HAVE  LOVE'S  ���������?  . {From the Province.) <  Ottawa, June 22.���������When the Railway Committee of the House of Commons assembled this > morning, Mr.  Charles Drinkwater continued his ad-  address on behalf of the C. P. R. in  opposition to the Vancouver,- Victoria  & Eastern Bill. He did not believe the  Great Northern was sincere in its professed intention to build from Princeton westward through Canadian territory to the coast. The real object of  the company was to direct British  Manager Columbia trade. into American channels, to the detriment of Canadian  railways and Canadian interests. Tf  this is not its intention lettheV.V.ifc E.  accept such'a stipulation in the present  bill as will guarantee the construction  of an all-Canada road.  No Fear of Competition*.  It was not that the C. P. R.   feared  competition on fair and  equal   terms,  but that it believed in developing the  country on truly Canadian lines, so as  to conserve the country's resom^ces for  Canada's benefit.    It was no use disguising the fact that the   Canadian  Paicific believed the American corporation was seeking to divert Canadian  trade to its own country,  as against  Canadian interests and Canadian railway lines. It was J. J. Hill and American agression against the Canadian  Pacific and Canadian interests.  ���������     Plans an Amendment.  Mr. David Henderson, of Halton, asserted that no man in the committee  was opposed to the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern if its intention were  to build from  Vancouver through to  the Similkameen Valley.     If the company was sincere, though,' in its professions before the committee,  let it  accept an amendment   which would  guarantee the building of the western  section.of the proposed line.    He proposed,   accordingly,  that the powers  conferred by clause No. 3. should not  be made use of until, the V. V.'&E.  constructs   its   main   line   east  from  Vancouver,  in-Canadian territory, to  Princeton, or some other point, in the  Similkameen east of the Hope  mountains, to be approved by the Governor  in Council.  Mr. Ross Declined It.  Mr. Duncan Ross, promoter of the  bill, was asked why he could not accept this proposition, and answered because it was an unfair plan to kill the  bill in the interests of the C.P.R. The  V. V. Si E. had contracts already let  from Oro Denoro to Princeton, a distance of 1(50 miles. Parties wero now  in the field, but if Mr. Henderson's  amendment passed it meant that there  would be no line built into the Similkameen this year, and none would be  built until the company finished its  surveys through the Hope mountains.  Meanwhile the C. P. R. would be applying to the government of British  Columbia for a cash subsidy to build  Toronto, June 24th. It is officially  announced that the cort-rol of the War  Eagle-Centre Star and. St. Eugene  mines has passed from the Gooderham-  Blackstock syndicate into the hands of  a new syndicate composed of Toronto,  Montreal and New York capitalists.  The,Toronto men areW.D. Matthews  and Mi;. Osier, M. P., while the Montreal director will.be C.R. Hosmer.  The price paid is stated to be $825,-  000, carrying with it real estate and  government bonds aggregating half a  million dollars. -  .  The deal will give the Canadian Pacific complete control of all Trail mining  interests.  The Majority was 18.���������No Possibility  of Defeat Now.���������Commons Will  Make Short Work, and Nothing to  Fear From Senate.  DOMINION DAY SHOOT.  A shooting contest and strawberry  festival will be held at Hedley on July  1st, Dominion Day, under the auspices  of the ladies of St. Mary's Guild,  Programme of Events.

Strawberries and cream,  ice cream and lemonade will be served  by the ladies.  On Tuesday the V. V. &. E. Bill was  again before the Railway Committee,  and this time the agony was over.  A message from Duncan- Ross in the  afternoon announced that the Bill had  gone through with a majority of 18.  During the last few days serious inroads must have been made in the  ranks of those who opposed the Bill  when they were given to understand  the folly of their course.  In the House where party strife runs  high and hard knocks are given which  tend to irritate, men who do not understand the situation properly will unthinkingly line up for the party whip.  Fortunately, though, the question  was one of too deep importance to ns  all to allow partyism or anything else  Lo blind us to our own interests.  Hedley Conservatives, with those  elsewhere in the Similkameen riding,  wired R. L. Borden in no uncertain  tones as to what their wishes were.  Greenwood Conservatives did likewise.  Doubtless others in the Interior did so,  and the result has been evident in the  vote.    ..v  All ye croakers who think the Great  Northern is not going to  build here.^.,  right away, quit croaking, for it is.      'V  The road will come from Midway '  and will go through to the coast.

While Victoria's  development and present business interests have first place, the number is  made provincial in character, being an  excellent epitome of the industrial  wealth of B.

