RERUNNERS OF THE RAILWA
Coming ..Events Cast their Shadows Before-
Great Northern Railway Officials
Look Over Route.
Tonnage the Great Desideratum, and they Found It
Beyond Expectation—Grades are Easy
Through the Similkameen.
Last Monday evening a party of mining and railroad men came up from Hedley on a reconnoitering tour through the"
district. M. K. Rodgers, manager of the
Daly Reduction Co. at Hedley, W. T.
Morgan, western freight agent of the
Great Northern at Seattle, R. M. Eden,
general superintendent of the Great
Northern at Spokane and Harry Rodgers
of Hedley were the personnel of the
party. Messrs. Morgan and Eden came
into the Similkameen via Midway and
thus had an opportunity of observing
the contour of the country through which
their company will build. Mr. Morgan
was more particularly interested in the
tonnage prospects of the country and
made many inquiries as to coal and metalliferous areas and deposits, their, location and smelter facilities. He will visit
every important camp in the Similkameen and Nicola districts and will confer with geologist Wolf now in the field
here making a technical investigation of
its mineral and manufacturing capabilities.
Mr. Eden is identified with the con
structive and operating departments ot
■ his company. Therefore, the information
he sought related to distances, maps,
trails, heights of land, passes, grades
and topographic peculiarities. Lack of
time prevented his going up the Similkameen river as far as the Roche, but it is
understood that an engineer party will
locate the line west of the Roche
and effect a junction with the party now
working east from Sutnas in the Chilli-
wack district. Mr. Eden sees no insuperable barriers along the whole route of
the V.V. & E., in fact it is%ll coinpara
tively easy to the coast after Anarchist
mountain is passed west of Midway. To
overcome that mountain there is a choice
of three routes—one involving a deflection of 65 miles south, another of 25 miles
and one through the mountain by a succession of tunnels. It is probable that
choice will be made of the second route
which carries a little less than two per
cent, grade.
Many persons have a misconceived notion that crosssiug and recrossing the
international boundary to obviate difficulties in railway construction.will invalidate the charter. It is not so. The powers conferred on the railway commission
recently created by the Dominion government enable that body to deal with
all such matters and there is not the
slightest apprehension that they will refuse the reasonable request to cross as
many times as necessary to complete an
all Canadian line. In eastern Canada
the Canadian transcontinental railway
crosses the international boundary in sevr
eral places and there was no effort at hindrance.
Mr. Eden had all the data regarding
the various Hope passes, only one of
which is deemed impracticable. The distance from Princeton to the fresh water
terminus of the Great Northern at Port
Guichon on the Fraser river is 149 miles.
At this port the coal required for the
Great Northern line of Oriental steamers
will be brought from the Similkameen
and discharged into the ship's bunkers
■by automatic machinery. President Hill's
sagacity in having a fresh water port for
his ships will, from an economic point of
view save much money in having ship's
bottoms scraped. It is almost certain
that coal for the home market will be laid
down at the coast for a little less than $5
a ton by this route. Thus, the people at
the coast will get coal much cheaper and
of superior quality than heretofore.
The V.V. & E., which is synonomous
and coterminous with the Great Northern, is now located 6 miles west of Oro
as shown on a map in Mr. Eden's possession. From that point westward there
is nothing done on location. Not far
from Midway contractors' outfits are in
readiness to begin grading westward
as soon as orders are received from headquarters. Oro is the last point touched
south of the boundary, from whence the
line turns sharply northward into the
Similkameen. Oro is about 30 miles
westerly from Midway.
Both gentlemen were very much surprised at the fruit and agricultural possibilities of the country. They also took
stock of the timber available for tie and
trestle purposes. All the bridges will be
of steel.
At Hedley they inspected the Daly Reduction Co's works and were kindly given
every information by the genial manager,
Mr. Rodgers. For the first time they saw
the now "famous Nickel Plate ore and its
product of gold bricks. The smelter site
aud station facilities were not omitted in
their itinerary of inspection in both of
which President Hill has*private interests.
The immensity of Copper mountain
left no doubt in their minds as to tonnage
derivable from that quarter. At Princeton the Vermilion Forks Co's coal mine
was observed and careful information obtained from Mr. Waterman regarding it.
The impressions conveyed to the visitors
as to the position of Princeton and its
future were summed up gin terms expressive of it being a place of great destiny and natural beauty. They were
gratified beyond anticipation with all
they had seen.
They went up the Tuiameen and on to
Aspen Grove, seeing the celebrated Cou
sin Jack and other properties along the
road. Their visit to Nicola will reveal to
them the proved deposits of coking coal
found there. Great Northern people are
already in possession of huge coal measures in this section which precludes the
possibility of a rival railway hauling any
of that tonnage.
Messrs. Morgan and Eden returned to
their respective abodes at Spokane and
Seattle by way of Spence's Bridge. Both
gentlemen are gifted with that perceptive acumen which so eminently qualifies
them for their unique mission into Similkameen solitudes. Much will depend on
their reports as to the speed with which
construction will be prosecuted this winter. In any case ties and other material
can be procured in advance which will
give employment to many hands.
President Hill of the Great Northern,
maintains stolid indifference as to the
movements of his rival, the C.P.R.—he
just keeps jogging along, making sure of
every step he takes. So far he has won
every move on the railway chessboard.
He has the good will of the people here
because he has not turned a deaf ear to
their wails for a railway, while the B.C.
government and their ally have not given
any heed to the importunate pleadings of
those who have staked their very existence on transportation for the district.
