Premier   McBride   has
gone to London.   He has
lost no time in setting out
on the mission which he
Undertook, when it was found that British
/olumbia had nothing to hope for from
he Dominion Government, that is noth-
Qg adequate to her just claims.   There
as been no nourish of trumpets, no party
bunder, no attempt to make political capiat, just a firm determination to carry.out
carefully prepared programme.    The
osition is unique.    Never before in the
jistory of the Empire has a Provincial
premier, or his official equivalent under-
aken a journey of seven thousand miles
3 invoke Imperial aid against the legislate proposals of his country's Prime Minster.   The Liberal Press and the Liberal
)pposition in the local Assembly have af-
ected to treat Premier McBride's mission
ightly; they have been generous enough
0 declare that they do not begrudge the
xpenditure of the public funds to give him
n European tour, and even the Colonist
ias declared that the Colonial Conference
•hich has called these high Canadian ofii-
ials to London will remind the English
«ople of Barnum's Circus.   The Liberal
'ress has asked: "What can Premier Mc-
Jride do?"   The answer is very simple,
is quite true that he cannot take the
aitiative in appealing to the Imperial
iovernment for Better Terms for British
bblumbia, but just as soon as Sir Wilfrid
laurier applies for Imperial legislation
give effect to the recommendations of
ie Ottawa Conference, and that is part
his mission, Premier McBride's oppor-
lity will come.   He can then intervene
id object to the ratification of that agree-
lent on the inadequate terms accorded to
[is Province;  and, under the provisions
the B. N. A. Act, his right of appeal
fill effectually block further progress until
amended offer, which he can honour-
Dly accept is made.   There is no doubt
lat Sir Wilfrid Laurier will either have-
make a very much bigger offer, certainly
it less than $250,000 a year in perpetu-
ly, or he will fail to secure the sanction
1 the Imperial Parliament to new legisla-
lon which would vary the provisions of
lie B. N. A. Act.
When a representative
he Impending Convention consisting of
oal Strike. delegates appointed by
coal operators and coal
jiiners remains in session for several weeks
rithout being able to solve their difficul-
les, or even to find a modus vivendi, there
lust be something radically wrong, and
lie public would like to know what it is.
t is no longer permissible that either
Derators or miners should be able to tie
Western Canada, and deprive more
[ian a million people of one of the prime
ecessaries of life at their own sweet will.
|ast winter at all points between Winnipeg
id the Rockies and between the Interna-
lonal Boundary Line and the Saskatchewan hardship was suffered and life en-
angered through lack of fuel.   So acute
Id the crisis become that without pro-
1st car-loads of coal were seized and used
the extremity.   Later on the subject
las dealt with in Parliament and it can-
ot be doubted that a strong sentiment has
sen aroused in favour of Government con-
fol of the fuel supplies.    This sentiment
has been expressed in the Arbitration Act
which has just come into force, and under
the provisions of which it is a penal offence to establish either a lock-out or a
strike without giving thirty days' notice,
and invoking the assistance of the arbitrators appointed under the Act. The
powers of this Board are extensive, and
if they are permitted to discharge their
duties without political interference much
good may result, although not perhaps in
the manner anticipated by the Government. It is as impossible to compel a
mine-owner to operate as to compel a miner
to work, if he does not wish, and just how
lightly both may be expected to interpret
their obligations in this regard may be
gathered from the high-minded action of
the Canada West Coal Company at Tabor,
which deliberately locked out the miners
on the very day that the Act came into
operation. It is satisfactory to know that
after sleeping on it they thought better of
their folly and re-opened the mines in two
days on the conditions demanded by the
miners, pending an ultimate decision of
the Arbitration Board. . The great advantage, however, which will result from this
new Act will be the ascertainment and publication of the facts bearing upon any dispute. Hitherto the public have been kept
in the dark; operators have invariably refused to disclose information without
which it was impossible to arrive at a fair
conclusion. All that is necessary to a
speedy settlement of great labour disputes,
especially in connection with matters
which intimately concern the public weal
is that the public shall be informed by a
reliable authority of everything bearing
on the case. It will then be impossible
for either side to establish even a temporary triumph upon a false issue. In this
connection two important facts must be
borne in mind, both of which seem to have
been ignored by the coal operators at their
recent conference. The first is that the
time has gone by to contest the right of
the miners to an eight-hour day " bank to
bank." This has now been universally
conceded and any attempt to delay its application to Western coal mines must and
should precipitate a struggle. The next is
that under existing conditions, with the
unexampled prosperity of the West, and
the unprecedented demand for coal, any
talk of a reduction of wages is absurd.
Having regard to these conditions and to
the hazardous nature of their calling, coal
miners are not too well paid anywhere, and
the public are prepared to pay a price for
coal which will enable the miner to realize
even more than his present earnings. The
attempt to break a wage scale by importing Oriental, or any low grade of labour,
can never be tolerated. The wise coal
operator is he who has assimilated these
facts and who does not wait for an informed and enlightened public opinion to
compel him to their acceptance, but takes
Time by the forelock and solves the problem for himself by making the concession.
The Colonist seriously
An Impossible informs its readers that
Metamorphosis.     Canadians generally like
Englishmen, that the poking of fun at the latter is not evidence of
dislike, but rather otherwise, that the fellow who is over charged with a sense of.
his own importance is liked well enough,
although he may bc taught a few lessons,
and finally that the Englishman who comes
to Canada to become a Canadian is as welcome as " flowers in May." Assuredly
not an Englishman in the West who reads
this apotheosis would fail to recognise
and respond to the feeling of brotherly
love which prompts it. All the same it
will be news to the average Englishman
that Canadians like him, at any rate he
will be apt to think that they adopt a
strange method of evincing their love; they
certainly teach him a few lessons, the principal one being that no country in the
world furnishes so many and such easy
opportunities of parting him from his
money. From Nova Scotia to British
Columbia the record of the Englishman's
capitalistic ventures is a history of wild
cats and gold bricks. No doubt this is
what is meant by poking fun at him, although he may be excused for not seeing
it in that light. One has only to consult
the various blue-books of Provincial and
Dominion Governments to discover to
what extent the Englishman figures in the
public service of the Dominion. Victoria
is the only place in Canada where he has
a chance, and that is diminishing, but the
most amusing part of the Colonist editorial
is the concluding sentence, which may be
taken as a fair measure of the hopeless
ignorance of the average Canadian editor,
when writing upon any subject which
touches British sentiment. He apparently makes it a condition even of decent
treatment to the Englishman that he
should have come to Canada to become a
Canadian. If this condition were as honestly expressed by the Dominion Government as by the editor of the Colonist there
would be an end to Canadian immigration
from Great Britain. The Englishman
who would leave the Motherland with the
intention of becoming a Canadian would
not be worth having. One wonders if
editors are by their calling deprived of all
sense of proportion. One wonders also
why an Englishman, proud of his nationality and of the traditions of his Empire,
should make a worse citizen, because the
Home-land, which gave birth to all the
Colonies, including Canada, must ever
hold the first place in his affections. It is
not to be wondered at that the population
of Canada remains so near the stagnation
limit, that the last decade showed only
half a million increase, neither is it to bo
wondered at that seventy-five per cent of
British born immigrants find their way
from Canada to the United States. The
real reason is that they are too independent to play second fiddle to the Canadian,
who has no use for them unless they have
money which he can acquire, or are willing to fetch and carry for him.
Sunday
Observance.
It is on all grounds regrettable that thc Government has not been able
to make a pronouncement on the subject of the Lord's Day
Act. Whilst fully recognizing thc invidious position in which the Attorney-General is placed through the cowardice of the
Dominion Government, The Week cannot
but register its protest against a delay
which, however justifiable on grounds of
expediency is undoubtedly inimical to the
cause of good government and calculated
to weaken public confidence in the inviolability of the law. It is not a question
of whether the Lord's Day Act is a judicious measure, or whether public sentiment
in this Porvincc desires its enforcement.
The merits and demerits of the Act have
passed out of purview and tho sole point
nt issue is whether the Provincial Govern
ment intends to enforce or veto it. The
Attorney-General, with whom the decision
virtually rests, and upon whom the onus
of acting is so unfairly laid, has made it
quite clear that he will assume no personal
liability, but that the Government or Parliament must decide. He stated on March
1st, when the Act came into force in the
Dominion that whatever course was determined on, there should be no delay in announcing it; he even mentioned a week as
the limit. When a large deputation,
headed by Mr. Secretary Eochester, and
introduced by Mr. Price Ellison, interviewed the Executive a short time afterwards the Premier assured those present
that there would be no delay and more
recently stated to Mr. Rochester that an
announcement would be made before his
departure for England. It is inconceivable that the matter can be held over indefinitely and while there may have been
difficulties in the way of a prompt settlement every loyal subject will, hope for a
speedy termination of a condition of
affairs which is both anomalous and demoralizing. Meanwhile British Columbia,
always regarded, and properly so, as the
most law-abiding Province in the Dominion, the Province in whicli the administration of the law has been most zealously
guarded and enforced for the first time
stands alone in its disregard of a legal
obligation which does not necessarily require action, merely decision. It may not
be uninteresting in this connection to
state that since the last issue of The Week
Archbishop Sweatman, Primate of Canada, has been appointed Honorary President of the L. D. A., Hon. J. P. Whitney, Premier of Ontario, Hon. Rodolph
Lemieux, Postmaster General, and Mr. J.
G. O'Donoghue, Solicitor to the Trades
and Labor Congress, Vice-Presidents.

