In "The House of a Thousand Candles" a great deal of human interest
and sympathy as well as a delightful
spirit of Intensity which the characters Inspire In every witness of their
trials and tribulations, is said to be
manifest throughout the play. As a
production this pluy will excel anything ever attempted by the excellent
Margaret Oswald company. The second and third acts, depicting the

Hymnal  Commission  Wants  Excluded
"From Greenland's Icy Mountains"
���Storm of Protest.
Cincinnati, Oct. ?,.���Protests from
every section of the country against
the recent action of the Mission Hymnal Commission of the Protestant Episcopal church, wbicli ordered that
the famous missionary hymn. "From
Greenland's Icy Mountains," he eliminated from the revised hymnal, will
be presented before the Episcopal
General convention which convenes at
Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 5 next.
The fight to save the hymn, which has
been sung for ninety-one yeass by missionaries in all parts of the world,
promises to be a stubborn and bitter
It is on the ground that the hymn
tends to inspire the Christian students with the beauties of nature rather than the allness of God that the
hymnal commission recommends that
it be removed from the revised song
book. Other well known hymns also
fell un ler the ban of the commission
for tbe same reason, and in the fight
that will be made to have "From
Greenland's Icy Mountains" returned
to its old place the cause of several
other hymns also will be pleaded.

Asks Relief Expedition.
Radford has appllel to the government of Canada for a relief expedition
to be sent to Baker lake, at the head
of Chesterfield inlet, for the purpose
of landing supplies for

on his overland trip, a year from now. ] 1910,
The   Canadian   government   have   re-1
ceived the proposal favorably1! Radford
having agreed to bear the entire expense of the expedition himself.
Should the  expedition  be made,  it
[ will be the first time a steamer has
ever  made the  trip into  Chesterfield
inlet, the most northern inlet  in  the
; Hudson Bay.   The government send a
I supply    steamer    into    Hudson     Bay
every   year   with    supplies    for   the
mounted i.olicc, and Mr. Radford has
! asked   that   they   extend   the   trip   of
! the steamer to take in Chesterfield Inlet.
"It    is    absolutely    necessary    that
.those   supplies   be   landed   there   for
me. otherwise I should have to abandon the trip." said Mr. Radford today.
; "It is of gieat advantage to the
ernment, as they  will receive all my

I am undertaking it would be a large

government  will  send the expedition.
The  supplies   will   be  landed  on   tlie
shores  of  Baker  lake,  which  point,  1
will reach next September.
"I will travel north to Great Slave
lake by way of the Peace river. I expect to winter this year at Fort S��fith.
on the Slave river. From there I wiil
go on across country to the shores of
the Hudson Pay, and will spend another winter a: Baker lake. From
there 1 will go into Arctic regions, I
and will spend two years among the!
"lf the government do not send the
'relief expedition it simply means that I
1 my expedition would have to leave Ba-
ker lake for the two vear trip Into the j
north without a crumb of food.   Tha, 1
would   be   an   impossibility,   so   we
would have to abandon the trip."
Mr. Radford has with hlm two white I
men  who  have  signed  a contract to
stay with him for four years, travel-'
ing  with  him  wherever he wants to I
go on the continent.    This Is rather
a large orde>, but the men are m?n

Yesterday was a red letter day   in
the history of Xew Westminster, for
it aaw the actual physical completion
of construction work on the new line
of the Ii. C. Klectric railway between
this city an.l Chilliwack, and tlie running of the flrsl train over the entire
length of the track.    The  final    mechanical stroke    which    marked    the
completion  of this ^reat and  import-
am  undertaking was   performed    by
the Hen. Richard .McBride, who, upon i
the completion of a speedy and com-1
fortable trip from this city, skilfully i
drove home the last spike in the sixty-1
tinee miles of steel rail. j
The event was a momentous one for I
the whole of this part of the province i
of  British  Columbia,   for  from  today
onward this splendid stretch  of steel!
lined road will open up a cheap ai^d
rapi:l means   of   communication   between Xew Westminster and the num
erous towns and settlements between
here and tl%progressive little city at
the eastern end of the Fraser valley.
This  new  line  will  confer  an  immense boon upon the settlers located
along the fertile slopes of the southern valley of the great river. Hitherto
these people have been compelled to |
rely almost entirely upon the river as
a means of transit and travel to   the ]
populous cities lying in and abouts its I
estuary, and whilst this has been use-1
ful   and   helpful   to  them,   it   has  al-
ways   possessed   certain   drawbacks,'
for it is impossible for boats to pro-
vide  a  speedy,  frequent,  or   reliable;
service throughout the year.    But the I
new  line of the  B. C.   Electric  Railway company will do this, and the two
or three trains per diem that will run
each   way  will  furnish  the    farmers,
fruit growers and poultry raisers, and
the people  generally  with a certain,
quick and cheap means of travel and
dispatch. j
But beyond this the new line will
have a strong influence towards the
development of the fertile areas of
the Fraser valley. These districts,
now being placed as It were at the
door of a great market which is constantly demanding Increased supplies
of farm produce, will find increasing
favor among agriculturists and in a
very few years hence we may expect
to see this great agricultural area
thickly dotted with the homes of
thriving, happy ranchers.
The opening of the Chilliwack line'is to be congratulated upon the com-
wlli also be of the greatest advantage pletlon of this important, expensive
to tlie cities of Xew Westminster andjand costly undertaking,    and   is   de-

