SUPPRESSING THE NEWS
The  Week   has   on   several  occasions
A'oiced public opinion in complaining of
the manner in which the Victoria Dailies
systematically   suppress   important   neAvs
items.    This complaint has reached The
Week at different times from many quarters and some persons have professed to
see in the peculiar policy adopted some
feature of a community of interests between the papers and corporations whose
purposes might be served by withholding
from the public important information.
The Week does not share this vieAV, but
is   not   surprised   that   the   unfortunate
policy of the papers in question should engender it.    Take the case of Kesserich v.
The Wellington Colliery (.''ompany, whieh
involved  a  claim   of  $8,000  by a  poor
widow as monetary compensation for thc
loss of her husband in the Extension explosion.    This case was of great public
interest;   it occupied two Aveeks in the
bearing;   a number of expert Avitnesses
Avere called, and the Avhole subject of colliery explosions, one of vital importance
to a milling community came under review.    In addition   the   attitude   of the
management of the mine and of important
Government officials Avas in question, and
yet, beyond an occasional note to the effect
:hat the trial Avas progressing, no facts Avere
>'iven to the public, and when the case Avas
finally decided in favour of the Colliery
Company  the local press dismissed the
matter in a notice of six lines.    Eight
years ago, Avhen the greatest compensation
i-ase of tliis kind whicli has been heard in
ho Province of British Columbia Avas bc-
I'ore the Assize Court in Nelson, the Nelson Daily News gave practically a verbatim report of the evidence, occupying al
some times as much as two Avhole pages pe
lay.   The result Avas that the people of
[the Kootenay, and hundreds on the outside, were furnished with a splendid report
md obtained a liberal education on a sub-
feet which  effects  many   interests,   and
vvhich is of special importance because it
io keenly affects the well-being of the poor
[vidows and orphans avIio are left to lament
hese great mining catastrophes, often in
ixtreme poverty.   It would be interesting
o know why the Victoria papers practic-
lly ignored so important a case, especially
vhen their policy could only bo construed
I is favouring the defendant company.
■There is another matter on which the Vienna papers have been practically silent,
ind that is the Chinese Investigation at
ancouver. It is easy to understand why
The Times has nothing to say, but how can
he Colonist be excused for publishing only
i few occasional paragraphs, some days
liothing at all, when an investigation is bong conducted whicii furnishes the Van-
louver papers Avith matter running to several pages a day and which involves in a
Inost intimate sense the character and eon-
uct of some of the leading men in the
'rovince and beyond question the very
[tatua of the Liberal party . The Colonist
ian excuse itself for refraining from coin-
Inent while the matter is ''sub judice"; it
tannot excuse itself for deliberately Avith-
lolding the news of what is transpiring,
ind the only feasible explanation is that
he editor of the Colonist is unwilling to
lissist in uncovering the "feet of clay"
Ivhich his former idol and political leader
s found to possess. There is one other
natter Avhich mav or may not be fairly
placed in this category; it is the Temple-
Inan-Jardine incident. Everybody in Vic-
oria, and thousands of people throughout
he Dominion, kneAV at the time Avhat happened in the upper room at the Post Office
iome months ago. The local papers, perhaps out of consideration for the discredit-
id minister, suppressed the item.   So far,
so good, but where is the consistency of
their policy, when after the lapse of several
months they de\'ote columns to retailing
every feature of the incident when the
member for Esquimalt brings the matter
ii]) in the House . The Week is only voicing a very general public opinion when it
declares that the local papers systematically suppress important neAvs and at the
present moment if it were not for the enterprise of tho Vancouver Province and
the Vancouver World in selling their afternoon papers daily on the streets of Victoria, Ave should know practically nothing
of the proceedings in one of the most important enquiries ever held in British
Columbia.   AVhat is the true explanation ?
A DIRTY BUSINESS
There is an old saying, "Truth Avill
out," ancl the proceedings in the local
Legislature and elseAvhere during the present week certainly emphasize the statement. Goaded to desperation by the
illegal and vindictive action of the organizer of the Liberal party in Esquimalt—
an action which is all the more despicable
if what Mr. Jardine says about tlieir personal relations is true—the member for
Esquimalt has given his version of the circumstances Avhich led up to the "scrap"
in the Post Office building, and to his
desertion of the Liberal party. That
some importance is attached to Mr. Jar-
dino's deliverance is evidenced by the fact
that Avith all speed Mr. John Oliver, the
Cincinnatus of Delta and the leader of the
Liberal party in British Columbia, Avas
rushed doAvn to a public meeting at Esquimalt to give his own and the Honourable
William Templeman's version of the matter. Furthermore, the latter gentleman
considered it a matter of such importance
that he gave a long i liter vieAV to a press
representative at OttaAva, in order, if possible, to discount the effect of Mr. J aril ine's impassioned attack. The Week has
neither space nor inclination to deal at any
length with so nauseous a subject. Simmered doAvn into a feAV Avords it amounts
to this: that a decent, hard-Avorking
painter Avas bitten by the bug of political
ambition and like too many decent men
sacrificed his business to his politics. Although tolerated by his party because he
could Avin votes he was only tolerated, and
he found Avhat many other politicians haA-e
found, that while he Avas good enough to
serve the purposes of his party he Avas not
good enough to receive the light hand of
fellowship. This naturally rankled and
when he considered that he had been unfairly treated in connection with his election expenses it is easy to understand that
his feeling toward thc Hon. William Teni-
pleman aviis anything but cordial. Hence
the quarrel and personal chastisement of
that gentleman. The answer of Mr. Templeman to all this is that at the very moment Avhen the assault took place he Avas
taking Mr. Jardine to task for "graft" in
that the member for Esquimalt having
been allotted a painting contract at the
Quarantine Station fo thc amount of
$2,000 had deliberately done $8,000 worth
of painting and collected fhe money. The
Week certainly holds no brief for Mr. Jardine, but if this is the Avorst that Mr.
Templeman can say about him the laugh
Avill not be on the member for Esquimalt.
If Mr. Templeman had been able to say
that Mr. Jardine had collected $8,000 for
$2,000 worth of work the position would
have been different. There is no suggestion so far that the Avork was not actually
done; the complaint is that more aviis done
than Avas ordered. Once on a time the
Hon. William frankly declared on a public
platform that he Avas "no politician."
