J The Publishers wish to notify their readers that
ley have a few copies of the Special Edition left
ver which they can supply on application. The
.hole issue contracted for was distributed last
eek, and many complimentary notices have been
iceived. Owing to the character of the issue, the
nount of original matter it contained, and the
liable data furnished as to the progress of the
|ity, this Special Number is being largely used
financial houses for advertising purposes.   The
Iublishers believe that it is the most complete
.d exhaustive report on the present condition
d prospects of Victoria which has been sent out.
URRY—The Victoria Times thinks
that Mr. McBride is in "no hurry"
to have the provisions of the con-
I vvith the C. N. R. enforced.    It thinks
sir William Mackenzie is in "no hurry"
liablish a fast ferry between the mainland Victoria, and it is trying to lash
into a fury because it professes to
Ire that the pre-election pledges of the
incial Government will not be carried
The Times is unfortunate in its choice
title for its editorial on this subject,
J.ise the title of "No Hurry" inevitably
lests to every citizen of Victoria the
pn lean years" and more, during whicii
proprietor of the Times, although its
lamentary   representative,   and   for   a
lid the only Cabinet Minister from Brit-
Columbia, was certainly in "No Hurry."
h the Hon. William Templeman faced
electorate instead of presenting, as most
ibers of Parliament do, a report of pro-
i, always appealed to the future, and
i what he was going to do, but when
I or three years went by and he came
to ask once more for the suffrages
Iie people there was no report of exe-
1 works or fulfilled programme, but
another list of specious promises.   Not
the Victoria Times will, have the hardi-
to claim that Mr. Templeman was in
"hurry" about the settlement of the
jhees Reserve question, or the building
i Breakwater.    It was not until Mr.
.pieman was got rid of that somebody
e along who was really in a "hurry,"
ed the Songhees question out of hand,
ired   a   substantial   appropriation   for
k on the Breakwater, and brought it
lin the range of practical not promising
tics.    The best thing the Times could
s to forget the word "Hurry"; it is alto-
ler too suggestive of the political record
gentleman who of all politicians, living
|lead, has the least right to talk of people
being in a "Hurry."
1 wishes to enter its emphatic protest against the ill-judged and
gerous system which has been adopted
many American, and some Canadian
:s for the avowed ptirpose of suppress-
immorality. No one questions the mo-
s of the good men who have banded
nselves together mainly for the purpose
:hecking what is known as the "social
," but in the very nature of things
|isters of religion and clean living people
the very last who could render efficient
ice in this connection. No paper and
pamphlet has yet dared to set forth in
lerate, judicial phraseology the salient
ures of the social vice. Nor is it de-
ble that they should do so. What is
ited is that the law which represents
lie opinion and public sentiment on the
ect should be reasonably enforced,
erever this is done the result is as satis-
o'ry as it can bc made under existing
Ial and economic conditions. There are
:s when the enforcement of the law bees lax for various reasons. Sometimes
uise public sentiment, like a pendulum,
gs to the extreme of indifference, at
r times because the superintending
lorities relax their vigilance and the
Drdinates become careless No doubt at
times this peculiar phase of communal
is accentuated by tlie venality of those
who instead of fighting help to foster it.
But when all is said and done the only
good work which local vigilance committees
or "morality squads" can do is to help to
educate, and produce a healthy public
opinion, and to notify the police, as any
private citizen would, of breaches of the
law which come under their notice. The
modern American craze for persecuting
people which has developed the "morality
squad" and is leading otherwise reputable
citizens to perpetrate deeds of folly at
which the .angels weep is simply morality
run mad. The idea of accompanying police
officers to stalk suspected prey, of entering
private rooms in hotels, waking up respectable citizens, charging them with crimes,
and compelling them to produce a marriage
certificate on the spur of the moment is
something worse even than midsummer
madness. It is not merely child's play of
the most futile description but it is a gross
infringement of the liberty of the subject.
It is un-English, unconstitutional, illegal,
and perhaps worst of all, destructive of the
moral sense of the community which is
bound to retaliate by taking the law into its
own hands. It is hardly likely that this
extreme development of the craze will
reach Victoria. The "morality squad" here
seems to content itself with making false
charges against respectable citizens, and
trying to ruin the business of old established reputable hotels. The Week hopes
that the first time any attempt is made
to practice the peculiar features of the
morality game as played in Seattle and
Vancouver, Victoria citizens will discourage
the attempt by an injection of cold lead.
NAVAL DEFENSE—The subject of
Naval Defense continues, to excite
widespread interest. It is a big
subject, with many ramifications, and with
many expert features on which the average man is by no means fit to speak. No
doubt the Liberal press is playing the right
political game when it tries to convince the
country that Mr. Borden is not desirous of
taking action, but the Liberal press is inconsistent, to this extent at any rate, that it
has long ago agreed that the question of
Naval Defense should not be made a political one. No doubt Mr. Borden has been
longer in taking the public into his confidence than was expected. Many people,
Liberal ancl Conservative, would have been
glad to have seen prompter action. Canadians have been humiliated when regarding
the generous contribution of New Zealand
and the Commonwealth of Australia. They
would have felt more humiliated if the proceedings of the Imperial Defense Conference had been published in the press "verbatim." As explained by one speaker at the
