THE WEEK., SATURDAY, MARCH 27,  1909
One Dollar Per Annum
Serious
latter.
A communication has been
addressed,   by  the   parties
interested, to tlie Council of
the  College of  Physicians
Ind Surgeons for British Columbia, of
Ivhich Dr. A. P. Proctor, of Vancouver
Is President, and Dr. Fagan of Victoria,.
[Secretary, demanding an investigation into'
lhe recent conduct of a case in tlie City
If Nelson.    The physician in charge of
lhe case was Dr. Wilson, ancl his assistant,
|)r. Arthur.   A valuable life was lost, and
jhe citizens are up in arms in consequence
if the medical conduct of the ease.   The
■Nelson Daily News, whicli should have
been the first to publish the facts and to
pice public opinion refused to do so al-
hough personally appealed to by members
if the bereaved family.   The Week reluct-
liitly fulfils a duty which should have been
iischarged by the local press, in giving
jironiinence to the above facts for the purpose of ensuring that measures of publicity whicli  is necessary for the public
■safety, and also to focus attention upon
lhe* Council of the medical fraternity in
prcler that it may be seen how it will deal
Ivith one of the most serious cases which
lias ever arisen in the medical practice of
tf_3 Province.   If the Council thoroughly
Investigates tlie matter and deals out even-
Landed justice, it will be allowed to rest
there; if not, The Week will publish the
tacts, however painful a task that may
|>rove.
Expectation is running high
Reciprocity       in the direction of recipro-
:n Coal.       .   city iu coal with the United
States.   It is an old subject
vhich has cropped up so regularly as to
leserve classification with the perennials;
t is also a big question to look at all
•ound.    There is no doubt that the bal-
ince of the advantage would rest with Ca-
lada because Canadian mines could serve
far larger territory in the United States
;han could be reached by American mines
in Canada.    Por instance, the mines of
Nova Scotia could supply the ten million
;ons a year consumed in the New England
States, whilst those of Alberta and British
Columbia could develop a market at least
.qual in extent in the Western States.
Ihe only Canadian market which would
3e invaded, by American coal lies between
Winnipeg and Montreal, where there are
0.0 deposits on this side the line, and the
net result would be to give cheaper fuel
to the Canadian consumer.   Free eoal into
the States was almost an accomplished fact
as long ago as 1893 when in the last 1110-
uents of the Cleveland administration it
was vetoed by the Senate, at the instance
of the Ohio and Pennsylvania operators.
Today it stands a better chance and would
mean an enormous development in Britisli
Columbia.    The only opposition to free
coal on this side of the line is on the part
of the coal operators of the Maritime Provinces, who contend that their industry
will be destroyed as their Eastern market
would be captured by the Pennsylvania
operators.   They also urge that they have
invested sixty-five million dollars in the
trade whilst the B. C. operators have only
invested about a third of this amount.
The ansAver to tbis is that American coal
could not possibly oust the Canadian product except on the supposition that the
latter is trying to maintain an unreasonable price.   Nova Scotia coal is conveyed
to Montreal, which is its chief market, up
the St. Lawrence, at a cost not exceeding
seventy-five cents a ton.    American coal
cannot possibly be carried to Montreal at
a less cost than $2.    But while the Pennsylvania operators sell their coal for $2 a
ton at the pit's mouth the  Nova  Scotia
operators are not satisfied with less than
$3, and in many instances $3.50. On the
other hand, British Columbia operators
cannot find a sufficient market for their
product without exporting a large tonnage,
and in view of the enormous deposits yet
undeveloped, and the total, absence of a
high grade coal from the Western States
there is no reason why lucrative trade'
should not be established. At the present
moment all ey esare turned towards British Columbia, there is an extensive de,-
mand for coal properties, and eqnal activity- in seeking for railway charters to
establish a connection between the coal
deposits of the Canadian West ancl the
markets to the South. While it is not
permissible to discuss this question from
a sectional standpoint, and recognizing to
the full that it can only be settled upon a
National basis, it is nevertheless clear,
Avhen everything is taken into account, that
the loss to Nova Scotia would be problematical; and the gain both to Central Canada ancl the Western Provinces, enormous. On this basis the Canadian Government would make no mistake in settling
the question in favour of "free coal."
Eton and
After.
This is the season of Lent,
a time when all sorts and
conditions   of   men,   even
newspaper editors are supposed to tone down their acerbities, ancl
display a little of   that   "charity  which
hopeth all things."   Viewed in this light
the Victoria Daily Times could well afford
to moderate the violence of its attack upon
the Bishop of Columbia, the more so since
during the present week it lias been victimised in a manner which should engender a spirit of forgiveness for others who
have   been   similarly   unfortunate.   The
Times has urged again and again that the
Bishop shoulcl have known that he was being imposed upon.   That his knowledge of
human nature should have enabled him to
have detected an imposture, and if it can
be shown that an editor, who is called
upon daily to  differentiate between the
various classes of mankind, who are always
seeking to impose upon his good nature,
has been grossly taken in then at least he
will be able to sympathize, probably for the
first time in his career, with an Anglican
Bishop, who cannot claim to be "a man
of the World."    The Times claims that
the confession made to the Bishop was so
"raw" that the veriest tyro should have
known that it was bogus.   What shall be