This matter has certainly proved it.   For
Avhat everybody is iioav asking is Avhy, if
Mr. Jardine had been guilty of an enormous crime, no complaint Avas made at the
time. The money Avas paid and Mr. Jardine as member received the full support
of the Liberal party including that of the
Hon. AVilliam Templeman and Air. Ralph
Smith. No doubt Mr. Jardine's political
career is ended, as that of the Hon. AVilliam Templeman Avas ended when his oavii
felloAV citizens turned him doAvn at the last
Federal election. Since then, his excursion to the North has been disastrous from
a political standpoint, and so Avell does he
knoAV that he could not again secure a
nomination there that he has already laid
his plans for another attempt in A'ictoria.
His chances of success are not enhanced
by the proceedings of the last feAV Aveeks
in A'ancouver and Victoria.
last, anything that might endanger our
status as a part of the British Empire,
and that Ave fear such a treaty as proposed
might easily prove to be the entering of a
Avedge that Avould eventually result in a
separation of our interests from those of
the Motherland.
"That we hereby record the unalterable
opposition of this board to the proposed
reciprocity treaty wi th the United States, .
Avhich treaty Avould involve the country in
dangers not yet fully realized, and Ave consider that the Go\'crnment should first ascertain the opinion of the Avhole country
on this question, and receive a definite
mandate thereon before committing it to a
change so revolutionary as this reversal of
its entire policy, threatening not only the
trade but also the more vital interests of
Canada as a nation."
RECIPROCITY AGREEMENT
Now that the proposed Reciprocity
Agreement with the United States has
been generally canvassed it is possible to
express an opinion based upon more careful consideration and reflection than was
possible at the time of the last issue of
The AVeek. The brief adverse opinion
then expressed has been strengthened by
the general chorus of condemnation both
in Canada and the Motherland. So far as
British Columbia is concerned the proposed Agreement, if ratified, Avill inflict
serious injuries on our trade. It Avill flood
the market with American fruit, poultry
and eggs, and though this might not be an
unmixed evil if prices Avere substantially
reduced, there is little reason to hope that
the produce combine Avhich so effectively
maintains prices at present Avill abandon
its policy. In any event the consequences
to land settlement cannot fail to be serious;
at the present moment it is difficult enough
with our limited market to find a profitable
outlet for farm produce in so sparsely
settled a Province. The one thing which
British Columbia needs is increased population; anything Avhich curtails settlement
will check this. Free lumber will injure
British Columbia because, as is Avell known
to all Avho have studied the question, the
removal of the duty will enable American
mills to monopolize the Prairie trade, and
that is the biggest market for British
Columbia lumber. The greatest objection,
however, Avhich The AVeek has to the Reciprocity Agreement is that it endorses a
retrograde policy. It is a return to a condition of affairs which Avas discussed more
than tAventy years ago when the Toronto
gang, whieh has fattened on its exploitation of the Laurier Government aviis a
unit in favour, not merely of Reciprocity
with the United States, but of Annexation.
The AVeek does not for a moment question
the sincerity of Mr. Fielding and Mr.
Paterson; neither can it, hoAvever, forget
that both Avere Secessionists, and in this
matter it does not trust their judgment.
.It regards the Reciprocity Agreement as a
blow at British Preference and at Imperial
sentiment, and in expressing this opinion
it cannot do better than quote the series of
Resolutions passed at a recent meeting of
the .Montreal Board of Trade, which seem
fo go to the very root of the matter and
which, unless The AA'eek is greatly mistaken, will be found to voice Canadian
sentiment:
"Resolved that Ave, the members of the
Montreal Board of Trade, in annual meeting assembled, believe that the sober sense
of tho country as a Avhole is against any
change in the trade policy under whicii
Canada has groAvn to her present admitted
state of prosperity.
"That avc consider it to be the bounden
duty of every Canadian to resist to the
THE COAL MINES ACT
The Premier as Minister of Mines is to
be congratulated on the admirable measure
whicii is now before the House and on the
able anil exhaustive speech in Avhich he introduced it. It is not a little surprising
that a man of so many activities and responsibilities should have been able to acquaint himself to such a remarkable extent
with the technicalities of mining and the
details of the Bill. The AVeek with some
practical knowledge of the subject has no
hesitation in saying that Avhen this Bill
becomes law, British Columbia Avill have
the best coal mining hnvs in the Avorld.
Not perfect, but probably as perfect as
conditions A\'ill admit of. The Bill is conceived mainly in the interest of the miner
and for his protection, and if honestly
lived up to will tend greatly to minimise
the dangers of this most hazardous calling.
The British Columbia Government has
been almost a pioneer in the establishment
of rescue stations and rescue apparatus,
and it is to be hoped that the Minister
Avill see his Avay to comply with the request
of the Operators' Delegation and assist in
the establishment of central stations for
the supply of oxygen, unless, whicii Avould
be preferable, it is feasible to make such
arrangements through a local firm. The
AA'eek strongly endorses the attitude of the
Government with reference to the appointment of sub-inspectors; the suggestion of
the Labour members that these very valuable public servants should be elected by a
vote of the miners Avould assuredly not
work out Avell in practice. Such a method
Avould not tend to efficiency and would
weaken the protection Avhich the Government is so anxious to extend. There is
one important matter which is bound to be
dealt with sooner or later and which it
would have been well to have settled at the
present moment; that is the separation of
the Goal ..Alines Department from the Min-
eralogical. (.'oal mining is developing at
such a pace that the time has come when
it should have a Departmental head of its
own. Coal mining has little in common
with metalliferous mining and the control
of both, subject ahvays to the Department,
should be vested in a specialist. The
British Government has adopted this
course by appointing Professor Redmayne,
recently of the Birmingham University,
as Chief Inspector, but in reality as advisor and controller, in no instance is
there any connection between the Coal
milling and Mineralogical Departments;
they are absolutely separate with separate
heads, and both branches of mi important
industry Avould benefit if the system Avere
adopted here. On the whole, hoAvever,
there can be nothing but praise for an admirable measure, and for the exceptionally
able manlier in which it was expounded
by the Premier. THE WEEK, SATUKDAY, EEBKUAKY 4, 1911
At The Street
Corner
 Cy TUB LOUNQER 	
I suppose that the vast majority
of my readers have been at some
