THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1908
In   the   passing   of   Grover
ifover Cleveland, the United. States
leveland.    joses 0Ug 0f the ablest men
who has filled the Presidential
bair for many years.   He may not have
3en animated by the high impulse and
>fty   enthusiasm   which   have   inspired
heodore Roosevelt, nor was he capable
f creating ideals such as those associated
ith the revered name of Lincoln, but
e was a strong, capable ruler, a thorough
jlitician, and a man who understood the
merican people.   Ills instincts were com-
iercial and no man could have appre-
ated more keenly or with more accurate
ituition the very nuances of that fiscal
)licy which was mo6t .consistent with the
rowed determination of the country.    If
e acquisition of great wealth and the
pid development of the resources of his
untry were laudable objects, then Oleve-
nd more than any other President con-'
ibuted directly to the attainment of both
suits.    Towards the end of his second
rm he lost control of his party and his
estige suffered in consequence.    When
e Senate in the last days of his admin-
tration refused to confirm one of his
ost important fiscal measures, the limit
his ascendancy was reached and passed,
ow little he was fitted for the larger
ena of international politics was evinced by his sensational message in the
enezuelan affair.    The verdict of pos-
ity will probably be that this was not,
some would have us believe, a hasty
id impulsive act, but a ct'afty move in
e game of home politics intended to
Uy to his support all the disaffected and
ti-British element of his country.   That
failed in more serious consequences was
te solely to the remarkable sagacity and
rbearance of Lord Salisbury.    Without
ing a great man, because lacking in the
sentials of true greatness, Cleveland was
vertheless a notable man, one who served
s country well,   and   to   whom   men' •
oughts have often turned during the la .
1 years.
The critics of the Provii■■•
ince Rupert cial Government are up in
)wn Lots. arms betimes with referen
to the sale of the Prim
ttpert town lots. Their attitude savour.*,
it a little of trying to cross the bridge
fore they come to it. Although no offi-
nl announcement has been made the Van-
uyer press has stated with authority that
e sale of the, Government lot3 at the
and Trunk Pacific terminus is to be
trusted to Mr. C. I). Rand, a well known
)ker and real estate agent. It is pro-
ble that if any other method of dis-
ing of the lots had been announced it
ould have furnished just as much food
r hostile criticism, and therefore no one
ed be alarmed at the attitude of thc
ss which is expected to find fault with
cry thing the Government does. It is
jrthy of note that the criticism has been
ected wholly at the supposed intention
the Government to1 dispose of the lots
private treaty instead of by public
ction. Not 11 word has been said against
Rand whose reputation as a business
111 of integrity is well established in the
ovince. So that if tliere were any points
favour of private sale the Government
'lild seem to have made a wise choice in
agent. Tlie only reasonable objection
his appointment which has been urged
that since si Vnncouver Agent handled
1 sale of the Point Grey lands, some
(•toria firm should have been favoured
tli the Prince Rupert business. This
ins to The Week 11 reason a ble view to
ce and pne which wil! no doubt be reprc-
EDITORIAL
sented to the Government through the proper channels. Meanwhile it is understood
that the Chief Commissioner will himself
pay a visit to Prince Rupert on an early
date in order to investigate various departmental matters and incidentally to determine finally the method to be adopted
for the disposal of the town lots. That
he will arrive at a wise decision after hearing all that can be said on both sides of
the question may safely be counted on.

The comments of The Week
on a certain statement made
by Miss Murcutt during
her visit to Victoria have

The Chinese failed to appreciate the true
Head Tax.        inwardness of the change
made in the disposition of
the Chinese Head Tax by the Laurier Government. True the proposal as it first
came from Ottawa was not as definite as
it might have been and left a loop-hole
for the possible enrichment of other Provinces at the expense of British Columbia.
Mr. Borden, however, was fully alive to
the interests of this Province and the modification which has been made on his suggestion should be entirely satisfactory. It
is in effect that British Columbia will receive one-half the head tax in every instance and that the other half will be receivable by the Province in which the im-

the local Council of Women in disowning
any responsibility for Miss Murcutt's utterances, indeed a very gratifying letter
written by Mrs. Day, the President, makes
it quite clear that Miss Murcutt did not
appear in Victoria under their auspices,
but was sent by the General Council of
the W. C. T. U. This is entirely satisfactory and indeed no one expected any
other position to be taken np by the ladies
of Victoria. It would be uncharitable to
assume that the Council of the W.C.T.U.
entertained different views, in fact no right
minded body of women in the civilized
world would for a moment endorse the
statement of Miss Murcutt or believe that
it contained a particle of truth. The
Week has taken care that the various press
reports referring to Miss Murcutt's action
shall reach the Council of the W.C.T.U.,
and confidently waits decisive action by
that body. The obstacles in the way of
legitimate reform are sufficiently numerous
and formidable without the added incubus
of slanderers of the type of Miss Murcutt

migrant is rated. Surely this is .fair!
The "raison d'etre" of the tax was that
the Chinaman was an undesirable immigrant:, mimical to the interests of the Province, and who, if hc were to be tolerated
at all, should be taxed iu consideration of
these deficiencies. Why the Province
should receive compensation for an injury
which is not inflicted on it seems rather
ilifficuli In understand. If the Chinaman
does uol locate here lie is neither a burden nor a menace, whereas he is both to
some oilier province, according to the view
held by those who promulgated the tax.
If the advocates of the tax are sincere, and
they have alleged their genuine motive for
wishing to tax the Chinese, then they
would be glad to get rid of him, and if
so it is not easy to see why British Columbia, which simply affords him an
avenue to the Interior should both be rid
of the nuisance and retain thc tax. The
fact of the case is tliat the papers whieh
havc taken this stand are just a little more
zealous for once than the circumstances
demand and just a little too oblivious of
tho rule of fair play which should he observed, even between provinces. The "via

