Through Here, But Leaves
No Encouraging Message
Mr. wm. Whyte, vie* president of
tlio C.P.R., passed through the citj
tins mornlug on his way hack to
Winnipeg from the coast.
Mr, SVhytio when approached by tho
Mail Herald as to the possibilities oi
11111110 development "I the C.P.R, lu
RevelBtoke promised nothing definitely, but admitted tbat as traffic Increases it will It necessary from
tiini' to iiiiiii tu Increase the stall
here, and that ultimately there will
be considerably lurger works here
ihun ai  present,
"There is a pin.-islcut. rumor around this city thai the C.P.R. will
shortly establish auxiliary cur t-hops
here, is there nny found ition for
that rumor," enquired thc Mail-
Herald?
"Well, there may be," replied the
vice president, "but so far there is
nothing of that nature discussed. The
car .shops will proba ly bo establish
i-d on the prairies some place, but
as yet we have not decided that i|in*s
tion, and until we decide that we
will not probably discuss auxiliary
simps. You/ have a splendid location hero and one admirably suited to
our work and the possibilities of
tli is place are good.
"In Winnipeg on May 15th," Mr.
Whyte said, "the master mechanics
of the road will meet and discuss the
general welfare of the system, and
it is possible that at soma future
date they will meet in Kevelstoke, as
it is customary for ilio.se men to
meet yearly at diflerent places. Some
times it is at Winnipeg, sometimes
Fori William, and possibly sometime
it may be here. That, oi course, is
for  iiiem  to decide."
when ciuostioncd as to the opening
"i the Big Bend road Mr. Whyte said
that all hnd been done up there that
was likely to be done unlil traffic increase demands the lowering ol the
grades, and when that time comes
it may i c advisable for US to open
up that road. The preliminary survey has of course, been made, but
that is as far as development has
gone so far."
.Mr. Whyte was advised of the action of the Hoard of Trade and the
city in extending an invitation to
the master mechanics to meet here,
but admitted it would be hardly likely they would tind it convenient to
accept tbe invitation. He admitted
however, that It was a good move,
I and would perhaps do some good.
With the vice president in his private car "Manitoba" were Mr. J. O.
Sullivan, chief engineer of the western lines; Chief Justice Mathers, of
Manitoba, and Mi. llm. Harvey, man
aging director ol tbe Standard
Trusts. The party has heen to Vancouver and Seattle, and in the latter
place Mr. Whyte opened up a new
ollice for the C.P.R. which wns ncces-
s.tated by the Increasing business.
"Traffic is uood," Mr. Whyte suiil,
"and we look for an exceptionally
good yenr." Tlie party came in on
No. 9G nud left on the sume train
for Calgary.
-Mayor Hamilton has received a
replj to in- invitation to the mechanical men of the C.P.R., asking
them to meet here. Tbc reply came
under tbc signature ol Mr. Grunt
Hall, superintendent of motive power
land slated that he would hand the
mess.ige to the mechanical men when
they gathered in Winnipeg, but it
was scarcely probable that they
would sec iheir say deal to accopt
i Itatlon,
were received by
Majri i Hamilton anil Mr, W. II.
Pratl from Mr, 11. li. Vaughan,
bead nf th mechanical department
at Montreal, itatlng that Mr. Hall
h ,s conveyed the Invitation to him,
lut he regretted thai it would ],<•
Impossible to come fn ther west this
time. If tei thanking both tho
Board of Trade and the city he hop
ed that in tbe luture the mechanical
men      could  see  then   way  cleat       to
•m in.   to Reveletoke.
Most of Ihem are broke and when
the foreman and Interpreter deserted
them Ihey did not know what to do.
The rest left on the train, hilt it is
doubtful if they will be allowed across tbo lino now. it is a contravention of the alien labor law to bring
them in, ami II is thought here that
il was a scheme to got them out of
Lhe United States Into Canada. II
took them over two days to get here
.•nnl it is thought they crossed the
border st night,
None ol them had any receipt to
show that they had paid ihe agent
anj money, and they were all excited
last night, If they got hold of the
employment man they will likely take
.usticc Into tlicir own hands.

A few years later and lhe business

money out ol chickens. The business,
we were told needed business methods
and wc had the sho* factory system
and numerous other systems of how
to grow many chickens to the square
inch propounded. Poultry farms failed, the business by many was condemned as being a  myth, etc.
The beginning of the new century
introduced the tact that poultry on
the farm amounted to something, In
