THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1910
Dollak Pee Annum
HE FIRE
|Such a blaze as alarmed Victovia on
Kednesday night and cleared out nine-
|iths of the block bounded by Govern-
pnt, Fort, Broad and Trounce Avenue
llist of necessity work great hardship on
I number of people. To the tradesmen
id professionals, who lost heavily—some
them the accumulations of a lifetime—
lie Week extends its heartiest sympathy,
id perhaps this is due even more to the
reral hundred  persons   (mostly young
•Is) who were instantly thrown out of
liployment and will be obliged for a time
[get along as best they can without even
fe slender remuneration they have been
Imstonied to receive from their ern-
pyers. But ,"it is an ill wind that blows
{body good," and in the first instance the
ly, and in the next instance many of the
lividual traders themselves, will benefit
the destruction of unsafe and obsolete
foldings aiid their replacement by up-to-
Ite fireproof, sanitary structures. It is
liracteristic of the spirit of optimism
lich everyone in Victoria feels at the
j'sent time that there should be no ques-
lu of hesitancy or delay in rebuilding,
II it is safe to say that in less than a
|tr from date there will be no traces of
fire, and the most important and valu-
ne  section of Government  street ''will
pent an entirely new aspect, and one
keeping with the character of the Aew
Ictoria that is to be.    Tn commenting
Ion the fire, one's first duty is to join
the chorus of praise that bas been
|ished on every hand on the Fire Chief,
fire staff, the men from Work Point
Jtrracks,   and   other   volunteer   helpers,
lio made the best tight ever made against
|fire in Victoria, and succeeded beyond
expectations   in   confining  it  to  one
ock.   When all the conditions are taken
Ito account, the result achieved is won-
prful, because the  Department store in
liich the fire started was packed full of
le most inflammable material, and in a
[w minutes after it broke out was con-
|rted into a cauldron of flame of. enor-
lous area and right in the centre of the
ponied  block.    Nothing could  possibly
live stopped the fire after it started inside
le store.    No doubt the exact point of
nidation was in the basement, near the
nrth-west corner of the building.   In view
I' special evidence received by The AVeek
rom a member of its staff who was pass-
|g at the moment, it seems certain that,
Ihatever started the tire, it must have been
li riling in the basement for a consider-
Jble time;  but it ultimately ate its way
trough the floor, and when Mr. Litch-
leld and two girls who were passing saw
lie flames shooting up behind tbe counter
the gentlemen's wear department, the
re had just made its way through the
loor.    From tliat moment the store was
ponied, and the only point that needs to
elucidated, and which has not yet been
jiferrcd to in print, is whether the watch-
len made the same careful examination
the basement as they did of the floors;
lid also whether, as is alleged, they had
flier duties to perform, such as sweeping
lit, whicii would materially curtail the
line at their disposal for keeping a look-
lit.    Passing again to the Chief and his
laff,  it cannot be too emphatically re-
li-serted that the flre was fought with great
Itelligence and skill, and at the same time
lith a degree of indomitable courage and
Tavery that could not be excelled.    The
■Jnimanding voice of the Chief was heard
every point where danger threatened,
td   the  prompt   obedience  he   received
■ewed clearly tlie state of discipline that
|w exists in the force and the confidence
men have in their lender.   The writer
lis on the scene of the fire from  the
liment of its outbreak until it was prac
tically subdued; and having witnessed
many fires of far greater extent, he is prepared to say that, having regard to the
appliances available, he never saw better
work done. Three times the Chief, at
great personal risk, mounted to tbe top of
the ilelrose building and extinguished fire
which had started in the roof and which
was already causing sparks to fall inside
the upper rooms. His attention was first
called to this by Mr. William Wilson, of
the firm of A. & W. Wilson. Everyone
knows what would have happened if the
Melrose building had been enveloped, but
nobody knows whether anything iwonld
have been left between Fort and Humboldt. Now, a word as to the water supply: The daily press, animated by a desire to allay the susceptibilities of tbe fire
underwriters, is already trying to make
out that the water supply was adequate,
and points with pride to the fact that no
fewer than twenty-three streams were
poured on the burning mass. But this is
a total misrepresentation of the crucial
point, whicii is that the gravity pressure
shewed only GO lbs. and tbat at no time
did any of the streams, except those whicli
were being pumped, mount higher than
the window sills of tlie third floor, whicii
was about half-way up Spencer's store, and
much less than half-way up the west front
of the Driard Hotel. All tbe really effective work was done either by the engines or
by the hose whicli was carried up ladders
and allowed to discharge on the roofs of
the low buildings. The engines did splendid work, but more are required, at any
rate, until Victoria gets the Goldstream
water, which will give a gravity force
sufficient to carry any number of streams
on to the roofs of the highest buildings
in the city, lt was pitiful to see the puny
streams of water playing on the lower
storey, with the fire raging in the upper
unchecked and nnattacked; and ridiculous
to see flames on the tops of telephone
poles, and the window sashes of the Driard,
with the water falling thirty feet below,
when a very tiny stream would have extinguished the fire. The real stand was
made on Fort Street, where the firemen
were terribly scorched by the great beat
from the Five Sisters' block, but manfully stood tlieir ground and prevented the
fire getting any hold to the South. It is,
however, impossible not to speak strongly
of the old wooden buildings and shingle
roofs that are still permitted to remain in
this block. They are a menace to the
whole city, and public opinion will insist
that immediate steps be taken to remove
them. This applies in particular to the
stores reaching up to the Pemberton
block; also to a few old buildings fronting on Broughton street; and last, but by
no means least, to the roof of the Cusack
printing building, which is not only old
and dry, but moss-covered, and whicli, profiting by the lesson of the fire Mr. Cusack
has already arranged to have replaced by
sheet metal roofing. After every big fire
there is a lot of talk about the removal
of old buildings, lint very little is done.
Tlie Week is informed that this is due to
thc fact that the Council cannot order the
destruction of a building unless it is unsanitary, and that its jurisdiction extends
in other respects to the construction of new
buildings. If this is the case, the machinery cannot be too soon set in motion to
give the city increased powers. It is an
anachronism that it should be limited in
a direction that directly threatens the public safety. The Week heartily endorses
the suggestion of Mr. H. L. Salmon of a
Salvage corps, which could undoubtedly
have saved many thousands of dollars'
