B. C. TO THE FRONT
OLD: COUNTRY LOOKING TO THIS
PROVINCE FOR INVKSTMEKT.
Warning to Investors Regarding Certain Doubtful Enterr rises   Cap
ltal   Obtainable for   Any
Legitimate Projects.
The Chairman of an English Company
the business and operations of which
are carried on in the Dominion, at a
meeting of its shareholders the other
day in London, made some remarks that
are well worth careful cousideration.
Laying down the proposition that
British Columbia would really start on
a period of great and substantial progress when it was able to attract capital
from the Old World, he pointed out how
important it was that means should be
taken to prevent investors and capitalists from being led to put money into
wild and reskless schemes. This view
cannot be to strongly urged on everyone
interested in the development of our
provincial resources and seeking to secure the aid of British capital for that
object. The collapse of one company
through bad management or because the
scheme was in itself unsound for some
reason or other, will do more harm to
enterprise of legitimate character than
can be overcome by the financial success
of half a dozen other compa lies. Those
who have followed the financial a.id
commercial history of British Columbia
during the past ten or fifteen years wil
endorse what we say. In miningcomp-
anies especially British investors in this
province have met with disappointment
and severe losses and the effect of thi
was for a long time most prejudical to
any attempts to secure capital from
Great Britain for mining schemes or.
indeed for any enterprise, even though
they were legitimate projects, holding
out prospects of reasonable returns on
the capital that was sought. As a result for some years it was dillicult il
not impossible, to secure llritish capital
for investment in this province, although
it flowed in a steady strea n into South
Africa and other Cnlonies and foreign
countries.
Now there is more disposition shown in
the Old Country to look to British Columbia as a field for investment. Can
ada as a whole has loomed large in many
ways in Great Britain dirinr ths last
few years and th: Pacific Province has
shared in the favorasle consideration
that is being given to ths Empire's
greatest and moat valu ible over-s^as
dependency. Fortunately, also, two or
three enterprises inagurated on a com
paratively small scale, have been sue
u IvertisemcnU of British Columbia mining and other companies, which hold
out inducements to investors in their
shares that are not likely to be realized.
We trust that bankers and others will
not hesitate to speak plainly on th se
nutters and let no opportunity pass for
warning people against investing theii
money in such schemes Times tf pros
perity have their own particular dangers, not the least of which is the spiri.
of speculation that takes up venture:
that would not receive any consideration in mure sober pariods. Some of
these "wild cats" are already offered
both in Eastern Canada and London.
Province's Resources.
There appears but little doubt that
British Columbia is on the eve of a great
boom. The great timber resources of
the province are being exploited in response to the call for lumber. To the
east lies millions of acres of treeless
country, fast filling up with people, who
must have lumber, and who must look
to us for it.
The mineral resources are being developed and the results are proving
highly satisfactory. These things are
becoming known and inquiries for farm
lands, timber area" and mining properties are coming in from every direction.
The north, the interior, the coast, are
all proving attractive to settlers, and
hey are coming. Railroads always
quick to realize a situation, are building
into and through the prorince, and ihis
in ans money and people.
Inti rviews with western men returned tWM the east reveal the fact that
he people back there want to know-
*aiu to know about our resouraes and
mr climate, and when people set out to
team about British Columbia much has
n��� n accomplished, bdeause invest igat-
on will prove the desirability of the
province for the investor or the home-
.naker.
And now if our public lands shall be
conserved to the public interest, and
jur private enterprises, particularly in
he mining line, conducted along sound
ines, the results cannot but be happy.
Govesnments and men must keep their
heads.
Capital is coming, our fruit lands are
pruving'a wonder, our mining resources
stores of wealth, and if the steady, persistent plodding of the last few years
is maintained the result will be most
gratifying.

Caledonian Ball.
The Caledonian Ball under the auspices of the Nicola Athletic Association
on Friday evening was an entire success.
The committee had spared no effort for
the comfort or enjoyment of the dancers. The floor was in splendid condi-
t on and about nine o'clock the dancing
started. A varied and most enjoyable
cesslul and yielded returns satisfactory I programme was gone through anddanc-

seemed likely to involve thair shareholders in considerable loss, have recently, under better conditions and management, given satisfactory results and
created a much better feeling in London
in rejrard to British Columbia as a field
for mining investments.
In the general interests of the Province it is of the highest importance that
this favorable position should be preserved and nothing done that would be likely to divert from us the stream of capital that is now beginning to flow in
this direction.   This warning is not per-
of the committee by donating refreshments and in other ways making the
ball the success it was. Special thanks
are due to Mrs. A. E. Howse who most
kindly loaned her piano for the occasion.

