An Imposing Ceremony
Carried Out.
VERY  BRIEF   SERVICE
Archbishop of Canterbury Officiates,
Starting With Lord's Prayer-
Large Assemblage Present.
London, May 17.- The body of
King Edward VII, the Peacemaker
was taken with stately pump this
morning from Buckingham place on
the first stage of its Journey to the
grave, and now lies in state In Westminster Hall where hundreds of
thousands will pay a last tribute to
the dean monarch before the march
through the streets of the capital on
Friday.
FROM THIS PALACE
Thc procession from Buckingham
palace to Westminster Hall passed
througn double lines of red coated
soldiers, flanked with rows of stalwart policemen nnd a mass of silent
black garbed humanity. The German and other embassies in Carlton
house terrace were covered with funeral palls of black and purple, relieved occasionally by green wreaths
and boquets of white lillies. The
first intimation tb«t the crowd which
had been waiting tor hours had of
the approach of the funeral cortege,
was the booming of the first of the
68 minute guns, which were fired at
St. James Park, followed hy tho
tolling of "Dig Ben" the great bell
ln the clock tower ln the house of
commons, which heretofore has been
heard only as it Btruck the hours,
and the roll ol muffled drums. Then
a guardsman, with sword reversed
came down the hall with measured
tread, the other guardsmen lollowing close behind. Then came the
officers of the headquarters staff, the
army council and the board ol the
admirality. Alter these appeared
the troops came to a half salute
with reversed guns and remained
thus until Field Marshals Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener, the admirals of the fleet, the Indian orderly
officers in black uniforms and the
aide-de-camps oi the late King had
passed.
THE   GUN   CARRIAGE
As the gun carriage on which the
casket was borne approached the
order to "rest on your arms" was
given sharply. With heads bowed
the soldiers kept their eyes on the
ground while the body ot their late
King passed by, coming to attention
again lor the Royal Standard, which
was carried immediately behind the
casket and ln Iront of King George,
who like the officers and other members of royalty was ofoot. The Duke
of Cornwall and Prince Albert, two
little figures in the natty uniforms
of the naval cadets, followed their
lather. King Frederick of Denmark
and King Haakon, with the Duke of
Connaught between them came next
and then followed the other members
of the British and foreign royal fain
Hies in gorgeous uniforms, the only
touch of mourning being the black
'hands on the sleeves of their coats.
An array of officers of thc late Kjiik'h
household nearly all of them in
bright uniforms, but a few In mourning, followed.
THE QUEEN DOWAOEIl
The greatest interest of the crowd
was aroused at the approach of thc
first carriage, for ln this rode the
Queen Mother Alexandra, to whom
the hearts of all Britisher's have
gone out during thc past week, Hor
Majesty, woaring the deepest mourning had lifted her veil and the people reverently raised their hats to
the pathetic figure who even in the
hour of her great grief acknowledged
the silent testimony of sympathy by
bowing repeatedly. Tho Queen
Mother was accompanied by her
sister, tbe Dowager Empress Marie
ot Russia and her daughter tbo princess royal and Princess Victoria.
Queen Mary occupied the second carriage, having lor the occasion surrendered tbe first place to which as
Queen, she was entitled. Her Majesty was preceded by the sovereign's
escort, the only mounted troops participating, with thc exception ol a
lew stationed along the route. Queen
Mary was accompanied by her daughter, Princess Mary and Prince Henry.
Seven other state carriages bedecked
and drawn by heavy capraisoned
horse, carried the ladies of the royal
families and thc suites of the Queen
Mother and the Queen. Arrived at
the palace yard of Westminster,
where a dense throng had gathered,
the gun carriage stopped and thc
palls were removed and the hearer
company composed of Uie Guards,
fitted thc casket and carried It Into
the hall.
BROUGHT TEARS
The dominating   characteristic    ol
the procesBlon was the impressive
simplicity. There were 12,000 troops
on foot and mounted and 1,000 sailors along thc route, but In thc pro
cession itself the largest body ot uniformed men was the massed bands of
the Guards regiments numbering 250,
which played funeral inarches. Upon
leaving Buckingham palace a corps of
Oil drums played a special introduction
at the conclusion ol which tho mass
