The Naval Policy
' HE representative Legislative Assembly of the Dominion of
Canada declared on Thursday night in favour of a contribution to Imperial Naval Defence. Mr. Borden's resolutions
lere carried by a majority of thirty-three on a strict party vote.
Unless the Senate subserves its mission to the exigencies of party
Gfect will be given to these resolutions within a short time. On this
htter point The Week does not care to speculate. The effect of the
psolutions will be that Canada will place at the disposal of the
British Government the sum of $35,000,000 to build three Dread-
laughts in Britisli shipyards, and to place them in the hands of the
"British Admiralty to be used at whatever point they will best serve
lie interests of the Empire. They will remain under Admiralty
lontrol unless the Canadian Government shall subsequently recall
pern for incorporation in a Canadian navy. That is all that the
^solutions ensure. Needless to say it is the minimum, the absolute
hinimum, which could have been granted. And the granting of such
modicum has not been without six months of bitter party strife in
he House of Commons and the introduction for the first time in
Canadian history of the "closure." This is no time to comment on
lertain political aspects which have unfortunately accentuated the
lituation. Canadians of all parties will be anxious to forget as
Ipeedily as possible a development on whioh they can hardly dwell
jfithout a sense of shame. All eyes will now be turned to the future
Ind interest will centre on the unfolding of Mr. Borden's naval policy
all its fulness. Enough litis been gathered during the course of
lhe debate, and especially from Mr. Borden's remarks in his closing
Ipeech to be able to outline some of its most salient features. It will
Include dry docks for ordinary shipbuilding and naval purposes at
Esquimalt, Quebec and Halifax; Government aid to existing shipbuilding industries in Canada; special subsidies on all naval coh-
Itructon in Canada; tho ultimate construction of fleet units based on
lhe Atlantic and Pacific, nnd co-operation with Australia and New
pealand, under Admiralty control, on the Pacific. It may be taken
tor granted that an integral feature of Mr. Borden's naval policy
will be that any Canadian navy which may be constructed will at all
limes be subject to the control of the Admiralty, and that while in
limes of peace that control may admit of some latitude on the part
pf the Canadian Government, it will in time of war or threat of war
automatic and absolute. The passing of the Emergency Resolutions paves the way for an early declaration of the permanent policy.
tt is impossible to resist the conclusion that much time has been unnecessarily wasted in discussing the former, for even six months has
preatly advanced the public conception of the Empire's need and of
Canada's duty. A contribution of $35,000,000 looks much smaller
today than it did six months ago and we are already beginning to
Realize that we shall have to do something in the future which will
nake the Emergency contribution appear trivial. The satisfactory
feature of the case is that something definite has at last been done,
Ind that having committed herself to a principle, Canada must go
forward with a policy.
a Brilliant President
T O ONE who heard the address of Dr. Falconer, President of
Toronto University, at the Canadian Club, Victoria, will ever
forget it. Whilst it wns not tho first visit of the great educationalist to Victoria, it was the first time he had appeared here in a
lublic capacity. Surrounded by the leading men of the Province,
Including Sir Richard McBride, the Premier; Hon. Dr. Young, Minister of Education; the Right Rev. Bishop MacDonald; Hon. A. E.
McPhililps, President of the Council, and many other well-known
public men, he delivered an address which touched on every important phase of the subject of which he is such a master, and which at
lhe present moment is occupying such a prominent position in the
ninds of British Columbians in consequence of the interest aroused
Jiy the establishment of a Provincial University. It would bo a pleasing task to speak more fully of Dr. Falconer's personality, for he is a
lemarkable man. He looks as little like a professor as is possible; he
Is a strong, sturdy, well-set, robust man barely yet in the prime of life,
Ivith the appearance of one more accustomed to live and work in the
Ipen air than in the confinement of the class-room. With sucli phy-
lical vigour, Dr. Falconer could not but sympathize with the robuster
lursuits of his students.   He could not fail to be an all-round man
Uth wide sympathies and practical common-sense ideas. His blue
lyes betoken the thinker and dreamer; his lofty, dome-shaped head,
he reasoner and philosopher. His gentle, kindly, cheery manner con-
ley the humanness and charm of his nature.   The great feature of
|)r. Falconer's address was the high plane to which he lifted his subject. We have heard a great deal lately about the practical side of
Iducation, and its material aspects. The utility of our University
Is a means to an end, that end being the enabling of the students to
lecome first-class business men, the fitting of them to develop tho
lesources of the Province,has been perhaps rather unduly emphasized.
\t any rate the emphasis has been overdone if in any mind it has
Ibscured the far more important feature of mind training. Dr. Fal-
loner might have chosen his subject with special reference to this, for
Jvhile he was too discreet and too considerate to make the reference
loo direct, he did his best to show that the material aide of education
Ivas its inferior side. For instance, he said "many people estimate
Irogress in the terms of material development to be observed." This
lest he decried and pointed rather to the ascendency of the Greeks
lo whom education meant training the mind and developing the in-
lellectual powers of man. He said that the Greek spirit would never
disappear so long as people harboured the desire to know the origin of
mind and of intellectual conception. He showed how the material
gains of the recent centuries were all based upon scientific development, and that to estimate progress we must translate into ideas. He
thought little of the education whicii merely trained the student to
become proficient in such and such a thing; he said that what this
New World most wanted was men and women who had been trained
to think for themselves. AVho were able to say "you think this, and
you think that, but I think so and so," and to be able to give good
reasons. The address is a very tempting field for comment. It is
greatly to be regretted that it could not have been reported verbatim
and circulated far and wide. At any rate it. struck the right note, and
will find a response in the heart of every man and woman who thinks
more of training the mind than of adapting it.
Local Industries
EVERYONE sympathizes with the desire of the Board of
Trade to see a greater number of local industries established
in Victoria. The remarks recently made by Col. McRae were
very much to the point, and no doubt stimulated interest in the subject. Has it ever occurred to the builders of Victoria today that we
must have a certain number "of industries in order to support a permanent population ? It may be true that. Victoria is destined to be-
como chiefly a residential city. Natural beauty, geographical position,
climate and transportation facilities have determined that. It is also
destined to bo a great shipping port. It may never bo a great industrial city, but it must have a certain number of industries, industries
which will support an appreciable percentage of the population. Tliis
is necessary to give stability to our business and is indeed the backbone of commercial prosperity. The enormous expenditures contemplated in connection with the breakwater, docks, wharves and tor-
Sleeping and waking the proprietor of the Victoria Times "sees"
nothing else. He saw Mr. Price when Barnard first beat him by 4
votes, then by 484. Again, When Premier McBride headed the
"Big Four" at three Provincial elections with 1,000 majority, and
latterly when the registration of voters showed 8650 Conservatives
and 3,400 Liberals.

