THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, PEER'
RECIPROCITY
It is many years since any one subject
|o dominated public interest as the pro-
loosed. Reciprocity Agreement betAveen Canada ancl the United States.   There is a
>'reat difference of opinion on both sides
■|>f the Line  as  to  its  effect,  and  as to
Jvhether it should be endorsed.   The issue
lias been complicated by injecting tlie cry
if "Annexation," and a few extremists like
Beauchamp Clark have gained notoriety
jiy tlieir extravagant utterances in this direction.   Premier McBride, as might have
lieen expected, took a moderate, sane and
Itatesinanlike view of the subject.   He does
iot believe that Canadian loyalty to the
Empire is dependent on commercialism,
lnt contends that loyalty to the Flag is
loth a settled and a growing sentiment
Ihroughout the Dominion.   He does, how-
Iver,  share  the  view  expressed  in Tlie
IVeek when the purport of the Agreement
l/as lirst made known, that it is not in the
[est interests of tho Dominion because it
las  unnecessary  in   view of the  recent
[leniGoratic victories throughout the States
Ind the absolute certainty that in the very
■ear future the American tariff would be
lit in half.   No student of events can have
lissed the significance of that Democratic
Ictory;  it was the revolt of public opin-
l-n, not only against the McKinley Tariff,
lit against the supineuess of the Republi-
Iiii Government in failing to implement
|s election pledges to reduce ihe tariff.
[his public sentiment has been fanned into
Ifgressive activity by the high cost of liv-
ancl undoubtedly this is the personal
Itctor which is determining the prompt ac-
Tptance  of  the  Reciprocity  Agreement
ith by the American people and  their
legislature.   The next point of objection
I that the Agreement is vicious in prin-
le in that it sacrifices one class of Am-
licans and one class of Canadians for the
■nefit of other classes. Jt is a direct trade
jfween certain Americans and certain Ca-
|iilians precisely of the sort that when
'acfised between representatives of dif-
Irent industries in Parliament or Con-
less is denounced as "log-rolling."     It
ijiukl be easy to show how from one end
the Dominion to the other certain local
Iterest would benefit and certain other invests would suffer. It just depends on
I'o locality chosen. For instance, Cali-
|;rnia fruit-growers will gain markets at
expense of California lumbermen,
Bhei'inen, dairy-men and grain-growers.
Iiitish Columbia "will lese, and will lose
[avily by unrestricted competition in her
ist important products. Again, the lmn-
[ring industry of British Columbia which
loented on the Pacific Coast w_il benefit
[cause it will have ready and cheap access
American cities on the sea-board..    But
ie lumber-men of the interior of British
blumbia will be heavy losers because they
nnot compete at present with the Ain-
[ican lumber-men, who for years have
[en invading our prairie provinces, and
fat is their natural market. President
Lift says that he does not expect that the
lieration of the vAgreement will at once
Tduce the cost of farm products to the
pople of the United States. This is a
[tive admission. It will undoubtedly re-
|ice the cost to the middleman whether
purchases from the American or the
lanadian farmer. The same argument ap-
lies on this side of the Line. No doubt
Je produce merchants here will purchase
lore cheaply from the American grower
|an   heretofore,   but   so   perfect   is   the
lombirie" that the consumer will con-
Inne to pay the same. It is not a little
l.gnificant to note some of the phrases

Mr. Richard Grigg, viz., that the Britisli System, and that any invasion of that ter-
Preference is not what its sponsors claim,    ritory by other systems or companies can
only be temporary, and must be terminated as soon as the City is in a position to
deliver Sooke water to the adjoining municipality. This is not to be regarded so
much iu the light of a victory as an auth
oritative ruling, and in the opinion of The
Week it gives Victoria all that it has a
that it has never worked to any appreciable
extent for British interests, and that since
its introduction Canadian imports of American goods have increased in a vastly
greater ratio than its imports from the Old
Country. No honest man who understands
the subject will for a moment, contest the
statement that British interests will suffer right to ask. It is now the duty of the

very widespread reduction in the tariff on mittee and each time had been put off on
American goods. The last argument the plea that during the coming year the*
against the Agreement is by far the most    problem would be solved, and it is simply
because Oak Bay had reached the limit of
endurance, ami meanwhile its necessities
had increased to such an extent, that the
Committee could not sanction further delay. As to the terms of the settlement, it
need only be said that they are perfectly
fair to all parties. It is only right that if
Oak Bay is forced to incur an immediate
expenditure of $100,000 on a special pipe
line because A'ictoria is not ready to fulfil
its obligations and give a suitable supply of
water, and if the Oak Bay territory is to
be preserved for A'ictoria as determined by
the Committee .then, when the City is
ready, it should take over and pay for tbe
emergency pipe line. This should be no
hardship if the pipe is laid in the first
instance by such a route as will satisfy the
engineers of both municipalities*, or their
arbitrator. And since practically all matters' of difference which could arise in the
future are to be settled by tbe Water Commissioners constituting an absolutely impartial tribunal, it may reasonably be
hoped that the relations of the two municipalities will be entirely amicable. Perhaps the less said about certain incidents of
the last few weeks, the better. But the
public press will be derelict in its duty if
it fails to point out Iioav seriously the
prestige of the City has been injured by
the conduct of its .Mayor, nnd how much
it might have suffered in its material interests if the Private Bills Committee Ims
been presided over by a less capable and
honourable Chairman than Mr. Neil .McKay. Time and again the patience of the
Committee was strained to the utmost by
the disreputable tactics of the Mayor, who
contradicted himself, contradicted his
counsel, contradicted the City Council and
contradicted his expert advisers. Indeed,
he cut such a sorry figure that everyone
present must have felt, heartily ashamed,
ft is safe to say that never before has a
important, although some crtics have
dubbed it sentimental. It is in principle
and in spirit a turning aside from the
goal towards which Canadians have been
led by all the great influences jf the last
few years. Since Mr. Chamberlain so
doininantly sounded the note of Imperial
Federation Canada has been marching in
that direction. Public sentiment has been
greatly quickened ; devotion to the Empire
has been deepened and definite lines of
federation have become clearly outlined.
There has been a drawing together of all
sections of the Empire and a supreme solidarity is already looming on the horizon.