ed bands took up Beethoven's funeral
march. The most featured part of
the musk was provided hy a body
10 pipers who played "Flowers ol the
ForeBt," as thc procession passed
Marlborough House, the music bringing tears to tho eyes ol many io thc
great crowd. Passing the Horse.
Guards parade, the bands played
Chopin's "March Kunebre," and as
the procession approached Westminster ball tbe strains ol Handel's
"Dead March Irom Saul," were
heard,
MOVING SPECTACLE
The spectacle at Westminster Hall
during tbe briel service when the
casket was deposited there was a solemn and moving affair of deep contrast. The casket rested high on
the purple catafalque In the centre of
the hall covered with a white and
gold embroidered pall and draped
with the Royal Ensign. Upon the
ensign were placed the jewelled
crown, the orb and tbe sceptre,
THE MOURNERS
King George and Queen Mary stooil
at the foot ot the casket with the
Queen Mother and Crown Prince.
Behind them were the members of
royalty who followed the body and
a grou pof 18 royal ladles in deep
block with long veils, no touch of
color relieving their garb, which was
of the simplest and most sombre
that mourners wear. Around tbis
body were stationed the officers of
the court of the royal household, the
Earl Marshal, Black. Rod, Silver
Stick and others in their brilliant
uniforms. On long rows on either
side extending nearly the length of
the bail were marshalled the peers
and the members of the house of
commons, more than 400 from each
chamber. All of these which included many of Great Britain's foremost
statesmen were ln formal black dress.
The others who made up thc great
assemblage which filled the hall
formed a shining field ol color in
which gold and scarlet predominated
The choir, surpliced in white and
crimson occupied an elevation at the
south end ol the hall under the vast
stained windows. A step lower were
stationed the red coated bandsmen;
the heralds and their pursuivants
occupied a still lower position, but
well above the floor and the entire
group suggested a chorus on the
stage.
GENERALS AND    ADMIRALS
Grouped at the loot of the elevation were a hundred of the greatest
generals and admirals of the empire.
In the centre Lord Kitchener, tall
and dark, towered over Lord Roberts
who is short and grey. Nearby was
seen the grim lace ol Lord Fisher,
old time senior lord of the admirality. At the opposite end of the
hall was a great congregation of
courtiers and officers, picked men,
the finest appearing In England and
wearing a dazzling array of uniforms
and decorations.
SERVICE   SHORT
The service occupied only half an
hour. The Archbishop of Canterbury
standing at the head of the casket,
started tbe Lord's prayer, which was
taken up by the whole congregation.
The archbishop then read the twenty-third Psalm and the Dean of Westminster read the scriptural lesson
from St. John at the fifth chapter,
twenty-fourth and twenty-fifth verses
At the conclusion of the reading the
choir chanted a briel anthem and the
archbishop offered n prayer.
ARCHBISHOP'S    PRAYER
He said: "Lord, our Heavenly
Father, by whom kings reign and
princes decree Justice, we remember
before Thee our late sovereign lord,
King Edward, in thankfulness for the
blessings thnt were bestowed upon
us through his reign, for the wisdom
of his rule, and the faithfulness with
which he served the people committed to his charge, for his continual
efforts to further aud maintain peace
among the nations of the world and
lor his watchfulness of the sick and
poor."
REASON   FOT THANKSGIVING
Addressing the congregation the
archbishop said there was reason for
thanksgiving for the peace and prosperity of the empire and for a ruler
who was devoted to his people. He
charged his hearerB to consider well
the lesson that death teaches.
As the archbishop concluded the
trumpets and drums sounded' and the
choir sang "Oh God, Our Help in
Ages Past," the accompaniment
ceasing alter the first stanza to be
renewed with the last. As the music
died away the archbishop pronounced the benediction.
KNELT BESIDE COFFIN
After the benediction the Queen
Mother Alexandra, who had been
seated ln a purple covered chair
while tho others stood, rose and taking a step forward, knelt beside the
casket and with hor hands clasped
remained for a moment in silent
prayer. Rising she beckoned to her
aon to escort her, and moved slowly
down the aisle bowing slightly as
she passed the guards ol honor who
Btood statue-like on either side.
Queen Mary lollowed,  also     bowing

