ACE THE MUSIC
Several months ago Mr. A. J. Brace,
ie respected Secretary of the Y.M.C.A.,
uie a very serious statement in a paper
liich Avas then being published i__ the
ty of Victoria for campaign purposes,
stated specifically that men had been
red to insult Avomen on the streets for
purpose of discrediting the action of
authorities    in    breaking    up    the
estricted" district.   The inference being
[mt the natural result of such a policy
ould be to render the streets less secure,
nd ladies generally more liable to insult,
bat  several incidents of the kind did
icur is admited, but obviously this fact
(jes not in any degree support the state-
ent of Mr. Brace as to the manner in
hich those incidents Avere brought about,
more serious charge could be made
au the one Avhich Mr. Brace has put
ward.   It is in its inherent heinousness
|id malicious depravity on a par with
e crime of procuration.   Mr. Brace is a
|an of intelligence ancl of very wide ex-
rience;  he occupies a responsible posi-
Hni as the official head of one of the most
portant social organizations in the city;
(s position demands that his public ut-
ances should at all times be made with
ue sense of responsibility.    If such a
arge had been made by "the man on
street" it would have been laughed at;
ning from Mr. Brace people have a
ht to assume that it was correct, and
it he could prove it.    It may still be
met,   but unfortunately,   so  far   Mr.
ace has not been able to see that it is
duty to prove it.    One would have
night that, if he possessed the proof (he
Bys that he lias had it for several months)
Avould have produced  it voluntarily,
ig ago, in order that the guilty parties
glit have been brought to justice.   But
t even a sub-poena to attend before thc
lice   Commission   has   impressed   him
th  a  sense of the seriousness of his
irge and his obligation to prove it.   He
av takes the very extraordinary ground
it it is the duty of the Avomen Avho
re assaulted to furnish evidence, and
it the police should go after them, but
s not the Avomen avIio were assaulted
> rushed into print and made the sen-
onal charge.   It is very significant that
er making the emphatic declaration "I
t't say a word till I am dead sure of
at  I  am  talking  about,"  Mr.  Brace
■Jutively refused to ansAver the further
stion, "Do you knoAV personally that
Hli was the fact?"    If Mr. Brace is so
iatl sure," it can only be because he
investigated the statements made to
l, and satisfied himself that they Avere
rect, in Avhich case lie Avould be able
say that he Iciicav it as a personal fact.
e attitude he assumed  is to say the
st,  extraordinary.    The man avIio is
trusted officer of a moral and reform
■Jinnization states that he is in the pos-
sion of facts which prove that clesper-
ies were hired by disreputable persons
assault   respectable   women   on  the
leets of Victoria, yet on a legal quibble
refuses the names of his informants,
in any way to assist the police authori-
_ to bring the miscreants to justice.   If
s is Mr. Brace's conception of his duty
the public nnd to the honourable insli-
ion with Avhich he is associated, it is
■J'fiiiu that the people of Victoria Avill
•e to revise their opinion of Mr. Brace,
his own interests, in the interests of the
M.C.A. anil   in   the   interests   of  the
ters' League it is to be hoped that Mr.
ace's solicitor will  advise him to tell
af heknoAvs, and then the responsibility
1  be shifted  to the shoulders of thc
ice authorities, Avho after the publicity
ich has been given to the incident can-
fail to order a full investigation and,
.Mr.  Brace's charges are found to be
■rect, to bring the guilty parties to the
of justice.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY
This paragraph is being Avritten on the
clay Avhen all good Irishmen do honour
to their patron saint. The unfortunate
Englishman must be pardoned if he is unable to share the intense enthusiasm which
the occasion evokes among those avIio are
fortunate enough to claim association
Avith the Emerald Isle. Conviviality will
abound, patriotic toasts will be drunk, ancl
memories will be recalled of the clays
Avhen the stalwarts of the Irish Nationalist
Party were leading a campaign Avhich was
hopeless from the start, but which paved
the way for the recognition of Ireland's
legitimate rights, and the final settlement
of a much vexed question. In this year
of grace, 1911, it is generally conceded
that we are Avithin measurable distance of
giving Ireland direct control of her oavii
affairs, ancl of granting one or more local
legislative bodies Avhich will deal with all
matters of purely domestic interest. If
the demands of the Nationalist party had
been confined within these limits in the
stormy clays between 1875 and 1885 there
would have been no Home Rule Bill such
as that Avhich wrecked the Liberal party,
drove the Unionists into the Conservative
fold, ancl clouded the career of Mr. Gladstone. But the Irish leaders of those days
Avere irreconcilable, ancl having aroused the
sympathies of Mr. Gladstone they forced
him into a position from Avhich his pride
Avould not alloAV him to retreat, ancl Avhich
postponed an amicable settlement, for
tAventy-five years. Today the Nationalist
party has in Mr. John Redmond a leader
of greater sagacity, if of less intellectual
force, than Mr. Parnell; he has plumbed
the possibilities of Home Rule legislation,
and has agreed to eliminate anything
Avhich would contemplate separation or the
antagonising of Imperial interests. Irish
members will continue to sit at AVestmin-
ster, and to take their full ancl proper
share in conducting the business of the
Empire. The local legislatures or councils
to bc appointed will be largely of the same
character as the English County Councils
and the full development of the idea Avill
involve the establishment of a similar system in Scotland and Wales. This happy
consummation has been rendered possible
by twenty-five years of good government
in Ireland, by the liberality of the British
Parliament and the generosity of Irish
landlords. The last difficulty to be overcome Avas the antagonism of the Ulster
Orangemen, but their attitude Avas grossly
misrepresented by the American Press,
and the suggestion that they Avould resist
such a scheme as is contemplated by recourse to arms is a gross libel on the men
of Ulster.
While a settlement has not yet been arrived at, tliere is no doubt that by a process of elimination the most objectionable
features of IIonic Rule have been removed,
and if Mr. Redmond is well advised, he
will urge his followers to accept the reasonable compromise which has been so
freely discussed within the last six
months. It represents thc maximum
Avhich thc British constituencies will concede, and probably thc minimum which
the Irish Nationalists will accept, and the
celebration of St. Patrick's Day furnishes
a fitting opportunity to comment with satisfaction upon the great advances whicli
have been made in public sentiment, and
the modifying influence of Avise and sympathetic' government.
SPEEDING AUTOMOBILES
The Colonist thinks that Mr. Bowser's
Automobile Act is all right, but that the
police authorities of Vietoria are not administering it Avisely. For once The
Week does not agree with the Colonist,
since of the fifty iiutoiuobilists who have
been summonsed, only tAvo or three have
denied the charge of excessive speeding.
The Colonist Avould do better to use its
influence in persuading chauffeurs and
others to have a little regard for the public
safety and the public convenience, rather
than in endeavoring to make martyrs of
men who by their own admission have
disregarded both. The fact of the matter
is that the fresh and invigorating air of
Victoria oxygenises the blood of our
people in spring-time to such a degree
that they temporarily lose control of
themselves, ancl Avork off the superfluous
energy engendered by trying to indulge in
aeroplaning on the streets. The disease
becomes epidemic every year, and generally lasts about a month, after Avhich, if
the police do their duty, it subsides until
next season. It is to be hoped that the ill-
judged remarks of the Colonist will not
encourage automobilists to break the laAv,
because public sentiment will not tolerate
any "let-up" in the activity of the police.
A WEIGHTY PRONOUNCEMENT
Sir Edward Grey is the man of the
moment; he has, perhaps unintentionally,
created a Avorld-wide sensation by voicing
approval of Mr. Taft's suggestion for an
Anglo-American
Agreement
to   refrain
from Avar under all circumstances and to
resort to international arbitration for the
settlement of disputed questions. The significance of the incident lies in the profound sensation Avhich it created, and the
general endorsation Avhich it has received.
It is the logical outcome of the establishment of the Hague Tribunal, and a distinct endorsation of the policy first enunciated by Mr. Roosevelt. On the broad
question tliere cannot fail to be universal
approbation. The Avorld is Aveary of war;
the nations are groaning under the financial burdens Avhich it imposes. Some of
them have for years been on the verge of
bankruptcy, arid have only been able to
stave oft' their creditors by imposing burdens almost too grievous to be borne. The
difficulty has been to induce the Great
PoAvers to act in concert, for obviously
no one of them could afford to take the
lead in a reduction of armaments, ancl so
place itself at the mercy of its rivals. The
maintenance of the TAvo-PoAver standard
has been the dominant feature of British
policy, ancl public sentiment in every part
of the Empire insists on its maintenance.
The struggle to continue this policy has
recently called forth the most remarkable
manifestations of loyalty from every section of the Empire ancl has left no doubt
as to its popularity. It is possible, Iioav-
ever, to conclude a treaty with the United
States Avithout vitiating this principle.
The only rivalry possible betAveen the tAvo
PoAvers is commercial rivalry; there is,
and can be, no question of acquisition of
territory or of national aggression and it
is altogether too late in thc
day tor
trade
differences to invoke the arbitrament of
the sAvord in disputes between peoples of
the same race. Such a treaty as is contemplated Avould consolidate British influence on the American Continent, and
would inevitably lead, sooner or later, to
an offensive and defensive alliance which
would piwe to be the most effective antidote to German and Japanese aggression.
This is the true inwardness of the movement which Sir Edward has approved, and
which is easily the most important topic
of the moment,
HENDERSON'S DIRECTORY
Numerous complaints have reached
The Week ns to the unsatisfactory character of Henderson's Directory for 1910-
11, Avhich has recently been delivered fo
subscribers. The Week has looked into it
and finds that the typographical work is
beneath contempt; indeed page after page
is so badly printed that Avhole names cannot be read. For instance, at the bottom
of page 195 the last name is indecipher
able. On the same page the Attorney-
General is set forth as "Bowser, N. J.
Hon." Then the Premier's stenographer
appears Avithout any qualifying Airs, or
Miss, ancl there are other similar errors
which indicate extreme carelessness or
ignorance. Accidentally opening at page
335 one finds the Avell-knoAvn boarding-
house so ably presided over by Mrs. Tuck
given as "Rocobella" and a series of curtailments which Avould constitute a
Chinese puzzle, such as "Bartndr." and
in another place "tndr". Then invariably
a man's name is foIloAved by "lvs" and you
take your choice as to Avhether this means
"Lives" or "Leaves." On page 211 a
Avell-knoAvn business man in the city appears as "W. L. Challmer, pres." On
page 198 the British Columbia Detective
Service figures with head office 42-43 Williams' Bldg. 413 Granville, Avithout anything to indicate that this is the Vancouver
ancl not the Victoria address, the Directory being for Victoria and Vancouver
Island. These are only a feAV of the embellishments of a book which might be useful if it Avere correct, and which at the
price is a discredit to the publishers and
an insult to the purchasers.
ISLAND DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
The annual meeting of the Vancouver
Island Development League held during
the present week tended to emphasize the
importance of the work done by one of the
most important organizations in the Province. The Week vieAvs with increasing
gratification year by year the success of
an institution which is Avell officered, well
managed ancl well advertised. The broad
basis on Avhich it rests assures widespread sympathy and support, and the expert knoAvledge of the Secretary, Mr. McGaffey, enables him to make the most of
the unique advantages of the attractions of
Vancouver Island. Mr. McGaffey came
to Victoria on the recommendation of Mr.
Chapman of Portland, one of the best
publicity agents on the Pacific Coast. He
has more than made good, and his
phenomenal success can only increase the
regret that the re-organization of the old
Tourist Association Avas not effected at an
earlier date. Mr. McGaffey courteously
ackncwledges thc assistance whieh he has.
received from the Press. This recognition
has been well earned by fhe daily press,
which have lavishly devoted tlieir space to*
the service of the League, but it is only
fair to say that their generosity has resulted largely from the courteous manner
in Avhich they have been treated by the
officers of the League.
BRITISH MANUFACTURES
The Colonist thinks that it is largely
the fault of the British manufacturer that
he does not sell more in fhe Dominion
than "he does at present." There may be
something even in this, but there is a good
deal more iu the fact ihat the Dominion
Government carefully arranges the Tariff
schedules so as to favour American in preference to British manufactures. This is
the true inwardness of the Reciprocity
Movement, and explains why the so-called
British Preference looms very much larger
floor
in the speeches of Ministers on thc
of the House at Ottawa, than iu the
Books containing the Trade Return.-

