Big Increase in Mineral

' silver producing provinoe ot Canada,
■. having made a larger autput ln 1926
.than Ontario, which tor many years
'has held the lead.   British Columlbia,
. too, also continued to be the largest
. producer   ln Canada   of lead, copper
'and sine.   The increase in the value
"... of  production in 1926 was made not-

A very definite i ndication of. a
healthy mining industry is the energetic carrying-on of both prospecting
and development of mineral properties, and-in this-respect 1926 was a
satisfactory year, states Hon. Mr. [
Sloan.'      •
The amount of (9,747,270 shown as
distributed in dividends during 1926
by no means represents the total net
profit* earned during that year, in
nearly all cases substantial sums are
sea aside trom profits to the credit of
surplus and reserve accounts; profits
accruing to. private companies and individual mining enterprises as a rule
are pot given publicity as dividends,
as' In the case with large com-panles,
so that no record of these profits,
which in the aggregate are considerable, ls available. Several companies
made substantial profits in 1926 but
did not declare any dividends.
It is interesting to note that of the
metallic mineral production of (61,-
863,634 in 1926 approximately 72 per
cent was produced as refined metals
within the province, 12 per cent was
produced for export as lead bullion
and blister copper, and 16 per cent
was exported as crude ore or concentrate. A email production of refined
metals was made at the Trail smelter
from imported ores from the United
States.

