| THE J.B.A.A. BOXING TOURNAMENT
On Wednesday night the J.B.A.A.
pulled oft' a boxing tournament at the A.
0. U. W. Hall, whicli, taken as a whole,
may be regarded as the best which has
been witnessed in the City for some years.
True, it had its ragged edges, but there
were at least three or four men capable
of shining in good company, and that is a
sufficient reward for any ordinary fan.
| ENQUIRY BY COMMISSION
The  Victoria   City   Council  decided
Wednesday night to ask the Provincial
Government to appoint a Royal Commission to enquire into all'matters in connection with Smith's Hill Reservoir.     The
Victoria Daily Times has made the demand that such investigation, if held, shall
not be confined to the Reservoir, but shall
cover other matters of civic administration.
The Mayor, after urging the enquiry, got
"cold feet," and is not now certain that
it is worth the cost.   The opinion of The
Week is that a Royal Commission is not
necessary, and would not achieve the end
Mined at, for reasons which will hereafter
appear.      Both    Colonist    and    Times
have coolly ignored the fact that The Week
was the first paper to take up the case of
the Smith's Hill Reservoir.   In the issue
of June 20th, 1909, The Week pointed
out, that whatever carelessness the foreman
and workmen may have been guilty of, the
blame for the leaky reservoir rests primarily with Mr. A. L. Adams, the engineer,
because his specifications were defective
and opposed to all the best practice.  Their
defects were specified, as follows: First,
that the sloping walls of the Reservoir
are too vertical.   Second, that no puddled
clay was used, although this is the only
material which makes a reservoir watertight.    Third, that Mr. Adams' specification was for a concrete, in which cement
figured  one to nine  of other material,
whilst the recognized English standard is
one to five.   On these three points there is
not, nor can there be, any difference of
opinion among competent engineers.     It
needs no investigation to prove that Mr.
Adams' specification is one which could
not,  under any circumstances,  have resulted in good work.    And this fact can
be determined by simply referring the specification to a competent authority.   Such
being the ease, it would be a simple waste
of money to spend $2,000 or $3,000 on investigating a matter, which can be determined in half-an-hour, by reference to the
i specification.    There remains the further
question of defective workmanship and on
this point it would be necessary to take
evidence.    Sufficient is known to justify
the conclusion that the foreman and the
workmen neglected their duty.  Mr. Icke's
statement stands uncontradicted; he left
because he knew that bad work was being
done.   The difficulty is not to demonstrate
the latter fact, but to place the responsibility.   The suggestion of the Mayor that
an absentee engineer should not have been
engaged has no force, because the chief
engineer rarely, or never, supervises the
carrying out of his plans.   While it is now
known to have been a mistake to engage
Mr. Adams, the mistake was not that he
was an absentee, but that, he was utterly
incompetent, a matter which could have
easily been ascertained in San Francisco
before he was engaged.    It is quite evident,  not only from the experience on
Smith's Hill, but in connection with all
civic work, that there is a screw loose in
the matter of supervision; there is no head
piece; no responsible manager. After Mr.
Topp resigned he told the Council and the
Public that he had been hampered by interference on the part of aldermen. Mr. Bryson, the assistant, and now Acting City
Engineer, had not been in harness a month
before he found that his instructions were
disregarded, and he was practically defied
by his subordinates. The Week believes
that the present muddle in all civic work
is due to this lack of authority in one
competent person, and the only remedy is
to appoint a City Engineer of sufficient
competency and calibre to direct and control all city work without let or hindrance,
and with full authority to engage and discharge all employees in his department,
subordinate to himself. If he abused his
position, he would naturally be "fired";
but nothing short of this constitutes management. As it is, the City "fires" nobody, however incompetent, because the
workmen know that there is no real "boss."
It requires no Royal Commission to ascertain these facts, which are patent to all,
and common talk on the street. What is
really needed is to give carte blanche to
the new City Engineer; and meanwhile
to discharge the foreman, who was undoubtedly guilty of neglect in connection
with the work at Smith's Hill. Whilst on
the latter subject, The Week would urge
that the Reservoir be repaired, and puddled
clay used as a water-tight material.
MUNICIPAL SYSTEMS
Mayor Morley claims that the present
condition of affairs  in Victoria  demonstrates that the municipal system in vogue
has broken down.    His conclusion is not
logical; any system of management with
a man of Mayor Morley's calibre at the
head of it would break down.   Every day
is adding to the evidence that he is utterly
unfitted for tlie position which he occupies.
It was hoped that after having been "sent
to  Coventry"  for two years,  he would
emerge with a chastened spirit, and a determination to serve the public interests.
But,  unfortunately, Mayor Morley possesses a spirit which cannot be chastened,
and in less than two months he has got,
back into the old rut, where he defies and
contradicts everybody, loses his temper and
renders the Council unworkable.   The reason of this is that Mayor Morley "knows
it all," that he is autocratic and vindica
five.    This fact neutralises all his efforts
and renders the work of the Council ineffective.    His present clamouring for an
investigation, and his denunciation of thc
civic mis-management of the last two years
is too obviously a thinly-veiled attack on his
predecessor.    Mis dissatisfaction with the
Council is occasioned by the very determined manner in wliieh the members have
restrained his aggressiveness and  checkmated some of his pet projects.    It is a
pity that Mayor Morley is unable to see
that it is he who is the stumbling-block,
and not the system.   He is a man of impracticable ideas ami impossible manners.
The present Council is, easily, tlie* best for
many years, and is capable of doing excellent work in the hands of a capable
leader.   Mr. Morley will never bc a leader
of anything, unless it be a "forlorn hope,"
