UNIT ON THE PACIFIC COAST."
a fight its California against the intrusion of the Oriental. At the
same time it must not be forgotten that the gravest issues arc involved. There is first of all the question of commercial treaties which
mean a great deal to tho prosperity of the United States and Canada.
The American residents in Tokio have protested against the Californian attitude, no doubt purely for commercial reasons. Their protest
has fallen on deaf ears. The Government of Japan has tiled a protest
with the Government at Washington; n protest couched in moderate
ancl dignified terms, and there thc matter rests. Unless Japan feels
called upon to emphasize the protest, the matter will for the moment
end there, but it would be living in a fool's paradise to imagine that
the subject will not be revived. California is but blazing the trail
for British Columbia in the matter of Asiatic exclusion, and there is
no single consideration of half as much weight affecting the naval
policy of Canada as that of the possible attitude of Japan in face of
continued hostility on the part at any rate of the Western section of
the United States and Canada. It is a matter in which we have a
common cause and on which we are likely to form a permanent solidarity.

Ito the twentieth century as the proudest title ever borne by the men

Itmoved, and which the co-operation of the Motherland and the
lolonies in new spheres of activity demands should bo removed as
lon as possible.    It has already been discussed, and tho incident re-
Irretl to is certain to give point to the arguments that have been
led, and may not improbably operate to a speedier settlement of an
liportnnt question.
California Land Legislation
HE action of the State Legislature of California in legislating
against the Japanese land holding is a matter of the utmost
significance, and raises a concrete question in a very vital
Im.    Brushing aside all sophistry, it means that the State Legis-
jure of California is determined to exercise its State prerogative
lthe utmost extent in order to bar out the Japanese.    It is not ger-
ltne lo the point at, issue to discuss the relation of the Stall! Legis-
luro to tho Federal Legislature.    That is a matter settled by the I'.
IConstitution, and it is only of interest to note this in passing, be-
|ise in Cannda none of the Provinces have similar powers, and the
body whicii can deal with the subject of immigration is the
Iminion Parliament.   The stand taken by California is consistent
lh the attitude of organized labour, but it would be a mistake in
lposo that the danger which was first scented by the labour leaders
lot now recognized generally throughout the State.   Two condi-
ls have recently developed whicii have accentuated the hostility of
lifornians to Japanese immigration.   The first is the acquisition
lonsiderable sea frontage by representatives of the Japanese Gov-
Inent, and the second is the very large increase in agricultural land
lings purchased by Japanese.   Probably California furnishes the
; conspicuous illustration of the aggressiveness aud restless anibi-
I of the Jap.     There he manifests his true character; ho shows
if you admit him he will not be kept down, but will share in all
advantages which the country affords until he runs up against
Lone wall of a legislative barrier.  The action of the Legislature
lis the whole question of the relation of the two nationalities and
friendly relations of the two Governments. Tt is a far cnll to sng-
lthat the U. S. Government might have to consider the possible
Jidmcnt, of the Constitution; but such a course would not be as
leal as that a single State should over-rule national senlimenl,
Tby so doing plunge the whole nation into difficulties. Those who
Ion the Pacific Coast are more keenly alive to thc dangers of
ufal immigration than those who live further East.  They regnrd
j>ttv much in the same light as does Australia, and they are deter-
Id to resist it.     This is true of all Pacific Coast States and Pro-
Is, and it, is certain that British Columbia would make as strong

The Privy Council
THE bill introduced into the House of Commons by lhe Lord
Chancellor affecting the constitution of the Judicial Committee of lhe Privy Council is (he culmination of o discussion which bus been carried on for some lime as in tlie desirability nl'
altering its personnel sn ihat when highly technical cases from the
Colonies were being considered by the Court il shnuld havo llic advantage of lhe presence of colonial representatives. The demand
sprung from two reasons; first the growing tendency of the Colonies
nud llic Mother Country In draw closer together nud lhe desire nl' ihe
former to have a voice in matters directly and peculiarly affecting
their interests. The second is ihal in different purls of ihe Empire
lliero are local laws to bc interpreted with which tho Law Lords nl
home cannot possibly be familiar, and iu fhe exposition of which a
representative of the country affected would certainly lend invaluable
aid. These considerations have carried weight, and the Government
has wisely yielded, not so much lo a request as In the impression that
lhe ends of justice would be better served and public confidence in
the Committee maintained by moulding it ngnin in meet the requirements of the limes. Thus does nne of the finest and mnsi dignified
of British institutions conform to tho underlying sentiment of the
British Constitution whicli ever makes "the bounds of freedom wider
still"—uot ahvays going on "from precedent to precedent," but al
limes establishing precedents of ils own, as in the present case, thereby strengthening its hold mi tho affections of thc Empire, and increasing ils efficiency, nnl only as nn impartial, bul as nearly as u human
tribunal enn be, an infallible Court nf Justice.
Christian Science
OX the Iiith uli. The Week published an exhaustive article on
Christian Science from the pen of .Mr. J. Arthur Hill, of
Bradford, Vnrks. Mr. Hill is au eminent literatour, a member of tho English Society of Authors, an experl in psychical science,
and n collaborateur with Sir Oliver Lodge.   It would bo difficult, if
not impossible, to find a writer better equipped to deal with the subject from the standpoint of an honest, philosophical, scientific criticism.    The Week did not ask for the article; it was tendered by Mr.
Hill, who is a regular contributor, in consequence of articles whieh
had appeared in The Week supporting Christian Science. The article
referred to was exhaustive and detailed; carefully edited, and with all
references indicated.    The AVeek made no comment on it; a fair
comment would be that it was highly favourable to Christian Science,
but critical of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, its founder.     The Week is
not competent to deal with this subject either for or against,  It is a
highly technical subject, one whieh has provoked wide controversy,
and one on which great differences of opinion exist.  But The Week
did try to be fair, and recounted instances in which from the personal
knowledge of the editor, great benefits had been derived by sufferers
who had placed themselves in the hands of Christian Science healers.
It also emphasized the moral and spiritual influence of the Church
and its members. Mr. Hill summed up the case concisely, and, as
The Week believes, fairly.  He said that "the good and true part of
Christian Science is its demonstration of the influence of mind on
body, and of the usefulness of inducing mental states of an optimistic
character.   .    .   The tree is known by its fruits, and the fruits of
Christian Science are undoubtedly often good.    ...   I am not at,
all prepared to deny the Christian Seienco claims, even with regard
to organic disease.     I have seen enough of Christian Science results
among my friends to prevent me denying anything; I merely suspend
judgment.     But I do believe that the power of the mind over the
body is so great that almost anything is possible; and I think that
the medical advance of the next half century will be chiefly in this
hitherto neglected direction."   This cannot be regarded as unfriendly
to Christian Science, but surely the honest, sincere expression of a
true scientist.   In the current issue of The Week will be found a
reply to Mr. Hill which emanates from tho Christian Science Committee, and it, may therefore be regarded as an official reply.   That
reply is confined entirely to a defence of Mrs. Alary Baker Eddy
against Mr. Hill's somewhat unfavourable criticism of her methods;
il therefore possesses far less interest to the general public than would
a dissertation on the principle of Christian Science.   Tliere is. however, ono point of considerable importance referred to in the letter,
and that is where the writer takes exception to Mr. Hill's description
of healing in attributing it solely to the influence of mind over matter,
whereas the Christian Science teaching is that "a demonstrable divine
principle is involved."  However, it would be very wide of the mark
for The Week to attempt to canvass the reply of the committee; possibly Mr. Hill may see fit to do so; all The Week does is to throw
open its columns freely to both sides with the desire to give some
publicity to a subject which it believes to be of great importance and
of growing interest, and one which it has before said is slowly but
surely gaining ascendancy in the human mind.
Discreditable
IN the current issue of The Week will be found the detailed protest of the passengers of thc "R.M.S. .Monteagle" against the unsatisfactory conditions prevailing al the William Heud Quarantine Station, where they wero detained from the 31st nit. for sixteen days. The statement is a lengthy one and goes into the minutest details. It is one which must and will receive attention at the
bands bf the authorities. Indeed, a copy was mailed to the .Minister
of Agriculture, who has to ileal with all matters affecting the public
health, and he is expected lo lake action. The only action which
could produce satisfactory results would be a prompt and searching
investigation In be held before the passengers became seal te red. A
number of those who voiced lhe complaint, and some of those who
signed, aro still within reach, and in so serious a mailer their evidence should be taken on oath, ll is not necessary to commenl upon
ihe details of the protest. They arc discreditable to the Department;
lhey arc nauseating und disgust ing. Thnl such conditions shuiild
have been permitted is almosl incredible, ll is ull very well in say
thai llic station, like everything else, bus become obsolete by reason
nf the rapid development nf Victoria, und ihnl. ibis is a sufficient
explanation of the inadequacy of tin* accommodation. Bin such an
excuse would not impose upon a ten year old boy. The simple truth
of the nialler is thai lhe station bus been neglected, and thai tho Department bus simply ignored not merely the growing needs, bul even
the elementary requirements of the Quarantine Station.   It would be
easy in point out the utter lack of intelligence In ghl to bear upon
the equipment; as for instance only one isolation building capable of
accommodating a single case. If more cases than nne bud occurred
mi the voyage, or if the disease bad spread and the number of cases
bud increased after the passengers went into quarantine, there is no
plaee where the additional cases could have been accommodated. II
another vessel had arrived wilh u ense of infectious disease nn board,
while the "Monteagle" wns in quarantine, it wnuld have been impossible even lo land the passengers, nnd tho only course would have
been to coup them up on the ship. However, thc besl impression of
ilu* condition of affairs enn be gathered from a careful reading of tlie
protest of the passengers, who may be considered lucky to have
escaped n general epidemic.
Cricket
Till, crickol season is with us again, and Viotoria, the Western
headquarters of the glorious game, is arousing herself. The
first in llie field is the Albion Cricket Club, which, although
nnl tho pioneer, can yet claim a history stretching over nearly a
quarter of a century. Nol many people know that Ibis club has played
nn the same ground on the nnrth-cnsl comer of Beacon Hill Pnrk Page Two

