PREMIER SAYS IT IS SO
Commission will Inquire into
the  Live Question of
Indian Reserves
Premier Sir Richard McBride, has in
titnated the policy of his govern mem Til
a speech of two hours duration on Tuesday He also devoted considerable at
tention to the Canadian naval program
defining his position as favorable to the
policy announced by Premier Borden.
Regarding the Doukhabors he made it
plain that notwithstanding Commissioner
Blakemore's report these people would be
obliged to observe the statutes as all
others of the community, aud there
would be no relaxation of the law in their
behalf.
The Premier stated that road construction and general public works would
claim his attention as in foimer years
and that during this year as large a sum
would be expended as last jear.
Referring to Indian reserves he said he
had tried to impress on those who were
advocating the cause of the Indians the
absurdity of the propo.-ition 1 hat these
lands belong to the Indians and net the
while people of this p, evince. The
Provincial GovernmPiit never will and
never can acknowledge that there is any
th'ng   in   such   a   claim Lands   not
altenal. 1 by the crown belong to tbe
and lands which have been alienated
belong to the people who are holding
them. There will soon foe a commission
appointed to look into the Indian reserves
question. It has been determined by the
Ottawa and Victorian governments to
have the commission go into the question
of ihe Indian reserves and where they are )
found tu foe too small they will be enlarged aud where it is determined they
are now too extensive they will be
reduced in area It is said that in the
nr.rthern portion of the province some
reserves are too small to meet the needs
of the Indians, while in the south the
acreage is of some is larger than is
necessary.
Where the reserves are found to
be too large the lands taken away will be
sold by auction and the proceeds of the
sales will be equally divided between the
province and the Dominion Government.
In the matter of the balance of the reserve
lands of the province will convey its
interest to the  Dominion so that if in its
Coi tinned on page 2.

power to set it in motion
Quarrymen are at work opening up the
limestone deposit and putting it in
shape for delivery.
A large kiln, 125 tons, is expected anv

Superintendent Osborne has a force of
skilled workmen putTtng^'the plant in

had been disbursed in dividends $1,568 ,
622,43, being at the rate of 10 per cent,
per annnin, and an extra bonus dividend
of 1 per cent, for Ihe year. The policy of
paving bonus dividends until such time
as we are confident of being able to maintain a higher rate would seem to be a
higher rate would seem to be a wise precaution, in view of the extraordinary
deve opement of our business, and the
desirability of making ample provision
for any contingency likely to arise. The

The president stated among much

In hockey circles there is a lull owing
to Hedley and Keremeos not having
accepted the challenge issued by the
Priuceton club. If there are not enough
sports down the valley to make a match
the upper valley will come through with
a bunch that will make the game interesting. Hockey is one of the swiftest
of games, always something doing, and
spectatois never fail to get value for their
entrance deposit. 'Give us hockey' say

can be issued to them. That is a matter,
then, for Ottawa to decide and for its
acts it will assume responsibility.'
Touching on the railway situation the
the Premier stated that by the end of
1914 the Kettle River Valley Railway
will be completed and in operation
between the Coast and the Boundary
country. He stated that some activity
had recently been exhibited by the Great
Northern Railway in c nnection with the
V.. V. & E. line between the Coast and
the Boundary.
For years British Columbia has been
awaiting the fruition oe the plans of the
Great Northern in respect to theV., V.
&E Railway, declared Sir Richard, and
the work has been deferred till lately. I
now have it on the authority of President
Gray of .the Great Northern, Mr. A. H.
McNeill, K.C , general counsel of ihe
railway in British Colmmfoia, and Mr.
Louis VV. Hill, chairman of the board of
the railway, that the work of building
the V., V. & E Railway will be proceeded without delay so that by the end
of next year the Coast districts will enjoy
connection with the Boundary by'these
two lines of railway.
The Pacific Great Eastern Railway was
declared by the premier to be an independent organization and a colonizing
underatking. He stated that upwards of
1000 men are now engaged on construction and that the contractors have
promised that their forces in the field
will shortly be augmented so that the
railway will be completed the entire
distance between Vancouver and Fort
George in two years. Sir Richar 1 was
exact  in respecting the coast terminus of
the road. He said, the terminus of the
railway on the coast will be Vancouver,
reached by North Vancouver and Howe
Sound.
Mentioning that the interests of the
Howe Sound & Northern Railwav
Company which was building from New
port to Lillooet had been acquiring by
the Pacific Great Eastern Railway at an
expenditure of over $1,000,000, Sir
Richard stated that the government had
every confidence in the men behind the
railway now under construction between
the coast and Fort George and was pre
pared to leave nothing undone to enable
these men to go forward with their work

MORE CAPITAL WANTED.
One indication out of many which
encourages the belief that Princeton and district have real merit and
attractiveness is found in the ever
increasing number of settlers and
investors. Land that nobody would
think of settling upon ten years ago
is now quickly appropriated and
cultivated. Vacant or unoccupied
1 .nd, if the large areas held by coal
leaseholders may not be classed as
such, cannot be found within come-
atable range of town, When the
land is so eagerly taken and search
ed for it is an indication of future
development and prosperity, The
same may be said of the investor
as the settler, with this difference
that the trend of money investment is usually based on the logic
of revealed facts and great care is
taken to make sure the expenditure
will be profit producing, With the
settler it is largely a case of last
resort for improving his condition
and he is willing to take 'a chance'
on the soil and climate.
At this juncture or turning point
in the history of Princeton and sur
rounding mineral   and  agricultural
district   the  great desideratum and
one thing   needful   is capital     Settlers  and   laborers   are duly appreciated   and welcome,   (Wit just now
there   is urgent   need   of money to
assist in further development.   The
mineral   claim  owner,   the farm or
ranch   proprietor and various business propositions  are beckoning for
capital to come  their way.    There
are also opportunities in real estate
for  the   investor   which   cannot'be
repeated   again,   so   steadily  is the
advance in  prices.    Some means of
presenting  the   necessity   for more
!capital   and   inducing enterprise to
[take root in this  district should be
!undertaken by citizens.    Some gen-
Itle form of coaxing could easily be
jdevised in the form of literature distributed in pamphlet or map forms.

NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
The wonderful strides of progress
n British Columbia during the past
lalf dozen years is merely a repeti
tion of western spirit as shown in
the development of the prairie
provinces and northwestern states.
It is characteristic of the frontier
life to bring into play those dynamic
forces which make for progress.
If a man, a town, or community be
alive at all to their interests there
will be no continuous effort to
attain some particular object on
which their desires are set. Adventure and the struggle to subject and
conquer rugged nature develop the
man. No room for the whining
pessimist or the person who cannot
adapt himself to the new conditions.
The men who have made the west
and, have made fortunes themselves
never looked back to the land they
came from, and sighed and whined
because they had not the conveniences now they formerly had. Any
honest and industrious person can
make a home and competency in
the west. The failures are those
who want something for nothing,
and are never done finding fault
with somebody or some concern.
Anyone who cannot put up with
frontier conditions had better go
back to the place they left and give
room to those who want to develop
themselves, the town and the
country.
If evidence were wanted of the
faith in which Princeton is held by
big -financial concernes it may be
found in large real etsate transaction announced on another page,
whereot the Bank of Montreal
acquires valuable real estate in
excellent location. The flatiron
shaped corner bounded by Bridge
street, Vermilion and Fenchurch
avenues, is in many respects the
cream of business sites. It is in the
heart of the "town and therefor in
commanding position. In tbe possession of the Bank of Montreal, no
doubt it will be improved as a permanent investment and make a
valuable contribution to the growth
of the town.
Tbe construction of the V., V. &
E. is not moving at a very rapid
pace and the Kettle Valley line is
also building at slow march. The
laying of steel on the Wenatche
branch of the Gt. Northern is now
taking place after the grade was
completed three years. Railroad
building nowadays is very little like
methods of twenty years ago, when
an army of men were employed
night and day and track was laid
at the rate of six miles a day. O,
for the old methods.
Without wishing to be unduly
harsh or critical Star rises to observe
that the young Turk[eys] are
flappiug their wings as prelude to
having their necks wrung. The
Bulgars will not spare them and
they are justified in plucking every*
feather off them.

EVER DRAWING.
That British Columbia and the Western
Prairies continue to be an ever increasing
attraction is again proven by recent
doings in English real estate, which has
of late been very active, rivaling even
Canadian business in volume of turnover
and number of sales. Probably the determination of the Briton to break up
his great land estates is partly responsible
for this increased activity, but the chief
cause is, without doubt, the opportunities
Western Canada affords. During the
last six or seven months one firm alone
has disposed of landed estate to the value
of $16,000,000, principally the properties
of peers and country squires. All classes
of British lite are responding to the
appeal of the Dominion. Each week
throughout the sailing season proper the
steamers of the Canadian Pacific Railway
and other lines sailing to Canadian ports,
have conveyed members of both Houses
of Parliament, bankers, heads of investment houses, directors of industrial and
I insurance companies to an extent that is
' surprising. Even society women are
[ coming to engage in fruit growing ; or
' ranching on the prairies.—Summerland

j NEW KIND OF WHEAT.
After months of the most careful experimenting Chas. E. Saunders, Dominion cerealist, has succeeded in producing a new kind of wheat, which, it is
believed will he worth millions of dollars
to Canada. The new variety which is
known as ' Prelude,' was obtained by
cross fertilization of the most hardy
grades, and will not only grow in the
northern districts of Canada, but will
ripen from eight to ten days earlier
than any of the others. By producing
a grade that will stand the cooler
climate of the north. Mr. Saunders'
success will fake it possible to grow
wheat in millions of acres in the north
west and other districts where the land
has been previously undeveloped, because
no wheat plants could stand the coolness.

B. C. FORESTRY NOTES.
Mr. P. H. Campbell, Dominion
Director of Forestry, in an outline of the
work of the Federal P"orest Branch
published in the Pulp and Paper Maga
zine lays particular emphasis upon the
creation of forest reserves as conservators
of the national wealth. He says ' The
organization of the permanent forest
reserves so as to make them fireproof
and to provide proper management is
work that requires a good permanent
staff and a system of permanent improvements, such as forest raneer stations,
trails, roads, bridges, telephone lines
etc. As the forest ranger staff is the
groundwork of the organization for
handling the reserves, the choice of the
right kind of men is a factor of the
greatest moment. The improvement
work above referred to „s required on
th. reserves is necessary if there is to be
effective protection and management,
and as all thi= work is yet to be done it
will be seen that theie must be a large
initial expenditure which cannot be
expected to be returned by the forest
immediately. The work on improvements
is, in fact, a capital expenditure, and
should be considered as such. A proper
system of roads, trails, buildings, etc.,
throughout the reserves will cost a large
amount of money, the incidence of which
should be distributed through a series of
ye irs.