SUN'S WEEKLY TRAVELOGUE
The Poland of today still shows
the effects of the World war which
freed the country of political dependence on Russia. This ls especially
marked In Warsaw, the capital. The
porter who meets one at the train
was but yesterday a millionaire. Fantastic figures gave birth to fantastic
habits. Until recently no one asked
for change. With a mass of brain-
cluttering seres, lt was easier to deal
in round numbers. Then came the
zloty.worth a gold franc, 20 cents, or
1,800,000 Polish marks.
There were no zeros to throw
around and many travelers, likewise
reduced from the ranks of million,
alrse, prefer to carry their own bags;
hence there are three porters for
every Job. Eaoh must live froni the
proceeds of a day, two-thirds of
which is taken up in having his services refused.
As a droshky rolls up the blue-
coated driver in a leather cap hands
his number to a policeman, who slips
it onto one end of a broken ring. A
duplicate number hangs between the
shoulder blades of the cabby. When
an arriving passenger wants a carriage- a number is slipped off the
other end and the driver of that number wiiis the fare, according to the
flrst-come-flrst-to-aerve  principle.
Occasionally, when demand tor
dro-hkies exceeds supply, a number
never gets onto the ring, and instead
of a lot of tags representing idle carriages there is a queue of potential
patrons.
At the hotel a long succession ot
military heels, relief committee
boots and suit case salesmen's shoes
has reduced to paper thinness the
carpets' ' in which one once waded
through luxury. Exasperated guests
have killed flies against the wallpaper. Careless bacchantes cooling
their brows have broken the bottom-
out of the wash-basins. After years
of war and depreciation, funds must
be found to restore the hotel to Us
former state, On top of the necessarily high price -the municipality imposes an 80 per cent surtax, plus a
dollar for a passport each time one
returns to town.
Beautiful parks and gardens surrounded by dull, gray, depressing
streets are the flrst impressions
which Warsaw, the capital city,
makes upon the visitor.
The buildings are huge, impressive
because of their size butnot picturesque. Courled with heaviness of
construction there is a semberness
whose psychological effect is disheartening. There is nothing depressing about a country scene, even
on a night without a moon; but in a
city, with the sky shut out, darkness
weighs upon the heart
From six to eight every evening
young Warsaw parades the thoroughfares between Theater square and
the Saxon garden. Polish men are
supposedly vivacious. Polish women are reputed beautiful. For want
of adequate lighting, what might be
a brilliant concourse is a funereal
gathering wading through suoh darkness as weuld ruin Times square in
a single month.   .
The Poles are said to be the great
est dancers ln the world, but the
traveler seeking something peculiarly Polslh ia a public place finds an
oily-haired banjolst pursuing a couple about the polished floor and a negro trap drummmer tossing Ms
sticks in the air or coaxing a peculiar rattle froml his drum with a wire
fly-swatter.
The Polish capital has many
churches, massive and ornate, baroque outside and rococo within, full
of memorials to those Polish exiles
who did their work on foreign soil
and to whom.under Russian rule, no
public monuments oould be raised.
In the Church of the Holy Ghost,
in accordance with the great composer's with, the heart of Frederic
Chopin is burled. Business men enter witb .llrlet cases under their arms
and sit or. kneel beside peasant women with milk cans or vegetables pro
trading from their shawls.
Chic Polish women slide out Past
some stooping peasant in top boots.
On the broad front steps old men
and women in rags, a mother with a
baby at her breast, await the alms
inspided by brief conttvunlon with
oneself or God.
The streets of the capital are humanized by news stands with papers
ln several languages, excellent illustrated Journals, some innocent gaye-
ty and much nudity in silk stockings.
With the recent death of Joseph Conrad and Henryk Slenklewlsz and the
Nobel award to Ladislas Raymont's
"The Peasants," one might exepect a
considerable demand for the works
of these Polish literary lions, but ra-
cently translations of Henry Ford's
"My Life and Work," Morand's
"Lewis and Irene" and a Claude Far-
rere novel wer among the best sellers.
The Warsaw cigarette stand consists of a box which can be suspended from the shoulder and carried to
a location chosen for the .number of
potential buyers who pass at any
given hour! Brighter still are the
soft-drink or refreshment booths
with pink and yellow syrups, red and
russet apples, shiny rolls of chocolate and various types of breadstuff*.
There is a certain informality
abou the. markets of Warsaw. The
traffic in vegetables and flowers.chap-
lets of dried mushrooms, milk and