TRAITORS IN DISGUISE
In Thursday's issue the Colonist
ently and sententiously remarks
"there ha. been a mnrked tendency of
recent years among those who cnll themselves Imperialists to look upon persons
who they nre unable to agree with everything they advance ns traitors in disguise." If this menus anything, whicli is
doubtful, if would appear to mean thnt
some people, nnd even some editors, have
a very superficial knowledge of "traitors
in disguise." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAROH 18, 1911
Of all the great men whom Rome
produced few stand higher or appeal
more to thc popular imagination than
Cncius Pompeius Magnus, better
known to modern readers as Pom-
pey the Great. And yet it must be
admitted Ithat Pompey, great man
though he was, owed a large proportion of his meteoric success to the
element of "luck." He may be styled one of the leading disciples of Opportunism. For instance, he obtained much eclat by the destruction of
the pirates of the Mediterranean,
having been put in command when
thc time was just ripe for their extermination; he covered himself with
glory and filled the Roman treasury
with the riches of the East by the
overthrow of Mithridates, King of
Pontus, and his son-in-law Tigranes,
king of Armenia, after Lucullus had
done all the hard work and paved the
way for the man who gained the
"kudos," and then, on his return to
Italy, he was just in time to meet
and wipe out the fugitive bands of
the gladiators who under Spartacus
had overawed Rome until their dispersal by Crassus. Brilliant man
though he was Pompey did not despise the opportunities which the
misfortunes of his contemporaries
put in his way.
* *   *
Pompey the Great is dead, but the
race of Pompey still lives and will
live throughout the ages. There will
always be found people to claim and
obtain the credit for what is in fact
the result of labours of others. Even
in Victoria this trait may be seen.
Not long ago I fulminated in these
columns against the prevailing practice of making a grand entrance to
the theatre after the rising of the curtain. My colleague "Momus" also
had something to say on the subject,
and the following week even "Bohemian" left his pastures to join in
the cry. And what is the result. The
Colonist editorial came into line,
followed it up by patting itself on
the back in the next issue and is obviously inclined to take all the glory
for Mr. Denman's action when Mr.
Terry played here in refusing to admit late-comers. Now this isn't fair.
A good deal of the credit is due to
the Colonist, because the first mention within the past few weeks of this
nuisance was made by the Dramatic
Critic of that estimable paper, by column not appearing till the following
Saturday, but surely I am entitled to
just a little crumb of acknowledgment. I'm not greedy, but I do love
justice.
* *   *
But what's the use of "kicking."
Virtue is its own reward, and I see
every day that my weekly plaints are
productive of some results. It may
be coincidence, or it may be, as the
recalcitrant witness in thc story said,
"merely a habit." Even the corners
abutting the Empress Hotel grounds
on thc Causeway show signs of the
intention of the City to try and effect
an improvement. True, we have to bc
■content with the intention so far, but
that is better than nothing. That they
are still an eye-sore counts not at all.
We can tell that thc Council is going to do something some day, for
they have cleared away the rubbish
that used to lie promiscuously around
and there are evidences that a spade
has been used on the plots in question. It is fair to conjecture that
some head-way will bc made in due
course of time; but of course wc
mustn't expect any hurry. Thc tourist season hasn't arrived yet and it
will be a much better advertisement
for Victoria if the visitors see work
going on close to their doors, instead
of seeing the finished results of the
same. In the latter case they might
not appreciate thc fact that we can
work in Victoria, but might consider
that the flowers arrived by thc same
miraculous means as Topsy thought
were instrumental in effecting her
evolution.
* * _ *
An   exchange  estimates   that  fully
25 per cent, of the men and young
boys of Canada over the age of
twelve do not know how to swim. If
this be a fair estimate, the sooner thc
percentage is brought down the better. The United States records for
1908 prove that nearly four thousand
persons, of whom all but three hundred were males, lost their lives
through accidental drowning. This is
a terrible state of affairs, the more
so that it is absolutely unnecessary.
The art of swimming should be made
a compulsory adjunct to all education. It is conceivable that there
may be places where there is no adequate provision made by Nature for
the acquisition of this art, but such
places must be very few and far between. Here in Victoria certainly
there is no such excuse for lack of
proficiency, and sooth to say, I do
not believe that non-swimmers form
anything like 25 per cent, of our population. Still that is no reason for
the few who do undoubtedly exist in
our fair city not coming in out of
the dry and getting their feet wet.
There is no exercise which really
comes up to swimming as a body developer; there is no accomplishment
which is needed in such a hurry when
the emergency does arise, and there
is no pleasure on a hot summer's day
which  eclipses a good bathe.
It is a well-known fact, but none
thc less extraordinary on that account, that a few years ago men who
lived and had their being on the waters were for the most part unable to
swim. I only once came across any
kind of a satisfactory reason for this,
and it is so naive that it is worth
quoting. An old salt when questioned as to this peculiarity said that he
for one would never learn to swim,
because if he did and was ship-wrecked in the open sea it would take him
so much longer to drown. "If a chap
can't swim," he said; "he just naturally goes plumb to the bottom, an'
it's all over; but if he can, he stays
up on top, a-hopin' for help whicii
don't come, an' then he goes an'
gets drowned jest the same after all."
Which is a logical, if somewhat lugubrious, way of looking at it.
* *   *
Really the selfishness of human nature is beyond all bearing. Whilst in
thc middle of writing on Tuesday I
was called away by the merry clanging of the fire-brigade and with many
others rushed over to Broad Street,
where there seemed every liklihood
of Spencer's indulging in another fire.
However, it turned out that it was
only a burst steam-pipe which was
responsible for thc excitement. Now
one would have thought that everyone would have been delighted that
Victoria was not in danger of suffering another holocaust; if altruism
were rampant in thc world everybody
would have been. As it was, murmurs
of disappointment were to be heard
and the crowd on the street seemed
in much the same humour as a theatre crowd when it feels it ought to
have its money back. I sometimes
think that the most unpopular people
on the scene of a fire are the firemen,
whose business it is to baulk the people of their pleasure. There is a
double portion of thc spirit of Nero
abroad in thc hearts of many of the
best of us, and though we may not
be proficient on the fiddle we arc
connoisseurs when it comes to a
blaze.
* *   *
On Thursday afternoon His Honour, the Lieutenant-Governor, will
open the Automobile exhibition at
the Drill Hall, the proceeds from
which are to be devoted to the Brit
ish and Foreign Sailors' Society. As
is well known to all Victorians this
is one of the most deserving charities to which they are occasionally
called upon to contribute and it is
hoped that the small admission fee
which will be charged at the door
will materially increase the funds at
present standing to the Society's
credit. It will be remembered that a
site for the building of a home in
Victoria has been procured in James'
Bay, but unless the public respond
generously to the appeals sent out to
them it will be some time before the
Society is in a position to proceed
with the building. The Fifth Regiment band will be in attendance in
the evenings, and there will be Other
entertainment provided by the sailors from Esquimalt. Dig, brothers,
dig, and turn up.
* *   *
Apart, however, from charitable
reasons, the exhibition will be worth
a visit both for all who are interested
in automobiles as owners, and for
those whose interest is a direct temptation to break the Tenth Commandment. Needless to say the Lounger
is numbered amongst the lattdr, but
though I know about as much of the
internal economy of a motor car as I
do about an air-ship I expect to
spend a very pleasant and interesting
hour at the Drill Hall next week and
to revel in an orgie of covetousness.
All the Victoria firms will have exhibits and I understand that thc
Canadian-Fairbanks are to have their
newest motor-boat model on the
stand. The exhibition should give
a big stimulus to the automobile
business in the Capital City and serve
to off-set the notoriety which it has
received lately in the police court owing to the recklessness of some drivers. So, as I said above, both for
the sake of sweet charity and for
your own edification and enjoyment
don"t forget to hunt up the spade
necessary for the digging process.
* *   *
I am glad to be able to record an
accident this week, the result of those
mysterious planks on the side-walks,
of which I have written before. I am
sorry for the individual, but on the
grounds that it "expedient that one
man should die for the people" perhaps the lady who was so unfortunate
as to fall on the corner of Yates and
Broad Streets last Saturday night
will pardon my expressing my pleasure that I have at last a concrete
fact, with which to wedge home my
complaints about these same obstructions to pedestrians. The planks in
that particular part of Victoria have
now disappeared, but there are still
curious little squares of timber dotted
about with no apparent aim in life except to inconvenience the public. Perhaps the next victim will be obliging
enough to break a limb and "soak"
the City heavily for costs and damages.
* *   *
What on earth does it mean when
we read in the paper that the United
States Government will move for the
criminal trial of thirty-four individuals
and four corporations which are defendants in the "bath-tub" trust
cases, and that the Attorney-General
will move for gaol sentences on conviction? One* would have thought
that the trusts had already cornered
everything in sight, but now it seems
that they are in league to pry into
our private ablutions. Just fancy
having to wash under the supervision
of a "trust." It would take us back
to the days of our infancy when
"mother" had to " 'zamine" all the
corners especially behind the ears.
But perhaps I am wrong and they
are only trying to control the out-put
of bath-tubs. In this case I suppose
we shall see a reversion to the days
when the Englishman abroad used to
pack his tub along with him, as the
snail does her house.

