History is .repeating itself. In 1898  D. C. Corbin made application to the  Dominion parliament for a charter to  construct a railway from Marcus,: on  the Spokane Falls <te Northern, along  Kettle river to the Boundary mining  district. The. people directly interested in the development of the great  'bodies'of low grade ore in the Boundary were anxious that this' charter  should be granted as the initial step in  securing transportation facilities, without/which no further development  could be carried out.  The application was opposed by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  and not only was there a strong lobby  maintained at Ottawa,- but the services  of newspapers friendly to the Canadian  corporation were enlisted. During the  time the measure was before the railway committee the old flag was vigorously waved and column after column  of patriotic twaddle, was published.  The bogie man of a foreign railway  corporation draining the wealth of our  country for tlie benefit of our neighbors to the south was trotted out to  frighten the timid and arouse well-  intentioned citizens of this country who  are always ready to show their loyalty  to Canadian institutions when it entails no sacrifice of themselves or the  particular portion of the Dominion in  which their interests lie.  The Piunciple Involved  in the Corbin application was the right  of an important mining district in British Columbia to secure the best transportation facilities. That right was  never denied any other portion of the  Dominion. It wasa principle which the  people of British Columbia should have  stood by and fought for, but unfortunately at that time, as now, there were  men and newspapers in our province  who were prepared to accept the patriotic cry, and were prepared to be  frightened by the bogie man  in  order  The   Great   Northern    Now  Lands Passengers in  "   Hedley.

The salvation of the  Boundary district depends upon low  transportation rates, and mining companies are extending their operations  strong in the* assurance that as long as  the Great Northern railway is a competitor of the Canadian Pacific railway  in the Boundary they will always have  reasonable freight'rates.  A greater Boundary district is anxiously waiting for a railway. The trend  of mining greatness in British Columbia has been westwards. In the early  90's Silver Slocan was the mecca of  the argonauts. Later on the Rossland  camp attracted the miner and the capitalists.    To-day the  ���������'HO.UNOLESS   BOUNDARY   DISTBICT  eclipses Rossland, and'the day is not  far distant when the. Suuilkanieen will  be the banner mining district of British  Columbia.- - .  The politicians and the chartcrinong-  ers built many railways on paper into  the Similkanieen. The Great Northern  is now prepared to build a bona fide  railway from the Boundary to the  coast. Contracts wi 11 be let in a few  days to construct the road to Princeton, and.later on this road will bo make connections and Royer provides  continued to the coast.

A welcomed visitor to Hedley on  Monday night was .LP. Royer who  with his driver Ernest Lenho and three  passengers arrived sharp on time in  the Overland .Flyer.' It was on May  15th, the date mentioned in the Gazette  three weeks ago, which shows that  when Royer sets out to do a. thing he.  generally gets there.',''  The overland 'flyer has  to  travel  to  And Passes Resolution in Favor of V.

A measure was recently introduced in the Doniiiubn parliament to  cure these defects. No sooner was this  done than, the same old flag waved, the  same old newspapers are publishing  the same old arguments, and the same  old bogie man is masquerading in the  same old clothes.  In no other portion of the Dominion  would the suggestion that trade is to  be regulated by destroying railway  competition be tolerated for a single  moment. Surely is is not unreasonable  to demand for the district most directly interested  THE SAME FJ^EEDOlf  accorded othcr.jportions of the Dominion in the development of a railway  policy. In the carrying and assembling  of our minerals we must follow natural  channels whether or not they conform ;  to political imaginary lines. Grades |  are jnore important than distance, and I  we must adapt- our policy to the phy- j  sical features of the country. AVe '  must not try to ship low grade ores on  high gnule railways. If no obstructions are placed in the way of railway  builders they will follow the natural  conformation of the country. The  construction of a. railway from Robson  to Midway by the. Canadian Pacific  railway shows great pluck and 'enterprise in railway building,   but it is not  bound to.-increase week by week, the  Flyer on the eastern end has a large  local patronage between Phoenix,"  Greenwood, JM id way a nd Che.sa w.

