McCONNELL'S TRIP
"BRUCE," OF SATURDAY SUNSET,
SPEAKS PLAINLY
Tells the Public of His Bxpeiernce in
Crossing the Hope Trail on Foot
and Shows Reasons Why
Tnia la the Route
J. P. McConnell, editor of the Saturday Sunset, who, within the past two
weeks has made the trip on foot through
the Hope pass in order to satisfy himself as to the feasibility of the route
for the projected railroad lines, says:
"It is amazing and painful with what
cheerful idiocy the coast newspapers in
season and out of season, editorially and
in their news columns, condemn the
possibility of a practical railway route
through the Hope mountains. It is
incomprehensible that the coast newspapers should so cavalierly dismiss as
impractical a route which means so
much to the interests of this province
and particularly of Vancouver. No railway connection which Vancouver has in
contemplation is more valuable to the
future of this city's growth and trade
than that of the Nicola and Similkameen, which also means that of the
Boundary and Kootenay.
"One would think that any responsible
newspaper would hesitate at giving
currency to or perpetuating the fallacy
that there is no practical route through
the Hope mountains. With a pack on
my back and in company with an engineer I made the trip up the Coquahalla
and down the Coldwater rivers last
week and saw what I had frequently
been told existed, two practical passes
through those mountains and a possible
third one. On one of them a grade of
a maximum of 2.2 per cent, and on the
other one of 2.1 per cent, has been obtained without any extraordinary heavy
cost of construction.
"Yet important as this matter is for
British Columbia as a whole and of
Vancouver in particular, the Daily Province in a recent editorial discussing
the Fraser Canyon route, says it is
the Canadian Northern's shortest and
best route to the coast and it is hinted
that should the C.P.R. attempt to shut
out the C.N.R. by monopolizing both
aides of the canyon, the railway commission would interfere and compel the
C.P.R. to give running rights to other
roads.
"The Province is very far off the
facts. Not only is the Fraser Canyon
not the best but it is not the shortest.
On the other hand the route from Kamloops via Nicola and Hope is slightly
shorter than the Thompson-Fraser
route.
"If the C.P.R. could shut the C.N.R.
out of the Fraser above Hope it would
be a good thing for British Columbia
for the C.N.R. would then be compelled
to take the Hope mountain route.
"I have said there are two known
passes, with the possibility of a third.
Now here is the first one, surveyed by
the V. V. & E. from the Similkameen
Bide: Up the West Otter Creek to its
head, through what is known as Railway Pass due west and crossing the
Coldwater river at the 63-mile post
from Nicola, thence up July Creek to
its head, skirting the Anderson mountains and dropping onto Boston Bar
Creek and down the latter to the Coquahalla, from which point the grade is
easy and construction lighter than the
average in a mountainous country.
"The second route is from Princeton
up the Tulameen to Railroad Creek and
thence by a six mile tunnel over to the
Coquahalla. This route saves about
thirty miles of line over the former
which would more than pay for the cost
of the tunnel.
"From Princeton I learned that by an
eight mile tunnel through Summit mountain and down Dewdney or Fifteen Mile
creek a still better grade could be had.
This, I had not time to verify, but I
should not be at all surprised if it is
true.
"Of the other two routes there is absolutely not the slightest doubt. The
cost of construction should be no heavier than in the Fraser Canyon while
there is absolutely no comparison in
the tonnage possibilities between the
Nicola-Similkameen and the Fraser."
"Whatever distinction James J. Hill
may have achieved as a railway builder
and Empire maker in the United States
of America his accomplishments in Canada and especially in British Columbia,
entitle him only to the description of a
four-flusher, a wind-bag and a bluffer.
He is moreover a leech on the trade of
Canada. It is now nearly four years
since the writer in a letter to the Eastern press decribed Jim Hill's "lines" in
Canada as a series of bloodsuckers designed to sluice trade out of the Canadian Northwest to the Hill lines in the
States. His "lines" are mere feeders
thrown across the border. They run
north and south. Not one runs east
and west. They run into rich districts,
pick up what freight they can and haul
it out of the country. Any benefit they
confer is localized to the districts they
enter. Even the local benefits are infinitesimal. The Hill lines enter Canada
at sixteen different points along the
boundary line yet he has not a ronnd-
house nor a shop in Canada. So far as
I am aware not a single Hill train crew
lives in Canada. His lines are alien
bloodsuckers which contribute nothing
to Canadian national development. In
a general sense they are a detriment to
Canada. They build up nothing in this
country. They drain our resources to
build up the Hill lines."

