THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1908
pening the
timpaign.
Tin' Conservatives of \' ictoria opened tlieir electoral
campaign
on
Thursday
night with a meeting which
s held in the North Ward School. There
as no beating of drums nor any great
purish of trumpets, nor was tliere any
, but there was an enthn-
astic gathering, and a business-like and
•ofitable discussion of the issues.   Presi-
jjiit Barnard made au excellent address,
[vering the whole ground with reference
the chances of the Conservative Party
he forthcoming election,    lie had no
llieiilty in showing that the boast of the
berals that they possessed the undiniin-
_.onfidence of the country  because
ey had won all the by-elections was en-
■ely misleading, since an analysis of the
turns showed that in every instance but
ie   their  previous  majorities  had  been
Jormously reduced.   If tbe Liberals have
1 stronger start' than this to lean on they
undoubtedly trusting to a broken reed.
I ..." ,
III the chief interest of the meeting ceiled in the broader issues which were
vy temperately discussed, and thc lines
mn which lhe campaign will be con-
cied- in this Province were clearly de-
I K><1. The Week long ago pointed out
al, apart altogether from its joint iu-
■est with the other Provinces in Federal
Iestioris, .British Columbia had an ac-
1111I uf its own to settle with the Laurier
Iministration. Thai account traverses
four years' delay in commencing eon-
uction work from the Coast on the
'and Trunk Pacilic; it covers the un-
npi'oiuising attitude of Sir Wilfrid and
advisers on the subject of Oriental Immigration; and it covers their coiitcinptii-
treatineiit of thc demand for some-
g which could be honestly called
Jietter Terms." When Mr. Templeman
Is satisfied the constituencies that in all
ese matters the Ottawa Government has
it. nn attentive and sympathetic ear to
Jemands of the Province he will then
time to meet the charges of mal-ad-
luistration, extravagant expenditure, in-
sashig taxation,
flooding  of  Canadian
lirkets   with American goods,
  and  the
Ivelopment of Mr. Fielding's patriotic
referential tariff" under whicli the hn-
•tntion of American goods into Canada
5 increased in more than double the
|tio of the importation of English goods,
it for the action of the Provincial Gov-
niieiit and the agreement which they
icluded with Mr. Wainwrighl last
ring it is doubtful if even yet a com-
•iieeiiient would have been made on the
and Trunk Pacific Construction in P.
li is certain that wiihoiit thai agree-
■nt 1 here would hnve been 110 protection
the Province either for its labouring
■ii or for its merchants. Any activity to-
y on this system between Prince Rupert
Id the Alberta Boundary is due to the
itesman-like agreement concluded by M r.
cBride, and not to any interest in the
itter shown by the Laurier Government,
en yet, as one of the speakers pointed
It, the actual route has not been deter-
Ined from the Skeena to the Yellow Head
[iss, little or nothing is being done in the
.timat  Valley.     The   only   activity   is
iere activity would be most conspicuous
[at the Coast, and there are not a few
think .that this activity is suspicious
Iice it only takes place on the eve of the
ictions.    There would be a great deal
[> confidence in its ''bona fides" if it
|re more widespread, and if it were less
ertised.   With reference to tbe Oriental
I migration question it is not at the 1110-
■nt acute, and no doubt Mr. Templeman
EDITORIAL
and his supporters will claim on the hustings that it has been settled for all time
by Mr. Lemieux and Mr. Drury, but iu
\ ictoria at any rate it will be difficult
to secure credence for sueh a contention.
Mr. Drury is an excellent citizen, but it
remained for the Japanese Aiission to
prove that he is a Heaven-Born Statesman
and among Victorians the conclusion is
not accepted. They prefer to recall tho
fact that Sir Wilfrid Laurier twice declined the suggestion of the Britisli Government to insert a clause in the Japanese
treaty which would have effectually prevented Japanese immigration; that the
same Sir Wilfrid, in opposition to the advice of Mr. Chamberlain, refused to legis-
late for Chinese exclusion on the lines of
the Natal Act; and that once more when
the riot occurred in Vancouver and the
whole question was debated at Ottawa he
declared that he was* "not in sympathy
with the views of British Columbia on the
subject of Oriental Immigration." Mr.
Templeman would have the electors believe that "BETTER TERMS" is not au
issue, and that the Federal Government
has solved the question by making a peppercorn grant of $100,000 a year for ten
years. Mr. Templeman has made many
mistakes, being as he declares "not a politician," but he never made a greater mistake than this. Mr. Barnard stated last
night that as long as .Mr. .McBride leads
tbe Conservative party in British Columbia "Better Ternis" will be a live* issue. He
might: have snid more, that if the question
is not satisfactorily disposed of during Mr.
McBride's leadership it will be kept alive
by bis successors until substantial justice
has been done, it is not necessary to discuss the subject at the moment, it is thoroughly understood, and the mind of the
public is made up. The answer of B. G.
to Sir Wilfrid's contemptuous treatment
was given at the last Provincial election
and public sentiment is just as determined
on the matter as then. The Province is
si ill twenty million dollars to tlie bad in its
financial dealings with Ottawa, and the
tight for fair treatment will go on until
Mr. McBride's demands are conceded. The
Asiatic question is not the only one on
whicli Sir Wilfrid Laurier is out of sympathy with the Province. Aud what of
lhe "Solid Seven?" Hereafter they
should be known as the "silent seven,"
who snt 'mum" when vital questions affecting lhe welfare of the Province wi<\v.
under debate and cried out for some living
voice to <>ive them utterance. The Times
thinks that the campaign should bc one of
"scandal and vituperation," and it has set
1111 example by resuming its old role and
vilifying .Mr. McBride, Mr. Green and
Mr. Bowser, in its first editorial utterances. If that is its conception of the requirements of the situation it will have
an opportunity to plough its "lonely furrow." The Conservatives will not be diverted by any such mud-slinging device
from the real issues of the conflict, and in
them will be found sufficient justification
for deposing a corrupt administration unfaithful to its pledges and incompetent in
its management of public affairs.
The Week directs attention
to two important communications which will be
found in the Correspondence column of current issue.   The first is
The Water
Question.

