JLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND
The organization of whicii Dr. Spencer
f Vancouver is  the  Secretary  has  dis-
inguished itself by playing what can only
•e characterized as an ignoble part in the
lame of "moral reform."    Only by the
ndest stretch of the imagination, and the
xercise of the extremest charity can their
policy be regarded as other than one of du-
licity and opportunism.    This circum-
ance is greatly to be regretted because
1 right minded men are anxious to have
icial conditions improved, and to further
ery interest which makes for the better-
lent and uplifting of the race.   The par-
cular field in whicli Dr. Spencer and his
.-agitators work is that of temperance
form, a field wliieh affords plenty of
>e for energy, intelligence, and the excise of Christian charity.   Dr. Spencer
d his helpers can only lay claim to the
st of these qualifications, and the man-
r in which they have exercised it tends
confirm the dictum that mis-directed
lergy, even in a good cause, may be pro-
ictive of much evil.    The cause of tem-
ance reform has enlisted the sympathy
id co-operation of the best and the ablest
en in the civilized world, and few, how-
er ambitious, could desire a more glor-
us monument than has been erected on
ousands of hearthstones to the memory
Father Matthew and John B. Gough.
iese men attained a remarkable measure
success and aroused world-wide enthu-
iism for tlie cause which they advocated,
any men still living enjoyed the privi-
ge of hearing Gough, and in any event
s addresses are preserved and are still
ad far and wide.   In them will be found
bitterness of spirit, no malicious libel-
tig, no imputation of dishonest motives,
it on the other hand a well-reasoned,
ucative argument dealing with the evils
id excesses of the drink traffic; and above
a personal appeal to the individual to
pect himself ancl those dependent on
m, to avoid the excesses which might
nipass their ruin, and if they lacked the
oral stamina essential to self control to
ave strong drink along altogether.   This
an intelligent and rational ground of
ipeal, it is the basis on which all effec-
ve temperance work has been conducted,
avoids the initial error of assuming that
man who does not drink is a better
in than he who does, and is as far re-
oved as the poles from the policy under
ich everyone engaged in the trade is
braced in an all-round denunciation as
ly enemy of mankind, and a murderer
his fellows.    Vet it was in the latter
rit that the latest temperance campaign
s inaugurated in Victoria four years
,0, and it is in the same spirit that it,
s been carried on ever since by Dr. Spen-
and his Association, for in this as in
ier matters the leopard does not change
spots nor an Ethiope his skin.   But to
Kilicy of denunciation and uncharitable-
ss strangely at variance with the sacred
ling which he represents Dr. Spencer
s   added   a   conspicuous   instance   of
iffling whieh cannot but react on the
■rk in which he is engaged, and still
ther disgust honourable men with those
0 are in charge of it.    Last fall Dr.
encer declared on many platforms that
was perfectly satisfied with the terms
the plebiscite as arranged by Premier
Bride. Tie said that the occasion would
nish just the opportunity whicii he and
friends had been looking for, that it
ild give them a square deal, and that
if they failed to carry Local Option it
would be their own fault. As soon as it
was known that they had failed Dr. Spencer and some of his principal lieutenants
loudly protested not only against the result but against the plebiscite itself, and
declared that it never could have done
them justice, and they had made a mistake in agreeing to it. At the last session
of the Provincial Parliament the Attorney
General introduced and carried through a
Temperance measure so drastic in its provisions as to surprise that section of the
community which is opposed to prohibi-
necessary to characterise the conduct of
Dr. Spencer and his associates, its recital
will be sufficient, but it is permissible to
point out that in invoking the aid of the
Scott Act these people cannot be sincerely
desirous of advancing the cause of temperance, at any rate if they lay any claim to
intelligence, because the Scott Act is the
most utterly discredited measure on the
Canadian Statutes, and its only achievement after an existence of forty-five years
has been to impede the cause of Temperance and to increase drunkenness. Its
principal sphere of operations has boon
%c 1Roi Est Mort
(Written for lhe Week)
Purple and black.   Death's ghastly panoply,
Like the dull shadows of the falling night,
Surround us in their silent majesty.
What man so thoughtless and what heart so light
But feels the touch of gloom ?   Far overhead
The flags fly half-mast high, mute signs that show
An Empire mourns, mourns that her king is dead.
Why is her heart so sad, her step more slow?
Because beneath the trappings of the State,
The crimson and the ermine and the gold.
No puppet moved, but a true king, so great
He needed neither crown nor crimson fold
To mark him as the King.   But not for this
Doth she revere his memory.   'Tis not awe
That draws her to the bier to humbly kiss
The cold dead hand that well upheld the law
And toiled obedient to the people's will.
Not awe, but love.   Love for the kindly heart
That stirred with pity at the sight of ill;
Love for his honesty that scorned the part
Of canting hypocrite, but stood four-square
Before the world; love for his manly soul;
Love for the courage that would calmly dare
To do its duty, though the death knell toll;
Love for the tact that mended what was torn;
Love for his smile, his tears—when all is said,
Love for the man himself.   So let us mourn
With black and purple, for the King is dead.

