THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 23, 1908
Onb Doixai Pwt Annum
A letter will be found in
Ire and the correspondence columns
It Live. 0f this issue signed " Sub
scriber." It is from tlie pen
a prominent ancl influential citizen of
Ictoria, a man closely in touch with many
l.portant interests and well equipped for
jiting upon any matter affecting the welte of the City. Whilst not agreeing with
that he says, or at any rate not going
lite as far as lie goes, The AVeek en-
Irses his main contention which is that
|_re is a danger in Victoria of too much
Imd-motherly legislation, too much coding, too much prescribing of "thou shalt''
b "thou shalt not" for the plain, ordin-
citizen, who is not a law breaker and
lo desires to do justly and live rightly.
|aen it comes down to recognizing and
ling with breaches of the law and social
lis there is no difference of opinion, the
■amunity is a unit; the law must be
lyed, it must be enforced, the social
lis must be suppressed. But when it
lies to regulating the lives of the people
|building folds, erecting fences ancl seek-
to drive them like a flock of sheep,
Ire are at least some who resent the in-
Iference, ancl the most unfortunate as-
pt of the case is that the result of so
|ch injudicious domineering is to weaken
hands of legitimate reformers and to
Ip to perpetuate conditions which all
lire to terminate. Xo one questions the
Itivcs which animate the various Helm organizations of this City, but here
^Isewhere zeal has outrun discretion, and
element which calls itself by the name
alienating public sympathy by the fre-
Iney and unreasonableness of its attacks
bn interests which are legitimate and
ich are entitled to fair treatment. Fur-
Jr the Reformers are alienating the sup-
It of hundreds of people who object to

Ithat because the Reform League or the
lizens League or the Ministerial Asso-
Ition or some other Association has deed that it is wrong. All men do not
|ik alike, beyond absolute compliance
li the law considerable latitude must be
l)wed, especially in a now country. The
Istantly recurring attacks upon all en-
led in the Licensed Victuallers' business
i as unfair as they are ill-advised. This
[tter can and should be dealt with on
entirely different basis. Instead of
[•assing the trade until it has no security
no certainty even for a few months
■J.ad, let the community, if it be bent
drastic restriction, have the courage
its convictions and take the bull by
1 horns. Everyone knows that there lire
ree times as many licenses in Victoria
tare necessary. \Yliy not cut out two-
irds of them and thus eliminate all tlie
class dives, saloons, and a few of tlie
[re than questionable hotels. The others
lid do all the legitimate business whicli
i community requires and no one would
[dry. The Licensed Victuallers are a
[-abiding section of tlie community, they
te no sympathy with ill-conducted
jses, nor is it to their interest that they
|uld be continued. The best policy is
cut down the licenses to the require-
■[its of the community, and then insist
(strict enforcement of the law. Willi
brence to the recreations of the people,
the drastic proposals of Alderman
jason, some of whicli wcre very pro-
llv eliminated, too much credit cannot
»'iven to Aldermen Pauline and llendor-
for their vigorous stand against what
|ild have been to say the least of it digest aud a gross breach of faith.    It
Ik sonic courage, in face of the influ-
EDITORIAL
ences at work, to combat Alderman Glea-
son's proposals, but these men had that
courage and by their action voiced the
opinion of a very considerable section of
tlie community, which is getting more than
a little bit tired of the so-called Reform
policy. If Aid. Gleason ancl his supporters are in earnest, and are prepared to
undertake legislative reform work, let them
turn their attention to the enforcement
of existing laws, especially in certain
quarters of the town, ancl when that has
been properly attended to it will be quite
time enough to consider new legislation.
Suggestion to
The Canadian Club has
entertained several visit-
Canadian Club. 0rs, more or less distim
guished, but lately the
supply is hardly equal to the demand, and
there are long intervals during which we
glean nothing of the opinions of those
whose mission it is to tell us what we
ought to think about ourselves. In a few
weeks Victoria will be honoured by a visit
from a gentleman who is in every respect
well equipped to addres the Canadian
Club. He has addressed Institutes in
London and New York, and has proved
himself to be a brilliant ancl attractive
speaker. He is a Canadian born and has
attained the highest possible position in
his chosen profession, in fact in two Continents his name is a household word. To
invite him to address the Canadian Club
would be to get out of the rut, but as an
attraction he could be classed with any of
his predecessors, ancl as his address would
be sure to proceed upon different lines, the
probability is that it would be exceptionally interesting and valuable. For these
reasons The Week ventures to suggest that
the Committee would make no mistake if
it endeavoured to secure an address from
Mr. John Drew on the occasion of his
visit to Victoria early in June.
The Montreal Star of the
News Indeed,   fifteenth   instant   contains
the following despatch:
"Vancouver, B.C.—A singular deadlock
exists with regard to the efforts of the
Vancouver Bar Association to secure the
impeachment of Justice Martin for alleged refusal to perforin judicial duties.
Every Dominion parliamentary and Senate representative of Britisli Columbia has
in turn refused to present ti petition."
It is apparently as true us ever that one
must go away from home to learn news,
assuming that the despatch is authentic, it
raises a very interesting point. The pub-
lie has been wondering why nothing more
has been heard of tlie presentment of tlie
legal fraternity with respect to thc action
of Mr. Justice Martin. The fact that the
acuteness of the crisis is passed does not
in the least degree remove the necessity
for having the matter looked into, indeed
this is as desirable in the interests of Mr.
Justice Martin as of the public service.
His attitude was prompted by a firm belief that the (.'hief Justice was exceeding
his authority, in consequence a condition
of affairs developed which became a public scandal. Xo one who knows Mr. Justice Martin will expect that delay will alter
liis convictions; 1111 important point has
been raised which can only be permanently
settled by the highest authorities. Eliminating the personal element, it cannot be
contended that any good end is served by
simply postponing a settlement, and it
will therefore be interesting to know why
every Dominion Parliamentary and Senate representative of B. C. has in turn
refused to present the petition. The statement if correct is susceptible of several
explanations, the most obvious of which
would not, however, apply to Senator Macdonald, but even if this unanimous action
was dictated it is not easy to understand
how Mr. McPherson was induced to line
up with the solid seven; he at least owed
a duty to his constituents. If the despatch
is not correct the publicity which it has
received should speedily elicit a denial.
A few weeks ago a Van-
Secession,        couver weekly contained a
lengthy editorial which in
the opinion of The Week and of many
readeres distinctly suggested even if it did
not honestly advocate secession. The suggestion took the form of a threat, that if
the Dominion Government did not take
steps to secure for British Columbia ports,
the advantages of transportation on material and supplies used on the Western
construction of the G. T. P., there were
many people in Vancouver who would
favour secession. The article pointed out.
that arrangements had already been concluded which would secure for Seattle the
bulk of this business, and if the article
did not mean to threaten secession it meant
nothing. Furthermore such advocacy
would have been in line with the disloyal
attitude assumed by the journal in question, with respect to the Asiatic Immigra*
tion question. For criticising this atti
tude, the Editor of The Week has been
called names with nobs on, ancl been made
thc subject of a personal attack. All this
is beside the question, the public cares
nothing about the Editor of The Week
or the Editor of the Vancouver weekly,
nor is it particularly interested in the
genealogical tree of either, but it is interested in knowing whether a Canadian
paper is loyal to Canadian sentiment and
to the British flag, and it would be much
more to the point if thc author of the seditious article would quote the references to
secession exactly as he first made them and
explain what he meant if he did not mean
to use a threat in the sense in which The
Week interpreted it. Further, if the
writer in question has any personal friends
they might give him a few hints as to the
proper use of the English language, and
the responsibilities of a position which
should not bc degraded by the constant resort to personal abuse in lieu of argument.
The proposal of the Laurier
Calling Government   to   single  out
A Halt. Manitoba und British Col
umbia for special treatment
in the matter of the preparation of the
electoral lists has aroused such widespread
opposition that Mr. Borden has been able
to put up a belter fight thnn at any previous time in his career. The result is
that the Premier has been compelled to
climb down. He has already expressed
his willingness lo alter the objectionable
clause so as to place the framing of the
lists in entirely non-political hands.
Whether Mr. Borden will accept this
amendment or not remains to be seen; if
he does it will be regrettable, because there
is no reason why any distinction whatever
should be made between the Provinces.
Mr. Borden has put up a splendid fight,
anil the telegram of President Barnard
congratulating him will be generally endorsed.
In a recent issue of the
Kipling and Montreal Star an editorial
Canada. appears   with   the   caption
"Kipling and Canada." It
is intended as a criticism of one of Kipling's letters dealing more particularly
with the labour question, but it branches
off to touch the subject of "navel defence"
in a most illuminating manner, although
not perhaps in the manner which thc
writer intended. Considering that the
Star is ono of the leading Canadian papers,
of established success, it may fairly be
taken to represent at any rate a large section of public opinion; ancl if this assumption is correct, it is easy to understand why it is difficult for the Navy
League ancl any kindred organization to
impress Canadian people with the necessity for contributing to naval defence. For
a travestie of the actual facts could anything be more inept than the following
extract from the editorial in question'. If
Canadians have so little self respect as to
accept the services of the Imperial Navy
on the terms outlined in the Star editorial,
then God help Canadian manhood!
"Then where else are we in danger . We
had trouble with J apan a little while ago;
but we settled it ourselves by a policy of
conciliation. Undoubtedly our delegate to
Tokio was greatly assisted by the support
of the British Minister; and that is what
Ave mean by saying that we expect Britisli
diplomacy to guard us for thc time being
against attack. Undoubtedly, too, our
case received more respect at Tokio because
it had the potential backing of the British
fleet; and this is what we mean by saying
that we expect the British navy to guard
us for the time being against attack. But
neither the diplomacy nor tlio fleet cost
Britain a penny more because it did this
odd job for us; and we would have been
very foolish to stunt our growth with thc
burden of sustaining a diplomacy and a
fleet of our own, just to meet this unfor-
seen single requirement."
The notable case in progress
Amateur this   week   before   Judge,
Reporting.        Lampman has furnished an
opportunity for a little
amateur reporting. The result has been
hardly equal to expectation in certain
quarters, but it is at least satisfactory to
note that the purpose has been served in
kecpiug out of a family journal undesirable details. Reporting is an art, for
the acquisition of whicli natural gifts
combined with long training are necessary;
it is only the trained eye which can see
the salient points of the case, nnd in nothing is amateur work more evident. It is
gratifying to observe that the presentment
of the Grand Jury hns not been without
its effect on the Victoria Times, whicli
in reporting the case this week has ever-
cised a restraint as rare ns it must have
been irksome.