said of the editor who allows himself to
be imposed upon by an alleged English
public school man, an old Etonian, whose
letter of less than a hundred lines contains
at least twenty-seven words and sentences
whicli are either positively ungrammatical
or which violate the laws of composition ?
It may be interesting to apply a few tests
to   the   letter   headed    'An   Anglican's
Views" and signed "Etonian," which appeared in the Times of Saturday last. The
writer    speaks    of    an    "ex   cathedra"
conclusion, that is something new.    "A
fair amount of shekels."   Then he allows
himself to pen a sentence which no High
School boy in Victoria would, attach his
name to—"Bishop Perrin never acquired
the  latest  device  at  any public  school
watched over by such a man as Arnold of
Rugby, Farrar of Marlborough, and many
others."    The writer goes on to say that
the Bishop has "connected our church
with the arena of Canadian partisan politics."    Here the old Etonian has been
singularly unfortunate in the selection of
his verb, to say the least of it, and it
would be interesting to know how to connect a church with an arena.   What would
the examiner say of the following sentence
—*"But our class do not pursue elections in
any feverish manner."   Etonian is as weak
in his selection of prepositions as of verbs
when  he   declares   that—"our   religious
leader lands us all into a precious nice
predicament."    The "precious nice" is a
delicious combination which strikes The
AVeek as quite original.   These are times,
however, when Etonian makes a frantic
effort to demonstrate that if not educated
he is at least English and he rings into
use a phrase which burlesque actors not
infrequently place in the mouth of the
humorous   stage   Englishman.    No   one
could doubt his nationality after reading
the following sentence—"the whole matter
of the forged telegram is too beastly
nauseous to warrant recapitulation" after
which no one will be surprised to learn
that the action of the Bishop ' stupifies"
Etonian altogether. -Perhaps the most conclusive evidence that the writer is really
an English public school inan is to ba
found in the classical phrases with which
at intervals he embellishes his communication.   There are four and are so recondite that only a scholar could have unearthed them.    The AVeek repeats them
in the order in which they appear: "Ex
Cathedra—Coran publico—-Pourquoi Pas
(sic)—0 tempora, 0 mores."   In his concluding sentence Etonian opines that "by
now the Bishop's cheeks must be tingling
with mortification."    Perhaps so, but the
idea is a new one, and is a further tribute
to the originality of the writer, who in
spite of his public school education assuredly   misquoted   the   classical   reference
whicli may possibly have been lingering
in his mind.    AVhen the editor of the
Times has been able to explain satisfactorily, even to himself, how he could have
been imposed upon by such a farrago of
bad grammar and worse composition he
may possibly feel a little more charitably
inclined   towards   the Bishop—rpourquoi
pas.
and if it is at all commensurate with the
requirements of the occasion, and with the
resources of the Dominion, we shall leap
at one bound to the front rank of Empire
Defenders and realise in a day the dream
of nationhood upon the threshold of which
Kipling declared only a year ago that
Canada stood.
Sir AVilfrid Laurier has the
Canada and chance of his lifetime. He
The Navy.        ]las hacl a brilliant public
career and despite the dissatisfaction felt by the Conservative party
with his policy on certain important matters no fair minded man will deny that
he has achieved greatness and that his
name will go down to history as the foremost representative in his day of Greater
Britain. There is one point, however, on
which many people have not been satisfied,
nor will those who are not blinded by
partisan zeal soon forget that when the
South African war broke out the action
of the Premier in offering assistance was
not spontaneous, and followed, rather than
led, public opinion. Since then Sir Wilfrid has clone much, or at any rate said
much to remove that impression and ho
now has the opportunity to do something
really great which would appeal to tlie
sentiment of Canada and seize the imagination of the Empire. He can remove the
reproach which has, with too much truth,
been urged against the Dominion, that it
was willing to accept enormous sacrifices
in Imperial Defence at the hands of tlie
Mother Country without contributing anything in return. The bellicose attitude
of Germany has furnished an occasion for
rallying the loyal sentiment of the whole
Empire, and that every section of that
Empire will respond cannot for a moment be doubted. But Canada should
have been the first, and still should be the
most generous on every ground which can
be set forth. This is the time of Canada's
responsibility and Canada's opportunity-
Public opinion will sustain the Premier
in any offer he may make, however costly.
The great Methodist Church
A Theological 0f Canada is in danger of
Sensation. beiag- rent in twain.   Theo
logical   Conservatism   and
Theological Radicalism have locked horns,
and the struggle begins to look very much
like a fight to a finish.   The two contestants are Dr. Carman, the venerable and
revered superintendent of the Methodist
Church, and Dr. George Jackson, a brilliant young Edinburgh minister, recently
settled in Toronto.    The main point at
issue is whether the earlier books of the
Old Testament are historical or allegorical,
but the broader question is more far-reaching and  involves a re-statement of the
theology of the Methodist Church from the
standpoint of the advanced thinker of today.   The situation is a serious one both
for the Methodist Church  and for the
country since it means the lining up in
opposition camps of men of learning, of
influence, and of deep conviction, with the
bitterness and cleavage which inevitably
follow religious controversies.   The secular
press has rushed into the fray, not so