At the end of 1909 in an unaccustomed fit of generosity I offered, and
actually sent, a dollar to anyone sending in the best translation of the Provincial motto, "Splendor sine occasu,"
and the prize was awarded to "A Carpet Knight," for the rendering "War-
A Stupid Mistake
Customer (in cafe): "A boiled spring chicken, waiter,
and a split of Mumm's Extra Dry."
Waiter; "Yes, Sir!" (Later) "Find everything right,
Sir?"
Customer: "No, you've made a mistake; you've
brought me spring wine and an extra dry chicken."
This man would take no inferior substitute, but it was
his own mistake, he should have asked for "Extra Dry,
the bottle with the pink cap."
G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Extra Dry now on the market
is conceded to be the finest produced this decade. It is
made from selected grapes of the choicest vineyards in
the Champagne District and is noted for its superb quality,
natural dryness and absolute purity.
At all the prominent banquets and high class functions throughout the civilized world the one champagne
used exclusively is G. H. Mumm & Co's. Perhaps its
endorsement is still stronger in the fact that Royal Warrants are granted to G. H. Mumm & Co. by His Majesty
King George V., His Majesty the German Emperor, His
Majesty the King of Spain and all the other crowned
heads of Europe.

s .t often happens that American hu-
nour does not appeal to the theatre-
;oers of Victoria, but last Tuesday
ight George Ade's play found its
nark. It is a pity that the theatre
-.-as not better filled to see the splen-
id character study presented by Wil-
iam H. Turner. This was one of thc
[nest pieces of acting that I have
Ieen in this class of show. But
|hough Mr. Turner stood head and
Ihoulders above the rest of the com-
lany it was not quite the one-man
■how which is so frequently in evi-
lencc here. Frank Lyman, as the
larasitic major, played his part to
lcrfection, as did Leo Harding, the
Ipostle of manly sport. Of Miss
[eager as the Western girl, and Miss
linglcton as the society dame, I
lould say that if their make-up had
Ieen as good as their acting they
lould have stood higher in the
pinion of the audience.
The New Grand Theatre
I Thc Braggaar Brothers are quite
lie cleverest and most amusing
Jimblcrs that havc appeared on the

prful "stunts." Jere Sanford is a
retty whistler, a fine jodler and a
loroughly comical fellow into the

letch in which a bust and a mother-
j-law play a prominent part. Helen j

The Majestic Theatre
The wild  adventures    of    hunting
in Central Africa arc vividly prc-
litcd in a unique set of moving pieces to be shown at Majestic The-
re   Monday    and    Tuesday.     The
L-iies are laid in  British  Africa up
love Buluwayo and not only is the
pturing of the wildest specimens of
fauna of the jungle shown, but
I  vegetation and tropical surround-
|rs are all worked in.to thc small-

lating the beasts out of the bush by
lgang of  native  hunters.    At  first
Ithing is seen; then a head appears
Id    soon the    body of    some wild
last becomes visible.    By swift and

ak it out, surround it, rope it and
ag it palpitating   and helpless    to
eir camp, where it is safely caged,
giraffe, a    zebra,    a leopard, a
cheetah and a lioness are all captured
in this manner. A hippopotamus
crushing the reeds by the waterside
is one of the subjects that is lassooed
around the enormous snout, muzzled
tightly down and borne away. The
lioness, after a hot and dusty chase,
suddenly finds herself checked, and
with the swift-thrown lassoo encircling her neck is brought, half strangled, to the ground. She struggles and
her tawny breast flutters and palpitates, but the ropes enwind her like a
mesh, till all her legs are bound, her
claws are clipped with long pincers,
ancl with a muzzle thrown over her
head and her red eyes flickering
fiercely she is dragged to camp with
ropes hitched to the pommels of the
cowboys' saddles.
Afterwards the process of caging
is shown and finally they are hauled
on wagons to the nearest railway station and headed for the south. All
these scenes and many more are
shown in a marvellous reproduction
of a series of daring deeds, unique in
their bloodlessness and success.

Victoria Theatre
Characterised as the biggest musical play ever produced, "The Midnight Sons" with its company of ioo
people, and wonderfully realistic scenic effects, comes to the Victoria
theatre for two nights, Monday and
Tuesday, March 20th ancl 2ist, with
George VV. Monroe and many of the
original company in the cast.
To call "The Midnight Sons" a
musical comedy gives no idea as to
the character of the performance. It
is more a spectacular production than
a musical play. In New York they
called it a "musical moving picture
in eight films." The production is
staged in two acts and eight scenes.
The most remarkable of these pictures is that showing a Pullman train
in motion with a bridal party on the
rear platform, and the interior of an
opera house with perfectly arranged
orchestra seats and sloping aisles,
tiers of boxes, balcony and gallery,
with every incidental thing which
goes to add to the picturesqueness,
safety and comfort of a theatre, such
as ushers, water boys, program girls,
candy boxes on the back seats, carpets on the aisles, cushioned-back
orchestra chairs, calcium lights, spot
lights, red lights to mark exit doors,
etc. This scene lasts 35 minutes, and
is the most genuinely funny in the
play, with the possible exception of
the remarkable shoe store scene, in
which two grotesque cook ladies ask
to have their feet fitted by two dapper young clerks.
The Arcadians
Playgoers who find delight in color, refined comedy and good singing
in musical comedy, will be amused
with "The Arcadians," which holds
forth at thc Victoria Theatre on
Thursday,   March,   March   23rd.
Sponsored by Charles Frohman,
who has given us some fairly pretentious musical productions in the
past, and after a two years' run in
New York, "The Arcadians" comes
to this city with the same company
which ended its remarkable engagement in New York just recently. Indeed, 110 musical production of recent years can boast of a better cast
of principals than will be seen in this
latest of musical comedy successes.
j The girly galaxy and the male chor-
' istcrs of the play are said to bring
I the cast in its entirety close to one
hundred  people.
The first act takes place in Arcadia.
One James Smith, a London rcstaur-
| ant keeper and amateur aviator, falls
from his aeroplane into their village.
They know all London people only
from report, and think them monsters. Smith is ducked in thc "Well
of Truth"    for    prevaricating.      He
comes forth from the well minus his
whiskers and trousers. He is transformed into an Arcadian youth, in
costume, in nature and one who must
tell the truth. He, with Sombra and
Chrysea, two of the Arcadian maid
ens, go to London to convert the
monsters, male and female, and to
teach them thc beauty of simplicity.
The three acts of the play are replete with tuneful and catchy song
gems. Composer Monckton is said
to have supplied some of the most
melodious musical numbers that have
been heard in many seasons. Particularly noteworthy in the clever
score are "The Joy of Life," "The
Pipes of Pan," "Charming Weather,"
"Bring Me a Rose," "The Girl With
a Bit of a Brogue," "Truth is Beautiful," and "My Motter."

