Oh reliable authority wo understand that the
Southern B.tJ. LandaJc Miiie», Ltd, of Merntf, are
engaged jus! now in putting through a deal where*
by an English syndicate or ranchers will become
possessed of a large tract of land in the Of tor Valley
adjoining the lake lor the purpose of dividing up
into neighboring ranches. W. & l-nnean of the*
.Soul hern I) (.'. Lands &. Mines was recently in the
vicinity, which lends color to the statement. A
W. McVittic of Merritt was alao in town a week
ago and the report goes thut the Merriitian is likewise interested in devcloptnonts along this line.
The Tnlameen country will welcome all the
good ranchers that feel inclined to come in but can
dispense with the uHaw, haw" variety which
prompted a young t anadian girl to rcmurk in j|
their presence one day last sunmicr. '-Theme ii
'bltioraing' English men positively {five rae a pain!" !|
Victoria is the fit and proper resting place for these <'
guys and the TulMiueen wants none of them. \\

I again for the mountains of the Interior
and in March, 1816, he started  out   for
I what lie called Qui!'* country.   Iu thoi-e
I benighted times the sicauish'ip "K. P.
Kithet" took the up country   tiavellcr
from   Victorii  to  New   Westaiiiistrr,

refreshing was his sleep   bcticult   the
«lud<:   of   the   mighty   cedars.  ■   The

excitement wis at its height, the  newcomers overll nving  with   enthusiasm
at ihe prospect of the untold wealth lo
be  uncovered,  some di.-gruutled  ones
going out cursing  tile  country   to  all
; perdition: but these Utter were greeu-

Keaching Granite Creek   ate in the
March of '86,  Collin  rested  and out-
tilted, packing each load on his back lo

Some few. weeks after this  wheu   he
blew into town again—for Granite was
"lown" then with fourteen hotels wide
open  all the time—Collin reported a
stiikc of some very  line coal  that  he
was using in his cauip atove  and  the
fireplace iu  his cabin:  and thla  was,
the writer believes, the first knowledge
of coal in any quautity in the vicinity,
Later on At Tregillus, of the firm of
fregillus & iVIalOue Til  NeUou,   while
out hunting discovered small parti lea
of coal turned out of tile Holes of what
he called a uiouuiaiu beaver—probably
a marmot—these industrious little animals doing some Coal mining on their
