THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1912
Tenth Year
One Dollar Per Annum
|TELCOMEr—In its last issue The
••y    Week made reference to the approaching visit of H. R. H. the
te of Connaught, Governor-General of
ada. . In this editorial The Week reed briefly to those characteristics which
: endeared the Duke, as they have en-
__ his illustrious brother, to the people.
Week has little further to say, but it
that it would be inappropriate to allow
'day of its publication on September
i to go by without a brief reference to
: will undoubtedly prove to be one of
nost epoch-making events in the, history
ijctoria.  At the time we go to press the
rnor-General and his suite are still on
seas; they will not reach Victoria until
lines have been transmitted to the
fpe; we are, therefore, not in a posi-
;o give any stereotyped description of
.ception which is awaiting him.   But
ilive eyes, and we have seen; we have
ind we have heard, and in our mind
is no doubt but that the Capital City
inada's most progressive Province is
e eve of affording a welcome second
[ione   which   has   been   received   by
Governor-General,   his   Consort   and
ter.   Twenty-two years ago, in the
of 1890, Arthur, Duke of Connaught,
:d Victoria.   He was received at that
by a small and somnolent city, which
jmed him as the son of our Queen.
'ity years have since lapsed and the
: comes amongst us once more.   Not as
on of the late Queen, but as the repre-
tive of his own nephew.   He will no-
Ipiany changes in Victoria;   business
ises,   offices,   dwelling   houses   have
[ig up in those places which he knew
■e as waste; on every hand he will see
nces of Victoria's growing prosperity,
/ill see stately ships lying at anchor at
Outer Wharf, but there is one thing
he will not find changed in our city,
hat is the spirit of loyalty and attach-
to the Throne which is such a dis-
lishing mark of Victoria and citizens,
the Royal visitors carry away with
li pleasant memories and be spared to
. again for a renewal of Victoria's testily of affection.
OOK   BEFORE   LEAPING—The
..   Prime Minister of British Columbia
has answered an appeal from the
couver Branch of the Navy League for
jjtional financial aid toward the equip-
j. and maintenance of the training ship
|ia by advising Captain Eddie and his
orkers in a good cause to state their
[ to the Dominion authorities, which is
wwer paramount in all defence affairs,
[vhich the training of a generation of
g sea fighters for the protection of the
le coast line should be an important
lire.   This course will be adopted and
I ill have the heartiest support of the
J'incial Government and also of Provin-
Irepresentatives in the Dominion parlia-
Meanwhile, however, the Branch at
|Terminal City will come again to the
Government asking a per capita grant
the pupil sailors.   The course of the
pouver citizens in all this Egeria matter
en to criticism, no matter how sincerely
|nay applaud the meritorious nature of
intentions and policy.   When aid was
|i them from the Provincial Treasury in
that the Egeria might be acquired
tommissioned, assurance was forthcom-
Ihat adequate funds for maintaining the
[an survey ship as a training vessel were
guaranteed and that there would be
irther call upon Provincial generosity
|hat is strictly speaking a federal mat-
ndisputably.   It now appears that the
Ich has   an   indebtedness   of   several
pand dollars, that a thousand dollars or
of  the subscribed  fund  has  never
paid up, and  that a  thousand  per
lh at least will be required to maintain
Egeria effectively and usefully.    These
things should have been looked into at the
outset and provided for. The truth of the
matter seems to be that Vancouver has been
characteristically impetuous and a trifle precipitate, and as a consequence now finds itself open to caustic criticism. To mean
well is admirable, but to weigh all factors
in any public project is simply business discretion. In the case of the Egeria, as with
respect to the sending of the Vancouver
High School cadets on their tour of Australasia, Vancouverites seem to have acted
with childish impetuosity and undesirable
results. The effect of the cadet tour has
been rendered of extremely doubtful worth
to Canada by reason of the mismanagement
of the mission and juvenile whimpering because the Sydney folk did not exhibit a
non-characteristic enthusiasm in advance of
any reason in their eyes for such a demonstration. In both matters Vancouver should
learn a lesson—that while youthful enthusiasm is right and admirable in its place
and degree, adult common sense is also
worthy of some regard.
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE—
In an address delivered at Vancouver City recently, the Minister of
Education, Hon. Dr. Young, took the public
into his confidence with respect to a new
feature of governmental policy which must
commend itself particularly to all practical
ancl progressive citizens. The Government
is merely awaiting, said the Minister, the
presentation of the report of the Federal
Royal Commission on Technical Education,
before revising the Public School Act in
such a manner as to provide for the establishment and maintenance of technical
schools in all parts of the Province. At the
same time it is intended further to so amend
the statutes as to foster and develop the
public night school plan, a plan which has
produced most excellent results during the
past year, not only at Vancouver but
throughout the country. The carrying out
of plans now in development with respect
to the public schools will go far toward
emphasizing the scientific progressiveness of
present day educational policy in British
Columbia under the very practical and
capable administration of the Minister.
Provision of complete facilities for imparting thorough knowledge of manual arts and
crafts and industrial professional science,
in the public schools, will, in the opinion
of many, go further toward the equipment
of future generations of British Columbians
to play creditably and profitably their part
in Imperial and world affairs than even the
University. If expectations are realized,
and the Minister is enabled to carry out his
beneficial policy, another decade should see
the youth of British Columbia placed in
possession of such machinery for self-
advancement as that which has given industrial and scientific Germany its notable leadership in economic affairs. And future generations at least will pay delated acknowledgment to a far-sighted Minister. If one
stops to analyze what Hon. Dr. Young
has unostentatiously done and is doing for
British Columbia in his perfection of
modern methods in educational, hospital and
kindred work, it will be realized that it is
very much.
MR. SCULLIN REPUDIATED—
The annual convention representative of the organized workers of
Canada, just held at Guelph and which has
again honoured Mr. J. C. Watters of this
city by choosing him as president of the
Congress (congratulations to him) adopted
one resolution which is of especial interest
to British Columbians generally. It was
with respect to the self-suggested activities
of Mr. Patrick Scullin through his Industrial Peace Association. As The Week has
pointed out on various occasions, this association to a very large extent is Mr. Patrick
Scullin.   It ostensibly seeks to promote the
reconciliation of the conflicting views and
interests of Labour and Capital by assuming
to do what the Dominion Government has
undertaken to do in this connection, and has
(in the opinion of the Congress at all
events) provided machinery for. Such being the case, the necessity for Mr. Scullin's
organization is not exactly apparent and
colour is lent to the suggestion that personal interest may not be an altogether
negligible factor. What organized labour
thinks about it is crystallized in a resolution
adopted by the Congress in which not only
was the Industrial Peace Association utterly discredited, but any member of represented organized labour lending its support
was thereby rendered ineligible for office in
the Congress.
GROUNDHOG—An announcement of
the very greatest importance to
British Columbia was made incidentally by Sir Richard McBride in the
course of his address, as Minister of Mines,
at the recent convention here of the Canadian Mining Institute. This was that, as a
result of the very recent investigation of the
Groundhog Mountain coal areas conducted
by the Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. W.
Fleet Robertson, the Department has reason to believe that previous expectations as
to both the extent and the value of the new
field will be not only realized but surpassed.
When one recalls that at the last Session of
the Legislature, in debating the Budget programme, the First Minister informed the
House that these coal measures of the Provincial New North gave promise of eclipsing all other American coal fields west of
Pennsylvania, the magnitude of their importance as part of the public domain may
be in a measure comprehended. Facilities
of ingress by means of roads and trails are
now being provided with commendable despatch, and railways will follow the waggon
roads with twentieth century eagerness, so
that the Groundhog coal mines should within a very few years take their place among
the foremost industrial features of this
richly endowed province.
NO HELL—A catastrophe has befallen the Christian Church; a representative body of Presbyterian
Divines has decreed that there is no hell.
Such an announcement, coming fifty years
ago, would have laid the Christian world
shuddering and aghast, but such is the effect
of the trend of modern public feeling and
the enlightening sensibilities of the average church-goer today, that such a stupendous promulgation fails to awaken that
'revolution in the minds of men which it
might be calculated to do. "There is no
hell." What would have our forefathers
have done without the gloomy anticipation
in which they so frequently indulged respecting a place of torment? Without a
hell, where would have been the use of
hiding away toys and interesting books on
a Sunday, merely allowing the children of
the household the doubtful pleasure and
still more dubious enjoyment of Fox's Book
of Martyrs and Gustave Dore's illustrations
to the Inferno? Without a hell in prospect
our own childhood might have been
measureably happy; let us trust that this
most-recent dictum of a strait-laced church
may be the means of bringing happiness to
thousands who would have otherwise have
grown up in the full belief that there was
real fire, a real Devil, and a very real
pitchfork lurking in the hereafter.
SEWER INVESTIGATION—Investigations are of two kinds; they may
be held to reveal the truth, and they
may be held to conceal it. It all depends
on the attitude assumed by the investigators
and by the gullibility of the public. Just
now an investigation has been concluded
which dealt with the matter of the sewers
in Victoria, and it would seem that the in
vestigators have presumed on the gullibility
of the people of Victoria. A vast amount
of money has been expended and the work
on the sewers is still to be finished. Let it
be taken for granted that the people of Victoria are not worrying as to the details of
the expenditure. Let us say that it is no
good throwing good money after bad.
Somebody has made a mistake somewhere,
and the money is gone and the sewers are
not completed. Let it go at that. But, and
it is a big "but," if the latter are not completed now, we shall have to wait another
year and the delay will mean the expenditure of more money. With the advent of
the wet weather it will be impossible to
finish the sewer work. Quicksands will be
encountered and there will be a constant
filtering of money for no results. Incidentally, there will be damages to pay. We
are an easy-going folk and if the authorities
will put a clean-cut proposition to the ratepayers, the latter will respond. Let them
say that there has been a muddle; that
someone has been to blame, but that for
the future there will be no ground for complaint. Let them ask for the necessary
$20,000, which is, roughly speaking, the
amount required, and let them go ahead
with the honest determination to "make
good." The result will be of infinitely more
value to the suffering rate-payers than any
number of investigations which deceive nobody, least of all the people who have to
see their time, money and credit evaporating
what time they are being held.
A PLEA FOR JUSTICE—Can anyone in authority, without betrayal of
official'confidences, inform the long-
suffering residents of the Foul Bay section
why it is that, although adequate facilities
have long ago and oft been petitioned for
by them, no provision has as yet been made
either for a postal sub-station or for that
commonest of all such conveniences—post
boxes? Two years or so ago, when Hollywood was a name new in Victorians' ears
and the casual citizen was apt to lazily inquire "where is this Hollywood," the
pioneer settlers there petitioned the authorities for a branch post office. Since then
they have on several occasions revived that
petition. There are permanently domiciled
in the interested district upwards of three
hundred families. In order to post a letter
they must walk at least three-quarters of a
mile to the nearest letter box—either at the
corner of Moss Street and Fairfield Road
or at the corner of Oak Bay Avenue and
Foul Bay Road. Their rates and taxes are
the same as those paid by other citizens
whose rights and convenience obtain more
favourable attention. If there is any reason
why they should bc made the victims of
exceptional and seemingly discriminatory
treatment in the matter of postal facilities,
the directors of this department of the
public service might fairly advise them as
to the nature of the obstacle, and save them
at least the vexation and the trouble of frequent petitioning to the deaf, the dumb and
the blind.
COMIC OPERA—ln another department of the current issue The Week
has given voice to the very general
feeling of pleasure which pervaded Victoria
last week, when the Gilbert & Sullivan
comic operas were revived. Probably no
city on this Continent could better realize
the treat which was given in the Victoria
Theatre to those habitual patrons who have
grown weary of wasting shoe-leather on
mediocre performances. De Wolff Hopper
and his company gave a rendering of comic
opera which was in every way superlative
and the theatre-going public of Victoria
have now had their appetites whetted for
those good things which are, as we hope,
not too far away in the dim and distant
future. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1912
I feel a criminal in that I have few
kicks to register at this time when
we are all putting on our glad rags
in honour of the visit of our Gov
-ernor-General. But Loungers, like
all the rest of mankind, have a duty
to fulfil, and I should not be worthy
of myself, nor (and this is of much
more importance to me) should I
earn my daily bread, if I did not point
out those little abuses which are so
frequently cropping up in our very
midst. My attention has lately been
drawn to a nauseating condition
which prevails at the corner of Mears
and Vancouver Streets. It appears
that there are some disused stables
in this neighbourhood and that they
are nightly occupied by hordes of
Dagoes, who, being without any sanitary facilities, empty their slops into
the surface drain. This complaint
was made to me by a resident in the
neighbourhood, -who vouched for the
the unsavoury odour thereby occasioned. I inspected the premises myself, but, as it was mid-day, and the
sun had had a chance to exert its
purifying influence, I was personally
unconscious of the effluvium complained of. I can well understand,
however, how unpleasant and how unsanitary such a state of affairs must
be, and I sincerely trust that the Alderman in whose Ward this district
lies will take immediate steps to have
this nuisance abolished.

