HIS MAJESTY THE KING
Message to the Oversea Dominions
[Bassano
I
desire to express to my people of the Oversea Dominions with what
appreciation and pride I have received the messages from their
respective Governments during the last few days.
These spontaneous assurances of their fullest support recall to
me the generous, self-sacrificing help given by them in the past to the
Mother Country.
I shall be strengthened in the discharge of the great responsi-
bility which rests upon me by the confident belief that in this time of
trial my Empire will stand united, calm, resolute, trusting in God.
George R. I.

HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
O
UR Gracious Queen has always taken a deep interest in Canada and
Canadians, and her visit to Salisbury Plain with the King was deeply
appreciated by the officers and men of the Canadian Contingent.
Queen Mary followed with special sympathy the establishment of the
Canadian Military Hospital at Shorncliffe, which is named after her, and the
successful conclusion of this work was a source of much satisfaction to her.
Like other mothers throughout the Empire, the Queen has bravely
sent her sons to strive for the cause of justice, and on sea and land they have
taken their places in the greatest struggle of all time. Her example in so
adequately ensuring that those left at home should be well looked after,
and the solicitude and sympathy she has extended to all classes, have been
an inspiration to the women of the Empire.

Foreword
to
Our Canadian Brothers
I cannot express the pleasure I have in dedicating this Souvenir
Number of Canadian News specially to the men who are so splendidly fulfilling all
that the Imperial spirit implies to and demands from British subjects, for, although
many of you are Canadian born, yet you are all Britishers, and it is the
realisation of that unity of spirit which makes the British Empire the enormous factor
in world politics it is proving itself to be day by day. I do not presume to tell
you what your duty is at the present moment, because you have long ago proved to
us by your actions that you have realised this duty fully. What I want to say to
you is this, without a doubt you have set an example which history will hand
down to the generations yet unborn, and which will inspire the children of the
future with hope and courage for any emergency which may present itself in the
dim and far-off future. You are going out to perform great deeds, and we know that
Canadian men will do honour to the country which gave them birth.

His Majesty's Message
to the Canadians
F
OR all time our gracious King has placed on record the sentiments of the
people of Great Britain at the splendid loyalty and devotion to the Empire,
which prompted the despatch of the Canadian Contingent to the aid of the
Motherland. After reviewing the Canadian soldiers on Salisbury Plain,
King George issued the following memorable message, in which he expressed the
deep feelings of all Britons :
" It gives me great pleasure to take this oppor-
tunity of welcoming to the Mother Country so fine a
contingent of troops from the Dominion of Canada. Their
prompt rally to the Empire's call is of inestimable value,
both to the lighting strength of my Army, and in the
evidence which it gives of the solidarity of my Empire.
The general appearance and physical standard of the
different units are highly creditable. I am glad to hear
of the serious and earnest spirit which pervades all ranks,
for it is only by careful training and leading on the part of
officers, and by efficiency, strict discipline and co-operation
on the part of all, that the demands of modern war can be
met. I shall follow with interest the progress and work
of my Canadians."
No Sovereign of this country ever possessed so close and personal a knowledge
of the British Empire as King George. His frequent and extensive journeys through
the Dominions have been the occasions of enthusiastic loyalty on the part of his
peoples, but it is to be doubted if he has ever witnessed so spontaneous an expression
of loyalty and affection, or such an inspiring proof of Empire solidarity.
Few of those who were privileged to take part in the ceremony will ever forget
the experience. Here, in this magnificent parade of Canadian stalwarts, was the vivid,
convincing, practical expression of a determination to participate in the responsibilities
of the Empire ; here was the pledge of sacrifice for the Empire's good and glory.
For the first time a Canadian Army was encamped in old England for the purpose of
sharing her trialsthough it was not the first time that Canadians have fought in
her battles. And now, in the fullness of time, these gallant sons of Empire had come
to the home of their fathers, andfor many the first timewere face to face with
their King. From all parts of the Dominion, from all classes in the Dominion, they
had sprung to the call. What a message was that day sent out to the world ! What
an inspiration was given to the forces of Britain already in the field ! What a warning
was conveyed to the enemy !
Then came that last great scene. Down the serried ranks, through the lengthy
avenues of formidable defenders of his flag, passed the King. Out of the silence of
the big Plain rose the resounding cheers and echoed away into the distances. One
could not look on without emotion. Looking very proud, the King took his farewell
of his troops, and carried with him to the cares of his great office the solace of the
affection of which such convincing evidence had been given that day. And the
Canadians. For many a year will the story of the King's day with " My Canadians"
be told from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Lord Kitchener's Message to the Troops
War Office, Nov. 9, 1914.
Dear Sir,
I suggest that you repro-
duce the message which Lord
Kitchener addressed to the
troops of the Expeditionary
Force when they left this
country for France. The
terms of the message are, of
course, equally applicable to
the Dominion contingent
when they join the forces in
the field.
Yours very truly,
H. J. Creedy,
Private Secretary.
" You are ordered abroad as
a soldier of the King to help
our French comrades against
the invasion of a common
enemy. You have to per-
form a task which will need
your courage, your energy,
your patience. Remember
that the honour of the British
Army depends on your in-
dividual conduct.
" It will be your duty not
only to set an example of
discipline and perfect steadi-
ness under fire, but also to
maintain the most friendly
relations with those whom you
are helping in this struggle.

