GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY, JUN�� 11,1898,  92  No/14/  RAILWAY   RUMORS.  ATER information than was to hand last week with  38 reference to the Corbin railway tends to show  that Mr. Corbin's trip east is in connection with  the securing* of a charter and that ' there is a  strong* probability that before the Dominion  parliament prorouges, the government and the  members will atone for the serious public blunder they committed some time ago when they refused Mr.  Corbin the privilege of building a railway into the Boundary Creek country.  Recent events have shown  the  government that  aside  from its' duty to the public, it   cannot safely deny any railway company the right to extend its system into   this country   simply to oblige the C. P. R.    The   Spanish-American,  war has wiped away the  petty  differences   and   the   petty  jealousios that existed between Canada and United States.  Taking advantage  of the friendly  feeling  that  exists  between the two countries, Sir Eouis  Davies,   the   Canadian  Minister of Marine and Fisheries  proceeded to Washington  for the purpose of arranging with the United States certain  differences between  the  two  countries.    It is rumored that  Sir Eouis   found  the  Americans quite willing to amicably  settle those  differences  more   willing   than  they had ever  been before.    He also found  that  Washington took considerable interest in a quiet, gentlemanly, unassuming, enterprising railway man, named D. C. Corbin.    He��� was told in  plain words that while the United   States government   was  prepared to discuss the alien labor law, bonding privileges,  fisheries and other international questions with  the Canadian, it also wanted an explanation for denying an American railway   company   the right to do business in Canada.  Of course Sir Eouis did confess to   the   Washing-ton   statesmen that the only reason for such   a policy   was   that   the  Canadian Pacific railway company was more powerful than  the Dominion government and that the C. P. R.  considered  its interest best   served   by   refusing   the   Corbin charter.  What   Sir Eouis did do was to assurre the Americans   that  in order to pave   the way for   the  friendly   conference, the  question of the Corbin charter would again  be  considered.  Sir Eouis returned to Ottawr, Mr. Corbin was sent for   and  he and his solicitor, Mr. E-. V. Bodwell left at  once   for the  federal capital.  There is another rumor. The C. P. C. too, finds that  its illiberal, illogical, selfish policy of last winter has been  a harsh and cruel boomerang. Mr. Corbin is a quiet man.  He does not boast nor bluster before railway committees or  any where else but he gets there. He has pulled the strings  and the C. P. R. finds that it has lost and is losing millions through its opposition to the Corbin charter. James  Hill of the Great Northern railway who is friendly to Corbin and his road took up the cudgels in his defense. He  united every railwa3r company in the United States against  the C. P. R. Where the C. P. R. entered into competition  with American roads prices were cut in two and the loss  was equally borne by all the railway systems of the United  states. The C. P. R. were willing* to call off the fight but  , the American lines refused. The C. P. R. is now willing* to  withdraw its opposition to the Corbin charter if the American roads will close the rate war.  Still another rumor. In order ' to get parliament to  defeat the Corbin charter, the officials of the C. P. R. made  pledges and promises that the road from Robson to Midway  will be constructed before the end of this realises were made to the'Dominion government,  ises must be fulfilled.    But the company finds that the eon-  ���bitch prom-  These. pro in  struction of the road through McRae pass, involves, engineering difficulties almost insurmountable. , Tunnelling  and trestling must be carried out on an extensive scale compelling the expenditure of much time and money. It is  almost impossible to build the road in the time specified.  By going a few miles south and following the valley of the  Kettle river, the engineering difficulties are avoided. A  road can be built at comparatively little expense. It is  stated that the C. P. R. is now anxious that Mr. Corbin  should secure his charter that they may get running privi-  leg*es over his road and thus avoid the construction of the  expensive piece of road referred to.  No good argument has ever been used against*the Corbin charter and it would be peculiarly gratifying after the  efforts put forth by the C. P. R., the Turner government  and its other henchman the charter be at last granted.  ���sfi**  DONALD   GRAHAM,   M.   P.   P.  Mr. Donald Graham's many friends will sincerely  regret that he has declined to run for re-election in East  Yale. During the many years Mr. Graham represented  East Yale, he proved himself to be a faithful member to his  constituents andf he province. Possessed of more than the  average amount of good common sense, he was always  found fighting in the public interest and'against the many  viscious acts of the Turner administration. When any  question came up that particularily affected East Yale, Mr.  