I was privileged this week to see
the Illuminated Address which will
have been presented to the Duke of
Connaught by the time these lines are
read. As it is probable that very few
of my readers will have been similarly fortunate, I think that they may be
interested to hear, something about it.
The address is the work of Mr.
Charles Budden, ion Government
Street, who is well known in Victoria
as a miniaturist. The work is being completed entirely by hand, and
bordering the words of the address
are the arms of the various Provinces
of the Dominion. At the head is a
tasteful display of the Ducal, Imperial,
Georgian, and Canadian Flags. The
Fourteenth Century Style has been
preserved throughout, and those people who know anything at all about
illuminated work will realize that it
was in this century that Art of this
nature reached its zenith,

The news came with the joy which
always accompanies that which is unexpected that the Devonian Society
had leapt into the breach both literally and figuratively. If it had not
been for these sturdy sons of Devon,
that perpetual eyesore, commonly
known as the "burnt area," which, as
many people think, stands as a lasting
reproach to one of our leading citizens, would have reared its nakedness in front of Ducal eyes and made
Victoria a laughing stock to the hundreds who are at present visiting her.
I regret that I am not a Devonian; I
can but claim distant kinship with one
of her most prominent sons, but in
order that their act in redeeming Victoria's plague spot, may not go down
to posterity unnoticed, I beg to publish the following lines contributed by
a devout admirer:
A   DEVONSHIRE   MAN   HAS
HIS SAY
Yiss, fai, 'twas a cruel shame, 'an the plaace
looked mortal bad,
An' ycrc we'd the Dook a-comin', an us rack-