worth of stock on Wednesday night, especially all the valuable stock in the Five
Sisters' block, whieh had a lease of at least
one hour after the outbreak of the fire.
But such a corps should be one of volun
teers, under careful regulations and wearing a badge, and should be sufficiently
numerous to be effective, which is an impossibility with a paid corps of necessarily
restricted numbers. A final word of praise
is due to Chief Langley and the police
force for their excellent handling of the
crowd. Whilst protecting thousands of
eager sightseers who were naturally
anxious to witness what is, after all, a
glorious spectacle, they were uot unduly
aggressive. They gave all the latitude that
was reasonable, with the result that an excellent "entente" was established and uo
accidents happened. Let us hope that
there will he no more serious fires in
Victoria until the much-vexed water question has been finally settled. It is hardly
to be expected that we shall come out of
the next with as little loss and as much
credit as resulted from this one.
THE SONGHEES RESERVE
Premier McBride, no doubt to the
amazement of the Victoria Times, has been
able to effect what neither the Hon. Wm.
Templeman, Senator Riley, Ralph Smith,
R. L. Drury, or even W. E. Ditchburn,
could do—that is, bring about a settlement
of the Songhees Reserve question. If is
true that the Times claims the credit for
John Oliver, the political Cincinnatus who
returned to his plow after the last Provincial elections. But they said the same
with respect to the Barkley Sound Railway
when it was finally announced that after
all this was not "a fake proposition'" or a
"pipe-dream," but was actually going to be
built. The distressing part of it is that
none of these illustrious diplomats have
been able to impress the people, and, unfortunately for the contention of the
Times, the public will be disposed to give
all the credit to Premier McBride and
those who have assisted him to arrive at
such a satisfactory settlement. The AVeek
may be permitted to state that until a few
months ago it was the only paper tliat bad
persistently contended that the Songhees
Reserve question would never lie settled
until thc Indian was treated in exactly the
manner as if he were a white man. his full
claim of possession conceded, anil the full
market price for his holdings paid in cash.
Both Colonist and Times urged that hc
should be forced to move. It stated more
than a year ago tliat the amount of cash
required was $350,000, and it had the
fullest authority for making this statement. The advance from that figure to
$42(»,000 is due to the delay—a delay that
would have been much curtailed but for
the jejune performance of the Hon. Wm.
Templeman and Senator I iii v which culminated in that historic joy-ride immortalized in a AVeek cartoon.' When Sir AVilfrid Laurier was in A'ictoria hc administered a very obvious rebuke to these gentlemen, and told them plainly that they bad
"butted in" and that the Provincial Government was the proper authority to deal
with the question. Since then he has
been in correspondence with Premier McBride, in whom he has every confidence,
and with whom be is quite willing to leave
the negotiations. It is understood that he
is prepared to endorse any arrangement
concluded by Mr. McBride, and wc may
therefore hope in a very short time to see
the matter finally closed, and the Beserve
available for public use. The intention is
to present the City with at least fifteen
acres for a public park. The C. P. R. and
the C. A'. R. will between them acquire,
by purchase, all thc land they require for
a grand Union Station, opposite Johnson
street, additional sidings and docks for
the former, and a new line of docks for
the latter in Lion Bay and westerly therefrom. It is hoped that the south-west corner of Hospital Point will lie blasted away
and thus greatly improve the accommodation in the Inner harbor. The crowning
feature of this gigantic scheme is the'
building of a high level bridge for foot
and vehicular traffic from the bottom of
Johnson street to the nearest point on the
Reserve immediately Soutli of the present
E. & N. bridge. When this scheme is carried out in its entirety, as it will be within
tlie next four years, conditions in \rietoria
will be revolutionized. Tbe old city will
have put on a uew front, and when this almost inconceivable improvement has been
effected, the bad dream tbat has haunted
the city for so long iu the shape of the
Songhees Reserve ghost will almost have
been forgotten. It is a long way to look
ahead even for four years; but in view of
the chronic and traditional attitude of the
Victoria Times on all questions affecting
the policy of Premier McBride and his
colleagues, it may be permissible to wonder whether that venerable and antiquated
organ will still be deploring the fact that
"Mr. McBride has never done anything
for A'ictoria."
SIGNS OF THE TIMES
Among tbe significant signs of the times
is the gravitation of all the great legal
firms of the Province to A'ancouver.
Within the last three years, probably half
the legal gentlemen of the Kootenays have
removed to the Terminal City and are
making money so fast that they hardly
know what to do with it. Those who have
not actually removed have established affiliation with legal firms in A'ancouver, or
are opening branch offices of their own.
Among the latter thc most notable- is.the
firm of Bodwell & Lawson of Victoria.
For many years this firm has shared, with
that of Davis. Marshall & .McNeill, the
chief honours of the legal profession. In
almost any "cause celebre" one finds the
two brilliant heads of these firms, Mr.
Bodwell and Mr. Davis, opposed to each
other; and although tlieir methods differ
widely, it is generally conceded that.in the
end "honours are easy." The A'ictoria
firm is to be represented iu A'ancouver by
Mr. .1. II. Lawson, one of tlie most popular
and successful of our younger professional
men. "Jimmie," as he is familiarly
styled, will be greatly missed iu the city
in which he was born aud has spent the
whole of his life; but he will be a decided
acquisition to A'ancouver in professional
and social circles, and the destinies of the
firm are safe in his hands.
A REAL GOLD MINE
One hears a good deal about wildcats
these days, and altogether too much about
the fabulous wealth of the Portland Canal
district, but the public is not always
steered up against the genuine article. Thc
Week holds no brief, nor does it carry
any advertising for a company which is
just being formed to exploit a remarkable
gold discovery iu Steamboat Mountain.
This discovery was made by a reputable
American engineer. Air. W. A. Stevens—•
or at least he gets the credit for it. As a
matter of fact the claims were actually
located by an old-time Similkameen prospector, Dan Greenwalt. The claims are on
Muddy Creek, near the head waters of the
Skagit river, probably three, or four miles
north of the International boundary. They
are easily reached by the Hope trail. The
values occur in a porphyritic quartz vein,
which is intruded by volcanic action
through a huge mass of (Incite. The writer
is well acquainted with tllis district, and
did considerable prospecting work there ten
years ago. He was not fortunate enough
to discover a high grade quartz carrying
values approximating to $20.0(1 a ton as
an average of some hundreds of samples;

