* THE ELECTIONS
A man would have to be as blind as a
bat to deny that Mr. Morley has been able
to retain the solid Morley vote of about
1500, and to make an addition to it rather
more than the increased number of votes
polled this year as against last. ' Such a
state of affairs disposes of the general supposition that during the year he had lost
ground. On the face of it, Mr. Morley's
supporters might be excused for declaring
that Arictoria Avanted him for Mayor and
that the will of the people has prevailed
as it should prevail. The Week has no
desire to belittle Mr. Morley's victory, and
is prepared to admit frankly that the size
of his vote is a surprise.
MR. OLIVER'S FIGHT
In vieAV of the circumstances of Mr.
Oliver's candidature, the fact that he came
out only four days before the election, that
he had'no committee, no organization and
no public meetings, the result, if not satisfactory, is nevertheless a remarkable testimony to his personal merit and his popularity. His most ardent supporters hardly
expected him to win, although they hoped
that he might; but the surprise is in the
increase of Mr. Morley's vote. At the
moment of writing, a circumstance has
been brought to light Avhich may have an
important"bearing on this and Avhich may
necessitate another election.
A POSSIBLE NIGGER
It has been discovered that the Court of
Eovision, over Avhich Mr. Morley as Mayor
presided, placed some hundreds of names
upon the list upon the basis of an erroneous assessment, the point being that many
of the properties Avhich formed the basis
of the assessment Avere not actually OAvned
by the persons avIio registered for thein,
but were simply held under agreements or
options to purchase; ancl the City Solicitor is said to have given a legal opinion
that in all such instances the person had
no right to be on the list. If this opinion
should be sustained, it will at least necessitate another election; and with a straight
fight betAveen Mr. Morley and Mr. Oliver
there is no doubt but that the latter Avould
win. At the meeting held in the City Hall
last night, Avhen Mr. Northcote declared
the result of the poll, Mr. Oliver intimated
that he should be in the field again, and
this may occur sooner than he anticipates.
A MINORITY VOTE
There is another feature of Mr. Morley's
vote whicli should not be lost sight of. It
is that, although he Avon by a handsome
margin, he secured only 40 per cent, of
the votes actually polled, and 25 per cent,
of the total votes on the register. One of
the most serious features of the contest
was the fact that of 7,200 voters only
4,500, or about 02 per cent, of the people
Avent to the polls, the abstentions reaching
the large number of 2,700. The AVeek
has no doubt as to Avhat Avould have happened if any considerable number of these
had voted. It is admitted that Mr. Morley polled his full strength, running 300
votes above his admitted solid support. It
is also admitted that Mr. Turner avouIc!
not under any circumstances have had a
considerable accession to his voting
strength, which makes it clear that Mr.
Oliver would have been elected if only a
reasonable number of the absentees had
gone to the polls. The explanation is not
far to seek. The election Avas a complication.
MR. TURNER'S FOLLY
Mr. Turner's fatuous policy disgusted a
large section of the electorate, and they
became sick of the Avhole business. On
the other hand, Mr. Oliver's candidature
Avas too brief to alloAV him to enthuse them.
It is also probable that the man in the
street Avas not very Avide of the mark Avhen
he said that many voters resented the intrusion of a certain influence into the elec-
THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, JAWITARY
tion. The result sheAved that The AVtfek
sized up the situation exactly in its last
issue Avhen it said that the Colonist had
elected Mr. Morley at the Friday night
meeting Avhich proved sueh a "fiasco." If
the management of that paper is open to
a suggestion, it Avill lay this truth to heart
ancl abandon the attempt to lead public
opinion. The signal victory of Mr. Taylor in A'ancouver, placed alongside of that
of Mr. Morley in Victoria, is a significant
rebuke to the press which undoubtedly
contributed largely to the success of both
by its ill-advised ancl extravagant attacks.
TAYLOR AND MORLEY
Both Mr. Taylor and Mr. Morley have
gone in by increased majorities, ancl they
are fully justified in concluding that for
the increase, at any rate, they have to
thank the opposition papers. Perhaps it
would be unkind to say anything about
Mr. Turner. His position is truly a very
humiliating one. Deserted by the most influential of his oldtime supporters, casting
himself upon the tender mercies of a sectional interest that failed him at the pinch,
antagonizing the best element of the city
by refusing to Avithdraw Avhen it Avas
knoAvn that he could not be elected, and
finishing up at the foot of the poll behind
a candidate Avhom he defeated last year
by 400 votes and avIio Avas in the field only
a few days, Mr. Turner must iioav realize
that The AVeek knew Avhat it Avas talking
about Avhen it urged him to AvithdraAV ancl
told him plainly that he could not be
elected. The voting in AVard 5 sheAvs that
he could easily have been carried there
as alderman; ancl if he has any illusions
left on the subject of his proper "metier,"
the public has not. An aldermanic position is his limit.
THE FUTURE
In view of the uncertainty as to the
legality of the election, it Avould not be
profitable to speculate' much about the future conduct of affairs. The AA'eek cannot but be gratified that its slate has heen
endorsed by the electors to the extent of
7 aldermen out of 10, Avhich means that
even if Mr. Morley retains his seat he
Avill not he able to indulge in any vagaries
at the expense of the ratepayers. As a
matter of fact, Mr. Gleason is the only
member of the Council avIio is admittedly
a "Morleyite." The only other elected alderman claimed by the Voters' League is
Mr. Peden, and he is not to be classed as
a member of Mr. Morley's party, being
absolutely independent ancl prepared to
give support to any measure for the benefit
of the city, from Avhatever source it may
emanate.
NEW BLOOD
The AA'eek is pleased to see a considerable amount of new blood in the Council,
and is especially gratified at the young
men avIio for the first time will grace the
aldermanic board. In AV. C. Moresby, H.
M. Fullerton, George A. Okell ancl Alex.
Peden the City Avill have the services of
four bright, able, energetic and popular
men, all on the sunny side of 40, and all
representing important interests. It is a
singular fact that in almost every instance
the defeated candidates Avere men advanced
in years.
MR. HANINGTON
Another feature to be mentioned is the
very respectable vote polled by Mr. Hanington as School Trustee. At the first time
of asking he made an excellent showing
which will no doubt be improved upon
some future occasion. Noav for a word
about the By-laws:
THE BY-LAWS
Leaving the Sooke for later consideration, it is a matter of satisfaction to The
AA'eek that everyone of its predictions Avas
fulfilled, not least being the very desirable defeat of the Theatre By-law, about
which nothing more need be said, the last

