Progress Club Meeting Divided on Best Course to Hopt—Members Voice
Opinions-Decide to Await Further Advices—Another Meeting
be Called. ■HHHHH
The Revelstoke Progress  Club met' >
in special meeting on Thursday evening at thhe City Hall at 8 p.m.
In the absence oi President F. M.
Qibson, Vice-President J. D. Sibbald
ir., occupied the chiair.
Some tweaty members were present
when the meeting came to order at
8:30 p.m., but later on tbis number
whs increased to some fifty members
and others.
Ohairman J.D. Sibbald, jr.,—As you
nre all aware, this special meeting of
tbc Progress Cluh was called to discuss ihe matter of the railway from
the North.   This meeting is now open
Mr. J. 1). Sibbald, sr..—I presume
that this meting ha- been called on
u-count of something I said at th-?'
Inst Board of Trade meeting. It was'
decided thnt the matter of the Big
llend Railway should come before a
larger number of people.
Thia country has for    'a number of
year6 been promised railways fro.n the
south  and we need  one  badly     from
the north.   Wo all know that     there
is timber    enough in the north     to
keep  one  railway  runn'ng for thirty
years;     ther.: is land and     minerals,
making a very large freight, and mak |
ing it possible for the railway crossing  three transcontinental lines,     to
act as a feeder to these transcontinental roads, that is the G.T.P.,    thc I
C.N.R., and tha     C.P.Ry.   Bach     of,
these roads cro.-ses the river, only be-j
Befitting the country touched upon for
a few miles, and leaving large quant- j
illes of land lying between these lines I
whieh should bc tapped.
T was in London last Bpring,     andj
some  parties came  to mc  in  relation!
to a     railway     proposition.   I
them I did not come over with
proposition,     but     I thought I knew
something which might  he what they
I drafted a road from Tete Ja'uUe
Cache down to Northport in Washin;-
ton. We went into the matter. I
took those parties to see the British
Columbia representative in. Loudon,
and Mr. Turner said he did not be -
lieve there was a better one in the
province   of  British   Columbia-   After
• The     Annual     Meeting of the
• Revelstoke     Board    of     Trade
• postponed  from    January   21st,
• will be held on   Thursday even-
• ing, January 3Cth, at 7:30 p,m.
• in the City Hall, for co.isidera-
•^tion of the Annual Report, Hlec-
• of officers and ordinary business
to take the matter up, und that the
only thing to do was to bring it before the government during tho present session, Now you know all about
the subject, and it will he left to you
lo deal with.
Mr. Chairman, gentlemen, I do not
know that I know very much aboul
thc subject, yo l all know a commit -
tee waited last year upon the government, also know what was done at
that time, and now wc learn that
there will be some more legislation
i ome In from the government on railway questions. The matter was dis -
cussed by thc Board of Trade, and we
did not think it was tt sufficiently
strong meeting to lake the matter up
I am sure we are all deeply interested
in tbc opening up of the Big Bend.
I ast year wh n we went down we
bad great deal of censure because
we did not go until too late, and the
1 roposition is. if we are going to
taketbe matter up this year with the
government, wc should con-ider aad
do so early.
We might discuss the matter, and
perhaps a resolution might be framed, and sent down, I do not think it
would do any harm to either send a
resolution or delegation, just to remind them that we still mean busi -
ness in regard to the Big Bend Railway.
I have no message, or any information on tbe subject.
J. D. Sibbald, sr.—Had wc any information as to what is goiag on in
the present bill we might be able to
discuss it, I had a message which led
told'n,e *° believe that we might have
orVy| known by this time today what wa
in the bill, 1 haw, however, received
r.o further information.
A. J. McDonell—When will the bill
be brought down.
J.D. Sibbald—It was expected that
we might he able to find out whether
this railway wa- in the rresent bill
or not. but we have received no further information. Mr. T. Kilpatrick
is down in Victoria now, and I under
stand was approa'hed on th; matter
through trunk lines, by asking the
trunk lines to build the road and help
ing the- road down the Big Bend as
they have done in other places. We
would like to see something brought
down in tbe legislature regarding th^
Big Bend Railway
A. J.—McDonell—I do not think our
trip to Victoria did harm. I would
be in favor o! asking the government
ior what we have been already promised, we gain nothing here by .-itting
a. a McCleneghan.
It was not my intention to say anything, 1 am a little in the dark in
regard to this meeting. Personally I
feel it would do no harm to ask th-
Hon. Thomas Taylor of Mr. McBride
i! there is any prosrect o' a subsidy
being granted to aline of railway
down  the Big Bend, we should couple
ourselves with no particular line. We 	
expert and hope that the C.P.Ry. will Names Of Promoters
he making developments and spending
large sums of money in this city and
district during the next three years.
It is possible, anl the C.P.R. might
themselves contemplate coming down
the Big Bend. I am personally strong
ly opposed however, to the sending
down to the government, of a resolution which might contain anything in
the nature of a threat or demand. I
think we would be well advised if wa
-ent a letter to the Hon. Thomas
Taylor, asking ii there is anything in
store for us during the coming scs -
Chairman—The idea would be to
Eubsidis? any line which would come
down the Big Bend.
W. H. Horobin—Of course wc must
not lose fight of th? fact that there
i- now before the Dominion House an
application for a chart -r dowa the
Big Bend.
Mr. J.D. Sibbald, er.—I have here a
i. tier from Premier McBride, in which
he requests that we will keep the mat
action 1 would like this Progress club
to take would be a letter probably to
Mi. Taj lor.
Af J. McDonell—I would li'.te to see
a resolution sent down fro this
Progress Club, not a delegation, just
to kivp it before the government.
The amendment was thin put to the
meeting and declared carried by 14
votes to 8.
Secretary Horobin—1 ihink it would
1 e advisable immediately upon re -
ceipt of this iirforma'ticn, to Call a
special meeting we cau notify the mem
bers through th" press. I
After some further desultry discus -
sion, the meeting terminated at 11

