THE WEEK, SATUEDAY, OCTOBEE 8, 1910
PORTLAND CANAL MINER
ie Week respectfully directs attention
page in the current issue devoted to
Portland Canal Miner.     The   page
cs for itself, therefore little need be
by The Week.    It hardly expected
, the publisher of the north country
t would have descended to the gutter
es of the lowest type of an advertising
.*;.   But the readers of The AVeek must
e for themselves whether the Miner
>r has not been the real author of the
ligeous and extravagant reports which
[ been circulated throughout the world
[which have resulted in so much loss
■disappointment to those who were de-
Id thereby.   The Portland Canal Min-
Imits that its statements have gone
laid wide, and have been largely re-
jible for the rush that has taken place,
tew of the official report of Mr. E. G.
lonncll, the Dominion geologist, it is
necessary to characterise the exaggera.
1 of the Portland Canal Miner.   As to
conditions prevailing at Stewart, it
lobable that tlie evidence of the Eev.
litevenson will be accepted as reliable.
J Week will supplement  that  with  a
Iment made two days ago by one of the
prominent citizens of Stewart who
led in Victoria.    In answer to ques-
he said that Mr. McConnell's report
leminently fair; that there are just
mining properties on which opera-
are being conducted; that the rest
le work in the district consists almost
lely of building roads and trails and
ling up dwellings for the winter; that
ligh grade ore has yet been discovered;
I at the present moment there are con-
jrably fewer than 1,000 people in Stew-
land that probably not more than 500
winter there  (the others, including
iPublisher of the Portland Canal Min-
are coming out), not 15,000,    as re-
led) ; that the fabulous prices realised
lhe Government sale for Stewart lots
totally unwarranted by the outlook;
I the Mann townsite is now on the mar-
j at prices averaging about one-fourth
we realised in Stewart; that while there
lonfidence in the future of the camp,
■fair-minded men realise that immense
rn has been done by the exaggerated
Drts circulated, which reports, as The
bk has now shown emanated from tlie
Itland. Canal Miner, and as this paper
published on the spot where the most
lable information could be obtained, it
Ihe less excusable that it should have
liberately set out  to  misrepresent  the
Its.   The Week was wrong in  saying
|t the harbour freezes up from Novem-
to April, and   regrets   its   error; it
luld have said that the mud flats whicli
erpose such an effectual barrier to ac-
(., are there all the year round, and that
high tides reach as far as Fifth and
Ith  Avenues  in  winter   and   summer
|E RAILWAY POLICY
_.ast week the subject of the Eailway
licy of the Provincial Government as it
lets Victoria and Vancouver Island was
bussed at considerable length in these
limns. The object of the article was to
|nt out the unfairness of the criticism
was being levelled at Mr. McBride in
Isequence of unavoidable delay in com-
licing actual railway construction. That
|cle mentioned several reasons which, to
fair-minded man, would justify delay.
Ice then the negotiations for an early
I mencement of work, which have been
Hnually conducted between the Govern-
f t and the Canadian Northern Railway
Company have reached a point when an official announcement is in actual course of
preparation, and will be given to the public
almost immediately. The Week is in a
position to state that the announcement
will assure a complete fulfilment of the
original contract without any material alteration, and with such changes only as
have been rendered necessary by fuller investigation than had taken place when the
contract was signed; but without any violation of the leading features of that contract. The announcement will show that
the Barclay Sound Eailway will be built
by the Canadian Northern and that the
route will serve the country originally intended to be traversed, being varied only
to secure better alignment and an economic
grade. These changes are necessary in
view of the larger project of a railway to
the north of the Island fore-shadowed by
the Premier during the last electoral campaign, and now practically assured by subsequent negotiations. The work-shops and
terminals of the Company will be in Victoria as promised, the fast ferry will run
from the Mainland to Victoria as promised, and Victoria will be the actual terminus, at the southern end, of any railway
constructed by the Canadian Northern on
Vancouver Island. This announcement
will remove the unworthy suspicion, so industriously voiced by the Liberal Press,
that Mr. McBride was going to consent to
the abandonment of the Barclay Sound
Eailway, and to the side-tracking of Victoria. Further comment is unnocessary,
except to point out that the few weak-
kneed Conservatives who allowed themselves to be stampeded into a condition of
fretfulness and futile irritation by their
political opponents would find their milieu
rather in a kindergarten than an institution of grown-ups where back-bone has
been developed.
POACHING
There are several reasons why the daily
papers cannot with a good grace say much
about poaching on the streets of Victoria
by contractors and others. There is no
reason why The Week should hesitate to
wage warfare against a system which
greatly inconveniences the public and is
a standing reproach to the City Engineering department. One thing is certain
that Victoria contractors have been allowed to monopolise the public streets for
building purposes to such an extent that
they think they have established a prescriptive right to do as they please. It was
only after a prolonged agitation that The
Week was able to secure the removal of
barricades from the front of the Eoyal
Bank and another conspicuous building on
Government Street. But so far it seems
unable to make any impression either on
the Engineering department or a firm of
contractors who are easily the most truculent offenders of any in the city—Mesher
& Co. During the time that this firm Avas
building the Todd Block at the corner of
Fort and Cook, it occupied the whole of
the side-walk, the boulevard, and half tlie
street; as soon as it commenced work on
the opposite corner it proceeded to do exactly the same, with the addition of nailing a barricade across the sidewalk. Thc
consequence was tliat for several days, until the City Engineer was induced to take
action, this firm occupied the whole of the
street, side-walk and boulevard on both
sides of tlie double track of rails, and tlie
only portion of the street along which a
foot-passenger or vehicle could travel,
without climbing over a very inconvenient
foot-bridge, was along the middle of the
tracks. Tlie City Engineer had all this
incumbrance removed front tlie inside of
the street, but either he or Mesher & Co.
have grown ' weary in well-doing," for
they have resumed possession of the
whole of the east side of the street, including the boulevard and side-walk. At
