Cricket
The annual Cricket Tournament in Victoria is still
in progress  as  The  Week
goes to press, and the des-
I ination of the Challenge Cup remains in
floubt.   As was expected the Victoria and
'/ancouver teams are fighting for posses-
lion,  having  previously  vanquished   all
[-ther competitors.    No fewer than eight
lubs have taken part in the tournament,
including   Victoria,    Garrison , Albion,
/ancouver, Burrard, Vernon, Seattle and
Portland.    The first thing that strikes a
picket observer is that the quality of
he cricket improves each year.    Not so
bug ago it was a case of Victoria first
nd all the rest nowhere; then it became
I question of Victoria and Vancouver out-
listancing all competitors.    This experience has been repeated, but the gap is
essening, and individual players on other
|,ields have distinguished themselves in the
present tournament in a manner which is
uglily gratifying to all lovers of the game.
Moreover some of the second class teams
ave given the leaders a scare, especially
Hi the case of Vernon, Avhich got the first
.ve wickets of Victoria down for eighteen
mis, mid but for the splendid stand made
Meredith at a critical moment might
ffistually have defeated them on the day.
i'crnon is even yet an unknown quantity,
I for   after   scoring   only   fourteen   runs
gainst Portland on Monday, the team
■flicked up wonderfully, and finished up on
|_httrsday by scoring 131 against Victoria,
jnd batting the crack bowler of the tournament, Gooch, out of the field, compelling
she captain to replace him after twenty-
light had been scored against him for one
picket.   All  the  Clubs  engaged  won a
latch except the Garrison, but this is not
) say that the Work Point men should
gure at the bottom of the list, because
icy had harder matches, and moreover
tame within an ace of Avinning.   The only
:!ira which won two matches, not reckon-
1"' Victoria and Vancouver, was Burrard,
i.iul 1
I. ■■!■■
ts success was due to the splendid bat-
of Ehodes, who at the present time
one of the prettiest bats in the Province. He has good style and uses the
Il'illow with freedom. He scores rapidly
ind hits hard. He and Meredith are very
hitch alike at the crease and when they get
set"* a big score may safely be predicted.
tumour had it that Vancouver would be
Veaker than last year, but this was when
t was uncertain whether Eigby would
jilay. Rigby is playing, and playing almost if not quite as well as ever, and that
ineans everything for Vancouver, for Rig-
||iy at his best is the ablest all round
picketer at the Coast. Several men have
ilistinguished themselves in the earlier
'Hatches, notably Hebden Gillespie, who
'nade 143 for Vietoria against Portland,
|md but for over-anxiety when the last
nan caine in would probably have beaten
he record score for the Jubilee Grounds,
56, which was made by Cobbett two years
Ipgo. Among the batsmen, Meredith, Lawrence, Rhodes, Armitage, Gandy, Williams
ind Clarence have all distinguished tliem-
(clvcs. Some of them made phenomenal
(cores, others though figuring more modestly in the total, achieved a meritorious per-
■Moi-mancc by saving their side at a difficult
I'inic. Among the bowlers Gooch is easily
first, and well deserves the position.    He
Ils tireless, resourceful and scientific, can
[ireak both ways with equal ease, and can
ary both length and pace at will.    There
Iis only one way to play him and few of
[he batsmen have found it out, as his averse shows. Most of them play back, the
'ne or two who play him forward and take
the ball as soon as it leaves the ground,
EDITORIAL
have scored, and in some instances although few, forced a change of bowler.
Rigby, Thomas, York, Askey, Lawrence,
Peers, and Lawrence, have all proved
themselves artists with the ball, and after
watching the various teams it must be conceded that among club teams, either Victoria or Vancouver would make a creditable showing against any other Club team
in Canada, whilst a team selected from
all those taking part in the tournament
would not fall far short of an all-Canadian
team. It is a matter of the highest gratification that the finest of all games is
every year becoming more popular in this
country and in the United States. It is
not necessary to dwell on its value as a
disciplinarian and a moulder of character.
It stands for everything that is best, cleanest and most honourable in sport, it represents the highest outcome of civilized exercise, and is more closely allied with the
heroic deeds of our race than the casual
observer is apt to believe. If as its admirers contend, the love of cricket is a
fair test of the standard of life in any
civilized community, then such tournaments as that played in Victoria this week
are the best indication that the West is
advancing towards a goal which has long
been the aim of older communities, and
which is not determined solely by material considerations.
About
The Band.
There is trouble in local
musical ranks because the
management of the Fall.
Pair has not seen fit to engage the Fifth Regiment Band. A mass
of correspondence has been submitted to
The Week, with the request that the matter should be taken up editorially; this
may be done later, but The AVeek is unwilling to prejudice the success of the
Fair by making the matter a subject of
controversy at the present stage. It is the
more reluctant to do so because treating
the subject would involve the investigation of a Trades Union dispute, the allegation being that the Fifth Regiment
Band, a Canadian institution, is being antagonized for Union reasons by Wagner's
Seattle Band. Mr. Jas. E. Smart, the
Secretary of thc Fair, lias pointed out in
a brief letter to the press that his Committee has nothing to do with Union disputes and tliat they have been guided solely by business considerations in engaging
Wagner's Band. It seems that the wisest
thing is to let the matter rest here for the
present. If there is any question involved
affecting the giving of a preference to the
