CONTRACT  Although there is no definite announcement available at the moment,  Premier Oliver stated this morning  that the contract for the construction  of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway  extension north of the Clinton section  would doubtless go to the Cotton Company, Ltd.", of Vancouver.  Before the final award is made, however, the contracting company will be  required to put up a bond of $100,000  and to provide such other satisfactory  references guaranteeing its bona fides  and general ability to carry out the  work with satisfaction to the government.  Some three hundred to three hundred and fifty thousand dollars are involved in the contract which provides  for the laying of steel from a .point  north of Clinton for a distance of  fifty-two miles, ending at Williams  Lake,, tenders for which were recently  called for. Twelve tenders were received aud for some days past have  been duly considered by the Premier  and the Department over which he  presides.  ""The"size of the bond required by the  government is somewhat larger than  usual, Premier Oliver taking the stand  that ability to conform to these requirements will be the best sort of  proof that the job will be in capable  hands. It is understood that the Cotton Company is experiencing no difficulty in this direction.  •" B.-C.

It is not just the truck manufacturer or the truck owner today who  is thinking of increasing the motor  truck tonnage, it is the gravest concern of the men at Washington that  our transporation facilities are so inadequate. The following announcement should be ready by every truck  owner with interest.  The Council of - National Defense at  Washington -is a body of men, concerned   only   in   the  winning  of, the  war, that is their job—read what they  say regarding motor haulage:  "The Council of National. Defense  has given its' formal approval to all  measures designed to facilitate the uss  of motor trucks in transportation  wherever it can be, utilized. Its efforts in this connection have been  directed,through the .highways transport committee, .through ,the state  councils of defense,and other agencies.  It is urging all communities, as far as  possible, to adapt the motor truck to  their local-needs arid encourage1 Its use'  tions that tend to restrict and discour  age such use."  TRACTORS AND TRAILERS  A  BOON   TO  BUSINESS  Tractors and trailers are the ultimate solution of many of the present  haulage problems—if you have loads  that* consume too much time in loading—if you have too excessive loads  for one truck to deliver to one destination—-if .you have short turns and  narrow places to unload ,, in—then tra<v  tors will, help you master the situation.  It is well known that a good truck  will' pull'twice   or    three   times   as  i  much as it will carry—so.wlien it be^  comes a matter of increasing loads—  that' fact '-does not necessarily" mean  that the cost of haulage must be increased.  r*  By using,tractors and semi- or two-,  wheeled trailers,, vou are enabled , to  keep.thejtractor working all the time,  DAVIE VULCANIZING COMPANY  „t> ,™JT!le'R,ac0;For Awto and Tire Repairs  MR.
