WASHINGTON  ALARMED.
Scat lie, Doc. ID—Ottioiul announce •
menl of the action of the Canadian
government prohibiting immigrants of
all nations, temporarily, frnm entering
British Columbia has not yet lweu received at the local immigration otlices.
Commissioner Henry M. White, wheu
apprised of its nature this morning ex-

tlie river and it is the opinion of ' the
engineers ou the work that in the
next four years the Columbia River
will be made navigable, and that tho
largest part of the wheat trade from
the western prairies will go thut way have
to the foreign markett.
The above is especially gratifying to
Revelstoke, where a number of residents kave for long Bought lo obtain
lecognition of the feasibility of th.'
i_rcat grain route scheme. The history
of that movement is well known locally, for ii has been given the ulmost
publicity possible, in the. columns of
the "Mail-Herald," and the various
phases uf the project havo been fully
ilis, us-.'il in editorials and special ancles.
Now that the outside world is coming to be ofa more favorable opinion
towards the project, as the' result oi the
work already accomplished by the survey parties, Ll behoves the people of
Rev elstoke to infuse now life and
energy into all ippertaining to the sub
ject which can bc handled locally, and
to see to it that the great aim of „
great scheme fraught with untold possibilities to this di-trict, the ...rain
growing centres, and indeed the whole
country, uiv n,.t obscured or lost Bight
of on any pretext whatever. Ijeast of
all should there be allowed to arise
danger of the project being delayed ow
ing to lack of enthusiasm or interest
on the part of the people of Rovelstoke
The "Mail Mcrnld'' haB done its utmost to obtain 'general recognition of
this project. Despite ihe doubts of a
few the engineers wero pul to work to

The campaign was one of the hottest
which British Columbia has s.oen tor
seme years. The Liberals had a strong
leal man as their candidate and he
was supported by the leaders of that
1 arty. What capital possible was made
of the fact that Mr. Foster was not a
resident of the constituency while the
government was attacked from every
siile and the Liberal policy expounded.
Mr. Foster's victory, unde'i such circumstances i-tua ,'pccial degree a victory for the government.
Of Mr, Foster, the new member, it

section of BritiBh Columbia. During
the years of his residence at Revel -

Whether or not ther.' is anything in

ultimate advancement to the iron*,

looked forward to."

.MY BRAVE CARLO.
It was a bright morning in May and
the children were getting baskets, buckets and shovels ready for thc picnic,
whieh was to be held on thc hunk of
the' Columbia river u. short distance
below the new wharf, where thc water
when it goes down leaves a large pond
in tli«* sand.
The children had already arrived and
were playing in the sand wit.li their
buckets anil  shovels.
At 3:15p.m. the children all assembled tor ior lunch under a pine tree, hul
little Mary  Was  missing.
Before we Iuui time to wonder where
she hud gone. Carlo, thc dog, came
running up to rae and barked aud then
ran away again. I followed him und
as I gained the summit of thc hill and
looked, I saw little- Mary on ■, ruft
that was tied to a tree on ihe shore,
but the end of it stretched out into iho
water.
I .shouted to her to come to nic,and
a^ she started to ' ome oil the raft her
foot -lipped, and sh.' fell into tho
mighty Columbia, one of the great
rivers of lhe world, where few people
escape when ihey fall iu.

