NAVAL DEFENCE
"No policy will bo satisfactory to the people of British
Columbia whicii does not include a substantial nnd prompt
contribution and THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FLEET
UNIT ON THE PACIFIC COAST."
The Hero of a Century
UNDER a slate slab in the nave of Westminster Abbey lie the
remains of the greatest hero of a century. The slab bears the
legend in brass lettering "Brought hither by loving hands
over land and sea, hero lie the remains of David Livingstone"; and
by way of epitapli "There are other sheep whicii are not of this fold,
Ihem also must I bring with me." The blood of the Covenanters ran
in the veins of Livingstone and that blood warmed him to a fervent
impulse and an unfaltering desire. It framed the purpose of his lifo,
ivhich was to carry the Bible to the African jungle. The workl needs
no telling; it only needs reminding of the finest romance in the his-
tory of Christian missions and scientific exploration. It can never
forget the self-denial, the devotion, the determination and tlie singleness of purpose of David Livingstone, who, weakened by fever,
emaciated by chills, and even maimed by lions, could not, bo restrained
from the performance of liis self-imposed task. He returned again
and again to tlie miasmas wliieh meant certain death; ho carried no
weapon; he was accompanied by no body-guard; he had only his personal attendants, yet he made not a single enemy and secured tho
respect and the undying affection of the natives with whom he came
into contact. Dis great act of renunciation, when Stanley brought
relief, is even now fresh in the memory of many of us. Europe
had no charms for him, although the door of safety and of ease was
thrown open, he refused to pass through it, and his intrepid rescuer
tad to return and leave the brave missionary to continue his work.
That work, apart from the two-fold character of evangelization and
ixploration, had an ulterior object, which was to open the eyes of
;ho world to the sore of Africa. No man has ever impressed the
vorld more, and if Livingstone had been spared there is little doubt
;hat his cherished dream to end the atrocity of slave exploitation
vould have been realized. It was not the battalion of European
irmies, but the courage mid the unflinching purpose of David Living-
■tcne wliieh Leopold of Belgium really feared, and although the
[rent hero like so many noble men who preceded him, had to lay
lown sn unfinished task, the message of his life had reacbid the ear
if the world and has been tho most potent influence in cheeking an
vil, whieh although not, yet destroyed, cannot much longer sur-
dve. Nothing more fitting could conclude this humble appreciation
if the greatest and noblest of men than to quote his last words on the
ilave traffic: "All I can say in my loneliness is, may Heaven's richest
ilessings come down on everyone, American, English or Turk, who
vill help to heal this open sore of the world."
Mr. Commissioner Bodwell
IT would have boon impossible for the Provincial Government to
have made a better appointment to the important Commissioner-
ship for whicii Mr. E. V. Bodwell, K. C, has been designated
Phe subject of "Better Ternis'' is one not merely of Provincial, but
n some of its aspects of National importance. Its consideration will
nvolve the direct claims of British Columbia and will incidentally
eccssitato a comparison with tlie financial status of the other Prov-
necs under tbe British North America Act.' It is in every sense
f the word a big question.   Ils settlement will result in an award
whicii many millions will be adjudicated upon. It will readjust
he whole question of the contributions of the Province to the Do-
linion Exchequer and incidentally it will bring about a settlement
f a much vexed question which has agitated public opinion in the
'rovince for many years past. It is not to drag this important subject
ito the political arena to say that the possibility of a settlement is
ue to the persistency with which Sir Richard McBride has kept it
the fore-ground. During the previous Federal Administration
e made urgent demands, and when those demands were received
■ith scant courtesy ho promptly withdrew from a position in which
o realized that the Province stood to get, the worst end of the deal,
'olitical opponents said that with the advent of a Conservative
.dniinistration at Ottawa nothing more would be heard of 'Better
'erms." That, is where they counted without their host, Premier
IcBride has been not less insistent with Mr. Borden than he was
'ith Sir AVilfrid Laurier, and the practical result of his efforts was
3en in the appointment of a Commission. The personnel of the
lommission cannot be discussed until it is completed, although there
'ill be nothing but satisfaction at the appointment of Mr. Lash, who
i one of the most eminent barristers in the East and at the same
ime a financier of reputation. The interest of the Province will
entre on Mr. Bodwell, who has resided here for many years, who
s familiar with every detail of thc case, whose pre-eminent position
the Bar added to his recognized ability as one of, if not the lending
barrister of the Province, will inspire the fullest confidence on the
part of the public anil insure the hest presentation of the cuso whicii is
humanly possible. The Week tenders ite heartiest congratulations to
Mr. Bodwell on an appointment not second in importance to any
which the Government has made, and wdiich will be fraught with the
most important results both to the Province ancl to the Commissioner
wdio is charged with its interests.
King George of Greece
THE assassination of King George of Greece in the streets of
Salonica sent a shudder through the civilized world. Approaching his seventieth year, with an unblemished record of
fifty years of kingship, with a high personal character, a kindly
demeanour and always the advocate of a progressive policy, King
George has faithfully served the country which selected him from
among all the young European Princes to rule its affairs. Tt is a
matter for profound gratification that the first fear has been dissipated ami that international complications and possibly a European
war have heen averted by the assurance that the assassin was not a
political envoy, but a degenerate who represented no one but himself
MR. E. V. BODWELL, K.C.
Who will act as Commissioner for British Columbia in the
"Better Terms" Arbitration.
and who apparently shot King Ueorge simply because, he was a king.
From such men no one is safe. If not lunatics, they are degenerates
of a type which renders them irresponsible; they are to be found in
every country and the sad experience of late years would tend to
show thnt they are directed by an inoon!reliable impulse to kill. They
seem to be obsessed with the iden thnl nil kingship nnd nil authority
is antagonistic lo them, nml lo tlieir supposed interests, and so they
kill wihout rhyme or reason. One's first impression is "the pity of
it all"; the pity that a noble, blameless life should be sacrificed fnr
nothing, even without a motive. The second reflection is that the
world mny breathe easily again from tlio very fact that in the taking
nwny of King George wns involved no racial or national antagonism.
Just how kings and presidents can be protected from degenerates is
not an easy problem to solve. Tlieir prominence makes them the
favourite target of unbalanced and irresponsible men. Nothing, not
even the best organized protection, seems lo procure them immunity.
The dnnger of death would appear to be tho penally wliieh ottnehes
to their exalted position.
a Blazing Indiscretion
ST. Patrick's Day wns celebrated on Monday throughout the
world, not only by sons of Erin, bul by thousnnds of their
friends nml well-wishers. It is ns true Ihat everyone loves nn
Irishman ns it is true that everyone loves a lover, and while there is,
and always has been, a wide difference of opinion on the merits of
Home Rule, there is none on the warm-hearted, impulsive, lovcablo
character of the Irishman. Il may hi* that we nre approaching n
settlement of the great question which has kepi Ihe "Distressful
Country" in two hostile camps and wliieh nearly thirty years ago
split ibe Liberal party in England, ll mny bo that Mr. Redmond i-
right in predicting that within a few months Home Rule will be a
"fait accompli," It cannot be denied (bat ibe extravagances, no, to
say vagaries, of sonic of tbe lenders of ibe Unionist parly have greatly
weakened their cause. But whatever may eventuate, it is our affair:
the affair of the people of the British Empire, and more particularly
of tbe British Isles. It is certainly not thc affair of William -1.
Bryan, by Gra f God and President Wilson, Secretary of State
to the United States Government. One has no desire to say a wort!
which would be taken amiss by our excellent friends and neighbours
to the South. Indeed, it is difficult to believe that tliere are a dozen
sober-minded men in the great Republic who would not resent the
impertinent interference of Air. Bryan with a matter in whicli he
had no concern and which he knew was agitating the public life of
a friendly state. A much bigger man than Mr. Bryan made a
similar mistake in the Mansion House a few years ago, and he fell
as low in the estimate of his own countrymen as in that of a friendly
nation which could afford to be tolerant of his vagaries. Whatever
may be thought of Mr. Bryan's reference to Home Rule, it must be
admitted that in his concluding remarks, in wdiich he said that the
victory of Ireland would be a victory for the world and would mark
the end of aristocratic rule, he was guilty of a gratuitous insult to a
system of government with wdiich it would lie unkind to institute
comparisons. In designating his speech ' A blazing indiscretion,"
The Morning Post has voiced the opinion of the British people, and.
let us hope, of the majority of the American. The most charitable
excuse that can bo offered for lir. Bryan's speech is tbat it was delivered on St. Patrick's Day.
Thou Shalt Not Eat
THE Lord's Day Alliance of Canada has succeeded in giving a
new commandment to the people, "Thou shalt not eat." The
"deus ex machina" in the matter was Mr. Justice Middleton
of Manitoba, who rendered a decision prohibiting restaurant licensees
from serving eatables on Sundays other than what are usually served
on the table. In gleefully reporting this decision the Moral and
Social Reform Committee, of wdiich Dr. Spencer is Chairman, stated
that "this would help materially in lhe solution of the e.il of icecream selling on Sunday." An esteemed correspondent who draws
the attention of The Week to this decision, points out that unless
restaurants supply ice-cream with meals on week-days, they are not
allowed to Jo so on Sundays, and the so-called evil of selling icecream on Sundays would seem to affect principally the working-man,
who has not much chance of being with his children during the week
and likes to take them out on Sunday. The AVeek entirely agrees
wdth its correspondent, but at, the same time would hesitate to believe that the Lord's Day Alliance realizes the restriction imposed
upon the working-man, because it was called into existence for his
special protection and has always based its chief claims to public
support on its tender care for his interests. Perhaps it has reached
the stage at which it knows what is good for him better than he
knows himself; if so, we may reasonably look for a very wide extension of its activity among the details of private life.
Conservative Annual Meeting
ON Monday night the Conservative Association of Vietoria
held its annual meeting. The A. 0. TJ. W. Hall was packed,
the attendance numbering slightly over five hundred. The
interest manifested in the proceedings and tbe enthusiasm with
which all important party matters were discussed speaks well for the
remarkable interest which the party feels in public matters at a time
when the political barometer is' Set Fair" und there is no sign of an
election at hand. The only drawback was the unavoidable absence
of the Premier who has attended these gatherings for ten years, but
who was so busy winding up the affairs of the Government prior to
leaving for the Soutii that for the first time the Association had to
deny itself the pleasure of hearing him. His place was ably filled
by Mr. .11. B. Thomson, the junior Member for Victoria, wdio as
usual delivered a thoughtful, well considered address, charged with
statistics, for Mr. Thomson is nothing if not logical, lie instituted
a comparison between the growth of Victoria nnd Vancouver and
showed that last year while the building increase of the latter was
only five per cent, that of the former was one hundred per cent. He
quoted from the tramway returns, general Irade figures, customs returns ami bank clearings and showed that they all indicated the
same thing. Tbe most astounding of nil was tbe recent estimate of
the population published by the Henderson Directory Company,
showing 07,000, an increase of nearly one hundred per cent since
the census of 1IMI. Ile nlso dealt nt length with the shipping
increase and emphasized Ibe tremendous influence which the opening
of the Panama Canal must have on the Pacific Coast. He urged
Victorians to nwaken to a full realization of what this meant, and
while gratified nl lhe large appropriation for harbour work nnd
breakwater construction, bo contended that what perhaps was wanted
more than anything was the establishment of a ship-building plant
nt Esquimalt. Mr. Thomson's speech was frequently applauded and
created an excellent impression. Apart from this the chief business
of the evening was the adoption of a new Constitution, wbicb had
been prepared by lhe Executive and which was accepted by n unanimous vole. Tin's change of Constitution was rendered necessary by
I be recent adoption of the "primary" system nnd the division of the
cily into wards. Hereafter the officers of the Association will be
eleeled by a Nominating Convention consisting of 250 delegates, SO
from each of the five wards in the city , Complete harmony pre
vailed throughout the meeting which was presided over in an ablft
manner by Mr. Leonard Tail, lhe retiring president of tlu
Association.
Local  Products
IMPORTANT communications have reached The Week -dnco its
last issue dealing wilh lhe subjeel rd' local products: oiw is from
Sir Richard McBride nnd tho other from the Mayor of Victoria.
These gentlemen were asked to give their views on the subject of en-
couraging production nnd purchase of the standard articles required
in n community.   In reply Sir Richard McBride says, "I am a firm Page Two
The WEEK, with which is Incorporated the Week-End.
Victoria, March 22,1913
