Interview with C.P.R. Ge ieral

"I nm much surprised to heur all
ihi' stories of the hitil state of business
which arebeiog circulated iu regard to
Vancouver,"said F.W. Petors, general
utiperintendent of the O.P.R., Uritish
Columbia division,
Mr. Peters stated that the iuhor rou
ditions   in   the  west    nre  nothing  liko
so   bad tin reports would seem to indicate.   In particular, he mentioned iho
j f.ict   that business of nil  kinds is tfood
| in  Vancouvor, nud that the only dopres
sion     which lms assumod   any serious
dimensions  is in  connection  with    real
cstute speculation,     whioh hu bolievos

Mr.   Peters  said In inline', tion      wiih

From Von ouvcr lho   double tracking ol  the main  line extends  to    milo
8'l, nudwork i-e     lieing pushed forward
I with rapidity     on I'ho Selkirk tunnel,
which i.s a double track tunnel through
the mountain over live milos in longth.
Progress on Ihis work is rapid,    but
, four years at least  must  ellipse before
, ihere is physical connection     in     the
| centre of thu  work.   The roek      whieh
i- licin.r pierced is extremely hard   nnd
Hie   rate of   progress   U'     necessarily
somewhat  slow when  measured  in foeI
per day.
In regard lo new lines ,in British
Columbia, Mr. Peters slati>.1 that the
line along the Columbia vnlley i< now
through io Porl Steele from the soutb
and is boing completed to thu junction
al I'ho Crow's Nesi line,
AI the terminals the work on the
construction ofthe new pier which is
boing constructed at a cost of $500,000,
is al presenl sonic 4(ln foal out and
will he eomplotod for tho new sica.ni -
ships whieh are to be added to lhn
O.P.R. Hoot and are al presenl being
built in Bingland. |
The Q.T.P.  and  ihe C.N.H.  arc em -
ploying large numbers of men who will
be at  work all  winter.    In  reference  to '
ihe labor situation,  Mr.  Peters    men-,
tioned  that  tho Indian laborers about '
whom    the< recent conference has  taken
place, are on the whole good workmen
and good citizens.   They  quickly adapt
themselves to  the conditions    of    ihe
country and no lowering of wanes may
I"* expected from   this  source.
The opening of the Panama canal I
will give a big impel ns to enterprise
in Vancouver and will form another
oullei for Canadian wheat. In regard
lo wheat shipped out of the country!
from Vancouvei*, the China trade is
rapidly growing and Mr. Peters concluded with _ statement that when
rice shall have been succeeded as a
staple food |,y wheal flour in China
•.Teat developments may be expected
in  ■ lii— export.

The possibility of utilizing the limber lunds oi British Columbia us gmz-
ing grounds for sheep and cattle, in
accordance with the policy recently nn
noum-ed i>y Hon. W.K. Ross, Minister
of Lunds, wns fully discussed ut the
conve'nliiin of District Foresters uud
Rangers.
District Forester Percy Lemure, of
Lillo«»*i, opened the discussion by reud
ing a pupei* on lhe prospects oi s\ich
utilization of these lunds jn the ureu
over which he has jurisdiction, Ho
saiil ihut both in'the Lillooet und Curi
boo districts there were extensive
ranges suitable for both cattle und
sheen audthai only n porlion of these
lands weie at present used by the set-
tlers fot grazing purposes. Other for -
esters gave their experience of the Ok-
anagan, Nicola and Buckley districts;
and all agreed ihut the new policy
would give u welcome stimulus to the
livestock  industry. |
"The main tHffleulty with which we
will have io contend,'' said Forester
Lemare, "is in seeing lhal lhe ranges
are noi overstocked, and io protect
the rights of ihe bonn bde ranchers
and settlers*

