Winnipeg, March 23.���Since the
turning of the first sod on the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway at Fort William, Ont., Sept.
Ill, 1905, by the premier, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, the const ruction work has
procoedod steadily to tne extent that
at the present time, covering a period
'of four yars and a half since the 160 acres of Section 24
building of this transcontinental rail- ( per acre,
way has commenced, of the entire
imain line from Moncton to Prince
Rupert, a distance of 3,550 miles, a
'total ot 2.000 miles has been placed |
under construction, on which there j
has been laid 1,795 miles of track,
| wllich in some cases is made up of !
'. disconnected sections, and is therefore not all continuous. That portion of the line, however, from Winnipeg to Edmonton, 793 miles, has
been constructed, and has been in
partial operation by the construction
I department for the past 18 months,
'and within the past 90 days the
track has been completed continuously from Edmonton westerlay to
Wolf Creek, 122 miles, thus completing the track laying on that portion
of the line designated as tlie prairie
section, Winnipeg to Wolf Creek,
915 miles. The track laying was also
recently completed from Winnipeg to
Fort William, thus making a continuous line from Fort William via Winnipeg and Edmonton, to \Volf
Creek, 1,360 miles, which, however, cannot be completed for
practical operation for some
months, as considerable work is required to be done on the easterly and
westerly ends of the line, to put it
in a suitable condition for the movement of regular trains. The other
portions of the main line on which
the rails have been laid are situated
at different points east and west of
the city of Quebec. During the past
year contracts have been let for the
const ruction work from Wolf Creek,
.Min it a, westerly to Tete Juno
Cache, in the Rocky mountains, 170
miles, and there are at present engaged on this section of the line 1,000
teams and a large number of men.
Similar forces are also engaged on
the construction of the line from
Prince Rupert, the terminus of the
Pacific coast, easterly to Aldern.eie-
B. C, 240 miles.
In addition to the mileage referred
to above the provincial governments
of Saskatchewan and Alberta passed
acts at  the sessions of their legislatures in   1909, authorizing guarantees
for the construction  of branch lines
by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
company in these provinces to the ex- j
lent  of 686 miles, comprising branch
lines from the main line of tlie Grand '
Trunk Pacific railway to Yorkton, Regina, Battleford, Calgary, Lethbridge,
Macleod and Coutts, the construction
of wliich is at present under way. At !
the session of the Saskatchewan legis-
lature in December, 1909, an act was i
passed  athorizlung  the guarantee of j
the construction of additional branch I
lines   by   the    Grand   Trunk   Pacific
railway  in that   province,  to  the  ex- !
tent   of   175   miles,   comprising   lines |
southeasterly   to   the   l'nited   States
bounary line, from the main line of
the  Grand   Trunk   Pacific  railway  to
Prince Albert, and from Regina westerly to Moose Jaw, Calgary, etc., and
the construction of these will be undertaken   during   the   present   year. 1
From the foregoing it will be observed j .CAPITAL $14,400,000.00
that out of a total mileage of main
; lino and branches of approximately
17,900 miles, there have been completed or are under construction at the
present time, approximately 4,800, or
sixty per cent of the entire mileage
authorized by the company's chatters.

NEW  HOTELS FOR CANADA.
THURSDAY,  MARCH  24,  1910.
TO   BOOST   NEW   WESTMINSTER.
As we have remarked on more than
one occasion,  Xew   Westminster  has
arrived  at  that point in  her history
when   everything  concerning   her   fit-
tare  depends   upon   the   use   that   is j
made   by   her  citizens  of   the  opportunity   which   pres. nls   itself   for   her j
to leap forward and acquire a premier j
rank  among  the  great cities  of  tiie i
west.   The Royal City stands at the
gate of promise,   it. is for us to seize
the  moment   of   opportunity   and by
industrious   effort   aud   well   directed
means to  induce  a  period  of  active i
progress and sturdy development.   It
is as to the way in which this end may ;
be accomplished   that   we  now  have I
something to say.
Whilst it is a pleasure to acknowledge the excellent publicity work that
has been and is being accomplished
by the secretary of the llyard of
Trade in this city, if seems to us
that there is plenty of room, and indeed that there is actual need for
a more active and more extensive effort towards attracting merchants,
manufacturers, residents and settlers
generally to this city, than is at all
possible under existing arrangements.
ln other words, it requires a special
combination of the hest men among
the citizens of Xew Westminster for
the particular purpose of advancing
the interests of this city.
There is no reason whatever why
New Westminster should not expand
in a most natural and healthy way
iiiio a busy, thriving port, a humming centre of industrial activity, und
a favored residential location. In
fact, al, the circumstances of her po-
siUon, her surroundings and her natural endowments tend towards the
attainment of this great purpose, But
such a desirable result cannot he
accomplished without some honest labor and enthusiastic effort on the
part of the citizens. The mere utilization by arm chair methods of favorable events that may crop up from
tiuic to time will not bring to this
city tlie real greatness that is due
to her. An assiduous propaganda
must be set afoot; the gospel of New
Westminster must be preached persistently far and wide: there must be
both individual and conceited action
lo direct possible contingencies In the
direction of this city; a general effort
to induce the flow of capital, of industry, of commerce, of travellers and
tourists, of public notice generally to
this city.
This can only be achieved by a
strong combination in which the spirit
of enthusiasm runs strong. Let New
Westminster take a leaf out of the
book of Vancouver. ihe Terminal
City has profltted exceedingly from
Uie good work of its Hundred Thousand club and Its Tourist association.
Let the hest of our citizens get together and establish an agency or
agencies of a similar character to
push forward the progress and development of Xow Westminster. Let us
have, say, a Royal City Development
association, with a good worker and
a man of parts, well paid, as secretary.
Time and circumstances are ripe for
immediate action In this direction,
and if half a dozen, or even a modest
trio of good men will lake the matter
boldly in hand the foundation of an
effective means of promoting the interest and welfare of our beautiful
city  will  he as good as accomplished.
First One Will Be Erected In Montreal on   Elaborate  Scale.
Xew York, March 23.���A chain of
Carlton-Rltz hotels In this country
and Canada, in practical business
operation with the Carlton and Rltz
hotels of London and tlie Rltz of Paris, is what William Harris says is
being arranged. Mr. Harris is chairman of the Carlton and Khz Hotel
company,    lie said:
"The first will be opened in Montreal, for which the capital is already
subscribed, the enterprise having the
financial and moral support ol the
best and most influential men in Canada. It is to contain 250 rooms, with
restaurant, grill room, a grand ballroom and state banquet room. Tbo

