SESSION OF THE
CITY COUNCIL
Mayor and Clerk Are Authorized to Sign the
Contract With the West
Kootenay Company
The mayor and all the aldermen
were present at the regulai meeting
of tbe oity counoil on Monday evening.
Ad explanatory letter was read
from the West Kootenay Power &
Light company, aod after discussion
it was ordered to be signed on behalf of the city and the letter attached to it.
A letter from the B. C. Underwriters' association requested a map
of Grand Forks. Clerk instructed
to forward tracings to have tbe map
printed, the cost to be borne.by the
association.
A delegation consisting of representatives from the Oddfellows and
Knights of Pythias lodges inter
viewed tbe counoil in regard to tbe
care of the cemetery. Tbe council
decided to base charges for care of
graves at |2 per plot for the present
year, and a joint committee consisting of a member from tbe cemetery
committee and a member each from
tbe Oddfellows and Knights of
Pytbtaa was appointed to take
cha'rge of the work at present. It
was also decided to employ *• competent caretaker, to devote bis full
time to the work, and the olerk was
instructed to call for applicants for
the position.
The chairman of tbe water and
light committee reported progress on
the repair of the city pumps.
The matter of using water (or
sprinkling, etc.out of the prescribed
hours was discussed, and the clerk
was instrucded to issue a special
warning.
Tbe matter of checking up taps,
water for sprinkling, etc., it was decided to leave to a competent person, who is to proceed with the
work at once.
The council approved the recommendations of tbe police commissioners, that silent policemen be in
stalled on Bridge street at First and
Seoond, and on Winnipeg avenue
at First, Second and Third streets,
and tbat the fine of 12 under the
pound by'aw be rebated to B. Dompier owing to unusual circumstances,
and that a notice be inserted against
riding bicyoles on the sidewalks.
Tbe mayor wished to known
what city property mig. t be available for fair grounds and a baseball
park. Tbe olerk was instructed to
furnish a list of properties suited
for this purpose.
The matter of the water rights on
Mill creek and Hill creek was again
unker discussion. Tbe mayor aud
city clerk were appointed a committee to take up the matter of
purchase with the Granby company
and if it was found necessary the
committee was instructed to interview the Granby officials in Vancouver.
The eleotric ligbt bylaw was reconsidered and finally passed, and
the tax sale and the motor traffic
regulation bylaws passed their third
reading.
The city counci. took the
safe side of the street when it
decided to install silent policemen. Had silent policewomen been installed, it is a
safe bet that they would either
have broken silence or exploded.
Tomato Culture *
for Short Seasons
There|are mnny districts where the
season Is too short to warrant tomato
growing on a large scale. * Enougb
tomatoes may be grown, however, to
meet domestic grounds, and those of
a local market. When this olass of
soft fruit has to be shipped several
hundreds ot miles, as is often the
case, and has run the gauntlet of
commission bouses, jobbers, whole
salers aod retailer*, by the lime it
reaches lbe consumer it is a very
questionable commodity. This condition, plus freight and express
charges, does not conduce to a
healthy demand, hence the advisa
bility of home grown fruit whenever
practicable. Where the seaeon Is free
from frost between June 12 and September 20, it is quite possible to
bave a good supply of fomatoes if
attention is paid to detail, and the
plants receive tbe care they need at
the proper time.
Sowing tomato seed (for planting
in the open around June 12th)
sbould take place during tbe last
week in March or tbe first week io
April. This should be done in shallow boxes in tbe hotbed. The soil
used should be a com posit of good
friable loam with ao admixture of
decomposed barnyard manure, or
leaf mould and sand in such proportion tbat it will not set hard. Sow
the seed thinly and evenly, cover
lightly with soil and give a good
watering. The seed sbould germinate in about ten days, and from this
time on the plants sbould have as
mueh air as can safely be given to
ensure a good stocky growth. When
the rough or true leaf appears, which
will be about fourteen days after
germination, the seedlings sbould receive their first transplanting into
flats, about two inches apart each
way. The soil for this should be
mucb tbe same as tbat in which tbe
seed was sown, but not quite as fine.
Shade lightly for a day or two from
tbe bright sun, but do not coddle
unncessarily. Do not overwater.
See tbat tbe roots get it only when
needed.
By May 12 the plants should be
ready for their second transplanting,
(his time into the cold frame. Prepare a site by treadidg a piece of
ground firm. On this place tbe box
of your frame and introduce tbree
inches of good soil, consistiog of two
parts loam and one part rotten manure. Make moderately firm aod set
your plants in tbis six in jhes apart
each way. Shade is necessary for a
day or two. Remove the lights entirely on all favorable occasions.
Safeguard at night by adequate coverings. Pinch out all side roots as
they appear.
The field position should, if possible, be one sheltered from rough
winds,but open to sun and air. Heie
the plants should be set as soon as
danger from frost is past. Let tbe
rows be three feet apart, with' tbe
plants 12 inches apart in the rows.
By pushing a spade under the plants
it will be found tbat tbey will bring
away all tbe soil in the bed with
tbem, and will receive but little, if
any, obek. Stake with short stakes
—two feet is ample, and give their
first tie as soon as planted. Tbe
firBt truss of bloom will be in evi
dence at thiB date and fhould be retained. Once a week go through
your plants and remove all side
shoots and distorted bloom, as the
latter ooly produce cull fruits. As
s joo as the second truss of bloom is
visible pluck out the terminal point
of your plant, leaving one leaf, be
yond the second truss. The second
and last tie should now be given.
Your mature plant will therefore
consist of about nine leaves and two
trusses of fruit.
Keep tbe boe going, but not too
ueeply. If irrigation is practiced  so

