GREAT NORTHERN     BRUTAL CRIME
Will   Follow Original V.,
& E. Survey.
V. I Committed  On Aged
Woman.
India
The following extract taken from the
Seattle Times of a recent date shows the
intentions of the Great Northern company regarding the building of the Coast-
Kootenay :
" When Jas. J. Hill built his first line
into British Columbia from Blaine to
South Westminster early in the
it was under the name of the New W
minster and Southern Railway Company,
and now the great railway magnati
makes another move under the Victoria,
r and   Eastern Railway Comp-
e latest   development is   the
a of a railroad   branching   from
the   Great   Northern at   Cloverdale
through the municipalities of Surrey and
Delta   to   Port   Guichon, where   an im
mense wharf is being built for  the landing of the   Great   Northern   car ferries
at Sydney, on the Island of Vancouver.
This makes a direct connection   between
the island and the mainland.   Not stopping at this construction, that will benefit Delta, grading for another part of the
line has been commenced from Vancou'
er to New Westminster, where   the   rai
road will cioss the new bridge now und<
construction over the Fraser river by the
Provincial government, and connect'
the Great Northern at Liverpool.
" The construction of the above two
lines explain the Victoria and Vancouver portions of the title, but the Eastern
is yet to be dealt with. But now that
the survey parties are taking the lay of
the land from Port Kells to Chilliwack,
and that 'right-of-way has been secured
into Phoenix and a number of interior
towns, together with the fact that the
proposed route from Port Kells to. ChilH-
wack lies through immense tracts of timber land, which can only be operated by
a railroad, all goes to show that the present survey from Port Kells will in all
probability be followed by construction
of the remainder of the new railway. In
fact a prominent construction man in the
employ of the G N. informed a Times
representative that within another year
the Great Northern would have trains
running all through the southern part of
the province.
" The question of crossing the Hope
mountains is practically settled as the
latest survey declares this may be accomplished by not more than a two per
cent, grade."
Hugh Kennedy, an old time prospector in the district, after whom Kennedy
Mountain was named, returned on Sunday last from the coast.
Constable Haynes of Keremeos and C.
E Oliver of Hedley City, were here on
Sunday last looking for a man named
West, who had committed a horribly
brutal crime on the person of an aged
klootchman, between this place and Hed-
They were unable to find any trace of
their man here, and returned to Hedley
Sunday evening.
The report has reached here since that
West has been captured, having been
found hiding in a deserted cabin in v
is known as the " brush bottoms,'
tween Hedley and Keremeos. He has
been taken to Fairview, and after a preliminary hearing will doubtless be sent
up for trial.
The crime was of an extremely re1
ing character, the Indian woman,
was 85 years old, receiving two broken
ribs and a broken finger at the hands of
her fiendish assailant.
West is said to be wanted on the other
side of the International boundary for
jail breaking. .
His latest crime was committed whili
under the influence of intoxicants.
COUSIN JACK.
J. G. Thynne, of Otter Valley, a heavy
stockholder in the Boulder Mining Co.,
owning the Cousin Jack group on Boulder Creek, has received a letter from one
of the eastern members of the company,
stating that development work will be
conducted on a large scale on their properties during the coming season, and that
the necessary machinery will be installed to enable Mr. Gallinger, the manager,
to show the claims up to advantage.
The Cousin Jack improved greatly under last year's work, and the evidences
point to its becoming a firstclass property under careful development.
The lead is of white quartz in a schist
formation, and runs without break the
full length of several claims. It varies
in width from 6 to 20 feet, and is conservatively estimated to carry between
$12 and $13 in all values.
Gold is the principal metal in the vein,
but it also carries silver, copper and lead.
Assays as high as $270.00 in gold have
been had from Cousin Jack ore, and a
little free gold was occasionally met on
the surface, but as depth was attained
the gold appeared to be   associated with
Mr. Gallinger is expected to return
and start up work in a short time..
DISSOLUTION LIKELY
And An Early Appeal to the
Electorate.
M. P. Stewart of Stewart & Clark, owners of the Nicola stage line, drove up the
river Thursday from Penticton, and left
for Nicola on Friday.
The firm of which Mr. Stewart
member is contemplating running a stage
between here and Hedley, thus making
through connections from Sper
Bridge to the leading gold camp of the
Similkameen.
Mr. Stewart brought word that the legislature had passed the estimates and
that a dissolution seemed probable, owing to the damaging evidence adduced
against several of the cabinet ministers
in the inquiry into the Columbia and
Western land grant of last session.
MINING ASSOCIATION.
A meeting of the Princeton Mining
Association was held in the school house
Wednesday evening, April 29th.
The principal business up for discui
sion was the question of a suitable mee
ing place, which was settled for the time
being by Geo. Aldous, proprietor of the
Hotel Tulameen, offering the use of his
dining room. Mr. Aldous' kind offer
was accepted and a vote of thanks ti
eof i
motion he

W. Knight gave
would bring forward at the
regarding the   appointment of  min
spectors, and   G. E. Winkler of on
garding the provincial mineralogist.
An executive meeting is called for
Monday evening at 7 p. m., above Cook
& Co's store, for the drafting of by-laws.
The next general meeting will be held
Wednesday evening May 6th, at the Tu-
M. Foy and H. W. Harding are working on the Wet Day claim about 22 miles
from here up One Mile Creek, near
Burns' ranch.
They are sinking a 7 x 10 incline shaft
on a big iron showing, which gave encouraging gold assays on the surface.
The croppings indicate a large body of
ore, being nearly 70 feet in width. The
shaft is now down 14 feet, and some fine
looking quartz carrying iron pyrites and
arsenical iron has been struck.
Messrs. Foy and Harding intend spending a month sinking on this promising
showing.
Jas. D'Arcy returned Thursday from
Hedley City.

