Canadian Pacific Telegraphs Stands Up Against Storms The Canadian Pacific is able to show record in the mat- ter of the' iatergrity of its vast tele- graph system during the wind storms which have prevailed more or less constantly for Mie -past month. The telegraph system embraces some 000 miles all over the country. It may he said to have had Its commence ment before even the railway' sys- tem itself. The original, thought, in regard to the building of the moun- tain section of the company was that it rwould use the Yellowhead Pass, which was the recommendation of Sir Sandford Fleming. That route, how- ever, was not used, but another. How ever, the telegraph has actuality pre- ceded the track laying along .what was supposed to he the first named route, and (has been-maintained ever since, as have other stretches used in the inception of the system, like the advance posts of an army. Only in one instance during the wiud has there been interrup- tion of and 'that was between.. Halifax and Tniro.-. ?Thli Immunity is dufe, undoubtedly, to the efficient t of niamtainance which maiks the telegraph as it marKs oilier department! of the astern The telegraph Department4'is kept in the highest possible state of efficiency tLe year rouuuf IXIMs wiles aie not spared, these are- needed, but the nhief poasidpriHon to hue the service Wady for use at all pciuts, and at aU 'seasons. It .requires a large staff of men and the outlay of large suras oE money to accomplish this efficiency, but the record is worth a good deal to the company. The Canadian Pacific, was on tlie ground witih its .telegraph system when the prairie was a wilderness, and it looks weeks for letters pass from one part of .tho country to an- other. The system began when there seemed little- hope of paying business along districts of country where the foot of a white man1 had never, trod- There was immense endurance hardship and courage needed and practised to undertake and carry on this work in advance of civilization, as it might, be said. The men em- ployed in the early days had to sleep out in the open, live upon what they could get, Ifve and work in absolute solitude. They penetrated forests, forded the. their linea over in-lakes, and, .in a word, enacted their parts -bravely, and heroically under the most trying circumstances from human contact for months, in the depths of tho forest "on the wastes of the prair- avant couriers of civilization. They commenced', and others per- best telegraph system in the world; best for the integrity that marks it. In the report recently lianded in at headquarters the remark which is' at once modest and truth- ful, is made that no other system has shown, during the prevalance of tho recent storms, anything like the se- curity and uniuten-uptioh disclosed by this company's telegraph system.
