Kettle Valley Line Not Represented Before Railway
Commission
The following are the proceedings
in the case of the City of Grand
Forks against the Kettle Valley lines
as presented before the railway commission at its sitting in Nelson on
Monday last, and reported in the
Nelson Daily News:
One hour was consumed by the
hoard of railway commissioners at
the Nelson session yesterday in hearing the argument of the city of
Grand Forks in support of its re-
■ quest for an order of "speeilic performance," to be served upon the
Kettle Valley Railway company, in
connection with the latter's engagement to build and operate its line
from Grand Forks, the time within
which the engagement was to have
been carried out having expired
somv time ago. At the end of the
hour the commissioners ruled that
the railway coinpany was entitled to
longer notice of the application being made than had been made, and
the matter was left open, in order to
give the railway company opportunity to present its case.
The Grand Forks application was
described as "Application of the
, corporation of the city of Grand
Forks, B.C., for an order directing
the Kettle Kiver Valley liailway
company to construct a line of railway from Grand Forks for a distance of 50 miles up the north fork
of the Kettle river, and for such
other relief as the board shall hold
the city entitled to under terms of
agreement with said railway dated
.March 7, 1900, aud bylaw No. 36."
No representative of the Kettle
River Valley liailway company being present, the service of notice on
A. T. Demuth, general manager of
, the company, at Grand Forks, wis
proved by allidavit.
Tbe  case for the city of Grand
Forks was ably presented by A. C.
I Sutton,   the   city's   solicitor.  . Air.
Sutton stated that the terms of  the
I agreement between the city and the
[railway company were contained  in
agreetnmt,   which  was entered
I into March 7, 1906, and  which ..was
ratified by a city bylaw which, alter
being approved   by  popular   vote,
was reconsidered and  finally passed
I ou   April 0,   19l)li.    Under tbe en-
to Penticton. With the Mid way-
Penticton line this case had nothing
l to do. It was apparent, however,
that the government meant the
railway to build from Grand Forks
to Franklin camp, which was 40
miles distant. The terms of the act,
however, only required the company
to carry the line 30 miles, and allowed four years for completing the
line and bringing it into operation.
Tbe company was required to grade
25 miles of tbe line in 1910, and to
commence construction at three
placed. He understood the company claimed to have started at three
places, Merritt, Penticton and one
other place. In addition to securing a provincial subsidy, the company was exempted from  the  pay
of
years.
What the city of Grand Forks
especially wanted was the carrying
of construction to the Franklin
camp, in order that the great number of low grade mining properties
there might be opened up. There
was a great mineralized belt, but it
was impossible to develop it without transportation. Over $100,000
had been spent on the McKinley
mine, which now had ore available
for shipping, 825,000 had been
spent on the Maple Leaf, and #10,-
000 on another property.
Prof. Mills asked why the government intervened in the matter.
FEASIBLE SCHEME
Company Proposes to Install
Plant to Irrigate the
Vulley
DIRECTORS MEET
The following are some of the  answers:
After   the   ranchers  became the
owners of the plant, the annual cost 	
of maintenance would be very  low.
The payments for the plant could be Final Details in Connection
In reply Mr. Sutton gave a condensed history of the Midway &
Vernon liailway company, which
alter securing charter and provincial
aid for a railway line between Vernon and Midway stopped by want
of capital, abandoned construction
at liock creek, and defaulted in the
payment of its laborers. He was
not sure whether, in view of its failure, it received its subsidy. At all
events, under recent provincial legislation, its obligations were assumed
by the Keltle River Valley Railway
company, which also secured charter, right of way and provincial aid.
Prof. Mills—But did the government impose the various conditions
you previoucly mentioned as conditions of receiving the bonus?
Mr. Sutton—Undoubtedly,but the
company has four years in which to
complete construction.
The solicitor closed his case hy
reading a lengthy allidavit from the
secretary of the Grand Forks board
of trade, iu which he set forth from
his personal knowledge of the country, the great mineral ewalth of the
district comprised in the Franklin
and Gloucester camps, together with
the present status   of  development,
A meeting of the ranchers of the
valley was held in the city on Monday, the object being to listen to an
explanation of an irrigation project
which J. L. Manly and Henry Russell, who lives eighteen miles from
Republic, have devoted considerable
ment   of   provincial  taxes for'ten   li'"e to   perfecting.    There  was a
arge attendance, nearly every landowner in the valley being present.
Mr. Manly briefly outlined the
intentions of the promoters. Mr.
Russell owned a water right in the
main Kettle river south of the international boundary line. Tbey proposed to organize a stock company,
construct a dam at some point above
Danville, and by means of a 4-foot
main bring enough water across
the line hy the gravity system to irrigate 4000 acres, or all the level
land in the valley. The plant, for
the construction of which the capital had been secured, would eost
about 8200,000. The company
would furnish 8-acre inches of
water per annum for $50 per acre,
the payment of tbis sum to be
spread over a period of from ten
to fifteen years. After the 850 per
acre fee had been paid off the farmers would own the plant. Every
acre of land in the valley must be
included in this scheme, but if a
farmer owned more land than he
thought he could afford to have irrigated, the company would buy a
portion of it at its actual value prior
to irrigation. Besides furnishing
water for irrigating purposes,
the pressure of the water would be
strong enough to give every farmer
ample lire protection. Mr. Manly
staled that there were no legal difficulties iu the way of carrying out
the proposed project, which hechar-
acterized as the best gravity irrigation system ever installed iu this or
any other country. It was tbe only
system that would give tbe ranchers
water over the entire valley. _f the
terms of the company were accepted
by tbe farmers, the company would
agree to have the plant completed
by the time the water was needed
next summer.
Mr. Russell said that   Mr. Manly
had   fully   explained  the   proposed
gagements, thc oity gave permission I several properties having spent con-1 system.    He was familiar with irri-
to the   railway  company  to  build aiderable sums, and  there being at gation projects, as he bail  had con