Upon the suggestion of the Minister  of Justice a. clause was adopted in  amendment so as to give the Governor  in Council authority to determine! at  what points theV.V. <fcE. should cross  the International boundary line.  Hon. Chas. Fitzpatrick thought the  V. V. & E. should give an assura.net' of  its intention to build a reasonable portion of the line between Oloverdale and  Princeton without delay.

The attendance was not very large  and it was particularly noticeable that  very few parents who had children attending school put in an appearance,  which circumstance it will be better to  ascribe to their satisfaction with the  manner in which the school has been  conducted than to any lack of interest.  A. Megraw was appointed chairman  and A. D. Worgan secretary.  The. annual report of trustees was  read and adopted: also that of the.  teacher, which was mostly statistical in  character.  Mr. McLean spoke of the satisfactory  manner in which the school had been  conducted by Mrs. Colbeck, teacher,  the hoard having a particularly easy  time, in that they had not been asked  during the whole term to consider any  complaint.

V. & E.  bill at Ottawa has 'developed a  feature tliat while at first view  appearing ominous 011 account  of the delay that lias been occasioned,    gives    encouragement  that the  bill  will  finally pass.  That feature is the  party line-  nip that has taken place on  the  railway  committee  where  the  parties are almost evenly divided, but even there the ministerialists have a majority of three  if they would all vote right and  it is up to them to control that  majority until it is  out of the  committee  stage   after   .which  there should be no further danger.     While Duncan Ross has  stood by his guns most nobly in  this  matter it  is  questionable  whether he has done it as skillfully as he might.     It is possible to court opposition by unnecessarily    antagonizing   and  difficulties are often made that  a little tact would have wholly  avoided.     Indeed the doings in  the committee as shown in the  extract from the  Ottawa  Citizen appearing in another column points to something of that  kind.     There is another way in  which this  opposition may be  accounted'for.    To the average  Canadian business intra east of  Winnipeg Vancouver is British  Columbia and Vancouver sentiment goes.     In this  case  Vancouver sentiinentjis not very assertive   for the bill   while  the  Province newspaper is  flat a-  gainst.      .Later���������Since    above  was jmt  in  tyj>e  it  is learned  that the bill has passed in committee by 18 majority.  China is getting tired of the  exclusion laws of this continent  and proposes to retaliate. A  Chinese poster states that the  government of Pekin will issue  an order against the purchase  of American goods, with a pen-  alty for violation of the order  and will proceed to have Americans who enter China fumigated at the point of entry and  charged $5 per head. The head  charge, is but a mild retaliation  for. the.-$500.00. per head placed  on Chinese,' but that will not  compare; with ��������� the fumigation  part of the programme as a letdown to the dignity of the  Yankee, whose boasting may be  pretty -rank at times'; but that  species of rankness was scarcely  thought to require anything so  heroic in the way of treatment  as fumigation.  Several interesting situations'  have been cropping'' up on the  railway, .question, and "specula-j  tiori'-was freely indulged in as;  to what' would take place if the |  V.

To people resdent  here this calls /up recollections  of the Similkameen and Keremeos charter obtained by the  Olalla Co. apparently as a Dominion charter for there seems  to be no record of it among the  l^royincial charters. On this a  survey was run from Princeton  to Penticton by Mr. Hi slop and  plans fyled. This���������'route would  not take them to the boundary  line and hence would not /serve  the purpose.

G.flacHAFFIE, Acting Manager  .NOTICE.  The Gazette is not afraid of  any knockout for the V. V. & E.  bill in the Senate. Dismiss that  as an absxxrdity. The instances  are rare in Canada when the  Senate ever interfered with railway legislation passed by the  Commons. It is quite true they  threw out the Drummond county railway bill some eight years  ago, and in doing so, rendered  Canada good service ; but now  the conditions are altogether  different. Then a large sum of  the people's money was involv-  The result of. the Russo-Japanese war taken with the experience in the Boer war will go  to show that because Oliver  Cromwell fought and prayed,  arid did the one as dilligently  and in earnest as he did the  other, it doesn't necessarily follow that any thieving, lying sc'al-  lawag can, by loud prayer and  boasting, invoke divine assistance for the accomplishment of  his nefarious ends. These two  Avars, and the experience, in  each case, of the under dog in  the fight should teach the lesson that to attempt to  " rule without the law,  Galling on the Lord,"  is to invite a good thrashing; for  the Lord apparently has no use  foi*.the canting hypocrisy that.  will lay grievous burdens on  the people, and cloak lying and  oppression with much prayer.  Kruger robbed the Uitlanders  right and left after securing the  investment of their capital in  the country by false promises,  and he persistently refused redress to them or a voice in the  management or direction of  their own affairs Avhen they  .Avere paying nine-tenths of the  whole amount of taxes required  to run the country. Russia's  conduct towards Japan in first  stealing Port Arthur and endeavoring by lying arid deceit,  not only to Japan but to all of  the powers, to purloin Manchuria and ultimately despoil Japan herself, Avas not the sort of  conduct upon which the divine  blessing could be consistently  asked.  Neither canting hypocrisy nor  the brand of superstitious religion by which the Slav hoped to  win battles by mummeries Avill  go any more. Japan may be  be called heathen but Iter conduct towards her own people  and to those of other countries  comes nearer the true christian  standard of ethics than anything we have seen from the  Slavs. ...

