Prominent Local Business Man Leaves On Visit To Russia
Mitchell Albert Leaves
City To Investigate
Russian Trade
.Mitchell Albert left for Vancouver
by the Prince George last evening.
As previously announced through
our columns, Mr. Albert intends entering into business on an extensive
scale in Russia. He has associated
with him several American and eastern capitalists, who formed themselves into a company and appointed
Mr. Albert as the Managing Director.
Mr. Albert at this time is, leaving

of thousands of miles of waterways.
Russia undertook the realization of
this stupendous task immediately.
Plans were laid and work was begun
on the construction of several im-
porta -  ■ months ago. These
new lines, reaching out from the
heart of European Russia to the
White, Baltic, and Black Seas, are

' ..en appointed a committee to investigate the prospects offering on the
spot, along the lines intended to be
followed by the newly organized company, will embark for Russia.
They will sail by the Empress of
Russia from Vancouver and en route
will call at different ports in China,
and Japan, finally arriving in Russia at tlie port of Vladivostock, from
which point they will journey by
train to Petrograd, at which place
they will commence their Investigations preparatory to laying down
definite plans.
The company is to bo known as
the Russian-American Development
Company. The purpose of the company being to enter Into the production of materials in the way of lumber, timber, railway ties, etc., for the
construction of bridges, railroads and
necessary buildings which will be required by the Russian Government
in connection with their gigantic
policy of railway construction which
has been decided on to be carried
out in the next few years.
Before the great world-wide war
began, Russia's  leading officials be-
connecting the Trans-Siberian Railroad with the Arctic Ocean and the
southern steppes, are provided for.
To finance this undertaking, rarely
paralleled In its vastness, Russia had
to resort to special railway loans.
The initial loan, issued last September, was perhaps the most remarkable financial surprise in Russian annals. The loan called for only 350,-
000,000 rubles, or, say, $175,000,-
000. Its size is the best proof of the
fact that even the government heads
responsible for its appearance were
not too sanguine about its success.
Well, that loan was more than four
times over-subscribed.
This, is significant of the abundance of money in Russia, and of the
faith the nation has in its economic
future.
Mr. Albert, who has proven himself to he a shrewd business man,
has closely followed the trend of the
times In his native land, and sees
exceptional opportunities in the lines
which his company have decided to
follow. They may even enter into
contracts for railway construction as

A  STRIKING  CONTRAST.

confusion in the ranks of the party,

Bays The Toronto News, and such
acute differences of opinion het'.veen
Eastern and Western leaders. The
authority and leadership of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, supreme in Quebec, is
puestioned in Ontario and repudiated
in the West. Manitoba, Alberta and
Saskatchewan are |n revolt against
the domination of Liberal affairs by
Quebec. They will submit no longer
t0 dictation by one Province. They
are equally aroused by the autocratic
rule of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. And they
seem firmly and finally determined
to resist to any extent, even that of
complete disorganization, the design
of Quebec to fasten a dual language
upon every province in Canada .
The Lapointe resolution has destroyed Sir Wilfrid Laurier's influence in the West. It was submitted
'n the House of Commons under protest from the Liberals of Ontario
and against the expressed disapproval of the representatives of the new
provinces. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was
appealed to on personal and political
grounds lo abandon tho resolution.
He received such protests by a dictatorial and autocratic declaration that
his will had to be carried out by his
party. It was carried out. The Western Liberal representatives revolted
almost without exception. There was
dismay in the Liberal ranks in Ontario. At the nod of Quebec and under the iron rule of a French leader,
the Liberal party of the Dominion
had been committed to a policy of
interference in the educational affairs of Ontario which was directly
opposed to the Act of Confederation.
A precedent hart been established,
which, under Libera! rule, foreshadowed a revolution in constitutional
practise and a deliberate design to
fore? a dual language upon every
province in the Dominion. The attempt lo interfere in Ontario indicated under Liberal Goernment a
determined movement to upset the
British   North   America   Art  and   to
'and  infantry  were  held  in  readiness
to move at a moment's notice, following receipt at Fort Brown of reports
that a party of Mexicans filibusterors
had crossed into Mexico, thirty-five
miles west of Matamoras. The American forces will be used to prevent
any attempt to reeross the river to
the American side. Mexican Consul
Garza received a report that the fili-
busterers had burned a bridge on
tlie Mexican side.
