I RAILWAY POLICY 1
Speech from Throne Contains
Indefinite Reference to
Railway Matters.
Two Ministers have Resigned and the
Socialists are Wavering—Dissolution Nigh.
The speech from the throne delivered
at the opening of the legislative assem
bly contains little of interest to anyone
except the framers of it. For that rea'
son it is not necessary to publish it in
full, giving only the paragraph referring
to the "railway policy " of the government as an example of the indefinite
manner in which the paramount quts,
tion of the day is touched upon. It is i s
-follows: .'*.---
"There is no doubt that the development of important sections of the province, rich in natural resources, cannot
be effected without an extension of our-
railway system, and my government has
under advisement methods by which;
transportation facilities can be secured
for these districts without placing undue
burdens on the provincial exchequer."
That paragraph has been Over a year
in the James bay hatchery and now that
it is out of its shell no fellow can name it
But the fun has begun and two ministers
according to late reports, have turned
their backs on their colleagues. The
next scene in the panorama will find
Richard, like Wolsey, uttering a wail of
remo-s'e ere he dies on the gallows of
fJublic opinion. So perish all men who
pander to the great god of graft and
monopoly instead of serving their country
ffls they made oath to do.
The Socialists have proved a broken
reed on which the groggy government
leant all too heavily throughout its
devious career. They have become arrogant and impetuous since they fondled
that thing called "balance of power."
between the kicking ministers and the
obstreporous socialists the government's
-pulse is slowing down at a frightful pace.
The day of dissolution is at hand. A
.general election—a Liberal government
—railways and development of the Similkameen at last. -.i.:?-—
Exposition Commissioner.
The appointment of a commissioner to
the great Lewis and Clark exposition to
be held in Portland next summer suggests the name of W. J. Snodgrass es
being one most eligible for the position.
His wide acquaintance with men and
commercial interests in Oregon and B.C.
enables him to at once enter upon the
duties, if appointed, with a force and
vigor not present in one who might be a
stranger.    Mr. Snodgrass was a member
of the Oregon state legislature for four
years during which time he was identified with the progress ot the state in
public and personal enterprises. His
interest in the welfare of B.C. has led
him to do yeoman service in political
campaigns, and his ability as speaker is
recognized and in demand at public
meetings. Mr. Snodgrass would worthily
represent the Dominion, the province
and the Similkameen at the Portland exposition/   I	
The* Premier's New Policy.
In the Boundary Creek Times of Feb.
10 the following interesting information
is gleaned,: "In the last provincial election the: Great Northern Railway Co.
were induced by E.'V. Bodwell, K.C., to
come to McBride's assistance. McBride
or rather Bodwell, believes..in going the
whole hog and strings are being pulled
to line up the . Grand Trunk Pacific and
the C.P.R. on the side of the McBride
'goVejnmeht." The G.T.P. officials are
men of experience and Mr. Morse is now
oii.the coast to size up the situation and
satisfy himself that Mr. Bodwell"s man,;
Friday, is strong enough<to deliver the
goods. The C.P.R. too are getting into
the game. A Mr. Loss, who had an;
option on the Midway and Vernori
charter, has acquired the Nicola and!
Similkameen charter and is asking for
authority..to extend the line from Prince-
torijto -Midway. He is going to the provincial, government for aid and it is sem'-
officially s|a$ejd .that hcis:acting for the
C.P.R. It Tsjalso rumored that Loss is
behind the McLean Bros, and in the
event of them getting anything in the
shape of subsidies that will be a temptation to the C.P.R., that company, through
Mr. Loss, will take over McLean Bros'
[iSteirests....   ... }*$$*■ -
McBride'is a versatile soul. Not only
is he going to get three powerful companies buiidin"g.-railways (on paper) but he
is going to catch, with a big irrigation
■scheme, some of the kicking1 members.
He is going to borrow JSi.oop.ooo for irrigation purposes in the interior: This is
a scheme that is likely to appeal to L. W.
ShatforM the local member for Similkameen. He has been threatening to kick
pvftthe traees-|bur*-*jiow he and his brother hSve acquired the big Ellis estate
he may. be anxiously looking- for a slice
of the million." ;• •■''
j The pre'sent year 'will witness'considerable railroad.,-building and it is evident that the Canadian Pacific is tired of
having the Great Northern invade its
territory at every possible point. It is
announced1 thafD. C. Corbin, who built
the Spokane Falls and Northern and who
is backed by the C.P.R., has a charter
and is to construct a' Ifne from some convenient point on the* Crow's Nest line to
Spokane. As sbon as the weather is favorable wonc will begin on the grading of the road.

