Vol. XI, No. 2--Eleventh Year
Victoria, B.C., Canada, Feb. 22, 1913
5c. a copy, $2.00 a year
IT is generally admitted that tlie mass meeting in the Drill Hall
on Tuesday night under tho auspices of the Over-Sens Club
was the largest ever held in the City of Victoria.   There were
between two and three thousand people present.     Many hands had
made light work of converting the spacious hall into an auditorium,
and in spite of its defective acoustic properties the arrangements were
so good that the Hon. G. E. Foster, the orator of the evening, was
distinctly heard by every person present.  And what they heard will
linger in their memories for many a long year, for it was a masterly,
statesmanlike address on the subject of "Canada within the Empire."
It was distinctly non-political and only at one point touched on a controversial subject when reference was made to the possible effect of
tho Eeciprocity Treaty in 1911, heading in the direction of annexation and absorption.   As the address will be published verbatim in
the next issue of The Week it is only necessary to say that Mr. Foster
traced the growth of national sentiment in Canada from Confederation to date, showing how at various stages the Dominion bad declared for independence in commercial, in industrial and latterly in
political life; and bow thus   developing into a nation within the
Empire it had come in these latter days to a point'where it was
assuming Imperial rank and taking part  in  the  discussion  and
settlement of Imperial affairs. The scheme of the address was one of
evolution, culminating fitly in the mission on which Mr. Foster has
gone to the Antipodes.   The speaker proved.himself to be, as ever,
cogent in reasoning, incisive in analysis, and brilliant in diction. He
| held his hearers from the first sentence, and, vast though it was, not
a sound disturbed the unchecked flow of language except, when enthu-
I siasm burst its bounds and the audience indulged in hearty applause.
No part of Mr. Foster's address was moro highly appreciated than
[ that in which he touched upon' the subject of Naval Defence.   Tie
handled this delicately and without offending the susceptibilities of
tho hundreds of Liberals who were present.     He declared tliat the.
people of Canada had made up their minds that the time for action
had come; he urged that the action proposed by Mr. Borden was well
considered and timely, and that it was unfair to criticize it, as some
I had done, as if it were tho whole Naval policy of the country. He
regarded it as a first instalment to be followed by a well digested
scheme which would satisfy the aspirations of the people, and meet
J the specific demands of those who had not seen their way to approve
of the present policy.   The plea for a suspended judgment until the
whole policy is laid before the electorate was  a reasonable one, and
unless The Week is greatly mistaken the cogent arguments of Mr.
I Foster on this point will materially influence tho minds of those who
heard them. Reference to what is really an historic meeting would be
I incomplete without an emphasis upon its splendid representative
I character.   In the audience and on the platform were many of the
Heading citizens of Victoria irrespective of party, and none were
Imore hearty in their endorsation of the vote of thanks to Mr. Foster
Imoved by Sir Richard McBride and seconded by the Hon. Col. Prior,
Ithan those who are usually found ranged in opposition to the party
lof which he is sueh an able representative.   The Over-Seas Club is
Ito be congratulated on having entertained one of tho greatest orators
lin the Empire; on having secured from him an address so entirely
lin keeping with its policy ancl propaganda, and on having success-
Ifnlly managed a gathering so huge that success was only possible by
lthe co-operation of many good friends to whom The Week is author-
I ized to tender the heartiest thanks of the Club.
Not In Public Interest
PREMIER McBride conferred a signal honour upon thc delegation of Suffragettes who interviewed the Government last week,
I by committing his official reply to writing. No doubt this
Idecision was prompted by a profound knowledge of the complexity
lof the feminine mind, and its proneness to confuse tho meaning of tlio
IKing's English in tbe form of the spoken word. The statement
Imade on the floor of the House on Wednesday is .simply that the
iGovemment is still of the view which it has consistently adhered to
Ifor ten years, that it would not be "in the public interest" to bring
Idown a bill embodying the principle of woman's suffrage. The Suf-
Ifragettes do not love The AVeek, and one of them (only one) has
Icancelled her subscription because it has told the truth fearlessly on
|.'i matter of public concern. They may, therefore, not appreciate its
comment upon the decision of the Government, which is that they
ought to be very thankful that it has intervened to save them from
lthe turmoil and strife of political life by refusing to give them what
Ithey ask for. Before now children have cried for the moon; not
■because tbey really wanted it, or would have known what to do with
lit if they had it, but simply because they wanted something and did
not know what it was—and the moon looked just as appealing as
lanything else. It is even so with woman's suffrage; those who have
lit do not use it, and thoso who are clamouring for it would be no more
(satisfied, if it were granted, than they are today. They would simply
Ibegin to howl for something else. The ground on which the Govern-
Inient bases its refusal are unanswerable; "it is not in the public
linterest," and it is the business of the Government to set the public
linterest before anything. A word of advice, if it bo not too bold a
Itbing to offer advice to Suffragettes: "If you would secure any
•measure of public confidence in the 'bona fides' of your propaganda,
land any measure of support from a sane Government, you should
Ifirst purge your ranks of 'militants' who openly advocated violence in
JEngland and as far as is known have not undergone a 'change of
■ heart' since cominc to British Columbia."
British Columbia Fruit
AMONG the many deputations which waited on the Hon.
George E. Foster, during his all too brief visit to Victoria,
by no means the least important was that whicli interviewed
him on the subject of the fruit trade of the Province. The deputation
was an influential one, consisting of the Hon. Price Ellison, Minister
of Finance ancl Agriculture; Mr. W. E. Scott, Deputy Minister, and
Mr. Ricardo, manager of the celebrated Coldstream ranch. These
gentlemen presented a written statement, Showing among other
things that there is now invested in the fruit-growing industry of
the Province no less a sum than $25,000,000. The industry is
developing and thriving, but it suffers st all times, ancl last season
received a 'solar plexus" blow from the unfair competition of American fruit. This fruit is graded differently from the Canadian, and
its label "Choice" while sounding very attractive is really only equal
to our No. 3. The fruit is neither packed nor marked as required
by the Canadian laws, but is shipped in enormous quantities on "on-
signment. One clay last Fall the almost incredible quantity of 117
ear-loads reached Calgary over the Soo line from the States for distribution in the Canadian West; most of it was sold hy auction at
less than it cost the growers to produce, and at figures whicii made
the  Prairie  market  an impossibility for Britisli Columbia fruit.
The newly appointed pastor of the First Presbyterian Church,
Victoria, B. 0.
This is a distinct and conspicuous violation of tho anti-dumping
principle which has been endorsed by tbe trade policy of the
Dominion. Of course, Mr Foster promised that the matter should
receive attention and that he would communicate with Ottawa before
leaving. As he will bc away for several months, tbe Hon. Martin
Burrell has been asked to give liis most careful consideration to the
representations of the deputation, ancl there is no doubt that hc
will do so.
Principal Wesbrook
PUBLIC curiosity has been allayed by the announcement made
on tbe floor of the House last Monday by Dr. Young that Dr.
Frank Fairchild Wesbrook has been appointed Principal of the
British Columbia University. As Dr. Wesbrook comes here direct
from the University of Minnesota and as the daily press did not
feature his Canadian and Britisli experience, a false impression was
created that the1 Minister had fallen into the error of selecting an
American professor, a choice whicii would have been deeply resented
by the people of Britisli Columbia. Fortunately, Ibis is not a fact.
Dr. Wesbrook has only been at Minnesota sixteen years, during
which time he has specialized in the medical faculty. Previous to
that bis experience was cosmopolitan and almost world-wide. ITo
was born in Brant County, Ontario, in ISfiS, and received bis early
education in the public schools of London, Ontario, and Winnipeg,
of whicli city his father was Mayor in the early 'eighties. Subsequently he passed on to Manitoba College and thenee to McGill
whore he took a course in medicine. Later, always specializing in
pathological studies, be took a post-graduate course in Ibe Medical
School of Montreal. Tn search of wider experience be crossed the
Atlantic and spent three years in the laboratories of Cambridge
University. He passed from Cambridge to St. Bartholomew's
Hospital, London, and from there to the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin,
where he practised as resident physician. Before returning to tbis
side of the water he look a course in pathology and physiology al
the University of Marburg, in Germany,   From tlie above il will be
seen that Dr. Wesbrook has travelled far and been in touch with the
best university influences and authorities, and while he has always
specialized in his own science of medicine, his numerous titles show
that he is an all-round scholar. It was recognized by the Government that one of the most essential features to be sought in the
Principal of the University is organizing ability, and in this direction Dr. Wesbrook is said to excel. He is a man barely yet in the
prime of life, robust, affable and energetic, and while there will be
many who will regret that it was not possible to find a professor
actively engaged in work at a Canadian or British University, who
would satisfy the requirements of the .position, everyone will be
willing to give Dr. Wesbrook a fair chance and to estimate the value
of his services by the result.
Canadian Lawn Tennis
THE daily press has made the bare announcement that Canada
has formally entered for the Davis Cup Competition, which
takes place in England during the coming season. Thus for
the first time the Dominion lines up, as she has a right to do, with the
States, with Australia and with the Old Country in competing for
what is perhaps the most important trophy of the game. While the
official entry was made by Mr. W. F. Summerhayes, of Toronto, the
Secretary of the Canadian Lawn Tennis Association, it was first
suggested by two Victorians, Capt. Foulkes, a Canadian ex-champion,
and Mr. R. B. Powell. The latter gentleman is one of the most
brilliant players whom Victorian tennis has produced. Today he has
a wordl-wide reputation, ancl had the honor of competing in the'
Olympic games in 1911. Nedless to say our own local champion,
Mr. Schwengers, is also of the highest rank, and if it is at all possible
for Mr. Powell and Mr. Schwengers to form a Canadian team, the
Dominion will be well represented. As far as it is possible to judge
on the form of last season, none of the Eastern Canadian players
would appear to be in the same class as the men from the West; indeed, this opinion is confirmed by a letter recently addressed to Capt.
Foulkes by Mr. Summerhayes, who has already sent forward Mr.
Powell's name to the English Committee at the request of the President of the Association.
A Prosperous eompany
ELSEWHERE in the current issue will be found the official
report of the annual meeting of the British Columbia Life
Insurance Company, of which Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.L.A.,
has just been elected President, in succession to Mr. Jonathan Rogers,
of Vancouver. The company has special claims on British Columbia
because it is entirely a local organization, with local directors and
managers. The balance sheet for the year shows that a large and
profitable business has been transacted, the amount written being
$1,800,302. In moving the adoption of the report, Mr. Shatford
stated that the assets of the Company were sound in every respect,
and that there could be no doubt as to its ultimate success. He said
that the experience of the last, two years had shown that the people
of th West were loyal to Western institutions, when those institutions
were "bona fide." The balance sheet shows a capital stock paid up of
$97,497; a surplus, excluding capital, of $30,999, and a balance to
credit of $41,803. It is extremely gratifying to be able to chronicle
the success and prospects of a Western insurance company which
cannot fail to gain ground year by year under the control of such a
strong board of directors as that of the Britisli Columbia Insurance
The Liquor Laws
FOR two years Britisli Columbia has been able to boast of the
best liquor laws of any Province in the Dominion. At that
lime great pressure was brought to bear on the Attorney-
General to introduce a Local Option measure into tho House.
Instead of that a plebiscite was taken whicli fell short of the necessary majority. The Government did not favor local option, believing
that the new law whicli Mr. Bowser was introducing would be far
more effective in minimizing the evils of the drink traffic and would
be more generally acceptable to Ihe electorate. Tho result has proved
tlio wisdom of this view. A strict, enforcement of the law has nearly
wiped out the grosser evils complained of, and has greatly reduced
drunkenness. Tlie most signal successes have been scored in connection with the 'interdict," the supplying of liquor to drunkards and
minors, and the illegal sale of liquor, especially in thc form commonly known as "boot-legging." Now, in pursuance of his earlier
promise, the Attorney-General ia introducing new legislation, which
will -ntill further strengthen lhe bands of those whose business it is
In control the traffic. Ono of the most important features of the
new Act is that there will be a uniform hour of closing throughout
the Province. The anomaly of varying hours in different localities,
some of them adjacent, will be done away with, and hereafter eleven
o'elock will be the universal hour of closing instead of midnight.'
Another important amendment is a prohibition against selling liquor
to nny person who is apparently under Ibe influence nf previous
libations, or to any dipsomaniac, or any person who lias acquired
the reputation of being a drunkard or is openly and notoriously of
drunken habits; or any person who openly or notoriously wastes liis
money in drinking liquor and in riotous living to the detriment; of
those dependent upon him, any vagrant or tramp, or any chauffeur
as defined in the Vehicles Act. All this is excellent and tends not
only to the betterment of the individual but to the protection of the Page Two

