of the pioneer. At Banford a dozen

The growth of pbpultlon iii the
northwest has distanced all census
counts. During three years it Is es
timated by the Canadian govern
ment authorities that the province of
Manitoba has gained no less- than
50,000 to 75,000, making the total of
the province between 300,000 and 325,
000. The territories, It Is estimated,
have Increased in population about
This growth is witnessed in each
town. Saskatoon, which two years ago
had but 300 people, today has be
tween 3,000 and 4,000. Winnipeg had
42,000 In 1901; at a recent census It
was found that It has 85,000. and
every loyal citizen of the town Is kick
ing because he thinks the count
should have shown 100,000. He is not
content with an Increase of 100 per
cent in four years.
Within six weeks actual work will
be commenced on a branch of the
Canadian Northern railroad which
will extend to Hudson Bay. Chief
Engineer McLeod told your corres
pondent that he expected to complete
some 90 miles of road this summer.
The distance to be covered Is about
300 miles; the road will run from
Prince Albert to the most available
point on the bay.
The bay Is open for navigation dur
ing the winter months. In summer
the Icebergs drift down from the polar
regions, rendering navigation extreme
dangerous. It Is expected that event
ually a short outlet will be found for
the great Canadian wheat belt for
shipping by water to Liverpool by
this Hudson Bay route. The distance
by this route would be 1.000 miles
less than any route now followed. .
