THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL
One Dollae Pee Annum
IE IROQUOIS DISASTER
, Twice within one month coffin ships
ave carried their human freight out to
la and left their victims scattered like the
jtsam and jetsam of the ocean. Mr.
Ilimsoll's historic phrase was never more
Itly applied than in the case of the Se-
lelt and the Iroquois. There are many
ten still living who remember the historic
Icasion when, pleading on the floor of the
fouse of Commons for the poor mariners
do had no protection against the cupidity
ship-owners, Mr. Plimsoll was so over-
Ime that he burst into tears and though
Is speech broke down, the sensation proceed by this human touch furnished the
Icessary impetus to carry the Merchants'
tipping Bill safely into port.
Cupidity of Shipowners
|The lives which have been sacrificed to
cupidity of the owners of the Sechelt
Id Iroquois were just as precious as the
pes' of the thousands of British sailors,
|e loss of which Mr. Plimsoll deplored,
arely have Victorians been so . deeply
pved; for although marine disasters of
greater magnitude have unfortunately
len chronicled on our coast, happily not
le is characterized by such sordid fea-
pes as have aroused popular indignation
| connection with the loss of the Iroquois,
jiere has been a very general demand for
arrest of Captain Sears, and it would
Ipear from the published accounts of the
Indent in the columns of the Colonist
pt there should not have been the slight-
hesitation in locking him up.    It is
ficult to speak of his conduct in meas-
Bd terms.    The annals of Britsh sea-
Imship barely furnish a parallel instance
bad judgment, callousness, cowardice
Id neglect.
Misgivings of Safety
lin the minds of several passengers, of
reral observers, and of one or two at
1st of the crew there were the gravest
[sgivings as to the safety of the boat be-
fe she left the wharf at Sidney. Some
ssengers refused to embark, and re-
fned to Victoria.   Others, including the
ill-fated English ladies who hesitated
Jtil the last moment, were induced to go
pard by the assurance of the* captain that
kvould be all right. The purser is re-
fted to have said that "he didn't like
look of things," and the engineer or
l-man that "if anything happened it
luld bs all up." One would bave
lught that these incidents would have
ll some weight with the captain.
Grasping for Dollars
But no; in his grasping for a few extra
liars he loaded his boat, stowed the cargo
I ere it would cost the least to handle it,
Iced ten tons of fertiliser right in the
•im of the boat and some twenty bales
[hay on deck. He claims that there was
|ixty mile gale blowing; if so, the greater
criminality in taking out the boat al-
idy top-heavy with a deck load which
only increased the instability of tho
|sel but offered additional obstruction to
gale.
The Wreck
Dne witness stated that the ill-fated
Isel was taking water within three minis of being in the water. At any rate she
Id not covered half a mile before the mis-
liced cargo shifted, the boat listed and
iver afterwards recovered. From then
j it was a mad plunge ancl a frantic ef-
lt to head back and reach the shore. The
lite and purser both acquainted^ cap-
In with the condition of affairs. He"
Id. them to attempt to readjust the cargo,
It beyond that gave no further instructs for the safety of the passengers or
dealing with the situation.
That Precious Six Minutes
He claims that about six minutes
elapsed from the time he was informed of
the exact condition of affairs until the
deck-house broke away and the hull of the
vessel sank. What might not a resourceful and competent captain have done in
those six minutes, if he had attempted to
organize some measures of relief. Of the
circumstances connected with the launching of the first life-boat one fact stands
out that the captain did not instruct a
competent seaman to enter the boat and
endeavour to navigate it, and to this circumstance may be due the fact that it
speedily foundered.
Abandoned by the Captain
When only a few remained clinging to
the wreck the captain launched the second
life-boat and got into it himself, leaving
at least three men behind. Several joined
him. There is a conflict of testimony as
to whether he invited the remaining ones
to enter the boat or not. Mr. Hartnell,
one of those who clung to the wreckage,
declares that the captain told him to stay
where he was clinging to a floating door
ly oblivious of the fact that he owed at
least some duty to the sorrowing relatives
of those whose lives had been sacrificed by
his negligence. If the former recital,
carefully checked from the published accounts of the disaster, and from the evidence given at the inquest before Coroner
Hart do not more than justify the arraignment of Captain Sears, then indeed is there
no protection for men who go down to the
sea in ships, and no penalty for callous
indifference ancl grasping greed on the
part of the owners of coffin ships.
A Prompt Enquiry
Short of the arrest of the captain, which
is the least concession the Government
might have made to an outraged public
opinion, nothing Avill tend to appease popular indignation except a prompt, exhaustive and competent investigation. This is
of course the duty of the Marine Department of the Federal Government and in
view of the fiasco which resulted in the
case of the Sechelt, when the most important witnesses lied about the seaworthiness
of the vessel, it is greatly to be regretted—
if true as stated in the Victoria Times of
Mr. W. W. Foster of Revelstoke, the recently appointed Deputy Minister
of Works
and hc would drift to shore all right, and'
even in the face of the evidences of the
terrible disaster Avhich surrounded him the
captain called to one of these poor victims
to push him an oar which lay floating on
the water. The captain and the two or
three men who were with him in the boat
got safely to shore and then, following up
the apparent callousness of his previous
conduct, the captain went home and according to one witness, at any rate, did so
without giving any instructions or taking
any steps towards rescue work.
A Question of Salving
One does not wish to judge him too
harshly with the loss of twenty-one lives
to account for, but it came as something
little less than a shock to learn that while
the bodies of many of the victims were
still unrecovered he was busy telephoning
to the B. C. Salvage Company as to the
possibilities of salving his vessel, apparent-
Wednesday—that the same officer, Captain Eddie, is to conduct the enquiry into
the loss of the Iroquois.
A Whitewash
However good his intentions may have
been he utterly failed to get at the truth in
the former case and tlie owners were
"whitewashed" by unreliable evidence.
The Week is but voicing a very general
opinion when it endorses the suggestion of
the Colonist that the Judgj of the Admiralty Court, assisted by the usual expert
Assessors^ would have been the proper
tribunal to deal with such a serious case.
Whoever may conduct the enquiry it may
be taken for granted that the Provincial
Government will be represented by the best
legal talent procurable, in order that some
measure of justice may bo done to the relatives of those who have been so heartlessly
sacrificed.
GEORGE KIRK & CO., LTD.
A few weeks ago comment was made in *,
these columns on the prosecution of a man
named Lehmann for stealing coal. The
prosecution was undertaken by the firm of'■>
George Kirk & Co. Ltd. After a careful |
hearing the case was dismissed and some
not altogether complimentary remarks
were made about the conduct of the prose- .
cuting firm. Since then various rumors |
have been flying round and it is understood that at the present time enquiries .
are being made as to deliveries of coal by
this firm to Work Point Barracks. No
doubt this side of the question will receive
every attention, and The Week is not concerned with it at present. But there is
another side of the question in which every
lover of freedom is vitally interested ancl
that is as to the possibility of a man being
locked up on two separate occasions and
kept in a prison cell, the first time for five
hours, and the second time twelve hours,,
without any charge being made or any information sworn, and all this on the initi- •
ative of a private firm which was able to
induce the police to adopt a course repugnant to every fair-minded man and inimical to the principle of personal liberty.
This was done by some kind of an arrangement, of which the full details have yet
to come to light, between the firm of
George Kirk & Co. Ltd. and Police-Constable Heather. Such particulars as The
Week has been able to glean are set forth
in a statement printed in the current issue
and duly signed and attested by all fli<! "
parties therein referred to. The readers
of The Week are urged to peruse this statement and to bear in mind that both Lehmann ancl Bromsen are poor men, practically without a dollar in the world, and
that they were at the mercy of a firm with
money and influence at its command.
There can be no question of the illegality
of the proceeding, ancl whilst allowing a
great deal of scope to the police in the dis-,
charge of their difficult and onerous duties, .
The Week is positive that the authorities
never contemplated the treatment of a
British subject in such a manner as Bromsen was treated in the present case. This
is a matter of supreme interest to the public ; it involves not merely the rights and
liberty, but the safety of the individual.
Incarceration under such circumstances is
a species of Third Degree torture, which
will never be tolerated where the British
Flag waves. The Week gives publicity to
the facts as deposed, in the firm belief
that the proper authorities will take tho
matter up and see that the offenders are
suitably dealt with. It would appear to
The Week that the Attorney-General and
the Police Commissioners should have.
something to say.
AUTOMOBILE SPEEDING
Attention is directed to a letter from
Mr. Herbert Cuthbert whicli appears in
the current issue of The Week. Mr. Cuthbert is of opinion that he received scant
justice at the hands of the Police in connection with his recent trial for "speeding." Of that the readers of The Week
must judge for themselves; the letter is
inserted solely because the Colonist, to
whicli it was at first tendered refused to
allow Mr. Cuthbert the opportunity of acquainting the public with certain aspects
of his case. The Editor of the Week may
be a "motorphobe" but he believes in fair
play, and the columns of The Week will
always be open for the discussion of both
sides of a question, especially when, as in
the present instance, the writer has tho
courage of his convictions ancl is not
ashamed to sign his name to his communication.
____■ THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APEIL 15, 1911
Stories of treasure hunters always
