I Railway Construction in 60 Days
Premier McBride Makes Important Announcement
Pacific & Great Eastern
Railway Will Begin
•I Construction at Once
On the Completion
of Plans
During tbe course of bis spoech at
Kamloops on Wednesday ovening, Pre
mier McBride mado specific reference
lo tbat portiou of his great railway
policy which deals with tdo construction of n Hue of railway from North
•Vancouver to Fort Goorgc, in eenuec
tion with which he made tho gratifying
statement that ho hoped to seo actual
building operations begun on tbis line
within sixty   days.   The tenor of the
Premier's remarks lipou that occasion
is reported as follows:
'"The Premier then proceeded to ro
fer to (be proposed construction of the
Pacilic ami Great Eastern from Van
couver to Fort George.   There was, he
said, still a very large part of tbe In
terior absolutely devoid of trtusporta- j
tion.   Tbe new road would, be trusted,
be   undor  construction  within  sixty.
days and It would be pushed with tbe
nftnost expedition.   It would givo an j
opportunity  to thousands  upon  thou
sands of people to find new homes au I,
would form purl of another great Canadian highway aud biud the entire community of Cauada closer together. The
building of Ihis lino would uot cost au
.acre of land except wbat was used for
right-of-way and would not involve
a cont of tbe people's money except
as u guarantee.'1
Interviewed later, upon behalf of tne
Express by our special press correspondent, Premier McBride stated tbat
be bad been positively assured by the
builders of tbe line, Messrs. Foley,
Welsh and Stewart tbat tbey are now
working upon tbo plans for tbe road
and that tbey intend to push tbo same
to completion at tbo earliest possible
date, further that immediately tbo
plans are finished, they will start con
struelion ou tbe Pacific aud Groat
Eastern Railway. Foley, Welch and
siev.ari havo further given tho premier their opinion tbat tbese preliminaries will all bo disposed of and that
they will get started upon actual con
structiou within sixty days.
Tbis is tbo best of good nows,for tbe
North Shore, providing, as it docs, tbo
positive assurance that barring unforeseen occurrences, earth will be flying
within two months upon that railway
system which will provide tbis side of
the Inlet with tbe actual fulfilment of
the loug deferred hope for connection
with the great trausconlinental railway systems aud wbicb will mark the
practical commencement of tbat era
of rapid and tremendous development
whose result will be to make uf the
community on tho North Shore one or
tbo foremost industrisl coinmorcial ami
manufacturing seaport centres ou the
Pacific coast.

gasso Sea, au area iu mid Atlantic of
light winda and variable currents made
memorable by lhe pen of Julius Cham
hers, sbe will probably travel iu a cir
clo for a long series of daya.
Metal ships are seldom left derelict;
hut there sre not wanting remarkable
derelict drifts even of this class.     In
October, 1876, Ihe Hritisb iron I ur.jii.
Ada Iredale was abandoned, witb her
coal cargo buruiug fiercely, when -.'..nnn
miles  east  of  the  Marquesas  Islands,
South Pacific.       Hbo moved    slowly
westward   with  the    soulb  equatorial
rurrent,  traveled   2,600   miles   in   24)
days, and was tli. n picked  up by a
French warship, which towed    her to
Tahiti.     After the fire bad died out
the bull was repaired;   she was fitted
with uew masts and rigging and has
,'ier since been kuown as tbe Annie
Johnson of Sao Francisco, California.
On ber being boarded some time ago
sbe waa still doing well, and quite a
handsome   vessel.    The   British   ship
Minimi-nil',   anoih, r imu    vessel,   was
left under similar conditions about 660
miles  weet of Lima,  Peru, io  dune,
1881.     She drifted   ashore   ou tbe
Island of Henna 241 days Ister, unit
for  repairs  aud  bad  travelled   l,itM
miles in tbe interval.     Hi December,
1892, the big four-masted British ship
Honresfoid was abandoned, also witb
coal cargo on fire, wben in 8 deg. N.,
118 deg. W. a week later she was ^bled; but nothing more wu beard of\er
for just three years, whon ine American whaler   Alice Knowlcs    reported
having passed tbe derelict io 9 deg. Is,
lit deg. E.    Her ultimate fate ia un
known.    In April, 1882, a similar vu
ael, the Falls of Afton, was precipitate
ly abandoned while on the way from
OUegow to Calcutta witb a valuable
cargo.    A few daya later she was pick
cd up by a French vessel and taken
to Madeira.    Since tbat time sbe has
liad many succeasfu) voyages; but the
then master suffered severely under tbe
Undlng of a court of enquiry.    In May
11)02, while bound from Australia to
.California, the metal ship Faunie Kerr
WM left, witb her coal cargo on fire
to 20 deg. N, IW deg. W.      Nearly
twelve months later, near Formosa, the
derelict wu boarded by the chief oil-
leer of the steamship Volute, who look
have beon legally claimed   had    Bin
reached a Froueh port.     In 1807 tbii
vessel, while carrying timber    fron-.
Puget Sound to Australia wont ashon
not far from ber destination. She agalr
floated off after her abandonment; und
ouce again a tugboat earned suh'Bgi
by bringing the derelict into port uu
injured.   In October, 11)05, the Swedish
wooden barque Orion, suit laden, wui
picked  up  by  the steamship  Hxotoi
City and   brought to   Hulifai, N S

