ing from a painful and deadly disease

perhaps it is natural—it is certainly in !
accordance with universal experience—
that there should always be men ready
to take advantage of their unreasoning
fears and turn their sufferings to money
account by pretending to hold a secret
remedy. There may be a few fanatics
who believe in the nostrum- they offer,
but most of the men who thus trade on
the suffering of their fellow creatures
are perfectly certain that their secret is
an imposture. Such men arc mischievous and pestilent quacks.
If anyone possessed a cure for cancer
which would stand the test of a fair
trial, he would, by revealing it and placing it at the service of suffering humanity, not only earn the gratitude of
mankind, but malic a gigantic fortune.
If a man, believing that he has such a
remedy, keeps it secret in order to gain
money, he is like a man ,who sees another drowning and refuses to throw
him a rope unless he is paid for it; or
in a burning house and insists on making a bargain before he will place a
ladder for his escape.
Let your solicitor call for a return for
the cases treated, and you have nothing
to fear from fhe threatened action.

Canada knows that these statements
are absolutely false; and with reference to the population, instead of
2,000 as alleged, Port Simpson boasts,
today, of iioO Indians, and 50 white
people. In order to arouse American
interest the prospectus goes on to
state that Harriman and Hill threaten
to build to intercept the G. T. P. at
Port Simpson, which is about as probable as that Harriman and Hill will
build to intercept Peary at the North
Pole. The bulk of the prospectus is
devoted to a comparison of the lands

It did not, however, announce the ap-

order to import some semblance of

all shades of opinion should unite in
the endeavor to obtain redress for the
financial grievances which have so unfairly burdened the province. This
much was demanded by loyalty and
the public interest, and we doubt not
was sincerely intended by the rank
and file of the Liberal party, who
proposed to bury the political hatchet
in the public interest.   It is a matter
the Colonist. With the departure of
Mr. Gosnell ,the last link which bound
the Colonist to its Conservative traditions is broken, and the political policy of the paper is committed to the
keeping of the traditional foes of the
party. The vagaries of the new management with their frequent changes
of staff and contradictory announcements have destroyed any confidence
that mav have been felt in the official

for a considerable time, and was confirmed during his recent visit to tho
Coast by Mr. Charles Hays, general

I   The Drama.
The Hi Henry Minstrels were a great
success at the Victoria on Monday
night. The first part was remarkable
for tlie artistic setting, which pictured
the palace of an Oriental rajah, with
the orchestra seated high above on an
elevated platform. The jokes were
good, the songs excellent and the dancing of the Marionettes was all that could
be' desired. Perhaps the most picturesque feature of the whole performance
was the closing scene, entitled Dixie
.Land, where, amid rippling waves and
moving clouds, the company took part
in fhe dances and serenades.
Dover, Calais, Brussels, Cologne,
Frankfurt and Nur,emburg and then to
Baireuth, Queen Victoria travelled without being recognized. When there the
royal guest was ushered into one of the
many quaint private loges in the rear
of the Festival Theatre, and, from that
point of vantage, witnessed the whole
of the beautiful spectacle of "Parsifal."
A pathetic and lovely autograph letter
received by Wagner from the queen,
after her return to England, was a treasured souvenir of the royal visit, always
esteemed by the master during his life,
and now equally so by his widow.
The Grand has quite a strong company
this week. The Nugent Co. put up a
remarkably clever and well-enacted
comedy sketch; in fact, this is probably
the best that has visited.Victoria during
the past year. It is hard to keep a
straight face over the antics of the Diamond Comedy Four, it is still harder
to fail to appreciate their singing.
Opinions differ as regards the introduction of children onto the stage, it is apt
to make them rather impossible when
off it. However, that may be, there is
no doubt but that the Elliott boy shows
real talent, and should be laying the
foundation of a great career in vaudeville. The pictures are above the average and should please all classes, as the
first lot are instructive and the second
intcnsly humorous.

Tom
Loop,
Of all the pictures drawn by Charles
Dana Gibson, none were more popular
than the series of "The Education of
Mr. Pipp," and> the types that appeared
ir. black and white with such amusing
effectiveness are now all fhe more welcome when given with flesn and blood
people upon tlie stage in the very delightful comedy which Augustus Thomas written with the same title, which
will be seen for the first time in this
city at the Victoria Theatre next Wednesday night. The play has run over
150 nights in New York and enjoyed an
equal degree of success in Chicago, Boston and other large cities last year. It
is now in its third season.
Poor henpecked .Mr. Pipp, the tyrannical, socially ambitious, utterly impossible mother, the two pretty Gibson-
esque daughters, their lovers at home
and abroad—all these have been taken
from the portfolio and been transferred
to the stage with great effectiveness.
The central figure is Mr. Pipp, and in
this character Digbcy Bell again shows
what a clever player he is and how easily he has stepped from the comic opera
field to that of straight comedy. He
has made a careful study of henpecked
Americanism, and his looks, gestures—
in fact, everything connected with his
appearance, is exactly after thc ideals
set forth by Gibson and his pencil.
The Viotoria Musical Society.
The society is composed of active
(or performing) members and associate
(or subscribing) members and is governed by 'a committee composed of active and associate members.
The objects of the society are twofold, namely;
(a) The engagement of eminent artists.
(b) The encouragement of choral
music.
The society is working with the music
lovers of Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, etc.
It is only by sucli co-operation that it
is possible to bring eminent artists to
the coast, the distance being too great
to enable any one city to bear the entire cost.
Sir Villiers Stanford's "Revenge" and
Sir Hubert Parry's new work "The Pied
Piper of Hamelin" will be performed by
the chorus (100 voices) during the-season.
The success of the Albani, Watkin
Mills and Gerardy concerts last year
•was very gratifying and encouraging to
the committee and they submit this
prospectus to the musical public in full
confidence of support.
Three thousand dollars are required
to carry out this season's programme,
to which you are cordially invited to
subscribe.

