VICTORIA, PAST AND  PRESENT.
HE   foundations of   the  present
City of  Victoria   were laid in
1843.    It was June of that year
when the "Beaver" landed a
small  force   and   the   Hudson's
Bay Company fort was
Early      erected.   In   1846, Col.
History.    Holloway reported   the
following :    '' Fort Victoria   is    situated    at   the    south-
Pioneer of the   ern er>d of Vancouver Island.    The fort is a square
Pacific Coast,     enclosure   of  one  hundred yards,   surrounded by
cedar  pickets   twenty  feet in height, having two
octagonal bastions, each containing six six-pounder iron guns,
at the north-east and south-west angles.   This is the best built of
the company's forts."    From another source it
Old Hudson's is learned :   "The building is even now (1846)

mass and extent, while the bastions or towers
diminish the tameness which its regular outline would otherwise
produce.    The  interior is occupied by the officers' houses, or
apartments they should rather be called, stores and a trading

30,000  has  been   estimated   as  the   number
camping at one time at Victoria en route to the Fraser River.
From the foregoing it will be seen
that the importance of Victoria as a
commercial centre was recognized
from the first.
Incorporation was effected in 1862,
the city being divided into three
wards.      The   population   was   then
about     5,000.     To-day
A Citv of    ^e residents are more
Wealth       than    five    times    that
number and it is safe to
assert that considered per capita Victoria is the wealthiest city on the
Pacific Coast.
From mercantile and trade reports
it will be seen that nowhere is business conducted on a more
sound and profitable
basis. The volume, too,
ranks high. For comparison it may be stated that the
shipping of Victoria is the fourth
largest in the Dominion of Canada.

The  question will arise :   '' What
can 25,000 people do with so much
merchandise  in  addition  to what  is produced  on   Vancouver
Island?"    The answer is easy, " They consume what they need
and distribute the remainder."    As Victoria

Several Scenes of
Victoria Harbour.
A Terminal
Point.
Although transcontinental railway cars do not
enter the
city, Victoria is under no disadvantage, for first-class
steamers   meet the   trains at
the   Mainland termini    every
day   and   bring   freight  and
passengers from Eastern Canada and United States points,
the rates being the same as if
destined for railway terminals
on the Mainland.*
At the close of the "salmon canning season, fishermen and
others come to Victoria and spend their earnings.
;   It is in the fall of the year that the population
is increased largely, by the return of wage earners   who   have been out in all directions and who
then come home to live in comfort during the winter months.
*The cars of the Canadian Pacific Railway now come to Victoria and arrangements
have been made for ferrying the Great Northern Railway cars also.

The   proportion   of factory
hands and artizans  is unusually  large  for a city of the size of
Victoria.
It is impossible to state whether the fur traders of the early
forties selected Victoria's situation for other than  geographical
reasons,   but it is certain that a more ideal site for a large city
could hardly be found.    Its natural beauty and

and admits perfect drainage and sewerage. Within certain limits
only stone or brick buildings can be erected, and the numerous
recent additions of such structures furnish indications of confidence which the owners have in the future of the city.
In one respect  Victoria differs very  materially  from  most
cities inasmuch as the business blocks and dwelling houses are
