And this is a contribution to the
telligent discussion of a great pub-

All we can say is that every man
ho voted for Mr. Morley must hang
s head with shame to think that
owever much he might feel called
pon to resent the criticism of the
ess he should have gone out of his

e respect of the whole community,
d whose sacred office should have
otectcd him from cheap sneers and
bald abuse. The whole attitude of
e Mayor toward the water question
lamentable, but however wrong-
aded he might have so conducted
mself as not to have incurred the
insure of fair minded men. The
Delusion is forced upon us that
e only way to make any progress
for the city to tnke the mntter into

is it no nearer to the goal.

int was made upon the manner in

officers handled the Brothier ease,

,«d in a manner which might be in-
preted to mean that we suggested
personal complicity in the steps

fcrick. No such thought wns in-
ided to he conveyed and on rend-
whom we greatly respect, and who is
a good Liberal, thinks that an amende
is due we have pleasure in making
the statement in the most unqualified terms that we did not intend to
suggest personal acquiescence on Sir
Wilfrid's part and that the only
sense in which we consider that
blame can attach to him is in the
general sense in which a Premier is
dence. In other words that they
hope to prove their case out of the
mouth of one of the accused. We
await the denouement, but this is a
likely proposition. Meanwhile we
have no hesitation in denominating
the scheme "a cool proposal."
For Love The Fifth Regiment Band,
of Art. Victoria, comprises a very
capable lot of musicians
whose services are appreciated whenever and wherever they are rendered.
Incidentally they recive nearly all
their financial support from the citizens of Victoria, either directly or
indirectly.   In the course of the year
The Cry Nothing can compare in
for Water, interest for Victorians
with the deplorable lack
of water and the pitifully weak manner in which the Mayor and Corporation are handling the question.
Meeting succeeds meeting with no
tangible result. The Water Committee presses a report whose recommendations are voted down. The members of the Council both by their
remarks and votes show that they are
working at cross purposes. Even
such a reasonable proposal as that
the owners of the best water supply
available should be asked their present figure is turned down.   All the
this amounts to a  very respectable 1 satisfaction the public can get is the
sum.    Once annually the merchants  statement of the Mayor:

sufficient head for fire purposes.
Eliminating for the moment every
other consideration, even if the Elk
Lake project would yield as much, or
ten times as much, as Goldstream,
there are the insuperable objections
of quality and elevation against it.
Mayor Morley admits that he is seeking a source from which to reinforce
Elk Lake, but by no process can he
alter the natural conditions which
have given it an earthy bed nnd banks,
and placed it only 192 feet above
Victoria. The citizens will never consent to accept impure water at any
price, not even as a cheap and nasty
bargain. Nor will they consider a
scheme satisfactory which whatever
thc quantity of water available can
not give a greater pressure than
about 75 pounds to the square inch.
The Mayor does not appear to understand that a scheme lacking these
prime essentials is not worth a moment's consideration, and in suggesting that people who argue in favor
of the Goldstream project are actuated by personal motives is descending to a style of discussion unworthy
of any public man. To twit the Colonist with "knocking" Victorin for
pointing out the true state of affairs
i is as ridiculous as it is disingenuous.
Does the Mayor mean that it would
be honest to disguise the desperat-1
pass to which affairs have come under
his direction from outsiders who contemplate settling here? Wo prefer
to believe that no true Victorian
wishes to have the seriousness of the
position minimized on tho dubious
ground of expediency.

his ministers. We thought our statement would have been construed in
this sense.
A Oool
On Monday next the
special commmissioner
appointed by the Provincial Government will commence
his investigation into the charges
preferred by the Vancouver World
and the Victoria Times in connection with the Pendray acquisition of
Sehl's Point. The charge is thnt a
lady, whose name need not be mentioned, obtained private information
from the Lands and Works Department as to the amount of the tenders,
before the date on which they were
due to he opened. This would of
course involve a breach of (rust on
the part of the Department, and
equally a grave charge against the
lady and places her in the position
of a co-defendant. Bolli papers have
repeatedly declared that they have
evidence "abundant and startling,"
and the editor of the World in particular stated recently in Sentlle that
"this time" he was going tn "make
it stick" and that he bad a "cinch."
The public is waiting for (he evidence nnd will be prepared lo record
a just verdict thereon, As the dny
apron dies the World and the Times
—bow the latter is nn echo of the
other—both declare that if, may result
in a miscarriage of justice if the lady
should not be available to give evi-
most popular and successful of the
season's events. On the present occasion every preparation has been
made by a painstaking committee
with Mr. Fall as secretary to render
the affair even more attractive thnn
usual. Of course music was indispensable and equally of course the
Fifth Regiment Band was approached. To the intense surprise and disgust of the Committee the latter demanded what under all the circumstances of the case must bn considered nn extortionate fee, $G per man
per day. We arc not, questioning lhe
right of any mnn to sell bis services,
although under all the circumstances
of (lie ease it would not have occasioned great surprise had the Band
offered for once to recognize their
indebtedness tn their special patrons
by gratuitous services. No such
tiling, n fee, n high fee, in fact a
hold-up fee, was demanded and when
refused, in ord°r, we suppose, to
show their independence of Victoria
and its affairs, the Band promptly arranged to go to Bellingham for a
festival on the snme dny as (lie mer-
ehanls' picnic, thus diverting what
interest lhey could to a foreign and
competitive point. We ennnot think

a plentiful supply of water is forthcoming of the best quality; whether
it, is the Esquimalt or not depends
upon the price, all other things being carefully taken into consideration. But nlso rest assured that we
are absolutely independent of the
Esquimalt system, both as to quality
and quantity."
This means, ns all the Mayor's
water schemes menu, that Elk Lake
with some possible additions will be
the source of supply ultimately recommended. Last week wo discussed the two schemes fully, nnd there
is no necessity to go over the ground
again, As hns been very properly
pointed out, in a letter to the Colonist, whnt is wanted is not merely
a wnter scheme, but the best available. The latter depends on at least
three indispensable conditions—adequate quantity, good quality and a