they will be out of the running. The
West Enders have little to
taking the game as they are out of
the league anyway. In case the Reginas win, they will play with Sapperton on Thursday afternoon for the
championship of the city.
Tlie game will be called sharpe at
1;30 p.m. and will finish in time to allow the National-Vancouver game to
be commenced about three o'clock.
The following are the probable lineups
railway construction generally is. As
a matter of fact, the cost, of the line,
wliich ii was lirst Intended should not
exceed $1,500,000, has been gradually
iaise.1 until ihe completed road represents an expenditure of over $3,000,-
000, or roughly $50,000 per mile. Our
trestles and bridges are all of the bes:
workmanship; we have used seventy
pound sicel throughout, and in every
other feature the highest standards of
construction have been adopted. Our
buildings, you will liave also noticed,
are of a most substantial type, anil In
no item of tho work has an attempt
heen made to save money by the
lowering of standards.
We claim for our railway that it
will better serve the needs of this
district than auy steam railway, as it
will always be our aim to keep in
win by | close touch with the people, and in
addition we otter mills and other industrial institutions the Bame facilities for receiving raw material and
exporting their manufactures as can
be obtained on the line of any steam
railway. We lia\e connections with
the C. P. lt. at New Westminster,
Clayburn and Huntingdon, and consequently will be able to spot C. P. R.
cars anywhere on our line to be loaded and shipped to any point ln Canada or the L'nite.l States. We have
also connection with the Great Northern railway, and cars destined for any
part of the United States can be as
easily handled from our line as from
the line of the Great Northern railway itself. In the matter of passenger service, we are going to begin
with two trains each way daily; later,
as the business develops, we will increase the number of trains, and in
this way endeavor to keep fully up to
the requirements of the district, in
addition, we will run freight trains

Reduction of Sentence Best
Convicted Banker Can Ever
Hope To Get.
Washington, Oct. 3.���No pardon
will be granted to .lohn ii. Walsh, former Chicago banker and capitalist,
who is serving a five-year sentence in
the Leavenworth (Kan.) penitentiary
for violation of the hanking laws.
The best hc will receive, if tlie president grants him any clemency, is the
commuting of bis sentence to a period
that will permit bis liberation within a few months.
This status of the case became
known following the reference of the
Walsh pardon' petition to Disttrict Attorney Sims at Chicago.
The bulk petition Itself, signed by
thousands of names, the briefs and
bundre is of letters urging and protesting against Walsh's discharge
were shipped by the department of
justice to Chicago, where they will
arrive tomorrow.
A report i.s expected from Chicago
within a fortnight. This report wiil
contain Ihe views of the district attorney. Special Prosecutor Doh.ps.
and Judge Anderson, who tried the
Walsh case. Then the plea will be
passed on by Attorney General WIckersham.
It was jointed out by administration
officials today that a pardon could
not be granted to Walsh unless a miscarriage of justice is established in
his case however both the appellate
and superiopo'eourts held that Walsh
had a fair trial and was convicted in
accordance with law. The president
will not 'take action discrediting the
verdict of the courts on the guilt of
the convicted man.
If, however, it is found that the condition of Walsh in confinement warrants the exercise of clemency, the
president will shorten the sentence so
as to give the prisoner his liberty
without abrogating a.y of the other
penalties of his crime

,The inhabitants of Lickbarrahan, a

feet long, evidently had been dead
some days. In nooks along the coast
monster fish from time to time have
been driven ashore, hut tin inhabitants declaie that nothing such as this
big whale has ever come undei their
notice. Its backbone, right at the center of the body, was broken and dented in some feet. The belief prevails
that the fish was struck by an Atlantic liner.

for its people, but wealth for this city
in augmenting volume year by year.
The next revivifying cause for the
Royal  City  lay in the announcement
of  the   new   transcontinental   line  of
the Canadian Northern.    Last year it
matured    into  a  compact  with    the
government sanctioned by the vote of
the people. It is now in course of construction.    It will  not only open  up
another section of the territory lying
south of the Fraser, and closer to the
water bed than that traversed by the
B. C. Electric; but it is now definitely
decided that its terminus is to be on
the other side of the river contiguous
to the city's property there.
The  proprietors of this new transcontinental railway design to convey
vast  quantities  of  the  prairie   grain,
and to ship it from their own wharves
into their own ocean steamers, just at
our very door.
This  announcement,  with   the  policy contained in  it,  means  that the
Fraser is to become the   great   and
only  fresh-water  port  of  the  Pacific
along this coast.

