C. FRIDAY   JANUARY 4, 1907.  No. 18  istory  Of the Columbia and Western Railway and  its   Relation   to   British1 .Columbia   Politics.  The Columbia & Weatern Railway  company was incorporated by thjj.reg-  islature of British Columbia ,-itf the  year 1896, with power to build a line of.  railway from Trail, on the' Columbia  rirer, to Okanagan ,-"ake, and from  Trail to the International boundary in  a southeasterly direction.  The promoters then asked the legislature for a land subsidy, amounting,  for a bro.id gauge road, to 20,000 acres  per mile.  These promoters represented to the  members of the legislature that immense bodies of low grade ores existed  in the district to be traversed by this  road, and that the construction of this  road would afford the requisite transportation facilities necessary to allow  these immense ore bodies to be mined  and smelted iu British Columbia, and  that   by   connecting   this   road   with(  ���:������]  ���team barges upon Okanagan lake, aud [tiod of thisSjrailway. they ar?  these barges again with  the Shuswap  kanagan railway and the main line  of'the C. P. R.!, a new and  more direct  ii '..-*'"11 j  roite between jthe coast cities ami the  . -|i        . i '      .  mines in ithe Boundary Creek district  an" the.iJaines of Rossland would be  i        >'    -'J  op med u��.   It was represented that the  op'ning of this new route and the inert ised traffic which would undoubtedly result would make the Shuswap &  ���Okanagan railway a paying instead of  a Using concern. Iu addition to this,  that it-would.jlead to the settlement and  improvement^ of all the available lands  not only contiguous to the railway it-  i      ! I     -  I*.     ' .  self, but also/the lands surrounding the  Okanagan1, lake, and would provide the  very best possible market for the agricultural' products of the Okanagan and  -1     '-'    -'lv  Spallumacllien valleys.  Tb   summarize   the  benefit's   which  Were to be'-tferived from the construc-  3d of tli  ' The develupment of our mineral resources.  The smelting of our ores in .British  Columbia.  The development of our agricultural  resources, from the Columbia river  through to Sicarnous, converting the  Shuswap & Okanagan railway from a  losing to a paying proposition.  Diverting to the coast cities the trade  which was going south to the United  States.  Upon these representations, and  having in view the attaining of the  above results, the legislature iu 1896  passed an act to subsidize the Columbia  & Western railway to the extent of  10,240 per mile for a narraw gauge  road, or 20,000 acres per mile for a  standard gauge road, for that portion  of its. road from Trail to Okanagan,  --upo.t the conditions of their constructing the said Columbia & Western  railway withiu the time and according  to the terms of their Act of Incorpora -  tion," to use the words of the Act itself,  It will be observed that the granting  of the subsidy was conditioned upon  two   essential   points,   namely:     The  in.**..:���pj*-Y"---"-v  l-;llw Year  AND  Thank Ybu- for Your Patronage  ''  '     ' \.-v      \ ���  During  COMPLETION OF THE ROAD TO   OKANAG -  an lake, that being what the Act of  Incorporation called for, and within  the time mentioned, which was five  ye*-rs from the 17th of April, 1896.  To emphasize the condition in respect  to the time, the company were required  to give security to the extent of $50,000,  which was to be forfeited to the Province in case of failure to build within  the time mentioned.  The subsidy was made payable from  time to time as the work progressed.  Thus the lands earned by the construe  tion of Sections one and three were  payable when these sections were built;  the subsidy for Section four was pay  able when Section five was built and  the subsidy for Sections five and six  when the whole road was completed,  but no land was to be granted that had  not been surveyed according to the  land laws of the Province.  The history of the road as to construction may be summarized thus-  First section, Trail to Robson.built,  Second section, Spur to International  boundary, not built. Third section,  Robson to Christina lake, built. Fourth  section, Christina Lake to Midway,  built. Fifth and sixth sections, Midway to Penticton, not built.  Tha company claimed and had  granted to it the land subsidy for Section one and part of Section three.  This laud was not then, and is not  yet surveyed.  