Report „of Committee on
See Great Future for Sunset Prov
inod of Dominion.
The following recently appeared in
a New York paper:
"Wall street, has paid .little attention to news of extreme Importance
from British Columbia. The Grand
Trunk Pacific has this week let a
$10,000,000 contract lor a third section of 140 miles of rullroiul in Hritish Columbia. The company is
building east Irom Prince llupert
and west from Yellow-head Puss. It
will have trains running from Prince
Rupert to Yellowbcud Pass in two
years, and will 0pcn some of the
most magnificent timber, [arming
and mining country in tlie world.
Although the region is far north, it
is within the iniluence of the Japan
current and the chiuook winds. The
region is destined to become one of
the richest in America.
"Wall street may marvel at a railway outlay of $50,000,000 in a Binglo
year lor the province of British Columbia, but it forgets that Ilritish
Columbia has seven times the urea
of the state of New York; that it
has double the urea of Prance, and
mineral and agricultural wealth surpassing that of the German empire,
and a climate of unBUrpassing salubrity. Moreover, Ub fisheries are thfl
richest on the continent, and Us islands, its hikes, its rivers mid mountain scenery outrivals that of the
"British Columbia, of nil purls of
the North American continent should
bo watched by commercial men. The
energy of 20,000,0011 horses can he
harnessed from its rivers, and its
coal, Iron, gold, silver, copper, lead
antimony, nnd zinc mines will yet ri
val tho greatest ol the world. Mole

Comet May be Seen.
During December thc groat Hailley
comot, which ls now seen only by
means of camora and larger tele-
s 'opes, will be visible to the naked

r lived with anticipations of delight
I v thc inquisitive nature planted
v ithlo. the human brain, but what is
1 redlcted will follow is calculated to
create- dismay if aot serious appre-
1 ensions ol disaster from the wonderful visitant.
It is predicted—and the predictions
.f astronomical science are a verity
-that it will nightly increase ln
I ulk anil length, until at Its most
brilliant development, the comet will
1 robably stretch across one-third of
I lie sky.   It is estimated to bo 100,-
000 miles In diameter, four times
ltlnt of the enrth. Its elipse ls at
is perihelion 36,000,000 from that
rentral luminary, and 500,000,000 farther than Neptune, the most distant
iiatlct in our system.
It is ihis comet which In 146G
drove Europe wild with excitement
: nil fear. It has reappeared with
regular pace ut intervals of 75 years,
and always with serious apprehension of some atmospheric or material
disturbance that would result in disaster to mundane life. Older people
.an remember that as children they
heard accounts of the "shooting

comet gave rise to such comment

to Kamloops Convention.
A meeting ol thc Cranbrook District Conservative Association was
held in Mighton's Hall on Monday
T. T. McVlttle, president of the
association occupied the chair, G. T.
Rogers, secretary.
The chairman stated that the meeting was called for the purpose of
electing delegntes to attend the Provincial Conservative convention to
be held in Kamloops on December
The following delegates wore elected:
A. E. Watts, ol Wattsburg, W, D.

Thnmas Caven, M. P. P., lor thi
hard, clean and well won light, which
resulted In his election.
Mr. Caven, in n very appropriate
speech, thanked ttie Oonservai Ives,
and included everybody, thnt assisted In thc light: and wished to give
credit to nil thc people who kindly
gave him such a handsome majority.
He said: "That. It was due to thc

Seven New Railroad Projects in
British Columbia.
That the early session of the local
house, convened for the 20th January
proximo, will not be without its new
railway policy und its lobby, despite
tho fact that the Canadian Northern
and tlie Kettle Itlvcr Valley railway
legislation have premier places promised ou tlie order paper, is apparent
fr0m the appearance in the Gazette
already no fewer than nine notices of
special railway bills, seven of which
are with respect to new projects.
A bill is also promised for the revival of the Vancouver and Nicola
Valley Hai.wny company charter of
t'JDS, and another to oxtend the time
for the commencement of operations
on the enterprise of the Graham Is-
Valley Railway company charte of

and others preliminary to the formation of companies and the construction of railroads from Vancouver to

to thc northern boundary ol the province. Abbott & Hart-McHarg will
seek incorporation, with the usual
powers for a company to build a
new short line railroad from Vancouver t(> tho neighbor city of New