tion, and so favourable to the cause of
Temperance, of whicii Mr. Bowser is
known to be a conspicuous advocate, that
once more Dr. Spencer and liis friends
emulated the example of Baalam, and
having come to curse remained to bless.
That is only two short months ago, and
yet Dr. Spencer and his Association have
gone to Ottawa, ignored the result of the
local plebiscite, ignored Mr. Bowser's bill,
ignored their own declarations in its favour, and secured such an amendment to
the Canada Temperance Act (better
known as the Scott Act) as will make it
applicable to British Columbia.   It is un-
Xova Scotia, where the consumption of
liquor is greater "per capita" than in any
other Canadian Province, and where in
spite of its continued operation repeated
amendments have been sought in order to
give it any semblance of effectiveness. In
a subsequent issue The Week proposes to
recite the principal provisions of the Act,
and to point out how utterly useless they
are and how instead of diminishing they
increase the evils of the traffic by outlawing it, and so removing thoso restrictions
whicli, properly enforced, can regulate it
to the limit assigned by public opinion;
and no law can be enforced beyond that.
Meanwhile it is difficult to resist the conclusion that Dr. Spencer is more eager to
preserve a semblance of activity for the
organization of which he is the paid Secretary, and so stimulate the generosity of
deluded church-goers, than to join hands
with the representatives of the law, and
assist, in its proper enforcement. Such
constitutional methods possess little attraction for those who live by agitation.
VICTORIA SCHOOLS
The AVeek has recently published several interesting letters from tlie parents of
children   who   are   attending   Victoria
schools.    The writers are themselves educated persons, and tlieir letters are so reasonable and logical that they cannot be
gainsaid; furthermore they bear out the
complaints whicii have been made to The
Week time and again during the last four
years, and are entitled to serious consideration.    The complaint is one which will
he endorsed by almost every employer who
has had occasion to take into his service
a pupil from the Victoria schools.    It is
that the education given is not practical
or thorough, that the scholars do not understand what they are taught, and that in
many  instances tho teachers are incompetent,   There is also a very general complaint that an excessive amount of work
is imposed on the pupils in the form of
night lessons, and in addition that much
time  is  wasted  during school  hours  in
trivial occupations.   The Week has investigated a number of specific complaints, and
brieves that to a great extent all the foregoing statements aro correct.   It has unearthed   two  cases  of boys of  fourteen
whose tencher set them to make paper fly
cages during school hours.   Tt has enquired
into ono case in which a teacher at the
South   Park School complained  of bad
writing on the part of the pupil in handwriting which was so ill formed as to be-
barely legible.   It has by request investigated a number of cases in which pupils;
spend  an average of from four to five
hours nightly in endeavouring to puzzle
out new lessons which should havo been,
and   have   not   been   explained   by   the
teacher.    It lias obtained direct evidence
that teachers in some of the upper classes
experience the greatest difficulty in pursuing the proper course of instruction because the pupils promoted from the lower
grade have not been taught to understand
their subjects, but merely acquired them
by rote.    Much more could bo said, and
will be said, but tho fact remains and The
Week challenges contradict inn, that more
than ninety per cent, of the pupils who
pass through tho Victoria schools, and even
through tlio High School, aro unable to
spell or to road at sight from a standard
author,  or to  write decently;  and  still
fewer  arc able to explain  the basis of
mathematical   or   arithmetical   computations.    Mejmwhile "" tbo talk is of more
schools, and big appropriations for sites
and  buildings.   In  the opinion  of  The
Week, whicli will he echoed by tlie vast
majority of the parents, it is about, time
that tho curriculum was simplified, and
that some moans were devised  whereby
thoroughness and practicality should assume their due proportion in the educative
scheme.    Examinations are all very well
as a means to promotion but they' often
utterly fail to furnish a satisfactory test
of thoroughness.    It is not what a pupil
swallows,  but what  he  assimilates that
really lienefits him, and assimilation is at
a low ebb in Victoria schools.    It is not
the ton brilliant scholars who matriculate,
but the ninety who stay at home who determine the educational standard. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY w, 1910