By THB LOUNQER
The present week has seen a vast
improvement in the weather—we have
had one day's most acceptable rain,
to the great benefit of gardens and
lawns, constantly higher temperatures
have been reached and summer
weather has now fairly set in. The
result is seen not only in added beauties to the natural scenery, but in
the resumption of summer games and
the return of thc summer visitor, tennis and cricket are in full swing, and
the Victoria Cricket Club in particular has made a most auspicious opening. Aquatic sports are to the fore,
the Oak Bay regatta having been
pulled off with eclat. Boating and
canoeing on the Gorge are the order
of the day, and the evening, indeed
I do not think it would be possible
in any part of the world to alight
upon a place offering so many charms
and attractions as Victoria does thus
early in the summer season.
Those of us who live here neither
realize nor appreciate our blessings.
Today I picked up the papers and
read of cold weather in Toronto, of
frost over the prairies, of trees just
beginning to bud and flowers not yet
in bloom, while in Victoria the blossoms of our fruit trees have already
fallen and lilacs and horse-chestnuts
are beginning to fall. These gradations mark thc progress of the season, which has not even begun in
other parts of Canada in the same
latitude. By the twenty-fourth of May
picnicing will be in full vogue and
Victoria will havc begun to live out
of doors. This healthy and delightful condition, will in all probability
continue until the end of October, and
during thc whole of these lovely summer months there will be in addition
to natural beauty unsurpassed elsewhere, sports, games and outdoor attractions which will cater for every
leisure moment. "Le joie de vivre" is
realized here to the fullest extent
and he must be a strange mortal who
does not find his every requirement
fully met.
There are plenty of evidences that
trade depression is not to be allowed
to interfere with the enjoyment of life
in Victoria. Not only is there a large
accession to the number who takc
part in games ancl sports, but the
national game of lacrosse has taken
on a new lease of life, and splendid
grounds are being opened today. The
Oak Bay Boating Club is also a new
venture, which is certain to bc popular. As I stood out there last Saturday afternoon, discussing the scene
with two old residents, they agreed
with mc that it is only necessary to
establish some first class attraction
in order to get the people out. The
complaint has been made again and
again: "Victorians will not patronize
games," thc charge is untrue, and its
falsity is demonstrated every time a
good thing comes along. Saturday
afternoon was by no means an ideal
time, thc weather was chilly and lowering, and yet a thousand people
turned out to sec the launches race.
What pleased me most was to notice
that the well dressed happy throng included people of every class, drawn
by one common instinct which evidently appealed to all. Thc same remark applies to those who entered
their launches, and so the true spirit
of sport is exemplified.
Here is a lesson for the promoters
of games and public attractions of
every kind. Put on a good show and
no people will respond more quickly
than Victorians; on the other hand,
give them one had show and they
have terrible memories. This applies
to more than theatricals, nr even
baseball,
T referred to the advent of the summer visitor; hc was here in large
numbers on Thursday, and brought
his sweetheart along. Reports stated
that a thousand tourists came in from
Bellingham; bc that as it may, it was
a goodly sight to see the throng of
gaily dressed people lining both sides
of Government street, and they were
but the advance guard of the tens
of thousands who will come here this
summer. Those who control the administrations of our public affairs can
make no mistake in devoting all their
energies to the beautifying of the city,
when the craze for establishing smoky
factories, and smelly industries has
died out, Victoria will still remain
what nature intended it to be, the
beautiful Mecca of the West. This is
its chief asset, and the one which will
be most enduring and most profitable. Natural beauty is a tangible
asset, which has been made to yield
millions in other cities, whose ex
perience can be duplicated here. The
best work being done in Victoria today is the construction of sidewalks
and too much of it cannot be done
Boulevarding should follow fast as
means permit, and street making
should lag but little behind. All these
are beautifiers, which add to the attractiveness of the city. By so doing
they also add to the value of real
estate, and indirectly of every business
interest. Those who are responsible
for the policy which is replacing rotten plank sidewalks with concrete,
deserve credit. The policy should be
extended and vigorously developed.
Many of the unsightly objects upon
which I have exercised my pen in the
past have been removed, others will
follow, by and by shacks will be replaced by permanent buildings. 1
hear that there is at least some probability of the old Bee Hive corner
receiving attention at an early date.
I know of a much more important
project which will fill one of the most
prominent sites in the city, still occupied with the shacks which were
built on it fifty years ago, with a two
hundred thousand block, but of this
more anon. Meanwhile I hope that
these few reflections will enable some
Victorians who may not have thought
of it to realize that they are the most
highly favoured mortals, at any rate in
the Dominion.

