THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1908
The mess into  which the
Tourist     affairs of the Tourist Asso-
tddle. ciation have been muddled
by  the   inner  clique   now
Jeming the policy and deliberations of
body, must be regarded with dissat-
[iction by every progressive citizen of
itoria.    It seems inevitable  that the
Jkerworm of cliqueism should eat into
vitals of every association organised
I civic advancement and improvement in
ptoria.    Instead of being conducted in
proadminded and united manner, em-
cing the assistance of the whole com-
nity, the real power of The Association
been narrowed into the hands of a
men, lacking that public confidence,
Dlutely  essential  for  success   in  any
ilic movement.   It seems but yesterday,
t a crowded and enthusiastic meeting-
persuaded by The Tourist Association
ransfer all its energy, enthusiasm and
tributions to the care and direction of
t body.    Today we find  it without
cy,   without   secretary,   and   without
ds, save a donation from the municipal
is.    In place of energy and harmony,
have wrangling and washing of secre-
al linen;   in place of a spirited cam-
*n, we have a weak-kneed suggestion
vastc our taxes on a class of advertis-
which generally  reaches  the   waste
er basket.    Apologists for The Asso-
ion are in the habit of blaming the
thy of the people.    This  excuse  is
n threadbare-—-apathy is the direct re-
of cliqueism.    What self-respecting
1 will waste his time either attending
meetings of an association, where every
coiner is ignored or insulted by seeing
suggestions turned down by a section
the   meeting',   representing   the   real
er and deftly playing into each others
ds for the sole purpose of retaining that
er ?   This miserable clinging to a little
if authority is easily traced through-
the whole muddle.    When Mr. Cuth-
; resigned the secretaryship, last fall,
ead of immediately appointing another
etary and reaching out for new sub-
ptions and new avenues of publicity,
affairs of The Association were al-
bcI to sink into a semi-moribund state,
the additional burden of a most un-
tnesslike   arrangement   regarding  the
•etarial duties, followed by the inevit-
3 result of an empty exchequer and
1 absence of any plan of campaign for
season.   Can one for a moment credit
supposition that the wealthy city of
toria was unable and unwilling to put
say, two hundred dollars per month
eenre the services of an efficient sec-
ry, or, is it not morally certain, if this
been done, that the business of The
■.ociation would have been   alive and
gressive, instead of stagnant '•*   At the
I'enth hour, the clique comes before the
.He with the statement that nowhere
this wide world can be found a secre-
, who is willing to work at the salary
can afford to give; inter alia, imply-
\ that the people of Victoria are too
111 to do what smaller and less wealthy
iniunitios are doing all over the West.
iy again attempt to introduce Mr, Cuth-
011 the half-and-half proposition, but
rely fail to acquaint tlie public with
names, recommendations and capabili-
f'of other applicants or volunteers—one
licant was endorsed by over seventy
ling citizens.   Immediately they appre-
e such backstairs methods will not be
mitted, like sulky schoolgirls they ex-
111:—"if our man cannot play in this
ie, nobody else shall;   we'll play hy
■selves;   we won't have a stranger iu
EDITORIAL
our back-yard." The result is to place
nominal responsibility on the shoulders
of a man who already has his hands full
in managing a daily newspaper—enough
for any one man to do successfully. In
the Times (Victoria) of May 9th, an interview with Mr. Herbert Cuthbert is
published under the caption of "Cuthbert
on the Petition"; a very evident attempt
to whitewash the clique, after the damaging effect of the Eeal Estate petition.
The whole interview is misleading from
start to finish. The diatribe commences
with a denial by Mr. Cuthbert that he
applied for or was offered the secretaryship. The reporter forgot the press reports of the previous meeting whereat—
quoting from the Colonist—"they were of
opinion that Mr. Cuthbert's offer, made
on the understanding that he should be
permitted to attend to his private affairs
while not occupied with those of The Association, was the only one open to consideration." As this report was published on the 5th and not contradicted
until after the Eeal Estate men's petition,
it may reasonably be assumed that it was
correct. The balance of the interview is
an attempt to throw mud at the real estate firms, by means of an odious comparison of donations; implying that they
had little right to criticise the management of The Association's funds. A glance
at the petition is sufficient1 to show that*
the petitioners confined themselves entirely to the $4,000 donated by the municipality*—a protest which theyr, as taxpayers,
had every right to make. A protest it
should have been obvious would surely
be made. A protest whicli the appointment of Mr. A^elson is bound to revive at
an early date. It is a pity that the good
intentions of resigning, at the meeting,
held on May 8th, were not carried out.
This would have been far more straightforward than making an empty threat
through the friendly columns of the Times.
With a new board and a new secretary,
new life would have been infused into the
dust and ashes of The Association; as
the matter stands at present, tlie confidence
of the public has been lost, and the affairs of the Association entrusted to those
who have destroyed that confidence.
What the Managing Direc-
Experientia tor of the Colonist does not
Docet. know about the law of libel,
and what his Counsel does
not know about framing criminal indictments would fill a volume—indeed many
volumes. Now that the former lias
passed through the ordeal of the Supreme
Court in an action for libel, he will bo
able to sympathise witli the Manager of
The Week who had a similar experience
more than a year ago, except that he was
on the opposite side of the case. It would
be unkind, and is probably unnecessary
to dwell on the details of the case, the
simple facts are that in one of his impulsive moments the .Managing Director of
the Colonist entered an action for criminal libel against Phil Smith for a squib
published in a campaign sheet af the time
of the last Municipal Election. The squib
alleged that the Managing Director's zeal
for tlie public interest in Advocating in the
pages of the Colonist the purchase of the
Esquimalt Waterworks Co.'s holdings by
the City was not inspired purely by philanthropic and disinterested motives, and
that in reality he stood to make a large
rake-off if the deal went through. The
Managing Director considered this state
ment libellous, and was probably so advised
by his Counsel, but as the Chief Justice
very emphatically declared, the statement
contained no inuendo, was distinctly not
libellous, the prima facie meaning did not
necessarily involve any unfavourable interpretation, and that to strain it to a secondary meaning in order to find some foundation for an action was not permissible.
After the case came into Court, it took
Mr. Higgins about thirty seconds to discover that if he ever had a chance' of bringing it to a hearing he lost it by defective
drawing of the indictment. There were
other statements not included in the alleged libel, but contained in another portion of the paper, which might or might
not have strengthened the case, but the
Chief J ustice * pointed out that the time
for amending the indictment had passed,
and that the only mode of procedure now
open was to commence "de novo" in the
Police Court on a new indictment. Thus
ends what would undoubtedly have been
an amusing case and the matter may well
be buried amid the limbo of election
corpses which should never have been
resurrected. It would, however, be a pity
to lose sight of the sententious utterances
of the Chief Justice, in his somewhat animated debate with Mr. Higgins. When
the latter found himself floundering with
a hopeless case and a faulty indictment,
he plunged frightfully, quoting ease after
case which as the Chief Justice persistently pointed out had no bearing on the
matter. Some years ago an English writer
compared Chief Justice Hunter to the
great Master of tlie Polls, Jessel, and the
resemblance was never more obvious than
on Thursday last when he smilingly parried the bludgeonlike blows of Mr. Higgins, turning them aside with the deftest
repartee. It is a pity that his many "bon
mots" should not lie recorded, they form
a lucid exposition of the law of libel with
a humourous aside on the folly of wearing a thin skin. The whole episode which
lasted less than an hour was a most interesting interlude in the sordid work of trying and sentencing footpads and vagrants.
The sequel illustrates once more the almost
boundless privilege of the press, the folly
of taking serious notice of election squibs,
and above all the inadvisability of assuming control of a newspaper for purely
philanthropic purposes; it is a hard role
to live up to.
The criticism of The Week
A Juggler on |]l(, degrading character
With Words. „f ltlU(.|, 0f the matter published in the Victoria Times
has been amply justified by the occurences
of tlu- present week. On Wednesday the
Grand Jury made a presentment with direct reference to the Times report of tho
Garesche-Carter case, and their action was
endorsed by flic Court. Today Tlie Week
is in receipt of a letter from a well known
public man in Vancouver, which appears
in fhe correspondence column and will
repay perusal. The writer bears witness to the fact that boys and girls were
seeking for copies of the objectionable reports which appeared in the Times. If the
expert word juggler who put up such ,1
specious defence in the editorial columns
of that paper on Thursday can derive any
satisfaction from his own statement of thc
case, in view of the facts set forth in the
Vancouver letter, he mtisl he an oven more
extraordinary individual than his most
merciless critics would make out. No
amount of special pleading can niter the

