THE WEEK, SATUEDAY, MARCH 25, 1911
Eighth Year One Dollar Per Annum
liOCAL AUTOMOBILING
, The  daily  press   has   devoted   many
lilumns to the discussion of the local pro-
fcctitions of "scorching" automobiles. The
lolonist has constituted itself the apologist
If the offenders, and in its usual half-
parted way has damned Mr. Bowser's
Let with faint praise and denounced the
jolice for the manner in whicli they have
jnforced it.    The Times at first seemed
jiclined to support the action of the police,
ut in a recent issue veered at least half
- point in the other direction.    Regard-
SB of consequences The Week standsjust
'here it did when it demanded vigorous
3tion on the part of the authorities.    It
mintains that the new Automobile Act is
J good one, which does not err on the side
|r' severity, ancl that being on the Statutes
i should be enforced.   In spite of all that
as been said to the contrary the fact retains that of the sixty or seventy persons
tnvicted of "speeding" not more than
iree or four denied the charge.    This
■aves nothing to be said as to the justice
. the convictions.   What The Week now
ishes to say is that if the present law or
s enforcement works a hardship and is
io drastic the fault rests neither with the
overnment nor with the Police authori-
es, but with the automobilists themselves,
.cause they have failed to combine for the
nrpose of restraining the recklessness of a
iw of their number.    The remedy is in
leir own hands.   As a body they are eager
lough to appoint deputations and inter-
ew the Government when they think that
teir liberties are being curtailed, but they
) nothing to control speed, avert acci-
!jilts or remedy the consequences thereof
r voluntary concerted action. It is not
erely high speed whicli is a menace to the
lblic safety but the callousness and indif-
rence of the automobile driver, who in-
iriably runs away when he causes a mis-
ap. It is this cowardly and unnatural
induct which arouses public hostility, and
hich could easily be prevented if the
itomobilists formed a strong club and as-
imed control over their own members in
similar manner to that adopted by many
her coteries. Meanwhile, it is to be
>ped that there will be no relaxing of the
•esent efforts of the police to protect the
iblic and to enforce the Act. Two notable
currences during the present week furn-
l the strongest possible evidence that the
iblic can expect no consideration from
itomobilsts in general.
\ND SETTLEMENT
What the Victoria Times does not
low about Land Settlement in general,
id the Land Policy of the McBride
overnment in particular, would fill
veral special editions of that erudite
iiirnal. It is never tired of reiterating
ie charge that all the good lands in the
Irovince have been gobbled up by
Iriends of the Government," or some-
ines it rings the changes on "American
leculators." It would have the public
ilieve tliat there is nothing left for the
_or settler, ancl yet there are two facts
aring it in the face wliieh assuredly in-
te comment and with respect to which it
.serves absolute silence. The one is the
ithoritative statement made by Mr. Mc-
ride on the floor of the House during
ie last session of Parliament that, at a
loderate estimate, there are still 20,000,-
00 acres of land in the Province open
ir pre-emption or purchase. The next
; that every issue of the Gazette shows
iveral hundred advertisements of new
akers. Now the Times has done noth-
ig to prove that Mr. McBride's state-
lent is not strictly correct, and as it was
mde on the authority of the Lands De-
artment, it is easily susceptible of proof,
or has it attempted to show why the
re-emptor or the settler cannot go out
nd stake the identical land which is be-
lg staked and recorded day by day and
advertised in the pages of the Gazette.
The men who stake it have the enterprise
and the energy to do it.   Does the Times
admit that the prospective pre-emptor or
settler, about whom it professes so much
anxiety, lacks the energy and enterprise?
If so, the Province does not want him.
The   prospector   undergoes   the   greatest
hardships in seeking the precious mineral
upon whicli he hopes to locate a claim.
He knows that apart from the element of
luck the find must depend upon his endurance and skill.    The land-seeker requires
the same qualities, though probably not
to the  same extent.    What the  Times
seems to want is that' the Government
shall come round and ask tho favour of
being   permitted  to  select   all  the   soft
snaps, and deliver them to the door of the
pre-emptor ancl settler without any trouble
on his part.    This would be such a revolution in the methods of doing business,
even in land, that one would think the
Times would hardly have the hardihood
to suggest it.   And yet that is the only
possible   conclusion   to   place   upon   its
articles.   It would appear to some people
that the writers in the  Times have so
darkened "the windows of their understanding" that they cannot look out and
see that the sun is shining, and the Province prospering.
TOUT CONTENT
It is rumoured in inner circles that Mr.
Duncan N. Mclntyre, the popular and re-
snected City Editor of the Colonist, may
shortly be appointed Deputv Minister of
Fisheries in succession to Mr. Babcock. It
has been no easy matter to fill the vacancy
created bv the retirement of the latter
gentleman, who was admittedly an expert
in pisciculture, ancl one of tho highest authorities in the West on a scientific and
highly technical subject. One reason why
Mr. Mclntyre's name was not thought of
earlier is that like many men of special attainments he is apt to "hide his light under
a bushel." Most people who have enjoyed
the pleasure of his acquaintance have
known him only as a hard-working newspaper man, who has made a conspicuous
success in an onerous, and sometimes extremely difficult, position. It may therefore occasion some surprise to learn that
Mr. Mclntvre has always been a close student of scientific subjects; that he graduated
from Queen's University with biology as a
special subject, and that the particular
phase in biological study which claimed his
attention was research work in the origin
ancl development of the lower forms of life.
After completing a brilliant course at
Queen's University Mr. Mclntvre took a
post-graduate course at Cornell. He is
therefore well equipped as a man of scholarly and scientific attainments for the very
important position with whicli his name
has recently been associated. In addition
to this special attainment, Mr. Mclntvre
is a man of the most charming personality
and of the highest character; he has not
an enemy in the Province, even among
thoso who have been his nolitical opponents; his ten years experience of journalistic work has brought him in touch with
leaders of thought throughout the Dominion, and furnished hiin with opportunities
which can only come to a newspaper man.
Apart from the satisfaction which till
members of the Fourth Estate will feel at
the conspicuous success of one of their
members there will be, if Mr. Mclntyre
secures the position to whicli rumour assigns him, a very general confidence that
the business of an important and highly
technical Department will be ably and
conscientiously administered.
hardly germaine to the question at issue,
has undoubtedly re-instated him in the'
goocl opinion of the public.    The suggestion that on a certain historic occasion he
has dined "not wisely but too well" has
lxjen proved to have emanated from the
fertile brain of one Gordon Grant, who has
distinguished himself  on  previous  occasions by fathering reckless charges, and
by making frantic and sensational efforts
to keep himself in the lime-light.   He was
severely rebuked by the Court for his ill-
considered and baseless reflections upon
Mr. Templeman, and had not tlie manliness or the grace to apologise.   As no one
believed in this particular charge, it was
hardly necessary for the Minister to deny
it.    The public was  more  interested in
his attitude towards   the   investigation,
ancl particularly in the sworn evidence to
the effect that he had urged the re-instate-
ment of Yip On.   Mr. Templeman denied
that he had in any way sought to burke or
delay the investigation, and his statement
must be accepted.   He admitted, however,
that he had advised that Yip On should be
re-instated and that he clone so on the suggestion of Mr. Robert; Kelly.   This admission will not strengthen the public estimate of Mr. Templeman's judgment; it
rather confirms the conviction that both
Mr. Templeman and the Liberal party in
Vancouver have for a long time been manipulated by that astute party "boss," Mr.
Templeman's   evidence   threw   no   light
whatever on the subject of Chinese immigration and the defrauding of the Government, about which matters he claimed to
know nothing, an admission whicii will be
readily accented in view of his own reiterated statement that he is "no politician."
CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATION
The Conservatives of the City of Victoria have completed their ward organization and a word of congratulation is due
to all who have taken an active part in
placing the organization on a thoroughly
satisfactory footing. Never has so much
interest been evinced in the drudgery of
routine work. Without exception the
meetings have been large ancl enth ii-astio;
harmony has prevailed, and the most representative men of the ward have been selected, both on the local and the central
executive. A feature of all the meetings
has been the interest taken in the topics
of the clay, whilst the primary duty of
perfecting the machinery of the party has
been carefully attended to, time has been
found to discuss many important questions
aud addresses have been delivered by the
members and.other leader? of thc party,
and discussions conducted in which "party
workers have participated. Tt is the simple truth that tho Conservative party of
Victoria was never so well organized,
never so well led ancl never in as good
fighting trim. Mr. Templeman said something the other night abo it the prospects
of his own party at the next election, and
confided to the meeting that he had been assured by his friends that they were "excellent." His advisors cannot have obtained their information from anyone
conversant with the activity ancl enthusiasm of their political opponents. The
conspicuous success of Mr. Barnard at Ottawa, the equally conspicuous success of
the McBride Administration at home,
ancl the practical development of the Conservative policy in Victoria and Vancouver Island and on the .Mainland are facts
which not even tlie eloquence of Mr. Templeman can explain away, and whicli will
furnish an effectual stumbling-block to
the advance of the Liberal party for some
time to come.
jority rejected him at the last election, he
has represented this city just as if he were
the City Member.   True he has done much
for the Comox-Atlin   Electoral   District,
which he represents, but Victoria has had
the advantage of his services in spite of the
treatment which was meted out to him."
For some years the Victoria Times deluded the Hon. William Templeman into the
belief that he was the idol of his constituency.    Even the rude awakening of November, 1900, did not serve to dispel the-
illusion.    They would now have him believe that he is the idol of two constituencies, although, as is well-known, Comox-
Atlin, whicli accepted with very ill grace
the double-shuffle by means of which Mr.
Templeman was substituted for Mr. Sloan,
has given him distinctly to understand that
he will not receive a re-nomination.   His
representation of that remote, but very
much alive, constituency has been confined to one visit to Prince Rupert on the occasion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's tour, a circumstance which was bitterly resented by    .
his deluded constituents.   Just how Mr.
Templeman has represented Victoria, except in the very general sense in which &
Minister may be said to represent every
constituency in the Dominion is not apparent.    The one thing which he said he'
could and would settle, the Songhees Reserve Question, constitutes his most conspicuous instance of ignominious failure,
ancl will for ever be associated in his political record with a   historic  "joy-ride"
ancl a "Howdy-do,  Cooper ?"  Meanwhile.
Mr.    Templeman's    political    opponents
have settled the question, and much to his ■
chagrin ancl that of his local satellites taken it for ever out of party politics. Truly,
Mr.    Templeman's   "representation"   of
Victoria can only be adequate!- described by that word which Scott's bailie has
rendered immortal—"prodigious."
HON. WILLIAM TEMPLEMAN'S
EVIDENCE
The Minister of the Interior has at
last appeared before the Chinese Commission Court and given evidence which, while
REPRESENTATION
The Victoria Times, in a spasm of optimism, says that "Mr. Templeman is to

