To lhe Editor- of the Fernie Ledger—
Dear t>ii',—in an editorial aiiieio in,
last Saliuclay's Cianbrook, Prospector
there ' is u prolisscd ipiotaliou ■ Irom
the Dominion subsidy, act" of the, session of "4-03, which is ."a thing' of
shreds and patches.,'.'- "j
• Something . over a year ago when
lhe Prospeeior was published in Fort
Steele the same act was ijuolcU from
correctly, for then, there was no object lo be served by a misquotation.
Perm it me in lhe . interest of lair
play and lionesl journalism to supply
lhe omitted words, which" should appear between the words "international boundaiy," and "not exceeding,'-
Tliey are "Via Windermere and ■ Fort
Steele, and crossing the Crow's Nest
railway at or near Elko.-.        ''
The 'Prospector scribe 'has brought
together into one paragraph various
portions ol the aci which for the sake
oImIs easy. understanding is a perfect
ly justifiable proceeding,, but.' there
cun bo no justilicalioii whatever for
'the omission of, words essential , to
lhc correct conveyance of the intention of parliament. Such dishonesty,
ought to disgust even. the. most rabid
of ihose.scllish agitators who are now
seeking "to - previ nt „ the construction
ol the K. C. It. over'its natural and
chartered route.   '.,    - -.'>"'  -■