The subsidy, while it might be earned as construction went on, was based  upon the construction of the whole  road to Okanagan lake,-and" NO lank  wa3 to be granted that was not designated and surveyed within seven years  from the passing of the Subsidy Act  (17th April, 1896). The company not  having complied'with either of these  such that the government at the 1902  session of the legislature introduced  Bill 87, under the terms of which not  only would the company have been  enabled to obtain the coal and oil  lands in Southeast Kootenay, but they  would have been able to choose choice  lands to the extent of -nearly two millions of acres anywhere .in Yale and  Kootenay districts. This bill was so  strongly opposed, chiefly by Curtis,  Oliver and Kidd )iwberala), that the  Government withdrew the measure.  It was in connection with this bill  that the company set up a new and  fictitious claim to the effect that in the  year 1898, at the request of the government of British Columbia, the Colum- >  bia & Western Railway company surrendered their right to build that portion of their railway between Midway  and Penticton (Okanagan lake), and  consequently that they were entitled to  the subsidy for that portion of the road  built, although the company had failed  to carry out the provisions of the Subsidy Act.  The investigation of 1903 completely  proved the falsity of this claim, and it  would not have been worth mentioning  not were it not for the fact that this  false claim has . been revived, and: it  may do duty as the main reason for the  passing of the bill of (1906), granting  to the railway company over 800,000  acres claimed as balance of subsidy for  Section three.  If the company surrendered its rights  to build Sections five and six, as  claimed by the rai'way company, and  by the McBride- government,, then ��� it -  follows that the company would have  an equitable claim for the land subsidy  for Section four, and there can be no  doubt that the passage of the Act of  this session strengthens the position of  conditions, lost all claim to the lands.   the company if they should come again  THO^l&S  DRUG  CO.

P. R.,  refused to ratify the proposed agreement, the company had still four years  and claim a land grant on account of  Section four.  That it is the intention of the company and of the' McBride government  that the railway company may come  again in respect to Section four, is evident by the fact that the government  refused to allow an amendment to the  Act of this year to the effect that land  granted should be in full of all that the  railway company claimed.

The company claim that they were  further delayed in making their surveys on account of certain negotiations  between them and the Dunsmuir government in 1901 and 1902. looking to  an exchange of lands in the Boundary  Creek district for lands in Southeast  Kootenay.  This was the notorious attempt of  the C. P. R. to get the two immensely  valuable coal and oil blocks is East  Kootenay, and which was frustrated  by Messrs. Oliver, Curtis and others,  in the session of 1903.  The various transactions which led  up to the transaction just mentioned,  which had for its object the spoliation  of the province to an enormous extent,  were participated in by Mr. McBride,  who was then minister of mines. The  order in council giving these coal and  oil lands to the company was passeJ at  a meeting of the executive, where it  appears to have been decided by  Messrs. Eberts, Turner and McBride.  Owing to the refusal of Mr. Weils  to deliver the crown grants to the r il-  way company, and the passing of an  order in council cancelling same, the  railway company were foiled for the  time being, but they still persisted in  their efforts at spoliation, and the influence exercised through their executive agent, Mr. G-.  McLr. Brown,  was  800,000 acres was before the house that  the terms of the original Subsidy Act  had been varied by agreement between  the railway company .And .the .government in 1898-9.   This absolutely false.  An agreement was proposed, a copy  of which may be seen.in the Journals  of the house (1S*03, p. 741), but the government refused to .sign the agreement  ���Journals 1903, p. 749 750).  Yet in the face of these records the  premier and his colleagues boldly made  the assertion that the railway company  was relieved of its obligation to complete the road to Penticton.  Their frenzy for giving away public  assets   blind   them even  to  the  factsc  contained in the public records.  Again, in December, 1890, the railway company opened up negotiations  with Mr Cotton on the same subject,  but no agreement was reaohed.  To show conclusively that the railway company were not release from  the completion of the whole road by  anything which happened before 1901,  the legislature in 1901 extended for  three years the time for completion of  Sections five and six, the final s--ctious  of the road.  In 1903 the exposure of the conspiracy between the government and the  railway company took  place, and  Continued on Last Page. BLMHi.. ���' fmyvmCT-fr .re., ���,,���, ff  ?1?��  '.ft  :ek times.

