5ERAL POLITICS
Che editorial which  appeared in the
issue of The Week dealing with the
Iject of Mr. E. L. Borden's position in
Conservative party has been widely
mented upon, not always even in the
Lservative rank with approval, but
re are a sufficient number of people
hking'what The Week said to justify
stand-point taken. The Liberal Press
Vorking overtime to create the impres-
that the Conservative party is hope-
ly divided,' and especially to convince
IWest that Eastern financial and mantt-
luring interests are trying to "stains'' the country in favour of high pro-
fon.   It is hardly necessary to say that
is a misrepresentation of the facts.
a vigorous campaign is being waged
tot be denied.   That the leading busi-
men of the great Eastern cities are
■Itically a unit against the Eeciprocity
pement is an open fact.
No Stampeding
that there is any "stampeding" is
I the question, at any rate since Sir
Ifred Laurier, purely out of a sense of
ty to his colleagues tried to rush the
ement through the House and secure
p verdict before there was time for
deration. It is not only Eastern man-
;urers who are aroused, but in every
of Canada there are men who can see
mough beyond the end of their nose
stinguish the trend of the proposed
(ement and to realise that its ultimate
1 will he disastrous.
The Loyalty Question
le Liberal Press consistently laments
I the opposition of the Conservative
is based upon the supposition that
lian loyalty is in question. No sane
Brvative has ever made such a sugges-
| indeed, the leading spokesmen of the
in every part of the Dominion have
ed the idea.    Mr. McBride in his
and memorable manifesto nailed
|ie to the counter; he declared • that
was no question of the loyalty of
llians involved; they are and would
In loyal to the British flag whatever
|utcome of the Eeciprocity negotia-
night be.
The Latest Canard
latest "canard" of the Liberal
I is contained in a lengthy despatch
to be from Ottawa bearing date
4th. and printed in the Victoria
on April 6th. After referring to -
Iganized opposition in Montreal it

