McBride Railway Policy Is Explained
by the Premier, Hon. W. J.
Bowser and Thos. Caven.
A large and Intelligent number of
tho electorate of Crunbrook: turned
out on Saturday night last to hear
the premier and attorney general
Bowser. The auditorium waa crowded
with a considerable number ol Indies
present. Tho premier's remarks wero
received with applause, and were explicit In detail, especially ills railway
policy. Mr. Bowser plainly stated
the poHitioti ot tho province, stating
that it would not cost the province
one dollar, in Its agreement with the
Canadian Northern, and that the province had (our million dollars deposited ln the Bank of Commerce at Alc-

province to ontlnrno the proposition I

' "Ladles and gentlemen when I
launched for tho benefit ol this country the Canadian Northern railway
policy as well as that which will
tend to the development of the Okvtn-
agiiii, the completion ol the Kettle
Valley line. There Is no siiggostion
ln my program with regard to the
high standard and splendid position
which the C.P.R. today occupies as
one ot the greatest transportation
corporations In the world. Tho Canadian Pacific railway is an Institution which is the pride of every Canadian and as we travel here and
there In the states and abroad, we
can always turn with tremendous satisfaction to the (act that we Canadians have ln that line under our own
flag one of the most magnificent
transportation systems in the world.
But you must remember that lino was
paid for ln land and coin by every
breadwinner in Canada in very great
proportion. What with Its very large
and generous land grants and Its
most lavish monetary aid from tho
treasury of Canada there can be no
Question but that a vory large proportion ol the tremendous assets
which are now controlled by the C.

It Is stated officially that by thc

This will include the station around
tho north ol Lako Superior as well
as the British Columbia section,
which will bo started both at Edmonton and on the Pacific the wook following tho ratification by tho voters

covered on all sides, and when the
wealth of our mountains, of our wonderful timber resources, ol our fruit
landa, of our rivers and streams, us
well as the productiveness 0f the
prairie country to the east ol the
mountains, makes such a program ol
attraction as to make It absolutely
neccssury In thu public lutercst that
we have another transcontinental
railway, another Canadian lliitt ut
our doors to bring In the people who
ll0ck to our borders. And that Is
the reason, ladles and gentlemen, why
I am hero tonight to pledge myself
to thc people ol British Columbia
that lu so far us I am concerned in
the politics of this country you shall
havo that lino or I shall retire from
public life.     (Applause.)
"1 want no half measure in the
promises I propose to make to thc
Pooplo of British Columbia, I am
ready and willing at once t.„ take mv
place with the voters of this country

British Columbia must help mc and
as far aa the great honor and dignity
Is concerned which attaches to the
oflice 1 have held now upwards of
sevon years, with the belief I have
and tho conscience I propose to es