As the Committee of Enquiry into
the Sewerage muddle appears to have
enlarged its scope and to be investigating general waste and inefficiency
throughout the Municipal Works Department it might well look into the
matter of the road fill in Burnside
Road. The history, as we have it, is
instructive and if much more of this
sort of thing had taken place we
verily believe the town would have
speedily been bankrupt. Burnside
Road was let by contract to the Canadian Mineral Rubber Co., who also
had the work of laying the tracks for
the B. C. E. Railway. A portion of
the road crosses a gulch, necessitating a considerable fill. In some manner or other the gulch was filled and
the tracks laid on their bed of concrete; curbing and guttering was also
put down. And then, after some winter rains, a curious unforseen incident
occurred. The earth filling actually
began to settle, breaking up yards and
yards of curb and gutter and turning
the tramway tracks into an aerial
railway. The Authorities at the City
Hall decided that if earth was going
to behave in this unmannerly way
they must confine it, so at great expense trenches were dug on either
side of the embankment and massive
retaining walls were built therein.
After this the tramway tracks were
put right and the road paved, but,
alas, the latest report is that the earth
had not quite finished its settlement
and is even now gradually subsiding.
The Week is by no means a technical
paper nor does the Lounger profess
a deep knowledge of engineering but
the fact that earth settles when deposited in a heap, unless in a proper
manner, is a matter of common
knowledge. For a blunder of this nature there is no excuse and the officials responsible should be relieved of
their duties if this has not already
been done.
* *   *
I always knew we were asleep, and
I always knew that the hardest
sleepers in our community were the
Mayor and Council, but I never thoroughly realized how sleep-bessotted
the whole community was until I
found that the Imperial Cadets, who
were on a voyage of discovery from
Ocean to Ocean, had never received
an invitation to visit the Westernmost City of the Dominion. But so
it was; the boys reached Vancouver;
the local Chapter of the Daughters of
the Empire had here, as in every other
city the Cadets visited, macfe all arrangements to provide entertainments
and a jolly good time, but the boys
came not—and for why, the Mayor
and Council had not thought of inviting them. It may not be a great
loss, either to Victoria or to the boys,
but it seems a pity that, when you
have one hundred young, healthy,
growing, observant, eager, and lots
of other adjectives which you can
supply for yourselves, boys, all waiting eagerly on the eastern shores of
the Gulf, the thoughtlessness or the
niggardliness, or the general don't-
care-a-damness of a Mayor and Council should prevent the whetting of
their appetites and the further advertising of our own city.

Too little time is given now-a-days
to a careful appreciation of what is
artistic. Man wants but little here
below, but ihe usually wants it at a
moment's notice and he seldom has
time to allow himself the luxury of
picking and choosing. To men of this
class, as well as to the men of that
class who have made their pile and
have the time but not the taste to
choose what is right, the newly established firm of Hallwards, Ltd., will
come a a boon and a blessing.
Messrs. Hallwards are making a specialty of interior furnishing and, being themselves endowed with a keen
appreciation of what is really beautiful in art are in a position to advise
those who cannot advise themselves.
The firm is prepared to undertake the
whole scheming and choosing for a
house, supplying furniture made in
their own. factory, Sheraton and
Jacobean styles being a specialty, and
all that the owner has to do is to say
what price he is prepared to spend.

new in Victoria and Messrs. Hallward have the best wishes of the

acts are apt to be wearisome, but the
vagaries of these two comedians on

Scott & Wilson are comic acrobats,

RUDOLPH GANZ, PSANIST
Appearing at Victoria Theatre, Friday. October 4
the first three days of the week when
her turn was on. Her companions in
vaudeville, called the Black & Tan
Comedian, also scored a big success.
The class of pictures shown this week
lias been well up to the mark, special
mention being due, perhaps, to a great
comedy entitled "A Corner in Whispers." The Essanay Company can
always be relied upon to put out good
films, and in this one they have
eclipsed their previous records.
Romano's Theatre
One ceases to marvel at the wonders of the cinematograph, but even
in this age of amazement it seemed
extraordinary that so soon should we
be able to see the wonderful sight of
the funeral of the late General Booth
flashed upon the screens in our city.
Yet that is what happened this week
at Romano's, and one of the most impressive of modem pictures was on
view last Monday and Tuesday. The
scenes of the funeral procession were
most clear and the sight of thc enormous crowds which turned out to do
honour to their dead benefactor must
have struck many of the spectators
with renewed wonder.
The Majestic Theatre
If all the pictures which came from
the other side of the Line and dealt
so extensively with American exploits
and American flags had the same
quality as that which was seen at the
Majestic Theatre this week, there
would be little outcry. The picture in
question was a magnificent film dealing with Abraham Lincoln's great
oration at Gettysburg, his words being illustrated by incidents of the
combat and by allegorical scenes. It
was a great production and one calculated to do good to men of all nations.
Rudolph Ganz
Celebrated Swiss Pianist
On Friday next, October 4th, the
Victoria Ladies' Musical Club will inaugurate their winter season with a
concert to be given at the Victoria
Theatre by the Swiss pianist, Rudolph
Ganz. The Ladies' Musical Club has
done much during the past two seasons to elevate the standard of the
concerts given in Victoria, and surely, if somewhat slowly, the public has
responded to their efforts. The Capital City can now boast with justification of the artistes who visit her
and it is confidently hoped that the
coming season, which promises in
more ways than one to be a notable
one in Victoria, will see the theatre
well filled when the Club presents
those musical giants whom it has
been fortunate enough to secure.
Starting next Friday, the concert
season lasts till the early spring of
next year. Within that time we shall
be visited by such famous performers
as Mme. Gadski, soprano, who is well
known in Victoria; Mischa Elman,
who has appeared here before; Mme.
Rider-Kelsey, soprano, and Mr.
Claude Cunningham, baritone, who
will be seen in company, and M. Josef L'hevinne, pianist This is indeed
a splendid programme and deserves
all the support that can be afforded.
Victoria loves to be spoken of as a
city which knows goocl music when
it hears it. No excuse will be available if the public do not come forward during the coming months to
show their appreciation of the work
which has been done, and which still
remains to be done, in their behalf by
the Victoria Ladies' Musical Club.
The first virtuoso on the' programme, M. Rudolph Ganz, is not
mentioned amongst the names appearing above, as he is to be so soon
in evidence in the city. Of this great
exponent of the piano who descended
upon New York last November after
an absence of three years, where he
achieved an astonishing success, thc
New York Zeitung, which is perhaps
the most critical regarding music of
the New York papers, says:
"Then came Mr. Ganz, the celebrated Swiss pianist, who played the
Tschaikowsky Concerto with tremendous temperament.
"There was fire and brilliancy in thc
first movement; gracefulness in the
second, and exciting climax in the
third.    He played with a force that