uot fake a gloomy view of the situation,
ror does if share the "blue ruin" anticipations of ilr. Foster. It has lively recollections of similar prognostications by Sir
Richard Cartright twenty years ago, and
has as little use for the one as the other.
It believes that Canada is too big, too
broad, and its potentialities too great fo

ill-advised policy. It is satisfied that if
the Reciprocity vAgrcemcnt is endorsed, as
seems inevitable, the good sense of the
people will prevent if from becoming an

sists in interfering, even to the extent of
vetoing appointments made by his chiefs.
He savs that he has a right to do this, and
will continue doing it. The Council takes
the ground that the Mayor cannot override resolutions passed by a majority of its
number, and here for the moment the matter rests. The AVeek does not pretend to
be able to pronounce a legal opinion on
this or any subject but unless the conten-
tion of the Council is correct it has no
status ami might as well be dispensed with.
For five years The AA'eek, speaking from
ascertained facts, has pointed out that
much, if not all the gross mismanagement
which characterised the execution of public works in the City has been due to interference by the Mayor, and at times by
some of the Aldermen. The worst offender
•among the latter was got rid of. The
-Mayor seems to have a permanent lease on
his position, but if so, it should be possible
to control .his actions to some extent, and
at any rate to preserve the functions of the
Council. It is a long time since any
Mayor took fhe high-handed course adopted by Mr. .Morley on two occasions within
a week; first in threatening to cut off the
water supply from Oak Bay and then iii
practically telling the AVater Commissioner not fo employ a surveyor whom he
had selected. If this is the kind of mayoral
control which the citizens of A'ictoria want
then all they have to do is to keep on reelecting .Air. Morley, because it is the only
kind of control which he understands, that
of the arbitrary, unreasoning, vindictive
Czar. If the occurrences of thc last few
weeks have not opened their eyes to the
(lungers of such methods, nothing will.
Probably the position will be made a little
clearer when flic Courts have pronounced
upon the validity of the last .Municipal
Election; if it should turn out that thc
lists were illegal if can hardly be forgotten
thnt the City Solicitor pointed out this
fad to the .Mayor nt the time the Revision
Committee was silting, and that he ignored
the advice tendered, According to the
opinion of the best authorities it is not
improbable that the City has been landed
in n legal difficulty of the most compromising character; one which may imperil
important financial flotations, and one
which in nny event may require special
legislative action to preserve, even temporarily, the machinery of municipal government and administration.
Parliamentary Committee witnessed such
an illustration of incapacity and ineptitude. Indeed, it is about time that the
ratepayers considered the seriousness of
a situation which becomes more serious
every day. When the Mayor and the City
Solicitor have to be severely censured by
a Committee of the House; when they
have to be charged by the Council, as well
THE BUDGET
The daily press has furnished the public with a detailed report of the Budget
Speech, it is therefore unnecessary for Thc
AVeek to do more than congratulate Mr.
Ellison on a. comprehensive, lucid and
effective exposition of the finances of the
Province, and to congratulate everybody
privileged to live in British Columbia on
the era of prosperity which has dawned
on the "last best West." Faults of administration there mny be; some errors
of policy mny be admitted, but, when due

At The Street
Corner
 By THE LOUNOER 	
A certain young lady, the daughter of one of Victoria's most prominent citizens, was lately completing
her toilette before her looking-glass
when a bullet whizzed past her head
and buried itself in the wall. Two
children, the worthy offspring of another prominent Victorian, were
playing in the garden, when their
mother was startled at hearing the
explosion of a lire-arm at close
quarters. This explosion was immediately followed by a second. On
hurrying out of the house she discovered that bullets were passing
over the garden in dangerous proximity to the children.
*   *   *
Sounds like the opening paragraph
of one of those delightful books detailing the horrors of the war of the
future.    A reader  might be excused
for imagining that I was leaving the
Street Corner to pose as a war correspondent and that    "The    Yellow
Peril" had    become    an    established
fact.    Nothing  of  the  kind.    I   am
merely retailing a couple of incidents
which occurred lately, chosen at haphazard from many others, and which
illustrate   the   time-worn  adage  that
peace  hath   her  dangers  as  well  as
war.    For these two instances were
just the result of a little thoughtless
gun-practice   on   the   part   of   "Our
Boys."    It appears that in  the first
mentioned case a couple of boys in
a boat were trying their skill with a
gun by shooting at various birds and
other objects, caring not one jot or
tittle  whether  they   were  firing  inshore or not.   The two children owed  their  narrow  escape  from  death
to the vagaries of a youth of some
eighteen  summers who had actually
placed a can on a stump in the highway and  was  using it  as  a  target.
Nobody was actually hurt; so nothing was done.
*   *   *
Now mark my next point.    There
were   two   small   boys   playing  with
fire-arms on the beach at Oak Bay.
The Oak Bay constable, a man of no
tact  and  without  the  slightest  idea
of the dignity of his office menaced
them  with   his   revolver   when   they
refused  to  surrender  their weapons.
Because the constable was a fool the
boys were let off without any penalty
being exacted.   Why? What possible
extenuation  of their  offence  can  be
found in the fact that the constable
went about his duty like a lunatic?
The boys had broken the law before
he had ever seen them.    The public
has  a right  to    demand    protection
from  irresponsible  persons,    and if
the latter act through ignorance or
thoughtlessness   they   are,   or   ought
to be, still liable to condign punishment.    It was merely a providential
piece of good fortune that neither the
boys in the boat nor the youth on the
highway  nor  yet  the  boys    on  the
beach   were   guilty   of   manslaughter
and  when  the  latter    were    caught
red-handed  by  the  guardian  of  the
law himself they  should have been
so treated that their fate would have
been a warning for others.   As it is,
the logical reasoning of these youngsters   (for   it   must   be   remembered
that tliere arc none so logical as the
small boy when he has got his elders on the hip)  will be    that    they
might just as well do as they like in
the matter  of promiscuous  shooting
as   the   odds  are   that  the  "Bobby"
will  make  some  "break"    and    that
they'll be let off through some foolishness on his part.
* * *
And the worst of it is that a
"break" of this nature is always the
signal for an outburst of indignation
levelled at thc whole body of policemen because of the action of an individual. When, however, one comes
to think of the thousands and thousands of policemen there arc and of
how seldom it is that there is any
cause of complaint against any one
of them, it is difficult to understand
this curious trait of human nature.
But it is so. Let a lawyer be found
guilty   of    embezzlement,     and    all
lawyers are classed as rogues.    If a
clergymn.i   falls  from  grace  what  a
hullaballoo   there  is  about  the  hypocrisy of the cloth!  Similarly, when
a  policeman  is  weighed  in  the  balance and found wanting, the cry goes
up,  "Where are  our boasted  guardians of the peace?" And it needs a
lot of good qualities to make a successful   "bobby?"       Tact,     patience,
strength, agility,    honesty—you    can
through the whole gamut of the virtues, but he must not have one vice,
or at least, if he has  one, he  must
never   disclose   it,   which   comes   to |
the same thing.    He must be omniscient,  omnipotent,  and  if hc  wishes
to keep in favour with  powers  that
reign   in   the  area,    omnivorous    as
well.    And the penalty of failure in
these respects means—well, we shall
see   what   Oak   Bay   Municipality   is
going to do about it.    In the meantime it is  sufficient for us  to know
that there are some very lucky boys
sitting down  to their meals in Oak
Bay  at   present,  who    might    with
more   profit   to   the   community   be
preferring to eat them off the mantelpiece.