cipal partnership in a fheaire. Tlie only
surprise is that the By-laAV should ever
have been recommended by the committee
of the Council appointed to look into the
matter. Of this committee, only one member is on the new Council, and he by the
narroAV margin of six votes. Amusement
lovers need lose no sleep over the result
of this vote. The AVeek has knoAvn all
along that a new theatre, of a far better
type than Avould have been secured by the
passing of the By-laAV Avas a certainty in
the event of the By-laAV being defeated,
and it will not be many clays before this
statement will be verified.
THE SOOKE BY-LAW
Perhaps, after all, the most significant
feature of the election, not even excluding
the mayoralty, Avas the remarkable endorsation of the Sooke Lake By-law. After
this vote, it is impossible to doubt that
an overwhelming majority of the voters are
opposed to the acquisition of the holdings
of the Esquimalt AVatenvorks Company on
any such terms and conditions as have
hitherto been suggested. It is equally certain that Avhoever may be Mayor proceedings will have to be taken without delay
to raise the million and a half and to take
the necessary steps to secure the Sooke
Lake district as a source of supply. The
opinion of The AVeek is not altered in the
least by Avhat has taken place. It still believes that to go to Sooke iioav is putting
the cart before the horse, and that it
Avould have been in the best interests of
the city to have purchased the holdings
of the Esquimalt AA'aterworks Company
under the provisions of the recent legislation. The voters think othenvise, however, and their servants must honestly endeavour to carry out their Avishes.
ONE PROBLEM SOLVED
It is to be hoped that the Avater problem
has iioav been removed from the sphere
of contention, and that the Sooke project
Avill be developed Avithout a moment's delay. This does not mean rushing into important engineering Avorks as soon as the
SIioav is off the ground; it should mean
the employment of the best engineering advice ancl the procuring of a very much
more comprehensive and detailed report
than has yet been prepared. This is the
preliminary step, and Avhen it has been
satisfactorily taken the matter may proceed to the next stage. Meamvhile, The
AA'eek Avishes to go on record in favour of
continued effort to come to terms with the
Esquimalt AA'atenvorks Company, being
convinced that the Sooke scheme can never
be made a success unless the tAvo projects
are amalgamated.
A GOOD COUNCIL
A'ictoria looks forward to an "annus
inirabilis" in 1911. It has every justification for so doing. It has an excellent
Council, dominated by a spirit of optimism, enthused "with the energy of youth.
Tliere is no reason why such a Council
should not deal successfully with all the
problems of civic administration and justify, as The AA'eek believes it will, the
confidence of the electors.
THE HOSPITAL ENQUIRY
In compliance with the suggestion of
The AA'eek, a special meeting of the Jubilee
Hospital Directors aviis held on AA'ednes-
day to consider the sad case of Charles
McKenzie, referred to in the last issue
of this paper. It Avill be remembered that
McKenzie had a seizure in the public
street., and Avas carried into a sitting-
room at the BroAvn Jug, Avhere restoratives
Avere applied. He Avas thence sent to the
Jubilee Hospital in a hack, accompanied
by a police officer, and Avas refused admission by Dr. Hasell on the ground that
he Avas not ill, but intoxicated. He was
sent thence to the police station, Avhere
he Avas found to be very ill, and Avhere he
fainted twice. The police authorities
placed him in the patrol, and, for the
second time, took him to the hospital. On
this occasion, Dr. Hasell accepted hiin.
The complaint lodged with The Week in
writing recited most of these facts, Avhich
The AVeek published, and demanded an investigation. McKenzie is a poor man,
practically Avithout means, ancl might well
have expired for lack of medical aid. The
AVeek therefore felt, and still feels, that it
Avas fully justified in giving publicity to
the charge, especially as before doing so it
sent a special representative to Dr. Hasell,.
Avho submitted the statement and took Dr.
Hasell's reply. Both Avere printed. The
Hospital Board exonerated Dr. Hasell
from blame, and declared that "he acted
in the best interests of the institution."
The AVeek does not cavil Avith this finding, because Dr. Hasell Avas able to sheAV
that McKenzie's record Avas not as good
as the gentleman avIio laid the complaint
in the first instance averred; and it was
this knoAvledge of Dr. Hasell's Avhich influenced hiin in refusing admission in the
first instance. But The AA'eek Avould respectfully point out that Avhen a man is
suffering from an acute attack of spasmodic asthma, and is reduced to such a
condition that, according to the evidence
of the police, he fainted tAvice, it Avould
hardly seem to be right to refuse him
medical attendance because the illness
might have been induced by excessive
drinking. It should also be borne in mind
that the three witnesses called by The
AA'eek, namely: Jailer Allen, Constable
McDougall, and Mr. George Meldrum, all
declared most positively that McKenzie
Avas not under the influence of liquor. It
should further be noted that he is notoriously subject to these attacks, Avhich have
on many occasions seized him in the street.
Jailer Allen produced his books sheAving
that McKenzie had been taken to the police station in this condition three times,
and the entries sheAved that on neither occasion Avas he suspected of being under the
influence of drink. Here the present incident closes so far as The AVeek is concerned, and it is for the public to say
Avhether the action that Avas taken is justified by the result of the investigation.
There is, hoAvever, a matter arising out of
this case Avhich cannot be dismissed so
lightly, ancl Avhich Mr. Duncan E. Campbell, the respected chairman of the Board
of Directors, admitted to be serious and
demanding attention. It is that the
Jubilee Hospital is to a very great extent
the resort of "habitual drunks," Avho haA'e
made it a sort of Inebriates' Home. So
many persons of this class are admitted
that at times they monopolize the attention
of the staff, are a source of annoyance to
the patients, and a heavy loss to the institution. While the investigation Avas proceeding, an independent Avitness volunteered evidence, which could not be disputed, that tAvo well knoAvn men about
town have not been sober for months, but
have paid several visits to the Jubilee Hospital Avhen on the verge of D. T.'s, and after a few clays' treatment have come out
"cured." It turns out that Charles McKenzie spent 110 days last year in the
Jubilee Hospital in a condition of illness
Avhich the House Surgeon declared Avas
mainly the result of over-indulgence in
drink. No more striking comment could
be made. The Week does not care
Avhether it is Charles McKenzie or John
Doe; the public money should not be spent
on habitual drunks; ancl it is no wonder
that Mr. Campbell and his zealous colleagues find themselves ahvays at the end
of their tether financially, and declare that
the time has come when the requirements
of the Hospital will have to be met in a
more systematic manner.