believer in persons living in a community patronizing home manufactures. For that reason I consider that every person resident in
Vietoria should purchase as far ns possible goods made in this city.
We are all in favour of building up a strong settled community,
and one of tbe best means of doing this is by patronizing home industries. This will circulate money among our own people, give
employment to working-men and develop Canadian industries. What
is generally culled the mail-order system is not calculated to benefit
the people living in Victoria, but is n positive drawback. There is
such n thing as lucid patriotism and that is u thing whicli every citizen should have. It menus the good of his own lucidity and directly
or indirectly benefits all who live within the city." The Mayor in
his reply snys. "1 am glad to see that in a recent issue you have taken
up the question of the encouragement of home productions. It needs
no elaboration on my part of tbe fact tbat in the production of tbe
articles used and consumed lies the only solution of thc permanent
prosperity cither of tho city, the province or the country. 1 certainly
hope llic citizens will find time to turn tlieir attention and energies
to flic furtherance of lliis good object, which you with others have
undertaken in tbe city." The Week hopes tbat these expressions of
opinion from men of such position and influence as the Premier and
the Mayor will have considerable weight with tbe community and
will lend to a revival of public interest in the important subject
discussed.
Carnival   Committee
THE action of the Carnival Committee in appointing an influential sub-committee to superintend the work of collection
is to be commended. It is entirely in line with tlie recommendation of The Week and is bound to be attended with good results.
It is no reflection on the young citizens who bandied the "Campnign
AVeek" to say that such names as those now forming the Collecting
Committee will carry more weight in the community. Messrs. Simon
Leiser, J. .1. Shallcross, George O'Kcll and Herbert Cuthbert* aro
household names in Victoria; they have a large stake in the city;
they havr been identified witb all our important 'financial projects,
and if thc people want n Cnrnivnl, they will now get it, but, whether
it will bc a Carnival such as the present importance of Victoria is
entitled to will depend entirely upon the amount collected. In the
opinion of The Week the sum named by the Committee, $50,000, is
altogether too small to do justice to the occasion. The programme
outlined is most comprehensive, touching every branch of sport,
recreation, amusement and entertainment. At the present stage Victoria cannot afford to do anything unless it is done just a little bit
better thnn it hns been done elsewhere. To carry out the programme
the Committee has prepared in nil its detail would require $100,000,
and it would be better either to aim at securing this amount or to
eliminate some of the features decided on. August will soon bo
hero and a great amount of preparatory work is necessary to make
the Carnival n success. There is a large Committee, but so far many
members of the Committee have not shouldered their share of the
work. It is time for them to wake up. The press has given very
liberal support nnd hns placed no limit on the space asked for by the
Publicity Committee. The success of the project will turn upon the
activity of the Finance Committee nnd the response of thc public.
New Court House
T'HE purchase of a site at the corner of Blanchard nnd Collinson Streets for the purpose of erecting a now court-house is
not only gratifying news to litigants and all persons having
business at the Registry Office, but has an important bearing on the
development of that section of the city of which the new building
will form the centre. One of the first results hns naturally been tbo
greater demand for property in this district. Five years ago a
hundred dollars a foot would have been considered a good price for
this identical property and for any in the neighborhood. Today
seven hundred is thc ruling figure with a thousand in the near prospect. The location of the court-house at this point practically determines the abandonment of Langley and Bastion Streets by thc legal
fraternity, and the conversion of the old law quarters into wholesale
warehouses and business premises. The new court-house will stand
upon an imposing site, tbe elevation of whicii will constitute it, a
land-mark and make it conspicuous as one enters tbe harbour. In
point of convenience it will bo near the principal hotels and the
Parliament Buildings. Perhaps some people have been fondly
hoping that the Government would expropriate the whole of the property lying on the nortli side of Superior Street and bounded by
Menzies, Michigan and Government. If tbis bad been done, there
would havo been room for the Law-Courts and the Registry Office
and so all the Administrative Buildings would have been brought
together. There may, however, be some points in favour of tbe site
which has been chosen, and there can be nothing but satisfaction at
thc prospect of a new building which will afford adequate accommodation nnd nt the same time facilitate the more prompt nnd efficient
discharge of the business of tho Lnnd Registry Office.
History Repeats Itself
r I ^ HE MAYOR hns n penchant for figuring in tho role of "Lord
9 High Executioner." Tho office of public hendsmnn has been
-*- a necessity in all stages of civilization, but as fnr ns The
Week can learn, at no time has that grim-visaged officinl been
allowed to wield the nxe without proper officinl authority. This is
where Mayor Alorley abuses tbe privileges of his office. When the
Council says "Swing tho axe," he may do so with all the gusto and
relish which the operation affords him, but when he starts out on his
own account and indulges in indiscriminate axe-swinging before the
warrant has been issued, he is npt to find that neither public opinion
nor official authority will sanction his procedure. It mny be that City
Clerk Dowler should bo dismissed; thnt remains to bc proved. But
if so, there is n right, method in wdiich to bring about bis dismissal,
and the action of the Mayor in suspending him because some person
or persons nt present unknown violated the secrecy of the Stnr Chnin-
ber session, by no menus comports with the dignity nnd fairness
which are supposed to nctunte the conduct of a Chief Magistrate.
The matter is mnde worse, by the flimsy excuses assigned by the
Mayor for his notion. It is almost a waste of time to discuss them,
especially in view of the impending investigation by the Council. If
a gentlemnn of proved ability and the highest personal character, who
has served the city for twenty-three years, half tlie time foi1 the mere
pittance of $100 a month and the other half nt $200 n month, is to
he incontinently "fired" or even suspended for such reasons ns the
Mayor has assigned, then civic management becomes a farce nnd no
self-respecting man will enter the public service. The Council cannot too quickly enquire into the mntter in every detail.   Within n
few weeks of his return to office the Mayor's action hns resulted in
the suspension of the City Clerk, the resignation of the City Solicitor
and tho creation of a feeling of unrest in other departments of tbe
City Hall. Once before, under somewhat similar circumstances, the
Council had to tench the .Mayor n lesson. On thnt occasion it may
be admitted thnt he did tlie right thing in a wrong manner; on this
occasion there will he few to deny that he has not only done the
wrong thing, but done it in the worst possible manner.
Laurel Point Bridge
PROAJ PTNESS hns characterized the attitude of thc (.'ity Conn-
eil in dealing wilh the suggestion of The Week that a Committee should be appointed lo urge the construction of n bridge
from the old Reserve io Laurel Point. Tlie Committee has interviewed the Government anil has been told that "firsl things must
come first," nnd tliat* at present attention is concentrated on the
Johnson Street bridge. With this attitude no objection enn be tnken,
and if, ns the Mayor hns promised, tenders are called for within
ninety dnys for the construction of the latter, it will not; bc long before the wny is clear to urge in the strongest possible manner the
Laurel Point project. Meanwhile, The Week would suggest to the
Committee that it can perform a very valuable service in collecting
information on the engineering aspects of Iho project. When two
citizens like Mr. A. W. McCurdy and Mr. W. J. Sutton favour a
tunnel instead of a bridge, the suggestion is at least entitled lo respectful consideration. The Week is informed on the highest authority
that nn insuperable difficulty to tunnelling is the question of grade,
mid that it would bo quite impossible to use the tunnel without
elevators; if so this is prohibitive. The question of cost might bc a
secondary consideration, but surely not; if it would necessitate
quadrupling the expenditure .However, these nre merely suggestions
and the Committee, if n thoroughly competent one, would have no
difficulty in collecting tbe necessary datn upon which to found n
wise decision.
Secret Sessions
THE suspension of the City Clerk nnd resignation of the City
Solicitor have resulted nt any rate in part from the holding of
secret sessions by thcMnyor and Members of the Council. Whatever the outcome mny be, the circumstances arc sufficiently serious lo
arrest public attention. It is obvious that tlie public service bus
suffered, not for the first time, through the indiscretion of Member**
of tbe Council who are unable to restrain their loquacity. On the
other band the public has little use for Secret Sessions of its representatives. It prefers that its business should be transacted in the
open, and. there nre very fow occasions when a departure from this
salutary rule can bc justified. Au enquiry into the moans by whicli
Tlie Colonist obtained certain information which it published can be
productive of little good. It can only result, even if it does that, in
discovering the member of the Council who "peached," nnd then little
has been established, except that the members themselves are not
unanimous in their approval of Secret Sessions. It has been demon-
started time and again that no session is so secret that a newspaperman
cnmiot ascertain whnt is going on. The sequel in the present instance
would seem to show thnt those who wish to maintain secrecy would be
safer in trusting to the honour of thc reporter than to thnt of some
person or persons unknown, nud this seems now to bo the opinion of
all but three members of the Council.
fair to say that Mr. Sperling and Mr. Goward are fully alive to tbe
requirements of the case and lose no opportunity of pressing them
upon tbe attention of the directorate.
The New Journalism
THE AVEEK lias several times commented on the ethics of
journalism as applied to the publication of false news in one
issue with a view to correcting it in n subsequent issue. The
views expressed in our columns hnve undergone no change nnd if
anything they have been strengthened by recent; developments. Whnt
shnll be snid of tho following method of publishing and then retracting n canard? The skill displayed would seem to bo sufficient to
cope with every circumstance of the kind which could possibly occur,
and will probably become a model for budding editors.
"Tinibiicloo, April I, 1000.—It is rumi ed thnt the Rev. Flcdg
ling Jones, Church missionary to lhe Arabs, yesterday strangled his
wifo and ten children in a fit of ungovernable rage. Thc remains will
bo cremated."
On the following day the paper publishing Ihis interesting des-
pateh has this to sny:
".I RUMOUR DISPOSED OF.
"We are very glad to hnvo n positive nnd officinl assurance from
the Sheikh ul Islam thnt the rumour to which wc yesterday gnve publicity to the effect that thc Rev. Fledgling Jones,'Church'missionary
tn the Arabs, had strangled his wife and len children in a (it of ungovernable rage is without foundation. The remains will not be
cremated,"
_\ Good Regulation
THE improvement in tho buck service of the city since nn
Inspector of Vebielos wns appoiuted hns been very mnrked,
nnd although it is not even yet by nny means perfect, there
is no reason why, if the officer is supported by the authorities, he
should not eventually place the eity service at least on nn equality
with that of other places. The hacks nre cleaner; there nre fewer
oomplnints of over-charging, nnd there is n noticeable improvement iu
the character of the hack-drivers. There is, however,'one very obvious requirement which should be enforced, and that is the display
of the hnckinnii's badge. Hitherto it has been impossible to induce
tho drivers to agree to this, although, if the By-law which is now under consideration and which has pnssed its first rending, becomes
law, tbey will have to do it. There can be no reasonable objection,
and indeed no objection which is not, founded upon nn intention to
impose upon the public. The display of the number on tbe vehicle
hns checked over-chnrgiug, hut the display of the hnckmnn's badgi
will abolish it, and over-charging has been, one of the crying abuse!
of our back service, (liven ihe new By-law, a determined officer
and the proper backing of the authorities, nnd a public hack service
of n creditable character will bc the result.
T
On Their Defence
HE directors of the B. 0 E. R> have recently been on their
defence, nnd the sequel shows how much easier it is to find
fault than to prove one's statements. It must be admitted that
tbe Company has not kept abreast of the requirements of the city;
even tbe management could hardly dispute this statement. But what
is not so readily admitted is that the Company has done all that is
humanly possible and that the only reason they have failed is because tbe city bas doubled its population within two years. It is not
necessary to recapitulate the figures which have been published in tho
daily press on the authority of the management. Tbey demonstrate
an increased expenditure which is simply astonishing. If anyone had
been asked to believe four years ago that the annual expenditure
would be increased to an aggregate of $2,000,000 he would have been
laughed at, but tbis figure has been exceeded, yet the demand is still
for greater expenditure. There aro some things which should be
remedied, the principal one being the over-crowding of cars. Mr.
Goward has given an assurance that twenty-five more cars are on
order. When these arrive if tbe city does not grow at a greater
rate than nt present, tbe pressure will be relieved, but much remains
to be done and the extensive public works under way, together with
others contemplated and already designated should convince the

