Reglna. N. W. Territory. Sept. 12.
IWhile at Calgary we saw the last of a
hlpment of 5,000 cattle from one ranch
put on board of trains for Eastern
markets; also, the fourth train loaded
with tea, etc., from the steamer "Km
presa of China," enroute for the Knst.
These trains, It seems, have the rlRlit
of way over everything-, and travel at
an average rate of thlrty-flve mllea an
hour from ocean to ocean. While the
passenger trains run on good timo now,
we are told that the management In
tends putting on a still faster service,
that will shorten the trans-continental
trip from twenty to twenty-four hours,
Which with the fast Atlantic and Pacific
steamship lines, will put this route from
Occident to Orient, already the short
est, Immeasurably In advance of all
Resuming our journey from Calgary
(the capital of the province of Alberta)
we leave behind us the grandeur of the
"Sea of Mountains" for the wide open
prairie for a thousand miles. The whole
view changes from this point. Looking
north or south and westward Is the far
golden, remote wide West, full of won
ders, plcturesiueness, wild lte and ad
venture. To the east the prairies, level
as the placid sea, or, rolling like the
ocean in its stoms, Btretcn unbroken
By a gradual descent of twenty miles
to Langdon, the railway falls to the
valley of the Ilow river. A run of twenty-six
miles along the grassy plains
brings us to Namaka. where Is located
one of the largest and most productive
farms of the Canadian Agricultural
company, giving nurture to vast herds
of high grade and pedigree stock of all
kinds. Here the prairie is seen to ad
vantage, as a billowy ocean of wild
grasij, with farms and cattle ranches
spread over It.
LAST OP THE BUFFALO.
These grassy plains whre the buffalo
once roamed bv millions, are now dotted
With wheat fields, checkered with plots
of Intensest green, or golden yellow
grain, or, the black furrows of plowed
loam, while here and there tall elevators
stand by the track like light houses on
the level sea, and the only reminders of
the herds of buffalos that used to black
en these prairies are in the melancholy
piles of bleached bones besides the
track, which are gathered from all over
the buffalo country and sold at two
dollars a cord to be shipped to sugar
In this Immediate vicinity the entire
country 18 underlaid with two or more
beds of good coal and natural gas, es
pecially at Tllley and Langevin. where
are several wells of gas, burning bright
ly, which is utilized in pumping water
for the Bupply of the railway, and light
and heat for the station houses, and it
la said will soon be used In reducing
the silver ores from the mines.
Arriving at Crowfoot, station, we get
our last glimpse of the Rockies some
one hundred and fifty miles away a
high blue wall barring the western hor
izon, with Jagged spurs and snowy
peaks. This station Is on the border
land between the districts of Asslnibola
and Alberta. We have been traversing
the broad domain of Alberta for nearly
three hundred miles, and enter now the
Rreen uplands of Asslnibola, through
which weshall travel five hundred miles
to the western limits of the province
of Manitoba. (A more general descrip
tion of these various provinces of the
Dominion I will defer.)
We are now In the country of the
once dreaded Blackfeet Indians, the
most handsome and war-like of all the
Indian tribes, now peaceably settled
on their reservation south of the rail
way at Crowfoot Station. This Is a
large reservation containing many hun
dreds of square miles. The Bow river,
whose tree-lined banks we have been
running parallel to, passes through it.
At the station some of these ochre
painted Blaekfeets are seen amid thn
red uniforms of the "mounted police,"
which formed a picturesque gather
ing, together with the squaws selling
their beads, blankets and buffalo horns.