At The Street
Corner
By THE LOUNQER
It is somewhat amusing to read
the various announcements of the
new Mayors and Aldermen. They
all insist on the fact that they are
going to give Victoria good streets.
Somehow, I think I have heard this
before, but I have not yet seen the
streets improved. I would beg to
point out to our Municipal Authorities that the condition of the streets
in James Bay is most discreditable
to any city of 50,000 inhabitants.
From the junction of Government
and Belleville Streets the condition
of affairs is awful. I would also
point out that there is an Alleyway leading from Bastion Street to
Yates Street. On the way the chance
passenger encounters a back-fence
which leans outward into the sidewalk, unless this nuisance be remedied within a short time the City will
bc up against a damage suit which
will run into considerable cost. It
will be perfectly easy for a man in
possession of his senses to run
against this obstruction and to sustain a severe wound on his temple.
His hospital expenses will be up
against the City, which occurrence
would afford t';e ratepayers one more
opportunity of "getting back" at
their representatives."
It is about time that a big "kick"
was made about orange peel on the
sidewalks of Victoria. I made a
brief remark about this same nuisance in a previous number of "The
Week." My observations appear to
have had little or no effect. It is
time that I specifically called the attention of the Chief of Police and
the Police Officers of Victoria to see
to it that respectable citizens shall
not remain liable to be maimed owing to the indiscriminate scattering
of orange and banana peel on the
side-walks and main thoroughfares
of the Capital City of British Columbia. It is not mere boys and
children who are responsible for this
outrage; I have seen men who are
* responsible business men eating oranges and scattering the peel on the
pavement. These are men who are
of an age at which they should be
ashamed of themselves and I hope
that some day a City Detective will
be in a position to place them where
they deserve.
*   *   *
By the time that this paragraph
appears it will be all over with the
City Election. I notice that much
has been said about the bad lighting
of James' Bay. Not .so long ago I
had occasion to travel from Ontario
Street to Dallas Road. It was a
frosty night and I was somewhat
uncertain of my direction. The lighting was so bad that I was compelled
to strike matches and even with
those I fell across a half-frozen
slough which cost me. ten cents next
morning for a boot shine. I cannot
understand how it is that a prosperous and rich city like Victoria should
allow her outlying districts to remain in the outer darkness which
causes all kinds of trouble, and how
at the same time, she cannot manage
to maintain her main streets in decent enlightenment.
Oh, Victoria, Queen City of the
Pacific, let us hope that ere this be
printed your citizens will have a
practical, business-like energetic
Mayor and Council. Let us hope
that they will hold sensible views on
the segregation question; let us hope
that other matters of Municipal importance will be settled, and let us
hope that Victoria will be put on
the fair business footing to which her
position entitles her.
*   *   *
It is said that a special Providence
looks after children; I think this
must be true because I saw the most
miraculous escape on Wednesday last.
I was waiting at Oak Bay Junction
for a car. Presently one came along
from The Willows and at the corner
before thc Junction two boys jumped   off.    The  bigger   of    fhe    two,
wanting to "show off," ran to the
front end and, hanging on to the
outside rail, ran along with the car.
The ground was covered with slippery snow and it is not to be wondered at that he stumbled and fell.
By the mercy of the said Providence
he fell clear of the wheels, though
how he did it neither I nor the little
crowd of people waiting for the same
car can tell. If there had been an
accident, 1 suppose an indignant public would have blamed the officials
on the car, whereas they could not
possibly have been to blame. I
hope this paragraph will meet the
eye of the father of the boy referred
to and that he will take the boy together with a particularly big stick
into the wood-shed.
Isn't it a curious thing how quickly
we become dependent on what we
now call public utilities, but which
ten years ago were styled luxuries.
Owing to an accident in the powerhouse on Tuesday last the greater
part of town was deprived its electric light. Immediately, there was a
corner in candles. People had become so accustomed to switching the
light on that more than 75 per
cent, of the residences were left in
darkness, neither lamps nor candles
being available. I heard two men
discussing the affair in the car; one
lamented the fact that he had lamps
at home, but no oil; the other had
had oil but no lamps. I believe that
one of the gentlemen referred to had
recourse to his bicycle which possessed both oil and a lamp. Personally, I am horribly afraid to go home
in the dark, but on this occasion I
not only had to go home in it, but
to go to bed in it.
It is satisfactory to learn that there
appears to be every probability of a
big "turn-out" at the Public-school
boys' dinner to be held at The Empress hotel on the evening of the
21st. The Committee are especially
anxious for it to be distinctly understood that evening dress is optional
and they expect to see quite a large
percentage of men sitting down who
have arrived unexpectedly without
such habilaments. A large number
of tickets have been applied for.
Those Old Country Public-schoolmen who intend to renew old associations are reminded that they should
communicate with Mr. Charles St.
Barbe of the Balmoral Hotel, enclosing the price, $2.50, and also the
name of their school. There is every
likelihood of thc banquet being the
cause and giver of life to a scheme
for forming a club or association
composed of Public-schoolmen. If
this be accomplished a great and
good work will have been undertaken,
and one which cannot fail to be of
great benefit to Britishers on their
first arrival in this Province.
* *   *
I think that when we have a cold
snap such as we arc having at present the local S. P. C. A. man might
get busy seeing to it that teams do
not have loads incommensurate with
their foot-hold capability. On Tuesday morning I was walking over the
Causeway and saw a big waggon
loaded to capacity with sacks of
bran; the driver no less than the
team realised the state of the roads,
and he was most considerate in his
treatment of the horses. The poor
brutes slipped and stumbled at every
step. When we get a cold spell such
as we are enjoying at present, it is
up to the owners of the express wagons to see to it that no heavy loads
are carried. I met a man the other
day who commented on the same
thing with regard to coal laden waggons going down Douglas Street.
For the sake of the horses I would
put in a plea and say "either rough
shoe them or give them smaller
loads."

