Vol. XI. No. 5.
PRINCETON, B.C., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1910.
$2 a Year in Advance
ALL FOR THE FARJ
Convention at Victoria to Arrange Fall Fairs and
Other Matters.
B.C. is Varied in Resource, most Important is Mining, Agriculture
Good Second.
During the week commencing 31st
January, Victoria will be in evidence la
all matters pertaining to Agriculture.
On Monday the 31st January, a meeting
of the Secretaries of the Agricultural
Fairs and Associations of the Province
will take place. The main aims and
objects of the Convention are to arrange
about the securing of Judges for future
Exhibitions so as to compile a circuit
that will enable fairs to be held on dates
not conflicting with others situated in
the same district. Other matters pertaining to the more effective carrying
out of tbe Annual Exhibitions throughout the Province; will be considered,
and no doubt, as a result of such a con
ference, much good will accume to the
advancement of Agricultural Fairs and
Exhibitions iu,British Columbia.
Central Farmers Institutes.
' On Ttiesday, the 1st February, anil the
fplldwing-'da'y, a meeting of the Central
Farmers' Institute will be held, when all
proposals, resolutions and matters for
important consideration will be placed
011 the agenda and finally dealt with during the Convention. This Institute is
representative of all the Farmers, Insti
lutes throughout the Province, and all
matters pertaining to Agriculture and
the betterment of the present condition
of the farmer are laid before the conference for consideration and decision. It
is anticipated that many of the Institutes
are furnishing their representative dele
gates with proposals to submit to the
Convention and which, if carried out,
cannot but have the best results for practical operation.
Dairymen's Say
On Thursday, the 3rd February, the
Annual Convention of the B. C. Dairy,
men's Association will be held, and on
the following day, the B.C. Stock-Breeders' Association, will be in session. A
good programme has been prepared for
both of these meetings, and many interesting aud valuable lectures will be delivered by well-known authorities on all
matters ' pertaining to Agriculture.
Nothing succeds like success, and it is
evident that the knowledge disseminated
throughout the proceedings of these
gatherings cannot but have the best possible-results in the farther advancement
of the Agricultural Industry throughout
British  Columbia.        C.P.  Ry.  Co.   are
issuing special excursion tickets at single
rate, and the opportupity afforded the
people from near and far to combine
pleasure with business in coming to Vic
toria during the Convention, is not one
often offered the public. It is to be hoped that many will avail themselves of the
chance to hear some first-class practical
addresses and will also sieze the opportunity to take part in the discussions
which will follow.
Full information and particulars of the
Convention can be obtained from   R. W.
Hodson,    Secretary-Treasurer,    Depart
ment of Agriculture, Victoria, B.C.

Xffe first white woman came into this
section of the country in i860. She
came to Rock Creek, where 400 men

The Canadian Facific Raiiway has the
largest mileage of any road on the continent. It has 10,048 miles in Canada
and owns or controls 5,000 in the United
States, which gives a total of 15,048 miles.
Next to the Canadian Pacific comes the
Mew York Central with 15,524 miles.-
The steamship service of the Canadian
Pacific is fully 10,000 miles, so that the
company controls a transportation system greater than the circumference of
the world.
A. Murchie, photographer,, arrived in
town yesterday after a long absence and
notes with pleasure the progress all

He will remain for a few days, renewing
mtny friendships, returning again in the

BUYING R16HT0FWAY
Agent Purchases  as   Far as
Contract   Extends   up
Tulameen River.
Finds Some Prices Little High in the
Rough but Smoothes them
Gently- Down.
: Major Anderson, rightofway agent for
the Great Northern Railway Co., arrived
in town last week and at once began the
purchase of land through which the line
of the V., V. & E. runs. When the
Major appears on the scene it is evident
something will be doing in railway construction, for he is tbe forerunner of
actual building operations. Until he
came there was a possibility, that the
road would not be built during the year.
Indeed, some doubting ones said that
the Skagit route was the only way to
the coast and tKat Uncle Jim had evil
designs on this section.
Major Anderson looks good to the
ranchers and townsiters along the line.
That sweet, henip'nant smilp -with
which he greets a land owner makes a
fellow think he can get any old price for
his rock pile or boulder bottom. Not so,
however. Behind that simple smile there-
is such firmness that a man just nalfir«5
ally thinks he had butted into a stone
wall a yard thick when he'says 'no,'
quickly.
The Major is not a man of war as his
rank would indicate. Rather is he
calm, self possessed, peaceful, gentle and
patient. He gives ear to all a seller has
to say in praise of his valuable land,
then his rebuttal follows in smooth,
choice language, ending in a peroration
as eloquent as convincing that the land
in question is worth little more than
wild land, and that whatever value it
had was acquired from the railway now
about to be built. The seller now feels,
if he has any feeling left after the jolt
received, that he is in the presence of
a man of decision and despatch and one
not to be trifled with. The seller now
retreats and asks for time to think, the
Major advising him to take plenty of
time, there being no cause for hurry.
Tonnage for the Road-
Returning, to the fray with fortified
argument after a half days' thinking the
seller at once launches into the subject
and expatiates on the ruin caused by the
railway cutting his land into strips, the
wonderful productiveness of the soil, its
adaptability for fruit and vegetable growing, the tonnage it will produce forUucle
Jim and the valuable timber on the
rightofway. The Major replied in that
suave manner which meant surrender
for the land owner. He Said that in the
interests  of his   company   he could not
pay fancy prices for wild land ; the railroad would afford every facility for shipping fruit, and the timber, well, the
company did not want it and he would
make him a present of it.
In less than ten minutes the price of
that land dropped four times from a
hundred dollars per acre and the Majdr
won with honor. And he did not leave
a 'bad taste' in the month of his friend
but rather won his good opinion, who departed under the impression that the
Major was all right and that he had got
all that was coming to him for his 'valuable' land.
In many years service as rightofway-
man for the Great Northern Major Anderson has never had any serious dispute
with the thousands of eager owners who
have had to be purchased out of the
wav. He is certainly the right man in
the right place and his settlements are
based on equity and justice and give
general satisfaction. The rightofway is
now purchased as far as the Welch &
Stewart contract extends, near Tulameen
and the. 4sth mile post from the interna-
tional boundary
CHARTERED BANKS IN THE
DOMINION.
There are 31 banks operating in Canai-
da under Dominion charter, according to
the government report for the month of
November. The names of some of the
newer institutions are not familiar to
Wgsjternels such as the Sterling Bank of
Canada", the United Empire Bank of Canada, and the Farmers' Bank of Canada.
The total authorized capital of the 31
banking corporations amounts to $141,-
466,666; the capital subscribed, $98,960,-
191; the capital paid up, $98,046,270,
and the amount of rest or reserve fund is
placed at $77,368,833. Deposits by the
public, on demand Nov. 30 were $264,
285.803; deposits payable after notice,
#493>253>824; deposits elsewhere than 111
Canada, $71,835,533. The notes in circulation total $86,390,876.
The B.C. Electric railway will expend
$80,000 upon buildings at Chilliwack.
Chilliwack is one of the pillars of the
Fraser River Valley. New Westminster
is the standby at the other end. When
linked in the summer of 1910 the interchange of trade will be mutually beneficial.
Groffman & Rose is the style of a new