A Trip to the Shetlands
BY BOHEMIAN
When the hero or the modern romance finds occasion to go to Scotland the author invariably clothes
him in a fur-lined over-coat, endows
him with a travelling rug and cap,
pictures him hurrying into Euston or
King's Cross just in time to sink
back onto the luxurious cushions of
a first-class carriage and bids him
farewell as he "glides slowly forth
into the night on his long journey to
the North." This is how most people go to Scotland and it is undoubtedly their quickest method of arriving at their destination. However, I
want to write about another route
and one which is, f think, far more
enjoyable and which should appeal to
all those who have plenty of time on
their hands and who are not afraid
of "mal-de-mer."
Leaving St. Catherine's Docks twice
a week, or it may be every other day,
is a line of first-class passenger steamers. They are miniature liners and
deserve all that can be said of them
in the way of praise. The accommodation is all that can be desired,
they are quite speedy enough for thc
average man and they usually carry
a passenger list of "good fellows."
Backwards and forwards they ply between London and Leith. You steal
down the river towards the close of
an afternoon, and to my mind there
are few more fascinating sights than
the shipping in the Thames viewed
through the half-lights of a setting
sun and a dim haze. The early morning finds the boat somewhere off the
eastern coast, but I will not risk correction by specifying the exact latitude. I know that later in the day
we were somewhere north of Whitby with its white cliffs, whence its
name, when wc saw one of our far-
famed Destroyers going through her
speed tests. This in itself is a sight
which not everyone has witnessed and
it possesses a fascination hard to describe. Of course, such items are
not included in the scheduled bill of
fare, but there is always a chance of
such excitement being provided as
the measured course lies on the direct
line north. Milder interest may be
displayed when passing the celebrated Farn Islands where visions of
Grace Darling can bc conjured up ad
lib.
Towards evening the Firth of Forth
is reached, its approach heralded by
the famous Bass Rock, the home of
the solan goose and the dark har-
bourcrs of many a secret in the
stormy days of the Covcmantcrs. Opposite frown the ruined battlements of
Tantallon Castle, connected, so rumour has it with the Rock by a submarine tunnel. But thc passage, if
ever passage there was, has long
since been blocked up and there remains no vestige of its existence at
the present day. On thc Bass Rock
many of the Covenanters were imprisoned when Charles II. was king,
and tales are told of thc attempts
■ made to procure their escape. One
more incident in connection with thc
Rock and its feathered inhabitants
may bc retailed. The wild fowl are
very poor eating, being, as is natural,
strongly impregnated with a fishy
taste, but on one occasion a solan
goose Avas served, up and set before
the king. After essaying the food
the  Merrie  Monarch  turned  to  his
companions and remarked that Scot-1
land would be a very fine country if |
it were not for two things, the solan j
goose and  the  Solemn  League  and ■
Covenant.    His companions observed ;
that thc royal brain had perpetrated a
pun  and  laughed  accordingly.    The |
wild  birds which nest  on  the  Rock
form one of thc wonders of the world
and  I  believe  I am  right in saying
that they are protected by law.
Leith, one of the busiest ports in |
Scotland and our first objective, soon
comes into view, and here we disembark for the night, driving up over
the cobbles to Edinburgh. Most people have been to Scotland's capital,
and those who have not have at least
read about it, so there is no occasion
for me to attempt to describe it. I
will on to Aberdeen, the Granite City,
of thc North, which may be reached
cither by rail or boat. Here it is
that wc take boat in order to make
thc.trip up to the Island which lies
most northerly of all Great Britain.
The first call is made at Kirkwall, the
principal town of thc Orkneys, and
here we have just time enough to
walk up to the old church which has
a history* of its own and is thc proud
possessor of a very ancient door.
Needless to say, there is some legend
attached to this door, but the only
thing that I can remember about it
is that there was some embezzlement
connected with a sum of money raised many years ago in order to restore it.
Our next and last stopping place is
Lerwick, the capital of the Shetlands.
It is a curious little town with its
side-walks raised high above the
road, in fact the only industry is that
of fishing. Men, women and children
are all engaged in this and may be
seen in their quaint fishers' garb busily engaged in cleaning and salting
the fish or making and mending the
nets. One night we stayed in Kirkwall, for it was our intention to put in
a fortnight at St. Magnus, a holiday
resort on the west coast. As the
road goes, the distance between the
two places is some thirty miles an.f
seeing that we were energetic and
the weather was fine we determined
to walk it. We therefore left our
baggage to be sent by the mail cart
which traverses the island three times
a Aveek, and set out, intending to
reach St. Magnus in time for dinner.
Alas, for our anticipations. It may
be only thirty miles, but they are not
the kind of miles to which the Low-
lander is accustomed. Also the Avea-
ther, which had been so promising.
went back on its word and the rain
came down as in the days of Noah.
Finally we reached a little hamlet
on the shores of a branch of the sea.
And here Ave had a glimpse of the
true Scotch trader's conscience. There
was a general store in the place and
amongst other necessaries it boasted
whiskey. But it possessed no licence
to sell drink by the glass. However,
a compromise was effected, and we
sat on a tub outside where we drank
thc whiskey, and only went inside to
pay for it.
Here we found a jolly crew of
fishermen who were taking their
boat part of the way towards our destination, and we gladly accepted their
offer of a lift. We sailed down thc
branch for some miles and were finally put off about fifteen miles from
St. Magnus. By now it was pitch
dark and still wet, so we decided to
put up at the first house we found.
Fortunately, it was not long before
we struck what wc wanted and we
were entertained in a cotter's hut for
the night. They gave us ham and
eggs, a bed and breakfast for the
enormous sum of 20 cents apiece in
Canadian money.
We had had enough of walking and
in thc morning persuaded the cotter
to drive us over to St. Magnus which
he did, charging us about thirty shill-i
ings.   Needless to say we were looking forward to a change of clothing.
Judge then of our disgust when we <
found that thc baggage had been left
behind and that thc mail-cart Avould
not again arrive for three clays, this
being  Friday.    However,  there  was
nothing to do but grin and bear it,
and as the only other guests wcre a |
party of men, like ourselves out for a
holiday with no cares about appear*

subdivision on the market.

ances, Ave did not feel put to the
blush.
There is an excellent modern hotel
at St. Magnus and in fine weather I
can imagine no pleasanter place for
a holiday. Even as it was, with rain
pouring down every day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, though we
were compelled to spend the greater
part of our time in-doors whiling
away the hours playing solo whist
for modest stakes. Some days were
fine, however, and then the place became a miniature Paradise. On the
big sloping hills mushrooms grew in
thousands; the scenery Avas unique
and the sunsets were a dream. Close
by is a large whaling station, but at
no time did we observe its provimity
by other means than by our eyes.
When we left St. Magnus, which
we did with regret, we returned by
another route, taking the western
line from the Shetlands to Strom-
ness on the Orkneys, thence across
the island by stage to Kirkwall. At
the hotel here we played our final
game of solo and embarked at midnight for Aberdeen. It is a curious
thing that with so many beautiful
spots close to their own doors so few
Englishmen take the trouble to explore them, but prefer to run off for
their holidays to the Continent,
where they miss half the fun of a trip
by not being able to speak the language, have all the bother of passing
the Customs and spend their good
money amongst foreigners instead
of with their own people. However
we have all been offenders in this
respect, and by no means the least
of these is

thc Kootenay Central railway south
from Golden. This carries out the
plan of thc company to gradually
complete this line and connect Golden
with Galloway on the Crow's Xest
route, opening up rich agricultural
lands.
Western Settlers
Before nine o'clock one morning
this month between 1,000 and 1,200
new settlers passed through Winnipeg
on their way to the west. This enormous rush was brought about by the
arrival of thc Empress of Ireland, on
which thc number of passengers was
so heavy that it required four trains
to get them through to thc west.
Going in to Fort George
A party of twelve carpenters in the
employ of a Vancouver contracting
firm, Messrs. Bookhout, Clark & Davis, started out for Fort George re
cently with a large supply of tools
and other materials, having purchased
a team and horses here. The firm
have at present contracts for the
erection in Fort George of six stores,
a bank, three dwelling houses and
various other structures.
Million Dollar Store at Calgary
The Hudson's Bay Co. will commence work within a month on a
great new building which will cost
about $1,000,000. The building will be
absolutely up to date, will be five or
six stories at first with foundations
heavy enough to hold eight or ten
stories, according to thc limit set by
the city bylaws. There will be a
frontage of 230 feet and a depth of
150 feet.
Payment of Members
In llic Ontario legislature last week
Sir James Whitney went over the bill
to amend thc Legislative Assembly
Act. Members will bc allowed $20 a
day for attendance for any session of
less than 30 days. Members will be
allowed also $20 for every day spent
travelling to thc Legislature. They
will have $15 deducted for each day's
absence over 56 days, except through
illness.
Final Location
A party of some thirty odd G. T. P.
surveyors under M. A. Roby and W.
F. Graham havc come from the north
and disbanded at Ashcroft.
They consisted of several parties
that went in at Prince Rupert to work
south, and also of one party that
started at Lillooet last summer to survey up the Fraser. It was the intention of these separate outfits, one going north and thc other south, to meet
at some point on thc Fraser. This
they did, meeting a little above Chil-
coten Creek, thus linking up the line
practically from Prince Rupert and
Fort George to Vancouver. There are
no more survey parties out at present
up to Fort George, and it is understood that the route just linked up is
undoubtedly the final location of the
G. T. P. from Fort George south. The
coming season may see various
changes in different localities, but the
main route is assured.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MARCH 18, 1911
I
Some idea of the magnitude of the company's plans may be
gained from the fact that the steel works will be designed with a
capacity of one thousand tons daily. There will be two 300-ton
blast furnaces and five open-hearth furnaces, as well as all other
'incidental equipment.
The company's plans are certain of being carried through, according to Mr. Gibbs, as European capital is now backing the venture.
Repeatedly, from time to time, there have been announcements of alleged intentions on the part of powerful syndicates to
establish steel works in this province, but the above statement
from so reliable a source as the Toronto Globe bears all the earmarks of genuineness.
Sir Donald Mann, about a year ago, expressed the opinion that
it was entirely feasible to establish a steel and iron works on Vancouver Island. He said that the Island possessed all the raw material and that the day was not far distant when a home market
for the output would render the establishment of such works imperative. "I can assure you," said Sir Donald, "that when we
have got our road built on the Island if no one else has established
the enterprise I will take the matter up myself."
Since that date there have been developments whicii make
the inauguration of such important industry more feasible than
had ever before been apparent. The decision of the Ottawa Government to commence the upbuilding of a Canadian navy, constructing as many ships as possible in Canadian yards, the awarding of a contract for a huge drydock at Esquimalt to Bullen Bros.,
and the decision of that firm to tender for the construction of a
number of destroyers—are factors in the creation of a situation
which tends to make imperative the establishment of steel works
in this province.
The announcement is of supreme importance to the Island
aside from the fact that the erection of such works would assist in
the creation of ship-building plants, because Vancouver Island
possesses an unlimited quantity of raw material. Dr. Haanel, the
Dominion Government expert who made a report on the iron deposits of the Island a few years ago, expressed the most optimistic
opinions relative to the future of the industry in this section of the
province.
CONCERNING THE ISLAND MINES
Two interesting announcements relative to Vancouver Island's
premier industry, coal mining, have just been made—one, to the
effect that the Western Fuel Company of Nanaimo, has purchased
ithe bunkers formerly owned by the Pacific Improvement Company
at San Francisco, and the other that the Canadian Collieries, Ltd.,
(Mackenzie & Mann) increased its output in a period of six months'
operations 10 per cent, over a similar period's operations by the
old company (R. Dunsmuir & Sons). The San Francisco Chronicle in a recent issue had the following:
"As a result of the independent move on the part of the R.
Dunsmuir & Sons Company in breaking away from the local coal
combine, the Western Fuel Company has purchased the rights to
the Vallejo street bunkers from the Pacific Improvement Company
for $45,000, according to information discussed in shipping circles
yesterday. The Western Fuel Company, on account of the independent invasion of the field by the Dunsmuir concern, had to
give up the Folsom street bunkers to their new rival, from whom
they had leased them. The Mission street bunkers alone not being equal to handle its business, the Western Fuel negotiated for
the Vallejo street bunkers. The Pacific Improvement Company,
which is an adjunct of the Southern Pacific, it is said, has no
longer- any particular use for the bunkers, as the vessels and engines whicii it formerly supplied have taken to the use of oil as
fuel."
Canada, the well-known London, Eng., publication, in its issue
just to hand, says:
"One of the most important coal-producing companies of the
Dominion is the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited, of Vancouver, the operations of which during the six months ending
December 31, have been so successful as to result in net profits
amounting to $431,818, a sum very nearly sufficient for the service
of the debenture issue, which requires $500,000 per annum. The
average monthly net profits at present are about $70,000, or equal
to $840,000 a year, The output is about 2,500 tons per day, an increase approximately of 10 per cent, over that of the previous company for the corresponding months of last year, and it is anticipated that, upon the completion of thc improvements and developments in hand, this will be increased at least 20 per cent., or to
3,000 tons.
"The progress now reported is attributable to the more effective management which has been instituted. It is also found that
the power plants of the present mines, particularly at Comox, can
be permanently improved by the utilization of the Puntledge river,
adjacent to the Comox mines, to the extent of a possible development of 25,000 horse-power, which is more than double the anticipated needs of the company for years at least, while the immediate
requirements is 5,500 horse-power. This can be secured at a capital cost not to exceed $60 per horse-power, and the maximum $55
per horse-power. It is estimated that steam plant would cost
nearly, if not quite, as much per horse-power to install, and more
than four times as much annually to run. The saving by such
utilization will, therefore, be considerable.
"The new mines in the Comox field, and an additional one in
the Wellington field, it is contemplated, will in due time bring the
output up to 6,000 tons per day. Notwithstanding increased wages
and exceptional expenses, through economical working, the cost
of mining has remained practically stationary, and the directors
feel confident that the contemplated improvements will not exceed
the $3,000,000 provided."