the moment of writing this space is occupied to the very edge of the tram rail, and
last night ladies getting out of the Cook
Street cars were compelled to step into a
pile of sand and gravel, at least three feet
high. This deposit runs for the full
length of the block, 120 feet, ancl reaches
tlie car rails the whole distance. In addition the same firm is occupying half of
Mears Street for depositing its material
required for the same block. Now The
Week has no desire to hinder tmilding operations, and this complaint is not conceived in that attitude, but it is about time
that some respect were shown for the public interest. The condition of affairs at
the junction of Cook and Fort Streets has
been disgraceful for more than a year, and
at the present moment is dangerous. The
view of The Week is that it is the duty
of the City Engineering Department to
protect the public; experience shows that
it is hopeless to expect any consideration
from builders and contractors. It is certain that if a serious accident happens in
consequence of this neglect, as it well may,
the city could not be held free from blame.
The Week is informed that the same
firm is building at the corner of Douglas
and View where a similar lack of indifference to the public convenience is being displayed. Also, it is the same firm which
started out by barricading the side-walks
at the Pemberton Block until it was compelled by the new City Engineer to maintain a free passage for the public.
GRAND JURIES
Some people whose acquaintance with
the British Constitution is limited have
recently declared that a Grand Jury is au
obsolute and ineffective institution. Anyone who reads the report which the Vic
toria Grand Jury presented to the Chief
Justice on Thursday must conclude that
the time has by no means arrived when
the Grand Jury can be abolished \\ ithout
serious public loss. The subject of Mr.
Allen's terrible accident received their
their careful and exhaustive consideration; indeed, it may fairly be said Ihat
the case received such a trial as it could
rc-t have received at the hands of any
other tribunal, -md this entirely without
instructions and on the initiative of the
Grand Jury itself. In view of the widespread interest whicli this sad case has excited it is reassuring to learn that tliere
has been no miscarriage of justice, so far,
and no neglect on the part of those charged
with tlie duty of investigating such matters. It may bc a case of suspicion, but
the public now has the assurance of tlie
Grand Jury that there is no evidence
wliieh would justify a charge, and the suggestion that the only course left open is to
offer a substantial reward will no doubt
be acted upon by the Government. Another matter of the highest importance
dealt with by the Grand Jury is the indiscriminate and reckless carrying of firearms. Tt is intolerable tliat the country
round Victoria should be rendered positively unsafe by hordes of young incompetents who wander about in every direction
and blaze away without sense or judgment. During the shooting season every
day yields instances of narrow escapes,
und the lamentable death of Chester
Young should certainly result in prompt
and drastic action on the part of tlie Government.    During the present week the
e Dollak Pee Annum
press reported that a little girl was hit in
the forehead by a stray shot; a few inches
of variation and blindness or death might
have ensued. On Monday last a well-
known resident heard two shots at the back
of his house, which is situate near Pemberton Eoad; rushing out, he found a so-
called "hunter" and liis dog coolly retrieving a pair of quail from his back garden. No apology was offered; the birds
were recovered and the "hunter" walked
off. The writer of this paragraph was
driving through Beacon Hill Park at five
o'clock last Monday afternoon, when a
gun was fired exactly opposite the old bear
pits; the shots rattled across the roadway
and could be distinctly heard spattering
on the trees. The next moment a fine
cock pheasant ran across the roadway.
There is no doubt that the "hunter" had
aimed at, but missed, this quarry, and by
less than ten yards he had missed the
writer and his horse. Surely it is time
that drastic steps were taken, and the recommendation of the Grand Jury that a
permit should be taken out by all persons
wishing to carry fire-arms, that an age limit be fixed at sixteen years, and that tlie
applicant must pass an examination to
prove his ability to handle fire-arms judiciously is an eminently reasonable one.
THE LADIES' MUSICAL
The Ladies' Musical Club is to be congratulated on having furnished a splendid
entertainment for their patrons on Thursday evening. Now that the Musical Society is taking a rest music lovers are dependent on the Arion Club ancl tlie Ladies
Musical. The former is always reliable;
the latter is now demonstrating its ability.
Once more Tlie Week wishes to emphasize
the value of local talent; it is not to detract from the brilliant play of Mr. J. D.
A. Tripp of Toronto to say that Mrs.
Pooley and Mrs. Briggs excelled themselves and delighted the audience. Mrs.
Pooley's voice seems to increase in mellowness and she certainly never sang as well
as at present. Mrs. Goddard's musical
readings were greatly enjoyed, and Miss
Ethel Lawson and Mr. Edmonds established themselves as permanent favourites
with Victorians. Tlie Committee of the
Ladies Musical whicii lias worked so hard
to arrange and carry out a concert which
should be worthy of Victoria has registered a signal success.
THE RESTRICTED DISTRICT
The Colonist of October 7th prints the
decision of the Police Commissioners to
do away with tlie "Eestricted District."
The Week is not in favour of any policy
which encourages immorality, but having
due regard to the frailties of human nature, it considers that it is far better for
the community that the loose element in
town should be confined within a restricted
district. Tllis policy ensures direct police
control. The sad experience of AVinnipeg
should prove a salutary lesson. Manitoba's
(*apital removed the "restricted area" and
found her best residential districts invaded.
If A'ictoria wants a similar experience
then by all means pursue the policy proposed by the Police Commissioners. Already tlie large reduction in the denizens
of tlie tenderloin from some 250 to 70 has
resulted in tlio establishment of scores of
houses of assignation in different parts of
tlie City; witli consequences upon which it
is unnecessary to speculate. If this is a
plank in tlie platform of the Voters'
League tlie members cannot too dearly
express tlieir approbation. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8,  1910
At The Street
Corner
By Tiie LOUNQER
Last week I made a plea for the
resuscitation of Bobbie Burns in the
hopes that he might point a salient
lesson with regard to gum-chewing.
This week I would like to beg for a
modern William of Wykeham. Undoubtedly there is somebody needed
to teach manners in the AVest. The
action of one person in particular and