h shot their bolt and that the lead-
the Conservative Party have re-

J with this phase the Government is
[asked to furnish certain statistical

1 other side of the Line where natu-
Isources have been impaired and
Hered, and are sought to be replaced
I free importation of Canadian raw
products, that while some localities on this
side of the Line may benefit, Eeciprocity
will in the main operate against Canadian
interests, especially* in the matter of agricultural development. But whilst these
economic considerations are in themselves
sufficient to determine that Uncle Sam is
getting all the best of the bargain, there is
the final and much more serious, because
more far-reaching, consideration, that the
inevitable effect of a Eeciprocity Treaty
with the United States will be to strengthen the bonds of sympathy between Canada and the Eepublic to the South, and to
that extent to delay the advance of Imperial Federation upon sound and permanent lines.
British Interests
This is not to say that the loyalty of
Canada is threatened; it is to say that the
building up of the strongest possible ties,
commercial as well as sentimental, between the Dominion and the Motherland
will be rendered more difficult by the
closer rapprochement to another great
competing nation. To those who have laboured for Imperial Federation in its
widest and fullest sense every straw which
impedes the current, however slightly, is
a hindrance and is viewed with suspicion.
The least that can be said of the Government's policy is that it is wanton, uncalled
for and reckless. In many minds there is
a shrewd suspicion that Sir Wilfred Laurier who, despite all is a statesman, is not
playing his own hand in this game, but is
standing by the Eeciprocity Agreement
because he is unwilling to throw down the
Ministers who conceived and negotiated it.
The Week has already pointed out that the
objection to Eeciprocity from the British
stand-point is not purely one of sentiment.
It constitutes an economic danger to the
trade relationships of Canada and the
Motherland in that it sensibly lowers the
bars to a great competitor of England.
British Preference
The Week is more than ever convinced
that if, as is evident, Sir Wilfred intends
to force this Agreement through and thereby impose an additional handicap on British trade with Canada, the only logical
outcome must be to increase the British
Preference. If he fails to do this he must
plead guilty to the charge of discriminating against England, hut he has declared
again and again that there shall be no such
discrimination,-and that the British Preference shall remain unimpaired. If Sir
Wilfred is sincere in this statement it can
only mean one thing, that he is preparing
to 'dish" the Conservatives by announcing an increase in the British Preference.
A Trump Card
This may be the trump card up his
sleeve upon which he relies to turn the
trick. It would be an astute move, and
one which only a statesman would be capable of executing. Such a policy could
not be criticised by Conservatives. But
not for a moment could it be conceded that
even with this sugar-coating the Pill of
Eeciprocity would be swallowed by an intelligent people who have fully considered
the subject in all its bearings. Such a
concession would meet an objection which
has not been raised, in order to placate a
large section of the electorate sensitive on
the subject of Imperial interests; but it
would have no direct bearing on the principle involved in the free interchange of
commodities, or in the indirect effect of
a reciprocal agreement with a great competing nation outside the bounds of the
British Empire.
THE PARTY LEADERSHIP
It is very kind of the Colonist: to draw
aside the veil and allow the public to see
the innermost workings of Premier McBride's mind. It is also peculiarly gratifying to British Columbians to learn that
at present our popular and brilliant Premier has no intention of entering the Federal arena. This is the prophecy of a
sage. Just what Mr. McBride or the country would gain by such a move "at present" is not apparent, but such a circumstance must not be allowed to detract from
the pregnancy of the revelation so appositely made. It requires neither a
prophet nor the son of a prophet to predict the course of 'events, so far as Mr.
McBride's future is concerned, if his
health and strength are spared. First of
all he has to "finish his work"; that is,
carry his policy for the development of
his native Province to such a point that
its further direction may safely be left in
other hands. Meanwhile he is lending his
great talents to his countrymen throughout the Dominion; he is not only attracting universal attention by the success of
his local administration, but equally by
the weight and incisiveness of his utterances on great public questions. Mr. McBride has spoken with no uncertain sound,
and with a promptness and clearness
which have not been approached by any
other public opposionist, on the three most
important topics which have occupied the
attention of Canadians since he came into
power—the Grand Trunk Pacific Eailway
Policy, ithe Naval Policy and the Eeciprocity Agreement. Without any thought
of self, and impelled only by a sense of
duty, the duty which he owes to his high
position and to his fellow-countrymen, he
has spoken out fearlessly, and his utterances have had the ring of a Canadian
Premier and an Imperial statesman. His
voice has been heard in the farthest corners of the Dominion, and it is not surprising that he has been recognised as the
coming man. The Liberal Press, while
deriding him, has unconsciously acknowledged him the coming leader by voicing
the demand that he shall step to the front
in the present crisis. Such a suggestion
is in itself significant of Mr. McBride's
influence and importance. The Week possesses no "Open Sesame" to the secret
chambers of his mind and is not privileged to speak for him, but it is entitled
to express its own opinion which is that
the day will come when through no seeking of his own, but by sheer force of circumstances Mr. McBride will be compelled to take up the burden of party leadership. His youth, his special abilities,
his amazing success as a Provincial Premier, his high ideals, his intense Canadian
spirit and the whole-souled British sentiment which possesses him all combine to
make him an ideal leader of the Conservative Party. When the time is ripe he will
be sought, not by any cabal or disaffected
section of his Party, but possibly by a
wider electorate than that of any one
party. Meanwhile he will continue the
work of administering the affairs of British Columbia with a 'success which is as
amazing as it is unparalleled.
BRITISH NEWS
The Week is pleased to find that,
whether as a direct result of its article in
last issue or as a mere coincidence, the
Colonist has found itself able during the
week to increase the space devoted to British News from 12 per cent, io 35 per cent,
of that of its contemporaries. This tends
to show that the contention of Tlie Week
was correct, viz. thc Colonist was not doing the "best possible under the circumstances." It also tends to show on how
slight a provocation it can do better.   Tak
ing the first four days of the current week
the Colonist devoted 67 inches to'Britisli
Empire news; the Worl'd 101 inches; the
News-Advertiser 163 inches and the Province 178 inches.   It is still open to ask
the Colonist why it cannot give as much
British news as the Vancouver papers and
especially as the News-Advertiser, which
belongs to the same proprietary.   It still
gives a little more than a third as much
as that paper.   The editor of the Colonist
excuses himself for this by saying that he
tried to make up for the deficiency in the
news columns by covering important Imperial items in the editorials, but whilst
this may contribute to the literary excellence of the paper it can hardly be called
news, since the editorials are based on the
contents of the British Exchanges which
are a fortnight old by the time they reach
Victoria.   What the public wants is "live"
news, and if Vancouver can get it Victoria should be able to do so.   The Week
has hitherto made no reference to the Victoria Times in tins connection, because it
was not aware that that paper made any
serious professions to purvey outside news,
but presumably realising that "the cap
fitted" the management entered into a long
editorial defence for the paucity of British
news in its columns, winding up with a
definite statement that it had arranged
for a special wire between Vancouver and
Victoria in order to bring over all the
British news which reached the Terminal
City.    This would seem to let   'the cat
out of the bag" and explains why hitherto
neither of the Victoria papers has secured
the same British news as the Vancouver
papers.   It is the telegraphic link between
the two cities whicii has been missing.
Now the Colonist has repeatedly asked for
suggestions how to improve its service and
increase  its  popularity.    Here  is  one.
Why not co-operate witty the Times in securing the missing link ?   As things stand
at present the Times gets most of its news
from the Colonist.   With the exception of
a few local occurrences during the morning there is very little in the afternoon
paper that has not already appeared in its
contemporary.   It would only be a reasonable "quid pro quo" for the Times to reciprocate witli its special Vancouver wire.
In any event the subject has become a live
one.   The Colonist has doubled its British
news in one week.    There is still much
leeway to make up, especially when one
glances at the important Imperial items
dealt with in the Vancouver paers, but
receiving no recognition in their Vi°toria
contemporary.    Such for instance as the
death of Mr. Moberly Bell, late editor of
the London Times which was treated at
length in the Vancouver papers on the
5th. inst. and, in tho Victoria Times on
the same date, but did not reach the Colonist until the 7th., ancl then not as a news
dispatch but as a comment on the comment of tho Vancouver papers.    It may
be a small matter, but since the Colonist
caters largely for sport, ancl even defends
the use of sporting slang, it may not be
out of place to remind that Family Journal that although the Oxford and Cambridge Sports took place a fortnight ago
not a word has yet appeared in its columns with reference to them.   This hardly makes a satisfactory showing alongside
the 10 inches devoted to the "Bruisers'
Union" and Jimmy Britt.   Thanks, Colonist, for small mercies, please do a little
better next week. ^T
■■■
THE WEEK, .SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 191}
Few changes will strike lipme more
forcibly to those Victorians who have
been absent. from thc city of their
birth or adoption during the, time that
has lapsed since the disastrous fire of
last December than the vanishing of
"The Grotto." For many years the
west end of Trounce Avenue has been
the natural meeting place for all sorts
and conditions of men .in Victoria;
appointments have been made here
and, if truth were told, in all probability many business deals have been
put through, or at any rate furthered
, oh their course, by parties standing
at this almost historic corner. But
th.c old order changeth and in place
of the modest buildings now standing
we are to see a handsome block more
in keeping with the growing prosperity of the city.
* *   *
Of course, it is all for the best, but
at the same time I feel sure that there
are many besides myself who will pass
the well-known doers on Monday
next and hear with feelings of regret
the tapping of the auctioneer's hammer and the re-iterations of the momentous "Going, going, gone," instead of thc cheerful voices of the
\ well-pleased patrons and the gentle
tintinnabulation of the glasses. For
the days of "The Grotto" are numbered and at eleven o'clock on this
day of grace the bar will close, never
to re-open in the same place.
* *   *
The closing of an old-time inn, famous perhaps in early days as a posting-house, or chronicled in the books
of Dickens and others as the meeting-
place of well-known persons, excites
more than ordinary notice, and
though "The Grotto" can lay no claim
to such distinction, it is admittedlj
one of the land-marks of the city
and few old-timers can discourse of
Victoria amongst themselves without
its name occurring in their conversation. The present licensee, Mr.
Chamberlin, better known as "Seth",
took over the premises in the fall of
1901 in partnership with Mr. Briggs,
whose death some four and a half
years ago will be remembered by
many. "Seth" is one of those happy
individuals of whom everyone knows
that which is good but of whom nobody has ever heard a disparaging
word. It is good news to learn that
he has arranged to take over the Vernon Block at the corner of Douglas
and View Streets and that hc expects
to be doing business at the new stand
about the beginning of May. Good
luck to you, Seth; may you prosper
as you deserve, and may the waters
bring back in abundance the many
loaves you have cast upon them.
* *   *
Now that the spring is upon us and
the mind involuntarily begins to look
forward to the hot summer months
when picnics, bathing and other seaside amusements will be in full swing,
I think it well to urge the public
authorities, and especially those who
have charge of the sanitary arrangements of the pity, to make some provision for thc natural necessities of
holiday-makers in the region of Foul
Bay. Last year I was compelled to
write strongly about the disgusting
state of affairs in this neighbourhood,
induced by the continuous stream of
visitors for whose convenience no
public comfort stations had been
erected and who were compelled to
seek from time to time in the bush
that privacy which a far-sighted
Council   should   have   provided   for
them in suitable locations.
* *   *
Things havc come to a pretty pass
if this year, as last, cither residents
in the Foiil Bay district havc to suffer insanitary conditions or visitors
have to be excluded, because the City
Fathers will not take into consideration the laws of Nature which cannot be neglected. Of course, when it
comes to cases, it is thc residents who
suffer. No elaborate building or
underground excavation is needed;
but some common-sense provision
must be made or there will be such
an out-break of fever as will paralyse
th6 community, and result in a far
heavier financial toll, to say nothing
of a more serious one, than is required at present. It is admitted that
Foul Bay possesses the finest bathing beach in the vicinity; it is an
ideal spot on a hot summer's afternoon for a picnic party, and the B. C.
E. R. have made it accessible Tor the
public. All that is needed is a little
consideration on the part of the City
Council.
* *   *
In this enlightened age of ours it
should be unnecessary to harp on
these subjects, but, alas, we have not
yet reached the millenium, and until
that happy day arrives it would appear to be the duty of the Lounger
to voice those complaints which all
know exist, but which so many shrink
from expressing in print. The false
modesty of the average Christian is
one of the most absurd characteristics of an otherwise intelligent community and would be laughable if it
were not carried to such extremes
that it becomes a menace, both to
health and morals. In this respect
the heathen stands on a far higher
plane.
* *   *
It would appear that certain individuals have construed the recent enforcement of the regulation prohibiting passengers from riding on the
front vestibule of the street cars as
an initial movement against smoking
on the cars. Nothing of the kind
was intended and I for one, much as
I prefer the front of the car to any
other place, realise that a better reform was never instituted. When one
considers the vast numbers which
used to throng around the driver
when the crowds dispersed from the
Gorge one cannot fail to realise that
there was a very grave risk to the
travelling public. There is at all
times a severe nervous strain on thc
man at the wheel and this strain is
multiplied many-fold when a seething
and struggling mass of humanity
presses him in on every side.
* *   *
At some future date we may see
the same rule applied to the back
platform, but here again there will
be no animus against the smokers,
but merely a desire to keep the gangway clear for in-coming and out-going passengers. At the same time
the impossibility of smoking will
prove a very real trial to many men,
especially to those who after a day's
work look forward to a pipe on the
car whilst on their way home. In
this case the ladies who want the
vote, and whose main desire in life
it is to see themselves placed in all
respects on thc same level as mere
man, would have an excellent opportunity of enlisting support for their
aims. It would be up to them to
plead with the Company for permission for men to smoke. I can picture a touching sight in the near future. A man, preferably a labouring
man, wearied out with the toil of
the day, enters a crowded car. • He
is searching vainly for a seat to rest
his tired bones when a dainty maiden, fresh from an afternoon's enjoyment, profers him her seat, considering that he has more right to sit
down than she has, and whilst he
blushingly accepts (for I am convinced
that he would not, like so many women, seize it as a right) she hands him
a   lucifcr   to   light   his   anti-prandial
pipe.
* *   *
But here we are, back at the millenium again, whicii is an unprofitable
form of amusement. I should like
to know whether women, when they
get their so-called rights* will expect
'the chivalry, which they now demand,
to-be extended to them. For the life
of me I can't see that they will have
any claim to it. It only originated
out of an idea that woman was the
weaker vessel needing protection at
every turn and a whole lot of needless attentions thrown in as a bonus.
Now they "jib", at the idea that they
are not competent to do a man's work
in the world, and 'twixt you and me
and the gate-post, I am inclined to
agree with them. In saying so much
I shall be in good odour with the ladies, but my next remark will cast
me into the outermost darkness, for
I think that they have been spoilt
and pampered to such an incredible
extent that the vast majority of them
are physically and mentally incapable
of doing without the little attentions
which have been showered upon them
from time immemorial. Will they go
the whole hog? That's what I want
to know. They adopt the professions,
but will they recruit the ranks of
scavengers and chimney-sweeps? If
they get their rights, will they accept
the same treatment which man gives
his brother, and will they accord man
the treatment which his fellow man
does? I ha'e ma doots.
. *   *   *
From all of which you will argue,
and correctly so, that I am not a
married man. Most of us have -some
favourite character in history or fiction. I have one from each. To coin
a word, I should like to be pre-re-
incarnated as Richard III or the Miller of the Dee; two most estimable
characters and sadly misjudged. Has
it ever occurred to you that if Shakespeare had never liv.ed, or. that if he
had lived under any other than a
Tudor monarch our conception of the
erroneously styled "Hunch-back"
would have been different. I don't
propose to enter upon a historical
treatise, but just think it over. As for
the worthy miller, he frankly owned
that he cared for nobody and so he
took it as a matter of course that nobody cared for him. He was logical;
far more so than those who moan
along through life, lamenting that nobody understands or sympathizes with
them, when the real trouble is that
they are so full of "grouches" themselves that they are on the look-but
for trouble all the time.
* *   *
There are two excellent mottoes in
the world: "Laugh and the world
laughs with you," and "Laugh and
grow fat." But, and it is a big "but,"
for Heaven's sake, don't giggle. I
would rather sit next to a man with
hiccoughs than in the neighbourhood
of a "giggler." There are precious
few things in this world which have
not a comic side to them. Sometimes
the joke is on you, but then you can't
expect to have it on the other fellow all the time. Personally, I love
a man who can tell a good story
against himself, but so few are blessed
with that particular form of humour.
* *   *
It would seem that this column is
degenerating into a sort of "Quiet
Talks to Young People About Older
Folks' Business." The fact is that I
have run short of legitimate material
and I want to take the measure of
the in-coming Council before I get
down to real work. It is no use
wasting ammunition if by Saturday I
am to find that my hereditary enemies have again changed their personalities. In the meantime I would
again like to point out that real or
fancied grievances, the former preferred, will find a ready outlet into
publicity through the sympathetic
medium of the

Tliere is nothing wonderful or mysterious about this
fact for good beer is made from malt and hops, the two .
greatest and most healthful natural tonics and builders-up
of human strength. These have been wisely given by
Dame Nature for the service of mankind and they are
intended to be used as all things should be used—universally and temperately.