- possesses a special interest for the average person, but it is not often that
citizens of a quiet and prosperous city
have the opportunity of seeing the
hunters at work. The very idea of
treasure hunting conjures up in the
mind visions of cutlasses, red handkerchiefs, wooden legs and skulls. The
red handkerchiefs are still in evidence
amongst the treasure-hunters in the
Government Street ruins, but the rest
of the romance is lacking. To me the
sight of Mrs. "Lo" patiently delving
with her fingers amongst the rubbish
is a pathetic one. I try to trace the
descent of the Red Man from the
days when he stalked the plains and
forests of his heritage, through the
vicissitudes of his later career down to
the present day, when with dignity
thrown to the winds, he permits his
squaw to grub amongst the white
man's refuse, if perchance she may
find a tinkling glass or a beaded ornament. And I compare my own state
with theirs, and, remembering that
each family has thousands of dollars
lying to its credit as a result of the
recent agreement, I feel indignant that
I also cannot sit down and play in the
dust..
*■*'.**
It is good news to learn that a reform is to be worked at the Free
Library on Yates Street. For some
time past the catalogues have been in
a most unsatisfactory state. There
are at least three different lists compiled, some being labelled "Fiction,"
others "Non-fiction," others again,
"Fiction and Non-fiction." In some
the books are arranged alphabetically,
—in'ffllrers according to their authors.
Owing to carelessness on the part of
the public, these catalogues are often
torn, and always dirty. Moreover,
under the existing arrangements, it is
sometimes hard to get hold of any
sort of a catalogue owing to the
crowd around the counter awaiting
their torn to attention. Last, but by
no means least, hitherto it has been
impossible to pick and choose except
by means of the catalogue.
* *   *
Now I contend that there is only
one person in a thousand wh6 goes
into the library with more than one
definite idea as to what book he or she
wants to get out. Most people are
anxious to obtain one particular book,
and when they find that it is already
out, which it always is, owing to the
natural law of "cussedncss in general,"
they look over the catalogue to see if
there is any other which attracts their
attention. This is where the annoying part comes in. Just because you
like one book by an author, there is
no certainty that you will like another.
You can't judge by the name of a
novel any more than you can by the
binding. Personally, I always like to
glance through the pages of a book
before I take it out, but as things arc
at present, this is impossible, unless a
patron has the nerve to ask for a
book, go through thc formality of
changing cards, etc., look through it
and if dissatisfied, ask for another.
Apart from the nerve required there
is the time wasted to be considered.
Catalogues are all very well for choosing books on serious subjects, and for
directing thc attention to novels
which may be worth considering after
a preliminary inspection.
* *   *
But, when all is said and done,
ninety-nine per cent, of the users of
public libraries nse them for fiction,
and not for heavy stuff. Very foolish
of them, I know; but what will you?
It is human nature. It comes as a
great relief then to know that within
a very short time wc shall bc allowed
to roam amongst the shelves and pick
and choose our novels for out selves,
aided thereto by new catalogues, systematically arranged. This is the only
•sensible and really satisfactory me
thod of dealing with a public which
is quite willing to own that in the
matter of fiction it rarely knows its
own mind, and is easily prejudiced for
or against a book by the tenour of the
opening, or in the case of the ladies,
of thc closing paragraphs.
* *   *
And whilst on the subject of the
Free Library, there is another point
which I would like to make. In order
to protect the trustees and to ensure
that books are not taken out by irresponsible persons, an introduction is
demanded signed by a property owner
in the city. This is reasonable enough
and provides for the cash value of the
books if by chance they are not returned. But why should it be necessary for the property owners to make
a personal trip to the Library for thc
purpose of effecting the introduction?
Surely the same results could be attained if he were to fill in the required form at his own house or office.
So long as the Library posseses the
signature of a property owner, over
which he declares himself responsible
for any book borrowed on his introduction, what does it matter whether
the lineaments of his physiognomy
are known to the attendant or not?
The reason I make this complaint is
that would-be borrowers frequently
find it difficult to obtain an introduction. It is asking more than a small
favour to request a busy man to walk
up all the way to the Library just to
sign his name.
* *   *
It has long been the boast of Victoria that she has been singularly
immune from the presence of crooks,
thieves and other noisome pests of
similar type. Doubtless her situation
on an island has been a big factor in
this happy state of affairs, together
with the vigilance exercised by the
local police in looking out for undesirables on the boats. But it would
appear that just at presenf this proud
boast is to be denied us. Undoubtedly there is a clever gang of sneak
thieves at work whose specialty is
that of hotel robbing. This class of
thief is particularly hard to catch in
a country where the general laxity in
regard to hotel inspection is so great.
Many men of unimpeachable character are accustomed to use hotels
more like clubs than as hotels; they
make appointments there, write their
letters and rest their bodies all at the
hotel's expense without feeling called
upon to do more than buy a drink, if
even that. Under such circumstances
it is easy for a "crook" in the guise
of a gentleman, to make himself sufficiently at home to allow of his wandering round the up-stairs corridors
and making the best use of his time
whilst up there.
* *   *
The only remedy which can be suggested is that visitors should be more
strongly impressed with the advisability of deposting valuables in the hotel
safe. The mere act of locking one's
bedroom door is of little avail. An
ordinary door lock will not keep out
any determined man who wants to get
in. Of course, it is annoying to have
to keep on depositing valuables and
taking them out again, but it is one
of the pains and penalties of travelling
or leading an hotel life. There have
been two recent cases in Victoria
whicii should serve as an example to
many. A lady was robbed of valuable
jewellery, which was taken out of her
bedroom during her absence, in one
hotel, and a man who was accustomed
to sleep with his door open, was robbed of a gold watch in another. In
cases like these no possible blame
can attach to the hotel management,
provided that they afford their visitors
every opportunity of depositing goods
with the clerk, who will then undertake the responsibility for them.
* *   *
But not only is Victoria suffering
from the depredations of this class of
criminal. There is another pest
abroad, who, though not quite so
criminal in point of fact, is every bit
as amenable to the law. I refer to
the automobile borrower. This enterprising gentleman would not style
himself a thief, probably not even a
criminal. He is quite aware that he
could never get away with a car. No,
he is an ingenuous individual, and
when he feels like going for a ride, he
politely borrows a neighbour's car,
only omitting the preliminary courtesy of asking permission. He is a
dangerous fellow this, because the
very, fact of his being able to drive a
car argues that he is a man of intelligence and practical attainments. A
case in point was brought to my notice on this very day of writing. A
gentleman well-known in Victoria left
his car in his barn, which acted as a
make-shift garage, taking the precaution of seeing to it that his engines
were inaccessible. After his departure the car was taken out and used
by some person at present unknown,
who was sufficiently an expert to be
able to run the car by means of some
improvised implement (not knowing a
thing about cars or machinery I cannot speak technically), made out of a
piece of old brass, to use ft and incidentally to do about $75 worth of
damage. It is to be hoped that the
public may be able to lay their hands
on some of these unlicensed "borrowers," and that a severe sentence will
be passed on them.
*   *   *
It is some little time since I have
had to chronicle any instances of
women being molested in the public
streets, and if the blackguards who
venture to insult girls and women
could be treated in future as the one
of whom I am about to tell, it will be
a long time before I shall have to
chronicle another. An Old Country
girl in service in Victoria had occasion to go to the post-office the. other
evening. Whilst there she noticed a
man hanging around with no ostensible business, who on her exit bade her
"Good-night." Taking no notice of
him she walked,*on, and being of a
robust frame and healthy constitution
she chose to walk home instead pf
taking a car. Judge of her surprise
when she found at the corner of the
road in which she lived the same man,
who had evidently taken the car with
the object of meeting her again.
"Good evening," he said.
"What do you want?" asked the
girl.
"Oh, nothing," he responded; "I
just wanted to make your acquaintance."
"And do you mean to say that you
have come all the way from the post-
office to say that?" flashed back the
girl.
Then came the finale. The girl, as
I have said, was robust above the average, and the noisome beast got it
right in the eye. There was nothing
for him to do but to fall back into the
gutter where he belonged, and where
he may be now for all that the girl
knows or cares.
*   *   *
Now that's all right. But has it
come to this that here in Victoria our
young women must attend the gymnasium, or take lessons in jiu-jitsu or
spend money on attaining the physical
culture degree? Of course we all
know that a few month? ago such
outrages were almost unheard of in
the city, and that they have only been
in evidence since the policy of non-
segregation was carried into force, but
what is to happen if they continue?
All our women are not young giantesses with muscles in proportion. It
is to be hoped that this incident to
which I have given some publicity
may serve its purpose in scaring the
next cur lest he also may find the iron
hand beneath the velvet glove. That
some young woman may have the
strength of hand to catch and hold
the next offender and the strength of
mind to hand him over to the gaol
whence he may depart for the whipping-post is the pious wish of the

