"No policy will be satisfactory   to   the   people of British
| Columbia which does not include a  substantial   and  prompt
Victoria's Day
(IT Victoria Day, but Victoria's Day, when for the first time
llic Capital of British Columbia bids fair to live up to its
titlo in every respect. Tlio meeting of tho Board of Trade
Tuesday was without doubt tho most important gathering in the
listen' of tho city, not; only by reason of its representative character,
it more particularly because it, chronicled the fulfilment of a policy
liich wben carried out will make Victoria tho most important port
t the I'acilie Coast. It is difficult to speak of the prospects without
ipoaring to exaggerate. The splendid success which attended the
ission of Capt. Logan and Mr.' II. B. Thomson to Ottawa was
nphiitically recognized by the ovation accorded to them, and the
soluliou of thanks which was inscribed on the minute book.  But it
when ono contemplates their report that it. is possible to realize that
ir Victoria the hour has struck. In addition to the breakwater to
isl upwards of $2,000,(1(10, whicli will afford adequate protection to
ie Inner and Outer Harbours, and on which construction is already
rocoeding, the delegation were able to report thc addition of two im-
101180 piers, each a thousand foot long, and tho immediate grant of
ii adequate appropriation to cover all the work whicli will be done
lis year. Tho two piers will cost $3,000,000, and the whole of this,
igethor with the $2,000,000 for the breakwater, will ho expended
ilhin Iwo years from date. In the fall of this year work will commence on a huge dock wall nearly a mile in length to encircle the
onghees Reserve.    This wall will form the outer abutment of a
nliiiuous wharf, and will reclaim nearly thirty acres of land. With-
it auy subsidiary work the wall will cost $2,000,000.   The estimate
the engineers for harbour dredging and rock blasting in the Inner
arbour and approaches runs to $2,000,000, which will he spread
er lour or live years. It is not. likely that tho requirements of the
irt will be met even when Ihis stupendous work is completed, and
lie Week anticipates that as soon as the Harbour Commission is
ipointed, it will propose the absorption of the Rithet wharves and
lieir amalgamation in a larger scheme which will continue ft range
concrete piers from those now agreed to be constructed to the edge
' the channel leading to the Inner Harbour. This brief survey takes
•guizauce only of what may lie called marine work, but it predicates
great port at, Vietoria, and shows that not only are the Board of
rude and its energetic, President working in the best interests of tho
tv in pushing these projects, but also that the Government is alive to
e requirements of the situation, and is prepared to moot them in a
nerous manner. On the principle of "honour to whom honour is
ic," The Week feels sure that tho public will recognize the splendid
rviccs of Mr. G. 11. Barnard, our member, who has been tbe mov-
g inlluence iu impressing the Government witli tho necessity of
iicse works; then, too, Mr. R. G, Green and Mr, F. II. Shepherd,
hn have loyally supported him, and last, but not least, the very oap-
ile delegation iu Oapt. Logan and Mr. II. B. Thomson, who, by
eir representations have been able to procure the immediate addi-
iii to the Government programme of works involving an expenditure
$8,000,000, with an adequate appropriation to start them.   This
indeed Victoria's Day.
71 Dry Dock
IN EVERAL weeks ago the Colonist announced in a very unosten-
) lat ions manner that it had received official information of the
intention of tho Government to build a dry dock at Esquimalt.
lie reason that, so little was said about it is now apparent. The
L dock is a part of the permanent, policy, which has not yet been
lought down, and which cannot he officially announced before the
liorgeney resolutions have been finnlly dealt with. It is possible
lit, this is of even more moment to Victoria than tho breakwater and
Ipi's, because it means, first of all, that in outlining his permanent
Ival policy Mr. Borden will gratify the dearest wish of tho people of
litlsh Columbia in establishing n dry clock at Esquimalt. It means
Irther that Esquimalt will once more become a naval base from
liich Cftnada will ultimately operate a fleet for the protection of her
licific shores and probably co-operate with the other Dominions in
licific waters. And it means finally that a shipbuilding industry on
Ilnrce scale will lie established at Esquimalt, and that in its yards
lunula will ono day construct Dreadnanghts. All this will take time;
Irtainlv many years. But everything must have a beginning, and
beginning could he more propitious than that which secures the *
Irgest dry dock in the world, capable of accommodating the largest
inmsliip in the world.   As to shipbuilding, in which we are deeply
interested on all grounds, The Week cai) only reiterate what it saiil
in a recent issue, that in the enterprise of the Messrs. Bullen we already have the nucleus of a shipbuilding industry which only needs
developing along the sound business lines on whicli it has been created, to become one of the recognized shipbuilding yards of the Empire, This cannot bo done without Government assistance. The
Board of Trade and the local Members should at an early date turn
their attention to the subject of Government aid either in the manner
recommended by the Shipbuilding Association or in some other manner which may be devised to meet the special circumstances of the
case, not forgetting that the industrial conditions of the West are entirely different from thoso of the East.
The Woman Movement
THE most; exacting feminist can hardly deny that at the present
moment woman occupies tho stage, with all tho limelight
turned on. This is due to the prominence given to Iheir sex
by the vagaries of the suffragettes, and perhaps still more to the universality of the woman movement. In ono way or another thp women
of all civilized countries are organizing to secure legislation which
lhey believe will remedy many of the ills under which they suffer and
establish them in the position to wliieh they consider they aro entitled
in tho direction of human affairs. One of the most noted and able of
women advocates of this movement is Ellen Rev, the great Swedish
writer.    She has a   formidable   ancestry,   being   descended   from