When the ancients considered that
they had been too abundantly blessed
they  were  accustomed  to  propitiate
the gods by sacrificing some of their
most  valued  treasures.    If there  be
any people in Victoria Who are feeling too happy and would prefer to
start  the  day with  a    few    gloomy
thoughts to keep the gods from being
jealous   I   would    recommend    that
they choose some dull  morning  before breakfast for a stroll round Beacon Hill Park.   I came into town via
the Park one morning this week ancl
have had the "blues" ever since.    It
was cold and damp, but I knew that
before I got out of bed.   It was the
piles   of   rubbish   heaped  up   in   the
deer enclosure apparently left to rot,
and the desolate state of the unfortunate animals in their cages which
gave   me   food   for   thought.     As   I
have said before I should like to see
every   Zoological   Garden   under  the
face  of the  sun abolished.    I  think
that there are few sadder sights than
that of an eagle in a cage; so close
to the sky he loves, but yet so far.
Why cannot education be served as
well by thc preserving of the animals
in a dead state?
*   *   *
Thus pondering, a ray of sunshine
floated  over  my  mental    depression
when  I  remembered  that  there was
in  the  office  some  memoranda  concerning the  founding  of  a  Cat and
Dog Hospital in Victoria, and on my
arrival I hastened to look it up. The
primary idea is that the members of
the Cat Club should gather in stray
cats and dogs, obtain veterinary advice  concerning them  when  needed,
and  provide  suitable    homes.      The
Club will also undertake the care of
pets during the owners' absence. Nor
is this undertaking wholly altruistic.
The first  principles  of hygiene  play
a  prominent  part  in  its  conception,
for it is well known that infection is
readily carried on the bodies of stray
animals of this class.    The  Club intends to  carry out a vigorous  campaign  in  thc  interests  of  the  dumb
creation and will endeavour to enlist
the aid of the Government, the City,
thc Medical Profession and the Clergy.    There  arc  various  schemes  on
foot  to raise the    necessary    funds,
but the only one which  I  can mention in the space at my command is
by means of a dance to be held at
the Broad Street Hall on Feb. 22nd.,
the entrance price for which will be
$r.oo for lady and gentleman with an
additional   50  cents  for   each   extra
lady.    I  am  requested to  state  that
Mrs. Kelly, at The King Edward Hotel, will enrol new members and will
be  pleased  to  give full  and  explicit
details to all inquirers.    For my part
T wish the scheme all the success it
deserves, and only hope that the wild
animals will manage to find some Society to restore them either to their
pristine  freedom  or  to  the  merciful
embrace of death.
I wonder why it is that Irish
names seem to fit in so appropriately
in a catch phrase. For instance, you
have often heard the gentle interrogation "Has anyone here seen Kelly?"

Now there is a slight change in Victoria, and the question runs, "Have
you ever had a chop at Murphy's?"
Have you? "Murphy's," you know,
is on Broad street and has established a grill, a real grill where you can
see your steak or chop grilling, and a
grill which sends the order up hot,
before it has had time to freeze between kitchen and table. This innovation on the part of the proprietors
is proving very popular and as the
prices range within the compass of
even a Lounger's pocket whilst the
quality of the comestibles is above
reproach it is a "sure thing" that the
experiment will be entirely successful.

There was an effective little scene
on Tuesday evening at the regular
meeting of Pride of the Island Lodge,
Sons of England, when the services
of Past President H. 0. Savage
were recognised by the presentation
of a P. P.'s jewel. Mr. Savage who
now holds the high position of District Deputy of the organisation was
eulogised in a well considered speech
by Senior Past President Chadwick
who dwelt on his special qualifications
and of his five years' valuable work
on behalf of the Society. Mr. Savage rose to reply amid musical honours ancl acquitted himself as befitted an Essex boy.

What Peary Said of his
North Pole Journey
"I have absolutely no comment," said Peary, the other
day, "to make upon Cook's admission that he did not know
himself whether he had reached the big nail. I'll tell you,
however, a little adventure we had."
He then referred to the privations suffered by the members of his own expedition. He said that for a month the
sole article of diet eaten by one of the party, a Dane, consisted of dried bones.
One of his listeners was incredulous. "That must have
been a wonderful Dane of yours, Peary," said he.
'Yes,' said Peary, "hc was a splendid dog." As
ordinary thermometers will not gauge a polar shivver, so
it is with "White Rock." Ordinary so-called mineral
waters are not a marker to White Rock, the pure, natural
lithia water. Peary, perched on an ice-flow with his feet
overhanging the edge of creation, had no swapable position
compared with your present home or hotel location with a
bottle of cold, sparklinp- White Rock at your elbow. Heed
not the seductive legends of other brands, insist upon being
supplied with White Rock because it is absolutely pure and
well worth the little extra difference in price.

