ONE of the most attractive regions of the
Pacific Northwest—whether the end sought
is scenery, climate, sport, or merely flower-
perfumed leisure—is encompassed within the
picturesque and rugged shores of the magnificent
island that lies off the mainland of British Columbia
and takes its name from its eighteenth century discoverer. Reposing in splendor on the bosom of the
grand old Pacific Ocean, and reached within a few
hours by a delightful trip from Vancouver city or
Seattle, this treasure island presents a tourist playground of easy access that is unsurpassed by any
section of the continent.
Vancouver Island is probably the oldest-
settled section of northwestern America. Discovered (according to legend) in 1592 by Juan de
Fuca, in the service of Spain, it was visited by
Captain Cook in 1778, and again in 1792 by
Captain George Vancouver of the British navy.
That last-named intrepid navigator, who took over
the Island from Spain, wrote in his journal: "To
describe the beauties of the region will, on some
future occasion, be a very grateful task. The
serenity of the climate, the innumerable pleasing
landscapes, and the abundant fertility that unassisted Nature puts forth, require only to be
nourished by the industry of man with villages,
Printed in Canada—1925
mansions, cottages and other buildings to render
it the most lovely country that can be imagined."
These predictions have come true. The first
step was the founding by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1843 of what is now the delightful city of
Victoria. Pretty little towns and rural communities dot the southern end of the island. Settlement
and capital have flowed in—have developed the
fertile lands, the rich mines and the heavy forests
with which Vancouver Island is so well endowed,
and have created prosperity and contentment.
Most of all, Vancouver Island is endowed with
a wonderful climate, tempered by the ocean
breezes and the warm Japan Current—a climate
that has extremes neither of heat nor of cold, in
which roses bloom almost up to Christmas. That
is why Victoria, variously known as the Garden
City, the City of Sunshine, and the Evergreen City,
has become so favorite a winter resort.
To the sportsman, Vancouver Island offers
superlative attractions. Wonderful shooting and
fishing are to be obtained almost everywhere, at
very few places very remote or inaccessible. The
island has a thousand miles of fine motor roads,
threading magnificent scenery. Golf, bathing,
canoeing, sailing, polo and tennis are there to suit
the varying mood.

 "Victoria
 ^jyi
VICTORIA, the largest city of Vancouver Island and the
capital of British Columbia, is charmingly situated at
the southern end of the Island. There is an enticing
welcome to the traveller entering its harbor—the blue-tinted
Sooke Hills, the Little Saanich Mountain, the snow-capped
Olympic Mountains on the mainland, and then, entering
the square Inner Harbor, a foreground of beautiful trees,
shrubs, and flower-gardens, with the Parliament Buildings
rising from lawns on the right, the Boston ivy-covered
Empress Hotel right ahead, the city at the left, and the old
cathedral on the hill above.
The Evergreen   Victoria is the Evergreen City of Canada—
City a city of flowers, hydrangeas, roses, hedges,
oak trees, broom, holly, bungalows, gardens,
trim boulevards, and delightful parks. Its mild climate makes
it a haven of content, in summer as in winter, for while zero
weather is unknown there, so also is excessive heat. The
characteristic beauty of its residential district has made it
distinctively a home city—a spot favored, incidentally, by
those who have acquired a sufficiency of this world's goods
and wish to work no more. Nevertheless, Victoria's enterprising business district, composed of imposing stores and tall
office buildings, speaks of a rich commerce drawn from the
vast resources of Vancouver Island. Victoria is an important
seaport for both coastwise and ocean shipping—the last (or
the first) port of call for services between Canada and China,
Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Parks and        Victoria has within its boundaries, or within
Beaches easy access, many beautiful parks.    Chief of
these is Beacon Hill Park, comprising some
300 acres laid out as recreation grounds and pleasure gardens
and containing many interesting monuments and relics.
Magnificent views of the sea and the Olympic Mountains can
be obtained from here. Gorge Park is a popular pleasure
resort, with boating, bathing, picnic grounds, and open-air
entertainments.
The principal bathing resorts within easy reach of Victoria, in addition to the Gorge, are Foul Bay, Cadboro Bay,
Cordova Bay, Brentwood Beach, Willows, and Shoal Bay.
These can be reached either by street car or by automobile.
Sight-seeing automobiles make frequent trips during the
season. Cadboro Bay is near Uplands, a charmir g residential
section, and has the Royal Victoria Yacht Club
The Empress   At Victoria, overlooking the Inn er Harbor, is
Hotel the Empress Hotel of the Canadian Pacific—
an hotel of stately architecture, hospitable
spirit, spacious atmosphere, and social warmth. This is the
westernmost of the chain of Canadian Pacific hotels that
spans Canada from coast to coast and offers to the traveller
the highest standard of hotel service, both in summer and in
winter.
The Crystal     Adjoining the Empress Hotel, a new amuse-
Gardens ment casino will be opened this year under
this name.   It will contain one of the world's
largest glass-enclosed salt-water swimming pools, conserva
tories, conventions and concert halls, a large pavilion for
dancing, gymnasium, and facilities for other indoor amusements.
Parliament Victoria is the seat of government of British
Building Columbia.    The Parliament Building, which
is one of the finest in America, both for
architecture and situation, is a handsome structure overlooking the Inner Harbor. In the eastern block is the Provincial
Museum, very complete and interesting, and containing a
large assortment of specimens of natural history, native
woods, Indian curios and prehistoric instruments. The
Provincial Library is a fine one. Its historical prints, documents, and other works, especially regarding the Pacific
Coast, are of great value and interest. In the old legislative
buildings on Superior Street is a Mineral Museum. All are
open to the public daily.
Observatory Victoria's unequalled climate and its low range
of temperature guided the choice of Observatory Hill (formerly Little Saanich Mountain) for the site of
the great Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. This was
completed in 1918; the new telescope has a 72-inch
reflector, one of the largest in the world. The observatory is
reached by interurban car, and is open daily. Another observatory, the Meteorological, is situated in Gonzales Heights,
overlooking Foul Bay; a very fine view indeed is to be obtained
from its roof.
An Educa- Victoria is a well-known educational centre.
tional Centre Besides public, high and normal schools, it
has a number of private schools, which make
an especial appeal to boys of British and American parentage
in the Orient and are run according to the best traditions of
English public school life.
Brentwood Brentwood is a charming resort situated on
Saanich Inlet, fifteen miles from the city, and
reached by street car or automobile. There is a fine boys'
school here and many pleasant summer homes. Boating, fishing and bathing are amongst the recreations.
The Butchart Near Brentwood are the beautiful gardens
Gardens of Mr. R. P. Butchart, unsurpassed on the
Pacific Coast, which are open to visitors
every day of the week. In no part of America can any
more diversified gardens be found than these, for besides the
unique sunken gardens are acres of rose gardens, stretches of
velvet lawns bordered with flowers of every description, and
a Japanese, or fairy, garden.
Esquimalt Four miles from Victoria, Esquimalt was for
many years Great Britain's only naval station
on the Pacific Coast. The Dock Yard has now been handed
over to the Canadian Government, and is the base on the
Pacific Coast for the Canadian and Imperial navies, with a
new dry dock capable of handling the largest vessels afloat.

Oak Bay Oak Bay is one of the principal residential
districts of Victoria. With an excellent hotel,
it has facilities for boating and some fine walks along the sea
front.
Sooke Sooke, 21 miles from Victoria on the West
Coast road, is the nearest point to the
entrance to the Pacific. Outside the harbor sweeps the tide
of Juan de Fuca, with the lordly Olympics as a fitting background. Here may be seen ships coming or going on their
voyage to the Orient. Within the sheltered waters, which
are almost landlocked, are splendid bathing and boating
facilities, with very good trout and salmon fishing.
Climate According to figures supplied by the Mete
orological Office of the Dominion Government, the lowest point reached at Victoria during the year
of 1923 was 11° Fahrenheit in the month of December. The
highest temperature during the summer was 86° (June), while
the average temperature of August was 61°. The total precipitation was 27.50 inches, and the total amount of bright
sunshine was 2,247 hours—an average daily allowance of
6 hours throughout the year, with an average during the
summer months of 10 hours. No wonder that the grass is
always green and that spring comes early in this equable and
delightful climate!
Golfing Golf can be enjoyed every day of the year
at Victoria. Three 18-hole and two 9-hole
courses, which are very convenient, are open to visitors.
There is probably no better-known club in Canada than the
Victoria Club, with its famous greens at Oak Bay, at the
southern end of Vancouver Island. Many of the holes skirt
the shore of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The view from the
third short hole, across the strait to the snow-clad Olympic
Range in Washington, is magnificent. More tourists and
visitors play over Oak Bay than over any other course in
Canada.
Another remarkably fine course in Victoria is that of the
Colwood Golf and Country Club. In addition to its excellent
standing as a links, the course is exceptionally beautiful,
possessing many fine oak trees as well as a number of groves
of fir. Guests of the Empress Hotel have, upon payment of
regular green fees, privileges at the Colwood Golf and Country
Club. Application should be made to the manager of the
hotel.

