ECTRIC  TRAMWAY   EXTENSION
The extension of the B. C. Electric
Iway into the Saanich Peninsula is
lently on the tapis and may be said to
within the range of practical politics.
Goward, the local manager, has had
umber of interviews with the land
lei's of the district, and has clearly
lined the policy of his Company. It
as foreshadowed by The Week a year
, to extend the system throughout the
re fertile districts of the Peninsula,
ject to two conditions: that the loca-
will depend upon the freight offering,
upon the assistance whicii the land-
lers are willing to render. There is
le doubt but that after calmly consider-
the situation wise counsels will pre-
. The land-owners have before them
[admirable object lesson in the develop-
it whicli has been brought about in the
Icrict contiguous to Vancouver and
Iw Westminster, mainly, if not entirely,
J the enlightened policy of the B. C.
|ctric Railway Company. Until they
their lines through the district there
no real development. Isolated settlers
acquired and partially cultivated lim-
areas, but, without an organised sys-
li of transportation, they could neither
Ich their homes nor market their prole economically. Not only has the ad-
lit of the railway solved this problem,
it has led to the establishment of a
Isiderable number of townsites, and im-
J'tant communities are springing up
lund them.. The land-owners on the
kinland realised that it was good busi-
Is to offer every inducement in their
per to bring about the extension of the
llway system as quickly as possible,
ley met the Company in a generous
Inner, and the latter reciprocated by
Jtting to work without delay, spending
pwards of $4,000,000 in extensions ancl
Isuring a degree of development which
luld not otherwise have been possible
Ir many years. The land-owners in the
Imich Peninsula are face to face with a
Imilar crisis; they have a more fertile
mntry, and land capable of producing
•eater values. At the present time the
ist of transportation is prohibitive and
nivenient access is impossible. It is
ue that in ten or twenty years the rail-
ay company might extend tlieir system,
it the benefits of an immediate extension,
ren at the cost of a small contribution in
nd areas, Avould far outweigh the ques-
onable economy of holding the land and
ist-poning the development. Mr. Gow
rd is too reasonable a man to make any
nfair demands, and if the land-owners
vince a disposition to meet the Companv
i a fair spirit it will not be many month i
efore construction commences, and the
irarden of Canada will blossom into an
ra of prosperity which will surprise
ven its most enthusiastic admirers.
>ESIRABLE IMMIGRANTS
Mr. Graham Forrester, a gentleman
or many years well ancl favourably
nown in Soutli AVales, but for some time
resident in Victoria, is tlie accredited
epresentative in British Columbia of tlie
mperial Federation League. This League
ias an influential list of officers, ancl has
>een formed for the purpose of sending
o Canada desirable immigrants of Brit-
_ birth. Mr. Forrester only received his
ommission recently, but has already got
i work and his first contract is to furnish
ompetent miners to the Canadian Col-
liich has taken over the Dunsmuir
lines, ancl which is about to establish a
ew mining camp in the Comox district
'he Week has always maintained that in
rder to procure immigrants of the right
lass special organisation is necessary,
id the League with which Mr. Forrester
is indentified should be able to effect its
purpose. Whilst tliere is a scarcity of
labour in almost every department, there
is a conspicuous lack of experienced coal
miners in British Columbia. This accounts for the over-whelming numbers of
Slavs ancl Chinamen, who have been utilised because British labour was not
available. The result does not tend to
raise the morale in the mining communities and it undoubtedly increases the dangers of a sufficiently perilous occupation.
Ignorance of the language, the customs
and the discipline, which are inseparable
from British mining camps, leads the undesirable immigrant to commit many
blunders, and there is no better remedy
than that whicli is being systematically
engineered by Mr. Forrester and his acquaintances.
TENNIS TOURNAMENT
Tennis Week in Victoria is always
one of the social events of the year. This
year its is rendered doubly interesting
from the fact that the splendid new
grounds on Cadboro Bay Road have for
THE SONGHEES RESERVE
The Week has been requested to publish in a prominent position the following
letter, addressed by Chief Cooper to the
Editor of The Colonist. It does so without comment, the circumstances being
sufficiently self-explanatory.
To thc Editor of The Colonist:
Sir,—Your editorial headed "Injustice to Mr. Templeman" appearing in
this morning's issue has been read over
to me. I cannot allow the article to go
unquestioned, and take the earliest opportunity of answering it.
The interview in question appearing
in your issue of yesterday I state most
emphatically is absolutely correct ancl I
have nothing further to add.
Yours truly,
(Sgd) M. COOPER,
Chief Songhees.
Empire Cannery,
Esquimalt.
Aug. 3rd, 1910.

