Array VI  AND   BOUNDARY   MINING  JOURNAL.  ^^>��iAl^M^:  Tenth Year.  PHOENIX, -BRITISH COLUMBIA.  SATURDAY. OCTOBER 30, 1909  No. 49  We have just received a shipment of  COLES'   FAMOUS   HEATERS  These   Heaters are   air-tight,  and  Insure  Perfect  Comfort these cool  evenings.    '    .    '    .. ..'.    .   / ....  We have eight different varieties of  these Stoves, ranging in price from  $4.50 to $18  TO COMMENCE  IMMEDIATELY  On Railway to 'Wellington Camp  Expected to Be Completed by  February 1st  'PHONE NO. 9-*  SEE WINDOW  HUNTERKENDRICK CO.,LTD.  MORRIN, THOMPSON & CO.  HEATING  WE HAVE A COMPLETE  STOCK  One of the most important announcements to Phoenix which has been  given out for some time was made  public this week, when it was made  known that' the Canadian Pacific railway will immediately commence the  construction of a branch line from  Phoenix to Wellington camp, active  work on which will begin next  week by W. P. Tierney & Co , C.P.R.  railway contractors.  The stretch of railway to be built ai  once will be the first three miles of the  proposed line to Central camp, a distance of twelve miles, which was surveyed by H. B. Walkem, C.P.R engineer, and a corps of assistants during  the early summer It is being constructed primarily to tap the group of  mineral claims in Wellington camp,  known as the Jackpot, purchased by  the British Columbia Copper company  last year, where a large amount of ore  is now ready for shipment, but will  probably be an incentive for active de  velopment work on a number of prospective mines in the  promising  camp.  W. P. Tierney and George Tierney,  the railway contractors, arrived in Phoenix on Thursday evening and stated  that work on the new C.P.R. branch  would be slarted immediately and  rushed to completion with the intention of having it ready for shipping ore  by first of February.  The route of the railway is rough  and considerable filling in and cutting  will be required. The contractors  state that as soon as they have their  camps ready they will employ from  400 to 500 men and will need a considerable number of both bridgemen  and rockmen.  . Messrs. Tierney went to Wellington  Ij-camp-ycatcpdajiinioi-niag and purpose  locating their camps near the. .Winnipeg mine. The route for the construction of die railway is already cross-sec  tioneel, so that little delay will be ex  perienced  in  getting   to  work  on  the  grading.  The lackpot property, which will be  the important shipper over the railway,  promises to be one of the big copper  producers of the Boundary. The Brit  ish Coinmoia Copper company, since  acquiring the property have done a  large amount of development work  under the superintendency of Harry  Johns. Three tunnels have been  driven and not only has a large area of  ore been blocked out but the ore  carries much better values than that of  other Boundary producers. Some 20  men are at present employed at the  Jackpot and several thousand tons of  ore are already on the dump ready for  shipment. The ore from the Jackpot  will be treated at the British Columbia  Copper smelter, which is shortly to  increase its capacity by 25 per cent, in  anticipation of handling ores from the  Dominion mines as well.  The immediate construction of the  line to Wellington camp should tend to  greatly stimulate the general activity  round Phoenix for the winter and will  be a boon to merchants and other  business men, the construction camps  being   within a few   minutes'   walk   of  the city.  Never were the indications for a  real merry Christmas in Phoenix more  propitious than they are today. It is  estimated that by December over 1300  men will be employed in mining and  railway construction within close proximity and in the city.  GRANBY UNIQUE AS  A COPPER PRODUCER  Its Success Achieved Through  Engineering Ability  The enterprise of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power  Co. is unique among American Copper  producers. It is .reriiarkaole in that  the company has achieved success  where a smaller degree of engineering  ability would probably have met with  failure. The history of the venture  shows that the margin of chances in  favor of the results that have been se  cured were small, and it is probably  true that the high prices for copper  which prevailed for some time before  the panic of 1907 contributed as much  as any other influence to the attainment of the firm position which the  company now.apparently occupies. In  order to earn suitable,, dividends upon  the outstanding capital stock, which, at  its face value, represents very closely  the money investment revealed, by the  company's statements, a good rate for  copper is necessary, but by reason of  the fact that the company for several  years enjoyed very high rates for the  red metal, it was so able to equip the  enterprise as to now make 13 cent  copper seem almost- bounteous. It  may be fair to say that floating capital  would never have done for this enterprise under less advantageous conditions what it washable to do for itself  under the encouragement of 'a period  of pronounced prosperity.  The Granby mines of British Columbia are similar .jo what are now  spoken of as the low-cost porphyries  in this country, in'that the values are  highly disseminated and the grades of  the ores very low. They are dissimilar  in that the crude product is.directly  smelted, instead of being concentrated  in large mills, as at Garfield and Ely.  The self fluxing character of the ores is  a tremendous advantage. The Granby  is doing what the First National Copper company, recently discussed in  this column, is undertaking to do in  California. It is relying upon the gold  and silver content of the ores to make  the bulk production of copper from  smelting profitable, and it may be  tioted that the variations in its profits  account for several years past have  Deen largely produced by the changes  in the amount of gold and silver re-  ,sx>v.exed^_Jrhis^ciL��co����e. is. a���honk-  keeper's, statement, nieant to deal with  the gold and silver, as offsets against  . the cost of producing copper, which  I could not be produced at a profit by  itself, except at high prices in the bullion market.