that rathor than stay In olilce In British Columbia and do nothing to glvo
tlio people competitive railways 0»
some wholesome lines, I propose to
step down and out altogether from
political life ln this country. 1 anticipate criticism but I am ready and
willing to meet It. I have never been
afraid of tho peoplo of British Columbia I have always bocn ready and
wl.llng to take them into my confidence, whether the people may have
been made up of tlie Working classes
or from the business men or from the
capitalistic class, has made no difference to me. I have never stood for
any section. I havo always stood for
all.   "Applause.)
"Now, In approaching the railway
situation, tho first question you will
ask is who are the people with whom
the province of British Columbia
deals ? My answer is, the Canadian
Northern railway company, which today is operating thousands of miles
of line ln Canada undor the direction
ot William Mackenzie and D. D. Mann.
I can recall myself some seven or
eight years ago when some of the
other railway men in Canada looked
upon the Canadian Northern as a
kind of Joke, and we can all recall
the tremendous condemnation which
was hurled at Mr. Roblln in 1901
when he proposed on behalf of the
people of Manitoba to assist Mackenzie & Mann in the exploitation of
the Canadian Northern system ln
that province. What was a joke, in
the words of some in 1901, has today
assumed tho proportions of a groat.
and wealthy railway corporation with
splendid arterial and branch lines,
doing a tremendous service for millions of Canadians and giving the
promise of doing a still more mugni-
tlcent sorvico for those people as soon
as they may be able to reach thc Pacific coast and the Atlantic seaboard.
I remember seven years ago in the
legislature of British Columbia when
I led the opposition party in the
house, approaches were made by the
Canadian Northern for subventions in
order to extend their linos to the
coast. The longest session of parliament known in the history of the
province was then held when 14 of
my colleagues and myself, for four
months, withstood the efforts of thc
government to pass a bill ln aid ol
the Canadian Northern. The fight
was bitter ; Mr. Mann knew ns well
as did his colleagues how great, was
the effort of the opposition puity to
stay the hand of the government lu
their eflort to give this corporation
a largo subvention.
Fancy what was proposed seven
years ago to lie given in aid of Mackenzie ami Mann to induce them to
bring the Canadian Northern to the
PaclBo coast: A subsidy of 20,000
acres of land per mile ami a cash
bonus of I500O per milo together with
taxation for ton years. Almost an
emplro In citent wns proposed to bo
bargained away by the parliament of
British Columbia to bring tin, Canadian Northern railway to this province. I say 1 fought the Canadian
Northern then for lour months with
all my might, as a mutter of fact on
one occasion taking up thc time of
the house for upwards of ten hours.
when the government, having caught
the opposition unawares, were on
dettvoring to force some measure
which might hnve had nn Important
effect on the Canadian Northern proposal. I fought seven years ago
tooth and null tho effort nf the Can
adian Northern to come hero on those
terms because I considered the poltcy
was not sound and not ln the Interests of the people of British Columbia. I said then and I say now thnt
the time has gone by when auy government iu this country enn Indulge
in a policy of land subventions to
railways. We should have our railways here, as they have been secured
In other seetlons In those latter years
without tbe cost of a single aero of
land. But by way of contrast compare tho subvention proposals of 1901
with what Is now proposed to be given. Twenty thousand acres of land
per mile, worth toduy at government
rates 150,00(1, cvory acre is worth
12.60, plus (6000 ln cash, making a
free gift In 1902 of 156,000 per mile,
and you know these railway corporations have a weakness of taking
everything we will give them, that Is
a habit thoy havo. I remember saying in the house that It the Canadian
Northern railway secured a subvention in land of that size and extent
the next thing we shall see in the
hinterland in tho Interior of British
Columbia would bo fences on ourli
sldo or a tremendous territory with
the sign to the prospectors and path-
llndern 'Please keep oft the grass thin
belongs to lite Canndiun Northern
"Thoy did not got It, Indies and
gentlemen. Wo held the house 101
dnys and I Bay that even If that were
the only thing those 16 men had accomplished in the political history of
this country, that accomplishment is
worthy to live forever in tho annals
and records of this province But now
we are getting the Canadian Northern
we are getting it with douhlo the
mileage thoy had then and wc ure
getting it without thc cost of one
acre of land.   (Applause.)   The   only
privilege which thoy shall et*joy is
one which by tlie legislation ot this
country is common to every railway
company, that is, exemption from
taxation for ten years. Wc have now
a bill in our statutes which provides
that, railway corporations when llrst
building limy lie exempted for that
period und the only privilege which
this company will enjoy is that exemption.
"Now, I havo    answered the    llrst
question that    my     negotiations are
with a reputable  company.   If their
mileage nnd business in eastern Can-
la were    not    sulllclent evidence to
my exacting critics bclore me tonight
whut shall he say lu answer to    my
statements when I tell him thut  tho
Canadian Northern   comes to British
Columbia     with     a recommendation
from all tho provincial    governments
of Canada and from Mir Wilfrid Luurier himself.   Also,     they   como to us
with the    endorsement    of my friend
Mr. Geo. Murrny, prime minister    ol
Nova Scotia, nnd a very intense grit
lie Is, too, and us woll with that    of
Mr. Rutherford     and Mr. Scott, two
more liberals, apart altogether from
the heroic part that hns been played
by the people of Manitoba in the extension    ol     the Canadian Northern
system under     tho leadership of Mr.
It,,Iiiin.   Now   the  railway     company
with nil their    mileage and the reputation they enjoy and stamped     anil
backed by the lending public men   of
Canada should certainly have    somo
consideration In the councils of    tho
local     government     ol this province
when it is Heeklug to provide    more
railway transportation for     British
Columbia.   And so It Is that we now
place before the  people of tbis country a proposal that will make tor the
extension of the system to Vancouver
and  Vlctorln and Barclay Sound   in
four years time and    that will make
in the same    period for the development ot a tremendous    extent of ten
ritory contiguous to tho line as well
us tremendous development in parts
of British    Columbia now served by
the C.P.R.
"Now   for    this Hne of road it is
proposed thut tho government of British Columbia should guarantee   the
company's bonds to tho   extent     of
135,000 a mile,     4 per cent. 30 year