city, the railway company  in   turn j claims,   besides   numerous    crown j in   various   parts   of   the country,
agreeing  to   construct and have in
operation a   line  up railway from
Grand  Forks   up the north fork of
tbe Kettle river valley, a distance of
50 miles,   within   two   years  after
.1 uue 22, 1906. The company,  however, had failed to fulfil its   side of
the agreement,  resting construction
spread   over   either  ten   or fifteen
years.
There would be no legal difficulties in bringing the water across the
boundary line. Possibly two companies would have to be organized,
one on each side the like, but the
same persons would own the stock
in both.
Six-acre inches of water per annum was sufficient for irrigating purposes in this locality.
There would be a fall of 22   feet
from the dam to the boundary line.
The project would have to   be a
unanimous proposition.
If the company failed  to deliver
the water, the   scheme would   cost
the ranchers nothing.
The valley would be worth one or
two million dollars more with water
than it is without water, consequently the question of irrigation   was of
greater  importance   to the farmers
than to the promoters.
When the ranchers had paid  for
the  installation   of the plant they
would own it.
Messrs. Lawrence and Clark suggested the appointment  of a  com
mittee   to consider the proposition,
and to report at a subsequent meeting, but Mr.  Manly  adviced  those
present  to   carefully   consider   the
scheme   when  they  got home, and
during the week he and Mr. Russell
would pay tbem a personal visit and
obtain their views on the matter.
During the past few days Messrs.
Manly   and   Russell   have   mude a
tborough'canvass of the   valley, and
they report having met with gratifying success, all the large land-owners
having pledged themselves  to  sup-
pojt the enterprise.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER  16,  1910
It is extremely gratifying
tu lio able to announce that a
tangible scheme to irrigate the
the orchard lands of the Kettle valley bas at last been
evolved. Tbe project now being promoted by Messrs. J. L.
Manly and Henry Russell, to
put water on 4000 acres of
the level land in the valley, is
so simple, reasonable and
practicable that it appeals to
every one the moment it i.s
fully explained. It is to be
hoped that these gentlemen
will be given sufficient encouragement to carry out
their plans. There may be
some legal difficulties in the
way, but at present they are
apparent, i'he claim that the
system might injure the Cascade plant is scarcely tenable,
as the water taken from the
river would find its way back
into the stream. With an up-
to-date gavity irri gation system in operation at this point,
thc future of the valley would
be assured. We trust the promoters will have smooth sailing, and that the plant will be
a reality by tbe time the water is needed on the land next
summer.