Her Advice.
Perhaps the greatest compliment ever
paid to an author, and at the same time,
the sincerest tribute ever bestowed upon a work of genius, was given by the
laic Queen Victoria, when that august
lady travelled all the way from Windsor
Castle in England to the little town of
Baireuth, Bavaria, to witness Wagner's
grand spectacle of "Parsifal."
It had long been the custom of England's royalty to issue a "command"
for such performances as they wished
lo see, when those receiving the "command" were only too pleased to "obey"
and appear at Windsor for thc pleasure
of those "commanding." There was always ample reward given in return—
but it was the "honor" that was coveted.
Wagner had ordained that during his
life, "Parsifal" should not be seen outside of the opera house which had been
erected, specially constructed, for that
purpose in Baireuth. When in London
on one of his concert tours, Wagner
had appeared at Windsor. The queen
had personally met the great genius.
Since the death of Prince Consort,
Queen Victoria had never set foot
within the walls of a theatre, but could
not resist the desire to witness so beautiful a spectacle as "Parsifal." She
travelled "incognito." None, outside of
her own immediate attendants, knew of
thc intended journey. None knew of it
in Baireuth but  Wagner.   To Dover,
He—There is a certain young lady
deeply interested in me, and while I
like her, you know, still I never could
love her. I want to put an end to it
without breaking the poor girl's heart.
Can you suggest any plan?
She—Do you have to call there often?
"No, indeed; not oftener than I can
possibly help."—
"Call oftener."
Park Lane Associations.
\ lady carrying a little dog in a
London omnibus wanted to know at
every turning whether this was Park
Lane.
She began asking the question soon
after the 'bus started and repeated it at
intervals all along the route until at last
she was told, to the intense relief of
everybody in the omnibus, that Park
Lane was really before her eyes.
But they were not to see the last of
her even then. "Look!" she said in ecstatic tones, holding the dog up to the
window, "that's where your mother was
bom."—Ladies' Home Journal.

At The Street   ^
Corner        jj
By THE LOUNQER «•
'The Romans, we are told, called a
trove "lucus" because there was no light
it.   Hence the proverb "Lucus a non
jtcendo."   Possibly it is in accordance
vith this  ancient precedent   that the
lames' Bay  Causeway is   said  to  be
lighted  at night,  because  it is hardly
ossible to find one's way across when
he electric lights are burning.   It is a
natter for  curious  comment that  al-
|iough when all Victoria, and Govern-
(lent Street in particular, was so brilliantly lighted during the visit of His
pxcellency, thereby proving that there is
nple power  to produce good  lamps,
low, when there is no need for celebra-
Eon and the extra lights have been cut
off, we have to wander through semi-
|loom, and vainly endeavor to read or
vrite with lamps which a fortnight ago
vere stars of brilliancy.     Of   course
[there is a reason, if only we knew it;
(there is a reason for everything, the
only difference being that some reasons
|are good, and others bad.    However,
ve are in the hands of the B. C. Elec-
Jtric Light Co., where we Jose on the
lone side we gain  on the other.   The
ICompany has a right to be proud of
pts excellent service of cars and of its
gas equipments, but, just because little
iTommy knows his French and English
•lessons, it is no excuse for his falling
|down over his spelling.
The mention of cars of course brings
Ime right on to the Exhibition. I see
I that someone has written condemning
Ithe broncho busting as an offence and
an outrage; that' it is a case for the
{Society of Prevention of Cruelty to
[Animals; that it is demoralizing to the
lonlookers. I have also heard this in-
Idictment upheld by men whom I should
•have thought the very last to speak in
I such a strain. I do not suppose that
leven one out of the many thousands who
I witnessed the "busting" felt one atom
I demoralised. The writer contended
[that as bronchos must be "bust" they
[should be so treated in private. I can
[not see if in that light. I look on the
[matter in the same way as I do in the
lease of a house on fire. If the house
|has to burn I like to be there to watch it
as a spectacle. It does not make thc
[house burn any the faster if there are
[onlookers, so long as they keep out of
lthe way of the firemen. And there is
[another point, which I think should go
[for something.I Although I know little
I about horse-breaking, I should imagine
Pthat a horse broken in front of a large
kand noisy throng is much more effectually broken than one thus dealt with
[in solitude. Human nature is curious
I in its inconsistencies. In the Roman
[days it was a common practice to set an
I armed gladiator to fight with a tiger, or
I some other wild beast, in the arena.
I Pious people will bewail the barbarism
lof the times which could so endanger
I human life, but I have never heard any
1 one express any sympathy for the animal, which in just as many instances
was killed, as was the man. I have
always appreciated the celebrated remark of the child in Punch. It is an old .
I yarn, but I make no excuse for repeat- j
King it, as it comes in appositely. Two
fsmall children had been taken to the
[Dore Gallery, and amongst other pic-
[tures they saw the masterpiece depict-
jing the Colliseum by night, with the
[martyrs lying dead and the lions raven-
[ing over their bodies. They gazed with
I interest at this fascinating picture, when
[one child said: "Oh, Mummy, look;
I there's one poor lion hasn't got a Chri-
[tian."
I saw in a paper the other day that
[the King while abroad 'had saved the
[life of a small girl, whose bicycle was
[running away with her down hill. With
texeat presence  of mind  His  Majesty
Ithrust   his   walking  stick through  the
Spokes  of  the  machine,  thereby  stop-
Iping it. and was successful in catching
[the child    before    she    reached    the j
[ground.   A very pretty little yarn; but j
Iwe are not told whether tbe stick was |
fbroken.    It has  occurred to me' that
{there is an opening here for some enterprising stick manufacturer to make  a
I large fortune by introducing and patent
ing a special stick for such purposes.
After all tlle ordinary walking stick is
not much good, save either as an ornament to the young, or a support to the
old and infirm. It might just as well
fulfil a useful sphere in life. Moreover, a particular brand might be put
on the market for the special purpose of
stopping runaway automobiles, and if
this kind proved a success a third grade
could be supplied for the extra special
purpose of stopping runaway street cars.
Think of the saving of life which
might be effected by such means, and if
an old man, as our respected monarch
undoubtedly is, can accomplish this feat,
surely the many million of hale and
hearty males scattered around the universe could do the same. If only I
could see how exactly it was done, I
would make a specialty myself of trying to win the Carnegie Medal by stopping wheels.
I would respectfully beg to call the
attention of both householders and councillors to the extreme difficulty which
at presenut is met with by anyone not
well acquainted with the city, to find
his, or her way to any given housce.
Many of the streets have no board set
up with the name on; very many, in fact
most, of the houses have no number.
This latter deficiency is, I believe, thc
fault of the landlords; the former is the
fault of the City Council. Many of the
streets which have their name placards
up are in little better state than those
which have not, as wind and weather
have almost obliterated the inscriptions. It is a small matter in one way
to the citizens, because Victoria is so
small a place that anyone who has been
her a couple of years needs no directing sign, but to the traveller it constitutes a grave nuisance.