Assailants.
VICTIM ON THE STAND

Witnesses Examined  Case Adjourned Till Wednesday.
Fernie, May 18.- The celebrated
holdup case at Coal Creek occupied
the attention of the court all day. J.
R. Rouf was the first witness to go

purpose of identifying certain plans
of the road taken by J. W. Quinney,
the mail who was robbed, and the
general outlay of tbe land and after
that Wm. Steward, clerk In the Royal Hotel, Cranbrook, was called to
identify Nat Babcock's signature in
the register of the hotel.
HANDWRITING   EXPERT
Geo. Bell, manager of the Fernie
branch of the Imperial bank was called as an expert on writing and gave
it his opinion that a certain letter
produced and purporting to have
been written by Babcock was in the
same handwriting of the hotel register. V. O. Clausaen, who was book
keeper in the Trltes, Wood company
store at Coal Creek, at the time of
the robbery, gave evidence as to the
amount and denomination of the bills
which had been handed over to J. W.
Quinney, to be transferred to the Fernie office.
VICTIM IN WITNESS BOX
J. W. Quinney, one of the victims
of the holdup next took the stand.
He stated that as usual he had come
to Coal Creek from Fernie on the
evening of February 9th to take the
money down to the head office, and
that while walking from the store to
the station he and his companion
Baird were held up by two masked
men, who took all the money and
other valuables they had. He wns
unable to Identify the men as they
were masked and the collars of their
macklnaw coats were turned i.p. He
explained how he had tried to stop
the mine train immediately after the
robbery, but waa unsuccessful and
then had telephoned to the police in
Fernie.
W. R. Ross, K. Oi, counsel for the
defense, put the witness through a
severe cross-exanination that failed
to shake his evidence to any material extent. The court adjourned at
5:30.
The case was adjourned Thursday
till Wednesday next.

CRANBROOK VS. MOYIE
Beaoh Win and Lose One-Peroen-
tage 500
The Cranbrook base ball team went
down to defeat, at Aldrld-ge Park.
Moyle, on Sunday last.
Moyie shut Cranbrook out, the
score being 4 to 0, in favor of the
silver city team.
Chrysler pitched a great game getting a total of 15 strike outs.
Crnnbrook waa kept very busy
keeping cases on thc umpire who was
raw, and> watching a shed close hy,
that a ball lodged on, giving Moyie
three runs.
AT CRANBROOK
Cranbrook won from Moyie on
Wednesday by a score of 5 to 4 In
their favor. The game was mangled
In a way tbat made a    number   of
"fans" sick, beside being chilled to
the marrow by a cold north wind
which prevailed during the entire
game.
Moyie went to bat, and made a
single score, Cranbrook getting tbe
'same old goose egg.
With the north wind still blowing
freely, Moyie secured two runs iu the
first of the second, and it looked as
If they had cinched the game. In
the second half Lundherg started the
fireworks, and Cranbrook hy good
batting placed four runs to their
credit.
Moyie secured another run In the
fourth and Cranbrook, just to be in
line, done the same trick. It was
getting dork and cold, and the gam.'
was slow, the pitchers being content
with no runs being made by either
team.
Following Is the score by im.ings:
Cranbrook 0 4 0 10 0—5
Moyie,  1 2 0 10 0-4
The batteries were Chrysler and
Paultn for Moyle; with Lundherg
and Call for Cranbrook.
James Bates umpired the game in
a most satisfactory manner.
GOSSIP   OF   THE   GAME
Lundherg   pitched excellent ball,
Neilson was good with tbe stick.
There ls no use in putting a "kid"
on first base,   its a man's place.
It was Just a case of hard tuck
when Cranbrook lost that game at
Moyle.
It is said that Manager Small was
, wearing a ISO smile at the end ol
game Wednesday.
Sullivan was determined that the
umpire should know that there was
| a man out on third.
There is always a lot of hoodoos
at a hall game, and it takes a wise
guy to side-step 'em.
The manager of thc Cranbrook
team should see that a rope is
stretched, to keep the fans off the
i field.
MASONS MEMORIALIZE
Memorial services to our most il
lustrious sovereign-brother King
Edward VII., was held on Friday
May 20.
Members of Selkirk Preceptory met