Vancouver.
There must be something
radically Avrong with
the administration of the
police • department in
It is only a little while since
Chief Chisholm was appointed. He came
with splendid credentials both as to his
personal character and his professional
ability. No suggestion has ever been made
that he was cither incompetent or indifferent, and yet at the end of a short term
he is resigning, and his departure will be a
serious loss to the Terminal City. The
Mayor declares that the Chief has done his
duty faithfully and fearlessly, and appears
to endorse the Chief's statement that the
only reason he is leaving is that he had
been subjected to outside interference to
such an extent that he could not with any
regard for self-respect continue to act.
Then he made a rather serious charge, viz.,
that Commissioner Jeffs was appointed on
the Board of Police Commissioners for the
express purpose of making things uncomfortable for him. Rumour says that Commissioner Jeffs belongs to thc same class of
fanatical reformers which has afflicted Victoria recently, and which has succeeded in
doing more harm than good by reason of
the impracticable character of tlieir proposals. It is about time that this zeal for
reform was tempered by a little sanctified
common sense, in the interests of the average citizen, who is not a fanatic and who
believes in the excellent maxim: "Live and
let live." THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1907.
j    At The Street   §
\ Corner h
«* By THE LOUNGER «»
I am glad when I am able to sit
down and describe a lounge in a new
district. Some few weeks ago I was
enabled to write on the beauty of
Sidney and the excellence of her hostelry; this week I am going to talk
a little about Vancouver. Two days
and a half I spent there without an
umbrella; consequently my ever increasing love for the Terminal City
was somewhat dampened, but yet I
cannot grumble, because, though it is
true that Vancouver skies shed tears
of joy at my arrival, I have been informed that those which are above
Victoria wept tears of sorrow at my
departure. I am very much obliged
to them both, and feel deeply their
sympathy with my doings.
I don't think that I have ever given
any sort of a real description of Vancouver, and of how to reach it from
Victoria. If Capt. Webb were still
alive, or if Holbein were residing in
this part of the world they would be
able to save $4 for a passage as well
as an extra dollar for a berth, because
they would swim across. The ordinary person, however, has to take a
boat, and for that purpose, and also
for their own profit, the C. P. R. have
supplied a very nice little steamer
called "The Princess Victoria." The
same company have other boats besides this one, but they have not the
proud distinction of being called "The
C. P. R. Flyer," or words to that effect. This steamer is propelled by
screws which are operated by steam,
and can, when she tries, cover the
distance between the two cities in
about four hours. However, she
doesn't try when she is not on what
is called "the triangular run." Why it
is called so I have never been able to
find out, as she does not describe the
figure of a triangle at all, but that
fact is of minor -'mportance.
On reaching Vancouver the first
thing of importance which catches
the eye is an hotel runner; he is of
importance because he has to be
avoided. Most poeple know at which
hotel they intend to stay, and the
importunities and quarrels with which
one's cars are assailed has a very distressing effect on the nerves. The
poverty-stricken man, as for example
The Lounger, shoulders his own bag
and marches up from the wharf with
a look on his face which is intended
to convey the idea that he has never
before seen either a horse or an hotel
'bus.
On the right at the corner of Hastings and Granville streets is to be
seen the first story of the new Post
Office, which promises to be a magnificent erection, while just on the
opposite corner is the fencing round
the site reserved for the new Bank of
Commerce. Of a truth there is in
Vancouver now a spirit of what I can
only describe as "go-aheadness" such
as is seldom met with in towns under
the British flag.
But—alas that there should be "buts"
—there are two things in Vancouver
which sadly call for reform. One is
the state of her streets and sidewalks. Hastings street, though kepi
clean, would be a disgrace to a second class Indian village. The holes,
nay, the cavities which abound are
sufficient to deter any visitor from believing that Vancouver is, as she is,
a wealthy and prosperous city, full of
energetic citizens, who are zealous to
do all they can for thc place of their
birth or of their choice. And yet, let
us give pause and consider as to
whether a Victorian is justified in thus
criticising a neighbouring city when
bis own is so much to blame in thc
same matter. Are we, in Victoria,
very much better off in this respect?
I trow not. Gaze, Victorians, on
Government street; see the pitfalls
which are daily being offered to the
legs of your horses; consider the
splashing, which a cart-wheel suddenly descending into what seems like
the pit itself, affords to a lady who
has put on a new dress for thc first
time. No, for once Victoria and Vancouver arc in harmony on one ques
tion; there can be no doubt but that
a big appropriation should be made
in both cities for the amelioration of
the condition of their streets, and
more particularly of their roadways.
And there is another point about
Victoria which I might mention for
at least the third time, while on this
subject. When is the bare and ugly
space on the right hand side, going
down, of Government and Belleville
streets going to be filled in and made
to look "a thing of beauty and a joy
forever"? At present it merely affords a short cut, which I invariably
take myself, for people who want to
go down to the C. P. R. offices. Perhaps, who knows, that the three hundred thousand dollars which the Hon.
Mr. Tatlow is supposed by the Liberal press to have stolen from the
Government revenues has been set
aside for the erection on this spot of
a Home for Lost Dogs, or perhaps
Commissioner Coombs has suggested
that it be used for a building to be
devoted to the regeneration of Remittance Men. In any case it ought
to be used for something, and I
would suggest that it be laid out with
evergreens and grass, and fenced off
with a small and neat border from
the sidewalk.
I must now get back to my muttons, and continue to discourse on
Vancouver. My second complaint
about this city and one in which I am
unable to include Victoria, is the
abominable telephone service which
exists there. How any city, which is
perpetually patting herself on the
back that she is so far ahead of the
Capital, can maintain a service which
possesses such antiquated telephone
instruments as does Vancouver is beyond me. They remind me very
much of an original telephone which
we had in my own house at home
some fifteen years ago. It never was
any good, but the bell rang, and when
we wanted to communicate with the
stables, to which the other end was
attached, the coachman came to the
door for orders. The idea of a place
like Vancouver still keeping telephones where it is necessary to turn
a handle in order to attract "Central"
is perfectly preposterous, and the
sooner the company there realise this,
the better it will be for the reputation of Vancouver, and the realisation of her Hundred Thousand
dream.
There is one thing in Vancouver,
however, which far surpasses anything I havc come across since I left
London, though possibly the same
luxury may exist in Montreal and Toronto. I refer to the Bismark Cafe.
Now, my readers, you know that I
seldom, if ever, indulge in writing-up
an advertiser; it's not in my line. But
in this case I feel that as I have run
down certain abuses in the city it is
only fair that I should write-up the
one thing which appealed to me most.
I had the good fortune to be present
at the ball given by the Vancouver
Rowing Club, and to test the catering
of Messrs. McKinnon & Bancroft, and
so much struck was I with their efforts that I determined to miss an
appointment in order to have lunch
at their excellent cafe. There is a
good stringed orchestra, the service
is of thc best and the menu is more
than above reproach. That you try it
when next you get the chance is thc
advice of LOUNGER.
Why Didst Thou Come?
V*.'hv didst thou look upon my face,  O
Sun!
And  make me glad  with  joy  till  then
unknown,
Flooding  the prison-house of life with
spring, ,     „
With   scent   of   flowers,   and   of  moist
leaves blown
Upon   a   wind   wild   as   the   swallow s
wing?
0 Love! why didst thou come?   My soul
undone
Wanders   in   darkest   ways—my   heart,
a stone.
Mocks   Its  own  pain.    Why didst thou
come to me
Smiling,   then   turn   and   leave  me   all
alone, ,   ,
As  fades  the sail  from  wrecked souls
on the sea?
—H.  Talbot Kummer.
Spring Is Here!
Spring time is here and summer
will soon bc with us again; also the
summer tourist, and particularly the
tourist from thc Indian Department
at Ottawa, who will make his annual
escape from tliat torrid (in August)
centre, to the cool breeze:, of the Pacific, for the sole, purpose., however,
on this occasion, as always before, of
settling thc Songhees Indian Reserve.

