PRINCETON, APRIL 13th, 190U
Favor the V.V.&E.
Vancouver Solid for Vancouver-A few
Would Favor Government Ownership—But the C. P. R. is Barred by
All from the Coast-Kootenay Bail-
road.
Tbnrsday night's mass meeting in Vancouver was called to older by Mayor
Townley. He said that the province
needed competitive railways, and particularly a competitive railway east
through the Hope mountains. Vancouver must be a terminal point on that railway. Letters of regret were read from
Mayor Scott, of New Westminster, who
said that the time was not ripe for the
people to criticize the railway policy of
the government; from Mayor Hayward,
w.gf.yictQriq, who regretted a previous engagement; from Harry Helmcken, of
Victoria, who drew attention to Victoria's
strong stand and hoped Vancouver would
do' likewise. His letter wad received
with prolonged cheering. Other letters
of regret were read. Neither Joseph
Martin nor Jas. F. Garden were present
at the meeting, and from neither was an
apology received.
Mr. Smith Curtis then spoke to the
resolution. He was received with round
after round of tremendous aud enthusiastic cheering.
In conclusion he reminded his bearers
that if this railway question was shelved
for a year now it would be two and a half
years before they got a road into the
Similkameen country. If they did not
wont to wait that time, they should instruct their representatives accordingly.
Judge Murphy then made a characteristic speech in favor of the resolution.
He referred to the premier as one ofthe
most patriotic of men, who had taxed his
own coal 5 cents per ton and raised the
price of it by 50 cents a ton. Of him i
was whispered in Gath that he had en
tered a compact with the Canadian Pari
fie railway, by which he would control
the h le of Vancouver Island if he
sisted the Canadian Pacific to corral the
whole of the mainland.
Mr. R. E. Ellis moved an amendment
in favor of government ownership, and
was seconded by Mr. Thomas Matthews.
Mr.  Hugh Gilmour, M.P.P., said he
was in favor of government ownership,
bnt would not reject a road built by
- private company if it gave competition.
James Anderson, of Princeton, then
spoke to the resolution, and was followed
by Capt. Tatljw, M.P.P.
Wm. Smith, of Contlees, has been
town for several days, helping take stock
at Cook & Co.'s store. Mr. Smith is in
the employ of Blair & Co. of Contlee,
who are associated with Cook & Co. of
this place.

finished.
NICOLA NOTES.
A. E. Howse returned from Victoria o
Saturday last.
Prospectors are beginning to climb the
hills, and everything seems to point to a
very lively time this summer in mining
The ranchers are turning out their cattle on the hills, and the farmers are busy
ploughing, harrowing and seeding, and
all nature seems to be astir.
The concert given under the auspices
of the I. O. G. T. was an immensely successful one. Mesdames Neville and
Schuyler and Messrs. Orchard, Bell and
Frost were never heard to better advantage. Encores seemed to be the order of
the evening.
On Wednesday last John Clappertop
Esq., late government ag^nt at Nicola,
received the follo>Ktjng^/felegram from F
J. Fulton,M. P. P.T*' I am strongly it
favor of a competitive line, and will do
my best to have a commencement made
at as early a date as possible. Signed,
F.J.Fulton."
. An Enjoyable Time.
A most pleasant time was had
Thursday, at the Tulameen hotel, where
a goodly number of Princetonites gathered in response to an invitation from
Mr. and Mrs. Aldpus. The evening was
spent in dancing, card playing and other
amusements, everyone seeming to enjoy
themselves to the utmost. The music of
the evening was furnished by our reliable Wm. Knight, accompanied by
Chas. Thomas. After several hours of
enjoyment, which passed only too quickly, supper was served to the weary guests,
after which the amusements of the evening were again resumed, being continued
for several hours more. Too much cannot be said of the host and hostess as entertainers, and everyone went home with
the wish that more such good times
would follow.
Transportation the Key.
That transportation is the key that will
unlock the resources of the province Of
Britis 1 Columbia, is fully recognized
by the people, and in a democratic country like ours the will of the people is
supreme. The resolution bearing upon
the Crow's Nest Pass-Boundary question,
passed by the Associated Boards of Trade
of that section of the province was carried by a very large majority, after full
notice and discussion. The policy is endorsed by some of the most representative papers in Koo^nay and also by investors in Eastern Canada who have
large investments in the province —Winnipeg Free Press.
