Kootenay during the present year will
more than justify the expenditure of
the necessary capital to construct this
SATURDAY, M'C'H 13, 1897.
Tub press despatches of the past
week, if true, indicate that there is now
a probability that the question of the
construction of the Crow's Nest Pa��s
railway will be shelved for some time
to come. In certain quarters a perfect
storm of opposition has been raised
against the C. P. R. being permitted
to.have anything to do with it, and
the people at the coast are kicking
against government aid being given to
any road that does not go through to
the coast.
Then again there are a few moth-
eaten -nembeiy down east who are on
general principles opposed to anything
which might assist the western portion of Canada and they will doubtless
join forces with the other "kickers"
and between them thev may succeed in
preventing the road being built this
Any British Columbia member who
votes against aid being given on proper tortus, towards the construction of
that road, ought to be " rotton eggod "
out of the Province.
Our own Member is a warm supporter of the project but will doubtless see
to it that proper terms are imposed
upon any corporation that undertakes
the work. We understand that his
own inclination is towards Governmental construction and control, not
only of the Crow's Nest Pass road but
of all other roads.
At any rate we believe he will be
found advocating the immediate construction of the road no matter who
builds it, and tbat is precisely the way
the great majority of the people of this
couutry feel about the matter.
*   *   *
And while the enemies of the C.P.R.
are grinding op their axes getting
ready for the onslsught upon the C P.
li., the long-headed Sir William has
so dealt the cards as to have the game
pretty will in his own hands already.
He has secured an option on the B. C.
Southern charter and effects. This
means that the road will likely be
built under the name of the B. C.
Southern and the holders of that charter will retain all the grants already
mads to that company and will also
get the requisite assistance from the
Federal Government.
We have received a copy of the proposed bill to incorporate tbe East
Kootenay Railway Company. The
capital stock is placed at one million
dollars, in shares of $100 each. The
incorporators are Alfred St. George
Hammersley, Robert O. Tallow and J.
W. McFarland. The head office is to
be at Vancouver. Tho company is
asking for powers to operate telegraph
and telephone lines, to construct
wharves, docks, elevators, etc., and to
build and operate steamers for freight
and passenger business. Tho incor*
porators are now giving notice of application for a similar charter from the
Federal parliament at its next session.
We trust that tbe year 18!'8 will see
construction of this road undertaken,
We feel sure thet the development
which  will surely take place in East
It is to be hoped   that Mr. Bostock
or  some  otlier  member who has the
courage   will  at  the  present session
introduce a bill to prevent members of
the  House  of  Commons and Senate
from accepting   railway passes and at
the same time putting their hands into
tho   public   treasury   and abstracting
therefrom the mileage which they do
not  actually  pay   out    ��� _,t present
nearly   every   member   of Parliainenl
and   Senator  carries   au annual pass
over the railways.    Tho allowance for
mileage  is  supposed to cover the expense the members   are supposed to be
under  in   travelling  to and from the
sessions of the House,     But as a matter of fact theso conscientious members
and  senators  ure  under  uo expense
whatever for transportation but ut the
session   these   gentry   walk up to the
table  and   draw ou' of the Dominion
treasury largo sums  which thoy never
expend   iu   travelling but with it pay
their   board bills, etc., and as a result
have the sessional  indemnity of $1000
to take   home  with them und some ol
them we presume make large donations
to religious ami other charitable objects
out of   the moneys they have thus acquired.     They may be legully right in
accepting this mileage money but from
tbe moral point of   view those who do
it  are  no   better  than lots of  other
"good" citizens who   are serving time
for helping themselves to other peoplo's
It may be ull right for these men to
accept passes from the railways (although many hold the view that they
should not do so) but they should be
satisfied with that unil not take out ol
the treasury, moneys to which they
are not morally entitled. If thc railways see fit to carry our legislators
around tho country for nothing ull
well and good -but the country should
get the benefit of it -The general opinion seems to be that tho railway companies expect a "quid pro quo" from
most gentlemen whon railway legislation comes before the House. Iu this
connection we are proud to be able to
say that the Member for this District
has enough independence about him to
refuse a pass���He pays hia way like a
man, and if the railway companies
come to parliament asking for auy
legislation they will get his vote if
they are entitled to it, but if they
want something which in his opinion
they should not have, the vote will be
rendered the other way.
At the session held just prior to the
last general election Mr. Mulock tried
to get a bill through preventing
Members accepting passes, but it could
not be made law at the time. It is to
be hoped that at this session such a
bill will be passed through by Mr.
Mulock aud his friends.

