Montreal, Dec. an inter- view C. M. Hayes, President of the Grand Trunk Pacific, which is fminced by in London and Speyer Brothers in. New Yo'irk, gives-ah .account of his ob- servations during a Unr of inspec- tion which' took him vo Prince Ru- peit, the-; western tennnal of the nevp Canadian line. In answer to questions, Mr. Hay- Oanadian voter has replied to them. Tlit Dominion Government is, as you know, our partner in the enterprise, and to denounce a minister for reck- less extravagance is all right and pro- per from the viewpoint of an opposi- tion. But our expenditures have not been excessive, nor beyond the mea- sure of our obligations to the govern- ment and the community. "Bear in mind, please, that rail- roads are not now built, as the ear- lier transcontinental roads were builr, up hill, dc-vn dale, or an un-! ballasted roadbed of mud. Such un- economic methods" were permissable when there was a mere handful of ranchmen and trappers to serve, and when the promoters' objective was Emission 15c AND 25c THEATRE ferfofiH ces STRICTLY UNION THEATRE es said: Mr. R.

These are very remarkable figures I am aWare, and I accept the responsibility for putting them on record. You can read in these figures the reason for our so-called generous expenditures. The interest on the cost of such a line will be returned to us ten times over in the economy of operations and in the increased safety of. our 'passen- eers. expect that dur easy gradients which are due not only or chiefly to our generous expenditure, but- to our possession of the Yellow Head Pass through the Rockies, will in a few years., twist around a great por- tion of the wheat export trade of tish Empire. So at least a friend of mine assures me, who has recently seen both. He even gives the palm to Prince Rupert. Our route cute off to the Far 560 miles from New York, compared with San Francisco route, and the saving of two or three days will often decide the choice. The climate of the place is neither hot in summer nor cold in the mercury rare- ly, if ever, goes to zero. We shall sell the lown site of Prince Rupert to the public next Spring, probably in May. We own three-quarters and the Gov- ernment of British Columbia one- quarter. "Already there are a couple of very comfortable hotels, a weekly news- paper, The Empire, and some two thousand people. I believe that town will iu its early and rapid growth outstrip anything thus far on the Pacific. It is a back door to a great continent. Vancouver, to rock its cradle had people, Prince Rupert has Today Can- ada's people instead of- emigrating across the southern border are be- ing received by daily additions from C. GRKY LETHBRIDGE, ALTA the Northwest, and with the open- ing of the Panama Uanal in 1914, send wheat to Europe Get alone to Asia) by way of the Pacific." Mr. Hayes proceeded: Divert Wheat Traffic to Pacific "At present the wheat crop is either hurried to the ports on the j Great-Lakes, Duluth, Fort William, and Chicago during the few weeks TSetween threshing and closing of lake navigation in November, or it is held up for six months in elevators! at a considerable cost, or again, if if is carried through to the eastern seaboard in winter, when the St. Lawrence route is closed by ice the long haul heavy snows makes the operation difficult, costly, and even disastrous both to the rail- way and to the farmer. "Westbound from Saskatchewan and Alberta to Prince Rupert, the grades are easy; there Js very little snow in winter, so that -when the Panama Canal opens in six years I look to see Prince Ruperi one of the very best grain ports of the world. I have more than once ventured prediction that in my lifetime we shall haul to the Pacific as much grain as we shall haul to the Atlantic." Mr. Hayes declares that this diver- sion of traffic would not seriously diminish the earnings of the Eastern division of the Grand Trunk.'1 "The volume of said he, cat of the new Northwest, if we may judge from the -way set- tlors are already swarming in, will throw far more business upon our existing lines than they can possibly handle. The present cultivated area is but six million a mere patch this, on a farm of thrc-e hundred mil- lion acres. As yet wo have but scratched the surface. We shall re- quire very shortly to do -what the Canadian Pacific is already doing in 'Manitoba, that is, double track our nxu! to onabte us to handle the traf- fic. Thus the diversion of a largo portion of the far -western wheat trade will advantage every section of our road; it will even enable u.s to give settlers much lowor rates, because we shall even up our loads, sending full cars both east and west, instead of only east. While we send cattle, .grain and minerals west to j Prince Rupert, we shall haul back east the coal and lumber which the j settlers on that Ihrw hundred niil- lion acre farm need. south of tlie line."