Provincial Revenues for Past Year
Show Gains.
The statement of provincial revenue
[ for tho pnst fiscal year has just been
completed at thc     Treasury   Depart-
1 ment and, whilo precedent forbids the
, giving oat of nny detail information
until the return In     Its entirety has
I been     laid    before parliament,   this
i much   may   be disclosed—that    the
i showing is hy far the most sattsfac-
: tory in tho entire history of tho Pro-
' vincc.     With a credit at     the bank
i ol upward of live and a hall million
dollars,     nnd thc healthy conditions
ol revenue exhibited by tho just completed statement,   there can    bo no
question as to    the eminently satisfactory condition of provincial money
Paradoxical as it may seem, the
statement for tho just past fiscal
year ls in reality a statement Ior but
nine months, the amended provincial
revenue act ol 1908 having gone into
force and effect, und the fiscal year
being theroby re-defined, In the past
the custom bus been to divide the
fiscal year ol Ilritish Columbia at
the end ot Juno. Experience haB
shown it. more practicable, however,
to end the provincial business year
wit.li the month of March, and thit
will henceforward be tho rule. Th"
fiscal year will extend from April let
to March 31st, the new order being
initiated with the present Bet of pub
lie accounts.

Ottawa, Dec. 7.—The report of the
special committee appointed by It. I..
Borden at the request ot the Conservative caucus for the purpose of taking into consideration matters connected with tho approaching convention ot the party was presented us
"That a committoo of 50, of whom
not more than 20 shall be members
ot parliament, to be known as the
committee on preliminary arrange
ments for the Dominion convention
of the Liberal Conservative party be
appointed by our leader.
"That said committee be called together    at  Ottawa for    their    first
meeting on some day    in the month
of January,   1910,   to decide on tho
best   way   of    getting    the    party J
throughout     the   Dominion to   join
heartily in the convention to nrrangc
a system of    obtaining delegates lor
the convention,    which, it is suggested,   should be held In     the city otj
Winnipeg two or three days previous
to the    Winnipeg exhibition,     which
will bo held    early ln July, the final,
decision as to    the place of   holding
It, however, to be left until tho llrst
meeting ot the committee 0n preliminary arrangements, and thut in the
meantime     our leader     he asked to I
communicate   with the Conservative |
provincial prime ministers, with the;
Conservative leaders    of thc opposition in provinces which have a Liberal government,    and also with tho |
provincial Conservative     Association;
executives ln     those provinces where
such exists, and    request their opinion as to the time and place of hold-;
ing   the   convention, in    order that
their views   may be    luld before the!
committee    on    the preliminary ur- i
rangements at its meeting in  Janu-
Your committee further rccom-.
mends that each member of parliament and defeated Conservative can-|
didiitc be requested to consult the
executive of the association of his!
electoral division with the object of:
obtaining their views and thnt the
whips of the respective provinces be
requested to transmit immediately to
each defeated conservative candidate'
a copy of this recommendation when
concurred in by caucus, and to invite an expression of the views and
opinions of said executive thereon."
The above report wub ununitnously
concurred in and adopted.
This Board, it is perfectly plain, de-
;cidcd that the G. T. P., charges
; wore justified, and that there had
been frauds in constructing the line.
Thereupon the Transcontinental Commission tr)ok stops to suppress the
reports. It was successful in this,
though the report had not been made
{'.ll Mr. i.umsden at once resigned.
In his letter of resignation he stated
thnt "Neither the general specifications nor any instructions had been
adhered to, but jyn the contary large