■ during the whole of that period. Iu its earlier ilnys it counted in its
ranks men who huve since become famous in athletic circles, not forgetting our tennis champion, B. E. Schwengers. If there were
"giants in those days," there ure ulso giants in these days, who well
maintain the prestige of thc Albion Club, including the redoubtable
veteran who can still howl three wides and then take a wicket. Tlie
Albion will have n stronger team this seuson than last, nnd intends to
make a bold bid for premier honours. Under the genial presidency nf
Col. Cunliffe, the annual banquet was held at the Balmoral Hntcl
on Saturday night last, and was largely attended not only by members of the Albion Club bill by representatives of other clubs. The
arrangements for the evening were excellent, nnd a most enjoyable
lime was spent. Incidentally, Ibe subject of the impending; visil of
ihe Australians was discussed and Secretary Beeves, of the P.C.C.A.,
announced thai be hoped to conclude satisfactory arrangements for n
three days match. It was true liml Ihe management of the Australian
tenm had demanded a giiariiiiee of $1,000, but he hoped Ihnl il
would sec that such it guarantee was out of the question, nnd would
accept the very fair offer of the Association to turn over the gross gale
receipts. Manager Levy, when here with the last Australian team, expressed his desire to help Ihe game of cricket in Canada, and it would
hardly be consistent with his professions to refuse to play unless he
could get a large guarantee. The Victoria team is also getting busy,
and present arrangements are that lhe opening mutch of thc sensnn
will take place on the Jubilee grounds next Saturday, the 2(itb inst..
when the Victoria and thc Albion will once more measure swords.
H Weekly Halt=Holiday
T'HE WEEK is in favour of a weekly half-holiday for simp
assistants.    It is a concession ivhich is in accord with the
spirit of the times and which has been granted in most other
departments of labour.    It has not hitherto been universally conceded to shop assistants because the question of public convenience is
involved.   For this reason The Week is not in favour of a Saturday
half-holiday, but believes that the middle of the week is tho better
time to take it.  This has been tried in other cities with success.  Tho
objections to the Saturday half-holiday are in the opinion of' The
Week unanswerable,  lt is the only time on which every working num
finds himself in possession of his week's wages, and can go shopping
with his wife and children.    Tbe custom is an old and honourable
one, possessing mnny advantages.  It infuses a spice of color into lifo
as well as being a mutter of practical domestic convenience.   With
Sunday following, when all stores ure closed, the inconvenience would
be greatly increased, if the period during which they are now open on
Saturday were curtailed by nine hours, during which at present shopping can lie done, from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., and that, is the proposition
of those who would take the half-holiday on Saturday.   There is the
further objection that this can hardly bo called a half-holiday, for it
represents nine full hours' work.     Tho shopkeepers are surely entitled to some consideration, and such a long break would doubtless
affect their business unfavourably, especially in the matter of perishable goods.   This would seem to Thc Week lo exhaust the objections
to having the half-holiday on Saturday; there could be no objection
lo having it on Wednesday, if it is desired as a period for rest, and
coming in the middle of the week it would be more effective from
that standpoint. Moreover, it would be a renl half-holiday, extending
from one o'clock o six.    The. Week is entirely in favour of the move- ■
ment, and believes it to bo reasonable, humane, and in accordance
with the trend of the times, but it would strongly urge those who are
behind it not to be arbitrary in their demands, and to remember that
since it is the public they servo, it is the public convenience which
should be considered in any movement of such a drastic character
affecting at least 80 per cent of the population, for those to whom the
question of the time at which they shall do their shopping is a matter
of no importance certainly do not constitute more than 20 per cent
of the whole.
test of the trend of events than any local issue. Viewed in this light
and with sonic justification for believing Ihal the Alberta elections
were a "try-out" for the Liberal policy in ihe House, the Conservatives have every right to felicitate themselves nn the result. If the
naval issue had nnythiug to do with llic increase nf lhe Conservative
majority from six to eighteen, then the Liberal Opposition is entitled
to all the comfort it can derive from its preliminary cantor in the
country. The local issue which was undoubtedly a factor was Ihnl of
lhe Great West waterways case, in respect nf which lhe Administration of Premier Sifton has been so severely impeached, The defeat
of Attorney-General Cross in Edmonton, tho nearest point of importance to the great disl rid affected by tliis transaction, cannot bin bo
regarded as a condemnation of the Government policy, and when one
remembers thc extreme bitterness whieh was engendered throiighoul
ihe Province by ihis "fiasco," there can be no surprise ul the defeat of
Mr. Cross lu Edmonton. Altogether tlie resull of lho elections, looked
at from whatever standpoint one chooses, nre full of hope for the
Conservative parly, nnd effectually dispose nf fho contention that the
prairies are solid for Liberalism.
fl Valiant Journalist
THE passing of Mr. E. J. Deane leaves a gap in the journalism
of the Kootenays which will not easily be tilled, lie was
without doubt one of the keenest, most intellectual und aggressive newspaper men in B.C., nnd hud been identified with ils interests for nearly twenty years. To him will always belong the distinction of having established and successfully conducted the best
newspaper in lhe interior of British Columbia, the Kelson Daily
News. In conducting this paper Mr. Dcmie followed his own ideas,
and although he was nt times hampered by his associates, ho never
snerilied bis independence, or allowed himself to bo diverted frnm
his policy. lie was at all times a consistent and aggressive Liberal:
he never sat on lhe fence, but was u newspaperman, who believed thnt
llie public wanted lho news. He got il for them nt whatever cost,
wilh the resull thnl his paper wns known fur nml wide und had almosl
as large a circulation outside as within its home constituency. Mr.
I leane's health hnd nol been good for years, and of late his friends had
noticed thai he was failing fast. His death removes a inan who was
universally respected, and one of lhe few strong political partisans
who made no enemies among his opponents. His editorials wen*
brief, concise, lucid antl pungent, characteristics in which be resembled one who was for many years his fellow townsman and rival,
lhe late John Houston. Mr. Deane will be greatly missed by Ibe
parly tn Avhich be rendered conspicuous service, and none the less by
Ihnse who recognized that in him they had a foemiin worthy of their
steel.
Alberta Elections
Til K resell of lhe Alberto Provincial elections must be a mill ter
of surprise to the local Government, which went out of office
with nn Opposition of six nnd returns with an Opposition
nf at least eighteen. This is a remarkable gain and only a campaigner who has been in close touch with all developments could lay
his finger on the causes which have brought about such a change.
The one subject which was expeeted to affect tbe issue materially,
und which thc Liberal press confidently predicted would be the determining factor, was that of trade relations with the United Sliiles.
As a mutter of foot, this subject has not been an issue. Alberta exchanges all show that while it was discussed, principally by the Liberal speakers, it, aroused no enthusiasm and very little interest. The
Tariff Reform Bill, as proposed by President Wilson, so fully vindicates the prediction of thc Conservative leaders in Canada ns to hnve
rendered it impossible for Reciprocity to be revived in any form, even
fnr the purposes of academic discussion. Tt was confidently expected
thnt the Naval Bill now before the House nt Ottawa would be very
generally discussed during the campaign, and might prove a Irner
Nelson School Affairs
PUBLIC sympathy will undoubtedly be on thc side of the eight
Nelson teachers who resigned because the dale of Principal
Thompson's suspension has been set forward to August, instead of counting from the date of Commissioner Lampman's report.
The conduct nf thc principal and nf that section of llie School Board
which has encouraged him in a line of misconduct bringing discredit
upon an honourable proefssion, fully justifies the stand taken by the
teachers, who could not continue In work under such a man and re-
lain their self-respect. Moreover, public opinion cannot but be aggrieved at the apparent disregard of the Commissioner's recommendations. But all this is only on the surface. Indeed, the case is essentially one of those in which "things arc not what they seem." lias it
occurred to tbe teaching shift that the course adopted by the Department may bc much more effective than the one whicii they desired,
immediate suspension? Six months from the beginning of April
would lift the ban of suspension iu September, quite early in the fall
term, and with more than six months of schooling In follow, The
decision of the Department carries the term of suspension over to
February. Moreover, thc teachers have probably not considered thai
as the majority of the School Board favours Principal Thompson, he
would undoubtedly have been reinstated in September if his suspension had come into operation at once, whereas by the end of February many things may happen, and time and title are always in favour
of the man wdio can wait.
The Manchester Guardian
Readers of the Victoria Times will have observed the frequency
with which the Liberal Journal quotes from "The Manchester Guardian." It invariably speaks of it us a great English journal and an influential organ voicing national opinion. This
is not correct. The .Manchester Guardian is the recognized exponent
of extreme Radical principles; an out and out advocate of most of lhe
advanced proposals of its party, and for some yenrs past under its
present editorial control decidedly anti-Imperial in its tendencies.
During tlie Boer war it sided with the Little Englanders, and has
never recovered in public estimation from the set-back which il received on thnt account. It is only natural that such a paper should
attack the Borden naval policy, and should furnish much reading
matter of the kind which readers of the Victoria Times arc expected
to revel in. When such a paper says that "there is a strong feeling
in England that it would ho unwise to accept a contribution which
involves in the Canadian Parliament the application of the gag and
,i studied insult to a great Imperial statesman," it misrepresents English public opinion us grossly us it; mis-states the incident which it professes to traverse. The public can have but little confidence in the
opinions of u paper whieli tloes not correctly state the fads on which
it bases its arguments. Even intelligent Liberals must laugh in
Iheir sleeve at the picturesque phrase which describes the "gagging''
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Tho incident has been fully explained on
the floor of the House at Ottawa, antl the Victoria Times knew this
when it quoted witb approval the misrepresentations of lhe Manchester Guardian.
The Dry-Dock
CAPT. LOGAN and Mr. II. B. Thomson have been successful
in their mission to Ottawa. With the assistance of Mr. (!.
IIII .arnard, M.P., they have been able lo secure the definite
promise of a dry docks for Esquimalt, uud such addition lo the breakwater nl Victoria as will give n pier nnd two wharves in lhe near
future. The fad speaks fur itself, and may be taken as an evidence
of the practical interest of the Dominion Government in the port of
Victoria, and as an earuesl of its intention to subsidize works iu the
harbour to whatever extent may be necessary to enable il lo accommodate llie enormous increase of shipping which is now assured, li
is nnl likely thill the churlish attitude of Vancouver will hnve any
i ITci'i mi the intentions of the Government witb respect to Victoria.
Snme people want "the earth," and most people who live outside
Vancouver think that it bus been very well treated by Governments;
il will hardly advance ils own interests by antagonizing those of
Victoria.
Another Bubble Pricked
IT is hardly permissible to anticipate the verdict of the Committee
which has been conducting the Dowler investigation. Possibly
before these lines are published that verdict may be known, but
it certainly is permissible to comment on tho farcical nature of the
whole proceedings and the ridiculous collapse of the Mayor's case.
By common consent he has utterly failed to substantiate two of the
three trumpery charges whicii he preferred. The only one remaining affects the late arrival of the City Clerk at bis office ou numerous
occasions. In his manly defense Mr. Dowler pointed out that his
duties required him to work many hours at night, and night after
night. Indeed, anyone familiar with the sittings of the Council and
Committees must wonder how the City Clerk finds time to sleep,
while social functions must be entirely beyond his compass. This
night work is done without extra remuneration, and Mr. Dowler
stated that during twenty-four years of service he has not received a
dollar ou this account. That a gentleman occupying lhe important
posit inn of Cily Clerk and who has to work at night to this extent
should be scored when he is half an hour or even an hour late in the
morning is as unfair as it is ridiculous. Indeed, it would be hard lo
liml language iu which to characterize the Mayor's conduct in this
matter. There is only too much reason to conclude even from his
own admissions, that consideration for thc public service bud fur less
to do with it than personal spleen.