$1926, In 1890 the gross value of
real estate was $4,095,8(15 and the taxable value $3,577,815. in 1898 a fire
occurred which practically swept the
city from end to end, and as many had
departed to spheres of greater activity
never to return, the value of property decreased. But in 1901 it had risen
to $4,668.5.5. This must be deemed
the assessable value; and the assessable value, as explained in another article can not at most exceed 60, per
cent of the real value. It does not,
however, in connection with this aspect of the city's growth make a material difference.
We are concerned to show that between 1901 and 1907 the progress had
been alow. In the latter year the assessable valuation was $5,146,750. This
shows an Increase of less than $70,-

TUESDAY,   OCTOBER   4,   1910.
New    Westminster's   Banking   Institutions   Show   Prosperity (
THE financial situation in the Royal City Is one of great prosperity
iind one which warrants greatest sat-
Isfaction on the part of the financial
institutions themselves, and the ex-
tremest optimism ou the part of the
people. It is a situation of which all
of their, have a right to be proud, lor
it evinces not only enterprise among
the citizens, but prudence and wisdom as well as courage, especially
among the banks of the city.
The hank clearing's month by month
are in the majority of cities, Uie din
that. Indicates the rise or fall of the
sun of success in the commercial
world. Hut New Westminster is deprived of the advantages of this valuable Indicative Instrument hy reason
of the fact ihai she has not yet equip-
ped herself with It, but has been content in utilize that, of her friend y
neighbor, Vancouver, who in her returns so persistently and boaatfullj
placed before the unsuspecting public has added to her own, which no
doubt aie enormous, those of the
Royal (ity which certfi'ihly during the
past lev yeara have been growing
greater month hy month, and are today larger than those of any other
city of its size on tlie continent: that
is the/ would represent a larger figure than those of any other equally
sized city it' they were segregated and
separately presented. But we must
not repine. We can only repent and
amend; for the fault has been our
own. and the hanks in the adjoining
city have aete.l entirely in accordance
wiih bank usage, and the people of
Vancouver who were anxious to boost
their marvellous growth and expansion, entirely in good faith. We acquit them both. Even many of the people who read and rejoiced at these returns were unaware of the fact. But
the fact remains. We hope it will
cease to remain, not through any
amending act in Vancouver, but
tbrough a reform effected in New
Westminster. Tlie value of these returns tn every growing and prospering city is enormous. They are pithy;
they aie unerring: and people read
them. Vancouver knows tlie effect of
thei.' publication; and with that remark wc leave the rest to New Westminster,
Where then shah we go for th?:
evidences of the prosperity and growing greatness of the Royal City?
Through the business centres, tlie
wholesale nnd manufacturing arc s,

presidential districts. We there see
the evidences of wealth in the form of
capital sunk in new enterprises, in
extenting old ones, an.l in dwellings
from those of the most sumptuous to
those cf the middle-class merchant
businessman and artisan, and whatever they are. great or small, they
bear the Indubitable marks and tokens of prosperity. There is nothing
derelict; nothing waste; a:id esieciai-

City's Financial and Professional Interests Do Large Business
The Itcyal City is drawing with
magneti- force many business and
financial institutions to establish
branches here, and among others it
has succeeded in attracting the National Finance Company Limited.
The company which was incorporated in 1907. is one of tlie
most progressive of the present
day, as might readily be infened from
the fact that Thomas T. Langlois is
the piisident and managing director
of it. Through his individual energy
and enterprise, and the personal
power that he exerted in a business
visit made to Great Britain, Mr. Lang-
loig has succeeded in inducing British
capitalists to seek investments in this
country. And, as it is capital that
both the cities of Vancouver and New
Westminster and the adjacent districts need most of all, his visit must
have, and Is having, highly beneficial
effects upon both. The subscribed
capital of the company Is $1,000,000;
the assets are over $1,000,000; the
paid-up capital Is $400,000 and the
rest or reserve is $100,000.    The year
been looked for to eventuate for another quarter of a century at least.
With this at first, gradual, and then
general, attraction of new investors
and new settlers to the Far West
came New Westminster's opportunity,
too. Railway expansion, harbor improvement, the establishment of new
manufacturing and industrial enterprises, the opening up of the superbly
fertile valley of the Fraser. and a
multitude of other coi elated and convergent circumstances, started an apparently defunct, but still latently important center once more upon its
new career in an advance which has
been abundantly justified and which
nothing can now stay. To the Royal
City, then, from his railway enterprises in the neighborhood, with
youth, untiring energy, a strong and
attractive personality, a knowledge
of banking and of practical finance,
gained in the homeland, and rare in
one of his age, and what is still more
important, with an unrivalled knowledge of local conditions and topographical acquaintance with tli^ country second to none, came Walter S.