One Dollar Per Annum
a copy of the letter addressed to the City
Council by the Esquimall Waterworks
( ompany iu 1905 to which 11 brief reference was made last week. The oilier is
a letter from our well known citizen, Mr.
F. Angus, who has all along taken a great,
interest in the water question and has contributed much to its elucidation in the.
public press. The facts cannot be loo often
repeated nor too strongly emphasized that
up to date no'steps have been taken which
bring nearer a permanent solution of the
wafer problem, or which give any assurance that an adequate source of supply will
be secured. The second fact is that the
larger mains now being installed will not
increase, the quantity of water available
for use but will simply accomplish its distribution and bring about its exhaustion
more quickly. Reading between the lines
it is not, difficult fo see that a movement is
on foot for purifying the watershed which
drains into Elk Lake hy buying up the
farmers of that district. This will be au
excellent thing for the fanners, and as long
as the ratepayers of the Cily of \ ictoria
are willing to regard the project in a
philanthropic aspect it must be considered
an admirable arrangement; but as a contribution to .the solution of the water problem it can hardly be regarded as a stroke
of genius. Does the council propose to
make any further move in this matter'*;
If so when'. These questions are asked
in the interest of people who are beginning
to find life in Victoria almost intolerable
during the dry season.
The Colonist devoted Iwo
Spying and columns of editorial and a
Lying- column and a half of read
ing space iu its issue of
Thursday last to a discussion of "British
Columbia Misrepresented." The motive
was good, the method adopted bad. Even
on its own showing the Colonist went the
wrong way about doing the right thing.
Some greenhorn had pnid a visit to the
Province, lured by specious advertisements, expecting to find its streets paved
with gold, and peaches groAving by the,
way-side. Because he hnd fo go up North
to search for gold he did not find anil in
lhe process got several had mosquito biles
nnd wet feet, hc went home and gave to
the Yorkshire Post a lying nud scurrilous
report of the Province. The Colonist reproduced his report verbatim, thereby giving it general circulation, and proceeded
in two columns of editorial to prove that
it was false. This was quite unnecessary
—first because the letter was so extravagant and self-contradictory that no sane
Englishman who read it would believe it;
the second reason is, that a very well-
known nud influential Englishman, -Mr.
W. Ingham Brooke, of Harrogate, promptly replied in the Yorkshire Post and his
reply administered the quietus to "Prospector's" charges. There can be no two
opinions as to the folly of reprinting such
a mad effusion, -even for the purpose of
criticism. The amusing pari of the matter is that the editor criticised a paragraph
relating to the epidemics of measles, typhoid, diphtheria and scarlet fever which
did not appear in the "Prospector's" let
ter. This no doubt is a case..of mind-reading, or perhaps "Prospector" intended to
sny something on this subject and conveyed his intention to the editor of lhe
Colonist by a "wave thought."' lt would
have been a wiser criticism to have endorsed lhe letter of Mr. Brooke and at the
same time lo have pointed out that "Prospector" wns not altogether to blame since
he wns misled, ns thousands 01 Englishmen have been nnd are si ill being misled,
bv the lying extravagant statements with
respect to Cnnndn which nre circulated iu
the British Press, nnd by means of
pamphlets, through the Agency of Canadian Government Officials. It has been
proved again and again that these men
care solely for inducing emigrants to leave
tlieir native land for Canada; they simply
want to count up so many bends. They
care nothing what happens afterwards nnd
they systematically misrepresent conditions in order to influence immigration.
While there is no defence for such a ridiculous nnd misleading letter as that written by "Prospector," there is even, less defense for the methods too generally adopted
by Canadian Emigration Agents.
The Liberal Parly iu Vnn-
The World couver, and possibly further
Forgetting.       afield, would fain forget the
World. Aot be it understood this mundane sphere with its men
and women, its worries and its joys, but
its erstwhile particular friend, the ' Vancouver World." Never was a paper apparently so much in earnesl in defence of
the Liberal Government. Laurier could
do no wrong, Borden and McBride could
noi even bv working; overtime do anything
right. The venomous attack of ihe World
upon a well-known Conservative minister
landed its proprietors in the Courts. If is
unnecessary to trace its delicate manipulation of personality in connection with other
provincial affairs, but if ever a Canadian
paper nppenred to be moved by conviction
it was the "World" and now without warning it has switched round and will henceforth devote ils pages to the undoing of iis
work of the lasl ten years and to gelling
even with the gang of Vancouver Boodlers
who have finally succeeded in alienating
every newspaper nnd almosl every voter
from lhe Liberal Party, ii is a spectacle
for lhe gods thi.-. defection of the World
and all thai ii menus. Only a shorl time
ago nnd Hob Kelly ruled the World, that
is ihe World of patronage which centred
iu ihe Terminal Cily, now "none so poor
to do him reverence." It really begins lo
look as if some Eastern methods cannot be
successfully planted in Western soil. It is
certain that the political "boss" is a sorry
creature who lacks restrainl nud if given
enough rope will always hang himself. He
is like the horse-leech, witli ihis difference
thai ihe latter does sometimes gel filled up,
lhe former never has enough; and it is
ihis perpetual over-reaching which finally
alienates even his own supporters and invites disaster. The reign of the Vancouver gang bas been brief; il can hardly be
termed glorious; in any case il has ended
nnd the men without whose permission
one hardly dared draw breath of late years
will hnve lo abandon "high finance" and
return lo their counters. Possibly the very
system which lhey represented has received 11 solar-plexus blow. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1908.

nl THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1908
lie Water Question.
eprinted    from    The    Week    of
August 29th,  by  request.;
Vhen the rain comes people forget
the nonce all about the water
estion, and possibly the same thing
curs with the City Council, for
ich reason it may not be out of
ce to remind all and sundry that
relief afforded by rain is just as
lporary as that which is aimed at
the expenditure of money at Elk
ke. That the Council is convinced
t Goldstream is the only satisfac-
y source of supply is fairly well
deuced by their long continued ef-
t to secure, it, and by the fact
t the Mayor wrote an open letter
the Provincial Government asking
m to secure and make a present of
to the City. As long ago as thc
h of August, 1905, the Secretary o)
Esquimalt Waterworks Company
ered to supply water to the City
the following rates:—For the first
ion gallons daily two cents per
usand gallons; for the second mil-
n gallons  one  and  one-half cents
thousand; for the third million
Ions, one-half cent, per thousand;
any excess over five million gal-
s per day up to but not exceeding
een million gallons, free. The com-
ly offered to contract on these
ms for twenty years, renewable if
City desired it for another fifty
irs. The Week doubts whether the
_lic has not long ago forgotten this
:r, otherwise it is not easy to un-
stand why it has been allowed to
The fact has not been sufficiently
phasized that if Sooke Lake should
adopted as the source of supply,
vould be necessary to purchase and
.opulate a large tract of country
order to guard against contamin-
>n, whereas the Goldstream water-
d is practically uninhabitable, and
itamination is ' almost impossible,
mtcd that the present expenditure
>n larger mains is necessary in any
nt, and would be available for thc
tribution of water from whatever
rce obtained, it is none the less
h necessary and urgent that a per-
ent source should be speedily de-
:d upon. The lapse of time be-
_ any new supply could be made
ilable is the factor which seems to
e received insufficient attention
n the Council.
chase the entire holdings of the company.
2. The answer to this question
was: Subject to the ratification . by
the necessary three-fourths vote of
the shareholders, the directors think
that the sum of $1,271,000 would be
accepted, and they suggested that they
thought the consent of the shareholders could be obtained to leave
the matter of purchase optional with
the city for a period of any desired
number of years (not exceeding twenty) at the price stated, but that if
not purchased within four years from
date, 2 per cent, annually after the expiration of four years should be added
to the ultimate purchase price; and
also, that any addition to the holdings of, or any improvements or installations for the conveying, storing,
or delivering of the waters to any
consumer during the life of the option, should be paid for by the city
at cost when ultimately availing itself of the option to purchase.
In reference to the sale of the Esquimalt and Thetis Lake property by
itself (including the works at Victoria West), the directors are convinced that such a proposition would
not be sanctioned by the shareholders.
This letter is "without prejudice"
and is intended as an outline merely
of the company's views, and if the
proposition is entertained it will have
to be put on a formal basis, and be
accompanied by a proper contract
with all'necessary provisions.
Yours faithfully,
(Sgd.) T. LUBBE,
Secretary.

To the Editor.
The papers lately have had wonderful accounts of steam and electric
engines for pumping water. What is
it all about? A farmer who keeps
quite a lot of cows on the banks of
Elk Lake tells me they are intended
for pumping water out of the lake
to supply the city, and it is reported
that the city intends to buy out all
the "Plateau" to prevent anything offensive getting into the lake. Of
course he rubs his hands when he
considers the price he will get for his
land. The farmer talks about protein
in food for cattle and his immense
host of chickens and I daresay knows
more of the danger of spreading typhoid amongst the consumers of the
water than 99 out of every 100 Victorians.
Well, the promoters of this scheme
are chiefly, I understand, Mr. William
Wilson and Mr. Paterson, who some
time ago stood for Mayor of the city
but was defeated. For those who
think that it would be wise to get
water from a safer source this is
formidable opposition.
Of Mr. Wilson's energy, I have a
good story: He and his late wife
lived most happily together, so much
so that Mrs. Wilson in the greatest
good humour used to say, if her husband said cabbages ought to be
planted with their leaves down and
their roots in the air it had to be
done. This reminds me of a celebrated couple, Mrs. Carlyle and her
husband. No woman was prouder
of her husband and no husband admired his wife more than he, so much
so that they found it a sort of relaxation to talk of each others peculiarities. Mr. Wilson is 1 believe a Londoner, but hc may have blood of the
same race flowing in his veins as the
celebrated Carlyle had. I have oftener sided with Mr. Wilson than
opposed him and anyone can see what
a tower of strength it is to have Mr.
Wilson on your side. But when it
comes to cabbages!
Then as to Mr. Paterson, I spoke
to several people as to his being on
the opposition side, every one of them
spoke in complimentary terms of him
although they regretted that he was
on that side. When he was a candidate for the mayoralty I voted for
him, although I knew he did not in
this matter please me. In thc same
way as I suggested Mr. Todd to be
one of say three to consider the question of water supply for the city. I
know that either of them, if supplied
with facts would do what they considered safe and prudent. Within the
last few days I spoke to two ex-aldcr-
men    and  each    of them    expressed

themselves quite certain that because
the Esquimalt Company could not
supply fifteen million gallons per day
to the Car Company, they were therefore unable to supply any to the city.
One of them expressed himself so delighted with Mr. Barnard's scheme
when he was mayor. We have been
fighting for the waste water for three
years and I suppose some of our present aldermen may understand the situation as well or as badly as these
two did. Some gentlemen here think
we ought to secure the whole of the
Goldstream company's property; why
I never could see. When the question of ownership was before the
Courts this was never raised. The
reason is perhaps answered by a decision in the English Courts. Liverpool secured some water rights on a
watershed which appeared to naturally belong to three small towns, thc
Court gave Liverpool a right to the
water they wanted but imposed a condition that Liverpool should hold six
million gallons for three small towns
on the route. This was burdensome
to Liverpool and they appealed to be
relieved; Liverpool's request was
granted on the g/ound that these
small towns had already gone elsewhere for water and by doing so had
annihilated their claim on Liverpool.
Is not this very like our case here
and does it not look common sense.
I understand Victoria sent a surveyor
to Goldstream to report; he reported
against Goldstream and Victoria afterwards selected Elk ake as preferable. An alderman once made a
speech advising the city not to take
a small quantity of water in case it
should injure their statutory right to
five million gallons. Their right is
all gone already.
I know and say without the least
reserve, that the Mayor will withdraw
his evil thoughts about the Gold-
stream company (if he ever had them)
when he finds the city has had no
legal claim since they selected Elk
Lake for our water supply. No mention of this claim was made in London when the case was on. One
Judge remarked in a sort of aside "you
want to  steal other people's water."
Mr. Lubbe is the cleverest and most
experienced water expert in the city.
He says: "If they take Goldstream
water our reservoir is sufficient." Thc
Smith Hill reservoir has only 200 feet
pressure when it is full, I think; the
Goldstream reservoir, besides being
very much larger, has over 400 feet
pressure which can be regulated to
suit. It might save a large sum of
money to stop operations both on
Smith's Hill and on the Salt Water
System—till after the election—Victoria can only think of one subject at
a time. 1 am perhaps repeating some
things, but for a large community
you cannot repeat too often. So
many people don't stop to think.

