the Vietoria Times in its merely upon political grounds but in
led by
fdeavor to discredit the McBride
^ministration. The particular office complained of was the fabrica-
|in of false news, and the issuance
a false statement with respect to
|e reception of the Hon. R. F. Green
a public meeting at Salt Spring
lland. Knowing that our informa-
on was correct we were not at all
Irprised to find a letter published in
|ie Times the following day, from
indignant resident, also denying
lie truthfulness of its report in the
try particulars complained of by
lie Week. Whilst publishing this
|tter the Times had no explanation
offer, and tacitly admitted the
|\arge  of fabrication.    On Monday
the present week, D. W. Higgins, j
\e editor of the Vancouver World, j
as in Victoria and had a prolonged I
Iterview with the representatives of;
le Times. In the afternoon a sensa-,
bnal article appeared in that publi-j
(tion with a scare heading "runiour-
|g" that    the Lieutenant-Governor
Id expressed his inability to accept
le Hon. R. F. Green as one of his j
reisers, and had demanded his resig-
Ition, or his dismissal from the min-
Jry.    Within two    hours of    this
|itement being published the Lieu-
aant-Governor himself and    every
limber   of   the    executive   within
ach had given it the lie, and the
Inner had gone even further than
Ight have been  expected,  and  de-
Jired that he had not suggested or
fcught of any investigation into the
■ministration   of   the   Lands    and
orks Department; that such inves-
lation had been resolved on by the
leculive without previous reference
himself, and that his first knowl-
ne of their intention was when he
asked    to sign the   minute in
lincil.   This effectually disposes of
latest canard of the journalistic
puis, who for purely political purees, have for the last six months
lected a campaign of lying slander,
I groundless and as base as the one
[t exposed.   Unfortunately Canada
had many illustrations of the
Jiths to which political rancour can
Icend in its effort to discredit and
■eat an opponent, but even the most
lmeless of partisan journals have
Isted on at least some shred of

The Week calls attention to this organised scheme of mis-representation,
a scheme which is abhorrent to all
right minded men, regardless of party. Its continuance is not only a disgrace to journalism, but a reproach
to British Columbia and a menace to
the true interests of public service.

declares that our statements are at
variance with the facts, but he does
not particularise the statements to
which he refers. Having carefully
re-examined the May issue, which
was the one upon which our remarks
were founded, we can only detect one
error, and even on that the statement
of the editor is not perfectly clear.
We accept his word for the fact that
he is not an American but "an out-
and-out Brtish subject." Our other
statements can be verified by anyone
who will take the trouble. The maga-
of "The Latest in Dress" are Hearst
copyright; the only exception to the
general statement we have made is
in the case of two or three short
stories which have no special significance. Having thus skipped over 64
pages, we find on page 81 the tail
end of a Canadian article, which was
commenced on page 14. The balance
of the magazine consists of 35 pages
of advertising, of which 3 are Can-
articles which are produced on this
side of the line, scenic and health resorts, clothing, etc. We must apologise for takng up so much space with
this subject; we have only done so
to justify the claim we made, that
the Keystone Magazine is an American production, introduced into Canada under the cover of a few Canadian advertisements. It is an obvious
attempt to evade the new postal regulation. AVe believe in calling a spade
a spade, and have no objection whatever to the Keystone Magazine, if
it abandons the false flag it is now
flying, and comes out openly as an

We are all familiar with
the old proverb that one
half of the world does
not know how the other half lives;
but that is an easy problem compared
with the solution of how a weekly
paper manages to exist.   The Nelson
Cresman Company of New York have
solved this in a manner which is at
I once ingenious nnd philanthropic, and
! not being selfish they have no desire
i to keep a good thing to themselves.
; They have therefore in a letter under date of June 11th communicated
the specific to The Week, and ns we
are receiving so many evidences of
kindly consideration just    now    we
; think it only right to take our readers into our confidence.   Briefly then
; prosperity is ensured to a weekly pub-
1 lication by inserting an advertisement
j which is to be specially featured iu
! good type, nnd to have a favorable
; position next to reading matter, for
1 thirteen  consecutive  weeks  for   the
magnificent  sum of one dollar and
fifty cents, net.   There is a further
condition attached which in view of
what goes before is purely  trivial;
viz.,  that, two copies of The Week
must be sent regularly to advertiser
and to agent while the advertisement
appears.    .And lest any carelessness
in this regard should spring up we
are notified  in large sized  capitals,
"No paper, no pay."   It will be seen
that this price would allow us something less than twelve cents for ench
insertion, and deducting the value of
the two papers required would leave
11s a little less than two cents.   We
have only to add that the character
of the advertisement is such thnt no
respectnble  journal  would  insert  it
at nny price, but ns it emnnntes from
a publishing    company it is to   be
feared that by some means or other
they will  manage to circulate their
pernicious    rubbish, even if newspapers refuse  to  insert the advertisement at twelve cents net per issue.
This is one of the directions in which
a little judicious suppression would in
no way hamper the freedom of the

