Victoria's Water Supply—Capt. Phillips-Woolley's Views-
Comment on Topics of the Week.
The water question is still on the nnitii-
leipal "tapis," but it is thought Mr.
JLubbe, of the Esquimalt Waterworks
Company, hns come to the rescue of the
[Victoria city council with n good sugges-
Ition. It is time that something new did
(turn up, because all the old points in the
situation have been talked nnd written
rbout to the death. The water supply,
heedless to remark, is as bad as ever—if
ot a.litle worse. Whatever may be de-
ided upon eventually, there npenrs to be
|io doubb/that the pipe system needs at-
lention/badly, and the pipes will have to
ie attended to, wherever the water may
»me from, if it ever comes from anywhere. In this connection, The Week is
Informed that representatives of two
Birms which manufacture wooden piping
ave approached the council with a view
0 having these pipes taken into consider-
tion when repairs are undertaken. From
information to hand, The Week is able
.0 say that this wooden piping is coining
the front.     A considerable quantity
■has been laid down in Vancouver, and
here are many miles of it in use   in
(Seattle, Port Townsend and other nearly places, where investigation can very
■nsily be made. The chief advantnge of
he wooden piping is that it costs only
rbout one half as much as the iron piping, but the manufacturers claim that it
las also many other advantages, such as
|lurability and cleanliness. Of course the
■ost of the piping is an important consideration, and one that affects the rate-
layers more directly and immediately. It
s said on the street thnt the council is
ot inclined to give serious consideration
the wooden pipe proposition because
ertain private interests would be af-
ected. We hope thnt privnte interests
ill be nllowed to look nfter themselves
1 this ense, nnd that a matter of so
luch financial importance will receive
roper consideration. Merely a casual
sport unfavorable to the new piping by
n official who has not made a thorough
ivestigation should not be allowed to
Idetrack n business proposition. The
mblic, nnyhow. would like to know how
he mntter stnnds, and whether the pri-
ato interests already referred to have
(let and defeated further consideration
jf the mntter nt any of the secret meet-
ligs of onr cily fathers.
Capt. Clive Philpis-Wolley is a man
i'ith ideas. His recent purchase of the
-letropolitnn block on Government street
nve him n good opportunity to work off
ome of the ideas in lnst Sunday's Col-
nist. Wc do not agree with mnny of
he gnllnnt cnptnin's views on things in
enernl; we have never met anyone who
id agree with them, but he is a sports-
inn and entitled to his say. These are
nil times for the daily pnpers, nnyhow,
nd the ubiquitous reporter haunts the
:ity in a vain search for "news." Even
3npt. Wolley's idens ure therefore welcome as "copy." He considers, as we
;ather from the Colonist, that Victoria
eed not attempt to win settlers from
he States. On the other hand he thinks
hnt "climate, scenery nnd inexpensive
port form the very best bnse ou which
rest an attraction cnlculnted to draw
llif very best clnss of people." We ex-
$ ate the captain from the chnrge of
living used those words, uud lay the
lnme to a tired-out reporter. As n
ternry mnn, ■Captain Phillips-Wolley
ever could hnve been guilty of so awk-
■ard and involved a sentence. The very
est clnss of people, we find, consist of
leuibers of "the upper classes of Eng
land whose incomes nre no longer commensurate with their position at home,
and other people of means," who come to
this coast from Eastern Canada iu search
of a better climate. These people, tbo
captain says, would "form here a society of solidity and substance; who
would raise the standard of the social life
of the city, making it what the capital
of such a province ought to be—a centre
of light and learning, the home of arts
and sciences, a place of progress and culture, a community actuated by public
spirit and enterprise, who would pursue
the march of progress shoulder to
shoulder, upholding the prestige of the
country of their adoption for the credit
of their home." This is all very tine, but
it is a fortunate couutry which can expect to attract only people of independent
means, and it is a poor couutry that desires only to get thnt class. British Columbia surely is possessed of sufficient resources to offer some attractions to enterprising young men with little capital
beyond energy and brains. No country
has ever heen developed by nn exclusive
settlement of small capitalists.   Ourious-
be, if the banks know their busiuess—reinvested in local industries. The crying
need of the provinee, and of Victoria in
particular, is more current cash. Nobody
seems to have any, aud half the time of
the business people seems to be occupied
iu chasing after each other for the
nimble dollar. But to return to the point,
what difference does it make to the community whether people invest their
money iu our industries directly, or indirectly through the banks? If the banks
choose to keep it locked up iu their safes,
or to invest it in Eastern Canada instead
of in British Columbia, the banks and
not the capitalists who deposit their
money with the bankers are to blame.
There is another portion of Capt. Phil-
lips-Wolley's remarks in the Colonist to
which we must take exception in the
cause of justice. The Captain is made
to say that Americans are "worshippers
of the Almighty Dollar nnd do not care
a jot for sport." We say nothing about
the religious views of the Americans,
but wc do say that thery care more than
a jot for sport. Anyhow, they care
enough to hnve wrested many trophies
from the picked amateur athletes of Old
England, and thnt international yacht
cup is still this side of the herring pond.
The Crystal  Palace.
Proposition to Borrow $150,000 to Construct Handsome Place of
Amusement to be Submitted to the Ratepayers.
A decision of Mr. Justice Duff in re
fish trap licenses has been made the
theme of some sensational nrticles in the
The city council is to be commended
for its decision to proceed at once to take
the opinion of the ratepayers on the proposal to erect a palace for the amusement oi the public. The proposal has
been under discussion in the city for a
considerable time, and there is not any
reason for delay, while, on the other
hand, if the palace is to be constructed,
the sooner it is commenced the better.
Tho Week already has expressed its approval of the project, and takes advantage of this opportunity to recommend
the ratepayers of the city to cast their
votes in favor of the by-law which shortly is to be submitted to them to provide
funds for the undertaking. The sum
proposed to be expended on the work is
,1!150,000. This is a considerable
amount of money, but it must be remembered that at least a large proportion of
the interest on the capital invested will
be paid by the receipts of the palace, and
thnt it will provide a very big, additional attraction to the city.
The scheme involves a notable improvement to Victoria.   The proposed site of
The Public:—Water, water everywhere, but only a drop to drink !
ly enough, the captain makes a very fine
distinction: "I am not speaking," he is
made to say, "of those who come to the
country for a home, and proceed to lodge
the.r money carefully and permanently in
the bank at an interest of 3 per cent., in
place of investing their capital in the
industries or properties which are the
life of tlle place—for these t entertain
sentiments of unmeasured contempt, and
as citizens I regard them ns n detrimental element." The "unmeasured contempt" is uncalled for. Neither can this
class be considered detrimental. They

daily papers. The point at issue is
whether tho provincial government has
power to lease land under t'he sea within
three miles from the shore. It is an old
question which has never been authoritatively answered, but it U one with which
al1 those who secured trap licenses were
liiiito familiar. Tho Dominion government claims territorial rights below low
water mark, and ibis clnim is disputed by
the province. Mr. Justice 1 hill's decision probably will lead fo an nppenl to
tlio Privy Council and tho final setlle-
ii out of the matter. No real hardships
are likely to result ns remedial legislation

