With these two livers naviiraMe lor s'ettin beats, after a course of several huiclre'l miles tliroutrll the Xeitile plain" of the wist nnil with an Increilihly rich coun try around, we can well Ininsine how the early site of the present city was so leeteil as a tiiuliiu; post ami fur mart liy the tnipiers of fie olil fur com panies two cent uiies u, ami limv it came to be chosen liy the Ill-fulfil im mitirnnts of Lord Selkirk'.) colony at the lieninniiii; of tlie century as a ileslr ahle lejjioii for veulement ami coloni zation .Ami nmre important than i 1 1, it is the 'half-way house1' mill slop ping place on this jrroat Interiu'tiona! hlMliuny, the Canadian I'aeilie roii roail. for through Winnipeg must bo nil thn freiuhl ami passeiiKors for the immense fertile regions westward ami across the continent to the I'eiTtic. In rhurt. Its tinparalleleil position makes It for nil time the Chicago of the Can adian nort Invert. It is the key to this vast empire, capable of sustaining in nflluence niu' comfort a hundred mil lions of people. Think of a tract of fertile land comprising the largest wheat fit M In the world at least nine hundred miles lout; and three hundred miles wide coverlne: an men of over two hundred millions noies to which Winnipeg Is the fiuteway. a NoimircuN cmcAcsa AVinulpepr Is a Chicniro so far ns "s, 000 iimliltious people are nlile to make It. Twenty years asn it was a snitiil, isolated settlement, isolated for a hun dred veurs In the heart of the contin ent, then a stru:i.'liutr village round the Hudson's Hay company post of Fort dairy, hundreds of miles from unywhore. After the advent of the first railway it rose rapidly within a few years to the proud position of one of the ten radiating railroads, which liranch, like spokes In a wheel, In all directions, patherliur the wealth of on Inland enr.iire to empty it at its feet. The nai:;atioti of the Red river, l.,ukos Winnipeg and Manitoha, the i;ii at Saskatchewan and oilier navic al'le Ft renins, makes tributary to it thousands of miles of Important coast line. Seventy-five per mil, of the wl. at land of North America Is di rectly tributary to It. while untold wealth of iron, coal, salt, petroleum, Kohl, silver, lumber, fish, timber, furs, horses, cattle, sheep, hoss, etc., kocs to swell resources and backing more va:t and varied than any possessed by any other city in the world. Jt supplies largely all the poods consumed between the Ued river and the Kooky lloim talns. Kew places have found such speedy recognition since the advent of the Canadian Pacific railway; In fact, this prairie city has distanced nil rec ords of booming towns. Its positive pre-eminence Is yearly liecominff more pronounced and com manding and today no other cliy in America Is attracting more attention annum capitalists und settlers, while anions,' tourists it Is one of the objective points or the trans-continental trip. It is the seat of Kovernment of the Key stone province of the Dominion and also the center of the political, social, literary, monetary and manufacturing world of the Dominion of the Cumuli in west, and the fountain head of the edu cational institutions of not only Mani toba, but the whole northwest. One say-:: "Wliinipr-j Is the grout mart of it country of nearly 2,000,000 ncrcs of rich territory, and one of the leading trade renters of Hie continent" A HEALTHFUL CITY. Ilecaiise of the flatncsi of the plains nil which the city stands Winnipeg Is not a "pretty city," but whin Is better, there is scarcely a more healthful city on the continent. The plainness is be ing removed, however, by a judicious planting of trees and boulevarding of streets, which greatly transforms the flat appearance of the town. The city is substantially built, superior hrlck find stone being available. The streets lire all wile and well laid out and named on a numerical system. Main street, several milog long, is 1112 feet wide and one of the finest in America, quite remindful of Kurlld avenue of Cleveland; but all this space is required for the street railways and the continu ous stream of trallic along It. There tire both elsctrin and horse cars In use. Winnipeg has ninny substantial buildings worthy of special mention. Especially .noticeable were the elegant residences and Immense public build ings In closit proximity to the primitive hut. and small buildings dating back to the early village days, also remind ful of American