bottled beer is quite so good or quite so favorably known

Lemp's has been rightly termed "The choicest product

Try a bottle and judge for' yourself. ,
It's an excellent spring tonic and "tone-up."
Call for a bottle of Lemp's Beer at your favorite hotel,
bar, cafe or club.
Any licensed dealer can supply you with a case for
use in your home and you'll find no better or more wholesome beer ever entered yoUr doors.
Don't take a substitute, ask for Lemp's Bottled Beer

the process of forgetting the man
starts right' away, and he simply is
forgotten until the day comes along
when in the natural order of things,
the papers chronicle his death and relieve themselves each of one more

that it was painfully devoid of artistic qualities, and if Mr. Edmonds
makes another attempt he will be
well advised to restrict his own contributions to the programme and to
secure trained talent.
Mischa Elfnan
The unanimous verdict of every
city in which Mischa Elman has
played is that no.artist since the advent of Paderewski on his first tour
has lived up to the advance heraldings
of his'coming as does Elman. The
reports are not exaggerated, and a
hearing of this marvel creates a feeling such as one does not experience
often and which words cannot explain.
In speaking of Mischa" Elman's
first appearances at the Manhattan
Opera House a critic of the New
York Press says:
"Mischa Elman broke the !no encore' rule in the Manhattan Opera
House with a vengeance. There was
no stemming the tide of applause
whichi came from gallery, pit and
stage like the onrushing of a hurricane. • The virtuoso came out ijepeat-
edly to bow his thanks, but that did
Max Dill
The two plays which appeared at
the Victoria Theatre on Monday and
Tuesday did not lay claim to 1_^ high-
class masterpieces of musical comedy;
they were just laughter-makers and
nothing more and viewed in this light
they were an undoubted success.
Though opinions may differ as to the
humour of the Dutch comedian, nobody can deny that Max Dill is a
leader in this role; his make-up, hi.i
eccentricities of speech and manner
and his "fat" good-humour would ensure a hearty laugh even if there
were no pegs in the shape of a play
on which to hang them. Mr. Dill
was ably supported by Roger Gray^
who fulfilled the role which is
traditionally allotted to an actor of
the  Hebraic persuasion,  and as  the

never assertive; he is declared to possess greater magnetic temperamental
charm than Kreisfler and much of

such a lion of the artistic world has

The Harem Skirt
BY BOHEMIAN
For several  months  I  have  been
struggling against fate,  but  at   the
. -last moment I am forced to succumb.
If I do not write about the one topic
; of the age, the Harem Skirt, I find
: that I shall be, if not anathema, at
least anathematised.
As long as the subject was dealt
I with gingerly in the fashion columns
: of Society journals there was no par-
ticular reason why The Week should
•: take notice, but when Lord Rose-
\ bery makes the latest fashionable
; craze the theme of a speech, and
j when it is literally filling the public
; eye in every part 'of the world, to
ignore it would be a "betise."
) One of the latest contributors to
| the discussion of this article of femi-
I nine attire is Lady Mary Walker, of
:. whom few of the present generation
i have ever even heard. Indeed, I
i thought that years ago she had gone
! to her reward, and mingled with the
happy spirits in a clime where neither
Harem Skirt nor any other kind of
| skirt is a consideration. I found,
| however, that I was mistaken, for
I Lady Mary Walker writes to the
i American Press strongly endorsing
i the latest innovation, and reminding
! a forgetful public that she has been
; advocating it for half a century.
Now Lady Mary Walker is one of
i the few public women who really has
■ the courage of her convictions. I re-
1 member .being taken when a little
i boy, and that is considerably more
I than forty years ago, to attend a lec-
i ture by the same Lady Mary Walker
j in St. George's Hall, Wolverhampton.
■ Since the circumstance is recalled by
the lady herself it is not impertinence
: to suggest that she then appeared, to
• be well on the wintry side of thirty-
' five. She lectured on Women's Rights
i and was, as a matter of fact, one of
; the pioneers of the movement in Eng-
; land, although, coming from America,
she was regarded as somewhat of a
freak.   On that occasionshe wore the
costume which she has always advocated, although I should hardly call
it a Harem Skirt, for it much more
Closely resembled Harem Pants.    It
was then that I got my first glimpse
of the bifurcated garment which after
the lapse of nearly half a century has
come to the front in a more decided
manner than ever before.
As we have not been treated to an
ocular demonstration on the streets
of Victoria|~I am only able to judge
of the appearance of this remarkable
garment freitti the picture pages of the
illustrated papers. Having seen these
sketches I am filled with amazement,
that any woman could be induced, or
even bribed, to appear in public, or
private, in such an inartistic garment.
One lady has very properly pointed
out that the silk pantelletes of the
Turkish Harem are not altogether devoid of attractiveness, and some of
my readers may remember that that
divine dancer, Kfte Vaughan, who for
twenty years held undisputed ^supremacy on the boards of the Gaiety, always danced in Turkish pants, or
whatever is the right term to apply
to. them- But they were made of
suitable material and they wcre thc
whole thing, and not a very ineffectual and inartistic make-believe.
Anything more inelegant than the
Harem Skirt could hardly bc conceived.    It is impossible under any
circumstances for a lady to look even
passable when wearing it; its only
mark is eccentricity, and it is certain
that the only possible object in wearing it is to attra'ct attention and create a sensation. This result has been
achieved wherever it has been worn.
There is not a single country where
the wearer has not been hustled from
the streets, or the stage, and greeted
with howls of derision.
The philosophy of this attitude on
the part of the public is very easy to
understand. It bears no relation to
the "rights" of women, because mere
man has learnt long ago that if woman is determined to make a fool of
herself she is going to do it anyhow.
This has been illustrated in every
stage of the world's history, and in
our own not less by the vagaries of
suffragettes than by the extravagances of butterflies of fashion.
The objection to the garment rests
solely upon the desire to see lovely
woman present as lovely and attractive an appearance as possible. Anything which adds to her attractiveness is eagerly welcomed, and willingly paid for by the inferior sex, but
it is adding insult td injury to tap
■San...
ijiii
the bank-roll of an admirer for a costume which effectually dissipates any
pleasure which man may derive from
regarding it.
In this degenerate age, although
perhaps there have been degenerate
ages before, woman is more than
ever a doll. Never before in the history of the world have such untold
fortunes been lavished on her adornment. Many a woman walks the earth
today with a king's ransom on her
back and a nation's guerdon round
her neck. She thinks it her due, and
perhaps it is; at any rate, that is another story. But the least that the
universal provider is entitled to ask is
that if he shuts his eyes to her indulgence in extravagances, she will at
least endeavour to present to his admiring gaze something in the way of
drapery which approximates, to a
thing of beauty. This is the irreducible minimum of the demand.* of
mere man, and in adopting the Harem Skirt woman is not conceding
even that.
THE TURNING OF THE SOD
(By Ernest McGaffey)
In the windings of the valley, 'mid the silence of the hills,
Where the sun his winter splendour from a golden goblet spills,
Lol they gather in the forest, o'er the lonely highways plod
To the signal that awaits them in {he turning bf the sod.
Here the rosy cheeks of childhood, there the trembling form of age;
Come to read the potent message written on a living page,
Whre the future is unfolded, and where history is made
In a shred of turf uplifted by the thrusting of a spade.
For the wilderness, divided, shall take on the stress of toil;
And the smoke from cabin chimneys will curl upward from the soil
Where the scent of apple-blossoms clings to spreading orchard trees,
With the long days drowsed in slumber to the murmuring of the bees.
Through the timber, past the rivers, onward speed the shining rails
Bringing welcome to the settler, sowing harvest in the vales;
"Peace and plenty, peace and plenty," so the rising chorus runs
'Mid the clouding of the seasons and the passing of the suns.
Yet within the vivid promise of,this prescient vision cast
Comes a Prophet-voice slow speaking as an echo from the past,
Comes a martial peal of warning, like a rallying bugle blown:
"Are ye building for the stranger, or up-rearing for mine own?"
"Will ye barter what is Destiny, to alien hearts and hands?
He who builds on foreign vantage builds his house upon the sands!
Carve your Nation's fortune singly; hold forever watch and ward;
British soldiers, British sailors, let no others stand on guard."
"Will ye follow to the beckoning of phantoms leading on,       ,
Going deeper into darkness, blindly groping for the dawn?
Lo! ye leave the beaten path-way for the bog of Vain-Desire
While before ye mocks the glitter of the marsh-light's luring fire."
"Look! beside the laughing waters are the children at their play
Will ye fling their fair inheritance, a priceless pearl—away?
Arm ye! Arm ye! on the instant, and eternal vigil keep
Lest the music of the sirens lulls yourconsciences to sleep."
"0 my people, are ye smitten with the lust for sudden gains?
Will ye grasp as at a shadow, while the vital substance wanes?
Do ye scorn the bitter wisdom which experience hath taught?
Will ye sell mine ancient birthright for a mess of pottage brought?"
"Nay! I dare not deem ye weaklings; or by either field or flood;
T'was not wrought within your breeding, never nurtured in your blood.
Eee! one Empire and one banner, see one country and one God
Is the lesson, so ye heed it, in the turning of the sod."

No Signs of Spring
Travellers arriving in Brandon from
the north say that the country fifty
miles from there and further north
is covered with snow and that immense drifts still remain. There is
no sign of spring whatever in that
direction.
Destructive Fire
An actual loss of about $130,000
was caused recently by the destruction by fire of the Pitt River Lumber
company's new mill at Coquitlam,
the total loss reaching around the
$200,000 mark, with only from $65,000
to $70,000 insurance.
In addition to the plant and machinery, about 2,000,000 feet of dressed
lumber and several carloads of shingles ■• were burned. Onlv a few
shingles, one shed of lumber and the
office were saved.
Fishery Regulations
An orderiin council has been passed
amending.the general fisheries regulations by providing that no person not
a British subject, shall in future be
allowed to/angle or take sporting fish
without having obtained an angler's
permit. The regulation applies to ail
provinces but Ontario, Quebec, New
Brunswick and Prince Edward Island,
where such permits are issued under
the authority of the Provincial Government.
Thinkers Opposed
W. A. Shephard, of Borden, Sask.,
of the council of the consolidated
boards of trade of Saskatchewan, asserted today that all the boards of
trade in that province were opposed
to reciprocity, as were also a majority of thinking people.
Automobile Service
Arrangements are under way to in.
stal an automobile service between
Kamloops, Merritt, Aspen Grove,
Tulameen and Princeton. Mr. C.
Craig, a well-known automobile expert of Vancouver; who has been
visiting Merritt, has come to the conclusion that an automobile service
between these five towns would be a
paying proposition and a regular service will be put on as soon as the
snow is well off the ground.
Good Prospects at Pincher.
Pincher City farmers    have    commenced spring work.   The land is in
splendid condition for seeding and
there will be a big acreage^ seeded to
spring wheat this season. Fields
seeded to fall wheat are putting on a
green appearance and are in splendid
condition. The prospect for bumper
crops could hardly be better.
To Establish Factories From Atlantic
to Pacific
The establishment of a number of
plants from the Atlantic to the' Pacific is contemplated by thc Associated Portland Cement Co., of London, England, one of the richest corporations in the world and H. K. G.
Bamber, managing director and H. D.
Anderson, associate director are in
Vancouver and Victoria negotiating
for suitable sites. The plans of the
company involve an expenditure of
millions of dollars in the Dominion.
Canada's Prosperity
The total trade of Canada for the
eleven months of the fiscal year was
$867,377,488, an increase of $76,799,507
compared with the corresponding
period last year, February trade totalled $52,946,413, an increase of $6,-
655,312. For the full year the estimated trade will reach nearly $750,-
000,000.
Telegraph Rates to Be Reviewed
The department of justice has appointed W. S. Buell, of Brockville,
and Isaac Pitblado, of Winnipeg, to'
represent the people of Canada in the
general inquiry into the matter of
telegraph rates and telegraph forms.
The inquiry has arisen as the result of a complaint laid by the Winnipeg board of trade against the telegraph companies, but as the issue was
one of national interest, it was taken
up by the government.
At the railway commission office it
was announced that an inquiry would
bc commenced by the commission in
Toronto,  Monday, April 24.
An Expensive Game For You
If you see a chair in one store marked $3.00 and in another store you see the same chair marked $1.98, your first conclusion is that the first store
is high. Some merchants take advantage of this. They mark a ridiculously low price on things whose prices people can compare by shopping around
Then on other things they boost the prices unreasonably high. You are misled by this, and you pay too much for the most of your goods. In this store
everything is marked at a uniform small profit. You don't pay the slightest bit higher per cent when your purchase is $100 than when it is ioc. Do you