mucb the better.asby a regular sup
ply of moisture you will be able to
reduce cracked fruit to a minimum.
Ripe fruit may be looked for early
in August, and tbe plants, if reasonably well cared for, sbould, in a fair
season, yield from two to four
pounds of ripe-fruit each.

FOSTER'S FORECAST
Washington, May 22.—This continent is now well into tbe new crop
weather conditions that will control
during the 1922 crop season, which
will be favorable to at least two-
thirds of North America.
Northwest—North of 36 latitude,
between meridan 90 and Rockies'
crest, colder tban usual last ten days
of May; great fall in temperatures
May 21 to 29; severe storms during
week centering on May 26; cool
wave will pass eastward along latitude 45; frosts will threaten near
May; warmer last days of May. See
first paragraph.
Pacific Slope—North of latitude
36, west of Rockies' cre-*t, tempora-
tures, rains, storms will fluctuate
much as in Northwest, but two days
earlier. Fair crop weather last ten
days of May, but probably not sufficient moistore for best results.
June Forecast—Generally good
crop weather in at last two-thirds of
North America. Particularly good
corn crop weather, but too mucb
rains for early harvests iu parts of
middle aud southern states and on
southern slopes of tbe provinces,
Unusuatly severe storms during
weeks centering on June 4 aod 24.
Temperatures averages near normal.
A shortage of rain in Europe will
attract attention.
NewsoftheCity
The Dominion forestry car, containing exhibits of the products of
the forests, whicb is on a tour of
the western provinces at present,
arrived in the city last Saturday
evening and remained, here until
Sunday evening for the pnoiic inspection. Tbe exhibit, whioh is in
charge of G. G. Blyth, proved to be
of absorbing interest, and the car
was thronged with visitors while it
remained at tbe C.P.R. station,
There were samples of all kinds of
manufactured wood,one of the most
interesting exhibits being a number
of samples of cloth made from wood
fibre. The moving pictures thrown
on the screen in the evening illustrating modern methods of fighting
forest fires were enjoyed by botb
old and young.

The Empire day celebration oo
Wednesday was very successful from
the standpoint of drawing out the
people of the city and the surrounding district for a day's outing. The
UBual program of children's and
adults' sports was carried out on
schedule time. The city band waB
one of the main features of the celebration, and it had a big following
of admirers.
Work on the irrigation system ie
progressing very favorably and rapid
headway is being made. Several
miles of pipe have already been
laid. The manufacture of concrete
pipe for No. 1 unit will be completed in about a month,and if there
iB not too much delay about installing tbe pumps, the system should
be ready to commence pumping
operations in July.
Hon. John Hart, minister
of finance, has called for tenders on a new issue of $2,-
000,000 British Columbia
bonds for irrigation and soldiers settlement development,
says a dispatch from Victoria.
The bonds will carry 5 per
cent interest and be payable
in both Canada and New
York. Tenders are asked on
five and twenty-three year
terms.

