— 6 —
 The following are suggested orders for the guidance of
Masters and Officers when carrying out boat drill.
1. The boat's crew fall in, standing in single line with
life jackets on, facing the boat, the coxswain being abreast
of the stern post, the bowman at the stem, and the lowerers
opposite the falls.
2. Whilst in this position they are instructed in, and
questioned as to their knowledge of, the details of the boat,
its equipment and management, and of the disengaging gear,
if any, fitted to the boat.
3. "Clear Away"—At this order the coxswain takes
charge. Lowerers see that the falls are properly made fast
and clear for running.
The covers are removed.
The stroke oarsman ships the plug, the bowman
passes the painter out, the remainder of the crew let go the
gripes (outboard gripes first), see the falls, chocks and guys
clear, and the boat ready for swinging out.
The crew with the exception of the stroke oarsman
and bowman then return to their former positions.
4. "Swing Out"—At this order the boat is swung out as
quickly as possible, the guys (if any) are secured, the painter
is passed along to a suitable position and the rudder shipped.
The boat is then lowered to a position suitable for
the embarkation of passengers or crew.
Before the boat is lowered the operation of swinging
out should be conducted several times in order to improve
the crew's efficiency in this preliminary work.
5. "Still," "Carry On," "Lower Away" — The order
"Still" is given, when through some misunderstanding or
accident, or for the purpose of instruction it is necessary to
suspend operations. At this order each man stops what he is
doing and retains his position. If the order "Still" is given
whilst the boat is being lowered the lowerers immediately
take an extra turn with the falls or belay them. The order
"Carry On" means that operations should be resumed. At
the order "Lower Away" the boat is lowered. It is desirable
that each man in the boat's crew should act in his turn as
one of the two lowerers.
6. When the boat is near or in the water, the crew,
except those lowering, take their places in the boat, unhook
her when water-borne, ship the crutches, and toss the oars.
7. As soon as the last two lowerers embark, the bowman hauls in the painter, and the practice afloat commences.
8. Each oarsman should be required to take turn in
steering and giving orders such as "Pull starboard," "Back
port," "In bow," etc., also in assisting to set the sail, float
the anchor, and bring the boat alongside.

There are 32 Points in the Compass.    The way to
learn the Name of Each Point is as Follows:—
4 Cardinal or Principal Points—N., S., E., W.
4 Half-Cardinal or Quadrantal—N.E., N.W., S.E.,
S.W.
The above Principal Points have their Names
printed on them. From these you can get the Names
of all the other Points.
8 Intermediate or Three-Letter Points:—They
are the Centre Points between each Cardinal
and Half-Cardinal. Join the Name of the Cardinal to that of the Half-Cardinal and you
have the Intermediate Point. Thus the Intermediate Point between N. and N.E. is N.N.E.
Between N.E. and E. is E.N.E. Similarly the
others are E.S.E., S.S.E., S.S.W., W.S.W.,
W.N.W., and N.N.W.
16 "By" Points:—They are the Points on either
side of a Cardinal or Half-Cardinal and take
their name "by" the next Cardinal. Thus
Points each side of N. are N. by E. and N. by
W.; of N.E. are N.E. by N. and N.E. by E.

Picturesque Old-time Ships
Interest in Lake Union
• One of the most interesting of the
many things to see and do in Seattle is a
visit to the ships in Lake Union, one of
the three large freshwater lakes within
the city limits.
At Lake Union the visitor will see such
old-time sailing ships as the Conqueror,
built in San Francisco some 75 years ago;
the Sea Rover of Blaine, and the Eagle of
Seattle. Besides these picturesque ships
there are scores of transport ships built
during the world war.
One of the "first of its kind" vessels,
now relegated to permanent anchoring
place, is the Diamond Head. This was
the first metal sailing vessel ever built.
She is now 68 years old and serves as an
oil barge for the City Light Company.
The boats can be observed from almost
any place along the lake front, but a real
"close-up," intimate view is afforded from
the southeast corner of the lake near the
dock where the picture "Tugboat Annie"
was filmed.

World Famous Park Still
Primitive Forest
• You will notice on your right as you
enter Vancouver's harbor a thickly wooded promentory. Some 50 years ago, in
the early years of settlement when the
city was still to be conceived, through
the foresight of the early settlers, this
section of land was set aside as a national
reserve, and was given the name it now
bears and which has become world famous, that of Stanley Park.
At any time of the day this park, 1000
acres of beautiful primitive forest, with
lovely lakes, multi-colored and variegated
foliage and giant trees, is entrancing; as
the sun is setting, coloring in rosy red the
snow-capped peaks to the north, tingeing
the waters of the sea a deeper blue and
casting fanciful shadows over water, leaf
and fern, it presents a picture that will
ever be remembered.

Picturesque Old-time Ships
Interest in Lake Union
• One of the most interesting of the
many things to see and do in Seattle is a
visit to the ships in Lake Union, one of
the three large freshwater lakes within
the city limits.
At Lake Union the visitor will see such
old-time sailing ships as the Conqueror,
built in San Francisco some 75 years ago;
the Sea Rover of Blaine, and the Eagle of
Seattle. Besides these picturesque ships
there are scores of transport ships built
during the world war.
One of the "first of its kind" vessels,
now relegated to permanent anchoring
place, is the Diamond Head. This was
the first metal sailing vessel ever built.
She is now 68 years old and serves as an
oil barge for the City Light Company.
The boats can be observed from almost
any place along the lake front, but a real
"close-up," intimate view is afforded from
the southeast corner of the lake near the
dock where the picture "Tugboat Annie"
was filmed.

World Famous Park Still
Primitive Forest
• You will notice on your right as you
enter Vancouver's harbor a thickly wooded promentory. Some 50 years ago, in
the early years of settlement when the
city was still to be conceived, through
the foresight of the early settlers, this
section of land was set aside as a national
reserve, and was given the name it now
bears and which has become world famous, that of Stanley Park.
At any time of the day this park, 1000
acres of beautiful primitive forest, with
lovely lakes, multi-colored and variegated
foliage and giant trees, is entrancing; as
the sun is setting, coloring in rosy red the
snow-capped peaks to the north, tingeing
the waters of the sea a deeper blue and
casting fanciful shadows over water, leaf
and fern, it presents a picture that will
ever be remembered.

Famous "Potlatches"
Are Now Extinct
• Tourists cruising up the east coast of
Vancouver Island are sailing straight into the heart of the "potlatch" country.
But they will never see a potlatch, search
as they may. For potlatches, by decree
of the Canadian government, are now
forbidden.
"Potlatch" is a Chinook Indian word
for feast. In primitive days, Indians
were wont to give potlatches—or great
feasts—to mark special occasions. Students of Indian life differ regarding the
motive for these potlatches; some asserting the reason was strictly altruistic;
some attributing to the Indians a belief
that the more they impoverished themselves the better they were off; and still
other claiming that potlatches were competitive affairs, staged by Indians to emphasize their own importance, with each
succeeding "potlatcher" striving to outdo
his friend in distribution of lavish
presents.
However that may be, "potlatches"
after the coming of the whites developed
into veritable orgies. Indians plunged
themselves into hopeless debt, borrowing
to increase the splendor of their potlatches. And so at last the government
outlawed these historic Indian feasts in
the interests of solvency.
Potlatches were featured by elaborate
Indian dances, also competitive in spirit.
The natives were attired in hideous masks,
often bestial like their totem-poles, and
their faces were painted in war-like colors. The dances were all solo performances, the dancer gyrating alone before
the assembled tribe.

 JULY
Canada's City of Flowers
Forms Apex of Triangle
By Frank Giolma
• I picture you, who are reading these
words, as lolling at ease in a deck-chair
on board one of the C.P.R. Princess
Liners, steaming from Seattle or Vancouver City over a sunlit sea towards the
City of Victoria.
If you are coming from Seattle, you
have been in the largest city for its age,
in the whole of the United States and
probably the' most Nordic as regards
population. You are sailing down the
waters of Puget Sound so named by Captain George Vancouver of the British Navy
in honor of one of his officers. The snow-
crowned mountains on your left, or if
nautically minded, to port or leeward,
form the Olympic or Olympian Range
and are in the State of Washington. The
highest peak is Mount Olympus, 7,913
feet.
As you leave Puget Sound, you will
see Victoria come up on the starboard or
right hand.
• Islands Named for George III.
If you are coming from Vancouver
City, the metropolis of British Columbia
and where they are holding jubilee this
year,"you will pass down Stanley Narrows and so out into the Gulf of Georgia
named by Captain Vancouver in honour
of George III, leaving the open sea to
enter Active Pass between Galiano Island
on your right or starboard, and Mayne
Island on the port bow or left hand.
As you come out of the Pass you see
islands, large and small, seemingly all
around you. Some you will pass quite
close to you, the largest ones being Salt
Spring,- Pender, North and South; Moresby, James Island, Sidney Island and, of
course, the largest of all to the right,
west, or starboard, Vancouver Island, on
which  Victoria is  built.
• Vancouver First Sailed 'Round Island.
If you wish to pick out the islands,
just step over to the main stairway and
there you will find a very comprehensive
map or chart showing the route you have
followed and giving the names of the
different islands which you are passing.
By the way, those two islands on the left
or port, seemingly connected by a causeway, are Discovery and Chatham, as is
usual, in this part of the world, named
by Captain George Vancouver after the
two ships in which he came out from
England in 1792 to take over the Island
from the Spaniards, and in which he
sailed around the whole of the Island, being the first man to do so. Victoria,
the apex of the triangle, is now quite
close in on our right or starboard and we
pass Cadboro Bay, the home of the Royal
Victoria Yacht Club, followed by Oak
Bay residential section of the city, the
famous Oak Bay Golf Links, and as we
swing around to the right or starboard,
we see the picture postcard island and
lighthouse named Trial Island, following

either north or south shores of the Fraser
River, offer delightfully varied scenery,
including farm lands, Douglas fir forests
and rugged mountain scenery. The palatial Harrison Hot Springs Hotel has been
built on the shore of emerald Lake Harrison and a hot-water swimming pool, a
golf-course and hiking or mounted excursions may be enjoyed. It is a delightful two-day or week-end trip from
Seattle. From Vancouver the spa is
reached also by regular Gray Line Tours.

University Theatres
To Extend Season
• Seattle residents are experiencing a new
"high" in cultural life, following announcement by the University of Washington Department of Drama that both
their "distinctive" theatres, the "Studio,"
and the "Penthouse" would remain open
all year long and offer new plays every
week.
These two theatres have been called
"the most unusual showhouses in America." The audiences of both are limited
to 50 and their type of entertainment is
of the highest. Only experienced actors
and actresses are selected for parts and a
professional touch is achieved that is hard
to duplicate.
The Penthouse is of the "intimate"
type, having no stage. All action takes
place in the middle of the large room and
the actors are completely surrounded by
the audience. Among the most successful plays presented during the past year
were "Alien Corn," "Uncle Vanya,"
"Pursuit of Happiness" and "The Importance of Being Earnest."
Reservations are usually filled days before the opening night and seats are at
a premium. The "Penthouse" presents
its plays on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the week and the "Studio" on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each
theatre presents a different play every
week.

Zoo at Woodland Park
Boasts Rare Monkey
• He's just one of hundreds of animals
in the public zoo at Woodland Park,
Seattle, but according to his trainer, he
is the smartest and most important of
the lot. That's Red, 7-year-old Bengal-
Resis monkey, who daily climbs to the
top of a 50-foot ladder and leaps into a
canvas net stretched out on the ground.
His trainer started him off on a 10-foot
ladder and gradually worked him up to
his present "death-defying" leap. Red is
one of the few monkeys of his kind in
captivity. Red and his fellow animals
and birds live in their comfortable quarters in the Woodland Park zoo and are
on exhibition all year long.
• Helen Swope and Good Dining.
From seating 30 guests, Helen Swope's

American Tea Room in the Republic

Fine Oriental Exhibit
• Situated in beautiful Volunteer Park
in Seattle is one of the oustanding Art
museums in the world.. It is the Seattle
Art Museum and its beauties within are
only rivalled by the 26 majestic mountain peaks which are visible from its
porch. From the front of the museum
one gets a fine view of the harbor, as well
as the lofty Cascades to the east and the
Olympics to the west.
Particularly oustanding among the exhibits is the Oriental collection, which
in the fields of Chinese and Japanese art
is of world importance. It is not only
the field of Oriental art that the museum
covers, however, for one entire wing
houses western art, both contemporary
and early.
The museum has had a large attendance since its opening in 1933, with more
than 250,000 visitors-entering the-4oors-
during the year.
The Museum has taken a leading part
in the cultural life of this region as well
as the city. One example of this is the
21st Annual Exhibition of Northwest
Artists, held recently at the Museum, including work by artists from all parts of
the Pacific Northwest.

Watch for this marvellous view as your Canadian Pacific Princess steamer passes through the
First Narrows, entrance to Vancouver's harbor. On the left is West Vancouver, to the right
Prospect Point Signal Station in Stanley Park, which greets ships from all countries of the
world, while approximately 80 miles distant, silhouetted against the sky, towers the magnificent
snow-capped peak of Mt. Baker.
Vancouver Is Famous
As Golf Centre
• Vancouver has won fame in recent
years as a golfers' paradise, with 18
courses open and in play throughout the
12 months of the year.
Included in the clubs are Shaughnessy,
Jericho, Vancouver Golf and Country
Club, Marine Drive, Point Grey, Hastings
Park, Langara, Quilchena, University,
Gleneagles and Fraser View. Shaughnessy, one of the most testing courses on
the Pacific Coast, will be the venue of
the $5,000 professional event during July
for which entries have already been received from the outstanding pros on the
North American continent.
Among professionals who have already
signified their intention of playing in this
event, the first of a Gold Trail which
will include Victoria, Seattle and Portland, are Hagen, Sarazen, Horton Smith,
Diegel, Runyan, Craig Wood, Mehlhorn,
the Dutra brothers, Revolta, Armour,
Harry Cooper and many others. Professionals from clubs on the Pacific Coast
from Vancouver to Mexico are also sending in entries for this international event.

World Famous Park Still
Primitive Forest
• You will notice on your right as you
enter Vancouver's harbor a thickly wooded promentory. Some 50 years ago, in
the early years of settlement when the
city was still to be conceived, through
the foresight of the early settlers, this
section of land was set aside as a national
reserve, and was given the name it now
bears and which has become world famous, that of Stanley Park.
At any time of the day this park, 1000
acres of beautiful primitive forest, with
lovely lakes, multi-colored and variegated
foliage and giant trees, is entrancing; as
the sun is setting, coloring in rosy red the
snow-capped peaks to the north, tingeing
the waters of the sea a deeper blue and
casting fanciful shadows over water, leaf
and fern, it presents a picture that will
ever be remembered.

