' Premier Walter, Scott 1ms promised
to take over for the provincial government the mining rights in the locality
near. Eagle Lake, where tho coal discovery has recently beenjnnde. .Mr.
Scott was seen at his home in Reg-ina by
\V. A. MacLeod, who was appointed by
the Eagle,Lake, settlers lo see if, they
could get, the" benefit this coming;;fall
and winter of .the discovery so providentially 'made' by" one of their number.
Mr. Scott said it was against the policy
of the government to undertaket_the
operating or ownership- of coal mines,
but" in view of llie exceptional circumstances of the .case;-and-the hardsliips
and suffering that might'; ensue iff the
settlers iii this "important district" faced
another winter withoiit a sufficient; fuel
'supply." Mr; Scott decided to- have the
mine, should the seam discovered prove
a good one, developed for the'use of the
settlers "by the' provincial government,
and with that purpose "'entered at once
into communication with the department of the interior at Ottawa.—Ex.
