S. C. Holuiaii in charge at the mine,
and operations have been continued

At ihe close of Inst winter the following power plant was delivered at

The ilrill at tlie 00-fniil level has

MONDAY. FEBRUARY 8. 1002.
The Ciinadiiin Pacific Railway is set
Ing a great, pace for its tiaiixonli-
mjntnlrivals.whoeveryfew weeks have
presented to litem a new illustration of
th** enterprise of the management of
our mil innal highway. A tritnsconti-
li en I ul flyer tn make the trip from
Montreal lo the coast, in three days,
Is the latest suggestion, and as a Seattle paper sorrowfully remarks ; "The
trains will make the run to Montreal
in ibe same tune lhat trains ordinarily
lake to reach St. Paul. The run from
Montreal to New York is made in
altont half a day, and a passenger enn
tlietefore he carried from Ihe PaclHc
coast to New York city in about a day
a'nd a half less lhan liy any nl her route.
Iii|!Kleiitally, considering the distance,
the*rate per hour made will necessarily he very fast. The distance fiom
Montreal to Vancouver is 2.000 miles,
and to make it iu seventy-two hours,
the average rate per hour will be
uIhiiiI. forty and one third miles." The
new train, we aie luld will handle no
local traffic and will he run three times
a week. "The equipment, now in
lourse of construct ion, will duplicate
that of the royal train that carried the
Duke aod Duchess of Yoik across tbe
colli incut.
The prospects foe railway  building
iu the Boundary country never looked
l>iighlcr than  at the present  time.
The V. V. k V,. is located as far west
ns Oroville.   The location of the Phoenix spur is completed.   The Midway
and Vernon is backed hy ample capital lo assure its completion, and is only wailing for the Legislature to ratify
its promise of a suhsidy  which wus
Made at   last session,  to   commence
work.   No town in Southern British
Columbia is so favorably  situated   to
receive such exceptional  advantages
fiom the construction of these   differ
ent lines as Midway.   The main line of
the V. V. k Vi. lunches tliis  place im
mediately upon crossing the Inlernitt
tonal  boundary   line    from    Curlew.
Th-' Phoenix spur leases the main line
at a pmnt in the town.   The  Midway
nml  Vernon    starts from here, and
when ihe V. V. k &. commences eon-
mruction on its main line  west from
Midway, th" 0,   P.   R.  will  he com
pelled lo build, and it, too, will  begin
construct foil nt this pnint, which will
make four roads building out of Mid
way nt one time.   This  Is no flowery
hallucination of an imaginary  brain,
but cold facts that cantiiil be got over.
It  is simply   tlie  natural   course   of
eveiilf.   This is the natural gateway
from the   CoiiJit  to   the   Kootenays
through which all lines have  to pass,
ns is recognised by all  the companies
wlm propose to operate   the lines in
question, and all that is now required
to start, construction  on  these four
roads inside of sixty days,  is a little
wise and just  legislailrn   in   dealing
with lhe railway question,  when th
house meets,
justified as is proven liy the results,
and the fact Ihal no dividends were
paid since October 1001), wus not be-
cutise tbe mine was mil, in it position
lo do so, but because the management
decided that wilh more money expended on the properly, it would be in
a posilion to pay increased dividends
later, and the shareholders are now beginning to benefit from the wise policy
adopted by the directors. Regarding
the recent low quotations for Cariboo-
McKinney slock it will be remembered
that iu November we published an
article explanatory of the cause, which
was that a Toronto hunk, which held a
large block of shares as security for a
loan, seized tbe psychological moment
when lhe shares Hrst coalmen, ed lo
advance early in October, to realise,
hut the market being abnormally
timid and sensitive Immediately became panic us lbe big offerings continued lo cuine ont with extraordinary
rapidity. Cariboo shares experienced
a similar slump on it'foi mer occasion,
followed shortly nfterwii'ds by an unprecedented raise and it would appear
from present indications that the
recent slump is going lo he followed
hy a similar raise, as there is at present
an increased demand forCarihoo stock
caused no doubt by a strike of a body
of gond ore, together wilh the dividend which has heen declared, It is
generally understood that the mine
was never in a lulller position than it
is at present and the payment of a
dividend will greatly change the opin
ion of the properly in tlie minds of a
number whn had probably lust faith in
il, so we may from now on look for a
continued advancement in the quotation of Cariboo McKinney shares.
At a meeting of I he directors nf the
Cariboo, Camp McKinney. held lust
Wednesday a dividend of IJ cents per
share was declared. This is the first
dividend paid since October 1000, bul
previous to that lime $108,078 in dividends were paid. Much speculation
has heen indulged in for some time by
those unacquainted with the circumstances why it was that the Cariboo
had not lieen paying regular dividends
as it bii'l formerly heen doing. The
fact that no dividend had lieen pnid
since October. 1000 together with the
decrease in value of tbe Carihoo stock,
gave Ihe impression to many, who
Were not in a position to understand,
thut the Cariboo was noi the properly
Ihal il was when il wits paying such
larjge dividends, but to anyone who is
at all familiar with Ihe mamigemenl
it-lithe Cariboo or who hits even fol
lowed the reports of the Carihoo McKinney Co.. it is easy to understand
ivlly no dividends have been paid for
some lime. At the last annual meet
big of ihe compuny held in Toronto
about a year ago the most important
feature of the reports piesenled was
that Ihe management hud decided to
temporarily suspend paying dividends
in order thill the product'of the mine
might lie put buck iuto the properly
to iiisuie a heavier production laler on.
It was this policy Ihal has placed Ihe
big American railway systems ou Iheir
present excellent basis, and the same
policy adopted by the management of
the Carlhoo.la placing Ihe properly in
h similar substantial footing. During
the year I0IH), $50,000 was paid to Ihe
ehai ('holders, but owing to difficulties
encountered In tbe working of the
mine; .vhich entailed unusual expense,
Ihe profits arising from tlie company's
operations were Hot as large as was
anticipated, so uot Ing upon the recommendation of the managing director,
the directors determined on the policy
tt<above outlined, and this policy has
been carried out with the result us anticipated by the directors, and IheCitri-
hoo Is now in excellent shape and in a
position to pay regular dividends.
Much money has lieen expended during the past year in gelling the property in Its present satisfactory con
4ilion, but the expenditure Was well
The Montreal Guselle recently con*
lained un interview with Smith Curtis,
member nf the provincial bouse from
lhe Rossland riding, in which that
gentleman was questioned as lo Ihe
railway question in this province and
in reply said :
"I notice that certain newspaper
utterances in British Columbia are Inserted in the eastern press directed
against allowing or assisting 'Jim'
Hill's branch lines in Southern Briiish
Columbia. Our people want railway
compel ition. and nre hound lo have it.
We have a right to ask the Dominion
government to assist Ihese branch
lines through mountainous districts.
The railway must precede population
iu such cases. There is no danger thai
Auiericnn railway connection will be
oilier than beneficial to us. if non-
intercourse with the south were no'
good for us il would not be good for
Montreal; cut off your city's connection with the south before you actively prevent our conned ion with the
smith. The proposed Ooast-Kuot'enay
railway bus caused tbe foundeiing of
the Dunsmuir government which hus
sided with the Canadian Pacific Ruil
way, and delays i's construction. The
opposition of the Canadian Pacific
Kailway is easy to understand, The
new route mikes the distance from Ihe
rich Boundary country 325 miles, as
lignum he Canadian Pacific route, 050.
There are only u few thousand people
now uliing Ihe route of the Coast-Koot
enay railway, but once the railway is
started the population will tremendously increase, and a rich mining, farming aud ranchingcouilry will be exploited. Hon, Mr. Siflon has recently
stated that the yearly interest on lbe
money given lo aid the Crow's Nesl
Railway in $100,00, but lhat the customs and Inland Revenue have been
increased I hereby $500,000 a year. The
huilding of Ihe Coast Kootenay Rail
way will duplicate ibat iesult, and the
governiuenl of Canada should uid Ibis
and other necessary railway lines
which we desire to see buill. We have
territory o|ienrd up justifying the
building of over twelve hundred miles
of railway, and these lines should be
built within the next four years, and
will mean an expenditure of $35,000,-
000 ; two-thirds of this would go in
wages ; and will enormously conduce
to lhe rapid growth of the province."
When Mr. Curtis mude the slate*
ment that our people -vant railway
Competition and nre bound to have It
he expressed lhe opinion of nearly
every resident of Southern British Columbia, and when the house meets on
Feb. 20th Mr. Dunsmuir will find that
neither bis lengthy appeals to tbe
electors, through lhe press of Ihe province, nor his discourteous letter to
Sir Wilfred Laurier, will reconcile Ihe
people of Southern British Columbia
lo lhe luetics adopted at the last
meeting of the legislature lo prevent
competition in railways in Ihis province. The Premier's actions in connection with the building of Ihe Coast-
Kootenay roud nt thnt time were disliked hy the people, but when he tries
lo defend his actions, Ihis dislike is
turned to disgu-t and Ihu,' is the only
feeling the residents of Southern British Oolumhla have for lhe Premier today. Bul for his partiality lo the 0.
P. R. the Coast-Koolenuy railway
from here to the Coasl would now be
under construction. Sn under the
circumstances, how can tbe people of
tliis poiHon of the piovince have any
sympathy for Dunsmuir or his govern
ment? However, the time of the
Dunsmuir administration is shorl, but
none too short to suit the people, for
when the house meets tbo Premier and
his benighted followers will reap the
reward of their unjust legislation in
connection with the building of Ihis
rond that means so much to this province in gi-ncinl and Southern British
Columbia in particular.
RAILWAY   NEWS
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district.   With the advent of more rail-
-»
ways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