(The  Insurance   Man.)
For a number of years Alfrel W.
McLeod has carried   on  one   of   the
'argest,  most  varied, and most  reliable insurance business ln the city of
New Westminster.    Eecause his business   extended   to   and    covered    all
c'.asses of insurance he has come to
be  known  as  "The  Insurance   Man."
Mr.   McL��od   is  the  direct   representative cf some of the b?st insurance
companies of the world, and   indeed
they must be tie test and bear the
highest   reputation   before   Mr.    Mc-
i Leod will consent to act as their rep-
I reEentative.   The prnclnle upon which
i he  has  for  years carried on his es-
' "tensive business  is to  renresent the
"l most  reputable   and   reliab'e    lontpa-
nnles whether they be Canadian, British or American, so that he can ef-
. feet insurances  with  absolute  safety
' to the Insurer, and be able to give to
ii hlm   the   best   possible   terms   and
' rates.   This jiflnclple ts systematically carried out whether the Insurance
be fire or life, or live stock, against
accident,  tor employers'  liability, or
on motor car, plate glass or   otherwise.    Mr. McLeod has been a   resident of the Royal City   for   twenty-
eight years, and everybody knows the
promptitude     and    efficiency     with
which  every  transaction  ls  handled
and every contract and obligation carried out by httn. and he will not un-
Idertake  an  insurance  for  any  company that will not act In a   corresponding nenner.   His offices are at

By this we have no intention qf

manufacture wiil not Justfy the
appellation which is already often
bestowed upon her: "The City
cf Manufacture." We believe rather
that in future years, in contrasting
her with other cities of the west she
will more and more deserve this distinguishing name not only on account
of the preponderance of her manufactures, but on account, also, cf their
variety and magnitude. What we do
mean is that the Royal City has so
many other pillars, any one of which
would be sufficient to support her
greatness, that it may be a question,
inter se. which of them has contributed most to her splendid rise and supremacy among the constellation of
magnificent cities which have within
the past few years appeared upon the
horizon of the western world.
Manufacture Is not indispensable to
the geratness of any city. Several
have attained that distinction by other means���Liverpool, for example,
and the greatest city of the world���

greatness of others has been their irresistible situation as commercial

Among them are the Royal City mills
^with their extensive water front,

them is a factory where doors and
window sashs of every size, shape
and variety are made, and all the delicacies of artistic, carving are performed by machines specially desi:;n-
���ed and adjusted for eacli part of the
operation. The output of this factory-
is enormous, and has been increasing
for years.

mills wliich are situated In the Surrey district near Strawberry postofflce. The capacity of the lumber mill
is 30,000 feet ier day of ten hours,
and altogether a permanent staff of
some thirty men is employed] The
products of the mills are of the highest quality, for nn material is allowed to be used in their manufacture
but what is of tlie best description.
The acquisition of the business by the
Timberland Lumber Company Limited
whose head offices are here, will be
of great advantage to the development and expansion of the locality as
well as to the Royal City itself. The
products of the mills are already going in large quantities, not only into
the city an l local centers, but
throughout the province, beyond
whose limits no doubt they will soon
be despatched farther and farther
eastward. The managing director is A.
J. Craig, who ls an experienced
husiness and commercial man. We
trust results may 'show a great success for the Timberland Lumber Company Limited.
Thus shall lumbering ln another

does not only the highest of mechanical skill, but an acquaintance with a
multitude of devices, inventions and

Ramsay are masters of their craft,
and they quickly acquired a prominence and an extensive business as one
of the leading firms of plumbers in
the city. The work that they have
done has been extensive anl very diversified, but it has always yielded
the highest satisfaction. They have

Sir Brunton,, one of Kngland's most
eminent physicians, told the Public

twenty years was due to modern
methods of grinding wheat, into flour.
Explaining his hypothesis, Sir Lauder stild that years ago wheat was
always ground between two millstones, but today it was ground between steel rollers, which really acted like scissors, the wheat being cut
up. Wheat ground In the new way