(From a Snap-shop Taken  During  His
Recent Visit to Victoria.)
Rousseau j she has hnd n brilliant education, ami, lo wind up, was a
disciple of Ibsen nml Bjornson. Lattorly she bus held the Professorship of History nt the University of Stockholm. George Brandes, an
undoubted authority, snys she is nn orator, but the world knows her
best us a writer. She has published hull' u dozen books, all dealing
wilh the problems of life, and especially with the position, the inlluence and the future of women. Her latest, "The Woman Movement,''
is the mosl important one. She has a creed to which not. every womnn
will subscribe; she believes thai all adult life should be adjusted to
ibe interests of the unborn, and ihat a modern woman, equal to man,
willing to share with him the generation and education of children
as her main vocation is doubly rare. She says tbat tho ordinary
feminist fears domestic life, and yet woman's rule of the home was iu
its origin a strength and will be in the future a security. She argues
that the Middle Ages, by offering to woman a choice between domestic
life nnd the cloister, set. a clear dividing line between lhe women who
should and should nol marry. But the present knows no such dividing line, and today woman tends more towards a compulsory domestic
service, akin to the oavc-keoping of the primitive man, than to the
home ruling of the "Middle Ages. She believes that the most rational,
common-sense marriage is the one most conformable lo Ibe literal
doctrine of Luther, which was utilitarian. She believes Ihnl Iwo
causes have led to the present unrest—competitive industry, which
has battened on tbe superfluity of woman, and lhe fact that owing to
the great industrial prosperity of the world those who hnve been able
to choose a way of life have begun to demand more of their husbands
than the frequent pains of motherhood and the unrelieved drudaen
of child-rearing.    She is an advanced thinker, as will lx; seen from
the foregoing, and one who reaches down to fundamentals. Naturally
her books have received much criticism, mainly because of what may
bo regarded as her lax opinions on the subject of marriage. She
seems, however, to forget that if the ideal of love be high enough, and
tho mutual sympathy of the right kind, the indissoluble nature of
marriage is guaranteed and in the absence of these disaster is inevitable. Not nil the laws in the universe can dissolve a real union nor
get permanent good out of a disastrous one. The thing lies not in
Jaw but in life, and she is absolutely right, when she liases marriage
upon the child. Her books are being widely read; tbey deserve, however, even more attention than they are receiving. They are written
with intelligence; they bear the murks of culture, and the ideals are
noble! Of the many women who have undertaken to write ou what
may be regarded as the forward movement, few, if any, have shown
the ability and grasp of Ellen Key.
'   Navy League Platform
r ■ 1 HE criticism of the Victoria Times on the Navy League plut-
5 form as published in its issue of April 28th, is not character-
-*- ized by that spirit of fairness with which tho Times ought to
bo able to criticize the manifesto of a nnu-partizan organization
which bas at one time or another endorsed certain features of the
naval policy both of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. R. L. Borden,
It is not necessary to remind tbe Times that the Navy League is composed of, and officered by, men prominent in both political parties.;
and that no taint of partizonship has hitherto attached to any of its
leaders. To say that "its tentative declaration of political independence is obviously weakened by its reference to graving docks, in view
of the public announcement sonic weeks ago that the Government,
proposed to establish one at Esquimalt." is surely wide of the mark.
The League bas always boon in favour of and has always advocated a
graving dock and a naval base at Esquimalt. Tbe reason that the
item still stands in its programme is surely more obvious than the
criticism of the Times. It will stand there until there is au official
announcement with the necessary appropriation. If the Times is
nimble tn see the connection between this item of the League's policy
and the establishment of ship-building, it is not very skilled in following logical sequences. The reservation of the right lo criticize appears to have been even more necessary than the committee of tbe
League thought when inserting it in their programme, for from the
line of criticism adopted by the Times it is perfectly clear that if it
had nol, been included the Times would have argued that the League
bad endorsed not only the present proposals of Mr. Borden, but his
permanent policy in advance. The wisdom of their course is made
manifest; they approve of what they know; they do not propose to
take a leap in the dark and approve iu advance of what they may
anticipate. If tllis course does not maintain their "political independence," it would be interesting for the Times to specify what
Panama Canal Tolls
AS expected tbe American Senate has postponed until December
next the consideration of the proposed resolutions dealing
with the Panama Canal tolls. .Inst how far tbis is a concession to public sentiment it is impossible to tell; at tbe same time
moderate men will lie inclined to acclaim it, as a victory for thc sober
sense of the American people. It looks as if once more the American Senate has been indulging in the national game of bluff, and
has taken the first step toward crawling down. Not a single man of
real eminence and worth has dared to support the policy enunciated
in the resolutions. The leading newspapers of both parties huve condemned them, and if tbe President has not done so bc bas at, least
refrained from the utterance of a single word which could be construed as approval. The postponement cannot but be regarded as
favourable and as indicating thai wiser councils may yet prevail.
The honourable and intelligent stand taken by ex-Secretary Boot
represents the opinion of the thinking men of tbe United States, and
il; is hard lo believe tbat, it will nol ultimately prevail. Just what is
thought of Senator Chamberlain's Bill to abrogate the lluy-Paunce-
forle and Clayton-Rulwor Treaties is well illustrated in an article in
a recent issue of the Boston Transcript which says that "such a
course would elevate the American nation from the role of pickpockets to that, of highwaymen."
Minting in Canada
WHEN the lion. \V. T. While. Minister of Finance, moved
the resolution on Monday last to increase tbe grant for
lhe maintenance of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint
from $75,000 to a sum not exceeding $110,00(1, ho touched on a
subject whicii lies very near to the heart of all loyal Canadians; that,
is, the more general use of a Canadian currency. Subsequent debate
developed the fact that the bulk of our Vukoli gold is exported to
the Stales instend of being retained for minting in this country, dust,
how this can bn prevented is mil apparent, but lhe Government has
tnken one step in lhe right direction by arranging for free assays

