THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1910
TIRRING UP STRIFE
The Founder of Christianity on one
liemorable occasion  made   a declaration,
fhich in these latter days is being curious-
interpreted hy some of His followers,
lhe declaration was: "I came not to send
leace but a sword."   When a Canon interprets this statement so as to justify the
[reaching of a crusade in which the only
Irinciple   involved   is   one   of  temporal
lights, it would appear to the average in-
ellect that he is putting a considerable
Brain on the obvious meaning, and yet
[lis  is precisely the  position in which
|'anon O'Meara has placed himself.     In
ligaging in a fight against constituted
liithority, the end of which neither lie nor
Iny other man can foresee, he is not only
misapplying Divine authority, but inex-
lisably overlooking the reminder of the
[reatest theologian of the Christian era
[lat "the weapons of our warfare are not
[irnal."   Abandoning the practice of law,
l'anon O'Meara embraced the duties and
psition of an Anglican clergyman, and
fith commendable zeal betook himself to
lie wilds of the far North, where hardy
[ioneers were blazing the trail for the
acoming of civilization.   The population
Jf the Great North Country may have
[een scant, but there were at least some
jiousands of hungry souls to be fed, and
■verywhcre   rough,   rugged   miners   and
littlers willing to listen with respect to
|ie proclamation of the Word of Life; for
lowhere does the devout Christian minster meet with a warmer reception than
In the mining camp.    If Canon O'Meara
lad worked upon  these lines he would
lave justified his change of profession, and
lie would havc taken his place in the rank
If many noble ministers of his Church,
like Bishop Bompas,  for  instance, who
[.pent a lifetime amid the discomforts and
privations of the North ancl accounted
It nothing, so long as they found scope
for their ministrations.   After a well-spent
]ife some of these men came down to tell
lin eager, interested world of their twen-
Ty-five years' experience in the most isolated and forbidding sections of the Continent.    In the course of their labours
lhey had been called upon constantly to
tvield a sword, but it was one whicli was
Turned   at  the  destruction  of  influences
iwhicli made war1 upon the peace of the
soul, and not the arrogation of temporal
[rights vested in constitutional authorities,
rrhey recognized the distinction so finely
(drawn   by   their   Master,   between   "the
rollings of Caesar and the things of God,"
land in consequence their spiritual work
Twas not handicapped by material considerations, and they prepared a field whicli
Iby common consent is now "white unto
Iharvest."   Canon O'Meara has been more
ljntent  on  agitating  the  school question,
land in  stirring  up  strife  in connection
kith Indian land titles than on pursuing
liis spiritual avocation.   His return from
||.he North is not for the purpose of stimulating interest in the cause of Christian
[missions,   but   of   preaching   a   crusade
Against the Provincial Government, and
Iigainst Canadian citizens who, in pursuance  of  their  statutory  rights,  have   at
'•reat expense and in face of much hanl-
jdiip pushed tlieir way into tlie northern
regions of thc Province to acquire possession of land.    Tu  any case in whicii
iheir procedure is not in accordance with
he Statutes it is futile and therefore needs
10 remonstrance from anyone;   in any in
[vhich they have proceeded in a lawful way
lhey must, and  will be, upheld by the
llovernment.    Tlieir  position  cannot  lie
improved   by tlie excited   utterances   of
Canon O'Meara, who in this matter, if
he be not "as wise as a serpent," should
be "as harmless as a dove." The only occasion for regret at his ill-judged intrusion will be if the Indians attach any
importance to his "cloth," and allow themselves to be deluded into the notion that
he is a person of such importance as to
entitle his statements to some weight.
There is always the danger of inflaming
the Indian mind, which is very susceptible to emotional and passionate appeals.