For 106 miles to Medicine Hat. thi
country is more rolling and the rail
way descends to a prairie plateau of
2.150 feet In altitude. Nothing is seen
for miles and miles but great stretc.les
of undulating pi fries, with occasional
herds of cattle t,.'azing on the knolR
A source of pleasure, and one especial
ly enjoyed by all was the exquisite
prairie flowers noticeable here. Ox
eyed daisies, lovely red lilies, wild or
chids and sun-flowers mingled together
in such harmonious profusion as to call
forth exclamations of delight as the
train rushed through this wild garden
of the dominion. The gray wing of the
solitary eagle is seen and here and
there the dark form of a lonely In
dian appears. Here the buffalo former
ly roamed In great numbers, a fact
shown by their, deep, narrow trails,
marking the prairie in long lines and
saucer-like hollows, where the shaggy
monsters used to wallow; and strewing
the plain in all directions are the whit
ened skulls of these noble animals now
so nearly extinct. The buffalo has dis
appeared, but domestic cattle have tak
en their places, wild fowls throng the
many lakes, grouse are plentiful and
antelope are occasionally seen quietly
watching the train as it hurries on.
These are tragic grounds where the
Cree and the Blackfeet Indians fought
some of their bloodiest battles. The
universal testimony is that these two
discontented and rebellious tribes are
the remlnants of those whose wigwams
once stretched to the coast of Labra
dor. MEDICINE HAT.
Medicine Hat Is a railway divisional
point with round-house and repair
shops, and acquires additional Import
ance from being the center of and snip
ping point for large cattle and coal in
terests. The town has a population of
1,000 with several churches, a hopit
al and other public buildings. It is
located on the . broad and beautiful
South Saskatchewan river, which wo
cross on a steel bridge over a thousand
feet long and Is navigable for steam
" boats some distance above and eight
hundred miles below. On the bars of
this river gold Is found in paying quan
tities. It is also an important station
of the "mounted police," six-foot Brit
ish soldiers, straight as an arrow, w ho
wear tight fitting regulation panta
loons and policemen's white hats, with
huge hat bands "and chokers. Large
beds of lignite, also coal and Iron mine,
are abundant in this neighborhood.
At Dunmore, a station nine miles be
yond, a branch of the Canadian Pacific
railroad, leads to extensive collieries at
Lethbridge, 110 miles southward
near the border, where are Important
bituminous coal deposits owned by the
Canadian Pacific railway which has ex
pended over a million dollars In their
development. Lethbrldge Is a town of
2,500 population. Connection with the
United States Is made by the Oreat
Falls and Montana railway at Leth
brldge. Here Is the "Blood" Indian
reservation and near Macleod, only a
few mile distant, la the "Pelgan" re,
rvatlon, both under the aurvellUnce
of these . preservers of the peace, the
At Dunmore are extensive yards for
the shipment of cattle, many of which
are driven here from Montana. In fact,
this town U supported by trade with
cattle ranches and farming supplies.
A Canadian experimental farm is lo
cated here, where not only capital crops
are raised, but also valuable horses and
cattje are bred. Near the town is a
mounted police station and not far
away is a Cree Indian village.
We are now crossing the high broken
country known here as the Coteau. and
to the right, far away southward, are
the Cypress Hills, which rise gradually
to the altitude of 3.800 feet, and which
are covered with fine timber.
It is difficult to conceive of a better
stock country. The grasses are pecu
liarly adapted to fattening both horses
and cattle; the valleys and groves give
ample shelter, and the numerous
streams (lowing out of these Cypress
Hills yield an excellent water supply
at all seasons.
THE SPORTSMAN'S PARADISE.
As we proceed, the railway passes
through several experimental farms
one at Forrest, one at Klncorth, another
at Maple Creek. We also have Crane
Lake, Hull Lake, and also Goose Lake,
besides Swift Current, all within a hun
dred miles. Of these I will speak later.
We are now entering a very paradise
for sportsmen. The lakes become more
frequent. Some are fresh water and
others alkaline. The latter have no out
let, and are dark red in color, resembl
ing beds of foliage. Some have white
centers and edces dark red. They are
found mainly on rolling land. Water
fowl sometimes blacken the surface of
these lakes and ponds; long white lines
of pelican disport themselves along
the shores; wild geese, cranes, ducks,
of a dozen varieties, snipe, plover and
curlew, all common throughout the
prairies, are found her In myriads.
Prairie chickens are abundant on the
high ground and antelope are common
on the hills. Porcupines and jack rab
bits are also In abundance. Along the
creeks are fine meadow lands and nu
merous mowing and reaping machines
were In use as we passed by.
