Future Days Brighter
\   And More Hopeful
On Sunday last a crowd of his countrymen and also a number.of members of the* United Mine Workers~of
America-gathered at the C. P. R. depot for the purpose of bidding'farewell
to Pietro Tonella, who left on the
Flyer en route for-his old home at
Angera,* in'the province of Como, Italy.
He was accompanied by two-.\of his
compatriots, also members.of the same
union to which he belongs. This is
indeed, an interesting case, and one
clearly showing the great advantages
accruing to those who believe? in the
runs about *40, and Mr. Gerard has his
hands full, and really ought to be a
polyglot to meet the requirements that
- re caused by so many languages being
spoken.
Tom Corkill, who has had an attack
of auriferitls, left us recently, to enter
the wilds 'of Windermere' where he
hopes to find another "Ptarmigan."
Mr. J. E.Hannifen has again taken
up "his previous occupation of contractor in Spokane and his place as conductor on the Eastern B, C. Transcontinental Corbin and McGilllvray Flyer
has been taken by Mr. J. D. White,
who Is an,expert ticket puncher, and Is
ably supported by Freddie Haynes and
William Montalbetti.
The biggest celebration In the Pnss
will take place on Dominion Day, July
1st, at Fernie B. C„ when sports of all
kinds will be indulged in.v iL Football
matches, baseball games, tug-of-war,'
foot races, long and short distances,
hose reel races etc. Watch for further particulars.
Miss Thorpe has changed her place
of abode from Corbin to the railroad
centre of McGilllvray. Rumor has it
that she intends visiting the village .by
the Lalse Moyie.
Several excellent catches of the finny ones have been made recently, but,
•J. R. Hill holds the position of top not-
cher among the pupils of Isaac Walton.       *■ , .
F. T. Snell, In the accountant's department is at present, In the northern
town of the evergreen state, Spokane,
and we feel confident that he is * deporting himself in classic style.
John Thomas is now occupying the
position of pit boss. We wish him
luck on his elevation.     .
There was an addition to our population when Mrs. Leoskoski presented
John with another bold Canadian. Mother and child both 'doing well.   •
The general health of the canip is
excellent, and leaves Dr. Gladwin with
considerable spare time'on his hands.

that recently a sick individual was imported, from one of the "pineapple dis-

than one boy and girl cried today
when they' heard that he had died.
Though -we may not have shown it
when we were at school, we surely
appreciated all that he did for us In
our lessons ancl in helping us to be
better boys and girls. ' And there never was, I believe, a better teacher to
make tlie boys learn grammar and
history. He made it so interesting
that we enjoyed these subjects."'
Will Divide the Class
Arrangements have been made by
the school board and the ward school
principals to divide the entrance class
of the late Mr. Suddaby, of 42 members among them. .The work will go
on as usual, but the schools will likely
all bo closod on the day of the' funeral.

in that city of the father of Mr. N. _.
Suddaby and Mrs. A. H. Creecof this
city:    s=s-U=
Following with tragic suddenness
after" the death of Mr. Tracey, came
the announcement on Sunday forenoon:* "Principal Suddaby is dead."
It was almost incredible, for Mr. Suddaby had been at his post without any
intermission,'and in fact without any
complaint of illness. He was especially busy of late with his class of 42
collegiate entrance candidates, and
there was a' press of other school
-workf-r—He—was—engaged—■until-- late
on Saturday night on examination papers, but retired without any special
word that he was unwell. Imagine the

The news of Mr. Suddaby's sudden
demise caused sincere sorrow among
the thousands of boys and girls—
now grown up—who have had the benefit of his scholarly, knowledge, and
his high moral and Christian standards
of life, whicli he ever sought to inculcate' into those who were under, his
charge., i Today the flags on all thc
schools are at hnlf mast. They are
tho emblems of tho sorrow that Is voiced by many hundreds of our peoplo
—and especially tho graduates from
Mr. Suddaby's schools.
Forty eight years ln all Is n long
time—almost half a century—for a
member of tho profession to remain
at his post, and In this connoctlon his

