TPHE mountain ranges of British Columbia, the
Switzerland of the continent, are traversed for
500 miles, from east to west, by the main line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. From prairie to Pacific
they are magnificent, and at every turn some peak
looms up or some valley is revealed that evokes admiration and awe. Variety they have, variety of scenery
and variety of interest; the tourist, the climber, the
man of science and the artist are alike satisfied by this
sea of mountains.
At Banff there is the beauty of the valley, shut in
on every hand by fine ranges; and the charm of the
river, flowing through woods of sweet-scented pine or
cutting its way between miniature canyons.
At Lake Louise is revealed the beauty of the snow-
field, lake and pine.
At Field the pass is grandly beautiful. The Kicking Horse River swirls by between barrier heights,
Mt. Stephen on the one hand, and Mt. Burgess on the
other, and in the distance the jagged, snow-bound
peaks of the Ottertail and Van Home ranges cut the
The tarn with its peaceful waters charms at
Emerald Lake. Giant peaks are stationed round its
shores ; thick woods clothe its strand and it sleeps for
ever amid its stately sentinels.
The cascade is seen in its most wonderful form
in the Yoho Valley. The Takakkaw Fall leaps 1,200
feet, a shimmering sheet of spray and mist. Endowed
with life it seems, the crowning glory of the lovely
deep-cut valley into which it springs. Interior Views, Banff Hotel. ftft
Banff Hotel.
At Glacier is the beauty of the wilderness. From
high up the mountain side the Great Glacier comes down,
and on every hand peak crowds on peak. The Arrow
Lakes, the Crowsnest Pass, the canyons of the Fraser
and the Thompson, the Burgess Pass, too, are beautiful, each in its own way, and until all have been seen
the wonders of the mountains have not been exhausted.
In its mountain hotels the Canadian Pacific Railway has brought the luxury of the city into the heart
of the everlasting hills by placing charming hostelries
here and there.
Banff Hotel, the largest, is built just above the Bow
Falls, where the Bow and Spray Rivers unite in the
shadow of Mts. Rundle and Sulphur. Magnificent
views are obtained from its verandahs, pleasant drives
may be made through the picturesque Bow Valley,
while excellent pony trails have been cut to many of
7 the nearby summits. The hotel is a mile and a half
from the station, embedded in pine woods. Sulphur
springs provide water for drinking and bathing purposes of great value in rheumatic and kindred affections.
Lake Louise, two and a half miles from Laggan station, has been enlarged from a small, but comfortable
chalet to a first-class hotel. Its windows face the
wondrous Victoria Glacier, the other two Lakes in the
Clouds are but two miles away, and Paradise Valley
and the Valley of the Ten Peaks may be reached by
enjoyable trips on horseback.
Banff Hotel Ooach.
Mt. Stephen House, Field, lies near the base of Mt.
Stephen, one of the grandest of the Rockies, and is
open the whole year. It is the central point of the
Mountain Hotel system, and is reached in a few hours
by rail from the other resorts. Moreover, expeditions
may be made from it to Cataract Valley, Lakes O'Hara
and Annette, the Ice River Valley, Emerald Lake and
the Yoho Valley. Beautiful drives may be made from
it to Emerald Lake and towards the Ottertail Range,
and the curious Natural Bridge is only one of the other
neighboring points of interest. Emerald Lake Chalet, seven miles from Field,
affords the comfort of a hotel with the cosiness of a
farm house. It stands on the brink of a quiet tarn, and
from it parties are outfitted for the famous Yoho
Valley and the Takakkaw Fall. The trail over the
Burgess Pass gives some magnificent views and the
fishing in Emerald Lake is excellent.
Glacier House remains open the whole year, and is
enlarging for the second time this winter. From it the
Great Illecillewaet Glacier may be reached in forty
minutes' stroll and other expeditions may be made
among the grandest of all the mountain scenery.
At Revelstoke, Sicamous and North Bend are other
first-class houses which form excellent headquarters
from which beautiful scenery may be visited or splendid sport obtained.
The Hotel Vancouver, at Vancouver, stands in the
first rank of city hostelries.    It is situated on one of

stationed, and with their skilled assistance many notable ascents have been made by some of the most
famous mountaineers in the world. They are at the
disposal of all and are ready at all times to introduce
tbe novice to the fascinating world of crag and glacier,
col and cornice.
For those who do not aspire to such lofty heights,
trails have been cut up the lower mountains, and to

