lade in    It is an excellent thing to

and at the present moment
lery loyal Victorian is putting his

stimulate    local    manufactures.
fiere is one produ.-t, however, which
lust he regarded in the light of an
Iception to this otherwise admirable
lile, and that is the manufacture of
bws.   It is true that if a heavy li-
jnce were imposed on a business of
pis kind it might work a hardship in
prtain directions which need not be
lore definitely particularized.     In-
eed it is more than likely that one
fell-known  factory  would   have  to
lose down for lack of raw material.

|iggested to The Week by a perusal
the account given in the Victoria
limes of the meeting held at Salt
ring Island hy Premier McBride
lid the Hon. R. F. Green. By com-
lon consent the gathering was large,
pthusiastie, nnd favorable to the
Micy and declarations of the min-

iy criticism was directed was the
Imperatively unimportant one con-
Irning a road-boss. It not infre-
lently happens, especially in rural
striets, where there are fewer dis-

atters of this kind assume an aspect

liiil issues. But in the present in-

might travel from Halifax to Esquimalt and never hear anything more
musical than a fog-horn or a cowbell. Nothing cauld be more ludicrous than the way in which even
professional musicions save their
breath. On the occasion of the recent visit of Prince Arthur of Connaught to Victoria the Fifth Regiment band after waiting at the Outer
Wharf for two hours, during which
not a note was sounded, although
there were a thousand people waiting
around, who would have appreciated
a few patriotic airs, contented itself
with playing the opening bars of the
National Anthem, a performance which
lasted exactly ten seconds. The musicians (save the mark) were then
bundled into- vehicles and driven
away, apparently in the happy consciousness of having served their
Country and their King. It is no uncommon sight to see a band marching at the head of its regiment without playing at all, or at any rate only
for a short time, a proceeding which
casts the gloom of silence over the
whole proceeding. The observer is
entirely at a loss to account for this
extraordinary condition of things. In
the Old Country there is no difficulty
in getting a band, and certainly none
in inducing it to play. The idea of
a band that Joes not play would he
regarded as a anachronism. Music
is as popular in Canada as in England," and the people evince their
pleasure in no stinted manner whenever they have the opportunity of
hearing it, as witness the thousands
who flocked to the Gorge only a few
days ago, and the packed house which
greeted the appearance of the Hawaiian Band in the Victoria Theatre.
Seriously, cannot something be done
to give the public band music in some
central, accessible spot every day,
week-day and Sunday, during the
summer season?   Surely the cost does
was due to the efforts of that modest
and much under-rated organ. If such
a reckless statement had not been
made one might have been disposed
to leave it in possession of whatever
shred of comfort it could derive from
the fact, that it had joined in the
hue and cry after the liberated convict, and had incurred his dire indignation by calling him names more
forcible than polite. We fear, however, that an incredulous public will
hardly be prepared to award the
credit for the capture to the World
on the bare statement of Brothier
that "your dirty paper was the cause
of all my troubles." We fear the
witness "is too tainted to be relied
upon, the more so in view of the fact
that shortly before his arrest in Seattle the World wired to the Provincial Government that they had
traced him to Montreal. Most people
will agree that the action of Mr. Ful-
lon compares more than favorably
with that of the Hon. Charles Fitzpatrick, erstwhile Minister of Justice in the Federal Cabinet, and now
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
of Canada, especially since Mr. Aylesworth has been obliged to admit that
the hero of the Green-Gaynor case is
also the nigger in the fence in the disreputable Brothier case.
Ana Qura. The Week blazed the
trail which has led to
reformation on the part
of the milk dealers of Victoria who
are to-day giving their customers a
purer grade and a better quality of
milk than at any rate for some years
past. The campaign was instituted
and carried to a successful issue entirely in the public interests, and although the names of the chief offenders, as well as of the store-keepers who supplied them with the noxious chemicals, were well known to
our reporter, they have not been divulged, since the object aimed at was
successfully attained without this exposure,. If, however, the milk of the
future is contaminated it may not be
the fault either of the dealers or the
store-keepers, since the water supply
open up negotiations with the Water
Company, instead of trying to run
obvious bluffs, the sooner will the reproach on an inadequate and impure
supply he removed, and the sooner
will the most important problem in
the development of Victoria be solved.