Why is it that banks of Victoria
arc so absurdly understaffed? It is a

less inducement to a young man of

make a complaint on their own behalf. It is not fair that customers
should have to wait anywhere from
twenty to thirty minutes in order to
do their banking. This is what happens at present on busy days in the
week, notably on Saturdays. With,
I believe, one exception all the banks
in Victoria are paying big dividends
to their head-quarters branches in

right to demand that some of these

MUSIC
AND   THE  STAGE
The New Grand Theatre
Undoubtedly the star turn at the
above theatre has been that contributed by Miss Mabel McKinley. Miss
•* cKinley has a good voice ancl
knows how to use it; she also has
the inestimable gift of being able to
accompany herself. It is a long time
since Victoria has had the chance
of seeing such an artiste on the
vaudeville stage and it will be probably a longer period before another
of the same calibre appears. The
crowds that havc been filling Government Street outside the New
Grand are eloquent testimony to the
appreciation which Miss McKinley
has aroused. I enjoyed the 'cello
work in the musical offerings of the
Pendleton Co. Miss Emily Dodd &
Co. have been playing a sufficiently
amusing litlte sketch entitled "The
Awakening of Lucille." This playlet
is somewhat different from the hackneyed vaudeville offering and has
been well received. • Hammond &
Foster are good in the second part
of their humorous turn and The Ro-
saires give a good and original exhibition on the wire. Manager Trumbull may be fairly said to have scored a success this week.
The Crystal Theatre
Mr. Jamieson has certainly achieved one triumph. He has learnt how
to keep his theatre warm during the
cold snap and that goes for a lot.
The pictures on view are well up to
the usual standard of excellence; the
"Millionaire Milkman," is an amusing and somewhat instructive character play, whilst "The Mysterious
Elopement" is distinctly comic.
The Majestic Theatre
Western drama Avas the strong feature of the Majestic programme during the middle of the week, but there
was one particularly powerful story
told on the screen, viz., the difficulties which lie in the path of the
ex-convict. "The Stigma" is a striking film and one which is, alas, only
too true. It i sthe curse of our modern civilisation that Ave put a man in
gaol as a punishment for crime and
then hound him down when he comes
out.
Romano's Theatre
The famous Imp films have again
been to the fore in the Government
Street house. It appears that a new
actress has been engaged by the Imp
people to enact the leading roles and
she is said to be the nnest exponent
of this art in New York. Certainly
her first appearance on a Victoria
screen was a great success. Comedy
seems to have been reigning at Romano's, and when all is said and
done, with the exception of really
instructive films, I am inclined to
think that comedy is better than anything else in a moving picture show.
Laugh and grow fat is my motto, and
I believe that the average theatregoer will agree with nie. Messrs.
Quagliotti seem to have sized up the
wishes of their patrons pretty accurately, judging from the attendance.
MOMUS.
New Grand Theatre
Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Keane and
Company at the Grand next week
will present to vaudeville audiences
something new in the characters assumed by them in their little one-act
play, "What Money Couldn't Buy."
The sketch is a little story from real
life, the characters are real people
and it is played by real actors.
Europe dubbed little Miss Clara
Rogers "the mistress of the 'cello,"
when it heard her play after she had
come through five years of instruction in the Conservatory of Music
of Buda Pest, under the personal direction and patronage of the great
Solotta. The European music halls
began bidding for her vaudeville debut, but John W. Considine happened to be on the Continent at the
time and after the warmest kind of
competition he succeeded in winning
her with an American contract.   At