12 the chief points of interest. Nearly all the regular
excursions may be made from the hotels, on foot or
horseback, in a day or less, and for the longer
expeditions everything—guides, ponies, tents and outfits— may be procured at the hotels.
To ride through the forest, to come out here and
there on a lovely view and at last to reach a point at
which  peaceful  tarn,  broad  valley  and  mighty  peak
Victoria Glacier, Lake Louise
unite to form a landscape of indescribable beauty is
to imprint on the memory scenes years will not efface.
Of all the wonders of the mountains the glaciers
hold first place. The most accessible is the Great
Glacier of the Illecillewaet, close by the station to
which it has given its name; a mighty river of ice,
seamed and split in every direction.
13 Interior Views, Lake Louise Hotel.
14 Paradise Valley.
To the scientist it is a glacier, moving downwards
remorselessly six inches a day; to the Alpinist it is a
pathway of ice to be followed or crossed with caution
and a rope.
The ice is veined like marble. A stream of clear
water hurries down a blue channel, and disappears in
a bottomless chasm, the sides in the depths a deeper
blue. The glacier is split and cross-split by crevasses
and the whole world seems of translucent blue. Blue
are the pinnacles, blue are the recesses and blue strata
form the islands into which the ice is divided. Once
the crevasses are passed, the summit of the glacier is
reached and a great field of snow—the neve—stretches
for miles into the mountains, glistening pure and white
in the sunlight.
The Rockies and the Selkirks traversed, most
people will continue to the Pacific Coast, after perhaps
15 stopping for a few days at Golden for the trip up the
Columbia, at Revelstoke to see the charming Arrow
Lakes or at Sicamous for the beautiful scenery and
splendid fishing of the Shuswap Lake and the Okanagan Valley. The Thompson and Fraser Canyons
afford a magnificent exit from the mountains, and
even during the hundred miles from Yale to Vancouver
the heights are still in sight.
The Valley of the Ten Peaks.
Vancouver is a prosperous city, the terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, the port of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Empress Steamship Line to the Orient,
of the Canadian-Australian Line to Hawaii, Fiji,
Australia and New Zealand, and of the British
Columbia Coast Service of the Canadian Pacific Railway  to   Seattle,   Skagway   and  Alaska.     The   Hotel
16 Cathedral Crags.
Vancouver offers splendid accommodation. There are
many beautiful drives in the neighborhood, and the
salmon canneries at Steveston are well worth visiting.
Victoria and Seattle are reached from Vancouver
by the superb twin screw Canadian Pacific Railway
steamer, "Princess Victoria." It is the fastest commercial steamer on the Pacific, and is fitted up most
luxuriously. From its observation room in the bow
an unobstructed view of the lovely archipelago of the
Bay of Georgia may be obtained. The route lies
through lanes of water hemmed in by rocky islands,
some of almost the dignity of mountains, others mere
rocks awash with the tide. Woods clothe them to the
water's edge, or fine bluffs end them abruptly, while
afar off the snow-crowned pyramid of Mt. Baker,
14,000 feet high, looms through the mist.
Victoria is reached in four hours and the steamer,
winding in through the tortuous harbor, comes to its

buildings, close to which is the site of the Canadian
Pacific Railway hotel, now under construction. Half
a mile away is Beacon Hill Park, from which a beautiful view is obtained of the jagged Olympian Range
across the Straits of Juan da Fuca. The city itself,
with its irregular streets and pretty residential quarters,
bears a distinctively English look, and three miles to

squadron of the Royal Navy.
Seattle is another four hours' steam up Puget
Sound, and from there the main line of the Canadian
Pacific Railway may be regained via Mission Junction.
19 Takakkaw Falls, Yoho Valley.
The summer climate in the mountains is an ideal
one for tourists.
It is delightfully cool.
It is pure, dry and invigorating.
It is free from dust.
The days are long.
The valleys, in which the hotels are situated, are
all over 4,000 feet high, and this ensures a pleasant
coolness. At Banff the average summer temperature
is 23*4 degrees lower than in Washington, D.C, and
the mercury in the mountains seldom rises higher than
75. Walking in such a climate is most enjoyable, driving is not too cool, while a secluded corner on the
verandah is the very place for a cosy chat or a) quiet
read. Many people camp out for weeks at a time,
and find it neither too hot by day nor too cold when the
sun goes down. Shade is abundant at noontide and a
couple of blankets are ample protection at night.
The air is wonderfully pure and dry. No large
centres of population, no factories full of grime and dirt pollute the atmosphere; but the winds sweep for
hundreds of miles over forest and mountain, meeting
nothing to take from their freshness. Such air is most
invigorating and seems to endow the muscles with new
strength. In such a climate a man can eat and sleep
well and his nervous system is braced up as by a
powerful tonic.
There is no dust in the mountains. There cannot
be.    The hotels of the Canadian Pacific Railway are

The Canadian mountains are very accessible. The
main line trains of the Canadian Pacific Railway reach
them from Montreal in three and a half days, and may
be joined from southern points at many different
places. Moreover there is much to interest the tourist
in the trip.