fact that with respect to this particular
case the Times published salacious reports calculated to deprave youth, at any
rate. That such reports were condemned
by the Grand Jury and the Supreme Court
of British Columbia. Leaving out all side
issues, there are few parents who will
agree with the sapient Editor of the Times
when he defends his action on the ground
that children will learn impurity in any
case ancl they may as well learn it from
the newspaper as not. It is difficult to
believe that any one man would seriously
put forward such an argument. That this
is no straining of the position taken up
through the editorial is made perfectly
clear by the following quotation: 'The
belief of the Grand Jury that these facts
may be read in the home where purity is
respected, is, we submit, based on the fala-
cious idea that the home is a monastery
or a convent into which no echo of the
outside world permeates excepting through
the printed page. * * * We are not
of those who believe youth should not be
forearmed for the work of life by a knowledge of the actual dangers which lurk in its
pathway." If the Editor really means
this he has rendered a valuable service
to his readers by making it clear. Parents
who think their children will hear quite
enough of what is objectionable without
the special purveying of the Victoria
Times, will hereafter govern themselves
accordingly.
Caught
Napping.
It   is  not  often   that  the
Vancouver News-Advertiser
is wrong in its facts, but
for once the _Nestor of Coast
Journalism has been caught napping.   In
an editorial  comment dealing with  the
election recently held in Wolverhampton
the writer comments upon the surprising
reduction in the Liberal majority,  and
goes on to remark that the constituency
has always been a stronghold of Liberalism, having been represented for many
years by the redoubtable Henry Labou-
chere.   As a matter of fact the writer has
evidently confused  Wolverhampton with
Northampton, the latter lias been represented by Mr. Labouchere since the days*
of Bradlaugh, but he was never even a
candidate in any division of Wolverhampton.    The particular constituency under
discussion, East Wolverhampton, has had
no representative  in Parliament except
Sir Heury Fowler.   Prior to the division
of Wolverhampton into three constituencies—• East, West and South—it was represented for some years by Charles Pelham   Villiors,   the  great   reformer,   aud
Henry Fowler.    When tlie division took
place Mr. Villiors selected Wolverhampton South, Mr. Plowden was returned for
Wolverhampton West, and Mr. Fowler for
Wolverhampton East.   Mr. G. It. Thorne,
who now enters Parliament for the first
time has   resided   in  Wolverhampton a
quarter of a century.    He was as a young
man Organizing Secretary for several of
Mr. Gladstone's campaigns, is a successful
lawyer, and stands very high in the community,    lie has twice unsuccessfully contested Wolverhampton South.    The division for which  he has now been elected
includes part of the City and the adjoining towns of Willcnhall, Wedneslield and
Heath Town.    The voters are all of the
working class, and there is a very large
Irish   vote,   probably   now   reaching   two
thousand.   The result, would indicate that
here as in Manchester, the Irish vote went
for the   Unionist candidate.    When the
whole parliamentary history of Wolverhampton    is   taken    into   account,   Mr.
Thome's narrow escape from defeat must
be regarded as a truly remarkable success

By THB LOUNQBR
An admirer of The Week has
called my attention to the fact that
some daily papers, and one at least
published not a thousand miles from
Victoria, are in the habit of concocting correspondence in their own office and inserting it as letters in the
usual column. On carefully re-reading a letter whieh appeared in this
particular paper on Tuesday last, I
have come to the conclusion that I
must have been pretty dense or I
should have discovered at the first
reading, its resemblance to the usual
editorial style. I suppose the trick
is simply a trick of thc trade, and
defensible on the ground of custom,
but it does not increase my respect
for the editor who either connives
at it, or so clumsily perpetrates it
that the ear-marks are conspicuous.
1 notice that the Victoria Amateur
Dramatic Society propeses to repeal
the Mikado on Friday night, I pen
this note on Wednesday. Far be it
from me to raise any objection to
the repitition, but I do want to offer
a mild protest against the form of
advertisement, which announces that
the charge for admission will be
merely "nominal," and that the proceeds will be devoted to charitable
purposes. As a matter of fact the
charge is from $1.00 down, thc original charge being $1.50. Having
seen the performance 1 should hardly consider this "nominal," and without being too severe, would have
liked to suggest to the Committee
if there were time, that "the punishment would fit thc crime" much more
exactly if the charge had been 50c
and 25c, even then it would be far
from nominal. Seriously, why does
not some experienced hand at this
business tell thc Victoria Amateur
Dramatic Society that the only way
to fill a theatre at amateur performances is to charge popular prices, and
further that more money would be
made by crowding the house at "two
bits" than by endeavouring to maintain a scale of charges so altogether
out of proportion to the merits of
the performance. 1 shall be surprised if the proceeds pay the rent of
the theatre.
Last week end 1 strolled out to
watch the golf championships at Oak
Bay, and although I could never work
up any enthusiasm on my own account for the game, I was fain to
admit that under certain circumstances its attractions might well
prove irresistible. Given conditions
as they were at Oak Bay and any
man might fairly be excused for advocating golf—glorious weather, beautiful scenery, links in splendid condition, and a large concourse of enthusiasts of both sexes bent on enjoying the game and on dispensing
hospitality.
in connection with the championships, my congratulations are hereby tendered to Mrs. Langley, for
the consistent form she displayed
throughout, and for the brilliant concluding game which secured for her
thc championship. Congratulations
arc also due to Mr. Gillespie for the
excellent run he gave Mr. Munn of
Seattle, who finally won out in thc
men's championship. Mr, Gillespie
only needs a little more confidence
to become a champion; hc has
strength and reach, and plays with
good judgment. I greatly regret that
the popular veteran Harvey Coombe,
did not win out. By common consent
hc was far below his usual form, and
I am of those who believe that he
will yet retrieve his position. Not a
word can be urged against Mr.
Munn's victory, he played steadily
throughout, and at times brilliantly,
and looked like a winner from the
first day. The meet was a thoroughly successful one, aud the arrangements reflected credit on all concerned.
In common with hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Victorians, I rejoice to hear that at last the Wil-

The Week
A Provincial Review and Magazine, published every Saturday by
"THE WEEK" PUBLISHING
COMPANY, LIMITED.
old age one must at any rate grow
old, it will be generally conceded that
the art of doing so gracefully should
be regarded as an important achievement. A person of mature years
should form the most delightful companion, and indeed there are not a
few "old boys" who are the best
sports and the most popular beaux.
Tliere is nothing more delightful than
to see a well preserved man of over
sixty taking an interest in the occupations and recreations of youth.
Where nowadays can one find the
zest displayed by the "old boys" who
gather at Lords and discuss cricket,
with an expert knowledge and an enthusiasm which puts the younger
generation to shame? Where will you
find a harder rider to hounds than
many an old country squire well within the shadow of three score years
and ten? Where will you find a more
elegant beau than an erect, ruddy
grey-haired veteran bearing his honors with humility and pride, the cynosure of every eye in the ball room or
the salon. Where again will you find
the vivacity, the wit, the humor which
sets the table in a roar where the old
bucks bear the brunt of conversation? And where the fund of humorous story and side-splitting jokes
which experience sets against what
passes muster among the younger
generation? I
The pessimism of the age has made
an indelible mark upon our young
men. They can neither drink, joke,
nor ride with the men of forty years
ago. They have livers, and some of
them megrims, and in any event care
aderie which all too rarely exists between childhood and old age. No
one can vie with the sweet tempered
and unsoured veteran in romping with
childhood or counselling with youth,
and it will be a sorry day when the
position of chief adviser is not filled
by the man or woman who has
"grown old gracefully." All this is a
plea for naturalness; for cultivating
both lobes of the brain, for the reservation of a shrine, sacred from thc
unhallowed tread of feet which tramp
only in the mart; consecrated to the
worship of some goddess, around
whose memory is woven the true romance, whose worship is never neglected and whose devotees longingly
await release from the captivity of
business cares that they may burn incense day and night before her.

Victoria. 14th May.
Sir,—In your issue of last Saturday you state that several of your
subscribers have complained because
you very justly praised the management of thc Colonist for refraining
from publishing the disgusting details
of the Garesche-Carter case. These
subscribers of yours, permit me to
observe, must bc a very queer lot,
and, as another of your subscribers,
I should like to express my very
hearty contempt for them and the
class they represent.
The Colonist did a very fine thing
in using a wise discretion in the sort
of literary food it provided for our
homes, when it omitted the. details in
question. Thc Week, however, did a
much finer thing when it gave due
and public honour to an enemy who
had performed a meritorious act. It
takes a man to do that. The subscribers to whom you refer are evidently not men in any decent sense
of the word.
By thc way, it may interest yourself, the Colonist, and the aforesaid
subscribers, to know that the Victoria morning paper lost money by
its creditable reticence in this matter,
as the demand for the issues of the
Victoria Times containing the unsavory particulars was by no means
confined to this city. On the Wednesday following thc publication of
the evidence by the Times—that is,
two days later—I had occasion to be
in Vancouver, and, while waiting for
a friend in the Thomson Stationery
Co.'s bookstore, I counted no less
than eleven people in half an hour,
who came in and asked for the Victoria Times. They were of both
sexes and all ages, from boys and
girls of thirteen or fourteen to men
and women of mature years. They
were all well enough dressed people
—but their faces!
I asked one of the clerks why there
was so great a demand for a Victoria
paper   in   a   Vancouver   bookstore.
"Oh," he replied, "it's that Garesche
case, you know. The Times has the
only full report of it, and they say
its the hottest stuff for a long time.
Thc boys and girls have been in after
it all day. We could have sold hundreds of copies if we had had any.'1
Truly, the Victoria Times is doing
a great and noble work in the cause
of purity and decency—I don't think.