the people of Victoria by a very small ma-
A FEDERAL ELECTION
When the Hon. William Templeman
was in Victoria this week hc conveyed to
lhe faithful thc interesting information
that an election might be expected in the
near future, and his lieutenant, Mr. R. L.
Drury, has emphasized the statement at
several ward meetings. It can hardly be
surmised that Sir Wilfrid Laurier yearns
for an appeal to the people, because he
must realise that in spite of the beating
of the big drum ancl the tintinnabulation
of the little ones, every day that passes
increases the opposition to the Reciprocity
Agreement. His only chance of carrying
the country was to have recorded a snap
verdict, while the few apparent material
advantages loomed large ancl the broader
National and imperial aspects of the question had not been fully considered. The
splendid educational campaign conducted
by some of tlie leading papers of the
Dominion, and thc incisive and logical exposures of men like Sir AVilliam Van
Home and Sir B. E. Walker have had
their effect, and however thc question may
ultimately be settled, the verdict of the
country will be recorded on the broader
issues. In view of this phase of the question it is rather amusing to find the Victoria Times charging the Conservatives
with depriving Western Canada of its proper share in the settlement of the question
by forcing an election before the redistribution of seats. The Conservative party
had nothing to do with raising the bogey,
but is bound to do its best to lay it. The
time was chosen by thc Government and
not by thc Opposition, and it is an entirely
new theory that an Opposition must abandon its functions because the Government
has not consulted the convenience or the
rights of the electorate. THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, ^fAEOH 25, 1911
It is an extraordinary thing that
with so many people interested in
real estate these days and with columns of news in the papers telling
of gigantic fortunes made in a night, I
I cannot get a very modest little requirement of my own fulfilled. I am
going to tell you just exactly what I
want in the hopes that my editor will
not tumble to the fact that I am
using part of his paper as a free advertisement for myself whilst refraining from my duty of venting public
nuisances in order to further my own
interests.
* *   *
•I am not extravagant in my desires. Possibly you have read "Rudder Grange" by Frank R. Stockton,
in which case you will immediately
understand my wants when I say
that I am in much the same case as
the hero of that charming romance.
I want to rent a house; not a big
house, nor yet a very little one. It
must have five rooms furnished, and
a small garden thrown in would not
be refused. It must be situated close
e'nough to town or the car-line to
ensure my getting to the office in
time for lunch and back again in
time for my "beauty sleep"; at the
same time it must not be so close as
to make an advanced rent justifiable.
I should like to be near the sea,
though this is not a "sine qua non,"
but I refuse to be in an exposed
place where the wind would keep me
awake at nights. There must be at
least one open fire-place in this
house, and if a cat goes with this
last I will undertake the care of the
same. I am not in the least particular as to the sub-soil on which the
house is built, but I expect the
drains to be in good order and I am
not keen on living in the neighbourhood of a cess-pool. Now, if any-
■body knows of just the place to suit,
this is the time to speak; there ought
to be no difficulty in getting a "rake-
off" from the lessor, and it will be
taking a chance of being in the swim
and doing a little dabble in real
estate with all the other "suckers."
* *   *
I saw in one of our exchanges this
week that a town in the Interior has
been having such trouble with its
young "hoodlums" that in future a
plain-clothes constable was to be on
duty at the theatre every night. I
could have wished that such an official had been patrolling the Victoria
Theatre last Monday night. Sitting
directly in front of me was a gang
of similar characters hailing from
goodness knows where; I am nearly
certain that they were not Victorians.
They were of the "cheap sport" type,
and everyone knows what that
means. The conversation which they
carried on throughout the performance was intended to create the impression that they had been awfully
naughty little boys thc night before
and that some nameless person who
should have completed their number
had been so exceedingly naughty
that he had been unable to take his
place with them. I was perfectly horrified at their depravity, and, though
it was hard to believe, feel 'convinced that they must have "blown
themselves" to at least ten cents
■worth of beer apiece on the evening
in question. However, be that as it
may, neither their past conduct nor [
their future abode worried mc in the
slightest; what I did object to was
their talking throughout songs and I
speeches, their riotous applause at in-1
appropriate intervals in what may be j
called the Morse code of clapping, j
the turn-turn, tum-tum-tum style, and
their general air of having bought
the whole theatre for a nickel.
* *   *
I suppose that I shall be told that
I am making a mountain out of a
mole-hill and that I am censuring
thoughtlessness as though it were
one of the cardinal sins.   It may be
so, but then people are so terribly
thoughtless and in many cases so
painfully indiscreet. For instance, I
was taking my ease at the Empress
Hotel the other evening, sitting down
and enjoying the music, when some
guests came and sat down on the
other side of my seat and began to
criticise their acquaintances. Presently a party went out through the
swing doors and immediately I overheard the following:
"Good Lord! There's that—outfit."
"No, where?"
"There; just gone out of the door.
I can't stand that bunch, they're so
dressy."
"Yes. Wherever we go we always
find that same—outfit. I can't think
how they do it."
Here followed a discussion as to
the finances of the "out-fit." These
people never took the trouble to see
who was sitting behind them. I
might have been a personal friend of
the said "out-fit," in which case I
should have had the priceless pleasure of retailing the whole episode to
the ladies concerned, a most fascinating employment. Unfortunately, I
knew neither the scorners nor the
scorned, so retail this little story in
the hopes that it may reach the eyes
of one or both parties and that they
will recognise each other.
* *   *
When I have perfected details of
organization I intend to send a circular to all my readers asking for
their support in an "Anti-Uncut
Book and Magazine Movement," designed to boycott all publishers who
persist in launching books and magazines with uncut pages on the market,
and to disparage the genius of all
authors who consent to their works
being so brought before the public.
I know nothing more annoying when
one has comfortably composed oneself in an arm-chair for a good long
read, with tobacco and all the other
accessories to reading within range,
the fire well made up and the light
suitably adjusted, than to find that
the pages are not cut and that it is
necessary to hunt round for something with which to cut them. Even
then it spoils the whole pleasure of
reading to know that the faster one
reads the sooner another cutting will
become necessary. The sensible man
cuts the whole book at once and so
gets it over; the rich man hires someone to do it for him; the lazy man
lends thc book to a friend and takes
chances on getting it back again. At
school the first thing a boy did when
he got into the Sixth was to hand
over his Lewis & Short to a fag to
be cut.
* *   *
But all these solutions to an ever-
present nuisance are unsatisfactory,
and it does not lessen thc nuisance
to know that it is so entirely unnecessary. To me it always savours
of conceit on the part of the author.
What right has he to think that the
public is going to be so vastly interested in his book that they will
take the trouble to cut the pages? If
ever a friend of mine wrote a book
which was published uncut, I should
take particular pains to invite him
to my rooms and leave his work lying
about in a conspicuous position with
the pages intact, and then gloat over
his wounded feelings. When my
books appear I shall insist on them
being cut. I suppose you didn't
know that I was writing a book.
Well, I am; that is to say I have settled more or less on the subject matter of one, which will be in the form
of an historical romance dealing with
thc reign of one of the two mediaeval
English monarchs whom I most admire, viz., Henry II. or Richard III.
The other book will be of a more
serious turn and will treat of social
problems considered from a Loung
er's point of view. I* am in hopes
that the enormous success which
these two volumes will attain will be
of considerable value in advancing
the A. U. B. & M. M.
* *   *
I noticed the other night on my
way home that the streets had been
watered, but I cannot say that I have
noticed any diminution in the dust
which is one of our hardy perennial
nuisances. Is it absolutely necessary
to wait till the almanack says that
summer has come, or till the tourists
give us unofficial notification of the
same fact, before we do anything to
combat this evil? There were water-
carts and electric sprinklers last year,
why can they not be utilised at once?
The fact that the air is cold out of
the sun does not do away with the
undeniable fact that the dust is very
much in evidence and that in all
stores with open fronts the salesmen
are  kept busy dusting   their    wares
about six times a day.
* *   *
I hope that the management of the
Empress Hotel will take a word of
advice from me. I notice that the
messenger and telegraph boys who
are constantly sent to the hotel find
it convenient to ride along the
wooden sidewalk below the Postoffice
and then swerve off onto the grass.
By this means they avoid having to
haul their wheels up the steps which
lead to the main entrance. This action
on their part is eminently sensible
and far be it from me to blame the
boys for doing exactly what I should
do under similar circumstances unless
I had to suffer pains and penalties
for it. I would, however, point out to
the Empress Hotel management that
there are few things which show up
so clearly on turf as the tracks of
bicycle tires, and that already the
bank on the right hand side of the
sidewalk is beginning to look somewhat disreputable. A little box border or a dog-fencing of hoops is all
that is necessary to protect the grass.
* *   *
Since the new heading has become
an institution at the top of this
column, I have heard two remarks
concerning it. One interrogator seemed to think that it was a free advertisement for that most invaluable
house of call at the corner of Johnsons and Broad Streets, the lamps
evidently suggesting the three golden
balls which are so intimately connected with the patronymic of "my
uncle." This is not the case and a
little observation will make it clear
that the "locus standi" of the artist
was the north-west corner of Douglas Street. The second remark was to
the effect that it was a funny thing
that there should be so few people
about on such a busy thoroughfare.
It will be seen that only the Lounger
and his victim are depicted. The reason is obvious. All the other people
are in the Merchants' Bank, either
drawing out their money so that they
may join in the prosperous game of
"Real Estate," or depositing the
countless wealth which they have
gained by their last adventure. We
must remember that when times
were so prosperous in the royal
household that the housekeeper could
afford blackbird pie for the royal
table, the king in the adage was to
bc found in his counting-house, and
now-a-days, when Victoria is so prosperous, men haven't time to loaf
around the streets.
* *   *
Have you heard the latest story
from—shall we say Paris? A business man about town, respected and
beloved by all who knew him, persisted in wearing the habilments of
his native land. This costume, which
is picturesque and suits the free and
independent spirit of the men who
have never been conquered, has one
peculiarity in that it does not provide
for thc conventional draping of that
portion of the anatomy which the
Queen of Spain at one time was not
supposed to possess. This gentleman
lately entered a cafe and gave his
order to the smiling Alphonse. The
latter, however, had other customers
on whom to attend and passed the
order on to Gaston, who enquired
whom it was for. "Pour le bon
homme sans culottes" responded the
smiling Alphonse.
Optimistical Victoria
Victoria has grown so big with optimism there is no room
for the pessimist. The pessimist—the "moss-back"—is the only
man that flocks alone here now.
He is like Rudyard Kipling's feline "The cat that walked by
himself." But his days are numbered. Victoria now knows
enough to bury her dead and the cat Who walks by himself will be
catalogued away in the archives of the past with other ancient
catastrophal history.
Victoria's hed optimist is the man who can see double. But
he has no eyes in the back of his head, he can't see backwards.
He'll walk around the comer at any time to smile and he'll
grin like a Cheshire cat when he considers he might have bought
that very corner for one-quarter the price it commands now.
Yes! He smiles broadly from ear to ear, nay, from here to
yonder, when he thinks of the fat cheque he has just planked down
for it.
"A rosy view for mine," says Victoria, for she realizes that
her citizens are now abreast of the times. They may have to
gnaw a bone occasionally, but when they do they'll just declare it
quail on toast—the only kind of quail Victoria will recognize—so
they'll toast themselves in the best there is,-—Mumm's. There's
prosperity in Victoria and prosperity begets Mumm's Champagne.
Once there was a man who fell out of a 23-storey building; as
he passed the loth floor he said, "Everything is all right, so far."
No skidoo story, simply an optimistical illustration of getting
there. Victoria, however, is going up the storey instead of down,
—she's getting there with both feet.
So let us drink to the health of "Optimistical Victoria" in the
best beverage, G. H. Mumm & Co.'s "Extra Dry," the bottle with