Navy League meeting in the Victoria
Theatre the whole question turned on the
funds available, and after little New Zealand had voluntarily given ten million dollars Sir Wilfrid Laurier felt unable to guarantees a contribution which capitalized
would have represented about half that
amount. It has long been realized that in
this parsimonious attitude the ex-Premier
did not represent Canadian opinion. The
fact of the matter is that he was too much
under the domination of the little Englanders of Eastern Canada,' ancl if Mr.
Borden has allowed himself to be influenced
for one moment by representations from the
same quarter he will not be able long to
shut his eyes to the fact that the Dominion
expected better things of a Conservative
Government. It is not true, as alleged by
some Liberal papers, that there is any
supineness in this great matter on the part
of the reputable Conservative Press. The
strongest Conservative papers in the
Dominion have for some time been urging
Mr. Borden to take action. And in doing
so they have reflected the sober judgment
of Canadian people of all parties.
Week has no hesitation in saying
tliat in the judgment of a great
many people, not all Liberals, the Dominion
Government has made a great mistake in
suspending certain clauses of the Immigration Act. It did so at the special request
of the great railway companies who claimed
that they would not be able to live up to
their contracts unless certain restrictions
were removed, and the importation of aliens
facilitated. The Week does not believe in
the correctness of the premises but in any
event it is fully satisfied as to the unwisdom
of the policy. Even if the maintenance of
the law in its integrity had involved one
season's delay in railway construction it
would have been better than throwing wide
open t'he gates through which a swarm of
Dagos, Hungarians, Galicians and many
other of the lower European nationalities
have already swarmed into this Province.
Most of the City work in Victoria is now
being clone by Dagos, and when the winter
comes and work slackens there will be
hundreds of men of our own race thrown
out of employment because the Dago will
gobble up every job in sight at "cut rates."
Ancl this is only one phase of the evil.
The relaxing of the regulation, although not
intended to have that effect, has led to the
bringing in of scores of skilled workers
such as plasterers ancl carpenters, who
could not have come in legally under the Act.
The Week understands that representations
have been made on this matter to the
Dominion Government, ancl it is greatly to
be hoped that the Government may be induced to abandon a change which cannot
possibly work out to the advantage of this
SEYMOUR NARROWS-A deputation has gone to Ottawa to present a
petition in favour of the construction
of a bridge across Seymour Narrows. The
deputation might easily have been more
representative but as its work will consist
in presenting a "prepared case" perhaps
that might pass. The Week favours the
construction of the bridge; it regards it as
a necessary ancl inevitable link in that railway construction which will ultimately connect Victoria and Halifax. The engineering
difficulties need not be considered. The
cost is no longer prohibitive. Premier
McBride has said that the bridge will be
built and has intimated clearly that the
Dominion Government may be expected to
co-operate in the matter. The C. N. R.
have purchased the Railway Charter from
Campbell River east, which must involve
the construction of a bridge across Seymour Narrows. Sir William Mackenzie
has promised that twenty miles of the railway shall be constructed this year; everything, therefore, points to the probability
that Mr. Borden and Mr. McBride will get
down to business in this important matter
before long. The deputation has prepared
a goocl case which is supported by the
whole of Vancouver Island. The fact that
it is opposed by the City of Vancouver
should not operate against its chances of
Week has no intention of anticipating the report of Lord Mersey's
Commission on the loss of the Titanic.
There are, however, two features of the
enquiry which stand out in bold prominence, and about which more is certain to
be heard. The one is thc failure of a certain vessel, well within reach, to go to the
scene of the wreck. It is inconceivable that
the jurisdiction of the Admiralty Court will
not, to some extent at any rate, cover this
remarkable action. The other point is the
very determined, not to say hostile manner,
in which Sir Rufus Isaacs cross-examined
Mr. Bruce Ismay. While everyone resented
the  bullying tactics  adopted  by   Senator
Smith it is not a little singular that so
eminent a practitioner as Sir Rufus
Isaacs should have indicated very clearly
his disapproval of the conduct of the witness. There was an attempt to create sympathy for Mr. Ismay because of the "grilling" he received at the Washington inquiry,
but the course already adopted by the
greatest cross-examiner at the British Bar
goes a long way to confirm the first impression made upon the public mind by the
conduct of one of the chief proprietors of
the vessel, in leaving her in safety when
hundreds of the passengers confided to the
care of his company were left to perish.
has been requested to call attention to
a serious matter, serious as affecting
the health and probably the lives of thousands of people. The matter has been mentioned in the public press before, but never
with the detail and particularity of a communication which has reached The Week.
The letter speaks for itself, and knowing
the writer and the photographer The Week
is prepared to vouch for its accuracy... The
letter is accompanied by a photograph
which came to hand too late for insertion
in the current issue, but will appear next
week. The writer states that Japanese
fishermen catch codfish in large quantities
by the illegal use of nets, dump them into
boxes, with wired sides like a cage, sink
these boxes under water and keep the fish
there unfed ancl untended for five or six
weeks. When they have a sufficient quantity they raise the boxes, empty the lish
into their boats, ancl take them to market.
By tliis time the fish are emaciated, diseased, covered with sores from constant
