R, SHIPBUILDING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA If history can be relied upon It fa just one hundred years since the first ship was bujlt on thoPacific Coast ot  Canada. A century and a quarter . passed \\-ithout lirtnging tbo Industry to any Immense projlj'ftiohs, but within the last few years shfpbiui.ld-ing has advanced in British Columl^ia if by magic. In tlie summoMt 1916 there was one ship, to be valued at halt a million dollars, in process o( construction in the . province; At present the Industry represents an investment of $30,000,000. Nine large vessels, the product of British Columbian enterprise, are now satliag the seas, and thirty-three others, six of which are of steel .construction, are either being built or have, been contracted tor. - The incentives for these gigantic Btri^ in BriUaa Columbian ship-"" building have been the demand for ocean tonnage created by the German 'submarines,, and the many i extraordinary facllilles which thogeograpbi-cal situation ot British Columbia and her forest resorts offer for the shipbuilding trade. It was for these reasons, thai tile Imperial Munitions Board selected British Columbia, to build twenty-fiva vessels. . British Columbian shiiibuildlng Is "carried p;i mainly, at Vancouver and . Victoria, but XewSWestminsto* has a yaVd ot considerable pr^ortlons at Poplar Island, v.here four ot the ships : ordered by the Munitions "Board are being constructed., The classsj" ot ships being built are divided into schooners and steamers. T^e majority are built mainly of wood, but several are made principally lof steel. At present the shipyards' of Victoria, Vancouver, and New "VVestmlnstarare engaged In building iifty, of those vessels, which will have a groBS tonnage of. 116,980, and a aeadweight capacity ot 185,000 tona. The cost ot tho material alone, that must bo applied for the completion of these ships is estln||ted at 11,700,000. In order to finance the shipbuilding underta1wlth � view to secnvlng orders. Some optimists even gooo (arDBtosay that the great ships of the, Canadian /Paolfle Ocean Services, now plying between Vancouver, I'VIctorlai and Countries ot ilio East, -when they have lived thcli' allotted time and done their appointed work, may be replaced by other liners, Just- as' m^g-niOcent, that may be built In the shipyards of the Canedian Pacific - Coast, for it is i^t likely that 'Indus-tilous British Colutnbia,Will ever relax Its hold on an undorUk)iiv,that baa tasun so auspldouslv- ^ Driving Away a Boche Plane.-Anti-aircraft gtln*^ in action. ________ H -Photo hy Courtesy of C.