If all tbe people of the United  States and Canada could ride over  the Great Northern rail-way Hues  between Midway and Spokane  and return, there is no doubt that  the chain of custom forts along  the international boundarv line  would be yoted out of existence.  From Midway to Marcus, a distance of sixty miles say, the traveler is kept so busy going up  against the brass buttons that he  has no time to read or rest, and  when he has reached Marcus he  is in doubt whether he rode on  the cars or walked through and  carried his grip.  At Ferry he is pounced upon  by a Yankee, at; Danville the  Canadian gots even, while at  Laurier the Yankee again" gets in  his work? This is too much for  Canadian zeal to stand, for hasn't  the American dived' twice'into  that valise ^ hich . fthe-= Canadian'  has only upset once. And so the  traveler is persuaded to take the  return trip, perhaps, when the  Canadian can officially slug him  twice while the American swats  him once. The traveler on this  bit of road will some day learn to  carry his tooth brush in his vest  and his pajamas in his hip pocket  and defy red tape.  LAND. 7  ,. Everywhere there is a rush, not  only to the land, but for the land.  The number- of those going on  the land is increasing. Another  large number of. people is buying  land to be kept for three, four or  five years in the care of the selling firm until brought to a productive point. All over the states  of Washington, Oregon and California has the latter/plan been in  progress for years. -But? now the  plan seems to be. coming into  favor in British Columbia. Not  only are large numbers of people  seeking the productive lands of  the coast and the Okanagan for  immediate settlement, but in the  Kootcnays, the Okanagan and  elsewhere. Fruit trees are being  planted by the hundreds of thousands, for those who are later to  care for  them.    What does this  ^mean?^=Is"the-old-=land���instinct  of  man  asserting : itself,  or  are  people coming to see that the  competitive strain of modern life  is too great for men beyond middle life, and a healthy, pleasant,  safe, and withal, ? profitable employment is seen in fruit culture  for the declining years?  EDITORIAL NOTES  To show that the Chinese are  iu no sense up-to-date, it may be  mentioned that although there  are several hundred Chinese classics dealing with the matter of  filial regard and respect to elders,  there are no words in the language to correspond with our pet  phrases of "the old man" and the  ������governor" and such. The slang  of the Chinese vocabulary is confined to phrases borrowed from  the English.  Russia's glory would seem to  be in dead men. Although the  Japs slew.them by the thousands,  and although the government is  slaying them likewise by thou-  srnds in the course of its pretended reform making, the government is decreeing others to  death in more deliberate fashion.  The latest victim to Russia's benign rule is Admiral Negobatoff,  who is sentenced to die because  he surrendered to Japan.  Thr Great Northern railway is  meeting with opposition in Minnesota on its plans to increase its.  capital stock sixty millions. In  many corporations this constant  iiacrease of stock is necessary in  order ;to get rid of the accumulated surplus of profits. When  the rate; of interest is restricted  the stockholders must be- protected. It seems absurd to the  big ones to make betterments out  of profits.  . There is only one step, and a  short oue, betweensanity and insanity, in most men, it is said.  A great many people think that  the jury who found Sidney, Sloane  "not guilty" of murder, just  simply insane, have taken that  step.  If the governments of Canada  and the United States will insist  on any interference with the railways in the interests of the people, why need we wonder at a'  fuel famine. "Freezing out" is  an old game with the "big boys."  That .we may realize that  British Columbia is making some  headway these days, it may be  mentioned that one-half of Canada's fish catch of twenty millions  in'1905 was made in this province?

"Before we can sympathize vrith  others, we must have suffered ourselves." No one can realize the suffering attendant upon an attack of the  grip, unless he has had the actual experience. There is probably no disease  that causes so much physical and  mental agony, or which so successfully  .defies medical aid. All danger from  the grip, however, may be avoided by  the prompt use of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy.