Motoring Considering  the size  of Vancouver   Island,
there are possibly more good motor trips
radiating from Victoria than any other place in America.
The motor roads are excellent, the drives north to Campbell
River, Port Alberni, Sproat and Great Central Lakes being
among the most spectacular in the world. Automobile
owners from the United States who wish to tour Vancouver
Island can bring their cars into Canada for ninety days without any formalities beyond the signing of registration card
at point of entry, and if it is desired that longer stay be made,
the usual bond is arranged at a small figure. Among the
most popular trips are:
Victoria, Marine Drive and Mount Douglas Park, 25 miles;
Little Saanich  Mountain Observatory and Brentwood,
33 miles;
Tour of Saanich Peninsula, 45 miles;
The famous Malahat Drive to Shawnigan and Duncan
(Island Highway), 41 miles;
Nanaimo, to Cameron Lake via Parksville, 40 miles—over
Alberni Summit, 57 miles;
The Island Highway Tour—Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo,
Cameron Lake, Port Alberni, Qualicum and Campbell
River, and the entire Georgian Circuit International
Tour, the greatest and most complete scenic tour on
the continent.
Automobiles There are many garages from which cars can be
' hired. Rates, usually $3.00 per hour for 5-passenger
cars, $3.50 per hour for 7-passenger cars. Special
arrangements can be made for a two or three day trip. There are several
auto liveries providing cars without drivers at reasonable rates for those
who  wish  to  drive  themselves.
Boats Victoria Harbor has exceptional facilities for boating,
P ' , including a run (4 miles) to the Gorge.   Boats and
canoes, ere. , canoes can De hired from the Gorgeway boathouse
at $2.50 per day, or 50 cents per hour. Motor boats
can be hired from the same place by special arrangements. Boats and
canoes can also be hired from the Oak Bay boathouse and Cadboro
Bay boathouse, the rates being the same.
Riding Very excellent hacks can be hired at "The Willows,"
and there are Some very beautiful roads along which
people can ride, not very much frequented by
motor cars. These include the University road, the Cadboro Bay road
and the road running around Mount Tomlie. A bridle path has been
made around Beacon Hill which will enable visitors to enjoy equestrian
exercise in beautiful surroundings and yet be within three-quarters of a
mile of the Empress Hotel. Rates for horses are $3.50 the first hour,
$1.50 the second, and $1.00 the third. Special rates will be made to
board people's own horses.
Tennis There   are   four   grass   tennis   courts,   the   chief  of
which is the Victoria Lawn Tennis Court. Members
of any recognized tennis club can obtain visitors'
privileges.

 % East Coast
The E. & N. The East Coast of Vancouver Island is served
by the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway, a
subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific, which runs in a northerly
direction, within a close distance most of the time of the
coast line, for 140 miles to Courtenay, nearly halfway up the
Island. Branches run also to Cowichan Lake and to Port
Alberni, and an extension of the main line is projected from
Courtenay to Campbell River. This line carries the visitor
through a succession of rich agricultural, lumbering, and
mining regions, and through magnificent, rugged scenery.
Colwood, eight miles beyond Victoria, is a thriving little
settlement of truck and poultry farmers, and the station for
the Colwood Country Club. Continuing through a country
wooded on one side and more or less open on the other, the
Langford and Goldstream Lakes are passed. The line rises
gradually to Malahat, which is the summit of the railway
crossing the Malahat Range and from which there is a prolonged view of Todd Inlet and the Saanich Arm. The Malahat Drive (in view from the railway) crosses this mountain.
Shawnigan       Shawnigan Lake is a beautiful sheet of water
Lake that provides excellent fishing.    On its shore
is the comfortable Strathcona Lodge, from
which a splendid view of the lake can be obtained. Shawnigan is a small settlement at the northerly end of the lake.
All around the lake are dotted picturesque summer cottages,
their verandahs overhanging the water, little pleasure craft
moored beneath them, ready to take their owners abroad on
the beautiful waterway. Cobble Hill, the next station, is a
prosperous dairying district. Cowichan, the station for Cowichan Bay, is one of the best places for salmon trolling in the
island, and has a comfortable hunting lodge. Duncan is a
thriving city, the centre of a beautiful and prosperous agricultural, fruit-growing and poultry-raising region, with numerous
charming residences, and is largely populated by retired
English people, many of the residents supplementing their
incomes by farming.
Cowichan Duncan is the principal point for fishing the
Lake Cowichan and Koksilah Rivers—the former
one of the best fishing waters in British Columbia, where excellent steelhead can be taken on the fly.
A branch line runs twenty miles northwesterly, through a
busy logging country with an enormous output, to Cowichan
Lake. The waters of this lake teem with gamey trout, and
the forests bordering its shores harbor enough feathered and
furred game to satisfy the hunter's fondest expectations.
Nanaimo Somenos  and   Westholme   are   agricultural
and lumbering settlements. Chemainus has
one of the largest sawmills in the province, and is a good
stopping point for fishing on the Chemainus River. Lady-
smith, on Oyster Bay, is an important coal mining town, as
also are Cassidy, South Wellington, Nanaimo and Wellington.
Nanaimo, overlooking a beautiful bay, is the second largest
city of Vancouver Island, the fourth largest in the province,
and, owing to its proximity to the mainland, one of the main
arteries of the Island trade. It is the distributing centre foi
coal, and headquarters of prosperous agricultural and herring
fishing interests. It has a direct Canadian Pacific steamer
service to Vancouver.
Cameron The line continues through heavily wooded
Lake country to Nanoose Bay, around the southern
shore of which it runs. Parksville Junction
is the centre of a substantial mixed farming district, with
excellent fishing and bathing. With a beautiful beach, it is
becoming a favored seaside resort. The tide runs out for a
quarter-mile, letting the sun have full play on the firm, clean
sands, then sweeping in leisurely with a fringe of playful surf.
It is the junction point for the branch to Port Alberni, some
forty miles distant in a westerly direction. This branch runs
through a magnificently wooded country, practically untouched by the hand of man, to Cameron Lake, which has
very good trout fishing and shooting. A pretty and comfortable chalet owned by the railway company (but operated
privately) provides accommodation for visitors, supplemented
by tents along the lake-side for those who prefer to live and
sleep in the open.
From Cameron Lake the line skirts the foothills of
Mount Arrowsmith (6,000 feet high), one of the grandest
mountains of the island. Port Alberni and its associate town
Alberni look out on the majestic waters of the Alberni Canal,
a deep and mountain-skirted arm of the Pacific capable of
giving anchorage to an immense volume of shipping.
Qualicum Resuming the journey northward from Parks-
Beach ville, a six-mile run brings the traveller to
Qualicum Beach, a popular summer resort
that has one of the finest bathing beaches for children on the
East Coast. There is good fishing and shooting in the vicinity.
The next point of importance reached is Union Bay, shipping
point for the coal mines at Comox and Cumberland, which
have a very heavy production.
Courtenay Through a diversity of seashore and woodland
scenery, Courtenay, the present terminus of
the line, is reached. It is the centre for the agricultural
business of the Comox Valley, the largest farming and most
productive region of the Island. Within easy reach of Courtenay are Kye Bay Sands (9 miles), where a horseshoe bay
fronting on Georgian Bay affords wonderful and safe bathing
for children. At Little River, at about the same distance,
there is good bathing and splendid salmon fishing. Comox
Harbor, which is also reached from Courtenay, is the old naval
station for the Pacific squadron, and has some attractive
tyee salmon 'fishing grounds. A big Returned Soldier Settlement has been established at Merville. There are very
extensive timber interests adjacent to the valley.
Campbell Campbell River, ranking in fame as a salmon-
River fishing  water  with   Cowichan,   is  north  of
Courtenay. In the riot of waters where the
river rushes to meet the sea, the most exciting sport is to be
obtained with the rod and line, fishing for the tyee salmon,
king of the salmon tribe. Campbell River can be reached by
steamer from Vancouver or by motor boat or automobile
from Courtenay. A combination of steamer, motor and rail
from Vancouver to Campbell River and back again makes a
wonderful round-trip. Nearby is Strathcona Park, a new
Provincial Park of nearly 800 square miles, so full of deep
valleys, rugged mountains, roaring cataracts and still mountain lakes that it would need a whole book to describe.