the writers are American, and with
still fewer exceptions the advertisements offer the wares of American
manufacturers. AU this advertising
pabulum is skilfully inserted in a
modicum of Canadian news between
Canadian covers. The whole scheme
is so obviously a subterfuge to palm)
off American goods under the guise
of a Canadian magazine that the public cannot be too promptly advised as
to its real character. As a smart
business trick it may be worthy of
some commendation, from a standpoint which, however, does not appeal to the Britisher, but from the
reasonable latitude where    they find

edict of the License Commissioners
few saloons have been permanently
closed, the vast majority taking this
necessary steps to provide sleeping
accommodation, and to qualify for a
hotel license. This somewhat drastic
policy has not yet been adopted in ]
Victoria, and it is doubtful if, in j
spite of the determined but abortve |
efforts of the Rev. Gladstone and his
to be rather a bare-faced attempt at
sharp practice. However, so long as
onr readers are warned, they may
safely be left to deal with it strictly
on its merits.

A certain section of Vancouver's upper-crust has been in rather a flutter
over the presence in their midst of a
belted earl travelling incognito. Of
course any entertainment extended has
courteously been of a quiet nature in
deference to the wishes of the Unknown, but there has been that grand
simplicity about it which the trained eye
perceives in only the most costly of
Worth creations. The Unknown, I am
assured, is extracting a great deal of
pleasant amusement from Vancouver
hospitality, but not entirely of the kind
one expects from a delighted guest. Its
chief source is the fact that he has this
greatness thrust upon him, and has,'
after fruitless efforts to correct the
misapprehension under which the public labors, accepted the pseudo-belt with
which society would lovingly embrace
him, and thus, in the language of the
cow camp, "he has the cinch."
* *   *
In Splendid Isolation.
A a result of extended and acrimonious bickerings at the last City Council
meeting, His Worship the Mayor stands
alone for the time being. A talented
amateur sculptor is busy modelling a
group depicting Mr. Buscombe in the
gladiatorial garb of ancient Rome astride the prostrate body of Chief North,
while wavering thumbs, neither up nor
down, represent a kind of chevaeux de
frise at the base of the group. His
Worship is strong in conscious rectitude, and refuses to trim his sails to
any one of the varying winds that blow
about him. Meanwhile the Council
has left him in the temporary position
of taking a drastic step from which
they  withhold  approval.
* *   *
His chief critics persist in harping
on the unsavory subject of the restricted district as naturally the head and
front of offence. This idea has become
so solidified in their heads that it would
require something more cutting than
His Worship's comments to detach it.
The tendency has been ton general for
a very long lime In constantly wash
this item of Vancouver's laundry in
public places. Vice was, is, and will be
as long as man is what he is. and the
acceptance of a necessary evil is the
part of thc wise; coupled, of course,
with   any  measure    that   may  keep   it
within bounds.
* *   *
In the Toils Again.
Now that Brothier is once more in
the toils I hear that explanations and
excuses for the strange action of the
Department of Justice are coming thick
and fast. The most convincing is that
the man was permitted to s 'rve out his
two years for procuring, but that, as a
result of the strong representations
made, the remainder of his sentence was
commuted. Those who were working
for him succeeded in convincing the
powers   at  Ottawa   that  the   witnesses
Maclaren's flyer, is taking no part in
the Honolulu race now in progress. The
Maple Leaf, there can be small doubt,
would have shown her heels to more
than one of the competitors, and might
in the issue have added lustre to the
pennant of the R.V.Y.C.
* *   *
The result of last Saturday's championship lacrosse match went chiefly to
show that both tne Vancouvers and
Maple Leafs need licking into shape in
work and morale. The game was
punctuated by free fights, certainly not
of a very violent character, but sufficiently disorderly to require drastic
steps by the referees. It is certainly to
be regretted that this excessive roughness, showing lack of discipline among
a team as a whole and lack of self-
control in its individual members, should
be almost entirely confined to lacrosse.
Canada will no longer be willing to own
it as her "national game" if its chief
exponents forget that in the A B C of
the game are included good temper audi
clean play.