Maple Creek Is the shipping point
for the extensive . horse and cattle
ranges in the Cypress Hills, and an
other agency for these Blackfeet In
dians. Here Is another post of "Mount
ed Police," or red coats, looking after
the large encampment of Crow and
Blackfeet Indians nearby. These tribes
are represented on the station plat
form by braves of high and low de
gree, squaws and papooses the squaws
In crouched positions or eagerly sell
ing polished buffalo horns or ox horns,
pipes and trinkets, for tobacco and sil
ver. They are a picturesque looking
lot, but dirty withal. They have no
conscience as to the genuiness of the
buffalo horn which they offer for sale.
Any polished ox-horn will do well
enough for the. tourist trade. They
appear shy and will hide their heads
from amateur photographers until paid
to pose, which they will do for a "half
On leaving the station we get a sight
of their encampment a mile or so away.
Here are tall, conical "tepees" of well
smoked clothe and skins; Indians In
blankets of brilliant colors, hundreds
of ponies feeding in the rich grasses;
surrounded by a line of graceful trees,
beautiful, because of their rarity, all
making, with the dark Cypress Hills
rising in the distance, a picture most
novel and striking.
Swift Current is located on a swift
flowing stream and is another railway
divisional point. Here Is the principal
sheep farm of the Canadian Agricul
tural company where thousands of
sheep are feeding on the "bunch grass,"
like pebbles on the seashore, and guard
ed by mounted shepherds and dogs. The
company's buildings are commodious
and are all painted red. A large crop
of wool Is shipped from here to Europe
Here is a large creamery devoted
exclusively to making cheese. Cana
dians believe they beat the world on
cheese, which claim was duly estab
lished at the World's fair at Chicago
In the 2,200 pound cheese, which every
one gazed upon with astonishment.
The Canadian government has erected
here a meteorological observing sta
tion. LARGE SCALE FARMING.
At Rush Lake, in a twenty miles
further run, is another of the com
pany's farms. I should mention that
these ten farms aggregate 105,000 acres.
Eight wo pass on the train, which
makes stops sufficient to observe them.
Each comnrises nn nrpn nf mnnn ,.,..
and It is the policy to have 4,000 acres
uuuci luiuvuiion ai eacn point.
Rush Lake is a large body of fresh
water, and a favorite resort for water
fowls, where myriads of swan, geese,
ducks and pelicans congregate. With
in fifteen miles, near Morse Station,
Is a salt lake, where antelopes are
found, also coyotes and prairies dogs.
Soon we enter the basin of the "Old
Wives" lakes. pYtpnstva imriiA ,.,

shores glisten like frosted silver In the,

than 150 miles, but tho Boll Is excel

here are marked In nil directions by
old buffalo trails and scarred and pit
ted by their "wallows," while bones
of the vanquished can be seen Jlled
up at the different stations awaiting
shipment. A buffalo Is a rare sight
now, and he must be looked for further
north, where he is known as the "wood
Hour after hour we roll along with
little change In the aspect of the coun
try. It is virtually treeless for 200
miles and this with the short buffalo
grass, gives the landscape a desolate,
barren look, though it Is far from bar
ren; still, "It has no feature but Im
mensity and no character save lone
liness." QUEER NOMENCLATURE.
Reaching Moose Jaw we find an
other railway divisional point at an
altitude of 1,725 feet, and a population
of 1,000. Moose Jaw "what's In a
name?" This name is -an abridgement
of the Indian name of this place, which
when translated, is "The-creek-where-the-whlte-man-mended-the-cart-wlth
. Lovers of the
beautiful In aboriginal names may rea
son out that the place was named
Moose Jaw on account of a mighty bat
tle where In the hands of a brave a
moose jaw had done as effective work
as an instrument of destruction as
Sampson did with the Jaw bone of an
ass. Fine specimens of this great Cree
nation, painted and blanketed, are seen
hanging about this and other stations.
