When the House Re-Opens the Opinions of the People Will be
Brought so Forcibly Before the Government That lt Can

To-morrow morning tin* Provincial
Legislature  will again  inert, mul thn
most Important question   tlmt. will

lim session will lm ilml, nf I lie Oust
Kootenay ntllwiiy, Imt Important as It
is there hIihuIiI he nn time spent liy the
government in deciding upon whnt
action slinulil he taken In the matter.
The House .-iiljoiirtieil for tlie purpose
f allowing the members to consult
their constituents mid obtain an ex
pie-sinii of their opinion regarding the
building nf ihis line of railway, The
government left il with lhe people to
decide whether it slinulil support, the
0. P. 11. or favor a competing line of
railway, The people have deeiiled
that nothing tmt tlte latter will satisfy
Iheir wisln-s, so ihere is nn alternative
fm the government when the question
Comes before lhe House hut. to give its
Support to a competing line.
Midway is unanimous in favor of
any line nther I hull lhe 0. P, R, huilding frnui here to the coast. We already have the I). P. It. running into
beie and onr experience witb ii is such
that we would rather see any other
company, no mai ter who is nt the
Hack uf it, Imilil tlie line to the const,
than to he at the mercy nf lhe 0, P. II.
.Miilway. like all lhe r si of lhe towns
ami cities in the province interested In
the budding nf this load, luis passed
strong resolutions in favor of the
Const Kootenay railway being built by
a compi-titlve line, .ind these i-esulu
tiiins witl lie forwarded to both the
I roviiieial uinl Dominion government*.
Greenwood has taken a strong stand
in favor of the V. V. _ K. At a meet
iug uf the (ii-eeiiwooil Board of Trade
held a short lime ago all ibeiiiipni'latil
husiness un li nf Lbe lown were present
and I here wus nol a dis-ciiting voice
when resolutions weie passed in favor
ul lhe V. \._ K. building the Const-
Kootenay railway. In a reporl of ibe
uieeting referred lo the On enwood
Times ton tains the following :
0. M. t rouse, I'dilnrof the Midway
Advanck, addressed the board in
reference tn the V.,V. k li. railway,
He pointed out that public opinion had
i ecu so forcibly expressed elsewhere in
reference lo the necessity for compel
Galliher, M. P., to the minister of railways, and In the press.
Rossland, the most important town
iu the interior, held a meeting lasl.
Thursday evening and passed the following resolution.
Resolved, That it being assumed
the provincial government will nut
huild the direct Coast-Knot en ivy railway ns a public work, but intends ns
declared iti the speech fiom the thione,
to subsidize a coinpaiiy lo build it,
then it is the emphatic opinion bf this
meeting that such suhsidy should gu
only to a competitive line entirely independent of the C. P. R., with pro-
visions absolutely preventing any
amalgamation with or control by the
0, P. It.; also that such railway should
lie extended at leant as far as Ihe
Boundary at Cascade, and Ibat it is
the imperative duty of the government in the interest of the country to
have such railway begun this spring,
mid pushed to completion at. the carli
est |sissihled'ite, and that copies of
this resolution be forwarded to the
members of the provincial government,
at Victoria forthwith.
The Rossland Minor in speaking of
the meeting says : With no uncertain
sound Rossland declared last evening
for railway competition lietween the
coast and Ihe Kootenays, free froni
any entangling connection or alliance
with the Canadian Pacitic railroad. A
large and enthusiactlciiudlenceattended lhe puhlic meeting in Ihe Miners'
Union hall and Ihe sentiments of tbe
speakers were warmly applauded
Mr. Smith Curtis addressed the
meeting. Mr. Cm lis stated that the
feeling in Victoria nnw was that the
representative* should resign if they
failed to support, a competitive line.
He expressed the belief that, there was
mi doiiht ahoul the unanimity of sen
t intent on this question prevailing
throughout the iuteiior. Tu various
deputations the premier in replyingto
tbem snid that he proposed to make
ibe liest bin gain in the interests of the
country. He practically said thai he
was not out for competition, being
merely content to obtain what he considered ibe  best  terms.   Mr.  Curtis
live railways thai lhe government bad argued that the C. P. II. had alieady
letreated from iheir posilion of favor- j obtained all that they were clearly en*
ingtheO.P.R. and were   willing to j' ttled to from tha people.   The various
leave the matter to their supporters.
For this reason lbe house bad been
ndjourniied for two weeks in order
that tbe memla-rs might get all ex
pression of opinion fnun iheir constituent*. Ml. Orotise believed lhat
this district should lake furlher action
and suggested that if (ireenwood
would appoint delegates Midwuy
would do the same. After some dismission in favor of the scheme, Duncan
Mcintosh and C. Scott Galloway, wer
bonuses antl subsidies already paid to
them exceeded #130,000,000. It should
lie borne in mind that while Mr. Diiiib-
miiir agreed tn use his best judgment
he bad mure or lets business ndations
with the 0. P. H. Mr. Curtis consider*
ed this n very arbitrary method of
disposing of so momentous a question.
The people, after all, had to pay the
subsidies and their wishes and representations should be listened to. Il
was his belief that Dunsmuir would
appointed and tile cuiincil weie iu | have tn give way, or else retire from
81 Minted to prepare a petition in favor office, This was not a party question
of the V., V. k K   III lie signed by the j and it gratified him to find out ihal
residents of the districl, also the
secretary was Instructed to write
Phoenix and Grand Polks Boards of
Trade asking for Iheir cu-oneratlon,
Phoenix is very pronounced in ita
views regarding this matter and is
strongly opposed to lbe ('. P. H. building the line. Grand Korks favors a
competing line, while lbe following
despaleh from ('iisiiule giws thai
town's views of the matter :
Cascade, B. C, April 10.- At the
regulai monthly meeilng uf the Cas-
cade Hoard of Trade, held oil Monday,
April Ist. them was a large attendance,
and the append'd resolution was
passed :

