The     ie  ducliou of freight rates promised   will  also be a boon to lhe country provided  the arrangement has not been   arrived  at by too great a sacrifice of the public  interest in   some  other  direction.    A  direct   line   from    the   coast   to   the,  liouudary   is   an   essential   feature   of  the dove.lop'ment,'of   the   counlrv,   but  we are assured by engineer's   that   this  could bo, done   as   well   bv   using   the  piesenl   C.

The  Kootenay people, have,   however, , been  demanding a competing, line, and it   is  desirable that il be secured,   providing  that lhe province is not called upon to  make loo great   sacrifices   by   way  of,1  subsidising a corp.oraliori In  so jure   it. I  The opening   of   the   far   north   by   a I  railway fiuin a Cr'ilish  Columbia   poit  is a   most,   creditable   enterpi ise,   and  one which, if successfully carried   out,  will    entitle    the.   government   to   the  support of lhe people.     Wp take  issue  however   with    thai    portion    of    the  policy which-proposes a railway to  ll.c  fiir north of   Vancouver   Inland.   ,The  mainland will nut, tolerate ill it part of  the policy, which appeals to be a wasle  of public   money.     Vancouver   Island  is most  favorably  situated   for  ocean  tiansporlalion, being   a   lung,   narrow  island   with   magnificent   harbor*.-.     If  the railway could  tinverse   the  centre  ol the island, away from   the .harbors,  and'open that up there wi.u'd be little  cause for objection, hut it is impossible !  to build a   railway   a'on^   the   rugged  mountain    range   which   occupies   the  intoi ior of the island, and so   the   line  will have to follow thccoa-il,  where,   it  i,.,, '���������s-n>.c !-���������->��������� il' eonipeto with shipping.'