Sporting
Comment.
A big disappointment was in store
ar the lovers of baseball who attend-
d the opening game at Oak Bay
ist Saturday when the local repre-
entatives were badly beaten. It was
ot only the spectators who were up
gainst it, but the management of the
lub is in the same fix. The management had everything ready for the
iig game but it is an old saying that
he "best laid plans of mice and men
;ang aft aglce" and such was the case
ast week. There are very few who
re entirely conversant with the
auses which lead up to the result
nd there are many who are already
disparaging the efforts of those who
re endeavouring to put a good team
11 the field, but if lhey were acquaint-
d witli the facts they would be boost-
ng harder for the club instead of
nocking. To lay the blame to any
me man is to name Wm. Black-
lourne, who uutil Saturday was a
trong favorite with everyone who has
n any way been connected with the
lyb. It is not generally known that
he present management undertook to
irect the affairs of the club almost
olely to give Victorians an oppor-
unity to see their popular pitcher in
ction; he was depended on to do the
lost of the pitching but made on
xtra effort to get in condition and it
.as only on the Thursday evening
rior to the game that he refused to
itch. Even then it was decided that
c should play first, but owing to
is condition on Friday the club was
gain disappointed. On Friday morn-
iig Plummer was dispatched to Settle in search of a pitcher. He ar-
ived in the Sound city during the
fternoon and was not successful in
Hiding any of those whom he went
after and it was not until 11 p.m. that
he secured Lewis, who refused to
come to Victoria without his catcher.
Realizing that he had to secure some
one, Plummer did the best he could
under the conditions and agreed to
take the two. Unfortunately he was
unable to complete arrangements in
time to catch the night boat. Along
with Kelly and Lewis he did not
reach Victoria until Saturday at 2.10
p.m. and was hustled straight to the
grounds without having lunch. These
arc the conditions under which the
team played and to any person who
understands the game it is not to be
wondered at that the game was so
poor. The committee of management
however, is not downcast and despite
the fact that they are in thc hole to
quite an extent they intend to go
through, and it is to be hoped that
the people of Victoria will come to
their assistance and patronize thf
games. Several changes have already
been made in tlie team and when it
is again seen in action it will include
Jack Rithet and B. Schwengers, both
of whom will strengthen thc line-up
materially. The next match will be
played on the 23rd inst., when the
University of Washington will be the
opposing team, and a good game is
anticipated.
there would have been no quitting
such as occurred. In this connection
I am informed by the management
of the club that while Brady and
Merryfield wcre tried out before being signed up, it was done for thc
protection of the public and it was
the universal opinion of those who
witnessed the match that they wcre
evenly matched, the coon making a
much better showing than he did the
night of thc light. The club is now
arranging for its second match which
will take place in the Assembly rooms
on the night of May 25th, when Merryfield will try conclusions with Kid
Foley of N'anaimo. This should
prove an interesting contest and will
110 doubt attract a large crowd. It
is thc intention of the club to give
the people of Victoria good clean exhibitions of boxing and wrestling and
owing to the increase in popularity
the club has had to secure larger
quarters. The Assembly Rooms have

Colour Photography.
The management committee of the
Provincial Athletic Association has
adopted a stringent rule in connection with any glove contest that they
may in the future present to the
public aud it is one that will appeal
to all lovers of good sport. The
ruling of the club is to the effect that
the contestant who quits or in other
words is afraid to continue will not
receive any portion of the gate, his
share going to some charitable institution of the city, and it is left to
the referee to decide the question. If
this rule had been in force at the
time   of   the   Merryfield-Brady   light
The craze of the moment in the
artistic workl is "colour photography"; but perhaps I had better
begin my story at the beginning,
which takes me back to a Friday
evening a fortnight ago when I was
favoured by being permitted to attend a private meeting of the Victoria Photographic Society. Who
knows that there is sueh an institution? Not the man in the street I'll
be bound and yet it nourishes in our
midst, a coterie of devotees to the
camera, who keep alive the worship
of the "Black Art."
Of course I do not use this phrase
in tiie ordinary and invidious sense,
but as contrasting the work of the
camera with that of the brush. Mow-
ever,  hereafter  even  in  that  connec
tion the phrase would be inept, because photography is no longer a
question of light and shade but of
light and shade phis colour.
I was inducted into the mysteries
of colour photography at the session
referred to by my good friend, Mr.
A. V. Kenah, who is an experienced
and accomplished photographer. He
read a paper on the subject which was
mainly a comparison of the various
methods by which coloured photographs can he produced with special
reference to the recently discovered
Lumiere process.
Into the intricacies and complexities of the various methods I dare
not enter, as a layman 1 should be
tripped up from the start, hut for
the non-expert reader I may say that
the production of the colouring is due
to a thorough knowledge of the
spectrum, and a careful study of the
laws which govern tlle reflection of
natural  colours.
The lir^t method adopted was the
use of a camera plate with ruled or
rather engraved lines of many hundreds to the inch. This was followed by a substitute in the rilling of
parallel lines with colours, and the
climax was reached when Lumiere
substituted tiny dots of colours which
are smeared on the camera plate in
an emulsion. The method of taking
and developing is precisely similar
to that resorted to in ordinary photography, the only difference being in
the chemicals used for developing.
Mr, Kenah exhibited one or two
exquisite specimens of his work, and
I have seen others since. Colour
photography is now a "fait accompli,''
and it will not hc long before we shall
see specimens for sale, but its usefulness is limited by thc fact that
the photograph can only bc produced
on glass, whether it will ever be
printed remains to be seen.
CAMERA.
Empress Theatre.
An especial feature is provided for
the next week's programme in the
pictures of "Ben llur." This mag-
nificent story of Genera! Len Wallace is familiar to everyone and these
pictures of it arc splendid and will
be of interest to old and young.
"Wooing and Wedding of a Coon"
is a colored film, comic in its nature
and laugh-provoking in the extreme.
The "Despatch Rider" is a melodramatic picture of great interest,
the central figure being a daring
young girl.
'I'he musical end of the programme
will be well handled by Mrs. Joseph.
This is a programme of high class and
one that none should fail lo see.
The children's matinee will be giveu
on Wednesday and an entire change