operation among all the members ol the
Forest Branch. A broad discussion of
tbe technical points raised by the
Chief Supervisor was freely partaken
of by all the delegates, ond in reply
to several queries, Cheek Healer MoUutt
outlined >evcrul of the Intricate points
iti bis branch.
In the ufternooii session Mr. (J. S.
Mitchell rend a most instructive ud •
dress on "Cruising," detailing the most
economical method of carrying on this
important branch of the work, and
outlining the present method of establishing boundaries nnd corners, Ho
compared the method of cruising by
"forties" with ttrip-cruising for forest
purposes. In dealing with the cost of
lhe  Work, Mr.   Mitchell   lUggeited  some
economies,    and the   v.due of volume
tables f,,r this  work.
Mr. H.E. Benedict discussed the general policy suggested for land examinu

the British war office has decided to
co-operate with the Canadian Naiion-

of remounts for the army from Cnnad-
ianbreeders in every Province throughout the Dominion. This decision otters
fine possibilities and prospects lor Canada and Canadian horse nice Iers.

the production of suitable .la.ses of
horses, and our farmers can . oniil'lily Ue relied upon to make the !n>;st of

practically unlimitnd demand for remounts, and in the past military buyers have scoured many countries in
search of suitable animals anl lave

horses has been a critical problem with
ihe war office for a considerable r.ioTj-

lu 1.S78, in 18S1 and again, aud moro
emphatically than ever in 1911, tho
people of Canada rejected such a possibility by their suffrage. When the op
portunity is given them they will do
so again. But the people must not be
allowed to forget that if Free Trade
in manufactured articles Would be ruinous to the commercial interests of
the Dominiou, so might also Free
Trad.' in agricultural products work
havoc with the great industry of agriculture. Tlio great interests of thc
Nation are so united and Inseparable
that agriculture, commerce, and man-
ufactirers will prosper together or Ian
guish together. All legislation is dangerous which proposes 10 benefit one,
without looking to the con&Quences
which may fall ou the others; and how
long would the farmers of Canada remain content to buy in a protected market, when they themselves were
receiving  no protection?
THE REAL FACTORS.
No, in the solution of the high cost
of living we must turn and seek for
causes, other than thu tariff. We must
strike at production, the cost of distribution of food, and the various other causes which economists and common sense    point to, as contributing
factors.
it is deplorable that a question which
alfcets the health and happiness of all
ihe people, which strikes atthe very
heart of thc national fabric, should he
dragged into the arena of parti/an politics by a political opportunist. But.
the people must not. be confounded by
the fulsc logic of Laurier. They must
not lie blinded by his glitteriug generalities'.
For a solution of this question they
will turn to the party which has ever
beenconsis'tent in its economic teachings — The Constructive Party of
Canada.