EUREKA!   What a find!"
said the first scientist.   "Here is conclusive proof
of all our theories.    See this rock, it is as round
as a barrel and just about the same shape and size.   It
must have rolled for ages in the bed of some swift stream.
Note how smooth it is."
Said thc second scientist, "It is unlike any rock we
have met with before in British Columbia. It must have
been brought from a great distance, probably by some
mighty iceberg in the ages that are gone."
Said thc third scientist, "There are some foothills of
mountains here, it may have come down in a glacier."
Said the fourth scientist, "It is unlike any rock to be
found on earth. It must have dropped from the Moon or
Mars. Here comes a native of the soil, I will ask him if
there are any Indian traditions concerning it."
"See here, my good man, do you know anything about
this strange rock?"
"Aw, yaas, I think so," drawled thc Goldstream man,
"That there used ter be a bar'l o' cement the Power House
folkses av the B. C. Electric Railway left here some timer
go."
"Eureka!" That's what many a man ejaculates upon
his first glass of G. H. Mumm & Co.'s "Extra Dry." So
different is it from other champagnes. And hereafter he
always calls for the bottles with the pink cap.

The Majestic Theatre
A scene from the French Revolution was one of the big hits at the

Another picture worthy of remark as

one entitled "Practical Brook Trout

interesting and entertaining.
"The Lily"
"The Lily," David Belasco's dramatic sensation of last season, will be
one of the early attractions coming
here from Mr. Belasco's own theatre,
New York, with Nance O'Neil, Chas
Cartwright, the famous Belasco company, and presented exactly the same
as during its run of an entire year in
New York City.
"The Lily" is a play in four acts,
adapted from the French of Pierre
Wolff and Gaston Leroux, by Mr. Belasco, and as a piece of dramatic literature will endure for many years, as
it is a play of ideas as well as drama.

Victoria Theatre
With a record unsurpassed and probably unequalled by any contemporaneous musical comedy star, Miss
Marie Dressier, under the direction of
Mr. Lew Fields, opens at the Victoria
Theatre Tuesday night, April 18, for
a two-night's engagement, presenting
that unique musical play "Tillie's
Nightmare," which last December
completed the hitherto unheard of feat
of playing 389 consecutive performances to practically absolute capacity
at Lew Field's Herald Square Theatre, New York. The fact that Miss
Dressier never has been seen in Victoria has occasioned much curiosity
and friendly anticipation, for her reputation as being "the funniest woman
on the English-speaking stage" has
preceded her. And it also is interesting to note that in this whirlwind
tour, which has embraced only a few

n Roman's Theatre
Je first time in my life I have
(presentation of the national
jame of pclota played upon
ng picture screen. Though in
[ticular instance the action
ce so quickly that it almost
isible for the spectator to
ny idea of the fascination of
e, still its reproduction was
nstance of the universality of
latograph, which seems to
everywhere now-a-days.
"The Lily" receives its title from a
class of women well recognized in
France, but little known as a special
type in America; they are the women
who have been denied the joys of love
and matrimony, simply to appease the
traditions of sex. In France everything is sacrificed for the advancement of the sons, while in this country it is for the sake of the daughters.
Around this sex distinction is woven
a drama that for dramatic intensity
and absorbing interest, notning like it
has been seen within tne last decade.
Mr. Belasco, with a consistency that
has characterized his big productions
in the past, will in addition to sending
his original company, send the massive Belasco production intact.
Nance O'Neil never gave a greater
exposition of her marvellous powers
than she does of "The Lily," Odette;
a scholarly, sincere and artistic delineation coloured by physical vigor
and emotional intensity. Charles Cartwright, the   eminent   English actor,
of the largest cities of the United
States and Canada, with only two
others on thc Pacific coast save Portland—namely Los Angeles and San
Francisco—Miss Dressier is surrounded with identically the same cast of
principals and chorus as during the
memorable New York run.
"Tillie's Nightmare," like the star
herself, stands unique in theatrical annals. Miss Dressier has played the
role of Tillic Blobbs, a boarding house
drudge, for ninety-two consecutive
weeks, without missing a single scheduled performance. And thc play itself, written by Mr. Edgar Smith,
with music by Mr. Baldwin Sloane,
posseses a consistent and coherent
plot—something unusual in these days
of made-over-night musical comedy.
Miss Dressier, as the household
drudge, falls asleep while reading the
magazine section of a Sunday newspaper, and dreams wondrous dreams

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Owing to April 14th being Good
Friday the current issue of The
Week went to press on Wednesday. Readers are requested to
bear this fact in mind as otherwise
some of our Editorial comment
may appear  to  be out  of  date.
The circling years bring with them
many reminders of the flight of time,
not a few of which have historic associations of the most important character. To the Christian the associations of Easter are historic in the
fullest sense of the term. Whatever
garb romance, poetic imagination and
religious fervour may have woven
around the great Christian festival, it
is upon its authenticity as a historic
episode that the Faith of Christianity
is built, and it is on each recurrence
of Eastertide that the overwhelming
significance of the Resurrection is
brought to many millions of men.
The greatest theologian and logician of the Christian Church, St. Paul,
conceded that "if Christ be not risen
then is our preaching vain and your
faith is also vain." It cannot, therefore, be too emphatically reasserted
that the crux of the Christian Faith
is the Resurrection of its Founder
from the dead. In the storm of criticism which has waged around the
Scriptures, especially in these latter
days, this impregnable fortress,
though frequently assailed, has never
been shaken. Indeed, despite the
sweeping away of not a few of thc
fetishes which men in their blindness
had cherished for ages, human grip on
this cardinal doctrine has strengthened. And not unnaturally, for the
floating away of the spars has left but
the Rock of Ages to cling to, and
upon that Rock the Christian Church
is built.
But all the exquisite theology which
has been evolved during two thousand
years contemplation of the sacred
mystery of Eastertide will bc expounded during the coming season
from every pulpit in Christendom. It
is to the simpler, every-day lessons
that the mind will more easily turn.
A contemplation of the stately lily,
which is now universally associated
with this season, and which symbolises in its broadest sense the principle of Resurrection, will remind a
struggling world not less of the renaissance of buried hopes than of the
ultimate union of severed friendships.
Man cannot live by bread alone,
neither can he live in a world of sorrow, suffering and disappointment, unless the seed of hope is for ever germinating and fructifying in his breast.
The most terrible sight in the world
is the sight o_'_ face which denotes
that all hope has fled. The finest
sight in the world is thc sight of a
face which bespeaks conviction in the
triumph of right, and a determination
to emerge from the darkest clouds
into another, and mayhap a successful,
struggle for the ultimate goal. The
psychology of the human soul correctly analyzed is a recognition of this
elementary truth, and of the fact that
all the enterprises of mankind upon
which they stake their very existence,
are dependent upon thc survival of
Hope and the deep-rooted belief,
which no disaster can eradicate, that
ultimately they must triumph.
Ordinarily men would refer this
creed to the general impression induced by success in the affairs of life.
They have reduced it to scientific, and
not infrequently to economic principles, arguing that certain results must
of necessity tullow certain lines of
conduct. In other words, that on the
sum total of human achievement may
be inscribed a universal "quod erat
demonstrandum." This is the half-
truth which is so misleading; just as
misleading as the philosophy which in
the grim exactitude of its logic excludes Faith. It takes no account of
the vital spark of Hope, the predominance of which means so much to
every human life.
It is safe to say that no two men
achieve precisely the same results
though they may proceed by the
same rules. The difference is due
mainly to the vibrations in the pendulum of Hope which are as constant
and definite as those sensitive earth
tremors of which seismography takes
account. Every clouding of Hope,
however tenuous, imposes a check,
and when these checks, of which life
is so full and which come in the form
of disappointments, disasters, weakness or bereavement, break down the
spirit, men lose their grip and plod
along wearily, with downcast eyes, no
longer "looking to the hills for
strength."
This is the true significance of eternal hope, thc one uplifting and elevating influence in human life, which is
as essential as the air we breathe, and
whicli survives all the bufferings of
time and sense.
Many men have despaired. The records of human endeavour which are
only partly written 'in \books, but
which are unerringly engraved in
"eternal brass" will one day reveal
how many lives have expired when
hope was snuffed out, but the same
records will also show how a fir.n
faith in the Resurrection has ever
been the sheet anchor of despairing
ones, and how all faith in the destiny
of the race and the ultimate triumph
of good has in the last issue been
based on the historic truth of the
great Easter happening and humble
reliance on a Risen Lord.
Victoria, B.C.,
April 12th, 1911.
We, the undersigned, William
Blakemore, Editor and Manager of
The Week, and Leonard McLeod
Gould, Secretary of the same, hereby
certify that the following statements
were made to us in the office of The
Week, at 1208 Government Street,
Victoria, on Wednesday, April 12th,
1911, there being also present F. R.
Lehrmann.
A Hindu named Bromsen stated
that on Wednesday or Thursday, the
22nd or 23rd of March last, at the
time when the case of George Kirk
& Co., Ltd., against Lehrmann was
in court the said Bromsen was visited at his place of residence by a
police officer accompanied by a son
of Mr. George Kirk, thc same son
who gave evidence in court. Kirk
addressed Bromsen and said: "You
saw Lehrmann steal coal. You • can
give evidence of that." Bromsen replied: "No, I did not see him steal
coal." Kirk then said: "I shall go
and fetch a policeman to put you in
gaol if you don't say you saw Lehrmann steal coal." He fetched a policeman. The policeman said to
Bromsen: "God damn you, what's the
matter with you that you won't tell
you saw Lehrmann steal the coal?
God damn you, you show me where
Lehrmann steal coal and you won't
go to gaol." Another Hindu, who
was present named Inda Singh became annoyed at this and asked:
"Who are you calling God damn?"
and offered to fight if he would come
down to his place. He heard the
conversation between the officer and
Bromsen. On Bromsen firmly refusing to give evidence against Lehrmann the officer took him to the
cells. This would be somewhere
about 10 o'clock at night.    He was
kept locked up till next morning;
no information was laid and no
charge made against him. Next
morning he was taken into court by
a policeman but was not called upon
to give evidence and was not further
detained in custody.
Bromsen further stated that about
noon on Thursday, March 16th, he
had been taken to the police station
by a detective and locked up for five
hours, but no information was laid
and no charge made. Bromsen also
states that Mr. Kirk, senior, said to
him: "If you will say you saw Lehrmann stealing coal I will give you
some money." He also said: "I will
raise your wages from $2.00 to $2.25
a day and give you regular work."