much because of its competency or liking
to engage in a theological argument as
because it can have no sympathy with the
ferocious  personal  attack made  by  Dr.
Carman upon the courageous young,minister.    Such an  attack  is   alien  to the
spirit of the age, and while it can never
be justified may be explained upon the
ground that so orthodox ancl venerable a
theologian as  Dr.   Carman,' who  is  approaching his eightieth year, could hardly
be expected to view without alarm what he
undoubtedly regards as the laying of unholy hands on the ark.    The AVeek does
not feel either competent or called upon
to make any pronouncement on the merits
of the dispute, it would however respectfully point out that while the secular press
may defend Dr. Jackson against unfair
methods of attack, it will easily ancl quickly fall into hopeless error if it follows tlie
lead of so influential a paper as tlie Toronto Daily News which roundly declares
that theology is not essential to religion
The history of civilization proves1 tliat the
foundation of every religion is a creed;
ancl that every creed, a belief in whicli has
inspired men  to  their uplifting,  had  a
theological basis.
The Colonist is dazzled by
Oratorical vvhal  it is pleased to term
Pyrotechnics. "The Oratorical Pyrotechnics" of Mr. Joseph Martin,
and is so enthusiastic about his post-prandial utterances that it definitely assigns
him a portfolio in the Asquith Ministry if
the latter is sustained at the polls. The
Colonist, perhaps unconsciously, has made
a fairly safe prophecy, for if Mr. Martin's
portfolio is as doubtful as the success of
the Asquith Administration, a very lengthy
interval will elapse before the hero of a
thousand fights, including one with a gripsack, figures in an English Ministry. Enthusiasm is always beautiful, and. in the
Springtime seasonable, but it should not
be allowed to run to seed. Mr. Martin
may be, as the Colonist says, "The very
incarnation of energy and daring," but a
daring duckling does not make an ideal
Cabinet Minister according to English
standards. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1908
Sporting Comment
The annual Bench Show, under the
auspices of the Victoria Kennel Club,
will be held in the A.O.U.W. Hall on
the 6th, 7th and 8th of April and
judging from the number of entries
that are being received it should be
the largest ever held in this city. It
is not only the number of entries that
is making the show a success but the
grade of dogs that will be shown
will also be much better, for with
the cancellation of the Seattle Show,
many canines from the other side wi
be shown here which otherwise would
not have entered. The management
is using every effort to make the slow
a success and it will well repay a visit
from any one, not only those who
own dogs.
The controversy that is now going
on in reference to the challenge issued
by Sweeney Bros, to Frank Baylis, the
long distance champion of this city,
is to say the least very amusing. Why
any aspirant for championship honors
should endeavor to insist on making
conditions is hard to understand. If
those who are endeavouring to bring
the runners together, will only look
at the matter in the true light they
will see that the Sweeney Bros, are
presuming on an unknown reputation,
while Baylis is well within his rights
when hc insists that the race should
be run on the conditions named by
him. Besides this the conditions mad
by Baylis are very fair, and if the
Sweeney Bros, want to be "Cocks of
the Walk," they will have to race
Baylis under his conditions.
It only requires those interested to
look over some of the events in which
championships were concerned to sec
that the champion seldom allows his
adversaries that advantage. Did Burns
allow Johnson to make the terms of
the fight in Australia? The same with
Attell and Owen Moran.
The Tecumseh Lacrosse Club of Toronto which has challenged for the
Minto Cup is asking the champions
from Westminster if July ist and 3rd
are satisfactory—they are not insisting.
Champions of B. C. is the proud
title that is now held by the Victoria
Ladies' Hockey Club, which they won
from Vancouver at Oak Bay last Saturday in a very spirited contest in
which the locals showed decidedly to
the best advantage. I wish to add my
congratulations to the many that have
been extended to the team, but in this
case I do not wish to overlook those
players, who were not on the team,
but who showed true sporting spirit
and turned out on every occasion to
give the regulars that practice that
they required to make them win.
While the eleven players who composed thc team on Saturday won the
game and deserve great credit for the
work they did those who assisted
them should not be overlooked.
With the exception of two or three
of the basket ball teams the ladies
of the Hockey Club put in more
genuine, hard practice than any other
team representing Victoria on the
sporting field this winter, and their
success is entirely due to these efforts, in making this statement I do
not fear contradiction as it is a well
known fact and it would be a good
idea if the teams which will appear
on the fields representing Victoria this
summer would follow the example of
the Ladies' Hockey Club.
The loss of the Pacific Club by
fire a few nights ago is regretted by
nearly every Victorian as it has the
reputation of being one of the best
social clubs on the Coast. Now, while
thc members arc without a home, they
have a brilliant opportunity of following the example set by Seattle,
Portland and San Francisco to form
a Club not only for social purposes
but one that will cover athletics. It
is well known that the members of
the J. B. A. A. are endeavoring to secure a new building; why could not
the representatives from these two
associations meet and form some plan
whereby an amalgamation could take
place and join together in erecting and
equipping a Club that would not only
be a credit to themselves but to the
city. It has been tried in the Seattle
Athletic Club, the Multonomah Club

