Notes by the Way
The Rev, J. R, Craig of Westminster Presbyterian Church South
Vancouver in a recruiting sermon
recently, said, "We ure fighting to
uphold our homes and to uphold
the honor of lhe great British Empire That honor is wnped up in
;i mere scrap of paper which guaranteed the neutrality of Belgium.
We. chose to uphold that honor.
We nre paying seven million
pounds per day to do it. if necessary we will pay more, No sacrifice is loo great to make in this
cause." Mr, Craig is known to
the valley and won universal respect and admiration for his courageous opinions and bard hitting

miuistria] capacity, a year or two
ago. He has offered himself for
active sci vice, but lias been turned

Scots. A magnificent spread by
Mine Host Booth of the Courtenay
Hotel, to ivhich about forty guests
sat down, After full justice had
been done to the repast a very long
toast 'list was gone through, with
Colin Campbell as toastmaster.
The first number was a selection
bv th�� Orchestra of the 102111I
Ilatt., which was highly appreciated. The next was a song "A Wee
Doch in Doris," by Corp. Kirhy
win, has a good voice with a fine
SeoU-h burr to it. "The King"
was honored in the timehonorecl
custom by singing the National
Anthem, Rev, T. Menzies recited
the "Bioken Howl": J. II, Mclntyre sang "Scotland Vet."
"Comox   District" proposed   by

35 years ago;   there were  about 30
farmers, here then and a fortnightly |
boat took all the  produce they had
to sell to  Nanaimo,    The country
would   be   better   than ever  after
these hard times were over.  Something had always turned up to help
the   workers   of   this   valley,     He
spent   many winters iu   California!
and had travelled by boat and overl

and   that   he   talked   loudly   and

CoiUox District and in irked with n red cr iss each section Ilml to

ih re were <j2 crosses on lho plan, Also I specially marked section 39 its also dtillcd on bill no record known beyond Itergsny,
ol results, : i n I weni ion Iriend who possesses n ("ood I;now
leil.'.e of field work, unci who has been engagtil in the active
il m'niniii ni nt mines till his life, explained nn plan to him In
il tail an I asked Iin opinion ai lo how unity bore holes were

er to the district ami is tot,ill,' unacquainted nr lo who is the
owner of am particular section
After sttuhing the pi hi intently for some lime he told me
thai 3 bore boles would fiiirly well prove up the leport of the
consulting engineer in r< speci to i he coal seams iindei I lying lhe
vail v, Im! would nol ol course be sufficient lo det.-itnine the location of a shaft. Thnl he would recommend a drill hole on
section t, Conn \ the late Mr. Kobb owner, on section 8, upper
side ���' f high road, Ca] t Vigors owner, and on section |S til almost exiranie low end of properly, Mr, Hugh 'lurk owner, The
Com ix bore lie said wt uld prove b ith tide Mats and inshore
property, sect1, n 8 bore would prove up a regular ring of crosses
lhat showed on plan in thnl vicinity, wltilsl the b re on Section
48 taken iu roniiection with the bore holes already down on sections = 7 and 39 would prov up all the upper end of lhe valley.
Taking for grunted that at least three bore holes are necessn y to
the effective development of the field, the next question is what
will they cost.
Cost. I'xhnustive ei qiiiries 011 my part last year amongst
diamond drill contrac'ors, as to contract price per foot foi deep
holes of from 3,000 to .,500 feet, elicited an nstoni hing "ed; of
varying prices. ( hie contractor quoted me a price of $3 lo $3.50
per foot up to 1000 feet, bul his letter staled the cost would increase very materially below that depth, Another quoted his
best price ai pi per foot I'm deet* holes, subject to a 5,000 foot
contract, and contingent on no bid ground such as quick sands
being met with. The lowest price I could obtain was from a
well known firm of diamond drill manufacturers and contractors
in Chicago, who quoted me a pi ice of $4 40 per foot on holes up
to 2.5')') feet in lepth. The result of nt) correspondence was
the opinion lhat contract prices were a'tuo.l out of the <j11 stion
and that the most economical way was to buy a drill, hire local
men many first rate diamond diill men are living in the district
���and do the work bv Ihe day. A perusal of .Maxwell's report
of the drilling 011 section 57 ranfirmed this opinion, and as this,
report gives sonic very interesting data a brief synopsis will be of
inU rest.
Star'ing at 700 feet the report covers 117 working days of
this period the drill worked 9; days and was idle 26 days. The
I ist entry shows a depth of 2,150 feet which gives au average of
1554 feet drilled for each wort, ing day. Tlie most striking
paint is the fact thai the av.rige is kepi up evenly over tlie tn-
tire period and that depth appeared no hinderauce t) speed At
a depth of 819 feet a record ii 51 be' was drilled iu one (lav, at
[,568 fe:t a record of 38 feet was drilled in one day, whilst
records of 15 to 20 feet a day are common right down to the
lowest depth of 2,150 feet
A suitable and eon plete diamond drill outfit having capacity
of putting a hole lo a depth of 2,500 feet and removing a 2 inch
core, including sufficient diamonds, can be landed at Comox for
$9,000. Including the cost of the drilling outfit, allowing $25 a
day in wages for two shifts of three men each shift, allowing an
incidental expense account of $10 per day to cover repaias, etc.,
and estimating on the same average of speed as shown in Maxwell's report, 3 2,500 foot holes can be drilled for S5.53 per foot,
a total of 526,475 and a saving of $11,525 over the lowest contract pi ice offered of $35,000 for the .same depth and number of
holes, besides owning the dtillillg apparatus when the work is
liiii-h-d, wliicli could be s >1 1 for at least 50 per cent, of purchase
prite and thus effect a total saving of almost $11,000. Tho
above estimate is figured at a good margin of snfetv and we can
sale y assume that $-'6,000 will cover the cost of 3 ptospect holes
to the lowest depth required whil-t if satisfactory results were
obtained around 2,000 feet in depth, the cost would 1 e reduced
almost 25 per cent.
Financing. Supposing the total area effected to be 8,000
aires, and iu order to raise jS*6,ooo each owner was assessed
equitably per acre, il would mean au assessment of $5.25 per
acre or $520 for every 160 acres. Are the possible results in
proportion? he is a hard man to please who denies t .at they are
net. A sale at $100 per acre of these coal righis means $10,000
for every 160 acres, or over 30 times the small 1 xpenditttre per
acre requir, d for development purposes. liven so, there are
some owners no doubt who would refuse to consider an assessment at any price and unless all are in on au equal basis it is
vcr\ certain tli it a proportion "f the owners will not fool the bill
and allow the laggards to benefit. To overcome this drawback
I would suggest that a development fund be opened lo which
both the public and cwiieis an: invited '.o subscribe. That as
th's fin d it essentially for development purposes and started with
the sole object ot putting oil a saleable 'oasis the Crown Granted
Coal Areas that 10 date have provedtc.be unmarketable, that
each and every subscriber to this fund is given 11 guarantee by
tie joint owners that if a sale is effected the sum of ten dollars
will bo paid Iin:'- for every dollar subscribed to the fund, or,
that if a company is formed that $10 worth of stock will be
issued for every dollar subscribed to the fund.
Small amounts quickly total into large   sums and   there are
hundreds of   individuals in   the district   who would   contribute
from $20 to $50 each to such a fund on terns as outlined,
