After discussing the subject fully it was
decided to form a company to be known
as The Similkameen Racing and Athletic Association.
The capital stock of the company will
be $5000, divided into 1000 shares of the

A track will be leased for a term oi
years, with option of purchase, the special committee appointed for the purpose
having reported that a first-class half-

reasonable terms.
The following provisional directors
were appointed:

/^ice-President—-J. H. Jackson.
Secretary—James Anderson.
Treasurer—C. E. Thomas.
Directors—Messrs. Aldous, Webb, Duncan, Richter, McAlpin, Gibson.
Nearly ioo shares of stock were subscribed for at the meeting, and every assurance was given of the new movement
being a success.
The idea of holding a celebration on
Dominion Day was then discussed.
Finance and sports committees were
then appointed, who will report to the
next general meeting to be.held on Monday night.
The celebration will be held under the
auspices of the new organization, and as
the Keremeos road will be open and in

by iron-clad restrictions, restrictions
heretofore unheard of in countries
anxious to have their resources developed by railway construction.
It is well enough to bring forward
the cry that the interests of the people must be protected. Former railway legislation passed by our provincial governments did not suffi
ciently safeguard the interests of
the   people,   but the   railroads
Uur present business government
have gone to the other extreme. It
• has passed a measure which, although providing such protection
as the people must be satisfied with,
is so binding that it will be impossible to fmd capital willing to accept such stringent control. Result ; No railways will be built.
Take the Coast-Boundary railway, in which the people of the
Similkameen are so vitally interested, as an example.

If such a system had been pursued what would have been the result? Instead of a vague uncertainty as to whether the railroad
will be built at all, actual construction would now be taking place.
Confidence in the country and in
the government would have been
established in the mining and commercial circles of the world, and instead ofthe existing dull times, an
era of prosperity and progress would
have been-inaugurated.
Instead of this we find our government dominated by the powerful monopoly of the Canadian Pa-
ific Railway, introducing a meas-
ire which results will prove to have
the effect ardently desired by that
corporation, viz., No railway from
the Coast to the Boundary for a
year at least.

ON DELEGATIONS.
The Ashcroft Journal   Gives
Views On the Subject.
This
the
1 Ashcroft
r town distinguished by
having had no delegation down to interview the government. Delegatj
rule are humbugs and usually good cheer
prevails. After the trip the neighbors
look with some awe upon a delegate, and
the small boys point to him as he wanders
down the street after his return and say
he has been down to Victoria to interview the government.
"So far as its being out of place sending down delegations we do not agree.
They are harmless and amusing; no one
ever.takes them seriously, and the members, should listen to them with proper
respect. They are entitled to it, and the
town that sends them down expects it.
We have never heard of a delegation accomplishing anything at Victoria, and
we do not suppose after they have been
once a delegate anyone on the delegation
ever  expects   they    will   do   anything.

Yale has been most nobly represented.
We believe that no section of B. C. has
been so well represented delegatively as
has been Princeton. It has gone down
with flags flying and drums beating. It
has been cruelly threatened with a railroad, and not the one that the statesmen

Unfortunately for his veracity in saying
that Ashcroft has sent no delegations
down to interview the government, the

second  was the Ashcroft delegation o

The Xaud*- Subsidy Bill for aid to the
Ashcroft railway was cruelly shelved before the house prorogued, but then tbe
delegation bad gone home, and there is
no telling what might have happened had
they stayed.
Don't get jealous of Princeton, Journal, and don't try and belittle her number of voters, for we polled 84 votes last
provincial election, and ran you close for
first place in West Vale. Yes! and we
dont mind betting you a cool hundred
that we will take first place next time,

Princeton's all right, and her citizens
know what they want and will fight till
they get it, and no matter how a C. P. R.
story may be believed in Ashcroft, it is
not so easily swallowed in the Similka-