Bulkley Pioneer.
Mrs. E. Morrison Grout, a well-
known Seattle newspaper woman,
who at one time was associate editor
of the Commonwealth, the Mail and
Herald and the Week End is to be
the editor of the Bulkley, B. C, Pioneer, which is to be published for the
first time on April 16.
Until transportation facilities are
provided the paper will be published
at Vancouver. Its mission will be to
exploit the resources of the famous
Bulkley Valley. The paper will be
backed by John Dorsay, who is thoroughly acquainted with the country
to which the new publication is expected to attract attention.
Mrs. Grout's various experience on
the Pacific Coast will be of great
value in exploiting the Canadian valley. As soon as the transportation
season opens a complete printing
plant will be shipped into Bulkley and
the Pioneer will then be issued from
its permanent home.
The Seattle friends and acquaintances of Mrs. Grout are sure that she
will make good in the Province and
that the attractiveness of that particular section will be set forth in a
very convincing manner. — Seattle

On the Cars.
Any one who has ever travelled 011
the New York subway in rush hours
can easily appreciate the following:
A little man, wedged into the middle of a car, suddenly thought of
pickpockets, and quite as suddenly
remembered that he had some money
in his overcoat. He plunged his hand
into his pocket and was somewhat
shocked upon encountering the fist
of a fat fellow-passenger.
"Aha!" snorted the latter. "I
caught you that time!"
"Leggo!" snarled the little man.
"Leggo my hand!"
"Pickpocket!'' hissed the fat man.
"Scoundrel!" retorted the little one.
Just then a tall man in their vicinity glanced up from his paper.
"Ild like to get off here," hc drawled, "if you fellows don't mind taking
your hands out of my pocket,"

VICTORIA GAS COMPANY, LIMITED. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 13. 1907
WE WANT you to see our store, and to see it at your leisure. Our establishment is worth your inspection. That it will interest you we are positive.
It will advertise us more effectively than anything we can say or write. To intending purchasers we offer what is, by common consent, the most
complete and modern Home Furnishing Stock in Western Canada. Every day sees new arrivals in nearly every line. Charming pieces in
the Crockery and Glassware departments and new creations in the Furniture line are continually coming in. We always endeavor to display
an attractive array of extra values in all departments—and there is satisfaction in knowing that every one of them is honest and true. You
may be down town today, if so, drop in.
More Wedgwood Arrivals
Here is the most attractive low priced line of Wedgwood we have seen... A line of Cream and Milk Jugs that for style and value cannot be excelled. Ordinary lines of
Jugs are usually priced higher than these lines—and Wedgwood is no ordinary line. The artistic merit of all Wedgwood goods is unquestioned. These Jugs are made in barrel
and churn shapes, some have three dark blue bands and others have three dark green bands.   All are extremely pretty and effective.  Several sizes at, each, 40c, 35c, 30c and 25c.
Another pleasing line to which we wish to call your attention is our showing of Wedgwood Teas and Saucers, in fine earthenware and China. There is a very large assortment of styles and a range of prices to suit any purse.   We have them at $4.00, $3.50, $2.00, $2.50, $2.00, $1.75, $1.50, $1.25, 75c, 50c, 40c, 35c  and    25c
"Never Break" Steel Spiders—Frying Pans
Here is something that will surely interest all those who have occasion
to use a Frying Pan. We advise all cooks, whether their work is in
the house, in the camp, on the trail or anywhere, to investigate this
line.
These are made seamless from one piece of No. 14 gauge steel. They
are unbreakable and will not warp but will sit properly upon the stove.
They are mirror polished, making cleaning very easy work.
The cold handle is also another feature which you should not overlook. This handle is rounding, giving a perfect fit for the hand and being hollow is always cool. The "Never Break" seamless steel Spider
(Fry Pan) is the best made.
No.   8 size, bottom   9 inches, top ioj4 inches (diameter), each 60c
No.   9 size, bottom 10 inches, top nj4 inches (diameter), each 75c