Graham fought valiantly for his district. Although not  always successful, his constituents feel grateful that he  always did his best and that no other representative could  have done more. The people of Boundary Creek particularily  owe him a debt of gratitude for his stubborn fight against  the resolutions whose object was to assist in the defeat of  the Corbin charter.  . When Mr. Graham's record   is   considered,   the   public  will regret his decision to retire into  private  life-.    Politics  in British Columbia offered but little encouragement to any  man and it is probably for this reason that Mr. Graham has  decided not to seek re-election.    We  cannot help  thinking  however   that   Mr. Graham   is   retiring at the wrong time.  His victory of four years ago was easily the greatest in the  province.    He succeeded in defeating* a cabinet minister in  his own stronghold.    Having, gained   such   a   victory   and  having fought in opposition   for  four   years   Mr.   Graham  should not retire at the present time.    He has practically no  opposition in East Yale.    He could defeat a strong man and  Price Ellison is a lamenta.bl3r weak one.    His party   is sure  to be returned to power and none is more deserving of party  recognition than himself.    Under these   circumstances   we  cannot understand why Mr. Graham should retire.  ���5jt��  A   GOOD   BEGINNING.  The convention'at Carson was an excellent   idea   and is  likely to produce good results as far as  Boundar3r  Creek is  concerned.    Heretofore the   influence   of the people  of the  district was weakened by sectional strife and local gjealous-  ises.    Bouudaiw Creek   will   never   rest   satisfied  until   it  secures its fair measure of representation   and   the   surest  wa3r to accomplish this   purpose   is for the people to present.  a united front.    If the}' work together,   the  object  in   view  will be attained no matter what part}' is returned to power.  We have.no hesitation in. sa3'ing that if the electors of Boim-  daiw Creek had taken a greater public interest in the redistribution bill which is now law and had worked more unitedly for its amendment, Boundarv Creek to da}' would not  be a suburb of Rossland. The Carson convention has  shown that the people of Boundary Creek' can be united in  the district's interest. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ����JBCTHvMgv��if ����nni  ABANDONED   THE   ACTIONS.  The actions for criminal libel ag*ainst  H. Bostock,   M.   P.,   Senator Temple-  man and Ian ���'���Cottar t- were  today, during*   the   sitting*   of   the assize  court,  dropped at the instance of  counsel for  the private prosecutors.    We  can only  infer what the  reasons of the prosecutors were for refusing*   to   proceed   in  these  cases.    Two of the  defendants,  Messrs. Bostock and Tempieman, could  have pleaded  parliamentary  privilege  and remained   at  Ottawa ;  but   being-  anxious that the cases  should   proceed  at once  they  returned to Victoria and  were ready   to   g*o   on  with the trial.  Messrs. Turner   and   Pooley   thoug-ht  otherwise  and abandoned the proceeding's ag*ainst these g*entlemen.    It  is a  pity   that, after   so   much fuss by the  complainants   at  the  police court that  these actions should fizzle  out   in this  way.    There  was   a   greater   issue at  stake  than   the  griilt.or  innocence of  the defendants of the charg-e of  criminal libel, and that issue ought  to have,  beencleterminec^ But there is a hig-h-  er court than that of the assize, and to  that court���the court of public opinion  as expressed in the ballot box���the< conduct of Messrs. Turner and Pooley in  lending* their official names to speculative companies, as well as the acts of  the defendants in commenting* thereon  will now be brought. In that court  Messrs. Turner and Pooley will be the  defendants.���Victoria Times.  LACK   ORGANIZATION.  Hon. J. H. Turner g*oes to the country at the next elections as premier for  the first time, and while he has taken  a prominent part in many provincial  elections he has never before had the  responsibility of acting as the leader  in a political campaign. He is not  much of a politician, and he g*oes into  the approaching contest with his followers poorly organized. It would be  uncharitable to say of Mr. Turner that  he is not. capable of marshalling* his  party in a solid and enthusiastic  phalanx, but certain it is he has quite  overlooked    the1    important    need    of  preparation. His followers are like  sheep without a shepherd. He does  not seem to appreciate that the day  has gone by when a political campaign  can be conducted in British Columbia  like it used to be twenty years ago. He  seems content to abide the result of  the elections upon the record that he  has made in the legislature during the  past four years.���Rossland Miner.