Whereas, The people of this district

Resolved, Hint the Cascade Board
i of Trade presses upon ibe government
the urgent necessity of prompt ael ion,
and that charters lm granted m any
railways which will cniup'te wiih the

Resolved, Thai copies of this reso
lotion he sent in Mi. Smith Cm tis, M.
P.P., tn ihe provincial pri'inbr, to Mr.
some of his Conservative opponents
weie tbe siuidiest rhampinns nf railway    e pet ition.     If   Ihe    present
governiuenl failed lo do its duty
these people he had referred to could
consistently work for tbe establishment of a new government which
would grant the relief sought for.
The Vancouver World, iu speaking
of the meeting held in that city recent
Iy for the purpose of discussing ihis
iiiipoilant question, snys :
Vancouver has joined hands with
ihe Kootenays, Similkauieeii, Victoiia
and other parts of lhe Province In protesting against Ihe ronsiruction of the
Const Kontenny line by any other than
a direct competitor of the C. P. R.
Thin**ilay night's mass meeting wns
called and presided over by the Mayor,
iu response to the public sentiment of
the city. The meeting wis free and
open lo all who cared lo speak on the
railway question. But not a single
advocate appeared on behalf oft he C.
P, It—at least not openly. There was
a shrewd suspicion that, some of those
whu spoke iu favor of government rati-
ways—who said il would he better lo
bave no railway at all if the govern
ment itself wnuld nol hn the builder-
were in reality appearing in the interests iff the C. P. R. Some of these
men appeared openly agninst the ad-
voeati's iif government railways last
.Tunc, when Die question was put In
the people for a decision. In the pres
ent contest for a line to the Kootenay
it is not  remarkable that  one side
Steady progress continues to be tha
oilier of the day lu lhe Boundary district, says the B. C, Mining Record.
The three chief ore innducers, viz., the
Old'Ironsides and Knob Hill group,
the Mother Lode and the B.C. are
nnw, together, turning nut about,
1,100 tons of on-daily. Of this quantity,
nearly (I'll) tuns comes from the oid
Ironsides and Knob Hill group ; about
380 Ions from I lie Mother Lode nnd
rather better than 100 tons from the B.
C, At present no oilier properly in
the dislrict is maintaining a regular
OlltpUt, although several other claims
sre approaching the stage of regular
production. As, however, the tolal
dally treatment capacity uf the local
smelters at work averages rather less
than 1,1*10 tons, as yet hothlng is Inst
by the output being restricted to the
quantity mentioned. Of course, mure
mines could do as the B.C. is lining,
and send Iheir ure to Trail, but Ihe
general disposition appears lo he to
hnve il treated by one or oilier ot the
local smelter*,
There is really litlle that is new to
chronicle in connection with the Old
Ironsides and Knob Hill gt p, tin-
several mines of which aie hy far in
lead ns regards nut pui. ami am ii..,;.
to continue a long way abend in ilos
respect of all others in thu Boundary
country. Official announcement has
lieen made thnt this group will, hefore
the close of next summer, be required
tu maintain a dnilv oul pill of about
1,200 Ions, in order to supply the
Otanby smelter, wbich, by that time,
will have facilities for treating that
quantity dail;. The reported olfer of
■815,1100,1100 for the Minei-tiiaves properties, which include the Granny
smelter, Ihe Old Ironsides, Knob Hill,
Victoria nnd Grey Kitgle mines, and
other interests, has emphasized the
importance of these properties, and
attracted fresh atteution to them.
The enormous quantity of ure shindy
opened up iu the mine*, Its siticiil.nl)
suitable tint ure for economical smelting, and the murked success ihal has
al tended nnd is still nl tending the
operation uf the Grnuby smelter, combine to greatly impress capitalists
wilh the big possibilities of this industry. It appears, though, that its
present owners fully appreciate ils
great promise, and aie taking advantage of the opportunities|it ntfoids
tbem for building up cupper mining
and smelling business uf large proportions,
Some particulars of progress on the
Snnwsluie group, situate in the vicinity
of Did Ironside* and Knoh Hill, were
given last month, There is nothing
fresh to add just now, the work on this
property continuing nn ■similar lines of
development to those followed forthe
greater part of Ibe past yenr. Mr.
Anthony J. McMillan, managing director of the British Columbia (Rossland
and Slocan) Syndicate, which owns this
group, will probably return shortly
from Kngland, and it isexpetled that,
as a result of his conference with his
co director* In London, development
operations will he enlarged.
The Brooklyn and Sietnwinder group
is another neighbor of tbe Old Ironsides and Knob Hill thiit is not likely
to sutler from either lack nf capital nr

