Cut on the arm which left a gash some

Coleman. Alia .Julyl'fi.���The cur shortage has once more reached an acute
stage In ihe I'uss und unless a permanent remedy Is found and that without
great delay lhe west Is Mkely to find
Itself up against as bad conditions this
winter as last If not worse.
The car shortage situation extends
over nearly the whole of last year but
became acute about this time und continued so throughout the rest of the
year. Canada ktiows the consequence.
This yeur the C. P. K. let it be known
that there was going to be no car shortage at coal mines and led the mining
cosopunles of this district into making
preparations for a continuous capacity
run for the season. Notable among the
companies that have gone to large expense In anticipation of an adequate car
service, was the International Coal &
Coke company of tills place. This company double shifted Its mine, incurring
11 very large expense to meet the demands for conl on lhe strength of the
representations of the C. P, H. that It
would provide the cars and move them
when loaded yet lhe mine has been
closed the last three days for want of
cars and for Borne time previous has had
only a moBgrc supply. In addition when
cars were provided lhe loads were not
moved wiih sufficient expedition lo keep
the lards of the companies clear . In
one notable Instance :iuo loads between
Prank ami Coleman waning for motive
power to move them while the yards of
lhe companies were clogged.
The other companies of the dlslrici
have suffered proportionately with the
International company in the matter of
want of cars and as said, unless n solution of the difficulty Is found the hardships of last winter arc bound to be repealed aud nre very likely to be seriously augmented.

Washington. July 25.���Interesting developments are promised in the near
ruture in connection with the settlement of the indebtedness of Venezuela
to what are known as the "non-preferred" powers, under The Hague arbitration In 190*1. On the first of the
present month Venezuela will have paid
the last of the judgments assessed by
The Hague tribunal In favor of the "preferred" or blockading powers, meaning
tireat  Hritaln,  Germany and Italy.
Under these terms of the arbitration
the claims of the oiher powers, parties
lo the case, namely, America, France,
Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway, and Mexico, are to be
discharged by u series of payments
based on the segregation of 30 per
cent, of the customs receipts of the
IKirls of l,u Guyru and Puerto Cabello.
Hut advices have been received lhat
Venezuela Insists on repudiating
tiie awards of the arbitration board in
two cases, from which serious trouble
may arise. These are, flrst. the claim
of the General Company of Caracas ta
llelgiuu corporation operating the waterworks), aud second, the Marline/
claim, preferred by Mexico, the Venezuelan protest iu both eases being based
on tbe allegation that the judgments
were excessive. The danger tn the situation is tuut the admission of the
Venezuelan claim would be an opening
wedge lor the repudiation of all the
awards, and constitute a heavy blow at
lhe whole principle of settlement by arbitration of pecuniary claims.
Meanwhile. America Is rather turning
to her own account the Venezuelan ef-
rort to reopen the arbitration by seeking to have adjusted by arbitration the
claim or the Qrlnoco Steam Navigation
company, an American concern whose
concession was destroyed by Presldenl
Castro, although the Venezuelan claims
treaty or Feb. 17. 11103. in its second article expressly provided that all claims
to be considered by the arbitrators
should be submitted within 30 days from
Ihelr flrst meeting.
It wus tbe Intention or The Hague
tribunal that these "non-preferred"
claims should be settled pro ratu. but
much doubt is entertained as to the
e unse that Venezuela will elect to pursue when the flrst payments become
due. Already there are rumors that concerted action will be necessary on the
part of the claimant powers to secure
the execution of the judgments.
Misguided   Fanatics  Marching   In  Quest

Warsaw, Ind., July 25.���Elijah Hays, a
philanthropist aged BO, whose death was
announced last Sunday rrom n local pulpit, is still alive. At his homo yesterday
he walked to a window, roll and cut a
severe gash In his head, but Inst nighl
was said to be much alive In spite of
the obituary printed on Monday und the
Call Monday morning. The undertaker
called lo embalm the body and round
thai Mr. Hays was alive but In n comatose condition. The nonagenarian revived, and today was able lo leave his
bed unassisted. In 1887 Mr. Hayes gave
all his property, amounting to $100,000,
lo the Methodist Episcopal Foreign Missionary society for use in the education
of preachers at the Nicholas Law Institute ul Mercedes. Argentine, South
America. After this gift ho received nn
annuity from the church. In 1004 ho
turned over to the foreign mission society of Ihe Methodist church $21,000,
which ho had saved out of this annuity.