Ontario can equal such i,a length of

The return airway in the Wellington
Pit at Whitehaven has been walled
up.
This was the only avenue of escape
left for the entombed miners in the
doubtful chance of any of the poor
fellows being alive. The extent of
the fire, a further vain attempt to penetrate which was made, necessitated
this action. The three managers,
with an expert' from Leeds, only succeeded with the aid of the Mecco
breathing apparatus, in getting to a
point in the return way 500 yards beyond the stopping of the intake and
400 yards from the place of the outbreak of the fire,      , ,
A special meeting of,the Executive
of the Cumberland Miners Association
was held al. Maryport to consider the'
disaster.* About 500 men and boys
are laid idle through the closing of tiie
pit, and it was decided to ask the eoal
owners to make a levy of Gd per week
off all wages of 3s Gd por day and upwards and 3d from nil wages below
3s Cd until the pit is reopened.    The

OLD COUNTRY NOTES
"   (Reynolds)
Employment has been very good
amongst agricultural laborers, especially in the northern counties, but trouble has cropped up in the eastern
counties, and 100 men working in the
St. Faith district of Norfolk have now
handed in notices to leave their employers unless, one shilling a week
raise be granted, and that work is to
stop at noon on Saturday. The laborers are only paid 13 shillings per
week,, and yet the farmers have refused to meet the demand for the extra
pay and will not agree to the work
slopping at noon on,Saturday.
If the men stop wor ..the farmers
may find themselves in difficulty, as
although the supply of farm laborers
is equal to the demand in all parts of
the country, there is no surplus of laborers of this class.
Heavy Cost of Strikes
Xo less a sum than J.2*4,591 was
spent, on strikes and lock outs during
tho past year by the Soulh Wales Miners Federation.
This was set forth In the annual report which was submitted at tho Annual conference held * at Cardiff on
Monday." The iotal expenditure of.
the Federation for the year was £70,-
582, for in addition to the heavy cost
of tho strikes the sum of £25,351. was
spent as out of work pay. Litigation
cost, a further £3,-133, the°contrlbutIon
to the Minors Federation of Great Britain was .C2.38S, and the Parliamentary levy to the Miners Federation was
£5,324. _ '-'
Hut despite the heavy expenditure
the total funds in hand amount to
£128,165, which is an increase of almost five thousand "pounds.
The membership of the Federation
is 141,080; and Mr. W. Brace in' addressing the, miners pointed out that
tliey had now secured a five years
contract that should make the -Federation even stronger than it was, and so
be fully prepared for the time when
a. new agreement had to be made.

A proposition was recently made by
Mr. Sydney Buxton, President of the
Board of Trade, to amend the Eight
Hours act*, so as to allow colliery men
to go back to work earlier -on Saturday mornings than on the other days
of the week ,so as to prevent over-lapping. This would, allow the South

The proposition • was discussed at

was opposed. This decision has been
forwarded to the Miners' Federation

The Domestic Happiness
Of a Moyie Home is
Sadly Twisted
J. S. JVllson, a guest at'the Garrett
hotel, E82. Main avenue, is still continuing the search started three months
ago for his wife, who left her home in
Moyie, 11. C, because of mistreatment
at his hands.
"I.believe she is in Spokane now,"
he said today, "and I am going lo look
the city over until I locate her.", '
airs. Wilson is 32 years old, of medium height and full figure. Her eyes
are brown, her cheeks rosy and her
brown hair touched "with gray.
Thc_above is taken from the Spokane Chronicle. ' -     '
This Is the same individual who-
came inlo Fernie .and as a result of
a phone message, whicli was sent presumably by himself that a man named
Wilson had poisoned himself, James
Roberts, secretary of the W. P. M., local-at Moyie, wired the editor of this
paper that $90 would be allowed for
funeral arrangements, aud asked that
r  j
wo attend to the same.
"Enquiry at Hie city and provincial
jails failed,to have any result neither
had the hospital authorities any information lo'furnish..
Trouble and expense were incurred
by these stupid tricks which'were performed by an erratic individual .with
the hope of the news reaching'1 his
wife, her sympathy aroused to the-extent that she-would'come to attend
the funeral (!) of the supposedly dead