servic preached by the Rev. W. P.
FlewelUng. The hymns and sermon
were appropriate tn the occasion.
After the service in the church was
concluded the craft returned to the
Masonic Temple, and closed their re
spective lodges.
KIPLING'S POEM
Kipling has In the London Standard, a poem entitled ,4The Dead
King," the argument of which is
summed up in one line.
"Our king asks nothing of any man
more than our king himself has done.
The   concluding stanza   is    as fol-
lows:
"We accepted his toil as our right
None spared, none excused him
When he was   bowed by his    burden
his rest was refused him
We troubled his age with our weakness, the blacker our shame.
When he heard   that his   people   had
need of him.Btraight way he came.
As he received so   he   gave,   nothing
grudged, naught denying
Not even the last gasp of his breath,
when he strove for us dying
For our sakes, without queati'-      it
put from him all that be cherished
Simply, as any other servant,he serv
ed and he perished.
All that kings covet was his, and he
all turned aside for us.
Simply as any that    died in his service, he died for its."
The poet In an envoi bids him:
"Who in the realm today has choice
of easy road or hard to tread,
And would sell his soul to remain in
. the sun, depart nor   look on our
dead."
HAS   BEEN   CANCELLED
The sports arranged by the Cran
brook Park association for May 24,
Victoria Day have been cancelled,
owing to public sentiment that In
view of the King's death there should
be no celebration on that day.
A. H. Watson, of Fernie, who has
been confined to thn Ht. Eugene hns
pital for some weeks, is now about
again receiving tbe congratulations
of his many friends in Oranbrook,
Judging from the work going nn
in tbe building line and from the
work that haH been completed, the
man who says Cranbrook Is not a
go-ahead city is evidently one who
Is not, to say the least of it, obuet
vent. If development counts for
anything Cranbrook's space on the
map must be enlarging every year.

SEE COMET WHEN
MOON IS ECLIPSED
Best View on May 23—Head and Tail
Then Visible for Period of
Nearly an Hour.
Halley's comet has now practically disappeared in the morning sky,
and will reappear ln the west just
alter sunset following the earth's
Imsuage through the tail ol the comet, on May 18.
On May 19 the comet's head will
set 21 minutes after sunset: on May
20 the interval will be lengthened to
1 hour and 17 minutes;'   on May 21,
2 hours 19 minutes: on May 22.
23, :i hours and 4C minutes. Thus
the comet will move eastward from
the sun quite rapidly and ought to
bo visible in tbe western sky after
May 2f, The upper end of tlie tail
may be visible on May 19, but as the
moon is nearly full It is doubtful it
ii can lie seen in the strong moonlight. The bead ot the comet will be
brightest on May 20, but the strong
moonlight will cut down the light ol
(he tail; and this difficulty will exist each evening till May 23, when a
total eclipse ot the moon will occur
sn.l enuble us to see both the head
nnd tail ot the comet in the dark
sky tor an interval of 51 minutes. It
is during the eclipse that we may ex
pert to get tbe best view ot tbe
comet, and everyone should be on the
watch lor both eclipse and comet.
MOON'S    ECLIPSE
The Important elements ol this total eclipse ol the moon are as to!-
Iowa:
Beginning the totality May 22, al
8 p. m.. local time. Middle of the
eclipse. May 23, B'.SO p. m., local
time. Total eclipse ends ut D',50.
local time.
Thus Irom a little alter 8 o'clock
thc moon will tie in total eclipse and
the comet will show both head and
tail above the. horizon. On May
23 the sun sets at about 8 p. m., and
ns the comet follows the sun by 3
Injurs and 46 minutes tbe head will
not Bet on this date till about ten
o'clock iu the evening.
Accordingly. Irom hall past 7 till
hull past 9 o'clock, when the moon
will he nearly covered by tlie earth's
Bhadow in space, on the evening ol
Monday May 23, everyone should
wntch lor the eclipse and tbe comet,
ns both wlll he visible at a very sen
sonftblc hour ol the night. It may
lie a long I one before we aguln see
the two such wonderful sights.
Director Campbell of the Lick observatory on Monday,   gave out   the
following:
"Halley's comet was 90 degrees
long at daybreak this morning, both
as photographed and as observed by
the nuked eye. This corresponds to
u length of 24,000,000 miles. The
neurest point of thc comet was
11,000,000 miles from the earth.
Tuesday morning it will be nearly
7.000.0CO miles away; Wednesday
morning a little over 2,000,000 miles,
and Wednesday evening the earth will
be passing through Its tall. Tbe present diameter of tbe tall Ht the point
through which the earth will pass
is a little over 1,000,000 miles.
■ The two bodies will have a rela-
! tive velocity of about 43 miles per
second; and tlie time required for the
i passage, if the present dimensions
j remain unchanged, will he r> or 7
hours. Astronomer Atkin's observations on the position of the head of
the comet Tuesday morning and
Wednesday moring leave little doubt
i that the sun will hnve set for Pacific
coaBt observers before the head begins to transit the disc of the sun.
The tails of thc comets usually lag
! behind the straight line drawn Irom
I the sun through the heads, for some
; comets hut little and lor others several degrees. The exact time that
tbe earth will enter the tall Is exceedingly uncertain by several hours.
ATMOHPHEltK WILL PROTECT
It is true thnt comets are the most
mysterious bodies in the sky and
that miinv important questions concerning their origin and constitution
remain unanswered, We do know,
however, that the tails nre so highly
attenuated that the most perfect
laboratory vacuum is extremely
lense m comparison, It is probable
that both minute solid particles and
Isolated gas molecules are present in
the tails, the proportions of solid
particles to gas molecules varying
in different comets. It seems to be
rt conservative estimate flint there Is
not more tluin one particle or mole
ciile, microscopic In slue, on the average cubic.
The earth's iisinuepllere will form
a perfect protecting blanket against
all possible constituents of the tall,
There is absolutely no cause or oi-
cune for anxiety ns to injurious el
(ects upon the terrestinl life, animals
ol   vegetable.
The earth has passed through the
tails of many comets in past centuries and such an event is of great
scientific Interest, but not attended
with danger.
It is unfortunate that tbe moon,
nearly full, will interfere with optical observations of the phenomena
attending our passage through tbe
tall. If the moon was absent, there
is little doubt tbat we should be
able to see tbe night sky faintly illuminated by that part ot the tail
which projects beyond the earth. Because of the possible and probable
lagging of the tail there is a chance
tbat we may still be tn the tall the
latter part ot Wednesday night and
that some evidence of its presence
may be seen at Bhort Intervals between moonset and dawn Thursday
morning. It is not expected that
thc event will be attended by a meteoric display to any extent. There
will probably he no more meteors
observable on Wednesday night than
on nther nights.
NO DISTURBANCES
Astronomers of the Lick observatory have been credited in newspapers
with the opinion that the telegraphic
service will not be affected. We
have never expressed such an opinion.
It would not be surprising it telegraphic transmission were interrupt
ed or interfered with, as during
aurorac. It is not impossible tbut
delicate apparatus will be able to
detect magnetic variations due to
the presence nl electrified cometary
particles In the highest strata ot the
earth's atmosphere. There might
even lie an aurora ol considerable
intensity, owing to the electrically
charged particles visible to tne eye
or made apparent by observations
of its spectrum.

