The Nelson Daily News contained a  full and interesting report of the  speeches on the occasion of the visit of  tlie Premier and Attorney-general to  that town last week.  :,'; In --going into .-the question of-the  railway policy the'preinier reviewed  the history of government aid "to railways , in Canada beginning with the  G. P. R. and -showed the enormous  burdens which the people had taken  on themselves and had nevertheless  beeh-beherited triefehy. He next"showed -what ������������������;������>'particular goyei-nrneiit in  B. C. in 1901 was prepared to give to  the Canadian Northern at a time when  that railway was regarded as a "joke.  With this prelude he took up theC.  N. R. bargain and said :    ,-���������  r   ; '    j   -  "Now, I hiive- answered ithe first  question that my negotiations are with  a reputable company. If their mileage  and business in eastern Canada were  not sufficient'evidence to any exitcting  critics, before me to-night what shall  he say in' answer to iny statements  when I tell him, that .the Canadian  '.Northernrepines' to British; Coluniliia  with a recommendation from all the  ���������provincial governments of Canada and  from Sir Wilfrid Laurier himseiL Also  they cometo iis*w;ith;;the,jendoi^nierit'  of my friend Mr. George Murray,  prinieri.nihster..'.of__'Np3%;iv...S^o.ti,v.,JaiKi^ji."  very intense grit he is, too, and as well  with that of Mr. Rutherfoi-d and Mr.  Scott, two -more liberals, apart - altogether from tlie heroic part that has  been played by the people of Manitoba  in the extension of the Canadian  Northern system under the leadership  of Mr-. Roblin. Now, the railway company with all their- mileage and the re-  putat.ion'they enjoy and stamped and  'backed by the leading public men of  Canada should certainly have some  consideration in the councils of the'  local' government of this province  when it is seeking to provide more  railway transportation for British Columbia. And so it is that we now .place  before the people of this country a  proposal that will make for the extension of the system to Vancouver  and Victoria and Barclay Sound within four years and that will make in  the same period for the development  of a tremendous extent of territory  contiguous development in parts of  British Columbia now served by the  C. P. R."  Speaking further of the benefits of  competitive lines and the result of  monopoly which has been to bottle up  and retard he thus outlined what his  policy would be in the matter of  branch lines, a matter which is of  intense interest to us here in the Si-  niilkauieen. In this connection he  said :  "Now for this line of road it is proposed that the government of British  Columbia should guarantee  the company's bonds to the extent of $35,000 a  mile, J: per cent 30-year bonds,   which  would make an obligation of $21,000,-  000 against the people of British Columbia.     But   against   this  endorsement what do we receive? We receive  a first  mortgage   on   the   line   from  Yellowhead to Barclay sound.   A first  mortage.   We come before everything  else,    In  addition we receive a covenant of the  whole and entire Canadian  Northern system to save this province  harmless from any responsibility by  reason of this endorsement.   A gentleman  connected with  one of the railway  companies said  to me the other-  day:   'What is  the good  of the Canadian  Northern  Bonds ;  their line is  mortgaged all the way through?' Well  so is every line on the continent mortgaged,   but lam  given to understand  that the fixed charges against the Canadian Northern line are probably less  per mile  than  any other  transcontinental  system, und in  addition to tho  tremeiiidous system   they are  ope.va-  ating,   the  Canadian  Northern is  en-  titied at this time to at least $19,000,-  000 of equities  in  their lands which  still remain   unsold, and for  payment  accruing  on lands sold in  connection  with their land subsidy from the dominion government   in  the northwest-  provinces.    So that   when   you   con-  Concluded on Page Four.  