The Westminster C lurahian refers io two instances which show "a
marked  difference  already  in lhe
promptness, courage,  courtesj  I
attention to business of the Otta\ .1
departments, a- compared n ith the
red-tape circumlocution, indifference, and neglect, not to say contempt, so often exemplified by ihe
lute regime, in dealing wilii western
matters especially." In the first instance, lhe fact iiml several buoys
at tho sandheads had been displaced
by the high water and required
immediate replacing (the government snag-boat Samson being laid
up for repairs) was brought t" the
attention of the resident engineer
at Victoria by Mr. Morrison, the

Crow's Nest Railway,
it is desirable ihat the Kootenay
country should have railway connection with the railway system of
Canada and at un early day. A
railway is already in operation between Medicine Hut and Lethbridge,
and the ultimate aim of this line is
to proceed by way uf lhe flow's
Nest pass into the Kootenay country.
The most certain way of ensuring
the construction of thecontinuation
is to push on the development 1 f the
mining region.
The C. I'. !!. management ure nol
unfamiliar with the prospects f"i
mining in British Columbia, and
we may be sure that as soon us lhe
development has reached a stage
that promises uconsiderablefreighl
traffic ils powerful c 1 operation will
be obtained in providing ; he n a di d
railway service, 'i'he com truction
of such a line wili not he without
its difficulties, hut the prospective
traflic should fully justify ils bi ing
undertaken. The linking of ihe
mining region lo ihe general railway system of Canada would I e a
guarantee that ils trade would uol
be lost to our own country. Mining
districts are usually dependent on
outside districts for machinery, all
kinds of manufactures and fin d
supply. As development proceeded,
therefore, there would lie a brisk
freight traffic, both in und oui.
Whether its volume justifies an immediate prosecution of theentcrprise
is a question thut the railway authorities should consider in unopti-
mistic spirit. The future ofthe mines
is not conjectural, and the arrival of
the railway would lo a great extent
hasten the development which is
all that is needed to amply justify
the undertaking of the building of
the roud. The Crow's Nest railroad
must be regarded as nn imperial 1
branch of the Canadian railway
