WANT" IRON HORSE"
Railway Committee Meets on
Tuesday After which
Grading Begins.
Contractors are Ready the Only Delay
is Legislation—Starting Point
the Question.
A telegram from Duncan Ross, M.P.,
states that railway legislation will be on
next Tuesday in the house to enable the
V.V. & E. to deviate south of international boundary. While he anticipated
strong opposition he believed it would
pass. When this matter is settled it is
hoped the last straw will have been removed and the ever memorable struggle
and delay be ended. Midway or Republic will be the starting point, according
to legislation afforded. Send along the
iron horse !
A prominent Greenwood man in touch
with Great Northern officials says that
the line from Republic to Oroville would
not be built, but that the connection
would be made from Midway west to
Oroville, taking in Chesaw and Myers
creek district en route.
The Palmer Mountain Prospector of
Loomis, says: "Up in the Similkameen
the regular surveying corps is going over
the ground in a businesslike manner and
laying out a line tor the forthcoming
graders. Several reports are current that
contracts for construction have been let.
That the road is to be built, and built
right away, there is no question."
A special telegram to the Vancouver
World says: The memorable fight against
the Corbin railway charter in 1898 is
likely to be repeated in connection with
the application of the V.V. & E. for certain amendments to the charter, the bill
for which has been introduced by D.
Ross. Interested parties are getting up
opposition. Hill owns the V V. & E-
charter and has arranged to build 160
miles of railway from Phoenix to Princeton this year. The line will be continued
to the coast and the plans show the entire
line from Cascade to Vancouver in Canadian territory, excepting a short portion
around Sidley (Anarchist) mountain,
where a turn into the States is made to
secure a low grade. As there is a strong
feeling in parliament in favor of railway
completion the legislation asked for is
almost sure to pass."
L. E. Shields, of Shields & Sims, railroad contractors, who are in charge of
most of the railroad building for the
Great Northern, left last Saturday for St.
Paul to confer with the officials of the
road on the building of the V.V. & E.
in the Similkameen. He will return to
Spokane in a few days when the plans of
the company will be made known.
STUPID  OPPOSITION
Amendments to the V.V. & E.
Railway Charter to be
Stoutly Opposed.
Board of Trade Lends its Weight in
Strong Resolution to Combat
Evil Influences.
The inscrutable ways of certain members of parliament and editors should be
the subject of psychical research, for,
wherein is there either sense or reason in
their blind opposition to the construction
< f the V.V. and E. through the Similkameen. President Hill offers to build this
road without subsidy, without aid of any
kind, practically all-Canadian in route
and coast terminal, in doing which he
asks permission to deviate his line south
of the international boundary into Washington to obviate Anarchist mountain,
:which is very difficult to overcome. Yet
there are members of parliament and
editors so mulish as to buck such a rational proposition, even to the hurt or
ruin of a great mineral district. It seems
superfluous in this enlightened era to
send resolutions to a capable and trustworthy representative but he has leagued
against him the powers of monopoly and
great corporative influence which must be
combatted by every legitimate means.
A telegram received by A. E. Howse from
Duncan Ross, M P., stated that the bill
in his care would be warmly contested in
committee, upon which information the
boards of trade here and at Hedley sent
resolutions to the member.
An extraordinary meeting of the board
of trade was held on Thursday at which
the following members were present:
Messrs. Cowan, Webb, Thomas, Murdoch,
Jackson, Lyall, Summers, Waterman,
Hall, Bell and Wright. The special
object of the meeting was to introduce
a resolution giving expression to the
board's earnest desire to reinforce the
member for Yale Cariboo in his efforts to
secure amendments to the V.V. & E.
charter from the railway committee of
the house of commons. All the members expressed themselves in strong and
unequivocal terms upon the attitude
of opposition taken by rival charter
owners.
The following resolution was adopted
and wired to the member for Yale-
Cariboo at Ottawa, who has charge of the
bill before the committee : "The Princeton board of trade urges upon Duncan
Ross, M.P., the necessity of the railway
committee granting amendments to the
V.V. & E. charter, which will assure the
immediate construction of the road. Contractors are all ready to commence building and  surveys   nearly completed.    It'