public. There arc many other restrictions of a minor character, but
perhaps one of the most important is a provision which states that
no "writ of certiorari" shall be issued for the purpose of quashing
any conviction obtained under the provisions of Hie Aet, unless the
party applying therefore shall produce to the judge an affidavit
(rendering him liable to prosecution for perjury if foresworn) that
he did not by himself or any other person with his knowledge and
consent commit tlie offence for whicii he was convicted. Tliere have
been too mam* cases in which convictions havc been quashed, and the
public will heartily endorse this new proposal which should have the
effect of rendering conviction less liable to reversal on appeal. On
the whole the Act may be described as far-seeing, thorough, practical
and humane; it is consistent with the attitude whicli the Attorney-
General has always assumed on this important question, and it should
be as satisfactory to the temperance people as to the trade. Tt certainly advances the propaganda of the former and materially improves the position of the latter.
Judge Lampman's Commission
THE Government has acted wisely in appointing a Commissioner of the experience and ability of His Honour Judge
Lampman, to investigate the School Board scandal at Nelson.
For several years rival factions have produced a condition of affairs
whicli has made the meetings of the Board resemble nothing so much
as pandemonium. Neither side would yield; the result has been not,
only a public scandal, but recently a line of action in connection with
the dismissal of a Principal which is calculated to bring the Educational Department into discredit. This is undoubtedly the last
straw. The Government was obliged to move in the matter; it could
not have acted more wisely than in appointing Judge Lampman,
who can be trusted to get to the root of the evil and to make a pronouncement which cannot fail to lead to determined action by the
Department. As usual, wherever trouble is brewing, it is a case of
"cherchez la fonime."
Reduce Canadian Tariffs
IT is far from tho intention of The Week to suggest that the Borden
Government should forthwith enter upon a policy of reducing tlie
tariffs, indiscriminately, on competitive manufactures and other
products, simply because their predecessors, with the usual irrational
impetuosity of new converts, debased the doctrines of Macdonald.
and prostituted them to purposes which that beneficent light of
Canada's industrial life never intended. But it is well to remind the
Leaders of the Government today that many of the conditions whicli
mado the national policy essential in tho time of Macdonald, have
entirely changed in tlieir complexion and their general character, or
else have been reduced in the poignancy with which they once retarded the industrial development of the Dominion. Our population
has more than doubled since Macdonald's regime, and many of our
industries have grown with correspond ing strength; but the Tariffs
whicii were imposed in the eighties and early nineties for not only
protective but for fostering purposes, have been increased almost
without an exception, at the several revisions which they underwent
in the hands of Sir Wiiirid Laurier and his Government. That.
course of conduct was inevitable in order to impart a plausible sincerity, at least, to the neophytes who almost up to the very hour of
recanting their own theories and adopting the policy of Macdonald,
had denounced and reprobated its principles in every species of invective nnd declamation. Laurier had likened Protection to the old
slavery system, and the people who tolerated it as dupes; while Cartwright declared that Protection in any form was "legalized robbery."
The sudden revulsion from this could only find a condiment in excess
and extravagance. The revisions of the Tariff under Laurier were
all on the ascending scale, and made with the object of reducing imports to a minimum. It is a notorious fact that the great revisions
of 190B-7 were instigated by, and were solely in the interests of thc
manufacturer. The consumer never entered into the consideration
of the once ardent advocates of the rights of the masses, except perhaps the farmer who secured a slight reduction of the import duties
on agricultural implements from the United States. Not only excessive protection but the most extravagant of bounty-largesses wero
given to the manufacturer and producer, who in return replenished
the campaign funds. The Week now suggests that the time is
opportune for a complete investigation of the conditions which the
Government of Mr. Borden have found; that there are many industries which would be strengthened by a remission or reduction of
duties; and that there are several revokable or discontinuablc
bounties which should he effaced from the annual financial statement. Moreover that the bounty system, except in very special cases,
should be abandoned. The resources of lhe country are so vast, and
the potentials of production so accessible, that industries grow witli
enormous rapidity from tlieir infantile state to such an advanced
stage cd' maturity thai all the protection they require is protection
against unfair i petition, ll is at this juncture that tho interests
of tlie consumer and the country become dominant, nnd the fostering
cari! of the Government gradually recedes from view; and there are
many possible curtailments of the tariff which would operate beneficially to the producer, the consumer and the country,
AN imperial Hying squadron.
fln Imperial Plying Squadron
TIIE construction of national navies will certainly be a distinctive part of the formative features of the Empire; and it
is remarkable how quickly those features are moulding llieni-
selvcs into unity. A harmony of outline is even now evident; and all
that seems to lie necessary is for the latent powers of each national
entity nf tin- Empire to be brought into activity. The suggestion is
now before ns Ihal with tho fleet-units in Ihe Nortli Pacific ami in
the Australasian Seas, there should concurrently bo established an
Imperial Flying Squadron, which would not only keep those units
in closer touch, but be a potent factor in aiding their evolution into
national navies. The suggestion is one whicii commends itself to
those who realize the aim and object of fleet-units. They are uo
moro than the preludes or precursors of the scheme of national navies
built and manned by each of the Empire nations. A Hying squadron
passing from ocean to ocean around the world-wide orbit of the
Empire, and not only visiting the fleet-units and the national navies.
but remaining with them for more or less prolonged periods, would
be a cohesive force in itself; but its beneficial effects would extend in
many other directions. It would be the means of solving to a large
extent the problem of manning the national navies with the men of
the nations to whonj they belonged. It would be a centripetal force,
which in the magnificence of its equipment and its potentials, would
bo irresistible; while its ambulatory movements would be imposing,
attractive and highly instructive. Many a recruit for the home
navy would thus be won for the service; and so far as the North
Pacific unit is concerned it would soon be manned by Canada's sons.
The Week is glad to lend its support to a proposal so completely in
harmony with the fleet-unit and national policy programme whieh
it has consistently advocated.
Vilification of Public Men
RARELY has an abler or more timely leiter been written to the
press than that whicli appeared in a recent issue of the Colonist
from the pon of our respected townsman, Mr. Oscar Bass. It
was a brilliant piece of composition, and rings true iu every sentence.
His protest against the vilification of such honoured public men as
Sir AVilfrid Laurier and Mr. K. L. Borden will be re-echoed by
every fair-minded man. There is no more regrettable feature in
Canadian public life than the proneness to belittle an opposition
leader. This is despicable and revolting; it discredits Canadian
journalism; it is resented by public opinion and in one conspicuous
instance at least has brought about the practical annihilation of a
political party and the relegation to private life of a very respectable and well-meaning old gentleman, who secured universal sympathy when he frankly acknowledged that lie was "no politician."
Dumas (liis). It would be going n Ions
wny lo say that no purely French
comedy could be perfectly satisfactory
to nn English audience, but it is not
going a hil too fnr to sny Hint no English company, even with so capable a
star ns Mr. Waller nl its head, could
give nn entirely satisfactory delineation. The comedies of French playwrights arc like the wines of thai delightful country: they contain the
sparkle of its sunshine nnd lhe bouquet of its atmosphere. These nre
hist in the piny if it is not interpreted
by Iho intelligence, the intuition and
the "elan" of the race whose most
intimate traits it pictures. French
plots nre admirable beeatise so ingenious and intricate. Thc British stage
lins chronicled mnny of its successes
with classical French plnys, but it has
never yet been able, with n conipuny
of English actors, to dislil the pure
aromn and interpret thc lightest
nuances of an ideal French comedy.
And this is as true of Mr. Waller's
compiiny and "A Marriage of Convenience" ns of mnny of its predecessors on Ihe same lines. The presentation is enjoyable; it is amusing; it is
even comic, which perhaps it should
not be, but the atmosphere even so
faultily reproduced is strange lo nn
English audience, nnd forces one to
regard it ns n farce rather than as a
humorous illustration of French life