Of late we have had an almost endless range of metaphors suggestive of
red Indians, scalps, belts, girdles,

In a burst of poetic fervour apropos
of nothing he exclaims "The sitting

And now it's the bathing-suit I The
fiat has gone forth and brazen single-
blessedness must give way to dual decency. No longer will the sands of
English Bay slip uneasily, the white
horses hide their heads and the cedars
whisper inuendoes while man stalks
shamelessly at high noon clothed in a
garment of Adamic brevity. The great
and only Moral Reform Association
has again taken up the good man's
burden and appealed to Caesar as the
mouthpiece of our hearths and homes.
,. * *
Personally, I wonder this seventh
wave has not struck the shingles of
the beach sooner. Innately modest myself I have blushed a roseate hue while
threading my embarrassed way through
the maze of large beach-combers, male
and female, who sprawl their languid
length athwart the sands. And I wear
the moral and unimpeachable "two-
piecer." Certainly it has its disadvantages in the water, but at least in
crawling back to the protecting shelter
of my dressing room, I do not feel quite
so like our first forefather after he had
eaten the apple and knew all about
things. However, the majority of men
appear to prefer getting close to nature
and in no way object to being the
"cynosure of neighboring eyes."
» * *
This latter phase of the situation
strikes me—thought it does not appear
to have so struck the Reformers—as
the more deplorable of the two. And
women are the worst offenders. Garbed themselves in the raiment of righteousness, skirted and stockinged and
gartered, they arc often far more decent than when they decorate a ballroom, but they can lounge on their
pretty elbows on the sands and stare
the unfortunate male out of countenance as he hurries, pink as a salmon
with conscious timidity, to the kindly
oblivion of the Pacific.

Shiv'ring one day  on the shingle

For my trunks they failed to cover

does not receive much support from the
recent tour of Comrade Hawthornthwaite. On the other hand it would
really appear that the Conservative
party fought shy of the fire eater to
judge even from the reports of the
Liberal press. The Cranbrook Herald
"Comrade Hawthornthwaite arrived,
in town yesterday morning and walked
to the Cosmopolitan hotel and registered. Not a Conservative appeared to
extend him the glad hand, and yet he
has been one of the best friends the
Conservative party of British Columbia
ever had, and no man in the house gave
McBride such loyal support during the
last session."
In a similar strain the Fernie Free
Press, the recently acquired organ of
the C. N. P. C. Co., declares:
"It may be said that the coming and
going of Mr. Hawthornthwaite to Fernie to address the miners on their
holiday was as close to a failure as
anything we have seen. He came to
speak to workingmen, he spoke, but he
didn't conquer; he was defeated and
dishonored by his own."
And the Moyie Leader bears out the
same idea in its latest issue:
'"McGregor hall was well crowded
last Saturday evening to listen to Mr.
J. H. Hawthornthwaite, M.P.P., of
Nanaimo, and leader of the Socialist
party of tiie province. Thos. E. Kelly
acted as chairman of the meeting and
introduced the speaker. Mr. Hawthornthwaite is a rapid and somewhat brilliant speaker. At time she was cool
and again at times he pawed the air
and become spasmodic. He would hit
Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir a rap,
then the beef trust, then John D. Rockefeller, then the Liberal Government and
then the Conservative Government. He
played no favorites and alii were grist
for bis muck rake. But as to the real
question of Socialism and its proposed
remedy for the industrial and class evils
of the present day he was not at all
clear, and those who went to hear an
educational speech were doomed to disappointment.
The less said about the senior lacrosse match on Saturday the better.
Vancouver was deplorable. Gibbons at
goal saved a complete Waterloo. As
for the rest of the team, well, the
sooner they go and watch the little
boys on the vacant lots the sooner will
they learn how to play lacrosse. As the
Columbian caustically queried: "Was
there a lacrosse match on Saturday?"
Mr. Buscombe has decided that he
will not again run for the mayoralty.
I suppose His Worship is wise in time,
for it is better lo have lived laborious
days and go out on the high tide of
concious well-doing, than be told by a
fickle public to "get out." Mr. Buscombe is a nice little man and has more
business acumen than have the aldermen combined. But, as Mr. Chamberlain says, change is the essence of life,
and we don't want to see Mr. Buscombe
dead by stopping too long in office. A
year or two of Europe is all right, but
it's high time to get back to China.
Sunny Jim.
That «lusive person, James J. Hill,
still resists the blandishments of the
Board of Trade. It's a case of now you
sec him, now you don't. He was to
conic here a couple of months ago, and
be received with much pomp and circumstance, but business, urgent and
pressing called him back to St. Paul.
Again this week we were wearing
motor-car smiles already to welcome
him, when hey! presto! comes the word
that he has turned tail eastward and is
still travelling. Really Vancouver will
have to sidetrack the Great Northern.

shots from the Second Regiment of
Infantry, National Guard Washington,
at the Richmond ranges and intend to
make the visitors look to their laurels.
The "D. C. 0. R." can claim some of
the best riflemen in the Dominion and
are willing to take on anything, even to
a Bisley team.

The interest is of course remarkably
strong in the matches now in progress
at Bisley. Vancouver is well represented and all her men have so far acquitted themselves.
* *   *
The entries for the annual B. C. R.
A. are already numerous though there
is still another week before the lists
close. The ranges have been well taken care of and numerous improvements
made so that, given good weather, the
meeting should be the best on record.