THE DOMINION TRUST COMPANY
At a banquet held on March ioth, in the Bijou Hall, Granville
Mansions, Vancouver, when the directors and officers of the Dominion Trust Company dined as the guests of the Company's
staff, Mr. W. R. Arnold, the managing director, made the following interesting statements when responding to the toast of "The
Directors and Officers." After thanking the Company for the
kindness shown him, he said that it had been hard work for the
)ast seven years, but satisfaction was to be found in the success
hat had been made for the first five years, but the business now
Yas twenty times as great as it was at the close of 1905 and ten
imes as great as it was at the end of 1908. Mr. Arnold gave some
gures demonstrating the wonderful growth of the company. In
908 the assets were $98,435; in 1910, $1,643,496. The mortgage
usiness for 1910 amounting to $1,327,873. The trusteeship, $3,-
64,953. Their insurance in force was $6,378,821. He closed with
n eloquent tribute to t^e loyalty and devotion of the staff and
redicted that the Dominion Trust Company was determined to be
he leading financial concern of Canada.
Brief speeches were also made by Mayor L. D. Taylor, Dr.
)rey (New Westminster); A. E. Planta and Henry Croft.
YELLOWHEAD PASS COAL
It is understood that the C. N. R. Company has been negotiat-
(ig- for the possession of extensive coal interests on the shores of
[rule Lake, near the Yellowhead Pass. The property lies on rhe
roposed main line of the C. N. R. through the mountains. No
etails are yet to hand. The transfer will involve a large sum of
loney.
GRANBY SMELTER IS IN FULL BLAST AGAIN
After a partial shutdown owing to the breakage of some of
le machinery at the mines at Phoenix, the Granby Smelter is
rain in full blast.   There is a sufficient supply of ore on hand to
liarantee the mpnagement blowing in the three furnaces at pres-
It down.   There is plenty of coke coming now, and the remainder
this month should see a new record established for the smelting
ore at the reduction works.
For the week ending March 2 the Granby smelter treated 18,-
|2 tons of ore, all but 528 tons of which came from the company's
m mines.   This is about the amount treated during the preced-
week, and like it about 6,000 tons below the average since the
Iddle of last December.    Shipments  of  blister copper for the
hek totalled 351,000 pounds, also about the same as last week,
Id nearly 100,000 pounds below the average of late.
The Granby company has completed a deal whereby it takes
|working bond on sixteen claims in the Chesaw district.   These
on Copper mountain.   It is the intention to start developing
|)rk on these properties as soon as machinery can be secured and
stalled, which will in all probability be before the end of next
brith.
SIR THOMAS IS TO SPEND $14,000,000
That American farmers who leave the North-Western States
Itake up homesteads in Canada become most loyal British sub-
Its, was the substance of a statement made lately by Sir Thomas
aughnessy.
He refused to discuss the failure of Congress to ratify the
ladian reciprocity treaty, although he said that subject is the
icipal topic of discussion in the Dominion at the present time.
Sir Thomas announced that the Canadian Pacific Railway will
|)end $14,000,000 this year in constructing new branch lines. Be-
een five hundred and six hundred miles of branch roads will be
[istructed and ready for operation before the end of the present
►r.
"This ,of course," he said, "will call for the expenditure of
Ige sums of money in providing additional rolling stock."
Sir Thomas continued that Canada has never known a more
lisperous era, and American farmers are continuing to flock to
Dominion by thousands.   One surprising thing is that these
Iv citizens become most loyal subjects of Great Britain.
THE WHEAT MARKET
Reliable estimates received from Winnipeg figure now that

D,ooo bushels in country elevators, making thei total interior

like $500,000 from investors in all parts of the world for Wireless

Munroe who is on trial for alleged misuse of the mails in selling
stock, represented his firm as American agents for the Marconi
Wireless Telegraph Co., of England, according to testimony which
has been given.
1 Walter M. Watson, Monroe's former stock transfer clerk, who
Avas examined in regard to the bookkeeping entries today, testified
that at no time did the Munroes have more than 1,000 shares of
English Marconi, though it is alleged by Government officials that
the firm received money for upwards of 50,000 shares.
Testimony that they had sent money to Munroe for Wireless
Stock which was never delivered was given by Robert S. Snoke, of
South Bend, Ind., and Lorin C. Norris, of Methuen, Mass.

MR. COTTINGHAM ON RECIPROCITY FOR CANADA
Mr. Walter Cottingham, president of .the Sherwin-Williams
Co., one of the largest and most successful industrial concerns in the
world, Avas in Montreal lately.
Mr. Cottingham is an old Montrealer, and, as he expresses it,
-will never lose his affection for his old country.
Speaking of reciprocity, he said to the Star:—"I read Sir William Van Home's letter with much interest. It was splendid. As
a business man, I believe reciprocity Avould be a good thing for the
United States, but is the wrong policy for Canada to adopt. I am
glad, speaking as a loyal Canadian, to find so many interests here
opposed to it.   Canada's destiny lies in another direction."
"Canada needs a substantial tariff to foster its groAvth—a tariff
that Avill make the Americans come over here and build their
factories.   That is what Ave had to do."

The Retort Courteous
"You may think I am a liar," a
debtor told a solicitor at the Shore-
ditch County Court. "I know I may
think so; what I am trying to find
out is, are you?"  was  the reply.
The Dean of St. Paul's
The Dean of St. Paul's is forwarding to the Prime Minister a formal
intimation that he desires to resign
his office as from May 1 next. Dr.
Gregory has just passed his ninety-
second birthday.

Friendly Society by the Riverside. It
has sixteen stories.

The parliamentary grant for education in England and Wales continues
to grow. According to a Blue-book
just issued the net expenditure for
the year ending March 31, 1910, was
£13,638,424, as against £13,485,233 in

Mr. F. E. Smith, K.C, M.P., was
chairman at the cinematograph trade
dinner at the Hotel Cecil last month,
and made an eloquent speech in
praise of the picture theatre. "There
are 4,000 picture theatres in this
country," he said, "and I am thankful
for every one of them."
A Famous Chapel Closed
The French chapel of St. Louis de
France, in Little George-tsreet, Port-
man-sqtiare, London, was closed on
Sunday, Feb. 19th, and no further
services will be held there. The reason given is that the necessary expenditure exceeded the income. Thc
chapel was established in 1799, and
among those who attended its services
were King Louis XVIII.

service is shown in the Civil Service
is shown in the Civil Service expenditure reports, just published, to have

gadine. She will be a sister ship in
every respect. Each will carry about
1,200 passengers.