 HuntM i Fishing
.AMhJ. . ■■.''■
PRACTICALLY speaking, all the lakes and streams of
Vancouver Island contain trout of some kind or other—
chiefly rainbow and cut-throat. Very large trout are
caught by trolling in the bigger lakes, but there is hardly any
trout water on the Island where the fish will not take the fly.
In the heat of midsummer, when the rivers are low, excellent
sport may be had with sea-trout in the estuaries.
Of the several varieties of salmon, there are only two of
particular appeal to the sportsman, the Cohoe and the Spring.
The latter, known by several aliases, such as King, Tyee and
Chinook, are the better table fish, and attain greater weight.
There are various localities off Vancouver Island where fifty
pound Springs are common; twenty or thirty pound fish are
ordinary in any of the estuaries when the Springs are running.
In February and March there is a run to the river, but the
big run comes in August, September and October. The
Cohoes have a small run in May and June, and are very game
at that time, but the main run comes during the latter part of
September, when they play more on the surface. The fall
Cohoe averages about nine pounds in weight.
That the British Columbia salmon will not take the fly
is a fallacy which has been disproved. Both Spring Salmon
and Cohoes are caught with a fly every season by anglers who
know how and when to use the fly.
The other fish which are plentiful in Vancouver Island
waters are steelheads, a combination of salmon and trout,
which run from the sea in the winter months; and char, very
handsome fish attaining a large weight and giving very fine
sport on spooning tackle or a salmon fly. They are found
chiefly at the outlets of the larger lakes.
The principal rivers for the fly fisherman on the East
Coast are the Cowichan River, Koksilah River, Chemainus
River, the Englishman's River, Little and Big Qualicum, the
Courtenay, the Oyster River (between Courtenay and Campbell River), and Campbell River. On the West Coast there
are the San Juan River, the Gordon, the Ash, the Stamp, the
Drinkwater, etc.
The principal trolling places are off Victoria Harbor,
Saanich Inlet, Cowichan Bay, Lady smith Harbor, Comox
Harbor, Campbell River, the Alberni Canal, and the many
inlets on the West Coast of the island.
Vancouver Island is wealthy in both furred and feathered
game. The varieties include black-tail deer, black bear,
cougar, pheasants, grouse, snipe, quail, ducks and geese.
Near Victoria Just outside Victoria, along the Saanich
Peninsula by motor stage, there is excellent
shooting to be had in the proper seasons. Pheasants, grouse
and quail are easily obtainable. Excellent deer shooting may
be had within fifteen or twenty miles of the city. The Sooke
and Malahat districts may be specially mentioned.
(Any hotel or other rates quoted in this booklet are not
necessarily guaranteed by the Canadian Pacific Railway.)
Fishing In Victoria Harbor, and just outside, very
good trolling for salmon can be obtained. The best spot is
what is known as Brotchie Ledge. The season is open practically the year round for different species of salmon—Tyee,
Cohoe, and Grilse. The best season for Springs is January
and February, and again in June and July. There is an early
run of Cohoes in March and April, and again in August and
September, continuing until the end of the year with Springs
and Grilse.
Goldstream Goldstream, ten miles from Victoria, is the
stopping place for Langford Lake. This lake
is one of the only two waters in the whole of British Columbia
where bass can be obtained. There is fair shooting in the
vicinity.
Brentwood       The fishing is practically the same as at Victoria.   The shooting is quite good, with deer
fairly plentiful; also, the hunting is not difficult.    Reached
by motor, rate $4.00.
Sooke Sooke is a small village on Sooke Harbour,
south of Victoria, and is reached by a stage
leaving the corner of Douglas and Fort streets twice a day;
return fare $2, also reached by motor $5. There is very good
fishing for both trout and salmon, and at the mouth of the
Sooke River excellent steelhead fishing can be obtained in
February and March.
Shooting Deer, bear and birds can be obtained.   Guides
can be secured at the hotel.
Shawnigan Boats and canoes can be hired from the hotel,
Lake motor boats also.   The hotel manager, M. A.
Wylde, is one of the best fishermen and
hunters on Vancouver Island, and an authority on sporting
conditions in the district.
Fishing Excellent trout fishing can be had in the lake.
The seasons are from March 25th until November 15th.
Fish can be obtained all the summer by trolling, but the best
fly fishing is in May and September.
Shooting Within a short distance from the hotel first-
class grouse, pheasant, quail and duck shooting can be had
in their respective seasons. In the hills at the back of the
hotel, there is some very good deer shooting, and black bears
are obtainable in the early spring.
Duncan Principal    point    for    fishing    the    famous
Cowichan and Koksilah Rivers.
Shooting Excellent shooting is offered, particularly for
pheasants, but owing to there being many settlers it is necessary to "obtain the permission of the owners of the different
farms. This, however, will usually be given. There is deer
and bear shooting among the neighboring hills.
Fishing The Cowichan River is within a quarter of a
mile from the town, and in January and February excellent
steelhead fishing is furnished. The best flies to use are the
big Silver Doctor or Jock Scott, but the favorite way of
Page eight
 Hunting | Fishing
taking these fish is with spoons, either by using a Siwash
Phantom, Devon or Minnow. It is, however, not necessary
to rely on these lures, as the fish will usually take the fly.
In the spring the fly trout fishing is very good indeed and
continues so practically the whole season.
Cowichan Railway service from Duncan twice weekly.
Lake On the days when the train does not run, a
stage does, fare $2.
Shooting Bear and deer, to say nothing of birds.   One
of the best known guides on the Island is available, Ken
Gillespie, who charges $10.00 per day. Indians are available
with canoes.
Fishing The fish in the lake are very similar to those
at Shawnigan, but are considered to be slightly better. They
average good size, and it is no exception to get them up to
three pounds.
Cowichan Reached  either from  Cowichan  station,  or
Bay from Duncan by stage or motor car.   Excel
lent bathing and boating.
Fishing The fishing, which is practically all trolling,
is exceptional; and during the months of August, September
and October the trolling for Cohoes is excellent. Fishing
tackle and men to row the boats can be obtained on application at the hotel, usual rate per day for a man and boat being
$7.50.    In the vicinity are some wonderful walks.
Shooting There is very fine bear and deer shooting in
the hills behind the hotel, and although there are no regular
guides, the hotel management can usually procure someone
who knows the country to act in that capacity.
Koksilah Three miles from Duncan, flowing into Cowi-
River chan Bay.    The fishing is similar to that of
the Cowichan River, with the exception that
in the spring there is wonderful sea trout fishing to be had.
Nanaimo The Nanaimo Lakes, some twenty miles dis
tant by motor car (usual rate $10.00), afford
very good fishing in the spring and the fall, although not in
the summer, except for trolling. There is very good sport too
in the Chemainus River, some twenty-five miles south of
Nanaimo.
Parksville Noted for its bathing beach.   There is splen
did deer as well as bird shooting behind
Parksville. There are no guides available, but the hotel
management will always do their best to see that parties are
looked after.   Boats can be hired at the hotel.
The Parksville Garage makes a specialty of running
visitors out to Englishman's River and French Creek. Its
owners are enthusiastic fishermen, and will give people all
the information that is necessary.
Qualicum
Beach
Just at the back of the E. & N. line, and off
the Parksville road, is a very good stretch of
country for deer shooting.    There are very
few bear in this district, but a large amount of small game.
Fishing The Little Qualicum River runs into Whiskey
Creek. The fishing at this point, while good in spring, is very
uncertain, but in the fall salmon (Cohoes) can be killed with a
fly.   Good accommodation is available at reasonable rates.
Courtenay There is good fishing here in the Tsoulum or
Courtenay River, the upper reaches of which
furnish cougar hunting. An old logging railway runs up to
Wolf Lake, which in the spring and fall is very good for bear
shooting.   There is a well-defined trail, easy to travel.
Excellent sport, both fishing and hunting, can be obtained
at Wolf Lake. Automobiles can be hired at the Courtenay
Garage, and there are also several private cars for rent.
Campbell Campbell River is noted for two things—its
River salmon fishing and its bear shooting.   Camp
bell River can be reached from Vancouver by
steamer, or from Courtenay by motor boat or automobile.
Automobile route, 30 miles; stage rates, $3.00 single, $5.00
return.   Boats are for hire in connection with the hotel.
The fishing and hunting in this district are exceptional.
The fish are very large and gamey. From Campbell River
it is possible to fish in Quinsam River, and to get, by means
of the International Logging Railway, right into the Quinsam
Lakes country—an extremely beautiful piece of hunting and
fishing country. It is rather difficult going in places, but ideal
for people who wish to rough it.
Following the river along, in which the fishing is good
nearly all the time, Campbell Lake is reached. The fishing is
unusually fine here, and in the spring excellent sport can be
had with a fly, the fish running very large indeed.
There is a motor road which runs along to Forbes Landing, where there is a small and comfortable hotel. Here
pack-ponies can be obtained by previous arrangement to go
to Buttles Lake.
Buttles Lake Buttles Lake is practically in the centre of
Vancouver Island, and runs through Strathcona Park. Before arriving at Buttles Lake,
however, there is Upper Campbell Lake, and where the Campbell River flows out of Buttles Lake the fishing is remarkably
good.
The bear hunting is well worth while, and there are lots
of deer. It is possible to take a wagon to within twelve miles
of Buttles Lake, when it is necessary to pack in. This can be
done by ponies, although it is somewhat slow going. Just at
the head of the lake there is a large and well-built cabin,
erected by the Provincial Government for the benefit of
campers:-
Buttles Lake has produced some of the biggest trout that
have ever been taken on the Island. There are several places,
and several rivers and streams running into the lake, the chief
of which are: Wolf Creek, Felwood Creek, at the extreme
southern end, Mirror Lake, and Glazier Creek.

THE West Coast of Vancouver Island can be reached by
Canadian Pacific steamers that leave Victoria every
ten days, making stops at a number of small points as
far as Port Alice, near the northern end of the Island.
This trip is a very interesting one, introducing the
traveller to a wild and picturesque country somewhat off the
beaten track of visitors, to a rugged and deeply-indented
coast line, and to mountainous and heavily-timbered slopes
that drop sheer into the water. The West Coast can indeed
be called the Canadian Norway. Little villages are found
along the fiord-like bays and inlets, devoted to fishing and
lumbering; Indian settlements, too, and interesting Indian
folk-lore and totem poles. This wild land is the last un-
modernized West on the continent—a country without railways, automobiles, moving pictures, or electric light; for all
intents and purposes the same as it was a hundred years ago.
Port The first port of call after leaving Victoria is
Renfrew Port Renfrew, at the head of the Port San
Juan Inlet, and at the mouth of the San Juan
and Gordon Rivers. This is a busy salmon-canning town
with some extremely good sporting advantages—trout and
salmon fishing, bear and deer shooting, and goose, duck and
brant shooting. Clo-oose is a small Indian village. Bamfield, on Cape Beale, is an Imperial Government cable station,
the landing point for the cable to Australia and New Zealand.
Uchucklesit has salmon and herring canning plants.
Port Swinging into the Alberni Canal, the largest
Alberni "fiord" of the West Coast, running inland
some thirty miles, we reach Port Alberni.
There are really two towns here, two miles apart—Alberni,
the "old town," and Port Alberni, "the new town." In addition to this steamer route, they can also be reached from
Victoria by rail by the branch of the E. & N. which runs westward from Parksville Junction (see page 6), or by a good road.
Port Alberni is the headquarters of the Barkley Sound herring
fleet, an important fish packing centre and a thriving lumbering town, with one of the largest areas of standing timber on
Vancouver Island tributary to it. Wonderfully interesting is
this West Coast port, and very beautiful indeed are its scenic
surroundings. One stands at the docks in the evening and
watches the fishing fleet go out, sailing into the gold and rose
of the sunset sky and the shadowy hills, and it looks like a
flotilla of dream ships floating into dreamland.
Superb Within reach of Alberni is to be obtained some
Sport of the most magnificent sport of the whole
Vancouver Island. The Alberni Canal is a
sheet of water running inland for some thirty miles, and is
particularly noted for its salmon trolling. At the head of the
Canal is the popular resort of Somass. Ten miles from
Alberni is Sproat Lake, a centre for very fine fishing and
hunting, dotted with isles and islets, and enfolded by the
hills. Also within easy reach of Alberni is Great Central
Lake, larger, more majestic, and guarded by mountains.
At Alberni itself there are the Stamp and Ash Rivers,
noted for their big fish.
Clayoquot        Retracing its way, the steamer strikes the
open  ocean   again  and  heads  towards  the
northwest, calling at Sechart, Ucluelet, Tofino and Clayoquot.
Not the least interesting thing about these remote little
settlements is the remarkable way in which the coming of
the steamer galvanizes them into life. One moment the
scene is deserted, uninhabited; but the blast of the siren will
bring a whole flock of eager small craft into the bay, apparently from nowhere. Clayoquot, on Vargas Island, is one of the
oldest and most important deep-sea fishing harbors on the
West Coast. It is a fine spot for goose and brant shooting;
and it also has in Long Beach, reached down the Browning
Passage, a beautiful beach set amidst wonderful scenery.
Totem Poles Nootka, on a magnificent gull-haunted arm
of the sea known as Nootka Sound, is one of
the oldest settled districts of the West Coast. Friendly Cove,
as a playful tourist remarked, is the home of tame Indians and
very wild totem poles. These curiously crested, highly-
colored poles, standing along the main street or over the
graves of dead warriors, are almost as mysterious to the white
man as the Druidical stones, but to the coast Indian they are
as important as the Social Register. The pole tells the tale of
the chieftain whom it commemorates—his name, clan, social
status and mighty deeds—truly a family tree. Frequently
the totem pole—often erected by the chief's successor in office
—would take from two to three years to make and would cost
the equivalent of from five to a thousand dollars. The
Indians work in the salmon and herring plant, which, is one
of the largest in British Columbia, and also ply a busy trade
with the visitors in brightly colored baskets and mats. It
was at Friendly Cove that Captain Vancouver took formal
possession of the coast in the name of Great Britain.
Port Alice Leaving  Kyuquot,  a  whaling  station,  and
passing desolate Solander Island, a rock of
Gibraltar-like proportions that is the haunt of gulls and sea-
lions, we head almost due west, round Cape Cook, and then
turn towards Quatsino Sound, which, entering, we traverse to
the village of Quatsino, a very old white settlement, the
inhabitants of which are engaged in mixed farming, logging,
fishing and trapping. A mile or so away is situated the
Indian settlement of the same name. At Quatsino, We double
back along the sheltered southeast arm to Port Alice, at the
extreme southern end of the inlet. Within the last few years
there has been created at Port Alice, where previously there
was no sign of human life, a very busy town revolving around
the large pulp and paper mill that has been established there.
The product of this mill is marketed principally in the Orient.
Whaling Off the West Coast of Vancouver Island is
carried on practically the entirety of the
whaling industry of Canada. Whales caught vary from 40
to 85 feet in length, running about one ton per foot length.
In Canadian waters the humpback and finback predominate,
the sperm whale having almost disappeared. Modern methods
are used in the whaling industry; the dead whale is inflated
with air, and towed to shore instead of being cut up and
rendered at sea, and it is on shore that the products are manufactured, every particle being used, including the blood. The
industry, however, is a fluctuating one, and travellers should
not be unduly disappointed if they fail to see the capture,
or even the carcase, of one of these leviathans of the sea.

