At a meeting held'in the ;Mini8ter8':..ro6rh at the Parliament  Buildings at Victoria there were present Premier Sir Richard McBride, Mr. J. J. Warren, respecting the Kettle Valley Railway, Mr.  John Bate, from Aspen Grove, Isaac Eastwood, of Merritt, and Mr.  Alex Lucas.  The meeting was held for the purpose of discussing the question  of permitthg the Kettle Valley Railway to divert their route shown  on the plans filed with the Department and yet allow them to draw  their subsidy.  If this concession was granted to the Company Mr. Warren offered, and in behalf of the Company, agreed that he would put up  $15,000 to be spent in the development of a mining property in the  Aspen Grove district, the property to be chosen and the money to  be expended under the directions of a mining engineer to be chosen  by the Premier. If,' after this new development work had been  performed, the showings were sufficient to justify the building of  a railway Mr. Warren undertook to build a branch line to the district on a subsidy equal to that received for the building of the  main line. - ' ��� t  ln the event of the company refusing or neglecting to build the  Premier agreed to grant the same, subsidy to any private individual  or company, that woul<J build a branch, and Mr. Warren agreed that  the K.V.R. would give them connections with their main line,-and  all the usual shipping facilities of branch lines., The subsidies referred to are. we understand, $3,200 per mile from the Dominion  Government and $5000 per'mile, from the Provincial Government,  making a total of $8,200 per mile.  The schedule to chapter 64 of the Statutes of British Columbia,  1914, page 482, embodies the agreement between the Government  and the railway company respecting the construction of a branch  line into the Aspen Grove district. 'X        -    * ' ~  Briefly the arrangement can be summed up 'thus.���The Federal  and Provincial governments by promising legislative aid and large  'subsidies^ and the Kettle Valley Railway by a .heavy financial ex-,  pendfture offered tai" back" theirineans arid resources against the  enter prise, energy and activity of those,who would reap the first  benefits shpuid their prospecting and development work prove successful.       , >       '   '���*' v ��� ,<,-*'  Contrary to the view, o�� |;he '' Herald " which has a fondness for  linking mining development with .politics,- as, instanced by the  Aberdeen Mine road,controversy, thinking people assert that politics  should be shunned absolutely and completely wh-en enterprises' affecting therwelfare of the community as a whole are concerned. '  The Herald states that '\ ,     >' ',' -"��� 7  " some people who are interested in Aspen Grove approached  Mr. Lucas to ask him whether or not the Government intended  to press the agreement with the Kettle Valley Railway regarding the building of a branch line intolthat district/'  Will the paper, or Mr. R. J. Armstrong,  whom it quotes,  state  whether the developments to date justify the expenditure of thou-  san ds of dollars per mile for the building of a brapch railway line.  Has Mr, Armstrong, or others interested, developed-'-or had developed���a mining property to anything approaching'the stage where  the showings of copper justify the K.V.R.' contributing'up to  $15,000 to further develop such a .property.'   Would any railway  need " pressing" to-go on building a branch line in any1 place if it  could see sufficient tonnage to warrant the expenditure.  A raihoad is built and operated to,carry passengers and freight.  It is financed by people who expect profits and dividends, and its  financing is assisted by Governments only when the prospects are  moj e than usually brightrand some tangible protection is assured;;  If our contemporary would urge those who own mining properties  to endeavor to adopt definite, organized, and not haphazard, measures along development lines (instead of wasting time laboring  tin ough a column of space in a paltry effort to charge on hearsay  that Premier Bowser or Mr. Alex. Lucas are untruthful) it might  heip to hasten the development and prosperity of a.jnost promising  mineral bearing territory. Som�� politicians'declare that at election  times any person can get the government to1 build him anything  from a culvert to a trail,, road or bridge, but so faf the system has  not advanced to a stage where one can get a few mjies of- railway  built just for'the asking.        ��� '".'.'���.  ,     '����� . '   ' ' '���-!���' )���  - ,  .  WALTERS   SUPPORTS   "THE,  PLUGGER"'  ���  Mr. Macdonald Mr. Brewster's man Fridav, is the man ,who set  off to purify politics and he made his famous start., in Vancouver. He set the heather afire with .liis burning words of lofty  patriotism/ He wanted to live in the pure, white light of civic  righteousness that exalteth a nation. The idea of public reformation Iburned in. his great soul and so be gathered about  him choice spirits, like unto himself and set himself to the great  task.  A discard from the prairies became his chief evangelist; one  Scott who showed him how ts'make two(votes grow' where only  , one grew before, and whose methods were so thoroughly- fruitful  that Vancouver whose population had decreased say 25 per cent  since the previous election, found at election that'its voting'  strength had increased 50'per cent and Joseph Waiters supports him.  Some little votes getter that, where the fires of reform and  purity were burning so brightly. Today the apostle of reform  wears the well-earned title of. "The Plugger." * .and he  .,   V   .  '���~ ; ��� = :  stood on Joseph Walters'.platform.     From Seattle and abroad  cam9 citizens of the slums, and denizens of-the underworld,  to  steal the Canadian franchise.    Macdonald and  his coterie were  caught.    Decent citizens stand aghast at the revelation.and many  of the latter thinking of his own party have .repudiated him. and  he is announced by a local Liberal as  "Mr.  Future Attorney-  General."  Now after all this is proven beyond any doubt, after Macdonald  and the pure spirits of his party had paid the bills,   like a' boy  caugnt with the stolen apples on him,  he says   "the other boys  must have put them in my pocket."     This is the man whom Mr.  Brewster introduced as a "big man physically, MENTALLY and  MORALLY."   His associates in the art of reform, otherwise of  plugging admitted on oath their crime and the pay they received  per vote.......Think that over Mr. Elector!    Scott .and Pierce,  found the Seattle climate preferable to that of Victoria, but held  frequent telephone discussions with their chief. Gosden, one of  the tools, could not get the balance he claimed as due him' so, he  followed Macdonald to Victoria ind made life miserable for him  there. Under oath and supported by circumstances that made  his story appear true, Gosden said Macdonald had met him at a  point agreed upon at night and made a tardy and final payment of  $50, Thereupon Macdonald had him arrested for perjury.; Mac-  donald's evidence was at direct variance with that of Gosden and  others, but Gosden was not convicted. And so wherever Brewster  and Macdonald heve gone on their late tour, trusting that the  people may have had only a piecemeal story of the exposure, they  have made the booby talk that it was all a wicked Tory plot, a  Tory plot forsooth to defeat a Tory minister of Public Works.  The Grit idol of last February is discredited even at home.  Electors should remember that should the Liberals by any means  be elected this man Macdonald would undoubtedly be appointed  Attorney-General for the Province. Support for Joseph Walters  is support for M. A. Macdonald.  ��� ��� ��  Mr. B. G. Stewart, of Nicola, who delivered a forceful and  lengthy address from Mr. Walters platform at the Rex on Tuesday  night, is a farmer. Beyond saying that Mr. Bowser as an autocrat took credit for the Agricultural Credits Bill, fathered by Mr.  Lucas, he had'no criticisms,of any kind to make of even a solitary  clause.  ���      ��� -    ���  Every dollar contributed by citizens to the Red Cross Society's  funds for locaLprisoners of war will mean more pleasure-giving  and cheering necessaries and comforts for our soldier boys in exile.  the  Coldwater Hotel,  "It's Jill Comfort."