In the Old Land.
By RAMBLER
Nice, Dec. 4, 1907.
As we leave Marseilles thc day after tomorrow 1 think I may as well
bring my epistles to a close, that is
as far as those from this side of thc
Atlantic are concerned. We left London as mentioned in my last, between three and four weeks ago and 1
havc been kicking myself ever since,
anyway until we arrived at Nice. Paris
with everything in and about it I hate.
I cannot speak the language and my
wife is too diffident (not her usual
characteristic) to attempt it. The
procedure when wc wanted to find a
place was about as follows: I would
walk up to a man and say "Vooly
vous, can you tell mc the way to Rue
St. Germain," at the same time flourishing my stick in an interrogation,
hut which the wretched individual
would construe in a threatening manner, lie would then jabber something
unintelligible, at the same time gradually beating a retreat, evidently imbued with the idea that he was having to do with an escaped maniac.
My wife would then pick up courage
and save the situation by putting into
French what I had said.
In this connection 1 had a rather
funny experience. One evening an
American Army officer and I took
in thc Moulin Rouge, a fast music
hall, where the actresses appear without tights on the stage, while on the
promenade thc demimonde, or whole
ilionde rather "buzz" one for drinks.
Well, after it was over as he wanted
lo take in a dance hall, 1 said 1
would go back to the hotel, lie gave
me the directions and 1 started off.
Hy and by it dawned upon me that
1 should be about at thc Rue dc 1'
Opera, a main thoroughfare from
which to thc hotel I knew the way.
But as it did not seem about to materialize 1 walked up to a man, who
was "mooning" on the corner and

W. BLAKEMORE..Manager and Editor
On Criticism
Criticism occupies an important
place* in llic economy of life. Only
those who havc smarted under its
lash can properly appraise its value.
Only those who have benefited by
ils exercise can appreciate its influence. The well-balanced intellect
welcomes criticism, thc weak only re-
scut it, the resentment becomes the
more pronounced if the criticism partakes of the personal.
] want to differentiate at thc outset
between mere fault-finding and criticism. Fault-finding is based upon inadequate knowledge, and generally
springs from a querulous disposition.
It is thc offspring of envy, discontent
or arrogance. Criticism springs from
conviction and the exercise of a broad
rind sane judgment upon matters presented.
About fault finding I have no more
to say except that there are persons
whose intellect is so small that when
they arc finding fault, they think they
are criticising. The critical faculty is
a noble one viewed in the highest
and best light; it is a corrective to the
errors of the fancy or reason.
There are minds so constituted that
by a course of intellectual study and
training lhey can be rendered as sensitive as a photographic plate, and upon their clear surface is reflected the
slightest error or distortion in the
presentation of truth. This detective
faculty may bc specially developed,
as indeed in these days of experts
every critic must be a specialist. This
is why for instance a publishing
house has a whole staff of reviewers,
and distributes its books according to
the special qualifications of each. So
well recognized arc reviewers of note
that it is not difficult to distinguish
their unsigned work, and by constant
practice these writers develop the critical faculty to a marvellous  degree.
This is not thc place to deal with
thc qualifications of the critic. Matthew Arnold's essays on criticism may
bc recorded as an English classic,
but observation leads mc to say that
in this as in many other branches of
intellectual work, thc natural gift is
of even greater importance than scientific training. I have known men
lacking thc latter whose unerring
judgment led them to detect the quality of literary work, and their judgments were invariably correct, but
strictly   speaking,   they   wcre   more
truly appraisers than critics.
I have often said that the best living
judge of literature is Dr. Robertson
N'icoll, and in this opinion I am sustained by many high authorities, but
when it comes to elaborate scientific
dissection, analysis and criticism of a
book, there are several other writers
who are both more exact and more
comprehensive, which goes to show
that while a man may have an instinct for good literature which will
lead him inevitably to a just conclusion in the aggregate, the matter of
elaborating his opinion is one of training and equipment.
This is equally true of painting, of
sculpture, of music, indeed of all the
arts. How many an uneducated man,
if taken lor the first time into a great
art gallery, will instinctively gravitate to the best pictures, but how few
of them could assign a reason other
than that of preference, it would require education with knowledge of a
world of detail and technique before
a man could intelligently discuss the
merits of a picture. His instinct
would enable him to say that it appeals to him, but only expert knowledge gained by experience would enable him to furnish an explanation.
From this it follows that competent
criticism is one of the most educative
forces in life, it is illuminating and
suggestive, it pictures in the right
perspective, it eliminates the useless,
the non-essential, it accentuates the
important, and above all brings into
relief the truth which is the'end of
all art.
In the new world people are impatient of criticism, only a few are
broadminded enough to concede to
the critic the spirit of fairness, or a
desire to reach thc truth. The tendency even among professional writers
is to make personal application of a
criticism, which is directed at a principle and not at a person. There arc
editors who thus, regard every attack
upon thc views which they promulgate and retaliate for thc vigorous
onslaught on their opinions by a personal attack upon their critics. This
is childish and even disheratening.
Flow can one discuss principles with
a man whose personality looms so
high on his horizon that it obscures
everything else? And yet there is a
place for the critic, if he be sincere,
lie will have to take much buffeting,
but as he looks out over the world
of controversy and intellectual strife,
his faculty will enable him to adjust
the perspective of things, and point
out the danger threatening every ill-
advised movement, or the promulgation of ill-digested theories. Time is
with him, and in the end he must
succeed because if honest he is leading men at any rate a little nearer
to the truth. Thc best ideals are developed as a result of judicious criticism, the worst are destroyed by its
influence. Its spirit may be modified
by thc age and the generation which
finds thc Athenaeum or the spectator
a sufficient corrective, would hardly
tolerate the satirical and almost vitriolic phillippics of the Saturday Review
of fifty years ago. But the spirit
which animates the conscientious critic is prominent, as it leads each successive age nearer to thc final goal.

Editor Week.
Your issue of Saturday, 16th, is
delightful. The "tone" of Thc Week,
like "the look of a gentleman," is
easier to feel than to describe. Up
right purpose, warmed by good feeling, a regard for the ignorant and
the immature, discrimination in
knowing wdiat to say and how to say
it, thc sense of responsibility, embraced by a proper sense of professional respect—these make the difference between thc newspaper exercising a benign influence, and, by
contrawise, thc newspaper exercising
a baneful influence in a community.
In the Sunday issue of the Colonist,
page 15, a pitiful little attempt is
made to respond to your criticism of
an entertainment lately given here.
It appears like an article which has
been kept in cold storage and served,
like chickens in a restaurant, on demand, deceiving no one who can tell
the difference between poultry and potatoes. The business head of the Colonist seems to see less and less commercial value in editorial writing and
correct ancl just press reports, which,
consigned to employees having no
proprietary interest, and therefore
possessing neither jurisdiction nor initiative, naturally becomes commonplace and slipshod, wanting equally in
originality and authority. Among
thinking people much goes to the
credit of fidelity. Errors of judgment can be and often are forgiven.
It is the sum total that counts; and,
in the world of newspaperdom, and
in the long run integrity and sincerity will win against fawning or patronage.
Yours very truly,
SUBSCRIBER.
"She seemed to be very particular
about those goods she bought," remarked the merchant.
"Yes," replied thc salesman, "she

"But they were a cheap imitation/'
said the merchant.
"Oh, no; I raised the price."
Damrosch.
The New York Symphony Orchestra, in size, equipment and efficiency,
ranks with the famous symphonic orchestras of the world, and has in Mr.
Walter Damrosch a conductor whose
years of splendid effort have won
him universal recognition as a leader
of rare musicianly attainments.
The aim of the Symphony Society
is to welcome to its concerts all lovers
of music, all who appreciate artistic
entertainment of the highest order,
to attain the highest perfection possible in the rendition of symphonic
music, an end to reach which no
effort is being spared. With this object in view, the members are bound
by contract to meet every day for at
least seven months in the year, devoting the mornings to rehearsals, and
the afternoons and evenings to symphony concerts.
That the coming of this splendid
organization and its brilliant leader
will awaken unusual interest and win
the hearty support that the importance of the engagement merits, is
confidently expected.
It is not often the people of Victoria have the opportunity of hearing
such an organization, and we are sure
that the heartiest support will be
given to the managers of the Victoria Theatre in their effort to provide their patrons with the best music
that comes to the West.
The plan for the concert, which will
be held on Monday, June the first, is
now open at the Theatre Box Office.
The guarantee for the Symphony Orchestra is a large one, so it behooves
us all to work for its success.

