Branch Lines in the West
The next few years will witness great activity in branch fines' railway
tonstruction in Western Canada, judging by the Canadian Nalional Railways
programme covering the next three years/recently outlined to Parliament
by ilon. Charles A. Dunning, Minister of Railways, coupled 'with the
intimation that has been given that the Canadian Pacific also plans extensive branch lines building in the West, although, at the time of writing, the
details of their programme have not been made public.
Canada is well equipped with main lines of railway; so well equipped
���in fact that the statement is frequently, made that the Dominion has overbuilt in this respect. These main lines run east and west, carrying the
products of the West to Ontario, Quebec, the Atlantic and the'Pacific coast,
and bringing to the prairies'the* manufactured goods'of the east, and llie
fruit, fish, lumber of British Columbia, as well' as the imports coming
through our seaport cities.
But in order to make these long main linos profitable from an operating
.standpoint, there must be a veritable network of branch'lines "to feed them.
It ia in the West that these feeders are mostly, needed, and whore the
possibilities for securing new and larger traflic is most promising.
There is another lack in the West, in the railway situation as it now
exists, ancl that is in the matter of lines running north and south connecting
ihe several east and west main lines. Branch line construction in more
recent years has been planned so as to not only provide feeders'to the main
lines, but through a gradual linking up of these branches bring about connecting lines running in a, generally north and south direction.   .
Branch line construction in the West must, in the future-, huA'e still
another main objective in mind. The. Hudson Bay Railway is being pushed
to completion, and .by; the end of the year steel will almost if not quite
reach to the Bay terminal. By the West, this--railway is regarded as a main
lino,���a direct Western route to tidewater and the markets of Europe. If
this route proves to be-what its advocates claim, for it, then in the not now
distant future millions of bushels of Western grain will move north which
must now find ah outlet cither to the Atlantic or the Pacific.
Our existing network of main and branch lines must he provided wtih
direct connection with the Hudson Bay Railway. Its success requires this,
and the people demand it in order that they may enjoy maximum benefits
wdiich the new outlet should provide. -..*..
As the southern ^terminus of the Hudson Bay Railway is in Saskatchewan, it naturally follows that the initial work of providing direct connection with it must be done in that Province through- the building of
certain brandies which will have the effect of linking up existing lines with,
the Bay road. The building of such lines are included in: the C.N.R. programme recently announced. It would, be a mistake, however, to regard
these as purely Saskatchewan branches. They are just as important and as
essential to Manitoba and Alberta as they are to the Province in which they
must actually be���b.uilt.      .**,..-.���*
The construction of these, connecting branches may also prove au
important, factor in effecting a complete change in transportation matters
and development in this whole western counlry. Lacking any northern out-
Jet to the sea, those products of Western Canada which do not go east to
the Atlantic or west, to the Pacific, are forced to move to the south, that is,
to the United States, to Minneapolis, Chicago, and thence to Buffalo or New
York. ';[[_'
With the opening of the Hudson Bay outlet, and the connecting of our
existing railway, systems with the road to the north, not only will our own
western products find a shorter outlet, but,i instead of Canada shipping to the
-sout.h,^nroducts^of^the^nori,h3vest&rn__-states_7vvin.  because  of these direct
���connections and shorter haul, move northward through Cariada, providing
additional traffic for our railways, and adding to the volume of business over
-the Hudson Bay Railway. ���
The appropriation of over $5,000,000 for construction work on :the
Hudson Bay Railway, and of an even larger sum to be expended by - the
Canadian National in the next three years on branch lines in Saskatchewan
to connect existing lines with the Bay road, and to Provide direct connection
for Manitoba, Southern Saskatchewan, and the northwestern states with
the Bay, marks a new era in railway ti-ansportation in the West and in the
development of .-the',, whole, prairie section of^ the Dominion,

Over 21 Million Jars Used Yearly
Reduced Strengtli of R.C.M.P.
Now Fewer in Number, But Work
Has Greatly Increased
Commissioner Starnes of the Royal
Canadian Mourned Police, in bis annual report to the Minister of Justice,
draws attention .to the reduced
strength of the force, and a marked
increase in the number of eases dealt
wiih. The strength in 1926 was S76,
and 2S.000 cases were handled, while
in 1920, thc strength was 1,500 and
10,000  cases were  disposed of.
Speaking of the Arctic work, the
commissioner referred' to "the urgent
need" for a new posHu Baffin Island,
"and I am under pressure, to establish
several additional detachments
among the aboriginal inhabitants."
As the result of the northward drift
which is in progress, the number of
men in the far North has been nearly trebled.
The commissioner states that a
real emergency has arisen in th'e appeal to his force by the customs department for police officers. He
points out that more than $72,000 was
collected by the force in revenues
for various Government departments.
Farm of the Future

For the products of farm animals

"with immense profit."

Noiseless Construction
Buildings   May    Soon-  be-   Erected
Silently With Electric Heat
Thc steel frame of a five-storey factory has just been completed in Sharon, Pa., without arousing the entire
town from, its morning slumber or
testing its nerves. ThoTe were no
maddening blows of pneumatic riveters delivered with the noise and rapidity of machine gun in action and no
picturesquely dangerous tossing *" ol
red-hot rivets into a skilfully manipu
lated barrel a hundred feet away. Sixteen experts wearing goggles noiselessly fused beams and girders together with the intense heat of dazzling electric arcs.
It will be recalled that lho arc-
welder was applied with brilliant success by American engineers iu repairing the disabled machinery of interesting German ships during the war.
At Sharon the same apparatus was
used for the first time in erecting the
frame of a largo building.
The Sharon structure must be tested for strength, and the comparative
costs of riveting and welding mus;
be established, before w.e may herald
the day when skyscrapers will be silently erected with electric heat. But
it augurs well for thc noiseless future
that 100 tons of steel (one-eighth the
amount that would ordinarily have
becn required) were saved by arc
welding and that Sharon's historic
five-storey factory has a'si eel frame
of unprecedented lightness and stiffness for its size.