WHAT a thousand pities it is that
in this age of advanced education it should so often bc necessary
lo write on the subject of manners.
One would have thought that by this
lime thc elements of good manners
would be born into a child and that
by tbe time he arrived at man's estate it would have been instinctive for
him to net in accordance with them,
for the class of offender whom I have
in my mind's eye is not drawn from
the slums; hc belongs to what is generally known as the great middle
class. Thc middle class, as 1 am
aware, has in the Old Country an
upper and a lower stratum. Outside
o; Great Britain, however, 1 believe
that the distinction docs not exist, so
far as Anglo-Saxons arc concerned. I
take it for granted that nny man who
is the oh tier of an automobile in Canada may safely bc styled "middle
class," and as my remarks are connected with automobiles and funerals,
1 take it that they will be directed
against middle class owners. Once
upon a time it was thc custom for
passers-by to uncover iheir heads
u hen a funeral passed. Whether this
was an act of respect to thc majesty
of death or merely a tribute of sympathy I" the mourners, I am not in
a position to say. Once upon a time
il was as heinous an offence to cut
through a funeral procession ns it is
now to attempt lo break lhe ranks of
a regiment on the march. There is
still, I believe, a law on lhe statute
hook whicii makes it an offence to interfere wilh a religious procession,
hul that law, in Victoria al least, has
fallen into abeyance.
It is a sad commentary on the manners of Ihe times when a column
which is usually devoted lo street
nuisances of a totally different kind,
has lo afford space to give vent lo
complaints about the unniannerlincss
of automobilists who will persist in
defying thc laws of God and man by
impudently cutting through funeral
processions. But the complaints have
been so frequent and they are substantiated by such irrefutable evidence
that it is necessary to give publicity lo
a form of bad manners whicii reflects
ill on the early training of the drivers.
I am told that seldom if ever, do those
in charge of funerals have any complaints to make of hackmen or expressmen, lt is thc automobilist and
he alone who wantonly disregards the
decencies of life in this respect, and of
the automobilists it is thc private drivers and not the licensed chauffeurs
who arc the most frequent offenders.
'I'he former think nothing of cutting
in between tiie hearse and the mourners, or between thc minister and the
hearse. I have heard of instances
where a collision has been but narrowly averted owing to this reckless
disregard of what is right and seemly.
1 wish that one such a driver could
have seen what occurred the other
day afier hc had passed. A funeral
wns passing up one of our principal
streets and had been subjected lo thc
usual indignity hy a "gentleman"
owner. Just after hc bad gone out of
sight the procession passed four little
boys standing on the sidewalk. Thc
eldest could not have been more than
ten. Ench one of the little fellow.*,
gravely removed his cap and stood
uncovered till the last carriage had
passed. Verily, out of the mouth of
babes and sucklings-
It is time that some action was taken in this respect by thc authorities,
If there is no present means of bringing offenders lo book under existing
regulations, it is not asking too much
to demand the passing of a by-law
which would make it possible to
summons drivers who cut through
funeral processions. It is conceivable
that circumstances might arise, such
: a hurry call for a doctor or an
nbulnncc, where the dead would
have to give place to the living, but
such instances are very rare, and by
no means excuse tiie present state of
affairs. 1 am not basing an argument
on tbe grounds of religion, or of expediency or of logic; I merely contend that it is execrable "form" to
show no respect to thc dead, and that
no one with the slightest pretensions
to bc considered a gentleman would
bc guilty of such conduct, if hc lived
hd to those pretensions.

