A GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE
iSpecial to the Optimist)
Masset, Nov. 9.���The question of a
new srhoolhouse   for   the   children   of
Mussel  is agitating the minds of the
ritiieiis.   Winter is coming on, and the
children have only an old building in
which to study.    It is quite unfit for
Bat in winter time.   The expenditure of
a feu   hundred  of  the  thousands  of
dollars collected on Graham Island would
be a boon to the children and an act of
|justice that  would  be  appreciated  by
til who are doing p.onear work in the
| settlements.
The Dominion Government wharf,
I und the Indian Agency buildings, at
I the Masset reserve, are well under way
I and will be completed before the end of
1 Novenber.
Under the contract with the postal
I department, the steamer Bruno will
Imake but fortnightly trips to Masset
1 Inlet during the wjnter months. Hunters
��� arc shooting a large number of geese
I and ducks at the Yakoun river.
Rev. \V. E. Collison, formerly of
IMasset. paid a short visit to his former
I home recently. He is now located at
jKincolith, on the Naas river.
The steamer Lillooet has been engaged
Ifor some time in hydrographic work on
I Masset Inlet and Virago Sound.
A party of Indian hunters will leave
lihortly to obtain specimens of the
���caribou, of which but three have been
���killed on Graham Island. Curator
IKermede made an unsuccessful hunt
|for the animals recently.
Former City Engineer McCullouch, of
INeLson. with a party of surveyors, is
���laying out the town lots in the new
Itownsite, on Masset Inlet, for the
J.Natural Resources company. W. Cook,
|��l the Anchor Investment company, has
farted his mill at the new townsite.
The wireless station at Dead Tree

George Edwards Helps to Relieve the
Tax Rate
VICTIM OF
GUN ACCIDENT
CHARLIE GYR WAS BURIRD THIS
AFTERNOON
Rev. F. W. Kerr Conducted Service in
German and English With Touching References to the Young Man's
Parents in the Far Off Fatherland.
Why is George Edwards of this city
the greatest aviator that evei happened?
Because Chief McCarvell declares that
he has had for thirty days no visible
means of support. He has been complained of a good deal of late as an
idler around hotel bars. George said
he had been working lots, and had, oh,
bags of money anyway. That being so
he can well allortl the fine of a dollar
and costs which Magistrate Carss imposed.
George further admitted that he was
drunk yesterday and for this will pay
five dollars.
VISITED SHAWATLANS
Miss Gilroy Goes to the Lake Where
Brother Lost His Life
The funeral of Charles Gyr, the young
German-Swiss who accidentally shot
himself dead while out duck-shooting
at Tucks Inlet on Monday, was held
this afternoon in the Presbyterian
church. The funeral procession left
Hayner Bros.' establishment at 1 p.m.,
and proceeded to the church where
Rev. F. W. Kerr conducted an impressive service.
The pastor referred to the tragic
suddenness of death's call to this young
man, and speaking in German recalled
to his hearers in touching terms thoughts
of religious and home life in the Fatherland.
In an eloquent prayer he referred to
the parents of the young man as yet
unaware perhaps of his tragic death
and burial in the lonely island cemetery
in this land so fair, yet so far from the
Fatherland.   .
The singing of a few verses of favorite
and familiar hymns in German, and the
reading of the burial service completed
the simple funeral service within the
church. The casket which was covered
with evergreens and white drapery was
conveyed to Garden Island for interment
with a further brief service.
A large number of the friends and
countrymen and women of the deceased
attended the service including as chief
mourners: Louis Sweder and T. Kil-
wasser, his partners who were with him
at the time of the accident, also Ed.
Kohse, Ed. Bannier, E. H. Witt, M.
Messethat, Adolph Myer, M. Luke and
Carl Heinsich.
MUST REMOVE SIGNS
All   Heavy   Signs   Across   Sidewalks
Must Come Down
The building inspector has been
notified today to instruct all owners of
business premises having large signs
out across the side walks to remove
these. Only light banners are allowed
to extend over the sidewalks.
TO PROTECT CITY
IN CASE OF FIRE
Miss Gilroy, the sister of Harry Gilroy, who was lost in Schwatlans lake,
paid a visit to the lake this afternoon,
returning in time to take passage on
the Prince Rupert for the south.