Wirth has been having an .unusually long attack from his old enemy  sciatica.  The ladies' sewing circle of the  Methodist church purpose running a  refreshment booth on Labor Day.  D. Morrison, .superintendent of development work an tho Sunset group  On Cooper Mountain was in town at  the end of last week.  Engineer- Tracy was in town over  . Sunday.    His camp has  been   moved  to Ashnola  a  considerable    distance  ' beyond Princeton.  Mrs. Arthur Clare and family arrived from Yinir on Saturday night's  stage and are stopping at the Hotel  Similkameen until Mr Clare can obtain  a house.  Good progress is being made with  tho. Hedley Lumber Company's river  drive, although the waiter in the Similkameen has been falling fastduring  the past ten days.  F. "W- Revely has a, new assistant in  his brother Chas. Revely. The daily  stage to Princeton and the general demand for horses and rigs has kept  them hustling.  Mr. G. H.  Winter of the   bank of  . B. N. A. is at present manager of the  Greenwood branch, having taken  the  place of Mr.Belt,' who goes to the head  office in Montreal.  Jack McKinnon put in a bad night  of it one night last week with some  particles of steel in his eye. After having part of it dug out, he obtained  some relief and time, and nature did  the rest.  Mr. Welby expects that his stage  will, after July 1st, carry a third mail  per week. This will enable people' of  Hedley to send out mail on Wednesday morning, and receive mail Thursday night.  W. W. Clark left on Friday morning. He did good business here for  the News-Advertiser which enjoys the  reputation of being the least sensational of the Coast dailies while not a whit  behind its rivals in the freshness of its  news.  The mystery of'the. gun and the roll  of blankets has been cleared up, and  was found to contain no element of  . tragedy after all. The only evil* result attending it was the necessity of  cutting a few inches off the muzzle on  account of the rust.  Hugh Hunter, Mining Recorder at  Princeton passed through Hedley last  week on his way to "Victoria, to attend  the investigation which was adjournedfrom Princeton on May 17th. The  special commissioner who is to hold  the inquiry is Deputy Minister of  Mines, R. F. Tokuie.  The Oroville Weekly Gazette, published by Fred. J. Fine is to hand, and  is a very creditable sheet. Volume 1,  No. 1 paints the prospects of Oroville  in roseate hue. and a very good case is  made out to warrant the hope of  something much better and more permanent than a mere railway construction toAvn. .'   .      .  J. D. Kearns left on Tuesday morning's flyer for points down the ri\T.er.  He took a bountiful supply of ammunition with him in the shape ' of  life insurance literature to bag a few  ��������� risks for the Mutual Life of Canada.  Tho sport may not be as thrilling as a  bear hunt at higher altitude, but the  fur will bo of bettor quality.  Petitions.-ire being circulated through  the district asking the Lands and  Works department to build a new road  on tho Canadian side between Sidley  and Osoyoos, The crossing of the line  with tho mails is said to be the main  difficulty in getting a mail route established between the Boundary and the  Similkameen. Should the Lands and  Works department accede to the request and build the road, it Avill leave  the Post Office department no excuse  for refusing to establish it.  In response to the request of the  Hedley Board of Trade to have fire  Avardens elected in Hedley, Government agent C. A. R. Lambly at Fair-  . view sent instructions to Constable  Haynes to have the matter attended  to on ,a certain date. The date fixed  avjus June 30th, -but as that date Avas  too near the holiday with a possibility  of some being out of town to attend  celebrations elsewhere, another date  was asked for Avhich Avill in all probability be one Aveek later, or Friday,  July 7th.  1 In the ��������� illustrated ��������� plate shoAving  members,of the B.

