BEYOND   DESCRIPTION.
David B. Bogle, writing iu the Engineering Magazine, says: " It Is beyond
the limit of any merely human descriptive powers to do justice to the timber
wealth of the Pacific coast. It has heen
Calculated with reference lo British Columbia alone that at the present rate of
Consumption it would lake 70(1 years*To
exhaust the more available supplies of
timber; and us, under the husbandry of
nature, forests will renew themselves in
less time than 700 years, the calculation
is merely a way of ludlcatlng that the
timber resources of Ihe Pacific coast are
practically Inexhaustible. It is not _oo
much to say, then, that for all trade and
commerce into which wood and the
products of wood enter, and for all manufactures in which wood and the products of wood are consumed, the Pacific
coast possesses resources incalculably
greater than any other portion of the
Slobe, civilized or uncivilized. As regards the products of the mine, the territory under consideration already produces no inconsiderable proportion of
the world's annual supply of gold, silver,
copper and lend. It. is besides infinitely
ricli in iron, coal and petroleum, of
which its stores are hardly yet comprehended, much less utilized. And
what is known of all its mineral resources is as nothing iu comparison with
what is not known.

SATURDAY, MARCH 10. 1901.
A letteh has been received from A.
Thompson of Kamloops for publication,
calling upon workingmen to rise in their
might and slay their enemies���the legislators. The letter refers particularly to
the proposed increase of the provincial
tax from $3 to $5, The communication
arrived too late for publication in last
issue, and as the legislature will have
taken action in the matter before the
paper is issued this week, tlie publication of tlie letter, though containing
many truths regarding legislators, would
do no good. When so many corporations, having continental interests at
stake, are lighting for special legislation,
it would be almost impossible to elect a
representative who could not be purchased by them,    Companies hacked by
tlie Great Northern and Canadian Pacific
railways are now asking the provincial
legislature for charters granting exclusive rights to build a railway from
Boundary through the rich mining and
agriculturan districts west to tlie coast.
The final result as to which company
will he successful is a matter of dollars.
The Great Northern was able to carry
a resolution at the meeting of tlie Associated hoards of trade which, if concurred in by a majority of the legislature, would make the whole mining
region of Southern Britisli Columbia
tributary to the Hill system. When
this can be done with representative
business men, a majority of whom are
British subjects, it is not unreasonable
to presume that if the C. 1'. B. really
want a charter that they will go to as
great lengths in their endeavors to convince members of the legislature as tlie
Great Northern Railway company and
tlie Crow's Nest Coal company did witli
some of the delegates to the meeting of
the associated hoards of trade.
CHARTERS WANTED.
The follow ing are tlie railway charters
jeing applied for at the present session
of the legislature:
An act to incorporate the Chilcat and
Klahini Bailway and  Navigation com-
An act to incorporate the  Lake  Ben
nett railway.
An act to incorporate the Midway
and Vernon Bailway company.
An act to amend the Columbia and
Western Bailway company act, 189(i.
An act to incorporate the Imperial
Pacific Railway company.
An act to incorporate the Queen
Charlotte Islands railway.
An   act to incorporate   the  Victoria
Terminal Railway and  Kerry company.
An  act to  incorporate  tlie  Ceawford
Bay Bailway company.
An act to incorporate the Coast-Koote-
nay Railway Company, limited.
I    An act to incorporate tlie Comox and
! Cape Scott Railway company.
An act to amend  the  Arrowhead and
j Kootenay   Bailway Company Act, 1898.
An   act   to   incorporate   tlie   Crow's
Nest Southern Railway company.
Out of tlie twelve companies applying
for charters it is not probable that more
j than  three  intend  to construct, equip
; and operate a  railway, neither is it at
, all   probable  that  they  could  grade a
I mile of road with  the  capital invested.
They are simply applying for charters
to hold for  speculative  purposes  in tlie
hope that, some legitimate railway company will be forced  to buy their rights.