Numerous readers of The Week have
been so kind as to express their appreciation of my remarks on books and
reading and to ask for more. It is very
easy to- comply with this request, because, as a matter of fact, it happens
to be my private hobby, and in order
that I may indulge in it this week, the
Lounger has been instructed to write
two columns of piffle, which is enough
for one issue, without any of the usual
badinage from Bohemian. I am going
to talk about a book which, I will venture to say, has not been read by six
people in Victoria, nor by sixty people
west of Ottawa, and yet it is tbe best
of the kind tliat has been published in
twenty-five years and is distinguished
by a lightness of touch, gracefulness of
action and a dainty humourousness
whicli has not been surpassed even by
the prince of philosophical jesters, who
immortalized himself by writing the
Dolly Dialogues. The book is "The
Quest of the Golden Girl," and the author Richard le Gallienne. I first heard
of. it from a dear friend in Ottawa, who
was one of the best judges of books I
ever met. He simply asked me if I
had read it. I had to say no. He insisted upon taking me up to his house
to get it. The book was a revelation
in the treatment of a threadbare theme,
for it was fresh, sparkling, tender and
serious in tones, with a vein of rpl
sentiment running through it and an under-current of true humour in forming
it. I think it is best characterized in the
words which I pencilled on the title page
after reading it, seven years ago, "A
piece of delicious fooling," but from any
suggestion that it is nothing more, it is
amply redeemed by the concluding chapters, which are not merely exquisite
specimens of the literary art, but are
suffused with pure sentiment and profound thought. The title of the book is
suggestive of sentiment, and possibly it
may be, as a whole, too sentimental for
thc average reader. If .therefore, you
are so prosaic as to eschew sentiment,
by all means give "The Quest of the
Golden Girl" a wide berth. Of plot
there is very little, simply a string of
incidents, relating the experiences of the
hero in his endeavor tn find the Golden
Girl. By a strange irony of falc lie
found her, not among the beautiful or
the attractive, upon whom he had lavished his attention, and the pathos of
their union has only been excelled by
some of the finest passages in J. M.
Carrie's works.
I should like to say something about
thc author. I knew him in Liverpool
when he was a lanky, long-haired boy
of seventeen, always untidy and always
in trouble with his teachers. He was
pronounced a duffer in class, but even
then could write sonnets and ballads
which purchased a ready pardon for his
venial offenses. Later lie took to journalism and wrole a novel which ran into
five editions, and of which more will
yet be heard, entitled "Thc Romancy of
Zion Chapel." He has published one
volume of original poems, and a translation of thc "Rubaiyat,' in which, however, he took considerable liberty with
the text, and truth to tell gave the public more Gallienne than Omar Khayyam.
Making a close study of English literature, he wrote a eulogy on Robert
Louis   Stevenson,   an   appreciation   of
George Meredith, and a criticism of
Rudyard Kipling. Then he took to the
lecture platform, but was only a qualified succes, having been preceeded by
Elbert Hubbard, who has a better
knowledge of the art of advertising.
One of his most important commissions
was to write for the Cosmopolitan a
series of articles on "The Great Loves
of History," a work for which he is
pre-eminently qualified. But after starting out with the immortal Dante and
Beatrice, and sketching two others
which I cannot now recall, the series
came to an end without any explanation. Little has been heard of him recently, and I fear he must be classed
with those brilliant geniuses who have
just missed success. That he is brilliant no sound judge of literature will
deny, and I cannot do better than fill
the balance of my space with a few brief
quotations from the book under consideration :
"This is sadly true, that we always
find the Golden Girl our first love and
lose her in the second.
'A quality which nowadays we are
taridly recognizing as the first and last
of all beauty, either of nature or art;
the supreme, truly divine, because materialistically unaccountable, quality of
charm."
"The perfection of the perfect woman
is nothing more nor less than fyer
unique, individual, charming imperfection, and that she is simply the woman
we love and who is fool enough to love
us."
"Those faces that consist mainly of
spiritual effect and physical bloom, that
change with everything they look upon,
i the light in which ebbs and flows with
every changing tide of the soul,—those
you have to love to know, and to worship to pourtray."
'If two are agreed, say, in admiring
Meredith, Hardy, Omar Khayyam and
Maeterlinck, to take four particularly
test authors,—there is nothing to prevent you marrying at once."
"The heart does not more love the
heart that loves it than the brain loves
the brain that comprehends it."
"So soon as the two sexes wear the
same clothes they may as well wear
nothing; the game of sex is up." -
"Though all the world has heard the
song of the nightingale to the rose, only
the nightingale has heard the answer of
the rose."
"Love is better an unmarried than
a married regret."
"It is an eternal truth of masculine
sentiment that man always longs for
the absent woman."
"Theories are for the unknown and
the unhappy. Who will trouble to theorize about Heaven when he has found
Heaven itself?"
"Strange in truth are the ministrations to which beauty is called. Out of
the high heaven she is summoned, from
mystic communion with her own perfection, from majestic labours in the sis-
tine chapel of the stars—yea, she must
put aside her gold-leaf and purples and
leave unfinished the very panels of the
throne of God,—that Circe may have
her palace, and her worshippers their
gilded sty."
"But, however good their theories,
women by nature cannot help confusing
body and soul, and what to a man is a
mcr fancy of the senses to theni is a
spiritual tragedy."
"An actress I Great heavens! An ac-
Iress is the first step to a knowledge of
life. Besides, actresses off the stage
are either brainless or soulful, and the
choice of evils is a delicate one."
"France is the brain of the world, as
England is its heart, and Russia its
list."
"Bohemians are seldom Bohemian for
anyone save themselves. They are terrible sticklers for convention and even
etiquette in other people."