Borden's suggestion seems eminently fair
and leaves no possible grounds for criticism, although there is always room for
bickering.
The decision of the Su-
A Disquieting premo Court of British Col-
Decision, umbia to grant a new trial
in the case of George
Walkem will produce a very disquieting
affect throughout the Province, and while
it may appear almost presumptuous to
differ from the ruling of the two learned
Judges who are responsible for that decision, it is impossible not to be impressed
by the very able dissenting judgment delivered by Mr. Justice Morrison. The
appeal was a purely technical one and the
subtleties of the argument altogether outside the range of newspaper discussion.
Mr. Joseph Martin presented the Appeal
with marked ability and the points upon
which he chiefly relied were accepted by
the Court. The first was that counselling
to commit a crime is not in itself of necessity a crime; and that if the act counselled is committed outside the jurisdiction
of the country in which the counselling
takes place, the former is not an offence
amenable to the laws of the country. Even
to the lay mind it would seem as if this
legal apothegm is not unlimited in its
application, and _M r. J ustice Morrison was
able to cite a case in which an English
Court had held to the contrary when murder was the crime. It would only need a
little moving of the line to include abortion, and since tho line is obviously not
clearly defined, it is open to doubt whether
the principle enunciated governs the present case. The other point is that this
is one of those offences in which the evidence of an accomplice does not require
corroboration, but Mr. Martin contended
that since the trial Judge declared that
he found corroboration and emphasized its
influence upon his mind, it was open to
argue the sufficiency of the corroboration,
and if ho could demonstrate its inadequacy to demand, at least, a new trial.
A majority of the court decided in Mr.
Martin's favour on both points. Public
opinion will receive a shock if through a
legal technicality Walkem escapes his well
merited punishment, since there is no suggestion that the act was not committed,
and no serious attempt to dissociate him
from connivance.
Mr. F. J. Deane is a good
A Difference newspaper man, a poor poli-
Of Opinion.      tician and a worse prophet.
He made the Nelson Daily
News by fur the best daily paper in British
Columbia, taking everything into account,
But although a prominent politician for
many years, and an ex-Royal Commissioner, he failed to secure a nomination
from his own City at thi! recent Liberal
Convention at Nelson, lie did worse, or
at any rate his supporters did, for by
making an unreasonable personal attack on
Mr. G. 0. Buchanan, one of the most respected men in the Kootenays, he split the
Convention into two factions, and thereby
lost whatever chance either he or Mr.
Buchanan had of being nominated. His
latest exploit is to predict the success of
Smith Curtis and Duucan Ross. The
Week knows the Kcitenays just about as
well as Mr. Deane, and is reinforced in its
opinion by ihe utterances of Premier McBride and the lion. Dr. Young. Of course
it is only an opinion, but unless all evidence is belied, Mr. Burrill will have an
ea«y win in Yale, and if Ihe best candidate
available is selected for Kootenay, Smith
Curtis will continue lo plough his lonely
furrow. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1908.

On Rulers.
The Republican Convention which
recently met in Chicago, with a practically unanimous voice, nominated
Mr. Taft as the candidate of the
Party at the next Presidential election. It is almost certain that Mr.
Bryan will be the nominee of the
Democratic Party. In no country in
the world is the election of its titular
ruler so entirely in the hands of the
people. The intricate system of primaries carries the voting power back
to a comparatively small coterie in
every ward of every city, and in every
village of every rural district. From
this small beginning the tide of popular acclaim rolls onward until it culminates in a great representative convention which voices beyond any
question the wishes of the Party, and
yet in the United States in spite of
its perfect political machinery, there
is the same unknown and unmeasure-
able factor as exists elsewhere, that
of the silent vote. But for this it
would be possible to pronounce with
absolute certainty who the next President will be, but in spite of the preponderating impression in favour of
Mr. Taft, there will be some element
of doubt until the last vote is
counted.
It is impossible to avoid comparing
the elaborate system of choosing a
new ruler which prevails in the Southern Republic, with the peaceful and
uneventful succession to thc throne in
countries where Constitutional Monarchy prevails. There is no sense in
which the President of the United
States is more truly the choice of the
people than is the case with King Edward, because although the latter succeeded to the throne by right of birth,
the British Constitution provides for
his deposition in a manner which
would be just as speedy and effective
as his accession. His personal popularity has no bearing upon the question of his constitutional rights or
those of his subjects, and thc idea that
an elective ruler can be got rid of
more easily than an hereditary one is
a contention without foundation. Not
a few writers have been impressed
with certain developments in connection with the latest nominee of the
Republican Party in the States. English papers in particular havc pointed
out that Mr. Taft is more truly the
selection of President Roosevelt than
the nominee of the Republican Party,
and that under the circumstances his
election, whilst not in any sense violating the American Constitution,
would nevertheless mark an appreciable concession to the principle of
Monarchical Government.
It may or may not be true but it is
generally believed that President
Roosevelt forced Mr. Taft upon the
Party and made it clear in the alternative he would take the field himself.
The significance of this is that for
the first time in the history of the
States the Republican Party and possibly as the elections may ultimately
show, the country has practically accepted dictatorship at the hands of the
most resolute and determined man
who has ever occupied the Presidential chair. The outcome will be interesting to watch. If the relative positions of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft
are to be as outlined above, a time
of unrest if not of disquiet may be anticipated. The world knows the worst
and possibly the best of the President; he is a strong determined, sincere man, full of enthusiasm and enthusiasms. The responsibilities of office have barely sufficed to check them
within the safety limit. Rid of these
responsibilities, and represented by a
man who is both his nominee and devotee, his zeal for reform may lead
him into greater excesses as "deus
ex machina" than any. he has perpetrated as President. There is, however, another-side to the picture, while
Taft is an immeasurably weaker personality than Roosevelt he will be an
exception to all the men who have
preceded hint if the responsibilities do
not increase his stature. After all if
he is big enough he can fill the seat,
and in spite of the extravagances
which are so characteristic of the
great, new rich nation which he seeks
to govern, there has always been a
sufficient leaven to preserve the best
characteristics of the Anglo-Saxon
race and to sustain in the noblest
performance of his duty the man who
has been called to the helm of the
nation. For this reason there is no
room for.pessimism at the advent ot
Mr. Taft. The very fact that he has
been chosen by the President is at
least an endorsation of personal character. The action of the Convention
may fairly be regarded as an endorsation of fitness, and if this is subsequently confirmed by a majority of
his fellow countrymen the moral influence of their choice will endow
him with all the confidence and cour-'
age necessary for the discharge of all
duties of his office.

