Fifth Year-No. Sir
W
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuusday, Hay IS,
Issued Twice a Week
J. J. HILL'S PUNS
Talks  Freely Regarding  His
New Canadian Transcontinental Line
Thinks the   Death-Knell   of
Railway  Subsidies .Has
Been Sounded
Speaking of the plans to build a
line from Vancouver to Winnipeg,
James J. Hill, the great railway magnate, recently made the following
statement to a representative of the
Winnipeg Tribune:
"As you of course know, we have
bought our terminals right into the
heart of the city of Winnipeg, and we
shall lose no time in getting our con
neoting line from the Boundary into
the city constructed. It should be
finished next fall. Then we are now
pushing forw-ard the grading on the
branch linos from Gretna to Portage
la Prairie and from Bottineau via
Boissevain and the Souris to Brandon,
having secured terminals in both
Brandon and Portage la Prairie."
"And   what about the main line!"
"Yes, that is important. We have
fully decided on that. As you know,
we have a line in British Columbia to
Pernio, and we propose, without tin
necessary delay, to push that line
across the great western prairie until
Winnipeg is reached."
"I suppose your route will be via
Lethbridge and south of tho Canadian
Pacific main line!"
"Not by any means," answered
Mr. Hill emphatically, going over to
a map of western Canada,which showed all thc railway lines. "We do not
consider that (running his index finger aernss the territory south of the
Canadian Pacific from Lethbridge to
near Weyburu) very good land and
we propose to cross the Canadian
Pacilic and run a line considerably
north of it, where the country is A-l
and where the local trallic is sure to
he heavy."
"Where would you cross the Canadian Pacilic—at Medicine Hat?"
"Well, that we cannot say at preS'
ent. That is a detail which will have
to be settled after the fullest investigation of the country's resources."
"Then you are not thinking of the
most direct transcontinental route in
order to capture passenger traffic."
".No, we arc not so much concerned
iu that as iu tapping a territory prolific iu agricultural resource!.
"The two great needs of the settler
of your vast country urn shelter and
warmth. Providence made niagnifi
cent, provision for both, if care is but
taken to see that they are made avai
able. The forests of British Colunib a
will furnish all the lumber necessary
fur hollies if this great resource i;
husbanded, and the Crow's Nest possesses al] the fuel necessary to kee|
the teeming millions of the centuries
to come warm. But your people should
see that both these prime necessities
are supplied to the masses at the low
est cost. For our part we shall do
our best to help the settlers out with
low rates for lumber and coal."
On the subjeot of subsidies, ovor-
capitalization and rates, Mr. Hill
said:
"There will soon be an end to your
subsidy policy. Jt is entirely unnecessary. With the country developed as it is railroads should be built
without costing the people a cent.
That is the policy we have followed
iu our country, and that it has paid
handsomely I can easily prove.
"We propose to build our Canadian
at the lowest possible cost consisting
with excellent work and thorough
equipment, for, as you must have
gleaned from the tenor of my policy,
I am a believer in the best road bed,
the lowest grades, thc biggest engines
and thc largest capacity in rolling
stock.
"In Canada we do not propose to
bond our roads for a dollar. We
shall just issue stock representing the
actual cash outlay, and us we have
never figured ou receiving more from
the people than an average of seven
per cent ou our outlay you will see
that the burden upon the people will
be light. Our policy will unable us
to set a new jpuee in the matter of
rates, aud J think you can mark it
down that as a result of our advent
into your splended territory an effect*
ive period will be put to the bonusing
or subsidy system. I should scarcely
think the publio men would cure to
propose subsidies, and that companies
would have the hardihood to ask them
in the face of facts."
"What do you estimate wil bo the
cost of your line from Winnipeg to
Vancouver when completed?"
"We huve gone pretty carefully into estimates and the most rational
conclusion we have been able tn reach
is that it will cost in the neighbor
hood of thirty million."
Questioned as to the opposition de
veloping in eastern Canada to his invasion of western Canada and with
regard to the diversion of trade, Mr.
Hill replied:
"Why, there's absolutely nothing
to it. We have no intention whatever of invading eastern Canada, and
under no circumstances ean we divert
trade The tariff effectively prevents
any divertion of trade even if there
were a possible aim. No, what we
want is to provide a system of railways in your country to curry your
products for you, t<i help develop and
build up your country; that is our
sole aim, We will undoubtedly prove
it great feeder for the Canadian Puci-
lic and Grand Trunk Paciflo, and they
will no doubt be glad to handle what
wc feed them."
"How about incoming freight)"
"Well, with a line of our own to
Chicago, and with our connections, we
will of course be an active competitor
for freight from eastern to western
Canada, and we hope to get a good
share of it. But so far as that being
any injury to the country it will, on
the contrary, be a distinct advantage,
if we are able to carry it ut just rates.
"No," added Mr. Hill, "there is nothing whatever to be alarmed at, and I
am not losing any sleep over unv
criticism on that account. We know
from what origin they spring. The
people need r.our system aud judging
by the nature of the encouragement
we are receiving on all hands the
people want it and arc unanimously
in favor of having it."

ert. It is stntcd that Mr. Covert
duly applied to the commissioners
at Vernon for the water rights in
question in October, 1S87. Subsequently the commissioners, a|ipnront-
ly overlooking Mr. Covert's claim,
issued a permit of use to Vaughan
and Mclnnis in November, 18SS.
Later on in March, 1889, covert's
license was issued, and across the
face of it wns written in red ink that
it was of date October, 1887. Mclnnis has become insane and his
rights arc represented by a committee. The court will now be asked
to adjust the water rights of the
several claimants, and an interesting
trial is looked for. S. S. Taylor. K.
C., of Nelson, represents the plaintiffs and J. A. MacDonald, K. C,
will appear for the defendants.