 Resources /Industries
Lumbering Although we are here considering Vancouver
Island primarily from the standpoint of the
holiday tourist, a word will not be amiss regarding its industrial resources and potentialities. The Island has enormous
resources—mineral, forest, fishery and agricultural—which as
yet are only partially developed.
It contains, for example, almost a quarter of the standing
commercial timber of Canada. The most important varieties
are Douglas fir, red cedar, hemlock, balsam, spruce, and
yellow cedar or cypress. Important lumbering industries
have been developed at many places, notably at Chemainus,
Victoria, Courtenay and Port Alberni; while at Port Alice
there is a large pulp and paper mill.
Minerals The mineral resources of Vancouver Island
are extremely rich, and include coal, iron,
salt, marble, sandstone, zinc and cement material. The coal
mines have been well developed, and at Ladysmith, Nanaimo,
Cassidy, South Wellington, Nanaimo and Cumberland are
producing heavily. The last named is the biggest producing
region, shipping over 360,000 tons a year. Ladysmith has a
smelter. Important deposits of iron occur at several points
along both the East and West Coasts. Abundant water-
power is found in many parts of the Island; the largest develop
ed is on the Jordan River, near Victoria, with a capacity of
25,000 h.p.
Fishing Vancouver Island shares, too, in the great
volume of fishing enterprises conducted on
the Pacific Coast. Amongst the varieties of fish caught are
salmon, halibut, herring, cod, crabs, and oysters. Several
fish packing plants are located at Port Alberni and down the
Alberni Canal to the outlet at Barkley Sound. There has
also been created a successful whaling industry, with stations
at Kyuquot and Rose Harbor, on the West Coast.
Agriculture Agriculture is in a flourishing state in the
southern end of the island, particularly at
Saanich, Duncan, Parksville, Comox and Errington, though
elsewhere it has to some extent been retarded by the necessity
of clearing the land first. The climate of the Island is such as
to make agriculture somewhat of an idyllic occupation, and to
concentrate most attention upon the raising of vegetables and
small fruits. From the Island come some of the finest strawberries of this continent, their production per acre being very
heavy. Dairying is also carried on to a large and very successful extent, as well as sheep-breeding and chicken-raising. In
some parts of the Island grain is being cultivated.
HUNTING AND FISHING
(Continued from page 10)
Cameron Tents and boats can be hired from the hotel.
Lake Excellent bear and deer shooting, and very
good fishing. Where the little Qualicum
flows out of the lake is a favorite spot for fly fishing.
At the west end of the lake, where Cameron River enters,
the fishing is very good for about a mile, but after that distance it is not worthy of the angler's attention. From here
Cameron Lake is practically under the shadow of Mount
Arrowsmith. This mountain is within easy access of the Lake,
and a very enjoyable trip can be made by going along the
trail which runs from the west end of the lake, around Mount
Arrowsmith, into Alberni. This trail is still good and arrangements can be made at the hotel for the hire of an outfit.
Alberni One of the best centres for fishing, hunting
and camping on the whole Island. Bear,
deer and cougar are all found in the district.
Sproat At Sproat Lake there is a fishing and hunting
Lake cabin, operated by Mrs. Wark. Arrangements
can be made to hire tents, camping outfits and
boat. The rate for a complete camping outfit, with a boat,
is $15.00 a week.
The fishing is very good indeed, with innumerable rivers
and streams running into the lake, all of which contain fish.
The country surrounding this and Great Central Lake
abounds with game. The chief are deer and bear, and Mrs.
Wark makes a specialty of arranging hunting parties, and
providing guides.
At the west end of Sproat Lake, there is the Taylor River,
which is undoubtedly a very fine hunting ground for black
bear.    The fishing is exceptional.
In the late fall, good duck shooting can be obtained.
Grouse—blue and willow—are very numerous indeed.
Sproat Lake is ten miles from Alberni, and the cost by
motor car to either Sproat or Great Central Lake is $5.00.
Great Central Great Central Lake is very similar to Sproat
Lake Lake, and there is a very good sporting place,
the Ark, run by Joe Drinkwater, who is a
well-known guide and hunter. He has a limited amount of
accommodation, at the rate of $4.00 per day, also "small
arks" with sleeping accommodation, stoves and everything a
camper requires, which he will move to any part of the lake.
The cost of these is $1.00 per day per head. At the west end
of Great Central Lake Mr. Drinkwater has five nice cabins
which he rents out on the same terms.
At the head of the lake is Drinkwater Creek, which runs
into the lake just opposite the cabins. This river affords
excellent fishing, and has probably been photographed more
than any other river on the Island. It is possible to go from
here along the bed of this river over the mountains, and get
into the south end of Buttles Lake. This is a magnificent
piece of country, and, although somewhat hard going, is quite
accessible. The guides that can be obtained for this particular
trip are Jack and Tom Clark, who live in old Alberni, and
whose rates per day are $7.50.
At Alberni itself, there are the Stamp and the Ash Rivers,
which are noted for their big fish. They are within easy
walking distance. The fishing is best in the spring and the
fall, the fish averaging two or three pounds.
The Alberni The Alberni Canal is a sheet of water running
Canal inland some thirty miles, and is particularly
noted for its salmon trolling. Boats and
guides can be obtained at the Somass Hotel for $6.00 a day.
The best time for trolling is from March to October. There
are several small motor boats at Alberni which can be chartered on application to either the garage or the hotel.
Amongst the good spots are Cous Creek, China Creek,
and Nahmint River and Lake.

The Triangle Service
The popular "Triangle Service" of the Canadian Pacific
links the three dominant cities of the Puget Sound region—
Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle. Victoria is the apex of this
triangle, for there a daily service from Vancouver to Seattle,
via Victoria, and another in the reverse direction. There is
also a night service between Victoria and Vancouver, with
sleeping accommodation in comfortable cabins.
The well known "Princess" Steamships that perform the
Canadian Pacific B.C. Coast Service will be enlarged this
year by the addition of two magnificent new vessels that will
at once enter the "Triangle Service." These are the "Princess Kathleen" and "Princess Marguerite"—the finest and
fastest ships in the coastal trade of the Pacific Ocean.
Across the Pacific
Victoria is the last port of call for the many steamship
lines engaged in the Pacific services to the Orient and the
South Pacific, and the first incoming call for vessels arriving
from those countries. Amongst these lines the most important
is the Canadian Pacific "Empress" service to Japan, China
and the Philippines, performed by the beautiful ships
"Empress of Canada," "Empress of Australia," "Empress of
Russia," and "Empress of Asia"; and the Canadian-Australasian service to Honolulu, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia,
performed by the "Aorangi" (the world's largest motor-ship)
the "Niagara" and the "Makura."
Gulf Island Excursions

Canadian Pacific steamer amongst the Islands of the Gulf of
Georgia. These islands are highly picturesque, and full of
charm. Steamer leaves Victoria in summer several times a
week.

