Another Railway
Across Continent
Montreal, Dec. 8:���An application has been made to the Dominion government for permission
to build a new transcontinental
railway from Cape St. Charles,
on the Atlantic, to Dean Channel,
on the British Columbia coast
It is to be known as the All-Red
Line, and is said to be backed by
British capital.
British Cruisers to Mexico
London, Dec. 11:��� Two additional British cruisers have left
Jamaica for Mexico, to join the
four already there. The Mexican congress has declared
Huerta's election void and has
called- another general election.
General Villa, the revolutionary
leader, is massing troops in Northern Mexico, to march on the
capital and depose Huerta.
There are evidences of disaffection in the army of Huerta, the
president of Mexico. Many officers have been relieved of duty
and placed on the reserve list.
The general public is also said to
be dissatisfied with the government, and the constitutionalists,
who now control Northern Mexico, believe the Huerta regime is
practically ended.
Richard Kleesattel, the prominent mining man who recently
visited Hudson Bay mountain, is
now engaged in an examination
of the Silver Standard.
GREAT LOSS OF LIFE
IN TEXAS FLOODS
Bryan, Texas, Dec. 8.���Fifty-
three persons are known to be
dead and scores of others are reported to have lost their lives in
the floods which have been sweeping the valleys of the Brazos and
Trinity Rivers in Central and
South Central Texas. Three
thousand persons have been
driven to the upper floors of their
homes by the rising waters, or
have been compelled to seek
refuge in trees, where they remained for hours, in some cases
for two days, before being rescued. Estimates of the damage
generally centred around $2,000-
000. Land owners* nearby, in
the thirty mile levee district,
estimate that not less than two
thousand negroes and Italians
lost their lives in the Brazos
floods.
MINERS FOUND GUILTY
ON RIOTING CHARGES
New Westminster, Dec. 10.���
Eleven out of fourteen Ladysmith
miners on trial for rioting were
found guilty by Justice Morrison
and a jury, after a six-days'
trial. Sentences will be pronounced later. One hundred prisoners remain to be tried. The
judge strongly denounced the
actions of the unions and declared witnesses for the defence were
guilty of wholesale perjury. He
also criticized the counsel for the
defence. Many women and children were in court, and pathetic
scenes were witnessed when the
verdicts of guilty were returned.
���-KISPIOX M THE VICTIM
Ernest Kennett Done to Death by Unknown Assassin-
Crime Discovered on Thursday���Report That Indians
Had Previously Attempted Life of Victim���-Inquest
Next Tuesday
Waylaid while on his way to
Hazelton, Ernest George Kennett, a Kispiox settler, met his
death at the hands of a brutal
assassin, presumably on Monday
or Tuesday last. On Thursday
an Indian from Kispiox reported
having seen a Irody near the Kispiox road at Glen Vowell. Constables Brown and Ham went out
to investigate the story, and
found the body of Kennett a short
distance from the road. The victim had evidently been struck
down on the highway, the body
being dragged by the feet some
ten yards into the- brush. The
face, neck and back showed horrible knife wounds, while the hands
were gashed in such a manner as
to show that the unfortunate
man had made a brave effort to
defend himself.
The body was   brought   into
town yesterday, and Coroner
Hoskins impanelled a jury, including E. H, Hicks Beach, foreman, G. O. Graham. Fred. Field,
L. D. Fulton, R. G. Moseley and
W. F. Brewer. The jury viewed
the body this morning. The inquest was adjourned until Tuesday evening, to give the police an
opportunity to gather evidence.
Kennett had been a resident of
the district for a number of
years. He was of a quiet disposition and was generally liked.
So far as known, he had no enemies save Indians who had threatened him. A year ago, it is
stated, an Indian, who was not
identified, fired a shot at him
wounding him in the neck.
The constables are making
every effort to discover the murderer.

An order in-council was passed
by the cabinet yesterday prohibiting, until March 31st, all entry
to British Columbia of artisans
and laborers.
The order is general in its application and not restricted to any
particular country. The government is extremely careful, in
dealing with the situation, not to
discriminate against any race or
any nation, and the order, therefore, affects every country alike.