THE BIG
PROBLEM
Is Socialism Says Taft
And Then Some--A
; Frame-up Coming
a sudden emergency had met with a
prompt response.'
, It was decided to hold the. next general meeting of the branch at Kaslo,
Kootenay Lake', an invitation from- the
members resident there having been
received. '7The meeting will be held
about the middle of next September.
—From report of meeting of Western
Branch of the Canadian Mining Institute:      ." ,'■.'''
ALBERTA FAIR
JACKSON, Mich.', June 4.—President
Taft today proclaimed socialism as the
great problem that confronts the American people, the Issue that Is soon
to come and  that must be skilfully
• met. By Its history, he declared that
the Republican party had shown Itself
capable of dealing wllh great questions, effectively and wisely, and he
declared that tho American * people
must soon determine whether It shall
trust the same party with the solution of "that problem, thnn which we
have no greater in the history of the
country.'*-
Framing an Issue
Mr. Taft spoke with great earnestness and his remarks coming as a reiteration of a brief sentence concerning socialism at Ada, Ohio, yesterday,
* seemed to impress his hearers deeply.,   .   .
By many, his remarks were taken
as framing an issue for the coming
campaign.
The occasion of his visit here was
the unveiling of a bronze tablet commemorating the' organization of the
Republican -party "Under the Oakes"
'in 1854.
OXYGEN BREATHING APPARATUS
* No information concerning the decision of the. Dominion government'relative to the application made by the
branch for the exemption ■ from payment, of, Customs duties onnoxygen-
breathing, apparatus for use in mine
rescue work had been received by the
secretary,0 but the chairman stated-he
understood from some correspondence
exchanged .between the Dominion and
Provincial governments that the for-
*mer will arrange for the exemption
asked for, along the lines already adopted by the United States government, wliich had obtained the requisite
authority for exemption of the apparatus mentioned. The chairman gave
the meeting brief particulars , of .the
mine rescue training work being done
at Seattle, Washington, by the technological branch of U. S. Geological survey, and mentioned that a call for a
•Vancouver" island coal* mine for- the
assistance of the official ln chargo In
In.a province with the opportunities
that are in Alberta it is'most difficult
to secure adequate help on the dairy
farms. It is becoming more difficult
in the thickly settled,and older provinces, and the, milking machine is now
taking a more important place in tho
necessary equipment of* the dairy farm
and yet up to the present there is not
a milking machine lh operation In Alberta. For this reason the directors of the Provincial Exhibition to be
held at Calgary June 30th to July 7th,
decided to obtain a herd of 20 dairy
cows and-conduct a milking machine
demonstration during the exhibition.
The dairy herd will be tied by three
or four different kinds of up to date
stanchions. Prof. Elliot, superintendent of the C. P. - R. demonstration
farm-; who has * had wide experience
with milking machines, Is taking the
charge of this department, and will
be in the large "sale building where
we ' have seating accommodation for
over 1000 people.
One of the attractions of'the exhibition secured at on enormous expense
is Alber's Ten Snow White polar bears
—these bears are beautifully trained,
and recently delighted the audiences
at the New York Hippodrome, the
largest theatre on the continent. It
speaks well for the Exhibition when
an act such as ,tnis is' brought from
New York's largest theatre where the
stage is over 200 ft, wide and practically. 10,000 people see their wonderful
programmes daily, and only the best
acts are'fortunate enough to secure
engagements at this theatre..
Tlie Navassar Ladies' band which is
coming to the exhibition is quite equal
to'the most famous male bands. Entries for the exhibition* close on June
18th. " - .".'..'

