Worth Knowing (Information For Passengers)

The line of the Canadian Pacific Railway extends across Canada from St. John, New Brunswick, on the Atlantic Ocean, to the City of Vancouver on the Pacific Ocean, and it is the only transcontinental railway in America whose Passengers are carried without change of, cars from tidewater to tidewater.

It is the only system of railway "from Ocean to Ocean" under one management. Upon the Atlantic, this company operates a fleet of 14 ocean liners to and from Europe, and on the Pacific, a fleet of io steamships between Vancouver and China and Japan and Australia.

The recent great development or the Canadian Pacific System carries it beyond mere local interest to a position commanding the interest and admiration of the whole world. The Canadian Pacific Royal Mail Service, "The Overseas Mail " between London and Yokohama, Japan, and Hong Kong, China, is faster than by way of the Suez Canal.

The voyage from London and across the Western Hemisphere to Vancouver is made inside 11 days; from London to Yokohama. 23 days, and from London to Hong Kong, 29 days. The voyage from Liverpool to St. John, N.B. [the point of debarkation in winter] is 300 miles shorter than from Liverpool to New York. The Company already land Passengers from England to all interior points on the American Continent quicker than is done via New York.

The Natural advantages of the Canadian Route, the excellence of the accommodation provided on the C.P. R. Steamships and Railm ay, under one aggressive management, combine to make the C.P.R. route between Europe and the Orient the most attractive.
