but the services of newspapers friend- exploiting theso inexhaustible mines
ly to the Canadian corporation were
enlisted. During the time the measure was before the railway committee the old flag was vigorously
waved and column after column of
patriotic twaddle published. The
bogie man of a foreign rBilway corporation draining the wealth of our
country for the benefit of our neighbors to the south, was trotted out to
frighten thc timid and arouse well
intentioned citizens of this country
who are always ready to show their
loyalty to Canadian institutions
when it entails no sacrifice to themselves or the particular portion of
the Dominion  in which their inter-
of low grade ore can fully appreciate.
Similar reductions were made and
are being made in connection with
the haulage of the large quantities
of coal and coke used at the Boundary mines and smelters. The salvation of the Boundary district depends upon low transportation rates
and mining companies are extending their operations strong in the as-
surance that so long as the Great
Northern railway is a competitor of
the Canadian Pacific railway, in the
Boundary they will always have
reasonable freight rates.

dary creek ore is treated in American not unreasonably to demand for the
smelters; the ore of Republic, Wash- district most directly interested the
ington, is being treated at thc smel-, samo     freedom    accorded   other
portions of the Dominion in the development of a railway policy. In
the carrying and assembling of our
minerals, whether or not they conform 1.0 political imaginary lines;
grades arc more important than distance, and we must adopt our policy
to the physical features of the country. We must not try to ship low
grade ore on high grade railways.
If no obstructions are placed in
the way of railway builders they
will follow the natural conformation
of the countiy. The construction of
a railway from Robson to Midway
hy the Canadian Pacific railway
showB great pluck and enterprise in
railway building, but it is not the
way to carry ore. From Robson to
Bull Dog tunnel, a distance of 31
miles, and down to Cascade, 24
miles, there is a 2 per cent grade,
and from Grand Forks to Eholt
there is a similar grade. ' On a grade
of { per cent an ordinary locomotive
can easily haul 40 cars of ore. On a
gride of 1 per cent this is reduced to
20 cars, and on a grade of 2 per cent
to 10 cars. One Canadian Pacific
engine can haul from'Fernie to the
Boundary smelters about ten cars of
coke; a Great Northern engine of the
same power hauls from Fernie to the
Boundary smelters 20 cars. This difference in grades is responsible for
the reduced price paid by the Granby company today.
The policy of thc Canadian Pacific
railway and its satellites asks us to
pursue' in British Columbia the
Chinese policy of thi "closed door."
Such a policy will leave many of our
mining properties undeveloped.
The contour of the country in
southern British Columbia shows
thc need of southern connections.
The valleys run north and south
and profitable transportation lines
must conform to them. If our
southern boundary were the 45th
parallel of latitude instead of the
49th, as it should be, we could have
had our own line east and west running its branches up these valleys
and assembling ores where they
would be most profitably smelted.
But it is no use to cry over what we
have lost. We must make the best
of what we have. We protest against
southern British Columbia being the
victim ofthe folly of forcing railway
lines to conform to political boundaries. If we nre afraid to allow
railway competition in southern
British Columbia we. will drive off
capital and .our undeveloped mines
will remain dormant. We must go
around mountain ranges, not across
them, and this can be done only by
allowing the V., V. & E. to build.
Mr. Hill nsk< for neither subsidy
nor favor of any kind; all be asks is
to be left free to give southern British Columbia the best lines on the
lowest grades and thus insure low
transportation charges.
Surely those who have faith in the
province of British Columbia should
not be found advocating a policy of
railway monopoly, of excessive railway charges, of increased cjst of
production and of discouragement to
those who are developing the natural
resources of the province.
To my mind it is insulting to the
intelligence and indepence of the
people of British Columbia, that it
is the only portion of the Dominion
where the advocates of a policy of
^Canadian Pacific railway monopoly
would dare oppose the construction
of a railway from tbe American side.
Today, in conjunction  with  D. C.
Corbin, the Canadian Pacific are
building a feeder from their Crow's
Nest road to Spokane, Wash. The
same patriotic, truly Candian railway company has its feeder to
Seattle, to St. Paul, Minn., to Du-
luth, through Maine, in fact at every
point along the boundary line where
business offers. It is all right for
the Canadian Pacific railway com
pany to make American connection,
but all wrong for the Great Northern to make Canadian connections.
The Dominion government heavily
subsidized Mackenzie & Mann's railway in the Rainy River district. This
railway runs in and out along the in-
thernational boundary to avoid difficulties of construction. Parliament
and the country endorsed tbis project.
The Michigan Central runs its lines
through ;Ontario and there is even a
tunnel between Sarnia and Port
Huron to facilitate this awful drainage of Canadian wealth.
If this new principle of political
economy be sound, it should apply
with equal force to water transportation and the Dominion government
should be censured for subsidizing
a line of steamers to drain Canadian
wealth into the capacious maw of
the greedy Republic of Mexico. The
subsidy to the Pacific Coast Steam
ship company, who have a line of
steamships engaSed in this unpatriotic business of building up San
Francisco at the expense of Canada,
should be cancelled, and the trans-
Pacific steamers of the Canadian Pacific railway, which are building up
China and Japan at the expense of
Canada, should be withdrawn. Even
James Dunsmuir should not be permitted to Bend the product of his
mines to San Francisco. But why
multiply these absurdities. The
fight of today is the fight of 1898
over again. It is a fight of that railroad competition which is not denied
other portions of the Dominion, and
it is a fight in which it is not unreasonable to expect all good British Columbians and all British Columbia papers to unite.
Duncan Ross.