THE IMPORTANCE Of
II LINE TO ALASKA
Proposal Discussed By
Sir Richard McBride
British Columbia as a whole is great
ly interested in the announcement made
at Washington a lew days ago, when
President Wilson broached the subject
of railway construction in Alaska. The
strong lies of friendship apart from
constant and ever-increasing interchange o( commerce between this province and her North American neighbor, naturally attract the people here
to anything that may be ot material
interest to their cousins dn thu great
territory of Alaska. For years past
Sir Richard McBrlde has beeu a strong
advocate of the construction of an arterial north and south line through the
Western country. Especially during
the past two and a half years, since
Sir Richard lias addressed himself to
the quesiiun of the Pacific Grenl Eastern Railway, from Vancouver northward through the province to Fort
George and thenee to Peace River, has
lie endeav orcd to cultivate a sentiment
that might muke for the early realization on the part of the Canadian and
American peoples, of not only the
great inherent worth to both countries
of a north aud south line, extending
from Alaska, through the Yukon Territory and down through Britisb Columbia, but also the wonderful practicability of sii'-h a scheme.
LINE QUITE FEASIBLE.
Jt is common knowledge today that
railway construction irom the Pease
River into Alaska territory presents
little or ilo diliiculty from an engineering viewpoint, and may be regarded as
a task the financing ot which need not
be excessively high. The mileage
necessary to link up thc great North by
rail, and. in Western parlance, put
Alas\ft "on the map,'* would not be
great, anl in ihe opinion ed experts
who have devotod -oaie attention io
the subject, ilie undertaking could bo
carried out both expeditiously an;l economic illy. Those who live in tlie west
and know of the wondrous wealth of
thc Nortli, have often marveled ut the
almost inelilfercnt altitude of the A mer
lean people towards Alaska's commercial expansion, when the hundreds' of
millions of dollars spent on the Philli-
pines and other foreign ventures would
undoubtedly have produced a tremen
doua wealth i'or the American nation if
applied to the opening up of the great
teiritory io the north of us. A nortl'.
and south line must necessarily embrace a large section of Canadian territory, whieh would share equally with
Alaska in the beneficent results to
follow. This ts a circumstance, however that ought to and musl meet with
the warmest commendation from Wash
inton, D.C.
SIR RICHARD'S VIEWS
When questioned by The Colonist,
some time ago relative to the idea, the
Premier stated thnt In lus' view, few.
il anv, announcements Iiave come to
this part ol tbe world in these late
years fraught with more importance to
ihe Northwest than that to which
President Wilson subscribed a few days
before. "It seems that as yet our people have not lieen uble to grasp the
magnitude of the American Program,
and what it means t0 us,"be continued
"True it is that so far as advised,
President Wilson's program does not
make for the building of an arterial line
in the sense that his immediate proposal will only mean the building ofa
north and south railway that can be
linked up witli our railway system.
His protect involves tho construction
of a line from the Coast of Alaska inland to the Mudawaska coal fields.
The road, admittedly of much potential worth to the United Statel, would
be classed more as a lutcrul lhan i.s
. an arterial or trunk line, but it is one
that would later on unquestionably
form an important factor in tbe do
Velopment ol a moio extendod pro
gram.      It   serves  to had      us  lo    tbo
conclusion thai the American governmenl has today passed judgment upon
its splendid Not tbem possession and
determined upon on aggressivo policy of
whidi tke Maduwnska line is tbe first
instalment—and one that must of necessity be followed shortly by a more
elaborate program.
BEVERAL CONSIDERATIONS.
"From the viewpoint of thoOanauian
there ars several considerations     that
a
cannot but occur to tbe mind of     t'je

wealth of the North, lho accessibility

well as the opening up of the Panama

A SENTIMENTAL ASPECT.
"There is, however, a sentimental aspect to the case that hus always appealed to me strongly, tt bespeaks the
fraternal contact that such an international lino must moan to all of us.
Good and true neighbors as we are today, I know of nothing that would con
duce more to the creation and up-build The inhabitants of Britisb Columbiu limbered land, and which, under ihe
ing of a warmer cordiality on ihe pl rt are often accused by thoso ignorant of careful systems of reforestation, and

Surely no one who today subscribes to tion of the province, and especially in timber producing areas iu the civiliz-
Pivsrdent Wilson's policy will deny tho
necessity for adequate territorial defence, nor can anyone who believes in
Northern British Columbia and the
Villi,in hesitate to admit that our own
possessions are equally concerned in
this direction. Apart from efficient na
val equipment nothing would make for
a surer means of defence than this railway line. In fact, il seems io mo that
national pride alone, even it iho country were not So promising by half,
Ought io justify the Canadian and Am
erionn peoples in the serious consideration ofthe urgency of such a means
of transportation as thus1 lino would
afford. This phase of the work would,
of course, end in a treaty between the
(•umpire antl the Uuited States, and 1
know of no lime more propitious' for
such a st"p than tbe Spring of 11)15,
when it is proposed lo celebrate the
i enteuary of peace.
AeNTIClPATHS CRITICISM
"There will, of cours*e, bo criticism.
Thai is io hi' expected. Some of it
may even come from transportation
circles imbued with the fear that the
i ail way would injure tho eoas'twise