A well known citizen of Victoria,
after complimenting me on the practical benefits which lie claims have
resulted from the pillorying of public
nuisances in this column, asked me if
I would take up a matter whicli had
caused him considerable annoyance
and which he has noticed to be of frequent occurrence on our streets. It
is the habit which men have of butting- into a conversation.
Two men may be earnestly talking,
often on an important business matter, when up comes a third, deliberately stands within earshot, and at
the lirst break in the conversation
sails in with his own business. I
think any well bred person will agree
that tliis is a gross breach of good
maimers and one which, while out of
place anywhere, should hardly be expected in Victoria.
The habit is no doubt to some extent attributable to our fine climate
which makes conversation on the
street a matter of convenience during
the greater part of the year, but this
should not justify any departure from
the ordinary amenities of life, and 1
cannot but think that giving voice
to the complaint of my friend is fully
justified by the circumstances.
1 am quite aware that a reform
wave is sweeping over the civilized
world; at the present time its effects
arc especially apparent in English
speaking countries, and the outcome is
found in stricter enforcement of thc
laws which govern the drinking and
social habits of the people. It is folly to deny the existence of this condition: it is wiser to accept it and
to lend one's aid to any forces which
make I'm' the betterment of mankind,
because only such forces are permanent.
This is a prelude to saying that
some reform organizations display too
much zeal and betray a woeful lack
of acquaintance with actual conditions.
For instance only a week ago a petition was presented to the City Council asking them to bring pressure to
bear upon thc Oak Bay Municipal
Council to refuse a liquor licence in
connection with the Fall Fair. I need
hardly point out that the preparing
of such a petition was n work of
super-erogatiou since thc committee
had decided some weeks ago, in deference to public opinion, not to allow liquor to be sold on the Fair
grounds. While it is probable that
such a decision was a wise one under
the circumstances, and a necessary
concession at the present stage of
super-sensitiveness iu the development of the "Non-conformist conscience" in Canada I am nevertheless
convinced that the prohibition of a
licence is as ridiculous as it is ineffective to achieve the end which the
temperance reformers have in view.
We are simply witnessing the swing
of the pendulum and before long it
will go back to the other extreme.
The wise and successful reformer is
he wdio preserves a sane mean between thc Scylla of deprivation and
thc Charybdis of over-indulgence.
Let me congratulate the Streets
Committee on having at last made a
start on thc good work of clearing the
wild growth of weeds and grass from
some of the main thoroughfares. It
does not cost much and it finds employment, not too arduous, for men
who are perhaps incapable of heavy
work; the result more than justifies
the expenditure.   If any one doubts
this statement let him take a look at
Fort Street just above Cook and notice thc difference within the last few
days. It seems to me that clean
streets must go with cement sidewalks, thc latter are rapidly making
the city look smart and modern and
if the roadways keep pace with the
improvements we shall soon present
a really creditable appearance.
The spending money of a "lounger"
does not run to very much high class
fruit, but I was induced this week
to invest in a box of Okanagan
peaches with thc result tliat 1 cannot adequately express my surprise
al the continued importation of Californian peaches into British Columbia. Thc Okanagan fruit is juicier and
has a richer flavour. I well remember
the starting up of the peach-growing
industry in the Okanagan ten years
ago. Jt was the enterprise of J. M.
Robinson, who founded Peachland on
the west shore of Lower Okanagan
Lake, lie encountered many initial
difficulties, the chief one being
drought, but after a few years, by a
judicious system of irrigation he utilized every drop of water available and
led it along the hillsides until there
was not an orchard in Peachland
which did not get its share and now
several hundred people obtain their
livelihood from the cultivation of the
peach and spend an almost perpetual
summer upon the shores of one of the
most beautiful lakes in the world.
ln twenty years' time this settlement will be reproduced fifty times,
if nut more, in the Okanagan and
Similkameen valleys, long before that
time the fruit merchants of the Province should be able to place the local
product within reach of consumers.
It is superior to the imported article,
and whilst the water carriage from
San Francisco may be a little less
than the freight rate from the Okanagan to the Coast the difference cannot be as much as thc amount of
duty, which makes it perfectly obvious that the trouble lies with the
system of distribution.
1 am not a little amused to find
that the city authorities are as unfortunate in their efforts to control dogs
in Beacon Hill Park as on the public
streets. A good rule which was
drilled into me by masters many
years ago ran something as follows:
"in writing first make up your mind
exactly what you want to say, then
say it in as few words as possible."
On the dog question I do not think
the authorities know what they really
want, but 1 am quite certain they do
uot know how to put their want into
words. Anything more meaningless
than some of the clauses in the recent
by-law could not be matched in any
country where the English language
is supposed to be understood, lt reminds me of nothing so much as
"pigeon English" which is the "Babtt"
talk of India and very obviously the
baby talk of the civic authorities of
Victoria. Why not give the dogs a
rest while tiie framors of our by-laws
take a course in English?
A Western Investment.
Thc Week directs attention to the
advertisement of the Western Coal
and Oil lands in current issue. Of
the financial arrangements it knows
little except that at a low valuation
thc lands are worth more than thc
whole amount of thc bonds, and that
there are no liabilities. What The
Week does know, however, is. that
Frank B. Smith is one of the most reliable coal experts in Western Canada. He is an Old Country man, a
graduate of McGill University, and
has had fifteen years' experience in
coal mining operations in the Northwest and in British Columbia. His
estimate of thc value of the coal lands
may safely be accepted. Mr. White,
though not so well known in Canada,
is known throughout the United
States as an equally reliable oil expert and under his direction borings
will bc put down in thc most promising locality. All the money subscribed for bonds will bc expended in the
development of the property and the
bond holders, when their bonds have
been redeemed, will hold an equal
amount of common stock. It is a
favourable proposition, certain to retrieve itself by means of the coal
whether pay oil is discovered or not.