Tlie Kernel of the Opposition Policy is Contained in the First Two Sentences  (Victoria Colonist.)  The attitude  of the Opposition may  be thus described:  They fear what has never happened.  They regard as,,impossible what has  already been done.  They fear .that the credit of the  province, will be lowered by reason of  the proposed. Canadian . Northern  guarantee, although neither the credit  of the Dominion, noi- "yet that of  Manitoba, nor that of Saskatchewan  nor that of 'Alberta has been lowered  by the "railway guarantees, which  they gave, but on the contrary, in  every, case'the public������������������������������������red it was enhanced- thereby;, for *L-1��������� ��������� - .-riving of -.he  guarantees demonstratc-d faith bv the  people in- their own- i-c-imtry and ensured the company's development.  .  Thev fear that-tlie Canadian Northern -will-'default on its i interests, although it has never so defaulted, even  when ��������� it was only a<'small' local concern.' .   ,  They regai d as impossible the successful .flotation  of an enterprise upon  CHANGE  OF   V. W. & Y.   ROUTE  Ask Right to Build to Yellowhead  Pass  and through Coquihalla.  BELIAL-LIKE SOPHISTRY  At  the forthcoming session  of the  Provincial House, the V. AY. & Y. will  make    application   for   authority   to  clange the route  of its proposed line  to Fort George and   also for an  extension   of time iu which  work  must  be commenced  to May 15th, 1912, and  the.  time  of completion   to May 15th,  1915.   There will also be an application  for a subsidy  to the proposed  Second  Narrows  Bridge.    It is not  the intention   of   the.   company,   however,   to  abandon that part of   tlie line located  on tin- north shore of the inlet and up  to Howe Sound on the west, and down  to Deep Cove on the east,   it is understood  that, tine   of the reasons  for the  desired  change is that the  construe:  tion;of the line via Squamish   will be  too  costly owing to  the  heavy   rock j  work from point Atkinson to the head  of Howe Sound.    It is said   that this  part of the line alone would cost about  $100,000' per mile and would be nothing  more  than a succession of sharp  curves.  Authorisation  will be asked for the  Of the Saturday Sunset���������Bruce's Shifty  Advocacy and Extravagant  Unfairness  The kaleidoscopic changes of the  Vancouver Saturday Sunset' politically, will almost make one dizzy.  Immediately the government's railway policy was given out to the public  on the dissolution of the Legislature j  Bruce came out with a th-ai.-'e against  the policy, the Premier and almost all  his associates in the ministry, past  and present.-Tlie next week hi.1 claim-"  ed to have received new light and was'  THE PREMIER COMING  PREMIER  McBRIDE,   ATTORNEY-GENERAL   BOWSER   AND  SHATFORD TO ADDRESS ELECTORS IN HEDLEY,  FRIDAY, NOV. 12th AT 3 P. M.  L.   W.  which there is a first mortgage to secure a government guarantee, although hundreds of miles of railway  have been successfully financed and  have been and now are being constructed under just such an arrange-  in en t.  We do not say that our Opposition  friends are unpatriotic, because we do  not think they are; but we do say that  it is a very unfortunate thing that  party prejudice leads theni to take an  attitude towards a railway enterprise  in British Columbia, whereby they  reflectt upon the capabilities of the  province and decry those development  projects for which, until they were  taken up by the present ministry,  there was universal support.  The bridge  gang moved  on   Thurs  day last to the first crossing bridge  above the old Webster ferry, having  completed the third and second crossings in that order. About another  week or less will suffice to finish up  the. first crossing bridge, after which  a little remains to be done with the  bridge at Keremeos, and then work  will be through.  {construction  of a line; of railway  between Vancouver  and New Westminster cither  than   that  granted   in  the  original Y. W. <fc Y. charier and since  built,  and   now  in   the  hands of  the  Great   Northern   Railway.      