CITY COUNCIL
Little business other than that of a
routine character was transacted at
last evening's meeting of the city
council. 'Iho correspondence was remarkably light as a result of the postponed meeting uu Thursday of last
week.
The most important business uf Ihe
evening was broached whin A'd. Dick
arose lo move a resolution concerning
the aeiinii of Ihe provincial govern
ni.nl in discontinuing work un ihe
low level luiiil through Moudyville.
The resolution presented in a lorecful
manner |lit- necessity for a highway
connecting Ihe city of Norlh Vaiuou
ver to Moudyville and the Keith road.
The icsoliiiion was passed unanimously and copies will lie sent to the pro
viiteial department requesting the rea

companies snd municipal.in. concern
ed in tho construction of the Second
Narrows bridge Ihe alderman summarized the meeting and Ihe final decision
of the ropresenlalius. A detailed re
port of lbs meeting itself will be found
in another column of this publication.
The city engineer presented uioporl
on the Ilh street widening nnd recommended that the cily acquire :i strip
of land 10 feel in width on each side
of the street from Forties Avenue tu
St. David's Avenue nn the initiative
plan. After tlie completion of the
work the street would be 100 fiet aids'
and would he one of Ihe most b.auti
ful sti.ets in the city. The estimated
cost of tho work would Iw IfflJibO.
This recommendation was relerred In
the Board of Works with power to
act.
The Sister Superior of the Squaml <t
Indian Mission wrote asking lhat Ihe
church of Ihe mission ho exirapled
from taxes. The treasurer was in
■traded lu make rebate un the taxes

the church was rejected.
The applicalinn nf l.eonarh lire.ory
for the opening ol u road lu bis lots

The cily engineer reported that he
had taken levels along Williams Ave

struct ing a drain and had found Ibal
Ihe ditch would have to be about 1400
feet long and would coal about 1600.

on account nf Ilie diy condition of

that the department were serinusly
hiindiciipped as regards hydrants,   on
account ol Iho recent sewor work
which had in some cases partly buried
'them.- Ihu hydrant directly in Irontaf
tho plant was useless for tho majority
of tho lime ou account of the intones
bout which at limes charred thohosi

The total loss ol property to the
Wallace Shipyards Ltd, is estimated to
be about $200,000, part ol which is
covered by insurance. Tbs ways, although drawn well up remain practically uninjured and will no "doubt
exist to dock many more,ships lor rs-