The Burden of Good Women.
' We are suffering many things at the
lianas of the Puritans. They have returned to us after years locked away in
the archives of Boston and Marble-
head. Of late a certain section of the
unco' guid in this modern Sodom has
been making incursions into the tortuous alleyways of Art. Result: Excursions and alarums. The soft cheek of
virginity, we are told, is blushing the
blush of a horrid shame, and our youth
is beset by a lion in the way as it frolics
in its innocence through the ambushes
of the Arcade. Horribilis acpectu! A
picture that flaunts its shameless nakedness that those who run may read. A
sweet young thing, certainly, my
friends, with seeming modest downcast
eyes, gentle as the dove, but guileful, I
fear, as the serpent. Terrible, indeed,
the menace of that half-bidden maiden
bosom—at least to those of us in whom
purity rhymes with prurience. Avaunt
Satanasl Well do we see the grimy
sin behind this female Hecuba. Let
us avoid this young female, for in her,
as in all young females, especially when
in puris naturalibus, lie the seed and
the harvest of Beelzebub and his crew.
lion of lhe charms of fan-tan and the

have a more exciting time than ever,
and must gambol as adroitly as he
gambles if he woud escape the soft
impeachment that stalks his agile queue.
If I mistake not, some two or three
years ago it was the National W.C.T.U.
of the United Slates that set the Yankees by the ears over the placing of
Watts' "Love and Life" in an honored
niche in the White House. Of all that
great painter's great productions, I
think that "Love audi Life" is his greatest. This painter of the mystical, the
ennobling allegorical, in that picture
attained a height of interpretative art
which is is given to few artists to reach.
The drooping, shrinking figure, held
and guarded by the oilier strong in a
magnificent strength, is the embodiment
rather of our weakly striving after
higher things than the symbolism of
any earthly, carnal love, protected by
its ordained mate. Here no mind that
had risen above the earth-mind, thinks
of sex, of the woman and the man, but
of incarnated spirits, weakness and
strength, the Alpha and Omega of the
Golden Rule. And yet thc W.C.T.U.—
Oh, well!
The unfortunate possessor and exhibitor of the work of art referred to in
the first paragrapli has been acquitted
by a jury of bis peers of any collusion
with the Powers of Darkness . True,
those peers were men, but fortunately
the "suffragette" has yet to win her
way to the Bench. I am thankful to
say, however, that some good lias been
attained by this perfervor of purity
that merges into vice in the lucrative
advertisement secured by a gentleman
only remarkable for tbe excellence of
his wares, his modest demeanor, and
his very ugly bull-dog.
The City of Evil Night.
Another matter akin to the above.
At last it would appear that Vancouver
is to obtain what, as a large and progressive city, she should have earned
long ago—a night car service. The thin
end of this excellent wedge is already
inserted ,and up to midnight, at least,
the man who is kept by strenuous work
at his office may depend on something
cheaper than a cab to carry him home
to the far West End. In a very short
time, thc all-night service may be obtained if only the clutches of "wife and
mother" are kept clear of the City Hall.
I hope they will he, but I am afraid
they will not. Already there is a murmuring in the nurseries and the drawing-rooms, yea, even in the kitchens,
and it is shrieked that the street railway company and the city fathers are
pandering to the vice of the evil clubman and loose liver, and giving him
nn opportunity to extend his debauches
into the time when "morning doth appear." But as a correspondent very
justly remarked in a contemporary the
other day, it is not the despoiler of
workmen's daughters and reveler in the
wine when it is red who would employ
the chenp 5-cent car. The "owl-car" is
fnr the moth of work and not for the
butterfly of libidinism.       '
Ardent disciples of the immortal
Izaak are numerous in Vancouver, and
the condition of the various streams
and rivers and the state of the fishing
therein are subjects of perpetual interest
to them, lt has been suggested by one
of the most expert knights of the rod
here that tbe C.P.R. should supply a
daily service to the newspapers in connection with this matter, obtaining bulletins from the more noted of the
haunts of the fisherman, so that the
angler whose holidays are few and far
between may not waste his time by going where fishing is poor for the time
being, but may be enabled to head
straight for the pools where the finny
quarry is hungry for the fly. The suggestion is a good one, and it is probable
that the C. P. R. Telegraphs will do its
best in the matter.

The scene in Vancouver's famous
harbor any fine day is a very different
one to what it was some three, or
even two years ago. The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club can now boast a
white flotilla surpassed by no organization of its size, and by few larger ones.
There is a steady increase in the Club
squadron, and finer specimens of the
boat-builder's art are being turned out
each season. Where once an amateur
sailor was content and happy with the
slow, if safe, converted fishing-boat, he
must now "do himself proud" over a
fleet thirty-footer of latest rig, with appointments to match. The Club hopes
to carry off some of the trophies at the
Bellingham regatta next month, and
from the trials taking place weekly its
chances should be good.