Automobile Speeding
[This communication was refused
insertion by the Colonist.]
Sir,—I desire to take exception,
through you, to the remark made by
Magistrate Jay after my case was
dismissed yesterday morning to the
effect that he hoped that the Auto
Club would caution me against speeding as published in this morning's
issue.
The cases which have been brought
against me in the Police Court for
speeding were both grotesque. In
the first case, when I was served with
a summons, I telephoned to the Police Court for information as to the
time, and was told it was half-past
five o'clock, whicii would be when I
was going up Rockland Avenue. I
told the policeman at the time that
that was absurd as my car would not
go up the hill in its then condition
at that speed; but when I came to
defend the case the time was changed
to within a few minutes to six o'clock
and it was stated that I was going
down the avenue, while as a matter
of fact, proved beyond a doubt, I
was not in the avenue at all within
twenty minutes of that time; and our
evidence showed that I was going
very slowly—my own evidence that
I was not going ten miles an hour.
Yet I was fined for speeding, which
was simply absurd.
The second case is a most outrageous example of police methods.
I charge now Constable Beltinck
with giving evidence which was absolutely false, and I claim that he
must have known that it was false
when he gave it; that he laid information against me for which there
was no justification whatever, and in
order to justify that, swore to things
which were absolutely untrue.
In the public interest, this matter
should be sifted to the bottom. I
was charged by him with driving at
the rate of 25 miles an hour. I
knew myself that I was not going
above eight, but would have had no
means of proving it, and would have
been convicted HAD IT NOT BEEN
FOR THE DISINTERESTED,
VOLUNTARY EVIDENCE OF
AN EYE-WITNESS WHO, UNKNOWN TO ME, SAW MY NUMBER TAKEN AND REALIZING
THE INJUSTICE OF IT, VOLUNTEERED THE INFORMATION
THAT I WAS "DRIVING SLOWLY, CAREFULLY AND IN A
LEISURELY MANNER.
Now, Sir, I claim this is a gross
injustice. A policeman who will
swear falsely, or even stretch a point,
and has such rotten judgment as to
be unable to tell the difference between ten and twenty-five miles an
hour—especially in a public park in
tji.e middle of Sunday afternoon
when: there are hundreds of people
around—should not be allowed to remain in a position where he can do
the same injustice to other people.
This is very distateful to me, but
I consider that I have a duty to perform to the public just as much as

A Million in New Steel Rails
The G. T. R. has ordered 40,000

Cape Breton, mills to replace 260
miles of its tracks in Western Ontario. The order amounts to more than
$1,000,000. The company will ship

They will reside at the Government
House. The primary object of the
visit is tb attend the annual competition for the Earl Grey musical and
dramatic contest, whicii takes place
here during the week of April 24. The
visit may also include the musical festivals of the empire, in which the
SSheffield choir will take part.
C. P. R. to the Rescue
It is believed that satisfactory arrangements have been made whereby
a Kaslo syndicate will purchase the
Kaslo &, Slocan line from the Great
Northern Railway, secure Provincial
Government aid in rebuilding it, and
turn it over to the C. P. R. for operation. Mr. S. Griffiths, Government
consulting engineer, has gone to Kaslo
to make an examination of the property, on behalf of the Government
authorities, it is understood. It is
also asserted that before he left for
Winnipeg, Mr. F. W. Peters, assistant to Mr. William Whyte, vice-president of thc C. P. R., who has been
on the coast for some weeks in connection with various matters, took up
with the Government the question of
operating the road.
Still Coming
It is estimated that between two
and three hundred settlers a month
are coming into the Fraser Valley.
New Westminster gets, on the average, about fifty a month. These people are coming from such distant
points as Nottingham, London and
Glasgow, and some few are from
the Canadian Northwest. The new
arrivals are of a fine type, a large
number of them being retired military
and naval officers, who take up land
for investment and possibly with a
view to doing some farming on a
small scale. The majority have a
moderate amount of capital.
New Boating Club
A boating club has been formed in
Chilliwack for the purpose of making
extensive improvements on the Hope
River, a branch of the Fraser River,
which skirts the city on the north.
During most of the summer months
it contains sufficient water for boating, but becomes shallow when the
water lowers in September. It is the
intention of the club to raise a two-
foot dam at the mouth and to clean
the river bed, removing all the snags
and bars. A tract of land will be
purchased and a boathouse erected.
It will probably be necessary to secure the consent of the various property owners along the river before
the water can be raised, but so far
no objections have been made, while
several owners have expressed themselves as favoring the project, including the Indians, whose reservation
fronts the river.

Great Coal Fields of Graham
Island to be Developed by
Victoria and Vancouver
People
The British Pacific Coal Co., Limited, offers limited
block of shares at 25 cents, par value $1.00 each
As early as the year 1878 the late Dr. G. M.
Dawson, perhaps the most eminent geologist ever
actively engaged in historical research in Canada,
visited and most thoroughly explored, among other
portions of the Province of British Columbia,
Queen Charlotte Islands."
Unless the readers of this advertising announcement have familiarized themselves with our northern
country it will not be possible for them to fully
comprehend the great wealth of this northern
empire.
The Queen Charlotte Islands, consisting of hundreds of smaller islands and in the major portion
Graham Island to the north and Moresby Island to
the south, rise up out of the Pacific Ocean, sheltering a great portion of the main land of British
Columbia and form the western boundary for what
is known as Hecate Strait.
Dr. Dawson, in his report on the coal measures
of Graham Island, emphasizes no{ only the quality
of the coal but the extensiveness of the field.
Graham Island, named after an officer of the
Hudson's Bay Company, is the largest and most
northerly portion of the Queen Charlotte group and
is immediately opposite Prince Rupert, the Pacific
terminus of that great transcontinental railway now
almost completed, the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Prince Rupert is six hundred and fifty miles
nearer Yokohama than Victoria or Vancouver and
five hundred miles nearer Alaska than Vancouver
Island.
From Skidegate Inlet to Port Simpson or Port
Essington is one hundred and fifteen iniles while it
is but eighty miles to Prince Rupert city. This
means that the coal properties on Graham Island
not only control one of the greatest fuel markets in
the world, but on account of its extensive frontage
on salt water with a deeply dented coast line has at
its command the cheapest of shipping facilities by
boat to most of the world.
Skidegate Inlet was discovered in 1850 by Major
William Downie. Since that time this portion of
Graham Island has received more or less attention
of prospectors and miners visiting the northern part
of the province.
Mr. Alexander Faulds, M.E.M.; M.E., consulting
engineer of Vancouver, on October 27th, in the year
1910, submitted a most comprehensive report on the
property now controlled by The British Pacific Coal
Company, Limited.
In his report Mr. Faulds, using as a basis of
calculation 8320 acres, estimated the coal tonnage at
thirty-six millions of tons.
This estimate is based on one seam of coal only.
There are five other seams, in the property not
included.
Herewith is an extract from Mr. Fauld's report:
APPRAISAL
Your properties are very valuable, being of adequate commercial assemblage and magnitude and
excellently located, with their translocation facilities, the potentialities of which, from thc estimated
quantities of coal they are likely to contain are very
vast and practically unlimited in depth.
"The value of 36,000,000 tons of bituminous coal
in your properties for one coal scam 6 feet thick
should be not less than $120 per acre, and anthracite
not less than $180 per acre, the mean or average of
which would be $150 per acre, exclusive of agricultural and timber value."
These are most important facts, absolutely essential to the appraisal of these properties towards industrial enterprises.
The.se 8320 acres or thereby are an excellent and
adequate commercial assemblage for colliery operations capable of producing a daily output of 1000
tons for about 144 years.
Taking the capitalization a t$l,500,000 at 162-3
per cent, gives $250,000 per annum, and taking an
output ,of 1000 tons daily or 250,000 annually at a
profit of $1.00 per ton would produce $250,000 per
annum, or the capital recouped in six years, adding
another year for contingencies, making seven years,
or say altogether at the utmost a period of eight
years.
"Taking the estimated tonnage of 36,000,000 during the life of the mine at $1.00 per ton would give
a clear profit of $36,000,000, or $22.50 for every dollar
invested."
The assembled area of about 8320 acres reported
upon arc held under licenses from the Provincial
Government, which includes the coal rights aud surface, with unpurchased or unleased timber thereon.
The coal in the property of the British Coal
Company, Limited, is commonly known as anthracite, whicii is the character of the coal mined in
Pennsylvania and in a number of. the Old Country
mines. It is the hardest quality of coal mined in
the world, does not disintegrate on being exposed
to the air, and will not soil the hands. There is a
noticeable absence of dust, so distasteful in the
household and the streets, and the minimum quantity of ash, gas, soot, or clinker in burning.
The very fact that this coal is so desirable for
domestic and manufacturing purposes will place a
premium on the output of the mines of this Company, since the anthracite coal belt in British
Columbia is very limited.
This means a very wide horizon to the anthracite
coal market, and wherever obtainable will naturally
be given a preference by the consumer.
The expense of marketing is no greater than that
of the inferior grades, since a ton of coal is a ton,
no matter of what quality.
The fact that the British Pacific Coal Company,
Limited, may ship its output by water, places the
Company in the enviable position, not enjoyed by
many other coal companies in the United States or
Canada. That is, there can be no shortage of cars,
no excessive freight rates. The Company can load
direct from its bunkers, either into its own boats or
those of competing shipping companies.
PROPERTY CARRIES VALUABLE
TIMBER.
There is sufficient timber on the surface of the
Company's property to build, if required at any
time, boats or bargqs to handle the coal output of
the mine; also to supply all the timber required in
conjunction With the working of the mine, the construction of all the mine buildings and surface structures, also wharves and piers.
A limited block of shares in the British Pacific
Coal Company, which are held by the Trustee, T.
R. Morrow, are now offered for subscription, the
proceeds of which are to be used in further developing and equipping the property.
The opening price is 25c per share. No applications shall be received for less than 100 shares. All
cheques and applications must be directed to T. R.
Morrow, Trustee. The terms of sale of shares are:
10 cents per share cash with application, balance in
three equal monthly payments.
On the completion of the sale of the 25-cent issue
lhe price will be advanced to 35c, 40c or 50c per
share at whicii new price but a limited block will
he offered to the public.
These shares should be worth and sell for $1.00
inside of one year. The shares have a par value of
$1.00 each and are fully paid up and non-assessable.
Eminent engineers say that coal may be shipped
from the property in profitable quantities within
six months' work.
This proposition will bear the closest investigation.    Every element of chance has been eliminated.
Those who desire to acquire shares in the British
Pacific Coal Company, Limited, during the present
25c issues should make their anplications early,
since, judging from the number of inquiries, the 25-
cent issue will only be on the market a few days.
The Victoria offices of the Trustee, J. E.  Morrow, and the Company are situated at
617 Trounce Ave.