Tbe annual meeting ot the Revel -
stoke Conservative Association was
held in Selkirk Hall at 7:46 la-t
Thursday evening. Tbe hall was well
filled with Conservatives. Pnslduit
Rand Gibbons occupied the chair,
while W. R. Reid of Arrowhead, vi™
president oi th> Ccniral Conservative
Asfociation, occupied a si at on the
After culling the meeting to order
President Gibbous spoke referring to
the unavoidable absenc.t from ths
meeting of Hon. Thos. Taylor, who
had been prevented from being present
by unavoidable circumstances. The
Minister of Public Works bad always
made it a point to l>e present at the=e
annual meetings in thi past and hei
regretted very much that he was not
here this evening. At thc name of
Hon. Thos. Taylor there was loud
and prolonged cheers.
Preside nt Gihbons then stated lhat
owing to the fact that there was another important meeting the same
evening he would confine his report to
three heads:
First—The unanimous return of oar
member last March.
Second—The election of Mr. R. F.
I'.reen to the Federal house.
Third—And th- annual convention
at Revelstoke which did this city a
great deal of good. All who attended stating that they hai been well
ir. ated.— Loud applause.
Mr. Gibbons continued in part   as
follows—My term of office has expired
when handing over tbe rein-* of offlc<>.
1 wi-h to express my sincere     thanks
to all tbe officers of thu Association.
(specially to Mr.  J.   H.    Armstrong,
vice-president of the Association, who
has proved more than equal to    the
Whereas a petition has been present-   task before himf   He    has carried on
ed praying that it be enacted as bere   the work   in my abssnee ia a   highly
inafter set forth, and  it is expedient   satisfactory manner. —Loud applause.
to grant the prayer of the said peti-1    President Gibbons then stated that
thin';.     we
ibis we further discussed the matter,
and ahout that time came in thc proposition of a to" being charged thru'
Panama, for wheat taken outside the
United States. I appeared that if
tbis road could be cut to the point
were demonstrated, it could join   the
before he left for the i oast.
R.   Gordon—I  have  no  information
1 that would be of any use to the meeting tonight.   Taking  the matter as I
; size it up.  I would consider any   ae-
I tion on the part of the Progress Club
at the present time would be very ill
advised.   La-t  -prir.g wc had „ strik
er.R. or Canadian Northern,       and
place wheat at Portland, Oregon, and
carry same in American bottoms thru   in<? "ample of what not  to do, and
tha Panama at a Saving of four cents1I «*»•-     wi*h thp experience   in our
per bushel for wheat.   Thc matter ap'
pealed to them, and tbey wished to
know if they .ould obtain a charter
and if the governui. nt would do ths
same for them a- for others.
Mr. McBride was In London, and
be stated to rae there he had some arrangement wiih thi> Canadian North
which would nol allow of him doing
anything for another road. I took
these parties to him and be told them
exactly the same thing excepting that
he said "hc might be able to know in
July whether any change would
made in the program, as he expected
to commence work then on a survey