Tclcgiiiph Lino to Fort Steele.
Mr. John Clancy of Glenoglo has
furnished us with an estimate of the
probable cost of construction of a telegraph lino between Oolden and Fort
Steele���n work that is already badly
needed, and in view of the development tnat is sure to occur in the
southern portion of East Kootenav
during this year, wo venture to predict
lhat the want of such a service will be
Keenly fejt, not only by residents of the
Port Steele district and intermediate
suctions but also by people at a distance who have business relations with
the country such a line would traverse
Mi-. Clancy's estimate is in the neigh
liorliooil of $14,000 and he makes it up
in this way:

To this must lie added the freight

tf such mline can be built for the
money it seems to us it would be a
first class investment and one that
. would cam large dividends. Tbe line
would undoubtedly be of immense
benefit 'luring the construction of the
mountain section of the Crow's Nest
I'ass li.iilwav and even after its construction would easily earn a large
divider.- on the amount invested.
It, tn ttst of course be borne iu mind
that it would be necessary to obtain a
charter from the Government authorizing the construction of such a work
on highways and other crown lands.

ter���appears in another column are
asking for powers to construct tele-

that befor 1897 expires we will be able
to exchange fraternal greetings with
our friends at Fort Steele by some
means of a "swifter" sort than at

llie London Times on East Kootenuy.
The London Times is producing a
series of articles on the mineral resource, of British Columbia. In its first
art icle���which are being wriiten by its
Colonial Editor, Miss Shaw ; who vis*
lied the mines of South Africa and
Australia and described thein so
graphically���She thus writes about
t be mining prospects of East Kootenay:
In Fust Kootenay, McMurdo. Fort
Steele, St. Mary's and the Crow's Nest
give high-grade copper ores, lead ores,
averaging 40o_. of silver and 45 per
cent ��f leail, with big ledges of low-
grade gold-bearing quartz, of which
70 per cent is free milling. The coal-
fields ol the Crow's Nest Pass are in
this District and are of vast extern.
There ure uiso streams containing alluvial gold, and at Donald where gold
lias been found associated with platinum.
It is iuto this rich mining neighborhood of British Columbia it is proposed
to carry the Crow's Nest railway,
which if constructed, will intersect the
country between the Canadian Pacific
railway and tho southern boundary
line and probably afford the means of
transport which are required for the
more successful development of some
of the mining Adds. To the north of
tlie Canadian Pacific railway line lies
a vast area partially prospected but as
yet scarcely touched, of whioh the
mineral wealth is believed to be no less
* nun that of tho more easily approached southern strip. It is to the possible
development of the whole of this immense area that Mr. Laurier no doubt
is looking when he speaks with confidence of the not distant day when
the population of Canada will number
10,000,000 instead of 5,000,000.

Bast Kootenay Iu vestments.
S. S. Bailey, one of the pioneers of
the Slocan, has made some purchases
in East Kootenay and will give his
attention to other development. The
four claims included in the deal are the
Great Northern, Argenta, Del Norte
and Fred T. Dubois. They are located
on Hell Roaring creek, a tributary of
the St. Mary's. They are silver-lead
propositions. About 81.500 worth of
development work has been done on
the Del Norte. The owners of the
claims were A. L. Jameson, L. Bow-
ker, Phil Casey and Capt. G. B. Gray,
and they parted with them for a 93b.-
000 bond. The ore is of a very fair
grade, and' with tbe building of the
Crow's Nest Pass Railway, there is no
doubt as to the value of tho mine, and
little doubt that the bond will be taken
np. A substantial cash payment is
made, which will secure an option to
July 1, 1837. All payments are to be
