Victoria Daily British Colonist (Newspaper) - January 15, 1881, Victoria, British Columbia So Tilg Boioni i. Saturday morning jan. 15tu, Issi. L. P. Fisher advertising agent 21 merchants Exchange son i ran Ilsoo is authorised to rec Leo advertisements lot Tho columns of this paper. Efobi no ebb la no town of its size ill the world Are there Moro Pitfalls set to entrap Young men than in Victoria. Barroom a at least one and nearly always two on each Corner. Open gambling in a too ii and rooms Tho doors of which stand invitingly open. Dance houses and houses of ill Famo too numerous to mention Indian Wanton Whoso every breath is Ladon with blood Poison plying their Trublic on the Public streets and country roads. As the spider weaves its web to catch Tho unwary Fly so does vice spread its web to ensnare the promising Young Man who confident of his strength of mind ventures for Tho first time into an abode of sin. Tho end is a common one. Few possess the moral courage to resist the temptation. They see others a a enjoying a themselves and imagine it to to Tho a a Correct thing a to follow their example. The result in 99 cases out of 100 is disease disgrace misery and death. Few parents appear to trouble their to acts As Toto places their sons visit after Nightfall. There Are a few barroom in town whore Tho Coin tendered by a youth for a dram is not refused and where Tho same youth is invited to stake Money on the turn of a card a there Are not Many houses of this character in town there Are licensed Victualler who would Retiro from the business rather than sell a Glass of liquor or permit a Dollar to to staked in their houses. But Thoro Are some who not Alono allow but encourage and Lead step by Stop on Tho downward path the misguided youths who occupy perhaps confidential and respectable positions in City establishments. Such men never inquire where Tho Money is obtained that they Rake in Over their bars and tables. But they Aro morally and should to held legally responsible for the ruin and disgrace of the Young Mon to Whoso evil passions they pander. How can the keeper of a Saloon who sets a Young Man spending or losing in a week a larger sum than his salary amounts to in a month shut Bis eyes to Tho palpable fact that Tho Money so freely dispensed must have been wrongfully obtained ? it becomes his duty under such circumstances to caution and advise the Young Man. Several holders of licenses in to City Are known to have remonstrated with a a fast youths and Mally to have declined their custom altogether. a honorable exceptions to the class to which we now allude. There is a Law on Tho statute Book which provides a severe penalty for the proprietor of a licensed House who supplies a boy under a prescribed ago with liquor or permits him to enter and loiter about. The premises. Is that Law Ever enforced ? is a watch kept upon the class of houses to have marked out to see if the Law is respected a a we fear not. It is All Well enough i to appoint policemen for Tho detection of criminals but has not the Force a higher and nobler duty to perform a an ounce of prevention is Worth a Pound of should not a police Force be. Preventive As Well As detective in its operation ? of rat not its members to admonish the youths whom they meet on the streets at unseemly hours and caution them against the society of men and women of evil reputations and if finding remonstrance and advice lost upon them to report their conduct to those who have a right to know where and in whose company they pass their nights we think the answer will be in the affirmative from readers of this article for we Aro not addressing ois hardened sinners nor men who have withstood the Racket of Many years and come out scat Eless. It is to the men of Tho future Tho governors the judges the politicians the professionals the merchants Tho mechanics who Are to be that we now talk to. The old men Aro dropping off almost daily. Residents who landed hero when very Young men Are now nearing the a a Sere and yellow loaf a period. Tho places they now occupy must soon to vacant and Tho youth of the present will become the father in Tho very near future. Shall the reins of government and business be grasped by hands that have been unnerved by Early dissipation or by persons without a shred of character to recommend them to Public Confidence there ought to be a United and determined Effort put Forth to save Tho Young men of this place. There is plenty of scope for the missionary. Tho Laws Are excellent although Many of them have fallen into disuse. The Homo Circle should be rendered attractive to the Young people of to family and their friends. Employers should exorcise a supervision Over their Youthful assistants. School teachers should impart moral As Well As intellectual instruction and clergymen should be Foremost in Tho great work of Batching the youth of the Day from the Brink of destruction and fearless in pointing out and denouncing the snares that beset their paths.

To was a lad of nine when the Century opened. To was for Many years a fellow worker with o Connell in the cause of Catholic emancipation and an ally of Tho lib orator for half a generation afterwards. His memory carries him Over a space of Moro than eighty years. Tho luckless shareholders of Tho late City of Glasgow Bank will learn with interest that one of their sex directors has just bought a charming place in Switzerland and is about to take up his Abodo there with his family. This individual has found himself in a comfortable position on his Roloso from his too Short incarceration in Perth prison thanks to a stringent marriage settlement. One of Tho old generation has passed away in Ludy Elizabeth Bulteel aged eight three.

The Bridge in question which is of Iron and built from the designs of the late sir Thomas Bouclis the designer of Tho late tay Bridge spans Tho South esk. Eight of its piers have to be taken Down and strengthened. A too costly welding gown. Hot it spoiled Tho matrimonial plans of a no w Hampshire widower. A few weeks ago a now Hampshire Man who had been a widower four or five years concluded he would take another helpmate and instead of making his selection from the Marriageable girls of his own neighbourhood he gave out that lie was going Down to Boston to get him a wife. To left Homo for that purpose amid the jeers of his own neighbors who predicted All sorts of misfortunes that would befall him. Arriving in this City to made Liis Way to a Well known intelligence office and imparted the object of his Mission to the Matron in attendance. After considerable questioning to satisfy herself of Tho honesty of the Farmers intentions she went into Tho room we co there were a dozen or More Young woman waiting for situations.

The Farmer took into his Confidence one of the Saleswoman who joyfully entered into the matter. After assisting them in. The selection of the various necessary articles of a minor nature they went up to the dress do Par Mont to buy the wedding gown. The variety shown the Young girl quite bewildered her but she finally set her heart on a dress that exactly suited her. Unfortunately Tho Price was $15 Moro than the Man was willing to pay.