���Mining Record.  Boundary Mining Notes  Granby is the second largest smelter  in the world,- the largest being located  at Anaconda, Mont;;  The drop-in Granby's ore shipments  this week is the result of a holiday at  the'rhine on  Thanksgiving.  The grading for the spur to: the  Phoenix Amalgamated was completed  this week and is now ready for the  steel.       ���'���.������-"'"' "   ��� '��� '- t  A. B. W; Hodges, local manager of  the.Granby company, returned a few  days ago ftpm New York, where he  Had been :-arttending a meeting of the  company.  The ore shipments from the Snow-  shoe mine to Trail smelter took another jump this week* and is the  largest seven days'; tonnage shipped  during the past two years,; representing  about 725 tons per dayl���.���."'  The Victoria shaft of the Granby  mine is temporarily out of commission  as the result of an accident on Tuesday. The regular tonnage from, the  mine, however, is being maintained by  extra shipments from No. 2 tunnel.  Newman Erb, presidentof the British  Columbia Copper company, has been  elected a director and vice-president  of the New Dominion Copper company. F. L. Sommer, vice president  of former company, has been elected a  director of the latter company.  The British Columbia Copper company is about to make a shipment of  500 tons of test ore from its v Jackpot  property in Wellington camp. The  ore will be teamed to the C^.R. spur  at the Winnipeg mine, a.contract for  which will be let in the course of a few  days.  The Granby smelter, with seven furnaces in blast, treated 25,86*6 tons of  ore this week, which exceeds last  week's treatment by 26��ov>tons and  constitutes a record. Manager Hodges  was at Fernie this week arranging for  an increase in coke supply to meet the  demands of the enlarged smelter.  The British Columbia Copper company, in securing its interest in the  New Dominion Copper company made  payments partially in stock and partially in cash. In the treasury of the  British _Cplu mbia.(ioriper-��=oo*ipan-y~cvro  now approximately 132,000 shares of  New Dominion stock, for which the  British Columbia company gave treasury stock to the amount of 80,000  shares and the balance in cash. The  bonds of the New Dominion company  played no part in the transaction.  PRICES FROM  TO  Yo�� Will be Lose* if YOU  DO NOT EXAMINE OUR  LINE BEFORE  PURCHASING  ERNEST  MILLER, CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE  Successful Harvest Home  The harvest home supper and entertainment in the Methodist church  on Thursday passed off very success  fully. Rev. Mr. Williamson of Van  couver, general secretary of the provincial Sunday school association, was  present and delivered a splendid address on the work of the association.  PROMINENT CABINET  MINISTERS RESIGN  Disagree With Government's  ' Railway Policy  Hon. R. G. Tatlow, finance minister, and Hon. F. J Fulton, minister of  lands, have handed in their resignations in t^e provincial cabinet to  Premier McBride. The retiring, ministers are dissatisfied with the railway  policy of the government, Mr. Tatlow  claiming that the assistance promised  is too great, while Mr. Fulton declares  that the Canadian Northern would  have to build to the coast, anyway,  and that the agreement was unnecessary.  Premier McBride, in an interview,  said that Messrs. Fulton and Tatlow  have handed in their resignations and  they have been accepted. Captain  Tatlow's reason for withdrawing is his  disagreeme- t with him (the premier)  on the quantity and amount of assistance which it is proposed the government shall give the Canadian Northern.  In all other matters he is in hearty  accord with the government.  Mr. Fulton's position is summed up  in the statement tharhe pledged him-,  self six years since to the people  of British Columbia to consider any  fair and reasonable proposition to be  made to the government for railway  construction in the province, and when  the agreement between the government  and the railways came up and was  agreed to, he had to resign. (Inferen-  tially there was no other course for  him to follow.)  Premier McBride further stated that  as to the agreement between the government and the Canadian Northern  had only been reached after careful  consideration, that he would stand or  fall by what, he had promised the  people in regard to railway construction.  The New Dominion  The New Dominion Copper company on Thursday issued checks to all  unpaid miners of the former Dominion  company, the money involved being  about $20,000.  Asked yesterday as to the resumption  of operations, John Seward, manager  for the New Dominion, staled that  operations would commence as soon  as preliminary work is completed,  which would be a matter of but a  short time.  HOTEL LICENSE FEE  TO BE RAISED TO $650  Bylaw, To That kffect Being  Prepared by City Clerk  Aldermen A. Hillier, D. Deane, J.  G. McKeownand G; W.- Rogers were  present at the regular meeting of the  city council ori Wednesday evening,  Mr. Rogers presiding as acting mayor.  The important, matter discussed- by  the aldermen;.was the proposed raising  of the license of cityhotels. On motion  of Aldermen Hillier arid -.Deane the  clerk was instructed to .draw up a bylaw amending the present trades license  bylaw, making the annual license fee  of hotels $650 each, such hotels to  consist of not less than thirty furnished  rooms for guests. The bylaw will receive its first reading at the.next meeting of the city council.  A communication from Attorney  General Bowser informed the council  that on their recommendation V. M.  Sherbino had been appointed a member of the police and license commissioners to succeed O. N. Galer.  The clerk was instructed to write the  Government Agent re the dangerous  condition of a bridge on Victoria  avenue and request his immediate attention.  The sale of the city debentures was  further discussed, but no satisfactory  offer has as yet been made.  