The Jockey Club is somewnat annoyed at the assertion published in The
Colonist that there will be no Dominion
Day meeting here this year. The club,
on the contrary, intends to put before
the "fancy" one of the biggest programmes it has ever arranged. For
some occult reason horse-racing has
failed to win the sanction of society—
but it is hoped to overcome the tacit
unpopularity by catering more extensively to what should appeal to refined
tastes. The "gentlemen up" race will
be revived, with a splendid cup as
the prize, and it is intended to
make this, which

-103 papnpas e ui a"ea\e pa>pii} A"[isapotu
ner of our great evening family contemporary :
Salt Spring Meeting.
To the Editor—I was much surprised
to read in your report of the Conservative meeting at Ganges, in your semi-
weekly of June 12th, that "Mr. Green's
remarks were prematurely concluded by
a storm of jeers and hisses." Writing
from an entirely non-partizan point of
view, and in the faith that you do not
wish to seriously misrepresent your
political opponents, I wish to protest
against this slur on the character of an
Islands audience. There was strong j
feeling shown in the audience on the
question of the road-boss and road
work, which was non-political, but the
speakers were treated with the perfect
fairness and courtesy which has always
been shown to speakers of whatever
side at every political meeting I have
ever been to on the Islands, and I have
lived here for many years.
In going into the country to address
the electors at non-election times, the
ministers are following the example of
older countries, and surely it is a good
thing that ministers and members of
parliament should do so from time to
time and keep the people informed on
the affairs of the country and the actions of their respective parties.
You do us on the Islands injustice,
Liberals and Conservatives alike, in giving such an account of our reception to
a public speaker.
R. G. G.
Samuel Island, June 15th, 1906.
Merely this, and nothing more.
Now, The Week, in the words of our
sagacious—and somewhat salacious-
evening contemporary, "would like to
be informed whether the Times was
forced to take action in this matter by
a high authority."
It must have been so. No ordinary
power couldi have forced the Nelson-
Templeman-Laurier organ to thus stultify the pipe-dream of its own reporter
—who was not even present at the
meeting he so dopily described.
The Week and the public are on tiptoe to learn the identity of the strong
hand which could thus lash the Times
into the path of a moderate decency.
Who is this mysterious "R. G. G"?
Where does he get his pull? Why is
the Times afraid of him?' '
It is obvious that R. G. G. must
be a survivor of the days of a generation back, when the name of Canadian
Liberal stood for something approaching a decent life and honest convictions.
But this only deepens the mystery, for
it is long since the honest Liberals retained any control over their party.

The Junior Lacrosse boys are shaping
into very good form, there now being
some five or six clubs in the city. They
practise and play Junior League matches
nearly every night in the week and promise to supply some excellent material
for senior company within the next
year or two. The next great senior
event — the New Westmins'ir—Maple
Leaf match, scheduled for next Saturday, having been cancelled—is the Vancouver—New Westminster game on
July 2nd. The local team and their
supporters are confident of giving the
Royal City men, who consider themselves invincible, as good a drubbing

On Friday lnst, tbe 15th inst., Messrs.
Nelson and Templeman's organ, the
Victoria Times, commenting on the announcement that the Government had
demanded a commission to deal with the
Pendray matter and the "Higgins Soap-
Rubbles,"  remarked  as  follows:
"Now the public would like to be informed whether the Premier was forced
to take action in tbe matter by a high
The Times is always great on "high
authority." It may be remarked, in
passing, that its authorities are as
"high" as some of the thinly-veiled indecencies which have been decorating
its editorial columns ever since the
hermaphrodite member for Rossland
opened the flood-gates of obscenity of
iho Liberal press.
But we digress. Well, on Monday

publication of tbe paragraph just quoted, the following delicious and self-ex-
Rural Wickedness.
The motor car had reached a nice
level stretch of road and the man in
the goggles was preparing for a scorch
when an honest-eyed old farmer stepped from the hillside and held up his
hand. "Reckon you was jes' goin' to*
slip along tidy fast?' 'he observed when
the car came to a standstill.
The motorist gave no denial to the
"What made you ask?" he inquired.
The farmer produced a pair of battered field-glasses. "Clap your eyes to
these 'ere," he remarked, "and look up
that there tree along the road. Happen you'll change your mind."
"Great Scott! A police trap," exclaimed the motorist, as he discerned a
blue-trousered figure perched on a
branch. "Thanks, old friends," and the
clink of coins was heard.
A minute later the car was crawling
past the tree at a sim-mile-an-hour pace,
while the farmer was counting his
wealth and smiling,
"That idea of carting the scarecrow
from the pea-field an' fixin' it into the
tree," he chuckled, woni't so bad."

