PLENTY OF COAL
George McKenzie and his partners
on their long tramp in northern
B. C. found a vast sea n ■ of coal.
McKenzie will* not disclose the location but he says it is within conveu
ient distance of where tho Grand Trunk
Pacilie must run'. He snys the seam is
100 feet wide, between sandstone and
conglomerate formations,' and In one
place is cut by a stream which exposes
a depth of 50 feet.
It was In order to interest capital in
the coal mine nnd ,lso to learn the
value of some quartz finds that McKenzie made his 400 milo tifp over the
northern mountain ranges on snow-
shoes. Leaving his ipartners in camp
last February, lie turned hi • face Pa-
cificwards, carrying a 50 pound pack
and samples that weighed 20 pounds.
Not a human being did he incut for 200
miles He crossea four mountain
ranges, and for 20 consecutive nights
he slept in the snow without oven a teut
to cover him.
In order to travel as light as possible
ho took no gun, and his only weapon of
offense in caso of attack by wild animals
was nn axe Tho only game he sought
for fooa was rabbit. It took him just
40 days to reach Port Essington, at the
mouth of tho Skeena River, whero he
caught a steamer for Vancouver. He
looks as though the trip did him good,
and he is recommending it to his friends
for the benefit of their health. He
plans to return in a few days. He will
tnke the Hudson's Bay company steamer up the Skeena to Hazelton, and from
thero ho will have another walk of 250
miles overland to where his partners
anxiously await his report He says
the district he has prospected bears no
evidence of ever having been visited
by white men before Ho claims to
have been tho first white man to ni.ike
this trip and nobody seems inclined to
dispute the assertion.

THE   VITAL   QUESTION
During the past-month several conferences have been held between the
representatives of the Miners' Union
and the ollieials of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Ca «itli a view of making
<i satisfactory working arrangement
between'the com puny . .u.-d' it-J employees, effective in June. It was
seen that the present agreement could
not bo terininatcil without giving the
CO day's n/itice. So on the Gih of
April the Union-gave notice Uuit on
the Gih of June they ivould terminate
the present agreement. At the conference held last Saturday a deadkek
ficcurred ujioii the first clause of the
proposed new basis by the Union for

(Krom Fort Steele Prospector).
Placer gold is not the only attraction that Wild Horse Creek Ira to
offer. Several silver lead properties
are being developed.
The outlook is, favorable for the
Hull River Company to start opera-
lions about May 1st.
The Sullivan group of Mines bus
reduced its working force owing to
the large amount of ore on hand. _ As
soon as tlie smelter is in operation,
work lit the mine will be resumed.
St, Eugene—The great showing ol
.silver lead ore in this mine continues
to le the chief topic of conversation
among mining men. Its production,
will earn for the miners .this month,
$25,0.0, fully one third of the Domin
ion lead bounty.
The Bull River group of iron mines
has been developed to an extent that,
enabled its owners to crown grant 3U
locations.
Quite a bit of wo; k will be done on
several properties on the east fork ol
Wild Horse Creek this year.
: James Nelson and Kris Kohl are
now engaged in doing the annual assessment work on a copper property
near St. Mary's Lake.
Frank Tracy with a small working
force has commenced development
work on a group of copper claims
near the head of Whitellah Creek.
John P. L:irsen is running a tunnel
several hundred feet to reach an old
channel on Wild Uorsc Creek. The
gravel coming'out of the tunnel is
rich enough to pay all expenses.
From present indications the SuI
livan group of mines, near Kimberly.
will soon develop into a producer ot
great value.
The work ol preparing  for begin
ning operations, thi." season, on Wild
Horse Creek is going on  actively in

Salvatora Gattonu, an Italian just ten

lust Saturday at Coal Creek. While
several"t'acn were engaged in pinching
down coal cars to ho loaded at this
tipple, he stopped iu between tlio curs
while they were in motion and was disembowelled, dying in five minutes. He
was ill years old, and leoyep a wife and
child in Italy. When' killed ho had
sJJ3tln his pockets.
The funeral look pjncu an Sunday,
and was largely attended. From the
undertaking parlor.* of Scott ik Rush the
funeral, nceouipauied by tho Italian

killed the owners cf the team would

grief as runaways are of frequent occurrence, and it is a daily sight to see
very small children playing on the

The Cranbrook "Herald has entered
on its eighth year, and has a type sotting machine Its editor is uot an
iconoclast and has few real, bitter enemies Ho believes in soft soap locals
and sugar-coated editorials, and never
dips his pen in green paint or vitriol un
less ho attacks those with fow friends
and no. commercial standing. Simpson
is alive to thu banking end of a news
papor, and does not court fame at the
expense of losing his bank roll. Hence
he is fair, fat, forty, and will probably
die with his boots under the bed.