A Special
well-known theatrical entrepreneur, hns recently waxed wroth in tho
columns of the New York Times tit
what lie regarded ns unjust criticism
of a popular play. His loiter was
sent to mc, because exception was
I nken to my own adverse remarks
about "Thc Return of Peter Grimm,"
which appeared in these columns a
few weeks ago. Jly renders will remember tliat I found no fault with
lhe work of Mr. Wnriichl and his
company, but Ihe criticism was directed solely towards the unsiiilnhilitv
of the play for presentation upon the
singe. Mr. Savage look lhe ground
always appropriated by producers of
plays wliieh nre financially successful,
viz., that packed bouses and uot the
personal opinions of more or less
blase, disgruntled or incompetent
critics should hc accepted as I lie
standard of opinion. Of course, this
is not lhe place to enter into a lengthy
argument on sucli a subject, and f
only cite thc incident because il has a
hearing on Lewis Waller and "A Marriage of Convenience."
Mr. Robertson tells ine Hint the
compnny lias played lo packed houses
everywhere, nnd Ihat in Vancouver
during a full week's engagement there
was nol a vacant scat at the lirst
night. On lhe strength of Ihis Mr.
Savage presumably would demand
the cachet of endorsation for Mr.
Waller as one of the greatest netors
of tlie age and for "A Marriage of
Convenience" ns one of the greatest
plays. And yet, in all sober seriousness, nud in the honest judgment of
crilics neither disgruntled nor blase,
they would bc wrong.
"A Marriage of Convenience" is n
typically French comedy by Alexander
life and character of a bygone age
which can only be correctly described
as a burlesque.
For the sake of Mr. Waller, who is
0 llrsl-class actor, and in the interest
of his splendid support, I can only
hope that we may some dny see them
iu a Shakespearean play, or at nny
into in some English play worthy of
Iheir powers. For it, I may he permitted a Western expression as to
"A Marriage of Convenience," there
is "nothing to it," except the fun,
nnd Mr. Waller and his company are
loo big to be fairly represented by
Now, a word as lo their work. In
Mi*. Waller I was disappointed. When
1 last heard him many years ago, hc
was doing good work ill Shakespeare
and while wilh ability and training,
his slug'.' knowledge and splendid elocution, he could uol I'nil to score in
any play, il must be admitted Ihal he
is entirely unsuiled for (he part of
lhe Comic de Candalc. Hc was loo
heavy, loo histrionic, nud, if 1 may
bc pardoned for saying il, n Utile loo
self-conscious. His movements were
si iited, nnd nl limes suggested Iho
cumbersome. The role, lo hc effective,
should hc iu the hands of n much
younger man, a veritable "jeune premier," especially wilh such a dainty
Comtesse as Miss Tilheradge.
1 tliink Ihe truth of Ihis criticism
was demonstrated by Jir. Waller himself when iu response to nn enthusiastic recall he recited those never-to-
be-forgotten lines from Henry V. Thut
wns bewis Waller; Ihe Lewis Waller
of tradition and I raining, instend of
lhe mincing French gallant who hnd
si rutted through four nets of "A Marriage of Convenience."
Miss Tilheradge was perfect in her
part: enchanting, playful, bewildering,
yet suggest ing in a thousand inimitable little touches the womanliness
which she personified. Her work and
that of Mr. Reginald Dane, as the
Chevalier de Valclos, came nearer to
the French ideal and nearer to the
true spirit of Dumas' play than that
of any other members of the company.
But the acting honours were really
curried olf hy Miss Annie Hughes,
whose elocution, verve and acting revealed her great powers and showed
how invaluable she would be in a
really strong part.
Dear old Charles Dodsworth, whom
1 llrsl saw al Ihe Lyceum nearly forty
years ago, gave a clever impersonation of Jasmin and if Edward N.
Ryder suggested a retired Indian officer rather thnn n French general, one
could forget il in his clear enunciation
and finished execution.
"A Marriage of Convenience" wns

