sufficient to tide him over the first
year is a fool. Second, that the Colonist and the Times, with their beautiful poetical illustrated articles on the
Pacific Coast as the Kldorado of the
home-seeker, have more misery to
answer   for   than  they wot of.
The Week has said many a time
and will keep on saying it, that it is
the last place for an Englishman without capital to come to, unless as in
the case of the men brought out by
the Salvation Army, he has an engagement contracted for in advance.
"Vancouver Island is not and never
will be a country for the poor settler,
the cost of clearing and of cultivating,
to say nothing of the difficulty in
marketing, are entirely beyond the
compass   of  limited means.
-A.11 the above is a little out of my
ordinary rut, but it deals with lounging under two aspects, the voluntary    and   the   involuntary.
Quite a little excitement has been
created this week by the wholesale
prosecution of speeding autoists.
Those who are kicking should remember that the public demanded the
action and the authorities would have
been delinquent if they had not responded. Automobiles are a luxury,
when they are as cheap in Victoria
as in London, they will become almost a necessity, and by that time
they will be under complete control.
Meanwhile the few who are lucky
enough to possess one should understand that the possession does not
carry with it any title to disregard
the public convenience. A chauffeur
should be just as amenable to ill"
City By-laws as the driver of ;i carriage or delivery wagon. Hitherto
this has not been the case, and
neither the private owner nor the
garage keeper havc been willing to
acquiesce voluntarily on such restrictions    as    have   been   imposed   for   the
public service. The problem has been
solved, as all problems are solved, in
England, by an absolutely strict and
impartial enforcement of the law.
This has driven the cult to establish
private grounds where racing and
speeding can be indulged in without
let or hindrance. There is no other
way out of the difficulty, and if the
votaries of an expensive hobby wish
to indulge their pastime in their own
way it is a very easy matter for them
to acquire grounds for the purpose,
but the time has gone by even in
Victoria when they will be allowed
to inconvenience the general public,
to say nothing of risking life and
limb, for the mere purpose of gratifying a propensity which apparently
is only too apt to run to extremes.
In spite of numerous duties of a
more serious character I have done
a little lounging on my own account
this week in the Gorge Park. A
month or so ago I paid a flying trip
and afterwards dilated on the attractions of the Japanese Tea Gardens,
but they then lacked the finishing
touches which have since been supplied, and now under the glimmer of
the electric light they furnish as pretty an Oriental picture as can be
found—outside Japan.
Clifford Denliam is also busy with
his splendid Bioscope pictures. These
are much better than last season and
are attracting large crowds already.
The orchestra has been strengthened
and affords delight to the crowds who
find thc Gorge Park just an ideal spot
to spend an evening. A little later
the bathing will come, and before we
know  it  we shall bc literally in the
On Tuesday thc Driving Park will
be the scene of the first day's horse
racing this year. Arrangements have
been made by the Victoria Racing
Association, a newly formed organization, of which Hon. Richard McBride is Honorary President, to give
a live days' meet, and judging from
the outlook it will prove a grand
success. There are at present sufficient
horses at the track to fill races for
a month's racing, but the local club
will be satisfied with five days. Now
that the arrangements are completed
it is up to the local lovers of the
horse to show their appreciation by
attending in good numbers. Purses
to the value of $5,000 are being given
and to secure this it is necessary that
every day should see a large attendance. Among the horses at the track
arc some of the best on thc Pacific
Coast and four which will start in
the Seattle Derby. In obtaining this
class of horses the management has
eclipsed all previous records and
some excellent races should result.
It is not only the number of horses
that are coming but the directors of
thc King County Fair Association of
Seattle have announced their intention of spending at least a few days
here. This should give Victoria a lot
of good advertising as the results of
thc racing will bc published in every
racing journal in the United States
which should reach thousands of
people. The races start at 2 o'clock
each day and the City Band has been
engaged to furnish music. With good
weather there should he a large attendance.
Ofri
Jcycs—Did you have a good day's
sport?
Brann—Splendid.
Jeyes—How did my dog work for
you?
Brann—Wonderfully. He led me
directly to the poultry store. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1908.

Let It Be Soon.
When will the people get a show,
Let it be soon, let it be soon,
To  know   those  things   they  ought  to
know,
Let It be soon, let it be soon;
When will they see how tight the knot
The corporations big have got
tpon the string that ties the lot,
Oh, let It be soon.
When will a plentiful supply,
Let It be soon, let it be soon,
Of water pure and clear be nigh,
Let lt be soon, let It be soon.
When garden hose can ever play
(Not merely minutes every day)
And low the rates we'll have to pay,
Oh, let it be soon.
When will electric meters tire,
Let it be soon, let It be soon,
From  climbing higher,  higher,
Let it be soon, let it be soon;
When will poor people needing light
Not Hnd it so high—out of sight-
Nut  unattainable—not  quite,
Oh. let it be soon.
When will our public streets be freed,
Let It be soon, let it be soon;
From dirt and dust and grass and weed,
Let it be soon, let it be soon;
When  will those hills and hollows be
Levelled  up and down  a wee,
Conditioned so that all may see,
Oh,  let it be soon.
When will our rentals take a drop,
Let it he soon, let lt be soon,
A sharp, decisive, sudden Hop,
Let it be soon, let It he soon;
Or  if  the  landlords  rents  will  rise
Assessors wide should ope their eyes
Nor   valuations   minimise,
Oh, let it be soon.
When   will   that   sign,  "For   Sale,   For
Sale."
Let it bc soon, let it be soon.
Seen everywhere except on jail,
Let it he soon, let It be soon,
Come down, and  In  Its  wretched  stead
He something more to cheer be read,
Some trace of life,—not all as dead,
Oh, let lt be soon.
When will our boosters cease to boost,
Let It be soon, let it he soon,
For chickens oft come home to roost,
Oft too soon, oft too soon,
When will they try some truth to tell
In boosting what they've got to sell,
Prevaricators  go  to—well
Oh, let It be soon.
When will our suffragettes gain,
Let it be soon, let It be soon,
For man Is only vain—just vain,
Let It be soon, lat It be soon,
When woman wears those things—those
what?
That specialise tlie sterner lot,
It may be well—it may be not,
ltut let it lie soon.
When will this doggerel hut end,
Let It be soon, let lt be soon;
I  scarcely thought so much I'd penned,
Let it lie soon, let it he soon;
But   when   stray   thoughts   assail    thc
brain
Remove the load—relieve the strain—
Repeat,   then   cease,   tlie   old   refrain,
"Oh, let It be soon."

