Increased Revenue From Traffl..  Land
8ales Increasing. -Last of the
Land Grant Bonds Redeemed.
The twenty-fifth annual meeting of
the Canadian Pacific Railway was held
at Montreal recently; and for various
property. Thus far in the preseut year
your revenue from traffic shows a large
increase over the corresponding period
in the previous year, and while it is
entirely probable that later on the weekly comparisons will not be so striking,
there is every reason to anticipate improvement. Indeed, although neither
effort nor money is spared, we find it
almost impossible to provide cars and
locomotives rapidily enough with which
to meet the requirements of the business
development along your lines, in such a
manner as to satisfy with desireable
promptness, the demands of your patrons. At the special general meeting
held on March 1st it was  decided to
reasons was something of an event. As [ supplement the proceeds of the issue of
ordinary capital stock then authorised
by an appropriation from surplus earnings of five million dollars.
No portion of this appropriation had
been expended prior to June 30,   but
every one knows the building of the
Canadian Pacific Railway was undertaken by the Dominion Government as
a work of political necessity on the admission of the Northwest and British
Columbia into the confederation.   The |vour directors have caused the amount
Government struggled with the project t0 ���" 8et aside in the accounts of the
down to 1880, when it was taken over
by a syndicate, which, in 1881 was incorporated as the  Canadian    Pacific
Railway Company. In these twenty-five i Property. Early in July
years the company has had its ups and
downs, but is now one of the largest
and most successful institutions in the
world. Last year its gross earnings exceeded by $7,000,01X1 the revenues of the
Dominion from Customs and excise
taxation;and were greater than the entire revenues of the Dominion as late
as YM2. The net earnings were so large
that providing for certain special funds
and lor a dividend at a rate of tt per
cent, on the ordinary and 4 on the preference stock, there remained a surplus
of over eight and a quarter millions.
During the construction of the main
line it Was obliged IB-borrow $30,0000011
from the Dominion Treasury. The debt
principal, and inteiest, was promptly
repaid. All its land grant bonds, endorsed by the Dominion, have been paid
out of the sales of land. The Canadian
Pacific is by odds the best investment
Canada ever had to do with. The subsidy of 25,000,000 acres was a bagatelle
in 1880, when the land really possessed
no value beyond such as the prospect of
the railway gave it. As a land grant
it was not comparable to the 45,000,000
acres granted to the Atchison road or
to the 17,000,000 acres given to the
Northern Pacific. The cash subsidy of
$25,000,000, together with the $35'000,
000 represented by the Government
built sections of the line, most of which
had to be rebuilt, was not large by comparison with the bonuses given to rail-
rays of purely local importance by some
of the American States. Anyhow, for
all that it has received from Canada the
Canadian Pacific has rendered a splendid return. We owe to it, besides the
opening of the Northwest, the remarkable progress that has been made in
Hriiish Columbia, and in lesser measure
that which has taken place in the last
quarter of a century in the older  prov-
current year to be employed from time
to time as circumstances may warrant

"Jimmy" Chenall Dead.
James C. S. Chenall well known to Nicola residents died at the Jubilee Hospital,
Victoria, on September 29th, from tuberculosis of the throat [and was buried at
Victoria. The deceased who was 44
years of age was engaged with M. P.
Stewart's stage here for some time and
was interested in various mining interests in Nicola and the Similkameen
districts where he was well known and
respected. He leaves relations at Clinton and a widow and three children to
mourn his loss.
On Thursday, the 18th in .t

of members and friends will turn up to
make the event a success.
On Saturday the 20th inst., a tennis
tournament will be held on the Associa-
Flre In Armstrong.
On Thursday morning last week a fire
broke out in Armstrong and serious
damage was done. Eight buildings
were burned to the ground and it required the united efforts of the fire
brigade and of the citizens generally to
prevent the further spread of the fire.
Damage to the extent of $25,000 was
done which is only partly covered by
insurance. The origin of the fire is as
yet unknown. Temporary quarters

site Agreement With C.P.R
Not Materialised.
Justice Irving presided at the  Fall
Assizes held at Kamloops last  week.
There were but four criminal cases.
Of local interest was the case against
Ike Swite for horse stealing. A true
bill was brought in against Ike by the
Grand Jury. Ike was charged with
stealing a horse last June the property
of George Kilroy. Both men liveon the
Shaloose reserve near Coutlee. The
case for the Crown was that Ike took
the horse from Shaloose to Lillooet and
tried to sell it there but was promptly
arrested. For the defence A. D. Macintyre who represented the prisoner,
put his client into the box and examined
him. He said he had gone to Lillooet
openly without any attempt to avoid
people taking the horse with him to
jell at Kilroy's request. Hewastosel)
the horse for $80 and his commission
was to amount to $10. In the cross examination, Ike admitted that he had
been seven years in the penitentiary
for shooting and had served another
term of three years for horse stealing.
On both occasions the charges had been
false and witnesses had lied about him
as Kilroy was doing now. The Jury
retired and after an inteveral of three
hours handed a verdict of "not guilty".
His First Street Car.
Among the visitors to the city says
the Vancouver World man of Saturday
is Mr. John Peterson of Kamloops and
this is his first visit in 21 years. Mr.
Peterson is a very extensive farmer
and rancher having a large estate a
few miles from Kamloops on the Nicola
road. Until his arrival here this time,
Mr. Peterson had never seen a streetcar or an automobile, but he enjoyed a
ride in both, and the chauffeur would
have been in trouble with the police if
he had satisfied the old gentleman's desire for a "bit of a fast run." Mr. Peterson came down in company with Mr.
Dowswell, formerly proprietor or the

All the  fall  fairs in  this province
have now  been  brought  to  a close.
With one  or two exceptions all have
been conducted  to  a successful issue
and great  interest  has been taken in
the  exhibits of  produce   which were
shown. As a rule this district has been
represented at one or other of these
fairs by some exhibit that usually called for more than passing mention.
This year however, no exhibit of any
kind has found its way to any of the
fairs. This is not as it should be.
There have been several examples of
various kinds of produce raised in this i
locality which would undoubtedly have
secured some recognition of merit had
they been shown at any of the various
exhibitions held in the province, and it
seems a pity that the attention of the
outside public should not have been
drawn to the varied possibilities of the
Nicola Valley, It is to be hoped that
ere another twelve months roll by, some
arrangement can be made whereby a
representative collection of fruit and
products can be formed and sent to at
least one of those provincial exhibitions.
There is doubtless a considerable amount
of worry and trouble attendant on a
scheme of this nature but surely a
careful consideration of the resultant
benefits which might be derived from
