Thcmining industry of Soiitlieasl ' Kootenay is not a little  handicapped by this lack' of ade-  ((uate transportation (acuities.  With such immense and valuable ore bodies as exist in the  Port Steele district, it seems un-  fortunato that the district should  lack adequate means of transportation.  ' The,building-of the   Kootenay  Central railway, besides   enlarging-  the   number   of.  producing  mines,     would     help . pay   due  1 tribute to  tlie   splendid   mineral  o l  resources ol British Columbia.    .  ivoelc.

Tn pursuance of  this lofty idea, tliey have met  with marked "success' contrived  to'delay the country's business  without advancing their own  ends, and to expose their own  weakness withoid inflicting injury upon their opponents.  Most of them appear to have  realized their ' humiliating- position .since only the-redoubtable  John- Oliver, (Delta) and J. A.  lVlacdonald (Rossland) look any  notable part in tho proceedings  of the past week. The rest sat  in sullen silence, or went out into  the lobbyito whisper fierce con-,  tidences into the ears of would-  be railroad magnates. The government maintains its' steady  majority of five and six. and the  mental calibre of the present  opposition is not of a. character  to-enable, iheni to-present any  argument that can alter the ex-  isting condition of affairs.  With further reference lo the  railway matters now under' consideration by the government,  alluded to in last'week's correspondence, it is~ worthy of note,  as illustrating the , enormous  nature of the task devolving  upon Mr McBride and his  colleagues in selecting the most  advantageous policy, that there  are now by actual count, close  upon twenty different railway  projects before the government.  Some of these propositions have  merit���a good many have none  at all, ��� indeed are absolutely-  worthless except to their promoters.1 Now. it must be  abundantly clear to every thinking man with the smallest appreciation of the straitened financial  circumstances of tho province,  that  it  is   not  possible,   at  the  prompt opening-up rof these  much-neglected sections of the  province. This is definitely  known by those who are in close  touch with,the government plans  for railway development, as far  as at present, matured.,  Tho government,is satisfied,  in spite of the difficulties above  alluded to. that, before the close  of the present session, it will bo  in a position to bring down legislation xv'hich, while ultimately  leading to the closer connection  of the Coast and the Kootenays.  will insure the-commencement  of, immediate construction on  much needed linos in.the interior  upon terms in evory.way satisfactory to the country at largo.  Mr. Morse, vice-presido.nl and  general,' manager of, the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway, accom-,  paniod by his' followers; left  Victoria last night (Friday) for  the East. Their departure was  without ostentation, and. it may  be added,   without    regret;   .at  Pertaining the least ideu-of starting construction work at this  end. unless n iva-, very well paid  for it. No one can blame the  Grand Trunk���but what abom  the honorable gentlemen in high  places who had pledged , their  words? They were dumb as  oysters, but Senator Temple-  inun's organ in Victoria undertook to drag a red herriiiii' across  the trail.  And Ihe herring was accordingly dragged. Il look the form  of a deep nnd deadly plot ���which  according to Senator Temple-  uian'.s said organ, the Victoria  Times-had been entered into  between the McBride government and the Grand Trunk Pacific, whereby Mr. McBride and  his colleagues were to acquire  vague but enormous wealth by  handing over a vast expanse of  territory to the Grand Trunk  people, who, in return for such  complacency were to commence  const ruction right away. Or  maybe not-, but they would get  iho laud anyway.  in the matter of .object and detail, the plot 'seemed' to" ,the  judicial eye to be somewhat lacking in finish: but if suited the  Liberals admirably, in that it  cloaked the falsehood and folly  of their leaders, and they  raised  j ��' i  a terrible" outcry against the  Provincial government for its  intended sacrifice of the people's  heritage'.   ,  ��� Then Mr Morse arrived.  Then, also nothing happened.  And the'weeks went on and' still  nothing happened. Tt began to  be whispered that, Mr. Morse  was scared of Ihe Provincial  'government. The lion' wouldn't  roar: the rascally Conservatives  refused    to   bo    rascals Mr.  Morse has gone" home with  empty hands, the (".'rand Trunk-  Pacific will���as Mr,. Morse puts  it���arrive in British Columbia on  schedule   time   in   1011. and   the  RAILWAY  RUMBLES  Activity in Railway Construction  This Summer.  Southeast    Kootenay'    people1  believe that the  Kootenay  Central is to be bonused by the provincial  government   to   the extent of $5,000 per mile.  All indications now point to  unprecedented activity in railway construction this summer in  southern British Columbia. The  C.P.R. and Great Northern have  virtually prepared their plans  for-an extension of their respective lines west.of Midway. The  policy of the former company-  has hitherto been a waiting one.  but circumstances will compel it  to start, work in order to offset  the vigorous policy of its aggressive competitor. ��� Greenwood  Times. '      ; '  The position taken by the  Grand Trunk Pacific is* a. distinct violation of the understanding that existed during the  discussion of, the contract, as  well as of the assurances given  to the people of British Columbia. Il is also so unwarrantable  a demand that it i.s no wonder it  has excited opposition in the  western province. The company  is getting a road worth over a-  hundred million dollars for an '  actual cash expenditure of fourteen millions, and it is not satis-  lied. The eastern section is be-'  ing built by the country, and  three-quarters of tlie cost of tho  western section is being financed  by the government of Canada,  and yet it would seem that the,  promoters, of the road will not  carry out the work in ,the spirit -  of their contract unless the western province supplements the  generous terms with  a   satisfac  tory   grant  News.  of    lands.���Toronto  begin n ing  c bewildered  public   i.s  least on the part of the  govern-1 tQ   sR .UK,   :isk ',,hc   uliom]  ment Before     leaving,    Mr.        ,lnvhi|| jtM1|f.  .inywav  Morse made a definite statement, |     ,���' t,iscussilli, Ul0 ilir;li], {hoi.0  once to the press and onc�� to the"  The Election Gold Brick.  present time and under the present conditions, to launch out into  '���'.

The object, therefore, that the  government lias m view, the  problem that they have to solve.  is to secure the construction of  such rail ways as .shall reach  those sections of the country  whose development.thereby will  be of the greatest benefit to the  greatest number, and'thus .most  beneficial- to the province as a  whole.  -For instance, not a few of  these -.,- railway projects���good  enough schemes for development  had the province a large banking  account���traverse in tlie main,  districts very thinly,, if at all,  populated. Of such are. say, a  large portion of the Grand-Trunk  Pacific, and several other pro:  posed lines. Other lines, again,  would open lip to quicker communication   and    better   market  Board of Trade,'to the effect  that a proposition had been made  by his company to the Provincial  Government, but had not been  accepted: and that, therefore,  failing the desired provincial inducements to commence construction work at this end,  simultaneously with other points  the company would adhere' to  their original plan and build the  line from the east westward..  Negotiations in this direction  being now broker off, it is. worth  while takiug a glance���a pitying  ���glance���at the muddle the Liberal party has got itself into  over the matter. Prior and during the recent general election,  the. people ol British Columbia  were solemnly .assured by persons in high places that construction would commence in  British Columbia simultaneously  with- other points in the provinces and territories lying east  of its, The, Horn Miv Prefon-  taine. told us ���so-���in fact, took'  the trouble to come all the 'way  over the Rockies to say if. 7"The  Hon'.

And the/ people,  believed Messrs. Prefoiita,ineand  is one closing word. Had Mr.  Morse's proposition to the government been of a business-like  character, 'such as could have  been fairly entertained by faithful representatives of the people  a satisfactory arrangement might  have been entered into. Rut the  nature of the proposition was so  altogether out of proportion,  that no soli'-respecting government could consider it.