CHURCH OF ENfiUND
Parish Formed and Work Laid
Out  in Advance of
the Railway.
Guild Formed by Women Whose Good
Works Prove them to Belong to
Church Militant.
Ven. Archdeacon Pentreath arrived
from Vancouver on Saturday and held
services morning and pypning in the\
court house and in the afternoon baptized two children. On Monday evening
a meeting was held in the board of trade
rooms when a Church of England parish
was organized, to include the town site,
.arTdTobe known as St. Cuthbert's parish
—St. Cuthbert was a British bishop of
the 7th ceniiixju.
Ronald Hewat and Dr. ..Schr^n were
elected churchwardens and E. BTTBall
and A. Hewat sidesmen. E. Waterman
was elected delegate to the synod.
The archdeacon announced that a grant
had been made for a missionary to serve
at present, Princeton and Hedley and the
outlying districts, to be supplemented by
contributions from the people, and that
there was prospect of securing a good
man.
The parish owns a lot on Tapton ave
nue and it is probable a small building
will be erected in the near future. The
archdeacon has never been here before,
his first impressions being very favorable
both as to surroundings and people of
the town. His sermons were powerful
and highly instructive, the large audience following him intently throughout.
The venerable gentleman is a gifted
singer, his deep, sonorous voice being
very effective. He left on Thursday's
stage and will return soon after the regular minister arrives.
St. Cuthbert's ladies guild in connection with the church was organized on
Tuesday at the home of Mrs. Lyall. The
archdeacon presided and the following
officers were elected: President, Mrs.
Lyall; secretary, Mrs. Hewat; treasurer,
Mrs. Waterman. It was decided to meet
fortnightly on Fridays, from 2 to 5 p.m.
at the homes of the various members.
The present object is to work for the erection of a church. The ladies will take
orders for mending and making articles
and a supper and dance is contemplated on
June 30. Any member will be glad to
receive orders for work and during the
stirring times of railway construction the
guild may be expected to fill many orders in the goodly part it has chosen.
Subpoenas have been  issued  for the
court of assize to be held in Kamloops
Tuesday, 16th inst, Litigation involving
the Olympia mineral property on Copper
mountain will be commenced.
NICOU ALSO IN LINE
The  Fiat has Gone to Member to Make Fight for
Dear Life.
Railway Committee at Ottawa Object
of Intense Anxiety for Two Big
Railway Corporations.
The following resolution from Nicola
was sent to the member for Yale-Cariboo
at Ottawa as a protest against the opposition to railway legislation now required:
"The citizens of Nicola, both Liberals
and Conservatives, in mass meeting assembled, urge the immediate necessity of
adopting the V.V. & E. amendment introduced by you. This wonderfully rich
section depends wholly upon this bill to
relieve present stagnation. We want
competitive railways and do not fear
American competition. It is life or death
to us. Make this the fight of your
life."
The whole Similkameen and Nicola
districts are enthusiastic over Hill's approach notwithstanding the efforts of a
few insignificant knockers and two pro-
monopoly coast newspapers.
Jos. Marshall and Geo. Waldschmidt
will arrive on today's stage, the latter
being accountant for E. Voigt.
Bert Bryant, sister and neice arrived
from Spokane last Sunday and will permanently reside in Princeton. It is understood Mr. Bryant will conduct the
Princeton hotel in future, a transfer of
license being applied for. He needs no
introduction to the local public as he is
well known as a prospector and good citizen for years past.
Hewat Bros, have a contract for street
levelling from the V.F.M. Co. and also
one for filling on which C. E. Thomas
wiU erect a warehouse.
W. G. Tanner, a prominent mining man
from the coast is making examination of
this section with a view to investment.
He is pleased with the prospects
Thos. H. Murphy, Luke Gibson, R.
Hewat and C. Schisler, esquires, are gazetted fence viewers for this district.
Government agent Murray of Nicola
was in town last Saturday on official business.
One of the Great Northern contractors
recently in Princeton said : "That is a
fine country we drove thiough, and I
think it is certain a road - will be built at
once. The road to Princeton is about
140 or 145 miles long, either way, but I
think a little better grade can be had
from Republic."
Hughie Campbell is in town from Hedley and will camp hereabouts in readiness for the boom. Though well on to
the allotted span' he is as frisky as a colt.