I am sadly ignorant of the topoi

little time to keep pace with its ever-

of Fernwood Road and Bay Street,
there is, it appears, a pathway across
a number of vacant lots, leading in a
north-easterly direction. This path
crosses several ditches which obtrude
themselves on the nostrils in a manner wdiich there is no avoiding. After
the second ditch has heen passed the
adventurous traveller reaches what is
presumably a surface drain, which
emits its contents on to thc surface
and runs southerly. From tllis also
there is an odour, offensive at all
times, hut paralyzing in the warm

Now, though tliis is all very unpleasant and should never have been allowed, I confess that the first thing
thai strikes me is thc apathy which
the people who live in this area have
displayed, My correspondent tells
me that "ihis has been going on for

drives li ni to the newspapers. His

REAL ESTATE & FINANCE
IN REVIEWING world conditions during the past, yenr, for the
benefit of his stockholders, the chairman of one of the great
London banks mentioned that in Cannda there bad been great
prosperity, and the liabilities of the banking institutions showed important increases, but tho additions to the stock of gold were comparatively unimportant. Taking our position at the cud of the
year 1912, the visible amount of gold in the country was $137,850,-
879—the Dominion Treasury holding $104,070,51*6 and the chartered hanks $33,780,333. At the end of 1911 the banks held
$37,404,220 and the Treasury had $100,630,792—the total being
$138,095,018. So during the year there was a slight decrease, about
$240,000, in the visible stock of gold in the country; and during the
first two months of 11)13 a further diminution in the stock of metal
held in the Dominion occurred. At the end of February, 1913, tbo
banks held $37,592,441 and the Treasury held $98,782,004—the
total being $134,374,445, which is about $3,500,000 less tlnii the
holding of December 31st, 1911.
Now, this gold constitutes the better part of the base or foundation of tlie mass of credits by whicli the business of the country is
carried on. However, the gold held at home does not represent thc
whole of the metallic foundation ou whicii Canada's credit .structure
rests. The banks have a certain command over the cash resources
of New York and London. Ly exercising this command they hnve
it in their power to bring in some gold from abroad for the purpose
of strengthening the credit structure at its base if that becomes necessary. Thus at the end of 1911 they had in net bnnk balances in
New York, and call loans elsewhere than Canada, about $134,000,-
000. The February bank statement showed a satisfactory increase
over January in these loans and balances; but even after tbat addition the total amounted to but $126,000,000, or $8,000,000 less than
the total shown fourteen months earlier.
While this outside fund constitutes a most important part of tbe
reserve against liabilities, it cannot be ranked as equal to the specie
held at home, for the simple reason that it could not be converted suddenly into an equal amount of specie for transmission to Canada.
Theoretically, the banks can call in tlieir loans abroad, engage gold
at the New York sub-treasury, nnd express it to Canada. In actual
practice that process would work all right, up to a certain amount;
but the New York market would offer resistance when the loss of gold
reached certain proportions. In case of a sudden outgo that point
would he reached probably long before $50,000,000 gold had been lost.
After thnt, onr banks would have to take payment in other ways.
So we see that the basis of the credit structure in Canada consists of $134,000,000 gold plus an indeterminate amount of gold
realizable from the outside reserve of $126,000,000. It has also been
shown that the basis of the structure underwent a slight shrinkage
during the past fourteen months. Now, how abuut the superstructure? There is no difficulty in discovering thnt the credit structure
above ground was considerably enlarged in tbis period. Bank liabilities increased from $1,174,:!2.'!,431 tn $1,252,269,981—8 matter of
$78.0(111,000. It is certain that liabilities of railway companies,
industrial companies, mercantile companies, loan and mortgage companies, iriisl companies, realty companies, and private individuals,
noi reflected in the bank figures just given, must have also increased
largely during tlle period. Tbat is indicated by the increased footings of balance sheets issued by lhe public and semi-public companies.
Hence we have to consider un important growth in the size of the
superstructure coincident with n shrinkage of the foundation. We
also know that the superstructure has been growing with abnormal
rapidity for three or four yenrs. while the foundation was being extended relatively more slowly. Now a yenr is experienced in which
the foundation actually decreased in size and strength.
ft is quite clear ihal if the bunks had not taken up an attitude
discouraging credit extension in the past six or eight months, we
should have seen n superstructure bulging over farther than nt present.    The pr. ss of coiitiiiiiiilly lidding In the upper storeys while
taking away the foundation obviously cannot bc curried ou indefinitely. Soon the top begins lo swny whenever there is u strong wind,
and ultimately the whole building comes down with a crash. Thnt
is what usually happens in the United Stntes, because the bankers
tliere who enn see the danger hnve no power to effect, u timely con traction of credit. Fortunately, tbe Canadian bankers are in belter
position to see the danger, nnd they have tbe requisite power to effect
reductions. This power tbey have been using freely. Thai is one
reason why they have been sn bitterly attacked. Their efforts have
been bent towards preventing a too rapid enlargement of the credit
structure and towards maintaining the strength of Ihe foundation
works; nnd, notwithstanding the predictions of a Canadian disaster,
confidently made by foreign prophets, there is no reason to suppose
that the bankers will fail to maintain financial stability, as they have
in the past. Those business men who have the best interests of the
country at heart can help in the work of keeping the credit structure
strong through keeping their own liabilities within reasonable compass until the ratio of reserve to liabilities rises to a more comfortable
fis'iire.—Monetary Times.
IK the expectations ni: Mr. J. Bruce
Walker, Dominion immigrant commissioner, ure realized, nearly 200,-
000 I'nitcd Slates people will make
their homes in Western Canada this
yenr.
Mr. Walker, as is his annual custom abuut this time, has given out his
anticipation of the prospects for immigration from the south. He thinks
the increase will be 20 oi* 25 per cent
over that of 1912. Last year there
were practically 150,000 American immigrants.
With regard to immigration work
from the United States I du not know,
remarked Mr. Walker, tbat it differs
very much from previous yenrs, excepting thnt probably those who nre
going now take with them more
money. They are more inclined to
go into the districts where land can
he purchased than lo go back the distance that is now necessary in order
lu secure homesteads.
Western business conditions arc
generally improving. Spring weather
has come and there is great activity
on the part of those implement houses
and others engaged iu supplying th?
needs of the farmers.
Tight money is slill in evidence and
is curtailing expansions in some lines
nl: business.
Building in the west will nut equal
last year's returns as loans are not
easily available.
Optimistic business men state that
this tight money situation will have
disappeared in u mouth or two, they
say this without considering conditions. It will be some time before
the money market will be very greatly
improved. Collections are undoubtedly
pour and the loaning business is quiet.
There is a good demand fnr loans
.... farm ns well as city property, but
the local companies admit that they
have nut the necessary supply of money
—wheu the European situation elenrs
up more will be available fur investment purposes. The opening uf nnvi-
gtition and the resumption of industrial activity will also help matters.
There is it satisfactory wholesale
movement uf general merchandise.
Drygoods and millinery houses especially nre busy. Much hardware is
being shipped to country points, although builders' supplies are nut as
active as was anticipated.
ACCORDING to the report just
issued by the Department of
Labor, wholesale prices went up nver

immense stack is the biggest burner
in the world. It is one hundred nnd
sixty-one feet ill height, fifty feet in
diameter and one hundred and fifty
tons of tlie best boiler steel was used
in its construction.
The burner is completely encased
in a water jacket through which cold
wuter is constantly circulating thus
cooling the burner nnd rendering it
practically intlislructable.
This sawmill has cut, dried, dressed
aud manufactured over five hundred
million feet nf lumber since Hie plnnt
began operating four and one-half
yenrs ago, thus holding tlie world's
record for continuous cut nnd run.
For fourteen months thc plnnt has run
night and day without a shut-down.
The work of the increasing market
facilities in New Westminster for
local grown produce is shaping into
definite action and a general meeting
has been called by the Secretary of
the New Westminster Board of Trade
for Friday, May 1st, for the purpose
of getting the producers and dealers
together to discuss details.
This will complete a long step in
the movement which has been under
wny for some time to enable the farming community in tlie Frnser Vnlley
to secure a better representation in
their home markets and will result in
solving to some extent the question of
lhe cost of living in the larger coast
cities.

