The Water System
What Pipe may be used to increase Fire Protection
During the past week, while searching for other information, the follow
excerpts Imve com. to my notice. It
is here pointed out very clearly, that
the life of wooden pipe is not depend
dent upon the life nf the wood, but
upon the life of the steel wire with
which it is bound.
The writer has examined carefully
the wire on pipe that was laid in
Cranbrook in 1905. Aside from what
appeared to he Bpotfl where the galvanizing seemed to have llnk.d off.
These spots were about the Blze of
the head of a pin, and did not pit
the wire, which was as good as the
day that it was wound on the pipe.
Thia wire bas remained normal since
1905. Why should it not continue to
remain normal indefinitely, Inasmuch
as the ground conditions will remain
the Bame in the near vicinity to the
Wood pipe, bored out of logs, has
been used in England, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and other countries
for years. London has 400 miles of
it in use 218 years—during the recent reconstruction tt was found to
be quite sound.
Constantinople still receives part
of her water supply through wood
Portsmouth, N. H., used bored
pipe logs for mains from 1798 to
1896, when larger mains were required. The pipe was entirely sound
when taken out aud replaced with
large cast-iron  mains.
Burlington, N. J.( first water
works were built in 1804. The wood
pipe was purchased from the City of
Philadelphia, wliere it had been in
use for many years, and it was then
replaced with larger cast-iron mains.
This wood pipe waB used until 1887,
when larger works were required.
Boston used one system of wood
pipe from 1652 to 1796, then replaced
lt with another one, which lasted until 1*48.
In 1829 a line of two miles of wood
en pipe was laid with three inch bore
at Fayetteville, N. C. It is sound
yet and in constant use.
The large wood stave pipe, which
carries the water that supplies the
pumps of tbe city water works of
Manchester, N, H., has been laid
since 1874, and the superintendent of
the works recently said: "We know
nothing of its condition, as it has
laid six feet below surface and we
have no occasion to disturb it."
Deii.e--, Colo., has nearly 100 mileB
ot stave pip: conduit, und main in
uae. All the water brought to Denver for domestic use paBsefl through
wooden pipe.
In 1855, Plymouth, Mass., replaced
her system ot wooden pipe which had
heen in use since 1776.
Mr. Hull, of Connecticut, who has
had an experience ot over forty years
with large wooden stave pipe, states,
in a letter to Engineering NeWB
(June 20, 1S91), that he estimates
the life of wooden pipe, when entirely exposed and air circulating a-
round it, at from forty to fifty
years, and that he considers its life
Indefinite when buried under ground.
This question will undoubtedly be
of more Interest to the layman than
some others. There are two kinds of
leaks, collar and stave leaks. Collar
leaka are those itt the joints of the
pipe; while stave leaks may occur be
tween the slaves at any point in a
length of pipe.
Inasmuch as there is hut a   small
percentage of the leaks that   are   of
this nature, we   will   consider   them
flrat.    The two chief causes of leaks
of this nature are frost mid water-
hammer.    To illustrate:
We will open   the   hydrant   on   Mr.
Bowness' corner, and let   lt   run   to
flush out the mains.   The water will
be allowed to run, full   bead,   from
five to ten minutes.   The unusual excessive   use   of   water   for   so   long
starts a large flow   of   water   clear
back as far as the reservoir.   The ra
pldity with which the water   passes
through the pipe is greater near the ■
hydrant than towards the reservoir. I
It takes some little time to get two I
mileB of water tmvelling at n "dou-'
ble quick" all the way.
When a rubber ball is dropped on a
solid walk, it rebounds, drops again
nnd rebounds. This continues several times, the ball rebounding less
and less each time.
When the hydrant Is quickly closed
the stream of water put in motion
by the hydrant being opened, re-
houndH as did tbe rubber Pall. Think
(tf the unusual strain put upon tbe
pipe when thc tons of water moving
at about fifteen feet per flecond must
suddenly stop. There ls one tremend
ous rebound; then many lesser ones
until the water in the entire system '
| regains its normal state.     To Illustrate farther:    In my stable, I have
a vnlve hy which one motion   opens
it and another motion closes it.   In
my kitchen I had a pressure    gunge
that registered as high   as   150   lbs
per sq. inch.   The working pressure,
at the time of this incident, was 40
lbs.   The valve in tbe bam was open
ed long enough to fill   a   pall   with
Water, then closed quickly. The pressure guage— well, lt went the 1501b
limit, and right on going out of buai
ness. a ruined instrument.   It will be
s?en tbat winding must be   of   such
size and spacing as to amply provide
for this occasional abnormal strain.
PipeB which are   wound   with   tbe
lighter wire are generally put out of
commission when they freeze as thi.
elastic limit of the wire has been pas
sed, and It cannot return to Its former state.    Stave leaks recently are
tew; but In years past   the   system
has had a very large number.
The leaks last year were bo far as
I can learn mostly at the joints, or
collar leaks.   It is shown that these
leaks were in ground where the frost
goes deep.    Some of the pipe, which
was in water before the sewers were
built, ia now high   and   dry,   about
three feet under tbe   surface.    None
of the pipes are over five   feet   deep
and in soil such that the frost goes
below   the   pipe.    This   causes   the
ground to heave in   the   bottom   of
the   trench,   the   pipe   pulls   apart
slightly, and a leak starts.   At nearly every leak the fact Is demonstrated that the pipe has pulled   out   of
the collar; because the pipe cloBe to
the collar is clean and   white   showing no coloration from the earth.
The winter of 1912-13 was an extremely hard one on the pipes which
were near the surface. AIbo the
changed conditions caused by the installation of the sewers greatly increased the number, making the total five times what it bas £een any
year previous.

