THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST a8, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
The property owners of
/.atch Viuoria Victoria have taken the
jrowi lii-st   step   to   emancipate
themselves from the condi-
lion of lethargy which lias characterized
Iho city for so many years, and whicli
lias gained for it such an unenviable notoriety among ei_.Tget.ie business men.   So
Iji'ononnced had this feature become that,
[.he city was regarded by outsiders simply
lis a place to settle down in.    Its attractive climate aud its many natural beauties
Ivere conceded on all hands, but when pus
talked of enterprise or growth people were
lipt to smile, and Vancouverites in particular positively chuckled.    That day has
gone  by.    its death  knell   was sounded
lour years ago, wdien the influx from the
|.\( 1 rthwest and the interim' began, and. the
credit for arousing the -. apital (ity of
the Province to a. sense of its duties and
■possibilities   is mainly due to the   newcomers.    'They  have  beeu   confronted  at
every turn by the old timers, who wished
Ito keep things as they were, and who conscientiously   blocked    every    progressive
(measure, but the men of energy were nol
Ito be denied, and by persistently hammer-
ling they have made an impression.    The
[result was seen in Thursday's vote on the
'.Ionian Kiver agreement,  which  protects

and  ensures the expenditure of at least
[$:_,00(l,000 within the next two or three
[years 011  the development of power, and

Ion almost "ad nauseam" during the last
[few weeks, suffice it to say that for tin'
[first time Victoria will have abundance of
[electrical energy for all purposes; and the
li. C.,E. li. will be able to branch out into
the surrounding country and convert the
I Saanich Peninsular into a populous tbriv-
'ing district.    The possibilities are almost
'unlimited, but that they wilh be realized
ino one who has watched the growth of
Vancouver eau doubt.    It has been said
1 tliat Thursday's vote practically represents
a vote of confidence in the 1!. C.  E. Ii;
and a vote of censure 011 the City Council.
; Tbe Week believes that this is a fair characterisation,
I Turned
Down.
Victoria has turned dowu
the Water By-law, and has
resolved by a majority
which would have been
largely increased if a popular vote had
been taken, that it, will have no dealings
with the Esquimalt Waterworks Company.
The reasons for this attitude towards a
by-law, which in' itself would have turned
out an excellent, bargain for the City is
to be sought in several directions. The
main contributing factor to its defeat was
the unshakable conviction that the proposition involved graft, and no amount
of argument could remove if. Whatever
may have been the case in the past The
Week is convinced that this is a false conception. The Esquimalt Waterworks
Company lobbied against* the new clauses
which were passed last session granting expropriation, in the most determined and
persistent manner. They bitterly assailed
the Government for consenting to those
clauses, and declared that expropriation on
the terms mimed was practically co'u'hsc'a-
tjion. Only a few months ago they b.ir-
rowed $500,000 to extend their system in
the   Saanich   district  and   to   Oak   Bay.
They were looking 10 establish themselves

