A Description of Its Delectable Climate, Its Boundless Stores of
Mineral Wealth. Its Farming: Lands and Interminable Forests of Timber.
T. L. Grahamo, of Naiiaiino. who
recently visited the Keitle river country, has written the following regarding Ihe resources nt this dislrict, He
points out the necessity of a railway
from here to the const, and gives an
idea of what, ihis country would lie if

thai wonderland of the West, nothing
is mure obvious than Ih" fuel lhat vei y
mu. ti remains to lie done by the railway companies in the nuttier of extending and adding lo theii lines iu all
directions. It is tine ihat none have
lieen more apt loseiue lipoil Ihis fact
than the gieat Canadian Pacific railway, which, itis understood, Iijis projected lilies upon all the more feasible
routes, and bus included in its policy
the gradual extension of ils system so
as to ramify the Southern Kootenays,
in the most effectual manner. With
the straggle of smaller concerns iu obtain a foothold in this territory, lhe
people of Briti-h ('oluml.ia are familiar. It is one of the most romantic
chapters in lhe railway history of the
Dominion. While many have been
keenly disappointed at lhe failure of
thuse compel ing companies t.. achieve
their object, the Canadian PaclHc railway has given the strongest pledges
that ihe lines of communication which
are lo solve the problem of "what to
dn wilh the Kontenays," will be buill
all in good lime.     '
Pei-haps the most Interesting of all
the railway lines in the upper country
is the Columbia and Western, which
extends from West Robsott. on the
Columbia river, lo Midway, and has
leen surveyed much faitIn-r west. The
history of the buililing of liiislni'is

Immediately after leaving llnbsoii,

ed to contain ample deposits nf the
precious metals to justify the mosl extensive operations. All around this
district tlie prospect ins aie busy at all

Ki om this il can he gathered thai what

of the suri-oiinding forests, While the
poet notes wilh ecstacy the Bound, the

down the possibilities for factories anil

Across lhe divide quite another kind
of scenery awaits i he I reveller. Leaving the mountains with a rush, tbe
train brings one in sight of lhe far-
fj....«l valley of Ihe Kettle.   Well hns

of tile Kontenays. Experts will tell
the visitor that the soil is of ji soil
which is admirably suited lo what may
lie termed garden-farming; ihat is,
mixed farming in whieh fruit and vegetable raising takes second place.
The aspect of ibe country reminds
one strongly of certain parts of West

borders if Scotland. Ever) where are
to be seen the trim cottages, or more
pretentious dwellings Of-people who arc
evidently well-to do. One might search

the sun is mellowing into lhe west .and
lhe blue smoke ascends from cottage
and farmhouse straight into the sap

-trip along British Columbia's southern
frontier, lhe available area is hy in

so far il can raise enough to supply the
numerous mining camps iu the mountains north mid \veot. It is a question,
though, whether in the event of those
mines being worked to their full extent, and large towns nnd even cities
spiinging up around the valley, if the
farmersaudfrilit and vegetablegrowers
of that locality could product ougli
to supply ihe demand.
This is a portion of the great p.

Since the railway was pushed ihrough
Ibat wild but rich and fertile valley
there hns heen a wonderful increase itl
the population and the piospeclsare
that within a few years that part of
Uie province will he noted fur Immense

Leaving (ireenwood, the railway
goes on tn Midway, and Ihere, if possible, the thirst of the agii. lilt ural (level-
npinenl is met with. This may. possibly, be due tn lhe fact that one is then
approaching the famed Okunagan legion. The salubrity of the climate
makes one feel the spirits rising and
lassitude disappearing. Il is tbe easiest,
uf predictions tn make that the dwell-
eis in this favored region w ill have go
abend enterprise mid great energy, as
they have the finest climatic conditions
in the province to hearten them.
It is now proposed to extend the
line aliuig the Boundary through the
renowned copper-gold region of the
Siiuilkaineeu, a district of the province
which has a glorious future liefoie it ;

It is simply impossible lo predict the
enormous change which tlie existence
of this railway will have upon the
commerce and industries of this piovince. The placing of tlie Kootenays
within seven or eight bonis of Victoria
and Vancouver can have hut one result-the stimulation to an unprecedented and extraordinary extent uf
trade of all kinds. Only thus can llm