At the Street Corner
BY THE LOUNGER
IT seems but n few weeks ngo I lin I
I was trying to sny something
appropriate lo Christmas time,
nnd now already we are on the
■verge of Easier. Surely Time lias
provided himself with an airship, and
place of gently "fugiling"
Jlirough the days and months, vol-
lilnnos bis wny towards eternity. Of
l'ourse there is only one phase of
JSaster with which il is suitable for a
('Lounger" to deni, nnd that is
Truster lulls. I look forward to Ibis
■late every year with keen appreciation, knowing Unit 1 shall not be disappointed in my desire to see all Unit
i bizarre and startling, 1 ndmit that
■he subject of Easter hats is hnck-
licycd, but i| is n perennial source of
Interest to nil members of the male
lex, and especially to those who wend
Iheir way through" life in blessed
gleness, and can therefore contem-
Ilnto with equanimity thc enormous
linns whicii have been drugged forth
I'rom the pockets of their less happy
brethren to satisfy the crnze for
I'jasler hats.
This year I have a special interest,
lor I wnnt to see what influence has
Icon wrought in feminine headgear by
he moving-pictures, which detail with
lui'h admirable fidelity the varying
|hanges decreed by fashion in Paris,
constant patron of the moving-
licture theatres, I see at lenst three
limes a week fresh creations in millinery, nnd ench one n degree worse
■han the last. I am torn between
lope and fear as to the effect those
Jiirlures will have produced in our
|al est Victorian models. I love cour-
Igo, nnd therefore I hope to see lion-
learled women walking our streets
Irneath the trophies pictured in the
thus; but I also love beautiful scen-
|ry, and I fear to see our landscape
nrrcd by the extravagances which 1
lave seen surmounting flic grinning
leatures of Ibe mannequins. I sup-
lose that there is really some object
li the portraiture of these monstrous
lesigns in fur nnd feather; but I
loneslly think thnt if tbey nre proved
In have any real effect on the shop-
ling tendencies of onr women, tbe
lowly appointed censor might well
lonsider whether as exerting a bane-
lul influence tbey should uot tw
Ihicctl under his ban.
I Of nil the foolish cries which hnve
'-echoed through the nges that of
Imililuncy" directed ngninst the Boy
Icouts is surely one of the most nb-
lird. It would hnve been well if nil
liose who protest against the Jlove-
lent on the ground that it promotes
lilifarisni, could have been at St.
John's Hall on Herald Slreet last Fri-
liy nnd Saturday when the Boy Scout
Ixhibilion was being held. It would
live been impossible for any fair-
Jinded mnn or womnn fo have seen
lie exhibits and not to have realized
lull the Boy Scout Jloveinont has re-
lilted in training the members in the
_>st possible manner. Their interest
lis been aroused, nnd they hnve been
flowed to develop their talents in
Ihntcver direction they most easily
lirn. JInps, indicating powers of ob-
Irvalion and neatness of hand;
ridges, showing a technical skill, and
I thousand and one things all prov-
that the Boy Scouts lake their
Iriously and live up to (heir mottoes,
lere in evidence. Apart from Ihe per-
lirmances on the platform, which
lore interesting nnd afforded another
Joof of the excellence of flic train-
Ig, there was in the quantity and
lialify of tho exhibits abundant proof
lnt the Boy Scout Movement hns
lied a long-needed want.
1 ^
J There is a form of conceit which
lipears to be harmless enough, but
liich provokes a good deal of un-
Icessnry trouble. I refer to the
libit of giving as an address a house
Ime or the name of a business block,
Jthotit specifying the street nnd
limber. Postmen nnd residents in
■ictoria know, of course, where the
Inhon Block, the Promis Block, the
|iywnrd Building, nnd similnr struc-
^res are, but the stranger within our
lidst, who has n letter dnted from
lose offices, hns no menns of knowing
Ihat street they nre on, or where-
louts on thnt street. It nhvnys
[cms extraordinary lo he stopped on
_„ street nnd to be nsked where n
lell-known building is, but il is very
liturnl, and n lot of trouble would be
viated if office letter-hends had the
required information printed. As lo
Ibe names for private houses—words
fail nie. Names picked up in Japan,
South Africa, aud every corner of the
habitable globe are stuck on lhe gatepost, and thai is considered sufficient
address. We will suppose Ihul there
is n house called "Saratoga" on
RIarichnrd Street; whnt kind of an
address is thai? And yet many people
seem to think such an address is
ample. This is what I consider a distinct form of conceit.
%
We nre very fond of patting ourselves on the back iu Victoria because wc have no slums—at present—
and because there is very little renl
poverty ill the city. Every now and
then striking proof of this is furnished, but never so emphatically, I
ween, as one dny lnst week. I wns
walking up Government Street, and
as f passed the corner of Fort Street
f heard two liltle newsboys talking.
They were not exactly prosperous-
looking citizens, but tbey looked well
fed and happy. All the same I was
a wee bit surprised to hear one sny
to the other, "It's a fright. I got t'o
quit early tonight.   I got to go home
and put on my dress clothes." This
should be proof positive that Victoria
is a healthy city to live in, for people
who in other places are generally supposed to be keeping fhe wolf from the
door by the help of tlieir children's
earnings.
A veritable howl of protest arose
from a certain clnss of citizen ou
Sunday lnst when it was discovered
flint the tobacconists were closed. I
am no Lord's Day Observance advocate myself, and think that it is a
matter whicii every man should decide
for himself, but for the life of me I
cannot see why lhe world should accept the closing of butchers, linkers,
and candle-slick makers on lhe lirst
dny of the week without u murmur
and yet feel aggrieved if tobacconists
liavo the same privilege of Inking n
lioliday wil houl I hereby losing business. It is pure selfishness which
allows one class of shopman to work
on Sunday, and allows another lo
play. I tliink thai news stands, for
papers only, might be open for a
short time in lhe morning, because the
morning paper is n Ihing which enn-
not be bought overnight, but if a mnn
is not uble to get tobacco on Saturday lie is not any more likely fo bc
nbio to buy it on Sunday, and if if is
merely a ense of forgetfulness—well,
he's in the same position as his wife
who hns to remember to buy the Sunday dinner. At the same time I
think thnt fhe closing order should
hnve heen more thoroughly advertised last Saturday. As it wns, it
was only by good luck that the knowledge came to me in time fo avert a
tobacco famine in the palatial residence occupied by
as a painter. The versatility wliieh is
reflected in n rnnge of works which
few living painters could emulate is
displayed in everything which Jlrs.
Hamilton does. Her conversation is
ns varied, ns interesting and as sparkling as the productions of her brush,
and like most people who hnve really
done something wortli while, she is
reserved nnd modest iu her own work.
To visit lhe collection is a treat which
is enhnnced if one if fortunate enough
lo enjoy Ihe chnperonnge of lhe gifted
painter. I hail Ibe exlreine pleasure
ol' sauntering through the salon with
Mrs. Hamilton ns a guide; tlie enjoy-
nieul was doubled, and 1 secured
many til-bits of information which
showed how she is literally wrapped
up iu her work, and how she has been
able lo make it.the object of her life's
devotion without surrendering any of
her womanly charm or forgetting the
claims of duty. It is nol always Ihal
the value of a picture is enhanced by
a knowledge of the painter, but those
who meet JIrs. Hamilton will never be
able to dissociate the recollection of
her personality from ber paintings.

