Railroad Mileage Increasing
and Gross Earnings Now
at Top Mark
Great Expansion in Postoffice
Evidence of Continuous
That Canada is growing in commercial directions can be conclusively
shown in figures.. Two of the great
departments of the government—viz:
the postoffice and the railway department, reflect the condition of things
very accurately. The necessity of es-
tabliahing new postoffices, the fact
that correspondence is on the increase,
the additional evidence that the revenues of the postoffice are ever on the
increase, all lead to the same conclusion.
The demand for new railway lines,
the fact that traffic more than keeps
pace with the additional accommodation provided, and that year by year
more passengers travel and more
freight is handled, supply the justification for saying that Canada's commercial growth is astounding.
While there is proportionate increase in all departments, the two selected are more nearly in touch witb
the life of the people than any other,
and are therefore selected as examples
of the expaning character of Canadian
economic affairs.

Since 1903 there has been added
2356 miles to the operating mileage of
Canadian roads and the gross receipts
in the same period have grown from
896,064,527 to 8126,322,865, an increase of $29,258,338.
During 1906 the railroads carried
10,593,296 tons more of freight than
they did in 1903, and the capacity of
the roads today is far less than the
freight demands.
Nothing could indicate the ever increasing prosperity of the country
better than the carrying capacity of
the great transcontinental lines being
taxed beyond their powers. Even at
this very hour there is a demand for
better methods of moving the commerce of the country from the interior
to the seaboard, all of which goes to
prove that Canada has not yet reached
the summit of the great wave of pros
perity which arrived coincident with
the assumption of office by the Liberal
The returns for April show that
Canada's total trade for the month
has increased tl,123,771 over the
same month of Ust year. The figures
are 137,779,170. The imports over
the same month last year increased
by 14,628,226, showing the greater
purchasing power of the Dominion.
The duty collected during the month
of April was $4,330,018, an increasi*
for the month over the same period
last year of 8479,153.
Great progress is being made with
the construction of the great transcontinental line, the Grand Trunk Pacific, Roundhouse and shops are now
under way at Portage la Prairie.
About three hundred men are employed in excavating, grading and
hauling material for the work. An
emergency repair shop of large ilimen
sions, bui)t of brick and stone, will be
completed this summer,
Grading has been done westerly
from Portage la Prairie for a distance
of eighteen miles. Track has already
been laid through the city. Three
Grand Trunk Pacific engines are engaged in the autive business of hauling material for the work at the front.
The contractors expect to commence
work shortly on the section between
Portage and Winnipeg. It is confidently expected that before the snow
falls again grading will bo completed
between these two points.
It may not be gent-rally known
that there is in force a most elaborute
system of investigating the public ac
counts of the Dominion. This is done
through the medium of what is known
as the public accounts committee.
Upon this committee are both Lil.er
nls and Conservatives, and witnosses
desired by both parties may be su
moned at the expense of the crown to
give evidence.
Any public documents from any
of the departments required f ir the
purposes of the committee may be sent
for, and they are promptly produced.
Copies of the files of any public matter
will likewise be prepared upon application for the use of the committee,
and any member of the committee has
free access to them.
Although the matters inquired into
have passed the scrutiny of the auditor-general, this committee conducts a
searching investigation into the expenditure, and all possible light is

College Street Closing Bylaw
Reconsidered and Finally-
Hours for Lawn Sprinkling.
No Waste of Water Will
Be Allowed
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber Monday evening, Mayor
Hammar, Aid. Hardy, Horner, McCallum and Woodland being present.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that the city's luni
ber supply had not yet arrived, and
recommended that enough be purchased to complete the approach to
tbe Fourth street bridge. Approved.
He also recomended that the city
team should be kept at work nine
hours per day. On motion, tbe
hours were fixed from 7 to 12 a.m.
and from 1 to 5 p.m.
The finance committee was given
power to take the necessary steps
to compel the owners to remove the
barn used by W. H. Fisher from
The College street closing bylaw
waB reconsidered and finally passed.
