 COAST=KOOTENAY
CONTRACT SIGNED
Promoters will Now Approach
the Federal Government for
Reasonable   Assistance.
Hon. W. C. Wells, Chief Commissioner
of Lands and Works, stated to the  Prince this morning that the   contract
tween the government and   Messrs^
Lean Brothe3J2l-tttt»-«ty, 'for thei
i   struStloToT^short  line of railway from
\   the Coast to Kootenay, had been  sigf
j  and the  negotiations   finally completed.
The contract was  sent   to the   east -~-
cently for the signature of Lieut.-Gov
norjoly, and   was   returned a   few day
ago to Victoria.    When Mr. Well
ed from the interior  on Wednesday, the
document was here awaiting  his
and was signed in Vancouver.
Contingent   upon the   building of the
line, the contract provides  for a -govern
ment subsidy of $45°° Per nlile> Payabl
I either in cash or   inscribed  stock of the
government, as the latter may at the t
determine, but it carries   no land   g
with it, as  is   popularly supposed.    The
general terms of the contract are exactly
the same as provided in the act passed
the last session of the Legislature.
" We have made several surveys and it
of these alternate routes that will
be finally selected. One line makes the
| distance from Vancouver to Midway 293
miles, another 302 and a third 312 mil
profiles there is no grade heavier .
than two and a half per cent., and these j
levels have been arranged on a survey
starting from water level of the Fraser
River at Hope. As a matter of fact, the
Hope will be 700 feet up the
mountain, so that the heaviest grade that
ctually occur will be under two per
cent. Any railroadman will know that
compares favorably with the best]
__„js in the country. The highest points

FTact^ runs even lower than the
former figure.

S DOMINION.
Now that the contract with the Provincial government has been finally concluded, Messrs. McLean Bros, will enter
into negotiations with the Dominion
government, to see what the Federal authorities will do in the way of assistance
for the proposed short line. While no
definite action on the part of the Dominion authorities is expected before thje
next session of the House, the matter
will probably be brought before members of the government and the cabinet
this autumn by Mr. Norman McLean,
who intends making a nip to Ottawa for
that purpose.
" Once the Dominion determines upon
satisfactory assistance to the enterprise,
we are ready to go ahead and build the ,
line," said Mr. Norman McLean, whenj
talking over his firm's plans this morn-|
ing. " We have the preliminaries well
under way, and the financial part of the
proposition is in promising shape. Let
no one suppose we have been moving in
the dark, for we have complete surveys
and plans of alternate routes, with all
possible information regarding these estimates, profiles, etc. It is a business
proposition, and we are putting
businesslike basis from the start. Of
course, all this is costing us a good deal
of money, but we are prepared to carry
it through, if the Dominion  government
The development of the coal and
ike of the Nicola and Similkameen and
sources, especially of the
latter section, are of course what we con- J
sider assured matters on which the suc-
* of the railway will be certain," con-1
tinned Mr. McLean. |
" Here is the position of affairs : The
coal and copper and gold mining coun j
try is practically at the top of the divide,
to say, that the haul either way
from the mines "to the coast and from the
to smelters of the Boundary country, is down grade, and therefore cheap.
The mining country is one of the very
richest in the province, and we have it
from different mining men and compan-
very extensive development
will occur immediately a railway is assured. We can carry coal to the coast to
compete with the Vancouver Island pro-
reason that it is of equal
j quality and can, we think, be mor;
lily handled, and we can take coke
ifhe Boundary on a down-grade run only
half the present distance of transporta- j
tion from the Ciow's Nest Pass. The
mining district will afford an excellent
market for the hay and oats and other
farm produce grown in the Dolta and
Chilliwack, and from all we can see from
conservative estimates there will be an
excellent business from the start. Of
i course the development of the mineral
country is a big condition of success for
I the railway, but we believe that th:
assured, that smelters are certain t
built there, where coal, coke and fluxes
ight on the ground, and all other
conditions are more than favorable. The
railway will run through no waste country. The districts it will tap will be
either mineral or farming sections of the
best kind."—Vancouver Province, Aug. 2

I Mr. Emil3_Voigt, the   well   known
CoppefTZTountainand Similkameen
ing engineer, is visiting   the   City,
companied by his wife, Mr. Voigt travel
led to the Coast via the   Hope trail, pre^ ,
ferring   the   day and   a half  horseback
I journey via this   route to the   four   days
occupied by the stage and  railway route j
via   Spence's   Bridge   and   the C. P. R.
Speaking  of  his   trip, Mr. Voigt   states
that either for   business or  pleasure, the
Hope trail is by far   the best   route ; for
business it is much shorter, and for plea-
I sure it   takes one   through   magnificent
I scenery and across a  country intersected
with numerous-unrivaUed trout streams.
He cannot understand how any surveyor
could condemn   this route   for a railway
to the Coast; in his   opinion it is a most
suitable and in fact the only feasible line
i to take to bring the Coast in close  touch
I with   the Similkameen and  surrounding
country.   He also   pointed out   that the
railway route is   a matter which   should
receive the consideration of the business
men of New Westminster and Vancouver.
' When   the   Similkameen   and     Copper
Mountain districts are opened  up by the
railway, it will open up one of  the larg-
iug sections in the Province.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES
It is generally felt that the dignity of the bench could have been
amply vindicated by the imposition
of a much lighter penalty. There
is no doubt the language used was
ill-advised and offensive, but the
men attacked seem hardly the proper ones to judge their assailant, and
the senlence passed does much to
confirm McAdams' description of
them as " prejudiced."