others in general on the Grandstand at the Fair is my excuse for
this petition. It is distinctly bad
manners for anyone occupying any
kind of a position at a public show to
obscure the view of those seated behind him, or her, by standing up at
the critical moments; it is worse
manners to refuse to sit clown when
requested by those whose view he is
obscuring; it is a betrayal of thc
pachydermatous exterior when such
an offender refuses to take cognizance of the many and somewhat
loud-tongued objurgations showered
on his inattentive ear by protesting
spectators. Yet such hippopotami
were in evidence in Victoria during
the past week. Of course, I realise
that no words of mine can penetrate
their hides; they are of the same
composition as those who provoke
my frequent shafts for remaining
covered during the playing of the
National Anthem. One reflection
alone brings solace to my soul, and
that is that so long as Victorians
themselves act in this manner, and
allow their visitors to follow suit,
they cannot wonder if the peoples
who live in more Eastern climes,
particularly those who frequent the
"effete Old Country," wonder how
their relatives can continue to live
in uncivilized regions where thc
modes and manners of "Thc Woolly
West" arc still supposed to I19ICI
sway. Since writing the above I
have been asked to call attention to
the frequent use of bad language
amongst spectators at football
matches. Last Saturday a friend of
mine escorting a lady had to leave
a Beacon Hill match unwitnessed for
this  reason.
I wonder how many people living
in Victoria know of the interesting
tablets to be seen at St. Paul's
Church, Esquimalt. Some kind
friend took the trouble last week to
let me know that there would be a
special service there last Sunday in
commemoration of the Harvest Home
and suggested that the Church was
well worth seeing, if only for the
tablets and other relics. I am
ashamed to say that the only other
time I had been in this particular
Church was in the evening, some
years ago, and that I had no idea
of the amount of interest contained
within its four walls. On Sunday last
the Church was very tastefully decorated for the occasion with thc
usual Harvest Thanksgiving contributions; there was a smattering of
sailors from thc Harbour, and the
service, conducted by His Lordship,
The Bishop of Columbia and the
Rev. Baugh Allen, was all that could
be desired. But I confess that it
was the tablets on the wall whicii attracted the greater part of my attention. Somewhat illogically, my mind
wandered off to my old friend Horace's remarks in the first book of
the Odes:
"Mc tabula sacer
Votiva paries indicat uvida
Vestimenta maris deo
Suspcndisse potenti."
And this was the more brought
home to mc, when, after thc
service I wandered round thc
Church and read all thc epitaphs. Perhaps saddest of all is
the life-buoy hanging on the South
wall; this is thc only relic of H.M.S.
the ill-fated Condor. Tn these days
of Ocean Grey-hounds and Mammoth batlcships wc arc apt to discount the perils of thc sea. A little
visit to a naval station Church such
as St. Paul's comes as somewhat of
an "eye-opener," and leads one to
think that there is something more
than   sentiment   in  the  hymns  dedi
cated to "Those at Sea." I had no
idea previously that there was such
good stained glass in the vicinity
of Victoria; there are some really
fine windows on the south aisle.
* *   *
Now that the Fair is over and
some idea of the profit and loss account can be conjectured, it may be
permissible to say a few words which
are not altogether coated with sugar
and honey. First of all, it is an undoubted fact that the number of persons passing the gate was less than
expected by the management. To a
certain extent this failure on the
part of Victorians to materialise may
be put down to the weather. But I
fancy that there is another reason,
and one which a Lounger may advertise without fear of hurting the
feeling of the energetic Secretary or
of casting blame on any of the directors. In a word: Why were the
manufacturing interests of Victoria
itself, the city within whose limits
the Fair was held, so palpably noticeable by their absence? We possess
a big soap factory; but where was
the AVhite Swan? There is some Victoria confectionery which is much
appreciated throughout the Province,
but where was it displayed? There
was a big stock exhibit, but where
were the harness makers or the
blacksmiths? Was there nothing to
be clone in this line? Again, let it be
remembered that Victoria is the capital of British Columbia; that British Columbia is famed the world over for its timber, its minerals and its
fish. Would not the casual stranger
have expected to see some evidence
of this potential wealth displayed?
But what was there? Two dried sal
mon. 'Twixt you and me and the
printer who cares for walls and walls
of public school infant drawings? It
is all very well for "Momma" to
show off "little Willie's" efforts to
rich "Auntie" who is expected to die
shortly, but there is not one person
in a hundred who cares a bean about
such things, whereas there are very
many who would thoroughly appreciate a timber exhibit, a good show of
Provincial minerals, or the life story
of a B. C. fish, such as they had
down in Seattle not so long ago.
These arc merely the passing reflections of a Lounger who has the
greatest admiration for the capacity
of men who could make such a sue
cess of an Exhibition as the past one
has been, and who would be driven
to suicide if he were called upon to
put his own ideas into practice.
Still, we are told that wisdom sometimes escapes from the mouths of
babes and sucklings; the moral is
obvious.
* *   *
One more remark. AVas it absolutely necessary for the side-shows,
etc., to begin packing up at sundown on the Saturday? Somehow
this struck me as being bad policy.
Lots of people don't think it an extravagance to spend a dollar on
Saturday, whereas the parting with
half that sum on any other day of
the week would be like losing a
tooth. It seems to me that there
was quite a little money going begging on that last evening of the
Fair.
*        #        *
SMOKE SMOKE SMOKE
Thc smoke nuisance on Government Street is getting to bc something more than a mere joke. If
every voter wcre to make things
lively for their ward alderman until
this disgraceful state of things is
checked there might be some chance
for relief. At present Victoria is
suffering from all the disadvantages
of a middle class manufacturing
town combined with the high prices
of a fashionable watering-place.
Whicii two features are incompatible,
to say nothing of their being inconvenient,—also disagreeable.
*     *     *
I have often cavilled at the newsboys of Victoria for selling their papers to some "fake" yell. "All about
the wreck," you hear; and when you
buy the paper you find an obscure
paragraph of a canoe being upset in
some out of the way American state.
So I particularly want to do justice
to one small boy who sold his papers
thc other night by shouting the truth.