PERSONALITIES
The approach of spring invariably
brings its crop of light reading for
the summer months, and "Poor Dear
Margaret Kirby," by Kathleen Nor-
rie (The JIacmillan Company, $1.50),
will no doubt prove attractive lo the
render who is looking frankly for
amusement. Its stories are, however,
fnr above the standard of the usual
rechauffe volume of magazine fiction,
and, apart from their bright plots and
amusing dialogue, several of them
show a genuine enpneity for delineating character types, nor do they fall
into the pit of morbidity thnt gnpes
for the "analytical" fictionist. The
"Belle" of the last story, "Rising
Water," is a study which will be appreciated by most people who have
ever wrestled with the "home-help"
problem. The pity of it is, though,
that we so seldom really require our
home helps (as in the story) for the
purpose of saving onr lives.

In the prinlshops bnck to Caxtou,
There was one unchanging system,
One slaid set of "pi-ing" letters,
E'en lhe novice never missed 'em.
When the line came out uneven,
Or for some such polent reason,
Then the printer threw the pi line
E'er fhe same in every season—
Th us—" ET AO1N, ETAOIN ETA 01N

This thing happened- through the ages,
Until there arose a martyr
Who withstood Ibe persecution
Ahvays coming to a starter,
lie maintained that every printer
Should be free from hours of labor,
To select n different pi line
From Hint 1 brown in by his neighbor,
To-wit, "ETAOIN ETAOIN ETAOIN

Just lo show his pet contention
He sat down and wrote n sample
Of his new progressive pi line,
Wrote a jumble, brief but ample.
Then the printers of the old school
Hooted loudly nt his notion,
But he argued for his pi line
Wilh the pioneer's devotion.
It  was   this—"SHRDLU   SHRDLU

And a few among lhe printers
Stood    behind    this   new   thought

Vowed to use this brand new pi line
To confuse the gentle reader.
Thus they opened wide a chasm,
And this break became a schism.

