KING EDWARD
At the moment of going to press the
sad news of the death of the King has just
been flashed over the cables to Victoria, and
simultaneously in every part of the civilized
world there will be a pause in the day's
occupation, and men and women will pay
the passing tribute of a sigh to the memory
of a man who was every inch a man and
every inch a King. There could be no
higher praise, and no truer eulogium for
King Edward than that he worthily maintained the glorious traditions established by
his illustrious and revered mother. For
ten years he has been permitted by an
All-wise Providence to rule over the greatest
Empire of which the world has knowledge;
and he has done this with a daily increasing respect for his pre-eminent abilities
and for his personal character. Years ago
he earned the title of "Peacemaker," and
possibly it was only by his passing that we
shall learn how potent has been his influence in the preservation of peace. The
time is all too short, and it is yet too soon,
in the distraction of so sudden and unexpected a bereavement, to collect one's
thoughts, still less to appraise the virtues
and claims of the sleeping King; but there
will be no man proud to be called Briton,
and no man who loves the Empire, and no
man who appreciates the wisdom and the
graciousness of King Edward's rule, who
will not sorrow tonight.
EXONERATING THE CHIEF
Judge Lampman's Report, which was
referred to in the last issue of The Week,
and also briefly commented upon by the
local press, completely exonerates the Police Commissioners from any charge of
complicity in graft. It is a little singular,
however, that the daily papers did not
think it necessary to enlarge upon that portion of the report which dealt more particularly with the Chief of Police and the members of his staff. While the Commission
was one directing Judge Lampman "to enquire into all actions of the Commissioners
of Police for the City of Victoria for the
year 1910," it naturally devolved that the
conduct of the Chief of Police was brought
into question. This was inevitable because
of his intimate association with the Police
Commissioners, whose executive officer he
is; and also because it was impossible to
probe into any matter connected with the
administration of the law without canvassing the conduct and methods of those to
whom its administration is entrusted. It
is only fair to say that Chief Langley and
the official members of his staff, including
such well-known officers as Perdue and
Palmer, come out of the enquiry in every
way ns creditably as the Police Commissioners themselves; and since the comments
of the Commissioner with respect to the
latter were published verbatim, his comments with respect to the Chief of Police
and liis staff should also be published. In
referring to the attempt made in the early
part of this year to suppress gambling in
Chinatown, the report says:—
"As to Mayor Morley: Shortly after
his election he met Mr. Lee Mon Kow,
an influential Chinaman, and asked him
to co-operate with him in improving conditions in Chinatown, and particularly in
regard to the gambling, the idea being
that some of the leading Chinamen
should endeavour to have the Chinese
gaming houses closed down. The Mayor
and Mr. Lee Mong Kow had a few conversations on the matter, and eventually
the Mayor says, Mr. Lee Mong Kow informed him that the merchants fell in
with the suggestion, and that the gambling would cease. The Mayor was carrying on these negotiations independently
of the other Commissioners, but the whole
thing was quite harmless—there was
certainly no evidence of any wrongdoing.
"About the same time, Chief of Police
Langley and Inspector Palmer, accompanied by an interpreter, made a tour
through Chinatown, and issiieij warnings
to all places suspected of being gaming
houses. That some rivalry existed between the Mayor and the Chief as to who
was entitled to the credit of putting a
stop to the gambling was apparent, but
without wishing to detract from the
Mayor's effort I must say that I
WOULD RATHER DEPEND ON THE
METHOD TAKEN BY THE CHIEF.
It is only fair to the Mayor to say that
he only adopted his method after he had
about concluded that the others that had
been tried before were futile.
manner in which the adjudication was
arrived at and conveyed to Chief Langley than with the adjudication itself;
but the Chief was the only one who had
anything to do with it who took what
I venture to think was the correct view.