It was wet, very wet, and the youngster came into the restaurant where

E-v-ening Times, all dry." And, by
George, he was quite right; it was
one of the driest numbers I have
ever read, and that's saying more than
a little.
* *   *
The fact that some years ago The
AVcck took up the cause of the shop
girls of Victoria and secured them
seats in various Departmental stores,
must prove the excuse for The Lounger finding fault with the "young
ladies" now presiding behind the
counters in some of the biggest of
our Government Street emporiums,
or should I say "emporia"? I have
many friends of both sexes who keep
me wise as to what goes on in this
gay little burg of ours, and early this
week two members of the fairer sex
bustled up to me in a fine state of
indignation. They been grossly insulted in one of Victoria's star stores.
On entering, they had observed four
"young ladies" very busy talking behind the counters. My informants
took up a strategic position just opposite the shelves where the goods
they desired to buy were situate. But
no "young lady" appeared to fulfill
their wants. To an elderly lady they
addressed themselves; with a vinegary air she referred them back to
the "young ladies." "Doubtless one of
them will attend you, madam." A
"young lady" came forward; "Oh you
want that? Well, one of the other
'young ladies' will attend to you."
Now that kind of conduct is not good
for the "young lady"; not good for
the customer, and decidedly not good
for the owner of the store. The reason for this discourtesy is not far to
seek. A large number of girls, having a good home wish to make pin-
money on the side, so that they may
make a big hit with "Chorley" next
Sunday. They don't care whether
they get fired or not; there are always other stores. New York "Life"
hit the matter off beautifully in a recent issue. Tableaux:—Four "young
ladies"; four dowagers wanting to
spend money, but neglected; four
handsome dudes and four very gushing "young ladies." I am glad to say
that it is only once in a blue moon
that I have occasion to visit a store
patronised by women; but my few
visits have taught me much. "Young
ladies," be more civil; it pays better
in the end, and it is more honest to
your employer. Customers, report
incivility; it is more honest to your
fellow-creature, and don't worry
about ruining the career of some fair
young thing. Employers, just do a
little more over-seeing, and don't
leave too much to your floor-walkers,
because you are losing money all thc
time.
* *   *
In the same connect-in it might
not be out of place to make a few
remarks with regard to telephone
girls. At one time people who came
from Vancouver used to congratulate
Victorians on their modern telephones
and thc civility of their "hello-girls."
Now-a-days Vancouver has the modern telephone and the difference between the girls is no longer obvious.
Verb. Sap. Incidentally, I should like
to know whether the automatic disconnecter is really in existence, or
whether it is only a catch-word in the
managerial circulars. Often, after
ringing off, one gets connected again
with the same subscriber.

MUSIC
AND  THE   STAGE
The Victoria Theatre
.During the week the Huron L. Bly-
n Company have been holding the
irds  at  the  above  theatre.  "Fac-
I the Music" is certainly a humor-
s play, and it loses nothing by its
terpretation at the hands of this
mpany. Mr. Blydon as Jack Smith
excellent, and he is well supported
his associates. By the time this ap-
ars this Stock Company will be on
way to Nanaimo, returning to the
pital after three   weeks.     Victoria
II be glad to welcome back this
pular company.
The New Grand
As contortionists the Carl Pantzer
o are excellent and are well worth
visit. Their act is distinctly humous, so much so that one is inclined
overlook the real skill shown. I
ed Harry Bloom's turn; he has a
od voice and sings well. "Two
.indred Miles from Broadway" is a
:iny little piece and receives the best
treatment from Campbell and
ites. These were the three fea-
es which most struck me, and
>m tiie applause they seemed to be
ones which most struck the audi-
ce.
The   E. C. Hunt    Company   have
n playing "The Rajah" this week;
has not suffered on its travels, and
more amusing now than    it   was
ne little time ago.    The Johnson
•eet   theatre   does   not   profess   to
t out Grand Opera; its aim is to
_vide  something  to  cure  a  fit  of
: "blues"; and in this respect it is
excellent  physician.    Next  week
appear one of the best on this
mpany's repertoire,    "The    Follies
1910" is said to be really good.
The Crystal Theatre
The Broad Street house was again
the fore this week with Old Coun-
- Sporting Pictures. Epsom on
rby Day and the 'Varsity Boat
ce were eye-openers to many who
.viously had thought that horse-
:ing and boating could be seen in
_ir entirety at the Exhibition
ounds or at The Gorge. Pictures
this description are an educational
on.
Romano's Theatre
'The Sheriff's Daughter" at the
ie of writing has been the big hit
Romano's. The other films dis-
nyed on the night of my attendance
e all good and in the best pos-
ble taste, but the one mentioned
as the one which particularly
night my fancy.
The Majestic Theatre
A  crowded   house  greeted  me  on
e occasion of my last visit to the
pular Yates Street Picture House.
The Prodigal  Son,"  a  modern ver-
011 of the old-time parable was on
icw, ancl  elicited    much    applause,
'here was a distinctly comic film on
ie   screen   during  thc   show.      Mr.
Christie  seems  to  have  learnt  what
ictorians want and to be in a portion to supply them with thc necd-
.1.
One criticism 1 have to offer which
pplics equally to Vaudeville Houses
nd Moving Picture shows. Is there
eally any demand for illustrated
(ings? In live years 1 havc never
ome across anybody who enjoyed
lem. Within thc same period the
nly songs I have heard which I
:ally appreciated were "Arawanna"
id "Napanee" (1 am somewhat
oubtful about the spelling). It is
ot the fault of thc singers, and it is
ot the fault of the film-makers; it is
ie fault of the "thing" responsible
ir the words, ancl thc "only just a
igree better than a thing" who
•ites the so-called music. Good
mgs with good music would be ap-
•eciated.