ConiIh Kale Conlot  The management of Phoenix opera  house has secured for an engagement  of one night, Thursday, Nov. 18, Miss  Jeanne Russell and her metropolitan  company in Ethel Barrymore's London  and New York success "Cousin Kate."  The company have been secured by  Brandon Bros, to-open their new  theatre in Lethbridge, which is said to  be the finest between Winnipeg and  Vancouver, and the company will play  only a few towns between Lethbridge  and Spokane."-'-!- .  r :> ;    ��� ,  Cousin Kate is one of the recognized metropolitan successes, written  specialty for Miss Ethel Barrymore,  'and is--the play which? made Miss  Barrymore famous as al star, having a  run of 350 nights in London and 300  in New York with phenomenal success.  Miss Jeanne Russell, who is now  starring in the piece, is the legitimate  and jy.orthy^sucr^ss6r_of__MissiBarry^  more, and is surrounded by a New  York cast of quite exceptional ability.  The play is a delightful English society  comedy with a beautiful and touching  story.  The management has given it a  scenic production superior, they claim,  to anything ever seen here, and in  order that no detail might be marred  they are carrying their own orchestra,  and their musical program is an extra  feature of the evening. The engagement without doubt will be one of the  most pretentious dramatic offerings  ever seen in the Boundary, and should  receive most liberal consideration, for  iin the success of Cousin Kate lives the  hope of securing other recognized attractions for the city.  MILLER IS  NOMINATED  By Conservative Convention Yesterday  As Party Standard-Bearer in  Grand Forks Riding  At the nominating convention of the  Conservatives of Grand Forks aiding  held yesterday in Grand Forks, Ernest-  iMiller was unanimously chosen as  candidate.>5^^Jo other riame was submitted. ^  The convention was held eaily in  the afternoon, Grand Forks being represented by 18 delegates, Phoenix,;  14, Cascade, 2, Carson, 2, and Bannock, 2.

JOHN MclNNIS, SOCIALIST CANDIDATE  PRINCETON'S COMING  COPPER PRODUCER  Strike on Rio Tin to Treadwell  Word was received here yesterday  that a strike of splendid ore had been  l.made on the Rio Tinto-Treadwell  property, near Curlew, Wash., some  ���twelve miles south of Phoenix. A  tunnel is at present being driven to  crosscut several ledges, but the strike  at about 200 feet has been made before the first ledge has been reached,  and as a result local shareholders are  quite enthusiastic as to the future of  the mine.  The Political Pot  The war paint of a brisk contest is  already in evidence. ". T  The Socialist party has nominated  five candidates in Vancouver "city;' x  It is stated that Premier "McBride  will be a candidate in Cariboo this  election.  Mayor C.rS. Douglas has entered  the fight in Vancouver for the Conservative party.  i The first gun in the local contest in  Phoenix is being fired by John Mc-  Innis, Socialist, as we go to press.  The Socialists of Greenwood riding  nominated George Heatherton as their  candidate for the legislature at a meeting on Wednesday evening:  Neil McCallum, Scott Galloway and  A. Lequime of Grand Forks were in  caucus with local Liberals on Wednesday evening./ The nominating con  vention of Liberals in this constituency  will be held in Grand Forks on Monday next.  riciiiJw'MCBtixie^wliiroperrhis" campaign at Kamloops with Hon.

Jackson of Midway,  rancher, will be the standard bearer of  the Conservative party in Greenwood  riding in the present contest. The  nominating convention of Conserva-.  tives in Greenwood on Wednesday  selected him on the first ballot.  Coast despatches state Premier McBride refused to allow John Oliver,  Liberal kader, to see the railway agreement between him aud the Canadian  Northern railway company, except  under pledge of secrecy. Mr. Oliver  refused to give such pledge and demanded both he and the people of  British Columbia were entitled to see  the agreement and know all about it  as a matter of right.  Hon. Richard McBride, junior, son  and heir of British Columbia's premier,  arrived at Victoria on Monday. He  will not take part in the present campaign, other than to declare himself  for "home rule."���Congratulations.  Test Shipment Will Be Made  to Granby Smelter  Robt. Stevenson of Princeton, one of  the oldest and best known prospectors  in British Columbia, having been interested in mining in this province for  49 years, was a visitor in Phoenix yesterday and commented on the many  changes here since his last visit nine  years ago.  Mr. Stevenson was in the Boundary  for   the   purpose   of   conferring   with  Granby officials re smelting  ore  from  the Princeton Mining company's prop  erty,  of which   he  is   manager.    The  property is located five miles   this side  of Princeton, about 250 feet  from   the  V. V. & ft. track, and at an elevation  of' 40 feet, so that it is admirably  situated     lor   shipping     purposes.      Mr.  Stevenson terms   it  a   high class low-  grade proposition, the bulk of the ore  being of low grade but self-fluxing, and  samples from stringers having  assayed  25 per cent copper  besides   gold   and  silver values.    A small force is   operating the mine at  present, and   a   200-  ton ore bin will shortly he constructed.  Mr. Stevenson has arranged to   ship a  car of test ore to the Granby   smelter  m the course of a few weeks.  With the advent of the railway Mr.  Stevenson looks for much activity  among copper properties in that dis  trict, but intends to have the honor ol  making the fust shipment of ore. The  first shipment of coal from Princeton  was maJe last week when the Vermillion Coal company shipped three carloads to the Medley Gold Mining Co.  on which the latter will experiment.  !fl Oct 30, 'oo    ru  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE. a  The fotlowum table gives the ore shipments of Boundary mines tor   190a,  ] 1903. 1904,   1905,   1906.  1907, 1908 aud 1909, as reported to the Phoenix I'ioneer���  - Mink. 1901       190*       1905 1904       1905  J Granby Mines... 231,762 309,858 393.7'8 549.703 653,889  -���Snowshoe       1,731    20,800   71.212  -....

