The First Three Are Coming In, But the Last (Money) is Both Coming In and Out of
The Seaport, Railway and Industrial Hub of British Columbia
and the Vancouver Metropolitan District
A Population of
25,000 to
Judging by what railway shops
have done lor other cities not so important a railway centre as Coquit
lam will be. there will be a popula -
tion of 25,000 to 30,000 directly supported by tbc Canadian Pacific alone
at i'oi|ii,tl.im in two or three years.
But the Canadian Pacitic, although
important, is only the foundation
only the beginning, of this young
daughter of Canada's wealth and prosperity. Coquitiam irom its position
is destined to become tbe industrial
centre of British Columbia. The
man who owiib property in Coquitiam will he rich when others wbo
preferred to wait instead of act will
be still plodding along.
Think of an ideal tile tor either a residential or industrial city, a deep dea port, the terminus ol the greatest railway system In the world, and
tho industrial sub city of a world metropolitan district, think of a place being suddenly transformed into these things, out oi nothing but a level
stretch of lnnd. II you can think of that you think of Coquitiam, which is not, going to Im; changed Into these things but which is being chang-
isl Into them now. tn three yearB where now only a thousand or two workmen un. preparing plans lor the greatest terminal development in tho
history of railroading, there will bc 5000 highly paid railway workers employed by the C.P.R. nlone nt Coquitlnm, supporting directly a population of 25,1100 to 3U00 people.
But thu C.P.R. is only the Btart at. Coquitiam. Five other railways are coming to thiB new seaport— Ibe (1. T. P., Canadian Northern, Great
Northern, Milwaukee and llarrimann system. Dozens of stcnniBhip lines will have their boats call here when tlie Panama cannl is opened a year
or two hence. Two electric power companies arc developing energy there now. They will supply both light initl power to Coquitiam at low, com -
petitive rates, and Coquitiam al60 can get black coal at the lowest rates, being an ocean port contiguous to Vancouver Island. This is one reason
why fifty manufacturers have already applied lor factory sites at Coquitiam. Both of these electric companies will build tram hues through
Coquitiam. connecting it up by modern suburban lines with Vancouver and other cities in thc Vancouver metropolitan district and the whole
Fraaer Valley. ,
Thc transition of Coquitiam into a great etty will bc rapid—more rapid than thc unexampled growtn of Calgary, Bdmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina, where millions of dollars were made for holders ol lotB near the busincssdiHtrict. Any growth which takes place in any rart
ot British Columbia or the prairie provinces will but add to the enormous trade to be developed with the rest ol the world through Coquitiam
and the Panama cannl, now nearing completion. THK GRKAT OMNIPOTENT CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY IS BBHIND COQCITl.AM. All
tho tentacles that vast corporation has shoved in every direction to garner the enormous crops ot golden grain whieh arc making the Canadian
prairicR—every one ot thia railway's twelve thousand miles ot steel rails will pay tribute to Coquitiam. And this is not all. Part at least ol
lhat freight traffic which will originate on thc innumerable lines of theso other railways will find its outlet through Coquitiam. Coquitiam will
be thc tunnel through which thc products will both go out and come into teed and clothe the mighty population which will fill up Canada in thc
years to come.
MONEY! and How
to Make it Quick
Uncc there were two men who came to America Irom tbe old country.
Both were industrious and each was apparently tully as able to hold up
bis end in thc workl and become a man ol inllucnce and wealth— a big
man. Today, however, one is a millionaire, while the other is iu very
average  circumstances  financially.
The reason (or this vast difference is not because one worked hard ami
the other didn't; or because one drank and the other didn't. It was
simply liecause thc man who is now a millionaire looked ahead, and
knowing that the fundamental wealth of tbis and every other country is
in good real estate, seized his opportunity. He secured realty when it
was Helzable at a groundlloor price, and waited till increasing popula -
tion multiplied its value to him.
Ever since thc whole country has beeu working for bim, whilo the
other man has been working for the whole country, The whole country
will work ior you if you own part of Coquitiam. Meridian Centre, Co -
qtiltlam, oilers you tbe chance to become independent—to enjoy tbe life
wbich it is your heritage to enjoy.
Look at the big nieu In Winnipeg,Calgary,      Edmonton,       Baskatoon.
Calgary, Kdmonton, Saskatoon,Regina, Vancouver, or any othor big
iity and soo where they got thefoundation of their fortunes. In aim
ost every case it was through the in-crease in land vnlues, directly or ind
ircctly. Coquitiam will eclipse allthese places in rapidity ot dovelopm
ent and increase, nnd will eventually probably equal or surpass them in a
dual  population nnd  wealth.
Coquitiam a Certainty;
Not a Mere Prospect
As there are many other townsites ou the market at the present time
it would be well for the reader to bear in mind thut Coquitiam is not
an ordinary townsite—IT IS AN ACTUALITY, A REAL CITY IN THK
MAKING. There is only ono Panama canal, and it iB almost upon us.
Coquitlnm is a result of that canal, and as tho Canadian I'acilic is tho
greatest transportation system in the world, it is only natural and logical to suppose that  Coquitiam  will bo thc  biggest result.