THE V.V. & E. BILL.
The bill introduced by Duncan
Ross, M.P., in the house of commons, recently, to make certain
amendments to the V.V. & E. charter held by the Great Northern Co.,
is likely to meet with strenuous
opposition from the McLean Bros.,
who control a rival charter, known
as the "Coast-Kootenay." The
Coast-Kootenay scheme has never
been taken seriously into consideration inasmuch as its promoters are
lightweights in the railway arena
and have never given any evidence
of their ability to build the railway
proposed. They are believed to be
mere decoys and as such the railway committee of the house ought
not to allow them to hamper bona
fide owners of a charter who have
given every evidence of their intention to construct the railway.
President Hill has made public
announcement of his desire to build
direct to the coast, choice of two
routes being offered west of Princeton, to which point the permanent
survey has been made. A reconnaissance of the Similkameen and
Tuiameen routes is being made,
the latter having preference by explorers generally. For the mere
deviation from the all-Canadian
route at Anarchist mountain to
avoid costly structure and the acquisition of better grades, there can
be no sensible reason to withhold
legislation which will enable President Hill to accomplish those objects. Every individual and every
public body in tbe country not subject to the influence of monopoly
will endorse Mr. Ross in his fight
to secure the amendments desired.
The very fact of a competing line
of railway coming to the Similkameen ought to be incentive enough
for any legislator who aims at the
people's welfare to fight the battle
of his life in now overpowering the
monopoly masked by the McLean
Bros. Mr. Ross will, no doubt, be
again the stalwart he has always
shown himself to be in matters of
this kind and again win a victory
for the people.
The Vancouver World "believes
that the organization of a live mining exchange would do much for
the city and for the province and
would probably help to make Van
couver the recognized centre for
Similkameen investors. There is
sufficient enterprise in Vancouver
to ensure its success if once organized.    It but awaits a starter."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
There ought to be some remedy
speedily applied to the slothful conduct of business in tbe government
departments at Victoria. Complaints
are continually made of vexatious
d lays in the transaction of busir
hess with that department. In the
issuance of mineral certificates of
improvement three months have
been known to elapse after all the
legal requirements have been complied with before the document
was in the hands of the applicant.
The mine owner and prospector
have enough of unavoidable obstacles in their rugged path without
thrusting" the altogether needless
one of careless delay before them.
Instead of being a positive hindrance to the mine owner and prospector in procuring their titles the
government ought by every means
accelerate and assist them in at
least the mere clerical part it has to
perform.
The recent exposure as the result of the investigation regarding
the disposal of land at Kitamaat,
disclosed very lax methods in the
Lands and Works department. In
fact, so careless was the supervision
of the chief and his deputy that
a minor official took advantage of
it and did departmental business on
his own account. If this sort of
thing is permitted under the very
eye of the government at Victoria
what must the discrepancies be in
some of the far removed offices in
various parts of the province where
there is no eye except that of the
occasional inspector. In a thousand ways an official may violate
his oath of office and make himself
injurious to the department he represents—only an investigation
can expose all this and it would be
well if there were more of them.
When the people pay for courteous,
honest and efficient service they
should have it or know the reason
why.
There appears to be a misinterpretation of the spirit and letter of
the law regarding the publication
of legal notices in the local paper.
Last fall an applicant for coal lands
in this vicinity advertised in a
Kamloops paper. There is a possibility of disputed title in regard
to these lands, in which case there
will be no difficulty in making out
a plea of non-compliance with the
statutes. The law is so explicit
that no one need err. It reads :
" And in a newspaper published
and circulating in the district wherein the land lies." If anyone would
hazard his application by ignoring the law he cannot complain of
not being advised.

Daisy—Did Henry kneel when he pro
posed to you ? Nelly—No, he made a
standingoffer.
Mrs. Enpeck—Here, such spelling as
those printers do! They have called
your shipping clerk, Mr. Brown, your
"skipping" \ clerk. Enpeck — Which
chanced to be right in this case, for I
learned this morning at the office that he
had skedaddled with all the money he
could get hold of.
Look here. "P. Burns" this meat is
half bone." "You are mistaken, sir,
that is good meat." "Botheration! Do
you suppose I don't know bone when I
see it ? I say this is bone!" "Yes, cer-
tiinly, that's bone. The bone is bone,
but the meat isn't. You said the meat
was half bone."
"There   is    no   resisting   that   fellow
Jones."      "What's    he    up   to   now?'
"Bought  bis   wife   an   automobile and
coaxed an. insurance company into issuing a policy on her life."

Still make the greatest showing.

Smart Lawyer—My boy, do you know
the nature of an oath ? Small Urchin—
Yessir. Smart Lawyer—You do, eh ?
Now, how does it happen that one so
young as you knows the nature of an
oath ? Small urchin—'Cause we've got a
furnace in our house, mister.
The elderly maiden had recently in
herited a 640-acre farm. Later a young
man from an adjoining village appeared
upjn the scene. "Will you be my wife?'
he asked. "I love you with all an
heart.." "For the land's sake!'' ex
claimed the giddy old girl.
"Mamma," remarked Dorsie, "if I get
married when I grow up will I have a
husband like papa?" "I suppose so,
dear," said mamma. "An' if I don't get
married I'll be a old maid, like cousin
Caarlotte, won't I ?" 'I guess you will,
pat. Why?" "O, nothin'—only I wis'

Auctioneer—This book, gentlemen,
which is now offered, is especially valuable, as it contains marginal notes in the
handwriting of the great Alexander von
Humboldt. A hundred marks offe:ed.
Going! going! gone. It is yours, sir."
Purchaser eagerly opens the volume.
The autograph marginal note by the renowned scholar reads as follows: "This
book is not worth the paper it is printed