The operations in which you
are engaged will, for the most
part, take place in a friendly
country, and you can do your
own country no better service
than in showing yourself in
France and Belgium in the
true character of a British
soldier.
"Be invariably courteous,
considerate, and kind. Never
do anything likely to injure
or destroy property, and al-
ways look upon looting as a
disgraceful act. You are sure
to meet with a welcome and
to be trusted ; your conduct
must justify that welcome and
that trust.
" Your duty cannot be done
unless your health is sound.
So keep constantly on your
guard against any excesses.
In this new experience you
may find temptations, both
in wine and women. You
must entirely resist both
temptations, and, while treat-
ing all women with perfect
courtesy, you should avoid
any intimacy.
Do your duty bravely,
Fear God,
Honour the King."
KITCHENER,
Field-Marshal.
Message from the Chancellor of the Exchequer
Treasury Chambers, S.W., Nov. 25, 1914.
Dear Sir,
I wish you good luck in your admirable journalistic
enterprise.
One of the most gratifying features of the terrible conflict
in which we are engaged is the readiness with which the great
Dominions beyond the seas have sprung to the aid of the
Motherland in the greatest hour of her need. We are pur-
suing no selfish endeavour ; this is a struggle for liberty, for
upright dealing amongst nations, for fair treatment of the weak,
for every principle which lies at the foundation of human
progress ; and it is full of hope for the future, not merely of
the Empire but of the world, that the men of our blood and
race in every hemisphere have rallied to the standard of Britain.
Canada is playing a part worthy of her noblest traditions.

In 1910 I inspected the Canadian Forces, and I look
forward with great pleasure to the day when the Contingent
sent from Canada will join the Army under my command,
as I feel sure their services will be invaluable. In sending these

Canada's Position in the Empire
N
O thoughtful Canadian soldier can confront the historic associations of Salisbury
Plain without asking himself : What do I and my Country represent in
the Empire, and what position do we hold in the long history of England ?
These reflections are forced upon him by conditions of life that are
absolutely new and undreamed of in all his previous experience, and by surround-
ings that are as unexpected and as unimagined as undoubtedly they are ancient,
stimulating and suggestive.
The ordinary dweller in a little prairie town or even in one of the great Cities
of the Dominion possesses, as a matter of fact, a far keener realisation and appreciation
of what Imperialism and Imperial spirit mean than does the ordinary Cockney or the
dweller on the Wiltshire Downs upon which the Canadian soldiers are now encamped,
but, nevertheless, even the sturdiest son of Canada has never been able to realise and
to verify what it actually means in daily life to be a citizen of the British Empire, as
he is forced to do now, when he has volunteered to take up arms and cross the
seas to fight for the safety and the whole maintenance of that Empire as he is fighting
or about to fight for it to-day. And, therefore, he asks himselfWhat is Canada
to the Empire and what am I to Canada ?
The Dominion of Canada represents the Empire at its highest and best. You
cannot picture to yourself any portion of the British Dominions which is more
important or which is a more stately part of the Empire than Canada. She may be
described as the first and last word in British Imperialism. Canada's voice in
matters Imperial grows daily stronger and of greater importance, and I trust that
when the war is over we shall see Canada officially represented in the highest Council
of the Empire. By coming forward in the splendid and generous fashion in which
she has done, she has demonstrated not only her own magnificent loyalty to the good
cause of Empire, but she has declared before all the world her true position as
regards that Empire. She is not a sleeping, but an active, I had almost written a
dominating, partner in the greatest Empire the world has ever known.
It is equally important that each individual Canadian, and especially that
each individual Canadian soldier, should realise his own individual responsibility both
to Canada and to the Empire at large.
I would bid each of you dear Canadian boys, very respectfully and very
affectionately, to remember that each of you is, in his own distinct personality, an
ambassador of Canada, an ambassador of the whole Empire. Remember, all eyes
are upon you, you represent a magnificent Country ; take heed to it that every man,
whether here or on the Continent, shall say when he beholds and knows you this is
indeed a citizen of no mean city.
" Civis Romanus Sum " : the old Roman had no prouder boast than that.
Well, you are Canadian born ! It is up to you, young men, therefore to show
the whole world, let alone England and the Empire, what it really means to be
Canadian born. I am a great admirer of Canada and the Canadian people, both
of whom I know well, and I am confident that you will do yourself and your
Country the honour which we all expect from you. In this war it will devolve
upon each of you more than ever it has devolved upon Canadians either individually
or in the mass to demonstrate to the world Canada's position with regard to the rest
of the Empire. I want you to gain for yourselves and for your Country an ever-
lasting name and an undying fame. Your time of trial is at hand, and there is not
a Canadian now on Salisbury Plain who will flinch from it. As you press forward
in the battle charge let Nelson's famous words ring in your ears : " England expects
that this day every man will do his duty."

