The Editor's Review
Of Current Topics.
■Che Seal Issues.
At, the time of writing
the   conference   between
the   coal  operators  and
Ihiners of East Kootenay and Western Al-
Iierta is still in session, although it is
llmost certain that before publication a
■ modus vivendi" will have been found
Ind work resumed, at least temporarily.
If that happy result is attained, an op-
lortunity will be provided to negotiate a
lermanent  agreement  and  at the  same
ne to test the efficiency of Mr. Lemieux'
Let.    In this connection it must be con-
Jsded that the appointment of Sir. Wm.
Jlulock as the third member of the Con-
■liution Board, is a good omen, since his
lersonal character and public position will
|i(.ow the proceedings Avith a dignity and
leigh't altogether favourable to a satisfac-
Try settlement and in any event reassur-
Rg to the public confidence.   At the mo-
lent The Week is not desirous of saying
laything which  could  possibly  militate
rcainst a truce.    If the men return to
lork, a series of articles will appear in
lir columns from a coal expert dealing
Ithaustively with the whole question of
liel in the West, the best means of ensur-
Iig an adequate supply at all times, and
licidentally with the economic and legal
Ipects of the labour question as they af-
Ict coal mines.   At the present moment
I may render a service by directing pub-
1 attention to matters which are not genially known, Avhich have a vital connec-
Jm with the subject and without a due
Insideration of which it is impossible to
lrive at a correct conclusion.    The first
1 these is that the official representatives,
Ith of the coal operators and the miners,
Ive been guilty of sharp practice in what
"Albertan" denominates "jockeying
. position."   In other words they have
fen more intent upon playing the game
hording to the rules of poker, which is
mire game of bluff, than in seriously
Eking a way out of the difficulty.   Mr.
pnieux stated in the House on Tuesday
it he had been inundated with telegrams
fm both sides, and plainly intimated that
chief burden of their cry was one of
lusation and recrimination.    The only
_nent  which  any  public  journal  is
■led upon to make is that men who are
liable of descending to as low a level as
Js, and indulging in the commonest tricks
[the professional political heeler, when
ly are charged with the grave responsi-
Ity of advising their colleagues in the
e of an industrial crisis, are totally
it to occupy the position in which they
-e heen placed, and should be removed.
|s hardly likely that such a happy result
Jl be achieved immediately, therefore it
Iwell for the public to know the kind
rame that is being put up, in order that
|nay be assessed at its true value.   The
important point is that by common
Isent there is no hope of permanent
ce as long as the making or carrying
of an agreement is in the hands of
Isident Lindsay of the Coal Owners' As-
lation.    On this subject The Week is
to have some prejudice; it therefore
ttes thc opinion expressed above from
|editorial columns of thc Nelson News,
Daily Canadian, Thc Moyie Leader,
I the Kamloops Standard, These papers
|ny rate must be regarded as unbiased,
seeking only to protect the great in-
|sts affected by a strike, and they are
lit in this expression of opinion.    It is
Illy necessary to say that the miners
haye long ago spoken with no uncertain
voice to the same effect, and they allege
that more than one strike in the past has
resulted from breach of faith and consequent loss of confidence in this man. The
next point to bear in mind is that while
there are minor details such as have to
be regulated in the formation of any wage
scale, and which can only be arranged between experts, there are only two important issues at stake in the present contest,
that of an increase of wages and an eight-
hour day " bank to bank." Of the former
matter little need he said, because, after
running the bluff of demanding a reduction
of wages on the Sth of May, the ill-advised
operators expressed their willingness to
concede a 10 per cent, increase, a ' volte
face " as remarkable as is sometimes experienced in political warfare. It may,
therefore, be taken for granted that there
will be no serious opposition to this, and
that any minor adjustment of rates will
not affect the general increase. Here
again the operators have been guilty of
misrepresentation in trying to convey the
impression to the public that the men's
earnings were very much greater than is
really the case. The Calgary Herald, an
operators' organ, spoke of men earning
' $1,500 a year " on an average "; the Fernie Ledger, which is in a position to ascertain the facts, has carefully investigated
this and in a three-column article published on April 20th, carefully analyses
the pay-roll at Fernie and Coleman, and
conclusively shows that the average earnings of the miners, who are the highest
paid men, did not exceed $78.00 per
month, or $3 per day for full time, but the
men never work full time, and the Ledger
concludes that $750 a year is a high average for the two districts named. Of course
these figures will be looked into by the
Conciliation Board, and as The Week has
previously pointed out, one of the most important contributions they can possibly
make to the settlement of industrial disputes is to give the public authentic information. In this connection another fact
should he mentioned, viz., that the standard cutting rates paid to miners at Fernie
of 50c and 55c per ton, are the same as
were first established there when the mines
were opened in 1897. It has never been
contended that they started at too high a
level, in which case it is obvious that the
men are entitled to a substantial increase
since the purchasing power of money in
the district, or to put it in other words, the
cost of living, has been varied against the
workmen lo the extent of 25 per cent, or 30
per cent. Before leaving this question of
wages, let it be said that a coal miner's
occupation is different from that of any
other worker. He is in a class by himself, tlie hardships, and the risks of his
employment exceed those of any other, ln
the Roman Catholic Cemetery at Nanaimo,
to quote the graphic words of a well known
member of Parliament, " 75 per cent, of
the men buried there died witli their boots
nn," and of the men buried in the Protestant Cemetery at the same place, 47 per
cent, shared a like fate. An examination
of the death roll at Fernie would reveal a
similar condition, and when the public are
nsked to judge upon the adequacy of the
earnings of a conl miner, they should take
this into account, and remember that his
wage is a payment not only for labour but
too often for life. On the other great
iss-ue, tliat of the eight-hour day, it is diffi
cult to speak in moderation, because it is
the law in British Columbia, and would
havc been the law in Alberta by this time
if the Government of the latter Province
had not broken faith with the miners' representatives and failed to give legislative
effect to their promise. An eight-hour day
bank to bank, which means counted from
the mouth of the shaft or entry, is now all
but universally conceded. There is no
favourable condition in the Alberta coal
mines which entitles them to be differentiated from those in B. C. The attempt
to postpone the concession is doomed to
failure because it is a retrograde movement, and ooposed to the whole trend of
mining legislation. The Week has no hesitation in predicting that the permanent
resumption of work will be absolutely impossible if the operators persist in their
present attitude on this question. From
the above remarks it --.vill readily be seen
that the whole question as far as the operators is concerned, is one of cost, and here
again it is only fair to say that the public
do not possess reliable information. It
is not correct, as has been represented, that
mine owners are making large profits; indeed, it is not true in any single case.
This is due to the following circumstances:
First, that capital outlay has in most instances been excessive; secondly, that
western conditions were not well understood when original estimates were made,
and the cost of materials in particular has
been vastly higher than was expected;
thirdly, the unparalleled prosperity which
Canada and the United States have enjoyed during the last four or five years,
and the industrial expansion resulting
therefrom have created an unprecedented
demand for labour, and greatly enhanced
its value. On the other hand, exceptional
conditions have prevented the operators
from securing an excessive price for their
product, the circumstances are not to be
in any way regretted, as the expansion of
thc Canadian West depends upon cheap
fuel, but what between Governmental and
Railway control of prices, operators have
not been able to secure an advance commensurate with the increased cost. There
is no doubt that the men will get their increase in wages; there is no doubt that
they will get their eight-hour day bank
to bank; there is equally no doubt that the
consumer will have to pay the increase
which this will make in the cost of production. This increase in the case of those
mines which are already operating on the
eight-hour system will not exceed 10c per
ton, to those who will bc forced to adopt
the eight-hour system, it will for a few
years mean an increased cost of 25c a ton,
and there cannot be a doubt that there is
not a man in the Canadian AYcst who
would not pay this comparatively trifling
advance rather than be subjected to the
personal inconvenience and loss which have
often resulted from the strikes and lockouts of the past, and are just as certain
to occur in the future unless a remedy can
be found. In this connection The Week
is a strong advocate for the cancellation of
that clause in the charter of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Co., which limits the selling price of their coal to $2 a ton; even if
the clause were effective, which it has
never been, it is unfair, since it allows of
no elasticity in the wages schedule which
should be governed to some extent by selling price. It would be better for all
parties if this handicap were removed, and
the Company allowed to compete on equal
terms with other producers. As long as
the present system continues, the Company
will always be in a position to proclaim
that it is impossible to advance wages be
cause they cannot advance the selling price.
There will be no permanent solution of the
wages difficulty in connection with coal
mining in Canada until a sliding scale is
adopted similar to that which was introduced in South Wales more than 25 years
ago, by " Mabon," under which the men
share in a fixed percentage in any increased selling price which the operators
secure and under which their wages fall if
needs be to a fixed minimum on the contrary. Since this system was adopted
South AVales lias had no strikes whatever,
although in other parts of England where
there is no sliding scale there have been
frequent and most disastrous strikes.
These, however, are lessening as the principle of the sliding scale is spreading. It
is a just principle, in fact the only just
principle, in that it secures to the miner a
pro rata wage and insures him a living
wage as a minimum. Tliere are many
olhcr aspects of the present dispute which
will bear investigation and which will be
fully ventilated during the next few weeks,
but the above will furnish food for reflection, and should be carefully studied by
all who desire to arrive at a just estimate
of a vital question. There is one significant
fact which it would be well for the operators in particular to bear in mind, which
is that without a solitary exception the
press of Western Canada has during the
last week demanded Government operation of the mines in thc public interest if
there is any delay in effecting an amicable
settlement. It lias been wisely pointed
out that the public interest is greater even
than vested interest, and that the people
will not brook a policy whicli deprives
them of one of the prime necessaries of
life. It will be a drastic step, one which
all moderate men would deprecate and yet
one to whicli all will subscribe, if the operators are not wise enough to abandon their
present tactics and to see to it that the production of fuel is resumed instanter.
A Business
Session.
Parliament is prorogued,
ily for six weeks the
and after running stead-
Legislative Mill has ceased grinding until January, 1908. The
Session has been in every sense a satisfactory one, both Government and Opposition
have devoted themselves to the discharge
of their constitutional duties, the former
has submitted a mass of useful legislation,
some of it perhaps not very well digested,
thc Opposition in complete oblivion of its
tactics of last Session has abandoned a
policy of personal abuse and slander to
exercise the functions of legitimate criticism. On the University Bill in particular Mr. Macdonald and his small but compact army made a strenuous and not discreditable fight. Tliere wore weaknesses
in the measure which they were quick to
point out, and many amendments were
made to which they contributed. Rarely,
if ever, in thc history of thc B. C. Legislative Assembly has a Session been more
thoroughly devoted to business. It is also
worthy of comment that the tone of the
debates has been uniformly upon a high
level, the only notable exception to this
is in the case of Comrade Hawthornthwaite whose recent political affiliation
finds him unchanged, an Ishmaelite whose
hand is against every man, the vaporing
demagogue who sometimes accidentally
says a good thing, but who in the main
works off volumes of hot air to no purpose; a veritable twentieth century Gra-
tiano with his grain of wheat to his bushel
of chaff, "and his infinite deal of nothing."