CORRESPONDENCE.
Victoria Water.
March 23, 1909.
iditor The Week.
(Sir,—In your issue of the 20th you
Dnour me by a very kind reference,
jir   which   1   am   sincerely   obliged,
lour comments, however, on my let-
:r   in   Friday's   Colonist  are  some-
hat puzzling, so much so that I can
nly  conclude  that  we ,must be  "A
iel   sweldin."    You charge me with
aving "roundly stated" that the price
ssured to the Company by the settle-
Jient was inadequate.   I can only say
liat  I  fail to find in my letter any
|uch    statement,    round   or    square,
/hat I did state was that the " Company considered it so," which fact is
urely evidenced by their opposition,
"he opinions which you quote, while
ptitled to  every respect, cannot be
aid to be conclusive.   As to the basis
f valuation, Jove's Mentor will ex-
tisc my saying that his statement as
fact, a truly spherical one by the
'ay,   is   open   to   the   same   remark.
1*o is the pious opinion that "No one
as a greater interest in, or is more
npressed than the Government, etc.'
('our last point that "No Government
eeking to retain the confidence of the
ountry could allow 40,000 people to
e held up for an adequate water sup-
*ly" might be true enough if the "hold
p" had any existence in fact.
I think, however, the word hardly
|*pplies in a case where the owners
lave   been   offering,   for   some   two
I fears, to go to arbitration under the
Irovisions of an existing Act specially
ramed for application to water ques-
ions.
I   can  only  repeat  that  I  see  no
!|ustification for the course taken by
Ihe Government. Your apparent
knowledge of the amount of compensation to be paid to the Company,
joes to enforce my opinion that the
natter has been virtually settled by
special legislation, and that to call
'such a settlement "arbitration" is -i