down the river, and he told the parlies they would have to put up a deposit within thirty days, and they expressed their willingness to do so and
they would have their surveyors on
the ground within that  time.
We have not got anything done at
all on the Big Hind Road up to the
present moment, and T think a- expressed to me the other day I met
parlies nnd men who nre in sympathy
willi the government and they snid it
wns up to the people of Rev.Istoke
Ui get that railway started, and that
the government having arrangements
with the Oanadian Northern, that the
with the	
minds at the present lime we would
l>e worse than th ■ proverbial mill" to
repeat thj fame thing. The pioposal
as I undersiand it is to tend a del" -
gation to Victoria to demand of the'
government the construction of a
railway between the liues of the C.N.
R. and thv G.T.P. now being con -
Btructed, and Revelstoke'. Any of us
that have seen anything at aU about
the construction of railway^ In Western Canada know that it i= not a
good thing to run what is a mere
spur road between two trunk lines. It
is only a matter of time until the
trunk road- will cither kill that road
or own it my opinion is that we must
wait until one of the trunk lines buiid
the road
Mr. C B. Hum.—I have not yet
lieen able to see what harm was don.'
by the delegation which went to the
coast la-t yeai. We are not trying to
force anjiiody.it la a que-tion of asking, anl tho-e who ask, generally receive. The government themselves
have already re. ognized the Big B.-nd
Railway, by mentioning same in spee
.lies from the platform, an.l also thru
Premier McBride addressing he delegation at Vi toria. We propose that
ih.- govi   ' ■ ho .1.1  do  -nmcihine
ter before him, 1 ho not
(ould do better than send
down  ihere.
I take exception to thai, Mr. Sib -
I aid has a letter personally addressed
to himself, but there certainly is no
request on record from thc Premier
io thiB Progress Club asking us to
keep thi- matter heroic him.
Mr. J. D. Sibbald, sr.— I move a
resolution "That as information was
expected to be available from Victor
ia in relation to the railway proposition, but wTiie-h information is not to
band and in order to decide upon
Fome line of action, that thia iiveting
te adjourned until Saturday evening
at 8 p.m." Sce-onded by Mr. A. J.
Mr. Theo. Wadman—I move un amendment "That the secretary le in -
gt rue ted to write the Hon. rhouin •
Taylor in regard to ibe matter an.l
that Mr. T. Kilpatiick who is now at
the coa-t, be requested to have un
interview with the Premier." Bee -
ended by Mr. H. J. McSorley.
Mr. McSorley—In seconding that resolution of course we have a lot of
different opinions as to what we
Ft ould and should not do. We have
had a Progress Club for something
like a Vear now. and I think we have
cone a lot of good for the city. 1
think that pos-itdy my idea ol
thing along thi- line would possibly
be ., letter to Mr. Taylor, and I consider we have a lot of workto do
in this club, and I do not think we
should take up matters i oncerning
which there is such 0 diflcrencs of opinion, too strongly. 1 do not like
the idea of resolutions or action from
tion: Therefore His Majesty, by and
with the advica and consent of the
Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as lollows:—