At The Street
Corner
By THB LOUNGER
The street obstructions to which I
referred to some time ago are gradually decreasing, anyhow the sidewalk
is clear and there is no necessity to
go out into the roadway with a chance
of being bowled over by a passing
car. The storekeepers in the vicinity
of these obstructions are beginning to
rejoice in consequence. It is certainly not good for their business, it
not only blocks out the light but the
smoke from the coal tar, or substance,
which is boiled in huge cauldrons,
filters through thc crevices and does
not tend to add to the enjoyment of j
themselves or their customers. Work
such as this, where, as it seems, it is
necessary to carry the hoardings even
into tlie roadway should certainly be
finished as quickly as possible or some
sort of compensation given to the
storekeepers in the immediate neighbourhood.
*     *     *
A pony which got loose from somewhere, blocked the street for some
minutes the other day, four cars were
held up, and buggies and rigs of all
kinds. Thc pony did not seem at all
anxious to be caught and skated down
the sidewalk for a little, causing the
pedestrians to seek safety in stores,
in a hurry. Eventually it was captured and taken away behind a cart.
A loose animal amongst traffic is dangerous; many well meaning people try
and catch it which only makes it
worse and getting excited, it dashes
about seeking for an outlet from the
circle of its would be captors and
generally ending by sitting down on
the asphalt sidewalk or butting
through a store, plate glass, window.
If the world is still in existence by
tomorrow wc shall have passed
through the tail of Halley's comet and
we shall probably know nothing about
it. If we don't land up with a nasty
jar everything will bc allright for another, three-quarters of a century.
Some time ago when the end of the
world was predicted for a certain date
a new sect, or cult, or whatever they
called their peculiar denomination,
took themselves off to a graveyard
with food enough to last them till
the end of the world took place which
was supposed to be within forty-eight
hours and sorrowfully bewailed their
approaching fate. Not only did they
fail to order the next day's dinner
T)ut in some cases they left their
houses open as of course they did
not expect to inhabit them again. In
the mean while the ubiquitous burglar who had no such lugubrious ideas
got in, ransacked the place and enjoyed the fare provided for the people
who had no further use for it and incidentally borrowed a few little things
to go on with. When the owners
returned they rallied against fate in
the garb of the burglar for apparently
taking a different view of the prediction than themselves.

We all know that chickens havc a
marvellous digestions and literally
eat their peck of dirt to stimulate
their appetite. But whether they like
it altogether as a staple food the following story would rather discountenance: A certain young man from
Victoria was spending the week end
with friends in the country and was
asked to go out and feed the chickens,
being told that the foodstuff for them
was just round the comer. Hc went
out to his appointed task and discovered a little hard grain and a sack
of some whitish grey substance.
Thinking that the grain was not
enough to go round (there were some
600 chickens), he proceeded to mix
up the contents of the sack with the
grain, and calling chick, chick, chick
in his best farmyard manner soon had
the feathered flock round him. They
eagerly pecked up this unknown food
given them with unstinted hand, but
now there are 600 more or less lopsided chickens flapping about and
wondering why they can't hop and
like Mark Twain's jumping frog feel
too weary to even try. The reason
is the sack contained best Portland
cement and they were filled up with
cpnerete before they knew where they
were, When thc welcome guest left
there were some score chickens in the
hospital, and the rest arc looking kind
of tired, and being nourished on sweet

from London, but hailed from Ontario. Perhaps this kind of chicken
would be useful to solve the problem
which is now being discussed as to the
best kind of streets for the city as a

Since writing my former paragraph
we have passed through the tail of
the comet without even being chipped
in so doing, at least we are not aware
of the fact. The saloons seemed to be
doing a big trade and there were
more constellations seen than have
ever been known before. In fact thc
air was full of them and even the
sidewalks in their intensity gave rise
to much serious thought as to whether
matter is soluble or things are not all
what they seem. If the stars are
solid bodies or mere chimeras of the
imagination are problems which many
people seem to prominently bring before their own notice on an occasion
like this, and there is always the dear
old excuse Halley's comet. It is only
seen once in three-quarters of a century and as such should be welcomed
with fitting honours and even if one
does not get back late for dinner and
say the cars were not running regularly it is only natural to suppose
that the comet is responsible for all
and everything; so say no more the
subject is lost in hte track of the
comet itself.