friction, and many of them blind. They
are unfit for food, and at least as dangerous
as much of the diseased meat which is condemned. The photograph fully bears out
this statement. Our correspondent states
that the box photographed was one of
thirty, and that the system described is the
one universally practiced by the Japanese.
The Week gives publicity to these facts,
first of all to call the attention of the authorities to the subject, and next to warn the
public against buying codfish procured in
this manner. The exact location, together
with other details, will be gladly furnished
to anyone who has the necessary authority
to act in the matter.
WHERE IS HE?—There is sufficient
of the milk of human kindness in
most people to render them willing to oblige any person who makes a reasonable request politely. There is an added
pleasure in rendering such a service to the
Victoria Times, because its requests, like
its political criticisms, are always couched
in polite language. In commenting upon
the absence of Mr. G. II. Barnard, M.P..
from Victoria, it asks "WHERE IS HE?"
The Week has pleasure in informing the
Times that at the present moment Mr.
Barnard is in London studying some of the
problems of thc Empire at the heart of the
Empire, ancl that he will be in Victoria in
July. By which time, unless The Week is
entirely deceived, the Times will have got
over iis "HURRY."
LABOUR COUNCIL—The Week regrets thai so important an organization ns the Victoria Branch of tlie
Trades and Labour Council should have
amended its constitution so as to permit the
debating of political and religious subjects.
Thc plain effect of this is to deliver the
Council over to the domination of American Socialists, some of whom at any rate
are Anarchists. There can he but one result—a split in the local labour ranks, ancl
the establishment of another Council by
lhe reasonable, moderate, peace-loving
workingmen of the City. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1912
My attention lias been called to the
system of allocating space in our public streets for automobile stands. I
have no doubt that the police authorities, with whom this matter rests,
havc dealt to the best of their ability
with a somewhat difficult subject, but
I cannot altogether congratulate them
on having reconciled conflicting interests. A number of machines have
been put on the streets for hire by
men who have no stake in the city,
and who are only here for the short
tourist season. As I said last week,
they pay no taxes, and no fees, except one license for the automobile.
They are here today and gone tomorrow, yet they ply for hire in competition with established firms who
own property, and pay taxes to the
City, and in some cases they have
been allowed to stand practically at
the door of City garages. This surely is not fair, and I cannot think it is
necessary. It works a further disadvantage to the garage firm-s inasmuch as private individuals are not
willing to place their autos in a garage so near to a public stand for reasons whicii need not be enlarged
upon. Altogether I consider that
this is a legitimate grievance and one
whicii the authorities may fairly be
asked to remedy.
* *   *
I am a cigarette smoker and glory
in thc fact, 1 know this means that
to many very good people I am
"anathema," but 1 cannot help it, and
as they may possibly have some weaknesses of their own they can set them
in thc scale against mine. The subject has been brought up in consequence of an amusing despatch which
appeared in the daily press a few days
ago to the effect that the American
Episcopal Church had placed tobacco
under the "ban." It seems to mc that
this is quite a drastic step, and not
altogether a logical one for a church
which recently lifted the ban from
theatre-going and card playing. Personally I indulge in all three vices,
if vices they are, but I am certain,
and 1 speak from experience, that infinitely more harm is wrought in the
world by card playing than by smoking, and I am not sure that the moral
effect of promiscuous and indiscriminate theatre-going is not also worse.
Measuring the offence by the strictly
Methodist rule I suppose a fair test
would be as to which of these so-
called "vices" had been the largest
contributor to the population of a
place whicii shall be nameless. And
if this be a test it is quite certain
that tobacco would have very little
to answer for. T therefore fail to see
the raison d'etre of an attack by a
Church whicii swallows theatres ancl
cards but turns sick at the cigarette.
If I am met witli the objection that
though tobacco may not seriously injure the morals, thereby imperilling
the soul, it nevertheless weakens thc
body, my answer is that the universal
testimony of the age is that neither
thc Methodist Church, nor all the
churches put together, have shown
themselves sufficiently alive to the
needs of men's bodies to entitle them
to express an opinion on this subject.
So in spite of the anathema I shall
continue to smoke, if only because 1
am sure that it is one of the most
effectual means of separating me
some day from these well meaning
but misguiuded zealots who would
place me under a ban now.
* *   *
1 notice that an old friend of mine,
Mr. Lins, assisted by several colleagues whose names I have not yet
been able to get, has taken over the
Balmoral Hotel and is having it renovated preparatory tn conducting it on
modern lines. I am sure this docs
not mean that a hotel which has al-,
ways been regarded as one of the
most respectable and reliable in the
City will lose any of its old-time
"status." The traditions of the Balmoral    are    most    honourable    and
creditable, the best families on Vancouver Island have patronised it for
many years, and have felt that they
could safely do so. This feature will
be strictly maintained, but in addition
1 understand that the catering will be
conducted on entirely different lines
—and none too soon. Mr. Lins and
his associates intend to specialise in
"feeding" their customers, and iu
"feeding" them in the best manner at
the most moderate prices. In spite of
the many excellent cafes in Victoria
there is still room for one which will
always give the best quality at popular
prices, and this is to be the new
feature of the Balmoral.