RECIPROCITY
Colquitz,  B.  C,  March,  19.1.
ie Editor The Week:
ISir:—Be it known of all men that we,
\e  People  of   Canada,   Sir  Wilfred
aurier, Fielding and Patterson (the
Iree tailors of Tooly St.), have sold
le   birthright   of   Canada    to   the
|iited   States.     Esau   was   hungry
ben  he  sold  his  birthright  for  a
ess of pottage—he was in need of
■e pottage.    Canada is not hungry,
|e has plenty of pottage, and some
spare.   Thc bargain of Canada is
lerefore worse than the bargain of
|au.   Sir Wilfred Laurier, whom we
listed, barters away the resources of
inada  to  a  foreigner,   the  United
ates.
The resources of the United States
llay   are   controlled   by   the   most
|hless band of financial bandits that
er exploited the labor and wealth
la people.   They have largely used
I the resources of the United States.
|.e soil is impoverished, the forests
ye been denuded, the fisheries and
lies are becoming exhausted.   They
Ivv turn their covetous eyes to Can-
|i—they appeal to Sir Wilfred Lau-
for the virgin soil, the virgin for-
|s   and   the   well-stocked   fisheries
mines  of Canada.    Sir Wilfred,
Ihout   consulting  Canada,   without
ling any reason that would be in
[mony  with   sound judgment,   en-
into  the  treacherous agreement
|ed Reciprocity, falls like a fly into
web of the big spider.    Can we
1st Sir Wilfred after this?   The na-
|ial honour of Canada is placed in
vn by this agreement.    Is it not
le for Canadians to rise in their
Jrht and depose the authors of the

Editor The Week:
/ill   you    spare   me   space   for
Ittle comment on your last week's
|cle under caption "Automibilists."
article was evidently inspired by
Colonist report of our meeting
the   Attorney-General.    There
no reporter present. Messrs. D.
iKer, H. Cuthbert, J. A. Hinton,
lAld. Sargison and myself made
[the delegation. Chief Langley at-
ped at our request. No other,
the   Attorney-General   himself
there. The Colonist report was
kxtravagant and absurd that I canned every member of our delega-
and found that none had given
any report of the meeting and
Ief Langley assures me that
Iher did he, so the responsibility
Is with Mr. Bowser. His reporter
kid may have an unduly vivid
Initiation but the detail is so much
|evidence that one can scarcely
ne it all on the reporter.
fhe facts are that we waited on
Bowser to complain of the harsh
liinistration of his Motor Act and
pffer, on the part of motorists to
|.peratc with the police in enforc-
reasonable and safe motor driv-
We pointed out that although
lilar legislation as to speed ob-
|ed in England and elsewhere it is
enforced in those particular
|ts where traffic is congested and
everywhere indiscriminately as
Victoria. We stated our willing-
|s to prosecute even our own mem-
Is who arc reckless in driving. We
Iiplained against the unfair and un-
Itish shifting of the burden of
lof in cases that might involve the
}rty of the subject. We claimed
police officers should be in-
licted to warn the motorist at once
km the officer had him noted for
brosecution so that he might be
rned and have a fixed recollection
lthe circumstances and be prepared
lefend if innocent.   We could not
imagine an Attorney-General permitting his officers to trap citizens, prosecute them, take away their right to
be presumed innocent of an offence
for which they might be put in prison, without at least a chance to defend themselves. What happened
was that Mr. Bowser listened courteously to our remarks and then proceeded to deliver an address whicii
bore evidence of having been already
prepared for us before even having
heard our case. Mr. Bowser's statements and arguments were inaccurate
and raw and subject to repeated correction and objection. I cannot ask
space to discuss the statements or
arguments.
You state that we went to "roast"
Mr. Bowser. We went to reason and
talk the situation over. You say that
we came away "done to a turn."
Every member of the committee
thought it was somewhat the other
way 'round. You have before you
what appears to be Mr. Bowser's
own report of the meeting (of the
impropriety of handing out that article of self-glorification with our arguments omitted or glossed, you may
be your own judge), but our delegation failed to see any "mastery of the
subject." As one gentleman who had
spoken of conditions in London remarked, "Wait till he gets back from
his trip this year and he will be enlightened." You say we "went to
scoff" and "remained to pray." If
our coming-away words were heard
they might truly sound like prayer
words, but they were not. Of us who
did not speak it might well be said in
parody on the lines of Marjorie Fleming:—
"We were most unusual calm;
We didn't say a single damn."
Mr. Editor, you are commonly supposed to be a motorphobe, but when
it comes to the article "Automobilists"—how could you?
Faithfully,
M. B. JACKSON.

Dear Sir:—In a recent communication to you, from this Department, it was stated that the \
Dairy Farm Competition had been
divided into two classes and that
for the best small dairy in the Province, as well as three medals
It was also stated that the name of
this cup would be announced later;
and I now have the honour, as well
as the pleasure to inform you that this |
cup for the small Di"ry Farm Competition is to be k.n-.-.vn as the "Lieutenant-Governor's Cup." The small
Dairy Farm Competition is for those
having five to fifteen cows milking.
His Honour has offered this very
handsome cup to be competed for
under the rules and regulations laid
down by the Dairymen's Assoj f.tion.
Thanking you in anticipation for
any publicity which you may give this
matter, 1 am,
Truly yours,
P. H. MOORE, Secretary.
To the Editor of The Victoria Week:
Dear Sir:—The work of publicity in which the Development
League is engaged has been attended to actively, intelligently and
economically. Last year close to
200 settlers were secured by it for
Vancouver Island, as well as a number of residents for Victoria. The
remarkable and substantial growth
and prosperity of the city in the past
two years has been advertised broadcast all over Great Britain and Canada through the League publicity
channels, and the city has never been
as well and widely known as it is
today.
Everywhere throughout Canada the
plan of attracting settlers, investors
and residents is being carried on vigorously, and with direct pecuniary
benefit. Every city of any size in the
Dominion is advertising along these
lines. Such work was never more
necessary to Victoria than now, when j
the city is steadily pushing to the
front as the coming great metropolis
of the Northwest.
Two years ago a small number of
Victoria's business men and firms,
about   75   all   told,   assisted   by   the