One of the greatest direct causes of

city than Revelstoke. It is as nearly
as possible in the centre of that greal

for a length of 350 miles between the

occupy because of the railways built

INDUSTRIAL  POSSIBILITIES
While Revelstoke thus occupies an
exeeptionally strong position as a
traffic emporium, its outlook is still
brighter from an industrial and manufacturing point of view. There are
1,800 miles of timber on the Columbia
river and its tributaries north of the
city. Tho expenditure involved in the
conversion of this timber into a marketable product will not fall far short
of $275,000,000.
Water power is plentiful in the vicinity, the i-ity having harnessed one
stream to a capacity of 1,800 horse
power, whi-h is ollered for industrial
purposes at low rates.
In tho valleys tributary to Revelstoko are about a quarter of „ million
acres of land of good quality, and
which, when cleared oi timber, and
cultivated, is well adapted for fruitgrowing, poultry farming, dairying,
stock raising, and general agriculture.
This land is capable of supporting a
rural population of 30,000 people.
Extensive and varied mineral deposits are known to exist in the neighborhood,  and await development.
Cradled amid beautiful scenes of
mountain and glacier, forest-clad bill
and vale, river, stream and lake-, favored with an equable climate, Revelsloke is one of the most picturesquely bleated of Cnnaelian cities and an
ideal town in which to make a home.
It is well lighted, has a high pressure supply of pure water which can
be extended to meet any future re -
quircmonts, good drainage and sewerage, high-class educational institu -
tions in the way of public and high
schools', a Y.M.C.A. witb a well-
equipped gymnasium, two public parka
fair grounds, race track, magnificent
summer park oa Mount Revelstoke
connected with the city by trail, nice
homes and gardens, and in fact all
the modem conveniences thai go to
make a town attractive from a resi -
dential poini of view. iThe great
summer and tourist resorts of the
Ro'ky Mountains ara with.n a few
hours reach.) Good fishing may be
had in many of the adjacent streams
and lakes. Hunters will find here resorts of big game with reliable guides
at call.
IDEAL CLIMATE.
One of tho most valuable assets of
tho district is its climate. It is comparatively mild, epiable according to
tho seasons, salubrious, bright and
sunshiny throue.diout the greater part
of thc year. Tbe heat is not excessive in midsummer; thc evenings are
always pleasantly cool. The winters
are not extreme, tbe temperature rarely falling below zero, and then not
exceeding ten degrees below for a few
days in midwinter. The natural moisture la sufficient to make Irrigation
unnecessary. A more bracing atmos -
phere it would be difficult to find.
The Government i*ecords   show summer mnl winter ranges of temperature

SIR RICHARD McBRIDE
The Man and His Work
Monday was the l.'ird birthday ©#*
Sir Richard McBride and we extend ta
him our very heartiest good wishes. Hei
is a young man, yet for over ten year*
he has been at the head of affairs in
British Columbia and has been the directing spirit in evolving a courageous
policy which has brought tliis provinoe.
from the verge of bankruptcy to th»
enviable position it t'jday enjoys. A.
birthday anniversary is not the occasion io deal with political measures, no
mailer how much they may be ideuti-
ted with our growth, lt is of Sir Rio-
hard as a man. as apart irom hie position as ihe head of ibe government,
ihat we wish to say a few words. Him
engaging personality, his bonbommi*
and his staunch comradeship have been
the means of winning him hosts oi
close friends, not only in the Provinc*
when he so capably governs, but throughout Canada, the British Isles and
the United States. His ability, coupled with the strength of character
which he possesses to an unusual degree, have obtained wide recognition
He is an empire builder and a statesman, who is gifted with the true imperial prescience of thc destiny of the;
British race. He is one whosees far
ahead, and has [he courage to devote
wisely conserved energies to the ac -
eomplishment of development work*
that will benefit, not ouly tbo preBenfc
but future generations and make for
the increasing solidarity of British Co
lumbia and heT sister states. Tho grow
in_' popularity that ho enjoy-' depend*
noi alone on his success as an administrator but as well upon thc iact that
he is so intensely human. Ho belongs
to the Province an I enters im,, its We
with a zest whieh no personal success
■ an diminish, no new honors impair.
There are instances where men who
hold similar high office stand aloof
from thi» community thoy govern, thua
losing tou.'li with the trend of sentiment and so arc unable to retain their
holdonibo affections of the people, lu
is not so with Sir Richard, for his
greatest pleasure is to meet and oonsult
with his follow BritisTi Columbians on
matters ol provincial and ■ ivic development and to show a keen interest in
their personal joys and sorrows. It ia
these characteristics of his tbat have at
tracted to him so many close and loyal friends, and whi.-h. joined with hia
groat administrative abilities, have
given him thc practically solid support
of this great province In his work for
its development. Wo wish him very-
many happy returns of his birthday.