with Joseph E. Howard, America's

of the season to be offered locally.
"The Goddess of Liberty" comes to
the Victoria Theatre for an engagement of one night on Thursday, Oct.
13th,  1910.
Clyde Fitch's last and most powerful play, "The City," will have its
first local presentation at the Victoria Theatre next Tuesday, Oct. ii,
under the direction of the Messrs.
Shubert. The piece comes direct
from the Lyric Theatre, New York,
where the play ran for an entire season. Nothing Mr. Fitch ever wrote
resembles his posthumous work. It
was once said that he could not write
a man's play. "The City" is said to
be his answer. As the Evening Mail
remarked: "It seems a bit of irony
that the 'biggest' play he ever wrote
should have been the one he was
never to see acted."
Mr. Fitch has written an epic in
"The City." The play has received
more comment than any drama seen
in New York during the past twenty
years. The startling reality of the
story and the vivid manner in which
it is told, mark it as a powerful and
stirring drama. Even as a character
drawing, the author has done his best
work. It is treated as on cmfhscmfw
work. Truly Mr. Fitch said to himself: "The world is mine," and he
drew upon the vast resources of human nature as no playwright has ever
done before.
"Welsh Ladies Choir"
The "Welsh Ladies Choir" which
conies to the Victoria Theatre on
Friday, November 4th, will be a real
treat to all music lovers, as will be
seen from the following notice taken
from the Cardiff, Eng., "Western
Mail,  Saturday, July  13th,  1907:
"SANG BEFORE THE KING"
Madame   Hughes-Thomas   and   Her
Choir.
"Cardiff would not have been true
to herself as the Capital of Wales had
she not provided music on a most
lavish scale and of the very best
quality. No greater honour comes
within the scope of musical ambition
than to be commanded to sing before
the King, and every musician thus
privileged would probably re-echo the
witty sentiment of the late Dan Lcno,
who remarked when he was once thus
honoured, "His Majesty need not have
commanded him at all; an ordinary
invitation would have met thc case";
Naturally, a feeling of pride and delight was shared by Madame Hughes-
Thomas, of Cardiff, and her choir of
43 ladies when the Royal Command
was communicated to them that they
were to sing on board the Royal
Yacht. It is doubtful whether King
Edward ever before had such a feast
of music in so limited a space of
time."
New Grand Theatre
When DcWitt Young ancl his clever
sister, who appear at the Grand Monday, begin to juggle it is time to prepare for something wholly new. As
jugglers they are the usual thing in
title only. In performance they are
both unique. Miss Young is an adept
at throwing the Australian boomerang, as well as the cleverest woman
juggler  in  vaudeville.
T. Nelson Downs, is a past master
of sleight of hand and it is claimed
for him that hc has   no   equal   any-

where in the trick of "palming" coins.
He operates with as many as two
score coins at a time. Downs literally takes money out of the air so
that his audience can see him do it.
He is really exceptional in his line
and has thus far over the Sullivan
ancl Considine circuit proved a distinct feature.
It is a cheerful and at all times delightful musical hit that will be offered by The Three Imperials, Messrs.
Davis, Willis and Guhl. They are all
of them musical and all clever entertainers otherwise. They have a lot
of clean cut fun and keep their act
moving so rapidly that there isn't a
let up from curtain to curtain.
The Three Escardos are now five
weeks this side the Atlantic after a
run of one straight year at famous
Ronacher's, in Vienna, where they
were seen and immediately contracted for two months ago by John E.
AV. Considine. The Escardos arc
bounding marvels. By a peculiar arrangement of springs never before
shown in America they succeed in
keeping themselves in the air by far
the greater part of the time they are
up in front. Almost continuously they
are describing great, whizzing circles, tossing each other here and there
in startling parabolas and otherwise
keeping thc audience on tiptoe and
themselves in circulation.
With little Edward Cox and Gen-
ieve Farley it is just a case of two
kids, ancl rattling clever ones at that.
Little Miss Farley is a most engaging
vocalist and young Cox is a ripping
entertainer at all points. Both of
them dance in finished fashion. The

FASHIONABLE WEDDING
Mr. John S. Robinson and Miss Judith Phillipps-Wolley.
Thc marriage of Miss Judith Phillipps-Wolley, daughter of Captain and
Mrs. Clive Phillipps-Wolley, and Mr.
JoJhn S. Robinson of Lynhales,
Herefordshire, was solemnized at the
parish church of St. Peter's in the
Cowichan district, on Saturday, October I, thc Bishop of Columbia, Rev.
Canon Leahey, Rev. F. G. Christmas
and the Rev. A. Sylva White of Nanaimo, officiating, The combined
choirs of St. Peter's and South Cowichan were in attendance. Mrs. Sylva
White was the organist.
October sunlight and the gold of
thc famous maples made a pretty setting for a pretty picture when Mr.
Robinson, the bridegroom, arrived
with his friends, Mr. and Mrs. Walker of Tzouhalem (also from Herefordshire), and his best man, Mr.
Parker-Smith, followed shortly after
by the bride, Miss Judith Phillipps-
Wolley, and her father, mother and
the bridal party.
Two charming children, Miss Marguerite Waldy and Miss Inkie Ken-
nington, acted as bridesmaids. The
bride wore a costume of white serge
with white beaver hat. The bride's
mother wore a wisteria-colored cloth
gown with Oriental embroidery and a
white beaver hat with black under-
brim trimmed with wisteria blossoms.
The little bridesmaids wore white
dresses with white picture hats and
carried bouquets of pink roses.
After the wedding a reception was
held at the residence of the bride's
parents. The house was beautifully
decorated with white and pink sweet
peas, with an arch of wisteria on thc
stairway.
Mr. and Mrs. Robinson will spend
the winter in Herefordshire. In thc
spring they will return to Canada to
Mr. Robinson's home in the Northwest.

equally absent-minded.
He just orlered plain Mineral Water and was supplied with a
much inferior class of water to White Rock.
He wishes now that he had ordered White Rock and paid the
extra price for the genuine than have put up with a spurious imitation.
White Rock Lithia Water is not only fresh, sparkling and delightful, but "absolutely pure."
For health's sake, drink White Rock all the time, either alone