A second hand clothes dealer was
selling a suit to a very meek and
easily satisfied customer. All went
well until the trousers were tried on.
Then—"Ain't they a bit on the big
side, mister?" asked, the customer timidly.
"Big? No fear. Beautiful fit. Let
me brace 'em up. There! Now they're
lovely; and comfortable too, I'll lay.
Ain't they?"
The customer wriggled.
"Not bad, mister," he said, meekly, "but a little bit tight under the
arms."

In our Bedstead Department we
have just unpacked a large shipment
of new bedsteads both brass and iron.
They are works of art, yet practical
in construction; the tubes, filling
rods, castings and pillars are of the
very finest materials, the workmanship is the best. You can easily
match your bedroom furnishings.
There are Bedsteads for mansion or
cottage, for hotel or apartment house,
for hospital or camp—all priced low.
We should like you to examine these
bedsteads, then see if you can get
better value elsewhere; we welcome
comparisons and competition; they
nerve us to greater and better efforts
in our own and your interests. We
have nothing to hide, bring an expert
with you and take his verdict.
Recently a great advance has been made in the
construction of roll top desks. You know- the
present style with the pedestals flush on the floor,
impossible to sweep under without moving the
desk. The SANITARY roll top desk is built on
short legs—it is easy to brush the dust and litter
from down under. We are showing a very fine
shipment of these new desks. Come in and see
them, even if you are not wanting a new oflice
desk it is as well to be abreast of the times and
see what up-to-date business men are using in
other cities. The desks are on the fourth floor.
We have priced these new desks very low, viz.,
$25.00 up.

■The Victoria Baseball Club has

Ine last Saturday when the locals

fully that the locals have in Sur-

Coast. I am not giving this out
I hot air, but am writing from per-
jial observation and if any one of
teams in the Northwest League

staff then I miss my guess. He

is the kind of team that is up-
Iding   the   honour   of   the   Capital
Jy nf B. C, but yet the citizens do
take   sufficient   interest   in   the
game to turn out in numbers large
enough to enable the management to
meet expenses. I am greatly surprised at this, for Victoria has always
enjoyed the reputation of being the
heart of true sport on the Pacific
Coast and to have such a meagre attendance is a blot on the reputation
of the city. A game will be played
this afternoon at Oak Bay when the
locals will go up against the Atheltics
of Seattle and if they should win, it
will entitle them to the title of amateur champions of the Pacific Northwest. With this game as an attraction I hope the citizens will attend
in such numbers as to enable the
management to at least clear expenses. The game will start at 3
o'clock and will be played rain or
shine.
In connection with the meagre
crowds that have been attending the
baseball games the citizens of this
city have been deprived of the pleasure of witnessing two of the Northwest League teams playing here. An
indirect offer to bring the Vancouver
team and one other team to this city
to play has been made, but after last
Saturday those who made the suggestion are not prepared to make any
move. For example, during the week
day games at Vancouver the attendance has not been lower than 1,500
and on Saturdays the total attendance
has reached as high as 5,000, and the
best that has been done here, this
season is uot more than 700. On the
face of this it would bc absurd to
attempt to bring two visiting teams
to this city.
the part of the locals and the New
Westminster boys will realize that
they have a team against them when
they meet next Saturday.
The lirst real interesting cricket
of the season was played at the Jubilee Hospital grounds last Saturday
when the local players administered a
severe drubbing to the present champions. Tiie locals displayed far better form than on the Saturday previous when a defeat was handed out
by the Garrison. On the whole the
showing made was very gratifying and
1 am of the opinion that the glories
that were lost by the local club last
year will again perch on the club banners after the cricket week which will
this year tatyi place in this city.
The Week's tip to bowl Gooch and
Silcock worked like a charm.
commences on July the 6th, the open
tournament for the championships of
British Columbia commences on July
-V, when Miss Ma/ Sutton is expected to compete. The Spokane Club
holds its second annual tournament on
Saturday, July 4, the Portland Club
on Tuesday, July 14, and the Vancouver Club on July 20. Tacoma and
Everett slip into thc following month,
the former being slated for August 3,
and the latter for August 10. There
will be a number of Victoria players
engaged at most if not all of these
events. The first of the home and
home matches between Victoria and
outside clubs will lake place on Tuesday, June 30, when six players will
journey to Duncans to antagonize the
Cowichan club.
Not All Pleasure.

Next week the annual regatta under the auspices of the North Pacilic
Association of Amateur Oarsmen will
take place in Seattle and this city

A. A. oarsmen are training faithfully
and I would not be surprised to see
the "Big Four" capture thc trophy
which for many years rested in this
city, but which for the last two years
has been missing.
Thc local boys must remember that
they have a great reputation at stake
and should let nothing interfere with
their chances of winning the championship. The eyes of all lovers of
good clean sport in this city rests
upon them and it is up to them to
see that the trust that has been placed with them has not been misplaced.

A Deadly Weapon.
A better method of meeting a duelling challenge was no doubt one
which was employed on a certain occasion by a French statesman against
M. Victor Noir, tin illiterate bully of
the press in the time of the second
empire. The statesman received from
N'nir, for no reason whatever, a challenge to light a duel,
Noir was a densely ignorant man,
anil nearly every word in thc challenge was misspelled. The statesman
responded with  tin*  following letter:
Dear Sir—You have called me out,
without any good reason. I have,
therefore, the choice of weapons. I
choose the spelling book, and you
are a dead inan." 'I'he duel was never