1O11 Tuesday evening the msuical sea-
in in Victoria was brought to a very
iopitious ending by the Dahl-Reidels-

its musical  reputation it no longer
lists, since the house was sold out long
Itore the performance began, and late
Titers had to be content with the pro-

the popularity of the Arion Club.

is a combined history and geography of
British Columbia, and is the joint production of two ladies who are well
and favorably known in scholastic and
literary circles in this province, and
particularly in Victoria, namely, Miss
Maria Lawson, of the Girls' Central
School, Victoria, a daughter of the
late Mr. Lawson, for many years editor
of the Colonist, and Mrs. Rosalind
Watson Young, M.A., the talented wife
of Dr. H. E. Young, member for Atlin
in the local legislature. The book is
thus that most desirable thing, a work
on British Columbia by British Columbians.
The historical section of the book has
been compiled by Miss Lawson, who
shows a masterly grasp of the three
essentials of historical writing, brevity,
lucidity and accuracy. To such an admirable extent have these three requirements been filled in this instance, that,
while the work under review is most
excellently adapted to its primary object of conveying instruction to the
mind of youth, it forms a most convenient book of reference for the busy man
who may need to verify a fact at short
notice, and lacks the time or opportunity to do so by prolonged research
into documents and records.
Of the geographical section of this
work it may truly be remarked that the
fact of its being compiled by Mrs.
Rosalind Watson Young conveys an immediate assurance that a by no means
easy task has been handled with skill
and accuracy. In the difficult and unusual accomplishment of placing scientific facts before the public in plain
and readable, yet absolutely reliable,
shape, Mrs. Young has long since won
for herself an enviable reputation. Her
contributions to the press on the geographical and mining features of her
husband's large district are familiar to
our readers, and have been of incalculable benefit to the interests of British
Columbia's northern gold-fields.
In letter-press, style and workmanship generally, The History andi Geography of British Columbia" is gotten
up in a manner which at once reflects
credit upon the well-known publishing
firm of W. J. Gage & Co. It
contains no fewer than seventy-six illustrations, as well as eleven maps, of
which latter two are full-pages in colors and one double-page in colors. The
letterpress itself is of a good size, and,
like the maps and illustrations, most
clearly and legibly printed.
The Week is gratified to learn from
Mr. Alexander Robinson, Superintendent of Education, that the Provincial
authorities are so impressed with the
instructive to all concerned. The manoeuvres were carried out with splendid
precision and promptness, clearly evidencing the great efficiency which the
men have attained since their entry into
camp. It is rumored that all men on
the roll of the Fifth Regiment are now
in camp; this is probably due to the
number of corporals' guards seen in
town of late. The worried appearance
of the Corporal of Camp Police is attributed to the large number of men under
his care.
The marked improvement in the appearance of the various companies' lines
is accounted for by the fact that the
most untidy tent in the lines is daily
posted in Regimental orders.
The muster parade is called for noon
on Sunday next. A full turn-out is expected owing to the strenuous times
now existing in the camp, andl the
promptness with which the men absent
without leave have found themselves in
the guard tent. It is rumored, indeed,
that an additional gaol had to be erected to cope with tlie large number of
unfortunates under Corporal Wheeler's
A word must be said with regard to
the firing practice with the 6-inch guns
last Wednesday night. This showed
the best result attained up to the present. There were 140 rounds fired, and
a very large percentage of hits was recorded ; it is sufficient to say that every
gun-layer qualified. This is as satisfactory a piece of work as can be hoped
for, and acts as a great encouragement
to officers and men alike.
Last night No. 2 Company were successful in giving a smoking concert,
which was unanimously voted a big
success; the committe is to be congratulated on the excellence of the programme.
The event of the week in military
circles was the annual dinner of the
Vancouver Veterans' Association, on
Monday night, which was graced by the
presence of many of the officers of the
Duke of Connaught's Own, anxious to