When the woman bought the house, the
Chief told her she had invaded a street
outside the restricted district and she
would not be allowed to open up. By
their action (in allowing the prosecution
to drop) the majority of the Commissioners have added that particular part
of Discovery street to the restricted district. * * * That the decision of the
Commissioners was communicated to the
Chief in an informal way, and over-rode
his view, Mayor Morley seemed to think,
' was akin to a slight on him, but I think
-the other Commissioners have more cause
to complain at certain acts of the Mayor,
. as shown in his correspondence with the
.-Chief, as there is no record that
this correspondence was ever laid
before or brought to the attention
of   the   Board,   or   that   the   request
THE STRANGE FRUIT
John Bull—I know a Naval Orange, but this is a Naval Lemon.
"That the Mayor's method of 'moral
suasion' and the Chief's method of
threatening a raid occurred at about the
same time would have been unfortunate
were it not for the fact that the two
methods combined stopped the gambling
for only a few days. Otherwise, if the
different methods had been employed at
different times some useful data as to
their relative merits might have been
obtained."
The preference expressed by Judge
Lampman for the constitutional methods
adopted by the Chief, as compared with
the jejune innovation of the Mayor, will
not escape the notice of attentive readers.
Commenting on a case whicli arose in connection with the intended prosecution of a
woman who had located on Discovery street,
and which attracted considerable attention
in consequence of the evidence adduced
at the enquiry, the report says:
"This case was discussed pretty thoroughly before me by all three Commissioners, and especially by the Mayor,
who seemed to find more fault with the
hereinafter referred to was ordered by
the  Board.   For instance,  on  the 4th
March lie requested (by letter) the Chief
to put a detective on a certain assignment and stated his preference as to the
officer.   The Mayor pointed out that lie
signed his* letters as Mayor, and not in
his capacity as Police Commissioner, but
by law he has no jurisdiction over the
Chief except in his capacity as Police
Commissioner.   At any rate, this idea of
a dual capacity is making a very fine
distinction, and I notice that the Chief's
letter in reply is addressed to 'His Worship the Mayor, Chairman of the Board
of Police Commissioners.' "
The foregoing extract is a further testimony to the intelligence and perspicuity
of the Chief, who, in the most delicate manner possible, intimated that His Worship
the Mayor had, in this particular instance,
misconceived  his   true  position.   In   concluding his report, Judge Lampman effectually  explodes  the  theory  which   Mayor
Morley has time and again advanced,—that
he, and he alone, is the true moral re
former in the circle of the Police Commissioners. That the Board has acted in
good faith, and with a due sense of its responsibilities to the public in permitting a
restricted district cannot be questioned;
but that any one Commissioner can adopt
the attitude which is best expressed by the
phrase, "I am holier than thou," is preposterous in view of the finding of the report as contained in the following pregnant sentence:
"Now,  in  coming  to  the  conclusion
that the Commissioners have not acted
improperly, I have not been unmindful of
the fact that they have ALL countenanced  the  policy  of  allowing  common
bawdy houses to run openly in the restricted district."
From a perusal of the report, it is
clear that Judge Lampman considers that
on the whole the Police affairs of the city
are administered in an admirable manner,
and the result of the enquiry cannot but
be regarded as a triumph for Chief Langley and the members of his staff.   In spite
of repeated slanders on the part of those
who ought to know better, if they do not,
Victoria is undoubtedly one of the safest
cities in Canada, and it would be difficult,
if not impossible, to find a place where the
law is held in higher respect, or its provisions more reasonably enforced.
THE CANADIAN NAVY
If anyone is in doubt as to the precise
market value of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's Canadian "Navee," he should read the interview with Mr. G. H. Barnard, M.P., published in yesterday's Colonist. He points
out that the most serious objection to this
patchwork policy is that, if there ever
arises an emergency calling for the defence
of the Empire, the Naval Construction Bill
will not help the situation at all. It has
been practically admitted by the Government that it will not he less than six years
before the ships can be completed. It will
take about two years to build shipyards,
and another four to build the ships.
