Sixth Tear-No. 22
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, January 18, 1907
Semi-Weekly—$1.00 Fer Year in Advance
Summary   of   Facts  Established by Kaien Island
What the Band of Adventurers Got Out of the Big
Land Deal
That the provincial reserve dated
12th October. 1891, did not extend
to Kaien Island, and was not intend-
1 to do.
that the applications under the
land laws of the province, under the
South African War Grant Act and
under the Mineral Aot were not considered by the government upon their
merits but that the same were rejected under the subterfuge of applying
the reserve of 1891 to said lands contrary to the purport and intention of
the order in council creating the
same.  *
That the government did not deal
directly with the Orand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company, but on the contrary with a band of adventurers
(male and female) who applied for the
said lands for' purely speculative purposes, to the knowledge of the government. That the government hod no
communication either verbal or written, with any representative of the
Grand Trunk Pacific prior to the pawling of the wriler in council of May,
1904, and that the telegram of the
29th of April was a mere move in the
game to enable the speculators to contend that they could carry out their
original intention of procuring the establishment of the Grand Trunk Pacific terminus on these lands, and to
give the government a pretence, a
very specious one at that, that they
had heard in an indirect way, if not in
. a direct way, Irom the Grand Trunk
.. Pacific company.
That by the order in council of
May, 191)4, the government placed in
ft hands of Messrs. Anderson and
arsen one of the most valuable public assets in the province for barter
,wifh the Grand Trunk Pacific. And
that Anderson, shortly after the passing nf the order in council, proceeded
to Montreal where he succeded in (jetting aa agreement from the Grand
Trunk Pacific to pay himself and Lar-
sen $40,000 for the concession which
they had obtained from the government by said order in council.
That no satisfactory evidence was
offered show ing the ultimate fate of
this $40,0(10 agreement.
That the government had no power
to make this grant, either to Messrs.
Anderson and Larsen or to the Grand
Trunk Pacific without the assent uf
the legislature, and that the ministers
• wrongly advised his honor the lieutenant-governor mul obtained the order
- in council contrary hoth to the spirit
vnd to the letter of the law.
fhttt the government took nu step*
whatever to ascertain whether or not
the grunt in question Was in the pub*
lie interest. That ministers had no
knowledge upon which tu proceed in
deciding that question', and beyond
milking one or two modifications in
Mr. Bodwell's original proposal were
utterly reckless with the rights of the
That  the  provision   to divide the
fareshore into blocks of not less than
1,000 feet was a most unwise one and
enables the Grand Trunk Pacific to
divide the foreshore into large blocks
and after the government has selected
its block or blocks to place its terminals and wharves in such a position
as to render almost valueless that portion of the foreshore belonging to the
That by reason of the secrecy main
tained by the government and Messrs
Larsen and Amderson, the said Larsen and Anderson and their immediate associates were enabled to obtain
other lands, including North and
South Porpoise islands, contiguous to
Kaien Island and the proposed railway line,-!*) the extent of over 3,000
That James Anderson received from
his partner Lacsen, in settlement uf
their interests in Kaien Island and
other adventures in the immediate
neighborhood, the sum of $10,000, besides salary and expenses. He also
received one-sixteenth interest in
North and South Porpoise Island and
other lands contiguous to Kaien Island, located by him under South
African war script. And also about
five square miles of coal lands some
distance down the coast.
In connection with the foregoing
statements of facts it is interesting to
recall the. petition of George T. Kane,
re-pre-emption records and war script
land locations on Kaien Island. Mr.
Kane's petition reads as follows:
Whereas, un the 21st of March,
1904, I foi myself, and" a sagent for
many other citizens did proceed and
stake in accordance with statutory regulations, a pre-emption and several
South African war land grant applications—the pre-emption was for myself, the script applications were fur
citizens and veterans—on Kaien Island, Coast district:
And whereas, on the 29th (lay of
March, 1904, I did ayply in accordance With government regulations for
a pre-emption record for 160 acres of
land on Kaien Island, and did also
npply for several South African war
grant application:
And whereas, on June 6th 1904,
the deputy commissioner did return
a 1 script anil refuse same, us also did
he at the same time refuse my pre
emptiou record, giving as his only
reason therefore, that the land in
question was reserved from sale or
preemption on the 12th day of Oifto-
ber, 1891.
And whereas, I now hold said script
and money that that the said deputy
commissioner refusal subject to his
And whereas, reserve uf October
12th, 1891, applied to the Tsimpsean
peninsula only and therefore the said
Kaien Island was open for pre-emption and purchase:
And whereas, the chief commission
er has informed your petitioner that
only reason why 1 was refused my up
plication was the 1891 reset ve aforesaid:
And whereas the chief commissioner did also state to your petitioner
that if any body got the land I could
get it:
And whereas, tliere is nu valid rea
sun why said lund should not lie
granted to the aforementioned applicants:
Now, therefore, 1 would respectfully ask that your honorable body will
look int.) this matter wherein a great
i-ijustice las been done, and that you
will remedy said injustice by granting
my pre-emption record uf 100 acres uf
land on Kaien Island, und also grunt