eggs, live and dressed poultry, juicy
pears and enormous English walnuts
overflows from the two market .halls
into the streets and courtyards on all
sides.
The practice of selling live poultry
in a country where cold storage con-
slstsof a long winter makes for a
more even market If, after having
twenty city women flnger over her
pet tender, the country woman finds
no sale for him, a twist of the wrist
ties him up ln her shawls and back
home she goes.
I Near the food markets fronts of
several buildings are draped with
piece goods, and across the road is a
dimly lighted shambles, where the
shoddiest of woven goods, comfortless- underwear, cardboard suitcases
and ugly finery are sold to those too
poor to profit from buying honest
goods.
North of these markets, watched
over by bulbous-bodied country women with cheery, honest faces, one
comes to the Nalewki, where Yiddish
ls the native jargon.
Warsaw's citadel, with ite overworked execution grounds and infamous Pavilion X, was built to punish the Poles for the November insur
rection of 1830. Povilion X has been
torn down. In it was the cell where
Pileudeki was imprisoned.
E
PARTY LEADERS
IN OKANAGAN
Vancouver, June 2.—On Thursday,
June *. the electors of North Okanagan will choose a representative ln
the provincial legislatureto succeed
the late Conservative member, Arthur O. Cochrane. The eyes ot all
British Columbia are upon the issue,
as the election promises to play an
important part in political history in
this province.
Dr. K. C. MacDonald, former Liberal member for the riding, was defeated at a by-election when he returned to his constituents for endorsation as the new provincial secretary. He is again the candidate for
his party, while W. F. Kennedy will
endeavor to keep the seat Conservative.
Owing to Premier Oliver's illness
and that of Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines and provincial secretary, the government is foroed to rely
upon the balance of the cabinet to
put up their light Attorney General Manson, Hon. J. D. MacLean
and Hon. El. D. Barrow are all ln the
fight, while other Liberal stalwarts
will lend assistance.
Tbe campaign marks the first active leaderipsh of the Conservative
party in this province by Hon. S. F.
Tolmie, chosen leader at the Kamloops convention last fall. He ls beting assisted by R. (H. Pooley, house
leader of the Tories; Grote Stirling,
M.P.; H. H. Stevens, M.P.; Leon J.
Ladner, M.P., and the following Conservative members of the British Columlbia legislature: J. W. Jones, Jos
hua Hlnchliffe, H. D. Twlgg, R. W.
firuhn and W. A. McKenzie.
The issue is all the more tense because of the present standing of the
parties In the house. Last session
Premier Oliver's forces controlled the
situation. There were 23 Liberal
memlbers against 23 of all other political faiths. In the event of a tie vote,
which never occurred, Mr. Speaker
Buckham'B vote would have decided
tbe issue ln favor of the government.
Sbould the Conservatives win North
Okanagan. on Juune 9, the house standing would be: Liberals 24, Conservatives 17, Independents, Labor and
Provincial 7.
Winnipeg, June 2.—Heavy rains
which were general over the whole
of western Canada, during May 23
and 24 interfered seriously with
seeding operations -which had been
vigorously resumed and it can now
be accepted as a fact that the acreage sown to yheat ln the west will
less than last spring. The extent of
the. decrease will vary according to
locality, but tiie Canadian National
railways' report that it Willi amount
to approximately 10 to 16 per cent
in Alberta, 16 to 25 per cent ln Saskatchewan, and from 20 to 30 per
oent in Manitobe.
JUBILEE
-TIME" CALLED ON DREAM
Obed Lucas, the 15-year-old son
of Dr. and Mrs. P. O. Lucas, Glen-
dale, Cal., went to bed suffering from
a slight attack of football fever and
ln his dreams he staged an entire
game. The game had to be called,
however, when young Lucas swung
a desperate kick at a phantom ball
and dented the wall of his bedroom
with his bare toes, putting a foot
temporarily out of commission.
TAKES CA! ROAD
New Westminster, June 2.—While
under probation on an order issued
by the Trail Juvenile court judge, a
youngster from the minlngcenter decided to see the world and boarded
the "rattlers" on Saturday after he
is alleged to have rifled his mother's
-purse.   The  boy,  who  was  blithely
whistling "My Little Grey Home In
the  West" when  P.C.  Ed  JJonston
handed   him   his    breakfast ln the
special   cell   at   the   police station
I Monday morning, made the mistake
' of   boarding   the   C.P.R.    train on
l which Constable Lande of Trail was
! a  passenger  bringing  along  a  man
{ committed    to the    Insane  asylum.
, The   youngster   was picked up and
, handed  over to  the  conductor.   He
returned  to  Trail  last  night under
the care of the constable   and   will
probably appear later in the    week
before the juvenile court judge.