Therefore, Mr. Barnard observes, "So far
as being of any immediate assistance to the
Empire, the Bill does not nmount to anything." But this does not exhaust his
very pertinent criticism, for he shews that,
when Naval Defence was discussed at a
Conference with the Admiralty last year,
it was clearly set forth that the best thing
Canada could do would be to contribute a
Fleet Unit and station it on the Pacific
Coast. The Admiralty pointed out that the
essential part of the a Fleet Unit was a
Dreadnought battleship, and it was made
clear then that the idea of the Admiralty
was to have the unit stationed on the
Pacific Coast. Now lhe Government has
dropped the Dreadnought altogether, and
decided to put the bulk of the ships on
the Atlantic Coast, which is only five days'
steam from headquarters, and not seriously
in need of protection. No doubt the Hon.
William Templeman will applaud the decision of the Government, in spite of the
fact that such decision minimizes the importance of Esquimalt ns a Naval base.
As the Times studies the very incisive and
caustic comments of Mr. Barnard, it will
probably modify the opinion which it has
expressed as to his ineffectiveness on the
floor of the House. The fact is that Mr.
Barnard is making good, and shewing that
he is not only capable of taking a broad
and statesmanlike view of public questions,
hut that he is always keenly alive to the
interests of his constituents. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 7, 1910
At The Street   $
Corner i
By THE LOUNGER /*
In the present matter of fact days
we like to know the reason and
wherefor of everything which takes
place, and anything extraordinary, or
abnormal, we seek for an explanation
in the nearest and most handy cause,
and so long as we settle on something
tangible, or intangible, we are for the
time being satisfied. Just now Hal-
ley's Comet is responsible for a great
many things which in the ordinary
course of events would be unnoticed
or merely regarded as slightly out
of the ordinary. If our favourite
speckled hen lays an abnormally large
egg, Halley's Comet is responsible, if
the garden plants do not thrive as
they did about this time last year,
and show signs of blight, poor old
Halley's Comet is again dragged up
as the culprit for this vagary of the
flowers. Halley's Comet can be seen
somewhere about 2.30 a.m., and the
other morning after carefully setting
the alarm clock for 2.15 I retired. I
awoke with a start, that infernal machine, designed by some ruthless murderer of sleep, was tingling merrily;
I looked at my watch and wondered
what it was ringing for, and was on
the point of flinging the wretched
thing to the other end of the room
and piling all the available furniture
on it to keep it quiet when I remembered Halley's Comet. I crawled out
of bed and donning a dressing gown
and slippers, I went to the window
and gazed pensively at the stars. I
saw a lot of stars, but they did not
seem to be anything exciting about
them, I mean they were not wildly
hilarious, or trailing about with tails,
or anything like that. Suddenly I
was startled by an unearthly yell
which seemed to come from the garden below—could it be some poor
soul in torment, but no, it was only
a philandering Thomas who was
browsing in the realms of minstrel
joy seeking his lady-love, who, perchance, was peering at him from a
neighbouring roof. Throwing a
flower pot at him, I retired back to
bed again, grievously disappointed at
seeing no strange phenomenon, and
thinking Halley's Comet greatly
over-rated.

Now that we are getting the grand
weather for which Victoria is so justly famous; we have our water songsters again. I don't mean the birds
but the dear old frog; he can be heard
nightly and seems to enjoys himself
immensely. I wonder why he croaks,
or for that reason why does any kind
of animal croak or chirp, or bellow,
or make any other sound? Is it for
the pure pleasure of living or are
they talking to one another?   A man
once had a cage built and tried to
study the monkey language in Central Africa, but only succeeded in
finding out that one word or sound
recurred continually so that mankind
generally is no nearer in learning the
language of animals. One often
wonders what the domestic cat would
say first if it could suddenly speak;
the parrot we know is given to using
profane language; this seems to be
its favourite pastime. I once heard
a man make rather a neat speech, he
was the recipient of a gift and in expressing his thanks he said; "A cat
can purr, and a dog can wag his tail
to show his appreciation, but a human
being can only say thank you." In
the same way perhaps the frog is
croaking to let us know his gladness
that the summer has come back
again, he might even be singing in
another language: "Thc Spring has
come, the Spring has come."