This group, which is owned hy the
Dominion Copper coinpaiiy, Lid., uf

The Vernon News speaks very highly
*lf   "rice   Ellison,  M.   P.   P.  for  Kast
Yule, for the able manner iu which  lie
has looked after the interests of the
people of Vernon and vicinity in connection wilh the building of lhc Midway nnd Vernon Railway in having
clauses insetted tu the clfcci that work

und also making provision fnr the cuu
ai ruction of a  line  twenty   miles  np

Mr, Ellison, in sn   efficiently looking
after Ihe   interests  of  the   people  of
Vernon, will  not overlook the fact
tbat there are a large number of  his
cniistlttients Interested in the building
of the Coast-Kootenay railway nnd
who want that line built hy snine company independent of the C, P. II.    If
Mr. Ellison displays tbe same zeal in
supporting  the  V.  V. k li. Railway,
thereby looking after Ihe interests of
the greater humher of his constituents,
that be bus in moving amendments to
the Midway and Vernon Railway and
looking after    the    interests of the
residents of Vernon, his efforts will
lie gieally appiecialed.
The Greenwood Board of Trade is
deserving of great credit for I he able
assistance ihey are lending in support
of the V. V.&K. railway.   At  tbeir
annual meeting, held on the 1th inst.,
this subject came up tor discussion,
There wns a large at tendance, representative uf all the leading business
nien of thc city, und all favored  the
Coast Kontenny railway being built by
tbe V. V.&E. Railway company.   C,
Sunt   Galloway ably addressed  lhe
meeting.   lie favored the idea of llm
Board of Trade sending delegates to
the reopening of the House, nnd also
Ihnt th* Board of Trade prrpire a petition in favor of the V. V. k E., to be
presented to the government. Duncan
Mcintosh next nddres«ed lbe meeting.
He said that nil hough he was nut a
member of 'be Boaul of Trade, he was
a mem her of"n conipany lhat wns a
member and therefore he believed be
bail   . right to talk.   (Mr.  Mcintosh

