THE RAILWAY' AID ACT,
In nnolher column is copied from
the Miner, a petition asking for tbe
repeal of thnt. section of the Railway
Aid Act, which Rives live per cent,
oi tne net output of minerals to certain railways. This is an objectionable feature of the law of last winter, under which however no rights
have boen yot acquired by the railways, for the reason that no plans of
tbe proposed routes have beeu filod,
and therefore no reservations set
apart by tbe Government.
Tbe importance of railroads, especially in Kootinoy and Cariboo
Districts, to their full development,
is well known aud acknowledged,
and no opposition can be 'reasonably
offered to the most liberal subsidies,
but there should be a better way to
arrive at it than by the inquisitorial
methods which must bo adopted by
tho railroads against the miners, iu
ascertaining their rights under this
law. The Stab believes that the true
way to settle tho difficulty is that
the Government febould pay directly
to the railroads, in land or money or
both, al! it sees lit to give them in
subsidies, aud to tax the miners directly���if tbey must bo further taxed
���to make it up, Tho miners will
then be dealing with a power which
is amenable to them, and they cau
onoo ia four years, if not oftener,
express their displeaaure through
the eleotiono,
vexations and expensive litigation if
its demands are not promptly agreed
to.
Therefore your petit'onera pray
that section 13 of tho "Railway Aid
Act, 1890,'' bo wholly repealed; and,
also, so much of section 8 as refers
to section 13.
Your petitioners would r.Do respectfully call your nttiution to tho
uncertainty which exists respecting
the ownership of tbo base ores fmnd
on lands, the f<"> "f wtui. u*.. i.^u��
alienated by the crown. This is a
question which may also cause much
vexatious litigation, the crown in
such cases only reserving tho right
to mine for gold or silver on, while
the mineral act grants all minerals,
precious and base (save coal,) to the
finder of a mineral claim.
Iu viowof these coullictiug clauses
in the "Crown Lauds Act" and the
"Mineril Aot," your petitioners pray
that should the abovi mentioned
grant of 2 1,000 acres per mile be acquired by any of tbe above named
railways, thut clear and special
reservations of all minerals, pneious
or base, be made in all crown grants
to land hereafter issued.

Tbat under the provisions of the
said act, the lieutenant-governor in
council shall reserve from preemption uud sale a belt of land Gl miles
iu breadth along the proposed lines
of said railways;
Tbat each of said railways aro projected through a section of the province known to bo valuable for minerals (other than coal);
That section 13 of said act gives
the lieutenant-governor in oounoil
power to allow the above mentioned
rail waj companies to exact and collect
a royalty of 0 per cent, over and
above working expenses, on gold
and silver extracted from ores which
may be found npou any of the lauds
granted to these companies.
And whereas, the imposition of
such royaly is ub obnoxious to tho
quartz niiuera of the province, as the
imposition uf a royally would be a
continual ncurce of litigation and
contention between the owners of
the minerals and tho railway company claiming thu royalty, and would
be u great detriment to, if it did uot
absolutely retard uii mine development in the sections covered by
these land grants.
And whereas, some of tbe reasons
whereof may be briefly mentioned:
The area of the belts granted to
tbo lailnay companies being ho large
and the boundaries of tho railway
bloek3 not being definitely known,
prospectors will not search fur minerals on uny of the land known to be
iocluiled iu these railway belts, tbey
knowing well thut etileo cannot be
effected to capitalists of prospects or
mines subject to the provisions of
thu royalty JJelausi of tho Railway
Aid Act. It is a well established
(act ibat capitalists will not purchase
a mining claim if there is a shadow of
doubt as to its title, and thoy will he

etpor that lay on  tha  toblo before
him,   The prodding seemed  lo  bo
perfectly aimless, but wheu the conference was over it was found that
the senii-oceasioual touohes of the
nervous band  had   produced  the
results which  astonished all  who
beheld the figures so deftly sketched.
Oue of the figure lis styled  the  im'
pecunious   gentleman of  the old
school and the other the  slovenly
cynic.   Theso have  been engraved
and published to thu  world,  and
strange looking  objects  they make,
; But Ihe fact is brought out forcibly
| that in addition to his many other
' natural abilities Mr, Van Home is a
born artist, a genias,of vast resources.
How many Canadians know Mr.
Viin  Heme's
Well,
here are the landmarks of it. He
was born iu Will County, Illinois, in
February 1813. He entered the service of the Illiuoia Coutral railway
as telegraph operator at Chicago,
He afterwards put iu six years on
tho Juliet division of the Michigan
Central. When he became of age
he tool: service with the Chicago
and Alton railway as train deBpntcher
then us superintendent of telegraphs,
and later, as ''assisstant superiutsu'
dent of tbe rail way, Mr. Van Home
is a living proof of mendacity cf
that proverb about the rolling stone,
for be has rolled around considerable
and gathered "moss" all Iho time,
Iu 1S72 he became general superiu'
teuileutof tbe iii. Louis, Kansas
City and Northern Railway, From
Oct. 1874 till Oct, It
Ths following article  which  will
bo read with interest by tho Star's |
rcadi rs is from the pen of Mr, John j
A. Euan, Ottawa, and is published
by the American Press Association : j
How unuchalently we accept the!
most revolutionary changes, Today
v.o are content to make our journey-1
ing* behind the laggard heels of a
horse ; tomorrow we speed by steam j
at the rate of iO miles an hour, and
the next day the novelty and ehuiijje ]
arc forgotten. Today wo are content I
to road the news of Europe a fortnight old ; tomorrow we read at the
dinner and tea table, that day's doings iu lbe eld world, of its kings,
philosophers and prize lighters before
they havo positively transpired, if
we fake the fiice of the clock as evidence. Wo do bo and scarcely won
dcr at tho enchantment. So it is
with the C. P, R, Its fast trains ruu
through our towns, bound for iLoir
fur away terminus at the shores of
the Pacific sea, and the vastness of
the change that a few years has produced never ruffles the oalm of that
gray matter of the brain which, wo
lire told by physiologists, is the stuff
that iaovcs tbe world. But if you
will just reflect a Utile, llie remarka-
      I ba was gou'
oral manager of the Southern
Minnesota line, b lug president from
Dec. 1877 to Dec. 1879 he was also
general biiperinteudeut of the
Chicago aud Alton. I.i Jan. I860
he became general superintendent of
the Chicago, Milwaukee tied Si.
Paul railway, a position bo he-id for
two years, Iu the meantime his
capacity and ability as a railway man
became known iu the west, and the
projectors and capitalists of tbe
Canadian Pjicitio Railway secured
him as manager of that snterpiiss,
which lie assumed ou the 1st of Jail'
uary, 1882. Ho had not reached his
goal yet, however, for his career

Mr. Van Horns i) a man of large
ir.'imo, weighing considerably over

dowu the- hotel stairs of a morning
he is as wholesome and sturdy a
speciman of the mental and physical
man as wo hope to look on,
the lories shew no eigus of u desire
lo make overtures to him, and, uir
less hs coulil oommand a handsome
following, it is not likely that they
will see any use for him in their
ranks,���-Harold Frederic
