She Is One ol tlm Best towns In
Itritisli Columbia.
A Commercial Traveler  Expresses
His Opinion ol the Town
and District.
A talk with any travellug man who
visits the principal towns ui British Columbia, will bring forth one opinion of
tO-aiil.rt.uk, uud that Is that it is one of
the very best towu8 of its size in tbe entire province. And the opinion of u
commercial traveler on matters of this
kind is always reliable, for it is their
business to keep their fingers on the
commercial pulse of every town in which
they transact business.
A few days ago The Herald man had
occasion to discuss this subject with one
of the oldest aud most conservative
traveling men ou the road. Speaking of
lhe depression now felt throughout llritish Columbia, he said: "Times ate
quiet, but it can't remain this way very
loug. British Columbia has the resources
to make many prosperous towns, and it
is only a question of time when the development of these resources will bring
about a radical change in the situ ition.
Hut I lind that Cranbiook is not suffering from the depression like most uf the
towns throughout the province, I attribute this fact to its fortunate location
and its varied industries, of course, being tbe divisional poiut and headquarters ofthe Crows Nest Pass railway, ami
tbe junction of tbe North Star branch,
It is sure each mouth of a large and
steady payroll. Then there is the lumber industry of which Cranbrook is the
business center, nnd that brings here a
large revenue tbe year around. Again,
it must he taken Into consideration that
Cranbrook is so situated as to receive
the benefit of any movement in the pur
rounding towns Your merchants, owing to this fact, are enabled to carry
larger and belter stocks than those less
fortunately located. This Iu itself is a
great trade drawer, and contributes to
the solid prosperity of Craubrook. With
revival ot business, the other towns
in the distiict are bound to go ahead,
and with their progress will be found an
ucreasing volume of business lu Crauhrook."
"On what do you base a revival of bus*
ness in Cranbrook?" The herald man
That is easy. I base it on lhe fact
lhat South l.iist Kootenay hat today
greater and richer resources than any
district   I   know   of iu the province.
i have vast bodies of ilch minerals,
as is demonstrated by the St, Pugtne,
Sullivan wild Xoith Siar mines, to say
nothing   of   thc   many   properties   that
have been developed far enough to show
beyond a question of a doubt that these
proven mines are not the only rich properties iu the distiict, ami that further
development work will give many mote
valuable shippers. There Is the St,
Marys valley, that is bound lo be one of
lhe richest section-. Ill the district and is
sun- to get a railroad within the nexl 15
nonthfl. This will mean that Cranbrook will bo located in South Kast
Kootenay aim liar  to  Nelson  in   West
Kootenay,   tin*   natural   center   of   the
whole territory.
"Tbe railroad Interests here are Increasing, and the force of men employed
will be naturally augmented within lhe
nexl year, wliuh of course will mean a
correspoudlug increase in the monthly

aoiirce of revenue. You have four mills
uml a factory right at your tloor, which
alone would support a fair sized towu,
and the increase of business in this line
in the other towns will bring still more
business lo Cranbrook.
"Aud then look at the vast coal areas
lhat are being opened up in the district.