(Applause.) .,;" ���  The leader of the opposition went  on to sav that he would refer to  some of the domes of the McBride  Kovernmcnt bv war of clearmg tho  Krouird. It was. a boast of the Conservatives that thev had found the  treasury depleted and the province  bankrupt, and that they had chanced  conditions to one in which there was  a surplus of a million and a muarter.  But the McBride jrovcrnment. did not  create the' magnificent forests, did  not deposit the minerals, did not un-  dcrla- the sandstone with coal. The  Almighty- had done this, and all the  Conservatives had . done was^ collect  toll from those who were trying to  make, use.of these, and by so doin  augment the revenue.  A glance at the estimate of revenue  presented in 1907 and the actual results of the financial year ending  June-30th, 1908, would show whether  the riiinister of finance was such a  marvel of ability. The revenue he  had estimated at $3,291,476:66���lie  got right down to cents���whereas it  was actually $5,931,372, a trifling  matter of eighty per cent from the  estimate. There were lots of better  guessing to be seen. From timber  lands and royalties a revenue of  $750,000 , was estimated; the actual  receipts were $2,258,566, a mere  bagatelle of being within .300 per  cent of guessing right. This was  what was called financial ability.  Land sales were to realize $300,000;  they ' produced $588,000; again the  minister bad guessed within 80 per  cent..  The lands department bad shown  its ability also. Vancouver had lost  thousands of dollars and suffered  great loss in order to force street  crossings over the C. P. R. tracks.  Yet with that example before them  the government and legislature, in  spite of power given the lieutenant-  governor in council, had ratified a  contract which placed Prince Rupert  in the position that in four miles and  a half of water front owned bv the  railway company there were only two  streets projected to run to the water  ]���and even, then only by'..overhead  .bridges to be built by the province.  ' Waste of money,was no new story  with the government. Take a little  matter like the repair of a country  bridge. Plank. worth $327 bad been  purchased, but-to haul-it three miles  and a halt. ,cosi .$255. As showing  .the love of the McBride eovcrnment  for the laboring man it might be  said that two men were paid $32.50  each to relay,, this planking, a foreman got $68 to boss these two men.  a superintendent got $124.50 to boss  the foreman, and over the .top of  him a<*ain was a road superintendent;  who cot $1600 a year and expenses.  (Fault might be found with the leader,  bf an .opposition for referring..to'  these things, but there they were,  (spread on the records.  t "I' want to touch on a question  which has '��� been a burning one' here  {for years, and one which led to the  "   ��� Wm.

You   have   as   senior member,  from this city in the premier the man  who is, above all others, responsible  for this state of affairs. What are  you going to do about it; send him.  back at the head of the polls, thoj  same as last time?"  "We should say not,"  was the emphatic reply of the meeting.  The attorney-general was  author of the policy of fighting  tawa, Mr. Oliver went** to say.  bad fought them on the fisheries;  the right of control over water in the  railway belt���rumor, had it that he  would even claim control over the  entire railway belt���and on every  pretext possible. In every court he  had gone - into the claims .w advanced on the part of the province  had been decided against him; he  could not bamboozle the judges  uhough he could the people. ]nA>ac  prosecution of the Fraser river fishermen the imposition of fines and costs  had been decided against him; he  could not bamboozle the judges  though he could .the people. In' the  prosecution of the Fraser river fishermen the imposition of fines and  costs had been declared illegal by the  supreme court, but the attorney-general's department refused still to return the money. The electors would  remember the outcries about Janan-  ese and Asiatic labor while the, attorney general was going about with  ithe coin from his client Gotoh in-'his  pocket. What was-going on in his  ���department? There had been for  some time a number of murders going unwhipped ot justice���Gun-a-Noot,  ithe ; Midway murderer, the bandits  jwho held up the C.P.R. trains, the  murderer of Constable Decker.