Comment.
The victory of the Victoria baseball team over the Knights of Columbus of Seattle will go down in the
annals of baseball as one of the most
marvelous victories that has ever fallen to the credit of any team. I am
bound to confess that at the end of
thc eighth innings I had conceded a
victory to the visitors and that such
was not the case is only due to thc
determination of every player on the
home team. It was a grand game
and the locals deserve great credit
for winning out. I am very sorry to
learn, however, that the local team
is at present in a very serious position
and it would not be surprising if the
club decided to disband. This is entirely due to the small number of
spectators who attend thc games. Unless there is a decided improvement
in this line for the next few games
there will be no more baseball for
Victoria this season. As I have already pointed out the club has gone
to considerable expense in getting
tilings into shape and today the game
stands the management several hundred dollars, and judging from the
past attendance there is very little
prospect of breaking even. As constituted until last week the team was
strong but owing to the financial
crisis it has been found necessary to
release Lang, at third base. Under
the arrangements on which he was
brought to Victoria thc club was to
secure a position for him or guarantee
him a salary. Despite the efforts of
the management no opening was
found and it was necessary for the
club to make good his salary. Owing to the small gates this has now
become impossible and he has been
released. He is a good player and
strengthens thc team considerably.
but the finances of the club would
not allow of it and lie had to be
dropped. There are one or two reasons to which this can be attributed.
The  first  is  that  Victorians  do not
desire ball. The second is the poor
car service. I can hardly believe thc
first and the second should be improved. If I am correctly informed
it is the intention of the club to play
another game and if there is no improvement in the attendance a dis-
bandment will take place. I sincerely hope not and it is up to the citizens
of this city to patronize the boys.
They are playing good ball and are
entitled to the support of every lover
of good, clean sport in this city, so
it is up to the fans to get busy.
This will be the third time I have
taken occasion to refer to the absence
of the Northwestern baseball scored
in the daily press. To many this is
a very small item but to the followers of the American game it is considerable. I have been informed that
it is impossible to secure this news,
but I can hardly understand this. I
know for a fact that the scores appear every day in the News-Advertiser of Vancouver and as yet I have
not heard of any breakage in either
the telephone or telegraph wires between Vancouver and this city, so I
can not realize how it is impossible
to secure the scores. The scores
from all thc Eastern leagues are published but not the Northwestern, and
I hope that it will not bc long until
these are also contained in the daily
sporting news.
I am very soi,;._»to learn that Fred
White had the misfortune to break a
bone in his ankle while practicing lacrosse last Monday evening. This is
very unfortunate. Fred, was very
anxious to give Victoria a winning
team and in his endeavours he turned
out with the boys on Victoria Day
and got severely roasted for his pains.
It was a low piece of business handing him a roasting after being coaxed
out by the management when it was
known that he was not in the best of
condition, and it is to his credit that
he responded to the call when asked i
to defend the Victoria colours. I
hope his injuries will not keep him
laid up for any length of time, but
we can hardly hope to see him in
uniform  again this  season.
The Victoria Cricket team celebrated a second victory on Saturday last
when the Seattle club met defeat at
thc hands of. the locals. As I have
already stated the locals are exceptionally strong and if my prediction
does not go wrong they will go
through the season without a defeat.
The Albions turned the tables on the
Garrison on Saturday winning a well
played match. With hoth local teams
playing good cricket the lovers of
the grand old game can depend on
seeing some fine cricket this season.

The Victoria Lacrosse team met defeat at the hands of the Maple Leafs
of Vancouver in the Terminal City
last Saturday, but it was a defeat of
which no team should bc ashamed.
As I have been given to understand
the locals played the Vancouver players to a stand still until the last
twenty minutes and then, to use a
street phrase, they went "up in the
air." This should not discourage thc
team and 1 expect this afternoon to
see thc boys in blue and white make
a good showing against the Red
Shirts of New Westminster. The
game will bc played on the new
grounds at the corner of Pembroke
and Cook streets, and I hope there
will be a good attendance.
I have to extend my hearty congratulations to "Bob" Peden, thc
popular southpaw of the local baseball team, and hope that Mr. and Mrs.
Bob may long be spared to enjoy the
good tilings of this life.