Canon O'Meara will have a great deal to
answer for if he adds fuel to the flame,
and it is hard to conceive of a Christian
minister lending himself to a course of
procedure which may have such disastrous results, especially when the matter
in question lies so entirely without his
legitimate purview. Into the legal aspects of the question The AVeek does not
intend to enter. They have been thoroughly canvassed, and whatever consideration may be due to the Naas Indians,
it cannot possibly embrace the abandonment of a position which has been maintained by the Government for half a century, and which, if open to revision would
be so far-reaching in its effects as to bring
about a social revolution. The Week has
always stood up for the rights of the Indians; it was the first, and for a long
time the only paper, to assert that the
Songhees Indians would have to receive
the same treatment, in the settlement of
their dispute as if they were white men,
but it is a far call from maintaining the
rights of the Indians to a Reserve on
which they have been placed, and which
they have accepted, to allowing the Naas
Indians, and inferentially through them
all other Indians, to claim title to the
whole country which they once occupied,
regardless of the limits prescribed by their
appointed Reserves.
VICTORIA RACE MEETING
Last week Victoria held a six-day race
meeting, which was attended by five thousand people, the attendance on the closing
day reaching fifteen hundred. This would
give an average of nearly eight hundred
and fifty a clay, ancl as the number of free
passes issued did not exceed two hundred
ancl fifty, the figures show that about six
hundred people paid for admission every
day. The attendance demonstrated that
Victoria is in favour of a race meeting.
As to the conduct of thc meeting The
Week believes that no criticism can be
offered; there was no disorderliness; no
noise, ancl no 'tough" element. The
judge, Mr. R. F. Leighton, was scrupulously fair. The races were honestly run
ancl anyone at all "an fait" with the
horses ancl their past performances was
able to pick the winners with tolerable accuracy. This is evidenced by the fact that,
taking the week through, a large majority
of the favourites won, ancl on the last day
a well-known newspaper reporter, who is
very little of a betting man, named six
winners out of seven, and fourteen horses
in the money out of twenty-one. These
facts are mentioned only to confirm the
statement that the meeting was well conducted. The Week has been furnished by
the management of thc Country Club with
some figures bearing on the takings and
profits of the book-makers. These figures
show that the total amount taken in in six-
days by ihe "bookies," ancl this includes
the Club book, was ninety thousand dollars. Only one book of the eight operating was able to show a profit, the amount
being five hundred dollars. The other
book's lost amounts varying from three
hundred to three thousand dollars. The
total amount given away in purses was
seven thousand, five hundred and fifty dollars, which was furnished by the bookmakers under agreement with the Club,
that being the consideration for allowing
them to be admitted. In this connection
it is interesting to know that the Club
book also lost money. A word as to the
financial result, to the City, of the meeting. The book-makers lost, Vietoria
tradesmen provided seventy-six horses
with feed for ten days, and hotel accommodation for an average of four hundred
and twenty-five people for ten days. This
represented the number of outsiders who
attended the meeting. If the horse-keep
be valued at a dollar a day and the total
expenditure of the visitors at five dollars,
it will be seen that Victoria tradesmen
were enriched to the tune of at least
twenty-two thousand dollars. As to the
future, The Week favours the continuance
of race meetings similar to the one just
held, as furnishing a healthy and enjoyable recreation to the community, but it
also favours the introduction of the Paris
Mutuelle system in lieu of professional
book-making, and it is to be hoped that
between now and next summer, the leading race-tracks of Canada will have inaugurated the system, which involves considerable expense and delay, in which case
the Country Club of Victoria wull no
doubt follow suit.
THE WATER QUESTION
The Week can afford to speak with
bated breath on the subject of the water
question, because things are coming its
way. It was the first paper to point out
that the cost of going to Sooke Lake
would be prohibitive at the present time,
and that W. L. Adams' estimate of the
cost of the tunnel was about half what it
should be. By no process can the Mayor
again foist his pet scheme on the ratepayers, and the course all along advocated
hy The AVeek will have to be, followed.
That course is, first to acquire the property of thc Esquimalt AVaterworks Co.
ancl harness it up for general distribution
throughout the city limits, afterwards to
exploit the Sooke Lake areas with a view
to developing them at a later date. It is
the inexorable logic of events which is
slowly but surely driving the City to this
solution of the long vexed problem, ancl
the sooner the question is dealt with on
this basis the better, ancl needless to say,
the cheaper.