On motion of Aid. Woodland and
McCallum, the clerk wns instructed
to have the bylaw regularly advertised and tiled in the land registrar's office al Kamloops.
The finance committee recommended having land surveyed for
tbe city water tank, as the present
tank is not located on city property.
Tbe committee was authorized to
proceed witb tbe work.
Mr. Michener was given the use
of the city lots at the pumping station for two years, providing the city
does not need tbem in the meantime, in lieu of clearing them.
The water and light committee
was authorized to submit a price of
87000 to the Granby company for
the city's plant ut the power house,
W. K. C. Manly and Geo. Chappie, representing tbe I.O.O.P, and
K. of P. lodges, were present, and
addressed tiie council. Mr. Manly
stated that ihe societies would like to
get a deed or ninety-nine years' lease
of College street, whicb the council
had just elused- for cemetery purposes. The city solicitor ex
plained that* the council did not
have the power lu give a deed to tlio
property, but lhat in lieu of a small
consideration some arrangement
equally us satisfactory might be
made. Tne iiiulter was referred to
the cemetery committee.
Aid. Hardy precipitated a long
discussion by saying thut if it was
found necessary to employ two policemen, one should be tire chief and
tbe other chief of police, thus dividing the honors as well as the emoluments of the positions, besides equalizing thc work to agreater extent than
under the present system. No de
cided opinions were expressed by
the council ou this subject one wuy
or tbe other, but it was pointed out
by the mayor that some difficulties
might arise in adopting tbe proposed
change, especially as the present
chief  of   police bad thoroughly fa
miliarized himself with a certain
class of work of his department. As
there were only three aldermen present when this subject was broached,
they did not feel like taking the responsibility of making a recommendation to the police commissioners,
and the matter was laid over until a
more representative meeting iB held.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Horner, the lawn sprinkling hours
were fixed from 6 a.m. till 8 p.m.
After some discussion, the council
decided to give free water for this
purpose; but all cases of undue
waste will be prosecuted.
Tbe council then adjourned.
Rev. Henry Steele, vicar ol Holy
Trinity church, left last Monday for
Vancouver to attend the annual
meeting of the International Cleri
cus, composed of delegates from all
the northwestern stntes, provinces
and territories, which is in session in
that city this week. Next week Mr.
Steele will go to Vernon to attend
the Synod of the church. There
will be no services in Holy Trinity
church on the 9th, but the Sunday
school will be held as usual. Mr.
Steele expects to return in time to
resume his services on the 16th
The farewell social tendered Rev.
and Mrs. E. Manuel last Monday
evening in the Methodist church was
very largely attended, the church
being crowded with members of the
congregation and friends from other
denumin'linns Speech's eulogistic
of Mr. Manuel's work during his
two years' residence here were made
by Messrs. G. M. Fripp, W. H. Covert, A. L. Clements, R. Follick and
Wm. Farmer. Mr. Manuel made a
fitting response. Mrs. Manuel was
presented with a handsome mantel
clock and Mr. Manuel witb a purse
of gold, the presents showing the
high esteem in which Mr.Maiiuel and
hi» family are held in this city. After
the presentation an excellent musical program was rendered, the feat
ure? being the songs by Misses
Wells and Carter and the two tenor
solos by Mr. C. Chapman. Refresh
meiits were served at the conclusion
of the program, after whicb every
body went home, having spent a
very pleasant evening, as well as
showed their approval of tbe splendid work done by Mr. Manuel while

Differences Between Granby
Company and Employees
Entire Battery of Eight Furnaces to Run as Soon
as Possible
There are now six furnaces in
operation at the Granby smelter,
and the two idle ones will be blown
in as soon as the coke and ore supply will warrant this step being
taken. Everything points to an
uninterrupted and successful run
during the balance of tbe season.
The local labor trouble has been
adjusted satisfactorily to all parties
concerned. Mr. A. B. W. Hodges,
general superintendent of the Granby Consolidated, returned last Sunday evening from Spokane, where
he had had a conference with Manager Jay P. Graves. Later a conference was held between Mr. Hodges
and representatives of Grand Forks
Labor union, and a satisfactory arrangement was arrived at in reference to the labor difficulties. The
differences only amounted to a few
dollars per day.and they were quickly adjusted.