in the House of Commons last month
announced that besides the five aeroplanes already bought, he had ordered

£133.000.

Mr. Chamberlain's Health

the good effect of the Riviera sunshine and warmth. Not only does he
look better, but he is out walking
every day and is much stronger, his
step .being firmer and more vigorous
than when he arrived at Cannes. Mr.
and Mrs. Chamberlain will remain at

Cat and Dog Plague
It would appear that an epidemic of
a little known disease is sweeping
through London, dealing death to
hundreds of cats and dogs. The ailment, which is comparatively new to
England, having made its first appearance in Bristol a few years ago, is
known to veterinary surgeons as
Stuttgart, or contagious gastro-enteri-
tis. At present the epidemic is most
marked in the southern suburbs, but
several valuable cats whose homes are
in thc West End have in the last few
days died from this mysterious malady.
Sir Hiram Maxim's Future
Sir Hiram Maxim recently announced his resignation as a director
of the firm of Vickers, Sons & Maxim,
which took effect on February 5 last,
his 71st birthday. Interviewed Sir
Hiram said: "They say we ought al!
to retire when we are over 70, but
we're not going to. Some of us are
going on working. With me it is a
case of returning to my first love-
flying machines. I am only retiring
from Vickers, Sons & Maxim to have
more freedom to devote to this. My
retirement is not a complete retirement either, for I am still the firm's
consulting engineer, and have a large
interest in the business."
Southampton's Huge Dock Scheme
The Bill promoted by the Southampton Harbour Board for the deepening of Southampton water has been
passed by the Committee of the
House of Commons. Mr. Balfour
Browne intimated that the board had
decided to proceed with the Bill despite the elimination of the clauses
proposing additional charges. He explained that the project for deepening
Southampton Water was not absolutely imminent, but said that when larger
liners were constructed it would be
necessary to secure a depth of 38 feet
The board proposed to do so far as
possible out of their own revenue,
and when that was exhausted they
would desire powers to borrow
£200,000.
Death of An R. A.
The death of Mr. Ernest Crofts, R.
A., keeper of the Royal Academy,
occurred on March 19 last from
heart failure. Trained for his art in
London and at Dusseldorf by a pupil
of Horace Vernet, Mr. Crofts, who
was born at Leeds in 1847, made his
first appearance at the Royal Academy in 1874 with a painting entitled
"A Retreat," an episode of the Franco-German war. From that time he
devoted his main energy to the art
of battle painting, and principally to
the Napoleonic and the English wars.
He was elected to the Associatcship
in 1878, and became a full Royal Academical! in 1896, his diploma picture
being "To the Rescue," an episode of
the Civil Wars. An admirable
draughtsman, with a sound knowledge
of human and equine anatomy, and always reliable as regards his archaeological facts, Mr. Crofts was a vivid
illustrator rather than a "painter" in
the true sense of the word.
The "Kynge's Beastes"
The restoration of Henry VIII's
stone bridge at Hampton Court has
received its final touch by the erection, on the pinnacles that rise from
the parapets, of ten "Kynge's
Beastes," bearing, shields, with the
arms, badges and devices of King
Henry VIII. and his Queen, Jane Seymour. That regal splendour is thus
restored to the western front of the
Tudor building, and especially the
great Gatehouse, which it possessed
for 150 years, but has been absent
during the last two centuries. Thus
the bridge, begun by Henry VIII., for
his "owne darling," Anne Boleyn, finished by him for her successor, Jane
Seymour, covered, up by command of
William and Mary, discovered iri the
reign of Queen Victoria, and excavated and repaired by direction of
King Edward VII., now receives, by
order of King George V, its final restoration to its original appearance of
375 years ago.

BIG ADDITION TO VICTORIA'S SEWER SYSTEM
At an early date the ratepayers will be called upon' to vote on
by-law authorizing the raising of the sum of $290,000 for surface
fains. The city council at its first meeting since the elections
pt night adopted in principle the report of the city engineer recom-
ending that the above amounts be expended. The engineer rented that he has had levels taken and estimates prepared for the
rnishing of sewerage facilities for the unsewered sections of the
He divides the city into sections. The sewerage from the
Jrtheast section lying north of Edmonton road and east of Cook
ad and east of Cook street naturally drains eastward to Oak Bay,
liere for obvious reasons it cannot be discharged near the shore,
[fe must be carried to a point near Todd Island where the tidal
Irrents are strong enough to ensure a thorough dilution of the
yage. It is proposed to carry the-sewage in three submerged
tel pipes encased in concrete to the point of discharge, appproxi-
Itely 2,200 feet from the shore of Oak Bay. This system has
en designed for a population of 30,000 in the city and 24,000 in
tk Bay.
The northwest section is bounded on the north and west by
city limits, on the south by the Gorge road and on the east by a
_ between Stevenson place and Cook street and comprises an
a of 280 acres.   The sewerage system for this section is designed
a population of 10,000 persons. The levels show that the land
ins naturally into a deep ravine, discharging into Victoria har-
■ at a point on the Gorge road east of Washington avenue. This
item will also be a gravity one and will be discharged from sep-
tanks at the mouth of the ravine.
t is proposed to drain the Victoria West (Burleith sub-division)
m septic tanks into the Victoria Arm at the foot of the Crescent.
e engineer estimates the cost of this work at $190,000 for the
•theast section; $40,000 for the northwest section; $10,000 for the
rleith section, and $50,000 for filling in sewered streets.
Alderman Moresby pointed out that it will be necessary to
erview the Oak Bay council and ascertain what portion of the
t of the system of the northeast section the municipality will
for that portion between Foul Bay road and the sea. He ob-
ted strongly to permitting sewage to discharge into Victoria
n.   Anything that would tend to pollute the waters of the har-
would hurt one of the city's finest assets. Despite what some
>ple state Alderman Moresby believed that even sewage treated
septic tanks should not be allowed to discharge in the harbor.
Vlayor Morley explained that three years ago when the city deed to permit owners along the arm to use septic tanks it was
the understanding that such tanks should be done away with
en a proper sewer system was installed.
Alderman Langley, and in fact all the members of the board
>ressed themselves strongely against permitting any discharge
sewage into the harbor.
The engineer's suggestions were referred to Aldermen Mores-
and Gleason for further information and report.

BUSINESS DEAL OF IMPORTANCE
I i
it
An important transaction in local business circles, one which
will result in the taking over by the J. N. Harvey Company,
Limited, of Vancouver, of the business of the B. Williams Company, clothiers, hatters, etc., Yates Street, will take effect on May
I, The deal was finally arranged last Saturday afternoon when
Mr. J. N. Harvey, president and general manager of the purchasing
company, arrived in the city on the afternoon boat, accompanied
by Mr. Alfred Shaw, auditor of the J. N. Harvey Company, Limited. Mr. W. T. Williams, proprietor of the local concern, will become a member of the J. N. Harvey Company and form one of the
Board of Directors, becoming local manager.
To many Victorians the B. Williams Company has been a
household word for many years. Founded in 1881 by Mr. Benjamin Williams, it has occupied an important position in the local
business world. In 1885, when the founder of the firm died, Mr.
W. T. Williams, his son, took charge, leaving school for that purpose, and he has been proprietor ever since. The recent rumor
that Mr. Williams was going out of business was contradicted by
Mr. Harvey, who said he would become a member of the J. N.
Harvey Company.
The Board of Directors of the new concern will be composed
of Mr. J. N. Harvey, president and general manager; Mr. J. A.
Harvey, K. C, of Vancouver; Mr. George H. Waterbury, of Wat-
erbury & Rising, St. John, N. B.; and Mr. W. T. Williams.

