The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
Probably not in all the
A Grand history of Canada since
Vindication.   Confederation   has    a
Provincial Government
received so emphatic an endorsation
of its policy as that accorded by the
electorate of British Columbia to the
McBride Administration on Saturday
last. The latest returns available
show that, out of a House of forty-
two members, twenty-six Conservatives, thirteen Liberals and three Socialists have secured seats. This
gives the Conservatives a majority of
ten over both the other parties, or
practically a quarter of the entire
number of the people's representatives elected. Under ordinary circumstances such a result would be
highly satisfactory; under the conditions existing it becomes not only satisfactory, but deeply significant. In
brief, the meaning conveyed by the
outcome of the election is three-fold
—it intimates in unmistakable language that the people are satisfied
with the way in which the McBride
Government has administered the domestic and financial affairs of the Province; secondly, it states plainly that
the manufactured scandal ghost-
stories circulated by the Opposition
press and speakers have met with no
credence on the part of the vast majority of the public; thirdly, it proclaims loudly to the rest of the Dominion that Ottawa interference with
the administration of purely Provincial affaire will never be tolerated
west of the Rockies.
It is far from being the
Irrespective intention of The Week,
Of Party.      in commenting  on the
result of this election,
and its true significance, to appear to
exult over the overwhelming defeat
which the Liberal party of British
Columbia has sustained. To do so
would be to show an unpardonable
ignorance of the fact that this great
victory was in no small degree due to
a large section of the Liberal party
itself. The victory, it is true, was
won, and grandly won, by the Conservative party; standing, as that
great section of politics always hns
stood, for a high standard of decency
and honesty in public life, and for
the efficient administration of the
great though only partially developed
country of which we nre all so proud.
But, even more than a Conservative
victory, it was a victory of the people
of British Columbia, irrespective of
party politics. This is clearly shown
by the startling turn-over in Victoria,
where, only three and a half years
ago, the entire Conservative ticket
was snowed under at the Provincial
elections; it is clearly shown by the
result in Vancouver, where, although
it was the centre of the Ottawa-
inspired, Ottawa-paid attempt to
shackle the liberties of the people of
this Province, every Conservative candidate was returned by an enormous
majority; it is clearly shown in the
gent to be deluded by fraudulent tactics or imposed upon by indecency
and mendacity.   In this great victory

British Columbia's Rising Son.
Our cartoon this week is in
Our the nature both of a state-
Cartoon,   ment of existing fact and a
prophecy of what the future
at no distant' date, is likely to bring
forth. The Hon. Richard McBride,
Premier of British Columbia, is even
today much more than the head of
a Provincial party. He has not merely administered wisely and well the
affairs of this Province, but he has
put the Province itself before the
Dominion at large in the light of a
strong man demanding his rights and
determined to get them. Nothing
gathers recruits so quickly as courage
—if this were more generally realized, Canada's position today would
be far better than what it is—and
the man who forced admission of our
rights from the grasping and reluctant lips of the East will find his
following grow year by year in numbers and quality. More than this;
not only did Mr. McBride call the
bluff of the most corrupt government
on the North American continent today, but he did not fear to resist and
bid defiance to the united strength
of a rich, powerful and unscrupulous political machine and a rich,
powerful nnd unscrupulous railway
corporation. He played a bold
game, a man's game, this young
British Columbia lawyer, and he has
won triumphantly. The Dominion
has sore need of young, able, fearless
men. Is it too much to prophecy that
a day may eome in the near future
when he will be called upon to fill for
this great Dominion a similar office
to that which he has so worthily occupied in hf>r richest Province?
If thc Hon. William

"Influences." ly reported from Ottawa in last Sunday's
dispatches, where lie is quoted as saying that the result of thc election
"must have been due to local influences of which he knew nothing,"
then nil we can say is that the Hon.
William Templeman is a very remarkable man—a very remarkable
man indeed. For his better information, The Week begs to tell the Hon.
William Templeman that the said
"influences" (of whicli, of course, he
knows nothing) were identically the
same as those "influences" whicli induced the Hon. William Templeman,
11 few .veal's ago, to withdraw from
the notice-board of the House of
Commons at Ottawa a certain paper
which he, the said Hon. William Templeman, had previously lixed there,
containing certain matter relative to
the protection of Britisli Columbia's
interests in the bill for the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.   As a result of the withdrawal
of this document by the Hon. William

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1907.
A Social Nuisance.
There arc few systems more pernicious in their character, more generally condemned by all classes of
society and yet more permanent in
their nature than the system of "tipping." Unlike the quality of mercy, it
is twice cursed, for it is a curse to
both thc donor and the recipient.
Protests without number have been
registered in the press by the two
classes which are affected, that is by
thc wealthy, or presumably wealthy,
who are mulcted owing to this system, and by the subservient who arc
perpetually made to feel their financial inferiority and their dependence
on the charity of their patrons. And
in spite of the widely felt indignation
that such a system should still exist,
there has not yet been found a generation strong-minded enough to
abolish it. That custom should have
such a hold on the men and women of
today is no credit to our intelligence
and common sense, seeing that we
pride ourselves with justice as being
in a far higher state of civilisation
than our forebears.
It is a matter for satisfaction that
in Canada this evil is not developed to
the extent it is in Europe. It is commonly reported that Italy is the home
of the system and that it is in that
country that thc extraneous demands
on thc traveller's purse arc greater
than in any other kingdom. I am inclined to doubt this, and as I have
travelled extensively in the course of
my Bohemian life, and have consequently been subjected to the imposition in nearly every European country as well as Canada and the United
Stated, I feel competent to give my
opinion on this matter. To my mind
there is little to choose between London and Paris, but if discrimination
is to bc made, I should unhesitatingly
say that the tipping evil claims more
victims in the world's metropolis than
in any other city on the face of the
earth.
Of course it must bc remembered
that ordinary tipping as it is commonly understood differs entirely
from that official extortion, which is
so rampant among Oriental nations,
and of which wc scc a reflection in
what is called in this land of the free
"graft." Thank heaven, England has
not been laid open to this accusation
as yet, and the probabilities are that
she never will be, at any rate not
within thc lifetime of the present generation. She docs, however, stand out
in the fore-front of those countries
where exorbitant tips arc expected by
all "inferiors."
Nor is the reason for this far to
seek. In a land where labour is
abundant and wages arc small the
employer expects his employees to
collect everything except a mere living wage from his customers. In
many cases even the living wage is
not given, but on thc contrary the
employer looks to the pockets of his
employees for part of his profits. It
is well known that waiters pay heavily for the privilege of working in
a first class London hotel, and in addition have to pay their table assistant out of their own pockets before
they make a farthing for themselves.
And yet these men make good money
and have families. Of course it is
the customer who pays for them.
How many barbers in the Old Country could live if it were not for the
traditional two-pence after each
shave,? Who would dare to be one
of a big shoot unless he had a five-
pound note in his pocket for the
gamekeeper? It costs more to stay
as a guest in a country house than
to go to an hotel simply because of
thc extravagant tips which no man
dare refuse to give.
The system is rotten and everybody admits it. The guest at a restaurant would rather have another
sixpence or a shilling entered on his
bill, so that he could escape the necessity of sliding the same amount
into the hand of thc obsequious
waiter as he is helped into his coat.
The waiter would infinitely rather
have a fair wage on which he could
count with certainty than have lo
depend on the chances of his having
enough diners at his table to justify
himself in buying his children clothes.
But though    much  lias    been  said;
though agitations have been raised
to abolish the custom no tangible
result has yet accrued. This is very
largely owing to the selfishness of
the customer who is trying to secure
for himself better service than some
man with a thinner purse, who has
by all thc laws of right and wrong
a first claim on the attention of the
employee, be he waiter, barber or
railway porter. No man likes to be
lhe first to start a healthy reaction
•through fear of being considered
mean; certainly under existing circumstances one can hardly expect
the other party to make a start and
refuse the much needed tip.
I have quoted London as being the
worst offender among European cities
because there the tips expected are
so much larger than in other countries. This is due to a very large
extent to the habits of the rich Americans who flash their millions in
the eyes of the poorer brethren and
by so doing force the scale up. I
think there is no doubt that the
wealthy American abroad is the worst
offender in this respect, and that he
chooses London and Paris as the
two best cities in which to indulge
himself.
Few people will dispute that this
question on which I have touched is
one of those little worries of life
which gradually mount up to be a
real nuisance. I have known cases
where men and women, and particularly the latter, have made themselves
miserable because they do not know
what the correct tip is in a given
emergency, and have invariably overdone the thing for fear of awaking
that look of silent contempt which
the high class English servant knows
so well how to assume. Whether
this habit which is both annoying
and degrading will ever die I know
not, but if it does I hope that it will
be before the death of
BOHEMIAN.