A dozen goats were turned loose

years ago. The island today, known
as Guadalupe, is inhabited by 160,

taken over recently by a development which obtained a concession
from the Mexican government The

Confederation and After—Sixty Tears of
Progress
THE CHALLENGE OF THE NORTH
Since Confederation the wilderness
frontier of Canada-haa entirely shitted. Then the prairies, which now
sends a substantial representation to
the house oi comimons,, were known
only to Indians, fur traders, missionaries and a few explorers. The flrst
task ot the newly formed Canadian
government was to arrange for a
transcontinental railway to link the
infant settlements in British Columbia; and as astute men as Edward
Blake argued ernestly against the
folly of wasting money laying a railroad across such permanently Uninhabitable areas as the southern parts
of the present provinces ot Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. As
late as 1874 Sir William Butler wrote
a forbidding description of the site
of the present city of Prince Albert
to prove that Europeans could never
liver there the year rount.
The wealth and habitabdlity of the
southern prairies are now common
knowledge. Today the pust is north.
Northern Quebec and northern Ontario have attracted miners and farmers. Settlers are raising vegetables, grains, cattle and even fruits
far north of Hazelton on the Skeena.
Away to the north ot Edmonton the
fertile Peace River valley is rewarding its pioneers. The push to the
north ds continent wide, and is on ln
earnest. We dare not predict what
by the end of the century, will be the
population of those great central regions, which have all been proven
valuable.
. The Arctic and sub-Arctic plains
alone remain u challenge to the pioneer. Already, thanks largely to
Stefansson, this vast expanse is Ios*
ing mythological terrors. Here are
one and one-half to two million
square miles of grazing lands, -with
their native native mosses, lichens,
ferns and 762 species of flowering
plants. Yukon ls yielding her gold;
but in Alaska the annual catch of flsh
now far exceeds the products of the
mines ln value; and Canada's Arctic
waters teem with fish.
The reindeer Industry ln Alaska
has proved so profitable that Lomen
& Co. alone ship anualiy 10,-900 carcasses that bring a higher price than
beef In the cities of the United States
Inspired by Stefansson, the Hudson's Bay company has leased for
raising reindeer the southern halt of
Baffin island—an area the sise of the
British isles. If the project ot domesticating the musg-ox ds carried
out, a new source of food will be
available that will put to profitable
use great tracts of our far north. Oil
has been found between Fort Norman and the Arctic circle.
What else the far north will gives
only time can tell. But the Canadian polar regions are not as cold as
Siberia, which is being voluntarily
colonized. And as the climate of the
Atlantic coast once jreeented terrible
difficulties to the French colonists,
and yesterday that of the southern
prairies seemed an Insuperable obstacle to our fathers, so the belief, Ih
which we were brought up, tbat the
far north was an Impossible region
of perpetual snow Is fading in the
light of BOientlflc knowledge tbat the
whol of Canada Is habitable and productive. One of the greatest problems of the younger generation is to
discover ways and means of making
the north an integral pare ot Canada, instead ot the hinterland it has
been.

people who are employed in the very tall buildings and
who have fearful of the results in case of an earthquake,

height to correspond with the period of rocking of the
earth,.and therefore the structure receives the full force

coincide with the uwing of the earthquake, and hence it is
practically immune from danger.
Kllauea, on the island of Hawaii, as high as Vesuvius
and twice as wide, lies 30 miles from the sea in a mountain range wherein are three dead volcanoes* and one partially alive. This last, Mauna Loa, sends, from time to
time, streams of lava down its slope. iSon-te yeara ago
three streams burst forth from the Bides of this three-
fourths of a mile from Hllo, the chief city ot the island
There have been several outbreaks of 'Kllauea ln the last
century. In 1U840 there was a brlllant eruption ot lava,
the light of whihcc.h, lt was reported, could be seen a
hundred miles away. Where the lava flowed through the
forest lt left curious relics in the shape of lava arches,
bridges and great vases., These vases were formed by
the lava piling itself about some lofty tree trunks, burning away the wood within and killing tupper part ot the
tree. In the course of time seeds were deposited in the
open top, filled with decaying bark, until now there is a
gigantic lava vase holding ferns and flowers and vines.

The sacred lotus has been cultivated in Egypt tor at
least 5000 years and for many centuries wes used tin religious ceremonies and funeral wreaths. There has been
confusion among botanists and laymen for centuries as to
tbe identity of the true lotus of the Nile. Many have supposed that the sacred lotus of India and the sacred lotus
of the Nile were the same, but they are not The Indian
lotus has a pink flower, while that of the Nile has a blue
one. It was only with the identification of the flowers
used in the funeral wreaths of Rameses ill and Amenhotep
I that it was established that the true sacred lotus ot Egypt
was the blue water lily.

anything outlandish in an eel-rice dietary.