Naval Base at Port Royal
Shifting of Naval Base From Bermuda
to the Caribbean Sea is Under
Establishment of a naval base at
Port Royal and the reduction in
status of Bermuda, now the chief British naval .base in southern Atlantic
waters, are reported to be under consideration by the British ' Govern.!
ment. The reported shifting of tho
navaL.base from Bermuda to the
Caribbean Sea would give Great Britain a naval station direc!ly south of
the American base of Guantanamo
and. in the pathway of the "Panama
Canal. Plans call for the conversion
of Port Royal into an airplane, hydroplane and submarine base, it is said.
All island forts will be manned by
natives. Bermuda, it was said, will
consequently be considerably reduced
in status as an important. British naval station.

Origin of Domestic Fowl
Boulain Fowl Resemble Indian Gams
Birds of Today
Chickens were first brought into
North America' by settlers in tho
United Slates who obtained the birds
from Europe. They'were of the small
Mediterranean typo noted ' for their
laying ability and .it 'was*.from this
type that the present day.small heavy
egg;laying breeds developed. ,
It is claimed by- some that ��� the
domestica'ed fowl. of ��� today 'descended, from the wild'jungle of ancient
India. Although it is contended" thai
this is not true-in lhe case of (ho
larger type of fowl, like the' Cochin
breed, it is agreed to in regard to tho
smaller -egg-layers. The Indian
jungle fowl,of ancient times was ol'
ihe. build of the present day bantam
and in coloring 'greatly . resembling
the Indian game birds of today.
In regard to 1he hatching of birds
it is claimed that the Chinese practiced artificial incubation of duck
eggs at a time-when the ancestors of
the present -European races were
gnawing raw bones " and living in
caves. Egypt Was also noted for her
early' breeding, of   chickens   in   the
May Create Demand
For Canadian Pulp
Large Quantity of Sulphite Required
by Japan's Artificial Silk Mills
It may indeed be seventy years before the full value of the natural resources of Canada are known. Every
day, however, new values are being
found for Dominion produce.;.The forests that   clothe   this   vast   domain
may even one day clothe the dapper,
though shc dress in the most shim-

sorts of material is   used   to '���������make
what passes for silk, and Ihe Chinese
silkworm has an actual competitor in
Japan today lo which Canada can be-1
come a   profitable   accessory.   Japan
has in operation artificial nilk mills

This  is  not  an  Interesting 'newspaper prophecy born in thc brain or

Indeed pulp for artificial silk making
iu Japan has hitherto been obtained
entirely fronr foreign    sources    and
amounts   annually   to   about   10,000
tons,    writes    Trade    Commissioner
���Tames A. Langley Kobe, in the government's    Commercial     Intelligence
Journal.   This quantity ��� will   be   increased lo 16,000 Ions when the present projected artificial silk mills .are

planning to manufacture this grade of

Sir Jchn Macdonald Suggested Name
"Kingdom of Canada" Before
There is something.unique and unexpected in  the revival at  this late
dale by a Western Progressive member, Mr, Garland, of the old idea of
calling his country lhe "Kingdom oi
Canada." u may   not   bo   generally
known that, this utle was put.forward
by Sir John A. Macdonald during the
negotiations leading to Confederation.
Sir John was   quite   eager   for   the
namo    Kingdom    and    pressed    his
claims during the drafting-ol the British  North  Ameiica  Act in  London
early in 1SG7.   The sixth draft of the
bill contained the title "Kingdom of
Canada," replacing the words "United
Provinces" of the preceding draft, and
Sir John made every effort to retain
the monarchal term.
The change to Dominion of Canada was mado at ,Mio instance of
Lord Derby, then Foreign Minister;
vho, as Sir John said in 1SSD in a
letter to Lord Knutsford, "feared the
first name would wound the sensibilities of the Yankees." Sir John in the
same loiter defended his proposal,
and said that, had it-been accepted,
he was sure fhe Australian colonies
would "have been applying to be
placed in the same rank."
It is doubtful if, after sixty years'
use of the word "Dominion," there
will be found any good reason for a

about a foot thick in waste paper
and the attendants began the all-

France, Norway, Greece, Ireland,
Portugal and South Africa. Great
Britain took 39,291,763 bushels or
31 per cent., of the total exports
from the Port, being also the heaviest purchaser ��� of oats. Norway
and Holland were the two largest
buyers of rye.

more money in the country than the
greater harvest and somewhat higher prices-of 1925, according to N. M.

Steamship Company, and owner of
a hundred country elevators in the
West, with one other-city elevator
now being built at a contract cost
of $800,000 at Fort William. Mr.

123,000. An outstanding feature of
travel has been the development of
tourist third class accommodation,
Approximately 7,100 passengers of
this kind were carried eastbound
across the Atlantic from Canada
and 8,650 transported westbound
during 1926, making a grand total
of this kind of travel of 15,750

Northern Ontario has 2,600,000
square miles of mineral lands, of
which only 7 per cent, has been exploited; and yet this seven per cent,
has already produced metals to the
value of a billion dollars. Such was
.the summing up of George C. Bate-
man, Secretary of the Ontario Mining Association, speaking before the
Engineers' Club. "Twenty years
ago," he reminded his hearers,
"Northern Ontario was practically
an unknown wilderness. Today it
is' the centre of a large and growing industry."