1INESE   LABOUR   AND   THE
BABY NAVY
To   the    Editor   Week,—I    wrote
me time ago about the wrong Sir
lfrid Laurier ancl Ottawa had done
their  legislation  to  exclude  Chi-
se.    Of   course   the   Premier   was
t the only one who thought   it a
oper  thing    to    exclude    Chinese
jour—Mr.  McKenzie  King had  as
rong  prejudices   as   any   man  and
r Wilfrid Laurier seemed to rely on
m.   The legislation was enacted on
e supposition that women and men
ould flock in to  fill thc gap.    Wc
ive  all  found  that    women    don't
me.   Of French   Canadian   women
o came you could count them on
c fingers of one hand. And of wom-
from thc Old Country you could
lect two ladies    here    who    could j
ve you the    history    of    all    who
ve    come,    each    individual    ar-J
•al has a history.    While the Chi-'
se who havc come and paid the ex-
ision tax a fair number have come,
owing the  badness    of    the    tax. •
omen  claim  and have  a  right  to
lect    their    occupation.    Even    in
igland, from which Sir Wilfrid no
ubt expected shiploads, the manu-
turers are taking their mills to the
men and so prevent    them    from,
ving  the  country  to  serve    elsc-
ere,  and  the  manufacturers  don't
ink you for    taking    away    their
ids.   The state of things here not-
hstanding thc indifference of our
vspapers is miserable. There might
some excuse for our city editors
lelp were not within reach.    But
here  in  the    world    could    the
ice required be so   readily    had.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier surely does not
impose the tax to make money out
of it. He must see he has made a
mistake ancl he ought to own up to
it.   Out  about   Duncans    there    are
•**»
farmers who have been there so
many years. They are chiefly connected with this British Army. When
Sir Wilfrid had his grand reception
here not a man of them came, instead
they had a picnic among themselves,
carried out amidst tlieir difficulties.
They had to be home to change their
clothes and attend personally to their
cows. Had Sir Wilfrid not enacted
this inconsiderate legislation, these
men might have formed an additional guard of honor, while he apparently knew so little about what we
can do with our baby navy, which
cannot be out of its babyhood for
many years to come. A farmer from
another district said to his sister in
town: "Here I have managed to
bring in two tons of prunes, but I do
not know when I can come to town
again. I can get no help with my fifteen cows. These are only instances.
I only know one man who says hc
really wants no Chinese here. This
gentleman has never had a home of
his own, but lives in a boarding
house. I do not come in contact
with trade unions except that now
and then I have to put my head into the hands of one, who employs a
Chinaman to brush me off. But I
am told that the Chinese who build
houses and shops never employ their
own countrymen to do either the
brick setting or the carpentry—but
they do employ their countrymen to
do the hodwork as English contractors do.
Premier McBride had a fire at his
house and it was supposed that his
Chinaman was to blame for it by
some accident. No one thinks the
worse of the Premier for this. Yet
he might speak differently at an election. Some of our best men have
been known to dismiss their Chinamen till after the election. A state
of things which leads to doings of
I this sort is nothing short of a disgrace  to  the  originators    of    these
j troubles.
I    In a former letter I showed myself
i dissatisfied with  Sir Wilfrid Laurier
on account of Chinese exclusion.    I
may be wrong about the evil which
may  come   to   us  from   leavings  of
I white labour after our  railways are
! built.    But  I know an Old Country
City which recently found the cessation of work a great nuisance and it
j may be here.    Obtaining and regu-
i lating the number of Chinese here is
easily arranged.    A gentleman could
I be found to devise a plan for either
. a limited or a large number, and for
1 their departures at a fixed time also.
j They are easily managed.
Mr. McKenzie King thought he
knew all about them, but he did not.
It is easy to be bold as a lion as
an imperialist, but a baby navy could
not fight much. The mother country
would havc to do all that for many
years.
I should like to add a few lines to
my letter. A learned professor has
written to enlighten us here about
Chinese labour. But wc have had
more experience here than hc can
havc had as to thc quality and usefulness of Chinese labour for ourselves. If may be a failure in othci
countries and with other peoples.
Thc newspapers in connection with a
recent event make out that we have
beeu robbed of a large amount in
head tax. If reporters think a little
they must scc that the probability
is these men would never have come
to pay the tax. Then another newspaper man in anticipation takes to
boasting as to thc probability of our
baby navy having some years hence
one of the fastest warships. This is
purring on baby's arm to please the
baby. Chinese labour and our duty
towards the imperial navy arc rather
serious subjects. Some one says
babies arc a fearful pleasure. Baby
navies  certainly arc.

THE PRINTER'S LOVE LETTER
I
(By Damon Runyan)
A printer man was once assailed
By Cupid, and his heart Impaled
With love's keen dart.
This printer ran a linotype;
One day he thought the time was ripe
To show his heart.
He said:    "I guess I'd better write,
Declare myself In black and white—
I'll send a letter.
But I'm so busy I can't think
To put ft clown with pen and ink—
On my machine I'll set 'er."
"Dear Maud"—this way the letter ran—
"I'd like to ask you If you can
Become   my   queen?
I love you like agenthbngyhsee—
Pn!:! -nthbz — 456thannthenuthbamboo-
tree—
Dahtnghamnthls machine!
"Excuse mistakes—I'm In a hurry—
I love you, clear, so con't you worry—
This I mean.
I love you like Rphiima; thghfworse,
Thangutmam thepthnabethen ahtcurse
This machine!"
Tbe maiden at once understood,
As any printer's loved one would,
This language dim,
A case of "pi," she knew, I trow,
Deciphered  It;   this  maiden   now
■Unices pic lor him.
Explained to Reuben
They were looking up at tbe latest
skyscraper. "Hut what are those things
.sticking out from the shies?" she asked
the up-state friend.
"Those? Oh, those are mile posts,"
answered  the Xew  Vorker.

Sensible   Autumn   Wedding   Gift
Suggestions
Nowa-days in Wedding Presents something serviceable and practical is
quite taking the place of a "frippery." This does indeed argue well for the
march of intellect. To us, the best gift is the one that can enter into life's
reality and lighten the care and trouble of each passing day. We do not know
of a more pleasing present to give a young couple than
A   Gas   Range, Gas Radiator   or   Gas   Grate
xv _
mom
A Gas Range will do anything that a coal range will
do and do it better, because the heat can be regulated to a nicety. No more backaches from lifting
heavy coal scuttles, no carrying of ashes or chopping wood, no washing of sooty pots and pans. A
good Gas Range would make them laugh at the
high price of coal.
A Gas Radiator or Gas Grate can be lighted in a
second—just a match-scratch and a turn of the tap
and the whole room will be well heated in a few
minutes without the bother of building a fire. Will
not only give pleasant warmth without any trouble,
but will decorate and beautify the home.
For a Wedding Present what could be better than either of these to lighten
the housewife's labor and build up the head of the family's bank account?
We can offer a Gas Range for $20, a handsome Englwsh Gas Grate for $15,
a Gas Radiator as low as $5.