Might Be Either.
Mrs. Baker—My old school friend,
Mis. Jones, writes nie that she is
just beginning to live.
Miss Ann Teek—Widowed or divorced?
The Polyglot  Dish.
The Waiter—Awful sorry, sir, but
that's the worst o' bavin' a French
dish prepared hy a German cook for
an American customer in a Hungarian  restaurant.
Might Be Worse.
"Oh," said young Miss Gtishcligh,
"I feel so sorry for Bess Bullion that
I just can't keep from crying whenever I think of her. It was terrible
—terrible!"
"Goodness mel" replied Miss l-'ay-
clenfast,   "What's tlie trouble?"
"Tliat Earl she married, you know,
It has been found that he is an im-
poster. He isn't an earl at all! He
hasn't any title whatever!"
"Dear me! That's too bad. Still
he's a man." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1908.
The Lounger.
(Continued from Page Two)
lows car line is to be extended to
Mt. Tolmie. The procuring cause of
this may be gravel, but so long as
the line is constructed and made available for passenger traffic, I care not
how much gravel they haul over it.
Cadboro Bay is one of the most delightful spots in this highly favoured
district; I look forward to the time
when there will be a large boating
and bathing pavilion on the West
shore, and I predict that in years to
come, it will be the popular rendezvous of pleasure seekers. Even now
it is the nearest camping ground
available for any considerable number
and ready access by a car service
would vastly increase its popularity.
Talking of Cadboro Bay reminds
me of the marine road which is to bc
constructed from Oak Bay. I suppose it will bc completed in " the
sweet by and by," but progress is
terribly slow and there is very little
yet to show for the Government grant
and the enterprise of the Oak Bay
Council. I wonder if nothing can
be done to expedite matters a little.
At the present time unskilled labour
is both plentiful and cheap. Why
not push it along during the present
season. I know of no work which
would do more to popularize Victoria
than the completion of this splendid
Marine  drive.
There must be in connection with
the office of Inspector of Buildings
or possibly the Engineer's Department some person whose duty it is
to report on the ventilating arrangements of public buildings. I do not
wish to particularize but there are
such buildings in Victoria, where
_ hundreds of people frequently gather,
in which not the slightest provision
is made for renewing a supply of
fresh air. Unless I am entirely mistaken this is a breach of some bylaw or at any rate building regulations, as well as being a standing
menace to the public health.
Throughout Canada too little attention is paid to ventilation, even
churches are often ill-provided for,
but low-ceiled rooms without any
Openings at the top, and only doorways at either end cannot for a moment be considered to comply with
requirements of the law or of com-
con sense. The building inspector
will make no mistake if he make a
special examination and report on
this matter.
I was in the Police Court on Tuesday when the hold-pu case on the
Esqlllttialt RoafJ Was beihg tried. I
heard the summing up of the Judge,
which, as is always the case with
Chief Justice Hunter, was perfectly
lucid and to the point. To the amazement of everyone in Court the Jury
brought in a verdict "Guilty of Theft''
and eliminated any finding whicli
would hold the prisoner guilty of violence. The final verdict, in the form
in which it was given, was a gross
miscarriage of justice, and one calculated to shake the public confidence in the time-honored system of
Trial by Jury.
Beyond that there is something to
be said of even more serious import.
I am credibly informed that two
members of the Jury were personal
friends of the prisoner and if so they
should never have been upon the
Jury. I am prompted le ;.sk who is
responsible ior such careless drafting of Jurymen, or to put it another
way. why is not the prosecuting
Counsel fully posted with respect to
the names submitted, so that he could
lodge a protest wherever necessary?
There is a screw loose somewhere,
when a prisoner can secure two personal friends on the Jury which tries
him.
It is currently reported that thc
City Council is just waking up ti> lhe
fact that a man named "Jones" lives
on Rockland avenue. It is even said
that tin' Mayor recently asked
"who is 'Joues'?" lie is likely
in acquire considerable information
about the gentleman in question between now and the end of July.
In Real Life.
He left the farm when but a lad, a
fortune quick to capture.
Ere long a city job he had, and he
was filled with rapture.
He went from 7 plunks to 10, whereat
he proudly married.
But never got a raise again; at 10 per
week he tarried.
And now the farm is up for sale;   it
surely is a pity!
The farmer looks in every mail for
succors from the city.
But nothing comes.   The farm is sold
beneath the Sheriff's hammer.
For real  life is  hard and cold, not
like the gentle drammer.
The Way to Find Him|
"My wife and I are going to spend
a   few   months   with   her   people    it
Strong's Corners," said the meek little
man, "and I want you to mail your
paper to me "
"Yes," said the clerk, "what's your
name?"
"Well—er—to make sure, I guess
you'd better address it: 'Mary
Strong's Husband, Strong's Corners."
Los Angeles, Cal., has a sleeping
lady who has been in slumber for
six weeks. The rumour that she came
from Philadelphia as a tourist is indignantly denied by the press of the
Quaker City.
When the reaction comes, it will
be freely admitted that all the rich
are not bad and that all the poor are
not good.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY MAY 16, 1908,
the Seamen's Institute, a keen interest
will be taken in it by the patrons of
this worthy cause.
Wilton Lackaye.
One of the biggest attractions of
the present season at the Victoria
theatre will be the engagement of the
distinguished actor, Wilton Lackaye,
who is to be seen here in a superb
production of Hall Cain's famous play,
"The Bondman," dramatized by the
author from his novel of that name.
It is not often that a dramatic combination of an actor of the standing of
Wilton Lackaye and a play from thc
pen of an author as famous as Hall
Caine is seen, and the result can well
be imagined. Wherever Wilton Lackaye has been seen this season in "The
Bondman," he has met with flattering
receptions and both from an artistic
and financial point, the appearance of
the distinguished player has been a
complete triumph. The company
selected by Manager William A
Brady to support Wilton Lackaye is
a powerful one, and numbers thirty-
five well-known players, while the
scenic production is most elaborate,
the scenery and effects having been
brought to this country direct from
Drury Lane Theatre, where "The
Bondman" han for one year to the*
delight of Londoners. The date of
the appearance here of Wilton Lackaye in "The Bondman" at the Victoria Theatre will be on the evening
of Monday, May 18th.