hail everything to gain and nothing lo
lose by building tip iheir system. .1 hey
would insure a largely increase.I revenue
in the future, and a greatly enhanced profit, if at any time the eity wished to bay
them out. In short, tne* defeat of Ine
liy-law consolidates tneir position. More***
over, all who were working during the last
week know that the Esquimau wafer-
works 1. ompany conducted a diligent canvass, and exerted every influence fit defeat thi' liy-law. Now. by what process
of reasoning the citizens concluded that
their interests lay in helping the Esquimalt I.ompany to do this passes the comprehension of any thinking man, but they
did, and that leads to the inevitable
conclusion that there is a good deal in
flic common rumour that the citizens have
lost all confidence in ' the Council; and.
voted down the By-law because they would
not trust their representatives to expend
the money, and handle the proposition.
This reason was assigned by many people,
aud undoubtedly the record of the Council
justified it. Seeing that the defeat was a
narrow one The \\ook lias ho hesitation in
saying that if fhe members of the Council
had got out and worked with half th;.' zeal
displayed by ilie Board of Trade fhe Bylaw would have carried, bid the members
showed themselves to be cowards. They
had an eye on the next municipal election,
and knowing that the By-law was unpopular with the rank and file refused to prejudice tlieir chances by supporting it. The
only member of the Council, except rhe
Mayor, who had the courage to lake the
public platform in its support was Alderman Stewart, and yet every member who
supported it iu the Council was in duty
bound to work for it in the City. The
expropriation clauses were granted by the
Government at the express request, of the
Council, and the members stunfihed their
own action by practically allowing the Bylaw; to go by default. The outlook for fhe
future is anything but bright. The city
will get water, and get all the water it
wants, but it will pay for if through the
nose. The ratepayers will never entrust
a Council of the calibre of fhe present one
with the carrying out of the Sooke scheme,
and the city will inevitably fall into the
hands of the Esquiinalf Waterworks Company for its supply. It will pay as much
for thai supply as would have sufficed to
expropriate the whole proposition ami then
it v,ill own nothing. Sometime in the future ii will buy out all the water projects
within reach, aud will pay for them. The
people of ihal generation will bless the
..people of 100!) who missed the opportunity, nol of a life-time but of a generation, 'lire Council has resented the criticism levelled al il by lhe local press, aud
the .Mayor in particular has been restive,

any degree of frankness the result might
have b 'en different, lie promised the city

this is due to the fact that it has been repaired to the height of the present wafer
level, and thai it will leak worse than
ever when if is filled, even if it bears fhe

not lhey should at least be relegated to

An Ottawa dispatch, pub-
A Disquieting LisbeU in the local press,
Rumour. announces that* Mr. Dunsmuir will shortly be relieved of the Lieutenant-Governorship and
will be succeeded by .Mr. W. C. v.olls.
The Week hopes that there is absolutely
uo foundation for this report; Tbe only
qualification which Mr. Wells possesses for
tue oflice is money, and bin for this his
ciiance of getting the position would not
he one in a million. Mr. Duusmuii' has
made an admirable Lieutenant-Governor,
and has been most ably supported in rhe
ollice by his charming wife and daughters.
They have set a standard for hospitality
at Government House which will not be
exceeded for many years 1 their invariable kindliness and courtesy have endeared thein to all with whom they have
come in contact. On every ground Mr.
Ihinsnniir has justified his appointment,
and The Week will always be gratified at
the reflection that it was the first paper
fo suggest and support his appointment.
After such a regime as he has established
it will not be easy for Victoria to accommodate itself to a successor of lhe calibre
of Mr. Wells, who is a pol-hunting politician of the commonest type. Indeed
The Week can scarcely credit thai lhe
rumour of his appointment is well grounded, and hopes that if is not loo late, even
at the eleventh hour, for an oulspoken
public opinion lo save the Province from
such a fiasco as ii would involve.
its opinion, aud makes the amazing statement thai for subtlety of intellect, and
reasoning power, even Mi. Halfour does
not compare wiin tlie Liberal trio mentioned, well, all this may be a matter of
opinion but it is a strange opinion to be
held by a Conservative paper, and it is
stranger still to find any man 01 intelligence uenying subtlety ot intellect, aud

admittedly oue of fhe greatest philosophers
of tae times, and whose contribution to the
lifeiatiire of philosophy and religion rank

critics. However, let that pass. What
will Englishmen all the world over say of
the ignorance and the exeerapablo taste
displayed in dragging our late beloved
(.-Jheen Victoria and the present King into
the political arena, i.et fhe Colonist has
ventured te say that the Kiug should be
classed as a Liberal and Queen Victoria
as a life-long Conservative. Evidently the
editor of lhe Colonist has never heard of
The Queen's Letters, recently published,