period of their lives more or less devoted students of the "Bard of Avon," but there is one play with which
for some reason or other the public
is not very familiar, though to my
mind the characters therein depicted
are amongst the most striking to be
found in the Avhole collection. I refer to "Cymbeline," and I would recommend it to the notice of those
avIio care to dip once more into the
Avaters of Shakespearean literature.
Posthumus, a Roman soldier in
Britain, has a sweetheart in Rome
and he entrusts his so-called friend
Iachimo with a message to her. Iach-
irno, fancying himself a lady-killer
wagers Posthumus that the lady, Imogen, is not on a par with Caesar's
Avife and on his arrival in the Capital makes love to her. Being scornfully repulsed and feeling that his
"amour propre" demands that he
shall take back proofs, however
false, of the success of his adventure, he hides himself in a chest in
Imogen's apartments and taking advantage of her unconscious state
whilst asleep discovers some birthmarks on her bosom, the modern
version is a mole on the knee. Armed
with these proofs he goes back to
Britain to confound the deceived
hero.
But someone will say, "What on
earth is the Lounger going through
all this rigmarole for? What has it
got to do with the Street Corner?"
My friends, there are some things
which have to be approached in a
circuitous manner, and I will content
myself by saying in explanation just
this and nothing more. A dress re-
hersal of Act II. Scene II. was held
in a house in Victoria West during
the latter part of last week, the same
being conducted under more modern
conditions and, presumably, as a direct result of the present insane policy of non-segregation.
I can't help thinking that if the
authorities at Ottawa had been cognisant of the desperate poverty which
appears to prevail at the Victoria
Law Courts, they Avould have withheld their order concerning the flying of flags on all public buildings
from sunrise to sunset, until such
time had elapsed as might be necessary to obtain by popular subscription a flag for the said building. At
present there hangs above the edifice
sacred to thc cause of Justice a ragged piece of cheese-cloth; at least it
looks like cheese-cloth. On one side,
the side which is not visible from the
upper part of Bastion Street it is a
dirty white; on the other there is a
faint representation of the Union
Jack; perhaps it wiuld be more correct to say that the idea conveyed
to the mind by the eye is that it is
supposed to be a Union Jack. I
should not like to sAvear to it. In
the name of all that is good and
beautiful let us have a flag that is a
flag and not a ragged, dirty piece of
cloth that the average boy would be
ashamed to be seen dead in the street
with on the 24th of May. It is an
insult to the Union Jack; it is an
insult to Justice, and it is a crying
disgrace to Victoria as a whole and
to some individual in particular that
the Law Courts of the Capital of a
Province like British Columbia
should have such a sorry emblem of
what is our national pride flaunting
its shabby condition and cheap material before the eyes of our numerous visitors.
*   *   *
It has been suggested to me that
the citizens of Victoria would do well
to see to it that there was some committee formed which Avould have the
privilege of considering the various
improvements about to be made
from an architectural point of view.
It is more or less a truism that the
general utility man is not blessed
with an eye for the beautiful, and it
is   in   consequence   of   this   that   we
fulfil the purpose for whicli they were
erected, but which entirely fail to
please the eye because use and not
beauty was the one and only idea
which the builder's mind Avas capable
of holding. There is plenty of Art
in Victoria, spelt with a capital "A"
too. Why cannot representatives
from the Architects' Association,
from the various Fine Arts Clubs
and from the City form a critical
committee which would be capable of
passing upon proposed improvements
from the artistic point of view? I am
given to understand that the plans
for the neAV public convenience to be
erected at the corner of the Causeway call for an eye-sore. There is
absolutely no reason why a building
of this description should not be
made as pleasing to the eye as possible. In Seattle they have solved
this particular problem by erecting a
structure which may be styled magnificent in the central part of the
town. However, in Victoria we are
all too much inclined to do things in
a hurry, leaving details to anyone
avIio will take the trouble to concern
himself with them. In this way
slums and sky-line disfigurements are
created sufficient to damn any city
with pretensions to be called "The
Beautiful."
Amongst the blind the one-eyed
man is king and a fair informant
tells me that this is the analogy on
which Superior Street Avas so called.
It appears that there was a time
when this main thoroughfare from
the City to the Outer Wharf was
really the best of a bad lot and with
the advent of the car tracks became
of such vast importance and shone
with such a lustrous halo that a
grateful neighborhood conferred upon it the Order of the Name. Alas,
the street has done nothing since that
time to deserve its proud distinction
and in the same way in which a
good man when he does go Avrong
goes very, very Avrong, Superior
Street, so far from being the joy of
the Bay has become its despair.
*   *   *
Another proof of the universality
with whicli The Week is read has
come to hand since the last issue. I
have been accused of lack of geographical education because I asserted
that Lake Superior was the largest
body of fresh water in the world,
and that it owed its name to that
fact. This statement has been
freely contradicted. I' would beg my
critics to study the folloAving figures
which are taken from the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Lake Superior is
350 miles long by 100 miles wide.
Michigan, Avhich comes next is 320
by 80 and Lake Baikal is 330 by 40.
If by any chance the authority quoted has omitted mention of a lake
larger than Superior, I am from Missouri and would like to be shown.
I understand that in my zeal to
protect the public consumer and to
assist a little in the present campaign
for cheaper coal I have unwittingly
trodden on the corns of some firms
who are engaged in the trade. A
reference was made in a more or less
facetious paragraph in my last week's
contribution to wet and dry sacks
and short Aveight. Needless to say
this could not possibly apply to the
first-class firms avIio advertise in The
Week. I sincerely hope that the
base suspicion is foundationless in
any event and in justice to the retail dealers I think I ought to say
that everybody who has studied the
subject knows where the excessive
profit is made and that it is not in
their  department.
*   *   *
I should very much like to sec a
law similar to the one in operation
in France become effective throughout the whole world, having of
course particular reference to Victoria. That is a stamp tax on every
advertisement appearing on public
streets. FeAV things look so disfiguring as staring posters announcing
the excellent qualities of somebody's
soap, or another person's soup or yet
a third party's cigarettes and tobacco.
To say nothing of all the extravagant
theatrical  notices which appear with