hotel grounds, and the entrance is to
face an extension of Douglas street
across the now vacant land. This will
provide a handsome "square" in thnt
part of the city and will, incidentally,
increase the value of all property in the
vicinity. The front of the palace is to
be about 501) feet in length, with a grand
entrance in the centre, und, us designed
by Mr. V. M. Rattenbury, is most handsome und effective in style. Immediately to the rear of the entrance hnll will
be a big pavilion with a huge glass dome
with a band stand and seats nearby.
The idea is to make of this pavilion an
iiuineii.se conservatory and a delightful
promenade, To the right of the pavilion
will be a concert hall large enough to
accommodate l,5ud people, to be used for
concerts, theatrical performances, etc.,
and to the left of the pavilion will be a
large salt water swimming bath. The
grounds behind the palace will be laid
out with tennis and racket courts, a
howling green, and also with nn artificial
lake and attractive pathways.
Nobody can doubt that a place of
amusement on this scale would be a
most valuable asset to the city. Victoria's attractions ns a tourist resort lack
just such a place, while it would also be
much appreciated by our own young people, who are by no menus indifferent to
amusement. The idea is to charge ten
cents admission, with a reduction on
season tickets, and there would be a very
considerable revenue from this source.
The concert hall nlso would be a source
of revenue, as mauy visiting as well as
local entertainments would be giveu
there. It certainly would be taken advantage of by some of the leading people
on the American stnge who are outside
the theatrical trust and therefore debarred from the Victoria theatre. The
plans of the building show a number of
stores along the front which would bring
in nice rentuls, and nltogether there is
no reason why the crystal palace of Victoria should not very nearly, if not quite,
pay for itself.
There is one matter of_ minor importance that should be settled, that is the
name of the palace. The Crystal Palace
would be distinctive, as, so far as we
know, there is only one other Crystal
Palace in existence, namely, that in London. "Winter Gardens" hardly is as appropriate, while the two names together
constitutes too much of a mouthful. The
Week's vote, therefore, is that the title
"Crystal Palace" be chosen. We are
sure that the name will be popular.
If Victoria decides in favor of the
erection of the palace, Victorians will be
entitled to some honor abroad. Our
Vancouver clitics will have to admit that
at least we huve waking moments, aud
if we do iiot go out after business in a
very energetic fashion, we are at least
auxious to provide amusement for our
"What the hell do we care?" has evidently been adopted in public affairs
as Canada's motto. Dizzy with prosperity, this country is reeling along at a
rate which is bound to bring it up with
a sharp bump. So thoroughly commercialized hnve the people become both In
public nnd private affairs that they appear to have forgotten the limits which
separate business from brigandage. Nobody seems to care what evil thing is
done so long ns he is not the direct victim of it. While prosperity lnsts, few
are likely to feel themselves injured by
the extravagance of their rulers. For
the past ten years we hnve hnd an almost unbroken period of good times—
good times much less the result of government thnn of world-wide circumstances.—Toronto Snturdny Night.
The dear brethren of the Lord's Day
Alliance hnve fussed in vnin before the
Judicial Committee of Hie Imperial
Privy Council. Provincial legislation
in the matter wns declared ultra vires,
aud a suppositious case of some sort of
violation of Aunty's idens refused. The
Supreme court in a case of this kind
must necessarily be the people. If the
people decline to lake tlie same view of
Ihe observance of the first day of the
week as is held by the few busybodies
who are everlastingly pounding at the
door of the Privy Council, forcing themselves into committees of the egislature,
obtruding themselves upon cabinets, aud
scratching together eases for the police
eourt, the fussy folk should revise themselves and their somewhat arbitrary
views; for no matter what old statute
may be revived, what new law is passd,
or how high an authority may hold it to
bo intra vires, the Lord's Day will only
be observed as the people see fit to observe it.—Toronto Saturday Night. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, AUGUST \2, 1905.

interests of the Liberal party in this
province. What the Liberals want,
says Mr. Martin, is a British Columbian

British Columbian desired is a Grit of
tbe grittiest description who would be
a thorn in the side of the McBride gov-
e'.nment. However, Mr. Martin may
test assured of one fact, and that is tliat
nobody cures what Mr, Martiu wants.
His opinions have uo weight eit'lier with
Liberals or Conservatives, all of whom
will decline to believe that his resurrection (in print) is anything more than the
h st effort for existence of a lost soul on
the brink of annihilation.
The World, new press and all, is quite
g.veu over to the policy of pin pricks.
Every afternoon except Sundays—the
World being distinctly Scotch Presbyterian—this enterprising advocate ol
John Oliverism comes out with a new
accusation ngumst Ihe government, the
counts running from iish trap licenses to
Mi', Chas. Wilson's professional work,
urn', from Knien pepper fo East Kootenay
oil iiceuses. In his rare moments of
Uxughtfulness, the editor of tho World

nimt remains alive, and still more why
every bye-election udds to tho government's kicking capacity.
Our Nels'jii correspondent's notes on
the Pooh-Bah of the Kootenay capital
illustrate very amusingly the sufferings
sustained by the subjects of John Houston and his "practical politics." The
tarring of iho seats in Houston's pnrk
by friends of another park project came
pretty near to open rebellion. Houston
must have brains, or he never would
havo lasted so long as he has in Nelson.
The sad thing about, the man is Chat his
irtelligeuce generally is misdirected.
The order-iu-council establishing the
County court of East Kootenay will take
effect on October 1st. This court will
embrace the electoral districts of Fernie,
Cranbrook and Columbia. The Domi'u-
li-n government in the supplementary
estimates made a liberal graut for the
maintenance of fhe new court. It is