The regular meeting of the city-  council was held in the court house on  Monday evening last. Mayor Wood  presided and Aid. Galloway, Paton,  Barrett, Phelan and Parry were present. Several communications dealing  with the sale of city debentures were  received and filed.  The finance committee reportel the  following bills . which were ordered  paid. Jacob Haakle labor, $15 ; Boundary Creek Times advertising, $22.-  80; B. C. Gazette advertising, $21.25.:  Aid. Barrett suggested that it was  evidently impossible for some members  of the council to be present at 8 o'clock  that the council should nieet in the  future at 8:30. The dilatory fathers  promised to be more punctual in the  future and the council then adjourned.  BRITAIN   IS   DOING   RIGHT.  $  For humanity's sake Great Britain  should see the United States safely  through this war no matter what the  cost may be.     , <  The United States with all its boasted streng'th would have to accept dictation from the powers of Europe if  Great Britain would simply consent to  hold aloof.  Great Britain should not hold aloof  both for. .humanity's sake and for the  sake of the business interests which  must be promoted by an}' decrease in  the influence in.the military powers of  Europe.  Canadians who want to see the United States victorious and who would  sooner see Great Britain fight than  allow the United States to be worsted  by any hostile combination of European powers, are firmly pursuaded that  in spite of all the exuberant gush of  this present time the United States  would cut Great Britain's throat tomorrow.  But the question is not what the  United States would do, but what  Great Britain should do. Britain  should realize that friendship for the  United States is the only virtuous policy for a free nation, and that it is wise  to be virtuous, even when virtue is its  own reward. Britain's own good conscience and empty protestations of  gratitude from the United States are  the only returns that Britain will ever  get from the friendship it is lavishing  upon the American people.���Toronto  Telegram.  A Big Saw Mill Plant.  Mr. A. Fisher of the Boundary  Creek Milling & Eurnber Co. returned  on Sunday, from Spokane. During* his  absence he purchased a complete saw  mill plant which will be placed in position on Eholt creek. Mr. Heniw Jolly,  the company's foreman is overseeing  the hauling of the plant to Greenwood  and it is expected to reach here to-day.  The new mill site is in a good timber  belt. The mill is capable of cutting*  40,000 feet per. day. In addition to the  saw mill plant proper there are two  planers and a shingle mill.    The whole  will be   operated  by a 60-horse   power  boiler. x  The company will also run the old  mill and thus expect to fill the increasing orders for building material  promptly.

A rich strike is reported on the Myr- .  tie, in Greenwood camp, a claim owned  by A. Mcintosh, Jos.. Sterritt and  Adolph Seren. The ledge is about 10  feet wide, carrying a high per centage  in copper, and is considered one of the'  best showings yet discovered in the  camp.  S. Bennerman of the firm of Rick-  ards, Bennerman & Co., Midway, was  in the city Thursda3r. He reports a  considerable movement in Midway real  estate the past week, his firm having  disposed of "a number of lots." He had  been in Greenwood camp, on a tour of  inspection with a couple of English  capitalists.  F. W.. McLaine and R. H. Bergman  are doing assessment on the Manchester, in( Long- Lake camp. The claim  adjoins the Silent Friend, and there  are two quartz leads on the propert^v.  The work now being- done consists of  open cuts, with the object of thoroughly prospecting the ground before actual  develoxnuent is commenced.  Jits. Sutherland returned from Canyon creek Thursday, Avhere he had  been inspecting some properties purchased in the camp last winter. Mr.  Sutherlaud*is hig.hl}' pleased with the  properties and believes that Canyon  creek will be one of the best camps in  the    Kettle    river   country.    He   also  states  tnat   there    is   some     c:u  "el lent  ranch  and timber lands   up the  main  river.  H. B.

The ledge is 12 feet in  width and runs high in gold.  The Reservation Record formerly  published at Nelson, Wash., is now issued at Republic. Mr. McCarter's interest has been purchased by Mr. Kirk-  endall. Rube Hull still has charge of  the editorial chair.  . -. o  Remember the church entertainment  to be given by the ladies of Greenwood  in Rendell & Co's. hall, this evening.  An excellent musical programme will  be rendered, and refreshments will be  served.    Tickets 50 cents.  On the Bruce near Midway the tunnel is in about 145 feet. In the'.last 15  feet run, the character of the rock has  changed considerably, showing more  copper stains, and it is probable that  the ledge will be struck before 20 feet  more has been run.  While at Grand Forks, the editor of  the Advance was interviewed on floods.  It appears that the reporter did not  report fairly, and now the Advance  man is trying to square himself on the  flood question. Weather and floods  are dangerous subjects for even the  " oldest inhabitant," to tackle.