Blck at heart for want ot Children,
Ran before the Saint a Fellow,
Catching at his garment, crying,
"Master hear and help me!   Pray
That Allah from the barren clay
Raise me up afresh young Cypress,
Wwo my longing eyes may lighten,
And not let me like a vapor
Unremember'd pass away."
But the Dervish said—"Consider;
Wisely let the matter rest
In the hands of Allah wholly,
Who whatever we are after,
Understands our business best."
Still the man persisted—'Master,
I shall perish in my longing:
Help and set my prayer a-going!"
Then the Dervish raised hishand—
iFfom the mystic tHunting-land
Of darkness to the Father's arms
A musky Fawn of China drew—
A boy—who, when the shoot of Passion
In hiB Nature planted grew,
Took to diring, dicing, drabblng.
From a corner of the house-top
Ill-Insulting honest women,
Dagger-drawing on tne thusband;
And for many a city-brawl
Still before the Cadi summon'd
Still the father prays for all-
Day and night the youngster's doings
Such—the city's talk and scandal;
Neither counsel, threat, entreaty,
Moved him—till the desperate Father
Once more to the Dervish running
Catches at his garment—crying—
"Oh my only Hope and Helper!
One more Prayer!   That Ood, who laid, .
Would take this trouble trom my head!"
But the Saint replied, "Remember
How that very Day I warn'd you
Not with blind -petition Allah
Trouble to your own confusion;
Unto whom remains no more
To pray for, save that He may pardon
What so rashlypray'd before."

o4ncient History*
(COMPILED FROM TWENTY-YEAR OLD SClN PILES.)
Travel to Franklin has been quite brisk during the past
week.   Last Tuesday the stage took up nine pessengers. .
This week the Kettle Valley line commenced work on
the trestle where it crosses the C.P.R, track, near Le-
quime's sawmill.
The Oranby smelter resumed operations by blowing in
two furnaces on Tuesday morning, and two more were put
in commission on Wednesday.
The plans for the Kettle Valley line station, which is to
be built on Third strtet, between Winnipeg avenue and
Third street, have been completed and it Is to be built
at once.
Last week The Sun advertised the Premier of British
Columbia as lost. The next day word came from Paris
tbat he had been seen in that city. Obviously It pays to
advertise—even lf you don't ^ant to recover tbe article

The Scottish comedian Sir Harry
Lauder has a fund of laughable
stories with whieh he agreeably oc-j
cupies the pauses between his lilting
songs.   For example:
"Yon's   a   great   place,"   said Sir
Harry, speaking of a north country
town that he had been visltlng,"and
I had a great reception there. Everything was just great end the women
too—some   of them.   In one street I
while I was there a tramcar collided
with a i-pdlk cart; two cans were lip-
set Into the road, and the mjllk splash
ed across the street.. Soon a crowd
gathered.   A very short man—just a'
wee    bit   smaller that myself—was'
standing behind a stout lady, so that]
he couldn't very well see what was
happening.   When at last he did get
a glimpse of the milk flowing ln the
street be exclaimed:
"'Lumtqel   What a waste!'
"The stout lady turned and glared
at him.   'Mind your   business,'   she
sternly, 'and don't make personal -remarks!'"
QUITE A* DIFFERENT CASE
Finding; a patient in a very pessimistic mood one morning regarding
his chances of recovery, tthe young
doctor, says the Tatler, Btarted to
banter him in an effort to put hiin
ih a more cheerful frame of mind,
butwithout success.
"I don' t know why It is, doctor,'
said the patient, "but I feel 1 shall
never pull through."
"Nonsense, nonsense," replied the
doctor. "'Why, your case is absolutely the same as an illness I had
years ago, yet look at me , strong
and hearty as ever."
"Tes," retbrted the otber Ine,
hopeless tone, "but then 1 expect you
had a good doctor."

