To the Editor,
Dkau fciiK,—At the request of
the executive committee of tliis
association, I hand you copy ol'
resolution passed by them at
their last meeting.
In doing so, I'bog to state emphatically that our objects are
non-partizan in polities, but
business ones, solely for the
benefit of the mining industry.
We desire, therefore, to elicit
from each candidate for Parliamentary honour—whether Conservative, Liberal, Labour or
Socialist—his views on the subject matters which engaged the
attention of 250 delegates to
our last convention in Victoria,
whereat they represented the
ideas of Home six thousand persons dependent upon the success
of the mining industry and were
certainly well posted on the
several mining questions.
As an association, we have no
interest whatever in a party,
but we look to the Government
of the day, and the Opposition
of the day—which together
form the House of Legislature—
to care for the great and increasing industry of mining.
We ask that the new Government and Opposition shall,
which-ever, Party they represent,
not only refrain from retarding
this great industry, but that the
House when it meets will vigorously proceed to examine our
suggestions and amend the laws
which are proved to be injurious,
when we say the mining industry will rapidly"' become the
greatest revenue-producer, indirectly, in the Province,
This association includes till
classes of the mining industry! Bankers, lawyers, niine-
lownors, miners and muckers;
blacksmiths: engineers, civil,
mechanical and electrical; tini-
bermen, farmers and ranchers
smelter and refinery men; mine
managers, clerks, teamsters, et
al, whose political views include
Conservatism, Liberalism, Industrialism, Socialism, and the
rest of the political parties!
large and small. All arc, however, unanimously of the opinion
that each party member elected
shall be placed upon tt stand
hedged round by his public utterances, which it will bo impossible for him to escape from
as heretofore, for he will le-
present. not himself, but sonic
distinct party which will feel
tho responsibility and see that
ho who is elected to represent
itwilldo his duty, bearing in
mind that the mining industry
is a provincial question and not
u party one in any sense what
ever.    I am,
Yours truly,
John Khun.
short Coast-Kootenay line, eastward from Vancouver, will be
commenced in two week, accord*
ing to an announcement made
by McLean Bros. Surveyors
have been in the field for ten
days hetween Vancouver and
New Westminster, making a
detailed survey of a line previously decided upon. The promoters say that as soon as the
route is finally located actual
construction on right of way
will begin. Proposals will be
made to the city council of Vancouver regarding the, route of
entrance into this city, and pos>
sible concessions of a right of
way in the east end of False
Creek, as soon as practicable
after the return of the mayor
ai|d the city solicitor from their
Oitawa trip.
This is thc substance of the
statement made this morning
by Mr. Hugh McLean, partner
in the firm above-mentioned
"We have had a party of surveyors working for some time,"
said Mr. McLean, "locating a
route between this city and Xew
Westminster. We propose to
start from somewhere near the
centre of the city going east
ward from New Westminster
Avenue along the northern
shore of the city's False creek,
mud aflats, then around the
eastern end, crossing the Great
Northern extensionat the south
east corner of False creek. From
there our survey runs up u
ravine for a distance of several
blocks, then strikes south, passing the western side of Clark's
park, and will cross the main
wagon road to New Westminster at or near Cedar Cottage,
Our survey does not cross the
tram line at all. Then we come
back into New Westminster
from the western side. Leaving
false creek, our grade may be a
little heavier than the Great
Northern, but the route hus
other advantages, beside being
a little shorter, to counterbalance any loss in grade.
"Whether in the east end, we
come around the edge of the
title flats on piles, as the Great
Northern is doing, or build
higher up on tho property now
privately owned, is a matter for
the city council to aid us in deciding. We intend to lay the
proposition before the council
in a businesslike manner, and it
is for the mayor antl alderman
to say whether they will make
any concessions, and what thoy
will be. We are not looking for
something for nothing in return,
but we expect something of the
same treatment that it is giving
to other lines coming into the
"The total length of the Coast
Kootenay line as now proposed
is 370 miles. It was run eastward from Vancouver, crossing
the river at New Westminster,
through Chilliwack antl the
other districts to Hope, from
there to Nicola, and thence
through to Midway. This will
give connection both with the
C. P. K. and Great Northern at
the point last mentioned. In a
fortnight we commence construction from Hope towards
Vancouver. It is useless to talk
this year of starting building
from Hope eastwards through
the mountains, for that cannot
bo done in the winter. As has
already been stated, there is no
connection between our line
and the C. P. R. or the Great
Northern, or any other road."