SOMETHING THAT YOU NEVER
SAW NOR EVEN HEARD OF!
DON FULLEN, Pete Burns, and
Bob Armstrong nre three young
law graduates of lhe University of
Washington in Seattle, who nre Ibis
week appearing in a clever college
sketch of their own, with musical
interpolations of their own composition, nt the Empress. The young men
arc planning later ou to embark in
the practice of their chosen profession, nnd being talented amateur entertainers, with considerable experience in this line nt college nnd elsewhere, determined to adopt this way
of mnkiug enough money to "buy n
shingle," ns one of Ihem originally
pill it. Boys with energy uud "gumption" enough to go ahead in Ibis
manner lo ensure a good start in
business life seem sure of ultimate
success. The three were discussing
the curious phases of Iheir present
calling wilh a Week representative the
other day. The talk chanced to drift
around fo the acceptability of jokes
and "gags" iu different cities.
"While there aro certain jokes, new
offshoots of the original seven, no
doubt," said Fullen, "which seem to
lake everywhere, we ahvays find Ihat
each city appreciates some more than
others, aud generally different ones
from those which cnuse the most
lnughler in nnother city. For instance, one of our little sallies, involving mince-pie, "went greut" in Vnncouver but only provoked a smile
here, while another bit * of comedy
which failed to disturb Terminal cily
risibles, made a decided hit in Victoria." *
Tbo conversation was being held in
llic boys' dressing-room, during a performance. At Ibis point one of lhe
members of a company which was
presenting n one-act drama came in.
He had a line whicii ran  as follows:
"No, sir, not even for a lot in ."
Here he interpolated   the   name   of
some high-priced local subdivision.
"I suid, 'No, not even for a lot in
Shaughnessy Heights,' " he eom-
plained, "and it didn't make them
laugh at all. What's the matter? It
went great in Vancouver,"
"We were just talking about that
sort of thing," snid Burns. "Shaughnessy Heights is in Vancouver. You
should say to a Victoria audience,
'No, sir. Not even for u lot in Uplands.' Got to hnve different 'stuff'
for different cities."
Tho comedian went out with
thanks; nnd a few moments Inter the
three nnd their friend heard through
I bo stage floor nbove their bends n
rolling Irish reference lo "Uplands,"
followed by n cheerful sound like
waves breaking on n rockboimd coast,
It was applause.
"I told vou," said Fullen.

WHARF STREET VICTORIA, B. C.
THEltK is hardy any subject of nion.' importance lo the
average man nowadays than that of real estate values. For
four or five years Western Canada lias been enjoying a real
estate boom; that it has been overdone iu places goes without saying;
the business lends itself so readily to exaggeration that it would seem
to be impossible to prevent persons with vivid imaginations and
limited scruples from prostituting a good principle to base uses.
This is the only way in whicli one can fairly describe the efflorescence of prosperity in prairie cities whicli have staked and sold subdivisions from tive to ten miles from any existing city, and oftentimes when that eity is at present really a glorified village containing
only one or two thousand people. It has been authoritatively stated
that Saskatoon lots have been sold over an area large enough to establish a city of a million population. It has been stated that Calgary
sub-divisions already sold would accommodate a population of two
millions.  No one can deny that this is land speculation gone mad.
Luckily, British Columbia has been free from any such wild-
catting. Tliere have been a few instances, and only a few, throughout
the Province, where sub-divisions havc outstepped the reasonable
limits of probability, and there have been still fewer instances in
which townsites have.been put on the market without offering a
reasonable probabiliy of a profitable investment.
Perhaps the worst that can be said of some of the latter is that
they are a little beforo their time. Tliere is, however, one thing
whicli investors in British Columbia land should never forget, and
that is that the Province has only just begun to develop; it is in its
earliest infancy, and land values are capable of such appreciation that
a man can hardly make a mistake in buying.
In the case of outlying lands he may have to wait a few years
before realizing the handsome profit he wishes for, but, surely he can
afford to wait with the certainty of turning a moderate investment
into a competency. If one were to begin to cite illustrations the list
would run to many columns; it would be possible to mention specific
instances as far north as Prince Rupert, the Skeena, Fort Fraser,
Fort George, and Tete Jaune Cache, where land originally acquired
by staking or pre-emption at a nominal figure lias brought a fortune
to the lucky owner.
There is no accessible district where land is not rising in value
every year, and there are many inaccessible districts where land can
still be acquired at a nominal price, into which railways will penetrate during the next five or ten years and raise thc values at least
ten-fold.
In addition, there are countless places where townsites will be
established in connection with transportation systems, and the mnn
who is lucky enough to make a hit aud to correctly deduce their
location is assured not merely a fortune, but of an immense fortune.
It is becoming a trite saying, but it is nevertheless perfectly true, that
British Columbia is the Province of Possibilities, and that there is no
other place in the world whicli begins to compare with it as a country
for investment in land.
This brings us to consider land values in the city, and to meet
the querulous complaint that real estate agents have boomed prices
too high and that there will be a reaction. That is not true of Britisli
Columbia, and the reason is obvious. It lies in the undeveloped resources of the Province, and the certainty that their development will
mean not only the enormous enlargement of existing cities but the
establishment of new cities.
The value of a lot in a city depends far more upon what lies behind the city than on what lies in it. A magnificent city created in a
rocky country without minerals, forests or agricultural lands, might
possibly havty some scenic attractions, but it would have no basis for
permanent prosperity, because there would be nothing to create business, except tourist traffic. The greater the resources of the country,
the greater the amount of business which must result from their exploitation.
Given a country where the resources arc unparalleled, we have
a condition in whicli eity land values will also be unparalleled. A
city amid these surroundings will be built up not ouly by the commercial business resulting from the development of the country, but
from the large pay-rolls which must follow.
People and money gravitate to centres, and tlle centre becomes a
city. Wheat made Chicago; steel made Pittsburg, and in the same
way coal, fruit, lumber, fisheries, precious minerals nud manufactures
will conspire to make Vietoria and Vancouver.
Few cities on the American continent havc so many natural products surrounding them; as a rule they depend on one line. Pittsburg, the steel eity of the Continent, hauls its iron ores nearly a thousand miles.. Victoria, if established as the centre of the steel industry,
would huve to haul its coal, ore and flux less than a hundred miles,
iind that by water.
Xone of the great Eastern or Middle State cities find themselves
today with nny extensive forests nenr by; they haul tlieir lumber hundreds, and in some cases, thousnnds of miles. Vietoria is iu the centro
of the largest forests in the world,
Boston, Kow York and thc other great Eastern cities are supplied with fish by the New England Fish Company, which operates
in Britisli Columbia waters and ships its catch four thousand miles.
In all the essentials of city up-building the points'arc in favour of
British Columbia cities, and especially of Victoria and Vancouver.
In view of these possibilities and of thc prosperity already secured by
such partial development as has tnken place, it is impossible to argue
with any show of reason that land values have been unduly exalted.
Today lots in Victoria at current rates are the best investment in
lhe world, and the surest to yield a handsome profit.   They have by
no means reached the stage where one hns to figure closely on the
earning capacity of a lot; there is still a wide margin, and perhaps
the most reassuring feature of Victoria real estate is that among thc
real estate agents and the general public there is a healthy sentiment
in favour of moderation and in opposition to inflated values.
Victoria has always enjoyed a high reputation for commercial
integrity and for conservative business methods. It's dealing with the
leal estate problem has been characterized by the same features, and
in consequence there is no "boom," but there is a steady, constant,
healthy business, with very little reaction and with no .recession in
values.