who had started before me saw her rise
and plunged in after her. Tne brave

RAILWAY RATES
B.C.'s Position
Ottawa, Der. 11.—Argument on behalf of British Columbia was begun
before the Railway Commissioa yesterday afternoon by Mr. L. G. Me-
l'killips, K.C., counsel for the province.
Mr. McPhillips pointed out that he
was supplementing the arguments
formerly submitted by his predecessor,
Mr. Macdonald. So far as British Columbia wns concerned, they had no
reason to be unfriendly to tho C.P.R.,
but still British Columbia's interests
had to b<' considered.
Referring to the land grants given to
tho C.P.R. he contended that they
must be roisidercd, not at their value
when given, but when sold by the com
pony. The question of expenditure on
the tunnel through the Selkirk range
"•hould be consider! by the board. It
was being built on the expectation by
the company of future profits to como.
The enquiry was founded on section 77 of thc Railway Act whioh dealt
with discrimination. The' onus of justifying discrimination had been accepted by   the  railways.   How,  he  asked,
had  they discharged it?
CROWS'  NEST  LINE.
British Columbia, he said, had lieen
charged with the losses on the Crows
Nest Pass Railway. This had been
built, not as a branch line, but as a
main line; not for British Columbiu
at all,  but for the other provinces.
Mr. McPhillips contended that the
charging up of terminal expenses to
British Columbia was an injustice to
that province.
The complete transfer of goods from
the steamer to the car Was charged to
British Columbia.
Chairman Draytoa: "it is an added
burden oi about $ 1 a ton, I should
say.*'
Leased lines were also in. luded in
the compilation of figures, These
were not part of the C.P.R., and
should not be cons'idered. Ho further coniended that there was no
evidence to show that it cosl more to
haul iu British Columbia than in lhe
other provinces. Even if it did, aud
that was generally admitted, there
was no evidence or argument to justify the higher rates.
Mr. McPhillips then submitted fig -
ures prepared by Mr. Caldcrhead, the
British Columbia expert, to show that
ihere was u greater diversity of traffic
in British Columbia ihan in tho
prairie provinces, a greater density of
population per mile of road; a greater
amount of capital invested in manufactures; more industrial concerns,
while class and commodity rates were
much higher in British Columbiu
than in the neighboring provinces.

where the Hindu problem has recently

ioi there can   be  little doubt lhal   this

words ol Premier McBride: "The order

The Toronto lilolte, discussing the
entry of Hindus into Cun ida says:
The issue is between those who wish
io exploit cheap labor and establish a
society in which a different race will
serve the pari of ,t peasantry in making
fortunes for their employers, and those
who wish an approach towards equality iu opportunity, in racial stamina.
and in material comforts, It is time
io decide between a while man's country and a country ,,f racial exploitation. It would be, perhaps, as hard to
justify the exclusion of the Hindu from
America as to justify thc invasion ami

A citirrn of the world wishing to spend a holiday at
Banff, in the heart of the Western Canadian Rockies or to
make a business journey ulong the lines of the Canadian
Pacitic Hallway rents his sleeping car berth, boards the train,
lives and eats in luxurious surroundings while being whirled
across the continent and has little idea of the vastness of the
'•nterprise upon which he bestows his patronage nor of the
tremendous system which must be maintained in order that
he and ot! ers, likewise-minded, may travel in such safety,
comfort anfi luxury.
For im tance he goes to bed and does not know that an
army of men four thousand strong is employed by that
Dining and Sleeping Car Department. He is not aware that
he sam impany could, within five days, transport an army
of thirty t ousand people from Vancouver to Halifax, giving
each a sleeping berth and supplying ninety thousand meals
■i day, oi practically half a million on the five day journey
across the continent. Again, he Joes not realize that, if the
dining and sleeping cars of the Canadian Pacific Railway
were made up into a single tram with a locomotive stationed
at intervals ten coaches apart, that that train would bc
fourteen miles long. To man this city on wheels would
require an amy of three thousand dining and sleeping car
attendants with several hundred additional men at terminals
to handle supplies for them. This is exclusive of tho thousand men who would be operating the train in the capaci'y
nf biakemen, conductors, firemen and engineers, a total
aboard in all of 34,000 people.
TAKING CARE OF THE PUBLIC
It  would   take  a  great  deal  of  space  to  tell  bow  the
Canadian   Pacific   Railway   takes  care  of  that   public   which
I jejtionizes  its  lines  and  how  also   it  takes  care  of   those
employees whose duty  t is to minister to the comfort of that
public.   Yet the C. P. R. has tuken many steps in that direction  and  it  is  safe  to  say  that  in  a* dozen  particulars it
stands ahead of any road on the continent when it comes to
I treating its dining and sleeping car employees humanely* and
! sanely.    These men are as desirable a class of public servant
ss can be found in any privat   house from the point of view
[of efficiency,  personal  cleanliness and  freedom  from danger
I of spreading disease.   The company is as considerate of its
[men as it is of the geneial public, and it is fully aware that
such a course is simple "good business."
Certainly the most colossal task that presents itself
i to the C. P. R. is that of provisioning its dining cars to
• •I'd the hungry multitudes who cross their thresholds each
meal hour. It is estimated that in the summer season the
C. P. R stives on an average twenty thousand meals a day
on its car«. For many years the company has been grappling with the problem of supplying thii enormous demand
,n a way tnat would insure to the general public absolutely
dean and perfectly wholesome meals and only now has the
umpany come to believe that it has the situation com-
[pletely In hand.
The fiist pioblrm that presented 'tself was to have
^secure a realh assured and permanent source of supply. To
i ittsin this and, incidentally, to show farmers in various dis-
icts thc possibilities of their l„inl. when scientifically
worked, demonstration farms were started throughout the
|Doiinnion. These supply absolutely fresh provisions to the
rhain of co'mmissiary stores stretching .cross tho continent
lind give tic Canadian Pacilic Riilway the assurance of a
[permanent supply .it cost prices, fn this an absolutely radical
[departure was made in that thc C. P. R. actually owns
'snd operates the faims which supply it with provisions.
The  advantage of  this is  not  far  to  seek.    Fresh  milk
land cream  vvill  soon  be secured  in  whatever quantities are
Ideslred.    A sufficiently large number cf poultry can be kept
o supply a"  requirements for table fowl and eggs.    To in-
It'jre freshness in the eggs used un dining cats the product is
gathered from the nest (all eggs are non-fertile by the way)
Istamped   with   the   date,   .ind   then   packed   in   cartons   and
Era led   for  delivery   to  commissary  stores,     Milk  and   cream
Lie not handled in bulk.   After being thoroughly pasteurized
the   product"   are   placed   tn   scaled   bottles   and   these   are