■-lie was deeidedly more Liberal in her
leanings than was generally supposed.
I ler personal preference fbr Lord Beaconsfield, and her known dislike tor Mr. Gladstone, may havo led colour io the supposition thai her attitude towards these two
great men indicated her political views,
bill any sucn notion was dispelled by her
letters; f.u'd it is not only a gross iin-
jiem ill ence hut au inexcusable breach of
etiquette even to suggest party-bias in such
a uuit'tOT. \\ilh respect lo rhe King his
private views are bis own, but he has
never manifested the slightest partiality
for either political party. Indeed although
he look such an active part in public affairs while Prince of Wales, extending
over many years, il was a matter of general comment in the highest circles that
he came to the throne without ever having
revealed his political tendencies. The
Week has no wish to be unduly severe,
especially in its criticism of a fellow
editor, bid ii does protest against the inconsistency of a Conservative organ allowing i I self to he made the vehicle for enunciating in its editorial columns the most
radical and Socialistic views, and especially iu continued misrepresentation of English public men and affairs; but it is the
last, straw when Queen Victoria and fhe
King are made lhe subject of ill-informed,
if not insulting comment.

P By THB LOUNGER (*
*^-^/M^^-W)(Wt^/lj)
The subject of racing and betting
continues to be a live topic in Vic-I
toria, and now that our own r.ie*_*
meet is removed by a decent interval
it is possible to look at it a utcie*
more clearly., .veadcrs of this coln..i,. j
know that I favour racing, and that
wmle 1 am opposed to many io.iii- !
of gambling I do not trunk tnat u ..-,
a venal offence to make a smull Let o.i
a horse race; personally 1 have hevei
exceeded the most modest venture in
tms connection. When tne Country
Club lirst announced its intention of
holding' a race meeting here I took
very definite ground, i said tnat tlie
.success ami e\eu tlie continuance c,
a meeting would depend on good
management and a square ileal iur
the public, and I believed tnat t.ie
local stewards were gentlemen w.m
would see tnat sucn conditions were
complied with.
Now that the meeting is over I
want lo say that they did their best
and on the whole succeeded, but their
success was not absolute and this was
largely owing to the difficulty of controlling the professional element.
Every ,man wdio bets on a race course
knows that he takes certain chances,
and I do not know of any system by
which those chances can be eliminated, although I do know of a system by which they can be minimized.
Everything depends on the absolute
-integrity and capability of the officials. Tiie starter and the judges
must be above suspicion, and must
be prepared to visit with strict punishment any dishonest conduct which
comes under their notice, it is notoriously difficult to control tne
jockies, because tiieir temptations
are very great. A dishonest bookmaker, or owner, has only to pay a
jockey enough to make it worth his
while to "throw" a race. Obviously
the remedy for this is entirely in t.ie
hands of the starter and the judges,
and if every proved ease was dealt
with on the same principal as the
ease of Tod Sloan in England something pretty near to a cure would be
effected. •
At the Vietoria meet some jockies
were punished but in my opinion the
punishment was totally inadequate.
There were glaring instances wnic.i
were either allowed to pass unnoticed,
or which were practically compromised. Archibald, the popular jockey,
was guilty of a vicious ride during
the last week by which he robbed another horse of a certain win. As a
concession to public opinion the
judges' fined him $100. Now it would
appear to any reasonable man that if
his offence was sufficiently severe to
call for a $100 fine the logical result
should have been to award the race
to the other horse. This is where
the public would have been protected,
but nothing of the sort was done. A
few instances of this kind, culminating in the Fantastic-Barney Oldfield
fiasco, where Judge Skinner deliberately fooled the public, left a very
unsatisfactory impression of his fairness, and his exploits at Minora Park
on tiie opening day, which are dealt
with at length in a special letter from
"Max" on another page convince me
that he should never be allowed to
officiate in Victoria again. I know
that this opinion is shared by some
of tiie directors and 1 therefore hope
that at any future meeting it may be
found possible to secure a Canadian
judge who either has not learnt the
tricks which killed racing in the
States, or at any rate will not endeavour to palm thein off on Victoria.
1 hope the Country Club will accept
this criticism in the spirit in which it
is offered. It is made by a lover ot
tiie sport, who wants to see it conducted decently because otherwise it
will be short-lived.
I wish to congratulate the Superintendent of Parks on the splendid appearance of the Cook Street boulevard, and if others should share in
the credit I include them in these remarks. To have planted and developed such lovely green sward in the
middle of a dry Summer is an
achievement of which any expert may
well be proud, and one which in my
ignorance I hardly deemed possible.

