Noble, McNeish, W. Dainard, Conner,
Mercier, Cartwright, Macaulay, Warren. Haggen, and Capt. Bacon.
On ihe question of the adoption of
the minutes coming up for consideration, A. Macaulay said that at last
neeiiiig a resolution was adopted in
egard to re-sinking which should not
have, been introduced without notice.
It was understood that nothing of thnt
kind wee to be brought up without
notice, end the business ot which notice had been given for last meeting
was assessment work.
H. 0. Lowe contended the resolution
was against the interests of the real
prospector and in the interest of the
hotel prospector, as tho former wonld
he put to $10 or 115 expense to come in
to find the Gold Commissioner to get a
permit, whereas ths man about town
could look out for a claim falling in,
get a permit and beat the other man
out of it. He moved tbat the question
be reopened.

einbodiei in the law itself. He warned the Association against passim;

The PrssidJnt complained that he

he produced.
The Secretary defended the accuracy
of the minutes, quoting from Mr.
Aylmcr's paper and said that in the
supplementary remarks to his paper
Mr. Ayliner had auggested that a sum
might be payable by way of tax in

{Edited  by E. A. Hauc.kn.)
FRIDAY,   APRIL  8,    1S98.
While wo should be glad to soo n
railway put in band from Golden to
the Yukon In tlio north, and from Golden to tho International Boundary in
the south, believing as wo do that it is
tbo best route that baa yet benti -suggested, we must protest against t he
bill iu the form in which it is before
tbo D. C. Parliament, and wo think
mass meetings should be convened in
both Goldon and Donald to make em -
phatie protest. Wc have just seen th"
bill for the first time, and the pro-
pjsal-i are anything but businesslike
so far as tbo Province is concerned.
Wo havo workod hard to draw atteii-
ention to th.e advuntages of the Got.-
DHX EltA Air Line as tlie best and
shortest of All-Canadian routes to the
Yukon on the north, and its extension,
to connect with 'th--Great North'rn
ou tbo south would bo an effect tin I
check o:i the monopoly iinil overcharges
of the C. P. R. But whilo wo favor
these routes for railways we slniil
most emphatically oppose to tlie utmost extent in onr pe-wtnV any attempt
to monopolise tlio country in -lie way
proposed by the bill unless tbe public
interests aie efficiently' safe guarded
both by requirement of a deposit for
tho due fulfilment of the scheme proposed in tho charter, and hy limiting
the rime within which the roads hilts'
bo built to say three or four years ut
tbo outside. When this charier was
fii'gt proposed wo wrote to the applicants and stated we wished to know
whether they bona fide intended to go
on with tht scheme, We stated that
if so we should assist k!1 we could,
but if tho charter was sought for
merely speculative purposes we should
opposo it. We were assured that the
'leees-mry capital was forthcoming,
and that the work would be gone ou
With. On tbat assurance we have
supported      the        proposal. In
tbe f-.ce of that assurance,
hen, why should the applicants have
my objection to being bound down by
teposit and to reasonable time for the
.ompletion of the work. Their opposition to such provisions looks very like
.l bogus affair ; and we object, and tho
people of tho district will object to
heir public estate being locked up for
-erhaps years from al! enterprise,
dtnply that three gentlemen should
havo a monopoly on the railway enter-
prices of tho district to makn what
:hey can out of them hy cinching other
people who may bo prepared to take
tho matter up iu a spirit of integrity,
md with a view to the work being
carried out, Wo would rather sec tbo
charter rejected altogether than that
ibis should happen, and. wo believe
that in this matter we voice . the wi-
inimous sentiment of the district.
The amendements to the bill as pro*
��� losed by Mr. Sword, on behalf of tho
opposition, are eminently   reasonable.
Hera they are: ���
Nevertheless, failure to complete
&tfy 'one or more of tho said
sections, or portions of any section.
within the time so limited for the
���om||tletio*p of tho same respectively,
shaU not prejudice tho rightu, powers
or privileges.of the Company, In ro-
-.poet of such .part or parts (if any)
>f the. sections us to which Mich
litiluro shall be tnado H�� shall, at thn
ex,,tration of such limited time, be
made nnd completed. ,
"Tho Company shall, witli in six
nonihs after the passage of this Act,
'leposi; with thn Provincial Government/the sum of if*,000. either in cash
or approved bonus, as security that
tbe company will expend not less than
$10,000 in surveys or construction of
the railway hereby authorised to be
built, before tbe 30tb June, 181W, and
in default of such expenditure the
aforessid sum of $5,000 shall be forfeited to aud become the property of
the Government, as liquidated and
ascertained damages, and not as a
penalty ; and should such security not
be depo-ited with the Government
wit hid the aforesaid time, all the
rights and privileges conferred by
this. Act shall be null and void."
If the charter Is asked fur asalegeti
mate enterprise and not as a means of
swindling tho public by locking up
tho country and stealing the public
estate, then tbe promoters can find
no reason on earth for refusing the
amendments as propoesd, aud any ro
fusul ou their part ought to justify
Purliinetit in rejecting the charter
without any further hesitation.
Last session tiio Dominion Government promised that if iho people of the
Columbia Valley would wait until
this year a vote would bo placed on
the estimates for building a telegraph
lino from Golden to Port Steele. Tbe
estimates are now before us, but ihe
pVomised giant has not been made,
and wo have drawn the attention of
Mr, Bostock", M. P. to theomi.-sion, iii
the hopR that it may be rectilied.