Once more Zam-Buk, the great herbal  balm, has been proved vastly superior  to ordinary remedies, and. has cured  where other preparations had signally  failed. Three children in- oue family  have been healed by it. This not only  shows the po\ver of Zam-Buk, but goes  to prove how beneficial its i>ure herbal  ingredients are to the delicate skin of  children.  Mrs. J. C. Bates, of Burk's Falls,  reports the case referred to. .. She says:.  "I take great pleasure in recommending  Zam Buk as a cure foi* skin disease.  My three children were all broken out  with sores on- face, hands and feet  Their condition was pitiable, and  although I tried various ointments and  salves, they did not seem to be able to  get at the root.of.the1 evil, and the  sores continued to spread. "One day I  saw a report in a lo<"al newspaper tell  ing how beneficial Zam-Buk was for  skin diseases, ulcers, etc I -got a  supply of the balm and applied it to  the children's sores. Almost immediately they got relief, and , the sores  began to heal. Although the skin  disease had defied all tlie salves I had  previously cried, in oue week Zam-Buk  overcame the trouble, and today (,the  children have not a { imple or spot or  mark of disease on their skin. For this  'grand result I have Zam-Buk to thank.  It is a splendid healer." .  Zam-Buk is thus shown to be altogether different and superior to ordinary "remediesT-^It���is ^a^healing^balm  compounded from saps and essences of  the finest known medicinal herbs. It  has high ->ntiseptic power, killing  disease germs, which settle on sores  and emotions, etc., and which set up  festering,blood poison and suppuration.  It cures eczema, skin rashes, cuts,  burns, hruises, abscesses, ulcers, acne,  blackheads, ringworm, blood poison,  ject. It heals cracked and chapped  hands, cold sores, etc. As an embrocation it is also widely used, and gives  speedy relief in ��ases of muscular  rheumatism, sciatica, etc. Rubbsd on  the chest in cases of colds, it relieves  the tightness and aching.

This fact aione should  make people more careful as there is  no danger whatever from a cold when  it is properly treated in the beginning.  For many years Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy has been recognized as the  . most prompt and effectual medicine in  use for this disease. It acts on nature's  plan, loosens the cough, relieves the  lungs, opens the secretions and aids  nature in restoring the system to a  bealthy condition.

It has  not been difficult tu make these rr>  mantic stories   interesting,   because it  ** 6  has always been possible to inject the  necessary clement of u vast fortune  and feature beyond compulation. One  i.f the most venerable i-f these mythical tales is that of the lost mine The  Indians the Spaniards or other romantic individuals onct* owned them, and  they are still sought for by those who  have nothing- more engagingf.  If the lost mine did no more harm  than to- delude a. few innocents, we  would have no comment lo make; but  when the tradition is made the basis of  a Iraudnlent flotation, i1 has been  worked to excess. Late dispatches  from New Mexico credit the territory  with a newly rediscovered "'lost mine''  in the vicinity of Silver City. It was  formerly worked by the Spaniards but  it will now be worked after the most  approved methods of the modern promoter. And thus is an old limestone  cave made to do duty as an antig-nr  from which faoulons wealth was once  extracted. We have personal acquaint  ance with one who has only lately gone  through its "miles of underground  workings'- and listened to the tales regarding its antiquity which did not at  all square with the evidences of modern timbering in a crude shaft. The  "stopes" failed to reveal any indication  of veins in the roof or floor, and the  faces of the "drifts" were devoid of  mineral. The workings were -more  like gopher holes and the entire "mine"  bore all the evidences of being a cave  worn in the limestone formatiod by  the incessant action of percolating  waters.  It is currently reported that this old  cave is to be exploited as an old mine,  and that stock is to be sold in a company organized to work it. Unfortunately the promoters have the co-operation of a professional servant in this  scheme, which we trus'. will be shortlived. The case is a good example of  a serious defect in promotions, on  which we commented in a recent issue.  ���Mining Reporter.  Try This for Your Cough.  To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following  simple formula, the ingredients of  which can be obtained of any p.ood  prescription druggist at small_, cost, ib  all that will be required: Virgin Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half  pint. Shake well and take in teaspoon  ful doses every f:ur hours. The desiied  results can not be obtained unless the  ingredients are pbre. It is therefore  better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil ot Pine (Pure) should  be purchased in the original half ounce  ���rial*, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is securely sealed in  a round wooden cas<*. which protects  the Oil irom exposure to light. Around  the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the name���"Virgin e Oil of  Pine (Pure)"���-plainly printed thereon.  There are many imitations and cheap  productions of Pine, but these nly  create nausea, and never effet the  desired results, 11-24  A Jamaican Lady Speaks Highly of  Chamberlain's Cousrh Remedy-  Mrs. Michael Hart, wife of the super-  intendent of Cart Service at Kingston,  Jamaica, West Indies Islands, says  that she has for .sonic years used  Chamberlain'������ Cough Remedy for  coughs, croup and whooping cough and  has found it very beneficial.She has  implicit confidence in it and would not  be without a bottle of it in her home.