years at cost of from $2,500,000 to

CALGARY  FREIGHT MEN
ON  THREE  HOURS' STRIKE
Calgary, March 23. ��� An hundred
freight handlers went out on a short
strike a few days ago in the C. P. R.
shops on the grounds that they did
not want to have hospital fees deducted from their pay withoui their
consent. The greater majority of the
men belong to fraternal societies, and
the advantages of C. P. it. hospital
fees did not appeal to them. They
were out three hours, and then Superintendent Maharg wrote a letter promising to give back the dollar wllich
had been deducted trom the men's
last montli pay check. The fee used
to be optional and only 50 cents, but
ihe C. P. :;. lias endeavored to make
al! the men pay the fee. and thus tile
present, trouble arose.
The men acted under the advice of
1'. .1. Nolan, K. C, when they went on
strike for their dollars. They expect to have further troubles over the
matter when next month rolls
around, for the present, arrangement
is only a temporary one.
Bureau to Identify Criminals.
Ottawa, March 23.���The supplementary estimates of the department of
justice will shortly be presented to

Winnipeg,   March  2".���That  Engin-
jeer W. J. Clifford has located a splen-
'did line for Uie Hudson Day railway,
northeast   from     The   Pass,   was   the
statement made by Chief Engineer J.
Armstrong  this   morning  on  his  return from The  Pass.    There will  be
1 no heavy work on this portion of the
line,  which can  be constructed at a
comparatively low cost.   Mr. Clifford
' will remain in tho north all through
Ithe summer  ,and will  make  location
1 of the roadway for a distance of two
hundred  miles  or  more.    He is left
I unhampered   in   his   duty,   and   will
press on toward  the bay  as rapidly
as possible.
ln the month of June, as soon as is
possible after the lake is clear, another party will go north, aud will
descend the Nelson river. .Tsut how
many men, Vnere will be in this party
antl '.iOW lhe work will be carried on
���tils not yet. been determined. The
company will leave, however, early i;i
the month of June, and will be occupied in tlie work fur tlio balance
of i lie summer and fall.
.Mr. Armstrong went to The Pass to
meet .Mr. Clifford to receive information from him and to give him direction., US it would be the last time
that the' engineer would be into the
mission for some time. The train
from Hudson Bay Junction leaves that
point for The Pass every Tuesday
morning, and makes the return trip
on Wednesday.
Speaking of conditions in the part
of the country through which he
passed, Mr. Armstrong stated that the
spring seemed to be more advanced
there even than in Winnipeg. Seeding was being done in many parts of
northern and central Saskatchewan,
and the weather was very mild. The
railway line from Hudson Bay Junction to The Pass was described as
being in very good condition. Much
ballasting was done in 1909, by the
C.N. R., and there would be no difficulty in connection with the operation of the line in the future. Large
quantities of flsh are being brought
out at the  present  time.

Von    Gersdorf    Promises    Something
That Will Rival the "Knights of the   i
Round   Table"   Affair.
Berlin, March 23.���More scandal
i like that which overwhelmed the
, "Knights of the Round Table" is
promised by Count Von Gersdorf, who
is not only a member of the Prussian
! house of lords, but has been a cham-
jberlaln to the Emperor.
The counts' wife, a sister of the
j first Countess Von Pfeil, committed
suicide at Monte Carlo. Count Von
Pfell was tried by the imperial military authorities last week on the
charge that he bribed their servants
awear falsely against his first wife
when their marriage was dissolved in
1907.
During the trial for perjury Countess Von Pfell testified bitterly.
"My sister killed herself because
she had just such a blackguard for a
husband as 1 had."
"Such a statement is an absolute
lie," says Von Gersdorf publicly. "My
wife ended her existence because her
physicians felt compelled to tell her
she suffered from an incurable disease.
"During Von Pfell's trial 1 remained
neutral, though the Countess had
made the lowest Insinuations against
me. This last attack of hers is too
much; I shall make public facts about
the Countess that are known to me."
The military authorities have ordered a new trial for Count Von Pfeil
on the charge of perjury. So Von
Gersdorf will have an opportunity
to testify for Von Pfell and to blurt
out the damaging facts he pretends
to know.

be paid in before April 30, which
would bring the total for the year
well over $2,720,000.
The total amount collected last

about a qaurter of a million in excess