passed hero yesterday on their way lo a
fairer, brighter land where there is nb
soliiiely no work and no cooking to be
done, und where everybody is u vegetarian and non-combatant. Emacl-
ated as they were by tl%ir long walk
from the northern hills they entered the
gloomy defiles or the Hiding mountains
this evening undismayed and Btire In
their hope of reaching a peaceful haven
somewhere south of Winnipeg In the
plains of the Dakotas.
It Ib a positive miracle how such attenuated old people and tender children
could make such a long Journey as they
have, having already come two-thirds
of Ihe distance from the Doukhobor reservations in the Thunder Hills on their
journey to Winnipeg. They confidently expect to reach Neepawn, 117 miles
from Winnipeg, on Sunday, where a
tiugo day of praise and thanksgiving
and much bean and onion eating,
washed down by copious draughts of
spring water will  be Indulged In.
They announce lhat they are only the

Swan river reservations who havo not
yet moved out.
Volcanic Island Forming.
Sydney. N. 8. W., July 25.���Reports
Irom the Tonga Islands say that seven
columns of volcanic eruption were visible at sea lor two weeks recently trom
tho Island of Tongalabu within an area
of two miles. The eruption has been
accompanied by a continuous roaring
noise aud frequent explosion. lilack
pumice stones in large quantities were
thrown us far us Nukalofa, the capital
of Tongntttbu, a distance of 30 miles.
The Tongnn government gazette stutcB
that hind Is forming around Ihe Bcene
of the eruption und It Is believed that a
new island Is in the process of formation. The Tonga or Friendly Islands,
are In the Soulh Pacific Ocean, lying
southeast of Fiji. In October, 1886, a
violent submarine volcanic eruption
took place about 48 miles northwest of
Nukulofa, resulting In the emergence
of an Island nearly three miles la length

Acclsimed by  Divorced  Women Whom
He Has Saved  From  Delay���
Old Tax Remains.
Paris, July 24.���Premier Clemenceau
looked as merry as a schoolboy the other
afternoon when he left the chamber of
deputies with an elastic step und
Jumped Into bis auto car, which carried
him off rapidly to bis modest apartment
In the Rue Franklin. The parliamentary vacation will last until the middle
of October. Mr. Clemenceau knows
that the country Is with him In the firm
but patient manner in which he is dealing with the wl���e growers' insurrection
In the south, but he is quite ready to
show an autocratic hand whenever necessary. He Is glad to be at last free
from the running lire of interpellations,
questions and attacks to which he has
ben subjected during the last six weeks.
The slgniticant feature of the concluding debate in the chamber was the
adroitness with which It. Clemenceau
refused lo be drawn into the trap of
making the income tax a ministerial
Issue, and the masterly manner in
which he killed the unpopular measure
by causing It to be postponed to the
Greek kalends. This course wus due
to the reports received from the chamber of commerce ot sfianet every important town In France, protesting against
replacing the old and tried system of
taxation by an experimental progressive income tax. as drawn up by M.
Callaux. minister of finance to which
not only the present cabinet, but also
nearly 2oo deputies had pledged them
selves. But M. Clemenceau, with char
uctetistlc decision, did not hesitate to
shipwreck the proposed income tax law
the moment he saw that public opinion
was against it. In doing so he scored
the latest of his half-dozen victories.
Upon If. Clemencean's initiative the
old taxation system was voted by a majority of 4G5 against 60. This means
the death of the Income tax law In
France  lor unother  year.
The closing day in the chamber was
marked by thi presence In the galleries
of over a hundred young and exceedingly attractive women, w-ho hud come
to listen to the debate on the abrogation of article 206 of the civil code, pro
hunting a divorced woman from marrying again until ten mouths after the
date of the decree by which her divorce
was obtained. M. Clemenceau, glancing
rapidly at the visitors' galleries. whlB-
pered a few words lo the speaker of the
chamber, and forthwith tho abrogation
of article 2116 of the civil code was
voted Upon without debate and replaced
by an article permitting divorced wo
men to marry immediately upon the receipt of the decree according divorce.
M. Clemenceau sicured a majority on
this measure, merely by a show of
hands, of fully nine-tenths of the depu
ties present. The bevy of smartly
gowned women In the gallery became
rrantlc with delight, nnd In the next
few weeks some 400 weddlngB will be
celebrated which, but for M. Clumen-
eeau's prompt Initiative, woujld have
been illegal. With this double victory.
M. Clemenceau hastened away from the
chamber to avoid unoportune cougratu