Leaving  yi'\v  Westminster the  route  sought  will   cross  to   the  south   bank  of the  Fraser  river,   possibly by the  present  Provincial Government railway bridge  and will thence lie along the southern  bank in an easterly  and northerly  direction to the  vicinity of the Town of  Mope.     The  line  will  follow   up the  (.'oijiiihaila, River to   the divide,   aud  thence down the Coldwator River into  the Nicola. '   If will  either  touch or  pass close  to the town  of Nicola,  and  will  then   proceed  to   Kamloops  and  from there follow the easterly bank of  the North Thompson   river   to   Tete  .laune Cache,   or a yoint in that vicinity.     From that point connection will  be   made    with    Edmonton    via   the  authorised V. W. & Y.   branch from  the Willow River to Edmonton. From  Tete Jaime Cache the route  will run  along  the  south   fork   of  the   Fraser  River to a point between Fort George  and Fort McLeod ; thence by the most  feasible  route   to  Hazel ton, or some  other point on the Skeena River.  disposed to take it all back.    The Premier had done all  that- could  reasonably be expected of him. and all  that  it was possible   for   him -.to. do.    But  presto change.    Tlie  next  issue  suggested an   altogether  new   brief,   and  earns for Bruce the credit of being the  .most daring political Dugald Dalgetty  of modern times.   The right to change  an-opinion is one that Bruce can claim  along with all the rest of us.  .-is long-  as good and sufficient  reason  can   be  given for it.    In this case they do not  appear to lie so.  Bruce is proving a. rank  disappoiht-  _   me nt to his friends in Hedley.  -When  ~   he was here, he .seemed, to   be  full < of  faith: with confidence in   the  counti-y  , and all pertaining thereto, and" 110  iise  at all for pessimism.    By way of illustration, note the. ground he took  concerning pessimism oh the part of  past  general managers of Hediey's Nickel  Plate,    Yet here we find  him. joining  blinds with those who  "Fear what has 'never happened,  And regard ,'as  impossible    what  has already been done."  Lest he should think   we. accuse  him.  wrongfully, let him re-read his pessimistic knocking of the country along,  the   North   Thompson,   and    observe  that timorous   note   about    "keenest  apprehension"    which    he   says     thy  "financial- . aspect"     of   the    railway  policy.which he endorsed a   week   be-  , (ore "is arousing.''  But.it is the rank unfairness with  .v'hich the whole article fairly stinks  that is its most objectionable feature.  Fo be. dishonest in an argument is as  tad as to be dishonest in a matter of  lollars and cents, and where, pray, can  ���������ie find any honesty or fairness 01 that  mid type heading comparing the railway milage of the- C. N. R. in Manitoba  ���������.hd British Columbia.    While- a- mile  ��������� f railway in Manitoba can be thrown  up with plow and scraper for possibly  not more than $0000, in British Col-  1'inbia it may average $00,000 per mile.  I'hen as for paralleling routes, anyone  ' nows that in order to get competition at all in B. C. there must be parceling of the routes for there   is   110-  ��������� -here else for competitive railways to  o except side by side up and down the  * alleys���������a condition that does not ex-  t in a prairie country. Yet tlie  ! Sunset will dishonestly subtract the  distance from Kamloops to Hope from  the 000 miles which the C. N. R. is to  build under their .-greenient. and use  thefigure representing the difference  for the. purpose of making its comparison in miles with that built by the  C. N, R. in Manitoba instead of making the comparison in cost of construction as its editor should have done if  he had wanted to be honest about it.  These are merely specimens of the  multitude of vagaries to be found in  the railway pabulum of the Sunset  during the past three weeks.