initials aro not conceived only for the purpose of dealing with the
traffic which the Panama Canal may bring along the Pacific (.'oast.
That must bo supplemented by local manufactories. Wc already
have a large number of these; more perhaps than most people imagine, and The Week could wish that one of the dailies would repeat
the experiment of the Colonist eight years ago, und make a census of
nil our industries, classifying them, showing the number of men employed, the amount of wages paid nnd the value of the product. Possibly tliis is the work of the Board of Trade; anyhow, it ought to lie
done, and would undoubtedly show a groat advance, llut tlie object of
this article is to call attention to a condition of affairs whicli bus
developed in Toronto, the greatest manufacturing city in Canada.
Everyone knows that the growth and enrichment of Toronto has been
mainly due to its manufacturing industries. Recently its largest industrial concern, that of the Massoy-IIarris Company, wished tn ox-
tend their plant, but found that tho price of land wns too high to
enable them to do so, and they have practically decided to erect their
new factory at Frampton, where land values nre much lower. The
Compnny points out thnt an excessive capital put into land for manufacturing Bites is just so much money wasted—thnt much money
tied up for nil time to come. They point out that tlie land does not
earn them a dollar, but thnt it does on the other hand form a considerable capital charge against their business. As a Toronto paper
commenting on this incident observes, "All we have to do is to got
our land values up high enough and end by making a living tnking
in each other's washing." This incident may carry no lesson for
Victoria; but then ngnin it mny.
Professor Jackson
PROFESSOR Geo. Jackson, of A'ictoria College, Toronto, is a
very able mnn nnd a distinguished scholar. He came from
Edinburgh a few yenrs ago to take up n position as Professor
of Theology, and there wns no ronson why hc should not have lieen
a tower of strength to his church and college. In Edinburgh he was
known as a zealous evangelist, preacher and missionary. Thousands
flocked to hear him, and his reputation stood high in the Methodist
Church to which ho belonged. Three years ago he fell foul of the
fathers of the Church in Canada and had a memorable tilt with Dr.
Carman, the venerable superintendent. Dr. Carman, in common
with other fathers of the Church, considered that Professor Jackson's views were too advanced and that he was not sufficiently orthodox on essential doctrines, notably that of the Divine Inspiration of
the Scriptures. They sought to dismiss him, but an able and ingenious
defence defeated their object. Owing, perhaps, to the somewhat harsh
manner in which the controversy was conducted by Dr. Carman, who
holds the strictest views and is inclined to be a martinet, public sympathy went out to Professor Jackson. It now begins to look as if
Dr. Carman was right, for at a recent farewell address in a Toronto
Church, Mr. Jackson commented upon the Old Testament in terms
which must have been very painful to his hearers, and which indeed
occasioned protest from members of the audience. He dismissed the
first eleven chapters of Genesis as something even less reliable than
a fable, and spoke of other portions of the Old Testament with a
flippancy which one might have tolerated in an atheist but would
never have expected from a minister of a Christian Church. This development is one whicii no one who knew Mr. Jackson in the Old
Country would have expected, and it may be taken for granted that
it will not escape the notice of the fathers of the Methodist Church
there. Indeed, it seems unlikely that one who has spoken of the
most sacred book with such an utter lack of reverence as to arouse
general condemnation in Canada can be permitted to assume a
position of authority in one of the home colleges.
Rainbow Abandonment
THE abandonment of the cruiser "Rainbow" and the dismissal
of the ship's complement ushers in the final stage of an ill-
starred venture. Nothing remains but for the "Rainbow"
either to be sold for scrapping or to be preserved ns n perpetual memorial of the folly of tlie Laurier naval policy. Either eventuality
must be a bitter contemplation for those good Liberals who have been
trying to persuade themselves that, Sir Wilfrid Laurier ever really
meant to make a substantial contribution to Imperial Naval Defence.'
The "Rainbow" and the "Niobo" have been the laughing-stock of the
country ever since they wcre purchased to form the nucleus of a
Canadian navy. They possessed no element of usefulness; they belonged to a class of craft which was practically obsolete; they could
not have been rendered effective against anything more formidable
than a piratical fishing launch or sloop, and they failed either to attract or to hold recruits, lt, would be almost unkind to take them as
a serious proposition. The Liberal press, or nt any rale a section of
it, is attempting to distort the situation to the extent of arguing that
the "Rainbow" is being abandoned by the Borden Goveninicn not because of its own ludicrous inutility, but because of n fundamental objection to a Canadian navy. No idea could be more over-strained or
far-fetched, and the contention will not deceive a schoolboy. The
"Rainbow" is being abandoned because it is no good; it was never
anything but a make-believe, and for the credit of Canada cannot be
too quickly put out of the way. Mr. Borden may not at the moment
be proposing to build a Canadian navy, although sooner or later that
will have to come; but he is showing a more considerate regard for
the misguided Government whicli foisted the "Rainbow" nnd the
"Niobe" on the country thnn the representatives of that Government seem able to exorcise for themselves, judging from their conduct
in the debate on the navnl resolutions.
Grinding An Axe
IT is quite obvious thnt Toronto ''Snturdny Night" lins nn nxe to
grind in the mntter of the Fort George townsite. It. hns for more
thnn n yenr persistently libelled Mr. George Hammond, the
President of the Natural Resources Security Co., who bus done
more thnn any mnn to attract the attention of the outside world to
Fort George nnd its vicinity. "Snturdny Night" backed up tlio ill-
advised attack made upon Jir. Hammond by one Daniell, the misguided editor of n local sheet, who after tho most indefensible conduct
wns finally exposed in tlio courts und forced to admit that his charges
against Mr. Hammond were groundless. One would think tbat when
Mr,.Hammond had thus cleared his nnme in the only way open to n
man of honour, "Saturday Night" would have had the fairness to
acknowledge ils error and abandon its policy. Instead of this, however, there has been no let up, and in the latest issue which has
reached tlie Const there is n most dishonest and unfair article, roasting Mr. Hammond nnd the Natural Resources Security Co., and as-
Hiring the public that the site of Fort George depot would be located
far away from Mr. Hammond's townsite, nnd that this inevitable conclusion of the matter involved the final puncturing of the "Hammond
Hubble," whatever that may menu. Unfortunately for "Snturdny
Night," its issue hnd not reached the Const before it was officially
settled by lhe. Rnilwny Commission thnt the nniiic of Fort George
should not lie altered lo Prince George, nnd that the depot should be
established on n site ndjnccnt to the Hammond townsite, nt n point
where the Natural Resources Co. hnd always maintained it would be
located. The obvious purpose of the article is to "knock" thc Hammond townsite, because it, says that "the plain truth of the matter is
thnt if he cannot get thnt, depot, moved to within n reasonable distance
of liis own group of townsite properties, the gnme is up for good nnd
nll." Probably "Snturdny Night" will not accept the converse,
which is thnt, hnving secured n favourable verdict from the Railway
Commission both ns to the title of the town and the site of tho depot, Page Two
Victoria, B.C., May 17, 1913
tlio future success of the Natural Resources Co. is assured, and the
good judgment of the investors in their townsite lots vindicated. The
absolute unfairness of the article is revealed in its closing sentences.
It states that "the appearance now is that the lots are scarcely worth
the cost of printing deeds for the same." This was before the deci-
son of the Railway Commission. Neither the Natural Resources Co.
nor the purchasers of the lots have any need to worry over their value
now. Mr. Hammond's far-sighted judgment is more than justified
hy the latest developments. He went into the Fort George district as
a large investor of liis own money, when there were not a score uf
white people living within a radius of hundreds of miles. He lias
interested thousands of people in a new country, n country of splendid resources and unexcelled transportation facilities. "Saturday
Night,'' has never dealt honestly either with Mr. Hammond or the
Fort George country. It has been a "knocker" from the beginning,
mid its statements have been so far frum the actual facts thnl il is
difficult to resist the conclusion that it had an axe to grind.
Inner Harbour Railway
THERE will bc nothing but jubilation at the announcement
that the promoters of the Inner Harbour Railway have abandoned tlieir ill-starred project. It should never have been
bruited. Mr. Justice Martin sounded the note of public opinion in
his letter to The Colonist when it was first suggested. Whatever else
Victoria could afford, she could not afford to place a blot on the fair
picture presented by the eity as approached from the Inner Harbour;
and although many specious promises were made, no one believed it
possible to construct a railway round James' Bay Causeway which
would not he an eyesore. For a time it looked as if the spirit of
materialism would be victor, but the many objections raised, the difficulty of securing unanimity of opinion among owners of waterfrontage, and finally the energy with which tho scheme for a bridge
from the Songhees Reserve to Laurel Point was pushed, left the promoters of the Inner Harbour Railway without a leg to stand on. The
city is to be congratulated on a successful issue to a fight which has
been more stubborn than most people know of. The decision of the
Government to return the $15,000 had not a little weight in determining the final abandonment of the project. Everybody ought to
be satisfied now. The promoters get their deposit back and the city
is rid of the nightmare of a hideous railway obscuring the most
artistic features of its unrivalled waterfront.
A Word of Warning
ACCORDING to Clause 31 of the Provincial Act Regulating
the Use and Operation of Motor Vehicles "no motor may pass
or attempt to pass at a greater rate of speed than four miles
an hour a street car which is stationary for the purpose of taking on
or discharging passengers." The same clause also provides that
"every driver of a motor going in the same direction as and overtaking a street car which has stopped, or is about to stop for the pur
pose of discharging or taking on passengers, shall when such car
stops also stop such motor at a distance of at least ten feet from said
ear, and shall keep such motor at a distance of at least ten feet from
said car, and shall keep such motor at a stand-still until the said car
has been again set in motion and all passengers who have alighted
shall have reached the side of the highway or otherwise gotten safely
clear of said motor." The latter part of this clause is being fairly
well observed, and it is now a rare occurrence to see a motor pushing
its wny between passengers who are alighting from or approaching
a car. But the former part of the clause, which is of much wider
scope, is flagrantly disregarded. It applies to motors travelling in
the opposite direction from that in whicli a stationary car is headed,
and the danger is to passengers who have alighted and may he passing round the tail end of the car to reach the sidewalk on the opposite
side of the road. Too many motorists, and ns a rule they are not professional chauffeurs, ignore this provision and continue to travel at
thc ordinary rate, whereby there have recently been a number of
narrow escapes whicli have been brought to the knowledge of The
Week. Tliere is really more danger on the off-side than the on-side
of a car, because the tramcar itself obscures the line of vision and
passengers are not aware tliat a motor is coining until it is almost on
the top of them. Of course, common sense and ordinary care are
required on the part of the pedestrian as well as the motorist, but the
former furnishes no security unless the latter observes the very reasonable provisions of the Act.
Quarantine Station
THE prompt action of the Dominion Government renders it
almost unnecessary for the Board of Trade to carry out their
intention of making an examination of the Quarantine
Station for the purpose of recommending necessary additions. The
appropriation of so large a sum of $100,000 shows how thoroughly
awake the Department is to the needs of the situation, and probably
the better course to adopt now would he to urge Mr. Burrell to have
plans and speeilications prepared at the earliest possible date and
allow the Board of Trade to pass upon them before they are finally
accepted. The plans would have to be prepared by an architectural expert familiar with the designing of Quarantine Stations, and
the Conimitce of the Board of Trade could not possibly cover the
ground unless it called in an expert with whom to advise. Things
are going so well in this important matter that it would appear to
he Ibe part of wisdom to let well enough alone. What with a iarge
appropriation, and Ibe appointment of a competent Commissioner,
it would seem as if the Government had fully met the requirements
of thc case, and too much voluntary assistance would bo more likely
to hinder than to aid.
Maternity Hospital
THE Colonist is justified in stating that a grave state of affairs
was disclosed at tho recent session of the Local Council of
Women in connection with the Maternity Ward of thc Jubilee
Hospital. Jliss Lawson brought before the notice of the Council the
distressing fact Ihat Ihore was no free maternity ward where a woman
without n home of her own or one coining from a distance could be
placed. So far the Friendly Help Society bad found, not without;
difficulty, accommodation for those under their care, but no one could
tell when au emergency might arise when this could not be done. It
was pointed out that tho Jubilee Hospital directors had in hand tho
sum of $10,000 collected for a Maternity Ward, but they claimed that
the fund could not bo touched till the new hospital was built. Surely
some way may lie found out of Ibis difficulty. No enscs are more distressing, or present greater difficulties, than those which on an emer
gency require the use of a maternity ward. It is intolerable that in a
civilized community there should be a lack of accommodation for such
cases. They have the first claim on the tenderest sympathies of the
public, and the fact that the requisite amount was so generously and
ungrudgingly provided is the best evidence that the need is felt and
recognized. It is to be hoped that the Hospital directors will he able
to satisfy the sub-committee which has been appointed to look into the
matter. If the $10,000 subscribed fur the ward is not immediately
available, it ought to he possible to make some temporary arrangement of an adequate character.
Archdeacon Scriven
THE WEEK has the greatest possible pleasure in giving publicity to n circular received from the Very Rev. Dean Doull
calling attention tu the prolonged absence of Archdeacon
Scriven on account of ill health and bis impending return to Victoria.
Tliere is no more popular cleric in the diocese, for Archdeacon
Scriven has spent the best part, of his life here and has endeared
himself not only to the members of his own Church, but tu hundreds
who belong to other denominations. Any recognition uf his faithful
service will not be confined to the Anglican Church, and the opportunity afforded to others to signify their affection for a broad-minded,
kind-hearted, Christian gentleman will bc taken advantage of. It
is intended shortly after the Archdeacon's return to hold a public reception in the city, at, which he will he presented with a purse of gold
and* an illuminated address of welcome and appreciation. Those who
have not already contributed tu the fund being raised for this purpose should communicate at once with the treasurer of the Synod.
Percy Wollaston, Esq., c|o Messrs. Wilson Bros., Herald Street, Victoria, B.C. Mr. Wollaston has kindly consented to act as treasurer of
the fund.
fl New Building Society
THE attention of readers of The Week is directed to thc
Victoria Mutual Loan and Building Society, Ltd., which has
just commenced business in the Central Building. It is a
local company, with an authorized capital of $25,000. The president
is Mr. A. G. Sargison, and the directors include Messrs. R. W.
Douglas, Charles Forsythe, CA.; AV. E. L. Pilkington, and T.
Edward Clark. The latter gentleman is also secretary. The local
firm of Bass & Bullock-Webster act as solicitors. Mr. Clark has had
many years experience in the conduct of similar businesses in
London. The rules and regulations of the Society are drafted on
the best English practice; the fees are moderate, and the members are
adequately protected. The directorate is well and favourably known,
and will inspire confidence in investors. Tliere is no reason why this
society should not prove as profitable as it will undoubtedly be beneficial.
Employment Agencies
THE Dominion Government has by an Order in Council taken
a very important step in the direction of checking what has
become a public scandal, viz, the unscrupulous conduct of
employment agents in dealing with immigrants seeking work. A
number of irresponsible persons have opened offices in Canada where
hundreds, if not thousands, of immigrants have been steered by
"touts" on the other side of the Line. The sole object of "tout" nnd
agent has been to secure a capitation fee on the pretext of procuring
work for the immigrant. Too often he was in no posiiton to implement the undertaking, and our cities have been flooded with labourers
who through no fault of their own have found themselves stranded
in a foreign country and have not infrequently accentuated local
labour difficulties and led to the unemployment of many of our own
men. Hereafter no person, firm or company may engage in the
business of an intelligence office, an employment or a labour agency
having dealings with immigrants without having first obtained a
license. The license will be for a year and will not be transferable,
but will be revocable if its conditions are violated. Provision is mado
for punishment in case of false representations, and holders of the
license are compelled to keep books showing every detail of their business. The provisions are wise and practical and will commend themselves to every member of the community.