HOPE MOUNTAINS FOR PARK, J
JL^jJ^u        RESIDE, ETC^.,1^^
■"^he  necessity  for  a    provirici
mining school has been referred to
in these columns before, and immediate legislative action urged for
the location and erection of a building suitable for such an institution
.This province is mineral to the
backbone. Its greatness and importance hinges-ion the'mining industry. Considering all the facrrs
relative to' this industry, 'ft seems
illogical to expect proper results
where proper training is lacking,
It is sofn&Wihat humiliating to our
native pride and worthy ata bitterns
to have to import all our mining
engineers and experts from other
provinces and countries. B.C. is
rather behind sister provinces in
higher educational matters, which
must, and will be remedied to a
great extent, with the proposed
university when completed.
Another    matter   in   which   our
local government is dilatory or altogether forgetful concerns the reservation of a .lasge tract of land for
a provincial   park  and playground.
Other provinces   and the Dominion
have their great   parks in the' wild.
Probably  no   more   appropriate,..jQX
picturesque location, could be found
fon.thissiparkiitihani along the:summit   of  Hope*   mountains.      Here
nature has  spread herself in glorious  scene   and    healthfrfjLiClitnate.
As the headwaters  of many  rivers
andstreams are.here abundatfee-of
fish   and   game   may   be'oblalfretlJ
With    such   surroundings   and   a
country  full  ot geological interest
it .would .be.a. good-.location for the
school of minesr-arid'.uriiversity.
, CHRISTIANIZING AND CIVIL-:
IZING THE WORLD.
As'-. an antidote rfor the poison
scoffers and unblievers'would circulate regarding the progress of religion and the harm- and uselessness
of sending Missionaries to the
heathen, the. following ^resume of
past century will serve to encoufage>
Christians in their noble! uplifting'
work. There are still a great many
heathens, or worse than heathens,-;
in Canada, who never -contribute
by presence or cash to the Mission^
ary enterprise. It is now a question
whether collections §siro'n>td!,not' be
abandoned in churches, as it vVrje^*
lieved many refrain from going to
church because a money collection
is made The idea is to make conversions,    then    LOntnbuUons    will
follow, for the true Christian t^will
.giveMf-'HiS'substanpeand a'irf'in any
^ayg||ie vcan towards' establishing
the Kingdom' tiffo'rrg'ifriuTthe world.
From the Missionary Review a
"Century of Progress" gives one
an idea of the great work accomplished and is. a.sufficient-, answer to
the pessimists and small people who
denounce religion and all who favor
the preaching of the Gospel:
"In 1810 :—Nearly every country .in
■Asia.and Africa Was closed to the GcJspei-,"
the church did not belieye in foreign
missions ; there were practically no
Protestant Christians in heathen lands;
only one hundred foreign missionaries!
were sent out ;' tlie*Bible was translated
into 'only stxty-five languages ; only a
few thousands of dollars were giveu yearly for'r"6reign Missions ; "mere were no
medical missionaries ; there were no
mission hospitals or orphanages; there
was no native Christian ministry; .rnis-
svrkMiy work was not reco'ghizect in
American and British College; there
were no unmarried women missionaries,
and no organized work for women; there
were no mission presses or agencies for
preparing,and distributing Christian literature iu nou-Christian lands. In 1910:
—Practically every nation in the world
is open to missionaries; all evangelical
churches are interested in missions. To
speak against missions is counted a disgrace, and a sign'of ignorance; more than
two million Protestant Christians have
been gathered in heathen lands—besides
all.who have died in the fait.h.;.there are
nearly twenty-two thousand .foreign
missionaries in the world; the Bible has
been translated into about five hundrtd
languages and dialects ; total foreign
missionary contributions auiount to near
'y $25,000,000 anuuaih; thousands of
medical missionaries in tl e heathen
lands treat three million patients a year;
there are four hundred mission hospitals
andover 500 orphanages and asylums in
foreign lands, operated by missionaries;
there are over six thousand unmarried
women missionaries to heathen women
and children.