Evelyn Wrench
THERE are in this world at least 107,910 persons who are
interested in the movements and doings of Mr. Evelyn
Wrench, as this constitutes the membership in the various
Over-Seas Clubs. Their special interest centres around his work in
_\rew Zealand, where he has been traveling for several weeks, and
holding a series of meetings whicii have been an inspiration to the
splendid organization of which he is the acknowledged head. The
Mayor of Wellington, who presided at one of his meetings, struck the
key-note of the organization when he said that it was designed to
create a strong National and Imperial sentiment throughout the
country. At the Southern Cross the most prominent public men
associate themselves with the work, and take an active interest in it.
Among the suggestions adopted at tho Wellington meeting was the
necessity for celebrating Empire Day and Trafalgar Day; the
establishment of a ''Welcome Hall;" the matter of school teachers inculcating Imperial ideas in the school children. The strength of tbe
movement in Kew Zealand may be gathered from the fact that the
membership of the Dunedin branch has reached 1850, and perhaps
the most impressive circumstance in connection with the convention
at Wellington was that delegates attended from such widely scattered
cities as Wellington, Auckland, Marton, Hunterville, Fielding, Palm-
erston, Masterton and Gisborne. It is difficult to speak with modera-
i ion of .the devotion and the splendid services which Jir. Wrench is
rendering to a great Imperial movement. It is slowly but surely
becoming universal among English speaking peoples, and while it
has had to contend with much ill-natured, opposition from those wdio
did not understand its mission, it lias now passed the stage when
hostility can have any effect but to spur the promoters to greater
efforts. Mr. Wrench in addition to being a brilliant organizer, possesses a charming personality, and it is safe to sa}' that no worldwide movement has ever been initiated by a more genial and lovable
man. It would lie unfair at any time to speak of the work of Mr.
Wrench to the Over-Seas Club without mentioning his sister, who
accompanies him everywhere, shares bis labours, looks after bis
health, and is at least his equal as a speaker and organizer. The
Week extends its heartiest congratulations to Mr. ancl Miss Wrench
on the successful conclusion of their tour in Now Zealand.
Gh for the Rarity!
REV. Dr. George Chalmers Richmond, nf St. John's Episcopal
Church,  Philadelphia, recently preached a sermon entitled
"Has J. Pierpont Morgan Gone to Heaven?   If Xot, Why
Not?"   A fair paraphrase on this blasphemous query would be "Will
Dr. Richmond go to hell?   If not, why not?*'   To ask this question
wnuld not involve the breach of good manners involved in the question asked by the doctor, because the plea of  'de mortuis nil nisi
boinim" does not apply.   Tbe incident would not be worth comment
but for two reasons, the first that any presumably sane man with the
responsibilties of a ministerial position on his shoulders should be
found capable of degrading his sacred calling to such a degree, and
next that uny congregation should lie found in a civilized country
to tolerate such an outrageous -breach of all the proprieties by tlieir
"spiritual pastor and master."   Perhaps it is a mistake to speak of
Dr. Richmond as intelligent when one reads that the grounds on
which he thought that; Mr. Morgan's entrance into Heaven was doubtful were  that "he was more interested in art than iu missionary
work," and that "he had jeopardized his chances because ho did not
believe in labour unions."   Rut whatever may be thought; of his intelligence,   it   is   n perfectly easy matter to determine how much
"Christian charity" goes to his make-up, for he concluded his discourse by referring to the runioui' that Mr. Morgan's death was caused
by the strain of the Pujo examination into the monetary conditions
in the United Slates, and added that "if this rumour is true I hope
more of his type will Ix; called to testify."   And yet some people are
unable to understand why the Church is losing its hold ou the world.
The Editorial "We"
THE Colonist is of opinion that it is hopeless In attempt to banish the editorial "we." This remark is made apropos of a new
law enacted in Australia requiring editorial articles on
political subjects al election times In be signed by the writer. The
Colonist opines that il will prove no mnre successful in Australia ihaii
it did in California, where il wns attempted nbout twenty years ago,
and where the law was laughed off the Statute Rook. The subject does
nol seem lo be one which need disturb lhe comity nf nations, and yet,
from the frequency with which il crops up, il may be considered to
possess nt lensl a tinge nf perennial interest. Tbe Colonist favours lhe
use nf the editorial "we." beeause nf the weight ils impersonality
carries. The Week favours lhe signing nf its editorials lest lhey
sliniild enrry inn much weight. The method nf lhe Colonist may In* n
gain; thnl of the Week u loss, but there is nothing inure oiubarrnssing
lliiiu I'm' :i inan in be suspected nf being greater than he really is:
sooner nr Inter his individuality is sure tn be revealed. There nre
mine people who think ihnl il does not make tlie slightest difference
whether the editorial "we" is used fir not, because nowadays nobody
reads editorials, lie thnl as il mny, it is difficult to resist the conclusion thai the greal editorial "we" bus failed to impress the lawmakers of Australia, The point raised is a knotty one; il would be
difficult to settle il fo the satisfaction of all parties, and in view of the
Balkan war. lhe California Anti-Japanese legislation, nnd the opening
of llie baseball season, it may sland over for a week.
The Union Club
TIME was nol so long ngo when the Piiioii Club was a snuggling institution, with a'sparse membership and a worried
finance committee. That condition passed some years ago,
nnd of bile it has almost revelled in luxury, al any rale to the extent
of hnving a full membership list nnd being able for tlie first lime In
exercise the prerogative nf blackballing those who are nol considered
eligible for membership. This is Ibe badge of prosperity, for nn in-
slilnlion can afford to limit ils membership when its finances are low.
It was natural thnl with sueh growth, both iu wealth and popularity
as has come to the club recently, it. should seek mm niiinindiniis nnd
imposing quarters, and next week marks the transfer of the Club and
nil its belongings elsewhere. The belongings du not go with llle Club,
fnr as an entity lhe hitter takes possession of lhe bountiful new block
which hns been erected for its accommodation on the south-east corner
of Gordou and Humboldt Street. Here for many years to come the
lenders of Victoria will foregather. Here the financial schemes of
the future will be hatched; great enterprises will be bruited; pos*
sibly at times fulininations will be launched, as has been the case in
the past. At any rate the Union Club will continue to he the resort
of Victoria's merchant princes, professional men, retired army and
naval officers, and the temporary home of all men of note who have
to be made welcome to our city. It is rumoured that a project near
lo the heart of the members, but one for which the accommodation of
ihe old club-house was not considered suitable, will be a conspicuous
feature in the future programme—the weekly entertainment of their
lady friends. So far the ladies have only been entertained once a
year, at the Club ball; but afternoon tea once a week is the objective,
and the beautiful rooms of the new building will enable this departure
to be made. As to the belongings of the Club; these, alas, have served
their day, not because they are not intrinsically valuable enough to
adorn a more sumptuous home, but because they do not fit. in wilh the
colour scheme. They are therefore to come under the hammer, and
the thousands of Victorians who will desire to possess a relic of such
a unique institution ns the Union Club will have an opportunity of
gratifying their wish. In this way thc memory of the Club will bc
perpetuated in many Victoria homes.
The Horse Show
IT is the general opinion that the Horse Show which was opened
on Thursday is the best yet seen in Victoria. This is true if one
takes into account the number of entries, tbe quality of the
horses and the social interest evinced. With such well-known exhibitors as Count Roaldes, Mr. J. D. Farrell, Mr. Andrew Laidlaw and
Col. A. D. McRae, it could not hut be that some of the best horse flesh
in the West would be under inspection, and so the result proved.
Society was represented by all its recognized lenders and tlie general
public attended in larger numbers than ever before. The competitions have been keen, and not tlie least pleasing feature was the
marked manner in which interest has been developed in the "City
Delivery" competition. On the opening night tliere were over twenty
vehicles of this class in the ring, wdiich establishes a record in
America. It is almost invidious to single out names, but it would be
unfair not to comment ou the success of Mr. McAllister, of the Royal
Dairy, who has been a regular exhibitor for some time past, each year
bringing a better team, and this time making a clean sweep, to the
great delight of the spectators. Never was the educational influence
of horse shows better demonstrated than on the present occasion, and
great credit is due to Mr. Sangster, tlie Secretary, and the Committee
of management who have worked so assiduously to raise the Victoria
Horse Show to its present proud position among the most attractive
and lieneficial functions of British Columbia.
Dominion Match eompany
A VEAR or so ago The Week wrote in commendation of the
Dominion Match Company, whose agents were at that time
selling stock in Victoria. It did so after a careful investigation of tbe patents and machinery of the Company, and was convinced that tlie enterprise was a sound one, which only needed careful management to render it; a pronounced success. There has been
considerable delay in assembling the machinery and commencing
operations. The AVeek has pleasure in announcing that at the present moment; tbe large factory which has been erected at Sapperlon
is in operation, and that after the initial difficulties of running the
machinery have heen overcome, and tliis always lakes a few weeks, it
will he turning out the best matches made in Canada to the full capacity of the plant. According tn the opinion of those competent in
speak, the concern is a mechanical success; it can hardly fail to become a commercial success, because the demand for au nrlicle of this
class is practically unlimited, and as the amount of labour required
is very slight, nearly everything being done by machinery, there is
no reason why a Western matchmaking enterprise should not dominate the Western market. It is all a question of management, and
that is to a large extent in the hands of the shareholders. In the opinion of The Week the directors should organize n trip from Victoria
for the benefit of tho mnny shareholders who reside here, and wdio
would, no doubt, be glad to have an opportunity of inspecting their