Pacific Coast Mountains
Home of Quaint Living Fossil
By Montague A. Phillips, F.L.S.
• From Alaska to Mexico stretches the
tremendous Cordilleran Highland. Here
today exists the only active volcanoes on
the North American continent. Here,
too, are mighty glaciers still. And here,
too, on the western slopes of the mountains which stretch from British Columbia to California there survives a quaint
little animal which is really a living fossil.
He was discovered about a century ago
and is named the mountain beaver.
Rather more than a foot long, the
mountain beaver has a bunt nose, small
eyes and ears, a short tail and is grey to
black in color with a white spot at the
base of the ear. In spite of its size, it is
said to be the only survivor of a very
ancient group of animals from which the
rodents are descended, and for that reason is regarded as a living fossil.
Mountain beavers are burrowers and
construct a wonderful network of tunnels under the soil, but the openings to
their burrows are difficult to find as they
are usually hidden amongst growing vegetation. The nest is globular in shape and
lined with vegetation and within it the
young are reared. Being a timid animal
and slow in its movements, the mountain
beaver spends the day resting, but comes
out at night in search of roots, saplings
and grasses upon which it feeds.
In eating, the mountain beaver uses its
fore-paws to hold food to the mouth, and
sits on its tail while munching. Its
senses of smell and touch are both keen,
but, strange to say, it has no voice. When
alarmed, mountain beavers, like the pocket gophers, signal to each other by rasping the lower front incisors across the
tips of the upper ones.

in quick succession, the residential sections of Fairfield, Beacon Hill Park,
James Bay, the Breakwater, the Outer
Docks and so on into the Inner Harbour,
tying up at the C.P.R. docks, the Provincial Parliament Buildings being on our
right, the Empress Hotel in front, while
the city surrounds us on the south, east
and west.
I am supposing that this is your first
visit and that time is limited. If so, here
are some of the sights you really must
not miss. The Parliament Buildings, containing the fine Connaught Library,
Natural Museum and exceptionally good
totem poles and Indian relics; Beacon
Hill, the chief City Park, 154 acres in
area; Mrs. Pendray's Gardens, on Belleville Street, only about one and one-half
minute's walk from the steamer landing;
the Crystal Pool, with its 150-foot warm
sea-water swimming tank; the residential
section, the small and large gardens, in
which have won for Victoria the name
of "Canada's City of Flowers," and if
time permits, Mr. Butchart's famous
Sunken Gardens, 12 miles from the City
and reached by excellent sightseeing cars;
the Malahat Scenic Drive from which you
will enjoy one of the seven outstanding
views to be seen anywhere in the world.
If you act on this suggestion I know
what will happen. You will thoroughly
enjoy your visit to Victoria and make a
solemn vow to return for a longer holiday next year, to the little bit of Old
England on the Pacific.  .

nental railroads have their terminus
in Seattle; and two national airlines
maintain regular  service.
Through its position as the nearest
port to the Orient and the doorway
to Alaska, 'Seattle embodies the atmosphere of the mysterious Far East
and reflects the vigorous spirit of the
rugged land of gold and salmon.
In the lifetime since its birth—just
86 years ago—the city has capitalized
on all of these advantages to grow to
a metropolis of 412,853. The city's
strategic position has made it possible
for her to become the financial, shipping, transportation and industrial
centre of the Pacific Northwest.
Endowed with a mild climate, and
its many unequalled water facilities,
Seattle is a sportsman's paradise. The
vacationist may fish in the widely
scattered waters of Puget Sound,
reaching from a point far below Seattle to the San Juan Islands, and even
further.
With its 2,000 miles of inland cruising water the Pacific Northwest is
also a yachting paradise. There are
two yacht clubs in Seattle, one in
Tacoma and others in Vancouver and
Victoria, B. C, and Bremerton, Everett  and   Olympia,  Washington.
Vacationists are offered many
cruises on Puget Sound waters, and
hundreds go by boat to colourful Victoria and Vancouver, in British Columbia.
Those who prefer the wooded mountain areas may find an unsurpassed
vacation land at towering, world-famous Mount Rainier. Mount Rainier
is capped with snow the entire year,
and is the destination of many tourist parties. Mount Baker, to the
north, is another mountain vacation
land of coast-wide interest.

 WHILE IN SEATTLE
Seattle Streets
Are Distinctive
At Fourth Avenue and Pike SStreet, as at
42nd Street and 5th Avenue in New York, is
the city's busiest intersection and all Seattle's
finest shopping streets are within a few blocks
of 4th and Pike. Yet each street—2nd, 3rd,
4th, 5th, 6th, Pike, Pine, Stewart, Olive Way,
Union, University, Seneca—have a distinctive
character of their own. On 4th Avenue,—
wide, imposing, clean, flanked by some of the
city's finest office buildings—and 5th Avenue,
—quiet, dignified, luxurious,—are shops which
are not surpassed by any other of their kind
in the world—on either New York's 5th Avenue, London's Regent Street—or, in the matter of artistic treasures appealing to the tourist and visitor, by any similar shops in other
lands. Especially is this true of the shops
in the vicinity of the Olympic Hotel on 4th
and  5th Avenues.
The Shopping Tour
This will not be an affair of looking for
"something to buy" but rather an effort to
hold on to the strings of the purse lest natural
impulse andi eagerness which are the sight of
all the attractive and beautiful—as well as
practical—products, wares, gifts and articles
of the arts and crafts offered in the stores
of the three beautiful cities of Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle—served by the Princess
steamers—cause  it to   open  too  often.
At Berrys Arts and Craft Shop on Fourth
Avenue, opposite the Olympic Hotel, the history, charm and glorious beauty of the Great
Northwest may be delightfully glimpsed in
the unusual art objects there  displayed.
In addition to paintings of typical subjects,
by leading Northwestern artists, native crafts
are represented by genuine Indian-made totem
poles in wood and ivory; fine basketry, moccasins and jewelry of native design and
craftsmanship.

CANADIAN PACIFIC PRINCESS-JULY, 1939
 VANCOUVER
VANCOUVER—Population 246,593. Greater Vancouver, 308,340.
The opening of the palatial new Hotel Vancouver in May, and
the Lion's Gate Bridge, recently completed across the First Narrows, marks a very important milestone in the history of a city
which has grown to metropolitan proportions—Greater Vancouver's
population exceeding 300,000 people—within the brief space of half
a century.
A cairn, with inscribed bronze tablet, placed high up upon the cliff
road to Point Grey, and looking out
over the Gulf of Georgia, marks the
spot where Captain George Vancouver, the discoverer of Burrard Inlet
and the site of the city which is
named after him, met the Spanish
commanders, Galiano and Valdez, in
1792.
With its magnificent harbor, its
fine stores, its scores of industries,
its numerous shipping lines connecting it with all the ports of the
world, its many miles of admirably
lighted streets and avenues and its
innumerable very beautiful gardens
and artistic residential areas, Vancouver people have much in their
city to be proud of. From it there
radiates into the hinterland a number of important thoroughfares connecting the city with the interior and
the  United  States.
One of these roads runs through
the beautiful and fertile Fraser Valley for 70 miles, and then on through
400 miles of mountain and canyon,
where it is known as the Cariboo
Road. That road follows the line
taken by the original Cariboo Road,
which was built under very strenuous conditions in the early 60's of
last century. It leads to Barkerville,
the culminating point of the famous
Cariboo    Gold   Rush.      The    Cariboo
Road is rich in memories of those
colourful  days.
The Pacific Highway passes
through New Westminster (the
"Royal City"), which lies 14 miles
from Vancouver and is older than
that city. New Westminster was
founded by two companies of the
Royal Engineers, sent out by Lord
Lytton (Bulwer Lytton, the novelist),
then Colonial Secretary. This prosperous and beautiful little city was
named by Queen Victoria and one
of the most prized of its possessions
is the autograph letter' written by
Her Majesty when telling of her
choice   of  a  name.
Across Burrard Inlet from Vancouver are situated North Vancouver
and West Vancouver, both shadowed
by snow-capped mountains, Grouse,
Seymour and Hollyburn, all over
4,000  feet  high.

A Primeval Forest
In City's Heart
ONLY the proverbial stone's throw from
Vancouver's modern metropolitan canyons
is Stanley Park, a thousand-acre unspoiled
tree-clad playground where visitors spend interest-crammed hours. And here, just out of
earshot of traffic, only the jibberings of zoo
animals break the stillness of the primeval
forest.
Picturesque bridle paths and shady lanes
criss-cross through forest giants, trees in the
virtual   heart   of  a   great  city.
Most famous, perhaps, and high point of
interest among the Park's many monuments is
the Harding Memorial, erected where the first
Chief Executive of the United States to set
foot on Canadian soil, renewed the friendship
of the two great nations.
Where the towering timbers give way to
green veldts, there may be the shrill call, "A
hundred runs for six wickets," as cricketers
pause   for   afternoon   tea   and   crumpets.

Le  "Princess   Irene," which the Admiralty report  states was accidentally  blown   up  in   Sheerness   Harbour,   was  at the   time  of  her   disaster  one   of  tl
xiliary vessels of the Navy.    She was a newly built liner, of 5934 gross tonnage, with  turbine  engines and oil-fired boilers, belonging to  the Canadian  Pacif
Railway Company, heing designed for the Pacific trade.     The   loss of Jife is   beliaved to be about 270.—[Photo, by Newspaper Illustrations.']

AND IDENTICAL WITH THE ILL-FATED VESSEL.
The Admiralty announced on the night of May 27 that H.M. Auxiliary-Ship "Princess Irene" had been accidentally blown up in Sheerness Harbour that
morning. It is believed at moment of writing that the death-roll numbered 270, including crew and dockyard workmen. Three men were ashore at the time, and
one survivor was picked up severely injured. The explosion was terrific. The " Princess Irene " was onevof two large steamers completed a short while ago for
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and intended for the Pacific coast trade. Her gross tonnage was 5934. Our photograph shows the "Princess Margaret,"

Hand Woven Tweeds
VISITORS should not miss this unique industry—the only one of its kind this side
of the Atlantic—and a point of interest in
Victoria. The owner tours the mills in Scotland every year, selecting yarns for weaving
up on their own hand-looms. Besides the
Cheviot, Harris, Saxony, Orkney and Shetland
Tweeds—characteristic of Scotland—they also
specialize in light-weight worsted suit-lengths
for men and women. And fancy a hand-
woven Cashmere coat made-to-measure for
$50. It's the ISLAND WEAVERS. See
their looms at 816 Esquimalt Road, and their
shop in the Belmont House, opposite the
Empress Hotel, Victoria, B. C. Vancouver
shop at 818 Howe St.,  Vancouver, B. C.
Kiltie Plaids
THEY'RE designed with a Scotch accent.
The vogue started with the ascension of a
Scottish-born queen to the throne of England.
You can't get through this year smartly, without a new Imported Sports Coat. They're
man-tailored, from genuine Harris Tweeds,
and lined with plaids representing the different
Scottish clans with matching scarves. They're
lovely to look at, thrilling to wear. You
should also see their finest quality fur coats
and scarves. MALLEK'S, at 1212 Douglas

English Lavender
SWEET ENGLISH Lavender, in this country,
grows only in the Pacific Northwest, and
is particularly adapted to the climate of Victoria. Woodwards make a specialty of gathering the flowers and drying them for their
perfume. Attractive lavender sachets are made
in many styles and as souvenirs to mail home
they have proven to be particularly popular.
Leave them the addresses, they will do the
rest—no duty into the U. S. A. Securely packed in stout envelopes for mailing. Tourists
send these lavender sachets instead of postcards. Each only 25c. A. J. WOODWARD

Among them is the famed "Rodex," the coat
that wears so well; and the wonderful Orkney

BRAEMAR Sweaters—the world's most famous Scotch-knit sweaters—are a specialty
at a popular Victoria store. Since 1862, this
store has been importing direct British woollen
apparel. They are now showing Braemar
Sweaters in a huge assortment of Shetland
wools and Indian cashmeres, featuring, of
course, the smart new twin sets. Here are
such famous articles as Burberry Coats for
men and ladies, and hand-loomed Harris and
other Old Country tweeds. British clothing
for children as well as for men and ladies is

 VICTORIA
VICTORIA.—Population of Greater Victoria, 61,216. The Capital
of the far-flung Province of British Columbia; has the rather
Gilbertian distinction of being situated upon an island 80 miles from
the Mainland which constitutes the major portion of B. C. With a
population of 61,216, it is the impressive and beautiful gateway to
Vancouver Island, along the east coast of which Evergreen Playground—as it is sometimes pictures- couver Island and musical Indian
quely  described—a  road  runs  for  a     names have been retained in much of
distance of 186 miles in a northerly
direction. It is necessary to put restraint upon one's superlatives in writing about Vancouver Island, which
is an astonishing
mixture of rugged
mountain and lake
scenery combined
with beautifully situated valleys of well-
tilled agricultural
land, but it will not
be inappropriate to
quote in this connection the lines from
Wordsworth's poem:
"Fair scenes for childhood's opening bloom,
For sportive youth to stray in,
For manhood to enjoy its strength,
And age to wear away in."
Victoria itself, with its imposing and
artistic Parliament Buildings, though
it has an industrial life, it is preeminently a city of exquisite gardens,
beautiful residences and fine streets,
and it has much of an Old World English atmosphere. It has travelled far
from the years of its genesis, a Hudson's Bay fort and settlement, traces
of which are still apparent.
The island as a whole, and particularly the West Coast, is full of historic
atmosphere since its discovery by
Captain James Cook, and the explorations, shortly afterwards, of Captain
George Vancouver and Spanish commanders whose names are commemorated at a number of beauty spots
there and in the names of islands
lying off the B. C. coast. There are
hundreds of Indians living upon Van-

the nomenclature of the island.
Vancouver Island has a width of
anywhere from nine to eighty miles.
Heavily timbered with magnificent
forest, shadowed by
mountains, some of
them over 6,000 feet
in height, and crisscrossed throughout
its length by numerous waterways, this
island, owing to the
fact that it is only
removed from Cap-
tain Vancouver's
day by a brief 150
tmmmmmmmwmMm years, is still a
sportsman's paradise, cougar, bear and deer being
numerous, while its rivers and lakes
and the borderline of sea still teem
with fish of many varieties, notably
salmon and trout.