cities which havo grown up like magic. Armed with letters of introduction from (Jenoral , Kastern Agent K. V. Fklnner, of New York, and Charles N. Hell, secretary .of the board of trade of Winnipeg, (to the latter we are indebt ed for valuable Information), we rode and strolled ovir this entire prairie city during our four days' sojourn, and Visited the New Provincial parliament buildings, St. John's (Kplseopal) Col lege, Manitoba Medlcll College, Lieu tenant Coventor Sir ,'nhn Kchurtz at his residence and groends. Provincial Deaf and Dumb Institute, City Hos pital, City Hall, Court I Wise and Pro vincial jail, also Hoard o,T Trade, Grain Kxchutige, public markets, and on Sunday the principal churches, which comprise among the mo ft Imposing buildings of the city; also Kim and Imrferin parks, the hea!th--glvitig and pleasure grounds of the clt.V, of all of which J will speak later. FINE HOTELS. Among the numerous hotels the- Mani toba nnd the Leland are the most prominent, both seven-story structures of which Wlnnlpeggcrs are justly proud, and structures which would grace any city of any size on th? Ameri can continent. The Manitoba 1.3 owned by the Northern Pacific Railroad oom rany and striking as Is the appear; '.nee of the hotel and depot from me i n't side. the Interior is stlh well wor thy of praise. The depot platform and iin trance Is 200 feet long. Connected wi th the hotel are the general otllces of t be Northern Pacific Railroad company, be sides the commodious waiting roorrti baggage, freight and tickets otllces. L'. Is a magnlilci-nt structure of 210 feet frontage on Main street, with a ro tunda of 40 by DO feet. The dining room Is 50 by o feet, with a 2fi-foot celling. The structure Is heated by steam, lighted by electricity, and has every possible modern Improvement. The cuisine Is all that could be desired. Even an epicure could find no fault. The rates are from $3 to $7 per day. and under the management of Fred W. Sprado und his able corps of assistants we found It equal In every respect to e. iiy hostelry along the l.ne of this great national highway. PIIOSPKHOVS HANKS. Terhaps the best index to the pros perity of a city may be the number of financial Institutions within lis limits, together with Its churches and other public buildings, its wholesale and re- tail stores, its factoiies, its car shops, elevators, tic. Winnipeg has eleven chariered banks with u capital of forty-five millions, also all the principal loan companies la Kavtein Canada are here represented. If there is one thing more than another that the eith'.ens of Winnipeg are proud of, it is the excep tional excellence of their store houses and f-hops, from the commodious es tablishments f the Hiid.-on's Hay com pany to the Indian Haznur. where are found ail kinds of historical it lies and curios. Here this powerful mercantile corporation (Hudson's iuiy company) instead of exchanging beads and paint with Indian trappers, displays the lat est fashions in plate ylass show win dows and maintains a general store for city iRids. There Mores are Interesting nnd the hNfory of their early trading is the connecting link between the past and present. They impress one on enter ing as a combined government build ing and wholesale establishment, well worthy the reiiow n of the eonipai.y and the city. Here aie eighty w lioUs.ile houses with n capil.il of ten millions, nnd with annual sales of $J,"i ici't.iirti). liire are 1 went v-sven churches repre senting the various religious il. no ni nations, many of I hem verv imposing cillllc-s. Winnipeg is the seat of gov ernment and of tile law courts of Mani toba, and hero are located thi Domini on govt ii'iiient savings bank, thn Do minion o.'iic,'!' lor the province, and the heai!o!i.i iters of and chief post f the IliTil-ion's t'oy company, which sup plies ail outlying outposts "Xieniliog i veil to the Arctic ocean. Tile niMII nry power Is represented bv the tioop of Canadian dragoons, stationed at Fort Osborne in the city nnd it is f. lso tho headquarters of the military district and of a number of military cei ps. THE CttAIN TIIADE. The grain business is necessarily on" of the lirst m.igiiilnde. Nearly fven-ly-thii ii.illion bushels of w heat were Inspected and exported in ISM, and in lMi." Kl.TTn.lW bushels. As a natural complement to this, is the milling in dustry. Here in Winnipeg and tribu tary territory nre thirty-six roller mills with a