A Counter Movement to
The Boys Scouts Is
Now Organized
LONDON, June 4—For some time
past a movement has gone on quietly
but none the less successfully, for
counteracting the military side of'the
Boy Scouts movement.
A body known as the National
Peace Scouts, is already in existence
with betwen 60^000 and 100,000 members;' who constitute a boy's order of
chivalry, free from all militarist character and concerned only In tho promotion of the mental, moral and physical well being of boys.
Amongst the promoters of the movement Is Sir Francis Vane, who saw
service as a volnuteer In the Boer war
and in 1886 raised the first corps of
Working Boy Cadets. It will be understood therefore that Sir Francis'
objection to militarism Is, in the caso
of Boy Scouts, only where there has
been a departure from the original aim
of the movement as a. training in civil
discipline.    "
"The Idea is," says Sir Francis, "the
National Peace Scouts shall have no
reference whatever to our warlike preparations, and they will not act as a
link in our scheme of defence. We
have no sympathy with that side of
the Boy Scouts movement which operates in the direction of conscription.
We don't train up a boy to believe nations. We teach a boy to look upon
all nations "as people working out their
ojyn salvation, as brother nations, not
necessarily antagonistic. We try to
give a boy not only national but an international ideal.
Our idea is to. save this boy Scout
movement from militarism. An endeavor was made to attach the Boy,
Scouts to the military manoeuvres recently and an endeavor has been made
in some quarters'to make them a unit
of the Territorial, army."

VERDICT IN THE EXTENSION    EXPLOSION, B. C.
A letter lias been received' from Mr. E. Jacobs, of
Victoria, B. C, in reply to the communication of Thomas
P-udge in the April number of Mines and Minerals. The,
letter in full would take much more space than can be
.spared to publish it, but the following are his principal
ciiticisms and explanations:   -
He states that Mr,, Ashworth was employed by the
Minister of Mines to make the inspection, and gave evidence in regard to the disaster, on the recommendation
and request of the Chief Inspector of Mines, with the
object of having a thorough inquiry and the benefit of
O r-
independent testimony.
Tho jury, of course, were at liberty to give whatever
weight to his testimony they saw fit.
Regarding the conditions at the point where the accident happened, Mr. Alexander .Shaw, overman at Extension mines, testified that'on account of faults and.
rolls at this point, rooms had not been opened between
Nos. 25 and 27.
Regarding the percentage of gas in the mine air, he
states: "It may be conceded that marsh gas was present
in the atmosphere of the mine ori the morning of the
explosion (October u) but there was no body of standing
..gas or explosive gas reported that lrfoniing or more recently than August 11.'
The district inspector reported on August, 10 and
September 6 that he failed'to find explosive standing gas.
,,_rom iy2 to 2 per cent of marsh gas will not sho\v upon
the ordinary testing lamp used by the firemen, so that
under such conditions, he would report that the mine
.was clear. "He''did not however,-examine the 2V_ west
level, ■ where the disaster occurred, for he said. "I. have
 a_good^deal,of__:rJLandJLonly_goJ:o_the__plAces^at_ii_
Take, for Instance, his quotation of the remark of Budge
as to what Mr. Alexander Shaw, overman said: "I have
a good deal of work to do and I only go to those places
that require most attention." Here is an acknowledgement of the oft-repeated-story of the mines, more especially the larger ones, that they- are not employing
sufficient fire and pit bosses to make the examination
that they should do, but of course we all know the reason of that. It costs too much money and therefore the
risks are taken.
It is the same in. nearly every industry and if an
employee, especially in an official capacity, complains
about not having enough time in'which to make his