CONSTITUTED AUTHORITY
Rumours are flying about the City to
the effect, that the newly appointed City
Engineer is not reclining upon a bed of
roses, that his subordinates are insubordinate, and that they are encouraged in
their contumacy by the Mayor. Tlie daily
press credits thc latter with the desire to
bring such discredit upon the present system of government as to induce the ratepayers to abandon it for one of Controllers or Commissioners, in whicli His
Worship will be the figurehead. Wherever
the truth may lie it is certain tbat the
City Engineer is not being loyally served
by his Department, and it is tlie duty of
the Council to probe this matter to the
bottom. The AVeek is informed tliat the
resolution of the Council, placing the City
Engineer in absolute control of his Department has already become a dead letter.
Tf this is so there is only one course open.
The Council must insist on their instructions being carried out. Failing thnt tlie
City Engineer will undoubtedly resign,
ancl for the same reason ns his predecessor—"interference"; but being a more determined man he will not submit to tiie
humiliation for twenty years.

A NOVEL LIBEL SUIT
Considerable interest has been aroused
of late by the numerous libel suits brought
against newspapers in England and Canada. One of the most remarkable has just
been settled in London by Mr. Justice
Darling. It was brought against the well-
known Non-conformist Divine, Dr. Hor-
ton, the plaintiff being Lord Alfred Douglas, editor of the "Academy." The allege], libel was contained in a letter by
Dr. Horton, published in the "Daily
News," accusing the "Academy" of Roman Catholic bias, ancl the publishers
were coupled with Dr. Horton in the action. Dr. Horton stated in his defence
that there was an apostolate of the press
working in favour of Roman Catholics in
England. There were very few papers on
which the apostolate had not secured an
agent, whose business it was to excise any
piece of news or any speech or notice of
a hook, which told against Rome. Such
men were on the stall's of papers without
the knowledge of their employers. Dr.
Horton declared that all this work is clone
secretly, ancl directly attention is directed
to it it is withdrawn. The jury returned
a verdict for the defendant and Lord Alfred Douglas and the "Academy" had to
pay costs. Tlie verdict was interesting,
not only as illustrating tlie freedom which
is allowed to honest criticism, but in the
light which it throws on the methods
adopted to influence the press, a matter
which will," no doubt, receive due attention, especially in view of the present
agitation for revision of the Coronation
Oath.
AMERICAN CRITICISM
The Cosmopolitan has long enjoyed an
unenviable notoriety as an anti-British
magazine of the most uncompromising
type. Its attacks on public men who are
engaged in political work, whilst indefensible, are not surprising, viewed in the
light of the general policy of the magazine,
but it would he difficult to quote a more
execrable illustration of bad taste than
the following attack on a modest scientist,
of a most loveable type. How long will
intelligent Americans tolerate such deplorable exhibitions of ignorance and
spleen .
"Sib George H. Darwin, after whose.
.NAME TAILS HALF THE ALPHABET IN
srei!   ARRANGEMENTS   AS   K.O.B.,
F.E.S., I.L.D., I). SCV ETC. i
"His father was Charles Darwin,
—he of thc Theory—and he himself is
a professor in Trinity College. Cambridge.
Had he not been the former, lie would not
have become the latter. The English
powers that be, having a spare "Sir" at
command, conferred it upon him. Colleges in Glnsgow, Dublin, nnd Padua have
voted him 'degrees" and per consequence
half the alphabet tails in after his name
in single lint important file like geese
crossing a village green. Professor Darwin is a Kentish man, nnd wns horn in
L845. lie studied law, but gave it up to
stare at stars and call himself nn astronomer. There is no question as to his
earnestness, and he has gone as far as
Sicily to look nt an eclipse. Also he
makes scientific side-flights into earthquakes and volcanoes. Pompous, not profound, of more words than ideas, Professor Darwin is in all things English, and
fulfils the general impression of John
Bull. Having both time and tlie itch to
write, he has given us papers on Deflections of the Plumb Line, the Harmonic
Analysis of Tidal Observations, and the
Mechanical Conditions of a Swarm of
Meteorites." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1910

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
The Victoria Theatre
Havc you seen thc C. P. R. Pictures? If you have not, you have
made the biggest mistake of your life.