the first time been utilised, with the consequence that the entries have 'reached
the astonishing number of 170, ancl yet
the accommodation, whicii furnished six
courts, has been sufficient to enable the
whole schedule of events to be carried
through Avithout inconvenience. FeAV
cities in Canada could furnish a brighter
spectacle than the beautiful grounds of
the Tennis Club, clotted with players ancl
thronged with interested spectators. Undoubtedly, tennis is in the ascendant, and
the Club made no mistake Avhen it decided to launch out into this new venture.
In view of the success which has attended
the enterprise ancl the enconiums whicli
have been literally showered upon the
management during the Avcek, it is only
fair to say that the Club is deeply indebted to the Hon. James Dunsmuir for
the financial aid Avhich he afforded ancl
Avhich alone rendered it possible to move
from the cribbed quarters on Belcher
Street to the present ground. The
Week A-entures to predict a prosperous
future for the Club, and most of tho
credit is due to the Ladies Committee
Avhich, in season ancl out of season, is
Avorking and planning for its success.
THE CANADIAN NORTHERN
What is the matter Avith the Victoria
Times? That is, what is the matter more
than usual? Its innate "cussedness" prevents it at all times from beginning to do
justice to any project with which the
Provincial Government is identified. This
is called tite game of politics, although
The Week ventures to think that, if it is
a game, it is badly played. Games are
played for the purpose of winning, at any
rate, that is the case on this continent, but
The Times only enjoys a losing game. Its
senseless hostility to thc railway policy
at the last Provincial election resulted in
a Waterloo for its party. If it had endorsed the policy and contented itself with
criticising the details, it Avould at least
have had a numerically respectable representation in the House. But, it pronounced thc Canadian Northern ancl the
Provincial Government with all tlieir
works, Anathema, Maran-atha. Any paper
but The Times Avould understand that
there might be a feAV Aveeks or even a feAV
months delay in starting railway construc
tion on VancouA'er Island, especially
Avhen the Company had not made a survey
of their oavii and Avas endeavouring to utilise one made by another Company. Most
people, however, Avould think that this
little delay Avas more than counter-balanced
by the announcement that t,AVO hundred
additional iniles of construction Avas contemplated and that the Canadian Northern would be the first Company to realise
the dream of Vancouver Island people, to
have a main line from the nortli to the
south end of the Island. Premier McBride declares on the authority of Mr.
Mackenzie and Mr. Mann that this is hoav
assured and that all their plans will be
directed to that object. He is also authorised to announce that the first section
contracted for in the agreement Avhich
passed the House last session, will be completed a year before the stipulated time.
In view of these facts, it is to be feared
that the English language, elastic and ex-.
pressive though it be, is unable adequately
to describe the attitude of the Victoria
Times, which, even yet, appears to cling
to its cherished notion that the Canadian
Northern is a ramshackle road and MacKenzie and Mann mere fakers.
FREE TRADE AND PROTECTION
The Week has ahvays maintained that
Avhen Sir Wilfrid Laurier came to the
West he Avould learn a thing or two on
the subject of Protection. The lesson is
being administered by the farmers of the
great Western Provinces. On every side
they are .clamouring for loAver duties, and
in most instances declaring themselves in
favour of Free Trade. Not to be outvied, Sir Wilfrid is everywhere proclaiming himself a Free Trader. By the time
he reaches the Coast he will hardly have
a nodding acquaintance Avith Protection
in any form. This Avill not a'cx his soul
because he alleges that he is a life-long
believer in the system Avhich Cobden immortalized. The Week has its oavii vieAvs
on the subject of Protection and takes a
purely academic interest in Sir Wilfrid's
attitude, which makes it all the more interesting to Avatch the trend of events, and
to see Iioav the Premier will square himself with the Eastern manufacturers on
his return from Avhat is rapidly developing into a Free Trade campaign. Every
student of economics has been aware for
some time that the Lion of the East and
tho Lamb of the West could not for ever
lie down together, and that, whenever thc
West came to its oavii, the Eastern manufacturers Avould either have to submit to
an extensiA'e curtailment of their tariff
privileges, or lose the Western market.
Things are moving in thnt direction faster than anyone could hnve anticipated.
There is, especially iu British Columbia,
a rapidly increasing demand for goods of
British manufacture, but the more important development, Avhich is certain to
follow thc avarice of Eastern Canadian
manufacturers, is the groAvth of Western
industries and the production on the spot
of many standard articles Avhich have
hitherto been imported at enormous cost
from Ontario ancl Quebec. The threo
standards of furniture, clothing and shoes
can be manufactured just as well, ancl
cheaper, in British Columbia as in On
tario, and the importation of these soon
will be a thing of the past. Instead of
clamouring against legislation which is
desirable to protect local industries, the
British Columbia agents of Eastern firms
Avould bc better advised to urge their
principals in the direction of more moderate prices, Tlieir rapacity is killing the
goose that lays the golden eggs. THE AVEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 6, 1910
At The Street
Corner
  By THB LOUNOER 	
Quite recently I made a few remarks as to the correct rule for pedestrians when passing each other on
the side-walks, pointing out that "turn
to the right" is correct. I have been
asked to make a few similar remarks
in connection with cyclists, many of
whom are offenders with respect to
the rule of the road and attempt to
pass on the right instead of the left.
That this is excusable sometimes I do
not deny. A large number of visitors
from the United States come to Canada for their holidays; many of them
hire vehicles of some kind or another
and not unnaturally conform to the
rules of their own country. I my
self have found the greatest difficulty, when cycling in France, to remember that I have to put on one
side what I was taught as to road
traffic, and must, when in Rome, do
as the Romans do. People do not, as
a rule, make these mistakes through
"sheer cussedness" but either through
ignorance or forgetfulness. The
British Empire is, I believe, the only
place where passing to the left is observed, and it might therefore be advisable for all garages, livery stables
and cycle stores to have depicted in
plain characters a notice exposed in
a proniinent place to the effect that
the rule of the road is the opposite
to that in the States. Such precautions could do no possible harm to
anybody and might be the means of
averting accidents.