I numbers is altogether too great,
I and the Star feels that such advertising does the country more barm
than good, and the sooner stopped
the better.
The day may not be far distant
when Hedley camp will give em
ployment to several hundred men,
and we believe there are camps in
the Similkameen that will in future
give employment to more men than
Hedley camp, when proper facilities are given for the cheap mining
and smelting of our ores ; but. a
statement of opinion regarding a
camp's possibilities and a statement
of facts regarding its present employing or producing status, are
two widely different things. In the
one, allowances must be made for
errors in judgment that may arise
from a lack of knowledge as to
what constitutes a valuable ore
body, difficulties in treatment o:
which the party is not cognizant,
and a thousand and one considerations which may enter into
matter. In the other there is no
excuse except the receiving of
correct information by the person
taking the misstatement.

ADVANCE IN COKE.
The action of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Co. in advancing the
price of coke 50 cents per ton immediately after the settlement of
the strike is causing severe criticism, particularly among Boundary
smelter men.
The increase in price is said to
mean an additional expense of $100
a day to several of the smelters in
that district, and as all are smelting low grade ores, the advance
means a serious inroad on their
necessarily small margin of  profit.
The coal company, having a
practical monopoly of the coke
business of the interior, is evidently making good its loss (from the
purse of the coke-buying public)
incurred during its efforts to kill
unionism in southeast Kootenay.
It appears to be a game of
" heads I win, tails you lose," that
the coal company is playing with
the public.
In what way do the miners who
suffered loss during the continuance of a strike they were practically forced into reimburse themselves ?
PERNICIOUS BOOMING.
The statement appears in a recent Boundary paper, credited to a
well known mining man of this section, that 100 men are at work for
the Nickel Plate Company at Hedley camp.
Inquiries made this week regarding the matter show that the actual
number of men at present in the
employ of the company does not exp-
ceed 35.

Sir Oliver Mowat.
The death of Sir Oliver; Mowat
removes one of the most prominent
and most successful of Canada's
great men from the political arena.
His public life went back that far
that he was one of the fathers of
confederation, of whom there are
very few remaining. While he
contested seats for the Dominion
house he was not successful, although he filled a seat in the cabinet of Sir Wilfred Laurier, prior to
accepting the office of Lieut-Governor of Ontario, which he occupied at the time of his death. It was
in Ontario, bis native province,
where he successfully held the premiership so long, and maintained a
government which has been a model in the history of Canada. His
ability as a lawyer was above the
ordinary, to which the many cases,
appealed by him to the Privy Council, and won, amply testify.
He was one of the public men of
Canada whose example may well
be emulated by the younger generations. Of true principle and religious life, he won the highest
honors among his countrymen,
having begun life without any particular advantages, and rose by his
own unaided efforts. None of his
actions in either public or private
life were ever impugned, and his
exceedingly long occupancy of the
premiership of Ontario for 25 years
was unmarred by a single occurrence to his discredit —Vancouver
Ledger.
Henry George.
If all the world loves a lover, as
Emerson says, it also hates a reformer, at least in the reformer's day.
Many cities are likely to claim him
later and to hold in reverence the
places wherein he lived, or worked,
but in his lifetime he is considered
an uncomfortable person. Undeniably he is a disturber. Real reformers are therefore exceptional,
neither high character, devotion
nor unselfishness saving them from
misrepresentation and contumely.
Why in a great wealth-producing
country, heretofore unparalleled,
there should exist, side by side with
vast opulence, the most abject pov
erty "in the centres of civilization,
was the question Henry George set
himself to solve. With painstaking care and patience Mr, George
examined every available argument ofFered to explain the paradox, sifting and rejecting with candid facts and authorities, until driven to the single conclusion that in
the monopoly of land lies the explanation of the riddle. Having
found the cause he searched for the
remedy and believed he had found
it in the Single Tax, a remedy that
could be effectively applied through
a change in the current methods of
taxation, -to whose misapplication
and wrongfulness so much misery
is due.
Before Henry George's day the
wrongfulness of land monoply had
been proclaimed by an authoritative
men, even to the time of Moses.
But of all those who have seen the
injustice, it was reserved for Hei
George to discover and announce
the remedy.
It is easy to see the wrongfulness of a few controlling the valuable portions of the earth's surface,
upon which all men must labor to
live. The Single Taxers hold that
land is in the same category as the
sea, the sunshine and the air, and,
as it is manifestly intended for all
mankind, it is wrong for a few to
withhold it from use for the sake of
taking the unearned value which
the increase of population gives to
land in growing communities.
Henry George saw clearly that
men who were out of employment
against their will, because of opportunities denied them, are forced
to bid against each other for a
chance to work, a sad competition
that brings wages down to the lowest point, and brings poverty where
there should be happiness and
plenty.
The struggle is not only to restore the heritage to those now suffering because deprived of it, but
for the millions of men and women
unborn who must live upon the
earth.—Wm. Lloyd Garrison.
Much is written against compulsory arbitration, but where it has
been given a thorough test it has
been found a success. Surely it is
worth a trial under such conditions.