Englishwomen in Canada who have
made Iheir mark and whose work is
beginning lo bc recognized. Among
Ihese Miss Dorothy Davis is one of
the most conspicuous. Miss Davis is
an English lady, thc daughter of a
clergyman, a graduate and a writer of
no mean reputation. Her nrlieles have
appeared in lhe leading English mnga-
zines and her poems have attracted
considerable attention and have been
compared by competent judges with
lhe work of John Davidson. Being a
woman of keen social instincts and
susceptibilities, Miss Davis allied herself a few years ago with the Suffragist Movement, nud realizing that the
mild methods adopted by such honoured pioneers of the movement as Mrs.
Josephine Buller nnd Mrs. Fawcett
were too slow, even if sure, allied herself with the "militant" branch of
the parly. But the methods of the
"militants" were too slow for Miss
Davis and she decided Ihnl it might be
possible lo achieve lhe end which the
suffragettes have in view more speedily in Canada Ihtiu in the Old Country. Arriving here two years ago,
Jliss Davis first of all devoted herself
to lhe founding of separate colonies
of English ladies in British Columbia.
The project was praised on every
hand, but not financed, and consequently had lo bc abandoned. But
Ihis in no way checked the zeal of
Miss Davis tier reform, and she started the local suffragist movement
whicli has more recently been organized as the Political Equality League.
Of this league Miss Davis is lhe Secretary and in connection wilh its
work she started nnd odils its organ,

SPEAKING recently before tin' Marconi Committee, tbo British
l lisiiioi'lliir ul tlio Exchequer made the remark that ' it is hard
if u man of fifty cannot have a house tu call his own." Here is
one ui' the fundamental ideals of the Britisli race. The assurance
tliat a man may dwell safely under his own vine and fig tree, although
venerable us to nge, is still a vigorous truth, and it may bc stated
with accuracy that one of tho major problems of our day is how to
redistribute the good things of life so that in the shuffle a little plot
of lnnd and a house may fall to the share of every man. In the evolution of things we have to revise the ethics of possession, but we cannot
destroy the instinct for it, and what is more ancient or nearer to
the human heart than the desire to possess a foot-hold on the planet?
In the First Epistle of Horace is a sketch wliieh might stand to
illustrate this principle for all time. On a sultry day Philip, a
wealthy lawyer, walks down one of the streets of Kome after a day
spent in the courts. He notices a litle dapper man who stands paring
his nails in a barber's shop. His air of self-poise and well-earned
indolence attracts the lawyer, who, on a whim, orders his slave
Demetrius to cross the street* instantly and enquire the fellow's name,
country, condition and everything about him. The slave obeys and
presently overtakes his master with the following report':—
"Menus is his inline;
Of moderate fortune, but of honest fume;
A public crier, who a thousand ways
Bustles to get, nnd then enjoys his ease.
A boon companion, 'mongst his equals known,
And the small house he lives in is his own."
Thus we see 1 liat two thousand years ago the humble arid
insignificant Menas, type for all time of those who labour, realized
the ambition whieli the Britisli Chancellor of the Exchequer describes
ns sacred. True, there is nothing new under the sun, for even the
Socialist, who thinks himself Ihe most modern of men nnd believes
that he is preaching u new crusade, never hesitates to possess his own
home. These'crusaders against property do not disdain to become
landlords, even if it be on a limited scnle.
A writer hns recently said, "There arc just two fine things open
to most of us between lhe cradle und llie grave; one is to marry and
the oilier is to acquire a home." P. G. Iliimmei'ton in his great
book, "The Intellectual Life" pointed out that the invention of rail-
wavs laid resulted in lhe return to one of the worst phases of barbarism, a noiiindic life. He wrote thai twenty yenrs ngo und since
then wo have invented lhe motor ear and the lint, and, generally
speaking, fixity of residence, which was a distinctive mark of civilization, lins become ils derision. "The other dny," lie says, "I was reminded of the existence of a family of whom I liad lost sight since
boyhood. 'Do they still live,' I nsked, 'in that jolly little stone
bouse with lhe hig waterfall filling its rooms with sound?' They did,
and 'I nsked myself whether a man ought not, before he dies, to know
something of this oak-like wny of living?"
These remarks must possess a special interest for Victorians in
this year of grace 11113. Everyone has set his heart on a little
demesne of his own, uud nearly everyone has made a first payment on
a lot. Happy is the mnn who settles on the lot, who builds, not n
house, but a home; who lays mil his garden, plants shrubs and a few
fruit trees, nnd says In himself, "this shnll lie my little eastle." For
thanks lo the laws under whieli we live and the ling whieli waves above
us, the home of a British citizen is still his ensile.
REFERRING to a reeontly published cable message in Loudon In
lhe clVerl that Hie ('. P. U. intends to
•spend $50,000,000 Ihis year iu Canada, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy sent
lin* following cablegram last Sunday;
"Since my arrival in Engla'nd, my