At The Street
Corner
By Tne LOUNQER
It is not often that I happen to
bc lucky enough to be on the spot
when there is anything doing, but on
the occasion of the big fire on Wednesday night I was right on deck. I
was coming up Government Street
when two girls rushed over from
Spencer's crying "David Spencer's on
fire"; presumably they were going
for a telephone, because within four
minutes the Fire Brigade was at
work. I should like to take this opportunity of complimenting the Fire
Chief and his men on the speed at
which they managed to arrive at the
scene of their labours. Of thc fire itself I havc nothing to say. There
was a blaze; things were burnt and
there is an empty space now. But I
am not a reporter. Weekly papers
don't need them. As I have often
said, "Wc don't print news; we criticise it." Of course, there are exceptions. There have been times when
The Week has been " 'way ahead" of
its contemporaries. But that has
been with regard to really important
things,  and  they don't  come  within
my province.
* *   *
I wonder how many things really
do come "within our province." This
is a horrible world for "butting-in."
There seems to be an indescribable
sort of "something" about certain
folk which induces them to make
everybody else's business their own.
I'm rather that way myself; but
then, that's my business. But this
'butting-in" business doesn't really
.pay. There is really nothing in it;
nobody loves you for it; most people
hate you for it.
* *   *
We are told that in the course of
time thc world will be regenerated.
This must be true because it is mentioned in the Bible. Therefore, it is
obvious that Victoria will have to
undergo that process and when that
fond time comes she will be found
wearing a white seal on her head
bearing the insignia, "And her name
was Mud." Nobody wants to register
a "kick" against legitimate work, but
when for months and months the
same street is rendered impassible, as
Douglas Street has been, it is about
time that a "kick" was made.
* *   *
All kin-Is "f people read poetry. I
often wi ...ier why they do it, because
I am satisfied that 99 per cent, of the
readers don't understand it; don't
appreciate it. and only read it because
it is the right thing to do. Did you
ever try and see what an easy thing
it is to write poetry? My editor
doesn't value my contributions, but
they arc beautiful, nevertheless. To
write a poem you have to keep two
things in mind. One is that there
has to be a man; secondly, there has
to be a woman, thirdly they have to
quarrel. If they don't quarrel, you
don't get your poem. Then, having
quarrelled, they separate and across
the wide, blue sea (the se;: is blue
anyway, but that doesn't matter)
they strain anxious arms for something tliat they don't a bit want, viz.,
each other's company, and yearn with
pleading eyes for a sight of what they
don't want to look at. Tt is very seldom that wc find anything to laugh
at in poetry. Occasionally we come
across a Thomas Barham; Thomas
Hood arises once in a generation.
But wc don't want to bc miserable;
we want to laugh, and thc average
poet makes you havc that nasty kind
of swallow in your throat, a feeling
that is not conducive to laughter.
There is a standing joke in every paper with regard to poets. They arc
usually called "Spring" poets; but
one can hardly blame the papers for
making a joke of men who spend
their time  in    writing    stuff    which
makes their fellowmcn miserable.