I
There has been one serious evil
brought to my notice during the past
week, and that is in connection with
the schools. As to the responsible
parties, I care not who they be; they
may be members of the School Board
or they may be the principals of the
schools; but whoever they be, they
certainly need a little teaching themselves. Measles is one of the most
dangerous diseases from which children can suffer, though parents very
seldom recognize this fact. The danger does not arise from the measles,
but from the complications which usually take the form of pneumonia.
The Lounger does not as a rule indulge in a paragraph of woful sympathy, but in this case he feels that he
must. There was one case of a boy,
very well known to The Lounger, and
very dear to him, whose mother deliberately had him put in the same
bed as his next eldest brother while
the latter was suffering from measles.
Thc second boy took measles and contracted pneumonia, and died. That's
all there is to it. Do you wonder
that I am surprised at the supineness
of our School Board in not closing
up the schools in the districts where
this disease is so prevalent?
I can't help thinking that the attitude taken by parents in this respect
is only characteristic of Canadian
opinion on most subjects which affect
their own personal selves. God grant
that I am wrong; but I doubt it. I do
think that the leading characteristic of this country, and with it I
will include the United States, is
Selfishness (with a very big "S"). 1
have no hesitation in challenging
members (native born) of cither country to dispute this fact. I do not dispute the fact that the average European has the quality of selfishness
well displayed, but I contend that he
does not display it as much as thc
ordinary native-born Canadian or
American. I will willingly uphold this
argument on any platform, but unfortunately I cannot offer to defend it by
force of arms, because being very
short-sighted I have to wear glasses;
obviously I can't box with my glasses
on, and I am sorry to say that if 1
take them off I can't see my opponent.
However, readers, this serious writing is as painful to my feelings as I
hope it is to yours. Let us therefore
discuss other matters.
I am sorry to say that my few
remarks last week were productive
rather of evil than good. The poultry yard just outside my window has
evidently engaged an orchestra to assist them in their musical efforts. The
orchestra consists of a bugle and a
kettle drum. The result may be better imagined than described. In addition a choir has been hired, which
choir is composed of two or possibly
three Chinese children, who sing, all
in different keys, and certainly all sing
different songs to the accompaniment
of thc said instruments and the noise
of the said poultry yard.
Do you wonder, faithful readers,
that The Lounger is said to have
shown more grey hairs during the
past month than any other man in
town?
But to more cheerful things. Let us
discuss bright things, such as the sun
and mon; the stars and the earth
itself. The sunsets during the past
few days have been things to make
glad the heart of man; I have been
told, though I can hardly believe it,
that one man was so glad to se it
that he lent a friend a dollar. The
sun has been bright and warm; incidentally, I might remark, that suns
are usually warm if noly you can get
close enough to them. The stars
have also been very excellent lately,
and have indulged in some very good
shooting. Of comets I have had no
news, the Marconi system between
my office and Mars being slightly out
of repair.
But why should I trifle like this
when the world is full of turmoil on
thc question of gloves. Why do men
and women wear gloves?   Is it to en
hance the beauty of the hands, or is
it to hide their ugliness? I have an
idea that they are worn simply and
solely to keep the hands clean. I
wonder if I am right. There are all
sorts of gloves; driving gloves, which
are invariably worn by pedestrians;
kid gloves, worn by old men; black
gloves worn by people who are only
too glad to have the chance to wear
them; white gloves worn at dances by
young men who have not the courage
to refuse an invitation; long suede
gloves worn by young ladies with
spots on their arms. Oh, there are all
sorts of gloves, and they are the best
test of character in a man or woman
that I have come across. Gloves may
be whited sepulchres or painted images. However, enough about gloves.
Has it ever occurred to any of you
what useful people Insurances Companies are? They supply the world
with almanacks. Who ever say an
office yet with an almanack for which
it had paid money? Who ever yet entered an office and was not immediately confronted with a proposition
by which he could die and leave his
wife an heiress? Who, once more,
ever yet entered an office and did not
see that by burning down his home
he could double his capital? And yet,
in spite of the obvious advantages to
be obtained there have been all sorts
of attacks on Insurance Offices. What
would the offices all over the world
do if there were no Insurance Offices
to give them almanacks? Are there
no firms in our own Province of British Columbia which use Insurance
blotters? Why then should the world
at large agree to hound down a system which never does any harm to an
individual, unles he be fool enough to
trust in it, and which will give him
free gratis and for nothing a pretty
picture to hang on his wall, making
his clients believe that he has a connection with a world-wide concern.