Unit the only justification for criticizing it adversely is that with a
splendid English company wilh Lewis
Waller at the head, lhe public has a
right lo lie critical and a right lo expect something more worthy of their
powers than n dramatic "souffle."

TUK fourth anuuiil meeting of the

Company wns held at the head ofllce of the company. Vancouver, B.C.,
on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the hour of
3 o'clock in the afternoon, at which a
large number of shareholders were
The president, Mr. Jonathan Rogers,
occupied the chair, and the secretary,
Mr. C. F. Stiver, acted as' secretary of
the meeting.
Tho following report of tho directors
was read by the general manager Mr.
Sanford S. Davis:
Directort' Report.
The directors have pleasure in submitting tlie fourth annual report of the
British Columbia Life Assurance Company.
The year 1012 was tho first full year
of the company's operations since our
license  to write business was only is
sued in May, lull. In view of Ihis
fact, youi' directors take n special pride
in presenting the following figures and
statements, whicli evidence nipld growth
on   sound   lines.
The new business applied fur during
1012 was $1,866,01)0, and insurances were
issued (excluding revival), amount ing
to J1.S60.368.
Tho total business iu force now
ii mounts to $2,269,870, an increase of
$1,278,676 over last year. We arc glad
to report that thc business issued in
1011 was renewed In 1012 in a very
satisfactory manner. This is a proof
that our policyholders believe thoroughly in the future of tlie company.
The rapid progress indicated by the
above figures was accomplished, we believe, by the best possible conditions, affecting the general welfare of the company.      This  will  bo  sufficiently  clenr
from n  consideration  of the  following
1. No death cluiins havc yet been reported, (This facts speaks for lUelf.)
2. A very high Interest yield Ins
been received from the III vestments; the
company's funds are being Invested wilh
absolute security, at over S per cent.
:t. The expenses of management for
the year have been kept down to the
lowest point consistent With thc growth
of the business.
The British Columbia Life Assurance
Company was organi'/cd in the hope
that It would some dny become an important factor in the financial development Of Western Canada. Your directors are confident that this aim will soon
be realized and tliat shareholders nnd
policyholders alike will hnve euvry reason  to be proud  of tlieir compauy.
The provincial government commenced action against the eompany
for the money, and judicial decision
was made in favor of the province.
An appeal wns lodged. The Supreme
Court of Alberta, in April, 1912, dismissed the appeal of the Royal Bank
from (lie decision rendered in the
lower court. An appeal was then
brought in this action to lhe final
tribunal. They are congratulated in
having liad that principle endorsed by
the highest judicial authority in the
world. At the same time, we tliink
the entire incident proves the value
of Canada's right to submit ils eases
to the Privy Council, where political
and local bias have no sway or consideration whatever.—The Monetary

the net reserve, after deducting the allowance for expenses authorized by the Insurance Act, amounted to