With cricket, lawn tennis and base-
all finished for the season and only
ne more game ol" lacrosse to be
laved there remain but very few of
ie summer sports to attract the at-
'iniiin of the lovers of good clean
thlctics, but -with the close of the
immer sports the commencement of
ie winter sports is eagerly looked
ir and very little time will elapse be-
>re football is in action, in fact the
rst games in the city league were to
ave been played today, but owing to
ie playing grounds not being com-
lete a postponement has been made
mil  Monday,
Regarding the closing scenes of tlie
•icket and tennis clubs f have already
ealt  with  them,  but  regarding  the
nish   of   the   baseball   and   lacrosse
.•asmi I have not yet mentioned.
Regarding the baseball situation I
n very sorry to announce that the
cal club has finished the season with
deficit staring them in the face, but
understand that the club had a guar-
itee fund to which many of the local
crchants subscribed which will have
meet the loss.   To say the least, t
1 extremely sorry that this condi-
111 of affairs exists.   The boys gave
c  best  they had in  them and al-
DUgh  they lost three  games  they
ve a proud record to look back on
d there is not reason why the games
ould not have attracted a larger a't-
ldance.
There are some around town who
blaming the management for the
ndition of affairs, but I have made
•eftll enquiries and find that this is
t right. The gates were small and
en the visiting teams received their
rcentage there were on several oc-
iions a loss on the game. In addi-
11  to  this  the  club  was  put to a
large expense in starting the game
and before a single match was played
the managers had gone good for over
three hundred dollars. The only reason 1 can possibly give for the small
attendance is tne distance of Oak Bay
from the city. if a down-town
grounds could be secured f am sure
that baseball would soon become, popular but until down-town grounds are
secured it would be foolishness to attempt to put a team in the field with
a chance of breaking even at the end
of the season, f understand that negotiations are pending for new-
grounds and it is very possible that
before next season the home club
will have one of the finest ball parks
on lhe Coast.
Regarding lacrosse very little need
be said. So far this season the local
club has not won a game and although
they play on Monday it very unlikely
that they will win. I have not ascertained the exact state of the finances,
but I cannot figure, out how the club
cleared expenses, but as the grounds
are centrally located there is no reason why with a good team that the
local club should not occupy the same
position they did years ago. There
are many reasons why the club did
not flourish this season and the first
is the main reason, and that is the
players who represented the Victoria
club this year were not ready for
senior company. I said this at thc
first of the season and will always
maintain it. ff the club had been satisfied to enter a strong intermediate
team in that league there is but little
doubt that they would have been very
near the top. Despite this the players
should have made a better showing
than they did and this f attribute to
the apathy of the players.
It is all very well saying that the
players have been practising steadily
when it is well known that they were
parading up and down Government
street instead of being at the park.
Until thc players realize that they
must practise to win and also have
thc .public know lhey arc practising
without throwing a lot of hot air,
there will bc no senior team of any
consequence in Victoria. The public
knows as well as the management of
the club when the players have been
practising and when it is known that
certain players arc oil thc team who
havc shirked their work they will not
receive the assistance of the public
and without it they might as well quit,
f must give credit to the club on the
determined efforts that have been
made to fulfil its dates and as yet the
local club has met every date on thc
schedule. Now that the season is
about over 1 would suggest thai the
committee of management start at
once to settle on their plans fnr next
season, for unless an early start is
made thc conditions will be the same
as this year, only a little bit worse.
ft is very surprising how some
people can peddle hot air without having the least occasion for doing so.
I refer to the long article in one of
the local papers telling how the baseball club had challenged the cricketers to a game of cricket. The public
was told that intense interest was being taken 11 the match which was to
have been played tllis afternoon. f
have made enquiries and f have ascertained that the management of the
baseball club knew absolutely nothing
about the proposition and Manager
Wille took so much interest in the
suggestion that he left for ten days
holidays last Tuesday; this is the interest that is being taken in the
match. Captain Yorke of thc cricket
club when asked regarding the match
said  he  had  heard about  it  but  had
received no definite challenge, f do
not wish to say that the paper was
deliberately trying to force hot air
down t.ic throats of the public, but *t
was either a case ol" that or some oue
Landing the sporting man a "lemon."
I am inclined to think, however, that
the suggestion originated in the mind
ol" the .-porting editor, which did not
meet with favor.
I am pleased to see that the local
soccer associations have decided to
put a combined team in the field when
it comes tn playing outside cities. This
is thc only satisfactory method and
i will he greatly surprised if some ol
those championships about which so
much is being said do not come to
the Capital City. The J.B.A.A. oarsmen will visit Vancouver today and
incidentally endeavour In lift sonic
1 if the trophies that are being rowed
I'm- iu the Terminal City. From all
accounts the boys arc in good condition ami shnuld give a good account
nf themselves.
My attention has been called tn the
fact that an error crept into the
editorial columns of Tlle Week last
issue in connection with comments
upon the Cricket Tournament, thc
name of the captain, Lou Yorke, was
given in connection with Martin and
Meredith as having been got mil for
nothing; as a matter of fact the
popular captain hit up 29 in good
style and materially contributed lo
the victory, ft was a case ol handing in the wrong name to the Editor,
fnr which  I wish to make amends.
The showing made hy the lady tennis players of Victoria al the Seattle
Tournament is more than gratifying.
Miss Marian Pitts fully justified the
opinion 1 have repeatedly expressed
tnat she is the strongest lady player
in British Columbia. She won three
firsts and could not have done more;
she won the ladies' singles and took
the splendid Challenge cup; sue woii
the ladies' doubles with Miss viuci
Pooley,as partner and i.,c mixed
doubles with Mr. E. Jordon. fhe lai
ter played a splendid game and confirmed my estimate that lie is much
stronger in doubles than singles being easily defeated by Freeman in the
latter. Miss Pooley did well, winning
out in thc ladies' doubles and reading the finals iu the singles and tht:
mixed. These victories added in
Mrs. Langley's splendid success ;.*

* A Lady's Letter *
*  *
By  BABETTE.
Dear Madge:
I have often wondered how many
"and" clubs there are in existence.
I know of at least a dozen, not to
mention the anti-tobacco, the anti-
bachelor, and the anti-race suicide
clubs. One really gets completely
mystified with their number and vague
significance. The latest phenomenon
is the most startling of all. We are
told that an organization to promote
"moral obligation and personal responsibility" ip wanted and it is proposed to give it the name of "The
Anti-Affinity Club,"
The idea is that no person, especially if he, or she be married, is in
such danger as when a supposed soul-
mate or affinity, is encountered. This
it is which more than anything else
breaks up happy homes, and leads to
divorce suits. The whole conception
of affinity, it is declared, is a delusion and a snare for the weak-minded
and people who succumb to its dangerous philosophy must be talked to
and hammered into reason.
The advocates of the new movement do not maintain that it is incumbent upon a man to live with a
wife who makes his home a hell upon
earth. But they make pointed allusions to the curious "fact" that scores
of men live for decades of time with
wives who seem perfectly satisfactory
to them as comrades until they encounter a younger woman, who appears in the guise of a soul mate.
Immediately the wife of the man's
youth, according to his story, devel-
opes impossible characteristics, And
he is certain that to do his best as
a man and a citizen he must possess
the soul mate. The antis refuse to
believe the great Creative Power ever
meant a man to reach his best development through any act which brings
sufferings to his wife and children.
This sort of justification for an entanglement is growing tiresome. It
would seem far more manly for the
obsessed husband to say—"I am weak
and cannot resist this infatuation."
"Cobbler stick to your last," is a
narrow proverb, fast falling into dispute. In place of it we hear every
day, "How nice to have a hobby."
Too often this means becoming a
camera fiend, a postage stamp or butterfly collector. It might equally well
be art, an infinitely greater source of
satisfaction as well as instruction, as
well as the one thing needful to keep
the mind of thc hardwrought business
man, in a state of perfect equilibrium.
It is said of a business man: "Better
wear out than rust out." He will
never rust out if hc has the solace, the
inspiration and the stimulus of art.
The practice of art, as no other thing,
brings with it thc appreciation of art
and what is worth more, the appreciation of nature. The love for art is
the greatest inheritance a man or woman can have. It is dormant in many
and needs only to be awakened. Its
development is the most profitable
investment any speculator can make.
True appreciation enables him to get
for nothing what could not be bought
with millions. You hear a man say
to his son, "Make your pile, and you
can pay others to do your painting
for you!" Little know such the joy
of work, of expression, and of artistic
achievement. As well pay someone
to eat for you!
Advertising is becoming such a mad
craze in our humble burg in these
days, that one wonders what will be
the next (to use a school boy's term)
"fancy stunt" in that line. One sunny afternoon I was trying on a new
fall bonnet in The Elite when a wild-
eyed woman stalked up to mc and in
a tragic way peered into my face.
At the same time she held out her
hands, in one was a cake of "Lohengrin Soap," in the nther a black
cigar. "You arc Raffles,'' she hissed
in my ear. "Take off your wig—for
you are caught at last!" After much
parley I finally convinced her that I
did not wear a wig and my name was

Elections.
To the Editor.
Sir,—I hear a good deal just now
of politics and elections, which every
one should take an interest in. It is
not necessary for a man to remain
the same all the time in politics.
Let every man try to elect to power
the government he thinks his country will prosper most under. Numerous Conservatives became Liberals
at the end of the Tupper administra-.
tion because they saw a change was
necessary. The Liberals did well
at first, but latterally they havc been
a sad disappointment and do not
the signs of the times point to an
early return to power of thc Conservatives. The business men seem
anxious for it, and ask the working
men what they think of the Liberal
administration, and ten out of twelve
will answer back "not much," and
have they not got just cause to think
sii, for what has thc Liberal immigration policy done for them, and how
has it affected them? Arc there not
more Asiatics working in the mines,
mills, factories and fisheries of British |
Columbia today to the exclusion of |
white labour, than ever there was under Conservative rule, and some of
the largest employers of cheap Oriental labour on this island today are
men of broad Liberal principles, and
working men well remember that it
was some members of the Board of
Trade of broad Liberal principles who
about two years ago announced on
the floor of that institution, that British Columbia needed more Chinamen
In conclusion, I would ask for "the
land's sake" what has the D.L.G.
done for Victoria this summer in thc
way of improvements or giving work
—about as much as they have for
Sidney. It may be interesting to note
how quick the dredge will bc over
now when all the line weather is
past. Is this policy helping out Victoria  or  Vancouver  Island?
Workingmen, study these things
and ask yourselves if you don't think
a change will do good, for your condition at present can't be much worse,
and you can rely on it that the Conservatives stand for a business-like administration, and a white Canada.

