was caused by an open switch

"It is understood" says the Vancouver Province "that the Great
Northern railway early in the COffl*
Ing spring vvill undertake the work
of building a line from the Y. V. &
V.. railway east of the Cascade
range south through the American
Okanogan river valley to Wenatchee, Wash., on the main line, a
distance of about 1f»0 miles. The
final surveys have been approved,
anil already one-third of the right*
of-way has been acquired. The
northern junction point will be at
Oroville, a station in the state of
Washington a few miles south of
the international boundary. Owing
to engineering difficulties a portion
of the Y. Y. & E. railway extend*
ing from Laurier, B.C., in the Houndarv district lo Keremeos in the
Similkameen district makes three
or four detours into United States
"Mr. Hill's programme would indicate that lhe financial situation
has improved and that he anticipates
an early return of commercial prosperity. The proposed line "hook-
in;;' up" the Canadian and American
portions of his railway system will
cost upwards ol" two million dollars.
It vvill not only open np a rich ranching and fruit country, hut will pro-
v idc an alternative route for through
e.ist and west hound freight, thus
relieving the congestion of traffic
over the heavier grades across the
Cascade range."

of the Manitoba government that

More Local Option.
"Local option is beginning to
loom up again as an issue in this
province" aaya the Hedley Gaiette
"and there is evidence already of
the tendency of extreme advocates
of temperance to  lose  their heads
and allow their zeal to run mviiv
vvith both their judgment and their
"The greal trouble vvith most of
these temperance advocates is that
il anyone queationn the wisdom of
their methods, thai one is Immediately put down as one in league
with the saloon keepers and wholly
bad; when in many cases the truth
is the ver) opposite of such a conclusion."
No better proof, if proof is needed, of ao plain a statement Ol fact,
could be furnished than the attitude
of the IVnticlon Press, the self-
constituted champion of the cause
of local option in B.C. which, under
the misguided impression thai it is
helping the cause ol temperance,
engages in a campaign of abuse
againsl all and sundry who dare lo
express opinions al variance with
its own. With ill-mannered effrontery it characterizes its own opinions as convictions and attributes
insincerity and unworthy motives
to the   opinions   of  all   others.     It
commends  itself  for   heing  brave
enough lo   express   ils   convictions
anil,   strangest   of   all,   appears   to
glory   in   Ihe   unenviable   notoriety
which ii In creating for itself.
In a  recent  issue  the  Trumpet
look occasion lo express its views
on local option as a means of furthering the cause oi temperance.
These views weie convictions (if
out esteemed cotoiii will permit us
to use the word) formed from a
close observation of the working of
the measure in many places in Manitoba and Ontario where il had been
tried and discarded, having been
found wholly unsatisfactory. In
each such case vve concluded that
the cause of temperance had reallv
suffered, rather than benefitted.
The Press points to the  hundreds
of municipalities In eastern Canada,
whe.e local option has been given
effect, as evidence of the success of
the measure, and justification for
tha statement thai "The Trumpet
would have us believe that we are a
race of lunatics." The proof of the
pudding is in the eating, not in Ihe
making, anil the dismal failure of
local option to achieve the end aimed at is the best proof of its unfitness. It, however, is not the only
measure vvith   which   municipalities
have burdened their books of bylaws to be discarded later. The
Trumpet cast no reflection upon the
intelligence of our "race," but
rather, paid lhe people of Hritish
Columbia the compliment of saying
that they are in the habit of thinking and acting for themselves, independent of what the rest of the
nonunion may do.
Because we contend that prohibition should at least he provincial
in its operation, and decline to join
hands with the temperance folk in
the cause of local option the Press
says that we are insincere and wish
lo stand in with the temperance
people without offending the liquor
men. "A good soldier" it says
"uses the best weapon he can lay
his bauds on." The soldier (the
rank and file) uses the weapon vvith
which he is provided, and until
such time as the leaders of the temperance party .n supply their followers with a better weapon than
lhe local option blunderbus thev
cannot hope for victory.
We fully appreciate the evils of
the liquor traffic and are no less
anxious to see it stamped out than
is our esteemed cotem but we tail
to see in the adoption of a local
option liquor law a step towards its
accomplishment. We reiterate the
hope, expressed in our previous
article, that when the house meets
our legislators will not allow themselves to be flim-flammed into passing legislation which has been
ainptly tested and found ineffective.

"For some reason or other" says
Ihe lledlev Gazette "Penticton mail
fails to get through lo Hedley in
one day now, and   as a   result   mail
that should  reach  us on  Tuesday
night fails to turn up. If this thing
occurred once or twice only, one
would overlook it, but when it is
that way right along it is time to
make a kick to see where lhe fault
lies." Ralph QuintOn emphatically
protests thai the blame does not
rest with lhe olliee here; lhat Hedley mail is enclosed in its own sack
and goes right through without being opened. This would put it up
to the stage drivers or the office at
Hedley. Recently the Penticton
mail stage has heen delayed waiting
for the arrival of the steamer and
has been unable to deliver the mail
at Keremeos in time to connect
with the Hedley stage. But this
has been the case only since the
cold snap set in and cannot be the
irregularity which the Gazette refers lo.

Home-seekers or excursionists from the
East have a choice of routes to Keremeos. The Great Northern Railway, which taps the Prairie Provinces at numerous
points, furnishes a quick, comfortable and convenient means
of reaching the Similkameen at rates the same as to corresponding points on the C.P.R. Or excursionists may come as
far as Midway over the Crow's Nest branch ofthe C.P.R. and
the remaining 90 miles over the Great Northern.