The work of constructing the new
Government wharf at the foot of Mt-
Bride street is proceeding apace during
this fine open weather. Frosty weather
is a hindrance to the making of the
concrete piles for the wharf, but every
advantage is being taken of thc present
suitable weather. About twenty of the
piles have been made up to date, and
these are now waiting for the concrete
to set, while a big gang of workmen is
engaged on building the iron framing of
other piles.
A single 100-foot reinforced concrete
pile weighs about 26 tons but the big
derrick already installed for the purpose
of handling these piles can lift up to
40 tons. The largest piles ever constructed for this class of work will be
used on this wharf. They will be 150
feet long.
No man goes far forward who has
not strength of will to back down at
times.
At a meeting of the directors of the
Northwestern league held in Seattle it
was finally decided that  Portland antl
| Victoria   should   be   admitted   to   the
] Northwestern  baseball  league,  thereby
I making  the   Northwestern   a  six   club
league.    The British 'Columbia capital
city was represented at the meeting by
Mr. Leonard  A.  Wattelet and T.  S.
I McPherson, two prominent business men
I of Victoria.    Both representatives were
i very optimistic over the results of their
I enterprise and firmly believe that with
the co-operation of the business people,
j which is assured, and the liberal patronage of lovers of the greatest game on
| earth, the Victoria club will be a winner.
With the advent of Victoria into the
I Northwestern league, the pennant race
Ifor 1911 will become more of an international affair and the Victoria people
are not going to be satisfied with a tail-
ender team.   The management realizes
this and are already getting busy and
signing up players for their team.   Matt
Stanley,   Martinke,   Whalen,   Carney,
Slim Dell, Billy Blackburn, all old Northwestern   leaguers,   are   spoken   of   as
possible members.
EIGHT  HOSE  STREAMS  CAN   BE
PLAYED ON BLOCK
Fire Chief Mclnnis Made Tests of
New Hydrants This Afternoon with
Success. Business Section Is Efficiently Fire Protected.
The lire protection of the business
section of the city is good. In the
presence of Aldermen Mobley and Pattullo as well as a number of interested
citizens and property owners in the
heart of the city, Fire Chief Mclnnis this
afternoon demonstrated the fact that he
can at need, play eight three-quarter
inch streams of water at high pressure
from the new hydrants upon any block
in the business section.
This afternoon's tests show that the
pressure is not materialliy reduced
when extra ho."c lir.es are attached up to
eight nozzles, and in all conditions
except of very high wind, a fire occurring
in the congested district of the city can
be controlled and extinguished quickly
with such an effective water supply.
Each three-quarter inch nozzle is good
for about .'100 gallons of water per
minute at the pressure now available.
We May Get It Yet
A new disease has broken out that
is puzzling the most ex|>ert oculists. It
is known as "skymania," and has developed since the navigation of the
air has come in vogue. The afflicted
imagine, whenever they gaze in the
direction of the heavens, that they see
balloons, monoplanes, biplanes and other
aerial craft sailing through the firmament. The symptoms are more pronounced after tlark when lantern, headlights and other illuminated will-o'-
the-wisps arc observed by the sky
gazers. Cases arp reported from Swift
Current, Port Arthur and other points
but residents of Prince Rupert are so
far immune.
TWENTY  DOLLARS  FOR  A  LANTERN
City  Hall  Lanterns  Are  a  Temptation���They    Shine    So    Bright
K	
The First Air Line
Washington, Nov. 7-Official
sanction was given today by the
government for the transmission
of the United States mail by
aeroplane for the first time in
history. Permirslon was granted
by Postmaster General Hitchcock for J. A. D. McCurdy to
carry the United States mails
in this manner frotr. the outgoing
transatlantic liner Kaiserin Augusta Victoria to New York next
Saturday, when that vessel is
fifty miles at sea.
It   was   not   without   some   serious
; misgivings    that    City    Clerk    Woods
. placed a lantern on a plank last night
j outside the City Hall to warn passcrshy
| of a broken road plank.   Several lanterns
belonging to thc city have gone mysteriously a-missing of late, and this one
was  almost  too  temptingly  displayed,
though there for an obvious and excellent
purpose.   Thc arrival of the road mender
to  repair  the  plank  enabled  the  city
clerk to take the lantern inside for the
night, but in proof of the assertion that
City Hall lanterns are a temptation the
case of James Whitfipld mentioned in
today's police court is convincing.
Whitfield on being charged with
appropriating a lantern, the property of
the city, put up $20 bail. He failed to
appear to answer the charge, and the
amount is forfeited. Pretty good price
to pay for a lantern $20�����h7
LOCAL OPTION
WAR DECLARED
VIGOROUS  CAMPAIGN  NOW  BEING PLANNED
Cause Strongly Supported by Leading Business Men on Practical
Grounds. Big Battle Promised.
Plans Will Not Be Published.
The members of the I'rince Rupert
Local Option League and their supporters and sympathizers with the movement have declared war upon the liquor
traffic. A strong .body of them met
last night in the Presbyterian church
under the presidtmce of C. V. Bennett.
It was enthusiastically argued that the
campaign had now begun, and the
business now before the leaders of the
party is to lay such plans as will accomplish the end for which the league
is working.
In a stirring speoch the Rev. W. H.
McLeod declared that theirs was a
fight in which Prince Rupert's best
men and busiest citizens would be
engaged. They could count on men
who couldn't be bought, men of red
blood, strong, active, good business
men, as well as vigorous Christian
temperance men, who were taking up
this cause for the practical good of the
city they lived in. He said they would
see it through, carried by a big majority.
Help in the way of organization they
might have from outside, but the
campaign would be carried to success
not liv, any outsiders' aid but by tbe
citizens of Prince Rupert themselves.
A burst of cheering greeted Rev.
Mr. McLeod's speech. His sentiments
were vigorously supported by Rev. F.
W. Kerr, and Rev. Charles Sing, who
welcomed the fact lhat the war is being
waged even more from the business
and economic standpoint than on moral
and ethical grounds. The Chairman, C.
V. Bennett, T. J. Davison, D. McLeod,
G. R. Naden, and other business men
agreed, and it was decided to appcint
a nomination committee to select ollice
bearers, and re-organize the committees
generally. This work will be completed
speedily, but thc plans and methods
lo be adopted for the success of the
campaign by the committees antl leaders
will not be made public.
C. V. Bennett exprtflsed the feeling
of the meeting when he said: "We
have come into the field tonight with
our o|ien declaration of war. Bui we
are not going to lay bare the plans of
campaign prepared by our leaders and
officers in consultation. We shall conduct the campaign as every' other campaign is conducted, keeping our plans
private till the blow is struck."
The ladies present were strongly in
sympathy with the speakers, and
will be active workers in the campaign.
It was announced that another meeting
will be held in the Presbyterian church
next Monday at 8 p.m. to which all
who are in sympathy with the local
option movement are invited.

