t.lined thnl the people ofCauatla did not
fully realize Ihe immense wealth uf Ibis
province, und yet there nre people wbo
seem to appreciate the worth and Importance us a held of investment. In
Eastern Canada one will nenr a grent
deal nbout Hritlsh Columbia, aud remarks lhat have a tendency to injure
the province wllh the stranger who has
capital to invest. And yet it is a fact
that tins beeu proven, that Hiiiish Columbia to-day is one of the richest provinces in the Dominion, and a most
promising field for the investor. During
tbe latter part of this month, a party of
New Yorkers, have been investigating
the possibilities of this province. It
consisted of William J. Itrewer, Lli
Mirandon, John K. Tylee, Frank, Auger,
William Oaede and II. Charles Royce,
Senator from Vermont,

ascertaining tbeir future value, A uum-
ber of the tatter mines are situated adjacent to the better known properties,
aud in a number ol cases, it is claimed,
are more accessible to railroads,
Senator Royce is more thao enthusiastic relative to the future of British
Columbia iu general and her products Iu
'llritish Columbia ia practically unknown," aaiil Senator Roj leJOOCOOver*
satiou with The New Yoik World correspondent, "aud Its resouices bo far
discovered are almost limitless. Development only will produce the results
necessay to show that Ibis vast territory
contains greater Blares than any other
country iu the world."
"Do you represent I-.asteru capital?"
"Yes, and it is for tbe purpose of Bub-
tauliatiug the statement made by promoters lhat the present visit to British
Columbia is made."
Senator Royce smiled when asked to
state tbe amount of lhe capital -subscribed to develop the lesser—that is those
mines not so familiar to investors iu copper properties,
''Capital sufficient lo develop mines to
practically any extent." said the Sena-
ur, "will, I believe, he forthcoming pro*
iding the mines visited will bear investigation."
It wns learned nt the Windsor hotel
tu .lay that what promises a most pow-
erlul rival ta the Copper Trust will providing the conditions warrant, follow
tbe visit of the party to the copper
mines of British Columbia.
A well-known Monlrealcnpitalist,who

The proposed trip of the party of
which Senator Koyce is a member involves nearly H,uou miles through one of
lhe most wild ami picturesque regions,
a part of British America almost unknown except to those whose interests
in industrials takes them bo far from

the ground allows il lo be very neb, but

The Herald is pleased to know tbat
the coal deal in which M. Mclnnes and
A. Mullet are interested bas developed
to that stage where it is now an assured
fact, 10 far as the permanency and extent of the deposit is concerned. Mr.
Mclnnli, speaking of the matter this
week, said: "We have 5,000 acres of
coal land in our property, and have demonstrated that we Lave six seams in
place. These Kami are clearly defined
and can he traced aloug lhe mountain
side Ior four miles, The property is on
tbe north fork of the Michel, and so
situated that a road can he built to it
from Crow's Nesl with little ur no grade.
We have spent considerable money demonstrating what we have nnd now we
are ready to talk builneii. Our cnal is
of the coking quality, and il is estimated by experts thai there aie millions of

The Herald desires to slate that In declining that llie work would proceed it
depended   upon  the word  of those in
authority, and was entirely innocent of
Intentional misrepresentation. In fact
it was not settled until a few days ago
as to what would be done. Tbe eastern
stockholders, indignant over tbe reckless expenditure of money, determined
to do nothing toward raising more
money unless ihey bad coutrol. Tbey

Nelson, It. C , Sept. 30, 1902,
Editor Miner: Owing lo some divergence of opinion as to the best means to
be adopted for tlie encouraging of silver lead mining in Kntish Columbia, I
desire that the mine owners fix a time
and place for the discussion of this subject, and also as to the admission into
Canada free of duty of all mining supplies and machinery not manufactured
lu Canada, and the loweriug of duties
on certain other mining machinery
manufactured in Canada.

views thereon to aid me in my endeavor
to bring aboul conditions most favorable to the mining industries In my constituency.