ruria.   She was placed under llm Brit
ish flag, converted into u barquontlno
renamed the Marion C. uml resumod

however, this vessel wns again uban
doued, and lhe United Stutes ship Leli
anon, which had been out lo search fnr
this dangerous derelict, emled her eg
islenco by tbe aid of torpedoes, ubuut
800 miles east of Sandy Hook, Ihe en
trance to New Vork hurhor.
Bather  umusiiig  incidents  crop  up
occasionally  wilh  leaped  to derelict
ships.    The Ueruian steamer Fursl Bis
marck collided with the French sailor
Louise,   At once the crew of lhe latter
clamored  in  lie taken  oft' what   they
deemed tu be a siukiug ship und were
accommodated.     Thereupon un ollicer
and some sailors from the sleamer of
fercd to hail the derelict iu lhe nearest
purl or perish in the attempt. The vol
unteers wsre successful, and  received
inn thousand murks  for salvage ser
vices rendered.     In lsui the Portug
esc barque Para, with a curgo of lum
bor from Penascola wr Trouvillo, was
abandoned by   her  erew   near  Scilly.
They took refuge ou the British steam
er Bourbon, which promptly put a vol
untcer crew on board and Ihey liruuglil
her safely  to  Falmoiilb       Not   lung

with the derelict, ou hoard uf which

Llout. Col. Hamilton Mwrltt, pf
Toronto, recently ililatcil on '■ Canadian
Defence," with tlio object of cun
vlneing bis audience that a bettor
lytom nl military cervlcj) 'could In
evplved, and (bat It wai to a better
sorvico that we owed tlio tag that
iimiii'ii ovor ni tuiiiiy. Ho ii'i'i'ri-.'ii to
ivnrilii ii|iuii.'ii by Lee, Cpnnai) Poy|e,
and Buskin, in prqve tbat tbe prevailing apathy ot tbo people to military
service wai absolutely uujustiliablo
All history proved that it wus to the
liuniy, the in'ii'iii'iiyiiiK and tbe
valiant tbat empire was giveu, and
not to those wbo placidly retted be
hind the naval and military loreei ol
another couutry, tl Canada waa doing today. .He itld ho did not wish to
crillclso any branch of our prosout
militia, but ratber wanted to ascer
tain It tbere was not really a bettor
system under wbicb our men could
be trained. "Ia Canada worth de
fendingl II a defence Bjstoui uoces
saryl" asked tbo ajioaker. He then
roforred to tbo dofonces of a country,
as tbo rosorvo funds of it, in the same
way tbat a financial, institution always
maintained a rest fuud, in caso of
trouble or a rainy day. There might
nover arise a need for them, but they
were mine tbo less indispensable. He
said that it was ouly tho fact that
Qormany knew that adequate defence
forces were ready lo oppose ber, that
sbe eousidcreil it tho best policy to
rotreat from Agadir. It certainly war
not from any altruistic motivo that
she did not push forward iu ilml
business. Ucriuauy and Japan bavo a
lii'lmiir policy of expansion, aud they
both wero each day addiug to their
national armament, and taking ad
vantage of every opportunity to in
crease the site of their respective iouus
of iniliii'iii'i' No one imagined* tbat
tho preparations which were going on
in these two countries of a warlike
nature were fur the purpose of keeping
invaders away from tbeir shores or
territory; the real motive was too obvious.
"Now tho great question," said tbe
speaker, "is, bas Canada a sullicienl
force available for tbe defenco of the
country!" He contended tbat sbe bad
not; its basis and its numbers wero too
small. The old Frcuchllauailiaiis bad
a compulsory military service such as
all countries except Britain and tbe
I'nited 8tatcs had today. This system,
which was an cxctlleut one, and prov
idcil adequate protectidli for tho early
French settlors against thoir blood
thirsty enemies, the Iroquois, was in
stitulcd by Ihut master military mind,
Frontcnac, and was so complete and
perfect tbat tbe British after ihe fall
of Quebec, did nol chaugc il. lu 1808
both Upper and Lower Canada adopted
tbe same system, and in 1812, when tbe
war broko out betwocn tbe United
Slates and Ureal Britain, tbe invaders
fouud evory man in Canada trained in
military service, so mucb'ao lhal Ihe
Canadians gained thirty three victories
over tbeir American enemies. The
systoni continued iu both Upper and
Lower Canada until confederation,
when it bad degenerated inlo a farce
iu all parts of the country except Nova
Scotia, where tbey seem to have kept
tbo system iu a healthy condition.
At the mis' of confederation, we
required tbe adequate defensive
system, and yel today all we have
is the militia system, wbicb cau
scarcely be described is adequate. The
colonel then told at some length bis
experience in Switzerland,!where tbey
havo a citizen army, and be said Ibere
was entirely lacking iu that' country
any feeling Ibat the whole business
was issinissi.il ij, and lhat il was use
lm, aa some were prone to regard the

