Distances VISIBLE at Sea
At an elevation of 5 feet, one can see 2.6 nautical miles; at 20 feet, 5.1 miles; at 35 feet, 6.8 miles; at 50 feet, 8.2 miles; at 75 feet, 9.9 miles; and at 100 feet, 11.5 miles.

If the steam from a ship's whistle is seen and ten seconds elapse before the sound is heard, she is just 2.1 miles off. If one second elapses, she is distant slightly more than one-fifth of a mile; if five seconds, a little more than one mile; if twenty seconds, 4.1 miles.

Point the hour hand of the watch to the sun, and south is exactly half-way between the hour hand and the XII on the watch; e.g., assuming it is 9 o'clock, point the hour hand (indicating nine) to the sun, and the point half-way between X and XI is due south; or assume that it is 4 o'clock, point the hour hand to the sun and the figures II indicate south.

Knots and Miles
The statute mile is 5,280 feet.

The nautical mile is 6,082.66 feet. The number of feet in a nautical mile is arrived at thus : The circumference of the earth is divided into 360 degrees, each degree containing 60 nautical miles; or 21,600 (360 x 60) nautical miles to the earth's circumference; 21,600 divided into 131,385,456—the number of feet in the earth's circumference—gives 6,082.66 feet—the length of a nautical mile.

The " knot " is a rate of speed indicating 1 nautical mile per hour.

6 feet-1 fathom 10 cables-1 nautical mile

600 feet-1 cable 1 nautical mile-1.15 statute miles

There are three kinds of measurements of ships by tonnage—Gross tonnage, NET tonnage and DISPLACEMENT tonnage.

Gross tonnage is the total internal capacity below the upper deck, and also of all enclosed deck houses above it, measured in tons of 100 cubic feet. For example-2,500,000 cubic feet equal 25,000 gross tons.

NET tonnage is obtained by subtracting from the Gross tonnage all spaces used for the accommodation of the officers and crew, for gear necessary for the working of the ship, and for the machinery, including boilers and engines.

Displacement tonnage is the total weight of water displaced by a ship when loaded to her utmost capacity.

Railway Ticket Office.

A Railway Ticket Office is located on board this steamship. The Ticket Agent in charge is at the disposal of Passengers to furnish every assistance in connection with inland rail journey.

To facilitate landing arrangements at port of arrival it would be appreciated if Passengers would kindly note the following information and call at the Ticket Office as early as possible during the voyage.

  1. Orders issued in Europe and calling for railway transportation from port of landing or otherwise are not good on trains, but require to be exchanged at the ship's Ticket Office for actual railway tickets
  2. If passenger already holds railway ticket issued in Europe, attention is particularly directed to the necessity of having same stamped on back, in space provided, prior to arrival at port of landing, as train conductors are not authorized to honor any unstamped tickets
  3. Railway Tickets to all destinations in Canada and the United States may be purchased at the Ticket Office at special fares
  4. Reservation of sleeping or parlour car accommodation for railway journey may be made in advance, on application to the ticket agent

Department of Colonization and Development

The Canadian Pacific Railway has established a Bureau of Canadian information as a branch of its Department of Colonization and Development, with the object of disseminating reliable and up-to-date information as to agricultural and industrial openings in all parts of Canada.

Western Canada Farm Lands
The Company has yet for sale several million acres of choice farm lands in Western Canada, at low prices and on long terms of payment. In certain districts lands will be sold without settlement restrictions, but the Company is prepared to grant special concessions to those who will settle upon and develop their farms.

Eastern Canada Farm Lands
Lists of selected improved farms, available for settlement in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, with the names and addresses of their owners, may be obtained on application at any office of the Department.

Industrial Investigation and Research Investigations, looking to the utilization of undeveloped natural resources and waste products and new industrial processes, are being carried on by the Research Section of the Department. Inquiries as to promising fields for investigation in this connection are invited.

Industrial Openings
Reliable information as to sites for new industries in all parts of Canada, and of special business openings in the growing towns and cities along the lines of the Canadian Pacific Railway in both Eastern and Western Canada, will be gladly furnished on request.

Canadian Intelligence Service
Well equipped Canadian reference libraries have been established by the Department at Montreal, New York, Chicago, and London, England.