Blanchard and Broughton Streets, $20,000; a 60-foot frontage on
Pandora Avenue, near the Metropolitan Methodist Church, $20,000
and a 30-foot frontage on the north side of Government Street,
east of Discovery Street, $10,000.
VANCOUVER CUSTOMS  REVENUE
The Vancouver Customs revenue showns an increase of over
50 per cent, over the last fiscal year. The Customs collections for
1910-n totalled $6,230,000 as against $3,832,338 for 1909-io. So
great has been the rush of business that the departmental staff
has been greatly increased in order to have the demands met immediately. Land Registry returns show the same satisfactory
progress, the total for the fiscal year being $233,820, an increase
of 15 per cent, over last year. The building total for the month
of March was over $2,000,000, another record. Thus Vancouver
takes the leading place on the continent, when the size and population of the city is taken into account. Even on a straight comparison the record places Vancouver among the leaders in the
building line.
ANOTHER SIGN OF THE TIMES
In order to accommodate the tourist and general traffic of
Kootenay Lake and the west arm, which has been increasing so
rapidly during recent years and which is expected to become of
still greater volume with the opening of the new tourist hotel at
Balfour about the middle of May, the C. P. R. have decided to
build a new steel boat for operation between Nelson and Kootenay
Landing.
The new boat will in many ways be an improvement upon the
latest of the levithians of inland waters, the steamer Bonnington,
which is now being completed at the Nakusp Shipyards for use on
the Arrow Lakes. Plans of the new craft for Kootenay Lake service were forwarded to Winnipeg recently by Captain J. C. Gore,
superintendent of the British Columbia Inland Lake and River
Service, for consideration by the executive officials of the company. Until they have been passed, no definite statement can be
made as to the exact construction of the boat. She will, however,
be built at the local shipyards.
Size of New Craft.
In size she will be 200 feet long and with a beam of 39 feet.
The present largest boat on Kootenay Lake is the Kushanook,
which has a length of 183 feet. The new boat will be fitted with
tandem compound condensing engines, which are expected to effect
a great economy in fuel, and she will have berth accommodations
for 160, with an accommodation for upward of 1,000 persons on
her three passenger decks.
Special Observations Cabins.
A feature of the new craft will be the special observation
cabins at the fore and aft. The latter will be specially reserved for
ladies, and both will be so constructed that an uninterrupted view
of the glorious passing scenery may be obtained.
The boat will have a speed of from 18 to 20 miles per hour,
and will be, altogether, the most modern stern-wheeler of the build
on this continent.
SPOKANE RED HOT WITH  ENTHUSIASM FOR B. C.
"Spokane capitalists are just red hot with enthusiasm for British Columbia mines and I expect to see a large influx of capital
from the Northwest States into the Slocan and Sheep Creek districts, especially during the coming spring and summer," said Mr.
A. J. Becker, manager of the Lucky Jim mine, who recently re-

turned to Nelson from the Inland Empire capital, where he went
for the purpose of concluding the deal for the Molly Hughes mine,
which has been purchased for a substantial cash consideration by
Spokane capitalists.
"It was Spokane capital," continued Mr. Becker, "which first
developed and drew attention to the Slocan country, and after the
slow times of recent years it will be Spokane capital that will again
attract the eyes of the world, to the great silver-lead and zinc regions of the district. In the early days a few capitalists from the
Inland Empire metropolis were the first to realize the enormous
; wealth that lies beneath the surface of the mountains of the Slocan,
jand then it was only a matter of a short time before capital from
the East, the extreme West and the Old Country began to flow in.
And I foresee a similar movement within three or four months
[now."
Big Development Planned.
Mr. Becker stated that the Molly Hughes was finally closed,
Ithat a company was being organized and that a force of from 25
J to 30 men would be at work on the property within the next three
I weeks. A compressor plant and hoist for sinking a 1,000-foot shaft
I will be erected immediately, and rapid development of the well-
I known Slocan lake dry silver property commenced.
The new shaft will be sunk from the present lowest tunnel,
Iwhich is right on the water's edge and from which the ore has been
J shipped directly aboard the barges for transportation to the Trail
Ismelter. This shaft will give a depth of 1,000 feet below the level
lof the lake. Mr. Becker will be manager of the new company, and
|will supervise all operations.
With regard to the Lucky Jim, Mr. Becker stated that the
Iprospects for a record output this summer were excellent.   The
■mine was, he said, in good shape for commencing shipments directly the C. P. R. had built the projected line in from Three Forks and
plans were all completed for the erection of the new mill.
Confident of K. & S. Operation.
Asked concerning the K. & S., Mr. Becker said: "While I am
lot in a position to make any detailed statement I may say that I
am perfectly confident that the Kaslo syndicate, which has an option on the system, will carry their plans to success, and that it
vill again be in operation."
ENORMOUS TONNAGE OF LEAD SMELTED.
That the sum distributed by the Dominion Government in
lead bounties during the fiscal year ending on March 31 will be in
pe neighborhood of a quarter of a million dollars, was a statement
Recently made by Mr. G. O. Buchanan, lead bounty supervisor.
Ir. Buchanan is hard at work, assisted by a staff of three stenographers, making out the returns for the year, and does not expect
lo have the work completed until the end of this week. The
jtmourtt of lead produced in the Kootenay district upon which the
pounty is paid, will total approximately 17,000 tons.
Last Month's Returns
Mr. Buchanan has received by express from the Trail smelter
lhe returns upon the lead smelted during March. The net weight
pf the ore was about 6,000 tons, while the lead contents wcre a
[rifle over 1,500 tons. The figures in detail, giving the mines shipping, and the ore smelted and the lead contents in pounds, is as

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1911
BIG ENTERPRISE—FRUIT & NURSERY CO. INCREASES
ITS CAPTIAL TO $200,000
j!
M
The largest and most important real estate transaction ever
consummated in the Boundary Country was closed last week. The
growth of the Grand Forks Fruit & Nursery company has reached
the stage where it has been deemed advisable to increase the capital stock from $25,000 to $200,000, the object being to increase its
holdings and extend its business.
The decision of the directors to take this step was ratified at a
recent meeting of the members of the company, and for some weeks
past negotiations for the acquisition of new properties have been
pending. On Friday last the papers were signed transferring J. D.
Honsberger's ranch and Mr. Honsberger's option on Martin Burrell's ranch to the company. These two ranches are the most highly developed fruit producers in the valley. Mr. Honsberger's orchard, whicli is the largest shipper in the valley, includes seven
. acres of prune trees from which a handsome revenue has been derived during the past seven or eight years. Mrs. Burrell's orchard
has long been pointed out as a model of perfection, owing to the
fact that Mr. Burrell is one of th'e leading authorities on horticultural matters in the Dominion. While the consideration for the
transfer of these properties has not been made public, it is known
that the Honsberger ranch has been valued at $70,000 for some
time, and the Burrell orchard and land has been held at $20,000.
It is therefore conjectured that the sale price was somewhere in the
neighborhood of these figures. Mr. Honsberger will retain his interest in the new orchard aiid nursery company.
The total acreage of the new company is 485, of whicii over
200 acres have already been transformed into bearing orchards, consisting of 15,000 trees. Within a year 125 acres more will be
planted to trees, thus making the Grand Forks Fruit & Nursery
company one of the largest, if not the largest, fruit growing enterprises in British Columbia, the possible exception as to size being
the well known Coldstream ranch in the Okanagan country.
The directorate of the new company is exceptionally strong,
being composed of Messrs. J. D. Honsberger, G. M. Hill, Jos.
Tweddle, H. W. Collins and A. B. Tweddle. Mr. Honsberger, who
becomes general manager of the company, has successfully con-,
ducted a 160-acre fruit ranch on the Covert estate for the past eight
years, and is regarded as one of the most capable and enterprising
horticulturists in the valley. A. B. Tweddle has been managing
director of the Grand Forks Fruit & Nursery company for the past
three years, and Mr. Collins is an experienced fruit grower, having
been the owner of an orchard on the Covert estate for a number of
years. Messrs. Hill and Jos. Tweddle are prominent fruit and nurserymen from Ontario.
The enlargment of the scope of this company, taken in conjunction with the definite plans which have been formulated for
irrigating the major portion of the land in this neighborhood,
should give a decided impetus to the fruit growing industry in the
valley, and a substantial increase in land values may be looked for
in the near future.
WASSERMANN BROS. ON C. P. R. LANDS
Wassermann Bros., the C. P. R. bulls, are sending out a circular on the property.  They estimate the land account as follows:
1. Present undivided surplus $43,000,000
2. Proceeds of sales in three Provinces  98,000,000
3. Proceeds of land in British Columbia, about.... 22,000,000
Total  * $163,000,000
"On these figures we do not think that it is over optimistic to
anticipate the potential values of the lands held by the Canadian
Pacific Company are equal to $180,000, or an equity of $100 per
share."
A BROKER ON THE CIRCULAR ISSUED BY C. P. R.
Commenting upon the C. P. R. circular published in Saturday's
Star, Hayden, Stone & Co. say:
"It might be estimated roughly, that the value of the extraneous assets is equal to about $100 per share for every share of
C. P. R. outstanding at present. This circular holds out no suggestion of the segregation of these assets other than to place them
in a sort of trust under which the income will be annually distributed among the beneficiaries—to wit, the shareholders.
"The Canadian Pacific is a very remarkable property, ancl on a
par with the best in this country, without doubt. At the present
moment, it seems to be in the way of a boom in its far northwest
territory, surpassing anything of the kind yet seen in that section,
and equal in intensity to anything of the kind ever witnessed in
this country. Nothing has so amazed the railroad world as the increases in the earnings of the C. P. R. during this current fiscal
year, and following a year of supposedly bad northwest Canadian
harvests. With a further large acreage planted this year ancl with
a better out-turn of the crops, the gross earnings of this property
may be expected to break all records, year after year, for the immediate future at least.
"There will naturally be some valuable rights on Canadian Pacific shares in the not distant future,"