the end of her Sullivan and Considine contract she will return to London under contract Avith the Tivoli
theatre.
"Nelson" combines a truly remarkable skill as a juggler with a vein of
humor that was born in him and the
combination makes a vaudeville offering that is fairly irresistible.
There is many a vaudeville "regular" will remember pretty Gertie
Van Dyck and her double barrelled
voice, Gertrude, it may be remembered, sings soprano when she feels
like it and when she is tired of that
switches over to bass.
It is back to vaudeville and glad
of it for the Mimic Four." They have
been working in various musical
comedy productions these last three
years, Avherefore the "two-a-day"
as well as the "three-a-day" has seen
nothing of them. Their act, however,
has profited by it for it is a little bit
the best hodge podge of fun and nonsense that has been seen this many
a day, they arc bringing back with
them.

VENICE
BY BOHEMIAN
Well is Venice called "The Queen
of the Adriatic." I think that there
are few more fascinating cities in the
world than this historic place with
its water streets, its quaint bridges
and its magnificent palaces so replete
with old-time interest.
I reached Venice during the month
of August and was previously warned
that I should find it intolerable in
the height of summer; that the waters
would be foul, and that the atmos
phere resulting therefrom would be
malarious. I found none of these re
marks correct. It is true that some
of the narrower water-ways were just
a little bit unpleasant, but, with that
exception, everything was all that
could be desired; as for illness, it
was not being thought about. Se
dom, if ever, have I spent a more enjoyable fortnight than I did some
eight years ago in Venice.
The journey from Rome was not
so pleasant. It started in discomfort
owing to a fracas with the Manager
of the Hotel Quirinal. Seeing that we
had been visitors during the off-season and that the hotel had been undergoing a sort of spring-cleaning
we had some excuse for thinking that
the bill would bc proportionately
small. But, alas, for human hopes.
It was the heaviest one wc had to
encounter throughout the whole of
our six weeks travel, and it was presented after banking hours, wliieh
prevented us from using out letter
of credit, and after our having booked out tickets for the midnight train
to Venice. Naturally the British Embassy seemed the best place to go
for help, seeing that wc had passports and the aforesaid letter of credit.
But the British Ambassador had gone
away for his holiday; so had the
charge d'affaires. Tbe Anglican
Clergyman was our next objective,
but he too was on his vacation. There
remained but the Presbyterian minister, and he had followed the example
of his fellow Britishers. Now were
we worse off than before, because
there was the hack to pay for. Disconsolately we resolved ourselves into a Committee of Ways and Means
and sat down in thc half-lighted Rotunda to discuss finance. We had
quarrelled wilh thc Manager, and
even if wc had not it would have
been of no avail as hc had gone out
to the theatre and would not bc back
till our train was due to leave. What
were we to do? We had about a
couple of lira to do all necessary "tipping" pay our guide, philosopher and
friend who had looked after us in
Rome and provide ourselves with sustenance till wc reached Venice. Then
appeared thc "Dcus ex machina."
There was a waiter who spoke excellent English and we told him of
our plight. "How much to the sig-
nors require?" hc asked. 1 said that
a five-pound note would do. Would
you believe it, that angelic character
collected a heterogeneous multitude
of porters, waiters, chambermaids and
bell-boys and came up with the necessary amount in small change, for
which he accepted my personal
cheque?
Joyfully wc went to the station, but
not equally joyfully did we spend the
night. It was insufferably hot and wc
had to keep thc windows of our
sleeping compartment open. The air
came in al! right, but so did thc
smuts from the engine. Niggers could
not have looked blacker in the morning. But thc approach to Venice was
worth all. Over thc marvellous
Causeway which bridges the lagoon
we sped and finally descended at the
station whence we took a boat instead of a hack to our destination,
the far-famed Hotel Danieli. I take
this opportunity of saying that I consider this same hotel one of the most
comfortable and luxurious of any in
which I have ever stayed; and it is
full of associations with the past.
Venice is one of the few cities in
the world which still possess a sumptuary law. ln view of the fact that
many gondoliers wcre ruining themselves by lavish expenditure on their
gondalas, a law was passed that all
gondolas had to bc painted black.
But, black or while, there is a romance abo..t these boats which nothing can dispel. To go up the Grand
Canal on a line summer's evening and
listen to thc scrcnaders is an expert
ence not to be forgotten.
Venice is associated in most peo
pie's minds with the Palace of the
Doges, Avhere is affixed the famous
Lion's mouth which gaped for accusa
tions addressed to the Council of
Three and directed through motives
of private envy and malice; the Bridge
of Sighs, and St. Mark's Cathedral.
The former is now used as an Art
Gallery and is filled with master
pieces. The historic Bridge leading
from the Palace, which was also th
Hall of Judgment, to the prison on
the other side of the canal, is dis
appointing from the point of view
of architectural beauty; but the Cathe
dral facing on the Plaza is magnificent. On one side of thc square stood
the famous Campanile which had fallen just before we visited the city. It
is said that an architect of Venice
had prophesied the exact date on
which it would fall, but this may be
merely one of those idle stories which
appeal to popular imagination. All
about the Plaza swarm the pigeons
which are so well known; nobody
has ever yet written a story in which
Venice figures, without mentioning
these birds which flock around the
visitor and feed out of his hand.
Many happy days we spent seeing
places of which we had heard and
read. On one occasion we started in
a gondola for Lido, but a violent
wind and thunder-storm broke just
after our departure. Our craft was
well-nigh wrecked and it was only
after Herculean efforts on the part
of our boatman that we were able to
tie up under a bridge.
It was with sincere regret that we
were compelled to leave Venice, travelling home by way of Milan, Lucerne and Ostende, of which places
i may havc something to say in a
future issue. There were many other
cities in Italy which 1 should like to
havc visited but time was limited, but
I have never been sorry that they
wcre omitted from our list in order
that Venice might bc seen by
BOHEMIAN.