Ottawa, May 22.—In a

Can't Poison Hens
"Chickens and the wild gallinaceous birds seem to be practically
immune from tbe effects of strychnine. JuBt wby they have thia immunity ie a point to be learned. Extensive field operations and operations carried on in the laboratory
by the Canadian government, the
biological survey, and the public
health ..service show that a quail
weighing not over five or six ounces
will eat witb impunity enough slrycb
nine poisoned grain to kill squirrels
weighing in the aggregate twenty
pounds. In our extensive operations
in the western states against injurious rodents, we have distributed
over 5000 tons—165 carloads—of
poisoned grain. Although the assistants carrying on this work are skilled
in finding dead animals, up to the
present we have been unable to find
one single game bird destroyed by
our operations. It mar be of interest to you to know tbat we have
further safeguarded the birds by
using barley and - oats instead of
wheat as a vehicle. At the present
time tbis grain is rescreened bo as to
remove all weed seeds wbicb, wben
poisoned, might be taken by small
seed eaters." So writes tbe United
States biological survey. This is in
agreement with Jobn Burroughs'
statement that "You can not poison
a hen witb strychnine."
* A great many harsh things

A lecturer was talking on the

"Now, supposing a pail of water
and a pail of beer were placed on
his platform, and tben a donkey
was brought on, whicb of the two
would he take!"
"He'd take the water," came a
voice from tbe gallery.
"And wby would be take the
water?" asked the lecturer.
"Bee use you would beat him to

agreement, and suggested
that reductions should first
should only apply to basic
commodities. The commodities which he suggested might
take a lower rate were grain
and grain products, coaj,
lumber, cement, ores and pig
iron. The statement made a
favorable impression through'
its very candor.
Admitting that rates must
come down, Mr. Beatty said
it was merely a question of
method as to how this should
be done.

FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1922
Bringing lectures of leading professors of
the world's greatest universities to the little
schoolhouse by w reless telephone—that is but
one of the developments of the near future.
Every schoolhouse in the country can become
a college. Boys and girls can receive lectures
via radio on various subjects, may take examinations and receive diplomas. This can be
done in the school or it can be done in the
home. Mathematics, science, literaiure, history, art—all can be taught by the authorities
on these subjects through the medium of the
wireless telephone. These possibilities already
are foreshadowed in experimental courses
given by different radio colleges throughout
the United States. Ii fact, most of .he colleges alreapy have transmitting stations with
which they are now conducting experimental
work along these lines. And have you noticed
the youngsters are accepting all these radio
discoveries with perfect equanimity? It's
funny, but nevertheless natural. They take
them for granted. It is their day.
The people iij this country live too hard and
too fast. The chances of death after fifty
years of life are increasing instead of decreasing. In the last twenty years the death rate
during the first five years has been greatly
lowered, but for the later years of life it has
not. It is poor economy to educate and train
business men and women only to lose their
services to the community and state when
they reach middle life. People are interested
in health largely because they are afraid to
die. The true motive for health should be
efficiency and not the mere prolongation of
life. The results obtained by our census sho w
that the death rate at practically all ages is
higher for men than for women and the women
showing the lowest death rate are those living
in rural communities. For both sexes rural
dwellers show a lower death rate, age for age,
than for persons living in cities. Comparing
ourselves with the following countries, England, Australia, Denmark, France, Germany.
Holland, India, Italy, Japan, our expectation
of life both for men and women is less favorable than in any of the countries mentioned.
Tht>bloody "terror" of the, French.' revolu
tion caused the legal execution of 17,000 persons and the death by other means of per
haps two or three times as many more. What
of the Russian terror? The Paris Gaulois publishes figures concerning it that "would "seom
ncredible if it were not said that they are
aken from the reports of the extraordinary
{commission painted in the soviet newspapers.
Since October, 1917, there have been executed,
says the Gaulois, 28 bishops of the Greek
church and 1215 priests,',677Ji professors and
school teachers, 8800 physicians, 54,650 army
officers, 260,000 soldiers, 10,500 police officers
and 48,500 privates in the constabulary forces,
12,950 landowners, 35.5,250 other members of
the "intelligentsia" and of the middle class,
193,350 workingmen, 815,100 peasants. If the
statistics are trustworthy, the Bolsheviki, in
order to force an unwelcome and impossible
system on the Russians, have killed more men
than were killed in the French army during
the entire war.
The truck growers of the sunny South and
California evidently believe that their mission
in life is to supply the whole continent with
fresh vegetables all the year round. Florida
now ships on the average one carload of pro
diice every eight minutes in the year, yet has
under cultivation only about an eighth of
thc land in the state that is suitable for farm
ing.
Wc all should like a cook such as an English clergyman advertised for in the London
Times. In his advertisement he said among
ether things that it was essential not only
that his cook sliould have a sense of h.unor
but also that she should exemplify the spirit
of (Jalatians v, 22. \ ow, Galatians v, 22, reads
thus: "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy,
peace, long-snfiering, gentleness, goodness,
faith."