The New Grand.
Beyond a doubt the programme at
the New Grand this week is away up
in G. It is hard to decide which is
the cleverest turn, but probably the
palm should be awarded to the Seven
Samois who constitute one of the finest acrobatic and tumbling troupes
ever seen in Victoria. On the
score of merit, Hale and Corbin, the
banjoists are easily top notchers, nothing better than the overture from
Stradella has been heard on the banjo,
These two men are artists. Betty
Sholz, violinist, gives an altogether
high class turn, her appearance and
demeanour are distinctly pleasing
whilst her playing is such as is rarely
heard in a vaudeville house. Her
opening selection "The Angels Serenade" was exquisitely played. The
Earl Sisters give a very amusing and
quaint Dutch entr'acte, and Macks
Hart and LaMar a peculiar New England playlet, entitled 'Cynthia's Visit."
This turn is quite out of the ordinary,
the part of Cynthia being remarkably
well done, but the real attraction of
the play centres in Lily Dean Hart,
who is worth going a long way to see,
and who dresses and dances most attractively. To wind up, the moving
pictures which illustrate the Runaway Horse, are distinctly the most
amusing which Manager Jameson has
been able to display to his numerous
patrons. Crowded houses and enthusiastic applause testify to the public
appreciation of what in my judgment
and taking it altogether is the best
programme ever put on at this popular house.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY i6, 1908
The mess into winch tlio
j Tourist affairs of tlie Tourist Asso-
»dle- ciation have been muddled
by  the  inner  clique  now
erning the policy and deliberations of
body, must be regarded with dissat-
Iction by every progressive citizen of
Itoria.    It seems inevitable that the
[kerworm of cliqueism should eat into
1 vitals of every association organised
[civic advancement and improvement in
Itoria.    Instead of being conducted in
Iroadminded and united manner, eni-
ling the assistance of the whole com-
liity, the real power of The Association
been narrowed into the hands of a
men, lacking that public confidence,
llutely essential  for  success  in  any
[ic movement.   It seems but yesterday,
a crowded and enthusiastic meeting
I persuaded by The Tourist Association
Vansfer all its energy, enthusiasm ancl
Iributions to the care and direction of
body.    Today we find  it without
ley,   without   secretary,   and   without
lis, save a donation from the municipal
Is.    In place of energy and harmony,
liave wrangling and washing of secre-
lil linen;   in place of a spirited cam-
In, we have a weak-kneed suggestion
Taste our taxes on a class of advertis-
which  generally  reaches  the  waste
Ir basket.    Apologists for The Asso-
lon are in the habit of blaming the
Ihy of the  people.    This excuse  is
threadbare—apathy is the direct re-
of cliqueism.    What self-respecting
will waste his time either attending
Ineetings of an association, where every
pomer is ignored or insulted by seeing
suggestions turned down by a section
lthe   meeting,   representing   the   real
er and deftly playing into each others
|s for the sole purpose of retaining that
pr.   This miserable clinging to a little
authority is easily traced through-
|the whole muddle.   When Mr. Cuth-
resigned the secretaryship, last fall,
lad of immediately appointing another
Itary and reaching out for.new sub-
Itions and uew avenues of publicity,
Jaffairs of The Association were aiid to sink into a semi-moribund state,
the additional burden of a most un-
lesslike   arrangement   regarding  the
|3tarial duties, followed by the inevit-
result of an empty exchequer and
absence of any plan of campaign for
season.   Can one for a moment credit
supposition that the wealthy city of
ioria was unable and unwilling to put
say, two hundred dollars per month
ecure the services of an efficient sec-
ry, or, is it not morally certain, if this
been done, that the business of The
.ciation would  have been  alive and
ressive, instead of stagnant?   At the
mth hour, the clique conies before the
ic with the statement that nowhere
lis wide world can be found a secre-
who is willing to work at the salary
can afford to give; inter alia, imply-
that the people of Victoria are too
to do what smaller and less wealthy
uunities arc doing all over the West,
again attempt to introduce Mr. Cuth-
011 the half-and-half proposition, but
ely fail to acquaint the public with
mines, recommendations and capabili-
if other applicants or volunteers—one
leant was endorsed by over seventy
ng citizens.   Emmediately they appre-
such backstairs methods will not be
litted, liko sulky schoolgirls they ex-
n:—"If our man cannot play in this
, nobody else shall;   we'll play by
slves;   we won't have a stranger in
EDITORIAL
our back-yard." The result is to place
nominal responsibility on the shoulders
of a man who already has his hands full
in managing a daily newspaper—enough
for any one man to do successfully. In
the Times (Victoria) of May 9th, an interview with Mr. Herbert Cuthbert is
published under the caption of "Cuthbert
on the Petition"; a very evident attempt
to whitewash the clique, after the damaging effect of the Eeal Estate petition.
The whole interview is misleading from
start to finish. The diatribe commences
with a denial by Mr. Cuthbert that he
applied for or was offered the secretaryship. The reporter forgot the press reports of the previous meeting whereat—
quoting from the Colonist—"they were of
opinion that Mr. Cuthbert's offer, made
on the understanding that he should be
permitted to attend to his private affairs
while not occupied with those of The Association, was the only one open to consideration." As this report was published on the 5th and not contradicted
until after the Eeal Estate men's petition,
it may reasonably be assumed that it was
correct. The balance of the interview is
an attempt to throw mud at the real estate firms, by means of an odious comparison of donations; implying that they
had little right to criticise the management of The Association's funds. A glance
at the petition is sufficient to show that
the petitioners confined themselves entirely to the $4,000 donated by the municipality—a protest which they, as taxpayers,
had every right to make. A protest it
should have been obvious would surely
be made. A protest which the appointment of Mr. Nelson is bound to revive at
an early date. It is a pity that the good
intentions of, resigning, at the meeting-
held on May 8th, were not carried out.
This would have been far more straightforward than making an empty threat
through the friendly columns of the Times.
With a new board and a new secretary,
new life would have been infused into the
dust and ashes of The Association; as
the matter stands at present, the confidence
of the public has been lost, and the affairs of the Association entrusted to those
who have destroyed that confidence.
What the Managing Diree-
Experientia tor of the Colonist does not
Docet know about the law of libel,
and what his Counsel does
not know about framing criminal indictments would fill a volume—indeed many
volumes. Now that the former has
passed through the ordeal of the Supreme
Court in an action for libel, he will be
able to sympathise with the Manager of
The Week who had a similar experience
more than a year ago, except that he was
on the opposite side of the case. It would
be unkind, and is probably unnecessary
to dwell on the details of the case, the
simple facts are that in one of his impulsive moments the Managing Director of
the Colonist entered an action for criminal libel against Phil Smith for a squib
published in a campaign sheet at the time
of the last Municipal Election. The squib
alleged that the Managing Director's zeal
tor the public interest in advocating in the
pages of the Colonist the purchase of the
Esquimalt Waterworks Co.'s holdings by
the City was not inspired purely by philanthropic and disinterested motives, and
that in reality he stood to make a large
rake-off if the deal went through. The
.Managing Director considered this state
ment libellous, and was probably so advised
by his Counsel, but as the Chief Justice
very emphatically declared, the statement
contained no inuendo, was distinctly not
libellous, the prima facie meaning did not
necessarily involve any unfavourable interpretation, and that to strain it to a secondary meaning in order to find some foundation for an action was not permissible.
After the case came into Court, it took
Mr. Higgins about thirty seconds to discover that if he ever had a chance of bringing it to a hearing he lost it by defective
drawing of the indictment. There were
other statements not included in the alleged libel, but contained in another portion of the paper, which might or might
not have strengthened the case, but the
Chief Justice pointed out that the time
for amending the indictment had passed,
and that the only mode of procedure now
open was to commence "de novo" in the
Police Court on a new indictment. Thus
ends what would undoubtedly have been
an amusing case and the matter may well
be buried amid the limbo of election
corpses which should never have been
resurrected. It would, however, be a pity
to lose sight of the sententious utterances
of the Chief Justice, in his somewhat animated debate with Mr. Higgins. When
thc latter found himself floundering with
ii hopeless case and a faulty indictment,
he plunged frightfully, quoting case after
case which as the Chief Justice persistently pointed out had no bearing on the
matter. Some years ago an English writer
compared Chief Justice Hunter to the
great Master of the Eolls, Jessel, and the
resemblance was never more obvious than
on Thursday last when he smilingly parried the bludgeonlike blows of Mr. Higgins, turning them aside with the deftest
repartee It is a pity that his many "bon
mots" should not be recorded, they form
a lucid exposition of the law of libel with
a humourous aside on the folly of wearing a thin skin. The whole episode which
lasted less than an hour was a most interesting interlude in the sordid work of trying and sentencing footpads and vagrants.
The sequel illustrates once more the almost
boundless privilege of the press, the folly
of taking serious notice of election squibs,
and above all the inadvisability of assuming control of a newspaper for purely
philanthropic purposes; it is a hard role
to live up to.
The criticism of The Week
A Juggler 011 the degrading character
With Words. 0f much of the matter published iu the Victoria Times
has been amply justified by the occurences
of the present week. On Wednesday the
Grand Jury made a presentment with direct reference to the Times report of the
Garesche-Carter case, and their action was
endorsed by the Court. Today The Week
is in receipt of a letter from a well known
public man in Vancouver, which appears
in the correspondence column and will
repay perusal. The writer bears witness to the fact that boys and girls were
seeking for copies of the objectionable reports which appeared in the Times. If the
expert Avord juggler who put up such a
specious defence in the editorial columns
of that paper on Thursday can derive any
satisfaction from his own statement of the
case, in view of the facts set forth in the
Vancouver letter, he must be an even more
extraordinary individual than his most
merciless critics would make out. No
amount of special pleading can alter the

fact that with respect to this particular
case the Times published salacious reports calculated to deprave youth, at any
rate. That such reports were condemned
by the Grand Jury and the Supreme Court
of British Columbia. Leaving ont all side
issues, there are few parents who will
agree with the sapient Editor of the Times
when he defends his action on the ground
that children will learn impurity in any
case and they may as well learn it from
the newspaper as not. It is difficult to
believe that any one man would seriously
put forward such an argument. That this
is no straining of the position taken up
through the editorial is made perfectly
clear by the following quotation: 'The
belief of the Grand Jury that these facts
may be read in the home where purity is
respected, is, we submit, based on the fala-
cious idea that the home is a monastery
or a convent into which no echo of the
outside world permeates excepting through
the printed page. * * * AVe are not
of those who believe youth should not be
forearmed for the work of life by a knowledge of the actual dangers which lurk in its
pathway." If the Editor really means
this he has rendered a valuable service
to his readers by making it clear. Parents
who think tlieir children will hear quite
enough of what is objectionable without
the special purveying of the Victoria
Times, will hereafter govern themselves
accordingly.
Caught
Napping.
It  is not often  that  the
Vancouver News-Advertiser
is wrong in its facts, but
for once the Nestor of Coast
Journalism has been caught napping.   In
an editorial comment dealing with the
election recently held in Wolverhampton
the writer comments upon the surprising
reduction in the Liberal majority, and
goes on to remark that the constituency
has always been a stronghold of Liberalism, having been represented for many
years by the redoubtable Henry Labou-
chere.   As a matter of fact the writer has-
evidently confused Wolverhampton with
Northampton, the latter has been represented by Mr. Labouchere since the days
of Bradlaugh, but he was never even a
candidate in any division of Wolverhampton.    The particular constituency under
discussion, East Wolverhampton, has had
no representative in Parliament except
Sir Henry Fowler.   Prior to the division
of Wolverhampton into three constituencies— East, West and South—it was represented for some years by Charles Pelham  Villiors,   the  great   reformer,   and
Henry Fowler.    When the division took
place Mr. Villiers selected Wolverhampton South, Mr. Plowden was returned for
Wolverhampton West, and Air. Fowler for
Wolverhampton East.   Mr. G. E. Thome,
who now enters Parliament for the first
time  has   resided   in   Wolverhampton  a
quarter of a century.   He was as a young
man Organizing Secretary for several of
Mr. Gladstone's campaigns, is a successful
lawyer, and stands very high in the community,   lie has twice unsuccessfully contested Wolverhampton South.   The division for which  hc has now been elected
includes part of the City and the adjoining towns of Willenhall, Wednestield and
Heath Town.    The voters are all of tho
working class, aud there is a very large
Irish  vote,   probably now   reaching  two
thousand.   The result would indicate that
here as in Manchester, the Irish vote went
for the  Unionist candidate.    When the
whole parliamentary  history of Wolverhampton    is    taken    into   account*,    Mr.
Thome's narrow escape from defeat must
he regarded as a truly remarkable success
for the Unionist party. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1908.