OBITUARY
The late Edward Musgrave
On Jan. 5th Death claimed one
more pioneer who came out to Britisli Columbia in 1885. Edward
Musgrave, born in Tnurin, Waterford, Ireland, has crossed the Great
Divide.    He  was  thc youngest    and
st surviving son of Sir Edward
Musgrave, 3rd baronet and was born
in 1834. He married Miss Anatasia

in life evinced a desire for Colonial
life. New Zealand and the Argentine knew him as a sheep-rancher and
in both countries he was universally
respected. In the early '70's he returned to Ireland, but did not long
remain there. In 1885 he came out
to British Columbia and purchased
thc well known sheep-ranch of
Messrs. Pemberton Bros., on Salt
Spring Island. In 1891 he removed
to Duncans, where he remained till
the death of his wife, which occurred
in 1902, after which sad occurrence
he took up his residence in Victoria,
there residing until his death. The
funeral took place last Saturday at
Duncans. Mr. Musgrave leaves behind him a family of seven, five sons
and two daughters. The eldest son,
James Musgrave, is acting as Chief
Constructing Engineer on a railway
system in South America. John
Musgrave, who together with his sister, Anatasia, Avas with his father to
the end, is a prominent real estate
man in Victoria, and a member of the
firm of Swinerton & Musgrave. The
three remaining brothers, Robert,
Edward, and Newcombe are engaged
in mining business in Mexico. The
eldest daughter of the deceased is
living in England, having married
Surgeon-Major Elderton.
The late Mr. Musgrave was an optimist of the finest kind. He was a
firm believer in the future prosperity
of Victoria and he imbued his friends
and acquaintances with the same spirit. He was a lover and friend of all
manly sports and games and manifested his interest by attending
whenever he was able. Mr. Musgrave will always be remembered as
a line type of the old-fashioned gentleman of perfect manners, marked
courtesy, kindly nature and broad
sympathies. His death is a sad loss
to thc community and "The Week"
wishes to express its profound sympathy for the family.
EDITORIAL
(Continued from Page 1)
THE LOCAL PRESS
The AVeek has just a feAV words
to say, more in sori'OAV than in
anger, ahout its local contenipor-
iries. First of all, the Colonist,
in reporting and commenting' upon
the hospital enquiry above referred
0, was kind enough to eliminate
most carefully from thc report of
its representative the evidence of
three reputable citizens that McKenzie was ill and not drunk. No
doubt this is what it calls "reporting"; but the significance is that
this omission furnished it with an
opportunity to work in one of
thoso illustrations of smug complacency so dear to its soul Avhen
it declared "there are some
charges whicli carry their oavii refutation." Such editorial comment
is neither "frank nor ingenuous"
iu view of thc mutilation of the
report. It is true that there are
some charges Avhich carry their
own refutation, as, for instance,
the charge made by AV.  Steven-

The Temptation of John
He was a drayman at Lemp's well known brewery
and it was well known that he had a well matured taste
for the product of the firm. But one day he turned up
wearing a blue ribbon in his button-hole.
"Bless me, John," said the manager, "have you
joined the noble blue ribbon army?"
"Looks a bit strange, doesn't it?" said the lorry-
man, with a twinkle in his eye.
"It does," said thc manager, "why do you do it?"
"Well," said John, "it's like this. I wear the blue
ribbon because it makes men like to tempt mc, and
when they tempt me (here he winked solemnly) I
succumb I"
If you know Lemp's, the best bottled beer procurable, you will appreciate thc drayman's wit. If you
don't know Lemp's better get acquainted with it.
Try a bottle. Or, better still, order a case for your
home from any dealer. Don't get an inferior beer.
Insist on Lemp's.

son, editor of the Citizen, that
'the editor of the Colonist is a
perfect' gentleman." The other
matter affecting the local press is
a statement made hy the same W.
Stevenson in the special issue of
the Citizen on Thursday, to the
effect that The AVeek Avas guilty
of falsehood in saying that leading members of the Ministerial
Association were supporting Mr.
Oliver. Now that the election is
over, The AVeek has no desire to
drag these gentlemen into the political arena, but is quite prepared
to give their names to Mr. Stevenson, avIio, in spite of his cloth, is
evidently not a practical exponent
of Christianity, and Avho at any
rate has forgotten one of the commandments Avhich used to run
"Thou shsilt not bear false Avit-
ness against thy neighbour."
Perhaps, however, it is a mistake
to take this gentleman seriously,
and now that the election is over
he may be prepared to admit that,
his charge against the editor of
The AVeek, like that against the
editor of the Colonist, "carries its
oavii refutation."
TRIUMPHAL MARCH
The Old Country papers to
hand sheAV that our esteemed
Finance Minister, Mr. Ellison, had
a splendid reception throughout
his tour and at the same time did
great work for B. C. His address
at the Banquet given in his
honour is probably the weightiest utterance ever made in England by a representative of the
Province and Avill receive further
notice in next issue.
Infectious Diseases
To thc Editor,—Are teachers, in the
city schools, supposed to refuse
children admission to their respective
rooms when it is known that the
home from which they come has an
infectious disease?
A case was brought to my notice
today where children from an infected home were admitted to school.
This is the way disease is spread in
our midst, and thc authorities wonder how it came about.
My contention is that the teacher
should have sent these children home
instanter  and not allow the  schools
to become a very hotbed for disease.
Yours truly, 1