COAL   MINING   ACCIDENTS.
The catastrophe at Eernie, in
May, by which so many miners
were destroyed is rapidly being forgotten, and we hear of no important changes being mooted in the
laws regulating coal mining in the
province. It looks as though the
only reason more stringent regulations are not being devised is because of the slightly increased cost
of mining that would fall upon the
mine owners.
This should not be allowed to
stand in the way for one mocnent
when the health and lives of British Columbia's coal miners are at
stake.
The province could safely abolish
all laws on the subject and . susti-
tute instead a law by which the
company losing a high percentage
of its men through preventable
causes would forfeit its mines to the
state. It would be safe to wager
that the coal companies would be
very careful under such circumstances to safeguard in every possible manner the lives of their workmen. The Cranbrook Herald says
that false economy in the way of
lack of facilities for sprinkling the
coal dust, did without a doubt, materially assist in bringing about the
Fernie . catastrophe, and adds :
" The government should demand
in the future of all coal companies,
greater assurance of safety, even if
the dividends have to be curtailed
to secure them.
McADAMS' SENTENCE.
McAdams, the editor of the San-
don Paystreak, who has been sentenced to nine month's imprison-
. ment in the Victoria gaol, besides
having to give bonds for $4000
with good securities as a guarantee
of good behaviour irt the future—
failing to secure which he must
spend another year in gaol, is meeting with considerable sympathy on
account of the severity of his sentence.
A CORPORATION ORGAN
The Vancouver Province in its
issue of July 24th quotes from the
editorial columns of the Star the
lion of Price Ellison, M. L. A.,
regarding the practability of building a line of railway through the
Hope Mountains.
The Province dees not give the
Star's comments on the matter,
and leaves the impression that we
endorse Mr. Ellison's views. Oi
the contrary, we quoted Mr. EHi
son in order to show the fallacy of
his contention; and the Province
guilty of what practically amoui
to a misrepresentation in quoting as
t does.
If any proof were  required as t
the ownershigof the Province, th

NOTICE.
A CANADIAN MINT.
The information has been given,
the coast papers by a Dominion
government official, that plans for
the establishment of a mint have
been under consideration for some
i, and that a location will be
selected immediately. It will probably be located at either Vancouver
or Ottawa.
It is likely we will soon be handling big round dollars made of silver from the Slocan and bearing the
Canadian coat of arms.
The Similkameen will undertake
to supply copper enough to do the
eastern cent belt, once the railway
reaches us.
EXCHANGE   COMMENTS.
Here is a contrast. At Johnstown, Pa., the other day the coal
pany gave $1,000 to each of the
surviving families of the victim's of
terrible colliery disaster. The
Crow's Nest Coal Co. subscribed at
the rate of less than $80 for each
victim's relatives, and the total subscriptions from the public only average about $250 for each life  lost.

SMITH CURTIS, M. P. P.
The Brilliant Member for Rossland Visits Ferguson and
Incidentally Talks
Politics.
Smith Curtis, M. P. P. for Ros:-
land riding, came into Ferguson
Friday night last, going out again
Saturday night for Fish Creek,
where he is interested in mining
property, and from thence to Victoria, where he will investigate
some mineral deposits on Vancouv
er Island. Mr. Curtis spent most
of Saturday looking over some mining property near Ferguson, but
before leaving town called at the
I Eagle sanctum where the Eagle
editor subjected him to a questioning on matters pertaining to mining, and also on the political situation in the province. Asked as to
the correctness of Mr. Joseph Martin's self praise for having been the
means of getting the land grant to
the Canadian Northern railway
thrown out as reported in the Eagle
from the Rossland Miner. Mr.
Curtis said   that   Mr. Martin's as-
mption was absurd for he had
nothing to do with its being thrown
out, but his action in the matter
during the past two sessions of the
house was wholly different from
what he seems to wish to lead the
people to believe. Not only did
Mr. Martin not take the stand he is
reported to have said he took, but
none of his followers in the house
ever took such a stand. As to the
report that the elections may be
brought on before another session,
Mr. Curtis said le thought it very
probable that the government
would bring on a general election,
for they cannot-hope with the government as now constituted to carry any important legislation, because of their small and wavering
majority. The government's actions last session were very generally condemned, and there appears
to be little confidence left for the
government in the hearts of the
people.
Being asked if he thought party
politics would be introduced into
the.next general election contest,
Mr. Curtis said he did not much
think they would. If they were
there would be at least three parties, the Liberal, Conservative, and
Progressive. If this is done he
would   certainly support the   Pro
gressives. Mr. Curtis said, however, it was his decided wish to
drop out of politics, and he did not
intend to run at next election if he
could possibly avoid it. Mr. Curtis
lso said that he worked hard and
conscientiously last session to get
legislation passed that would benefit the whole country, but though a
lot of time was consumed little was
accomplished. He characterized
the legislation passed and attempted by the Dunsmuir government as
surpassing in stupidity that of any
preceding government. What was
given away of the country's resources was far in excess of what the
Turner or any other government
had given.—Lardeau Eagle.

by a Scotch minister at Caledonia :

An Embarrassing Honor.
The obsequiousness of those who.
hope to advance themselves by being exceedingly polite to their sup-
riors in office sometimes assumes
n amusing aspect.
A certain head of a government
department was invited, says a
daily paper, to dine with others at
a table with a cabinet minister.
During the dinner the former, who
happened to be placed between a
door and a window, and had said
nothing at all, began to sneeze.
"Are you taking cold, Mr.
Brown ? " asked the cabinet minister.
"I believe I have that honor and
pleasure," answered Mr. Brown,
bowing very respectfully.

statement gives the following figures for the month : First class ore
sent to smelter, 11,479 tons, containing 6800 ounces gold, 11,100
ounces silver and 501,100 pounds
copper ; estimated profit, $66,000 ;

Business Ability Necessary.
In the Boundary's early days this

Granby mines of today—were
counted as practically worthless by