The regiment has inaugurated a Wednesday afternoon shooting, in view of
mid-'week half-holiday. This is an excellent move and will result in a greater
accession of zeal among the.men of the

The final match in the Canadian
Military Rifle League series was shot
off on Saturday and demonstrated that,
if normal conditions had prevailed
throughout, the regiment would have
ranked high in the aggregate. The bad
luck at the beginning of the seeason will,
however, it is feared, have pulled the
score down.
It is to be greatly regretted that it
is so difficult for Americans to take a
part in any sport without friction of
some kind resulting. I don't say it was
their fault at Bellingham, any more than
I say that it was their fault when the
Palma trophy trouble caused irritation
on two continents or when on another
memorable occasion a certain noble lord
chucked up his challenge for the American Cup. But the fact is there. Where
there is friction in amateur sport the
other side of the equation is the United
States.   Most distrcssin'.
The Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club
grounds will be remarkably busy shortly
with the croquet, bowling and tennis
open tournaments. I presume that Victoria will come over in hordes and capture all the nice little silver things as
usual. The courts, lawns and alleys
are in magnificent condition, as they
always are, and the club can at least
boast that it entertains "our friends the
enemy" in lirst class style.
Baseball has not that vogue just now
that it enjoyed during the previous two
seasons. The failure to get together a
professional team is probably responsible largely, as the game does not appeal very urgently to the amateur, at
least as an active participant. The
small boy who sits among the rooters
on the seat of the scornful misses his
fun, but otherwise Vancouver is not
materially affected.

Another Bubble.
The Kamloops Standard has this to
say anent a recent fiasco engineered
and bolstered up by the Vancouver
World :-
"The sudden—very sudden—collapse
of the action brought by Norton, a
coast logger, against Hon. F. J. Fulton
for refusing to submit a Petition of
Right, must be somewhat disconcerting
to the Liberal journals which made
such a "hullabaloo" over the case. Norton had been persistently egged on by
the coast Liberals of the World coterie
and supported by the journals who follow the lead of that discredited prophet and now quits a wiser man in consequence. To read the twaddle that
appeared at the time the action was
commenced one would think Mr. Fulton had been guilty of some grave offense but in reading the judge's comments when dismissing the case one
readily sees that the plaintiff was badly
advised by his political friends.

At The Street
last week I drew attention to the
of interest displayed in tennis at
J. B.  A. A. courts on Kingston

' know I shall be told that just now
(ss courts are more popular and that

fcet discounts the interest in the earth

Ination; and in any case when a com-
fctee  of  management  advertises   and

step further and try to ensure their
ting a game.   I am not a "kronic
ker" as readers of this column well
ow ,and these remarks are made in
t. interests of the club.
Now, however, I have a "kick," and
jig one.   The J. B. A. A. is the lead-
organization of the Province it has
years  worthily mantained splendid
Editions.   The walls of the club rooms
decorated with the trophies of its
Ibwess and among tire leading busi-
3S and professional men of Victoria
day one recognizes many whose pho-
jraphs figure in groups of victorious
iletes at James Bay. This is as it
mid be, and bears out in the most
.nplete and satisfactory manner the
|iory of Old Country athletics.   The
!...  who  trains  conscientiously,  sub-
jting himself to the necessary disci-
ne to win in hard fought amateur
itests is fitting himself in one of the
it and most important senses for the
:tle of life.   It is because the J. B.
A. has done so well and is looked
to as the parent organization that,
1 a Victorian, I hang my head with
time at the miserable policy in send-
only four men to Nelson to com-
(te at the N. P. A. A. 0. regatta, and
ly entering them in a single event,
lis is   worse than a slight on the en-
prising   oarsmen   of   Kootenay, it is
insult.   It is equal to saying "Well,
promised to compete so we send a
!ew, but they shall do the absolute
inimum, just one race—the champion-
ip—and one more silver cup for Vic-
ria, that is all we care about." This
iks more like "pot-hunting" than
Iort, and in addition to discouraging
lotenay oarsmen, will lower the pres-
;e of the great J. B. A. A. in the eyes
all fair minded people. The little
liital of the Kootenay, a city of only
people, has not treated Victoria