Whilst the automobile controversy
is still raging it-may not be out of
place for me to remark that last
Monday I saw a car, No. 1402, being
driven down Government Street by a
small boy of about fourteen. With
him on the front seat was another
lad, perhaps two years younger, and

The New Grand Theatre
|[ spent one of the most interesting
lartcrs of an hour that  I  can  re-
bmber for some time at the New
rand  this  week,   listening   to   thc
lort lecture delivered by Jack Irwin, i
le wireless operator on the airship

p\ and clearly,  illustrates  his  lec-
Irc  throughout  with  magic  lantern

Jay be somewhat of an innovation
|i thc vaudeville stage, but if this is
I  hope  that  thc  innovation  has
ne to stay.   The laughter for the

teal  comedy,  "A  Matrimonial  Sub-

dealing with the captivity of Latude

inde Pompadour has been one of
the features of the week. Mr.
Price has been fortunate enough to
secure rather a catchy little coon
song which is a big improvement on
the ordinary "twaddle."
The Majestic Theatre
Undoubtedly Mr. Christie scored
heavily this week with the wonderful
set of pictures dealing with Col.
(Buffalo) Jones' expedition to Africa
for the purpose of lassoing wild animals. How on earth the intrepid
cinematographist managed to hold his
ground and secure the pictures which
are shown is beyond the intelligence
of the average person. These pictures are far clearer than one would
imagine possible, and the whole series
is an education in itself. If these lines
are read by any people who have not
seen them I advise them to make a
point of going to see them on the
very first opportunity that presents
itself. MO MUS.
Marie Dressier in "Tillie's Nightmare"
It is predicted that when Miss
Marie Dressier, in her latest and
greatest success, "Tillie's Nightmare," under the management of Mr.
Lew Fields, opens at the Victoria
Theatre for three performances, April
18 and 19, she will "catch the town."
"Tillie's Nightmare" comes here
direct from the Lew Fields' Herald
Square Theatre, New York, with the
distinction of having enjoyed the
longest and most successful run of
any musical show Broadway has seen
since "The Girl Behind the Counter."
Miss Dressier has always been regarded as one of the cleverest comediennes of the English-speaking
stage, but until Mr. Fields provided
her with this vehicle, designated as a
"mixture of mirth and melody," the
book of which was written by Mr.
Edgar Smith, and the music by Mr.
A. Baldiwn Sloane, she had never
been fitted with a character so suited
to her peculiar talents.
"Tillie's Nightmare" is undoubtedly
one of the funniest plays of its
character the stage ever has known.
Despite all its laugh provoking situations, its bewildering costumes, its
four-score of pretty girls and its
seven elaborate scenes, there yet is
here and there a mark of pathos in
the character of Tillie Blobbs, the
boarding house drudge, which lends
to the performance a genuine heart
interest, which distinguishes it from
most of the musical plays of these
days.
TOPICAL TRIFLES-XX

