A working arrangement was made by tlio C. P.'Ri With the original promoters, who are Americans, or re- present American ci'pital, by which the traffic business Is equally shared. This is'one of the alternative routes which line C. P. R.lh'as provided. The Kootenay Central, which will probably he finished this fall, is another.