that I understand the occupation is
productive of dyspepsia in its worst
form I should long ago have joined the
happy band of lotus eaters. How can
one observe men, manners and things
unless at leisure? How can one become a philosopher without observation
and reflection? What is the good of a
Lounger who is not a philosopher? And
what good is a philosophy that does
not teach him to live? These reflections were forced upon me whilst I
smoked my morning cigarette, after
breakfast, about half after noon on
Wednesday. It was near my favorite
Yates street corner that I noticed three
$8-a-week young fellows, all smoking
cigars, all sitting in a row in a shoe-
blacking place, each getting a "shine"
and all going thence to a barber to be
shaved. Neither of the three things
was a necessity of life. Smoking might
wait on better ability to pay and each
might "shine" his own shoes and shave
himself. Yet their practice costs each
fifty cents a week, at least, or $26 a
year, which is more than five per cent,
interest on $500. True enough. This
is a fair illustration of the difference between wastefulness and the thrift one
may see in nearly every civilized country on the globe save ours and the
great republic to the south.
Needless to say the Lounger is a
bachelor, my only reason for reiterating the statement is that periodically
my friends are so considerate as to suggest that it is time I married and settled down. I always tell them that
there are three obstacles. I have never
yet been in a position to settle up—and
that is a quite necessary preliminary
since I am neither a lord, nor the son
of a lord; then I have never felt quite
like sacrificing myself to the idea of
settling down; and finally my altogether
too assiduous friends have never been
able to find a lady willing to ally herself to this noble but battered wreck
except a widow with a small fortune
and a large figure, and a kittenish creature of doubtful chronology with all her
gold in her mouth and all her figure in
her feet. At such a bizarre combination even a Lounger may be permitted
to shy. This week, however, I nearly
fell a prey to the wiles of a pretty
widow. I will not attempt to describe
her at any rate until Volapuk, or some
other equally expressive new language
has become the universal vogue. Only
by a hairsbreadth did I escape. It was
a case of "over head and ears."
We had been thrown together for
three successive afternoons at tennis,
and for three indescribable evenings
on that fascinating Gorge, just within
sight of the enchantment of Clifford
Denbam's "Arabian Nights" and the
strains of the orchestra. From a nimbus of shade we looked on the fairy
scene. Alcazar and Alcabar with their
attendant peris and hotiris flitted across
the canvas; canoe after canoe emerged
from the darkness, glided through the
gleaming pathway to disappear on the
other side. Subdued mttrmurings, faint
rustlings, occasional white fluttcrings,
like the wings of a great moth, marked
the drift of heedless but happy pairs.
Then in a fatal, or lucky moment the
fascinating widow gently cooed:
"Do you believe in love, real love,
I mean?"
"Of course I do," I replied, with not
unnatural emphasis.
"Don't you  think  life  is  empty,  a
blank, without love?" pursued my temptress. .
Again I assented.
"But," continued this philosopher in
petticoats, "don't you agree that real
love means sacrifice, self-denial, living
for another?"
Tbis was getting a little beyond my
depth. I bad no compass and felt that
I too, like the canoe, might be drifting,
still I could hardly do other than assent.
"Yes, I knew you would agree and do
you know I read such   a beautiful para-
graph this   morning on   the
Would you like to hear it?"
Of course I had no option although
I felt sure that in some indefinable way
I was among the quicksands.
She quoted: "If you will leam the
seriousness of life, and its beauty also,
live for your husband; do like the
nightingale to his domestic life; be to
him like the sunshine between the trees;
unite yourself inwardly to him, be
guided by him, make him happy and
then you will understand what is the
best happiness of life."
Appropriately enough she finished with
a sigh—it was a psychological moment;
then occurred the incident that
proved so dramatic and providential. In
more senses than one we had been
drifting. Our canoe had, with the turn
of the tide, slipped down from the
Gorge park to the bridge. How unconscious can even a Lounger become
under hypnotic conditions. Crash, we
went against that dear familiar boulder
in the middle of the stream, and in far
less time than it takes to tell, the fascinating widow was struggling in the
arms of thc Lounger beneath the chilly
but reviving waters. Phew, what a
narrow escape! We might have been
lost, and then what would have been
the future of thc widow—and the
Up a Tree.
The head of a well known theological
seminary is accustomed to test the
agility and self-possession of the students by sending them into the pulpit
with a sealed envelope in their hands
containing the text of a sermon to be
delivered on the spur of the moment.
On one such occasion the student,
on opening his paper, read these instructions: "Apply the story of Zac-
cheus to your own circumstances and
your call to the ministry."
The student, cleverly enough, delivered himself of the following.
"Brethren ,the subject on which I
address you is a comparison between
Zaccheus and myself, with reference to
my qualifications for the pulpit. The
first thing we read of Zaccheus is that
he was small of stature. I never felt
so small as I do now. In the second
place, we read that Zaccheus was up a
tree, which is very much my position
at present. Thirdly, it is related that
Zaccheus made haste to come down;
and in this I gladly and promptly follow his example."
Some Catch.
Do you happen to have heard the
story of the Yiddishcr shopkeeper and
the Fire Insurance canvasser?—extremely improbable, say we, because
the affinity between Yiddisher shopkeepers and fire insurance is surely undeniable. Anyhow, the tout called on
the Yid and offered to cover his stock
for three per cent, a rate so low—
(Aha, solo!)—as to fill the Hebrew
with amazement.
"J'yer mean to sav," quibbled he,
"that if I pay yer tmrty bob and my
shop gits burnt out yer pays me a
tbassand quid?"
"Sufferin' Lazarus! Yer pays me

"Oh, no, no, no," answered the intermediary. "On the contrary, wc
should make the most stringent inquiries as to the origin of the fire."