I know my readers will not believe
the statement, nevertheless it is a
positive fact, that I am beginning to
take a little interest in baseball. Not
that I understand it any better, far
from that, but that its profound mysteries have at last roused my interest.
Perhaps the immediate cause of this
was the game I witnessed on Wednesday afternoon when after leading by
seven runs to none at the end of the
seventh innings, Victoria was deposed from its proud position by
Spokane which scored 5 in the eighth
and three in the ninth, thus winning
by one run. Now that is what I call
baseball, and yet to my utter astonishment the performance was received by the fans in silence. Now what
I can't understand is this, when Victoria was scoring those seven runs in
separate innings and Spokane registering a "duck egg" every time, the
fans went wild with excitement, yet
I should suppose it was a very ordinary matter, and one not calling for
any enthusiasm, for a team to score
seven runs in seven innings. When,
however, another team performs the
very unusual feat of scoring eight runs
in two innings it didn't seem a bit
funny to the fans. I have come to
one conclusion, that the real object
of the game of baseball is not to score
runs, but to get the pitcher "up in the
air," and then the runs take care of
themselves. I wonder whether I am
right? I also wonder whether there
is any other amusement in Canada
which' would attract three thousand
people day after day. No .wonder that
Manager Cohn says Victoria is the

I am glad that my repeated hammering at the Police Department, the
Council, and the Parks Board has at
last borne fruit, and that in future
young girls and children are to be
protected from the "hoodlums" who
frequent our parks. No expenditure
which has been authorised by our
civic authorities will bear better fruit.
Every public park should be the children's play ground, and the invalid's
resort. If the custodians about to be
appointed, and the mounted officer
promised, do their duty there will not
be in the wide world a better or safer
recreation ground than Beacon Hill
I, John A. Jamieson, of Chilanco Forks, Inoccupation a Farmer, give notice that I intend
on lhe ioth day of Juue next, at eleven o'clock
in the forenoon, to apply to the Water Commissioner at his office at Victoria, for a
licence to take and use three cubic feet of
water per second from Goebcl Creek, a tributary of Cochin Lake, to be diverted at a
point about oue and one-half miles above outlet at Cochin Lake.
Thc water will bc used on Lot 328 for
Irrigation purposes.