START ON K. C.
Tenders to be in Hands of Officials
at Vancouvei by End of Month.
Vancouver, May 28.—An early start
on construction ol the Kootenay Cen:
tral Hallway Is indicated by the decision ot the C. P. R., to immediately call lor tenders for work. It is
reported that bids will be required
to be in the bands ot officials ot the
company in Vancouver by the end of
the present month It is understood
tbat this means the starting of the
work tbis summer.
At the outset but 25 or 30 miles
ol work will be awarded and contrary to the general expectation construction will be started on the soutli
end of the line instead ot in tbe vicinity of Golden at Northern end.
Several years ago, 18 miles ot grading was done south from Golden, on
the main line of tlie C. P. It., hut
steel was never laid on that section.
Thc Kootenay Central, following
the valley of the Upper Columbia
and Kootenay rivers, will link the
main Hue of the O, P. It. with the
Crow's Ne»t branch, traversing a
valley reputed to be rich In mineral
and agricultural resources.
At Its southern end, Uie railway
will join the ('.row's Nest brunch at
u point some miles eust nf Cranbrook, near Galloway. Last year
representations were made to the 0.
P. II. by the eltiiiens of Cranbrook,
wiih ii view of having that town
made the Junction point. The company caused surveys to be made, but
It was found that the route to Cranbrook was Impracticable and Gallo
way will he made the junction.
From Galloway the road will run
to Port Steele, thence along the
valley ol the Kootenay to Canal
Plat, past the upper Columbia lake,
and down the nppor Columbia river
tn Golden.