Lacrosse to be played
Joseph Lally, ex-mayor of Cornwall, Ot., was at Cranbrook on Wed
nesday. Mr. Lally is the maker of
those famous lacrosse sticks, and is
doing a bit ot advertising during his
western trip.
In   company   with   school   trustee
Jctqii   Lowrie,   Mr.   Lally   addressed
the boys of the public school, be out
lined plans for the formation of clubs
and   told   how   tbe   national   game
should be played, but was .emphatic
in saying that the game Bhould   not
:be allowed  to   interfere   with   their
studies.   12 gold medals, which were
on exhibition in the display window
of the Beattie-Murphy Co.,   will   be
given to the winning cluh, and each
boy will become a memher of the Canadian   Ameteur   Association.     Mr.
.Lally also Interviewed a number   of
j the members of the   senior   association,   and     the    re-organlzation   of
teams will now go on with n rush,
and we may expect to see   lacrosse
games here during the season.

Young Men's Notes
It seems that tbe victorious Bowlers Irom the local Ry. Y. M. C. A.

that Cranbrook could heat the Lake

these teams offered to meet anything
Cranbrook can put up. Bo a strong
team journeyed this way arriving in
town Sunday afternoon last. The
local banket ball players had no intimation ol their coming hut met the
situation and a game was arranged
for Monday night with the unbeaten
Bankers of the Young Men's Club.
Thc game was strenuoiiB from the
start, both teams an unknown quantity to each other went oil with a

Bankers were playing n steady persistent game, and they soon overtook and passed thc Nelson aggregation, so that at half-time, the score
stood; Bankers 18, Nelson 10.
Tiie second half was a repetition