The operations of the railways especially ��f the B. C. Electric Railway,

open up for settlement and quick cultivation a vast tract of this fertile
land, and the new Canadian Northern
which within a short time will traverse another track, will add considerably to the agricultural area tributary to New Westminster: and with
tlie Increase and widening out of the
lands under actual cultivation the
necessity for, and the power and influence of, tlie annual Exhibition and
of the Royal Agricultural and Injus-

more manifest, and tlie wisdom of
tlie original promoters more and tr.' -
The aims of the society are to encourage and promote in all possible
and legitimate ways the highest perfection in all products that can be
raised in the Province ot British Columbia. This perfection can best be
attained by a healthy rivalry by men
engaged In all branches of agriculture,
etc., from all parts of the province,
all parts of the world for that matter.
The best way to generate this rivalry
is to bring the results of the operations of one man ln competition with
those of another; and to refer the determination of the superiority to an
impartial Judge. The successful competitor returns home exulting, resolved to maintain his position, and if possible to improve the excellence of the
product or whatever else It may have
been, while the unsuccessful competitor returns to liis farm neither   des-

pondent nor disappointed, but with a
sting to his ambition, and a sound and
healthy resolve begotten of It that he
will apply himself with every assiduity to surpass his successful rival, to
re-enter the next exhibition and to
emerge from it triumphant, and with
the prize in his pocket.
Thus and thus only can the highest perfection be attained.
The advantages to the province itself of the annual exhibition are vast
and numerous. In bringing men from
distant parts, they see what the Province of British Columbia can yield;
they get enamoured of the country
and they either come here themselves   or   if   their   position   prevents
their doing so, they may advise others seeking a location to come to this
province and Eettle. At all events
100.00 visitors coming to an exhibit
of the best and richest of British Columbia agricultural produce constitute
a splendid array of advertisers when
they return to their several spheres
and tell the perfections of what they
have seen. And advertising is an undeniable factor in the greatest business successes of the present day;
and why should the rule that prevails
in tlie mercantile world not hold good
in the successful settling of provincial lands?
The  Royal  Agricultural and   Industrial  society   is   splendidly   managed
Climate  is an  important   factor in
' considering     the   agricultural    conditions of any country.    In this district,
. owing to the prevailing breezes from
j the Pacific ocean, it is much milder
than the normal for the latitude. Extremes of temperature and thunder
storms are of very rare occurrence;
in summer the temperature rarely exceeds 80 degrees in the shade and the
'nights are invariably cool and pleasant. In winter the thermometer has
only been down to zero once within
the last eight or ten years, there is, \
i however, a good deal of rain.    While :
; vegetation  does not  grow as in  the
I summer months, the grasses remain
green all the year round and cattle
1 are run out the greater part of the
time.    The summer  provides  a  long!
j growing season, cool nights and profuse vegetation, trees, roots and vegetables, grasses and the softer grains,
such as oats and barley, yield largely
and grow to great perfection and nearly all fruits produce enormous crops.
The Aggissiz Experimental Farm
which Is looked to for official agricultural statistics for the Fraser Valley
fanning  district,   records  an  average
After Inspecting tie canneries the
visitor may vary the trip by
taking a run in an electric
car. across the lovely Delta agiicul-
tural lands to the Terminal City and
back to New Westminster via the inter-urban route.
Thi; is a triangular trip that affords
great variety of scene, is full of entertainment, is inexpensive and le-
quires but a portion of a day to undertake. The river with its million-
dollar bridge, its fishing, canneries
and other industries is traversed for
sixteen or eighteen miles. An idea of
the fertility of the Delta lands is gained as the swift electric car sweeps
through the newly mown hay or waving corn fields with dairy farms and
other pastoral scenes beyond. A majestic panorama is also visible, and
causes exclamations of delight to all
admirers of nature's grandeur and
majesty as the innumerable rugged
peaks of the Coast Range rise in view.
Seen from this low lying and level
stretch of country they stand forth in
imposing  height   and   impressiveness,
ithe black rugged sentinels of the Pacific gateway of the Dominion.   These
lie to the northwest, but in the   opposite   direction,   in   almost    isolated
majesty,   stands    .Mount    Baker,    its
snow clad crown and slopes gleaming
dn the sunlight.    Westward in the distance  also,  is  seen  the  purple   hazy
outlines  of Vancouver,  and  intervening islands,   that    rise   mysteriously
from out of the grassy, sun-reflecting
waters of the Gulf of Georgia.
Passing all this you run into forest
and wood lands which continue tiir
the waters of English Bay are sighted and a few moments later you commence traveling past the ship yards;
mills, etc., that fringe the shores of
False Creek. In Vancouver the bathing beaches, Stanley Park, the beau*-
tlful land-locked harbor and other-
sights may be visited and you again
board the car for New Westminster.
This time you travel through heavily timbered high land broken up by
scores of agricultural clearings and'
dotted with Innumerable cosy suburban homes. Approaching New Westminster a magnificent view of the Delta and gulfs Is again afforded, the-
rich green of its forests and flelds being broken only by silver streaks that
indicate reaches of the north and
south arms of the Fraser River.