One Good Investment Worth a Life-time of Labor
Here is an Opportunity for the Man of Small Means
This advertising aiinnuneemont is especially directed to such renders of this paper us are honestly interested in their future; men and women who are not
living altogether for today, hut who have before them
u definite anil llieil purpose, and so shape their destiny
each day, by word and deed, so that at some date not
far In the future they may lie able to achieve the crowning event of their lives.
It Is only human that wc should each desire to
have in our/ own name much of this world's goods,
sufficient at least to provide for comfort an* independence during our old age. It is quite true that only
a lucky tew attnin this position in the days ot their
youth.
Are you satisfied with your future prospects?
Do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that
within three or live years' time you will amass a lor-
tune?
Could you say to yourself, right now, that In
the next 18 months you will have practically made or
saved Irom the investments which you are making today sufficient funds to provide for yourself and lamlly
a comfortable living for ten years' time?
Millions from a Few Dollars in Oil
Cbanslor and Canlleld wore both poor prospectors. Realizing the great possibilities and future of
the California oilfields, they placed their savings In
the oil Industry and arc today rated as multi-millionaires.
Sfcd'. Phillips, lour years ago lost September,
alighted trom the train in the Coalings Field, and was
the possessor ol $23. The magic "23" did not disturb
him; he was the proud owner ot a million dollars'
worth o! grit, nerve and energy. He worked bard,
saved his money, and did things. He invested his
earnings in the oil fields and as a result he is now
worth a quarter of a million.
It would be difficult to devote much space to
such men as Doheny, O'Donnell, Cbanslor, Hardison,
Stewart and thousands of others who through small
Investments in the great oil industry ot Calilornla became men ot wealth.
Don't Sigh and Regret-
Do Something
We often look, back and think to ourselves that
had our toresight been as good as our hind sight, we
would have done differently. This looking back to
disappointments that have passed iH particularly interesting in connection with the California oil fields.
Others Have Made Money
in Oil-Why Not You?
The following 1b a list of "IPS" that are opening
investor's eyes to the possibilities ot California oil
shares:
If you had invested $10(1 at ground floor prices In:
Silver Tip,     ynu could have made I     600
W. K.     you   could   have made    1.000
Sterling,     yon cuiild have made    1.000
Premier,     ynu   could    have   made 1.100
Monte Chrlsto,     you could    have made    1,120
Itocnrd,     ynu could have made.   2,000
8. P. ft McK,     you could have made    2,400
SauerDough,     you could have made 4,166
Lucille,     you could have made    5,000
San Joaquin,    you   could   have made    5,700
Peerless,     you could have made    6,350
Kern «tv§f,     you could have made    9,500
Central Oil,     you could have made    15,000
II ynu had purchased Pinal Oil shares at 25 rente
per share, you could have sold at 125 per share; it
pays a regular monthly dividend of 15 cents per share;
a monthly income of $60 on an original investment of $100.
When the "Silver Tip" well in the Coalings oil
fields came in, this stock Jumped in one night trom 60
cents to |4 and has been paying a dividend of 10 cents
per share ever since. This is recent history having
occurred but a short time ago.
You have the same opportunity today ln the
Coallnga oil fields and plenty ol them, but you must
thlnkj, reason and analyze for yourself before yon can
hope to acquire your share ot the world's wealth, and
must have tbe courage of your own convictions AND
ACT.
Advantage of Investing in
Oil Securities
It Is stated by the best of oil authorities that 96 per
cent of the wells drilled In the proven zone of the
Coallnga field produce oil. You must therefore realize that the element of risk in an oil investment Is
practically eliminated. Furthermore, placing your
money In oil companies means quick, and in most
cases, large returns, particularly so ln cases where the
Companies are operating in shallow territory which
assures inexpensive drilling and quick action on the
Invested capital.
Crude oil at tbe present market price is being
purchased Irom the producer at siity three cents per
barrel at the well, Mr. Aubrey, Calilornla State
Mineralogist, states that oil at $1 per barrel is cheaper luel than coal. Two and a halt barrels ol oil are
equal to as luel a ton ol coal, so that quantity of oil
at a dollar a barrel or $2.60 is the equal ot a ton ol
coal at |8.
Taking the lederal geologists figures as a basis
lor calculation, there is at present in the Coallnga
District oil worth $2,000,000,000. The great Comstock
mines produced only $645,000,000.
The Property of Coalinga
Eureka Oil Company
Close   to   Great
Gusher Well
The holdings ol ths Coalinga eureka Oil Company consists ot eighty acres, situated in Section 24,
Township 21, South, Range 14 Hast, Fresno County,
Calilornla, separated by only two sections trom the
lamous Section 6, tbe home of the great "SILVER
TIP" gusher and ol the Lucille, Amy, Pacific States Oil
Companies, etc, all ot whom rank foremost among the
big producers ol this great field. 8ectlon 18 adjoining the Coalinga Eureka property la the scene of unequalled activity. Derricks have heen built, tools
hauled out and drilling operations are being carried on
with relentless energy. It is the undoubted opinions
ol experts and practical oil men that Sections 18 and
24 are destined to produce some nl the most remarkable wells in the Coalinga field. B. W. Preston, probably the best expert in the whole ol the Coallnga
Bald, and Superintendent ol ths Consolidated Oil Company (.which adjoins our Coaltnga-Rnreka property)
also General Manager ot the New York Coalinga and
Aladdin Oil Companies (all producing) writes regarding tbe property ol the Coalinga Eureka Oil Company:
''You ask me to give an expert report on your
"land in Sections 24, 21, and 14. I have Just returned Irom a very careful examination of the property.
"You have the same identical formation that has made
"the entire West side of the Coalinga field famous.
"You are sure to get good wells at medium depth.
"This property adjoins our property and 1 have been
"trying to purchase this same tract. While I regret
"tbat we were unable to procure it, I cannot retrain
"from congratulating you on securing such a desirable
"piece ot oil lands. It meana success to your Company."
Plans of the Company
It Is tbe plan ot the Company to drill and complete at least lour wells during the present year. These
wells, according to tbe output ot the wells on adjacent
property, should have an average yield ol 400 barrels
per well, or 1,600 barrels per day, 48,000 per month,
which would enable the Company to pay DIVIDENDS
TO THE STOCKHOLDERS OF FROM 3 TO 5 PER
CENT PER MONTH besides holding ln reserve a large
sum of money for further development.
Stock and Disposition of
Funds
To complete the first well, tbe Company Is placing on the market a block ol 50,000 shares ol Treasury
Stock, fully paid and nonassessable, at 25 cents per
share; when this stock Is disposed ol, the price will be
materially advanced.
Tbe money received Irom the sale ol this stock!
wlll be expended in developing the property, and not
ln fancy salaries.    There are no salaried officials.