The insurance in force amounted  to S2.25O.S70.O0.
February 10,  1913.
As president of your company, l take
great pleasure in moving the adoption
of the directors' report, nnd, in doing
so, would like to draw the special attention of tlie shareholders to the business done, as Indicated in the reports
just read, and, when compared with
other companies' reports, the business
stands very high Indeed.
Our investments give us a return of
over 8 per cent, which is very satisfactory, as we hold first mortgages ou
Improved real estate for all, except that
which we hold in municipal bonds with
the Government.
The high standing of the business
done Is indicated very clearly by three
points, i.e., the rate of premium, which
is $34.90 per $1000, and, I understand. Is
equal, If not better, than any other company In the Dominion; also the low
lapse ratio, and. speaking with Mr.
Ferguson, who has cheeked the actuary
work of our company, he gave expression to the opinion that he considered
it remarkably good showing.
Another point which Is very important—tlie getting of new business. 1
looked over the reports of eight other
Canadian companies, nnd there are only
two out of the eight who secured their
new business as cheaply as your company, and, when we take Into account
that this ls the first full year we have
been doing business, 1 think Mr. Sanford
S. Davis, our general manager, deserves
great credit and the hearty thanks of
the directors and shareholders of this
company for the careful way be has
managed the company's affairs, and I
can assure you that economy has been
tho watchword of Mr. Davis throughout
the   year.
Another point I wish to speak aboul
is the medical referee, Dr. Brydone-
Jack and his staff, who have handled
the medical side of the company's business wonderfully well, as we have had
no death claims so far. which speaks
volumes for the careful and scientific
way our medical staff hns guarded the
interests of the company, which Is a
very important item.
Now, let us turn and glance at the
future, and the possibility of developments. I do not think it was pussible
for any company to start at a moro
opportune time to build up a strong
and prosperous company, when we consider the tremendous growth of this
Western Canada.
The population of the flve Eastern
provinces only showed an increase of
16 per cent at tlie last census, but the
population of the four Western provinces Incroased 187 per cent, while last
year wo find that the Immigration into
Canada (chiefly to the West) was over
three hundred and ninety thousand
(300.000) souls, nnd the Increase in
trade has been on a par with the increase of population. In the Prairie
Provinces we find tliat the wheat crop
increased 130.000.000 bushels in 191 Li
over 1911, and, coming nearer home, In
British Columbia, we find thnt the mineral output of 1912 exceeded 1011 by
eight million dollars.
Willie taking Canada ns a whole we
And most satisfactory development
along all lines, tho railway earnings
are a very safe indication of the country's progress. What do we find there..
We find an Increase of twelve million
dollars for last year over 1011, and the
Increase ln the foreign trade of the Dominion In the same year was over one
hundred and thirty-five million dollars,
so, gentlemen, when we tnke nil these
developments into consideration, and
the new avenue for commerce soon to
be opened for Western Canada through
the Panama Canal, I believe we are on
the eve of one of tlie most phenomena!
development areas that any country has
ever experienced, therefore it Is our
privilege and opportunity, first as Canadians, second as British Columbians, to
build up a strong financial company of
this,   the  first  life assurance  company,
for the Canadian Pacilic Coast, and,
with tlie economical and energetic management, we will have a company whicii
all shall be proud of in a few years.
Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.L.A., in seconding the adoption of the report, spoke as
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen.—
In seconding the motion for the adoption of tho directors' report, whieh I
now do with a great deal of pleasure, I
feel that It is my duty as well as my
privilege to refer briefly to the very
satisfactory financial state of our institution and to the business-like manner in which Its affairs have been conducted during  the past  year.
Insurance to the extent of $1,800,302
was written by our agents last year, an
amount which Is undeniably satisfactory, considering that our company has
been scarcely two yenrs In existence,
and I am able to say with confidence
that no difficulty whatever should be
experienced in writing at the very least
two millions during 1913.
It will be noticed, in scrutinizing the
balance sheet, tliat tho surplus has been
reduced from $05,108.70 to $30,847.20, a
total reduction of $28,321.44. This diminution lias been incurred in obtaining
insurance of which a large percentage
should later prove a source of revenue.
The assets of the eompany are sound
hi every respect ,nnd the debenture Investments and mortgages on real estate
have in every instance been well placed.
A glance at the disbursements will show
that a sum of $41,98248 was paid to
agents and others In securing business.
I would like to remark that the percentage of disbursements to amount of
new business Is proportionately no larger than that of other life Insurance
1 wish to refer to the very energetic
and capable efforts on the part of our
agents in securing business, and I )iuve'
every confidence tliat their efforts will
he even more successful during the
present year.
Our directors have been indefatigable
In lending their time and energies to
furthering tho interests of the company and Mr. Davis our general manager has proven himself to be an efficient and conscientious ofllcer, who hns
at all times taken a very deep interest
in tho company's affairs.
As to the ultimate success of the
B. C. Life, there eau be no doubt. The
experience of the past two years has
shown us tliat the p ■oy-le of the West
aro loyal to Western institutions, when
those Institutions are bona tide ones.
People the world over are coming more
and more to realize the necessity for
making some provision for protection.
In case of dentil, of those dependent
upon them. The future of our company
Is bright indeed. We have deevlopment
and prosperous conditions on every side
and in every walk of life. Tlio cities
and towns of the West are growing,
uud the expansion of ihe country Is
becoming wider each succeeding year.
Ked by. and yet contributing to, this expansion, our company's success Is assured. T once again express my pleasure In seconding the motion for the
adoption  of the  report.
Dr. W. D. Brydono-.lnek, medical
director, snid:
Mr.   President   and   Gentlemen,—The
medical report for the yonr 1012 is one
that your company mny reasonably congratulate Itself on. We have practically
completed the second yenr of existence
without a single dcuth amongst our
policy holders, numbering 001 and representing a total business of nbout
S2.250.S7ii in force, making each pollcv
average about $2.5oo.
If we consider that, taking the average age of up applicnnt for life assurance nt 32 yenrs, the uverage premium
for this age for S1000. amounting to
about $84.00, tho uverage number of
deaths at this ago amounting to nbout
S.I0 per mon, your death claims would
have amounted   to  about   $18,000   if  the
average mortal!ly had obtained. We
may well look backward with some degree of satisfaction at tho result.
Tho applications received during the
year 1012 amounted tu $1,956,050. Wo
declined or postponed judgment on
about $70,000. There are outstanding
policies amounting to about $24,692, and
tho policies issued during the year represented nbout $1,3«0,35S.
It has been a great pleasure, and, indeed, an honor, to havo been associated