The newly-organized Maple Leafs
will doubtless eventually form a strong
team if they have a strong hand over
them and practice religiously. At pres
ent they are, with the exception of their
goal-keeper, in Geer, hopelessly outclassed by the Vancouvers. Saturday's
score was n to 7 in favor of the latter.

States, who seem to consider Miss Sutton invincible.
In the contest for the Davis challange
cup Raymond D. Little, of New York,

The lawn tennis season has now fairly started and the J. B. A. A. are to be
congratulated on the appearance of their
three courts on Kingston street. These
courts, which are composed of clay, are
kept in perfect condition by a ground-
man who is in constant attendance;
every convenience in the form of changing rooms is to be found and there is
every prospect that the summer of 1906
will find this club ''booming." Mr. Geo.
Simpson has been elected chairman of
the tennis committee and will be pleased to receive the names of all who intend joining.
The Victoria Fernwood baseball club
was not successful against the Seattle
Electric on Sunday last, in fact bjy
common consent, the exhibition of the
local boys was below par. They allowed their opponents to score ten while
they got a couple. We are not making
excuses for the team, and it must be
admitted that they were distinctly inferior to their opponents; at the same
time the latter have playedi together
several seasons and make a fairly strong
combination. If the Fernwoodi are to
hold together they will have to put in
more practice and play a closer game.
It is no use complaining of the paucity
of spectators, the remedy is in their
nwn hands.

Holness, the Victoria pitcher, being hit
all over the field without difficulty.
Undoubtedly the Coal City is the home
of some good sport.
The High School baseball team went
lo Duncans, and defeated the local aggregation on Monday last by seven to

Fred Richardson is sustaining his
reputation as a crack shot. At Clover
Point on Monday last he scored 93,
only two less than Sergeant Carr, who
headed the list.
On Saturday last the Victoria cricket
club A team defeated the Garrison by
115 to 76, with four men not out.
The regular monthly meeting of the

were not such as the Court could place

society. A lame excuse, I think. It
was only a case of a man being convicted on the evidence of his peers.
Tiie event of thc week has been the
opening of the Vancouver Athletic
Club's spacious new quarters at the
enmer of Dunsinuir and Realty Streets,
near the Drill Hall. In honor of the
event, which had been looked forward
to with keen interest by both athletic
and social Vancouver, a three-days'
celebration was held, opening on Tuesday with the formal inaugural ceremonies, presided over bv the President
of the Club, Mr. F. R.' McD. Russell.
Over 3,000 guests attended this function,
occupying themselves prior to and after the speech-making and supper, in inspecting thc handsome institution. On,
Wednesday evening an athletic enter-
tainment was given under the direction
of Instructor Rothwell, and nn Tluirs-
Victoria,  was  held in Ihe club rooms
last evening, at whicli President H. D.
Helmcken,  K.C,  presided.    Many  important matters pertaining to the  welfare  of  the club  were  discussed, the
most    important,   however,   being    the
j*  election of the largest number of meni-
I hers   that   has   taken   place   for  many

! condition, and at the meeting last even-

elected.   Among the newly elected members   arc   some   very   promising  oears-
Reports were received from the various committees, and all were very favorable. George Y. Simpson was appointed chairman of the tennis committee. This branch of the sports is progressing very favorably, and great interest is being taken in thc game by
the new as well as many of the old
members; and from the present outlook
the season is expected to be a very successful one.