"I believe college should first of all be a
place of scholarship," says Dr. Robe.it J. Aley,
president of Butler college. "I believe our colleges get their support from public and private
sources solely because scholarship is the dream
of the college, It seems to me there are many
things going on in the life of the people everywhere that would convince us that the ideal
of scholarship in our colleges is not as big an
element as it ought to be. The search for truth
that should be the business of every college
should develop faith and reverence for truth.
The average college, because ef the faith people in it and because of the ideals for which it
stands, is in the public eye more than any
any other single institution in this country.
The college ought to be the one place above
all others in which respect for the law is developed. Part of our crime is due to the fact
that some cultured people take a peculiar attitude toward the law. They observe some
laws and violate others. A violation of any
law breeds contempt of all law. I believe the
college has it in its power to remedy this condition to a large extent by inculcating a reverence for law, whether it be the law of the
institution or of society "

Statistics recently compiled show that
British Colnmbia has more telephones to
population than any other province of
Canada. It is to maintain this enviable
record that extensions of outside plant
and central office equipment are constantly being made, and this year large
expenditures are planned. Facilities for
adequate telephoning are always kept up
to top notch, with the result that our

The Grave of a Canadian Poetess
TOURISTS from all over'thc world appreciate the
beauty of that oorner of Stanley Park, British
Columbia, where are buried the ashes of Canada's In
dian poetess, Pauline Johnson. In the shade of thc
great trees, within sight of the Siwiwrti Bock, tt is one
of tlie ideal spots of that peerless natural woodland,
and has been marked by a simple temporary 'stone
loBed im place. To catch the spirit of her songs that
Canada's love for her Indian princess may have on
during expression a permanent memorial -vill shortly
beareeted.
Ilie memorial will take the form of a rustic, antique fountain, to be erected from moss covered stone*,
gathered from the park. The water will flow through
fills granite protection aa a natural spring, and fall
lato a pool at the side with the added ehexm of water
UlBes In tiie pool. The head stone will have a life
■ise reproduction of the head of the poetess, while on
ths wast side will be emblems of her legends, showing
tba flint and feather. The "flint and feather" is an
emblem, rieh in Indian associations. "Flint" suggests ttie Bed man's weapons of war; it.is the arrow
Up, the heart quality of the people. The "feather"
is Hie oamle plume tJu-t create the head of the warrior