Association has during tho first two

Your company is ns yet in its Infantile stnge, and requires careful nursing and good judgment in tiie administration of Its affairs yet before you

In connection with the work Incidental to the position of medical director
lo your company, Iwould like to pay
tribute to the loyal support which has
been afforded me by your medical referees, your general manager, Mr. Sanford S. Davis, your actuary, Mr. Stiver,
and the office staff generally.
Each application has received careful
consideration, necessitating in some
cases considerable correspondence, not
only with the medical examiners, but
also with some of the shareholders, as
wo believed that they would In some
cases be able to give us valuable information ns to the desirability or
otherwise of certain  applicants.
The class of risks which had been
placed before us for approval or otherwise spooks well for the discrimination
which has been exercised by your
agents, and apparently they have always
considered the interests of the company
as occupying the first place when soliciting business.
Your medical examiners hnve been
faithful In the performance of their
work nnd hnve not hesitated to give
the compnny the benefit of any doubts
which might arise from the examination of an applicant.
ln conclusion, I think we may safely
prophesy that within a very few years
tho B.C. Lifo Association will occupy
nn enviable position among the leading
lifo assurance companies of Canada.

When the waters, mournfully,

When the world is all asleep,

And the summer evening through,

time composers sounded forth in horn

be, in his Victoria engagement, assisted by Miss Florence McMillan,
pianiste-accompanistc, formerly Hilling a similar position with Mme.

N3W YORK is still talking over
the stupendous success achieved
by that master of the violin, Mischa
Elman, when he made his first American reappearance after an absence
from this country of a year and a
half last Saturday in Carnegie Hall,
New .York. That occasion, declare
exports, will be long remembered.
Even conservative music lovers assert
that they do not remember any such
reception as Elman received, having
been extended to another violinist.
Max Smith, music critic of the
New York Press, in pnrt said: "A
great crowd flocked to Carnegie Hall
to hear the popular Russian virtuoso.
Its enthusiasm swelled into vociferous acclamations when Elman granted final encores after the grand piano
had been rolled to the rear of tbe
stage and the lights put out. It became apparent yesterday that Mischa
Elman is all that lie has been in the
past, and still more.
"Who can resist the full, vibrant,
and soulful beauty of Elman's tone?
The swelling emotionalism of Wagner's melody, proclaimed with an intensity throbbing with rod blood,
gripped the feelings and stirred the
pulses." Mischa Elman will bc heard
in Victorin, Saturday evening, March
1, under the direction of the Vietoria Ladies' Musical Club.

comedy was presented nt the Victoria
Theatre by Cohan & Harris, when
Mr. George M. Cohen's farce
"Broadway Jones" occupied the
boards. As Jackson Jones, otherwise
known ns "Broadway," Mr. Ralph
Morgan excelled; ho combined in due
proportion the vacuity of the gilded
youth with tlie shrewdness of the heir

clever. "Broadway Jones" is a

PRESENTED by n capable eom-
-1 pany there is a possibility that
"The Girl From Tokio" might be
amusing. As presented, however, by
the troupe which appeared at the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday night it
was a painful travesty of comedy.
With a leading lady who affected a
pronounced drawl, possibly assumed
to win a Victorian audience, n me-
chanicol comedian and a support of
third-rate performers, the play was
beneath all criticism. It wns a thousand pities that it was sandwiched in

only believe that whicli carries its
own evidence on its front, and is good
enough to be believed, worthy of all
acceptation. The God of the future
will be Jesus' God of love, not the
capricious and ferocious deity of the
strait and Pharisaic sects.

To the Editor of The Week.
Dear Mr. Editor:—I wish to scud
' Do you a few lines re the argument as to
the equality of the sexes, not with a
view to appearing in print, but by
way of stating the case to you personally, from a point uot hitherto discussed as far as I know.
My contention is that if girls and
boys arc brought up and educated
with similar training, the girls will
show quite equal abilities and attainments.
I have been led to form tllis opinion from the fact that since the days
when university education became possible for girls, in the exams the latter
have come out usually ahead of their
brothers ond rarely much behind
them. The question of equality is
very much in Ihe bringing up and education.
Medical men will tell you that superiority of intellect does not depend
on the size of the brain, but on its
convolutions, and I tliink I have heard
or read that the brain of an ordinary
well balanced woman has more intricate aud finer convolutions than
that of the ordinary mau. High class
education hriugs out the qualities.
If you take two children, boy and

Over 43 Years' Experience in the
New McLaughlin
OVER forty years of that time have been
spent in making McLaughlin carriages
and buggies. McLaughlin carriages bore
a good name. They earned it. It was won on sheer merit.
A customer bought a McLaughlin carriage when he had the
price simply because it represented the best he could get. He
could buy cheaper carriages, but hc could not get McLaughlin
service. Service can't be had for nothing. It costs money and it's
woith it.
But here's the point! The same standards that made the McLaughlin
carriage famous are still applied tn the making of McLaughlin cars.
Each 1913 McLaughlin car is the product of over two generations of
successful effort directed solely along one line.

Of Interest to Women
By Polly
Ajy-1* are reminded in a recent New
York paper of the evolution
there of a spirit which we, through
our associations and British ancestors, are so familiar with that it is
only through such reminder that we
are conscious of the fact that "we
were not always thus." Recently, however, Miss Genevieve Ward, the venerable ond well-known tragedienne,
said at the dinner kiven in London to
Arnold Bennett by the producers of
"Milestones," that only forty years
o no drawingroom wos open in England to a professional nctor or actress.
Now they con go anywhere. In New
York, not long ago, o certain famous
actor was just barely tolerated as a
member of a leading club, nnd a cottage owner was upbraided by the
board of governors of a fashionable
residential pnrk because she had entertained nt a week-end housepnrty a
famous leading man. Another incident of the same period illustrates the
feeling which prevailed in the society
of the American metropolis, when a
prominent hostess gave a musicale
with a number of artists from the
Mcti'opliton Opera House. The professional brotherhood and sisterhood
were fenced off from the guests, on
this occasion, hy an aisle of ribbon,
and tbey partoook of their supper at
a separate table in a small dining-
room. From our standpoint wc might
he inclined to sympathize with the
guests who were treated in this inhospitable manner.
•   •   •
LATELY, HOWEVER, a revolution has come about, and ultra-
fashionable people have united with
thc people prominent in art, literature, music nnd the stage for the
purpose of mutual entertainment.
The amalgamation has come nbout by
mutual consent, and has effectively
laid to rest, that bete noir of the
nouvenu riehe, to wit ennui and boredom.
One of the Infest achievements hns
been fhe formation by one of the
cleverest of New York's society women, Mrs. Benjamin Guinness, of a
new social movement.   This hns for
its purpose the gathering together of
the lending society people of New
York—people who entertain in London ond Paris as well as in the big
American city, and the best known
writers, actors, singers, aud artists of
the day.
Mutual amusement has been derived
from the experiment, nnd we hear now
of the formation of a Stage Society
for the private presentation of plays
whicii otherwise might never be publicly presented. This is quite in the
spirit of the Incorporated Stage Society of London, with which, by the
wny, the new organization is to cooperate.