Washington.
HON. W. H. KERR, the Vice-President, Is an ex-
Superior Court Judge of Fresno County, Calilornia.
Judge Kerr is one ot the first settlers and pioneer operators in the Coalinga field. It is tbe concensus ol
opinion that he is today the best inlormed person re
local conditions in the Coalinga Oil field as well as
one of the ablest oil experts and operators in ALL the
Calilornia oil fields.
Judge Kerr will take care ol all development
work on the Company's property, giving lt his undivided personal attention, thereby assuring good Judgment and conservatism in the management of tbe Company's field operations.
A. ROLAND, the Secretary, is one of the early
operators in the Coalinga oil field and is prominently
identified with the oil industry throughout the State ol
California. He Is a man ot unquestionable integrity
and superior Judgment.
E. Y. ORA8SBTT, one ol Vancouver's most
prominent Contractors, a native son oi Ontario, well
known ln social and commercial circles ln Toronto

versant with all matters of finance, and from the man
ner in which be has succeeded in his own business, has
been elected to the Board ol Directors of this Company.

be a master of finance and a very capable business
manager.
So promising are the holdings ol this Company,
so good the prospects ot tbe same, that eminent geologists and oil experts say that the Coalinga- Eureka
Oil Company will bring Into existence in the very near
future oil wells which wlll produce enormous profits
lor the shareholders.