living in glass houses find it necessary to throw stones. I havc had a

plained of her upstairs neighbor for
keeping a dog. Men, women and children who have their habitat in flats
have got to have some consideration
for each other.
It is annoying to hear your neighbour's dog barking; but it is equally
annoying to your neighbour if your
children run up and down outside his
door. When all is said and done,
consideration is the first law of nature. We are all governed by the
law of "give and take." But it appears that there are still some people
on earth who cannot appreciate this
fact, and who, whilst having a beam

Now let's discuss the question of
hats. Hats are silly things anyway.
In the warm weather they keep your
head hot; in the cold weather they
don't keep it warm, and in the wet
weather they simply drip moisture
wherever you go. But, so long as
there are ladies in the land, just so
long will there be hats. Fortunately
for me I am not married, so I don't
have to foot any milliner's bills, but
I have seen thc results of other men's
misfortunes on their wives' heads. It
is not so long ago that I saw the
most extraordinary creation on a
girl's head. It wasn't her fault entirely, because she was too young to
know better. The hat was green in
colour; it was chimney-pot in shape,
and had a big green tassel hanging
down one side. But I don't know
that men can afford to cast a stone.
"Consider thc lilies of the field";
they aren't a patch on our top-hats.
And wc wear them and other atrocities just because we lack the nerve
to go bare-headed. God gave us hair,
and that hair was supposed to be a
protection from the sun in summer
and the rain and frost in winter; but
we have gone and coddled ourselves
up until it has become necessary for
us to protect our heads. And when
a man or woman is sensible enough
to break away from the established
custom, he, or she, is termed 'crazy."
These things are a pity, but—they
are so.

