TELEPHONE CHANGES
\
*-j
Old System was Unsatisfactory
. for the Public and had
Serious Defects.
Superintendent Stevens Makes Explanation—Conditions Changed in
Public Interest'.
The Star gladly publishes a letter from;
the superintendent of the government
tilephone line of which the following
paragraph forms the text-: '*>
" The Star feels the need of a telephone
in the office, but we don't feel like hiring
. a staff of bookkeepeis-and putting ^a stop
watch or two on the job to keep tab on
the business. C. S. Steven^ superintendent of the telephone service1, would
confer a favor on the public b)'explaining just why'tbenew system was inaugurated."
Editor Star—Sir : I clipped the enclosed slip from your issue of October
27 and beg to assure you that I have no
objections whatever in giving the fullest
reasons to the public wliy I found it
necessary to make a change in the system of operating the telephone line.
The sole object in making the change
was that the general public "might have
a more efficient' service. 'The System
under which the line was first installed
and operated was the worst that any
trunk line could be operated under,
namely, the placing of subscribers attached to the trunk line at a monthly
rental with deadhead privileges' to use
the line at pleasure.
The telephone* line is divided into sections as follows: Kamloops. to Nicola;
Nicola to Lower Nicola; Nic&la to Hedley; Hedley to Kelowna, and Kelowna to
Vernon. Upon these various sections
between Kamloops and Vernon there are
forty-two subscribers attached to the
trunk line with deadhead privileges, for
which a monthly rental was paid, entitling them to free business over the line.
The said deadhead privileges were so
abused by the subscribers that it became
almost impossible to get the business of
the general public over the fine. Subscribers would get on the line and talk
with other subscribers for an indefinite
period on subjects of the most senseless
concern and would even refuse to leave
the line when told it was wanted for paid
business.
Occurences were frequent of the business of the general public being delayed
for hours in order that an opportunity
might be had of getting it over the
line.
As an illustration of how this condition of things worked, I might cite the
following : A party between Hedley and
Kelowna would have business with Kamloops or someone on the Kamloops-Nicola
section. The party would first have to
get thejine 'from an issue point to' Hedley, perhaps only to find that the
Hedley-Nicola section was in use. While
■waiting for that section to become clear
someone would take the Hedley-Kelowna
section froth him. When1 successful in
getting the Hedley-Kelowna and Hedley-
>Nicola section' clear, he then ran the
gauntlet ..to find 'the Kamloops-Nicolaj
sectipn in useu While waiting for that
section to beiiome disengaged' he was
liable tg interruption from the first two:
sections. If you will refer to columns of
.papers printed in Vernon, Kelowna, Pen
tictorj- and—Hedley, -you will find the
generai public complaining of these
delays.
Upon investigating complaints of
dglays iriW'fr'dtfsmissfbn of; messages I
found several cases where.they were tied
dp for .four or. fiivei.-h-dtirs at a stretch,
being unable to get on the linedo send
them.
Applications were coming fri from all
quartersfor remuneration for services for
doing business for the line, when nine-
tenths of the business done was deadhead, nothing being received in return.
These were the conditions existing
when I found it necessary to institute a
ichange, cance.ling deadhead privileges
:over the entire lineand paying our" agents
a commission upon all business'- done,
'including their own, and allowing them
to charge a messenger rate for bringing
outsiders to the 'phone.
r I trust you will give the same publicity
to this that you gave to the attached slip,
which will inform the people that the
change was made in their interests.
Yours truly,
■Chas. S. Stevens,
<$j5f' Superintendent.

ILLEGAL TRAPPING.
Olin and Johnston Charged with  Illegally Taking Beaver—A Serious Offence.
Game Warden Hewat and Jim Snowden went tip to the Roche river district

Peace Waterman on Friday evening.

TELEPHONE RECONSTRUCTION.
D. A. Carmichael, inspector of the reconstructing portions of the Dominion

contracts let in sections as follows :
From Snowbreak to D. L. Munro's,
339 poles, to Jas. Brown ; from Munro's

Thursday for Aspen Grove, and he will
be kept right on the move from now on
until the completion of this work.
AN EXPLANATION.
Editor Star—Sir : Referring to your
account  of  an   accident  to    an  Indian
woman  at Granite  creek in last week's
issue of the Star you animadvert rather
strongly  on   my refusal to proceed until
guaranteed  my fee.    Will you allow me
to explain that in an interview I held last
summer with Mr. Irwin, the Indian agent,
I was informed that I had  nothing to do.
with medical attendance on Indians, that
they were provided for by two other doc-'
tors, one at  Hedley  the other at Nicola. •
It   was  only   natural,  therefore,  that  I
should  tell   the   local   authorities   that,
application should, in the  first  place, be
made  to  one  or  other of these doctors.
I also  expressed   my   willingness to pro- '
ceed,   if required,   but  pointed  out that
already on two occasions ,on trips up the/
valley I  had  had   to pay my own live:y
expenses,  and   had   as yet, not received
anything whatever in return.
Just why the doctor should be the only
philanthropist in such cases, I am unable-
to see.    There was no other delay on my
part.    The delay, if any, was due to the
fact that  the  livery stable keeper had a
horse at  the   forge with his shoes off.    I
trust, in fairness to myself, that you   will
kindly insert this letter.
J. E. Schon.
Princeton, 27th Oct., 1906.
MIX-UP OF NAMES.
A serious blunder was made in the
Star's report of the Liberal convention
last week, wherein "Nick" Pickard and
T. D. Pickard, road superintendent, are
made to appear one and the same person.
The former is the very antithesis of the
latter, insomuch that he is a staunch
believer in Liberalism and progress while
T. D. is a follower of Mr. Shatford. The
apology of the Star is tendered "Nick"
for the mix-up, with the promise that,
more care will be exercised in future reports.