The Grateful Snake.
A Chicago man told this story,
therefore you do not need to believe
it.
"I have at home," said he, "a rattlesnake whose life I once saved, and
I haven't the slightest doubt that it
realises it. I ran across it when it
was stretched out stiff and cold and
freezing to death. Taking it home,
I thawed it out, and to my surprise
it seemed quite tame, so I permitted
it to remain in the house, and it
roamed where it pleased.
"One night last week I was awakened by my wife, who had heard a
noise downstairs. I listened, and
sure enough there was some sort of
struggle going on beneath us. Snatching up a revolver, I crept downstairs
and into the room. Imagine my surprise 1 By the dim light from the
street I saw that snake with its body
tightly wound around a burglar and
its tail sticking out of the window,
rattling for a policeman."
Prof. Weininger on Women.
A woman's demand for emancipation and her qualification for it are
in direct proportion to the amotmt of
maleness in her.
Those so-called 'women" who have
been held up to admiration in the past
and present by the advocates of women's rights as examples of what
women can do, have almost invariably been what I have described as
sexually intermediate forms.
The greater articulation of the mental data in man is reflected in the
more marked character of his body
and face as compared with the roundness and vagueness of thc woman.
The impulse to lie is stronger in
woman, because, unlike that of man,
her memory is not continuous, while
her life is discreet, unconnected, discontinuous, swayed by the sensations
and perceptions of the moment instead of dominating them.
The diffused life, one of the most
fundamental qualities of the female
nature, is the cause of the impressibility of all women, their unreserved
and shameless readiness to shed tears
on the most ordinary occasions.

with them and be able to pity herself
more than she already does.
Self-pity is eminently a female characteristic.
The ego of a woman is the cause of
the vanity which is specific of woman.
Women, in spite of what Schiller
has said, have no dignity, and the
word "lady" was invented to supply
this defect.
The shamelessness and heartless-
ness of women are shown in the way
they talk of being loved.

In the North Country there is a
Court official who is as good a type
of the canny Scot as one would meet
anywhere. On one occasion an important witness failed to appear, and
the Magistrate was furious. "Why
isn't he here?" demanded the Magistrate. "It's his duty to be here.
Where is he?" The official, with true
Scottish canniness, replied: "Wecl,
I'll no say for that; but he's dead."

finish, it is highly valued, and the editor of The Week is both human
enough and frank enough to admit
that he likes it. The appreciation
comes in the form of a paragraph
from the Cranbrook Herald, and is
from the pen of "Old Man Simpson,"
who recently visited the Coast. The
sentiment, although too generous, is
well meant, and will help to counterbalance the delicate compliments of
the "Daily Canadian."
"William Blakemore, of the Victoria
Week, is becoming a prominent factor
in the affairs of Victoria, and is looked
upon as an important individual in
the counsels of the government. By
his ability as a writer* and his business shrewdness he has made a financial success of The Week, which occupies a permanent position among
Coast publications. We had a long
talk with Mr. Blakemore, and in all
of the privince there is not a man
better posted, better educated or more
polished in his manner than this gentleman."—The Cranbrook Herald.
Every one who has visited Lethbridge or the section of country between there and the Rockies knows
and respects Dr. Mewburn. During
the construction of the Crow's Nest
Railway his jurisdiction as consulting
doctor extended as far as Kootenay
Landing, and many were the hardships which he endured whilst travelling to and fro to attend to the
numerous calls of his clientele. For
some time Dr. Mewburn has been on
the sick list and a few months ago
had to go to St. Paul to be treated
for blood poisoning. It will be good
news throughout Southern Alberta to
learn that the doctor is convalescent
and will shortly return to Lethbridge
to resume his medical practice.
believes that they have hit it right.
Thc difficulty, however, is that nearly
all the land available for townsite
purposes is in the C. P. R. reserve,
and is not for sale, at present. When
the plans of that corporation are matured there will be something doing
at Alberni.
The Essington Sun is the latest
newspaper to be added to the list in
British Columbia. The first number
will be issued next month. Mr. W. J.
McKay of Vancouver, who has had a
long experience in various newspaper
enterprises, will be the publisher. He
was part owner of thc Atlin Claim
when it started publication.
Saanich lias achieved the distinc-
lon of sending the first boy to the
tuelph Agricultural College. His
|ame is Norman J. Shopland, who has
ast completed a very successful two
lears' course and who returned home

