LAND GRABS  Kai-en Island Scandal and Evasion of  of Taxes.  Smith Curtis, ex-M. P. P., delivered  FURNISHINGS  DRY GOODS  Ulu address  at Ymir on" the" 9th  inst,  He spoke in part as follows:  Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen : I  have labeled my address tonight ''Pro  vincial Graft and Policy."  This is the age of grab and graft. It*  is also the time of graft exposure,  awakened public conscience, indignation, retribution. The time when the  almighty dollar is everything and  .truth and honor of little account is  passing and the time ma}* come when  the holder of dirty, tainted dollars will  be shunned by decent people as though  he wore a felon's stripes.  Graft is political. The remedy is  finally with the voter. His political  action must be honest, courageous,  letting no partisan or other consideration suppress his voice or vote on behalf of. the right. There is no other  way to political salvation. Though  the way is narrow it is straight. Truth,  courageous honesty, equity, light the  way! The representative will be no  better than the electors, he is often  somewhat worse, but never.so when he  has flagrantly broken his trust and is  reelected* Even the grafters and their  numerous news organs pay at least  this tribute to virtue���they roundly  denounce the graft of others. The3-  flay the New York insurance frauds;  they applaud Governor Folk for routing the boodlers of Missouri. But  what about the grafts obtaining in  British Columbia, under the noses of  the graft organs ? Do you hear even  a whisper of these, let alone the reiteration and reiteration of the facts  that are requisite to bring redress and  punishment.-  The Hon. Richard McBride, provincial premier, has long been a valued  friend of mine, but friendship shall not  stifle the voice of duty.  GRAFTS.  Graft is greedy dishonesty, robbing  the masses and the poprer,people. The  provincial government has shown that  it is ready to sacrifice the pioneer, the  prospector, the grubstaker, who take  big odds, and without whom the province, new, rugged, wi'd, vast, cannot  be developed. The prizes, as most of  us now, regretfully know, are few and  far between. When some one���old-  timer or tenderfoot���strikes it rich, let  him have his find, but the-government  says no, despoil him for some corporation, made up of mostly foreign shareholders, too.  Graff No. 1���Take the Kai-en island  case. Holders of South African war  scrip.two years ago locate it on Kai-en  island. Some option their locations to  the Grand Trunk Pacific railway. It  is a probable terminus for the railway.  Then the government gets busy. It  refuses the locations saying that a reserve put some years ago on the adjacent mainland also covers the island.  Some locators demur, ask for a fiat  that the courts may decide the point  and are refused it by the government.  If there was positively a reserve why  refuse ?'��� There could be no loss, and  the claim of the locators that they have  been defrauded would not be heard. If  doubt existed then it were only common honesty to let the courts resolve  it, otherwise the government may be  robbing these loca'ors of valuable  property, made theirs by .-the laws of  the land. Was there a reserve ? Reading the notice claimed to make the reserve I. would say emphatically no.  The actions of the government show,  the falsity of its claim. A few months  after the locations were made the government puts a reserve on the island.  Would it do that if there , were already  a reserve on it ? -Then the government  has by an official document declared  that there was no reserve on the island  and this official.document makes it  possible'tb test the'so-calle'd reserve in  the courts without the formality of a  fiat. It has issued a crown grant to.a  mineral claim on Kai-en island, located since the first reserve, and has  not excepted out of the crown grant  the surface rights as it would be bound  to do were there a reserve .as it claims.  Its own act proves its claim to be a  downright falsehood. Clearly the  province is thus made liable for enormous damages if this really becomes  the terminal city- of the railway. Justice by a dishonest government may be  deferred but as in the case of the Nanaimo settlers, robbed of their rights  by a grafting railway scheme, after 20  years' delay, redress is given. The  government authorized to maintain  the; 1 awboldly defies^ it,   ajid^brings it  BOARD  OF   TRADE  At Public Meeting It Is Reorganized.  