They are the best pictures, the most
instructive and thc most entertaining
that I have ever had the pleasure of
seeing. Imagine the luxury of going
all thc way to Calgary, of seeing
everything en route worth seeing, of
being told about the points of interest, and all the time you are sitting in a comfortable theatre scat
without any of the worries of travel.
That is just exactly what has been
going on at the Victoria Theatre, and
I sincerely hope that anyone who
sees this in time, and who has not
been to the above mentioned house,
will go this Saturday night and take
his family with him. I have travelled
over the C. P. R., but I have always
been unlucky enough to pass through
the interesting regions by night. I
know of them well, because I did all
kinds of typewriting work for Mr.
Percy F. Godenrath, who has conducted advertising campaigns for the
Company, and who probably knows
the Province better than any other
man. I have "batched" with him and
have heard him talk of these places,
for instance, Lake Louise, Emerald
Lake, Mt. Glacier, the National Park
at Banff, and the pictures were therefore doubly interesting to mc, for I
had been through the same part of
the country, but by night. I don't
thing that I have ever been, as a reporter, to a show whicii filled me
with so much enthusiasm. I only
wish that the School Board could
have seen their way clear to take the
theatre for a couple of days and send
every child, during school hours, and
call it a geographical lesson. It
would have done a lot more good
than most of the stuff taught. Mr.
Denham is to bc heartily congratulated on having secured these pictures
for the week, and though on the first
night there was a scanty house, I
have not the slightest doubt but that
the universal satisfaction which was
expressed by the few will havc resulted in crowded houses for the rest
of the week.    If this  has  not been
the  case  I,  for  one,  shall  feel   disappointed.
The New Grand
Manager Jamieson is indeed to be
congratulated for the entertainment
hc is affording his patrons this
week. "Crackerjack," is slang, but it
is the only word which really fills
the bill. The whole show is good,
but I would specify three turns which
are in the high line. The Three Gordon Highlanders arc excellent. Though
it might take a man born north of
the Tweed to appreciate them to the
full, a humble little Sassenach like
myself appreciated them for all he
was worth. I am not worth much,
but I do know a good thing in thc
vaudeville line when I see it, and this
is one of the good ones. Harry
Tsuda is a Japanese equilibrist; he is
advertised as "Marvellous," and on
this occasion advertising does not lie.
He is far and away the most marvellous man in the balancing business
that I have ever seen. "237 miles
from New York!" Eh what? Have
you seen it? If not, go. It's a
musical comedy and a mock heroic
opera all combined, and it's fine. All
the other turns are good.
Pantages Theatre
The proprietors of the Johnson
Street Vaudeville House have once
more convinced themselves of the fact
that an occasional turn of Musical
comedy is popular in Victoria. In
"A New York Girl" Lewis & Lake
havc been scoring a big success.
There is plenty of fun, clean fun and
laughter-making fun. The chorus is
good; far better than any other offered at the same house.
Romano's Theatre
Two thousand, fivc hundred feet of
Moving Pictures. That is the big
draw at Romano's. The subject of
all these feet of films is entitled
"Special Drink" and the Pictures are
well worth seeing.
Majestic Theatre
The management of The Majestic
have been peculiarly fortunate this
week in tlieir Pictures. I enjoyed
myself so much on the evening that
1 was there that I sat through the
second show. The Pictures were
good and clear, and I noticed that
there was less of that quivering,
which so often spoils cinematograph
shows. I was there early in the
week and by the time that this appears the Pictures will havc been
changed, but if the Saturday night
entertainment is half as good as the

One of those thrilling railroad pictures has been the feature at the Empress this week. Heroines, heroes,
villians and trains, all mixed up together; just the sort of blood-curdling stuff I love. I was glad to see

te these clever monkeys. It will be
le time of their lives.