tve given "The Free Lance" one of
lose sumptuous productions for
Ihich their names are noted.    The
scenic embellishment is picturesque
and beautiful, the costumes of regal
magnificence but always in good
taste. An idea of the story of the
opera may be gleaned from the following:
The treasury of the Emperor of
Braggadocia being empty, in order to
replenish it he decides to wed his
daughter, Princess Yolande, to Prince
Florian, son of the Duke of Grafti-ina.
The latter is willing that his son
should enter upon this match for the
very same purpose. But Princess
Yolande has scruples about finding a
husband in such a cut-and-dried manner. On the eve of the Duke's arrival she disappears, and the. Emperor, in order not to disappoint the
Duke, introduces Griselda, a goose-
girl, and shepherdess, as his daughter.
Prince Florian, for the same reason
as the Princess, also keeps aloof, so
the Duke orders his soldiers to find
his son, or at least provide a substitute, whereupon they compel Sieg-
mund Lump (Joseph Cawthorn) to
impersonate the Prince. In the meantime the real Prince and Princess,
disguised as peasants, meet and
promptly fall in love, and when Sieg-
mund and Griselda are introduced to
one another they find they are already
man and wife. When it is discovered that both the Emperor and the
Duke have been financing their offspring for the purpose of replenishing
the treasury and that neither country
has gained any advantage thereby,
war is declared, Griselda commanding
the Amazon army of Braggadocia,
while her husband, Lump, is made
commander-in-chief of that of Graft-
iana. The story, as may be seen, affords plenty of scope for comic complications and happy, humorous episodes of which the excellent comedians of the company take full opportunity. A complete orchestra of
trained musicians accompanies the organization.
"Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch."
There is no gainsaying the popularity of "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage
Patch," which comes to the Victoria
Theatre April 16th. It has proven to
be a ninexhaustible fountain of mirth
for all amusement lovers. Mrs. Wiggs
has charms that soothe the most hardened of theatregoers, and almost all
of the characters in the play are distinct and highly interesting types.
The public have read the books of
Mrs. Rice from which Mrs. Flexner
made the dramatisation, and are glad
to renew their acquaintanceship with
Mrs. Wiggs, Lovey Mary, Mis' Hazy,
Mr. Stubbins, Little Tommy and the
other delightful characters and find
a common bond of sympathy and
union. It is a piece, which, because
of its originality and Dickens-like
sweetness of humour, genial wit and
wholesome philosophy, appeals to all
classes. It clearly fulfills its mission,
that of sunshine and laughter, imbued
with a wholesome and optimistic philosophy. It is not to be wondered at
that Mrs. Flexner's dramatisation of
Mrs. Rice's stories has proven even
more popular than the originals, for
the comedy features of the latter have
been elaborated to a notable extent,
the juvenile element preserved, and
all of the prominent village types put
upon the stage in so clever and ingenious a manner that the audience
is kept convulsed with laughter
throughout the performance.
preposterous demands. The Two Cas-
cttas appear in what is to mc an original turn, viz., as whirlwind dancers,
and their movements were most
graceful. Cushing and Merrill, in a
comic travesty of Anthony and Cleopatra, present a laughable absurdity,
while Sousa and Sloan as comical
magicians brought thc house down;
the lady does the tricks and the man
pretends to. In the course of their
work they introduce several pretty
pigeons and some beautiful little
dogs. Belle Belmont, "The People's
Favourite," has a good contralto voice
and she is not afraid to open her
mouth in order that her listeners may
hear her words; she is also a clever
raconteur with a good presence. The
illustrated song was somewhat different in tune from the ordinary and
was well rendered by Mr. Keane.
Thc moving pictures were good.
the great political causes and the outstanding personalities of his time are
freely discussed. His career as editor
of the Evening Post for nineteen
years occupies the closing chapters.
Literary Note.
The New Grand.
It is rare for a Victoria audience to
acknowledge the performance of the
artistes who visit their city to bestow
such an unstinted mead of applause
as that which has characterised the
turns at the above theatre this week.
Rawls and Kaufman put on a most
amusing comedy sketch entitled
"Mush," in whicli the former as a
black boy keeps his audience in roars
of laughter, as does the latter by her
The Macmillan Company has just
published "The Life and Letters of
Edwin Lawrence Godkin," in two
volumes, edited by Rollo Ogden, editor of the New York Evening Post.
In addition to the story of Mr. God-
kin's services, remarkable for so
young a man, as war correspondent
in the Crimea, an account is given of
conditions in the Southern States
just before the Civil War, as Mr.
Godkin found them on a horseback
tour in the winter of 1856-7. His comments on thc course of thc war itself, and the generals and public men
who came to thc front at that time,
are supplemented by a vigorous argument in advocacy of the American
contentions in the Trent affair. Thc
founding of the Nation and its early
history are covered mainly by Mr.
Godkin's letters. Jn his correspondence with Prof. Charles Eb'ot Norton, James Russell Lowell. F. L.
Olmsted, John  Bigelow and  ot'-rs,
No book in recent years has
achieved the position of a classic
more swiftly than Mr. Owen Wister's
"Lady Baltimore." Although it is
less than a year since it was published, it has been repeatedly spoken
of as an almost perfect delineation of
a phase of American life. Mr. James
Ford Rhodes, in the preface to the
last volume of his history, commends
it as indispensable to the understanding of conditions in the South since
the War. More recently, Mr. Henry
James, in "Thc American Scene," singles out Mr. Wister's book for special commendation. Mr. James, in
his chapter on Charleston, tells of his
visit to the "Exchange" — "the very
Exchange in fact lately commemorated in a penetrating study, already
much known to fame, of the little
that is left of thc local society."
What I'll So.
You nsk me what I'll do the day
I wake and nnd you gone your way?
I'll put mo on another gown,
And change my nat, and go me down
The other way from which I went,
When you and I were that way bent.
And I will mako myself so fair,
With laughing lips, and curling hair,
That soon another swain I'll And,
And all will say "She does not mind."
But never will I wear that gown,
Pin on that hat, or go me down
The blessed way that once I went,
When you and I were that way bent.

AS AGENTS for Lemp's
Brewing Co., we have
pleasure in advising all
readers of The Week that we
have recently distributed to
the leading clubs, hotels, bars,
and licensed grocery stores a
consignment of one of the
finest brewings of Lemp's Beer
we have ever been privileged to
handle. Lemp's Beer always
maintains the highest standard
quality, but frequently there is
a brewing that—for some unknown reason seems "Better
than the Best"; it has a sparkle,
flavor, and vim all its own, just
that superiority—tangible to
the taste, but difficult to define
—if you order LEMP'S BEER
for your next drink, you will
appreciate exactly what we
mean.

For the proper development of soft,

ish Mail ALL the muscles of the
bdy are brought into play equally
arms, shoulders, back, chest, legs,
ost children are on tlieir feet too
uch; leg muscles are over-exercised
[others not enough. For this reason
jicycles and other children's vehi-
es, propelled by the feet and legs
one, are a mistake. The IRISH
•AIL is Ihe one car that exercises