Valcartier Camp
THE LASTPAY DAY
I
N recounting the military activity of Canada in the great European war, his-
torians will undoubtedly place emphasis on the ability and expedition with
which Valcartier Camp was prepared. The dry details of this achievement
have already been inscribed in the archives ; but these cannot do justice to the
willing service, the tireless zeal, and the unexcelled vigour with which this work was
prosecuted.
The decision to send a Canadian Contingent to Europe found Canada without
a military camp, in a convenient location, sufficiently capacious to accommodate
the brigades of the Dominion, and the first link in
that glorious chain, which eventually landed the flower
of Canada's manhood on Britain's shores, was the forma-
tion of such a centre.
The work was pressed forward with zest and en-
thusiasm, and this immense task was brought to a
successful issue in an incredibly short space of time. The
propelling force was that same patriotic fervour which
has permeated all Canada's activities in this period of
stress ; the same factor which has caused the men of a
nation, remote from the area of conflict, to engage in the
most gigantic struggle of all time. It has been well said
that if the energy, intelligence and resource used in the es-
tablishment of this camp are the symbols of the general
excellence of the force, and have their counterpart in the
other branches of the Canadian Army, then the fighting
machine which the Dominion has sent to the battlefields
of Europe will more than worthily sustain the glorious
traditions of the race.

AT VALCARTIER
High British military authorities have already paid a well-deserved tribute to
the splendid conception and efficient execution of all details of this work. Canada,
indeed, created another record, in a sphere not eminently her own, and Valcartier
stands out as a typical expression of the genius of the New World. No greater contrast
can be imagined than between this picturesque plateau in the province of Quebec and
the camp at Salisbury to which the Canadians came. In Valcartier was incorporated
everything that military knowledge could suggest and the unlimited resources of
Canada could supply. It can hardly be correctly described as a camp, which suggests
a temporary arrangement. It possessed the conveniences of a modern city ; and the
happy combination of military and municipal arrangements and facilities was a
triumph of organisation. Above all, the brief period of time in which the work was
done fully justifies the praise which has been accorded to those who were responsible
for the plan and its execution.
In addition to the preparation of Valcartier Camp, another interdependent
problem, to which brief reference must be made, faced the military and railway authori-
ORNAMENTAL COLLAR BADGE
WORN BY CANADIAN SOLDIERS
tics of Canada. This was the transportation of the
soldiers and their equipment to the rallying place.
This, too, was solved in a completely satisfactory
manner ; yet it presented difficulties which are not
encountered in similar work in the small, compact
country of Britain. As Major-General Hughes
pointed out, the soldiers were concentrated at
Valcartier from widely distant points, and many of
the troop trains crossed a continent of two to three
thousand miles to their destination. Here the same
propelling force was at work, and it can be well
understood that, from the Presidents of the great
transcontinental railroads down to the bottom
grade of employee, it was recognised that there
was being carried the most precious freight en-
trusted to their care : the men who would stand in
the fields of Armageddon to save the Empire.