But, enough of frivolity. Let's talk
sense. Has it ever occurred to you,
gentle reader (why are readers al-!

minor quantity of the same appears
to depend on the tide. But why

. I have often said how much I appreciate "In Woman's Realm" which
appears every day in The Colonist.
On Saturday last there was an excellent little paragraph on the subject
of courtesy. I think that I may say
that I have urged a more advanced
education in this respect ;it is therefore with all the more pleasure that I
welcome aid from an ally. Courtesy
seems to bc thc lacking virtue in Canadian youth. It may be there, but
it seldom appears. For once in my
life I don't "speak as a fool," because
I do know something about boys. Six
years' experience as a schoolmaster
ought to teach a man a few things
about the genus "boy." On the
strength of that I havc not thc slightest hesitation in saying that thc average Canadian boy has a lot to learn
in the way of courtesy, and that thc
sooner hc learns it, thc better.

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
_)n Thursday evening Mr. James
Hackett and Company played a
unatised version of Anthony
ipe's delightful romance, "The
soner of Zenda" at the Victoria
eatre. Mr. Hackett is a capable
or and there are characters in
ich he would shine, but never as
nee Rudolph or Rudolph Rassend-
11 e is too heavy in appearance
1 maimer; too stiff, and, albeit, not
*t in the romantic mould. His role
in those spectacular plays render-
famous by Wilson Barrett, in
ich a muscular frame and heroic
en  do   half  the  work.    There  arc
0 roles in which it is impossible to
iceive Mr. Hackett, that of lover
a gentle lady, and that of an Eng-
i gentleman. As thc play was
tilated in several respects it is a
y that the excision did not extend
little further to the elimination of
lines repeated several times by
associaes: "He is an English gen-
nan." Jf there were no other
lunds on which this criticism
ild fairly be offered it may rest
m repeated mispronunciation and
uncultured accent. One other ob-
tion must bc raised and that is to
■   conception   which   Mr.   Hackett
1 his Company took of the play as
whole.    During the  Prologue  and
first  two  acts  their   reprcsenta-
n was simply a burlesque, to whicii
star contributed quite as much as
subordinates.    A fair criticism on
whole production is that the play
s well mounted nnd presented as a
io-comic,  farcical    drama,    which
uld  be  quite  amusing  and  enter-
ling to anybody who had not read
thony Hope's charming book; but
those who had it was simply dese-
tion in the form of a Bowdlcrised,
garised,  Americanised,  expurgated
tion.

The Welsh Ladies' Choir
Dn Friday,  November    4th,    local
sic lovers will be accorded a treat
the Victoria Theatre  as  on  that
:c   the   management   have   secured
. engagement of Madame Htighcs-
omas' Welsh Ladies Choir, of Car-
:, Wales.    During her last Amcri-
1 tour    Madame    Hughes-Thomas
de  her  name  well known  among
musical circles, so much  so that
e was requested to make this tour
ain this season.
The following notice    taken    from
"Allentown Morning Call" during
last tour, speaks for itself.
Beginning  with  a version  of  the
rring battle song, "Harlech"    and
including with "My Country, 'Tis of
hee,"    Madame      Hughes-Thomas'
/elsh   Ladies    Choir,    of    Cardiff,
■/ales, last evening presented a pro-
ramme of vocal music in the Lyric
eatre that has never been surpass-
[1 in this city.   The chorus work was
revelation of fine singing that the
lany musical people in the audience
ill never forget.   Perhaps the finest
lining was shown in such splendid
umbers as "The Spanish Gipsy" and
ic "Spinning Song," from the "Fly-
lg   Dutchman"   (Wagner),   both   of
em rendered b ythis same choir here King Edward and Queen Alex-
ndra at their request."
•/illiam Faversham in a New Play
William Faversham will be the at-
action  at  the Victoria Theatre  on
londay, Nov. 7.   He will present thc
reatest dramatic success "The World
nd   His  Wife."  This  drama  in   its
riginal form, has had an enormous
ogue on the Continent.   To be more
act, Mr. Nirdlinger's play is found-
on  Echegaray's  "The  Great  Ga-
oto," rather than an adaptation of
Mr. Faversham when starring in
The   Squaw   Man,"   gave   a   single
rformance of "The World and His
fife" at the Hollis Theatre, Boston,
1 February 12th, 1907.    Echegaray's
ay had created such a stir abroad
at there was a wide interest mani-
sted in this special performance. As
:pected,  the  drama  proved  one  of
traordinary interest and charm. In-

deed, so great was thc success achieved that Mr. Faversham decided to
use the play as his initial offering as
an actor-manager.
"The Kissing Girl"
Harry Hermson, he of the tremendous B flat tuba voice, which rises in
great billows of sound above all else
in the ensembles of "The Kissing
Girl," to be seen here on Tuesday,
Nov. 8, at the Victoria Theatre, is
one of the opera's hits. He has two
songs in the Von Tilzer score that
arc particularly effective and result
in many encores. One is entitled
"Good Old German Beer," and the
other "On the B— on the Bou— on
the Boulevard." He has been a conspicuous figure in many of the comic
opera successes of the past five
years. Personally, he is an all-round
good fellow.
The Girl, the Man and the Game
Billy (Single) Clifford's new starring vehicle might b-? called a musical farce in two long laughs. It is
entitled "The Girl, the Man and the
Game," and it is in two parts. The
plot is a consistent one, in which
there are many ludicrous situations
and many laughable complications.
To add to the interest, Mr. Clifford
offers a dozen new songs, that are
fresh and bright and breezy, and full
of just the sort of melody that the
public demands. The piece will be
seen at Victoria Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 9.
DeWolf Hopper
Without a single chorus-man to
mar thc harmonious whole, DeWolf
Hopper, accompanied by Miss Louise
Dresser, his New York company, and
the famous Daniel V. Arthur beauty
chorus, will bc seen at the Victoria
Theatre, for one night on Thursday,
Nov. 10, in his latest song comedy
success, "A Matinee Idol," which has
to its credit runs of one hundred
nights in Chicago and six months at
Daly's and the Lyric theatres in
New York.
New Grand Theatre
During the past six years  I have
seen many shows at the New Grand
Theatre, but it is seldom that I have
seen a show which is the equal of the
one  which   Mr.  Jamieson  is  putting
before the public during the present I
week.   Before  I  discuss  the turns  11
want to say a word of praise in fa-1
vour of the orchestra.   Prof. Nagel is
a competent conductor and he is ably
helped by Signor Claudio, whose violin is a matter of most congratulatory
remark; by Mr. North who plays thu
cornet like an artist and by Mr. Wil
son,   whose   rendering  of  the   drum
and   side    instruments    excites    applause  on  all  sides.  Miss  Flo  Adler
comes up to her reputation.   The act'
presented by the Five Columbians is '
one of the prettiest T have ever seen
on the vaudeville stage in the colonies.   Tom McQuirc runs Harry Lauder pretty close and his Scotch songs
are very good.    Seymour and Robinson as comic acrobats kept the house
in roars of    laughter.    If    Manager
Jamieson   can   contrive   to   keep   as
good a company playing    before    a
Victoria audience as the one on the
boards   at   the   time   of   writing,   he
ought to have no kick coming on the
box receipts.