��� at all events its quality, among the
great harbors of the Pacific along tlie
American coast.
Real estate brokers in New Westminster as well as the owners of property here, have long preserved this
equilibrium between real estate values
and manufacturing, industrial and
commercial progress; and consequently there has never been a "boom."
As long as the prices of property
bear a just ratio to the present or
immediately prospective demands of
trade and manufacture carried on upon that property or in the environments of it, tlie prices are not exor-j
bitant and there is no boom, no matter what those prices may actually be. |
In  New  Westminster  the  prices of 1
re.il  estate have never gone   beyond!
that   ratio.      The  prices    here   have
never been anything else than values; !
and   real  estate  has  been  strictly  an
investment and not a speculation.    It
is  an  investment,  too,  whose  values
have been fixed not by any spuriously '
created demand, nor by any arbitrary,
conditions,   but   by   the    co-operative
prosperity of  the elements  of industry    and    enterprise   and    expansion,
which are making the city itself. I
For several years the industrial condition of New Westminster pracvically
remi.ined the same; it neither rose
nor fell; neither advanced nor retro-;
gressed, Real estate followed the
same course. It was practically quiescent. There were, no doubt, many investments In it. But there was no attempt to boom it. Those who had
faith in the future of the Royal City
stuck to whatever they had in spite
of the quite times, and they acquired
at current prices whatever they could
secure. Their faith has justified itself; and today they have their reward. New Westminster has entered
upon a path of progress from which
there is no retrogression.
It was about the beginning of 1908,
or perhaps a few months earlier in
1007, that tokens began to appear that
the Royal City had a destiny to which
certain forces were propelling her.
Soon these forces became manifest,
and soon the forward movement of
the city could not be mistaken. There
was nothing sporadic or unreal about
the new movement.
Railway expansion and development that had long been contemplated j
began to resolve themselves into actualities, an I to leave no mistake
that while they would traverse many
routes, they would ultimately converge to the city making a network
through the rich and umbrageous
Fraser Valley, of which for many
a day the Royal City has been looked
upon as the metropolis.
The B. C. Electric Railway extension from this city to Chilliwack was
.the most easily apprehended of the
many forces which began to move the
city forward. Here was a land prolific and propitious which had either
been left without transportation fa-
1 cilities or the facilities, whatever they
(were, were utterly inadequate.
Through its opening up in some degree by the new electric railway, an
impetus would be given to agricultural development; new settlers would
be attracted: and old settlers would
be encouraged to cultivate. The traffic would How to Xew Westminster
Which would eventually become the
great shipping port, and central distributing point for the entire territory
south of the Fraser.
'thus    thought    the    observer    of'
Next the policy of extending the Canadian Northern Railway began to
.crystallize, Corresponding results
would be produce.! by its new operations. But the full force and effect of
their policy was not forseen until
they announced a few months ago
that their terminus would be on the
.south side of the river contiguous to
the city's property theie. The extension from that point to Vancouver
will no doubt pass through the city on
this'side. But the greatest constraining fact remains to be told.
By the policy of the Canadian
Northern Railway the Fraser enters
upon its great career and destiny as
a fresh water port for the shipment
of transcontinental merchandise
across the oceans, and for receiving
from all parts of the world, their returning merchandise for transmission
through'this Dominion and'especially
the western and north western parts
Of it. In other words New Westminster becomes a fresh water port for
J whether they were attracted by the
unquestionable economic basis on
wliich the Royal City had insisted on
keeping her real estate, or whether it
was the fact that waterfrontage had
not passed Into the hands of monopolists, or whatever was the cause, the
fact remains indisputable that they
have been acquiring property here in
large and numerous lots for the purpose of erecting new industries. Some
of them are already In course of erection.
This significant trend of events has
been strengthene.l and intensified
since it ls now no longer doubtful
that New Westminster ls to be ln the
immediate future an ocean port.
wake but not ahead of the augmenting commerce, manufacture and Industry of the city.
This is the true eccnomic- plan:
this is the way to attract capital, to
promote the city in her development
and expansion.
This is the way, it must in justice
be said in conclusion, that teal es-'
tate 11 en have striven in the past to
avoi 1 a boom, and to preserve th3 just
equilibrium between Industrial prosperity and real estate. And in reliance on their continuing thus to act
ln the future, we shall know that the
increasing values of real estate are
not spurious but the natural effect of
ever augmenting causes; anl that
they are the dial which unerringly indicate^ the rise of the Royal City to
the zenith of her manufacturing power and commercial splendour.
W.    H.    KEARY.
W. If. Keary is one of the best
known figures in the life of the Royal
City of New Westminster, whose
mayor lie had the honor of being for
the phenominal period of eight consecutive years. Not only then, but
for many before and since lie has devoted his time, ability, zeal and energy to everything calculated to elevate the city, promote its development, or to make more widely known
her potentials and resources. Civic
reforms,   many   and   beneficent, were
Under this title D. C. Patterson carrier on at tJT>7 Columbia street, one of
the most extensive comprehensive
and reliable real estate and brokerage business of New Westminster.
Mr. Patterson is deeply imbued with
the greatness which the Royal City
is destined very rapidly to attain:
and he has exerted himself, with a
large measure of gratifying success
already, to induce capital from source
in the old country, whose owners he
knows  are  not   realizing  half  of  the