nately receives less or more than it
demanded does not in my view affect
lthe principle at stake.

[The justification   for   the   course
taken by the Government lies in the
tfact that Victoria needs a water supply and legislation was the only means
Df forcing the hand of both parties.
The question as to the fairness of the
price assured need not be further discussed. In common with controversialists of lesser culture, Mr. Musgrave conveniently ignores the main

Oriental Cream
OB MAOICAI. BEATTTXHES
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.

THE WORD REVIVER SPELLS THE
SAME BACKWARDS OR FORWARDS
Ever think what a goocl reviver is a glass of good Champagne?
When in pain mentally or physically, just try a "split" of Mumm's
Extra Dry and you'll think your pain was only sham'. If you have
that tired feeling after "la grippe," or if the spring "blueness"
is upon you, try Mumm's for a reviver. You can pronounce
Mumm's backwards also if you wish. It's a good, quiet appelation
worthy of the best wine produced. I'Silence is Golden," so is
Mumm's Champagne. The Champagne market is somewhat quiet
just now, but "Mumm's the word," because the class of people who
order Champagne is the class who desire the best.
Order a "split" of Mumm's Extra Dry today at your
club, safe, bar or hotel and see if it does not prove a
reviver in the best sense of the word. Your dealer can
supply you with a case of "splits" for home consumption.

W. BLAKEMORE..Manager and Editor
On Silence.
By BOHEMIAN.
Volumes have been written on the
power of oratory, but who can recall
a book on the power of silence? Yet
it would not be difficult to prove by
apt citation from the pages of history
that silence is offtimes more impressive than speech. This is true even
of silence as opposed to mere words,
but if the forces of nature be impressed into the argument it is still
more  emphatically true.
Speech is given us to express our
thoughts and it may fairly be argued
that its effect is positive while the
influence of silence must be negative. This, however, is almost, if not
quite, beside the mark when one is
considering its influence.
It is easy to recall the proverb,
"A soft answer turneth away wrath,''
but it is only a step further to the
silence which is often severest the
rebuff to bluster and brag.
Who cannot recall the thrilling, and
one might say killing effect of silence,
on the part of the auditors at the
conclusion of some tall story? No
words, no retort, no condemnation
could be half so effective.
Silence is always significant, the
same cannot be said of words which
on a very high authority are often
"Sound and fury signifying nothing."
The silence of an audience under the
spell of oratory or emotion is at least
as impressive as the spoken word or
the thought which it conveys.
What criminal doubts the significance of silence as he waits with
every nerve a-quiver for the lips of
his judge to part and pronounce sentence? So great is the strain that not
infrequently the link of consciousness
snaps before the silence is broken.
But these are more or less involuntary silences, unpremeditated, and
unmeasured. I started out to make
my point that most of us fall into
the error of supposing that words are
the only, and if not quite that the
best, means of conveying thoughts.
I should like to enforce my argument
with a reference to the lessons of
nature and the teachings of revealed
truth. Nature is not less impressive
even if less awe-inspiring in her
zephyrs than in her storms. The
Euroclydon may tear up trees by the
roots and lay prostrate the giant forest or the busy city, but while the
devastion produced shocks the observer and arrests his attention by
the laying on of violent hands, not
less impressive and scarcely less terrifying is the absolute silence of the
mine or the cavern.
The human ear is attuned to sound
and its absence in some mysterious
way operates to disturb the nerve
centres and produce abnormal conditions which are as inimical as they
are unsettling.
The application of these scattered
thoughts seems to me to be neither
far-fetched nor inapposite. There is
excellent authority for answering a
fool according to his folly. That,
however is so simple a prescription,
and so common as to lack distinction
and originality.
There is equally high authority and
precedent for answering a fool by
preserving silence. The latter-day
victim of vituperation and persecution who has the courage and the
wisdom to adopt this method can jus-
tifyliis action on unassailable grounds.
Beyond this, however, he will probably furnish an opportunity for his
persecutor to show how insincere is
the attack and how effective the rejoinder.
It is difficult to score against one
who opens not his mouth, and who
answers not a word. His opponent
may reiterate, he may vituperate, he
may foam at the mouth, he may wax
furious and even ungrammatical, but
his attacks, like the waves dashing
against the rocks, are only thrown
back upon himself. Great is the influence of a determined silence.
I might pursue the subject further
and shew how it is possible to make
use of this weapon in an offensive as
well as a defensive campaign, but
many suns will rise and set before it
becomes a popular weapon in that
arena.
For the present I will content myself with noting that the fury of the
assailant is in inverse ratio to the
indifference of the assailed; and the
more important and conspicuous the
person attacked the more effective the
rejoinder of silence.
One may fairly speculate how much
good printer's ink may be wasted, and
how many columns of a daily journal
may be filled ere the expletives "give
out," and the reiteration becomes a
weariness even to the hireling.
Or further, how long the supply of
obliging anonymous correspondents
necessary to the conduct of such a
campaign would hold out. But the
speculation would be idle, and perhaps vain since there is ground for
believing that the family resemblance
of many such indicates a common origin, if not a common author who is
impelled like Sisyphus to roll a stone
up the political hill until his task is
done.
The New Grand.
Next week's bill at the New Grand
will include the Great Stadium Trio
in their new gymnastic display, introducing their sensational triple Roman Ring act; Iva Donette and her
wonderful dog, in an original oddity,
"The Colored Washerwoman and her
Canine Pickaninny"; Eugene Gear &
Co., presenting the college playlet,
"At Yale"; Graham and Norton, singing duo; Nellie Brown, singing and
dancing soubrette; Thos. J. Price, in
the illustrated song, "Montana"; two
new Moving Pictures, entitled "Beauty and the Beast," aud "Hurry Up
Please," and selections from "The
Red Mill," as an overture by the
orchestra.
The Differences.
My neighbor eateth lobster,
He eateth rarebit, too;
He loveth brie and edam
And hideth them from view.
My neighbor wakes at midnight
And shrieks with sudden pain;
Quick comes the costly medic
And treats him for ptomaine.
I eat my humble dinner,
My chop and beans and pie;
Perhaps with indigestion
I suffer by and by.
The good old family doctor
My case in hand doth take;
And, as he spreads a plaster,
He calls  it stomach ache.
No  Hope.
"Wot's hydrophobia?" asked Weary
Watkins, as he spelled out the article in the piece of newspaper
which he had picked up.
"It means hatred of water," replied his pal, "and it is a fatal disease."
"Then run for a doctor," cried
Weary, as he fell back with a groan,
"I'm a dead man."
Decided Improvement.
Scribbles — I understand young
Rhymer is doing much better than
formerly in the poetry line.
Dribbles—Why, he told me he
hadn't written a line for six months.
Scribbles—Yes, he told me thc same
thing."
Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child.
The Fulton Sun gives this as the
result of interviewing 30 business men
ancl 30 loafers: The 30 business men
had all been flogged freely by their
parents when they were boys, while
out of the 30 loafers 27 had been
"mamma's darlings" and the other
three had been raised by their grandmothers.
Friendly Greetings.
"Well, by Jove, this is lucky!" cried
a young man, as hc heartily slapped
the back of a gentleman whom he
overtook  in   the   street.    The  other
turned round sharply and angrily,
showing the face of a complete
stranger.
"I thought it was my friend Jackson,"  said the young man, confused.
"All right," said the stranger; and
he doubled the young man up with
a  tremendous poke in the waistcoat.
"What did you do that for?"
"I thought that was what Jackson
ought to do," remarked the stranger
as  he resumed his  interrupted  walk.
The Easiest Way.
She—And knowing my sentiments
on the subject, did that odious Mr.
Binks insult you by offering you a
drink?
He—That's what Mr.  Binks did.
She—And how did you resent it?
He (meekly)—I swallowed the insult.