Hon. George Turner member of lhe
United States senale from tbe state of
Washington, was in town Monday anil
Tuesday with Mrs. Turner. Tbey were
returning from Marysville where Mr.
Turner had beeu to look over the smeller iu that place. Mr. Turner is a democrat aud during the past session of congress has been recognized as an aide
eader in the senate, where bis ability as
a speaker and a statesman has made a
strong impression. True to the traditions of the parly he represents, Mr.
Turner stands for a radical reduction iu
existing tariffs and legislation that will
exert a control over the increasing trusts
thut are now thriving in that couutiy
under republican rule, lie Is conservative in bis ideas, yet he believes and advocates those piinclples that will give to
the masses their rightful heritage in a
country where it is possible for the few
to amass such riches that amaze even
the money kings of the old country. By
instinct aud nature opposed to his government departing from iis recognized
constitutional prerogatives, he believes
it far better to extend the trade territory on our own continently meaus of reciprocal relations, rather than to involve
his country in a war of conquest to secure colonial possession*.. Speaking of
Canada aud ber six million people Mr.
Turner said he had hoped to see legislation that would break down the commercial bearer between the two countries, as Canada's population was worth
more Irom a commercial standpoint to
the United States than all the island
population that his country had sacrificed thousands ol lives and millions of
money to possess.
"If the factious of the democratic
party in the Stales would get together
on those Issues that are live issues today," said the senator, tbey could win."
The tariff ami the trusts are tbe issues
that directly affect the people of the
United Statesi and on those issues the
democratic party would be victorious.
Speaking of South Bast Kootenny and
Craubrook Mr. Turner expressed himself as well pleased with this section of
the country. It is Mr.. Turner's llrsl
tsit and she was delighted with ihe
beautiful scenery presented to view and
the delightful climate.
The new vault for tbe Canadian Hank
Of Commerce is nearly completed. We
re anxious about ibis Improvement and
hope the work will soon he done. An
editor's bank balance is the source of a
lot of worry, aud wheu we kuow ours is
safe in a tire proof vault, we will be able
lo sleep at nights.
One ofthe ladies who took part in the
entertainment at the Presbyterian church
last Monday night, suid to a Craubrook
lady: "I don't suppose there are six
people in Craubrook who have heard
' rhe Holy Cily?' " Why, bless your innocent heart, little girl, don't you know
that m .st of the west is populated by the
brightest aud most energetic people of
the east, who have lefl c.owded cities to
seen llieir fiirlunes iu the laud of the
selling sun? Ami yet, many people
from the east imagine lhat section of lhe
country has Morganized all that is left
of human intelligence.
An Attempt Is Being Made To llring
About Arbitration.
Trouble Is Causing; a Business Depression From Fernie to the
Boundary Country.
The only new feature hi the Peril le
coal strike is the fact that representatives of the Associated Boards of Trade
ol the Kootenays are in session iu Pernie for lhe purpose of inaugurating a
movement thai may bring about an arbitration of the difficulty and a settlement of the strike. Yet there is little
hope of any such result, as the coal
company has taken the sland that it
proposes to run its own business in lis
own way.
Under ordinary circumstances the
stand of the coal company would he
right.    Hut   when   the   policy   adopted
means ruination, or iucalcuahle loss to
the merchants of Penile, the dislrict of
South Ivns I Kooteuay and those sections
having mines, lhe running ol which depends upon the successful uud continual
operation of the smelters, then it is ti
question whether the coal company
should be allowed to use its own policy
iu the transaction of its business, Rs*
pecially is this true sii.ee the coal company has secured its great wealth by unheard of liberality on tbe part of the
government in the way of mineral bind
The Herald Fully appreciates that capital should not be handicapped iu its development ol latent resources, ami would
never advocate a policy that would have
that effect. Hut it believes iu fairness
and justice to the men and lo ttie province. The Crows Nest Coal company
hus been a great dividend payer. It is
in a position to arbitrate and make concessions. Tt has been a supplicant for
government favors from iis birth, aud
the basis of its prosperity today are the
favors thus received.
The merchants of Fernie nre entitled
to serious consideration, and the least
the coul company can do is to protect
their interests. The freezing out of the
meu uow employed und the Importation
of a cheap foreign element means ruination to Pernie ns a town, and the complete ascendancy of the coal company iu
the coal belt of that portiou uf the province.
The miners at Michel have returned
to work and coal and coke are now being shipped in limited quantities from
Morrissey and Michel.
Coaslderlag the Strike.
Representatives of the Associated
Boards of Trade of tbe Kootenays are
meeting in Pernie today to see if anything can be done to bring about a set
'lenient of tbe coal strike.