for that matter the whole of Anglo-
Saxondum and those other peoples
who affect the fashion, hnve heen disposed to deplore the custom which
makes block the symbol of mourning.
Although the color is becoming to
the majority of people, it has a depressing influence on the wearer and
is so puritanicnl in its severity of
suggestion that even one's friends are
more or less affected by the sombre
garb. The latest decree which has
gone forth is that white mourning
shall be worn, and the all-white robing is commencing to be regarded,
even for deep mourning, as quite ns
much within the bounds of convention as block. Unlike blnck, however,
more care must be exercised to sec
that, the white mourning costume shnll
conform to certain prescribed rules, in
order that it may not exceed the
bounds of correctness nnd good tnste.
In wearing white mourning no
blnck may be introduced any more
than when in blnck mourning one may
introduce white. The white mourning costume must be of unbroken tone,
it must he pure white, and the materials must be lustreless in order to
avoid any semblance of the ostentn-
tion which violates the whole idea of
mourning. Evening gowns of white
may be decorated oven with bends—
provided the beads are dull and tlie
designs simple. Thc idea may not be
unsuitable for those who can afford
lhe luxury—for white is undoubtedly
a luxury when worn without cessation, rain or shine—but if black is
once dispensed with as a badge of
mourning we think that the general
tendency will bc in favour of dispensing altogether with any outward symbol of mourning, u tendency wliieh
has been quite generally noticed during the last few years.
The following hints of what to wear
will suggest some of the difficulties of
white mourning in smoky London, or,
for that mater, Victoria during November to March: For suits and
tailored dresses, dull white serge,
trimmed with plain dull buttons;
kinases of white French crepe, white
chiffon,   or   white   mourning crape,

recently by nne of the locol decorators

of studying the occupant-to-be at

in n telephone conversation relative to
the mere business elements.nf the undertaking, we are convinced reversely
Ihat one's moods are influenced enormously by their surroundings. It may
be interesting to reflect, the individuality of the person who uses a room
in the decorations thereof, but it is
equally interesting to note the effect
of nn all-rose room on a person suffering badly with nerves, or of a
yellow-green on one who is afflicted
with biliousness. The women of the
French rennissnnce were more modern thnn the moderns in sueh matters,
Madame Mointenon, we ore told,
recognized the psychology of decoration, ond furnished her boudoir with
great austerity in order that the simplicity nnd peaceful atmosphere
should impress the "Sun King,"

The drawingroom in the modern
home, is, perhaps, the room where
personal preferences and prejudices
nre least emphasized. There is a certain prescribed formality of decoration, which makes it almost impossible to convey much impression of personality in this, the library, the den.
the livingroom and the other parts of
the house being left for the individual
touches which convey so much to the
observant eye.
THE WHOLE WORLD is sympathizing with the widows of the brave
explorers who lost their lives in the
Antarctic expedition. There is, perhaps, in the minds of most, as high
an estimate of thc women's courage
us of the men's. Thc men, buoyed by
ambition, excitement, nnd the expectation of achieving their splendid purpose, as well as by the spirit of com-
bativeness which always impels men
who undertake sueh hazardous work,
hod much to compensate them for the
hardships which they bod to endure
before the terrible termination of
their quest; Ihe wives had only the
wait ing. the ever hopeful yet ever
doubting suspense, the constant gnawing fear without thc relief of action.
The lime old situation wherever the
men have gone to face the dangers
and the women huve bided ot home
to await their return hns to record
another of those melancholy chapters
to its annals.
For Women Golfers
WOMEN golfers of Victoria will
be interested iu the ndvice given
recently by Edward Hay, British open
champion, as to the best methods of
learning the game. Mr. Hay believes
that the secret of successful golf is
largely in self-conquest, which ploys
so great a part in other "worthwhile" endeavours. Says the champion :—
"The very best ndvice thot con be
given to a woman golfer in her novitiate is net to attempt too much; to
be patient and not get upset at Hie
apparent tardiness of success. The
beginner has not long to wait before
the difficulties of the game are impressed upon her, nnd this is the lime
when she should take 0 grip on ber-
stlf and resolve that, come what may,
she will master tbe game.
Olubs Often Too Heavy.
"I firmly believe Hint the idea that
heavy clubs result in longer drives
being obtained is lhe reason why so
many women make little progress.
The weight of their clubs should be
determined hy their power to swing
them. It follows, therefore, if the
clubs are on the heavy side, the user
is at their mercy, for they hnve no
ccnti'ol whatever. So far as the build
cf the club is concerned, no womuu
should play with a club that possesses
u stiff shaft, for to use this successfully strength of wrist is essential.
Rather should the shaft possess u
lillie suppleness, for this undoubtedly assists the player.
Accuracy Versus Force.
"The novice who apparently strikes
the bull correctly, but is annoyed because it appears such n poor length
of stroke compared wilh lhe force applied, invariably tries lo bit linrder,
but Ihis agoin is fatal, for it is of no
avail to press for distance. She
should lirst acquire a good swing, anil
a good swing is a swing well timed,
the force being applied at the proper
moment. We must stnrt off with the
knowledge Hint the woman player
must rely on accuracy to 0 great extent to make up for her physical
shortcomings, and tbis being obtained, it is surprising what a decent
length of stroke follows.
Swaying Body a Mistake.
"The majority of women players
lind it extremely difficult to pick
up the boll cleanly through the green;
this applies to wooden club play, and
the explanation is perhaps that the
club is not traveling quickly enough
to counteract this, and I think she
could see to it Hint the brassey has
more than the average amount of loft.
To obtain length the beginner often
uses her body. That is to say, she
sways when swinging, but this is asking for trouble, for the result of the
swaying is invariably a missed stroke.
Swing your nrms, but not your body,
though in the following through your
weight should go nfter the club.
"Trust tbe Club."
"When using the mnshie and a
bunker has to be negotiated, a beginner often drops the right shoulder,
thinking this will assist in raising lhe
ball. To these I would say that the
club is made for the purpose of lifting lhe ball, and the beginner should
trust the club a lil He. Keep your
body still, therefore, or the green-
keeper will view your progress with
dismay, even when you replace the
pivot. But; do not be afraid to take
turf when the tee demands it; if it is
a bad one, grip the club tightly and
put oil your power into the stroke.
Despernte lies require desperate remedies, and there is no scope for
. Flay on Orthodox Lines.
"Learn to play all strokes in the
correct manlier, for there is great
satisfaction, even though we should
foozle, in the knowledge that the
attempt was on orthodox lines

