SOUVENIR COPY OF THIS MENU CARD IN   ENVELOPE READY FOR MAILING  MAY BE HAD ON APPLICATION   TO   DINING   CAR  STEWARD The Perils of the Stage Coach
THE stage coach was a fairly familiar mode of transportation
in British Columbia before the advent of the Canadian
Pacific, for good roads had been built into the interior as
far back as the 'sixties. The famous Cariboo Road, which had
followed as a natural sequence the discovery of gold in the upper
districts of the Fraser River, was a fine road; and even as late
as the first decade of this century there were a great many
regions in the province not then served by railways — such as
the Windermere Valley — where stages still ran.
In depicting this scene, our artist has illustrated one that was far
more common south of the international border than it was in
Canada; for while there were occasional hold-ups and attacks
upon the stages, particularly during the lawless period of mining
development, the firm rule of the Royal North-West Mounted
Police rapidly eliminated such practices and made travel by road
as safe as railway travel to-day. The pioneers, of civilization
in the western United States found their path beset with not a
little peril, and in the pre-railway period there Indian attacks
upon the stage-coach lines which traversed the western prairies
were not infrequent.
But in Canada, from the first coming of the Canadian Pacific,
its property, its passengers and the districts which it serves have
enjoyed the most complete freedom from disturbance and disorder. The only Indians in war-paint that its passengers have
ever seen are those who on occasion exhibit the ancient pageantry
of their race for the entertainment of the white man — frequently
in ceremonials organized by the railway itself.
