AID FOR C.N. RAILWAY
VOTED-BETTER
TERMS NOW
(Staff Correspondence of Star)
Victoria Feb. 25.—The act to aid the
Canadian Northern Pacific railway which
was introduced in the House on Thursday by Sir Richard McBride in a speech
which is considered the most important
and eloquent heard during the present
session. Sir Richard dealt with every
phase of the railway policy pursued by
the present government and emphasized
the prosperity and advantages which had
resulted to the people of the province.
Tracing the history of development he
pointed out how impossible expansion
would be, how dormant natural resources
and how powerless capital, without the
provision of railway transportation.
Referring to the settlement which Mr.
Matson of the Colonist newspaper had
effected between the Indians of the
Songhees reserve in connection with the
longstanding difficulties between these
aborigines and the city of Victoria, the
premier declared that the amount of
$75,000 disbursed in this regard-had not
been excessive in view of the fact that
assets aggregating $5,000^00 h id been
conserved to the city and province, and
terminal sites secured which would allow
the entry of any bonafide transportation
company on equal terms with the Canadian Northern Pacific. It was a good
bargain, one which was creditable to the
people of British Columbia, and of which
the government was proud.
The act to aid the Canadian Northern
Pacific company calls for a government
guarantee of ten million dollars' worth
of the company's bonds, which mature
in April, 1950. The chargeable rate of
interest being 4^ per cent payable half
yeasly. As security to the government
the compauy renders deeds of trust or
first mortgages on their terminals at the
various centers in the province, as well
as other works which will aggregate
about twenty millions of dollars. The
clause of the act which provides that all
materials lor use in the construction of
the terminals shall be purchased in the
province providing the charges for same
are equitable with those of outside competitors, and the requirements which call
for patronage of merchants, tradesmen,
and dealers in B.C. are important features
of the bill and are mutely significant of
the action of the government in safeguarding the people's interests. Provision is also made for a government
audit, which is carried on continuously
during the tenure of the bonds, a»separ-
ate and complete set of books, enumera
ting  all  particulars in  connection with
the transactions of the company being
kept, thus-enabling the department to
keep a check on every phase of the company's business at all times.
' Mr. Manson, Dewdney, secured the
second reading of the respective bills to
incorporate the cities of Port Moody and
Coquitlam.
Hon. Dr. Young, Minister of Education, announced the appointment of Dr.
Frank F. Westbrook, a young Canadian,
dean of the faculty of medicine at the
university of Minnesota, to be president
of the university of B.C. Three million
dollars will be spent this year da education throughout the province.
The insatiate thirsts of those who long

the week excepting Saturday, when 10
o'clock is the hour for closing bars, according to the provisions of a bill to
amend the Liquor act which was brought
in by the attorney-general.
Sir Richard announced that the government was not in favor of extending
votes to women but that any private
member was at liberty to submit a pro
posal for woman suffrage.
Parker Williams introduced his bill for
the establishment of a minimum wage in
coal mines.-
In the house at Thursday's session the
Premier announced that he had received
advices from Ottawa to the effect an
order in council had been passed by the
federal government authorizing the ap
pointment of a commission to investigate
the advisability of better financial Terms
for British Columbia from the federal
government as necessitated by its development.
The resolution brought forward by Sir
Richard McBride expressing sympathy
of the legislature for the death of Capt
Scott, the intrepid  explorer, was framed

B.C. LIFE CO. MAKES
GOOD-PROSPECTS
VERY BRIGHT M
Vancouver, Feb. 24.—The fourth annual report of the British Columbia Life
Assurance Co., which has recently been
authorized for publication by the directors of the company, indicates in a very
pronounced and concise manner the
prosperous financial condition which the
company is'enjoying.
Taking into consideration the fact that
the B.C. Life, although in operation for
writing insurance only 18 months, has a
total of $22,590.50 worth of insurance in
force, at a rate of premium of $34 90 per
thousand, splendid progress has been
made, and the speedy manner in whicu
customers have renewed expired insurance indicates plainly the confidence in
which the people of tbe west regard the
ccmpany as a thoroughly sound financial
institution.
At a 'meeting of the diteclors, which
was held after the conclusion of the annual meeting, L. W. Shatford, M.P.P.,
was elected president of the company for
the ensuing year. ' The following gentlemen constitute the 1913 board of directors: Vice-presidents, Thos. E. Ladner,
Ladner, B.C. and L. A. Lewis, New Westminster. Directors: J. N. Ellis, J. T.
Phelan, J. J. Banfield. F. C. Wade, KC,
D. J. Williams and E. A. Cleveland, all
of Vancouver.
The two vice-presidents are successful
business men who have been identified
with numerous enterprises and undertakings ; the directors are men of high
standing and ability.
L. W. Shatford, who was returned by
acclamation for Similkameen district last
election, is the executive head of the
company. He has had a successful financial career and is engaged in various enterprises. Having, as he does, wide and
influential commercial associations in the
province, his appointment will be a popular one with the business fraternity. If
past deeds are any criterion his administration should prove an able and effective one.
The B.C. Life has consequently a bright
future before it and with the rapid recognition of the fact that Hfeinsuran'ce is the
only real solution of all the problems
arising from poverty, and its attendant
evils, it is confidently predicted by the
executive that over two million dollars
will be written for policyholders during
the vear.
A Chicago wife says that the ads. inte-