A W eekly Review of the Most Important Happe?iings in the Mining World,  With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M. I. M. E. Greenwell Medallist.
ONLY by taking advantage of the technical definition of elay
as a mineral can one justify the inclusion of this article in n
mining column, but clay is a mineral, anil to be utilized it
has to be mined. In any event, apart from the operation of mining,
it has a very intimate association with many of our most important
industries. When the coking of eoal wns first established as an independent industry in British Columbia fire bricks were -•jessary
with which to line the coke ovens. These had to lie brought from
Scotland, and cost about $C0 per thousand. The fire bricks in a
single oven cost about $500, so that if it were possible to manufacture them from local clay the cost would probably be reduced af
least 50 per cent. A large number of fire bricks are used in smelting of every kind, whether it be in the small cupola of the foundry
or the larger furnace of the smelting works. We are all hoping that
within a few years an iron smelting industry will bc established at the
Coast and steel making developed. When the time comes no inconsiderable item in the cost will be that of the fire bricks. No fire clny
has yet been discovered on Vancouver Islnnd wdiich will mnke a
satisfactory brick. Indeed, it is probably correct to say that no
first class fire brick is manufactured in Western Canada. This line of
goods still has to be imported from Scotland, Wales, or the United
States. Not only as an individual investment, but as a stimulus to
the development of other industries, the manufacture of fire brick is
a matter which should receive the attention of investors.   Scarcely

less important to the community at large will be the development of a
high-class, red, pressed brick. The day is not very far distant when
frame houses will be things of the past within a very much larger
radius than as now defined by the city fire limits. These limits are
constantly extending, and the cry is for goocl bricks. It is true
that most of our large modern buildings are constructed with concrete
walls, whicii is an inartistic substance to gaze at, and has to be covered
up with something more decorative. At present there is a run on terra
cotta facing, a form of ornamentation whicli the soul of Ruskin would
have abhorred. But a glance at all our best buildings will show that
even tho patrician terra eotta does not quite oust the plebeian
brick. In nearly all the best modern buildings in the eity a pressed
facing brick is used in combination with the terra cotta or stone. Some
reference wns made in the editorial columns of the last issue of The
Week to a bed of shale near Tyee Siding, whicii has ben subjected to
severe tests, and which has been found capable of producing a very
fine rod pressed brick. Samples have been brought to this office; they
fully bear out all that is claimed for them, and, while the problem
of brick-making is not nn easy one to solve, one thing is certain, that
the bed of shale from which one perfect brick can bo produced, is
cnpnblo of yielding millions. Tnto the question of manipulation, processes ancl costs it is not necessary to enter, hut on general principles
The AVeek is glad fo recognize the fact that a suitable quality clay
has been found from which to manufacture an article which should
be in great demand in Victoria and which only calls for proper
organization and good management to become a paying investment.

the mining industry has been highly
satisfactory. Practically without t lie
assistance of outside capital, the
miners of Omineca have, by their eu-
eigy nud perseverance, demonstrated
lhe great value of the district, and
have already developed al lens! two
mines to llic shipping singe, with
others rapidly nearing lluil goal. And
this tins been dune without the indiscriminate "boosting" nud stockjobbing Indies wliieh have hnd such ill
effects in other camps.
The appearance of Omineca mines
in the list of shippers und dividend
payers will attract the attention of
llic mining world lei these great mineral resources, and tlie result will lie
nn influx of men and capital which
will soon result in mining development which will satisfy the most optimistic.

DORT EDWARD, B.C., the new
* townsite adjacent to Prince Rupert, wdiich has been planned and laid
out by expert engineers as an industrial annex to the G. T. P. terminuB,
supplying the industrial sites nnd facilities which Prince Rupert will be
unable to afford to the extent that will
bc required, is making a strong bid for
the industrial business of the North
Pacific Const of Canada. The new
townsite has a host of advantages in
its favor topographically and such excessive cure has been devoted to the
platting of the townsite and harbor
thnt those who have been over the
ground nud who have seen the plans
declare that Port Edward will be remarkably well equipped to compete in
the Const business of the future.
Port Edwnrd will, besides its advantages of a fine natural townsite
and a harbor that admits of the building of pier wharves with a total dockage capacity of not less thnn 16,900
feet nnd that will accommodate, without any dredging or other treatment,
the largest vessels afloat, offer abundance of cheap power and water and
comparatively low taxation.
Great Power Plant
As far as power is concerned the
Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric Company, which could have found accommodation nt Prince Rupert, but which
enme to the conclusion that Port Edward would be the industrial centre,
is now putting in a Diesel Oil Engine
plant at a cost, approximately, of
$183,000. This is only temporary
nnd will be replaced by n large water-
power plant as soon as the company
is able to bring it into action.
Transportation, as far as Port Edward is concerned, will bo very good
right from the start. Boat and rail
services will connect the townsite with
the outside market and also (with
Prince Rupert, thc future great city
which Port Edward will serve. These
means of transportation will bc supplemented nt once by n government

timber, furniture, fish and, in fact,
for anything that can be manufactured at Port Edward or Prince Rupert. The Queen Charlotte Islands,
not far from Port Edward, are developing rapidly and will contribute
much to the prosperity of that town
and of Prince Rupert. Moreover, the
entire country tributary to Port Edwnrd and Prince Rupert, north and
and also Alaska and the Yukon, will
bc supplied from the (I. T. P. terminus and its industrial annex, Port
Edward. The northern trade can be
supplied from the points just mentioned some two days quicker than from
Vancouver and other southern ports.
This will undoubtedly be the means of
attracting large bonded warehouses
from the United States as well as general distributing warehouses as centres for Eastern Canadian manufacturers.
More and more grain is being used
in the Orient every year. China is
only just awakening to a realization
of her possibilities. Japan is progressing every year. Grain and herring from Port Edward will find an
infinite market in the Orient because
the route from that port to the Oriental ports is shorter by many miles
than the route even from Vancouver.
One Hundred Per Cent Efficient
Port Edward is pretty nearly 100
per cent efficient as an industrial
townsite because its founders saw
what was wanted and, using the excellent materials Nature afforded
them at Port Edward, they laid their
work accordingly.
Bearing in mind the enormous profits that early investors in Prince Rupert lots have made already, it will he
very interesting to watch the first
purchases at Port Edward. The sale
will begin in all parts of Canada this
spring. Messrs. Harrison, Gamble &