Leaving Hedley on the return -trip  at 6:30 a.m., passengers are landed in  Phoenix at 9:80 next morning in time to  take the. outgoing train for Spokane.  TURNED THE TABLES.  Jim  Hill's   Ball-players  Put It all Over  Hedley in a Well-contested Game.  Acting upon the earnest solicitation  of Senator ..Teinplemah,' the Victoria  Board of Trade endorsed the VVV.&E.  Railway Bill now before, the Railway  Committee of the Federal House.  Senator Tenipleman wired Mr. S. .1.  Pitts, president of the Victoria Board  of Trade, from Ottawa, on May 5, as  follows:  "Strong resolution Board Trade endorsing V. V. & E. proposed construction to Princeton this year, and on to  coast, connecting at New AVestminster  bridge and Cloverdale for Victoria,  would be. of great assistance before  Railway Committee. Tuesday. Send to  Clive Pringle, who represents Board of  Trade: Boundary country, reply if can  be passed without opposition."  The request was immediately dealt  with, and on the afternoon of May 5  Mr. Pitts telegraphed as follows to  Senator Tenipleman:  "Council Board of Trade met this  afternoon to consider subject-matter  of your telegram and decided to call  general meeting board Monday afternoon, with view to having proper resolution passed. Telegraph full particulars V. V. <fc E. proposals, staling  route, within what time to be. completed, and if guarantee can be obtained  assuring connection with Victoria via  Cloverdale. Are present proposals to  Railway Committee being made on  behalf of Great Northern, and what  privileges are being asked?"  Then the Victoria board grew anx  ious about  Vancouver's share   in   the  ���������AUK.VTS l-'OIS������������������  MASON <������. RISCH Pianos.  HEDL&Y,  ^asg-s-ga-s-ssssisisi-s^a^ss:  B.6.  V. V. &  E.    PREAMBLE   PASSED  The preamble of the V. V. Ac K. bill  passed in committee in Ottawa, and  the bill itself is being considered clause  yby clause. The bill provides for a detour of some 12 miles in American territory between Midway and Oro to escape the high grade over Sidley Mountain.  i\Jr. McPherson gave notice of the  following amendment: "The company  shall within two years from the passing of this act commence the construction of the western portion of its main  line from Cloverdale and continuously  prosecute construction in an easterly  direction to Princeton along the route  as laid down in the original charter of  the company: chapter 75 and 00, Victoria, statutes of B. C."  that southern British Columbia might  be continued a preserve of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. In  1S98 the Canadian Pacific railway  lobby was too strong, and the Corbin  charter did not pass.  But the road was built. Corbin sold  his interests to the Great Northern  Railway Company, and that company,  after encountering many difficulties,  succeedi d in constructing a road from  Marcus west through Grand Forks to  Pho'iiix. To-day the Great. Northern  railway is operating the road Mr. Corbin asked permission to build. Instead  of draining the wealth of Canada into  the United States this road is draining  the wealth of the United States into  Canada. Not a pound of Boundary  (-'reek ore is treated in American  smellers: tlie ore of Republic, Wash.,  is being treated at the smelters of  Grand Forks and Greenwood.

The policy which the Canadian Pacific railway and its satellites ask us to  pursue in British Columbia is the Chinese policy of the closed ' door. Such a  policy will leave many of our mining  properties undeveloped.  The contour of the country in southern British Columbia shows the need  of southern   connection.    Tlie   valleys  I senger replaced him and held them  down pretty well until the last innings when they became altogether too i  familiar: and yet- the utter collapse of  the home team in this last innings cannot be charged up against the pitcher  although they hit him pretty freely,  when it is seen that, the whole three  outs of the innings were fanned out  over the home pl.ite. There was practically no support in that innings. A  dry rot set in and the field went all to  pieces.

