Many people hiivit recently commented upnu the apparently unnecessary

up lllc Okanogan lake from Pcnticlon
in Vernon und points north, east und

at Okunugan landing, at -ivhleh poi nl

Mr. Hciii/.e ciinsiders thai the people
nf lhe Bouudury creek district, huve
exhlhited an "unreusnuuhle uuiuius"
against his railway scheme. This is ns
llie mat ter appears iu all prohahilitv
lo Ml. Ilt-in/.e. Tlle average, coiuuiiili
orgarden man in lllis seelion of the
country however, who has any interest
at stake, considers Ihal Mr. Ileinze has
had ii "very full' shake." Mr. Heinze
is hy no means lhe only railway iiiiiii
who wishes lo tup llle mineral wealth

own personal lieu,'III aim other philanthropic puipiHes. If he were, Ihen
lhe peuple nf Biiillldnry creek would

given a cash liiinus hy Ihe provincial
govci-iunenl. But he is not, and iu
time tn come, when l-ullivays hipping
Boundary creek uud Kellle river are
paying dividends and niukiug money