Luld seem that certain parlies have
ion afflicted with the same keen
lisiness spirit right here in Victoria,
■hnve no desire to mention names or
luces—ns yet. I will confine myself
].* fncls. In a cerlnin pnrt of onr City
P Benutiful Homes there wns recently
a lnrge quantity of manure to be disposed of. Manure is n valuable commodity or an unsavoury mass of filth,
according to the point of view. The
1.1 ners evidently regarded il ns Ihe
hitter. Instead of selling it in small
quantities for gardening purposes,
lhey loaded it on carts, on thirty
carls, and dumped it on a small building lot, which wns carefully selected
in (lie midst of other lots actually being built on. Then lhey sent a man
with a plough, and he, acting on instructions, ploughed this valuable
commodity, or mass of tilth, into the
ground. At lenst, he ploughed as
much of it into the ground os wns
possible, but you must remember that
thirty cart loads of manure is one
thing, and a small building* lot is allot her. ll is now possible for the disinterested citizen lo eontemplnte the
possibilities of a fly-swatting campaign in the immediate neighbourhood
of tliat smal] building lot, Personally, I am Inking no bets against an
epidemic iu Hint vicinity.
Some time ago it play enmo to Victorin called "The Commuters." It
dealt with the inconveniences of suh-
urbnii life when the residents are dependent for transportation ou the
railway alone. Its appearance conjured up nll Hint one had vend nml
heard nbout the horrors of hnving to
leave Hie house in the morning before lhe coffee was cool enough lo
swallow, and of hnving to leave the
theatre al night before the curtain
hnd risen on the lasl acl. I sometimes think that there is a large suction of theatre-goers in Victoria who
have boon commuters nt ono period or
oilier of their lives nnd who have boon
so infected by the virus of coramutn-
lion that they are unable to throw off
llic resultant effects. There is really
nr* reason whatever for anyone leaving the Victoria Thentre before the
full of the lnst curtain. But will the
people stny for il 1 Nol lhey. Last
Friday the closing* scene of "The Perplexed Husband" wns spoilt for mnny
by llie insane not ion of numbers of
the audience, who started making
rendy for departure ns soon ns the
denouement wns obvious. Such people
c.uglil nol to be nllowed to visit places
of public entertainment. I enn fool
sorry for anyone who is obliged lo
leave n good play before its conclusion. I can only detest llie man or
ivomaii, in this case mostly woman,
A' )n> deliberately stirs up confusion
iiround her, so that she may be one of
tlio llrsl lo get out of lho thentre and
have a belter seat in a onr. Nowadays theatre cars nre not crowded,
automobiles seo to that. We have
merely lhe crass, selfish thoughtlessness of n lot of unmannerly boors to
thank for a great deal of annoyance
in this respect.
Half the pleasure ill life lies in
shop windows. Thai is whnt I feel
nowadays, though I well remember
Hint at one lime in my life T used to
linto dawdling along with the Olympians who persisted in looking into
windows instend of walking nt n decent pace. Of course, different people like different kinds of windows. I
myself find nn irresistible attraction
in a first-clnss butcher's shop. T love
I. see grent rounds of hoof reposing
oi* marble slabs. I Ihink of the "good
old days" when n bnron of beef and
nut-brown ale formed every man's
breakfast. I like to see carcases
bunging up in delicate profusion with
their tails decorated with crinkly
paper, nud I like nbove all things the
air of scrupulous elennliness whicii
pervades the modern butcher's shop in
n big cily. On Johnson Slreet recently I hnve found my idenl. The
Vancouver-Prince Rupert Ment Compnny hnve opened a veritable pnlnce
of butchery. It is n treat to stand
outside looking in (how different from
hanging inside looking out!); to fensl
one's eyes on the ment, not in hunger
hut in an epicurean appreciation of
Hie hygienic conditions which prevail.
Tuily, T do like butchers' shops, and
I can spend quite a profitable five minutes taking in all the up-to-date contrivances in this particular one. Johnson Street will nne day hc Hie principal slreet iii Victoria, and il will be
well if all the stores which will lino
it nre up lo thc standard nll (lined by
tlio Vnnconvcr-Prinee Rupert Meal
Company. In the meantime it is conspicuous by contrast. That there is n
moral in everything, even in n hut-
IT is a hnd practice to "race" a
easoline motor—in other words, to
allow it to run nt ils maximum speed
when 1 lie car is not in motion, since
doing Ibis puts unusual strains on
many pnrts of the engine, particularly
the reciprocating portions, and tends
to wear Ihem out prematurely. The
si ruin ou the connecting rods nnd
valve mechanism, for instance, increases very rapidly with lhe speed.
The shocks or hammering borne by
the pnrts is very much greater nt high
speed than al normal rate, and mny
resull in the crystallization of the
parts and tlieir eventual breakage.
The Tefemce nt the Marconi !5n-
mili-y to Cnesars wife reminds us of
the story of the provincial mayor who
upon his election, promised his supporters to he "like Caesar's wife, all things
to all men."