irery night, A fine historical romance
It is a curious fact that age should
be such a sensitive point with the
human being. It is supposed to be
chiefly the failing of women to conceal and be ridiculous concerning
their age, but in reality a man is
much the same, the only difference
being that one does not hear so
much about it. A man may be as
old as he feels, regardless of other
facts, but when the top of his pate
is bare and shiny the girls begin to
call him "that old buffer" among
themselves, no matter how skittish
a gallant he may be. And so it is
not merely the poor girl who has
not yet found a husband who
trembles at the march of Father
Time. The bachelor who has arrived
at the age of discretion, whatever that
may bc, and can look back upon a
whole catalogue of conquests, becomes as conscious of his crow's feet
lines and his thinning locks as any
frivolous society woman. He has as
much or more reason to be alarmed
at these signs of decay, for civiliza
tion has been slower in providing
him with the means of remedying or
diguising these little physical shortcomings. That he is painfully conscious of them is evident when he is
obviously embarrassed by a pretty
bread-and-butter Miss whose young
and innocent affections he has set
himself the task of winning, but
whose scrutinizing young orbs fill his
soul with vague alarm. However,
thc elderly suitor is not without his
charms, and if he can" keep his hair
on" in all its senses, and disguise his
contempt for a young rival he will
always have a chance.
The Daily Mail tells of some census
difficulties in England owing to the
ever verdant and resourceful suffragists having discovered an opportunity to recruit their cause from the
ranks of ladies of doubtful age, who
object to filling up the personal particulars in the census papers. Speaking of London suffragettes, the Daily
Mail says: "They are going to show
their independence of man and their
hatred for man-made laws by refusing to have themselves reckoned in
the census. They will walk about all
night, or, better still, they will all
go ahd spend the night at the house
of some sympathetic friend who will
solemnly swear that, five pounds or
no five pounds' fine, he will not add
their names to the census lists." Probably the sympathetic friend who is
foolish enough to collabrate with
this proposal of the London suffragettes will render himself liable to a
larger fine than five pounds, unless
he can keep the crowd quiet for the
night. Suffragettes have been "run
in" for disorderly behaviour before
now, and the rash fellow who houses
them may place himself in a false
situation.
It is a pity one cannot tell a lady's
age by her teeth. It might also have
the advantage of keeping her from
yawning in the presence of a bore-
some suitor.

THE ART OF LAUGHING.
BY BOHEMIAN
■ ..Among the many interesting topics
treated by Charles Lamb in his immortal Essays of Elia there is what
. I venture to consider a grave omission, "the gentle one" has nothing to
say on the Art of Laughing.
j It would be easy, if not profitable,
to speculate on   the   many   reasons
:, which might account for this omission.   The temperament of the writer
; and the sad experiences which overtook   him   are   sufficient.    And   yet
I Lamb was a humourist; one of the
most subtle, the most exquisite, the
most refined and the most unctuous
: among English men of letters.    Per-
, haps, however, his peculiar type of
humour is more provocative of a
smile or a chuckle, allied with a cer-
' tain indefinable sense of intellectual
satisfaction than of laughter.
One can imagine a "bookman" comfortably ensconced in an easy chair,
, beside his club-room fire, with a copy
of Lamb open at any one of the celebrated essays,, such, for instance, as
, "On Giving Thanks Before Meals."
Everything  bespeaks   cosiness, com-
'. fort and relaxation. The cares of the
world are left outside; the air of the
'reader is one of entire abstraction. He
'■ begins to read. The repose of his
countenance matches that of his surroundings.
After the first few lines there is a
twinkle in his eye, a puckering round
his mouth; then broader lines are
stencilled across his cheeks and at the
first favourite epigram or "bon mot"
a seraphic smile shuts out every other
expression and the lover of Lamb has
reached that condition which can best
be described as one of complete sympathy, in fact he is "en rapport" with
his author.
By universal consent it is a good
thing to laugh, although there may be
some difference of opinion about
"smiling." Its importance has been
emphasized during the present week
by the brilliant address of Lord Rosebery in advocating the Dickens Centenary Fund. In his inimitable manner Lord Rosebery emphasized' the
importance of laughter in a world
which to many people is dull,
and to not a few, grey. He declared
that thc man who makes people laugh
places the human race under an obligation; that the effect is not merely
mental but physical, and is highly
beneficial in every respect.
He dwelt lovingly on those favourite Dickens' -characters, the recital of
whose experiences never fails to compel laughter, however many times
they may have been read. It is the
perennial freshness of Dickens which
gives such a charm to his portraitures.
With most authors it is the case that
if they succeed in arousing mirth on
• a first reading they rarely or never
reproduce the effect.
Take the case of that interesting and brilliant humourist, W.
W. Jacobs, easily one of the most entertaining writers of the day. We
have all laughed at his jolly old sea-
dogs and their vagaries, but rarely
take his books from the shelf to renew their acquaintance. They lack
the appeal of the Dickens' characters;
they are more artificial and therefore
less effective, but Dickens is ever
with us, and if in this introspective
age we profess to find David Cop-
perfield too sentimental, or the Cheer
yble Bros, too transcendental, his creations, nevertheless, appeal to us,
arouse our sympathies .and our mirth
as the creations of no master since
the days of Shakespeare.
As the world moves on times get
busier and busier. Streets and strain
increase, and the necessity for relaxation is obviously greater year by
year. The finest relaxation, because
the most beneficial, is that which
takes a man out of himself and compels him to forget his anxieties. This
accounts for the universality of the
demand for amusement and light entertainment, and excuses the vehicle,
if the result aimed at be attained.
As one of the greatest benefactors
of all ages the world should and no
doubt will acclaim Charles Dickens in
his Centenary year, but the lesson will
be only half learnt if the thoughts of
men are not carried further, and if
they do not realise that the greatest
debt that the world owes to Dickens
is not so much the recognition of his
literary genius as of his influence in
emphasizing the importance of mirth
as a factor in the development of
human character.
In a sense Dickens has consecrated
laughter, and demonstrated it to be
not only a salutary mental and physical exercise, but a potent influence
for increasing the optimism of the
race, and dissipating the lengthening
shadows.

A Foreign View
Little things frequently illustrate
the English view of American geography very picturesquely. An Englishman had taken the Pacific Express at

he had forgotten something, so he put
his head out between the curtains and

he said.

Christening the Twins
In an English village a miner's wife
presented him with twins. At the usuaJ
time the twins had to be chistened, and
George, his wife and his friends proceeded to the church to fix the names of
the children. The minister asked the
father the names of the twins, and he
finite proudly replied:
"Steak and Kidney, sor!"
"Come, come!" replied the minister.
"These are odd names for your children!"
"What d'ye mean, Geordle?" cried his
wife.    "It's Yate and Sidney."
"Aye, it is, sor. Aa thout It was like
summit to eat!" shouted George
promptly.
He Knew About It
An old negro, being asked if the
water of certain springs was pure, replied: "Yess'um. Dis yar water had
been scandalized by de best phrunolog-
ers in the land, and they say, dey do,

REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
A notable illustration of the enhancement of values in the
lisiness section of the city is afforded in the sale by Mr. T. R.
lisack of a piece of property on View street just above Douglas
Ir $44,500. This lot, which measures 60 by 120 feet, was pur-
[ased by Mr. Cusack a couple of months ago for $20,000.