The following taken from the Rossland .Miner shows clearly what the re-'
spec-live editors of three of the most
Important dailies of the province think
of the editor of the Nelson Tribune :
The blasphemous bully who conducts
the Nelson Tribune in lhe inlerest of
indecency hns opened his 0. P. K.-
nioiilh just once too often, and has
lhad a deserved cast igat inn administer
ed to his lough hide hy the Victoria
Tunes. Bully Houston, desiring lo
leave nobody free from his spewing*,
charged the coast newspapers with

upon Ihe cbcsl at the same time fnr

The Nelsnn  Tribune has a very low
opinion nf the coast newspapers.   It
mentions six uf thein ns In ing dull, fiat
prosy, fnil by and generally uninteresting,   Genius is confined entirely lo the
interior of the province, according lo
nur brilliant contemporary ot the Am-
bilious City.   The Tribune man never
had a great admiration I'm- the coast
cities, instil ul ions or  people, and we
must admit that the style and manners
of the representative of Nelson are not
properly appreciated here.   He has. as
he would say himself, run up against.

"propositions" in Victoria, Our people

and development.   But for liim and
his small following in thc House the
governiuenl might have been forced to
yield tn public opinion nnd adopt a
policy which  would  have resulted in
ihe emancipation of the province and
the creation of business activity where
l here is now stagnation and depression.
The member for Nelson  excuses his

that ihe merchants of Nelson must he

. and a protectionist, hut he cannot, deceive anyone wilh such an excuse as
thul.    We do nol believe the people of
such an enterprising place have any
desire  to   be placed  in a position nf
splendid or any other kind of Isolation.
It i.s as much in  their interest as itis
iu lhe inlerest of llm people ou the
coast lo see all pails of the province
opened up and placed in communion-
'tion wiih each other hy railways and
they know perfectly well lhat il is not
desirable    thai,    the    transportation
routes lo the s"a const shnuld all be
under Ihe control of one corporation
as cerlain newspapers are reported lo
he.   No doubt   they will have an op-
pnittinity hefore long of acquainting
their member In a practical way wilh
their opinions,
"As to lhe slyle of the six dailv papers no the const, a grenl deal depends
upon ihe point of view and environ
mini. Wo are disposed to believe
that many of the brilliant "things''
which appear in some journals would
not be appreciated in thiseffel.esectioii
of British Columbia. Vulgarity is
sometimes mistaken for originality
and profanity for cleverness and wit
even by members uf legislatures."
The Colonist hits him also : "It is
I he misforl une of I he eoasl newspapers
to have fallen under I he disapproval of
the. bright and shining light  in   Ibe
journalistic world, the Nelson Tribune.
It is likewise alleged thnt His Satanic
Mniesty finds the Ten Coiiiiiiniidiiieiils
shockingly commonplnec."
Bully Houston is not only a disgrace
lo Nelson—he  is a disgrace to lhe C.
P. R. and will prove a. losing proposi
tion lo that corporalioii.
The Nelson Tribune is one of tlie
few papers iu the province that is endeavoring lo uphold the Diinsmuir
government in its aclion in connection
with the Coast-Kootemiy railway. Il
comes forward and boldly announces
that no action of the Dunsmuir govern*
went hus in any way Interfered with
the building of an Independent com
petitive railway from Coast lo Kootenay. The government would b»
fortunate indeed if its action in con'
nection wlih the const ruction of this
line nf railway were favored wilh such
admiration by any paper other lhan
the Tribune, but its editorial utterances
are guided entirely by the 0. P. IL.
which is praclically the goveri mt.
Tlie Ti ibiine in its endeavors lo shield
ihe government  iu its recent action
regarding the building nf this line says
lhat the country through which ihe
road will run is not fenced in and tin re
are two charters under which tlie wurk
could he underlaken.   It then goes Oil
to say .that the  V. V. k E.  is one
charter and is controlled by J. ,1, Ilill
and Mann & Mackenzie,   It does Uot
say that, tho C. P. R, has the other
charter and that there is nothing in
the world to prevent thai company
from going ahead  and   huilding lhe
road without a cent of suhsidy.   The
country is no more fenced in lhe case
of the C. P. R. than in that of the V.
V.&E.   Either company is privileged
to construct the road in question wil limit submitting to  the policy bf the
government, providing no subsidy is
asked,  but the Const Kootenay road
never was intended to he limit inde-
pendentof government aid.   It was au
enterprise requiring public assistance
and the V. V. * E. hasequally as good
a claim to that government assistance
as the C. P. R.   But the governiuenl
instead of doing nothing to prevent
lhe huilding of the road, has, on the
contrary, done everything in ils power
lo prevent the V. V. k B. from build
ing the road.   If there were anything
left undone   by the government  tn
make it impossible for lhat company
to submit to its terms, it was because
the  Dimsiiiiiir  government  did nol
think about it at ihat time, and wa-
not omitted intentionally.   -When the
government realized that the V. V. A
Vi. people were prepared lo huild and
it became  necessary  lo declate the
terms of the contract, it submitted a
rigorous railway policy ; each clause ol
which was framed purposely for shut
ling nut the V. V. k E   However, im
possihle as it seemed for that company
to accept the terms of the con tract.
Ihey did sn, with  the slight inodili.i
(ion the government was compelled
into making, ivith  one single excep-
iio,., ,,inch I,..it ii rfitvea to, worn.I
have forfeited all its claim  to a  Doniinion suhsidy.   The government adhered to this provisioo, knowing tlmt
itwas its only means of preventing
the V. V. k E. from building the rond,
and lhe contract was not let,   The V.
P. R, never offered lo build Ihe road.
That company, accustomed lo receiving such enormous bonuses it has been
used to receiving wilhoul any comes
sionsin return, did not feel disposed to
put in a tender, when the terms of the
contract were made known.   The con
tract would certainly have heen let to
the V. V. k E. bad not the C. P. It.,
with  its   dog-in the-manger   policy,
stepped in, for the terms on which the
V. V. k E. olf.-red to build it on were
satisfactoiy lo the governiuenl a short
t hue ago.   There is no reason why the
C. P. R. should  he awarded  tbe con-
tract for the building of lhe Coast-
Kootenay railway, on  the contrary
there are   several  plausible  reasons
why it should  not receive ihe (ran-
hise,   In the first place to allow thai
company the right to huild the road
would be disastrous to the country, hs
in   all   proliahility   it   would  make
tho   best   of   the   monopoly.    F. r
the country to be dependent upon one
railway, and es|iecially if il were con
trolled.by Ihe C. P. R., would be very
unsatisfactory tothe people who would
have to do business with that rond.
Theprcseot   exorbitant rates charged
by that company over its lines, where
it does not have tn compete wiih some
other road, is an   indication  of whnt
would be the result if it had Ihe   monopoly of all the the trade from I lie
Kootenays to the Coast.   Then again
if it weie awarded the  contract, Ihe
country would l-e much longer in being
developed than it wonld be if the V.V.
k E. receive the snlwidy,  as  the former company, when the Midway-Ver-
nnn Railway is built, will have a short
line to the const and  will  he in no
hurry to build  the  line over  Hope
mountain, while if the V. V. k K. con
siruclsthe road work would he com