Whatever route is followed the journey is full of
interest. The Province of Ontario bears on every hand
signs of prosperity and progress and many thriving cities are passed. Along the shores of Lake Superior the scenery is bold and impressive, and as the
train skirts the water's edge numerous bays of great
beauty are opened up. If the lake route be taken, the
tourist cannot but notice the immense amount of
shipping and the splendid equipment of Fort William.
At Winnipeg he will see a city destined to be the great
commercial centre of the North-West, and from there
to the Rockies he will traverse 900 miles of agricultural
and ranching land, the like of which is not to be found
elsewhere in the world.

While the perfect sleeping and dining car service of the Canadian Pacific
Railway furnishes every comfort and luxury for travellers making the continuous overland through trip, it has been found necessary to provide places
at the principal points of interest among the mountains, where tourists and
others might explore and enjoy the magnificent scenery.
The Company has erected at convenient points hotels, which, by their
special excellence, add another to the many elements of superiority for which
the Railway is famous.
at St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, the popular Atlantic Seaside Resort, is situated on
a peninsula five miles long, extending into Passamaquoddy Bay, which is
seventeen miles long by six miles wide. Good deep sea and fresh water fishing may be enjoyed; the roads are perfect, making driving and cycling most
enjoyable. The facilities for yachting and boating cannot be surpassed, and
there are golf links that have no superior in Canada. The attractiveness of
St. Andrews-by-the-Sea brings people seeking rest and relaxation from different
parts of the Continent.
The Algonquin Hotel, on which a large expenditure has recently been
made, in improvements, offers every modern accommodation for tourists.
The hotel rates are from $3.00 per day upwards.
is situated at McAdam June, N.B., and offers the visitor in search of sport a
choice of routes through the whole province.   It gives him, too, an outing at a
summer retreat, free from the heat and crowds of the fashionable resorts,
whence the hunting an.I fishing grounds are easily accessible.
The rates are from $2.50 per day upwards.
at Quebec, the quaintest and historically the most interesting city in America,
is one of the finest hotels on the continent. It is fireproof, and occupies a
commanding position overlooking the St. Lawrence, its site being, perhaps,
the grandest in the world. TheChateau Frontenac was erected at a cost of
over a million of dollars. Great taste marks the furnishing, fitting and decorating of this imposing structure, in which comfort and elegance are combined to an unequalled extent.
Rates, $8.50 per day and upwards.
at Montreal, is a handsome new structure in which are combined a hotel and
station.   The building which faces Place Viger is most elaborately furnished
and modernly appointed, the genera] style and elegance characterizing the
Chateau Frontenac, at Quebec, being followed.
Rates, $3.00 per day and upwards.
at Fort William, the western terminus of the Lake Route and of the Eastern
Division of the C.P.R., is an excellent, well appointed hotel in every respect,
which offers many unique attractions as a vacation home for those in pursuit
of rest and recreation in the picturesque region at the head of Lake Superior.
The hotel rates are from $2.50 per day upwards.
anew hotel erected at Mooce Jaw, in the Canadian North-West, at the junction
of the Soo-Pacific road with the main line of the C.P.R. The hotel is modernly
appointed and elegantly furnished.
Rates, $3.00 per day and upwards.
at Banff, in the Canadian National Park, on the eastern slope of the Rocky
Mountains, is placed on a high mountain promontory 4,500 feet above the sea
level, at the confluence of the Bow and Spray rivers, and is a large and handsome structure, with evrey convenience that modern ingenuity can suggest,
and costing over half a million of dollars. While it is not intended to bea
sanitarium, in the usual sense, the needs and comforts of invalids are fully
provided for. 1 he Hot Sulphur Springs, with which the region abound, vary
in temperature from 80 to 121 degrees, and bathing facilities are provided by
the hotel. The springs are much like those of Arkansas, and the apparently
greater curative properties of the water are no doubt due to the cool, dry air
of the mountains.
Game is plentiful, and Lake Minnewanka, not far away, a mile or two in
wTidth and fifteen miles long, affords excellent sport in deep trolling for trout.
Guests at Banff Hotel, Lake Louise Hotel Mt. Stephen House, Emerald
Lake Chalet and Glacier House, desirous of mountain climbing, may obtain
the services of Swiss Guides.
The hotel rates are from $3.50 per day upwards. CANADIAN PACIFIC HOTELS—Continued
This quiet resting place in the mountains is situated on the margin of Lake
Louise, about two miles distant from the station at Laggan, from which there
is a good carriage drive, and is an excellent vantage point for tourists and
explorers desiring to see the lakes and the adjacent scenery at their leisure.

