RAILROAD SIGNALS.
Railway Committee Adjourns—C.P.R.
Contract Said to be Let.
There has been a slump in railway news
for the past ten days, in all probability
due to the fight now going on before the
railway committee. The tension of feeling here is almost at the eruptive point.
If President Hill be denied the right of
deflecting his line south of the boundary
one of the bitterest railway wars known
will have begun, in which "Jim," it
is .~afe to saj', will again out general his
enemies.
Duncan Ross, M.P., wires that hearing
of amendments before railway commit
tee was adjourned to the 30th inst. ard
that the C.P.R. is putting up a strong
fight. Mr. Ross has won much favorable
comment from M.P's and the press for
his valiant struggle.
Activity in C.P.R. construction circles
affords some clue to the report from Ot
tawa that the contract had been let from
Spence's Bridge to Nicola. Plans and
profiles of the line have been fyled with
the registrar at Kamloops.
It cannot well be anticipated that work
on the V.V. & E. will begin before parliament ratifies or annuls Mr. Ross's bill
on the 30th. Whatever the fate of that
bill may be Mr. Hill has privately intimated that his road will be in Princeton
early next year and he -means it.
Great Northern engineers are camptd
a few miles below Princeton working
westward on the final location of the
V.V. & E. It is expected they will be at
Princeton next week when it is likely
terminal facilities, such as yard, switches,
depot, roundhouse and the many other
requisites for a well conducted railway
will be decided upon.

AMENDMENTS ASKED TO V.V. & E. CHARTER
History Repeats Itself in the Blind Opposition
of Monopolists to President Hill's
Similkameen Railway*
Review of the Railway Question as it Affects Southern B.C.
by the Member for Yale-Cariboo—Chartermongers
and Political Grafters Build Railways
in Their Minds.
Thefollowingletterfrom D. Ross, M.P., j
is a lucid exposition of the railway ques- j
tion now revived by certain amendments
sought from the railway committee of the
house of commons. Legislation is requested by the owners of the V.V. & E.
charter to remove any doubt as to the
right carried in said charter to expropriate
and thus avoid holdups on right-of-way,
to ask permission to deflect the railway
south of the international boundary at
Anarchist mountain and to build from
New Westminster to Olivers on the Fraser river. The right of expropriation is
included in Dominion charters, but President Hill foresees stubborn resistance to
his road and to make assurance doubly
sure and avoid expensive litigation he
seeks remedy. His requests are r/either
unreasonable nor illogical and should be
granted.    Mr. Ross says :
"In 1898 D. C. Corbin made application
to the Dominion parliament for a charter
to construct a railway from Marcus on
the Spokane Falls & Northern along the
Kettle river to the Boundary mining district. The people directly interested in
the Boundary were anxious that this charter should be granted as the initial step
in securing transportation facilities, without which no further development could
be carried out. The application was opposed by the Canadian Pacific railway
company and not only was there a strong
lobby maintained at Ottawa but the services of newspapers friendly to the Canadian corporation were enlisted.
The principle involved in the Corbin
application was the right of an important mining district in B.C. to secure the
bast transportation facilities. That right
has never been denied any other portion
of the Dominion. The lobby was too
strong and the Corbin charter did not
pass. But the road was built. Corbin