It is said that the lot of those

But it is the same throughout the

MUSIC
AND   THE   STAGE
The Beauty Spot
The   veteran    comedian   Jefferson
Id'Angelis  was  featured    at  Victoria
■Theatre on    Monday    night    in    an
[American  Musical  Comedy    entitled
■"The Beauty Spot."    Of thc comedy
■not much can be said except that it

Jto Victoria two    very    pretty   girls,

he  latter  had  a  sweet  little  voice
land was coquetry and archness    in-
jcarnate.    Of course D'Angelis was a
[host in himself; he is the most polished  and gentlemanly comedian  on
jthe stage.    When he dresses as an
jfficer it requires  no  stretch of the
|iniagination   to   figure   hSm   as -not
ilaying but living    the    part.     His
nuips and cranks are  different from
|those of any other comedian and are
lelivered Avith  an unction    which  is
peculiarly his own.    Of a number of
clever  songs  thc "Crazy"  song was
decidedly the funniest.    The. Beauty
spot, a mole on a lady's knee, fur-
lushed  thc  theme for a lot of silly
lionsense  and  for  a  display of that
peculiar turn  of ingenuity in which
l\mcrican dramatists seem to delight.

Silver Threads
It is somewhat difficult to decide in
vhat category the above   mentioned
lilay should be placed.    In places it
Ivas decidedly melodramatic; in others  it  Avas  drama  pure  and  simple,
whilst  there  was  a   strong vein  of
lomedy running all    through.     One
piling is certain; it was not a pastoral
play, although  it Avas  so  styled  on
[the   programme.     Its   obvious   "rail-ion d'etre" is to afford Mr. Richard
Jose an opportunity of displaying
liis almost unique contra-tenor voice
In the old songs  "which,   grip    the
licart."  The  voice  is Avonderful, but
Bn Tuesday night it must bc admitted  that Mr. Jose did  not do him-
lelf justice, singing   Avofully   out of
lime.    This was particularly notice-
Ible in the big song of the evening,
[Silver Threads Among   the   Gold."
Miss   Louise   Kent   as   Ruth   Laurie
Ircated the audience to a fine presen-
ment of emotional acting both in her
mart as the Prodigal Daughter and as
lhe famous Prima Donna.    Mr. John
|\.  Micsen  furnished  the  real mclo-
llramatic  note,  playing the high  society stage  villain  according to  the
popular conception of the part.    His
btagc  laugh,  if  nothing  else,  would
fiave    proclaimed    his    predilections.
Zomedy was supplied by Miss Edith
IM. Cooke, the Ncav England old maid
[with her oavii ideas of hell and lica-
|ven, and Mr. W. D. Stone, the persistent  and   finally   successful   suitor
Jfor the old maid's hand.   There was
la  very  fair-sized  house  and  though
|the applause was at no time vocifcr-
dus there was a general atmosphere
lof  contentment  at    the    production
■which evoked several complimentary
■remarks at the door.
The New Grand Theatre
There are three  star turns at the
Ipopular vaudeville  house  this  Aveek.
■ The Bcnto  Brothers arc exceptional
I equilibrists, their head to head ascent
[and descent of the ladder being one
[of the cleverest performances in this
line that I have seen.   Caine and Od-
Iom are great; the man possesses that
[dry, caustic wit which seems to come
lout spontaneously whilst his partner
responds  in   happy  vein  Avhat  time
I she ripples away on the piano. Miss
Hope Booth  & Co. have an original
sketch of no little nfferit, and one
which I commend to all my fellow
dramatic critics, lest they also entertain a "Little Blonde Lady" unawares. Miss Hardie Langdon is one
of those musical monologuists who
grow on you; that is to say that she
improves with each successive song
and her facial contortions are things
to dream about—if you like nightmare. Raymond & Hall are graceful
dancers and introduce some good
songs into their act, the lady appearing to especial advantage in her role
of a Dutch frau. Patrons of the New
Grand, and their name is legion, Avill
be interested to know that the theatre
is undergoing a thorough renovating
being redecorated from top to bottom, the boxes also being re-upholstered.
The Crystal Theatre
Venice was the setting for an excellent set of pictures at Mr. Jamieson's house during the early part of
the week. "Antonio Foscarini" was a
picturesque production and gave a
splendid idea of Venice itself and of
the manners and customs prevailing
there in the Middle Ages. The romantic story of the pursuit of Dr.
Crippen proved a lure to many, and
on Wednesday and Thursday evenings a crowded house Avitnesscd this
modern day drama of detective life.
Romano's Theatre
I do like those comfortable scats
in Messrs. Quagliotti's theatre. It is
a lazy generation and one that likes
to take its pleasures at its ease and
the gentlemen referred to have certainly catered to the public taste in
this respect. Historical, sentimental
and comic pictures have alternated
in due rotation, and but I Avould
like to make particular mention of
"The Italian Conspiracy" and "The
Rival Detectives" the latter being exceptionally amusing.
The Majestic Theatre
One of the most striking films that
I have ever seen on the screen was
that entitled "A Mexican Legend"
which appeared in Mr. Christie's
house on Monday and Tuesday. It
was a miracle picture and depicted
the Christ coming to the aid of His
followers when attacked by Indians.
The subject Avas treated with all rev-
erence and evidently made a great
impression on the spectators. "The
Funeral of Count Tolstoi" in the
middle of the Aveek was an impressive presentation. The latter class of
film is of a kind calculated to bring
the great ones of the earth into closer connection with the multitude
than the mere reading of the neAvs-
papers can effect.

On Thursday night.  Feb.  16, Mr.

On this occasion Mr. Turner will bc
assisted by Herr Max Steindel, avIio

Raul Pcriera, avIio made such a favourable impression recently as a
violinist. In addition to these two
virtuosos other talent is being
brought in for this concert and everything indicates that a really high-
class entertainment will be provided.
New Grand Theatre
Charming little Eva Mudge, avIio is
possibly better known in stageland as
"The Military Maid," comes to the
Grand on Monday with her new act
"At the Seashore," a protean act that
is all daintiness and class. Miss
Mudge is gifted with a strong, SAveet
singing voice and a voluminous wardrobe.
Edmund Sorakhan and Billy Lennox, two of the best known farceurs
of the American stage, arc on their
way with a rattling fast little farce
Avritten by themselves entitled "Doun-
ton's Substitute." The scene of their
act is laid in a theatrical booking
agency and thc title fairly suggests
the  line  of the fun  making.
A supporting act of great merit is
thc society effort of Holmes and Riley, avIio sing baritone and soprano.
Their numbers are operatic and semi-
classical. Mr. Holmes -will be seen
leading from thc orchestra, and singing his oavii numbers in that position.