iweymr^ml'^ (slumbia
and feather bear the   hall marks   of my Mohawk
blood."
On the oast side of tho fountain will be carved a
canoe and paddle. Thie will be significant ae a representation of the sp'rit of the "song my paddle sings,"
one of the sweetest songs penned by tho princess. It
reads:
"And up in the hills against *he sky.
A fir tree rocking its lullaby,
Swings, swings,
Its emerald wings,
Swelling the song my paddle sings."
The eyes of tlie figure will be foeussed on tho
stream of water, and Beneath the carving will be the
name "E. Paulino Johnson," with thc date of birth
and  death.
The plan promoted by the Art, Historical and
Scientific Society of Vancouver, of establishing an Indian village im Stanley Park, will prove unique ia
Oan&da. It will breathe an .individualism redolent with
iisnociations of the "evergreen coast," and of ths
early history and legends of our country. The idea of
the society is to bring an entire old-time Indian village, with its many totem poles, lodges, council chambers and customary features, and place lt in Stanley
Park.
It will perpotuato for all tone the splendid and ancient history of some of the early native coast Indians, constituting the original pre-histoiie Inhabitants
of British Columbia, now only the remnant of a dying
race. There are a few remaining villages, now in danger of decay from long disuse, silently nestling at secluded northern coves along Uie Paeifie coast. There
is evidence of stately pomp and grandeur about ths
large lodges and spacious council chambers with their
numerous heraldic totem poles. The society hopes to
obtain an ample number of totem poles, chief's regalia, "coppers," a metallic insignia of hereditary office and other panoply, dancing masks, robes, talking
stioks, huge muek-a-muck bowls, war canoes, carved
door jambr., aod H-ntoh, roof trees, medicine men's

MontroaL — Twelve Esquimaux
dogs which the owner values at
125,000 passed through Montreal.
They arrived from Portland, Maine,
at Windsor Street Station and later
left for their home with the pack of
their brethren kept at Laka Placid,
New York, by Jacques Suzanne, an
artist and painter. In an interview
Mr. Suzanne Baid that some of the
dogs came from Siberia, some from
Greenland, and some from Alaska.
The youngest was aged 14 months,
and the oldest 18 years. The dogs
were engaged continuously for three
weeks in the wilds near Portland,
Maine, in moving picture scenes for
the picture "Love and the Law," by
James Oliver Curwood, in which
Zena Keefe is the star. The dogs
drew two sleighs, sometimes conveying two people in a sleigh, and went
through some exciting drives in
their work on the picture.
•All the dogs looked beautiful
specimens of their kind. Pointing
to tha best looking of them Mr. Suzanne said, "That one could draw
half a ton over the level snow." One
of the animals was used by Peary
in his last dash to ths Pole.