WILLIAM BLAKEMORE, Editor
At The
Exhibition
By Bohemian
As a "Bohemian" I carefully eschew
all set and fixed times and seasons;
' whenever it is proper to do a thing
I invariably neglect to do it; whenever there is a time for not doing a
thing you may be sure that I am
there right in the middle of it. You,
may, therefore, judge of my consternation when the Editor of The Week
told me that my column this week
must be devoted to a story about the
Exhibition at present being held at
the Willows Park.
"Consternation" is but a mild word
for the feeling which obsessed me
when the dread dictum went forth. I
know nothing about shows; I associate them with the old-time "Wakes"
which were held in the Old Country
every year, where nurse maids, farm
labourers and other useful people
were hired out, very much in the same
way as that in which the slaves were
sold in New Orleans. Another vision
of the show pictures to me a procession in which "Jumbo" takes the
leading part; with dainty fairies in
spangles riding on camels' humps, and
little nigger boys trotting gaily behind the gilded wheels of those mysterious chariots, which confine the
denizens of the wilds.
I was well aware that the Victoria
Exhibition would partake of none of
these fearsome features, but, it was
still with a feeling of hesitancy that
I wended my way, by means of a car,
to the Willows Park and unobtrusively presented to the gate keeper
the pass which the Editor of The
Week had so kindly given to me.
' I went as a stranger and I intend
to speak of the Exhibition as a
stranger. The first thing that I noticed was the absence of any crowd.
People seemed to be slipping in and
making their way as quickly as possible to the race course. The Exhibition seemed a secondary consideration in the minds of many who
passed the porters at the gate. Another thing struck me most forcibly;
although there were many touts who
were willing 'to sell programmes of
the races and papers filled with "winners," there appeared to be nobody
in an official position, willing or able,
to direct the unwary stranger to the
various points of interest in the Exhibition itself:
In fact, the casual visitor might
well be pardoned for supposing that
the Exhibition was merely an adjunct
to the races, instead of vice-versa.
Fortunately for myself I knew my
way round, and I naturally entered
the main building where the principal
exhibits are held. At the top of the
stairs, I was met by a fellow townsman who complained bitterly that he
wished to use the telephone but that
he was unable to get change for a
dime. This made me think of the incongruity of placing a telephone
booth in a public place without taking any trouble to see that the public
had a chance of obtaining the necessary change. I might remark, in
passing, that it is extraordinary that
Canada, which produces ninety per
cent, of the nickel used throughout
the world, should have to depend on
the United States for the modicum
wherewith to effect telephone exchange.
And now with regard to the main
building. The annual Exhibition is
advertised as being, not merely Agricultural, but Industrial. This strikes
the passer-by as somewhat anomo-
lous, in view of the fact that the majority   of  the   exhibits   come   either
from the East or from South of the
Line. I counted no less than three
booths exhibiting cooking ranges;
one was from Chicago, one from Milwaukee, and the third, came from
Minneapolis. I quote these ranges
merely as an example. There was
fine electric work, displayed by local
electricians, in rooms furnished from
the East. At the same time some of
our local products were well featured;
and I imagine that if the Committee
were to expend a little more time and
energy in inducing local manufacturers, to take advantage of the Annual Fair, there would be a better
showing of what Victoria itself can
produce.
Of the display of fruit and vegetables I both can and will say little.
To a layman it looked luscious, but I
am no judge, and am well content to
go by the general consensus of
opinion, that this Exhibit was of a
very high order.
One thing gave me keen disappointment; whenever I go to a fair
I invariably find my way to the pigs
and make friends with these most
sociable animals. I had a great deal
of difficulty in finding the pigs last
Wednesday. After tramping up and
down round numerous sheep-pens, I
accosted a jovial looking party and
asked him if he would be kind enough
to direct me to the "hogs."
"Hogs," he said, "What be they?"
"Hogs," I said, "is Hogs, I mean
swine."
"Oh what you mean is pigs and
they are behind the corner."
Eventually I found my pigs, and
very lonely and miserable they looked.
The pens were only half filled, but I
must say that what inhabitants there
were seemed to be in the very pink of
condition.
There was one other feature of the
Exhibition which I wished to see, viz.,
the School-children's exhibit, and
when, after a good deal of hunting
and idle interrogation, I found it, I
was disappointed. It did not seem
to me that it possessed the same variety which it has possessed on previous occasions; there was too much
girls' work and too little boys'.
I say nothing of the horse show
for the excellent reason that I did not
see it, but I understand from all quarters that it has this year achieved
great success.
Before closing my brief retrospect,
I should like to pay a small tribute
to the ladies of t'he W. C. T. U. whose
well appointed tent served tea and
cake to a very weary
Gallant Little
Wales
Written Specially for The Week
hy Gilbert Malcolm Sproat
It was common long ago for many
of the Welsh princes and chieftains
themselves to describe their personal
achievements in a true Bardic, which
was not a fabulous strain, but rather
a lyric concept. Poetry was a sacred
record of the actions of the great.
Not venturing on Druidic times, I
recall some mention of the Bard, or
Minstrel, about the 6th century and
that his appointment required the
sanction of the Eisteddford, meeting,
then, once in three years.
One of the duties of the novice was
to register the genealogies of the
chiefs, but in the higher order this
was optional, though commonly done.
The Bard was restricted to his own
province and was forbidden to engage
in any non-bardic occupation. He depended for his support on hospitality
and gifts. Changes, of course,
occurred as time passed; exactly
when, it is difficult to ascertain, as the
old Welsh writers were careless about
dates.
From the ninth to the twelfth century the first families were classed
by royal authority into 20 tribes, five
called "royal" and fifteen called "common," with a necessary enlargement
of the functions of the genealogists,
whose older duties related more to
the chiefs and men of the highest
rank and achievement. The family
pride of undistinguished but wellborn men was consoled in a measure
now by the compiled genealogical records, and the "Bard" and the "Genealogist" became almost synonymous
terms.
Individual responsibility, however,
was weakened, and there was no
counter advantage of increased public
information respecting the general
population. Local accounts of unimportant men, of good tribal status,
are numerous; other accounts are
doubtfully authentic, and not a few
accounts of interesting, or great, personages, are missing altogether. The
system, such as it became, lasted for
several centuries, but declined, irrecoverably, from about the reign of
Elizabeth, owing to a want of encouragement, due, probably, in the
main, to changed social conditions
occurring in Wales, as in the neighbouring sister nations. Nevertheless,
the Welsh Gorseddic Sessions, and
the Eisteddfod, are more than interesting survivals; they have an educative, mellowing influence on the
national life, through religious sentiment and patriotism, aided by music
and song, as well as by no small appreciation of literature and art.
On the other hand, as we see, for
instance, in the case of Scotland, a
comparatively small population tends
to lose its national distinctiveness
through the ceaseless, wearing assimilative influence of a far more populous, and equally progressive, adjoining nation. This is not a subject for
cavil, as the assimilation is a mutual
process, part of a world-movement,
in fact.
There was no representation in the
Commons-House from Cheshire or
Wales, till the Welsh incorporating
Acts of Henry VIII, whose reign began in 1509. One Henry Wynn,
member for the County of Merioneth,
in the last Parliament of James I,
writing to his father, 2nd April, 1624,
gives the following interesting account   of    Parliamentary   business:
"We sit very hard from seven in
"the morning until one in the after-
"noon, and, after, from two of the
"clock, in the afternoon, until seven,
"in—relation to Recusants, State of
"the Navy, motion against the Lord
"Treasurer concerning stamps, used
"by him in stamping his name, which
"are left with his men. These, some
"held he might lawfully use, but kept
"safely by him, as the keeper doth
"the Great Seal."
This debate, to me, except for the
"daylight," does not seem nearly three
centuries old, if we substitute, now,
the names of Carson, Beresford and
Lloyd George.
For the inevitable modern Irish
"Bull," or "Blunder," however, the
writer, Mr. Wynn, in his day, had to
quote a brother Welshman, so he
adds in the above letter to his father:
"I cannot choose but remember
"what was said by Sir Peter Mutton
in the House, Sir Edward Coke sit-
"ting in the chair. "That this time
"was not the first that stamps were
"used; for he had heard, before he
"was born, that stamps were used
"here, in this kingdom. At whioh the
"whole House laughed, which is not
"to be forgotten in haste. To whom,
"presently, Sir Edward Coke called,
"Sir Peter 'Stamp'."
It has been said, but I never examined the matter, that this incident
was the origin of the family name of
Captain Edward Stamp, a well known
colonist, at Alberni and Burrard's Inlet half a century ago.
What strikes me as somewhat singular, is, that among the numerous
colonial Welshmen here few seem to
recognise that Oliver Cromwell was
a Welshman, descended from Cado-
gan, the second son of the founder
of the 3rd Royal Tribe. The family
name was anciently Williams. Morgan Williams of Nantchurch, in Cardiganshire, married the sister of
Thomas Cromwell, the Minister of
the Earl of Essex, and was succeeded
by his son, Sir Richard Cromwell, of
Hinchingbroke in Huntingdonshire,
who first assumed the name of Cromwell. He was father to Sir Henry
Cromwell, the grandfather, by his
second son Robert, of Oliver the Pro
tector. Nothing is known of Oliver's
partialities to Wales, except that he
encouraged a small octavo of the
Welsh Bible, and promoted an Act for
the propagation of the Gospel in
North Wales. His military occasions
did not take him to Wales, but he
might have made a friendly visit, for,
in the old house at Kinmael, belonging to a valued officer of his, Colonel
Carter, is a room called "Cromwell's
parlour." Before his soldiering, Carter had been a draper, and, when he
married the heiress of Kinmael, a
Hollander lady, the wags said he had
chosen the best piece of "Holland" in
the country—as well he might.
Colonel Denison
Reprinted from The Toronto  Daily
News of Aug. 31, 1912.
In the nature of things, a young
country produces few celebrities. In
an intensely political age scarcely any
of such a country's men, outside of
politics, could hope to be known
abroad. Yet in Col. George T. Denison, who enters his seventy-fourth
year today, Canada possesses a remarkable and distinguished personality, whose name is known throughout
the British Empire and whose career
is identified with the triumph of ideas
which now dominate the British
world. When Lord Milner at the
banquet in Toronto a year or two
ago, declared that Joseph Chamberlain and George T. Denison were recognized as the chief protagonists of
Imperial unity, he in no wise exaggerated the value and importance of
the work done by the Canadian. It
required strong conviction, an unfailing optimism and energy far beyond
the average to challenge and combat
the views that held sway for so many
years.
Happily, Col. Denison possessed the
qualities needed. With strong faith
in Canada and her rightful place in
the Empire and a constructive mind
which, if devoted to politics, would
inevitably have given him a foremost
place in the national councils he began an agitation calculated in those
days to arouse every form of hostility. That his propaganda was ridiculous, that it embodied the spirit of
jingoism and would embroil us in
war, that it menaced both parties who
ought in consequence to crush it,
were the weapons successively employed against the advocates of Imperial unity. Col. Denison with unwavering patience, good humour, and
the crusader's readiness to fight when
fighting was necessary, met and overcame these and other forms of attack.
He led from the first a movement
which included men so able and conspicuous as McCarthy, Grant, Parkin
and Ross. The views once mocked
at are now generally accepted. He
has the satisfaction, which life brings
to men so seldom, of complete vindication. All those who came to scoff
have remained to pray. It seems also
a singularly just and appropriate link
dn the sequence of events, that a descended of the United Empire Loyalists should have been the man to
prove that their dreams were not visionary and their faith and sacrifices
not thrown away.
If Col. Denison sought reward for
his labours, which he has never done,
he has it in the respect and admiration of his fellow-countrymen. He
has it in those social joys which the
great poet tells us should accompany
age: "Honour, love, obedience,
troops of friends." We wish him
many happy returns of his birthday,
believing that the career of this courageous and honourable man sets a
good example to young Canadians.
THE SOUL-KISS
Oh I for one kiss that your lips have given
In the lost and beautiful past for me
I'd barter all my hopes of Heaven,
And all the bliss of Eternity.
But I know in the way that sins are reckoned
This thought is a sin of the deepest dye;
Yet I also know if an angel beckoned,
Standing close to the throne on High,
And you down by the gates Infernal
Should open your loving arms and smile
I'd turn my back on things supernal
To rest in your arms a little while.