The groom's sister, Miss Kate Heaps,
was maid of honour, while Miss Elsie
Heaps and Olive and Frances Miller
made charming flower girls. The
church was crowded with the many
friends of the bride and groom from
different points which showed the
popularity of the young couple. A
reception was held after the ceremony at the home of the bride's parents on Albert street, after which
the young couple left on an extended
honeymoon trip to be spent in the

future   home   at   Cedar   Cove,   Van-
One of the most fashionable weddings of the season took place on
Wednesday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock
at the Centennial Methodist church,
Gorge Road, when Maud Ethel, eldest
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H.
Bone,   and   Dr.   E.   A.   McMicking,
fourth son of Mr. and Mrs. R. B.
McMicking, were joined in the holy
bonds of matrimony. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. S. J. Thompson while Mrs. Gideon Hicks rendered
"The Voice That Breathed O'er
Eden" and the wedding march was
played by Mr. Edward Parsons. The
church had been transformed into a
perfect paradise of flowers, the work
of the bride's friends. The bride who
was given away by her father, wore
a beautiful filmy dress of white chiffon over soft white satin, profusely
trimmed with real lace and a lace
veil. Her bridesmaids, Miss Lena
and Genevieve Bone, were attired in
pale pink crepe de chine and a dainty
pale blue silk muslin respectively.
They both wore large picture hats
and carried beautiful bouquets. The
bridegroom was supported by Dr.
Geo. Hall, while Mr. Victor Wolfenden and Mr. John McArthur wcre
ushers. After the ceremony a reception was held at the residence of the
bride's parents, "Stonhenge," Rockland avenue, which had been tastefully decorated for the occasion with
masses of fern and roses. The wedding breakfast was served in the
dining-room, the table being arranged with bowls of daisies and ferns
with streamers of smilax and lotus
flowers. The bridegroom's gift to the
bride was a beautiful hoop of diamonds and pearls and to the bridesmaids a pearl pendant and an amethyst bracelet. Both the best man
and the ushers received pearl scarf-
pins. After their honeymoon, which
is to be spent in the Sound cities, Dr.
and   Mrs.   McMicking  will   take   up
their residence on Yates street.
*   *   *
Mrs. E. V. Bodwell's residence,

The  Sunset   Fold.
(By  Charles   Henry  Chesley)
Far away to the West is a region of
rest,
Fenced in by rare roseate beams,
And its shimmering sands never mortal  has  pressed
Except in deep mystical dreams.
And thc arrest of treasures are stored
away there,
Far down on the rubiate shore,
But those who have sought for the
jewels  so fair
Are sleeping to waken no more.
For a story is told of the treasures
that gleam
From   rocks  011   the  reach  of  the
bay,
And the  diamonds  that  glist  in  the
westering beam,
When sun sinks at fading of day.
Ah, how oft have I dreamed of that
zephyrus strand,
With treasures and mythical glow,
And how oft have I longed to away
to that land,
To rest  where balmy winds blow.

THE WBXK, SATURDAY JUNE 27, 1908,
In common with all wide awake
Victorians I had to take in the Pain
show at the Royal Athletic grounds,
lt was undoubtedly the best thing of
the kind that has ever been seen in
Victoria. The fireworks were altogether beyond criticism, and ecpial to
any that havc been seen in Canada,
which, however, might only have been
expected from the Pain people. The
other part of the show was the best
of its kind and under the coloured
lights was extremely effective. The
first night every seat was taken and
large crowds lined the enclosure railing. The weather was charming and
all conditions favourable for an open
air fete, and when all is said and done
for pure enjoyment there is nothing
finer. Every section of Victoria society was well represented, everybody
laughed, and everybody cheered. If
the enterprising promoters did not
make money I am truly sorry for they
thoroughly deserved it.
At the southeast corner of the
Royal Athletic grounds is a property
occupied by Mr. Jesse Longfield,
music teacher. I don't suppose that
when he purchased or leased the property, whichever may be the case, he
figured on the establishment of the
Royal Athletic Grounds and free
shows, but this did not deter him
from taking what most people will
consider a mean advantage of the promoters of the Pain show by issuing
invitations to some sixty or seventy
of his friends and patrons to witness
it from the safe and inexpensive seclusion of his premises. One would
have thought that a man who earns
his living in an honourable manner in
a community would have been amenable to the sentiment expressed in
the old proverb, "Live and let live,"
but no such feelings of delicacy influenced Mr. Longfield. Not only did
he invite a crowd to his house for the
occasion, but he erected a miniature
grandstand in order that they might
the more easily look over the fence,
and he converted the barn into a sort
of royal box and actually had a special window cut in it. The net result
of this outburst of generosity on the
part of Mr. Jesse Longfield, teacher
of music, was to give a free show to
some sixty or seventy of his friends
by iheaiis which would hardly pass
muster according to the standard of
the Golden Rule and which presumably cost the promoters of the Pain
show, sixty or seventy dollars. Without exception this is one of the cheapest methods of making "friends of
the mammon of unrighteousness" that
has ever come under my notice, and
one wonders whether Mr. Jesse Long-
field or his crowd of friends felt more
like "thirty cents" next morning when
they reflected on their meanness.
A poor man came to see mc with
a chapter of woes on Thursday. He
lives on Pembroke street and recently
had occasion to employ a contractor
to run a branch sewer from the main
to his premises. His allegation is that
before commencing the job the contractor told him that it would cost all
told 40 cents a foot. Me claims that
the total measurement is thirty-foui
feet and that he should have paid
$13.60; as a matter of fact he was
billed $24.35. He claims that the contractor charged him for ten feet more
pipe than he used and for three days
work of labour instead of two, also
that he told him that thc four-inch
pipe which he used cost him 25 cents
a foot, whereas the B, C. Pottery only
quote 18 cents. The bill, according
to the original estimate should have
amounted to $13.60. As a matter of
fact, however, the whole job including
material appears to have cost the contractor about $15. for which he
charges the poor man $24.35. Of
course the whole thing depends on
what the original arrangement was,
and as there does not seem to have*
been any actual contract there is obviously no remedy, but it is dollicult
to resist the conclusion that there has
been an unjustifiable overcharge, for
a profit of $9 on an expenditure of
$15, is a little high even for Victoria,
and I give publicity to these facts as.
a warning to the contractor and also
a hint as to the wisdom of making a
definite agreement for having work
done.
I was one of a dozen who by the
courtesy of Mr. A. T. Goward witnessed a very satisfactory test of the
application of salt water for fire protective purpose at the works of the
B. C. E. R. on Thursday last. A ten-
inch suction had been run into the
Bay and an eight-inch delivery main
laid to various hydrants near to the
Gas Works, the Railway Works and
Sayward's Mill premises. The water
was pumped by an electric engine
operating one of McDougall's turbines. Three lengths of hose had
been attached to one hydrant and two
to another. In fifteen seconds from
the ringing of the signal a splendid
stream of water was being forced
through a vertical nozzle to a height
of from forty to fifty feet, the pressure at the main being 80 lbs. Nozzles
placed horizontally emitted a stream
a distance of 300 feet. The installation has been made for the protection
of the B. C. E. R. and Sayward's Mill.
It was perfectly successful from every
standpoint and there cannot be two
opinions that it is by-far the best arrangement for fighting fires along the
water front and in the business section of this city. The pressure might
with advantage be increased to 100
lbs. for general purposes, although
for the particular purpose for which
this is designed 80 lbs. is sufficient
as the stream overtopped the highest
building. The fire underwriters should
insist on a speedy installation by the
city in the absence of a permanent
gravity system.
Last week I said something about
Miss Murcutt's "faux pas," my Editor
said considerably more, and during
the week her atrocious slander has
been a general topic of conversation.
Now that she has been disowned by
the local Women's Council, it only
remains for the general Council of the
W. C. T. U. to follow suit, and so
put themselves right to the public.
It is a small matter, but I wish to
comment on the really magnificent
strawberry crop which we have had
this summer, I never knew the fruit
so line or so plentiful, and although
it was dear at the start, when it came
down to three boxes fo ra quarter,
no one could possibly complain. I
doubt if finer strawberries are produced anywhere else. A lady of my
acquaintance remarked that the Ma-
goon berries grown on the shores of
Kootenay Lake are the best in the
world. Personally, 1 think it is a toss-
up, and, as Victoria has a few drawbacks, it is not out of place to underline the strawberry crop of 1908.