MUSIC
AND   TIIE   STAGE
The Man Of the Hour
Those     who     believe     in     omens
Should take heart of grace that the
re-opening  of The Victoria Theatre i
jsynchonizcd  with   an   excellent   pro-1
{auction  of  a  successful    play.    The
renovated theatre is a great improve- j
inent, there  being additional  seating
capacity and wider and more convenient exits, so that the crowds coining
Blown from thc balcony will no longer
lind   a   seething   mass   of   "stallites"
[rying to force their way out.    Very
general   were   the   appreciative    re-.
hiarks over-heard last Tuesday night, I
(here  being  a   sufficiently  well-lilled
■louse to allow of favourable comparison with the old order of things.
The  play,  which    deals    with  the
I'boss"   system   in   municipal   politics
Jn  the United  States, is well-known
lo  most theatre-goers and needs  no
fomment.    Of  the   players  I   would
(penally select Mr. John Moore, who
Is   Richard   Horrigan,    thc    "Boss,"
■lade an  impressive  figure and  sustained   well   his   part.   Mr.    Warren
Ionian admirably portrayed the hyp-
Icritical financier who holds the mon**
ly-bags for the gang.    Comedy was
|upplied   by   Mr.   John   Morris,   the
fish opponent of Horrigan, and Mr.
liarry  English  who  contributed  the
luaint slang so dear to the heart of
lie American  collegian.    As the vil-
liin  with  a "yellow streak" Mr. Ed-
['ard   Keane   was   hardly   convincing
Ihilst  the  rest  of  the  men  had  tlie;
jolcs   of   sticks   to   play;   and   they
Bayed them as sticks.    At intervals
Ine might  have been    excused    for
■linking that their hands were liter-
lily glued to their trouser legs. Miss
fleanor Haber can hardly bc called a
reat actress, but she played with a
lood deal of sympathy and was cer-
Iiinly   thc   strongest   actress   of   the \
lirce who appeared on the stage. To
liy mind the performance on Tuesday
light  was  far  above  the average of
|hat  Victorians  arc  accustomed  to,
_th as to the play itself and the act-;
■Jg of it.
ft is indeed satisfactory to bc able [
li say that last Thursday evening the
|cople of Victoria proved that they
i>Tlld appreciate a good concert when
lie chance was afforded them and
Ihen they had had plenty of time to
lialise the fact that the chance was
liming. The Victoria Theatre was
Icll filled on the night in question
Ihen Mr. L. Turner and his orches-
la provided an ambitious programme,
l/ery item of which was splendidly
Tndered. The piece de resistance
|om Tannhauser was treated supcrb-
M. Max Steindel was enthusias-
hally received and the talented 'cell-
It played for an encore Schumann's
Ifraumerei." For the last time Mr.
larry Davis was heard in public and
usual again proved his popularity
a concert singer. The heartiest
|ingratulations are due to Mr. Turn-
for the success which has attend-
his laborious efforts in working up
Is orchestra to such a pitch of exigence.
New Grand Theatre
1 If Considine    &    Sullivan's    Road
[how No. 4 Company, whicii is due
.-re next week is really going to pro-
|'de a better bill than the company
(hich is at present holding the board '
the New Grand Theatre there will
I'rtainly be "something doing." But
I'anager Trumbull says that this is
lie case, and he ought to know. This
leek Miss Gertrude Dunlap as "The
lod-Vil Girl" has a cleved, amusing
lid, shall I say artful or artless, lit-
le talk with  the audience? At least
lie   does   the   talking,   except   when
few Virden  interposes some comic-
lity, and the audience tries to stop
jughter so as  to    appreciate    what
femes next. "Number 44" as present-
§1 by Miss Sylvia Bidwell & Co., is
|i  ambitious  playlet  for  the vaudeville stage.   Melodramatic to a degree
needs good acting and clever stag-
Jig to  make  it a  success,    but  the
jimpany responsible  for its prodtic-
Bon   has   been   "making  good,"   and
I
most people think that it is the best
turn of this kind that has appeared
in Victoria. The biggest hit of the
evening, however, is scored by
Miss Edith A. Montrose, who is
a quick change artiste, an actress and
an exposer of stage secrets all in one.
In this last feature she is unique,
being the only woman actually making up in full view. She ranges from
i-S to 80 at will and is good at any
old age. As a human music-box Mr.
Robert Roland probably has few
equals; anything from a 'cello to a
brass band can be imitated by his
facile mouth and set off to advantage
by his eccentricities. Just in case
anyone may have a little more melancholy to drive away before departure the entertainment ends up with
three clowns, clever acrobats all. The
Prosit Trio, as they style themselves
just put the finishing touch on an Ai
bill. Thc theatre has been thoroughly overhauled and only one improvement remains to be suggested, and
that is with regard to the Grandi-
scopc. Whether the screen or the
machine is at fault I know not, but it
must be acknowledged that the pictures shown at The New Grand are
not up to the standard of the rest of
the performance.

Jessie McAllister, in "Seven Days"
The Majestic Theatre
I think that the cineamtograph men
ought to adopt a motto of the Royal
Engineers, viz. "Ubique," for they
certainly get everywhere. When it
conies to moving pictures being taken from the top of a moving train and
the said pictures present a thrilling
fight between two brakemen, it would
seem that nothing can escape the eye
of the camera. But that's what we
saw in "The Little Station Agent,"
at the beginning of the week at The
Majestic. It was an exceedingly
goocl film and accurate in every detail. Pictures from the life of Napoleon also proved a drawing card.
Romano's  Theatre
"The Animated Gazette' is one of
thc most interesting of all the films
shown in the Moving picture houses
and at Romano's the subjects chosen
are always well worth seeing. Drama
taken from the times of the Red Terror was responsible for a thrilling
story on canvas during the first part
of the week. Homeless people who
finish their work about six but do not
want to cline so early regard it as a
great boon that this theatre is open
throughout the clay from noon till
late at night.

This week we have been introduced
to a female Sherlock Holmes in thc

A Fashionable Wedding
A marriage of interest tn Victorians was celebrated on January
4th, in London, Eng., when Miss
Anna Emilia Sehl. of this city, was
married to Mr. E. S. G. Dottridge,
F.R.G.S.. only sen of Mr. Edwin
Dottridge, J. P., of 3, Heath Drive,
Hampstead, Loudon. Eng. Thc wedding was celebrated at Bromptoti
Oratory. The bride wa very charmingly gowned in white chiffon velvet
which wns relieved by bands of tiny
silver roses and leaves, and pearl and
crystal embroidery. From the- front
of the corsage depended a beautiful
panel of white ninon, embroidered in
silver. A girdle of pearls outlined
the high ceinturc. and fell in two
long ends finished with pearl and
crystal tassels. The full court train
was inset between the shoulders in
a novel shape surrounded entirely
with a narrow band of roses and
myrtle and lined with silver tissue
which was daintily turned back at
one corner with a large silver rose
and leaves. The veil was arranged
over a Juliet cap of silver, the front
encircled with a filet of natural green
myrtle leaves and blossoms at the
back interspersed with tiny sprigs of
white heather. Thc bridal bouquet
consisted of white lilies of the valley and real orange blossoms, tied
with a silver ribbon. The bridesmaids were. Miss Margery Dottridge,
Miss Frances Dean. Miss Cecelia
Hoogemloorn, and Miss Kitty Dottridge. They were dressed alike in
dresses of soft white satin, covered
with tunics of Irish crochet lace,
edged with brown fur. Their costumes were completed by large black
beaver hats with silver cords and
tassels, and rolled gracefully up on
one side showing the pale pink silk
beaver underneath. They carried
large flat muffs of white satin edged
with opalescent fringe. The bride
was given away by Mr. J. If. Turner,
formerly premier of Britisli Columbia
and now agent general for B. C. in
London. After the ceremony a large
reception was held at the Hans Crescent lintel. Bclgravia. The bride's
going away costume was of soft grey
chiffon velvet, with trimmings of silk-
military braid. She wore a close fit-
ling toque to match, finished with a
steel bow in front and a small edging of lace framing the face. The
bridegroom's gift to the bride was a
emerald ring with two surroundings
of diamonds, also a travelling case
with silver fittings. Thc bride's gift
to the groom' was a handsome diamond gipsy ring.