I "What about a government that  Itook ; a sum of money from the man  who jeopardized the lives of your  'children in tliat building? That is  ithe way the province is being governed and' it is about time the people  1 ��� : - ���' '���'       ' ���   ���     '   '    put a stop to'"that state of affairs.  "In matter of education, where  was the university, where: was the  agricultural college in connection,  where was the experimental farm?  : It was said that if there was to be  an early election1 it would be because  the government had secured a- satisfactory contract with the Canadian  .Northern railway to bring its line to  the sea coast of British Columbia. It  seemed to him he had a recollection  that'in 1898 the Turner government  made a similar contract with the C.  N. It. Two teams and a scraper in  tlie neighborhood of Penticton represented all that was done, and it was  said that with a microscope old inhabitants could show the dump. He  had, too, a hazy recollection that in  1 ��#02 there was a contract with the  C. N, R. to bring its line to Victoria, and the Conservatives were returned with a handsome majority on  the head of it���but where was the  railway? Surely with a firm that  had lent itself to two bofcus contracts with' the government the  people wanted, some satisfactory  proof of a contract, and that it  would be carried out when the gov^  eminent - made such a claim for support.  "I don't go around condemning the  government as.totally bad." said Mr.  Oliver. "I believe it is bad, but I  believe there is a possibility of its  being worse. and if you return it  again it will have a chance to be a  ureal-deal worse before you have. an  opportunity to deal with it again.''  The McBride government's record  on railway matters was a poor one,  Mr. Oliver went on. In 1903-4 the  speech from the throne foreshadowed  co-operation with the Dominion government in the building, of an all-  Canadian railway into the Yukon.  Nothing more was ever heard of cooperation. The Grand Trunk Pacific  protect, entailing the building of seven hundred miles of railway and the  doubling of the habitable area of the  province, was opposed in every way  bv the nroylnclal government. Today  -..���(C.iiP.tiruie'd on   Patje 3)  when the applause which greeted; him  had died down. "I appreciate it beyond "the power of words'to .express  to you on this occasion.

The  Vancouver Province referred to my  selection as a hole-and-corner one  Well, I haye been chosen for an honored-position, and I believe I have  the ^confidence of the Liberals of the  province. (Cheers.) I want to say  that.:. I - look upon the position as a  temporary   one. There are many  men-in the Liberal ranks who are  much more capable of filling it than  I." and I hope when,the election  come, whether this year or next,  several gentlemen will be returned  on our side, and that on more able  shoulders may fall the task of lead  ing the Liberal party in this province."  There was a general chorus of dis  approval and of xries of "You're the  leader for us.'  "It has been said repeatedly that  the Liberals of British Columbia were  disorganized, defeated, discouraged,  had nothing to fight for," continued  the leader of the opposition. "I  frankly admit that our organization  is not what it ought to be. One of  the first things we have to secure  that organization is to show the  partf and the people of this nrovince  that there is a reason for the existence of the Liberal oarty, that there  is ��rood cause why it should be ner-  fectlv organized, and that is whv I  speak to vou tonight.  "Some of our opponents sf>" I have  faculties of destructive criticism; that  anv man can pull to pieces, but It''renin res a statesman to rear new edi-  'Ves. In that latter respect I think  our party will comnare favbrarti ������  with our opponents. But I wish to  show that there is a reason for our  criticism.,' of our opponents, and  that we are not only able ' to  criticise their actions hut to outline  a policy which, If we are placed in a  'continued Mr. Oliver., "This is. in  connection with the Songhees reserve.

TThe 'Indians are no fools, and'even if  !they< were they have plenty of ad-  Visers in Victoria���("That is so"}���,  .to keep, this question open. The  provincial government has been play-  png a double game in this question  'and it is to the discredit of the Lib^  ferals at Ottawa that they have ���'-������ allowed the provincial government to  !get away with their game. In Sep-  jtember, 1906, Frank Pedley. superin-  jtendent of Indian affairs, came out  ihere and saw the provincial government and entered into a verbal arrangement with them whereby they  'agreed to any contract the Dominion  .government might make for the removal of the Indians, on condition  ;that their reversionary rights should  attach to the proceeds as they  iwould have attached to the land, a  jverv reasonable proposition,and very  fair on ' the face of it. In March,  11907 Mr. Pedlev asked the govern-  iment for an answer. In the mean-  ,time there was a provincial election  [and to curry favor with the electors  here an order-in-council was passed  granting the city a reversionary  ���right in 43 acres, but the Ottawa  government was never notified and  .went on with negotiations for months  in ignorance of it  "A few days before, on February  28th, Mr. Fulton prepared a memorandum on which an order-in-council  was based, setting forth that when  any lease or transfer of any Indian  reserve ��� took place the provincial government should immediately claim it  and take possession of it on the part  of the province. Premier McBride  replied to Mr. Pedley that in view  of the actions of the Dominion government the provincial government  would have nothing more to do with  the matter. During all this time  and right up to the Dominion election the Conservative papers were  hounding the minister of inland revenue that he had not settled the  Songhees reserve difficulty after the  provincial government had made . it  impossible for the-Dominion govern-?  ment to deal with it. Time went on  ami the Dominion government, at the  solicitation of the Liberals of Victoria, took it up again and wrote the  provincial government asking for an  order-in-council giving it power to  deal with it, the province to have the  same right over the proceeds as it  would ordinarily have over the lands.  In June last the provincial goverhr  men-t passed an order-in-council, subject to the city's reversionary right.  As a matter of fact it is impossible  todav for the Dominion government  to do anything.  "I say it fearlessly, and I am prepared to meet Premier McBride anywhere on it, that the provincial government has made it utterly tamos-  sible for the Dominion government to  settle this reserve quest/ion, and at  the same time their rtf-r-rs have been  hounding the Dominion government.  I see Mr. Pedley has been asking the  city council to convey its reversionary rights to the Dominion and that  the coimcil so far has not seen fit to  do so.  "I want to go back to February,  1907, and tell you that no people  were ever handed a bigger gold-brick  than vou. There is absolutely no  statutory authority behind that order-in-council.