oontly published cubic incssiige to the

"The report enn only refer to

DAMAGE done to commercial
stands of timber in Norih
America is from $25,000,000 to $100,-
000,000 annually, according to exports who have made a study of the
question. Frpm 1880 to the present
lime, the annual loss is estimated to
be $.-)0,000,000. These figures do not
include esliinhtes of the losses sus-
luineil in the destruction of young
growth nnd forest litter, in which lies
(lie hope of future limber crops. The
burning of lhe forest litter hns the
effeot of making stream How irregular, eroding river banks and destroying the fertility of lnnd over which
useless earth is deposited by swollen
lil some yenrs. I here nre forest
fires which nssiiine the size of national
disasters. Such was the Poshtigo fire
whicii swept over an area of 1,280,000
acros in Wisconsin in 1871, utterly
ruining the country nnd bringing
death to 1,500 people. Other fires
which stand out in thc history of the
past century as examples of the ruining power of the forest's great
cnomy are: Mirnmichi fire, Maine nnd
New Brunswick, 1825; 3,000,000 acres
burned nnd 100 lives lost.
Pontine fire, Quebec, 1833; 1,600,000
ncres burned.
A fire in Michigan in 1871; 2,000,-
000 acres burned.
Michigan fire, Michigan, 1881; 1,-
000,000 ncres burned nnd 138 lives
Phillips (Iro in Wisconsin, 1,804;
100,000 acres burned, nnd 13 lives
Hinckley flre in Minnesota, 1894;
100,000 acres burned and 418 lives
Fernie  fire, British   Columbia    in
IDIIS; 04.000 ncres burned nnd 9 lives
Great Idaho lire, Idaho and Montana, in 1910; 2,000,000 ncres burned
nnd So lives lost.
Baudette fire, Minnesota and Ontario in 1910; 300,000 ncres burned,
nnd 42 lives lost.
Of recent yenrs there hns been a
remarkable change in the attitude of
the public towards these losses. Newspapers and magazines discuss questions of fire protection all the year
through, rather than in the periods of
danger exclusively. Governments nre
adopting advanced legislation, the
number of fire rangers is constantly
increasing and over sixty forest protective associations on the continent
are actively engaged in efforts to reduce the fire loss.
With half the timber wealth of
Canada within her borders and an
annual revenue from the forest which
can attain a total of at least $100,-
000,000, Britisli Columbia's interest in
■the protection of forests from fire is
almost beyond estimate. The Forest
Branch is taking nel ive measures to
place the whole Province under efficient protection, tn the end that no
such losses as have occurred in the
past in other parts of ihe country may
tnke placo here.
IN il's interesting AVestern number
lhe Toronto Globe says: "The
feature that mosl commends itself in
Western development today is the
homemaking spirit. There will bo a
flood tide and ebb in the winning of
wealth in lhe West as everywhere
else. At lhe moment tight money is
no doubt holding back many a Westerner from plunging over-deeply into
speculation. Perhaps Hie breathing
space will be nn all-round benefit. The
homemaking instinct of the Anglo-
Saxon will huve wider piny if the
business pressure eases somewhat. The
Wesl will find happiness in planting
trees, and making gardens, nud building schools antl colleges and universities, and producing a home environment so that there will be no disposition to rpgoi'd Hie country ns n temporary plnce of abode in which everyone is trying to make his pile preparatory to going back Eust or becoming
a lotus-enter beside the Pncifie.

' N "THE Al'TOCAl.," bearing date April 5th, is the following
editorial nolo on the position of tbo steering wheel, which will
bo of interest to all readers of this page.   Wo have no hesitation,
[Jierefore, in reprinting the article verbatim:—
'When any change is required which necessitates uu alteration
In the position of some of the main members of the chassis, it is ad-
fisnble to give good notice of it so that the makers may consider it
vhen setting out their new designs.    A change whicli strikes us as
ping desirable is in regard to the position of the steering wheel, not
fs angle or its height nbove the chassis, but its position laterally,
wing to tho widening of the front seats, which is now so general,
ul the titling of high side doors which enclose both tlie change-
)eed nnd brake levers in the majority of instances, it will be found
hat the driver's sent is not central with tlio steering wheel.    The
jeering is almost always placed from two to four inches too far to
lie left, i.e., too near the centre of the car.   As a matter of fact, this
jriticisni applies not only to the steering wheel, but usually to the
tttcli, brake, and throttle pedals.   It practically amounts to tllis—
(mt all tho control of the car, with the exception of the change-spee'
ear nud brake levers, is too far to the left,
ie driver has to sit sideways, and, of course,
:at is widened, the more inconvenient does this arrangement become.
"It appears to us that the difficulty lias largely developed
llin.uigli tho designers regarding the chassis from the test body toolbox
loint of view rather than from the driving sent of a finished car.
['hat is to say, as a chassis the position of the steering and pedals
Iwks, and is, perfectly correct, but, directly a front seat of only
Jeasonable width is fitted, it, is found in the majority of eases that
pn* wheel ancl pedals are too far to the left. The effect of this is not
ly uncomfortable for the driver, but also uncomfortable for his
Iompniiiun on tbe front sent, because the driver is bound to move a