ALCOHOLIC HOWLERS.
Gems From Youthful Essays on Evils
of Drink.
Sonic 12,660 children in the Hull
elementary schools recently entered
\vi;th childish enthusiasm a competition for a prize essay on the evils
of drink. Some gems extracted from
these essays were quoted by Dr. W.
McAdain Eccles* E. R. C. S., the well-
known surgeon, in a lecture on thc
education of the public respecting
alcohol delivered on Tuesday night
before the Society for thc Study of
Inebriety.
We quote the following "howlers"
from the pens of the young moralists
of Hull:—
"When a man is overcome by drink
he should be taken, or go to a hot
place."
"Seafaring men who are in the
habit of drinking are liable to collide
with other vessels."
"Today many people are in gaol for
committing suicide while under the
influence of drink."
The next example is a pathetic
wrestle on the part of a child with
a well-known text:
"Alcohol is a mocker. At last it
biteth like a servant and stingeth
like a hatter."
"Alcohol has an effect upon a medical man's conclusions."
"Doctors say that fatal diseases are
the worst."
"Doctors say that the increased
death-rate shortens lives."
"Some men turns into lunatics (sic),
and have to go to the Lunatic of
Sylum."
"Some people think that the abuse
of drink is right; some take it as a
medicine."
A TRIUMPH FOR VICTORIA.
Dixi H: Ross & Co. Obtain First Prize
in Christmas Window Competition.
The results of the great Christmas
window dressing competition entered
into by practically all the grocery
stores throughout Canada have just
been made known. Victorians who
saw thc beautiful display in Dixi H.
Ross & Co.'s window will not be
surprised to learn that the first prize
has been won by this most enterprising and progressive Victorian firm.
The following extract on the subject
is taken from the Canadian Grocer:
"The December window dressing
competition award has been somewhat delayed because it was thought
best to include in it all the holiday
displays entered. We believe the
entries are the best we have ever had,
and show, as compared with other
years, a distinct advance in window
dressing in Canada. The first and
third prize winners are British Columbia grocers, and the second is a
Toronto man. The winner of the
first prize was Dixi H. Ross & Co.,
of Victoria, B. C. The window was
dressed by H. O. Kirkham, one of
the company's staff of eighteen clerks,
and it is something to be wondered
at and admired."

Dear Madge,—Semi-incredible as it
may appear to your understanding,
politics and perorations have practically driven dress and such "fribbles''
into the background of my mind for
the past two weeks. Everybody has
been talking politics, and flying about
canvassing hard and using the most
unheard-of arguments to "blarney"
thc voter into the way he should go.
And the extra newspaper editions
with cartoons, pamphlets and photos
of the "big four," "solid and successful," and such things have littered
our doorsteps for thc last two weeks.
It is not dress alone that has suffered from the recent political activity, thc serious matter of bridge has
actually had to set aside, and I found
lately that one could make mistakes
with more impunity than before, since
the angry passions of one's partner
were diverted for the moment to the
crimes of these constituents or those.
Dinner parties, too, were a snare. I
speak of my experience of one where
every man waxed eloquent on thc
sure victory of his party, before the
3rd course appeared, and one old
gentleman in the excitement arose ill
his chair, "1 tell you, gentlemen," he
said (completely ignoring the ladies);
"I tell you the country is prosperous
nder the present Government; going
ahead, do you wish it to continue?"
And he bent forward and peered
lown thc length of the table with
>nc hand behind his back. Then it
iiiddenly dawned on him that perhaps
ill this was not quite so interesting
o the ladies present and he sat down
,imid loud applause and bursts of
'hear! hear!" The hostess insisted
that he should finish his speech before the next course bc brought and
the dinner was voted a huge success.
"The  boudoir!"    What  a  different
meaning the name has for the 20th
century woman to that which it had
for her great-grandmother. How
much more it seems nowadays, and
how much less. To the lady of a
by-gone day, its four walls comprised
a great part of her world, Her boudoir was generally a tiny apartment
adjoining her bedroom, in which she
sat for the greater part of the day
sewing her sampler and sipping her
green tea. Here she passed many of
the uneventful hours of her uneventful life unexcited by the thought of
the next hockey or cricket match, un-
resentful at not having a parliamentary vote. For her busy descendant
of today, living more or less strenuously amid the "sturm und drang" of
social, or it may be political or professional, duties, it meaning has altered vastly. To the uppcrclass woman of the present generation her
boudoir is often her private office as
well as the retreat where she can
find a little rest from her many and
arduous  labours.
The society woman ot today is as
many-sided as an octagon, and as
hard-worked as a navvy. She is her
husband's valued adviser and helper,
the mother of children, the brilliant
hostess who entertains his friends—
and his enemies, and she even canvasses for him at election times. All
this is required of her, and it is only
natural and fitting that she should
have at least one room to which she
can retire to snatch a brief respite
from her cares, and at all costs this
room should be dainty and above all
comfortable. The scheme of its colouring and decoration must be designed with a view to securing perfect restfulness to jangled nerves and
tired eyes. It should have soft, rich
carpet and rugs and delicious couch
upon which to stretch her weary
limbs, luxurious arm chairs, a few
good pictures, old china, and bowls
full of sweet-scented flowers. A
period style might be chosen, but it
must bc rigidly adhered to if perfect
harmony and reposeful elegance are
to be attained. The "unpardonable
sin" in  decoration and furnishing is
incongruity—style is the savour, for
want of which so many rooms lack
distinction. Weiler Bros, have everything that is necessary for a retreat
of this kind, and after all, why should
not a woman enjoy the luxury of a
tiny little nest of her very own, when
her husband has his own den or study
wherein he locks himself at intervals.
We are hearing on all sides that
Victoria's day of prosperity has
dawned, and thereon we are congratulating ourselves.
But the cold and clammy hand of
a gloomy premonition clutches my
heart—I fear for certain of my wild
and unspoiled haunts.
There is one little road in particular which has twined its sinuosities
about my soul.
It winds away in such a desirably
elusive fashion, through majestic
rustling trees and dainty shrubberies,
and then, as the woods press ever
closer about it, twists desperately
beneath an arch of kissing willows.
Pass through that graceful doorway
and there at your feet lies the dancing, gleaming sea.
Alongside of my lane are brown,
wet meadows, and here and tliere a
picturesque old Chinese farm house,
all quaintly grey and dilapidated.
It is peacefully rural and happy.
Little leafy rivulets sing out through
the trees and the clean sea breeze
scampers in the tree-tops. There are
always sunny glades where I can
abandon myself to the spirit of the
woods and dream romantic day
dreams undisturbed.
And now, alas, all this will vanish,
and leave me—what? The fields are
to bc divided into valuable building
lots. My pretty road will become
pavement and macadam in place of
the greensward and muddy wheel
tracks. The tiny streams must cease
their murmuring to the trees. And
when semi-detached villas and clanging cars appear I shall regretfully
bid my dear sylvan solitudes farewell.
N?> doubt it will be the path of
progress, and prosaically right and
proper, but nevertheless, thc thought
oppresses me with sorrow.
I do not believe we half appreciate
the natural beauties of Victoria—I
suppose because we are too familiar
with thein.
Sometimes in the early morning I
slip off down my lovely lane, and scc
how fresh and glorious the world is.
The mountains rise with such magnificent inconsequence from thc blue-
ness of the sea, and they look so
placid and untiretl, so palpably undisturbed by the small affairs of silly
mortals—their snow, sun-lit, cheerful
heads have looked serenely upon too
many centuries for that.
At this time of the year the colours
in thc woods are soft and dcliciously
low-toned. Yellow-brown of grass
melts into the shadow of bracken,
and crimson-brown rose bushes arc
crowned by gleams of the reddest
berries.
I have thought that if I knew an
Atheist I should feel inclined to take
him out with mc some bright morning to see whether, at the least, I
could convert him to Pantheism.
I would wave my hand in true
showman's style and say to him;
"Learned sir, cannot this convince
you? Where did it all come from—
this riot of colour—this glory of sky
and sea and green. Do you think
that, like Topsy, it 'just growed?
Grew out of nothing, for nothing, but
to return to nothingness. Sir," i
would thunder at him, "Have you no
soul to which a soul in all this whispers? Then, lacking it, do not allow
your incredulity to stamp you tin-
most credulous of mortals." And
turning dramatically and scornfully
upon my heel I would leave him to
meditate there in thc broom bushes.