bonds, which would make an obligation of 121,000,000 against the people
of Urltish     Columbia.    But   against
this endorsement whut do we receive)
Wo receive u flrst     mortgage on the
line from Yellowhend to Barclay 8d.
A llrst  mortgage   Wo     come before
anything else.   In addition we receive
a covenant ot tho     whole and entire
Canadian  Northern system to     save
this province harmless    from any responsibility by reason of this endorsement.   A     gentleman connected with
one of the ruilway companies said to
me the other day : 'What is tho good
of the Canadian     Northern     bonds ;
their line is mortgaged ull tho     way
through?'   Well, so is every line    on
the continent mortgaged, but I    am
given to    understand   that thc Hied
charges against the Canadian Northern line are probably     less per mile
than any other transcontinental system, and iu udditioil to the tremendous system thoy are operating,     the
Canadian Northern Is entitled at this
time to at  least  $19,000,000 of equities tn their lands which still remain
unsold, und for payment accruing   on
lands sold in connection with    their
land subsidy from the Dominion government   In   the northwest provinces.
So that when you consider that   our
endorsement   Is cared for by a   first
mortguge on the line, plus the covenant of the company,   I do not think
there uoed be tho slightest fear     on
tho part of the most timid taxpayer
In British Columbia that he will ever
have to pay a penny towards the construction   and    continuance     of this
The Canadian Northern railway,
tho people's line in this country, will
bo able to carry on their trains from
tidewater on the coast into tho northwest territories nil their freights over
5-10 of 1 per cent, grado. I had the
good fortune to meet, for the llrst
time, the other evening, tlie chlof en
glnoer ol the Canadian Northern, at
old C.P.R. surveyor, who explained
to me that by reason of the udvancv
In the science of railway construction
that has taken place in the last 25
years the question of grades and
curves is now the all Important con
siderhtion, and that while it might
not Imve been the chief studies ol tbo
engineers when the C.P.R. was built
to secure tho assist possible grades
through the canyons, today it was
all Important and he was iu a posl
tlon to say that tho Canadian Northern system has secured a grndo ol
5-10 of 1 per cent, from tide water to
the wheat Ileitis. Now while we give
our endorsement for tho purpose of
securing tho beueflt which must come
from the construction of the Cana
dlan Northern there are obligations
assumed by that system. First tho
company will be obliged to deposit a
bond of at least *r>00,000 with the
province as security of good' faith In
the undertaking. Next, and by no
menus to put second place, the company will ho obliged to build every
Inch of tho Hue with white labor ; no
Asiatics will lie employed, d'kilong-
eil applause, i
There shall not be a single Asiatic
employed ou tho construction of that
line ln Ilritish Columbia.
"Next the company will be obliged
to pay the workmen tho standard
scale of wages for similar work.
There will be no scabs on tho Canadian Northern. Next the company
will be obliged to serve the people of
British Columbia nt fair and moderate rates. There Is a dominion act
which provides for a railway commission, an official body which has had
the endorsement of the conservative
party In the parliament of Canada.
If, however, wo can go one bettor by
securing control of rates for this province, ns it Is proposed to do, It is
our intention to go to that extent,
so that right here in Hritish Columbia we might huvo a right, to say
what is a Inif price to charge us for
carrying our products and what Is a
prohibitive one. Surely thnt Is a
great consideration. Next, every dollar which the company secures from
tin, sale of these bonds which we endorse will be paid Into tho provincial
treuBttry and not one cent ol that
money will be paid out till there in
evidence, under the cortlftcatu ot our
own engineer, that the work has been
done nnd the money earned. (Applause.) Now, with these securities
to which 1 have Just referred', with
all the cure uud caution that must Ik,
exercised on tho part or the government in the preparation ot the final
agreement and the bill for parliament
surely nothing is lelt undone by the
administration to protect the interests of this our province.
"After     ten     years the whole road
will be taxed. At the present time
our rate ot taxation is 190 a mile.
You will remember how some six
years ago we had to raise the limit
on tho railways, and the C.P.R. particularly, and they certainly squealed
a little but they seem to have thriven und grown fat and healthy notwithstanding. Thc taxes have been
coming in nicely und tho company
has been building moro lines than
over. It seems to me it does them
good to give them u little Jolt ot
taxation once und a while, It seems
to make them busy and thrifty. However, us I say, after tea years we
will be able to collect 190 a mile lor
the whole 260 miles, which will be
something like 123,400. So for the
flrst ten years we are out ot pocket
(9000 u year and after that not a
cont, but at tbe end of 40 years our
children will have to scrape up 1750,-
000 aad surely they will be able to
do it. Meanwhile you will enjoy railway connection with Vancouver aud
all this woudertul country und the
Simllkameen and the Boundary will
hu glvon a chance to develop aud
grow und become strong, a chance
that can only be given to them by
sotno means of railway communicu-
tiou and I am siulte satisfied that as
the Kettle Valley lines extend their
operations through that part of the
province you will see my friend Mr.
Hill getting busy too with the V.V.
& E., so that witb these things 1
have Just referred    to and the exten
ported ln a    press dispatch, printed |
ln the Manitoba     Free Press of Oct.
21 as follows :
"Sir Charles relerring to the scare-
ity of labor to build thc O.T.P., suid I
he had endeavored to impress premier
McBrldo of British Columbia with
the necessity ot the employment of
Asiatic labor and confessed that he
failed to make any impression on
Mr. McBride on tbat point.
'"He was convinced thnt no gov
ornment could be brought to see the
necessity of the Introduction of Asiatic labor. Sir Charles had seen no
English navvies but thought that Uie
building the O.T.P. was their opportunity and he suggested that the British and Canadian governments take
up the question of supplying labor.'
"He wants to shun the provincial
government altogether, but Mr. Bowser tonight will show that they cannot. We have them ttuder an agreement and be will tell you the story.
"I close then with the reaffirmation
of the stand of the government on
tho question of better terms and the
protection of white labor and the exclusion from our shores of Asiatics,
and I now* leave the case of the government in the hanus of the peopie ot
Cranbrook and tho people of British
Columbia, with every confidence in
their good Judgment and ability to
do what is right. They have hud tho