The increase of $41,000,000 in the value of imports includes
increases of approximately $25,250,000 in raw materials and articles
mainly unmanufactured, and $10,000,000 in articles wholly or mainly manufactured. About $20,000,000 of the increase of $42,000,000
in exports of United Kingdom produce and manufactures is accounted for by "articles wholly or mainly manufactured," but tliere was
also a large increase in the value of exported conl, due pnrtly to the
fact that the coal strike was in operation in March, 101.2.
Thc foregoing statement relates to merchandise only. The total
values of gold and silver bullion and specie imported and exported
during the three months were us follows: Imports, $77,000,000;
exports, $72,300,000.
The values of the imports from Canada and of the exports ami
re-exports to the Dominion during the first quarter of each of the

an increase in 1013 under each of the three heads.
Among the principal articles were the following:
Imports from Canada in 1013: Wheat, $0,240,000; wheat meal

Night" was singed ul Vicloni

aging wns lhe principal thing in Hie
low. The play is rather more iunne
inn llie average piece of ils class;
e funny man is rather less funny,
id llie music nol quite so musical,
ut llic singing wns excellent. The
'cond scene in Lunitania wns chiirin-
g, nnd lhe banquet scene wns fully
i good. When this hns been said,
iwever, there is nothing more lo say.
ROSE STAHL appeared at the Victoria Thentre on Tuesday night
in Charles Klein's latest play, "Maggie Pepper." Quite a number of
superlatives have been used recently
iu writing up lhe performances nl Ihis
theatre. The list was pretty nearly
exhausted on the John Drew Compuny, and especially ou ils superb
hading lady, Mary Boland. But it is
no mere flattery to say that Rose
Stahl deserves as much credit for her
performance in "Maggie Pepper"
as any performer who has been seen
in Victoria tliis season. She may
lack lhe versatility and force of other
stars, but she has cultivated a certain
clnss of delineation until she has far
outdistanced all her rivals. In such
parts ns lhe one under discussion, us
well as in the "Chorus Lady," she is
unapproached and her performance on
Tuesday night was a delight from beginning lo end. I am not sure thai I
did not like it belter Hum "The
Chorus Lndy." There seemed to be
a little added finish; the finesse was
more delicate and the emotion more
natural. While the author deserves
credit for assembling an inimitable
line of goods in the slang patter
which he has provided for Rose Stahl,
the actress at least divides the honours by lhe perfect mastery she has
acquired and lhe absolute naturalness
and ease wilh whicii Hie lingo of the
half-educated but bright-witted shopgirl falls from her lips. Charles Klein
is not a great dramatist, and 1 agree
wilh those critics who claim Ihal his
incidents are not true to life. They
rather burlesque bolli lhe happenings
and lhe characters, hut there is a certain grip about Ihem which furnishes
excellent entertainment, and "Maggie
Pepper" is no exception.
The supporting company wns excellent, and it would have been impossible to improve upon the performance of* John S. Robertson ns "Joe
Holbrook." Percival T. Moore as
"Jnnies Parkin," Adele Adams ns
"Ado Darkin," and Waller Craven
as "John Hargeti." Indeed, excellent
as was the John Drew Company, I do
nol think I have seen a belter balanced aggregation this season than
Ihat supporting Miss Stahl.
VAUDEVILLE is middling to
good Ihis week nt the Empress.
There is an amusing opening turn by
a blnck-fnce comedian, his partner
and a mule. I fancy that I have seen
Ihis turn here once before, and it is
clever. When all is said nud done,
however, honours go lo lhe mule.
"Broomstick" Elliott is a comic fellow who plnys a single string, and
gels a lot of fun out of it, while Vincent & Lome are average singing entertainers and jokers, The Melody
Monarchs improve ns they go on, nnd
if lhey would stnrt at the end and go
on further, leaving out lhe beginning,
lhey would have lhe house splitting ils
sides, instend of only straining them.
Hal Stephens is Hie big net this week.
Representing four characters, Shy-
luck, Pickwick, Rip Van Winkle nnd
.Indus Iscariot, he appears with suitable scenery for a few minutes in each
ride, and does il well. 1 never remember seeing such elaborate slage selling nl the Empress before, mid 1