MADAME NAZIMOVA
BY BOHEMIAN
Since 1 saw Sarah Bernhardt when
he made her first appearance with
he "Comedie Francaise" at the Gai-
:ty Theatre, London, more than 30
years ago, 1 have not seen as admirable and artistic a piece of acting as
that of Madame Nazimova in "A
Doll's House" at the Victoria Theatre
last Wednesday night. The Russian
actress came to the Pacific Coast
with a great reputation. Those who
had not seen her wcre inclined to
think that thc industrious advance agents had tinged the report with too
rosy a hue, but no one thinks so now.
It is difficult to know where to begin in offering a criticism of the performance, because both the play and
the star demand special treatment.
Since the play will live when the star
is forgotten, perhaps it is entitled
to the pride of place.
Many who have not seen a performance of "A Doll's House" may have
read the play. While it is unsatisfying in some respects, and particularly in respect of its unsound philosophy and false sentiment, I think
few competent critics will deny that
it is a masterpiece. To compare it
with the average productions submitted to Victoria theatregoers is an impossibility, the contrast is too great.
In every line one detects the hand of
a prince of dramatists in whom the
dramatic instinct is developed to a
marvellous degree.
As a piece of construction, "A
Doll's House" is almost flawless. It
runs through the gamut of human
emotions. Thc light and the shade
alternate just as the sunshine and the
showers of human life, and it is difficult to decide whicii is the more ad
mirably depicted. It is only when lb
sen, whose every drama is the vehicle
for some propaganda, begins to
preach that he ceases to be intensely
interesting.
While one felt that the incidents
of the play were leading up to some
tiling more than a mere dramatic denouement, they were not hindered or
marred in any way, and the breathless
suspense of the audience terminated
only when, at the end of the closing
scene, the principal characters were
compelled to speak the lines, in which
Ibsen set forth his views on the rights
■)i women, and the plane upon which
ie would place them, if he could, in
:he social scale.
Let mc briefly sketch the story.
Nora Helmer is a young, vivacious,
beautiful, fascinating woman; happily married, and living happily with
her husband. Thorwald Helmer. They
arc Norwegians, and a sitting room
in their flat in Christiana suffices for
thc three acts of the play. The open
ing scene is a revelation. Nora is
discovered romping with her two
children, as big a tomboy as either
She talks baby talk, lingers their toys
plays hide-and-seek, imitates the Liori
and thc Bear, and rolls on the floor
with thenl in the very ecstacy .of
childish glee. She is in every respect
a most  delightful  woman.
Her husband is a bank manager,
of the middle class, apparently de
voted to her, and charmed with the
prize hc has drawn in thc marriage
lottery. No couple could appear to
bc more affectionate and devoted.
Nora is visited by au old friend, now
- widow, Mrs. Linden, for whom she
.-cures a subordinate position in her
usband's bank.
Shortly   after   this.   Nils   Krogstad
ppcars on thc scene. Hc is the shadow on, the hearth, and comes to demand that Nora shall use her influence to secure Mrs. Linden's dismissal because she and Krogstad were
old flames   but  arc  now  at  enmity;
and moreover, hc is convinced that
the advent of Mrs. Linden means
his own dismissal. Nora refuses,
whereupon the tragedy of her life,
if it may fairly be regarded as a tragedy, is revealed.
It seems that some years before,
when her husband was in ill-health,
she was anxious to raise thc sum of
twelve hundred dollars, to send him
to Italy to recuperate. Krogstad lent
her the money, on a note of hand
signed by her father and herself. He
subsequently discovered that the signature of tiie father was a forgery,
and he comes to use this as a lever to
force Nora to comply with his wishes.
In vain does she plead, with all the
artlessness and innocence of her real
nature. It is true she signed her father's name, but she did this because
he was then dying, and she knew he
would not be able to sign even if she
iskcd him, while her anxiety and love
for her husband were so great that
she regarded thc offence as a very
venial act, fully justified by the circumstances.
When Krogstad threatens her with
exposure, she makes light of it, until
he basely suggests that men lend
money to vyomen for only one purpose, and that no one, least of all her
husband, would believe her asserva-
tions to the contrary. Then she rea-
izes the horror of her position, and
reluctantly consents to use her influence to, at any rate, prevent his dismissal.
She tries, on two occasions, to persuade her husband to this course, but
without avail; indeed he becomes
highly incensed; tells her that he has
evidence that Krogstad is a forger,
and that he couldn't breathe the same
air with a forger.
Then the gloom deepens. Nora is
racked with anguish and anxiety. She
broods over the situation. There is
another stormy interview with Krogstad, who finally threatens to write
a letter to her husband stating the
whole facts of the case. The letter
is written, ostentatiously dropped into
thc letter-box, where Nora sees it. By
an artifice, she persuades her husband
not to open his ietter box for twenty-
four hours, because there is to be a
children's party and a dance, and in
this "Doll's House" everything stands
aside for play.
Then follows an exquisite little
scene behyeen Nora and Dr. Rank,
one of the most beautifully written
and delightfully played scenes I have
ever witnessed. Dr. Rank is a middle-aged man, the victim of a deadly
disease, and'already has one foot in
the grave. He is the unspoken admirer of Nora, and loves her beyond
his life. Hc is the chosen friend and
adviser of her husband. Seeing that
she is in trouble, he seeks her confidence. Having absolute faith in his
honesty of purpose, she begins to tell
something of her story, but halts
halfway, when, in an unguarded moment, the doctor tells her of his love.
There is no passion in this scene;
it is thc simple, manly declaration of
a man who knows that his fondest
hopes can never bc realized, and that
he is already saying his long farewell.
The declaration seems so natural under thc circumstances that it might
well be excused, but the transparent
innocency of Nora's nature is beautifully portrayed in the sorrow which
it caused her, and the repulsion which
followed. She firmly, yet tenderly, refused to continue the interview or tp
finish her story; and in a delightful
sentence, which leaves the auditor almost in doubt as to the true meaning
of tiie author, Nora says to the doctor, "1 am so sorry you said what you
did." "Why?" hc asked. "Because it
was so unnecessary."
Thc doctor disappears. After the
party, Thorwald opens his letters,
learns the truth, denounces his wife,
declares that he can never live with
her again, or even remain under the
same roof; that she is not fit to be
thc mother of his children, or to have
charge of them; to all of which Nora
listens with amazement and horror
depicted on her face. This, is indeed
a revelation of the true character of
her husband; thc man whom she has
loved devotedly, for whom she sinned
if she sinned at all. and for whose
sake she had turned a deaf ear to the
charmer.
Here Ibsen struck a false note in
asserting the pre-eminence of the individual interest. He makes Nora
say: "I owed higher duty than that
of wife to her husband or rather to
her children—it is my duty to myself."
It might be argued that the highest
individual responsibility is best discharged by due regard* for others, especially those dependent on us; and
that no one can work out their own
salvation who abandons a sacred duty
on any mistaken plea of "living one's
own life." At any rate this is the
foundation of the Christian theory of
life and the wholesome conviction
which restrains many a disappointed
woman who has discovered that her
idol has feet of clay, from "going
forth to solve the problem of life
elsewhere." Despite all that Ibsen
may say, altruism is not yet discredited, nor has it become a fetich.
In the height of Thorwald's outburst of righteous indignation, a messenger arrives with a second letter
from Krogstad, in which lie withdraws
all his imputations and returns the
original note. Thorwald, who is obviously a creature of thc weakest impulse and totally unworthy of any
woman's love, flies to the other extreme. Now he is all delirious joy.
His first shout is, "I am saved," with
no thought for the woman who has
suffered to the limit of human endurance. When his delirium moderates,
he tries to make it up with Nora;
would embrace her; calls her his
"beautiful darling"; asks her to forget the silly things he said a few
minutes ago; he was beside himself
and did not mean them; and that of
course, now that the shadow was removed, they would live together and
be happy ever after.
During this truly magnificent scene,
Madame Nazimova was a study.
Without speaking a word, she depicted by expression, pose and gesture
every though that was passing
through her mind—amazement, sorrow, disgust, contempt—, and when
Thorwald had finished, she drew herself together and with queenly dignity told him that she could no longer
live under the same roof or breathe
the same air; that he had "shattered
the vase," and she must go forth,
alone, to work out her own salvation
in the world; and in spite of every
plea the curtain fell with Nora disappearing and Thorwald seated sorrowful and and humiliated at his desolate
hearth.
From this brief recital it will bc obvious that, however satisfying the
play may be from a dramatic standpoint, it is unreal; that the'motive is
insufficient to constitute a tragedy, or
to justify the attitude of the husband.
No sane man would denounce a faithful, loving wife on such grounds; and
no sane woman would abandon home
and children, even when she had detected the lamentable weakness of
her husband. But Ibsen has peculiar
ideas on the subject of women, their
rights, their privileges, and their mission in this world. His ideas are not
very clear to anyone but himself; but
they certainly tend to encourage an
independence of action whicii would
betoken ill for society and ruin for
home life if it wcre generally adopted. The one thing, however, which it
is impossible not to admire about Ibsen is the simplicity, thc directness,
and the purity of his teachings; and
in spite of the wide gulf which separates him from the accepted leaders
of modern thought in Anglo-Saxon
countries, it is impossible not to concede his loftiness of purpose, and consummate skill in developing dramatic
situations.
Madame Nazimova's acting was superb. There was not a weak spot in
her performance. She was equally admirable in comedy, in pathos, and in
tragedy. Nothing could bc more perfect than her thoughtless insouicance
in the earlier scenes. Her abandon,
both with her husband and with her
children, was as natural as that of a
child; and yet you could never forget the woman, with the bright, quick
intellect, the perfect poise, 'and the
profound natural intuition which gave
her advance notice of approaching
danger.
I have referred to the gem of the
play, the scene with the doctor, and
also to the strong incident when she
The Philosophy of Life
Did it ever occur to you that a man's life is full of crosses and
temptations? He comes into the world without his consent and
goes out against his will, and the trip between is exceedingly rocky.
The rule of the contraries is one of the features of the trip.
When he's little the big girls kiss him, when he is big the little
girls kiss him.
If he is poor he is a bad manager; if he is rich he is dishonest.
If he needs credit he can't get it; if he is prosperous everybody
wants to do him a favor.
If he is in politics it is for graft; if he is out of politics he is no
good to his country. If he docs not give to charity he is a stingy
cuss;  if he does it is for show.
If he is actively religious he is a hypocrite; if hc takes no
interest in religion he is a hardened sinner.
If he gives affection he is a soft specimen; if he cares for no
one he is cold-blooded. If he dies young there was a great future
before him; if he lives to an old age he missed his calling.
If he saves money he is a grouch; if he spends it he is a loafer.
If he gets it he is a grafter; if he doesn't get it he is a "bum."
So what's the use. Life is just one thing after another. As
the hen remarked, "An egg today and a stew tomorrow."
There's one thing to do—drink the best Champagne—G. H.
Mumm's "Extra Dry."   None genuine without the pink capsule.