Under the above bending the Mon
tr?ul S'ar says : ���" A clerical gold
seeker who oncp held hitili rank in the
Church of England i; the North* Went
Terrltoriesi and was until lately Rector
of DonaW and Golden, B, C, is now
working bis own placer'gold claims in
the Yukon with pick and shovel, some
what to the dismay of former clerical
confreres, who don't altogether relish
tht. complete change frem u religious to
a purely secular occupation.
The cleric in question is, the Ven
Archdeacon McKay, a man of stout
physique and about fifty years of age.
The Archdeacon describes the bard
ships of tho Yukon as really terrible,
hut means to hold on. as lie thinks ho
is prospecting good claims."
In.reference to the abovo we have to
say that these remarks regarding the
Ven. Archdeacon McKay are utterly
uncalled for. Tbe rev. gentleman is a
man in every sense of tbo word. He
works his claims during the week and
conducts religions services on Sundays,
ami he has just as much right to what
ho earns by the sweat of his brow in
the Yukon aa anybody else.
Cupid breaks his bow at the sight of
a face full of pimples. Hollow cheeks,

did not get it and had to come to Fort

driven so desperate that any crime
would have been committed if tha
spark had only been kindled. Gold
Sinks to nothing in the face of starvation. Men have gold In sacks but uo
food. I have soon thousands of dollars
in gold lying around as nothing almost. Money is of no value when it

mines are very rich but it takes both
money and hard work to develop thein."

ahead'of'all others in rcg.irl.to scope,
vagueness and cupidity.
The scope cf the scheme i�� most comprehensive inasmuch as it provides for
tbo oowor to constrnot over, it is a lid,
.'1,009 miles of railway. This is divided into six sections: two run from
Holde'i. southwards by tho Columbia
and Kootonay valleys to the boundary
lino j four extend in a nor'horly direo-
' tion from Golden to tho northern
���.,   boundary of the Province.
The vagueness of the scheme is
shown by tlio way the fourth, fifth and
sixth sections aro set forth. Prom
Fort McLeod, on McLeod lake, the company can select any route tlley | lease
so long as they hit the Liard river
anywhere west of the 124th degree of
longitude, and when that point is
reached they ask for the right of going
up or down that river to the northern
boundary, or, in lieu of that, westerly
to "some point at or nearTesliii lake"!
Section 48 of the bill deals with the
tinje to he allowed for the construction
of this group of railways ; this extends
from three to ten years, hut is so worded as to really mean ten vears through
out. It is i his section thut is so mischievous and what the Opposition
members are so manfully combatting
in the Legislature today.
It will be seon on referring to any
good map of the Province that the
proposed lines of railway traverse probably the richest uiinerul bearing
districts of British Columbia, and the
object the promoters of this Bohenie
have in view is to secure absolute control of nn extensive and valuable area
of the Province, while effectually shutting out all parties who mav hereafter
bring forward bona tide plans for railway construction in those districts.
There is no provision made iu tbe
bill for any forfeiture for failure lo
commence construction within tbe
times mentioned in connection with
each leition; there is no-guarantee of
any kind whatsoever, ns tho bill
stands, that construction will be begun
on any portion of the line even within
the full limit of 10 years, much less
that tho system should be completed
within the period.
The Opposition pointed this out and
have insisted on tlio introduction into
tlio bill of u section whereby some
forfeitures will be imposed, and Mr.
Sword introd'icod a motion with this
Mr. Hunter, the manipulator of the
bill for the promoters, is fighting
against any interference with the wording of the bill. This, of conrs.', is to
bo expected from such a quarter. What
else could be looked for from tbe henchman of, perhaps, tho largest monopoly
in the Province? He has been trained
iu a good school for such work. His
long ussociaiion with the Duusinuirs
and witli the Hon, J. H. Turner and
the ditto C. E. Pooley, promoters aud
directors of certain speculative companies, with tlio Hon. James
Baker, tbe successful steerer of the B.
C. Southern steal; with tho Hon. D.
Al. Eberis, champion of the Nelson &
Fort Sheppord railway scheme and
��� he attendant liiudgrab, lias eminently
fitted him for the position of booster
of a scheme that is in plain words an
attempt to foist upon the people of
British Columbia another rapacious
Can anyone affirm with truth and
honesty that the promoters intend going ahead ut once with this work for
which Ibey seek a charter? . Is it not
evident ou the facs of.it that the intention is simply to get a cinch on
that portion of tlio country by forestalling all enterprises for its development which may in perfect good faith
bo mado hereafter ?. This is proved by
the unwillingness of the promoters to
agree to the introduction of any clause
insisting on a forfeiture in case of non-
nomlpetion within a definite time limit.
.Mr. Hunter state l-in the House that he
was not prepared to amend section 48.
If the people for whom Mr, Hunter is
act ing bad been actuated in asking for a
charter, by a spirt of bona fides, they
would not have refused to liaveeitliera
definite time limit or a cash forfeiture.
But they did refuse as Mr. Hunter's
action showed, and the only   inference

We are informed that a paragraph
in last issue in reference 'o ihe prospective candidate, for the Provincial
eluotions waa misuuderstoo I. We are
asked to make it more clear, The
object of the paragraph was lo
point out the necessity of a convention
of the Opposition party as a whole
with view to joining iu selecting and
supporting one candidate to represent
the parry at the forthcoming election.
We did not mean to insinuate that
there was any split in the party itself
beyond the fact thnt members of it had
thoir favorites, and were likely to
have, until delegates representing the
opposition party as a whole could meet
in convention to discuss the matter. It
is now proposed to call such a con*
vention and no doubt this course will
have the effect of bringing the opponents of the Turner Poolev crowd into
line, and securing a block vote for
whatever candidate the convention
may deem the best mm to put up to
represent the opposition party as a