Canadian Band, or the support of a military organization on patriotic grounds, it
will not suffer by being reserved, the truest
patriotism lies in everyone putting his
shoulder to the wheel to make the Fair a
success, afterwards it wall be quite in order
tn discuss and settle once for all the merits
of a dispute which has been waged for
more than a year.
Four years ago the Laurier
Hudson's Bay Government rode to power
Railway. over the projected G. T. P.
Railway; signs are not
wanting that they will try to repeat the
experiment by the aid of the Hudson's
Bay Railway. This project has rapidly
come to thc front and it is not too much
to say that it has seized the imagination
of the Canadian people. Fifteen years
ago Hugh Sutherland, preaching Hudson's
Bay, was like the voice of one crying in
the wilderness.   None heeded and the majority of men voted him a visionary.   Today the ablest railway men in the Dominion have endorsed the scheme.   The Government are backing it and the question
of the moment is no longer shall there be
a railway, but which shall be the route
and how shall it be constructed.    On the
merits of the scheme nothing remains to
be said, even if there were not an acre of
productive land, a forest, or a mine, between Lake Winnipeg and Fort Churchill,
the line would be constructed as the natural outlet for the wheat fields of the,
West.    In the end nothing can defeat a
project which gives the shortest route to
Europe, and since close observation has
demonstrated that Hudson's Bay can be
navigated with safety at least four or five
months in the year, it is only a question
of a short time until the road must be
built which will only have to carry wheat
six hundred miles to Fort Churchill instead of two thousand six hundred miles
to Montreal; always remembering that the
two points are about equi-distant from
Liverpool.    The question of route is not
very material, and is one which the Engineers will decide inside of a year.    The
question of construction is more important.
The Government may grant a franchise
to some Company or it may decide to build
it as a national road.    Tlie latter would
undoubtedly be the better plan, because
the route is not likely to be a productive
one for hundreds of miles at its Eastern
end,  and any private Company undertaking to build it would either require
heavy subsidies or a franchise which would
entitle it to exact heavy toll.   On the other
hand, it is certain that such a road will
be a wheat highway to Europe and, as
such, would be used more or less by all
the great transcontinental  railway  companies.    It would be unfair to give any
one a preference over the others, in the
hands of the Government it should, if
properly administered, be a revenue producer, as the natural conditions would preclude a repetition of the jobbery which
has characterized the management of the
Intercolonial.    That the country is prepared to support a well considered proposal
for Government construction is evidenced
by the result of the Saskatchewan elections, whicli  although fought out by  a
Provincial Rights Party, was not fought
on the Provincial Rights issue, but on tho
Hudson's Bay Railway project.    The objection    that    Government    construction
would mean the creating of an opportunity
to raise an immense campaign fund for
the Federal Elections is hardly worthy of
consideration because such a fund will bo
raised in any event and it will come out
of the pockets of the men who have been
made rich by the present administration.
Canadian speculators havc not yet acquired
thc habit of being "practically" thankful
for expected blessings, they only return
thanks for mercies received.   The scheme
should  be considered  on   its merits  and
without any reference to its political affiliations.    It is the greatest and most momentous which has ever been submitted to
thc Canadian electorate.    Far more momentous  in   its  ultimate issue  than  that
whicli first brought Canada to the notice
of   (he   world,   the   construction   of   the
Oi P. R.
Major Dupont is an old
Major Dupont's alul highly respected citi-
Grievance. zen 0f Victoria.    Major
Dupont has a grievance,
which in an unwary moment he undertook
to air in the columns of the Colonist.   His
grievance is that a garden party given by
his wife was, without permission, reported
among the society items.   With all respect
for the gallant Major it must be admitted
that the complaint is querulous to say the
least of it.    If Major Dupont had not
lived iu Victoria so long he would have
known that if people give garden parties
they cannot prevent them from being reported.   It is one of the penalties of social
life.    Where has the Major been living
the last half century, not to know that for
the feminine world life would be deprived
of half its joy if there were no teacups,
and no gossip over the teacups.   Is Major
Dupont aware that feminine society lives
for these functions,  and  that  for  nine-
tenths of the dainty dames of Victoria, as
of other cities, days are counted by "garden parties."   The gallant Major objects
to being classed with the fishmonger and
the housemaid, but he cannot hide his light
under a bushel any more than they, and
in this age of democracy and publicity, if
he will give garden parties he cannot avoid
the society columns of the newspapers
But no one will regret that Major Dupont
saw fit to write to the papers; he is always
amusing and sometimes interesting.    As
one of the venerable relics of a bygone
age Victoria is proud of him, oven if he
occasionally allows himself a little adjectival freedom as when recently dubbing his
own friend and fellow citizen Mr. Angus,
"garulous,"  or when suggesting an infantile punishment for reckless automobile
driving.    These, however, are but blemishes, it would hardly be fair to call them
vagaries, and they will not detract from
the personal popularity  of  a  well preserved specimen of the old school, who has
done much in his day for the city of his
adoption, and whose usefulness is apparently not yet spent.