With the advent of the  Northern into the district  G rea t  THIS   HATE   WAS   HKDl.'CKI.l  from time to time until to-day the rate  is less than 25 cents a ton. On a daily  output of 3,000 tons a day, which the  Granby mines now has or will soon  reach, this will mean a direct saving of  $1,500 a day to that company alone. A  saving of 50 cents a ton only those who  know the small margin of profit in exploiting these inexhaustible mines of  low grade ore can fully appreciate.  Similar reductions were made, and are  run north and south, and profitable  transportation lines must conform to  them. If our southerly boundary were  the 15th pa railed of latitude instead of  the? 19th, as it should be, we could have  had our own line east and west running  sembling ores where they would be ;  most profitably smelted. But it is no i  use to cry over what we have lost. We  must make the best of what we have, j  We protest against southern British i  Columbia being tlie victim of the folly  of forcing railway lines to conform to;  and without subsidy,   and   sliouli  strongly supported. '  The board then passed the following  lvsolution, though not without, opposition :  "Whereas, legislation is now being  asked from tiie Dominion Government,  to assist, in the building of a- line of  railway from ICootenay to the coast*  "Beit resolved that this board unanimously support said bill, provided that  a binding guarantee he exacted that the  railway be built from Princeton to the  British   Columbia   coast,   and   that   a  ;'er service be  our years."  : played better  ali-round   ball   than    in  I the first match.

Concerning the  vote on the second reading the  Globe says:   ^  "On the introduction of these  bills the Globe took its position  definitely against any action on  the part of the Dominion parliament directing or determin-  ino;  the  educational  policy   of  ic member for Yale-Cariboo  certainly deserves credit for his  fight at'Ottawa for the V. V. ������&  E.  bill.     His course  on   other  questions   may be faulty, and  persistence  may be   lacking in  his attention to matters  of departmental detail for his Constituents;    but on   the V..V. & E.  bill he has done  all that  could  reasonably be" required of him,  and has done it well.     Fortunately for hmiself, for the bill and  for his   constituents,   his   fesi-  tlence in the Boundary which is  at'present the centre, of extensive mining  operations   in  his  constituency, litis made him thoroughly conversant with every  phase of the question and eminently fitted him to present it.  That he has used his qpportuni-  , ties is a matter for cougratula-  jtion and.his opponents in  thio  \ district will be as ready to grant  I hi in all the credit that belongs  I to him as those who are of the  jsnme politicalfaith.    And now,  ! if he were only a little more persistent in looking after the post  office"-department  and t^e department of public works to ��������� see  that a third  mail  per  week is  put on without delay and secure  the telephone extension asked  for, he would help out his constituents very -much;     To present a petition or a resolution  and to add thereto his own recommendation is very  good as  far as it goes but   it is   not   e-  nough.    To do this and then sit  down to'a-Avait meekly and un-  j complainingly the SAveet pleas-  j ure of a head of a  department,  i'Avill never do.     A head of a department is, after all, only a ser-  j vant of the people and not a being to inspire awe.     The representative   after   a    reasonable  time, say ten days from the first  presentation of his  request,  is  expected to make his round of  these departments    eArery   feAV  days; rap liis little knuckles on  the minister's door; insist upon  seeing the minister himself and  ask  the  questions "when" and  "why."