NEXT week the old favourite "In
Old Kentucky" will hold Ihe
slage at the Princess Theatre, and
there is no doubt Hint it will meet
with grent success, fol* though almost
every one has seen il, tliere is n fascination about the story nnd play that
never seems to wear out. All the familiar characters will be presented.
".Mndge Brinvly" will be played by
Miss Pnge, who has undertaken the
part with one of! the road shows, nud
in which she.won grent praise. Dave
Williams will be welcomed in "Cul.
Doolittle," and his many friends wil]
not be dissntislied with his characterization of a part Ihal he plays exceedingly well. Byron Alden has a
chance to display good acting in the
mountain lover; Aunt Alethen is particularly suited to Miss Rice, and the
remainder of the cnmpany are well
cost. This week the company's presentation of "Beverly of Grauslurk"
deserves unstinted praise, the singe
effects nnd costumes being truly bountiful, while splendid work is being
done by Miss Pnge, Miss Merriott,
Jliss Rice, Mr. Howland, Mr. Belasco,
etc. Tn fnct, nil of the eompany are

finished production enn be put on nl
the exceedingly small price of admission. The Williams Company certainly deserve the good houses which
lhey constantly draw.
MAY 8th was the occasion of a
very enjoyable entertainment in
the form of a cafe chiintniit given at
the Alexandra Club by local nrlistes.

Hie evening, nud Inter this tnleiilcd
lndy gnve wilh Jliss Kythe Boulton
the "Moonstruck" dance, both the executants coming in for n full shnre of
npplnuse. Miss Muriel Hnll rendered "Arcndy" in excellent style, and
Miss Cossenline sang of "Hullo, Too-
Too." The humorous selections given
by Messrs. Melville Smyth and Sprnlt,
lhe llrsl "The Upper Ten nnd the
Lower Five," and (lie second a burlesqued version of "Tbe Keys of
Heaven," were also much enjoyed.
Mr. Sanger, who hus nn excellent
tenor voice, snug several numbers, in-
eluding "The Yeomen's Wedding
Song." A shorl play was also given,
n which a good deal of dramatic talent was displayed, the ensl being composed of Mrs. Granville Cuppage,
Miss Cosentinc, Jliss Colvin, Jliss Oe-
Invia Robinson. Jliss Dorothy King.
Jliss Kythe Boulton, Jliss Violet
Goodwin, Miss Sutton, nnd Messrs.
J. Burrell- Leonard and Bunnell. Refreshments were served throughout
lhe evening, and nl 10:1)0 lhe tnbles
were moved and Hie evening concluded
wilh au enjoyable lillie dance.
FEW people realize bow very
much Victoria owes lo lhe
Daughters ol! lhe Empire, who are always to the fore when there is work
lo he done, bul who are always iu
lhe background when there are thanks
lo be given. Jlosl of us nre inclined
lo Ihink Unit these ladies merely nel

really knew what actual linrd work
is entailed iu llie frequent entertainments for whieli llie organization is
famed, we should appreciate, if possible, Iheir efforts even more highly
than we now do.
On May 22, 211 and on lhe evening

English Fair will be held al the Skul-
iug Arena under lhe auspices of Ihis
body which has never yet known lhe

known ns "Pepper's Ghosts," and
was staged daily nt what was then
one ot llie besl known rendezvous in
the cily. tlie Royal Polytechnic. I_ike
most things wliieh we sec iu our
youthful days, il left a vivid impression, especially as it hud certain weird
aspects which appealed to one's imagination, and at times to one's fears.
The entertainment consisted of a
series ol: tableaux, into which one or
more ghost-like figures were introduced amongst renl men and women.
The curtains aud lights were so
arranged that it was impossible lo
tell the ghost from llie living ligttre,
lhe corporeality of the latter being
subdued by the dexterous use of certain stage appliances.
I remember that one of the most
siu'cessl'itl series of tableaux dealt
wilh the whole story of Dickens'
"Christmas Carol." and in later years
the same appliances were used lo illustrate a reading of that incomparable story.
The entertainment at the Polytechnic closed, as such entertainments
usually do. with some comic scenes,
into whieh incorporeal bodies were
projected lo Ihe greal mystification of
the audience, because the living figures could walk through them, or pass
si sword or a slick through them, de-

tainer would step lo the front of the
stage, thank the audience for their

most mystifying performance of all,

gentlemen, I am here," Ihen stepping
hack only a h\v feet, we could hear

"and now I am not here." and he was

After Professor's Pepper's death
Ihe entertainment travelled through
F.ngland for many years under the
title of Poole's Myriorama, a 1 ille
which gave the show away lo some
extent, suggesting the use of mirrors
lo produce reflections, and so deceive
the audience. Hut I have not heard
of this for some years nud fancy it
lias fallen into lhe limbo of ahnosi
forgotten enlerlainmenls.
II is nol difficult to explain why
this shotilil be so. The advent of illns-
kelyn & Cook, and the later accession of Jlevant lo Ihe school of public conjurors and entertainers has
brought about a development of whatever may have been Professor Pepper's original system, for constant
use iu connection with their tricks.
Kellar. in particular, made effective
use of the secret ill his beheading
trick, and now, unless I am greatly
mistaken, the invention of our old
friend, Professor Pepper, whicii survived for nearly half a century, and
Ihen died away, is blossoming out
under another name as the Kinoplastikon.

transparency when the figures appear ou the stage or go off, lhey might
be considered human beings. They
enter from lhe wings in full light,
and after lhe performance, when llic

Rumour has it that Hie author had
been reading Stevenson's ''Treasure
Islnnd," un.1 nnt being greatly struck,
remarked that he could write a better adventure-book himself,—which
he did, having the MS. ready in
seven weeks. But the rumour is perhaps apoccryphal. Mr. Haggard had
already written "The Wilch's
Head," "Dawn," and "Cetewayo
and His White Neighbors," and
would probably have produced pretty
much the same sort of book whether
he had read "Treasure Islaud" or
After "King Solomon's Mines,"

Ayesha, mixed up again with our
tdd friends Sir Henry Curtis, Allan
Quatermain, nnd Mr. Good; "Jess,"
"Maiwn's Revenge," "Cleopatra,"
"Nada the Lily," and many more,
too numerous to mention; nil of
them excellently written, full of
swing and thrill and mystery, nnd
yet never unhealthy. It is a surprising Ihing that a man of such
mild and modest temperament, and
of such peaceable and indeed agricultural pursuits—for Sir Rider's hobby
is practical fanning—should he able
lo write such breathless thrillers. His
early history, however, is a partial
explanation of the puzzle. Born iu
1856, aud educated at Ipswich, he
became secretary I,   Sir Henry Bul
wer, Governor of Natal, in LS7.r>;
was 011 the staff of Sir Theophilus
Shepstone (special commissioner tu
the Transvaal) in 1877; nnd, with
Colonel Brooke, formally hoisted the
British Hag at Pretoria in 1S77.
Later, he became Master of the High
Court of lhe Transvaal. All these
experiences gnve him an inliinale acquaintance wilh Zulu nnd Boer history, nnd no doubt many of llic wild
adventures of Quatermain and his
friends are based on actual facts.
Those early South African days were
stormy times, indeed.
Sir Rider—who, by lhe way, wns
knighted over a year ago—has since
done much useful work. In 1901 and
1902 he journeyed through England,
investigating the condition of agriculture and of the rural population;
in 1905 he wns Britisli Government
Commissioner to report on the Salvation Army Settlements in U.S.A.,
and he has since published an excellent book on Salvation Army work in
England. He has also served as Royal
Commissioner to investigate coast,
erosion and afforestation. He lives in