'"I"' HOSE of our boys who hnve read
-I and gloried in the brave es-
sapades of Drako and Frobisher and
kelson will surely torment their par-
uits until they nre permitted to witless "Our Empire Navy," at unique
ml exclusive series of moving pic-
ures to be exhibited at tlie Victoria
'heatre on Friday, Saturday and
Honday, Mnrch 21st, 22nd nnd 24th,
vith matinees daily.
At great expense the exhibitors
ave secured thousands of feet of
opyrighted film, personally visiting
England, France and Germany lnst
nmrner in order to purchnse just
fhat was required to make up this
luring series of pictures depicting
ife in our navy, life on n training
hip, cruises on British battleships,
eenes of actual naval warfare on sea
nd on land, the entente cordiale bc-
veen France and Britain, and tlie
uch-discussed and so-called "Cer-
an menace." Moving pictures have
Eten been held to blame for the sud-
en incursion into evil paths of im-
ressionable boys who hnve gone
.out emulating the example of west-
•n desperadoes. It will be well for
ie youth of this city if they are al-
iwed to visit this patriotic naval ex-
thc keynote, will be presented by llui
Williams Stock Company nt lho
Princess Theatre the coming week.
Every newspaper and magazine of
wide circulation hns hnd articles on
hypnotism, detailing the gradual subjugation of this wonderful power to
the uses of science, und of the marvelous cures effected through its medium by physicians in cases of drug
users and many classes of criminals;
and yet it is today very little understood. This power in lhe fullest
sense was possessed by the "Mnn of
Mystery.''
As the story is unfolded by the
players one sees how a man who is
well horn, educated, a man about
town, in the social whirl, surrounded
by loving relatives and friends, enn
steep from his high estnte to be the
daring lender of a band of desperate
criminals, controlling not only them,
but relatives nnd friends by this wonderful hypnotic power he possesses,
n power they know nothing of. He
succeeds in keeping his identity a secret until one. Ned Archer, a brilliant
detective, is put on his trail, and he,
by a series of fortunate circumstances
brings a scries of robberies home to
'' The Man of Mystery,'' in his social
France, Germany, Hungary, Italy,
Mexico and Brazil. Its only rival for
international success is '' The Belle of
New York," but the latter piece was
not seen in several of the foreign
countries where "The Prince nf Pilsen" enjoyed success. Under Henry
W. Savage's managerial direction the
stellar revival of "The Prince of Pilsen " will be displayed at the Victoria
Theatre on April 15th,
ONE of the most successful eome-
,ies of recent yenrs, "Tlio Concert, '' will be one of the early attractions at the Victoria Theatre. David
Belasco makes this production and
will send the New York Company
here, headed by Leo Ditrichstein, who
hns the chief role in this comedy.
There will be only one company presenting "The Concert," by the way,
and has been only one since the comedy was first produced and hailed as
n mighty success three sensons ago.
f-^IRIGINALTY is the key-note of
W' the work of the 'Varsity Trio at
the Empress Theatre this week, who
put up n singing, talking and dancing
turn whicli is by no means the usual
hackneyed and ear-marked stuff thnt
usually characterizes such perform-
nnces. The Trio are as good a combination us has been seen in this line
in the locul vaudeville house since
some head-liners who appeared here
at the beginning nf lust fall. Neil McKinley, a monologuist of more than
passing merit, nnd Smith and Gamier,
jugglers extraordinary, aro responsible for two items on the bill whicli
hnve gone down well, while Paddock
& Paddock and Mr. and Mrs. Caul-
licld lill in the remaining features of
n good nil round vaudeville bill.
CARR, Stewart & Raymond nre
three singers who forced the pace
at the Crystal Theatre at the beginning of this week. They were well
backed up by a team of comedy musicians in Wright & Fesenbek, while
literally in the background was a
splendid two reel Him put out by the
Lubin Compnny entitled "The Stolen
Symphony." There seems to be no
inclination on the part of the amusement seeking public to "let up" on
the Crystal, and indeed it is no wonder thnt the house is filled to enpacity
every night, for nowhere else is there
such a show to be seen for the modest
expenditure of one dime.

notineemcnt thai William H. Crane
to be seen here on   next   Monday

newest comedy  drama,   "Thc

0 nf Crane's best undertakings, and
written by Martha Motion, who,
tbo past, provided several  of  his
■est hils.    But special signiiicnnce
aches to the current announcements
it is a fact Hint Mr. Crane is cele-
iting his   fiftieth   year   upon   our
gc nnd under most happy eireiiin-
inces.    His   tour   is   directed   by
aeph Brooks, one of the best known

"Man of Mystery" at Princess
Theatre
HE Man   of   Mystery,"   the
greatest    sensational    mel -
ma of the day with hypnotism as
life Richard Glenwood. The defective
is in love with Richard's sister
Flossie, and her grief is pitiable when
she knows the truth regarding her
brother. Both live with nn uncle, Dr.
Leslie. The finish of the Mnn of Mystery's career of crime is brought
about by a confederate, Kate Burke,
and is one of the greut scenes of
the pluy. The piny hus been the sensational play of the season iu this
yenr of sensation in the theatrical
world.
Miss Page will portray Flossie
Glenwood, with Miss Rice us her foil
in the role of Kate Burke. "The Mnn
of Mystery" will be Mr. Belasco,
witli Mr. Howland in the role of the
detective, Ned Archer. Mr. Bipley
will enuct Noah Alotl, and Byron Al-
denn will hnve the role of Dr. Leslie.
The enst otherwise will be up to the
usual high standard of the Williams
Stock Compuny. The four nets will
be finely staged, and some pretty
gowns will bc in evidence, particularly in flic hall room scene.
T 111*1 prettiest romantic Irish play
ever staged, and without doubt,
the best known, "Kathleen Mnvour-
neen" wns given by the Williums
Slock Company nt the Princess Thenl re this week and never 1ms il beeu
more admirably presented. The special scenery, especially the castle with
ils historic Blarney, nnd the quaint
costumes, added much to the realism
and gave the true Irish atmosphere.
Miss Page, as lhe pretty colleen,
changeable and charming, won new
laurels with Mr. Howland as her lover
Terrence, giving her every opportunity to prnctice her wiles. Mr. Belns-
co won hearty disfavor as the villainous Lord Kavannugh, and Miss
Farnsworth, as his sister Dorothy, by
her haughty bearing and lack of sympathy accentuated the sweetness of
Kathleen.
As long as the English language is
spoken the story of Kathleen Mavour-
neen will never fail to grip the attention and tlie heart strings of audiences, just as the song nnd the poem
are found in nearly all homes, The
pathos of hopeless love and poverty
waging an unequal contest with
wealth and passion was never told in
stronger scenes, nor n happier denouement provided.

NO musicnl product of American
authors is better known universally than "The Prince of Pilsen."

Owing to the short time before publication, on account of Good Friday,
we are compelled to defer a revue of

THE Emmanuel Orchestra, under
the leadership of W. E. Pearce
gave Iheir first concert Monday evening in the schoolroom of Emmanuel
Baptist Church. Especially well received were two Irish songs by Mr.
Dunn, and a duet by Miss Bayliss and
Mr. tewart.
Among the orchestra favorites were
n 'cello solo by Mr. Botten, a violin-
clarinet duet by Miss Smart and Mr.
Fatt, and a "Hound the World" medley by the orchestra, embodying flic
national songs of fifteen different
countries.