GROWTH OF CANADIAN SHIPPING
Strong Policy in Immigration Now Necessary
. By E. W. BEATTY I
(Resident Canadian Pacific Railway
One of the most interesting features in Canadian development during recent years has been the
growth of the shipping facilities
for Canada's overseas trade and
traffic. An indication of this can be
•een in this year's returns from the
port of Montreal, which show that
up to the close of navigation 980
vessels had docked there, as compared with 654 for the previous season. The shipments included more
than 140,000,000 bushels of -Train,
an increase of nearly 100 per cent.
over the previous highest figure,
that of 1914. •
The prosperity of a country depends upon the ease with which ita
produce can be marketed, and in tiie
case of Canada, which exists so
largely on overseas markets, the
conditions of trade are undoubtedly
governed by the facilities for transport. The development of shipping
sufficient to insure the speedy conveyance of passengers and freight ia
therefore of vital importance, and
accounts for the steady increas- in
tiie size of the Canadian Pacific
fleets on both Atlantic and P. otic
OCB&Tlil
Can Ships Pay Their Way?
The phenomenal growth of Canada's Mercantile Marine during the
last few years has been taken as
indicative of the country's progress.
There is danger, however, in a too
rapid growth if the increase ias not
been directed along commercially
profitable lines. What we have to
consider is whether Hie new tonnage
is justified by the country's production, whether the ships are suited to
the kind of traffic available, and
whether they are the kind of ships
that are likely to pay their way.
If those factors are not taken into
consideration, we may find that a
portion at least of Canada's large
mercantile fleet is the kind of asset
popularly referred to as a "white
elephant."
A statistical comparison of Can
•da's mercantile marine over a
period of years is apt to be misleading unless we thoroughly understand
what these statistics represent. In
a letter written in .1851, addressed
to Earl Qrey, then Colonial Secretary in Britain, Joseph Howe, the
distinguished Nova Scotian statesman, remarked:
"The best criterion of the
comparative civilization of
countries may be found in the
growth of commerce and the
increase of a mercantile marine.
Tried by this test, the North
American Provinces will stand
comparison with any other portion of tne Queen's Dominions.
"The West Indian Colonies,
the Australian group, Including
New Zealand, the African
colonies and the East Indies, or
the Mauritius and Ceylon, owned collectively in 1846 but 2,128
vessels, or 42,610 tons of shipping. The North American
group, including Canada, Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Prince Edward
Island, owned in that year 5,119
vessels, measuring 393,822 tons.
Of these, Nova Scotia owned in
tonnage 141,098, and in number
more than the other four put
together, or 2,583."
Canada's Place in Shipping.
In 1863 tiie British American
Provinces stood fourth in thtj
world's shipping, with 7,101 vessels'
totalling 842,643 tons. In this year
alone 602 vessels totalling 224-314
tons were built in the Canadas and
the Maritime Provinces, only 9,000
tons less than the tonnage built in
the United States, which, moreover,
in that year purchased Oanadian-
built vessels to the value of $9,000,-
000. The highest tonnage on the
Cnnadian register previous to the
great waT was reached ln 1878, with
a total of 1,888,015 tons net. These,
however, were still mostly wooden
iSailing vessels, and under the competition of steamers and trade depression, the tonnage had dropped
;by 1902 to less than 60 per cent, of
!that total, or, to be exact, 662,618
tons.
I It was not till 1900 that steel vessels began to appear to any extent
on Canadian register, and not till
1918 were steel vessels in the ma-
Ijority, thc figures being 4,866
steamers out of a total .of 8,568 vessels. On October 31, 1921, there
were 8,322 vessels on Canadian
l-Tegister, of which 4,465 are steam-
,«rs, the gross tonnage of these 8,-
»22 vessels being 1,760,570 tons.
Evolution in Ships.
I The large tonnage of British
'North American ships in the middle
M the nineteenth century is, however, deceptive, unless one analyses
"the character of the trade in whieh
the vessels engaged. The Nova
O"«H»0 ships, In particular, were
.Bunt of soft wood, iron and copper
fastened, and, unlike the more sub-
■tantial and more expensive Bntwi-
,tmilt ships, we** not always destined for a long life. They carried possibly a cargo of Nova Scotia lumber
Ao   England,  then   reloaded   with   a
trgo for South America and tramp-
i ta and fro on many oceans wm-