At Babvlon recently some love letters written on bricks were doff up.
In tho old days writing love letters
must have been a serious matter.   A
young man would need an  express
"wairon todeliver anordinary missive.
To have ft young lady hand  bank
your letters when Babylon was on
the boom must have been a  great
sight.   Imagine writing to a Babylonian damsej for several summers
and then fall out, with a demand for
your sweet missives.   -Some  fellows
could build a  house.   Tho    report
does not say what the  bricks  were
made out of. but wo suppose the same
stuff as the writers.   If love letters
were written on gold bricks a  roan
could never get them back when the
break came, and his former sweetness would have consolation every
time she unlozkcr] the woodshed and
looked at tho pile of yellow bricks.
Babylon must have been a lively
place when tho citizens presented an
address to the legislature .or a convention of Rubes just in lrom the fig
country. Then when the boys left
home every mother expec.ed a brick
regularly from across the Red Sea.
Since the era we write $bbut business has been slightly dull in Babylon and we never get any job print
ing.romthcAwnat all. No doulj
In three {?*» old "
the cjty done
presume money was also , pi
bricks whiQh would make it more
fectaal when-thrown at the birds.
The advantage of this can readily be
sfeen by the initiated.* Then money
made' out of bricks^ could not be
burned, although the bricks had to
be burned before the  money   **»»
made. -
These love letters on brick  are
making Babylon again famous, although some rival camp might dig
up some wiitton ou toast or sub rosa-
Thereis no donb; that some were
written in those days on sub rosa.  In
addition to the aboveUie world owes
a debt of gratitude to Babylon.   It is
from that city that we get the word
babv, and few words i.i the English
language ai>o more impressive,   especially if. insomnia strikes one of
thera about 2 a. in., while your wife
is away burying her mother-in-law,
and the bottle of lacteal fluid lieu m
a shattered heap upon the Brussels.
Agony.       However   around     the
i.ame ot babe is clustered the sweetest memories that touch the soul of
the human race.   If the little cherubs ever cease coming this great Dominion would  soon  be of little us&
even to the 'Grand Trunk  Pacific,
and the row over the separate schools
in the far west would  become  like
the love letters in Babylon.. How-
over there is no "immediate"cause" for
alarm. ■ -'..■
IF a vote of the children in Canada
was taken there would be noseparate
schools. 	
If the Dominion would let the
provinces alone in the matter of separate schools the trouble would be
local and not general.
^Morality should be taught all
children without superstition. Superstition should bo taught them when
the children aro 21 years old.
The youngest grandfather in
America lives in Texas. Ho is 36
years old, and should have a gold
jnedal from Hoosevelt.
In Canada many Roman Catholics
protest againt sending their children
to separate schools. Tho education
received is never as efficient as that
obtained in non-sectarian institution.