WHERE IS THE ANALOGY. MR. HAYS?
The plea of Pr.sident Hays and the Grand Trunk Pacitie Railway for exemptions from assessment on the ground of what other cities have done will deceive
only thc unthinking. There is no parallel between Prince Rupert and any othe:
city jn Canada in regard to their relations with the railway company. Any conclusions drawn from exemptions grimed by Eastern cities, are without value in
the present  negotiations.
What tire the conditions under which cities and towns usually grant exemptions and vote bonuses to railway companies? In every case the city is ahead
of the company. It litis grown up complete in itself and sees an opportunity of
enlarging its commercial advantages by inducing a railway to enter its boundaries.
But tho situation in Prince Rupert is entirely reversed. It was the railway
which was here first and which owned the property that Prince Rupert is built
upon. It mils the railway company which organized the development company.
and set about the work of attracting citizens to Prince Rupert. It was the prospect
of population which gave value to the Grand Trunk Pacific Development Company's
property.
When Mr. D'Arcy Tate writes to the Premier "If the railway terminus were
not at Prince Rupert could you sell the land at a dollar an acre?"the obvious retort
is "If population shunned your townsite at Prince Rupert, could you sell your
property there for fifty cents an acre?" The citizens of Prince Rupert are quite
as necessary to the fulfilment of the company's plans as the railway company is
to the citizen's plans.
Because of this fundamental different between Prince Rupert and any cities
in the Baal which in their wisdom may grant exemptions to the railway companies,
the argument is without point.
What does it matter to Toronto for instance, if in order to secure a new Union
Station it wen to offer to exempt railway property to the extent of two millions.
That is less than one per cent burden to the taxpayers on Toronto's total assessment of two hundred and twenty-two millions. But for Prince Rupert to do as
Mr. Hays suggests and grant an exemption equal to $6,800,000 of its recent assessment would mean an increase of over one hundred per cent on the tax rate for our
citizens.
They are not the best advisers of the public who would argue that the council
make haste and patch up some kind of agreement with the company. A question
is never settled unless it is settled right.

