South East Kootenay is essentially a mining district, and is a  country of vast possibilities in  agriculture, lumbering and  other industries.  During the past,four years tho  Canadian Pacific Railway Company have had surveyors in the  field every summer, ostensibly  their business was to., survey  lands already crown-granted to  that company. But the real fact  of their, being here was lo select  the best lands in the valley, that  when the B7 C. SoulhernTrailway  was completed, that they would  be able to secure the best ariablc  land in tho'Kootenay valley under an Act which gave them 20,-  000 acres per mile,of constructed  railway.  ,The most' important question  that is before the' people  of South East Kootenay today,  is, the manner in which the provincial government has disposed  of almost the entire district of  South East Kootenay as railway  land grants, < not only for railways constructed in tliis district  but for railways that do not, approach within' several hundred  miles of its borders! During the  past' two years over 3,000,000  acres have been crown granted  to tho B. ,C. , Southern-as land,  'grants. A small section; shown  on the map as L. 4,593', ,situated  in'the south eastern portion of  the district was'reserved. ' Also  a portion shown as L. 4,594, was  also reserved, as .was supposed,  to be retained by the government as lands open" for preemption, as lands valuable to the  province. '   .  Those lands wore known lo bo  rich in mineral, coal and. oil.  lumbcr'and land for ,a,griculfure.  Strong protests have been made  to the.- government,, indicating  the.value and resources of  those  following out the agreements of"  their charter, -'the taking of ,'al,- ,  ternate sections on either side of .  said railways"', it is taken: in '  blocks prospected and practically selected by the railway com- \  pany. ,'���-..-      ���'���'  We wonder if the  government  fully    understood,    and   had     a  knowledge  of  the  future  prospective value of these enormous ,  areas.     As  it  is, however, it is  up to the present government lo  explain why these areas was reserved, and if reserved in the in- -  teresf' of  the  Canadian   Pacific    '  Railway Company.    The crown  granting   of   blocks   4,59-1 ' and  -1.5U3 occured during the   month   ,..  of October last. ���  several' areas.  The  C.   P.   R.

The Coal Company propose starting a town and company store at Coal Creek. The  subject has been under consideration by tho company for several  months, and from recent reports  it would seem as if the company  had decided to take a hand in the  general.supply business as well  as coal and coke.  Regarding'the development of  the mineral resources of the  Fort Steele district the cons: ruction of the north and south i-j.il-  way is the most important I'.u-.i.m  The deep placer mines on  Perry and Weaver -Creeks will b������  worked all winter.  knowings the prospective value  of these large areas, did noi  make any attempt to have them  included in the B. C. Southern  land grant,. They selected land  on the western slope of the Sel-~  kirk range along the eastern side  of Kootenay Lake. With all  this large area, there-was not  sufficient to meet tho demand of  'the railway company, and a  largo area some .'1-1 by 40 miles,  containing about. N70,U00 acies.  the best lands available in the  Windermere district are reserved for railway purposes,  that i.s, to complete the B. C.  Southern land grant.  Tt looked as if block's L. 4,59-1,  I j. -I,.">9:i were to escape from the  clutches of the big corporative  land pirates. But this was not  to be. The area was supposed,  and is known to be rich in coal,  oil and petroleum.- And a railway in West Kootenay, owned  by the C. P. R. wanted land  uncler_a construction Act. If is  known as the Columbia & West  ern, and is said to run from Trail  to Penticton. Tnis grant ^calls  lor i'0,0')0 acres per mile if of  siandard guage, 10.2-10 acres per  mile if of a narrow guage. With  an eye to business, tlio C.P.R.  has managed to have these two  blocks crown granted to said  Columbia & Western railway, or  more particularly speaking; to  themselves.  South East Kootenay contains  aii   acreage ,of   about   4,300,000..  acres."'

It is the opinion of the writer  that  the   reverend   kicker,   has  outstepped   the   bounds  of  his'  profession in attempting as  the  paid attorney, or head-push, of a  corporation, to rush into a  controversy  not  suited   to his j:>ro-  fession.  ' As a teacher of divine  principles, he labors not, for the  ������Slav"   or  poor   '-Dago-'.      His  duties are confined  to  the   "big  corporation" whose tool   he  has  been, "directly ��or  indirectly  in  this matter of licenses at Fernie.  and his  wail   of sorrow, "for a  lost job" has at last reached the  columns   of  the   Free  Press,   a  publication,   which    would   not  have published the same wilhout  the signature  of "the   reverend  kicker,   who   should   teach   his  people   that   intemperance   can  only   be   controlled    by    moral  suasion,, and not at the"dictate of  corporations'.  Headauarters  Mining  Commercial  The  Windsor  i  '��� (We hold ourselves rt'apoasible for  the opinions expressed in the following  article.)���-Ed.  N the last issue of the Fernie  Free      Press     appeared ��� a  '   communication,     roasting     the  License      Commissioners      for  granting  a   license to a hotel in  that town.     The writer E.   F.  Stillman, ,who has appeared at  ���every, meeting of the Commissioners.during  the  'past   year,  when  an application for Fernie'  wTas to be considered, has evidently lost his job, and a source  of profit, directly or  indirectly,  all by the combined efforts  of  a  " "Bull-headed policeman, a printer, and a hobo".  '  One material point in considering the application  referred   to  ���   .by   the   said   Stillman, 'by   the  Board, was, who was the gentleman  representing;   was  he   the  paid attorney, for , some  corporation, or was'he there  solely Jn  the interest  of temperance and  'morality, and   tho householders  of Fernie.    The board arrived at  a conclusive  opinion  as to this  '. question. The petition presented  by  the  applicant was  the best  petition   in  point of  number of  signatures, and as householders  that has  ever  came  before the  board.  The conclusive evidence' pro-  sented by the counter petition,  and sworn to by the said Still-  man alone, was not considered a  preponderance of evidence over  the sworn evidence of three responsible residentsof Fernie.  . The evidence in favor of the  application, by petition which  containing 740 signatures, 150  not befiog householders, the  balance 590 was sworn to as  "bona tide" householders. A  large number signed both  petitions, and in summing up the  evidence, the sworn testimony  of the three witnesses in favor  of. was considered a preponderance over the testimony of the  said Stillman alone.  The reverend gentleman refers  to Chapter IH. section i'2 of the  Liquor License Act of 1900. And  then devotes his ' attention to  "Slavs" and -'Dagos" who are  not British subjects. The license  board in the opinion of the  writer has no right to raise  questions of nationality. The  act specifies householders, and  not subjects or aliens. And a  householder may be a "Dago" or  a -'Slav".  In conclusion the reverend  gentleman makes a statement  that, -'the two commissioners  encouraged by the inspector set  the law at defiance and granted  the license, which is fal.-se in  every respect, and on a pari ty  with ma.ny other .statements  which ho has made.  The Reverend Stilinian also  accuses the board of being influenced by favoritism, bribery.  vor partianship.