INTERIOR    Of   DINIMC   CAR
One really obstinate problem has confronted the Canadian
Pacific and that has been th: supplying of fresh bread sad
pastry to its patrons—bread and pastry of such a quality
that the shield and beaver trademark would be its guarantee.
Many experiments have been tried but that degree of success desired by the company is only now being attained.
Final upon all plans comes the announcement on this year's
appropriation list to the effect that the company will la-
stall a chain of modern bakeshops at such terminal points
between Halifax and Vancouver as would insure a complete
re-stocking of dining cars with fresh bread, cakes and pastry
every fifteen hours. Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Moos*
Jaw, Calgary and Vancouver are to have such railrc-'1 bakeshops as will several other points not yet definitely decided
upon
The care of meats, milks, vegetables and perishable good*
for the twenty thousand people who must be fed daily by
this one railway requires most elaborate refrigerator plants.
All refrigeration is done artificially and thc scientifically
perfect degree of coldness is maintained to preserve tha goods
ar.d so to maintain highest quality.
A MODERN SCIENCE
Modern medical science, both preventive and rtrrative has
reduced itself to practically one only science—bacteriology—
with thc allied art of preventing disease bugs from finding
lodgment in any place that comes in contact with humaa
beinfj, more particularly to keep all human food free from
expor.uri to these germs.
Recognizing this the Canadian Pac :ic Railway has
worked out an elaborate system uf individual service, rodna-
mg the handling of food to a minimum All bread, c*'-«^
pastry, p*e, puddings, etc., are prepared in individual orders]
in fact this system fi extended to cover all possible service;
even ice cream, which is made under moit sanitary condition, is prepared in -ndividual portions, each portion wrapped
in special case to prevent handling.
ITS FIRST  CARE
One of  the  fust  caies  of  the  Canadian   Pacific  Railway
is to see  that  all  It!  employees arc  physically healthy aad
,-le;'n and to this end it has been deemed expedient to establish  a  chain of  home!  for  the dining anu   deeping car men
ovei  the enl tl continent.    The C. P. R. :s the only railroad
corporation   today   which   provides   this   class   of   employees
with tree lodgment and bed when away from home.    At all
large   terminal!   suih   as   Toronto,   Winnipc;;,   Moose   Jaw
Calgary   and   Vancouver   these  dining   car   and   sleeping  car
eei aie housed hy the company.    \i establishing tnia
thc   management   had   one   main   ide.i   in   view.     It
would be able to p.ive the general public  the assurance that
employee had  a  physique  free fiom  disease,  because
,11  arc  subjected   to  a  periodic  medical  examination, and  it
. ould it elf  then  be in a  position to aiaome responsibility
[0i   the deanllneii of employees.    Undei  the system that
irevaill  <n  the C.  P.  R.  it   is  impossible  for  a dining  or
i.  plug      •   imployee to go out on a  run, as it is called,
e  firsl  having t.tkui a bath .md gotten his clothes
ewly cl  tfltd t   d pressed, free of any cost to the employe*.