Omiaaion of Three Words Misrepresent Stewart Mines
The  omission  of   three  short   words
in   a   telegraph  despatch  to  the   Van-j
couver   News-Advertiser  at   the  begin- j
ning of the now closing week, says the j
Colonist, has had the effect of throwing
all interested in properties on the Portland Canal and in the vicinity of Stewart
into a  white heat  of indignation, and
also of sending the quotations of the
stocks   of   the   mining   properties   in
question down with a rush.
The slump, which has hit a number of
past investors in these stocks extremely
badly, arose through the dropping in of
three words from a summary report of an
interview given a Colonist representative by the provincial mineralogist, Mr.
W. Fleet Robertson, upon his return
from a tour of inspection through the
Portland Canal district. In that interview. Mr. Robertson was correctly
quoted in the Colonist as saying that
"none of the other properties of the
camp une Portland Canal Mining
company's having been under previous
consideration' are as yet approaching
the shipping stage, nor likely to be before
next year." In the telegraphed repiti-
tion the words "before next year" were
omitted���hence all the heated comment
and the fall of the shares.

MR. BRYAN MAKES MERRY
In tbe face of all his past disappointments Mr. Bryan still keeps a sunny
face, and jests at Mr. Roosevelt's appropriation of the Bryan policies. In his
ipeaeh v. IwrianarwHl the other day. a speech full of wise quips and saturated with
good ten.;vr he e\ets professed to rind enjoyment in watching his rival's methods.
The Nebraska orator told his hearers that if they wanted to rind the smile which
won't come off. there was no need of their looking at the advertisements of breakfast foods:  they could come and look at him.   To quote from his speech:
"I am much ir. the attitude of the young fellow down in Alabama, a bashful
young man. who courted his girl for a year before he had the courage to propose
to her. One evening he told her that he loved her and asked her to many him.
She was a frank, outspoken son of a girl and she said: Why. Jim. I have been loving you these many months. I have just been waiting for you to tell me. so I
could tell you.' Jim was overcome with delight. He went out and looked up at
the stars and said. Oh. Lord. I hain't got anothin' agin' nobody."
"Th:;: was the way I commenced to feel years .igo about this matter. I have
been feeling better and better ever since, and I don't know what I am going to
do if I get to feeling much better than I do now."
Mr. Bryan referred to a cartoon wh:ch was published before the end of Mr.
Roosevelt's term of office as President, representing both Mr. Roosevelt and himself as bints, the former on a nest while Mr. Bryan was on a limb, the nest being
cushions, c with feathers plucked from the bird that sat on the limb, all bare, with
but one feather .eft. "Tariff Reform." "And I was wondering whether he was
trying to get that." said Mr. Bryan.
In closing his speev-h. Mr. Bryar. disavowed any dissatisfaction with Mr.
Roosevelt's appropriation of his policies. They were made for use. he said, but
it would be difficult to rub the label "Bryanism" off them, which was fastened
on them in derision when he first propounded them.

THE EXPERIMENTAL SMELTERS
The exjer.mental smelters, to which we have devoted considerable space on
another rage of this issue, is a subject of importance to the residents of this district.
1   '   ! 'ernment  is to be commended for its enterprise in thus giving   MACK   REALJK    &    INSURANCE  CO
facilities to develop the mineral wealth of the country. With the enormous and
undeveloped mineral areas in Northern British Columbia. Prince Rupert must
not let any opportunity pass to have an experimental smelter located here.
It is fortunate indeed for us that the member for Comox-Atlin. Hon. William
Templeman. is also Minister of Mines. His interest in the development of the
country, his knowledge of the mineral wealth of his own constituency, and
his position as head of the department of mines ensure that the interests of Prince
Rupert will not be passed over in this matter.

