OmWA.July m—Sir Wilfred
Laurier announced thin afternoon the policy (if the government for the construction of the
national trans-continental railway,
ThcGrand Trunk-road willex-
tendfrom Moncton tothe Pacific
ocean, and will be MOO mlleK
long. From Moncton to Winnipeg tlie distance is estimated at
1,800 miles, and from Winnipeg
to Fort Kinipson on the Pacific
oceAn 1,500 miles.
The cost of the construction
and equipment is estimated at
about $1(JO,000,(X)0. The eastern
section, from Moncton to Winnipeg, will be built by the government and leased to the Grand
Trunk Pacific for a poriod of 50
year*. For the first seven years
the company gets a lease free of
rent,' but will have to meet operating expenses. During the
next three years the company
will require to give the government the net earnings, but if
tlieSe should not equal three per
cei$ upon the cost of the section
the deficit is to be added to
capital account, For the next
fivrty years the Grand Trunk
Pacific will have to pay three
per cent per,milium to the governnient upon the capital of
this section,, This portion of
the line will be built according
to specifications and standards
to, be approved by Grand Trunk
Pacific aiiff government engineers jointly. A commission to
be appointed by the governnient
will supervise the work.
From Winnipeg to the Pacific the road will be constructed
by the Grand Trunk Pacific
within seven years. The government will guarantee 75 per
cent of the cost of construction
to a maximum of $13,000 per
milo .on the prairie division between Winnipeg and Edmonton
and of $30,000 per mile for the
mountain division between Edmonton and the Pacific coast.
The principal and interest of
the bonds are to be guaranteed
for fifty years. On completion
of the prairie division the company will commence paying
interest on the guaranttee
bonds. In regard to the mountain division the company will
not be called on to pay anything for the first seven years,
but for the succeeding three
years it will have to pay net
receipts over working expenses
and any deficit will be added to
cost, while forthe remaining 40
years the company will pay
three per cent per annum. lietween  Winnipeg and the Pa
first mortgage on the line as
security for its guarantee, and
the Grand Trunk Kailway of
Canada will be called on to
guarantee the bonds issued by
the Grand Trunk Pacific for its
portion of the cost of that section. The Grand Trunk Pacific
agrees to place rolling stock to
the value of $20,000,000 on tlie
whole line, one quarter of which,
or $5,000,000, is I'or use on the
section between Moncton and
Winnipeg. The government
will hold a lean as special security for the operation of this
particular section by the company. The governnient takes a
mortgage on the rolling stock
in use, lest the company, having built the paying portioi i of
the ronte between Winnipeg
and the coast, should endeavor
to throw the Moncton and Winnipeg section, with an uncertain
future, upon the hands of the
government before the fifty-
year lease expires.
The Grand Trunk Pacific will
have running powers over the
Intercolonial railway, and the
Intercolonial, and all other railways in Canada, will have running privileges over the section
of the Grand Trunk Pacific between Moncton and Winnipeg,
subject tothe rights and obligations of the lessees and the payment of proper compensation.
The railway commission which
is now being created by parliament will control freight rates.
The government will have the
right to appoint a director on
the lioard of the Grand Trunk
Pacific. Unrouted export trade
is to be carried in winter to its
destination at the Halifax or
St. John, through Canadian
ports, at rates no higher than
would be charged if it were
sent by Portland. The capital
of the Griind Trunk Pucilic is
not to exceed $15,000,000. The
rolling stock and equipment of
the whole line are to be purchased in Canada. The government
is to give the company free of
cost lands as may be required
for riglit of way. The conipnny
shall build the section through
the Rocky mountains to the
Pacific coast concurrently with
the prairie section between
Winnipeg and Edmonton. It
must deposit within sixty days
$5,000,000 in cash or securities us
a guarantee for the fulfillment
of its covenants under the contracts. This money will bo
released at tho final stage of
construction between Winnipeg
and the Pacific.
We are Slaughtering
Prices
some  of  the prairie  ranchers
who have sold out their holdings
beyond the Rockies are investing their money in new homes
in   the Okanagan   and Fraser
Valley districts, where the climate is more equable than in
the very hot summer and very
cold winter climes farther east.