'Wc  have  had   a number of complaints nbout this from our
iaders, and wo call attention to the matter publicly  so   that,   as
Inanges tire made for new models or for revising old ones, the point
my In* duly considered. The alteration is really more difficult to
arry out than many would imagine, inasmuch as the steering anil
oiiti'nl generally must bc kept within chassis width, and it must be
tni'iii' iu mind that tho modern body is much wider than tlie chassis,
ficidentally, the matter is considerably simplified by the introduc-

of depicting odd personalities. h_

Of Interest to Women
TT OW often we housekeepers say
■I-I* cordially, "Drop in any time
for luncheon. I will be glad to have
you any day." Now there are few
housekeepers, perfect though they be,
who have not at some time found
themselves in a dilemma when their
Icordinl invitations have boen accepted and the chance guests have arriv-
There are few of us who would
Ibe glad at oil times to hove visitors at
luncheon or dinner time.
Long ngo the wise housewife pro*;
!'ided for just such emergencies, and
ier pantry held a collection of foods
villi which to transform the simple
ileal inlo one both delicious and dain-
y. The unexpected guest held more
error for the one-time housewife than
'or us, as the first emergency shelf
.new but few of the many delicacies
lint Hie modern hostess may have at
Time was, for example, when salt
ndlish came only in solid pieces of
od steak that required long hours of
oaking or boiling to prepare it for
he table. Modern invention has
oiiud two delicious ways of preparing this nutritious food so that the
ousewifo may keep it on her emer-
ency shelf ready for instant use. One
these is iu shredded form. It is
I cady for lhe table in ten minutes;
lere is no soaking, no boiling and no
dor. More than that it contains
inch fond value, and a ten-cent,
incknge will be sufficient to serve five
leople. Codfish balls, creamed cod-
Ish, and codfish and eggs may all be
asily and quickly prepared.
The other way in whicii this food is
low prepared for sale in one that
ppeals to every lover of good eook-
ng. The fresh fish nre boiled,
lightly sailed and put up in ten and
fteen-ccnt cans within a few hours
fter being taken from the sea. These
oneless fish flakes may be used in
iiany ways, and as the fish requires
o cooking it is ready to use as soon
s Hie can is opened.
Another supply for thc modern
mergency shelf lies in the various
oups put up in dry, cube form. One
ube makes a cup of appetizing
ouillon. or tbey may be added to
ome simple soup or gravy, improv-
ag these greatly. Even the simplest
Ltncheon takes on company airs with
he addition of this soup. To nccom-
auy it there are tins of excellent