Humours of joices in the iinnic of W. W.
Advertising.      St,   liarleton   Wain  writes
to the A'ictoria Times on
the humours of advertising, and perhaps
unconsciously furnishes one of thc most
amusing illustrations of what he undertakes to hold up to ridicule. Jt is a safe
guess that the writer is an Englishman, if
the name is any criterion. But if that is*
not conclusive, the fact that thc writer is
so apt at recognizing "cool audacity'' in
others, settles the matter. There arc sulli-
cient Canadians mi the lookout for the
amusing traits of English residents in thc
Dominion without il being necessary for
an Englishman himself to join tlieir ranks.
Mr. Wain, appropos of nothing, thinks it-
funny to furnish an extract from an Old
Country paper which reads as follows:
'Wanted, by a young man, board and
lodging in a respectable family, where his
Christian example would be considered
sufficient recompense." Mr. Wain's intelligence must be as deficient, as his sense
of humour, if he believes that such an
advertisement ever appeared except as a
joke, mid it is the "cool audacity" of men
of his type which helps to keep alive the
fiction that all Englishmen are like the
freaks who constitute such an unnecessary
proportion of the English Colony in

Last week 1 made reference to a
certain book about which 1 had heard
much but knew little. On Sunday a
kind friend who had seen my para
graph proffered the loan of a copy
and on the principle of "the better
the day the better the deed," I
promptly read it from cover to cover.
There was a preface—I read that too.
On its merits the book is not worth
the review; it is well written but lacks
distinction. Perhaps its strongest
feature from a literary standpoint is
its consecutiveness and lucidity, but
the thing has been far better done,
although never quite so brazenly, by
far better writers.
I should not like to say how many
years it is since I lirst read " Tom
Jones," which has long been regarded
as an English classic, and which is
a masterpiece of literary art, when
dealing with elemental passions.
Of modern writers, or at any rate
those which have been translated into
English, D'Anntizio easily carries the
palm. His "Triompho de 1 Morte" is
th'e finest thing of the kind ever writ
ten, it palpitates with passion, is frank
to a degree and absolutely fearless
in treating of the sex problem in all
its branches. Beside this monumental work the book under consideration
fades  into insignificance.
I am not one of those who believes
that it is necessary or advantageous
to discuss such matters in the public
press, unless it be conceded that the
present civilization has served its time
and a new code of moral ethics is
due. The reason 1 have raised the
question at all is that the English reviewers have paid the author the compliment of slashing him to pieces. All
the big book men have taken their
turn, and there is not one commendatory note, but their criticism lias
only served to direct attention to a
matter which is day by day attracting more attention, the evangel which
is being preached by influential writers on both sides of the Atlantic in
favour of greater personal freedom in
the matter of relationships. Such a
book as that under review would havc
been suppressed in England ten years
ago, twenty-live years ago it would
have landed the author where the
fruits of philosophy landed Charles
Bradlaugh and Annie Besant—in jail.
The true significance of its publication lies in the fact that in a short
time it has run through eight editions
and is still tolerated on the bookstores, such a fact really indicates the
greater tolerance of public opinion for
outspokenness on subjects whicli even
a generation ago were "caviare" to
the general public.
It is not my intention to give the
book an advertisement by naming title
or author. I consider it pernicious,
yet 1 am quite aware that in expressing such an opinion I am running
counter to thc views held by thc present generation, which only serves
to show how great an advance has
been made towards that licence to
which old fashioned people have not
yet become reconciled.
1 have just run across a man from
Seattle who has a grievance and as
he paid The Week the compliment of
saying that he knew it was the only
paper in Victoria which would have
lhe courage to mention his ease, I
cannot do less than give him a little
space, liis name is Conrad Furubotn
and is a partner in the shipping firm
of Jebsen and Ostrander, Seattle. Ile
is a man of means and of good connection. He has just returned from
an eighteen thousand mile trip and
says that in the hundred hotels in
which he has stopped hc has not once
been treated as discourteously as iu
a Victora Hotel. He arrived there
last night, booked a room and registered. With him was a gentleman
friend, who had arranged to return
to Seattle by the Princess at 12.45
a.m.
Shortly before 12 o'clock Mr. Furubotn and his friend returned to the
RASPBERRY VINEGAR