Comment.
The   cricket   season   was   inaugur-
|d last Saturday, both of the local
lbs  being  engaged.    The  Victoria
lb   celebrated  the  opening  of  the
Ison by winning a brilliant victory
Im   New   Westminster,   while   the
Lions  met defeat'at the hands of
|ir old rivals the Garrison.    While
Victoria  club  did  not  have  the
longest   eleven  on  the  field,   their
•formance  leads  us  to  think  that
|s season will prove a banner one
the local club and if the club does
It   establish   a   record  this   year   I
ll be away off in my guess.   From
|< members who now belong to the
1-al  club an eleven can be secured
lich   will,  under   ordinary   circum-
jnce    make    a    brilliant    showing
Itinst any club that can be secured
lgo against them, and with any luck
Juki go through tbe season without
efeat.    The  Albions,  despite  the

be  strong and will  be  able  to
|d their own against the best.    It
unfortunate   for  them  that   the
luigest eleven could not be placed
lthe field last Saturday, but several
lhe strongest players were engaged
lhe erection of the pavilion at Bea-
Hill.   This   is   a   very   laudable
|ect but if they expect to win games
* must place their strongest eleven
he field.
this afternoon will witness the lo-
baseball    team    in    action,  and
ging from the practices that havc
held, a better showing will  be
:le  than was    done    in    the  first
Itch.   Since the first game the team
been  strengthened  considerably.
Ihet, who is known as one of the
best players ever produced in this
city, will hold down thc initial bag,
while Schwengers, another favorite,
will cover a second. This will give
a good infield and one that is strong
at bat. Surplice will do thc twirling
and if he pitches in the same manner
as he has been doing in practice will
give a good account of himself. I am
pleased to see that the club has undertaken to give Bob Peden the regular pitcher for the J.B.A.A. a trial
and if I am not mistaken he will
make good. I have always contended that Peden, with support, would
make a pitcher, and I am anxious to
see him in action against good nine.
On Monday and Tuesday the locals
will be up against a strong combination in the University of William-
ette. Peden will pitch Monday and
Surplice Tuesday, and I expect that
at least one game will come to the
locals. This afternoon the home team
will be pitted against the University
of Washington, a good team, but I
think the locals will take their measure. Since the last match I have
heard several complaints against the
locals, but I hope that a good crowd
will witness the match this afternoon.
'! he management has gone to considerable expense to put a team in thc
field and although the first match
was lost the club is deserving of the
support of all lovers of good clean
sport.
mittce to place a senior team in the
Held could result in nothing else than
failure. It is all very well for the
men to say they will not play senior,
but when their time conies to enter
the senior ranks it is their duty to do
so and unless they scc their way clear
to do this it would be better if they
ceased to play the game. Seniors
can only be secured by supporting
the younger players and if the
younger players refuse to support a
senior team it is time to quit. No
one team in this city has any right to
say how many players that club
should have on the senior team, and
the sooner everybody realizes this the
better it will be for lacrosse. There
are many old players in this city who
know more about lacrosse than many
people think and their advice should
be accepted, but for some reason some
of the younger players havc endeavored to buck over the traces. Tbis
is not good policy ancl the sooner it
is stopped the better it will be for
all concerned.
well known in this city and will prove
a favorite when he enters thc ring,
lioth of these contests should prove
interesting and should assist materially in the celebration of Victoria
Day. On Monday evening the Provincial Athletic Club has arranged
lor a contest in the Assembly Room
between Kid Foley of Nanaimo and
Merryfield of Victoria. This should
also prove interesting and should attract a good crowd. Good preliminaries will be provided for every
evening and a splendid evening's sport
should result.
IN THE OLD LAND
(Continued from Page Three)
The new recreation park at the corner of Cook and Pembroke streets
will be opened to the public this afternoon when the local intermediates
will try conclusions with thc Fairview
team. This should draw a crowd
as a good game should result. I havc
heard with pleasure that the differences between the three local lacrosse
clubs havc been settled and I am
pleased to know that this is a fact
as otherwise the efforts of the com-
Although not on thc official programme of thc celebration there will
bc some attractions that will appeal
to many of our citizens. I refer to
the boxing tournament that has been
arranged to be held. The Victoria
West Athletic Association in their
efforts have arranged for two of the
best contests that have ever taken
place in this city. The lirst will be
held in the Victoria Theatre this evening when Billy Lauder, champion
lightweight of Canada, ancl this title
has been won only by the hardest
kind of lighting, will meet Kid
Howell. These two fighters have already met and the decision went to
Lauder on a foul, and a second encounter should prove interesting. For
Tuesday evening Geo. Paris of Vancouver and McLaglan of Tacoma will
mix   things.    The   former   is   fairly
and interview him. N'o, no, Monsieur,
must send a written application
through the mail. Had to go back-
to the Hotel, write and send it. Said
was very much interested in Archaeology, etc., etc.; got back a reply, the
acme of politeness, giving me thc
asked permission.
It is strange, but a fact that the
Government in its light with the
Church receives its greatest support
from the country districts and the
masses, and that the churches in
Paris will not accommodate the
worshippers who are almost exclusively composed of the middle, well lo do
classes, while ill urban France lhe
churches are deserted. This state of
affairs is entirely the opposite lo that
which existed during the time of the
decay of Paganism in the Roman
Empire, It was the educated classes
who broke away from the Roman
mythology. The lower classes remained faithful to such an extent and
for so long that thc Christian church
was obliged to accept a number of
the greatest deities ancl give them
new names, as well as to adopt their
festivals and those of the former as
were of lesser degree, the church did
not  deny  their  existence  but  called
them demons or devils.
We were very sorry wc stayed as
long as we did in Paris, instead of
coining down here earlier. Nice is
all right. The weather is beautiful,
while in Paris it was wretched, and
a lot of English is spoken, in nearly
all the stores and most of the hotels.
Moreover, they cater to so many
Britishers that one gets decent meals.
Nice is a beautiful place, that is the
modern portion. lt is really two
towns, Ancient and Modern—the latter puts one in mind of Canton, as
lar as its streets are concerned, none
wider than about 12 feel, but it lacks
the charming aroma of the Chinese
City. They raise immense quantities
of flowers of all descriptions and hold
daily markets. Really a wonderful
sight.
We took in Monte Carlo of course..
It is about fifteen miles distant and
reached by inter-urban car line built
along the littoral, in many places cut
out of solid rock for a mile or so at
a time. The scenery is simply grand,
and we were not disappointed at
Monte Carlo. It is well worth a visit,
We took a liver at the tables, paid
all expenses and were besides about
7_\ francs to the good. It is wonderful
the amount of money that is staked.
I confined myself to odd or even,
started big, 20 francs at a whack, lost
80 francs and then played cautious,
got it all back and more.
Was very much astonished at the
appearance of the French soldiers
and policemen, especially the former,
saw hundreds of them and they have
a most Utisoldierly appearance. The
same tiling struck lhe U. S. Army
officer. They in no way can compare
to "Thomas Atkins," at least for
looks, ami as regards the "bobbies"
they are not in the same class with
the Londoner.

On  Monday night at the Victoria good   enough   for   the   professional
Theatre Miss Elsie Ferguson presented Hall Caine's popular play, The
Bondman, supported by Mr. Wilton
Lackaye and a good all round Company. I am aware that the advance
notices featured Mr. Lackaye as the
star, but that is where they made a
mistake; in every department Miss
Ferguson was easily the top-liner, and
carried off the honours. Rarely has
a more satisfactory actress been seen
in Victoria; she was beautiful, ladylike, had a perfect voice, correct intonation and a restrained manner. The
part is not an easy one to play without alienating the sympathy of the
audience, but Miss Ferguson succeeded, and unless I am entirely mistaken
in my judgment, she will be heard
of again with more important roles.
The next most satisfactory performer
was that of Mr. Ethelbert Hales, who
played the part of Father Ferrati, an
unfrocked priest, with a fidelity to
detail and a passion which strongly
recalled the work of Mr. Beerbohm
Tree, in fact I should not be surprised to know that he had taken Mr.
Tree for his model. Mr. Lackaye
comes next and while he did fairly
well one could never get away from
the impression that hc was not suited
by his part. His personal appearance is much against him in juvenile
roles, and made his love-making a
burlesque. He is stagey and artificial
to a degree, and altogether suggested
stage. She also possesses the advantage of having a full round voice
pleasant to listen to. Miss Vivian
Bolton played Nellie Richmond in
very nice style, and with a self-possession rare with young amateur actresses. Miss Ethel Brown was excellent as the maid, entering thoroughly
into the spirit of the part, and Miss
Netta Heyland looked very dainty as
Mellie Huntingdon, the obliging
friend. Among the men undoubtedly
the palm belongs to Mr. Jephson, who
is an excellent actor with a fine, distinct voice, and a natural boldness
which is simply irresistible. He was
the life and soul of the play, and
suggested possibilities of success in
an important comedy role. Mr. Cecil'
Berkeley was very satisfactory as the
young husband, his work was intelligent and consistent throughout. Mr.
J. Heyland gave a very amusing
sketch of the dude, as Ferdinand
Lighthead, and his scenes with .Miss
Cornelia were thoroughly enjoyed by
the audience. Mr. Geo. McCurdy did
fairly well in a rather thankless part,
but he is evidently inexperienced and
will no doubt do better next time. On
the whole the performance was thoroughly enjoyable and unlike many
amateur shows is well worth repeating. I have one suggestion to make;
it is that on the next occasion the
committee should arrange for the presentation of a bouquet to each of the