There can be no question as to
what is a public utility when an outlying district like Strawberry Vaie
is installing a telephone service. I
hope tae inhabitants will not resent
my calling it a rural district, for that
is just how it appears in the eye ot
the City, but it is enterprising and
is living up to the spirit of the times,
ll is only a few months since Rbss
Hay enjoyed the privilege of telephones, and so the work goes on. I
notice, however, that in spite of the
extension of the system there is no
reduction in rates, and although Victoria enjoys a far better service than
most western cities 1 still maintain
that the rates are excessive. It i.->
this which .strengthens the demand
for the public ownership of public
utilities, and if the company is wise in
its day and generation, it will anticipate  the  demand by  removing the

BILLIKEN
BY BOHEMIAN.
A sense of humour is a saving-
grace, yet unfortunately all people do
not possess it. That is nut to say
that they will not be saved, hut it is
to say that their salvation will be a
harrow squeak, or to quote more clas
sical phraseology "As if by lire."
But then there are salvations and
salvations; I will not presume even to
refer to Ine more serious aspects of
a supreme topic, but rather to the
Humourous aspect of the subject
which has been brought prominently
to the public notice this week in a
letter written by a most excellent
lady to the daily press. This lady
sees in the growing popularity of
Billiken a source of danger to the
community. Because Billiken has
been materialized in the form of a
tiny image, with a pagan shape, and
a most ungodly grin, this good lady
with generations of godly ancestors
behind her fears that he will usurp
the position of tbe Supreme Being,
and that intelligent people at the beginning of the twentieth century will
fall down and worship him as a substitute for the Providence which, according to the orthodox faith has
hitherto "shaped their ends."
It is difficult to take such an argument seriously, ancl yet there is no
doubt that it was seriously meant,
and that the protest sprang*'from a
deep-rooted conviction of the dangers
and necessities of the case. 1 venture to take a different view; I think
the Billiken idea is an excellent one;
there is an old adage "laugh and grow
fat," ancl we all know that there is
a universal impression that fat men
are always good tempered and jolly.
Of course it is impossible for everyone to be fat; indeed thin people are
the despair of good housewives, who
expend all their culinary skill without
any apparent result. Jt is, therefore,
a goocl thing that fatness is "not in-
dispensible to happiness.
Xow Billiken is the material embodiment of a perpetual laugh, and
the verses which his ingenious creator has written, as an accompaniment to thc amusing little image, set
forth the idea of cheeriness ancl optimism. They may be doggerel, anil
may smack more of verse than poetry.
They may also be characteristically
American, but their genesis was in
London, ancl they are but a paraphrase, and a weak one if you like, of
Henley's immortal poem "On Circumstance."
Thc world has worshipped many an
idea but I have yet to be convinced
that this constitutes idolatary in a
religious sense. It would be as logical to say that the worship of ideals
is idolatary, but then I forgot, il is
not fair to talk of logic when discussing a matter with a lady, so lei
us hie back to an authority which
will be accepted without demur, and
remind the lady that her own Master
exercised his most scathing criticism
on the people who had long faces,
and who deliberately chose to go
aboul in a smiling world with a look
of misery.
I have long believed that chloroforming should not be confined to
babies, and sexagenarians. I would
make it the duty of the State to
chloroform every citizen who went
aboul with a long face, except under
circumstances of dire affliction. J am
satisfied tllat it would be a popular
measure, and I am not sure that il
may not be the outcome of thc Billiken cult. If so, the little pagan image
will nol have been popularised in
vain, for life is so strenuous that unless the world cultivates a spirit of
cheeriness we shall all become sour
and gray, and that would be a greater
calamity even than wearing a perpetual smile.
How Billiken must chuckle at thc
conception of "idolatory," and at the
idea that an intellectual, civilized people would abandon the perfect artistic ideals of Christianity to reverence
an uncouth chunk of heathen clay.
His counterpart is only lo be found
in Hindu temples, ancl for that reason I decline to believe that he is of
Japanese ancestry, although that intelligent ancl enterprising race might
well bc proud if they have given to
the world such a visible embodiment
of the principle of smiling optimism.
MINORU PARK.
By "MAX."
(Specially written for The Week.)
1 have followed the ponies for many
years, ancl have long ago concluded
that it is one of those habits whicli
cannot be shaken off. So that where
even the Hag is hoisted the votary
of the sport must go willy-nilly. I
believe that the desert of Tahara
would have no terrors for one who
had the jargon of the ring in his ears,
and visions of a string of thoroughbreds before his eyes. At least I
am sure it would not if he had once
braved the terrors of a journey to
Lulu Island race track. That starts
my story.
Alter sixty days' experience ol
what .Mr. K.' 1\ Leighton and lii.-
corps of assistants could do in Victoria, I felt drawn to sample their
Vancouver brand, especially as most
of the ponies had by this time become old acquaintances, ancl 1 fondly