The writs for the Provincial elections  were issued at Victoria last Saturday,  nominating day being fixed for Saturday, June 25, and the elections on Saturday, July 9. Four years ago the  elections were held on July 7, so there  are just two days' difference this year.  POLITICAL   NOTES.  Ex-Speaker Higgins and W. H. Hay-  ward have received the nomination as  opposition standard bearers in E}squ.i-  nialt district. Mr. Higgins has represented the constituency for a number  of years. The contest in Ksquimalt  will probably be the hottest of any in  the province.  Thos. Foster has again received the  nomination to contest the Delta constituency .in the opposition interests.  Mr. Foster was first elected to the legislature from Nanaimo in 1890 as a  labor candidate and in 1894 was elected  for Delta. There is very little doubt  but he will be re-elected.  The government is already handicapped in the tight. The opposition  have their candidates hi nearly every  constituency while the government is  making desperate efforts to induce candid a. its- to run. So far but very few  have announced their intention of becoming vLtiius in the government's  .1 ii Lcr�������L.  Attorney-general LVoerts will have to  make a desperate fight to save his seat.  'a j c (. ppGMiionitts of   South   Victoria  held a convention last week and nominated J. Stuart Yates as their candidate. Mr. Yates is a prominent Victoria lawyer. He resides in the South  Victoria district and has extensive interests there.  Arthur Wellington Smith has, it is  announced, decided to quit politics.  Mr. Smith has sat in the legislature  for several years, representing one of  the L/ilooets. He was a faithful supporter of the Turner goverment. He  is said to have voted for the Turner  government's $5,000,000 railway loan  bill against his own inclinations, and  it may be that the pressure which was  put upon all government members to  induce them to support this bill has had  the effect of driving- Mr. Smith out of  politics.  Mr. Adams, one of the Turner  government's   supporters    from   Cariboo,  has decided  that  he   will not seek reelection.    The electors of  Cariboo will  attend to the case of his colleag-ue, Mr.  Rogers.   ���It   is   said   that  the government   will be forced to   accept   Joseph  Hunter  as  one  of  its Cariboo candidates, as no one else has  the  slightest  chance  of  winning as a   government  candidate.    Hunter is the government  supporter who denounced the $5,p000,000  land bill'so Yukon railway clause as an  attempt to swindle the province out of  $1,000,000.    Good candidate.  Hon. Robert Beaven-, formerly leader  of the opposition in the provincial legislature, and who was defeated in 1894,  has decided to run- as an "independent" for Victoria City.    He. states that  b  he is not in accord with the present opposition. The Hon. Robert cannot be  accused of being too progressive or at  all radical iri his views. In fact he is  a sort of encyclopedia of parliamentary  rules, and is somewhat similar to a  railway train, so long as he keeps in a  groove he is all right, but once off the  track he is lost, locoed, hoodoed. ..Robert is a back number,a relic of pre-civili-  zation days in the. province, and should  ac-  The Hon.

A meeting- was held in Rendell &  Co's. hall, Wednesday evening*, to talk  over the Sunday closing- question.  Mayor Wood was elected chairman and  D. A. Mackenzie secretary.  Rev. T. C. Guy and Messrs. Garland,  Smailes, Phelan, Smith, Galloway,  MclOntire, Ford and Nelson addressed  the nieeting-, giving" their views as to  the advisability or inadvisability of  closing* their places of business on Sundays. The meeting- then adjourned,  having- arrived at no definite conclusion.  THE   CORBIN   RAILWAY.  The Miner would not be surprised if  D. C. Corbin succeeded in running-  trains into the Boundary Creek country at no distant date. He may not  build a railway into that district ; such  a conting*enc3r is, in fact, highly improbable. It is, however, not unreasonable to suppose that he will  extend  his railway system to a point at or  near Cascade City, where it would connect with the Robson-Penticton railway, to be built this year by the Canadian Pacific railway. Mr. Corbin may  then use the R. & P. road as far west  as Midwaj--, where he would commence  the construction of a line to Republic  Camp and other important points on  the Colville reservation which he is desirous of tapping*.  But it is not supposed that the Spokane Falls & Northern Railway company will allow this privilege without  g*iving* a quid pro quo. Mr. Corbin  should he wish to use the C. P. R.  tracks along* the Kettle river valley he  may be called upon by the C. P. R. to  contribute as much as half the cost of  the construction of the railway between  Cascade City and Midway, as well as  to pay his share towards maintaining-  the line in g*ood repair. Besides these  considerations he may have to make  important concessions to his big- rival  in order that the latter may gain access  to Spokane and other points to the  south, so long* desired by the C. P. R.,  by granting* track privileg-es over his  main line.���Rossland Miner.  EASY   GAME   FOR   J.   BULL.  While Uncle Sam is strug-g-ling" with  the difficulties of his own little seven-  by-nine war he mig*ht stop and reflect  that the Spanish-American difficulty  would seem like a trifling* affair to his  distinguished relative, John Bull.