of   the   Company  were   satisfactory,
indeed it was an excellent all round
aggregation, and it was a treat once
more to hear English spoken as it
should be, and not as it too often is
by the screeching American companies who mostly travel in the West.
The scenery and staging were excellent, and it is a marvel how Mr.
North managed to handle the great
scene in the sulphur mine on so small
a scale.
The play is a good one, good and
strong in every sense, a shade on the
grey side, and decidedly flavoured
with the melo-dramatic, but this is
only to say that it is characteristic
of Mr. Hall Caine. It is strong, it
grips, and it has a fine moral. On
the whole 1 doubt if any more satisfactory production has been seen in
Victoria this season.

that was rather conspicuous if not
invidious.
There is said to be no comedian on
the American stage today, that is
more popular with theatregoers than
is Francis Wilson, who, although he
has deserted the buffoonery of musical comedy and comic opera for more,
legitimate plays still holds the first
place in the hearts of theatregoers.
For the first time in several seasons,
this distinguished comedian is making an extended western trip,—and
he has not been seen in this section
of the country in anything but musical entertainment. This season, Mr.
Wilson is presenting a deliciously
funny farcical play called "When
Knights Were Bold," which Charles
Frohman  secured  for    him    and in

et Live.
A letter will be found in
the correspondence columns
of this issue signed " Subscriber."   It is from the pen
a prominent and influential citizen of
ictoria, a man closely in touch with many
taportant interests aiid well equipped for
riting upon any matter affecting the wel-
re of the City. Whilst not agreeing with
jl that he says, or at any rate not going
jiite as far as he goes, The Week entases his main contention which is that
ere is a danger in Victoria of too much
and-motherly legislation, too much coding, too much prescribing of "thou shalt'
d "thou shalt not" for the plain, ordin-
citizen, who is not a law breaker and
10 desires to do justly and live rightly,
hen it comes down to recognizing and
jaling with breaches of the law and social
Is there is no difference of opinion, the
imunity is a unit;   the law must be
lyed, it must be enforced, the social
ls must be suppressed.   But when it
nes to regulating the lives of the people
building folds, erecting fences and seek-
l to drive them like a flock of sheep,
[sre are at least some who resent the inference, and the most unfortunate as-
t of the case is that the result of so
ch injudicious domineering is to weaken
[1 hands of legitimate reformers and to
p to perpetuate conditions which all
ire to terminate.   Xo one questions the
tives which animate the various Re-
jm organizations of this City, but here
lsewhere zeal has outrun discretion, and
element which calls itself by the name
lienating public sympathy by the fre-
ncy and unreasonableness of its attacks
m interests which are legitimate and
ch are entitled to fair treatment. Fur-
i the Reformers are alienating the sup-
t of hundreds of people who object to
e their line of conduct mapped out as
.hey were children, and to be told that
must not do this and they must not
that because the Reform League or the
[izens League or the Ministerial Asso-
ion or some other Association has de-
d that it is wrong.   All men do not
lik alike, beyond absolute compliance
|h the law considerable latitude must be
wed, especially in a new country. The
tantly recurring attacks upon all en-
in the Licensed Victuallers' business
as unfair as they are ill-advised.    This
ter can and should be dealt with on
entirely different basis.    Instead of
lassing the trade until it has no security
no certainty even for a few months
id, let the community, if it be bent
drastic restriction, have the courage
its convictions and take the bull by
horns.   Everyone knows that there are
e times as many licenses in Victoria
re necessary.   Why not cut out two-
ds of them and thus eliminate all the
class dives, saloons, and a few of tlie
■e than questionable hotels.   The others
do all the legitimate business whicli
:ommunity requires and no one would
ry.    Tho Licensed Victuallers are a
biding section of the community, they
no   sympathy   with   ill-conducted
es, nor is,it*to tlieir interest that they
ld be continued.    The best policy is
[ut down tlie licenses to the require-
s of the community, and then insist
trict enforcement of tlie law.    AVitli
■ence to the recreations of the people,
the drastic proposals of Alderman
son, some of which wcre very pro-
eliminated, too much credit cannot
m to Aldermen Pauline and Hendcr-
:or their vigorous stand against what
d have been to say the least of it dis-
st and a gross breach of faith.    It
some courage, in face of the influ-
EDITORIAL
ences at work, to combat Alderman Glea-
son's proposals, but these men had that
courage and by their action voiced the
opinion of a very considerable section of
the community, which is getting more than
a little bit tired of the so-called Reform
policy. If Aid. Gleason and his supporters are in earnest, and are prepared to
undertake legislative reform work, let them
turn their attention to the enforcement
of existing laws, especially in certain
quarters of the town, and when that has
been properly attended to it will be quite
time enough to consider new legislation.
The Canadian Club has
Suggestion to entertained several visit-
Canadian Club, ors, more or less distinguished, but lately the
supply is hardly equal to the demand, and
tliere are long intervals during which we
glean nothing of the opinions of those
whose mission it is to tell us what we
ought to think about ourselves. In a few
weeks Victoria will be honoured by a visit
from a gentleman who is in every respect
well equipped to addr-es the Canadian
Club. He has addressed Institutes in
London and New York, and has proved
himself to be a brilliant and attractive
speaker. He is a Canadian born and has
attained the highest possible position in
his chosen profession, in fact in two Continents his name is a household word. To
invite him to address the Canadian Club
would be to get out of the rut, but as an
attraction he could be classed with any of
his predecessors, and as his address would
be sure to proceed upon different lines, the
probability is that it would be exceptionally interesting and valuable. For these
reasons The Week ventures to suggest that
the Committee would make no mistake if
it endeavoured to secure an address from
Mr. John Drew on the occasion of his
visit to Victoria early in June.
The Montreal Star of the
News Indeed, fifteenth instant contains
the following despatch:
"Vancouver, B.C.—A singular deadlock
exists with regard to the efforts of the
Vancouver Bar Association to secure the
impeachment of Justice Martin for alleged refusal to perform judicial duties.
Every Dominion parliamentary and Senate representative of Britisli Columbia has
in turn refused to present a petition."
It is apparently as true as ever that one
must go away from homo to learn news,
assuming tliat the despatch is authentic, it
raises a very interesting point. The public has been wondering why nothing more
has been heard of the presentment of the
legal fraternity with respect to the action
of Mr. Justice Martin. The fact that the
acuteness of the crisis is passed does not
in the least degree remove the necessity
for having the matter looked into, indeed
this is as desirable in the interests of Mr.
Justice Martin as of the public service.
His attitude was prompted by a firm belief that the Chief Justice was exceeding
his authority, in consequence a condition
of affairs developed whic! became a public scandal. Xo one who knows Mr. Justice Martin will expect that delay will alter
his convictions; an important point has
been raised which can only bc permanently
settled by thc highest authorities. Eliminating the personal element, it cannot D8
contended that any good end is served by
simply postponing a settlement, and it
will therefore be interesting to know why
every Dominion Parliamentary and Senate representative of B. C. has in turn
refused to present the petition. The statement if correct is susceptible of several
explanations, the most obvious of which
would not, however, apply to Senator Macdonald, but even if this unanimous action
was dictated it is not easy to understand
how Mr. McPherson was induced to line
up with the solid seven; he at least owed
a duty to his constituents. If the despatch
is not correct the publicity which it has
received should speedily elicit a denial.
A few weeks ago a Van-
Secession,        couver weekly contained a
lengthy editorial which in
the opinion of The Week and of many
readeres distinctly suggested even if it did
not honestly advocate secession. The suggestion took the form of a threat, that if
the Dominion Government did not take
steps to secure for British Columbia ports,
the advantages of transportation on material and supplies used on the Western
construction of the G. T. P., there were
many people in Vancouver who would
favour secession. The article pointed out
that arrangements had already been concluded which would secure for Seattle the
bulk of this business, and if the article
did not mean to threaten secession it meant
nothing. Furthermore such advocacy
would have been in line with the disloyal
attitude assumed by the journal in question, with respect to the Asiatic Immigration question. For criticising this atti
tude, the Editor of The Week has been
called names with nobs on, and been made
the subject of a personal attack. All this
is beside the question, the public cares
nothing about the Editor of The Week
or the Editor of the Vancouver weekly,
nor is it particularly interested in the
genealogical tree of either, but it is interested in knowing whether a Canadian
paper is loyal to Canadian sentiment and
to the British flag, and it would be much
more to the point if the author of the seditious article would quote the references to
secession exactly as he first made them and
explain what he meant if he did not mean
to use a threat in the sense in which The
AVeek interpreted it. Further, if the
writer in question has any personal friends
they might give him a few hints as to the
proper use of the English language, and
the responsibilities of a position which
should not be degraded by the constant resort to personal abuse in lieu of argument.
In a recent issue of the
Kipling and Montreal Star an editorial
Canada. appears  with  the  caption
"Kipling and Canada." It
is intended as a criticism of one of Kipling's letters dealing more particularly
with the labour question, but it branches
off to touch the subject of "navel defence"
in a most illuminating manner, although
not perhaps in the manner which tho
writer intended. Considering that the
Star is one of the leading Canadian papers,
of established success, it may fairly be
taken to represent at any rate a large section of public opinion; and if this assumption is correct, it is easy to understand why it is difficult for the Navy
League and any kindred organization to
impress Canadian people with the necessity for contributing to naval defence. For
a travestie of the actual facts could anything be more inept than the following
extract from the editorial in question ? If
Canadians have so little self respect as to
accept the services of the Imperial Navy
on the terms outlined in the Star editorial,
then God help Canadian manhood!
"Then where else are we in danger ? We
had trouble with Japan a little while ago;
but we settled it ourselves by a policy of
conciliation. Undoubtedly our delegate to
Tokio was greatly assisted by the support
of the British Minister; and that is what
we mean by saying that we expect British
diplomacy to guard us for the time being
against attack. Undoubtedly, too, our
case received more respect at Tokio because
it had the potential backing of the British
fleet; and this is what we mean by saying
that we expect the British navy to guard
us for the time being against attack. But
neither the diplomacy nor the fleet cost
Britain a penny more because it did this
odd job for us; and we would have been
very foolish to stunt our growth with the
burden of sustaining a diplomacy and a
fleet of our own, just to meet this unfor-
seen single requirement."
Amateur
Reporting.
Calling
A Halt.
The proposal of the Laurier
Government to single out
Manitoba and British Columbia for special treatment
iu the matter of the preparation of the
electoral lists has aroused such widespread
opposition that Mr. Borden has been able
to put up a better fight than at any previous time iu his career. The result is
that the Premier has been compelled to
climb down, lie has already expressed
his willingness to alter the objectionable
clause so ns to place the framing of the
lists in entirely non-political hands.
Whether Mr. Borden will accept this
amendment or not remains to be seen; if
he does it will be regrettable, because there
is no reason why any distinction whatever
should be made between the Provinces.
Mr. Borden has put up a splendid fight,
and the telegram of President Barnard
congratulating him will be generally endorsed.
The notable case in progress
this week before Judge
Lampman has furnished an
opportunity for a little^
amateur reporting. The result has been
hardly equal to expectation in certain
quarters, but it is at least satisfactory to
note that the purpose has been served in
keeping out of a family journal undesirable details. Reporting is an art, for
the acquisition of which natural gifts
combined with long training are necessary;
it is only the trained eye which can see
the salient points of the case, and in nothing is amateur work more evident. It is
gratifying to observe that the presentment
of the Grand Jury has not been without
its effect on the Victoria Times, which
in reporting thc case this week has cver-
cised a restraint as rare as it must have
been irksome.
The Vietoria Times has