AUTOMOBILE SPEEDING

ie person who voluntarily came to
ive evidence on my behalf, feeling
ie responsibility towards me and the
ause of justice.
j Hence, Sir, I claim the Police Magistrate has no grounds whatever for
psuming that I need to be cautioned
atainst speeding, because  I do not
insider that there is any owner or
ver of a motor in this city who rs
ire considerate of the public safety
in I have shown myself to be in the
it.
3ut just a word in reference to the
lice Court "mill."    It is a pretty
rd combination.    As  soon as in-
mation is laid by a policeman—
1 I have shown above how slim
1 unreliable that information is—
re seems to be a combination of
the officials to convict the accused,
spite   of   everything.   Everyone
Jems to assume that he is guilty, and
stone is left unturned to prove
Jin so.   The young man who acts
public prosecutor, both in his man-
:r and procedure, would suggest a
ndictiveness which should not pre-
lil.   The defendant is treated as a
lilty person, and very little reliance
placed   upon   his   evidence—the
|hole idea of the Court seeming to
, not that he is telling the truth,
giving a plain statement of fact,
it that he is evading a conviction of
hich he is presumed to bc deserv-
g; his sworn testimony to say the
ast of it is treated very lightly, and
lless he can get independent testi-
ony, whicii in nine cases out of ten
absolutely impossible, the evidence
the police is taken for gospel, and
!s is discounted.
On behalf of justice for all who
>me after me in such cases in the
olice Court, I feel that it is my
tty to draw the attention of the
ithorities through the press to the
listing state of things, which is
oth unfair and unjust.
I think any reasonable man will
realize that no business man who
knows himself guilty of such an offence, is going to incur the great
loss of time—which in these days
means money—in defending a case of
this kind, as it would be much
cheaper and a very much easier way
out of the difficulty, to pay the fine
and have done with it. But a man
cannot plead guilty to something of
which he knows he is innocent—even
for the sake of saving money.
Yours truly,
HERBERT CUTHBERT.

In many of the scenes almost the entire strength of the concerted organization is employed, resulting in a

full scope, and playgoers are assured

be great artists who approach perfection in technique and interpretation and whose performance is magnificent in finish and grandeur and

(By Onlooker)
Everybody writes about women and
women's skirts, both hobble and harem. It is noticeable in every paper
and magazine one may happen to
glance through, and the outcry seems
to be particularly vehement against
the harem skirt. It is claimed that
the harem skirt is hideous and inartistic, but this may be because we
are not yet accustomed to it. A voluminous skirt flapping in the wind
and severely hampering a woman's
gait is anything but artistic, and a
skirt made somewhat after the fashion
of the garment hitherto monopolized
by selfish man is, after all, based on
comfort and common sense. Men are
loth to find both their clothes and
habits completely emulated by the
fair sex, and doubtless they fear that
even that one very special perogative,
namely, putting the hands in the trouser pockets, will soon no longer be
left to them.

The Hunt Club held a very successful gymkahna last week. Society
was out in full force, and the ladies
agreed that the jumps were really
just too twee, and everybody had a
perfectly "diffy" afternoon.
* *   *
If the art of criticism can be cultivated Victoria ought to be unusually
proficient. It seems to some people,
however, that we shall not be in possession of all the facts until after the
official investigation into the loss of
the Iroquois has taken place.    Half-
drowned people in the terrior of what
must have been an awful experience,
can scarcely tell all there is to know.
Whatever the circumstances, the sympathy of all is with both the survivors who, after an experience full of
horror, mourn the loss of friends and
relatives, and with all those who have
suffered bereavement through the untimely fate of the Iroquois.
In Maine
Speaking of the determination of
the people of Maine to repeal their
Prohibition law at the earliest opportunity, the "Lawrence, (Mass.), Tribune" remarks: "No law enacted in
any state in the Union has ever proven such a farce as has the prohibition
in the State of Maine. The constitutional amendment prohibiting the
manufacture or sale of alcoholic stimulants was a sop thrown to the real
temperance people of the state when
they had grown weary of the loose
and hypocritical manner in which the
statute law was enforced. It did not
dawn upon the people who wanted
the law honestly enforced or repealed,
that as a constitutional law it was
feeble and inoperative, as there could
be no penalty attached to its violation. In the city of Bangor, with less
than 25,000 population, over one hundred saloons were running wide open
year after year. High sheriffs of the
various counties were always notified
to "ease up" prior to elections, thus
making the law a shuttle-cock between the rumsellers and the Republican party."
Sudden Demise
On Tuesday last the death occurred
at St. Joseph's Hospital of Reginald
Jaegers, who was well known in Victoria and Vancouver. Mr. Jaegers
first came to Victoria from Liverpool
six years ago, and was occupied in
business in this city for about two
years, after which he went to New
York, whence he is believed to havc
travelled to Australia, returning to
this Province by way of Mexico. For
the past year Mr. Jaegers has been
extensively interested in timber lands,
having cruised many districts in the
Interior. On Friday he entered the
St. Joseph's Hospital suffering from
the effects of a fall whilst rinking, and
immediately developed acute erysipelas, from which he succumbed five:
days afterwards. With the exception
of Mr. Thornton Fell of this city, who
was distantly connected by marriage,
deceased had no relatives in the Province. He was a man of reserved
manners and habits, strictly honourable and reliable in business matters,
and greatly respected by all who
knew him. He leaves a mother, sister and two brothers to mourn his
loss in Liverpool. The funeral took
place on Wednesday from the B. G
Undertaking Parlours.

I the corset to the waist line,
the upper part of the figure
fe much lower in the corset
than formerly, the hips at the same
time being kept as slender as possible.
This lowered bust, together with a
slender hip measurement, is not compatible with a small waist. Flesh
must go somewhere. It cannot be
squeezed out of the way altogether,
and consequently the waist is much
larger in the new models, No sensible woman nowadays chooses her
corset in the old hit-or-miss fashion
of going to the corset department and
taking whatever the saleswoman recommends or what some friend has
worn ' with successful results. The
best of the new models have very few
bones, and these are set in exactly
the right locations in foundations of
cotitil or brocaded stuffs, that are supple yet firm. Silk tricot corsets, as
soft as the fabric used for silk gloves,
are shown among novelties, and these
dainty affairs are trimmed with Chan-
tilly lace.   There are all sorts of re
ducing devices, chief among which is
the silk-ribbed elastic addition which
fits over the end of the corset and
comes far down o nthe thighs, giving
a beautiful line over the hips and preventing the heavy look below the corset with which some women are afflicted. When rightly adjusted the
corset should be firm and tight around
the hips and abdomen, but the figure
above the waist should be able to
sway and bend with utmost flexibility.
To produce this very desirable effect
the corset is first put on very loosely
with the laces pulled fa,r out. These
laces, by the way, are in three sections; one extending four or five eyelets down from the top; another the
same distance from the bottom, and
the third and most important lacing
in the space between the waist line.

The girl who wants blouses that
will wash and not need repairing
every time she puts them on will find
the cotton marquisette just the fabric
for which she is looking. She can
make it into a peasant waist if she
likes the ease and simplicity of this
pattern—and provided she knows how
to cut these square sleeves so that
she can lift her arm—or she can adopt
the conventional pattern with its arm-
hole and shoulder seam. A few tucks
at the shoulder in the front give fulness over the bust, or the flat quarter-
inch plaits from shoulder to waist
give flatness. She chooses whichever
style suits her figure best. The fastening is down the front—for which
the designers be praised—and the buttons are of silk, cloth, or enameled
studs. There is a movement on the
part of some women to use the flat
pique stud such as men wear in their
shirts. The edges of • the front,
whether it is arranged in a box plait
or not, are hemstitched, then finished
with the plaited frill, which, has come
back into favor. This frill is made of
net, in that coarse variety which we
call Russian, or it is of the marquisette itself, finished with a half-inch
hemstitched hem. There is no doubt
that the fashion for hemstitching
which was so strongly brought out in
all the gowns of last Winter will be
continued this Spring, especially in
thin white blouses. One model of
cotton voile that shows a good deal
of it has a hemstitched boxplait down
the middle of the back and front,
there is a wide sailor collar, square
in front, that is also hemstitched, and
the sleeves are finished in the same
way. At the same time that hemstitching came into fashion last Autumn also came the colored sa*'
collars. These were of chiffon cloth,
but in various shapes and attached
to blouses and one-piece gowns.
They will make their appearance at
once on white blouses for everyday
wear, and the idea is a most attractive one.