Great Coal Fields of Graham
Island to be Developed by
Victoria and Vancouver
People
The British Pacific Coal Co., Limited, offers limited
block of shares at 25 cents, par value $1.00 each
As early as the year 1878 the late Dr. G. M.
Dawson, perhaps the most eminent geologist ever
actively engaged in historical research in Canada,
visited and most thoroughly explored, among other
portions of the Province of British Columbia,
Queen Charlotte Islands.
Unless the readers of this advertising announcement have familiarized themselves with our northern
country it will not be possible for them to fully
comprehend the great wealth of this northern
empire.
The Queen Charlotte Islands, consisting of hundreds of smaller islands and in the major portion
Graham Island to the north and Moresby Island to
tlie south, rise up out of the Pacific Ocean, sheltering a great portion of the main land of British
Columbia and form the western boundary for what
is known as Hecate Strait.
Dr. Dawson, in his report on the coal measures
of Graham Island, emphasizes not only the quality
of the coal but the extensiveness of the field.
Graham Island, named after an officer of the
Hudson's Bay Company, is the largest and most
northerly portion of the Queen Charlotte group and
is immediately opposite Prince Rupert, the Pacific
terminus of that great transcontinental railway now
almost completed, the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Prince Rupert is six hundred and fifty miles
nearer Yokohama than Victoria or Vancouver and
five hundred miles nearer Alaska than Vancouver
Island.
From Skidegate Inlet to Port Simpson or Port
Essington is one hundred and fifteen miles while it
is but eighty miles to Prince Rupert city. This
means that the coal properties on Graham Island
not only control one of the greatest fuel markets in
the world, but on account of its extensive frontage
on salt water with a deeply dented coast line has at
its command the cheapest of shipping facilities by
boat to most of the world.
Skidegate Inlet was discovered in 18S0 by Major
William Downie. Since that time this' portion of
Graham Island has received more or less attention
of prospectors and miners visiting the northern part
of the province.
Mr. Alexander Faulds, M.E.M.; M.E., consulting
engineer of Vancouver, on October 27th, in the year
1910, submitted a most comprehensive report on the
property now controlled by The British Pacific Coal
Company, Limited.
In his report Mr. Faulds, using as a basis of
calculation 8320 acres, estimated the coal tonnage at
thirty-six millions of tons.
This estimate is based on one seam of coal only.
There are five other sefcms, in the property not
included.
Herewith is an extract from Mr. Fauld's report:
Appraisal
Your properties are very valuable, being of adequate commercial assemblage and magnitude and
excellently located, with their transportation facilities, the potentialities of which, from the estimated
quantities of coal they are likely to contain are very
vast and practically unlimited in depth.
"The value of 36,000,000 tons of bituminous coal
in your properties for one coal seam 6 feet thick
should be not less than $120 per acre, and anthracite
not less than $180 per acre, the mean or average of
which would be $150 per acre, exclusive of agricultural and timber value."
These are most important facts, absolutely essential to the appraisal of these properties towards industrial enterprises.
These 8320 acres or thereby are an excellent and
adequate commercial assemblage for colliery operations capable of producing a daily output of 1000
tons for about 144 years.
Taking the capitalization a t$l,500,000 at 162-3
per cent, gives $250,000 per annum, and taking an
output of 1000 tons daily or 250,000 annually at a
profit of $1.00 per ton would produce $250,000 per
annum, or the capital recouped in six years, adding
another year for contingencies, making seven years,
or say altogether at the utmost a period of eight
years.
"Taking the estimated tonnage of 36,000,000 during the life of the mine at $1.00 per ton would give
a clear profit of $36,000,000, or $22.50 for every dollar
invested."
The assembled area of about 8320 acres reported
upon are held under licenses from the Provincial
Government, which includes the coal rights and surface, with unpurchased or unleased timber thereon.
The coal in the property of the British Coal
Company, Limited, is commonly known as anthracite, which is the character of the coal mined in
Pennsylvania and in a number of the Old Country
mines. It is the hardest quality of coal mined in
the world, does not disintegrate on being exposed
to the air, and will not soil the hands. There is a
noticeable absence of dust, so distasteful in the
household and thc streets, and the minimum quantity of ash, gas, soot, or clinker in burning.
The very fact that this coal is so desirable for
domestic and manufacturing purposes will place a
premium on the output of the mines of this Company, since the anthracite coal belt in British
Columbia is very limited.
This means a very wide horizon to the anthracite
■coal market, and wherever obtainable will naturally
be given a preference by the consumer.
The expense of marketing is no greater than that
of the inferior grades, since a ton of coal is- a ton,
no matter of what quality.
The fact that the British Pacific Coal Company,
Limited, may ship its output by water, places the
Company in the enviable position, not enjoyed by
many other coal companies in the United States or
Canada. That is, there can be no shortage of cars,
no excessive freight rates. The Company can load
direct from its bunkers, either into its own boats or
those of competing shipping companies.
PROPERTY CARRIES VALUABLE
TIMBER.
There is sufficient timber on the surface of the
Company's property to build, if required at any
time, boats or barges to handle the coal output of
the mine; also to supply all the timber required in
conjunction with the working of the mine, the construction of all the mine buildings and surface structures, also wharves and piers.
A limited block of shares in the British Pacific
Coal Company, which are held by the Trustee, T.
R. Morrow, are now offered for subscription, the
proceeds of which are to be used in further develop- ■
ing and equipping the property.
The opening price is 25c per share. No applications shall be received for less than 100 shares. All
cheques and applications must be directed to T. R.
Morrow, Trustee. The terms of sale of shares are:
10 cents per share cash with application, balance in
three equal monthly payments.
On the completion of the sale of thc 25-cent issue
the price will be advanced to 35c, 40c or 50c per
share at which new price but a limited block will
be offered to the public.
These shares should be worth and sell for $1.00
inside of one year. The shares havc a par value of
$1.00 each and are fully paid up and non-assessable.
Eminent engineers say that coal may be shipped
from the property in profitable quantities within
six months' work.
This proposition will bear the closest investigation.   Every element of chance has been eliminated.
Those who desire to acquire shares in the British
Pacific Coal Company, Limited, during the present
25c issues should make their applications early,
since, judging from the number of inquiries, the 25-
cent issue will only be on the market a few days.
The Victoria offices of the Trustee, J. E.  Morrow, and the Company are situated at
617 Trounce Ave.

Three Towns in One
A project is being set on foot for
amalgamating the three towns of
Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham,
and forming them into a county borough. The three towns have a combined population of about 120,000.
This will make an unbroken line from
Nakusp on the Upper Arrow Lake to
Kaslo on the Kootenay Lake, the
western end of this road having been
built by the Provincial Government,
and operated by the C. P. R. under a
satisfactory agreement.
New Indian Governor
The King has been pleased to approve the appointment of Sir Charles
Stuart Bayley to be Lieutenant-Governor of Eastern Bengal and Assam
in succession to Sir Lancelot Hare.
Wallace Memorial
The neighborhood of the ancient
house in Elderslie, known as Wallace's Castle, is being inspected with
a view to a site being selected for a
memorial of the Scottish hero.
Noted Churchman's Fiftieth Birthday
The Most Rev. Francis Bourne,
Archbishop of Westminster, head of
the Roman Catholic church in the
United Kingdom, celebrated his 50th
birthday on the 23rd ult. Recently
there has been a revival of rumours
that Archbishop Bourne will be elevated to the cardinalate at the next
consistory in Rome.
Navy's First Oil Tank Steamer
The Greenock and Grangemouth
Dockyard Company have launched
from their Greenock yard the Burma,
the first oil tank steamer constructed
to the order of the British Admiralty.
This vessel has been fitted with the
object of supplying oil to a British
fleet at sea, and is capable of towing
a ship and supplying her with oil
fuel or of being towed while this is
done. The Burma carries 2,500 tons
of fuel oil in twelve tanks.
Fire Closes College
A serious fire broke out at the
Gordon College, Aberdeen, on March
i 8th. The east wing, which contained
class-rooms for mathematics, classics, physics, and chemistry, were destroyed. Damage was done to the
extent of £10,000, and the college,
which has an attendance of nearly
one thousand boys, has been, closed.
The Abbey Velvet
Lister and Co., Bradford, have received the order for over a thousand
yards of rich velvet to drape Westminster Abbey.| The ground will be
in fawn and silver tinsel and the design, on bold conventional lines, will
be worked in rich heavy pile of a 'dark
blue colour.
Queen's Trainbearers.
The two trainbearers at the coronation of Queen Mary will be Lady
Eileen Butler and Lady Eileen
Knox. The others who will be in attendance are Lady';lDawson, Lady Og-
ilvie, Lady Victoria*, Carrington and
Miss Dorothy Brown. Lady Eileen
Butler is the beautiful daughter of
Lord Lanesborough. In reverting to
trainbearers Queen Mary is following
the precedents set by Queen Adelaide
and Queen Charlotte. Queen Alexandra had pages.
English Sugar Beet Scheme
Mr. Ali Cohen, acting for a financial
syndicate which would have a factory
erected near Norwich in 1912, met a
large gathering of agriculturists at
Norwich last Saturday, and put to
them strongly the case for a much
more extensive growth of sugar beet.
Mr. H. Rider Haggard said that from
his limited experience he should not
care to grow sugar beet for export.
It seemed to him that the profit
came from retaining the refuse for
feeding the stock. He believed that
they could grow sugar beet in Norfolk as well as in Denmark.
A Waste of Time
All clocks in France were stopped
for nine minutes and twenty-one seconds, starting exactly at midnight,
March ioth, in order to comply with
the law making the time the same as
ih all places within a radius of fifteen
degrees, ahd in which the time is regulated from Greenwich, England.

station.
Another X-Rays Martyr
Mr. Ernest E. Wilson, a pioneer of
radiography at the London Hospital,
has died at his residence at Bishop's
Stortford, Essex. A martyr for the
benefit of humanity, Mr. Wilson endured terrible suffering with heroic
courage. Two yeftr*s ago he retired
from the staff of the hospital, being
incapacitated owing*-to the loss of
several fingers as a result' of the action of the X-rays 'during its experimental stages.        ~?£
K. & S. Railway Bought
A Kaslo syndicate, of which J. L,
Retallack is a prominent member, has
Secured an option for $25,000 on the

portion of the Lubbe Estate, and an additional sixty feet on Mason
street adjoining, has been purchased by a committee of the churchwardens of St. John's Church for the site for their new edifice,
which will cost in the neighbourhood of $80,000. The sale was
concluded recently and plans are nearly completion by Mr. Ridg-
way Wilson, the architect. The purchase price of the property
was $25,000.
The new -place of worship will be architecturally very handsome. The property is of ample size to allow of a large building
being erected. The steeple, which will be of an unique nature, will
be in the proximity of 200 feet high, which is somewhat higher
than that of the Roman Catholic Cathedral. Two sets of plans
have been made and will be adjudicated upon this week by the
executive of the church.
F. W. STEVENSON'S MONTHLY REPORT
March 31, 1911.
New York Stock Market
The strength of Canadian Pacific, both in London and New
York, has been the main feature of the month. The stock has
advanced steadily, a point or two a. day, with only temporary
set-backs, until the high point of 226% has been reached, and 250
is predicted for the stock within the year. Much of the buying
power has been credited to Canadian investors, and within the past
few days large buying orders, said to be for people in Germany,
have been placed both in Montreal and New York.
The feeling is prevalent, both in New York and abroad, that
the present dullness will continue for the next fortnight, when it
is hoped the Supreme Court decisions will bring activity one way
or the other. Nevertheless, any bull demonstration is likely to be
short-lived because of the extra session of Congress, which is called
for April 15th.
The money situation in London continues strong, and as high
as 3^2 per cent, was paid for loans. Inquiry for money is due to
the calling of loans by joint stock banks to swell their quarterly
balances, and conditions should be easier after this date.
The bull pool in United States Rubber common has resumed
its activity, and as a consequence the recent report of a dividend
equivalent to four per cent, per annum, to be declared on the
common stock, has been received. Whether there is any basis
of fact behind this report or not is a question. Nevertheless, it is
sufficient to move the price of stock up sharply. It will be recalled
that.this stock broke sharply a short time ago from 48, on the
failure of similar reports to materialize.
The New York Tractions, Brooklyn Rapid Transit and Inter-
borough-Metropolitan have been advanced by insiders on the report
that something favorable to both companies is to be announced
soon, but no one seems to have a hint as to what this looked-for
development is. The market, however, seems to have many earmarks of pool manipulation. One evidence of this is the number
of rumors similar to those concerning Rubber and the New York
Tractions.
A canvass of the most active houses in Wall Street shows
they are carrying about forty per cent, less stocks than under
normal conditions, and most of them express the opinion that no
amount of bad news can apparently shake out the remaining
holders. It is this absence of any further liquidation that has been
tiring out the bears, thus preventing further short selling. About
seven out of ten traders seem to be waiting for a break on the
coming Supreme Court decisions in the big trust cases, to get
back their stocks.