CANADA AND THE PANAMA CANAL
(By Fred. W. Field)
Canada's Pacific Grain Ports
As we have seen, the prairie provinces look to the Panama Canal
I a stimulant to the Western shipment of their wheat and grain. The
lacific coast ports regard it as a stimulant to their standing as grain
|)rts. This question is having the attention of the Dominion authorises. Mr. Foster, t'he Minister of Trade and Commerce, it will be
imembered, recently asked the Vancouver Board of Trade to supply
Im with information as to the extent of exports of grain through
lancouver in the last few years and the countries to which cereals
lid been shipped; the prospects of these exports being increased, ancl
That there is to indicate that the grain for European markets will be
|verted to go through the Panama Canal,
The information which the special committee of the board of
lade secured is substantially as follows: That during the last three
prs there has been exported through the port of Vancouver, not-
jithstanding the fact that there are practically no facilities for handling
lain here, and the railway rates to this port are high, about 750,000
lishels of wheat and 500,000 bushels of oats. All of the grain was
Icked. The wheat went chiefly to Mexico, and the oats principally to
le Philippines, although there were minor shipments to China and
}pan.
Shipments Will Increase—The indications that these shipments
fill increase are numerous.   The completion of the Grand Trunk
acific, the Canadian Northern and the practically new main line of the
anadian Pacific Railway, double-tracked, with gradients equal to and
places better than those on the prairies, will give the same rail rates
estbound for the same distance as the present eastbound rates, work-
1 out to a reduction of from 25 per cent, to 33 per cent, of the rates
bw in force.   With the completion of the Panama Canal there will
po be a large decrease in the distance to Liverpool from Vancouver,
present water route being about 15,000 miles, while with the Canal
ben for traffic the distance will be brought down to less than 9,000
liles, which, with the added tonnage which will be regularly making
lancouver a port of call, in addition to the tramp tonnage available,
lill give a corresponding decrease in the water freights.
Eastern Outlets Cannot Handle—That the Eastern rail outlets are
Icapable of handling the grain is shown by last fall's experience, when

apl 20 S oct 26 THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1912
over 15,000,000 bushels of Canadian grain were despatched by way of
Duluth.
From the enquiries made by the board's committee they believe
that the future rail rates from points in Saskatchewan and Alberta
west of Moosejaw to Vancouver should approximate, fifteen cents a
hundred-weight, or nine cents a bushel, as compared with the twenty-
three cents a hundredweight, or fourteen cents a bushel, now in force.
Ocean rates from Vancouver to Liverpool via the Suez Canal or around
Cape Horn for the last three years have been twenty-five to thirty
shillings per long ton. With the shorter route to be provided by the
Panama Canal the rate ought not to be more than twenty shillings per
long ton, or thirteen cents per bushel, or a total charge against the grain
from the point of production on the prairie to the consumer in Great
Britain or the Continent, through the port of Vancouver of twenty-two
cents a bushel.
Rates on Grain—The present rates on grain from the prairie provinces by the lake and rail route via Fort William amount to from
twenty-five cents to twenty-six cents per bushel, and the all-rail or
winter route, which most of the grain has to take owing to the short
period of navigation on the Great Lakes after the harvest, has a rate
of thirty-six and thirty-seven cents. Storage charges during the winter
months on wheat amounts to five cents and more when kept waiting
shipment. If it was shipped through the port of Vancouver there
would be no storage charges practically, as the port is open the year
round, and there would be no cessation in the movement of freight
owing to the closing of navigation from ice.
In this connection, we may recall the evidence of an expert before
the United States House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce relative to the Canal, when he traced possible routes to be followed by vessels starting from Europe bound for the East. In some
cases he thought ships which had gone via the Suez Canal to Northern
China and Japan and which did not have good cargoes in sight for
return would go across to Vancouver and the northern ports of the
United States and take on cargo there, then returning via the Panama
Canal to Europe, or would stop on the eastern coast of the United
States and discharge cargo there, possibly taking on more.
From Canada via Vancouver—This led to inquiries from members
of committees" as to the lumber trade of the Pacific coast and the question of grain exports from Canada via Vancouver. The expert said
that at present the grain movement was not a growing one. He
thought that when the Grand Trunk Pacific had opened up the new
grain fields of the North-West the movement might expand considerably, and might be directed via the Canal, some of the grain going to
-Eastern ports of the United States or continuing to Europe. The
lumber movement would probably be largely increased and most of it
would go through the Canal.