The new wharf for the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway affords a great
deal of curiosity and every day one
can see a group, of a score or more
people leaning over the railings on
Wharf Street and watching the oper-
tions. The dredger too, is interesting
to watch, the huge crane which hurries itself under the water shortly to
reappear carrying in it capacious maw,
mud and stones and rubbish which it
deposits on a lighter by opening its
jaws is quite fascinating, and reminds
one of a primeval monster of the
deep.

The Empress Hotel is in course of
time going to possess a garden which
will be one of the sights of Victoria.
Right in front, facing the water, there
is not much floral decoration for the
reason that the wind does not allow
anything to flourish in such an unsheltered spot, but the wallflowers
close round the Hotel itself are gorgeous and seem to revel in their sun
bath sheltered from the wind. At the
back there is every variety of flower
and young rose trees, and to think
that this land was once a swamp only
goes to prove what- can be done with
capital and perseverance. Probably
many people have not noticed the tiny
waterfall and lake on the north front.
The lake, which is about five feet deep
in its deepest part, contains some
trout. After the new extension to the
Hotel is finished a bowling green will
be laid out on the north front which
should prove an added attraction. The
Empress has lately lost her genial
manager, Mr. Humble, who, during
the time he held office, made himself
generally popular. The Hotel is now
in the capable hands of Mr. Jackson
who, before coming to the Empress,
was at the Banff Hotel, and is also
deservedly popular.

Victoria is a city of surprises. I
was entertained in a real houseboat
the other night. There were no geraniums, or singing birds on the roof,
but I almost imagined I was back at
Henley except that I missed the soft,
silvery beauty of old Father Thames
by night, and saw the soap works in
the distance. The approach to the
Saucy Anne was perilous in the extreme, in one place a narrow gangway, round a tortuous corner where
one's fate hung in the balance, was
the only method of gaining the vessel. After partaking of the liberal
hospitality of mine hosts this method
of reaching terra firma did not appeal
to me at all, as the water looked wet
and cold. However, "all's well that
ends well," and I regained the shore
in safety.

Toronto World, (Nov. 5th, 1000)—
Iwas fitting, the honours went to
Miss Maclachlan, who displayed a remarkably melodious voice, which she
used with all the graces that belong
to accomplished vocalism. She is a
finished artist; her interpretation of
sentiment is psychologically true; her
vocal nuances in the expression of the
thought and emotion of a given song
are thoroughly artistic. And above
all her singing has the distinguishing
quality of soul fervor. She is indeed,
even if she is not heralded as a Mel-
ba, Sembrich or Gadski, a great vocalist, the people's songstress. .
Miss Maclachlan is to be felicitated
over the fact that she proved by her
lovely vocalism how true it is that
the Celts are the supreme melodists
of the world.
New Grand Theatre
One of the best known novelties
known in vaudeville in recent years
is the musical surprise, "A Yard of
Music," to be presented by Bouton
& Tillson at the Grand next week.
They not only render musical selections in a unique order, but are incomparable instrumentalists and their
renditions are beautiful, and worth
going a long way to hear. The scene
is that of a farm yard, with all the
necessary farm implements lying
about, which later turn out to be
musical instruments bringing forth
wholesome melody.
Vaudeville's top-notch Vocal (4) is
the Trocadero Quartette, who are to
be here next week. Every member
of this organization is a soloist and
every one of the musical numbers
whether solo, or quartette, are immensely effective. They have a faculty of gathering in, the latest and
best songs and introducing them in a
manner that makes them sung and
whistled all over town. A particular
feature in this number is the rendition of four different melodies at the
same time harmonizing.
Two of the best people in the head
balancing line are Fields and Co-Co.
Their feats consist of remarkable balancing from head to head and hand
to hand as well as executing some of
j the most astounding feats known to
J the world.   This feature will be one
of the big numbers next week.

On Monday and Tuesday some
thrilling films portraying the emotional side of the human character
will be portrayed at this bright little
Theatre and to picture lovers they
should prove a source of real entertainment, "The Love of Lady Irma"
and "The Eleventh Hour," are two
intensely dramatic situations which
are well spoken of in the press as
possessing unique features of interest.