Boston Copper Market
Copper prices are unchanged, but the tone of the market is
[slightly firmer. Lake is i2iy2 to y& cents and electrolytic i2iyA to ^
Jcents per pound. Some leading students of T.he situation are
[beginning to ask themselves if a world's visible surplus of 340,000,-
pounds is a particularly bearish factor, in view of the fact that
Ithere are practically no invisible supplies in the bins of consumers.
Uf the latter were to purchase and accumulate normal stocks of
■the metal the world's visible supply would probably be reduced
pereby to not much oyer 150,000,000 pounds.
Amalgamated Copper Company has issued and sold $12,500,000
af 5 per cent, two-year notes, the proceeds of which, it is understood, will be used to purchase all the assets and good will of the
Jnited Metals Selling Company, which has a capital of $5,000,000.
)uring the past two or three years Amalgamated has been making
listory very rapidly.   The consolidation of the Butte producers by
|jhe Anaconda, the purchase  of the  Butte  Coalition—formerly
leinzie's properties—the acquiring of W. A. Clarke's mines in that
district, the taking over of United Metals Selling Company, and
thus securing a 40 per cent, interest in the International Smelting
Ind Refining Company, all suggest that other developments are
jo follow.   Confidence is expressed that Amalgamated Copper will
loon be selling at a considerably higher figure.
Local Market .
Owing to lack of supporting orders in the Oil Stocks, these
fesues have lost ground materially during the past month. Am-
Irican Canadian, which sold as high as 58^2 last month, is now
|eing sold around 29, < and Alberta Canadian at 11. Without oil
lese shares are worth about zero, and in our opinion this is about
■lieir value. In our market letter of last month we advised taking
Irofits around the then high prices. If this course has been fol-
pwed, those having faith in the properties can now replace their
pock at a much better figure.
Portland Canal issues have been quiet, with ruling quotations
it little changed during the past month, with current prices for
artlands 133-4 and Red Cliff $1.00. The hitter we believe to be
litirely too high. Fifty cents per share for Red Cliff would mean
j mine value of $500,000, which we believe is more than anyone
auld give for the property. Our advice is to sell these shares.
Drtland Canal itself, at present prices, we believe, presents a fair
leculative value, as in the event of the company financing its
[esent needs, the shares should do materially better.
The threatened coal miners' strike has exerted a bearish influ-
[ce on the Coal stocks.   International Coal & Coke, at these prices,
on any further break, we believe to be a good purchase.
DREDGES TO GATHER GOLD AND PLATINUM
The Platinum-Gold Fields, Limited, of Vancouver, which has
Ime 20 miles of the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers on lease
pm the government, after a very thorough test of the auriferous
Dund at the forks of the riv,ers here and in the vicinity has ceased
Jilling and the machine is being stored until required after high
fter, says the Similkameen Star.
Ground is Good for Dredging
About forty drill holes were sunk, resulting in such satisfactory
[urns as will warrant the construction of a dredge for the puree of recovering the platinum now known to be in the bars and
livial deposits generally within the lease areas of the rivers.
Iiile there is a dearth of detailed information for publication,
lugh is known to verify the statement that values are satisfactory
dredging purposes. The drill affords absolutely reliable data
In which to base average values and thus reduce placer mining
lachinery to a-science even more accurate than by the primitive
Id method.
The drill has demonstrated that bedrock is deeper than sup-
led, probably averaging twelve feet around the forks.   In any
the pay dirt with scientific treatment in a modern dredge will
[found to be more extensive than suspected by old-time placer-
[1 who had not the appliances for testing at depth.
Industry Large and Lasting
A beginning has now been made in what is not unlikely to
3me a great industry. In other countries, particularly New
[land and California, vast capital is invested in gold dredging,
Idreds of machines costing from $30,000 to $100,000 being oper-
11 in this permanent and profitable industry,
[he area of dredgable ground in Princeton district can only be,
[1 approximately, estimated, but lying within the river banks
re are several hundred acres. If the bottoms and benches are
[uded many times more acres will be added, in all an area large
jgh for the founding of a practically permanent industry. There
|lso Granite creek and a number of other auriferous streams
;h could be worked.
Platinum High Priced
In the early placer days the rivers and creeks were skimmed
in the rush for big pay. Platinum, or 'white gold,' was then
lug, it having been bought as low as 50c and $2 per oz. Miners
[ted it in their quest for the more valuable gold. Now, how-
I, platinum is worth $38 per oz. and there is no doubt it will be
1 chief value obtained by dredging on the upper Tulameen and
[tributaries. Platinum in place has not been found in com-
|cial qualities as yet, but the Dominion geologist is each summer
ig to solve its hidden location, believed to be in the vicinity of
|mpion, Slate, Eagle and Kelly creeks.

Experienced Engineers
The B. C. Drilling and Dredging Co. of Vancouver has the
contract for all the drilling required, the management on.the ground
being entrusted to F. Satchell Clarke, M.E., who has had large
experience in gold dredging in New Zealand, California and British
Columbia, He built the Cobbledick and North Thompson dredges
and was similarly employed in Atlin and the Yukon. The company
retains Mr. Clarke as consulting engineer.
The Platinum Gold Fields, Limited, of Vancouver, is composed of placer mining men, of which J. F. Tener, M.E., is consulting engineer. He has been here superintending the experimental
work, the result of which is so satisfactory that a dredge will be
built and operated at or near the forks of the rivers. It is expected
that a dredge will be completed before the end of the year and upon
its success will depend the construction of several others.
A True Prophet
Princeton and district afford almost every variety of mining,
which proves the prediction made by that eminent geologist, Dr.
Dawson, many years ago; That unless all indications went astray
there would be found rich and extensive mineral deposits in this
section. Every year new light is thrown upon the hitherto dark
recesses of nature in Princeton district. Exploration and resultant
discovery will open the way for development and the establishment of vast metal producing industries. In the great evolution
now at hand, Princeton must play an important part if the spirit
of progress be not strangled with apathy and sloth. As vigilance
is the price of liberty so success is bought with industry and
buoyant hope.
AMALGAMATION OF PORTLAND CANAL PROPERTIES
Vancouver mining men who have been quietly investigating
the merits of a large area situated between the middle fork and
the south fork of Glacier creek, in the Portland Canal mining section at Stewart, said to contain some of the richest veins of high
grade silver ore, are working out a scheme of amalgamating seventeen claims. H. B. Williams, M.E., of the firm of Leckie & Williams, mining engineers, is now in England in this connection.
The property that will be included in the area, if the deal is carried
through, includes five claims owned by the Rush-Portland Mining
Company, six claims in the Silver Horde group and the Excelsior-
Eagle group, the Sentinel-Jupiter group, Silver King and Red Devil
claims. Major R. G. Edwards-Leckie, M.E., of Vancouver, was
instrumental last summer in interesting Lord Clinton and a party
of English gentlemen, who visited the camp for several weeks, in
the possibilities of its mines. The result has apparently been the
working out of a big scheme of amalgamating a number of individual holdings.

CANADIAN RAILWAYS
Canada's railways are among the big transportation affairs of
the world. In 1910 there were 24,731 miles of railway track in
operation in the Dominion, according to a recent statement made
in the House of Commons by Railway Minister Graham. This
was an increase in one year of 627 miles and for ten years, 1901-
1910, of 6,591 miles.
The lines under construction on June 30th last, totalled 4,500
miles, and the recent news.despatches indicate a big railway building programme for this year, probably over a thousand miles in the
West to be under construction during 1911. The total mileage will
at the close of the year probably exceed the estimate of the Minister
of Railways, which he placed at 30,000 miles in the Dominion.
The capital invested in railways in Canada is $1,410,297,687, a
.pretty substantial sum of a country of eight millions of people.
The gross earnings for 1910 were $173,956,217 and net earnings
$53,550,777. The operating expenses for 1910 were $120,405,440.
There were on June 30th, last, 123,768 employees on Canadian railways, earning $67,167,703, and in addition there were 16,709 employees engaged in outside operations as steamers and hotels, earning $5,169,923. The aggregate would thus be 140,477 employees
with a total wage bill of $72,337,636, a by no means inconsiderable
industrial army. The minister calculates that on the basis of each
railway employee representing five persons, there is about one
individual in ten of.the total population of the Dominion that finds
a'livelihood from the railways of Canada.

CORRESPONDENCE
(Continued from Page 7)
Mayor, and the City Council financed
the movement for two years. All
new firms and individuals who have
since come into the city, together
with the entire business world of Vic.
toria, have reaped the benefits of the
work done by The League.
British Columbia is just now the
best advertised Province in Canada.
Victoria is her best advertised city.
The splendid progress of the city in
1909 and 1910 is a guarantee of the
fact that advertising pays. Surely the
time has gone by when it should be
necessary for the men back of this
movement to go out and solicit subscriptions. Those of the old residents
who have not joined The League, and
those of the new-comers who are
similarly situated have an opportunity
to show their faith in Victoria and
tlieir appreciation of successful publicity by allying themselves with the
Victoria branch now.
Among the organizations working
for the prosperity of Victoria and
Vancouver Island, the Provincial and
Dominion Governments, the City,
Mayor and Council, the Press, the
Board of Trade, the Bureau of Information and other public bodies,
the League has, by its record, an
llonorable place. Its literature has
been good, accurate and not overdrawn. Its work has been marked
by conservative statements and business methods. It has the confidence
of the men who launched it and still
approve of it, and it deserves the encouragement of Victoria and her citizens.