In replying to the toast, Mr. Paul

The students from the Hartley College, Southampton, who made themselves so conspicuous with their cries
on the occasion of the departure of

SOME PRESS OPINIONS.
Conspiracy Defeated.
It must be a source of satisfaction
to every patriotic citizen that the conspiracy concocted at Ottawa against
British Columbia has been defeated.
The people of this Province have supported the Government in its refusal
to allow a railway corporation to exploit the public resources for its own
benefit. They have endorsed the action of the Government in its protest  against  the  interference  of thc
Well, Let's Hope So, But—.
There is one thing about the recent
canvass that must have struck Mr.
Macdonald with considerable force,
and that is that he was kept well informed as to what his political opponents considered his shortcomings.
As Mr. Macdonald has had these so
plainly pointed out to him, he doubtless will make a more useful representative of this riding in the future
than he has in the past. This is said
in no captious spirit, but in the hope
that he will strive to do that for the
people of Rossland for which he was
elected.—Rossland Miner.
people and that they desire that the
conduct of Provincial affairs shall remain in its hands. Not on one detail
only of its administration did the Government appeal to the people. It
submitted to that tribunal everything
done since the elections in 1903; it
met squarely and fully every charge
made by the Opposition. It outlined
its policy for the future and the authorisation it has now received from
the electorate is as complete and definite as could possibly be desired.—

policy. This is a circumstance that
may have not unimportant results in
the direction of certain details of
policy. It may not be without interest to point out that this is the first
occasion since Vancouver City was in
1890 given direct representation in
the Legislature, that the two cities
have had all their representatives in
the House in entire accord in their
support of a particular policy, party
or government.—Vancouver News-
Advertiser.
Tolerate No Ottawa Interference.
The interference from Ottawa by
the Dominion Government with British Columbia politics was another factor that contributed to the success of

The decision of the City
The Tourist to increase their grant
Association, to the Tourist Association, the discussion on
which was the most prominent feature
of last Monday's meeting at the City
Hall, will meet with the hearty approval of almost every citizen of Victoria. The work done by the Association during the past few years has
been of incalculable value to the
people of this city, irrespective of age,
sex or class. From being an unknown "fishing village at the south
end of Vancouver Island"—as a railway ticket agent in Vancouver derisively described it to a friend of the
writer not so very many years ago—
Victoria has become the Tourists'
Paradise, the Mecca alike of the
home-seeker and the holiday-maker
from other less favored parts
of this continent. In increased
comfort, in increased prosperity, in
increased population and industry, the
good results from this changed point
of view are apparent on every hand.
And this is directly due to the efforts
of the Tourist Association, a body to
which—not for the lirst time—The
Week now takes occasion to pay its
hearty respects. It is only right and
just that tlie citizens of Victoria, who
profit so largely by the energy and enterprise of this body, should bear their
share, pro rata, of an institution
which is so distinctly for the good of
all; and the Mayor and Council are
to be warmly commended for their
decision in the matter.
In connection with this
An Ominous giant to the Tourist
Sig"'.. Association,   and    the
discussion whicli took
place in regard to it, there occurred
a feature which Tlie Week is desirous
of expressing its unalterable opposition to. We refer to the expressed
desire of two or three of the aldermen to submit the question of the

know what a "referendum" is; we
know what a "plebiscite" is. And
we are going to give nm* readers 11
definition of the two terms, packed
small, in tabloid form, easy for the

which is deplorably weak. The referendum is the last refuge of a cowardly executive; it is the final resource of that rapidly-growing body
of so-called "public" men. tlie spineless creeping avarice of whose mental
make-up craves the emoluments of
office, but shirks its responsibilities;
the loop-hole of escape for the miserable travesty of manhood—the degraded product of the false doctrine
of equality—who dare not stand up
for his own opinions, or perform an
independent act ion, but must shift
the responsibility onto the shoulders
of thoso who arc paying him money
to bear it himself. In a word, il is
un-Mritisli, because it is cowardly:
it is unconstitutional, because il is 1111