Of Ihe chorus the men were far superior to the girls. This is so frequently the case with musical comedy

it is hardly worth mentioning. One

Girl plays a game of cards with the
Sheriff, the stakes her lover's life,
is of dramatic intensity with a climax
entirely unexpected, one which affords many thrills to the most jaded
theatre patron.
TUK greatest violinist of today is
Eugene Ysnye, who possesses
that magnetism which charms nlike
the musician and the amateur, because of his perfect musical expression. He possesses the inexplicable
and irresistible something which takes
cold judgment off its feet and leads
criticism captive. He will be heard
at the Victoria Theatre on Monday,
April 2Sth.
Ysaye's eminence as a violinist lias
been gained by hard work. He did not
burst meteor-like upon the world, but
he earned his position in the violin
firmament by len years uf concert louring, during which time he passed successively through the stages of extreme sentimentality until he reached
the "sea" of real sentiment. It was
in 1.875 that Ysaye, after preparation
given chiefly by his father, made his
way to Brussels and sought out Wien-
iawski, then professor at the Conservatoire. Wieniawski was leaching
when a note was brought to him marked "private and important." The
servant was told tn show the bearer
in, and Ysaye then about fifteen yenrs
of age, timidly entered the room
carrying his violin. After a little
preliminary conversation which nllowed the youth to tell his story,
Wieniawski asked him what he could
play, and in reply he placed on the
desk a concerto of Vieuxtemps. He
at once became it pupil of Wieniawski
with whom lie remained some three
years.
When Ysaye llrsl appeared in
America he was a mature artist, the
first professor of the violin nl the
Brussels Conservatoire, and Ihe possessor of many decorations nnd honors
bestowed upon hiin by various roynl-
lies. Before lie hnd been in America
a month, lie was acknowledged lo be
Hie greatest violinist who hnd visited
the country for ninny years.

reference to Quimbyism could only be
made with the hope of misleading the
public. We fail to find uny excuse
for tlie attempt to give an erroneous
description of the early life of Mrs.
Eddy as a full aud authenticated
account is given in the book ' Life of
Mary Baker Eddy," by Sybil Wilbur, whicii may he found (by anyone
interested in the perusal) in most public libraries throughout the world.
He niukes disparaging comments on
the Massachusetts Metaphysical College and the charges made by its
founder for instruction which she
alone wns qualified to give at that
time. The fact that 4,000 students
were taught in seven years and the
results of such teaching in healing
the sick nnd sinful would indicate
Unit the price for lessons was not exorbitant. The writer knows of no
school whore pupils qualified to practice can be turned out for such a
small expenditure of time and money.
Mrs. Eddy explaining the work of
the Massachusetts Metaphysical College writes as follows; "The students
of the Massachusetts Metaphysical
College were generally the average
man and woman. But after graduation the best students in the clnss
averred that they were stronger and
better than they were before it. Willi
twelve lessons or less the present and
future of those students had wonderfully brightened before them, thus
proving the utility of what they hud
been taught. Christian Science heals
functional, organic, chronic and acute
diseases that the M.D. 's have failed to
heal; and, better still, they reformed
desperate cases of intemperance, tobacco using and immorality which we
regret to sny other religions teachers
are unable to effect. All Ihis is accomplished by the grace of God—the
effect of God understood." (Christian
Science vs. Pantheism, p. 10.)
A great pnrt of his article is made
up of quotations from Mrs. Eddy's
various writings which the critic in
many cases has separated from their
context in such a manner ns to entirely obscure the author's meaning.
His description of healing in Chris-
tion Science is amusing to those who
understand that a demonstrable divine
principle is involved. He uses many
arguments to try to prove that Christian Science heals by some subtle
power or suggestion of the human
mind and would deny that God or
lhe Infinite bus anything to do with
the "signs following." This contention is without foundation but seems
consistent to the carnal mind which
cannot receive the things of God. The
same argument was used nineteen
hundred years ago by the "wise
men" of Jesus' time when it was
claimed that the Master east out
devils by Beelzebub the prince of
devils.
Mrs. Eddy had many ideas as is
shown by her resourceful und forceful arguments in reasoning out and
proving her points by demonstration.
If our critic menus that Mrs. Eddy adhered to but one Mind, God, wc
acquiesce with him, for herein lies her
wonderful success thnt she clung
steadfastly lo the first and grent commandment of Jesus "Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart
and with all thy soul and with all thy
mind" and the second which is like unto it "Love thy neighbor as thyself."
She also taught her students and followers that tbey only gain power over
sickness and sin in so far as they are
obedient to this command. Yours truly,

Fair Fyllis (fond no more) if needs must he
That after all these years wherein my joy
Was but to watch the many visaged He
Thou fledst from—gaffer, goodman, stripling, boy.
To watch them as they first the glitter caught
Of thy glad garmonts flaunted, passing by,
Then the trim ankle, where discretion fought
With conscious pride of merit—then thine eye!
Soft blue, as melting morn in April's Heaven,
Dark blue, or black, or brown, green, hazel, gray,
Or something reminiscent of all seven
And yet evasive, who am I to say.
Who never summoned courage yet to dare
The frontal battery of thy chalant head
But watched afar, and saw thee slay or spare
As scorn enwrath'd thee, or as pity pled.

Thou would'st be pole to man's magnetic heart,
Oh, learn from me some celibatic lore
Which practised-soon will bid thy swains depart!
Thou shalt not, Fyllis, walk in soothing silk
That seems to sigh and whisper as you move—
Nor damask pied—nor muslin white as milk,
Nor sonsy tweed that tailor'd patterns prove.
Use not the skilful scissors to adorn
Thy perfect imperfections—nor to veil
(As hazy dawn enveils the bursting morn)
Thy happy, hidden torments of the male.
Nor trust at all to sweet simplicity
That often draweth man in swift pursuit
As clover blossom calls the honey bee
From garden plots away, and cloying fruit.
Be mindful, Fyllis, not to coif thy rare
And treasured tresses with such careless art
As would Saint Anthony himself ensnare
And weave sad webs about his monkish heart.
Nor try in stricter style of Grecian mode
To hide thy glorious locks—nor emulate
The balanced brows of Oleo de Merode—
That would be fatal—then—why hesitate?
The newly freed Chinee, to show the world
His scape from thraldom to the bad Manchu
Chopped off the pigtail once so fondly curled
About his voteless pate—and why not you?
The Bird of Freedom is an eagle bald
Whose rancouB throat made hoarse by much franchise
Gives nature warning gainst those weak ones, called
Fond turtle doves and birds of paradise.
So! Do you mark me, Fyllis?  Raze thy locks-
Lay bare thy dauntless cranium to the sun-
Wear sullen garb—and to the Ballot Box
Unchecked of chivalry thy way is won. —M. Victoria, B.C., April 19, 1918.