parts from her husband. Few actresses could attempt a part which
makes such diverse demands upon the
performer; but Madame Nazimova
seemed to be perfectly at her ease,
and as natural in one scene as the
other. Indeed, in the latter great
scene she played with repressed power that was thrilling.
Tt is the first time that I have seen
her; I certainly hope to see her again.
She has made the Ibsen plays her own
and of them all "A Doll's House" is
the least morbid and the most popular. It made her reputation in a single night. But before passing a final
judgment on such a brilliant artiste,
I should like to see her in one of the
heavier plays, and make up my mind
whether she can really ascend to the
loftiest heights of tragedy. What Ibsen intends for tragedy in "A Doll's
House" is a little too unreal and
forced to satisfy the critical judgment,
and to furnish a supreme test.
Madame Nazimova was well supported. Indeed, the whole production
was as near perfection as one could
possibly expect; and if the local management never did anything else for
dramatic art in Victoria, they have
laid all its true lovers under a dec.))
and lasting obligation.

MEXICO!
The Greatest Mining Country in the World
Stands First in Silver, and Third in Gold Production
We are Largely Interested in one of the Richest Gold Producing Districts in the
State of Sonora* Should you desire full information call and see us* Mr, Hind
a well known Victoria Engineer gives the following report of his investigations:
Victoria, B. C, 6th August, igio.
TO  THE V. SONORA MINING SYNDICATE, Victoria:
Gentlemen,—I beg to report that I have at your request completed an investigation covering a large area of
the District of Altar, State of Sonora, in the Republic of
Mexico, having particular reference in such work to the
Placer Fields and existing conditions of the District.
I find that there are a number of there fields, the best
known being The Las Palomas, San Perfecto, Las Norias,
Quitobac, Sonoyta, La Cieniguilla, Boludo, San Rafael,
Santa Rosa, La Durasno and several smaller ones.
These placers are by no means a new discovery, but
have been worked for probably 200 years, as is evidenced
by the profusion of old shafts, surface workings, ancient
towns and other signs of one-time activity.
A number of these fields were visited and the ground
inspected, and in every instance it is interesting to note
that there is a system of gold-bearing quartz veins in the
hills of the vicinity, these without doubt being the feeders for the placer grounds.
The general conditions have been eminently favorable
for the erosion of these veins, and in fact such erosion has
taken place to the extent of probably hundreds of feet.
During this process of erosion the gold liberated from the
veins has been deposited with the gravels on the lower
benches, thus forming deposits of varying values and
thickness, and subsequently owing to he presence of lime
in the percolating waters a gradual process of cementation has taken place, and it is owing to this cementing
that only a comparatively small amount of the deposits
have been worked.
From the earliest days of the country the Yaqui and
Papago Indians have been prosecuting their search for
the yellow metal, and in the District there art thousands
of acres that have been worked over by them down to the
cemented gravels. Owing to their lack of machinery and
appliances they were only able to work the loose surface
deposits, or such portions of the cements as were abnormally rich, and whilst there are no records of the amounts
taken out that can be relied upon, it is estimated that
hundreds of millions of dollars have been won.
So far as it is possible to judge the conditions in the
cemented gravels have been practically the same as in the
loose overburden, in which case it is conceded that the
majority of these known fields will give large returns
when these cements are worked.
Owing to the lack of water, and the difficulty so far
experienced in satisfactory dry crushing, there has been
but little real work done in recent years, or at any rate
until, at Boludo, Mr. Mitt Quenner devised his pulverizer.
This is a revolving barrel-shaped grizzly, on trommels, the inside being fitted with steel hammers or slugs
on chain links and attached to the centre shaft, and revolving at high speed.
This machine breaks the cements from the rock or
boulders, and a portion of the latter is ejected as valueless, thus making a preliminary concentration of values,
and the cement and finer particles of rock are pulverized
and the gold freed. The resultant pulp is then treated
by being run over a "dry washer," a somewhat crude concentrating device capable of considerable improvement,
and the gold saved thereon. The saving by these washers
is fair, but not close, but with some slight improvements
Engineer's Report
made to it, I think the machine will be capable of making a high extraction if carefully worked, and taking into
consideration their original cost and the cost of operation
i would be hard 0 replace them entirely, although if necessary further machines of an approved type could be installed to increase the saving.
The Quenner Pulverizer has a proven capacity_ of
over 0 tons of cemented gravels per hour, and requires
less than 30 h. p. to operate it.
The country is generally a dry one and water is
scarce. This condition has made it necessary in most instances to treat the ores by dry methods, and has undoubtedly developed the present efficiency of such methods. With gasoline or oil engines, and dry pulverizers
and washers the lack of water has no particular terror
for the operators, as for camp purposes it is always easy
at small expense to obtain such quantities as may be required.
The climate is favorable for mining, as there is very
little wet or cold weather, and although at times extremely hot I did not notice that work was in any way interfered with.
The supply of labor is plentiful, the Mexicans and Indians being excellent miners, in fact, this seems to be
their onl ymeans of livelihood, and wages range from
$1.00 to $1.5 per day for native labor. Skilled labor is
paid for at about the same rate as prevails in our own
camps.
I made arrangements for you for the purchase on
favorable terms of an exploration of approximately 1,000
pertinencias (2,500 acres) covering a portion of the well
known San Rafael placer fields.
Owing to the nature of the placer deposits it is impossible without going to great expense, to obtain a fair
average of the values, and more particularly so as some
of the gold is very coarse, nuggets from $1.00 to $5.00
being not uncommon, whilst fro malmost every placer
field mentioned there are well authenticated reports of
nuggets of large size being taken, many of them being
valued at hundreds of dollars.
The most prospecting work done in any one place
has been carried out at Las Palomas, by R. K. Neill, of
Spokane, and in his report he estimated average values of
$0.70 per yard for a depth of 50 feet over a prospected
area of 100 acres, with an estimate of $6,000,000 worth of
gold contained in this prospected area, and this he states
without taking into account the enriched gravels on bedrock, running from 1 to 7 feet thick, for which he got
values of approximately $30.00.
Mr. Neill's estimate of working costs is $0.12^ per
yard, using the dry methods as adopted there for up to
date practice.
At Boludo three companies are working on bedrock,
and whilst no definite returns can be obtained, I penson-
ally watched several of the cleanups, and found that their
ground was averaging from $7.00 to $10.00 per ton.
The San Rafael Placers, under option to the company, have been worked over on the surface by Mexicans
and some prospect, and working shafts have been sunk in
the "argamasa" or cemented gravels and values as high
as $8.00 per ton were obtained.
The thickness of the gravels here is as yet an undetermined factor, but here are large areas which can be
seen to be from 20 or 30 feet upwards in thickness. It
would be difficult to estimate the actual values contained
in this ground, but there are known places in the gravel
that will contain not less than $1.00 per ton, and on one
of these selected places I should advise that a complete
outfit be installed. The total cost of such an outfit, including Quenner Pulverizer, gasoline engine, conveyors
and washers will not exceed $7,000, and as practically no
provision has to be made for the native workmen employed the further sum of $500 would be sufficient for
preliminary headquarters for the management and white
employees.
As a low estimate of the values contained, I will assume that the first place on which the equipment is
placed will yield $0.60. The cost of mining and treatment
should not exceed at an outside estimate $0.25, which
would give a net profit of $0.35 per ton, and the machine
will treat 400 tons per day. There would thus be a net
profit of $140.00 per day or upwards of $3,5oo per month.
I should further recommend that a sum of not less
than $6,000 be devoted to the purchase of a Quenner
Prospecting Mill and equipment, and that the whole of
the Company's property be gone over and thoroughly
sampled. After such areas of pay gravel as may exist
there are definitely located, it would then be for the Directors to decide whether to install furher machines and
so increase he output, or to sell or lease the ground so
proved to contain pay values. By such prospecting and
sampling any ground considered not to have sufficient
values (and in this great area we may safely assume that
portions will be practically of no value to us) could be
abandoned, instead of being carried on and taxes paid
therefor.
The annexed extract from the "Mining World" of
July gth, 1910, will be of undoubted interest to you, and I
therefore append it for your perusal:
"AMERICAN OPERATIONS IN MEXICO.
"In 1823 there was passed the first act enabling for-
eigenrs to own and operate mines in Mexico and in the
following year three great English corporations accepted
the invitation, being the United Mexican Association, he
Anglo-Mexican Associaion and the Adventure Co., the
three practically confining their activities to the camps of
Guanajuato and Pachuca. Now there are about 1200 legitimate mining companies of outside origin and control operating profitably in Mexico, besides many others engaged in developing ground that is promising in appearance,
and still other concerns unincorporated.
"The majority of all these are American, and the result that, despite the fabulous sums that have been taken
from the ground throughout the centuries, since the Cor-
tez era, Mexico now ranks fifth among the countries of
the world in production of lead, fourth in gold, second
in copper and first in silver. It is only within the last few
years that any serious attention was paid to the mining
of gold in the republic, but now there are several camps,
heretofore rated as strictly silver producers, which are
scoring greater yields in the yellow than in the white
metal."
In conclusion I beg to say that the ground obtained
by you gives great promise of being a large producer of
Gold (which is the only metal on which the price never
varies) and assured careful management I can with confidence recommend it as a legitimate enterprise capable of
making large returns upon the money invested.