As we were going to press last week
the following announcement appeared in
the editorial columns of the Colonist:
Yesterday negotiations which had
been in progress for some days in reference to the controlling interest of the
Colonist Printing and Publishing company held by Messrs. J. A. Lindsay, C.
E. Pooley and A. G. Sargison, who
retire from the directorate, were concluded, Mr. J. S. H. Matson will be
managing director and Mr. R. E. Gosnell, editor, general manager and assistant managing director. The Colonist will continue as formerly to support  the  Liberal-Conservative  cause.
The news thus conveyed was no surprise to tbe public, wlio had been prepared for something more than a temporary change by the transfer of Mr.
James Dunsmuir's stock about a month
ago and the appointment of Mr. C. E.
Pooley as President. It is an open
secret that for several years Mr. Dunsmuir and Mr. Sargison, who between
them held control, have been desirous
of withdrawing from an enterprise
which had so far as tbe former was
concerned, Served his purpose, and
yielded the latter no returns upon a
heavy investment. The difficulty has
been to ensure that the property would
not pass into a control which would be
either indifferent or adverse to interests for which it had stood, with which
it is still identified in principle, and
which in any event the vendors would
wish to conserve. On at least two occasions negotiations which had approached tbe point of successful issue
were abruptly terminated when it was
found that this feature could not be
secured. The recent sale may be taken
to have been satisfactory in this respect, and to have ensured permanence
in the support of a Liberal-Conservative policy, in advocating everything
which will make for the development
of Victoria and the Island, and in conserving tbe great political interests of
the vendors. To tins extent the public
is deeply interested in recent developments in connection with a paper which
for nearly half a century has been tbe
foremost, and most influential in the
Province. The new general manager,
Mr. R. E. Gosnell, lias stated in an
interview with the Times that tbe Colonist has been purchased by private
individuals as an investment, and that
no corporation is behind tbe deal. His
word must be accepted, and all rumor.;
to the contrary arc thus sel at rest. The
Week is enabled lo make the first public announcement of the composition of
thc new directorate which our readers
will find interesting, Thc members arc
Messrs, J. S. II. Matson (President and
Managing    Director),   R.    E.   Gosnell
(Assistant Managing Director and General Manager), R. T. Elliot, W. H.
Langley, Godfrey Booth and H. B.
Thompson. All are well known successful professional and business men
of the city. Three are Liberals and
three Conservatives, which justifies the
claim made in the announcement that
the Colonist will continue to be a Liberal-Conservative organ. It would also
appear to support the statement of Mr.
Gosnell that the purchase is for investment purposes, and that with its splendid printing department the whole property will become more of a business
than a political enterprise. It is understood that the new president will
take up his work at once, occupying
an office in the Colonist building, and
devoting most of his time to directing
the affairs of the company.
If the gentleman who was so carefully explaining to Mr. Hibben on
Wednesday that he had not seen anything vulgar or obscene in the imported boiler-plate reproduced in the Sunday Colonist will call at the Week office he shall have proof that the remarks of the Editor in last issue were
fully justified. If his modesty prevents, then let him go to the Colonist
office and look over the file for the last
two months and he will be equally satisfied. "Allee Samee," as John Chinaman would say, the nuisance has been
abated since the Week first called attention to it, and there is reason to
believe that like many other things that
find their way into the columns of the
Colonist they were not seen by the
Editor until "after many days."
By the way, who was Ibsen? I always thought he was a diminutive, benevolent, bewhiskered old gentleman
who tried to create a little commotion
in tbe stagnant pool of society in the
special interest of Bohemians like myself. The apothesis of bachelordom, the
glorification of the ego, the inalienable
right of the individual. Something on
the lines of each one for himself and
the devil take the hindmost. A more
subtle but less sincere Grant Allen who,
to use thc expressive if slightly outre
phrase of Sarah Grand, preached, and
tried to propagate "the ethics of the
poultry yard." But I rub my eyes, all
this is wrong, we are told on unimpeachable authority, and in unimpeachable English that "he occupied a dominating place on the world's rostrum."
Poor old rooster.
'He overflew all contemporary writers among his own nation and abroad,
till his eagle-flight pointed him out in
solitary greatness among the stars of
the firmament."
Are eagles bred from roosters?
"And yet Ibsen is practically unknown
to the masses of English speaking nations."
Life has some compensations even
for the masses.
"His thoughts, the problems he discussed; and his point of view are so
radically modem as to arouse the deepest indignation among the followers of
the deep-rooted customary trend of
The writer probably means among
those who are in the rut. Those who
have not been emancipatacd from the
bondage of ethical teachers with clean
ideas and rules of life such as Paul,
Plato and Socrates among the ancients;
and Bacon, Carlyle and Ruskin among
the modems.
"His form is so unique in ils perfect
art that it only appeals to the sense
slowly educated and trained by the master himself."
What an inestimable privilege, yet in
some cases the education is painfully
"slow" both in form and expression.
'And above all, his language is idiomatic, so peculiarly personal, as completely to defy translation even as the
prose of his dramas is the despair of
his translator, not only is his thought
and sentiment in close affinity with his
peculiar idiom; but the effect on the
reader's mind depends largely on the
phonic impression of his lines."
Ye gods and little fishes! here is
'unique" expression with a vengeance.
The effect on the reader's mind is—
indescribable, and undoubtedly depends
not largely but wholly on "the phonic
impression of his lines," for that is all
they contain, just "phonic" impression. In the good old schooldays of
Bohemian this same "phonic" impr-.••■•
sion was rendered in the Latin "Vox
et preterea nihil," which being idiomatically translated meant "words
without sense, signifying sound and
fury," which being construed into no
less expressive modem Americanese is
"hot air"—Anglice "tommy-rot." But
stay, it dawns on me, why not print the
obituary without the preface? Or to
put it another way, why with the weather, and the dust, and the flies, and the
drought, and Mayor Morley and Mrs.
Drosdovich and Abe to write about,
did the Editor, who shall be nameless,
turn loose among Ibsen's paradoxes a
prentice hand when there are not five
men on the American continent who
know anything about the subject?
One of the chief qualifications for
writing on any important subject nowadays would appear to be absolute un-
acquaintance with its experimental side.
A little gossip of the drawing room
and a little tittle-tattle of the club, with
a possible interchange of ideas in the
studio or whiff from the underwold,
and there is your equipment If this is
all that is necessary, then by the same
token a bachelor and a Bohemian is of
all men the best qualified to discuss the
burning topic of "race suicide"; which
can no longer be relegated to the scientific press since it is the stock subject for treatment in the pages of nearly all the Eastern dailies, and is now
keeping the Editor of the Victoria
Times at work day and night framing
sentences to set forth its salient features in a manner which shall satisfy
without shockinc.
It is a well known fact that most editors compose their editorials, just as
parsons make their sermons, between
three and six a.m. whilst parading in
their bedroom in the scantiest attire,
carrying a 'mewling and puking" infant
i«o the soothing accompaniment of a
sonorous partner worn out with tending
said infant. This accounts for the invention of pyjamas, and for the jerki-
ness of some editorials, especially those
which treat of men, women and children
and marital relationships. Clearly from
this ascertained fact it is easy to conclude that editors and parsons who
have done their duly so nobly, and have
so long stood in the breach against a
diminishing birth rate are reluctantly
driven to become fashionable in self-
defence, since people are no longer content to take their mental or spiritual
papulum in the form of "pap."
This, however, is only one step.
''Breathes there a man with soul so
dead" as not to admit "this is thc age
of woman." The home-bird of fifty
years  ago  has  flown,  the  cottage  has
become a cage, none the less a cage because its bars are gilded. The emancipated dove has flown and returneth
not—until the "small hours" in many
instances, but to be fashionable not
while the game lasts. Why should I
complain? I, who sip and taste and
find life one continual feast of joy,
thanks to the delicate sympathy of the
the society matron so artistically expressed. I the Bohemian am the gainer,
who said loser? Why should I, dille-
tanti and bored, declaim against a system which beatifies all that is most
Bohemian in my life, and offers me the
delights of sweet fellowship without its
responsibilities. Perish the thought,
"let joy be unconfined " this is the very
acme of idealized affinity, the latest
product of advanced(l) civilization, the
last word of aesthetic conception wedded to languorous sentiency, and the
result is naturally—oh I how I hate to
use the inartistic and horrid phrase-
let us say Malthusian. At least that is
said to be the outcome in the Eastern
cities where the latest craze of emancipated feminity overshadows every other
topic in social interest. Luckily the
craze has not reached the Pacific Coast,
and if statistics are reliable the birthrate is the highest in Canada, so that
it may have been a little premature to
broach the topic even in the pages of a
daily. There are other aspects of the
question that might be touched upon
but they are "caviare" to a bachelor
and a
lowed in the above for extras and fron
past experiences a larger sum will prob
ably be necessary. •  .