Will Increase its Capital.
Ottawa, Jan. 27.—The Canadian
Pncille Railway has applied to the
Dominion government for approval of
a resolution atilhoiiziDg the Board of
Directors with the sanction of lbe
shareholders to increase the capital
slock of the company for the purpose
of making great improvements all
along the line of tlie railway,
These improvements will aggregate
$20,000, which is the amount by which
the capital slock of the conipnny is
sought lobe increased. The wiirk of
improvement has already been practically started, and will be carried out
innlljiarls of the Dominion during
the next year or Iwo,
This is the first time in the history
of the Dominion that a railway company has been financially strong
enough to raise additional capital by
the selling of Ils comninn stock. An
additional arrangement, beyond the
fact of the financial standing of the
company, has been effected to insure
that every dollar of slock issued shall
be represented by a dollar 111 cash ill
betterment of the railway. Tbe governnient bus stipulated, nnd officers of
thu company have absolutely agreed,
that none of the stock shall be sold below pat.
The purpose for which the additional
stock is to bo disposed of is to
enable the conipnny to double-
track a large part of the line,
and for new idling stock, locomotives
and cars and the laying Of heavier
rails along the presenl line.and lo provide such other Improvements as may
be found necessary to cope with the
large increase in traffic, which lias taken place, und which is expecti d to con
tinue In the tulitre,
The money is to lie expended in
somewhat the following manner : Rolling stock, $0,000,01)0 ; double tracking,
$0,000,000 i Montreal, $1,1300,0001 new
eleyiitt'rs and improvementsnttermin*