of the game Nelson seemed to hnve

their efforts to swift passing, with

Brittanic Catechism and is based upon an article on the Imperinl Naturalization Bill, published in the Quarterly Review of   Janunry,   1914,   In I
which the various points are dlBCuss-'
ed in more detail and also with ret-;
iercnce to the different authorities.
I   A good attendance is requited and
an interesting evening may be spent.
(Based on an article on thc Imperial Naturalization Bill in Thc Quarterly   Review of January, 1914, in
which the various points are   discussed In more detail and with ret
ett.ncc to the different authorities).
Q.   What is a British subjcci?
A.   A person of either sex and any
age,   who   owes   allegiance   to   His
Brittanic Majesty.
O. What personB owe allcgionCB to
A. tl) Genernl'y BpeaMn*t, all per
sons born within His Majesty's territories. Such persons are termed
natural-born British subjects; (2(
foreign settlers who, having complied with thc requirements of the
Naturalization Laws, are admitted
to His Majesty's allegiance and receive a certificate to that effect.
Such persons aro called naturalized
British subjects, Iff
Q. Is status or position ot a naturalized subject the same as that ot
a natural born?
A. A natural-born subject Is a
llrltlsh subject throughout the world
but a naturalised subject, it natural
ined in a Dominion or Colony—.ir
even, according to some authorities,
if naturalised in Britain—becomes nn
alien again whenever he or she i-o-s
outside the territorial limits of that
part of thc Empire In which thc certificate was obtained.
Q. Does it follow that aliens naturalized in one part of tho Empire
nre still aliens in another pnrt?
A. Yes; unless In any part It ls
specially provided by local law tbat
perBonn already naturalized in another part of the Empire shall be
locally recognized as British subjects Without havlnc. to be naturalized afresh. There nre suit provisions now in this lnws ol all the self-
governing DomlniotB, but not ln tb^
Inw of Britain.
Q, By whom nro tbe Nnttirnliz .-
tion Lnws made ?
A. By the llrlilsli Parliament for
Britain; by each Dominion Parliament for tlmt Dominion; by the Gov
ernor-in-Council for India; nnd hy
the lorni Legislatures tor the Crown
(j. Are these naturalization Lnws
the samo In ench part of the Umpire ?
j A. Tbey nre the snme In principle,
but not in detail. Generally the en.'.-
<iidni.es for naturalization must boot
good character, mu«t Imve resided n
certain period within the purlieu' :
territory, and must leelare bin r
her intention ol continuing to rwlla
within that territory. The mnln vK.r
latlon Is In regnrd to thc period '■!
prior residence. In Britain it is till
years, in Canada three years, In Aus
tralla and South Africa two years,
while in New Zegland no definite per
iod ls stated in the law.
.. Since persons naturalized In a
Dominion or Colony cease in law to
be British subjects when they go out
side its boundaries,does tt follow
wl_n abroad they cannot claim tne
protection ot Hla Majesty ?
A. No; His Majesty does protect
them. But whereas all natural-horn
subjects receive that protection as
their right, these naturalized subjects receive it only by courtesy.
.. What ls the purpose ol the Nat
urallzatlon Bill which baa been prepared for the British Parliament at
the request ol the Imperial Oonter-
-nce ?
A. To effect a relorm whereby (1)
tbo whole Empire, not any particular part of tt, would be the territorial area within which prior or future
residence ls required; (2) an alien nat
urallzed ln any part ot the Empire
would be a BrltiBh subject throughout the world on the same tooting
sb a natural-born subject, provided
that (3) he or ehe has fulfilled certain standard conditions.
Q.   What are to be  the   standard
conditions ?
A. (1) Good character; (J) Ave
years' prior residence within the Em
pire, provided that tbe last year is
Bpent in the country where the application for a certificate will be made;
or else five years spent In the service
of the Crowu out of the last eight;
(;i) declaration ot Intention to continue residing witbln tbe Empire; (4)
adequate knowledge of the English or
other official language.
Q.   How wlll   the  bill   effect  this
reform ?
A. By (1) amending the local law
of Britain so aa to prescribe the
standard conditions for naturalization ln Britain; (2) meeting lt clear
that persons naturalized thereunder
will be British subjects throughout
tbe world; and (3) recognizing that
naturalization laws passed by the Do
minion Parliaments or Colonial Legislatures will have the same "extraterritorial effect, provided such laws
likewise prescribe the standard conditions.
Q. Muat the Dominions, then, do
away with their shorter periods ol
prior residence, and adopt the five
year period before they can turn
tbelr foreign Immigrants into local
A. No, not necessarily. Any Dominion could, if it liked, retain the
shorter period for local naturalization as hitherto. But. a person natur
alized anywhere after less than Ave
years witbln the Empire would have
to await the completion of Ave years
before receiving the certificate ol a
British subject throughout the world.
j q. What are the duties and privileges nf a British subject ?
A. The whole duty of a British
subject, is as expressed ln the oath
which an alien takes on naturalization "to ue faithful and bear true
allegiance to His Brittanic Majesty
The main privilege is that ot beip
defended by His Majesty against personal oppression, especially when residing in a foreign country, or when
travelling abroad.
Q. But does not naturalisation also give a right to vote, and a right
of free entry to any part ol the Empire?
A. No; each self-governing part ot
the Empire determines lor itself what
person shall be allowed to enter Its
territory, and what persons shall
have the vote. The restrictions imposed by local law on immigration,
and the qualifications reiiulred by lo
eal law for obtaining the local franchise, apply to naturalized subjects
just thc Bame as to natunil-born.
Children, for example, and In most
parts of the Empire, women, do not
have the vote although tbey are
British subjects, and the 1mm gratli n
lnws generally make no distinction
between British subjects and foreigners.
q. Then Uie Imperial Naturalization BUI does not curtail any pow-
° of the Dominion Parliaments ?
A. .'.'o; on the contrary, it extends tbelr powers by enabling them
to pans naturalization laws wblcb
will bave effect beyond their own territories.

