is
a title equivalent to Lady, Madam,
Mistress, Miss. It is used as a form
of address for a woman of rank, the
wife of a knight or baronet, the mistress of a household, or of a dame
school, or an elderly woman, the female head of an institution. But,
as the correspondent Avas told in an
editorial note, the wife of a baronet
is entitled to the courtesy title of
"Lady."
The cakes and pies made by the
good "Dame" known to Victorians
are Avorthy of the Avife of a belted
earl, and consistent with the tenor
of the above theories, perhaps she is.