HANDING OF BOUQUETS
The Victoria Times is nothing
if not intelligent and it quickly
saw the point mid appropriated
the choice bouquet which Premier
McBride handed out at the Press
Dinner, when he complimented
the Press of the Province, and
spoke of the "high grade" of the
British Columbia newspapers.
The attention whicii the Times has
always paid to Premier McBride,
the Hon. Mr. Bowser and other
conspicuous members, of their
party renders it peculiarly fitting
that that paper should carefully
select the largest bunch of violets
for itself.

MINING
The local mining stock market can hardly be said to be in a healthy
condition. The Portland Canal Mining Company have given notice that
they intend to raise $70,000 more working capital by issuing debentures
bearing interest at ten per cent, per annum. It is understood that this
money has been subscribed, and this is the least that could be expected
from the prophecies freely made by the large holders of stock early last
fall as to the probable earning capacity of the mine. Owing to those prophecies the stock at one time touched forty cents and over per share,
and as a large amount of stock which originally cost but a fraction of this
amount was distributed to the public, the least the sellers can do, is to
protect the purchasers of stock at high levels, by subscribing to the
debenture issue.. Then again more especially on the Vancouver Stock
Exchange there has been a systematic, and so far as the public are advised,
a quite unwarranted uurry in American-Canadian and Alberta Canadian
Oil shares. Quite a number of these shares found their way into the hands
of the public at ten cents per share, and as American-Canadian are quoted
at between forty and fifty cents per share and Alberta Canadian at and
around twenty cents per share, those who bought at ten cents per share
can make a very handsome profit upon their purchases. If these holders
are wise they will realize their profits whilst they may, and will not wait
for the predicted rise in these stocks which is to take them to anywhere
from the dollar to the ten-dollar mark. On both these properties oil may
be found, and again it may not, and holders of stock who can sec a hundred
per cent, profit in their investment, will do well to take it, whilst there
is still real money in sight to purchase. The Red Cliff Mining Company's
shares are quoted at from 1.30 to 1.40 and transactions at these prices on
the Vancouver Exchange are spasmodically repeated over the wires. As
during the past three weeks hardly a thousand shares of this stock have
changed hands on the Victoria Exchange, it would probably be well for
holders to turn them into cash, if a purchaser can be found at anywhere
near these figures. At the present time and at present prices it will be
good policy to sell all the local mining stocks quoted, with the following
exceptions:—International Coal and Coke, Nugget Gold Mines, Rambler
Cariboo, Royal Collieries and Lucky Jim, as all these properties have some
intrinsic merit.
In the first nine months of the present fiscal year the foreign trade of
Canada reached the record total of $557,999,622, which is an increase of
$65,000,000 over the corresponding period of last year. The increase is
wholly in imports, the exports showing a falling off principally in foreign
goods. Exports of manufactures showed a substantial increase; exports
of farm produce a slight decrease.
PROPOSED TARIFF AROUSES GREAT INTEREST
Some Facts, Figures and  Opinions Which Will Enable the Discussion
to be Followed More Easily
The proposed trade agreement between Canada and the United States
bears two indelible imprints. It means possibly the first step to complete
free trade between two countries to be obtained by periodical revisions
of tariff. Despite the maintenance of the British preference, it means, too,
another commercial chasm between the Motherland and the Dominion.
The outcome of the negotiations is the logical result of conditions as they
are. Washington and Ottawa diplomats have sought to arrange the
exchange of merchandise and commodities, without doing national harm,
without injuring to any considerable extent particular industries, and at
the same, time without displeasing. Standing in the valley of diplomacy,
surrounded by mountains of objection, Mr. Fielding has done well. The
proper objections of those who consider themselves as having been made
unduly to bear the brunt of the burden will be heard both at Ottawa and

at Washington. Their voices will probably be raised with sufficient
strength and logical argument as to effect some changes in the proposed
revision. Business and commercial spheres must number as a permanent
factor in the situation, the steady pilgrimage of our present government
to the policy of complete free trade between Canada and the neighboring
Republic.
Mr. Fielding has said that his only fear respecting the agreement is
-that such a good bargain for Canada may not be approved by Congress.
This opinion is strengthened by dispatches from Washington. The
general view among members of the American tariff league is that while the
tentative proposals are in many ways theoretically admirable, such a
measure if passed into law would be found unworkable and unfair. It is
thought, too, that the farming interests adjacent to the Northern border,
and in a less degree throughout thc United States, will be solidly against
the acceptance of the agreement.
It will be interesting to note what effect a new tariff will have upon
the large number of American factories in Canada. Thc Monetary Times
estimated not long ago that $279,000,000 of American capital had been
invested in the Dominion. Of that amount, American branch plants and
factories represented about $110,000,000. An Indiana plow company, which
recently established works at Hamilton, Ontario, will not, it is said, manufacture a number of lines originally intended. If articles can cross the
international boundary free of duty or under a low tariff, American manufacturers will give serious consideration to proposed branch establishments
iii Canada.
While the tariff agreement directly affects only a few items in which
Great Britain is interested, some important considerations are involved.
Sentiment cannot hold together a mother country and its overseas dependencies. Flesh and blood are good ties, but they need the practical to
give them the strength of cement. Talk of Imperialism is good, but the
echoes die unless speech is backed by commercial muscle. Individually
and collectively. Great Britain is not sufficiently tied with Canada by
bands of commerce. Our kinsmen overseas must recognize, as President
Taft said the other day, that identity of interests of two peoples linked
together by race, language, political institutions ancl geographical proximity
is .a* good reason for reciprocity between the United States and Canada.
And the greatest of these is geographical proximity, because it smacks of
-the practical. It is the most natural thing to trade with our neighbour,
and, while Canada loves sentiment much, it respects dollars and cents
also. That streak runs in every nation. It may be for a similar reason
that Great Britain has not given Canada the commercial attention desired.
It has other and perhaps bigger interests elsewhere.
The proposed agreement makes it more difficult but not impossible for
Great Britain to get in this country a trade foothold which cannot be
budged. But renewed energy is needed. The merchant, the manufacturer,
will have to take a greater interest and personally visit the field. The
responsibility of the British Trade Commissioner at Montreal is doubled.
The American has climbed one more step, which in some ways means that
the British has slipped back one. We have the assurance of Mr. Fielding
that the British preference will be maintained. Those interested in that
principle should not let time pass before discovering how that preference
is affected ancl giving it the needed revision. The coming Imperial Conference in London need not look far for an important subject for discussion.
Although Canada has absorbed £300,000,000 of British capital,
Canadian trade as it relates to Great Britain and the United States is,
despite.the present tariff, greatly in favour of the latter country. Last
year, the United States sold to us $239,000,000 worth of goods, of which
$106,000,000 came in free of duty. In exchange we sold to them $110,000,000
of goods, only $4,000,000 in excess of the value of the American merchandise
which entered Canada duty free. During the same year, Great Britain
purchased from Canada goods valued at $149,000,000, while we bought from
Great Britain only $95,000,000 worth. And in the same year we borrowed
from Grefat Britain $195,000,000. The Mother Country is thus loaning us
money for very necessary development at the rate of about $200,000,000 per
annum and at the same time is purchasing from us $40,000,000 worth of
goods in excess of the purchases by the United States. While we appreciate
the private investments of Americans whicli have yielded to them an
adequate return, British capital has given Canada the wherewithal to build
a national backbone. The desire now is to make use of that and not to
have it weakened through commercial obliteration by the United States.
-But Great Britain has to move in other ways.

