It is not beneficence to give unless love goes with the gift.
Most probable a smelter will be operated nigh Princeton in near future—Copper and iron ores abound—Coking  coal within few miles
of town—Domestic and steam coal under town—Princeton must be Pittsburg of the west—Railroad center—Reads, trails, rivers meet here.

ALL RIGHT
Security for Every Dollar Guaranteed to the
Canadian Northern—Railways the
Crying Need of Province*
Mackenzie & Mann Give Security on Valuable Railway Pro-
perty==Fir"st Mortgage is the Safest Form—Canadian Northern has Valuation of
$160,000,000.
As security tliat the bond guarantee
can never, by the remotest chance, cost
the provincial treasury one dollar, British Columbia has :
I. The value of the line upon which a
first mortgage is given.
2._The*net value over all incumbrances
of thejpjproperty of the company which
gives the guarantee of indemnity.
3. The ability of the men in control of
the company  to  make a success of their
' undertaking.
4* The financial record and reputation.'
of these men, and the value to them of
preserving their financial prestige unimpaired.
These are considerations that would
be taken into account by any trust com-t
pany in making an actual cash loan on
such security.
Will earn surplus revenue in the present case:
1.a "While the bond guarantee is for
only $35,000 per mile, the actual cost of
construction will be some $50,000 per
mile: or on the whole line a total of $9,-
000,000 more than the amount of the
guaranteed bonds. To verify this estimate compare the cost per mile of the
G.T.P. in British Columbia as shown by
published contracts for construction of
the grade only. Compare also the outstanding stock and bonds per mile of
other transcontinental lines on even
their prairie sections.
b. The proposed line will be of immense value to the C.N.R. as a revenue
producer from the very outset, It will
carry a large volume of traffic between
British Columbia and the prairie served
by thousands of miles of road already in
operation there. The reason why the
C.N.R. want to build the line is because
it will earn that company a large revenue over and above interest and other
fixed charges on the entire $50,000 per
mile that the company exnects to pay for
its construction.
C.N.R. property is worth $150,000,060.
In addition to a first mortgage On this
line the C.N.R. gives a guarantee of indemnity to the province. What is the
net value of the other property ownsd
by the company ?
One way of estimating this would be
to compare its net earnings after paying
interest and other fixed charges, with the
net earnings of other railways, whose
total net earnings may be computed from
the market price of their stock.
It so happens, however, that an estimate has already been made by competent appraisers.
Five years ago Hon. R. P Roblin mentioned publicly that the C.N.R'. company
had been offered $25,000,000 for its railway by auotherHlranscontinental company. It had then 890 miles ; now it has
4,300.
Today the earnings of the C.N.R. are
more than six times what they were then
and its future is vastly more secure. It is
well within the mark to place the present
net value of the system at $150,000,000.
Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann demonstrated their ability to make a success of
a railway enterprise at the very outset of
their career as railway proprietors. This
began with the extension of a line 123
.miles long. Mackenzie & Mann made
their road pay .from the first. They have
since gone on building and purchasing
railwavs and in every single year their
lines have made a profit. Their record
as financial operators has never been approached by any other transcontinental
line. The C.P.R. in its early years was
forced to go to parliament for a loan of
$20,000,090.
Mackenzie & Mann are not now making their final appearance upon the
money market. They will have other
securities to issue. Coming to western
Canada from Ontario some 25 years ago
with but few dollars, their ability has
built up properties that have a net value
of over $260,000,000. Are these men
with these resources and with this record
going to defanit payment of a comparatively small sum of money when by so
doing they would lose possession of a
great successful transcontinental railway,
and also destroy their financial reputation which they have earned in a lifetime
of business activities ?
RAllWAYS-PROfiRESS
Provincial Press Almost Unit
on Railway Question
Before People.
Province has  it in Power to Obtain
Railway—Four Transcontinen- ,
tal Lines.
The railway agreement upon which the
McBride government is appealing to the
electorate, although falling short in a few
respects of what was expected, constitutes the. boldest and most progressive
step ever taken by a government of British Columbia. It is gratifying that after
the long period of inaction since British
Columbia entered the Canadian Confederation the province has at last decided
to enter upon the march of progress with
the other members of the union. The
people of the interior of this province
have for a quarter of a ceutuiv been
hoping, waiting, pra3-ing, imploring, ane
during the last few years, clamoring for
railroads. Premier McBride has risen to
the occasion and has given the province
the best railway policy he could. It will
give British Columbia, in the Canadian
Northern another transcontinental railway that will send out feeders into every
ifnportant section of the province ; and
it will give southern British Columbia
direct communication between the coast
the Kootenays ahd southern Alberta. In
fact, in the Midway-Princeton-Nicola
line it will add practically another trans-
provincial railway and shorten the distance across the province to a considerable extent. j&i ;;'
What does the province give in order
to secure these roads ?
To the Canadian Northern it gives vir
tually nothing. To be sure it guarantees
the bonds on that line at four per cent.,
reckoned at thirty-five thousand dollars
per mile for six hundred miles. No province has ever yet been called upon to
pay interest on roads built by the Canadian Northern for the simple reason that
the traffic has always been sufficient to
pay it.
The raiiway company requires this
guarantee merely to enable it to raise the
necessary capital in the world's money
markets to finance its enterprise. The
province will, under normal conditions,
never be called upon to pay a dollar of
that guarantee. The Kettle Yalley Railway Co. will receive seven hundred and
fifty thousand dollars as a subsidy for
one hundred and fifty miles of road
from Penticton to Nicola. For this, that
company will build from Midway to
Penticton and from Penticton to Nicola,
with a probability of an early extension
of a line up the North Fork of the Kettle
River, one to Princeton and one a direct
line from near Otter Flat over the Hope
mountains to connect with a line to the
coast. This is pretty good for a start.
The province must have roads and it
would pay the government to build them
and give them to the railway companies
if it could get them in no other way.
What is the difference to the province in
general if the Canadian Northern does
parallel the C P.R. from Kamloops to
Hope if it can secure the best grade that
way ? It will provide a shorter route
than at present exists across the province.—Penticton Press.