script applications fnr ItiO acres of

terms," He took great pride the
part he had played in this episode.
The premier and his party left today for Phoenix, where they speak
this evening. In order not to be
without an audience, they took a
crowd of the faithful in this city
along with them.
Premier McBride and his right
hand bower, Thirty-five Dollars-per-
Month-for-Workingmen Bowser, accompanied by tbeir special press
correspondent, Mr. Burd, arrived in
the city yesterday afternoon, and
last night held forth nt the opera
house, attempting to defend the government's record before a large audience composed of all political
W. H. M May occupied the chair.
Ernest Miller, Conservative candidate for this riding, was the first
speaker. In a brief but eloquent
speech he gave his reasons for supporting the government. He also
spoke quite flatteringly of his opponents in the present campaign. The
only thing he objected to was the
word "labor" after Mr. Gregory's
Mr. Bowser started his evening's
discourse by telling a funny story.
He then threw a few complimentary
remarks to Mr. Miller's side of the
house, after which he reviewed the
legislation enacted by the McBride
government. This did not take him
long. Most of his time was consumed in defending the hew School
Act. He was candid in stating that
he did not pose as a friend of the
workingmen. He also indulged in
a tirade of abuse against W. W. B.
Mclnnes. At the conclusion of bis
speech something like u faint attempt
at applause ran through   the   house.
Premier McBride started bis remarks by endorsing the candidature
of Mr. Miller. He then launched
out boldly l>y saying he did mil
think he hud uu enemy in Grand
Fnrks. [A vui'*e: ■'Ymi have lots of
them."] He then made another attempt, by predicting a Conservative
victory iu this riding. [Another
voice: "Ymir judgment is bad
Tm- premier then went over the same
ground that had been covered by
Mr. bowser. The law preventing the
exportation uf sawlogs und the Kaien

subjects broached by hiin. He contended, in Spile of tbe evidence to
the contrary, ilmt the government

Grand Trunk Pacific coinpany. He
then entered a plea of justification lor
the increased luxation, concluding
by asking how the revenue could be
raised if not by taxation. [ V
voice: "Get $7(1,000 more from the
Southeast Koiiteniiy coul locators."]
Mr. McBride pretended not to hear
this, nnd asked Ihe gentleman to
stand up and repent his remarks.
The request wus complied with, the
man telling the premier to get his
revenue from Ihe ('rand Forks coal
men. Mr. .McBride turned this incident aside by saying thut he knew
nothing about the Grand Forks coul

Benj. F. Wilson,' the California
Socialist, spoke in the opera bouse
Tuesday to a large crowd, the audience being composed of all political
creeds. The address was more in
the nature of a lecture than a political speech, none of the issues involved in the present campaign being touched upon. It was a characteristic Socialistic cry—a cry
against capitalism, with no adequate
substitute advanced for the present
industrial system.
Railway Taxation
The failure of the McBride government to collect the taxes legally due
upon the following lands of the B. C,
Southern railway company and the
lands of F. A.' Heinze was the subject of a resolution of want of confidence in the government last session:
A—4588 112,640

But very little interest was taken
in the municipal elections yesterday.
The lightest vote iu years was cast.
In the composition of the board of
aldermen chosen there were quite a
number of surprises, especially in
the West ward. The result of tbe
voting follows:

Williams, Tatlow, McBride, Cotton,
Clifford, Bowser, Fraser, Ross, A.
McDonald, Green, Fulton, Garden,
Taylor, wright, Young, Shatford,
Grant, Manson.
It will bo noted that the three Socialist members of the legislature voted approval of the government's course
in not collecting these taxes and it
will be further noted that the Socialists did not vote simply to prevent
the government being defeated, for
hail they voted witli the opposition on
this occasion the government would
sfill have been able to defeat the reso-
stitinn by a majority of two.
The votes uf the Socialist members
of the legislature on this occasion
clearly demonstrate that the principals they advocate ou the public plal-
f nni have no weight with them when
casting their votes in the legislature.
It is this double dealing that has dis
credited Hawthornthwaite with sin-
otre Socialists in Xaniumo and Van
cover and which accentuates the feeling that he uud his two colleagues in
the House were mine concerned in
bolstering up the McBride government than in advancing the principles
they were elected Ui defend.
Electors should note carefully who
voted for anil against this resolution.

FRIDA**., JANUARY 18, 1907
From every section of the province
the most cheering information of the
prospects of Liberal success on the
2nd of February continue to arrive. In Vancouver and Victoria a
clean sweep is confidently predicted
by the'shrewdest politicians of the
coast, and in Rossland it is stated
that the opponents of leader J A.
Macdonald won't even get a look in.
From other interior points equally
roseate reports nre being received.
Locally,- the Conservatives hnve taken
to whistling to sustain their flagging
courage, and to base their claims of
victory on braggadocio. The defection from their ranks to the Liberal
party goes merrily on. As nn evidence of the dire straits they nre in,
it is only necessary to point out thnt
their headquarters is being moved
nightly from barroom to barroom.
Meanwhile the independent nnd intelligent voter is spending his even-
IngB at home, carefully investigating thc records of the candidates and
analyzing their platforms, nud on
election day ho can he depended on
to cast his ballot for honest, straightforward men, ns against a corrupt
political machine composed principally of corporation puppets.
What iB the use of importing such
ranting foreign demagogues as Mr.
Wilson to champion Socialism, when
every school child of the province is
familiar witb the record of that party
in the last legislature. There is not
a voter in the province but knows
that the Socialists could have prevented the giving awny of 800,000
acres of public lands to a big riilroad
corporation, and compelled the gov

taxes or forfeit tbeir claims; but it

only hns it escaped taxation, hut

badly needed improvements were
held back because the province was
too poor and couldn't spare the

which it was not entitled to a single

can't pay their taxes, have tlu-ir

A cry against, "capitalism" without advancing, an adequate substitute is anarchism pure and simple.

Benj. F. Wilson, the blatant spellbinder from California, came here
to teach free-born British subjects
how to vote. He was highly recommended by Eugene V. Debs, who
belongs to the most dangerous type
of anarchists. Those who would
like to have the red flag of anarchy
substituted for the Union J ck would
probably rather take their instructions from this class of demagogues
than honorable residents of the
During the past year thousands of
acres of land have been applied for.
The cash and the survey notes have
been sent in to the lands and Works
department, but not five per cent of
the applications have been gazetted.
The balance have been held up. It
would be interesting to know the
real situation in tbe lands and works
department right now. And that's
a business outside of politics. From
the scant information that has leaked
out to the outside world, the affairs
of thut department must be in such
a deplorable tangle that only a change
of government can straighten them
out. The only way to accomplish
this, is to vote tbe Liberal ticket.
The survey of crown lands available foi settlement and, where practicable, the parcelling of them into
small holdings as part of a comprehensive immigration policy, is one of
the features of tiie Liberal policy
that Mr. J. A. Macdonald very
properly lays great stress upon. The
settlement of British Columbia has
been seriously retarded by the fnil-
ure of the government to deal in a
businesslike wuy with the public
lands, and this obstacle tn settlement
has necessarily added to the burdens
of the taxpayers. What is needed
is an aggressive im in ignition policy,
with a view to settling upon our va-
cunts lands a good class of settlers,
who will in due course become citizens of the country.
We have been promised two or
three more importations of foteign
agitators to champion the cause of
the Socialist candidate in this riding.
They all come highly recommended
by Eugene V. Debs, the bloodthirsty
revolutionist who, a year ago, offered
to head an army to anhilate the
present form of government.
The most commonplace observations in Mr. Wilson's speech were
freely punctuated with: '-Listen,"
"now, get this," "now, follow me,"