George Leon Moore of "Thc

loist of Henry Ward Beecher's famous Plymouth Church of Brooklyn,
and he had studied arduously under
these famous teachers of world fame—
Arditi of Pans, Randolph Herman
of Berlin, Sig. Giuseppe Campanari
and Sig. Bologna of Italy, and had
sung in many oratorios, he made his
first contract for theatrical work with
thc J. C. Duff Opera Company.
His first appearance resulted in the
kind of hit that Mr. Moore has been
glad never to repeat.| He was to play
a small role in the long-remembered
"Floradora," but on the day proposed
for opening it was discovered that the
player intended for the principal male
role would never be able to sing the
music, and Mr. Duff came to Moore
and turned it over to him with the instructions t'.at he must learn the part
and save the day for the company.
"The Spring Maid" appears at the
Victoria Theatre on Wednesday. June

Stock Company will make their second season's appearance in Victoria at
the Princess Theatre (A. O. U. W.
Hall, Yates Street), Wednesday, June
12th. It will be remembered that this
company was very successful last
year, and won the hearty approval of
the theatre-going public, by giving
clean, up-to-date performances at an
unusually low price.   They will open
their season with the great society
drama, "The Lion and the Mouse."
They promise that it will be well
staged and costumed and presented
by a capable ( company, amongst
which will bc some well known faces.
We wish them success.