DEATH OF CHARLES DBBARRO AT
GRANITH GREEK
Meeting- to Be Held In Herald Hall on
Saturday Evening to Organise
Band.���Pauline Johnson to
Give Grand Concert
Charles Debarro, one of the first
settlers in Granite creek, at the time of
the gold excitement passed away on the
last Monday in July. Mr. Debarro was
well known and everyone who knew him
was his friend. He was born at La-
chine, Que. 64 years ago, was a veteran
of the American civil war and spent
several years in the States. After being in the Tulameen and Granite creek
before '85 he went to British Guiana,
where he contracted yellow fever and
returned to B. C. in '98. He was at one
time proprietor of the Otter Flat
hotel and afterwards of the Granite
Creek hotel, which he recently disposed
of. The remains were interred at
Princeton, on Thursday, July 29th,
Rev. Conn conducting the funeral service. There was a large cortege, and
before the last clod fell, Debarro's "old
college chum," "Judge" Murphy, in
one of his unique speeches paid a fitting
tribute to the dead pioneer. They had
shared the same grub stake many a
time and were fast friends.
Strike Up the Band
A goodly number of the young people
of Merritt have signified their intention
of becoming members of the proposed
band for this town. Professor Simmons
offers his services for a class of instruction at a reasonable rate and, considering the musical talent available there is
no reason why Merritt should not have
a fine band. A preliminary meeting for
the purpose of organizing will be held
in The Herald hall tomorrow (Saturday) evening at 8 o'clock.

Johnson McRaye Concert
A treat is in store for the generBl
public on the evening of Monday,
August 16th, when "E. Pauline
Johnson (Tekahionwake), the Mohawk poet-entertainer, in sketches,

Menzies' hall. She will be accompanied by Walter McRaye, impersonator, in sketches from Dr. Drummond's "Habitant" folklore poems
of French Canada.
Tekahionwake, the Indian girl in
whose veins runs the fiery blood of
the Mohawks (who is herself the
daughter of the late Chief G. H.
M. Johnson, "Onwanonsyshon,"
Head Chief of the Iroquois Confederacy in Canada) was one of the
sensations of the past London Season. For this gifted daughter of
the red Indian race, is not only an
accomplished reader of her own
verse, but her poems are of a quality that stamp them as of unusually high order. Clad in her native
costume, she appeared before some
of the most fashionable English
audiences and her rendering of her
own compositions captured their
admiration.
Of Walter McRaye, T. P. O'Connor says this in M.A.P.: This Canadian Grossmith possesses rare
faculty  in  depicting  the  quaint

COMMUNITY SPIRIT
Every community has its own
peculiar complexion and temper
and its own particular ambitions,
latent or expressed. These are
sure to be lofty or low according as
the general average of intelligence
rises or declines and the moral atmosphere is kept celar and sweet
or is allowed to become murky and
malarial.
To remember the community interests as well as those of self and
family is the duty of every good
citizen. We should "root" for
them on every occasion, at the
same time not forgetting that there
are other communities whose distinctive excellencies are worthy of
praise. He who cannot see any
good in anything outside of his
own parish is guilty of narrowness,
and narrowness is the father of that
ignorance which is the curse of any
community.
At the same time and in the same
connection it must be admitted by
every fair-minded man that a clash
is devoutly to be avoided between
communities and between towns
whose interests are diversified to
such a degree that no combination
of those interests could be harmoniously conducted. Every town has
its own particular and peculiar conditions to contend with, and, although friendly relations should
prevail, it is absurd in the extreme
to imagine that any good can be
accomplished individually or collectively by an endeavor to work
these diversified interests under
one head.
"WHAT WOULD YOU DO"
If you were suddenly thrown upon your
own resources to battle for existence
and had r.o trade or special training or
means of livelihood? "Without Life
Insurance" your wife may be put in
just such a position. Why not secure
protection for her and your children by
joining
THE  MODERN WOODMEN
OF AMERICA?
The largest and best Fraternal Beneficiary Society in the whole world.
If you find it hard to pay interest on
the mortgage and meet the everyday
living expenses of your family, how do
you suppose your wife could pay the interest and keep the family together if
you should happen to die? A certificate
in the Modern Woodmen of America
furnishes the means by which the wife
can keep the family with her. Are you
a member? if not, get in on the ground
floor and become a charter member.