building it, and the consequences in
building it vrtsre thoroughly understood,
would prevent any sane person from
repeating the same blunder with regard
to the opening of railways of the more
westerly portion of Southern British
Columbia. That piece of road is known
ns the Nakusp and Slocan railroad. At
the lime it was constructed criticism
was mainly directed against the manner
in which the provincial credit was used
in connection with it, not against the
object with which it was constructed
and its supposed effects upon the development of the country.
It is needless to go back upon that
ground of criticism, because it is un-
deubtedly the fact admitted by everyone that the provincial credit must be
used in some way to assist necessary
railways. It has been abundantly proven
by the events of the past few years that
development railways will not and cannot be built without liberal assistance
from the public purse; and also that
money so spent is wisely spent if spent
in the right direction, but if spent in
the wrong direction reacts with terrible
force upon the provincial credit. The
Nakusp and Slocan railway was an attempt in the interests of home development to make the Slocan country tributary to the main line of the Canadian
Pacific railway. It was built for no
other purpose; it could have been built,
debouching as it does upon an inaccessible point on Arrow lake, for no other
purpose. It entirely failed in materially
aiding the development of the country,
although it succeeded to a certain extent in taking a certain amount of the
business of the country to the main line
of the Canadian Pacific railway. The
Nakusp and Slocan railway, if it did
anything, gave transportation facilities
to the district around Slocan lake. Yet
in spite of that, mining on Slocan lake
remained' conspicuously small until a
connection was made via the Slocan
river with the main east and west system of the Crow's Nest railway, since
which time it has manifested a steady
growth. The Nakusp and Slocan railway haB never carried more than a third
of the tonnage of the Slocan country
and much less than a third from competitive points. As a development railway it was and is a complete and dismal failure. As a matter of fact the
mining districts of Southern British Columbia have never responded to the provisions of transportation connections
with the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway, for the good and sufficient
reason that such fecilities gave these
districts no economic advantage in the
mining, shipping or home treatment of
their ore.
The first great advance made by mining in British Columbia was caused by
the completion of tho Nelson and Fort
Sheppard railway, which gave facilities
for foreign shipment. Prior to that the
building of the Columbia and Kootenay
railway had no stimulating effect although it provided communication with
the main line of the Canadian Pacific
railway.
The second great advance made by
mining in British Columbia was caused
by the completion of the Crow's Nest
Pass railway, which gave facilities for
home treatment of the ore mined. Since
the active opeiation of that system the
output of mineral from the province has
quadrupled.
The thir��l great advance which will
be made by mining in the Province of
British Columbia will bo by the completion of that system from Midway tu
the Pacific coast which will consolidate
British Columbia in one industrial
whole, and, by opening the ports of the
pacific, open the markets of the world
to the mineral wealth of the interior of*
our country Observe that this is an entirely different question from whether
southern connections, giving facilities
for foreign shipments of raw material,
should be prevented or not. It is also
an entirely different question from
whether it will benefit the main line of
the Canadian Pacific railway to provide
feeders from the south. It is a question
between the government and the country
and the development of the country.
In its development there are three main
phases:
1. The provision of foreign shipping
facilities.
2. The provision of home treatment
facilities.
It. The industrial consolidation of the
country by the opening to it of the
Pacific coast ports to the markets of the
world.
The completion of the last of these
will make British Columbia a great and
united country. Too much cannot be
done by the government to bring about
its completion. The country needs action and it needs prompt action unless
British Columbia is to be in continual
bondage to the industrial combinations
of the United States. Our mines need
the market of the world and that we
can only get by the completion of a
railway  system   from  .Midway to tide
water on the Pacific ocean.
A railway connecting the Boundary
and Similkameen countries with the
main line of the Canadian Pacific railway will not answer the purpose, any
more than the Columbia and Kootenay
railway and the Nakusp and Slocan
railway answered the purpose in West
Kootenay. Such a railway could not
compete for a moment in stimulating
the development of the country with
railways built by the Kettle river and
other valleys to the south. But build a
railway to tide water on the Pacific
ocean and watch how quickly the country will be developed and how northern
and southern connections will become
mere accessories to its internal industrial growth. It would only take some
twenty or thirty miles of railway to connect the rich Lardeau with the C. P. R.
system at Revelstoke. Yet that connection has not been made, whereas
effort has been devoted to connect the
Lardeau country with Kootenay lake.
Why? Because comparatively speaking
the Revelstoke connection is economically valueless. It will be the same
with a northern connection farther west
which might indeed in the absence of
other railway facilities be valuable to
the railway company, but would not
effect the development results accruing
from the completion of an east and west
system to the pacific coast. As whatever is done must be done to a large extent by aid of the provincial credit it
behooves those who hold the provincial
purse strings to see that where assistance is given it will do some good to the
country and is not applied as in the
case of the Nakusp and Slocan railway

Although the Crow's Nest Southern
railway hill has not yet been taken up
by the railway committee, speculation is
rife as to the fate nf the bill. Robert
Jaffray, one of the promoters of the bill,
has been in Victoria nearly all week, together with E. G. S. Lindsay, the well
known lawyer of Toronto, looking
sharply after the interests of the bill,
although they do not admit that this is
the main or primary reason for their
presence there. Jaffray has had numerous interviews with members of the
executive and although he does not disclose the result, fully, admits that his
reception while courteous was not such
as to warrant much hope that his proposition will be indorsed.
It is well known that since the new
freight arrangement was entered into
whereby all freight for Victoria is landed hy Dunsmuir's ferry and over the
rails of the E, A N., that the premier
has been more friendly than ever with
theC. I'. R and not disposed to ally
himself with any movement levelled
against them.
It it quite possible that the bill will
not be allowed to get through committee. Many ef the opposition are, of
course, ardent supporters of the bill,
although it will he interesting to see
what stand will he taken by Messrs.
Martin and Mclnnes. both of whom are
on record as condemning the Cox-.Iaf-
fray deal originally, as well as being anti-
C. 1'. R. Whatever course is decided
upon by the government will, of course,
prevail, but the matter has certainly not
heen ns yet before those lo th" ritrlit of
