quarter exceeded the expenditure
by eight or nine hundred dollars.
For tho purpose of clearing off tho
outstanding debt of the Company, a
proposal to sell additional shares
found favor with the directors pre
sent. About 1,800 shares of the

VALUE OF THE AUSTRALIAN TRADE."
As we exported 89,225,459 of our
products to Australasia during 1884,
or $4,843,994 more than wo import
ed from there, not including 83,
004,344 in specie, the trade is too
much important to be lost, and the
withdrawal of the Pacific Mail steam
ers will be a national misfortune.
It has been our boast that the short
est route from England to Australia
is by way of the United States, but
after November 1st such a boast
will be impossible, unless the deci
sion to withdraw the steamers from
San Francisco to the South Sea colo

THE CANADIAN NORTHWEST.
A TRIP OVER THE CANADIAN PACIFIC
Mr. W. C. Van Home, vice-president
and general manager of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, together
with Mr. R. B. Angus, Mr. A. B.
Chaffee and Mr. L. N. Benjamin,
has just returned from a tour of in
spection over the whole line. Ac
cordingly a representative of tho
Gazette called upon
MR. L. N. BENJAMIN
with the object of ascertaining his
views on our great national high
way, and of our Northwest country.
Mr. Benjamin expressed himself as
highly pleased with his trip. He
never saw the country looking bet
ter. They went as far as tho Pem
bina mountain rango in Southern
Manitoba, and found the country as
well settled as the northern part of
Dakota. The Mennomte settlements
were a great success. Speaking of
the crops, he said they looked ex
ceedingly well throughout tho conn
try through which they travelled,
and the probabilities were that the
farmers of Manitoba would have a
surplus of 5,000,000 bushels of
wheat for export this year. Re
ferring to the Rebellion ho said that
one did not sec any effects of it to
speak of, along the line of the road,
except tho Bell farm, the managers
of which had sent a good many
horses for use in the transport of
troops und provisions. Tho party
went as far as tho summit of tho
Sclkirks, going three miles beyond
the end of the track, which is laid
210 miles west of Calgary. From
the end of tho track to tho Onder
donk section the road is nearly all
graded, the laying of the track being
delayed by reason of a bridge which
is being built over tho Stony river.
Tho character of the road was first
class, both as regards permanent
way and equipment. The heaviest
grade on tho road is on tho west
side of the Rocky mountains, hut
the grades as a wholo aro very
easy, so much so that if passengers
were not told of tho fact tliej' would
dot perceive it while traveling on the
road. He had seen heavily loaded
freight trains of twenty-three cars
drawn by ono cngiue como into
Winnipeg while ho was thero. Re
verting to tho business outlook ho
said the merchants of Winnipeg
were in splendid spirits as to tho
prospects of trade, and tho appear
ance of tho shops and streets when
ho left Winnipeg on Saturday indi
cated prosperous times,
hot sulphur SriUNGS.,
Mr. Benjamin described somo hot
sulphur springs which had been dis
covered about half a milo from
Bamff station, in tho Bow river dis
trict. Ono of tho springs is situated
on the sido of a mountain, entrance
to it being obtained from the lop by
a ladder, by which a descent is made
into a large cave. There is a natural
terrace four or 'five feet in width
round it which is formed from the
alkali and other substances held in
solution by the hot spring. Below
this terrace of alkali there is a
shelving two feet in width, and in
tho center aro tho basins containing
the water which boils up at a tem
perature of 85 degrees C. About
two miles, further on, on the summit
of the mountain, thero is another
hot spring which i3 in the open air
and it boils up at a temperature of
105 degrees C. From tho time that
they left the end of the track until
they reached Montreal tho party
traveled 2,480 milc3 and over. Tho
wholo portion of tho road, with tho
exception of about 30G miles between
Nepigon and Biscotassing, trains
can be run at the rato of fifty miles
an hour if need be. The party went
from Calgary to Winnipeg, a dis
tance of 841 miles, in twenty-one
hours and forty-seven minutes, in
cluding stoppages. They left Win
nipeg at 8.37 in the morning, and
had tlioy not been delayed for an
hour by a hot box on tho road they
would havo reached Port Arthur at
7 o'clock in the evening. They left
Biscotassing at 3.15 on Wednesday
morning, arriving at 9 o'clock the
samo evening. From the time they
left (Montreal until their return they
traveled 5,400 miles, covering the
distance in a period of 209 hours.
While on the road they averaged
025 miles per day.
MR. A. B. CHAFFEE
was also seen, and he stated they
had visited all the places to the end
of the track, 1,250 miles beyond
Winnipeg. The track was a splen
did one, and they made quick run
ning, the average mileage being
forty miles per hour from Winnipeg
to tho summit of the Sclkirks, but
sometimes they went a good deal
faster. On the return journey they
drove from Calgary to Winnipeg, a
distance of 840 miles in 21 hours
47 minutes. This portion of tho
line has been thoroughly completed,
ballasted, and the grading is almost
imperceptible. Indeed, said Mr.
Chaffee, the heaviest grade on the
whole line is at Ilochelaga. There
had been some heavy work done on
the section from Port Arthur, round
the north side of Lake Superior, and
if the Opposition in Parliament
would only adjourn and go and see
what had been done, they would
come back and vote more money.
In six weeks from to-day there was
no reason why the public should
not take the ears at Montreal and
travel direct to the top of the. Rocky
Mountains at a uniform speed of
forty miles an hour. The station
houses in the Northwest provinces
were well built, the road was splen
didly furnished and the rolling stock
was in thorough order. In southern
Manitoba the crops were looking
rich, and farmers say they were
three weeks in advance of last year.
In many cases the wheat and oats
had headed. Tlic whole country
was looking fine. Tho valley be
tween Calgary and the top of the
Rockies could not be equalled for
fertility in the continent of America,
and here thousands of acres of the
virgin soil had been broken up for
cultivation. The soil is a rich black
mould, probably of from ten to
fifteen feet in thickness. Tho graz
ing was splendid and a large num
ber of fine cattle, in thorough condi
tion, were noticed. Ho did not
think that, even in imagination, any
one had as yet taken in what the
future of the great Northwest coun
try would be. There was laud of
tho most fertile nature in abundance,
which would support millions. Ho
thought if tho people of tho province
of Quebec only understood what tho
country really was, they would to a
man vacate the province and make
homes for themselves in tho Far
West. It was a grand place for
young men who were starting in tho
world. All tho excitement caused
by tho Northwest troubles had sub
sided, and things were going on as
usual. In conversation, ono hardly
.heard the matter mentioned. The
party had lovely weather during
their trip, and enjoyed themselves
thoroughly. Montreal Uazette.