How did it happen, I wonder, dear,
That far, so far we have strayed away
From the land we loved the best to here
Where the earth is grim and skies are
Where no man pipes but where all
men pay?
That was a different place we knew
Where Love went singing and Youth
was gay—
We were Arcadians once, we two.
For here be workaday tasks and drear,
And masters we dare not disobey;
Sirs  Craft and Cunning and Jibe and
They drive us on till we be as they.
Have you forgotten that holiday
Land that we lived in, where skies were
A land of laughter and song and play?
We were Arcadians once, we two.
There's never a poet now, I fear,
Could thrill and still us beneath his
There's never a song we care to hear,
There's never a verse we yearn to say.
We follow gold and forsake the bay;
Yet once the thought of it burned us
In the land of rhyme and roundelay;
We were Arcadians once, we two.
Pity it was we chanced to stray I
There's no returning for me and you.
Ah, who would guess, when we yawn in
We were Arcadians once, we two?

■Hher pretty "auto" story has come

in the mud on Sundaw evening in the
rain. Away they went up hill and over
dale, until coming down a steep incline
a bolt gave way and there was the
weird sound of dragging chains like we
read of in old fashioned ghost stories.
Then a halt, chaffeur crawling underneath, passengers huddled together under one umbrella; time flies and mud
thickens. Funny man of the party loses
his head and gabbles in Chinese. Deep
voice from below: 'Can't go on; screw
missing." Some one suggests that the
funny man gives up the screw he had
loose "up top." But he didn't see the
joke, and there they were all "stuck."

The Warl Riedelsberger String Quar-1
tette for musicianship stands on equal j
footing with the famous Kniesel Quar-
tete of Boston, and although more recently organized than this historic group
has already won an honored place among concert performers of the first
order. Its composition is: Karl Riedelsberger, late concert master in Theodore Thomas'' orchestra, first violin;
Sydney Brown, the English composer,
second violin; Eduard Busch, viola; and
Erwin Gastel, 'cello. The repertoire
of the quartette is an extensive one,
embracing works in every branch of
the best musical literature—the popular
selections of rich melody as well as the
classical being given equal attention. In
addition to the quartette numbers, Herr
Riedelsberger and M. Gtstel will be
heard respectively in violin and violiucello solos, they being continentally
famed as individual perfarmers.
Miss Dahl is no longer a stranger to
Victoria. At the recital whihe introduced her to Victoria, given at Institute Hall less than a month ago, she
completely won the hearts and the approbation of her genius of all who heard
her. Requests for a return have since
been numerous, and these are in part
responsible for the success of the Arion
Club in securing her co-operation to
make the forthcoming concert a truly
great event.
In deference to the high reputation
musicianly attainments of the Riedelsberger Quartette and of Miss Dahl, the
Arion Club appers for the first time at

The offering at the Victoria this week
has been a single one but the quality
such that it more than makes up for an
otherwise blank week. The Hawaiian
Band is a fine aggregation of musicians,
all natives, of the islands which Stevenson loved so well, and all gifted with
musical taste. Under the conductorship
of Captain Bcrger they more than satisfied the large audience which filled
the theatre on Wednesday night, and
frequent encores were insisted upon.
They were more successful in native airs
than in the more difficult and classical
compositions of Wagner. It may also
be said with truth that they excelled
more in forte than in pianissimo, and
were rather deficient in that light touch
and delicate phrasing which characterised the technique of the Coldstream
and Royal Irish Guards Band. The vo-
calism was very pleasing both in solo and
glee pnrts, the voices possessing that
peculiarly rich melodious quality which
is invariably found among the South
Sea Islanders. The conductor, Capt. H.
Bcrger is a most interesting personality.

and humor whihe was thoroughly refreshing after the gyratory and gymnastic  performances  which   have been  so

The event should be made a notable
one—and all that is required lo make it
such is the co-optralion and support of
all Victoria music-loving people.