Contrary (o the usual practice lhe Assessment Notices foi
1912 have been sent to tlie registered owners of property
according to tlje Land Registry records!
Up to the preient, purchasers have been in the habit of
notifying the city authorities that the property had'ehanged hands
io that notices of assessment and taxation should not go aslray.
This form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Ollice.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it hu sold and which has since changed hands two or three
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchssed from it that they should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so that they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being aucued and
pay taxei u they fall due.

doubt sounded tbe key note which will
everywhere predominate throughout
their entire itiuorary.
In view ef tbo policy of "passive
resistance" which appears to have beer
adopted by tbe Liberal .party, relative
to the pending election*, the presonl
tour of the Premier cannot strictly
speaking, be termed an electiou tour.
It la not a tour designed' to combat
the effect of a well organized and
strong attack upon bis government and
its policy by bis political opponents,
but rather a campaign which has for
its object tbe elucidation from lhe pub
lie plutform and in tho presence of the
electors, of tho details of those prodigi
one developments which are involved
in Hie government policy as embodied
in legislation enacted duriug tbe ses
siops of the legislature, recently terminated. The several features of tbat
policy urn so manifestly designed to
promote the best interests of tho pro
vime upou a large scale and in the
broadost scusp, that the more intimate
ly the citizens are aci|tiainted witb its
details, the more cordial and universal
will become Ihe support accorded the
- The broad and statesmanlike view
which Premier McBride takes with ro
fereuce to tho outlook aud the duty
of the government wilb rospect thereto
is evidenced by bis statement at Kam
loops to tbe effect tbat the policy of
the government as to railway expansion
was not merely provincial bul Cauadi'
ou ami Imperial, aud further that the
i ..I ...i in. wesl including Hritisb I'oluin
bia was iu Ihe march of great events
and the government must be prepared
to meet those events with courage and
determination. The policy of the gov
eminent, upon which the present ap
peal ie being made lo the couutry, bears
His iiiiiiii.-iiiI..alii.' hall mark, in every
feature of it, of having been conceived and framed in the selfsame broad
ami enterprising spirit which the above
terms imply and as such will appeal
with irresistible force lo the uiilitaui
spirit of Ibe west as represented by
the public minded and progressive cil
irons of ibis great province.
The Premier made a pronouncement
during the course of bis speech which
referred lo lbc probabilities of actual
railway construction upon tbe Nortb
Shore of Hurrard Inlet, which will be
received locally witb the greatest gra
titration. Afler referring to the
benefits to lie derived by Kamloops
from tbe construction of the C. N. B.
lines, the development pf tbe Nortb
Thompson valley and tbe coustructiou
of lhe railway line from Kamloops to
Vernon, the Premier declared "1 trust
to see the Pacific aud Ureat Eastern i
roilwey under construction within six
ly days." Inasmuch as the actual
commencement of railway construction
is llic one remaining essential to Nortb
Shore prosperity this announcement
will prove peculiarly acceptable locally
and its realization will not olily con
firm and substantiate all those anticipations of rspid developments upon
which have beeu bssod tbe iuveilmenl
of lhe very large amount of money upon
lhe pari of the purchasing public which
has been made upon tbe Nortb Shore
within tbo paat two or three weeks,
but will justify the continuance apd the
yet further enlargement of sucb Investment.
to be ablo to adduce such incontro
i i'i i ibis evidepce that concurrently witl
the activity ip the realty market, thori
is in progress a strong and rapidly In
creasing movement in the important
matter of the construction of dwell
ing houses ond other buildings through
out both the city and the district. The
demand for dwelling houses has fm
iiiun) months, been greatly in udvanei
of the supply. The prodigious ineruasi
iu tbe tolal of building permits pro
videa positive assurance that u mnn
advanced stage of civic devolopmenl
has uow been attained, namely au ere
of extensive and rapidly incrensini
activity in the erection of busiuesi
blocks and dwelling houses for the ac
oiiiiuoilatioii of Ihe great tide of pop
ulatiou which has now set in Inward

to the testimony of the uctual ligure.'

very minute, aud his habit of writing
willi blue ink upon bluo paper, wilb
frequent ioturliueations and cross lines

A machine fur felling trees Jibs been
invented in Berlin. The principle of
the Invention is thst hy pulling an or

lhe friction to bum a smooth grume
through lhe stem uf tho tree. The
American Consul General iu Berlin

invention by means of an ordinary
sleel wire about a yard in length whicii
Is provided wilh a single handed grip
ut each end, which be pullt rapidly
backwards and forwards around a cbair
or table1 leg, tbo wire thus burning u
groove into the wood. In actual tree
cutting a smooth, tensely drawn steel
wire, having s diameter of .030 in. to
111 iu, and a length about twice the
dismutcr of the tree, is placed around
Iho stem where the cut is lo be msde,
uud is fastened Bt cseh end by means
of easily manipulated clasps to the two
ends of a long steel eablo ur hawser
leading lo the rapidly transportable
electric puwer machine. In the case of
the harder wood varieties a wire with
side projections is substituted for or
Unary smooth wire, and iu some cases
a cable or two mure wires is used. Ku. h