Victoria, Dec. 10:���Premier

Itmay now be regarded ascertainthattheProvincial Commission
on Agriculture, in its report to the Legislature, will recommend a
system of loans to settlers, either by Government advances, or by
guaranteed loans. The Miner has consistently advocated legislation of this nature, as a means of securing the settlement and
improvement of lands in the newer districts, and other papers
throughout the Province have joined in favoring the proposal.
About the only opposition we have noticed has been that of a local
contemporary, which, appeared with the argument that "Such a
policy would be wrong from the foundation. It would degenerate
the people and bring about the same results financial embarrassment to the Province -that resulted in other countries where it has
b-en tried out." Criticism from a source so evidently uninformed
seems negligible, but it may not be out of place to give a few
figures from New Zealand as an evidence of the erroneous nature
of the statement quoted. Since 181)5, New Zealand has made
27,689 loans, the average loan being $2,382.22. The total amount
of loans since the inception of the system amounts to $05,961,645.08:
of this Bum $31,716,645.68 has been repaid, leaving $36,244,990.62
on current loans.
There have been only thirty-live foreclosures in the eighteen
years. There were some small losses which have been written off,
and the net profits of the system amount to $2,884,874.61.
Returning from a thorough investigation of the New Zealand
svstt m, Alex. Lucas, M.L.A., chairman of the Provincial Agricultural Commission, in presenting a comprehensive report to his
associates, says:
"On my trips into the country I met all classes of workingmen.
small shop keepers and farmers. In the cities I interviewed the
bankers, merchants, lawyers, commission men and newspaper
editors; and at the Capital I interviewed the Government and
Opposition members of Parliament; and during the month that I
remained in New Zealand I failed to meet anyone who disapproved
ofthe State Guaranteed Advances to farmers. T'lore was some
complaint that officials were too particular in i card to th" securities
ottered; but I heard not a word against the principle involved in
Government guaranteed loans.
"I found it to be the almost unanimous opinion.of those whom I
met lhat the "Advance to Settlers Act," and the "State Guaranteed Loan Act," authorizing and guaranteeing loans to farmers on
the security of their land, for the purpose of improving and developing the same and increasing their output, was the most beneficial
legis'ation ever passed by the New Zealand Government; that it has
not only given a great impetus to the agricultural industry but it
has reacted in related and other industries in a further stimulation
of trade in general.
"With money available on terms suitable to the industry, the
farmers have built better houses, or remodelled their old ones;
brought large acreage of land under cultivation that otherwise
would be lying idle; have bought and kept better livestock; have
bought and kept more labor-saving machinery on the farm and in
the house; have erected elevated tanks and wind-mills; have laid on
water in their dwellings and in their outbuildings; have irrigation
for their vegetables and flower gardens round the houses; and have
increased their dairy herds. They keep more sheep and pigs, and
have so largely increased their farms that they are able to meet
the payments on the mortgage and adopt a higher and better
standard of living. Throughout the country a higher and better
civilization is gradually being evolved; the young men and women
are growing up, are happy, ancl contented to remain at home on
the farm, and find ample time and opportunity for recreation and
entertainment of a kind more wholesome and elevating than can be
obtained in the cities."
continental roads   for  Alaskan
service.
"We could get no better news
in the closing^ month of the year
than what is contained in Presi-
Wilson's message. I have been
speaking for the last three years
on the expansion of Northern
British Columbia anr1 the Yukon,
with a full appreciation of the
necessity of promoting such undertakings and there have been
many sceptical views. But now
that the situation is more or less
crystallized quick action on the
part of the Dominion and Ameri-
governments is what is hoped
for."
The Premier was asked if a
north-and-south line through
British Columbia, north of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, might be'
considered as a provincial enterprise. He answered that he be-;
lieved that a line of railway to
connect Alaska and the Yukon
with the south should be considered both in Canada and in
the  United States as a national
project.

Significant reference to the
possibility of railway development in the North, in connection
with President Wilson's recent
mess ige to Congress in the United Slates was made by Premier
McBride in an interview. Sir
Richard stated that he believed
the construction of a line of railway north and south through
British Columbia providing access to the Atlin and the Yukon
was a national enterprise. He
s:dd that closely linked with
such a possibility as the establishment of this line was the
building of railways in Alaska
and the eventual linking up of
that district with the United
States proper by means of steel
running through the Yukon and
this province.
Speaking of the reference in
P esident Wilson's message to
the e tin; ion of railway construction    in    Alaska,   Premier
McBride said:
"I desire to express my gratification at the attitude of Presi-
d< nt Wilson, as outlined in his
message to Congress, in respect
to Alaskan railway development.
While the proposal is to commence at once with the construction of a railway line from the
coast line to Matanuska coalfields,
some distance in the interior, involving the expenditure of about
$40,000,000, it must not be accepted as the final word on railway expansion in that section.
It is my firm belief that this is
the commencement of an ener-l
getic policy leading at once toj
the development of the far north!
and making for wonderful growth
there eventually. The fact that
the United States proposes to indulge in this present enterprise
may be taken as an indication of
the certainty of railway construction that will provide for
connection to the south through.