These items of-personal interest ihay  seem trivial here, but to readers at a  distance who were' formerly 'residents  of the district they are of interest and  are sought after.  Friday morning's stage for Penticton went out loaded down and two  'passengers were left behind for.lack of  -room. One of them, Miss Johnson,  teacher at the Nickel Plate wasihieing  home for the holidays, It was a case  of "valuable matter crowded out," but  tho assurance to that effect wasn't  'sufficient to overcome the disappointment.  Mr. C. E. Thomas Avas down from  Princeton this week attending special  meeting of the Licensing Board. Mr.  Thomas says that the failure of the  Granby Co. to take up the options  Ayhich they have recently held on Copper Mountain is no reflection whatever'  on the claims, as they did more in the  "way of ascertaining the value, of the  properties before they took the options  than they have done since.  Frank Logsden, sawyer for the Hedley Lumber Co., arrived in town on  Sunday night from Loomis, with his  bride, (ne- Miss Bell 'Chilson'.) - No  particulars of the event are to hand.  Mr. and Mrs Logsden arts receiving  congratulations from their . friends,  andinafeAv days they will take up  their abode near the .mill Avhere a  house has recently .been erected" for  them.  ��������� S.L.'Smith Avent''to Victoria last  we.ek.

FIGHT  Continued from First Pag-c.  that much this season.   The company  was.prepared to promise completion of  the line to Princeton within two years.  Amendment- Defeated.  A vote Avas then reached on Mr. Henderson's 'amendment, which' stood sixty  to sixty, and Avas defeated on the casting vote of Chairman Archie Camphell  amidst considerable con fusion. The,  Opposition.members present, with the  single exception of Pringle, of Cornwall, voted for Henderson's {intendment. Hon. Mr. Fitzpatrick supported  the amendment, whilst Hon. Messrs.  Eminerson, Fielding, Prefontaine and  Sifton voted No. * The British, Columbia contingent all. went against the  amendment.  Hon. Or. Ei Foster pointed out that no  real evidence had been''-'given of the  existence of any engineering difficulties to warrant crossing the United  States boundary. He asked for engineering testimony on the subject,  Hon. Mr. Fielding suggested that the  clause might be altered so as to permit  of the company making'no alterations  in its connections other than those  absolutely necessary.-'.to overcome phy-.  sical difficulties on the Canadian side  of the boundary.  This and other points had not been ,  disposed of when 1 o'clock arrived and  the members separated for lunch. By  common consent it Avas agreed that  the agreements Avith companies for  American connections should be held  subject to the Railway Commission's  approval.  Pinions sessions of the committee  had been stormy. A few paragraphs  clipped from the Ottawa Citizen Avill  give some idea of the acrimonious  character of the proceeding. The  Citizen says; ^  " Dr. Sproule, who followed, Avas  persistently interrupted and gota hearing Avith difficulty. " T have been a  member of this house for twenty-seven  years," exelaimed the Doctor amid the  uproai-, "and I'm not going to surrender my rights to mob rule."  There was another uproar and some  one called out something about 'Or-  jingemen.' ^  "What haA'e the Orangemen got to  do with this matter," exclaimed Dr.  Sproule. "Is it decency or becoming  to members of parliament to demean  themselves in such a vrtiy ?"  Mr. Duncan Ross, promoter of the  bill, charged that the proposal to refer  it back Avas simply obstruction .with  the A'iew of delaying matters and killing the bill now that it was getting  near the end of the session.  "We'll be here six. months yet," said  Mr. Monk amid laughter.  Col. Tisdale protested against the  charge that the bill Avas beiug held up.  Mr. Belcourt thought the bill might  be gone on with with the exception of  clause one, Avhich could be referred to  the department.  Colonel Sam Hughes, in a vigorous  speech, said that if the bill was being  delayed it was through the ignorance  of the promoter in dealing Avith the  committee.     The minister of justice  had given the strongest kind of a hint  to have the bill sent back and the promoters should act upon it. , "The honorable member," exclaimed Colonel  Hughes, "need not think he can come  here Avith a mob  behind   him,  shout  ing 'carried' and rush through this  bill. If he puts on such a. swagger let  me say that measure, will not pass till  the snow Hies."  Finally the vote was taken and the  amendment to refer back the bill to  the sub-committee carried by the close  vote of 53 to 51.  NOTICE  Soutli African War Land Grant Act.