An Economical and
Artistic Covering
for the Floor of
Your Bedroom
One of the most popular bedroom floor coverings we have sold
during the past two years has been
this Fibre Matting.
There is so much that can be
said in favor of this style of floor
covering.   It—
Sews together and turns under.
Does not break or require binding.
Has no odor or germs of disease.
Is double faced—double wear.
Heavy furniture does not. break it.
Comes in art colors and artistic
designs.
It is so superior to China and
Jap mattings that it is fast supplanting these. The slight extra
initial cost is soon forgotten in the
long and excellent service it gives.
Nice and warm in Winter and
delightfully cool and nice in Summer.
Come in and let us show you
the pretty new patterns and further explain its merits.
Prices range at, per yard—
50c. to 75c.
NEW MUSLINS
The new Muslins and other curtain materials for Spring have arrived. A visit to the Drapery Department is interesting these days

this season's newest things in cur-
tainings.   It's a pleasure.

English Brass Bed.   Shown on our fourth floor.

range is just as broad as the choice
of styles, for we have them from
$4 to $30.
BRASS BEDS

one would expect to see in big
centres. The best from two continents are shown. Prices $35 to $120.

I have been a little amused at the
conclusion drawn by a correspondent
of The Colonist that the conspicuous
attention paid to Admiral Evans during his recent viisit to Victoria was
evidence of the Americanization of
Canada. Such a conclusion is in my
humble judgment distinctly evidential
of a weak intellecet, since the man
who forms it is obviously incapable of
putting two and two together.
The only reason that Admiral
Evans loomed up so large in the eyes
of the public was because he was well
advertised. The parties responsible
for getting up the entertainment took
time by the forelock and captured the
local press. The personality of Admiral Evans and especially his reputation has a more or less impulsive,
daring, fighter is well known; at any
rate over the American Continent,
and many people were anxious to see
a man who had attracted considerable
public attention. Surely the newspaper
correspondent does not suggest that
a British Admiral, if he could have
been induced to mount the platform,
which is more than doubtful, would
not have attracted at least as much
attention and have received as enthusiastic a welcome. If there are
no stronger evidences of Americanization than this Canada will remain
British for a long while to come.
Before passing from this subject I
may be permitted to say that it would
be a mistake to take too seriously
the platform   utterances   of Admiral
Evans. He was interesting, and as a
narrative his address was entertaining,
but I should say that his opinions
might fairly be classed as a negligible
quantity. He naturally waved the
Union Jack, but he could hardly do-
less on a Canadian platform; even
the cheapest kind of .vaudeville artist
does it. His opinion on Christian
missions, if they could be taken seriously, might be regarded as an insult to an intelligent audience, but
Admiral Evans is not a man to be
taken seriously, at any rate when he
is expounding views. The Bishop of
Columbia has shown rather neatly
that the President of the United
States entertains and has admirably
expressed a widely different view.
Those correspondents who have
courteously criticized my comment on
the St. Patrick banquet at the Dallas
Hotel are entitled to an answer, they
admit the delay which was the chief
point of my complaint. The times
quoted in my article were undoubtedly taken from the hotel clock, and I
must plead ignorance of the fact, stated by one correspondent, that some
wag had tampered with the clock to
the extent of three-quarters of an
hour. With reference to the quality
of the banquet, I said nothing, therefore it is beside the question to argue
that it was first rate, a circumstance
which I am perfectly willing to admit
even on the authority of my critics.
My general complaint still stands
unanswered and indeed unquestioned;
it is that there is a long-standing difficulty in arranging for a public function of any kind, which includes a
feed; that, generally speaking, the hotels will not undertake it, and to my
knowledge some of them have positively refused to do so on any terms.
It is no reflection 011 the restaurants
to say that they lack adequate accommodation for 150 to 200, which is ex
actly what I said. It is still further
a fact, and was so stated by the retiring president of the Canadian Club
at the last annual meeting, that the
difficulty of arranging for a luncheon
had been so great as to be almost insuperable, and has discouraged the
committee in carrying out that part
of their programme. I, therefore, revert to what I said, viz., that Victoria
needs a large restaurant where Conventions and visiting organizations
can be suitably entertained.
If there had been even a light
breeze the fire in the Pemberton
Block would have wiped out the whole
of the block bounded by Government,
Fort, Broad and Broughton Streets,
that it did not do so is entirely due
to conditions beyond the control of
man; conditions which are purely accidental, and cannot be counted on in
any event. Whether the fire could
havc been subdued at any stage only
an expert is competent to decide, but
two facts stand out: first, that the
water supply which was available was
totally inadequate, and that it finally
gave out altogether. Second, that the
much vaunted salt water high pressure
system was not available. I forebear
making any comment on these facts
because the subject has been discussed
"ad nauseam," but it may be permissible to ask when the new system will
be available, and also if the City
Council can kindly give us the date
of the next big fire.
As a looker-on I am pleased to notice the public spirit of the property
owners and residents on Linden
Avenue. Their application to the city
for the construction of an asphalt or
bithulitic road is highly commendable,
and if acceded to will make Linden
Avenue the most picturesque and attractive residential street in the city.
It will do more, it will set the standard for other sections and no doubt
inaugurate healthy competition which
cannot but result in beautifying the
city.
A word of praise for Mr. George
Phillips, the indefatigable director of
the Victoria Musical Society, and the
active members of the Committee who
helped to make such a success of the
final concert of the season. Miss
Marie Hall is a universal favorite, and
probably never has a violinist been
more highly appreciated in Victoria
than she was on Tuesday evening last.
It was a fitting wind-up to a splendid
musical season; by far the best, from
an artistic standpoint, which thc Musical Society have had.
When one reads of the drastic Bill
which is now before the Legislature
of Ontnario to regulate the speed and
operation of motor cars, one can be
thankful that this knotty problem has
been so satisfactorily solved in Victoria. Thanks to the firmness of the
police, and the reasonableness of thc
owners of motors there is no ground
for complaint, nor has there been
since the first active campaign more
than a year ago. Public opinion
voiced through the press is powerful
enough to put down any nuisance.

It Is a Burning Shame
To waste good money in large coal or wood fires when not required for heating purposes.    It is folly to cook the cook on a hot summer's day.    That is the
beauty of a gas range,—a turn of the tap and the heat is on or off at will.    A hundred other splendid points, too.    Come in and we will explain the many
merits of gas for cooking and heating purposes.
YOU SHOULD COOK WITH GAS.
Then you would be spared all the worry, dirt
and inconvenience attendant on a coal or wood
stove and avoid the awful danger of alcohol or
oil. Gas for cooking is positively unsurpassed.
AVe have some very fine values just now in our
showroom, Gas Eanges and Gas Stoves that well
illustrate the comfort and economy of gas for
cooking purposes.
YOU SHOULD USE GAS HEAT.
Almost every B. C. home needs a little heat in
the spring, summer and fall, but why suffer work
and worry of lighting fires when a Gas Eadiator
—just a turn of the tap and a match-scratch—
will give all the warmth you need. Fuel economy
lessened, as well as wear on carpets and draperies
.lessened and freedom from work soon pay small
expense of gas heating outfit.

Victoria West Soccer Football Team.
The above is a photograph of the
Victoria West Athletic Association's
Football team, champions of Britisli
Columbia in the second division for
the last two years, and senior champions of thc Victoria and District
League for thc present season.
The personnel of thc team, reading
from left to right is: Top row—Prevost, Whyte, Kinlock, Covvper, Bca-
ney, Pcttigrevv, Bailey. Bottom row
—Tait, Okell (capt.), Ledger, Thomas,
Buxton.
The team was organized in September, 1906, since which time it has had
a most enviable career.
In the season of 1906-7 it entered
the Intermediate Grade of the City
League, in which were competing thc
Y.M.C.A. and Centrals, and although
beaten at first it came out victorious.
Thus it will be seen that from the
very first it was a winning organization. After being successful in thc
City League it entered the Intermediate Island League, in which wcre
teams from the local Y.M.C A., Ladysmith and Nanaimo, when it was
again victorious, thus being entitled
as the winner of the Island to play
off with the best of the Mainland,
which happened to be the Columbian
College, New Westminster, for Provincial honors.    It easily disposed of
this team, thus becoming the intermediate champions of B. C.
The following season, 1907-8, it exactly duplicated the performance of
the previous year as outlined above,
the only difference being that it
earned the title of the second division
champions of B. C. by defeating thc
Mainland champions of that grade.
At the beginning of the present season the management decided that the
team as fit for senior company, hence
it was entered in the City Senior
League, ancl as all are well aware it is
now the proud holder of the silver
cup emblametic of the senior championship of thc Victoria District Football League for the season of 1908-9.
In the process of this league it defeated such notable teams as the J.
B. A. A., Esquimalt, Fifth Regiment,
Garrison and Cedar Hill.
The team is now engaged in the
second division Island League against
Ladysmith and Nanaimo, and has a
splendid chance of again winning that
League. Certainly it will have the
good wishes of all Victorians in its
enterprise.
Since the team's inception in 1906
it has played in all thirty-nine games
in which it has won thirty-one, drawn
five and lost only 3. This is certainly
a splendid record.