A large proportion of the former
employees of the smelter are returning here. It is estimated that tbe
force will comprise between 320 and
350 men when the full battery of
eight furnaces is operated. Construction work, in connection with
tbe steel tank and mammoth steel
flue chamber, will necessitate more
men, but work of this kind will not
be started until the smelter is running at full capacity.
- It is reported that 360 names are
now on the payroll at the Granby
mines in Phoenix, and that there
are places for 500.
A G. Creelman, of the firm of
Wall & Creelman, contractors, returned to the city Wednesday noon
from Winnipeg, where the firm has
a number of important contracts.
The funeral of the late Miss Emma
Donan, who met her death as the
result of an accident last week, was
held frcn tbe family residence at
2 o'clock last Saturday afternoon.
Tbe attendance of friends of the
family was very large.
W. A. Harkin, the pioneer newspaper man of thiB city, wbo has
been connected with the Rossland
Miner stulf during thc past six
months, has removed to Vancouver,
where he will probably enter into a
partnership with Jack Holland in
the real estate and insurance business.
Colgate Hoyt, of New York, president of the B. C. Copper company,
arrived in the city Monday evening
in his private car. After inspecting
the Granby smelter, he left for
Greenwood the following day. This
was Mr. Hoyt's first visit to the
Boundary country. He is i well
known New York financier.
Mrs. A. M. Dunham bas been confined to her home by illness during
tbe present week.

FRIDAY, JUNE 7,  1907
An Ottawa dispatch states that the
Intercolonial railway, under the new
business methods inaugurated by
Emmerson and his deputy, Butler,
had earned 8218,000 for the nine
months to the beginning April. This
sum will be increassd to 8400,000 by
July 1. The showing is one which
affords great encouragement to the
management of the road, and seems to
point the way to times when, from
chronic accumulation of deficits, the
government's railway system may be
converted into an earner of profits.

Don't Use Greasy Liniments
A century ago they were popular.
Today people want something easy to
apply, certain in results, and above all
a clean liniment. When Nerviline is
applied aches and pains disappear as
the pores absorb its soothing healing
properties. Nerviline penetrates to the
core of the pain, eases instantly, and
leaves no oily bad smelling memory
behind. Good to take in, capital to
rub on, and five times more powerful
in destroying pain than any other
liniment. Don't fail to get a large 25c

thrown upon the subject, and the documents are prosent. If any scandal
exists this is the place to unearth it.
The auditor-general is present, and
generally the minister of finance, and
the deputy minister of finance makes
it a rule to attend all meetings.
Under the circumstances one may
imagine how carefully the public accounts are kept, and how free from
scandal and wrong-doing when such
publicity is possible before the public
accounts committee, where the witnesses are under oath.
Considering the immensity of the
country's business, nearly one hundred
millions coming in, and the same
amount going out in comparatively
small sums every year, it is a surprise
that more flagrant instances of theft
or graft are not discovered. Should a
witness refuse to answer a question, he
may, on vote of the committee, be reported to the house. It is a singular
fuct that the house on the rare occasions when a witness has refused to
answer, has supported the witness,
upon the ground that no public service
would be served by his doing so.
Compared to the many affairs considered by the committee, very few
have been considered of sufficient importance to carry them to the house.
Only one matter of any note, and that
affecting the North Atlantic Trading
company, has been brought before the
house. In this particular case, the contract complained of had been cancelled by the government, and in the
hope of making political oapital, the
affair was ventilate! and talked about
until people were tired of it.
In the meantime there we.e'millions
being spent in great public undertakings, which appeared to have escaped
the notice of the Conservatives, at all
events they must have decide! that
they were being properly and wisely
spent, for no inquiry with respect to
them was made. As a rule very
trivial matters of agency, when it was
alleged that the agent made too much
profit, were brought up for discussion.
It was found that matters affecting
the interior department and marine
ana fisheries were usually selected for
inquisition on the part of the Conservatives, but with the exception of the
case named, and some trivial ones in
marine and fisheries with respect to
the furnishing of offices, nothing of
note occurred. These affairs were alluded to in the house, but nothing
further, was done.