from the Nelson News. The little city
is raising $1,200 for the local expenses
of the regatta and is actually spending
$400 on the one item of entertainment.
Mr. Wragge said that the last regatta
of the association held there cost over
$1,500, but that the committee thought
they might possibly do with less this
year. He submitted the following estimated expenditure:

Dickens' Anniversary.
Saturday, June 9th, was the thirty-
sixth anniversary of the death of
Charles Dickens, and his grave in Westminster Abbey was covered with floral
tributes sent by friends and admirers
of the great novelist. Prominent am-
011st them was a beautiful wreath of
scarlet geraniums, with the inscription
attached, "In affectionate remembrance
from the 10,000 members of the Dickens Fellowship." Curiously enough,
with this exception, none of the floral
contributions bore any indication from
where they had been sent.

Fire Protection.
Apropos of water supply and water
protection Arrowhead has been learning the same lesson as Fernie though
luckily at smaller cost. The only wonder is that some of the larger cities
have not been wiped out. There is
hardly one in the Province in a position to cope with a big fire. In this
connection the remarks of the Revelstoke Mail-Herald are appropriate and
should be heeded:
"The Arrowhead fire ought to be an
object lesson to towns to give some
attention to fire-fighting arrangements.
Some means should, where possible,
be provided for getting water on to a
fire even if it is only by a hand fire
engine, but there should be plenty of
hose to utilise what water is available.

Accrington Town Council on Monday referred back to the local Education Committee a recommendation that

mistresses and assistant mistresses marriage should be regarded as equivalent
to three months' notice to terminate
their engagement. On the one hand,
the view was expressed that to shut
female teachers out of school upon
their marriage would have the effect of
keeping young women out of the teaching profession. On the other hand, it
was urged that the proper place for a
married woman was at home, and that
when a teacher married she should
make way for someone else.

Honor Indeed.
The B. C. Mining Exchange is increasing in favor and it must be a
source of gratification to its indefatigable editor, Mr. George Sheldon Williams, to find his latest editorial copied
verbatim as the leading article in a well
known Liberal daily, and in addition to
find the following appreciatory notice in
the Vancouver World. Of course it is
well known that neither Mr. Williams
nor the B. C. Mining Exchange has
any politics:
"The B. C. Mining Exchange is always welcome to our table. It is a lively, progressive and instructive publication
and its influence as a factor in spreading abroad valuable information has
been great and is growing. In the
June number there is a map of the Big
Bend mineral district in Revelstoke
riding. Thc location of the various
claims is given, accompanied by descriptions of the properties, value of
the assays and other information of
importance and value. Similkameen and
Okanagan valleys and other important
mining localities are written up ill moderate but impressive anil convincing
language. The development of tbe oil
industry is noted and the hope is out-
held that in that resource Canada is
destined to make important strides in
the immediate future. Tbe Mining Ex-
change is an excellent issue and deserves encouragement,"
The King's Diplomacy.
The King of England has long been
known as a Very accomplished and
agreeable man, with a gift of tact
which amounted to genius but during
the last three or four years he has secured a foremost position as a diplomatist . His services to Europe have
been signally successful and important,
for he has everywhere appeared as a
peacemaker. It requires no small ability in a king to adjust himself to modem conditions, to possess authority and
to exercise it without seeming to assume it. This is precisely what the
King of England has done.—The Outlook, New York.