BRANCH LINES  The application by the  Great  Northern interests for additional charter rights and   privileges  f or "their V. W. & Yrline is  significant,  and    is  doubtless  the  immediate     outcome     of    the  government's     railway   policy.  So far as  getting   the   right   to  build tlie V. W. & Y. up the Coquihalla is concerned,  the   Hill  interests  already  possess    that  right under the V. V. efc E. charter,   hut the V. V. & E.  charter  would not permit them to build  to  Kamloops nor   to  cover the  distance     between      Kamloops  and  Tete  Jaune  Cache, hence  the  advisability of giving that  scope to the V.'W. & Y.   'There  has been  for some  time a  general impression  in well informed circles that a friendly understanding    exists    between    the  Canadian Northern  and Great  Northern.     Evidently  Premier  McBride   either   thinks   so  .or  knows it   to be so   or he   would  not have originated the scheme  ot a joint  route  for these two  railways   down the  Coquihalla.  It is  further  claimed   that tlie  Hill  interests were  very much  in   favor  of tlie   Premiers suggestion,   but certain   ambitions  on  the   part   of    tlie   Canadian  Northern    stood   in    the   way.  Now   this   application   on   the  part of the  holders  of the V.  YV. & Y. charter, who of course  are   the Great Northern, looks  like a  contemplated  hostile invasion   of  Canadian   Northern  territory  and   that is not often  supposed   to betoken   the existence of  any very  friendly relation.    If  it  is  not  being  done  with   hostile intent in  pique at  the Canadian  Northern's rejection of  the scheme  for a joint  route   down    the    Coquihalla,  then  there must be some other  explanation,  and a  clew  to  it  may  possibly  be found  in the  Premier's  statement in his Nel-  and Revelstoke speeches. Such  an agreement, as that, whereby  the province would in all rjroba-  bility not be out a cent, would  be infinitely better than John  Oliver's hare-brained policy to  compel the province to pay out  over ten millions of actual  cash to build the road; as advocated by some people equally  as wild and irresponsible as  John himself. The'.province  might in the absence of any  other solution be justified in  going in for such a scheme; but  only in the absence of all others  and wholly as a last .resort.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  Premier McBride believes in  spending the people's money  for the people's immediate benefit, not in hoarding-it up in unexpended surpluses,���������a .temptation'" for extravagance on the  part of those coming after . us.  Those who-.believe with hint  will give their support to his  candidates.  The immediate construction  of the Canadian-Northern front  the Yellowhead Pass to. Vancouver, and of the Kettle Valley  from Midway to Nicola provided  for in the. government's railway  always  Princi'fon   has for  years   been   living  with eyes turned wholly to the future.  Now the   present;  has   more   to   take  their attention  and henceforth there  will ho a diU'ei-enl-talc to'tell.  The. railway,, bridgi-mien were busy  getting the structure ready to allow  the rails to he laid across on to the  station yard. But this was not tlie  best evidence to be seen of the quickening referred to. The work which an  outside corporation does for a town is  nothing in point of, value compared  with   what a town   will do for  itself.  It was up 011 the hill where the big  tipple is going in at the coal mine and  the railway are grading a spur to it  that an earnest of the. future, and  what that future holds irr store is best  obtained.     ;   .  Tn addition to erection of the tipple  and ore bunkers, the V. F. M. Co. are  installing extensive hoisting machinery  and new faces are seen about the  works, indicating that with increased  output, skilled labor is required to  direct it. Mr. E. Bar-r Hall is looking  after the installation of machinery,  and Mr. Graham an experienced coal  miner from Nanaimo is getting the  mine in shape for extraction of the  black diamonds. . Already the Great  Northern engines are using the coal in  their furna.ces, and are reported to be  well satisfied with it.  In addition also the starting.of work  on Robert Stevenson's property:down  the river is bringing.men in, among  whom we noticed some Hedley miners.  Then there is the McDougall prop-?  erty on One; Mile creek on which a  bond has been taken and , is going  through. A gang of men is being put  on there too -and. another 'railway spin-  is shortly to go in to enable; shipments  to be made to the outside.'  Altogether it is creating a wholly  difierent atmosphere about the  place that is readily noticeable to  parties who go there and can compare  it with'-.-former things. This all helps  l the valley and furnishes additional re-  E  BANK OF  1909  ��������� ���������   ..  73 Years in.Busines,  Have You a  Bank Aceouut?

