The buildings will  be" of frame^ construction each 150x50  feet in dimension, while in the machine shop new and modern machinery will be installed including an  electric travelling crane. A well arranged pattern shop will be built  over the machine shop. The cost of  the buildings will be approximately  $15,000 and work will be commenced  at once.  TO   BUILD   NEW  STATION   AT   SMITHERS  SMITHERS. B. C — Within two  weeks work will be started on the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company's new station at this point,  states  Supt.  A. Kilpatrick.  Mr, Kilpatrick was advised by the  chief engineer that the contract had  been awarded to a firm on the prairie, and that a start would be made  as soon as the material could be  brought in. The building will occupy  a commanding position at the foot of  Main street.  CONTRACTS    FOR   TEN    VESSELS.  NEW WESTMINSTER j—Contracts  for the construction of ten wooden  ships for French interests have been  secured by Mr. John Hastie, for the  New Westminster Construction &  Engineering Company at Poplar Island, according to a telegram received from Mr. Hastie at New York,  came up for discussion. Very shortly  it is expected Hon. C. C. Ballantyne,  minister of marine and fisheries, and  Hon. F. B. Carvell, minister of public works, in the federal government,  will be in'Vancouver, and it is hoped  that they will have an opportunity  of taking a trip up the North Arm,  and seeing that the claims of South  Vancouver, Richmond, Point Grey and  Burnaby, to have the North Arm  dredgedv are well founded.  NELSON   NOTES.  Excellent progress is being made in  the face of constant difficulties by the  Canada Copper Corporation in its huge  development work near Princeton, B.  C. The bigness of the undertaking  can best be realized by the statement  that fully $3,000,000 will be spent before completion of development, equipment, electrical installation and railroad construction. The operations  are on much the same scale as engaged in by the Granby Consolidated  Mining, Smelting and Power Company  at Anyox and Hidden Creek, although  some of them are different in character.  Miles of road for use by -wagons and  automobile trucks have been built to  the millsite, four miles from Princeton, and a. sawmill that cuts 16,000. to.  18,000 feet a day has been installed.  Some excavating has been done for  foundations to sustain the great con-  (Contlnued on Pare 4.)

Dear Sir:—  In reply to your inquiry I take pleasure in testifying to the  dependability and hauling power ot my sturdy 1-ton Federal, which  has been on strenuous duty for six years. My truck Was used for  hauling 3-ton loads of coal for three years steady, and for hauling-  2-ton loads of gravel for two years steady.  During the year 1916, I drove.' my Federal from Portland to  Detrolct, and from Detroit back to Vancouver, covering the cross continent trip twice without serious trouble. Throughout the journey I  climbed grades ranging up to 87% per cent., and carried a light load  both ways. No other truck; as far as I know, has ever made this trip.  ' During' the past six months my truck has been hauling 2-ton  loads of wood, and Is performing good service at present.  Yours   very   truly.  (Signed)  JOHN F. BOUSKILL.

The trouble lies in the fact  that there are two roads between  the red bridge over the Stave and  the Dewdnej Trunk road beyond"  Maple Ridge municipality. The matter will .never be settled until'one  road has been decided upon and the  government money spent on that  road with a view to making it a perj  manent one. .- *   v r  '      NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS.,..!:  f ^FRASER   AVENUE'tPAVING.}''*  The .Commissioner for South Van-  ,couver is desirous'tbf^ receiving tenders for the laying.of a 2-inch carpet  of  asphaltic \concrete,  hereinafter " described chattels, " th'a'  mortgagees^ have instructed me to call  for tenders for the purchase of the  saw mills of Bulman Lumber Company, Limited, situate at Cushion  Cove, Salt Spring Island, and at Montreal Street, Victoria, B.