lt may not be generally known, because such things are only spoken of
with bated breath, even in the sacred
precincts of The Week offices, but
among the staff The Lounger is classed
as a "cheerful Idiot." This soubriquet
has not been lightly earned, but has
resulted from a settled conviction, gradually forced upon those who have had
the best opportunities of studying his
work and methods, as he resolutely
declines lo commit to paper his latest
profusion, in line with the many which
have earned for him a certain immortality, but doubtful fame, the chief has
asked Bohemian to submit to a discerning public the grounds upon which the
aforesaid opinion is based.
It came about in this wise. About a
week ago a telephonic message from
the Garrison readied the city in the
late afternoon with an urgent request
for the immediate presence of Col. A.
VV. Jones. The Lounger happened to be
in the Colonel's office, when the message arrived, and noticing that gentleman in a state of great agitation possibly looked the question, which etiquette forbad him to ask. At any rate
the Colonel with that geniality for which
he is distinguished,  remarked, "I have
Even the cheerful idiot could not fail
to perceive the humor of the situation,
but his feelings were too strong for
words, and anticipating a somewhat
painful, or at any rate embarrassing return journey, he skilfully managed to
get lost in the canteen, and allowed the
colonel to return alone.
During the respectable interval which
politeness suggested should elapse belt're he followed, he made a few inquiries in the interests of the journal to
which in spite of his idiocy, he is a
vaiued contributor, and summarized the
information which he gleaned, in the

was sick of pins. She had farthing
bundles of pins by the score in her
work-box at home, and so she replied:
"Well, thank you, I would prefer the
money this time, if you please."
Thc shop-lady elevated her brows for
a moment, and then retired. In less
than five minutes she returned with the
man-of-war.   The Lounger declares that j overseer of the department.
Lord Aylmer, inspector-general of thc
Canadian militia, is expected to arrive in
this city on the 14th instant. He will
inspect the local company of Rocky
Mountain Rangers. On (he 16th he will
visit  Rossland.
at this stage thc representative of the
Canadian forces turned pale, and dropped the telescope. With the agility
which all who know The Lounger at-
tribute to his movements he caught it,
and with eyes almost bursting from his
head read upon the prow of the vessel
the  fatal  name "Mariechen."

At this moment one of the floorwalkers, whose business it is to oil the
cogs of give-and-take, came upon the
scene, smiled an adipose smile, and rubbing the flat of his right hand against
his left palm, said:
"Goodi-day, madam! Can I render
you  any assistance?"
The head of the department explained
briefly that the lady objected to pins,
and that there was a scarcity of small
change in the establishment.
"Oh! If it is only pins, madam, I assure you we have them of every size
and description."
"So have II" cried Mrs. Cobbins,
Here the young lady drew the drawer
bodily out, placed it on the counter,
and took up a handful, letting them fall
through her fingers as children do who
play with the sand at the seaside.
"I prefer my change, thank you!"
"I know this country sort; they're
stubborn as pigs," was the reflection of
the shop-walker as he retired in search
of a superior. This was no less a personage than the head shop-walker—a
gentleman with large expanse of shirt-
front, a gold ring, and unimpeachable
broadcloth  coat-tails.
When the trouble had been explained
once more, he said, in his silveriest
"Perhaps, then, the lady would take
tape—red, white, or black tape?"
This was an offer so startling in its
originality, so contrary to all precedent,
that it almost amounted to a stroke of
commercial genius. The humbler functionaries stared aghast at such a master-
thought of generous diplomacy, and if
Mrs. Cobbins had been offered tape at
the first she might have succumbed.
But, as it was, with four against her, a
fine bucolic spirit of pugnacity was
kindled in the bosom of the dame, and
at the sound of the word, the great
word "tape," Mrs. Cobbins showed, by
an unmistakeably contumelious curve
of her maternal lip, that such offers
were superfluous, and that she would
have none of them.

in the country by honest parents, before schools and shops was done wholesale ; but I know that one-and-eleven-

I want my change."
"But will you not buy some other
commodity? Here are some excellent
cambric  handkerchiefs  at    four-three;