British Columbia
THE FRUIT GROWING RESOURCES
OF THE PROVINCE.
Fruit Growing.
British Colombia fruit is preferred
above all others in the markets of
the Middle West, where it commands
profitable prices. In 1901 a small
exhibit sent to England was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Horticultural Society, and last year
(1905) a car lot, exhibited in London, won the first prize from all competitors, while no less than eight
medals were awarded the individual
exhibits which made up the collection. This goes to prove that despite
the great distance British Columbia
fruit has second a prominent place
in the British market, in which Oregon and California applies have heretofore sold at the highest prices.
The fruit industry of British Colombia is in its infancy, bot the results so far secred are convincing as
to its future importance. The actual
exiwt.otfruit «rowin« land has not
' yet been 'ascertained, but by a. conservative estimate at least one million acres south of the 52nd degree
will produce all the fruits of the temperate zone. The recognized fruit
districts include the southern part
of Vancouver Island- and the Gulf
Islands, Lower Fraser River Valley,
. Thompson River Valley, Shuswap
Lake, Okanagan, Spallumcheen, Oso-
yoqs, Similkameen, Upper, Columbia
Valley, Kootenay Lake, Arrow Lake,
Lower Colombia River and Grand
Forks, which are all suited to the
best grades of fruit, and which contain extensive areas of frait lands.
Other good fruit districts are: West
Coast of Vancouver Island, West
Coast of Mainland (where patches of
fruit lands are* found at the heads of
the numerous inlets), Lower Fraser
Valley, Nicola, Grand Prairie, and
many other localities. In some of
these sections irrigation is necessary,
and, as mentioned elsewhere, water is
being supplied where the influx of
population warrants the necessary
expenditure. Many localities, which
are now proved to be suitable for
fruit culture, were but recently "discovered," for a few years ago fruit
was only raised in the settlements
along the coast and along the rivers,
and in quantity that failed to supply
even the limited local demand. In
1891 the total orchard area of the
province was 6,500 acres. In ten
years it only increased 1,000 acres,
but from 1901 to 1905 it jumped to
22,000 acres, and it is safe to say
that that acreage will be more than
donbled again before lthe close of
1906. Ten years ago British Colombia did not produce enough fruit to
supply her own population. The following table of fruit shipments is
interesting in showing the steady
growth of the industry:

On The Trail
By the Traveller.
With a production of a million tons
of copper-gold ore in sight for the present year and a credit of $1,386,854 disbursed among lucky shareholders of
stocks in two of its leading mining corporations, and hundreds of thousands of
capital ready for the further exploitation and development of its, mineral resources.,  the  "Boundless, Boundary" is
indeed coming into its ow:l aft«t *. decade of waiting. The Granby Consolidated has paid out $1,348,630, and the
Providence $38,224 to its shareholders.
The former is the pioneer corporation
of the district, and since Jay P. Graves
interested S. H. C. Miner of Montreal
in its development—who gave the original company its first financial lift—it
has gone steadily forward in opening up
the immense copper-gold areas at Phoenix, shipping same to its reduction
works at Grand Forks and producing a
profit that places it in the ranks of the
permanent dividend payers. The Providence Mining Company owns a rich
Silver mine in the Greenwood Camp,
arid last month returned to the stockholders a seventh dividend on a basis of
50 cents per share, bringing the total
up to $38,224. When the British Columbia Copper Company, owing the Mother
Lode mine in Deadwood camp and having under working bonds other properties scattered throughout the district
and now expending thousands in the remodelling of its reduction plant at
Greenwood and the Dominion Copper
Company owning a smelter at Boundary
Falls and the Brooklyn-Steamwinder
group in Phoenix camp, also join the
dividend list. Those in the East interested in "coppers"—if they have not already taken cognizance of the fact—will
doubtless sit up and wonder why they
did not listen to the early pleadings of
I the original claim owners a few years
I since, when the cry for capital was most
ft insiste.it. That the stocks in the Boun-
B dary group on the New York curb are
wk showing remarkable strength and activ-
™ ity,. the following list of sales and prices