THE BUILDING OUTLOOK
At no time in the history of the city has the building outlook been
brighter. Three buildings to be erected represent an investment
of over $300,000, which is made up entirely of local capital to be
expended by three individual Victorians, Dr. Hartman and Messrs.
Hincks ancl Leiser. The drill hall scheme is not included. Apart
from these three mentioned buildings there are at least eight others
proposed, ranging in height from three to seven stories to be put up
in the near future, some of which is not ready for publication.
Plans of the Five Sisters block, the new Yates street dry goods
store, the new Union Club building and others, have been submitted
to the parties interested, and announcements will be made in the
near future. Also several other larger schemes are pending. To
say that within the next six months a dozen new buildings of three
stories and over will be erected is a conservative estimate. The
Y. M. C. A. building, the Sayward building and many others,
already climbing into the air are not included in the above count.
The apartment system is now coming to the fore in this city,
and beside those mentioned there are yet several others that will
be announced shortly. The Savoy hotel is something of which
Victoria can well be proud. The Savoy Mansions as a home for
bachelors is an innovation to this city. The Mansions for the
corner of Fort and Quadra will be attractive.
As soon as the plans can be completed by Mr. Rochfort, the
new Savoy hotel will be started. Work on the Leiser apartments
have already been started, while the contract for the Savoy
Mansions will be let very shortly.
BRADSTREET'S TRADE REVIEW
Montreal reports to Bradstreet's say a review of wholesale
trade generally seems to indicate that at the present time the
volume of business moving is of average proportion in most lines
of trade. In hardware, metals and kindred lines business is good.
Excellent orders are coming in ancl the outlook for the season is
most encouraging. Values are generally steady to firm. Country
trade is fair. Collections are variously reported. From country
districts it is understood they are slow.
Toronto reports to Bradstreet's say an excellent tone is noted
in all lines of business there, and in most cases the volume is well
up to expectations. The weather has been favorable to a continued
clearing up of winter lines and some spring goods have already
begun to move briskly in a retail way. Business at interior points
is showing signs of opening up nicely and nothing has occurred to
alter early indications of a good season's business. Collections
show little improvement.
Winnipeg reports say there is noted a heavier movement of
general merchandise than is usual at this time of the year.
Retailers from outside points say winter stocks of dry goods have
been well cleared up. A large number of retail milliners and
general dry goods merchants were in for the millinery openings
and business has been very brisk. Orders for general spring lines
are also good. Travellers are booking a good volume of orders
for footwear. Receipts of produce are fairly large and prices generally steady. Money is firm and in good demand. Collections are
slowly improving.
Vancouver and Victoria reports say general business there and
at provincial points is showing a more active tone. Wholesale
lines are moving well and trade at interior points and up the coast
seems to be opening out satisfactorily. Grocers report a splendid
run of orders. Trade in grain is quiet. Excellent orders for spring
dry goods have been placed and retail trade is beginning to show
some activity. Collections are fair to good. The large area of new
lands brought under cultivation since last year is expected to lead
to a heavy demand for seeds and fertilizers.
RECIPROCITY IS SURE TO HURT US IN ENGLAND
London, March 15.—Leading Anglo-Canadian financiers canvassed by the special correspondent of the Montreal Star, agree
that the reciprocity agreement has had little effect as yet in checking Canadian investments, except perhaps as regards the milling
industry, which many here think may be badly hit, but they do not
speak with equal confidence of the future.
One high authority said: "Sentiment has played a material
.part in inducing the recent large investments of English money in
Canada, ancl the public are very easily diverted from one country
to another as every one who has known the "city""flf London for
the last fifty years will admit, Indications are tliat reciprocity
may tend to check the remarkable flow of money of the past three
years. You may call it unreasonable if you like, btjAJliat will not
alter the fact." Jjjg;
WESTERN CANADA TRUST CO. PAYS TWENTY
PER CENT.
The Western Canada Trust, Limited, has declared a dividend
at the rate of 20 per cent, per annum, free of income tax, on the
paid-up capital of the company for the six months ended November
30, 1910.
This is the company of which Mr. Hamilton Benn, M.P., is
managing director.   Its head office is in London.
SOCIETY GIRL SHIPPING
Work is progressing as rapidly as can be expected on account
of the weather conditions at tlie Society Girl mine, which is located
at Moyie and adjoins tlie St. Eugene mine. The warm weather has
made it impossible for any more sleighing ancl until the road is in
fit condition for wagons no shipments will be made.
In speaking to J. P. Farrell, secretary of the company, regarding the shipments he said: "Shipments will be retarded for about
six weeks now, but during this time the ore taken out will be stored

at the portal of the tunnel, although, special efforts will be made
to continue shipments whenever practical." -
Nine cars of ore have been shipped in all 287 tons, to the
smelter at Trail.   This ore has been of a very good grade.
Work has been confined to development on the vein west of
the lower or No. 3 tunnel which is in a distance of 1400 feet. A
short time ago ore was encountered in the drift about 125 feet off
the main tunnel. Drifting has been continued on this for some 75
feet arid the ore vein has held a width of about three feet. The
ore has every indication of permanency. Raising about 20 feet on
the ore it is found to keep about the same width and improving in
value. In the bottom of the drift the ore is on an average stronger
than above the present workings. The same character of ore was
found 150 feet east in the bottom of the drift, thus showing the
extent of the ore body.
Spring improvements have not yet been started but it is
expected some new buildings will be put up soon. The annual
meeting of the shareholders of the company will be held in June.

Some holder of Crow's Nest stock is apparently trying to find

ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CROW'S NEST PASS COAL
COMPANY, LIMITED
The annual meeting of the Shareholders of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company, Limited, was held on Friday, March 10, 1911,
I at the head office of the company, King street west, Toronto, with
Mr. Elias Rogers, President, in the chair.
It was announced that a dividend of 1 per cent, would be paid
I to shareholders on March 20.
Mr. Rogers, in delivering the President's address, said:—The
I coal mining industry in the Crow's Nest Pass, both in British
I Columbia and Alberta, where there is now an output of almost
I three million tons of coal and over three hundred thousand tons of
coke per year, is the result of the expenditure of capital and industrial organization within a little over the short period of ten years.
In the year 1898 only 8,986 tons were produced by this com-
Ipany, and no other coal was shipped at that time from the district
I above referred to. In 1910 this company alone produced 1,209,762
J tons of coal, while seven other companies, which have opened mines
] within the last few years and are operating within about 40 miles
lof this company's property, produced during 1910, 1,699,379 tons.
From 1909 to 1910 inclusive this company has paid out in
I wages in British Columbia $16,209,788.99. Last year the pay roll
Iwas $2,259,357.20. The company also paid for plant and equip-
Iment from 1900 to 1910 inclusive, $5,031,261. A considerable part
lof this last sum has been distributed throughout the eastern Provinces for machinery, etc. The coal tax paid to the British
[Columbia Government in 1910 amounted to $75,469.40.
From these figures some idea will be had of the value of this
lindustry to Canada, and especially to the Province of British
|Columbia, where the large expenditure in wages is made.
The directors' report, with the statement attached, indicates
lthe result of the past year's operations  of this company,  and
■rightly understood, shows considerable progress.   It is necessary,
[however, to say, that without explanation it is not possible for
•shareholders to obtain an intelligent knowledge of the results of
lthe mining operations by comparison of the annual statements.
IThe accounting is at present on quite different lines from what it
Iwas formerly, and, besides this, there are other elements pertaining to the question of profits which have varied considerably.   For
•instance, large profits were shown from the sale of townsites at
[different times in former years.   There was the Fernie townsite,
[the Morrissey townsite and the Michel townsite.   In the annual
[statements these profits, also profits from miscellaneous sources,
[are not distinguished from profits on coal and coke.   Again, in
[former years, no account was taken of depreciation.   This perhaps
[was not necessary, as the property was good enough to take care
|of it, and probably is still.   However, in accordance with what is
generally considered good mining practice, we are now charging
Ito  "cost of coal" all renewals and practically all development
[work, and, in addition, are setting aside ioc per ton on all coal
|mined and all the coke made, as a "renewal ancl depletion fund."
This was not done until about the middle of 1908, and means that
lif the statement now presented had been made up on the same
pies as the statements prior to 1908, the showing would have been
6140,128.70 more profit than appears.
In 1910 quite as much development work was done as in 1907-8
|and 1909. This has almost all been charged to "cost of coal," so
[that if the same charge per ton for development had been made to
capital account in 1910 as in 1907-8 and 1909, about $100,000 more
|would appear in this statement to the credit of profit and loss, or,
[in other words, the combined profits, if this statement had been
■made up as in former years, would be $475,359,34. This, with one
■exception, is the largest profit ever shown by the company in an
annual statement (1905), and, leaving out land sales, the best
|showing of any years.
It seems necessary to bring these facts thus briefly to your
attention, and before moving the adoption of the report I would
like to say that we are deeply indebted to the officers and employees