boards of trade and smelter men and

Cranbrook contractor, Htnounting to
nearly $30,000, and Mr. Nevin got it in

There wus a time when the settlers at Moose Jaw, N.W.T., proposed io get theu anothei  name, In the
beliel that the prospects of the tuWu
were Injured by such n buck-lll-the-
WOods title al Mouse Jatt There
is no such idea now. The Moose.
Jawlans are proud uf their town,
name and all. It Is largely a railroad centre at present, being the
divisional houUquartera for n lung
stretch of the main tine uf the Ol1.
H, ua well as (he Sou line lending
down into Dakota.    H bus •2.200 ut
US comfort ahlc-luuk ing people a»
there are in western Canada, the men
tall and bronzed by r.tpusun to the
winds of the prairie, (he women pretly and fund of line clothes.
Mouse -law is ensoul lally a home
tuwn, with a tins situation ou the
noi then 1 bunk of the st renin from
which it takes III inline, uud which
affords opportunity for boating at
favorable seasons.    How young it Is
may be best learned from lhe statement of a gentleman of n statistical
turn of mind, who said that when he
caina to the town in 1805 there were
only eight unmarried young ladles
above sixteen yean, while ihere were
but ween 400 nml Mio unmarried men.
The chief Import for a long while
wus young ladies, uud now in Moose
Jtiw, according to one uf its merchants, it is necessary tu carry a
large liu* of bub.v carriages, children's chairs and similar goods.
Moose Jaw is rather proud uf Its
flour mill, which bus 2-10 barrels
daily   capacity,   and   runs    day    and
night. Mr. I'on.ibi McLean, the
miller, had tha distinction of so
whetting the royal appetite when
the Princess of Wales was at Calgary
last tall und tasted soma biscuits
mad* from his (lour lhal her Iloyal
Hlgliim.-.**  specially   ordered   a    barrel
to be sent lo the royal bakery. In
connection with the milling of Hour
bet* it Is tu be noted that the bulk
of tha product finds its way inlo tbe
ranching country tu the west, and
into tbe mining camps of llritish
Columbia. A portion of the wheat
also goes west, so that there was
very little ot a wbe.it blockade lust
fall In tbt lloose Jaw district, Including the town itself, and four outlying elevator paints. The production was loraiewliat over a million
bushels in the dislrict, 200.000 bushels being turned into flour at home.
Between the town and country trade
the merchants are vary prosperous.
The greatest natural advantage is
th* wonderfully productive suil of
the district. Chanting the one thing
needful, moisture, of which there has
not been aay lack lu recent years,
there seems to b* no limit to the
productiveness nf th* laud which is
a rather still clay, without lhe black
■iirface would of the Indian Ileud
district. The average wheat yield
last year lu the district was .I.'i
bushels to the acre, probably 95 per
cent, being No. 1 bard, of a peculiarly bright color much sought afler by
millers, and produced, It is believed,
as a result of the dryness of the air
during lha season of ripening. A
yield of 50 bushels of ihis sort of
grain in spots here nnd there means
enormous profit to thu grower.
Tha return to the fanner, when
everything is dowu to the lowest
basis of cost, will b< most gratifying. Even now ther* Is nothing tu
grumble over. Her* are some good-
luck stories : A farmer last spring
bought a quarter section of laud,
agreeing lo pay 91,020. He put 100
acres of it in crop, und got uu aVer-
age of 40 bushels, his money reiurn
being over $2,000. Another crop
like thut will ilium than pay for the
land and leave a handsome surplus.
Another man, uu Englishman, near
prinkwuter, on the .Soo line, bought
soma laud lust May, planted eighteen
acres of flax about the first of June
and gut twenty bushels ol Hnx seed
iin acre, worth over 91.00 per bushel. The crop gave enough net profit
to pay for his quarter section. Another incident Is even more remarkable. A farmer some liltle lima
ago, -whan things were not quite so
good, offered his land to another for
91,500. The offer was refused, bul
tbe mnn wbo refused it said be
would glv* the owner half the crop
for the privilege of working it fur
th* llaion. He paid 92,200 as the
value of the half-crop grown iu one
year on lulid he had refused to buy
outright for 91,500. Th*sc are in-
stansH thnt the reader may be Inclined U think exaggerated uml exceptional, and iu smut measure they
may ba so, but Mr Amiable and
other reputable business men say
thut three good crops In Ibis district will more than pay for the land
on which thoy are grown at the
present price of good farm propei ty.

JT England Is Unquestionably the X
of the world. The best products of the plantation find their way to that market and from
there are distributed all over the world. The
fact that the masses get a good tea at a reasonable price has much to do with the popularity of
the beverage. The consumption of| tea on the
American continent is yearly increasing, as the
imports show, and the demand is for a good article, not a tea dust nor a cheap, coarse congou,
but a leaf that will brew a mild, mellow, fragrant
cup ol goodness. That is what we claim for our
G. T. R. tea. It is carefully selected and judiciously blended. There is a pleasing quality
about it that "touches the spot" for tea drinkers.
We invite you to have
Afternoon Tea with us Saturday, Oct. 11
This invitation is extended to every lady in the