Automobile  Ferry  Service  Between  Bellingham  and  Vancouver   Island
A route from the mainland to Vancouver Island, of
particular service to motorists using the Pacific Highway, is
the Automobile Ferry operated by the Canadian Pacific
between Bellingham, Wash., and Sidney (which is about 18
miles from Victoria by a fine paved road).
The schedule for the summer season, 1925, commencing
June 30th and continuing up to September 8th, is as follows:—

Vancouver island
The Inner Harbor, Victoria; on the left, the Empress Hotel; on the right, the Parliament Buildings
ONE of the most attractive regions of the
Pacific Northwest—whether the end sought
is scenery, climate, sport, or merely flower-
perfumed leisure—is encompassed within the picturesque and rugged shores of the magnificent island
that lies off the mainland of British Columbia and
takes its name from its eighteenth-century discoverer. Reposing in splendor on the bosom of the
grand old Pacific Ocean, and reached within a few
hours by a delightful trip from Vancouver city or
Seattle, this treasure island presents a tourist playground of easy access that is unsurpassed by any
section of the continent.
That intrepid navigator, Captain George Vancouver of the British Navy, discovered it in 1792,
two centuries after the Greek navigator masquerading as Juan de Fuca, in the service of Spain, was
credited with the discovery, for there is historical
doubt whether the latter ever even sailed the waters
tributary to the island. Two sentences from Captain Vancouver's Journal will well serve to-day:
"To describe the beauties of the region will, on
some future occasion, be a very grateful task to the
pen of a skilful panegyrist. The serenity of the climate, the innumerable pleasing landscapes
and the abundant fertility that unassisted
Nature puts forth, require only to be nourished by the industry of man with villages,
Printed in Canada—1924
The picture on the cover of
this folder shows part of the
beautiful gardens of Mr. R.
P. Butchart, near Victoria.
mansions, cottages and other buildings to render it
the most lovely country that can be imagined."
These predictions have come true. The first step
was the founding by the Hudson's Bay Company
in 1843 of what is now the delightful city of Victoria, at the southern end of the island. Pretty
little towns and rural communities dot the island for
1 75 miles. Settlement and capital have flowed in—-
have developed the fertile lands, the rich mines and
the heavy forests with which Vancouver Island is
so well endowed, and have created prosperity and
contentment.
Most of all, Vancouver Island is endowed with a
wonderful climate, tempered by the ocean breezes
and warm Japan Current, a climate that has
extremes neither of heat nor of cold, in which roses
bloom almost up  to  Christmas. That is     why
Victoria, variously known as the Garden City, the
City of Sunshine, and the Evergreen City, has
become so favorite a winter resort.
To the sportsman, Vancouver Island offers
superlative attractions. Wonderful shooting and
fishing are to be obtained almost everywhere,
at very few places very remote or inaccessible. The
I sland has a thousand miles of fine motor
roads, threading magnificent scenery.
Golf, bathing, canoeing, sailing, polo and
tennis are there to suit the varying mood.

VICTORIA, the largest city of Vancouver Island and the
capital of British Columbia, is charmingly situated at
the southern end of the Island. There is an enticing
welcome to the traveller entering its harbor—the blue-tinted
Sooke Hills, the Little Saanich Mountain, the snow-capped
Olympic Mountains on the mainland, and then, entering
the square Inner Harbor, a foreground of beautiful trees,
shrubs, and flower-gardens, with the Parliament Buildings
rising from lawns on the right, the Boston ivy-covered
Empress Hotel right ahead, the city at the left, and the old
cathedral on the hill above.
Victoria is the Evergreen City of Canada—a city of
flowers, hydrangeas, roses, hedges, oak trees, broom, holly,
bungalows, gardens, trim boulevards, and delightful parks.
Its mild climate makes it a haven of content, in summer as
in winter, for while zero weather is unknown there, so also is
excessive heat. The characteristic beauty of its residential
district has made it distinctively a home city—a spot favored,
incidentally, by those who have acquired a sufficiency of this
world's goods and wish to work no more. Nevertheless,
Victoria's enterprising business district, composed of imposing
stores and tall office buildings, speaks of a rich commerce
drawn from  the vast   resources  of Vancouver Island.
Victoria has within its boundaries, or within easy access,
many beautiful parks. Chief of them is Beacon Hill Park,
comprising some 300 acres laid out as recreation grounds and
pleasure gardens and containing many interesting monuments
and relics. Magnificent views of the sea and the Olympic
Mountains can be obtained from here. Gorge Park is a
popular pleasure resort, with boating, bathing, picnic grounds,
and open-air entertainments.
The principal bathing resorts within easy reach of>Vic-
toria, in addition to the Gorge, are Foul Bay, Cadboro Bay,
Cordova Bay, Brentwood Beach, Willows, and Shoal Bay.
These can be reached either by street car or by automobile.
Sight-seeing automobiles make frequent trips during the
season. Cadboro Bay is near Uplands, a charming residential
section, and has the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.
The Empress      At Victoria, overlooking the Inner Harbor, is
Hotel the Empress Hotel of the Canadian Pacific—
an hotel of stately architecture, hospitable
spirit, spacious atmosphere, and social warmth. This is the
westernmost of the chain of Canadian Pacific hotels that spans
Canada from coast to coast and offers to the traveller the
highest standard of hotel service, both in summer and in
winter.
Parliament Victoria is the seat of government of British
Building Columbia.     The Parliament Building, which
is one of the finest in America, both for
architecture and situation, is a handsome structure overlooking the Inner Harbor. In the eastern block is the Provincial
Museum, very complete and interesting, and containing a
large assortment of specimens of natural history, native
woods, Indian curios and prehistoric instruments. The
Provincial Library is a fine one.     Its historical prints, docu-
Page  two
ments, and other works, especially regarding the Pacific
Coast, are of great value and interest. In the old legislative
buildings on Superior Street is a Mineral Museum. All are
open to the public daily.
Observatory Victoria's unequalled climate and its low range
of temperature guided the choice of Observatory Hill (formerly Little Saanich Mountain) for the site of
the great Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. This was
completed in 1918, the new telescope, which has a 72-inch
reflector, one of the largest in the world. The observatory is
reached by interurban car, and is open daily. Another observatory, the Meteorological, is situated in Gonzales Heights,
overlooking Foul Bay; a very fine view indeed is to be
obtained from its roof.
An Educa- Victoria is a well-known educational centre.
tional Centre Besides public, high and normal schools, it
has a number of private schools, which make
an especial appeal to boys of British and American parentage
in the Orient and are run according to the best traditions of
English public school life.
Brentwood Brentwood is a charming resort situated on
Saanich Inlet, fifteen miles from the city, and
reached by street car or automobile. There is a fine boys'
school here and many pleasant summer homes. Boating, fishing and bathing are amongst the recreations.
The Butchart Near Brentwood are the beautiful gardens
Gardens of Mr. R. P.  Butchart, unsurpassed on the
Pacific Coast, which are open to visitors
every day of the week. In no part of America can any
more diversified gardens be found than these, for besides the
unique sunken gardens are acres of rose gardens, stretches of
velvet lawns bordered with flowers of every description, and
a Japanese, or fairy, garden.
Esquimalt Four miles from Victoria, Esquimalt was for
many years Great Britain's only naval station
on the Pacific Coast. The Dock Yard has now been handed
over to the Canadian Government, and is the base on the
Pacific Coast for the Canadian and Imperial navies, with a
new dry dock capable of handling the largest vessels afloat.
Oak. Bay Oak  Bay  is one of  the  principal  residential
districts of Victoria. With an excellent hotel,
it has facilities for boating and some fine walks along the sea
front.
Sooke Sooke,  21   miles from Victoria on  the Wesst
Coast road, is the nearest point to the
entrance to the Pacific. Outside the harbor sweeps the tide of
Juan de Fuca, with the lordly Olympics as a fitting background. Here may be seen ships coming or going on their
voyage to the Orient. Within the sheltered waters, which
are almost landlocked, are splendid bathing and boating
facilities, with very good trout and salmon fishing.

CLIMATE
According to figures supplied by the Meteorological
Office of the Dominion Government, the lowest point reached
at Victoria during the year of 1923 was I 1 ° Fahrenheit in the
month of December. The highest temperature during the
summer was 86° (June), while the average temperature of
August was 61°. The total precipitation was 27.50 inches,
and the total amount of bright sunshine was 2,247 hours—an
average daily allowance of 6 hours throughout the year,
with an average during the summer months of 10 hours.
No wonder that the grass is always green and that spring
comes early in this equable and delightful climate!
GOLFING
Golf can be enjoyed every day of the year at Victoria.
Three 18-hole and two 9-hole courses, which are very convenient, are open to visitors. There is probably no better-
known club in Canada than the Victoria Club, with its
famous greens at Oak Bay, at the southern end of Vancouver
Island. Many of the holes skirt the shore of the Strait of
Juan de Fuca. The view from the third short hole, across the
strait to the snow-clad Olympic Range in Washington,
is magnificent. More tourists and visitors play over Oak
Bay than over any other course in Canada.
Another remarkably fine course in Victoria is that of the
Colwood Golf and Country Club. In addition to its excellent
standing as a links, the course is exceptionally beautiful,
possessing many fine oak trees as well as a number of groves of
fir. Guests of the Empress Hotel have, upon payment of
regular green fees, privileges at the Colwood Golf and Country
Club. Application should be made to the manager of the
hotel.

MOTORING
CONSIDERING    the size of Vancouver Island, there are
possibly more good motor trips radiating from Victoria
than any other place in America.    The motor roads are
excellent, the drives north to Campbell River, Port Alberni,
Sproat and Great Central Lakes being among the most spectacular in the world. Automobile owners from the United
States who wish to tour Vancouver Island can bring their cars
into Canada for ninety days without any formalities beyond
the signing of a registration card at point of entry, and if it
is desired that longer stay be made, the usual bond is arranged
at a small figure.     Among the most popular trips are:
Victoria, Marine Drive and Mount Douglas Park, 25 miles;
Little Saanich Mountain Observatory and Brentwood, 33
miles;
Tour of Saanich Peninsula, 45 miles;
The famous Malahat Drive to Shawnigan    and  Duncan
(Island Highway), 41  miles;
Nanaimo, to Cameron Lake via Parksville, 40 miles—over
Alberni Summit, 57 miles;
The Island Highway Tour—Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo,
Cameron Lake, Port Alberni, Qualicum and
Campbell River, and the entire Georgian Circuit
International Tour, the greatest and most complete
scenic tour on the continent.
Automobiles. There are many garages from which cars can be hired •
Rates, usually $3.00 per hour for 5-passenger cars, $3.50 pe r
hour for 7-passenger cars. Special arrangements can be made for a two
or three day trip. There are several auto liveries providing cars without
drivers at reasonable rates for those who wish to drive themselves.
Boats, Victoria Harbor has exceptional facilities for boating, including
Canoes, a run (4 miles) to the Gorge. Boats and canoes can be hired from
Etc. the Gorgeway boathouse at $2.50 per day, or 50 cents per hour,
Motor boats can be hired from the same place by special arrangements.    Boats and canoes can also be hired from the Oak Bay boat-
house and Cadboro Bay boathouse, the rates being the same.
Riding.    Very excellent hacks can be hired at "The Willows," and there are
some very beautiful roads along which people can ride, not very
much frequented by motor cars. These include the University road, the
Cadboro Bay road, and the road running around Mount Tolmie. Rates for
horses are $3.50 the first hour, $1.50 the second, and $1.00 the third.
Special rates will be made to board people's own horses.
Tennis.    There are four grass tennis courts,  the chief of which is  the
Victoria Lawn Tennis Court.    Members of any recognized tennis
club can obtain visitors' privileges.