Empress Theatre
This theatre continues its well deserving success and the full houses
which are attracted nightly speak well
for its popularity. The $20 gold piece
is a great attraction, and this, combined with the excellence of the pictures and the music are the reasons
of its well earned success.
A Gilt Edged Investment
The Week has recently stated on
the highest authority that the Victoria
Banks hold on deposit no less a sum
than 21,000,000. They pay three per
cent, interest on this amount which
totals $630,000 a year. The Banks reinvest this amount in the Canadian
Northwest and on call loans in New
York, and it is generally accepted
that it earns an average of 12 to 15
per cent. The depositor could just
as easily place his own money in a
gilt edged investment as secure as
the bank and realise 8 per cent., but
in Victoria hc has 110 ambition to do
so. Just why Victoria capitalists arc
willing to sacrifice $i,050,$oo every
year, the difference between 3 per
cent, and 8 per cent, on their $21,-
000,000 deposits is not easy to understand. If they were looking for call
loans in New York or indeed for any
speculative investment no doubt they
would require the assistance of an expert financier to enable them to steer
clear of risky ventures, but when it
comes to bona fide investments in
enterprises which have no clement
of speculation and about which they
know as much as the Banks, it is
hardly necessary to pay the latter a
premium of 5 per cent, for placing
their money. There are certain
stocks which are recognized in financial circles as secure, such as Bank
stock, trust stock, fire and life insurance stock. Of all of these the stock
of a well established Fire Insurance
Company is at once the safest and
thc most profitable. Among Fire Insurance Companies there is none
which stands higher than the Pacific

Coast Company whatever test may be
applied. Its President, Mr, T. T.
Langlois, is recognized as one of the
leading financiers of the Province, he
is supported by a Board of Directors
such as no other Company can produce. Every Director is conspicuously a successful business man and
the most conspicuous of them all is
the Hon. Richard McBride, the Premier. The Company can point to a
successful history, having traded under the present management for eight
years and the management is admittedly the most expert engaged in the
business of fire insurance. Of late
years much has been said about the
need for more western financial institutions. The West has too long relied upon the East and has paid too
clearly for the privilege of exporting
its own currency for re-investment in
the older provinces. There is no reason why western money could not be
rc-investcd where it is made, and
every institution which furnishes an
opportunity for this on safe and reasonable terms is a public benefactor
and is helping to lay deeper and
broader the foundations upon whicii
the newest, furthest west world is being built up. Among such institutions
there is not one more worthy of confidence than the Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Company, which is already
doing so well. It is an established,
profitable business and is for the first
time giving the general public an opportunity to acquire stock and to take
a hand in managing their own insurance. Every dollar which the public
receives as a bonus or dividend on its
insurance stock is a dollar written off
from the actual cost of insurance;
when business men realise this
fact they will take their insurance
to a company in whicii they hold
stock themselves, and so secure thc
full benefit of an outlay which is at
once a protection and an investment.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Still Rusticating
By Bohemian
I fancy a good many people living
in Victoria and Vancouver, to say
nothing of the dwellers in the Upper
Country, would be more than surprised could they realise how rapidly
development is progressing in the interior of the Island. Five years ago
the main road between Nanaimo and
Alberni was deserted, save for the
daily passing of the stage and the infrequent journeys of ranchers to the
nearest settlement to buy supplies.
"Mais nous avons change tout cela,"
and now it is the exception rather
than the rule to walk three miles
without encountering some vehicle,
mechanical or otherwise, speeding to
or from Nanaimo. Labour is being
brought over from the Mainland at
present at the rate of over sixty men
a week. From the steamer they are
instantly transported to an I. X. L.
wagonette, and speedily driven off
nearly thirty miles to a place of safety, to be conducted without delay to
the scene of their labours in the vicinity of Cameron Lake and The
Summit. Like Charles II, after the
death of old Noll, Vancouver Island is
on the verge of coming into its own.