siSJHT	
THIS SAME MACHINE WILL POSITIVELY APPEAR EVERY
DAY AT THE SPOKANE INTERSTATE EAIR, OCTOBER 3 TO 9, 1910.
The star attraction ot the Spokane Interstate Fair, the one big feature
which the management expect will bring the largest crowds to Spokane the
week ol' October 3d, Is the Curtlss Aeroplane. This marvelous flying
machine is the same one that won so many prizes In Los Angeles last
winter, the one that made the successful flight from Albany to New York,
and also from New York to Philadelphia and return.
The contract which the Spokane Interstate Pair management baa mads
with the Curtlss Company of Hammondsport, N. Y„ calls for a payment ef
approximately JIUOO a flight, and under the terms of the agreement, the
Curtlss Company are to send two complete machines and their most expert
aviator. At least four or more (lights are to be made every day of the Pair,
October 3 to 9, and the machines will also be on exhibition on the ground!
at. all times.
der of specific performance directing
the company to carry out its ngreement with the city of Grand  Forks.
Asked hy I'rof. Mills if the company denied their obligation, Mr.
Sutton replied: "Nn. Tbey say they
will send some men up. Tbey did
send half a dozen foreigners." He
added that the Great Northern Kail
way company had desired to secure
a right of through the town, but the
citizens favored the local company,
and the oity had given it the preference. The action of the Kettle
Kiver Valley company hud kept out
a company that would have built.
It should therefore be compelled to
build, as it bad agreed. There were
no physical obstacles, the grade being easy.
Chairman Mnbee—What section
of the Railway act do you rely ou?
Mr. Sutton—On no part cular section, but on the general authority I
have understood the railway commission has in such a case.
Tbe chairman then stated that
the 190!) amendment to the Railway
act of 1908 gave the board power lo
require specific performance, the act
as originally enacted not conferring
that power. A doubt, however, h id
arisen as to whether this Conferred
on the board jurisdiction in tbe case
of agreements entered into prior to
the enactment of this legislation.
The case that hail been discussed at
Ottawa was far older than Ibis one,
the agreement dating back 30 years,
the company involved being tbe
Belleville & Hustings Tlie board
itself bad never had occasion thus
far to pass upon lhal point, ll it
Should be the (act lhat the board
could not go hack to agreements entered into prior to the enactment of
this legislation, then il li id no juris
diction iu Ibis case,
Another factor also deserved consideration, if an action were brought
iu the civil courts to compel specific
performance, if the thing asked to be
done was unreasonable ur inexpedient,
tbe court would exercise its discretion
and would not order specific performance If the bniiid of railway commissioners entered upon tbe ground nf
specific performance, ought they nutlo
proceed on the lines followed liy the
courts, in dealing with such cases? If
it were impossible to perform tbe contract, or if for anv oilier reason il
were unreasonable lo ask it,how could
tbe board order specific  pel t'ormanceV
Mr, Sutton—There are no grounds
of that character in this case lor re
fusing specific performance. It could
not be contended that the thing asked
to be ordered is unreasonable when the
coir.pany contracted twice to do it.
Chairman Mabee—The faol of their
making a contract with tbe government does not help you. Your contract must stand en its own bottom.
Mr. tint ton—I am fully aware of
that.
Chairman Mabee asked where Mr,
Warren,who had left Toronlo to build
the road,was, and Mr. Sutton believed
he was somewhere in the province, but
he bad not been able to reach liiin

the opinion that, sufficient time had
not heen given for bhe representatives
of the company to appear.
is cither void or it is in effect, I do
not know why that clause was put in.
The argument was mnde by Mb.
Sutton in connection with the reference the chairman had made ti> the law
courts, that the railway commissioners
had much larger discretionary powers
than a court of law, and in all good
faith, he asked the board to ditect the
company to build, whether there was
an agreement in existence or not.   He
court held that it was unreasonable to
compel him to keep 150 men turning
out goods for which there was no
market.
Chairman Mabee remarked that it
was hard to look after the rights of
people who had not enough interest in
their own business to be    represented.
"We'd naturally consider it, and see
what we can do," he remarked. He
asked Mr. Sutton to write to Mr,
Warren, informing him about the application, in order that tbe company's
views could be presented.

bis business when he's afraid ho won't
be able to get away to a poker   game.

Scrutinizing the   bvlaw, Chairman j did not believe the  railway  company
would object it' thuy were ordered by
the commission to do a reasonable
amount of work.
Chairman Mabee—The case is surrounded by diHi.iulties. In whatever
direction we look, there is an awkward
point staring us in tne face. Here is
one of them. A part of the agreement
was a time limit, We cannot order
specific performance, for that would
involve doing the work in time that is
past.
Mr. Sutton—Hut the right of application to you would not accrue to
us until the company bud defaulted. If
we appied to you before tbe time bad
expired, they would say to us, "Here,
wv are going to build yet. Give us
time."
An old case determined many years
ago in tbe Ontario courts was cited by
tbe   chairman,   as an instance of the
HOTEL    PROVINCE
Mabee came to a clause that stated
that if the company failed to fulfil the
terms of the agreement, the bylaw
would be void. "If the bylaw dies,
why does not the agreement die "'ith
it?" he asked.
Mr. Sutton said the company had
constructed its line and built its station in the city, and so realized upon
its share of the mutual advantages.
Chairman Mabee—Is not that part
covered hy this clause which provides,
in the event of default, that another
company may operate the line, on payment of reasonable tolls?
Mr. Sutton—That might he a little
satisfaction, but it certainly is not satisfaction for tbe line not being built
up the nortli fork.
Chairman Mabee—I do not know
what it means, tbat "the bylaw will
be void."

engaged to operate a factory employing 150 hands,   for   ten  years.    The