rounds, he may not be discharged openly for this, but
if he makes too many objections it is not a difficult matter to relieve him of his anxiety by replacing him' by a
more complaisant individual, who consoles himself with
the thought "I'ILdo the best that I can and can't do any,
more,—so for the rest it's up to the company." That
these are facts is commonplace knowledge to everybody
connected with industrial pursuits, and it is the neglect
or Ignoring of rules and' sometimes the breaches of laws
enacted that result in accidents which should rightly be
classed as avoidable.
o
. There is another statement made, and:-this by Mr.
Jacobs regarding the non-compliance with rule 9a which
reads as follows:
"At least IN A MEASUR_ this is not a true statement." -       :
, This is in reference to minors being reported to have
fired shots when and how they pleased. The capitals
are ours and we are at a loss to know why this attempt
at qualification,,.if the miners did"fire the shots when
and how they pleased, Mr. Budge's assertion is perfectly
true without any MEASURE; if on the other had _hey
did not dp this it is a lie, and also without any MEASURE.    ■
The use of these three words stamp this letter of Air.
Jacobs as a very much strained apologetic.
Regarding inexperienced foreigners being employed
as miners, Mr. Jacobs states that every minor has to secure a certificate of competency. This is perfectly true
but in his attempt to throw the blame upon the miners'
i epresentative on the Board of Examiners and have him
bear his share of the blame if incompetent men are allowed to work in the mine, he has most certainly overshot the mark, and this in itself proves that either he is
ignorant of the facts or is making a deliberate attempt
to cloud the issue, in either of which cases he is* not
qualified in the premises to be a judge of the matte'i- in
question. ' <
On the JBoard of ■ Examiners there are,three representatives, of the Government, of the. Company where
the man is employed and of the miners, whose duty it is
to find but the qualifications of a man before he Is given
HILLCREST
quire the most attention."
Mr. Jacobs states-jthat at the time of the explosion
the mine was worked with open lights, but he had most
'positive assurances that locked safety lamps were used
'wherever the presence of sufficient gas indicated the necessity. While the level where.the .cave took place was
being driven safety lamps were used. Afterwards this
part was reported to bo clear of gas and for weeks open
lights were used, -    ■ - ,«,•.' .-.,
There Is a conflict of testimony in regard lo the direction of the blast, as indicated by scorching and coking
of the coal. *7
Tho night fire, boss testified that ho was through' all
parts of the mine on tho morning of tho explosion and
found everything thore in a safe condition for tho working.
Regarding tho statement that Rule 9a was not enforced and that miners fired shots whon and how thoy
pleased, Mr, Jacobs states that "at least In a measure
this Is not a true statement." Tho colliery manager testified that the shot lighter wasn't on, and Mr. Shaw, (tho
overman) did It himself. Tho mon who mndo tho examination ln Iho night wero flreinon. Tho mon wlio mndo
the oxnmlnntloii In the morning woro shot lighters. Mr.
Shaw was acting as Bhot lighter on tho morning of tho
explosion.
Regarding. Inoxporlonced foreigners bolng omployod
aH miners Mr, Jacobs Htnte» that ovory minor him to secure a certificate of competency from tho bonrd boforo
he Ih permitted to work In a coal mine, If Incompotont
men wore allowed to work In the mino—which ho (Ioor
not mlmlt—tho representative of tho miners on tho board
must bear his Hhare of tlio blamo.
Roxni'dlng iho mlno maps Mi*. Jacobs muted that ho
has asHurances from tlio Provincial Ilureuu of Mines
that tho roqiilromantfl of tho law In regard to lho map
of tho nilno to bo kept nt tho offlco of tho mlno, was fully compiled wllh. Tho mnp required to bo postod at lh«