The Story of an "Entente
Cordiale"
BY BOHEMIAN
Until an Englishman has attended
the annual banquet of the Deutsche
Verein he does not know that he is
born; and Avhen he has attended it he
is lucky to find himself still alive.
On Friday evening, Jan. 27th, I was
the honoured guest of the German
Club at the banquet which they gave
at The Empress Hotel, which accounts for the fact that the issue of
The Week published next day contained no reference to the function.
On this festive occasion one hundred Germans and one hundred Englishmen sat doAvn to enjoy the good
things provided by the caterers at
The Empress, and in the flowing
bowl and the pipe of peace to bury
all recollections of war-scares and
sensational newspaper articles. They
succeeded, at least that is my recollection of it, and I will here freely
admit that if the matter had to be
settled across the banquetting table,
the English would not be in it. As
a matter of fact they would be under
it, and their German friends very
much "on top."
The occasion Avas unique, in fact it
Avas great, and moreover, it was a
revelation. It Avas unique in that
Clive Phillips Wolley responded to
the toast of the navy. Never mind
what he said,, or what he and his
audience had to forget in order that
he might say it; the fact remains that
he responded and survived the ordeal
But I am getting away from my
story.
The most unique feature of a splen
did function Avas none other than the
august and impressive official who
presided over it, to wit, the Imperial
Consul, Herr Carl Loewenberg. It is
the first time I have had the honour
of meeting His Consulship; I hope it
will not be the last, for he is a
prince of good felloAvs and easily
the most terrific personage who has
occupied the head of the festive
board in the City of Victoria.
Imagine a handsome, well-built
man in the prime of life, dressed in
the attractive military trappings
which he is entitled to wear, not forgetting plenty of gold lace and medals, standing erect and with flashing
eye and a stentorian voice, calling to
order and controlling two hundred
enthusiastic and vociferous banqueters who were bent on celebrating the
fifty-second birthday Vrf H. il, *M.
The Kaiser and at the same, time testifying to the bond of amity which
must ever bind together the British
and the German people. But he did
it, and did it so well that whenever
that stentorian voice was raised and
the sabre which lay ready to his hand
came crashing on the tabic, the
storm became a calm, and it is no
exaggeration to say that you could
hear a pin drop.
In his control and direction of the
banquet Herr Consul Loewenberg illustrated thc discipline of the German'
people and the autocracy of the German Kaiser. And he did it under the
shadow of an admirable bust of his
Imperial Master which looked doAvn
on the festive scene and, no doubt,
would, if it could, have relaxed its
stern aspect and smiled.
Another unique aspect of this occasion was the splendid preparation
which had been made by those in
charge. Nothing was left to chance;
everything was foreseen and well arranged. The speakers, unlike so
many Canadian speakers, were thoroughly prepared and consequently
Avorth listening to. Never have I
heard a finer apostrophe of thc Kai
ser than that which fell from the
lips of Mr. Lins, who proposed the
toast of the evening. Even the Englishmen present, who have not always loved him, for once felt proud
that he Avas his mother's son.
Then the address of the President
of the Deutsche Verein, Herr Kos-
tenbader, was an admirable, concise
deliverance, and the reply of Mr.
Nesbit for the guests, witty and interesting, if somewhat too long. But
the speech of the evening Avas the
thoughtful, intellectual and sagacious
deliverance of Mr. Alvo von Alvens-
leben. When he rose to propose the
"Army and Navy," the night, or rather the morning, was wearing on. To
be precise it was about 2:30 a. m,, and
to this moment I have doubts Avhether thc audience fully appreciated the
profundity and thc significance of the
address.
Mr. Alvensleben lifted a subject
far above all commonplaces or after
dinner complimentary utterances, and
passing from the suggestion of trouble between England and Germany
elaborated the possibility of a real
"yellow peril," pointing out that the
true Armageddon Avould be a conflict
between the white and the yellow
races, and that all the great European powers would have . to stand
shoulder to shoulder when the tocsin
sounded. Certainly Mr. Alvensleben's
country is getting ready, for at the
present moment Germany has six
millions of men avIio have undergone
some degree of military training and
can bear arms whenever called on.
This is not the place to enlarge upon
so serious a topic, but I wish that
Mr, Alvensleben's address could have
been reported verbatim. Alas, at that
late hour even the neAvspaper men—
but that's another story.
I have only one kick to make, and
perhaps as a guest I have no right
to make it; but it is the first occasion of the kind of which I have any
knowledge, when a toast to the Press
has been omitted. I knoAV it is a
mere matter of form and a mere perfunctory compliment, which has its
origin in the desire to propitiate the
knights of the pen and ensure sympathetic treatment and careful editing in the reporting of the speeches.
No doubt, the Committee realised
that at the close of a German banquet such a compliment Avould be
quite superfluous, and the only reason
I mention it is that I felt quite sore
at being deprived of the opportunity
of "getting back" at Col. Wadmore,
who took advantage of the absence
of a Press toast to roast the newspapers for "manufacturing the German Avar scare in order to make a
few extra cents out of their sensational articles."
I only wanted to ask the Colonel
whether Lord Rosebery, Mr. Balfour
and Sir Charles Beresford were in
the conspiracy, and what business
they had to tell the Avorld that there
really was danger of a German in-
A'asion.    However, let that pass.
I cannot, however, allow another
"faux pas" of the gallant Colonel's
to pass so easily. In a moment of
exhilaration he presented the German's with a beautiful bouquet in
ascribing to them the credit for the
victory at Waterloo. This is thc first
time I have heard that "Bill Adams"
Avas a German.
And still the fun waxed fast and
furious; there Avere college songs of
an hilarious character, illustrated by
quaint original drawings in connection with whicii the versatile and indefatigable Lins again figured conspicuously. There Avas also a "non-
political" speech by Henry Behnsen
(avIio by the Avay fought through the
Franco-German campaign) whicii Avill
go doAvn to posterity as one of thc
ablest performances of the kind ever
successfully carried off at a strictly
non-political festive gathering. There
Avas also a little enlightenment for
the English guests on thc subject of
German customs, especially the time-
honoured one which compels a refractory member to mount his chair and
drain his "stein."
However, all things must come to
an end, even German banquets, and
Avhen at 3 a. m. thc honoured President announced that out of consideration for thc sleeping (?)  guests of