CANADIAN   PACIFIC   PRINCESS—JULY,   1940
 VICTORIA
Scotch Tweeds Woven
in British Columbia
THE HISTORY of the Scottish Woollen trade
is one of the most interesting and romantic in the world. It has its roots in peat-
moors and heather, lonely cottages and burns,
black-faced shaggy sheep,  and moist weather.
Perhaps the most fascinating study in the
whole industry is that of the raw material.
The Scot explores the earth in ever widening
circles. For his sheep's wool he draws upon
the bright crisp Scottish Cheviot of his own
Border-land, the soft, beautiful crimpy Down
of South England, the sturdy Harris of the
Outer Hebrides, the silky little breed from the
much bombed Shetland Islands, the fine dense
Saxony, the even finer long Marinos from
their native Spain, or their adopted Australia;
and so the circle ever widens and widens, embracing even morel beautiful wools, or hairs,
or furs call them what you will, of the non-
sheep variety, full of exciting possibilities,
such as the silky Chinese antelope, the Pash-
mina, quite wrongly known as Cashmere;
Kipling's "Hairy, wary Unt," or camel; the
shy Vicuna of Peru, Mohairs from Anatolia,
Tasmania, and the Cape; guanacos, llamas,
alpacas, angora rabbits, an endless procession
of four-legged beasts, all of which pay tribute
to the Scottish Spinner, and each of which In
itself offers a fascinating  field for study.
A few years ago a colony of Scottish weavers came to Victoria with their own yarns
and looms and applied themselves to the task
of adapting the inimitable Scotch yarns to
the lighter weight and less gloomy colours
demanded  by  the  New World.
The venture in this most ancient, beautiful and most useful of arts has been eminently successful and to-day the hand-woven
products of the Island Weavers are found as
far afield as the most exclusive sartorial
houses of New York and Chicago. The
tweeds are woven in the most astonishing variety of yarns, Cheviot, Saxony, Harris, Camel-
hair, Angora, Cashmere, to mention a few,
and all in the very latest and most fashionable   colours.

Linen
From the hands of the farmer the flax
comes into the possession of the spinner, who
subjects it to careful hand processes of hackling and combing and cleaning and dressing
in preparation for the spinning machines.
These intricate pieces of machinery subject
the raw flax to a wonderful bange, for they
transform the fibre first into a fine, firm
yarn, which, strengthened and hardened by
the natural gum of the flax plant, is ready
for the weaver.
When it leaves the looms, the cloth has a
brown, coarse, rough appearance, an the
creating of a beautiful air of pure unblemished
white, without injury to the natural strength
of the fabric, is the pride of the Irish bleacher,
and in his task he is without a peer. The
cloth is then treated and retreated with repeated boilings and spreadings on the grass,
until a snowy, flawless white is attained. But
the bleacher's work Is not done until he has
"finished" the cloth. This in itself is a laborious task, including, as it does, the starching and beeling of the cloth. Scrupulous and
exact examination of the cloth follows and
seldom does imperfect cloth reach the consumer. As at the beginning and at the end,
so all the way along, there is care and still
more care, to insure that a reputation for
quality and exceUence so well earned and
highly esteemed is worthily maintained and
upheld.

How To Shop
In Victoria
Victoria has been widely known for more
than seventy-five years as a big shopping
centre for English and Scotch woollens. It is
indeed a shopper's paradise.
In early days, goods were shipped by freight
from British ports via Cape Horn, taking
months to reach their destinations. Buying
was done by buyers going abroad each year
and only a very few of the older British exporters sent their travellers to Canada. Today, however, a great many of the finest
British firms send their representatives to
Canada with trunks full of woollen samples
and sample or model garments, covering the
trade from Quebec City to Victoria, B. C.
The climate of B. C. is so" much like the
British Isles, and the woollens, tweeds, scarves,
etc.; seem so much needed here on the Pacific
coast; the visitor will find that few cities in
Canada show the quality and assortment of
merchandise that the Victoria shops offer.
There are five principal shopping streets in
Victoria—Government Street, Douglas Street,
Yates Street. View Street and Fort Street.
GOVERNMENT STREET
GOVERNMENT STREET — Here (and on
Fort Street, described below) will be found
several of the antique shops which are such
a notable feature of Victoria and where those
who are devoted to the collection! of old china,
silver, glass and furniture will find much to
delight them. Along this street—on which are
many of the banks, business houses and cable
offices, and where you will see men striding
along in flannel trousers, tweed coats, brogues
and swinging a stick as you do in England—
there are, also, shops which specialize in British woollen apparel, Scotch knit sweaters,
tweeds, Shetland wools, Indian cashmeres,
famed Burberry coats and, indeed, British
clothing for men and women and children
which in variety and quality is wonderfully
appealing. Then, too, there are the English
china shops on this street, stocking such famous makes as Spode, Royal Worcester and
Wedgwood, beautiful china which can be
passed down as heirlooms. There are gift
shops  and  a famous chocolate  shop.    Govern-

Old Country Sweets
WHO hasn't heard of Old Country sweets

assortment of English sweets or toffees. No
gift, taken home to friends or relatives will
be more appreciated than an assortment of
these confections. A suggestion is a mixture
of some 150 different varieties of imported
English candies and toffees. One lb., 75c;

IT WOULD be hard to imagine a more ideal

tiled shower and washroom. Separate toilet
and garage. The finest of furnishings. Adjacent to the Court is the modern hotel. CRAIG-
FLOWER  BUNGALOW  COURT.
FORT  STREET
FORT STREET—Three blocks up Government Street is Fort Street. Immediately one
turns into Fort Street, or strolls along its
parallel street, View Street, one is reminded
of the busy shopping streets of an English
town; it might be Market Street or the Petty
Cury in Cambridge, or a street off the High
Street in Oxford. Here are curio and gift
shops full of enchanting treasures. And Jewellery stores offering English china and silverware. There is a flower store, too, which specializes in English seeds. At the corner of
Douglas, a splendid drug store. Continuing
out Fort Street, you come to still more antique shops; indeed, shops crammed full of
fine furniture, the finest English silver, Georgian silver, Old Rolled Sheffield Plate, rare
china and glass.
VIEW STREET
VIEW STREET—-We all know the shop with
the splendid reputation to which everyone
flocks, but there are not a few of us! which
like the shop which is quiet . . . distinctive.
And if, when you are in Victoria, you are
looking for something that is really different
you will find it on View Street. The leading
florist in the city is on this street. And the
nicest candy shop, and an English woollen
shop for women with exclusive tailored suits.

DOUGLAS AND YATES ST.
DOUGLAS AND YATES STREETS-~These,
with Government Street, are the city's chief
business streets—splendidly wide with a spaciousness that is exhilarating—and where will
be found the majority of the stores catering
to one's everyday needs. There are elegant
dress and millinery shops on both these streets
as well as those exclusive men's shops for
which combine both. And in these shops are
featured such articles as woollens, English
coats, British tweed and camel hair coats,
imported knitted suits, scarves, sweaters, English sport hats, gloves. In clan tartans, these
shops are a paradise for those with Scottish
names. Anyone with a good old Scottish name
can get his particular plaid belonging to his
ancestors, in pretty silk ties, mufflers, sweaters, socks, not to mention other articles which
are well nigh innumerable. Imported jewellery, art objects and chinaware which make
genuinely distinctive gifts, are to be found on
these streets. On Yates one will find a delightful English Toffee Shop and imported
British Yarns and lovely Children's Wear at
Fowler's.
English Silverware
The earliest domestic silver of English origin
existing today is probably dated about 1515,
but no great quantity was made until silver
metal became plentiful in England during the
reign of Elizabeth, when Spanish ships loaded
with silver from the new world, were captured by Drake and Hawkins and brought to
England.

formulas, the secrets of which have been
carefully guarded and have never gone beyond
the walls of the Rogers establishment. All are

will find a happy hunting ground for English
silver, both old and new. If made and dated
prior to 1830, it is admitted into tbe United
States  duty  free.
If made since that date, the highest quality
English silver is at any rate considerably
cheaper than the same quality English silver
would be in the United States, and on this
account is one of the logical items to buy
when on a visit to Canada.
In the matter of valuable old silverware,
Victoria is unique on the North American continent. Many of the early settlers belonged
to well-known families in the Old Country.
When they came to what was then the Colony
of Vancouver Island, they brought with them
their furniture and silver plate, some of it
of priceless value.
English China
In England, two distinct principal types of
ware are manufactured. Bone China and
Semi-porcelain or Earthenware. Bone China*
as its name implies, contains a large percentage of ground bone ash, which gives lt a trass-
lucency and a strength and ring which is
unsurpassed. It contains also china clay and
stone. Bone china should not be confused
with Continental or Oriental porcelain, which,
while translucent and hard, is also brittle.
One of the finest examples of this is Wedgwood Queensware, which has been on the
market  since  176S.
Earthenware, on the other hand, contains
flint and stone and two different clays. It is
dense in appearance and not so costly to i
ufacture.

Probably few people realize that it takes
several hundred highly skilled craftsmen and
centuries of experience to create a tingle
plate.
One is often asked who makes the finest
English china. To this question we can only
answer that none of the seven firms, member*
of the Fine China Association—Cauldon Potteries Ltd., Coalport China Co. Ltd., W. T.
Copeland & Sons (Spode), Doulton ft Co. Ltd.,
Mm tons Ltd., Josiah Wedgwood ft Sons Ltd.,
Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. Ltd.—would
claim superiority—equality, yes—and we would
add further that when you select a pattern
from any of these firms you can buy none
better.
• A recent visitor from the East in
Alaska tells the story that while in
the country he saw a sign reading,
"City Limits of Los Angeles." His
comment was: "We always have
wondered just where the city limits
of Los Angeles ended. Now we
know."

A Beauty  Comes to Gaff
Newcastle Island Trip
Unexcelled Outing
NEWCASTLE ISLAND—Two and a
half hours from Vancouver, in the
island-studded Gulf of Georgia, lies
Newcastle Island, a veritable paradise for visitors who enjoy a short
sea cruise. Canadian Pacific steamers run direct to Newcastle Island
from Vancouver, sailing through a
vast inland sea which excels the
beauty of the famed Japanese cruise.
Newcastle Island offers a spacious
dancing pavilion, refreshment booths,
playgrounds with covered tables,
sandy bathing beaches, a fresh water outdoor wading pool, and a large
athletic ground. It is, possibly, the
finest one-day outing on the West
Coast.
For   tourists   motoring,   the   Victoria
Auto  Court at 99  Gorge   Road West,
Victoria,  B. C.»  is  unsurpassed.
Cling To Your Princess
When you get ashore—keep the
Canadian Pacific Princess magazine
in your possession for reference to
the advertisers therein. They're the
most representative in the Pacific
Northwest, and we are happy to present their messages to travellers on
Princess steamers.
Here's a scene, enacted thousands of
times every summer, near Brentwood
Bay, on Vancouver Island, as a lucky
fisherman brings a big 30-pound
spring salmon to gaff after a stirring
battle. British Columbia's coastal
waters teem with these famous game
fish which, as tyees, sometimes attain
a weight of 80 pounds.
BRENTWOOD BAY—Twelve miles
from Victoria, beautiful Brentwood
Bay has its setting amidst pines and
cedars delightful to the tourist seeking beauty of scenery and calm repose combined with the other necessary attributes to make a vacation
one that is really attractive in its
peaceful surroundings. And here
there is not a more delightful place
to spend a vacation than at "Brenta
Lodge."
Added to this is the joy of the sport-'
ing fisherman, for here at Brentwood
Bay the King Salmon and the Cohoes
abound.   Your fishing trip can be arranged through "Lucky Lee."

BRAEMAR Sweaters—the world's most famous Scotch-knit sweaters—are a specialty
at a popular Victoria store. Since 1862, this
store has been importing direct British woollen
apparel. They are now showing Braemar
Sweaters in a huge assortment of Shetland
wools and Indian cashmeres, featuring, of
course, the smart new twin sets. Here are
such famous articles as Burberry Coats for
men and ladies, and hand-loomed Harris and
other Old Country tweeds. British clothing
for children as well as for men and ladies is
a feature of this well-known store. W. & J.

 VICTORIA
VICTORIA.—Population of Greater Victoria, 61,216. The Capital
of the far-flung Province of British Columbia; has the rather
Gilbertian distinction of being situated upon an island 80 miles from
the Mainland which constitutes the major portion of B. C. With a
population of 61,216, it is the impressive and beautiful gateway to
Vancouver Island, along the east coast of which Evergreen Playground—as it is sometimes pictures-     couver    Island    and   musical   Indian
quely described—a road runs for a
distance of 186 miles in a northerly-
direction. It is necessary to put restraint upon one's superlatives in writing about Vancouver Island, which
is an astonishing
mixture of rugged
mountain and lake
scenery combined
with beautifully situated valleys of well-
tilled agricultural
land, but it will not
be inappropriate to
quote in this connection the lines from
Wordsworth's poem:
4'Fair scenes for childhood's opening bloom,
For sportive youth to stray in,
For manhood to enjoy its strength,
And age to wear away in."
Victoria itself, with its imposing and
artistic Parliament Buildings, though
it has an industrial life, it is preeminently a city of exquisite gardens,
beautiful residences and fine streets,
and it has much of ^,n Old World English atmosphere. It has travelled far
from the years of its genesis, a Hudson's Bay fort and settlement, traces
of which are still apparent.
The island as a whole, and particularly the West Coast, is full of historic
atmosphere since its discovery by
Captain James Cook, and the explorations, shortly afterwards, of Captain
George Vancouver and Spanish commanders whose names are commemorated at a number of beauty spots
there and in the names of islands
lying off the B. C. coast. There are
hundreds of Indians living upon Van-
PAGE  FOUR
names have been retained in much of
the nomenclature of the island.
Vancouver Island has a width of
anywhere from nine to eighty miles.
Heavily timbered with magnificent
forest, shadowed by
mountains, some of
them over 6,000 feet
in height, and crisscrossed throughout
its length by numerous waterways, this
island, owing to the
fact that it is only
removed from Captain Vancouver's
day by a brief 150
hhbhhbbh^hi years, is still a
sportsman's paradise, cougar, bear and deer being
numerous, while its rivers and lakes
and the borderline of sea still teem
with fish of many varieties, notably
salmon and trout.

blossom in the Empress gardens. Its velvety
lawns beneath the shade of great trees invite
alike the dreamer or the socially inclined.
SPORTS—Golf is played the year
round in Victoria and seven courses
invite the visitor to try the royal
and ancient game. More than 30 resorts, within easy driving distance
of the city, offer such varied pastimes as golf, swimming, sea fishing,
trout fishing, boating, horseback riding and tennis. Average winter day
temperature is 42 degrees above zero,
which permits golf, motoring, riding,

horse-racing, badminton, football,
rugby and grass hockey the year
round.