P. E. Wilson, of Nelson, W. A. Galli-
lier's law partner, is slated for the judgeship, The judge will in all probability
reside at Fernie, the chief town in the
Metaphorically speaking, the eyes of
the world are now fixed on the envoys
of Russia and Japan, who are meeting at
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to consider terms for establishing peace between the two countries. At the time of
writing the actual terms which the Japanese are willing to offer have not been
made public, and opinion on the outcome
cannot be worth very much. Nevertheless, there nre signs which point to the
failure of the negotiations. According
to a lumor which hns not been denied,
the Jupnnese are prepared to submit two
sets of terms. The lirst proposal is
stated to involve the payment by Russia
of an indemnity of !f750,UOO.OUO. the session of the Island of Saklialien. recently seized by the Japanese, the ubso-
lute withdrawal of Russia from Manchuria and the recognition of u Japanese protectorate over Korea. U is stated, also, thut these ternis nre conditional upon their immediate acceptance by
Russia, and that otherwise much more
drastic terras, including the session of
Vladivostock and a considerable portion
of Russia's possessions in Asia, will be
demanded. If this statement of Japan's
position is accurate, there appears to be
little chance of a settlement. While tlie
Tsar's envoys might accept the first set
of terms—although this is exceedingly
doubtful—the presentation of a second set
of a more drastic character would certainly be regarded ns a threat, nnd probably would result in 1111 abrupt termination of negotiations, lt is quite u mistake to suppose that Russia is bound
to submit to any demands made. Tliere
is no reason why the state of war should
not continue indefinitely so fnr ns Russia is concerned, because while the Russians might not be able to take the offensive in Manchuria for some time to
come, they could continue n border and
guerilla warfare until Japan becomes
weary. Considering the immense amount
of money that Russia has spent iu Manchuria, it is difficult to believe that she
will relinquish that couutry and pay Japan an immense indemnity into the bargain.
The first gathering of u national assembly since the seventeenth century is
to be proclaimed in Russia to-duy. This
is an important step in the direction of
reform, and one for which the people of
Russia mny thank the disasters to Russian arms in the Far East. The government of Russia has received such rude
shocks during the last year that it hus
need of the direct support of the people.
The assembly is to be a deliberative aud
cotisultive body, which will have the
power to reject the proposals of the
Tsar's ministers by a majority of two-
thirds, or over, It will consist of some
J30U members, chosen by an indirect elective system. Such an assembly may do
much to improve the administration, but
its constitution certainly will uot have
any finality, us it is sure to develop into
a more independent parliamentary system. I
R. T. Lowery has got weary of bucking corporations in his paper The Ledge,
of Fernie, aud hus sold out. From ull
accounts thut have reuched the Const,
Jir. Lowery has made a pretty good
thing out of The Ledge, and proposes to
take a rest from the drudgery of country
journalism. He will resume publication
of his monthly magazine, "Lowery's
Claim," which he intends to issue from
Nelson. The Week wishes him luck. If
he finds money is too eusily made in
Nelson for a man of his strenuous nature he might try publishing the Claim in
Victoria. Here he mould have the time
of his life iu making ends meet.
Seventy-live per cent of his subscribers
would not pay the subscription, and if
he went after the dollars he would receive 11.11 intimation that the publication
was not wauled, auywuy, uud that it
laid only been taken in charity—free of
charge. The meanness of many people
in the matter of paying subscriptions to
papers is quite colossal. We wouder
how inuny people know that the uveruge
paper in British Coluuibiu costs two or
three times us much to print as is received by the publishers iu subscriptions,
supposing all subscribers paid up?
Next to the sale of patent medicines
the most serious matter injuriously affect ing the public health is the udulter-
utious of foodstuffs. Certain revelations
recently have been made hi the Uuited
States iu regard to the extensive adulteration of foods in that country, nnd have
spread alarm among the people. So
strong is the feeling uroused that the
Argonaut of San Francisco hus published un article on the poisoned foods of
America in which it is stated that the
recent wholesale condemnation of American foodstuffs by the German customs
officials was entirely justified by the detection of poisonous preservatives iu the
goods shipped. How far this detestable
practice has penetrated into Canada we
do not kuow, but it is to be hoped that
llic officials whose duty it is to protect
the public from this source of danger nre
on the alert. A dairyman of Grand
Forks, named Floyd, wns prosecuted the
other dny fur having sold milk containing
formaldehyde—the poison that undertakers pin in corpses to delay putrefaction—and was lined $100 by the police
magistrate, Mr. Cochrane, who declared
that the next person detected in poisoning
the public in that way would certainly
go to prison if tried by him. Several of
Floyd's customers suffered from drinking the milk. It transpired thut the
formaldehyde had been contained in a
mixture sold by a Seattle firm and called "I'reservaline Extract." If any other
people in this province are importing this
poison it is up to the customs officials to
investigate such importations and to report them lo the proper authorities. If
there is one thing that is more damnable
than me selling of patent medicines made
tip largely of alcohol and other injurious
Ingredients, it is the poisoning of foodstuffs by the use of "preservatives."
Tho Esquimalt Waterworks Company
has conn to the resci'o of the Mt} council with an offer of 15.000,000 ';n nw i f
water per day for $20,000 pel minimi
the city to supply and lay Ihe n> ceysury
pipes. An alternative offer of the :oui
puny is to sell out, lock, stock and barrel, for $1,271,000.    Also the compnny
is willing to give the eity a twenty-year
option on the property at the above
price, with 3 per cent, added after four
years, and sell wafer to the city at the
above rate in the meantime. The company also is willing to supply not less
than 1,000,000 gallons a day at 2 cents
per thousand and the balance required
would he sold for ubout t1/^ cents per
thousuud. During a conference between
representatives of the company and the
hoard of aldermen, on Wednesday, it
wus stuted that a sufficient supply,
namely, 0,000,000 gallons per diem, could
be secured if the filter beds at Elk lake
were cut out and the pipes connected
with Thetis uud Long lake. Mr. Lubbe,
of the waterworks conipuny, lightly suggested thnt rates pnid for wnter in tlie
city might be increased, but Mr. Lubbe
is a seller und not it purchaser of water.
The present rates are sufficiently high
for those residents who desire to keep
their gardens green.

Editor, and all business letters to the
Telephone B 878,
The political situation iu Great Britain at the present time is of unusual interest to the people of the British col-
inies. if the political prophets of the
Old Country are to be believed, there is
every possibility that the Liberals, under
their dull Scottish lender, Sir William
Campbell-Bauuermuu, will be returned
to power at the next general elections.
To the "Britons beyoud the seas" this
result would be most discouraging. Ever
since the late Jir. Gladstone adopted the
Irish Home Rule platform, the Liberals
have been iu a bad way. The party is
too narrow nud bigot led und too unenterprising to command either the respect or
confidence of the colonials. The Liberals
are Identified iu Greater Britain with
the Little Englunders—pro-Boerish people who carp aud criticize aud retard the
wheels of progress, uud who offer the nation uo alternative policy that is worthy
of consideration. It is not, therefore,
surprising that the Liuerals have taken
up au attitude of absolute hostility to the
fiscal policy of Jir. Chamberlain. Mr.
Chamberlain has championed the cause
of the Empire, nud thut is. quite sufficient to ensure the enmity of the Liberals. But, us hns frequently been the cuse
of late yenrs. the Liberals have proved
themselves to lack political foresight.
Sooner or later, Jir. Chamberlain's policy
will triumph, and the resulting prosperity
to all parts of the Empire will demonstrate the fallacy of the arguments now
advanced against this reform. Old Country people would be surprised if they
knew how unanimous colonial opinion is
on this question. We believe thut if the
colonies were allowed to elect representatives to the House of Commons at thc
next general elections, tliere would not
be a single Liberal ejected in Canada or
Australia, or in nny of the other colonies,
except perhaps iu South Africa, where
thc Dutch element, mindful of the support accorded Britain's enemies in the
lnte wnr by mnny of the Liberals, might
tnke the other side.
If the Empire is to remain Intact, colonial opinion must some day Influence
the colonial policy of the Imperial government. Wo nre entitled to some say
in matters that especially affect us, and
Mr. Chnmberlnin's policy is of as vital
importance to the colonies ns it is to
Great Britain, lt is difficult for us to
uuderstnnd how the Liberal party can
justify its position in this matter. We
can realize that political capital easily
cun be made by appealing to the poorer
classes of Great Britain on the grouud
that the price of the necessaries of life
would be increased by Mr. Chamberlain's policy, but surely the conscience of
the Liberal party has uot fallen so low
us to take advantage of an unreasoning
prejudice with au argument so fallacious? The mild form of protection involved in Jir. Chamberlain's proposals
need alarm nobody on the score of the
price of food, aud the general prosperity
resulting would put more money iuto the
pockets of the working classes, who
would be the first to benefit by the improved conditions iu home industries.
Let the workiug classes of Great Britain compare their couditiou with that of
the workers of Cuuada and America, protectionist countries, and they will soon
turn a deaf ear to the "dear food" cry
of the Liberal party.