sold his interests to the Great Northern
and that company, after encountering
many difficulties, succeeded in constructing a road from Marcus, west through
Grand Forks to Phoenix. Today the
Great Northern is operating the road Mr.
Corbin asked permission to build.
Have the prophecies of the C.P.R. Co.
been  fulfilled ?   Instead of draining the
wealth of Canada into the United States
the Corbin road is draining the wealth of
the United States into Canada. Not a
pound of Boundary creek ore is treated
in U.S. smelters ; the ore of Republic,
Wash., is being treated at the smelters of
Grand Forks and Greenwood ! When
the C.P.R. b-gan hauling ores from the
Boundary mines to the smelters the rate
on ore from the Granby mines at Phoe
nix to the smelter at Grand Forks was 75
cents a ton. With the advent of the
Great Northern into the diatrict this rate
was reduced from time to time, until today the rate is less than 25 cents a ton.
On a daily output of 3000 tons, which the
Granby mines has now, or will soon
reach, this will mean a direct saving of
$1500 a day to that company alone. A
saving of 50 cents a ton !
The politicians and the charter mongrels built many railways on paper into
the Similkameen. The Great Northern
is now prepared to build a bona fide railway from the Boundary to the coast.
Contracts will be let in a few days to construct the road to Princeton and later on
this road will be continued to the coast.
The railway will be built under the V.V.
& E charter. There is a possibility that
this charter is defective in minor details.
A measure was recently introduced in the
Dominion parliament to cure these defects. No sooner was this done than the
same old flag waved; the same old newspapers are publishing the same old arguments and the same old bogie man is
masquerading in the same old clothes.
In no other portion of the Dominion
would the suggestion that trade is to be
regulated by destroying railway competition be tolerated for a single moment.
Surely it is not unreasonable to demand
for the district most directly interested
the same freedom accorded other portions of the Dominion in the development of a railway policy.
We must not try to ship low grade ore
on high grade railways. The construction of a railway from Robson to Midway
by the C P.R. shows great pluck and enterprise in railway building, but it is not
the way to:earry ore. It is a high grade
road of 2 per cent for large portion of its
distance. On a grade of )4 per cent an
ordinary locomotive can easily haul 40
cars of ore. On a grade of 1 per cent
this is reduced to 20 cars and on a grade
of 2 per cent to 10 cars. One C.P.R.
engine can haul fiotn Fernie to the Boundary smelters about 10 cars of coke; a
Great Northern engine of the same power
hauls from Fernie to the Boundary smelters 30 cars. This difference in grades is
responsible for the reduced price paid by
the Granby smelting company today.
Mr. Hill asks for neither subsidy nor
favor of any kind; all he asks is to be
left free to give southern B.C., the
Similkameen, the best lines on the lowest grades and thus insure low transportation charges. The Dominion government heavily subsidized Mackenzie &
Mann's railway in the Rainy river district. This railway runs in and out along
the international boundary line to avoid
difficulties of construction and parliament and the country endorsed it. The
fight of today is the Corbin fight of 1898
over again. It is a fight for that railway
competition which is not denied other
portions of the Dominion and it is a fight
in which it is not unreasonable to expect
all good British Columbians and all good
newspapers to unite.
DUNCAN ROSS."