lire  on  the part  of the  college  au-
The Semi-Weekly Okanagan has
with its new Easter dress put on new
manners, and although it will never
be able to discuss political issues dispassionately, if it keeps on as recently
the public will be glad to miss the
rancour which for so long has marred
its editorial columns. Further, it is
now devoting itself with skill and energy to the legitimate advertising of
thc district, which after all is the best
work it could engage in.
History repeats itself, and in fact
has repeated itself many times, all
over the Western part of this continent. No sooner does the faintest
rumour of possible railway construction get started than there is a rush
of pioneers, land is staked, pre-emptions secured, or townsites located.
Then follows the inevitable boosting,
sale of town lots, time of suspense
and uncertainty, with one of two issues, either the lucky purchasers have
hit it right, and a town springs up to
become the future home of hundreds
or thousands of people, or the railway
is built through another valley, in
which case the investment is wiped
off. At the present moment Vancouver Island is on the qui vivc, for railway construction and land reclamation by the C. P. R, The quid mines
have selected Alberni as a likely place
to see speedy developments in this
direction, with the result that real estate values arc rising almost daily,
and the sleepy little paradise of the
West Coast is being exploited by real
estate agents.   In this case The Wcek
Hedley City is alive once more, the
reign of ice and snow is at an end,
the frozen flume is unlocked, water is
flowing and thc stamps arc dropping.
Succinctly stated, this covers the situation at the capital of the Upper
Similkameon. Activity at the Daly
Reduction Mill means prosperity for
the whole section, and it has been
sadly hampered by climatic conditions
last winter.
The Nelson Amateur Dramatic Society recently gave a performance of
"The Private Secretary" for the Chancel Fund of St. Saviour's Church. According to private accounts, the performance was highly creditable, and
from a financial standpoint entirely
satisfactory. It is amusing, however,
to read the different accounts of the
performance as given by the "Daily
Canadian" and the "Daily News." The
former measures by the professional
standard and declares it to have been
"not at all discreditable." Thc latter
damns it with faint praise, and is both
sarcastic and cynical in dealing with
the individual performers. One would
naturally think that thc criticisms
were independent, but as a matter of
fact both were written by the same
person.
There is nothing to indicate that
the following paragraph culled from
the editorial columns of thc Rossland
Miner is not original, and therefore
the acting editor of that paper is entitled to the credit of having said a
good thing and having said it well:
"Success declares him to bc a pretty
poor sort of man who loses courage
and fears to face the world just because he has made a mistake or a slip
somewhere, because his business
has failed, because his property has
been swept away by some general
disaster or because of some other
trouble impossible to avert. This is
the test of your manhood; how much
is there left in you when everything
outside is lost? If you lie down,
throw up your hands and acknowledge yourself worsted there is not
much in you. But if, with heart undaunted and face turned forward, you
refuse to give up or lose faith in
yourself, if you scorn to beat a retreat, you will show that the man left
in you is bigger than your loss, greater than your cross and larger than any
defeat."
The Week has received numerous
complaints from subscribers at Some-
nos as to non-dclivcry of their paper.
On investigating the trouble it was
discovered that the postoffice there
had been closed up more than a month
ago. a fact which suggests many reflections, which, however, can be
boiled down to two. Thc first is, did
The Week subscribers who were complaining know that thc post-office was
closed? The second is, if not, why
nut? In commenting upon this matter the Cowichan Leader declares that
a little influence exerted in thc right
quarter might lead to the reopening
of the office. If so, it is a pity that
thc effort is not made. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, APRIL 27 1907.

Business Men's Wives.
It is ciuite true the British woman
does not enter so largely into her husband's affairs as a French woman. It
is not necessarily a part of a man's
devotion to his wife to make of her
a sort of confidential clerk or private
secretary.—Queen.
Doctor's Certificate.
Undoubtedly an important factor in
hastening Rayner's reprieve was a
certificate, in the following terms, sent
to the Home Office by the doctor attending Mrs. Rayner:
88 King's-road, Camden-road, N.W.
I, the medical man in charge of
Mrs. Rayner, the wife of Horace
George Rayner, certify that, in my
opinion, unless her husband is immediately reprieved, neither she nor the
child will survive the coming confinement.
WILLIAM CREMIN,
L.R.C.S. and L.M.
On Monday Mrs. Rayner gave birth
to a little girl. Both mother and child
are progressing favorably.
Insatiable Pleasure Seekers.
Where pleasure is concerned the
British people are becoming insatiable.
As far as possible they adopt Lamb's
principles in business by going late
and leaving early, and where holiday-
making is involved they go early and
come back late.—Manchester Courier.

Mr. T.—"A 'Scarborough,' my love,

Red Flag of Distress.
An incapacity to blush is considered
a sign of hardened wickedness or of
absolute innocence; but when one
hangs out the red flag of distress for
nothing, one is in the painful position
of looking guilty without the satisfaction of being so.—Black and White.
Like the "Baby" Suffragette.
There are many people who would
see things in an entirely different light
if they sometimes had the privilege
of thinking over them in prison.—
World and His Wife.
Uneasy Germany.
It is useles to shut our eyes to the
fact that Germany under her present
rulers is not only uneasy herself, but
the cause of uneasiness in others. It
is not Great Britain alone that has
occasion to feel that a latent antagonism, at times bursting out into the
open, is going on all the time.—Justice.
Rival Heroines of Fiction.
The time is coming when the
trained nurse of the novel will take
the place of the governess. Governesses have been done to death by the
masters of fiction.—Nationa, New
York.
English Prejudice in Humour.
What a glaring gap there would be
in the comic literature of England if
one could take away everything based
on the parsimony of the Scotch, the
Donnybrook Fair proclivities of the
Irish, the blustering pretense of the
Yankees, and the all-round shortcomings of the French!—Outlook, New
York.
Reckless Sportswomen.
Women enter into various forms of
sport with a recklessness that appals
the average man. One woman with
a gun in her hand, and pleasantly
smiling the while, can reduce a party
of male friends into a group of terrified and pale-faced cowards, who look
as if they saw ghosts before them,
which they probably do—their own.—
Madame.

As the outcome of their investigations the German delegates have declared London to be 't'he best policed
city in the world."
During the last few years the London police have provided hints for
thc chief cities of the world. Special
missions havc come from France,
Russia, Switzerland, Spain and the
United States, and in each case the
visitors have admitted the superiority
of British police methods.
Indefinable Perfection.
Since the beginning of time the human brain has never succeeded in defining, with the necessary exactitude,
what really constitutes a perfect woman.—Outlook.
Home, Sweet Home,
The chief reason for leaving home
is that one may thc better enjoy coming back to it.   Home is the place we
Blow to Teetotalism.
Much anxiety is being caused to
many temperance reformers by the
manifesto in favour of alcohol published by a large number of doctors.
They fear that it means a set-back
to the cause of total abstinence.
Those who signed the manifesto include Professor T. McCall Anderson,
Glasgow University; Sir William H.
Bennett, Sir James Crichton-Browne,
Sir Dyce Duckworth, Dr. Hutchinson, Professor W. D. Halliburton,
King's College; Dr. E. Owen, and
Dr. Fred. T. Roberts. They state explicitly that:
"In disease, alcohol is a rapid and
trustworthy restorative;
"That in many cases it may be
truly described ;>s life-preserving owing to its power to sustain cardiac
and nervous energy, while protecting
the wasting nitrogenous tissues; and
"That as an article of diet, they hold
the universal belief of mankind that
the moderate use of alcoholic beverages is for adults usually beneficial
is amply justified."
As far back as last August the
question was raised at Toronto by Sir
Victor Horslcy, who, in a speech to
the Dominion Temperance Alliance,
declared that the medical profession
in Britain had the same hostility to
alcohol as they had in Canada. He
added that be "meant alcohol not
only as a beverage, which is indulged
in to too great au extent, but as a
drug."
If a man bc ignorant hc may learn,
but if he knows too much there is
no hope for him.