Scotch Tweeds Woven
in British Columbia
THE HISTORY of the Scottish Woollen trade
is one of the most interesting and romantic in the world. It has its roots in peat-
moors and heather, lonely cottages and burns,
black-faced  shaggy sheep,  and moist weather!
Perhaps the most fascinating study in the
whole industry is that of the raw material.
The Scot explores the earth in ever widening
circles. For his sheep's wool he draws upon
the bright crisp Scottish Cheviot of his own
Border-land, the soft, beautiful crimpy Down
of South England, the sturdy Harris of the
Outer Hebrides, the silky little breed from the
much bombed Shetland Islands, the fine dense
Saxony, the even finer long Marinos from
their native Spain, or their adopted Australia;
and so the circle ever widens and widens, embracing even more beautiful wools, or hairs,
or furs, call them what you will, of the non-
sheep variety, full of exciting possibilities,
such as the silky Chinese antelope, the Pash-
mina, quite wrongly known as Cashmere;
Kipling's "Hairy, wary Unt," or camel; the
shy Vicuna of Peru, Mohairs from Anatolia,
Tasmania, and the Cape; guanacos, llamas,
alpacas, angora rabbits, an endless procession
of four-legged beasts, all of which pay tribute
to the Scottish Spinner, and each of which in
itself offers a fascinating  field for study.
A few years ago a colony of Scottish weavers came to Victoria with their own yarns
and looms and applied themselves to the task
of adapting the inimitable Scotch yarns to
the lighter weight and less gloomy colours
demanded  by  the  New World.
The venture in this most ancient, beautiful and most useful of arts has been eminently successful and to-day the hand-woven
products of the Island Weavers are found as
far afield as the most exclusive sartorial
houses of New York and Chicago. The
tweeds are woven in the most astonishing variety of yarns, Cheviot, Saxony, Harris, Camel-
hair, Angora, Cashmere, to mention a few,
and all in the very latest and most fashionable   colours.

Linen
From the hands of the farmer the flax
comes into the possession of the spinner, who
subjects it to careful hand processes of hackling and combing and cleaning and dressing
in preparation for the spinning machines.
These intricate pieces of machinery subject
the raw flax to a wonderful bange, for they
transform the fibre first into a fine, firm
yarn, which, strengthened and hardened by
the natural gum of the flax plant, is ready
for the weaver.
When it leaves the looms, the cloth has a
brown, coarse, rough appearance, an the
creating of a beautiful air of pure unblemished
white, without injury to the natural strength
of the fabric, is the pride of the Irish bleacher,
and in his task he is without a peer. The
cloth is then treated and retreated with repeated boilings and spreadings on the grass,
until a snowy, flawless white is attained. But
the bleacher's work is not done until he has
"finished" the cloth. This in itself is a laborious task, including, as it does, the starching and beeling of the cloth. Scrupulous and
exact examination of the cloth follows and
seldom does imperfect cloth reach the consumer. As at the beginning and at the end,
so all the way along, there is care and still
more care, to insure that a reputation for
quality and excellence so well earned and
highly esteemed is worthily maintained and
upheld.

How To Shop
In Victoria
Victoria has been widely known for more
than seventy-five years as a big shopping
centre for English and Scotch woollens. It is
indeed a shopper's paradise.
In early days, goods were shipped by freight
from British ports via Cape Horn, taking
months to reach their destinations. Buying
was done by buyers going abroad each year
and only a very few of the older British exporters sent their travellers to Canada. Today, however, a great many of the finest
British firms send their representatives to
Canada with trunks full of woollen samples
and sample or model garments, covering the
trade from Quebec City to Victoria, B. C.
The climate of B. C. is so much like the
British Isles, and the woollens, tweeds, scarves,
etc.; seem so much needed here on the Pacific
coast; the visitor will find that few cities in
Canada show the quality and assortment of
merchandise that the Victoria shops offer.
There are five principal shopping streets in
Victoria—Government Street, Douglas Street,
Yates Street. View Street and Fort Street.
GOVERNMENT STREET
GOVERNMENT STREET — Here (and on
Fort Street, described below) will be found!
several of the antique shops which are such
a notable feature of Victoria and where those
who are devoted to the collection of old china,
silver, glass and furniture will find much to
delight them. Along this street—on which arfl
many of the banks, business houses and cable
offices, and where yon will see men striding
along in flannel trousers, tweed coats, brogues
and swinging a stick as you do in England—
there are, also, shops which specialize in British woollen apparel, Scotch knit sweaters,
tweeds, Shetland wools, Indian cashmeres,
famed Burberry coats and, indeed, British
clothing for men and women and children
which in variety and quality is wonderfully
appealing. Then, too, there are the English
china shops on this street, stocking such famous makes as Spode, Royal Worcester and
Wedgwood, beautiful china which can be
passed down as heirlooms. There are gift
shops and a famous chocolate shop.    Govern-

Old Country Sweets
WHO hasn't heard of Old Country sweets
and toffees? When in either Vancouver
or Victoria no one should fail to obtain an
assortment of English sweets or toffees. No
gift, taken home to friends or relatives will
be more appreciated than an assortment of
these confections. A suggestion is a mixture
of some 150 different varieties of imported
English candies and toffees. One lb., 75c;
2 lb., $1.35. THE ENGLISH SWEET SHOP

IT WOULD be hard to imagine a more ideal
setting for a Bungalow Court than at historical Craigflower, on the main highway, 3%
miles from Victoria. Canoes and boats for
cruising. Other recreations are tennis courts,
putting greens and riding. Each bungalow
comprises living-room with lounge; gas circu-
. lating heat; bedroom, kitchen with gas range;
tiled shower and washroom. Separate toilet
and garage. The finest of furnishings. Adjacent to the Court is the modern hotel. CRAIG-
FLOWER BUNGALOW  COURT.
FORT STREET
FORT STREET—Three blocks up Government Street is Fort Street. Immediately one
turns into Fort Street, or strolls along its
parallel street, View Street, one is reminded
of the busy shopping streets of an English
town; it might bo Market Street or the Petty
Cury in Cambridge, or a street off the High
Street in Oxford. Here are carlo and gift
shops full of enchanting treasures. And jew-
ellery stores offering English china and silverware. There is a flower store, too, which specializes in English seeds. At the corner of
Douglas, a splendid drug store. Continuing
out Fort Street, you come to still more antique shops; indeed, shops crammed full of
fine furniture, the finest English silver, Georgian silver, Old Rolled Sheffield Plate, rare
china and glass.
VIEW STREET
VIEW STREET—We all know the shop with
the splendid reputation to which everyone
flocks, but there are not a few of us which
like the shop which is quiet . . . distinctive.
And if, when you are in Victoria, you ar©
looking for something that is really different
you will find it on View Street. The leading
florist in the city is on this street. And the
nicest candy shop, and an English woollen
shop for women with exclusive tailored suits.

DOUGLAS AND YATES ST.
DOUGLAS AND  YATES  STREETS—These,
with Government Street, are the city's chief
business streets—splendidly wide with a spaciousness that is exhilarating—and where will
be found the majority of the stores catering
to one's everyday needs. There are elegant
dress and millinery shops on both these streets
as well as those exclusive men's shops for
which combine both. And in these shops are
featured such articles as woollens, English
coats, British tweed and camel hair coats,
imported knitted suits, scarves, sweaters, English sport hats, gloves. In clan tartans, these
shops are a paradise for those with Scottish
names. Anyone with a good old Scottish name
can get his particular plaid belonging to bis
ancestors, in pretty silk ties, mufflers, sweaters, socks, not to mention other articles which
are well nigh innumerable. Imported jewellery, art objects and chinaware which make
genuinely distinctive gifts, are to be found on
these streets. On Yates one will find a delightful English Toffee Shop and imported
British Yarns and lovely Children's Wear at
Fowler's.
English Silverware
The earliest domestic silver of English origin
existing today is probably dated about 1510,
but no great quantity was made until silver
metal became plentiful in England during tbe
reign of Elizabeth, when Spanish ships loaded
with silver from the new world, were captured by Drake and Hawkins and brought to
England.

Guarded Secrets
If ERE is a product that actually goes to the
" four corners of the earth. They are
Rogers' Chocolates which has enjoyed popularity for over fifty years. The original proprietor, C. W. Rogers, possessed recipes and
formulas, the secrets of which have been
carefully guarded and have never gone beyond
the walls of the Rogers establishment. All are
in his own handwriting and now in the possession of the present proprietor, Wm. A. Lamb,
ROGERS' CHOCOLATES, 913 Government St.,
Victoria,  B. C.
will find a happy hunting ground for English
silver, both old and new. If made and dated
prior to 1830, it is admitted into the United
States duty  free.
If made since that date, the highest quality
English silver is at any rate considerably
cheaper than the same quality English silver
would be in the United States, and on this
account is one of the logical items to buy
when on a visit to Canada.
In the matter of valuable old silverware,
Victoria is unique on the North American continent. Many of the early settlers belonged
to well-known families in the Old Country.
When they came to what was then the Colony
of Vancouver Island, they brought with them
their furniture and silver plate, some of it
of priceless value.
English China
In England, two distinct principal types of
ware are manufactured. Bone China and
Semi-porcelain or Earthenware. Bone China,
as its name implies, contains a large percentage of ground bone ash, which gives lt a trans-
lucency and a strength and ring which Is
unsurpassed. It contains also china clay and
stone. Bone china should not be confused
with Continental or Oriental porcelain, which,
while translucent and hard, is also brittle.
One of the finest examples of this is Wedgwood Queensware, which has been on the
market since 1763.
Earthenware, on the other hand, contains
flint and stone and two different clays. It is
dense in appearance and not so costly to manufacture.

Probably few people realize that it takes
several hundred highly skilled craftsmen and
centuries of experience to create a single
plate.
One is often asked who makes the finest
English china. To this question we can only
answer that none of the seven firms, members
of the Fine China Association—Cauldon Potteries Ltd., Coalport China Co. Ltd., W. T.
Copeland & Sons (Spode), Doulton & Co. Ltd.,
Mint ons Ltd., Josiah Wedgwood & Sons Ltd.,
Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. Ltd.—would
claim superiority—equality, yes—and we would
add further that when you select a pattern
from any of these firms you can buy none
better.
• A recent visitor from the East in
Alaska tells the story that while in
the country he saw a sign reading,
"City Limits of Los Angeles." His
comment was: "We always have
wondered just where the city limits
of Los Angeles ended. Now we
know."

Is It The Climate?
PERHAPS its the fact that the Victoria climate is so similar to that of parts of the
British Isles that British Woollens seem so
much at home in this "Little Bit of Old England." Certain it is that, particularly during

A Beauty  Comes to Gaff
Here's a scene, enacted thousands of
times every summer, near Brentwood
Bay, on Vancouver Island, as a lucky
fisherman brings a big 30-pound
spring salmon to gaff after a stirring
battle. British Columbia's coastal
waters teem with these famous game
fish which, as tyees, sometimes attain
a weight of 80 pounds.
BRENTWOOD BAY—Twelve miles

cedars delightful to the tourist seeking beauty of scenery and calm repose combined with the other necessary attributes to make a vacation
one that is really attractive in its

Added to this is the joy of the sporting fisherman, for here at Brentwood
Bay the King Salmon and the Cohoes
abound. Your fishing trip can be arranged through "Lucky Lee."

It has behind it an advertising investment of nearly
one-half million dollars.
All cases of infringement in

"Good  name  in  man  and
woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of
their souls;
Who steals my purse, steals
trash: 'tis something,
nothing;
'Twas mine, 'tis his, and

But he that filches from
me my good name
Robs me of that which not
enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed."    —Shakespeare.
TRIP 1: GRAND TOUR OF VICTORIA
^HIS trip is for passengers arriving from Seattle or Vancouver who want a tour of our
beautiful city before continuing on to Seattle or Vancouver by the same steamer. Trip
includes our business section, Chinatown, old English Residential Section, Marine Drive, Beacon
Hill Park, Pendray's famous Topiary Bird and Animal Gardens, where trees and shrubs are trimmed
to the shapes of birds and beasts, and many other Points of Interest guaranteeing your outgoing
steamer.
TRIP 2: BUTCHART'S GARDENS and VICTORIA CITY
T^ WO hours of the finest sightseeing offered by any sightseeing
Company in Victoria.   The VETERAN'S ROYAL BLUE LINE is
the only company in Victoria making this special tour at our low rate.
This trip can be made by passengers arriving from Seattle at 12:50 p.m.
and returning to Seattle at 5 p.m. Can also be made by passengers arriving
from Vancouver at 2:40 p.m. and proceeding to Seattle at 5 p.m.
\\7 E can make this tour at this low rate because we do not pay dock
concessions, therefore, we pass on to our patrons this benefit in a
longer drive and a lower rate.   The Veteran's Royal Blue Line is the only
Company operating 1937 Motor Coaches.
T> OYAL BLUE COACHES are NOT on the dock.   They are on the
public street at the entrance to the wharf.   Walk another hundred
feet and save money.
When you arrive at Victoria on the steamer and you are walking along the plank walk-ways which lead to
the street, you are in a hurry and you want a sightseeing tour. Before you reach the street you come to the men
who are termed tourist solicitors by some of our patrons. If you refuse to go down the stairs and patronize their
company by paying a higher price then you may be strongly recommended by them to go on one of their subsidiary
lines, which are also lined up on the street in front of the Royal Blue Line Motor Tours.
The Royal Blue Line Motor Tours is one company in Victoria that does not belong to a combine and it is on
account of this mere fact that you are enabled to enjoy excellent sightseeing tours at reasonable rates while at
Victoria. There is no reason why you should not insist on the Royal Blue Line Motor Tours. Be fair to yourself and
friends, for if the Royal Blue Line Motor Tours were to withdraw from Victoria it seems that everyone would be
compelled to pay much higher rates. Why not reason it out! Would not a company with a monopoly discontinue
operating subsidiary companies at lower rates in competition to themselves ?
Ride with the Veteran's Royal Blue Line for a Better Drive and Lower Rates. The Veteran's Royal Blue Line Insures All Passengers

Ancient Art of Hand-weaving
Flourishes in Victoria
• Victoria is a little bit of the Old
World, and visitors will be interested to
learn that, true to her characteristics,
there has within recent years sprouted up
in her soil that most ancient, and beautiful, but useful of arts, hand-weaving,
which is now flourishing like the proverbial bay-tree, and developing into a thriving industry.
Experts say that climate has much to
do with it, and that Victoria offers the
perfect climate for manufacturing woollens. Be this as it may, it is certain that
the soil has proved very fertile and the
seed of this particular bay-tree has blown
all over Canada, and even flowered as
far afield as the most exclusive sartorial
houses of New York and Chicago.
A colony of Scotch weavers came to
Victoria with their own yarns and looms
and applied themselves to the task of
adapting the inimitable Scotch yarns to
the weight demanded by the warmer
Western climate, the central-heated houses
of the New World, and to the demand for
less gloomy colors than satisfy the conservative and somewhat dour Scot.
This is the only place in the New
World, 816 Esquimalt Road, where genuine Scotch tweeds are woven, and in the
most astonishing variety of yarns, Cheviot, Saxony, Harris, Camel-hair, Angora,
Cashmere, to mention a few, and all in
the very latest and most fashionable
colors.

