Provincial Government Policy in Pitt
Meadows District Is Beginning
to Bear Fruit.
PITT MEADOWS, Dec. 31.���That
the problem of raising good crops on
the twenty thousand acres of prairie
land which constitutes Pitt Meadows
may only be solved by an adequate
system of drainage and by the
deepening of the slough channels,
has long been the cry of the farmer here and the difficulty seems in a
fair way to being solved by the actions of the Provincial government
who have already inaugurated a
system of dredging which in time
will afford plenty of depth for the
accumulations of surface water that
in former years has been the bugbear of the rancher.
During the year just closed, several of the larger sloughs have been
deepened and in addition, on the
south side of the C. P. R. tracks,
two or three new channels have been
dug until now that portion of the
meadows is in shape re.ady for the
farmer to run his smaller ditches
into the cuts, for which work plenty
Of fall la assured. On the north
side, over a mile of Katsey slough
has been completed and the work
only ceased some few days ago \tSen
the appropriation ran out. Next
year it is expected that the balance
of this slough, which is Ur-e main
artery of the meadows, will be completed and the resultant improvement to the land will prove of inestimable value to the property owners
along this slough.
For years the land known as Pi
Meadows has been called "sour" and
unfit for grain raising, but agriculturists who have made a study of
conditions, were emphatic In declar'
ing that drainage was the solution
of the problem and that the land
was Al In quality. This fact has
been borne out in recent years by
these progressive farmers who have
grown some of the finest crops ever
seen in the district after their lands,
which adjoined the highland, had
been properly ditched.

When the pile driver commenced
dropping and the thud and crash
of the falliug hammer on July 2
last announced tbat actual construction work had begun on the
New Westminster harbour improvement, it indeed marked an historic
occasion, the actual bringing to
fruition of plans for a great undertaking. The driving of this pile
marked the first work of making
a great world port on the Canadian
i'acific littoral, Other communities
had thought and talked; other communities had planned tig things
but had accomplished little; from
Guuymas in the south to Prinse Rupert in lhe north every port of any
pretensions was talking harbor improve ni, Panama canftl and    the
business that must follow its completion, in this talk and in these
plans i lm Canadian ports were not
oue whit behind the ports to the
southward. Vancouver would spend
millions; Victoria would spend other
millions, and half a hundred million
could  later  be  turned  ovor  to  the
New Westminster refused to wait.
While the machinery was being put
in motion to make this a rational
porl, its people voted to begin -work
at once and provided for bond issue
of $500,000 for beginning the work.
The unit found to be most desirable
and most essential was in the Immediate front of the city. Here
Front street formed what was practically the neck of a bottle, and al!
railways entering the city must pass
through this neck. It was too narrow. It must be widened to permit the entry of the Canadian Northern and other railways, and at
the same time the waterfront for
2600 feet would be improved by a
huge dock, with the lots inside all
filied in ready for building of mills,
factories, or warehouses aud terminal sheds. Carrying out the work
on this unit would widen the street
to 192 feet, 3 17 feet wider than at
present,   and   permit   the   entry   of