I wonder whether other Old Countrymen are as much struck as I always am, when out of town, by the
comparative absence of sheep in the
pastures. At first it took me a long
time to realise exactly what it was
that was lacking; in fact I never did
realise it until I happened to come
across a few specimens of the genus
mutton. Of course as long as we have
cayuses, no, it's coyotes I mean, and
panthers and other savage epicures,
I suppose real live sheep are bound
to be a somewhat minus quantity.
However, if they are lacking in the
open, it cannot be denied that there
are plenty of the black variety to be
found in the cities and towns, whilst
shearing is still an art, albeit somewhat on the wane, under the style
and cognomen of "fleecing."
'Tis May ist on which I am writing; a glorious First of May. A deep
blue sky, an equally blue and unruffled sea, a balmy breeze, an unclouded sun and the everlasting mountains still capped with snow;—add
the humming of insect life, a distant
cow-bell;—what could be more perfect? I wish that I had a copy of
Gray's Elegy with me; it is the ideal
afternoon on which to read it, and
then to ponder in the post-prandial
soporific state which is so sweetly induced by good living and fine
weather, on all the thoughts of the
past, present and future, which the
poem inspires. But alas, nothing in
this world is perfect and this afternoon it is a bumble-bee which is turning my pleasure into ashes and rendering impossible the real dolce far
niente which I am endeavouring to
achieve. There is something peculiarly annoying about a bumble-bee
at close quarters. __t).-iis the epitome
of inquisitiveness; he reminds me of
a fat female trotting along on the
scent of scandal, and though he is
said to differ from her, in that he does
not leave a sting behind, I have never
had the courage to pick one up to
make sure. He is also a source of
mental worry to me, as after an interview with him I invariably find myself pondering as to whether Charles
Dickens named the beadle for the
bee, or whether the bee was raised to
the ranks of the hyphenated in memory of the beadle.
I always wish that Tennyson had
never written those verses about the
conceited little creature whom her
misguided school-fellows had chosen
to be Queen of the May. I plead
guilty to a general dislike of poetry;
I believe it is constitutional, and I
have a very strong idea that it is inherited. I believe that, to use the
correct expression, I lack the soul to
appreciate it. I have tried to write
verses myself, and some of you may
have been fortunate enough to see
specimens in these columns, but the
Editor is always very cruel about
them and says that I have no ear for
rythm. However, that may be, I do
like Tennyson, always excepting that
May Morning horror. It affects me in
the same way that some hymns do.
If I go to Church and the hymn list
includes "We Plough the Fields and
Scatter," or "A Few More Years
Shall Roll," I am far better outside
than in. I feel sure that the vain
child of whom the Laureate wrote
was the best hated girl in the village
when evening shadows fell on May
ist.
But May Day festivities in those
times were more natural than they
are now. How I hate the artificial
May Day celebrations of the present
time, when children are laboriously
trained to dance and sing what time
they weave colonial ribbons into fantastic combinations. The charm of
the olden customs was the spontaneity
and lack of affectation, except in the
case of Tennyson's May Queen, which
characterised them. But the age of
spontaneity is past, and in its place
come artifice and set device.
Law Students Debate
The long pending debate between
the law students of B. C. and Washington will take place next Saturday
night, May 13th, in the Carnegie Hall.
The subject for debate is: "Resolved,
that Free Trade would be more beneficial to the people of U. S. than a
system of protective tariffs." The B.
C. law students have selected as their
spokesmen Messrs. D. S. Tait and
Sears. The debate will be an interesting one and the public will be
welcomed.
Mr. Wilkerson Returns
Mr. W. H. Wilkerson, the jeweler,
has returned after a six weeks' purchasing trip to the east, having met
in Toronto, Montreal and New York
representatives of the leading European, American and Canalian manufacturers of all goods pertaining to
his business. Some very extensive
purchases in diamonds were made by
him, direct from the Amsterdam cut
ters, and in Buffalo he procured the
very latest and most up-to-date tools
for his factory which is now second
to none on this coast. Mr. Wilkerson
distributed through the East a quantity of pamphlets in the interests of
the Vancouver Island Development
League, having had a great many inquiries about Victoria and th*. Island.