The new organ at St. Barnabas'
Church was consecrated on Palm Sunday by the Bishop of Columbia, iu the
presence of a lnrge congregation. The
short service of consecration took
pluce at the beginning of the choral
euchnriat. The organ, which is n
three-manual instrument, was rebuilt
by Abbott & Smith, of Leeds, who
have put iu new tracker action to the
manuals nnd the latest improved
tubular pneumatic action to the
pedals, new tongues to the reed stops,
und added a tremulant stop. The wind
supply is from a two-horse-power
electric motor in a separate building.
A concert will bc held in the Gordon Hend Hall on Thursday, March

Jir. nnd Mrs. A. E. Smith, of this
Cecil city have been spending n few dnys in
tracted hundreds   of   picture   lovers
during the present week.
Among them have been some connoisseurs, whose knowledge of the
technique of the art of painting enables them to go far beyond the mere
appreciation of a good picture. It is
this discriminating, critical inspection whicli is so gratifying to the
artist when it is able to reach a
favourable verdict. The verdict on
Mrs. Hamilton's work could not fail
to be both appreciative and enthusiastic.
The first feature which strikes one
is her versatility. The range of subjects is greater than any which I
know lo have been attempted by a
contemporary painter. Here arc life-
sized portrait studies finished with an
anatomical knowledge and a regard
for external detail whicli iu one or
two instances at any rate suggest a
comparison with J. S. Sargent.
This is especially true of "Maternity," No. 12, a charming study of a
mother ond infant which has been
bung in lhe Paris salon and has been
very highly praised. JIrs. Hamilton
has refused numerous offers of a
lnrge figure for it, but preferred to
retain it for her Western tour.
Another characteristic study of a
similar type is "Reflections," No. 3.
This is n very line painting of an old
lady who in lhe eventide of life retains the stubborn determination and
strength of character which have undoubtedly enabled her to hold her
own throughout a chequered career.
At llic oilier extreme of such pictures is "A Memory of Venice," No.
11, which is distinctly reminiscent nf
Turner's work. The study is all the
more remarkable because Jlrs. Hamilton has not seen any of Turner's pie-
lures.
By a transition whicii would not
appear lo be easy, we come to a really delightful series of landscapes of
whicii Nos. 92, 6B and 93 are excellent

Of Interest to  \Vomen
THE womnn of today, the refined,
educated womnn of leisure cannot expect to be granted the franchise," said a well-known ladies' out-
Jitter to a Week representative the
•other day, "until she learns the
meaning of business honesty, regnrd
for others less fortunate, und the
value of integrity iu her shopping
transactions.
This may seem a strong statement, but it is true, as anyone experienced in (he women's furnishing
business, at least in Victoria, can
testify.
Men Would Not Tolerate It.
What kind of a business man
■would he be considered, who ordered
a. quantity of oflice furniture nnd supplies, used them until hc hnd accomplished some transaction, uud then
sent them buck to the dealer with the
statement that they were unsatisfactory . Such a practice would not be
tolerated for a moment.
Yet many ladies of excellent
standing in this community today,
make it a habit to wear bats, furs, and
other garments out of the store, perhaps to some function for which a
new bit of finery is desired, and then
come in the next morning with the
polite murmur that 'it is not just
what I wanted, I find. SO sorry.'
We get back hats with pin-holes in
the crowns, evening wraps which have
evidently been worn to a party or the
theatre and ure mussed or soiled, and
other goods whicli have been used 'on
ipproval,' mid although lhey are
Inmngeil so us to bc impossible for
snlc ut lhe snme price, the Indies immediately become furious it a suggestion of dishonesty is made.
Such Women Are Thieves.
These women ure thieves. They
have stolen the lime of the girl who so
patiently nud courteously waited ou
them, and who ministered to their
finicky tnslc nt cost of hunting
through shelves und bins to lind just
the shade or texture they 'desired.'
nnd they have stolen from the shop-
owner the difference between the ori-
inal price of his goods nnd the reduced price he is compelled to sell
them for, thanks to the damage done.
Another shortcoming of women
shoppers, those of the supposed better
class, is Iheir fondness for shopping
ns u menus of killing lime in Ihe
afternoons. Instead of shopping curlier in thc dny, lhey do this after ten
or the' matinee, redoubling the volume
of work which strikes the tired employees of the shops ul the most unfortunate hour, nlso helping to crowd
e street cars at capacity load time.
I'he courteous mnn in the car rises
lefcrcntially tn give his seat fo tho
well-dressed woman who has been
dallying away a few hours with her
friends nl fhe counters, not lo mnke

the latter is only too ready to let
loose on her the torrents of a tindery
wrath, even to report her to the malinger, hoping to cause thc girl the loss
of her position."
"Ah, wad some power the giftie gie
us
To sec oursel's ns ithcrs see us."
I ADMIRE very greatly the type of
man that Canada is producing; I
like his strength, bis self-reliance, his
fine spirit of hospitality, but I do not
npprove of the attitude he take up to-
wards the newly-arrived Englishman
and Englishwoman.''
This, says the Montreal Daily Witness, is one of the impressions of the
Dominion that Miss Florence Parbury,
authoress and artist, is taking back
with her to London, after an unusually comprehensive tour of Canada,
comprising nine months of almost constant travel. Miss Parbury, who has
been commissioned by Macmillan and
Company, is about to sail for London
to complete the letterpress and water-
color pictures for a volume giving an
Englishwoman's view of Canndn and
its affairs. Accompanied by guides
nnd camp hands, Miss Parbury bas
wound up her tour with a journey
over the Indian trail from Kamloops
to Edmonton, the journey occupying
n month.
"The Canadian men are fine," she
said, "and the women of the west,
strong and capable, are a credit to
the men. I have been in ball-rooms
filled with laughing, bright-faced women, and one finds that many of the
dancers are grandmothers. You ask
how they keep so young in spirits and
physique, and tbey say: 'Why, its our
Canadian husbands and the way they
look after us.'
"But surely this ridiculing of the
English immigrant is being overdone.
They ridicule his appearance, they
ridicule his accent, and many of the
men who are most severe in this matter are from England themselves originally. I see, too, that even the Englishwoman who comes here is being
assailed. I tliink these charges come
from n misunderstanding of the girls.
Canada says: 'Wc wnnt domestic servants,' und domestic servants answer
Ihal call. Most of these girls are cup-
able domestics, but when they nre
taken out of English establishments,
where their duties have been well-
defined, and the whole running of a
Canadian home is placed on Iheir
hnnds, they doubtless often fuil, and
their employers angrily blame them.
"A lnrge percentage of these young
girls canno! cook, yet it is very often
thc lirst thing they arc required to do
when lhey go into n Canadian situation, and through these misunderstandings they come to be maligned.
Canada should explain that it is capable general servants thnt ure needed,
nml not any girl who has had some
frilling experience in domestic service.

IT is a curious comment on the closeness of comedy to tragedy that the
very names of warriors and battles
are bandied about, years after, in Ibe
world of fashion? Think of lhe horror
mid fear whicli the name of Robespierre once inspired! From the
cupitul of France to the farthest provincial town, Maximilian Robespierre
was a name to turn bravo men into
stammering cowards and to hush
children jtito n while silence. And yd
for the lusl three months it bus been
used in every city of Canada, merely
us the name of n fashionable collar,
with little thought or heed of the
tyrant whose pule fnce rose threateningly nbove the dark folds of his picturesque neckwear, as he condemned
to the guillotine hundreds of his innocent fellow-citizens. Shakespeare's
lines occur to us again as the irony
of life's forms of remembrance is enforced anew;
"Imperious Caesar, deud and turned
to clay,
Might stop n hole to keep flic wind
away."
Garibaldi was a great general in his
day, but the names of his most famous
buttles, Mngentn and Solferino, wcre
straightway snatched up by the world
of fashion nnd given to new colors
which Ihe cunning art of the dyer had
evolved. Verily, fume is an idle thing,
to bc puffed nwny in the,smoke rings
of a cigar or painted in the bow of
the lightest canoe that skims the river
waters.  As Lizette Woodworth Eeese
sings to us:
"Fame is a bugle call
Blown past a crumbling wall;
Battles are clean forgot;
Captains und towns are not,
Sleep shall outlast them all.
Sleep." L. G.

A scarlet shriek thrusts home;
The jig-snws snnp among the plunks,
Plump, plastic, proud,
Where, lush and loud,

Acrid, essential, winged with eyes,
The powdered plummet drops;
The beldame's bonnet drawls and dies.
And, foul or fair,

Amid the malt and hops.
Oh! Anguish of the slaughtered shaft
That skims the sullen looms!
Oh! vaguely vaunted overdraft!