Proprietor  The steam ' compressor which was  up at the Nickel Plate mine was  brought down to Hedley last week  and will form part of the auxiliary  steam plant being got ready for the  development programme which has  been planned for the coming winter.  Owing: to~ several "'boggy- places on the.  way.to, the. new Twenty-mile wapon  road caused by the excessive rains of  thepast' fortnight^ it was -considered"  advisable to rise the old Nickel Plate  Penticton road, and haul around by  Keremeos.  Peter Scott,   the original  owner  of  the Kingston mine spent a few days  in town  last    week.    He     has    been j  living in England lately, showing that  he has left the prospecting stage  behind and can enjoy the fruits of some  of his luckier locations.    He   still has  valuable locations in  the camp.    The  Toro'n to and Galena; claims in particular-are uvos t promising claims, and it  is hoped he will soon make some  turn  which will result in ttheir joining  the  class of working niines.  The horses of the Similkameen are  now making their acquaintance with  the irom horse .and.-until they have  become more familiar with it a few of  them will doubtless come to grief.  The first case - was a, mare belonging  to the Indian Tiiinas. This beast and  a big black yearling filly were grazing  down on Smelter flat near the railway  crossing when a work train came along.  The beast got frightened and ran into  a bunch of wire fencing which had  been left along side M. K. Rodgers'  fence. In the collision with the wire  the beast had fallen on its-head and  broke its neck. A somewhat remarkable feature of the incident and one  whicli goes to show the affection which  the lower animals have for each other  was seen in the lonely vigil maintained by the black colt beside the deail  carcass, for more than twenty-four  hours, refusing to be driven oft' until  it was caught and led away by its-  owner.  Robert Stevenson, the veteran prospector ard father of the Siniilkaiiieen,  was in    town  last week  on   his  way  home from Spokane where he completed organization of the Princeton Copper   Co.   to   work  a   valuable  claim  which Mr.   Stevenson  had    on Darcy  mountain about five miles down the  river from Princeton.   The   company  which has just been organized  is  virtually a close  corporation,   but they  have lots of-money and a good property and   should   make   things    lively.  Mr. Stevenson's many friends  in  the  Similkameen will rejoice at his  good  fortune, for with one accord they will  say that no one in the district is more  deserving   of success.    On   Saturday  last he put a gang of men  to  work,  and it is  their intention  to work all  winter, taking out ore for the Granbv  smelter.   The   property   is   within   a  few feet of the railway track and the  V. V. & E. are going   to   give   him a  spur right away.  '     In spite of the fact that the result of  j the Liberal   Conservative   convention  | for Siiiiilkaineeii riding was  regarded  jas a foregone conclusion, with no suggestion of 'any-other candidate in sight  to swell tlie):gathering. by a muster .of  his supporters, there'  was a   good  attendance .at: Keremeos   on   Thursday  last, the riding  being represented by  delegates froirias far- west as  Princeton and as far- east as Camp McKinney  Rock Mountain and Penticton;  while  Hedley, Keremeos.   Olalla   and   other  nearby   points   helped   to    swell   the  gatheiing.  Mr. J. J. Armstrong of Keremeos  Station occupied the chair, and Dr. R.  13. White secretaiy of the Llectoial  executive was -secretaiy of the meeting.  Mr. Shatford was nominated hy Air.  Henry Nicholson, of Camp McKinney  and seconded by M. Frank Rich tor of  Keremeos. No other names were,  proposed, which shortened up the  work of the convention, and a motion  that the nominations be closed left the  convention free to proceed with other  business. A committee was appointed  to draft resolution of confidence in  the government and in Mr. Shatford  as the Representative of the district.  This committee consisted of Henry  Niclolson, Dr. McKwen, J. A. Brown  and Dr White.  A. Megraw was requested to address  the meeting on the railway policy and  other public questions and complied,  briefly outlining the main features of  the government's railway   policy and  iv/irig  ���������  X  t  Our Profits On  BoOtS and  from the 15th to the End of October  2,0% Discount  On Every Pair of Shoes in the Store  ���������  O  X  X  ���������  i  Men's, Women's and  Children's  Shatfords Ltd.  the benefits that would follow to the  province and this district in particular  by carrying it but. He also warned  the meeting against the-.dangers of  over confidence, and predicted a decisive victory for Mr. Shatford on election day, urging upon local committees  the desirability of seeing that the majority-be laa overwhelming one.  Mr. Shatford was unable himself to  attend the convention on account of  the tour he was taking over the riding  and a short tiip which he was obliged  to take to the coast. He has now been  over the greater portion of the riding  and the assurances.of satisfaction with  his course which he met all over the  riding from Conservatives and Liberals alike, and the, promises of support  from.altogether unexpected quarters,  made it look as if an opposition candidate would be fortunate if'.ho managed to save his deposit.  The resolution drafted-by the. committee and unanimously carried by  the meeting was as follows:  We the Liberal: Conservatives of the  Siiiiilkaiiiee.n District in Convention  assembled hereby resolve that we  heartily endorse the platform of the  government of the,Hon. Richard McBride; are in thorough accord with  his Railway policy and that we have  implicit confidence iu our present  representative, Mr. L.