spurs in many a hard-fought field. The

It is essential for students of com
merce anil finance to appreciate that
although currency, money, capital and
wealth are allied and connected^ yet at
the same time they are distinct forces
and must be studied tinder separate
headings before their relative bearing
on each other can be fully grasped and
All currency is not money, capital or
wealth; all money is not capital or
wealth; all wealth is not capital, neither is it always money or currency.
Currency is "the power of passing
from hand lo hand," and is generally
and somewhat loosely applied to tokens
in the shape of money or bank notes,
bills, bonds, drafts, and other documents
which are to a greater or less extent
representative of money; the currency
of a community is always largely in
excess of actual money or cpiial. Under natural conditions currency should
expand or contract in accordance wilh
tlie increase or diminution of commercial activity in any communty. Unfortunately currency is not always permitted to expand or contract in accordance with tlie actual necessities of the
community; it is subject to two very
great interferences or dangers which
sooner or later become positive evils
and have disastrous effects on the commercial life of any community permitting such interferences.
The two evils arc artificial expansion and undue restriction; the
former spreads out tiie river of currency
beyond its legitimate powers thereby
weakening them, and in the end causing failure and loss of credit; the latter dams up the life-blood of commerce and prevents it carrying the fertilizing elements of capital and wealth
Into every part of the business com-,
Of the two, artificial expansion
needs no explanation here. Wherever it has been tried its effects
have been so visible that it is thoroughly well understood and in recent years
has been almost eliminated from the
commerce of the Anglo-Saxon race; the
more enthusiastic Latin races occasionally venture along this risky financial
Undue or artificial restrictions on
currency are among the most dangerous I
evils of the present day in the commercial world, because they are inaugurated and manipulated by the few at
the expense of the many; they work
silently and it is frequently years before the result becomes apparent, and
even then the public, which is the sufferer, does not understand this trouble
which secretly carries the wealth of
the community into the coffers of the
individual or corporation.
It has taken years for the public to
discover that combines and trusts are
a danger and fruitful of much evil; if
any one would take the trouble to refer
to the files of the American papers of
ten or fifteen years ago they would find
the vast majority of American people
hailed the formation of trusts with
shouts of joy, subscribed liberally to
their capitalization, and predicted an
era of economy in management resulting
in huge wealth to the people; they entirely lost sight of the fact that they
were deliberately committing commercial
suicide in as much as they were handing over the wealth and currency of the
country into the hands of a few men.
To-day they find themselves almost
slaves to these trust magnates, created
originally by themselves; they entirely
overlooked the fact of these men having the power of putting artificial restrictions on produce, which is wealth
in process of manufacture, and as a
great portion of this wealth afterwards
becomes currency it is evident that the
artificial restrictions sooner or later affect currency also and become a menace
lo the whole community.
But let us give a simple example of
of the effect of artificial restrictions on
currency. Take four men, Brown, Jones,
Smith and Robinson; Brown owes
Jones one dollar; Jones owes Smith one
dollar; Smith owes Robinson one dollar. If Brown had the dollar it would
be paid to Jones; Jones pays Smith,
and Smith pays Robinson and the three
dollars of debt are paid off with the
one dollar of capital which, by the way,
is also an example of currency in being; Brown, however is in the employ
of a corporation who only pay monthly;
it is obvious this artificial restriction
prevents the beneficial effects of currency acting under normal conditions,
as Jones, Smith, and Robinson must
wait until Brown receives his monthly
The above of course is an abstract
example merely to illustrate an artificial restriction on currency, at the
same time it is what is taking place
every day in Victoria and Vancouver
and other Western cities owing to the
fact that the people have not yet grasped the evil which is caused by permitting corporations and other bodies to
place artificial restrictions on currency.
A few months since the wholesale
houses in Victoria instituted a crusade
to shorten the credit system between
themselves and the retailers; the intention was good but <t failed utterly
in its object for lack of knowledge on
this most important subject of currency.
If the wholesalers desired to succeed
in their well-meant intention their first
and obvious duty was to approach the
firms who are the largest employers of
labor in the city and have persuaded
them to change their monthly wage system into a weekly one. In almost every
other part of the civilized world the
folly of this montnly system has not
only been demonstrated but also entirely
abolished. You will never be able to get
down to a cash basis until this reform
is carried out.
To give a further illustration of the
evil results of undue restrictions on currency it is only necessary to cross-examine any of the leading store-keepers
in Victoria and Vancouver; they will
tell you in a moment that about the
dates on which the large corporations
pay their wages they have their best
selling days in the month, and that midway between, business dwindles down
to a minimum, with the result that they
are bound to keep a frequently large
and expensive staff for the busy days
when currency is liberated by the pay-1
ment of wages, such staff more often
then not has to stand around idle on
the slack days in the middle of the
month. One has only to watch the columns of the daily paper to see how far
reaching this evil is; at the beginning
of the month when the majority of the
wages are in the pockets of the people
and immediately following the disbursements by the large corporations you
will  find  that  storekeepers   who   have
the sense to follow these movements of
currency use the opportunity to display
their best advertising, very wisely cutting it down at the times when currency is locked up in the coffers of the
corporations, it being useless to advertise extensively at such times.
We have dealt at considerable length
with this evil because it is in the power
of the people of Victoria and Vancouver
to demand a weekly wage system thereby
permitting currency to flow more freely,
but the public should not be blind to the
fact that in a much wider field banks are
frequently dangerous to the community
owing to the power they have not only
for placing undue crestrictions on cur-
for placing undue restrictions on currency of one community to another in
which their own personal interests are
It is a pity that the science of
political economy, especially the sections which relate to currency, capital
and wealth are not more generally
taught in the schools of British Columbia in order that the rising generation
should fully understand this most important subject which not one man in
fifty grasps to-day. If this were done
trusts and combines would either be
entirely abolished or put on a basis
giving the greatest good to the greatest
number, corporations would not be permitted to put artificial restrictions on
currency, and bankers would be taught
that in addition to the duty of earning dividends for their shareholders they
have a higher duty still, namely, the
welfare of the community in which each
branch  is  situated.