Johnson of  Salt Lake City, the consulting r ngineer  of the company, on his first visit of  inspection and examination of that  mine, now nearly two years a^ro, are  believed lo be more than realized. In  fact, it seems more and more certain  that the company has an immense proposition in the Rawhide���one that will  yield many hundreds of thousands of  tous of ore that will be the equal of any  ore taken from the mines of this camp.  In the No. 3 utnnel of the Rawhide  drifting on the ore body is now going  on, and has proved the existence of the  ore body to a depth of about 400 feet  below the outcrops. In No. 4 tunnel  about 800 feet of development work has  been done, all of which is in ore, and  the size of the bodies on this level have  not yet been denned. Stopes have been  started on this single level, which will  yield hundreds of thousands of tons,  and will, in all probability, break  through the surface, when the ore can  be mined by the glory hole system.  In the No. 3 pit, which ii the latest  outcrop developed by the company, a  face of excellent chalcopyrite and  magnetite ore is exposed for a length  of ISO feet and a depth of some 40 feet.  A tunnel is being driven to cut th*'s ore  body at depth, and it is confidently believed that this ore body will prove to  be as large as the others encountered  on the property, and of a grade generally above the average in Phoenix  camp.

The curlers of Phoenix "and  Greenwood indulged in friendly  games on New Year's day, two  rinks ascending the hill to do  battle with Phoenicians, and two  descending to try conclusions  with the Greenwoodites. Four  games were played at each place.  Owing probably to the altitude  and the nature of the ice, the ascending party were defeated by 11  points. Dame Fortune, however,  smiled more benignly on their  comrades who remained at home,  these defeating the doughty opponents by 13 x'oints, McCutch-  eon's star playing being a notable  feature of the evening.

LOOKS    LIKE    A    BOOM  The Year 1907 Ought to Be a Banner  One for Greenwood and Surrounding District.  that they had been  overlooking- something-.  For a few years previous *noney had  been flowing into the district  through  The giant corporations of the district  had been working on an experiment.  To prove the extent and value of our  low grade ores had called for an immense amount of money, not our  money, but that of others, non-resident. That money had come, not like  aday's wage, but in large sums, and  that money had been spent among us.  Loan companies, knowing that peo  pie must have homes, lent "their funds  in liberal amounts to enable men to  make habitations for themselves.. That  money was spent among our people.  But the day came when mining capital  said, "let us wait awhile and see what  will come of what we have got. We  will develop what we now own, but.buy  ho more for a time."  In that day the wildcat died, and men  who had staked and sold, or who had  floated and fleeced, found that the old  times, when any 50 acres of mountain  side could be construed to mean a mine,  were gone foreve"*. Then eame the  day of liquidation, and men. went to  work.  Some, brighter than their fellows,  saw their opportunity. Unable to  command the large amount of money  necessary to develop a low grade mine,  they bethought themselves of other  local assets. They recalled that all  about the to'wn were small veins, out of  which the prospector* of an early day  had got large assays in gold and silver,  and arguing that if they might be able  to finance one of the big *.hings they  might one of the small, to set to work  in little groups and syndicate* to work  the high grades. For some time only  one was tested. But it wis a success,  and   its  success   encouraged   others.  Today over a dozen of these are being  worked and in no instance has complete failure ensued. Most of them are  flattering successes.  But the past few weeks have been  bigger with issue than any one previous  time.  In that time at least three of the  properties have been proven to be  mines. But while this was going on  men were hunting other ground, proving o:her veins, and the year 1906 saw  in its closing month the demonstration  of merit in at least two claims that  people had turned down as unworthy  the expenditure of more than a few  hundred dollars thereon.  