The   once   familiar   prairie
schooner has made a i-oappoar-
Jince at Enderby, Salmon Arm,
Vernon and other favored regions in this delightful country.
The newest Americans to come
here have taken up land near
Midway, iu the Boundary country ns  it  is sometimes called.
Four families have just arrived
from Idaho with their cattle,
farm implements.-ind household
effects,   They make an addition
toCaimda's population of twelve
persons.    Mr. T. (jlillios heads
the party.     He   was born in
Nova  Scotia but when he removed   to  the   United   Slates
several years ago he became   a
naturalized American,   lie settled in the Kootenai Valley, Idaho, where his family grew up.
When the rush to Alberta started some time buck he thought
of returning   to   Canada   and
came over to spy out the country.   He returned home via thisr
province  and    decided     that
Hritish Columbia was the land
for him.   He was particularly-
struck with the district of Sidley. near Midway and acquired
320 acres of land at prices running from $1.00 to $2.50 per acre.
When he got back to Idaho his
account of the district so fired
three heads  of other families
that when ho made his move
thisway they came too, undeach
will take up 320 acres. • While
Mr.   Gillies  has   been bock in
Idaho   making  final   arrangements his new. farm has been
working itself for  him.   There
is already a fine crop of oats
and hay nearly ready for harvesting and he will   be able to
get a good price for the feed in
the mining country.
As showing the value of farming land in the valleys in the
mining country it may be stated
that last year Henry Thompson took up a farm hi the Similkameen. He paid $5,000 for it.
The next yoar begot three crops
of hay and oats from which ho
realized $1,000.— Vancouver

After August 14th no applications will be received. On
August 31st the several courts
of revision will be held to finally
settle aud determine the list.
Even so gruesome a subject as tombstone advertising may have its humorous features. A magazine
advertisement of the Monumental Bronze Co, declares that
"White bronzo has been adopted for monuments by thousands
of delighted customers in all
parts of the country." They
might have added; "Wo have
not heard a word of complaint
from a single place whero they
have been used."
The condition of the Consolidated Lake Superior Conipany.
the name of the group of
Clergue industries at Sault Ste.
Marie, Ontario, and also in
Michigan, is becoming precarious enough to cause anxiety.
It is given out that unless stockholders meet the call for more
funds a reoganization and the
possibility, of a receivership
seems certain. The plan proposed is to create $15,000,000 in
30-year 4 per cent, bonds, $12,
500,000 of which are to be offered to the stockholders at $fi00
on the $1,000. Each holder of
80 shares of stock is to be given
the privilege of subscribing to
one $1,000 bond, $600. Large
subscriptions are to be made on
thc same ratio. Tho balance of
the $15,000,000 bond issue is to
remain in the treasury, for
future use.
tliat Mr. Blair resented the
amendments as suggested. It
is true they were not according
to the provisions of tlie bill as
introduced, but from the time
of its first introduction until
the last clause was passed he always held out that his policy
was to accept any and all
amendments that would tend
to the more satisfactory work'
ing of its provisions. It probably irritates tho opposition to
find that members on the gov
ornment side had the interests
of their constituents sufficiently
at heart to cause them to raise
their voices in the House on behalf of those constituents, even
although they had not the authorization of the government
or of the Minister of Railways
ii) doing so. The very opposition papers which condemned
Liberal members for efficiently
upholding the views and cause
of their constituents in the
Mouse are the same which a
few weeks ago objected to the
same Liberal members because
of their subservancy to party
and consequent disregard of
principle. Truly the way of a
member of parliament is hard.
If he upholds the interests of
his constituents ho is disloyal
to the government, aud if he
upholds the government he is
disloyal to his constituents. A
clear case of the impossibility of
pleasing those who don't want
to be pleased.
At a meeting of the Dominion election  committee   held
at   Ottawa  last   Thursday, it
was decided  to  recommend to
the house a law providing  for
compulsory voting at elections.
