will enter John Splan's stable. Al
though tho mare was purchased by
Armstrong it is not thought by the
posted division that ho owns her,
.but who tho man is that put 0,000

THK I1KITISII DOMINION.
The following correspondence
from Mr. J. W. AVcbb, written dur
ing his trip to Indianapolis and re
turn, was detained in tho malls, nnd
has been laid in a pigeon hole for
two weeks, but on re-perusl we find
it of so great interest, that wo print
it at this late date.
After leaving Winnipeg, the Cana
dian Pacific railroad runs through a
vast prairie country, witli occasional
towns, some of them of a sbeto make
one wonder, what supports them,
wheiv the region is sopnrsclvscttlejl.
At one point we were- close to an im

supposed to be thousands of feet
thick, completely filling an immense
chasm between two high mountain

TheEnglish nnd Canadian govern
ments are actively stimulating im
migration to these vast plains, and
tho province of Manitoba ami tho
territories of Assinlboia and Alberta
will in a few years hold a larger
population. The grass, grain, coal
nnd mineral resources are very ex
tensive. Our train was quite cosmopolitan.
We had immigrants direct from

and Sweden; the Scandinavians un-

owing to tho wide spread advertising
none oy inose cities; some JJiitlsn
capitalists tarried in Vancouver, tho
others drifted off to other points in
Washington or spread out to Oreiron
and California. At Tacoma copies
of the Portland board of trade im
migration circulars were freely dis
tributed. Vancouver is a littlocinnt. Barelv
two years since all but a couple of
nouses were swept out of existence
by a fire. Now she has a poplation
equal to that of Salem, a largo ami
handsomo brick and stone hotel,
magnificent business blocks nnd fine
residences. Other solid bulldinirs
are going up: not an empty store is
to ue seen, rite railroad is making
big improvements in tho way of
wharves, hotel, workshops, etc. Tho
city, also, will spend $100,000 in im
proving streets: tho water works
company a similar amount, and con
tracts are let for many largo build

are sent on the outward voyage.
Dr. L. A. Port and others who in
vested in Vancouverinltsinciploncy
were certainly far sighted: property
there still improves in value.
Went over to New Westminster
to return my brother's visit, who
was at Salem two months ago. It
is quito n flourishing place, sup
ported by lumber mills and salmon
canneries. Being Sunday, I found
myself booked for a lecture before
the Y. M. C. A. nt 4 o'clock, and for
a Union Gospel Toniperanco
meeting nt 8:15, after tho churches
were dismissed. The people- turned
out in largo numbers and pressed
for a lecture on Monday night, but I
had already telegraphed appoint
ments for Tacoma. so could not stop.
Tho Sound is a grand sheet of
water. It reminds one of tho St.
Lawrence nnd the Thousand Isles,
only that tills is on so much larger u
scale. It was most of tho time as
smooth ns a mill pond. Seattle and
Tacoma aro of wondrous growth,
nnd very substantial, too. Tho busi
ness activity on their streets strikes
tho visitor with wonderment.
A trip like this mnkes one feel a
broader, wider, deeper conviction
that wo of Oreiron and Washington
have as yet but a faint conception of