Ashcroft Meeting
An Enthusiastic Meeting at Which
Denis Murphy, M. F, Speaks in
Favor of a Competitive Line.
One of the most enthusiastic public
meetings held in Ashcroft for, a long time
took place on Saturday evening for the
purpose of discussing the subject of railway competition. Mr. Stuart Henderson, barrister, occupied the chair. The
speakers were Mr. Dennis Murphy, member for West Yale, and Mr. J. A. Anderson and Judge Murphy, of Princeton. Mr.
Denis Murphy dwelt at considerable
length on the importance of the district
he represents, especially from a mining
point of view, and the absolute necessity
for additional transportation facilities,,
and showed clearly the great advantage
that would accrue to the country, from
having a railway independent of the
Canadian Pacific railway.
CharlieVEagle Story.
Table luxuries come high in any country, but especially so in this far inland
community": No one appreciates this
fact more than one of our best citizens
who has been wearing a royal smile for
several days past, caused by an effort
tj cigeat a five-dollar tid-bit. And
hereby hangs a tale. Our friend, whom
we will call Charlie, has a great dislike
for that bird which is emblematic of
American liberty, and lets no opportunity
pass to reak his vengeance thereon. One
day this week he had occasion to go a
short way from town, when he came
upon a scene which made his blood run
cold. There, only a short way from
him, was the hated visage of his common
enemy carrying in its grasp a morsel
which a most unkind law had prohibited
him Irom killing. This was more than
he could bear, and, like David, he picked
up a stone and slew his Goliath. Now
that he had killed his enemy andjecured
the _chicken, what was he to do, as the
law plainly read that it was illegal to
kill, sell or have in possession. However, he thought it worth while to run
the blockade, and at once started for
town. On coming into town he met a
police officer, who, with kindly forethought, proceeded to be deeply interested in the extent of the Princeton coal
basin. But to no purpose, as some zealous sportsman insisted upon calling his
attention to this breach of law, and he
was finally compelled to arrest our friend
and bring him to trial. Charlie, with
tears in his eyes, told his story, but with •
out avail, as the judge considered that it
was necessary to make an example, and
fined him $5.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR.
THE COAST-KOOTENAY RAILWAY.
The following communication from
Mr. Charles Woodward, chairman of the
Citizens' Association, fully explains the
position taken by that body on the railway question.
To His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor-
. in-Conncil Victoria, B. C.
Sir,—At a special meeting ofthe Citizens' Association of Vancouver, held this
36th day of March, 1901, to discuss the
question ofthe proposed Coait-Kootenay
line of railway, it was resolved to submit
to Your Honor, for the consideration of
Your Honor's advisors, the reasons why,
in the opinion of tbe said association,
such a line should be constructed and
maintained by 1 some company independent of any railway company at present
. -connected with the port of Vancouver.
The Citizens' Association of Vancouver
strongly advocates competition in railways, but is at the same time entirely unprejudiced and free from any bias as to
any specific company. As a citizens' association it has been deemed advisable
for us to confine our argument to the advantages that must accrue to our own
city of Vancouver from competition in
-railways, recognizing at the same time
' that similar advantages must inevitably
follow to other ports and cities ofthe
province connected with the proposed
competing line of railway. Good ports
are lew and far between, not only on the
Pacific coast, but throughout the world,
and too much care cannot be exercised
to prevent their becoming monopolized
in the interests of any specific company.
The port of-Vancouver is unique, inC
much as it is the only first-class comnu
cial harbor on the Pacific coast of Ca
ada. There are, it is true, one or two
other good harbors on the coast of British
Columbia, but they can never occupy the
exceptional position of the port of Vancouver, as they are not so well situated
for effecting close connection with the
great railway lines of Canada and thi
United States. Such being the case, it i
a matter of most vital importance that
every means should be adopted to pi
vent the control of such a harbor by o
railway company. Such a thing, 1
submit, would be disastrous not only
Vancouver, but to the province and the
Dominion as a whole. Shipping would
be curtailed, for the reason that shipping
companies avoid, as far as possible, any
pott at which their trade would be hampered by conditions that must be made
with a railway company having entire
control ofthe port. Such was, until very
recently, the fete of San Francisco, and
there can be no doubt that her population and wealth would have been more
nearly equal to that of Chicago to-day
had there always existed railway competition in that city. This is a fact well
known to business men and all connected
with the great shipping companies.
