Mayor Sutherland—I second Aid
McKinnon's remarks, wc all realise
you are a body which will be an assistance and we are anxious to help
you. Some of your recommendations
are uuder wuy; the hill is lo bc grad

the crossings will be lixed. The
shacks cannot be removed without
certain reasons und as Aid. McKin -
non has said your Influence is necessary here much more than any logal
action which cannot bc taken except
on  delimit* complaints.
Any assistance tbe council cu l give
will be gladly tendered. Thc time Is
coming when money will have to be
spent on these sidewalks; our policy
is to put in all new sidewalks of
cement, und the Progress Club can
help by using there influence towards
getting the citizens to puss the requisitions for cement walks. We are
trying to make it an offence against
the byelaw to spread ashes on the
streets which would help to mitigate
thc nuisance complained oi. All

"Five years ago, I was taken down
with what the doctors called Inflammation of the Bladder—intense pains
in the back and loins, and difficulty in
urinating, and the attacks, which
became more Frequent, amounted to
unbearable agony. I became so weak
that I could not walk across the floor.
My wife read in the papers about
GIN TILLS and sent for a box. From
the very first, 1 felt that GIN PILLS
were doing me good. The pain was
relieved at once, aud the attacks were
less frequent.
In six weeks, the Stone in the
Iiladder came away. When I recall
how I suffered anil how now I am
healthy and able to work, I cannot
express myself strongly enough when 1
speak of what GIN PILLS have done for

"This menus that the people of
RevelBtoke will intercept the graiu
and other products of Alberta and
Saskatchewan while in transit to thc
ports of tho I'acilic const and divert
it down the Columbia river water
route, und thus ctlect a saving to tbe
Albortu farmer of -$3.30 pei ton in
freight aud (1 per ton in ifreo) tolls
tbrougb the canal, or a total of li 30
ci|uul to nearly  13 cents per bushel.
"It means that in order to meet
tbc cheap water route cumpetitium of
the Columbia river the people of
Vancouver aud other coast cities will
have to combine and in self-defence,
develop a waterway of tbeir own.
The Fraser and Thompson rivers will
havo to be improved by a .ystem ol
dams and locks, so that barges din
U- taken Irom btdswattl nwny up into the Intel ioi- to Revelstoke nr as
near Revelstoke at possible, say Bi-
cumous—and then by offering a short
er route and clivii|>ci rate* endeavor
to offset tho advantages posscBBid by
the Columbia river route, and thereby capture nt least a fair share of
the trad.* of Alberta and .Saskatchewan.
"It nienns that unless the Cunad
ian const cities lietrtu themselves „ii,|
at once improve their own watei
route so that barges may 1* taken
from tidewater, via the Fraser and
Thompson rivcis, to Revel itoke— or
nenr Revelstoke, say Sicamous—that
much ol the trade .,1 Allwrta nud
Sa"kiitchewan will not cme further
west  than Revelstoke,  and w.ll     M
lost to  Vancouver  and  other    coast
And when the grain laden barges
come down the Fraser river, will
they stop at N\w Westminster or bs
towed around from the mouth of
the Fraser river, through tbe stormy
wuter of thc Gulf of Georgia to Van
couver ? We think not—wc think
that thc barges will be towed thru'
the sheltered cbaunels of tbe coast
Islands to the harbor at Victoria,
and tbere loaded on to thc Ing 1000
ft. ships drawing 40 ft ot water and
which cannot be safely taken to either Vaucouver or Westminster, on
account of tbe cross-currents, tide -
rips and dangerous sboals tbat ex,si
in tbe narrow channols on tbe way
to Vancouver and New Westminster.
Then there are tbc delays from fogs,
tbe extra insurance risks and tha pii
otage due.*, to be taken into account,
thus Victoria, will liecoone tbe only
safe deep-water port on tbe Canadian   I'antic  coast.

Panama Canal
The following editorial appeared In
thc Calgary Herald of thc 13th inst:
Hevelstoke is waking up to some of
itB possibilities. The people ol tho
town are discussing the practicability of milking thc Columbia river nav
igalde as a trade route to the United States to tbe south, unci Portland, Oregon, is out to back the
Bcheme, suggesting that the Influence
of the Panama canal on Interior trim
sportutiou throughout the continent
is worth the attempt. Portland j,oes
further and is enthusiastic. It argues
that "it is possible to make tha
whole Columbiu river navigable from
the ocean to Revelstoke at no greater expense than has been incurred in
milking the Ohio navigable the year
around for great theis of coal barges. Thc wheat ol Alberta and Sas -
katehewaii could then be hauled by
rail to Revelstoke unci thence brought
by boat to Portland, where It could
he trans-shipped to ocean vessels for
the foreign market. The Canal will
so reduce the distance lit tween lure
nnd Liverpool that, although that
distnnce will still bc greater than
from Montreal and thc proposed
porta on Hudson's Bay, the fact that
Portland is ice-free while the Canadian ports are closed by ice during a
iai cm part of the wheat-shipping a a
sun would certainly Becure to Portland a large Bhare of the traffic of
the Canadian wheat belt. Sah an