Eighth street last Bummer, New
Westminster was actually i-ommenc-
Ing work on its harbor; beginning
the expenditure of ha.f a million dollars voted by a confident people; a
half million dollars for (he first
unit of port Improvements calculated to require ten mi.lions in treasure and ten years in time to perfect.
Other ports are still talking and
planning but nre- doing little or
nothing. The first unit of New
Westminster's harbor work is well
under way, and another year will
sc the completion of this unit and
work commenced on the second unit
ni what is planned to be made tho
greatest fresh water port on the
American continent, from which
will How the product of almost half
a continent, and Into which will
flow the Imports of an empire.
And rrom the beginning, New
Westminster was cluing things
while Other communities were talking about  it.
.More than two years ago the first
appropriation of money was made
by the people of New Westminster
for harbor purposes, when tlle late
.lohn A. Lee, then mayor of the
city, placed $15,000 in the estimates
for securing surveys of the river,
waterfront and city, from which
plans could be drawn for harbor
bul.ding. One of America's foremost harbor engineers was secured
for this work in the person of .Mr.
A. O, Powell, and whom more recently a great American port commission with many millions of dollars lo spend In harbor building,
attempted to secure, but who refused to abandon the work ho had already undertaken for this community.
Under the direction of this engineer, surveys were made and comprehensive p.ans for harbor and city
uuiidiug were drawn, 'l'he river
was accurately mapped from ti-e
Pitt to Steveston, the hills were pictured to scale; the waters were
sounded and the borings were made
oa lano; eub und flow of tides and
currents were gauged, and a staff of
engineers was employed for many
months In securing for this city data
which no other Pacific port possesses. New Westminster knows
w ii.ii it has and what can be doua
with it. Complete hurbor plans
were uraw.i, discussed, corrected,
and approved, and the principle
agreed to and the principle adopted
that everything doue and every dollar expended should be done and
expended to curry out some portion
of the approved pi ane for harbor
building so that In the course of the
years, with uuii after unit undertaken and completed as required
the Fraser river from the Saiu-
heads io the Pitt should form ono
gigantic, perfect.y equipped liar-
of  thy  world.
This port must be Luilt, decided
the farsigbted men of imagination
und nerve, who fathered the idea.
Bul how?
On the eastern seaboard are
great national ports to the building     ul     Which   many   millions    of
money Ius I D dUVOted  by tli ��� fl 'I
eral treasury, 'ibe ta.sk wns loo
large tor New \yestmiustai jusi
awakening to the possibilities and
po ��� ii lallties ol the future -a-..--;
and of the Fraser, 'llie Dominion
govei iraenl was appealed to an I me
City   was   told   thai   It   nilgu;   lOlloW
ni" same course as that taken by
the eastern ports and it would
share In tin* assistance granted by
the Dominion government, and ibis
would be made one of the national
ports, This would, however, take n
year or two aud New Westminster
wanted to get busy. Leijlfl.atlon
had to be drawn and passed by lh-3
Dominion parliament, providing lor
the creation of a port, the appoint-
million would be sufficient to finish
this unit, the engineers decided, and
the  improvement  was  ordered.
It was found that there were no
harbor making plants on the Pacific.
Coast .arge euough for the job, and
contractors would not undertake
the work save at a price I hut would
include the building of the plant to
handle it. Were the work done in
this manner, it would have meant
that the city would pay for the
plant, pay for the work, and have
the work while fhe contractor
would have plant and pay both.
The city then determined to own
Its own harbor malting plant-, and
plans were drawn for it. it included a big bucket dredge, two unloading hoists electrically operated, a
fleet ol barges and a harbor tug. The
harbor engineer showed to the satisfaction of the council that the city
could build its plant, do the work
itself, pay for the work and have
the plant, for what it would bave to
pay the contractors.
More than a year ago tenders for
the different portions of the plant
were calied for, and the orders given, and for several mouths folow-
ing the assembling of the plant
went on.
The uredge was built, machinery
secured and  installed,  and  a  plant
secured   which   is  the   last   word   in
effectiveness,       handling     material
cheaper than any apparatus ever be-
mre designed and used for this purpose.     Two   big   unloading     hoists
were   built     and     equipped,     three
barges,   each     carrying    some   400
yards  of  material   built,  and   a  tug
secured  and   powered  all  at  a  cost
approximating JldO.OOO,    Pile driv-
Ing and dock building is being done
by  contract,  the   balance  by  crews
working  under the harbor engineer
lirect,    Tlie piling is now practically   completed   from   Eighth   to   Beg-
Die street  with  a lurn at the latter
Btreet,  close  piled  so as  to  form  a
dead   water  basin   below  that  point.
Filling in has been going on for some
weeks and many thousands of yarde
of   material   has   been   dumped   behind  the  big dock.
Efficiency has> -been the measure
of everything called into employ in
building Xew Westminster harbor.
While the lowest tender thai could
be secured for material on barges
alongside the dock was 30 cents per
cubic yard, with the complete plant
It is being put in place by the harbor engineer for much less, the
estimate being IS cents per yard,
and of this the labor cost is only
>m-half. When later, two and three,
shifts per day are employed and the
plant is working continuously, this
figure may still be reduced. To
show the efficiency of the plant It
may be remarked that some 1,600
cubic yards of gravel is lifted from
the river bottom, loaded on barges,
towed down to the work, unloaded
and dumped into place across a clock
64 feet wide by nine men in eight
hours. One of these barges Is unloaded In something under four
hours at a cost of say $10, when

shovel, It would require a hundred
men for ten hours at a cost of (850,
A year ago while orders for the
several units, of the harbor building
plant were being placed, plans for
harbor building for all time of another kind were being drawn. A
bill providing for this formation of
'he Port of New Westminster and
i renting a harbor commission was
,' epared. it was ind roduci d and
supported by Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P
for New Westminster, who has ev< r
re illzed the possibilities of the Pra
Ber as a freshwater harbor and has
always been closely identified with
pi am for its development, Early
last spring this bill became a law*
an ' bout the same time the crown
Krant of all water lots not reserved
or previously alienated w-.-is received
obligation  assumed   by  the  city  in
its expeuditures up to that time.
A few weeks ago Messrs. F. J.
Coulthard and deorge Blakeley were
appointed members of the harbor
commies-ion, and on Monday night
next ithe resignation of Aid. A. W.
White will be accepted by the city
council to be followed at once by
his election to the commission. Immediately thereafter the commission
will meet and -organize and then will
be prepared ito undertake the work
with which it has been intrusted. A
bylaw Is now being prepared pro
vidlng for the transfer of the waterfront property to the commission by
the city, and this bylaw will, it Is
expected, be placed before the electorate at thp general city election in
January. With the transfer of this
property to the commission, the port
will be in position to secure Dominion assistance In its development,
assistance which, to the extent of
millions if necessary, the Dominion
is pledged to grant.
It must be remembered that exact-
lv ns the city loaned its credit for
beginning work .c the harbor, the
Dominion Government will loan its
credit for carrying on the work, but
it is not expected that either the city
or Dominion government will ever
be asked to pay the cost, as the
improvements will be made in such
-i manner that they will bear not
only their own cost, but in the years
to come pay huge earnings into the
city treasury, for, under the act
creating the port, any surplus left
after meeting the obligations of the
improvement must be turned into
the city treasury. In effect, the Ilo-
minto-n guarantees harbor bonds in
sufficient amount to build a port.
Port earnings are expected to meet
by the commission will be the opening of outlying areas for industrial
purposes. In connection with this,
ithe Front street unit was the first
step. This will permit the passage
of any number of railways through
the heart of the city, common user
rights having been conserved by the
city on all tracks to be laid in future, from the industrial siites of
the bottom lands of Coquitlam to
the areas awaiting industrial development in Queensboro, on Lulu Island and Annacis Island. This development will of necessity be preceded by the erection of a 'bridge,
making Annacis Island accessible by
rail, and the bridging of the slough
will likely be the first step in developing the Annacis unit of New
Westminster harbor, where an immense dead water basin will be
formed by damming the head of Annacis slough, provision having been
made for docks and landing equipment for all the commerce now using
tire Pacific water routes. Even
this unit can be divided into sub-
units and progress made as expansion of commerce and industry demands. Powers are given the commission to build and operate dock
railways, loading and unloading
equipment, wharves and warehouses,
and the plans contemplate the establishment of a complete dock system
similar to those operated on the
Thames,  the Clyde and  Mersey.
Community building as well as
harbor building is embraced In the
plans prepared by the harbor engineer, and community building includes roadways, more important in
many respects 'than waterways. The
plans provided for straightening Columbia street, this thoroughfare be-
iuu carried across the North Arm to
Lulu   Island   direct,  and   from   that