P    P.  Mr- James Martin was the choice of  the Rossland Opposition convention  held on Wednesday last, and consequently will be the first member for  the district. The people Of Rossland  are strong* in their opposition but  weak in their punctuality. The convention was called for 8 o'clock and it  was nearly 9 before the delegates were  all present. Mr. Kirk at once took the  chair and a committee examined the  credentials and reported. " Mr. Ross of  Greenwood held proxies for all the  other delegates from Midway and  Greenwood and two proxies from  Grand Forks. Messrs. Manley, Addison and Davey of Grand Forks objected to Mr. Ross holding proxies  from Grand Forks delegates.  Mr. Ross explained how the delegates were appointed. He regretted  that a certain portion of the people of  Grand Forks had ^not sufficient confidence in the delegates who made the  objection to trust them with proxies,  but he . could not be held accountable  for this. The proxies were offered him  and he accepted them. The objection  was not considered by the  convention.  One of the delegates from Trail then  thoug*ht the voting* power from Boundary was too large.',,. Mr. Ross offered  to compromise by reducing the 'number  of his proxies from TO to 6. This was  agreeable to every one, and the platform was then considered and adopted.  IHii  PLATFORM.'  The   platform, as   adopted, demanas  a separate representation for Boundary  creek; the   readjustment  of   the   provincial representation ; the reorganization of the civil service, with a view to  greater economy ; liberal expenditures  for  publio   works ���; "discouragement  of  Oriental immigration".;' amendments to  the   land   act, sob that coal may be reserved as well as   minerais ; timber to  be disposed  of  by  open  competition ;  agricultural   land  to  be  reserved  for  actual settlers ; repeal of the mortg-age  tax; abolition of  the   miner's   license  as applied to   working   miners ; future  aids to railways   to   be  conditioned to  provincial control, both of the  raising  and expenditure of capital, the rates of  transportation and the  employment of  labor ; the regulation of the normal expenditure of the province  to meet the  normal   revenue; the  placing  of  coal  mines upon the same footing as metal-  iferous mines with regard to taxation ;  a   substantial   increase  on   the tax on  wild   lands;   that  eight   hours   constitute a day's labor on all public   works  and   underground, and  that six days  constitute a week's labor.  Messrs. James Martin, D. B. Bogle  Hugh M:Cutjheon and F. C. Cotton,  M. P. P. of Vancouver, were placed in  nomination. The latter nomination  ,wos nKule that Mr. Cotton might address the convention. After the  nominations the'public were admitted  and Dominion hall was soon crowded,  although the hour was late.  Messrs. Martin and Bogle endorsed  the platform in short but eloquent  speeches, and both declared their intention of   abiding b)*   the  decision of  the convention. Mr. McCutchebn retired in Mr. Martin's favor, and Mr.  Cotton delivered a splendid campaign  speech.  . The vote was then taken. Mr. Martin secured 24 votes and Mr. Bogle 10.  Mr. Martin was declared the choice of  the convention.  Cheers for Mr. Martin, Mr. Bogle  and the Queen broug*ht the convention  to a close.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE   CARSON   CONVENTION.  -f h''  }..;t  I  %  %  '&  The first meeting: at which all parts  of Boundary Creek were represented  was held at Carson on Saturday night.  Every section of the district from Cascade City to Rock Creek had its delegates all having- the same object in  view, the promotion of the interests of  Boundary Creek and the defeat of the  Turner government. The delegates  assembled in the cosy Oddfellow's hall  and Duncan Ross of Greenwood was  unanimously voted to the chair on  motion of Mr. Manly of Grand Forks.  Mr. McRae of Greenwood moved that  Mr. E. Spragget of Grand Forks act as  secretary and this was carried unanimously.  Messrs.     Murray    of   Midway   and  Matheson of Cascade City   were   then  appointed a committee on   credentials.  They   reported   as   follows:  Cascade City���-Mr.   Matheson.  Grand    Forks���Chas.     Hay,     John  Manly, E. Spraggett,   J.   Addison, W.  B. Davey,   Peter McCallum.^  Carson���D. McLaren.  