OFFICERS  ARE  ELECTED  into ill-repute with the masses. Two  grand principles of Magna Charta, the  bulwark of English liberty, have been  trampled upon. " We will not deny or  defer to any man either justice or  right." "No freeman shall be disseized of his land." So runs the Great  Charter, but it is a dead letter to the  McBride government. With the refusal of the locations a sinister thing  happens. Secret negotiations for the  land begins with the railway. A secret  order in council on the 4th of May,  1904, is passed���I say secret order, because more than a year after, it was  being carried around in the pocket of a  minister and has not even yet seen the  light of day. Is that pocket the proper  repository of important documents of  state? If the deal was clean and right  why this secrecy? With very questionable authority under the Laud Act on  the 10th of March last, while the legislators sat, a crown grant was secretly  issued to the railway for 10,000 acres of  land on this island and adjacent mainland for the paltry consideration of  310,000. If this is the best available  site for terminus then had the locations  been allowed the options on them  would have been taken up at a substantial price. Why should not the  government get as good a price? The  government says it gets one-fourth of  the town lots. It could not prevent  that; the Land Act exacts it, and it  would have got the same had it allowed the locations. But the crown  grant also makes a free gift ot the  foreshore above and below higi* water  mark���a frontage of 25 miles or so embracing extensive tide flats and proo-  ably amounting to thousands of acres.  The government can call for one-forth  of the water lots back. What does the  (Continued on Page."-.)  The  Question   of Freight Rates Is  Then Discussed and a Committee Appointed, *'  A meeting of the Board of Trade and  citizens of Greenwood interested in the  question of freight rates was held this  week to discuss ways and means of  securing for the business men of this  city 'more favorable rates on merchandise. Duncan Ross, M. P��� was appointed to the chair and in his opening  remarks he pointed out that the railways were discriminating against  Greenwood and in favor of Nelson.  He quoted figures to show the difference in rates on some staple lines of  goods, in favor of Nelson, amounted  to more than the merchant's profit in  Greenwood. The chairman urged that  the meeting take action, drawing the  attention of the Great Northern offi-,  cials to the large amount of traffic that  is handled every month by Greenwood  merchants and the mines Jand smelters  :and that a rate as favorable as that of  Nelson be given Greenwood.   ���  Upon the chairman resuming his ssat  G. R. Naden offered as a motion that  the board of trade be the organization  through which the matter be taken up.  This was seconded by P. W. McLaine  and the meeting then proceeded to reorganize the board and elect officers as .  -follows: -W; T." Hunter, president, and  H. O. Lamb, secretary.  ; After the election of these officers  the question before the meeting was  discussed further. J. E. McAllister  thought the time premature for petitioning the Great Northern for favorable rates to Greenwood until they had  built into the town. It was much more  important to induce that railway to  extend their line to Greenwood. He  would suggest that a memorial, well  reinforced with facts as to the freight  distributed in the Boundary district  and the amount of business done, be  sent to the Great Northern officials as  a means of inducing them to buLd to  Greenwood.  Mr.   Hunter   expressed   himself as  heartily in favor of such  a  movement  and^wished���to-see ^the-question-of-  freight rates   in   the Boundary   thoroughly gone into.  T. R. Drummond, manager of the  Dominion Copper Co., spoke of the efforts he had put forth to secure better  terms from the C. P. R and of his  dealings with the Great Northern. He  had found a strong feeling of jealousy  between the officials of the two railways and it was his opinion that the  Great Northern is anxious to secure  running rights over the C. P, R. into  Greenwood rather than build a line of  their own. It was pointed out in the  meeting that such an arrangement  would put the town at the mercy of  two railways without affording the  benefits of actual competition.  After some further discussion Mr.  Naden brought things to a head by  moving that a committee of the Board  of Trade be appointed Jo prepare a  memorial, such as was first proposed  by Mr. McAllister, and forward it to  the officials of the Great Northern  railway.  The committee appointed \vere W. T.  Hunter, J. E. McAllister, G, R. Naden,  ihe secretary and C. H. Fair. Before  the meeting adjourned Mr. Ross suggested some steps that the Board of  Trade might take to help ihe city  There should be a lively interest taken  in the welfare of the town by all the  members and the young men should be  encouraged to lend lheir assistance  and to do all in their power to make  the town more prosperous. Among  other things a campaign of advertising might be entered upon, making  known the resources and advantages  of Greenwood.

