Columbia River Great Traffic Artery.—Canadian Grain and
Timber Through Revelstoke to Pacific Ocean.—Government Spending $4,000,000 Improving Navigation on
World's Seventh Largest River.—Eight Foot Channel
Established to Priest Rapids, 407 Miles from Portland.
At the preseut rate of progress the
tviilo Canal, now being built between
the foot of Tho Dalles Rapids and the
head of (Vlilo Falls, on the Columbia
will be completed in the Fall of 1914.
The object of the canal is to over -
tome the natural obstructions on the
Oolumbia at this point, as these rapids and thc falls are the only barriers
to navigation on the river from the
Pacilic ocean to Priest Rapids, ou the
Columbia a distance of 407 miles and
to Lewiston, Idaho, on the Suak" ■
river, a distance of 47U miles. Completion, in lS'Jt'e, of the Cascade Canul
removed the only obstruction west of
The Dalles Rapids.
Clans for the canal and locks at Ce- {
lllo were adopted by Congress in 1902
These plans are now being carried out
They provide for a canal eight and a
half mile's in length, having a width
of 65 feet and a depth of eight feet at
low wator. As the fall between Celilo
and Hig Kddy is Sl feet at low water.
there will he live loks in all, two
loeks having a lit o: 35 feel ea.'h,
and one lo> k with a lift of 11 to IS
feet, depending upon the stage of the
river. In addition to these locks there
will be two additional locks, one at
Celilo and one at Ten Mile Rapid-.
These la-t two luck* will be used only at high water stages of theriver.
A: low water the gates will be open
ami the Io k- will form a part of the
canal. At low water bhsre will be
seven miles nf open canal from Celilo
to the h i i nf The Dalles Rapids and
all th !••! a.e will be done in the
lower seven and a half miles.
The canal will be lined with concrete
where it passes through the sand and
gravel, but no lining will be necessary
where it passes through -olid rock.
'l'li ■ lock u ■ icavated in solid rock
and will be lined with concrete. The
excavation lor the lower lock chamb-
ei nf the tandem locks at Big Eddy,
I.i a depth of 76 leet. The upper cha-
mb i . -.- il mi will have a depth of
•i.i lest. The lock gates will be constructed ol ''I The lower gates in
the tandem lock- will be 50 (eel high.

The lirsl work in ronneettOO with the
canal began ill 1901 and consisted ol
widening and deepening the Oolumbia
Unci at Three Mile Rapids, about 1
mile below i:' ■ .' .squired even yean to complete thl improvement, which Involved the removal of
(."..Min ruble- vi.rde of solid rock rr.'f<
ni I 'horn line, much of which «n« un
iler   water.   The   flrd   actual  COD lW
linn woii. wa   begun   n Octobet 1905,
when contractors started wort at
Celilo on one-half mile of canal, which
included the Celilo locks and boat bas
in. This project alone cost approximately $300,000. The small amount of
funds available at the time prevented
the letting of a larger contract. This
work was particularly important on
a. count of th" river wall of thc boat
lasin. Th.' wall has a height of 52
feet above its foundation at the -deepest pla<v aud ha- a total length of
about 1500 feet. The Winter season of
190u was particularly favorable for
work and the foundation of thc wall
was placed without interference by
Winter freshets or severe weather.
In  1907 Congress appropriated $100-
000 for con:inning the contract work,
and authorized contracts lo the extent of $000,080. In the following year
a second contract for the construction
of about three miles of canal was let
This section wa< built in .-o'fd rock,
and gravel, excavation and involved
the removal ol about 350,000 cubic
yards of solid rock and 400,000 cubic
yards of sand and gravel. In Juu •,
1910, Congress appropriated $600,000,
for continuing the work with a view
of its completion in six years. No
mention of contracts was made. It
was th"n decided by the United States engineers to discontinue the contract work and construct the canal
by hired labor. Authority was granted on June 7, 1910, and the work of
assembling the necessary plant began
at once. By the middle of July, 1910
the actual excavation of tandem locks
hud be -n begun and in less than three
months p force of several hundred nv u
and necessary plan) wa- at work.
Four >team shovels and a large land
dredge, with necessary locomotives &
cars, were purchased an.I a concrete
plant with a capacity of 300 cubic yds
daily was constructed. There is now
( n tbe ground nnd in use a plant val-
t ed at over $200.(100.
From Juiy 1910, io July 1911, the
Work waa pushed vigorously as Con-
eTess appropriated $t;oo,000 in February, 1911. In Spetember 1911, it wa-
necessary tee reduce the force to presenl Ihe work being dosed down by
lack of funds. Owing io d-'lay in securing addition appropriations th-
work was ci.. 1 down on May l. 1912
and wa- not again resumed until July
25 ol ihe' Bame ye ir, whi a $700,1 was
appropriated,   Much progress has i n
made incc 'lm ahout 700 mn being