What Really
By Bohemian
A well known proverb runs, "You
cannot put old heads on young shoulders," which is generally used in relation to matters of business or conduct in which some young person has
acted injudiciously, and the elder can
see and point out just where the error
It is a recognition of this fundamental truth which makes the world
tolerant of the follies and mistakes
of youth. Human experience also
teaches us that the wildest of princes
may make the wisest of kings and
therefore that time is on the side of
the angels.
But this is to take one, and that
perhaps the narrowest interpretation
of the proverb. I want to give it another turn, ancl say that while youth
is the time for ambition, for enterprise, and for action, mature age is
the time for reflection, and it is only
then that a man is able, looking back
over the experiences of life, to see
things in their true light, to apportion values, and in short to decide
what really matters.
Youth is a time of disproportion,
oi obliquity of -vision,, of exaggeration. It is the time of life when wc
worry ourselves unnecessarily, or at
any rate worry about the things which
in the end do not matter.
It is difficult, if not impossible, to
convince the ardent youth of the
twenties that there will be any sunshine left in the world if one light he
knows of were blotted out. At that
age we are apt to think that it is "uow
or never." That what we want \vi-
must have, or hereafter nothing but
"blackness and darkness."
At fifty we havc learned many
things, and among them that in real
life we can rarely have the thing we
want. That failing to get it ninety-
nine men out of every hundred make
the best of their disappointment, and
take up the burden of life anew. It
may be heavier, and their step may
falter, but they can slid push or.
And theu youth always forgets that
suns and stars set to rise again, and
one can never tell when the clear
light may shine once more. So that
what really matters is not so much
that we should get what we want just
when and how we want it, but that
we should so comport ourselves 111 the
face of disappointment and loss as not
to interpose any barrier against the
reuniting of sundered  friendships.
This is especially true when one remembers that nearly all severances oi
human tics are due to misunderstandings, and whenever the misunderstanding can be removed the chances
.are that the former relations can be
•renewed. In any event there is no
surer or safer road to future happiness than that a man should so comport himself a. to sacrifice 10 s .reel
of self respect cr personal dignity.
As long as he can respect himself,
and the line of conduct he has pursued, there is little doubt that time
will  vindicate  hin:.  and  a  .air judg
ment will not only exonerate but seek
to reconcile.
So after all the thing that really
matters in life is not the disappointment, the sorrow, or the loss, but the
clear conscience, and the hopeful patience, which having done all and yet
apparently failed can still confidently
trust to the healing influences of time.
Future Uses of the Military Forces of the Empire
in Peace Time
(Written for The Week by C. B. S.)
As parliament was to meet on 6th
February, 1911, it was thought advisable by Army and Navy officers
at home to discuss beforehand the
question of the Declaration of London and of our Food Supply (in
times of peace as well as war). As
the subject was a momentous one. for
the Mother Country and would have
important points for consideration in
the Overseas Dominions the committee of the Royal United Service Institution at Whitehall approached Mr.
Douglas Owen with a view to his
reading a paper in order to open the
ball; than Mr. Douglas Owen no better authority exists on matters connected with the Corn Exchange, it
was fortunate therefore that such a
person could be found willing to undertake the task of placing before
the combined forces of the Crown a
concise report from primarily a trade
point of view.
The clearness with which Mr.
Douglas Owen accomplished his task
left nothing to be desired; there was
a complete absence of anything
savouring of party politics left for
discussion; Naval and Military authorities alike entirely agreed with
'what he had to say and the points
directly connected with events in time
of war were satisfactorily settled after
very thorough discussion; these were
duly recorded in the Journal of the
R. U. S. 1.; the meeting fulfilled its
object—not only were officers of both
forces well represented but we were
fortunate in being able to hear the
views of a somewhat independent
politician, Mr. Gibson Bowles. The
main object of the meeting was
gained as it started the much discussed subject which filled up the
three weeks intervening before the
opening of parliament and provided
the politicians and Peers with ample
:'ood and copy, and so conveyed to
the people some idea of the possibilities of starvation aud hardships to be
guarded against in the near future.
What interests us here at the present
time is, not the matters discussed at
the time and plans arranged for in
tlie event of wars and panics caused
by rumours of war, but, developments
brought about by social evolutions
which are fortunately being fought
out peaceably and in time nf peace,
social developments wliieh succeed
each other with somewhat alarming
regularity—ior no sooner is one section settled for a time than another
industrial machine gets out of order.
To return to the meeting under notice, there was certain matters which
had to be treated as "Tom Tiddler's
Ground" and though hinted at by
most of those who discussed the subject, one had to read between the
lines to understand what lay deep in
the minds of most of those present;
it was left to Admiral Sir Cyprian
Bridge in his final sum-up from the
chair to conclude with these words:
"* * *Mr. Douglas Owen deserved
thanks for the warning hc had conveyed of a serious danger not threatened by au enemy but growing up in
our own midst." (Hear, hear).
Shortly after this Sir Edward Grey,
speaking on this very subject, referred
to the danger of the country bleeding to death in time of peace. Whenever any practical solution was offered to the problem in the shape of
training soldiers and sailors in
branches of industrial labour, to take
the place of organized strike, the very
idea was at once quashed by authori
ties and political influence on the
ground that it would rouse suspicion
in the minds of the people and injure
trade; if it was even suggested that
soldiers should be trained to make
their own clothes and accoutrements
—it was considered an unpopular
measure as it would injure trade. The
British sailor has got a name for being "a handy man." This is no compliment, it is mere fact. The soldier
can be an equally handy man, but
political humbug alone prevents this
and only when dire necessity calls
for his aid with the civil power is
he made use of in any practical way
in peace-time; by peace time here is
meant other than actual war time,
and embraces times of internal
Ample time and opportunity exists
for the military forces of the Empire
to receive a very efficient training
for civil life during their period of
active service, and if only the trades
taught were considered with a proper importance given to local conditions and requirements, there would
be more room in the Empire for
everybody, the social classes, employers and employed, would get to
know each other better and learn to
have more confidence mutually; it is
this lack of mutual confidence that
forms the gap between mutual interests and so provides space for trade
disputes and strikes. In these enlightened days we hear too much
about Military Discipline from those
who have no knowledge of military
matters; as a matter of fact the
"Military Discipline" of 20 or 30
years ago has died out and has been
completely replaced by the spirit of
inducement born of example identical
with that form of trade discipline
which exists in every flourishing concern and almost the turn of social
etiquette as it should be; the junior
regimental officer of the present day
very soon learns:
"What would you have?   Your gentleness shall  force
Moie  than  your  force  move  us to
C. B. S.
Marine Defence of
Sir,—In the Navy League resolutions one calls for a "prompt and substantial contribution on the part of
Canada {■) Imperial Naval Defense."
This means, I take it, either a sum of
money towards the upkeep of Royal
Navy and men and s':ips from this
side. Lord Milner was, 1 think, the
lirst public man to lay down tbe principle that the best defense the Colonies could give to the Old Country
was to defend themselves. Canada
is now grown up and to get behind
our Mother Country for protection
is not in line with Anglo-Saxon traditions. That we havc the nucleus of
a respectable marine fore? nov/ in
tbe Province without going any further for a first line of defense, is a
subject for discussion. Our waters
from the entrance of San Juan Straits
the Seymour Narrows, are confined
and not suitable for manocuvreing a
fleet of large vessels as the passes
are narrow and along the American
boundary an additional ship would
have to be taken off from the light-
ing area; at the same time the waters
are ideal for a small craft lighter and
as these waters contain our railroads,
coal and cities the first step surely
would be to organize a force to try
and bold these waters against a raid.
Last fall the question of peace or war
witb Germany was in the balance. If
it had been war T believe a couple of
cruisers might have held up Victoria
and Vancouver, levied a suitable tribute and been outside again in forty-
eight hours, a few of tbe leading citizens facing a firing party, and it is
wonderful bow easily these collections are made. Wc havc during
January and February a large part
of our floating population out of
work, loggers, movers and fishermen,
all men who might be wove into a
first rate marine corp with a little
organization and drill. The logger
cannot be beat handling weights, tbe
fisherman fnr the boat, the miner has
been trained in tbe use of explosives
and would be a  good  torpedo man.
These men are accustomed to camp
out and have a good physique (a man
from England made the remark to
me a few days ago in Vancouver,
"What a lot of big men there are on
the streets!") Why not put up a few
drill sheds with batteries (dummy
guns if economical), and during January and February give what men
you could a mouth's training. If you
pay the proper wage you would have
all the men you required. Pick out
ten per cent, for leading hands and
give them an extra course and pay,
After the first year gunboats, etc.,
might be attached and the men taken
for day cruises. If you can get these
men with their experience I do not
believe tbat there would be any economy in taking a green hand. Corner
lots are in request at present, perhaps some day a man who can use a
gun may command the top price, so
even as an investment a little training might pay. A battery on Point
Grey and a professor of the noble
art of self defense might be added to
the University, whose classes might
in days to come put up a fight worthy
of B. C.