Who is responsible for the four
triangular corners adjoining the Empress Hotel's fine grounds, Humboldt
St., The Causeway and Belleville St.?
I am told that The Empress Hotel
has offered to take them in hand, but
was curtly "turned down." I believe
that The Colonist offered to help in
making them respectable, but their
offer met with a similar fate. I don't
guarantee this. I am repeating what
I hear, which is what I am paid for,
and I am asking questions, a liberty
which any free-born man may take.
At any rate, the corners to which I
refer are in a disgraceful condition. I
was gazing reproachfully at one the
other day. There was a litter of
sticks and a coil of wire on it. A
few old bottles are not infrequently
in evidence. Truly a pleasing sight
for the tourist who has come to marvel at the beauties of Victoria.
* *   *
At the street corner I have heard
bad reports about the state of Graham Street and King's Road on the
Work Estate. I have not paid a
personal visit of inspection, because
it is some distance away and I have
not had the time. It appears to be a
matter of sewerage, a somewhat serious matter during the dog-days and
their followers. On the right hand
side, I am told, is an open sewer; on
the left is a house with a sewer draining into an open field. As I say, I
do not speak from observation, but
from hearsay. At thc same time if I
undertook to inspect all the nuisances
which arc brought to mc from time to
time, I should not have time to write
any of them up, or rather down. 1
trust that my informant was labouring
under a mistake but I doubt it, as I
understand he lives in that neighborhood.
* *   *
I should like to call the attention of
thc local officer of thc R. S. P. C. A.
to the conditions under which the
seal lives at the Japanese Tea-Gardens
at the Gorge Park. Of course, it
may bc a seal with a peculiar constitution, and its doctors may have ordered it a confined water space, and
recommended a good deal of mud in
the daily treatment. Wc know that
mud baths are highly efficacious in
many cases of human sickness and
possibly the same may apply to the
seal tribe. However, to the casual
observer it would seem that the seal
in question is not enjoying thc health
cure, and, in fact, shows every symptom of succumbing to the rigours of
the treatment. In any case, it might
be well for the officer above-mentioned to go and have a look for himself. He is far better qualified to
give an expert opinion than a mere
Lounger, and I sincerely hope that
this will catch the eye of someone
who will bring the matter to his attention. When once that is done, I
feel sure that the seal will have no
further cause for complaint, for he
will either be assured that he is suffering for his own good, or he will
be provided with better quarters.

There are certain streets in Victoria which invariably remind me of
the parable of "The sheep and the
goats." On the one side is a boulevard, green and fairly well kept, on
the other is a rank border of weeds
and dry earth. The sheep, that is the
boulevards, are attended by City employees; the goats are left to look
after themselves. It wouldn't cost
much to attend to the poor little
goats, and if these borders, only
about six inches wide, were to receive
a tenth part of the care which the
boulevards have it would be an im
mense    improvement      from     every
point  of view.
* *   *
The work on Douglas Street has
taken on a new lease of life. On
Wednesday morning last at least
twice as many men were employed
and work started at 7:57 a. m. sharp.
And it was real work too. I don't
pass that way as a rule in the early
morning, but I was met by an enthusiastic citizen about 9:30 who
urged me to go up and see for myself; and I did. And these things
were so. This is the first and distinctly promising result obtained
from allowing the City Engineer a
free hand. May the good work prosper  and also continue.
It was a somewhat curious coincidence that within twenty-four hours
of my remarks as to the driveways
in front of the Parliament Buildings,
when I referred to the bad impression which Sir Wilfrid would receive
unless the Hassam Company were to
"wake up," the Government delivered
an ultimatum to the company, with
the result that within the time above
mentioned extra men were put to
work and there now seems every
probability of the driveways being in
a fit and decent condition by the time
that the Dominion Premier arrives.
But if the Hassam Company could
suddenly find men at such short notice, just because they were forced to,
why couldn't they find them before,
without waiting to have "the screw
put on"?   That is what puzzles the