IA foreign importation making its
Jremiere in America are the Scott
Irothers, two of the most daring and
ldllful gymnasts that have ever
tossed the Atlantic. They present
limerous equilibristic specialties that
re entirely new and novel, including
leir exclusive feat known as the
Jcotts' Loop the Loop, an accom-
lishment that has been a sensational
|ature of European capitals. It is
ne of the most thrillful feats ever
J tempted by a gymnast. They carry
|i upright circle 2 ft. wide and 12 ft.
diameter. The men take head to
pad positions with their feet braced
fcainst the highest points of the cir-
Ic. In this position they run around
hveral times. The secret of this
larvelous feat is accuracy and the
last misjudgment or loss of balance
leans serious fatality as the men are
jways in a perilous position. This
ccomplishment is without exception
lie limit in sensations and holds the
lidience breathless.
The coloring of genius is one of
lie most conspicuous points in thc
|ork of Beulah Dallas, the sweet-
[oiced Southern singe,*, one of the de-
Ightful numbers of the Grand pro-
1-anime next week. Miss Dallas is as
jetty as a picture, as magnetic as a
littery and has a voice of rare qual-
ly. Her songs are of the rollicking
lyle that always please an audience,
lid her gowns are dreams, for gor-
tousness and style.
IA conglomeration of comedy, pat-
Jr, songs and piano playing that is
ighly amusing will be offered by
Jarry and Katherine Mitchell. Their
l.nsensicality is termed "Crazy for a
lunutc." Mr. Mitchell is an accen-
|atcd fellow with a style of humor
nt would make any "Sober Sue"
lugh ancl his comedy creations are

l_\ comedienne and possesses an ex-
ellent voice, which she uses to ad-
lintagc.

|/ancouver  Empress   Theatre   Stock
to Come Here July 4th
After much negotiation and many
:onccssions, Managers Elkin & Dul-
(.acked nightly.
:ured  the  famous   Empress  Theatre
Stock   Company   -of    Vancouver,   to
ilay an  engagement in Victoria  for
wo    weeks,    commencing    Monday,
jfuly 4th.   This organization has been
(.naintained continuously at the  Emu-ess   Theatre,   Vancouver,   for   two
./ears, during which time the theatre
nas  been   packed   nightly,   and   the
:ame   of  the   company    has    spread
[:>ver the entire west, .causing it to be
icknowlcdged  as  the  leading  Stock
Company on the Pacific Coast.    The
tandard  of  performances  has  been
if the highest order and the company
he best and highest salaried in their
espective lines of any dramatic organization.   The plays selected to be
Presented  have  not  previously  been
:lone  by  any  company  in  Victoria,
lo that attraction will have a double
laim to patronage.    So great is the
fuccess of the company in Vancouver
ihat it is impossible to get seats miss applied for nearly a week in ad-
lance.   The bill for Monday, Tuesday
find Wednesday, July 4th, 5th and 6th,
l/ill be the celebrated play "Trilby,"
Vho has not been entranced by this
Dreat novel by Guy Du Maurier? The
;rama has been equally as successful
3  the book, and was  presented by
jir H. Beerbohm Tree in London, to
jhenomenal business and the play is
ill on tour in all the British Pro-
mces.   The thrilling story of "Tril
by" and the weird creation of "Sven-
gali" will bc magnificently performed. Miss Isabelle Fletcher, the popular leading woman of the company,
has made a tremendous success in the
role, while "Svengali," "Little Billee"
and "Taffy" will have able exponents.
The bill for Thursday, Friday and
Saturday (with matinee) will be an
up-to-date racing comedy drama
"Wildfire." This was the starring
vehicle of the celebrated actress, Miss
Lillian Russell, who appeared in it
for two years. It is said to be a
whirlwind of laughter and dramatic
situations, going with a vim that interests from the rise to the fall of
the curtain. ' Both these plays will
be produced with all the magnificent
stage settings given at thc Empress
theatre, as the scenery will be brought
over complete from Vancouver for thc
presentation of these successes. When
it is also announced that prices of
seats for this engagement will be the
very popular schedule of 35c, 50c,
and 75c, it will be realized that Victoria is to have a theatrical bargain
that should cause the theatre to be

Victoria Streets
June  22nd,   1910.