Won On Good Record.
Premier McBride made his fight on
the record of his Government, and
the stand he took on the Better
Terms Question. Both these things
are so well known that they require
no more explanation. But the fact
that the Government has been so
ably sustained shows that the people
of this Province have every confidence in the ability and integrity of
the Government to administer its affairs for another four years.—Nanaimo Free Press.
Federal authorities in Provincial affairs, and have defeated the scheme to
place in power at Victoria a Ministry
that would be willing to submit to
dictation from Ottawa and to accept
a settlement of our claims for better
terms on conditions very unjust to
the Province. Now that British Columbia has declared in such emphatic
tones that she will not tolerate dictation from Quebec, or thc domination of her domestic affairs by Ottawa, we may anticipate a change in
the situation that will not be unfavorable to this Province. And, lastly,
thc result of the election on Feb. 2nd
demonstrates to the people of Canada
that the Pacific Province is strongly
Conservative and ready at any time
to engage in a contest in defence of
Provincial    Rights    against    all    the
A Great Victory.
Xo more emphatic endorsement of
its past actions and policy could have
been asked by the Provincial Government than was given Saturday, Feb.
2nd, through thc ballot box by the
electors of British Columbia. The
campaign of slander and abuse, to
which the Government has been subjected, has met with signal condemnation from the people at the first
opportunity that has been afforded
them. Not merely was the Government assailed as an administration; its
members were attacked individually
and charges made reflecting on them
personally, on their motives and conduct. Saturday's victory at the polls
has swept away these slanders and
has made clear in a manner that admits of no doubt that the Government has the fullest confidence of the
the Premier and his colleagues. The
defeat of Judge Henderson of Vancouver, who resigned from the bench
to enter the fight, and the defeat of
Mr. Mclnnes, should teach the Federal Government for all time, whether
Liberal or Conservative, that the people of British Columbia will tolerate
no interference in matters purely
provincial.—Nanaimo Free Press.
A Tale of Two Cities.
Particularly gratifying both to the
Government and to Conservatives
generally must bc the result of thc
elections in Vancouver and Victoria.
The splendid majorities with which
the voters of both places elected every
member on their tickets shows beyond question that the two principal
cities in British Columbia arc in accord  with   the   Government   and   its
The Result.
The result of the elections on Saturday was a decided expression of
opinion by British Columbia upon
three matters of prime importance
to her interests. In the substantial
majority given to the McBride Government, the people signified their
appreciation of the work which has
been done by the administration during the past three years—its appreciation of the prudent character of
the legislation passed, and the determination evinced to put the affairs
of the Province on a stable and economic basis. They also signified their
resolution to maintain in their own
hands the direction of their affairs,
and to permit no interference from
the Federal authorities. And, finally,
they gave the sanction of their approval to the attitude which the McBride Government has adopted toward the Grand Trunk Pacilic Railway; an attitude in all respects
friendly, but resolute that the public
domain shall not be conferred upon
it for performing a work which it
is under contract to accomplish, and
for which it has already been abundantly   subsidized.
We may take it that the people of
this Province are fully alive to the
attempt which was made by the Federal Government upon their independence, and by thc railway upon their
assets. Their votes have abundantly
indicated that. But we are disposed
to the opinion that even had these
dangers not threatened them they
would have given almost as decided
an expression in favor of the Government, as they did. After all, there
were no issues in the campaign of a
strictly local nature. The only question was, were the people satisfied
with the conduct of their affairs by
the men who have directed them during the past three years? and their
answer to this question was decidedly
in the affirmative. Under the circumstances it was to be expected that
the Government would be given a renewal of office. Party feeling, oi
course, was a factor in thc contest
and it was to party feeling that, ir
this city especially, thc Oppositioi
candidates received the very considerable vote they did, But that tha
party feeling was very materiallj
modified, and especially so, whei
confronted with thc outside attempt:
which were being made to influenci
thc electors, is shown by thc splcndit
majorities which were given to tin
nominees of thc Government.—Van

The Brackman-Ker Milling Co., Ltd.,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sirs:—
In accordance with a request of your representative, I hereby send
you a statement of the results of my two years' trial of Sutton's Seeds.
In the season of 1905, I sowed Sutton's Mangel Seed alongside of other
seeds purchased from a reputable firm in Vancouver, each having the
same chance in every way, such as soil and cultivation, but the plants from
Sutton's Seeds seemed to get the start of the other plants from the first
and kept so throughout the season, showing greater vitality, and the results
of the yield from Sutton's Seeds were fully one-third more tons per acre
than from the other seeds sown. .With these results before me, it is needless to say that in the season of 1906 I grew only Sutton's Seeds. I
sowed Sutton's Prizewinner Yellow Globe, Yellow Intermediate, and Sugar
Mangel, and from a field under five acres we harvested about 205 tons, or
a little over 40 tons per acre, a yield which I consider very satisfactory, and
in this lot we had no large, overgrown mangels, but all were of uniform
size and solid, therefore, I think, of better feeding and keeping qualities
than the large, overgrown rough varieties. So with my experiences with
Sutton's and other seeds, I have no hesitation in recommending Sutton's
Seeds to my brother farmers. The price may seem high compared with
other firms' seeds, but the increased results fully warrant paying the
extra price. .'
For myself I intend sowing nothing but Sutton's Seeds, even if other
seeds were offered me free of cost.
Yours faithfully,
WM. E. BUCKINGHAM.

Dear Sirs:—
The vegetable and root seeds which I got from you in the Spring of
1906 have given me every satisfaction and I have had far larger crops than
in former seasons. From five acres of Prizewinner Yellow Globe Mangels
I got 210 tons (weighed) of roots of first quality. I also obtained first
prize for roots at Vernon Fair, and, after visiting the New Westminster
Fair, I regretted very much that I did not send these roots to that fair, as,
in the opinion of several parties who visited our fair here, our roots were
better than anything shown at New Westminster. The little extra cost
of the seed should not be considered for one minute by anybody, as the
germinating power of these seeds is away ahead of any other seeds being
sold in this country. I gave about a lA-Vo. of mangel seed to a neighbor
of mine who planted them beside some mangel seed obtained from a well
known Eastern firm, the variety was the same and the seed received the
same treatment, etc. The row of Sutton's Seeds just gave almost double
the amount of roots and roots of finer quality. I hope you will forward
me your Catalogue for this next season as soon as possible.
Yours faithfully,

VICTORIA.
It is doubtful if a more capable
company than that which comes to
the Victoria Theatre, Monday, Feb,
11, in the support of Miss Isabel
Irving, who is starring this season in
the Jerome K. Jerome play, "Susan
In Search of a Husband," has been
seen upon the local stage in many a
long day, for it comprises a number
of players who have won lasting fame
for themselves in many important
productions. To begin with, there is
Herbert Standing, the father of the
well-known actor, Guy Standing, Avho
has achieved such an enviable reputation. The elder Mr. Standing is an
experienced English actor, who has
appeared witli nearly all thc prominent English actors of the last forty
years, lie was an associate of the
late Sir Henry Irving, of Sir George.
Alexander. Ilccrbohm-Trcc, John
Hare, Cyril Maude, Lewis Waller, and
was for some years at the head of his
own company touring lhe English
provinces.
Marie Wainwright will bc remembered lor her years of excellent work
upon the American stage. She has
supported many of our prominent actors including nearly every dramatic
star of prominence in the limelight
of today. For several seasons she was
the chief support of thc noted English actor, 1? S. Willard. In addition
to this she is known as one of the
best Shakespearian stars of the conn
try. for she appeared as co-star with
Louis James, and was ill her last big
production seen in the stellar role of
"Amy Robsart," which was known
as one of the most magnificent productions that has graced the American stage in recent years, Hassan!
Short ? an English actor wdio has
made an excellent name for himself
here and in the United States, ami last
season he was associated with, Miss
Irving in ihe Viola Allen production
of "idle Toast of thc Town." A. G.
Andrews is best known for his long
association with Richard Mansfield,
in whose company he remained for
sixteen consecutive years, Ernest
Mainwaring is an English actor wdio
has played with nearly all lhe prominent British stars and he was for
some years one of tlie chief members
of thc Haymarket Theatre Company,
which has won such undying fame
for the excellence of its productions
in recent years. Miss Jessie Izett.
who plays the second part in the present play is well known in thc United
States, for she has starred in her own
companies for several years and was
for some years an associate of well-
known players of prominence. For
two   seasons   she   starred   in   " Frou
Frou."
Few companies are so well equipped
in point of talent as this, and with
Miss Irving herself, who Is account
ed one of thc most promising of the,
younger generation of stars, it is au
organization that must command attention. Bearing as it does the well-
known stamp ot thc firm of Liebler &
Co., who have never yet put together
an inferior organization, great things
arc in prospect in the way of an excellent entertainment in this instance.
She Stoops to Conquer.
It is universally admitted by all
wdio were fortunate enough to obtain
seals at the Victoria Theatre last
Monday that the production of Goldsmith's famous play by Crane & Jeffreys scored thc biggest success which
has been seen in Victoria for many
years, Thc bouse was packed to its
utmost capacity, while many were the
dissappointed ones who wero unable
to secure admittance. There were
those who thought that W. H. Crane
should have taken a mort important
role than that of Hardcastle, but, personally, 1 thought that he so completely identified himself with the
character he represented that his action was more than justified. Of
Miss Jeffreys as Kate it is superfluous to say much. Her acting was
excellent. Of the support it is safe
to say that George Giddons as Tony
held the honours, though the whole
company was far above the average.
"Yon Yonson."
On Wednesday night George
Thompson and Miss Ida Werner appeared at thc Victoria Theatre in thc
comedy drama, "Yon Yonson." The
play is a stage duplicate of one of
Stewart Edward \Vhite?s lumber
stories and describes a thrilling rescue
effected in a log jam. The company
fulfilled their part creditably and thoroughly satisfied a well-filled house
The New Grand.
A protest was written to The Victoria Times on Wednesday with regard t" the singing of the American
National Anthem by Messrs. Seaman,
Le Chartier and Rogers on the New
Grand Stage during their musical turn,
ln Thursday's Colonist a reply was
made by Manager Jamieson defending
their action. 1 think myself that it
is always a mistake to use any .\?t-
tional Anthem on the stage; it is apt
to offend some people, and it somewhat detracts from thc imprcssivencss
of the anthem, whether it bc the British or American or any other. At all
events no fault could bc found with
thc sinning of thc performers in question, lhe bass voice being particularly line in quality and production. 1