hotel from a stroll and went to the
former's room, the friend wanting to
sit there and chat until it was time
to leave for the boat. Soon a boy
came upstairs and said the Manager
would not allow the friend to remain
in the room. It matters not what
followed, Mr. Furubotn was very
irate. He and his friend came downstairs when the Manager and clerk
repeated what the boy had said, and
refused to allow Mr. Furubotn's friend
to remain in the room with him even
for a few moments. The upshot was
that Mr. Furubotn erased his name
from the register and indignantly left
the hotel and took a room at another
hotel for the night.
I do not profess to be posted on all
the laws and by-laws, which govern
hotels, but it is the first time in a
rather lengthy experience that I have
ever known an objection raised to a
cntleman taking his friend to a room
in a hotel, for which he had paid in
advance, for a friendly chat; and on
any showing the conduct of the management of the Victoria Hotel would
appear to bc harsh and unreasonable.
Mr. Furubotn was greatly incensed
because the clerk called him a blackguard, and still more so because when
hc attempted to get even by giving
the clerk a good thrashing hc found
himself collared by five men. Judging from his appearance if hc had
taken them one at a time hc would
have won out easily. Seriously, I
think it is a little bit unfair that a
respectable  man of means who had
dually paid for his room should
have been subjected to such treatment in thc City of Victoria. Undoubtedly Seattle at times sends us
objectionable visitors, and the press
is justified in fulminating against
them, which makes it all thc more
necessary that no injustice should bc
shown to those who conduct themselves properly.
A good deal has been said about
ack of water in Victoria, and the present lamentable condition of affairs
is emphasized by correspondence now
going on in the daily papers with reference to a letter which appeared in
thc Manitoba Free Press. It is all
very well to deprecate publicity on
this subject and to say that matters
will soon be mended; thc obvious
fact, and one whicli justifies anything

that can be said, is that the present
works will barely give temporary relief, aud are no contribution whatever
to a permanent settlement of the
question. Only this week I had a
conversation with a leading barrister
of the city, who informed me that he
and his wife were so disheartened at
the condition of their garden and
grounds that they could not bear it
any longer and were going to close
up their house indefinitely and go to
England for at least two or three
years. This is thc most serious case
which 1 have yet met, because the
man who said this is not only very
influential but a very reasonable fair
minded man, the last man in Victoria
to come to a hasty conclusion
Whether the Council recognizes it or
not the situation is not merely trying,
it is serious, and thc governing authorities havc not yet shown that they
are alive to its requirements.