I amounts of material have heen returned as solid rock, which should
only have been clussllled as loose
' rook or common excavation, and ma-
l terfal bad boon returued as loose
ruck which could huvc boon handled
hy ploughing 0r scraping and should
have been returned as common excavation. In other words the National Transcontinental^ own flngi-
! necr deliberately says that there ha.
' been cheating on nn enormous scale.
ID The Transcontinental Commission appointed a Chief Engineer more
to its taste—the same Mr. Gordon
Grant who sided with the contractors against Major Hodglns ln the
controversy over thc same district P,
which had caused Mr. I.umsden's retirement—nnd then fought hard and
successfully to hnve tho new Board
of Arbitration restricted ln Its investigations.
That is tlie situation. Mr. Lumsden hns given up a splendid position
because he says that there ls stealing going on along tho line of railway. The G. T. P., engineers make
the same assertion and give nearly
200 instances of bad work. The
Transcontinental Commission has
suppressed tho report of one arbitration and is doing its bost to limit
the scope of the second arbitration.
Great Rivers; Fertile Valleys
In the columns of the first issue of
John Houston's Fort George Tribune
William Blakemore, a pioneer, describes the vicinity of that hundred-
year-old metropolis, but as yet only
containing twenty white people Mr.
Blakemore had Just returned fr0m a
trip to the source ol the Bear Itiver.
He found the valley of the Bear teeming with moose. On his way ho discovered coal bedB with thirty feet of
coal in an exposure of 150 feet. On
arriving at the Fraser River he took
to a canoe and floated down stream.
It was the 28th of October, and fine
summer weather prevailed. He was
overtaken in his trip by the Btcamor
Nechaco, which was returning from
a voyage up tho Fruser above Gis-
combe Rapids, 205 miles farther up
stream than Fort George. Ho could
have gone 110 miles farther to Tete
Jaune Cache, within sixty miles of
the Yellowhead Pass. The country
from there to Fort George is a low,
flat and fertile valley, whore railway
construction will be ns easy, Mr.
Blakemore thinks, ns the prairies.
Captain Bonaer of the Nechaco has
navigated his steamer up thc river
of that name to Fraser Lake, 120
miles from Fort George. Thc conclusion Is that there arc 500 miles ol
steamboat Waterways within 125
miles ot Fort George, and probably
10,000,000 acres suitable for mixed
farming ln the soino area. Two or
three Portages on the Fraser would
establish moderately easy communication with Lytton, on tho line ol
tho Canadian Poclllc Railway. These
factB are a revelation of tho new
empire being opened up by thc Gmnd
Trunk Pacific In British Columbia.

To Stop Railway Discriminations
o'ttawa, Nov. 9.-A bill which Mr.
Claude McDonald is promoting will
if allowed to pass remove a form of
discrimination which has caused a
good deal of annoyance ln some part*
Ontario. Under section 77 of the
railway Act no discrimination is allowed a railway company, and another section, No. 341 gives Companies
thc right to issue family, commutation, and other cheap rate tickets.
No provision, however, has been inserted in the law to prevent railway
companies from discriminating
against whole communities; as when
two towns are equally distant from
a centre and one gets suburban rates
and the other ls denied them. Mr.
Macdonald is seeking to rectify this.
P.l.tion favorites
Ottawa, Dec. 8.—The Quebec Bridge
Company was a wonderful affair. It
could not build the bridge, the structure fell down and killed about 60
workmen. But the members of the
Compuny have managed to mane
their connection witb it pay them
despite the utter failure of their worn
'lho shareholders got their money
bnck plus live per cent interest and a
ten cent bonus. It has been brought
out In Parliament that S. N. Parent
received interest $2,000, and a uonus
of 10 per cent on (7,000 capital stock
owned by him, and Mr. M. P. Davis
received Interest, $8,411, and a bonus
of 10 per cent on $94,900 capital