Besides the development of its mines
the Boundary boasts of some fine stretches of arable lands along the Kettle River, where orchards of no mean proportions give evidence of the fertility of the
soil. The several towns are all in a
healthy and more prosperous condition
than a year since when the Traveller
paid the district a visit. New industries
are springing up. The north fork of the
Kettle River will soon hear the shriek
of the "iron horse" - reverberating
through the valley. At Midway a big
irrigation project is about to be launch-,
ed, which will help to settle up many
broad acres of bottom lands lying between that town and Rock Creek, and
the building of the Midway & Vernon
Railway, now said to be assured, promises for the West Fork country cheap
transportation for its ores. Altogether
the Boundary district is rapidly coming
to the front in no uncertain way.
Grand Forks.
The "Gateway City" to the Boundary,
is rejoicing at the prospects of the development of Franklin camp, forty-five
miles to the north of the city, where the
McKinley and Maple Leaf properties
and scores of others are undergoing preliminary development. This camp is
the objective of the Kettle Valley Railway, which is now being constructed up
the North Fork. The Provincial government have built an excellent wagon
road to Franklin and two stages ply
the route three times a week. Recognizing the fact that "Billy' Harkin,
journalist and free-lance, is now sojourning JD the camp, breaking bronchos
and hunting big ga.^e between stunts of
reporting the doings at the mines the
Traveller can safely leave the telling
of the Wonders of its mineral deposits
'.n liis hands, for Harkin has done mor;
than any other individual newspaperman
in British Columbia to attract capital
for mining development—especially to
the Boundary—and now back in his old
stamping ground is heralding to the
world the possibilities of this latest of
Eldorados.
Grand Forks shows many signs of upbuilding, scores of new homes have been
erected within the past twelve months,
several of the hotels have been improved, a new steel industry has been started and the Boundary Iron Works are
rebuilding on a site near the Great
Northern depot. At the Granby smelter
—which, of course, provides the payroll for the town—the original building
covering the furnaces and convenors is
being torn down, to be replaced by a
steel structure. The plant is keeping
apace with the .development of the company's mines, and is today, the second
largest, it is said, of its kind' on the
American continent. It will always
stand as a monument in many ways to
the engineering ability of A. B. W.
Hodges, who has introduced several labor saving appliances that have helped
in no small measure to place the Granby
Company in the enviable position it
holds today as a dividend payer. His
genius and skill have paved the way for
those who may follow him in the treatment of the low grade ores of the camps
of the boundary, where every cerit sav:
ed in the different processes of treatment, means on the aggregate tonnage,
an added amount to the returns to the
shareholders.
With three different lines of railways
converging at Grand Forks, the city
holds a unique position among, the towns
of the southern interior. There is talk
of the C. P. R. moving its depot nearer
to thje business centre of the place, a
thing much to be desired by the townspeople, and that Jim Hill has recognized
the importance of the city in making
plans for additional extensions. Be this
as it may Grand Forks has fought for
everything it has and its citizens have
lost none of their former nerve and enterprise in everlastingly hammering until they get what they deem is due them.
Phoenix.
Columns could be written on the de-
development of the mines of the Phoenix camp. Today the Old Ironsides-
Knob Hill group, the Brooklyn-Stem-
winder group and the Snowshoe group
are all being actively developed, and the
camp has a payroll bordering on $80,000
per month. At the Granby mines, which
roughly includes 1,000 acres of mineralized land, some 460 men are at present
on the ..payroll. Between four and five
miles of underground development is
the total to date, and the greatest depth
from the top of the hill to the lowest
level is approximately 900 feet. The
new main three-compartment shaft on
the Victoria claim is practically finished
to a depth of 300 feet. Superintendent
0. B. Smith, who kindly furnished the
writer with the foregoing figures, says
the mine is outputting from 70,000 to
75,000 tons of copper-gold ore per
month. It is certainly a great mine—a
credit to those who have developed it,
to the district and to the Province