There were oases in which it was
found that the government had been
overcharged upon some goods, and
when the matter was brought to the
attention of the department a refund
was intisted upon, and was duly made.
Taking a long list of supplies, there
were always a few articles that might
have been bought cheaper, but as a
rule the bills were such as would be
paid by a private individual for the
same goods.
Considering the many transactions
enquired into in the public accounts
committee, and the fow transactions
that were carried to the house for dissuasion, tliere can lie only jne conclusion arrived at, antl that is that public affairs are being well administered,
when tho great sums involved in
annual public expenditures are considered.
Every session there is submitted to
parliament a report in several volumes
by the auditor-general, showing in de
tail every cent of expenditure in the
public service for the year. These
sums are audited and paid by this official after being audited and checked
by olficials of the respective departments. Having run the gauntlet of
such scrutiny, it is almost impossible
for theft, graft or any kind of wrong-
tloing to pass undetected.
Every dollar of money spent by tho
various departments of the government is voted by the house, after the
minister has oxplained   the   purposes
for which the money is required. This
money cannot be used for any purpose
other than that for which it was
voted. The observations of the minister when asking for the vote are taken
down in Hansard, and he becomes responsible to the house for the proper
expenditure of all sums voted for the
use of his department.
The law provides that all sums to be
expended for auy purpose exceeding
-KOOU shall be ofiered for public tender. This is a safeguard to the public
which permits of competition and pro-
duces good work at reasonable prices.
Before renewing votes the house invariably asks what was done with
money voted previously, and the min
ister's statements are compared with
the completed work and a thorough
check is provided. This is all additional to the auditor-general's func
tions,one of which is not to pay money
except in response to a vote of parliament, and only then in payment for
the work specified. The publio accounts committee is a tribunal dealing
with matters after thev have passed
through many competent hands.
In this manner is the money of the
people protected. From the time it is
voted by the representatives of the
people in parliament until payment is
made of the completed work, and even
after the transaction is concluded, the
strictest examination follows every
dollar. In very rare cases can money
go astray. With the present system
of audit it iu practically impossible for
any person to defraud the government.
In some cases too UiUjIi may be pad
for an article, and in other cases ti e
necessities of the work may require a
larger figure, but ou the whole the affairs of the country t,r* subjected to a
rigid system of audits which almost
precludes the possibility of any wrong
being perpetrated.
As the days go by and the incoming
citizens from tie mother land arrive
to make their homes in Canada, the
wisdom of the government's course
with regard to administering public
affairs will be more and more demonstrated. By the time that those who
are now commencing their life among
us will be in a position te ship their
produce, new transportation facilities
will be ready in the Northwest. In
every direction the railways are
branching out and entering new territory. Mew freight carriers are being
put on the great lakes, and the produce of the West will be more easily
and cheaply transferred to the sea.
So much was said in parliament by
the opposition about what would happen when the members were frea to
turn loose their oratory on the country, that one confesses to a feeling of
disappointment that everything is so
quiet. The Conservatives really have
little to talk about. They might continue their explanation of how it was
right for Mr. Foster to receive rake-
off and commissions from trust funds
he was handling, and at the same time
denounce an agent of the government
for receiving a commission on goods
sold to the government, when the said
commission was his total profit. Very
little will be beard of Mr. Fost'r in
tho future. He has been shown guilty
of the very things he charged against
otheis—antl when dealing with them,
he made them appear very venal indeed.
It does not appear from the appearance of tliin„s that the people want
any change. Nothing could be improved, no person advantaged (except
the needy politicians) and the people,
having reposed their confidence in a
responsible government that has done
things, will require more than academic discussion, or biting sarcasm of
the Foster type, before withdrawing
from an administration led by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, and turning public
affairs over to a government which
would include the man who speculated
with funds of the widows and orphans
represented by the Independent Order
of Forester.
With Sir Wilfrid at tho helm and
his   able  lieutenants   conducting the
departments, Canada is  content   and
