or three dnllurs per cord, instead ol

admirer und studonl of Nature, uml
when frum the duck uf hia vessel In
,.',,,.I on tlio pictureaipie scene befor,
him his senses musl have been cup
livuted and charmed. Ah he steppe,
ashore nnd prepared to follow the lu
diun trail thai led to I'amoosuii hi'
attention was urresl.ed by u nog'
maple tree, which, will, spreading
branches rich will, bright green lnl
age, sfoud directly in his path, No
historian bus recorded lhe fact; but
I feel sure Sir Jumes questioned lhe
chiefs ns to this magnificent monarch
of thc forest, and uppluudcil Iheir for
lu-ii.iu, ,- ii, having preserved ,i frum
destruction ,fur it was very ubl, ul
though it showed no signs of decay.
At thc foot of the tree, so neur lhat
somu of the routs extended into the
wator, was 1 spring clear us eryslul.
Jt was fed by a rill lhat trickled from
tho side of Iho hill whieh overlooks
I'ml burn  lliu, and its  unl em possessed
tbo rare characteristic of being as cold
as ico in summer as well as in winter
No matter how warm the wciilbor II,,,
wale,.' of the spring Ibul nestled by
tho great maple tree wore ss cool ns
if tboy bail flowed from a glacier. The'
Indians wero proud of tho spring and
used its water freely. Thoy suiil it
possessetl uiodiciuul properties. They
also claimed tbat It was bewitched.
Said one of thu chiefs in (Ihiiiuok jar
gun to the uew arrivals:
"If a woman should louk into the
wutur when tbo moon is at Its full
lull see roflocteii In it thu face of
Iho mun who loves her.   If a mail looks

spiril of the spring, uml us long as the
Iree stands the wuter will creep to ,1s
loot for protection ami shade; cut
down the tree and the spring will be
seen nn moru."
Such wus the Indian tradition whicii
lunl clung lo the maple uud lhe spring
llirough many uges nf savuge occupo
tion, Wlicit I first visited the buy in
Ifjlil) I reached it liy nivalin uf a narrow uml tortuous trail thai led down

of the waters, uud they were sweet
and 'imi, Ihough the day was warm.
My lompunioiis, who wore young men
ami Women from Victoria, knelt ut the
side of the wutor ami tried, without
success, tt, conjure up tlie faces uf
iheir future lnisbunda of wives.
"The moon must be shining and ut
ils full before you can see the spirit,
and this is midday. Vou can't expect
in see anything now," said one of
the  girls.
Alter this visit Cadboro Hay became
a favorite resort. We put u ruth