MANLY & SWANSON.
Princeton, B.C., October 13th. 1909.
It is in the nature of some people,
to  be    obstinate   and  obstructive.
Their  egotism  and  vanity prompt
resistance to  any  effort  of .which
they are not  the  promoters.    The
nomination of R. Elmhirst in opposition  to  L. W. Shatford  is a case
of combined   obstinacy and blind
self importance without a parallel
in any election.    Here is a man who
taking advantage  of the disorganized condition  of the Liberal party
lends himself to  the manipulations
of two or three designing and pushful obstructionists.     The so called
Liberal convention at Keremeos was
merely tbe rendezvous  of an insignificant  number  of  quasi Liberals
from Fairview, Keremeos and Hedley.    The remaining  and most important sections of tbe constituency
were not consulted.    Therefore Mr.
Elmhirst can in no  wise be considered as  a  choice representative of
Liberals but merely the instrument
of a disgruntled  faction  who want
to  pose  as  having  some  political
weight  or  influence,  but  who are
really nothing  more nor  less than
heelers,    recipients   or  prospective
recipients  of patronage from Ottawa.
Now that Mr. Shatford is denied
a genuine and honorable claim to
election by acclamation by the nomination  of Mr.   Elmhirst  it forever
bars  the  door against any Liberal
being elected  for Similkameen.    It
was  a   compliment   which  would
have   immeasurably    elevated   the
Liberals in  the estimation of the
whole    electorate.      Moreover,    it
would  have  been  generous recognition  of services  well performed,
of fair and non-partizan representation and of honesty of purpose and
deed.    Honor loving  Liberals and
all good  citizens will revolt at the
needless expense of time and money
involved in this election.    Even the
nearest  friends    of   Mr.   Elxhirst
admit that he has  not a ghost of a
chance to beelected—but, they say,
'it will pave the way for his future
candidacy.'
The Liberal party of British Columbia as well as of Ottawa ought
not to be misled by irresponsibles.
If brains, capacity and part}- allegiance count for anything the mere
effervescence of heelers ought not
to be considered. Many oldtirre
Liberals are offended by the intrusion of those who have never had
any place  in   the  party except by
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mr. Elmhirst enters the contest
without prestige,, experience or
newspaper endorsement. Where
can he hope to get 'off at' without
these and the assistance of a united
party behind him ?

Well done, Shatford ! Six years
of faithful representation and another six ready for you at the request of electors.
Socialists have gained in the esteem of the people by withholding
any pushful candidate of their
political creed. An election in the
Similkameen is wholly uncalled fur
and ought never to have been permitted. Iu this connection the
law ought to be amended ; requiring two-fifths of the voters to ap?
pend their names to any candidate's
nomination papers.
Princeton polling division must
sustain its record and put the man
who has fulfilled his promises before one who has yet to be proven.
Mr. Elmhirst may grow cabbages
and hay successfully and even turn
out a good quality of hog but does
he or his political midwives hope
or expect to l.ave him returned on
the qualifications mentioned.
Mining  is  the  backbone of the
Similkameen.     Without   it   there
would  be  no demand for  hogs cr
hay  here.     Mr.  Shatford  has invested many  thousands  of dollars
in the mining industry here.    How
much  has  Mr.  Elmhirst  spent in
developing the mineral resources of
the  Similkameen ?     Does he even
own a miner's certificate ?    Do his
political godfathers take any interest in mining or any other substantial industry ?    What are his business  qualifications   for the position
of  representative?     Can  he originate  or  initiate legislation?    Has
he sufficient information and culture
to enable him to reflect credit upon
his   constituents?      Has   he   any
business    qualifications   to  recommend him as representative ?
Premier McBride has given cspa-
ble administration and the country
is progressive.
Taxes have been reduced owing
to the increased prosperity. Vote
for Shatford and prosperity.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
Good may be turned into a habit quite
as readily as bad.
A happy married life depends on the<
willingness to forgive. There is always!
room for the exercise of this virtue by J
every husband and wife.
Ignorance and self conceit sometimes
bring a man to the verge of ruin—some
men think they ought to represent the
people and neglect their business of cul
tivating the soil.
The'immature aspirant for political
honors pays dollars for his experience
while the other fellow corrals the dough.
The way things turn out is one of the <
clearest evidences of Providence, not£
luck, as men call it.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228."
CHAPTERS:   25.
SCOPE:   The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING: Copper history, geology, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook   is  concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannot
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or #7.50 in full library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no '
money, but order the book sent you, all
carriage charges prepaid, on one week's
approval, to be returned if unsatisfactory,
or paid for if it suits. Can you afford
not to see the book and judge for yourself of its value to you?

RAILWAY POLICY MEANS  PROGRESS FOR PROVINCE.
The Winnipeg Free Press, recognized
everywhere as the leading exponent of
liberalism in the whole of western Canada, discussing premier McBride s railway policy in so far as it effects the Canadian Northern railway, says: "The guarantee applies to the principal as well as
to the interest. "There is, however, nothing exceptional in this. The Manitoba
guarantees, which form the model for all
these bond-guaranteeing enterprises, are
guarantees of principal. If they were not
they would be of no particular value to
the railway company."
In other words, according to the Press
this is exactly what the governments of
Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and
Ontario,and of the Dominion has already