Mayne  Island.
Youth and I.,ove once chanced to part
Tn  the garden   of  my  heart;
'Later on we'll  meet again
'Neath the bramblehedge of Pain."
Thus spoke  Love.    Then braggart Youth:
"Father 'neath the Rose of Truth!"
When the cycles' slow revolving,
All our hopes and fears dissolving,
Wheeled around tbe trysting hour,
Where was Love?   And where was Youth?
Thorn of Pain or Rose of Truth?
Hark yc!    Travel-stained and  dour,
Underneath  tbe  Rose of Pain
Youth   awaited   Love  again—
While beneath the Thorn of Truth
Jaded Love was seeking Youth!

"What I want," Francis Wilson told an
amateur dramatist, "is a bright, frothy tragedy
—something  crisp   and   snappy."
"How do you mean?" asked the would-be
author, slightly puzzled. "Can you give mc
an  idea?"
"Oh, yes," said Wilson. "Here's one. Just
a little thing in one act, you kuow.
"When the curtain goes up two persons
are discovered on a sofa, one a pretty young
woman, the other a nice-looking young man.
They embrace. Neither says a word. Then a
door c, ens at tbe back and a commercial
traveller enters. He wears an overcoat and
carries an umbrella. You can tell at once
by bis manner that be is tbe husband of the
young woman. At least tbat would be the
natural inference uf every discriminating playgoer.
"The husband takes off bis coat, draws a
revolver, and in the midst of tbe silent embrace of hero and heroine fires.
"The young woman falls dead.
"Hc fires again.   Tbe young man falls dead.
"Then the murderer' comes forward, puts
on a pair of eyeglasses, and proceeds to contemplate   bis   sanguinary   work.
" 'Great heavens!' he exclaims, 'I am on the
wrong floor!' "
Dr. Wiley tells the story of a little girl who
stroked the beak of a parrot. Thc ill-natured
bird bit her. She wrung ber torn finger and
cried, "Oh, dear, I thought it was a nose,

public is gradually, coming to realize the tremendous annual
caused by the fires in America.   Various estimates have been
jf the properly so destroyed, and practically none of these esti-
place the loss at less than an average of a million dollars for
day of the year in the United States.   A brief examination of
nation shows conclusively that the fault lies almost entirely in
ilding .methods and regulations, says the Adjuster.   The fire
ments of the American cities are the best in the world.   The
ig regulations are probably the worst.   As one foreign expert
ly remarked in this city, it is almost inconceivable that a city
had such an appalling fire experience in 1906 should continue to
uate the old condition of affairs.   True, a separate water supply
g installed and generally the fire fighting system is being brought
highest degree of efficiency.   But the building requirements
practically the same;  the greater part of the city is covered
rame structures of the most combustible character; frail shacks
11 to be found in the business district and elsewhere, and generally
item is as bad, if not worse, than in most American cities.
The American is a speculator.   He does not build for posterity
when he is compelled by law.   It is this spirit probably that
the difference between the fire record of the United States and
•ope.   The only remedy seems to be to adopt building regulations
most stringent character and to compel their enforcement by
tial vigilant inspection.   Such a method might seem a temporary
ip to the land owner, but it is absolutely necessary if our shame-
record is to be changed.
3ood work is being clone by various associations practically sub-
by the fire companies, such as the National Board of Fire
writers, the National Fire Protection Association, and the like,
ese associations can only accomplish results by impressing on
iblic that the fact of a greater initial expense in building is
erial and that the main object to be accomplished is to have
composed of buildings of practically fire-proof construction,
al influence of land holders must be met and overcome.   If a
ican form of government is to be considered desirable—and we
ly believe that it is—in this instance as in all others graft and
ust be absolutely done away with.
effective work is being done by all kinds of insurance companies
field of prevention. Perhaps the existence of insurance has been
ial reason for the carelessness of householders. But the active
ign on the part of the companies to prevent the occurrence of
■ils insured against, will itself, if only partially successful, justify
xistence. Such work has been a governmental function in most
ean countries and it has there been fairly well performed. In
mntry, too, the power to make efficient regulations for building

The paper read at a recent meeting of the National Association
of Life Underwriters by Mr.  Bernard R. Rose, of Xew York, on
"Moral Training as a Force in Agency Development" has at the request
of many who heard it, been published in pamphlet form.   The address
abounds in good points and we quote from it as follows:   "I therefore
answer the question, 'What methods of training develop the highest
efficiency   among   soliciting   agents?'   in   just   two   words—'.Moral
"If you now ask, how shall, this moral training be secured,   1
answer:   The solicitor himself must, of course, contribute the most
towards it, by bringing to the work a clean personal life, and by practicing all the active virtues .of ideal citizenship.    But the ground work
for it all, the skeleton around which everything else must be built up,

"No less important, however, is the contribution towards this training, which the home office and the general agent or agency manager
must make.   It would be impossible, in the short space of time allotted
to me, to indicate, even in the barest outline, the many duties which
devolve upon them in the matter.    1 will therefore mention only the
one absolutely indispensable requirement, and that is, they must give