"Nothing further, thank you, except
my money," said Mrs. Cobbins, politely
but firmly.
The head shop-walker retired, and returned presently in close    conversation
with one of the general superintendents.
He was a busy, anxious, choleric-look-
' ing man, andl evidently resented being
j brought into the dispute.
"Well,    what's    thc    trouble    now?
Miss  , there is someone waiting to

i    The shop-girl  was reminded    of her
i duties.
"May I inquire what is the reason
: of your refusal? None of our other
! customers ever complain."
"I am waiting for my change," re-
■ plied Mrs. Cobbins, stolidly.
"Perhaps,  madam,    you  have    some
small change in your own purse?"
"I'll look."
Mrs. Cobbins took out her purse,
searched it through, and then opened
the central part reserved for gold. A
grim smile spread over her countenance
as she proceeded to unfold a small packet.   It contained twenty-five pins!
"If it's all give-and-take, as you say,
perhaps you'll oblige me by taking back
this 'ere packet you gave me last time
as T was in. There, it's just as you
gave it me; I haven't touched it."
"Now." she added, with a triumph-
| ant smile, "you owe me a h'penny."
The general superintendent collapsed,
! and went in search of the one of the
, partners of the firm.
"Really, madam," said that gentleman,
when he arrived on the scene; "really,

Dear Madge:
The long flowing lines and exquisite
contours of present day gowns serve to
demonstrate anew the value of corset-
making, (I have heard it spoken of as
jewel-case making) as a fine art. Of
what avail, indeed, beauty of material)
delicacy of coloring, no matter how perfectly designed and modelled a gown
may be, if its ultimate destiny is to be
worn over an ungraceful and ill-fitting
corset? It is perhaps a truism to say
that the French grasped this idea centuries ago, and that we are only beginning to recognize it now, but certain it
is that there is small excuse for the
ill-corseted woman of today. Though
women generally pay much more attention to their figures than of yore, and
recognize that the efforts of the entire
dressmakers' world cannot fit a frock
over an untidily corseted figure, a good
many yet remain who put the "cart before the horse," in the immemoriably
silly manner by taking great pains over
the orderings of a frock and allowing
the foundation of its success, namely,
the corset, to take care of itself.
No greater error can be committed in
matlers sartorial, and from the hygienic and the aesthetic aspect equally,
the importance of the corset cannot be
over-estimated. Spotted nets are legion,
and perhaps a little hackneyed, but a
new kind I discovered lately is certainly
out of the common. It possesses a
strong plain Brussels basis and is
striped with rows of large silk spots. In
an Empire gown it is made up with
the stripes running horizontally round
the figure, and in the bodiice the net is
arranged in groups of tuckings, the
spotted stripe forming a quaint border
to each fold. Through each a satin ribbon is run matching the soft satin foundation which is nowadays used in preference to glace or soft silk for this
By the way, accordion pleating is
still worn a great deal in soft silks,
voile, etc., for light summer gowns.
This pleating is beautifully done by the
Mark Long Co.. Hastings Street, Vancouver, who have the very latest
model machine for doing all kinds of
accordion pleating.
No smart gown at this season of the
year is complete without a dainty sunshade. Embroidered linen covers arc
not new, of course, but they have reappeared with the assurance of a debutante in her second season, and will
be very popular witb women who cannot afford a separate sunshade for every
frock. The absence of frilliness in the
smarter models is rather striking. Embossed and "applique" effects are the
leading methods of decoration. Plain
white parasols with richly-brocaded
bordcrings are amongst the newest
fancies, and (they have the saving
grace of being economical, inasmuch as
they will go with any gown. Heavy
black motifs of braid and lace are used
on white grounds, with very handsome
results, and a prophecy may be hazarded as to the appearance of the Moire
cover. Chine effects are, as ever, with us
and as to the handles, one need but add
that they are for the most part plain
and long, and frequently enamelled to
match the prevailing color of the parasol.
Colored shoe-leather and hosiery to
match never had a more opportune
moment in which to make a favorable
impression upon dainty women than the
present. Many of the store windows
are gay with specimens of pearl-grey
shoes, suede buckled, and tan and
white shoes in canvas and doeskin. Ap-
propos there is a great bargin sale on
at present at the Watson Shoe Store,
6$ Yates Street, where ladies' footwear
is being sold at ridiculously low prices.
Women who wear the Empire gown
in the evening arc affecting diadems
carried nut in imitation of the Napoleonic wreath in leaves and flowers,
worked  out   in  jewels  on  combs.
A very lovely comb was shown to me
the other day at Challoner Mitchell's.
Tt was of a dainty design in jewelled
leaves with coral artistically arranged
representing beautiful little flowers. Tt
is considered a la mode, also, to wear
rinitc a liny crown at one side of the
coiffure. A scintillating mass of diamonds and ttimuoises is perched above
the left ear, in the position usually accorded only lo thc aigrette. The crown
is quite small, and would rest in the
hollow of the hand.
Tl is i curious fact that applies to
other thincs besides carpets and chair
coverings that the art of thc Orient —
I purposely omit  India  from this cate
gory—has not a paralyzing effect upon
the furniture of an ordinary room when
chosen at random. There is hardly any
Japanese piece of common, ordinary,
every-day art that, when brought into
a modern Western room would stride
a loudly inharmonious note; but the
same cannot be said of the bizarre-colored Austrian ware, of the majolica of
Rouen, or of the productions of Dresden, or, indeed, of many cheap English wares. It might be said of delfl
in the older-style pieces, which are a
replica of the Eastern originals. It may
be that our eyes, by reason of our long
commercial connection with the East,
have grown accustomed to seeing som"
stray piece of art amid Western surroundings, but it is a curious fact and
it is a fact, too—that as a rule Indiar
art objects require more suitable surroundings than the ordinary drawing-
room affords. Speaking of such things
reminds me that a very good place lo rr
for old china, brass, and copper is Mrs
M. E. MacLeod, on Douglas Street
She has a splendid collection of rare