Notes on
Provincial News
The question of roads into the interior of Vancouver Island is an important one, there is probably no
country on this Continent so difficult
to prospect and so impossible to colonize in the absence of roads. Now
that intrepid pioneers have discovered
mineral treasures in the very heart
of the Island, and the whole country
is waking up to the possibilities of
development a special effort should
be made to secure the necessary Government aid to enable settlers and
miners to handle their property. There
is little doubt that in a short time a
railway will be constructed from Nanaimo to Alberni, and another from
Wellington to Comox, these lines will
require feeders, which in the first
place will be wagon roads and subsequently branch lines. The Nanaimo
Herald is rendering good service to
this section of the country by drawing attention to the above facts, and
deserves the support of the Island
press. There is a great future before
the section of country lying between
Nanaimo and Comox.
ley is still idle for lack of water, in
consequence of the late season, and
the continued frosts. In former years
the middle of March has found
Twenty-Mile Creek a raging torrent,
this year the snow is still held on
the mountain tops by excessively cold
weather, and in consequence there is
little water in the creek; so little, in
fact, that the Hedley Gazette assures
its readers that there is not even
enough to tone down the whiskey.
J. H. Schofield of Trail, the new
and popular Member for Ymir, has
done well for his constituency at the
first time of asking. He has secured
no less than $26,000 for public works,
in addition to getting a share of the
general Provincial grant for bridges.
Mr. Schofield does not intrude upon
the attention of the House, nor is he
foolish enough to emulate the example of some new members who cannot be induced to keep quiet, but he
manages to get in the practical kind
of work which benefits a constituency
and consolidates the position of its
representative.
It is rather hard on the Vancouver
World to have to deny one day the
sensational rumour which it has published the day before, but it keeps
on doing it with such unvarying regularity that the reader may safely
predicate a denial tomorrow for nearly every item of news printed today.
There is something to be said for this
style of journalism, in that it only
leaves the public labouring under an
illusion for twenty-four hours, and
not even as long as that when once
the system is mastered.
William K. Esling, the proprietor
of the Rossland Miner, is so enamored of Victoria that he is unable to
drag himself away from its charms.
He came here three weeks ago to
size up the situation, he is remaining
to enjoy himself, and by way of keeping his prentice hand in, occupies a
seat in the Press Gallery of the
House and takes notes of the proceedings for the delectation of his
Rossland readers. He intends to re
main till the end of the session.
Kamloops has a grievance which is
voiced in a letter published in the
Standard of the 6th inst. The complaint is that in Bulletin No. 17, entitled "Game of British Columbia,"
no mention is made of Kamloops as a
sporting centre. So far as fishing is
concerned it has a very high reputation, whilst grouse, prairie chicken,
geese and ducks are all plentiful in
their season. Kamloops has one advantage not possessed by every hunting centre, in that it is the home of
a number of the most expert guides
in the West. The Week re-echoes
the wish of the writer of the letter
referred to that the next game bulletin of the Province will include
some reference to Kamloops.
Revelstoke is amongst the most
progressive of British Columbia cities.
Its growth of late years has been
remarkable, and in order to keep
abreast of the requirements of the
times, it has just passed a municipal
by-law authorising the installation of
an auxiliary power and light plant.
Revelstoke realises that cheap power
will be an important factor in building up any city which aspires to the
establishment of industries, and it
will not be long before the city which
is the key to the Arrow Lakes and
thc Columbia is an important manufacturing centre.
During a recent visit to Nelson,
Mr. C. C. Chipman, thc Chief Commissioner in Canada of the Hudson's
Bay Company, announced his intention of increasing the business of his
company in the Kootenay capital, and
also to add some important departments to those at present being handled. The Chief Commissioner paid
a well-deserved compliment to Mr.
Gigot, the indefatigable and popular
manager of the company.
The Midway Star takes a more
reasonable view of the present industrial restlessness than it does of
some subjects. The following paragraph is not without true insight and
it should be pondered by those whom
it concerns:
Workingmen appear to be striking
for increased prosperity from one end
of the continent to the other. Those
who are getting a dollar a day want
a dollar and a quarter, and those getting six and a half dollars a day want
seven dollars. In the latter case reasonable limits seem to have been
passed, and another pull on the financial string might break it. It can't
go on indefinitely.

Nelson leads the way in festivities
and social functions. No city of its
size so liberally patronises everything which tends to enliven existence. It has an Agricultural Show,
a Fruit Show, a Flower Show, a Regatta, to say nothing of the 24th of
May and ist of July celebration,
which any city of the West might
envy. Recently it had a ball which
demonstrated the inadequacy of its
largest public building for that purpose, whereupon the Daily Canadian
points a moral in thc following editorial:
The ball in aid of the Kootenay
Lake General Hospital was a splendid
success financially and afforded opportunity for enjoyment to about 300
people. The members of thc Women's Hospital Aid deserve every
credit for the arrangements, the music, the programme, floor, decorations and supper were perfect. But
the affair demonstrates that even the
armoury is inadequate for a public
ball in Nelson. Without uncomfortable crowding 150 people might dance,
if all were skilful and careful, but
when the styles are varied, and some
peculiar, and the number participating goes over 200, it is patent to all
that Nelson needs a much larger hall.
R. T. Lowery says that the air is
so rarilied in Phoenix that every time
you take a drink of rye you can see
the butterflies in Paradise.
According to the Whitehorse Star
the Northward rush has already begun. We take the following from
issue of March 29th:
The interruption in the train service this week hag somewhat delayed
the stage service, but from now on
stages will be rushed out at the rate
of two or three every day and all of
them will be crowded with passengers. While there is bound to be a
rush, there is no doubt but that the
traffic can all be handled without any
congestion.
The Daly Reduction Mill at Hed-
Kclowna is to have a public park.
It might appear premature to be
thinking of this in a city which is
only springing up and is at present
devoted to the cultivation of fruit
and tobacco, but the people of Kelowna are nothing if not progressive;
they are looking ahead and do not
intend to bc caught napping. In this
Western world things move so rapidly that it is never too soon to begin
preserving open spaces in thc centre
of new towns to form recreation
grounds for future generations. Kelowna is making a wise move which
could well be copied by other towns.
This Company is not supported by
Government subsidies, but by the
good will and patronage of the travelling public and shippers.

A well-attended meeting of the
Nicola Valley Conservative Association was held at Coutlee on Saturday
last. The following were elected officers for the ensuing year: Honorary president, Hon. Richard McBride;
president, Ric. A. Fraser; vice-presidents, D. Mclnnes, H. S. Cleasby;
secretary, G. M. Brash; treasurer, H.
H. Matthews. The above with C. L.
Frick, R. L. Clark and James Smith,
form the executive of the association.
It was decided to ask Hon. R. McBride to address a meeting in Nicola
on some date early in June.—Nicola
Herald.
The Slocan Mining Review thus
chronicles the achievement of the respected Member for the riding in connection with his recent success in the
Legislative Assembly:
When "Bill" Hunter stumped the
riding in January, he told his auditors
if elected he would pull for the Slocan first, last and always. He has
been swift to do the right thing. By
bringing in and successfully pushing
through a unique measure to give borrowing powers to Slocan City he has
shown his masterly business qualities
at an early stage of the game, and
thus made himself solid with his Slocan City constituents. "Our Bill" is
no great shakes on peddling hot air,
but when it comes to shrewd, mental,
twentieth century methods of doing
business he gets there with both feet.
That's one wise piece of legislation
sorely needed which Slocan electors
will never forget. Hit us again, Bill;
we like it.
The recently announced decision of
I Premier McBride to go to London
shortly  in  the   interests  of  British
Columbia's claim to better terms, has
]been the signal for a fresh outburst
of pleasantry from the   Opposition
press.    Some of us    remember the
facetiousness of these same knights
of the quill prior to the last election,
land would gently remind them that
|'he laughs best   who   laughs last."