The annual financial statement,  of. Boundary Valley Lodge No.  38 has been  issued  and  will be  found on another  the least it is  Presbyterians Hold Their Annual Meeting and Report Good Progress  The annual congregational  meeting* of the St. Columba  Presbyterian akurch was held  Monday evening and was largely  attended by members and' adherents. The reports of the  various societies connected with  the church were given. The report of the session showed that  there was an increase in the roll  of communicants. A new board  of managers and other officers  were elected, among which were  several new names, and the outlook for the coming 3-ear is very  encouraging? With "the increasing population coming into the  district and the better prevailing  financial condition of the Greenwood citizens it was thought  there should be a very substantial  gain during the present year.  A great share of the good results obtained during the past  year can be directly attributed to  the earnest work done by the  pastor and his wife, Rev. and  Mrs. M. D. McKee.  The financial statement showed  that $1,500' had been collected  during the 3*ear and $50 contributed to missions. Kenneth  McKenxie was the chairman of  the meeting and F. A., Brown  was elected congregational secretary. ' The board of managers  tor the year are A. M.?Whiteside,  J. S. Birnie, D. C. McRae? A. B.  Docksteader, E. W. Bishop, H.  McCutcheon, S. C. Holman, S.  Belt and T. F. Sutherland;  Reports were also received  from the Sunday school, the  Christian Endeavor society and  the Ladies' Aid, After the busi-  ness-meetiug adjourned refreshments'1 were  served by the ladies.  A RICH STRIKE.  A rich veiu of ore has been struck at  the Strathmore. For some time work  has been vigorously prosecuted in the  new tunnel until after a length of  about-thirty feet had been reached, a  lead of ore about eight inches wide was  struck. This is the best strike aniong  the high grade mines for some time;  It is estimated the ore will run from  $100 to $150 per toil, The work will be  rapidly pushed forward and the output  will be increased.  License Bylaw Will Be Considered-  Committees Appointed.  The first meeting of the new  city council was held Monday  evening. All members were  present and were sworn in by  Police Magistrate Hallett. The  mayor gave notice that an amendment to the license bylaw would  be introduced later. Tlie object  of this is to reduce the number  of possible licenses from seventeen to thirteen, the number now  in force. It is also proposed to  increase the license fee so that  the city- treasury will not suffer  by the reduction in possible numbers.  The attention of the water  committee was called to the condition of the old water tank aud  they will be expected to make  some necessar}- repairs,  Alderman Bunting introduced  the question of better accommodations for the free library, but  the matter was not discussed at  any length and will probably  come up for consideration at a  later date.

With  theattorney-peneral trying to get loose  a little of the frontage cinch of the C.  P. R. in Vancouver the government  jrives a bigcer cinch to the G. T. P.  Knowing-that the tide flats of Seattle  are now worth millions of dollars, the  government makes p straight present  of flats that in a few years may be  equally valuable. Are you satisfied  with this as a business, or do you think  this a colossal graft ?  Graft No. 2���The C P. R. is the star  grafter in this province. Its power in  the lands department in the time of  the Dunsmuir government became a  nastv scandal. It has got a new grip  and appears to be even more powerful  today; and equally to the disadvantage  of the hardv prospector and pioneer as  in the case already cited.  In 1899 in defiance of the subsidy  act, of 1890, in aid of the B. C. Sonth-  ern railway (really C. P. R , now  known as the Crow's Nest branch) the  government granted Lot 4589, embracing five hundred thousand acres of  ' land to the railway. The aid act said  the "lands to be, granted shall be surveyed at the expense of the company."'  "To be granted," mark you, not after  being granted. The land act required  lands surveyed preceding crown grant,  for how otherwise could they be described or how would any one know  ���what lands'* were' open to location?  There are other considerations that in  dicate that-this grant is wholly invalid. This land adjoins on the west  .the block in the very southeast corner  of the province that the C. P. R. tried  in defiance of the law to filch away  from the province, getting crown  grant 'therefor that the legislature  cancelled three years ago and is now  ifflf ft it��n^u***j+***j*^jim��  covered with hundreds of coal and oil  locations.   