Skull 170,000 Years Old
Professor Arthur Keith, conservator of the museum of the Royal
College of Surgeons, declared in a
lecture at the college recently that
the age of modern man had been
totally underestimated in the past. He
estimated the age of a human skull
found in Kent in 1888 at 170,000
years.
Aurochs for the Zoo
A most rare animal will shortly be
shown to visitors to the Zoological
Gardens in the shape of an aurochs,
or European wild ox. It has been
presented by the Duke of Bedford.
The aurochs, which overran Europe
in the time of the Goths, has suffered even more from contact with civilization than his cousin, the American bison, and the few left in Lithuania are rigorously protected by the
law.
Chief Scout's  Birthday
General Baden-Powell, the chief of
the Boy Scouts, celebrated his fifty-
fourth birthday on Feb. 22 and received congratulatory letters, postcards, and telegrams from scouts all
over the world. In one batch there
were a cablegram from Ontario, a
letter from thc Transvaal, and another from Switzerland. The Johannesburg letter concluded: "During the
Duke of Connaught's visit here the
scouts did very useful work as regards ambulance and keeping the
crowd in order. All scouts are working hard ,as all want to go home to
the  Coronation."
King George V. Stamps
All the designs for the new King
George V. postage stamps have now
been finally approved by the King,
and the work of engraving the plates
for the printing of the stamps is being rapidly carried out at the Royal
Mint. The King has throughout been
extremely interested in the preparations for the issue of his stamps. He
has seen designs, sample engravings,
and proof stamps, and has kept in
touch with every stage of thc work.
As in the case of the King Edward
stamps, the new issue will vary in
border and lettering according to the
different values, but the head of the
King will be the same on every
stamp. Thc stamps will bc issued
late in May or early in June.
New Cambridge Professor
The Vice-Chanccllor of Cambridge
University, Mr. R. F. Scott, has been
informed by the Prime Minister that
the King has been pleased to approve
the appointment of Mr. Arthur
Woolgar Verrall, Litt.D., to the King
Edward VII. Professorship of Eng-
Clifford's Inn Saved
Clifford's Inn, as to the fate of
which many fears havc been expressed, is to be preserved from demolition,
The inn is a picturesque relic of
Old London, completely hidden away
behind St. Dunstan's Church, Fleet-
street, E.C., and approached through
an old iron gateway in Fetter-lane
and by narrow passages in Fleet-
street and Chancery-lane.
The preservation of the inn is due
to the generosity of members of thc
Society of Knights Bachelor from
Overseas. It is for the society that
the buildings have been acquired as a
permanent home. When the alterations are made the Knights of the
Empire will be provided with a central meeting place, a library of works
relating to heraldry in general and
thc degree in particular, and an entertainment hall, on the walls of which
thc arms of the various members of
the degree may be inscribed and have
a permanent place.

The Hot Point Electric Iron
Will Satisfy Anyone
The tremendous success the Hot Point Electric Iron has made i n the
households of this country is because this iron was first constructed to meet
the exact requirements of laundry service. An electric iron that will satisfy
an up-to-date laundryman will satisfy anyone. It must be able to stand up
under continuous service, be hot enough to handle all classes of work, use the
current economically, easy to handle and quickly repaired. This is an exact
illustration of the Hot Point Iron.
It makes ironing; pleasant, saves money, steps, time,
trouble, temper and perspiration
It makes the maid contented because she can iron faster and better and have
more time to herself. It is a wonderful boon to the mistress because she can
attach to any electric light socket and iron her costly lace, that she will not
trust to other hands, in any room she pleases, even attach the iron to the
electric light socket on the back veranda during the hot weather and iron in
perfect coolness and comfort.
MOST SMART WOMEN NOW-A-DAYS CARRY AN ELECTRIC IRON WITH THEM WHEN TRAVELLING. IT HAS BECOME A NECESSITY. FOR THIS THE "HOT POINT" IRON HAS MORE COMMEN DABLE FEATURES THAN ANY OTHER BY REASON OF ITS
THREE-IN-ONE OUTFIT, INVENTED EXPRESSLY FOR TOURIS TS. CALL HERE AND SEE THIS BEST OF ALL ELECTRIC IRONS

Heat and Cold
To thc Editor of The Week:
Sir,—I saw a paragraph in your last
week's "Week" about a literary gem
that appeared in an issue of the "Colonist," which was: "Which travels
the faster, heat or cold?" whereto the
answer was: "Heat, because anyone
can catch cold."
Let us sec:   Taking cold and heat
in a similar sense I think I can give
new proof that the old answer to the
aid conundrum is perfectly true.  For
instance:    Let   Brown   stand   in   a
fraught today, he will not be buying
ncdicine, or soaking his feet in hot
vater till the day after;  but let Jones
.all Brown a liar and Brown will get
lot so quickly that hc will feel as if
lis collar had melted and was running
lown his back, and if it wasn't that
[ones is  twice    as    big    as  Brown,
Brown  would  hammer Jones  into a
vhite heat,   and   homogeneous mass,
quicker than you could say Jack Rob-
nson.   Fortunately it always happens
n a case of this kind that Jones is
twice as big as Brown.    But that has
nothing to do  with  the  rest of the
argument—which   all   goes   to  prove
that   heat   travels   faster   than   cold.
Let me pen another instance:   A fellow once told me how he knew heat
travelled faster than cold.     He took
.ip   a   homestead   in   Saskatchewan,
Banklcy  Valley or  some  other province in the vicinity of the north pole
—I forget which one it was—anyway
lor 6 months  the  cold was  intense,
ind at a stand still.    It did not travel  at  all,  he  said.    He   became  so
sick of a cold that seemed too slow
to move, that he was taken with an
irresistible desire to go in search of
;i ray of heat for a change, that he
packed up and started for Victoria—
i city of which he had heard so much.
He said it was perfectly true that heat
travelled faster than cold, for hc did
lot catch the ray of heat hc was after
Hil hc landed right in Victoria.   And
;ie says now he has caught it he is
?oing to stick to it.

TOPICAL  TRIFLES-XIX.
(By Onlooker)
The horny-handed members of the
British Columbia Federation of Labor
have been having the time of their
lives at the convention of that august body lately held in Victoria. A
most enjoyable time was spent in
framing up a few little ideas, and
repudiating other peoples' ideas. Apparently they desire, very sapiently,
to keep the good things of this country for themselves. They think it a
shame that labor conditions should
be grossly misrepresented in Europe
that poor misguided aliens should be
duped into flocking to this already
over-populated part of the world.
Some people consider it very sparsely
populated, but of course everything
depends upon the point of view. A
very general point of view regarding
British Columbia is the desirability
of a free inflow of capital for investment in various enterprises; and for
the exploitation of capital, labor is
necessary, or capital will bc diverted
into other channels. The laborites
have unique ideas peculiar to themselves on this subject, and they have
certainly got it in for poor Richard
who ought to have arranged it all
for them. It is also very sad to think
that their religious susceptibilities
should have been so rudely shocked
by the actions of the Salvation Army
who "under thc mask of religion
have cruelly deceived the innocent."
However, Sir Donald Mann says,
"let 'em all come"; thc Empress Hotel is going to have a new wing, and
the S. A. still havc enough nerve to
sing,   "Glory,  Glory,  Hallelujah!"
It seems to be the peculiarity of
many people who for some reason or
other find their way into print, to lay
down the law in a singularly arbitrary manner, and the article appearing in a Victoria Colonist supplement
by a young lady addicted to early
morning walks and the old-fashioned
bloomer,   aroused   quite   a   storm  of
indignation by her statements concerning thc characteristics of English
and American women. As the young
lady is residing in New York for
the avowed purpose of completing her
still incomplete education, naturally
she cannot be possessed of the "savey" of Elinor Glyn, who in her "Visits of Elizabeth to America," fairly
hits the nail on the head over and
over again. Elinor Glyn, however,
has lately stood corrected for misstatements regarding the birth rate
on Fifth Avenue, New York. According to another lady's word, there
have been several babies born on
Fifth Avenue during thc last few
years. Mrs. Glyn ought to be glad
to hear she counted wrong, as her
writings are obviously in favor of
the increase of posterity.

NOTICE
Wonderful Shooting
Service circles are keenly interested in thc progress of the gunnery experiments now being carried on in
the Mediterranean by H.M.S. Neptune. On February 13 a flagstaff
thirty feet high and four inches
broad was dropped at a distance of
nine thousand yards, or just over five
miles, from the ship. The flagstaff
was invisible to the naked eye of
anyone on board the Neptune. When
the button was touched by the control aloft five 12-inch shells went
straight as a die to thc target more
than fivc miles off. Thc fivc shells
fell in a space of a hundred and fifty
yards.
"I hope you were a good little boy-
while at your aunt's and didn't tell any
stories," said his mother.
"Only the one you put me up to, ma,"
replied her young hopeful.
"Why, what do you mean, child?"
"When she asked me If I'd like to
have a second piece of cake I said "No,
thank  you;  I've  had   enough."

Water and Labour
To the Editor of The Week:
A few weeks ago I sent a copy of
your paper to a former Victorian. I
did so because it gave, in short, much
that I wished my friend to know of
what was going on here. As my correspondent is a pithy writer I hope
you will he able to spare a little space
for his remarks. He writes hc is
"very sorry to hear of the death of
Mr. Lubbe, no doubt hastened by long
conflict and thc bad treatment he has
received in his ably considered and
admirably executed scheme, when it
is compared with thc crude efforts of
his antagonists and their success with
the electorate. It makes one dubious
as to thc sanity of one's fellow men.
I am sorry that poor Lubbe never
lived to hear the verdict whicii I am
sure posterity must one day give
when a chastened electorate has burdened itself with thc cost of its
whims."
My friend also writes: "I often
talk to people about thc Chinese question. I feci certain thc future prosperity of thc Pacific Coast entirely
depends on commercial relations with
China and the other countries of thc
cast; that a time must come when
all these restrictions will be laughed
at as obsolete. I don't want ever to
see thc barrier of race antipathy broken down as far as inter-marriage is
concerned, but in all matters relating
to commerce and labour I am more
than ever convinced that thc whole
thing will have to go by the board—
though we may not live to see it."
Most of us are not prepared to go
so far as my correspondent but outside of unreasonable trade unions,
every one—from Sir Wilfrid Laurier
down—admits that our present legislation has something wrong; even
trade union members are glad to avail
themselves of help which as a body
they deny to others. I personally
would like to go slowly, I should like
to consult Mr. Shallcross or others,
to admit labour for a term of years
and make arrangements so that it
would suit the Chinese to return to
their wives and families after so many
years' service. This can be done by
entry payments to be returned say, at
the end of six years. Perhaps wc
might prohibit it in future, thc holding of real estate by Chinese. We
have passed laws to prevent Chinese
from building certain railways; these
laws must stand. Our farmers are
thc chief sufferers; then domestic service, chiefly for poor people, the
clergy and people in situations. No
country ever had a better opportunity for getting cheap labour—and we
are the greater fools to shut it out.
It is nothing new for the men of
thc house to go out to work. Seventy
years ago I remember Irish labourers
came to cut our crops in the Old
Country, and went home with sufficient to pay the rent. Our labour is
continuous; but it is no great hardship to employ the men only for a few
years and leave the wives and children
at home—or better, come here before
they marry.
When  the  recent  enquiry was  on
i foot as to smuggling Chinese into thc
province, two of our most prominent
men said to me they had little sym
pathy with the enquiry. This, I
think, we may take for granted.
Every man in Victoria, or perhaps in
thc province has so much sympathy
with the Chinese that if their own
cook was certainly smuggled in, no
one would inform. This makes every
man of us ready o be a sort of receiver of stolen property.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier takes interest in
the domestic arrangements of the
Orientals, so that they may have their
wives and families here. His duty is
more imperative to allow our own
people to avail themselves of domestic help in their homes and in their
families, and hc ought to be above
the clamour of trade unions when
they are distinctly unreasonable.

