Already many Millions of dollars have been spent :by the Canadian Faclnc Railway Com- tiany for the equipment of this great Pacific port and now the great trans- jortation concern is about to make au outlay of in Improving Its wharves. Further development, plans are in view. an'! the company Is in- the happy position of being able to deal with Import and eiport traffic Independent of any other concern. As a consequence of the building up of Us interests in Vancouver, In TiAW of the fact that the company has a very large fleet of trading ves- sels on the FaclBc, It is in a situation to deal with the new trade develop- ments of the Dominion with Russia, at the same time continue to handle the gigantic Oriental trade yith Its customary promptitude. United States business men are at present sending agents to explore the commercial circles of Russia, with a view to securing a market for Amen- ran goods, and also for the purpose of purchasing some of the products which Russia can export, and which are very necessary on this continent. Keen observers In the United States eeize on the present as an opportune time for extended trade wltb Russia via Vladivostok. It Is with a view towards the greater development of trade with Russia that the Canadian Pacific Hallway appointed Jlr. A. R. Owen as their general agent at Vladivostok. Mr. Owen will look after the great of tra-Tlc that the C.'P. R. Is hardline to and from Russia, and he also look Into the..possibilities Increasing trade between Russia Canada and the United SUtu.

Mr Devenish also expressed the be- lief that artesian wells may be found all over the country southeast of the ,ity which will result in better homes being established by the farmers.