'Locators were informecVby  a C. P. R. official on the ground where  the east line  of that Lot 4589 was located    The prospectors made locations  to   the   east  accordinaly.    They   discovered  big coal  croppings,   and foolishly informed  the pfficiol of the fact.  What happens?   After a time the C.  P.  R.  cooly  claims that   Block  4589  is to be moved two miles  east so as to  gobule up the locations referred to and  dozens of ethers. The locators referred  to had asked the government where the  C. P. R. land was and had got -a copy  of the crown grant with map attached.  The description  in   the   grant starts  from a point not  known   even yet, and  then  declared the land   to be "more  particularly  indicated   on   the sketch  plan thereto annexed and colored red."  Why does it say "more particularly indicated ?"   Because the map was   to  govern and was the best description in  the wrongful absence of surveys. Now  the southwest corner of Lot 4589 on  that map was also the southwest corner of surveyed Lot 343 at the junction  of Kootenay   river  with  the international boundary  and  from  this point  Lot 4589   can be definitely fixed and  not otherwise. That Lot 343 and many  other previously granted lots shown on  that  sketch   plan   are   expressly excluded from the grant by apt words.  The C. P.  R.  by moving their block  lines two miles to the east leave these  lots clear outside of Lot 4589 so that  the   written  description becomes absurd.   Locators appeal to the government which  has taken   thousands  of  dollars from them in location  fees to  protect their rights.   It turns a deaf  ear.    The poor man  is  nothing.   The  Associated  Boards of Trade last year  urged it to intervene, with no response.  Meantime work on the locations and  renewal fees become due.   If the fees  are   paid   the government will   keep  them even if the prospector is in  the  end euchered out of his land and work.  Many abandon their claims and the  country remains undeveloped. Mark  this, the whole trouble has arisen from  the railway getting, bv <a pull, a shifting crown grant without surveys it  was bound to make or pay for. Should  it now be allowed to use its own wrong  to beat the innoeent locator out of his  finds ? Will you support the government in allowing this graft because it  does not directly affect vou? But if  this shifting is permitted it does affect,  you vitally. The public lands of this  province belong to all of us. There is  another big erraft behind this shifing  of lines.  Graft No. 3���For the B. C. Southern  railway the C. P. R. has received almost 4,000,000 acres in big blocks without survey. The acreage was computed from the sketch plans attached  to the grant. Three blocks front. on  the railway, and owing to its sinuosities the blocks are. many miles longer  on the east than on the west side. Shift  one block and you shift all three two  miles to the east and they take in long  strips and give up short ones. One  block fronts on the east of Kootenay  lake for 64 miles. It would go east two  miles and give up .nothing as it would  still front on the lake. This little  shifting scheme if permitted will defraud the province���that is all of us���  out of 175,000 to 200,000 acres of land  worth half a million dollars, probably  double that sum. Will you stand that  graft ?  Graft No. 4���But there is another  huge graft of the C. P. R. in connection with that B. C. Southern land  grant that is going on every year, and  the finance minister, Hon. Mr. Tatlow,  knows it well, for I drew his attention  to it after he got office, and he promised  to look into it.

The Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has created a New Era  in Poultry Raising.  The setting Hen as a Hatchei  has been proven a Commercial  Failure.  The Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has always proved a  Money Maker.  A Light, Pleasant and Profitable Business for Women  Many women are to-day making an independent living and putting by money every  month raising poultry with a Chatham Incubator.  Any woman with a little leisure time at her  disposal can, without any previous experience  or without a cent of cash, begin the poultry  business aud make money right from tlie start.

If not, we c.in give you the names of many who  htartcd with much misgiving only to bo surprised by tlie ease and rapidity with which the  proJits came to themr  Of course, success depends on getting a  right start.

