It was  a glorious victory.    The Robb bud

the credit for the result.   And   this conclu
sion is probably correct, aithough other progressive measures of the Liberal policy must
have influenced the electorate.
It is to be hoped that the vote last Tuesday
buried the loyalty question forever. It never
had any business in Canadian politics. No
party can claim a monopoly of real loyalty to
the empire. Mouth loyalty, which is a rather
low grade variety, seems to have lost its prestige with the people of this country. Real
or practical loyalty consists in doing something that will raise the power and glory of
Canada, which is ne of jhe greatest units of
the empire. This loyalty can be rendered by
a political party or a private individual—by a
bank manager, a railway president or a day
It is too bad all but one of British Columbia's delegation should be seated on the opposition benches in the next house. This

benches their voices would carry more weight
with the government.

And thou in turn shalt give to me
A verdant eouch upon thy breast
To shield me Irom day's fervid glare

But counts hor strings of jewels o'er,
And thinks the pearls have slipp'd away.

for many years been
president, announced the change of
name a few days
ago, that one horse
and , wagon and
seven agencies had
increased to over
4700 agencies scattered all over Canada and to the far
corners of the earth
while fleets of motor
vehicles bearing the
name of the company plied the
streets of all the
Drincinal  cities   of
the world, and the Dominion
Express had established a name in
financial and transportation circles
that was universally honored. The
change was made, Mr. Stout said,
in the hope that in other countries
where the name and services of the
Canadian Pacific are better known
and more extensively advertised and
where, to a very large extent, the
credit of Canada is one with that of
the parent transportation system,
such good-will as is held by the rail
and steamship company will reflect to
the advantage of the express company.
Mr. Stout and his few assistants
had a hard up-hill fight in those early
days. It is interesting to know that
the president of a large express company in the United States turned
down an opportunity to place his
service-, on the Canadian Pacific
because, in his opinion, the railway
would shortly go under the auctioneer's hammer'
The new express company had not
only to move traffic but to help create
it. In those days the management
was a free agent in naming rates. At
that time, it was possible to and the
company did make low rqtes to encourage the farmer, the fruit grower
and the fisherman without great
regard for the cost or the profit of the
moment. It whs also free from the
necessity of extending unprofitable
rates to others not requiring them,
and had power to withdraw unprofitable rates when they had served

the purpose for which they were made.
In 1884 operations were extended
from Rat Portage to Port Arthur and
a traffic route formed using steamers
between Owen Sound and Prince
Arthur's Landing as Port Arthur waa
then called. This arrangement continued until the eastern and western
lines of the company were joined on
the north shore of Lake Superior.
To develop traffic in advance of the
laying of Canadian Pacific rails, the
express company went ahead by
means of wagon
stage routes some of
which served the
public for a number
of years. Shippers
will recall the Ayr-
Paris and Brantford route, a- which
was opened in 1892
and continued as
a stage route until
1903. Other stage
routes in the east
continued for
twenty-five years
and the same thing
took place in the
w^st where very
frequently lake and
river steamers
took the place of the
stage. It waa in
1895 that the company first engaged
in the money order
business which

Pure beer

f7*J*HE Amalgamated Breweries of British

make for the people of British Columbia
shall be pure and wholesome. No care is spared,
either in the selection of materials or in the
processes of brewing, that will guarantee pure
Each of the five companies associated in the
Amalgamated Breweries maintains laboratories
where continuous analyses are made, as a check
on the methods of brewing and on the finished
product. The Government also, through the
Liquor Control Board and in the interests of the
people, regularly examines for quality all the beer
sold in British Columbia. But that is not enough.
A further check is provided for the Amalgamated
Breweries by absolutely independent tests made
frequently by reputable public analysts upon
request, and by means of these reports the beers
of the various breweries are compared for purity
and general quality.
A report has just been made by the well known
firm of Macdonald & Macdonald, inspecting and
testing engineers of Vancouver and Victoria, on
beer made by the Amalgamated Breweries. This
report indicates the high quality of the beers sold
to the people of British Columbia.
For instance, after noting that In the
, beer tested the original extract in beer
wort was high—14.21 per cent.—that
alcohol was 4.37 per cent., .that "extract" In the beer was 5.88 per cent.,
and that there was a complete absence
of foreign substances, the report goes
on to state:
.... beer is of excellent
quality, as the above analysis
plainly shows."
The Amalgamated Breweries are .sensible of thc obligation
placed upon tliem to provide the best and purest beer
for thc people of llritish Columbia. Whether you purchase
beer by the glass in licensed premises under Government
supervision or by the bottle at Government stores you
receive a healthful and beneficial beverage.
The members of the Amalgamated Brewers are: Vancouver

Wcatsttlnslcr Brewery Ltd., Sliver .Sprint! Brewery Ltd.,
and tbe Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer

over the signature of E. N. Todd,