According to the Atlin Claim Prince
Rupert does not offer any attractions
even to the Hindu labourer. In a recent issue it states that a number of
Hindus arrived at Prince Rupert to
work on a sawmill; they spent one
night there and the same boat that
brought them took them back.
ft The Daily Canadian says: "It is
["open to reasonable doubt whether
ithere are enough clean and honest
limen among the Liberal Members of
■.Parliament (Federal) to fill all the
Ipositions in the Cabinet." No decent
Jman will envy the individual whose
[diseased imagination is capable of disporting the facts to such an extent.
[There undoubtedly is plenty of room
{for improvement in the morals of the
[men who fill important positions in
[public life, but bad as things are, they
[have not yet reached such a pass as
[to furnish the slightest ground for
[the characterization of the Daily Ca-
Jnadian. This is just one of those
[freaks of the gamin which explains
[many things.
According to the Cowichan Leader
the influx of summer visitors has already commenced, and that delightful
district promises to be more popular
this year than ever.
The Easter holiday brought so large
a number of visitors, attracted by the
fishing in the lakes and river, that the
hotels were crowded to overflowing
and in spite of the unauspicious weather some good catches were made,
with bait we fear, for fish were shy
of the fly; but even those who were
least successful went away satisfied
with their short sojourn in "this most
charming spot," as they expressed it,
determined to repeat their visit frequently during the spring and summer.
Things are so slow in the Royal
Iburg  that  the  Daily  News  accords
Ispace and the dignity of a large scare
[heading on the front page to an incident in which a fox terrier pup and
steel collar figure.   The steel collar was too tight for the pup and was
choking  him,  whereupon  the   Daily
|News scribe expands the incident to
nearly half a column, dragging in the
lost  blood-curdling descriptions  of
the   torture   suffered   by   the   half-
JBtrangled pup.    It is comforting to
|earn that "the gratitude of the dumb
beast was touching in the extreme,
Expressing its thanks in an almost
iiuman manner."
The Vernon News informs the outside world that diamonds have been
discovered in the Okanagan. We
knew long ago that gold had been
discovered there principally in pippins,
but diamonds! Well, perhaps it is
black diamonds, in which case it is
not so astonishing, but with such a
splendid heritage in its fruit-lands the
Okanagan can well afford to dispense
even with diamonds.
"Political rabies" is the phrase coined by the Okanagan to characterise
the affliction known as "political partisanship." The only surprise is that
the Okanagan should have made the
discovery since the phrase is fairly
applicable.
The vagaries of the editor of the
■Jew Westminster Daily News have
Usually been attributed to blind political partizanship, but it would appear
"is if his critics have been altogether
loo charitable.   In a recent issue he
Recounts for what has    puzzled  so
lany people as follows:
"There are telephone poles whicli
lluplicate    themselves   and    hitching
"bosts which dance jigs in the small
liours of the morning, to say nothing
af keyholes which deliberately dodge
|-he seeking latch   key,   and snakes
vhich crawl where no snakes should
be.   Everything   depends   upon the
Inental condition of tlie observer."
We had no idea that he had it so
badly.
The Golden Star makes the following announcement:
W. W. Baer, formerly editor of the
Nelson Canadian, is now on the editorial staff of the Victoria Colonist.
His place is now filled by R. J. Clark,
until recently reporter on that paper.
A. B. Grace is nothing if not loyal
Jo his own city, and he works off the
■ollowing little screed on the subject
If Easter millinery which will be appreciated far beyond the limits of
Cranbrook:
Although last Sunday was disagree-
Ible, the fair sex of Cranbrook prome-
laded the public thoroughfares and
lisplayed their costly and pretty East-
|r bonnets; and we will state right
lere, to the credit of the ladies, not
tne of the bonnets bore the trade
nark of Tim Eaton, having been pur-
Ihased in local millinery stores.
The Nanaimo Free Press thus
chronicles the defection of a cranky
subscriber:
Both local papers have sustained the
loss of a subscriber, a prominent official of the town, who has discontinued
the papers on the ground that they
publish the weekly Sunday school lesson. Well, it takes all kinds of people
to make a world. If the gentleman in
question, or anyone else, is looking
for those newspapers that will not
publish a news item that does not
strike their particular fancy, they are
doomed to disappointment. Meanwhile the newspapers will endeavour
to publish the news that will serve the
general interests of its readers, and
not cater to the wants of one individual or class of readers.
We have all read that "in Springtime a young man lightly turns to
thoughts of love." Another authority
tells us that "every bullet has its billet." Modern day psychologists translate this as an affinity of souls, but
the Atlin Claim of the 30th ult. put
the same eternal truth in twentieth
century language as follows:

The Atlin Claim commends the new
Provincial Secretary for promptly redeeming his election pledges, a virtue
not granted to all public men of influence:
"The Honourable the Provincial
Secretary on the platform before the
election promised to support and further all just legislation in favour of
Labour. One of his first acts was to
raise the wages of the employees of
the Government printing office to
conform with the scale of the Typographical Union, and dating it back
so as to make it effective from the
first of January, 1907. This matter
has been for years a vexed question,
but Dr. Young's action has wiped out
the discontent, and a satisfactory feeling now prevails both in the printing
office and among union men generally."

"Still restless nature dies and grows
From age to age the creatures run."
Scientists tell us that there is no
rest in nature, not only does this
earth in common with myriads of
planets revolve in space, but within
itself changes are constantly taking
place. Thus in the midst of the trackless ocean islands will appear, and disappear. The fretful waters of the sea
are continually moving and setting
back the coast line, deltas are being
formed where mighty rivers join the
sea, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in many parts of the globe
are continually altering its topography, so that if the surface of the
earth were studied microscopically
from some other planet, it would present a constantly changing appearance and each successive picture
would accentuate obvious differences.
These changes are more or less
subtle, secret and unnoticed, and do
not challenge attention until by successive trifles they have effected a
most marked change. And these alterations are apart from the great
convulsions, the cyclonic and periodic
metamorphoses which have revolutionised the apearance of the earth
and the conditions of existence.
All thinkers have conceded that
there is a relation between the lessons which may be learned from a
careful study of inanimate and animate nature; the changes which have
taken place in the former are paralleled in the latter, and by so much
the more as man is greater and of
greater interest than the world he inhabits is a study of human society
and its epochal changes of surpassingly greater interest than a contemplation of earth movements and climatic
conditions.
There is no more enthralling study
than to contrast the average conditions of life in the twentieth century
with those of the centuries which
have preceded it. Every age has its
key note, and unquestionably the key
note of human society today is activity. The Western World would call
it bustle or perhaps hustle. But the
fact remains that the marvellous development of appliances, the product
of the fertile imagination of the race,
has multiplied the various means of
occupation and recreation to such an
extent that in every class of society
there is less repose, less sitting by
the fireside, less reading, less absorption in thc quieter pursuits of life
than at any previous period. On the
other hand there is a greater craving
for excitement, a craving both created and pandered to by thc enormously increased possibilities- of active enjoyment. The world is richer,
people dress better, and therefore are
more inclined to display themselves,
and to frequent places of public resort. The family circle has given
place to the theatre party, the inevitable question after the evening meal
is not what shall we do, but where
shall we go; the hour of retiring has
gradually receded, and it is no longer
a "facon de parlcr" to speak of turning the night into day. In the largest
cities both of thc Old and the New
World, people throng the streets long
after midnight, and in some of the
most prosperous of Western cities offices havc within the last six months
been kept open all night to cope with
the influx of business.
We know how Gibson and other
artists have satirised thc popular craze
by representing the millionaire taking
his holiday in the midst of an army
of stenographers and telegraphers,
and this is barely a caricature of thc
spirit of thc age.
These facts call for serious reflection and I am not sure that thc casual
observer has looked far enough beneath the surface to grasp the important lessons which they teach. Is it
not a fact that something is occurring in the human race similar to a
recognised phenomenon among the
lower orders; I refer to the theory
according to which unused faculties
become atrophied, like the fish in the
caves of Kentucky which have lost
the sense of sight through not having
exercised it for many generations, so
there is some reason to fear that man
is losing the power to rest, to be
quiet, to enjoy or even to sustain
solitude, to practice meditation, or to
appreciate aloofness in any form. And
yet human nature in the main has not
changed; rest and quiet are as necessary as ever they were, if health and
vigour are to be maintained. Indeed
the heavier the drain upon our nervous forces the greater the need for
recurrent periods of absolute restful-
ness. The lack of this is producing
results which are painfully evident,
in the New World especially, where
competition is the keenest, wealth the
most rapidly acquired, and the rush
of life most obvious, there is an admitted deterioration in physical manhood, and a still more marked one in
physical womanhood. It is bearing
fruit in the premature aging of both,
in lack of poise, in excessive nervousness and in corresponding loss of dignity and development of jerkiness in
the national character.
It is bail enough that the individual should suffer, it is infinitely
worse where great issues are at stake,
and international complications possible, that this trait should develop
as it has done to the danger point.
A well known Counsel has labelled
the latest phase of this development
the "Dementia Americana." I do not
think, however, that it can be regarded as applicable only to Americans, although they may exhibit it in
the most acute form. It is common
to the race throughout the civilised
world, and is due to the evolution of
conditions which are inseparable from
thc unfettered exercise of man's inventive faculty in devising means of
occupying and of killing time. The
wise man, the thinker, the philosopher, he who takes a sane view of
life, who knows the complexities of
human nature, who has studied the
cost and determined the penalty of
ignoring natural laws and yielding to
the impulses of activity which are
moving the world today, is appalled
at the prospect, and is anxiously
casting about for some word of wisdom so expressed that it shall sink
into the mind of the masses that they
may be checked in the pursuit of a
fetish which, while it is the latest
phase of social evolution, is surely
luring men to the weakening if not
the destruction of the finer instincts
of humanity.

