Tho warm sunshine mellowed the  breeze coming from the snow-tipped  mountains miles away. It was inot  too warm, nor was it cold until late  in the afternoon. It was a day  t'hiat alii could enjoy without overheating.  There were no special trains as in  days of yore to bring the' crowd and  to -give the celebration, spirit, and  the crowd gathered slowly. On the  'aurivat of the Armstrong band several selection's were given to enliven  .the occasion.  Promptly at 110:15, followimg several selections by the Armstrong  band., entnies'fo.r the children's races  were called /for. These were r.un on  Gill* Street and were participated by i  all children' not too busily engaged  sipping ice  cream  cones.

They  lacked the tight, smug .playing t'liac  wins, and cam be 'diovefoped. only by  hard practice and' rigid  couching.  Armstrong's team did'not show  up iio -advantage in the ���������������������������first few  times to bat, but when tho old 'heads  at tho game such as Sieol Fiislior,  Shaw, CadyVand Todd, tightened up  the, 'team and- started to bore, itihey  made a hard combination' to beat.  And yet It was the home team's  errors 'in fielding tlhal let them win  the 'game.  A lead of five up to the fifth dnni-  in'g should 'have cinched the game  i'or En'dierby but in the sixth and  .-,ever/.*'t tltfe visitors added, six runs  as a result of the home team's loose  :nfielc:\lg.

Charlie  Johnson pitched good balll early in  the game, but seerated to Hose Hieart  when tlhe ,10116101 ifailed to give the  support he should have 'had. It was  . only in the last of the game that the  visitors  hit  lliini   effectively.  Findlay Brash, behind the bat  stopped1 most of them, but iilad the  awkward' habit of stepplinig into tiie  diamond to throw to first or second.  This not onljilooked bad, but occupied time that sihoullid 'have been  given the ball. There were oltiher  plays of a simillar, nature .pulled off  by the home boys and. it was  these  scored;  Duncan andi Graham fanned  with  Liindslay  on third. o  Empke'hit to Reidiat second who  f'aiiled to 'hold "it.

'-The Empress Hotel, Victoria,  i "'B.C.  Half way from  Vancouver, on tha  Seventy-mile trip to Victoria, a warning  whistle  sounds just  before- tlie  steamer enters Plumber's Pass, a nar- ^_  row gap between two islands which $M  like a chain, fringe our' Pacific sea- fp|  . board.   It is from here onwards' that **-'*'  one   sees  the   real   beauties  of   tbe  Coastal   Belt   of British   Columbia,  scenery of    which one never    tires.  Here and there, .on the chain of islands, the vivid green' of alders or a  pretty   and  prosperous   farm   peeps  out from the sombre forest of firs.  The giant Mount Baker, whose Bnow-  .clad cone stands a landmark for 90  miles or more, now on our port beam  ehines    in   the   glittering    sunlight  above the rest of the cascades,- and  we see it all the way as it recedes  far-distant in the steamer's wake. To  our south and east.where the land  and sea seem to meet is the faint outline of the entrance of Puget Sound  on  whose shores  stand Seattle and  half a  dozen American  towns.    To  our   south aad    west, some   twenty  miles away, are the foothills of the  mighty'  Olympics, whose   glistening  white  peaks  tower  high  above  the  akyline.  The Straits, which"still" bear the  name of Juan de Fuca, are full  of traffic. Side by side we pass,  and dip our flag too, in passing, another of the Canadian Pacific Railway's palatial steamers���������������������������a tiny tug,  towing a.big boom of whole trees,  sv/ings''into,a little cove to .shelter  for the. night."

As  the  steamer  rounds the fruit  farms of Gordon Head, and clears the  point   that   separates   Cordova  and  Cadboro' Bays, a natural park of irregular  but   perfectly  spaced oaks,  forms the feature of the Island landscape.     Oyk Bay, Shoal, Foul Bay,  Ross" Bay, the last resting place of  the "old timers," are passed in turn.  Each with its own charm, delightful  homes in white and red, in light and  tan,   and a   variety   of  other' hues,  stand out from the remnant   of the  forest    gardens, many    a   blaze    of  brilliance,   green   lawns   grit   with  flowering shrubs, and, in;the, background, stately mansions, seemingly  fairy palaces, steeped in a maze of  marvellous    loveliness, *  recall    the  memory of a picture sprung from the  brain of some old master.