With such an object lesson it seems to
us that it would be something more than
a grave folly to disregard it at this
tical period, and permit the trade ofthe
port of Vancouver to languish under the
throttling influence of one all powerful
company. We feel that no effort should
be spared to lay this matter urgently and
forcibly before the proper authorities. On
the common ground of being public carriers it is to the interest of both railway
companies and shipping companies to
build up and encourage the establishment
of industries, and so increase the carrying trade. But as between shipping companies and railway companies there is an
essential difference in one respect, viz.:
.rf-j-*/ It being a very expensive matter to construct, equip and maintain railways, competition is not so rife, and consequently
control of industries by freight exactions
is of common occurrence. On the other
hand, shipping, with its freedom from
road-beds and up-keep, is subject to keen
competition, and tbe control of industries
! that can bi exercised by shipping is, as
compared with railways, next to nothing.
Referring, Your Honor, to another
' f phase of the subject, we teg to submit
that competition is not always secured by
granting .powers to more than one company, or to all outside railway companies,
over_ a line owned and operated by a
dominent company. Supposing, for instance, that Your Honor's advisors, in
their endeavor to make the best bargain
V possible, were to accord the privilege of
building the Coast-Kootenay line to the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company, at
the same time attempting to safeguard

(Continued from page 5.)
the interests ofthe public by insisting
y upon running powers being given_ to
either railway companies over that line,
we respectfully submit that the dominant
company, as owner and operator of the
line, and having as much the right to
first consideration, could easily and effectively hamper even the most powerful
competitor by conditions that would virtually stultify the running powers given.
And we believe that the ingenuity of astute business men would always prove
sufficient to overcome any regulations designed by the government to prevent
this. We would point out to Your Honor
that the substitution of competition for
monopoly invariably accrues to the benefit of the community at large.
Although, as a citizens' association, our
argument has been made with particular
reference to our own city, there is nothing, we submit, in our contentions which
is not fair and concerned with the general welfare of the whole province. And
- in pleading the cause of competing lines
of railway to Vancouver we are at the
same time pleading the cause of other
cities of the province with which such
competing lines wonld be connected. !
We are informed on reliable authority,
and believe, that two large shipping companies are now prepared to establish connection with the port of Vancouver as
soon as railway competition is inaugurated here, and their advent foreshadows
the establishment of four large industries
to which they will give every assistance
with the express object of building up
their carrying trade.
We further submit that another great
benefit that would accrue to us through
the establishment of competing lines of
railway would be the placing ofthe lumber trade on a much sounder and more
profitable basis, both by land and sea.
Without dealing further with the specific arguments in favor of competition, we
respectfully urge Your Honor that nothing is so absolutely essential to the development of this province as cheap
transportation, and that it is only by the
establishment of independent, competing
lines that cheap transportation can be secured. The extension of cheap transportation facilities means the development of I
enormous resources at present lying dormant, and if it be necessary for the people to first grant pecuniary assistant.
a competing line, and under present >
ditions we consider that it is necessary, it
can be done with the assurance that the
reward will be an hundred fold.
As far as the city of Vancouver is concerned we certainly consider that it
would be cheaper, in the long run, to
give a bonus to induce competition in
railways than to confirm a monopoly
without a bonus. As we have already
pointed out, this is a matter affecting even
more than Dominion interests, and requires a statesmanlike policy which will
safeguard for all time the freedom of one
of the destined great ports of the empire.
And we would further respectfully, but
most emphatically, nrge upon Your Honor
and upon Your Honor's advisors, that
under no conditions, or restrictions whatsoever should a charter for, or assistance
in aid of the construction of the Coast-
Kootenay line of railway be given to an j
company not thoroughly^ independent of
any existing line of railway connected
with the city of Vancouver.
We also would respectfully call your
attention to a point in the report lately
laid before the provincial honse of the
iailway policy outlined by the Honorable the Premier in his address to the
—     Dominion Government, to wit, in which
7    is advocated a line from Midway tc
I—J   coast at some point south of the Fraser
river, having a ferry   connection
Vancouver Island, but making no provision for it running into the city of Vancouver.
All of which is' respectfully submitted.
Dated at the city of Vancouver, this
26th day of March, 1901.