VICTORIA'S GREAT YEAR
Development Work Arranged for 1911
It does not require a very wise man
but merely one capable of reading the
signs of the times to predict a year
of unparalleled activity for Victoria in
the way of civic improvements and a
corresponding demand for labour.
Optimism is in the ascendant and it is
conceded on all hands that the close
of the current year will see the birth
of a renovated Victoria.
Asphalting
A million dollars is a large sum of
money, but it is the amount which
the City is prepared to spend on
asphalting certain specified roads.
This spells good pay to a great many
men, to say nothing of the fact that
such an undertaking will necessitate
the erection of additional asphalt
plants which will be of a permanent
character.
Sewerage
At the recent municipal elections a
by-law was passed by the ratepayers
in connection with a scheme for extending the present sewerage system.
This will mean that a sum in the
neighbourhood of $50,000 will be expended for the most part on labour
alone.
High  School
Though the public is aAvare that a
new High School is to be erected at
Ferinvood it has by no means grasped
the fact that this is a big undertaking. Much time, money and labour
will have to be expended on levelling
the property before the actual Avork
of building is commenced. When it is
realised that the estimated cost is in
the region of $300,000 it will be seen
that here again is another proof of
the advance which Victoria is making in tlie way of public improvements.
Waterworks
The continuance of the cold spell
is all that stands in thc way of the
inauguration of improvements in the
Avatcrworks system. These improvements arc in no Avay to be confounded with the Sooke Lake scheme, but
will consist in laying down hcav mains
and effecting other desirable alterations; $50,000 is expected to be the
cost in this department of the public
Avorks.
Street Widening
But after all what will tend to attract the attention of citizens more
than anything else is the general
scheme for beautifying the city by
Avidcning and extending certain
streets, by better provision for lighting, by the abolition of telephone
wires in the business section and by
the construction of the sea wall along
the Dallas Road. A commencement
has already been made on Fort street,
several owners of property there having moved back their frontages, following the Avorthy example of Mr.
Thos. Catterall, whilst neAv buildings
have been made to conform to the
new street line. The extension of
View street through to Government
has had to be delayed in order that
the property rights may be suitably
adjusted, but it is confidently expected that a few weeks will see the beginning of this most desirable undertaking. For the same reason it will
be some months before the Pandora
Avenue extension from Harrison
Street to Oak Bay Avenue gets under Avay, but it is included in this
year's   schedule.
Dallas Road Sea Wall
The Pacific Coast Construction
Company on an $80,000 contract has
in hand the Dallas Road sea Avail,
stretching from Menzies Street to
Montreal and a start on this important Avork will be made as soon
as weather conditions permit.    In ad
dition it is probable that a large sum
will be authorized by the Council for
foreshore  protection.
Underground Wires
The expense of putting the Avires
underground is estimated at $100,000
and this is the sum which the B. C.
Telephone Company is prepared to
expend, the greater portion of which
will be paid for labour.
Market Building
Last, but by no means least, something is going to be done to the
market building on Pandora Street,
ft is the general consensus of opinion
that this A'aluable piece of property
has lain idle long enough and the
proposed alterations will entail the
expenditure of some $30,000.
$2,000,000 Civic Expenditure
Such is the general scheme for the
current year's improvements and it
must be admitted that it is a very
comprehensive one. A couple of millions of dollars is a conservative estimate of the amount which the City
will provide for the A'arious undertakings, and Avhen to this is added
the money which will assuredly be
expended by private individuals in
residential and business sections it
will be more clearly realized that
. ictoria has more than turned the
corner and is now headed along the
home stretch.
New York Stock Market
January 31st, iqii,
It is evident that Washington is
feeling the pressure resultant from
the dragging business situation at a
time when Europe, and more especially Great Britain, is experiencing
almost unprecedented prosperity in
manufacturing and mercantile lines.
This is pretty clearly indicated from
advices from the capital, Avhich say
that corporate interests of the
United States, with combined capital
issues exceeding $43,000,000, are
closely watching developments, and
that their future welfare hinges in
greater degree than ever was known
before upon action in the near future
by either the President, Congress,
Supreme Court or Interstate Commerce Commission. It goes on to
say that the time is near Avhen most
of the questions pertaining to business, finance, railroads and corporations may be settled—some permanently, others temporarily—and progress halted by these problems may
be resumed.
Railroad gross earnings for the
first fortnight of January make a favorable comparison with last year, although not quite so pronounced as
for the previous few weeks. In every
part of the South, railroad business
continues to exhibit well maintained
activity, good increases still being
reported by all the leading systems,
while in the West and South-east
equally satisfactory conditions prevail, instances where 'Josses occur
being notably few and unimportant.
In other sections of the country,,
practically every road making weekly
returns makes more or less increase,
especially in agricultural sections, reflecting probably an active movement
of grain and other farm products.
Reports from Pittsburg state that
the entire iron and steel trade is feeling more hopeful, and expects continued, although possibly sIoav, improvement. Nothing approaching the conditions of 1906-7 is considered possible, but a steady gain in tonnage,
with maintenance of present prices, is
looked for. That there should be
any advances of moment is regarded
as quite unlikely. There has been a
progressive increase in daily bookings of finished steel orders this
month  as   compared  with  the  latter

(Continued from Page 6)
part of December, and after the steel
meetings of January nth there was a
marked increase. Railroad buying
has increased slightly, and has been
accompanied by more enquiry. The
settlement of the freight rate controversy may be discounted to a considerable extent, so that there will not
be the burst of buying when settled
that has been predicted in some quarters.
At New York money is a little
cheaper than it has been at any time
this year. Short time loans Avere
made as low as 3 1-4 per cent., while
call loans rule from 2 to 2 1-2 per
cent. The minor issues of new bonds
already made have been Avell received, while the sale of $60,000,000 New
York City 4 1-2 per cent, bonds has
been a splendid success, and shows
conclusively that money is forthcoming in plenty for the proper article in
investments.
The stock market has been dull
and steady during the month, but a
much better tone is apparent, and in
our opinion stocks should now be
bought for a good upturn in the near
future.
Local Market
In the local share market Alberta
Canadian and American Canadian
Oils have monopolized the bulk of
the month's business, and both have
advanced to new record figures.
Nothing fresh in the way of news
has been reported from the properties themselves, the advance in price
being due largely to manipulation
{which is made easy by the majority
pf stock being so closely held. The
heaviest holders of these shares are
prophesying much higher prices
shortly and are confident of striking
iii. Stocks of this class however, are
1 gamble, and can only be recom-
nended as such .
The announcement that the Royal
Collieries Co. have authorized the
ssue of $500,000 bonds to increase
:he capacity of their plant has caused
1 slump in these shares to the lowest
>oint yet recorded. We understand
ibout $350,000 of these bonds -will be
jiold shortly, and the proceeds will
liable the company to quadruple its
)resent output and will hasten the
.ayment of dividends. As no diffi-
:ulty is anticipated in the sale of
)onds, Ave fail to see Avhy stockhold-
rs are sacrificing their shares at
urrent quotations. For those having
little patience, Royals, in our opin-
011, are an excellent buy at market
figures.
The steady decline in Portland Ca-
lal Mining Co. shares culminated in
final break on the 27th    inst.    to
0 3-4, since which the price has
teadied, and current quotations show
slight advance at 13 1-2 cents. The
ompany, as outlined in a circular to
[tockholdcrs under date of January
(4th, are in need of $70,000 addition-
1 capital for mine equipment, and
*ropose issuing debentures for this
mount.    Wc presume the  company
Lull not have any difficulty in raising this amount, in which event the
hares should do better.
The present price of Red Cliffs
avours too much of manipulation to
nit us, and we would advise share-
oklers avIio have profits in sight to
like them.
We still continue to advise the pur-
hase of International Coal and Coke
t current prices.
Remarkable Slump in Rubber
Crude rubber is now down to $1.13
|he lowest yet.
The persistent slump in rubber is
llmost Avithout parallel in the history
Jf  commodity  markets.
Within nine months practically a
|lean $2 has been clipped off rubier in London. In April, 1910, at
■he height of the boom, prices rang-
ld from $3.02 to $3.10 a pound. By
)ctober, 1910, rubber had dropped
leloAV $2, and is now selling at $1.13,
Ipparently on its way to $1.
Good Times in the East.
A wire received here today from
Toronto said:—The big shops of the
llassey-Harris Company, on King
Itreet west, commenced running full
blast to-day. This step has been
made imperative because of the great
pressure of orders. Tavo thousand
men have been employed at the big
works lately, but notAvithstanding
overtime Avork was resorted to, the
staff was unable to bring the output
to the point Avhere it would satisfy
the demand. The firm accordingly
has taken on a large staff of men
for the night shift, and the factories
will be kept going night and day.