Why Speculate
When you don't have to?   The under-mentioned investments are absolutely safe and will
return  handsome profits on the  money invested:
HERALD STREET, between Douglas and. Government, two lots, 60x120 each. Revenue.
$45 month. Central, close to City Hall, the C. P. R. freight depot, and the proposed
terminus on Douglas St. of the Saanich Extension of the B. C. Electric Railway. No
other lots in this block offered less than $14,500 each.   Price for the two $25,000
VIEW STREET—We have a choice property near Quadra producing a small revenue that
we can deliver at a less figure than anything else is offered in this block. With the completion of the several large buildings now proposed for the corners of Government and
View, Broad, Douglas and View, the latter street will divert more traffic from Government than any other street in the city. Plans are already completed for substantial
buildings on View St., east of Douglas.

C. P. R. Irrigation Scheme
The Canadian Pacific Railway
Company will erect a great dam on
the Bow River, near Bassanto, Alta.,
in connection with the irrigation system of the company. It will enable
500,000 acres to be brought under
the water.
Will Encourage Immigration
Arrangements are being made for
encouragement of the immigration of
large numbers of Russians who will
settle in North Western Canada. The
inducements will be made in transportation on the trans-Pacific steamship lines, touching at Victoria, Cali-
gary will be the distributing point.
A Transportation Problem
The importation of thirty thousand
goats and sheep from the ranges of
Oregon is taxing the comprehension
of the popular master of the steamer
Henriette. The question of conveying one thousand animals—the capacity of the steamer—means thirty
trips from Seattle to Graham Island.
Dominion  and Provincial
News
The Kootenay Central
For two miles of the Kootenay
Central railway will be built this
year. Two years ago the company
built some ten miles south of Golden,
and last year the grading was completed between Galloway, east of
Wardner, and Fort Steele.
Trite But True
The facilities afforded the citizens
of Cumberland in the matter of postal
service and accommodations may be
Six Feet of Steel Galena
W. E. Zwickey, manager of the
Rambler-Cariboo mine, reports that a
strike of six feet of steel galena, running 170 ounces of silver to the ton
has been made on that property. The
new discovery as at the 1000 foot
level and is regarded as proof that
the veins on this property continue to
depth with their values increased rather than impaired.
Oil—Not Coal
The coast steamers of the C.P.R.
are being converted into oil burners.
The Princess May has already been
equipped and the system is now being installed in the Princess Charlotte. The Princess Victoria will be
next.
Aerial Buildings
A regulation to restrict the height
of skyscrapers in Vancouver has met
with considerable opposition, and is
found to be practically unworkable.

Eastern Tobacco
The tobacco industry is becoming
the most important in Essex County,
Ont. Many prominent farmers are
cultivating the fragrant leaf and a
number in South Essex have closed a
contract with a large company, agreeing to deliver 2,000,000 pounds, if the
crops continue good.
New Blood
The experiment of introducing new
blood among pheasants of the Lower
Mainland has been so successful that
the government is considering putting pheasants of the Mongolian variety out in the Lower Okanagan
and also near Creston, where it is
believed that the climate is mild
enough.
Canada's Building Total
The report covering the building
totals of Canadian cities for 1910

An Innovation
A regular automobile stage service
between Kamloops, Merritt and
Princeton with headquarters at the
Merritt hotel, will be inaugurated as
soon as the snow disappears this
spring. The trip from Kamloops to
Merritt will take five hours including
all stops at intermediate points. To
Princeton, via Aspen Grove, the trip
from Merritt will be made in six
hours southbound and five hours
northbound. Four large automobiles
from 40 to 90 horse power, will make
up the equipment for the service.
University Chancellor Re-Elected
Hon. Justice Stewart has again been

since the inauguration of the university and this year was elected by acclamation for a further perior of four
years. There are 10 vacancies to be
filled,on the senate for which 16 are
standing.   Elections close dn March 8.

You'll Like Our Smart Beds
NRMrui
Styles are Right-Down=to=the»lVUnute and the Price is Right«Certainly see Present Special Exhibition
Just because the bed is made of iron—or brass—don't imagine it is "strong as iron"; like the chain, it is no stronger than its weakest link, and in
many metal beds there is a weak link. With very little use and moving around in the bedroom soon shakes some beds to pieces. Therefore it is advisable to buy the beds of quality, the kind that won't fall to pieces, the kind that have not some defects of construction carefully covered over with enamel.
Our beds, every one of them, we guarantee against defects of materials or construction. You will find that it pays to buy the bed with a guarantee. We
have an exhibit on our fourth floor at present that will make others "go some" to equal it.   Don't miss it.
IRON BEDS START AT $3.00
It isn't much to pay for an iron bed—■
$3.00—but it represents the starting point of
our prices in full sixe, iron beds. From this
figure up you have a large choice in the
matter of design and prices, and every bed
is made of the best material and finished in
the best manner possible. The enamels are
of superior quality and are put on as only
the leading factories can. This being the
quality store, we only buy from the leading-
factories. By all means come in and see
this showing of iron beds.