Notice to Pre-emptors
There seems to be some mlaundor
standing with regard to the applications for the lands to be opened an
the first of May next. These applications, which are in the form of a declaration, must not be made out before the ilrst of May aR the land is
under reserve until then. It is not
necessary to stake the land, but care
must bo taken tu see that the number of the Lot applied for is tiie one
The declarations may bc made liefore a Justice of thc Peace or Notary Public and must invariably bc
accompanied with the statutory fee
of $2.00.
As tbere seems to be a likelihood
of many applications being made, it
is expressly asked that no applicants
will present their application incomplete, and expect the declaration to
be taken at the Oovernment Ofllco or
alteration or corrections made. Any
inaccuracy may mean the Invalidating of the application!
In the event of two or more applications for the same lot, the applicants may mutually agree ns to
who shall be entitled to it; fulling n
mutual agreement tbe Minister of
Lands may decide ownership.

I nation, to become D living bird,

it has bones and organization corn-
plate.   The white of tbe egg l« B-lbUm
inato of soda, nud the yolk is largely composed of albumen and certain
sUmulating ingredients, including
phosphoric oil. All that la necessary to germinate the contents of a
fertile egg from a breeding ptn ia
warmth and moiature, which the
broody lien or Incubator BUppliea.
It Bhould here   be   explained   that
tlic uncontrollable  propensity    wblch
leads -.rtftin breeds of fowls to become broody and incubate tbeir egga
is due   to   blood-vesBclB   distributed
over the skin of the abdomen, which
become hot and sensitive at   certain
periods of the year.   Relief la obtain
ed by pressure, and   It   la   probable
that the frequent turning of the egga
in the nest—so necessary to prevent
the yo'.': from   settling   down—arise*
from a desire  to  get a cool surface
for the hen to sit on.
It should be further explained tbat
the albumen of   an    egg   forma   the
flesh,  blood,  nerves,  and  feathers of
the young fowl,  whilst the   yolk    la
the material  on   which the fledgling,
if kept warm and sheltered,  is able
to subsist   for   two,   or   even   three
days after it has emerged   from   Ita
priBOn cell.    The bones and scaffolding, or frame work, have still to be
accounted for, for it has been shown
that neither the yolk  or white contains an atom of solid matter.    The
shell, however, is left, and the oil a-
love referred to as containing phosphoric acid.   It is from   theae   that
the bone nnd frame-work are   really
formed, the actual process being that
the phosphoric acid of the yolk eats
up the in.Mior of the shell layer by
layer,   forming   what   is   known   aa
phosphate of lime for the bonea, until the shell  becomes so thin at tbe
one point   that   with   the   slightest
pressure Of the beak the perfectly developed chicken makes its debut Into
existence.    It is interesting   to   note
that had  not the shell been thinned
during Incubation   the   exit   of   the
young bird would  hnve been    impossible.

A group of contractors, under the
Laurier government ,raked ofl nearly nine millions of the people's money without the turning of a sod.
This was possible under men like
Laurier who say that the Borden
government is extravagant,   but the
laugh is with the government.