READY FOR THEIR ENGLISH QUARTERS
ON PLYMOUTH HOE
The Canadians Arrive at Plymouth
F
OLLOWING their concentration and preliminary training at Valcartier Camp,
the Canadian soldiers embarked on steamers for the second stage of their
journey to Europe. Down the majestic St. Lawrence River from the secret
rendezvous at Gaspe Bay, this fleet of thirty-two transports steamed in the
late days of September. Never in the history of the world had so large an army
been brought across the Atlantic, and under the protection of the British Navy the
journey was accomplished in safety. Plymouth was their destination, that ancient
seaport from which, centuries earlier, Drake and his captains watched the approach
of the ill-fated expedition of Philip of Spain. Theirs was no formal, official reception;
and from their unrestrained, vigorous welcome, which has ever been the tradition
of Old Devon, the men of the Dominion could measure the extent of Britain's
intense gratitude and relief.

Salisbury Plain
O
F all the historic centres of Great Britain, none could have been more fittingly
chosen for the assembling of the Canadian Contingent than Salisbury Plain.
It is literally true that in its very stones and mounds is written the history
of Britain ; the first fabric of Empire was very largely patterned on these
bleak plains.
Students of Salisbury and its surroundings glory above all in its historic
romance. Without doubt, it was once the home of a people far more remote than
the Romans. The earliest Britons, the Saxons, the Romans, all had a part in it. It
contains the alphabet of the life of vanished and forgotten peoples ; it belongs to
the early twilight history of this country.
The old Roman roads, which can still
be traced, and Vespasian's Camp remind
us of our ancient heritage. Here all the
great figures of early British history have
taken a part in the conflicting effort of
their time, and it has been the scene of
the most glorious as well as the most
ignoble deeds.
It was here that the Saxons stained
their reputations with infamous treachery
to their hosts when, at a sign from Hengist,
they plunged their concealed daggers into
the breasts of the Britons. Here, too,
history has it, Queen Guinevere closed her
sorrowful life, and Lancelot, her knightly
lover, conveyed her body to the holy
abbots at Glastonbury.
Perchance little attention is devoted
by the soldier of the Dominion to these
somewhat misty signs of a departed nation.
Quite properly the work of a fighting man
is not concerned with the study of a long-
bygone age, but with the pressing emer-
gency of the moment. Nevertheless, the
attraction of ancient things makes no
stronger appeal than to residents of the New
World, and few of those Canadians who have
been encouraged to become acquainted
with the storied past of Salisbury Plain

have not been quickened in their impulses and impressed in their imaginations by
learning of its rich historical associations. Many who have heard of its interesting
records for the first time have hastened to communicate them to their relatives and
friends in the distant Dominion, whose deep interest in the doings of the Canadian
boys here, and everything connected with them, is largely the reason of the issue of
this publication.
It is in its military associations that the Camp at Salisbury makes its most
immediate appeal to the Canadian soldier. Always have the armed men of Britain
gathered together on this plain to determine measures of force. Here was devised
the system of campaign against the earliest invaders of Britain ; here the ancient
warriors wrought plans of such military skill as almost brought to naught the over-
powering forces of the Danes ; here, when the Celtic races flooded in upon the original
inhabitants, did the chiefs of the tribes take troubled counsel together. And when
Caesar and his Roman legions came, the towering fossesthose hundred feet high
walls of earth piled up by this primitive peoplecontinued to endure unimpaired
the shock of the attacker's fierce onslaught and to challenge his military dexterity.
It was at this camp, too, that the Crusaders were so vigorously exhorted by their
priests to give themselves, their souls
and their bodies, to the Holy War, and
to sacrifice all, even life itself, in order
that they might snatch Palestine from the
clutches of the Saracens.
And now, after the passing of
many centuries, we behold another armed
forceby far the most important of them
allseated in this ancient camp, pledged
to a not less holy mission: to support
the Motherland to repel the Hun ; to
give armed weight to the doctrine of the
sanctity of the written bond ; to punish
the destroyer of holy places and the de-
spoiler of weak women ; and to impose
on an imperious and arrogant race the
tempering influence of a milder and more
just rule. For this purpose have the
Canadians come. And thus, in their way,
the lads of the new Dominions Overseas
will write a new chapter in the long-drawn-
out history of England, and will weave
new patterns into the glorious flag of
the British Empire.