Oil to Burn
A number of Victoria capitalists
have formed a Company under the
title of The Western Canada Oil
Prospecting Co., Ltd., to search for
oil and gas on lands situated at Muir
Creek, Sooke. The Company has
upwards of 12,000 acres of land and is
on the look-out for coal as well as
oil. The property has been examined and reported by Mr. J. W. Frank
of San Francisco, a gentleman who
has had many years' experience in
California and other States, and who
has been singularly successful in locating oil properties. In his report
Mr. Frank speaks with thc utmost
confidence of thc existence of oil in
paying quantities. A contract hns
been closed with the Murray Drilling Company of Santa Cruz and a
bore-hole is being put down in the
most favourable spot. The capital
of thc Company is moderate and the
price of the shares low, so that thc
general public will havc an opportunity of investing in small amounts
and participating in the profits whicii
it is expected will be realized. The
fact that Messrs. Pooley, Luxton &
Pooley arc the solicitors of the Company will bc sufficient guarantee for
Victorians that its affairs will be
conducted in a satisfactory manner.

/hen WilliamMakepeace Thacker-

world with a procession of such
Iracters as have always existed

Is every character in the book is
limplete study of a certain type of
lian being, it remains for the dram-
It and actor to  produce the vis.*-
conceptions     of     Thackeray's
Iracter studies.   In the play "Becky

Mrs. Fiske in the title role, were
ane accord in their conception of
personality of Becky Sharp, and
undoubtedly portrayed that bril-
It creature as Thackeray intended
litty,    deceitful,    resourceful    and
fcrly    heartless—a     being    whose
liteness and gaiety fail to win one

lof Mrs. Fiske that makes her pos-
le on the stage.

Irine Arnold gave    a    remarkably
ier portrayal of that eccentric old
lilid, and Mabel Reed was good in
Ismail part of the foolish "Briggs",

Jlolbrook   Blinn   as   thc   "Marquis

as when he played "Jim Piatt"
|"Salvation   Nell,"  but  he gave  a
presentation of a very necessary
J rather thankless part. Among the

|So little prominence is assigned to

tedious, but "Whose Baby Are You"
is a screaming farce which made the
tears run down my face and gave me
a pain for several hours afterwards;
I was so convulsed with laughter.
Lewis & Lake may leave Victoria
with the full consciousness that they
have afforded plenty of good, clean,
laughter-provoking amusement to
many hundreds, who would otherwise
have gone home to bed with "that
tired feeling." Good luck to them in
their next venture.
The Majestic Theatre
It seems strange to see an adaptation of one of John Strange Winter's
books on the screen, but that is what
was takeng place last Wednesday
and Thursday at the above house.
"Bootle's Baby," as the book is
known to all; and the films were
a very fair representation on canvas
of what the authoress wrote on
paper.
Romano's Theatre
The feature at Romano's this week
has been the engagement of the
Washington Quartette who have been
singing during the week. Mr. Ernest Petch, a member of the musical
Petch family, has been taking the
place of thc baritone who was unfortunately indisposed and unable to
appear in Victoria, and Mr. Petch
has well sustained the character of
Victoria singers. The quartette is an
excellent one. There have been several excellent films shown, notably
"Her Private Secretary," which at
times reminds one of Charles Reade's
celebrated novel "Foul Play."
The Empress Theatre
It is seldom that I have seen a
more sensational and at the same
time a more interesting drama on
the moving picture screens than that
portrayed at The Empress theatre
last Wednesday night, entitled "Iona,
Thc White Squaw." It is a talc of
Indians, cowboys, a stage hold-up
and, above all, a kidnapped white girl.
To judge from the excited murmurs
of the audience as the story unfolded
itself "Iona" is one of the most popular pieces of its kind ever put before
a Victoria audience. In conclusion I
would call attention to the excellence
of the advertising plates shown between pictures. They are home made
and are of such a quality as should
reap abundant reward for their sub*
cribers.

After a lengthy absence during
which she has not only achieved tremendous artistic fame in this country but has also made a triumphant
tour around the world, Margaret
Anglin, the distinguished actress, will
come to the Victoria Theatre on
Monday, August 8 with her great
success "The Awakening of Helena
Richie," the dramatic version of Margaret Dcland's popular novel of the
same name, rendered for the stage
in four acts by Charlette Thompson.
The production is Miss Anglin's initial venture into thc realm of the
actor-managers and its gratifying
■success first achieved in Philackl-
phia about two years ago, added to
the praise that has been addressed to
her as actress and stage producer,
clearly indicate that Miss Anglin has
made no error in launching out for
herself. When the play was produced in New York in thc early Fall,
thc Philadelphia judgment was endorsed and it was hailed as the lirst
brilliant success of thc season.
Sale of scats begins Friday morning.
New Grand Theatre
For continental finish, smart dressing, thrilling and amazing feats, and
general excellence, the Fassio Trio of
European gymnasts at the Grand
next week are the peers. Thc uninitiated lovers of solid earth cannot but
admire the finesse required by these
people to perform marvelous feats
six feet in the air on a small pedestal,
with a companion balanced on the
head. This troupe has been recently
making a tour of thc country and has
everywhere been a veritable triumph.
One of the classiest vocal acts in
Vaudeville is the Free Setters Four.