It. is understood that, the mountain
barrier encountered at Tobacco river
ou th« Jennings route can be avoided
by continuing up tho Kootenay river
to u point south of the Galton range
where a feasible route, is obtained
across the Tobacco plains. There is
also aiiniher route presented via Elk
liver tun th of the Galton mountains.
The preference given the Jennings
route is because of tbe hettei facilities
of bundling the coal products of the
Orow's Nest, nearly all of the shipments being designed for the west.
By touching the main line at Jennings
the rang,*, of mountains between Kalis
pell aud Jennings will be avoided,
thus giving practically a down grade
haul from the coal fields to Spokane
and the Cascades.
According to the articles of incorporation of the Montana k Great
Northern, Ihree branch lines are contemplated as follows :
First, from Jennings station on thc
line of the Great Northern in Flathead
county, in a northerly direction tn the
boundary line between the Uniled
Stales and Canada, and from a point
ahum, live miles south of said boundary
line and near Tobacco river, southeasterly to a station on the line of
Raid Great Northern in the county of
Second, front Kalispell station on
the hue of the Great Northern in
Flathead country, in a southerly dheotlon to Flathead lake, and from thence
southeasterly to a junction with the
Northern Pacific at or near Jocko
station, in Miusoula county.
Third, from a point at or near Chester station on the line of the Great
Northern, Choteau county, northerly
and northwesterly to a point in said
county near Sweet Grass Hills.