They are not found In as great num
bers as we expected, though their res
ervations are near at hand. We saw
fewer in this country than we found
on the line of the Northern Pacific in
Montana, although the two tribes,
Crees and Blackfeet, number several
thousands each, and are said to out
number any two tribes in the United
Eight miles eastward from Moose
Jaw Is Pasqua Junction, where a
branch line extends southward to the
international boundary where connec
tion Is made with the Boo Line, through
North Dakota and Minnesota, to St.
Paul and the western and middle states.
At Pasqua we parted with some of
our distinguished company: Receiver
Payne and Judge Jenkins and families
of the North Pacific railway; President
C. -J. Ives and family, of B. C. R. &
N. Ry.i Dr. J. F. Forse and family, of
St. Paul and Minneapolis, also home
ward bound from Alaska, also Vice
President W. Q. Purdy, of C. R. I. &
Pac. Ry., and his party, their pri
vate cars having heretofore been at
tached to our train; also Vice Presi
dent Stevenson and family, who were
enjoying the courtesy of President Van
Home, of the Canadian Pacific Rail
way, In hi luxurious private car.
Resuming our Journey on the main
line, a thlrty-three-mlle run through a
broken' prairie country bring u to
Reglna, the capita.! of the Northwest
territories, embracing the four prov
inces of Asslnibola, Alberta, Saskatch
ewan and Athabaska. Here the legis
lative assembly of these territories
holds its sessions, and here Is the resi
dence of the lieutenant-governor, and
the capitol buildings. The town seems
set down on an apparently boundless
plain and has yet a rather straggling
frontier look. It Is a busy place, an
important center of trade and "one of
the cities of the future." It is the dis
tribution point for the country far north
and south. A branch of the Canadian
Pacific railway extends 247 miles north
ward to Prince Albert, the most north
ern town in the Province of Saskatche
wan. Reglna Is the headquarters of the
"Northwest Mounted Police," consist
ing of one thousand men and fifty offi
cers under the command of Colonel
Herchmer, commissioner of N. W. W.
M. P. The barracks, officers' quarters,
offices, storehouse, and Imposing drill
hall, taken together, make a handsome
village. The headquarters of the police
are located alongside the Canadian Pa
cific railway track, about three mllea
from Reglna. The barracks, from the
point of accommodation, could not be
surpassed. Forty or fifty wooden build
ings at short distances apart extend
over a grass-covered square. Artistlo
effect has not been overlooked for
native maple and flower gardens greet
the eye at every turn. On tho south
side of the square fronts the prison
where Louis Rlel spent his Inst days.
At the rear of this building still stands
the scaffold from which the half-breed
leader was swung Into eternity. The
Commissioner (Colonel Herchmer) di
rects the movements of his force from
Reglna. He is a thorough officer, hav
ing served with distinction In the Brit
ish army. In a new country like this,
the necessity of ruling with a firm hand
AN INTERESTING STUDf.
Every traveler should stop over a day
and visit the barracks. The colonel
courteously shows all interested visitors
through thern. The men's quarters are
comfortably fitted up. Here are can
teen and recreation rooms, where bil
liards and other games may be Indulged
in. Nearby is the riding school and
gymnasium, a building nearly as large
as the Montreal drill shed or like Mad
ison Square Garden, N. Y. The officers'
quarters are equal to any in the regular
United States or Imperial service. Here
Inspector Starnes and Assistant Scarth
dispense gracious hospitality to all
worthy visitors. Moments of recrea
tion here are few.
The colonel takes pardonable pride In
his method of dealing with the tramp
nuisance. It is said that tramps in the
Dominion freese In winter and In sum
mer, emigrate to America. Orders have
been Issued to every divisional com
mander to arrest all suspicious charac
ters who refuse to work, and If they
cannot give a satisfactory account of
themselves they are tried for vagran
cy and sent down to hard labor.
Among the social characters around
the post Is Jack Henderson, the execu
tioner of the force. He Is old In the
service and a typical frontiersman, who
proposes to die In the harness, and oc
casionally goes on missions to remote
posts. Owing to the extreme length of
this letter I must defer a description of
the "Mounted Police" and their rela
tions with the Indians and the Indian
problem until next week.