A MARINE alarm bell thnt will

H. T. Barnes, of McGill University.
Ile has found during his experiments
that water is slightly cooler near
shore than out at sea, and eventually
he may prove Ihe thermometer to bo
sufficiently reliable for practical use.
' On the ship Montcalm he studied
wuler temperatures last summer.
Along the Cnnndinu coast and in the
SI rails of Belle Isle he found that Ihe
near-shore water is cooler by a few
degrees or fractions of a degree, than
llic wnter farther out. The explanation for this is simple enough. Deep
water is cooler than surface wnter,
and the dashing of the sea along the
coast or on shoals brings up enough
deep water lo cool slightly the surface
water at sueh points. Investigations
011 the const of Great Britain have
given similar results, but Professor
Burnes desires to extend his experiments still further before advising the
adoption of thermometer alarms. Once
the principle is established the application will be simple, for a thermo-
nieler carried by n ship in the water
at the bow can easily be connected up
wilh a dial nr alarm in Hie pilothouse.
His method of warning ships
against ice-bergs has been a practical
success. It is based on the strange
fuel that ns a ship approaches un iceberg il will find the surface water
growing warmer instend of colder. The
melting iceberg sinks the cold water
and sels up a surface current toward
itself, and this surface water gets a
chance to become a little warmer because its surface flow is unmixed with
llic colder water below.

To the Editor of The Week.
Sir; In your issue of April 26th, I
read with regret the announcement
Hint Mr. Phillipps-Wolley has resigned
charge of the Esquimalt Branch of
the Navy League, but your exquisite
paragraph commenting thereon has delighted all Mr. Wolley's friends and

for the pleasant wuy it referred lo

of waiting lill a mnn is dead to let

something that would please him
most, and I hnve ventured, in a private leiter lo lhe Editor, lo outline
whnt in my modest opinion would bc

Cnpt. Phillipps-Wolley has many

The writer does not share the political  views of the retiring President,
neither does he believe with him Hint
there is any menace in the North Sen.
As a third parly man, holding extreme
views nnd believing Hint party government simply means the Ins and

HE English courts have hold that an automobile is no longer
a luxury, but a necessity; u conclusion with whicli most
[icojile who live in Victoria will agree. Nothing is more sur-
lii'ising than lhe increase in the number of automobiles in the streets,
linl the way in which licensed numbers continue to mount up steadily,
fince the writer of this article was fortunate enough, less than six
locks ago, to acquire a magic license numbered 5603, more than three
lundred licenses have been issued. Not the least gratifying feature
If this steady growth is that people in all walks of life are able to
llniro alike in what is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable and
leiillh-giving recreations of the age.
And just because the automobile is becoming so indispensable it
all the more necessary that the regulations governing its use shall
judiciously compiled and strictly enforced.     Victoria shows a
arked improvement in this respect.   Keckless chauffeurs have been
Jlniiisi eliminated, and a strict enforcement of   the  rules  by  the
ImliiT has prevented the streets of the Cnpital City from witnessing
terrible scenes which have characterized automobile traffic in
Vancouver recently.
It is only by a mutual forbearance that the streets can bc kept

average, but some curs that arc difficult fo move bring as low us 40 per

"Often a deal is made in which a

the denier allows outright, that figure

"will meet with ready sale, because
the public already knows tlie cnr, and
trusts lhe compauy buck of it." He
"Thus is one great item of expense

see furl her vigorous campaigning on lhe part of those who are interested in the building of n national
trans-continental highway extending
from Halifax to Vancouver. . Jir. T.
W. Wilby, who lust year drove u cur
over the route to bc followed by Ihe
road, has announced bis intention of
again making Hie trip. The purpose
of the tour last year was mainly to
prove there were no insurmountable
difficulties in the way of the building
of this road. The lour also did much
to direct public at lent ion to the
scheme, and in this latter connection
it was eminently successful.
With tbe exception of n strip of
country at the head of Ibe (Ireut
Lukes and a short run through one
pnrt of the Rockies, Jir. Wilby found
roads Ihat were at least good enough
lo drive over iu sonic fashion. The
short stretches referred to bad to be
done on railway trains, bul Jir. Wilby
finished his long tour linn in the con-
viclion that (lie Notional Transcontinental Highway is un entirely feasible
II is proposed Hint a fairly large
parly shall go over tbe route this
year and Hint the road from end lo
cud shall be mapped out and thoroughly explored so Hint those supporting tlie scheme shall be entirely conversant with the difficulties ahead.
The Highway Association made considerable progress during last season,
and will, no doubt, busily follow ils
plan of campaign during Hie coming
summer. The iden is populnr Ibrough-
oiil tbe West, particularly in those
cities through which the road will
run. Tbey recognize ils value uol only
as   u   national   highway   extending

lics through which il runs. There
seems lillie doubt bill liml Ibis rond
will soon exist between the Rocky
Mountains and AVinnipeg, und the en-
lliiisinsin wilh which British Columbia
motorists have supported lhe scheme
seems to promise well for Hie ultimate
building of llic section across Ihnl
province to Vancouver.
Northern Ontario seems In presenl
serious difficulties, bul once around
Hie head of the bikes il is likely Ihal