An Appreciation.
By the untimely death of J. C.
JBhaw, not only Vancouver, but the
Province of British Columbia has sustained a great loss. He was a man
])f the strictest integrity and of good
ludgment. Though in manners modest and unassuming, those associated
■/ith him in educational work knew
jnd appreciated his sound scholarship,
fo the young people who came under
lis influence at the time when their
linds were most active and most re-
leptive Mr. Shaw stood for honest
J/ork, for real culture and for that
Ittitudc of mind which is expressed
li the saying that "a man's life con-
listeth not in the abundance of things
Jrhich he possesseth." By a small
lut close circle of intimate friends
llr. Shaw was highly esteemed and
■rill be long missed.
If Mark Tapley of blessed memory
as gone to his rest he evidently has
\it a worthy successor in the editor
the Slocan Mining Review. Any
Ian who can herald the arrival of his
|xth in such optimistic vein as domi-
ites the following paragraph from
le Review issue of April 18, would
f. a perennial success on the staff of
unch:
"A strange young fellow with lungs
te a bell of brass visited town for the
1st time on Sunday morning. Not-
Ithstanding it being the Sabbath and
le New Act being in force, he
Ireamed like a mad thing, prestim-
}ly for drink. By his indecent lack
clothing hc might have been a
loukhabour, but he isn't; he's our
Jw fighting editor, and his weight is
In pounds. Fellow pilgrims! that
lakes six.    Bring in your ads."
The editor of The Week had no
idea that his contribution in last issue
headed "The Appeal to Caesar" was
half as good as it seems to be since
so excellent a judge as the veteran
journalist who owns and edits the
Cranbrook Prospector has seen fit to
lift it wholesale and run it on his
front page even without the usual addition of the magic words "The
Week." Of course this was an oversight, but also a very great compliment, which is hereby gratefully acknowledged.
At the moment of going to press
The Week is in receipt of a dispatch
stating that the Cumberland News
been sold to Mr. Wm. Sloan, M. P.,
who already owns the Cumberland
Enterprise, and will henceforth be
merged with the latter and conducted
as a Liberal organ. The News has
been owned and edited for some years
by Mr. W. B. Anderson and has been
a sound supporter of the Conservative cause. There is not room, however, for two papers in a small town
like Cumberland, and Mr. Anderson
cannot be blamed for selling out.
Work is practically stopped here
for the present and the men arc leaving town in large numbers, while
those who remain are devoting the
most of their time to fishing, football and other sports.—The Fernie
Free Press.

Lacrosse has been dubbed the Canadian National Game. If there is

every occasion, with or without invitation, and on the slightest provocation. When I was yet a tenderfoot

fllE HYSTtiRY OF AN ORCHID.
Seing the true account of an incident
that convulsed European politics.
By  Felix  D'Arblay.
(Concluded)
)y wild  animals  and unable  to  advance a  step without  crawling over
'alien trees and through  inter-lacing
jranches, fearful at the same time of
-evcaling   my   presence   to   M.   Col-
iflski and his party, I crawled rather
;han walked  upon their trail, for  it
'vas easy to follow it by the broken
wigs  and branches  which they left
ehind.    I had proceeded in this mailer   for   about  200  yards   from  the
iver bank when I heard voices, and
new that they must be near at hand.
Jaiitiously crawling and gliding from
pee  to  tree  I  gradually got  within
irshot, and then, hidden by the trunk
f a gigantic cactus, was able to peer
them between the branches.   I do
t  know  what  I   expected  to  see;
rtainly   it   had   never   crossed   my
ind that this moment would reveal
ly solution to the question M. Reval
id  set  me  to  answer.   The  singti-
rity  of  M.   Collinski's  movements,
id the extraordinary destination of
s journey had completely destroy-
11 any theory I might have entertaiti-
and, as I now gazed upon that
nerable   gentleman   and   saw   him
refully  handling,  and in  the most,
ectionate manner fondling a flower,
began to doubt the evidence of my
nses and to wonder whether I was
d to have come here; whether M.
[eval was mad to have sent me near-
ten  thousand  miles  to  watch  an
nocent old man gather flowers, or
Ihether M. Collinski himself was mad
id simply  indulging in a harmless
aze.    In any case  my  instructions
re to report what I saw, and that
would  certainly  do;   whether  the
ult would be of the slightest value
s a mater that concerned M. Reval
re  than    myself.      While    these
plights  were  flashing  through  my
lain M.  Collinski was gazing upon
most exquisite specimen of orchid
it it had ever been my lot to see,
hough in common with many fav-
».d friends  of the  ministry,  I  had
ie and again wandered through the
lservatories of M. Pushkovicii. The
nt   had   evidently   been   removed
m the stem of a cactus to which
had clung whilst growing.    Whe-
r it belonged to the family of the
iphytals or whether it had derived
itie   of   its   vitality   from   the   cac-
I could not tell, but for brilliance

withal something so fantastic in
resemblance   of  the   outlines   to
ie   gargoyle,  which   one   sees   on
sculptured    towers    of    ancient
dings  that my thoughts  were at
e  carried to  the  old  world,  and
gestions of thc sinister and seduc-
involuntarily  forced  themselves
n me.   But another glance at the
|geous coloring and delicate shade
he wonderful flower, together with
influence   of   the   perfume  laden
brought  me  back  to  the  Brazil
forest and I noticed that M. Col-
jki was carefully packing his treas-
in an oblong case which one of
attendants had brought and I had
ly time to secrete myself before