were given in Victoria by amateurs
last Thursday night, and due consideration being made for the inclemency of thc weather, were well attended.
In thc A. 0. U. W. Hall thc three-
act play, "Tiie Two Artists," was set
on for the benefit of St. James' parish
and proved an immense success, so
much so tliat it was determined to
reproduce it at a matinee next Saturday. Thc play is extremely amusing
and elicited roars of laughter. Miss
Eileen Flint as a virago, and Mr. Cecil
Berkeley as a hen-pecked husband beiug all that could be desired to bring
out the comedy parts. Miss Mildred
Sweet as the country damsel played
her part excellently, as did Miss 11.
Hall as tlie bored society beauty. Mr.
J. i indlay made a great hit in lite
character of a half-witted boor, while
Mr. Charles Bamphylde Daniell and
Mr. Gerald Pooley both sustained the
principal male roles with becoming
effect. The performance was very far
removed from what is ordinarily seen
in amateur theatricals, and the utmost
credit is due to the organisers, the
stage manager and the performers,
ln thc intervals between thc acts,
songs were contributed by Mr. L.
McLeod Gould and Miss Talbot, the
latter also giving a recitation. Miss
K. Roberts gave much pleasure by
dancing a Highland fling in appropriate costume, but what fairly
brought thc house down was a grand
operatic solo duct by Mr. Findlay,
who combined the parts of soprano,
in which he successfully imitated
Mde. Albani and heavy tenor. Mr.
Gerald Pooley also sang1 a couple of
comic songs which were well received. I strongly advise all who can
get a.way on Saturday afternoon to
go to the A. O. U. W, Hall and setae  matinee performance.
On thc same night an amateur performance was given at the Victoria
Theatre on behalf of thc Tourist Association. For thc most part this was
a repetition of the society vaudeville
which so delighted everybody a short
time ago. A new number, however,
was the song by Mr. Griffiths, who
is a stranger to the musical world of
Victoria, though this is not likely to
be thc case any longer after his appearance Thursday night. His song
brought forth a hearty encore. Miss
Winifred Lugrin also sang and was
much appreciated, There were some
splendid tableaux which evinced
much good taste, and the programme
came to a close with an absurdity in
one act entitled "Thc Accommodating Slavey," in which Mrs. Herbert
Kent, Mr. Fred Richardson and Mr.
Julier took part. In the name of the
Tourist Association Mayor Morley
addressed the performers, thanking
them for their efforts on behalf of
that organisation.

Whilst taking my peripatetic way
round town the other day I was stopped by an unfortunate man who asked me in all seriousness to make an
appeal in my "valuable" columns to
the School Board on behalf of those
who have had such trouble lately
owing to the sharp frost. "Why can't
they teach the children something
useful in the schools?" he continued.
"If I had my way I should make every
boy go through a course of plumbing, and then he might be of some
use to his parents when the pipes
burst, and you can't get a plumber
for love or money." There is something intensely practical in this idea
and I offer the suggestion to those in
authority whom it may concern.
But why stop at plumbing? In
these days of tribulation when labour
is scarce, and domestic service is
unobtainable the girls should be compelled to learn how to cook. This
would be far more sensible than
teaching them Latin. Whatever may
be said in favour of the classics in
the Old Country it cannot be seriously contended that they are an atom
of good out here. I never could understand why a girl should learn
Euclid; teach her dress-making instead. Let the boys emulate the great
and only George, and learn how to
cut down a cherry tree. So far as I
can make out there is less technical
education in British Columbia than
there is in England, and there is certainly far more need for it.
I' suppose that the city is responsible for the repairing of the broken
lamp on James' Causeway; if it had
been in the hands of any other than
a public corporation it would have
been replaced weeks, if not months,
ago. I do not profess to remember
exactly how long it has been standing as a disgrace to the city, but it is
a very long time. In such a public
spot, where all the new arrivals from
the boats pass, it is not creditable
that such an eye-sore should remain
any longer. It gives the impression
that Victoria is too poor to spend
money on such a little thing as a new
lamp. We may be poor, but for
heaven's sake, don't let us be mean.
The lamps are bad enough anyhow,
and their practical value at night as
light-bearers is nil, but in the day
time they look all right and they
should be promptly replaced when
they are broken.
I never met so many good-tempered people in Victoria before as I
did last Thursday. It was a day to
depress the most cheerful man on
the face of the globe, and I expected
to see sour countenances, and hear
nothing but grumblings at the state
of the weather. On the contrary,
everybody was so pleased at the absence of snow, and the departure of
the cold snap that they welcomed the
rain, I might almost say, with open
arms. This is the correct philosophical spirit, the spirit which characterises those charming comforters who
come up to you when you have a
toothache, and tell you to try to forget it. How one does loathe these
persons, and they arc always the ones
to make the most fuss if they pinch
their finger in a door, or have some
other trifling accident.
I wish some delegate of the Trades
and Labour Union would explain to
me why they arc so averse from having any more labour brought into thc
country. I can understand their kick
against the heathen Chinese and the
Hindu, because these will work so
much more cheaply, but it appears
rather odd that they should have
taken the attitude they have done
with regard to the immigration of
Englishmen through the agency of
the Salvation Army. It cannot fail
to give every intelligent thinker the
impression that they are determined
at all hazards to keep the labour to
themselves. This is what I have always heard called "A Dog in the
■ Manger" policy, as they must realise
that there is enough work to l)e done
without depriving any of the existing
labourers of their good wages. Just
because the immigrants would come
in under the auspices of the Salvation Army does not necessarily imply
that they would be a collection of the
scum of Europe. Everyone admits
the magnificent work which has been
done by the followers of General
Booth, and the majority of their proteges have proved themselves good
men.
A German inventor is said to have
promised to put a serviceable and reliable flying-machine on the market
in thc course of a very few years at
the price of $250. I only hope that
I shall be in the land of the living
when this happens. I can imagine
nothing more fascinating than travelling in one of these aerial automobiles, and there would be none of thc
nuisance of smell which characterises
the ordinary motor-car, and which
called forth the parody:—
"Stinkle, stinkle, little car,
How I wonder why you are,
Bound to smell so very high,
Like an oil stove in a stye."
Any fuss which the air-ship might
discharge would be left up far above
the earthly nostril; there would be
no noise, and the saving of wear and
tear on the streets would be immense.
There would be also the satisfaction
that in the case of an accident the
victims would have no time to think
of the future, or to nurse broken
limbs. All aerial break-downs would
be guaranteed to kill outright. When
the happy day arrives don't look for
me at the street corner, cast your
eyes aloft, and there sailing peacefully through the breezes you will see
THE LOUNGER.
Dress and Religion.
It takes a heroic woman to go to
church in anything but her best. It
is, apparently, impossible to get one's
mind in a fitting religious condition
unless one's clothes can triumphantly
sustain the scrutiny of the righteous.
Who lias not owned some perfectly
fitting dress which has given its
wearer on a Sunday that sense of
peace ond holy contentment whicli it
is not in thc power of the sermon to
bestow?—Mrs. John Lane, in " Fortnightly Review."
The Premier's Hates.
Sir H. Campbcll-Banncrman is on
disarmament questions almost frantic. He loathes all wars—but especially a war in which Great Britain
is likely to be victorious. Hc dislikes every form of militarism, but
his particular detestation is reserved
for the British Navy and thc British
Army.—-"The Outlook."
Britain's  Compliment.
Hitherto in British diplomacy the
first-rate men were reserved for Paris,
Berlin, St. Petersburg, Vienna, and
Constantinople, while Washington
meant promotion only to diplomats
stationed at thc capitals of little countries. But this appointment of Mr.
Bryce is the greatest compliment ever
paid to this nation by Great Britain.