The Doukhobour Commission
History of the Sect related to Mr. Commissioner
Blakemore at Nelson by Alex. M.
Evalenko   \
As thc Commission* continues .'its
wfrrk of probing into the question, o£
t'he Doukhobours jii; the, Province,.the'
casual reader of the press reports is
inclined to believe that, apart from
their infractions of the civil law, they
are much alike ordinary mortals in
respect to their usefulness to society.
Witness after witness has condemned
them as being undesirable, and" witness, after witness has arisen to say
that they are industrious, hard-working and moral. Some say that they
are guilty of petty thievery; others
state that they are 'honest. It is contended on the one hand that they are
depreciating the value of land, and
on thc other hand real estate men
have given it as their opinion that
their presence has exactly the opposite effect. Amidst such a conflicting
mass of evidence Mr. Commissioner
Blakemore has to arrive at the truth,
and in the meantime it is a pleasure
to come across such an interesting
feature of the enquiry as the subjoined statement, made by Mr. Alexander M. Evalenko, which is quoted
"in extenso" from the Nelson Daily
News of September 14th:—
.''The greater part of the morning
of the 13th was devoted to a rhetorical discourse by Alexander M. Evalenko who had for many years made
a close study of Russian sects who
hid dissented from the established
Greek church of the country. The
witness was not a Doukhobour nor
had 'he ever been. He was a naturalized American and had lived In New
York for 22 years. Not until a month
ago had he become acquainted with
Veregin ajul this was the first time
he had met the Doukhobours in Britisli Columbia..... .'  . . ■'■
"When lirsf asked by Mr. Blakemore to tell -the *.court, something of
his knowledge'of thc past history and
religious views of the sect, Mr. Eval-
eri^o said he might prepare a concise
statement, but the commissioner suggested that a prepared statement
would perhaps not serve the same pi'ir-
pij'se as any evidence he mijjiht be disposed to place before the court first
hand. Mr. Evalenko then proceeded
■ tO| review the history of the Doukhobour sect.
i      Reviews History of Sect
,''The beginning of Russian sectarianism was about 350 years ago when
religious separatists sprung into being, owing to thc persecutions of John
the Terrible. The persecution was
not the outcome of political differences but entirely due to religious reasons and were conducted by thc state
church which even went so far as to
execute anyone who refused to attend
church at morning mass. There were
two remarkable sects, the Doukhobours and the Mollicans. These two
sections wcre the most suffering communities. Despite the terrible. ■punishments inflicted they remained firm
in' their conscientious objections to
the church and the teachings of the
community had been handed clown
through the ages to thc present time.
A Tour of Russian Prisons
"When studying the problems closely in 1878 Mr. Evalenko made a tour
of t'he Russian prisons. There he
found many of the sect. One old man
was 82 years of age. Ile asked the
attorney general what harm a man of
that age could do. Why not let him
go? To *this the attorney replied,
"Q'h, I'm tired of him. Let him go
to,the devil.' They always maintained
a conscientious objection to and refused to accept military service. Their
position was'easy to''.understand.*' If
thfcy believed in' God'*they were put
in; prison for it. Imprisonment ...was
taken for granted.,. They would say:
'II we serve our* Cod we must expect'
to1 suffer.' This' was in t'he reign of
Alexander II., probably in 1878 about
a 'year before his assassination.
"Witness never was a revolutionist
ofl affiliated to tliat parly, but he was
in1 sympathy with t'he people. He
had a great respect for Alexander If.
because he tended toward liberalism
ahd.had freed the Russian peasants
from serfdom. The progress of public opinion in' England about 25 years
ago had done a tremendous amount
of good and had commenced to make
its force felt in Russia.
Sent to Die of Hunger
"Nicholas II. succeeded to sovereignty and started immediately to deal
with the separatists. His decision
was 'to send them to suoh a place
that they should die of hunger.' They
were consequently sent to Trans-
Caucasia, between t'he Black and Caspian seas, into the wilderness and after 30 or 40 years it was'transformed
into a paradise. The government
eventually realized that they could
not get them to consent to compulsory military service and a new movement started.
"Leo Tolstoi aud Prince D'Chill-
koff wrote many letters to the Czar
and other Russian nobility who expressed their sympathy, and aS an
outcome the government consented to
permit t'hem to emigrate to any other
country. This was at the beginning
of the reign of Nicholas II. about is
or 16 years ago. So it was just about
that time that the Doukhobours and
Mollicans were freed from prison and
exile.. By way of showing their impression of equality, Mr. Evalenko
mentioned that whenever they wrote
to the Czar.'or Czarina, t'hey addressed them as 'Dear Brother' or
'Sister.'
The Emigration
"The Mollicans emigrated to the
United States'and the Doukhobours
to Canada. Mr. Evalenko started to
communicate with the Doukhobours
about three or four years ago iii connection with scientific agriculture. He
had translated from the United States
official publications what he considered mudi valuable information but
he found .that the Doukhobours'
methods' were so excellent that he
did not think his books were much
good. Their great knowledge of agriculture iti practice left no room for
the theoretical suggestion's contained
in t'hese books. "•
"To give 'ian illustration of this he
referred to Mr. Veregin as an agriculturist. Mr. Evalenko had recently,
in company with Veregin, visited
Colorado and, with a government expert Who had been in the 'United
States service 40 years, went over
large tracts of land. Here and there
Veregin dug up the land and greatly
surprised the government expert by
stating exactly the quality of each
section of the soil inspected. The
official enquired, through Mr. Evalenko, if Veregin would work for the
United States government. They
would pay between $10,000 and $12,-
000 per annum for his services. Mr.
Evalenko replied that Veregin would
not give his services for $50,000 a
year as. his Ivere entirely devoted to
the welfare qf the Doukhobour 'community.
Doukhobour Religion
"Referring to the special tenets of
the Doukhobour religion Mr. Evalenko said they' have no creed other than
the teachings of Jesus Christ and
their objection to military service
arose out of that. The commandment
'Thou shalt not kill,' they understood
to mean not to take the life of anything. Mr. Evalenko had examined
them on their views of Christianity.
They say: 'If we eat meat wc have
to kill.' Eor that reason they do not
raise cattle because although they
would not kill their surplus stock-
would pass along to the slaughterer.
They have uo written books nor religious teachings.
Object to Going Into Debt
"Their present economical conditions, said'Mr. Evalenko, in the matter of -buildings in which they crowd
was due" to their'conscientious objection to getting into debt. As soon
as they had paid for their land out
of their products they would improve
t'heir social conditions and have
'luxuries.' In Saskatchewan their life
was better because they had to work
hard an'd establish better conditions
than exist here at present, and they
will soon overcome the hardships they
at present experience.
"In the matter of schools Mr. Evalenko had told them they were wrong.
The English people wanted them to
know the language and he had explained that they could not expect
them to learn Russian. It/was only
a matter of time and they would establish t'heir own schools and have
Doukhobours teaching English to the
rising generation.,. At present there
were several students studying at the
English universities.
"Mr. Evalenko also gave evidence
that he had impressed upon them the
absolute necessity of falling into line
in the matter of registration. This
being the nucleus of the present agitation, witness thought" it was the
hardest proposition. In Russia they
had the same system of registration
an'd thc government used it as a
means of tracing those eligible for
military service. Here they naturally
dreaded a repetition. This was the
deepest psychology of the Doukhobours' life. For centuries they had
suffered. Registration was their antipathy to government.
Have Been Granted Exemption
"Here Mr. Blakemore drew witness'
attention to the order in council of
t'he Dominion government, passed at
the time the Doukhobours first came
to Canada, granting exemption from
military service and inquired in face
of that how is it possible for them
to maintain the argument that their
objection to the registration laws is
based upon fear of military service?
"To answer this one would have
to bc a Doukhobour,' said Mr. Evalenko. That order changed the situation entirely. Personally lie had
told them the benefits of thc registration laws. Many conditions now existing willbe-'modilied in the near future as their economic conditions improve and they are bound to subsequently take a common sense view.
He had no doubt at all that they
would be brought to see the necessity and advantage of observing these
laws.
"In Russia the word 'government'
has a significant njeamng. The Doukhobours do not think there is such a
thing as perfect government. They
say if it was made up of kind-hearted people and their promises could be
depended upon, it would be a different
matter.'■. Here Mr. Evalenko cited the
bridge question at Brilliant. • Non-fulfillment of that promise to build the
bridge had further shattered their
faith in government promises.
" 'What action can any government
take in the matter of .their continued
defying of the laws?' asked Mr. Blakemore.
" 'I would say, keep off a little
while,' replied the witness.
" 'Did you ever know a case where
a government 'had suspended the enforcement of the law for the convenience of a community?'
Urges Special Conditions
"There are many ways of arriving
at a result. Some would say, "I will
compel them to obey." If we are.going to put it in that way it's no use
saying any more: My view, is'that we
should study the special conditions of
the case and adopt a different way of
thinking than that. When you have
studied them seriously, their historical life, their moral.character:and religious views, the problem assumes an
entirely different aspect. I realize it
is the most difficult phase of the
whole situation. It must be dealt with
with careful consideration."
"Mr. Evalenko thought that they
might be persuaded to appoint a representative to look after the registration of births, marriages and deaths
on behalf of their own people and
that representatives could make
occasional returns to the government.
"Counsel here pointed.out thattherc
were special modifications to suit the
religious views of the Quakers and it
was a matter within'the'authority .of
the provincial government.'',, V.
"Mr. Evalenko concluded: that they
could, he was certain, be treated in
such a way that they would be most'
willing eventually to comply with the
laws.
] Commissioner's Appreciation
"in my judgment the statement
made this morning by Mr. Evalenko
is simply invaluable to this commission aud to the community at large,
for its conciseness, for its knowledge