* A Lady's Letter *
^ By  BABETTE. *
Dear Madge:
Will any of us ever dare to malign
Victoria weather again, I wonder, after
this perfectly glorious phase of autumn
sunshine just passed? Captious critics
have been heard to emit vicious and ungrateful remarks about "accidents of atmospheric good humour" and the well-
known complaint of the pessimist, "We
shall pay for this by and by," has been
voiced by an ill-conditioned few. All
that nevertheless and notwithstanding,
we have had a glorious glimpse of what
Victoria can be like in the fall; so let
us thankfully and philosophically accept
Olympic favours when they are bestowed, leaving dismal tomorrows—if
dismal they must be—to arrive when
they may. Of course, people burst forth
into smart autumn creations while the
fine weather lasts. Equally of course,
silks and light gowns are being given
their last outing before winter arrives.
In Paris, judging from the display of
tailor-mades on view in the fashion papers, the popularity of thc corselet skirt
is on the wane. It needs an expert to
cut it, and the travesties that are already seen have doubtless been the
cause for its decline in favour. Black
and gray and white checks are much
favoured, brightened on some costumes
with a touch of red or green. White
cloth Princess costumes, trimmed with
black velvet, play an important part in
the modes today in Paris, the velvet being used for revers, straps, pockets, cuffs
and collar of the gown.
The Directoire ball gown is assuredly
the monopoly of the great dressmakers,
and consequently of the woman well endowed with the goods of this world.
• Several beautiful gowns in this style
were seen at the reception to the Governor-General and Lady Grey at the
Parliament Buildings, one of the most
successful being worn by a debutante.
The facility with which divorces have
hitherto been granted in America has
long been a, byword with us, and thc
case of thc young woman in South Dakota who divorced her husband because
he had a noisy way of banging doors,
and of another wdio cut the marital knot
because she could not stand navy cut
tobacco, are now likely to become fireside tales instead of daily occurrences,
for the United States Court has delivered an ultimatum which will have far-
reaching effects in altering the turbid
stream of social life as it flows through
the ranks of thc rich in Brother Jonathan's country.
To summarize the new statute: A
marriage bond made in one state cannot
be dissolved in another, except for
causes admitted by both. Hitherto a
dozen different states had a dozen different codes, and during the past fifteen
years the matrimonial "chasse-croise"
has been so fast and furious in Rhode
Island and other fasionable resorts that
people were satirically accustomed to
ask, "But why trouble to marry at all
in this country?" This highly moral
state of things has now received a decisive check. Not too soon, either, if
any semblance of family life is to be
left in this very semi-detached continent . That the judges' decision has
caused widespread consternation will not
be wondered at, seeing that it acts retrospectively, and so invalidates many
re-marriages that have taken place, and
in doing os affects the children of such
unions. Divorce and its consequences
will ever remain a vexed question—a
maelstrom of passionate opinions and
arguments, but tbat it is growing in
disfavour cannot for a moment be
doubted.
No modern house would be complete
without its clock in the hall, dining
room, sitting room or drawing room,
for, besides being a necessity of our
busy lives, with its stern reminder that
"life is short and time is Heeling," it is
a stately and imposing article of furniture, often extremely ornamental in its
elaborate carving or inlaying, Especially are the old grandfathers' clocks most
imposing. These clocks came into use
in thc rci?n of Queen Anne, though a
few specimens, we are told, existed before.   Since that time they have steadily
gained favour in our affections, and
their tall, dignified cases have afforded
much scope for the ingenuity and skill
of the carver and inlayer. Apropos,
Challoner & Mitchell have on view a
splendid assortment of clocks suitable
for drawing rooms, dining or sitting
rooms.
Nowadays we are nothing if not hygienic, and since microbes established
their disagreeable identities in a once
unconscious world, the aim and end of
every self-respecting householder has
been to discover and hunt out offending
entities from his midst. When the
scare was new microbes were discovered
in bank notes, on piano notes and even
newly engaged couples were warned
against osculation, lest measles and
mumps might effect transference from
one adored lip to another!
One of the most fruitful sources of
danger, undoubtedly, lies on the floor
over which we trail our gowns and walk
or sit, oblivious to the dust and deathtraps lying "perdu" in unswept corners.
The ideal floor is beyond doubt of polished wood, with rugs that get their
daily shake. These rugs, be they Oriental or otherwise, should be of the
best, and there is' only one place to obtain the best in this line, and that is at
Weiler Bros.
' Men and women have universal
wants, and one of them is undobtedly a
something to tempt one's variable appetite. This can be best supplied by a
good sauce, which will transform a
tasteless dish into one most appetizing.
There are many excellent sauces on the
market and Dixi H. Ross & Co. carry
the choicest.
Apropos of eating and eatables, don't
forget to ask your grocer for Canadian
Wheat Flakes; also remember that with
every package you will get a most useful gift of chinaware.

