ENGINEERS ARE tATALISTS
They Run Day fitter Day With
Their Lives in Their Hands
Why -.houlil tlie locomotive engineer
be a fatalist?
I have been askeil the question time
and again, says a writer in the Chicago Tribune. There i* only one answer for the question. That is lor tho
reason that everything in tho life of
tho engineer points lo the necessity
fur philosophy if the engineer is tu
pursue his liuo of work with a steady
hand nnil nerve.
Ordinarily when a layman st anils beside a great stationary ougiuo working under heavy pressure ho is
startled at iti power. In the hot
close atmosphere of the machinery
roniii, filled with sliding pistons, grout
Byiug wheels and rumbling shafts
whirliug and flying overhead, ho l«"
Kins lo appreciate the latent power
ilmi iu encompaaBed within iti mechanism. If In- wore to stop lo consider lhal tlm locomotive ongine is
mounted to travel at lift}-. Bixty or
Kovonly miles an hour, whilo at tho
-ami' linn' operating under a a loam
pi-ossuro ol -"J" pounds t" 2-10 pounds
to every square inch ol boiler surface
hi' may got some idea ol tho position
of lhe engine driver who holds tho
throttle. Layman that ho
is In-       feels hii     insignili -
ounce as compared lo tho giant boiler
which ii anchored fast lo it- foundn -
lion of stone, stool and cement far lie-
low the surface. If lhe design of that
boiler were to travel a mile a minute
whilo lie was looking on his sense of
iii power and insecurity would be
greatly exaggoruted,
Anything that might interfere with
the physical (light of Jiii great boiler
through space is nt , onco a double
menace t" the engineer, lie ii responsible for everything in the operation
of ihis huge boiler, while in its working its whole foundation changes with
every fraction of a second marked oil'
by his watch. Not the ben stretch of
track on his divisiou is proved und
Bufo. An open switch, a flaw iu a rail,
a careless topograph operator, a sud -
den washout of bridge or culvert—anyone of these il<ni(s may send the engine driver into eternity without a
moment's warning.
It may be that Ids engine i- n type
having a driving rod plunging up and
down and forward and back squarely
tinder the seat which lie must occupy-
in holding the throttle hour after
hour. Tlie -mapping of a .rank pin on
a great driver may send tin- flying
steel liar crashing up through the engineer's -^i.-at and mean death
in an inilunt.
Or Hying in u mile u minute and
having to lake for granted a greal
deal concerning  ihe condition of     tht-
water in the boiler tho menace of the
superheated steam itself may bo something w Inch ho .'an only lake for
granted, while he turns blindly to Iiii
luok.
Feeding water into tho locomotive
boiler through automatic injectors
while holding a fast schedule leaves
the engineer dependent upon tlieir workings, They may work or thoy nmy
fail.
Low water in a boiler is one of the
greatest dangers that confront tlio
engineer, and if the condition shall
escape his attention for any roason
and the bulking injectors Buddonly
pimip cold water lo     the superhoatcd
surfaces,   lho  likelihood ol xplosion
menaces him-
What a locomotive boiler exploding
cannot and may nol do never has lieen
determined. A low weeks au'o on ono
of tho moiiulain divisions of the Haiti-
moro k Ohio railroad in West Virginia the boilor of. a great froight engine
was pulling in on n sidetrack,  li  loro
nwny from  tl ngino  mountings  and
jumped 100 foot clear ol a freight car
near hy. Striking tlio ground lho boiler i"i'- again tor 300 foot and fell into
a farmyard, lifting a third time nnd
clearing tho farmhouse into an orchard 500 fool From tho ruins of the locomotive annul.: whioh both onginoor
and fireman lay dead.
Holding ilu- llnoltli- blindlj and
blindly trusting to "luck" lhe engineer moves out upon his run his life in
hii hntidi. Any um' of a dozen conditions may mean death. lie has no
control over any of thorn. I" a threatened hend-on collision ho ii at sueh a
heart  and moving at  such sp I us lo
make jumping suicidal.
His only resource is fatalism, Ilo
will nol  "gel it" iiii 5.1— timo eomes."

PRESENT CAPACITY OF MILLS. 25.000 LBS. OF PAPER PER DAY
We are pleased to announce that our big plant at Port Mellon, with a daily capacity ol 25,000 lbs. ol paper,
is now in operation, and in order to provide for additional work of the company, we now offer for subscjiption
|QQ OOO SHARES °f l':e Preference Stock of the Corporation in Blocks of 100 Shares,
at $1,00 per share. Payments: 15 per cent, on application; 15 per cent, in 30 days; balance, 10 per cent, per
month.
The Preference Stock is entitled to an annual preferential dividend of 7 per cent., but unlimited as to
further dividends. That is. after 7 per cent, has been paid on the outstanding preference and ordinary, both
stocks thereafter participate equally. We are confident that this stock will pay from 25 to 40 per cent, annual
dividends.
