These limestones arc a h ird compact

beyond a few incidental (iiiestions
with u view to li ml out whether the
money was used to bribe ollicers of
the department, tbe government
counsel made no attempt to follow
this mutter up. It was shown that
the Poison linn was paid $124,400 for
building llie Vigilant cruiser, when
there was another offer in nt $K(1,000.
Mr. Miller believed that the other
offer wus for a smaller boat, but no
HpL't'ilU.utioiis were produced, If the
prices wtzvv for different boats, there j
was no competition. Again tin? Pol- j
sons were paid $45,400 for repairs on
the Aberdeen, while thoir ten ler wns
$17,000. All tlie rest was extras.
There was an engine bought from
this Iirm at a 'much higtu-r price than
another Under. All these transactions went on while the firm was issuing cheque** at election time'pay
able to cash, without the books
showing the consideration or who got
the monoy. Ths was less than livo
years ago. and today no member or
ollleer of the tirm enn explain these
transactions, though thfl main share
holder says that the husiness has not
boon prolltgblo, and should therefore
call for careful accounting. Hut the
Cassels commission is not following
up these matters.
Interesting Inquiry   .stopped.
It. tt. Mackay, of Hamilton, testified that he had received $7,500 for
the use of tho steamer "Golspie,"
delivering lighthouse supplies on thc
lakes. Me offered tin service for
$5,800, but the offer was not accepted
so ho raised tho amount by $1,700,
nnd got tlie larger, sum. Here, too
the government counsel suddenly lost j
interest. Mr. Mack-ay started to ex- ■
plain thnt win n he was seeking the
larger price lie enlisted the services |
of Mr. Zimmerman, Liberal member
for Hamilton. Mr. I'enin, who was
examining him, told tbe witness lie
did not Want to hear anything about
tlmt, and the political end of the
buslnoss was eut. out. Hut, to tho |
public it Ih a matter of some Interest to Know how far Hie politicians

The Greatest Need
? The greatest need of the Kootonay
T valley  is the immediate construction
+ of the Kooteoay Central Railway.
+ in this    valley,    rich     agricultural
♦ lands,    unlimited forests and grazing
♦ lauds, there is a lack of transporta-
T tion facilities. In the mountains on
X both sides of the Kootenay riven,
T there are mines that are known to he
X rich, that have been developed to
9 a producing     stage, that     wiih ade-
♦ quote  means  oi   transportation would
become shipping mines.
The benefits tbat will come to
Kast Kootenay, and particularly the
Cranbrook district, through the immediate construction of this much
needed railway can not be told. The
farmer, stockman, lumberman and
miner will receive renewed and constantly growing prosperity.
The building of a railway through
the Kootenay Valley from a point on
the Crow line near Granorook to
Golden on tlie main line of tbe C.P.
K., will help the settlement of tributary valleys that arc surprisingly
fertile; ranges that support many
cnttle waiting for a market, hillsides and mountains that will yield
rich mineral wealth, need only this
railway to bring them prosperity.
The proposed route of thifl railway
has often been discussed, has been
fairly explored, nnd when the railway is completed will add now glories
to thc wealth of Kast Kootenay.
Alter traversing through a .ection
of rich country, and when it has
reached the Windermere district, it
will find large supplies of ore to be
shipped from thc mines, and the
railway will tind a large amount of
buslnoss coming from the Upper
Columbia, valley when its lands are
opened up for Hcttleme'nt through the
construction nf thin railway.
Mining Development
The mineral development which has
hern dono on mines in the Cranlirook
District during thc pant year Ih most
gratifying, und the work in every in
stance has been productive of good
results. Continued development will
attract, tho attention nf mining men,
who will ho anxious to invest in
mines and prospocts having merit.
Inquiries are received almost dnily
regarding thc mining outlook. With
better transportation facllltlos the
Cranbrook District will bo the mill
iiu: attraction of the province.
Will bound along
Everything Booms to indicate tbat
tins much favored district, Kast
Kootenay, is on thc threshold of a
new era. With thc opening of
spring the new order of things will
have fairly begun, and by mid sum
mor, aniens all signs fail, the
Oranbrook district will be boundin-uj
along with a rapidity of progress
such as the district has never pre
viouily experienced before.