your plate rail. We have some of the very quaintest shapes in Blue, Fawn and Green effects. It is not often you see such fine goods at such fine
prices. We have sold a lot of this earthenware already. Some people who were in the store at the time we were pricing it asked us to reserve some

THE CANADIAN MAGAZINE
"Calgary"
One of the breeziest descriptive articles of the season appears in Thc
Canadian Magazine for October under the title "Calgary: A Study in
Optimism." The author is Miss Jane
Pratt, a writer whose name is not as
yet very generally known. This article is well worth reading. While it
gives some impression of Calgary in
a commercial way, its chief charm is
in the naive manner in which an insight is given into the daily life and
spirit of the people of this city of the
foothills. A more serious article is
contributed by Stuart Jenkins, and
entitled "Is the Old Roman Race
Still Dominant?" in which tbe author
claims for thc people of Great Britain a perpetuation of thc Roman type
that once dominated the whole world.
"Damascas thc Temptress" is the ti
tle of a  line travel  article by
Carman, and "The Continuity oil
nicipal Policy" is a well-thouglj
consideration   of   local    govern!
Frank  JI.  Newton gives a gool
count of the new domain in Nl
ern Ontario, in which hc predic

Robbery at Nome
Approximately $150,000 wortl

This is the estimate placed upo
company's loss by recent an
from the north. Thc arrest of
Tibcrg at Seattle with over !|
worth of stolen dust in his posse
and the detention of John Erii
at Nome arc more incidents of
conspiracy that is gradually bein
folded in the north and whicii i
cates superintendents, straw-b
foremen and others engaged in

the Pioneer Mining Company.
Thc plan of the robbers    wa
seize a few handfuls of the   co
trates, richly laden    with    glitl
particles of gold, and drop it ini
leg of the gum boots at   a   mil
when the officials of the compa

else.   This gold afterwards wai

sluice box concentrates, at thi
when it is   partially    washed
would  contain  about  $150  wo
gold, and by repeating the opi
a few times every week,   and