hoped 1 had got on to their "curves.''
Of course the idea of gracing the inaugural meet of the Minora Club
with my presence never occurred to
my mind as a factor in the case, so
judge of my surprise when my entrance into the ring was greeted with
a cheer from thc bookies. .My natural
modesty led me to attribute this to
the same motive as actuated thc
"cook" in welcoming the "pigeon";
but 1 may possibly have been mistaken after all. However, that is another story, and I am over-running
this.
Ou tlie principle of "first catch
your hare, then cook him," I had to
ge tto Lulu Island before 1 could be
either "cooke'd" or "plucked." How
to get there was the question.
As a Victorian 1 had heard a great
deal about what the B.C.E.R. had
done for Vancouver, and today 1 had
a sample. Instead of packing a thousand eager turfites in these stuffy
coaches or cars which adorn their
system, and bundling us out in relays
of a hundred, they considerately provided half a dozen flat cars, on which
temporary, unplaned scats were improvised and over which sheets of
canvas were spread. These were
coupled together—not by the M.F.II.
patent coupler, but by connecting
links, allowing free play for each car
to avoid end-buffering. The side rails
were kept clown to a uniform level
of four feet so that it was quite easy
for a gentleman or a lady to climb
over. At the risk of losing my reputation for veracity I will venture the
statement that in this manner no
fewer than l.ooo persons got "on
board" al Pender Street crossing m
half an hour.
Then the one' o'clock, thc one-fifteen, and the one-thirty advertised
service all compressed into one "lit
out" at 1.45. The Lulu Island Express meandered from switch to
switch past the glories of Kerrisdale,
Royal and Eburne, stopping at all
vantage, points to allow the passengers to view the scenery ancl inhale
the balmy breezes, laden with the incense of burning brushwood, finally
pulling up at Minora Park at exactly
3.30. The ride was certainly cheap at
25 cents, the double journey. No one
■ould complain at two hours' riding
on an electric railway—iu new observation cars-—for iij/j cents.
But what of the ponies?* Well, that
had long become a secondary consideration, at auy rate with the travellers by the special. The first two
races had been ran, and I am sending an account to the stewards for
$.'5 representing the amount I should
have won by putting up a liver 011
Mr. Hose and Frieze, because they
were my Iwo sure things of the clay.
I was ju stin time to join Harry
in putting another liver on Beaver
Dan Lad at 15 to 1 and had the gratification of scooping in $75 from those
ironic bookies ten minutes later and
by this time I had forgotten the Lulu
Express, and everything hut tlie
blessed  ponies.
Before the nexl race I tool; stock'
of lhe track. It will be line some day.
but needs much watering, and a
deeper covering of soil; the clay surface will soon harden and bake and
make bad going for the gee-gees. 'I'he
tand is excellent, and the other buildings adequate when completed. 11 is
marvellous how much work has been
done, ancl clone well  in  two months.
The bell rang; for the next race,
"The Inauguration Handicap." On
form I picked Mr. Humblecht's beautiful black mare Monvina, which won
the opening handicap at Victoria, and
was due to repeat the trick. She justified my choice, romping home in
front of her field and never being
headed. 1 think Fantastic, Barney
Oldfield ancl Roalta are stale; they
never had a look-in. Anyway Mr.
Humbrccht is a thorough sport and
deserves all that comes his way.
The gentlemen's race I left alone,
but had a terrible shock iu the sixth
and seventh, and it came about in
this wise: At Victoria the judges
used an appliance which they called
"the angle of vision." It facilitates
the judging of close finishes, and for
the benefit of doubting Thomases was
photographed, and hung outside the
judges' box in Victoria. Xo doubt it
will be similarly honoured in Vancouver. It is intended to demonstrate
that "the angle of vision" is so deceptive that no oue outside the judges'
box can possibly tell which horse has
won when there is anything less than
hall" a length between them. You
may stand alongside the judges', box,
or crawl in front of it ancl sit Ijpwn
under the wire, but it makes lib difference—you cannot tell. Your eyes
must be exactly twelve feet above the
level of the ground, ancl immediately
under the end of the wire. Well, that
settled Burleigh in the sixth, and Miller's Daughter in the seventh just as
it settled Fantastic iu Victoria a fortnight today. But what can you do
when the man iu the box says Bell
Snicker, or Kelowna? Why, do just
as 1 did, three thousand others did
today—think it over.
Well, such a trifle as this did not
spoil the sport. We had the soothing reflection that our loss was someone else's gain, and anyway by the
time we reached Vancouver at 8 p.m.
we had enjoyed (?) four hours' riding
through the open country—two hours
racing—two demonstrations of the
^'deceptive angle of vision," ancl a
unique opportunity of studying human nature and equine beauty.
Yes, the Minora meet will be all
right—when it is possible to go and
return the same day, and to see the
finishes. As far as thc ponies were
concerned they ran up to form ancl
thc dope worked out right.
As Willie Had Observed.
"What little boy can tell me thc
difference between thc 'quick' ancl
the 'dead'?" asked the Sunday School
teacher.
Willie waved his hand frantically.
"Well, Willie?"
"Please, ma'am the quick are the
one tllat get out of the way of the
automobiles; the dead are tlle ones
that don't."