Americans May Register
by Mail -
Only One Registration Officer Was
Appointed From Ontario to
Winnipeg, July 25.���In addition to the
executive order of tlie United States de-
purtmeut with respect to the registration of American citizens residing In
other countries, had resulted in allowing such residents to register at the
head consular offices by mill. Since the
books have beer opened for registration on July 1st, Dr. Jones, the local
American consul, has been in receipt of
many letters from American residents
residing at country points, asking for
information regarding the registration
of citizens by mail. The district over
which Or. Jones has jurisdiction comprises a vast stretch of country, reaching from the Nepigou district in Ontario, to the westerly confines of the
province of Saskatchewan. In this
stretch of territory it is estimated there
are between 4O.0U0 and 50.000 Americans. In case all this number were
compelled to register personally at the
head consular office in Winnipeg, there
would result endless trouble to those
whose homes were at distant points.
Throughout this district there are six
consular agents, but the recent edict
will not permit of the registration except at the head consular office in Winnipeg.
Shortly ufter the books were opened
for registration. Dr. Jones took up this
matter with the state department at
Washingion, und asked the officials to
consider the advisability of the question
of registration by mail. The matter
was thoroughly discussed, and after a
lengthy consideration, the new amendment was added.
Citizens registering by mail must
state In their letter to the consulate
office their full names, date aud place
of birth, where they last lived in the
United States, and when they arrived
in Canada. If married, they are required to send the name of their wife,
her place of birth, and her present residence. The names of children, date and
place of birth, and where they now reside must also be enclosed.
This will relieve a great amount of
the inconvenience which otherwise
would have been occasioned by the new-
law. It Is expected that large numbers
of letters will now be received* at the
Winnipeg consular office with requests
for registration. The lists have rapidly
grown during the past two weeks, and
no doubt will be greatly augmented In
the immediate future.
Estimate  of  Dr.  W.  Saunders on  This
Year's  Production.
Ottawa. July 25.���Dr. Wm. Saunders,
director of experimental farms, has returned from his lour of inspection of
Manitoba and the West. Dr. Saunders
docB not share tbe pessimistic opinions
recently published ns to the crop shortage. He says the area in which partial
failure Is expected Is due to drought, is
a restricted one, and on the whole, after
a careful review of the situation, he believes there will be tt three-fourths crop
With wheat at Its present price this will
mean a larger cash return to the farmer
than he received for the crop of last
yi-ar. Even should some of the late-
sown grain become frosted it will fetch
n price almost as high as was obtained
for good  wheat last season.

Ottawa, July 25.���Invitations have

world in which such organizations exist. Inviting them to send teams to Canada to compete at Rockcliffe' for the
Palma trophy. So far. the following
countries have notified Major Winter
that they will send teams: Great Britain. United States, Auslrailia and Newfoundland. Thus the match will be one
of great Importance. There was some
fear that Great Britain would not be
able to send a team, but It Is now definite that one will come. It Is more than
likely that Lieut. Addison, of Australia,

Students From   Islands at  Cornell  Say
Spanish Rule Was Better
Than American.
Ito I
Ithaca, N. Y., July 25.���The Filipino
colony at the Cornell summer school is
considerably agitated-over what some
members of the colony describe as the
unrest among the people of the Philip-
pints���not unlike the dissatisfaction
that preceded the outbreak of hostilities
against Spain. According to these Filipinos, their countrymen are quite miserable under the American flag, look back
longingly to the days of Spanish rule,
and would welcome a Japanese invasion that might rid them of the American tyranny.
Pedro Tuason, a law stndent. who
came here from Washington, and
Agaolco, another Filipino summer student, have been particularly bitter In
recent public utterances. Addressing a
large audience of university people in
Barne's Hall, Tuason characterized the
American attitude towards the Filipinos
as unintelligible. Particularly the latter
objected to being looked upon as an
Inferior people. He said the United
States had taken away the Island markets with Spain, and established a tariff
that precluded the acquisition of other
markets. By this "economic tyranny,"
he Bald, more hateful to the Filipinos
than the political and ecclesiastical tyranny of Spain, the Philippines were
threatened with impoverishment.
Agaolco declared that his countrymen
were deeply grateful to the Spaniards,
who had given their wards "a thorough
and congenial civilization," and laid the
foundation for an industrial system.
Without this already established groundwork "the American program of Instruction would prove a farce."
Only during the laBt ten years of their
rule were the Spaniards other than that
of beneficient suzerains. Other influential ones among the Filipinos, who are
here to take advantage of the summer
school sessions, today endorsed the sentiments expressed by Tuason and