is a pretty chalet-like hotel, recently enlarged, fifty miles west of Banff in
Kicking Horse Canon, at the base of Mount Ste t hen, the chief peak of the
Rockies, towering 8,000 feet above. This is a favorite place for tourists,
mountain climbers and artists, and sport is plentiful, Emerald Lake, one of
the most picturesque mountain waters, being within easy distance. The
newly-discovered Yoho Valley is reached from Field.
The rates are $3.00 per day and upwards.
is a Swiss Chalet, situated on the margin of Emerald Lake, near Field, and
affords splendid accommodation for those wishing to remain at the Lake,
or who intend visiting the famous Yoho Valley, to which excellent trails
lead from this point.

is situated in the heart of the Selkirks, within thirty minutes' walk of the
Great Glacier, which covers an area of about thirty-eight square miles.
The hotel, which has recently been enlarged several times to accommodate
the ever-increasing travel, is in a beautiful amphitheatre surrounded by lofty
mountains, of which Sir Donald, rising 8,000 feet above the railway, is the
most prominent. The dense forests all about are filled with the music of restless brooks which will irresistibly attract the trout fisherman, and the hunter
for large game can have his choice of "big horns, mountain goats, grizzly and
mountain bears." The main point of interest, however, is the Great Glacier.
One may safely climb upon its wrinkled surface or penetrate its water-worn

at Revelstoke, B.C., in the basin of the Columbia between the Selkirk and the
Gold ranges, and a gateway to the West Kootenay mining region. The hotel
is perched on a mountain bench directly above the railway station, and is
surrounded on all sides by majestic mountains. Immediately opposite the
hotel, and fifteen miles away, lies the Begbie Glacier, one of the grandest in
British Columbia, amongst the highest peaks.
The rates are $3.00 per day and upwards.
at Sicamous, B.C., a fine new structure, built on the shores of the Shuswap
Lakes, where the Okanagan branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway leads
south to the Okanagan Valley and the contiguous mining country. The

35 The Canadian Pacific Railway
CAR SERVICE—largely added to recently—so important an accessory
upon a railway whose cars run upwards of THREE
PARLOR SLEEPING CARS, built, owned and operated by the Company,
are of unusual strength and have wider, higher and longer berths than other
sleeping cars, while the smoking and toilet rooms are correspondingly roomy.
They are fitted with double doors and windows, to exclude the dust in
summer and in winter a third window is fitted.
The exteriors are of polished red mahogany. In the interior handsomely
inlaid panels take the place of unnecessary draperies and over-elaborate
ornamentation and produce an effect of quiet comfort and perfect cleanliness
very grateful on a long journey. A telegraphic summary of the news of
the world is bulletined twice a day in the sleeping cars.
TOURIST SLEEPING CARS of the most modern design are now operated
by the Company and are rapidly replacing those of an older type. They are
fitted with folding sleeping berths of the regular pattern, large and
commodious toilet rooms, smoking room and modern kitchen.
Modern DINING CARS are attached to all trains making long runs.
The Company has recently adopted a standard pattern and is renewing its
stock. The new cars are fitted up handsomely in solid oak, with scenes from
the mountains, displayed in tiling along the walls. The cuisine leaves
nothing to be desired, and the bill of fare and wine list compare favorably
with those of the best hotels.
COMPARTMENT CARS are run in connection with the Canadian Pacific
Trans-Pacific Steamships.
OBSERVATION CARS, designed to give the passengers an uninterrupted
view of the scenery, are attached to trains in the mountains during the
FIRST CLASS DAY COACHES are constructed with every attention to
the comfort of the passengers and the COLONIST SLEEPING CARS provide
without extra charge sleeping accomodation for settlers.