The Opportunities for Investment in Oak
Bay are becoming fewer every day-—
Your money is safer in Oak Bay than in
any other residential portion of Victoria
Will be the finest subdivision in the district. Here
are the following advantages:
Sheltered from the prevailing winds.
Close to the two best car lines in the City.
Close to Skating Rink and finest sand beach in Oak Bay.
Close to the Oak Bay Hotel.
The finest view in Oak Bay.
Two of the finest streets in Oak Bay will run through
the property.   Fine homes all around it.
Select your lot now for a homesite. A Profitable investment. A Quick Profit. Motor Cars at any time to take you
out.   The lots are large, the Prices Small, running from
$1,100 to $2,700
But these prices are only for 5 days, certain. The terms
are most reasonable. One quarter cash, balance 6, 12, 18 and
24 months at 7 per cent. Building restriction $3,000, and no
large lot can be subdivided, ensuring large and beautful homes.
Is the continuation of Monterey avenue, north of Oak Bay
avenue ancl between Cranmore Road. We can show you how
it will make the most beautiful subdivision in Oak Bay. All
the streets will be put through as soon as possible, the work
being started at once. The new main sewer goes through the
property. You cannot appreciate this property until we show
it to you.
This is the last opportunity to secure a first choice in a
large Oak Bay subdivision.   Remember Oak Bay is the cream
of Victoria residential real estate.
Did you buy a lot in "Golf Links Park" when it was put on
the market? If you did, you made from 200 to 300 per cent on
the money you put into it. Did you buy a lot in "Pinewood?"
If you did, you made a good quick profit. Did you buy a lot
on "Reservoir Hill?" If you did, you made one of the best
buys in your life. Buy in Monterey Crescent. It is the
cream of Oak Bay property.

To the Editor of The Week:
Dear Sir,—With reference to the
story, "The Corpse Dance," published
in your June ist number, pray permit me to submit the following corrections: Col. 1, line 13—"fronds,"
instead of "fiords"; Col. 2, line 10-—
Insert after "overhead" the following:
"A heron Happed across—"; Col. 2,
line 19—"free" instead of fire"; Col.
3, line 70—"beating" instead of "heating"; Col. 3, line 73—"correspondingly"; Col. 4, line 88, "looking" instead
of "looked."
As the story will probably be taken
as pure fiction by your readers, I can
assure you that a very ancient, .secret
cult exists among the Coast Tribes,
and most probably among all of the
aboriginal races of America. The
scenes described in the story are
taken from actual facts. Some years
ago, many strange, blood-curdling
rites were practised by the Doctor-
men at their annual festivities. Most
of the customs are dying out, and it
is extremely doubtful if the Corpse
Dance is performed anywhere now.

Sir Matthew Begbie, Chief Justice

evidence was conclusive, and the
judge charged the jury accordingly,
but a verdict of "Not guilty*' was
promptly brought in. The judge was
astonished. "Gentlemen of the jury,"
he said, "this is your verdict, not mine.
On your conscience the disgrace will
rest. Many repetitions of such conduct as yours will make trial by jury
a horrible farce, and the city of Victoria a nest of crime. Go! 1 have
nothing more to say to you." And

It has a flavor of its own, delicious, rich, wholesome and fragrant.
Perhaps the best endorsement of its quality is that once you have tried
it you will drink no other brand, for the rich, smooth and lingering-
flavor of "Reception Tea" has made it a great favorite, not only in
Victoria, but many outside points of the Island. "Reception Tea" is
THIS DISTRICT, and is undoubtedly the most universally satisfactory tea on the market regardless of price. The quality is always

A party of tourists in .1 smal! Filipino village were trying to make the native driver
of a bull-cart understand that they wished
their baggage transferred from the bungalow
to the raihvay station at two p.m. But the
native did not seem to comprehend cither
their gestures or their hybrid language.
Standing near the tourists was a recruit
of the United States army who had been
in the "Islands" just a month and was extremely proud of the few words of "Hog
Spanish" that he had learned. So be offered
his  services   as  interpreter.
"Say, bombre," said hc impressively to the
Filipino, "when the clock on that steeple,
yonder, strikes two, 'ding-ding,' you get your
bull-cart, 'moo-moo,' and earry these trunks
to tbe station, 'too-toot.'   Savvy?"
"You no sabc," solemnly replied the native.
"What-at!" roared tbe interpreter. "Do
you mean to tell mc that you don't understand  your own language?"

THE Staggard Tread Tires
are the most economical you can
buy because the double thickness
and quality of the riding treads equal that
of any two ordinary tires.
Their chief value, however, lies in the protection they afford both passengers and car in checking
every tendency to slip or skid on any kind of wet or
slippery road or when making sharp emergency turns.
which tells why Republic "Staggard Tread" T:res
give more service at less expense and are safer tnan
any other kind.