IMMIOBAT|ON TO BRITIHB
COI.I'MBIA
Official statistics just issued show
that during the fiscal year 10101011 a
total of 64,680 immigrants came tn
this province. This is more than one-
sixth nf the tolal immigration tn the
Dominion for the year, which reached
record breaking figures, namely BU,'
084.
It has been computed that the census " just completed will show thst
Canada has a population of approximately eight million people. The
probability ia that British Columbia
will show a total of about 310,000.
Tho  growing   popularity  of British
Columbia, with the migrating popula-
lion   ol   the   older   countries   which
is   flowing   toward   Canada,   may  he
gauged therefore, from the fact   that
while possessing one thirty-second part
ol the population nf the Dominion this
province last year received one tilth nf
the entire immigrant arrivals in Canada.    This   clearly   shnws   that   lbs
campaigns nl publicity carried nn   liy
tho provincial government and Ihe re
ppective cities throughout the province
are proving effective, that those lain
iliee nr iadividuals in Ihe older countries who aro thinking nf emigrating
are becoming inhumed as tn the me.
its of British Columbia and as they
become   possessed   uf   an   intelligent
grasp nl the situation Ihey ure choosing   this province   as Iheir   objective
point in larger and larger proportions-
In viow of this ever increasing pop
ularity it is highly gratifying lo note
that the report states that the imini
grants   wlin   have   proceeded lo   this
province   are of Ihe   very best   class.
It is quite evident that the influx un
nually  of   new   population,   equal   to
twenty per cent,  of existing population musl exert  a very strong influence upon the standard of oitixenship
and likewise upon Burial, ciimmerrial,
religious   and   all   other   institutions
within the province but Ihe serious ua
i'ii.- ol the situation is greatly relieved  when  it is understood   that    the
class ol Immigration attracted   is   ol
the highest.
At the same lime, even when viewed
in ite most fnvurable light, the fuel
cannot be evaded, thai the annual in
flux ol new population representing
such large ratio in comparison with
the total resident population is
fraught wilh very grave considerations
both with respect tb the province in
which they setlle uud with respect to
the w.llai.• of the members of this
great multitude of new citizens, (an
British Coliiuibin, at her preaent stage
of development, absorb annually such
a large increase ol population? These
people ara not blessed with independ
eat means. Some ol them may have
sufficient money il addition to tin
expense of getting here, to celeb-
lieh themaelves in some line that will
give them independent iippmi, but
the most of them will doubtless \v
found dependent for oubsislence upon
employment provided for them by
some one else. Of these latter the majority will probably havo a small sum
ol money io their possession upon
their arrival which will provide for
Iheir needs (or a short time while they
eeek employment, but very many ot
tbera will be found io immediate need
ol some pieane ol livelihood.
What provision has been made by
those sources ol influence which induced tin* to cone to tbis province to
give tbem reasonable assistance when
tbey er tin t TVy wars led to cbooee
British Cotunsbi* as tbeir destination,
by  governmental   literature
some civic advertising,matter which
fell into their possession, or by the
reports sent hack by Iriende who hat)
preceded them and whoshed prospered:
Is it wise that upon arriving bore
they should find themselves confronted
hy the necessity nl doing as best Ihey
can without any assistance fanm any
quarter ? Yhey , are strangers in
a strange country, unversed in wreC
em conditions, inexperienced as tn
west, in methods nnd manifeetly at a
disadvantage for the time being. Properly assisted and encouraged they represent material for first class citizenship and will develop into members of
Bociety, a credit to themselves and to
any community which may secure
them ns residents, but if allowed to
drill the result may be otherwise in
many instances. Left severely alone,
compelled to shift for themaelves there
is all too strong a piolmbilitv that
many members nf this groat multitude
tlirnugh discouragement, disappointment and unsuccessful efforts to gain
a fooling, may not only fail of at
tinning that position ol usefulness
which Ihey are capable of occupying in
the sin ml order but thul Ihey may in
some instances through no fault of
their own, hut through stress of circumstances lie found in the downward
sralo nf existence, wilh possibilities ol
quite an opposite character.
It is advisable ip the public interests, thai provincial government und
civic governments should take seriously, tho conditions which are revealed
by these immigration statistics, that
they should carefully study the nature
of this inflowing population and its
possibilities fnr gnod nr fnr evil and
that ..nn- comprehensive and effective
system ■ In ni Id bo evolved and put into operation whereby every possible
protection and assistance would he c\
tended tu these new arrivals, with a
view I u safeguarding I hem against
their own mistakes, lo guiding their
initial ,ti.nli In secure employment
and generally tn help them tn help
themselves.
A elnser ncipiainlnnee wilb the par

would probably show that all bill a
very small proportion first mine In

great bulk uf immigration enters British <■dumbin nl present thrnugh tin

any - iheini. lur helping immigrants

Large as are the proportions to
which this tide of immigration has
already attained, we are as yet just
al the me,.pi nni of tlie movement,
which is destined to show greater and
greater magnitude from year to year
nnd the present, therefore, presents an

Fftotor ip Empire Building.
Twenty-five years ago Wedneeclsy,
June 98, the first transcontinental
train of the Canadian Pacific Hallway pulled out Irom Montreal for the
Pacific Coast. It was a memorable
occasion! marking the consummation
of the greatest work that Canada hud
ever undertaken.
For a country with lees than four
millions of people to build a railway
across the North American continent
-the lirst, and still ths only actual
transcontinental line connecting the
two great oceans-was a remarkable
achievement whose importance was
accentuated by tho (set that lor many
hundreds of miles its lines traversed
regions altogether unknown — where
men did not live-around the rock-
bound northern shores ol Lake Super
ior, across the far western plains
then in utter solitude, and over nature's majestic sky-scrapers in tbe
Canadian Bockiee.
fro leee wonderful has been the
growth and expansion of Canada's
great national highway during the intervening quarter of a century. The
company did not merely remain a
common carrier—it became nioio-a
developer and an empire builder-and
so potent a factor in filling tho wants
of others as well as the' vast army
of travellers that both on land and sea
the C. P. B. today Is a name to conjure with. From comparatively eiiisII
beginnings, as seen hy twentieth century oyos, it has developed into a
world encircling institution with nmi:
nificcnt Heels on ocean and inland
waters—an immigration ngensy I Bat
has peopled half a continent, even to
furnishing rcady-mado homes tu Iho
homeseckers-a forceful factor in tlie
development of mines and mining—
an inauguratnr of hni[0 irrigation
works lhat aro reclaiming a kingdom.
The company, ton, liesides having extensive car works at different points
wlioro thousand.) arc employed in
building its rolling stock, bus its own
telegraph and express services that
reach everywhere, and a chain of
palatial hotels to enmfortahly house
those who travel, and it even employs
Swiss guides to pilot, daring moun
tainccrs to dizzy heights and runs
snnnloriiims and summer resorts
whero the ploasuro seeker may hnli
day and the health nl Iho invalid lie
restored. Hs record fully justifies the
name happily hestowed upon it by an
eminent European—'Providence Incur
poratcd.'
A few figures will give sumo idea of
the greatness of its growth )
'flic total earnings In Ibtii] wcro a
little over |10,UOU,OtK), and the net
earnings less than ll,(SHI,UU0, the
surplus after deducting fixed charges
being JtiJi'i.lII. Ihis year's gross earnings will probably bo over flU4,00<J,-
IKK), and tho not earnings about |37,-
04)0,000. Tho mileage then was 4661
miles; today it is, including controlled lines, about 15,60(1 miles. The
number of passengers Iben carried
waa I .Mill,Till) and Iho lone nf freight
aggregated 3,016,16*. 'Ihe approximate figures for the past 111 iniiutliB
are over 12,000,000 passengers, and
Ill,:i60,000 Ions of freight. A comparison of (he figures shows that a
considerable reduction in the rates
has taken place. In 1886 the average oarninga |ier passenger per mile
was 'J.In cents aud freight avoraged
1.10 cents per ton por mile. Today
Ihe figures are for passengers I.IW
cenls por mile and for freight .800 cts.
I.n ton per mile. A comparison of the
equipment then and today shows bow
the company has kept pace with   tho
requirements of tho traffic l   .
provBinoi|t» such as double tracking,
reduction pf grades, curves eliminet-
-replaclng wpodep bridges with
steel structures, erecting new stations
Snd enlarging old ones, etc., and tbe
policy of extending branch lines
wherever needed is still being vigorously pursued.
In ono way only has the 0. p. fi.
remained ss it was, and that is in the
retention of the services ot officials
and employees. It is practically manned today as it was manned a quarter
of a century ago, with, of course, tho
addition of the many thousands required by the expansion ol ihs
road. The total number employed
now reaches 80,0110 and these ure
stationed in almost every civiluod
country on the face of the earth-