U. S. Exports for 1910
Details of the trade of the United
States with the various countries and
grand divisions of the Avorld have
just been completed by the bureau of
statistics, department of commerce
and labor. They show a slight increase in the exports to Europe, a
marked gain in those to North and
South America, an increased total to
Asia and Oceania in combination, and
a slight gain in the exports to Africa'.
To Europe the exports during the
calendar year 1910 were $1,193,000,
against $1,170,000 in 1909; to North
America, $426,000,000, against $345,-
000,000 in the preceding year; to
South America, $100,000,000, against
$83,000,000 in the preceding year; to
Asia and Oceania combined, $124,-
000,000, against $113,000,000 in the
preceding year, and to Africa, $21,-
000,000, against $17,000,000 in the preceding year.
On the import side the figures also
indicate a gain for each of the grand
divisions, except South Africa. From
Europe the imports were $790,000,-
000, against $767,000,000 in 1909;
from North America, $324,000,000,
against $278,000,000 in 1909; from
South America, $189,000,000, against
$193,000,000 in 1909; from Asia and
Oceania, $240,000,000, against $223,-
000,000 in 1909, and from Africa, $19,-
000,000 against $18,000,000 in 1909.
Weekly Trade Report
Bradstreet's and Dun's last circular says:.
Trade is quiet and tends to drag,
except in supplies for agricultural
interests, where spring requirements
must be met. Unseasonably mild
weather has tended to dull retail
trade, despite clearance sales, and
many markets report operations below expectations.
Except at some points where early
spring buyers are in evidence, the
jobbing trade has ruled quiet. Cotton
goods lead in activity. In wholesale
lines conservatism rules purchases
for  spring and  distant  positions.
In the metal industry, aside from a
cheerful feeling in iron and steel,
quiet prevails. Trade in wire products has expanded, helped by the
seasonable advent of seasonable demand.
Curtailment in the tanning industry
has brought firmer prices for sole
leather, but while shoe manufacturers at the West report more doing,
Eastern producers report buying only
for actual  needs.

NURSERY STOCK
Editor  "Thc  Week,"
Victoria, B. C:
Dear Sir,—The Public Press of this
Province without distinction of party
has always given this Department
efficient assistance, indeed, I have always held that Avithout the co-operation of thc Press wc could never have
uiforccd our Horticultural Regulations, which are proving of such immense advantage to the fruit-growing
industry of Britisli Columbia. I
would, therefore, . katctchshremfwyp
would, therefore, take thc liberty of
requesting you to grant me the use
if your valuable columns to direct
nursery stock to section 4 of the
lorticultural Regulations, which provides that certified invoices of all
shipments of nursery stock, trees and
plants, must be furnished to the Inspector nf Fruit Pests, at Vancouver, at the time when such shipments  are  delivered  for  inspection.
The reason for this is that Avhen a
case of goods arrives, Ave know by
the invoice Avhat it should contain,
and are prepared to check contents
over with the invoice. This greatly
expedites the business of inspection
and enables us to deal promptly with
1 importations.
It is clearly in the interests of the
importers that Ave should be able to
detect any mistake that may have
been made in shipping thc goods. All
this was carefully considered when
the Horticultural Rules Avere adopted,
but unfortunately many of the importers neglect to comply with this
Regulation.
I would therefore urge that a gen
eral observance of this rule be adopted.
The importations of nursery stock
are largely on the increase, and I am
just completing additional facilities
for inspection. Our staff will be doubled this year, so that Avhatever delays
may have occurred in the past may
be avoided in future, if the importers
comply with the regulation above referred to.
Thanking you for your assistance, I
am,
Yours faithfully,
THOMAS CUNNINGHAM,
Inspector of Fruit Pests.
THE LARGEST HOTEL
COURTESY TITLES
Victoria, Jan. 31st, 1911.
Sir,—Re a paragraph in Saturday's
issue of your valuable paper. It occurs to me there is a great deal of
misapprehension as to the proper
style and status of a Knight's wife
or  widow.
Admiral Sir George Bentham's widow (an old friend of mine at Canterbury) strongly objected to the title
"Lady Bcntham," and assured everyone that "Dame Bcntham" was the
correct appellation, and that, even,
she did not use, as she disliked the
Knightly title, "given as it is hoav to
rich brcAvers, or soap-makers, and
that ilk." Will you, therefore, please
make plain that a Knight's Avife or
Avidow must not be confounded with
Avivcs of baronets, barons, earls, etc.,
nor should they usurp the title "her
ladyship." f am frequently corrected
on this point, in a somewhat supercilious manner, and should be glad to
have "counsel's opinion" on the matter  in  question.
A COMMONER.
[Our correspondent is entirely in
the Avrong. ff she will consult
Whilakcr's Peerage she will find
many instances, including that of a