There is no doubt the intention of the
government is to supply a"s many telephones as the line will bear and as soon
as a resident manager is appointed the
instruments will be forthcoming for as
many customers as can be accoinmo
dated. Mr Henderson has his office in
Victoria, which is too far away for efficient management, hencexjthe necessity
for a local resident manager.
The annual meeting of the Canadian
Association—-for-the"Prevention of Consumption will- be held in Ottawa on the
15th March next. The afternoon will be
devoted to the routine business of the
association. In the evening a lecture
wilt be delivered -by Dr.. Adami of Montreal on some phase of the crusade against
consumption. His Excellency the governor-general will preside on the occasion. It might be well for the association to consider "the advisability of establishing a sanitarium in the Similkameen where the curative properties of the
climate cannot be excelled.

It is related in a recent Seattle paper
that a Miss McNeil hailing from the Similkameen had got stranded in that wicked
city and was in hard luck owing to the
desertion ofrber recently acquired husband. In telling her tale of woe to the

was formerly engaged to a Sandon merchant who also left her to worry along
life's rugged pathway with a perforated

THXT '• RAILWAY POLICY."
One  short  paragraph  is all that
Premier  McBride devotes   to   his
vaunteaj' railway policy" in  the
speech from the throne delivered at
the opening  of the legislature last
week.    In  that  paragraph he nei-
, ther defines nor forecasts  a policy,
he does not even throw out an olive
branch of hope to the poor mortals
who all these past years have been |
anxiously waiting and watching for
some   legislative railway  measure
which would end the torturous suspense.     Dead to   every   sense   of
honor  which constitutes a genuine
promise with honest men, and dead
to  the   urgent entreaties of thousands whose labor and investments
. are an earnest of the great  natural
wealth   of   the   Similkameen,   the
premier talks and struts with that
imperious    indifference    which   is
characteristic of an  animated  lie.
He has not the manliness to resign
nor   has   he a gentleman's courage
to apologize.     Little wonder  that
his cabinet  is  tottering.    No  surprise would be caused  if some providential visitation effaced him and
his  ministry forever from political
life   and   substituted   therefor   an
honest    and   progressive   govern?
ment.
, The electors of Similkameen gave
their support to the successful Conservative candidate in the last provincial election in full assurance
from him that a coast to Kootenay
railway measure would be introduced and that it would receive his
support and endorsation. The second session has now begun, besides there was the promised summer railway session which neither
begun nor ended, and still there is
no railway measure. A few empty
words in a meaningless paragraph
is the summing up of a railway
policy which was a campaign plank
and the subject of innumerable promises by the premier's followers.
Is it not the nadir of ingratitude
and the basest deception to thus
dilly-dally with people whose fortune, aye existence, hangs upon the
government's yea or nay in regard
to a railway through the Similkameen ? Other portions of the province are similarly affected.
Jt is well known that the McBride
administration is locked in tbe
embrace  of   the   greatest   railway
monopoly the world has ever known
and that no good  thing can  proceed from it which  is not in accord
with   the   interests   of    this   all-
devouring   railway   octopus.     At
the very mention of its name men
and  newspapers tremble and tory
governments nod and bend in obeisance to its every behest.    Its fund
of corruption was never so low as
not to find political    dupes with
whom  to   thwart opposing enterprise.    Thus it is with this unholy
alliance of political  libertines and
railway  monopolists   the Similkameen  has not had railway communication  before  now.    This condition  will   not   change or improve
until  there   is   an   administration
which will not connive with or be
subject to monopoly.
Signs are not wanting of an early
dissolution    and   another   general
election in this politically perturbed
province.    The refractory Socialists
and a wobbling ministry will precipitate a welcome death to an untimely birth.    Who, of all the electors  would  prolong the life of an
administration   which' has  heaped
incompetency   to   instability ?    Or
who of the intelligent people in this
province wish   to be governed by a
puling majority  which   has always
suckled that monster—graft.  Away
with them !    When representatives
of the people   become   so callous
as to  forsake  their constituents in
their hour   of misfortune  and lend
themselves  to  an antagonistic monopoly any means of self-protection
seem iustifiable.    But one infallible
right  electors  have  is   to turn the
rascals  out   the  first  opportunity.
Away with all such politicians !