At The Street   *}
An admirer of The Week has
called my attention to the fact that
some daily papers, and one at least
published not a thousand miles from
Victoria, are in the habit of concocting correspondence in their own office and inserting it as letters in the
usual column. On carefully re-reading a letter which appeared in this
particular paper on Tuesday last, I
have come to the conclusion that I
must have been pretty dense or I
should have discovered at the first
reading, its resemblance to the usual
editorial style. I suppose the trick
is simply a trick of the trade, and
defensible on the ground of custom,
but it does not increase my respect
for the editor who cither connives
at it, or so clumsily perpetrates it
that the car-marks are conspicuous.
1 notice that the Victoria Amateur
Dramatic Society proposes to repeat
the Mikado on Friday night, I pen
this note on Wednesday. Far be it
from me to raise any objection to
the repitition, but I do want to offer
a mild protest against the form of
advertisement, which announces that
the charge for admission will be
merely "nominal," and that thc proceeds will be devoted to charitable
purposes. As a matter of fact the
charge is from $1.00 down, the original charge being $1.50. Having
seen the performance 1 should hardly consider this "nominal," and without being too severe, would have
liked to suggest to the Committee
if there were time, that "the punishment would fit the crime" much more
exactly if the charge had been 50c
and 25c, even then it would be far
from nominal. Seriously, why does
not some experienced hand at this
business tell the Victoria Amateur
Dramatic Society that the only way
to fill a theatre at amateur performances is to charge popular prices, and
further that more money would be
made by crowding the house at "two
bits" than by endeavouring to maintain a scale of charges so altogether
out of proportion to the merits of
the performance. 1 shall be surprised if the proceeds pay the rent of
the theatre.
Last week end I strolled out to
watch the golf championships at Oak
Bay, and although I could never work
up any enthusiasm on my own account for the game, I was fain to
admit that under certain circumstances its attractions might well
prove irresistible. Given conditions
as they were at Oak Bay and any
man might fairly be excused for advocating golf—glorious weather, beautiful scenery, links in splendid condition, and a large concourse of enthusiasts of both sexes bent on enjoying the game and on dispensing
hospitality.
in connection with the championships, my congratulations are hereby tendered to Mrs. Langley, for
the consistent form she displayed
throughout, and for thc brilliant concluding game which secured for her
tiie championship. Congratulations
arc also due to Mr. Gillespie for the
excellent run he gave Mr. Munn of
Seattle, who finally won out in the
men's championship. Mr. Gillespie
only needs a little more confidence
to become a champion; hc has
strength and reach, and plays with
good judgment. I greatly regret that
the popular veteran Harvey Coombe,
did not win out. By common consent
he was far below his usual form, and
I am of those who believe that hc
will yet retrieve his position. Not a
word can be urged against Mr.
Munn's victory, hc played steadily
throughout, and at times brilliantly,
and looked like a winner from the
lirst day. The meet was a thoroughly successful one, and the .arrangements reflected credit on all concerned.
In common with hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Victorians, I rejoice  to  hear  that  at last  thc  Wil-

W. BLAKEMORE..Manager and Editor
On Growing
Old Gracefully.
Various devices have been suggested for dealing with the "genus homo"
when thc age of usefulness is past
The subject is beset with difficulties.
Foremost is that of arriving at any
common agreement whereby the age
limit of usefulness may be defined.
Of course in using the term "common" I mean to include the person
most interested in the decision, and
his horizon is a constantly receding
one. The position reminds me of a
story T heard many years ago. A
young girl with more curiosity than
discretion in her anxiety to solve a
decidedly interesting problem sought
her mother with the enquiry as to
the greatest age at which the female
heart could be penetrated by Cupid's
dart. Her mother blushingly referred her to Granny who was rapidly approaching thc allotted span of
human life. Granny adjusting her
spectacles smiling suggested that it
was such a knotty problem that someone older should be asked, and so
Miss Curiosity obtained no satisfaction.
There may be a very general consensus of opinion that if Dr. Osier's
drastic proposal overshot the mark,
his conclusion as to thc age limit may
have been substantially correct, but
there is no likelyhood that thc world
will ever be able to convince the man
of sixty of this. Indeed the records
of human achievement in all departments give the lie to Dr. Osier's conclusions. Apart from mere physical
feats the best work of the world has
been done after sixty, and not a little
of it after seventy. The trouble is
that just as thc community would
make up its mind to chloroform a
man he might come out with a sonnet,
a drama, a treatise or an invention
that would put his assailants to confusion and demonstrate that Jack was
better than his would be master. Under all the circumstances of the case,
it is much safter to deny the proposition that there is such a thing
as old age, or at any rate that it is
not a definite period but a "movable
fixture"—to use an Irishism.
Certain I am that it can be indefin-
ately postponed, and after all it is thc
desire to make a few suggestions in
that direction that led to the inditing
of this column.
Assuming that if one never reaches
old age one must at any rate grow
old, it will be generally conceded that
the art of doing so gracefully should
be regarded as an important achievement. A person of mature years
should form the most delightful companion, and indeed there are not a
few "old boys" who are the best
sports and the most popular beaux.
There is nothing more delightful than
to see a well preserved man of over
sixty taking an interest in the occupations and recreations of youth.
Where nowadays can one find the
zest displayed by the "old boys" who
gather at Lords and discuss cricket,
with an expert knowledge and an enthusiasm which puts the younger
generation to shame? Where will you
find a harder rider to hounds than
many an old country squire well within the shadow of three score years
and ten? Where will you find a more
elegant beau than an erect, ruddy
grey-haired veteran bearing his honors with humility and pride, the cynosure of every eye in the ball room or
the salon. Where again will you find
the vivacity, the wit, the humor which
sets the table in a roar where the old
bucks bear the brunt of conversation? And where the fund of humorous story and side-splitting jokes
which experience sets against what
passes, muster among the younger
generation?
The pessimism of the age has made
an indelible mark upon our young
men. They can neither drink, joke,
nor ride with the men of forty years
ago. They have livers, and some of
them megrims, and in any event care
and anxiety sit too heavy on their
shoulders. The self-made man of today is, with rare exceptions, hard,
self engrossed and unattractive,- but
worst of all he has no resources
within himself, and apart from business speedily mopes and dies.
I was much interested in an article
which recently appeared in Toronto
Saturday Night dealing with one
phase of this subject. The writer was
defending business men in Canada,
and the United States, as is the custom in England, on the ground that
lacking culture and having no hobby,
it would be mere cruelty to animals
to force them to retire, they would
quickly die out for lack of congenial
occupation. No doubt this is true,
but it is a pretty serious admission
for a journalist to make, and it opens
up the whole question of whether
business men in the New World have
learned how to make life worth living.
What is more unlovely than the picture of the late Russell Sage and
scores of others who might be mentioned practically dying in their counting house, and apparently without an
interest but that of adding to their already fabulous wealth? Is the system an improvement on the Old
Country custom under which the object of every business man is to retire when he has accumulated a comfortable competency? But the Old
Countryman starts life with the intention of retiring, and so from his
youth up cultivates his pet hobby
whatever it may be. As a rule it
may be sport, it is often literature, invention, cultivation of various kinds,
stock raising, to say nothing of those
voluntary public services which have
made the English leisured class at
once the most influential and the
most respected in the world.
This arrangement makes an opening for the boys, and lifts them, while
still in their prime, to a position of
responsibility which develops their
manhood, but the effect of the system is much more far reaching. It
enables the elders to grow old gracefully. As the grip on business relaxes,
instead of wandering about aimlessly,
with an ever increasing attraction
drawing them back to the counting
house, they simply develop the higher
faculties which have never been allowed to rust. The social side of life
gets more attention, at that age when
they are best fitted to adorn it. Public affairs claim much of their time,
and countless benevolent and philanthropic institutions are practically administered by men who would otherwise be grubbing at the ledger.
I have said nothing about the
claims of domestic life upon those
who have passed the meridian, but I
have yet to witness a more pleasing
spectacle than the  delightful  camar
aderie which all too rarely exists between childhood and old age. No
one can vie with the sweet tempered
and unsoured veteran in romping with
childhood or counselling with youth,
and it will be a sorry day when the
position of chief adviser is not filled
by the man or woman who has
"grown old gracefully." All this is a
plea for naturalness; for cultivating
both lobes of the brain, for the reservation of a shrine, sacred from the
unhallowed tread of feet which tramp
only in the mart; consecrated to the
worship of some goddess, around
whose memory is woven the true romance, whose worship is never neglected and whose devotees longingly
await release from the captivity of
business cares that they may burn incense day and night before her.