THE WESTERN COAL

Are about to extensively develop their immense properties near

The Company has also let a contract for a 2,500-foot well on
its valuable oil and natural gas lands.
The capital for this development work and machinery is being
provided by the issue of
FIRST MORTGAGE SIX PER CENT. GOLD BONDS
A method of finance which has been employed by most of the
large coal companies, many of which have paid off tlieir bonds
and are now paying dividends on their stock. These bonds will
be sold in the East, hut in order that Victoria and Vancouver
investors may have a chance to become interested in the property
and to participate in the immense profits that arc sure to be
earned, and the consequent rise in the value of tlie stock, we have
been instructed to make the following

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1908
Onb Dollar Per Annum
Tlio Conservatives of Vic-
bening the     toria opened their electoral
[mpaign.        campaign     on     Thursday
night with a meeting which
s held in the North Ward School. There
no beating of drums nor any great
urish of trumpets, nor was tliere any
ng of big guns, but there was an enthu-
stic gathering, and a business-like and
mtable discussion of the issues.   Presi-
iit Barnard made an excellent address,
ering the whole ground with reference
the chances of the Conservative Party
the forthcoming election.    He had no
Acuity in showing that the boast of the
berals that they possessed the undimin-
d confidence of the country because
|-y had won all the by-elections was en-
ely misleading, since an analysis of the
|ui'ns showed that in every instance but
their previous majorities had been
prmously reduced.   If the Liberals have
J stronger staff than this to lean on they
undoubtedly trusting to a broken reed.
|t the chief interest of the meeting cen-
in the broader issues which were
temperately discussed, and the lines
_n whicli the campaign will be con-
ited in this Province were clearly de-
id.    The Week long ago pointed out
t, apart altogether from its joint in-
;st with the other Provinces in Federal
stions, Britisli Columbia had an ac-
nt of its own to settle with the Laurier
ministration.   That  account traverses
four years' delay in commencing con-
iction work from  the  Coast on  the
Hud Trunk Pacilic;   it covers the un-
|ipi'omising attitude of Sir Wilfrid and
advisers on the subject of Oriental Im-
;ration; and it covers their contemptu-
treatment of the demand for some-
:ig   which   could   be   honestly   called
Jitter Terms."   AVhen Mr. Templeman
satisfied the constituencies that in all
B-11 matters the Ottawa Government has
an attentive and sympathetic ear to
demands of the Province he will then
Be time to meet the charges of mal-ad-
liatration, extravagant expenditure, in-
Iasing taxation, flooding of Canadian
rkets with American goods, and the
elopment of Mr. Fielding's patriotic
eferential tariff" under which the imitation of American goods into Canada
increased in more than double the
Jio of the importation of English goods,
t for the action of the Provincial Gov-
ment and the agreement which they
eluded with Mr. Wainwright last
ing it is doubtful if even yet a com-
lcement would have been made on the
ind Trunk Pacific Construction in B.
It is certain that without that agree-
lt there would have been no protection
the Province either for its labouring
i or for its merchants. Any activity toon this system between Prince .Rupert
the Alberta Boundary is due to the
esman-like agreement concluded by Mr.
Bride, and not to any interest in the
tter shown by the Laurier Government,
in yet, as one of the speakers pointed
, the actual route has not been deter-
cd from the Skeena to the Yellow Head
Js, little or nothing is being done in the
imat Valley. The only activity is
ire activity would bc most conspicuous
t the Coast, and there are not a few
) think that this activity is suspicious
.e it only takes place on the eve of the
■tions. There would be
re confidence in its ^^^^^^^^^
•e more widespread, and if it were less
ertised. "With reference to the Oriental
migration question it is not at the mo-
it acute, and no doubt Mr. Templeman
EDITORIAL
and his supporters will claim on the hustings that it has been settled for all time
by Mr. Lemieux and Mr. Drury, but in
Victoria at any rate it will be difficult
to secure credence for such a contention.
Mr. Drury is an excellent citizen, but it
remained for the Japanese Mission to
prove that he is a Heaven-Born Statesman
and among Victorians the conclusion is
not accepted. They prefer to recall the
fact that Sir AVilfrid Laurier twice declined the suggestion of the British Government to insert a clause in the Japanese
treaty which would have effectually prevented Japanese immigration; that thc
same Sir AVilfrid, in opposition to the advice of Mr. Chamberlain, refused to legislate for Chinese exclusion on the lines of
the Natal Act; and that once more when
the riot occurred in \rancouver and the
whole question was debated at Ottawa he
declared that he was "not in sympathy
with the views of British Columbia on the
subject of Oriental Immigration." Mr.
Templeman would have the electors believe that "BETTER TEKMS" is not an
issue, and that the Federal Government
has solved the question by making a peppercorn grant of $100,000 a year for ten
years. Mr. Templeman has made many
mistakes, being as he declares "not a politician," but he never made a greater mistake than this. Mr. Barnard stated last
night that as long as Mr. McBride leads
the Conservative party in British Columbia "Better Ternis" will be a live issue. He
might have said more, that if the question
is not satisfactorily disposed of during Mr.
McBride's leadership it will bc kept alive
by his successors until substantial justice
has been done. It is not necessary to discuss the subject at the moment, it is thoroughly understood, and the mind of the
public is made up. The answer of B. C.
to Sir Wilfrid's contemptuous treatment
was given at the last Provincial election
and public sentiment is just as determined
on the matter as then. The Province is
still twenty million dollars to the bail in its
financial dealings with Ottawa, and the
fight for fair treatment will go on until
Mr. McBride's demands are conceded. The
Asiatic .question is not the only one on
which Sir AVilfrid Laurier is out of sympathy with the Province. And what of
the "Solid Seven?" Hereafter they
should be known as the "silent seven,"
who sat 'mum" when vital questions affecting the welfare of the Province wcre
under debate and cried out for some living
voice to give them utterance. The Times
thinks that the campaign should be one of
"scandal and vituperation," and it has set
1111 example by resuming its old role and
vilifying' Mr. McBride, Mr. Green and
Mr. Bowser, in its first editorial utterances. If that is its conception of the requirements of the situation it will have
an opportunity to plough its "lonely furrow." The Conservatives will not be diverted by any such mud-slinging device
from the real issues of the conflict, and in
them will bo found sufficient justification
for deposing a corrupt administration unfaithful to its pledges and incompetent in
ils management of public affairs.
a copy of the letter addressed to the City
Council by the Esquimalt Waterworks
Company in 1905 to which a brief reference was made last week. The other is
a letter from our well known citizen, Mr.
F. Angus, who has all along taken a great
interest in the water question and has contributed much to its elucidation in the
public press. The facts cannot be too often
repeated nor too strongly emphasized that
up to date no steps have been taken which
bring nearer a permanent solution of the
water problem, or which give any assurance that an adequate source of supply will
be secured. The second fact is that the
larger mains now being installed will not
increase the quantity of water available
for use but will simply accomplish its distribution and bring about its exhaustion
more quickly. Heading' between the lines
it is not difficult to see that a movement is
on foot for purifying the watershed which
drains into Elk Lake by buying up the
farmers of that district. This will be an
excellent thing for the farmers, and as long-
as the ratepayers of the City of A'ictoria
are willing to regard the project in a
philanthropic aspect it must be considered
an admirable arrangement; but as a contribution to the solution of the water problem it can hardly be regarded as a stroke
of genius. Does the council propose to
make any further move in this matter ?
If so when? These questions are asked
in the interest of people who are beginning
to find life in A7 ictoria almost intolerable
during tlie dry season.
Spying and
Lying.
a great deal
The Week directs attention
to two important communications which will bo
found in the Correspondence column of current issue.   The first is
The Water
Question.
The Colonist devoted two
columns of editorial and a
column and a half of reading space in its issue of
Thursday last to a discussion of "Britisli
Columbia Misrepresented." The motive
was good, the method adopted bad. Even
on its own showing the Colonist went the
wrong way about doing the right thing.
Some greenhorn had paid a visit to the
Province, lured by specious advertisements, expecting to find its streets paved
with gold, and peaches growing by the
way-side. Because he had to go up North
to search for gold he did not find and in
the process got several bud mosquito bites
and wet feet, he went home and gave to
the Yorkshire Post a lying and scurrilous
report of the Province. The Colonist reproduced his report verbatim, thereby giving it general circulation, and proceeded
in two columns of editorial to prove that
it was false. This was quite unnecessary
—first because the letter was so extravagant and self-contradictory that no sane
Englishman who read it would believe it;
the second reason is, that a very well-
known and influential Englishman, Mr.
W. Ingham Brooke, of Harrogate, promptly replied in the Yorkshire Post and his
reply administered the quietus to "Prospector's" charges. There can be no two
opinions as to the folly of reprinting such
n mad effusion, even for the purpose of
criticism. The amusing part of the matter is that tlie editor criticised a paragraph
relating to the epidemics of measles, typhoid, diphtheria and scarlet fever which
did not appear in the "Prospector's" let
ter. This no doubt is a case of mind-reading, or perhaps "Prospector" intended to
say something on this subject and conveyed his intention to the editor of the
Colonist by a "wave thought." It would
have been a wiser criticism to have endorsed the letter of Mr. Brooke and at the
same time to have pointed out that "Prospector" was not altogether to blame since
he Avas misled, as thousands of Englishmen have been and are still being misled,
by the lying extravagant statements with
respect to Canada which are circulated in
the British Press, and by means of
pamphlets, through the Agency of Canadian Government Officials, lt has been
proved again and again that these men
care solely for inducing emigrants to leave
their native land for Canada; they simply
want to count up so many heads. They
care nothing what happiens afterwards and
they systematically misrepresent conditions in order to influence immigration.
AVhile there is no defence for such a ridiculous and misleading letter as that written by "Prospector," there is even less defense for the methods too generally adopted
by Canadian Emigration Agents.
The Liberal Party in A'an-
The World couver, and possibly further
Forgetting.        aneld, would fain forget the
World. Not be it understood this mundane sphere with its men
and women, its worries and its joys, but
its erstwhile particular friend, the ' Arau-
couver AVorld." IS"ever was a paper apparently so much in earnest in defence of
the Liberal Government. Laurier could
do no wrong, Borden and McBride could
not even by working overtime do anything
right. The venomous attack of the World
upon a well-known Conservative minister
landed its proprietors in the Courts. It is
unnecessary to trace its delicate manipulation of personality in connection with other
provincial affairs, but if ever a Canadian
paper appeared to be moved by conviction
it was the "World" and now without warning it has switched round and will henceforth devote its pages to the undoing of its
work of the last ten years and to getting
even with the gang of Vancouver Boodlers
who have finally succeeded in alienating
every newspaper and almost every voter
from the Liberal Party. Jt is a spectacle
for the gods this defection of the World
and all that it means. Only a short time
ago and Bob Kelly ruled the World, that
is the World of patronage which centred
in the Terminal City, now "none so poor
to do him reverence." It really begins to
look as if some Eastern methods cannot be
successfully planted in Western soil. It is
certain that the political "boss" is a sorry
creature who lucks restraint and if given
enough rope will always hang himself. He
is like the horse-leech, witli this difference
that the latter docs sometimes get tilled up,
the former never has enough; nud it is
this perpetual over-reaching which finally
alienates even his own supporters and invites disaster. The reign of the Vancouver gang has been brief; it can hardly be
termed glorious; iu any case it bus ended
and the men without whose permission
one hardly dared draw breath of late years
will have to abandon "high finance" and
return to their counters. Possibly the very
system which they represented has received a solar-plexus blow. THE WEKK, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1908.