Tho Victoria Times, mouthpiece of

enlightened (?) journal is pleased fo call

(Atlin  Claim.)
The news of a gold strike always carries with it great excitement and causes
a desire in the breasts of many, especially iu those of that restless class, the real
frontiersman—who are always in the van
—to get there, and that quietly. Tho
news of the find on Iron Creek, just
over our boundary, in the Yukon district,
has been no exception, and already has
started the rush, which gives promise of
being as large as any of recent years.
Atlin is supplying its quota to swell the
number. This district, lying as it does
iu the gold belt zetween Cassiar and
-Klondike, nnd always looked upon as a
land of promise, is practically unexplored, only u few men haying been on uuy
of its rivers or creeks. Iron Creek is a
tributary of and nbout 90 miles up the
Nisullin, which flows into Tesliu luke,
and the diggins are about 25 miles from
the main river. The three ways of reaching tlie Nisultin, the gateway to the gold
fields, are, up tht Ilootnlinquu to Teslin
lake; up the Stickiue to 'Telegraph and
across to Teslin; nnd from Atlin lnke
ncross to Teslin. Looking nt the map
the latter way seems to be the easiest
and most practicable route, especially
for winter travel, Teslin being some 65
miles a little enst of the north end of
Atlin lake. The divide between the two
lakes is low, the country open nnd level,
nnd at present there nre two trails. A
small expenditure of money would put
through a first class trail for both sum
mer and winter travel. This should be
built at ouce so as to aid in a small way
the efforts of the men—whose lot is not
the easiest—who are opening up our
When The Red Gods Call.
Civilization, which means, after all,
merely the organization, of society, is not
infrequently' unsuccessful us regards one
class of individuals, says a writer in an
exchange. The trump printer could
never be reformed, but he left uloug his
trail many material suggestions that
wore uf value lo tlle country press of a
quarter of a century ago. He revolted
at the calm monotony of prolonged life
iu one couutry town, He went to another—and to another, uutil lie located

lt might huve been, if it were uot for
the defeat of tlie Aruiada, that Francis
Drake would not ouly have gone down
to posterity uuknighted, but classed with
.Morgan, the pirate. If it were not for
the uriiiy and navy, the Western prairies
of America; the free life of Rhodesiu,
the sheep-runs of Australia, und the gold
fields of the Klondike, how many thousands of the British race would uow be
living iu passive, if not active, antagonism to the existing order of things which
we call modern cvilizatiou?
Conventional society stuuds aloof from
them except under extraordinary conditions, as when Drake was called by
Howard of Feversham to defend the
English const uguiust the Spanish invader, or when a severance of the Empire is threatened, as iu the Boer war.
A great many scientific instruments
would not have been perfected ii' there
had not been men "rolling down the Rut-
eliffe road, drunk and raising Cain,"
willing to enlist on Polar expeditions.
Tlie lighthouses of northwestern settlement, the Hudson's Bay Company trading posts, would long huve remained un-
lighted if it were not for the rebellion
in the hearts of adventurous young
Scottish Highlanders ugaiust the quietness of the life in Highland cluchaus.
And so there have been more members
of the complex British race who have
been pioneers, discoverers, soldiers of
fortune and adventurers than any other.
It may also be said thut the majority
of tramps in Ihe world claim English ns
their native tongue. There may be an
ocean of difference iu degree between
the spirit that animates a John Franklin who leaves u home of luxury and refinement to brave the vicissitudes of the
Arctic regions, uud that of the man who
turns his buck on comfortable respectability and lives a precarious life as a
sailor on the North Atlantic, a waiter
in Chicago, a cowboy in Montana, and
a dock laborer in San Frnncisco; but
after all it may be that both in their
own wny and according to their own
standard and an inherited nature, are
answering the call of the Red Gods that
Kipling sings about.
But nature knows no waste, and the
wanderers, tlie Bohemians who are frequently the discoverers and pioneers of
new fields of industry and the providers of new sources of enjoyment, are factors in the great scheme
of things, unrewarded as they may be
from the standpoint of materialism.
Knight-errantry was not the worst outcome of the feudal chivalry of the middle ages.
I knew n man once, a grave, middle-
aged, seemly-living gentleman, married
and blessed with a decorous family, in
whom the latent Bohemianism which is
snid to exist in every son of Adam would
burst forth whenever a fire occurred in
the little Ontario town where he lived.
It was a marvel for years why an otherwise self-respecting and respected citizen
should, through the excitement of a local
lire, go on a prolonged debauch. At lnst
the explanation was given. The greatgrandfather of the respectnble but occasionally erratic citizen hnd been one of
the sailor-firemen, on the organization
of the London fire brigade when modern
fire-fighting wns systematized nnd when
the most reckless sailors were recruited.
It was n case of reversion to type or
ancestry when the fire-gong sounded.
How very easily n white inun of little