CRIBS POR THE CHILDREN-Prices from $8.00
The children ought to have a safe and comfortable bed, and there is nothing better than one of
these metal cribs of ours. They are built with a
special view to safety, comfort and service. They
have many special features, such as sliding and drop
sides, lots of rods so close together that the little
one cannot crawl through, some with non-rustable
springs, etc. We have them in enamelled iron, iron
and brass. A splendid variety to select from.
Prices range from $18.00 to $8.00. We have also
a very large choice of mattresses here, every good
style, at prices that are right. We will also make
them to your order if you desire.

The choicest productions of the best British. Canadian and United States makers of

TROPICAL TRIFLES—XVI.
(By Onlooker)
There havc been several notable
libel cases of late in all of which the
slandered persons received redress.
Thc most prominent case, of course,
was thc settling once for all the disgraceful fiction concerning His Majesty King George V. of England.
That officious little paper "John Bull"
was called to order for fictitious romances about the movements of Miss
Knollys. and soon after, a lady of title in London society, was granted
compensation and re-establishment in
the good graces of court after having suffered many undeserved humiliations thc result of pure maliciousness on the part of the last persons
who should have slandered her.
In olden days a sword thrust or a
knock on thc head was the prevailing
method of settling personal differences, but in modern times protection
in such cases is afforded by the law
courts, always provided the evidence
is sufficiently positive. Freedom of
speech is a 'very excellent thing, but
like other privileges it is often abused. Afternoon tea parties at which
the only entertainment provided is
tea and talk ought to bc responsible
for tiie tingling of a great many people's ears, though plenty of good
plain abuse takes place in circles
I (present Councils always accepted)
where the popular beverage s not always tea. The habit of "knocking"
is common, and as somebody remarked, "there seems to bc something
wrong with everybody if the complaints of their friends will hold water." One person is too rich, another
too poor; one too stupid, another too
clever; and as for any new commercial enterprise or a new building, it
is hopelessly condemned ere it is
scarcely begun. Thc salubrious climate of this coast apparently has a
beneficial effect on thc temper, for the
"knocker" is generally condoned with
the excuse "hc doesn't mean anything," and the knocked one is obliged to content himself with the slight
consolation and thc reflection that
"every dog has his day."
Talking of dogs, some English fox
hounds   are   going     to    emigrate   to
Victoria  under  thc  auspices    of  the
Hunt  Club.     Fox   hounds   no  doubt
havc  conservative  ideas  as  all   Eng-
, lish  bred animals ought, and the cf-
| forts of  the   Hunt   Club    to    imbue
I- th cm with thc right ideas for getting
along in  this country  will bc watch-
; cd with  interest by  those who have
had some experience of fox hunting
Why  not  import  some  bloodhounds
from  the States and chase smuggled
Chinamen   over   the   fruit     farms   of
British   Columbia    to    the    tunc  of
Yankee  Doodle?
The  terrible  famine  in  China  has
evoked  much   sympathy  for  the  un
fortunate humanity in the stricken
region. Chinese ill this country arc
! beginning to realize the urgent need
] of help for thc starving multitudes in
spite of the theory of a local Chinaman that "God kill all bad Chinamen, only good Chinamen left, make
heap good country." A wise prelate
of thc English Church suggests that
the least we can do is to help liberally our brethren in distress. Presumably, hc means bodily help, as
spiritual help via missionaries would
fail to bc acceptable under the circumstances wc should think, and
might bc rather dangerous for the
missionaries.

of Agriculture of the Federal Government, stales that there is practically
only one centre of tobacco culture iu
British Columbia, viz.. thc Okanagan
Valley, where, though the industry
has only been in existence ten years,
rapid development has been made.
Mr. Charlan anticipates that in the
near future tobacco culture will'be
one of the main crops throughout
the Province wherever good agricultural lands of sufficient size arc to bc
found. The pamphlet which is full
of detailed information with regard
to tobacco growing will bc sent free

THE WEEK, SATUKDAY. FEBRUARY 18, 1911
One of the prettiest and most popular weddings took place on Wednesday, January 25th. at Christ Church
Cathedral, between Miss Daisy Clarissa Barnard, eldest niece of Miss
Mauley and Mr. Dauren.ce Herbert
Brett-Plummer, of this city, only son
of Mr. William Brett-Plummer, of
London, England; the Right Reverend

Cathedral on the arm of Mr. Arthur
C. Futcher and attended by her
bridesmaids, Miss Kathleen Barnard
and Miss Mary Boggs.
Thc service was fully choral, and
thc organist Mr. Pauline. The
church was prettily decorated^ by
friends of the bride, who was given
away by her aunt, Miss Manley. The
bride looked charming in an exquisite gown of heavy cream satin, with
an overdress of hand-embroidered net
caught up with pearl ornaments, with
bolero of Irish crochet lace, falling
gracefully from the shoulders onto
the train. Her veil was caught up
with pearls and oragne blossoms and
she carried a shower bouquet of
cream bridal roses; her only ornaments wcre an antique pearl necklace brooch and earrings, family
heirlooms. The bridesmaids looked
pretty in gowns of pink duchesse
with overdress of ninon, caught up
with silver ornaments; their headdress being pretty mob caps of old
Irish lace trimmed with pink satin
and rose buds. Miss Manley wore a
beautiful gown of reseda green satin
with heavy silk overdress trimmed
with handsome oriental embroidery
and a black picture hat with willow
plumes. The best man was Dr. Herbert A. Brown, and the ushers, Mr.
Arthur Futcher and Mr. Douglas
Angus. While the bridal party were
signing the register, Mrs. Charles E.
Wilson sang charmingly "Song of
Thanksgiving."
A reception was held later at the
.residence of Miss Manley, "Kent-
holme," Harbinger Avenue. The
house was beautifully decorated with

No Trouble to Cook
If you own a gas range. Everyone who has cooked with gas realizes its many advantages over other
fuel. Gas is absolutely cleanly, convenient and satisfactory. Gas heat can be regulated to a certainty.
A quick oven and a slow boiling fire may be had at the same time. For broiling a gas range has no
equal.   It is by cleanliness and economy that gas has won such a host of friends.
Free Demonstration Here by Miss  Hall

large baking and broiling oven, warming closet overhead, four boiling rims and a simmerer; also large tray underneath to stand platters upon.
Easy terms of payment if desired.   Price only $65.00.