and such a man will prove an effectual wet
blanket to the progress of any city.    We
are just on the eve of a development
which should lift Victoria into the proud
position to which her resources and environment entitle her. There could be no
more effectual means of preventing this
than by allowing Mayor Morley to plunge
the City into an era of fault-finding ancl
of bickering. If Victoria is to wait until
Mayor Morley evolves some substitute for
the present system, then, good-bye to prosperity for many moons. The Mayor has
made another of his numerous mistakes.
The fault is not with the system but with
the man who lacks the necessary qualifications to administer it, even when he has
a competent Council to assist him.
SINISTER RUMOURS
There are some matters which can only
be hinted at in the public press.   At the
same time they are* of sufficient importance to demand mention.    The Week is
not quite sure what steps ought to be taken
under existing conditions, but, if Victoria
had a different mayor it would not hesitate
to tell him that he, ancl he alone, was the
man to deal with the situation which is
becoming a public scandal, ancl for which
the Chief Magistrate of the City must be
primarily responsible.    This reference is
to the deception which has been practised
on the public with reference to professional gambling.    The Mayor announced
a few weeks ago that the Police Commissioners were stealing his thunder, when
they took credit for "putting the lid" on
gambling in Chinatown.   He said that he
had arranged this matter personally with
influential Chinese merchants, who had undertaken to suppress it.    What are the
facts?   The suppression lasted a few days,
and then gambling was resumed at all the
old resorts and is still plied with its accustomed vigour.   Who is responsible for
this.   The AVeek has reason to believe that
the privilege of gambling is paid for on a
fixed scale.   The public would like to know
who fixed the scale, who draws the money
and who finally gets it after all the 'divvying" is over.    In this connection, it would
be extremely interesting to know who got
it in 190G and 1907.    It could not have
been the Mayor, because he was pledged to
put clown all gambling, and actually did
close the  Savoy in  deference to a very
pronounced public sentiment.    But still,
gamblers continued to flourish, practically, without let or hindrance.    But, it is
not Chinese gambling alone which will furnish an interesting study in this year of
grace, 1910.    With the advent of a new
Mayor ancl a new Council, the white men,
who were running gambling dens were told
that   they . must   promptly   close.   They
obeyed for a few days, and then re-opened
cm a new schedule.   But those who calculated the schedule for the white men must
have been  poor arithmeticians, for they
came round a few days later, explained
that they had made a mistake and that
the scale would have to he raised.    The
white men "kicked," and closed their dens
of tlieir own accord.    Tn this connection,
The Week would like to know who made
the arithmetical blunder.    Then there is
another branch of an even more unsavoury
character which would repay investigation,
although, even here, a Royal Commission
would not lie required to get at the truth.
Reference is made to the restricted district.    It is bad enough, in all conscience,
to have to tolerate its existence, but The
Week doubts if the citizens are prepared
to sanction a system, under which certain
houses are purposely placed in the ownership of Chinamen, in order to save white
men from the consequences of law-breaking. It also questions whether the citizens
would tolerate a condition of affairs, in
which Chinese landlords are allowed to
charge at least five times a reasonable rent,
in order to be in a position to rebate the
bulk of their despicable gains to some
person or persons, supposed to be unknown.
These are the dark matters which have
been hinted at, but which, for the first
time The Week ventures to accentuate, in
order-that public sentiment may be sufficiently aroused to ensure steps being taken
to suppress the evils complained of. These
matters are of far more importance for the
welfare of the City than investigation into
the defective character of Smith's Hill
Reservoir.
THE HOUSE OF LORDS
Mr. John Redmond, as leader of the
Nationalist party, which holds the balanco
of power in the British House of Commons, ought to know what he is talking
about, when he says that there will be another general election in a few weeks.   If
this means anything but an idle remark,
it means that Mr. Redmond intends to
hold up the Government for a Home Rule
Bill.   It is certain that Mr. Asquith will
not yield, and it may therefore happen
that tliere will be another appeal to the
people, even before the much vexed question of reforming the House of Lords is
dealt with.    Meanwhile, it is interesting
to follow the debates in the Upper House
and to note the progress of Lord Rose-
berry's resolutions.    The contributions of
Lord Cromer, Lord Lansdowne and Lord
Curzon are striking and significant.    All
are opposed to the abolition of the hereditary principle, while all are in favour of
its modification.    The Week has always-
maintained that this principle would survive, ancl the chances now are, that after
the hurly-burly, the House of Lords will
consist of practically half hereditary and
half elective peers.   This will not diminish
its usefulness, nor cripple its powers.   Jt
will emerge from the conflict witli its constitutional  status  unimpaired,  and   will
continue to he an effective and popular
check upon hasty, ill-considered and revolutionary legislation.
THE POST-OFFICE ON SUNDAY
The Hoard of Trade delegation, which
recently visited Ottawa, and failed to recognize the status of Mr. G. II. Barnard,
their member, reported the probability of
some slight concession, in the matter of
procuring Sunday mail from the post-
office. The expectation still remains unfulfilled, but The Week learns that the
exclusion of the public makes no difference
to the staff, which continues to do just the
same amount of work as ever inside, while
the people are shut out. This is hardly
consistent. The Week would be perfectly
willing to forego the luxury of a Sunday
mail if it could secure a rest-day for the
post-office staff, including the sweeper-up;
but the present arrangement simply annoys without benefiting anyone, in which
respect it differs not greatly from other
actions of a very paternal Government, V