I am told that an enterprising man
on a former occasion such as this did
an immense trade by selling albatross
wings to some coons somewhere
down South, the idea being that they
would be properly clothed when the
end of the world came and all ready
to jump off. There are a good many
credulous people in the world, white
as well as black. I once heard of a
man in Melbourne who came from
the country being had by a man who
was looking for mugs. The smart
man got the mug interested in a sundial in the public park which had
been newly painted and told him he
invented it; the mug was greatly
struck with it and eventually agreed to
go into partnership and paid $1,000 to
clinch the deal. The other man evidently evidently being a humourist
told the mug to dig the sundial up
next morning as he explained it was
only there for display purposes and
they would take it with them. Next
morning when the simple one was
laboriously digging up his invention
which he had paid for in good hard
cash the park keeper came along and
despite his expostulations hailed him
before the beak. I believe he is still
looking for his partner in the deal.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor
ENGLISHMEN   AS   EMPIRE
BUILDERS
A significant incident occurred in
Winnipeg last month. An advertisement appeared in the wants column
of the Manitoba Free Press, with a
curt notification at the end, "No Englishman need apply." Next day a
frank and generous expression of regret appeared in the editorial columns. "There is probably not a
newspaper in the West which would
insert such an advertisement if tendered, except by oversight or misadventure," said our contemporary, and
it went on to praise the tens of
thousands of prosperous Englishmen
in Western Canada who are a credit
to the land from which they hail and
a source of strength to the new Dominion. "It is cruel and cowardly,"
said thc Free Press, "to make the deficiencies of thc incompetents—a
trifling proportion of the whole English immigration—the occasion for insulting all our English settlers."
These outspoken words of the Manitoba Free Press are a proof of a better understanding of British affairs
and life which is showing itself in
the Far West. There was a time,
and that not long since, when the
Englishman of today was painted by
over-seas detractors, who did not
know him, as an unworthy and inept
inheritor of a great Empire. In Canada in particular, all the resources
of widely circulated American newspapers were steadily employed in
preaching the degeneration of John
Bull. This detraction was, unhappily,
borne out by a certain number of
wastrels and unfortunates sent from
home to get rid of them, and planted
down on the prairies. The armies of
good and successful Englishmen in
thc West were regarded solely as Ca
nadians; the few weaklings were held
up as   horrible    examples   from the
Motherland.   During   the   past   few
weeks the tens of thousands of sturdy
and   self-contained   young   Englishmen   and   Englishwomen   who   have
poured into the West have done much |
to  shatter the old  delusion.    At all |
points Press and public have express- ]
ed  their  amazement  and  admiration
at these newcomers.
What do the undeniable facts show?
England is today the greatest manufacturing nation. She leads the world
in ship-building, in shipping, in cotton and woollen manufacture, and in
a hundred lesser trades. London is
mistress of the world's finance. England has done more towards the upbuilding and consolidation of Empire
within the past twenty years than in
any other similar period of her history. In the Straits Settlements, for
example, a few British administrators have transformed a series of
native states where cruelty, murder,
and lust were the dominant forces,
into an orderly, prosperous, and contented dependency. In Uganda we
have plucked a new Dominion from
primitive savagery. In the Sudan, thc
place where the Mahdi yesterday
reigned with his barbaric hosts, is
now a great university for all Africa.
Alike in Burma and on the Indian
frontiers, in mid-Africa and in the
further Pacific, our sons have met
strong nations and won them to ourselves. The virile forces that made
the England of Elizabeth great are
working today on a broader scale.*—