The The East Coast of Vancouver Island is served
E. & N. by   the   Esquimalt   &   Nanaimo   Railway,   a
subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific, which runs
in a northerly direction, within a close distance most of the
time of the coast line, for 140 miles to Courtenay, nearly halfway up the Island. Branches run also to Cowichan Lake and
to Port Alberni, and an extension of the main line is projected
from Courtenay to Campbell River. This line carries the
visitor through a succession of rich agricultural, lumbering,
and mining regions, and through magnificent, rugged scenery.
Colwood, eight miles beyond Victoria, is a thriving little
settlement of truck and poultry farmers, and the station for
the Colwood Country Club. Continuing through a country
wooded on one side and more or less open on the other, the
Langford and Goldstream Lakes are passed. The line rises
gradually to Malahat, which is the summit of the railway
crossing the Malahat Range and from which there is a prolonged view of Todd Inlet and the Saanich Arm. The Malahat Drive (in view from the railway) crosses this mountain.
Shawnigan Shawnigan Lake   is a beautiful sheet of water
Lake that provides excellent fishing.     On its shore
is the comfortable Strathcona Lodge, from
which a splendid view of the lake can be obtained. Shawnigan is a small settlement at the northerly end of the lake.
All around the lake are dotted picturesque summer cottages,
their verandahs overhanging the water, little pleasure craft
moored beneath them, ready to take their owners abroad on
the beautiful waterway. Cobble Hill, the next station, is a
prosperous dairying district. Cowichan, the station for Cowichan Bay, is one of the best places for salmon trolling in the
island, and has a comfortable hunting lodge. Duncan is a thriving city, the centre of a beautiful and prosperous agricultural,
fruit-growing and poultry-raising region, with numerous
charming residences, and is largely populated by retired
English people, many of the residents supplementing their
incomes by farming.
Cowichan Duncan is the principal point for fishing the
Lake Cowichan  and  Koksilah  Rivers—the former
one of the best fishing waters in British
Columbia, where excellent steelhead can be taken on the fly.
A branch line runs twenty miles northwesterly, through a busy
logging country with an enormous output, to Cowichan Lake.
The waters of this lake teem with gamey trout, and the forests
bordering its shores harbor enough feathered and furred game
to satisfy the hunter's fondest expectations.
Nanaimo Somenos and Westholme are the agricultural
and lumbering settlements. Chemainus has
one of the largest sawmills in the province, and is a good
stopping point for fishing on the Chemainus River. Ladysmith, on Oyster Bay, is an important coal mining town, as
also are Cassidy, South Wellington, Nanaimo and Wellington
Nanaimo, overlooking a beautiful bay, is the second largest
city of Vancouver Island, the fourth largest in the province,
and, owing to its proximity to the mainland, one of the main
arteries of the Island trade. It is the distributing centre for
coal, and headquarters of prosperous agricultural and herring
fishing interests. It has a direct Canadian Pacific steamer
service to Vancouver.
Cameron] The line continues  through  heavily  wooded
Lake country to Nanoose Bay, around the southern
shore of which it runs. Parkesville Junction is
the centre of a substantial mixed farming district, with excellent fishing and bathing. With a beautiful beach, it is becoming a favored seaside resort. The tide runs out for a quarter-
mile, letting the sun have full play on the firm, clean sands,
then sweeping in leisurely with a fringe of playful surf. It
is the junction point for the branch to Port Alberni, some
forty miles distant in a westerly direction. This branch
runs through a magnificently wooded country, practically
untouched by the hand of man, to Cameron Lake, which has
very good trout fishing and shooting. A pretty and comfortable chalet owned by the railway company (but operated
privately) provides accommodation for visitors, supplemented by tents along the lake-side for those who prefer to live
and sleep in the open.
From Cameron Lake the line skirts the foothills of
Mount Arrowsmith (6,000 feet high), one of the grandest
mountains of the island. Port Alberni and its associate town
Alberni look out on the majestic waters of the Alberni Canal,
a deep and mountain-skirted arm of the Pacific capable of
giving anchorage to an immense volume of shipping.
Qualicum Resuming the journey northward from Parkes-
Beach ville,   a six-mile  run  brings  the  traveller  to
Qualicum Beach, a popular summer resort
that has one of the finest bathing beaches for children on the
East Coast. There is good fishing and shooting in the vicinity
The next point of importance reached is Union Bay, shipping
point for the coal mines at Comox and Cumberland, which
have a very heavy production.
Courtenay Through a diversity of seashore and woodland
scenery, Courtenay, the present terminus of
the line, is reached. It is the centre for the agricultural
business of the Comox Valley, the largest farming and most
productive region of the Island. Within easy reach of Courtenay are Kye Bay Sands (9 miles), where a horseshoe bay
fronting on Georgian Bay affords wonderful and safe bathing
for children. At Little River, at about the same distance,
there is good bathing and splendid salmon fishing. Comox
Harbor, which is also reached from Courtenay, is the old naval
station for the Pacific squadron, and has some attractive
tyee salmon fishing grounds. A big Returned Soldier Settlement has been established at Merville. There are very
extensive   timber   interests   adjacent   to   the   valley.
Campbell Campbell River, ranking in fame as a salmon-
River fishing   water   with   Cowichan,   is   north • of
Courtenay. In the riot of waters where the
river rushes to meet the sea, the most exciting sport is to be
obtained with the rod and line, fishing for the tyee salmon;
king of the salmon tribe. Campbell River can be reached by
steamer from Vancouver or by motor boat or automobile
from Courtenay. A combination of steamer, motor and rail
from Vancouver to Campbell River and back again makes a
wonderful round-trip. Nearby is Strathcona Park, a new
Provincial Park of nearly 800 square miles, so full of deep
valleys, rugged mountains, roaring cataracts and still mountain lakes that it would need a whole book to describe.

Hunting , Fishing
PRACTICALLY speaking, all the lakes and streams of
Vancouver Island contain trout of pome kind or other—
chiefly rainbow and cut-throat. Very large trout are
caught by trolling in the bigger lakes, but there is hardly any
trout water on the Island where the fish will not take the fly.
In the heat of midsummer, when the rivers are low, excellent
sport may be had with sea-trout in the estuaries
Of the several varieties of salmon, there are only two of
particular appeal to the sportsman, the Cohoe and the Spring.
The latter, known by several aliases, such as King, Tyee and
Chinook, are the better table fish, and attain greater weight.
There are various localities off Vancouver Island where fifty
pound Springs are common; twenty or thirty pound fish are
ordinary in any of the estuaries when the Springs are running.
In February and March there is a run to the river, but the
big run comes in August, September and October. The
Cohoes have a small run in May and June, and are very game
at that time, but the main run comes during the latter part of
September, when they play more on the surface. The fall
Cohoe averages about nine pounds in weight.
That the British Columbia salmon will not take the fly
is a fallacy which has been disproved. Both Spring Salmon
and Cohoes are caught with a fly every season by anglers who
know how and when to use the fly.
The other fish which are plentiful in Vancouver Island
waters are steelheads, a combination of salmon and trout,
which run from the sea in the winter months; and char, very
handsome fish attaining a large weight and giving very fine
sport on spooning tackle or a salmon fly. They are found
chiefly at the outlets of the larger lakes.
The principal rivers for the fly fisherman on the East
Coast are the Cowichan River, Koksilah River, Chemainus
River, the Englishman's River, Little and Big Qualicum, the
Courtenay, the Oyster River (between Courtenay and Campbell River), and Campbell River. On the West Coast there
are the San Juan River, the Gordon, the Ash, the Stamp, the
Drinkwater, etc.
The principal trolling places are Victoria Harbor, Saanich
Inlet, Cowichan Bay, Ladysmith Harbor, Campbell River,
the Alberni Canal, and the many inlets on the West Coast of
the island.
Vancouver Island is wealthy in both furred and feathered
game. The varieties include black-tail deer, black bear,
cougar,  pheasants,  grouse,  snipe,  quail,  ducks and geese.
Near Victoria Just outside Victoria, along the Saanich
Peninsula and the B.C. Electric Railway, there
is excellent shooting to be had in the proper seasons. Pheasants, grouse and quail are easily obtainable. Excellent deer
shooting may be had within fifteen or twenty miles of the city.
The Sooke and Malahat districts may be specially mentioned.
(Any hotel or other rates quoted in this booklet are not
necessarily guaranteed by the Canadian Pacific Railway.)
Fishing. In   Victoria   Harbor,   and   just   outside,   very
good trolling for salmon can be obtained. The best spot is
what is known as Brotchie Ledge. The season is open practically the year round for different species of salmon—Tyee,
Cohoe, and Grilse. The best season for Springs is January
and February, and again in June and July. There is an early
run of Cohoes in March and April, and again in August and
September, continuing until the end of the year with Springs
and Grike.
Goldstream Goldstream,   ten  miles from  Victoria,  is the
stopping place for Langford Lake. This lake
is one of the only two waters in the whole of British Columbia
where bass can be obtained. There is fair shooting in the
vicinity.
Brentwood The fishing is practically the same as at Vic
toria. The shooting is quite good, with deer
fairly plentiful; also, the hunting is not difficult. Reached
by B.C. Electric or motor, rate for latter $4.00.
Sooke Sooke is a small village on Sooke Harbour,
south of Victoria, and is reached by a stage
leaving the corner of Douglas and Fort streets twice a day;
return fare $2, also reached by motor $5. There is very good
fishing for both trout and salmon, and at the mouth of the
Sooke River excellent steelhead fishing can be obtained in
February and March.
Shooting. Deer, bear and birds can be obtained.
Guides can be secured at the hotel. The hotel manager,
Major Nicholson, is an experienced hunter and fisherman and
can give all information.
Shawnigan Boats and canoes can be hired from the hotel,
Lake motor  boats  also.    The  hotel  manager,  M.
A. Wylde, is one of the best fishermen and
hunters on Vancouver Island, and an authority on sporting
conditions in the district.
Fishing. Excellent trout fishing can be had in the lake.
The seasons are from March 25th until November 15th.
Fish can be obtained all the summer by trolling, but the best
fly fishing is in May and September.
Shooting. Within a short distance from the hotel first-
class grouse, pheasant, quail and duck shooting can be had
in their respective seasons. In the hills at the back of the
hotel, there is some very good deer shooting, and black bears
are obtainable in the early spring.
Duncan Principal    point   for   fishing      the      famous
Cowichan  and  Koksilah  Rivers.
Shooting. Excellent shooting is offered, particularly for
pheasants, but owing to there being many settlers it is necessary to obtain the permission of the owners of the different
farms. This, however, will usually be given. There is deer
and bear shooting among the neighboring hills.
Fishing. The Cowichan River is within a quarter of a
mile from the town, and in January and February excellent
steelhead fishing is furnished. The best flies to use are the
big  Silver  Doctor  or  Jock Scott,   but   the  favorite  way  of

