Ih? work on the big spiral tunnel
which the C. P. R. is now making
through those towering mountains.
Cathedral Peak and Mount Wapta, is
proceeding so satisfactory that it is
p.-ebable the transcontinentnl expresses of the company will begin to run
tkrcugh the tunnels next fall. This i-
the information given by Mr. James A.
Macdonnell, of the contracting firm of
Macdonnell, Gzowski & Co., who are
building ove - a mile of tunnel work.
Theoojectof the tunnel is to avoid
the steep grade which, as all who have
travelled throagh to the coast will remember, calls for thi'tM or even fuu
engines to push and pull the train up
the "Big Hill" between Hector and
Phld, tt tr.e summit of the Canadian
Rockies., When the tunnels ore com-
r!eted, the present mileage between
these two pla es will be increased from
.our to eight miles, but the grade will
be reduced by exactly one hundred per
cent. There is one tuuiel on each side
of the river, one bi ing 3.2C0 feot in
length, and thn other 2,800 feet, and a
curious point about them is that the
exits will be almost immediately below
the entrance.
The tunnels are 17 feet wide and 26
feet high, and progress is being made at
the rate of from 30 to 40 feet per day.
The contractors, besides employing
800 men, have installed two larjre compressor plants, and active operations are
bring carried on at both ends of the
tunnels. As a matter of feet, I he ends
are only about eight hundred feet

The present indications are that
commencing with March 1st,, there will
oe a marked increase in immigration to
British Columbia, and it is expected that
the influx to this province will exceed
ill previous years.
This important announcement was
made to a representative of the News-
Idvertiser by Mr. C. E. Uisher,
tssistant passenger traffic manager of
.he C. P. R., with headquarters at
"While as yet there is hardly any
inovement to the we:t," said Mr.  Us-
sher, "we are confident that the immigration figures will be greatly in excess
of i hose for any previous year.   Last
year the majority  of the immigrants
who vame to this country from the Old
Country settled in the middle west, but
this numerous inquiries have been received by the company regarding  Ihe
province of British Columbia, and there
can   e n.i question but that hundreds
of immigrants will find chare way here,
settling ''n the interior and on Vancouver
Island.   With the aid of the Dominion
Government the best class of immigrants will be induced to come to Canada.   Splendid inducements are offered
in the western-part of the Dominion and
the influx last year was the greatest in
the history of the country.   Many came
from the United States and took  up
land in Prairie Provinces, but this year
many more are expect.d to cross the
border, while according to reports from
reliable sources,   hundreds of young
Englishmen having heard about Canada and the prospects la this couutry
will emigrate to the Dominion.   The
vanguard should be with us about the
first of March, and from then on there
will be a steady influx.
This promises to be a banner year for
all tourist traffic," concluded Mr. Us-
sher, "and already Easterners have
commenced moving to the Pacific Coast.
Many Manitobans are wintering in
California and many more will go
to the South before the warn weather
sets in."
Interrogated regarding the changes
in the passenger department of the C.
P .R., a report concerning which appeared in the western newspapers a couple
of weeks ago, Mr. Ussher took occasion
to contradict it, and that no changes in
the personnel of the passenger departments were coutemplated. -