when passing sentence on one of the
most notorious swindlers of modern
times.
These announcements*, however,
only occur at rare intervals, and yet
at the present time hundreds of professional card-sharpers are known to
the police. But the difficulty is to
actually catch them "in the act," for
information, no matter how well authenticated, is of little practical use
unless it can absolutely bc proved.
So ingenious arc many of the appliances utilised by tlie swell card-
sharper, said one of tlie best players
in London recently to the writer, that
it seems a pity such ingenuity lias not
been devoted to a better cause.
For instance, what is known by
those in the swim as the "brace-box"
swindle is literally a triumph of art—
for thc faro swindler. By this device
the professional gambler can easily
fleece a man for nights running without there being the very slightest
chance of his shady methods being
found out.
There arc, moreover, very few gambling games at which more is lost
every year than at faro, and this, of
course, is an additional advantage to
the card-sharper, as lie is therefore
enabled to win large sums in a comparatively short time.
The theory of faro is simplicity
itself. A pack of ordinary cards is

British Columbia
THE FRUIT GROWING RESOURCES
OF THE PROVINCE.
Fruit Growing.
British Columbia fruit is preferred
above all others in the markets of
the Middle West, where it commands
profitable prices. In 1901 a small
exhibit sent to England was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Horticultural Society, and last year
(1905) a car lot, exhibited in London, won the first prize from all competitors, while no less than eight
medals were awarded the individual
exhibits which made up the collection. This goes to prove that despite
the great distance British Oolumbia
fruit has secured a prominent place
in the British market, in which Oregon and California applies have heretofore sold at the highest prices.
The fruit industry of British Columbia is in its infancy, but the results so far secred are convincing as
to its future importance. The actual
extent of fruit growing land has not
yet been ascertained, but by a conservative estimate at least one million acres south of the 52nd degree
will produce all the fruits of the temperate zone. The recognized fruit
districts include the southern part
of Vancouver Island and the Gulf
Islands, Lower Fraser River Valley,
Thompson River Valley, Shuswap
Lake, Okanagan, Spallumcheen, Oso-
yoos, Similkameen, Upper Columbia
Valley, Kootenay Lake, Arrow Lake,
Lower Columbia River and Grand
Forks, which are all suited to the
best grades of fruit, and which contain extensive areas of fruit lands.
Other good fruit districts are: West
Coast of Vancouver Island, West
Coast of Mainland (where patches of
fruit lands are found at the heads of
the numerous inlets), Lower Fraser
Valley, Nicola, Grand Prairie, and
many other localities. In some of
these sections irrigation is necessary,
and, as mentioned elsewhere, water is
being supplied where the influx of
population variants the necessary
expenditure. Many localities, which
are now proved to be suitable for
fruit culture, were but recently "discovered," for a few years ago fruit
was only raised in the settlements
along the coast and along the rivers,
and in quantity that failed to supply
even tlio limited local demand. In
1891 tho total orchard area of the
province was 6,500 acres. In ten
years it only increased 1,000 acres,
but from 1901 to 1905 it jumped to
22.000 acres, and it is safe to say
that that acreage will be mors than
doubled again before the close of
1906. Ten years ago British Columbia did not produce enough fruit to
supply her own population. The fol-
following table of fruit shipments is
interesting in showing the steady
growth of the industry:

"Talking of thc power of thc human

the discussion on mesmerism, "I was
passing through a field when a terrific
bellowing caused mc to look around.
And when 1 saw that ,1 maddened,
snorting bull was bearing straight
down upon mc, my heart stood
still. I rushed on a few yards, and—
then I remembered the power of the
human eye and I turned and bent a
magnetic gaze on thc advancing
animal.
"On, on he came toward mc, till at
last hc was within a few yards of mc.
Then he lifted his magnificent head
and caught my eye. For a moment
he wavered; then he turned and raced
back."
As he ceased there arose a storm of
dissent.
"I forgot to mention," the quiet
man continued, when he got a chance
to resume, "that when I rushed those
few yards I was able to jump over a
stout wall, and the gazing was done
from the safe side of the wall."
"Well," said one of the dissenters,

Charley (aged seven): "The devil
and all his works."
Inspector: "What was the first
thing the little boy Samuel did when
he got up in the morning?"
Susan: "Please, sir, carried up a
cup of tea to Eli."
Teacher: "Why did David say he'd
father bc a doorkeeper in the House
of thc Lord?"
George William: "Because, if he
was a doorkeeper he could walk outside while the sermon was being
preached."
Boy (reading): "She threw herself
into thc river. Her husband, horror-
stricken, rushed to the bank "
Teacher (cutting in): "Why did thc
husband rush to thc bank?"
Boy: "Please, sir, to get thc insurance money!"

Mr. Chamberlain's Spirited Message
to Canada.
From Highbury Mr. Chamberlain
has sent a signed message to thc
people of Canada which breathes thc
great statesman's characteristic spirit
and vigour. Thc message was sent
in response to a request from the
editor of the "Montreal Star." It
runs as follows:
"I thoroughly appreciate the patriotism of thc Canadian people and
the sentiment which so strongly
moves them in tlie consideration of
all questions of commercial preference between the Dominion and thc
Mother country.
"I am profoundly convinced that of
all the bonds that can unite nations
thc bond of commerce is the
strongest, and the perception of this
fact will, I feel assured, ultimately
lead to the closer union between
Great Britain and her Colonies which
I can see to bc the only foundation
for a great Empire. Such a union
can only be brought about by the
spread of mutual understanding, and
I rejoice that thc movement has made
great progress during the last few-
years. The issue has never been
fairly raised in thc United Kingdom,
and the defeat of thc Unionist party
at thc last election was due to causes
altogether outside the question of mutual preference.
"The growing strength and prosperity of Canada will give to her decision an importance that it never had
before, and I do not believe that in
the long run thc people of this country will bc behind the other parts of
the Empire in promoting a policy
which must tend to place the Britisli
Empire on a level with the other
great associations of nations with
which it will have to compete."