I have on several occasions expressed
my opinion on the subject of "scorching" automobiles, and have been requested to take the matter up again with
special reference to an incident which
occurred in Beacon Hill Park on Sunday last. It was during the afternoon,
when several little children, instead of
being in Sunday school, as all good
children should be, were playing on the
sand heap near the lake. With them
was a handsome collie dog; suddenly,
without warning, an automobile dashed
up at the rate of at least thirty miles
an hour. The chauffeur had the choice
of driving over the pile of sand, in
which case he would have been upset,
or of dashing into the midst of the
children who were at the foot of the
slope. He considerately chose the latter, and steered so accurately that he
missed one little girl by a few inches,
but was successful in impaling the dog.
It was a clever piece of work, and goes
to show the advantage of skilful training. With such experts on the box it
is quite unnecessary for people to move
out of lhe way, or to become excited.
A miss is as good as a mile, and even
if it is a matter of inches, so long as it
is a miss, who cares?
An ear for music is a great gift, and
enables one to appreciate the thousand
and one tones which vibrate on the
summer air. It also develops a taste
for "linked sweetness long drawn out."
Time was when the shriek of a steam
bull or whistle, especially in the small
hours, would awaken me with a start,
and banish sleep from my weary eyelids.
But six months' apprenticeship on
Belleville boulevard has altered all that,
andi has so developed my musical faculties that I can now listen to the siren
which signalizes the approach and departure of the Princess Victoria and the
Indianapolis, for fifteen minutes at a
stretch, without the slightest desire to
fall asleep again; whilst the chronic
cough of the Tees has become a positive pleasure, to be missed and regretted
if it ceases for more than an hour. I
have even begun to enjoy the hiss of
the steam boiler and donkey engine
which decorate the boltievard a little
west of the C.P.R. office. Shying
horses   and   shattered   hacks,   with   an
occasional crippled hackman, are mere
incidents of the campaign, which,
whilst regrettable, do not materially
diminish the zest with which I follow
the performance. It is rumored, and I
have no hesitation in believing the report, that Capt. Troup has received instructions from Mrs. Hayter Reed to
keep all the tugs and steam-boats in
practice, in order that they may be usedi
after the opening of the Empress Hotel
in lieu of an orchestra.
I strolled through the Carnegie Library this week for the first time and
made several discoveries, all of which
startled me a little, and some of which
gratified me; for although a Bohemian
by inclination I ain a Bookman by conviction. There is a fair collection of
classics, but a singiuar omission' in respect of many standard authors. Poetry
is inadequately represented; high class
fiction, ditto; on the other hand there
is a commendable dearth of trashy fiction. The very best authors are being
read to an extent which is gratifying,
and I nearly fainted when I learnt that
works by Meredith and Ruskin were
''out." There is hope for any community which, even to a slight extent, reads
the two greatest modem masters of
English prose. I wish any words of
mine could induce Victorian book-
lovers to read the former's "Richard
Feverel," which I have always considered as second only to the best work of
Thackeray and Scott. I have no desire
to be hypercritical, but the hours of
opening and closing the library are inconvenient, and greatly curtail its usefulness as a public institution.
Some people profess to believe that
Victoria is dull, while others bewail the
decadence of sport. These folk surely
go about with their eyes closed, or they
would never miss the good things which
are offered dlaily in our midst. For instance, on Tuesday morning last I was
passing down Trounce Alley when I
had the pleasure of witnessing a time-
honored form of entertainment dear to
the heart of every old sport. Oh, how
it recalled the cock-fighting and dog-
fighting days of my youth. A Chinaman had a wire cage containing a dozen
rats; another Chinaman had a snapping
little fox-terrier. The spectators formed a ring, with the children (among
whom I noticed a bright little girl of
about eight), in front. A rat was turned loose, the terrier pounced on him,
there was a squeal, a convulsion, and
lhe long-tailed rodent, smeared with
blood, lay on the pavement. One or
two boys, probably gently nurtured,
looked the other way, and the little
girl paled and made her escape as soon
as possible. The entertainment continued until the cage was empty; it furnished lots of excitement and several
qualms. I was informed that the rats,
which were carefully and even tenderly
collected, would figure in pie later in
the day. This is a form of sport which
seems to flourish in the alleys of Victoria, and one which tends to keep alive
the memory of those so-called brutal
displays which an advanced and supersensitive civilization has relegated to
the past, at least that is the opinion of

Der Norwestern is informed from a
reliable source that the German government has sent Dr. Hermann Hucho,
formerly an instructor in agriculture in
the University of Leipzig, to Canada
to study thoroughly the agricultural
conditions of the Dominion. Dr. Hucho
has been attached to the German consulate for Canada, and has recently arrived in Montreal. He has already
spent six years in a similar position
with the German general consulate for
Australia in Sydney; and he will probably remain in Canada for the same
length of time. From Montreal he will
annually perforin extensive journeys to
all parts of the Dominion, especially to
the Northwest.
Mr. James Ross is not likely to return to Canada for some three months
to come. Recently he found it necessary to undergo an operation in a London hospital, and while he is about and
much better, still he does not feel capable of taking up the reins of business
just yet. The chances are that he will
spend the greater portion of the summer cruising on his yacht in European
waters, and it is quite possible that he
may come over in her to this side later