Rosslaud Miner: William Blakemore,
engineer of the great iron properties at
Kitchener, was in Rossland yesterday
and spoke entertaiuingly lo a repre-
senative of The Miner of the coal and
coke situation in this part of the province caused by the strike at Fernie. Mr.
Blakemore speaks from a thorough
knowledge of the situation,
''The strike uow under way at Pernie
is assuming more than local significance," he remarked. "Considering
that the supply of coke to run our
smellers must come from the ovens at
Fernie it is a matter in which all the
people of the Kooenays are interested,
hight hundred men have already been
thrown out of work in the boundary
country by the closing down of mines
and smelters, with lhe certainty of another hundred going before the enJ of
the week by the Boundary Palls smelter
closing down. Furthermore, the Trail
smelter cannot run many days longer
without a fresh supply of coke, which
means the enforced idleness of at least
■loo more men. The Norlhpoit sine.ler
receives its coke Irom Peinie, and must
close down when its present supply Is
exhausted, While you iu Rossland can
probably get coal from Roslyu it comrs
at a slight advance in cost, while there
are other cities and towns in the Kootenays that are not so favorably situated
iu this regard and must do without.
"These are the facts and conditions
that face the people. We are all innocent sufferers. Il is like the main spring
of a watch, when broken the whole
works stop, livery man, woman ami
child in tbis part of lhe province is in-
leresled. It is not confined to the mine
operators and workmen ai Pernie,
"In lhe face of the facts and conditions above slated strikers ami mine
owners should get together anil settle
their differences. If that fails the government can do no less lhan to cause lo
be opened tip a portion of lhe 50,000
acres of coal lauds   now   held   as a re
serve and break up the monopoly held
by lhe company at Coal Creek. The
company operating at Femle were given
an Inheritance never equalled on the
face of the earth. The 50,000 acres of
coal land held by them constitute a mine
of inexhaustible wealth that seems likely to endure for all time. If they cannot
agree with their workmen and cannot
supply our smelters with coke the reserved lands should be thrown open and
give us our coal and coke from them.
If this were ilone possibly more willing
Ingness would be shown by all parties to
come together and settle their differences.
"It is not a pleasant sight to look at
smokestacks that show no activity within, or to see enforced idleness around our
big mints. The merchant, lhe business
man, the professional man, the laborer,
lhe fanner, alt trades and conditions are
affected end matters will grow worse until lhe thing is settled iu some way.
"It is unfortunate lhat the close-down
should come on tbe heels of the great
disaster there, and still more unfortunate
thai tbe innocent public should be made
to suffer."
Situation In tht' Boundary Country
Phoenix Pioneer; Let us review the
situation, which we hope will he In process ol adjustment before these lines
are before our reader, lloundiy smelters require about 880 tons of coke per
day (or llnxlng purposes. This coke
must come from Crow's Nest collieries
where we were told not long ago there
are Illimitable quantities of the black
diamonds. Boundary ores are of such
low grade that the coke must be laid
down at the lowest possible rate to ail-
mlt of the ores being sinelteil at a small
proilt. Therefore only Crow's Nest coke
can be uscil to advantage.
Afler the horrible accident of Mav 33
at thc coal mines, without notice or
warning tlie new manager posted notices that thereafter the miners must
come ami go to work on their own time
—a custom lhat It Is claimed has never
been iu vogue in the coal mines of B. C.
Thereupon the miners Immediately quit
work, aud thereby prevented the large
majority of the workers lu this section
from earning a living : ami if the strike
lasts any length of time brings ruin to
thousands ami thousands of innocents—
Individuals who have ami cau have
nothing 10 say In the matter,
Millions of tlollars are investeu here
and thousands of persons are dependent
on the mining Industry for a living—
none to guuo at the u^st. Even the C

heavily by such a strike—probably 83,
000 or 83,000 per day, to say nothing of
the number of men It gives employment
to in the ore antl coke carrying traffic
All of these Immense interests are dependent upon the whims of a few share
hohlers or a few employees in the Crows
Nesl. This Is certainly ..ot as It should
As to the remedy—'.hat ts a large
question, We think this trouble will be
settled at no distant date, but it should
be settled permanently. There are apparently two ways to settle it for all
time to come. One of these Is the plan
of Soclalisis-that is government ownership. This will take years to biing
about—and it may not he in our time.
The other Is for mine owmers thus at
thc mercy of the owners of the cok?
supply, to acquire coal mines of their
own fiom Which they can control the
supply for their own reduction works.
This we believe will be ttie ultimate
outcome of this trouble, and the trouble
may he found lo have been a good thing
after all.
The Coal Mines sl Johnstown, Pcnn., Take

Johnstown, Pa., July 10—Johnstown
has again been visited by ac appalling
disaster. It Is only less frightful than
tbe awful calamity of May 81, ISSfl, in
loss of life. Km It has brought sorrow
to hundreds of homes made desolate by
a mine explosion which took place In

o'clock this afternoon. How many are
dead may take days to determine, but
that It Is a long list Is ceilaln, It may-
reach to BOO or more men.
Johnstown, Pa., July tl—This has
been a day of heroic rescues at the Rolling Mill mine of the Cambria Steel
Company. Thrilling experiences atten
ded the efforts of the 40 brave men who
went dowu into the shaft with a very