The Vancouver Province in Tenny-
sonian Poetry.
NOTICE is hereby given that 30 days
after date, 1 intend to apply to the Hon.
Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works
for a special license to out and carry
away   timber   from   the   following   do-
away   tiniDer   irom   mo   <>■.	
Moved by the  sad fate  of  Mr.   VV.   scribed lands,  situated in Barclay Dis
trict:
W. B. Mclnnes, thc Vancouver Prov
ince of the 4th inst. secured him an
undying lame by thc following ludicrous parody bn Tennyson's well-
known "May Queen." It is quite tlie
cleverest bit of political poetry that
has appeared for some time, and we
take the liberty of reproducing it for
the amusement and instruction of our
readers:
I.—The Eve of the Election.
You must mind and call me early, call
me early. Kelly dear; ,,■,...,,.,,
Tomorrow '11 be the proudest day I've   north 80
known for many a year; t„ nnint
Of all my titful life, Kelly, the merriest
of the whole,
For I'm to be top 0' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be top 0' the poll.
There's  many   a   sharp,   sharp  tongue,
they  say,  but  none  so  sharp  as
mine;
There's Bowser and there's Henderson
and many more that shine'
But none  so cute as Billy
city roll,
BARGAINS
-IN-
111       IV       Kl\.      vw,,       „
to be top 0' the pol
I fidget so all night, Kelly, that I shall
be awake,
And  eager  for  your  coming  when  the
day begins to break;
I  must  get  a pretty  Mower  or  two  to
deck my button-hole,
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be top o' the poll.
As I came up on Granville street whom
think you I should spy,
But Tatlow, at the Postoffice, with sad
and downcast eye;
I  could  not  help  but  pity  him,  that's
true, upon me soul;
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be top o' the poll.
He shuddered as he saw me;  his hair
was out of curl.
And I passed him without speaking like
any sullen churl;
They call me cruel-hearted, but I care
not what they say,
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be M. L. A.
They say that Garden's awful sore because lie ean't get in,
They say McGuire will have a fit, but
I don't care a pin;
Macgowan, too. I'll humble, lu the dust
I'll make him roll,
For I'm to be top 0' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be top 0' the poll.
I've got a wire from Wilfy, he says he
hopes I'll win;
And you'll be there, my Kelly dear, to
see me carried in,
And the Lib'ral boys from all the wards
when tlie band begins tn play,
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be M. L. A.
II.—After the Declaration of the Foil.
They  told  me I  was  sure  to win—the
mean, deceitful crew,—
That Bowser hadn't got a chance,—but
oh, it wasn't true;
But  now   the   legislative  halls   I   shall
never, never see.
So  you  can  tuck  me  in  my bunk and
think no more of me.

THE NATION'S PERIL.
r E. Wood Denounces the Chnanel
Tunnel.
Sir Evelyn Wood looked up with
sudden note of restrained passion
his voice. "If I were a Minister,"
: said, "I would sacrifice office and
nk and power and strip myself of
|l my authority before I acquiesced
the construction of a Channel tun-
jel."
II was seated in the veteran Field
farshal's study at Harrow. In the
all without and in the room itself
ie ornaments and mementoes around
roclaimed the historic past and the
Irenuous present of my host. An
Egyptian mummy case, squat and of
licommon shape, 6,000 years old, reminded  one  of  his  years  with   the
Fuzzies," ' when he raised up that
Igyptian army which is Britain's
Ablest and most  splendid Imperial
ophy of modern times.
|"With one possible exception, every
|ldier of rank and authority whom
know," continued Sir Evelyn, "feels
same—some more strongly, some
lrhaps not so strongly. From a mili-
fy point of view it is unthinkable
at thc tunnel should be constructed.
Uncertainty of Mines.
|'We are told that such precautions
uld be  devised  that  at the  mere
[lisper of danger thc tunnel might
destroyed  by  the  pressure of a
|tton.   I am satisfied that no means
■uld be devised, however elaborate,
at might not come to nothing
Jrough trickery or weakness or the
l* of money.
['Soldiers do not regard very seri-
Isly the theory that foreign troops
liuld come over disguised as straw-
Irry pickers or commercial travel-
rs, or the like, and secure possession
J the British end of the tunnel while
Enforcements were hurried through,
It possible military conditions would
|ow troops to land and hold our end
the tunnel long enough to repair
Images made by us, and to bring
Ipports through. The laying of
lues would not be a sufficient safe-
lard. Every soldier knows that
|ines have an odd way of not going
when expected.
"It sounds simple to say that you
|mld touch your button and the tun-
would be shattered, but what if
hen the button was touched no ex-
fcsion followed? Mining is too un-
jtaln to entrust the vital point of
Ir national defense to it.
■'And who is to press the button
lit will blow up the tunnel? Sup-
|se that your tunnel is constructed,
mines are laid, ana everything is
|perfect working order. News comes
ildenly and unexpectedly, as it is
|-tain  to when  the attempt to  in-
de us is made, that some Power is
Jut to attack.
I'One man will have to decide in a
ry brief space of time whether the
|inel is to be destroyed or not.   He
sws that the pressure of his finger
|.l hurl a train-load of his own fel-
-countrymen now innocently trav-
Jng  through  and  believing  all   is
III to certain death. He knows, too,
it if he destroys the tunnel without
[solute necessity he may bring trou-
between thc nations and will ruin
|nsclf.
"The Man at the Button."
|'I tell you there are very few who
ve nerve enough thus to send liun-
bds to instant death for what at the
|ie must be mainly suspicion. Yet
brief delay by the man at the but-
li and all the mines will be useless.
I'During my own life Britain has
Ian on the verge of war with great
Iwers," Sir Evelyn continued,
what reason have we to believe that
[will not be so again in the future?
Iwar does come, it will come unex-
ftedly and unannounced. Natural-
■ the first object of an enemy at-
Iking us will be to secure control
lthe tunnel, if there is a tunnel.
fit will be the one vulnerable
jnt, a constant incentive to others
a constant menace to ourselves.
Ir foes will scheme and plan in
bry way to secure possession. The
In in control—the military guard-
Is of the tunnel—will bc known and
Itched. If one of them shows any
■lis of weakness, lie will bc ap-
lachcd. What docs a bribe of
lo.ooo matter to .1 country that is
ing to save millions by it?
"Even if the guardians prove incorruptible, if the mines are in order
and the button is touched at the right
time, and part of the tunnel blown up,
all danger will not be over. Armies
today carry spans in their train to repair bridges injured or blown up by
the enemy. Those attacking us would
set their engineers to plan, and have
all ready, so that the damage caused
by our mines could be quickely set
right. We are sometimes told that
modern conditions make a surprise
attack impossible. On this point let
me give you my own experience.
Surprise Attack Possible.
"When I was commanding the Second Army Corps I paid some surprise
visits to Dover, and ordered a general alarm to be sounded for the garrison at daybreak. I wanted to see
that everything was ready, whatever
might happen.
"Twice at Dover the fog was so
dense when the alarm was sounded
in the morning that the men at their
emergency posts could not tell what
was happening. Now, had there been
a tunnel at Dover at this time, and
had the alarm been a real one, nothing could have stopped an enemy
from landing a force and seizing the
mouth of the tunnel. The sea, of
course, is suitable for conveying men
quickly over the Channel, for when
there is ,1 fog there is almost always
a calm.
"Thus from a military point of
view I regard the tunnel as impossible," Sir Evelyn continued, "and I
believe that the military authorities
are practically unanimous on this
point. A tunnel would expose us to
constant and unnecessary danger. To
permit it to be built would be deliberately to destroy our most valuable
line of defence—the sea."—Reprinted
from "Overseas Mail."
The Motor Voice.
The tennis elbow, the bicycle foot,
the clergyman's sore throat, and all
manner of disabilities that come from
modern conveniences are familiar to
us. The motor-omnibus voice was
discovered by a young woman who
was riding outside a motor-omnibus,
and trying (as is her habit) to talk.
And the horrible truth suddenly flashed on her mind, and from her lips .
. . . "I c-c-can't keep-pip-pip my
voice sut-tut-till."—The Reader.