daily capacity of eight thous and barrels am! in addition, as the headquarters of the Western division of the Canadian Pacific railway, live are over two hundred elevators, with a capacity of tipwa1-ds of seven million bushels, radiating from this trade cen ter. The car shops, freight sheds, land oflices, purchasing and other depart ments of tills division are also located at Win ni peg. and to crown all the Canadian Pacific railway are erecting a e.iiat "sorting elevator" of the cap acity of one million bushels to facili tate the handling of grain. As may be easily imagined an army of twelve hundred nu n lire cmpk-ynl by the rail way in the town and a fair idea of the magnitude of tlv. Canadian Pacilic railway Interests may be gathered when the reader learns that there are fmm tweuly to thirty miles of siding in the train yards In use constantly. Some ten Canadian Pacific railway lines radiate In all directions, two brunches leading southward on either r ide of the Ked rivi r to Emerson and '.iretiia on the 1'iiiled States boundary, and connecting with the Croat North ern railway. Two branches go south west into Southern Manitoba respect ively :,!) and 221 miles distant, and two branches run north and northwe st into the Hudson's Pay country, beside the old Hudson's Pay railway to Sho Kil lake, which is not operated. The .Manitoba division of the Northern Pa cific railway extends southward to Winnipeg Junction miles on the main line. OWNERS OF TIIE TOWN. This great domain "The Canadian Northwest" Is owned mainly by the Dominion government, the Canadian Pacilic railway und the Hudson's Hay company. The Canadian Pacilic rail way and the government ow n u bi It of land twenty-four miles wide on each side of the railroad between Winnipeg and the Kocky mountains. Those sec tions in the belt numbered even belong to the government and thp odd num bered sections to the Canadian Pacific railroad, liona fide settlers on either section can secure tin in for a few shil lings per acre for mo or more acres, and when certain easy conditons are tilled, letters patent are granted. Tno Hudson's Hay company, that mysteri ous power that for nearly two centuries has held dominion over a large part of North America, still own about one twentieth of the fertile lands of Mani toba and tlie Canadian Northwest, in all some seven million acres. Their lands represent sections clghtnnd twenty-six in each township and they have town lots in every important town in the country. Wherever tlie traveler or settler goes, he finds the Hudson's Hay stores the earliest pioneers distribut ed throughout the whole region. This company sells, leases, or rents its lands on favorable terms, or it Rives immedi ate employment to all hunters and trappers who do not care to settle any where. The settler may take up u wheat, an oat, or a rye or flax claim, or raise horses and cattle; he may lum ber, or tan leather, or mine coal. What ever his choice, he will find 7::,0HO square miles in Manitoba. H".000 gquure miles in Assiniboia, and loo.ono In Alberta, 122.IHI0 square miles In Athabaska, be sides the coast tract of Saskatchewan, of 114.U0O square miles, to select from now for sale by these powerful corpora tions. Ther are forty-six factories of differ ent kinds in Winnipeg, and with the cheap and abundant Knurls coal, near at hand, and the utilizing of the wast ed water power of the Assisiniboine river, there seems to be no reason why this prairie city cannot cope with any of the western cities as a manufactur ing center. Colonel Fanning, of Min neapolis, an engineer of hisrh r put i Hon, says: "The inducements for Winnipeg to m ike itself a great manu facturing center seem very great through the dv. lopment of its great water power which amounts to lo.omj horsepower, now wasted by the Asslni boine liver." PT'RLIC SCHOOLS. Recognizing the advantages of edu cation the citizens of Winnipeg have spared neither time nor money on tlie attainment of the highest standard of etliciency In their school system. The public schools of the province are na tional In character, recognizing no class nor distinction of any kind. In the city are sixteen admirable schools, free and of a high standard, under seventy eight of the most skillful instructors, with accommodations for fi.ooo pupils. The school board appropriates about J200.00D annually to maintain them. The Dominion government hns set apart one-eighteenth part of