Island Highway Offers
Motorists' Paradise
• Vancouver Island offers tourists one of
the finest scenic highways in the world
—the Malahat—a road which soars high
over mountain peaks along the east coast,
with incomparable vistas of the Gulf of
Georgia lying at their feet through a
fringe of evergreens.
Leaving Victoria over this highway,
visitors may see the famous reversible
falls at the Gorge where, when the tide
comes in, the river flows in the opposite
direction—away from the sea. Then, in
rapid succession, comes the historic old
Hudson's Bay buildings, Colwood race
track and the Royal Colwood golf course.
Then, up along the tree and fern-bordered
road, the visitor soars up and up and up,
until he sits on the roof of the world at
the Malahat Lookout. Saanich peninsula,
green and geometrical, lies at his feet and
beyond the horizon shimmers far out to
sea over the Gulf of Georgia. And, if
the visitor is particularly favored of the
gods, he may catch an enchanting glimmer of Mount Baker's snowy peaks to the
eastward, 120 miles distant.
Northward still, the highway runs
through farm lands, evergreen forests,
and open meadowlands where oak trees
stand majestically solitary until the visitor comes to Duncan. A picturesque
Indian reserve stands at the southern
edge of the village. Northward again
lies Nanaimo, second largest city on the
Island, a centre of the coal mining industry and a shopping centre.

How to Get Coaches for These Tours
When you leave your boat, walk along the plank walkways until you
reach the street. Look for the large sightseeing coaches which line up straight
across the street. You will see the White Line Coaches amongst them, (Painted
White with Red Band).
Owing to the popularity of the White Line our coaches are the first to
load and seldom more than four or five minutes before setting off.
Follow the crowds to the White Line Coaches, and get the full drive, as
we are the only ones making these excursions.
PLEASE NOTE—The White Line Coaches are not on the dock. Therefore,
in order to take advantage of this Trip, it is most important that you are not
influenced by solicitors of busses on the dock and on the walkway. Walk
another 50 feet and ride with the crowds.

Pacific Northwest WorlcTs
Ideal Yachting Area
® Travellers entering Seattle by ship will
be first of all impressed by the beautiful
picture the city presents when viewed
from the waters of Elliott Bay, but they
probably will wonder, after passing
through the harbor, if everyone in the
v city owns some sort of pleasure boat.
Seattle Chamber of Commerce officials
assure us that everyone on Puget Sound
does not own a pleasure boat, but point
with pride to the fact that the Seattle-
Tacoma area has more registered boats
of this -type than any other area in the
United States other than New York. And
there is a very good reason for this.
The Pacific Northwest is the world's
ideal yachting area. Puget Sound, with
its 2,000 square miles of inland cruising
waters, have a shoreline of 3,000 miles;
British Columbia waters have a shoreline
of 13,000 miles, and Southeastern Alaska,
accessible by way of the scenic Inside Passage, has 8,000 miles. Puget Sound, the
Straits of Juan de Fuca, the Gulf of
Georgia are all protected from the open
sea and safe for small craft. Seattle, one
of the most active of yachting centres, is
especially well endowed with yachting
facilities, with its two Puget Sound bays,
Elliott and Shilshole, and two of its three
fresh water lakes being connected with
the bays by the Lake Washington canal
and locks.
Power and sail boats can be rented,
with competent operators, in Seattle. For
full information call the Tourist Information bureau of the Seattle Chamber of
Commerce.
Japanese and Italian truck-farmers bring
their produce and sell it directly to the
consumer. The market-place on Saturday night is every bit as interesting as
any Persian or Arabian auction. The
"hawkers" sell off the left-over goods to
the highest bidder, many times for less
than the cost of transporting it to
market.

shooting the Cowichan River near Victoria are cut from cedar logs and measure

Picturesque Old-time Ships
Interest in Lake Union
• One of the most interesting of the
many things to see and do in Seattle is a
visit to the ships in Lake Union, one of
the three large freshwater lakes within
the city limits.
At Lake Union the visitor will see such
old-time sailing ships as the Conqueror,
built in San Francisco some 75 years ago;
the Sea Rover of Blaine, and the Eagle of
Seattle. Besides these picturesque ships
there are scores of transport ships built
during the world war.
One of the "first of its kind" vessels,
now relegated to permanent anchoring
place, is the Diamond Head. This was
the first metal sailing vessel ever built.
She is now 68 years old and serves as an
oil barge for the City Light Company.
The boats can be observed from almost
any place along the lake front, but a real
"close-up," intimate view is afforded from
the southeast corner of the lake near the
dock where the picture "Tugboat Annie"
was filmed.

Mid-Summer Flower
Show For Seattle
• Just to demonstrate Seattle's all-year
mild climate, the members of the Seattle
Garden Club will annually hold their
flower exhibits in the middle of the summer, according to the latest announcement of club officials.
In all other sections of the country
flower shows are held in either the spring
of the year or in the early fall, but in
Seattle, flowers bloom all year long and
it  is possible to hold  the show.
Seattle Garden Club members boast
the highest percentage of membership
according to population of any city in
the country, and their flowers embrace
virtually every type and variety. Among
the most famous of their blooms are
chrysanthemums, rhododendrons, lilies
and dahlias.

Scientific Visitors
• Victoria visitors, interested in the

Government had carried out an exhaustive survey of the whole of Canada and
recommended that Saanich offered the

for astrophysical observations. Interesting lectures are also delivered there by
experts.

• Situated in beautiful Volunteer Park
in Seattle is one of the oustanding Art
museums in the world. It is the Seattle
Art Museum and its beauties within are
only rivalled by the 26 majestic mountain peaks which are visible from its
porch. From the front of the museum
one gets a fine view of the harbor, as well
as the lofty Cascades to the east and the
Olympics to the west.
Particularly outstanding among the exhibits is the Oriental collection, which
in the fields of Chinese and Japanese art
is of world importance. It is not only
the field of Oriental art that the museum
covers, however, for one entire wing
houses western art, both contemporary
and early.
The Museum has taken a leading part
in the cultural life of this region as well
as the city. One example of this is the
21st Annual Exhibition of Northwest
Artists, held recently at the Museum, including work by artists from all parts of
the Pacific Northwest .

Auto Camps in B. C
• For tourists motoring, the Canadian

the following auto camps in Victoria and
Vancouver:
Victoria Tourist Camp, 99 Gorge Road

Rainbow Auto Lodge, 5958 Hastings
Street East, Vancouver.
Sunset Lodge, on Grandview Highway
at City Limits, Vancouver.
Check those camps to which you want
to go. All advertising appearing in the
Princess must meet rigid requirements
before publication and, therefore, a careful selection is made in accepting advertising. You can, therefore, depend upon
the advertisers in the Canadian Pacific
Princess.

Disciples of Izaak Walton
Enchanted By B. C.
• Does your heart leap when you feel the
first fierce tug as a big fish takes your
lure; when the scream of your reel tells
you he is solidly hooked?
If it does, go by all means to Vancouver Island. For nowhere else in Canada
— and few other places in the whole
world — can you enjoy better sport.
There, fishermen who demand size in their
quarry, can be accommodated; for British
Columbia's springs, cohoes and tyees are
reckoned amongst the finest big game fish
in the world. And there, too, fly fishermen may practise their art against rainbow, cut-throat and Kamloops trout
which abound in lakes and rivers.
Close in to Victoria, Brentwood, Cowichan Bay and Sooke all are famous for
their spring salmon fishing, with cohoes
running in May and June and a second
later run in September. Further afield,
Qualicum Bay, Parksville Bay, Comox
and Campbell River offer tyee fishing.
These big fellows, running up to 80
pounds, are in season in the last two
weeks in August and the first two weeks
in September and, to Comox and Campbell River, annually come big game fishermen from every quarter of the globe
eager to win the envied buttons of the
Tyee Club. Today, these buttons are
worn with pride in New Zealand, Hawaii,
France, Germany, England, Italy, South
America, California and scores of other
countries, and no fisherman can now be
considered a big league Izaak if he has
failed to win a Tyee button.

Beautiful Peninsula
• "Fair-land."
That is the meaning of Saanich (pronounced San-nitch), a Salish Indian word
which was adopted as the name of the
peninsula at the southern end of Vancouver Island. The peninsula was one of
the earliest districts ever settled on the
Pacific Coast by white Europeans and today it is one of the fairest country-sides
in British Columbia. Originally, Saanich
was the home of mixed farming. But, in
recent years, it has won fame for its production of small fruits, strawberries,
loganberries and cherries, for its commercial flower and bulb culture, poultry
raising, fox farming and commercial seed
culture.

It has earned many pseudonyms in its
half century of existence — Terminal
City; Western Gateway of Canada; the
metropolis of British Columbia; the Halfway House of Empire; etc., etc., and etc.
But it is really the City of Destiny.
Vancouver possesses one of the finest
natural harbors in the world; a harbor
completely land-locked, brooded over by
majestic mountain peaks on the North
Shore and spacious enough to accommodate all the navies of the world. Her
harbor has brought her greatness. Ocean
tonnage has doubled in ten years and
Vancouver today is one of the greatest
grain-shipping ports on the Seven Seas.
Thence, through the narrow pass of
the Lions' Gate, westward bound to the
Orient, sail the finest and fastest line of
ships on the Pacific Ocean •— the great
white Empresses which bring to Canada's
western portal the varied and romantic
products of Oriental craftsmanship. Silk
cargoes, the essence of whose movement is
speed, for silk prices vary on the markets
of the world from day to day, are brought
through Vancouver for the United States'
market, because the white Empresses exceed all other ships in the speed at which
they link Asia to the Americas and countless other lines, flying the flags of all the
world's great maritime nations, have
made the city a regular port of call.
There is one other ultra-modern activity in which Vancouver has also won
rank in North America second to none—
its attraction for tourists. Annually, by
C.P.R. overland route, aboard deep-sea
and coastal lines, by bus and automobile
from south and east, it is estimated that
over 1,000,000 tourists arrive in Vancouver for their summer holidays. And Vancouver, most northerly of the great cities
in the vast evergreen playground of the
Pacific Northwest, offers incomparable
rewards to the lovers of natural beauty.
Sea-trips, mountain climbing, golf, fishing, ski-ing even as late as June, a multitude of bathing beaches, beautiful parks
and unrivalled scenic highways leading
away into the interior of the province are
a few of the widely-diversified attractions the city holds out to its visitors.

Totem Culture Among B.C.
And Alaska Indians
• Few visitors to the Pacific Northwest
and Alaska there are who do not prize
a totem pole among their souvenirs.
Owning a totem, one becomes interested
in the meaning of
the grotesque and
highly colored
figures, for not to
be able to tell the
story of their particular totem pole
to their friends at
home is like settling down to a
good story that
loses its point in
narration.
"The Thunderbird Tootooch
Legends" which may be got at any curio
store from Vancouver to Skagway is the
key to the most important single objects
carved on totem poles and used in decorative arts of the Indian tribes of the
Pacific Northwest.
Totemism was created in the prehistoric age by the fathers of organized
society and improved as the mentality of
the human race developed. Totemistic
societies still function in many parts of
the world, as among the native tribes of
Australia, Korea, and even in modern
Japan.
The functions of the Totemism of the
Indians of the Pacific Northwest, and
especially British Columbia, represent
many aspects. The first Totemic Symbol
was supposed by the ancestors of these
tribes to have floated to their shores from
some unknown source.
Of the aborigines of the Northwest
there were only £.\e tribes that carved
totems. These are Southeast Alaska and
British Columbia and comprised the
Haidas, Tsimshians, Bella Coola, Kwak-
iutl and Nootka. Among the various
kinds of totem poles the most important
are Family Poles, Tribal Totems and
House Posts. The latter are used to sup-
ort the heavy beams in community or
private houses. Tribal totem poles are
the mythological history which would
embrace forms of geneology, charms, evil
spirits, legends and witchcraft. This also
applies to family totems which would also
be inscribed with the individual's greatness gained through potlatches or by
heredity.
The mythological art of the North
Pacific Coast Indians is one of the most
grotesque and beautiful of any native
tribes of the North American Continent.
The symmetrical lines and circles add
tone throughout. One wonders how the
primitive mind was capable of finding so
many ways to add harmony and balance
to each curve.
The above is condensed from "The
Thunderbird Tootooch Legends" by special permission of the author for Canadian Pacific Princess.

Newcastle Island Offers
Delightful Cruise
• Two and a half hours from Vancouver,
in the island-studded Gulf of Georgia,
lies Newcastle Island, a veritable paradise
for visitors who enjoy a short sea cruise.
Canadian Pacific steamers run direct to
Newcastle Island from Vancouver, sailing through a vast inland sea which excels
the beauty of the famed Japanese cruise.
Newcastle Island offers a spacious dancing
pavilion, refreshment booths, playgrounds
with covered tables, sandy bathing
beaches, a fresh water outdoor wading
pool, and a large athletic ground. It is,
possibly, the finest one-day outing on the
West Coast.