Ottnwa, Dec. 8.—The Govornment

Lumsden, thc Chief Engineer of tlie
National Transcontinental Railway,
These disclose a most serious state
affairs.   In brief, the facts uro:-
(1 The Grand Trunk Pacific, which
Is tho Government's partner in the
enterprise, Btntcd over and over
again that the grossest dishonesty
was prevailing on tho National
transcontinental, that, thc over-classification was willnlly excessive, and
that there was enormous (muds In
regard to thc over-break. It may he
explained that when a cutting Is
blasted out 0f r0ck there is hound
to be a little excess matter removed,
and this ls thc over break.

On Friday anl Hat unlay nights,

of pictures from a fairy stnry book,
Mr. W. A. Milne's well known fairy
spectacle, "The Pixies" will bo presented with a gigantic cast nf one
hundred ami nay ol Oranbrook's
brightest young people, all grotesquely and beautifully costumed to represent all the best loved elves nl
fairyland, brownies, pixies, goblins,
insects, fairies, butterflies, etc. Ue
Hides the one hundred children who
take part, about fifty young ladies
will take the principal parts, Prince
Klorinel, Queen Titania, Angollcn,
Cholly Chrysanthemum, tho dude, an

Jones, rehearsals being held in thc

the opera Is to be Riven. Mr. Milne,
thc author and director, presents ii
in Fernie on Wednesday nnd Thursday nights, and will reach hero 0n
Friday of this week to take charge
of the Inst week's rehearsals, thu*
incuring a finished presentation ol
unique entertainment.
Pixies, Brownies, and Goblins were
little men not much larger than a
man's thumb, who lived in caves under tho mountains of Norway, Sweden, Germany and Scotland—so our
forefathers believed. They had very
stout bodies, large goggle eyes, fat
cheeks and wide grinning mouths.
They worked all day around their anvils, for they were little smiths. But
at night while weary mortals slept,
they flocked all over tho world'bent
upon missions of good or mischief to
mankind. They weeded the gardens,
kneaded the good wife's dough, crept
In through keyholes and whispered
sweet dreams to good children; they
brought peace to the weary, health
to the sick, and all good things to
the worthy. Until 1894, they lived
only in the imagination of our forefathers and between the covers of
fairy story books. Then Mr. Milne
gave them real flesh and blood and
presented them for the entertainment
of the public in his operetta, "The
Pixies." It was first produced in
New York City, with a cast of nearly one thousand people, and instantly sprang into such favor tbat calls
for It came from every part of the
Notices from British Columbia
cities where it has recently been given speak in terms of the highest
praise of It, hence a rare trout may

The Two Properties at Moyie Have
Best of Indication.
Word was brought down from the
Society Girl mine yesterday that
when the last round was broke there
wsb a sprinkling of oro and every
indication that the ore body has-
been reached. The work of the nest
day or two will bo anxiously awaited, for a big ore body is expected.
The tunnel is in 1,000 feet. Local
stockholders are feeling jubilant.
A man who has a varied experience
in most of the prominent mining
camps in the west, went across the
lake the other day and was shown
through the property of the Aurora
Mining & Milling Co. Aftor making
a thorough inspection of all the
workings he came away fully convinced that In a very short time
there will be another big shipping
mine to aid the famous St. Eugene
in the building up of Moyie.
The Aurora mine has over 1,500
feet of tunnel driven. The lower
tunnel is now In 350 feet, with only
300 feet yet to go, or about 30 days'
work, when they will tap tho ledge.
This is the ledge which shows such a
fine quality of ore in the upper workings.
In the upper tunnel they have in
sight about 50,000 tons of first class
milling ore. At present all that is
required is a concentrator when the
mine will at onco bo on tho list of
shippers. Not long since a carload
of ore was shipped from tbis property to the smelter at Trail to he
treated, and tho returns wore most
satisfactory to the owners.