The   Editor  The  Week.
Sir,—Your well deserved criticism
on the state of Rockland avenue having borne good fruit, will you, at
your earliest convenience walk up
Burdette avenue (from Cook street to
Linden avenue) and frankly say what
is your opinion of it?
Three months since, we were to
have a permanent sidewalk! The
wooden walk (though it was patched
up last week with about a dozen new
boards) is rotten and nearly every
board catches your shoe sole; the
weeds and rank grass are knee high
and more. Are wc supposed to pitch
in and clean up the street, despite
the heavy taxes we pay for boulevards and streets being made and
kept in order (in other parts of the
city) ?
Eyesores like the upper part of
Burdette avenue will not enhance
Victoria's reputation for beauty, and
I think the remark passed to me by
an American visitor was deserved.
"Yes, Victoria might be made a
pretty city, but she is like a woman
careless as to her underwear, and neglecting her teeth and nails, and it
spoils  her  appearance  altogether."
The truth is not always pleasant.
Yours truly,
"ASHAMED OF MY STREET."

Yachting News
The yacht "Pastime," of the Oregon Yacht Club is here, with Mr. and
Mrs. R. R. Boyer and party aboard.
The "Pastime" will represent the Oregon Yacht Club at the International
Regatta at Victoria on July 4th, Sth
and 6th. She is a very comfortable
cruiser, with accommodation for at
least six people. While talking to
Commodore Cuppage of the Victoria
Yacht Club, Mr. Boyer stated that he
intended cruising in these waters for
some time, appreciating the scenic
and climatic advantages of this coast.
The Victoria Yacht Club has completed all arrangements for the Regatta taking place next week. Every
detail has been attended to, and the
affair should prove a record success.
A most artistic programme has been
prepared, which reflects great credit
on the designers, and for which there
is sure to be much demand. The
prizes are also very handsome; they
are displayed in thc window of Wilson's store on  Government street.
The Union Club are providing a
band on the water front, and the Dallas Hotel will serve tea during the
afternoon. Full information regarding the races and entertainments will
appear on the Official Programme.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
Woman
She cometh into the world with
nothing to wear, and continueth so;
and complaineth all thc days of her
life because thereof.
In her infancy she admireth thc
pinkness of her cheeks in the mirror,
and resolveth that they shall never
grow less pink. And, lo, they never
do!
In her childhood she demaudeth
mock babies, yea, many scores of
them. With these she playeth until
upon her cometh a weariness so great
that she cannot bear one baby that
is real.
In the day of her girlhood she worshiped matinee idols. And hath
measles and dreams. Puppy love
biteth her soft heart many times, and
• high school boys her soft neck a
few times—if her head be like her
neck.
In thc days of her young womanhood she loveth all men, and wisely,
for they are foolish and much may
be got out of them. A few she loveth too well for their own good.
These she marryeth.
Ere the day cometh when she acknowledged the designation "middle-
aged matron," she hath accumulated
a fortune by matrimony.
And she tireth of the chase for the
latest thing in husbands, deciding
rather to let bad enough alone—for
he might be worse.
And she gocth in for charity, yea,
with both feet, and danceth all night
at a charity ball.
And, lo, on the morning thereafter,
Opportunity, disguised as a poor widow with nineteen starving children,
knocketh. And thc maid darcth not
to awaken her mistress, who at that
hour taketh her beauty sleep.
She organizcth mothers' clubs to
teach the female of the slums how to
care for its young. She hath deep
knowledge of the subject, having no
young of her own to upset the theories whicii she dcriveth from books
written by thc wise virgins who know
all things appertaining thereto.
She fighteth Father Time with
beauty doctors, and groweth old slowly—but at last. She taketh gout in
her feet and bridge fever in her head,
and never recovereth therefrom.