all the lantl of the province, the revenue of which goes for public school purposes. Tlie Provisional government makes an nual appropriations of one-fourth of Its entire revenue for school purpops. The bnlance of the cost is divided be tween the school district and the mu nicipality. Winnipeg has a system where there Is no break between the primary department of the public school and the possibility of university graduation. Aside from tho public schools there are four colleges feder ated under a government university and also private academies. ITS RELIOTOl'S LIFE. Any do--ct!rthn of fhe city of Win nipeg which did not Include a refer- iiice to its church nnd rellgioun life f.nd Institutions would he veiy Incom plete. Winnipeg has as good a claim to the title of "the citjof churches" as any city on the com h tent. It literally abound.- with hamlsoin f church edifices mid religious institutb ns it-presenting almost every shade of belief, twenty seven in all. Tlie Chuivh of England leads the number in biHh church ed ifices and membership. Jt has besides St. John's cathedral, six 'churches and several missions. Tl? 1'iesbyterlan Is a close second with svx self-supporting congregations and (three missions. The Mi Ihoilists also hui'e six. and the baptist have two strong churches and several missions. The first to enter this treat lone land was the Romun Catholic chuich in J ,;'G. :im! it has two large congregations within the city limits und across the Kitd river is the Roman Catholic cathidia I. St. Roniface. in tho French town St. .P.onifaee, to gether with the otlicial ; residence of Archbishop Fache (the 'head of the Roman Catholic chuich iJi the north wist) and several import. int denomin ational schools. Winnipi'S has suc ceeded In attract ins several thousand Icelanders, and the greater part of these are Lutheran in creeil. All these forms of Christianity are f '.mini work ing side by side, und on the whole in a spirit of lrleiullines;-, lor i;b re is much in unite people In the rommon ex periences of life in a neiv in ml. Whether from convict in h or habit, the Winnii'.eggers are careful in their attendance at divine servieeVand in the suppoit of the church of t.ielr choice, and their Sunday schools. I All their churches were well filled. Li'le Victoria and Toronto there is no i tinning of street cars on Sunday and 'tehicles of any kind are seldom seen, Ind while the Lord's day was one of cheerfulness it was without dissipation. A stranger can but notice ami be gialitll'd at the spectacle of so large ti number ot quiet. coinfortal.de homes and such Jn army of church going people. A mole order ly population, or ti more civil one, cannot lie lound. There was no-drunkenness nor disorder! and all class s were quiet, intelligent, respectful mul civil. Tlie liquor law is rigidly enforced. The saloon, the daiice-liouse. the (tumb ling hell are conspicuous by thiir ub seiice. It Is surely not an unr tiison aMo inference that it is larrrel ) be cause the church is u; that the shady institutions are down. Vi'ould thut the same micht be said of Ajnier ican cities. PLEASURE RESORTS. Pleasure, resorts are numerous in nnd around Winnipeg. Aside from the numeious lakes and lake scenery with in a radius of twenty-five miles, thfie are a dozen camping grounds urd nat ural parks nlons the banks of the Rid and Assinboine rivers, where the pic nic parties and campers can revel In enjoyment. Those are reached by steamboat and electric cars. A thre? miles' sail up the Red river brines the set Iter for rest and pleasure to "Elm Park," and five miles down the same" river brings him to "Frazer Grove," beauty spots unsurpassed. A rustic pontoon bridge spans the Red river here a slow sluggish stream peering Its way northward to the Hudson's Pay and Arctic Ocean. Winnipeg is mnking rapid strides af ter tlie reaction from the boom of lWt and no one can limit the possibilities of tirowth and development even in the near future. While today it is con ceded to lie the leading grain market In the dominion, Winnipeg has moral, social and religious elements of gen uine and generous prosperity. The immense resources tributary to It, tlie extraordinary railroad service, the un limited water power. Its advan tages as the capital of the Keystone Province of the Dominion, and the busi ness push and aggressive spirit of its citizens are a suiiiclcnt guarantee of permanency and prosperity. J. E.