Not only on  is a matter of proA'incial rights, but on  ])iactical grounds as a matter of broadened their minds and lop  the new provinces,  consti tuti 01 ta 1 gi ���������oun d  British Columbia is drawing  heavily upon Manitoba for settlers, and as a class Ave could  have no better. They are thoroughly Canadian in sentiment  to begin with. Originally from  Ontario and the maritime provinces, a couple of decades or so  on the boundless prairies has  public policy, the Globe took it-  position against the educational  clauses in the autonomy bills.  "More than that, it was argued by the Globe that as a  matter of public policy all contentious and controArer.sial questions should be left for settlement to the people directly and  immediately concerned. That  position Ave-took at the beginning of the controversy. By  that position Ave still stand. The  debate in the house of commons supplied no adequate reason for abandoning that position. The strength and character of the vote haAre no bearing  upon it. A question of the constitution cannot be settled by  the yeas and nays of parliament. We find no'fault with  those members who have taken  a position essentially  different  from.  ours.  w  are not their  judges. To their own constituents they stand or fall, if they  can justify their conduct at the  bar of their own intelligence  and conscience and sense of  public duty and if they can give  full and satisfactory account of  their stewardship (o those  whose representatives they are  they need have no misgivings.  But if not, nothing else is worth  while.  "For itself, the Globe; is quite  content to await the judgment  of the future. The logic of e-  vents will show 'whether this  course or that best seiwes the  interests of the Liberal party  and the still higher interests of  the country; whatever happens  to these school clauses and to  the men responsible for their e-  naetment it is the duty of every  true Canndian iioav and always  to seek those things that make  for the unity of our composite  population, the development of  our varied resources and the attainment of these higher ideals  of individual life and national  character by Avhich alone a  country is made great.  ped off countless prejudices. Industrious and resourceful, they  accumulated a generous portion  of this Avorld's goods which they  are bringing Avith them to British Columbia.

Still another hotel is projected for  Hedley. Mr. Jackson from the Boundary is going to build on Haynes St.  on the lot between Schubert's store  and the creel:.  Chas. Henderson, who has been  freight agent for the C. P. R.. at Crah-  bi-ook, is. visiting his father, W. J.  Henderson, of Hotel Hedley, having  obtained si:: weeks' leave of absence.  Jno. S.

B, de Veber, of the Bank of  Montreal returned on Friday morning  from Copper Mountain. Messrs  Sweeny and Henderson went on  through the Nicola country to Spence's  Bridge,  Readers of the Gazette who have  been accustomed to the sort of mail  service handed out to this portion of  the dominion will of course be surprised (?) to learn that there are only two  mails per week into the Similkameen.  Spring Social and guessing competition will be given by the ladies of  Saint Mary's Guild, in the room back  of Mr. Schubert's store, Victoria Day,  May 24th commencing at 8 o'clock,  p. m.