EIGHT HUNDRED MILLIONS.

Somewhat Mixed.
In the past three years the money
losses by fire in the United States and
Canada aggregated $850,000,000.
. This sum is more than one-third the
total cost of the war between Russia
and Japan.
It is only $100,000,000 less than the
net public debt of the United States.
It is more than one-half of all the
gold in the United States. It is equal
to all the gold in Great Britain and
Austria-Hungary combined. It is
$250,000,000 more than the net ordin
ary receipts of the United States in a
year.
It is nearly equal to the total capita
stocks, paid in, of the national banks
of the United States.
It is $175,000,000 more than the dutiable imports of the United States in a
year.    It is equal to all the gold im
ported into the United States  since
1896.
Helped the Panic.
There has been burned up in the
past three years in the United States
and Canada as much as would equal
three-fourths of the value of all the
cotton exported in the same period.
If the $850,000,000 lost by fire in the
United States were divided between
the present population of the United
States, the loss would amount to very
nearly $10 for each man, woman and
child.
Of course, included in this enormous total of $850,000,000 is the fearful loss entailed by the San Francisco
lire in April, 1906.
But even if we excluded the cost
of that catastrophe, the fires of three
years would aggregate in the neighbourhood of $600,000,000, a sum so
vast that it almost staggers belief.
Can it be for a moment questioned
that the tremendous waste by fire occasioned in these three years contributed mightily to the making of the
panic from which the country is now
suffering?

"What, what, what?" demanded

"Sir." screamed the flustered novice, "shall I sew you to a sheet?"

In   the   passing   of   Grovor
rover Cleveland, the United States
leveland.    loses. one 0f the ablest men
who has filled the Presidential
hair for many years.   He may not have
sen animated by the high impulse and
fty   enthusiasm   which   have   inspired
heodore Eoosevelt, nor was he capable
. creating ideals such as those associated
ith the revered name of Lincoln, but
e was a strong, capable ruler, a thorough
ilitician, and a man who understood the
merican people.   His instincts were com-
ercial and no man could have appre-
ated more keenly or with more accurate
ituition the very nuances of that fiscal
)licy which was most consistent with the
rowed determination of the countiy.    If
ie acquisition of great wealth and the
ipid development of the resources of his
nntry were laudable objects, then Cleve-
nd more than any other President con-
ibuted directly to the attainment of both
suits.    Towards the end of his second
rm lie lost control of his party and his
•estige suffered in consequence.    When
e Senate in the last days of his admin-
tration refused to confirm one of his
ost important fiscal measures, the limit

inced by his sensational message in the
enezuelan affair.    The verdict of pos-
rity will probably be that this was not,
some would have us believe, a hasty
lid impulsive act, but a crafty move in
le game of home politics intended to
Illy to his support all the disaffected and
liti-British element of his country.   That

lie solely to the remarkable sagacity and
Irbearance of Lord Salisbury.    Without

own Lots.
The critics of the Provincial Government are up 10
arms betimes with referen  ■
to the sale of the Prin • •
upert town lots.   Their attitude savour..
t a little of trying to cross the bridge
fore they come to it.    Although no offi-
al announcement has been made the Van-
uver press has stated with authority that
e sale of the Government lots at the
rand Trunk Pacific terminus is to be
ltrnsted to Mr. C. D. Rand, a well known
state agent.    It is pro-
lable that if any other method of disusing of tlie lots had been announced it
ould have furnished just as much food
r hostile criticism, and therefore no one
ed be alarmed at the attitude of the
'ess which is expected to find fault with
•erything the Government does.    It is
orthy of note that the criticism has been
rected wholly at the supposed intention
the Government to dispose of the lots
private treaty  instead of by public
etion.   Not a word has been said against
r. Rand whose reputation as a business
an of integrity is well established in the
li'ovince.   So that if there were any points
favour of private sale the Government
mid seem to have made a wise choice in
agent.    The only reasonable objection
his appointment whicli has been urged
that since a Vancouver Agent handled
. sale of the Point Grey lands, some
lictoria firm should have been favoured
lith the Prince Rupert business.     This
leins to The AVeek a reasonable view to
Ike and one which will no doubt be reprc-
EDITORIAL
sented to the Government through the proper channels. Meanwhile it is understood
that the Chief Commissioner will himself
pay a visit to Prince Rupert on an early
date in order to investigate various departmental matters and incidentally to determine finally the method to be adopted
for the disposal of the town lots. That
he will arrive at a wise decision after hearing all that can be said on both sides of
the question may safely be counted on.