employment as a miner; his statement is generally accepted by the employer when he is put to work, and
nearly a month may elapse before the Board meets, as
they hold monthly meetings only; In this, space of time
many accidents may happen, therefore to try to fasten
any blame upon'the miners' member of the board Is not
just.. 'As we'think we have satisfactorily disposed of this
feature of Mr. Jacob's'article, let'us now turn our atten-
tion'fo the question of the maps In which It is advanced
that it has not been claimed,by anyone that this contributed id the death of the miners. This is beside the

Messrs Trites nnd Wood, the millionaire merchants of the Pass, were

Mrs. Frank Pearson and family,-recent arrivals from Durham,'' England,

Last Sunday Mrs. Laurence Falletti
reached here from Coffeen, 111.,' and
we think that before very long both
she and Laurence will be as Canad-
Ianized as her brother Charles, who
says he now prefers this side of the

Joe Swingle, with a well meaning
intention thought .that it would be' a

famous Burrows kennels, so when he
was about half way home from Frank
discovered that he had made a mistake in the breed, as he made the astounding discovery that his ."canine"

,Recently the -Blairmore aggregation
of sphere tossers and wood handlers
gave an exhibition of baseball here,
giving our local enthusiasts such a
walloping that we dislike to mention
the yawning gulf that existed between
the two scores. This in itself was
enough to make a' man feel blue, but
the last straw wns broken when the
frog chorus brigade was formed, and
although we are by no means "croakers," the combination was altogether
too strong for .the sensitive feelings of
the little goat,.(No,' he's not Welsh)
who did such splendid bunting on the
left'field, th'at.-.he offered to sell his
Grand Hotel de Nick Nac, where after
a debating club had been started and
feeling the need for intellectual pursuits of*' a more material kind, Professors Cook.(Cook is.'ja most appropriate
inaine) and Swingl<$r gave some demon-
'strations on Jones' stove.in the very
difficult task of trying to cure .fish-
eaters.- This, as'-you are doubtless
aware,' is considered the highest feat
of-cookery, and some authorities claim
that it can only be done if they are
captured when-quite young. We hope
to be able to report progress from time
to time, and can; report now that the
smoke was Al anyway.
Doctor Allan Ross is looking splendid after his short absence from among
us..
Mr. George Martin was down at
Passburg a few days ago fixing up the
hall for the Union.
Tuesday last the honorably defeated
baseball team confronted the Danny
Slavln crowd. - The famous Doctor
Chase, he of the Camomile celebrity,
from Springhiil, acted as umpire, and
some of the participants say that he
ought to have put his name into practice and have done it before the game
started, as his decisions did not'meet
with the approval of many. He gave
the game to the Danny Slavins. Tho
action of the man on first for wearing
such a dazzling helmet- might be a
great attraction at a circus, or for use
as a means to flash messages from
one camp to another) but as a headgear in a baseball match if was out of
place altogether.
The Danny Slavins now stand ready
to meet all comers, Coal Creek preferred. ,
We have received word from an authority that up to the present has
been perfectly reliable that our worthy
president. has been seen at various
times in the company of members of
the fair sex,-which led to the belief
that the rumor that he is thinking of
getting married is well founded, and
that he is practising those little attentions so useful to a benedict. We sincerely hope that there may be some
truth in this and if it is realized we
will give him a hearty welcome to
come down to Hillcrest for his honeymoon where he will be given a reception that will live as long as his mem
ory lasts,

COAL CREEK BY 174
oh Wednesday.' ,
The disgraceful conduct , of the
three individuals who came' up> from
town,and created such a disturbance
in the boarding house is another reason why there should be somebody up
here to do police duty and' the sooner
the better.
Quite a number of Creekites have
been down to Barnes circus this week.
and'all speak highly of what, they have
Been, but Irving-in'a wild part of the
world like this we hear of lions .bears;

shout.,"I am-going, to be sick when I
get out.I wish I had.never come In,".
Taklng.it all around It Is a first class
show and worth patronizing.
Two - or three young toughs, who
had been up here about a-week or two
went down to Fernie last Thursday ev-
- 'ening, 'and ,after getting pretty well
primed with firo water, returned, with
the last train like wild Indians on'the
war path and.wanted to fight*anyone
tliey met. When they arrived at the
boarding house they.started in to give
abuse' to an old man, and when they
were asked'.to desist and get off to
* bed, the'language they used was disgraceful. ;■ They tried to take possesion of the house and even produced a
nasty little shooting iron, but did not
' do' any damage with it.     The next
" morning three miserable objects .with
black and blue noses stole out of the
camp, drew their time and-skipped out
without 'even stopping to pay'for their
board.
* The football match played .up here
between'Coal Creek, and - Hosmer on
, May .25th -resulted in a win for the
home team by .two goals toi. J. W.

The baseball match played here on
Sunday between Michel and Blairmore
attracted quite a large crowd, Michel
again moved *.oo much for her opponents and defeated the visitors 13 to 11,
not going in for the 9th innings. The
Blairmore,. team spent quite a lot of
time in instructing the home toam In
the rules of the game. Things at one
stage began to look serious for Michel
and the New * Town ' sports began. to
change color. However due to good
play and management the home team
pulled through'' victorious. - The rooters0 played a strong game and the
dr_g departments of the stores in the
town are now doing a rushing business