Dr. Haanel, director of the department
of mines at Ottawa, is now in the Koot-
enay country selecting a site for a government experimental smelter. This is
the outcome of live years of work in
this new dep artrr.ent of the government
during which time Dr. Haanel has
visited other countries and studied all
the smelling processes in operation. In
addition to the scientific and technical
data obtained, the establishment of the
department has been of great use in
stimulating the studies of geology and
minerology and the treatment of ores
in general. One outcome of the government's operations in this direction is
the establishment of a school of mines
and mining at McGill university second
only to the Columbia school of mines
that nas been in operation so long in
New York city, and it is hoped that the
example of Old McGill will be followed
by most of the leading institutions of
learning throughout the Dominion.
May Establish Other Smelters
In the same way it  may be hoped
that the establishment of an experimental
smelter in the  Kootenays will be followed, as in the case of experimental
talsTat,  with  similar  smelters  at  other |
points.    The  government   farms  have
been   and   are   doing   an   exceedingly >
valuable work in stimulating the more
rapid development of  the  agricultural I
industry u>' demonstrating what crops
can be grown at  the largest profit in'
various localities, the exact nature and .
productive qualities of the soil, climate,1
and so forth.    Also in their training of
the youth in the latest scientific developments of the farming industry and thus
placing it on a higher plane.
Their Value to the Country
But experimental smelters are bound
to prove of far greater value in adding
to the wealth of the country' than are
the experimental farms, because the
mining industry is in a less advanced
condition than is farming, and likely to
remain so without government aid.
This aid becomes a necessity from the
fact that the studies of minerology and
chemistry' on a scientific basis are costly
and beyond the reach of the ordinary
individual. In the same way the
ordinary prospector and mining operator is handicapped by the costliness of
the machinery necessary' to prove that
his mineral discovery' >* o' productive
value. In fact, the mining industry is
now at the very' mercy of the smelter
operators, and it is this condition more
than any other that adds to the speculative character of mining and undoubtedly is the cause of much wild-
catting, because smelter returns are not
always above suspicion.
Prince Rupert Needs One
It needs no effort of the imagination
to forsee how much more rapidly the
development of the Portland Canal and
Skeena river discoveries *ould be if
a small experimental smelter were
erected at government expense at a
central poinl in the district near to this
city. I'nless this is done the mining
of the district has to be retarded until
there is sufficient ore in sight to lead
capital to risk the expense of a smelter.
Meantime,   the   man   who   has   discovered mineral can only have a smelter
test made on it by paying exhorbitant
freight rate* and charges, and has to be
satisfied with a chemical assay.    Even
with a smelter test, as before noted, he
is not  so certain of the values of his
mineral as he ought to be.   A test made
by government would be of real value
both   to   the   prospector   and   to   the
, purchaser,   as  it  would  be  absolutely
I reliable.    An  experimental  government
smelter   here,   would   therefore   vastly
accelerate the mineral development of
thc whole of Northern British Columbia.
The South Will Get One
Dr. Haanel has practically decided to
I have  an  experimental  smelter  for  the
, south of the province.   This will be of
great   advantage   to   our   miners   and
mining operators as it will furnish them
with reliable smelter returns on their
ore; but there will still be the exhorbitant
freight rates to be paid on the shipment
of the ore to the smelter. Were an
agitation started by our mining operators for the-establishment of a small
experimental smelter here there is every
reason to hope that it might be successful. We could confidently rely on the
support of the member cf parliament
for this district, Hon. William Templeman, the minister of mines, and if Dr.
Haanel could be induced to visit the
Skeena and Portland canal next year,
and see the immense ore bodies of
value that have been uncovered, something in this direction might result.

John A. Dix, the nominee of the Democratic party for the governorship of
New York, who so woefully defeated the
candidate of Colonel Rowevelt and the
Republican party for that office, must
have felt that his was more than a
personal or even a party victory. His
words in closing the campaign in New
York City, charged Roosevelt with
being an intermeddler of inordinate
vanity, dangerous ambition and reckless
conduct, and the rebuke thus delivered
is rubbed in hard by the defeat of the
Roosevelt forces in his native state.
Under these circumstances the words
of Mr. Dix on that occasion are interesting to read. Referring to Colonel
Roosevelt he said: "In the center of
the stage there has been hurled���by
the inordinate vanity, the dangerous
ambition and the reckless conduct
of a man who has become the apostle
of tumult and protagonist of misprere-
sentation���the question of whether our
Republican institutions should survive,
or. under the assaults of the agitator
and the egotist, should go down to destruction, as have those of other great
countries under similar assaults.
"Fortunately, the battle ground chosen for this tight was that which combined patriotism, intelligence and public
spirit in their highest form, and the
decisive defeat which lies before this
creator of unrest, this instigator of
panic and this destructive agent of
business depression will not alone retire him to a sphere of well-earned and
unenvied seclusion, but will serve as a
signal warning to all other men who
may let their ambition blind their
judgment to the fact that this is and
must remain a government for the
pepple and by the people.
"Search all through the history' of
our country-, examine and study the
characters and careers of all those who
have been chosen to fill this greatest
of human positions-and where shall
we find in all the long line of men who
have stood forth in their day and generation���each as the foremost American
citizen���where shall we find a man
whose qualities, whose conduct, whose
career after leaving office have been
so lacking in dignity and self-reapect?"