Have you ever used "Japalac" c
your woodwork and floors? I can hi"h-
ly recommend it as beintr most durable
sanitary and giving the highest possibh

door in which you can "see yourself
and is equally applicable to walls or
furniture. Mellor Bros., Ltd*, For'

in Victoria.
It has been suggested, in all the so'
enmity with which women with a mission usually take themselves, that "editors of weekly journals would forbi''
writers of fashion articles to 'rave'
over headgear decorated with feathers
other than those of the ostrich, or by
written description of prevailing modes
in plumes, to encourage the thoughtless
to. invest in the same." Now, while
sympathizing with the bereft birds
whose tails and topknots women covet
and pay for, it is to he hoped that editors will not too eagerly embrace this
suggested role of sartorial Solons. A
new terror would be added to the journalist's delectable existence were bovr-
ing editors ever ready to pounce on
feathers foreign to their tastes. The
ban might in time extend itself to sable-
tails and pearls, which just as certainly
mean murder to oysters and animals.
Where also would be our cherished
freedom from interference if blue-pencils were invoked so readily? Tn a
word, if herons and ospreys are to go
free, why not the journalist also? Or if
feminine wing-feathers are to be clipped, why let those of jays and jackdaws remain intact?
P. S — Oh, Madge. I quite forgot to
tell you of thc delightful picnic we had
at Cordova Bay on Wednesday afternoon. A dozen of us hired that luxur-
iits White tally-ho, which disports is-
self round Victoria daily for the benefit
of pleasure seekers; and needless to say
we were carried to and fro in fine style,
and everyone was loud in their praises
of the splendid turn-out and the enjoyable trip.; We hope to go again several times during the present season.