March Rod and Gun
An exploration trip a little out of
common forms the leading story in
the March issue of Rod and Gun in
Canada, published by W. J. Taylor,
Ltd., Woodstock, Ont. In this story
Dr. Luther Harvey describes a trip
to Moose Factory and the very
strenuous work he and his guide encountered during their return by way
of the Abitibe River. It is a story
that will delight the hearts of all
good sportsmen. A paper on the
Ancient and Honorable Brotherhood
of Sportsmen holds up the highest
qualifications for the members of the
noble brotherhood and describes
some of the fine conduct necessary
on the part of those who would join
the exclusive ranks. "Snow-Trailing
a White-Tail Buck" is a gem of a
story and it does not detract at all
from its interest to know that the
buck is still at large and will require
all the hunter's mettle to overcome
his instinct and cunning. In the
"Conservation of the Ducks," Mr. J.
A. McKenzie raises a number of questions of the deepest possible interest to many sportsmen who indulge
in a day with the ducks. There are
many other good things in the number, including the decision of Judge
Hewson on the settler's rights to big
game, the conferences of the Nortli
American Fish and Game Protective
Association, a review of the New
Brunswick game season, the Manitoba Game Laws, the destruction of
wolves, etc., etc., affording sufficiently
wide reading to interest any and
every sportsman concerned in the
many game problems raised throughout the Dominion.
There is a model made tliat fits your
figure to perfection. Be particular
to get it and there'll be no difficulty
in getting the "right hang" to your
new gowns or suits. No other corset
imparts such gracefulness and true
dignity of style.

Good for Kamloops
The citizens of Kamloops will in
due course have the satisfaction of
seeing a smelter in full blast in that
town if negotiations can be satisfactorily concluded. It is proposed to
incorporate a company for $300,000,
in $10 shares, of which only sufficient
will bc issued to provide for the necessary plant, the balance being retained in the treasury. The citizens
of Kamloops will be asked to take
up 6,000 shares, the balance to be issued being taken by the Iron Mask
mine-owners. This will provide for a
250-ton smelter, and Mr. Wallinder
of the Iron Mask states that if this
proposal is taken up a smelter will be
erected and in operation within 18
months. The preliminary hearing of
the proposition was favourably considered by the members of the council
and is likely to be endorsed by the
board of trade.

The King and Dr. Crenfell
Dr. Wilfred Grenfell, the Labrador
medical missionary, had an audience
of the King last month at Buckingham Palace. "I gave his Majesty a
brief resume of my work in Labrador," said Dr. Grenfell in an interview.  "What particularly struck me
was the King's keen interest in seafaring men, for it was on this aspect
of my work that he was most curious.
His knowledge of the hardships of
fishermen was quite surprising. His
inquiries, too, as to thc American
nurses in our hospitals were very
keen. We have a large number of
these American nurses, and his Majesty asked me to give him a full account of the work of the nurses. He
expressed his cordial admiration of
what they are doing. I was delighted with my audience, especially when
I discovered how intimate was the
King's knowledge of Labrador. His
interest in my work will bc a great
encouragement to me in the future."

The Majestic Theatre
Two strong Western films were
the big attraction at the Yates St.
house at the beginning of this week,
one of them dealing with the impossibility of warring against Nature
by endeavouring to eradicate the
primitive, impulses of a young Indian
by adopting him into a white family,
and the other being an exciting film
dealing with a girl, a sheriff and an
erring brother. Some day soon we
shall be seeing Mr. Christie building
a gigantic hall to accomodate the
crowds which throng the Majestic
every night.

The Romano's Theatre
"Was He Justified?" was a powerful film founded on an actual incident
which took place not so very long
ago, where a prospector was confronted with the alternative of killing
his wife or leaving her to suffer untold agonies without possibility of any
other relief than death in the end.
Roaring humour has been provided1
by the duelling scene between two
heroic (?) suitors for a lady's hand.
I turned in at Romano's one afternoon this week, long before my usual
hour and was surprised to find that
the theatre was even then fairly well
filled, though it was a fine afternoon.
A fact like this goes a long way to
prove that Romano's is an exceedingly popular house.

Gertrude Elliott in "The Dawn of

To the few of the many characterizations of Miss Gertrude Elliott
(Mrs. Forbes-Robertson) that are familiar to American theatregoers will
be added next Thursday, April 13, at
Victoria Theatre that of Glad, the
street waif of London, in Frances
Hodgson Burnett's play, "The Dawn
of a Tomorrow," a striking drama
that has all-season runs in New York
and London to its credit. In Glad,
Mrs. Burnett has drawn a character
that has all the appealing characteristics of her "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
with the addition of simple, naive and
charming qualities that remind one of
a strange mixture of Dickens, a touch
of Barrie, and the best of the authoress herself.

(By Onlooker)
Are Canadians simple and sincere?
A London society girl has declared
that she is weary of society and desires to lead "a simple and sincere
life." She intimates that a fruit farm
in British Columbia is to be her goal.
Evidently reciprocity has no terrors
for her, or perhaps she has never
heard of it. If the vicinity of Victoria is destined to be favoured by
her presence, how about Duncan's
■for the simple life?
Probably our friends in that delightful neighborhood are simple and
sincere, though if the society sick
London damsel should send a copy
of her visiting list with a title or two
in advance she will find it more effective than a barrelful of simplicity
Moral: Bring your halo with you,
even if you are only going to a fruit

Mr. Somerset Maugham has written a new play called "Loaves and
Fishes." As the title has a biblical
' sound, so the hero is thc Rev. Canon
Theodore Spratte. The Rev. Theodore seeks his loaves and fishes by
the matrimony route and is altogether a singularly unpleasant person, without a shred of sanctity. If
the stage holds the mirror up to life
as claimed it is to be hoped in this
case that the glass is distorted, and
the critical element of habitual playgoers has already condemned Mr.
Maugham's play as being a mere caricature, rather than as the writer
deems it, a satire.
An English lady predicts that
cross-saddle riding will never be universal, because forsooth, the masculine mind is still against it. Piff!
Women are tired of pretending they
have not got any legs.

A contemporary has an interesting
article telling of the work of a large
deputation of men and women who
recently interviewed the Provincial
Secretary of Ontario to urge upon the
Government the necessity of "taking
immediate steps to take greater care
of the feeble-minded people of the
Province, both for their own sakes
and for that of the country." Ontario is not the only province where
there are feeble-minded people, and
for the sake of those now staking
land in the Peace River district a deputation to instal immediate telegraphic communication to that neighborhood would earn everlasting gratitude. However, as rapid increases in
the value of real estate are the order
of the day, investors must not be
annoyed if they find they have staked
about twice as much land as their
capital can handle,

It is unfortunate that the Ladies'
Alexandra Club has not been completed during this lovely weather.
Thc situation of the Club's building
is an excellent one, and the frbnt
aspect unexceptionable.

A cooking school has commenced
operations in Victoria. An interesting demonstration was given on thc
mysteries of slicing bananas and peeling apples, also of beating olive oil
into a salad dressing. The latter operation  proved  somewhat  strenuous
and caused the white rose complexion
of the fair operator to become profusely tinged with the glory of the
peony, and the salad dressing was
finally completed by the assistant
cook who rattled away most valiantly
in the background. But with all due
credit to the cooking school, obituary
notices this week are normal.

Originality is always interesting,
and a young architect, a recent arrival in this city and of admitted ability in things artistic, has written in
addition to other inducements to enter his little office, the words "Internal Decorations." Carving the appendix is nothing new, but the Onlooker contemplates the idea of applying for an artistic stencil design
on the liver and predicts quite a
craze for this idea in fashionable society. Perhaps, however, it is scarcely "de rigeur" for the liver to make
light of the heart.

And more jaunty suits have coats of

coat that first won its way into feminine hearts under its title. One coat
of the kind seen in a satin costume
was an odd affair that had two sharp
points at the front and the back, the
point coming below the slightly lifted
girdle of the bodice. There was not
a suggestion of curve for the waist
line and the neck was round, and the
fastening a slanting line from the
neck to the bust. Five small buttons
fastened this opening. Tlle sleeves
were shapeless, ending at the elbow
without taper from the upper part.
At the Jeft side between the front
and back points there was a huge
knot catching the straight sash,
which consisted of one very long loop

Some of the new bandings in particular which arc going to be used not

AUTOMOBILISTS
j The Week somewhat reluctantly. publishes a letter on the subject of the Automobilist Delegation and their, interview
with the Attorney-General last week. The
reluctance is due to the fact that the writer resorts to extravagance in statement
and misrepresentation of facts and, what
could be more easily forgiven, winds up
by calling the Editor of this paper a
"motorphobe." Perhaps, however, his
greatest crime is an unusual attempt to
rhyme "calm" with "damn." It is impossible to traverse the whole of his letter,
which possibly some of our readers will
peruse for themselves. It is, however,
made abundantly clear why there is, and
is likely to be, a continued feud between
the law and the law-breakers represented
by Mr. Jackson. He is like the Irish Nationalists; it is not Home Rule that he
wants but a "casus belli." Just where
our correspondent gets his information
from is a mystery, as he is unable to trace
the report to anyone else he ventures with
his usual recklessness to place it on the
Attorney-General, and charges him with
having kept a private reporter to furnish
a "cooked" report to the Colonist. Now,
the Attorney-General unlike our correspondent, has considerable business to attend to, and to avoid rambling in his remarks is alleged to have written his reply.
This may or may not be true, but as the
custom makes for brevity and conciseness
there are not a few people who would be
greatly relieved to learn that others had
adopted the system. Mr. Jackson's characterization of Mr. Bowser's statements
and arguments as "inaccurate and raw"
will probably be accepted at its face value
by automobilists—and others. In his
concluding paragraph Mr. Jackson appears to complain because The Week suggested that the deputation ' went to scoff
and remained to pray." The Week begs
to assure him that no offence was meant;
indeed, when the article was written his
own name was not noticed among the delegation, or the latter part of the suggestion
would have been omitted. The moral of
our correspondent's letter seems to be
"when you go ,to interview the Attorney-
General, take your own reporter along
with you." Meanwhile, The Week congratulates the automobilists of Victoria on
having at last come to their senses in deciding to form a Club and discipline the
members. Perhaps, if The Week were the
Colonist it would pat itself on the back
and claim at least some credit for the
happy denouement; at any rate it has no
hesitation in saying that the Club will
have its hearty support in seeking a relaxation of the ten mile an hour rule when—
and not before—automobilists have shown
that they really intend to respect the law,
and to assist the authorities in punishing
indifferent and insolent law-breakers.