LONGFELLOW AND   DOM   PEDRO
Like King Arthur of Britain, Dotal
Pedro, the 1 aat emperor of Brazil,
was a "goodly king." Longfellow,
calling once at James T. Field's
house, told ot Dom Pedro's call upon
bim in the (Brattle street house in
Cambridge.
'Longfellow, says Mrs. Fields In her
diary, was ln fine talking mood. He
spoke ot the emperor's soldierly
though simple bearing, and ot hit)
coming to call upon htm after his
dinner. Lj
"Your majesty, I thank you for the
honor you have done me," Longfellow said as the emperor rose to go.
"Ah, no, Longfellow, none of your
nonsense," was the reply; let us be
friends together. I hope you will
write to me. I will write you flrst,
and you must promise to answer."
They walked down the garden path
together, and then Longfellow raised
his hat end stepped one side as the
emperor was about to get luto his
carriage. {
"No, no," protested Dom Pedro
laughingly; "there you - are at it
again."
SIMPLIFIED BOOKKEEPING    j
A young husband, says the Argonaut, finding that his pretty but extravagant wee exceeding their income, brought home a neat little account book and presented it tp heir
together wRh a hundred dollars.
'■Now, my dear," he said, "I want
you to put down on this side what I
give you, and on the other write
down the way it goes, and then I will
give you another supply."
A couple of weeks later he asked
for the book.
"Oh, I have kept the account all
right," said the wlte, "See, here
it If."

In; a. bulletin issued by the Chamber of Commerce of tbe United
States the purloin* and varying ways
by which the driver or owner courts
trouble are indicated.- The driver
who knocks down a street sweeper
ls worse off than the one who hits
an ordinary pedestrian. The owner
of the family car must answer, as a
rule, for what the family does with
it on friendly errands. To loan a
car to incompetent driver is to pay
the reckoning for what the incompe
tent driver does.
TheBe and other conclusions are
based on a series of court decisions,
which differ to some extent, according to the laws of the different
states.
Drivers of automobiles are bound
to take notioe of laborerers In tbe
streets and to exercise special care
not to injure them. A worker in the
stree^ is not negligent if so occupied
with his work that he does not watch
for approaching vehicles.
A motorist approaching a street
car which has stopped at a.usual
place to take' on or discharge passengers ls required to be especially care-
tpl for lhe safety of persons boarding or leaving the car. ITnder such
conditions tli© imposes a higher degree of care upon the motorist than
upon the pedestrian.
An automobile owner ls responsible for the conduct of his chaugeur
white performing thea business of
the owner. Between the owner of
the automobile and his chauffeur,
while the latter is engaged In the
owner's business, the. relation of
master and servant exists and the
rule of law applicable to that relation applies.
As a rule an automobile owner is
liable .for negligent** r-Msitlllng In injuries to a Riwst whllo'an occupant
of his car "Cbere are excejitlOU" li
this genenul rule. An automobthi
owner or dr'vo." may be reliove'd of
liability on account of nn Injury to n
guest when the guest ls guilty of
contributory negligence. If a driver
ih operating a car in a 'reckless or
dangerous manner and t he guest
having time and opportunity to protest makes none, he has no recovery
against the driver. This failure to
act is construed as contrlbptory negligence. ' Ordinarily a passenger in)
an automobile has no control over
its operation and is not liable for
the driver's'negligence, but a passenger who participates In the active
management of the car may be liable for the negligent conduct of the
driver.
In the absence of a specific statute, when an automobile owner
loans his car to another person, and
the borrower uses the car for his
own purposes, the owner ls not liable. It- has been held an owner ls
liable when he knowingly lends hts
car to an incompetent person, and
that person injures some one by negligent driving. The owner here Is
negligent in lending his car to this
type ot driver.

An inexperienced Englishman who
had applied for a job at a logging
camp was set to work to chop down
a big ilr tree. For a few minutes
tbe boss silently watched the fellow's
fierce onslaughts; then, smiling to
himself,, he walked away.
Two hours later he returned.
"Well.'-'-he said, "which way are you
going to fell that tree?"
The Englishman, who was perspiring ftt every pore, dropped the axe
and wiped his brow; then, scrutinizing the tree from top to bottom, he
asked indignantly, "What d'ye take
me for, a bloomin' prophet?"
"Do it now," also applies to a premeditated loaf.