Hunting ; Fishing
taking these fish is with spoons, either by using a Siwash.
Phantom, Devon or Minnow. It is, however, not necessary
to rely on these lures, as the fish will usually take the fly.
In the spring the fly trout fishing is very good indeed and
continues so practically the whole season.
Cowichan Railway service from Duncan twice weekly
Lake On the days when the train does not run, a
stage does, fare $2.
Shooting. Bear and deer, to say nothing of birds. One
of the best known guides on the Island is available, Ken Gillespie, who charges $10.00 per day, and can make all arrangements to shoot the celebrated Cowichan Rapids. Indians
are available with canoes, and the cost of shooting these
rapids, or going very nearly 20 miles by canoe, is $15.00.
Fishing. The fish in the lake are very similar to those at
Shawnigan, but are considered to be slightly better. They
average good size, and it is no exception to get them up to
three  pounds.
Cowichan Reached   either   from   Cowichan   station,   or
Bay. from Duncan by stage or motor car.    Excel
lent bathing and boating.
Fishing. The fishing, which is practically all trolling, is
exceptional; and during the months of August, September
and October the trolling for Cohoes is excellent. Fishing
tackle and men to row the boats can be obtained on application at the hotel, usual rate per day for a man and boat being
$7.50.     In the vicinity are some wonderful walks.
Shooting. There is very fine bear and deer shooting in
the hills behind the hotel, and although there are no regular
guides, the hotel management can usually procure someone   who knows the country to act in that capacity.
Koksilah Three miles from Duncan, flowing into Cowi-
River chan Bay.    The fishing is similar to that of
the Cowichan River, with the exception that
in the spring there is wonderful sea trout fishing to be had.
Nanaimo The Nanaimo Lakes, some twenty miles dis
tant by motor car (usual rate $10.00), afford
very good fishing in the spring and the fall, although not in
the summer, except for trolling. There is very good sport too
in the Chemainus River, some twenty-five miles south of
Nanaimo.
Parkesville Noted for its bathing beach.    There is splen
did deer as well as bird shooting behind
Parkesville. There are no guides available, but the hotel
management will always do their best to see that parties are
looked after.     Boats can be hired at the hotel.
The Parkesville Garage makes a specialty of running
visitors out to Englishman's River and French Creek. Its
owners are enthusiastic fishermen, and will give people
all the information that is necessary.
Qualicum Just at the back of the E. & N. line, and off the
Beach Parkesville  road,   is  a  very  good  stretch  of
country for deer shooting. There are very
few bear in this district, but a large amount of small game.
Fishing. The Little Qualicum River runs into Whiskey
Creek. The fishing at this point, while good in spring, is very
uncertain, but in the fall salmon (Cohoes) can be killed with a
fly.     Good  accommodation  is available at reasonable rates.
Courtenay There is good fishing here in the Tsoulum or
Courtenay River, the upper reaches of which
furnish cougar hunting. An old logging railway runs up
to Wolf Lake, which in the spring and fall is very good for
bear shooting. There is a well-defined trail, easy to travel
Excellent sport, both fishing and hunting, can be obtained
at Wolf Lake. Automobiles can be hired at the Courtenay
Garage, and there are also several private cars for rent.
Campbell Campbell River is noted for two things—its
River salmon fishing and its bear shooting.    Camp
bell River can be reached from Vancouver by
steamer, or from Courtenay by motor boat or automobile.
Automobile route, 30 miles; rates for party of four, $3.50 each;
six or more, $3.00 each; one person, $10.00. (Rates not guaranteed by C.P.R.) Arrangements for the trip in either direction should be made with C. Thulin, proprietor of the Willows
Hotel, Campbell River. Boats are for hire in connection with
the hotel.
The fishing and hunting in this district are exceptional
The fish are very large and gamey. From Campbell River it
is possible to fish in Quinsam River, and to get, by means of
the International Logging Railway, right into the Quinsam
Lakes country—an extremely beautiful piece of hunting and
fishing country. It is rather difficult going in places, but ideal
for people who wish to rough it.
Following the river along, in which the fishing is good
nearly all the time, Campbell Lake is reached. The fishing is
unusually fine here, and in the spring excellent sport can be
had with a fly, the fish running very large indeed.
There is a motor road which runs along to Forbes Landing, where there is a small and comfortable hotel. Here
pack-ponies can be obtained by previous arrangement to go
to  Buttles  Lake.
Buttles Buttles Lake is practically in  the centre of
Lake Vancouver Island, and runs through Strath
cona Park. Before arriving at Buttles Lake,
however, there is Upper Campbell Lake, and where the Campbell River flows out of Buttles Lake the fishing is remarkably
good.
The bear hunting is well worth while, and there are lots
of deer. It is possible to take a wagon to within twelve miles
of Buttles Lake, when it is necesaary to pack in. This can be
done by ponies, although it is somewhat slow going. Just at
the head of the lake there is a large and well-built cabin,
erected by the Provincial Government for the benefit of
campers.
Buttles Lake has produced some of the biggest trout that
have ever been taken on the Island. There are several places,
and several rivers and streams running into the lake, the chief
of which are: Wolf Creek, Felwood Creek, at the extreme
southern end, Mirror Lake, and Glazier Creek.

 ^fewest. Coast
THE West Coast of Vancouver Island can   be   reached   by
Canadian Pacific steamers that leave Victoria every  ten
days, making stops at a number of small  points  as  far
as Port Alice, near the northern end of the Island.
This trip is a very interesting one, introducing the traveller to a wild and picturesque country somewhat off the
beaten track of visitors, to a rugged and deeply-indented coast
line, and to mountainous and heavily-timbered slopes that
drop sheer into the water. The West Coast can indeed be
called the Canadian Norway. Little villages are found along
the fiord-like bays and inlets, devoted to fishing and lumbering;
Indian settlements, too, and interesting Indian folk-lore and
totem poles. This wild land is the last unmodernized West
on the continent—a country without railways, automobiles,
moving pictures, or electric light; for all intents and purposes
the same as it was a hundred years ago.
Port The first port of call after leaving Victoria is
Renfrew Port Renfrew, at the head of the Port San
Juan Inlet, and at the mouth of the San Juan
and Gordon Rivers. This is a busy salmon-canning town
with some extremely good sporting advantages—trout and
salmon fishing, bear and deer shooting, and goose, duck and
brant shooting. Clo-oose is a small Indian village. Bamfield, on Cape Beale, is an Imperial Government cable station,
the landing point for the cable to Australia and New Zealand.
Uchucklesit has salmon and herring canning plants.
Port Swinging into the Alberni Canal, the largest
Alberni "fiord"  of  the  West  Coast,   running  inland
some thirty miles, we reach Port Alberni.
There are really two towns here, two miles apart—Alberni,
the "old town," and Port Alberni, "the new town." In addition to this steamer route, they can also be reached from
Victoria by rail by the branch of the E. & N. which runs westward from Parkesville Junction (see page 6), or by a good road.
Port Alberni is the headquarters of the Barkley Sound herring
fleet, an important fish packing centre and a thriving lumbering
town, with one of the largest areas of standing timber on Vancouver Island tributary to it. Wonderfully interesting is
this West Coast port, and very beautiful indeed are its scenic
surroundings. One stands at the docks in the evening and
watches the fishing fleet go out, sailing into the gold and rose
of the sunset sky and the shadowy hills, and it looks like a
flotilla of dream ships floating into dreamland.
Superb Within reach of Alberni is to be obtained some
Sport of the most magnificent sport of the whole
Vancouver Island. The Alberni Canal is a
sheet of water running inland for some thirty miles, and is
particularly noted for its salmon trolling. At the head of the
Canal is the popular resort of Somass. Ten miles from
Alberni is Sproat Lake, a centre for very fine fishing and
hunting, dotted with isles and islets, and enfolded by the hills.
Also within easy reach of Alberni is Great Central Lake,
larger, more majestic, and guarded by mountains.
At Alberni itself there are the Stamp and Ash Rivers,
noted for their big fish.
Clayoquot Retracing  its  way,   the  steamer  strikes  the
open   ocean   again   and   heads   towards   the
northwest, calling at Sechart, Ucluelet, Tofino and Clayoquot.
Not the least interesting thing about these remote little settlements is the remarkable way in which the coming of the
steamer galvanizes them into life. One moment the scene is
deserted, uninhabited; but the blast of the siren will bring a
whole flock of eager small craft into the bay, apparently from
nowhere. Clayoquot, on Vargas Island, is one of the oldest
and most important deep-sea fishing harbors on the West
Coast. It is a fine spot for goose and brant shooting; and it
also has in Long Beach, reached down the Browning Passage,
a beautiful beach set amidst wonderful scenery.
Totem Poles Nootka, on  a magificent gull-haunted  arm
of the sea known as Nootka Sound, is one of
the oldest settled districts of the West Coast. Friendly Cove,
as a playful tourist remarked, is the home of tame Indians and
very wild totem poles. These curiously crested, highly-
colored poles, standing along the main street or over the
graves of dead warriors, are almost as mysterious to the white
man as the Druidical stones, but to the coast Indian they are
as important as the Social Register. The pole tells the tale of
the chieftain whom it commemorates—his name, clan, social
status and mighty deeds—truly a family tree. Frequently
the totem pole—often erected by the chief's successor in office
—would take from two to three years to make and would cost
the equivalent of from five to a thousand dollars. The Indians
work in the salmon and herring plant, which is one of the
largest in Biitish Columbia, and also ply a busy trade with
the visitors in brightly colored baskets and mats. It was
at Friendly Cove that Captain Vancouver took formal possession of the coast in the name of Great Biitain.
Port Alice Leaving   Kyuquot,   a   whaling   station,   and
passing desolate Solander Island, a rock of
Gibraltar-like proportions that is the haunt of gulls and sea-
lions, we head almost due west, round Cape Cook, and then
turn towards Quatsino Sound, which, entering, we traverse to
the village of Quatsino, a very old white settlement, the
inhabitants of which are engaged in mixed farming, logging,
fishing and trapping. A mile or so away is situated the Indian
settlement of the same name. At Quatsino, we double back
along the sheltered southeast arm to Port Alice, at the extreme southern end of the inlet. Within the last few years
there has been created at Port Alice, where previously there
was no sign of human life, a very busy town revolving around
the large pulp and paper mill that has been established there
The product of this mill is marketed principally in the Orient.
Whaling Off the West Coast of Vancouver  Island is
carried on practically the entirety of the
whaling industry of Canada. Whales caught vary from 40
to 85 feet in length, running about one ton per foot length.
In Canadian waters the humpback and finback predominate,
the   sperm   whale   having   almost   disappeared. Modern
methods are used in the whaling industry; the dead whale is
inflated with air, and towed to shore instead of being cut up
and rendered at sea, and it is on shore that the products are
manufactured, every particle being used, including the blood
The industry, however, is a fluctuating one, and travellers
should not be unduly disappointed if they fail to see the
capture, or even the carcase, of one of these leviathans of
the sea.