The thousands of investors in all parts of
the world who have put mone) into the
Similkameen and Nicola, will not refrain
from expressions of gladness at the new
and hopeful aspect which Mr. Hill has
lent to the situation.
In a few days Mr. Hill goes to Montreal to attend the annual meeting of the
Granby Smelter Co. at which it is not
improbable the matter of establishing a
smelter in the Similkameen will be considered, the statistics and estimated ore
supply for which are in process of compilation. Meanwhile "Uncle Jim," as he
is popularly known among his thousands
of employees, is doing a little fishing
and helping himself to "punkin" pie at
his chalet on lake Memphremagog down
in Maine. On his return west renewed
activity in the railway arena is anticipated.
Harry McDonnell, freight agent of the
C.P.R., left Greenwood last week for the
Similkameen and will also make inspection on behalf of his company.
LOCAL PARAGRAPHS.
Brief News Notes and Personal Mention of People Passing.,
Thursday, 17th November, is Thanksgiving day.
A. Gallinger came down from the Cousin Jack this week and reports the season's development work about to close.
He still has unshaken faith in the property and will install a compressor,, hoisting plant and stamp mill next season.
The finding of a  blunderbuss revolver
at the  end of the  Tuiameen bridge may j
yet afford a clue to the train robbers and i
the reward of $12,500.    The brigands are'}
still playing  hide and seek with the de- j
tectives.    Hope  pass is a good   runway '
for the villains but as the scent is getting
stale little suspicion would attach to anyone travelling on that trail.
Rev. James Lang left for Kelowna on
Thursday's stage, having separated from
the missionary field here. The sheep are
thus without a shepherd of any denomination. Following the example of the
Apostle Paul, whose occupation was that
of tentmaker, Mr. Lang wielded the
brush and spread the gospel too—he was
earnest, energetic and served the Lord to
some purpose as his works testify.
Sweet autumn! loveliest of the seasons. This is the time of year when the
foliage of tree and shrub don their prettiest tints and the russet colored hills
seen through the hazy air are never so
comely.    Autumn, thy charms are many.
The American fiag has been hoisted on
Canadian soil in the Roche river country
so Jim Snowden says. Call out the troops!
Where's Lord Dundonald ? Uncle Sam
took a slice off the Yukon. Is he going
to take a bite out of the Similkameen?
International diplomatic complications
next.   .
Jack Frost is here in full costume and
still the summer session is not held.
Bert Bryant arrived from the Boundary
last week, having finished his contract on
the Phoenix branch of the V.V. & E.
He reports all the contractors well on to
completion with their work. He is of
opinion that construction in the Similkameen is only a matter of days till it begins.
Waiting for the Railway.
John Mathison of Okanagan Falls
brought in a wagon load of peaches
on Thursday which he grew on his ranch
there. They were simply luscious and
sold readily at 9 cents a pound. The
distance is about 70 miles. Mr. Mathison grows pears, apples, plums, prunes,
quinces, nectarines and apricots. He will
have about two tons of waste fruit this
year which he was unable to market for
want of transportation. He would increase his peach plantation to ten acres
if he thought the ra&oad would be built.
He was advised to increase. Mr. Mathison is one of the most progressive farmers
in the Similkameen and will roll in
wealth when the rail .

Humorous.
He—There are two periods in a man's
life when he doesn't -understand' a-woman. She—What are they ? He—Before
he's married and after he's married.
The boy who was visiting his indulgent
aunt had eaten heartily of the preserves
"Don't you think you've had enough,
Willie ?" she asked. "Don't know," he
replied.- "Don't know!" "Nope. Can't
tell yet," he said "But what do you
think?" "Ain't any use thinking at all.
I^got to know. Thinking don't help any
if you think wrong." "Well, your'e the
most remarkable boy I ever knew," said
his aunt. "When will you know?" 'In
half an hour." "And how will you
know?" "Why, that's easy," replied
the wise boy. "If I ain't sick in half an
hour I'll be sorry I didn't take more, and
if I'm sick I'll be sorry I took so much.
That's the only way to tell that I know."
His aunt admitted that it left no room
for doubt, but she tried to point-out that
it was rather unsatisfactory, to which the
boy merely replied that he wished there
was a better way, but he did'nt know of
any.
Wife—Henry, I am sure young Spoon-
abit means business in coming here to see
Maud. Husband — Nonsense! What
makes you think so ? Wife—He wears a
new necktie every time he comes. Husband—Do you think Maud cares anything for him. Wife—I'm certain she
does. Why. she hasu' eaten an onion all
summer.
A washerwoman applied for help to a
gentleman, who gave her a note to the
manager of a certain club. It read as
follows : "Dear Mr. X.—This woman
wants washing." Very shortly afterward
the answer came back: "Dear Sir—I
dare say she does, but I don't fancy the
job."
"He seems disgusted with life." "I
should think he would." "Why?"
"He's an undertaker."
"You  say   you  earn  more  money by
your pen than  you did a year ago ?"    "I
do."    "How's that?"    "I stopped  writing stories and began addressing envel
opes."
Teacher—Now, then, Tommy, you have
no good excuse for staying away from
school yesterday. Tommy — Well, it
was'nt my fault. Teacher—It wasn't?
Tommy—No ma'am. I done my best to
think up one.
A girl may not be very familiar with
sloops and catboats, but she can always
recognize a smack.
It is a strange thing in art, that an actress must learn to paint before she can
draw.
When their daughters are infants mothers are anxious to keep matches out of
their reach. It's different when they
grow up.