The energetic manner pursued by
Mr. A. E. Watts, as preBident of the
Boundary Mining & Exploration Co.
Ltd., in protection of tbe shareholders he represents is deserving of the
utmost credit. Wn publish in another column tbe absolute withdrawal
of disfavor that might well be drawn
from the statements published in the
Toronto "Saturday Nlgbt" of March
7th, in respect to the above company
The frank avowal of Ignorance in inspect to western companies ran well
be taken as a surprise to all their
readers, the surprise is that the
"Saturday Night" did not exercise
more caution in describing what they
may have done in respect to other
companies of the west, as can easily
be inferred has been done from the
statement contained in their letter,
"Possibly we nsked too much of him
but it finally appeared that he was
unite inaccurate in many of the reports he sent in, so much so, in fact,
that we concluded it better to dispense witb his services." We are of
the opinion that in future more caution will be exercised iu their judgment in view of the fact tnat they
will not venture to be threatened by
many half a-million suits for damages. We venture to nny, however,
that there are not many papers of
the standing of tbe "Saturday Night
that would be so (rank nud manly
(as Mr. Wntts Bayfl) or Bo prompt in
their complete withdrawal of the
statements made and apologize for
same; for this alone can one only retain the utmost admiration for the
editor in ho doing.

It has come. Awav back in 1901,
when the question of the Dominion
Oovernment assisting the Qraud
Trunk Pacific to build across the
tlnettt, The Prospector predicted that
before the road was completed, there
Would be tbe greatest scandal, m
connection therewith, that ever was
heard in political circles.
Tbe long awaited report of the
Commission, appointed by the Bor-
len government, to investigate the
construction of the road reveals in -
conceivable squandering of the Coun
try's money—how favored contractors were enriched without doing a
stroke of work— the ultimate cost Of
which, to the country, will be $234,
651,000 instead of the estimate of
$61,415,000 by Mr. Fielding wben he
was minister of finance, nnd an excess of $220,000,000 over Sir Wilfrid's
The report of the Committee is as
"We find that the Transcontinental
Railway Commission, the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway and those hav
ing charge of the construction of the
railway, did not consider it desire-
able or necessary to practice or en-
courage economy in tbe construction
of this road, '
"We find that without including
the money which was unnecessarily
expended in building the railway east
of tl..' St. Lawrence river, forty million dollars at least was needlessly
expended in the building of this
The cost to date hns been over
.109,000,000, and when completed,
with interest added, will exceed the
astounding sum of .234,000,000, or
four  times  the  Fielding  estimate.
Back in 1909, Mr. H. D. Lumsden
wns chief engineer of the Transcontinental, aud because he would not
stand for crooked dealings, he resign
ed. His resignation was accepted hy
the Laurier government. In 1903,
Mr. Blair, who was then minister
of railways, when the project was
launched, ami Sir Wilfred had said
"The country can't wait", said on n
public platform, "Cox can't wait".
Mr. Blair's criticisms have l>een
justified, Mr. Lumsden's charges of
graft proven, and the Liberal opposition are now trying to have the in-
|tiiry  squelched.
When 0, M. Hays, the president of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, at that
time, said that the road would cost
in round figures $150,000,000, we were
told hy "Big" Bill Gallagher, who
waa stumping Kontenay as a candidate for parliament, and the balance
of the "big sevens" all said that Mr
Hays was a gross exagjf.rator; yet
we tind that Mr. Blair's and Mr.
Hays' estimates were much more cor
rect. than were Sir Wilfrid's and Mr.
The following are the true facts-
Sir Wilfrid Laurier stated that the
road would cost about $12;000,000 or
The Hon. Mr. Fielding, former min
later of finance, estimated tne cost
of the Transcontinental at $61,415,