The easterners can hardly realize the
climatic conditions of Vancouver
Island, as Mr. Wilkerson puts it, "the
finest spot on the continent of America," which, he declares, he is glad
to get back to.
The City of the North
Public interest continues to centre
in Stewart, the coming city of the
North. Since the last issue of The
Week a record price has been established by the sale of one lot on
Eighth avenue for $2,800. As the date
of the Government sale draws near
it is more than ever obvious that
there will be a rush for lots and that
the prices realised will be startling.
This will be due to the restricted area
available for building purposes and
to the fact that there is no longer
any doubt that Stewart will be the
headquarters of a permanent mining
camp.
The Oriental Trading Company
During the last three or four weeks
the ladies of Victoria have been supplementing their stock of rare apparel
by depleting the stock of the Oriental
Trading Company. The time has gone
by when any lady in Victoria is content to dress with inartistic goods.
In this city of great prosperity, and
in this day of exceptional progress
men are determined that their women-
kind shall have the best that money
can procure, and by common consent
the most delightful, artistic, and alluring fabrics must be sought in the
Orient. The stiff cottons, and linens,
of years ago have given place to the
soft luxurious fabrics which form the
staple of the Oriental trade and today Pongee silk and Crepe de Chine
are indispensable to the wardrobe of
every lady of fashion. The time honoured dressing gown of severe cut
and wall-paper design has been entirely supcrseeded by the graceful kimono, without which no lady's trousseau is complete. The Oriental Importing Co. have ransacked the bazaars of Hong Kong, Canton and
Yokohama in order to furnish their
Victoria customers with the best that
money can buy. This company carries the largest stock of Pongee in
the Dominion and the last length
must be disposed of before the sale
closes tonight.   The prices have been
brought within the reach of the mostl
modest purse and any Victoria girll
who wants a dainty Summer dress|
at a modest price will have only herself to blame if she misses this op-|
portunity.

Via Amoris
'Twas through the fragrant woods of
May
They wandered long ago,
'Neath   boughs  with  apple-blossoms
flushed,
Or chilled with cherry's snow.
Two  friends  were  by her side  that
day,
And filled the groves with  song;
While Life was naught but light and
flowers,
So, gay they danced along.
She  turned  from  Spring's  far dome
of blue,
To gaze in Love's deep eyes;
And saw within that sapphire shrine
A fairer heaven rise.
A slender hand then touched her own,
A golden voice laughed low;
While Youth's bright hair in radiance
gleamed
'Neath May's soft wreaths of snow.
The wistful shades of twilight fell,
The blue eyes smiled "Good-bye."
"And  must   we  part?"   she  sighing
said—
"Ah, well, one friend have I."
She turned to clasp a comrade true,
But  Youth  escaped her hold;
The distant hills one moment glowed
As flashed her hair of gold.
Beyond the purple peaks they passed,
Beyond the ocean blue.
How could she know when Love had
gone
That Youth must leave her too?

The "HOT POINT" Electric Iron
Will Satisfy Anyone
The tremendous success the Hot Point electric iron has made
in the households of the country is because this iron was first
constructed to meet the exact requirements of laundry service.
An electric iron that will satisfy a laundryman will satisfy anyone.
It must be able to stand up under continuous service, be hot enough
to handle all classes of work, use the current economically, be
convenient, easy to handle and quickly repaired. This is an exact
illustration of the Hot Point Electric Iron. It makes ironing
pleasant work. It saves money, steps, time, trouble, temper and
perspiration. It makes the "maid" contented because she can
iron faster and better and have more time to herself. It is a
wonderful boon to the "mistress" because she can attach it to the
electric light socket on the back porch during the war weather
and iron her costly lace, that she will not trust to other hands, in
comfort.
Most up-to-date women now-a-days carry an Electric Iron with them when travelling.. It has become a
necessity. For this, the "Hot Point" has many commendable features. Call here and see it in operation. We
allow ten days' free trial to Victorians.

The Recent Revision
"i; The Voters' List at present in use
is the result of the applications made
since 1903. Its size at present is a
fair indication of the continuous
growt|t and is perhaps the cleanest
Voters' List in British Columbia.