REDISTRIBUTION
Interesting Statistics
(Ottawa Journal)
One cannot but feel a certain amount of sympi.tliy with the Maritime
provinces whi.-h every decade, see their
representation iu the hou.e-e of commons dwindling. Ontario has uluo sim
'ilarily suffered during the last 20 years
Previous to 1901 her representation in
the house of commons was 22, while in
the present parliament it is only 80.
There is this to be said with regard to
a readjustment of representation to restore to the Maritime provinces the
number of members they had at Confederation, that once the door is open-
iil there will be no limit to request for
changes, The principle of leprcsenta-
tion hy population seems to be a fair
one, much us it may affect little prov-
inceslike Prince Bdward Island.   If the
eastern   provinces   wei-e given   increased
repceseutation, and tlie Confederation
basis restored, then, depend upon it,
our Quebec friends would naturally insist upon it larger numlier of members,
astli.it province constitutes the unit
of representation at the present time.
It is a story that cannot be retold too
often that as B.r>, the number of members whicli Quebec has in thc house oi
commons, divides into the population
ot Quebec the quotient becomes the unit of representation for all the other
provinces. Thus at the last census the
population of Quebec was 2,002,712,
which divid-d by the unit number of 65
gives a quotient of :S0,8U. All the oth- J
er provinces will have as many mem - j
bers as 30,811 divides into the total of I
their      respective    populations.        For |
comparative purposes the representation ofthe house of commons     as    ati
present, and'as it will be under redistribution is given:

No musical-mechanical triumph has approached this remarkable invention of Edison. The new composition
of which it is made catches and holds the natural beauty
of tone of the world's greatest singers, orchestras and bands,
and holds it after you have played it over 3,000 times.
The Blue Amberol is a perpetual, practically unbreakable
record that reproduces in an
amazing way the art of the performers. Don't miss the opportunity lo hear il played at some

'WE CLEAN THE TOWN"
Totals   2*21 *_>34
From the foregoing figures ii will be
observed thai Ontario will lose four
members, Nova Scotia two, New Bruns
wick two, and Prime Edward one,
while Manitoba will irain flve, British
Columbia six, Saskatchewan *ix and
Alberta five. It id a fact not generally known that Saskatchewan in point.
ot population is now the third largest
province of the Dominion. West ,,f the
Great Lakes will send 60 representatives to the next parliament,as ionipar-
eel with 3'J in the present. These figures indicate in a striking manner the
western  tendency of  population.
But apart from the redistribution of
seats in the house of commons, there
is another measure of equally great
importance affecting representation in
the senate. Af present there are 87
members in the upper house, arranged
wiih the exception of the weet, in three
groups of 24 each. The Maritime' pro-
\im-cs collectively semi 24, 10 each
from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick
and four from Prinoe Edward island ;
Quebec has 21 senator- and Ontario
the same. In the west, however, conditions are diflerent, Manitoba and
Saskatchewan have tour senators eaoh
while Britt-h Columbia has only thi-ec
a total of 15 from the west, it is proposed to constitute another group of
21 senators from west oi tho Great
Lakes, by Increasing the numlier of
representatives in the upper house for
each of the four western provineos to
six. How long thi- arrangement will
lasl Ume will only tell. It jg hazily
likely, if tbe principle of rcpiexentntion
hy population is to oontinue to prevail
in ihi- country, that Manitoba nnd
the other western provinoes with larger populations thnn Nova Scotia end
New Brunswick, will be Miti-fied with
-iii illei representations in the senate,