Directors' Report for the Year igio
To the Shareholders:
The directors beg to submit to the shareholders their fourteenth annual report, including statement of assets and liabilities
as of the 31st of December, 1910.
The balance at the credit of profit and loss account, brought
forward from 1909, amounted to $156,025.12. The net profits from
all sources of the operations for the year 1910 were $178,925.16,
making the total amount at the credit of profit and loss account
$334,950,28. From this amount your directors have paid two
dividends of one per cent, each, or a total of $124,216, and have
carried forward to the credit of profit and loss $210,734.28 to 1911.
The coal mined during the year amounted to 1,209,762 tons.
The coke produced during the year was 191,498 tons. The production' of coal shows a steady and satisfactory increase each month
over the corresponding months of 1909; the total increase for
1910 being 310,717 tons.
The amount spent on improvements during the year was
$144,314.48, as against $215,839.15 the previous year. The amount
charged to mine development during the year 1910 was $19,316.29,
as against $98,115.37 in 1909, or per ton of coal produced .0160c.
in 1910, as against .1091c. in 1909.
The Crow's Nest Pass Electric Light & Power Company,
Limited, have paid to the coal company a dividend of $18,000 and
carried forward to the credit of profit and loss $2,953.11. The
Morrissey, Fernie and Michel Railway Company carried forward
from 1909 a loss of $26,227.67. That loss has been made up during
the year, and on the 31st of December there was at the credit of
profit and loss account of this company $11,296.81. During the
year this last company has paid off bonds amounting to $13,871.28,
which has reduced the amount of outstanding bonds to $37,500.25
as of December 31st. These bonds are $1,155.94 each, payable
monthly, and they are the only outstanding bonds against any of
the companies.
In the month of October the slack coal bins at Fernie were
partially destroyed by fire, interfering to some extent with coke
operations. The bins were fully insured and the repairs are now
nearing completion.
The agreement entered into by the company with the miners,
April ist, 1909, for two years, expires on April ist next, and
negotiations for a new agreement are now pending. It is hoped
that a satisfactory agreement will be arrived at.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
ELIAS ROGERS, President.
Toronto, Ont., March ioth, 1911.
GOOD REPORT BY THE CANADA N. W. LAND CO.
The report of the Canada North-West Land Co. for the year
'to December 31 last is highly favorable. The sales of farm lands
amounted to 62,137 acres for $747,131, as compared with 16,977
acres for $193,340 in 1909. The average price per acre is $12.02,
as against $11.39. The proceeds from sales of town sites also
compare favorably, being $40,869 in 1910, as against $20,655 m
1909. Two distributions on account of realization of assets are,
included in the year's accounts, amounting to $586,870, or $10 per
share. The amount carried forward is $1,785,715, as compared
with $1,582,437 at the end of 1909.
The company's whole position is that, as against a capital of
$59,205, it has, in addition to the balance sheet assets of $1,845,769,
an estate of 443,542 acres, and town site interests whicii last year
brought in $40,869.
The market price of the company's shares is about 100, making
the total market capitalization $5,870,700, while, excluding town
sites, the assets of the company at present prices for farm lands
equal $7,168,273.
ENGLAND BEATS THE C. P. R. AND "PENN" ROADS

MANY EASTER WEDDINGS
ARE ON THE TAPIS
Therefore perhaps it's not amiss to say that the first essential towards good
housekeeping is a good Gas Range. The benedict-to-be should see that his
bride experiences the joy of a stove that is always ready, an oven that is1
always right and a heat that can be regulated scientifically without trouble.
Home comfort cannot be assured with coal or wood
fires for cooking purposes. Don't cook the cook
over a red-hot range on a warm summer's day.
Avoid this by cooking with gas; just a turn of the
tap—no worry, no work, no waste of fuel or time.
Gas makes home comfortable in summer and
winter. It makes work light so that the housewife
has more time for recreation.
MANY
Easter Weddings
are on the Tapis
A Gas Range means that you can cook any meal
of the day, summer or winter, with ease and comfort. Let one of our men set up a gas range in
your ktichen and you will find that you have the
most modern and convenient cooking apparatus of
the age. The cost of maintenance is far less than
for a coal range.
WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO CALL AND SEE OUR FINE NEW STOCK OF GAS   RANGES AND STOVES

Ard officiated at thc ceremony. Thc

and was attended by her sisters, Miss
Jessie Macdonald, who wore a very
pretty dress of cream lace over satin,
with handsome silver trimming, and
Miss Christina Macdonald, who was
gowned in pink point d'esprit over

people attended. The tea table decorations   were   prettily   carried  out  in
green and pink, three large epergnes
forming a centre   piece,   filled   with
green  and  pink  carnations  and  asparagus fern.    Smilax was festooned
from the electrolier to each corner of
the   table.    The favors consisted of
dainty  green   Irish  hats.    The  confections and ices were all carried out
in    the   same   color.   The  following
young ladies presided   over   the   tea
table:    Miss   Viva  Blackwood,  Miss
Walsh,   Miss   Maude   McB.   Smith,
Miss Wooten and Miss Gertrude Jay.
They all wore pretty dresses of white
with corsage bouquets of violets and
shamrock, large picture hats adding
a very charming touch.   A delightful
musical programme was arranged for
the afternoon,  Mrs.  Oscar McMicking, Miss Nellie Lugrin, and the Rev.
Baugh Allen rendering some very delightful songs.    Among   the   invited

BOOK NOTES
One of the most vivid and gripping
pictures of war is that presented in
"The Green Curve," a book of short
stQries just issued. In style this
work bears a strong resemblance to
that of Poe. Another fascinating tale
of the Far West is "Two on The
Trail," at the Standard Stationery
Co.,  Government St.:
"The Green Curve," by Ole Luk-
Oie; Doubleday, Page & Co. $i.5o.
"Two on The Trail," by Hulbert
Footner; the Mussen Book Co. $1.50.
The Arcadians
Probably with the exception of
"The Chocolate Sold'er" no musical
comedy in years has scored such a
success at the Victoria Theatre as
did "The Arcadians" on Thursday
last. Admiration of the beautiful
dresses, the picturesque scenery, the
dainty dancing and the capable singing was openly expressed not only by
the vociferous applause which greeted every feature turn, but in the
snatches of conversation over-heard
in the lobbies and after the play was
over. The comedy of Gilbert Child
and the singing of Miss Alice Rus-
son alternately convulsed and delighted the audience. One feature of
the production must not be omitted,
viz., that though some of the characters stood out pre-eminent none
lagged too far behind. The chorus
was pretty, dainty and musical, and
what more can be expected from a
chorus? Thc principals proved themselves to be such in fact as well as
in name and the whole performance
was played without a single jarring
note. Public expectation which had
run high before the advent of "The
Arcadians" was completely satisfied.

There seems no possible chance
that the kimono sleeve will be disturbed in the least by the coming in
of another season's styles. Its vogue
at the moment is too firmly established to be shaken suddenly. Everything, from the cheap little waists to
the smartest and richest gowns , has
it. And the fact that it is universally
used seerns not to affect its standing.
When the public likes a fashion so
well that it clings to it in spite of
changing seasons it takes some time
to uproot it. Fashion makers are not
the iron-handed tyrants that they
would like to be. Even they, anomalous and mediaeval survivals of absolute monarchy, are curbed by the
Democratic spirit of the time. And
optimists   who   believe   in  constant
taken to decoy the rank and file of
femininity into such purchases speaks
volumes for his understanding of the
lurking love of beauty in every shopper's soul. If there is any field that
would yield choice designs in color
and form that he has not searched out
for his uses it is across.undiscovered
seas. Fields and gardens, museums
rich with ancient weaves, everything
that would lend itself to his purpose
he has employed freely and effectively.