Mr. Jeffrey sold his house and lot on  Ellis Avenue, at present being used for  the school to the local manager of the  Bank of B. N. A., who in all probability has made the purchase for another  party. The general verdict [is that at  the price paid, the purchaser, has certainly made a gilt-edged investment.  In the. report of the Methodist Conference for British Columbia, the list  of stations for the Kamloops district  shows that the pastor to be. stationed  in Hedley for the coming year is Rev.  Louis Thomas. For Keremeos it states  that one is to be supplied, and this  may mean that the supply will be  from Hedley.  A benefit concert in aid of the Nickel  Plate school will be given on June 3rd,  and a good programme is being prepared. To enable townspeople to take  in the concert several cars will be  run on the tramway before and after  the entertainment. The admission  price will be $1.00, including refreshments.  Hedley arid Copper Mountain are all  the talk on the outside, and yet there  "sirei only; tAvei niailsper week.   ;   ./', M  Welby's stage is running regularly  to Hedley three .times per < week, but  only carries the mail twice a week.  Chief, Engineer J.; H. Ivenuedy spent  several days of last week with the survey camp in this vicinity.  Ed. Burr who has been on Copper  Mountain for the past four keeks was  in town on Sunday.  What will be done with the rooter  at the ball games ? He is becoming  very much of a" nuisance and his remarks are not nice.  Keremeos will celebrate oh May 24th  A programme of Athletic sports and  and horse-racing will be provided and  a good time is expected.  Wouldu't it be a. good idea for the  Hedley base-ball team to tell themselves off into three shifts, to take turns  chasing Pinto's cattle .around the ranch  and thereby learn to run   bases!  W. A. McLean returned from Sinn-  lnerland on Sunday night and reports  wonderful improvements in that part  of the district, no less than 40,000 fruit  trees having been planted there this  season, and an excellent class of settlers have come in.  W.R.Hocking, assistant in the assay  office of the Daly Reduction Co.,. is  taking a couple of months off, and  started out on his wheel for Spence's  Bridge on Monday morning. Mrs.  Hocking and child, Miss Katie Frush  and Geo. Shelder went out by AVelby's  stage en route for Vernon, where an interesting event is expected to happen.  Mrs. Voigt ivas in town last week.  She and her son, who has just returned  from a military academy in Portland,  where he has been in attendance; accompanied Mr. Voigt as far as Keremeos. Mr. Voigt, Junior, shows that  school life is agreeing with him, and is  developing into a husky undergraduate  whose 17(5 lbs. of avoirdupois will  make him one of the heavyweights  for the scrimmages.  Dr. McEwen returned from Voigt's  Camp on Thursday and the Gazette  learned from him that the injuries sustained by Mr Shaw in the runaway  were not as serious as they were first  thought to be. Bones were broken in  the right ankle, which in itself is bad  enough, as it will mean the loss of two  months out of a busy season, and all  caused by a $10 cayeuse that it would  have been good business to have shot  at the first hitching.  Messrs D. Morrison and A. H. Turner who were here last Aveek en route  for Copper Mountain, Avill in all probability be engaged in Sunset Camp  for the summer. Mr. Morrison who  has had charge of the Emma mine in  the Boundary will have charge of the  work and Mr. Turner provincial assay-  erAvill determine the values as the  work proceeds. In extent of the ore  bodies, Copper Mountain is said to  even surpass the Boundary deposits  and the A'alues are claimed to he higher.  Messrs. Hugh Hunter and .Tanies  Wallace, of Princeton, were in Hedley  on Thursday last, taking Friday's stage  to Penticton. They were on their way  toKaniloops; to, appear in the .-Voigt?:-  Barnes case, which is being heard  there this week.  Reports are persistent that the C.P.R.  are preparing to build in from Spence's  Bridge and that contracts lurve been  let. A revival of activity in mining  properties about Aspen Grove is already being experienced as a consequence of the, confidence placed in the  genuineness of the reports.  This week cattle-men of. the Lower  Similkameen have been taking their  herds up the river to the summer  ranges, .above Princeton. The cattle  represented in the droves that went  up on Saturday and Sunday number-\  ing possibly about 2,500 head, were  from the herds of Mrs. Lowe, Mrs.  Daly, Manuel Barcello, F.

As generally happens, the last two or three  ���������days are crowded with work. Those  Avho require to have work done would  therefore do well to have their appointments made in time to permit of having it finished before lie leaves.  St. Mary's Guild wish to inform the  bachelors of Hedley that they are prepared to do mending &e. and otherwise contribute to their comfort by  keeping the socks darned and in good  order. This will remove any excuse  Avhich the bachelors may m-ge for  continuing the pernicious habit of  ���������"jumping" which every bachelor  understands. Prices will be reasonable. Bachelors also who may have  more fastidious ideas in the matter of  furnishing their apartments Avill find  that the Guild can not only make, valuable suggestions in that direction but  can also supply fancy articles for same  at reasonable prices.  During the past week   there   were  rumors that the Gt. Northern were being held up on their right of way by  sundry   ranchers in  the valley,  and  the stories were very pat as to  the  amounts asked.    Among them   was  that of Tom Gorman who was alleged  to have made   a  demand   of $15,000,  Mr. Gorman was asked by the Gazette,  concerning these rumors and replied  that no right of way agent nor anyone  else, representing the Great Northern  had spoken to him on the matter, and  consequently there was no authority  whatever for the statement as far as  he was concerned.    In all probability  if other alleged cases of hold-up were  investigated they would  be found to  have   as     little   foundation   as   this.  When the V. V.  & E.  bill is passed  which will set at rest all doubts as to  the rights of expropriation under the  V. V. & E. charter, there   will   be no  further difficulty in matters of this  kind for both the private individual  and the railway Avill  then be required  to settle on the basis of current values  for farm lands and town  lots,  as  the  case may be.