R. influence was all powerful. Legislation wp.s cunningly devised to hoodwink the legislature and yet effect the  object of the coal and railway grafters.  For years there has been a tax of 5  cents per ton on all coal raised. There  is a 5 cent royalty which does not  apply to Dunsmuir���another reason  why he should not escape taxation on  great areas of unused coal lands. The  scheme resorted lo was this: The  Taxation Act was amended whereby a  shipping c6al mine had as many acres  exempt as then coal tax and royalty  paid would cover at 25 cents per acre.  Thus Dunsmuir can hold one or two  hundred thousand acres exempt from  taxes, so can other coal companies,  and by gobbling up the acreage where  pit mouths are possible, stifle all competition and keep up the excessive  prices of coal that prevail. But even  this enormous concession was not  enough. While the rest of us have  now to pay 4 per cent, on any wild  lands we hold, the coal nabobs, who  still have coal lands not covered by the  25 eents an acre exemption, have the  tax on such excess lands cut down to  one per cent. Do you think the government is in the hands of the big  corporation grafters or not?  Had I time to take up the timber  land taxes and the taxes on timber cut  on lands without royalty reserved I  could show you how Finance Minister  Tatlow has failed to enact what he  literally howled for in opposition. Opposition tall talk is no criterion of the  man's metal. Office is a furnace seven  times hotter and separates the gold  from the dross. I am sorry to see so  much of the latter in Mr. Tatlow's  case,   I expected better of him, indeed.  .Graft No. 6���I now come to another  instance of C. P. R. rapacity, which  for the time failed, but in some shaoe  or form is certain to appear again at  Victoria this winter. The C. P. R.  bought a charter to build a railway  from Spence's Bridge through the  Similkameen. There was annexed a  Dominion subsidy of $6,400 per mile as  far as Nicola, Last session the McBride government proposed to its followers to give $1,600,000 subsidy to this  road. Some of the followers kicked  and this graft was still-born. The fact  is interesting as throwing a'lurid light  on the C. P. R. influence at Victoria.  Here was Jim Hill" actually constructing a railway through the Similka  meen,'asking no aid whatever, and the  government seeing the growth of industry was gradually increasing the  revenue, prepared to throw the surplus  away, and let districts suffering for  public works, etc., continue to suffer.  Let all credit be given Mr. McCowan,  Mr. Wright, Mr. Shatford and others  who prevented that enormous graft,  but will they have the courage to oppose new grafts and to cut off those I  have already dealt with ? I hope so,  but I have fears, too.  Graft No. 7���The domination of the  C. P. R. over the gavernment and its  lands department I hBve shown. I  now come Joa^tartling example of it  that puts Hon. R. F. Green, chief commissioner of lands, and fides achates  to the premier, in a sorry light. Will  you believe that as to 800,000 acres of  land belonging to the province, vacant  and open to location under the Land  Act, the C. P. R. has for months to  the knowledge of the government,  been offering it for sale as the C. P.  R's own, and that as often as locators  have applied for portions of it to the  governmpnt, its officials tell them to  apply to the C. P. R.? It if absolutely  true, and timber and other locators are  being denied and defrauded of their  rights for which an honest government  will have to compensate them at our  expense. To these lands the C. P. R.  has no more title than it has to your  house and lot. Gf Jail the vile land  scandals in this province this is the  most unblushing.  In 1896 a land subsidy to the Columbia and Western railway, now the C.  P. R. branch from Rossland to Midway, was granted. It was provided in  section 5 that "no lanes shall be  granted which are not designated and  surveyed by the company within seven  years from the passing of this Act."  No survey was made within the time  limit, and the company lost any right  it might otherwise have had. The  Dunsmuir government obtained the  governor's signature to an order and  crown grants for 794,444 acres tin plain  contravention of the act���in fact,  illegally. I can call the ministers  themselves to prove this; and that the  lieutenant-governor was induced to  sanction this illegality,this graft worth  millions, by order in council to which  the governor's signature is attached,  No. 250, dated May 2, 1905, it is ex  pressly stated that '* The company has  applied for a grant of certain lands but  IT   APPEARS    THAT   THE ' LIEUTENANT-  GOVERNOR    HaS    NO   POWER  TO    MAKE  SUCH GRANT in virtue of the provisions  of Section 5 of the Subsidy Act,"\vhich  I have quoted to'you. But order in  council No. 87, passed February 14,  1905, declares expressly that the 794,-  444 acres granted by the Dunsmuir  government "have not yet been surveyed by the company," and therefore  the illegality of that grant is expressly  declared by these orders, both bearing  the governor's signature, and the  country has been defrauded. Is it not  the duty of the government to apply  to the courts to cancel this grant. Certainly, most certainly, it is, and it is  its duty to the governor whom it has  in the two orders quoted made to declare over his signature that his signing the grant made was wrongful.  