Police officers were stationed at tho en trance of the pa'-sngoivsy le.i ling to the envoy's rooms, while ti detective la pl.iin elo'bea, armed with it swot il.nick, wis posted outside the door of his rooms. His Excellency having exprersed his ilesiro to have the Kwmig Lee brought alongside I lie Kmpi t.-H. so n to enable him lo trans ship without embarking on a steam launch. Captain Vnlb'.ce, of the Kwung 1-d.e, came on board und consulted oa the matter with Captain Archibald, nnd after the boits nnd iluvlts on the port side nf the Empress had been tn-Btilpped and fenders swung over the side the tlckll.-Oi and dilllcult nuutlcul feat of bringing the t.maller vessel alongside the big liner wis iiihleved by Captain Wallace in a thor oughly etamtinllke manner, without rcralch on the paint of either fhlp. By 2 o'clock or so the two vessels were along side, anil the task of transferring the bun--:ige of LI ami his suite to the Kwang l.co was begun. This job v no rlne cuie, n Li's staff and retinu of cook und other servants numbered about sev enty, and the burgage comprised 1,020 She.S aw It in a grocer's window N i She Bought It! She Tried It!

FAIRBANK COMPANY,"1" rnmim. Hum. packages and weighed sixty-seven tons. It wus u bo ut as miscellaneous as It was numerous, and included quite un aviary of birds, from the sweet-singing little canary to noisy and liursh-volced toucans and .parrots in huge cages. The buggagp doubtless Included niiiiiy presents received by tho envoy In the course of his visits to the courts of Europe; indeed, his pres ents from Queen Victoria alone are said to have amounted lo nearly 0.0uO In value, the amount estimated to be the value of the gifts sent by the emperor of China to tho queen. It took something more than an hour to transfer all this baggage through the after starboard deck port of tho Empress to the Kwung Lee. After the task was accomplished, about 4.) o'clock, his Excellency prepared to follow. MET UY HIS SON. After donning his hut, he was assisted bv iwo members of his suite Into a sedan chair, which was brought to the door c.f his cabin, und he was then carrk-ed by four stalwart sailors of the Empress, as sisted by some Chinese bearers, down the sail way onto tho main deck and through the ihvk port on the Kwang Lee, where he was received by his son, LI ChlilK-mal, Captain Wallace, Mr. Pethick and others, und conducted to his quarters. Tho whole of the arrangements during the recep tion und transfer of the Illustrious states man to the KwaiiR l,ee vvre admirably conducted hy Captain Archibald and Mr. Payne, agent of the Canadian Pacific railroad, who was Inilefatlsablo In his ef forts for the comfort of the august pas senger. Kitting the afternoon u display of day fireworks was made from a lighter tower by a launch around the ship, while a band on board the lighter enlivened the affair with mush;. These attentions were we understand, provided in honor of LI Hung Chang by the Japanese Traders' Guild. At 9 o'clock la night the Kwang Lee left the harbor for Tientsin. Doubtless had the Empress of China arrived In port this morning, as hud been expected, in stead of yesterday, a number of officials would huve been down from Tokio to ex change greeting Wiln the envov. and a salute would have been tired In his honor. Hut Captain Archibald appears to have decided to let his distinguished passenger see what all Empress boat could do, aril pus hed her on, and not only made up tho twenty-five hours' delay In starting from ietorla, but arrived eighteen hours ahead of schedule time. During the vovage from letorln. we learn, Li took his meals in his own room, but otherwise made him self very agreeable and cordial to his fellow-passengers. Ho frequently walked the upper deck of the Empress, llghllv supported on either side by the arms of mi m bi rs of his suite, and appeared to thoroughly enjoy his surroundings and tho splendid weather experienced.