■Michel  football club  visited  Cran-
brooks on Saturday to play the return
match witK that"' team. The game
was a hostile one from the start to
the time that Michel left the field;
The score was one to nil-in favor of
Cranbrook.
On Sunday the team journeyed to
Moyie where a very clean and sociable
game was played, Michel winning the
game by 1 to 0. , There were from 200
to 300 spectators present. The team
came back on Monday night and their
opinion of the Moyie boys is that they
are all right. Tliey wish to thank
them for the very pleasant time they
had at the little city by the lake.
Michel football club has $1000 to put'
up on a match with Cranbrook, any
time they feel like putting up a similar amount. The game is to be played on neutral grounds and with a neutral referee, one who undei-stands all

Railway Project Lends Great Possibilities—
A Territory  Unrivalled for its Wealth of
Minerals — Another   Field   For  Fortunes
I
Written by. J. H. for "The Sciencu
and Art o£ Mining.)
The near future will see the completion of a great Canadian railway
undertaking, and one thai, is unique
among the railroads Of America, lt
is the .first purely Canadian transcontinental line and therefore is destined
to be part of the Imperial All Hed
Route, It is tbe farthest north transcontinental railway system on the continent, and the quickest coast to coast
railway thoroughfare in North America, Last, but by no means least,
It succeeds in getting through the
Rockies with half the ascent of any
other line, that crosses the range. This
new highway of nations is the Grand
Trunk Pacifici Railway. Built at a
cost of $250,000,000, through 3G00 mis".
of diversified country,,, and the result
of,many years of hard and patient labor it is iiideed a stupendous piece of
work.        "
Unlike somo western railroads, this
new line is being built on modern principles at the start. Everything is substantial and of the best. Bridges are
of steel and scientifically constructed.
It'is essentially a line'with a big mission, well equipped lo gratify the ambition of its projectors, and a worthy
competitor of its great rival, the Canadian Pacific Railway—the pioneer
road in the development of western
Canada.
At the back of this big enterprise
lies one chief stimulus, and that is
wheat and its transportation.^ To the
Dominion grain growing is the star of
hope, and (,the true Canadian mind
thinks of wheat, oats, and barley, first
last and all the time. "Whatever else
contributes to.the making of the Canada that is to be,- it is a foregone conclusion that wheat will play a mighty
big part iii its quick development, and
that is why this young nation of 7,000,-
 00Q=neQple=lias=uluead-v=p'Qt=the=u,}T)er=
hand of an enormous tract of land,
pushing still further ahead with the
iron highway into virtually unpopulated territory. The Grand Trunk Pacific opens up great areas of fertile
land, and will create another vast agricultural country to satisfy the hunger
of a world wide nation. - Among the
new settlements are the northern portions of Saskatchewan, Alberta and
Urllish Columbia,
lint while the primary objective of
the Grand Trunk Railway is grain and
foodstuff!-, there are, of course, other
prospects and resources thnt must enter into the proposition, Next In importance to agriculture, comes mining.
Theso two spheres of mnn's work spell
prosperity. They are the fundamental
basis of all Industry; the true pillars
of all wealth.
Interesting ns those two fields of
mini's activity are, nnd what, this new
lino will do for them, of more imined