In  1SU5 the speech declared that the  province could not get on without  railway construction. but nothing  materialized.  Since the McBride government  had  come   into   office the Liberal eoveni-  ment at    Ottawa  had   provided 700  miles of the    G. T. P. without cost  to the province; subsidized 186 miles  ol the Kootenay   Central from Elko  to Golden, united the main line   and  Crows Nest Pass line, opening up   a  splendid country; subsidized 50 miles  of   the Kettle River Valley   line    to  open up the timber, mineral and agricultural lands on the north fork    of  the     Kettle; the   Midway.& Vernon  line had received $6,100 a mile from  the Dominion, and   was voted $5,000  a mile from     the province, but was  not built because when the company  had   made arrangements    with   New  York capitalists for the financing   of  the.    project,   Capt.    Tatlow said in  Montreal    that     the government did  not recognize the company's right to  the subsidy;   had provided a subsidy  (or a line from Nicola by way       of  Penticton to Carmi; the line     from  Spence's Bridge to Nicola bad    been  built   on    account     of the Dominion  subsidy;     on the   coast a line of 100  miles,    from     Vancouver   to"     Fort  George,   had a    subsidy     voted, the  evident    intention     ot the Dominion  government     being to connect    Victoria    with the Grand Trunk Pacific  and     open up     a vast area rich in  mineral and agricultural wealth, and  $200,000 had been     provided for     a  bridge across Burrard Inlet at     the  second     narrows,    giving Vancouver  eight or ten miles additional harbor  line. -  On Vancouver Island the Dominion  bad provided a subsidy for the E. &  N.  from Wellington to Alberni, part  of which line was built and the contract let for the balance.     A subsidy  was provided for a line from Cowich-  an Bay to Cowichan Lake, so      the  whole country tributary to Cowichan  Lake should be opened up.     The E.  & E. had been voted a subsidy     for  79 miles more from French Creek to  Campbell River, and it was only    a  matter of time until a subsidy    was  given to bring the line to the north  end of the . Island.     From Campbell  River eastward   towards  the G.T.P.  line a subsidy was available for 100  miles     of the   Vancouver.   Island. &  Eastern.     Here again the policy    of  the Dominion government was apparent, to connect this Island with   the  G.T.P.     There was also 110 miles of  the   Pacific    Northern     &  Omineca,  from Kitimat into Telkwa.     In    all  there     were   available subsidies   for  some thousand miles of railway, outside the   main     line of the    G.T.P.  totalling $6,600,000.     This was    the  sort    of "better     ���terms" the Prior  government    had   asked for in 1903,  but the     McBride government asked  for terms    which     even     their own  friends from     Manitoba and Ontario  voted against in the conference. Taking everything into account the Dominion     government     had     provided,  either by contract     or sudsidies. for  1,800 miles of    railway.     Where had  the McBride government provided tor  a single mile in the same time?   Yet-  in face of that the premier had hypnotized the electors into sending   to  Ottawa five     representatives out    of  seven to oppose-tlKj'goveruiuwrt -wlilcu  did all  this. ...._ __._  Coming to what the Liberal party  in the province proposed to do,  Oliver said they would,  if placed  power, aid the Kootenay Central  condition    of   immediate prosecuti  to completion.     All subsidies would  be made dependent on the payment to  all workers of the current rate    ot  wages     for   white labor.     The construction of a line from Nicola    to  Oarmi would be aided on condition of  construction at   once, and the Midway and Vernon people would    have  pressure     brought to bear on    them  Ito construct. Above all every possible endeavor would be used to get  a link through Hope mountain so as  to bring the Boundary trade to the  coast. If the V., V. & E. could  satisfy the government that it was  going on, well and good, but that  connection must be made in the immediate future. In the V., W. & Y.  was willing to construct a traffic  bridge 'on the proposed bridge across  Burrard Inlet and maintain it free of  tolls, he would be prepared to have  the province duplicate the Dominion  subsidy. The Liberal party would  be prepared to aid the line from  Vancouver to Fort George, and the  E. & N. to build to the north end of  the Island.  It would also aid the Victoria and  Barclay Sound, out through Metcho-  sin and     Sooke    and on to Alberni,  forming a loop line with the E. & N.  which would open an immensely rich  district    and make it tributary    to  Victoria.     They would use their influence    to get a     Dominion subsidy  from Nicola to Princeton and would  do    the same     for the Victoria and  Barclay Sound, and the extension   of  the line     to the north of the island.  They would     know no  sectionalism,  would lose     sight of mainland or island, Victoria or Vancouver, and look  to the     advancement of the interests  of British Columbia.  