When a person once applies to go on
the List, he remains on until he makes
application to the Registrar to have
it removed, or unless it is objected, to
by a voter who has the knowledge
that the voter has ceased to reside in
the district for a period of six months.
With almost a condition of things
amounting to Manhood Suffrage, the
Government only requiring that an
applicant should be of the full age of
21, a resident in the province for six
months, and a British subject of thc
male sex, every opportunity is offered
to make it easy to register the eligible
voter. However, with great opportunities and the rapid upbuilding of
the Province, men are continuously
moving round, and oftentimes through
ignorance of the law, persons make
application to go on the Voters' List
without applying for a transfer from
the Registrar of Voters in their former riding. The several parties in thc
province keep a strict vigil on thc
absentee voter, and more especially on
the duplicate. Many voters and especially those in Victoria, feel they have
to make application to go on the list
every year on account of the law in
relation to the municipal voter, who
has to do so. This year objections
were laid to over 1,100 names and the
withdrawals, amounting to about 135,
shows that a commendable attempt is
being made to strip the List of all the
previous objectionable and invalid
votes. In Esquimalt 205 objections
were laid and of these over 190 were
sustained. In this work the representatives of both parties work in harmony and bears witness to the wise
legislation of the Government for regulating the machinery in connection
with the Voters' List.
Mr. Macintosh and Mr. Ditchburn
for the Liberals and Mr. W. H. Price,
the honorary secretary for the Conservatives, pay especial tribue to Mr.
Harvey Coombe, thc Registrar, for his
fairness and impartiality.

sttc Criticism of Victoria Schools
Editor of The Week:
r,—I wonder does it ever strike
of your readers, that there is a
it deal of time wasted by the
hers in the Public Schools in Vic-
la.
ne day last week I was visiting a
id, and her son, a boy of between
md 14 years, came from the Cen-
School with a small paper box.
: used to call them fly traps). His
5 had spent the greater part of
afternoon learning to make this
Were you to ask this boy how
h four times eight were he could
answer. Fancy a boy of near 14
ting his time on kindergarten
k! I am not alone in thinking we
paying a great deal too much to
teachers for the knowledge they
irt to our children. They give
1 home lessons, they don't under-
d and either parents or elder bro-
or sisters must teach them.
1 the paid instructors may look
and correct, that is if they have
, after they have read the morn-
paper, or done a little fancy
:, or they might, perchance, fan-
)me fruit, or candy, then a young-
is sent out to purchase the article
ed. After this it is to be eaten
all in school hours,
lere are very few children even
e high school can write an intel-
t letter.
id, Mr. Editor, did you read the
twaddle printed in the Colonist
ay? If not, I should like you to
iiear your opinion,
d we pay for this. It's time par-
rose in a body to stop the proof such teaching.
Yours truly,

The Cheapest City
Realty in the West
Is the distinction enjoyed by Victoria at the present time. Surrounded as it is with almost unlimited natural resources, with its beautiful climate and
excellent harbor, the first port of call for Canadian trans-Pacific liners, as well as for boats from the South and the North, Victoria is receiving the .
attention of speculators and investors from all parts of the Globe. This last few months they have been buying, and are still buying the choicest properties
Victoria has to offer. One of the greatest railroad men.in the West, and one who has taken more than a passing interest in Victoria and Vancouver Island
in general, said a few days ago: "Watch the South end of Vancouver Island. There will be an unprecedented rise in realty values, and the excitement
will be fully warranted." Within the next few years, .our most sanguine hopes of Victoria for that time will not only be realized, but eclopsed. It is up
to you to ' Get in with the winners," "Boost for your home town," and share in the prosperity of the next few years.
Below are a few carefully selected properties we have to offer. They are all in good locations, and in a direct line with civic improvements and the
trend of development. They can be bought with a feeling of security for immediate and future enhancement of values. We recommend them as being
Victoria's cheapest Eealty bargains, and incidentally THE CHEAPEST   IN   THE   WEST.