a capable soloist and their ensemble
work is quite the best yet heard in
the realms of varieties. Besides making an attractive stage appearance,
they are marvelously well trained and
have a classical finish to their offering that is away from the beaten
track of thc usual Vaudeville quartette.
Latighmakcrs of ingenuity are Williams & Weston, thc German aristocrats, who make their bow to Victoria on Monday. Their dialogue is
rich in humor and Iheir parodies arc
genuine  hits.
Bell & Richards are instrumentalists of rare talent. Their ability as
musicians and the polished manner
in which they present their selections
seem to make their music sound better. The costuming of the act is
gorgeous.
It is the general supposition that
bicycle acts arc very much alike, containing one or two novelties and
much that is dull and hackneyed, but
Grey & Peters, who come next week,
havc a specialty in whicii they have
steered well away from the pitfall.
Their daring and sensational feats are
offered with grace and elegance and
the comedy, by a lugubrious individual, furnishes clever relief to thc expert  work of his partner.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Maurice Hewlett
BY BOHEMIAM
Maurice Hewlett has written a
round dozen books, all of which are
readable and most of which are entertaining. He is a thinker and somewhat of a stylist. "The Queen's
Quair," "The Life and Death of
Richard Yea and Nay" and his several books on Tuscany are his best
productions. He writes good English, has a I ouch of philosophy and
more than a suggestion of George
Meredith; at any rate a sufficient
soupcon of his manner to show that
he is a disciple. His last book,
"Open Country" he calls a "comedy
with a sting"; it is a comedy assuredly, but the sting is not very
much in evidence. It is chiefly interesting for the dissertations of a
tramp, and the most interesting cf
these dissertations is a chapter from
"The Tramp's Testament." The
tramp calls himself a "poor fool''; he
is hardly that unless it be in respect
of his desire to set the world right
on tlie subject of marriage. He probably states the case for the advocates
of some up-to-date substitute for
marriage rather better than has been
done before, which is not to say that
the argument is likely to make any
impression on a sane and well-balanced mind. In this day of universal
agitation for a slackening of the marriage tie it is not the part of prudence to shut one's eyes to the movement, or to the grounds upon whicii
it is advocated. But since the tramp's
dissertation leads him to eschew
marriage and become a monk, it is
obvious that he reaches an impasse
from which there is no escape, and if
the race is to survive some other solution must be found. The following
extract from "the tramp's testament"
will be appreciated by all who have
made Maurice Hewlett's acquaintance, and possibly by a few who have
not:
"Ask any woman you please which
was the happiest time of her life, she
will tell you—the year of her betrothal. Ask any man, he will tell
you—his bachelor days. What do
these things mean? It is worth while
finding out. That which should be
the perfecting of the nature of either,
when the two human hemispheres,
as Plato puts it, are one rounded
whole again, does not in cither case
result in happiness. Contentment,
perhaps, but not happiness. Marriage, then, is not the happy state.
How then?
"It is not, and cannot be, as it is
now ordered; for thc notion of possession, of property once more, has
entered in and vitiated it. It has
poisoned thc nature of man and degraded the conscience of woman.
Women are not, it may bc, angels
before marriage, but it is certain
that they should not bc property afterwards. Hut since, by virtue of a
legal contract, they are technically
so, a man is so made by tradition
nnd proncness to possess that hc will
consider her so, even against his
own judgment, even despite his own
honour; and thc moment he believes
himself secure of her he will cease
to serve her. Now, to love a woman,
in my belief, is not only to desire her.
Much more it is to bc allowed to
serve her. Thc better part of loving
is the need to give, not thc desire to
receive. In a perfect union of hearts
and bodies thc rivalry is not who
shall get, but who shall spend the
more. There should bc no end to
that noble strife—nor will there be
on thc woman's part; nor need there
bc on the man's if he is always to
be blessed. Poisoned man is thc banc
of marriage, not woman. It is natural  for  a  woman  to  mate,  natural