The average cost of constructing a  mile of railway in British Columbia  was $40,000. Subsidies of one thousand miles at $5,000 a mile would  amount to $5,000,000, and even  five per cent, the annual charge for  interest and sinking fund would bo  but $250,000, five-eighths of one per  cent per annum for forty year.s on  the outlay that would involve. If it  was remembered that probably sixty  millions more of capital would come  in in other industries the tax would  be one-fourth of one per cent.  A statement prepared by the auditor-general of Canada, showing the  expenditure in British Columbia, demonstrated the enormous error of the  statement prepared by the McBride  government. Under the head      of  public debt the auditor-general found  there had been an  expenditure in the  province of $5,146,000; the provincial  statement made it $2,45X1,000.       For  civil     government    the figures were,  respectively,    $650,000    and $270,000;  for    pensions,    $179,000 and $79,000;  on    militia,  $1,709,000 and $359,000;  on mail service, $3,070,000 and $691 -  000.    In the first 32 years since  tl  I province    entered confederation  auditor-general    showed  " ~^  had been    expended  and yet whinine that the people in  the "cent belt', did jnot give them  1 uough monev to spend.  The best claim British Columbia  had, Mr. Oliver said, was in the  rates charged on the C. P. R. He.  had looked into the matter carefully  and that was the best claim the  province had; and it had never been  advanced. When he got a resolution  passed for the" presentation ol the  I case to the railway commission here  last spring the provincial government  threw away the case.  In regard     to the Asiatic question  Mr. Oliver asked what any provincial  government    had ever :   done to stop  one    Asiatic from    coming    in here.  Whatever had been done to keep them  out was done    by the Dominion government.        And   while labor unions  and Conservative papers, claimed that  Dominion regulations were not effective when there     was a rumor   that  the   G.     T. P. wanted    to bring in  Orientals, these same people denounced the   government     for a supposed  readiness to remove the restrictions.  The record of -the    McBride government was that it shouted white and  voted yellow in the house every time  there was a    proposal to put in     a  white labor clause in any contract.  "You are responsible yourselves   if  you do not want theBc people here,"  continued   Mr. Oliver.     "You have a  Public Health Act under which     the  governor-in-council      has   power    to  make   regulations     as to dwellings.  How    many   fire-traps     have you in  Victoria,     where    people   would   be  roasted to death by the hundred in   a  fire?      How many dens of filth    are  there, inhabited     by hordes of Asiatics?     It will be the aim ot the Liberal party to put this in force if we  are placed in power.     We will have a  rigid inspection of all places of human  abode to see that they arc fit for occupation.     We will have no Lampson  street   schools.       We propose to   see  that health and    sanitaiy conditions  are lived     up  to by those Asiatics,  w,e propose under the Health Act    to  make these    people   and every other  people measure up to the white man's  standard      in      British      Columbia.  (Cheers.)     You know perfectly   well  the     Dominion    government     would  never think ol interfering it we work  along sane, practical lines, such    as  these."  Mr. Oliver dealt shortly with    the  necessity for operiirijt  up agricultural  areas     to   the     actual settlers, and  pointed to the fact that seven     million   dollars     worth, of   agricultural  products which should be produced at  home have to be imported every year.  Today large quantities of..-, land, timber and    mineral locations have gone  into the hands     of    Americans, who  were   holding    land'   at    such   high  prices that settlement   was, retarded.  This was not a party matter at all;  the man who put party before province was a traitor to his country. He  had no quarrel with those who    held  these     areas-    now   as they had got  them under the law's, but experience  was   teaching     the'   people that    a  change    was   needed.      Areas     into  which settlers    could go should   ' be  surveyed    and   mapped, and information    be readily    obtainable and the  land given    free to    men who would  use it immediately.  In the matter of timber the leader  recalled how the government had voted down the verv proposals thev  were now going to adopt. He advocated allowing municipalities, which  needed more 1 revenue to meet increasing demands on them,, to levy  and collect on personal property instead of the provincial government  getting it.  In concluding Mr. Oliver called upon  tire electors to weigh the record ol  the government and decide that in  the interests of" - the nrovince a  change of government was needed.  The following resolution was moved  by A. B. McNeill, seconded by W. K.  Houston, and adopted:  "That the Liberals of Victoria in  meeting assembled endorse the policy  enunciated bv our leader, John  Oliver, that we pledge ourselves to  disseminate those principles that dis-,  tinguish the Liberal party from the  Conservative party, now in power in  this province; and that we do our utmost on the first opportunity to elect  representatives to the legislature,  who shall give effect to those nrin-  ciples in laws that shall be placed  on the statutes of this province.