FIELDING  AND  PITT
William  Pitt refused    to accept
testimonial--Mr.      Fielding    accept
one.
United States Saves Blueflelds
In the course of the dlgcunlon un
Mr Fleldlng'i $120,000 Mr, Morthrup
quoted two exceedingly telling ex
tracts from Stanhope's Uie uf tin-
meat Wilham l'itt Thev nit as
follows:-
"It  was  well   known   hy   the  public
that Pitt would not be continued Brunswick
one hour in ottlce hy the regent It
was well known that ho had alreadj
taken measures for returning tu his
first profession. It was also known,
perhaps, that his neglect of his private affairs had "involved hnu tn
some debts, which he trusted to dis
charge by an industrious application
of his talents at the ba; At this
very time, however, there was held,
by public advertisement. a meeting
of the principal bankers and money
ed men of London, anxious to ten
der him on his retirement from (.dire
a substantial mark of their esteem
The sum of £50,0CO wad first prupos
ed, but, so great was the enthusiasm
tbat in the space of forty-eight
hours this sum was doubled, and Mr
George Rose, as hus secretary ol tbe
treasury, was requested to press upon bim, tn tbe manner most likely
to be acceptable, a free gift oi
£100.000. But Mr. Put answered
his friends as follows "No consideration upon earth shall ever induce
me to accpt it."
That was in 1789, Later on in 1801
Mr. Pitt was about to step down
from office to begin the practice ol
his profession. He was at that time
loaded with debts.    The writer says
"So long as Mr. Pitt continued In
office bis creditors were content to
wait. But when they learnt that he
was resigning, and that two-thtrds of
his prenent income would be lost,
the impatience of some among them
could no longer be restrained, The
demands upon Pitt grew to be of the
most pressing kind. There was reason to apprehend from day to day
that an execution might be put onto
hLs house*; that his rooms might be
left without furniture, and his stables without horses. He. determined
on the sale Holywood; but considering the heavy mortgage on that lit
tie property, ita sale could only af
ford him on the balance a most
scanty sum.
"Pitt, was too proud to utter a
word of complaint even to his near
est friends. But they, and even.
though In a less degree, the public
at large, soon became aware of the
extremities to which he was reduced
 Next there was a   renewal of
the generous offer which the merchants or London mAde Mr. Pitt in
1789. A deputation from them wait- {
ed on him to state that they had j
already subseribed for his use a sum
of one hundred pounds, which should
be paid into any banking-house which
he chose, and so that no one should
ever knaw the name of any one of
the subscribers. This noble gift was,
however, as nobly declined. It (said
Mr. Pitt) he was ever again tn office,
he should always feel abashed and
constrained when any request was
addressed to him from the City,
lest by non-compliance he should be
thwarting the wishes of some among
his unknown benefactors."
This wasi tbe standard set by Pitts
poor, and about to quit office, be
refused the gift. Mr. Fielding remains in office and takes the gift,
it has been asserted and has not
been denied that among the givers
were Sir Edward Cloustin, General
Manager of the Bank of Montreal
($'.,000), several other directors of
the Bank of Montreal, Mr. J. H.

THE    PAST    SESSION
At the conclusion of the session of
the House of Commons Mr. R. L.
Borden 'urnished to the press the following telling summary of its work
nml its results:—
The occasion permits only of the
brief «rt reference to the past session.
Its outstanding features were the
Government's naval policy, the tar-
Hi negotiations with the Government
uf the United States following the
ratification of the French treaty, and
the admission of the Government as
to the enormous and ever-increasing
cost of the National Transcontinental Railway
The Government refused immediate
and effective aid to the naval forces
of the Empire, and pressed through
Parliament a measure providing tor
a navy which" would

war will    take no   part

The United States are waking up
tu the (act that Canada is fully competent to conserve her natural re
sources lot the use Ol her own people. Time was when popular opln
ion in the United States tended to
regard Jack Canuck as a hewer ol
wood and drawer of water fur Uncle
Sam But certain expressions of
opinions oi a contrary sort that are
now continually cropping up in the
American press show that this attt
tudc towards Canada is fast giving
way Here is a sample from tbe
editorial columns of the American
Forestry  Journal.
"Canada Is measuring her timber
resources and preparing to protect
them by progressive and drastic
measures against exploitation for the l
benefit of wasteful foreign countries,
Including her next door neighbor. We
cannot look to the north for our sal-1
vatioii. We must husband all our re-!
malning resources and plant trees
wherever they can be grown more
profitably than other crops, in order
that our future may be assured. Canada has not the resources for ber
own needs and ours too, and she ii
sufficiently wide awake and intellv
gent to guard her own. The only
way that our timber resources and
Canada's can be made inexhaustable
is hy the application of the highest
scientific knowledge and the broadest
common sense,"
May EnW Cabinet
An Ottawa dispatch says: The
chief object of Sir Wilfrid Lauder's
visit to Quebec next week is to see
Sir Lamer Gouin, premier of the
province regarding his coming into
federal politics, with a view of his
being adopted as Sir Wilfrid's successor in the leadership of the Liberal party.
Hon. W. S. Fielding is regarded as
an impossibility owing to the
antipathy ot Quebec towards him.
and it seems to be felt that the only
man who can hold the party together Is another French Canadian. Of
these Sir Lomer Gouin is the strongest.
It is fully anticipated that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will go to the polls
at the next general election but that
he will drop out immediately afterwards if meanwhile he can secure a
successor upon whom he can depend
to keep the party together. Gouin
will he offered Hon. L. P. Brodeur's
portfolio.