chase the entire holdings of the company.
2. The answer to this question
was: Subject to the ratification by
the necessary three-fourths vote of
the shareholders, the directors think
that the sum of $1,271,000 would be
accepted, and they suggested that they
thought the consent of the shareholders could be obtained to leave
the matter of purchase optional with
the city for a period of any desired
number of years (not exceeding twenty) at the price stated, but that if
not purchased within four years from
date, 2 per cent, annually after the expiration of four years should be added
to the ultimate purchase price; and
also, that any addition to the holdings of, or any improvements or installations for the conveying, storing,
or delivering of the waters to any
consumer during the life of the option, should be paid for by the city
at cost when ultimately availing itself of the option to purchase.
In reference to the sale of the Esquimalt and Thetis Lake property by
itself (including the works at Victoria West), the directors are convinced that such a proposition would
not be sanctioned by the shareholders.
This letter is "without prejudice''
and is intended as an outline merely
of the company's views, and if the
proposition is entertained it will have
to be put on a formal basis, and be
accompanied by a proper contract
with all necessary provisions.

To the Editor.
The papers lately have had wonderful accounts of steam and electric
engines for pumping water. What is
it all about? A farmer who keeps
quite a lot of cows on the banks of
Elk Lake tells me they are intended
for pumping water out of the lake
to supply the city, and it is reported
that the city intends to buy out all
the "Plateau" to prevent anything offensive getting into the lake. Of
course he rubs his hands when he
considers the price he will get for his
land. The farmer talks about protein
in food for cattle and his immense
host of chickens and I daresay knows
more of the danger of spreading typhoid amongst the consumers of the
water than 99 out of every 100 Victorians.
Well, the promoters of this scheme
are chiefly, I understand, Mr. William
Wilson and Mr. Paterson, who some
time ago stood for Mayor of the city
but was defeated. For those who
think that it would be wise to get
water from a safer source this is
formidable opposition.
Of Mr. Wilson's energy, I have a
good story: He and his late wife
lived most happily together, so much
so that Mrs. Wilson in the greatest
good humour used to say, if her husband said cabbages ought to be
planted with their leaves down and
their roots in the air it had to be
done. This reminds me of a celebrated couple, Mrs. Carlyle and her
husband. No woman was prouder
of her husband and no husband admired his wife more than he, so much
so that they found it a sort of relaxation to talk of each others peculiarities. Mr. Wilson is I believe a Londoner, but he may have blood of the
same race flowing in his veins as the
celebrated Carlyle had. I have oftener sided with Mr. Wilson than
opposed him and anyone can see what
a tower of strength it is to have Mr.
Wilson on your side. But when it
comes to cabbages!
Then as to Mr. Paterson, I spoke
to several people as to his being on
thc opposition side, every one of them
spoke in complimentary terms of him
although they regretted that he was
on that side. When he was a candidate for the mayoralty I voted for
him, although I knew he did not in
this matter please me. In the same
way as 1 suggested Mr. Todd to be
one of say three to consider the question of water supply for the city. I
know that either of them, if supplied
with facts would do what they considered safe and prudent. Within thc
last few days I spoke to two ex-aldcr-
men    and each    of them    expressed

themselves quite certain that because
the Esquimalt Company could not
supply fifteen million gallons per day
to the Car Company, they were therefore unable to supply any to the city.
One of them expressed himself so delighted with Mr. Barnard's scheme
when he was mayor. We have been
fighting for the waste water for three
years and I suppose some of our present aldermen may understand the situation as well or as badly as these
two did. Some gentlemen here think
we ought to secure the whole of the
Goldstream company's property; why
I never could see. When the question of ownership was before the
Courts this was never raised. The
reason is perhaps answered by a decision in the English Courts. Liverpool secured some water rights on a
watershed which appeared to naturally belong to three small towns, thc
Court gave Liverpool a right to the
water they wanted but imposed a condition that Liverpool should hold six
million gallons for three small towns
on the route. This was burdensome
to Liverpool and they appealed to be
relieved; Liverpool's request was
granted on the ground that these
small towns had already gone elsewhere for water and by doing so had
annihilated their claim on Liverpool.
Is not this very like our case here
and does it not look common sense.
I understand Victoria sent a surveyor
to Goldstream to report; he reported
ag"'nsi Goldstream and Victoria afterwards selected Elk ake as prefer-
ab.e. An alderman once made a
speech advising the city not to take
a small quantity of water in case it
should injure their statutory right to
five million gallons. Their right is
all gone already.
I know and say without the least
reserve, that the Mayor will withdraw
his evil thoughts about che Gold-
stream company (if he ever had them)
when he finds th_ city has had no
legal claim since they selected Elk
Lake for our water supply. No mention of this claim was made in London when the case was on. One
Judge remarked in a sort of aside "you
want to steal other people's water."
Mr. Lubbe is the cleverest and most
experienced water expert in the city.
He says: "If they take Goldstream
water our reservoir is sufficient." The
Smith Hill reservoir has only 200 feet
pressure when it is full, I think; the
Goldstream reservoir, besides being
very much larger, has over 400 feet
pressure which can be regulated to
suit. It might save a large sum of
money to stop operations both on
Smith's Hill and on the .Salt Water
System—till after the election—Victoria can only think of one subject at
a time. I am perhaps repeating some
things, but for a large community
you cannot repeat too often. So
many people don't stop to think.

