Montreal, Canada, July 8. Canada
Is about to draw upon the United
States for the largest part of an
army of 42.000 laborers to build its
new trans-continental railroad. Part
of this immense force will be un

The new Grand Trunk Pacific, as
it is to be called, is to have a man
from "the states" for its general man

from the Wabash. The actual, prac

Missouri and Iowa. He is known
among railway men as a "track ge

CANADIAN CITY OWNS
FORT WILLIAM CHASED THE BELL TELEPHONE PEOPLE OUT OF

Fort William, Ont., Canada, July 8.
This Is the one city on the Ameri
can continent whicir owns all its pub
lic utilities, including its street rail
way system. And In this place public
ownership is an unqualified success.
To jump Immediately to results dur
ing the last year, the city paid half
the taxes with the profits from tho
street railroad. The snug sum of
128,01)0 was written eff to that account
after paying all operating expenses,
and putting by a comfortable amount
for the sinking fund. And the people
are perfectly content with the serv
ice. If they were not, they would soon
remedy matters by firing the commis

practically one city of about 13,oon in
habitants, but like Chicago, divided by
a bnrall river. In this double city, the
people own and operate water, elec
tric light, telephone and street car
systems., The consequence is that a
residence elephone costs $12 a year,
an unlimited business telephone
about $12 a year gives unlimited elec
tric light service for a residence of
.six to eight rooms, and tuu water rate
averages about $8 a year to the or
The city has owned the street rail
way system tor nearly fourteen years.
The telephone system is the latest
municipal undertaking. There are now
1.100 subscribers, and the second year
shows a balance on t;re profit side of
the ledger. The installation of tho
municipal telephone system was ac
complished only alter a spirited fight
with the Bell Telephone trust. The

It was early discovered that the
new Canadian road could not be built
without American brains, skill and
labor. The projectors of the road re
cently struck a snag due to the im
portation of alwut fifty civil engineers
and surveyors to lay out the line.
Tiie Canadian engineers Invoked the
alien labor act, (which, by the way,
was passed in retaliation against the
United States for the law excluding
Canadian laborers), and the whole
batch of engineers was seized and
deported. They quietly slipped over
the border again, and plunged into
the woods where their duties lay. The
Canadian ant iiorities found it difficult
to follow them Into the virgin forests
of the Northwest. Meantime, all the

ASKED SIMILAR FORFEIT OF R. R.
Considerable irrterest. was aroused
in this city today by tho report that
the $3,0(Ki special train from Kos An
geles to Chicago, over the Santa Fe,
bearing Walter Scott, the million
aire cowboy of Death Valley, Cal.,
was to pass through Albuquerque.
An investigation of the report at
the headquarters of the Santa Ko in
this city, however, revealed tho fact
that the deal with Scott, who want
ed to hire a (special train from ls
Angeles to Chicago for the sole pur
pose of establishing a new world's
record for trans-continental time, was
Bluffed the Officials.
The reason there was "nothing do
ing," Is because Scott bluffed out the
officials with his sensational offer. He
agreed to pay $5,oio for a special
train, consisting of a Pullman and a
diner, and to give the road an extra
bonus or $.V(0, if the trip was made lc
forty-eight hours, and the sum of
$J( for every minitt.i undr forty
eight hours, provided the railroad
company would forfeit $0 for every
minute exceeding tho forty-eight
Hut the officials balked at this, so
the deal was all off. The reason ad
vanced by tho officials for refusing
the tempting offer made by Scott, is
that the Sarrta Ke is not making wa
gers. The best special train record be
tween these two oiiits is that of the
