JOO Gash For A Name America's greatest railway corporation, the'-Canadian Paoi.fiC Kailw.ay been forced through the tremendous increase of its western business to establish-a new city on the Pa- cific Coast for freight and industrial terminals, seventeen miles fronvYancoimir. The site, as is well known, is .located in the rural immioipality of C'oqnitlam. The Ooquitlam Terminal Compam7, Ltd., capitalized at which .sold to the Canadian Pacific .Railway Company the land required for the terminals, reserved for itself for townsitc pur- poses the acre's enclosing the terminal properties, A .name is required to distinguish this townsite from the remaining' sixty-four square miles in the municipality of Coquitlani. A. city of at least people will soon spr'nig up here and the importance of a worthy name is obvious. It is equally important that the name he established soon, as it is planned to place the townsite on sale some time this fall, but it sljonld be understood that no lots are offered as yet. We desire the assistance of the public jn the of 'choosing the name. Although cash is surely a 'generous offer, it'is still a wise investment on our part-to induce I: he many readers of this paper to strive far the for the reason that we-will .have I lie sugges- tions of thousands of brains, and a responsible and competent committee will then, decide, upon tlie' winner. 11 needs no argument to show that the or more employees of the C. I'. .R. with their families will form a community, a dity, in every sense of the word. THE CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANY lias already spent about a million dollars for the purchase of twelve hundred acres which Chey' require Tor their own use, and as stat- ed before, a well-selected name for the com- ing'city, which has been the'talk of British Columbia and Canadiitn railroad circles for the utmost, importance. This will be'a new the Pa- cific and Um 'greHtest railway corpor- ation in America will have a monthly pay- roll there of five hundred thousand dollars, or This, of course, will attract busi- ness men, ttndcemen and professional men, who, together with the employees of the railway company and their families, will at once make n thriving city, and give In the near future-a population of at least The C. P. R. 'with its usual window, Imi selected this Bite, for its western terminals and repair shops, for the reason that in all Pacific 'America there Is not another place ao well sitiiatud for the purpose, aa well as for the numerous manufacturing plants that are sure- to come. With true level land, the transportation facilities of the Pill and Frnser Rivers (here simply arms of the ocean) tho Industrial spurs of the C. P. R., tlm olieap electric and splendid trans- portation facilities, the site will be irresist- ible to manufacturers. ..Now thll is likely to he won hy the plain working man or his child HB it. in to be won hy (he highest honored college gradiiHle. of our grentcil inventions hiive been discovered hy the working clnsw.

In fact, more so, for the former are jn t.he to one in every commun Hy. We would remind you that tlie most pros- perous cities in the world are the cities in which great railway systems have their ter- minals, repair ehops, etc. Tlie reason for this IB that there Is constant, uninterrupted work every day in the year for the men, and the majority' of these men are skilled me- clinnlci, thrifty, home-loving workers who receive not only permanent, employment, but higlicr pay than the average wage earn- er. The constant, unvarying prosperity which Minneapolis and St. 1'aul enjoy is caused largely by the fact, that the terminals and repair shops of the Great. Northern Railway, the "Soo" Line, tine C. M.
