• LOOKING BACKWARDS
V The attention of readers'oi the l'.ed-
ger is called to an article on the next
page of this issue which ton tains    a
"■■ portion of tta. annual report of the
directors of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Company ' to the" shareholders,
submitted to them on the, 9th of February, 1906, •■<, ",-
This report- summarizes tlie operations of the company for the year
1909, and contains much that shc-uld
. r* most carefully studied, hy c ery
Wotliiiijr mini, *b ,w«>l| n<s by evi-ry
consumer of eoal or coles in 'his
country. Studied in the light of the
knowledge which has,been shed upon
- the coal production and it« distribution, this report is of very, great value'to the public, as well'as to the
wen who every day delve, into thi
bowels of the mountains tb'br.ng
forth this great necessity of life.
;'It will be seen by a-careful study
of the figures fnniiabtd by the of-
, (leers of the company, that in round
iiamliers the profit to the shareholders'
for.tho year 1905 was $500,00.   . '     "
This is the profit Ian oat year upon ,1 c'apnitalization of $3,500,000, or
just 30 par cent, so that it can not
be said that this,is not a profitable
business; .'•'■',. •
In this connection, It ts well to re-
murk that the land «u>imnfhsfnn<>r
of  the. Coal' Company,, when    before
, the hoard of equalization .last spring
at Vancouver, stated that only about
, 3 per cent, of this 3o per ee»t. profit
was derived from the operation of
mining coal and making coke; but
this statement was made' in an - argument, used by the commissioner ha an
effort to have'the taxation-laid upon
the unoperated    coal     lands,«!    the
,:" company reduced. 0     0

It bai b en rumored that the operators have determined to ask for a reibic

practicallv  certain that  the workmen
will auk for a su!>6tan!i.tl increase., thus

nny intelligent person can find room for
uucli conclusions after a careful peniKal
of the reporl on the next page, is hard
to'understand.     '
An industry which nlmwa a 20 per
cent, prolit foroneyeir, and wliosw own-
are and operators hold in reserve property valued'by trie teunof millions of
dollars, for which thoy have paid nothing, should be the last 611 the list to haggle over wageb with its workmen, and

submit to a i'-:ditetio:.

We ho| & that .such will not result in «

The priuciploiii unioni.iii) must s^oimr
or later be acknowledged and respected
by all oparati>r.s; and until It has been
acknowledged and put' 10 its fullest
practical tent, the closed '.«.hop principle
{will be an element working for U10 uncertainty of (ipi-iatioii <if tbecual mines,
j. The Ledger has always maintained,
and will continue tu maintain, that the
i' t-rmaneiicy  so inueli to be de*>ireil by
perator*, wuikeif, and the (-imsumei-s
f    the     coal, -. eau     be    established
nly by thi recognition of die closed
hop princi|ile and the establishment of
ompuis'iry arbitration courts for the
(etth-ment of disputes between labor as
represented  by combined organization
and capital upon the same basis.   In
this' wayi and' only' iu this  way,'can
Hlie»e disputes be confined to tlio two
Eides to them, so that an arbitration
court can successfully deal with them.
The coht of living to the miner is constantly on th • increase, and when the

The timber liinds of the eastern part
of Britisb Columbia whicli has upon an
average   not   more   than 7,500 feet of
liieichaiiiable timber per acre whicli at
market value could nut hring; more than
$2 per thousand bringing: the value upi
to Slo per acre, is taxed 18 cents per
acre per year,   covers no  permanent
rights  and   the,timber  wheii'cut;  is
subject   to   a   royalty, of 7,0 cent*  per
thousand.    Now  there   is  something
radically wrong al.om these conditions.
A;scboo! Uoy ean loll,.thal at 11 glance.
Either tho Ux 011 ihcse timber lands.is