GENERAL      SIR      FREDERICK
FORRESTER-WALKER.
(Re-printed from the London
"Times" of Sept. 1st, 1910.)
We regret to announce the death
of General' Sir Frederick William
Edward Forrestier-AValkcr, G.C.M.G.,
K.C.B., Colonel of the King's Own
Scottish Borderers, which took place
on Tuesday, Aug. 30II1, at Tenby from
heart failure, after a long period of
ill-health.
Tbe death of Sir Frederick Forres-
tier-Walker removes one who, although he had never come conspicuously before the public, had nevertheless done good and steady work
for a long number of years. The eldest son of thc late Sir Edward For-
rcsticr-Walker and Jane, lhe daughter of the sixth Lord Seaheld. he was
born in 1S44. and at the age of 18 obtained his commission as ensign and
lieutenant in the Scots Fusilier
Guards. After serving as aide-de-
camp at Mauritius he became adjutant of his battalion, a pnst which he
gave up nn promotion tn captain
and lieutenant-colonel in 1S73. For
the next live years he served nn the
personal staff at the Cape nf (lnnd
Hope, taking part during that time
in the expedition in 1875 to Griqua-
land Wesl.   In the Kaffir    War   of
1878 he served as Assistant Military
Secretary to Lieutenant-General Sir
Arthur Cunynghame, was mentioned
in despatches, and received the C. B.
and in the Zulu War of the following
year he was principal staff officer to
No. 1 Column and was present at the
action of Inyezane, and the occupation of Ekowe. He was again mentioned in despatches and received the
medal and clasp. After a short period of service on the staff of the
Home District he again returned to
South Africa to take part, as Assistant-Adjutant and Quartermaster-
General, in the expedition to Bechu-
analand under Sir Charles Warren, at
the conclusion of which he received
the C.M.G. He reached the rank of
Lieutenant-Colonel in the Scots
Guards in 1886; but an anterior brevet following on the army rank which
in his early days was given to officers
of the guards brought him up for
promotion to Major-General some 18
months later. After commanding a
brigade at Aldershot for nearly two
years he was at the head of the
troops in Egypt from 1890 to 1895,
ancl for the next four years commanded the AVestern District.
In 1899 it was found necessary to
recall the late Lieutenant-General Sir
William Buller from thc command of
the troops in South Africa, and Sir
Frederick Forrestier-Walker was
placed in charge of the lines of communication. This position is one that,
although it does not appeal to the
popular imagination, nevertheless is
of the highest military importance,
requiring constant and unremitting
exertions. It speaks much for thc
late general that throughout the campaign the arrangements on thc lines
of communication, to which at one
time was added the responsibility of
the defence of Cape Colony, were on
all hands aclmittd to have been excellent. Sir Frederick was fittingly
rewarded with the Grand Cross of the
Order of St. Michael and St. George,
and in 1905 was appointed tn succeed
Field-Marshal    Sir George White as

Delay in Construction of Grand Trunk
Pacific
The Toronto correspondent of The
Times has cabled that the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway has failed,
through shortage of labour, to let the
contract for the construction of the
section through Northern British Columbia, which may delay the completion of the line to the Pacific Coast
"for a year or two." This refers to
the 425 miles between Aldermere, on
the west, and Tete Jaune, on the east
of the gap, and Grand Trunk shareholders were duly informed at the
April meeting that the letting of the
contracts for this section depended
on suitable economic conditions.
These have not yet arisen, and the
extent of the delay must depend on
the date at which they come about.
This delay does not compromise the
Grand Trunk Pacific in its capacity as
a wheat-carrying road.
Last Buffalo for Canada
The final shipment of the herd of
buffalo from the Montana ranch of
Michael Pablo was made to Wainwright, Alta., on September 28.
This last shipment consisted of 100
animals, the wildest of the herd;
which the Dominion Government purchased some years ago. Every year
for the past three years a buffalo
round-up has been held on Pablo's
ranch, and the animals that have to
be rounded up this time are the ones
that have managed to break through
the corals or otherwise elude their
captives. They are the pick of the
whole herd and are strong, wiry animals. Howard Douglas, commissioner
of parks, has left for Montana to superintend the shipping of the animals.
At the conclusion of the final shipment of the animals he will remove
his residence from Banff to Edmonton, where he has established his
headquarters, and will then go on an
extended trip west to Jasper park in
the Yellow-head Pass.

Fruit in the Okanagan
It is estimated that over 500 carloads of fruit will this season be
shipped from the districts surrounding Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia. From present indications there
will be over 100 car-loads of peaches
grown for shipping. Summerland
alone estimates to ship 25 car-loads
of peach fruit.
The cherry crop is the best in the
history of the Valley. A great number of the fruit ranches last season
sowed cover crops as root protection,
and its beneficial results are seemingly demonstrated in the increased yield
of the orchards that were so treated,
ancl the estimated yield of the Valley
for thc season. Fruit men arc gradually learning more regarding conditions that influence the crop and it
is almost safe to say that such precautions arc being taken as will prevent the disaster whicii the severe
weather wrought upon thc orchards in
many of the valleys of British Columbia a year ago. More land in thc
Okanagan is being brought under irrigation, and this summer is witnessing much increased plantation. Farmers in general are quite jubilant
over the expectation of having a record crop.

the navy, would It be proper to address

'THE   WEEK" —JOURNALISTIC
SCARECROW.
The malicious and stupid attempts
of The Week, a discredited Victoria
political sheet, to couple the name of
The Miner with every "boost" article
regarding this camp published in
Eastern Canada or the Old Country,
bear the earmarks of personal grudge.
To charge this publication with sending broadcast the "most inflated and
unreliable boom literature" is as contemptible a falsehood as the untruth
he pens regarding the harbour, of
which he says, "is frozen solid by
November ist, or thereabouts, and
does not thaw out till March or
April." The Miner is not now, and
never has been, associated with any
publicity campaign having to "boost
the camp here or elsewhere, in the
sense suggested by The Week. The
ignorance of local conditions as outlined in the paragraph relating to the
freeing of the harbour is sufficient
to brand the editor of The Week as
a spiteful old hypocrite.