restraints of civilization are irksome

Through The Islands
3.2—Notes on Maine and Galiano Island—Prosperous Settlers
and Future Prospects.
(Staff Correspondence of The Week)
|jf all the islands of the Gulf, Mayne
Galiano, forming Plumper (or Ac-
) Pass, through which   travel   the
amei * jilying between Vancouver and
ptorln, are perhaps best known to resi-
jits of other parts of   the   province,
lyne Islnnd has excellent means    of
limunication  with Victoria nnd New
Htminster, for both the steamer Iro-
ois and a C. P. R. steamer call there
freight and passengers.    This little
attractive    island    has two hotels,
Jich in summer time entertain a large
nber of visitors, chiefly from Victoria
Vancouver.   These hostelries are the
lyne Island hotel, under the mnnage-
lit of the Messrs. Cayzer, and which is
jiated close to   the wharf,   and   the
|nt Comfort hotel, situated on a fine
at the entrance to Plumper Pasi,
I managed by Mr. Maud.   The Point
lifort hotel was built by Mr. Warbur-
t Pike some years ago.   It is a handle house.    The Mayne Island house
Ihe property of Mr. Archibald Ingles,
Inerly a prominent business   man of
litreal, hut who on a visit to British
lumbia  some years  ago  was so  at-
fcted by the charms of Mayne Island
|t he decided to settle there.   Mr. In-
1 owns a considerable quantity of very
Id land on Mayne Island, as well as
Tie desirable cottage sites along the
Ire near the wharf.
often is the scene of pleasant gatherings
of young people.
One of the best known of all the Islanders is Mr. Collinson, who is a pioneer
of the province, and had a wide and
varied experience before he settled down
to a quiet life on Mayne Island. Tom
Collinson is postmaster and runs a regular little country store, which is a favor-
its haunt for masculine gossips. He has
reached a green old age; his years sit
lightly upon him, for he is still one of the
best shots with gun or rifle on the islands,
and he is as hale and hearty as many a
healthy young man. In addition to his
business, Mr. Collinson has a fine orchard, and produces first class apples
and small fruits.
Another old-timer is Mr. W. Robson,
brother of the farmer, who for many
years was host of the Mayne Islnnd
hotel. He has lately retired from that
business, and has started a poultry farm
on an extensive scale. His chicken
houses are built on the most approved
plans, and dre large, airy and easily kept
clean. He says that, so far, he hns no
reason to complain of the results of his
enterprise, and points to the splendid
market for broilers as offering the most
profitable business for poultry raisers.
Mr. and Mrs, Robson have a large family
of grown up sons and daughters, and
many grand-children to boot.
Steamer Iroquois, Pender Island Oanal.
rere are some excellent farms on
lie Island. Mr. V. Robson's farm in
centre of the island has been a good
!ng proposition lor many years. Mr.
ion hns expended a large amount of
r ou it, and hus a big acreage in cul-
iou. Resides raising an excellent
ity of hay and grain, Mr. Robson
a good deal iu the way of dairying
poultry raising, and has also some
llent fruit trees. Mr. Dean's farm
nother profitable undertaking. He is
acticnl farmer with good judgment in
matter of horses and cattle, and car-
011 a general farming business on in-
;ent lines. Mr. Bennett's farm,
ted not far from Mr. Robson's place,
oted for its fruit, dairy and general
uce. Mr. Bennett is the fortunate
essor of stalwart sons who have
in to the agricultural life, and who
valuable assistance ou the farm,
and Mrs. Bennett are very popular
he islnnd, and their hospitable home
Mayne Island has a very pretty little
Anglican church, under the charge of the
Rev. Canon Paddou, who now resides ou
the island. Services are held every Sunday.
Some of the best land on Mayne Island
is included in an Indian reserve, which
many of the residents of the island hope
will some day be available for white settlers. People who are on the lookout for
a home in a quiet and beautiful place
would do well to pay a visit to Mayne
and Galiano Islands. The climute is delightful! the scenery charming, und the
cost of living is remarkably low. There
is plenty of good sport to he had with
deer, duck and grouse, and salmon trolling in the season. Boating is a popular
pastime around these islands. The tides
are rather swift, but the mystery of their
moods is soon mastered, and they are
utilized to assist instend of retarding progress. There is plenty of social life on
the islands.   Picnic, concerts nnd dances,
and even theatrical entertainments, serve
to amuse young and old, and except for
the spoilt dweller iu big cities there is
no reason for feeling dull at any time of
'he year.
As the islands become belter known
there is sure to be considerable settlement. On Galiano Island there is plenty
uf fair land available, but with a few
exceptions there is uol much systematic
larmiug carried on there as yet. Mr.
Urubbe, who is au excellent judge of
cattle, has some hue animals on his ranch
on this island, and is said to have done
very well with them. He is u constant
exhibitor of stock ut the agricultural
.shows, aud has taken many prizes'. Air.
Joseph luge, J. P., is busy Clearing bis
ranch, and should huve a nice place in
.uioilier year or two. His house is one
ol the huudsomest ou thc island, uud is
aie scene of many island panics.
The land on these islands is not easily
ciuared, and it is likely thai many ul tbe
tuture settlers will devote themselves
more to smull farmiug, fruit growing und
poultry raising thuu to agriculture.
There are two schools on the isiand.
^<ue is presided over by Mr. J. \V. Sinclair, who hus beou school leachiug ou
tue isiuuds for many years—long cuougu
io see some of his former pupils take positions as teucuers themselves—and he
mis had great success with a large proportion of his pupils. The other scUuol
■s at present in the charge of a young
victoria lady. The Messrs. Burrill supply lue islanders with the necessaries,
uud some of the luxuries of life in their
store, which hus grown iuto a thriving
Uuliuuo, like Mayne Island, is chiefly
served in the way of transportation by
ihe popular little steumer Iroquois, which
calls at all island points one, two or three
times u week, and handles freight und
passenger tratllc iu an cthcient manner.
The Iroquois is oue of the isluud institutions, uud is well beloved by all islanders.
The channel betweeu Mayne uud Uuliuuo Islands is uot wide enough lo spar-
ate the residents irom each other, aud
entertainments ou either isluud always
ure shared in by Ihe people from the
other side. Galiauo Isluud is not so much
so settled us Mayne, and the roads ure
uot so good or so plentiful, but considering the scattered character of the existing settlement they are fairly good.
A few views of Mayne Island are printed ou tu.s page, and others showing
scenes on Galiauo will be. printed luter.
a notable exhibit iu the Berlin Ho-
Jienzolleru museum consists of the
"death dice." About the middle of the
seveuin century a bi« itiful young girl
was murdered, and suspii ion fell ou
two soldiers, Ralph and Allied, who
were rival suitors, for her baud. As
both prisoners denied their guilt uud
even torture failed to extract a confession from either, Prince h'reden I. William, the Kaiser's ancestor, decided to
cut the Gordion knot with the dice box.
The two soldiers should throw for their
lives, the loser to be executed as the
murderer. The event was celebrated
with great pomp und solemnity, and the
Prince himself assisted at this appeal to
divine intervention, as it was considered
by everybody, iucludiiig the accused
Ralph was given the first throw, uud
he drew sixes, the highest possible n umber, and uo doubt felt jubilant, The dice
box wus then giveu lo Alfred, who fell
on his knees and prayed aloud: "Almighty God thotis knowest 1 am innocent. Protect me, 1 beseech thee!" His-
ing to his feet, he threw the dice with
such force thut one of them broke in
two. The unbroken one showed six anil
the broken one nlso showed six on the
larger portion, nud the bit thut hud been
split off showed one, giving a total of
thirteen, or one more than the throw of
Ralph, The whole audience thrilled
with astonishment, while the Prince exclaimed "God has spoken!" Ralph, regarding the miracle ns n sign from
heaven, confessed his guilt and was son-
leuced to death. It is probable that Allied ever after did uol number himself
among those who look upon IS ns an unlucky number.

