Ottawa, Oct. 17.—The Evening Journal, of thla city has an article in tonight
under ihe heading ;d "The department
of interior making a careful and intelligent choice of the location of coal in the
Crows Nest."    This article is as follows:
There is every prospect of a warm time
over the selection of tbe 50,000 acres of
coal lands which Ibe Dominion govern
meiit ib entitled ty select from the Crows
Nest Pass tract iu British Columbia.
For the past two weeks there has been a
stream of people coming into Ottawa
representing the Crow's Nest Coal company aud the Canadian Pacific railway.
The coal company, the railway and the
department of the interior are all concerned in the question ol the selection
ot the lauds. The Domiuion govern*
raent has the lirst right of selection with
a proviso thai ihe lauds selected ure to
be of equal value with the remainder of
the tract. The Canadian Pacific Railway company is said to be extremely
anxious to come iu for » share. The
Crows Nest Coal people want to get
ahead of the Canadian Paciffc, and hot li
are anxious to get ahead ol the government.
' The present position of affairs," said
an official who has had something lo do
willi this matter, ''is that ilu- mn istei 1 1
tbe interior is determined lo aster) bis
right to protect the Interests of the government and the people by selecting the
best coal lauds Unit can be found. In
so doing the department docs not pro-
j pose lo be guided by the Influem e ol the
railway compauj or the coal company.
The idea the government bad in retain*
I mg control of 50,000 acres of coal lauds
iu this region was to  guard the interests
uf Canadian consumers so that they
would not be called on to pay an txor-
bilant price for their coal, as tbey readily might be il all the coal bun's were
left in the bauds of railway mid coal
companies "
For Iwo yeais the geological experts of
the department of the lulerioi have been
examining the tr-tci with a view ol making provisional selections J 0 Turriff,
a Dominion land commissioner, and Mr.
Penrce, tnspecioi of surveys, and for*
marly superintendent of mines, h ive
also made an examination <
mnl so thai there should be no mistake,
Col Taylor, au eminent coal mining engineer from Pittsburg, V. S , was engaged to report ou what the Canadian
officials had done.
Judging Irom the Interest thai the different parties are  taking in the matter,
and the amount of trouble that the department is Inking to avoid the possibility of a mistake) there is likely to he
some dissatisfied people when the selection is completed; and tne present appearances would Indicate that the railway company and the coal company
will be the disappointed ones.

Indian Financiers.
A rathjr novel sight was the spectacle
of some 150 bead of Indian cay-uses bem^ j
driven through the town last week ■•
Tbey had been purchased by an eastern
buyer and were speedily shipped fur
eastern poinls The animals were a
molly ci llectlon, every variety of color,
age, etc , being represented, the "wall
eyed pinto,'' perhaps, predominating.
According lo age, llie prices paid varied
from J2 50 to $10, making a total of
fyji 50, which sum was handed 111 grt-eu-
backs lo the Indian known as Luke. As
die division of lhc mouey was a matter
of somewhat serious moment, and altogether ol a tialtlre so intricate that many
■.. bite men would have been puzzled,
each vendor having sold a different
quailtttyat the various pricet. A "pow

the whole pri CeedillgS Uiere war. not one

Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perlect Fitting;
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we pui material in our suits which some tailors
would not think,  of  selling  al   less than double our price.