W>.   L.   Sladen,.  High Cost of Railroading  At     the  annual ' meeting  ot    the  shareholders of the Canadian Pacific"  Railway, held in Montreal, Mr. E. W.  Beatty,   President  of  the  Company,  -   stated that the annual report reflected vividly the situation prevailing ih  .���������������������������   respect* of th^ increased cost of opera-.  . tibh.    The  gross earnings?were the  ��������������������������� ' largest in the Company's History, exceeding those of .1918 by $19,391,362,  yet the net earnings were less by $1,-  569,351.   The large increase in working expenses showing a total increase  since 1917 of $38,-152,706 is a striking example of the effect of the increased cost of wages,and material  in spite of the Company's conservative and  economical administration:  While   it 113   gratifying that   even  witb these exceptional costs the Company had during "the past two years  earned fixed charges and usual dividends, nevertheless tbe^relatioiii*'between  earnings  and  expenses  must  now receive most careful consideration.    Tbe upward trend in costs of  tbe IsiBt    two years    has not    been  equalized  by  increases  in  th������������������ gross  earnings   and operating .economies.  The extent of the rate increases fixed  ' by  the   Dominion   Railway   Commission has not equalled- the increased  costs   recently   forced   on   all   Companies.    Between 1914 and 1919 the  working   expenses   of  the   Company  had    climbed   from     $87,38S,000    to  $144,000,000.    an increase of    64 p.c.  Within tbe isame period the increases  Ln    freight     and     passenger    rates  amounted in actual fact to 30 p.c. in  =freight=rates=and^-10-=p.c.=in=^passen-=  ger rates.   Thus during the past five  .years    the  percentage    increase  in  operating  expenses   was   double  the  ��������������������������� percentage  in tolls accorded to tbe  Ijtailway Companies.  1    Owing to the parity of conditions  ,existing  between  the   United   STatos  jand Canada, the Canadian roads during the war had to accept the high  jwage   scales made   effective   under  iGovernment    control    of    American  roads and also to continue operating  under  similar    tariff tolls.      Tbese  J tariffs  were  entirely   inadequate  aa  .results in the United States clatrly  demonstrated.     Recent     lefis'-ation  him assured    American carriers    of  ���������������������������rates  whicb   will   return   fixed  percentage on  tbe ralue of the undertakings  used  in  the public  service.  ThLtJ will mean a reconsideration of,  and increase in the rates now current  in the United States.    No doubt the  necessity of rate adjustment* will be  given  earnest  consideration  by  th������������������  Government and the Dominion Railway Board.      Such readjustment   is  amply warranted both on tbe ground  of the value of service rendered by  the carriers and the cost to tbem of  performing  such  service.  The rates in Canada should be determined having regard to the cos*  and valueof services, and the legitimate needs of the railway companies.  The properties of the Canadian Pacific are in excellent condition aad at  no time in its history has It been  better equipped  to perform Its  lm-  Jiortant public services or to play its  ull pe/rt ln the advancement of the  transportation future of Canada.  1 The irrigation project in Alberta  haa-������������������) dereloped 643,526 acres by  means of 8,969 miles of irrigation  Attoheev ������������������t   * construction coat   of  Sip, 186.348 and operation costs of  $1,761,268. S-iccees of-tbe-irrigation  block will, it is hoped, lead to the expansion of irrigation projects under  Federal or Provincial Governments,,  thereby diminishing the danger- of  crop failure in irrigated districts:   --���������������������������--.  The-value  of  any. enterprise" depends oh the ability to progress and  on  the maintenance of- high  credit'  necessary to the development.   Rail-'-"  ways must, be enabled to keep pace  with the.progress of'the country, by .  expanding the facilities, constructing  necessary new" lines ,and   suppiying.-  the public  with adequate efficiency'.  and comfort in service.      The  rail-;.:  way net earnings of the Company for!  1919 represent a return of only four;.  per cent, on the actual .cash invest-'  ed in the railway itself.     A nominal-  surplus of $844,249-has been placed.-  in reserve to meet the special  taxation imposed  by the Dominion .Gov- '  ernment.      The   fixed  charges   and  interest on  the  preference stock   of  the Company are low and the dividend ,  of seven  per cent payable on the common  stock'  from   the   railway   earnings is moderate.   _. Any corporation  conducting    so  extensive   an-   enterprise   must    have   reasonable  f-'sur-.  pluses.      Yet  the' surplus- after  the"  deduction of the  fixed charges   and -  the dividends amounted to" less than  half of one per cent, of" the   gross  earnings.     Revenues, therefore, during tiie past two years were obviously inadequate.      Rates should be established  which represent a fair re- _  turn^fo"r-ithe="seTv:ce renclerellVPrciBTs^-  earned by a Company's efficiency and  economy and  by  the  character  and  extent of the  equipment and  facili-  t'.-.T. should not be confiscated, nor  should the revenues accruing to one  Company from service well performed be taken  to supplement tbe  revenue of a competitor less successful.  The   theory   that    the   rates    be  not  Increased,   but   that   the   deficits   bo    ,  met  from  general    revenues   of, the  Company  is    economically   unsound  and discriminating against the public  in favor of those using railway facilities.      The   Company's   equipment  Trust Issue of $12,000,000 was secured at highly favorable interest rates.  The  amendment  to   the   Company's  Charter  permitting  the  increase  of  tbe number   of the  Directors   from  fifteen to eighteen Is purely empowering.  Immigration to Canada is anticipated on a large scale, and while retrenchment and financial conservatism are wIeo, the Company's Directors have the same implicit faiib in  the future growth and the prosperity  of the country as before, and the.  same confidence in tbe Company's  ability to play an important part in  its development and prosperity.  Four retiring directors. Sir John C.  Eaton. Mr. Grant Hall, Sir Vincent  Meredith, Bart, and Sir Augustus M.  Nanton, were re-elected.