It is not often that a vaudeville
performance or a moving picture
show enjoys the advantage possessed
by thc kinoscope entertainment now
running" at the Victoria Theatre. The
vocalist, Mr. Glyn, is one of the most
talented singers which Victoria audiences have had the pleasure of hearing for a long time. Mr. Glyn was
for many years in the various musical
companies of Mr. George Edwardes,
the well known London manager, under whom he acquired all the technique of his business. He has a pleasing voice, good stage presence and is
making a most favourable impression
on his audiences.
and something which happened at the
New Grand Theatre this week aptly
illustrates the proverb. Everyone
knows that Manager Jamieson prides
himself on the irreproachable character of the performances at his
theatre, so much so that time and
again he has excised or suppressed
objectionable features which will
creep in despite the utmost vigilance.
This is due largely to the greater
latitude allowed to the same companies across the line, but when they
come to Victoria they have to pass
muster with Mr. Jamieson and nothing gets by him which is in the least
degree questionable. On Monday a
turn was presented in which a would-
be Seattle Salome figured, and little
else, but Monday was the first and
last appearance, for Manager Jamieson administered the coup de grace
to an exhibition which had nothing
to recommend it, at least nothing
worth mentioning.

blows  which  way  the  wind  blows,"

"Hold a minute!" I interposed, seeing he was working himself up into a
state of of passion which boded ill
for me. "Will you pause just to consider whether I am or am not Benjamin Acherson? A man of your mental attainments—one who deeply resents a gross injustice done him—will
surely hesitate a moment before committing such an injustice as to shoot
a man he has never seen before on
an absolute misapprehension. You
want revenge, and I in turn demand
justice. I acn convince you beyond
the shadow of doubt that I am not
Benjamin Acherson. I will ring up
my wife, and when I've got her you
shall ask her what my name is."
He jumped up and, pushing me
aside, ran to the telephone. Before I
could recover from my surprise, he
had cut th.e wire with a pair of pliers.
"You still think I am a fool, do
you?" he cried angrily, turning round

Magnificent Gift Things for the
Brides of June
 and now the month of May is almost gone and the month of brides and roses soon to come.    You have a friend who is
going to stand before the altar in June, ancl you are probably pondering over "what to give."    Let us solve this problem
satisfactorily by offering you a magnificent collection of most desirable gift things.
What does a bride most desire in a wedding gift ? Certainly something with which she can decorate her new home—
something she can use in this her first attempt at "keeping house" for herself (and hubby, of course).
Here is a store recognized to be the leading home furnishing store of the west, and here is a stock, specially chosen
for this season, which we say is the finest we have ever shown. Don't you think it a good place to visit if you have a wedding
gift to purchase ?
Unusually dainty wedding gift suggestions in silver, hand painted china, art pottery, Libbey cut glass, furniture,
linens, linen drawn work, etc.
A hearty invitation to inspect these various offerings is extended you. Don't make a purchase without first seeing
our offerings.
Remember that this is Headquarters for Summer Furniture
Don't forget, when Summer furniture needs come to the fore, that this store is headquarters for all such needs.
We have splendid assortments of all lines needed during the warm weather. Outfit your camp or summer cottage from
this stock; choose your summer floor coverings here.

Why Don't You Use
a Gas Range?
It is so convenient. It is always ready. You can
prepare a light luncheon or a large dinner with Gas
with very little trouble even on the hottest day, and
it is so clean to work with. You don't have to be
shovelling coal all day like a fireman. 'Tis cooking
makes the world go round, but let the stove be a
poor, out-of-date one and the world wobbles from bad
digestion.
You are most cordially welcome to visit our showrooms whether you desire to purchase or merely to
look. We will gladly explain the many advantages
of gas for cooking and heating purposes. Easy payments if desired.
Much time is wasted in chopping ' kindling" for coal
or wood stoves, and carrying dusty coal or ashes backwards and forwards. A kitchen where a gas stove is
in use is always tidy, should be spic and span. Quick
as a wink you have you fire without trouble of
building—turn off the gas tap and it is out;
drudgery, worry and money saved. The lower oven
in a Gas Range is a wonder-worker for roasts and
broilings; juices of the meat are retained; both sides
of a steak are broiled in four minutes at a trifling
expense. With coal half the juice is lost, the cost
is one-third more and the inconvenience, dirt and
worry can never be figured.