"The New or No. 2 tunnel, The new tunnel Is located
"about 1500 loot distant In a westerly direction from
"the old tunnel, its vertical heiuht is 50 leet above
Kettle River. The lirst few teet pass through grnvi'l
"and Iooho rock, when a much decomposed coal scam
"Irom 12 inches to 2 feet is encountered, At about
"50 feet In specks of coal are lound Intermingled with
"the decomposed material forming the Beam, and al
"I0U leet this Rives place to 6 feet ol fair looking coal.
"A fault is then met with ami alter paBBlng through
"It the seam of eoal is again in evldenco at and near
"the face ol the tunnel. The ground is much lUatuvn
"ed and broken, the water percolating through gives
"it a treacherous appearance."
"There are several reasons tor advocating the sluking
"ol a shaft on the property, tho coal will uot be In*
"duenceil hy surface faulting at depth; the hills in
"which the coal measures nre contained are not com
■■posed wholly of the coal bea'rlug strata, but are
"capped with an eruptive rock, the close proximity ol
"which lias doubtless altered the coal to the Impure
"condition it is found In the presout workings, In
"my opinion the coal will he found to lie of purer
"quality beneath the Influence nt tbe eruptive inch,
■and practically but little depth is obtained In the
."seams by driving tunnels, it the Company bail thn
"necessary Capital in hand I would nol hesitate to
"advise the sinking ol n large working Bhaft, for the
"coal showing in the mine today tuily justifles the ex*
"From measurements taken at the surface 1 helii've a
"second ssain underlies the one exposed In the tunnel
"at a depth of about 50 to 60 feet. The Bhaft would
"Intersect this seam also making a total depth of say
"170 (eet. The old tunnel cannot be brought into this
"scheme *f development work without incurring con-
"siderablt initial expense,"
"A  careful and  painstaking examination of the coal
"property  leads  to  tbe  conclusion  that  it  is one of
"very high merit.    Dated, October, 1911.
The above and the two following reports were made
prior to my connection witb the Company.
The following extracts are taken from a report submitted by Archibald Burnett, B.Sc., Mining Engineer, and
is dated February 1910, and waa prior to much work being
done on the property, Speaking of tbe work in No. 1
tunnel in the shaft then being sunk he Bays —
"The coal seam measures between the hanging and foot
"wall 5 feet in thioftness where exposed in shaft A.
"within twenty tive feet along tbe fleam where it out-
"crops. Two samples were taken by me at thiB point
"one across the side of tbe shaft perpendicular to the
"dip, another being a picked sample of the better por-
"tion of the seam near the floor. This made an ex
"Calient coke, hard and firm, considering how near tbe
"surface the sample was taken such a result iB exceedingly promising."
"The plan of development you are at present pursuing,
"viz: of driving a tunnel to catch the coal seam, is a
"very good ons and could not be improved upon. I
"should advise you to continue tbis tunnel until you
"reach the coal, which ahould be In another 40 feet or
"thereabouts, and then to drift along the seam to the
"east and weBt keeping alwayB in the coal."
"In conclusion I may say thay you bave an excellent
"showing, not only ot a possible but a probably coal
"mine, whereas striking the coal in the tunnel, which
"I think iB next to a certainty will give you a property ol great promise."
Soon alter Mr. Burnett's report was written coal waB
Btruck in tht tunnel July 15th 1910, and according to tbe
written report before me the seam had widened out to seven
and a ball leet.
The lollowlng extracts are Irom a report submitted by
one ot the oldest Mining Engineers In the West, Thomas L.
Brophy, late engineer lor Marcus Daly, llis report iB dated
June 25th, 1911.     Mr. Brophy says:—
"In my opinion these extensive shale outcrops will be
"found to be coal at a little depth, the width ol the
"coal measures approximating width of the surface
"outcrop. I have therelore no hesitancy in saying
"that you have nine coal veins on your property as Indicated by the outcrops measuring Irom 9 to 75 leet
"There can be no doubt aB to the lite of these coal
"measures as one system ia underlaid witb another
"system ot coal veins to a great depth. This Held
"possesses all the .usual phenomena ol high grade coal
"districts throughout the civilized world."
At the time ot examination Mr. Brophy reported:—
"About 2000 feet of prospecting work in the way of
"shafts, drifts and tunnels, were completed in proving
"tha continuity of the No. 3 seam on which the initial
"work was done. Ths working tunnel driven Irom
"the flat to cross cut thiB measure has after passing
"through tbe coal continued to cut tbe No. 4 seam.
"The face of tbls tunnel is 400 feet from the portal.
"262 feet from the portal where tbe coal of tbe No. 3
"vein was encountered, drifts have heen extended to
"the Bast and West and a shaft Is now being sunk In
"the west drift, being at this dale down 60 feet'.
"This shaft Is all In conl, and Is showing a widen
"ing of the vein, and a coal of increasing excellence
"as depth is attained. Thus far your conl measures
"appear to be absolutely free from slate bone, and
"your coal may be passed as a high grade bituminous
"free from sulphur and iron with only a trace ol silica
"The waste is a clean ash and volatile matter. It Is
"an excellent steam coal and nothing better could bs
"lound lor domestic purposes. In my opinion you
"have a body ot coal of several millions tons proven
"by the work already completed, and there Ib no _ues-
"tion hut that the seam of coal now being developed
"Is one of the smallest ot your coal fields."
Mr. Keith waa succeeded hy Mr. James Tonhey, a
mining man vith first class certificate and highest testimonials. My instructions to him were "Oo to Midway and
thoroughly examine the mine and give me your candid opinion on the sa:ne in every respect." Extracts trom his re-
portB . >ad as follows:—
"I have now thoroughly eianilued the mine nnd can
"safely say that It Ib a great proposition from a
"mining point ot view."
"Tbe seam at present being worked looks good taking
"into consideration Its d<<ptb trom the surface and thla
"will tarn nut to be all clear coal when we get. deeper.
"Shipping coal could be taken out. prolltably bul. not
"to any large extent.''
"When the slope Is down 100 (eet I would start, a level
"to tbs left in the seam and go In 76 leet, at this
"point I would start a cross mensnre drift ami inln
"sect lhe whole of thc 9 seams. The slope and level
"could continue work as hy lhat time It ought to be
"all coal, miners could then he employed to mine the
"coal at. say 60 cents per ton."
"I estimate, in two months. If the seam continues to
"Improve In the same way as It bas been doing ws
for Easter.