O-'iitsiperpuro 011 land  w,Ii6mi owners
modes.ly-i-stiinate to be w 01 th 1S,000,000
or 150 per afe. is ridiciously low.   If
this great corporation bad been forced
to pay t large price for these coal lands
there   might   be  some' semblance  ol
justice in their denitu.ds tor reduction*-
but such is not thu l-ubd.    illc\  weio a
present tj Ihe cuuipany.   11  innjht be
urged thai as these lands do not produce
anything while thev lie idle it Mould be
a hardship to tax them heavily ^ but the
lififhter the tax the longer will lln*y' be
allowed to lie idlo, and'iho country' is
clauioiing for moid coal ail Hi'.: time
The l.t'dger hopes It M-ill  nol be con-
shjeed' pr.esuinptii)U8 if it' ventures ;lo
sui4no.->t that it soenis to it lu be in  the
public ■ interest   that    tho . provincial
government take up this inequality in
!tbe   !axa!ion   of  the coal and limber
'lauds a-ul readjust them along liueB of
'equU>   and justice.    It, might also  be
prolit able to the provincial i reasury > to
look into Ih,' cloei'il  town of Michel,
where there i* bid one hotel, owned by
the company, which owns a vast coal
area and which it is said brings to the
treasury ul that, company iii the shape
of rent more tlinu §10,000 per yea.- and
from whu-li the provincial. government
collects the paltry sum of S150 per year
licence..   It would take three or four of
the botelM.,iii Fernie to produce as much
rent as that aud still thosetbreeor four
hotels   pav   licenses  to   the extent of
$400 each por year.    The',Ledger don't
Q_uite see why this is allowed to" be.
! Certainly the provincial gbveerument
Is not deriving, an adequate  revenue
from.this   source   and it..is   because
the  town of   Michel is"mado a   closed
town by theowneisof the jjift soil upon
^vhich   it. ^tands that such a thing  is
possible—what   applies   to   the    hotel
business at  Michel applies also to till
branches of mercantile bus.inebs at that
place and at Coal Creek-    ,- .*,
1 'I here is no competition iu either,
town and the mincri- are compelled, .to
trade, at one store which ..enjoys the
"Oxclmd^ypiivilBge-of-tradiiiff-in—both;
towns. Technically this may he legal
but in reality, it is an evasion of the
truck act aud an amendment, to that
act conipelliiig tlie company owning the
ground to lease or rent sites for,coin
raorcial pur-iases to all application
etjual terms, woiild'solve this problem*
to tin: bciieiiiient of,the inbabitaots of
thoBetnwi.s and put 1 it the' provincial
treasury much more money than it is

On March 11, 1905, the wooden treble
and tipple iit C0.1l Creek, constitutiiijc
the company's whole machinery lor
handling coal at tlmt point, were completely destroyed by lire, 'llie structures were well iiieured, so that the direct lose to the company, was comparatively small,'although'our operations
were quite seriously retarded at this
point during- tho remainder of,the year.
The indirect lost, made up bv the extra
C09t of. hjiidlintf the coal, ami the consequent inability'to fill orders has been
heavy. In order to prevent such h contingency in future, your directors, ua
intimated iti their, report, have had constructed'a modern., steel tipple, trestle
and screening-plant, which will, enable
the handling; ol Coal Greek coal more
economically than ever.before
In looking over our bnlauce sheet for
the'year I lind that our statement^ u>*-
sets and liabilities is practically unchanged, and 1 will take the liberty of
reminding you auaiu, on these fixed assets are made up almost entirely of cash
investments in. plant.and development,
and that.-,the great ,bulk> of our coal
areas can hardly bo said to have any
representation among them.
In this connection, the, directors have
had under consideration.for some time
a plan for reorganization of the company, sons to bring its uorinal'capituk
more in line with the actual value tf
the company's holdings, and it. is hoped
that at ail early date a sueciaKgenural
meeting,of ihis company wil! be called,
at which will be laid before the share
holders a plan having this for its ob
ject, aud which they .will..be asked to
consider aud approve of.   ,

The, lumber combine is to be investigated by a committee of the house
of commons, ■ It is    well, but if the
committee ^ocs to the bottom; of the
matter it will find   that the-.-foinda-
tion of the whole trouble is the price
of timber, or, more accurately,    the
uiobopoly of the. timber lands.   It'a
the men who own the titnbec who are
reaping the harvest.   II the mill men
are getting rich, it is as   owners   of
timber, limits', ,aud., not -. as^operai or»

as owners of timber. Iu short, it -is
not the men who perform, the service, but the men who control the
source of production who have the
cinch. The C. P...R.>(.big!-tpk* ofi»i»