What an iniquitous thing it is that
a city like Victoria should give itself
away, as it does do, with regard to
the Causeway. I made mention about
this same thing about two weeks ago,
and I was glad to receive a letter
from a correspondent who had had
a bad accident on the Post-office end.
My correspondent who was a lady of
mature years, was walking up town
from the Bay; she was keeping in
close to the balustrade, and when she
came to the end of the latter, she fell
over. Consequently, she had to go to
hospital with a sprained ancle.
She suggests that the lawn where
the fruit store opposite the Post-
office, stands, be filled in. I do not
quite agree with my correspondent
on this score, but I do think that the
cost of erecting a railing from the
end of the Causeway balustrade to thc
corner of Broughton Street would be
infinitesimal compared with the advantage which it would afford.
Of course we need lights on the
Causeway. But, personally, I am tired
of asking for them.   We were told
in the daily papers about six weeks
ago that they were to arrive within
two weeks. Pittsburg is the town
from which they are coming. And
they are still coming. It is a perfect
disgrace that a city of the size and
standing of Victoria should allow the
Causeway to remain in the state in
which it is remaining. Lamp standards without globes; lamp standards
without lights; bah! the city is just
"bumming" on the Empress Hotel
for free lights.
* *     *
My attention has been called on
several occasions to the smoke which
issues from the King Edward Hotel.
I cannot say that it has caused a
positive nuisance in any of the neighbouring stores, at least I have not
heard from any of them. But, living outside of town, as I do, the
dense volume of smoke which is apparent, coming from the King Edward chimneys during the early part
of the day, is distinctly antagonistic
to the idea that Victoria is a purely
residential town.
* *     *
What extraordinary females arc to
be found in Victoria. The "Tally-Ho"
started running this week, and the
preliminary coach was packed with
women, at least, I suppose they were
women, who wcre blowing horns, tin
trumpets and other non-musical instruments. I hope that these people
all hailed from the States, as I
should hate to think that they eman
ated from any Canadian city. At the
same time, I have my doubts, because, unless my eyes very much deceived me, at least two of the petti-
coated crowd were members of Victorian society.
* * *
I have hurled abuse at the Immigration Building, and I still think that
from an architectural standpoint it is
hideous, but after having been inside,
T wish to make the "amende honourable." The fixings are excellent, and
I am seriously thinking of disguising myself as a Yellow or a Hindu-
coloured man to have the benefit of
living in the palatial residence which
has been erected. Because it really
\ is excellent. It is the first time that
I have ever said a good word for
anything which the Dominion Government has done, but now that I get
the chance, I am only too glad to
give the authorities their due, and to
say that the internal arrangements of
the new Immigration shed at Victoria
are all that can be desired.