NOTES ON
PROVINCIAL NEWS.
Wants to Know.
The Phoenix Pioneer waxes facetious
at the cxpens.e of the Vancouver World
and Victoria Times. In his column of
Pioneer wonders the editor pertinently
asks bow many times these papers will
announce a Provincial election between
now and next spring. That is probably
like most of the conundrums one hears
at the Minstrel shows, to which no an
Hying in the face of public sentiment,
not only in the Kootenay, but throughout the West. The difficulty will have
to be met, but in a more statesmanlike
manner.
A Knotty Problem.
The  Revelstoke  Mail-Herald    has a
keen sense of humor and a nice sense
of proportion, to evidence which it re-
swer is expected. The nearest one can j cently devoted the whole of its editorial
get is that the rumor will be trotted out I space in one issue to a discussion upon
as often as the interests of the Liberal j fhe vital topic, "Should   Bachelors   Be
party need a pick-me-up.
A New Star.
A movement is on foot in the Kootenay to boost Mr. F. E. Simpson, better
known as the ''old man," for the soon
to be vacant position of Leader of the
Opposition in thc Provincial Parliament. Since Mr. Simpson paid a visit
to the Coast and was elected Grand
Master of the Oddfellows of B.
Taxed?" We regret that we have neither time nor space to deal with the
article, which should be epoch-making
in the history of thc Province. We must
content 'ourselves with culling the following choice morsel from the treatise
of our contemporary, which we make
the less apology for doing because it
avowedly sets forth thc moral.
"In conclusion we would say, let the
  C. he j marriageable young  women of  British
has been going it strong, having accept
ed the presidency of the Alberta Press
Association, and thc position of organizer for the Liberal party in the interior of the Province. If his friends
and supporters are serious about the
matter, and land the "old man" in the
House, there will be plenty of fun next
session with two end men in the show
like F, E. Simpson and John Oliver.
Iniudioious Criticism.
The Kaslo Kootenaian devotes three
columns of editorial in its last issye to
abusing the directors of the Nelson
Fair all because there is a dispute as to
the prizes awarded to the Kaslo Fruit
exhibit. The Week has no desire to
"butt in," as no doubt means will be
found by which the difficulty will be
settled in the near futurp. It is a pity,
however, that extravagant statements
should be published, even by the mouthpiece of an aggrieved exhibitor, as this
is the worst kind of advertising, and
will re-act, not only upon the town
from which it emanates, but upon the
industry which all arc endeavoring to
build up. It is clearly a case of washing one's dirty linen in public, a habit
which has been condemned from time
immemorial.
A Rejuvenescence.
For many months past we have missed
from the columns of thc Nelson Press
those oriental and cabalistic paragraphs
with which the venerable Hyastitc was
wont to summon the faithful to the
sacred confines of the magic circle. We
feared that the effusive and loquacious
Ricardus had, in the midst of some mysterious rite, suddenly vanished in a puff
of smoke, or a chariot of fire. Judge
of our surprise and delight to notice in
a recent issue of the Nelson News lhe
important and comforting announcement
which follows.
"Sir Aimer Fraser, supreme clerictts,
O.O.H.P., has wired the officers of the
local sanctorum that he will meet with
the tribesmen in Kootenay's chief oasis
on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Committees arc
now arranging to welcome their sheikh
with true oriental perfection. Swamis
from all Canadian oases will also be
present."
Whilst congratulating thc faithful upon the visit of the supreme clericus, wc
arc a in a little doubt as to the precise
character and status of the swamis from
the Canadian oases. The .phrase sounds
a little "off," but no doubt thc presence
of the supreme clericus will satisfy
Chief Jarvis that everything is as ii
should be.
Columbia consider well ere they spend
their best days in haughtiness and pride,
and consider the time when they may
have to look back, with no other consolation than a cat and a cup of tea,
which latter constitutes the much-dreaded state of old maidenism on the likely
partners whom they ridiculed and
sneered at and yet who may have turned
out model fathers and husbands. Therefore, ladies of British Columbia, condescend to treat a mere man, even if
a likely wooer, with a little more consideration, and now and then let the
sunshine of a true heart through your
icy sarcasm and apparent frozen smile,
and bestow upon him just the slightest
reminder to his perhaps dull perception,
that he can rely upon one at l.east to
contain flic spark of a woman's devotion.
This alone is the solution to overcome
the prevalency of bachelorhood in British Columbia, and as soon as the ladies
sec the folly of their ways, we will hear
more frequently the merry chimes of
the wedding bells and of less trips to
other shores in search of wives."
Who Is Ridiculous?
The Midway Star is good enough to
say that in poking fun at the Hon. William Templeman for declaring that he
was no politician, The Week has made
itself ridiculous. We should like to ask
whether the hon. gentleman does not
look more ridiculous for having adopted
a profession which he is ashamed to acknowledge. The Star undertakes to put
np a defence for his repudiation of the
term "politician" in tlie following
terms:
"We wonder how many of our members of parliament, federal or provincial, would care to get up at a public
function and openly declare themselves
politicians, since the word "politician"
is but another way of spelling "grafter,"
Resolution Rescinded
Everyone in the Province who knew
thc real temper of the Kootenay people
on the subject of Chinese labor fell sure
that within a short lime the resolution
of the Fruit Growers' Association, urging lhe Dominion Government to remove
the $500 head tax, would be rescinded.
This was effected by a vote of _'-' to
15. which about represents the popular
vote on lhe subject. While there ran be
no two opinions as to the urgency of
the demand for more cheap labor, and
while everyone will sympathise with
President Johnstone in his desire tO
. overcome thc difficulty, il must be admitted that in making such a rccom- !
mendatidn he and his supporters were ]
A Self Appointed Commissioner
Thc Medley Gazette is having a tilt
at F. J. Deane, the peripatetic editor of
lhe Nelson News, for having appointed
himself a commissioner to study the
labor question in the Similkameen. It
wonders why the gentleman who figured
on the Mongolian Commission a few
years ago and who has been frantically
struggling to keep in the limelight ever
since should have made a journey into
this far country lo study a problem that
could be studied in a much more acute
stage elsewhere. Mr, Deane announced
that he was going to take a holiday; he
did not, however, say that it was his in-
tcntion to combine business with pleasure. The Gazette gets down to business when il points out the kind of axe
that Mr. Deane was trying to grind, and
having regard to the methods employed
one can hardly doubt that his success
will be about ou a par with Ihat of the
fowler who spreads his net in sight of
tlle bird. Mr. Deane's friends tried
hard to secure him a nomination in Nelson, bin he was beaten out of sight both
by Dr. Hall and Fred Hume. A man
who is not broad guagc enough for Nelson will not do for the Similkameen.
Tic editor of the organ owned atv' controlled by Geo. A. fox can hardly inspire confidence as the opponent of thc
I'ltul-crnp of the G. T. P. This is what
the Gazette says:
"li is currently reported thai Mr.
Deane is plotting to induce thc Social
ists to pledge their support to his own