Greenwood���Thps. Miller,   D. C. McRae, ' W...S.    Keith,   Duncan   Ross,    C.  Scott Galloway (by proxy)   and James  Kerr (by proxy).  Midway���Thos. McCauley, Hug*h  Murray and J. P. McLeod, (by proxy).  Mr. F. H. McCarter of Grand Forks  at the request of meeting* explained  what had been done at the previous  Rossland convention. It was then decided to send delegates to the Rossland  convention on June 8th and an effort  be made to secure for the Boundary  Creek the same representation at Rossland as at the Carson convention.  Mr. Chas. Hay at this stage delivered a short but eloquent address pointing out the disadvantages under which  Boundary Creek had been placed and  urging a united tight for the political  rights and political existence of the  district.  Many of the delegates then urged,  that a Boundary Creek man be placed  in nomination at the Rossland convention.  This was agreed to. A long discussion then ensued. The majority desired the candidate named then but others  deemed it wiser to defer the selection  until the delegates could have a caucus  in Rossland upon the day of nomination.  During the discussion Mr. \ Hay and  Mi*. Manly announced that they would  not be candidates. Mr. Hay, proposed  the name of Mr. Robert Wood of Greenwood. This would have been acceptable to the majority of the delegates  . but Mr. "Wood was absent and there  was no means of ascertaining if he  would consent to anomiiicition.  Mr. W. B. Dave}7- then nominated  Mr. Ross. Mr. Ross refused to allow  this resolution to be voted upon until  it could be seen if there was any other  Boundary Creek man available. He  pointed out that the convention had  decided to nominate a Boundary Creek  man and it was apparent there was no  Boundar3' Creek man anxious to secure  the nomination.  Mr. Spraggett suggested that instead  of pledging the delegates to support a  Boundary Creek man they should be  pledged to support a Boundary Creek  nomination.  The whole question was left in abeyance until the delegates could meet at  Rossland on Wednesday. It was felt  that whatever course the delegates  would then take, they would act as a  Boundary Creek unit.  The meeting which had been harmonious though a spirited one adjourned  at midnight. ��  CONTRACTORS   AT   ROSSLAND.  On the Spokane Falls & Northern  railway northbound train this morning  will be a large delegation of contractors. ", They are going to Robson in connection with the building of the Colttm-  bia & Western Railway from Robson  to Midway.  Yesterday H. G. Coykendall and G.  Foley, two well known St. Paul contractors, arrived in the city and will be  among the northbound delegation this  morning. Mr. Coykendall told a  Spokesman-Review reporter yesterday  that he was not interested so far in the  contracts. It is evident he expects to  be, or it may be that he is interested  with Mackenzie & Mann. Formerly  he was a contractor on the Great Northern railway. ,  Mr. Foley is a member of the firm of  Foley Bros. This firm with Peter parson of Helena and Mackenzie & Mann  pooled their interests and have taken  the contract for the construction of the  work. Mr. Foley was reticent in regard to the matter. Asked as to the  statement that has been made, that the  contract will amount to between $3,500-  000 and $4,000,000, he said he thought  the correct figures would be between  $2,000,000 and $3,000,000.  The contracting firm will at once establish headquarters at Robson and  proceed to let out sub-contracts.  ' These sub-contracts are those in  which the local contractors are so much  interested. There will be sub-contracts for grading, for stonework, for  furnishing ties and for all the different  portions of the construction. "The successful bidders have taken the contract  for the entire construction, including  grading, bridging, tracklaj-ingy furnishing and lai'ing ties���in fact, doing  everything but putting in the equipment. The line is to be 105 miles long.  One of the contractors, said yester-  da}' from 3000 to 5000 men will be employed. The3r will come from all over  the country, many from Canada. Yvrork  will be started at once. It is understood the agreement is to rush it  through to an early completion. It  was stated'yesterday b}r a contractor  that the line may be completed and  ready for business inside of a year.���  Spokesman-Review.