THE   COMPANY   HAS   RECENTLY   purchased the entire assets of the
Western Ca lada Wood Pulp and Paper Company, of Victoria, consisting of 55,699 acres of limber land at Quat«
sino Sound, northern part of Vancouver Island, foreshore rights; JO.ooo-inch water record; railway charter; saw
mill, etc.. and we are anxious to proceed as soon as possible witli the election ol a mechanical pulp mill, and
instill another paper machine, so as to increase the captcity "I the mi.ll to 100,000 lbs, of pulp per day. We
are now manufacturing butchers manila, building and roofing paper, Nos, 1 and 2 manila, drab and colored
fibre.    Our plan is to have the new machine operate exclusively on newspaper,
The Present Estimated Value of the company's assets is over $700,000
$700,000, and in offering the Preference stock of the corporation for subscription we do so with a feeling that it
is the besi dividend-paying stock ever offered in Western Canada. A.s a matter of fact it is not often that one has
the opportunity of securing a preferential stock in an est iblished concern. We are positive that inside two years
the stock of the company will be selling at three times it i present price.
The public are cordially invited to visit Port Mellon and view the mill in operation.

STATE OF BRITAIN
As Seen by the President ot the
Canadian Bank ot Commerce
Mr. Byron IC, Walkor, Presidoal     of
tin* Oanadiun  Hank of Conimovco,  1ms
L'oturtjod from u trip to tho «'l*i country firmly convinced     Lhat  it' Britain
does  not deul  immediately with      the
problem of  bur unemployed she     will
rapidly filter upon     her decuy aa     ;t
great nulion.   Mr. Walker believes that
this problem  is much mure critical in
Britain  than in     any othoi*  buropoan
ruuntry,     becuuso, ho says,  there     i.s j
not iho vigorous countrybrod popula- \
tion   in   Britain   that   there  is   in tit hor I
European     countries.*    Ins toad,   said :
Mr.  Walkor, in an interview  with   tho]
Globe, in  Kimlniul we seo county      af-
ter county     given over     to     grazing ■
with vory little intousivo fanning, and |
the profits  of growing foodstutfs   for ]
ling lish consumption  given  largely  to
thoso of other countries,  while couut-
less   Knglitsh     city   bred    peoplo  want
food and work.
Terrible Congestion.
"Now the result of ihis and other
causes," Mr. Walker continued, "is
that while there must be congestion
wherever peoploat'O crowded as thoy
aro in Kuiupo, there is nowhere such
terrible congestion and vast pauper -
ism as in Kngland. Sueh congestion
is practically always accompanied by
drink and physical degradation, and
in, Britain the extent »if both the drinking and the physical aud moral degradation is appalling. I musl, however, say tliat one of the most intelligent Liberals known to me denies that
conditions are worse in Kngland than
in Germany, and claims that there is
less distress than some years ugo. But
whether worse or bettor than a few
years ago, the condition must be faced if England is to endure.''
Only  a  Partial  Step.
The British Government's scheme of
old ago pensions Mr. Walker regarded
as beginning at the wrong oud, because he hold that it was only by taking care of the newly born and guarding tbem from pauperism, drink and
degradation that hope for tho future
could be entertained. But old ago
pensions should bo regarded as only a
partial  stop,  and  Mr.   Walker      hoped
that both Liberal and Conservative
parties would not rest unlil some solution of the problem had been found.
A Most Serious Problem,
"But nearly all government pro -
blems are," ho aaid, "in the last analysis problems of finance, and, while
Britain is one of the riohent countries
in the world and ono of the most in-
telligeni and willing in tho matter of
bearing taxation, this ia one of tInmost serious problems financially that
any British Government bus boon called upon to face. And it comes at a
time when a large part of the people
aro culling for Lhe greatly increased
increased oui lay on thn navy, which,
if met by tho Liberal party in tho
measure domandodj will create another
problem in finance    "f great  magni -
tilde..
The Need to Build Ships,
Among the Liberals there aro mon
apparently free from political bia., who
deny that theru is any roason to foar
war with Germany, and, ol course,
the overwhelming body of ilu- people
do no I bo the i about ii, bocause the
iiwin in ihe it root rarely ovor eeK to
understand such questions, lb* will
back bia government when war has
beeu declared, hut be does noi appro*
oialo the uoooesitj  of preparation.   It
is enough for me, llOWOVOr, that < ier*
many in building ou a scale which
will make hor the equal of Great Britain in a few years, unless we stand
by the policy, which BOema to bo generally accepted, namely, that Great
liritain must as far an possiblo, huild
ho that no single nation or no two
allied nationn could cope with her.
Tho latter, in some imaginable conditions, might bo impossible but thai
we .should keep well iti advance of
every other nation seems as clear as
the noonday sun.