It is proposed to establish a Medical Protective Association, a bill
having passed its second reading at
Ottawa giving effect to it. Protection seems tovbe contagious and
pretty soon Canada will not have
a business or profession operating
on its merits. ■• Trusts, combines
and monopolists, all want special
privileges and selfish protection.
Care must be taken to preserve for
all citizens the rights of conscience
as to the kind of cure or treatment
they shall select. Since medicine
has a material origin and therefore
changeabie in its alleged curative
properties, remedies of today or a
decade ago are either obsolete or
rapidly becoming so ; founded on
demonstrable truth the. remedy is
always the same. The Master Physician and believers healed without
materia medica and there are millions who believe it can be, and is,
done today. There is no more
.necessity for a medical trust than
for an established church.
Don't be too gay or brave Mr,
•Gazette when there are no suffering militants around. One of
them is enough for a I/ondon policemen. What could you do without a golf stick if Panky took after
you ? Answer that without evasion.
MINES AND MINING.
E. E. -Burr, of Hedley, was in town on
mining business this week.
A. Phillips, mining man, of Spokane,
was in town recently.
E. P. Wheeler, writing from Spokape
says that he hears many good words
spoken of Princeton and district and
prospects are good for a prosperous year
for all that stayed wifh the camp so many
years.
The B.C. Copper Co. is working with
energy on bonded claims outside 6f Voigt
camp on Copper mountain. A force of
some sixty men is employed and drills
are searching at depth for more ore,
which has already made the camp famous.
C. S. Jennings, mining expert of Spokane,-was in town this week on his way
to Leadville.
Archie Robertson, a partner of Charlie
Collins in mining at Leadville died in
Princeton hospital yesterday. It is supposed be had a paralytic stroke.
W. B. Marks, dancing and calisthenic
master, favorably known here to wor
shippers at the shrine of Terpsichore,
was in town this week looking over the
field for'a class. He notes great improvements iu the town and is decidedly optimistic of its future. Mr.'Marks has mining and other interests in the district and
knows no other place where he would be
more pleased to settle down.

LETTERS TO THE PRESS.
Star has received an unsigned communication for publication. It is a rule of
this paper in common with the greatjna-
jority ot influential ones throughout the
world, to request the bona fide signature
of the writer, not necessarily for publication, but as a matter of courtesy and
good faith. No letter of public interest
will be denied space in journals of stand
ing providing it is free from personal
abuse, scurrility, or improper language,
even if the signature be a nom de plume,
or other fictitious name, or the real name
of the writer. Truth and the exposure
of public wrongs are vastly more important than the identity of the writer. Many
grievances have been exposed and redressed over anonymous or assumed signatures and the practise is upheld by the
leading newspapers of Canada. United
States and Europe.
PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
A man should marry a woman half his
own age plus seven years—old maxim.
True love knows neither age nor beauty
and levels all physical or material inequalities If pure love is not the essence
of any marriage contract banish all proposals of union.
Spirit takes no cognizance of time and
is not susceptible of pain or sorrow, sin>
sickness or death. Live in communion
with divine spirit and fear, doubt, hatred,
impatience and selfishness, the originators of disease, will give place to health,
happiness and eternal life.
When good is spoken of anyone add to
it in the proportion of three to one, subtract in like numbers when bad is told.
Such is the philosophy of life.

in language so simple and sincere, vet so
vivid, that it conjured up in poignant
reality the scenes which had transpired
in that zone of cruel cold. Parker Wil
liams, leader of .the opposition, seconded
the resolution, a copy of which was ordered sent to the widow of the explorer.
The premier introduced the following
resolution relating to the attitude of the
United States congress toward the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty : .' Whereas, according
to .the provisions of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty of 1901, as expressed in rule 1,
clause 3, it was agreed by the United
States of America that the Panama canal
should be open to the ships of all nations
upon terms of perfect equality. And
whereas, by act of congress passed in
1912, vessels owned by the United States,
and engaging in coastwise trade are to be
exempt from canal dues. And whereas
such discrimination  would obviously op
erate to the disadvantage of British vessels engaged in the carrying trade on the
Pacific coast. And whereas in July, 1912
Britain entered a protest against the preferences granted by said act of congress
to American vessels, and again in November of the same year renewed the protest and requested, failing other means
of settlement, that the question Should
be referred for arbitration to the Hague
tribunal in accordance with the provisions of a treaty with the United States in
1908. Therefore, be it resolved that this
legislature views with great satisfaction
the attitude of his majesty's secretary for
foreign affairs in upholding the rights of
British and Canadian shipping in the nse
of the Panama canal, and expresses the
sincere hope that the negotiations which
have been .undertaken may speedily result
in a just and amicable settlement being
reached.'