Captain George Vancouver Discovered Site of Present City
Courtly Don Quadra . . . Chief Maquinna ... The Massacre
By Noel Robinson
• Capt. George Vancouver was the man
sent out from England to take formal
possession  of  the Northwest  Coast  for
Britain.
Already one of the greatest mariners
of his time, Capt. Vancouver had twice
circumnavigated the globe with his great
teacher, Capt. James Cook. He was, too,
a politic man, with the many-sided genius
required for a great explorer.
Aboard the Discovery, he arrived in
Nootka Sound to meet the courtly Don
Quadra, Spain's envoy. And, in Friendly
Cove, there followed the meeting of three
strangely-assorted men — Capt. Vancouver, Don Quadra and Chief Maquinna,
head of the Nootka tribe. A fine friendship developed amongst them, with both
Quadra and Vancouver being impressed
by the inherent noblity of the Indian.
For Maquinna was handsome, physically
splendid, keenly intelligent and, most remarkable for an Indian, possessed of an
extraordinary humor.
Although negotiations between Capt.
Vancouver and Don Quadra proved abortive, the two leaders remained close
friends. Together they explored the coast,
Capt. Vancouver being the first European
explorer to sail up the Straits of Georgia
into Burrard Inlet, the site of the great
modern city which now bears his name.
Don Quadra's ships also came up the
Straits and today one of Vancouver's
finest bathing beaches is known as Spanish Banks in memory of Spanish ships
which anchored off this shore.
The last glimpse we catch of Chief
Maquinna is a melancholy one — the
massacre of the crew of the fur-trader
Boston by Maquinna and his tribe. Only
two members of the crew escaped death
—Jewett, a blacksmith from Boston,
England; and Thompson, an American.
Twice, while they were prisoners, Jewett

VICTORIA
By NOEL, ROBINSON
VICTORIA—Population of Greater Victoria, 103,000. While Victoria is older, more deep-rooted and more conservative than Voncouver,
it, too, has its industrial side and has felt the stimulus of the late war,
which has increased its population considerably. It has built ships and
thousands of its sons and the
sons of many families all over
Vancouver Island have served
overseas. Moreover, it has the distinction of being the capital city
of the province, though it is situated upon an island 80 miles from
the Mainland at the end nearest
to Vancouver.
Gloriously   Situated
Like its sister city, it is very
gloriously situated and has a mag-
n i f i c e n t view of the Olympic
Mountains on Puget Sound. It has
a more picturesque and historical
background than Vancouver, having developed from a Hudson's
Bay fort settlement—the first
governor of British Columbia, Sir
James Douglas, was previously the
chief factor of the fort—to its
present proud position as one of
the principal ports and naval stations of the province. Perhaps its
residents are proudest of all of
their many stately residences and
exquisite gardens—the latter led
by the famous Butchart gardens,
probably unequalled anywhere else
in Canada.
Victoria's Parliament Buildings
are the most picturesque and
stately in the Dominion, and the
stately   Empress   Hotel,   with   its
Crystal swimming pool, is one of
the most beautiful and spacious
hotels from coast to coast. Many
of its stores, filled with handicraft
articles—a considerable percentage
the work of coast Indians—and
curios constitute a never-ending
source of interest to tourists.
Victoria is, indeed, a tourist
Mecca and, with its Old World atmosphere and situation upon a
wildly beautiful island nearly as
big as Ireland, its attraction for
visitors is very great.

Kipling Enthused
Kipling has written of Victoria as combining the most
admirable features of Bournemouth, Torquay, the Isle of
Wight and the Bay of Naples.
"There is a view," he says,
"when the morning mists peel
off the harbour, of the Houses
of Parliament on the one hand
and a huge hotel on the other,
which, as an example of cun-
ningly-fitted-in waterfronts and
facades, is worth a very long
journey ... I tried honestly
to render something of the colour, the gaiety, and the graci-
ousness of the town and the
Island, but only found myself
piling up unbelievable adjectives."

mous as an anglers' resort, for it
is there that the huge tyee salmon
are caught in large numbers every
year during the fishing season.
Capt. James Cook
The famous navigator, Capt.
James Cook, was the first white
man to land on Vancouver Island
—at Nootka on the West Coast.
And so it became a British possession, following an international
dispute which nearly brought England and Spain to war and necessitated the assembly of a British
fleet at Spithead as a threat. It
was this controversy that resulted
in Captain George Vancouver's advent to the coast in order that he
should take over from the Spanish
representative, Commander Quadra, possession of the island for
Britain.
The association of these two intrepid explorers with a remarkable
Nootka Indian, Chief Maquinna,
constitutes one of the most interesting and picturesque incidents in
the early history of the province.
Picturesque little settlements
scattered along the east coast of
Vancouver Island are a delight to
the passing tourist. The inhabitants draw their livelihood from
agricultural pursuits, from logging
—there are some of the biggest
logging operations in B.C. on the
island—and from fishing. The wild
West Coast is still sparsely inhabited, though there is one thriving community there, the two Al-
bernis, an important centre of the
logging industry.
Throughout the island there are
scattered many pretty summer resorts served by cosy and artistic
hostelries. Duncan, the beautifully
situated and attractive capital of
the Cowichan Valley, where the famous Cowichan sweaters—one of
which was recently formally presented to President Truman—are
made by the Indians, has often
been described as the most English
community outside the Old Country, though its immediate hinterland is alive with loggers (including the bearded Sikh) and Indians.

Charm of Tudor England
Comes To Canada %
Unique in its Old World setting representing a replica of an English baronial hall, "Olde England" Inn, 429
Lampson St., Esauimalt, approximately
1% miles from the center of Victoria,
B. C, attracts visitors from all over
the world.
It is owned and operated by Samuel
Lane. His hobby has been collecting
antiques for the past 15 years. During
this time he dreamed of housing them
in the type of house which he finally
located in 1946 in the picturesque half-
timbered, gabled building reminiscent
of Tudor England. It is set in the
midst of three acres of garden land
surrounded by cedars, firs, fern rockeries and a lawn where the ancient
game of croquet is enjoyed by the visitors. Fruit and vegetables are cultivated for the use of the guests, specialty being in fresh salads. Here you may
stay and enjoy modern comforts surrounded by the charm of a more lei-
surly age.
You are reminded of the history of
medieval England as you enter the spacious hall where a long refectory table,
high-backed wooden chairs and a great
copper canopied fireplace predominates
under the oak beams and paneling of
the ceiling and walls. Furnished with
l*th and 17th century antiques, the
most striking items are a suit of
knight's armor and halberd, a 17th
century Bible box and a few wooden
chests. There are 15th and 16th century
German boar-thrusting swords, silver-
mounted pistols and telescopes which
belonged to the late Sir Henry Trollop
dated 1756. Antiques are reputed to
have been owned by one-time rich
nobility of England, many of whom
have been compelled to sell their
homes and collections.

The Romance of
Irish Belleek   -^->
If you are interested in the fascinating charm of Irish Belleek china, be
sure to see two magnificient pieces
in the beautiful shop of Sydney Reynolds opposite the Empress Hotel. One
is the famous International Center
Piece and the other a ceramic masterpiece named "Prisoner of Love" by
Thomas Campbell. Visitors interested
in this highly translucent, Irish china
may secure literature on the romance
of Irish Belleek.
a mining town on the east coast, is
the most populous on the island
and, next to the capital city, the
oldest settlement. It was originally
settled by coal miners from England and many of the descendants
of the first inhabitants still work
in the mines. Its main thoroughfare is long, narrow and winding,
and it still has many of the characteristics of an English mining
town. Nanaimo—it is named after
an Indian tribe in the neighborhood—is very beautifully situated
and is proud of the possession,
in a remarkably good state of
preservation, of the only remaining bastion of a Hudson's Bay fort
extant upon this continent. Powerfully constructed and of considerable dimensions, this bastion is
now used as a museum by a post
of the Native Sons of British Columbia.
This—of necessity—very sketchy
impression of Victoria and Vancouver Island would not be complete without a concluding reference to Esquimalt, which is so
near that it is almost part of the
capital city. It is the chief Naval
station on the coast and has a
graving dock capable of accommodating the largest sea-going vessels. Indeed it did accommodate the
Queen Elizabeth during the war
when she came there to be reconditioned and to take several thousands of troops across the Pacific.
This port has a very picturesque
history as the Pacific command of
the British fleet was stationed
there in what the late Trader Horn
would have described as "The
Earlies." The names of several
spots at Esquimalt, such as Admirals Road, still commemorate
this historic association.

beautiful places in the whole of
Vancouver Island, have, thanks to
the Provincial Government, at last
been opened up. a large area of
land having been purchased and
set aside for the perpetual use of
the public. These are places which
should be included in the itinerary
of every tourist visiting the Island.
Trails have been opened up,
bridges put across the rivers, fireplaces, tables, seats and conveniences installed, and a day or days
can be spent there enjoying the
beauties of stream and forest.
Litte Qualicum can be reached
by a short drive from either Parksville or Qualicum Beach. Englishman's River Falls is best reached
from Parksville through Erring-
ton; both routes are well marked
by signs, and roads are good. No

Pottery Making Began
In Staffordshire
By BERNARD SHAW
The early history of British pottery
manufacture must inevitably be identified with the county of Staffordshire—
particularly North Staffordshire. Pottery was certainly made there by the
ancient Britons, most of whom used
some form of pottery urn to bury their
dead.
Until the mid-18th century, pottery
making in North Staffordshire was a
peasant or family craft in which the
few mechanical devices used were of
the simplest kind. The ware was sold
to packmen and distributed at great
cost throughout the country. At first
local clays were used almost exclusively but the influence of delftware and
stoneware led to experiments with new
materials and glazes. Coal-firing gradually superseded earlier methods, and
the fact that both clay and coal were
abundantly available largely accounts
for the rapid development of the pottery industry in the North Stafford-
Shire area, now known as the "Potteries."
The Elers Brothers, Dutch silversmiths, probably introduced salt-glazing into the district. Astbury improved
on it, and later he perfected a whiter
and harder body in which he used
white clay mined in Devonshire, and
calcined flint stones were also used.
Improvement in methods of moulding
and mixing (known as the slip) were
made, and the way was gradually prepared for the great developments which
Adams, Wedgewood, Spode, Whieldon,
and other master potters would contribute to the art of Staffordshire.
Colour and coloured "Slip" were the
very earliest forms of decorations. In
the case of simple colour Cobalt was
the first to be used with any success.
The quality of the Staffordshire
chinaware is known and recognized
the world over, and still today the
reputation of English tableware stands
higher than ever, and all Staffordians
are proud to be in the forefront of
those who are upholding the best traditions  of  Staffordshire  pottery.
Irish linen, premier industry of
Northern Ireland, earned $22,000,-
000 in Canadian and U.S. sales in
1950.
Leisurely Victoria
Shoppers' Paradise
Victoria has been widely known
for more than seventy-five years
as a big shopping centre for English and Scotch woollens. It is indeed a shopper's paradise.
In early days, goods were
shipped by freight from British
ports via Cape Horn, taking
months to reach their destinations.
Buying was done by buyers going
abroad each year and only a very
few of the older British exporters
sent their travellers to Canada. Today, however, a great many of the
finest British firms send their representatives to Canada with trunks
full of woollen samples and sample
or model garments, covering the
trade from Quebec City to Victoria, B. C.
The climate of B. C. is so much
like the British Isles and the woollens, tweeds, scarves, etc., seem
so much needed here on the Pacific
Coast, the visitor wil find that few
cities in Canada show the quality
and assortment of merchandise
that the Victoria shops offer.
There are five principal shopping
streets in Victoria—Government
Street, Douglas Street, Yates
Street, View Street and Fort
Street.

VANCOUVER
By NOEL ROBINSON
VANCOUVER—Population 397,140, Greater Vancouver, 568,114.
As the visitor approaches Vancouver by sea he will observe the graceful Lions Gate Suspension Bridge—the longest suspension bridge in the
British Empire—spanning the entrance to Burrard Inlet.
On his right hand he will see a bold and thickly wooded promontory, which, rather more than
80 years ago, was set aside by
Colonel Moody, commander of the
Royal Engineers, who founded
nearby New Westminster, as a national naval reserve. It consists
of 1000 acres of primeval forest
and round its circumference runs
a fine highway, while the forest
itself is intersected by many attractive trails and the city part
of its environment is beautified
by many lovely gardens and several chalets. In its centre is
Beaver Lake, and, at Prospect
Point, which faces out to sea, there
stands a picturesque Totem Pole
which was carved by Chief Ma-
thias Capilano, who was present
at King George the Fifth's Coronation, and whose father visited
King Edward the Seventh at Buckingham Palace.
With the advent of Vancouver
as a city this forest, which is
nearly surrounded by sea, became
its most prized natural possession,
and a little over half a century
ago it was formally dedicated by
Lord Stanley, then Governor-General of Canada, and named after
him.
During the summer of 1936 Vancouver commemorated the Jubilee
of its incorporation and upon that
occasion the Lord Mayor of London, the late Sir Percy Vincent,
attended the ceremonies in state.
Just four years ago the city's Diamond Jubilee was commemorated
upon an elaborate scale within the
perfect setting of Stanley Park, a
series of historical pageants being
bodied forth nightly before many
thousands of spectators for three
weeks upon a stage 150 yards long,
the famous American baritone,
John Charles Thomas, impersonating throughout Captain George
Vancouver, discoverer in 1792 of
Burrard Inlet, upon which the city
named after him is situated.
Before the visitor enters Burrard Inlet, which its discoverer
named after his friend, Sir Harry
Burrard, he will observe upon his
left hand the many beautiful summer homes of West Vancouver
climbing up from the water's edge
in an attractive forest-mountain
setting, and, as he enters the Inlet, he will see in the distance,
upon his left hand, the mountain
city of North Vancouver.
The Spanish were on the coast
a little before Captain Vancouver's
arrival, but they did not discover
Burrard Inlet and the site of Vancouver. A number of streets in
Vancouver bear Spanish names,
Cardero, Haro, Cordova, as do
many islands along the picturesque
B. C. coast and places on Vancouver Island.

Looking west along Georgia Street, Vancouver, at the point where this distinguished shopping street intersects Granville Street. At right is the Hudson Bay
Company store. In background, at left.
Hotel Vancouver.
its numerous shipping lines connecting it with all the ports of the
world, its many miles of admirably lighted streets and avenues
and its innumerable very beautiful gardens and artistic residential
areas, Vancouver people have
much in their city to be proud of.
From it there radiates into the
hinterland a number of important
thoroughfares connecting the city
with the interior and the United
States.
One of these roads runs through
the beautiful and fertile Fraser
Valley for 70 miles, and then on
through 400 miles of mountain and
canyon, where it is known as the
Cariboo Road. That road follows
the line taken by the original Cariboo Road, which was built under
very strenuous conditions in the
early 60's of last century. It leads
to Barkerville, the culminating
point of the famous Cariboo Gold
Rush, The Cariboo Road is rich in
memories  of  those  colorful  days.
The Pacific Highway passes
through New Westminster (the
"Royal City") which lies 14 miles
from Vancouver and is older than
that city. New Westminster was
founded by two companies of the
Royal Engineers, sent out by Lord
Lytton (Bulwer Lytton, the novelist), then Colonial Secretary.
This prosperous and beautiful little city was named by Queen Victoria and one of the most prized
of its possessions is the autograph
letter written by Her Majesty
when telling of her choice of a
name.
Wireless Service
Passengers are invited to avail
themselves of the convenience
afforded by the Wireless equipment on this vessel for the dispatch of business and social
communications tb any part of
the World. Full information may
be obtained at the Purser's Office.
World Famous Park
You will notice on your right as
you enter Vancouver's harbor a
thickly-wooded promontory. Some
50 years ago, in the early years of
settlement when the city was still
to be conceived, through the foresight of the early settlers, this
section of land was set aside as a
national reserve, and was given
the name it now bears and which
has become world famous, that of
Stanley Park.
At any time of the day this
park, 1000 acres of beautiful primitive forest, with lovely lakes,
multi-colored and variegated foliage and giant trees, is entrancing;
as the sun is setting, coloring in
rosy red the snow-capped peaks to
the north, tingeing the waters of
the sea a deeper blue and casting
fanciful shadows over water, leaf
and fern, it presents a picture that
will ever be remembered. "There
are parks and parks, but there is
no park that will exhaust your
stock of adjectives and subdue into
silence like Stanley Park," was
the opinion expressed by Elbert
Hubbard after seeing this forest
playground.