'•The work of completing the smelter
t Marysville will be carded forward
without delay.''
This statement was made to The Herald man last Monday by United States
Senator Turner of Spokane, president of
the Sullivan Group Miring company,
who had just returned from Marysville,
after giving the properly there a c.ueful
I am satisfied that we have an Ideal
location for the smelter," said Senator
Turner, 'and although I was not pleased
with some of the woik done by our former superintendent, yet that can be easily rectified by the expenditure ot additional money, and the plant made just
what ii wan intended to be an up to-date
smelter. I am returning to Spokane ami
Mr. Hull,  who represents the eastern
stock holders, goes with me A meeting
of the board will be held, and the plans
aud estimates sttouiiucd by out new
stiperinleuileut for the completion ofthe
plant will be con side ret'. Jus: as soou
as these details are agreed upou the work
will be Instituted and rushed to completion. It can be gotten ready to blow iu
within 60 days after we Start, We have
kept on with the other woik about tbe
plant, so it is only changes in tne structures that wiil take any time."
These statements by Senator Turner
will prove good reading to lhe ptople of
the district, Sicce work started on the
smelter {everybody was interested as
it meant the secret I tuccess to South
Hist Kootenay. This district seeded
smelters at home, and the Marysville
project was to fill this want. The delay
in construction ha? been ('.•.scoura^iu^,
but now that everything b .-. beeu settled
it looks better for Marysville and for tbe
whole district.
James Ryan's Idea ol It* Consiruciion Has
Beta   MnOkstcd.
For the past two years James Ryan
has maintained lhat a road could be
built lo the St. Marys river by the draw
back of St. liugene hos-pitai that would
greatly lessen the distance to Perry
creek, and give a cut oil route to Marysvllle that would save a distance of several miles. Last week A. W. McVittie
volunteered to survey tbe proposed
route for Mr. Ryan, to istttle lhe question. Tbis generous offer was accepted.
and the survey made, and much to air-
Ryan's delight his pel idea has been
shown to be practicable.
The purvey leaves Cranbrook at the
St. Kugene hospital and follows the
gulch to the summit and down to Prank
LeClaire's ranch where it intersects the
present Perry creek road. Following
up this road about one—quarter of a mile
a clear road is then found to the river,
where there is an excellent location for
a bridge. Mr. McVittie says that the
route will make ar. ex .O.ei.t road. There
is not a bad bill from Cranbrook to the
river, and the worst grade is not over 2
per cent, except the short approach lo
the river bank, and that would not be
over 4 per cent. The balance from St.
Marys river to the Perry creek road is
5523 feet, and lhe route is a good one as
it Jstands, except about $00 feet to the
river approach. Then tl.e route follows
the Perry creek road 1767 feet to carry
it by LeClaire's ranch. From that point
to tbe corner of Ryan's hotel it is just
7,1 miles, and of this part about one
mile is a fgood passable road »t Ibis
time. In the whole distance there 11 an
aggregate of about two miles that will
cost about $500 a mile to put in shape.
All of lhe rest can be built for less than
$100 per mile. The distance from the
river to town is about eight miles, with
an excellent grade all the way. Hy the
old route it is nearly 11 miles And
with a bridge (which could be put iu for
less than $5000, the distance to Marysville would be shortened between six
and seven miles, or about 14 miles on
lhe return trip.
Considering the lar^e amount of travel
there is no question of the necessity of
tbis improvement, and The Herald
hopes that the government authorities
may be brought to   view it in that light.
Cranbrook owes Messrs. Ryan and
McVittie a debt of gratitude for what
they have done in this matter, Without their efforts the question would have
remained unanswered.

Ou account of a question of 30 minutes a

Billy McAdains of the Sandon Pay-

Premier Ross' majority in Ontaiio has

God pity the people if the Pernie Coal

The rending of the conditions thnt prevail in lhe roil fields of Pennsylvania ti

on miners as being nothing less than
slaves, llritish Columbia does nol wanl
such conditions to prevail here. The

One of the cleverest mine experts on

Calgary. He would have been here uow

this expert will arrive in Calgary, and
proceed from here to the coal fields
Should his report coincide wiih the information which has already been received by the company respecting thc

into the coal lields, A diamond drill

the markets at a cheap rate.