* Short Story *
By Eleanor M. Ingram.
(Continued next week.)
The officer who entered had already
received his orders, and Cemief offered
no resisance. But before he left the
foom he looked at me once more with an
expression so earnest in its despairing
truth that my heart almost failed me.
Then the recollection of how much
greater his real crime was than the one
of which he was faslely accused came
to restore my firmness. He deserved all
I could do did it matter under what
name I punished him?
That evening I ordered the Novgor-
ado on a long cruise to the tropics, and
let it be supposed that Cemief had sailed with her. It was not my intention
to give Sophia cause to pity him; a
woman can be more constant in pity
than in love.
A week passed Sophia appeared preoccupied and thoughtful. I lost all sympathy for my prisoner, if indeed I had
ever felt it.
At the end of the week I summoned
him before me again.
This time he leaned on his guard's
arm as he entered. Heavy dark circles
lay under the black eyes and his lips
were set in a straight line that told me
I surveyed him a moment and waited.
I wanted to see him at my feet, to hear
his mask so that I might refuse, to have
the right to despise as well as hate
But he stood motionless after thc first
salute, not even looking at me.  ■
"Have you anything to say," I asked
at last.
"Your majesty sent for me," he answered. "I can say nothing but what
I said before."
"I have reconsidered our last interview,"  I  said  reflectively.    "You    are
not without hope."
He started and raised his eyes eagerly,
"You believe me, sire," he remanded,
scarcely breathing.
L smiled internally, there was still a
way to move him.
"Certainly not, Count Cemief. I have
merely decided 10 give you the opportunity of confessing and purchasing a
lighter sentence by telling the names of
your associates."
As I expected, he winced visibly before the disappointment.
"I cannot confess what I did not do,"
he answered, "and if I were guilty I
would not sell my comrades."
"A most wise and respectful reply,"
I said sarcastically. "You will return
fo your prison, then,"
He bowed and put liis hand on the
arm of llic man at his side, he, the
pride of his corps for grace and
"You suffer, perhaps," In inquired.
He looked me full in tbe eyes and
then I realized the wonderful change in
him. His youth was dead, a bitter, insulted man looked out at me.
"What was done, undoubtedly was
done at your majesty's orders," be said
evenly. "You might have had me shot,
Father, that reproach went home. I
might have had him shot, and he would
not have troubled tne again. But I wanted to make him suffer, 1 wanted revenge.
After all, what right bad be to ask
swift oblivion; I had to live and know
my promised wife did not love nie.
A day or two after I met one of
Sophia's ladies in the ball. Ordinarily
I did not pay much attention to them,
but tbis one gazed at mc so wistfully tbat
involuntarily I stopped and spoke to
She wns a slender girl with golden- j
brown hair and grave brown eyes, curi-j
ously sad for one so young. She answered my trivial remark with gentle j
dignity and hesitated. I waited quietly j
and seeing my comprehension of hci j
wish  she  took  courage. '
"If I might ask. sire—" she commenced uncertainly, then in a little rush,
"Count Cerneif is really gone?"
An exclamation of rage and astonishment broke from me.
Go bid your mistress ask herself," I
said, fiercely, and pushing her roughly
aside I strode on, blind with anger.
Think, father I, the emperor, was to
be the toy of a silly girl. That Sophia)
should dare so much and try to deceive
me with a childish artifice.
For I knew she did not love Cemief
really any more than she loved me; she
was not capable of it. It was simply
her last caprice, and her persistence in
it astounded me. Evidently his dark
beauty had made a deeper impression
on her than I supposed Jealousy shook
me like a storm, and stopping at the
nearest table that held pen and ink I
wrote an order to the officer who had
Cemief in charge. The pen quivered in
my unsteady fingers, and I sealed the
letter with my ring lest my writing
should not be recognized. Since I could
not strike Sophia, Cemief must suffer
for both.
It is whispered that insanity runs in
our house; if it were true, I could not
have gone on and counducted the daily
routine of business so calmly that morning.
I mentally anathematized the fit of
passion that had made me expose myself
to the young girl Sophia had sent. The
recollection of her terrified face annoyed me. If she repeated my message, as
she probably would, what effect would
it have on Sophia?
On my way to luncheon I called the
officer in charge and ordered him to
bring Cemief to my room. He answered that it should be done if I wished, but the prisoner was unconscious.
I dismissed him impatiently, although
it was to be expected. The picture rose
before me of his rigid face on the narrow prison cot, and I enjoyed my lunch.
In the afternoon I paid my usual
visit to Sophia. She received me with
a sweet serenity that filled me with
mingled wrath and amazement.
Either the girl had not understod
me or my fiancee was an inimitable actress, Being cousins, I thought I knew
something of her character, but this
phase puzzled me.
On returning to the palace I was informed that Cernief was delirious.' The
officer was apologetic but helpless. The
impulse seized me to go myself and see
him off his guard, without the mask his
pride kept between us. It would be
easily done, for he was not confined in
the prison, but in a distant part of the
palace itself. I signified my desire to
the waiting officer.
Our way led downward through a
succession of passages and stairs until
the daylight was almost lost. That
gloom must have affected Cernief
strangely the first day he was taken
Wc stopped before a heavily barred
door \\>hich opened with some difficulty.
On the threshold I left the others end
entered alone,
He lay very much as I had fancied
him on the miserable bed, his wide open
eyes blazing with fever, a scarlet spot
on each cheek, but, an exasperated
hatred rose in me as I looked, the
beauty I longed to destroy was with
him still.
He was speaking swiftly and incoherently, disconnected meaningless sentences following each other. I gathered
that be was thinking of the training-
ship he bad left five years before. Finally be was silent for a moment, moving
bis head restlessly from side to side.
"Princess," he murmured vaguely,
"help me it is you—" then in an indescribable tone and accent, "Dear love,
dear love."
Furious, I took a step forward and
struck the smiling lips with my clenched
hand. He shuddered and lay motionless.
1 left the room with a solemn promise
to myself that I would not see him
again until I bad found the punishment
suited to bis crime. And I kept my
Father, yon arc pale; remember it
happened twenty years ago.