I would call the attention of the
City authorities to the state of
Trounce Avenue. It would appear
that every person in the town walks
up the said thoroughfare for the purpose of discarding waste paper. In
addition to that there is a quantity
of filth of various character, which
eventually gets washed down to the
drain; there it stays. It doesn't look
pretty; it can't be peculiarly healthy,

Last Sunday night I took in tht
Band Concert at the Victoria Theatre;
it was the first time that I had been
there since the concerts started. And
T enjoyed myself thoroughly. I cannot conceive any person having any
objection to these Sunday concerts.
It is true that the house was crowded,
but I do not suppose that any of the
audience would have gone to church
if the band had not been playing. I
may be wrong, but they did not
strike me as a church-going crowd,
and surely they were far better off
where they were, listening to good
music, than if they had just "hung
around" town, and been breaking the
law, which is probably what they
would have been doing. Bandmaster
Sidney Rogers deserves the highest
praise for the way in which he has
worked up his band. Two pieces
particularly caught my fancy; one was
"The Drummer's Escapade" and the
other a special rendering of "The
Wearing of the Green." There were
many good solos, but what I want to
emphasize is the fact that there is a
really good band concert at the Vic
toria Theatre on Sunday nights, which
will appeal to those people who don't
feel like going to church, and at the
same time have no home to go to.