"Requiescat in pace" we would say,
for wc were among those whom she
loved and married; but for a bridge
fiend there is 110 hope.
Reassuring
Robbie ran into thc sewing-room
and cried: "Oh, mama! There's a
man in the nursery kissing Frau-
lein."
Mama dropt her sewing and rushed
for the stairway.
"April fool!" said Robbie, gleefully.
"It's only papa."
Suited Norah
Norah had been guilty of what was
considered an indiscretion, so the mistress of the house called her to "step
the carpet." "If such a thing occurs again, Norah." said thc mistress,
"I shall havc to get another servant!" And Norah said: "I wish yer
would—there's easily enough work for
two of us!"
Evidently Out
"I went around to call on Smith
last night, and he talked fifteen
minutes without stopping."
"Where was  his wife?"

There was a song once; I don't
remember who wrote it, or who sang
it. In fact thc only thing which I
do remember about it was a little refrain, which kept on repeating:
"Oh, my dear young friends, pray
do be  careful."
This refrain came into my head on
Tuesday last when J contemplated
the condition of Langley Street at
the corner of Yates. When I considered the pitfalls and snares which
beset my dear young friends in the
ordinary course of their passage
through life, I grieved that a fatherly
City Council should allow such a
state of things to exist. I watched
an unfortunate gentleman driving a
delivery waggon. Bumpetty-bump,
bumpetty-bump he came; one wheel
high in thc air at one moment, the
othed wheel just as high at the next.
I felt sorry for him, It reminded mc
rather of Bunyan's account of Christian's journey through the Valley of
the Shadow of Death. Whichever
way thc unlucky man went he was
bound to fall into some pit or other.
And, let me remind you, Langley
street is the parallel to Government
street; it can hardly be considered
a business street but when it is taken
into consideration that practically all
thc lawyers in town have their offices
in the vicinity, and that any person
consulting a lawyer is bound to walk
either down or up Langley street,
well, it is a pretty hard proposition
for a stranger who wants to have
his will made. The odds are that hc
will die intestate.   Another death trap
there is in the same region. Just
take a stroll below Bastion street and
consider the state of the crossing below thc Law Courts. Why the legal
profession haven't put their united
wits together and compelled the
Council to take notice passes my comprehension. Possibly they were waiting for one who passeth them in understanding to point the matter out.
*     *     *
What has happened to Alderman
Humber's most excellent motion
which came up within the past few
months with regard to public conveniences? Is nothing ever going to be
done about it? I consider that it is
not only foolish, but iniquitous, that
in a city which advertises herself as
Victoria does, there should be no
such accommodation for visitors. It
is not a particularly savoury subject to talk about, but I have not
hesitated to do it in the past, and I
am not going to hesitate to do it
now. Somebody, either in the press
or in thc Council has got to take the
matter up. So far I have been thc
only person in thc press, and Aid.
Humber the only man in the Council.
Our arguments coincided, the principal point on which wc appear to have
agreed being that the absence of such
conveniences was literally driving
men to drink. The reason for such
a conclusion is obvious, even to the
meanest intelligence, and nobody can
accuse either the Mayor or any of the
Councillors of possessing the latter.
The objection re the cost of erecting
such places is ridiculous, because the
interest on any capital sum expended
would bc more than met by a small
charge for the use of basins or other
parts of the establishment; even as in
dear Old England. She may be away
behind thc times in many ways; her
houses arc old and bath-rooms are
often non-existent; her telephones are
luxuries and her electric cars are almost a novelty, but—she doesn't compel her men to go into public houses
when Nature calls.
I went to a Revivalist meeting last
Sunday night.   I had often heard of
such things, but had never attended
one, and  I  hope  that  I  shall  never
attend another.    I know neither who
the man was nor what organization
he represented, but I  do know that
to ask educated men and women to
listen to a man whose language was
ungrammatical,     whose     arguments
were  illogical and whose  speech  (I
can't call it a sermon) was as full of
redundancy as his voice was of unnecessary noise, is an insult both to |
their  intelligences  and  to  the  cause
which he was supposed to represent.