made in the disposition of
the Chinese Head Tax by the Laurier Government. True the proposal as it first
came from Ottawa was not as definite as
it might have been and left a loop-hole
for the possible enrichment of other Provinces at the expense of British Columbia.
Mr. Borden, however, was fully alive to
the interests of this Province and the modification which has been made on his suggestion should be entirely satisfactory. It
is in effect that British Columbia will receive one-half the head tax in every instance and that the other half will be receivable by the Province in which the im-

the local Council of Women in disowning
any responsibility for Miss Murcutt's utterances, indeed a very gratifying letter
written by Mrs. Day, the President, makes
it quite clear that Miss Murcutt did not
appear in Victoria under their auspices,
but was sent by the General Council of
the AV. C. T. U. This is entirely satisfactory and indeed no one expected any
other position to be taken up by the ladies 1
of Victoria. It would be uncharitable to
assume that the Council of the W.C.T.U.
entertained different views, in fact no right
minded body of women in the civilized
world would for a moment endorse the
statement of Miss Murcutt or believe that
it contained a particle of truth. The
Week has taken care that the various press
reports referring to Miss Murcutt's action
shall reach tho Council of the W.C.T.U.,
and confidently waits decisive action by
that body. The obstacles in the way of
legitimate reform are sufficiently numerous

migrant is rated. Surely this is fair!
The "raison d'etre" of the tax was that
the Chinaman was an undesirable immigrant, inimical to the interests of the Province, and who, if hc were to be tolerated
at all, should be taxed in consideration of
these deficiencies. Why the Province
should receive compensation for an injury
which is not inflicted on it seems rather
difficult to understand. If the Chinaman
does not locate here he is neither a burden nor a menace, whereas he is both to
some other province, according to the view
held by those who promulgated the tax.
If the advocates of the tax are sincere, and
they have alleged their genuine motive for
wishing to tax the Chinese, then they
would bo glad to get rid of him, ancl if
so it is not easy to see why British Columbia, which simply affords him an
avenue to the Interior should both bo rid
of the nuisance and retain thc tax. Thc
fact of the case is that the papers whieh
have taken this stand are just a little more
zealous for once than the circumstances
demand and just a little too oblivious of
the rule of fair play which should be observed, even between provinces. The "via

Borden's suggestion seems eminently fair
and leaves no possible grounds for criticism, although there is always room for
bickering.
The decision of the Su-
A Disquieting ln.eme Court of British Col-
Decision, umbia to grant a new trial
in the case of George
Walkem will produce a very disquieting
affect throughout the Province, and while
it, may appear almost presumptuous to
differ from the ruling of the two learned
Judges who are responsible for that decision, it is impossible not to be impressed
by the very able dissenting judgment delivered by Mr. Justice Morrison. The
appeal was a purely technical one and the
subtleties of the argument altogether outside the range of newspaper discussion.
Mr. Joseph Martin presented the Appeal
with marked ability and tlie points upon
whicli he chiefly relied were accepted by
the Court. The first was that counselling
to commit a crime is not in itself of necessity a crime; and that if the act counselled is committed outside the jurisdiction
of the country in which the counselling
takes place, the former is not an offence
amenable to tho laws of the country. Even
to the lay mind it would seem as if this
legal apothegm is not unlimited in its
application, and Mr. Justice Morrison was
able to cite a case in which an English
Court had held to the contrary when murder was the crime. It would only need a
little moving of the line to include abortion, and since the line is obviously not
clearly defined, it is open to doubt whether
the principle enunciated governs the present case. The other point is that this
is one of those offences in which the evidence of an accomplice does not require
corroboration, * but Mr. Martin contended
that since the trial Judge declared that
he found corroboration and emphasized its.
influence upon his mind, it was open to.
argue the sufficiency of the corroboration,
and if he could demonstrate its inadequacy to demand, at least, a new trial.
A majority of the court decided in Mr.
Martin's favour on both points. Public
opinion will receive a shock if through illegal technicality Walkem escapes his well
merited punishment, since there is no suggestion that the act was not committed,
and no serious attempt to dissociate him
from connivance.

But although a prominent politician for

at any rate his supporters did, for by
making an unreasonable personal attack on
Mr. G. 0. Buchanan, one of the1 most respected men in the Kootenays, he split the
Convention into two factions, and thereby
lost whatever chance cither he or Mr.
Buchanan had of being nominated. His
latest exploit is to predict the success of
Smith Curtis and Duncan Ross. The

well as Mr. Deane, and is reinforced in its
opinion by the utterances of Premier McBride and the Hon. Dr. Young. Of course
it is only an opinion, but unless all evidence is belied, Mr. Burrill will have an
easy win in Yale, and if tho best candidate

Native life here is very attractive
id entertaining on account   of   its
jvelty to a visitor. Travelling is rea-
inable, whether in the city by rick-

icks, and wonderful loads they are
ble to handle, but the brake is so
•ranged  to  prevent  the  cart  from

ards.    They evidently have realized
f experience that there is no danger
f  the   bullock  being  compelled   by
ny reasonable load to move out of

to to mention that the Neopolitan

ould happen in this world would be

id judging from my experience  of
ie breed, there is no doubt that thc
eopolitan horse owner is quite right
his diagnosis of that animal's charter, in respect to the danger to be
)pre'nended of its exceeding an  or-
nary  gait.    Polyandry  exists  to  a
msiderable extent amongst the Sing-
ilese.   For my part I think it a pre-
rable system to either polygamy or
onogamy.    In the lirst place not a
an in a thousand can manage one
ife, much less half a dozen, while

imber of husbands. Then again how

On   my   return from Sigiriya,  reined by Mrs. B. at Nuwara Eiliya, a
alth  resort, some 6,000 feet above
a   level,  one    goes    through    the
:art of the tea-planting district-; in
:tting   there,   and the most pictur-
que part of the island, consisting of
ountains,  valleys  and  rivers.    The
st  part  of  the  journey  is  accoiu-
ished by a little two and a half-foot
lage railway,   which   ascends   over
roo feet in about live miles, winding
and out, backwards and forwards
the    most ingenious way up the
ountains,  leaving a  trail like  that
a  serpent.    Only stayed a  week
ere, and in my opinion it was  so
|uch time wasted.   Rained every day,
id besides, there was nothing of in-
Irest in the neighbourhood to a Bnt-

lothed  with   evergreens,   instead  of
jmi-tropical vegetation,    one    could