Linen
There is perhaps in the world
today no older fabric than linen.
In the Book of Genesis we find that
Pharaoh clothed the body of Joseph in "vestures of fine linen,"
while in Exodus we read that "the
flax and barley were smitten." It
is interesting to note with what
honor and respect linen was held
in those early days of the world's
history and this is exemplified in
the entombing of Christ, where
only the finest and best procurable
was ultilized. What a contrast to
the way in which linen is referred
to in these days. Almost anything
is referred to as "linen," whereas
there is only one linen—and that
made from pure flax.
Irish linen is the best in the
world. The reason for this is that
it was discovered centuries ago
that the climate and other natural
conditions in the Emerald Isle are
more suitable than those of any
other country for the growth of
flax and the manufacture of linen.
A field of flax is as pretty a
sight as can be imagined. The blue
blossom is tempered to a nice degree by the green stem, and there
is something indescribably dignified about a field of flax. Flax
growers tell us that they dare not
plant two successive crops of flax
in the same field because the flax
roots delve very deeply into the
soil and extract a great deal of
nutriment therefrom. Moreover,
flax is pulled—not cut—and it has
to be pulled bodily up by hand out
of the ground; the reason for this
being that the fibre extends the
full length of the stem and cutting
would reduce its spinning qualities.
This is the beginning of the great
care which is evidenced in all linen
processes to insure perfection and
quality in the finished product.
From the hands of the farmer
the flax comes into the possession
of the spinner, who subjects it to
careful hand processes of hackling
and combing and cleaning and
dressing in preparation for the
spinning machines. These intricate
pieces of machinery subject the
raw flax to a wonderful change, for
they transform the fibre first into
a fine, firm yarn, which strengthened and hardened by the natural
gum of the flax plant, is ready for
the weaver.
When it leaves the looms, the
cloth has a brown, coarse, rough
appearance and the creating of a
beautiful air of pure unblemished
white, without injury to the natural strength of the fabric, is the
pride of the Irish bleacher, and in
his task he is without a peer. The
cloth is then treated and retreated
with repeated boiling and spread-
ings on the grass, until a snowy,
flawless white is attained. But the
bleacher's work is not done until
he has "finished" the cloth. This
in itself is a laborious task, including as it does, the starching
and beeling of the cloth. Scrupulous and exact examination of the
cloth follows and seldom does imperfect cloth reach the consumer.
As at the beginning and at the
end, so all the way along, there is
care and still more care, to insure
that a reputation for quality and
excellence so well earned and
highly esteemed is worthily maintained and upheld.

Growing City
A late comer to the growing list
of great American cities, Seattle
had its beginning on the afternoon
of September 25, 1852. A little
group of pioneers spent their first
night on the shores of Skwudux
(The Indian name for the promontory now known as West Seattle. A historical monument at
Alki Point marks the spot where
early settlers landed. Later, as the
need for a better harbor became
apparent, the settlers staked
claims on the present site of Seattle. The name was given in honor
of a friendly Indian chief, who
helped defend the little community
against attacks of other tribes.
Prom here on, the story is the
usual pioneer recital of conquering
the wilderness. First came the development of early industries, the
coming of the lumbermen, which
culminated in the Indian War of
1856. In 1860, the population was
about 300, and in 1870 it had
grown to 1000; then in the early
eighties, to 4000.
The coming of the railroad gave
new impetus to the growth of Seattle. The Northern Pacific was
the first transcontinental railroad
to reach Seattle. This was in 1884.
The Great Northern completed its
tracks in 1893, and the Chicago,

Seattle has many beautiful boulevards, but the most famous is the Washington  "Riviera
Drive," shown above. Fifty-two miles in length, the boulevard is one of the beauty spots
of the Northwest
 J
'Riviera Drive' in Seattle
Famous Beauty Spot
Visitors in Seattle will, of course,
want to see the city's famous boulevards, of which there are many.
But the most famous of these
scenic drives is the Lake Washington "Riviera Drive." This boulevard, 52 miles in length, is one
of the beauty spots of the Northwest.
The lake itself is 26 miles long
and is enhanced by the overwhelming immensity of the Cascade
mountains looming in the background to the east. Then, too, the
Washington State Game Commission, the citizens of Japan and
the residents of Seattle have combined their efforts to make the
boulevard not only beautiful but
interesting.
The Washington State Game
Commission perhaps has done the
most toward adding to the interest
of the drive. At one large cleared
space on the lake borders these
astute gentlemen have started a
feeding ground for wild ducks. And
how the ducks appreciate the service! They come in large numbers
and stay all year long. They are as
tame as barnyard fowl and like
nothing better than to be fed by
admiring visitors. Even the young
ducklings, usually the shyest of
birds, will eat "right out of your
hand." Another feature the Game
Commission has added are the
hatching pools in Seward Park for
the   steelhead   salmon   and   trout.
Seattle residents living on the
lakeshore have so landscaped their
gardens and yards as to give the
entire area the appearance of a
giant evergreen park.
Seattle is proud of its industries,
its homes, and its scenic advantages, and sincerely invites the
tourist public to share in these
advantages during the year.
Seattle Art Museum Has
Fine Oriental Exhibit
Situated in beautiful Volunteer
Park in Seattle is one of the outstanding Art museums in the
world. It is the Seattle Art Museum and its beauties within are
only rivalled by the 26 majestic
peaks which are visible from its
porch. From the front of the museum one gets a fine view of the
harbor, as well as the lofty Cascades to the east and the Olympics
to the west.
Particularly outstanding among
the exhibits is the Oriental collection, which in the fields of Chinese
and Japanese art is of world importance. It is not only the field
of Oriental art that the museum

Alaska Gold Rush
The steamer City of Topeka, on
February 9, 1897, brought word
of the discovery of gold in large
quantity in the Klondike. On July
17, 1897, the steamer Portland arrived with over $1,000,000 in gold
dust, which event earned for the
vessel the name, "Ton of Gold
Ship." News of the gold strike
spread rapidly and soon thousands
of people were pouring through
Seattle on their way to the gold
fields in the North. The city flourished and by 1900 its population
reached 80,671.
The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, which was held in Seattle in
1909, brought 3,750,000 visitors
to the city, and was instrumental
in another advance in the city's
progress. The opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 hastened its
development as a major seaport
and as an industrial city. The opening of the Lake Washington Canal
in 1916, the recent building of the
Lake Washington Floating Bridge,
and the rehabilitation of Seattle's
transportation system have highlighted the improvements of Seattle over a period of years.

ACCOMMODATIONS . . . Seattle has
the best hotel facilities of any city in
the country of any comparable size and
better than many cities considerably
larger. There are more than 300 hotels
in the city, placing Seattle fifth in the
United States and sixth in the number
of roms. For those arriving by boat
from Victoria, the Commodore Hotel is
close to the piers. It is a small hotel
but smart and comfortable. Rates $2.00
to $5.00. Directly opposite the Bon Mar-
che on Fourth Avenue is The Ritz,
small but excellent. Close to everything
is The Atwood. It is popular with Alaskans. The Claremont is highly recommended and popular with Canadians.
And, if you are driving, the finest
motel in the city is the Max-Ivor on U.
S. 99.
RESTAURANTS . . . Seattle, famed
seaport city, is truly a gourmet's delight. Foods of all nations are available
in representative restaurants as well as
well-known seafoods for which the city
is famous.
Be it French, Greek, Italian, Chinese,
Russian, Japanese, Scandinavian, or
typical American food, the visitor will
find whatever is to his taste. Dining
out in Seattle can be truly an adventure, whether the visitor wanders along
the waterfront, the Oriental section of
the city, or dines at the many restaurants that are scenically located to take

If you really want a place which
you'll remember, then go to the new

with a nice atmosphere and from its
windows and verandah you look out
across Elliott Bay. You needn't be shy
about going because you think such a
restaurant is expensive; it isn't. The
Golden Goose Cafe at the base of the

also.
Downtown, close to the Bon Marche
on 4th avenue, is The Broiler. Elvis T.
England is your host. He's been there
many years. Try his "Barbecued Crab."
Near the Bon Marche also is Ben Paris.
In addition to fine food service, this
unusual restaurant maintains a sportsmen's information service and features
exhibits of fresh-caught King salmon,
trout and other fish in season. Known
as  Sportsmen's   "Head  Camp."
For atmosphere, fine food and recreation, it's the Totem Cafe L«oimge. This
restaurant is not surpassed by any
similar restaurant in Seattle. It is one
of Clark's fine chain of restaurants.
Cocktail lounge adjoins the restaurant.
And especially recommended to Canadians is Mannings. With limited U.
S. funds, many Canadians want to save
their money to spend on merchandise
and want to avoid getting into an expensive restaurant. Manning's is the
place for these. Superb food. No tins.

SHOPPING ... At 4th Avenue and
Pike Street in Seattle, as at 42nd Street
and 5th Avenue in New York, is the
city's business intersection. Many of
Seattle's finest shopping streets are
within a few blocks of 4th and Pike.
Yet each street—2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th,
Pike, Pine, Stewart, Olive Way, Union,
University, Seneca—has a distinctive
character of its own. On 4th Avenue—
wide, imposing, clean, flanked by some
of the city's finest office buildings—
and 5th Avenue, quiet dignified, luxurious—are shops which are not surpassed by any other of their kind in
the world—on either New York's 5th
Avenue, London's Regent Street—or, in
the matter of artistic treasures appealing to the tourist and visitor, by any
similar shops in other lands. Especially
is this true of the shops in the vicinity
of the Olympic Hotel on 4th and 5th
Avenues.   In  the   Olympic  Hotel   itself
on 4th  Avenue  is  Dorothy's  charming
gift and  card  shop.
You should be sure to visit Ye Olde
Curiosity Shop in the Colman Ferry
Terminal. This is the place for a souvenir. And up on the Marion Street
viaduct close by is Berry's Arts and
Crafts, a charming shop displaying unusual art objects. Featured are beautiful and practical gifts made from
Alaskan fossil ivory, the ivory being
obtained from the tusks of pre-glacial
mammoth and walrus. Two rare and
beautiful woods grown in the Northwest and which are noted for the ex-

and rich delicate colorings, are Myrtle-

Unique Market Place
May Be Seen in Seattle
According to the fiery little Cor-
sican, Napoleon, an army travels
on its stomach. The same could be
said of a city. A city without a
steady, reliable supply of foodstuffs cannot continue to exist. In
this respect, Seattle is ideally situated, and Seattle Public Market
has a reputation for being the
most interesting of any American
marketplace. Here truck-farmers
bring their produce and sell it
directly to the consumer. The market place on Saturday night is
every bit as interesting as any
Persian or Arabian auction.
bowls, supper trays, etc., may be purchased in this wood.
For apparel and gifts for both men
and women,  it's Littler's.
And close to Frederick & Nelson is
Bender & Kohlstad, one of the nicest
clothing stores on the coast. They are
headquarters for Dobbs hats.
And if you aren't driving your own
car, you'll need a car to see Seattle
properly, or for that extended trip to
Mt. Rainier or Mt. Baker or around
the Olympic Peninsula. Call Corbett's
or Evans U-Drive. Study their advertisements on this and the preceding
page.

English China
In England, two distinct principal types of ware are manufactured. Bone China and Semi-porcelain or Earthenware. Bone
China, as its name, implies, contains a large percentage of ground
bone ash, which gives it a trans-
lucency and a strength and ring
which is unsurpassed. It contains
also china clay and stone. Bone
china should not be confused with
Continental or Oriental porcelain,
which while translucent and hard,
is also brittle.
Earthenware, on the other hand,
contains flint and stone and two
different clays. It is dense in appearance and not so costly to
manufacture.
One of the finest examples of
this is Wedgwood Queensware,
which has been on the market
since 1763.
Probably few people realize that
it takes several hundred highly
skilled craftsmen and centuries of
experience to create a single plate.
One is often asked who makes
the finest English china. To this
question we can only answer that
none of the seven firms, members
of the Fine China Association—
Cauldron Potteries Ltd., Coalport
China Co. Ltd., W. T. Copeland &
Sons (Spode), Doulton & Co. Ltd.,
Mintons Ltd., Joshia Wedgwood &
Sons Ltd., Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. Ltd.—would claim superiority— equality, yes — and we
would add further that when you
select a pattern from any of
these firms you can buy none better.
Spode Bone China cup and saucer in
the well-known "Dresden Rose"
design.
SPODE—Josiah Spode, the First,
was born in 1733 A. D., and coming from Staffordshire stock of
long lineage he had potting in his
blood. As a pupil of Thomas Whiel-
don, he learned the Potter's Craft
side by side with Wedgwood. Some
of Spode's work was done during
the reign of George II, but most
of it during that of George III. He
was a contemporary of Dr. Johnson, Goldsmith, Fox, Sheridan and
others and also a Freeman of the
City of London.
In 1754 A. D., his son was born.
Together they saw the outbreak
of the French Revolution in all
its fury, and the establishment of
the United States of America.
In 1770 A. D., Josiah Spode took
over the present pottery plant at
Stoke. He was a Quaker and a
man of great ability and charm.
Fourteen years after commencing work on his own behalf, he
introduced his hand-printed under-
glaze blue ware. Technically perfect, it was soon being sold to the
markets of the world. Less than

A Beauty Comes to Gaff
MM^r^ .SMM
Here's a scene, enacted thousands of times
every summer, near Brentwood Bay, on Vancouver Island, as a lucky fisherman brings a
big 3 0-pound spring salmon to gaff after a
stirring battle. British Columbia's coastal
waters teem with these famous game fish
which, as tyees, sometimes attain a weight of
80 pounds.