Kootenay Notes
Nelson. August ">.
The chief topic of the Kootenays during the past week has been the Dooming
ft Midway.   Midway   is.   rather   was,
li deserted village, and its only title to
liitincflon was that in some far gone by
epoch it had some   smelter aspirations,
lpielched by the towering success of the
trianby, and is    the    terminus, for the
|ionc" 0* the 0. P. R. extension Westward of their Crow's Nest branch. Fifty-
Itven years ago, i'he oldest inhabitant,
Ir what really ought to be the oldest fn-
labitant, says that he came to Midway
■ild   bought   up   ranches.    There   was
L'ither a Spokane, nor a Seattle nor a
fancouver.    Still he   came    there and
jught land, and now he hns sold it to
Ibt contractors,    who   are   putting up
■carding houses (they never henrd of the
felly Act) or the rushing merchants of
ll descriptions, who nre piling into Mid-
lay, till tho town, like the newly hatcli-
II chicken with the egg shell still stick-
lg to its head, will not believe that if
kis never the village    of   n couple of
fenths   ngo.   The   V., V. '& E.   hnve
(nrted to build westward.   The Vernon
Midway railroad are doing more or
Iss work.    They had to or they would
live lost ''he charter, and Midway   is
Laming, and  is    again    talking   of a
pielter.   The country around Midway is
bod.   The 0. P. R. halts   at Midway
lid probably goes on, possibly over the
ternon-Midway line; the Great North-
\ni are across   the   Kettle   river, and
ft-gently will bridge it and run over fhe
Ifanadian boundary, and as the western
uteway to the Boundary country, Mid-
fay undoubtedly has a future.
Locally there is nothing much stirring
Ixcept tlio fair and    I'he tourists.    Tlie
Jig stnr is blazing, and there is 'nobody
re sufficiently strenuous, except John
Ilouston, nnd he is off to the const, to
lorry over anything except to find the
liadiest side of the house or office, nnd
lie place where the    coolest beverages
- dispensed.   T'he week before last the
llvertising    committee    of   the   Great
lorlhern started upon a    tour through
las Kootenny country with a view of
Itlrncting tourist travel hitherwurd, The
P. R. nre talking   along   the same
ties.    The Great Northern people are
liking of puttiug up hotels and sending
[it extensive literature among the pco-
who do spend money in the East nnd
lint a climate whose   hottest summer
|ys hardly average above    70 degrees
hrenheit in the shade.    Hence in thc
Lrist lino Nelson,   and,   indeed,    the
ooto'nays generally, are waking to the
Illation that the scenery here compares
(Sorably with anything any other old
• i.tinent possess:;.-:.    Nelson    is getting
[tenuous tins way.    lt hns discovered
: has a lake,   a magnificent   sheet of
liter twenty miles long and a mile or
broad, entering into Kootenay hike,
i far greater   dinn nsions.    Deer come
Iwn and drink at   tlie   lakeside, bear
found in the steep    wood-covered hill-
lies   beyond,    and   numberless   trout"
found iu the waters.    Each    side rise
ountains varying from   5,000 to eight
Ld nine thousnud feet In height with n
l\v glaciers here nnd   tliere.    Nelson's
layor hns inaugurated a park, and the
[tizens generally go out on fho lake and
tten to the band.   But here the move-
lent will not    stop.    Already tliere is
Ilk of    the exhibition    buildings being
lunicipally owned, of the laying out' of
golf links, a tenuis court and a town
|er.   The   lake swarms with launches
lid row boats and canoes, and latterly
lery crazy old dinghy that   will   bold
later at al! has been pressed into ser-
Ice.   Without fhe infinite charm of the
la, but plus   the   mountains and the
Irest bordered lakes, Nelson will press
[nt benuty spot Victorin, hard in the
{traction of the tourist.    The    tourist
It oipations of   the two   places should
lin bunds, for the one plnce is but the
Implement of the other.
iTIiis week, it is   again   slated. John
OUSton will have a legal bnl'tle with his
calcitrant council.    It is In como off
the const in the form of nn application
tho dismissed civic employee, Coulter,
|'e tiro fenm driver,    to    the Supreme
urt for all kinds of pains aud penalties
I'jinst the mayor.    The latest is that
(davits hnve been sent down declaring
lit ns Conifer is not n  ratepayer he
I. no business to make the application,
[fact it is "deninilion Impudence" on
pnrt, ns    the well-known .Miintnlini
laid suy.   The other side declare that1
lis a ratepayer,   and   are   awaiting
ersily the result of the grent battle. But
the Houstonifes are just ns confident,
ond as the mayor's paper has not been
vituperative of late probably they have
same reason for their confidence, But
the main reason for the visit of t'he
mayor to the coast is a further applica-
t;on of his wicked enemy, the West
Kr.otenay Power & Light Company, fo
dn things upon tho Kootenny river in
alteration of their plans for the erection
of their power plnnt. One says t'he
mayor's enemy, for ho really does make
u personal point of it, and like King
Charles, head iu the memorials of the
lumen-ted Mr. Dick, West Kootenny is
never out of tlie columns of the Tribune.
Well fhe company can stand advertising.
Most Western concerns can. The mayor
says that if the Kootenay river is play-
•m with by these people the city power
plant will either be out! of sight under
water or swamped with additional expense.    Hinc illate lachrymate.
On Saturday last the Victoria Cricket
Club's "A" eleven wero defeated by the
Garrison team by 200 runs to 155.
The Oranbrook lacrosse team lost to
Lerhbridge on the lafter's grounds last
week in the final game for the Levas-
stur cup decision. Lethbridge won, aud
the cup goes back to the Prairie town.
The Seattle lacrosse team defeated
Portland on Sunday last by 8 goals fo7,
the combination play of the Puget Sound
I'-iu outclassing their opponents, who
nevertheless have some excellent individual players.
Victoria players have beeu to the fore
ia the annual tournament of the Vancouver Lawn Tenuis Club, which has
teen in progress during this week.
Anong those taking part are Capt.
Wright, Capt. Williams, Miss V. Pooley,
Miss Mara, the Misses Pitts, Miss N.
I'odd and Miss Bell.
The annual regatta of the North Pnei-
Hr Association of Amateur Oarsmen
commenced at Esquimalt yesterday, aud
nill be concluded to-day. As the more
important events take place to-day the
report of the races is held over uiutil
next week. Some very close races nre
expected this afternoon, and there is sure
to be a big assemblage of spectators.
Very creditable marksmanship was
displayed in the annual shoot of the Vic-
aria Gun Club at Lnngford Pluius on
Sunday last. Mr. Weiler won Hie
itophy with a seore of 14 out of a possible 15, the next man being Air. Adams
with a score of 13. In the first round
Messrs. Weiler and Adams tied for first
place with 25 out of 30, and Messrs.
.•Miort and T. Peden lied with 24 each.
There was great joy in Victoria
lacrosse circles on Saturday last when
the Victoria lacrosse team defeated the
i'encouyerites by six goals to four. The
visitors came over confident of an easy
thing—which it' must be admitted they
lave enjoyed when playing Victoria for
seme time pnst—but the Victorians played the game of their lives, aud came out
ou top. The result is confirmation of
the idea many people have thai' a
lacrosse game is one of the most uncertain things in the realm of sport. On
previous form nobody could have expected Victoria to win, and now we shall begin to look for more victories. It is
'luito possible that Victoria may have a
championship bunch by next year,
■■specially as many of the veterans of the
N'ew Westminster team appear likely to
I'lako this their last season. The Inst
quarter of Saturday's game was rattier
rough, but Referee Geo. Snider kept his
venther eye open. Tho goals were
•-'lored as follows. Victoria: While, 2;
Maker, 2; West, 1; Sargison, 1. Vancouver: Douglas, 1; Cao, 1; Godfrey, 1;
Matheson, 1.
The annual tournament of fhe Victoria
Lawn Tennis Club wns concluded nt the
euiinencenienit of Ihe week wilh some
fairly well contested finals. The chief
event of the tournament was the men's
championship, which wns won by Cnpf,
Wright, who defeated Mr. B. P.
Schwengers after some hard gnmes. The
captain's victory wns popular, although
Mr, Schwengers wns not in his best
firm owing to nn accident earlier in the
dey. Mrs. Cole sustained her claim to
the Indies' championship    by defeuting
her challenger, Miss M. Pitts, G-3, 0-1.
M.-ss Pitts, however, won tho ladies'
single handicap. The ladies' doubles
wire won by Mrs. Cole and Mrs. La'ng-
ley, who defeated fhe Misses Pitts, 0-3,
8-0. This was by no means an easy
v.'ctory. Messrs. R. H. Pooley and J.
A. Rifliet won the men's doubles, defeating Messrs. B. P. Schwengers nnd
F. A. Macrae, C-4, 4-6, 6-2. Miss A.
Bell and Capt. Wright won the mixed
doubles after beatt'ng Miss V. Pooley
rod Mr. R. H. Pooley. 0-4, 0-2.   Mr. S.
G. Wilson won the nieu's singles handicap, and the mixed doubles handicap
went to Miss Wason and Mr. J. A.
Uithet. These latter events were won
fOine weeks ago. The prizes were given
away by Mrs. Pooley.