And so, while the big low grades  have been hammering out their dividends, or the hundreds of thousands  About four years ago men in and out of earnings for betterments and  about Greenwood   awoke   to   the  fact J purchase of   still  more property,  the  high grades have been installing ma  chiuery, hitching an elecric power,  paying.tor purchase and improvement  all out of earnings and demonstrating  the double-barreled opportunity of the  arsfrKtT^ThV'yearlwy-will'be^-record1  year from all appearancs. The million  and a quarter output of 1906 will reach  the two million ton point, and the  mining world will see that, unattended  by fuss and flurry, or any. of the accompaniments of a boom, Greenwood  has done things, thanks to the courageous spirit of the pioneers among its'  mining men.  . The man landed by Pullman car in  Greenwood is within an hour's walk of  two smelters, several large low grade,  and a dozen high grade working properties, he finds here a good climate,  good hotels, comfortable homes, good  schools, good churches, flourishing  fraternal societies.  No deat th of fuel, no scarcity of  good water, no glaciers, no snow slides,  no burning sands.  Comfortable conditions of living,  good wages, good labor conditions arc  marked characteristice of the place.  The facts about Greenwood are  slowly becoming known, and we mistake the signs if 1907 does not see us  jolted out of the old rut.  Years ago, while as yet there was  nothing doing on the east hill, a mining man from Colorado told the writer  that that range would yet eclipse  Cripple Creek. It sounded foolish  then, but in the light of what the  Strathmore, Crescent, Skylark, Bay,  Mavis and Tip Top are doing it now  has signs of coming true.  g-averntruiiit met defeat as a result,  and was afterwards dismissed from  office?  In 1903 an Act was passed cancelling  the Crown Grants of coal and oil lands  which had been issued as a result of  this conspiracy.  Mr. McBride, ONK OF IHB. GUii/TY  MINISTBRS (see his own sworn evidence), who had previously left the  ���Dunsmuir government, and gone into  opposition, jvas called upon to form a  government.  Iu the general elections which followed, Mr, McBride received the support of the C P. R. Mr. McBride now  secures the passage of a bill 'o convey  to the C. P. R. 800,000 acres of land,  which they were not entitled to under  their contract (if they were entitled  there would be no necessity for the  bill). His followers, including the  Socialist members, votes down an  amendment to.secure to the ; Province  the penalty provided for by the original Subsidy Act.. His followers, including the two Socialists, votes down  an amendment to secure control of  rates as provided for in the original'  Act. His followers, including, of  course, the Socialists, votes down  amendment to make the Act a final  settlement.  McBride, the minister of mines,  grossly sacrificed the interests or the  Province in 1901.  He admitted it under oath "n 1903.  In 1906 he (falsely) states to the legislature   that by legacy   executed  AGREEMENT THE KAH.WAY COMPANY  SURRENDERED ITS RIGHT TO BUILD SECTIONS FIVE and Six. This is the agreement the government refused to execute. He and his nondescript followers  in 1906 vote the railway company 800,  000 acres of land ihey were not entitled to. He refuses to exact the 550,000  which the company had forfeited to the  Province of British Columbia. . He refuses settlers their rights guaranteed  by the law aud refers them to the railway company.  The.Province has paid deficits on the  Snuswap & Okanagan railway caused  by the failure of the C. & W. to carry  out its contract the sum of Sl.58,000  during the last six years,.and this loss  is a continuing one.  The Province has not got the anticipated benefits in any respect owing to  the failure of the railway company to  carry out its agreement.  The McBride government has had  the support of the C. P. R. in the past.  They will have it in the election now  ou. If the McBride government is  sustained, the C. P. R. will have  (amongst other things), another claim  for another 900,000 acres' of land in re-  FOR  rut at ra wninM  : - 1APIES, MiSSES 'AND, CHILDREN: ?