"could be Belling coal at a big profit,"
"There has been a lot of coal sent out with tbe dirt
"and buried but I am now having it put to one side
"and we are getting quite a pile, this coal that we
"are picking out could be gold locally at $5.00 or
"|6.00 per ton at the mine. 1 would like to aee you

The following are extracts from tho report of an experienced coal miner who appeared before a large meeting
of the Directora of your ('ompany in August IttBt and made
a full personal explanation as to what he thought of the
property and also made nn offer to develop© tbe mine as
the following will demonstrate. His statement dated July
4th, 1918, contains the following:—
"1 have examined the mine thoroughly and the two
"seams of coal nn your property. No. 1 seam with
"further development will be ol great valuo to ynu,
"being of u good workable size, .r>_ feet in thickness.
"No. 2 seam 1 Imve also examined thoroughly mid find
"the coal to lie of lliHt class quality. The develop
"ment work you hnve dune on No. 2 vein hns Opened
"up a large body of coal which proves to my know
"ledge ti) bc permanent and that sufficient prospecting
"on this vein him been done. 1 would suggest thnt
"you start a permanent Blopo at or near the black-
"smith's shop, size 7 by 9 feet in thc clear. You
"could hoist through this slope 400 to Min tons of conl
"per ('.ay. If this work is commenced at once I could
"deliver your coal on the market by the first of Octo-
"ber. 1 am in a position to take a contract from
"your company to sink the Blopo or drift and do first
"clasB timbering to the depth of 300 feet or more ns
"your Company may desire. 1 would require the Com
"pany to furnish me with all necessary machinery and
"supplies. 1 will carry thin contract through for
"llO.fiO per lineal loot nnd will uccept payment of 10
"per cent iu shares in your Company at 35 cents per
"share, money nnd shares to be delivered as the work
"I have Worketl In coal mines for thc lant thirty-five
"yearn in Delgium, Germany, Pennsylvania, Washing
"ton, nnd Alberta, and as to my conl mining ability
"I can give you all the tf'fcrencrs you require.
"In Conclusion I will state ynu have a good property
"thnt will bo a great benefit to the present holdera
"If handled In u practical way."