this action, on thc part  of the   Canadian authorities
It is believed that the time is not
far distant, whan a large proportion
of this western wheat will have to
End its way into fhe world markets
via the Pacific Coast and the Panama
Canal. The parties behind tho Colum
l.ia River Waterways Improvement
schemes in both countries, believe that
the cheapest way to get the wheat
and all other bulky Canadian traffic
to the sea board will be via Revel
stoke and th'nce by water down the
Columbia River  to Portland,  Oregon.
It is pointed out thai Portland has
for years been a great wheat shipping
port, and that there exist at the Ore
£,on seaport every facility, for i opinj
with grain shipments, whilst these facilities have been greatly extended
with the special purpose of bidding for
Panama Canal traffic Tha Port of
Vancouver has *o far made no serious
attempt to either provide elevators or
prepare additional dockage or wharf-
ege accommodation in readiness for
wheat shipments; the route via the
Columbia River from Revclstoie t«.
Portland, is the most direct, econom-
iial, and practicable artery for this
great volume of tratlic, ii is estimated
that a saving of at least five cents per
bushel is in-favor ol the Portland via
Revelstoke and the Columbia, as com
pared with carrying the grain thru'
by rail to ihe Pacific ocean at Van-
e Oliver, B. C.
The report of th • engineers who
were appointed io investigate the
possibilities of tho Columbiu River wa
leeway, has not yet been presented,
but It is understood to be entirely fa-
\ o: alile to the project, and will be so
encouraging indeed, as must compel
the Dominion government to move in
the matter. Thc Canadian authorities
u ied not be afraid of spending a little
money on the "Columbia," thc seventh largest river in the world, in order to make sanv navigable to the International Boundary; already th" U.
S. Government have -pent over fo.ir
millions of dollar- In rendering some
I'.'i miles of the same nvcr on their
side e.f the line, available toshipping,
and this work is constantly being
pushed ahead  and extended.
Today there is a very considerable
lommercial shipping along the Colum
bia river, and the economic geography
of the Northwest, makes it absolutely

until May or June.
Mr. Bowman, of Huron, stated that
under tlf present inspection law it
was possible for tho shipper to take
a barrel ot apples marked rejected by
the inspector and sell that barrel to
any retail dealer in the district. The
retailer could put those on sale and
the public had no means ol finding
out whether Ihe apples wero third or
fourth class quality or not.
Mr. Rnddick said that this eould not
be denied. Chairman Sexsmith asked
for an explanation of tho report that
last fall farmers sold thoir apples on
the tree for 75 cents a ba.rel, while
the consumer in the wesl paid as high
its $5 and over.
Mr. Ruddlck said he believed the
1 rice averaged from $1 to $1.50 a
barrel on the tree.
"Vou bave been misinformed," said
.1. K. Armstrong of l.ambton. "Thai
is away above the figure. Mr. Rud-
iliek lias not been informed of conditions. We have been, encouraging the
farmers to Improve. Dut wo do not
seem to be able to get our own market or any outside market."
Mr. Thornton of Durham, said that
in bis district many apples had rot-
led for lack of a market.
Mr. Ru Ulii'k calculated the cost af
laying down, a barrel to the consumer
in Wiinipeg as follows: (Ine dollar a
barrel for the apples off lite tree; 45
cents for (he barrel; 17 cents abarrel
for picking and packing, 10 cents for
commission to the buyer; 80 cents for
freight to Winnipeg; 12 cents to the
broker on a five cent basis; 50 cents
to the retailer; making a total cost
to the consumer of $3.25 a barrel.
"We don't get them for anything
like that figure," said a voice from
the  West.

as possible in the centre of that great
section of Uritish Columbia extending
for a length ol ;ij() miles between the
Crow's Nest und B.C. Southern rail -
way     systems    to tho south and the
routtt of the    Grand     Trunk Pacific
and Canadian  Norlhcrn railways     to
the north
Prettily situated on the Columbia
River where it is crossed by the main
line of the Canadian Pacilic Railwny,
It i.s also the junction with the main
lino of the Arrowhead and Kootenay
Railway, whieh connects with the palatial steamers of the C.P.R. on the
Arrow Lakes, and with tho B.C. Southern, Columbia and Western, Crow's
Nest Pass and Great Northern Railway systems to  (he south.
As the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and Canadian Nonhern
railways to the north proceeds, and
these systems become extended into
(he Canoe River valley and the territory tributary to tho Big Bend of the
Columbia, they must seek connections
with Ihe south, and Reve'stoke will be
the point of junction of (he railway
systems of the future with those of
today as Ihey traverse the great valleys which radiate cast and west,
north and south from this city as
their common centre.
While Revelstoke thus occupies an
exceptionally strong position as a
traffic emporium, its outlook is still
brighter fiom an industrial aud manufacturing point of view. There are
1,000 miles of timber on the Columbia
River and its tributaries north of the
city. The expenditure involved in the
conversion ol this timber into a marketable product will not fall far short
of »275,OC0,00O.
Water power is plentiful in the vicin
ity, the city having harnessed one
stream to a capacity of 1,800 horse
power, which is offered for industrial
purposes at low rates.