* A Lady's Letter*

* By  BABETTE. *&
Dear Madge,—The flowing veil which
I lias been in favor for several seasons
is again re-appearing on newest millinery, and feathers that curl over hat-
brims and shoulders adorn alike the
tiniest straw and the ampler proportions of the picture-hat. Never has
piillhiery been more eccentric or irresponsible than at the moment, nor,
it may be added, more generally becoming. While wide brims and a simmer outline suit young faces—but
poung faces only—the forked-lightning
gigzag of to-day deal much more kindly
vith all kinds of profiles, and women
veil past their thirties and early forces take on quite a youthful jauntiness
\>y reason of the amazing composition
jf the hats of the hour.
The up-to-date lingerie hat is a very
different thing from its predecessor,
I'flop" of piteous memory. The under-
Iraming of lace on ruched muslin is
|o wired as to present a becoming
Outline even under stress of wind and
liveather. The coverings of broderie
Inglaise and lawn are daintiness itself.
The newest are inlet with medallions
bf colored embroidery. Shady sailor
|iats in various colored linens are vrey
popular, and the neat "tailor-made"
Inodels with their hard little crowns
Jtvvathed with stripped or postel-color-
ijd ribbons with clusters of loops and
|nds at the side are decidedly piquant-
[poking on the right heads.
If the young Queen of Spain reads
;he papers—and even royal personages
ran hardly avoid the Press nowadays—
ihe must be tired of her trousseau as
revealed by every printed leaf, English,
Canadian and American. Columns about
t'urbelows to left of us, columns most
lowery in front of us, columns femi-
line and fluent (mercifully behind us).
Royalty has indeed to bear a fierce
Iight nowadays. I once knew a Ger-
lan cartoonist who drew pictures for
arious comic papers representing the
ycophancy of the English speaking
rowd. It was when the King was
prince of Wales and recording press-
ien crawled after the royal footsteps
rotn place to place. One cartoon was
ntitled "The Prince Blows His Nose,"
nd a company of trumpeters was
nown busily sounding a fanfare in
onor of the event. Another depicted
is Royal Highness engaged in the
mple process of drinking White
.ock    from the spring at seven a.m.
I ith the flower of European and New
'ork society looking on from its knees
t the  astounding occurrence.      That
rtist was a cynic, but knew his world
-having arrived at the one, perhaps,
|ecause of observing the other.
i If   Solomon   had   existed   and   built
mples and palaces in our day and had
lived  anywhere    near    Victoria he
lould   most    certainly  have  sent    to
iTeiler Bros, for his decorative schemes.
Ind what endless trouble it would have
lived  him.    Instead  of  sending  ships
Tarshish and Ophir he would have
laced  the  contract  in  the  hands of
at firm, who would have decorated,
trnished   and  equipped    the    edifices
I'th  a magnificence of design and  a
fealth of taste far outrivalling that of
s own master craftsmen.
The modem substitute for the pocket

'las it ever occurred to anyone, asks
Ivriter in the Tribune, to try to cul-
are bow much money is  "dropped"
Bridge by society ladies in a year?   It
iby  no  means  an  exaggerated  esti-
te  to   put   the  number  of   persons
Iare "in society" to-day at twenty
usand.    And out of tbis number it
i  still more modest computation to
kon that there are twelve thousand
'es   playing   Bridge   every  night   in
year.    Allowing for deductions on
' score of occasional "good luck" we
safely put down £2 a night as the
average loss of each of those ladies.
That gives us almost £9,000,000 lost at
Bridge by women every year. It can be
very plausibly objected that, if most
lose, still some must win, and win enormously. But money won in this way
seems to do no one any good. It does
not pay the dressmakers' bills or the
servants' wages, or help the husband
to make a remission of rent to his tenants in a bad year.
Slang among the smart set is constantly changing, so that only the initial, that is, the chosen few who are
constantly meeting, can tell which
words are in vogue. It consists wholly
of abbreviations, and is therefore as
labor-saving an invention as the typewriter. Thus, in the words of the
smart set, "nury" stands for neuralgia,
'champey" for champagne, "divey" for
divine, "iitnbey" for umbrella, "Rensy"
for Kensington, and so on.
A society matron had been reading
a newspaper article devoted to criticism
of peekaboo waists, elbow sleeves and
openwork stockings. "Perhaps," she
said, "men would do well to correct
untoward incidents in their own apparel. They might, for instance, campaign against the insufficient clothing
men wear at the beaches. As one young
woman put it, instead of being buffeted
by the surf she is surfeited by the buff.
Men's bathing suits are scanty enough
without their rolling up their trouser
legs and cutting down the sleeves so as
to expose the scapula and vertebrae
In general the average masculine bathing suit needs trimming —say, an over-
skirt to begin with."
A boon and blessing during the hot
weather is "Viola Cream," a preparation for the skin which keeps it soft,
fresh and comfortable during the hot
weather. As it contains no grease it
does not increase the distressing shini-
ness which afflicts some complexions
during summer but seems to tone up
the pores and keep the skin in condition. It can be obtained from Cyrus
H.  Bowes, 98 Government  street.
Simultaneously with the American revolt against the open-work blouse, there
are signs at home, says a gossip in the
Tribune, that the smart woman has
already grown tired of the ubuquitous
elbow-sleeve. Of course, short sleeves
will remain in vogue throughout the
summer, and with the dainty muslins
and cambrics that are to be worn, this
fashion is often very becoming, but it is
an unmistakable fact that the average
arm will not stand the ordeal of the
short sleeve, for even when the arm is
well-gloved—and how rarely this is
seen—there is still an ugly little gap
between sleeve    and glove top.
Sorrow and Song.
(By Edward Wilbur Mason.)
Sorrow   gives    song.   When autumn's
wind veers.
The  roses,  dying  when the day is
Shout back with flame the swan-song
of the sun,
And leaves sweep earthward singing like
the spheres.
When winter with her snow and silence
Then all the sombre bill-tops and the
Aroused  to  song   likestricken  nightin-
Pour forth with living gold their flaming fears.
And when the soul is seared with some
great grief,
How  all  its  common hope and  sad
For one impassioned moment wild and
Catches from all earth's pain a noble
And sings with silence of the heart and
Even as Sappho sang, or Milton blind!