Dear Madge:
For the fortunate few who are able
to follow their own sweet wills to summer seaside resorts, most charming
frocks are being evolved from the finest
of linens and filmy muslins, exquisitely
embroidered. The broderie Anglaise
influence which was so predominant last
season that I wonder we did not resort
to buttonholing our own skins, is obviously upon the wane, a reaction only
to be expected as the natural sequel to
the delirious dictatorship it enjoyed last
A frock which is going to accompany
its owner to the seaside is made wilh
a double skirt, the lower part completed by a severe hem, relieved at intervals
with a conventional ornament, or spray,
embroidered in relief. The upper skirt
is edged with a double row of minute
vandyker, solidly buttonholed at the
edge, whence delicate trails of conventional  embroidery  run  upwards.
I feel sure we shall all vote solidly
by and by for hemstitched effects on
our new cottons and muslins, both plain
and embroidered^ a development for
which, having regard to the destructive
genius of the average Chinese washerman, we may well rejoice.
The sudden heat wave has turned the
thoughts of all to cooler garments, and
to those in search of such I can unhesitatingly recommend linen costumes.
Exquisitely fresh in appearance, this
fabric makes up the smartest costumes
imaginable, suitable not only for ordinary wear, but for all the different outdoor pastimes which claim the attention
of the summer girl.
Linen costumes can be made in over
sixty shades, including white, cream,
biscuit, andl all the fashionable soft-
toned colors of the season.
The independence of attitude which
men can assume towards weather of
any sort impresses itself afresh on one's
envious mind, every time one goes motoring. My last tour, over a windswept, hilltop country, brought the
matter intimately to me, seeing the distressing pranks played with one's locks
by rude east winds, while the mere
man's independent habit of hair, innocent of fringe, nets, toupee, or "transformation," was an object lesson in
freedom and liberty to the carefully-
adijusted women of the party.
A good bit of advice is to consult
Madame Kosche on the question of the
coiffeur, her hair dressing parlors on
Douglas Street are by far the most up-
to-date in the city.
By the way, talking of motors, the
farmers, whose cherished and particular
prerogative is grumbling, are already
looking on the automobile as a deadly
and desolating enemy, because it does
not consume the roots, corn, or hay
which they spend half their lives in
growing. "Where will be the demand
for fodder," they angrily ask, "when
horses disappear?" And Echo answers
with  her usual  elusive "Where?"
"En revanche," the country innkeepers rejoice, and cast up long reckonings
for luncheons, teas, and dinners, which
are liquidated by the rapidly revolving
public. It is thc old story of the survival of the fittest, in fact, and for the
moment the motorist holds the stage.
Speaking of farmers, reminds me of
the two old rustics that I met the other
day on a country road. They were coming to town  to buy new  farm implements,  and  Rube was  advising  Simon
where to purchase them.   "Wal, I reckon there be only one place in town to
get what we want, Simon, and that be
E. G. Prior's store, (hem what had the
big exhibit  at  the Agricultural  show."
The latest production  in gentlemen's
summer   felt   hats   is  to  be   found   at
Chapman's, Vancouver.   It is made in |
charming pearl  grey,    light brown, or i
black. Ibe shape being a sort of fednra i
and  ordinary  sailor.    These  hats  will '
be  found very light in weight, and of \
far greater comfort to the wearer, lhe |
felt yielding to lhe head'.   Nnt withstanding its lightness it serves the dual pur- )
pose of protecting its wearer from the
intense heal  nf the sun, while it possesses a longer life.
It is one of Mr. Punch's jokes nf
some dozen years ago—fnr it could
hardly have been perpetrated in these
present days nf enlightenment, tliat a
lady who remarked In n friend that she
was "going inln town In buy some marquetry "was slartled hy receiving thc
not very apropos commission by way nf
reply, "Are you, dear? Well, would
you mind bringing mc a pound nf tomatoes?" We have learned since then
that there is a difference between mar
keting and marquetry. The enormous
strides in popularizing art which we
have made in the last few years, and
the increased perception of the beautiful in coneclion with furniture of all
sorts, have at least taught us this. But,
judging by the appallingly blatant specimens of marquetry one sometimes sees
it is questionable if some of us know-
even a thing or two about really good
taste in  furniture.
By the way, Weiler's have in stock
some beautiful tables, chairs, cabinets,
etc., that have lately arrived from abroad
and they are quite the most ideal fittings  for artistic drawing rooms.
Smart ladies of fashion are having
their tiaras re-set in the old classic garland shape to go around the head, instead of the crown-shaped diadems of
the past few years. The style is eminently becoming to those with features
'bien entende," but the others without
a profile had better rest content with
their present possessions. However,
jewelled combs are becoming to all, and
Challoner & Mitchell have a most artistic 'collection. Before closing, I
wish to again remind you of the delicious ice cream for sale at the Royal
Dairy on Fort Street. Nothing is more
acceptable during the summer months
than a dish of good ice cream, served at
afternoon tea. I am told that champagne cup is also most refreshing, madle,
of course, with Mumm's Extra Dry.