la very hearty vote of thanks to Mr.
iTodd for his splendid work in thc po-
Isition of president of the club for the
[present year.
Mr. Fred Turgoose having called
lthe attention of the meeting to the
Ifroquent infringement of the rules and
■courtesies of the road by motor cyclists, it was unanimously agreed to
Iforward a letter to the Motor Cyclists Union calling their attention to
lthe matter and asking them to use
Itheir influence among their own mem-
|bers for the prevention of accident.
The meeting then adjourned.
ONE of the problems closely associated with good roads, but
Iwhicli is discussed rather seldom, is
Ithat nf curvature. Much of the safety
of the driver depends on whether he
can see far enough abend to allow
time for a change of course. This
subject Robert A. Meeker, Supervisor of Roads for New Jersey, discusses in his annual report. He tells
how the problem has heen met on the
other side of the Hudson as follows:
"The constantly increasing use of
our roads calls forth the efforts of
our people to meet the increasing demands of travel, hills must be cut,
hollows must be filled and sharp
turns and crooked lines eased and
straightened. When we stop to consider that a motor running at the
legal rate of twenty-five miles per
hour travels 110 feet in three seconds
and should another travelling at the
same rate be approaching from the
opposite direction, the drivers would
have one and one-half seconds to
avoid a collision, if the line of vision
were limited to 110 feet, it becomes
apparent that the subject of road
curve is extremely important.
"As the statute provides that the
highways shall be not only convenient
hut safe for travel the question of
alignment must be met and solved.
No joking or sarcasm will relieve
road builders from this responsibility. The department has devoted
much time and thought to this problem, the result of which is that no
curve of less than 955 feet radius is
recommended nor approved unless
local conditions render it practically
impossible. The reason for this is
that on a 0 degree curve the clear
line of vision on a roadway thirty
feet wide is only 350 feet, hence the
drivers of the approaching machines
would have four and three-quarters
seconds in which to avoid one another. Surely no one would say that
is more than is necessary. We have
lixed this as the maximum degree of
curvature.''
Of the proper crowning of roads
Mr. Meeker savs:
"The stnndnrd cross section is the
arc of a circle drawn through three
points, namely, the centre and the
two gutters; the latter nre located at
the intersection of the side lines, with
a line descending from th'e centre at
the rate of one-half inch per foot.
The ure thus obtained gives us a full
of one-fourth inch per foot from the
centre of the edge of a sixteen-foot
pavement, of five-eights inch from
this edge to the centre of the seven-
foot shoulder nnd of nine-tenths of
nn inch from this point to the gutter,
thus increasing the grade in such manner that the water will be most
readily caried off with the least damage to the shoulders of the road, also
giving a setcion upon which the
greatest portion is convenient for
travel.
"Every one who has driven over a
highly crowned road has experienced
the unpleasant sensation of tipping or
sliding when compelled to turn off to
ono side. Hence the travel is naturally
concentrated on the centre of the
road. Jf thc crown is lowered until
it will just give sufficient slope to
carry off the water the traffic is distributed more uniformly over the
entire width of the road, and as the
wear is upon the entire road and not
merely upon the centre, two results
follow. First, there are few or no
ruts; second, the cross section of the
rond is maintained, and consequently
the drainage is properly taken
care of.
"Our force having been augmented
by one more engineer and ten inspectors we have been able to secure
n more thorough and exact compliance with the engineer requirements of our plans. The results of
this are seen in a better finished clnss
of work, which is not only pleasing
to the eye, but adds greatly to the
lifo of the road, inasmuch as it insures thorough consolidation nnd
perfect drainage of the road. During
the last year we have devoted more
attention to the correction of alignment than ever before. This is due
to the increasing demands of traffic
which have compelled a closer adherence to the rules that were laid
down by the deportment some time
ago."
The report also tells of (he great
increase of motor traffic and its results:
"The increasing weight and volume of traffic demand wider and
stronger structures, the burden of
whose cost should in part be borne
by the Stnte, because the change in
traffic conditions has been so great
that a county cannot be asked to
spend large sums for bridges that are
used fully as much hy residents of
other counties. It is not so many
years ago that it was unusual for a
heavy van to make a trip of over
thirty miles; now 100-mile hauls are
so common that they are looked upon
as a matter of course. In fact, since
the advent of the railroad our highways have never been so generally
and continually used as they are today. One of the most notable evidences of this is that the old inns and
taverns that had fallen into disuse
nre being remodelled and onee more
arc centres of activity."
CV. CLARK, who has been associated with the Western Mortor &
Supply Co. since the founding of the
company, has severed his connection
with the firm, which is now under the
management of Wr. William Oliphant,
Jr. The business offices and repair
shops having been entirely reorganized, the Western Motor & Supply
Company is in a better position to
fulfil orders promptly nnd to take
core of the rapidly increasing business. So rapid, in point of fact has
Ihis increase been, that the sale of
the well-known McLaughlin automobiles is double that of this time last
yenr.
The new management extends to
its customers thanks for past patronage ond gives on assurance thnt
future orders will receive the most
careful attention.
PAULINE THERE'S BIDE
LISTEN, my children, and you shall
hear
OC the midnight ride ot Paulino
Veere.
The  ear was numbered eight,  nineteen,
flvo,
And the riders are lucky to he alive
After the ride tllat cost so dear.
She snld to hor chauffeur friend, "Tonight,
If the folks are gone, get the big car
out;
And me and Mln and her friend Joe
White,
Win moet you at half-past nine about;
And Just them two ana you and ine
Will go for a joy ride far and free,
Apast each village and house and farm;
And the country folks we will sure
alarm;
And no one the wiser, so what's the
harm'.'"
A swirl of dust, then a vanishing speck;
A blur in   the moonlight,  a streak in
tho dark;
And tho farmer wakened, and said: "By
Hock,
It's  some of  them  city  folks  out  fer
a lark."
Thot was all. And so, through the gloom
and the light,
Pauline and her friends hit It up that
night
To prove again In their headlong flight,
'I'liat  the path of the joy-rider ends In
wreck.
It was two by the village clock
When they turned around for the homo-
ward run,
And all of a sudden there came a shock:
And the auto vaulted the waysldo wall
And lit In a Held; and the folks who rode
Wero scattered  around  liko  the  leaves
In fall;
And   tho  car  burned   up  near  Its  orst-
whlle load;
And so came the end of all their fun.
Vou know the rest—In    accounts    you
have read,
How tlio farmers picked them all up for
dead
Near lho wreck of the car all bent and
charred,
And  bow the chauffeur got six  months
hard.
When tlie boss  ls gone and the const
is clear,
Remember the fate of Paulino Veere.