But so far from doing that, the ministers actually pledge themselves by that  order, No. 260, if surveys are mean ���  time made, "that at the next session of  the legislature an act will be introduced by the*government to grant to  the company the said 808,872 acres of  land," in addition to that already  granted.' To this .proposed new graft  the -order admits the C. P. R. has no  title or right whatever. *lf it had title  no act of the legislature would be  needed. It is<.these last acres, known  as blocks 1 to 13 on the C. P. R. advertising map, and extending from Little  Slocan lake to Okanagan lake, that  the C. P. K. is now selling as its own.  The government's promise to bring in  an act is so much waste paper until approved by the legislature and governor.  This approval should not be given.  Meantime, any one is free to locate  these lands and' locators should stick  to their holdings whether such an act  is approved or not. A gauzy falsehood  is put in the order as to the. company's  failure to survey and is the accepted  ground for the government's promise.  Though all lands granted are to be  taxed ten years after acquisition, and  acquisition was : to, ;be from time to  time as sections-were built, there is no  hint by the government that its proposed measure will make the lands  taxable after ten years from the building of the sections, otherwise half this  land would be as it should be, taxable  in 1907, and the rest in 1909. The company will refuse until ten years after  crown grant, thus escaping several  years'taxes. So here is another tax  graft being worked by the C. P. R.  About this railway the record of the: C.  P. R. is not nice. For years, by political pull, it prevented Cprbin getting  a charter to build into the Boundary,  finally Mr.j Shaughnessy had to promise to build without aid, as Corbin offered to do, -then it buys Heinze out  and cinches this land grant. Then we  have its dastardly attempt in 1901 to  get the coal and oil lands of Southeast  Kootenay as part of the grant, in 1902  the attempt was made to get in addition to what it is now after, 900,000  cares to which it had not a shadow of  claim. In 1900 Joseph Martin opposed  its getting an acre. After abandoning  his principles he hoisted the black  flag of the political pirate and spoke in  favor of this graft, but the scheme  A\.as defeated. __ Fraud.vitiates a con  tract. Who comes for "justice must  come with clean hands. It does us up  at every turn. It has no moral, claim  beyond its legal claim. The volunteer  to the South African war does not ask  for extra time to locate his land scrip.  He locates within the time limit or  loses his right without complaint.  Mr. Cartis closed with a strong ' denunciation of these grafts and suggested a strong and progressive policy  for the development of the resources of  the province.

The hospital ambulance for which  the people of Greenwood have been  looking for some time has arrived and  is being kept at the Palace stables,  Copper street. It is a handsome vehicle  complete in every particular and as up-  to-date as those used in the large cities.  It has heavy rubber tires and the  wheels are fitted with brakes. The  sides are marked with the usual red  cross. The interior is roomy and well  furnished. Two sliding stretchers are  fitted to the floor on which patients  can be carried from the ambulance  into the hospital. A folding seat is  attached to the inside for the use of  attendants. Several large windows  supply plenty of light.  The new ambulance has cost in all  $809:50, of which $164.50 was for  freight, the balance of S645 being the  cost at. the factory in Phil-edelphia.  The total cost is much less than it  would have been had not the Great  Northern railway charged only half  fate~f r^mTS F^Pliai^aifvd-the^custdms-  authorities considerately thrown off  all duty charges.  The movement to secure this necessary -public conveyance was first inaugurated when the ladies of Greenwood gave a ball last year and donated  the receipts, amounting to about $100,  to start an ambulance fund. Later on  subscriptions to the extent of $500 were  secured from the people of the city  through the efforts of the city physicians. The balance of the cost will be  borne by the city council. The city  officials and all those interested are  well pleased with the appearance and  usefulness of the vehicle and it is be-  | lieved that a long-felt want has been  satisfactorily filled.