THE WORLD'S PEACE
"I do not see why questions of honour
should not be submitted to tribunals composed of men of honour who understand
questions of national honour, to abide by
their decision, as well as in other questions
of difference arising between nations."—
President Taft.
The movement in the direction of International arbitration and peace advances,
both in its elemental and ethical aspects,
by leaps and bounds, while in its political
features the past few weeks have afforded
ample demonstration that the fruit of this
movement is at last beginning to ripen.
Many factors have been at work in the
education of International thought during
the last half century. The great peace
movement which was raised to a dignity
of fine idealism by the addreses of John
Bright in the House of Commons, and
advocated with justifiable reserve by
Gladstone, went forward in spite of almost disastrous defeats in Africa and the
Far East. The greatest sinners have been
the countries that have spoken loudest in
favour of the arbitrament of reason, including the United States, the striking utterance of whose President is responsible
for the great impetus which the cause has
recently received. Then came King Edward with an olive branch for his sceptre,
a statesman-King who kept the Throne
free from all party taint and made it at
the same time a fulcrum for turning the
thoughts of the nations toward the conquests that may be won by the weapons of
respect, conciliation, conference, and mutual intercourse. The Hague Tribunal
registered the progress of this spirit in the
councils of Europe and America, and the
settlement of the long-standing disputes
between Great Britain and Canada, on the
one hand, and America, on the other, has
prepared the way for the deliverances of
Sir Edward Grey, Mr. Arthur Balfour,
and leaders of civil and Church opinion
on both sides of the Atlantic. We are
moving on. Armaments increase, controversy upon International difficulties is carried on in a national and parochial spirit,
and no nation in Europe has so far shown
its hand as to warrant a neutral Power
intervening to promote something nobler
and far-reaching than an agreement between two English-speaking nations.
Nevertheless, the transcendental power of
peace as a tributary of national prosperity
is being recognised, while the mere weight
of armaments compel the Cabinets of the
world to doubt whether war even to the
victor would be a gain. The Flag of Peace
and Goodwill is, for the hour, in the ascendancy, and all patriots will pray that
the statements of present-day leaders in
America and England will be followed up
by an immediate conference for the purpose of giving effect to the proposal made
by President Taft, and so eloquently endorsed by the Secretary for Foreign Affairs. For what is the position. Between
America and England there is only one
form of rivalry, and that is purely commercial. We have no quarrel with the
American policy in the Philippines, the
Cuban problem has been apparently settled, we have recognised that the Panama
waterway will be protected by the States
for the navigation of ships belonging to
all nations, and we dare to add that if the
Eeciprocity Agreement is finally endorsed
by Canada and America it is impossible
to imagine that any difference is likely to
arise between Great Britain and America
that could not be amicably and honourably
adjusted by such a tribunal as is proposed
by President Taft. The signs of the times
are for peace. Behind the proposal tliere
is evidently for the first time in many
years a sentiment that is as enthusiastic in
the United States as it is united here.
There are those who discount the value
of paper agreements when it comes to International affairs. When a nation feels
that its honour is infringed, or that some
stealthy manoeuvre has been resorted to by
one of the contracting Powers, with the
object of securing some selfish advantage,
then the people forget and denounce the
agreement and act as if it had never been
conceived. Others point to what seems an
inconsistency on  the  part of America.
While desiring to establish a workmanlike
organization for the settlement of differences with England, she is swarming the
borders of a friendly State with her soldiers. Then, while Great Britain responds
in commendable language through the
mouth of its Foreign Minister, she, too, is
discussing increased Navy Estimates. But
these criticisms are superficial. It will be
time enough to offer objections to measures
of this kind when this peace policy has
been translated into the clauses of a protocol. What we have to note is the sincerity of all the projectors of the latest attempt to cement the relationships of two
nations possessing so much in common in
the bonds of an enduring peace. When
a statesman of the analytical cast of mind
of Mr. Balfour declares, 'I do not see any
particular difficulty in carrying out as between particular nations President Taft's
suggestions," we may at least conclude that
the moment is opportune for taking another step. As with the British Parliament, so it is likely to be with the
Churches. They will speak with the voice
of one man upon the wisdom and Tightness
of the proposal. The Bishop of Southward connotes the speech of Mr. Balfour.
Canon Henson expects, if the agreement is
put into formal language, "a great advance
in the ethics of International intercourse."
leading Nonconformist ministers, speaking in their own name and in behalf of
the Free Church Council, have appealed
to their brethren in the United States to
see that the tide of peace that has carried
already so many publicists will sweep all
classes on to a happy consummation of
the ideal. It is the opportunity of the two
greatest Christian and civilized countries
in the world for setting the pace to a higher and nobler policy among nations that
are not based upon the same constitutional
unity as are England and America. It is
contrary to the letter and spirit of the
British attitude that the proposal should
be amplified with one in favour of a defensive alliance, and it is satisfactory to learn
that the principle of International arbitration is to be the basis of this bold and humane and wise master-stroke of constructive statesmanship.
BUSY AT OTTAWA -
Mr. G. II. Barnard figures in the Hansard of last week in connection with a matter of importance to his constituents, the
construction of a light-house and buoy
steamer for the Pacific Coast at a cost of
$200,000. The dimensions are—length
200 feet; beam 43 feet; draught 12 feet;
speed 12 knots. The steamer is to be constructed of steel. Mr. Barnard asked the
Minister if it would not have been more
advantageous to have used the Kestrel for
this purpose and to have built a proper
Fisheries Protection cruiser. He could
have built a cruiser for the same amount
of money and thus have provided a Fisheries Protection Service. Mr. Barnard
went on to urge the necessity for at once
providing permanently for better fisheries
protection on the Pacific Coast; he pointed
out that the fishery poachers were again
operating, apparently without very much
attempt on the part of the Department to
stop them. The Kestrel has heen within
hailing distance of these poaching schooners but was too slow to catch them, and
they were not interfered with. American
poachers have built a fast schooner to engage in this trade knowing that
she can out-foot the Kestrel or any similar
cruiser. Last year a tug-boat was chartered by the Department for fisheries protection at a cost of $21,645.00, but this is
an extravagant and ineffective method, and
the only way in which poaching can be
stopped is by a regular control. Mr. Barnard wound up some very pertinent remarks by charging that the Minister and
his Department had so far neglected to
stop this poaching that they have brought
the Administration into contempt and not
only into the contempt of the business
people of the Province but into the contempt even of the Indians who are not
supposed to know very much about it.
MR. PERCIVAL'S LETTER
No more admirable contribution to the
discussion on the loss of the Iroquois has
been made than rhe letter ri r*-i".\ Spencer
Percival printed in the Colonist of Wednesday. It is doubtful if the practical
suggestions lie makes for the j rotection of
human life can be improved upon anil it
is almost certain that they will be endorsed
by any tribunal which is called upon to
investigate. The Week has pleasure in reproducing them.
1. The inspection of boats should prevent those being used which are not only
unseaworthy, but also those which in any
degree approach the danger line in regard
to being top-heavy. Competent ship building engineers should know what proportion the upper works should have to the
length and beam and for safety the estimate should be on the conservative side.
2. When a boat is licensed to carry
passengers and freight it should be stipulated where the latter is to be placed and
the amount.
If deck cargoes are to be allowed, the
certificate should say so, and state the
quantity, and the certificate should be
placed where the passengers can see it; so
that they may know if the owners are exceeding their powers.
3. Prevention of owners and part owners acting as captains of the vessels which
carry passengers to eliminate risk of profit
taking precedence of safety of those who
trust tlieir lives to the captain.
FEDERAL POLITICS
The Victoria Times, as the Colonist has
pointed out, has boxed the compass on the
subject of the Order in Council amending
the Land Laws, but it has achieved the
same feat in dealing with the present condition of Federal politics and the leader-,
ship of the Conservative party. It is rather
amusing to notice the pertinacity with
whicli Liberal papers generally stick to
tlieir laudation of Mr. K. L. Borden. A
few days ago the Times quoted a very
eulogistic article from the Toronto Globe,
as if the Toronto Globe would do anything
but eulogize Mr. Borden. At present it is
the most essential feature, of the game to
praise the man who is leader of the Opposition, in order if possible to make him
stiffen his back and stand pat. Equally assiduous are the efforts of the Liberal press
to convince the public that Mr. Sifton may
become a Conservative leader. Three
times a day the Liberal quidnuncs are
handing him over to the Conservatives.
They are not only willing to make a present of him, but even to offer a bonus with
him. By and by they will learn that the
Conservative party does not want, and
would not accept Mr. Sifton at any price.
He would be far better placed as Chief
Commissioner in London, or even as
Special Ambassador to the Orient.
AN EXCELLENT APPOINTMENT
The Appointment of Mr. W. W. Foster
of Eevelstoke to the important office of
Deputy Minister of Works is easily one
of the most excellent selections which the
Government has yet made. When Mr.
Foster was selected for the position of
President of tlie Provincial Conservative
Association, The Week took occasion to
say some nice things about him Avhich wero
not at all too flattering. Mr. Foster is one
of the brightest, most honourable and most
competent young men of the Province.
There are too few men of his type in the
Public Service. He will distinctly raise
the tone of the Service, ancl is bound to
make his mark in a position which calls
for exceptional ability and industry. But
it must not be supposed that Mr. Foster's
talents will be buried in a Deputy Com-
missionership for long. He is destined for
high office, and those who know him confidently predict that while he will be of
invaluable service to Mr. Taylor, his respected Chief and to the Government, it
will be found that his talents qualify him
for a position of greater distinction and
usefulness.