I- on regained thc steamer. I

lid witnessed in the forest, was
lhing more than a mere incident

led me, that, M. Collinski had
Bed not to complete his trip to
Is, but to return to Gurupa, which
[•cached safely and without stop-
at any point en route;   and on
l">oth of July wc were once more
fcio.
I-en yet I could not believe that
lollinski's visit had no other signi-
lcc, and felt sure that all I had
lessed concealed something which
had not yet been revealed to me, but
which must be intelligible to others
who were in the plot. However, during the week which elapsed be'ore
we sailed from Rio, M. Collinski
went nowhere and saw nobody, but
simply waited for the boat and devoted much of his time to tending the
orchid, which hc never allowed out
of his sight. By the middle of
August we were back in London, and,
needless to say, I presented myself
to M. Reval, within an hour of my
arrival.
Never shall I forget the amazement with which that astute diplomatist listened to my recital. His
face was a study, and casting aside all
reserve he allowed me to scc clearly
what was passing through his mind,
and, unless I mis-read him altogether,
his general impression was that I
had been "fooled to the top of my
bent." Hc was, however, just as
much puzzled as I was to understand
the extraordinary proceedings of M.
Collinski, and evidently did not possess the slightest chic. I felt miserable, overpowered with a sense of
failure, fearing that my lack of success would militate strongly against
my future career. M. Reval, after
carefully pondering my tale for a considerable time, seemed to arrive at
some decision, and in a tone of more
encouragement than he had yet adopted, said:
"Well, M. Paul, there is one thing
to bear in mind, and that is, that M.
Collinski is not yet back in Russia,
the clue may come at the end of the
journey. You must follow him,
wherever he goes, as it is certain,
there is something yet to learn."
Although I did not expect anything
important to result, I assured M. Reval that I should obey his instructions to the letter, and if I failed
to make any discovery he must not
blame me. The same night I found
myself en route for St. Petersburg,
in the same train as M. Collinski,
who had left his attendants behind in
London; they having gone, as I was
careful to ascertain, to the office of
Kynock & Cumberland.
It was the last week in August,
when I presented myself at the oflice
of M. Strogonoff, who welcomed me
cordially, but asked no questions as
to my mission and was quite imperturbable, when I tried to ascertain from him, if anything special
had transpired during my absence.
On the 5th of September the ministers were to hold their first meeting,
in accordance with the arrangement
come to in the month of April. It
was announced through the press
that Prince Gladinski had drafted his
proposed measure of reform, and
among his close circle of'friends, it
was said that he had discussed it
with M. Molikoff, but had not taken
any other of his colleagues into his
confidence. As the fateful day drew
near, public expectation ran high,
and everywhere there was ill-concealed excitement, as to the probable
trend of events.
All recognized that thc Prince's
measure involved a departure from
the traditional policy of thc Empire,
and the two questions on everyone's
tips were, "Will Al. Pushkovicii support thc measure?" and "Will thc
Czar ratify it?"
On the day of the meeting little
business was transacted in the city,
and even thc departments were for
once characterized by laxity of discipline. All eyes were bent upon thc
Council Chamber, where the fate of
the Kingdom of Warsovia was to be
decided. One by one the Ministers
arrived, among the earliest being the
Venerable Prince Gladinski, who, with
proud bearing and kindly eye, looked every inch the chivalrous nobleman
he was. With the last arrival—Prince
Hartinski—the doors were closed, and
for three hours no one in that vast
Empire knew what was transpiring
within those walls, but from without
at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, I saw
the doors flung open, and M. Pushkovicii walk out erect and stately,
with white face and burning eye, his
fingers twitching; and the suspicion
of a sinister smile playing around his
lpis. T knew what had happened; I
knew that thc die was cast, that he
had revolted from thc service of his
chief, and as he stalked by mc with
hasty   stride,   the   last  thing   I   saw
was the brilliant and fantastic orchid,
which M. Collinski had culled, in the
Brazilian forest, nodding in his button-hole.
I need not dwell upon the sensation
which followed the action of M.
Pushkovicii, how it led to a furore
of excitement in Russia, and indeed
was not without its effects over the
whole continent of Europe. It is
now a matter of history, that Prince
Gladinski, despite his personal magnetism, was unable, after thc defection of his brilliant lieutenant, to hold
his Ministry together, and that M.
Pushkovicii was hailed by the Imperial Party as thc saviour of the
Empire.
Singular to relate, however, he always deprecated this view of the case,
nor was he able to dispel a certain air
of mystery which hung over the whole
transaction.
The former members of tlie party
bitterly resented thc course which he
tjok,. whilst thc Bureaucrats failed to
give him their full confidence; and
although his services to the State
were recognized by the Czar, this was
done in the most matter of fact way
and without reference to the measure
which he had foiled.
Meanwhile Prince Gladinski, borne
down by years and disappointment,
was laid to rest, and my Imperial
master also passed away in the full
vigour of manhood. Flight of years
had contributed nothing to a solution
of the mystery which surrounded thc
conduct of M. Pushkovicii, who by
this time, had attained that pre-eminent position in the Empire, which,
as I stated at the commencement of
this recital, places him at the head of
all European statesmen. In discussing the matter with M. Reval, I had
formed the opinion that M. Pushkovicii was honestly convinced that the
measure proposed by Prince Gladinski would be detrimental to the Empire, and that in ultimately opposing
it, he was acting from sincere motives.
I could never get M. Reval to endorse this opinion; but he always
persisted that it was too soon to
judge of a great event whilst the
principals, or any of them, were still
living; and I have no doubt that
many years would have elapsed before any satisfactory conclusion
would have been found but for the
occurrence to which I have already
alluded, when I discovered among
the papers of my late, illustrious master, a private document. It was enclosed in a large official envelope,
addressed to the Czar and was dock-
ctted in His Majesty's own handwriting.
"Report of M. Strogonoff in the
Collinski affair."
I submit a copy of this document,
which fully explains thc whole affair,
and furnishes thc correct and I think
I may say, most marvellous clue to
thc conduct of M. Pushkovicii:
"Bureau of Police,
"St. Petersburg, Dec. 10, 1885.
"Report of C. Strogonoff in the
Collinski affair.
"On the 30th of April last I received instructions from His Imperial
Majesty, to despatch M. Paul Kar-
koff to London, on the track of M.
Collinski. Aided by M. Reval, he
was if possible to trace the connection of M. Collinski and M. Pusll-
kovich twih the suspected shipment
of ordnance and arms for the Kingdom of Warsovia. M. Karkoff undertook this mission, and was absent
nearly four months. On his return
he reported that M. Collinski had
visited the office of ordnance manufacturers in London and had proceeded thence to South America, re-
shipping at Rio dc Janeiro for a trip
up the Amazon. 11 c had held no
communication with men of affairs,
and so far as M. Karkoff was able
to ascertain, his sole object was to
discover and bring back with him a
rare specimen of orchid. This flower
was undoubtedly brought by M. Collinski and handed over to M. Pushkovicii, who caused it In be planted
in his conservatories at  I.uga.
"It is well known that M. Pushkovicii is one of the greatest collectors of orchids in the world, and
that his conservatories are filled with
the choicest and most costly specimens. This fact led me Upon a
course   of   investigation,   which   has
been entirely successful, and I am in
a position to say that thc sums of
money which M. Collinski forwarded
to the ordnance manufacturers were
undoubtedly furnished to him by M.
Pushkovicii, who is intimately related to certain members of that firm.
This money, instead of going to pay
for arms, was in reality for the purchase of choice specimens of orchids,
procured by that firm for il. Pushkovicii from every part of the world.
"I learnt that there was one specimen in particular which these gentlemen had been trying for many years
to secure, and thc lack of which was
a constant source of regret to M.
Pushkovicii. In March last he was
notified by them that they had reason
to believe a specimen could be obtained from the interior of Brazil,
and that they could send two men
who were familiar with thc country
to accompany any person whom M.
Pushkovicii might select to go in
quest of the plant.
"This is thc explanation of M. Collinski's expedition, which, as Your
Majesty is aware, resulted successfully, and yet not so successfully as
M. Collinski thought, for, not being a
connoisseur himself, and being guided entirely by the rude knowledge of
the men who accompanied him, and
the maps which had been prepared on
their instructions, he brought back
an orchid exactly similar to the one
required in appearance, but differing
in a most essential particular from
the specimen actually sought for. Instead of belonging to the Epiphytal
family and being entirely self-nourishing, it belonged to the family of
Parasites, whose roots grow into the
stem of the tree around which they
intertwine and absorb somewhat of its
nature. The orchid procured by M.
Collinski was of the latter class and
growing upon thc stem of a cactus
it absorbed the nauseous poison of
that plant, whilst distilling its malefic
odour.
"I was able to ascertain these facts
by the aid of Dr. Dortal, the eminent
Paleontologist, who has made a special study of this subject, and who is
a convert to the ancient theory that
the odour given off by various plants
and flowers are productive of a most
important and vital effect upon those
who come within reach of them.
"In this way hc declares that the
sensuous atmosphere of Oriental palaces has, from time immemorial, been
induced by thc diffusion of redolent
perfumes, and that the fiendish passions and unrestrained barbarity of
savage races have been inflamed by
the pestilent odours which arc exhaled from wild and virgin forests.
Dr. Dortal is convinced that this extraordinary mistake of M. Collinski
is answerable for the mysterious action of M. Pushkovicii, who, as is
now well known, gave vent to paroxysms of rage, such as are entirely
foreign to his usual restrained demeanour, when Prince Gladinski's reform measure was submitted to the
Ministry, and it is to the malefic
odour distilled by this wonderful orchid that the doctor attributes his
conduct on that occasion.