To i-v'-n briefly review tho mining pos-

attention Is therefore directed to tho

is the most Interesting to ihe miner,

rough country. What kind of a country is it What route does the new
line take in penetrating this turbulent
area? What is'this brand new territory
going to add to the wealth of Canada?
It is such questions that suggest this
contribution, and the following data,
brief and incomplete though it must
of necessity be, it is hoped will at least
give a fairly good idea of the1 mining
possibilities of , the Rough Country,
that, has been in the past a sort of a
game preserve for the Hudson Bay
Company, and the home of the old time
prospectors and nomadic Indian trappers.
In the Edmonton district tliere are
fully a dozen operating coal mines, all
working lignite*'coal and for the most
part on a small scale. Yet modern
mining methods are in vogue even in
this new district. At least two of tlie
mines are "equipped with an outfit of
puncher coal cutting machines, and
several are now shipping coal by rail
to points 100 miles away. The first
seam of coal In this vicinity lies practically level at a depth of about 100 ft.
and is the only seam which is being
worked. It averages from four to five
feet in thickness, and has a fairly good
roof, although in places,owing to the
porous cover and poorly chosen site,
it is inclined to be wet and short. The
coal Is worked on the room and pillar
system. Safety lamps of the Wolf
type have been introduced into one of
the mines, but naked lights are still
in use' in the others.
The coal is sheered and blown off
the solid in most of the mines. The
majority of the Edmonton mines' are
working, under difficulties, owing to
being sunk along the banks of the Saskatchewan river. ' This, at first meant
less sinking than on high ground, and
afforded good facilities for sleighing
coal down the ice during the, winter
months to fill the domestic demand'
of-Edmonton and Strathcona. In summer these- advantages are more than
offset by having to "haul the coal over
*-B;i_I^E''R:S'7
for the Yellowhead pass, the beginning
of the Rough Country,
Through the Pass it enters the Cariboo district of British Columbia, turns
north west with the Fraser river to
Giscombe Portage, and then commences a game of "shuttle cock through a
trying country until it. reaches Hazleton on the' Skeena river. At this
point the line is well oyer the 55th
parallel, and fifty miles to the nortli
of the "feet of Alaska." Prom Hazleton- passing south westward it strikes
for Prince Rupert, the Pacific terminus, which it reaches after another zigzag course through rough country and
after having covered another 1300 mis.
in coming from Edmonton. Standing
at Prince Rupert, a great city and pr.: t
In the making, Halifax is-certainly a
long way off. There is a length of ],-
000,000 rails; laid on 12,000,000 ties,
held down by 50,000,000 spikes; an immense iron trail winding over prairie,
river, rocks, and muskeg, past lake,
hill, peak and mountain, through forest, valley, canyon and, chasm.
Along the new line from Edmonton
the first true coals are found iri. the
Pembina, Brazeau and Big Horn fields.
Here bituminous coal of a high grade
has been found, and boring shows that
some of the seams are thick, Several
large properltes'are to be developed.
The Kananaskis Coal Company, .the
German Development Company and
the Canadian Northern Railway Company-—a line that will also strike for
the Yellowhead—have all done prospecting work hereabouts, and conditions are good for the working of the
seams, .
After these fields the next valuable
areas are in the Yellowhead Pass and
adjacent ground. Here-, bituminous
coals of thirty and jrorty feet in thickness are found, and owing to the mountainous country they pitch considerably. The. Grand Trunk Pacific and
O'Brien interests of Cobalt fame, are
getting busy in this district, in addition
to several other* concerns.     This vic-

rich in minerals. A fifty foot seam of
coal outcrops as far north as the Mackenzie river.'- A huge natural gas and

It will be- seen through these brief

within reach of the miner a country

Hitherto operations have' been practically prohibited owing to the i.*o)at-

however, will revolutionize'all'this. It
"invades tlie~heart ofTheTtough Country and begins an area of" real (level-,
opment for the Canadian north west,
effecting the transformation of a wild
uncultivated region into a rich productive territory.
A transcontinental railway implies
tributary lilies, and several western
branch roads are already proposed to
tap the surrounding country of the new
system. Truly the' mnp of tho far
"Northern Wilderness"- is. assuming
strange patterns.

final foe," .
Dr. Bi-ann is lector of Si. Agnes
church in East Forty-Third street. He
is regarded as being probably closer to
the archbishop than any other priest.
He is the first Catholic priest to be
elected to the Union League club, that
was formed during ihe civil, war out
of patriotism.
"When Mayor Uerger says that Iho
final foe of Socialism will be the Roman Catholic church he speaks well,"
says Dr. Draun, "but why does that
mal tor. Before tlie Socialists havo
won over every man who owns a bit
of land the time will be so far dis-
tant Hint it is not worth bothering
about. A Socialist having nothing is
suro io he against,.,private property
rights, yet i|"l gave one ten acres.of
land do you suppose that he would divide it with \na fellows? Xo; immediately he would cease to he a Socialist.'
"I have read most of their works in
most languagj*"--. Vou may' say that
I said they are all blatherskites. When
thoy are not ignorant they have a
crack In the drum. I cannot waste
time over them. Please say that I
said so. I know them, and when you
talk about graft, why'there is never
anymore graft anywhere than when
a Socialist gets anything.".