New  York, July  25.���Acting District
Attorney Smythe and an assistant are
doing their best to probe deeply into tbe
terroristic   methods   employed   against
wealthy Armenians  to   force   them   to
conrtibute   to   the   anti-Turkish  movement   being    worked    by    certain   of
their countrymen.    That  these  revolutionist Armenians, who it appears, constitute   the society   called   Hunchakist.
do not stop at murder, was proven by
the   shooting   to  death  on   Monday   of
H. S. Tvaahanjian, the rich rug Importer
in Union Square.    Messrs. Smythe and
Manley nave had several Armenians before them and expect to examine others
today.   Every witness so far questioned
has besought the district attorney's office to keep his name and the fact of
his presence in the official's office a secret, so great ts the fear among the Armenians  of   the   Hunchakist.     The   Inquiry is therefore not a public one. It
has been learned that so bold has the
Hunchakist become that within an hour
after the murder of Tvashanjian threatening  letters  were  mailed to  at least
half a dozen well-to-do-Armenians. One
Buch  letter, it appears from the postmark, was mailed in the district bounded by Houston and 20 streets, the East
river, and Fourth avenue.    District Attorney  Smythe is sure that this letter
was written   by   an  accomplice  of  the
man who killed Tvashanjian.    The recipient of the letter was A.  Karajhen-
stan,  a   rug   importer   whose   brothers
have  large   business in  Constantinople
and Paris.   All the letters announce the
death of Tvashanjian and threaten the
others with the same fate unless they
submit   to   the   blackmail   already   demanded.    The rich Armenians here are.
in great fear of their lives.   Conversant
with Eastern methods of justice, they
do not understand why the district attorney does not throw in prison a number of Armenians  whose  names  they
have   given  the   authorities.     Some  of
the  threatened men  are  even said  to
be considering  the  project  to  raise a
defence fund, hire a rival society and
exterminate   all   the   blackmailers and
murderers.    Others are  much  less  aggressive   and   counsel  yielding to the
blackmailers   for  the   time   being   and
trusting to the district attorney's office
to break up the system.    The rug Importers biisinr. i makes them an easier
prey than they would otherwise be because It obliges them to keep on friendly terms with the Turkish government,
and  as a  result,  hostile  to  Armenian