T
HE lamented death of Field-Marshal Earl
Roberts was nowhere more deeply re-
gretted than among the members of the
Canadian Contingent, of which he was the hon-
orary colonel. One of the last official events of
his life was an inspection of the Canadian soldiers
on Salisbury Plain, to whom he made the follow-
ing stirring address :
" It is an intense pleasure to me to be able
to come here to-day as your honorary colonel and
to give you a most hearty welcome to the Mother
Country.
[ St uar t
EARL ROBERTS OF KANDAHAR, V. C, O.M.,
ETC., ETC.
" We have arrived at the most critical moment of our history, and you have
generously come to help us in our hour of need. Words fail me when I try to tell
you how deeply we appreciate your action and the splendid spirit of loyalty which has
prompted that action. Three months ago we found ourselves involved in this wara
war not of our own seeking but one which those who have studied Germany's litera-
ture and Germany's inspiration knew was a war which we should inevitably have to
deal with sooner or later.
" The prompt resolve of Canada to give us such valuable assistance has touched
us deeply. That resolve has been quickened into action in what I consider a marvel-
lously short space of time, and under the excellent organising and driving power of
your Minister of Militiamy friend Major-General Hughesyou quickly found your-
selves in a fine camp in your own Laurentian mountains, where your training and
musketry were able to be carried out in the most practical manner and with the least
possible delay ; the result being that to-day, less than three months from the declara-
tion of war, I am able to greet this fine body of soldiers on English soil.
" There is no need for me to tell you that you have a stern task before you.
We are fighting a nation which looks upon the British Empire as a barrier to her develop-
ment, and has, in consequence, long contemplated our overthrow and humiliation.
To attain that end she has manufactured a magnificent fighting machine and is strain-
ing every nerve to gain victory.
" In her determination to be the ruling Power in the world she has not scrupled
to break faith with the smaller nations, and has shown by her actions that she is
prepared by every means in her powerhowever unworthy and brutalto achieve
her purpose. It is only by the most determined efforts that we can defeat her.
" When the time comes for you to take your place in the field you will find
yourselves fighting side by side with the men of our Regular Army, who have already
done great deeds and endured great hardships ; with the men of our Indian Army,
who have come with such devotion and eagerness to take their share in defending
British interests ; and with men who, like yourselves, are coming from the other self-
governing Dominions to co-operate with us.
" I need not urge you to do your best, for I know you will. For you will be
fighting in the greatest of all causesthe cause of right, of justice, and of liberty. May
God prosper you in the great struggle."

The Imperial Highway in War Time
W
E all know how the Canadian Pacific Railway has helped to make a nation,"
said the present King (then Prince of Wales) in an historic speech at
the Guildhall on May 3rd, 1908.
When an uncensored account of the Great War can be written, it
will be found that the part played by the Canadian Pacific Railway has helped
materially in the conquering march of the British Empire. For at the outbreak of
the war, the President, Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy, was able to offer to the Government
perhaps the most perfect organisation in
the world, controlling fast ships capable
of being turned into armed cruisers and
transports on the Pacific and the Atlantic,
nearly 19,000 miles of track for transporting
men and supplies across and from Canada,
and a telegraph system of over 100,000
miles of wires.
On the Pacific, the magnificent new
steamers the Empress of Russia and
Empress of Asia were at once requisitioned,
transformed into auxiliary cruisers and
have done good work, sailing the Pacific
seeking for vessels carrying the German
flag. Three other C.P.R. steamers on the
Pacific, the Empress of Japan, Empress
of India and Monteagle, were also later
requisitioned by the Government.
In the Dominion itself the patriot-
ism of the Canadians surpassed all bounds,
and when the call went forth for volunteers
to serve in an Expeditionary Force, from
every district in the far-flung Dominion
men offered themselves in far greater
numbers than were required. It was de-
cided to form the base camp at Valcartier,
and then came the question of transporta-
tion. At once the C.P.R. stepped in and
placed their 19,000 miles of track at the
disposition of the Federal Government.
The arrangements made for the handling
of and caring for the troops en route to
Valcartier were carried out without the
slightest disarrangement of time-tables.
The public were in no way inconvenienced
and a great service rendered in a supreme
crisis. New commissary cars were actually
constructed by the C.P.R. Dining Car
Department, in each of which from five
SIR THOMAS SHAUGHNESSY, K.C.V.O.