When it came to electing the Sec-

tresi-ni Secretary Theo. Wadman, referring to him a- the old stand by —
which nomination was made unanimous, lloevcr, Mr. Wadman declined
to acppt offlie again, he said:—I ap.
predate very much the nominating
me for tb> seventh time of *our Association during my six years ol of-
fie-e I bave always tried to work in
the interests of tbe Association, but
I feel that under present conditions ,
bein? a government tmployee, I cannot consi>tcntly a,< t as secretary to

The meeting throughout was the acme of harmony and enthusiasm anl
but for the fact that another important meeting in the city ent the pro

would have b'Cn done.
This annual m<?eting was mark-'.
foi the great enthu-iasm displayed,
and for ths unity in which the work

of 130,000, only 121 housts are fitted
with bathrooms and most of these
are in drinking houses, The medical
officer of health for Toplar, another
thickly populated district, jocularly
declares that he "never heard of such
a thing as a bath," in his borough,

Ths government will introduce this
session a bill to create a department
or public bealth. Hon. Dr. Roche,
Minister of Interior, has for years
been interested in national problems
of health, and the work of preparing
a bill has been placed in his hands
nnd the hands of Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, under
whose department the present branch
of public be.i! h lies. At present the
several departments are undertaking
different bran lies of public bealth
work, and the work is naturally done
in a more or less haphazard manner.
For instance quarantine is loo'.ced after by th? Minister of Agriculture, the
inspection of Immigrants is handled
ly the Minister rf Interior, and th?
lure fcols act is administered by the
Minister of In'nnl Revenue.
While ih^ scope of the bill has not
yet b. en definitely settled, some of
the fields of work which it is proposed to allot to the new depa-tment.
and wbich Dr. Ro -he is considering,
are thc following: Sanitary advice to
municipalities, qu.iran ine, th- health
of employees of public works, the coi-
ic ling of v;ial statistics, the adulteration of fool, the sanitary and medical side of Indian affairs, the medical
inspection of immigrants, the operation of sick sa'iien's and marine hos-
pita's and the supervision of a National Bacteriological Laboratory at
ieet", Ottawa.

Hon. Thomas Taylor Outlines Plans for 1913-Vast Expenditures throughout British Columbia—Railway
Construction Vancouver Island and cTWainland—Revelstoke Court House to be Completed.
At no time in th' history ol the'
West lias th.- future held out more
promise' foi British Columbia than at
the present. The year 1313 should be
lhe Banner Year for this province.
The railway construction now undei'
way on the Mainland nnd Vancouvei
Island should be nearing completion,
by the close oi 1913. The Canadian
Northern Pacific with main lin* on
Vancouver Island and Mainland ;ln 1
bransh"S will approximate 850 miles;
thc Pacillc Great Eastern from Van
■ oiiver to Fort George, +50 miles; the
Grand Trunk Pacific, 780; the Keltla
Valley, u.'.ft; tho Canadian Pacific Rail
way extension on the Island an.l
branches on the Mainland will approx
imate 175 miles, to say nothing .>:
th.' double traoklng oi the main iin'
trom Vancouver to Alberta. The Victoria. Van'Oliver & Eastern will also
make considerable extensions to its
line west of Princeton. All told au
additional mileage of 2600 miles ol
railroad will be well advance.! and the
greater portion completed by the end
of 1913
To keep pace with tho railroad development ii will !>.■ necessary to open up contiguous agricultural :ands
for settlement, as well a- to further
ext<nl main roads now being buill
und to maintain those already con
structed. Tt is hoped that the main
road up thi North Thompson River
ean be push d forward towards the
Alberta boundary and the survey in
connection with th' trana-provincial
road in thr neighborhood ol Kootenay
Lake completed. The construction of
ihe link on thi< ron 1 irom Hop.' to
Princeton during the last season has
been well advanced nnd with the *>erk
already well organised uuder the -u-
gineering surveillance of Messrs. Cleveland & Cameron, .• ivi 1 engineer!* of
Vancouver, ihj work will progress ra-
rldly in 1113 Then, too, th- road
from Windermere in the Columbia val
ley via .Sinclair and Vermillion Pa—
to Banff, which ha- i.e. n in charge ol
Messrs. Haflner & Wur telle will lie
push il through ns expeditiously as
possible. The work of opening up
Strathcona I'ark reserve by wagOD
road from t'ampbill River to Buttles