not, even specious. If the Editor read The
Week as religiously as he reads the Bible,
he would have gathered some time ago
that the portfolio would go to a Kootenay
member, who by common consent is specially fitted to administer the new Department. Further the Times would havc
im difficulty in ascertaining if it had gone
the right way about it that the visit of

The present week has seen a vast
improvement in the weather—we have
had one day's most acceptable rain,
to the great benefit of gardens and
lawns, constantly higher temperatures
have been reached and summer
weather has now fairly set in. The
result is seen not only in added beauties to the natural scenery, but in
the resumption of summer games and
the return of the summer visitor, tennis and cricket are in full swing, and
the Victoria Cricket Club in particular has made a most auspicious opening. Aquatic sports are to the fore,
the Oak Bay regatta having been
pulled off with eclat. Boating and
canoeing on the Gorge are the order
of the day, and the evening, indeed
I do not think it would be possible
in any part of the world to alight
upon a place offering so many charms
and attractions as Victoria does thus
early in the summer season.
Those of us who live here neither
realize nor appreciate our blessings.
Today I picked up the papers and
read of cold weather in Toronto, of
frost over the prairies, of trees just
beginning to bud and flowers not yet
in bloom, while in Victoria the blossoms of our fruit trees have already
fallen and liljcs and horse-chestnuts
are beginning to fall. These gradations mark the progress of the season, which has not even begun in
other parts of Canada in the same
latitude. By the twenty-fourth of May
picnicing will be in full vogue ancl
Victoria will have begun to live out
of doors. This healthy and delightful condition will in all probability
continue until the end of October, and
during the whole of these lovely summer months there will be in addition
to natural beauty unsurpassed elsewhere, sports, games and outdoor attractions which will cater for every
leisure moment. "Le joie de vivre" is
realized here to the fullest extent
and he must be a strange mortal who
does not find his every requirement
fully met.
There arc plenty of evidences that
trade depression is not to be allowed
to interfere with the enjoyment of life
in Victoria. Not only is there a large
accession to the number who take
part in games and sports, but the
national game of lacrosse has taken
on a new lease of life, and splendid
grounds arc being opened today. The
Oak Bay Boating Club is also a new
venture, which is certain to be popular. As I stood out there last Saturday afternoon, discussing the scene
with two old residents, they agreed
with me that it is only necessary to
establish some first class attraction
in order to get the people out. The
complaint has been made again and
again: "Victorians will not patronize
games," the charge is untrue, and its
falsity is demonstrated every time a
good thing conies along. Saturday
afternoon was by no means an ideal
time, thc weather was chilly and lowering, and yet a thousand people
turned out to see the launches race.
What pleased me most was to notice
that the well dressed happy throng included people of every class, drawn
by one common instinct which evidently appealed to all. The same remark applies to those who entered
their launches, and so the true spirit
of sport is exemplified.
Here is a lesson for the promoters
of games and public attractions of
every kind. Put on a good show and
no people will respond more quickly
than Victorians; on the other hand,
give them one bad show aud they
have terrible memories. This applies
to more thnn theatricals, or even
baseball.
I referred to thc advent of the summer visitor; he was here in large
numbers on Thursday, and brought
his sweetheart along. Reports stated
that a thousand tourists came in from
Bellingham; be that as it may, it was
a goodly sight to see the throng of
gaily dressed people lining both sides
of Government street, and they were
but the advance guard of the tens
of thousands who will come here this
summer. Those who control the administrations of our public affairs can
make no mistake in devoting all their
energies to the beautifying of the city,
when the craze for establishing smoky
factories, and smelly industries has
died out, Victoria will still remain
what nature intended it to be, the
beautiful Mecca of the West. This is
its chief asset, and the one which will
be most enduring and most profitable. Natural beauty is a tangible
asset, which has been made to yield
millions in other cities, whose experience can be duplicated here. The
best work being done in Victoria today is the construction of sidewalks,
and too much of it cannot be done.
Boulevarding should follow fast as
means permit, and street making
should lag but little behind. Alt these
are beautifiers, which add to the attractiveness of the city. By so doing
they also add to the value of real
estate, and indirectly of every business
interest. Those who are responsible
for the policy which is replacing rotten, plank sidewalks with concrete,
deserve credit. The policy should be
extended and vigorously developed.
Many of the unsightly objects upon
which I have exercised my pen in the
past have been removed, others will
follow, by and by shacks will be replaced by permanent buildings. 1
hear that there is at least some probability of the old Bee Hive corner
receiving attention at an early date.
I know of a much more important
project which will fill one of the most
prominent sites in the city, still occupied with the shacks which were
built on it fifty years ago, with a two
hundred thousand block, but of this
more anon. Meanwhile I hope that
these few reflections will enable some
Victorians who may not have thought
of it to realize that they are the most
highly favoured mortals, at any rate in
the Dominion.