Renunciation.
In any catalogue of the virtues renunciation should occupy a conspicuous place. It is not one of the aggressive virtues if there be such, but
one of those Howers of character bom
to blush unseen. It knows nothing
of the applause or eclat with which
men voice their approbation of i
noble deed. It is something more
than self denial, and something more
than sacrifice, because it partakes of
the best elements of both, and has
a finer tissue still.
In sacrifice there is often satisfaction, in renunciation rarely. Sacrifice involves the paying of a penance and with it the consciousness
of having cancelled a debt. Renunciation is the voluntary and determined
putting away of a great happiness
with no reward but that of conscious
rectitude, and with the certainty that
the act will be unnoted and unrewarded, unless indeed there be, as
Sterne would have us believe, a "recording angel."
Thc world, in spite of pessimists,
contains more nobility of character
than in any of the ages that have
gone before. Whether it be nobler
to forego a promised or the repetition of an experienced delight, may
be a question, much can be said on
both sides, but I incline to the view
that the greater demand is made on
frail human nature when it is called
on to relinquish an association which
has rounded out one's life and planted
sunshine instead of gloom in its pathway.
The world is full of such experiences and of such associations, the
growing strenuousness of life is making insistent demands for a relaxing
of the conventionalities in favour of
greater freedom in such matters, and
books are leaving the press almost
daily voicing the cry. There is some
weakening of the moral attitude and
some disposition to make concessions
to what is called "the spirit of the
times."
It is pointed out that if human nature remains the same in all ages
the restrictions of civilization have
varied, and if they were not elastic
and adaptable, they would long ago
have snapped. The enormous advance which has been made of late
years in the education, and what perhaps erroneously is called the emancipation of woman, is the principal
factor in this new demand.
It is said, and said with truth, that
hitherto men have made the laws,
but that hereafter women should
share the privilege, and whether this
he a sound proposition or not it is
an undeniable fact that the most
strenuous advocates ' for the relaxing
of those ties which have been most
seriously regarded by civilized peoples are the advanced women thinkers
of today. I am not expressing any
opinion, I am chronicling facts; but
I would seriously submit to those of
my readers who may be snared by
the erotic fiction so popular today
that the classical English writers have
not yet been superseded in the judgment of thinking people by the sensational writers of today.
I know that it is popular to deride
the Puritan sentiment, and even moral
reformers are never tired of reminding us that the New England school
is  very  much  out  of  date.    But  of
one thing I  am assured, that while
there  are  many who  sin,  there  are
still many who repent, and still many
who  are  noble  enough  to  renounce
what  in  a  moment  of  ecstasy  they
may   have   failed   to   recognize   as
wrong, but what in their calmer moments conscience could not approve.
It seems to me that we should have
to place frail  human nature upon a
lower plane than it has yet occupied
in any civilized community if it failed
to recognize the survival of this spirit.
Human judgment may be fallible but
it still has its ideals, and it still places
the man or woman who has the moral
courage and strength to practice the
virtue  of renunciation  on  a  higher
level than the one who selfishly persists in the eating of forbidden fruit.
Modern fiction ..with all its sensationalism, its striving after new ideals,
and its  exaltation of personal privilege   and   individual   right   to   "live
one's life" has yet to picture a nobler
conception of character than that so
graphically pourtrayed by one of the
most graceful and gifted of English
writers who belonged to another era
and another school.    She makes her
heroine, when  performing the  great
act of renunciation which leaves her
life barren and desolate, pen the following living, palpitating, words: "It
is very hard for me to have to tell
you that my last visit was the last ln
reality.   When I met you I was in a
wilderness of roses.   I rushed tempestuously to you from my troubles, only
to find others awaiting me, and now
a dread has seized me that you might
be punished for my sin.   Your dear
companionship and magnetic presence
were delightful.   My emotional temperament carried me away.   The life
I was leading with you seemed legitimate acting until  I lost myself in
the part, and now I am determined
that you shall be able to conscientiously act the man.   The mantle of
shame must not fall upon your shoulders.     Forgive   any   sorrow   I   may
have caused you, kindest and best of
friends, and try to forget one whose
greatest  fault  was  caring too  much
for that dear friend."
When the new school can produce
a finer example of nobility it will
have accomplished something which
so far seems impossible of attainment.