niter the fainous waler sprite of fiction, uml nearly every line Saturday
afternoon we formed ti smull party
and rode on Indian ponies lo the spot.
Alter luncheon we dunned bathing
suits uml disported in llic waters of
the buy until the chill breeze ami setting sun admonished us thul the hour
hud arrived  when  wc musl  seek  our
Ilil,lies.
Tl*'  fume  of  "Father Tune"  uml
weet    luiline   spread   fur  und   wide,
and muny were the trips msde by the I
lovesick of both sexos to tbs spring.
When ths moon was at its full tho
visitors sought to conjuro up tboir
future partners. If tboy mot with
success I uover hoard of it. One Inv c
I ly ovening iu August, 1868, I rode out
to tho spring. 1 wantod tu test the
truth of the pretty logend and did not
expect to meet any other person tbere.
As I descended tiie hill I beard voices,
un,l to my surprise spon saw that two
ladies aud two gentlemen had reached
the spot before me. v They ralllod mo
as to the object of my viilt it that
untimely hour, and I frankly confessed that I was in sesreh of the
woman who wus to bo my wifo. Tboy
were frank, loo, and wo found that
all had com,, on the same errand. At
eight o'clock the harvest moon roso
in ull its splendor, ond beforo nine it
shone full upon the enchanted spot.
Its rays seemed to forOO themselves
tiiruugh lhe f'olinge of tho graud old
maple, and lighted up thu placid
wulers uf Undine, whicii glistened liko
tin,lien silver.
"Come on. girls," cried one of tho
yuung  follows, "let's take a peep."
The girls advanced timidly and then
fell buck.., They were afraid to lool:
Icsl they should seu something thai
would uot be pleasant—tho whole affair was so uncanny,
"Well," continued the young man,
'if yuu won't, I will," and he gazud
lung uud earnestly into the water and
then rising, suid.
"1 saw oply thc reflection of my
own ugly faco—1 saw thut plainly."
I tried my luck next, with a like
result The waters gave back only
my owu features. I s>|uiuted and tho
reflection squinted. I mude a grimace
ami il grimm-cd, I raised my hand and
the ligure raised ils baud.
"PshawI" 1 cried, "that Indian
legend is a humbug I here's nu spirit
here. Hurry up—try it and let's gu
home,"
tine of Ihe young ladies, who had
gat here,I courage by Ihis lime, knell
at the side uf the puul. She was very
nervous, hut gazed lung ami eornesll,
mlu the depths. I hud lurned away
lu untie tny horse. Intending to mount
I.iin for homo, in deep regret at tbe
lime lost on na errand ao foolish,
"Thus," said I, " is unulher ,-ul
ussnl   Indian legend  bubble pricked."
"I never did believe iu the stury,"
suid Ihe yuung man who had nut yet
tried liis link, "and i never knew un
liiiiilii, legend thai was nut fulsc ull
tho way through."
I wus about lo make u remark u
reply whet, my attention was arretted
hy a cry from lhe remaining.yuung
inuii.
"I.oukl-   luiik at Aitiilol" bo cried.
I looked. Tbs girl had fallen forward and her face lay subn^orgod in
tbe ice euld water, To leap forward
and lift bor from her position required but au instant. Sbo was nn,
tionless. We laid iior ou tbo grass
beneath "Fathor Time," and chafed
ber hands and temples. Wu at lirst
feared that sue was dead. Tho other
girl bad a small flask of sal volatili
4ml used it, and iu a few minutes the
patient came to her senses and roso
to her feet witli assistance.
"Take—oh I .take mo homo I" she
murmured, and then she went, into i
ft of hysterics. Her screams were
fearful, and hur peals uf laughter wdru
uuearthly. It was a new experience
for mo. I had nover beforo soon ii
woman lu a state of hysteria, and till
wero at our wit's ends to know whut
to do to melon, Ihu girl. At lusl sue
ceased to shriok und laugh, and cried
softly.
"Annie,"   usked   the   uther   girl,
what's tho mniiei with vm,/ Why du
you cryf Whut did you soot You
silly  little  thing,  tu  frighten  ui  till
SU." |J
"Ohl" bIio moaned, "that faco—
thut dreadful face—the facu I suw
In tho spring."
"What was itt—toll us," we all
cried.

no construction this yeur. The rule-
payers ure not to blame for tbia, for
tbey hove voted money freely, practically lo tbe limit of thoir present
borrowing powers. The nigger on t".ie
fence who is holding the liridgo buck
appears to lie the directors of llio II.
I. T. Bridge Co., who ore Inking the
nt nmi i hm thoy will uot be responsible
and start cunstruction tilljjrfery dollur
is in sight.
• Now, us a ratcpuyor I fail lo see
where the responsibility ia. TI|oro ia
uow about $1,1011,01111 voted for lhe
bridge and it ia up to tho directors lu
get in uud spend this un construction
at ouce. And if Iho worst come to thc
worst, there is uo government on earth
who would sue this project half finish
ed. It will take considerable time to
build the piers, therefore lhe contract
should be let lit once. I lliiuk they
bavo more money now thut, thoy can
spend in twelve or eighteen mouths,
ami if tho construction is started this
year thu municipalities will have more
borrowing puwers uud will vule inure
money iu the lirst of the year 10111.
Hul us it is ut prescnl, Ihe rule
payers ou Iho whole are sick mul tired
of voting money with uo construction
starlud, nothing bul talk fur years. The
I'm,uma Canal is expected lu be opened
by llll',. We should huve Ibul bridge
ami railway ami docks completed, so
Ihul the Norlli Shure will gel ber full
share   nf   the   shipping   whicii   ia   ex
poctod ou Burrard Inlet whon tbe canal
ii oponod, aud there is no time to lose.
If tbo director! do not spend tbli
monoy at once tbo ratepayers of tbo
surrounding iniinieipnlilieii should call
iudignutiou meetings and aik tho directors to resign for tbeir "Dog in tho
maiiger" policy,'and appoint uew directors  Wbo  Will   spend   llic  Ilium".   OII
construction uud tuko tliia responsibility which suoiiia to bother tho present
directors.
Ju regard:, the difference whicii exists
regarding the span, I believe wu would
got an answer.approving the HOO foul
spun inside -18 hours from tbe government if wo u'uutcd to start construction
at once.
Thanking you for the apace.
Yours truly,
W. 8IMPSON,
Ratepayer.