Dr. Falconer
President of Toronto University
Delivers Brilliant Address to Members
of the Victoria Canadian Club
THE WEEK is indebted In llie
Colonist for the following report of lhe brilliant address delivered
by Dr. Falconer lo the members of
thc Victora Canadian Club. The title
of the address is "Progress and Education," nnd the only regret The
Week hns is thnt the whole was not
reported    verbatim    nnd    circulated
throughout the Province.
Dr. Falconer wns accorded quite an
oval ion upon rising to speak. His
preliminary remarks were of u most
complimentary nature upon the constitution of the club, and the fact
that ils influence stretched right
across the continent struck* hiin ns ex-
cellenl testimony not only of ils intrinsic worth as an organization for
the expression of ('iiniidiiiiiisni, but
nlso as a hoily representative of the
highest sentiments of lhe people of
the country,
"This chain of clubs," he said,
"stretching from oceuu lo ocean, is a
unique creation of lhe Canadian
spirit, nnd one of the besl features of
il is Hint it affords a mini who has
nnything lo sny to the people au op*
porlnnily of saying it without preju
dice. Iu Ihnl respect, I think, the
Canadian Club is without rivals in
uny country, for it welcomes men of
nil shades of opinion and facilitates
their efforts to inform Ihe public upon lhe particular point nl issue. Al
the present lillie the issue is education and progress.
"In speaking on this important
subject to a representative body of
men such as tliis, 1 feel somewhat diffident, for, of course, you are nll
much more conversant with tlie situation in the West than 1 am, and I can
only apply my peculiar point of view
to the question, and speak to it as
freely as I can. If I might speak
very generally on educational progress
in the West, I would say that, since
my lnsl visit, 1 nm greatly impressed
with the tremendous advance that hns
been made not only in educational
facilities, as such, but iu educational
interest. Take Saskatchewan, for example. That wonderful province
hns lately established a university,
and is now operating under a splendidly-equipped stall' of touchers, The
cily of Edmonton is rapidly awakening lo a sense of the great importance
of the educational question, and other
cities are also falling in line.
His Discoveries Please
"Then I enme lo British Columhin,
nud what do 1 find? Perhaps greater
educational progress than anywhere
else. The first thing 1 am informed
upon is the intention on the part of
the Government to establish a great
university nt Point Grey. You hnve
already appointed your president, and
are, I understand, about in a position
to proceed wilh the work of const ruction. That is great news lo an Eastern professor, whose main object in
coming to the const is to learn of the
progress of education iu the Wesl,
nnd, nl lhe same lime, lo meet sonic
of the boys who graduated ill Toronto, and who nre now Inking a linnil
iu the upbuilding of this grent nnd
prosperous Wesl.
"Educational progress bus certainly found n friend in British Columhin.
and nll who nre truly interested in
lhe development of the country nnd
the welfare of the people must rejoice
at the fact. When your university is
established, I hope you will be able to
help up the East, because the relation
ciinnot fail lo be advantageous mutually. Thc Ensl. bus travelled a certain distance along (he educational
highway, and perhaps it has eased up
a little bit. Perhaps we are resting
on our oars. I would not like lo sny
that we arc drifting altogether, but it
may be permissible to suggest thai we
are not pulling the stroke we did, or
the stroke wc nre really capable of
pulling. I look to the establishment
of your university ill British Columbia, as well as the establishment of
olher similar institutions in other
parts of the Canadian West, lo help
us in our efforts.
"In this Fnr West you arc moving very rapidly, in education as in
olher things, nnd I must say that I
look lo this tremendous progress to
stimulate the Enst to take up the
course ngnin. I don't for a moment
believe that wc will let you go abend
of us, despite the fact thnl you have,
and still are drawing some of the besl
life from us. I hope that ns you develop we in the East will bc spurred
on to greater things nlso. I hope thai
when the time conies we will be able
to exchange courtesies. You nre Inking our best men from us, and I hope
Ihat you will send us ninny of your
students for specinl courses and also
for post-graduate work. The adoption of such n practice would go n
long way towards the breeding of a
finer feeling in an educational sense
between the Ensl and the West. Il
would, in short, give them nn interest
in ench other, which up to the presold
they have not had, save through the
alumni of the Enstern colleges coming
lo settle in the West for good."
Estimate of Progress.
Spenking wilh special reference lo
the significance of the terms education and progress, Dr. Falconer said:
"Many people estimate progress iu
the terms uf material development lo
be observed. Progress is an axiomatic
thing, but people experience difficulty
in defining il aud nre upl to nssii-
ciate il with ils material manifestations in transportation systems, grout
centres of population, or the growth
of commerce nnd industry. Belief in
progress is n conviction Ihnl niusl ho
acquired, and for the origin of it
one bus lo go buck ll long wny to the
period of the Greeks1 ascendancy.
And spenking of the Greek I would
like lo sny that it can never disappear so long as people hnrbor the
desire to know lhe origins of mind
nnd inlolloolunl conception." He then
proceeded lo show how the Greeks,
hnving thrown oil' barbarism, erected
lho temple of Athena on Acropolis.nnd
there demonstrated the supremacy of
reason over the powers of darkness,
He then proceeded to further illustrate his point by reference to Inter
periods, and said Hint tho philosophy
of the eighteenth century hnd mnde
the nineteenth century nnd all ils sci-
onlillc developments possible. To estimate progress yon must translate
into ideals.
"Educated people are the people
who make progress," snid Dr. Fnl-
ennor, "nnd T clnim Ihnl the provision of schools of the highest slnnil-
nrd is lhe most pressing necessity
upon the attention of Iho governments
of today, Tlio important things in
education tudnv nre the children I hem-
selves, and the teachers who eater to
their mental make-up. What Ibis and
every other country needs at the present time is a number of meu and women of such standing nniong the people and such self-respect that they
may be trusted to mould the characters and minds of the children us uo
one else.
Higher Prestige Attached.
"Thut lends me lo sny n word upon the status of tlie teaching profession in this country ns compared wilh
older countries. In Grent Britain and
Germany I have found a higher prestige is attached to the teaching profession than pertains in the Dominion
of Canada, Thnl is not ns it should
ho, nud while it remains education
cannot hope to roach lho heights I
seek for it. A higher social prestige
must be accorded the touchers of tlio
country. I would almost judge of thel
true progress of a nation by the nlti-I
tilde it, adopts towards its teachers."'
The old lady was about to make a I
railway journey for the first time, and!
when she arrived at the station she did I
not know what to do. I
"Young man," she said to a porter, I
who looked ahout as old as Methuselah, I
"can you tell me where I can get - my I
ticket?" I
"Why, mum," he replied, "you get itl

Being very stout, she looked at the!

Ineffectual Fires.   By E. JI. Smilh-

This is on artistically written story,
the scene of whieh opens in a village
of Enst Anglic, from which the hero,
who hns in his veins the blood of a
great Italian artist, is passionately
anxious to escape. He does escape, but
even then the pressure of external

no parody of Ibsen, bul a sustained'

A distinctly pleasant, rather old-

merely through hypocrisy, but through
that mixture of good and evil which

ATTENTION is directed to tlio Ninth Annual Report of tlio
International Coal & Coke Company, a synopsis of which is
printed on this page. This is one of the most important industries in Western Canada, us will lie readily gathered from n perusal of tho report. Any concern which finds employment for over
."•00 men and shows a net profit of nearly $250,000 for the year is
entitled to respect. It means that tho labour of .100 men has been
exploited with sufficient intelligence and skill to produce over $1100
each for the men in wages, and a profit to thc operating company of
$500 each. Surely this is the highest possible evidence of good management, and speaks more eloquently than any argument for the profitable and beneficial character of coal mining as an industry, and of
the important part which it plays in building up the country.
The International Coal & Coke Company has been well managed from the start.  Its president, Mr. A. C. Fluiiiinerfelt, is one of    been known to prospectors for mnnv n11^ on which, it is understood nn im*

LAST week the intelligent (?) compositor advanced the arrival of

days. The steamer is expected on
May 27th, and a three-day match is to
he plnyed nt Onk Bny between n tenm
to represent Vnncouver Island and
the Australians on May 29, 30 and 31.
There is some uncertainty as to
whether the great batsman, Victor
Truniper, is among the visitors. He
was listed as a member of the team,
but his name wns not among those
cabled as included. In a recent mutch
between Now South Wales and South
Australia Truniper added to his fame
by a score of 201 runs, not out. The
mutch, itself, was a record-breaker;
there were no fewer than 1570 runs
scored. Trumper's score against
Soutli Australia rounded off his record
of two centuries against every state
team in the Commonwealth and New
Zealand. Against Tasmania his score
was eight short of the 300 mark, not
GOOD scoring prevailed in last
week's cricket. In the Saanich
and Albion C. C. match the Saanich
eleven score1 104 for 6 wickets, Hill
contributing 32 not out, and the Albions rolled up 108 for four wickets,
Boiston batting 52 not out, Ransder 20
not out, and Hoyle was retired for 22.
In the Victoria A eleven vs. University "Incogs," the Victoria team took
141 for five wickets. H. A. Spencer
totalled 55 not out, against 65 for
two wickets. F. A. Sparks contributing 35 for the University. The Albion
team beat Oak Bay badly, taking 73
for one wicket, against 09, all out, for
Oak Bay. E. P. Ward, for the Albions, scored 44 runs. In the Garrison vs. Albion match ihe soldiers
completed their innings for 88, Quar
termaster Sergt. Askey scoring 42,
and the Albions had 39 for two wickets when time was called. Oak Bay
"B" team beat the second Garrison
eleven by seven wiekets. The Garrison batted first and made 98, Wellington 24 and Grimes 14 being top
scorers. Oak Bay made 102 for three
wickets; Corker 38 and Norman 33
not out. The game would have been
left drawn had not the Garrison again
shown that they are the best of
sportsmen by fielding for the last half
hour in heavy rain. Full score: Garrison, 98; Oak Bay, 102 for three