THE CARAVAN
THR START
When the day dawned on which the
start w»s to he made the caravan hud
been newly overhauled liy its owner,
and our belongings stowed aboard,-
so lliul it remained but Id fetch the
horses, lun liens: up and oil'. II fell to
my lot to fetch llohliin, the grey hone
aforesaid, the bargain had been mnde
for hire tn lie paid in advance. This
was the first duty, nnd lb™ cur attention was focussed nn Dobbin. He
looked very healthy as he munched
awny nt tho hoy in tho rook, but
manifested w desire tn lonvo his haven of rest. His owner wheeled bint
in the door, and gave me u leg up,
nnoe aboard the Benealion when Ihe
home moved was very peculinr nnd op
dismounting 1 discovered ihnt ihreonl
bin legs moved fairly easily, but Iho
fourth had a slower movement, n Case
of dot three and carry ono. The owner quieted my apprehensions by declaring lhat he was o trillo stiff each
morning, but loosened up niter Working awhile. So loading tho.nnimul to
the rendezvous, on animated discussion arose as to whether we should
lake him or un. Evil counsels prevailed and wo took him. He was too stilt
to put iu as leader and ns the first
mile was down hill on o Bleep grade
the other horse and von might have
run over him, so hitching him behind
we proceeded to the bottom of the
hill. On arriving there and looking
around we espied Dobbin about ouo-
iliinl nf the way down following patiently in our path. His etili leg was
thawing out some nnd we hitched him
in frnnl, feeling lhat it wus belter after ull lo run Ihe chimin: of running
over him to tlmt nf I, sun   him.
The first hours nn the road were
spent in adjusting ourselves to tho
caravan, and (ho committee parcelled
oul tho work of cooking, etc. as impartially as they knew how. The stopover for the week-end was to ho llol-
lon-hyliowlond and tin the route
were several places of interest. Whol-
ley with its ancient church nnd mined
abbey, the lust uliliot John Paslew,
having joined the luckless insurrection known, as "Tlie Pilgrimage nl
Grace," was finuily captured and
brought In expiate his Ircusonon Gallows Hill, overlooking the Wide domains, nnd glorious fabric of tho
iibbev which was one of Ihe first religious houses to be Biipprcssed in .the
roign of Henry VIII. The choir stalls
in Ihe ehmeli are the ones which originally stood within the abbey church
nnd are elaborately curved, tbo miserere seats being illustrative nf the
trehd of monastic humour, having cartouche* representing the woes of tlm
married man which doubtless-helped
to rpopiwlle tho Inmates p| their, eple-
baie stale. The nest point of historic
inioriiHi was Clitherve, iti euaUo dot-
ipg buck to the Norman conquest, being a prominent feature jn th8 landscape for mil«s around. Ru»tword lips

"bnncoshire Wilphre,1' Mother non-