The steep hills and rugged mountains of the Klondike region give  rise to numberless 6mall streams, which become from time to time  with the melting of the -snows���������the cloudbursts and heavy rains b  which  the country is subject���������raging torrents.  The grinding of the glaciers and the erosion of there turbulent  streams bring down rocks, sand and gravel from the mountain depths  and fastnesses where man has never yet penetrated.  In a region where ledges of Gold-bearing Quartz are a prominent  feature in (he formation, it is natural that these forces of Nature should  tear away quantities of exceedingly rich material.  This process has been going on for ages. The hidden stores of  Gold away in  the hills arc inexhaustible.  The rush of the torrents is so impetuous that even boulders cf  considerable size are borne in their course, and only when Nature  has spent herself do they find a resting pi-ice.  The broad creeks���������the wider reaches cf the rive:���������quiet tho  stream, and the Gold, in the form of nuggets, grains end flakes,  rapidly sctlles. Gold is very heavy���������heavier linn the rock itself, and  once it finds a resting place, 6i'fts down through the light surface mud  and sand until, by force of Gravity, it reaches bed rock.  Where the courses of streams have been changed, the richest Placer  Mines arc found in their old beds. But in the larger, constant streams,  these rich deposits arc beyond the reach of merely humin agencies.  It remains for the Gold Dredge���������following the heavy nuggets  and particles of Gold down through the overlying stmta in the bars  and benchea of the river, to recover these stores of Gold from the  treasure-house of Nature.  The long arms of the Dredge, with their endless chains of bucket  scoops, search down, down���������through sixty feet of water, sand and  gravel, if need be���������until the Gold sediment, and finally bed rock itself.  pure Gold���������the  hoarded  often overlaid with an actual coverlet o  accumulation of centuries���������is reached.  The Gold Dredge brings ut this material in wholesale- quantities  ���������treats it with scientific -accuracy to save the finest particles of  value���������separates the dross���������and for the first time lays bare to the hand  of   r.ian  this Virgin Gold.  While personally present or. our property at Stewart River,  Yukon Territory, Klondike, September 1st, I saw with my own  eyes a clean-up from our first and smaller dredge, netting $517.50,  and this was preceded only a few days by another clean-up from  the same dredge amounting to $1283.86 in Gold. I saw this Gold,  gathered from the gold-saving tables of our Dredge, moulded into  bullion���������a solid bar of Gold.  - With such results in sight, we are bending every effort to get twenty  ot these mammoth Dredges at work on our property. This summer,  our second dredge went on���������larger and stronger than the first���������and is  already at work.  We control by direct lease from the Canadian Government, One  Hundred and Five (105), miles of Dredgable Gravel on the Stewart  River, eighty miles from Dawson City, in the Klondike. We have  tested the gravel thoroughly with Drills, and it has been proven rich  throughout. As a matter of fact, the site of our holdings was recognized,  even before the Gold Rush in 1698, to be rich in Gold���������it is a  matter of public record that the Gold is there���������but so located as to be  difficult to obtain by any hand method. And Fifty dredges could  not exhaust this area in a Hundred years.  With a proposition so rich, the payment of dividends and the  continued work of development can easily go hand in hand.  To hurry this work of development now, we are marketing Treasury Stock in our Company. Three thousand stockholders, many of  thc.ii well-known in the Canadian country, arc already on our books.