PREFERRED STOCK

In offering the remaining portion of the first issue of
300,000 Preference Shares of this corporation to the public,
we do so with a feeling that it is the best industrial stock
ever offered for subscription in Western Canada. This
stock is entitled to a fixed cumulative preferential dividend
of 7 per cent, per annum on the capital for the time being
paid up on the shares. Said dividend is due and payable
before any dividend is paid on the Ordinary Shares. After
7 per cent, lias been paid on the Preference and Ordinary,
both shares thereafter participate equally. In addition to
the preferential dividend of 7 per cent., the Preference
Shares are likewise entitled, in the event of the winding
up of the Company, to priority as to return of capital and
payment of arrears of dividends, whether declared or not,
over the Ordinary Shares. We are confident that the
Preference Stock will eventually pay from 20 to 40 per
cent, annual dividends, and that within 90 days from the
opening of the plant the stock will be selling at a big
premium. Upon the incorporation of the Company the
gentlemen responsible for its organisation wcre very conservative and cautious regarding the amount of "capitalisation," which, after thoughtful consideration, was placed
at $1,500,000, which in itself is a most conservative amount
and thoroughly consistent with the object and purposes
of the Company. As a matter of fact, the "capitalisation"
is much lower than that usually adopted by concerns of
like magnitude. For instance, the Laurentide Pulp &
Paper Co., of Grande Merc, Quebec, has $1,600,000 Ordinary Stock, $1,200,000 Preference Shares, and $1,000,000
Debentures; the Willamette Pulp & Paper Co. has $1,-
500,000 Outstanding Stocks and Bonds; the International
Paper Co., operating 38 mills, has Bonds and Stock to the
amount of $65,000,000—an average of over $1,500,000 per
mill, and thc remainder of the large operating paper
mills accordingly. Thc plan of the Board of Directors is
to place the first 300,000 shares of Preference Stock at
par $1.00 per share, which amount will be ample to complete thc lirst division of the plant now under course of
erectioiT,"_and then offer a second issue of 200,000 ordinary
shares, either at $1.15 or $1.20 per share. The first unit
conservatively will pay from 15 per cent, to 25 per cent,
on the money invested, so that the subscribers of the first
300,000 not only will enjoy a preference over subsequent
stockholders in regard to capital and dividends, but likewise the advantage of big dividends on the first unit of
the plant. Everything considered we regard this as an
exceptional opportunity to secure a high class dividend
paying stock.
A few years ago the stock of the Canadian Pacific Railway could have been purchased at 90, today it is up to 179.
Northern Pacific was likewise quoted a few years ago at
S8, today it is 143. The Bank of British North America
is now quoted at 145; Dominion Bank, 234; Imperial
Bank, 215; Bank of Montreal, 242; Molsons, 200; and
others accordingly. The Allis Chalmers stock has jumped
from $10.00 to $15.00 in one year. Alaska Packers was
quoted in 1907 at $50.00; today it is $58.00. American
Cement, eight years ago went begging at $9.00 per share;
it is now $43.00. Canada Permanent Mortgage Corporation in 1904 sold at $1.25, today it is a good buy at. $1.50.
Pacific Mail S.S. Co. once sold as low as 27; in 1900 Wells,
Fargo & Co. Express Co. was quoted at 140; today it is
up to 325. At the same time the American Radiator stock-
was peddled around at 50; today it is a good buy at 209.
In 1907 Bethlehem Steel was offered at 20; it is now ruling
at 27. American Refining Co. went from 56 in 1900 to
' 107 in 1908. in 1902 Hudson Bay stock was quoted at 37;
today it is 118. American Cotton Oil Co. jumped from 36
in 1907 to 44 in. 1908. In 1905 Comstock Tunnel Company found no buyers at 10; today it is a magnificent buy
at 50. In* 1907 Consolidated Gas ruled at 140; it is now
167. Quaker Oats, in 1902, could have been bought at 77;
it is now quoted at 134.
Who would not be glad now to buy a few thousand
shares of stock in the Eastern Canadian Paper Mills, for
instance, at the price they were originally quoted at, such
as the Toronto Paper Co., Dominion Pulp & Paper Co.,
Lincoln Paper Co., Montreal Paper Co., Lawrentide Pulp
& Paper Co., Trent River Pulp & Paper Co., Georgetown
Paper Co., Northern Mills, St. Raymond Paper Co., Kin-
leith Paper Co., and other Eastern mills. As a matter of
fact it is impossible to secure stock in the majority of
operating pulp and paper mills. The last issue of the
British Paper Maker Journal gave the following quotations: Darwen Paper Co., £5 shares are now at £9*54;
East Lancashire Paper Co., £10 shares are now at £1554
and £i6J4; the £5 shares of the Guardbridge Paper Co.
are now at £.y_\; Ramsbottom Paper Co., £5 shares with
only £3 paid, are now at £6)41 Roach Bridge, £5 shares
with only £4^ paid, are now at £6. The £5 share of the
Star Paper Co., with only £3 paid, are now worth £5^2.
In offering the Preferred Stock of the Western Canada
Wood Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd., for subscription there is
no question but that it is the best industrial stock ever
offered in Western Canada. The Company havc acquired
55,669 acres of magnificent Pulp Limits at Quatsino Sound,
Vancouver Island, large water power on Marble Creek,
Quatsino Sound, and are proceeding with the erection of
the Pulp and Paper plant, which when fully complete will
have a capacity of 600 tons of news and wrapping paper
per week. The erection of the plant is under the supervision of Mr. Chas. B. Pride, of Appleton, Wis., one of
the most distinguished authorities in the United States
or Canada on the erection of Pulp and Paper Mills, having
built more than fifty of the leading mills of the country
during the past twenty years. We are rushing the work
along and are confident that we will have the pulp division,
with a capacity of 100 tons of pulp, in operation by Dec.
1, this year. The Preferred Stock which we are now
offering is entitled to a cumulative preferential dividend
of 7 per cent., payable before any dividend is paid on the
Ordinary Stock. After 7 per cent, ahs been paid upon the
Ordinary and Preferred Stock both stocks thereafter participate equally in all surplus profits which the Company
may determine to distribute for that year. Remember,
"the time to buy the stock of any corporation is in the
embryo stage before a wheel has been turned."
WE NOW OFFER FOR SUBSCRIPTION THE REMAINDER OF THE FIRST ISSUE OF
30,000 PREFERENeE SHARES
In Blocks of 100 Shares at $1 per share.