the interests of several of the local
people and the majority of the stock
is held today by a few Chicago investors. Were the shipments' of the
Providence limited to the present
basis, the net annual profit would
easily be $100,000 annually. That,
amount is 5 per cent on a capitalization of $2,000,000, and the Chiraffo
investor likes to capitalize the earning
power of his money at a proper proportion. An extraordinary meeting
of the shareholders' of the the company was held in Greenwood last evening; a resoluton was passed authorizing the increase of a capital stock to
this amount, and the Providence mine
takes its place among the big ones.
Two million dollars is a large sum
of money, but on the other hand,
nothing is capitalized in Cobalt for
less than two million, and the stock is
lften plnr-ed on the market at thrfe
times its par value. There nre rich
mines in Cobalt, but there are few
more promising than the Providence.
In comparison to some Cobalt flotations of today, the new capitalization
of the Providence mine is very modest
ndeed. In addition, it has behind it
the fact that after four years of development, it is a permanent shipping
mine and a regular dividend payer,
which, after all, are the best tests of
the value of a mine.

The Providence Mine
M. F. Madden, of Chicago, president of the Providence Mining coin
pany of Greenwood, was a visitor in
the city last Tuesday. It is now
over four years, says -the the Greenwood Times, since the Providence
Mining company was organized with
a modest capital of $-.'00,000. Uut
the mine had a history previous to
that date. Tlte story of how William
Fowler took charge of the Providence
in the days when the hurricane deck
of a cay use was the only means uf
transportation, packed oie to Marcus,
(15 miles distant, and thencs by rail
to Tacoma, how even Providence niV
could not stand such a transportation
handicap, how he abandoned the mine
and afterwards returned after the
railway was built, and finally cleared
up $50,000 by a sale In local people,
has often been told. The local purchasers wero afterwards joined by N,
A. Madden, representing himself and
other Chicago capitalists, who, like
most Chicagoans, knew a good thing
when they saw it. Since the organization of the company the Providence
has heen a regular dividend payer; in
fact, was practically the first dividend
payer in the camp. Over $100,000
has been taken from the mine, and
last year the value of the ore extracted was $131,000, notwithstanding the
fact that for eight mouths of the year
no ore was shipped further than that
neoessury to pav fur development
work. The shaft was sunk iu ore
from the 400 to the B00 font level;
drifts and crosscuts were run and a
fully equipped pliint was installed.
I The large amount of develnpniet work
has demonstrated that the veins retain their values and that they run to
great depths.
All this work has been done from
the proceeds of the sale of ore ex tract*
ed from the mine, ami not from the
sale of stock. Tliere is no stock for
sale by the company.    The Chicago

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 good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puee), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing Each vial is
securely sealed in around wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Arouild the wooden case is
au engaged wrapper with the name—
".Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. Tiiereure many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
hut these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

An unusual *reck occurred Monday evening to the Great Northern
train on its way to Phoenix. Strange
as it may seem, the wreck occurred
on the C. P. 11. rails. Being late the
train was running at high speed near
Oro Denoro, where a spur connects
the two lines, and at that point are
but a short distance apart The
switch being open the Great Northern
ran in, passing the Emma mine and
on up the C. P. It, grade to B. C.
junction, and on to the main C.P.R.
Phoenix-Eholt line, At this point
the entire train of ten cars, including
several heavy 50 ton ore dumps, wns
derailed, fortunately no one being injured. _ The wreck is now being cleared away by a C. P. It. crew from
Eholt. Nn very serious damage waH
done. The cause of this peculiar accident is being investigated by Superintendent R. C. Morgan of the Great
Northern lines north of Spokane.
Pour furnaces of the Granbv smelter were blown in on Thursday, after
being idle for a few days. Sunday
the eompany received thirty cars of*
coke from th« Crow's Nest and nn
Monday ten cars mi ire, over the C. P.
R. The company's mines ut Phoenix
also started up in full force on Thursday, having had but forty or fifty
men at work for several days; owing
to* the temporary shut down at the
smelter which in turn was occasioned
by the railway companies being short
of coal for their own power purposes.
No more Hindus are likely to come
to Canada, steps having already been
taken by the Dominion government
to convince the Indian government
authorities that this country is not
suited to this class of immigration.