The borders run through posy and
foliage patterns, parade stencil outlines and colors, bring in the cretonnes from old hand blocked linens
and cottons and run a full gamut of
the modern "new art" ideas and tones
terns. And at the trimming counter
flouncings embroidered in Bulgarian
colorings have arrived with bands to
match them.
The woman who must have parasols
to match her various summer frocks
but cannot afford to buy so many as
this would demand can cover her
own old frames if she is at all skilful with shears and needle. Take
the cover off the old frame and cut
a pattern of one of its sections. Then
cut out as many pieces as the original cover had and sew them together
just as they were in the old one.
Study the way the old cover was put
on and copy it faithfully.
The thin cotton dresses for the
summer will be smaftened by a sunshade that is covered with their own
material or with a plain material
that is the tint of their leading
color, providing the dresses are figured. The border materials that will
be used a good deal for summer costumes will find a place in the parasols, either around the edge or
around the top of the cover or both.
Sometimes a parasol that has become faded may be given a veiling
with chiffon, though this is more
difficult to do for oneself than it. is
to make an entire plain top. The
embroidered white or colored linen
parasol will be sure to be popular,
and there is no better time in the
year to do the work than in the
winter days when one is often housebound by the weather.
It ought to be said that the "hobble parasol" is out again, but its
close band edging a shirred top is
sure to miss its companion skirt
when spring skirts are once launched,
and if it remains it is certain to be
a mere reminder of a hideous fashion
that has passed on.
Not only the Knickerbocker girl
of patrician birth, but about every
daughter of Eve who still has youthful enthusiasms is looking with interest at those white and cream wool
suits streaked lightly with black.
And at this early hour it looks as
though the white and white and black
wool suitings, the ones that are
mostly white, would lead all the
host of fashionable materials. Colored batiste trims many of the handsome lingerie waists and gowns, and
one of the new ideas is to put a color
under open eyelet work or lace in
a white lingerie gown. It is to be a
great summer for color. Some persons say that the coronation of King
George V. has something to do with
it, but the fancy for striking color
has been in vogue for some time, and
the climax seems to be at hand.

NEW CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT
The new show-room on the first
floor of the Messrs. Finch & Finch's
establishment on Yates street is now
complete in every detail and is well
stocked with the new season's goods.
Some idea of the care which has been
exercised in the designing of these
rooms may be gathered from the fact
that the first consignment of carpets scut had to be returned as they
did not harmonise with the general
colour scheme of the furnishing. It
is safe to say that nowhere on the
Coast is there to be found a better
fitted or more attractive show-room.
A marked feature of this department
is the careful way in which the suits
and gowns are preserved in dust-
proof wardrobes and drawers. Another innovation imported from the
east is the arrangement of the fitting-
rooms. For instance, the French
millinery and suit fitting-rooms are
adjacent to teach other, being divided
only by a curtain. In this way it is
possible to try the combination of hat
and gown without unnecessary inconvenience. The decorations are carried out in white and gold, the general effect being dainty in the extreme. The firm are to be sincerely
congratulated on the enterprise and
energy whicii has marked their undertaking.
Particular attention is drawn to the
fact that the cuts exhibited on this
page represent what is actually in
stock at Messrs. Finch & Finch's
establishment.

THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, MAECH 25, 1911
1 RATHER AMUSING
The Liberal Press is falling foul of
I Sir William Van Home because of the
very able and incisive manifesto which
he published in the Montreal Star denouncing the proposed Reciprocity Treaty.
fit is true that Sir AVilliam is not infallible; it may also be taken for granted
that even so great a man as he may be
biased to some extent against a policy
which will seriously affect the institution
of which he was one of the founders, ancl
which his genius carried to successful
conclusion. But making due allowance
for this, the picture of the Liberal Press
of Canada belittling the opinion of Sir
William Van Home on a great national
and imperial question is indeed a sight
for the gods. Sir William is, in the
opinion of The Week, and in that of
| others far more competent to judge,
easily the ablest and the biggest man who
has ever been associated with the business
affairs of the Dominion. He is in a class
by himself. The men whose names
figure today on the list of Canada's
financial mangates are but minnows in
comparison with this Triton of finance.
Sir William Van Home is a genius without the erratic contrasts which distinguish
most men of genius. He has a great intellect, sound judgment, extraordinary
sagacity, ancl is an Imperialist of the
broadest ancl sanest kind. America is the
country of his birth, Canada of his
adoption. He made his first success south
of the Line and his affiliations therefore
would naturally lead him to look with
favour and impartiality on any project
which would tend to bring the two peoples
closer together. It is true that every man
-'should do his thinking for himself, but it
is equally true that we all look to leaders
of thought for guidance on vital questions.
And when Sir William Van Home, with
obvious sincerity and merciless logic,
argues that the Reciprocity Agreement, in
addition to inflicting serious injury on
special interests, will work out to the disadvantage of Canadian and Imperial
affairs, he is a bold man, even to the verge
of folly, who would dismiss such a manifesto with contemptuous comment, ancl
smart repartee.
THE OVER-SEAS CLUB
One, Ewart, an erstwhile employee of
the Toronto Globe, oblivious of Aesop's
fable of the frog, is seeking a little
notoriety by attacking Earl Grey for his
espousal and support of the Over-Seas
Club. It would be as impertinent for
anyone to defend Earl Grey against such
a charge as it was for Ewart to make it.
It is hardly conceivable that the latter did
not acquaint himself with the "creed" and
also with the "rules and objects" of the
Club before venturing into the field of
criticism; neither can it by the widest
stretch of the imagination bc considered
to have a political complexion, a statement which is duly emphasized by the
fact that its membership which now exceeds 25,000 is drawn from all parties.
It is only necessary, however, to quote
from the original charter, the Members'
Creed ancl the Rules and Objects of the
Club to satisfy all fair-minded persons
that in accepting the position of Patron
Earl Grey is but adding another to the
many obligations under whicii he has laid
the people of the Dominion:
members' creed
Believing the British Empire to stand
for justice, freedom, order, and good
government, we pledge ourselves, as
citizens of the greatest Empire in the
world, to maintain the heritage handed
down to us by our fathers.
RULES AND OBJECTS
To help one another.
To insist on the vital necessity to the
Empire of British supremacy on the sea.
To urge on every able-bodied man the'
necessity of being able to bear arms.
To draw together in the bond of comradeship the peoples now living under the
folds of the British flag.
THE MAYORALTY
The Week has had nothing to say recently on the subject of the forthcoming
Municipal Election, because matters had
not shaped themselves decisively. It now
seems likely that a popular candidate for
the Mayoralty in the person of Mr. D. E,
Campbell will be in the field to oppose Mr.
Morley. The Week sincerely hopes that
this expectation will be realised, not only
because it would be a calamity for Mr.
Morley to be re-instated, but because Mr.
Campbell is a gentleman possessing all the
qualific.ations which the City looks for in
the person of its Chief Magistrate. He is
a man of substance, a pioneer tradesman,
a man of business, a man of moderate
views, of even temper and of proved capacity as an administrator. Furthermore, he
has no axe to grind, he has not discounted
his usefulness by allying himself with a
group of fanatics, and during his presidency of the Board of Hospital Directors
he has shown that he can conduct the
meetings of a public body with fairness
with consideration and with dignity. No
doubt there are a number of citizens in
Victoria of whom the same might be said,
but they are not available and if Mr,
Campbell accedes to the request of the petition which is being extensively signed
he may rest assured that his return by an
over-whelmeng majority is a fore-gone
conclusion. He will have the hearty support of The Week and of all those citizens
who are allied to the best interests of
Victoria, and who realise that tho City
has had more than enough of "freak man
agement."
A GREAT PUBLIC WORK
Alderman Peden is to be commended
for the energy and ability which he has
displayed in initiating the movement for
the construction of a sea-wall along the
shore from Clover Point to Holywood
Crescent. The Week has been the only
paper to consistently direct * public attention to the necessity for this work. It is
not necessary to go into details. Suffice it
to say that the urgency is extreme and
that not only the cemetery but the Dallas
Eoad from Clover Point north is being
destroyed at such a rate that unless adequate protection is quicklv provided the
consequences will be serious, and the ultimate cost greatly increased. Alderman
Peden's scheme, which is being carefully
worked out by the City Engineer, is an
improvement on anything which has
hitherto been suggested, as it involves not
merely shore protection but the providing
of a Marine Drive, which will greatly enhance the attraction of that section of the
city. A reference to the map will show
that if this project is carried out it will
be a very simple matter to establish a
connecting link between Foul Bay and
Shoal Bay, skirting Gonzales Head on the
east side, ancl so form a continuous Marine Drive to connect with Shoal Bay,
the Golf Links Eoad, Beach Drive ancl
so on as far north as that road may ulti-.
mately be extended. The Week commends this project to public consideration,
ancl is satisfied that whatever it may cost
now, it will cost a great deal more in a
few years' time, when it will become absolutely imperative.
OF PUBLIC INTEREST
One of the most important cases which
has been in the courts for a long time is
under investigation before the Police Magistrate of Victoria at the time of writing.
It is impossible at the present stage to
make any comment on the merits of the
case, but The Week would draw public attention to the fact that the prosecution of
Lehman for stealing coal from Kirk & Co.
is one in which every citizen of Victoria
has a vital interest, and the case should be
followed carefully until the conclusion is
reached. Everybody buys coal, ancl everybody thinks tliat it is dear, even when full
weight is received. It is obviously a great
deal dearer when the teamster or the coal
dealer cheats the house-holder out of several sacks to the ton, and even dearer still
when a consumer is robbed of several tons
in a car load. According to thc evidence
already adduced the Fairview Nurseries
were robbed of an appreciable quantity of
coal from their consignments. It makes
very little difference to them who got it;
they didn't. When the case is finished the
public will be able to judge where the
danger lies, and it is not improbable that
a very interesting side-light will be
thrown on the fuel question. Meanwhile,
one of the most significant features of the
issue is that the daily press is following its
usual custom of giving the scantiest and
vaguest reports of a case which appeals to
the pockets of the public ancl which it
might be supposed is of sufficient importance to receive special attention.
COMING TO THEIR SENSES
It is only a few short weeks since the
members of a Vancouver Delegation were
baiting the Attorney-General and bringing
ridicule upon themselves by their vagaries
in the Parliament Buildings at Victoria,
ancl all because the chief Law Adviser of
the Government refused to sanction the
compulsory annexation of South Vancouver to Vancouver by legislative enactment.
The Week pointed out at the time that if
annexation were so desirable the remedy
lay in the hands of the people themselves,
and that interference on the part of tlie
Government would be arbitrary ancl unnecessary. It pointed out that under the existing law all that was necessary to effect
annexation was for the citizens of South
Vancouver to vote in favour by a three-
fifths majority, and those of Vancouver by
a bare majority, and the desired result
would be achieved. After working off their
superfluous indignation the active, members of the Delegation have realized that
this is the only constitutional method and
now Soutli Vancouver is arranging to take
a vote on the matter. If "Barkis" also "is
willin'," the union can be effected.
AN EXCELLENT RULE
The Week was the first paper to urge
Manager Denham to exclude late-comers
from tlie theatre during the progress of
the play. It is quite willing, however, to
allow tbe lead of the daily press in expressing the utmost satisfaction at the action
whicli lie has seen fit to take. It is just as
easy *o be in the theatre at 8:30 as at 8 ;45,
as was well-demohstratecl on Thursday
night when a packed house witnessed a
most delightful presentation of "The Arcadians." It was particularly noticeable
that a few obstreperous late-comers who
kicked at the rule on Monday night, and
insisted on forcing their way into the
front row by using their weight, took care
to be on time on Thursday night and walked in with the crowd as innocently as if
they had never been late in their lives. If
Manager Denham could go a step further
and devise some means of preventing loud
conversation during the progress of the
play he would deserve, and would undoubtedly receive, another medal to hang beside
the one which decorates the walls of his
office upon which is inscribed "For Valour."
THE AUTOMOBILE SHOW
The Automobile Show held at the Drill
Hall this week is easily the largest ancl
most important ever held in British Columbia. The character ancl excellence of
the Exhibit is the subject of general commendation, and the thousands of people
who have flocked to sec the latest production in the vehicle of convenience ancl of
pleasure have come away determined to be
in the fashion. Of course, tlie object of
the Exhibition is primarily to sell motorcars and it is gratifying to learn that a
snlendid business has been done, but in
the view of The Week thc educational aspect of the Exhibition is by far its most
important feature, and the vehicle which,
despite the strenuous efforts of a small
section of the community to make it unpopular and arouse public hostility is daily
becoming a common necessity, will be popularised by the demonstration made in the
Drill Hall. The Exhibition was under
the management of Mr. Clifford Denham.
LIBERALISM
The Victoria Times is working off some
very startling material those days in connection with its frantic efforts to furnish
the Eeciprocity pill with a sugar coating.
Among its many ill-considered utterances
is the following:—"In this matter of freedom of trade the Liberalism of Great
Britain ancl Canada are at one."   Ye gods
and little fishes! The Liberalism of Canada, as expounded by the Laurier Administration, has adopted the principle of the
National policy of Protection as initiated
by Sir John A. Macdonald. The Liberalism of England, as expounded by Premier Asquith and Lloyd George, has
fought three recent elections on the principle of Free Trade and in opposition to
any species of Tariff Eeform. No doubt
the Victoria Times can reconcile this apparent contradiction, but for the benefit of
those who do not possess its omniverous acquaintance with trade matters it should
accompany such startling pronouncements
with the explanation, ancl so save its
readers a too strenuous exercise in mental
gymnastics.
CONGRATULATIONS
The Worswick Paving Company is to
be congratulated on having secured so
large a share of the paving contracts of
the city in open competition. The city is
also to be congratulated on placing its
contracts with a company which is doing
such excellent work, and which is saving
the city so many thousands of dollars in
comparison with the next nearest tender.
The advent of the Westrumite Company
will enable the citizens to form a comparison between the two classes of paving,
but The Week will be very greatly surprised if the Worswick Company does not
continue to maintain its supremacy. Its
material is first-class, its process scientific
ancl the management of the Company
reasonable ancl straight-forward. While
The Week heartily favours competition, it
also believes in staying with the firm that
has given satisfaction, ancl it is „afe to
say that no firm has ever done better .
work in Victoria, or become more firmly
established in the public confidence than
the Worswick Paving Company.
THE CANADIAN CLUB
On Tuesday next Dr. J. A.. Mm-Donald, I
Editor of the Toronto Globe, will address, I
the Canadian Club.   In making this an-|
nouncement a local contemporary might|
well have gone a little further   and   expressed the wish that Dr. MacDonald willl
refrain from making any reference to thel
Eeciprocity Treaty, especially in view of[
its very justifiable indignation at the indiscretion of Mr. Ellis Barker.   Dr. Mac-'
Donald is admittedly a man of great abil-l
ity, who could address the Canadian Clubl
on a dozen topics of importance and of in-l
terest, but he is such a rabid politician!
that his address can hardly fail to arouse,
opposition if he approaches within a hun-|
dred miles of a political topic.   The stancj
of the Toronto Globe on the Eeciprocitji
question is so intensely partizan that il
has alienated the sympathy of all men o[
moderate views, and of not a few of thj
independent newspapers of the Dominioi
GOING AHEAD
To parody a popular eulogism the citij
zens of Victoria can well be imagined
exclaiming   "What's   the   matter   wit!
Topp ?   He's all right."   For   while tt
Mayor, the City Solicitor, the City Bail
rister ancl the City Council have been choj|
ping logic on law, hc has been "rushing hif
survey to completion" and in a week cl
ten clays the citizens of Victoria will wakl
u]i, rub tlieir eyes and see Mr. Topp's rJ
port in the local papers; that is if thel
havc the enterprise to   secure   it.   Then
will be satisfaction   that   after   so muc|
talky-talky Mr. Topp will be able to repot
"something attempted, something done!
Let us hope that for once the Mayor atj
Council Avill emulate such admirable cele
ity and "get busy" with the report. NobocJ
will object to pay Mr. Topp a respectab
fee if the work is properly done, the Mai
or's yeto notwithstanding.
THANKS
,It is officially announced that the Chil
of Police has decided that criminals on ll
ing liberated from the Hillside Aveni
Gaol after having been brought from tj
Mainland to serve sentences here, will
returned to Vancouver. This decision m\
or may not have been influenced by t|
vigorous protest of The Week against tail
ing these outside criminals loose upoiil
law-abiding community, but in any evel
it is a simple act of justice to see that tl
are deported.