But apart from what it is going to he, Coquitiam is something today. Canadian Pacific officials havo announced a program of improvement
and construction unparalleled In thc annals of railway operation. It means
that thousands of men will be employed there this Bpring, in fact, there
arc hundreds THERE NOW—building houses, lnying tracks, building
streets and Installing electric and trolley lines. Work has recently commenced on a hundred thousand dollar roundhouse in thc Immediate vicinity of Meridian Centre, Coquitiam, and this is hut the beginning of the
expenditure of over halt a million dollarB announced for the next few
An Industrial City
A Coming Pittsburg
Coqiiltlum Ib Bituuted in tho Vancouver metropolitan district on tho
mam line of the Canadian Pacilic. Tho Grand Trunk Pacitic is alBo buying land for terminals in this vicinity, and other transcontinental railways are buying rlght-of-wnyi This, added to thc fact that, Coquitiam is a
deep-water port, moaiiB thnt manufacturers locating bore will have the advantage  ol  the  cheapest  transportation  rates,  both  by  rail and  Water.
Two big power companies are developing enormous electric energy
near here and their power linos pass through the munucipality. This
means electric light and power competitive rates, and in conjunction
with cheap sites and trackage explains the fact that already over fitty
applications have come in from manufacturers for factory and mill sites.

Obey That Impulse
Wait Not Another Minute
Only a tew mouths ago was Coquitiam born an.l its lots thrown on
thc market to make people rich. We knew of these developments lietorc tbe
general public hnd heard ev.n a rumor. We bought land at farm land
prices right in thc centre of activity Murk that—tbc centre of activity,
right wlnre all thc industries and railways are coming. We arc offering
these lots for thc first time, with no profits added to the price, except
one moderate legitimate profit of our own. Don't buy lots that have al
ready been turned over or priOs advanced with every announcement of
new development, when you enn get inside lota at Brat pricv. There have
been millions — wc arc tnlking conservatively—made In Coquitiam already. One Brandon, Man., lady made |4n,000 there, and bas rr invested
both  principal and profit  In  Coqmt-lam.
One lot started a low months ago at $1(100, payable quarter cash,
is now held for a higher price than IStsiti by a shrewd business man ol
Victoria, B. C. Dozens ol low-salaried tradesmen and clerks ot Vancouver, New Westminster and Coquitiam itself-thoee who know wbat'B going
on, and are right on the scene of activity—have invested every cent they
can beg, borrow or steal in Coquitiam, and many of them bave made as
high aa 100 to 1000 per cent on their original investment there. Over $50,-
000 of our property has lieen reserved by Coquitiam residents? and" J5
lots have licen sold In a bunch to the representative of an American railway system, said to be for city offices. We know everything that It le
possible to  know  abort Coquitiam.
We unhesitatingly say that it is the belggcst real estate money-maker

London, March U0— Although thc
lirst TOtM taken among tbc niiuers
of Lancashire on the question, "Aro
you iu favor of resuming work pending tbe settlement of thc imn.mum
rate ol wages in tbe various grades
by thc district board to be appointed
under thc Coal Mine Minimum Wage
Act," show that a majority of tho
men there are opposed to returning to
work until the district hoards buvs
lixed the minimum wages, there are
indications throughout tbc rest of
thc country which show nn increas -
ing desire ou thc part of thc miners
to return to thc pits.
There is considerable reluctance,
however, umoug the colliers to take
any definite step until thc result of
tbe ballot ot the miners, ol which
there seems to be little doubt is definitely known. Practically all the
leaders arc advising the miners that
nothing will be gained by remaining
Mr. Thomas Asbton, secretary ul
the Miners' Federation, issued a slut,
ment lasl night counselling the mui-
ers lo resume work without waiting
tor thc district boards to adjust the
minimum wage, aud his advice probably will have greater influence on
thc ballot than that ol uny other
Thc ouly stumbling block in tho
way of a speedy termination ol the
-tnke seems to be the attitude ot iho
ourtace men who still bave some
I grievances unsatisfied. Their national federation  issued  a  manifesto yen-
Painter, Paper Hanger, Decorater
RevelBtoke, B C.
terday   to all   its  branches tj the et-
Mirror Making and re-Silvering  feet that there must In no resumption
Glass Cutting and Boring of  work  by any sect.,... ol the federa-
GlaBS   Frosting and  Staining       tion unless the owners have conce-ind
Picture Framing,  etc. their  demands.   It   is   believed,   how-
PriceS Reserved. eTer,  that this dispute will  be settled
—— before  the result of the geueral  bai -
loting is aunounced.
Mr. Ashton's statement is consider
ed to bc of great importance liecauso
it wus professedly issued with a view-
to counteracting tbe advice of some
ol tbc leaders that thc miners should
not resumu work until the wages
board have filed the minimum in
every district. Mr. Ashton regards
this advice as very injudicious, declaring that some of the boards might
fix the rates in u fortnight, while
others might occupy several weeks in
so doing, tie thinks it advisable that
all tho miners resume work simul -
tuneously, so that every district may
bc on an equal footing.
A number of the South Walee leaders also arc now counselling an immediate resumption of work, and according to the latest indications the
men will return to the mines by
Thursday and work through the Eastertide, already having had mors of
a holiday than they require.
In fact moderate views are gaining
tho ascendancy in the question concerning the settlement of the strike,
and influential labor leaders are join
ing in the denunciation of syndical -
ism and advising the men loyally to
accept tbe wage bill. William Brace.
William Hnrvey and Thomas Ilich-
ards, all prominent mining represen •
tntives in parliament, have issued
statements similar in purport to that
Ol  Mr.  Asbton.
There were further additions in the
ranks of the miners resuming woik
in Scotland, but an increaso of 20,000
In tbe unemployed in the other trades
who were fore'd out of work by reason of a shortage of coal. There was
however,  no recurrence of disorder.
Oood feeling prevails between the
troops and thc strikers. A special Instance of tbis is shown by the fact
that at Cannock, in Staffordshire the
soldiers and strikers played n match
itame ol football.