The Loudon (Eng,) Recorder
evidently still regards Canada
as a dumping ground for criminals. Recently he released a
boy convicted of theft on condition that he go to Canada. He
afterwards sentenced a Canadian, who had been imprisoned
in Canada, and remarked that
foreign countries were in the
habit of sending their criminals
to Great Britain.
Tho McBride government has
suddenly grown ambitious and
taken an unwarranted interest
in the province. The building
of the V. V. & E. railway and
wagon roads to every old place
are among the many projects to
receive its immediate attention.
It seems rather a pity that such
an enterprising government is
to be put out of business on
Oct. 3rd, but the inevitable will
For three years the ranchers
on the hill above Midway have
been imploring the provincial
government to build a new road
or repair the old one, leading up
to their ranches, but all to no
avail. Now, on the eve of an
election the McBride government, promises money for this
work. This scheme is too old
to work successfully. The
spending of money on improve-
ments of this kind just before
election was in vogue in the
Garden of Eden and is too antiquated to catch the voter of today. Better try some new bait

Salt creek, after the elections on
Oct. 3rd,
Work has again been commenced on the West Fork wagon road. When this same announcement was made several
years ago it was welcomed with
joy by many industrious prospectors who hud advaneedahead
of civilization into that remote
district only uceessable by
means of a rough trail. A num
ber of mineral properties worthy
of attention had been located
up the West Fork and when
word was received that the
road would be built, the owners
of several of those properties
went to work getting out ore to
be hauled out ns soon as the
road was completed. It was an
unfortunate hour for those
mine owners when they put
faith in the provincial government's promise to build the
road, and began spending their
money on their properties; it
was equally, if not more so, unfortunate for the poor prospec-
ors who spent their last dollar
tne nope that the building ot
the road "would direct attention
to that district and afrord themj
an opportunity to receive some
reward for their labors and the
hardships incidental toaf rontier
life. In due time work was
commenced and the history of
that government piece of road
building is familiar to every
person within the province, or
we think we may, quite within
the bounds of veracity, say the
entire Dominion. Its publicity
was not due to any remarkable
feats of road building performed
by the government but as one
of the worst instances of the
squandering of public money
that has ever been haiidetl down
in history. After the squander
ing of something like $12,000 in
the payment of an army of
bosses and a few employers,
with only a few miles of road
completed, the enterprise was
abandoned. Again work was
resumed and with the display-
ment of the customary intelligence of the provincial government, bridges were built, which
admitted of another short piece
of road between them—under
water at certain times of the
year—being used. This accomplished, the governnient again
suspended work and left the
road, in a practically impassable
condition, until the present.
Now, on the eve of an election
the McBride governnient, with
probably less intelligence than
could possibly .through courtesy,
be attributed to its predecessor,
has commenced work on this
wagon road and asks the two or
three remaining residents of
that district to believe that it is
for their welfare that it is being
done, that all of a sudden it lias
taken an intense interest in that
long neglected district and wishes to see it opened up by a
wagon road. Nothing has occurred in that district to demand an immediate resumption
of work; no new strikes have
been reported; no new enterprises engaged in; then what
has directed the attention of
the government to this piece of
work and caused them to renew operations? Nothing, absolutely nothing beyortd the fact
that the provincial elections are
coming on and as a last hope of
securing the few votes in that
nearly deserted part of that
constituency the McBride gov
ernment, void of every quality
that is possible of admiration
and with deceit stamped on its
face, asks the voters up the
West Fork to become tempor
arily gullible enough to grasp
the golden bait. Will they do it-
will these enterprising, industrious and intelligent men who
have braved the hardships of a
frontier life mistake the insults
offered by the McBride govern
ment fur complaints ; will they
for a moment believe this work
is being started for any other
purpose than to get their votes?
certainly not. If there were a
voter up the West Fork who
was not definitely decided as to
how he would cast his vote, the
dishonorable tocticts adopted
by the McBride government to
obtain his support would but
have a contrary effect and
arouse his antagonism. The
former government erred grievously in not completing this
road and the present government has added insult to injury in attempting its completion at the present time.