Do you know that beautiful song
which starts "Spring is k-h-humming;
spring is k-h-h-umming; spring is
k-h-h-h-um?" Of course it is all very
beautiful, and as the gentleman who
wrote in the Colonist lately, remarked, it is sweet to hear the voice of
the birds in the morning. Granted.
But outside my window I have a bird
with a bad voice. Exactly what breed
it is I can't say, but I should imagine
that it is a sort of bastard blackbird.
It has only three notes in its repertoire, and it reiterates those three
notes every two minutes from five
o'clock till I get out of bed, which
is about eight. It sounds very well
in books and papers, when you hear
about the twittering of the birds and
all that kind of thing, but it isn't
half so much fun when you come
across the original, the first thing in
the morning.

New Grand Theatre
The Berinis, who come to thc
Grand next week, are not only vocalists of a high standard, but they are
superior to any that have been heard,
in Victoria. To speak adequately of
these artists, they are a musical revelation. Their rendition of various selections from Grand Operas demonstrates beyond doubt, the superior vocal and musical qualifications of this
talented due. It is a rare treat no
music lover should miss.
For the first time in many seasons,
a singing, dancing, musical and juggling act will be presented at thc
Grand by Mier & Mora. They offer
one of the most skilful, artistic and
gorgeously costumed acts vaudeville
has ever known, and will be a sure
winner with the local vaudeville patrons next week.
A rather distinguished performer
is Ray W. Snow, known as "The
Man About Town." He had new and \
brilliant material and will be one of 1
the bright features of thc programme
next week. His songs are original
and his method is likewise.
There has been juggling acts of
all nature and kind seen in Victoria,
but none can compare with L. A.
Street, one of London's recent ex-
portations. He is a rubber ball
manipulator, who juggles, tosses and
catchen rubber balls at one time. Mr.
Street is assisted by a comedian who
brings forth numerous laughs with
his ludicrous faUs and original antics.
The bill for next week also includes Thomas Price, song illustrator,
and the moving pictures.

form you that I lunched at the Club
this afternoon and had as my guests
three gentlemen, all well known gourmets. Among other things an omelet
was served. It contained only three
flies. As an old member of the Club,
jealous of its reputation, I naturally
found this very embarrassing, as in
order to make an equitable division
of the omelet, it was necessary cither
to divide a fly—a nice bit of carving
as you must consider—of forego a
fly myself. T beg to suggest that in
future, when an omelet is served for
four persons, it should be either with
(a) four flies, or (bi no flies at all."