Fortunately he did not use the disgusting expressions of the notorious
Billy   Sunday.    If  he  had   done   I;
should certainly have made a scene.,
But I cannot comprehend why it is |
that so many men who are absolutely ;
incompetent should arrogate to them-'
selves that most difficult of all things,:
namely, the pointing out to others the ;
error of their ways and the persuad-1
ing of them to lead the higher life.   I j
do not want anyone to take my re- j
marks  as  applying to  the  Salvation i
Army.   Their work lies in  different:
paths  and thej   cake  people  on  the
street as they pass along and  don't j
advertise   themselves.   The   one   re-1
deeming feature of the meeting that
I attended on Sunday night was that
there was no collection.
*     *     *
As I have more than once remarked it is hard to know what to do with
oneself on a Sunday in Victoria, but
I have at last solved the problem to
my own satisfaction. I have found a
place where I can get really good
bathing, tl vatcr being just at the
right temperature for my own rather
exacting constitution. There is a
good sandy beach too; none of your
pebbly, rocky places where it is an
agony to go in and a still worse one
to come out. Fowl Bay will be my
future address on the first day in thc
week, and if anyone wants mc in a
hurry he can ring mc up at the Tea
To Woman—in her higher, nobler aspects, whether
wife, widow, grass-widow, mother-in-law, hired girl, telegraph operator, telephone helloer, queen, book-agent, wet
nurse, stepmother, boss, professional fat woman, professional double-headed woman and professional beauty—
God bless her!

especially from the vintage of 1900. We have just received a splendid consignment of this peerless brand, and
take great pleasure in presenting this most perfect of all
wines to our patrons' notice. It will now be listed at
every reliable hotel, bar, club and cafe in British Columbia.
Your licensed grocer should be able to supply you with
"Cordon Rouge" for home use. If he is unable to do so,

For a long time I thought that this

In   Tuesday   evening  I   wandered
}n to the Outer Wharf in order
|see  "The  Marama"  come  in.    I
told  that  there  was  a  famous
Jpany of fighters on board, and I
it  my  duty  to  go  and  inspect
As a matter of fact there was
one,    the    remainder    having
liged boats at Honolulu, but that
I was the great Fitzsimmons, and
|iodly crowd had assembled to see
I  fear that few achieved their
lition  as  the  redoubtable  "Bob"
■sat on the far gangway and look-
in  ordinary  person.     What
ie most was the fact that so
eople assembled to see a prize
lighter, when so often men, who have
distinguished themselves in the field,
who are world famous diplomatists,
who have achieved distinction in other
ways, arrive, and not a soul thinks
it worth his while to go and see them.
Another thing which surprised me
was to see the "all sorts and conditions of men" who were allowed on
board the liner. I had been amused
by tlie remarks of a gang of young
ragamuffins, as they criticized the passengers coming down the gangway.
They ought to have been hit with a
very big stick, but I confess that I
enjoyed listening to them. But I was
astounded when, after looking over
the boat, I found them inspecting the
dining saloon. I suppose that this is
the true spirit of democracy and I
don't know that I had any more right
on board than they had, but—"I hae
me doots."

Well, in the course of time I left
the wharf, and I was more than horrified to scc the accommodation provided for visitors disembarking at
"The City Beautiful." The sidewalks
are abominable, the lighting is atrocious and the general impression
which must be conveyed, very disparaging. One would have thought
that a place like Victoria, which caters so extensively to tourists, would
have made some efforts to make the
first impressions pleasant. But, no;
she relies on the Parliament Buildings, Beacon Hill and the Gorge Park
to fascinate those who come to admire her beauties. She makes a mistake of course; wc all make mistakes,
but any resident in the James Bay
district will tell you that the Gateway
to the Dominion is a disgrace to thc
people responsible. I have an idea
that the City is not entirely to blame
for this; the Outer Wharf is practically owned by a man who is as well