THE MAN OF HATE
(Continued from Page 4)
alarmed by the failure of my attempt
to summon the police. "You suspect
me even when I seek to convince you
that I am not the man against "
"There are other means you might
try!" he cried, waving his arm towards the safe near the window.
"Surely you have papers there bearing your name?"
I snatched at the idea; not that I
quite expected to dissipate a madman's wild delusions by such means,
even if he should find my name set
out uflly, as I was not sure hc would.
but because the safe was at the end
of the room farthest from the door
and I hoped that I might make my
escape if I allowed him to search
among the papers in the safe. So 1
unbuttoned my keys and tossed them
upon the desk.
"There you are," I said nonchalantly.    "Convince  yourself."
"I think you are very rude," he exclaimed sharply, as he stepped forward and took up the keys. "A well-
mannered man would havc handed
them to me with a polite remark-
not, 'There you arc! Convince yourself.' You should, indeed, open the
safe for me, seeing how far it is
from the door and that I may not be
able to manipulate it and keep an eye
on you meanwhile. Remember, T am
doing this to please you—sort of dying man's last request."
"I will open it with pleasure." 1
said  rather tamely.
"No," hc said angrily, "it doesn't
matter.    This is the key?"
T nodded silently, and hc stepped
back to the door, locked it. and
slipped thc key into his pocket.
I had feared hc would do that. Now
my only means of escape was through
the door communicating with the
clerks' room, thence out into the passage.
T stood at my desk watching him
as he crossed slowly over to thc safe.
Hc hesitated slightly as he passed the
communicating door as if considering
whether he should lock that also.
Then he went on seemingly satisfied
in his mind that the door offered me
no chance of escape while he was engaged at the safe, which was only
two paces away.
I tried to remember what papers
there might be in the safe bearing
my name in full. "B. Acherson &
Co." was how I styled myself in busi-
netss, but I kept other things than
business papers in the safe. My passbook was at thc bank, or that might
have satisfied him; there were various
securities-which might bear my whole
name, but whether they did I could
not quite remember. In any case it
seemed doubtful whether he would
accept such proof as proof; his manner denoted that he regarded me as
being beyond a doubt the man on
whom he had determined to wreak
his vengeance. But my mind was
whirling out thoughts in confusion,
and to reason with myself was difficult.
lie stopped before thc safe and laid
his revolver on the top.
"It is rather intricate, that lock,"
I remarked casually, and took a step
towards him.
"I daresay it is," he returned drily,
and picked up the revolver quickly.
"But you needn't come any closer;
1 can manage."
1 stopped, but hc did not lay the
weapon down again.
I drew a chair towards mc with a
vague sort of an idea that I might
fell him with it as hc bent his head
or turned away to look into thc safe.
But a heavy office-chair is a poor
sort of weapon to match against a
revolver, and he watched mc narrowly  out  of  the  tail  of  his  eye.
Suddenly an idea occurred to inc.
and as he swung open the heavy door
of thc safe, T took thc risk of moving forward swiftly.
"There's a  blue  paper on  the top j
shelf " I began, and throwing out I
my left arm, I switched off the light,
throwing the room into etutr darkness.    The next instant T flung open '
the   door   communicating   with   the
clerks' room and dashed  in there.
With an inarticulate cry, as much
like a burst of laughter as an oath,
he rushed after mc, and I felt his
outstretched hand brush my shoulder
as I plunged across the room. But
coming in contact with a corner of a
desk, whicli by my knowledge I had j
been able to avoid, checked him; and
as I stopped and pressed myself into
a small alcove I heard him pausing
and groping over the desk, apparently trying to ascertain the position
of the furniture in relation to himself.
I waited breathlessly, straining my
ears to catch the slightest sound
which might indicate his movements,
for until he approached the windows
I dared not make for the door into
the passage, as without the clerks',
desks between us he could be on me
in an instant on hearing the click of
the latch. !

exclusively at that important state function was G. H.
MUMM & CO.'s Champagne, a fact whicii shows the high
standing of that wine in its native land. In France, the
home of Champagne, no great social affair is considered
complete without "Mumm's," and it has in that respect
become a national institution. This proves the hold that
G. H. Mumm & Co.'s Champagne has upon the affections
of the most general and discriminating class of wine-
drinkers in the world. To drink Mumm's Extra Dry,
Selected Brut or Cordon Rouge denotes the cultivated
taste of the epicure and connoisseur.