Of Interest to   \Vonien
DURING* the autumn a little
Parisienne was staying with me,
nnd I wns much amused by her comments on my countrywomen and their
mode of dress. "You English," she
exclaimed again und again, "you buy
clothes*—ah 1 yes, but you know not
how to put them on.   It is so."
I was forced to agree with her after
n comparison of her own trim figure
and the hundreds of badly, even
carelessly, dressed women we met. It
wns on ii dull, rainy afternoon. I
mil iced she wore boots well buttoned
up llic leg, her navy blue costume titled her without a wrinkle, her gloves
were faultless, and her hat was fixed
in such a way that it looked part of
its owner. There were no untidy
wisps of hnir. But I remembered
Hint she hnd spent quite ten minutes
lixing this, although she had two pins
only, nnd I begged her to tell me a
ew of her secrets.
She laughed, saying there wcre no
secrets, but when we reached homo,
nnd I followed hor to her room, she
told me many things which showed
me that French women pny infinite
attention lo all the little details of
Iheir toilettes, antl I understood bet-
ter thnn I hnd ever done before how
the small things of dress count. In
the first plnce, the average French
womnn pays far more attention to her
hands nnd feet Ihan does her English
sister. She buys better boots and
shoes, lakes great care of these, nud
in no account will she go out of
doors with a button olf or an untidy
shoe-string. Directly a shoe shows
signs of wenr it is attended to, nnd
n French woman considers it a grave
disgrace to be down at heel. She
removes her shoes directly she comes
ill from tt walk, and as trees are not
lonsidcred luxuries, but necessities,
ench pair of boots and shoes keeps
ii perfect shape. Her gloves are
Irented in the same way. To my
astonishment, I learned that glove-
trees are quite general in France,
aud the French girl has a pair of
these on which to keep her best gloves.
The others are carefully smoothed
out and lnid in a glove sachet, in
which rests a tiny scent sachet.
Nevei* does she carelessly roll them
up, as we so often do, and if a button conies olf, it. is ut once replaced.
Soiled gloves are cleaned with regu-
lurity in France, and one never sees
French-woman go out of doors putting on her gloves. She would ns
soon go out without her hat as her
jloves, nnd regards "les gauts" ns
an essential part of her toilette.
Again, too, the French woman
studies which style of coiffure suits
her best, and she then keeps to this
mode, irrespective of fashion, unless,
of course, the new mode proves more
becoming. She never wears many
hatpins; two, as a rule, are sufficient,
though she will occasionally use a
couple more very short ones at the
side. She takes care, however, always to thrust these pins in the same
lole, putting them in before the hat
s plnced on the head, nnd in thnt
vay she keeps the hat from being
lisfigitred by huge pin-pricks. Veils
ire nhvnys kept folded up, with n
icent sachet between, and a French
volutin will never content herself
villi chenp veiling. Good veils, as
veil as high-class shoes nnd gloves,
ire by her looked upon ns uecessi-
ies.
When going on a journey she does
io! don her oldest clothes. She makes
poinl of wearing clothes that givt
ier a neat und nutty appearance, and
it the same time do not show too
ilninly llie evidences of the journey.
'he French girl carries a fresh jabot
r collar in her hand-bag, a clenn pair
f gloves, nnd u fresh veil, nnd gen-
rally when nearing her journey's
nd she will retire nnd change those
orl ions of her apparel, so that at her
niriiey's end she is ns fresh-look-
ns though she had travelled iu
ie proverbial hand-box.        11. K,
lOlIH of the masculine touches in-
) traduced in the latest Spring eos-
mies nre particularly becoming,
here arc, first of all, the school-
iy's shiny turned-down linen collar
id pleated shirt (white, of course),
om with n loosely-fitting bolero of
irk-blne cloth. This bolero partly
■neenls    a   high blnck silk corselet
nbove ti skirt in plaid taffetas. Then
comes the swallow-tailed dress-coat,
in a fancy cheviot, fastioned at the
waist with a couple of buttons in
horn. The coat has long sleeves, revers and collar, as in the similar garment worn by men. A more defined
indentation at the waist, ns well as
the arrangement of the white collar
and pleated linen shirt, with its
small black tie, gives n touch of
feminine charm to this curious creation. Parisiennes choose this model
in bluck, violet, or a shade termed
lete-dc-negre. The rather narrow
skirt to match, has a stitched seam
down the front, and a couple of pockets, some distance below the waist,
with narrow stitched flaps. A sensation ut the races in the Hois de
Boulogne was undoubtedly caused by
the military tailor costumes that a
leading dressmaker recently launched.
Some of thc most picturesque uniforms of the time of Louis XVI and
Napoleon I have been copied in a
certain measure, as in this instance,
where woollen and silk materials,
cretonne, fancy buttons and braidings, appear cleverly amalgamated.
The success of these models is chiefly due to their simplicity. They must
be seen to be admired. A written
description cannot possibly do them
justice. With a few of these latter
creations, waistbands play an important role; rarely are two cut on
the same pattern, or placed at thc
same angle. Tn the days of the Mare-
cltul de Suxe, General Dumonriez,
und, later on, under Marechal Ney,
the uniforms were tight-fitting; but
in the up-to-date versions of these
military coats and jackets, the silhouette is less outlined, and every
fancy is permitted, as long as the
result is becoming.
SOME of Hie .new cotton crepes,
voiles nud dimities look this yenr
as if they were specially made for
the elderly woman. There are dimities, soft und very attractive, with
gray stripes, and other dimities which
show the smart black and white combination. There are crepes whioh
drape so well, having a gray design
and also gray stripes in varying
widths. And then there are voiles
with odd-shaped light and dark violet
designs ns well as others showing
violet stripes. Surely, the elderly
woman must huve one or two of her
ufteruoou summer dresses mnde from
these materials.
If she needs a new best dress, it
is not at all necessary that she must,
select a blnck one. The deep shades
of violet are quite appropriate, as
well as taupe, seal brown, granite
gray and any black and white combination. Crepe de chine, to my
mind, is one of the best fabrics for
a dress of this sort, nnd if one does
not have to get new silk for a foundation, silk voile and eolienne are
very lovely. A black and white fonl-
nrd trimmed with little frills of blnck
lace, having a white lace or not yoke,
would also be extremely smart.
An attractive wrap to wear with
the best dress is one mnde three-
quarter length, with large comfortable
sleeves. Blnck bengaline is it good
material to select for such a garment,
or black satin, taffeta, or ratine. A
flat, heavy, white or craem lnce collar
will dress up this type of coat in »
most effective wny.
II1' there is one direction in which
we enn nnd shall let ourselves go
this sensnn, it is in evening dress.
Each model seems not merely more
attractive thnn the lnst. but more replete with novelty. I find especially
adorable the quaint little jackets of
hire or chiffon Hint are worn. Sonic-
times these are quite pronounced in
outline, while nt others lhey nre just
vague draperies, The effect in mnny
instnnces is to completely cover the
buck, but the high-low dress is represented in various guises, nnd is going to make modistic history once
ngnin, chiefly, however, in transparencies, This will not, however, be
recognized ns quiet en grande teniie,
but will serve for certain dinners,
the opera, restaurant wear, and the
like. And it is characteristic of the
spirit of the age that a clenr jump
is made from this vogue to the very
mosf decollete type of evening cor
sage. The pose of the moment also
is to keep these last as simple and
fragile as possible. The most distinctive are of mousseline de soie,
■absolutely guiltless of extraneous
decoration. Sometimes the transparency will be folded under, and so used
double, the apology of a sleeve emerging out of an intricacy of falling
draperies. A wonderful toilette arranged after this manner was of almond gree soft satin embroidered in
gold, the corsage of tulle in tone, with
a ceinture of black tulle, the ends of
which were spread out in a sort of
drapery down the left side of the
skirl. Again, in the case of it citron
satin the skirt was caught up in front
just u handful of folds a few inches
below the wnist, and tliere captured
by great tassels of silk and beads.
Willi this tliere went a round decol-
lelnge of lnce, continued below the
wnist, nnd cut sharply away like a
swallow-tail coat, the lace strained
perfectly flat over the satin. But the
chief feature was the sleeves, and
these were of deep emerald-green
chiffon. They were evolved out of
folds that met in narrowing points in
the centre of the waist, back nnd
front, the draperies gradally falling
nnd entirely obliterating the waist,
until they were ultimately drawn into
a rouleau to suggest a deep armhole,
such its were and are again being
used with little mantles.
FUTURIST silks are the dernier
cri. These patterns are in odd,
undecipherable effects on grounds of
rich color; nnd the design is often in
a shade that a year ago one would
have been snid to "scream" at the
ground color against whicli it is posed. It is as hard to understand some
of these silks ns it is to comprehend
the futurist efforts in art; but "what
is fashionable is beautiful," is an
axiom, the truth of whicii every woman well recognizes. If one's frock
turns out to be a little more pronounced in color scheme than one
would have selected in calmer moments, one calls it. "Balkan" or
"Bulgarian," and one's criticizers
can say nothing.
Transparent bishop sleeves of chiffon are a new note in evening gowns.
The sleeves, gathered into a low arm-
hole droop softly over the arm nnd
are confined at the wrist in a narrow
bracelet of chiffon flowers. With
these bishop sleeves of chiffon, of
course, one-button gloves nre demanded and the bare arm, gleaming
through the filmly sleeve, is really
less covered than when a long glove
is worn with a sleeveless gown.
&'
WE CANNOT possibly complain
of our milliners this month.
These artistes have really surpassed
themselves in the shape and trimming
of their new toques. The latest
style, with its upturned brim, is tilted in such a manner as to show more
of the face than usual, and n good
portion of the undulated hair. Two
curled ostrich feathers placed hack
lo back trim the side Hint is uplifted.
Thus far I have seen this model reproduced in black satin and neutral
tints. They ave meant to accompany
the bright-coloured crepe de chine
dreses that promise to become so general when the sunny spring weather
has set in. At the Opera aigrettes
arc more voluminous than ever. They
assume nil kinds of shapes, some recalling the tail of a fox, others a
Renaissance fan.
WE HEAR a great deal in praise
nnd dispraise of current fashions, and some of the artists of the
hour who hnve expressed their disapproval of hnrem skirts nnd the like,
and some who have tnken up the subject as portrait painters, are turning
themselves into it society for raising
the tone of current Instc, and undertake lo provide sketches of good suggestions, which will be exhibited.
Tlio standard is to be of pure beauty
alone, nnd so bring bnck sonic of the
glorious traditions of old days. It
is hoped the artistic associations will
have an admirable influence nn the
art of dress, especially ns it is finding favour among the lending dress
houses.

IT IS quite possible Hint there mny
be a fow among Mr. Locke's admirers who will be disappointed in
his new novel; that is, if they nre of
the order of reader who always expects one certain thing from a writer,
and demands it over nnd over again
according to Ihe label, ns if nn author
were a purveyor of canned foods.
Those, however, who prefer their
rending to provide them with surprises, and who like to adventure, ns
it were, in pleasant compnny over a
new rond, will And an added, ralher
than a diminished plensure in the
different side nf his art that Mr.
Locke shows in "Stella Maris."
The keynote of the book is the impossibility of reconciling, or perhaps
one should say of combining, n purely ctherenl nud ignorant view of thc
world, however beautiful and spiritual, with the conflicts and realities
of life. Stella Maris, the sheltered
invalid, so long as she remains a sort
of personified dream, living in a
cloud kingdom of her own into which
no unlovely thing* may penetrate, is
happy aud in her own way fulfils her
being. But when circumstances
bring her into contact with things of
which the very name was hidden
from her before, with sin, and crime,
nnd agony, of whicii she had never
dreamed, she is called upon both to
feel and to live more nctively. The
negative position which has been hers
is gone for ever; and Hie process of
the re-ndjustml nt of her standard is
the main motif of the book.
Mr. Locke tells his story with the
lightness of touch and grace of style
especially his own. The almost fantastical humour which characterizes
so much of his work is little in evidence here, although in the person of
Miss Lindon he has added n memorable portrait, to the gallery of Maiden
Aunts of Action.
Quite the best thing in the book,
however, is the character of Unity,
the orphan, a study which in many
hands would hnve become either morbid or melodramatic, but whose poignant inarticulate pathos Mr. Locke
has depicted with true sympathy and
restraint.