Iciples of other countries or even
trouble about their languages so long
as we are careful to preserve the continuity of our own; in more ways than
one the future of our cohesion as an
empire lies with our school masters.
Education has produced an emancipated woman whose bringing up has
rightly or wrongly opened up a gap
in the teaching of first principles in
matters of right and wrong which
must be filled up somehow, must the
teaching of these first principles now
form part of the school curriculum?
It may seem that in considering outlines of imperial safety a question like
this seems far fetched, but it really
only brings us to' the ropt of the
whole matter, but we must make sure
of our bed-rock at some time or another however far we have to dig
down to it.
That all-important spirit of inducement cannot be awakened at too early
an age and will form the most powerful factor in the discipline of the
man of the future, the further education takes us away from slavery the
more irksome will compulsion become
and therefore the more unpopular and
out of place will the raising of the
requisite military forces even for the
maintenance of good order within our
own boundaries become. The experienced school teacher who has the art
of developing that spirit of inducement whereby the pupil not only
learns to breathe the fresh air of
good manners, or of improved manners and better habits, as well as the
interests he may take in the 3 "Rs"
and the benefits he may derive from
his recreations, that same teacher un-
dtrstands the role of the successful of
the regimental command-er of th-e future.   That same school master quite
well understands where his chances
of success of his individual pupils lie,
and should he have studied the personal element to the extent that indi:
vidual requires, he will have come to
the conclusion that no instructor can
give individual attention to more than
15 pupils when opening up fresh
ground.
We will now consider 15 as a group
number.

HAVING AND HOLDING
the Editor of The Week;
Sir,—"What we  have  we'll  hold,"
Id Sir Hibbert Tupper last week to
|_  Imperial  Cadets.    Proud  words
esel    Can we make them good?
Phis week we have had the pleasure
J seeing a contingent of the 40th and
1st B. C. Horse, fine looking fellows,
Imirably horsed too, yet, although
psed  in   1908,  they  have   no   rifle
nge, no manoeuvreing ground.   Is
lis right?   What fine encouragement
them,—how   seriously   we   take
|_mi
Had though we Victorians are to
these fine fellows can we not raise
body of Horse on the Island?   Are
so undeveloped, unpatriotic (sure-
not this last) or simply so slack
cannot manage it?
|H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught
other day reviewed in Vancouver
Jso-callcd militia brigade, said bri-
Ide consisting of not quite 800 men,
less than a battalion of ten companies.
Is this the best that the boasted
100,000 citizens of Vancouver can do?
Sir, we British Columbians are simply playing with the problem of self-
defence, and I defy any man to prove
otherwise. If we value the treasures
we possess, our homes and families,
our liberties and laws, what are we
doing to make good the quotation at
the head of my letter?
We are part and parcel of an Empire, the existence of which is day
by day more closely menaced, yet who
in British Columbia calmly contemplates foreign rule, foreign laws, foreign taxes, and the general vae victis
which is the lot of the conquered?
It is then, for us either to follow the
example of those of our fellow
citizens who are doing their duty or
honestly admit that we do not consider our country worth fighting for.
Sir, I do not make my appeal to
men only; I appeal to our women;
those who have so often shamed men
into playing the man, in whose hearts
the love of Motherland is even more
strong. A truce to votes or no votes,
what good is it to paint a burning
house? Concentrate your energies on
the defence of our Province and the
part your husbands, brothers, sons
and lovers are playing in it. Inspire
them by your thoughts and words to
take up the burden their forefathers
so nobly bore; that we may all feel
that ours is no longer lip-loyalty, mere
flag-waving, but that we, in common
with our fellow citizens of Australasia and South Africa, are doing our
duty as citizens of the Empire.
We are not doing that duty now,
what is our excuse to those who are?
Sir, I must apologise if I trespass
too much on your space; I feel some
abler pen should take this matter up,
but it is one I feel most strongly on,
and the tone of your valuable paper
indicates that you are in sympathy
with my views.
I am, etc. •

To Our Patrons
In buying clothes, some things you can see for yourself—color,
style, fit and price; other things you can't see—quality of trimmings,
quality of tailoring. You buy mostly from what you see, and for the
rest of it you take somebody's word. Judge for yourself the things
you can see. "Fashion Craft" labelled in a garment is complete
security for you in the things you can't see.