POSSIBILITIES OF  NORTH VANCOUVER  fefo f\i  RTLEY  WATCHHAKER AND OPTICIAN  Lower Town, Phoenix  The Store where You get 100 Cents in Value  for Every Dollar.  City Destined to Be the Brooklyn of the Pacific  That North Vancouver is destined  to be the Brooklyn of the Pacific seems  assured. The growth of the Ambitious  City has had due relation to the growth  of its elder sister city on the south  shore of Burrard Inlet and now that  there is every possibility of two new  railroads reaching this body of water  from north ot the 54th parallel it would  not be surprising to learn that one  of them, or both, would make the north  shore its terminus. Waterfrontage in  and around North Vancouver there is  in abundance, which can be obtained  and turned to account at a moderate  outlay. It is.:. estimated that 1000  acres of tidrfiat?, besides five miles ol  good waterfront, extending from the  first narrows to the north arm of Burrard inlet are available for dockage purposes which only awaits the hand of  S progress to transform them into one  of the safest and most commodious  series of wharves.  The coming of the railway into  North Vancouver will vitalize very  quickly the great r resources dormant  there. Tiansportation will enable industries to take advantage of the many  streams ol pure water that are running  there. The day cannot be far distant  when woollen, cotton, and paper mills  must    be   operated   in   the   province.  iSome think there is an opening for  them even now. They must be near  in a large city to get suitable labor  a conveniently, and they must have the  I best of water. North Vancouver is the  only suitable place for them. Where  else can they go. ? The incoming of  one large industry opens the way for  others to follow. North Vancouver  also ha6 many choice sites for shipbuilding yards and engineering establishments. Such establishments are  needed on the Pacific Coast in ever in  creasing number. At present theie  are two wharves capable of accommodating seagoing vessels, and more are  contemplated in the very near future.  The citizens of this enterprising borough  recently celebrated a large steamer to  dock at her wharf, and they look forward to a continuance and enlargement of these calls,  t The ferry service connecting North  Vancouver with Vancouver has been  recently acquired by the former and is  in keeping with the traffic. Already a  new and larger ferry boat has been  talked of, which is needed to meet the  requirements of a rapidly growing  business.  No industry that can be established  will ever to any extent interfere with  the amenity of North Vancouver -as a  home site. Sheltered from the biting  winds of the north and east, and having  the warmth of a south sunny slope,  tempered by the fresh breezes off the  ocean, the climate is. ideal. .No extremes of heat or cold, 01 wet, or  araugnrr7 ic ns-almost entirely,<X,c?  from the trying-fogs'wh-'oW���cffteh overspread the neighboring valley like a  great shroud, and are an impediment  to traffic and business, and a danger  to health.  When two of the most conservative  of Canadian banks have confidence  enough to not only, open branches in  the city, but also to purchase sites at  very substantial prices for bank premises, others may join with them in  the belief that the city is to be progressive in no ordinary degree.  The splendid equipment both. for  electric lighting and for telephone service indicate confidence also, and already these services are a source of satisfaction alike to the' companies and  to the citizens.  The social, religious and educational  departments are in keeping with the  population, there being now eight  friendly societies,, five churches and  several first class public and private  schools. A local horticultural association has provided a splendid exhibition  hall, which proves of great service for  meetings and entertainments, besides  being the headquarters for the annual  fall fairs of the association.  ��� Surrounding North Vancouver city  northeast and west is the rich farming  and mineral district of North Vancouver, with a population of from 1500  to 2000. The district extends from  Howe sound east to the North arm of  Burrard Inlet, eight miles in width, and  embraces the beautitul and far-famed  Capilano and Lynn valleys. There is  an assessed value of over $3,000,000,  with a general debt of $75,000, including a local district debt of $30,000  The current tax levy is 14^ mills on  the dollar on land values only  The north shore of the Inlet is  becoming   dotted  with  summer resorts,  and camping grounds, while the fishing,  mountain-climbing and scenic  attrac  tions are unsurpassed.  The coming of the railway into North  Vancouver will vitalize very quickly  the great resources lying dormant there.  The day cannot be far distant when  the cherished hopes and aspirations of  its progressive citizens will be fully rea  lized. A new era has dawned on the  Ambitious City with the advent of a  large marine railway, the opening up  of the rich group of copper mines  close at hand and the extension of its  already large street car system. Five  years ago norfh Vancouver was a forest,'  today it bids fair to become a sturdy  rival of its southern neighbor.���World.  Local and General.  A. Gillinan left, yesterday foi  Spokane.

There is no reason  why  a place  the  size and  importance  of  Phoenix should not have a continuous  service.    In a city where the population is so scattered and mines operating  all night the urgent necessity of such a  service   occurs   daily.     It  is   understood the telephone company will provide a continuous service if a guarantee  is given against such being a financial  loss, which should  be easily arranged  by those who  will be specially  fitted.

I at once applied some Zam-Buk, which  eased the pain,.and in the course of a  few days the wounds   were thoroughly  healed;" ��� j^l;-^ v ';['j ��� ' ' ' -y-'i  ;7M7sT.TTebTger Aldtidge," 1"2 Louise  Strectj-Stratford, says :-���"While playing  barefooted about the yard, .my! son  Bertram, 6 years old, stepped , on a  broken glass bottle, which cut very  deeply into his big toe. The cnt was.  so deep that I sent for a doctor and  had the foot properly dressed, the doctor leaving a lotion to be applied daily.  Under this treatment, however, the  wound seemed to get no better, but on  the contrary inflammation set in. A  kindly neighbor.'then recommended  Zam-Buk. We obtained a supply,  and after a few applications the child  seemed to rest better, and the pain  was very much reduced. In a few  days; under, the Zam-Buk treatment,  the wound assumed a better appearance, and; from that time healing was  very rapid. Inflammation and soreness were finally completely banished,  and in ten days from the first application of Zam-Buk, we took the bandages  from the foot. I feel sure that but for  Zam-Buk the child would have had a  very bad time, and might have had''to  sacrifice the toe."  Not only for cut?, bums, bruises,  ttc, is Zam Buk effective, but also fur  serious skin diseases such as eczema,  ringworm, ulcers, etc. It also cures  poisoned sores, chronic wounds, bad  leg piles, festering sores, chapped hands,  cold sores, frost-bite, and all skin injuries and diseases. Druggists and  stores everywhere sell at 50c a box, or  post free for price from Zam-Buk Co.  Torr.nto; 3 boxes for $1.25.