On Rulers.
The Republican Convention which
recently met in Chicago, with a practically unanimous voice, nominated
Mr. Taft as the candidate of the
Party at the next Presidential election. It is almost certain that Mr.
Bryan will be the nominee of the
Democratic Party. In no country in
the world is the election of its titular
ruler so entirely in the hands of the
people. Thc intricate system of primaries carries the voting power back
to a comparatively small coterie in
every ward of every city, and in every
village of every rural district. From
this small beginning the tide of popular acclaim rolls onward until it culminates in a great representative convention which voices beyond any
question the wishes of the Party, and
yet in the United States in spite of
its perfect political machinery, there
is the same unknown and unmeasure-
able factor as exists elsewhere, that
of the silent vote. But for this it
would be possible to pronounce with
absolute certainty who thc next President will bc, but in spite of the preponderating impression in favour of
Mr. Taft, there will be some element
of doubt until the last vote is
counted.
lt is impossible to avoid comparing
the elaborate system of choosing a
new ruler which prevails in the Southern Republic, with the peaceful and
uneventful succession to the throne in
countries where Constitutional Monarchy prevails. There is no sense ill
which the President of the United
States is more truly the choice of the
people than is thc case with King Edward, because although the latter succeeded to thc throne by right of birth,
the British Constitution provides for
his deposition in a maimer which
would be just as speedy and effective
as his accession. His personal popularity has no bearing upon the question of his constitutional tights or
those of his subjects, and the idea that
an elective ruler can be got rid of
more easily than an hereditary one is
a contention without foundation. Not
a few writers have been impressed
with certain developments in connection with thc latest nominee of thc
Republican Party in thc States. English papers in particular havc pointed
out that Mr. Taft is more truly thc
selection of President Roosevelt than
the nominee of the Republican Party,
and that under the circumstances his
election, whilst not in any sense violating the American Constitution,
would nevertheless mark an appreciable concession to the principle of
Monarchical Government.
It may or may not be true but it is
generally belie 1 that President
Roosevelt forced Mr. Taft upon the
Party and made it clear in the alternative he would take the field himself.
The significance of this is that for
the first time in the history of the
States the Republican Party and possibly as the elections may ultimately
show, the country has practically accepted dictatorship at the hands of the
most resolute and determined man
who has ever occupied the Presidential chair. The outcome will be interesting to watch. If the relative positions of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft
are to be as outlined above, a time
of unrest if not of disquiet may be anticipated. The world knows the worst
and possibly the best of the President; he is a strong determined, sincere man, full of enthusiasm and enthusiasms. The responsibilities of oflice have barely sufficed to check them
within the safety limit. Rid. of these
responsibilities, and represented by a
man who is both his nominee and devotee, his zeal for reform may lead
him into greater excesses as "deus
ex machina" than any he has perpetrated as President. There is, however, another side to the picture, while
Taft is an immeasurably weaker personality than Roosevelt he will be an
exception to all the men who have
preceded him if the responsibilities do
Snot increase his stature. After all if
he is big* enough he can fill the seat,
aud in spite of the extravagances
which are so characteristic of the
great, new rich nation which he seeks
to govern, there has always been a
sufficient leaven to preserve the best
characteristics of the Anglo-Saxon
race and to sustain in the noblest
performance of his duty the man who
has been called to the helm of the
nation. For this reason there is no
room for pessimism at the* advent ot
Mr. Taft. The very fact that he has
been chosen by the President is at
least an endorsation of personal character. The action of the Convention
may fairly be regarded as an endorsation of fitness, and if this is subsequently confirmed by a majority of
his fellow countrymen the moral influence of their choice will endow
him with all the confidence and courage necessary for the discharge of all
duties of his office.

In our Bedstead Department we
have just unpacked a large shipment
of new bedsteads both brass and iron.
They are works of art, yet practical
in construction; the tubes, filling
rods, castings and pillars are of the
very finest materials, the workmanship is the best. You can easily
match your bedroom furnishings.
There are Bedsteads for mansion or
cottage, for hotel or apartment house,
for hospital or camp—all priced low.
We should like you to examine these
bedsteads, then see if you can get
better value elsewhere; we welcome
comparisons and competition; they
nerve us to greater and better efforts
in our own and your interests. We
have nothing to hide, bring an expert
with you and take his verdict.
Recently a great advance has been made in the
construction of roll top desks. You know the
present style with the pedestals flush on the floor,
impossible to sweep under without moving the
desk. The SANITARY roll top desk is built on
short legs—it is easy to brush the dust and litter
from down under. We are showing a very fine
shipment of these new desks. Come in and see
them, even if you are not wanting a new office
desk it is as well to be abreast of the times and
see what up-to-date business men are using in
other cities. The desks are on the fourth floor.
We have priced these new desks very low, viz.,
$25.00 up.

Comment.
The   Victoria   Baseball   Club   has
lin demonstrated its ability to de-
it the best semi-professional nine
t can be got to meet them. The
me last Saturday when the locals
nded a defeat to the Nationals of
attle has proved this without a
estion of doubt and from now on
am looking for the locals to go
rough without a loss. The game
is replete with sensational plays,
it was somewhat marred by the
ntinual objections to the decisions
the referee. This will not tend
advance the popularity of the game
this city and the sooner the players
ilize this the better it will be for
e team as a whole.
The result of the game demonstrat-
fully that the locals have in Sur-
ce one of the headiest pitchers on
[e Coast.   I am not giving this out
hot air, but am writing from per-
nal observation and if any one of
teams in the Northwest League
|mld not willingly take Surplice on
staff then I miss my guess.    He
cool,  collected, has lots of speed
uses excellent judgment, and in
ition  fields  his  position  in  good
e.   All these qualities go to make
a good pitcher and it can be safe-
said that Surplice without excep-
n possesses them all.