The opportunity presented to you now is one that will lay the
foundation of a fortune for you. We cannot make you rich by selling you 100 shares for $25,00; 200 shares for $50.00; 400 shares
for $100.00; 1,000 shares for $250.00, or 2,000 shares for $500.00;
but we feel sure you can make that $500 full $2,000, and when we
strike big oil the $2,000 will be $10,000 or more.
THESE ARE FACTS—We have 960 acres of land only three
miles from the new Canadian Northern Railroad at Marinville, and
only twenty-three miles northwest of Edmonton and two more transcontinental lines. We struck a flow of Natural Gas at a depth of
550 feet that burned to a height of twenty feet. The supply is practically unlimited, and only twenty-three miles of pipe line will market
it. There are hundreds of thousands of tons of high-grade asphalt
on our property, formed by the seepage of oil from below. Oil sand
appears on the surface in many places, and crude oil gathers in pools
in a twenty-foot hole. The geological formation is similar to the
rich Summerland oil fields in California. The Canadian Government pays a bounty of one and a half cent per gallon on all crude oil
produced in this district, hence our net profit will be over forty cents
per barrel, and this is more than tlie California producer gets for his
product.
THE OIL FOUND NEAR EDMONTON has an asphalt base,
not a paraffin, and is of a high specific gravity. It is strictly a fuel
oil, and needs no expensive refinery, as it is ready for the market as
it comes out of the ground. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and
the Southern Pacific Railway systems use this oil exclusively as fuel
for their engines; scores of steamships use it; hundreds of factories
use it, and thousands of families use it for cooking and heating.
WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE NATURAL GAS.
WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE ASPHALTUM.
EITHER THE GAS OR THE ASPHALTUM WOULD
PAY BIG DIVIDENDS ON THE STOCK.
We have the largest, finest and most complete outfit and machinery every shipped into Canada. WE WILL BE DRILLING
EARLY IN APRIL.
We believe confidently, and so do the Canadian Government
experts, that AVE HAVE THE OIL.
Mr. H. L. Williams, manager, is in Edmonton with the drillers
and other experienced workers getting out the derrick and getting
ready to drill.
Our stock is fully paid and non-assessable; hence the purchaser
assumes no liability whatever.
We can prove every statement we have made. We are anxious
to prove them. It will pay you to pay us a call. Only about 20,000
shares left to sell at 25c per share, par value $100.

THE 11YSTERY OF AN ORCHID.
Being the true account ol an incident
that convulsed European politics.
(Continued from Last Week)
To say I was amazed at what M.
Reval suggested is to put it mildly.
I began to realize that I was an infant in the devious ways of government and diplomacy, and that not
even the gigantic mind of M. Pushkovicii availed anything against a system which was wise with the wisdom, and profound with the philosophy of all the ages. Even my friend
M. Reval could discuss these matters
with the sagacity and finesse of a
Richelieu or a Machiavelli.
"What then is expected of me?" I
asked.
"To follow M. Collinski wherever
he goes not to lose sight of him
until he crosses the Russian frontier.
To ascertain if possible what transactions he engages in; and to keep
me posted constantly so that we can,
if necessary, invoke the aid of the
Britisli Government."
"Where is M. Collinski now?" I enquired.
"At Claridge's Hotel. He has contented himself so far with strolling
along Pall Mall, lunching at the Carlton, and has just returned to the
hotel to dress for dinner."
"And if he leaves this country?"
"Follow him to the ends of the
earrth. Unlimited funds are at your
disposal."
Shortly afterwards I left M. Reval
and in a suitable disguise lest M.
Collinski should recognize me, registered at Claridgcs. Suffice it to say
that for three days I shadowed M.
Collinski. It was an easy matter for
his habits were of the simplest. . He
would rise at ten, have breakfast,
walk round the park, lunch at the
Club, smoke and read for an hour,
stroll into a bookstore or a florists
—he seemed fond of flowers—return
to his hotel, dine, sit in the smoke-
room a couple of hours, take his
toddy and retire for the night. A
more harmless old gentleman, or one
less likely to be engaged in a plot I
had never met.
Still my confidence was somewhat
shaken next morning when he showed signs of excitement and hurrying
over his breakfast called a cab and
drove straight to the office of Ky-
noch and Cumberland, the agents of
the Ordnance firm; and after remaining there two hours emerged with
what looked like a roll of plans and
drove to Lloyds. My curiosity was
now fairly aroused and my thoughts
turned instinctively to torpedoes. Appearances might be deceitful after all
and my mild-mannered gentleman a
dangerous conspirator.
On emerging from Lloyds he drove
rapidly to Waterloo station, and from
a safe vantage ground, I heard him
book for Southampton. And now for
the first time I began to have strong
misgivings. Was I only a young
green-horn after all? Was I going
to be tricked by a venerable and apparently artless old gentleman? Here
upon the platform was M. Collinski's
luggage consisting of two large
trunks, and sundry valises, and wraps,
in charge of two sturdy men I had
not seen before. It looked as if his
destination were further than Southampton. If so I had been fairly outmanoeuvred. How was I to follow?
Possibly it meant a sea voyage and
I had nothing but what I stood up
in. However M. Reval's instructions
were definite, and positive. "Do not
lose sight of him until he crosses thc
Russian frontier," and I would not
if it could be helped. Hastily purchasing a ticket for Southampton I
scribbled the following telegram to
M. Reval:
"M. C. suddenly started for Southampton. Am following. Wire funds
to Parr's Bank."
The result was that I found myself,
the same afternoon, on board the
"Orinoco," with a hurriedly purchased
wardrobe, one thousand pounds in
cash, and a saloon passage to Rio
Janeiro, for that was M. Collinski's
destination.
I had plenty of time to think during
the next three weeks, but my reflections led to little result.
It baffled my skill to find out what
could be the object of a voyage to
South America of all places.
I could trace no possible connection
between Brazil and a rebellion in
Warsovia. It would be equally impossible to get financial support or
arms; and moral support was out of
the question from a country which
had no influence whatever in European politics, and was hopelessly involved in indebtedness to London and
Paris. When, therefore, we landed in
Rio, in the last week in May, I still
had everything to learn.
M. Collinski evidently had letters
of introduction to a firm of shippers,
as well as letters of credit to a branch
of Coutt's Bank, for these were the
only two places he visited in the city.
Not one public man did he interview, and no one called upon him.
This did not look like conspiracy and
I was only more mystified than ever
when, on the third day after his arrival, he re-shipped on a coasting
steamer for Gurupa, a small port at
the mouth of the Amazon. This
meant a voyage of 2,000 miles and
occupied ten days.
By making a further use of the
most potent argument known in mundane affairs, I was able to ship in
another disguise altogether, as purser.
During this trip M. Collinski spent
most of his time in the small saloon,
as the heat on deck was intense, especially as we neared the equatorial
line, which crosses the delta of the
Amazon. I noticed that his attention
was divided between the roll of plans,
to which I have already referred, and
an illustrated work on the flora of
the tropics. I was not, however, to
be taken in by so palpable a device,
as I knew that M. Collinkski could
only be indulging in a little literary
recreation.
Great was my surprise to discover
one day, quite accidentally, that the
largest of his plans was a map of
Northern Brazil, showing the course
of the Amazon with all its tributaries, and that the other plans simply
showed sections of the country
through which it passed, upon a larger
scale. I was more than ever puzzled. What connection could there
be between a firm of ordnance manufacturers and the water-shed of the
Amazon? or between this land of alternating swamps, and dank tropical
vegetation, and the far-away kingdom of Warsovia, with its impending rebellion?
I began to realize also that the
undertaking, on which I had entered,
with such a light heart might be beyond my powers, for while I might
plod on in the footsteps of M. Collinski, and faithfully report what I
saw, I had now travelled seven thousand miles on his track, without gaining the slightest clue as to what his
motives might be, and this did not
augur well for my ultimate success.
Somewhat discouraged I sat pondering on my apparent failure in the
little, miserable inn at Gurupa, wondering what the next move would be,
when the captain of the vessel, which
had brought us from Rio, acting on
my instructions, came to inform me
that the old gentleman who had accompanied us had just hired a small
steamer from his Company, to make
a trip, more than 1,000 miles up the
Amazon, and its tributary, the Rio
Negro.
This was news indeed, for the journey would be through the most swam
py and pestilent country, travel
by this mighty river; which, altho
alternating with fertile plateaux
but sparsely inhabited. Whilst .
escapade seemed to me more ql
otic than ever, I had gone too

