credible. Then it was a hardship, now

and there were few accommodations
of any kind. A transport now has ac
commodations as good as a first-class
hotel, with baths. washrooms, fine
sleeping quarters and there are even
sanitary drinking fountains instead of
cups. The rooms are lighted with
electricity, cooled by electric fans.
there Is cold storage, fresh fruit, fresh
meat, and fresh vegetables and ex
perts along to prepare them in the
best possible manner.
It is an assured fact that there will
be a large crowd at the dock to see
the Sherman leave for Honolulu this
morning. Several hundred are expected
to come from Vancouver.' The Twenty

but her numbers are depleted as so