The   bill provides    that   any
qualified elector  who  fails  to
vote will  be deprived  of  the
right  to  do so at  the    next
general election.    Such an act,
if it becomes law, will  work a
hardship on a lot of faint hearted,  cowardly  government officials,  who through   fear' of
losing   their    positions,   keep
away from the polling places on
election day.   However such an
act-will probably  have the effect of   making  mon out  of
these inlividufils,  w.io  at the
present tinio are not entitled to
that name,     Tlie   man    who
conns out boldly and votes the
way he vv t its to. regardless of
the p.isit.i'in lie holds, is admired
liy all, while the man, wlio goes
sneaking  aiviuutl   on   elbutioii
day to avoid voting is considered a coward.
It is accepted as a universal
truth that itis impossible even
for members of padiament to
please everybody ; and it. is just
as true that it is impossible to
please anybody wbo does not
want to bc pleased. Amongst
thc many reasons that have been
given for the resignation from
the cabinet of the ITon.Mr.Blair,
ono tha seems tobe a prime
favorite, especially amongst opposition newspapers, is/ the
amendments secured to the
Railway Commission Bill on
motion of Liberal members.
That there wore a number of
important amendments made is
admitted and that the amendments were in the public interest, but at the same time it is
alleged that inasmuch as these
were changes from the bill as
introduced by Mr. Blair, they
were,an adverse criticism upon
him whicli he was fully justified
ib  resenting,  especially when! in its
THE LIBERAL PLATFORM.
The liberal platform, as
adopted at the provincial
liberal convention held at Vancouver on February 7th, 1902, is
as follows:
1. The immediate redistri
bution of the constituencies of
the province on the basis of
population but allowing a
smaller unit of population per
seat forthe outlying districts,
2. Governnient    ownership,
Doniinion, provincial and inun
icipal,   of public  services    of
utilities is sound and should be
carried out in British Columbia.
ii. Should it be advisable at
any time to grant aid to a railway conipany such shall be in
cash and not in land and no
bonus of any kind shall be given
without definite and effective
means being taken to safeguard
the interests of the province in
the management of the road,
control of the freight and passenger rates, and provision made
against, such railway having
any liability against it except
for actual cost.
4. • Immediate construction
of the Coast-Kootenay railway;
the Cariboo railway; a railway
from Alburni to a point on the
east cottsjt of the island; a road
in the northern part of the
province from the coast to the
eastern boundary with an extension to the northern boundary; the railway from Vernon
to Midway by north fork of
Kettle river; with necessary
brancli lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the
act now in force compelling the
scaling of logs by government
seniors.
6. That such legislation
should bo enacted' As will result
in making the lands included in
the various dyking areas avarf
able for cultivation as quickly
as possible ai>d securv prompt
payments of 'assessments viHei_
due.
7. That the government
should keep in touch w»th conditions in contiection'Avith mining, protecting said industry
against combines and trusts
and if necessary for the purpose
build aud operate smelters
and refineries. No reasonable
change should be made in the
mining laws without full notice
to all parties interested, giving
full opportunity for discussion
and criticism.
8. As the province can pnly
advance hy the settlement with
borders of thrifty and
we declare it tp he the duty'.of
the government to discourage
Oriental immigration and ' employment by every means with
in its power, and wo appeal to
our fellow liberals throughout
tlie Dominion to aid us in our
efforts to protect ourselves
against the ruinous competition
of men having a standard of
decency and comforti nimsensely
below that of civilized peoples,
and who shirk every duty and
obligation of citzenship whicli
the law will allow them to
escape,
9. The government ought to
prevent the waste and suffering
caused by strikes and lock-outs,
and an earnest effort ought to
be made to provide some moans
of preventing such strikes and
lock-outs, and we approve the
adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the
province stands in need of revision. Taxation should bear upon
privilege rather than upon
industry, and no addition should
be made to the debt of the
province except for public works
properly chargeable to capital.
11. The retaining Of the
resources of the province as an
asset for the benefit of the
people and taking effective
measures to prevent the alienation of tho publicdomain except
for actual bona fide business or
industrial purposes, putting au
end to the practice of speculating in connection with the
same.
12 The construction and
maintenance of roads throughout the province to aid in the
development of the mining and
agricultural districts.