O. P R io Spend 16 Millions
Victorians are celebrating over the
assumed prospect of rapid growth of
the city, consequent upon the announcement by the C. P. R. of its intention
to spend 15 millions in clearing 150,000
icres of forest land tributary to Victoria and opening it up for agricultural
settlement. This, with the prospect of
he early establishment of ship-building
t'ards at Esquimalt, the construction of
he C. P. R. ocean docks there, the tak-
Dg of all the timber reserves of the C.
P. R. on the I.-land by an immense corporation, and other important industrial
ind expansive movements, justifies opt-
mism never befose known locally.
The C. P. R. announcement, as made
y Sir Thomas Shaughnessy yesterday

mw here, affords explanation of the
many large purchases of Victoria realty
by wealthy easterners during the past
fortnight.

N'icola line for passenger traffic is exceed by the C. P. R. from Ottawa
wi hin a week or ten days. Recently
the rail.vay commission's engineer inspected the entire line, and expressed
himself as satisfied with its construction.
Formal notice of official approval is expected at any time therefore. Although
ihe road is acceptable to the government, and could be opened as soon as
formal permission is granted, it is not
likely that passenger traffic will be commenced till the beginning of next year
owing to the desire to complete a num-

be erected at once and a large boarding
house will be put up to accommodate
the men. Work will be commenced on
the bunkers at the same time and actual
mining operations will be pushed immediately as coal is avaliaole for mining

Young People'a Guild.
Considerable interest was taken in
the debate "Is the subisdising of railways detrimental to the best interests
of the country" on Tuesday night at
ihe meeting of the Young People's
Guild. Messrs. Grimmette, Matehws,
Roberts, and Brash took part in the debate and the judging was done by Messrs. Allan , Howse and Rennie whogave
the verdict in favor of the afiirmative
side of the question as dealth with by
Messrs. Grimmett and Mathews. The
debate was a most interesting one and
it is hoped that arrangements will be
made for another debate in the near future. The next meeting of the Young
People's Guild will be held at Quilchena
on Dec. 18th. at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. W. F. Jackson who have extended a cordial invitation to the Guild.

Church of England baza��r.
The bazaar held in Pooley's Hall on
Friday afternoon by the Ladies Guild of
the Church of England was a unqualified
success. The hall was gaily decorated
with flags and bunting, while the dainty
decorations on the various stalls set off
to advantage the fancy goods exposed
for sale. Owing to other attractions
the crowd at the bazaar was not quite
so large as last year but they fully made
up for that by their unstinted buying.
The fancy work was almost all disposed of by the close of the bazaar while
the refreshment stalls were kept continually busy all afternoon. The result
of the day's sale is that the funds of
the Ladies Guild will b enefit to the ex
tent of about one hundred and forty
dollars.
Arrangements are being made for the
annual Christmas tree entertainment.

REVISED CUSTOMS TARIFF.
The revised customs tariff, nj on whMi
tie government has heen working foi
three years past, was pfowattd to parliament by Finance Minister Fielding
last week. The new tariff is made up
of thre ��� separate columns:
(1) B it h pr'ferential tariff.
(2) Intermediate tariff.
(3) General tariff.
The first applies, as at present, to
Great Britain and the British colonies
which already enjoy its benefits.
The intermediate tariff is not brought
into actual force at once, but ht Id for
the purpose of negotiation with foreign
countries who may be desirous of trading with us on a fair basis. The government's p irpoM is to hold it as a
standing offer to all foreign count lies
who desire reciprocal tariff arrangements with the Dominion, by which
mrans it is hoped that a large increase
t f Canadian markets abroad may be secured.
The general tariff ip P s, for the
present, to all foreign count lies and
those p nts of the British E np re which
ha- c lii.h. rto declined to trade with us
upon a reciprocal basis.
A flat preference rate of one third off
in favor of Great Britain is abandoned,
each item in the customs classification
being dealt with individually.
The dumping clause likewise remains
and is now extended so as to cover fr"e
goods as well as dutiable. Lumber
comes under the dumping clause.
The grouping and classification of the
tariff are entirely changed in the new
sehednles and the phraseology has been
altered as reference has shown desirable
The revenue will not be materally affected by the change. The changes are
more in form than anything else.
The duty on agricultural implements
is reduced from 20 to 17 1-2 per cent;
on windmills, from 25 to 20 per cent.