FOUR MILE HILL
Property Under Bond to Syndicate of
Capitalists from Vancouver-Eight
Thousand Paid Down on a Forty
Thousand Dollar Bond.
The first result of the surface stripping that has been going on at the
Dyer-Stephenson group of claims on
Four Mile Hill, save the Omineca Herald, is the uncovering of a three-foot
vein, from which the foreman. William
Dalton has brought to town some
line looking ore. Most of the vein
filling is decomposed, the only parts
left solid being the streaks composed
mostly of quanz. Now that the vein
has been proven at this point the crew
has been started on a tunnel to tap th*
ledge at a depth of fifty feet.
On the original showing, where some
four feet of mixed ore was uncovered by
the locators, a tunnel is being driven
to tap the vein and already, while still
some distar.p away, kidneys of galena
are appearing in the rock.
The group, consisting of five claims,
is under bond to a syndicate of Vancouver men. Eight thousand dollars was
paid down on a forty thousand dollar
bond.
Work was delayed considerably in
starting but is now going ahead at a
good rate.

berths for the journey south on the

About eight o'clock last night when

nearly an accident. Right in front of
the City Hall the plankway was broken
and a dangerous hole gaped, a trap for
the feet of the unwary pedestrian in the
darkness.
The right men had discovered the
break, however, and promptly they got
busy to safeguard the passersby. They
stuck a board up in the hole. It couldn't
be seen far in the gloom, but it served
to keep anyone from tripping there and
breaking a limb.
The City Hall was handy, and there
was a light burning inside. The Aldermen had not a key for the door, however,
but knocked repeatedly. By and by

Pacific Says System Will Be Completed Into Calgary, Regina and
Moose Jaw by End of Next Year.
Montreal. Nov. 6.���Mr. E. J. Cham-
berlin. vice-president and general manager of the Grand Trunk Pacific, who j
recently arrived from Winnipeg on an j
inspection   tour   to   the   end   of   that!
track.  200  miles  west  of     Edmonton, ;
announced that the new transcontinen- j
tal would  be running a through train
(ran Bonaventure station to the Rocky-
Mountains in 1912. and that the Pacific
would be reached a year later.    He had j
the assurance  of the contractors  that
by that time the main line would be
completed   from   Cochrane,   where   the
Ontario Go\ ernment line joins the Grand
Trunk Pacific, to Fort William. As the
Ontario road would be very anxious to
get  the  business  there wa>  no reason
why the company's through train* should
not be then carrying passengers to the
Rockies and even further on.
Freight trains, said Mr. Chamber-
lin. were now regularly running from
Edmonton to Fort William, although
the contract would not be taken from
Mr. McArthur's hands until spring,
and he expected that no less than ten
millions of bushels of wheat would be
brought to that port before the close
of navigation. At Fort William, said
the vice-president, they had the ffnest
terminus of any railway on the North
American continent. Already they could
take care of at least thirty million
bushels.
Mr. Chamberlin had been over a
part of the contract east of Superior
Junction and also at other points, and
thought the quality of the work was
all that could be desired, and the same
held good as regards the western sec-
lions. As for the quantity of land
which the Grand Trunk Pacific taps
between Winnipeg and Edmonton. Mr.
Chamberlin stated that out of nine
hundred miles there were but thirty
miles which was not first class wheat
raising country, and even that was first
rate grazing land.
"Why." said Mr. Chamberlin. "if all
that country were settled, as it will
be some day. we could carry thd product of three miles wide on each side
of the road, and what will it be when
we have a settled country' on each side
as far as twenty miles from the track?
I believe." added Mr. Chamberlin.
"that in ten years the West will dominate the East, politically, financially,
and every other way. so rapidly and
so great is the country' being settled
up and so great is the general development of the West."
Two hundred miles of track were
already laid west of Edmonton and
three heavy bridges have been completed, while it was quite likely that
the Meet would reach the Athabasca
river by the end of the year. From
that point westward about seventy-
five miles there would be heavy work
and in all probability a great many
men would be kept busy through the
province of British Columbia all winter. Some eight hundred miles of
branch lines in the West were under
construction and two hundred miles
of track would be laid on these lines
before the end of the present year,
the vice-president announcing that they
expected to have their system completed into Calgary, Regina. Moose
Jaw. Prince Albert and other points
. during the year 1911. as the completion
of branch lines and feeders was almost
[ as important as the main line.