candidature as Liberal nominee in the
Similkameen. The Socialists and Labor
voters, however, have not forgotten
how he boasted on the platform in Hedley, in the Federal campaign in 1904,
that Duncan Ross had been sailing into
the Socialists and handling them without
gloves, and they are able to take his
measure now, when he comes begging
their support after having played them
false in the past when it suited his purpose to do so. The Similkameen knows
something of the advantage of having a
representative upon whom the big corporations have no strings, and they are
not disposed to throw away that advantage.
Laggan.
Thirty-five miles westward irom
Banff, Laggan is reached, whence a
carriage drive of two and a half miles
brings the traveller to one of the trinity
of lakes nestling high up in the bosom
of the mountains—Lake Louise—on the
shores of which is the C. P. R.'s Lake
Louise Chalet, where excellent accommodation is provided. This chalet forms
a desirable centre for exploration, and
sure-footed ponies or rigs may be
taken to the two other 'L'akes in the
Clouds," famed the world ovqer for
their intrinsic beauty. Perched on the
mountain side these stretches of water—Lake Louise (altitude 5,645), Lake
Mirror (altitude 6,550), and Lake
Agnes (altitude 6,820)—hidden from
the general view, amidst the most' romantic environments, are rare gems
whose loveliness and charms defy all
description. Picturesque chalets have
been erected at Lake Agnes and Saddleback Lookout. Swiss guides, provided
by the C.P.R., are stationed at Lake
Louise, and their services can be secured by mountain climbers. Good
bridle-paths radiate from the Lake
Louise Chalet in every direction.
A Progressive Viotoriar.
Many readers of The Week will remember Norman K. Luxton, who started out with Capt. Voss in the Tillicum on a voyage round the world and
landed up in Honolulu. Since he came
back to "God's country," as he politely
but forcibly terms the Dominion, he has
been wooing Dame. Fortune with his
usual characteristic earnestness. Locating at Banff it was not long before he
secured possession of Crag & Canyon,
and "boosted" the National Park persistently week in and week out during
the season. Then he launched out into
the curio business and owns the "Sign
of the Goat" curio store, one of thc interesting features of the village. He
also secured the King Edward hotel,
and with the assistance of Marager
Rose so popularized it that a big addition is contemplated. A general store
and a livery stable were added to his list
of business enterprises and Norman followed these up by embarking in a general mercantile business at Exshaw,
where a quarter of a million dollars is
now being spent by an Eastern company in the erection of immense cement
works. Recently he sold his livery
business in Banff, and also his store
there, and is now confining his personal
efforts to building up the Exshaw business. He is on thc road to become one
of the richest men in Alberta, which he
will be if pluck and persistency count
for anything.
Something Weird.
Under the caption of "An Ancient
Crustacean" the Rossland Miner gets
off the following yarn. Needless to say
that "Joe" Thatcher knows the value
of printers' ink—in advertising, and
since Joe is so well known in all the
mining camps from the Lardeau to the
Similkameen his many friends will not
be slow to realise the joke:
"The Strand buffet was thc scene of
a considerable gathering last night that
brought back reminders of by-gone days
, when Ed. Watson presided behind the
I mahogany,  and the  "governor" turned
the "izz" loose.     On the counter was
a quart preserving jar filled with a dif-
1 ferent kind of alcohol from that usually
I dispensed by  Scott and Thatcher,  and
i containing a unique specimen of the pis-
, catorial  world, usually associated  with
' lhe briny, though "Joe" declared to his
I customers  it  had  not come from  the
' ocean.   The specimen was the subject of
much  comment   for  i!s finding  is   rc-
j markable in the annals of mining, yet
I Host  Thatcher    declared    in  language
most positive and emphatic, that tlie
weird "thing" came up from the 1,450
foot level of the: Le Roi. "Lord Kelvin
says the world is at least 20 millions of
years old, while others add a few extra
millions to keep'on the safe side," said
Thatcher, "but fhe finding of a crustacean at this depth in tbe Le Roi certainly goes to prove it must have been
aeons ago when another earth came into existence.' The 'thing' is in a fair
state of preservation and has attracted
much attention and speculation as to its
origin."
Grand Forks Going Ahead.
There never was a time in the history
of Grand Forks—the Gateway City of
the Boundary—when the business outlook of the city was so bright and rosy.
New firms have come in, a railroad is
being built up the North Fork, Franklin camp promises to turn out well and
the agricultural and horticultural industries are flourishing. Among the firms
that are advertising liberally to make
known to the outside what Grand Forks
has to offer to the investor and home-
seeker is that of A. Erskine Smith &
Co. Mr. Smith, better known in the
Kootenays as "Coolgardie," is the senior
member, and E. H. C. Rawlinson the
junior member of the firm. Both partners were together in South Africa. The
firm has just purchased a business block
which is being remodelled at a cost of
$2,500 for a new office. When completed it will be the most handsomely
furnished and appointed realty office in
Southern British Columbia. Thc office
fixtures and furnishings are being made
to order, the big plate glass windows
came from Pilkington Bros, of Victoria, and thc well known furnishing
house of Weiler Bros, supplied the linoleum. Besides doing a general mining,
realty and financial business, thc firm
has the handling of the Franklin town-
site up the North Fork of the Kettle
river. Here they have erected a livery
stable and maintain a pack outfit and
two four-horse freight teams. The
freight outfit makes the round trip of
90 miles between Franklin and Grand
Forks in four days, which is conclusive
evidence that the recently constructed
wagon road is a good one. A. Erskine
Smith & Co. have just acquired for their
own account a livery stable and blacksmith shop in tbe Forks, paying for thc
former $5,000 cash. This barn is the
headquarters for their stage coach line
to Franklin camp. The firm has at present a monthly payroll of $1,400, which
considering it has only been in business
a little over nine months, is an excellent
showing.
Among recent important changes in
business at Grand Forks is the disposal
of the Hunter-Kendricks branch, general mercantile business there to N. L.
Mclnnes & Co. Ltd. Mr. Mclnnes was
previously with J. Y. Griffin & Co.'s Nelson branch, where he was exceedingly
popular with the retail trade.
C. S. Baker, a well known provincial
assayer and metallurgist, formerly in the
Provincial government's assay office in
Victoria, has opened an office. Since
going to Grand Forks Mr. Baker has
represented- as ore-shippers' agent a
number of the prominent mines. After
leaving Victoria six years ago, he went
to McGill University, taking a three
year course in chemistry, and returning
to British Columbia did work on tbe
coast, in the Slocan and later in tbe
Boundary.
F, Hartingal, proprietor of the brewery, has also kept pace with the times,
and has added a large brick addition to
bis premises. Mr. Sloan, formerly connected with the catering department of
the C. P. R. fleet on the Kootenay lakes,
is winning success with his cafe in the
Windsor hotel. Though only a short
time in business in Grand Forks he bas
demonstrated his ability as a chef, and
has today perhaps the most popular and
best conducted restaurant and dining
rooms in the city.