THE WEEK, SATURDAY, MAY 2t, 1910
Block of Stock Alloted to be Sold
at 25 Cents Rapidly Diminishing
INDICATIONS POINT TO EARLY CLOSING, OUT  OF SHARES IN
CANADIAN NORTHERN COAL & COKE CO., LTD. AT THIS PRICE
On Saturday last the first instalment of $2,500,000 on the purchase price
of $11,000,000 Avas paid to the representative of Mr. James Dunsmuir in
connection with the sale of his coal properties on Vancouver Island. Less
than fifty years ago these properties if offered at half a million could not have
found a buyer.
Development has produced the recognition of value.
As short a time as two decades ago, the late Col. James Baker was
having tlie greatest difficulty in inducing the people of Victoria to take stock
in his newly-formed Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., then offered at 5 cents a
share. Each of these shares, if taken then at that price and held until today
would represent between $400 and $500 actual money value; $100 invested in
Crow's Xest stock at the price at which it was first offered Victorians would
be worth a million dollars today.
Development has produced the recognized value.
The Victorian with, perhaps, a few hundred dollars that he might easily
have invested twenty years ago, prided himself on his "conservatism." It
''might be all right," he conceded, "but there were so many of these mining
gambles that one never could tell."
So he kept his money in his pocket or spent it—and today he is telling
his friends how 'IF" he had taken the chance that was offered him then he
would be a millionaire today.
A few others looked into the proposition of twenty years ago—saw that
tliere was very good reason to suppose the rosy anticipations of the promoters
would be realized-—recognized that these promoters were acting honestly and
in perfect good faith in tlieir representations to the public—bought stock
accordingly—and are millionaires today.
As good chances exist in British Columbia today, for those who have a
little faith in the resources of tlieir country and in their honest and active
fellow men.
It is by participating in the DEVELOPMENT, ancl taking the inevitable
minor risks that are an element in all mining investments that larger dividends
are earned therein on a comparatively small investment than in perhaps any
other field of legitimate speculation.
Coal mines are, on the record, the most conversative and substantial
investment of any in the list of mining securities.
Today the Canadian Northern Coal & Coke Co., Ltd., is offering opportunities paralleling those which the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. offered twenty
years ago. There will be some who will be wise enough and sufficiently alive
to tlieir own interests to INVESTIGATE the proposition placed before them,
and doubtless invest, after such investigation. There will be others who will
casually agree that "it looks all right," but who will not take the trouble to
investigate, and who may tell their friends twenty years from now how they,
too, might have been rich men—"IF!"
It rests with you which class you are in. The one is made np of people
who are suspicious that every fair, open and above-board proposal to them to
share in the large and legitimate profits arising out of the development of
British Columbia's rich natural resources is some sort of trick to get tlieir few-
dollars from them. The other is composed of tho men of progress who do
not begrudge a few minutes devoted to looking into the proposal on its merits
for themselves, who use their own common sense in weighing the investment
offered, and who ride in their own automobiles.
There are two important requisites in a stock investment proposal to
entitle it to serious consideration: Are the properties it is proposed to develop
likely to produce the results claimed, and are the promoters men of integrity
whose bona fides may be relied upon. Both these questions are undoubtedly
answerable with "Yes" in regard to the Canadian Northern Coal & Coke Co.,
Ltd., ancl its propositions to Victoria investors. The properties which the
company has secured give every indication of proving immensely valuable;
the officers and directors of the company are well known to everyone in
Victoria as shrewd, dependable business men whose reliability and honesty
arc unchallengeable. They have bought and paid for the properties it is
proposed to develop, believing that there is much money in them. They now
are offering a limited amount of stock to other Victorians in order that the
necessary money may be brought to the Treasury to go ahead with that
DEVELOPMENT out of which large profits are to be made.
THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR PROFITS OUT OF ANY SALES
OF STOCK, BUT ONLY WANT YOU, WITH WHAT MONEY YOU
CARE TO INVEST, TO JOIN THEM AS A SHAREHOLDER OR"
PARTNER, AND HELP THEM WITH YOUR AVAILABLE CAPITAL
TN MAKING MONEY FOR THEM AND FOR YOURSELF OUT OF
THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROPERTIES IN AVHICH THEY HAVE
EVERY FAITH.
And all they ask you now is lo give their proposition fair investigation.
They believe that if you invest you will be pleased with the result. Is it too
much trouble for you to look into the proposition for yourself and see what you
think of it? If not—if you are willing to give yourself a fair chance to make
a little money—call at the company's offices, Room 20, Five Sisters Block,
010 Fort Street, and get particulars.
Surely, that's fair enough!