to a man to master. But unless we
curb that brute instinct in the man
there can be no real happiness for
the woman.
"As for me I will never marry as
the law now stands. I will not enslave any woman. To put into my
hands legal instruments whereby I
am secure in her so long as she is
worth my while, and be free of her
the moment she does what it is my
right, as a man, to do; so to treat
the woman in whose eyes I have seen
heaven, to whose heart I go for
peace, is to insult me by the suspicion
that I can so insult her. I will
never do it, Sanchia. I'll become a
monk first.
"What's to be done, then? I have
nothing heroic to suggest. If I go
maimed through life, an unrounded
hemisphere, I'll hobble along, my
conscience clear, at least. Ancl perhaps "Patience and shuffle the cards"
is as good a roadside saw as any
other. There are signs that the accursed old system is breaking up—
signs on all sides. Reasonable persons have long lifted their eyebrows
and now are beginning to lift their
voices. So the time may be coming
when they can lift up their hearts.
It was expedient once, we read, that
one man should die for the people.
It is doubtless necessary that there
should be frequent crucifixions. It
seems to be the way of the world. A
man to whom the truth is blazed as
clear as noon goes out into the
streets filled to the lips with his revelation. Smug citizens avoid him,
put up their shutters, and lock their
doors; dogs bark at his heels; the
ribald gather; one throws a stone.
Then comes the storm upon him, in
the which he falls, battered, bleeding t
with glazed eyes? There's an end of
the blasphemer who dares to ques-1
tion established order, who says thatl
use and wont are not sacred at all,
but hoary in iniquity.
"Having slain him they learn that
he was a god, and his revelation a
law of nature. Up goes a statue, and
his words are read as gospel. That's!
how we get on in this quaint world,]
climbing to the stars on the heaped j
bodies of our heroes and sages. It's]
no use quarrelling with it, Whether'
I am to trample or be trampled,!
teach me, Sanchia, not to complain.")

Big Circus at Vancouver
Announcement is made that on Saturday, Aug. 20, thc Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth will visit
Vancouver. This is the best news of
the clay to those who arc fond of thc
circus form of amusement. For
fifty-five years this has been thc leading show of thc world. This year it
comes forth with an entire new
equipment which cost the management $3,500,000.
The main performance is given in
three rings, on two stages, on an immense Roman race track and in the
dome. The climax of thc program
is the appalling performance of Desperado, a mad Frenchman, who leaps
from thc dome of thc tent and lands
on his bare chest. Additional thrills
are given by Jupiter, a pure-white
Arabian horse. It rides to the dome
of the tent in a balloon ancl descends
amid a Niagara of exploding rockets
and fireworks. Then there is Charlie
the First, beyond all question the
most remarkable animal that ever
came to the notice of scientists. Charlie the First is merely a chimpanzee,
but he has become the greatest bicycle rider and acrobat in the world.
He does an act on one of the stages
that is the wonder of the age.
In the menagerie is found the most
remarkable zoological exhibit ever
seen outside of the interior of the
African jungle. It is Bumbino, the
first and only baby giraffe ever born
or exhibited in America. Only once
before in history has the stork visited the giraffe pen of a captive zoo
of animals. Tbat event happened
over fifty years ago in London, England. The youngster died before it
could be placed on exhibition. Bumbino is only three feet tall, less than
one-seventh of its mother's height.
The youngster is worth its weight in
gold.
On the list of performers are the
names of 400 of thc world's most talented performers. The new parade
is a marvel of interest. It is a panorama of a thousand wonders. There
are three miles of it. Here is an opportunity for the people of Vancouver and Victoria and vicinity to see
the greatest circus ever organized.
The railroads will lower the rates of
fare ancl special excursions will bc
run.

Roman Relics Found
While excavating in the Basford
district, Nottinghamshire, for the
purpose of laying a gas main, one of
the corporation workmen hit upon a
rough earthenware vase, and accidentally smashed it. Inside the vessel was found another jar of similar
design, which contained about sixty
coins, of silver and bronze. One of
the coins bears the head of the Emperor Vespasian, who reigned from
A. D. 69-79. Another coin bears the
head of Marcus Aurelius, who died in
A. D. 182. Another of the coins has
a figure representing Africa on the
reverse side, and is inscribed with the
name of that continent.
Order of Merit
The King has made the following
appointments to the Order of Merit:
Sir William Crookes, F.R.S.
Mr. Thomas Hardy.
Mr. Hardy replaces George Meredith and Sir William Crookes the
late Sir William Huggins.
Mr. Thomas Hardy, poet ancl novelist, the sole survivor of the great
Victorian writers, celebrated his sev-
cntiethentieth birthday last month.
He witnessed at Covent Garden last
week the operatic version of "Tess,"
his great novel. Sir William Crookes
born in 1832, has discovered new elements, new theories like that of radiant matter, made possible the electric incandescent lamp, paved the
way for the discovery of Roentgen-
rays, and stimulated the extraction
of nitrogen from the air to grow the
wheat  the world needs.
Famous Herd Extinct
The last surviving member of the
once thriving herd of Chartley cattle
is dead, and, thanks to the generosity
of Colonel Coifgrcve, its remains have
been presented to the British Museum of Natural History. This herd,
which dates back some six ancl a half
centuries, was formed when Henry
III. gave permission to the Lords
Ferrers to enclose a number of the
wild white cattle from the Royal
Forest of Needwood; and here, until
the middle of the last century, these
semi-wild animals lived ancl throve.
Then tubercle was introduced, and
from that date onward the herd began to decline, till in 1905 only seven
remained. Five of these were purchased by the Duke of Bedford, and
turned clown at Woburn, but the insidious disease continued its ravages
ancl finally exterminated the race.
Wet Holidays
It is now possible, for thc first
time, to obtain compensation at
Lloyd's for having one's holidays
spoiled by rain—a new departure induced by the persistently wet weather which has so far marked the greater portion of the present' holiday
season.
Underwriters are prepared to insure proposers against one-tenth of
an inch of rain falling on more than
two days a week during their holidays
af any towns on the south and east
coasts between Bournemouth and
Scarborough where the daily rainfall
is officially published or satisfactory
records can be obtained.
For a premium of 7s. 6d., covering
seven days, compensation would bc
paid at the rate of 10s. per clay on
excess of two wet days, while a
premium of 10s. insures against an
excess of four wet days in a fortnight. But of the one-tenth of an inch
of rain—the quantity which constitutes a "wet" day of twenty-four
hours—the greater portion must fall
during the day time.
Guns for Irishmen
It comes with something of a shock
to hear that the Government are distributing firearms to Irishmen. A
circular issued from thc headquarters
of the Royal Irish Constabulary to
the local constables begins as follows:
"The Irish Government has approved of formal notice being given
to such of the owners, or their legal
representatives, of arms and ammunition surrendered under the Peace
Preservation Acts of 1881 and 1886,
and still held by the constabulary, as