Subscriptions towards the stock of the
company which proposes to build an electric railway from Chilliwack to New
Westminster are reported to be coming
in well. In Chilliwack alone about $25,-
000 already has been subscribed. This
is an index to the prosperity of the fertile
Chilliwack valley, and also to the progressive spirit of the people. The railway should! prove a splendid thing for the
country to be traversed, and also a profitable investment.

Some very interesting letters by the .
composer of Carmen, who in his day
was also one of the "Roman Prize"
winners, are printed for the first time
in the second June number of Die Musik
(Berlin). In one of these Bizet thus
sums up his opinions ou Italian computers: "After reserving two-thirds of
Norma, four numbers of the Puritnni,
und three of La Souiianibula, two acts
of Rigoletto, one act of 11 Trovatore, and
perhaps onilialf of La Travaliata, lidding to these Don Pasquale, you may
throw the rest on the rubbish henp! As
regnrds Rossini, he hns written his Wil-
linm Tell, his sun—the Barber of Seville,
one net of Otello—for the sake of these
we will pardon him lor his horrible
Semiramide uud all his other sins. . .
Verdi is uo longer Italian; he wants to
play 'Wagner.' . . . There's neither
head nor tail to Hint. . . . He hns lost
his old faults, but without retaining his
good qualities. . . He is anxious to
create u 'style,' nnd doesn't get beyond
mere pretensions. . . lt is intolerable.
. . absolutely deplorable." Concerning Gounod. Bizet says iu another of
mese letters: "Gounod wants to go to
Rome to be ordained. . . He is completely crazy! His latest compositions
are pitiable." All of these letters were
addressed lo a young composer, Paul
Lacoiube, who wanted to take lessons of

Tennis, Teas and Tournaments.
Various Matters of Feminine Interest Duly Discussed.
By " Babette "
Dear Jladge,—All last week the elite
of Victoria thronged to the tenuis courts,
iu fact each day seemed to bring forth
ncre smartly dressed women and sporty
ycung men than t'he proceeding. Of
course every oue turns out iu their best
'bib and tucker" to the tournament; it is
the thing to do. Even the near-sighted
old ladies are present in their heavy
biack silk gowns, their chief occupation
being to gossip furiously about "so und
sj," whom they manage to distinguish hi
tin- distance. The portly old gentleman
U also there; he is perhaps u little hurd
of hearing, and grumbles to himself about
the umpire not singing out the score
loud enough. However he takes grent
interest in I'he game, and gives- voice
with the multitude iu the usuul "ah!"
wheu a particularly telling and clever
stroke is played, or a mournful "oh!"
when a brilliant smash goes into the net.
Pioud and anxious relatives are much
in evidence, and usually arrive a quarter
of an hour before time, to be sure of a
"good seat" to watch their dear ones perform. Aud, oh, the black looks they occasionally cast iu tho direction of the
linesmen are terrific, especially when he
happens to give a decision in favor of the
"wrong side." Then they nre "perfectly
cei tain that the ball was in" or "out," as
tire case may be. But uow I kuow that
you are longing to hear about some of the
pietty frocks worn on these occasions, so
I will fell you of one thut 1 thought particularly charming.
It was of a soft moss-rose shade of
pink crepede chine, the full skirt guther-
e.l to the waist aud trimmed with narrow
frills at the foot. Three rows of the
frills were put ou straight, and three
rows above them in festoons. The little,
slort, square holers wus narrowly tucked in small squares, und it was opeu down
the sido nnd bnck scums, connected by
small, flat silk bows uud gold studs. The
embroidered batiste shirt was crossed by
bands of the embroidery continued below
the pointed silk belt, and which were
edged with very narrow pink silk pleut-
iigs. On the puffed elbow sleeves bands
ol similar embroidery were crossed to
uake a little point at the bnck of the
The hat to go with this dress was of
the popular Tuscan straw, with the wide
beef-down back, aud wns bordered with
ecru tulle tucked und folded.   An enormous piuk ostrich feather was brought
all   round    the    crown   and    threaded
tl rough the brim, the tip fulling on the
hair to one side, near tho back.    The
bandeau was of the ecru lulle surinount-
eo by a Louis XV. pattern worked out
in little Pompadour roses nnd green foliage.   White muslin dresses    were very
popular, and    are    always dninty  nnd
p:t-tty.   Ono especiully I noticed wus in
t pen embroidery, consisting   entirely of
round holes.    The skirt wns    trimmed
villi  three frills  of  Valenciennes lace,
Slid was mounted ou shell-pink silk. The
pretty little bodice wns full in the frout,
and caught into a folded   nnd    pointed
sctiu belt mulching tlio pink foundation,
and (he yoke und neckband were of lnce,
with a few little lint   pink   sntiu bows.
The lnrge girlish hat was composed of
fillls of Valenciennes   luce,   and round
the large crown soft shell-pink sntin ribbon wns   twisted.   A   semi-wreath   of
roses and green foliage was laid on, the
roses peaked up to a point on one side.
The   bandeau    was     of     pink    satin,
with bows of the snme, and wide strings
to match were    tied    under   the   chin.
Many of thu latest model hats, Sludge,
lave a very wide bent-down bnck, nud
look very ugly in    the   hand, but very
smart and becoming on i'he hend, provided the hend be coiffurcd in a style to
suit the shape of the   hat, a point frequently forgotten    by  mnny Indies.    A
novelty in n crenm straw hut, is one flint
resembles a lurgo Breton sailor with n
shrllow brim; it is    turned    somewhat
brusquely up at the side, aud is exceedingly smart in its simple wny.    It hns
fclds of White muslin or lawn inside the
curve of fhe brim and just n knot where
it turns up at the side.   Very new also
nre tlie hats of different colored linens,
tho crowns adorned  with spotted lnwu
kirchiefs   folded    three-cornerwi.se,    tlie
ends being slnshed through nnd swathed
across the bandeau,  finishing ill a sort
of wheel rosetto on either side.   In blue
aid white ihis is a charming model, and
one can "see" other colors equally well
in one's mind's eye.    Linen dresses hnve
teen a good deal worn of late, not only
in the morning, but in the afternoon.
The art linens are now dyed in such
beautiful shades that' a dress made up of
any one of them ceases to be the plain
simple thing, which a linen dress form-
cily was. A very smart aud dressy linen
gown I saw the other day worn by an
American tourist. It was of olive-green
linen, cut out in sharp points round t'he
skirt, and bolero, over light green linen,
thi; effect was most artistic. Smaller
vandycks of the light green came in
nbout the cuffs and round the neck, nud
the skirt was of embroidered crenm
imtiste, cnught into nn olive green kid
belt, with buckie and clasp studded with
cut steel. The hat worn with this d'ress
v.as severe in style, and at fhe same
L'me chic. It was really so quaint that
I must describe it to you, Madge. It
wns of olive-green straw, sharply pointed
in front, like a torpedo, but' redeemed
from being a copy of this shape by the
hitle dome-shaped crown, nnd the back
turned up aud dinged in lo make a hollow in the centre. Tiie trimming wns
utterly origiuai. Covering one side was
a long wing of the exact shade of the
straw, the small feathers at' the top com-
\L(. over the front of the hat and covering the outside of the brim for a little
i pace. The opposite side of the brim
was overlaid by half a kid belt, similar
t'o that worn with the dress, the buckle
nnd slide being used, and all fiat to the
side of the hat.
Tha fad of the moment, my dear
Madge, is to have in your possession an
iifternoon Japanese,, tea service, tray and
11 complete, and 1 assure you nothing
is more dainty. Weiler Bros, have a
very choice stock in this line, that has
Ictely arrived from Japan. Their papier
ir.ache trays1 finely finished iu black and
gold, or in one color, red or green, are
really quite the nicest I have ever seen.
One has such a choice iu shapes, too;
tley are either round, square or oblong,
tad in all sizes. As for their assortment
of "Jap china," it is simply "par excellence." Ono tea service that' I particularly admired, was iu pale blue and
gold, the pattern was simply a mass of
pole blue daaisies on a background of
gold, and the tea-pot, sugar bowl and
cream jug to match, were such pretty
and quaint shapes. I little wonder at'
th... tourists making Weiler Bros, such a
"rendezvous," when they have such a
display of fascinating china, etc.
Tha "bicycle face" has long since been
relegated to tho limbo of antiquated
jokes, but it's successor has arrived on
rhe scene in the shape of the motoring
complexion, the keen breezes, dust and
sun incidental to this popular sport be-
irg decidedly inimical to the preservation
of a delicate skin. Terry & Marett have