Regina's New Hostelry
Supervising 800 Norwegian set-
tiers, including wives and children,
from the districts of Nottoden, Hed-
dal Bnd Valdres section of Norway. Eric Flatebo, chief elerk ln
the Canadian Pacific Railway offices at Bergen,' saw- the settlers off
for Winnipeg from the Windsor Station, Montreal, fifty of the party
ar" iroing straight to relatives. Mr.
Fl.-itcbo estimates that some 600 persons from the districts named will
eventually come to Western Canada.
Via Canadian Paeiflc Railway re-
c-ntly there was forwarded to Bit
Holiness the Pope an album of
photo-rraphs of the Canadian Reekie- offered by E. W. Beatty, Chairs-nan and President of the system,
following the suggestion made by
a prominent Canadian citizen who
had described the Canadian Rockies
to His Holiness in an Interview some
time ago. A wish for a book showing views of tbe mountains -was expressed by the Pope'whose wish ih
conveyed to Mr Beatty. The album
ia beautifully bound in white kid.
The latest addition to the chain of Canadian Pacific
Hotels, the "Hotel Saskatchewan," which was offi-
bially opened by President Beatty, on May 24, is a
modern hotel of a character in keeping with the 1m-
■ortance of the Capital City of tlie Province which
tarnlsheB 60 per cent, of the Dominion's wheat output.
Regina—"Queen City of the Plains," which has bean
npldly developing into one of the great cities of the
•eontlnent, has long felt the need of a flew hostelry. As
long ago-as 1913 tho erection of an hotel was actually
"rtarted, but when tlio War eamo a'ong this project was
•handoned, and the unfinished steelwork has remained
exposed ever since until lt v/as removed last year.
The removal of this old stcehvo.-k marked the first
step towards the realization so long delayed of Re-jiiia's
dream of a splendid new hostelry, which has at last
been brought about by the culcrprbe of the Canadian
Paciflo.
The new hotel waa conceived and designed with two
considerations alwaya uppermost In the minds of ita
creators; the maximum of comfort and convenience
for its guests and a pleasing architectural effect With
the desired result in mind the architects hare developed
a design which ls -singularly pleasing and which wil)
be regarded as one ot the most beautiful building* m
Western Canada.
The exterior of the building Is designed ln Qeorgian
style, the first two storeys above the street being meed
with Tyndale stone, quarried near Winnipeg. The
main entrance has been treated with Corinthian -pilasters.
The Hotel is an eleven-storey building, containing 116
bedrooms with baths, and many beautiful publio room*
and administrative offices. Two storeys with space
for more guest rooms have been left uncompleted.
One of the most pleasing rooms in the Main Lobby.
Is overlooking the Park. The-treatment ot this room
his a Spanish character, the antique decorated plaster,
ind'large carved fire-place giving lt a pleasing effect-
Tiie ceiling is heavily beamed and panelled.
The Ball Room, of a George Adams design, ls on the
first floor, as are also, the Lounge, the Library aad
the Writing Room.
The mechanical equipment ls of the most modern design, all thc services being practically self-contained.
The hotel has its own refrigeration and electrical
erating plants.
Canadian ilmenite ores will soon
be used In the manufacture of a
new pigment called "Titanium
White" (to be used in 'tii* same
way as white lead) according to R.
H. Monk, of Montreal, whb states
that plans are Bearing completion
for the erection of a plant in Montreal, and, lf everything develops aa
expected, this plant will be set up
in the autumn. The development
branch of the Department of Colonization and Development, Canadiaa
Pacific Railway, has been active ln
furthering the "Mtablishment ef thia
V-dustry.