servants, whom he had brought

P. M. Beachcroft, quoting the dictum
that a young man married is "a firebrand, bound over to keep the peace,"
urged that matrimony was an institution approved by the verdict of the
past, and necessary to obtain the verdict of posterity. "Rowland Grey"
told a story of a Frenchman who attended the funeral of his mother-in-
law in the deepest mourning, but expressed his emotions in one word,

Women's Prospects.

fistion of the brain through social

Innocent Pleasures Allowable on
Sunday.
The Archbishop of York, in course
of a special address on Sunday observance, delivered at York, urged
the bounden duty of members of a
Christian household to attend at least
one service at a place of worship, and
the desirability of prayerful study of
the Bible at home, remarking that
knowledge of the Holy Scriptures
even amongst tens of thousands who
went to church was very limited.
There was no reason, he added, why
the remaining hours of the day should
not be occupied in innocent pleasures
which we were able to enjoy with a
quiet conscience, and which did not
offend the susceptibilities of others.

The Increase of Crime.
t'he official statistics of crime and

have just been published, and the

flisquieting. The number of minor
bnces—not including Police Court
les—which in 1835 was 114,000, and
I1875, 300,000, had risen in 1905 to
looo, or 133 per 10,000 inhabitants.

The Dangers of Coal Dust in Mines.
The Home Office have now issued
the report of Messrs. Bain and Atkinson, two of His Majesty's Inspectors of Mines, regarding the explosion at the Wingate Grange Colliery,
Durham, on October 14th, when 24
lives were lost. The Inspectors express the opinion: "We think that
coal mines cannot be said to be reasonably safe so long as their main
avenues constantly contain materials
capable of producing a violent explosion in the shape of coal dust and
impure air. Coal mines are becoming
deeper and drier, and larger areas are
being worked from a pair of shafts,
and unless some steps are taken to
mitigate the danger of coal dust, explosions exceeding in loss of life any
hitherto recorded will probably take
place."
Wireless Telephony.
lome time ago we predicted that
1 Navy would be the first to make
pless telephony practicable.   This
diction  is  already  justified.    For

Mr. Henry Peck—Huh! All this
talk about the Bible being an inspired book seems to me rank nonsense.
Mrs. Henry Peck—Well, I think it
is inspired.
Mr. Henry Peck—But, my dear, you
shouldn't be over-credulous in matters of this sort. Can you cite just
one passage in the Bible which you
know to be, beyond any possibility of
a doubt, the direct result of divine inspiration?
Mrs. Henry Peck—Yes, I can.
Mr. Henry Peck—Be careful, now.
Don't be hasty and commit yourself
before you are sure. But if you are
convinced that the one you have in

The charm of an artistic home depends upon the arrangement
of its lighting facilities.
Electric Lights—really artistic fixtures—will do much to render
a beautiful interior even more beautiful.
While, VICE VERSA, POOR lighting arrangements will mar
the beauty of the most magnificent home.
It's a subject worthy of serious consideration—and we wish
you would let US help you.

Vancouver Notes.
Some weeks ago mention was made
in this department of the crying need
for some kind of an association which
would unify and correct the abuses
that have crept into the local real
estate business. With the formation
of the Vancouver Realty Listing Association the initial step has been
taken in that direction. The membership of the new organization is principally confined to the realty men of
the east end of the city, some dozen
firms being represented. Though only
in existence a few weeks, and as yet
in its experimental stage, E. H.
Roome, one of the directors, is most
optimistic as to its possibilities. The
Association has a paid secretary and
stenographer, and each morning there
is delivered to every member a printed slip with description of properties
listed. Should a sale be made by any
member the secretary at once notifies
each office. A client in listing exclusively with one broker in this way
gets the working powers of the whole
Association, and whatever broker sells
knows he can deliver the goods* This
inability of making deliveries by brokers has been the cause of endless
trouble, and the new association is
apparently working along excellent
lines in systematizing the business.
G. Peeke, the energetic secretary, who
made possible the work of the organization is hopeful that in time the association will find itself strong enough
to cover the whole city. That something along these lines has been
needed has been expressed more than
once in correspondence to the local
papers, the efforts of Mr. S. P. Ponton being largely used to this end.
In an interview he said; "While the
real estate men of Vancouver exercise
a great force in the aggregate, it is
nothing to the mighty power they
would wield by united effort under
organization. As I have time and
again pointed out the business is in a
more or less chaotic condition, conducted with looseness that involves a
terrible waste of time, energy and
substance on the part of almost every
agent, and discredits him with many
who should become his permanent
and loyal clients. Any organization
that is conducted along business lines
will do much to upbuild Vancouver
and help the work of the real estate
dealer. The directors of the new association are W. A. Rutherford,
chairman; J. F. Luno, treasurer; A.
J. Michie, A. Tipping and E* H.
Roome. Within two weeks of its being in existence "over $50,000 worth of
realty was sold that had been listed
by members of the association.
March was a record month for the
British Columbia Permanent Loan
& Savings Company, as the directors
announce that 86 loans, amounting to
$128,000, were granted. These loans
are almost all intended for the purpose of building homes, in which it
will be seen the part this company
is playing in providing for the increased population of Canada, as the
money was disbursed from Vancouver
on the Pacific to Sydney on the Atlantic.
Ladies interested in the proper care
of the hands are invited to call at
Bowes' Drug Store for a sample of
Buttermilk Toilet Lotion. This lotion has a wide reputation as a cosmetic, readily healing chaps and soreness induced by weather changes.
NOTICE is hereby given that, 30
days after date I intend to apply to
the Honorable the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works for special license to cut and carry away timber from the following described
lands, situate on Iron Creek on the
West Arm of Quatsino Sound, Rupert District, Vancouver Island:
Commencing at a post marked E. J.