My two articles under the above
heading appear to have interested
some of my readers, and I have had
the following parody of "The House
that Jack Built" submitted to me. I
make no apology for publishing it, as
it amused me, and I think that it will
amuse somebody else. It reminds me
very much of those parodies on
"Twinkle, twinkle, little star," which
appeared in "Truth" some years ago.
If any reader has the original of the
one which started "Scintillate, scintillate," and would be good enough
to send me a copy, I should be much
obliged:
The New House That Jack Built
(Said to be by the late Chief Justice
Hagarty, of Ontario).
Behold the mansion reared by daedal
Jack.
See the malt  stored in many a plethoric sack
In the proud cirque of Ivan's bivouac.
Mark  how the  rats'  felonious  fangs
invade
The golden stores in John's pavillion
laid.
Anon with velvet foot and Tarquin
strides,
Subtle Grimalkin to his quarry glides:
Grimalkin that did slay the fierce
rodent
Whose tooth insidious Johann's sackcloth rent.
Lo!   now   the   deep-mouthed   canine
foe's assault,
That vexed the avenger of the stolen
ma-lt,
Stored in  the  hallowed precincts  of
that hall
That rose complete at Jack's creative
call.
Here stalks the impetuous cow with
crumpled horn
Whereon the exacerbating hound was
torn,
Who bayed the feline slaughter-beast
that slew
The    rat    predacious,    whose    keen
fangs ran through
The textile fibres that involved the
grain
Which lay in Hans' inviolate domain.
Here walks the forlorn damsel
crowned with rue,
Lactiferous spoils from vaccine dugs
who drew
Of that comiculate beast whose tortuous horn
Tossed to the clouds in fierce vindictive scorn
The harrowing hound whose braggart bark and stir
Arched the lithe spine and reared the
indignant fur
Of puss, that with verminicidal claw
Struck the weird rat in whose insatiate maw
Lay reeking malt that erst in Juan's
courts we saw.
Robed in senescent garb that seems
in sooth
Too  long a  prey  to  Chronos'  iron
tooth,
Behold the man whose amorous lips
incline,
Made full with Enos' osculative sign,
To the lorn  maiden whose lactalbic
hands
Drew albu-lactic wealth from lacteal
glands
Of that  immortal  bovine, by whose
horn
Distort to realm ethereal was borne
The beast catulean, vexed of the sly
Ulysses  quadrupedal, who made  die
The old  mordacious  rat  that dared
devour
Antecedaneous ale in John's domestic
bower.
Lo! here, with hirsute honours doffed,
succinct
Of saponaceous locks, the priest who
linked
In Hymen's golden bands, the torn
" unthrift,
Whose means exiguous stared through
many a rift.
Even as he kissed the virgin all forlorn,
Who milked the cow with complicated horn,
Who in fine wrath the canine torturer skied
That dared to vex the insidious muri-
cide,
Who let the auroral effluence through
the pelt
Of the sly rat that robbed the palace
Ian had built.
The loud cantankerous Shanghai
comes at last,
Whose shouts aroused the shorn ec-
clesiast,
Who sealed the vows of Hymen's
sacrament,
To him, who, robed in garments indigent,
Exosculates the damsel lachrymose,
The emulgator of that brute morose,
That tossed the dog, that worried the
cat, that kilt
The rat that ate the malt that lay in
the house that Jack built.
THE SMELTING INDUSTRY OF
LADYSMITH - THE TYEE
COPPER COMPANY
Successfully Managed by Mr. W. H.
Trewartha-James
One of the principal industries of
Vancouver Island is that of copper
smelting. For this and its allied industries thc town of Ladysmith offers most exceptional facilities, with
its magnificent land-locked and sheltered harbour, which has deep water,
and clear wide channels. It has also,
in the vicinity, an abundant supply
of coal and coke. The town also
offers good accommodation and cheap
supplies for workmen and their
families, in itself an important factor,
in selecting sites for industrial concerns.
Ladysmith is particularly fortunate in this respect, that ores can be
brought to it either by the E. & N.
railway or by sea. Thc railway has
ample siding accommodations extended to the smelter, and its ore
yards, and a transfer slip for railroad cars arriving by sea from the
mainland by the ferry transfer.
Ladysmith is not hampered by any
restrictions or unduly severe regulations as to noxious fumes and furnace
smoke, which has been so troublesome in California, ancl caused the
shutting down of many large smelting works. The municipality of Ladysmith and the Government of British
Columbia recognizes that industrial
expansion is necessary, and they seek
rather to assist than to hamper progress. The rapid growth of towns
and population farther south tends to
restrict in a remarkable way the
available smelting sites on the American  seaboard.
This advantageous geographical
position assures cheap freights on ore
in both directions. The main traffic
going north consists of goods, provisions and machinery, and the vessels are short of return freights, so
that special rates are obtainable for
ore cargoes southbound to Ladysmith.
Ore can be carried from Skagway to
Ladysmith, some 1,000 miles, in bulk
for $1.50 per ton. Then again, going
south, vessels laden with lumber and
coal, have to come back for more
cargo, in water ballast, unless they
can bring ore. Thus Ladysmith has
a back rate on ore cargoes from as
far south as South America of $4.00
per ton.
The principal smelter now in operation on thc Island is that of the
Tyee Copper Co., and is situated at
Ladysmith, the head office being at
the Board of Trade Buildings, Victoria, B.C. This Company commenced working its mines in 1899, its
Ladysmith smeltei was "blown-in" in
1902.
From 1899 down till the year 1907,
the principal supply of ore was drawn
from the Company's own mines—the
Tyee Mines, at Mount Sicker. Some
172,000 tons of ore were shipped to
Ladysmith over the E. & N. railway,
and during this period substantial dividends were paid to the shareholders.
Since the supply of ore from the
Tyee Mines at Mount Sicker failed,
the smelter has been kept going on
custom ore business. The official reports of the Company show that the
quantity of custom ore being sent to
the smelter from various parts of the
coast is steadily increasing, and the
latest reports covering the period
from September, 1908, to September,
1909, show that 48,000 tons of ore
were received and smelted during that
year, producing about 4,000,000 pounds
of copper, as well as considerable
gold and silver, which is found accompanying the copper ores of British
Columbia. This makes the largest
copper production and tonnage at
any times from these works since the
Financial Year 1904-5, when thc Tyee
mines were at work. The successful
growth of the business is due to the
untiring efforts of the General Manager, Mr. W. H. Trewartha-James.
As will be seen from the description of the works which follows preparations have now been made for
increasing the capacity of the furnaces and for smelting a larger tonnage of copper ore. The Tyee Company having installed a second and
larger blast furnace, 48x160, at the
tuyeres, its capacity is estimated at
ahout 12,000 tons of ore per month,
and it was "blown-in" in July last
year.
Last year the production of the
Vancouver Island mines iwas very
small, but, in addition to ores received from various parts of the
British Columbia coastal districts
and thc Yukon, copper, gold and silver ores were received from as far
north as Latouche, Alaska, and south
as far as Salina Cruz, Mexico.
This Company has every modern
and up-to-date facility for handling
ore shipments, either by rail or by
sea. Ore can be sent without breaking bulk, from any point on the
mainland in the original cars by thc
transport ferry, and landed direct
from any part of the E. & N. railway
system, at the Ladysmith slip. Also
if sent by sea in vessels, ore can be
landed direct at the Company's own
wharf, where they have the most up-
to-date appliances and electric hoists
for discharging ore.
The smelting works alone employ
about 100 men, and in wages, supplies, etc., the Company spends about
$12,000 per month in Ladysmith. In
addition to this the Company distributes to the owners of the customs
ore in payment for the values realized $500,000 per annum, part of which
is re-expended in miers' wages and
supplies.
Enough has been said to show thc
great importance of this industry
to Ladysmith, and the great natural
advantages which this port can offer
to all seeking to establish new industries, iron smelting works, lumber
mills, pulp factories, etc.
Further, having regard to thc great
and practically unexploited mineral
resources, not only of Vancouver
Island, but of the coastal district generally, and particularly considering
the great impetus likely to be given
to thc copper industry by the impetus likely to be given to the copper
industry by the important discoveries
of copper ore, at Stewart, Portland
Canal, B.C., the future of Ladysmith
as an industrial townsite must be regarded as being most promising, in
addition to which its attractions to thc
farmer and settler are more fully set
out in another part.