Of twain and twin,

The shapeless secret booms.

A  \fy eekly Review of the Most Important Happenings in the Mining World, With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M. I. M. E. Greenwell Medallist.
EVERYONE concerned with metalliferous mining is interested
in the cyanide process, British Columbia especially so, because it has been employed for many years in the treatment
of our native gold ores. The most extensive use of this system has
been resorted to in the Cobalt district, where the ores are extremely
difficult of treatment, and present many obstacles to the process of
uyanidation. The ores consist of a chemical and mechanical mixture
of silver with iron, sulphur, manganese, nickel, cobalt, arsenic, antimony and mercury. By degrees the cyanide process has become established in thc Cobalt district, and has successfully solved problems
which it has not been called upon to deal with elsewhere.
Tho most remarkable development of the process is at the
Nipissing high grade mill, where a combination of processes has been
successfully applied. The recovery of values is partly by cyanidation
end partly by amalgamation. The ore is a very high grade silver,
running as high as three thousand ounces to tho ton, and the total
recovery effected is said to be 99 per cent, of wdiich, however, i)7 per
cent, is accredited to the amalgamation process, and only 2 per cent
to cyanidation. Even this small percentage, however, is well wortli
saving in ores of such high values.
Three other Cobalt mines are using the cyanide process and from
80 to 85 per cent, of the silver contained in the slime is extracted by
this means. The process is used in combination with air agitation
tanks; steam coils are employed in the tanks to assist solution of the
silver. In addition to the mills already using the cyanide process, a
large number of concentrating plants in operation are producing a
quantity of "tailing," which contains values susceptible to treatment
by cyanide in some form.
In the Porcupine district, where the process has been extensively
used, the principal recovery is gold, which is found in quartz, comparatively clean and presenting no metallurgical difficulties. There
are two mills in this district using cyanidation on a large scale, the
Dome and the Hollinger. At the Dome plate amalgamation is employed to recover the free gold; at the Hollinger it is recovered by
concentration on tables, ami subsequent treatment of the concentrates
by pan amalgamation. One thing has been well determined at the
Hollinger, and that is that amalgamation may be successfully •performed in cyanide solutions with eminently satisfactory results.
In connection with the milling of such ores as arc above referred
to, it may bo interesting to note that while in Canada gravity stamps
appear to be regarded as the only feasible crushing machine, elsewhere the tendency is towards discarding stamps on the grounds of
expense and trouble of operation. Either rolls or Chilean mills, or
a combination of both are becoming popular as a substitute for
stamps, antl even in South Africa, where the heavy stamp finds its
'chief advocates, metallurgists are recommending a change.
Attention has recently been directed to this interesting subject
by Mr. Herbert A. AlcGraw, who read a paper on "The Cyanide
Process in Canada" before the Canadian Alining Institute. Air.
McGraw is a New York mining engineer of wide experience, and if
lie could be induced to study the application of the process to British
Columbia ores, and especially to investigate the reasons of its comparative failure, he would undoubtedly be able to make an important
contribution to the literature of tho subject.
THE total value of the mineral
production of Canada iu 1912
was $133,127,489, according to to the
preliminary statistics, which arc based
upon direct returns from mine and
smelter operators, but subject to final
revision. Compared with the previous
year this production shows an increase ot! $29,900,495, or nearly 29 per
cent. Thc mineral output in 1911,
however, wns somewhat restricted owing to long extended labour disputes
and the largest previous production
was in 1910 compared with which thnt
of 1912 shows an increase of $26,243,-
860, or over 24 per cent. The per
capita production in 1910 wns $14.93,
and this has increased in 1912 to over
$18. This record is a gratifying indication or confirmation of the fact
that the Canadian mineral industry iu
1912 hns had by far the most successful year iu its history.
This progress is ull the more satisfactory because it is evidently due
to a widespread and substantial development of the country's mineral resources. The only now cnmp of importance to contribute largely to Ihe
year's output wns Porcupine, the gold
production of which wns nbout one
and tbrcc-qiinrter million dollars. A
slight scarcity of labour wns reported,
particularly in connection wilh the
asbestos nnd clay working industries.
There were comparatively few labour
disputes to interfere with output, the
principal difficulties being n strike of
conl miners on Vnncouver Island, beginning in September, and n labour
diispute at Porcupine toward the latter pnrt of the yenr. The total conl
and gold production were but slightly
affected thereby.
A substantial increase in price in
most of the metals, which took place
earlv in tbo yenr nnd continued
throughout, had a very important
bearing on the year's operations and
contributed largely to Ihe increased
value of the oui put.
A feature of particular interesl
during the yenr has been the continued and extended development of
ore reserves. The satisfactory results
from these operations, particularly in
the case of the nickel-copper ores of
thc Sudbury district, tlie Porcupine
gold ores ol! Ontario and a number of!
tbe coupper and lead deposits of
British Columbia, point to much
greater annual outputs in the future.
Extension of ore smelting and refining facilities and in a number of cases
special improvements in methods of
practice have also been important factors in the year's operations.
Of the total production in 1912 a
value of $01,177,989, or nearly 40 per.
cent is credited to Ihe metals, nnd
$71,949,500 or 54 per cent to non-
mctallic products. With the exception
of petroleum, every important mineral mined in Cauuda shows nn increased production in 1912, in so far
as vulue is concerned. In the ense of
silver only, is Ihere u decrease in
quantity, und this slightly less thnn
2 per cent, the increase in total value
of silver being due to thc much higher
price obtained for the metal during
Iho year. Among the metals, increases
in quantity oi! output are shown us
follows: pig iron 110.5 per cent.*,
gold 28 per cent; copper 40 per cent,
nnd lend 50 per cent. On account of
the generally higher prices of the
metals tho increases in total vulue of
output considerably exceed the increases in quantity, and are as follows: Silver 12 per cent, nickel 31 per
cent, copper 85 per cent, and load 93
per cent.
Tho most important increases
among non-metallic products are in
conl, gypsum and cement. Coal shows
au increase of 30 per cent in tonnage,
gypsum 11 per cent, nnd cement 20
per cent.
lt is n matter of regret lo have to
report a continued decrease in tho
production of petroleum. The Canadian output of Ibis product a few
years ago wns about 50 per cent of
domestic consumption. At tbe present lime not over 5 per cent of Cnnndn 's consumption of poroleum and
its products is derived from domestic
sources.
The record of production by Provinces shows some slight changes in
Ihe relative importance of the produc
tion of each. The only chnnge in Ihe
order of magnitude of output is Hint
Alberta, the production of wbicb lind
exceeded that of Quebec in 1910, but
fallen below again in 1911, on account
of its restricted conl output, ngnin
takes premier place in 1912. Ontario
is still Ihe largest contributor to the
total, being credited witb 38 per cent,
or $51,023,134; British Columbia
comes second with 22 per cent, or $29,-
555,323; Nova Scotin third witli $18,-
843,324 or 14 per cent; Alberta fourth
with $12,110,9110, or over 9 per cent,
und Quebec fifth with $11,075,082, or
a little under 9 per cent.
Tt should be remembered in dealing
with these comparisons that Nova
Scotin in the above record is given no
credit on account of the large iron
smelting und steel making industries
nt Sydney, New Glasgow, etc. The
pig iron mode here is entirely from
imported ore, and naturally is not
credited as a Cnnndinu mine output.
The snme remark applies lo n large
percentage of the pig iron production
in Ontario ns well ns to the production of aluminium in Quebec.
There was an increased output in
ench of Ihe provinces iu 1912, the
largest gains being in Alberta and
British Columbia.
In Nova Scotia bolli conl nnd gypsum mining were particularly active,
though a reduced production of gold
is reported. Copper nnd nsbestos mining in Quebec contribute chiefly to tlie
increase iu that province.
Ontnrio had important increases in
nickel nud copper, but more especially
in gold from lhe Porcupine district.
Tbis province hns a largo output of
non-metallic products including cement, clnys, etc. In Alberta coal mining has had a record year, exceeding
in tonnage the British Columbia production. In the latter province thc
principal increase was in copper, with
gold, silver, lead, zinc, coal and structural or building materials as important contributors.
