N, WILL GET IT Northern Securities People Believe Hill line Will Get Vancouver Terminus. Mr. Hill Expects Canadian Coal to Supply the Demands of the Northwest. Special to The Journal. Now York, Sept. 4.Northern Securi ties people are elated over the result of the Injunction suit brought by Canadian Pacific to prevent the Hill lines from reaching Vancouver, B. C. They recog nize the fact that the Canadian Pacific will certainly appeal the case, and they rather expect that pending the appeal the progress of Great Northern will be blocked. They are quite confident, how ever, that the ultimate result will be a Great Northern entrance on Its own terms into Vancouver, which is regarded as a most important point in connection with the trans-Paciflc trade. A representative of Mr. Hill says: This building- Into Canadian territory is not to be regarded as a reprisal for Canadian Pa cific or Soo aggression. It Is simply the work ing out of the destinies Mr. Hill mapped out long ago for his northern lines. He has long regarded the entire sound shore, from Vancouver to Olympia, a legitimate field for hiB enter prise. When, a couple of years ago, be seriously turned his attention to the problem of trans Paciflc traffic, he took steps to provide himself on entrance Into Vancouver. The reason is simple enough. It Is easy to see that with Van couver entirely in the hands of the Canadian Pacific Mr. Hill would have a powerful rival Indeed for his Pacific trade right at his door. He recognizes the possibilities of Vancouver and Victoria as twin heads of a Pacific trade that might easily rival his own from Puget sound portB. He is not going to make the slightest effort to thwart the destinies of these cities, but he is determined that if they are to become great emporiums for Chinese and Japa nese merchandise he is going to be on hand to help' them to become such. school shoes $1.50, Misses' fine vici kid lace, Good year welt, excellent shoes for wear, per pair $2 Misses' box calf school shoes, pair. $1.50 For fall wear all styles and all leathers for La- dieB and Gentlemen. School Suits Don't send the boy to school with shabby Clothing. It doesn't pay. We can fit any sized boy with a good Suit at moderate price on easy payments. NO MONEY DOWN FORTY-TWO STORES */&&**' &3KK& In a word, the entrance of the Great Northern into Vancouver means that the Hill lines will have a share in all commerce across the Pacific from every port north of Olympta. There is nothing hidden or difficult to see In the policy that he is following in the far northwest. It is not exactly aggression, but is his well-worn and often-expressed policy of "going wherever there is business." The business that is taking him into Vancouver is the trans-Paciflc trade that may ultimately find its proper head in that city. Tha line that Hill is running from Grand Forks, B. C, up the Semilkeneen river, thru Princeton and Yale, is being run because he sees there a great coal business. Government assays of coal from that territory show that it produces the finest product of bituminous coal on the continent, next only to the Fernie grade. Ultimately the line will doubtless follow the line of the Fraser river into Vancouver, mak ing a short route from Spokane and all points east to the latter city. In going after coal business, Mr. Hill is looking a long way in the future. In his mind's eye he sees the day when the coal fields of British Columbia will supply the industries of the entire northwest with fuel, will operate every railroad west of Salt Lake City and north of San Francisco, and will even reach Chicago. He does not believe that that day will come until the markets of the .United States are thrown open to the products of the British Co lumbia mines. He believes that the present tariff on British Columbia coal tends not only to hamper the operations of tne northern rail roads, but also to restrict the commerce and manufactures of northern cities. He does not see why in his competition with the Canadian Pacific,, and In his efforts to build up a tre mendous traffic across the Pacific ocean, he should be handicapped by being compelled to pay a heavy duty on his fuel in addition to prices at which the Canadian Pacific can procure Its fuel.. .He does not.believe that this will always he the etfcae.. For that reason he is building Into thd coal .temtory (i^a expects, in the nearluture *ttt far more tfenti dovi^i._ti*o--'t0jbt"n oc*a:-$on-., hage a way"Beyond-the MisflourFiftvet, ttistf "evens*^rbi^tigHirdecided^ati"once Into the twin cities anil Chicago In fajt Mr. Hill believes that the great fettHC'of - east-bound tonnage on the Great Northern ten years from now will be coal, mined in the company's own lands in British' Columbia, brought across the border free of duty and delivered by his car riers in the cities of the west at prices that will - defy competition.

Plans for the production of something even more pretentious than "The Viking" of the season of 1901-2 or "The Queen of the Ballet" of last season -were discussed by the members of the Roosevelt club at Holcomb's hall last night.

A letter requesting, in no uncertain language, a definite guarantee of assist ance or a refusal of the same from each member will be sent out to the members of the famous club and at a meeting two weeks hence definite action in reference to the coming season will be taken.