In   delegates should be armed with a
petition   'i favoi  of the V. V. k K,
signed   ii  nil the resident* of the district.    >lt  Mcintosh's speech through*
olll  showed plainly ibat the V. V. &
K. has no stronger supporter and that
tlie 0. P. R. has no greater antagonist
in the entire province than himself,
and      ere will he no mistaking the
view     f the people of Greenwood on
this mailer when Mr. Mcintosh buttonhole*   the  members at  Victoria.
Mr.   Mcintosh   regretted very  much
that he could not vote on tin   resolutions thai acre brought up, lull as one
member of hisfhni voted ii prevented
him giving vent  to  his  enthusiasm.
Messrs. C. Scott Galloway and Duncan
Mcln  ish were appointed delegates to
gut   .lictoria.   When  Mr. Well It
was proposed he jokingly replied that j
i1 wns Impossible fur him logo, ns the
iv liking was had : this iciiwrk caused
ui'icli la ighter, coming as it d I from
n   man  of  Mr.   Mcintosh's   wealth
However. Mr. Mcintosh agreed to go
to Victoria nnd do all that he could in
favor of ihe V. V. k E, building the
Const-Koolenay railway.   Every resolution that came before  the  Board,
favoring Ihe V. V. A E„ passed without n dissenting voice, showing that
the business men nf Greenwood have
nil united in an effort to impress upon
the government that that city favors
'he   Coast-Kootenay   railway   being
iniilt by the V. V. & K.
'       P    It,      li.'sllj'
xx ith ii al cumpai
('i.u   opposed   Hi
and this fact-will he brought so forcibly before (he government when tbey
again meet that they dare tint do other
than   favor  a  competing  line.    The
people bave grown tired of humbly
pel it inning an Inattentive government,
Thc people are now demanding tbeir
rights, and with the cities of Victoria
nnd Vancouver, together with the entire Siniilkameen, Boundary and Koot-
enay countries in favor of a competing
line, the government will find that it
Ih up against, a strong combination.
I he people of this province hnve lunl
enough nf the C. P. R.   Their policy is
too well  known  to require being explained,    If a line from hete to the
const   were buill   by lhat company il
would  only  iocrense its  chances  to
cinch tbe people,   il would hu better
for the people of this district if the
Coast-Kootenay railway wero allowed
to drop tat Iter than have it built by
thnt company.   We want competition
aod must have it. The Rnssiand Miner
in referring to this matter says :
The absolute   unanimity of feeling
shown   by    the  public  meeting  Inst
night, which wns held to consider thu
railway quest inu, is another barrier to
the granting, by the government, of
llm bonus to the C. P. It. to build  the
Cniist-Knnteniiy line.   What the meeting demanded, and demanded with n"
uncertain Voice,whs that the government of the province should give every
encouragement  possible   to the construction Of a competitive line of ro d
from Dm cuasl through tbe Kootenay
country.   The utterances of the speakers which weie concurred in by theii
auditors, were to the effect that iindei
no circumstances should the government give lhe bonus lo IheC. P. R.
It was recognized by all present that
the construclinu of such a line,  under
C, P. R. control, would not  only   not
be in lhe interests of tbe country, lull
wnuld   be  diametrically     opposed  to
Ihem.   It. is understood by every citizen   of the Kootenay   country that
while railway facilities are wha1, are
icquired for the development of that
immense tract of mineral  territory, il
would he better to .allow it tu remain
in its present condition than have   it.
opened   up  under   the auspices of a
monopoly which would exact as tribute
nine tenths  of  its  production.   Thnl
the country is an immensely rich one
has been proved beyond the possibility
of refutation,    but   those    wbo   aie
chiefly  Interested   in   it,  and  in the
development of its properties, are unanimous ill saying that Ihey  woiid
rather bold on for a yenr or two in lhe
hope of ohtaining railway competition,
than see the C. P. R. x.. nstriict a bee
from which tbey hope for si much.  It
Is difficult In see how Ihi" government,
in view  of  the meetings which have
heen   held in Victoria and Vancoiive ,
and which are now being held through-
nut l ho whole Kootenay district, favor
able to the Construction of a competitive   road,  can   insist  nn giving Ihe
bonus to the O.P.R. Coinpaiiy.