MAMMOTH REEF OF FREE MILLING ORE FOUNI
Stewart Being Depopulated by Rush to New Find—Sensational Richness
the Discovery Causes Stampede.
A mammoth gold reef unknown in
extent but traced for almost 20 miles
lies right at Stewart's door and according to mining men who, following news of the discovery rushed to
the location, it is the greatest free-
milling reef ever discovered in the
north and perhaps in the world. It
is undoubtedly the source of the
rough gold which can be found in
many of the streams but on account
of the boulders and the depth to bedrock cannot be profitably worked. Although the Portland Canal district is
now full of prospectors on this greatest mineral belt of all lay undiscovered possibly on account of its proximity to this camp. It is very easy
to reach and in consequence hundreds
of men are now trekking towards it
and it is stated there will be room
for them all to locate, for the great
white reef can be seen for miles as
far as the eye can reach.
It is purely a free-milling proposition and the first rock of the kind in
any considerable quantity that has
been found here.
The Location
News of the discovery was brought
down to camp Thursday by C. M.
Delgrove and Louis Anderson who
have been on the reef several weeks
prospecting. They kept closed mouths
until Clotheir & Ritchie returned assays of $49, an average for 3000 feet
and $6 an average for five claims. As
the result of the news the entire prospecting fraternity is now headed for
the south fork of Bitter Creek.
Delgrove and his partner were prospecting on the Moonlight group on
the south fork when they found evidences of free-milling ore. They followed the creek for miles and found
excellent float all along which had
broken off the reef towering 2000 feet
above them. They hurriedly prospected for the best locations but were
forced to return to camp undecided
for the reef seemed to be of the same
character throughout. Their prospecting extended along the south bank of
the south fork on what is known as
Bald Mountain, losing it now and
then where a glacier intercepted, as
far as the glacier into which the
south fork and Marmot river both
head. Retracing their steps they followed the reef back to the Moonlight
group through whicii it passes, then
across a corner of the property of the
Bitter Creek Mining Co., on over the
Roosevelt group and could still see
the same general formation on towards Mt. Gladstone.
Source of Placer Gold
The discoverers are certain that
they have discovered the reef from
whicii the streams hereabouts obtain
their gold and whicii has for ages
been supplying gold to the famous
Unak river and the Alaskan creeks.
"It is the greatest thing I havel
seen, and I have prospected in il
localities,"  stated  Delgrove.    "ll

PLACER CLAIMS ON BITTER CREEK
Prospector Who Discovered the Roosevelt Leads Rush to New Diggings-
Miles ot Creek Staked.
The mammoth gold reef which has
caused such a stir all over the world
and from which substantial assays
continue to come in, resulted in this
placer excitement. The gold in the
reef is free, to a great extent, and the
white quartz is leached out to such
a degree that the natural conclusion
was that Bitter Creek which follows
the reef for several miles, was the
receptacle of gold. Locations have
been made in the reef for probably
12 miles, the same character of ore
being secured on all the locations.
Many prospectors claim to have planned gold out of the rock, but there
is a difference of opinion as to whether it is a free-milling proposition.
Whether or not, development will
probably determine, and C. M. Delgrove and Louis Anderson, two of the
original discoverers, are now engaged with a force of men thoroughly
prospecting their own ground.
The  report   of   the   big  gold  reef
strike published in the Miner two
weeks since was responsible for several cables from England, besides a
string of telegraphic enquiries from
Toronto, Montreal, New York and
Chicago newspapers for further information. Harry Smith to-day received cables from the Daily Mail
and the   Evening News   of   London
asking for particulars, and Fral
Otter and the editor of the Miner J
similar telegraphic requests.

most distant properties.
PORTLAND CANAL
Opinion of Mr. R. G. McConnell, Dominion Geologist.
(Re-printed from Colonist of Oct.
4th, iqio.)
Portland Canal
"There is a very large area of mineralization in the Portland Canal district," says Mr. McConnell, "but it is
as yet premature to pass any opinion
as to tiie possibilities of the imning
industry there. With only two noteworthy exceptions most of thc work
done so far has been of a superficial
character. Owners of claims have
been mostly occupied during thc past
season in cutting roads and trails,
prospecting the surface, and getting
in supplies in preparation for winter
operations. This preliminary work in
a new region is inevitable.
"It  is  unfortunate  that  untruthful
ancl sensational reports as to the discovery of rich free milling gold ore
on Bitter Creek was sent out broadcast last June. Such practices should
be severely condemned as they tend
to depreciate the real merits of the
country. As a matter of fact the existence of free milling ore on Bitter
Creek has not yet been established.
It is true that specimens of free gold
in small quantities were found in one
or two spots. And the same exaggeration applies to the so-called placers on Bitter Creek, whicii has been
staked from end to end. If the gold
is there, nobody has yet tried to get
it out."
STEWART
The Opinion of Rev. W. Stevenson.
(Re-printed from Colonist of Sept.
25th,  1910.)
1 inquired again at Stewart about
the "mountain of    gold,"    ancl    "the
great white reef," and once more my
enquiry was met by amused smiles.
"It's a shame," was the answer.
"Wc havc the stuff here, all right,
and there is a great future before the
city as a mining centre. But so far
there is not much high-grade mineral
disclosed yet."
It was the same with everybody to
whom I addressed my questions.
There was no attempt to conceal the
disgust whicii men interested in the
Portland territory felt at the exaggerated reports which had been sent
forth. But there was equally no attempt to take advantage of the boom
in order to "boost" prices of stock, or
to send business lots up to inflated
values. At the same time there was
a note of strong confidence everywhere in the value of the properties
opening up for exploitation.
*   *   *
Aeturning to the subject nf my enquiry at Stewart. I asked, "What
about thc big rush? It has been said
that there has been an enormous
rush of people into the city."
"Well, there has been a bit of a
rush; but not anything like the 15,000
you name," was the reply.
"Has there been anything like
5,000?" I pursued, with determination
to find out how far the reports had
really exaggerated.
"I should say not. People around
here are not such fools as all that.
Most of the mining men know this
country less or more, and are fairly
well able to measure up these statements."
"Say," I continued with the least
remorse, "have you had an inrush of
500 during the last two or three
weeks, say an average of 150 a week?"
"Well, I guess about that; but, of
course, quite a lot of them were business men who came and went away
again."
"Then do you think there is room
for   the miner and prospector here?"
"Yes; but they should have some
money to go on with, and should not
be entirely dependant on what they
can cam. or dig out of thc ground
right  away.    You  see,  it  takes  time
to get things into shape for the
of mining to be done here; noti
that there may not be some If
strokes of business done by the 1
who knows where to look for
metal,' and who can recognizij