Vancouver
Notes.
Now that the elections are over and
The   Guardian   has   ceased   to   exist,
even the North King has taken cognizance of the fact and given us ideal
rainy weather that makes  the average Vancouverite    feel  perfectly    at
home again.    Those with the sporting  instinct    who    wagered  on  the
"Grits"  have    been    mourning their
losses  and  the haberdasher  has  for
the nonce reaped a goodly return in
the disposal of much headgear. Speculation of course is rife as to who will
be in the next Cabinet and the voice
of the people here is emphatically in
favor of suitable recognition of Wm.
Bowser, who so enthusiastically supported the  cause    of    Mr.  McBride
throughout the Province.   No one is
more  entitled  to a  cabinet  position
and both Tory and Grit alike, are desirous of seeing him in office at the
Capital.
The Chehalis Case.
The end of the week finds Mr. Justice Martin and Commander J. T.
Walbrau and Capt. James D. Warren sitting with him as nautical assessors, busy with the hearing and
the Chehalis suit of Bryce vs. the
C. P. R., involving a total damage
claim of over $75,000. Many eminent counsel are engaged and the case
promises to be a lengthy and bitterly
fought one. For the plaintiffs—this
being thc test action for the eight
cases for damages for the loss of relatives in the Chehalis disaster—will
appear Mr. W. J. Bowser, K. C, Mr.
Joseph Martin, K. C, Mr. Peters, and
several assisting solicitors, while for
the C. P. R. will appear Mr. E. P.
Davis, K. C, Mr. E. V. Bodwell, K?
C, Mr. E. J. McMullen, and assisting
solicitors.
No County Court Judge.
Since the    resignation    of County
Court Judge Henderson, the Minister
of Justice has so far made no appointment to fill the vacancy and as
a consequence legal business in this
court is tied up. Who the new justice will be is hard to surmise. As
was published by Thc Week there is
no lack of applicants, and each is
using every means to secure the job,
which carries $300 per month and
expenses. Mr. Baxter has been offered the position, but is said to have
declined. Meanwhile the wheels of
justice are not turning and those who
are looking for speedy trials in the
local county court are denied their
rights and perforce must linger in
the bastile awaiting the pleasure of
the   Ottawa   Government.
Want Increased Salaries.
At last night's session of the School
Board a request was made by the city
teachers for an all-round increase in
their    salaries.     The    request    will
doubtless receive the serious consideration of the board, for, as it has
been pointed out, the stipends of the
superintendent and assistant superintendent have already    been    raised,
while the teachers have received no
consideration.   In an interview on the
subject one of them  said:    "British
Columbia is acknowledged to have the
finest public educational  facilities in
Canada,   and   Vancouver   the   best
schools   in   the   Province,   yet the
teachers, considering the difference in
living expenses between the East and
the West, are the poorest paid in the
Dominion.   If many of the teachers
did not live at home or have an independent income, they would be in
a bad plight.   Forty dollars a month
is not a living wage in Vancouver.
The city is prosperous, and we certainly think that those who have the
care of the education of young Vancouver should be entitled to share in
the prosperity."
Championship Pool.
At Con's billiard parlors on Cor-
dora street, a tourney is in progress
that will decide the possession of a
gold medal carrying with it the championship of British Columbia. American fifteen-ball pool rules govern
the contest. Many local pool experts
have entered, among them being
George Williams, the present champion, and W. Cavanaugh, who is bent
on wresting the honor from him. The

Annual Meeting.
Tuesday evening next at the Club
Rooms, will be held the annual election of officers of the Vancouver Conservative Club, at which also a financial statement covering the past year
will be submitted. The Club has an
active membership of over 400, and
the time is believed to be ripe when
steps should be taken to enlarge the
membership and move into more
modern and suitable quarters, where
all the real comfort and conveniences of club life may be obtained.
There should be little difficulty in
enthusing the members to be up and
doing, so that the social life may be
made more pleasurable and thereby
attract a larger membership to the
ranks  of  the  party.
At the Play-House.
Several splendid attractions are on
the bookings of the Vancouver Opera
House,   commencing   Tuesday   with
Miss Isabel Irving, the young American actress, who will be seen in the
new   play,   "Susan   In   Search   of   a
Husband," from the  pen of Jerome
K. Jerome.   The   personnel numbers
several   excellent   players,   such   as
Hassard   Short,   Herbert   Standing,
Marie Wainwright, Ernest Mainwaring, Jessie Izett, A. G. Andrews and
one or two others.   Each one of the
above mentioned   have   laid a firm
foundation    of artistic    ability,    and
each  one  has  some  peculiar  talent
that has made them stand out above
the rest.   Miss  Irving    herself is a
graduate of those two famous schools,
the Augustin Daly Company, and the
Lyceum Theatre Company.
Music lovers    are    anticipating a
treat on the 22nd, inasmuch as it will
mark the inauguration of the American tour of a company including three
celebrities,  each   of whom  has won
countless  triumphs  as  an  individual
star of the musical world.    Incidentally  the  Vancouver  performance   of
this illustrious musical trinity marks
also the real debut of C. H. Gibbons,
an   ex-newspaperman   of   this   city,
among the important concert managers of Canada, although he has had
some prior experience as an impresario, as director of the engagements
of Jean Gerardy, the great cellist, who
was  here last April, and the  Jessie
Maclachlan company, which played to
an overflow house in mid-November.
The   company  which   Manager  Gibbons is now conducting through the
cities of the  coast is composed of
Frieda Stender,   coloratura   soprano;
Otie Chew, violiniste, and Herr Thilo
Becker, late of Leipzic, and for the
past six months of Los Angeles, Cal..
who is recognized as standing foremost among the piano virtuosi of the
coast.
The coming attractions and dates at
the Opera House are as follows:—
Feb. 12th—"Susan in Search of a
Husband."
Feb. 14th—"Uncle Tom's Cabin."
Feb. 15th—"County Chairman."

ELECTION ECHOES.
A well-known railway man has expressed the opinion that, if the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway encounter many more snow-slides like
thc one they met last Saturday, they
will have to construct a continuous
line of   snow-sheds   all through   the
Province.

The prominent activity around the
Victoria polls last Saturday of an
official of the Dominion Department
of Marine excited much unfavourable
comment.

According to the Victoria Times
of Monday last, it was Sir Wilfrid

One of the defeated Victoria candidates has attracted no little attention by the terrific roar he has been
making, because   hc    says Returning
Officer Price was late in opening the
poll  on last Saturday.    The screech
of the defeated one was so prolonged
that an  investigation  as  to its  true
cause has been set on foot.   It now
turns  out  that  the  worthy  defea
candidate—a man of the purest
tives and the  most upright minj
had a large  bunch of voters wh
ballots hc desired to have cast be!
the  two morning trains  got  out
the city.   The  bunch  were  to 1<
by these trains and poll another gj
vote at various up-island points,
scheme was a  neat one, and ev»]
body is laughing at  its  failure,
at  the  childis  hchagrin  of   the
tuous daddy of the plot.   The
alty,   of  course,   is  very   severe
this sort of thing.