All along the line of lho proposed road,

This waa decided at a meeting of the.
Miners' Dniun held last week. The
following taken from the Rossland
Miner sliowa the grievances uf the
"Ever since Lhe contract was signed
lasl year there have been gtievanc s
complained of by the members, nf the
union. Out. of the principal of these
bas been the violation of clause 15 uf
l he agreement, which reads ; 'That an
employe being a member of the union
shall bu no bar to his getting employ'
ment, nor shall Ihe mine owners place
any obstacle in the way nf nnn-uiii'iii
men joining the union.' This agree
ment has been violated by the refusal
of the mine managers to allow tin-
walking delegate, or the officers of the
union, to viait the mines and there
anlicil iimi union men to become iiiein
hers. To show you and the public
that union men arela-ingdisciitninated
against and that there is apparently
an ai tempt in destroy our organization
I need point In but one fact, ami that
is that,in the piu*t six months no less
than 437 union men have been dis
charged from lhe various mines in I hi*
camp fur one alleged reason or auotb
er. Does not this look like a very
large proportion if it were not ad
signed and was au accidental move
ment. The men who were diachaigeil
are as good a lot of hard rock miners
as could he toiind un this continent,
and we contend were not let out foi
any lack of competency. Most of th III
had established themselves in homes
here, had money in the banks, whi-h
they dtew mil when they lefi for 01 hi i
places. They were goial citizens, anil
ihe only crime they were guilty nf wa*
that Ihey with union men,and be laved,
in a fair day's wage for a fair day's
work, and every mother's son of them
could do a day's work, Ion, Ther-
was no time when ihere waa any gieal
increase or decrease in the force nf
miners employed, as the forces employed her.' remained about the same
numerically dui iug the past six month",
and so the wholesale dismissals are not
iccoiinlable lor on the hypothesis that
they were discharged at a time when
large reductions were being nude in
those employed in ihe several mines.
"Another grievance, which we de
idedly oljji'ci t". first, because it i-
oiiirary to lbe genius of the people nf
Canada, who recognize none lint the
regular officers of the law, und.M'coinl
ly, for the reason that wr believe il a
Mow at the liberties of the people, is
ihe employment of spies ; what I mean
is the system of espionage which i-
jirrieu on at the mines here hy the
leteetivesof an alien agency. We do
not want the curse nf Pinkertonism til
1st fastened onto this country, nnd tin
sooner it is stopped tbe betlei It wilt
lie fnr all concerned. These spies con
stantly dog the footsteps of the men
employed on every level in the piinci
pal mines and follow the officers uf ihe
union around as though Ihey Were a
lot of criminals. One of these detectives attempted lo induce one of the
ineinlieis of our union to lireak the
law, Imping in this way lo put the organization in a bad light hefore lhe
public. The attempt failed, because
ihe members of the union are law-
abiding citizens, and were mu tu lie
snared in Ibis way. This shows the
hararter uf llu- men who nre hired
from this alien detective agency by lhe
mine managers tn watch the miners of
theivimp. The Dominion and -M-nvii-
ial parliaments should take the opportunity, now Dial both bodies are in
session, to stamp out Piukertoiiisui in
Canada forever.
"We also most jrmphatically obje-t
to the importation of aliens to Ink" the
place of good Briiish subjects employ-
nl in lbe mines here. We think thai
we should be protected against tbis
sort of compelitiOD, and call on those
who have charge of enforcing the alien
labor laws to look carefully into this
"In conclusion, we believe thai itis
in the Interest of the country and tie
camp that the imn-keia be paid mure
than Ihey are al present. Lei snine nf
the mine owners iry lo support n fain
iiy iu Rnssiand on $'lfr) pec day and
you wnuld tlml tbat they  would  he
shouting as loudly a.s th en are fm
an Increase rn $'1 per day. All thai we
ask is living wage for our members
working underground at bard and
hazardous work. It is our intention
tn work In the liest interests nf the
camp, and we submit lhat lln- wages
paid to the muckers are nol fair wag. s.
"We are not discouraged In the least
by the vole cast loilay, and feel sui"
that In time right will prevail, and
tlmt we will get what we ask fill and
that the grievances complained uf uill
he remedied."