is is the kind of team that is up-
pding the honour of the Capital
;y of B. C, but yet the citizens do
t   take   sufficient   interest   in   the
game to turn out in numbers large
enough to enable the management to
meet expenses. I am greatly surprised at this, for Victoria has always
enjoyed the reputation of being the
heart of true sport on the Pacific
Coast and to have such.a meagre attendance is a blot on the reputation
of the city. A game will be played
this afternoon at Oak Bay when the
locals will go up against the Atheltics
of Seattle and if they should win, it
will entitle them to the title of amateur champions of the Pacific Northwest. With this game as an attraction I hope the citizens will attend
in such numbers as to enable the
management to at least clear expenses. The game will start at 3
o'clock and will be played rain or
shine.
In connection with the meagre
crowds that have been attending thc
baseball games the citizens of this
city have been deprived of the pleasure of witnessing two of the Northwest League teams playing here. An
indirect offer to bring the Vancouver
team and one other team to this city
to play has been made, but after last
Saturday those who made the suggestion are not prepared to make any
move. For example, during the week
day games at Vancouver the attendance has not been lower than 1,500
and on Saturdays the total attendance
has reached as high as 5,000, and the
best that has been done here this
season is not more than 700. On the
face of this it would be absurd to
attempt to bring two visiting teams
to this city.
the part of the locals and the New
Westminster boys will realize that
they have a team against them when
they meet next Saturday.
The first real interesting cricket
of the season was played at the Jubilee Hospital grounds last Saturday
when the local players administered a
severe drubbing to the present champions. The locals i displayed far better form than on the Saturday previous when a defeat was handed out
by the Garrison. On the whole the
showing made was very gratifying and
I am of the opinion that the glories
that were lost by the local club last
year will again perch on the club banners after the cricket week which will
this year tak/i place in this city.

holds its second annual tournament on
Saturday, July 4, the Portland Club
un Tuesday, July 14, and the Vancouver Club on July 20. Tacoma and
Everett slip into the following month,
the former being slated for August 3,
and the latter for August 10. There
will be a number of Victoria players
engaged at most if not all of these
events. The first of the home and
home matches between Victoria and
outside clubs will lake place on Tuesday, June 30, when six players will
journey to Duncans to antagonize thc
Cowichan club.

A. A. oarsmen are training faithfully
and I would not be surprised to see
the "Big Four" capture the trophy
which for many years rested in this
city, but which for the last two years
has been missing.
The local boys must remember that
they have a great reputation at stake
and should let nothing interfere with
their chances of winning the championship. The eyes of all lovers of
good clean sport in this city rests
upon them and it is up to them to
see that the trust that has been placed with them has not been misplaced.

Noir was a densely ignorant man,
anil nearly every word in the challenge was misspelled. Thc statesman
responded with the following letter;
Dear Sir—You have called me out,
without any good reason. I have,
therefore, thc choice of weapons. I
choose the spelling book, and you
are a dead 111,111." The duel was never
fought. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1908.

trimmed with real lace and a lace
veil. Her bridesmaids, Miss Lena

They both wore large picture hats
and carried beautiful bouquets. The
bridegroom was supported by Dr.

masses of fern and roses. The wedding breakfast was served in the
dining-room, the table being arranged with bowls of daisies and ferns
with streamers of smilax and lotus
flowers. The bridegroom's gift to the
bride was a beautiful hoop of diamonds and pearls and to the bridesmaids a pearl pendant and an amethyst bracelet. Both the best man

The  Sunset  Fold.
(By  Charles   Henry  Cheslcy)
Far away to the West is a region of
rest,
Fenced in by rare roseate beams,
And its shimmering sands never mortal   has   pressed
Except in deep mystical dreams.
And the arrest of treasures are stored
away there,
Far down on the rubiate shore,
But those who have sought for thc
jewels so fair
Are sleeping to waken 110 more.
For a story is told of the treasures
that gleam
From   rocks   on   the  reach   of  the
bay,
And the  diamonds  that  glist  in  the
westering beam,
When  sun sinks at fading of day.
Ah, how oft havc I dreamed of that
zephyrus strand,
With treasures and mythical glow,
And how oft have 1 longed to away
to that land,
To rest  where balmy winds blow,

When    the    sweet    summer    sunset
spreads over the lea,
And calmness comes into the soul,
Then   I   fain   would  launch   out  on
the turbulent sea,
To anchor where waves never roll.
It is not for the jewels of wonderful
worth,
Nor yet for the silver and gold,
But this: to escape from the fevers
of earth
And rest in a sheltering fold.

In the past three years the money
losses by fire in the United States and
Canada   aggregated   $850,000,000.
This sum is more than one-third the
total cost of the war between Russia
and Japan.
It is only $100,000,000 less than the
net public debt of the United States.
It is more than one-half of all thc
gold in the United States. It is equal
to all the gold in Great Britain and
Austria-Hungary combined. It is
$250,000,000 more than the net ordin
ary receipts of the United States in a
year.
It is nearly equal to the total capital
stocks, paid in, of the national banks
of the United States.
It is $175,000,000 more than the duti
able imports of the United States in a
year.    It is* equdl to all the gold im
ported  into the'United  States  since
1896. j
Helped the Panic.
There has been burned up in th
past three years: in the United States
and Canada as much as would equal
three-fourths of the value of all the
cotton exported in the same period.
If the $850,000,000 lost by fire in the
United States were divided between
the present population of the United
States, the loss would amount to very
nearly $10 for each man, woman and
child.
Of course, included in this enormous total of $850,000,000 is the fearful loss entailed by the San Francisco
fire in April, 1906.
But even if we excluded the cost
of that catastrophe, thc fires of three
years would aggregate in the neighbourhood of $600,000,000, a sum so
vast that it almost staggers belief.
Can it be for a moment questioned
that the tremendous waste by fire oc
casioned in these three years contributed mightily to the making of the
panic from which the country is now
suffering?
world. Personally, I think it is a toss-
up, and as Victoria has a few drawbacks, it is not out of place to underline the strawberry crop of 1908.