RIOTING AT PRINCE RUPERT
Matters are looking rather serious at
Prince Rupert. When it comes to an open
riot in the streets and a pitched battle
between policemen and citizens on one side
and strikers on the other, with bullets flying and blood flowing, such a situation
■ cannot be regarded with equanimity. The
telegraphic despatch in the daily press
does not offer any explanation. The trouble is that very heavy contracts for street
grading running into several hundred
thousand dollars were let by contract. The
contractors agreed to pay their men 37-V2
cents per hour; then a municipal election
came along and the city labourers demanded 45 cents an hour, which was
granted. Naturally enough the men
working for the contractors demanded a
similar wage, and whatever the merits of
the case may be their course would appear
natural in view of the fact that they were
working alongside their fellows who had
just been conceded an advance. Here,
however, their right to consideration would
appear to end, since, having failed to secure their demands by negotiation they
have resorted to extreme violence. When
the writer was in Prince Rupert four
months ago trouble was anticipated. It is
all due to the fact that in order to make
the biggest penny possible out of their contracts the contractors have brought into
Prince Rupert the lowest type of men who
could be found on this continent. The remark was common on the streets that they,
were far worse than any kind of Oriental.
They belong to the lowest type of European nationalities, who have been productive of trouble and strikes wherever the/
have gone. It will take a very strong arm
to put them down, but it will have to be
done, and they will have to be taught that
one of the conditions of living under the
British flag is obedience to British laws.
Meanwhile, there is no doubt that the contract system in connection with municipal
works has received a serious blow.
INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION
It is nearly forty years since John
Bright aroused the enthusiasm of the English people by his magnificent orations on
behalf of the Peace Society. From that
day to this the propaganda for the settlement of all international differences by
arbitration has been carried on. The sentiment of the civilized world is overwhelmingly in favour of the principle involved,
and some progress has been made in the
establishment of the Hague Tribunal
which has been so successful in dealing
with minor matters as to lead to the hope
that it might ultimately extend its sphere
of usefulness. Fresh interest-is imported
into this subject by the recent notable
speech of Sir Edward Grey, which was
acclaimed with delight both in England,
the United States and Canada. Not so
in Germany which, while giving an
academic acquiescence, is not prepared to
take any practical steps in the reduction
of armaments, or to bind herself to submit international differences in which she
may be .directly interested, to arbitration.
It is a many sided subject and involves
the strong individuality, the primal instincts and the essential rights of men and
of nations. While all sane men believe
that war should be avoided at any cost,
save the sacrifice of honour, there are
many sane men who believe that the final
arbitrament between nations, as between
individuals, must ever be the "force majeure." This is not to discount the value
of Sir Edward Grey's splendid address,
nor the efforts of those who are working
for universal peace; it is rather to encourage them by pointing out that the result
of their labours is not to be measured by
failure to reach the supreme goal. They
can lay the world under a heavy obligation long before that is reached. ,
THE CHINESE HEAD TAX
The Daily Press has called attention to
the fact that during the last fiscal year no
less a sum than $2,000,000 was paid into
the Dominion Treasury under the provisions of the Chinese head tax. The Colonist very truly says this proves that the
so-called Exclusion Law does not exclude.
The matter cannot be allowed to rest there,
and unless The Week is greatly mistaken
the problem will have to be faced again in
the near future. No demand for Oriental
labour, however insistent sftid urgent, must
be allowed to over-ride the mature determination of the Province to preserve Canada as "a white man's country." For
some time the imposition of the head-tax
sensibly diminished immigration; but that
time has passed, and the influx of John
Chinaman has been solely a matter of dollars and cents, in a country which is so
rich and prosperous that dollars and cents
"cut very little ice." The Week is in entire agreement with that part (JifMr. J. A.
McDonald's address before the Canadian
Club in which he pleaded for "the breeding of the best men," and the keeping of
the Anglo-Saxon race "pure and strong."
In its last issue the Oriental question is,
as The Week has always maintained, not
an economic but a racial one, and the time
has come when Orientals should be excluded "de facto"; not by a tax, which is
ineffective and which merely increases the
cost of living, but by a treaty or legislation which shall be absolutely prohibitive.
ORIENTAL IMMIGRATION
The Week and the Colonist are as wide
apart as the poles on the subject of Orien-
ta immigration. The week believes that
in the interests of ' a white man's country" and to avoid racial dangers of the
most profound character, the Oriental
must be absolutely kept out of British
Columbia. This contention is emphasized
by three very significant facts. The first
is that the Japanese are rapidly over-running California, becoming extensive landowners and slowly but surely building up
an international problem. They are clever
and aggressive; they cannot be kept down
except by keeping them out. The next is
that in spite of the $500 head-tax Chinamen are coming in as fast as ever; the
price does not prohibit. Again it is their
aggressiveness and the cupidity of Canadian contractors which is defeating the
wishes of the public. The third fact, and
possibly the most significant of all, is that
the Hindus who excited so much commiseration three years ago and were thought
to be a "feeble folk" are becoming rich
and influential, and demanding the right
of bringing in their wives and families.
If this were permitted, as the Colonist
advises, .it would be the beginning of a
system of which no man can fore-tell the
end, except that no power dn earth can
prevent inter-marriage to a disastrous degree in a province in whicii the male population so enormously outnumbers the female. To refuse the favour may work a
hardship among the Hindus; to grant it
would work an infinitely greater hardship
among people of our own race. The Week
does not advocate unfair treatment of any
man, least of all a British subject, but
the more effectually Oriental immigration
of every kind is discouraged the better it
will be for Canada and the Empire.
THE LAND ACT
For several years the Victoria Times
has been raving at the iniquities of the
Provincial Land Laws. Now that the
Government has, at the psychological moment, doubled the price of Crown lands,
and placed a reserve on many millions of
acres the Times counters with a column
of vilification en Mr. McBride, and, assuming that he has been finally forced to
act upon its advice, seems to entertain
doubts as to the wisdom of what it has
always been urging. Really, the Times
pays itself too great a compliment in supposing that its ill-bred diatribes have anything to do with the decision of the Government. The step which has been taken
has been under contemplation for many
months, but it was not until an extensive
and well organized raid was about to be
made on the Peace River lands that it was
decided to fire the double-barrelled shot
whicli at once retained control of those
lands by the Department and raised the
price of Crown lands throughout the Province. The justification for the latter part
of the policy is to be found in the fact
that all the great land companies, notably
the C. P. R. and the Hudson Bay Com-
pany, have advanced their prices. The
average price of agricultural lands on the
prairies has risen during the last few years
from $5.00 to $13.00. It would therefore
work no hardship for the British Columbia
Government to follow suit. The logical
development of the new policy should bo
that at the next session of Parliament all
public lands should be placed under reserve, and, except for pre-emption, sales
of land should be made only after survey
and through the Department.
THE SONGHEES RESERVE
The passing of the Songhees Reserve is
practically a "fait accompli." It is true
that the money is not yet jingling in the
pockets of Chief Cooper and his tribe, but
somewhat on the principle of the little
boy who was allowed to take a sniff at the
pastry-cook's door, they have been allowed
to see the bank books in which their names
and the amount of their dower is inscribed.
When the few formalities very properly
demanded by the paternal government at
Ottawa have been complied with Chief
Cooper and his friends will begin to draw
cheques, and to develop their new estate
upon modern, scientific and sanitary lines.
Already some of the ladies of the tribe
have invested largely in spring millinery
and   have   contributed   during  the   fine
weather of the present week to "the gaiel
of nations."   "All's weiT-tf&t ends wei"

Mr. McBride has shown once more.1
when it conies to a question of diploma|
he is a wonder.
A SEISMOLOGICAL OBSERVATORY
Until the sub-committee appointed'
the Board of Trade hands in its report I
may be as well to postpone any discussij
on this most important subject.   The Vfl
couver papers are getting bsuy, and
running columns of letters arguing that
such an observatory is established there
only one place for it and that is in conni
tion with the University at Point Gr.
Vancouverites are nothing if not enterpr
ing. They have pretty nearly got the eai
ancl now they want the heavens, but |
they will possess their souls in patience :
a few days they will see that Vancou^
is not "the only pebble on the beach," ev
where scientific research is concerned, al
that there are two or three reasons w|
Victoria is entitled to consideration.
THE COAL STRIKE
It is as well to be accurate in on
statements even in connection with c|
strikes.    The Colonist- stated on Tht
day that the C. P. R. is preparing to i
vast quantities of coal at Fort' Willisl
which will be mined in the United Stall
and will take the place of coal wh|
would have been mined in Fernie if
strike had not been brought on.    An\
matter of fact, the C. P. R. stores of i
at Fort William have always been secuj
from the United States.   The water tra
portation from the American mines, w|
duty added, is several dollars a ton
than the cost of transportation by
from Fernie.    Even in Winnipeg, i
hundred miles further West, more AmJ
can coal is consumed than Canadian.
BREAKING THE LAW
A week or so ago the Police authori
announced that there were other matt
than "speeding" which would receive tl
immediate attention, notably the driving
motor-cars by children under age, and
tooting of sirens.   In both respects the
is being disregarded daily, and as fai
The Week has been able to observe n<
ing has been done in the matter.   If tl
infractions of the law are to be suppres
by the voluntary action of the Automo
Club, well and good; if not, then the
lice should at least convey a word of wt
ing.   Automobile No. 965 is being
stantly driven round the city by yol
boys under age.   This is only one insta;
out of many.
CHRISTIAN CHARITY
The Week is informed by a lady actii
associated with the work of the Wom|
Council, the W.C.T.U. and the Y.W.(
that recently a lady came to Victoria,
perly accredited from a sister organizal
to invoke the assistance of the Victorij
ganizations in dealing with girls who
been rescued from a life of shame,
viously such girls can only be prov
for at a distance from the city where
have been accustomed to live.   The _

The Week would be glad to hear what

THE CANADIAN CLUB
The Week notices from a news
that the Halifax Canadian Club has ac|
ed a new mode of entertaining
structing its members.    It has launJ
out into a series of debates.   The Vicn
Canadian Club might do worse than|
low the lead; it might also seriously
sider the desirability of abolishing the I
ham luncheon, and holding its receptl
at a time and place when the comfort T
convenience of its members and its gi|
could be consulted.   Until the City
sesses a commodious and well-equijj
room and a public-spirited caterer it ]
do far better to confine its entertainn
to the proverbial "feast of reason
of soul."