Fair Play Is Man's Play.
Victoria,  14th  May.
Sir,—In your issue of last Saturday you state that several of your
subscribers have complained because
you very justly praised the management of the Colonist for refraining
from publishing the disgusting details
of the Garesche-Carter case. These
subscribers of yours, permit me to
observe, must be a very queer lot,
and, as another of your subscribers,
I should like to express my very
hearty contempt for them and the
class they represent.
The Colonist did a very fine thing
in using a wise discretion in the sort
of literary food it provided for our
homes, when it omitted the details in
question. The Week, however, did a
much finer thing when it gave due
and public honour to an enemy who
had performed a meritorious act. It
takes a man to do that. The subscribers to whom you refer are evidently not men in any decent sense
of the word.
By the way, it may interest yourself, the Colonist, and the aforesaid
subscribers, to know that the Victoria morning paper lost money by
its creditable reticence in this matter,
as the demand for the issues of the
Victoria Times containing the unsavory particulars was by no means
confined to this city. On the Wednesday following the publication of
thc evidence by the Times—that is,
two days later—I had occasion to be
in Vancouver, and, while waiting for
a friend in the Thomson Stationery
Co.'s bookstore, I counted no less
than eleven people in half an hour,
who came in and asked for the Victoria Times. They were of both
sexes and all ages, from boys and
girls of thirteen or fourteen to men
and women of mature years. They
were all well enough dressed people
—but their faces!
I asked one of the clerks why there
was so great a demand for a Victoria
paper   in   a  Vancouver   bookstore.
"Oh," he replied, "it's that Garesche
case, you know. The Times has the
only full report of it, and they say
its the hottest stuff for a long time.
The boys and girls have been in after
it all day. We could have sold hundreds of copies if we had had any.''
Truly, the Victoria Times is doing
a great and noble work in the cause
of purity and decency—I don't think.
VICTORIAN.
LITERARY NOTES.
"What's the matter?" asked the proprietor of the book store, seeing all
the clerks hurrying toward the front.
"There's a lady there who wants
to buy a volume of poems," the bookkeeper called back as he hurried forward to have a look at her.

Comment.
A big disappointment was in store
r the lovers of baseball who attend-
the opening game at Oak Bay
t Saturday when the local repre-
ntatives were badly beaten. It was
t only the spectators who were up
ainst it, but the management of the
b is in the same fix. The manage-
ent had everything ready for the
game but it is an old saying that
e "best laid plans of mice and men
ng aft aglee" and such was the case
st week. There are very few who
entirely conversant with the
uses which lead up to the result
d there are many who are already
sparaging the efforts of those who
e endeavouring to put a good team
the field, but if they were acquaint-
with the facts they would be boost-
g harder for the club instead of
locking. To lay the blame to any
man is to name Wm. Black-
urne, who until Saturday was a
ong favorite with everyone who has
any way been connected with the
b. It is not generally known that
: present management undertook to
ect the affairs of the club almost
ely to give Victorians an oppor-
lity to see their popular pitcher in
ion; he was depended on to do the
ist of the pitching but made on
:ra effort to get in condition and it
s only on the Thursday evening
or to the game that he refused to
ch. Even then it was decided that
should play first, but owing to
i condition on Friday the club was
in disappointed. On Friday morn-
Plummer was dispatched to Se-
e in search of a pitcher. He ar-
ed in the Sound city during the
ternoon and was not successful in
nding any of those whom he went
after and it was not until 11 p.m. that
he secured Lewis, who refused to
come to Victoria without his catcher.
Realizing that he had to secure some
one, Plummer did the best he could
under the conditions and agreed to
take the two. Unfortunately he was
unable to complete arrangements in
time to catch the night boat. Along
with Kelly and Lewis he did not
reach Victoria until Saturday at 2.10
p.m. and was hustled straight to the
grounds without having lunch. These
are the conditions under which the
team played and to any person who
understands the game it is not to be
wondered at that the game was so
poor. The committee of management
however, is not downcast and despite
the fact that they are in the hole to
quite an extent they intend to go
through, and it is to be hoped that
the people of Victoria will come to
their assistance and patronize tho
games. Several changes have already
been made' in the team and when it
is again seen in action it will include
Jack Rithet and B. Schwengers, both
of whom will strengthen the line-up
materially. The next match will be
played on the 23rd inst., when the
University of Washington will be the
opposing team, and a good game is
anticipated.
there would have been no quitting
such as occurred. In this connection
I am informed by the management
of the club that while Brady and
Merryfield were tried out before being signed up, it was clone for the
protection of the public and it was
the universal opinion of those who
witnessed the match that they were
evenly matched, the coon making a
much better showing than he did the
night of the fight. The club is now
arranging for its second match which
will take place in the Assembly rooms
on the night of May 25th, when Merryfield will try conclusions with Kid
Foley of Nanaimo. This should
prove an interesting contest and will
no doubt attract a large crowd. It
is the intention of the club to give
the people of Victoria good clean exhibitions of boxing and wrestling and
owing to the increase in popularity
the club has had to secure larger
quarters. The Assembly Rooms have
been secured until September when i.
is expected that all necessary arrangements will be ready for a new hall.
Colour Photography.
The management committee of the
Provincial Athletic Association has
adopted a stringent rule in connection with any glove contest that they
may in the future present to the
public and it is one that will appeal
to all lovers of good sport. The
ruling of the club is to the effect that
the contestant who quits or in other
words is afraid to continue will not
receive any portion of the gate, his
share going to some charitable institution of the city, and it is left to
the referee to decide the question. If
this rule had been in force at the
time   of   the   Merryfield-Brady   fight
The craze of the moment in the
artistic world is "colour photography"; but perhaps I had better
begin my story at the beginning,
which takes me. back to a Friday
evening a fortnight ago when I was
favoured by being permitted to attend a private meeting of the Victoria Photographic Society. Who
knows that there is such an institution? Not the man in the street I'll
be bound and yet it flourishes in our
midst, a coterie of devotees to the
camera, who keep alive the worship
of the "Black Art."
Of course I do not use this phrase
in the ordinary and invidious sense,
but as contrasting the work of the
camera with that of the brush. However, hereafter  even  in  that connec
tion the phrase would be inept, because photography is no longer a
question of light and shade but of
light and shade plus colour.
I was inducted into the mysteries
of colour photography at the session
referred to by my good friend, Mr.
A. V. Kenah, who is an experienced
and accomplished photographer. He
read a paper on the subject which was
mainly a comparison of the various
methods by which coloured photographs can be produced with special
reference to the recently discovered
Lumiere process.
Into the intricacies and complexities of the various methods I dare
not enter, as a layman I should be
tripped up from the start, but for
the non-expert reader I may say that
thc production of the colouring is due
to a thorough knowledge of the
spectrum, and a careful study of the
laws which govern thc reflection of
natural colours.
The first method adopted was the
use of a camera plate with ruled or
rather engraved lines of many hundreds to the inch. This was followed by a substitute in the ruling of
parallel lines with colours, and the
climax was reached when Lumiere
substituted tiny dots of colours which
are smeared on the camera plate in
an emulsion. The method of taking
and developing is precisely similar
to that resorted to in ordinary photography, the only difference being in
the chemicals used for developing.
Mr. Kenah exhibited one or two
exquisite specimens of his work, and
I have seen others since. Colour
photography is now a "fait accompli,"
and it will not be long before we shall
see specimens for sale, but its usefulness is limited by the fact that
the photograph can only be produced
on glass, whether it will ever be
printed remains to be seen.
CAMERA.
Empress Theatre.
An especial feature is provided for
the next week's programme in the
pictures of "Ben Hur." This magnificent story of General Len Wallace is familiar to everyone and these
pictures of it are splendid and will
be of interest to old and young.
"Wooing and Wedding of a Coon"
is a colored film, comic in its nature
and laugh-provoking in the extreme.
The "Despatch Rider" is a melodramatic picture of great interest,
the central figure being a daring
young girl.
The musical end of the programme
will bc well handled by Mrs. Joseph.
This is a programme of high class and
one that none should fail to see.
The children's matinee will be given
on Wednesday and an entire change
of programme on Thursday.
Might Be Either.
Mrs. Baker—My old school friend,
Mrs. Jones, writes me that she is
just beginning to live.
Miss Ann Teck—Widowed or divorced?
The Polyglot Dish.
The Waiter—Awful sorry, sir, but
that's the worst o' bavin' a French
dish prepared by a German cook for
an American customer in a Hungarian restaurant.
Might Be Worse.
"Oh," said young Miss Gusheligh,
"I feel so sorry for Bess Bullion that
I just can't keep from crying whenever I think of her. lt was terrible
—terrible I"
"Goodness me!" replied Miss Fay-
denfast.   "What's the trouble?"
"That Earl she married, you know,
It has been found that hc is an im-
poster. He isn't an earl at all! He
hasn't any title whatever!"
"Dear me I That's too bad. Still
he's a man." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY i6, 1908.
The Lounger.
(Continued from Page Two)
lows car line is to be extended to
Mt. Tolmie. The procuring cause of
this may be gravel, but so long as
the line is constructed and made available for passenger traffic, I care not
how much gravel they haul over it.
Cadboro Bay is one of the most delightful spots in this highly favoured
district; I look forward to the time
when there will be a large boating
and bathing pavilion on the West
shore, and I predict that in years to
come, it will be the popular rendezvous of pleasure seekers. Even now
it is the nearest camping ground
available for any considerable number
and ready access by a car service
would vastly increase its popularity.
Talking of Cadboro Bay reminds
me of the marine road which is to bc
constructed from Oak Bay. I suppose it will be completed in " the
sweet by and by," but progress is
terribly slow and there is very little
yet to show for the Government grant
and the enterprise of the Oak Bay
Council. I wonder if nothing can
be done to expedite matters a little.
At the present time unskilled labour
is both plentiful and cheap. Why
not push it along during the present
season. I know of no work which
would do more to popularize Victoria
than the completion of this splendid
Marine   drive.
There must be in connection with
the office of Inspector of Buildings
or possibly the Engineer's Department some person whose duty it is
to report on the ventilating arrangements of public buildings. I do not
wish to particularize but there are
such buildings in Victoria, where
hundreds of people frequently gather,
in which not the slightest provision
is made for renewing a supply of
fresh air. Unless I am entirely mistaken this is a breach of some bylaw or at any rate building regulations, as well as being a standing
menace to the public health.
Throughout Canada too little attention is paid to ventilation, even
churches are often ill-provided for,
but low-ceiled rooms without any
openings at the top, and only doorways at either end cannot for a moment be considered to comply with
requirements of the law or of com-
con sense. The building inspector
will make no mistake if he make a
special examination and report on
this matter.
I was in the Police Court on Tuesday when the hold-pu case on the
Esquimalt Road was being tried. I
heard the summing up of the Judge,
which, as is always thc case with
Chief Justice Hunter, was perfectly
lucid and to the point. To the amazement of everyone in Court thc Jury
brought in a verdict "Guilty of Theft"
and eliminated any finding which
would hold the prisoner guilty of violence. The final verdict, in the form
in which it was given, was a gross
miscarriage of justice, and one calculated to shake the public confidence in the time-honored system of
Trial by Jury.
Beyond that there is something to
be said of even more serious import.
1 am credibly informed that two
members of the Jury were personal
friends of the prisoner and if so they
should never have been upon the
Jury. I am prompted to ask who is
responsible for such careless drafting of Jurymen, or to put it another
way, why is not the prosecuting
Counsel fully posted with respect to
the names submitted, so that he could
lodge a protest wherever necessary?
There is a screw louse somewhere,
when a prisoner can secure two personal friends on the Jury whicli tries
him.
It is currently reported that thc
City Council is just waking up to thc
fact that a man named "Jones" lives
on Rockland avenue. It is even said
that the Mayor recently asked
"who is 'J0,u*'-S'*''" •■■-' 's likely
to acquire considerable information
about thc gentleman in question between now ancl the end of July.
In Real Life.
He left the farm when but a lad, a
fortune quick to capture.
Ere long a city job he had, and he
was filled with rapture.
He went from 7 plunks to 10, whereat
he proudly married.
But never got a raise again; at 10 per
week he tarried.
And now the farm is up for sale;   it
surely is a pity!
The farmer looks in every mail for
succors from the city.
But nothing comes.   The farm is sold
beneath the Sheriff's hammer.
For  real  life  is  hard and  cold,  not
like the gentle drammer.
The Way to Find Him|
"My wife and I are going to spend
a   few   months   with   her   people   at
Strong's Corners," said the meek little
man, "and I want you to mail your
paper to me "
"Yes," said the clerk, "what's your
name?"
"Well—er—to make sure, I guess
you'd better address it: 'Mary
Strong's Husband, Strong's Corners."
Los Angeles, Cal., has a sleeping
lady who has been in slumber for
six weeks. The rumour that she came
from Philadelphia as a tourist is indignantly denied by the press of the
Quaker City.
When the reaction comes, it will
be freely admitted that all the rich
are not bad and that all the poor are
not good.