Institute Hall.
Institute Hall was crowded to the
doors on the evening of Wednesday,
the i/th, the occasion being thc Irish
concert given by thc ladies .of St.
Andrew's Cathedral in honor of St.
Patrick's Day.
Though the principal feature of the
programme was the splendid lecture
which was delivered by the Rev,
Father Caine, and which was fully reported in Thursday morning's issue
of the Colonist, the musical portion
was mine the less enjoyed, having
been in the hands of several of Victoria's most talented artists.
The opening number, "Believe me
if all those endearing young Charms,"
a trio, by Mrs. Mhas. E. Wilson, Miss
Sehl and Mr. Frank J. Sehl, was rendered in an excellent manner and was
greeted with great applause, ft was
followed by the old and popular song,
"Rory Darlin'," sung by Mrs. D. E.
Campbell, in her usual finished and
artistic style, and proved so enjoyable
that Mrs. Campbell was compelled to
sing an encore, before which she was
presented with a magnificent basket
of carnations.
Mrs. Herman Robertson's pianoforte solo, Chaminade Valse, in A
Flat, was a most popular one with
her audience. Mrs. Robertson's reputation as a solo pianist is too well
known to Victorians to require comment.    Her rendition was perfect and
in response to a hearty encore she
selected a lighter composition in ono
of Brahm's valses, which was also
exceptionally well received.
One of the most enjoyable feature*
of the programme was Mrs. Harry
Pooley's solo, "The Harp that Once
Through Tara's Halls." This beautiful old composition was sung in a
particularly pleasing and sympathetic
manner, Mrs. Pooley being in excellent voice, and the applause with
which she was greeted marked only
too well thc popularity which she has
attained in Victoria musical circles.
As an encore Mrs. Pooley sang a
sweetly pretty little solo, "Since Wc
Parted," by Francis Allotscn, and was
recalled twice before thc enthusiastic
audience would subside.
Mr. Clement Goss' solos, "The Auld
Plaid Shawl," and "Father O'Flynn"
were sung in Mr. Goss' usual excellent manner and won him rounds of
applause.
Mr. Jephson's well selected humorous songs kept the audience in continual laughter during the entire time
lie was on thc stage, and hc was
forced to respond to encores after
each of his programme numbers.
Miss Blackwood and Mr. Benedict
Bantly acted as accompanists in a
most satisfactory manner, and, taken
altogether, the concert was one of
the most enjoyable ever listened to
by a Victoria audience and reflects
great credit on the ladies lot the
Cathedral for the able manner in
which it was conducted.
MO MUS.
The Girl Question.
Harry   Hamlin,   the   famous   stage
director, has directed the rehearsals
of "The Girl Question," the musical
comedy by Frank R. Adams and Will
M. Hough, with music by Joseph E.
Howard, which will be seen at Victoria Theatre on March 31st, under
the direction of the Askin-Singer
Company. There is a distinction, a
class and an atmosphere of elegance
about Mr. H anion's work which
stamps it indelibly as that of a master,
and any theatregoer who has once
witnessed a production of his is always on the lookout for an opportunity to see another.
Florence    Gear's    New    Songs    in
'Marrying  Mary."
Florence Gear, who plays the stellar role in Edwin Milton Roylc's
musical play, "Marrying Mary," and
has a singing voice of such rare compass—between three and a half and
four octaves—has had two new songs
written expressly for her to be sung
by her in thc course of the play. For
both of them George Totten Smith
has written the words and Silvio Heiu
the music. "Starland," the first of
the two, is a ballad with coloratura
passages that rival those introduced
by Tetrazzini in "La Traviata" at thc
Manhattan Opera House in New
York last winter. For this song the
stage is darkened, the only light being centered on a huge star which
sheds its beams down upon the singer.
The trend of the song is that when
tired of earth the only peace and
happiness will be found up in Star-
land. "Come up," says the star, "from
the hurry and worry of Old Earth.
Let me beguile you to come up to
rest ancl comfort in Starland."
The   music   is  said   to   be  in   Mr.
Hein's most florid vein and gives
Miss Gear every opportunity to soar
up on the leger lines above the staff.
. "I'm So Lonely," Miss Gear's other
new song, is sung witli a mirror accompaniment. Thc singer deplores
the fact that she is unable to find the
man she likes. She has been told that
love travels fast on moonbeams.
Catching a moonbeam in her mirror,
sue Hashes it out over the audience
in her endeavor to find the man of
• her choice*—and usually finds him.
