the affairs ofthe Vancouver General
Hospital, which is being undertaken

beginning of a general inquiry Into
tlie entire internal management and
the finances of the hospitals of the
whole provice, looking to a means being found for improving tlie situation
respecting these institutions.
II us hies s Methods
There Isa tremendous amount of
money being expended upon tbo hospitals of the province, and It Is desirable to see that business methods
are adopted the fullest extent in connection  with  the  management.

land points towards the latter part of

the existing Victoria-Seattle air route.
Alex Holden. well known in Victoria will initiate the second service as
Pilot in the big seven-seated Faircbild

interchange of passengers in Victoria,

bya double return trip from Vancouver daily, giving two Isalnd centres
to be linked to two Mainland cities

The importance or protecting young

Prom  these figures  it  will be evident thai, while tuberculosis takes its
causing   a   high    percentage   of   all
deaths from 20 to 40 years of age, it
is not by any means, confined to any
period of life.
A large percentage or all people
take intothelr bodies, some time during llieir lives, the germs or tuberculosis. In most cases, these germs are
held at bay and the disease never actually develops, The germs are there!
however, and are a constant threat.
They are most apt to get their chance I
to causg diseuse if the body is weakened through the attack of some disease,  such   us   Influenza,   or  even   a
c nlotl cnlii nr diseased teeth. Ovor
fatigue, worry and exposure also
lower iln- resistance of the body. If
ndltlonal heavy doses of the germs or
tuberculosis are taken iu, they may
cause actual disease at any age.
Fnr all these reasons, it Is evident
ithal. throughout life, care should he
; taken to keep the body Ot an dto avoid

toria to locate tht.- route ot this r
road.   That clinched puhlic confidence
and gave assurance that things were
in hand in earnest.
The first locomotive for this railway arrived on August 12, 1885. as by
that time sufficient steel had been laid
to make locomotive traction advantageous. The line was completed on
Friday, August 13. 1886, when Sir
John A. Macdonald, Prime Minister
of Canada, drove tlie last spike at
Shawnigan lake and the first through
train was pulled over the line on that
date.
The effect of the construction and
operation or the E. & N, Railway on
the agricultural districts between Victoria and Wellington were neither
imnieiliatenor startling. The linking
up or the two (only) urban communities on the Island was much more
apparent. Gradually, also Duncan, a
sort of halfway house, began to expand by reason of increasing agricultural, horticultural and other enlarge
ment of Ita environs, Unoccupied
lands adjacent to the railway began
to be taken up ana agricultural development made a steady if slow
progress. The subsequent history or
ibis part of the railway rails well
within the memory of the present
generation.
Rail and Water Meet
With tbe land and timber "boom"
which began on tbe Island about lim?
.md lasted for a full half a decade,
there was considerable activity af.
the head of Alberni Canal, an inlet
or th ePaclflc Ocean which cuts Vancouver Island to Its very heart extending Inland for thirty miles, and
a new city—Port Alberni -was
launched on the horizon of advancing
impacts.    So  potential   did  the  pros-
new ctly appear that in mil the B,
&. N. Railway extended its line from
Wellington to that port. The new
extension was dedicated for traffic
in  December of tbat year.
An older agricultural settlement
much fart her north on the eastern
I side of the Island had existed from
rejoicing | time immemorial. That was the pi-
same |„„eer Island district uf Comox, which
had been settled by sturdy Shetland-
era and Scotsmen many years before
and concerning whicb Informative articles already have appeared In The
Colonist. The lands between Parksville and this northern community-
though rich in possibilities—lay fallow for lack of transportation.
In 1913, therefore, (the E. & N.
commenced construction of an additional extension to Courtenay. the
new capital of Comox Valley. Thia
extension was opened for tb rough
traffic ln August. 1EI14, just a few
days after (he declaration or the'
Oreat War. Courtenay now under-'
went marked and rapid expansion.
Agricultural settlement increased.
Land was cleared between Courtenay
and Cumlierland. L'nion Ray grew,
settlement was pushed in every available and promising direction—
transportation had come.
Later the Government settlement
for returned soldiers was founded at
Merville. a plot so named lying eight
miles north of Courtenay, The history
of this settlement, however .does not
make very encouraging reading.
Between Union Hay and Parksvllle
new rural communities were planted
Now tlie older settler who used to
travel past a wilderness or heavy
timbers and sloping terrain on the
steamers which in 1887, furnished the
only means of communication with
ibis northern settlement, go by train
aud are gladdened by the sight of
what transportation can effect in the
fortunes of individuals and the devel-
opmenl ofa country, All this appears
encouraging and doubtless, but for
the blight ofthe war wouhl furnish
siili better evidences of the potential

