C.P.R. SPECIAL
TRUST FUND
Some Probable Uses
Speculation has been rife during tlie
past couple of weeks at Ottawa as to
what the Oanadian Pacific, Railway  intends to do   with   the  $4'2,00O,0lKI    nest
egg, which it will have     by its latost
financing.   The most interesting s'tory,'
and one which the   Liberal press has |
assiduously  spread, lias  been that   the
C.P.R.  is  preparing to  purchase     the
Canadian   Northern  Railway and   that'
this amount is being collected with   a
view to grabbing (ho MacKenzie     and'
Mann interests, it they should be forced in bo thrown ou thc market.
Your correspondent in in   a position
to    give  this    a  most emphatic denial.
Thc government would not permit,the
C.P.R, to purchuse a competing line,
which various Canadian governments
hnvo lieen fostering for years for tho
sake of sOCUrillg for lhe people railway
competition, One of the cabinet ministers pointed out thai after having
como lo the aid of the Canadian Northern last year, and tided it over its
financial difficulties, it was not likely
to allow it to be bought out by the
Canadian Pacific. Hc, as well ns other
ministers, gave lho story a most emphatic denial and strongly declared
that if such a move was in the air, it
wouldnot be permitted,
11 is well known that ihe C.P.R.
has plenty of money for its ordinary
construction worn, so that there is
naturally a good deal ol speculation as
to what the new fund will be used for.
With the C.N.R. proposal eliminated
there are several possible stories. The
most likely, and ihe one which it is
believed is correct is that the C.P.R.
is planning nn aggressive construction
cnmpaigu in Northern Saskatchewan,
Northern Alberta, and Northern British Columbia, Ths only part of the
West which ihe C.P.R, does noi tap is
the great northern stretch through the
fertile Pen e River c,,uniry, an I the
great agricultural stretches oi Northern British Columbia, Both thc CN.
R. an I Q.TP. are laying steel, or securing- charters in every direction, und
ii is generally believed thai the C.P.R.
also is now planning an invasion of
the North.
Au .ther rumor has it ihat purl of
tin money is to be used for tho development of the C.P.R. steamship sec-
ice. The opening of the Panama Canal is going te> mean a rearrangement
of the ocean traffic routes, and it irt
rumored that the C.P.R. is planning
for tho impetus to tr.-nl,- which is
heiiin.l to follow. There aie steirii"; at
Ottawa ih it the C.P.R. may open
a steamship service direel from Brit-
ishColumbia. through the Panama Oa-
e al to the did Country.