Ifternonn leu or luncheon sandwiches,
a cuke filler or for school lunches.
IAnd what pantry would lip oom-
otely stocked without a plum pining? Fancy having u delicious plum
idding always on hand.   These pud-
come in one, two nnd throo-
Inind lins, lhe one-pound tin making
•e  generous portions.    These pud-
ligs may be hnd at prices varying
om twenty-three cenls to forty cents
i' pound, and to accompany them is
excellent pudding sauce  (suitable
the way for any pudding) wliieh
!ines ready to servo at fifteen cents
r jar.
One New York firm, famous for
er half a century for the purity nnd
ality of their goods, make those
ddings and sauces and are also nf-
•ing tbis yenr a wonderful coin-
lation of fruits that make a delici-
: foundation for an easy nnd quick
Iiifc punch for social affairs. It is
t up in one-half pint, pint nnd
irt. jars, the quart jar milking four
iris of punch. These jars are not
lensive. Witb this fruit as a basis
nost tasty punch may be prepared
five minutes.
So  modern  shelf would  be  com-
Ite without several cans of evapor-
d milk and cream or a bottle of
lted milk tablets for the children,
'h-class stores are filled with aids
good and quick housekeeping, and
h day seems to show some article
food prepared in a new way ready
serve with but a few moments' pre-
| ation.   Once a veal loaf meant an
hour's work. Now veal, ham or beef
loaf may be had ready to heat and
serve at fifteen cents a tin, Delicious
deviled chicken at nineteen cents a
can, succotash or golden wax beans
ready to serve at thirteen cents a
can and spaghetti and cheese at fourteen cents a can are a few of these
many modern aids to the housewife.
The modem housewife not only has
sueh well-known, ready-to-serve foods
as baked beans, jars of sliced meals,
canned soups, etc., in her pantry, but
she has cake icings, and fillings in
jars, salad dressing, crystallized ginger at ten cents a jar, appetizing and
wonderfully prepared herrings at ten
and twenty-five cenls for jars and
tins, and tomato paste or strained tomato at only five cents per jar.
French mushrooms nt twenty-five
cents a glass nre kept in readiness to
make the steak into a company dish.
Luncheon cheese in picnic size jars
at fifteen cents, peanut butter at ten
cents per jar for sandwiches or soups,
salted peanuts at ten cents to change
plain salads into fancy dishes—all
these are on her shelves.
She has learned to keep gelatin on
hand for use in making a perfect
mayonnaise dressing or to beat up in
her whipped cream. She no longer
has to boil peas, beans or lentils
many hours to obtain one of these
nutritious soups. From Germany we
get them as pea, bean or lentil flour
done up in lhe quaintest packages or
rolls. These may be bad from ten
cents for a quarter-pound roll up to
thirty-five cents for a one-pound
This same firm also offers soup
squares at ten cents and consomme
cubes nt thirty-five cents per can.
With the countless kinds of good
crackers that may be bad at small expense the housewife may, at small
cost, plan several complete luncheons
or even dinners to be kept on ber shelf
for the unexpected guest.
There is one word of warning that
every housekeeper needs to take to
herself. Beware lest you depend on
your emergency shelf not in emergencies but ns an easy way of escaping work; for in case of real emergencies you are apt to find, like Old
Mother Hubbard, that the cupboard
is bare, and then the poor guest would
have none.
NOTHING shows the lack of care
sooner than shoes, and when
they are carelessly treated they retaliate by looking their ugliest. Our
footwear should always be treated
with every consideration, and tbe difference between "treed" and "un-
Ireed" shoes cannot be too much emphasized. This applies not only when
the shoes are in constant use but
when putting them away. The winter
shoes should be brushed and wiped
clean. Calfskin and other heavy
leathers should he rubbed witli mut-
lon tallow. After the grease has
soaked in lhey should be wiped off
with a piece of flannel. Kid shoes
should be rubbed with cream and
shiny leathers preserved with oil,
Each shoe should be "treed" or stuffed with newspaper, Ihen wrapped
separately in tissue paper and boxed.
The original shape of Ibe light slippers can be maintained by stuffing
thpm with cotton or tissue paper be-
fort they nre wrapped up in tissue
paper and packed away in their own
Pulling away furs with moth balls
or other disinfectants is only a delusion and a snare, for no amount of
disinfectants will kill the moth eggs
in dirty furs. To insure the safekeeping of furs they should be put
away as early as possible; but first
lhey must be thorougly cleaned, which
lakes lime and attention. The furs
lo be put away should be carefully
shaken and exposed to tlie sun and
fresh air for at least twenty-four
hours. After this comes tbe cleaning
process, nnd outdoors is the best
place for this. Every inch of the skin
should bo gone over with a coarse
nickel comb. Thc combing should be
done very gently but thoroughly and
the fur shaken from time to time. If
Ihcro nre nny larvae tliis helps to remove Ihem, nnd Ihcse should come out
enlirely wilh the dusl nnd dirt when
the furs are beaten, Do not handle
lhe furs roughly when beating or
shaking Ihem; but half an hour is not
too long to bent a small piece of fur.
Furs should never bo packed tightly
as this flattens down tlle hnir and
makes it hard to raise. Instead each
piece should bc suspended separately
in a moth-proof bag of its own. The
inside of the bag as well as Ihe fnr
should be liberally sprinkled with
(lakps of moth destroyer.
A very practical moth-proof chest
can be purchased for one dollar,
large enough to store four or five
suits or the equivalent in furs. These
oblong boxes nre made of a three-ply
liber whicli is proof against dampness
and all vermin. In the fall when the
garments aro to be worn again these
chests can be "knocked down" and
put away to bo used another season.
ALTHOUGH much has been written upon the riot of colour introduced by lhe lending Parisian dress
designers for llie forthcoming season,
one cannot help being struck by the
predominance of blnck and dark
colours, such us dull purple, tete de
negre, deep blues, und restful greens,
which figure in lhe smart tailor-mades
nnd afternoon toilettes of the present moment. White net blouses and
finely accordion pleated tulle jabots
of the same dead white are being worn
with smart tailor-mades; while deep
Robespierre collars made of white
shadow lace adorn many visiting
The Best Tailor-Mades
For afternoon wear plain charmeuse satin tailor-mades, fashioned
with slightly draped skirts, are "tbe
latest thing." All of them are worn
wilh crepe de chine blouses fashioned
wilh a new fichu-like tulle collar and
front, that imparts a becoming length
to the figure. A. favourite colour for
these blouses is citron—a pale lemon
colour witb a tone of faint green
that looks extremely well against tbe
soft white collar and jabot of the moment.
New Millinery Modes
Where millinery is concerned the
black hat, small of size and erratic of
shape, is still supreme. At the
recent Horse Show in London every
other woman wore one of these small
bats witli slightly turned up narrow
brims, poised as only a Frenchwoman
knows how to poise her hat on the
low dressed coiffure tliat is the fad
of the moment; while a touch not to
be overlooked is the addition of two
horseshoe-shaped hair pins inserted
in the hair below the curve of the upturned brim.
Most hats are now trimmed with
high upstanding black ospreys, or
feather fantasies of extraordinary
length, whicli are set bolt upright in
Hie front or al the buck of the lint.
To the latest variety of this form of
trimming has been given Hie name the
Devil's plume. Even where flowers
are employed lhe same extraordinary
upright effect is achieved, the favorite floral trimming of the moment being stiffly wired roses on long stalks,
sot upright at the front or bnck of a
semi-sailor shaped tulle hat, round
the crown of which is set a shot
satin ribbon tliat is tied in a small
flat bow, which is placed ou the edge
of the brim at the hack.
Kilted Frills
Kilted lace, tulle, or plisse frills
made in white, cream, black or the
fashionable lete de negre, adorn a
great many of the smartest hats displayed by the leading milliners in
Paris just now. These frills are laid
flatly all round lhe brim of Ibe new
sailor shape, or else set upright all
round the crown, which is wreathed
with a swirl of upstanding gourrah
that rises high at Hie back. This new
gourrah trimming is very fashionable,
for masses of white gourrah wreath
the brims of many of the black hats
of the day, imparting llie same delicate effect as does the upstanding
Evening Dress in Paris
In writing of black and while
toilettes for day wear one must not
forget to mention thnl Ibis snme
scheme of bluck nnd white is nlso to
be scon in most of the evening gowns
in Paris this season. A charming
combination of these Iwo colours is to
be noticed in a satin cliui'meusc dress
of extreme simplicity, one side of
which is made in black, and lhe olher
iu white, the two blending into an
elegant train of black and white. Tlie
bodice of this is softened by soft
white tulle which overhangs on the
short sleeves. Another feature lo be
noticed about the sleevs of most of
these smart evening gowns is that
either the tulle or bead mesh, which
covers the sleeve, hangs down over the
elbows in lhe form of two wings, giv
ing length and grace to even the most
stolid arms.

A FEW months ago Tho Week in discussing the mining industry
pointed out that agriculture and lumbering had had their turn
recently, and a very good turn at tbat, and that a mining boom
was about due. The term was not used invidiously, nor was the prediction made without some foundation. Evidence has been accumulating for some time to show that tho improved state of the metal
market was likely to produce a marked effect. That effect was already
noticed, not only in increased prospecting, but in the disposition of
mining and smelting companies to make large outlays for extensions
of their plant, and also in the taking np of old properties which have    credit balance ot $-!l!),42:i   Net

Journal for April states that while the London money market is
for the time being disinclined to consider proposals for the financing
of Canadian industrial undertakings, there is a revival of interest in
Canadian mining, for which it, is not dfficnlt, to secure capital. Tbis
is no doubt due to the successful results attending the operation of
one or two mines in thc Cobalt, district, to the substantial dividends
being distributed by British Columbia mines nnd to tbe rehabilitation of the mining industry of Canada generally.
With this revival of interest in our greatest industry comes tho
usual warning against wild-cats. It is a subject which in the discussion has been worn thread-bare and probably words are wasted on it.
Tho indiscretion of investors is the despair of men who have bona
fido properties to sell. Here in Britisli Columbia there is not a man
in touch with milling matters, who cannot reel off a long list of tbe
most worthless ventures whicli have boon easily palmed off on British
investors. It is easy to say that tho fault is their own on the principle of "caveat, emptor"; but, while that may be true, tbe fact, does
not help to re-establish the industry in the confidence of investors.
A generation must pass, and sometimes two, before the wild-cats can
bo forgotten, and, meanwhile, genuine enterprises suffer.
However, it is probable that, with a better knowledge of thc
country, with more frequent communication and with a constant
visit of prominent business men to tbe Dominion, English investors
will get closer to the facts and will beless easilyduped than heretofore.
There are far more competent mining engineers in Canada now than
ten years ago and therefore a far better opportunity for obtaining
reliable information. It must he sorrowfully admitted tbat many
of the fiascos of the past have been due to unacquaintance of English
engineers with Canadian conditions. The combination of the English and Canadian engineers would make for greater reliability and
increased security for the investor.