Old  Friendship  Street,
It's   there one knew  tho level   road,   the

Hut   here  1   quarrel   for  the  path   with

Doings at Fernie.
There should be something doing
in Fernie soon, and rumour hath it
that the time has about arrived when
the Great Northern Railway Co. will
exercise their option to take over the
active control of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co.'s affairs. It will be remembered that some six years ago Mr.
Hill purchased 40 per cent of thc
Coal Company stock at an agreed
price. It has always been contended,
and is no longer a matter of doubt
that when acquiring this stock he also
secured an option on the balance sufficient to give him actual control. In
view of the difficulties which have
been piling up in Fernie of late years,
and the urgent requirements of fuel
by the Great Northern Railway Co.,
and the numerous industries which
have sprung up in its neighbourhood
it would appear that there is no alternative but to exercise the option
and make the control effective if
American railroads and smelters are
to secure a regular supply of fuel.
This is said to be the true explanation
of thc recent visit of Mr. F. H. Mc-
Guigan and his staff to Fernie, and
immediate developments along tht
line suggested above may be expected.

Why the Negro Races Have Short
Noses.
The difference in types of man
formed the subject of an interesting
lecture   which   Mr.   E.   John   Solano
delivered before the Ethnological Society.    He argued that the differences
were   due   to   surroundings,   and   in
many  instances  to  modes   of   living.
I For instance, thc negro has a short,
[ broad-nostrilled nose for the purple
' of taking quick, short breaths, necessitated by the heat of thc sun.
Dividing the British race into two
: distinct classes, the fair and the dark,
I Mr. Solano stated that the fair race
'was, on the whole, taller than thc
: dark, that it is more subject to in-
i sanity and nervous diseases, and that
fair people are mostly sailors, scien-
] tists, solicitors and poets.
The darker type, he says, belongs
more to towns, is shorter and physically stronger, while it produces
mostly statesmen, divines, explorers,
and actors and actresses.
As it was obvious that certain types
are more suited than others to varying climates, the lecturer suggested
that a committee should be appointed
to superintend the physical department of our emigration offices.

DEEP
COVE
WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO
SPEND YOUR VACATION?
DEEP
COVE
In a few brief weeks this question will be uppermost in your mind—and your answer? To assist you in
solving the difficulty—and many ihere are in the interior who will desire to journey down to the coast;
and enjoy the ocean breezes-" let us suggest your reading the following extracts from John P. McConnell's
story, "The North Arm of Burrard Inlet," in last Saturday's "Province." lt might be a suggestion in the;
right direction.
Vancouver as a city of surpassingly
beautiful environs will have a worldwide fame when these great natural
features become known.
Take for instance the North Arm,
only one of a dozen of the beautiful
spots within easy access of the city.
That sheet of water will in a few
years take its place among the show
places of the continent and rank with
the Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence, the Palisades of the Hudson,
the Niagara Falls and Gorge and the
Grand Canyon of the Colorado as a
natural scenic attraction.
The North Arm has the rocky
islets, the deep shadowed coves, the
boating and canoeing facilities of the
Thousand Islands. There is not one
attractive feature of that famous
island studded sheet of water which
the North Arm docs not possess save
the summer cottages, chalets and hotels, and they are bound to come.
In comparison with the lovely wooded heights of thc North Arm with
its wealth of color and variety of outline, the Palisades of the Hudson are
insipid and flat.
I havc stood upon the cliffs of the
Bay of Fundy and watched its sixty-
foot tide rise and swell, swirling in
eddy'ng foam, lashing the red granite
cliffs of that narrow gulf, and I've
seen the world-famous reversing falls
of the St. John River, I have floated
dreamily upon the mirror-like lakes
in the Latirentian Mountains of Quebec, sailed down the tawny Ottawa,
shot the majestic Lachine rapids of
the St. Lawrence; I have traversed
the length of the Niagara Gorge a
score of times, both at the brink and
down at its water edge where the
fearful rapids toss and roar in their
tumultuous rage, and stood beneath
the mighty cataract itself; I have
wound among the ten thousand
islands of thc Georgian Bay, when the
spell of the harvest moon lit the scene
with a beauty almost unearthly; in
the highlands of Ontario, the famous
Muskoka district, I have wandered
from lake to lake, I have seen the
pictured rocks of Lake Superior grow
and swell upon the vision; then away
over the broad prairies with their own
peculiar spell for those who can be
content with their eternal monotony,
into the grand old Rockies, through
the Selkirks, down the Fraser Canyon, that most impressive of all the
natural wodners I have seen; I havc
ridden over lonely trails amid the
solemn solitudes of the Hope Moun-
ta--is surrounded by the handiworks
of a mighty nature; but while all
these places have their own peculiar
charm, their individual interests and
features none of them comprehends
such entrancing variety of interests
or so many distinctive characteristics
of simple beauty, grandeur and thrilling magnificence as may be found
within twenty miles of Vancouver up
thc North Arm,
Up the North Arm (and by the
way what a barbarous name that is
to give such a beauty spot) we have
thc thousand rocky islets dotting the
water; at the upper end are snow-
covered mountains towering from
3,000 to 5,000 feet, making a canyon
clothed in a hundred tones of eternal
green, floored with the salt tide of
the Pacific Ocean and crowned with
silvery caps of dazzling snow.
While the forests have been logged
out there is scarcely a sivible scar of
man's depredations save here and
there a moss grown giant stump, an
abandoned log chute and the trails
which make it easy to visit the beauty
spots and explore the wondrous forests and cliffs.
And over all the beautiful scene,
imparting to it the majesty and grandeur that puts it in the Fraser Can
yon or Niagara Gorge class, tower the
stately mountains, solemn in their
huge bulk and silence. Viewed from
the water they welcome one with a
menace, they beckon and challenge.
You watch the flitting sunlight and
shadow swiftly pass over their vei
dure clothed slopes, uwpard and away,
and in you stirs a yearning desire to
follow and scale their summits. But
those summits—crowned with dazzling snow or opalescent glaciers, alluring in their beauty, repellant in
their icy chill and sinister hardness,
loveliness enshrined in peril for him
who would dare to worship at her
feet. * * *
With some judicious advertising
and the facilities for getting to it
the North Arm is bound to become
one of the greatest attractions this
city possesses. If such a feature were
contiguous to New York, that city
would be as famous for its scenic
attractions as it now is as the first
city of the continent. Think of the
millions of people who visit Coney
Island by boat and tram—a barren
sandy waste, its single attractive natural feature the sea, then reflect upon the thousands who take a four-
hour monotonous lake sail from Toronto to Lewiston for the sake of a
forty-five-minute, dusty trolley ride
up the Niagara Gorge, the interest
of which may be exhausted in two or
three trips, or the hundreds who leave
Montreal every Saturday afternoon to
ride for three to five hours in hot,
crowded cars to the lakes of the Lau-
rentians, there to spend Sunday amid
a nature not a quarter so beautiful as
the North Arm. Yet here we have
a trip unsurpassed in beauty and accessibility in the world. From the
moment we leave the wharf nature
presents to our enchanted view a panorama of mountain, water, sky and
rocky islet of such variety and charm
that its interest is endless. Every
passing cloud, every new mood of
Nature presents an entirely new picture, an entire change in the scheme
of color. Every fathom the boat
moves presents the scene in a new
way. And what I have written here
is an attempt to describe it as I have
seen it in early April. What a contrast this sunlit sky, these balmy
breezes to the snow-covered wastes
of the prairies of Ontario and Quebec
as they are at this writing. While
trains are stalled in snow-drifts, while
furnaces are voraciously consuming
coal to keep the inhabitants of brick
and stone walls warm we were comfortably sleeping in the open air,
wrapped in one blanket, not even
taking thc trouble to keep the camp
fire burning.
But natural beauty and climate are
not all the North Arm has to offer
to visitors. The hunter and fisherman will find plenty of recreation
there. Myriads of ducks of all kinds
are feeding and mating there now.
On one side of the Arm deer are
plentiful in season. On the other
among the lofty peaks thc bighorn
andw mountain goat roam. Game
birds, grouse and prairie chickens are
numerous.
In the waters of the Arm in season
salmon are plentiful, and may be taken
■ with trolls.   Indian River is a famous
trout stream, and a good catch may
be depended upon at any time.
One.might spend an entire summer
on the North Arm, make a different
trip every day, amuse himself in a
new way seven days in the week, and
yet not exhaust its list of attractions.
Thennext season he could go all over
it again with renewed delight. Residents of Vancouver may spend every
week-end amid its recesses in every
summer of a lifetime, and find a new
interest in every visit.