In the Old Land.
By RAMBLER
Nice, Dec. 4, 1907.
As wc leave Marseilles the day after tomorrow I think I may as well
bring my epistles to a close, that is
as far as those from this side of the
Atlantic are concerned. We left London as mentioned in my last, between three and four weeks ago and I
have been kicking myself ever since,
anyway until we arrived at Nice. Paris
with everything in and about it I hate.
I cannot speak the language and my
wife is too diffident (not her usual
characteristic) to attempt it. The
procedure when we wanted to find a
place was about as follows: I would
walk up to a man and say "Vooly
vous, can you tell me the way to Rue
St. Germain," at the same time flourishing my stick in an interrogation,
but which the wretched individual
would construe in a threatening manner. He would then jabber something
unintelligible, at the same time gradually beating a retreat, evidently imbued with the idea that he was having to do with an escaped maniac.
My wife would then pick up courage
and save the situation by putting into
French what I had said.
In this connection I had a rather
funny experience. One evening an
American Army officer and I took
in the Moulin Rouge, a fast music
hall, where the actresses appear without tights on the stage, while on the
promenade the demimonde, or whole
mondc rather "buzz" one fo: drinks.
Well, after it was over as he wanted
to take in a dance hall, I said I
would go hack to thc hotel. He gave
me the directions and I started off.
By and by it dawned upon me that
I should be about at the Rue de 1'
Opera, a main thoroughfare from
which to the hotel I knew the way.
But as it did not seem about to materialize I walked up to a man, who
was "mooning" on the corner and

France is only a Republic in name,
it is not to bc compared to England

Legalite and Fraternity" are painted

He took mc to a man with one gold
band on his sleeve. They jabbered

Comment.
|he   cricket   season   was   inaugur-
last Saturday, both of the local
fs  being  engaged.    The Victoria
celebrated  the  opening  of  the
Jon by winning a brilliant victory
New   Westminster,   while   thc
lions met defeat at the hands of
Ir old rivals the Garrison.   While
J Victoria  club  did not have  the
Ingest  eleven  on the field,  their
iormance  leads us  to think  that
season will prove a banner one
|the local club and if the club does
establish   a   record  this  year   I
be away off in my guess.   From
J members who now belong to the
|tl club an eleven cart be secured
will,   under   ordinary  circum-
Ice    make    a    brilliant    showing
inst any club that can be secured
lo against them, and with any luck
[ild go through the season without
efeat.    The  Albions,  despite the
showing of last Saturday will
be strong and will be able to
their own against the best.   It
unfortunate  for  them  that  the
|igest eleven could not be placed
lie field last Saturday, but several
le strongest players were engaged
|c erection of the pavilion at Bea-
Hill.   This   is   a   very  laudable
tt but if they expect to win games
J must place their strongest eleven
Ic field.
lis afternoon will witness the 1o-
Ibaseball team in action, and
|ing from the practices that have
held, a better showing will be
le than was done in the first
Lh. Since the first game the team
I been strengthened considerably,
let, who is known as one of the
best players ever produced in this
city, will hold down the initial bag,
while Schwengers, another favorite,
will cover a second. This will give
a good infield and one that is strong
at bat. Surplice will do the twirling
and if he pitches in the same manner
as he has been doing in practice will
give a good account of himself. I am
pleased to see that the club has undertaken to give Bob Peden the regular pitcher for the J.B.A.A. a trial
and if I am not mistaken he will
make good. I have always contended that Peden, with support, would
make a pitcher, and I am anxious to
see him in action against good nine.
On Monday and Tuesday the locals
will be up against a strong combination in the University of William-
ette. Peden will pitch Monday and
Surplice Tuesday, and I expect that
at least one game will come to the
locals. This afternoon the home team
will be pitted against the University
of Washington, a good team, but I
think the locals will take their measure. Since the last match I have
heard several complaints against thc
locals, but I hope that a good crowd
will witness the match this afternoon,
'i he management has gone to considerable expense to put a team in the
field and although the first match
was lost the club is deserving of tbe
support of all lovers of good clean
sport.
mittee to place a senior team in the
field could result in nothing else than
failure. It is all very well for the
men to say they will not play senior,
but when their time comes to enter
the senior ranks it is their duty to do
so and unless they see their way clear
to do' this it would be better if they
ceased to play the game. Seniors
can only be secured by supporting
the younger players and if the
younger players refuse to support a
senior team it is time to quit. No
one team in this city has any right to
say how many players that club
should have on the senior team, and
the sooner everybody realizes this the
better it will be for lacrosse. There
are many old players in this city who
know more about lacrosse than many
people think and their advice should
be accepted, but for some reason some
of the younger players have endeavored to buck over the traces. This
is not good policy and the sooner it
is stopped the better it will be for
all concerned.
well known in this city and will prove
a favorite when he enters the ring.
Both of these contests should prove
interesting and should assist materially in the celebration of Victoria
Day. On Monday evening the Provincial Athletic Club has arranged
for a contest in the Assembly Room
between Kid Foley of Nanaimo and
Merryfield of Victoria. This should
also prove interesting and should attract a good crowd. Good preliminaries will be provided for every
evening and a splendid evening's sport
should result.
IN THE OLD LAND
(Continued from Page Three)
Thc new recreation park at the corner of Cook and Pembroke streets
will be opened to the public this afternoon when thc local intermediates
will try conclusions with the Fairview
team. This should draw a crowd
as a good game should result. I have
heard with pleasure that the differences between the three local lacrosse
clubs have been settled and I am
pleased to know that this is a fact*
as otherwise the efforts of the com-
Although not on the official programme of the celebration there will
be some attractions that will appeal
to many of our citizens. I refer to
the boxing tournament that has been
arranged to be held. Thc Victoria
West Athletic Association in their
efforts have arranged for two of the
best contests that have ever taken
place in this city. The first will be
held in the Victoria Theatre this evening when Billy Lauder, champion
lightweight of Canada, and this title
has been won only by the hardest
kind of fighting, will meet Kid
Howell. These two fighters havc already met and thc decision went to
Lauder on a foul, and a second encounter should prove interesting. For
Tuesday evening Geo. Paris of Vancouver and McLaglan of Tacoma will
mix   things.    Thc   former   is   fairly
ancl interview him. No, no, Monsieur,
must send a written application
through the mail. Had to go back
to thc Hotel, write and send it. Said
was very much interested in Archaeology, etc., etc.; got back a reply, thc
acme of politeness, giving me the
asked permission.
It is strange, but a fact that the
Government in its fight with thc
Church receives its greatest support
from the country districts ancl the
masses, and that the churches in
Paris will not accommodate the
worshippers who arc almost exclusively composed of the middle, well to do
classes, while in urban France the
churches are deserted. This state of
affairs is entirely the opposite to that
which existed during the time of thc
decay of Paganism in the Roman
Empire. It was the educated classes
who broke away from the Roman
mythology. The lower classes remained faithful to such an extent and
for so long that the Christian church
was obliged to accept a number of
the greatest deities and give them
new names, as well as to adopt their
festivals and those of the former as
wcre of lesser degree, the church did
not deny  their  existence but  called
them demons or devils.
We were very sorry we stayed as
long as we did in Paris, instead of
coming down here earlier. Nice is
all right. Thc weather is beautiful,
while in Paris it was wretched, and
a lot of English is spoken, in nearly
all the stores and most of the hotels.
Moreover, they cater to so many
Britishers that one gets decent meals.
Nice is a beautiful place, that is the
modern portion. It is really two
towns, Ancient and Modern—the latter puts one in mind of Canton, as
far as its streets are concerned, none
wider than about 12 feet, but it lacks
the charming aroma of the Chinese
City. They raise immense quantities
of Mowers of all descriptions and hold
daily markets. Really a wonderful
sight.
We took in Monte Carlo of course..
It is about fifteen miles distant and
reached by inter-urban car line built
along the littoral, in many places cut
out of solid rock for a mile or so at
a time. Thc scenery is simply grand,
and we were not disappointed at
Monte Carlo. It is well worth a visit.
We took a flyer at the tables, paid
all expenses and were besides about
75 francs to the good. It is wonderful
the amount of money that is staked.
1 confined myself to odd or even,
started big, 20 francs at a whack, lost
80 francs and then played cautious,
got it all back and more.
Was very much astonished at the
appearance of the French soldiers
and policemen, especially the former,
saw hundreds of them and they have
a most unsoldierly appearance. The
same thing struck the U. S. Army
officer. They in no way can compare
to "Thomas Atkins," at least for
looks, ancl as regards the "bobbies"
they arc not in the same class with
the Londoner.