The kink in Editor Deane's make-up
was never better illustrated than in the
following remarkable editorial comment
cut from the Nelson News of the 8th
inst. For a disingenuous misrepresentation of facts it is hard to beat.
"Speaking at Cranbrook the other
evening, Premier McBride quoted the
Vancouver World with evident approval,
lie at least believes the World to be a

he should lose no time in having the

way in which your paper is conducted
and express my admiration for your
fearless audi outspoken style in which
you handle public incident* of all kinds.
It is very refreshing after the namby-
pamby style of the rest of the respectable papers of the province, and such a
contrast to the blackguardism of our
inferiour newspapers.
I enclose my subscription for the current year.

Nelson, June 13.—Times are greatly
Improving in Nelson and week by week
nore and more men are coming into the
City.   Some are workingmen, employed
In various capacities by the Canadian
Pacific railroad which has probably the
liggest payrool  in  the camp,  though
[un hard by the smelter, whose recent
Inprovements will place it a worthy sec-
Indi to   the   Trail Reduction Works;
lime are business men, some ranchers,
Pich of which latter bring in a sensible
lidition to the capital of the city, and
Ime in tins or that capacity, all  of
Ihich tends more and more forcibly to
pcentuate the importance of this city
the metropolis of the Kootenays.
(indeed the payroll of this city can-
pt far fall short, if it does at all, that
Rossland, where at the mines up-
lards of 900 men are employed.    All
lie men which were taken off at the
flops last fall have been since replaced
rid taking into consideration the in
teasing tonnage handled over rail and
tater, an increase on the old figures,
fhose diminishing was bewailed by the
jiinthearted, has been made.  Under the
lew system at the smelter
landled will be largely augmented and
iecessarily the labor increased.    There
|,re many small industries in the city,
he number of which has recently in-
Ireased and it will further increase as
oon as power is available from the new
lity plant.   Then the Silver King has
lent out recently over 700 tons of ore,
feat of which the mine not long ago
Iras deemed incapable, the Eureka has
leen taken over by the Canadian Con-
lolidated M. & S. Company to sweeten
jrith its copper values the bare copper
lock of, Rossland.   The La Plata mill
running and 100 men are there em-
Jloyed.   A new sawmill is certain to go
li within the next few morfths.    Some
lianufactures  for the working of local
limber are also to be undertaken and
will be seen inside of the next six
leeks that the fruit crops of berries
Till far exceed anything shipped in past
(ears, thereby  further    increasing  the
liflux of ranchers by that best of all
|dvertisements, succcess.
But Nelson is by no means alone in
|s prosperity. The whole district is
etting rich. Rossland affairs have
liken a turn. It is probable that within
lie next six months tlie output of that
'amp will have nearly doubled and the
lumber of its shipping mines increased,
llready there are 900 ment at work
lithin that camp and within a few
(reeks a least another 200 will have to
employed in putting in the new
jiachinery at the Centre Star alone, a
liachinery and a systme of development
Ihich will mean the doubling of the
|utput of that mine.
In the Boundary the B. C. Copper
Jompany is starting this week in the
listallation  of  its  three new  furnaces
tion. It is whispered here and there
that there may be more labor candidates
put out in the field, as the Western
Federation were never stronger than at
present and are much encouraged, rank
and file, by the success of their English
brethren in the Old Country in January last. This may be the case, but
certainly there is nothing authentic up
to the present. As a general rule the
men are contented with their employers; they are getting better wages than
ever and under sucn conditions labor,
usually, is content to leave well alone.
They are not, however, particularly enamored with the programme of the Liberals who for the last three years have
practically introduced nothing particularly designed for them into the House
at Victoria. Everything, therefore points
to the workingman's vote going for the
McBride Government which has at least
brought them prosperity and security
in their occupation.

clause to be inserted in the British Co-

No fewer than five bills stood over until
this clause is drafted, and while the concession is due to the opposition of competing lines no British Columbian will

Little Canadians.
The Kootenaian claims to have discovered sixteen Little Canadians in the
Canadian Senate. It measures them by
their vote upon the V. W. & Y Railway
bill, which they opposed. The Kootenaian has made many mistakes, but this
is one of its greatest. These men were

The motto of The Kootenaian and the
supporters of the Hill railway policy
is "Canada second."
