The governiuenl hns at liu-l dtcided
nnt to totally fgnore pn'.lic* opinion
mid baa accordingly adjourned tht*
house for two weeks 1.0 allow tbe members ao opportunity i'f .niiiiilini,' their
constituents as to their wishes regard-
in'! ihe huilding of the (.'oasiKoot-
eiiny railway. With a unanimity of
sentiment in favor of lhe recognition
by th" government of the V., V. k K.
Railway, whicli haa heen shown by
delegations fnun Victoria, Vancouver
mul nearly every town in the interior
that would he effected hy the Imildlng
of ihi- road, the government should no
lunger plead ignorance ns to the views
of iln* people nml an adjournment for
ihe purpoau mentioned should not
have been deemed iiithss.ii'V. There
is no ilonlil its to the people's wishes
In the matter and if their wishes an
t- plied with there is no doubt hut
that I he Ooaat Kootenay Kailway will

Hiiitngly In favor of a competing line.
They recognise that a competing
line is necessary to the advancement
Of I hat city and Ihey nre mil. hack*
waul iu acquainting the government
with their views. Vancouvei' is also
strongly in favor of the V., V. & P„,
and tbeir memorial published else-
where in this issue should have much
weight wiih the government, for it
contains the opinions of some of the
hest husiness men in Vancouver, who
have given much thought to the. suh
jeel of how to extend the trade of thnl
eily and have come to the conclusion
tbat railway competition is the thing
most desiied. The people of the
Boundary, Kootenay and Siiuilka-
lueen I'linnlries have urged upon the
government Ibe importance of a competing line. Delegates have heen sent
from nearly every town in the interior
for the purpose of informing the
governiuenl as to the opinions of the
people ou this question, aud yet in
the face of nil this convincing evidence
that, il is the wish of lhe people that
the government should favor the
huilding of the V., V, it li. it feigns
ignorance in lbe matter and adjourns
the house to Hud out whal the people
want. Now that the government has
wisely decided to consult, the people
in the matter and wains Iheir views
the people shoulil put up such a strong
••■■*• in favor of the V.. \'.k 15. that
there will he no mistaking what, tlm
wishes of the people nre. Delegates
should lie sent fruu nil over the pro.
vince ami shnuld appear in a Imdy
when the hill conies hefore the house,
and hetter yet if the delegates he
armed with a petition signed by the
yoiers of ihe vai'iotta electoral dis-
triois Interested in the huilding of the

i lie a iii ■ ii n try tributary to
'•'• : i* will he canvassed for the purpose if oblaining signatures uf those
ii favoi of a competing line and we
believe there is not a person in the
entire district hut what will lend his
-name io assist in ohtaining the V., V.
k R. and if nil the olher places follow
the example of Midway in ohtaining
the signatures of the people to a
petition for ihis purpose and send
them t'lui'thi" with nne or more delegates to the re opening of Ihe house,
the government dare not do other
thnn favor a competing line of railway.
The following taken from the Rossland
Miner expresses the opinion of Hie
Kootenays on this matter :
If nny one thing more than another
was required to demonstrate Ihe weak*
ness and incompetency of the provincial government in dealing with the
important matters which they have
heen empowered hy the people to determine iii ilie heal interests of the
country, it ia furnished by iheir decision to adjourn the house for a fort
night io allow the Individual members
of the legislature lo consult their constituents on the railway question. If
there is no covert move in this action
of tho cabinet, no concealed Intention
of making a point against the V.,  V.
k li. V puny, tben it is a confession
on the part, of ihe premier and his colleagues thai tiny are lacking in the
ability to direct theaffahaof the piovince. What new light thev hope to
obtain hy sending the members to
their constituencies il is Impossible tu
Imagine, Already they have been
memorialized by the leading citizens of
Victoria and Vancouver, who urged in
the strongest way that Ihe charier
should he given to the V., V. k K,
Company, in order Ihnt the country
might have a line competing with the
V. P, R. | a deputation from tho Associated Hoards of Trade of .Southern
Hritish Columbia, the region which
the railway is chiefly intended to benefit, Interviewed tbetn and represented
the wishes of t he people here and the
heeds of the districl, and the general
voice of the residents of ihe Koolenays
has, wilh no uncertain sound, nol in
this instance nnly hut for years, pin-
claimed the necessity for competitive
lines of railway. What more does
Ihe government need, in the form of
popular expression, l.o guide it in legislating for the• benelit of Ihe country
and I he good of the people 'i Surely it
is nol inlenled to secure the views of
Uieiesiiluuis 111 the rural ami northern
nucr in regard to tbis charter are well
known to Ihe public. He wishes to
give it to the 0. P. H. and finds it
difficult lo squiii'" his puhlic duty with
wilh his private inclination. The
difficulty, however, is one which might
very quickly he overcome were not his
political future involved in the issue,
and he perceives that a too cavalier
regard of Ihe needs of the country is
certain to result in ousting him from
office. He therefore hesitates hetween
the fear of openly outraging popular
sentiment and the fear ot alienating
the support of the monopoly wilh he is
on such intimate relations. Delay,
which will give, him time lo rest his
overtaxed mind, and which may possibly offer a way out of the dilemma,
will no doubt he grateful to him ; al
ways, of course, granting that no "job"
is to he formulated during the recess
Since the government, however, has
decided, for whatever reason, to give
Uie members an opportunity of sounding their constituents, the last excuse
for granting the charter to the V. P.
R. should he removed hy the people of
the Kootenay. Memorials and resolutions should lie sent in from every
town and ciiy in the dislrict calling
loudly for a competitive line and a
general "open door" policy in respec'.
to railways iu this piovince.

i 'I iisider's Opinion.
Mi    i.i-ili-i. luu,  lbe celebrated I
English journalist nf (ai-diir, Wales,
arrived in Ihe city yesterday nn his return tn Ottawa from bis trip Ihrough
the west, says tbe  Winnipeg Free
Press,   When interviewed, Mr. Carr
expressed himself as being most favnr-
ahly impressed  with   tbe  Canadian
_H, ii lb west and Brill* h Colunihia.   The
mining resources of Briiish Columbia
Mr. Chit considers simply stupendous,
and sufficient to enrich a great province.   Tbe coal deposits at the Cmw's
Nest aie inexhaustible, and Ihe English newspaper man cannnt comprehend why lbe people Ihere oppose a
railway outlet for tbe products of (best*
coal mines.   He states that the coal
Ihere is heller lhan the average Mouth
Wales article, and makes thebest cuke
in lh» world ; it can be mined cheaply,
•nd Ihe area of roal districts extends
over hundreds of miles, so that there
need be no fear of it* lieing exhausted
for many yearn.