Typewriters
Some will say this one, some will say

But after all what makes a typewriter
the best?
Lots of qualities, of course, but still
there is one which outweighs all others,
and that is the capacity for long and
continuous   hard   work.
For long, hard, steady, unceasing
work, year in and year out, there is
only one typewriter, and that is the

wears and bear continual testimony to
its   lasting   qualities.

Confidence that they wil be prettier
still when they reach their destination. Three seasons ago, so freakish and odd was their appearance,
that we put them on with misgivings
and required time to accustom ourselves to them. Now the combination of a certain odd originality in
shape, with becomingness and charming floral trimmings, is successfully
accomplished. It is hard to say
whether the drooping brim or the
straight one with a sharp uplift at
one side or the other will be the more
approved. Those high at thc side
are very stylish, thc others are vastly becoming. Nowadays we are
bound to no particular shape. The
observance of thc hall-mark of each

Sports Galore.
The opening of the professional
baseball season last Saturday brought
out a big crowd of "fans" to the Recreation grounds to witness the initial game between Aberdeen and Vancouver. Since then five games have
been played and the "Canucks" are
still in the cellar. The "Woodchop-
pers" have put it all over the local
boys—but the fans are true blue to
the home team. Of course it was
rather hard that the "Canucks" were
put up against the Aberdeen aggregation at the start off, as the latter
team is reputed to have the best
players in the league, but Parke Wilson has his lines out for some new
material to strengthen the home team,
and several are slated to be benched.
Possibly with the proposed changes
the "Canucks" may make a spurt—
at least it is greatly to be desired if
they want to win the pennant.
The annual spring regatta of the
Vancouver Rowing Club will be held
on Saturday, May nth, over the club
course at Coal Harbor. After the results of the regatta are known crews
will be chosen to represent the club
at the different out-of-town regattas.
With an increase of over seventy
per cent, in entries the annual show
of the Vancouver Kennel Club,
which opens next Wednesday and
lasts for four days at the Drill Hall,
the outlook for the show is exceedingly bright. The best doggies from
Victoria, Portland, Seattle, Tacoma
and Calgary are coming here to secure a share of the $2,500 worth of
prizes the club is offering. There are
half a hundred cups offered, of which
fifteen will go to the fox terriers.
Word has reached the city from
Kamloops inviting entries to the annual Gymkhana of the Kamloops Polo
Club. The meet will be held at the
Alexandra Park on Victoria Day, May
24th. Each year Kamtoops has done
itself proud with  its  Gymkhana  and
race meet and teams have come from
Kelowna, Vernon, Grand Prairie and
other points to compete in the
matches and events. It is more than
possible that Vancouver will be represented this year.
A New Corporation.
The General Agency Corporation,
Ltd., is the name of a new business
that has been opened at 344 Granville
street, by three of the best known
and most popular shipping men on
the coast who purpose engaging in a
general shipping, commission and
realty business. The members of the
corporation are Mr. William A. Ward,
who will be the general manager; Mr.
P. F. Scharschmidt, formerly manager of the White Pass Line of Yukon
River steamers, secretary, and Mr. A.
Heathorn, former travelling passenger
agent of the Pacific Coast Steamship
Co., who will look after the active
management of the firm's interests.
Mr. Henry B. Greaves, formerly with
Messrs. Malins, Coulthard & Co., of
New Westminster, will be chief of
the office staff. The General Agency
Corporation will also open offices in
the Capital City.
Contract is Let.
The British Columbian Permanent
Loan & Savings Company has just
signed the contract with Mr. A. E.
Carter for the erection of a handsome
office building on Pender street, near
Homer, involving an outlay of over
$35,000. The office building will be
entirely devoted to the office of the
company and an auxiliary organization, the Pacific Coast Fire Insurance
Company.
The plans show a building which
would be a credit to any section of
the business part of the city. It is
two stories in height, 37 by 94 feet
in size, and with a sub-basement
reached from the street which will
also be used for offices. The roof of
the building projects in front, this
projection   being  supported   by  four
massive pillars extending from the
foundation to the roof. The rear half
is arranged as two stories, the offices
of the management being located on
the upper floor. The front half is
to be devoted for the purposes of the
general counting-room, and is clear to
the roof, which is surmounted by a
dome filled with cathedral glass. The
building will be constructed with cut
stone front and brick walls, and will
be absolutely fireproof in every particular. The interior woodwork as well
as the office furnishing will be in mahogany. The contract calls for completion of the building by the end of
the present year.
The British Columbia Permanent
has so located the building as to leave
a site 104 by 120 on the corner of
Pender and Homer. Here it is ultimately intended to erect a skyscraper
building as a permanent home as soon
as local conditions warrant the construction. Managing Director Langlois believes at the present rate of
progress this will come to pass in
from three to five years.

whom Dannie loves from childhood, the
story of whoso first kiss ls as tenderly

The Coal Situation
SPECIAL TO THE WEEK.
Fernie, B. C, April 27, 1907.—
" After many conferences had resulted
in failure to agree upon terms of a
new settlement, a mass meeting was
held in the Opera House yesterday
afternoon, which was addressed by
Hon. W. H. Cushing, Mackenzie
King, Vice-President Lewis and District President Sherman.
" Hon. Mr. Cushing's statement that
the Alberta Government would enact
an eight-hour 'bank to bank' law at
the next session of the legislature
carried great weight and did more to
determine the men to return to work
pending an investigation than all
other statements and explanations.
" After the mass meeting adjourned,
a closed meeting of the miners was
held, which lasted to well after midnight. It was decided to submit the
proposition to go back to work, pending the investigation, on the old
agreement terms to the several local
branches, and it is believed that favourable action will be taken by all the
unions and the men will all be back
at work early next week.
"It was feared at times that the
unreasonable attitude of Manager
Lindsay against the Union would
prove an insurmountable barrier to
any pacific result, but, fortunately for
his company, as well as for all other
interested parties, peace has been restored, for a time at least."

Alderman  Hanna  of Victoria  has
done good by stealth and blushed to
find it fame. He is now being heralded throughout the religious press

His action is praised in the pages of
"The Orphan Friend" by as high an