BRITISH
CONSULAR
JERVICE
AT CANADA'S DISPOSAL
How Trade Might Be Extended
The worli being accomplished by
l-l.ui. George E, Foster, Minister of
Trade and Commerce, in having tbe
British consular service placed at the
disposal of (Tamilian merchants, was
■ villained and eulogized by Mr. J.
Joyee-Broderiek, late vice-consul for
the British government in New York,
i ml now British consul ut Amsterdam
Recently Hod. Mr. Foster succeeded in
having th" British consular service
i laced ai th.- disposal of Cana Han
nn  chants.
l-i liis opening remarks. Mr. Brodcrick
declared thai he was desirous of doing something, howrer small it might
ii.-. towards bringing, in tbe present or
iti ihe litinre. Canadian business men
into closer and more intimate rela - ,
tions with the Imperial service to
which he had the boftor to belong.
FEW QUERIES.
He said that during the \ears be hu'd
-t'eiit a< a consular nrtie-ial in New
York he had liii-n much struck by the
rarity of the occasions on which en-
t|iiiries from Cqnadn ha.l reached the
uousulute genernl, anl il had occurred
iei him and to others of liis colleagues
as well, that possibly Canadian busi -
ness men, for some reason or other,
might be dis|io-c 1 to regard the Brit -
ish Consular Service as existing ex •
. Insively, -,, far as its commercial activities at" concerned, for tIte benefit
and advantage of English, Irish and
Scotch manufacturers ape] exporters.
NO BARRIER.
It had been suggested to bim that
such a notion, if it really existed nt
all, might be largely dispelled if one
"f His Majesty's consular officers were
to make' a visit to lhe Dominion, and
explain thai not only no barrier existed which Would prevent British consular ollicer-' from placing iheir services
at the disposal of Canada, bin that the
Hriiish government and the consuls
themselves eagerly and keenly desired
that they might have very frequent op
portunitiea fordoing so.
AROUSE INTEREST.
Continuing on the subject of the relations between Canada and the British Consular Service, Mr. Broderick
poiut'!<l out that he Was beginning a
short tour, to arouse, it possible, a
greater interest in the possible, services
whicli British consuls all over the world may be in a position to render to
the   commcree of  the Dominion.
CANADA'S   PROSPERITY.
Mr. Broderick spoke of the growing
prosperity of the Dominion. Thus, for
instance, the output of manufactured
produi* in thc Dominion last year
was valueel at 11,166,-000,000. During
the pas; decade, asserted the speaker,
tin capital invested in industry has
increased hy about 180 pcr cont., antl
in the same period tbo value of industrial productions in Canada has
increased tome 144 i>er cent., the total
volume of i*ouimer."     having   almost
The Sensible Solution of that

The Gillette is a  r-*l jjift  for a real man —a gift that ts

It doesn't merely lock (ine, though the Gillette is certainly hard

business sense as v/ell a * his good tasle, for it gives him, every
day in the year, a service * h u i *-i|iial he could not get from any
other source.
The gift ol a Gillette Is a compliment tt sny man, for a decade
of use has proven it undoubtedly the best razor that money
can buy.

you will find elsewhere came fully up
to tho high standard prevailing throughout the exhibition. The staging of
the birds Was somewhat marred by tha
crowding of thc birds in the opera bouse , which proved far too small for the
number of exhibits. The agricultural