A W eekly Review of the Most Important Happenings in the Mining World, With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M. I. M. E. Greenwell Medallist.
AVERY mistaken idea prevails as to the commercial result;
of mining coal. We hear so much about coal barons, and in
this respect British Columbia has beard as much as, or
more than, any other province, because of the phenomenal success
made by the Duiisniuirs, that one is apt to conclude that eoal mining everywhere is capable of yielding a fabulous fortune, and yet
this conclusion is diametrically opposite to the actual facts. Pro-
bobly the delusion is fostered by the consideration that coal is a
necessity, and may almost be classed with the public utilities, and
the idea is common that anything wdiich is essential to the million,
sueh as matches, pins, buttons and coal, must necessarily be a profitable industry in whieh to invest.
Yet in the main coal mining all the world over yields but a
modest average profit. Ten years ago, speaking before the Mining
Association of Great Britain, Earl Fitzwilliain stated that tbe
accounts of all the associated coal mining companies did not show
an average profit exceeding sixpence a ton, spread over a term of
twenty years; and on Ibis page will be found a very incisive article
contributed to "Mining Science," in which one of the highest authorities in the States declares that coal operators would be very glad if
they could see a clear margin of 15 cents a ton.
These facts are capable of an easy interpretation. Coal, being a
common necessity, is eagerly sought for. Whenever discovered of
good quality and in commercial quantity, it is rapidly developed.
There is bound to be a demand, but equally, tliere is bound to be
keen competition, and it is this competition wbicb keeps tbe price
down. Where the price of coal is high, it is due to one of two
causes; either lack of competition or a combine.
Tn spite of the scientific methods developed in the States by
combines, they have not been able to make much inroad in the direction of forcing coal to a high price and maintaining it there. There
have been spurts of trade, where a phenomenal demand, accentuated
by a temporarily disorganized supply, has enabled fancy prices to be
realized, but in the main, coal mining has settled down to a steady,
moderate priced, fairly profitable industry, nnd tbat it is likely to
remain so is evidenced by the fact that any attempt to maintain artificial conditions for a length of time inevitably leads to public
clamour for Government operation of the mine.
All this is not in any sense to deprecate the value of investments
in coal mining, which, intelligently and scientifically directed, should
always bo one of the most regular nnd reliable dividend producers.
(2) That the operators shall have
a fair prolit.
ti!) That the public shall have its
coul nt the lowest price consistent
with economical production expenses
and a reasonable profit.
(1) Thnt unnecessary waste of coal
resorces shall be prevented.
To secure these conditions will require the active co-operation of all
t hose who are interested in the industry.

SIR WILLIAM RAMSAY AND THE
ELEMENTS
SOLEMN regard is daily given to
the transmutation experiments of
Sir William Bamsay, the English
physicist. Suggestions concerning
the possibly unstable character of the
elements, and particularly concerning
the possible manufacture of gold, accompany newspaper reports from
abroad which refer to Sir William's
reputed release of neon and other
inert gases from an electrically charged tube of hydrogen. Credence is by
no means universal. Sir Oliver Lodge
still requires to be shown, while our
hypercritical contemporary, the Mining Magazine of London, has announced the discovery that Sir William Eamsay is the P. T. Barnum of
science. If competition after this
immeasurable honor is worthy of encouragement, the fame of Dr. _?. ¥.
Frieduinnii, with his tuberculosis
serum, should not go unmentioned.
Here is an opportunity for earnestness, however. So long as the symmetry of the periodic tabic remains
unexplained, the investigations of
Ramsay and his co-adjtitors are vastly
more than a joke. Chemistry awaits
ils Kepler and Newton. Imaginative
powers of huge energy are culled to
the attack upon the problem of the
ultimate constitution of mntter.
THE   AMERICAN COAL  TRADE
FACING A CRISIS
NOW many coal operators are
there in the United States, who
after meeting their pay roll, could
put aside a sinking fund of 15 cents
on each ton of coal produced during
the last five years 1 There may be a
few, but the number is small. The
fact is that the bituminous coal industry is facing a critical situation
and its danger is a danger to all lines
of industry in which the use of coal
is a necessary factor. The bankruptcy of the coal business, with its
investment estimated by Mr. Moors-
head at over a half billion dollars,
will create a panic, the like of which
has not been experienced since the
days of seventy-three.
This is the condition. What is the
remedy? Co-operation, a joining of
hands in a general effort to effect a
greater economy in production and
to protect against the brutality of big
buyers of coal, to Ihe end that coal
is not sold at a loss; to the end that
coal buyers will at all limes, be able
to do business with going concerns
ond not with referees in bankruptcy,
to the end that the small consumer
of coal in the future, will not be obliged to pny back the losses now being made to enable the big consumer
to scalp llic small producer.
To meet this situation, a bill has
been prepared, providing for the creation by Congress of an Interstate
Trade Cc mission, with powers similar to those exercised by lhe Interstate Commerce Commission, over
transportation companies.
By tbe provisions of this bill, the
Commission is authorized to consider
and pass upon all existing trade combinations and to issue a permit to ull
those whose purpose is fair and reasonable and whicii will not result in
monopoly.
This bill was  carefully   prepared,
has been considered and amended by
three   different  conferences of conl
operators.   It is believed to bo substantially sufficient to permit such cooperation among small operators as
will enable tbem to compete with the
large aggregations of capital, outside
ns well as within the industry,   It
creates  an  agency for  throwing a
searchlight into the twilight zone between   reasonable  and   unreasonable
combinations and enables a governmental agency to protect those combinations whicii make for safety and
efficiency in operation and in conservations   of   fuel  resources and to
quickly reach those which tend to offensive monopoly.   It makes possible
thc highest and most beneficial co-
operation for the betterment of any
industry and, nt tlie same time, provides the most wholesome check upon
monopoly. Senator Clapp, chairman
ut' the Senate eommitee on Interstate
Commerce, recently said:
"When you will show me how it is
possible to unlock the stable door and
still have it closed, or, having it closed, may nt the same time have it open,
I will understand how, what you want
can be accomplished."
The reply was this:
"Between the stable and the garden
is n plot of grass going to waste, and
needing to be cropped; in thc stable is
a horse suffering for want of this
grass. I am going to put a halter on
that horse, give you the end of the
halter strap and allow yon to supervise the grazing, and whenever the
horse attempts to go over into the garden, you can pull him back, and, if
lie persists, yon can put him bnck in
the stable."
The coal industry has been making
its best effort for safer and better conditions for its workmen. There nre
mnny, many others, The impulse for
bettering lhe conditions of labor is
very general among operators, but it
is nn expensive impulse and necessarily increases the cost of production.
Coal operators would bo glad indeed
In conserve the coal now being wasted. To make a properly produce at
a profit of fifteen million tons of coal
which, as now handled, will produce
hut ten million tons, is lo add fifty
per cent to thc value of the mine. Of
course the operator wants to conserve
lho conl, but if the mining of the
nther live million tuns can only be effected by doubling the per ton cost of
production, its saving means a loss of
five million dollars to the operator,
under present market conditions. That
is not conservation*, it is ruinous
waste to the operator.
Conservation of thoso resources is
only possible as a result of co-opera-
lion, in which the consumer and the
public take part. In other words,
the selling price of coal must be increased to meet lho average increased cost of production.
This presents n grent public question, and we believe the interest of
tlle public will bo best served by so
treating it. The public hns n right,
lo demand nnd the operators will ccr-
lainly be willing fo give them ns
much safety and as much conservation as that same public is willing to
pny for.
The American Mining Congress
stands for and demands:
(1) Thnt the lives of the mine
workers shnll bo given the best possible protect'""
HAZARDS IN METAL MINING
MANY will be surprised at the results of au inquiry just completed by Albert 11, Fay, mining engineer for the federal Bureau of
Mines, which shows that fatal accidents in melal mines of the United
States are more numerous in proportion to the number of men employed
than are the fatal accidents in coal
mines. Of the 105,979 men employed
in the metal mines in the United
States during the calendar year 1911,
(195 were killed, which represents a
rate of 4.10 per 1,000 men employed,
as compared with 3.73 per 1,000 for
lho coal mines of this country for the
same period. The total number of fatalities and serious and slight injuries
duo to accidents is as follows: Deaths,
(195, or 4.19 per 1,000 men employed;
serious injuries, 4,109, or 25.12 per
1,000; and slight injuries, 22,40S, or
135.01 por 1,000. Of the total number
of fatalities 532 occurred underground
or at lhe rate of 5.18 per 1,000, and
153 wore killed on the surface, or 2.49
per 1,000.

remarks on the pleasurable time in

its undesirable proximity to our living rtuira. The odours of cooking,
the stench of septic tanks, and the
offitvin of closely crowded humanity
in ill ventilated quarters produce an
at Unisphere that "passoth all understanding."
The stringency of the regulations
seems to be relaxed in a somewhat inexplicable manner at limes. Almost,
daily drays pass in and out laden
with heavy telephone poles—d proceeding that the Provincial Government can hardly be aware of.

Dear Editor Blakemore, beware of the

The pen and the sword and the obse-

Are shadows compared with our pepper and strike.

of the fray,
When the Militants meet it, in battle