estate  business   today,  as  every   one est   praise  that   it
We have stated these events at
some length to show that the marvellous developments in real estate values are attributable to natural and
not to sporadic or ephemeral causes.
Here are a few notable figures
Real estate lias doubled in amount
within the past two years. In 1908 it
was $5,284,950; in 1909 $7,696,635, an.l
in 1910, $10,892,955.
Is it any wonder then that we can j
present tbe following authentic cases
of augmented value?
(1)    Two lots  on   Columbia   street
wliich  four  years  ago  were  acquired
for  $3000,  afterwards  changed  hands
at $7000.    One was subsequently soldi
for  $11,000;   and   recently  the  owner
refused to part with it at $50,000.
,12)    A   few   residential   lots   in    the
vicinity of the Orphanage which were,
sold some four years ago at $50 each,
today  are  conservatively   valued   at 1
$700 and are readily saleable at that, \
but the owner who is also a conser-
vative  man  upon  real  estate  values,'
deems   them   worth   $1000   or    $1100
each. j
(3) The general run of acreage
along the route of the new electric
car dine to Chilliwack has gone up
from $25 to $300, and that along the
Vancauver route to $1500 per acre.
Mere are a few more specific cases:
(4) Seven lots near Fourteenth
jand Dublin streets bought three years
ago at $20 a lot, were recently sold at
$650 a lot.
(5) In the best residential section
a lot wliich three years ago was
bought at $100 could readily have received a willing buyer at $1000 or
$12000, recently had the owner been
willing to part with it.
16) A business block which three
years ago was bought at $25,000 recently sold at $70,000.
(7) A piece of waterfront bought
between one and two years ago at
$23,000, was recently retained by the
owner in face of an offer of $100,000
for it.

The progress and development of
the City of New Westminster are constantly heing impressed on the citizen as well as the casual visitor by
accession of new businesses and enterprises, and by the rapid extensions of those which have for some
time heen established. Among both
categories might be placed the business now- carried on by Joseph Mayers, lt was established in 11)07 by
Mayers & Preston as a firm, but in
1909 the entire concern was acquired

>I ior self to its development and consolida-
eve:y tion. Tbe business is principally con-
�� cerned with New Wellington coal and
Anthracite coal, and it is conducted
both as a wholesale and a retail establishment. Mr. Mayers handles the
rocl in lai'ge quantities hy his own
tugs and barges and this enables him

I course, the largest end of the   business,   but   the   retail   has   under   Mr.
Mayer's   control   risen    to   considerable proportions.     The coal in   every
case  is  sifted   and   selected,  and   is

Mr.  Mayer has established as a crit-

The retail business indicates the
condition of the city and the surrounding districts, whoso denizens
come here for their wants. The retail busin?s3 men are themselves
most prosperous in every department,
from the grocer to the furniture dealer and clothier. Their prosperity reflects the prosperity of their customers; and tbat is the best tribute we

iThis marvellous emporium of what
one may call the every-day wants and
; necessities of life, has been established for two years, and it has
proved net only a boon to the citizens, but a decided acquisition to the
city Itself. Infinite is the array of articles; exhaustless the stock to the
bewildered eve, until passing within
and through the ample store one observes so many things that one decidedly needs, and at pi ices that are astounding for their moderation. The
Fair is fair in more senses than one.
Here are a few of the items of stock:
Stationery, typewriters, offlce supplies, toys and dolls, fancy goods,
toilet artie'es, gramaphones, records,
china, crockery, glassware, lamps,
granlteware, tinware, light hardware,
cutlery, etc. The wide diversity of
quality and style in each of these categories of commodities and articles it
is quite Impossible to delineate here.