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The question  of establishing a school
of mines in  this  province is favorably
advocated  by   the  Nelson  Daily News.
. Only  one   newspaper in the province is
opposed to a school of  mines,   but   it
must not be allowed to balk progress and
education.

The Vermilion  Forks  Co. are mining
an excellent coal for domestic purposes
which is sold  at the tunnel mouth at $3
per ton and delivered by R. Hewat at $1
I  per ton load.
The Tuiameen Sunday school heartily
thank Percy Rowlands for large contributions of literature.
Work on the Granite Creek Gold
Group is being carried on in spite of extreme cold at that altitude. Ore character is changing from a pellucid quartz to
that of a smoky blue and is highly mineralized. Assays have not been made
recently but under expert examination
values are easily discernible.
Rich ore has been struck in the shaft

The 10th of February was the monthly
pay day at the Granby and Montreal &
Boston mines. The two companies are
estimated to have distributed about $75 -
000 in wages at mines and smelters.
A Greenwood syndicate, organized by
W. H. Jeffrey, M.E., has purchased the
Simplex claim, near the Skylark mine,
the transaction being on a cash basis.
The acquirement of the Monarch group
©f claims at Ppoenix by the Granby Co.
for $160,000 adds what has long been one
of the best groups in Phoenix to the
holdings of the big company.

HUMOROUS.
Baggs—What!   You   and   your    wife
never quarrel? Waggs—Well, we haven't
quarrelled during the last three weeks.
Baggs—How's that ?   Waggs—We're not
' on speaking terms.
"Well, Casey," said Wagley, "I hear
the crops are so poor in Ireland that they
can't even afford to keep scarecrows
there." "The truth's notinye ["replied
Casey. "Oh, come now, you know very
well they haven't any scarecrows there.''
"Haven't we, though? Shure, many's
the time I've gathered the eggs o'them."
"He's from Missouri, isn't he?" "I
don't know. Why ?" "I told him I was
a better fighter than he was, but he
wouldn't believe it until I showed him."
There is a little fellow in one of the
Los Angeles schools who has gained
world-wide reputation by his quaint remarks. This is his latest. The teacher
asked him for a definition of responsibility the other day. "Responsibility?"
he replied. "Why, I don't know 'zactly
what Mr. Webster calls it, but I kin give
you a example. S'pose all the buttons
what a feller's s'penders is fastened to
come off, all except one. Why, what a
awful responsibility there'd be on that
button."
Willie—Pa, what do they make talking
machines of? His father—The first one
was made out of a rib, my son.
"There are six necessities, you know,
for a happy marriage." "What are
they?" "First, a good husband." "And
the others ?" "The other five are money."
Jinks—What's the idea of sending your
family away ? Winks—For their sum
mer holiday. Jinks—But you're staying
behind yourself! Winks—Well, hang it
all! I guess I want a holiday as well as
they do.
The class was told to write an essay on
honesty. This was Jimmy Green's essay
"Some boys is honester than others; and
there's no way to tell them apart unless
you say you've left your knife somewhere
and watch them jump for it. The one
that jumps last is the honestest one."
Kean—Isn't your wife afraid to drive
that horse ? Steam—Not at all. It's the
people she meets who are scared.
First Passenger—Would you be good
enough to lend me your spectacles a
moment ? Second Passenger—Certainly,
sir, with pleasure. First Passenger—Oh,
thanks. Now, as you can no longer read
your newspaper, will you please have the
kindness to pass it over to me?
Upon one of his tours Bishop Potter
spent a few days at the home of a prominent churchman. The latter's wife took
particular pains in making the bishop's
room worthv of the guest, and among
other things intended for his comfort put
a fine silver toilet set on the bureau. The
bishop, however, preferred his own, and
transferred the set provided to a drawer.
The consequence was that when the
hostess went to the bishop's room after
his departure the silver set was missing.
She worried for several days, then finally
summoned up courage to write a very
apologetic letter to the bishop, asking if
by any chance he had found any of the
articles among his luggage. There was
an immediate and characteristic reply.
The telegram read as follows: "Poor,
but honest. Look in the washstand
drawer."
"Lucy," asked the teacher, "what is
the meaning of 'succinct'?" "It means
short, ma'am." "Give an example of its
use."   "A rabbit has a succinct tail."
Little Willie—Say, pa, what is a born
diplomat ? Pa—A born diplomat, my
son, is a man who knows a great deal
that he doesn't tell his wife.