Thursday, July 25th, 1907.
It is too late iu the day for tin- Machine press to attempt a reply to the
just complaints of Canadians that ihe
Dominion was misrepresented by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier at the Colonial Conference, aud lhat Sir Wilfrid has always
been, and still is, lukewarm, if not uli-
solutely unfriendly, to the growth of a
feeling of unity  within the Empire.
Whether preferential tariffs are or
are not essential to closer political and
and social relation!1, is a matter on
which neither British nur Colonials unagreed. The Colonials are all protec-
tlonists, pace Sir Wilfrid's solemn vow
of 1896. One British party is fondlj
committed to a belief that a protective
tariff or any kind of tariff is deadly
sin as well  as economic  folly.
But practically all the British of the
mother country and of the self-governing colonies, are agreed that the British
Empire cannot afford to remain a loose
association. It must in self-defence become an effectively  organized whole.
The laBt half of the Nineteenth Century, especially the last decade, saw
three events of the greatest slgnili
cance: the United States abandoned the
corollary of Its so-called Monroe doctrine, acquired over-seas possessions,
and began the construction of a power
ful navy; Japan became a modern world
power almost In a day; and the German emperor frankly avowed his Intra
tlon of ultimately challenging Briilsh
naval supremacy. These are some of
the developments that aroused British
statesmen to a sense of the urgent necessity for more effective organization
for Imperial defence.
The first line of defence of course Is
the navy. Until a few years ago lhe
entire burden, and it is not a light one.
of maintaining the navy, was borne by
the British tax-payers. Since then voluntary contributions hate been made by
every self-governing colony hut one, the
largest, most populous and wealthiest,
It iR. perhaps, unfortunate that the
great question of Imperial unity and organization was confused at tin* outset
with a system of inter-Imperial prefer*
ontial tariffs. The latter is at the best
a means, let it be granted for argument's sake, a doubtful means, to an
end. As to expediency of achieving the
end which is co-operation and organization of the British people throughout
the world, there is no division of opinion
among Britons.
So far as Sir Wilfrid Laurier's attitude at tin* Imperial Conference showed
a disincliuaiion to quarrel with the present British guvrrnmenl un tin- subject
of reciprocal tariffs, there is no ground
lor quarrel. Were that the whole explanation of his conduct, it might he admitted to be not only correct but statesmanlike and  patriotic.
But there is not a Canadian of British
blood, who is Intelligent enough to read,
and old enough to remember the events
of the last ten years, who does not know
that Sir Wilfrid's forbearance on that
subject was only a small part of a much
larger policy. In fact the only element
uf consistency Id Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
vhole political career Is his resolute opposition to every effort to strengthen
the ties that bind the Empirr* together.
His zealous regard for local autonomy
is not a political principle, his treatment of Alberta and Saskatchewan
proves that. It Is based solely on the
desire to hold aloof from other British
peoples and to preserve in Canada the
dominant Influence of his own people.
When the Boers declared war and Invaded Natal every other British colony
promptly offered men and money for
the defence of the Empire. Only Canada refrained. It was not until a wave
of indignation swept over the country
roused by the appeal of Sir Charles Tup.
per that Sir Wilfrid Laurler slowly and
reluctantly yielded and sanctioned the
enlistment of Canadian volunteers, and
even then no share of the expense was
borne li;1 the Canndlan treasury.
The late Principal Grant of Queen's
University could never be called a par-
tizan, and he was an avowed personal
admirer of Sir Wllrrid Laurler, but he
declared himself heartily ashamed, as a
Canadian, of the government's course,
and refused to regard the enlistment of
Canadians at the expense of the British
government  as  a  contribution   by   the
In the years that have followed since
Iho war lhe desire for co-operaiiou has
grown stronger. Other colonies have
contributed to the maintenance of the
Imperial  navy  In men. ships or money.
Canada  again  retrain*.    Her  refusal   Is
justified by the contemptible, technical
objection that the Canadian parliament
cannot vote money beyond its control.
The   objection   is   not  even  technically
Sir Wilfrid hns shown, In the disguising and concealing of his purpose and
policy, a skill which, from a purely artistic point of view, is wholly admirable.
His excuses have been plausible, anil
carefully masked behind a pretended regard foi- constitutional forms.
Only once. In a moment of unwonted
passion, illil he show his teeth. Thai
was when he called Lord lUiinilouald a
foreigner. Ills excuse, that he .only
meant stranger, was obviously dishonest. The French word, etranger, which
he pretended to have meant, means not
stranger   but   foreigner.
In his hostility to the imperial ideal
Sir Wilfrid found but one ally at the
conference. The British Liberals are
not really anti-lmperlal. They, loo. have
confounded Imperialism with Inter-Imperial preferential tariffs, which they
must oppose in defence of their Idol ot"
Free Trade. Tho one ally, who understood and sympathized with Sir Wll
frld Laurier's hostility to Imperialism
was President Louis Botha of the
Their hopes anil feelings may be perfectly natural and Justifiable. They are
not British, and their ijeals are not
British and never will be.
But the Issue for Canadians Is definite
and clear. There are two alternative
courses for Canada to follow, and she
is now at the parting of the ways. Details of organization may take years to
perfect, but the decision between Ihe
two courses confronts the Dominion
now. Is Canada to follow Wilfrid Laurler and draw apart from the British
peoples, or is she to Join her own, con-
tribute manfully her share of tho Imperial burden, ami work loyally with her
kinsmen for the solution of the problems that the Anglo-Saxon peoples have
now to face? The decision lies mainly
with the Canadian Liberals of Hrlllsh
ir Dolphine M. Delmas by his 'dementia Americana" earned the contempt of
foreign critics and lost caste with the
respectable members of his profession
in his own country, what punishment
should In* Inflicted upon Clarence Darrow? His address lo the Boise jury yes-
teray was beneath contempt. His abuse
of the state counsel was in violation of
every decent legal tradition, ills threat
that convli-tion of the prisoner would be
followed by open rebellion was an Anarchist threat. Before a Jury of patriotic American citizens he has done more
damage to his client than all the evidence.
The apathy shown towards the good
work or the 20,000 Club, not only by the
general public, but even hy swine who
have accepted office in it. Is deplorable.
The apathy is towards the work, not the
results. The club Is doing slplendld
work, and lhe present secretary is zealous and efficient. But there are too
many in Nelson who are content to reap
where others have sown. Work Is hard:

Alleged  Discovery of System  of Canala

* Philadelphia, July 25.���"Sensational
Antrnnomy," Is the term applied by
Prof. Charles h. Doollttle of the chafr
or itHtronomy at the University of Penn-
H.vlvanla anc director of the Flower Oi>
Hervatory, to the efforts of various scientists to prove that the planet Mars
Is Inhabited.
The fact that Mars is at this time
but 38,000,0011 tulles away from us as
compared wifh about 224.000.oOO miles
ut tho other end of Its orbit does not incline Professor Doollttle to believe anything will be learned about conditions
on that planet, and he has no expecta-
tation of great results from the expedition now working iu South America.
"I do not take much Interest In sensational astronomy," he said today.
"There la little of truth In the professed
expectation on the part of really scientific men of obtaining by means of photography a much more detailed knowledge of Mars than we already have.
"I do not expect that the telescope
or the telescopic camera will -ever actually detect the figures of living creatures upon Mars. Scientific inventions
will have to go farther than it has gone
���a good deal���before that ts done.
"There is nothing really determinate
in our knowledge of the so-called canals
of Mars. There Is no conclusive proof
to support-ftny of the several theories
that hnve been advanced in regard to
this optical phenomenon. The very fact
that the lines appear to lie so mathematically exact would be to refute the
idea that they nre artificial water channels for Irrigation or other purposes. It
Ih absurd to suppose that any intelligent beings would construct a canal
in perfectly  straight  and  parallel lines

for ihouHands of miieB on the variable
surface of a planet. There la more
probability In the theory that these objects are in appearance rather than a
reality and due lo almospherlc or gaseous conditions."
Ann Arbor, Mich., .July 25.���"I saw
something in the paper about Mars,"
said Professor Hussey of the University Observatory tonight, "but it was so
evidently a sensational story that I paid
little heed to it except that I turned the
telescope on the planet. I found nothing extraordinary. Of course, we keep
In touch with the planets and stars, but
nothing unusual has been discovered, to
my knowledge."
Cambridge. Mass., July to.���Professor
W. H. Pickering of the Harvard Observatory tonight, said, regarding the
telegram from Professor Perclval Lowell that astronomers sent out by him to
the Andes mountains had photographed
double canals on the planet Mars, that
until further information was at hand
he could not determine how valuable
the discovery might be.
Elaborate plans were made at Harvard observatory la��t night and tonight
to study Mara, but they came to little,
:ts the sky was overcast. However, tt
Is said that In the next few days many
more photographs will he made of the
surface of the planet by telescopic corn-
eras thoughout the country with a view
to discovering something new topographically.
One of the observers at Harvard this
evening said It was very doubtful if any
attempt would be made there to photograph Mars at this time, even though
the skies bo clear. The reason he gave
was that an exposure of four or five
hours would be necessary and that with
so long an exposure as that the plates
would almost certainly be spoiled by
reflections from the electric lights on

many other brilliant illuminations in

Maple Creek, Sask.. July 25.���With
the steady Influx of settlers into this district, Maple Creek is becoming something more than the centre of tbe ranching industry, and Is witnessing a quite
remarkable industrial development. Dut
with the certain knowledge of valuable
coal measures under the very townslte.
and with good prospects of gas and oil,
the future of this thriving and well-established town will probably be on a
larger scale than even Its own citizens
anticipate. The Maple Creek Oas, Oil
& Coal company. Limited, which was
recently formed by local capitalists,
struck a seam of coal seven feet thick
a little over 200 feet below the surface
while proBpecting for gas within the
town limits, and sampioa ot this submitted to experts in New York have
shown that It Is a domestic coal of fine
quality, being superior to the well-
known Gait coal at Lethbrtdge.     ���
The company is prepared to invest
$250,00 in development work, and a contract has already been let for sinking a
well 3,6000 feet for gas, which will no
doubt incidentally settle the value and
extent of the coal measures. If, as is
confidently anticipated, a big coal deposit is stripped here, it will give Saskatchewan a nearer and better source
of supply than is at present available,
and will do much towards solving tho
fuel  problem of the West.