MUSIC AND THE STAGE
(Continued from Page 3)
el. That the moving pictures have
come to stay is all assured fact;
doubtless their development is still
in its infancy; it is therefore the more
a matter of congratulation that so
many films of an educational turn are
being exhibited, as for instance, "At
Sea under Naval Colours," which appeared at the Crystal this week.
MOMUS.
New Grand Theatre
The Sullivan and Considine road
chow, the biggest vaudeville event
ever staged in Victoria is due at the
Grand on Monday to fill the bill for
the week. The inimitable Whitehead and Grierson; David Schooler,
the boy Paderewski; John Hamilton,
whose pictures are such as few artists can paint; the renowned strong
man, Bobby Pandur, and his brother
re billed. The fifth act from the road
show is Murray and Hamilton, who
will present "Jerry, the Janitor," an
inimitable comedy played by two of
vaudeville's most successful comedians, who make their debut this tour.
The bill is ah Orpheum circuit bill,
every act being in the class of Ai
vaudeville, having been selected by
Mr. Considine himself on his last
European trip specially for the famous road shows of the circuit.
The Great Comedy Hit "Seven Days"
She was the sort of girl any fellow
would look at twice, even on Broadway, where the crop of peaches never
suffers a blight, so when she came out
between the acts and asked where she
could find a telephone the man in
charge broke a rule and conducted her
to the one in the box office. Then,
of course he withdrew while she used
the 'phone, but he cou'dn't help overhearing some of her talk.
There was the usual overture of
"Hello's" and "is that you?" and
then:
"I'm in New York—yes—Perfectly
fine!—I'm    at    the    matinee—'Seven
Days' at the Astor Theatre—hello—
—hello—central, please don't disconnect—hello—yes, 'Seven Days'—Just
dandy! Wish you were here with mc
to enjoy it; you'd love it. Really I've
never laughed so in my life. It's
perfectly splendid, the best I've ever
seen. I've laughed till my hair's
come down. What? No. I'm not presentable—O, she's with me and as
crazy about it as I am. You were?
0, you've seen it then. Isn't it just
the best ever?"
A lot more, ancl then:
"I'll be up Saturday.   Give my love
to  Good bye, I must go in; the
next act will be starting and I simply
mustn't miss any of it . Good bye—
ves, Saturday—good bye."
Her message sent, she thanked the
man incharge sweetly, and he had
hardly recovered from his bow of
acknowledgement when the regular
box office fellow interrupted with:
"Say, that was a long distance
'phone and she didn't pay for it."
"That so?" returned the other, "let's
find out about it,' and hc called up
long distance,
"Newburg—forty and ten—seven
minutes—eighty cents," was the information.
"Oh, well," said the man in charge,
"that boost for 'Seven Days' was
worth eighty cents. Charge it to extra advertising. Go to Victoria Theatre Monday, Feb. 20, and see if you
don't agree with the pretty girl that
"Seven Days" is thc best ever.
"A Gentleman from Mississippi"
"A Gentleman from Mississippi,"
the brightest and breeziest comedy
given to the American stage in the
past twenty years, and which is now
in its third year of success, will bc
the attraction at the Victoria Theatre Tuesday, Feb. 21, Wm. A. Brady
who has made many notable productions, among others "Thc Man of the
Hour" and "Way Down East," is the
producer of "A Gentleman from Mississippi." There is a real plot to this
comedy—a real story, told ill a crisp,
brisk, biting style.   William Langdon
is sent to the United States Senate
by the people of Mississippi who love
him for his bluff honesty and sincer-
, ity, and by the "trust interests," who
I imagine he is so ignorant of procedure that he can be bamboozled into
I anything they desire. When he ar-
j rives in Washington he meets a news-
| paper correspondent, a bright young
fellow and thoroughly up to date,
whom he engages as his private secretary, trusting his young advisor to
keep him out of the hands of the
Senate sharps. The boy guides the
old man through the early days of
thc session and points his conduct
when it becomes necessary for him to
combat a gang of Senators who attempt to involve the old Mississippian
in a shady land deal. The fight on
this bill so develops that the old man's
son and daughter become involved
through the trickery of a congressman from his own State, and the
Senator is compelled to risk disgracing his children if he continues the
light. But he finds a way out, defeats the purpose of the crooked
Senators, saves the family name and
fortune and proves himself the biggest man of them all.
ANOTHER OPINION
The Portland, Me., "Express" of
the 30th January last contains an especially interesting and significant reference to the revised programme for
the carrying forward of 'the anti-
liquor crusade in that State—for the
past half-century committed to prohibition by provision in its constitution. That prohibitory legislation has
not only failed to prohibit is now
freely conceded: also that the theoretical operation of the prohibition law
has developed hypocrisy, contempt of
law, and a dangerous increase of drug
using. Now the Maine prohibitionists
arc coming back to thc policy of
practicality and—led by C. L. Connor,
Emerson Doughty, Rev. John Collins
and Franklin .illings—are vigorously advocating the adoption of high li
cense and strict control as thc best
method at command for the effectual
regulation of the liquor traffic. The
lesson herein contained is one which
may with advantage be noted by thc
active champions in this province of
a direct reversal of the course now
advocated by their confreres in Maine
whose course is based on dearly
bought experience.

CORRESPONDENCE
Bad Language
To  the  Editor The  Week.
Sir,— 1 have read with much appreciation "Lounger's" remarks in
your last issue on thc use of bad language by children. This habit is
horrible and nothing can disgrace the
youth of thc country more than its
indulgence. But the children are hardly to blame in thc matter. It is a
trait of human nature that the boy
wants to bc a man. This trait is exemplified when the boy sticks a filthy
cigarette into his mouth. He docs not
do this because smoking gives him
any pleasure. It is simply because in
his infantile philosophy hc thinks it
is manly. His use of bad language is
partly owing to tin's wish and partly
instinctive imitation. It is unfortunately the habit of most men in Ihis
country to habitually make use of
obscene and profane expressions, especially two words both beginning
with a B, one a noun and the other
an adjective, are most commonly
used, and used too by men who from
their position and education ought to
be ashamed of themselves. They are
quite aware of the beastliness of their
habit, because they seldom give way
to it in the presence of women. There
is uo necessity for it because our
magnificent language contains plenty
of words to express any feeling that
may arise. The habit is simply beastly and men who indulge in it must
not blame others if they refuse to
allow them the prefix of gentle. Surely your remedy of a small fine, self-
inflicted, might be introduced with
benefit, the proceeds going to some
charity, and the womenfolk might
bring their powerful influence to bear
by refusing their gracious and welcome smiles to men who arc known
to use blasphemous or obscene language.