this wharf are two ore bunkers—one
fixed and having a capacity of about
300 tons, and the other, movable, and
holding 100 tons. The latter, being
on wheels, can be moved along the
wharf. With this arrangement,*iof
bunkers it is practicable to unload
from two hatches of a vessel simultaneously. The bunkers are provided
with electric hoists and other power
appliances for expeditious unloading,
and they have chutes on both sides
to facilitate the loading of the trains
of cars.
Side-discharging cars, each of two
tons capacity, convey the ore from
thc wharf bunkers up an incline 1,000
feet in length to the storage bunkers.
The cars are operated in three trains
of five cars each; while one train is
being weighed and its cars dumped
at the top of the incline, another is
on its way back to the wharf, and
the third is being loaded. The trains
are hauled up the incline by a steam-
driven winding engine placed at the
top. An electric locomotive handles
thc cars at the upper end of the incline, first running them on a Fairbanks' 40 ft. platform scale having
self-registering beam, and weighing
all five cars at the same time, and
then drawing them over the storage
bunkers to be dumped, as required,
is switched to the sample bunkers,
which feed directly into the sampling
mill crusher.

The Course of True Love on an
(August Afternoon
By Minnie Evelyn Henderson
The Brown Boy in ducks and an
old sweater sat on the veranda railing, his back propped by the post.
The White Girl, with her feet tucked under her skirts, lolled in the hammock. Her pretty chin rested on her
hand, and she appeared deeply engrossed in her book.
The Brown Boy was troubled. The
White Girl was Puritanic. She had
declared that no man might call her
"dear" with impunity. Something
had made the Brown Boy reckless
the night before, although he denied
the "moonlight-on-the-water" theory,
and he was now paying the penalty.
His attempts at conversation were
dismal failures.
Is that story good stuff?"
Yes."    Silence.    Then a little maliciously: "The hero is very much like
Mr.   Sadler."    (Hc  was  a  last  year
man freshly arrived).
Humph!     Can't   imagine   anyone
making a hero out of that ass."
'Sir!" looking at him coldly, "your
anguage is hardly discreet."
"I beg your pardon." Then under
lis breath, "he is though." The Brown
Soy yawned. "Think I'll go fish-
ng."
The White girl did not deign to
lotice his remark. She rested one
ttle slipper on the floor and gently
wung herself to and fro. The Brown
ioy stared at thc slipper, above the
)p of which appeared a glimpse of a
ilvery spotted stocking. "Do you
now," hc observed rather sadly, "I
ad a pair just like that swiped on mc
ist year—up here too. Pretty,
en't they?"
With a most becoming blush on
her face, the White Girl hastily drew
her foot under her frills and stared
haughtily at him.
"You don't mean to insinuate," she
began.
The Brown Boy looked at his number nine running shoes and chuckled.
"Oh, I wasn't casting reflections on
your honesty," he interrupted, "I
know who swiped them."
The White Girl turned a page almost savagely. "Personalities show
atrociously poor taste," she remarked
icily. But the Brown Boy refused
to be frozen. "Say, will you put on
an old dress and go fishing?" he asked live seconds later.
"I believe 1 have another engagement," in the same tone, "Is it nearly ten? Mr. Sadler promised to lend
mc the sequel to this book of Anthony Hope's."
'"Sposc I had better slide then, if
you expect company," said the Brown
Boy, slipping quickly off the railing. I
He hesitated a moment, but she didn't
relent. Instead she looked him over |
indifferently and remarked in a drawling voice:
"Well, you're hardly in a respectable enough condition to see visitors
—your trousers" He looked down
ruefully at the huge grass  stains.
"Were fresh before the ball game,''
he finished for her.
"Is not that a hole in the shotltdcr
of your sweater?" she added innocently.
The Brown Boy's temper rose. "A
hole? Yes, it is a hole, I believe
it became   a hole   while    its owner
climbed a rock to obtain a coveted
flower for a certain young lady. Furthermore, if my memory hasn't deceived me, a certain young lady announced her intention of repairing
the damage. Seems to me there arc
other people who indulge in personalities." He picked up his rod and
started off down the path.
The White Girl had the decency
to look ashamed as she swung her
feet out of the hammock. What she
intended doing was never known, because just at that moment there was
a crash. The Brown Boy, half way
down thc path, turned just in time
to see the White Girl land in an undignified fluffffy heap on the floor. In
a moment he was beside her.
"Arc you hurt, dear?" Tears of
mortification rose to her eyes.
"Don't you dare call me that hateful name again," she flashed. "No!
no! no Don't touch mc. I'll get up
myself. Oh. (half crying). I've
bumped all my hair-pins out." The
Brown Boy was busy gathering them.
Voices were heard quite near. The
White Girl hopped up and immc-
diately dropped in a heap again.
"Both my feet arc sound asleep," she
groaned, "Oh, there's someone coming. For mercy's sake help me in
quickly!"
The Brown Boy picked her up.
"It's Dolly," he said, "she's sure to
walk through the house. We'll hide
behind the door."
He held the White Girl securely
under one arm and pulled the door
back against them, holding the handle
in the other. "I think t can stand
alone now; my feet arc waking up,"
whispered thc White Girl.
"No you can't," he whispered back
"Yes 1—- Oh! Oh!" she finished
with a groan.
"What is it, dearie?" whispered the
Brown Boy sympathetically.
"How  dare  you   take  advantage?"
she whispered, rather loudly, with a
sudden return to her icy manner.
"Sh!" he admonished. "They'll hear
you."
But the pain was too much for her
dignity. "It's just like pins and
needles," she gasped. "They hurt
dreadfully."
"Cheer up. They'll be better in a
moment or so," said the Brown Boy
tenderly. His left arm closed about
her a little tighter. But the White
Girl had entirely melted, and she was
crying quietly, with her tears dropping on the hole in the Brown Boy's
old sweater.
Meanwhile the people outside had
taken possession of the veranda.
"Whose hair-pins are these?" asked
a masculine voice.
"Oh," whispered the White Girl,
looking up, "You didn't pick them
all  up."
"Never mind, they will never know
whose they arc." But thc next voice
undeceived him:
"Oh, they must be Dot's. She's the
only blonde among us."
"Of course they're Dot's; here's
Gordon Lang's fishing rod," said a
wise masculine voice conclusively.
"Are those two as spoony as ever?"
inquired a new voice which thc Brown
Boy recognized as belonging to Mr.
Sadler. Hc looked down mischievously at thc White Girl. She looked
up.
"How dare they," she gasped.
"Oh, yes," answered thc wise voice
a little wearily, "as bad as ever."
"[ wonder if they arc engaged,"
said  a  girl  with  a   little  laugh.
"This is their second year," said the
wise voice. "Tf they're not, they ought
to  be."
The Brown Boy looked down. Thc
White Gir] felt his heart thump but
she didn't look up. She moved away
from  him  as  far as  possible.
"That's  the  worst  feature of these
summer resorts," continued the wise
voice outside. "It seems to be in the
air. Wish I could catch it though,"
he added plaintively, "it's a fearful
bore just looking on."
"Well, if it's in the air," laughed
Sadler, "let us have a game of tennis
and try our luck at catching it."
So laughing merrily the crowd left
the veranda and went chattering down
the walk.
"Are they out of sight?" whispered
the White Girl.
The Brown Boy peered through the
crack.
"Yes," he answered.
"Well, then, let mc out, please."
She commenced rolling her hair in-

BREAKFAST IN A
JIFFY
Don't know just how long a "jiffy" is, but if you cook with one of our splendid, time-saving Gas Ranges, you
can get a hasty breakfast almost while you are thinking about it. No trouble to start, like a coal fire, no smoke or
soot—no heating discomforts. Economical, too, because it costs only just while you are using it. One turn of the gas
tap and the expense ends.   Cheaper and cleaner than coal or wood.
Quick and clean cooking, perfect heating and general comfort are assured with the conveniences of a Gas Range.
We have them in all the desirable sizes, well and strongly made, handsomely designed and all ready for quick adjustment in any room. Although "high in quality and of the very latest and most up-to-date models our prices are extremely
reasonable.
You can either pay cash or purchase upon the easy payment plan. We cordially invite you to visit our showroom.    It is a pleasure to us to demonstrate the safety, simplicity and economy of gas for cooking purposes.

which was erected some years ago. I
admit that I am to blame myself, as
I remember distinctly advocating its
erection. I plead guilty to an error
of judgment. What I want to emphasize now is that the sooner the whole
building is demolished, the better.
At present it is nothing more nor less
than an eye-sore. It never was any
good as a bathing-shed because the
majority of bathers out here are too i
thin-skinned to stand cold water. And!
I want somebody to deny this latter
fact,

I have frequently written about thc
treatment which Chinamen receive in
this town, I don't hold any brief for
them, but I do feel that they, of all
people, should not be cheated. The
average Chinaman is scrupulously
honest; there may possibly be exceptions in the millions which thc coun- j
try raises. I, however, havc never yet I
come across one. It strikes mc very'
forcibly that the white man takes a
big advantage of the yellow one. I
came across a case in point this week.
There is a Chinese laundry-man in
town who has about $2,000 worth of
debts; and the majority of his clients
are men in good position. Men who
wouldn't hesitate to pay their rates
and taxes; men who would be
ashamed to owe two-bits over a bar.
But the Chink has to go to h 1!
And I don't .see why hc should go
there. Hc is a good, hard working
man; in spite of all that has been said
about "Yellow Perils" wc know perfectly well that we can't do without
him.   Therefore, why cheat him?