Lumbering Although we are here considering Vancouver
Island primarily from the standpoint of the
holiday tourist, a word will not be amiss regarding its industrial resources and potentialities. The Island has enormous
resources—mineral, forest, fishery and agricultural—which
as yet are only partially developed.
It contains, for example, almost a quarter of the standing
commercial timber of Canada. The most important varieties
are Douglas fir, red cedar, hemlock, balsam, spruce, and
yellow cedar or cypress. Important lumbering industries
have been developed at many places, notably at Chemainus,
Victoria, Courtenay and Port Alberni; while at Port Alice
there is a large pulp and paper mill
Minerals The  mineral  resources  of  Vancouver   Island
are extremely rich, and include coal, iron, salt,
marble, sandstone, zinc and cement material. The coal
mines have been well developed, and at Ladysmith, Nanaimo,
Cassidy, South Wellington, Nanaimo and Cumberland are
producing heavily. The last named is the biggest producing
region, shipping over 360,000 tons a year. Ladysmith has a
smelter. Important deposits of iron occur at several points
along both the East and West Coasts. Abundant water-
power is found in many parts of the Island; the largest develop-
vith a capacity of
ed is on the Jordan River, near Victoria,
25,000 h.p.
Fishing Vancouver   Island  shares,   too,   in   the  great
volume of fishing enterprises conducted on
the Pacific Coast. Amongst the varieties of fish caught are
salmon, halibut, herring, cod, crabs, and oysters. Several
fish packing plants are located at Port Alberni and down the
Alberni Canal to the outlet at Barkley Sound. There has
also been created a successful whaling industry, with stations
at Kyuquot and Rose Harbor, on the West Coast.
Agriculture Agriculture  is  in  a  flourishing  state  in   the
southern end of the island, particularly at
Duncan, Parkesville, Comox and Errington, though elsewhere
it has to some extent been retarded by the necessity of clearing
the land first. The climate of the Island is such as to make
agriculture somewhat of an idyllic occupation, and to concentrate most attention upon the raising of vegetables and
small fruits. From the Island come some of the finest strawberries of this continent, their production per acre being very
heavy. Dairying is also carried on to a large and very successful extent, as well as sheep-breeding and chicken-raising. In
some parts of the Island grain is being cultivated.
HUNTING AND FISHING
(Continued from page io)
Cameron
Lake
Tents and boats can be hired from the hotel.
Excellent bear and deer shooting,  and ver}'
good fishing.    Where the little Qualicum flows
out of the lake is a favorite spot for fly fishing.
At the west end of the lake, where Cameron River enters,
the fishing is very good for about a mile, but after that distance it is not worthy of the angler's attention. From here
Cameron Lake is practically under the shadow of Mount
Arrowsmith. This mountain is within easy access of the Lake,
and a very enjoyable trip can be made by going along the
trail which runs from the west end of the lake, around Mount
Arrowsmith, into Alberni. This trail is still good and arrangements can be made at the hotel for the hire of an outfit.
Alberni One of the best centres for fishing, hunting
and camping on the whole Island. Beer,
deer and cougar are all found in the district.
Sproat At Sproat Lake there is a fishing and hunting
Lake cabin, operated by Mrs. Wark.   Arrangements
can be made to hire tents, camping outfits and
boat. The rate for a complete camping outfit, with a boat,
is $1 5.00 a week.
The fishing is very good indeed, with innumerable rivers
and streams running into the lake, all of which contain fish.
The country surrounding this and Great Central Lake abounds
with game. The chief are deer and bear, and Mrs. Wark
makes a specialty of arranging hunting parties, and providing
guides.
At the west end of Sproat Lake, there is the Taylor River,
which is undoubtedly a very fine hunting ground for black
bear.    The fishing is exceptional.
In the late fall, good duck shooting can be obtained.
Grouse—blue and willow—are very numerous indeed.
Sproat Lake is ten miles from Alberni, and the cost by
motor car to either Sproat or Great Central Lake is $5.00.
Great Central Great Central Lake is very similar to Sproat
Lake Lake, and there is a very good sporting place,
the Ark, run by Joe Drinkwater, who is a
well-known guide and hunter. He has a limited amount of
accommodation, at the rate of $4.00 per day, also "small
arks" with sleeping accommodation, stoves and everything a
camper requires, which he will move to any part of the lake.
The cost of these is $1.00 per day per head. At the west end
of Great Central Lake Mr. Drinkwater has five nice cabins,
which he rents out on the same terms.
At the head of the lake is Drinkwater Creek, which runs
into the lake just opposite the cabins. This river affords
excellent fishing, and has probably been photographed more
than any other river on the Island. It is possible to go from
here along the bed of this river over the mountains, and get
into the south end of Buttles Lake. This is a magnificent
piece of country, and, although somewhat hard going, is quite
accessible. The guides that can be obtained for this particular
trip are Jack and Tom Clark, who live in old Alberni, and
whose rates per day are $7.50.
At Alberni itself, there are the Stamp and the Ash Rivers,
which are noted for their big fish. They are within easy
walking distance. The fishing is best in the spring and the
fall,  the fish averaging two or three pounds.
The Alberni The Alberni Canal is a sheet of water running
Canal inland some thirty miles, and is particularly
noted for its salmon trolling. Boats and
guides can be obtained at the Somass Hotel for $6.00 a day.
The best time for trolling is from March to October. There
are several small motor boats at Alberni which can be
chartered on application to either the garage or the hotel.
Amongst the good spots are Cous Creek, China Creek,
and   Nahmint  River  and   Lake.

NEW   AUTOMOBILE   FERRY   SERVICE
•BETWEEN BELLINGHAM (WASHINGTON) AND VANCOUVER ISLAND
A new route from the mainland to Vancouver
Island, of particular service to motorists using the
Pacific Highway, is the Automobile Ferry that has now
been p!aced in operation by the Canadian Pacific.
This ferry will, during the busy season, make two
round trips per day between Bellingham, Washington,
and Sidney, Vancouver Island, about 18 miles from Victoria, which is reached by a fine paved road.
The schedule for the summer season, 1924, commencing
July  3rd,   is  as  follows:—
Leave Bellingham.        7.00 a.m. 2.30 p.m.
Arrive Sidney 10.20   "      5.50   "
Leave Sidney 10.45    "      6.10   "
Arrive Bellingham    2.00 p.m. 9.30    "
From May 20 until July 2nd there will be only one
round-trip per day—leaving Sidney at 10.45 a.m., and returning from Bellingham at 2.30 p.m
The vessel, the "Motor Princess," is 1 70 feet long, with
high-powered Diesel Engines, and a speed of about 14 knots
per hour. It has capacity for about 50 cars, with ample
height between decks to allow for limousines, California tops,
and all classes of cars.
It is also comfortably fitted with ample observation
rooms and deck space, in order to allow travellers to enjoy the
beautiful scenery through the channels between San Juan,
Orcas, Lopez and other Islands. The sail from Bellingham
across Bellingham Bay, Rosario Strait, among the San Juan
Islands, and across Haro Strait to Sidney, is a most delightful
one, a sheltered voyage among the Islands for the entire distance. The steamer is equipped with a dining room and a
dance floor.
Arrangements are also being made for the operation of the
steamship "Charmer" between Vancouver and Nanaimo,
which will provide increased accommodation for the handling
of automobiles, and especially of limousines and other types of
closed cars. A new circuit tour is thus made available from
Seattle via Bellingham and Ferry to Sidney, thence Victoria
and by motor road to Nanaimo, taking in the Malahat Drive,
thence by ferry steamer to Vancouver, and motor over the
Pacific Highway to Bellingham and Seattle, or the reverse of
this route, motoring from Seattle to Vancouver, and return via
Nanaimo, Victoria, Sidney, and ferry to Bellingham.
CLEARANCE FOR AUTOMOBILES
The clearance for automobiles on steamers plying between
Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and Nanaimo is as follows:
