was for tbe purpose of connecting
tbe Coast witb tbe Kootenays.
It is news to us tbat tbe building of the road depended vto any
great extent on the resources of tbe
Similkameen.
The opening up of this rich section has always oeen regarded as
merely incidental to the main object. However, Mr. Dewdney
takes pains to disabuse- our minds
of this idea, and in order to streng-
against the route,
roceeds to give the country a
lack eye.
It can readily be seen, therefore,
hat some other reason than the one
dvanced lies behind  this precious
trade from what should be its natural channel, to the cities south of
the boundary line.
If the Coast cities and the Kootenays prove so indifferent to their
best interests as to allow this important matter to escape their attention, it cannot be denied they
lily deserve the great loss of
wealth and population they will
thereby incur.