PROHIBITION
Two Englishmen travelling in the U. S. arrived at a
Prohibition State and were soon discussing the question
of how to obtain a bottle of champagne. "I say, Jim,"
said one, "let's ask the police officer." "Follow me," said
the constable, ancl he conducted them in and out and
round about until they stood in front of the cathedral.
The travellers looked at each other in astonishment.
"Surely, my goocl man," said one of them, "you do not
mean to tell us that we can obtain what we want in a
church?" "You sec the church, do you?" asked the policeman solemnly. "Yes," assented thc two. Well, that is
the only place in this State where you can't get it."
Fortunately in B. C. one doesn't have to stoop to
underhand methods. The best champagne, G. H. Mumm's,
is listed at all the good hotels, bars and clubs. Any
dealer can supply you for home use. 'Tis well, however,
to specify "Extra Dry" or "Selected Brut" ancl to see that
the bottle carries the pink capsule or bears the signature
"G. H. Mumm & Co.," then you have the purest and best
champagne obtainable. Pither ancl Leiser, wholesale
agents for B.C.—Victoria, Vancouver ancl Nelson.

the Provincial Government would wish to

if the Act has this effect there will be no
difficulty in securing the necessary amendments. The opinion of The Week is that

The Attorney General has announced

THE WATER QUESTION
The Week ventured to suggest that it
would be a waste of time to ask the Esquimalt Water Works Company to name a
price for its holdings. Probably the Committee thought the same, but deemed it
advisable to leave no stone unturned in the
attempt to secure a settlement. The Company has asked $2,000,000; it is rumoured that the City will offer $1,750,000.
Tliis price will not be accepted, nor is
there any reason why it should bc. It,
represents no more than the additional
expenditure which has been made by the
Company since the last price was fixed.
The upshot will he as it should be—arbitration—by the result of which both thc
City and the Company will have to abide,
and the arbitration will be conducted on
the lines laid down in the legislation of
last session. The trend of events, the
steady increase of population, the scarcity
of water, as evidenced by the burnt lawns
and boulevards all over tho city, and the
activity of the Esquimalt Water Works
Company have forced public opinion to the
inevitable conclusion that the holdings of
that. Company must be acquired. Further
MEAN STREETS
A reader of The AVeek thought that it
was inexcusable to appropriate Arthur
Morrison's well-known title and apply it
to Victoria streets. Technically the criticism is correct for the meanness of whicii
Morrison wrote had no relation to dust,
except in the sense of dusty characters, or
shady people. But if there is anything
really meaner than the dust whicli whirls
about the unpaved streets of Victoria the
Editor of The Week has no desire to make
its acquaintance. The City Engineer, if
left alone, will gradually reduce the area
in which the sirocco flourishes, Every day
a few square yards are added to the paved
roadways, and paved roadways plus water
arc death to dust. Calcium chloride has
been proved, both in England and France
to be the hest remedy for laying the dust,
on unpaved roads. Oil is objectionable in
many ways and it is to be hoped tliat the
chemical will be generally adopted in Victoria. Whilst, on the subject of pavement
The AVeek ventures again to utter a word
of warning against a too general adoption
of asphalt. It is true that the Worswick
Company has made an excellent job on
Linden Avenue, but wait till the rain
comes and it will he as much as a heavy
team can do to haul a load of coal or
wood between Fort Street and Dallas
Road. It cannot be too widely known that
after twenty-five years trial asphalt stands
discredited in thc leading English cities.
It is cheap, clean and eyeable, but ils
slipperiness is past remedy,
BATTLEDORE AND SHUTTLECOCK
The history of Arictoria furnishes few
funnier incidents than that depicted in
The AVeek cartoon of the current issue.
It may be that the sensational features
of the incident have been exaggerated, but
the fact remains that only AV. G. Gilbert
at his best could do justice to an affair
which has tickled the risibilities of every-
'one who heard of it. Just fancy a Senator and two Cabinet Ministers making an
appointment with an Indian Chief at the
Empress Hotel! The great ones got tired
of waiting and started on a "joy ride."
Within a few minutes of the lapse of the
hour within which the historic interview
was to be held, the Chief arrives, politely
leaves his visiting card and departs, no
doubt, greatly relieved at being spared the
formality of an interview. Later on the
"joy riders" and the Chief meet. One
prominent citizen steps down and invites
the Chief to enter the chariot, whilst, a
.Minister acocsts him in'the "hail fellow
well met" style, which cost the Minister
his A'ictoria seat. But tlie Chief will
neither be wheedled nor wooed, and he
hands the exuberant Minister the "mitt,"
or perhaps, to be thoroughly up to date,
it would bc more correct to say "a lemon."
Surely the illustrious party lacked a sense
of humor or they would never have placed
themselves in such a position. It is quite
certain that no insult was intended to be
offered to the Chief, but it is singularly
unfortunate that his uncultured mind
should so have interpreted the situation.
When tlie Songhees Reserve has ceased to
he a shuttlecock, bandied from one political battledore to another, it* may be possible to effect a settlement. But this will
only be brought about by men who have
some knowledge of human [nature and
some tact. 10