A charming afternoon street gown
f black velvet, designed for the Ri-
era, worn with a small shoulder
ipe, has its loosely fitted corsage
lade half of velvet and half of black
russels net, thickly woven with
nail steel beads. A large silk-cov-
'ed cord joins the two materials,
he elbow sleeves, shaped in one
ith the net upper part, are drawn
ith slight fulness into a tight band
rvered with a twist of black satin;
the back of it drop little pointed
ibs edged with the tiniest of steel
uttons; ai black satin belt, .much
rinkled, ties at one side, with larger
itton-trimmed tabs, and an odd
)ke-shaped velvet collar, its edge
it straight across from shoulder to
oulder, leaving the throat exposed,
and smartness. The skirt was attached to the body part, in a round,
short-waisted line covered with a
plain, wide belt of the material corded on each edge, and fastened at one
side of the front by a cloth-covered
buckle. The round neck was finished
simply with a big, cloth-covered cord.
The front lapped a bit in its closing
with three big,! cloth-covered buttons, set on inside gray horn rims.
Under a short, close cap the sleeves,
slightly fulled, were gathered again
into a straight wrist band, loose
enough to allow the passage of the
hand. Band and sleeve cap were finished with the cloth-covered cord.
Without  losing any of its  smartness  this coat could well be copied
I fastened with a black satin cravat
match. The short skirt seemed
liusually graceful; plainly fitted in
lont and on the sides, with a little
Illness gathered into a small space
li the middle of the back. The hat
lorn with this costume is quite in
larmony—a large, flat one, posed in
J way to show the back hair, covered
Imoothly with black satin and trim-
lied with gray lace—two bands of it,
Ine laid flatly on the brim, close to
lie crown, the other circling it, the
lnds are hidden under a puff of short,
llack feathers. Gray velvet faces
lie wide brim. A new long coat of
■ale gray ratine, I saw the same day,
lad  a  quite special  air  of novelty
in white cloth with black velvet buttons, belt and sleeve bands.
*   *   *
Also, original and interesting, I
thought, was a coat of black satin
seen at the same house. This was
made in separate skirt and body part,
but the skirt, gathered at the back
only, was belted in a highly ornamental fashion with a much-trimmed
belt, raised a little higher in the back,
buckled in front. Small triple collars covered the shoulders, meeting
narrow triple revers that lengthened
to the belt. Long, straight and tight,
the sleeves finished in small down-
turning triple cuffs. The trimming,
jet  and  heavy silk embroidery,  was
concentrated on the wide belt and
jet buckle; all other decoration was
confined to a silk-covered cord that
finished all the edges. The description will show these coats to have
strong Directoire suggestions.
Fillet lace and linen fringe trims a
new, long coat of string colored
broadcloth—an elegant garment.
Close-fitting, the seamless upper part
is joined to filet lace just below the
hips in a wide band, and is lengthened to within a quarter of a yard
of the ground by heavy filet fringe.
A sleeve cap, shaped with the body
part, is trimmed with narrower fringe
that falls over a lace elbow puft
drawn into a cloth cuff; the cuff flares,
lace-covered buttons trim it; and there
is a small, square, fringed lace collar.
* *   *
Fringe is prominent on silk street
costumes. Particularly desirable is
one of black satin and black velvet,
made with double skirts. The scant
lower skirt of black velvet clears the
ground; the silk one is a little
shorter all around and in front curves
a foot or so higher.
At the back the thick, coarse, silk
fringe that trims it, reaches just to
the edge of the under skirt. Quite
new in form, the straight-cut, half-
long coat is loosely belted with
heavy, double silk cords; knotted at
intervals, the cords finally gather
themselves into a large flat rosette,
closing the coat as it slightly laps to
one side.
* *   *
Of extreme elegance is a tailored
costume of fine black cloth, trimmed
with velvet bands covered with a lattice work of fine silk cord. A wide
band of it, knee high, crosses the
skirt, to disappear under the edges
of a wide box-plait that finishes the
back breadth. Flat velvet and cord
buttons hold the edges of the plait—
set in clusters—to the edge of the
trimming. Made entirely of the lovely netted velvet is the wide, square
coat collar and cuffs, and a half belt
that holds a bit of fulness high in
the back.
Among the new tailored costumes
for late winter at the Riviera, and
early spring in town, appears the
perennial black and white wool mixture. The material, however, seems
quite new; a soft, coarsely woven,
white stuff barred off with wide black
lines into inch squares, and the corsage suggesting a belted Eton jacket,
has a pleasing air of novelty. Revers,
extremely wide at the shoulder, narrowing as they descend to the belt,
where they lap, and bag a little, are
faced with ratine, and double cuffs,
one of white ratine, the other of
black velvet, trim the long, tight,
coat sleeves; there is a wide collar
of black velvet that turns back the
neck, meeting the revers on the
shoulder and held over them, a little,
by white ratine-covered buttons.
Close-hung and short, the skirt opens
at each side over a narrow panel of
the pretty white material. Three
large, flat, velvet-covered buttons set
close together on the edges of thc
skirt, at thc openings, serve to weight
it nicely.
A new skirt, practical in any material, had its closing at one side of
the front; it laps a good deal and buttons to thc knees, while below, it falls
free. There is but one scam iu this
skirt—that in thc middle of thc back,
and it fits easily over thc figure.
The openwork, known as English
embroidery, is seen on many of thc
new materials. In conjunction with
plain materials, it promises to gain a
great vogue for the coming season.
A new gown of fine white crinkled
crepe has the upper of its double
skirts finished with a wide border of
it done on the material. Over the
low-necked and short-sleeve dcorsagc
of the crepe a square piece of the
embroidery mounts, back and front,
and is held over the shoulders by
crepe-covered cords. A band of
shirred white silk , framed in two
lines of cords, belts it at a high,
round waistline.
*   *   *
The little accessories of a woman's
gowning, hats, scarfs, veils, shoulder
capes, muffs made of satin, chiffon
and lace, or of material matching thc
gown, seem of more importance at
this moment than the gowns themselves.

