VICTORIA BOARD OF TRADE
Severely Criticise the Dilatory Bail-
way Policy of the Government.
The following excerpt is taken
from the annual report of the British Columbia Board of Trade of
Victoria, B.C. It is exceptionally
interesting to people living in the
Similkameen country owing to its
criticism of the Provincial Government's Railway Policy :—
No one who will carefully' t^vie*fc the
natural resources of British Columbia can
iail to be most favorably impressed (with
the great wealth contained therein. Dis-
tributec? over an area of nearjy 40^,000
..-square milas, and-the population being
»sparse, rapid development will be impossible under present conditions. But
the situation can be entirely changed by
improving means of communication.
In the early months of this year there
was a very buoyant feeling in business
circles engendered by the belief that important railway construction would be
commenced immediately. Disappointment HAS CAUSED A PERCEPTIBLE REACTION. Construction of the railways
provided for in the which was passed at
the recent session of the*legislature would
give a great impetus to business throughout Canada. The opening up of Vancouver'Island by a railway to the north end
is of the utmost importance. Unprecedented mining developments may be
expected to follow. There is much land
too which could be brought under c
tivation. In no part of the provii
is there so much timber wealth. The
railway would also pass through lana*^
which will be utilized in the manufactui
of wood pulp. The beneficial effect of
the establishment of such industries
countjy at. present practically.waste lands
would be felt throughout Canada. The
proposed railway between Kitimat
Hazel ton is equally a necessity. It would
pass through much agricultural land, and
form an outlet for a country rich in n:
erals which cannot now be developed
account of the cost of transporting the
requisite plants. Ii is gratifying to note
that surveyors have gone north to locate
this line.
IRJURY IS BEING DONE TO CANADA BY
DELAYING CONSTRUCTION OF THE COAST-
K60TENAY LINE. In consequence the
trade of the territory in which mining is
more advanced than elsewhere in British
Columbia i* made tributary to the United States via. Spokane.
The Yukon trade is undergoing a
change in consequence of the high freight
rates charged by the White Pass & Yukon railway. The immense trade of the
country is rapidly becoming tbe monopoly of large trading and transportation
companies in the United States, who
ship from San Francisco and elsewhere
via. St. Michael, and are thereby able to
sell goods on the basis of cost price of
similar goods shipped via. the railway
and realize a good margin of profit on
the difference in the freight. If the all-
Canadian route had been provided, as
was so urgently demanded, the present
situal ion would not be nearly so acute.
It is no exaggeration to say that the
possibilities of trade expansion in British
Columbia are unequalled in any part of
the British Empire. But if the full ben-
fits are to accrue the situation must be
faced boldly. Prompt, united and vigorous action i*5 necessary.
Ministers of the Dominion government
and eastern manufacturers, who visit this
province too seldom, have expressed
their astonishment at the resources. They
knowledged to be tLe manufactur-
best Canadian market. The most
sing need is Federal aid towards rail-
construction, which the provincial
contributions to the Federal treasury amply justify.   The sum paid into the Dom-
islot

about one-third of the collections having
been made at Victoria, the Capital.! j i
To these must be added the amounts
paid through the. fisheries, the post office
and other departments of the Federal
novernment.
The confidence of investors in the province of British Columbia is shown in

The statistical information appended
hereto, as far as possible, has been
brought down to date.
In congratulating the Board upon the
general prosperity of the province! it is
desired to record the active and increasing interest taken by menibers in the
various matters above referred to. At no
time in history was there greater need of
vigilance if its set standard of usefulness
is to be maintained.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Victoria, B.C., July 12, 1901.
In his speech after the, report was
read, the Hon. Richard McBride,
-Writere? of Mines, made the follow
ing statement:—
Hon. Richard McBride appreciated the
honor of having been asked to address
the British Columbia Board of Trade.
He felt gratified at the large space in the
report devoted to the mining industry—
which indicated that the board was keeping a close eye»upon one ofthe most important factors in the country's future
prosperty. "He had only been in charge
of that very important department for a
short time, and he felt the weight of responsibility confided to him. He and the
other members of the government were
alive to the necessity and importance of
advertising the mining and other resources of the province, and they were all
working together to attain that objict.
The department of mines had published
a summary of last year's mining operations which had been distributed at
home and abroad, in advance ofthe regular annual report, and he was led to
believe that the pamphlet had done
much good.
He regretted that certain miners had
gone on strike at Rossland, and trusted
that the dispute was not of so serious a
nature" as to be beyond a speedy settlement—which the government would do
their utmost to bring about.
Dwelling upon the great resources of
.e province, Mr. McBride declared
that the most important question facing
the government was that of transporta-
facilities—the country needed trails,
roads, bridges and railways.   The rail-

some quarters on their railway policy,

t was above criticism, and he liked

most   in   the   centre   of the  district i
future railways, and the only town of any
importance, which will probably become
as well known in the near future as Rossland or Greenwood are today. The credit of opening np this district lies equally
between the owner of the Sunset mine
and other copper properties on Copper
mountain, Mr. R. A. Brown, and the
Vermilion Forks Mining Company, who
have lSicTout and developed the town of
Princeton. As thejfltter is a small English Syndicate, which is likely to devel
op i
irge
f
ilsof this enterprise will be of interest to our readers
The idea was originated in i£p§, and the
company acquired 32Q_*jcres at the junction of the Similkameen and Tulameen
rivers, which is undoubtedly the most
commanding situation which could have
been chosen in the whole district. It is
the centre of supplies for all the mines
on Copper and Kennedy mountains, anc
enjoys natural advantages far superior to
those of Grand Forks or Rossland, anc.
as a centre for wholesale firms it ought
in the near future, to rank in this respect
with Nelson in importance. The topic
of most; importance in B. C. today is,
who will build the Coast Kootenay Railway, or, as it is sometimes called, the
Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern. Thai:
the railway will be built is certain, but
whether it will be controlled by the
Great Northern or the Canadian Pacific
has not yet been definitely arranged
This railway will, after passing through
the mountains at Hope, connect with
Princeton, and join this town to the
Rossland system of railways, and mineral development will then receive such an
impetus that the growth of the town will
probably be even more rapid than that of
Rossland or Greenwood. It will thus be
seen that the foresight of this company
in securing 320 acres of town site, which
under normal conditions, must become
the smelting and trading centre for the.
whole district, will probably result in a
very handsome return on the capital
pended. In addition to Jii£>,ooovi<
ing capital  invested by the compan;
which it is estimated will supply 800 h.p.,
as well as a supply of water for town use.
They   have   three  coal   licenses, which
gives them rights over 2,240 acres, and a
coal   lease,   extending  over  312   acres.
They have   seven   mineral claims, comprising over 400 acres of copper deposits,
and five hydraulic claims.     The assured
position of Princeton as the capital of the
district is indicated from the fact that the
government have made a grant for the
erection  of a  Court House, Records
Office, and Gaol.    It has also been   1
pointed the Assize town, and   there 1
already two bridges, which form a rea
means of communication to all the mil