The New Grand.
Beyond a doubt the programme at
the New Grand this week is away up
in G. It is hard to decide which is
the cleverest turn, but probably the
palm should be awarded to the Seven
Samois who constitute one of the finest acrobatic and tumbling troupes
ever seen in Victoria. On the
score of merit, Hale and Cqrbin, the
banjoists are easily top notchers, nothing better than the overture from
Stradella has been heard on the banjo,
These two men are artists. Betty
Sholz, violinist, gives an altogether
high class turn, her appearance and
demeanour are distinctly pleasing
whilst her playing is such as is rarely
heard in a vaudeville house. Her
opening selection "The Angels Serenade" was exquisitely played. The
Earl Sisters give a very amusing and
quaint Dutch entr'acte, and Macks
Hart and LaMar a peculiar New England playlet, entitled 'Cynthia's Visit.'1
This turn is quite out of the ordinary,
the part of Cynthia being remarkably
well done, but the real attraction of
the play centres in Lily Dean Hart,
who is worth going a long way to see,
and who dresses and dances most attractively. To wind up, the moving
pictures which illustrate the Runaway Horse, are distinctly the most
amusing which Manager Jameson has
been able to display to his numerous
patrons. Crowded houses and enthusiastic applause testify to the public
appreciation of what in my judgment
and taking it altogether is the best
programme ever put on at this popular house.
Next week's bill will include John
and Bertha Gleason and Fred Hooli-
han in a pot pouri of dance and music
which introduces Bertha Gleason,
holder of the Richard K. Fox medal
as champion lady dancer of the world;
Georgie O'Ramey, a singing, dancing
and character change soubrette who
has .been making a big hit in all
houses on the circuit; the American
newsboys quartette in a playlet entitled "Recollections of Boyhood
Days," introducing good solos and
part songs; Miss Franklyn Gale in a
little dramatic play called "The Seamstress," which is said to be well acted
and of intense interest and in which
Miss Galej an actress oi considerable
power, is ably supported by Brandon
Mitchell; McNish and Penfold in a
singing and talking act; Thos. J.
Price, singing the illustrated song,
"Cheer Up Mary," and good moving
pictures illustrating the predations of
the James Boys in Missouri.
the Seamen's Institute, a keen interest
will be taken in it by the patrons of
this worthy cause.
Wilton Lackaye.
One of the biggest attractions of
the present season at the Victoria
theatre will be the engagement of the
distinguished actor, Wilton Lackaye,
who is to be seen here in a superb
production of Hall Cain's famous play,
"The Bondman," dramatized by the
author from his novel of that name.
It is not often that a dramatic combination of an actor of the standing of
Wilton Lackaye and a play from thc
pen of an author as famous as Hall
Caine is seen, and the result can well
be imagined. Wherever Wilton Lackaye has been seen this season in "The
Bondman," he has met with flattering
receptions and both from an artistic
and financial point, the appearance of
the distinguished player has been a
complete triumph. The company
selected by Manager William A
Brady to support Wilton Lackaye is
a powerful one, and numbers thirty-
five well-known players, while the
scenic production is most elaborate,
the scenery and effects having been
brought to this country direct from
Drury Lane Theatre, where "The
Bondman" han for one year to the
delight of Londoners. The date of
the appearance here of Wilton Lackaye in "The Bondman" at the Victoria Theatre will be on the evening
of Monday, May 18th.

Two excellent comedians, Mclntyre

theatre on Monday night in Klaw &
Erlanger's musical comedy "The Ham

dancing and singing were all excellent, at any rate so far as the chorus
had anything to do, and the comedians kept the house in a roar of
laughter. As a fun maker thc "Ham

all that need be said about it.

What   are   the   most   difficult ships
to conquer?
Hardships.
Many an up-todatc man and
woman of today would think it
a real hardship if they had to
dispense with their daily bottle
of White Rock, the pure, sparkling mineral water that is now
famous the world over. White
Rock is not only fresh, sparkling and delightful to the taste,
hut certified by all leading analysts as being "absolutely
pure."
A MERRY HEART
Saith Shakespeare "Goes all
the day."
Make your heart merry this
summer by making kitchen-
work light.
COOK BY GAS
Banish the work, worry
and dirt of coal or wood
fires. Nothing like a Gas
Range to make glad the
heart of the cook. See the
exceptionally fine values in
our Showrooms.
It is the drink par excellence
for all abstemious motorists
• and "out-doorists." For your
health's sake drink White Rock
all the time, either alone or as
a dilutant for milk, wine or
whisky, etc. If your dealer cannot supply you with a case for
home use, kindly telephone