Editorial Notes

,*
1 i
POWER OF VETO
The City Barrister has endorsed the
opinion of the City Solicitor that the
Mayor possesses a power of veto, which
he has a legal right to exercise* even against
a vote of the majority of the Council. It
is hardly possible that both these gentlemen can be wrong in their interpretation
of the law, in which case there cannot be
a question that once more "the law is an
ass," as the world was very positively informed some three hundred and fifty years
ago. That such a power should be exercised is, to say the least of it, an anachronism. If the majority is not permitted to
rule under the provisions of thc Municipal
Clauses Act, then the sooner the Act is
amended the better. The power of veto is
one which few men would take the responsibility of exercising when such action
would place them in opposition to the majority in any properly constituted authority. But the citizens of Victoria need not
think that Mayor Morley will be deterred
by any considerations of custom or delicacy in exacting his "pound of flesh." If
he possesses the power of veto he will exercise it whenever by so doing he can further his own personal wishes. That he
does so at the, expense of the rate-payers
will not cause him to lose any sleep, and
the only way in whicii the will of the
Council can be permitted to prevail is by
depriving the Mayor of the possession of
an arbitrary power which he is unfitted to
exercise, and witli which men of his temperament should never be entrusted.
RECIPROCITY
The Victoria Times seems to tliink that
because Canadian securities continue to
stand well, and because immigrants from
the States keep pouring in, that therefore
Reciprocity must be a good thing. This
is a very dangerous ' non sequitur" and if
there is any force in the argument it
means tliat the splendid natural resources
and the financial conditions of Canada did
not in themselves furnish sufficient attraction to would-be settlers. Xo anti-Reciprocity speaker or writer has attempted to
belittle the growing importance of Canada
as a field for exploitation and investment,
and no one has for one moment imagined
that the passage of the Reciprocity Agreement would appreciably lessen immigration. Immigrants do not bother themselves with questions of policy; least of all
will American immigrants be disposed to
cavil about* a piece of legislation which
was promoted by their own statesmen. The
objection to Reciprocity rests on far
broader grounds. It is not the immediate
but the ultimate tendency that, is feared,
and to this danger the eyes of the Canadian people are gradually being opened.
The AVeek regards Reciprocity with the
States as the pebble flung into the stream,
around which slender forces of resistance
will slowly but* surely gather until the
stream mav either be divided or diverted.
SAYING NOTHING AND
SAWING WOOD
There is one man who takes little stock
in tlie 'Mayoral veto, and that num is busy
"sawing wood" and saying nothing. Mr.
C. IT. Top]), having received instruction0
to commence the survey of the Sooke watershed has put a dozen men to work, and,
to use an expressive Western phrase, is
"rushing the survey to completion." lie
holds that lie hns been legally engaged and
illegally dismissed, and is prepared to lake
a chance. As Mr. Topp is acting upon eminent advice if i? probable that 1,0 is right,
as it. is not, the light to veto which is in
question in thi-*--, instance, but the manner
i,i which it w.is i-v>ivi.-,i*d. The i.-i! -;uy-
fis will be dw|jnsc'.! to forgive Mt* Ton])
lor many thiiy,--, •■"■iJuclmg his contumacious treatment of i\.* Thief Magistrate's
authority, if he Mni Los the work as quickly as possible.
WELCOME NEWS
The news that Messrs Gault Brothers
of Winnipeg propose to open a large dry-
goods house on Yates Street Avill be welcome indeed to the Victoria shoppers who
for many years have been at the tender
mercy of one big firm. The smaller
houses on Yates Street have done their
best to meet popular requirements, and in
their respective lines have well deserved
the success which they have achieved, but
in the class of business transacted by a
large departmental store Victorians have
been sadly handicapped. They have been
forced to pay exorbitant prices, and to put
up with out of date material, purchased
at bankruptcy sales. The news that other
big companies contemplated building in
Victoria was gladly welcomed, but so far
nothing has materialised. There was a
Hudson's Bay project and a Timothy Eaton project. They appear, however, to have
petered out. Now that Gault Bros, have
purchased a site it seems likely that they
really mean business. They cannot come
too soon, and their advent will undoubtedly mean the introduction of higher class
goods of greater variety, and a reduction
in prices which should range from 25 to
30 per cent.
AMERICAN NEWS
The Week would like to know why the
local press is not able to collect more news
of interest to British subjects, and why it
continues to fill up its columns with assaults, murders and domestic bickerings
in out of the way American villages, supplemented by historical extracts from the
English newspapers and magazines. The
former are not of the slightest importance
or interest to anyone living ten miles away
from the place where they occur. The
latter are weeks, and sometimes months,
old before they come under the dominion
of the scissors and the paste-pot. Just to
illustrate this point, if anyone will take
the trouble to turn to the front page of
last Sunday's Colonist he will find five
columns of so-called telegraphic news,
about 100 inches, dealing with unimportant American and uninteresting European items. This is no exception to the
rule, and the inside of the paper follows
the lead. The only thing' that can be said in
favour of the local Press is that it does deal
fairly well with local items, and probably this is its most important duty, but
if it is to give outside news as well, surely its subscribers might be permitted to
learn something of what is transpiring in
their own Empire. It should be possible
to give them something of greater interest
than the two columns to which we were
treated on "new legislation for champagne manufacturers," introduced into the
French Chamber, and a column and a half
about "Old ceremonial at the Spanish
court." This dearth of Britisli news is the
most marked feature of Victoria journalism. Lest it should be thought that The
Weew is exaggerating it ventures to summarize the whole of the items on the front
page of the Colonist last Sunday and the
space allotted to them, as follows:—
Fighting at El Paso, Tex., 15 inches;
Crazed by Cocaine at Tacoma, an inch and
a half; Shooting a Negro at Knoxsville,
Tenn., one and a half; Fighting in Honduras, five and a half; Earthquake Shock
at San .lose and F. S. Cruiser at Tanipico,
one inch; Explosion at Pleasant Prairie,
Wis., seven inches; Vengeance of Cam-
morists at Viterro, 14 inches; Troops at
San Diego, seven and a half; Nome Left
Phoneless, one and a half; Landslide at
Duluth, Minn., seven and a half; President Taft Golfing at Augusta, Ga., seven
inches; Disturbance at Mexico City, 18
inches; British Empire news, nil.
THE LAW'S DELAYS
Whilst there will be general regret at
the necessity for administering capital
punishment, that regret will be intensified
by thc regrettable delay that has occurred
in a local ease. Our pride has received a
severe shock at the result of the Alien
trial, which called for prompt action, but
by an unfortunate set of circumstances
there has been delay at every stage of tlie
proceedings; the last delay having furnished thc occasion for some very severe stric
tures by the learned judge upon the legal
conduct of the case. Nothing more regrettable could occur than that there
should be the slightest suspicion of the introduction of American methods into Canadian courts. A fair trial, with every
chance for the accused, including the benefit of the doubt, is what British people
stand for and demand. The Allen case
hardly complies with these requirements
and the public interest demands that every
care shall be taken to prevent repetition.
CAPTIOUS CRITICISM
Premier McBride's address at the Annual Meeting of the Vancouver Island Development League has been very unfairly
criticised by the Victoria Times, which
says that "it showed very clearly that, the
people of the Province can expect no help
from him in the matter of opening up the
country beyond the every day duty of
building roads." In passing, it may be remarked that such a statement is obviously
untrue, and the suggestion which it. contains unfair. It ignores tbe fact that the
Government is spending during the current financial year nearly $0,000,000 on
public works. If the building of schools,
court-houses, and bridges, and the policing and protecting of new districts do not
constitute any contribution to the "opening up of the country," then it would be
interesting to know under what heading
this expenditure should be classified. Tho
principal complaint of the Times in this
connection is that the Premier refuses to
assist in clearing up the logged-off lands,
and in the installation of rural telephones.
To the latter proposal Mr. McBride gave
a. perfect answer when lie pointed out that
as a matter of policy he was opposed to
the Provincial ownership of Telephone
Systems, believing that, such matters could
best be dealt, with by the Federal Government. That the authorities at Ottawa share
this view is very well evidenced by the
fact that they have already installed an extensive system in all the Provinces, and in
British Columbia have linked up the
principal islands in the Straits of Georgia.
Just why the local Government should
ste]) out of its Avay to undertake work
which is being well. carried on by the
Federal Government upon broad national
lines is not very apparent. As to the other
matter, that of the clearing of the logged-
off lands, the answer is patent; namely,
that such a work would require the investment of a sum of money which would
deplete the Provincial Treasury, and
which the Government would not be justified in spending. There is no evidence
that settlement has been retarded by the
failure to clear these lands, and while
there are so many million acres of virgin
land available for pre-emption and purchase, it is out of the question to impose such
a heavy financial burden upon the local
Government. The complaint of the Times
ignores the fact that, generally speaking,
timber land is not the best agricultural
land, and that most of it is absolutely unfitted for farming purposes, and can only
be utilised for reforestation. ' If the
Times is to make any converts and to increase the representation of its party in
the Provincial Legislature, it will havc to
discover some more vulnerable point on
which to attack the Government. So far,
the over-whelming verdict, has been that
the affairs of the Province are well managed, and that the managers retain the confidence of thc electorate.
THEATRICAL POSTERS
Tlio attention of the Police Commissioners is respectfully directed to the fact, that
during the last few months many objectionable theatrical posters have decorated
the hoardings in our public streets. This
is a violation of the law which should nol
be permitted, and in any event it is inimical to public morals. Since it is an evil
which can be remedied so easily there is
no excuse for its continuance, but* The
Week cannot, learn that any steps have
been taken in the matter. In Eastern
cities, including Montreal, pictorial posters are prohibited, and advertising is confined to lettering. The explanation of the
nuisance in Victoria is that we are almost
entirely dependent, on American companies
who naturally exploit American "paper.l
Tlieir posters are on a par with the artist!
attainments of their patrons on the othel
side of the line and it is about time thq
Victoria decided that some of the thing
tolerated there are not quite good enougl
for a self-respecting Canadian communitj
A DESIRABLE VETO
It would be an excellent thing if th
Minister responsible   for   control   of tt
Parliament Buildings could see his way '
establish a rule that smoking is not allo\l
ed in the  public offices  during busine.1
hours.    In  making this suggestion  Til
Week has no desire to curtail the person,!
enjoyment of any of the gentlemen enl
ployed in the Civil Service, but, as they aiT
gentlemen, they may safely be trusted
fall in line  with  any  suggestion  whid
which would tend to raise the tone of tl|
Service.   Smoking in public offices duriii
business hours should be a monopoly
the great Republic to the South, being oil
of the characteristic features of a free an
enlightened country.    Many Civil Ser]
ants in Victoria have relatives in the Civ
Service in the Old Country who would dl
of shock if they knew that such a custoi
prevailed here.     Now  that  the   Capitl
City is emerging from its swaddling band
and taking rank with the most progressi1!
cities in the Dominion, Government off
cials could well afford to make this littl
sacrifice in th'e  interest of  official  goq
manners.
UNDERGROUND BAKE-HOUSES
There has been quite a little fuss mail
during  the  present  week  about   uridef
ground   bake-houses,   and   several   we|
known Victoria bakers have risen in the
indignation to demand that their places *
business should be inspected.    The Wei
has no knowledge o fthe fact, if it bel
fact,  tliat there are underground  bak
houses, but it is sadly aware of one def-d
to which the Labour Delegates might wa
direct their attention, and that is the tl
frequent use of   'stale" eggs in makiil
cake.   Now that eggs are "dated" it ongl
to be possible to prevent this, and TJ
Week suggests that some of the confectio|
ers would spend their time much better
sorting tho eggs they use than in writii|
letters to the newspapers.
THE CHINESE COMMISSION
Popular interest in the Chinese Imnj
gration Commission seems to have dwinl
led, and no doubt this is due to the fal
that the local press seems to be quite obliT
ious of the fact that, such a Commissi^
is sitting. On Thursday the Times co
taincd a brief local to the effect that tl
Hon. William Templeman was in Vi
toria for the purpose of giving evideq
before the Commission, but, where tl
Commission is sitting and what it is doif
is a matter in respect, of which the publ
is kept in the dark; and nothing is said j
to whether the Hon. AVilliam Templemi
has given his evidence, and, if so, wh[
its purport was. Altogether the local ne^
service seems to bo on the rocks.
CONCERNING TITLES
There can be no possible objection
the Colonist giving a free course of cell
cation on the subject of titles, assumiil
always that its readers are sufficiently il
terested to appreciate its self-denying Ial
ours.   Of course it will occur to some po
pie that the subject is hardly of sufficiel
importance  to  monopolise  the  editor.!
columns,   and   that   its   proper   milif
would be the Children's Page iu the Su|
day Supplement, but rather than that
important a matter should not be thel
oughly ventilated the subscribers might
willing to forego an occasional column
editorial on live topics.
CORONATION HONOURS
The AVeek hears on very high authorij
that there is no doubt about the confe
ring of titles upon the Provincial Prei|
icrs who attend the Coronation, and in
ficial quarters it is stated that, in each i|
stance the honour to be conferred will
a baronetage.