Copper Mountain Mining Deal.
It may be taken as fact that the negotiations now pending for the Ada B, Silver Dollar, Centre Star Fraction, Diamond Dot and Orinoco will be completed
in due time. It is known that purchaser
and vendors are all agreed the only remaining link to complete the transaction
being the report of expert Williams. He
is expected on the ground shortly to make
a thorough investigation which, it is not
likely, will reverse the verdict of many
competent mining men who have already
favorably pronounced upon these properties. With the completion of this deal
Copper mountain will have acquired the
distinction of enticing rival capital from
all over the continent and the prospect
of three smelters being supplied from its
immeasurable ore deposits.
Winkler & Mohr, real estate and mining brokers, have opened an office in the
Silverson block and are now ready for
business. Parties having town or farm
property for sale should call and list.    *
W. E. Thompson, capitalist, is in town
for a few days and may possibly invest

and a fondness for the place has developed within him which may result in
permanent residence. He is now making
rapid recovery from an accident which
lamed him about a year ago.
Wm. Bryant of Hedley has taken a land j
location adjoining the old Wheeler ranch

BLIND OPPOSITION TO RAILWAY
Duncan Ross, M.P., contributes
an interesting and instructive article
to the Vancouver World dealing
with the V.V. & K. charter and tbe
railway problem generally. He
derides the fanatical opposition to
.President Hill's railway into the
Similkameen and characterizes it as
an insult to the intelligence of British Columbians. He points to the
Canadian railways reaching out to
Spokane, Seattle, Duluth, Chicago
and St. Paul and nobody complains.
But when the Great Northern trys
to gain admittance to the Similkameen a wail goes up that trade will
be diverted and alien towns built
•up.    Inconsistency to the death !
The member for Yale-Cariboo is
a patriot in the true sense of the
word when he advocates the admission of a foreign competing line
of railway into the Similkameen.
Waving the old flag and shouting
"Canada for the Canadians" is an
emotional and frothy patriotism
which has often been employed
when some sinister purpose was to
be served. But Mr. Ross advocates
the open door for railways because
he loves his country and would free
it from the blighting domination of
a gigantic monopoly. He presents
incontestable figures to show that
the Boundary would still have been
undeveloped but for the competition of the Great Northern and the
consequent reduction of tonnage
rates on low grade ore. Compare
his practical patriotism with that of
a former member for Yale-Cariboo,
J. A. Mara, (Conservative) who recently at a board of trade meeting
in Victoria trotted out the old bugaboo that President Hill wanted to
build up American towns at the
expense of the Similkameen. Everyone knows that President Hill's
patriotism begins and ends in business, caring nothing for nationality
or towns. Mr. Mara cares nothing
about the Similkameen or the province so long as his own narrow,
selfish ends and those of his pet
ally—monopoly—are served.
Mr. Ross says of the Similkameen: "A greater Boundary district is anxiously waiting for a railway and the day is not far distant
when Similkameen will be the banner mining district of British Columbia."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The action of the board of trade
relative to the appointment of a
resident constable 'in Princeton has
been heartily approved by many
law abiding citizens. Usually
Princeton is one of the best behaved towns to be found on any
frontier, but there have been occasions when the need of a resident
constable was keenly felt. Frequently the present occupant of
tbe position is absent for days
and is not a resident within the
town limits at any time excepting
government office hours. As a
justice of the peace remarked, the
best time to check lawlessness is in
the bud and thus save the town an
unsavory reputation which might
deter many respectable people from
coming here. The appointment of
a thoroughly capable and dutiful
man will repress the menacing attitude of the bully or desperado as
he may crop up, besides causing a
healthy respect for laws generally.

Some years ago Ppillips Brooks was
recovering from an illness, and was denying himself to all visitors; when Robert G. Inlgersoll called. The bishop received l$m at once "I appreciate this
very inu£h," said Mr. Ingersoll; but why
do you see me when you deny yourself
to your friends?" "It is this way," said
the bishop: "I feel confident of seeing
my friends in the next world, but this
may be my last chance of seeing you."
Jack Huggin—Won't you give me a
kiss, Dollie ? Dollie Duggan—Would it
be good taste? Jack Huggin—Don't
know. I can tell better after you give it
to me.
Before he was raised to the peerage
Lord Kelvin was one day discovered by a
friend experimenting with a long coil of
wire. He was making deep sea soundings. His friend immediately became
interested in watching the great scientist
at work, says a biographer, and asked :
"What is that for?" "Oh," answered
Lord Kelvin, "this is for making soundings." "Ah," said the other, with the
evident intention of cracking a joke at
the scientist's expense, "what sort of a
note does it give off?" "The deep C of
course,"answeted Lord Kelvin,promptly.
"Tell me, Harry," said May Bright
ley's admirer to her young brother, "who
is this other fellow that's been calling on
your sister?" "I don't know his name,''
replied Harry, "I used to call him 'April
showers.'
'What for?'
Because he
brings May flowers."
Superintendent Foster of the New Orleans Street railway compan-, formerly
with the Boston & Northern at Sale.n,
tells the following story of the days when
"spotters" were much in evidence on the
cars : A young fellow who had c'largt o
one of the Salem Willows cars during the
rush season was suspected of more than
the ordinary "knocking down." He
turned in his trips at the Salem office ai d
the cashier, who was aware of what was
going on, said : "Thank you." The next
trip he turned in still less, and the polite
cashier thanked him again. The next
trip he turned in still less, and the polite
cashier thanked him again The next
trip he turned in still less money, but the
cashier was there with his smiling ' thank
you." "What the deuce are you thank
ing me for?" asked the conductor. "For
bringing in the car," replied the cashier.
W'illie—Yes, uncle, she is beautiful,
and we should have been married but for
one unhappy circumstance. Uncle—
Poor fellow ! What was it ? Willie—
She refused me.