BUNNY ERB, a former resident of
Victoria, recognized as one of
the greatest rugby players on the
Continent, who for long hos been the
full back of the Stanford University
team of California, leaves today for
Alaska, where he will engage in business. His football days are over. Erb
attended the Victoria High School
and was prominent in athletics here.
He played for Stanford in 1908,1910.
1911 and 1912, and in 1910 was a
member of the AU-American team
which toured Australia.
place among the Bees and when
the management has secured the recruits in view to strengthen tlie
cohorts of Herr Michael Lynch it is
expected that the team carrying the
colors of Victoria the Beautiful will
be likely contenders for the bunting.
Swain, a mighty hitting outfielder
from the Sacramento club, formerly
wilh Vancouver, is to take the placo
of Melchoir in right, _:i Alberts, a
right-handed pitcher from Sacramento is being added to the hurling
squad. A deal for an infielder is also
under way. Witb Meek and Swain
heading the slugging crew, the Bees
will have a wrecking squad which
will worry many a pitcher.
Au amusing story is told of a
pitcher who was worried by the big
willow wielders. He kept a little
bonk in which he had the peculiar
failings of the stick handlers noted
for reference, and often during a
gaiiie he would refer to his memorandum lo see what ball was best for
him, that is, to offer to the sluggers.
"Let me see," he used to ruminate,
"ono around that fellow's ear will
get him." Again: "He don't like
those low ones."   And so no.   One
day a Mr. Meek of the big bush, maybe it was Wagner, came to bat, and
he consulted the little book to find
that he had no record. In his dilemna
he turned to the umpire and whispered: "What'11 I give him." "Oh just
groove one," said the umpire laconically, "anil we'll both duck." "By
golly," said the pitcher, "he'll get
a base on balls.''
Of all sad stories of the ball yard
the worst came over the wires from
Portland on Tuesday when, after
Hardin had held the Colts of Portland to two hits for eight innings,
some boots in the infield and a tendency to weaken on the part of Hardin let the Portlanders tally four in
the ninth, just enough to overcome
the lead uf three held by the Bees
and cop the game. It was sad, for
the Bees had expected to climb up
the ladder at Portland. They were
climbing fine, too, but their feet slipped off the rung.
Toduy the amateurs open the local
ball season. The local Moose nine
competes this afternon witb Nanaimo.
Fur the Coal City, Shepherd, a port-
sider, is doing the twirling. He has
been offered a contract by Bob
Brown of the Beavers. The Moose
squud is as follows: T. Townley, R.
Johns, C. Christie, Ed. Steele, Walter
Gravlin, Robert Whyte, Fred Brown,
J. Conroy, Slate Grady, R. H. Shanks,
S. J. Shanks, Alex Potts, Frank
Moore and Ed. Plummer.
WORK is proceeding satisfactorily in laying out the uew golf
course at Colwood, where Mr. J. A.
Sayward and his associates are to
build a country club. In all 240
acres have been secured, including
the former Colwood Race Course, at
nne time the headquarters of the old
Victoria Hunt Club and the scene of
many successful gymkhanas. The
gulf links are almost ready.
In a good match at the Oak Bay
links last Sunday Mr. W. Moffat, the
local pro. and Capt. W. Chambers
defeated Robert Johnston, Seattle's
pro. and H. A. Flaeger of the Seattle
Golf Club, three up and two to play.
In lhe previous match of this foursome the score was tied.
In mid-June Mr. Charles Evans and
his team of touring golfers will he
at the local links. The team of eight
players will leave Chicago for a western tour on June Oth. The visitors

T HAT few people will endorse Ihe
' criticism of the Colonist on
Bishop Perrin. He at least had the
courage of his convictions, and many
people know that he spoke the truth.
* •
That a mixture of religion and politics is about as incongruous as a mixture of oil and water.
* *
That the editor who thinks the stipends paid ministers in Canada are
not scandalously low should have to
live on an average one for a year. In
many cases it would mean an enforced
"hunger strike,"
»   *
That the latest vagary of the suffragettes in painting a statue black
contains a suggestion for a novel
form of punishment which Mr. McKenna has not yet tried.
* #
That if a few militants had lo perform the Jane Shore act in the public
streets tlieir modesty might receive a
shock—and then again it might not.
* «
That Captain John C. Courage,
master of the poacher "Valiant" is a
bad judge of distance.
* »
That he will have some difficulty in
persuading the courts that three miles
is eight and 11 half.
»   *
That the readiness wilh whieh two
large wholesale fish companies divided the cargo suggests collusion in
disposing of stolen goods.
That the old English theory is that
il:    there   were   no   receivers   there
vould he no thieves.
<-.   *
That thc Times is wrong, and the
"scrapping" of the Rainbow is not
the end of Canada's naval policy but
of Laurier's naval abortion.
*►    *
That if the Victoria Times is yearning for a "shirt sleeves" sort of
Governor-General, why not try Roosevelt and his slap-dash style?
That it is not so certain that it is
lhe men of lowly birth alone who are
making great history.
* »
That Demos may be great, but
sometimes he is a great nuisance.
* »
That at the present time he seems
to be the chief backer of the militant
suffragettes, who are certainly making
"the great history of this glorious
Thnt it is just possible there may
be men of wortli among those of noble
That the preference of the Times
smacks too strongly of Lloyd George-
ism ami the Apotheosis of the "scaramouch. 'f
* *
That in the words of Gilbert & Sullivan:—
"Hearts just as pure and fair
May beat in Belgrave Square
As in the lowly air
Of Seven Dials'."
» »
That one local paper said that
Canada would not know what to do
with the Duke of Connaught as Governor-General ,all hough Canada seems
lo have got on very well with him.
* *
That this would appear lo he another instance of "evil communications corrupting good manners."
* »
That if the Times always wrote as
well as it sometimes writes il would
be worth reading.
That Rose Stahl "fetched" her
audience on Tuesday night when she
said that the self-styled moral reformer never could see anything but
the "rotten" side of a thing.
*   »
Thai the cheers Ihat this elicited
could have heen heard as far away as
Morley Avenue, or Wandsworth Ter-
That lhe editor of tlie Colonist does
not know everything even about long
words. '' Cryploconchoidsyplionosto-
mata" was lhe title of a patter comedy played ill England some thirty-
live years ngo by the eminent comedian Charles Colleltc.
That users of lhe telephone would
force a very necessary reform if they
would refuse to converse until tbey
knew the name of tlieir conversationalist.
That Dr. Falconer of Toronto University is "a man among men" and
there will be many regrets that the
way was not clear for him to settle in
British Columbia.
•   *
That while lie differs in appearance
from Dr. Jowelt of Bajliol, he greatly
resembles thai doyen of British masters in other respects.
That lhe appointment of Mr. H. \V.
].. Moore as a commissioner'to investigate the condition of affairs and administration al the Quarantine Sla-
tion is an excellent one.
That the Provincial Librarian might
well add to his valuable collection of
hooks a standard work on "Etiquette
and how to behave."
That lhe head of oue of the most
important new departments would
then have an opportunity of learning
what lie does nol know, nnd of unlearning many things whieh he would
be the better for nol knowing.
That some subordinates appear to
take neither tlieir instructions nor
their cue from the Minister.
«   «
That if Ihe new theatre is ready for
occupation in November it will be due
to what the Colonist calls the "dynamic energy" of Mr. Simon Leiser.
Thai the announcement of the let-
ling of the contract will revive public
interest in a neglected topic.
That there is no truth in the rumor
Ihal the Attorney-General intends to
enforce lhe Act governing the operation of the tramcar system in British
That the solicitor of the company
has unearthed an old Act of the time
of Charles 11. which grants immunity
for all lime to tram companies operating on Vancouver Island.
That no one is surprised at Mr.
Higgins, but who would have thought
il of Mr. A. E. McPhillips, K.C?
»   »
That thanks to this discovery, overcrowding will continue during the
summer season.
*   »
That Ihcse days the Victoria Times
has "got 'em" badly. It is beginning
to "see visions nnd dream dreams."
That what distresses it most is that
at every turn it is compelled to "see
Mr. Price."
»   *
That if he were not such a substantial vision one could imagine the proprietor of lhe Times paraphrasing
Lady Macbeth's immortal adjuration, "Out damned spot."
»   *
Thai the Honourable AVilliam can
possess his soul in patience, for it will
he ninny moons before he sees the last
of Mr.'Price.
That ns a successful politician he
seems to be a better "stayer" than
tiie proprietor of thc Times.