Furl George, Mar. 20.—Great activity is evidenced here in extensive preparations for milking Furl,
loorge the largest railway construction cnmp known in British Columbia, the centre of a mammoth de-
[•lopineiil enterprise.     Within u month approximately S,000 men will be working under the supervision
headquarters established here, busy completing the links of the Grand Trunk Paeilie Railroad, the steel
I whieh is now less than 80 miles away.
Five hundred scows are under construction between here and Tele Jaune Cnehe for distribution nf
Iilwny equipment, and thirteen gigantic steam shovel plants are being dismantled for shipment by water
wn the Fraser .River to points where tbey will be utilized in the vigorous effort being mnde lo complete
il construction into Fort George by lhe latter part of August.
Five hundred Ions of supplies are being forwarded each week for the workmen whuse activities will be
1'ected from the new headquarters whieh Messrs. Foley, Welch A; Stewnrl nnd associated contractors are
|\v establishing mi Ibe former Indian reserve adjoining lhe townsite on lho east.
The contract for clearing the reserve bas been lei lo Messrs. Foley, Welch iV- Stewart, nnd preparations
this work are being made simultaneously with lh< erection of the new headquarters, pay offices ami
I iply bases for the contractors, To handle at Fori George the payroll estimated to exceed $25,000 a dav,
1 i ti oi i ti 1 banking facilities will be necessary, and part of ihis need is expected lo be met by n new branch
the Bnnk of Ottawa.
In addition to the S,000 men, 5,000 working en.-l of Fort Qeorge nnd the remainder on westward ex-*
I sions, all engaged in Grand Trunk .Pacific construction, 2,000 other men soon will be  working soutll-

e       Vancouver. B.C. April ) , f," 1913.
The permanent business centre of Fort George will always be located
within the circle shown in the above sketch plan,(or very olose to it. If
you will examine carefully the sketch plan above', which is absolutely
oorrect and drawn to a scale of one mile to one and one-half inches, you
will understand why the land adjoining the Indian Reservation on the west,
whioh is indioated on the sketch plan as "Fort George Townsite," must be the
very centre of Fort George's permanent and best retail business property.
Fort ueorge Townsite is almost level—just enough slope for splendid
drainage—and lies seventy feet above the water level, thus being immune
from floods and overflow. On the other hand, if you will examine the
topography of the Grand Trunk Pacific property, which formerly was the
Indian Reservation, you will notioe that it is out up with sloughs, gullies
and "hog baoks." The northern part of the property through which the
railway line runs and where the divisional yards, shops, round houses,
freight houses, etc., will be located, is*principally low ground and must be
filled in before it oan be made available for any purpose. Sloughs and low
ground out up the property in other directions until the bench adjoining
the Fort George Townsite is reached.
We have endeavored to show on this drawing the exact conditions
prevailing at Fort George, without ,any intention of underestimating the
great value of the G. T. P. property whioh will be Fort George's railway
and' industrial annex. The high banks indicated opposite the Grand Trunk
Pacific property on the north side of the Nechaco River, effectually out off
access to the railway property from the great north country, and all the
great traffic from the north, including the Peace River District, must come
through Fort George Townsite. It will be noted that the Fraser and Nechaco
Rivers throw the Grand Trunk Pacific property, and adjoining property to
the south, into a peninsula. A portion of this peninsula is subject to
overflow at high water.
Any intelligent individual who has observed development in towns and
cities located on rivers, will undoubtedly remember that the best residential and business portion always seeks the high ground. The high ground is
located in Fort George Townsite, where the present development is.
In the business centre, as indicated by the circle in the sketch,
there is now the Post Office, two banks, two hotels, hospital, Board of
Trade, two churches, school, telegraph and telephone office, newspaper,
bakery and restaurants, and about twenty-five stores and business houses\
of various descriptions. To the west of the business centre is now located)
the residential portion. The inhabitants of Fort George number nearly
one thousand at this writing, April 1st, 1913. Water transportation will
open up on the Fraser and Nechaco Rivers about May lst.
The removal to Fort George of the main construction headquarters and1
pay offices of the contractors, sub-contractors, etc., who are building
the Grand Trunk Pacific Trans-continental Railway and the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway, which is now being done, looating on the property
adjoining Fort George Townsite, means a tremendous influx of population,
not only transients, but permanent residents.
There will be business openings of all kinds, work for laborers,
carpenters, bricklayers; openings for stores, saw mills, sash and door
factories, etc.
We can almost be assured that the population in and adjacent to Fort
George by October lst, If 13—six months from the present writing—will be
between five and ten thousand people.
The pay-roll will amount to at least one million dollars per month.
This money will be expended in Fort George and will mean the upbuilding of
the place. We expect that the Grand Trunk Paoific will put their property
on the market, or so much of it as they care to subdivide for townsite
purposes, some time in the Fall of 1913, but we can say with perfect
assurance that, while the Grand Trunk Pacific property is extremely
valuable for warehouse purposes, for railway terminals and industrial sites,
and the western portion for townsite purposes, we reiterate our belief that
the best and highest priced retail business and residential propertyvwill be
in the established town of Fort George--not in the railway and industrial
addition whioh^will be established or the Indian Reservation.
*  We have no hesitation1 in again assuring all property holders in
Fort George Townsite of the confirmation of our ideas on this subject.

and the Australians will be held on
May 20th, 30th and 31st. At a meeting of the Pacific Coast Cricket Association, it was decided that a representative from each playing club be
chosen to form a committee to select
the team that will oppose the players
from the land of the Southern Cross.

Australians, hns written to the local

world's greatest cricketers, and Crawford, Bardsley and Macartney are
also well known players. Among the