To the Editor the Week:
Sir—It seems a very long cry from
here to England, but the political change
there has sent this country further back
than anything else could have done.
Everything and everybody is in a state
of unrest; no one except the extreme
Boer trusts the Liberal Government.
The way they have slandered those who
have always worked for British supremacy in South Africa at the general election will be remembered for ever as the
most disgraceful injustice that so-called
Englishmen have'ever perpetrated upon
thic country and the English population.
The cry against the mine owners is
rot; close the mines, or unfairly handicap the capitalists, and South Africa is
lost to the Empire. The slavery cry is
another scandal. Every second man
walking the streets of Johannesburg
would willingly change places with the
Chinese, as far as their treatment in
food, clothing, and discipline is concerned. If the new Constitution is so
formed that the Boers get a majority in
the House, look out for trouble. The
Rand won't be a patch to it. And yet
the people at home won't see the harm
they are doing. They are driving loyal,
gnod men from the Flag every day, but
what can one expect with a man like
Winston Churchill at the Colonial Office. What a frightful disgrace the vote
nrrainst Milner. without dnubt the greatest Pro-Consul Enprland has ever had.
wdio has certainly done more for this
country than any man living, or dead,
not even  excepting Cecil Rhodes.

Grand Forks, June .19.—Nowhere in
the whole of the Kootenay and Yale
Mining Districts is there more activity
being displayed in mining than there is
at the present moment in tlle Boundary.
Several causes have helped to produce
this effect. For years the low grade of
the ore of the principal of the Boundary
producing properties was eyed askance
by the investing public, and the
experiments undertaken so successfully by the Granby Company were
watched with much doubt. Could these
low grade properties be made to pay?
Could they be made to pay with the apparently extravagantly long distances
over which coke fuel had to be hauled?
But thc strides made by the Granby has
at last convinced those of the faintest
faith that the possibilities of mining in
the Upper country are nowhere greater
than in the Boundary district. With
two railways competing for the haulage
of the ores everything became possible.
The ores, though low grade, were self
fluxing. Moreover, they contained so
low a percenage of sluphur that all preliminary roasting, or a double passage
through the furnaces, was unnecessary.
All this conduced to low rates in freighting and in smelting, while the gigantic
size of the ore bodies made mining almost exclusively a matter of stoping out
the ore, whereas in most mines the development work is often many times
greater than the actual work of breaking down the ore bodies and is seldom
less than at least equal.
This is the explanation of the success of the Granby and its first properties, the Knob Hill and Oldi Ironsides, to which have now been joined
many a contiguous property. And success has made success. The first efforts of the smelters at Greenwood and
at Boundary Falls were not particularly
attractive. But this stage has been
passed. Both of these smelters, the one
immediately, the other within a short
period, are greatly enlarging their
plants, and the output of the Boundary
for the year 1907 will be unprecedlently
great, and will be Conducted on so large
a scale that the attention of not alone
Canada, but of the whole mining world,
will inevitably be drawn to this district,
which will thus form the best advertisement that mining in this province could
possibly have.
It is to these causes, these effects, that
tlie recent feverish activity in the
Boundary is due. Those in the know
in the district, seeing the likelihood of
a rush taking place into the district, are
bonding, leasing, acquiring, and developing properties in every direction. Not
only are the more recognized camps being exploited, but the advent of the new
spurs to the rail roads are making possible the development of other properties situated in lesser known places. A
prominent example of this is taking
place up the north fork of the Kettle
river, where today towns are springing
up which a year ago were wilderness.
And the railways know what is coming,
for they, too, the Great Northern, the
C.P.R., the Midway and Vernon, are all
pressing forward to be first in the field
for the great tonnage which will make
the  Boundary  tamous.
In  a lesser  degree    the    activity  in
mining is helping out the fruit ranchers
and the agricultural industry generally,
for the work upon the mines and upon
the railroads is bound to create a large
population,  to  whom  fruit  and  fodder
will  become necessities.    And thc  demand  that  can  be   supplied) locally  is j
better  suited  than  when  it is met by:
outside  supply.    Hence  land  is booming  and  so  is  the    ranching   industry |
generally.   At no time in its history was
the Boundary in a better condition than |
it is now.   The years of stagnation, of 1
patient experiment and apparently hope-
less  waiting, are now to receive their j
full fruition.   The only lack is thc lack
of men.   The railways want them, the
mines want them, the smelters are de-
manding 'more labor.    Top prices are
being paid, and'when the first rush of
settlers in the golden harvest lands of j
tlie northwest has been somewhat stay- j
ed, then those who are in search of a
more equable climate, will infallibly beJ
attracted to this land of work.  While
the  government  has  not  yet  surveyed
the  lands  it possesses in this vicinity, \
vet  the railways have  plenty of land. I
•oid the  Canadian  Pacific in particular
has been careful to have its grants in !
ntch shape that they can reasonably be I
taken  up.
