JUNE   FIRST  WILL  SEE FREIGHT SERVICE  While discussing the question of  . where the elevator for the storage of  grain is under consideration it might  be a good thing for Mission City to  put forward her claims for such an  institution of industry. The waters  of the Fraser River are navigable as  far as Mission City, and there is no  doubt the owners of Industrial  Mission would offer a free site: .It  may be that a little quiet work is being done by the owners of that property with a view of securing the  grain elevator at Industrial Mission.  One of the owners is. now in the east  on, business in connection with, the  offering of free sites; and he can present his claims for this locality and  without advertising the matter a-  broad. Now it may be that this paper is letting the cat out of the bag  but is was not our intention to do  so, but the opportunity was so opportune we could not help ourselves.  Official announcement has been  made by vice president. Hanna of.  the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company that a freight service  will be in operation' on the new  Transcontinental by June 1.  Construction work on the uncompleted uortions of the C. N.

There now remain's ,a-  bout 230 miles yet to'lay to-link up  the'various sections between' points  where bridges are being erected.'--'.  The track has been made ready for  traffic from the Port Mann end of  the line to Cisco, 140 miles distant,  where the C. N. R. crosses the C. P.  R. main line afew miles above Lytton  and then makes the opposite side' of  the Thompson river in an easterly  direction. Work has been well advanced on the construction of the Cis  co bridge, operations having started  on the erection of. the big 425-foot  arch, span. The two other bridges,  which are being built over the Thompson near Lytton are about completed  The other section of the line, those  between Kamloops and Yellow Head  Pass; are being gradually linked' up  the steel being laid to Mile 121,  where a, trestle' is being thrown_a-7  cross Lyon Creek.  Of, the 476 miles of track on the"  British Columbia .division of the. C.  N. R. 243 miles have been completed  leaving 230 miles yet to be laid.' A-  bout thirty miles of grading has.yet  to.be done. It is expected that'this'  will be completed and the steel laid  in order that a freight service will be  inaugurated by. June.

REGISTRY OFFICE  the public should make the most of  It -is this:The straw which broke  the camel's back was the refusal of  the government to permit the railroads to increase freight rates.  The express company had hoped to  shoulder the increased freight rates  on the shippers, including possibly  the UniUd-States government iii -the  shape of parcels post.    ,,    "  The innocent reader may wonder  how this would benefit the express  company. Certainly there would not  be any pleasure for the express company promoters in paying additional  charges to the railroads.;  Well they would not pay them.  Or to put it more accurately they  would pay them in such a way that  they would not pay. The express business is the left-hand pocket of the  railroad combines of the same coat,  i We think we can now figure out  why it would have been to the distinct advantage of the' express companies to pay additional rates to the  railroads���������and .especially in having  all  other shippers  pay.  It is almost a pity that such sagacity on the part of our captains of industry could not be rewarded by additional loot. And it is almost painful to think that such incentive is  ruthlessly being driven out of business by a more or less inconsiderate  government. ������  To be sure hardly enough has happened thus-far to cause undue excitement. Nor is there to be anything in  the way of a revolution of this kind  in the next few years, so long 'as tho  old partties hold office. But tho  handwriting is on the wall and one ex  press company has already yielded up  its earthly spirit���������about thc only  thing it .values in this sordid and materialistic ago  er'preached the morality of law and  order. They, have seldom practiced  it, to be. sure. . But they have preached it. And we would like to take  them at their word.  We would, like to see the transfer  made so gently that even the hysterical editors-of the most reactionary  press could not pretend there was'  not due process of law. This might  entail compensation. More likely it  could be done by way-of thoroughly  respectable agencies of competition  such as the parcels post.  Aside from anything else, it,would  be a tribute to the superior intelligence of the working class if they  should beat the capitalist game, in  spite of having had to hand in making the rules.  And it looks as though-they might.  ���������New York Call.  RECORD ITEMS, FRASER VALLEY  The North Burnaby Conservatives  held a smoker last week.

Of course it .would take a Socialist  administration to- do this. But we  shall not stint praising any other administration which does the work  fairly well.  The Socialist is interested in an  orderly change for the sake of civilization to follow aside fro mthe fact  that the price of a derangement will  be paid in part at least by the working class. .

Me  falls into a moody frame, and in a  tone of regret,says: "I have'worked  all  the; year  through,  but  there  is  hardly anything to show for it;  my  work has had no permanence." But  a good spirit was beside him and she  said;. "My  clear,  do' you  remember  those, flowers   that   grew   right   out  there? ' Those roses, petunias, hello-  tropes",' geraniums,"and most of all  (that beautiful lilium auratum? Well,-  they are" all gone; but will bloom a-  gain'in-th'e'spring.

And yet they were beautiful while  they lasted, filling the air with fragrance,  pleasing the eye of all who  saw them, and they are remembered  still by ..many persons to whom they  were messengers of, gentleness." And  the moody shadow-seemed to break  away from, his brow,- giving place to  a  smile  and an air "of satisfaction'..  But  later  in  the- day  after all  the  work was done,-and she was weary,  heaving- a sigh, she said sadly, "My  life is just a round of the same duties;'and seems to be wholly fruitl-  esss" It was his time'now, and look .  ing  up . cheerily  said:   "Not'so,   my  dear."