LOCAL OPTION NOTES
Although the advocates in this
Province of Local Option or the
Canada Temperance Act had announced that they intended almost
immediately to circulate petitions in
Victoria, New Westminster and the
Slocan, preliminary to making tests
of public opinion in these districts on
a proposal to substitute the Canada
Temperance Act for British Columbia's oavii workable license laAv, in
control of the liquor traffic, it is now
intimated that this intention has been
abandoned, and that Victoria and
New Westminster will be left alone
for the time being, "while a campaign
of education is more vigorously prosecuted." In the Slocan it is said to be
the intention to secure a Scott Act
vote during June or July. This time
is set, it is explained, as a large proportion of the district population will
then be in the hills, engaged in prospecting, and the Scott Act champions
will thereby obtain a better chance of
success. In other Avords the deliberate disfranchisement of a considerable
number of good citizens is contemplated, in order that a fictitious expression of public opinion may be
given the force of law, as against
the judgment and wishes of a majority. One cannot think very favorably of a cause whose champions
Avould stoop to advocacy of such principles and methods. The Executive
Committee of the Scott Act organisation for British Columbia meets again
in Vancouver during the second Aveek
of February.
*   *   *
In curious contrast with the attitude taken by the champions of Local Option throughout the Prairie
Provinces is the course now being
pursued by those other and more
Eastern temperance extremists Avhere
Local Option has for some time past
been in vogue, and where endeavors
are now being concentrated upon securing a substitution of the Scott
Act. Conversely, where the Scott
Act has been ostensibly in force—
no one will seriously assert that it is
really enforced or enforceable—they
are urging the substitution of Local
Option. Both methods to the disinterested observer Avould seem to bc
failures in the test of practical application; and from all parts of America each day brings fresh testimony
that the best practical results in the
correction of the evils arising
through immoderate use or abuse of
intoxicants are achieved through
drastic and strictly enforced license
and regulation laAv, of which the
British Columbia Act is everywhere
spoken of as a model of workability.
TOPICAL TRIFLES XIV.
(By  Onlooker)
Tiie day of the airman is at hand!
Noav that Mr. McCurdy can alight
in the Avater Avithout getting his feet
wet, the possibilities of the aeroplane are immense. What is to prevent a flight of American acroplanists
from alighting in the waters of the
Avest coast of Vancouver Island for
a fishing excursion, soaring away
again when the Rainbow slowly
makes her appearance? Here is a
chance for Vancouver Islanders to
distinguish themselves by building a
fleet of airships to prevent the possibility of such an untoward event.
Even the worm -will turn, and there
may be a halibut or tAvo worth saving yet.
Talking of fishing, incidentally, wc
have lately been told that grilse are
not salmon. Some people should
make more use of their encyclopaedia.
The Island Arts Club of Victoria
held an interesting meeting last
Aveek Avhen a paper Avas read on "The
Craft Movement in England." The
lecturer deplored the excessive demand for machine made articles
which is leading to the disappearance of the infinitely more beautiful
work of men's hands. The vice-
president of the club, avIio is ahvays
ready to promote the enjoyment of
the Arts Club meetings, adroitly provoked quite an animated discussion
as to the merits of steam versus
muscle. Steam, he argued, placed
certain reasonable luxuries within thc
reach of the workingman who Avould
otherwise be obliged to do without
them. The discussion also involved
the question of clothes, and Avhen it
was asked if the ladies would be content to return to the old fashion of
having but one black silk dress, one
only, but of course handmade, one
of the fair sex present very aptly
suggested that if steam Avere abolished and men Avere put to the task of
making their own suits, Avould it not
very soon come in again?
The only reply made by the lecturer to this remark Avhich caused
much laughter, was that their wives
could make them.
There seems to be a relic of barbaric days in the idea still latent in
men's breasts which suggests to them
that women ought to sit and scav and
wait upon their lords. It crops up
now and then, even in these days of
female emancipation. But when the
registered voters list is likely to sIioav
a preponderance of women over men
as it does in a large city not far
from Victoria, there must necessarily
have been a considerable upheaval in
the old order of things. Perhaps the
world will one day Avitness the return
of the matriarchal system under
whicii children took their names
from their mothers, women made all
the laws, and men merely did Avhat
they Avere told.
The discussion at the Arts Club
was continued at some length and
finally eA'olved into an argument as
to whether a brick ought to be perfectly square or Avhether it ought to
have a kink in it just for art's sake.
At this point the vice-president
"quit" and the Art Club betook itself
to coffee and cake, and to discuss
"graft movements in Victoria."
A very hearty vote of thanks was
accorded the lecturer of the evening,
who had prepared quite a clever paper, although some people were asking Avhat the "point" was. This was
discovered by an onlooker, and consists of the fact that the gentleman
is going to , but Ave shall wish
him every success if he does.
Isle of Wight
The King has sent presents to several of the staff at the Royal Naval
College, Osborne, in recognition of
their services to Prince Albert, who
last Aveek completed his tAvo years'
training at Osborne. Silver watches,
inscribed "G. R. V." surmounted by
a crown, have been received by
Chief Petty Officer Gilbert and Cadet Servant A. T. Perkis (Avhose brother previously acted as cadet servant to the Prince of Wales at Osborne), together with an autograph,
portrait of Prince Albert. Cadet Gunner J. H. Inston also received an autograph  portrait of the Prince.
Toronto Offices Unsanitary
Having indicted the city for maintaining a nuisance in the cells at central police station, the grand jury recently severely condemned the city
registry office as being overci'OAvded
and unsanitary, lacking in accommodation and subject to great lire
hazard. The jail and thc Mercer reformatory Avere also criticized.
C. N. R. to Yukon Territory
The Canadian Northern Railway
has been given poAver in a bill to construct a railway from Edmonton
through the Peace River to the Yukon territory. The construction starts
next year. Bonds arc on sale at present in London. The railway will
open tAventy million acres to homesteaders.
Wait Approval
The finance department of the
Dominion Government is awaiting
the approval by King George V. of
his effigy to be used on the hcav Canadian gold coins. As soon as this
is done and the dies are forwarded,
the coinage of gold Avill begin at the
Ottawa branch of the royal mint.
Typhoid Epidemic In Ottawa
The capital is threatened with a
serious outbreak of typhoid, there being at present thirty-six cases in the
city hospitals. Thc outbreak is attributed to a contaminated water
supply.
Stung
Willy—The other day I found mother crying over your book of poems.
His Sister's Fiance (delighted)—Oh, is
that so? (Aside.) Ah, what glory! What
fame awaits me! A man who can bring
tears to the eyes of such a flint-hearted
woman is certainly great and no mistake. (To Willy) She was really weeping,  Willy?
Willy—Yes, she said it nearly broke
her heart to think that a daughter of
hers was going to marry a fellow who
would write such rot as that.