Discovery of Coal
Ami this suggests tho remarkable
slory of the discovery of coal in lirit
isli Columbia. Tlte story takes one
back to the year mill—the year of the
Kubellioii Losses Bill riots iu Montreal, when the Houses of Parliament
were hunted; when Cauada cmim .t.-.l j
uf tho upper and lower provinces;
i.Imu   the   Mainline   provinces   were
I'.n.ii, culoiiiua; when tho central
prairie West wus a hunting ground of
the Hudson's Huy Compuny; ami when
llio first colonial government on the
I'acillc Coast, that of Vancouver Ik
laml, was set up.   The Hudson's Buy
uinpany wus still the great power
on tho Coast, just us it was in the
interior. Shortly before thut tipte Fori
Victoria liml beeu built und mude the
lii'iiili|uurters uf the Cuast fur trude,
At lhal lime Ihere wus iu llle service
uf the compuny ul Furl Victoria u mun
named Joseph W. Mackay. One day
iu December, lnl!!, while Muckuy was
engaged in lhe company 'a office post
ing books, the foreman  of the liliick
inilli shop that stood a few yards
away iu lhe courl yard uf flic furl, en
tered the ulliie and called aside Mae
liuy to whom he repented a remark
able slury jusl tuld him liy uu Indian.
It seemed tbut un uid Nanaimo chief,
front the vicinity of what was then
called Frotoetiou I lm i liud come to
tliu blacksmith shup for flic purpose of
having a gun repaired.   While wuiliug
10 huve his jub attended tu, he watch
ml the men ul their wurk, ami noticed
thul they kept their lurge fires hum
iug liy nuw uml then throwing uu
1 i)i-ln chunks uf "bluck stum'.'' winch,
uf course, was cuul, carried to Vicloriu
liy ship, either frum Ureal Britain ur
frum Eastern Canada. The'Indian
was surprised lu see the "black stutie"
I,urn su fiercely, ami afler inukiug a
iliuruugh examination uf the cuul In
loluuteoied the statement Ihut there
was plenty-of "black stone" where he
In ed.
Tito slury at once intcrcited Mac
liay, ami returning tu tin- blacksmith
shop with the fuicniuii, he had lhe
Indian repeat Ins sfnfcnicnl witii ntofe
details than lie had given flic furcman
Then Mackay made an offer that to
a t'uasl Indian was very attractive
lie wuuld nul uuly repair tbe ubl
chief's gun free uf charge, but he
would give linn a buttle uf rutu if he
wuuld bring lo lhe blacksmith shup
some uf the "bluck stuue" Ihut he
said  wus tu be fuuml in bis couutry.
The Indian accepted   the  ulTcr, aud
illi   his    gun    repaired  set  out  for
home, promising to bring soon lo tli
blacksmith   simp   Ihe   "black   itoue'
lhal wns In curn the butfle nf rum.
Tho First Cargo of Coal
Months passed ami nulliing further
mis beard uf flic old chief ami Ins
"black stone." Jt wus suppust'd at Ihe
fori ti..ii he hud furgollen all ubuul
Ins promise tu earn Ihe buttle uf ruin.
The suppositions were wrong ll wus
illness and nul negligence ur bud fuitli
that kepi Ibe Indian from returning lu
Victoria ami fulfilling Sis prutunc
Witn the return ol spring came a re
n,in uf health. Oue day early in April
llu- ubl chief diew_ up his cuing'
uu lhe shure near the furt al Virluna
11 was heavily laden, fur In bud
lnouglif lo the fort a cargo of eual
The nn,I was carried up lu lbc
blacksmith shop, and some of it was al
ouce tested in lbe forge, when it was
! Ui
proved to bffof-ennllent quality. Tho
Indian told whore he had found tlte
"black stone," and ho was given tbe
promised bottle of rum and something
besides; ami so it canto to thu knowledge of white ni.ii that there wero
depusits of coal in Vancouver Island.
With this valuable informutiuii iu
liis pussession, Muckuy at once organized n prospecting purty, and folluw
iug tbu old chief's directions, the men
soon caiiit) to the laml on the oast
mini,- of the Islund, near where now
inn,I   the eity of Nanaimo.
Tho coal deposits were found juat
as the imi hi nl old Indian hud described fliem, After making a inure or luss
superficial survey ami obtaining a
■ iiinii quantify nf cuul, Muckuy uml his
companions returned tu Furt Victoria,
w'Iiiti' a favurablii report uu the dis
covery wus made to tho company's
higher officials, It wus forthwith tic
1 t-rmimii to turn the discovery to
practical account, but owing In olher
pressing business tile coul deposit was
neglected for sonic time.
Building of Forts
.'-Iiiuiii after this the company built
a fort on lhe northeastern corner uf
Vuncouver Island, uml called il Kurt
lluperl.
Besides being used'us it trailing post
it was ulso used to protect the coul
deposits now known lo exist in Ihis
part uf Vancuuver Island. Captain
McNeill, uf the sleamer Heaver, was
placed in command, Uml second tu liim
wus ti man tiapied Bleukiusnp,
Another furl was built ul Nuttainio,
completed in lr.:,l, and eual milling
wus seriuusly proaecuted, although uu
u small scale.
Al ubuut tbis time there wus brought
out from Scotland lu Furl Hupert a
Scottish family by the name ul .Minr.
The bead uf tiie family wus u iiiiiii uf
strung character, Julm Muir, inul he
uml ull lhe male nteinliers ul ilu- I'iiiii