engineering, incidental expenses and! Fraser level to the summit  in  Bur-

adopted and for which applicants are
in line for sites, the reclaimed lands
will bring In a rental of $30,000 annually for twenty years, and after
that time much greater sums, as the
rentals may then be increased by
the council or port commission. Interest on bonds is $22,500 per year,
leaving $7,500 for sinking fund,
which will extinguish the debt in
33 years. Experts have declared
the whole scheme tb be exceedingly
profitable, not counting increased
revenues after thirty years.
With the completion or the unit
at present under way in a year, it
is expected that the improvement
will be extended northward towards
the Brunette, and southward to Lulu
Island. In each and every case it
ls planned to make the rentals carry
tbe burden of the  work.
ni'.by at a very low grade, with other
highways radiating from the city calculated to bring it close to the communities of the peninsula and valley.
And all this preparation, all this
work of building a port, is largely
for the purpose of retaining within
its natural channels the flow of commerce to and from the prairie provinces of Canada and Mie interior of
British  Columbia.
There is no sentiment In the dollar; trade will flow as surely as
water flows down hill where the way
is made, easiest and cheapest. Wi-'
the opening of the Panama canal the
divide on which Canadian trade will
separate the flow eastward to the
Atlantic or westward to the Pacific
will be far in the prairie provinces,
and the product of the wheat fields
of  an  empire   will  come   westward
In fixing the rentals, for all lots 1 through the passes of the Rooky
embraced in the first unit, the city j mountains, down the valleys and tc
council   was  guided  by  the  cost  of! ports  on  the   Pacific   for   transhlp-
the improvement, and fixed -hem
a ra'.e which would just maintain
the improvement and extinguish the
cost in some 33 years, and taking the
assessed value of the unimproved
lots alienated by the crown some
years ago and Immediately alongside
the lots now being improved by the
city, are considerably less than 5
per cent of the value of the lots.
The rental ls graduated ln either
direction from the centre of the city
where the waterfront Is held to be
more valuable and costs more to improve, rentals close tb Lulu Island
and  up  closer to the  bridge   being
ment to Europe, to the Orient, to
fhe uttermost ends of the earth. Tlu
Fraser is the natural outlet for this
traffic and the current of grain will
come unless diverted to some other
route or blocked by the failure of
those entrusted with the building of
New Westminster harbor and Improvement of the Fraser waterway
to carry out the mandate they have
received. The railways are doing
their share, but it is their business
to carry t'he traffic where It may
be carried the cheapest. But the
railways cannot do It alone.    In di-
verting the commerce of half a cofl-

The system being followed is one
devised by J. Fr'as LeBaron, the
world's greatest authority on river
improvement, who has examined
many rivers and advised in their improvement. Of the Fraser, below
New Westminster, Mr. LeBaron says:
Between New Westminster and the
Bull, the course of the river is nearly
���straight, the bends being very easy
and elhort and the width abouit one-
half mile, so that the channel forms
a superb highway for vessels of all
classes. The distance from New Westminster lo the gulf Is 22.72 miles.
Within this distance, there are at
present seven places where the depth
is less than 25 feet at low water, or
a total of 6.0(1 miles, in which the
cut required to give 26 feet varies
from 2 to Hi feet of sand. I'm* the

nil of I e ". 'irk suggested by Mr,

there can be no doubt whatever of
obtaining a channel twenty-five feet
deep at low water from the gulf to

carried ou-t.
"There Is now a twenty-five foot
channel for two-thirds of the distance through the sandheads, and It