My drawing room is ng*in "topsy
turvy," I am rearranging everything,
'ihis time the cause of such disturbance
is that I wish to find a suitable situation
for my new music cabinet that I purchased a few days ago at Fletcher Bros.
Ik-ally, Madge, if is a dream, and like
tin rest of my drawing room furniture is
of rosewood. Whnt an improvement on
Ihe old-fashioned music racks are the
handsome and useful cabinets of to-dny.
I often wonder why more people do uot
invest in these necessary articles of furniture, nf least I consider a cabinet of
this kind necessary. I have frequently
visited beautifully furnished drawing
rotnjs, and invariably havo I seen the
song books and sheet music piled up on
n stool or chnir, and sometimes on the
lioor, this to my mind looks most untidy.
Now, Jladge, "adieu," the afternoon

A Pennsylvania paper snys: "Boston,
populous Boston, may properly be described
as the town In which hundreds of thousands
dally live, move and have their beans,"
London, July 25th, 1905.
Dear Victoria:—I must apologize for
the lateness  of my letter,  but  I have
been busy and unable lo sit down with
my pen.    The season,   in   spite of all
gloomy prognostications, seems to have
been   very   gay—plenty    of    balls    for
the young ladies and other gaieties besides.   For instance, the other day a girl
whose father is in the Guards, told nie
she had beeu to 28 balls aud hud been
nsked to 34, and wus even then rushing
bnck to Lady Penrhyn's ball, which must
surely be the very  last of the sen son.
Mortimer House is an  excellent house
for a ball, for besides being large it bus
n garden where one can wander, iu between the dances.    The chief event in
the beginning of the month was the state
ball    at    Buckingham Palace.    Everything was very well done as usuul.    1
did not go myself but some of my family
did.   They said the Queen was looking
wonderfully well aud beautiful as usual,
though older.    Her Majesty danced  iu
the square dances.   A court ball is not
for general dancing; for one thing there
is very little room,   lt is generally taken
us a grand spectacle.   At oue end of the
room is a circle where the royal family
sit on a  raised dais,  and  in  front of
which they dance.    There are four eu-
trnnces into the ballroom, which is large.
At one end is a gallery where the musicians in scarlet and gold play.   On each
side are seats rising in tiers for the general pubiic if they are minded to rest.
But you can do as you like, walk, sit,
dance or stare at the royal family.   The
ball commences with a royal quadrille,
sometimes the grent of the laud nre included, and this takes place directly nfter the royalties have "processed" iuto
the room.   The scene is really very splendid, all the men are in full uniform, orders, decoratious and medals, and every
woman has on her best frock und her
most beautiful jewels, and as there are
some very wonderful diamonds in England it is a magnificent display.    The
Queen usually wears a crown, or rather
an all rouud tiaru of diamonds, a dog
collar of the same, and bracelets uud
ropes of pearls, besides innumerable orders, some of which are set iu precious
stones, so that she is not easily out-shone,
especially as she has a very distinguished carriage.   Then there are representatives of nearly  every  regineut  in  the
British army, besides those of the Indian and the Egyptian   armies,   sailors
and diplomats of every country, privy
councillors and official people generally.
So that, as you can imagine, the scene
is full    of    splendor and variety.    At
twelve the band plays "God Save the
King," and the royal family, preceded by
the great officers of state, go to supper.
After that the general public hurry off
to eat, too.   The food is always excellent, aud the fine gold plate makes a
dazzling display, though for my part I
must say I prefer silver plate.
After supper the royalties process
back again and there is more dancing,
aud at two o'clock the National Anthem
is played again and they leave the bull-
room. You all then hurry awny and get
your carriages. This is very well managed, as by a series of telephone calls
the carriages are called «P and there
are numerous otlicinls in magnificent uniforms and liveries to help. This is
rather a long description, but 1 thought
it might interest you.
A small dance was given by the
Duchess of Sutherland at Stafford
House, which is one of the most magnificent houses in London. The Kiug
and Queen, at the lnst moment, signified
their intention of beig present, so that
the Duchess had to send round to the
clubs and houses where people were giving dinners for the dance to warn the
men that orders, medals aud breeches
and silk stockings must be worn. Even
then some didn't know and appeared
without. The King, however, overlooked it, but as a rule he is very particular
and will notice anything that is not quite
correct. There was an interesting gathering, painters, poets, authors, bishops,
actors and smart society persons, and it
is said to have been a most successful
entertainment. The Duchess is one of
the best looking people in England, and
always is beautifully dressed.
Lord Leconfield gave a ball in his line
house in Chesterfield gardens, and there
was a great gathering of the Wyndham
family and everybody wns there.

There have been many concerts. If
you are well off there is nothing people
appreciate more thuu a good concert; so
that the "nouveau riche" should bear it
iu mind thai if they want to get into society they should give the best music

will uot really care a rap for music, and
a great portion of them will nut know
one note from another, but Ihal caiiuol

lt is the most expensive mode of entertaining, hut it is also the most popular.
Lady Jersey has had some of her charming garden parties at Osterley, which is
a line Georgian house filled with art
treasures, and which has some of the
famous "Hose du Burri" Gobelin tapestry worth its weight in gold. Th

Lord's was, as usual, crowded for the
Eton and Harrow mutch. Jiost people
either have or huve had a relation at
either one or the other of the two
schools, though 1 know of a great nuiu
ber of foolish people who go because
they think it is smart uud who huve no
connection with either place, lt was
one of the most exciting mutches that
have ever taken place. Everyone
thought Eton would win, but Harrow
did some fine batting aud it ended in a
draw. The Eton boys always play a
brilliant game, but Hurrow is more sure
though not so interesting to watch.
The latest fashionable marriages have
been those of the Queen's two maids of
honor, viz: the Hon. Dorothy Viviuu to
JIajor-Geueral Haig, uud Jliss Mury

ceremony took pluce ut 1 o'clock in the
Chupel Boyul. Those present were the
King and Queen, the royal household