I   The Drama. J
The Bondman.
On Monday night at the Victoria
Theatre Miss Elsie Ferguson present
ed Hall Caine's popular play, The
Bondman, supported by Mr. Wilton
Lackaye and a good all round Company. I am aware that the advance
notices featured Mr. Lackaye as the
star, but that is where they made a
mistake; in every department Miss
Ferguson was easily the top-liner, and
carried off the honours. Rarely has
a more satisfactory actress been seen
in Victoria; she was beautiful, ladylike, had a perfect voice, correct intonation and a restrained manner. The
part is not an easy one to play without alienating the sympathy of the
audience, but Miss Ferguson succeeded, and unless I am entirely mistaken
in my judgment, she will be heard
of again with more important roles.
The next most satisfactory performer
was that of Mr. Ethelbert Hales, who
played the part of Father Ferrati, an
unfrocked priest, with a fidelity to
detail and a passion which strongly
recalled the work of Mr. Beerbohm
Tree, in fact I should not be surprised to know that he had taken Mr.
Tree for his model. Mr. Lackaye
comes next and while he did fairly
well one could never get away from
the impression that he was not suited
by his part. His personal appearance is much against him in juvenile
roles, and made his love-making a
burlesque. He is stagey and artificial
to a degree, and altogether suggested
the impossibility of achieving the purpose of the play. The other members
of the Company were satisfactory,
indeed it was an excellent all round
aggregation, and it was a treat once
more to hear English spoken as it
should be, and not as it too often is
by the screeching American companies who mostly travel in the West.
The scenery and staging were excellent, and it is a marvel how Mr.
North managed to handle the great
scene in the sulphur mine on so small
a scale.
The play is a good one, good and
strong in every sense, a shade on thc
grey side, and decidedly flavoured
with the melo-dramatic, but this is
only to. say that it is characteristic
of Mr. Hall Caine. It is strong, it
grips, and it has a fine moral. On
the whole I doubt if any more satisfactory production has been seen in
Victoria this season.
thoroughly gratified audience. Probably no amateur aggregation seen in
Victoria for years has presented a
more even standard of excellence
There were no ragged edges and no
disappointments. Of the ladies Miss
Suzette Blackwood carried off the
honors, her make-up and manner as
Cornelia Skinner, an old maid, being
good enough for the professional
stage. She also possesses the advantage of having a full round voice
pleasant to listen to. Miss Vivian
Bolton played Nellie Richmond in
very nice style, and with a self-possession rare with young amateur actresses. Miss Ethel Brown was excellent as the maid, entering thoroughly
into the spirit of the part, and Miss
Netta Heyland looked very dainty as
Mellie Huntingdon, the obliging
friend. Among the men undoubtedly
the palm belongs to Mr. Jephson, who
is an excellent actor with a fine distinct voice, and a natural boldness
which is simply irresistible. He was
the life and soul of the play, and
suggested possibilities of success in
an important comedy role. Mr. Cecil
Berkeley was very satisfactory as the
young husband, his work was intelligent and consistent throughout. Mr.
J. Heyland gave a very amusing
sketch of the dude, as Ferdinand
Lighthead, and his scenes with Miss
Cornelia were thoroughly enjoyed by
the audience. Mr. Geo. McCirdy did
fairly well in a rather thankless part,
but he is evidently inexperienced and
will no doubt do better next time. On
the whole the performance was thoroughly enjoyable and unlike many
amateur shows is well worth repeating I have one suggestion to make;
it is that on the next occasion the
committee should arrange for the presentation of a bouquet to each of the
ladies taking part; they all deserve,
but only one received, a distinction
that was rather conspicuous if not
invidious.
The Arion Club.
On Tuesday evening, the Arion
Club gave the third concert of the
present season in the Victoria Theatre, in the opinion of good judges it
was the best. I am still justified in
my protest against thc importation
of third rate American singers, for
Mrs. Edith M. DuMond of Seattle
is as poor an artist as her predecessors who havc figured at the Arion
Club concerts. I can name at least
four sopranos in Victoria who are far
superior and who would have been
more acceptable. It is a pity that
the Committee does not take this
matter into its own hands, and cither
rely entirely on local talent or sec
that it gets something better. Apart
from this the concert was above criticism. Signor Ceccoti was very much
in evidence, with his really magnificent voice and his only too obvious
lack of training, still those two or
three high notes are a revelation, and
it is to bc hoped that his Manager
will bc able to get him into thc hands
of a first class master. Thc chorus
work was excellent, and the accompaniments of Miss Miles and Mr.
Burnett as unexceptionable as always.
The committee can congratulate
themselves on a splendid wind-up to
a successful season.
There is said to be no comedian on
the American stage today, that is
more popular with theatregoers than
is Francis Wilson, who, although he
has deserted the buffoonery of musical comedy and comic opera for more,
legitimate plays still holds the first
place in the hearts of theatregoers.
For the first time in several seasons,
this distinguished comedian is making an extended western trip,—and
he has not been seen in this section
of the country in anything but musical entertainment. This season, Mr.
Wilson is presenting a deliciously
funny farcical play called "When
Knights Were Bold," which Charles
Frohman secured for him and in
which for five months earlier in the
season he kept Broadway, New York,
theatregoers in roars of laughter. Thc
general concensus of opinion appears
to be that Mr. Wilson has never had
a part so eminently fitted to his uses
as the role of Sir Guy De Verc,
which he plays in "When Knights
Were Bold," and which Charles Frohman presents at the Victoria Theatre
on Monday, May 25th.
All a Mistake.
On Wednesday evening a number
of amateurs put on a farcical comedy,
entitled "All a Mistake" at Institute
Hall, the result was successful from
every standpoint. There was a full
house, which spells financial success,
an amusing play, good acting and a
The New Grand.
Next week Mr. Jamieson will introduce to his patrons the greatest
European vaudeville act that has ever
been booked over the Sullivan & Considine circuit, lt is the great Henri
French, the wonderful Parisian juggler, unicycler, mimic actor, and impersonator of great composers and
conductors; an artist who has astonished ancl delighted immense audiences in all the prominent theatres in
the capitals of Europe, and who commands a salary larger than that of
any act that plays in this country,
without regard to thc number of people composing it. Another high-
priced feature act booked for holiday
week is George Wilson, the best of
all minstrels, of "Waltz Me Again"
fame, and one of thc original members of thc famous Barlow-Wilson-
Primrose-West organization. Still another is Tbe Great Santell, the celebrated athlete and exponent of physical culture and muscular development, and the only acknowledged
rival of Sandow. Besides these three
sensational features there will be Miss
Lola Merman, a young violinist of
great promise. Miss Herman is a resident   of   Duncans,   B.C.,   and   Mr.