was able to offer to the Government fleets of steamers on t he At l ant i c
and Pacific, and 19,000 miles of rail t rack.
to six hundred men could be fed three times daily with the greatest facility. By
such means thousands of volunteers were transported to Valcartier from the
West and far North and indeed all parts of Canada.
Although the first Canadian Expeditionary Force was to have consisted of
20,000 men, so intense was the enthusiasm that actually when it sailed it consisted of

33,000, and naturally for their journey across from Canada to the Motherland the
boats of the C.P.R, were called in to help. The Ruthenia, Monmouth, Tyrolia,
Montezuma, Virginian and Montreal formed a part of the largest fleet of liners to cross
the Atlantic at one time, the Empress of Britain having already been requisitioned by
the Government.
Previously two C.P.R. boats had done good work in bringing refugees from
Antwerp to England, and their cargo boats had brought from Canada vast supplies
of grain and other foodstuffs to feed the people in this country.
The Company itself was not satisfied with what it was doing in this way, but
wanted to take a personal share in the fight for freedom. Many of its employees wished
to go to the front, and the President announced that those who joined the colours
would receive full salaries for six months and that their positions would be kept open
during the war. Considerably more than a thousand C.P.R. men in Canada and the
United Kingdom have already joined the forces, and every day the number increases,
whilst those left behind cheerfully shoulder the work of their comrades who are bearing
rifles in the cause of liberty.
Then again, the voluntary contribution made by the officers and employees of
the Canadian Pacific Railway to the Canadian Patriotic Fund of one day's pay in the
month of September amounted to the fine total of $140,316.71 (which amount
includes the sum voluntarily given by officers and employees of the Company in the
United Kingdom), to which must be added the sum of $1,421.93 contributed in the
same way from the Dominion Atlantic Railway, the line owned by the Company in
Nova Scotia.
In view of the fact that this contribution was collected from all districts served by
the railway from Atlantic to Pacific, and from C.P.R. offices in the United Kingdom,
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy wrote to Ottawa asking that credit in the distribution of
this sum should be given to the various provinces in the following proportions:

GOVERNMENT AS AUXILIARY CRUISERS

British Columbia, $18,000; Alberta, $18,000 ; Saskatchewan, $15,000 ; Manitoba,
$28,000 ; Ontario, $28,000 ; Quebec, $28,000 ; New Brunswick, $5,316.71 ; to Nova
Scotia the sum already noted of $1,421.93, and to the United Kingdom $615.
The " one day's pay " idea initiated by the Canadian Pacific has proved one of
the most fertile fields for the Patriotic Fund, as it was adopted by a large number of
firms as the most practical method of enabling all classes to contribute according to their
means.
This contribution is entirely separate from the sum of $100,000 voted by the
directors of the Canadian Pacific Railway to the fund, and to the large sums given by
directors and officers in their individual capacity. During the campaign week for the
Montreal branch of the fund over $10,000 was collected in Windsor Street Station,
over and above the contributions under the one-day's pay scheme.
The Company has also contributed 1,000 to the Prince of Wales' Fund, and the
staff in the United Kingdom have voluntarily agreed to contribute a small sum from
their salaries, the amount from this source coming to over 40 each month.
In spite of all, it is perhaps superfluous to add that business is being carried
on as energetically as ever. In the West the Land Department of the C.P.R. is selling
large tracts of land to American settlers, and has inaugurated a campaign to persuade
farmers to reap the benefit of good wheat prices next, year by placing larger acreage
under cultivationthis, according to the Westminster Gazette, is of paramount import-
ance to the Empire in the present world struggle. The construction department of
the C.P.R. has taken on for a time 6,000 additional hands to alleviate unemployment,
and here in Great Britain two new ships, the Metagama for the Atlantic Service and the
Princess Irene for the British Columbia Coast Service, have recently been launched,
whilst the magnificent steamer Missanabie was the first ship to leave these shores on
a maiden voyage to Canada since the outbreak of war, and she sailed with a full
complement of passengers.

CANADIAN NEWS SOUVENIR EDITION
Government statistics go to prove that as a result of their freedom
from anxiety, annuitants are the longest-lived persons in the whole
community. It therefore behoves those who would go through the
winter of their lives devoid of penury to BUY AN ANNUITY. Before
venturing on a purchase, would-be Annuitants must Firstly: Make
absolutely certain that the Association they are dealing with is per-
fectly sound and reliable. Secondly, get every assurance that they are
obtaining the best value for their money. Such an Association is the
Confederation Life Association.
Live