out seeing their home port again till
they were practically used up- The
steel steamer of today is built for
a longer life, and tonnage involves a
greater initial cost.
High Cost of New Ships.
In the case of tiie mercantile fleet
built for the late Canadian Government, the cost was high, and represents a hectic element In our maritime progress. It is indeed a mystery
why construction of so many of
these ships was undertaken after
the armistice. Contracts were given
by the Canadian Government to
Canadian shipbuilders for cargo
ships in January, 1919, on a price
basis of $200 a ton, at a time when
the Canadian Pacific was being offered by the British Ministry of
Shipping any number of cargo ships,
well adapted to the requirements
of Canadian trade, at $100 a ton,
and actually purchased two at that
price. Now the experience of Canadian ship-owner*- has bcen that
cargo ships ar* a speculative invest,
ment unless they are operated as
supplementary to a regular service
of combined passenger and cargo
steamers, when they may come in
useful as an adjunct to regular
liners when more business than
usual is offered.
The Government cargo steamers,
contracted for after the armistice,
seem to have been built without any
particular trade in view and without
ths support of a passenger service.
Unless their initial high cost is written down, they must be run at a
luss, except during periods.of high
freights, and high freights are certainly not welcomed by any country
looking for export business.
(.overrunent Ships Tramping.
Experience has shown that for
Canadian trade the ideal ship for
Atlantic business In the steamer
which will combine passenger and
freight business in a certain proportion. This accounts for the construction of the new one-cabin type
of .ship such as the Montcalm, with
a gross register of 16,000 tons, a
speed of 16 knots, a capacity of
1,5C0 passengers and five or six
thousand tons of freight. Of the
thirty-five steamers plying for the
Canadian Pacific on ocean service,
only nine are cargo ships. Although
some of these Government steamers
are run on regular lines, where there
is some prospect of a cargo both
ways, a large percentage of the fleet
has been forced into tramping without any particular benefit to Canadian commerce, although the tonnage may swell the Canadian
register.
Passenger  Traffic  Awaiting.
The increase in tonnage credited
to tiM steamship companies carrying on regular service, particularly
where the liners are passenger
steamers, is in another category.
The natural development of Canadian shipping under present contli
tions is undoubtedly in the field of
passenger traffic, rather than cargo
vessels. In the first place, Canada's
crying need is for more population,
particularly of the farming classes,
and over in Great Britain and
Europe there are hundreds of thousands of good settlers eager to come
to this continent if only the doors
aTe not shut in their faces. In the
second place, owing to Canada's
geographical position, the St. Lawrence route in summer and the port
of Vancouver all the year round
are ru «. -favorable position to attract
large passenger traffic to and tnrn
the United States, with its hundred
million population, as well as to and
from Canada itself. Th* St. Law*
rence route enables Atlantic steam,
era of reasonable speed to cross
the Atlantic with only four daft
open sea, while the comparative-if
short distance between Vancouver
and Yokohoma has given the Cana«
dian liners a substantial time handicap over their competitors using th*
longer southern routes. |
Growth of CP.R. Shipping.
The total tonnage of ocean-gohat
lake and river steamers which will
carry the Canadian Pacific house-
flag in 1922 will be only a few ton*
short of 600,000, or nearly din*
times as large as the great Spanish
Armada. This is in spit* of th*
fact that the, Canadian Pacific lost
tonnage by enemy action during th*
recent war to the extent of 101,081
tons.
The growth of the steamship interests of the Canadian Pacific is
significant of the contribution mad*
by that company toward th* progress of Canada. Starting with •
fleet on the Pacific, the railway entered the Atlantic trade by purchasing 15 vessels from the Elder-Dempster Line in 1902 for $7,500,000. Th*
dial.*. Jt conditions in steamship
iUiluess is illustrated by the fart,
that this sum today represents ths,
cost of one single new vessel destined for the Pacific trade, the Empress'
of Canada. In 1906 the Empress of;
Britain and Empress of Ireland wer*
added to the Atlantic fleet. In 1918
the .Pacific service was strengthened;
hy thc Empress of Russia and Empress of Asia. Two steamers of til*:
on* "Cabin" type, the Metagama
and the Missanabie, were added in
1914, followed in 1917 and 1918 br:
th* Melita and the Minnedosa, but:
the chief increase was due to th*
taking over of the Allan Line fleet
of 18 steamships. The year 1923.
will see the addition of several fin*
passenger steamers for both At-,
lantic and Pacific service, ths Empress of Scotland (24,684 tons),
which will be the largest vessel ln
the Canadian trade; the Empfess of
Canada (22,000 tons), built for ths
Pacific service; the Empress of Aus-'
tralia (19,.*.00 tons); the Empress
ofsjndia (17.052 Ions), and tha
Montcalm, Montclare, and Mont-'
rose, each of 1G,000 tons.
Heavy  Expansion in Year.
This represents an addition of
130,000 tons to the Canadian Pacific
fleet in a -single year, and should
convince the most pessimistic th t
the directors of one Canadian enterprise, at any rate, are looking forward to increased trade and traffic.
That traffic, however, can only
continue to mnke progress if Canada
pursues a broad-minded immigration
policy and does not shut her doors
against thc settlers anxious to com*
from overcrowded Europe, and
work upon her vacant lands and undeveloped resources. The Imperial
Government during the past year
has spent a hundred million dollars
in doles to unemployed, a large percentage of whom were recently living on the land. At the same time
less than ten per cent, of our available agricultural land in the West is
under cultivation. Surely there is
an opportunity for shipping here to
transfer the worker to a place where
he can work and thus benefit both
the Old Country and the new.
There are few men wbo wouid
walk 630 miles to witness a football
match or matches. One sueh enthusiast, however, exists. He tramped
from Cardiff to Newcastle to see tbe
game between Newcastle United|and
Cardiff. He tben walked to Liverpool to watch hie team play there.
Roughly tbe distances are; Cardiff to
Newcastle 340 miles, Newcastle to
Liverpool 123 miles, Liverpool to
Cardiff 170 miles.