What did good  old Manitoba do  to  get  competitive  railways?   In 10J1 that little province  with a handful of people owning no  crown lands, because  they  belong  to  Ottawa;   owning  no   timber,  because  there is no timber- there, and  possessing no  mines,   because there are no  mines in Manitoba, in order to secure  competitive railways that little  handful of people,   having nothing  but    a  ,, revenue of $700,000 a year to fall back  on, raised by direct taxation, what did  they do? they  guaranteed   the  bonds  of the Canadian "Noithern   system   to  the extent of $15,000,000, and they have  never had   to  put  up a penny.    But  they  have  increased   enormously    in  wealth.    The  farmer    has  more,   the  rancher and the wage earner are much  better   oft',    If  Manitoba,   having no  crown lands, no timber, no  mines, no  seaports, no sea coast, guaranteed $15,  '*"001),000 for   the .Canadian   Northern,  why should  this rich  and  wonderful  province of ours,owiiiiig.   as   it   does,  hundreds of millions of acres of   land,  mines, timber and   fisheries   of   enormous wealth, hesitate to guarantee the  bonds of that system  for $21,000,000?  Anyone who desires   to   be   fair and  who would study  the  question   must  agree with rue that, compared with the  people of Manitoba,   where so   much  good lias resulted for the people,   the  expense of-British Colum nia guaran teeing thi' security of the  Canadian Northern sys-fem is Uiita.n indifferent matter indeed.    If we had to takeover the  line, of the  Canadian  Northern  from  the Yellinvhead'-pass'to the coa'st,"with'.  a 5-10 of 1   per cent-grade, which that  company will have, we. could get every  dollar hack  in a trice  from either the  C.

Tlie further safeguards imposed  were next taken rip including the  stipulation against employm������rit of  Asiatic labor in construction of the  road and compelling the C. N. R. to  deposit a bond for $500,000 with the  province as security of their good  faith in the undertaking and compelling thorn also to pay the standard  wages obtaining- in the province for  similar work.  .^^fe^^fe^-A^^A^^^^^M I  KEEP YOUR EYE ON  CAMP  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp  in Canada.

United Wireless Booming  IN* ALBERTA  "Contrast for a moment, if you will,  the   bargain  we are making with the  Canadian  Northern  with that which  Mr*. Rutherford has made in Alberta.  Do you  know Alberta,   the bold little  province,   she is  only four  years old,  yet rip to date shehasgiraranteed$29,-  000,000 of bonds in  order  to   secure  competitive railways. Yet Alberta has  not an  acre of land ;  it is all  held  in  Ottawa. Some of us may think Alberta  has been a little trio quick, but I hardly expect that criticism   is   in   good  place; wo -must  remember   that the  physical-  condition   of   that country  differs  niatariallv from ours, and one  can easily see wny a large and lavish  bonus or guarantee may  be justified,  while in  British Columbia  we should  go more easily and cautiously.    Some  go the  length of saying  that there is  no    excuse   for   guarantees   on    the  prairies.     Even if  that were so,  with  the configuration   of country we have  to deal with, surely there would be an  abundance of excuse for subventions  in British  Columbia by  way of guarantee.     But here is British Columbia,  so much larger, richer and more full of  resources than Alberta ready and willing  to give  $21,000,000 guarantee for  another  transcontinental line,   while  right  at our doors we  have Alberta,  only four years  old,  already   loaded  with $29,000,000 for   subventions for  compotivc  railway systems.     Where  is  the Liberal  who  is fair to himself,  who is consistent,   who could say one  word of condemnation of that policy  of my government,   if he has a single,  word of praise for the position of Mr.  Scott and Mr. Rutherford in Alberta  and Saskatchewan?

In the Nelson Daily News' report of  the meeting of the Canadian   Railway  Commission held at Nelson last week  the   following     paragraphs     appear.  "The second application was the complaint of the board of trade of Greenwood and of Donald O. Mackay, tilleg-  ing unauthorized  connection at Danville, Midway and Myncaster, also  the  unauthorized deviation of the authorized line; discrimination  in   the  matter  of tolld between Princeton  and  Rossland; and application for an  order to  prohibit the operation of a branch line  at or near Myncaster.  "J. P. McLeod appeared for the complainants and asked that the application be set over-, as an important witness was not available. The commission ordered the application to stand  over until the next session in Nelson."  These show that Greenwood has a  crow to pick with the Great Northern  Railway because of failure of the  Great Northern to run the branch up  from Midway to Greenwood.