"Now, ladles and gentlemen, It will

whether these things shall he so. For
my part, I repeat again that I am
firmly pledged to tho people of this
country that falling the construction
of the Kettle Valley and Canadian
Northern lines there will be but one
course open to me and that Is to retire from political life. I do not feet
tbat any man in Justice to the people
could remain in offices unless he pro
poses to spare no eflort to get com
petltive railways for this province,
so that this part of Canada, ln line
with Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba may enjoy that measure of development thut certainly Is Its right.
"Before I tako my seat I would
like to say a word or two about the
proposals of the government with regard to the timber laws of the country. I took occasion last night in
Revelstoke to make the statement
that it is the intention of the govern
ment at the next sitting of the house
to extend the tenure of special timber
licenses so that they may be held in
perpetuity or until the removal of
the timber. (Applause.) When the
government of the day some years
ago extended tho term of the licenses
from one year to 21 years we wero
Informed by timber cruisers and the
men and companies Interested ln timber that this extension of time would
glva them a property that thoy could
tako to their bankers and upon which
they might raise funds for the purpose of developing tho timber industry of tne country. On the strength
of these statements the government
of the day extended tbe tenure of tho
licenses. We have learned lately after
the adoption of this principlo that
despite the fact that tbe licenses continue 21 years the bankers do not
look on them as security at all and
that as a matter of fact they have
no better standing, are considered as
having no greater degree of security
than if the period had remained at
one year. There was then but one
course open to the government 11 it
proposed to give effect to tho principle already enunciated in the legislation of the country four years ago,
and that was to make the tenure of
the license longer, so that tho licensee may hold tho land in perpetuity
or until the timber Is removed, and I
propose, If the government Is returned to power, that legislation shall be
introduced nt thc next session extending the tenure on such terms and conditions as may bo deemed reasonable
and fair by the parliament.
"One word more, I propose to press
on the right of the province to demand that British Columbia shall be
kept for Canadians, lor Britishers,
for white people. (Applause.) My
good friend, tbo attorney general will
deal with the Asiatic question ln a
moment. I propose ln closing my
address to ask you to take one authority as complete and entire evidence
of the good faith shown by this government to the peoplo of British Columbia in the efforts of the province
to keep tho Asiatics from our shores,
to protect the white laborer and to
say that an honest day's wages goes
for an honest day's labor. Here Is
what Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson, who
was until a few weeks ago president
of the Grand Trunk railway, said