The bride, who was given away by

white crepe de chine trimmed with old

and a white satin hat with osprey and
plume. Her bouquet was of white
roses and lilies of the valley. Her
travelling dress was of Scotch tweed

BORN
SANBURN—On September 25th, at "Shirlea,"
1648 Fell Street, the wife of Robert M.
Sanburn, a son.
Gossip from the Stalls
(Continued from Page 3)
commanded admiration, and with a
convincing fire, and an understanding
that showed the thinking artist in
every note.
"To speak of his astounding technic would be superfluous, if it
were not to make the picture of the
artist complete."
On the occasion of his epoch-making concert Rudolph Ganz was the recipient of no fewer than seven enthusiastic recalls, and all the critics combined in awarding him un.-tinting
praise for his rendition of Tschaikow-
sky's Concerto in B flat minor.
M. Ganz will be heard at the Victoria Theatre on Friday evening next
at 8.30.
The Woman
There is no particle of doubt that
David Belasco is today the most prolific and most successful producer of
dramatic plays in the world. He has
an unbroken record of twenty-five
years' success on the American stage.
Small wonder, then, that theatregoers
from ocean to ocean have lear.ied to
look upon his name in connection with
a play as a stamp of real merit ancl
artistry. In his latest and biggest success, "The Woman," Mr. Belasco has
added more than ever to his justly deserved great reputation, by revealing
a play of ideas, purpose and originality, clothed in such an absolutely natural manner as to elicit from press
and public the most eulogistic encomiums for the play, players and
production.
William C. deMille, who wrote
"The Woman," has given the stage
the most powerful play of national
politics and woman's loyalty of this
decade and with the assistance of Mr.
Belasco's genius, the biggest play of
its kind in the history of the American stage.
Professional politicians and grafters
at the national capital are exposed
without consideration for party or
leader. A woman's loyalty and devotion to her sex is revealed with an
authority that indicates the masterly
mind behind the idea, and for the first
time in recent stage history a human
husband is introduced by the playwright—a husband who, upon learning of his wife's past, does not scorn
and shun forever the woman whom
he has learned to trust and to love,
but a husband who declares, "Whatever comes of tonight I only know
one thing—that I must go on loving
you forever." Here the author has
struck a big and vital note, a note of
truth, loyalty and courage. It is such
sentiments as these voiced upon the
stage which are stronger elements in
the social and moral uplift than all
the pictures of depravity and suffering
shown as the wages of sin by the
stage scavengers of the degenerate
drama.
The company that will present it
here is the same that created such an
emphatic impression everywhere presented last season and includes such
well known players as Marjorie
Wood, Marion Barney, James Seeley,
Howell Hansel, Hallett Thompson,
Austin Webb, Homer Granville, Peter
Raymond, Hugh Dillman, Kalman and
others. At Victoria Theatre Monday, September 30th.

MISS M. WOOLDRIDGE, Proprietress        Opposite the Victoria Theatre
Victoria, B. C., Sept. 24th, 1912
To the men of Victoria and vicinity:
Our Hobberlin ''Made-to-Measure'' business has outgrown
our present quarters and we have opened an additional store
to enable us to handle it to better advantage.  This store is
situated in the new Bellevue Hotel Block, at 720 Yates St. ,
just above Douglas.  Over 500 suit and overcoat lengths are on
display which will enable you to judge how the garments will
appear when made up; a decided improvement over the old style
small sample.  The rapid growth of our business is proof that
the Hobberlin Service is the only service, giving more style,
better fits and better values.
Every garment is guaranteed to fit or your money refunded.
We have also started a ''Made-to-Measure'' shirt department and have obtained the services of an expert shirt cutter
who was with Hunter Bros., Toronto, for five years.
Our store is now open and you are invited to inspect
same whether you contemplate purchasing or not.

Experimental Farm System Re-Organized
Hon. Mr. Burrell Determined that the Farmers
Shall Receive Greater Benefit
One of the first problems which
Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, tackled when he took office
was the re-organization of the Dominion's system of experimental farms.
He found the farms were in many
cases run down, the barns were out
of repair, the farms were not up-to-
date, they were not proving of value
to the agriculturalist, they were not
in other words real experimental
farms, where farm problems could be
worked out and solved. Last winter
Mr. Burrell called a conference of
the superintendents of the farms
throughout the Dominion. They met
in Ottawa, discussed amongst themselves mutual problems and talked
over with the minister ways and
means of improving their work, so
that the results of their investigations
can be of permanent benefit to the
agricultural community.
Energetic Policy
Mr. Burrell's energetic policy is already bearing fruit. The barns and
properties of the Experimental Farms
all over the Dominion are being improved. The superintendents are taking a teener interest in their work
and t'hey are extending their activities. Efforts also are being made to
have t'he Experimental Farms of each
district deal more effectually with
local agricultural problems. For instance there has been for several
years a farm at Lacombe, Alta., of
very restricted size. Lacombe is in
the heart of what has been and
should be a fine cattle raising and
breeding country. The Lacombe
farm, however, on account of its
small area has been unable to experiment with stock problems. The government has bought a large addition
to the farm and in future the Lacombe farm will make cattle raising
one of its special features.
Selecting New Sites
J. F. Grisdale, superintendent of
Dominion Experimental Farms, is at
present on a trip of inspection
through the west. He will visit all
the government farms and spy out
the country for agricultural possibilities. Mr. Grisdale will visit Southern
Manitoba where a new farm is likely
to be located. The site will be selected with a view to experimenting
in apple and fruit culture on the
prairies. For some time on a small
scale apples of a remarkably good
flavor have been raised around Morden in Southern Manitoba. Strawberries, raspberries and other small
fruits it is known can be raised on
the prairies with proper culture. The
new farm will experiment in the development of hardy species of fruit
to withstand the rigours of the western climate.
Mr. Grisdale will also visit while
in the west the new town of Fort
George in Northern British Columbia
on the line of the G. T. P. He will
inspect the agricultural possibilities of
the country and it is possible that an
experimental farm may be established
in the district. Eastern Canada will
latter be visited by Mr. Grisdale. Already it is understood property has
been obtained for a new experimental
farm in New Brunswick and an announcement will be made shortly.
Sheep Raising is to be
Encouraged
During recent years the sheep industry has been steadily declining. In
some provinces sheep have almost
completely disappeared. Today Canadian farms are not only not producing sufficient for the home market,
but New Zealand mutton is actually
being shipped into Western Canada.
The following table shows how the
export trade in sheep and mutton has
declined. Only five years ago Canada exported sheep to the value of one
and one-quarter millions and last year
less than four hundred thousand dollars. Only $2,134 worth of mutton
was exported in 1911. Here is the
table:—

Sales of Pure Bred Stock
The encouragement of this decaying industry is one of the problems
which Hon. Martin Burrell, minister
of agriculture, has undertaken. He
secured the sympathy and active cooperation of the Dominion Sheep
Breeders' Association. A committee
from the association was appointed to
work with the officials of the department in investigating the problem
and in suggesting ways and means
of encouraging the industry. Two
members of the committee, Col. Mc-
Ewen, of Bryson, Ont., and Col, Mc-
Crae, of Guelph, the one president of
the Dominion association, the other
of the Ontario, were appointed to
make a thorough inquiry of the industry in British Columbia and the Maritime Provinces. Col. McEwen went
to British Columbia and Col. McCrae
to the Maritime Provinces. '
Report Received
Their report has recently been submitted to the committee and the department officials, and as a result it
has been decided to hold sales of
pure-bred rams and grade ewes at
various parts. The Maritime Province sales will take place the latter
part of September and the British
Columbia sales in October. Both investigators reported that the interest
the department is showing in the industry has awakened farmers to the
value and necessity* of paying more
attention to sheep raising. In British
Columbia it was reported there were

It is an "IDEAL" nest for "the best baby in the world."
You can lower the sides to make it a convenient annex to
mother's bed, when desired. Ends and sides are high
enough to prevent baby climbing out. Spindles are so close
together that baby's head cannot get between them. No
dangerous sharp comers or rough edges often found on
cribs less carefully made. Decorated panels on the ends lend
an inviting touch of color. Few cribs are so altogether attractive.