is presented by the United Play Co.,
under tasteful surroundings with artistic environment.
Honeymoon Trail
The coming of a really meritorious
musical play invariably means capacity business at Victoria Theatre on
Tuesday, Jan. 17, so it is highly probable that thc big LaSalle Theatre
(Chicago) musical comedy success,
"Honeymoon Trail," will do a record-
breaking business. "Honeymoon
Trail" was written by that musical
trio Hough, Adams and Howard, authors of "Thc Time, thc Place and
thc Girl," "The Girl Question," "A
Stubborn Cinderella," etc., and is a
rare combination of real comedy,
novel production numbers. The cast
is a notable one, including such celebrated musical comedy favorites as
Louis Kelso, Fred Wyckoff and Ar-
linc Boling. Thc chorus, which is a
feature of the attraction, comprised
thirty of th cshapcliest ancl handsomest members of the "merry merry"
ever seen with a road attraction.
A Stubborn Cinderella
Manager Denham of the Victoria
Theatre takes great pleasure in announcing that arrangements have
been completed with Chas. A. Goet-
tler whereby thc musical play, "A
Stubborn Cinderella," thc greatest
musical ancl dramatic success of thc
past season, will be presented on
Thursday, Jan. 19. This is the same
attraction that had a run of 465 consecutive performances at the Princ-
for six months at thc Broadway
Theatre in New York and had also
long runs in Philadelphia and Boston.
It holds many records—thc record for
having "sold out" for more perform
ances than any other attraction ever
produced in Chicago, the world's record, inasmuch as every seat for every
performance was sold out twenty
clays in advance. Thc company is
headed by the well known comedian,
Corit Albertson, and the charming
young prima donna, Miss Hazel
Kidke.
The Queen of the Moulin Rouge
"The Queen of the Moulin Rouge"
is to the sphere of the song play
what Du Maimer's "Trilby" was in
its halcyon day, to thc dramatic
stage. The sweetly sympathetic side
of feminine life, its triumph over environment is placed in a setting of
lyrics ancl song in a most fascinating
manner. In this work of Paul M.
Potter, John T. Hall and Vincent
Bryan there is romance, heart interest, clashing ensembles, novelties,
dances, brilliant color effects and superb costuming. A simple, though interesting, story is told in two acts
ancl ten scenes, in which the theatregoer is delightfully entertained. The
Metropolitan company, including
Harry Short and Snitz Edwards,
comes here Tuesday, Jan. 24, at the
Victoria Theatre, direct from a yer's
run in New York ancl a six-months'
run in Chicago, ancl promises to be
the feature attraction of the season's
bookings. The presenting company is
unusually large ancl is said to include
a stunning chorus and ballet.
The talking machine records of thc
song hits in "The Queen of the Moulin Rouge" have had a very large
sale. Possibly this is the best compliment which could come to John T.
Hall, thc composer. The reproductions can only be made popular by
actual musical merit, as the personality of thc singer cannot bc appreciated. The American production of
"The Queen of the Moulin Rouge"
under thc management of Samuel E.
Rork, accounts for an entirely American company, and for a translation
suitable for audiences in the country.
None of the brilliantly invigorating
features of a wholesome nature have
been eliminated, and the piece is said
to be more delightful than ever ancl
not at all offensive. The costumes,
dances, scenic and light effects arc
said to be superb. The No. 1 organization, which was seen at the Circle
Theatre in New York City for one
year and at the Olympic Theatre in
Chicago for six months, will be seen
at the Vietoria Theatre on Tuesday,
Jan. 24. :
The Great Comedy Hit "Seven Days"
William F. Kirk, baseball and
sporting writer of national reputation, confesses that he doesn't care
for the theatre, that ordinarily it
bores him to sit through a performance. Consequently his wife had no
easy task in getting him to take her
to see "Seven Days" at the Astor
Theatre in New York.   He urged her
er Company present it with a famous
New York cast direct from 'the Astor
Theatre where it scored a record run
of two years.

THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, JANUARY 14,  1911
TOPICAL TRIFLES XL
By Onlooker.
People who are not interested in
politics must find life slightly dull
just now for the papers are full of
political bickerings. The English
ones wrangle over the respective
merits of the Peer and the Working-
man, and the locals are full of the
bon M(orley) O(liver) T(urner)S of
municipal contestants.
It is sometimes quite an easy matter to make points by simple misrepresentation, especially when the
victim is (as generally the case) the
much talked of workingman. No one
is more easily bluffed than thc workingman and the Spectator hits the
nail on the head when it says: "In
every country where the franchise is
democratic thc number of poor electors must enormously exceed the
number of rich electors. Therefore
when a politician is out for votes it
is clearly profitable to him to preach
the desirability of transferring the
money of the rich to the pockets of
the poor. The first criticism to bc
made is that, that whatever may be
thc inner motive of the speaker, the
doctrine which he advocates is obviously  profitable  to  himself."
The truth of this will apply whether the doctrine advocated refers either
to taxation or to other methods of
getting money out of the man with an
income. And a logical conclusion
may well be that the workingman's
darling may not necessarily be the
heroic champion of the downtrodden
class he professes to emancipate. A
significant instance occurred in Victoria this week illustrative that the
clement of self interest is not the
peculiar failing of a certain class. A
candidate for aldermanic honours declared himself in favor of a certain
comfortable wage for civic workmen,
but when asked if he favoured thc
eight hour day, he hesitated. The
reason of his hesitation transpired
that he himself had risen above the
status of Lhe employee to that of the
employer. Tt is unnecessary to state
that a nine hour day suits his requirements admirably. Why should
he want a change?
Talking of misrepresentations,
look out when you are buying apples.
Has anyone suggested a paper mill
among the growing industries of this
Province? It seems that Canadian
eggs are in disgrace also. What is
the cause of this underhand behavior?
It is certainly alien to the British
idea of fair play. It savours rather
more of the American idea of being
"real smart."
Do Canadians want to remain
Britishers, or are they ready and
willing to become Americanised?
The Editor of a local paper asserts
that "cheque" viz., an order on a
bank, should be spelt "check." Johnson's Dictionary gives both spellings,
and Webster says: "Uusally spelt
'cheque' in England." The English
spelling is surely right for the English language, and we do not want any
deviations a la Teddy Roosevelt in
spelling or anything else shoved
down our throats on this side of the
line.
Have you ever read a paper called
"The Citizen?" It is not without a
certain ability and is full of the art
of the mob orator, which art is, to
quote a well-known writer, "Thc same
through all the ages. " It was the
same in Athens two thousand years
ago as in Mile End (or Victoria) today. It consists essentially of a direct appeal to the passion of envy
accompanied by thc kind of humour
which coarser tastes enjoy."
This paper only appears in Victoria
at a certain time of the year, but if
you want it to go on as a monthly
you are invited to say so. As I have
just said, there is something in this
paper, but whether there is enough
to make it worth while all the year
round remains to be seen.
Before and After
She was a frivolous, fashionable
young woman with beaux galore, but
one man with only a small Income seemed to be the favorite.
"Youll have to work hard before you
win that girl," said his mother,
"And a good deal harder after you
win her," answered his father, who
knew what he was talking about.
Dominion  and Provincial
News
Selkirk Centennial
The question of a grant for the
Selkirk Centennial Exposition is one
of the matters being considered by
Hon. W. S. Fielding.
Travellers to Vote by Mail
W. D. McPherson, M.P., will place
before thc Ontario legilature next
session a proposal that commercial
travellers be allowed to vote by mail.
Rhodes Scholar
News was received recently in
Kamloops of the winning of a Rhodes
scholarship by Walter J. Pearse, son
of E. T. W. Pearse, of that city. Mr.
Pearse, Jr., has been an exceptionally
brilliant student at McGill University,
Montreal, taking highest honors in
his class twice in succession, and has
also taken an active part in sports,
especially tennis. Thc Rhodes scholarship carries with it $i,S00 a year
and a three years' course at either
Oxford Cambridge. Just when Mr.
Mr. Pearse will 'leave for England to
take advantage of his good fortune
is  not yet definitely known.
The Stormy Petrel
Fighting Joe Martin, formerly of
British Columbia, but for the past
two or three years a resident of England, was elected to parliament there
a little over a year ago and re-elected on the 5th instant. Martin had
vainly tried to have his ability recognized in British Columbia for
some time before leaving this province, but the voters refused to see it
as he desired. In fact, Joseph had
become sort of a joke in this province, but in England hc appears to be
taken seriously.
C. N. R. to Yukon Territory
The Canadian Northern Railway
has been given power in a bill to
construct a railway from Edmonton
through the Peace River to the Yukon territory. The construction
starts next year. Bonds are on sale
at present in London. The railway
will open twenty million acres . to
homesteaders.
Dividend on York Loan
Practically all the property originally held by the York County Loan
company, which collapsed in a sensational fashion five years ago, has
been sold, and a second dividend of
25 cents will be issued to the 114,000
creditors of the company, probably
next fall.
Crowded Jails
So overcrowded have the provincial jails on the coast become of
late that it has been found necessary
to ship 20 prisoners from New Westminster to Nelson for accommodation
One disadvantage of the mild, moist
climate of the coast region is that
vagrants and loafers who will not
work for an honest living flock there
in winter. A community, however,
can only support a limited number of
loafers, and when begging is futile,
thieving and swindling begin. It is a
least a consolation to think that thc
increase in criminality is not greater
proportionately than thc increase in
population.
Stewart to Be Linked with Edmonton
Application will be made next
session to thc Dominion parliament
by Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann for
a charter for a railway line from
Stewart, B. C, to Edmonton. The
line is to connect with the projected
Great Waterways route, extending
from Edmonton to Fort McMurray, if
Messrs. Mackenzie nnd Mann's negotiations to secure the Waterways
charter arc successful. These are
now pending with the Alberta government. The result may be known
in a week or ten days, for within
this period will likely be made public
the report of the Royal Commission
which investigated the alleged graft
proceedings in regard to the flotation of the Great Waterways bonds,
first sold to J. Pierpont Morgan &
Company and resold by the latter in
London. The bonds are guaranteed
by thc Alberta  government.