line, the constant Improvements in
Internal combustion engines, tho constantly Improved adaptation of transport vehicles to the character ol the
traffic for which ihey have to cater,
all these things show thai mankind
is progressive and that the intense
rivalry of competition Imve not teased
to prove factors in business life.
Victoria in common with all other
distributing centres, has got  Iuto it-
stride in the matter of motor transportation and Into Its swing in Uie ad
eqnacy of is equipment.
i    The motor licencing department of
; the   Provincial   Government   divides
, motor transport Into onlytwo classes.
| These  nre  passenger cars  and  commercial transport,   li scarcely is necessary to point out that ihis elasstfl-
, cation is  Inadequate as it does not
distinguish between motor passengers
transport and the use of automobiles
, for   domestic  ami   particular   for   Individual   business   purposes.    Neither
, does   it   distinguish   between   motor
trucks   and   the   more   elite   trieght
transfers adapted to the handling of
the much mere costly lines of commercial  a nicies.    Yet,  including all
these, and because of the network of
excellent, roads which Vancouver Island boasts now. there is not a point
between Victoria and Campbell River
that cannot  be reached conveniently,
rapidly   and   comfortably   by   motor
transport.
Coach lines and private tars begar.
to cut into tlie business of the Victoria
& Sidney Railway early In tho history
of ihis development. So more satisfactory wns the motor service that the
V, £ S.s which bud been built in IS9I,
was compelled ti) suspend operation
.in 1019. Sidney still is served with
I rati connection by a spur line of tlie
Canadian National Railways, bul the
V. & S., one part of an ambitions project, has its rails lorn up. and i
nn historic n-lic only, terminal buildings, devoted to other purposes, alone
remaining.
The British Columbia Electric Railway bulltan expensive interurban line
to Deep Tove ill 1013. It was. for
len years,a great convenience to people of small acreage and Interurban
homes along the line to a gratifying
extent. Vol tba Invasion of privately
owned cars, and later of regularl;
routed coach lines, has compelled th
abandonment   of operations.
Well, old men die to make way for
younger, stronger, swifter and perhaps better men or a new generation
Why should traffic lines or means of
transport be any different?
Asa result of tlie new Invasion the
whole of Saanich Peninsula is served
tony with By8tenia or motor transport
for passengers and freight which
could not have heen conceived a
quarter ofa century ago. Tins,, In Ies
radlale mil of Victoria and some figure* of the wholo motor vehicle
transporl system may mil prove to
be without Interest,
Including tallyho's which confine
Ihemsotvet to the bustnoBs of conveying sight-seeing passengers around
the city .there are forty-nine licenced
motor coaches operating In and out ol
Victoria.    Home of those, ol  <■ uc,
go as far as Campbell Rlvoi The
total number or licenced "passotiger"
car- Is i Mi:. . This number includes
privately owned (-.uH ;,m| motor
coaches operating in and out of Oreat*
er Victoria The total includes n few
licences issued in parties outside the
Greater Victoria Hunts who made application hy mall and bad their licences forwarded, Of commercial
vehicles, which includes trucks ond
freight handlers, delivery vans and
cars, the number Is 2,200, Thus thc
