NGLISH critics are not entirely satisfied with the new memorial to Queen Victoria, which stands In front of Buckingham palace and Is the result of nine years' labor. The memorial Is a marble shaft sur mounted by a figure symbolising Victory, while allegorical figures around the base typify Truth, Motherhood, Justice, Peace and other attributes of Queen Victoria and Great Britain as the sculptor, Thomas Brock, sees them. One of the principal features of the memorial Is a statue of Queen Victoria, and It is this statue that has provoked the most severe criticisms. The statue Is shown In the picture above. Members of her family are said to have called It a good likeness of the departed ruler, but this Is disputed by others. Atten tion Is also called to the fact that she is shown holding a scepter unlike any known'In England, and she Is also wearing a small crown while holding the scepter, "something she never did in real life," asserts a writer In the London Sphere. This same writer also declares that the design that purports to be the arms of Scotland Is defective. In summing up the case against the memorial the critic says: "The thing should create a thrill or stir of the heart in the breast ot the.loyal observer, but this Is just what It seems impossible for these wrltfifag mermaids and dull faced mothers to produce. One falls to get the impression of a living pulse beneath the marble." Devils Lakers were formerly member.* of the Grand Forks lodge, No. 255.