LABOR AND   SOCIALISM.
The recent convention held in
Vancouver for the purpose of forming a united labor party in this
, Province agreed to disagree shortly
after convening. The Socialistic
wing wanted to run tbe whole show
, to suit themselves, and the anti-
Socialists refused 'M to submit
to any such scheme; consequently there was a split, the anti-
Socialists (the real labor element,
and the men who have the interests
of the workingman at heart) left
the convention and gathered in other quarters, forming themselves into the Canadian Labor Party of
British Columbia.
Referring to the disruption in the
labor ranks,  the Vancouver World
says:    "There is much more in the
split that has driven the good  elements of the labor party from   the
organization than would appear  at
.first glance,   and   when   time   has
been afforded to   go   through   the
lengthy proceedings and  arrive  at
.an intelligent conclusion we  think
it will be found that the Local Government had an important influence
in shaping the course of   the   majority (the Socialists).    At Victoria
the   Government  failed   to   get  a
hearing.    Their effort to inject Mr.
Hawthornthwaite,     the     Socialist
leader, with his peculiar views, into
the arena there, was defeated   by a
vote   of  67  to 8.    At   Vancouver
their scheme was successful.    Mr.
Davidson, the  only labor   member
in the House, a Socialist   and   an
unswerving supporter of  the Government in all their schemes, managed things so adroitly as to divide
the convention and drive the delegates who stand for everything that
is good and decent from   the   hall.
The sheep are now separated from
the goats.    The labor men pure and
simple are gathered in one fold and
the   Socialists who, if  we are   to
judge from the admissions of their
leader, are a  distinctly, disloyal organization, are left to their own devices.   T.he position of the Government is a peculiar one.    The Socialists will nominate a   ticket   in
every district and the Government
must put up candidates  in   opposi-
, lion or support the Socialist ticket.
In either case they are between the
devil and the deep blue sea, while
the opposition, who are practically
unpledged, will vote so.idly for
men whose loyalty is unquestioned
and who will njt be tbe tools of
great corporations or join bands of
foreign adventurers for the spoila-
tion of the Province. The sky is
clearing and people are beginning
to see political things as they are,
not as they seem."
It seems to us that tbe best and
only sensible thing for the labor
party to do is to join hands with
the Liberal party, a party that
stands out for the rights of the
workingmen, and has fought the
laboring man's battle in this Province on more than one occasion.
If they continue to be blind to the
fact that, their true interests and
those of the Liberal party are practically identical, and insist on running independent candidates, they
will defeat their own ends and play
into the hands of their enemies—
the Conservatives and Socialists.
Socialism may be all right, but
those at the head of the Socialistic
party in this Province have shown
themselves to be all wrong, and instead of promoting laboring interests, they have allied themselves
with a party that has gone out of
its way to impose burdens on the
masses. The policy of the government that the Socialists have been
keeping in power, "tbe first Conservative Government British Columbia ever had" has been to recklessly handle the finances of the
country, scatter millions in cash
and lands to grafters, instead of
preserving these things for tbe people, and then raise the taxes to provide the necessary money to keep
the machinery going. If this is true
Socialism we want none of it. Let
the labor party look to their best
interests and they will see the wisdom of joining a party who are in
sympathy with their views and interests.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Nelson Canadian lets the
McBride cat out of the bag when it
tells the public that the Premier
declined the $1,000,000 offer of Mr.
Whitney, because he feared that
should he accept it the Opposition
would say that he got too little,
says the World. So the Province
is to be worked up into fever heat
ofcecession because the Premier
feared that the Opposition would
make capital out of his course at
the conference. What an evidence
of Ministerial pusillanimity is presented if the Canadian.s statement
is a fact. Had we a Premier who.
was able enough and bold enough
to stand on bis own bottom, like
the tub, all this hubbub would
have been avoided. In the House
last winter the Premier asked the

ONE HUNDRED AND COSTS.
After the item on page one, referring
to illegal catching of beaver was in
print, it was decided to bring the case on
in the afternoon and it came up at one
o'clock before Justice of Peace Water-
mau. The witnesses against the accused
were Constable Hewat and Jim Snowden,
who actedas guide for the constable.
They testified to finding two beaver skins
in the possession of Messrs. Olin and
Johnston, who admitted they owned the
traps which caught the animals, but
claimed the traps had been set for otter.
After summing up the evidence, Mr.
Waterman imposed a fine of $50 for each
skin and #53 costs or in default thirty
days in jail. The fine was paid. It is
to be hoped this will have the effect of
making trappers more careful in keeping
within  the law.
A meeting of the Board of License
Commissioners was to have been held on
Thursday evening at 4 o'clock, but on
account of necessary quorum failing to
materialize, the sitting was adjourned for