Mining in the Kootenay.
Neil McKay, the genial and popular
lember for Kaslo, turned up in Vic-
jria this week after a lengthy so-
jurn in the Kootenay. Neil is an
ptimist without being a boomster,
nd is well posted on all affairs in
is own and the adjoining constitu-
icy. He reports a healthy condition
■ith more work doing than at this
me last year, and what is perhaps
ie most promising feature of the out-
>ok, extensive development. The im-
roved price of metals is encouraging
line owners throughout the Koot-
uay, and if the movement continues
lere will be a substantial improve-
lent in the output. There have been
:veral important strikes in the Ross-
md District which give rise to the
lope. that, the celebrated Copper
lamp will be a shipper for many
■cars to come. Properties which were
|iscarded  five or  six years ago are
(jceiving attention and are justify-
lg the expenditure which has been
lade upon them. Altogether the
iember for Kaslo brings a good re-
ort of the land.
For a little city of five thousand inhabitants this is a splendid show, and
once more Nelson has fully sustained
its reputation as the Capital of tne
Kootenays.
Starting Early.
Nanaimo and Ladysmith are nothing if no. enthusiastic where football
matters are concerned. They havc
started the season early and Nanaimo
just managed to win out in an exhibition match by 1—0. There was no
rough play and no ill feelings, and
the score was sufficiently close to indicate that this season as last the
two  teams  are  equally  matched.
on the subject of local trading with
departmental stores. In a recent issue
it remarks that "Another edition of
the Canadian Family Bible, otherwise
Eaton's Fall Catalogue, is before the

incurable disease, and about as inscrutable, not to say as deadly, as
peritonizes.

ked  or allowed in  any instances.
ie little camp of Salmo added $248
1 the Nelson list.   The actual amount
cash   subscribed  in  Nelson  was
1,438.45, of which the whole amount
(cept $275  has  actually been  paid.
Too Late.
One incident of the Kemie fire has
escaped general notice, it certainly
points a moral even if it does not
adorn a tale. The Bank of Hamilton lust several thousand dollars
through not being able to close its
safe in time.
Price for Produce.
The Kelowna Courier has a letter
from a fru:t grower calling attention
to the slump in prices this year as
compared with last. The correspondent gives figures to show that the
term "slump" is justified, and says
that for some class of goods, notably
tomatoes, there is practically no market this year. He broadly hints that
the slump is due to American dumping in the Canadian market. Nothing dislocates home industries so
much as unfair foreign competition.
Mr. Fielding's celebrated dumping
clause was intended to remedy this
and is effective if rigidly enforced.
The Dominion inspectors of customs
are the persons to ascertain the facts
and too much pains cannot be taken
in a matter which so vitally affects
the well being of a district. The
correspondent in question very properly points out that profitable fruit
growing depends more on realizing
a good price for the early product
than on a large demand from the canneries at low figures.
A Far Call.
It is a far call from Fernie to New
York, but no less important paper
than the New York World has made
the catastrophe the subject of a
lengthy editorial and particularly calls
attention to the fact that all such
forest fires as destroyed Fernie are
preventable. This fire started among
the "slashings" of a lumber company,
and the World points out that they
should be burned by the lumbermen
after being stripped from the trees, a
very practical article winds up as follows:
"Forest fires are as preventable as
typhoid fever. When engines on forest railways are run by electricity or

that the colonel is going to be married on the 15th. The late adornment of his person would in a manner verify this rumour. Saturday he
greased one of his Sunday shoes. The
other shoe has been under the Gordon press for three months. Sunday
was given over to meditation, writing
editorials, and stuff. Monday he had
the reef points slashed off his whiskers. Tuesday he appeared in black

The Irrigation Convention.
The recent Irrigation Convention at
Vernon was easily the most important
gathering of the kind which has ever
met in the West and was attended
by irrigation experts from all over
the Province as well as by the Chief
Commissioner of Lands and Works.
Vernon may be considered the headquarters of .the Okanagan and therefore of the most fruitful district in
the dry belt. Effective Irrigation is
more in evidence in the Okanagan
than in any other section of British
Columbia, and its employment upon
a more extensive scale will bc the
policy of the near future. This policy
should be stimulated by the Convention, and other districts which have
hardly begun to irrigate will no doubt
realize that it is the first step to take
in any scheme of development. If
thc desert of the dry belt is to blossom as thc rose, it will be due to
irrigation.

whether such a paper is possible, and
still further doubts as to whether an
attempt to produce such a paper
would have a profitable result. If
experience goes for anything the Car-