At The Street    ^
Corner        h
By THE LOUNOBK p
A well known citizen of Victoria,
after complimenting me on the practical benefits which he claims have
resulted from the pillorying of public
nuisances in this column, asked me if
I would take up a matter which had
caused him considerable annoyance
and which hc has noticed to be of frequent occurrence on our streets. It
is the habit which men have of butting into a conversation.
Two men may be earnestly talking,
often un an important business matter, when up comes a third, deliberately stands within earshot, and at
the first break in the conversation
sails in with his own business. I
think any well bred person will agree
that this is a gross breach of good
manners and one which, while out of
place anywhere, should hardly be expected in Victoria.
The habit is no doubt to some extent attributable to our fine climate
which makes conversation on thc
street a matter of convenience during
the greater part of the year, but this
should not justify any departure from
the ordinary amenities of life, and f
cannot but think that giving voice
to the complaint of my friend is fully
justified by the circumstances.
1 am quite aware that a reform
wave is sweeping over the civilized
world; at the present time its effects
are especially apparent in English
speaking countries, and the outcome is
found in stricter enforcement of the
laws which govern the drinking and
social habits of the people. It is folly to deny the existence of this condition; it is wiser to accept it and
to lend one's aid to any forces which
make for the betterment of mankind,
because only such forces are permanent.
This is a prelude to saying that
some reform organizations display too
much zeal and betray a woeful lack
of acquaintance with actual conditions.
For instance only a week ago a petition was presented to the City Council asking them to bring pressure to
bear upon the Oak Bay Municipal
Council to refuse a liquor licence in
connection with the Fall Fair. I need
hardly point out that the preparing
of such a petition was a work of
supcr-erogation since the committee
had decided some weeks ago, in deference to public opinion, not to al-
low liquor to be sold on the Fair
grounds. While it is probable that
such a decision was a wise one under
the circumstances, and a necessary
concession at the present stage of
super-sensitiveness in the development of the "Non-conformist conscience" in Canada I am nevertheless
convinced that the prohibition of a
licence is as ridiculous as it is ineffective to achieve the end which the
temperance reformers have in view.
We are simply witnessing thc swing
of thc pendulum and before long it
will go back to the other extreme.
The wise and successful reformer is
he who preserves a sane mean between the Scylla of deprivation and
the Charybdis of over-indulgence.
Let me congratulate the Streets
Committee on having at last made a
start on the good work of clearing the
wild growth of weeds and grass from
some of the main thoroughfares. It
docs not cost much and it finds employment, not too arduous, for men
who are perhaps incapable of heavy
work; the result more than justifies
the expenditure.   If any one doubts
this statement let him take a look at
Fort Street just above Cook and notice the difference within the last few
days. It seems to me that clean
streets must go with cement sidewalks, the latter are rapidly making
the city look smart and modern and
if the roadways keep pace with the
improvements we shall soon present
a really creditable appearance.
The spending meney of a "lounger"
does not run to very much high class
fruit, but I was induced this week
to invest in a box of Okanagan
peaches with the result that 1 cannot adequately express my surprise
at the continued importation of Californian peaches into British Columbia. The Okanagan fruit is juicier and
has a richer flavour. 1 well remember
the starting up of the peach-growing
industry in the Okanagan ten years
ago. It was the enterprise of J. M.
Robinson, who founded Peachland on
the west shore of Lower Okanagan
Lake. He encountered many initial
difficulties, the chief one being
drought, but after a few years, by a
judicious system of irrigation he utilized every drop of water available and
led it along the hillsides until there
was not an orchard in Peachland
which did not get its share and now
several hundred people obtain their
livelihood from the cultivation of the
peach and spend an almost perpetual
summer upon the shores of one of the
most beautiful lakes in the world.
ln twenty years' time this settlement will be reproduced fifty times,
if not more, in the Okanagan and
Similkameen valleys, long before that
time the fruit merchants of the Province should be able to place the local
product within reach of consumers.
It is superior to the imported article
and whilst the water carriage from
San Francisco may be a little less
than the freight rate from the Okanagan to the Coast the difference cannot be as much as the amount of
duty, which makes it perfectly obvious that the trouble lies with the
system of distribution.
I am not a little amused to find
that the city authorities are as unfortunate in their efforts to control dogs
in Beacon Hill Park as on the public
streets. A good rule which was
drilled into me by masters many
years ago ran something as follows:
"ln writing first make up your mind
exactly what you want to say, then
say it in as few words as possible."
On the dog question I do not think
the authorities know what they really
want, but I am quite certain they do
not know how to put their want into
words. Anything more meaningless
than some of the clauses in the recent
by-law could not be matched in any
country where the English language
is supposed to be understood, lt reminds me of nothing so much as
"pigeon English" which is the "Babu"
talk of India and very obviously the
baby talk of the civic authorities of
Victoria. Why not give the dogs a
rest while tne I'ramers of our by-laws
take a course in English?

Sporting Comment
With cricket, lawn tennis and base-
ill finished for the season and only
ne   more   game   of   lacrosse   to   be
ayed there remain but very few of
c summer sports to attract the at-
sntion of the lovers of good clean
:tics, but with the close of the
Limmer sports the commencement of
ie  winter  sports is  eagerly looked
r and very little time will elapse here football is in action, in fact the
'st games in the city league were to
ave been played today, but owing to
ie playing grounds  not being cornicle a postponement has been made
ntil  Monday.
Regarding thc closing scenes of tlle
picket and tennis clubs f have already
calt  with   them,  but   regarding  the
nish   of  the   baseball   and   lacrosse
eason f have not yet mentioned.
Regarding the baseball situation I
m very sorry to announce that the
>cal club has finished the season with
deficit staring them in the face, but
understand that the club had a guar-
ltee fund to which many of the local
rchants subscribed which will have
meet the loss.   To say the least, I
11 extremely sorry that this condi-
in of affairs exists.   The boys gave
e  best  they  had  in  them  and  al-
ough   they  lost  three  games  they
ve a proud record to look back on
d there is not reason why the games
(■uld not have attracted a larger at-
ndance.
There arc some around town who
e blaming the management for the
ndition nf affairs, but f have made
refill enquiries and find that this is
it right. The gates wcre small and
len the visiting teams received their
rcentage there were on several oc-
sions a loss on the game. In addi-
311  to this the club was  put to a
large expense in starting the game
and before a single match was played
thc managers had gone good for over
three hundred dollars. The only reason 1 can possibly give for the small
attendance is the distance of Oak Bay
from the city. ff a down-town
grounds could be secured 1 am sure
that baseball would soon become popular but until down-town grounds are
secured it would be foolishness to attempt to put a team in the field with
a chance of breaking even at the end
of the season. I understand that negotiations are pending for new
grounds and it is very possible that
before next season the home club
will have one of the finest ball parks
on the Coast.
Regarding lacrosse very little need
be said. So far this season the local
club has not won a game and although
they play on Monday it very unlikely
that they will win. I have not ascertained the exact state of the finances,
hut f cannot figure out how the club
cleared expenses, but as the grounds
are centrally located there is no reason why with a good team that the
local club should not occupy the same
position they did years ago. There
are many reasons why the club did
not flourish this season and the first
is the main reason, and that is the
players who represented the Victoria
club this year were not ready for
senior company. 1 said this at thc
lirst of the season and will always
maintain it. ff the club had been satisfied to enter a strong intermediate
team in that league there is but little
doubt that they would have been very
near the top. Despite this thc players
shnuld have made a better showing
than they did and this f attribute to
the apathy of the players.
It is all very well saying that the
players havc been practising steadily
when it is well known that they were
parading up and down Government
street instead of being at the park.
Until the players realize that they
must practise to win and also have
lhe public know they are practising
without throwing a lot of hot air,
tliere will be no senior team of any
consequence in Victoria. Thc public
knows as well as the management of
the club when the players have been
practising and when it is known that
certain players are on tne team who
have shirked their work they will not
receive the assistance of the public
and without it they might as well quit,
f must give credit to the club on the
determined efforts that have been
made to fulfil its dates and as yet the
local club has met every date on the
schedule. Xow that thc season is
about over 1 would suggest that the
committee of management start at
once to settle on their plans for next
season, for unless an early start is
made the conditions will be the same
as this year, only a little bit worse.
it is very surprising how some
people can peddle hot air without having the least occasion for doing so.
f refer to the long article in one ot
the local papers telling how the baseball club had challenged the cricketers to a game of cricket. The public
was told that intense interest was being taken n thc match which was to
have been played tllis afternoon. I
have made enquiries and 1 havc ascertained that the management of tlie
baseball club knew absolutely nothing
about lhe proposition and Manager
Wille took so much interest in thc
.suggestion that hc left I'm- ten days
holidays last Tuesday; this is lhe interest that is being taken in the
match. Captain Yorke nl' the cricket
club when asked regarding the match
said  he  had heard about  it but  had
received no definite challenge. 1 do
not wish to say that the paper was
deliberately trying to force hot air
down tne throats of the public, but *t
was cither a case of that or some one
Landing the sporting man a "lemon."
i am inclined to think, however, that
the suggestion originated in tiie mind
of the sporting editor, which did not
meet with favor.
I am pleased to scc that the local
soccer associations have decided to
put a combined team in the field when
it comes to playing outside cities. This
is the only satisfactory method and
I will bc greatly surprised if some ol
those championships about which so
much is being said do not come io
lhe Capital City. The J.B.A.A. oarsmen will visit Vancouver today and
incidentally endeavour in lift some
of the trophies that are being rowed
for in the Terminal City. From al!
accounts the boys are in good condi-
tion and should give a good account
of themselves.
.My attention has been called tn the
fact that an error crept into the
editorial columns of The Week last
issue in connection with comments
upon the Cricket Tournament, the
name of the captain, Lou Yorke, was
given in connection with Martin and
Meredith as having been got out for
nothing; as a matter uf fact the
popular captain hit up 29 in good
style and materially contributed lo
the victory. It was a case of handing in the wrong name to lhe Editor,
for which  1  wish tn make amends.
Thc showing made by thc lady tennis players of Victoria at the Seattle
Tournament is more than gratifying.
Miss Marian Pitts fully justified the
opinion 1 havc repeatedly expressed
mat she is thc strongest lady player
iu British Columbia. She won three
firsts and could not have done more;
she won the ladies' singles and took
the splendid Challenge cup; sue won
thc ladies' doubles with Miss Violet
Pooley as partner and tne mixed
doubles with Mr. li.. Jor'don. I'nc latter played a splendid game and confirmed my estimate that he is much
stronger in doubles than singles being easily defeated by Freeman in lhe
latter. Miss Pooley did well, winning
out in thc ladies' doubles ami reading the finals iu the singles and tile
mixed. These victories added tn