NEWS OFTHE CITY
Interesting Talks to Ranchers by
Practical Farmers In Alberta
Hall Tuesday Night.
Three Well Known Grand Forksites
Will Seek Fortunes In Cattle
DEATH OF NHS. GRIFFITHS
Mrs. John Griffiths, aged 02 years,
died at the Cottage hospital at 7
o'clock this morning, after an illness
of a little over two weeks. Last
Sunday a week ago an operation
for appendicitis wns performed upon
Mrs. Grilfiiths. Thc operation is
said to have been a success, and under ordinary circumstances she
would undoubtedly have recovered;
but the ndvancodjge of the patient,
added to a very low vitality, caused
her to sink gradually until the end
cnino and released her from her suffering.
Deceased leaves a husband and
grown-up son to mourn her loss
The Griffiths are old-timers of this
city, nnd much sympathy is manifested for the surviving members of
the bereaved family.
Thc funeral will take place at 2
o'clock tomorrow afternoon from
the family residence in the North
addition.
The remains of Arthur LaVallie,
who died at Christina lake last Sunday, were shipped to Spokane on
Wednesday morning, and the funeral was held in tli.it city under the
auspices of Spokane Barbers' union.
The public meeting held in Alberta hall last Tuesday evening in
connection with the Farmers' Institutes was, unfortunately, but
lightly attended, owning partly to
lack of publicity and partly to the
inclemency of the weathei. Even
such a well-known hayseed as The
Sun's agricultural editor wavered
in his resolution to be present when
he caught sight of the huge descending raindrops. Howover, the meeting proved quite successful, and
those who did attend wero amply repaid for their trouble. J. R. Anderson, deputy minister of agricultural, spoke on the subject of tilling
the soil properly, and demonstrated
that if it came to a scratch he could
hold a plow, as well as repair a
badly demoralized political fence.
James Murray, of the seed department, Ottawa, spoke on thc importance of securing good seeds. The
secret of good crops, he maintained,
depended on the quality of the seed
planted. Thomas G. Earl, of Lytton, members of the board of agriculture, deliverad an interesting lecture on fruit raising and the proper
way to prune fruit trees. Mr. Earl
is a prioneer of thc west, having resided in this province over forty
years.
W. C. Putnam, who has been employed in J. H. Hodson's grocery
store for a number of years, and W.
Farmer, an old-timer of this city,
and Mr. Nichols, C. P. R. lineman,
will leave next week for the northern portion of the province.
They will take up tracts of land,
and intend to engage in thc stock
raising business.
Dr. Arthur, of Nelson, has decided
to remove to this city and practice
his profession here. It is expected
that he will arrive in the city next
Monday or Tuesday. He will have
his office in the building formerly
occupied by Ur. Westwood, on First
street.
Frances Feeney, who lias been attending college in Spokane, is Spending bis vacation with bis parents in
tbis city.
All Oddfellows are requested to
meet at l.O.O.F. hall at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon for the purpose of
attending the funeral of the late
Mrs. John Griffiths.
The Ladies of the Maccabees gave
a social last night in Eagles' hall to
thc members of tbe local hive. A
program consisting of vocal and instrumental music, recitations, etc.,
was rendered, and refreshments were
served. Everybody had a real nice
time.

This Medicine Is Breathed,
That's why it is sure to cure catarrh. You see it goes direct to the
soui'ce of the disease—its healing vapor repairs the damage caused by catarrhal inllanunation. Catarrhozone
always cures because it goes into those
tiny cells and passages that ordinary
remedies can't reach; goes where the
disease actually is. Impossible for Catarrhozone to fail, as any doctor wiil
tell you. Don't be mislead into thinking there is anything so good as Catarrhozone—use it and you'll soon say
good-bye to catarrh. H. E. Woodland, druggist.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rooty Mountains in
view of the grainiest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of those trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look nfter tht*
comfort ■ of his guests.' No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided hy these excursions.

He always use.s Nerviline, which is
noted for curing stiffness, rheumatism,
swellings and strains. Nerviline is
just as good inside as outside. For
cramps, colic, and internal pain it's a
perfect majvel. In the good racing
stables Norviline is always used, because it makes better horses and smaller veterinary bills. Twenty-five cents
buys a large bottle of Nervilino; try it.

She is in society, in business, at
nome, everywhere you see her, but always worn and fatigued. She hasn't
heard of Ferrozone cr she would be
perfectly well. How quickly it
strengthens, what an appetite it gives,
what a glow it brings to pallid cheeks!
The nutriment contained in Ferrozone
puts strength into anybody. Laughing eyes, rosy lips, bright quick movements all tell of the vitality Ferrozone
produces. Thousands of attractive
happy women use Ferrozone—why not
you? A box of fifty chocolate coated
tablets costs fifty cents at any drug
store.   H. E. Woodland, druggists.