Who owns thc lot adjoining the
Dallas Hotel? Whoever it may be,
he, or she, should be compelled to
put up decent fencing. Thc pailings
around this lot are in a deplorable
state,  and  must  give  a  new  arrival
at the Outer Wharf a very bad
opinion of the City. There is no particular need for pailings at all; in
that case have the whole lot taken
away; a man could do that in a day
and it wouldn't cost more than about
$3.00. The present appearance is
scandalous.

She was looking a little bit icy again,
so he didn't risk saying anything.
Presently she finished.

What'll You Take
Those who prefer good, pure Beer, should try Lemp's.
Many men find it the best drink during the Spring and
Summer for a dry throat, a stimulant that is good for
the health and that thirsty feeling. Few beverages are
as healthful as the right kind of beer, for barley, malt and
hops form a food and a tonic. Lemp's Beer is the right
kind of Beer—an unrivalled appetizing tonic which should
be on every luncheon and dinner table. Call for it at

white and was looking at her rather
strangely.
Now the White Girl was not altogether hard hearted; and just at that
moment her eye fell on the hole in
his sweater. It gave him such a forlorn and neglected appearance. Her
mouth quivered.
"Your shoulder might get blistered

vork smoothly and efficiently, and
eflect the greatest credit on the de-
igner, Mr. W. J. Watson, the Smelter
Manager.
There is an alternative method for
lealing with ore which may arrive
>y the E. & N. Railway, from any
•art of Vancouver and various
Southern ports in self-dumping cars
n the transfer ferries. These latter
ars are discharged at the Ladysmith
lip of the E. & N. Railway Company,
nd with any ore cars arriving by the
_. & N. Railway are switched around
o the Tyee Company's large general
•re yard, where there are bunkers for
.ooo tons, roasting floors, and ample
torage capacity for very large quan-
ities of ore when required; also faci-
ities for  treating  special parcels  of
e.
Ore Sampling
The sampling mill is 29 by 34 feet
y 70 feet high, with a pit 14 feet
eep for the No. 4 Gates gyratory
rusher. The ore is fed directly to
ie   crusher   and   broken   to   pass
irough a 2-inch ring; it is then ele-
ated to the top of the mill and passes
n its downward course, consecutive-
■, a Snyder  disc  sampler, a  Blake
usher, a second Snyder sampler, and
wo sets of rails, so that the sample
'hich reaches the steel floor is about
ie size of wheat. This sample is
uartered down and run through a
mall grinder in the ordinary way and
Inally put through a Braun disc pul-
erizer. With high grade ores the
|ulp has finally to be passed through
150-mesh   sieve,   but  with  a  low-
ade copper ore a 100-mesh sieve is
ied.
Smelting
There  are   two   furnaces   installed
the present time.   "No. 1" is a 42-
ich by 120-inch Allis Chalmers
■ater-jacketed blast furnace, capacity
iout 275 tons per day; the air for
/lis furnace is supplied by an 8,000-
ubic foot blower at a pressure  of
om 24 to 30 ounces. The "No. 2"
|irnace is 42  inches by  160 inches,
ipacity about 400 tons per day. This
jrnace  receives   about   14,000   cubic
et of air per minute at about 2 lbs.
jressure. The blowers are both
elted  to  Reliance   Corliss  Engines.
ith both furnaces in operation the
orks have a capacity of 20,000 tons
*f ore per month.
Arrangements have been made for
(lie installation of a mechanical fur-
iace feed. The molten material from
lhe furnace flows into afore-hearth 4
jeet wide by 12 feet long, attached to
■hich is a matte compartment,
Ihrough which the matte passes con-
jinuously if sufficient matte is being
lade, but it can also be operated in-
jermittently at intervals of an hour
ir more. The slag is granulated by
Topping into a powerful jet of cold
rater, and is then automatically wash-
d out into the bay.
General
There arc at the smelter four sets
if ore bunkers with a storage capa-
:ity of 7,000 tons, also several hun-
red feet of trestling, with a storage
:apacity of many thousands of tons
if stock ore.
In close proximity to the smelting
-orks are the Company's laboratory
|ind general offices in separate buildings. The laboratory is fully equipped
vith modern appliances for purposes
pf assay and analysis, and especial
:are is taken to ensure accuracy in
lissaying, in this way conserving the
interests of those from whom ore is
mrchased.
The Company deservedly enjoys an
:xcellent reputation for fair dealing
ith its customers, who are afforded
ivery facility for watching the sampling  and   assaying   of   their    ores,
]hereby establishing   the   confidence
ecessary to success in building up a
irge custom smelting business.