* A Lady's Letter *
By  BABETTE.
Dear Madge:
I have often wondered how many
"anti" clubs there are in existence.
I know of at least a dozen, not to
mention thc anti-tobacco, the anti-
bachelor, and the anti-race suicide
clubs. One really gets completely
mystified with their number and vague
significance. The latest phenomenon
is the most startling of all. We are
told that an organization to promote
"moral obligation and personal responsibility" is wanted and it is proposed to give it the name of "The
Anti-Affinity Club."
The idea is that no person, especially if he, or she be married, is in
such danger as when a supposed soul-
mate or affinity, is encountered. This
it is which more than anything else
breaks up happy homes, and leads to
divorce suits. The whole conception
of affinity, it is declared, is a delusion and a snare for the weak-minded
and people who succumb to its dangerous philosophy must be talked to
and hammered into reason.
The advocates of the new movement do not maintain that it is incumbent upon a man to live with a
wife who makes his home a hell upon
earth. But they make pointed allusions to the curious "fact" that scores
of men live for decades of time with
wives who seem perfectly satisfactory
to them as comrades until they encounter a younger woman, who appears in the guise of a soul mate.
Immediately the wife of the man's
youth, according to his story, devel-
opes impossible characteristics. And
he is certain that to do his best as
a man and a citizen he must possess
the soul mate. The antis refuse to
believe the great Creative Power ever
meant a man to reach his best development through any act which brings
sufferings to his wife and children.
This sort of justification for an entanglement is growing tiresome. It
would seem far more manly for the
obsessed husband to say—"I am weak
and cannot resist this infatuation."
"Cobbler stick to your last," is a
narrow proverb, fast falling into dispute. In place of it we hear every
day, "How nice to have a hobby."
Too often this means becoming a
camera fiend, a postage stamp or butterfly collector. It might equally well
be art, an infinitely greater source of
satisfaction as well as instruction, as
well as the one thing needful to keep
the mind of the hardwrought business
man, in a state of perfect equilibrium.
It is said of a business man: "Better
wear out than rust out." He will
never rust out if he has the solace, the
inspiration and thc stimulus of art.
The practice of art, as no other thing,
brings with it thc appreciation of art
and what is worth more, the appreciation of nature. The love for art is
the greatest inheritance a man or woman can havc. It is dormant in many
and needs only to be awakened. Its
development is the most profitable
investment any speculator can make.
True appreciation enables him to get
for nothing what could not be bought

the next (to use a school boy's term)
"fancy stunt" in that line. One sunny afternoon 1 was trying mi a new

eyed woman stalked up to mc and in
a tragic way peered into my face.
At the same time she held out her
hands, in one was a cake of "Lohengrin Soap," in the other a black
cigar. "You arc Raffles," she hissed
in my car. "Take nff ymir wig—for

Elections.
To the Editor.
Sir,—I hear a good deal just now
of politics and elections, which everyone should take an interest in. It is
not necessary for a man to remain
the same all thc time in politics.
Let every man try to elect to power
the government he thinks his country will prosper most under. Numerous Conservatives became Liberals
at the end of the Tupper administration because they saw a change was
necessary. The Liberals did well
at first, but latterally they have been
a sad disappointment and do not
the signs of the times point to an
early return lu power of the Conservatives. Tiie business men seem
anxious fnr it, and ask thc working
men what lhey think of the Liberal
administration, and ten mil of twelve
will answer back "nut much," and
have they nut got just cause to think
su. fur what has the Liberal immigration policy dune fur them, and how
has it affected them? Arc there not
more Asiatics working in the mines,
mills, factories and fisheries of British |
Columbia today to the exclusion of |
white labour, than ever there was under Conservative rule, and some of
the largest employers of cheap Oriental labour on this island today are
men of broad Liberal principles, and
working men well remember that it
was some members of the Board of
Trade of broad Liberal principles who
about two years ago announced on
the floor of that institution, that British Columbia needed more Chinamen
In conclusion, I would ask for "the
land's sake" what has the D.L.G.
done for Victoria this summer in the
way of improvements or giving work
—about as much as they have for
Sidney. It may be interesting to note
how quick the dredge will be over
now when all the line weather is
past. Is this policy helping out Victoria  or  Vancouver  Island?
Workingmen, study these things
and ask yourselves if you don't think
a change will do good, for your condition at present can't be much worse,
and you can rely on it that the Conservatives stand for a business-like administration, and a wdiite Canada.

Investment
Secured by First Mortgage
on Coal Lands
Containing Eighty-one Million Tons of Coal
(According  to   report  of  Frank   B.   Smith,   B.Sc.,   C.   &  M.   E.,
Dominion Government Inspector of Mines).   And Upon
TEN THOUSAND ACRES  OF THE FINEST  OIL LANDS
IN ALBERTA
Upon which Oil has been found.
Read this Announcement Carefully
THE WESTERN COAL
& OIL CONSOLIDATED
Are about to extensively develop their immense properties near
the Crow's Nest Pass Railway, and are now making arrangements
to install the most modern mining machinery, which, it is expected,
will enable the Company to mine two thousand tons of coal per
day upon which there is a profit of at least $1.00 per ton.
The Company has also let a contract for a 2,500-foot well on
its valuable oil and natural gas lands.
The capital for this development work and machinery is being
provided by the issue of
FIRST MORTGAGE SIX PER CENT. GOLD BONDS
A method of finance which has been employed by most of the
large coal companies, many of which have paid off their bonds
and are now paying dividends on their stock, These bonds will
be sold in the East, but in order that Victoria and Vancouver
investors may have a chance to become interested in the property
and to participate in thc immense profits that are sure to be
earned, and thc consequent rise in the value of the stock, we have
been instructed to make the following
SPECIAL OFFER
Good Only Until September 15
We offer $10,000 worth of the $100 First Mortgage Gold Bonds
of the WESTERN OIL AND COAL CONSOLIDATED in denominations of $100 each until the 15th day of September, 1908,
unless previously sold, with a bonus of an ecpial par value of
ordinary stock.
NOTE the following exceptional features of this investment:
1—On the report of Mr. Frank B. Smith, B. Sc, C. & M. E., thc
company has over 81,000,000 tons of first-class bituminous coal
on their lands.
2.—The Company has over 10,000 acres of Oil Leases in Alberta
on lands selected by the greatest oil expert in America, Dr.
I. C. White.
3.—Work is now in progress opening up seams of coal on the coal
lands and in putting down a new well on the new oil locations
4.—Your money goes into development.
5.—More money has been made in mining coal and petroleum than
any other class of mining, and both commodities are as staple
as wheat.
6.—On the terms proposed you take absolutely no risk.   You have
a $100 bond, with interest at 6 per cent., payable half-yearly,
negotiable at par;  and have as a bonus an equal par value of
ordinary shares, which in a few years will be worth more than
your bond.
COAL. OIL. NATURAL GAS.
and a Profit of 100 Per Cent.
There is no other such chance with the same security for the
small investor to make large returns on the market today.
APPLY TO undersigned for further particulars; but remember
the offer we now make is special and exceptional, and will be cancelled at noon, September 15th next.

Every B. C. Home Needs a Little Heat
Even in the summertime,
but why suffer work, worry and expense of coal or
wood fires when a Gas Radiator, with just a match
and a turn of the tap will
give all the heat you need
in spring, summer, autumn
or winter. The fuel economy lessened, wear on
carpets, furniture and draperies, as well as freedom
from work and worry,
soon pay small expense of
the gas heating outfit.