The Angel of the Household
IS THE GAS RANGE
In cold weather the housewife does not get chilled through and through while building up a wood or coal fire. In hot weather
a Gas Stove is not only a luxury, but a necessity. To cook with anything but gas during the summer months is to admit yourself to be
out of date.    A gas range does better work and for much less cost than any other.    You should not be a day longer without one.
The housewife will revel in the possession of a
Gas Range, appreciating the saving in time,
strength and worry, the cleanliness, accuracy and
healthfulness of gas for cooking purposes. Henceforth she will have no kindlings to buy, no coal to
carry in, no ashes to take out, no blinding, choking
smoke in starting wood or coal stove, no blistering
heat while cooking and no fear of fire from overheated flues. Early breakfast will have no terrors
for her, just as easy will she be able to get up a
late supper for unexpected guests. If she has a
dinner to cook which takes hours, she will set the
Range right.and she will find it hours later just
exactly as she left it.
A Gas Radiator or a Gas Grate forms a charming addition to any residence. Either is extremely useful to a lady or a man who ' batches," even
if only one room forms "home." A furnace may
be balky, or out altogether, steam heat may become
obstreperous, wood or coal fires entail labor in
relighting, but a Gas Heater is always ready with
the turn of the tap and scratch of a match. It is
a most economical apparatus, the expense stops the
minute the gas is turned off. It can be brought
into service in a second without work, so different
from fire-building. It will not only give the
required warmth, but will at once dispense a genial
air of hospitality. As a little heat is required
almost every day of the year in British Columbia,
a Gas Radiator, or a Gas Grate, should be installed
in every house.
You are most cordially welcome to visit our showrooms whether you desire to purchase or merely to look.   AVe will gladly explain
the many advantages of gas for cooking ancl heating purposes.    Easy payments if desired.