soon as they louk huhl of the wurk al

was cumuii'iici'il ul a spot half a mile
distant urliu the furl Hesides tin
Muirs there were ulher whiles en'
gaged in the wurk ami a number uf
Indiana.
The shiifl wus iui iluwti very deep
when the enterprise slruck trouble.
The Indians demanded pay Inr llm
land ur fur lbc eual taten frum it. ami
when ibeir demand wu» refused they
surruumlcil the jut's uiiiiilii uml
threatened In kill all engaged in Ibe

but trouble followed with thc whit,

The result was that mining at Knit

being better at Nanutmo, Muir unl ins
family removed Ittere in I>.".I, taking
wilb Ihem the mining machinery.
Development of the Industry
tho company with groat energy, and
beforo tbo end of tbe year 1858 no less
than two thousand toi|s of coal were
shipped, one-half of wbicb was taken
out witn tbu assistance of tbo Indians.
At Nanaimo the coal sold for eleven
dollurs a ton. Carried by skip to San
Fruuciscii, it sold for twenty-eight dollars ti ton. And so, at this early dato,
Nnuuimo became the centre ot tko
eual industry of British Columbia.
A fow statistics to indicate tbo
growtli of the industry. In 1871 British Columbia produced 110,788 tous of
coul, and Nova Scotia 11711,1)114 tons, in
uo oilier parts of Canada was eoal
producstli
In 1.880 New Brunswick become a
small producer, and in lllllll Albofta
und Saskatchewan entered tbe Held.
Today lhe lutul eual iirodurtiun uf
t'uimilii amounts to ubuut thirteen mil
lion t(/iis a year, uf which uuc-lnilf ia
produced by Nova Scotia, uud oue
fourth by Hritisb Columbia. Alberta
stands third, uml Miiskiilchewan
fourth. New Brunswick |>ruduc4s
aliuiii fifty thousand tuns und the Yukon ubuut um' thousand tuns. Tbu iu
