POURING INTO
INDUSTRIAL SUB.CITY
A Population of
25,000 to
30,000
Judging by what railway shops
have done for other oltlea not so important a railway centre as Ooqult-
lam will he, there will be n population of 25,000 to 30,000 directly supported by the Canadian Pacific alone
ut Coquitiam in two or three years.
Rut the Canadian Pacilic, although
important, is only the foundation,
only the beginning, of this young
daughter of Canada's wealth and prosperity. Coquitiam from its position
is destined to become the industrial
centre of British Columbia. Thc
man who owns property in Coquit -
lum will be rich when others who
preferred to wait instead of act will
be still plodding along.
Yesterday a forlorn junction point on a transcontinental railway, a patch of level land at the junction of two large rivers; today a'ompur-
atively small, but extremely busy town where the carpontcr's hammer, tho noise of dynamite blowing rut stumps and masses of earth the steam
shovel's everlasting grind, and the wild whistle of the locomotive foretell better thnn eloquence of the greatest orator what is going to happen. Tomorrow a metropolitan city bustling with street cars, great manufacturing industries, fust transcontinental freight and passenger train,
trans-racitic und trans-Atlantic steamers, great business blocks and places ot amusement, and everything else wbich goeB to make up a great
metropolis.     THAT IS  COQUITLAM
The change will be great and rapid—more rapid than thc unexampled growth of Calgary, Kdmonton, Winnipeg, Hnskatoon, nnd Regina, where .
millions of dollars were made for holders of lots near thc business district. Any growth which tukes place in any part of British Columbia or
the prairie provinces will but add to the enormous trade to be developed with the rent of the world through Coquitiam and the Panama Canal,
now nearing completion. THK GREAT OMNIPOTENT CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY IS BEHIND COQUITLAM. All the tentacles that
vast corporation has shoved out In every direction to garner in the enormous crops ol golden grain which ure making the prairie province- of
Cunudn famous—overy one of this railway's twelve thousund miles of stoel rails, will pay tribute to Coquitiam. Coquitiam will be the funnel
through which lho products will both go out and come in to feed and clothe thc mighty population which will fill  Canada up in the years to come
Coquitiam a Certainty;
Not a Mere Prospect
As there are many other townsites on the market at the present time
it would be well for thc reader to Lear in mind that Coquitiam is not
an ordinary townsite—IT IS AN ACTUALITY. A RKAL CITY IN THK
(CAKING. There is only one Panama canal, and it is almost upon us.
Coquitiam is a result of that canal, and as the Canadian Pacilic is the
greatest transportation system in the world, it is only natural and logical to suppose thut Coquitiam will lie the biggest  result.
llut apart Irom what it is going to be Coquitiam is something to
day. Cana-li n Pacific olllcials have announced n program of Improvement
and construct.0,1 ..uparalleled in the annals of railway operation. It means
that thousands of men will be employed there this spring, in fact, there
are hundreds THERE] NOW—building houses, laying ti-acks, building
streets and installing electric and trolley lines. Work has recently com
menoed on a hundred thousand dollar riiiunlhoii.se iii lhe immediate vicinity of Meridian Centre, Coquitiam, and this is but the beginning ol the
expenditure ol over half a million dollars- announced for the next few
months.
MONEY! and How
to Make it Quick
Once there were two men who came to America from the old Country.
Both were industrious and ench wns apparently fully as able to liol-l up
his end in thc world and become a man of influence nnd wealth — a big
man. Today, however, one is a millionaire, while the other is in very
average circumstances  financially.
The reason for this vast difference is not because one workeJ hard and
the other didn't; or because one drank and the other didn't. It was
simply because the man who is now a millionaire looked ahead, and
knowing thnt the fundamental wealth of this and every other country is
in good real estate, seized his opportunity. He secured realty when lt
was sellable at a ground-floor price,an,I waited till increasing population  multiplied its value to him.
Ever since the whole country hus been working for h.m, while the
other man hns lieen working for the whole country, The whole country
will work for you if you own part of Coquitiam. Meridian Centre, Coquitiam, offers you the Shanes to become independent—tn enjoy the life
which it  is your heritage to e.ijoy.
Look at the big men In Winnipeg. Calgary, Edmonton, Baskal i in
Regina, Vancouver, or any other big city and nee when tbey get the
foundation of their fortunes. In almost every rase it was through the Increase in land values, directly or indirectly. Coquitiam will eclipRe all
these places In rapidity of development and increase, nnd will eventually
probably equal or surpass them in iictual   population   and   weulth.
An Industrial City;
A coming Pittsburg
Coquitiam is situated in the Vancouver metropolitan district ,,n the
main line of the Canadian Pacilic. The Orand Trunk Pacific is also buying land for terminals in this vicinity, and another transcontinental rail
way is buying right-of-way. This added to thc fact that Coquitiam is a
deep-water port, means that manufactures locating here will have the advantage ot  thc cheapest  transportation  rates,  both by rail and  water.
Two big power companies arc developing enormous electric energy
near here and Iheir power lines paBs through the municipality. This
means electric light and power at Competitive rates, nnd in conjunction

A Brandon, Manitoba, lady recently cleared 14000 on Coquitiam pr,>
perty on a few hundred dollars' investment, nnd immediately on realizing
this profit instructed her broker to re-Invest the whole amount in Co
quitlnm property. One fortunnto person bought three lot* on tbc school
house road, and after paying in 1100 turned them over for a t'JOO profit
in one month. A lot sold in Niivembei* for 11000 was again turned over
recently for $1500, showing n profit ol ISO0 in two months. C. S.
Crompton, of Victoria, wbo bought n double corner In the name locality