Many August Weddings Are on the Tapis
Therefore it is not amiss perhaps to say that the first essential towards good housekeeping is an up-to-date Gas Cooking Apparatus.   The benedict-to-
be should see that his bride will experience the joy of a stove that is always ready, an oven that is always right and a heat that can be regulated scientifically.   Wisdom in this because it will save money, time and trouble.
A Gas Range means that one can cook any meal
of the day, summer or winter, with ease and comfort. Let one of our men set up a Gas Stove or
Range in your kitchen and you will find that you
have the most modern and convenient cooking
equipment of the age. The cost of its maintenance
is far less than fuel for a coal range.
We would like all Victorian near-future-benedicts-to-be to call here at our new Salesroom on
Yates Street, and inspect our unrivalled stock of
Gas Ranges, Gas Stoves, Gas Radiators, Gas Water
Heaters, etc. Every one warranted to be as we

thc distinction of making thc trip in

YACHTING NOTES
B. C. Poultry Association
The announcement is sent out from
the department of agriculture at Victoria that there will be a meeting of
all thc poultrymen of British Columbia on Aug. 18 at the convention hall,
for the purpose of considering the
organization of the British Columbia
Poultry Association and the adoption of a constitution and by-laws.
Stated in a few words thc chief aims
and objects of the British Columbia
Poultry Association is "Better Poultry and more of it." The field of
work will engage every poultry interest. It will seek to disseminate
throughout the province a thorough
knowledge of the latest and most progressive methods of rearing and caring for domestic fowls. Its particular
mission will bc to secure a more
widespread interest in thoroughbred
poultry.
Thc chief agencies to bc used in
the furtherance of this object will
bc the poultry show and it is expected that the Poultry Association will
hold an annual provincial show.
In view of thc inaccurate statements in the daily papers concerning
the Victoria Yacht Club, the readers
of these notes are assured that the
information contained therein is authentic and gathered from the most
reliable source.
As there seems to be some confusion of the Macneill and Alexandra
Cups, the following explanation may
be welcomed by the uninitiated. The
Macneill Cup was presented by Commodore Macneill of the Vancouver
Yacht Club for yachts in the eighteen
foot class. As there was only one
entry for the last regatta the race was
called off, but it is hoped that next
season will find more entries in this
class.
The Alexandra Cup was presented
by Hon. James Dunsmuir, and was
raced for by the "Spirit" of Seattle
and the "Alexandra" owned by Captain Deane of Vancouver and designed by Fife. This Cup, which represents yachting supremacy in the Pacific North West is now held by thc
Alexandra.
lt is probable that some member or
members of the V. Y. C. will come
forward with an offer tn build a
Challenger for thc Alexandra Cup, to
be ready for the International Meeting next year, but at the present time
the matter is quite indefinite. In
view of the manner in which the Victoria Yacht Club has come to the
fore this season it is felt that Victoria
should have a Challenger to make a
bid for  thc coveted trophy.
The Victoria Yacht Club held a
meeting of the Managing Committee
on the 2nd of August to receive and
pass the accounts of the International
Regatta. The financial statement
proved very satisfactory, and the
Club is entitled to congratulations all
round on thc success of the regatta.
Arrangements are being made for a
series of local races as there are a
few handsome prizes on hand which
were not competed for at the last ]
gatta.
A handsome cup has been presenJ
to the Club by I. Kirkpatrick to ;
raced for by local motor boats,
the event is likely to prove very
teres ting.
A Club Cruise  has been arrang
for   August   13th,   destination
Esquimalt  Harbour, probably Thel
Cove or thereabouts, thus    ensurif
oysters for supper and   salmon
breakfast.
On the Saturdays following Augt|