Ancient Art

there has within recent years sprouted up
in her soil that most ancient, and beautiful, but useful of arts, hand-weaving,
which is now flourishing like the proverbial bay-tree, and developing into^i^thriv—
ing industry.
Experts say that climate has much to
do with it, and that Victoria offers the
perfect climate for manufacturing woollens. Be this as it may, it is certain that
the soil has proved very fertile and the
seed of this particular bay-tree has blown
all over Canada, and even flowered as
far afield as the most exclusive sartorial
houses of New York and Chicago.
A colony of Scotch weavers came to
Victoria with their own yarns and looms
and applied themselves to the task of
adapting the inimitable Sotch yarns to
the weight demanded by the warmer
Western climate, the central-heated houses
of the New World, and to the demand for
less gloomy colors than satisfy the conservative and somewhat dour Scot.
This is the only place in the New
World, 816 Esquimalt Road, where genuine Scotch tweeds are woven, and in the
most astonishing variety of yarns, Cheviot, Saxony, Harris, Camel-hair, Angora,
Cashmere, to mention a few, and all in
the very latest and most fashionable
colors.

Famed Koksilah
• (Continued from Page Four)
is   the  hand-made  Indian  sweater,  only
associated with  the Cowichan district.
It is so truly said that these sweaters
are "from sheep to sweater." For here
the Indians take the raw sheep's wool,
wash, hand-mix it, card, spin or roll the
wool and from it make the most comfortable and serviceable garment for
either fishings ridingi_5ki-ingr climbing,
hiking, golfing, or flying  (aviation).
Have you cold feet? Well, here there is
every kind of sock or stocking for you
to choose from. Hands, too, are thought
of, for there is every kind of mitten
and glove that is made of raw wool.
All these can be worn when raining
and yet one is dry and warm, as the
natural oil is still in the wool and makes
these goods more or less shed the water.
Whole sets are made to order. Sweater,
toque or tarn, scarf, mitts or gloves,
socks, for either children or adults.
The designs, too, are wonderful and
unique, being half woven and half knitted in. Any of this Indian work bearing
the name H. Corfield, The Canoe, Koksilah, is supervised in every way and so
can be relied on as to shape, cleanliness,
and genuineness (as every good thing has
its imitations and this particularly is
guarded against). At Corfield's, too, one
can be advised as to what weight or mixture to purchase for the different purposes for which the sweater is going to
be used.
For those not wishing to come so far
up the Island the C.P.R.. Princess steamers carry a full stock of these unique and
wonderfully comfortable garments, so
the opportunity should not be missed to
purchase one whilst aboard, if possible,

white man ever to sail up the West Coast
of Vancouver Island. He was a Spaniard,
an intrepid and courtly gentleman-adventurer who gloried in risking his life in
the service of his King.
The year was 1774 — the year when
King George Ill's American colonists rebelled against oppressive tax measures and
launched their battle for freedom.
But it was a vastly different Vancouver
Island to which Perez came. True, it
was then clothed with magnificent evergreens; its sand beaches glistened whitely
in the sunshine; the huge Pacific combers
thundered against its cliffs; and the
fjords, ribbons of silver, stretched away
inland through the mountain bastions.
But there were no towns or cable stations
or canneries at the heads of the fjords.
Instead, there were Indian villages where
Nootka and Kwakiutl tribes lived in
primitive austerity.
Perez, battling huge Pacific combers in
a small corvette, the Santiago, sailed as
far north as the Queen Charlottes and
then, without landing anywhere, turned
back to Gil Bias in Mexico. In those days,
mariners were searching for a Northwest
Passage around North America to Europe
which explains, possibly, Perez's failure to
land and annex the coast for Spain..
Next year — in 1775 — another, and
more far-seeing Spaniard, sailed northward from Mexico, following Perez's
wake. He was Don Bodega y Quadra,
more diplomat than adventurer, and his
coming to the Pacific Coast was a forerunner of the first clash between Britain
and Spain for possession of this northwestern empire.

Salish Indian Describes
Beautiful Peninsula
• "Fair-land."
That is the meaning of Saanich (pronounced San-nitch), a Salish Indian word
which was adopted as the name of the
peninsula at the southern end of Vancouver Island. The peninsula was one of
the earliest districts ever settled on the
Pacific Coast by white Europeans and today it is one of the fairest country-sides
in British Columbia. Originally, Saanich
was the home of mixed farming. But, in
recent years, it has won fame for its production of small fruits, strawberries,
loganberries and cherries, for its commercial flower and bulb culture, poultry
raising, fox farming and commercial seed
culture.
Soft Wood Centre
• Forests on Vancouver Island hold the
greatest large remaining stand of soft
wood in the British Empire. Mineral deposits are extensive and coal mines have
been worked since the earliest fur-trading

it boasts the most equable climate in
Canada, a mean winter temperature of 42

Rex Beach Inspired
By Famed Railway
• Most readers of current fiction are

Beach's novel of the North. Princess
tourists will probably be interested to
know that the White Pass and Yukon
Railway is the original of Mr. Beach's
Copper River Railroad and the "O'Neill"
of the story was patterned upon M. J.
Heney, a great friend of Bishop Rowe to
whom he left $10,000 in his will for that
prelate's work among Indians of the
north. Mr. Heney's first undertaking was
construction of this White Pass Railroad.

Island Highway Offers
Motorists' Paradise
• Vancouver Island offers tourists one of
the finest scenic highways in the world
—the Malahat—a road which soars high
over mountain peaks along the east coast,
with incomparable vistas of the Gulf of
Georgia lying at their feet through a
fringe of evergreens.
Leaving Victoria over this highway,
visitors may see the famous reversible
falls at the Gorge where, when the tide
comes in, the river flows in the opposite
direction—away from the sea. Then, in
rapid succession, comes the historic old
Hudson's Bay buildings, Colwood race
track and the Royal Colwood golf course.
Then, up along the tree and fern-bordered
road, the visitor soars up and up and up,
until he sits on the roof of the world at
the Malahat Lookout. Saanich peninsula,
green and geometrical, lies at his feet and
beyond the horizon shimmers far out to
sea over the Gulf of Georgia. And, if
the visitor is particularly favored of the
gods, he may catch an enchanting glimmer of Mount Baker's snowy peaks to the
eastward, 120 miles distant.
Northward still, the highway runs
through farm lands, evergreen forests,
and open meadowlands where oak trees
stand majestically solitary until the visitor comes to Duncan. A picturesque
Indian reserve stands at the southern
edge of the village. Northward again
lies Nanaimo, second largest city on the
Island, a centre of the coal mining industry and a shopping centre.
• One thousand miles of good auto roads
radiate over Vancouver Island from
Victoria.

Beauty and Utility Mark
A Beauty Comes to Gaff
Here's a scene, enacted thousands of times
every summer, near Brentwood Bay, on Vancouver Island, as a lucky fisherman brings a
big 30-pound spring salmon to gaff after a
stirring battle. British Columbia's coastal
waters teem with these famous game fish
which, as tyees, sometimes attain a weight of
80 pounds.

B. Cs Capital City
• "To realize Victoria you must take all
the eye admires most in Bournemouth,
Torquay, the Isle of Wight, Happy Valley
at Hong Kong, the Doon, Sorrento, and
Camps Bay; add reminiscences of the
Thousand Islands and arrange the whole
around the Bay of Naples, with some
Himalayas for the background . . ."
So Rudyard Kipling wrote home when
he sailed, for the first time, into Victoria's Inner Harbor.
"Victoria is as British as Basingstoke
and as beautiful, in scenery, luxuriant
growth of flowers and peaceful quiet as
any place on earth. Come to Victoria
and you will see how Britishers live and
do business. There, men on $4,000 a year
look prosperous and contented instead of
dyspeptic and worried looking on $100,-
000 a year as we do in the States."
And that was how Arthur Brisbane
interpreted Victoria to his millions of U.
S. readers.
And both—one who sees the city for
the first time with a summer sun gilding
its beauties might think—were guilty of
under, not over-statement.

Seattle Art Museum Has
Fine Orient Exhibit
• Situated in beautiful Volunteer Park
in Seattle is one of the oustanding Art
museums in the world. It is the Seattle
Art Museum and its beauties within are
only rivalled by the 26 majestic mountain peaks which are visible from its

one gets a fine view of the harbor, as well
as the lofty Cascades to the east and the
Olympics to the west.
Particularly oustanding among the exhibits is the Oriental collection, which
in the fields of Chinese and Japanese art
is of world importance. It is not only
the field of Oriental art that the museum
covers, however, for one entire wing
houses western art, both contemporary
and early.
The museum has had a large attendance since its opening in 1933, with more
than 250,000 visitors entering the doors
during the year.
The Museum has taken a leading part
in the cultural life of this region as well
as the city. One example of this is the
21st Annual Exhibition of Northwest
Artists, held recently at the Museum, including work by artists from all parts of

Blanc, a distinguished French citizen of
the Pacific Coast, who has been twice
decorated by the French Government for
his contributions to his art as a maitre
de cuisine and his leadership of Seattle's
Cercle Francais. That M. Blanc is an
artist outside of the kitchen as well as
inside is evidenced by the remarkable collection of fine oils and etchings which
he has gathered over a period of a quarter
of a century and which are displayed for
the delight of visitors to his establishment, housed in a quaint, old pioneer
Seattle home.
In addition to this quite extensive picture gallery, the visitor here will be intrigued by a display of objets d'art of the
most amazing variety. While Maison

genial chef-proprietor believes that the
"bill of fare" is more important than the

Unique Market Place
To Be Seen In Seattle
• According to the fiery little Corsican,
Napoleon, an army travels on its stomach. The same could be said of a city.
A city without a steady, reliable supply
of foodstuffs cannot continue to exist.
In this respect, Seattle is ideally situated.
Seattle has one of the finest public
market systems of any city in the world,
and Seattle Public Market has a reputation for being the most interesting of
any American marketplace. Here the
Japanese and Italian truck-farmers bring
their produce and sell it directly to the
consumer. The market-place on Saturday night is every bit as interesting as
any Persian or Arabian auction. The
"hawkers" sell off the left-over goods to
the highest bidder, many times for less
than the cost of transporting it to
market.
Mid-Summer Flower
Show For Seattle
• Just to demonstrate Seattle's all-year

In all other sections of the country
flower shows are held in either the spring
of the year or in the early fall, but in
Seattle, flowers bloom all year long and
it is possible to hold the show.
Seattle Garden Club members boast
the highest percentage of membership
according to population of any city in
the country, and their flowers embrace
virtually every type and variety. Among
the most famous of their blooms are
chrysanthemums, rhododendrons, lilies
and dahlias.

• Famous for a generation.
Restaurants in Canada's third largest
city serve meals which for inexpensive-
ness and good quality are unsurpassed by
any other city on the American continent, a recent international survey
revealed.
With the famed fruit and vegetable
farming valleys of the Fraser and Okanagan lying close behind Vancouver in interior British Columbia, and low transportation costs, Vancouver is able to enjoy
an abundance of food the year round.
The city, as a result, has many fine
restaurants, particularly along its main
thoroughfare, Granville Street. Purdy's
Cafe, a name famous for a generation in
the city, is among the foremost on this
street.
• Hollywood Comes to Canada.
Not a few of us are familiar with those
delightful restaurants with their smart
and inviting fronts along Hollywood
Boulevard and Vine Street in the Movie
City where one sees and meets everyone.
In Vancouver it's the Hollywood Cafe—
well named—where food of real excellence is served. Excellent too is the
service.    It's the smart place to go.
• All European Languages.
At the Lucerne Cafe is to be found the
very latest in first class catering at popular prices with an excellent dance orchestra. All styles of European cooking
are undertaken, while a unique feature is
that all European languages are spoken.
Surroundings are delightful, with every
courtesy shown patrons.
Mighty Destiny Is Seen
For City of Vancouver
• Vancouver!
It has earned many pseudonyms in its
half century of existence — Terminal
City; Western Gateway of Canada; the
metropolis of British Columbia; the Halfway House of Empire; etc., etc., and etc.
For, celebrating only its fiftieth anniversary this summer, Vancouver already
holds ranks as the third largest city in
Canada. Its total population is 310,000
and no other city in Canada—possibly
on the earth—is more cosmopolitan. For
all races and colors and creeds of men
have foregathered here.
Vancouver possesses one of the finest
natural harbors in the world; a harbor
completely land-locked, brooded over by
majestic mountain peaks on the North
Shore and spacious enough to accommodate all the navies of the world. Her
harbor has brought her greatness. Ocean
tonnage has doubled in ten years and
Vancouver today is one of the greatest
grain-shipping ports on the Seven Seas.

In this fine air view of the Inner Harbour at Victoria may be seen six Princess steamers berthed
at their piers, while at the lower left appears the Parliament Buildings of Canada's Westernmost
Province.    In the lower right is the Empress Hotel, social  centre of this playground  of  the
Pacific, and the Crystal Pool.

ships on the Pacific Ocean — the great
white Empresses which bring to Canada's
western portal the varied and romantic
products of Oriental craftsmanship. Silk
cargoes, the essence of whose movement is
speed, for silk prices vary on the markets
of the world from day to day, are brought
through Vancouver for the United States'
market, because the white Empresses exceed all other ships in the speed at which
they link Asia to the Americas and countless other lines, flying the flags of all the
world's great maritime nations, have
made the city a regular port of call.
There is one other ultra-modern activity in which Vancouver has also won
rank in North America second to none—
its attraction for tourists. Annually, by
C.P.R. overland route, aboard deep-sea
and coastal lines, by bus and automobile
from south and east, it is estimated that
over 1,000,000 tourists arrive in Vancouver for their summer holidays. And Vancouver, most northerly of the great cities
in the vast evergreen playground of the
Pacific Northwest, offers incomparable
rewards to the lovers of natural beauty.
Sea-trips, mountain climbing, golf, fishing, ski-ing even as late as June, a multitude of bathing beaches, beautiful parks
and unrivalled scenic highways leading
away into the interior of the province are
a few of the widely-diversified attractions the city holds out to its visitors.
Envoy of Monarch
Given Totem Pole
• Friendly Cove, on Barclay Sound, most
historic spot on the West Coast in relation to the original explorers, has added
another incident in recent years to its
cherished memories.
It is the visit which was paid by Viscount Willingdon on his last tour of the
Pacific Coast before leaving for India.
He was the only viceroy who ever visited
the West Coast.
On this occasion, the viceroy was received at Friendly Cove by Chief Napoleon, of the Nootka tribe, a direct descendant of the famous chief Maquinna.
In the shadow of a huge 40-foot totem
pole, Chief Napoleon delivered an address of welcome in Indian. When the
Chief's sonorous speech had been finished,
an interpreter turned gravely to the viceroy and informed him Chief Napoleon
had presented the huge pole in whose
shadow they were standing.
It was a regal gift; much as though
a white man, on receiving a visit from
the viceroy, had presented him his home
and the greater part of his fortune.
The viceroy, touched, accepted the
pole. Subsequently, it was removed from
Friendly Cove and now stands in the
grounds of Rideau Hall, home of the
viceroys in Ottawa.