Gee-ge   R.   Speck   has   for   the   past
four years carried on a large and very
diversified business, Is a veritable emporium for all classes of sporting articles  and  supplies.    Technically and
according to   custom,  no   doubt.  Mr.
Speck describes himself as a gun and
locksmith.    No doubt   he is. but   his
store indicates that he is much more
than that.    He keeps   guns, and   the
best   of  guns,    of   all    the   standard
makes and sizes, and be also keeps a
splendid stock of all kinds of fishing
tackle, sporting goods of every kind,
and bicycles of tbe best and most popular     standard      makes:      electrical
supplies for gasoline engines are also
kept in stock.   In fact this is a sportsman's  store  where   he  may   procure 1

From  Vancouver  To  Coughlan   Fruit Farms,  On
Saturday, October 8th���Opening Day of
Property���Direct Car Service
On Saturday. October 8th, at 1 p.
m., I will run a free excursion to
situated 20 miles from the City of
Xew Westminster and one-half mile
from the B. C. Klectric, Cliilliwack-
Xew Westminster line.
Tbe' merits of the property have
been so widely discussed that almost
everyone who reids the daily papers
is conversant with the fact tbat the
the richest of soil, being a deep chocolate loam.
In the immediate vicinity of the
property there arc a number of orchards in full bearing; the fruits as
they hang from the branch.es to lay,
are living evidences of the wonderful  fertility of the soil.
My years of experience in selecting
tracts of fruit land in the Fraser Vai-
Country for the purposes of subdivision, teacties me that of all the properties I have handled, COGHLAN
FRUIT FARMS compare most favorably as to richness of soil, proximity
to market and railway transportation
1 am absolutely confident that ths
COGHLAN FRUIT FARMS will advance 50 ) er cent in value inside of
rix months. This advance is fully
warranted hy the fact that the B. C.
Klectric trams have commenced running full services and in consequence
thereof hundreds of home-seekers will
make use of this excellent transportation and go up and down the line in

search of well located, rich fruit
It will be one of the first properties
to come in demand and a five or ten
acre farm will ever find a ready market at gradual increasing prices. The
soil will produce bumper crops. Tbe
excellent transportation to the COGH-
LAND FARMS, rermits the most delicate fruits being shipped to Vancouver or New Westminster In the least
possible space of time and without
any danger or loss through delay or
lough treatment in tiv.r.sit.
Your first c:op of vegetables will
pay you more than the whole purchase
price of the property and something
over for savings account. The advance in your property the first year
will be 50 to 75 per cent. This is
profit which you can count on without
any labor, exertion or expenditure.
Saturday, October 8th at 1 p. m. is
the opening day and will be the first
chance to buy a five-acre farm in this
beautiful subdivision. The prices
range from $150 to $L'5n per acre. The
terms are $-00 cash and the balance
in four half-yearly payments, bearing interest at T per cent.
I will not ask you to take my word
for all of the foregoing; come with me

Eagerly do we look forward to the
realization of this maxim in the last
and greatest work of the B. C. Electric railway In extending Its systems
along and through the half, million
acres of the most prolific soil in the
world from New Westminster to Chilliwack.
This system passes enroute through
Surrey with aboi<t 77,000 acres of
magnificent land suitable for fruit,
roultry, cattle or mixed farming;
Langley with 77,046 acres of rich alluvial soil and sandy loam, suitable
for dairying, chesse-maklng, poultry
and horticulture; -Matsqui and Sumas
containing probably 100,000 acres   of,
superb fruit and general farm land
which, has scarcely been touched,and
merely awaits the settler to reveal
not only its agricultural value but
most probably its mineral treasure;
and lastly Chilliwack itself, around
which lies the unrivalled fruit and
hop-growing districts.
The farmers and settlers throughout the entire sixty-four miles of this
Fraser Valley will have not only
cheap and ready transportation to the
market by means of electric passenger and freight cars; but also electric
light, heat and power.
They will be able to use the power
for an nflnite Variety of operations iu
their dwellings, barns, stables and
farm yards. The light and heat will
be utillzable in the same way; and
any farmer in the region of the whole
territory traversed will be able to
have the comfort and convenience of
electricity as if he resided in the city.
He can bring his produce of any
kind to the market by freight from
any part of the sixty-four miles and
return in the course of a few hours.
The  transportation  of  this  district
| whose  charm  of  climate  and   whose
scenery    of    mountain,    forest    and
[stream unrivalled in tue Dominion in-
' to a closely settled area will not only
bring riches to the city of Xew Westmlster, prosperity to the settlers, monetary   return   to   the    B.  C.   Electric
Company, but pride and glory to the
Province of British Columbia.
If the company's intention to
achieve this result succeeds, as we
believe it will, we shall hardly know
whether to hall them as colonizers,
statesmen, or benefactors. But at all
events the people of tbe province will
accord to tbem the full reward of pure
patriotism���admiration and gratitude.
The operations of the company have
now become so formidable In the various systems coming to and radiating
from New Westminster, particularly
as the Fraser Valley system is now
complete and ready for its great and
momentous career, that the company
have deemed it not only advisable, but
absolutely necessary to create a new
offlce. The holder will have tha absolute control of the entire Inter-urban lines including the new route to
Chilllawck, and of course he will be
located here. The company have appointed to the offlce Allen Purvis and
have designated him, manager, interurban lines, New Westminster. m