greatest countries on earth  in the

Nelson,'.'BX LITTLE  SERMONS 1
(Bv Ei-BEKT Huuiiahd.)
The IeSS you  require   looking after,,     I think if 1 worked for a man I would
tlie more able you lire to stand alone
and complete your tasks, the greater
the reward. Then if you cannot - only
do your own work, but direct intelligently '.and effectively the efforts of
others, your reward is in exact ratio,
and the more people you "direct, und
the higher the intelligence you can
rightly lend, and more valuable is your
..life.   _ _ :y
It is ridiculous to suppose that a
youth' can shut himself away from the
.actual world of men, women ifirfi
tWngs, in ,a college for a few years and
then come forth and direct mortiils in
the way of lite.
Many people cannot adjust themselves to new conditions without pain.
.God is good, there is no devil but
ienr, nothiiin; can harm us, the universe
is planned for good! Ahl _ a new
thought—all life is one, and we are
' brothers to thc birds and trees. Our
life is a necessary and inlregul part of
the energy that turns the wheeling
planet,s and holds the world in space.
He who influences the thoughl of
his time, influences the thought of. all
the time that follows. He has made
ills impress on eternity. ,
Ifyouarea student in a college,
.seize upon the good that is there. You
•getgood by giving it. You gain by
giving—so give sympathy and cheerful loyalty to thciiistitutioii. Be proud of
it. Sland by your teachers—ihey are
-doing the best they can. ' If thc place
isfaully, make it a better place by an
example of cheerfully doing your work
every day the best _you .can. Mind your
awn. business.
People who live all the year in the
quiet valleys where roses continually
bloom, are not necessarily happy
work for him. I would not work for
him a part of the time, and the rest of
the lime work against him. I would
give an undivided service or none. If
you work for a man, in heaven's name,
work for him. ■
Ah! that is why 1 lift my hat to the
engineer—he is doing his work. He i-"
minding his own business.
The voice is the true index of the
soul. People who are vulgar rimy
dress correctly, and -.peak grammatically, but they continue either to screech
or to purr. The clear, low, musical
modulation belongs only to thu men
and woman who think and feel. To
possess a beautiful voice you  must  be
genuine.
In <*very successful concern, whether
it be bank, school, factory, steamship
company or railroad, ihe spirit of one
man runs through the animates of the
entire iustilution. The success or
failure of the .enterprise turns on the
mental, moral and spiritual iiuulilius ol
this one man. And the leader vvh.i
can imbue an army of workers with a
spirit of earnest fidelity to duty, an unswerving desire to do < the thing ihni
should be done, and srjways wilh animation, kindness, courtesy and good
cheer,'musl be'ranked iu: .one of the
great men of the earth.
I have noticed lhat in households
where a strap hangs behind the
kitchen door, ready for use, it is-'nol
utilized aso much for discipline as to
ease the feelings of the parent. They
say. lhat expression is a need of the
human heart! and I am also convinced
that in many hearts there is a strong
desire at limes lo "thrash" someone.
I expect to see the day when no
schoolmaster will have more ihun 20
pupils
The riaoo Culled Medicine Hat
That which follows is hot poetry.
liveiitocallitver.se might hurt some
sensitive vers'c writer. That it is ' the
genuine product of a Medicine Hal
youth, as it purports to be; we do not
doubt. Thc sentiment does ho-ioralike
to his heart and his head, for while in
one line we read that "the. birds are
warbling their songs of love," in another the youth alludes to the value of
natural gas, which means no coal to
carry or wood to chop for boys. We
, may expect that n.decided boom in boy
j immigration lo Medicine Mat will follow the printing of these lines. Nay
more, the poot'Maelntyre musi look to
bis laurels.    Here are Ihe lines:—
Just a word to let you know
Medicine Hat has no snow.
The sun is beaming  her  rays   from
above
And the birds are warbling   their songs
of love
The river has lost her cover of ice,
The winds arc calm and smell like spice
Hvre the blizzards are never felt,
They    don't  belong to  the   "Banana
Bell."
The ground has lost her snowy spread
Spring is here and winter is dead.
The grass has unearthed her  foliage
green,
And here and there butterflies are seen.
The rainclouds have visited once this
spring,
Bui with Ihem   no  flaky clouds
'bring.
The farmers have started their crops
to sow
The skating season ceased long ago.
The gas has beaten ils  record   this
year,
Aud is used all over without' any  fear;
Without any ashes,, or coal or wood,
I'"or  b<*ays   its  value  is    exceptionally
good.
Oh! leave your eastern frozen towns.
And leave your cares andiceand frowns
And come out to  the   Hat,   where's
felt
The balmy air of the "Banana Belt."
—Medicine Hal Youth.

"   An inventor   s.it   in   his   laboratory
smoking a cigar.
Sometimes the   best .inventions, hel
said, arc hit on (he  most   easily. * In
that case thc inventor fails to   see   the
yal.u.e of his idea and all the profit goes
istoa Ik -to snmcone else.
Take for instance,  the case ot ihsl
lucifer match.
There was a poor young schoolteacher named Isaac Holden, who used
lo get up at 4 o'block every morning to
• chemistry before his school '	
-iawTo.strike a light,
._.-    nt tfitu a nuisance, anJuo.-m'
or two'pf tf-tpewweiitin'g, jic composed
N an explosive mU<-"re which, dabbed on
.u toothpick would flame up on application of friction.'   .
The ' principal   of the   school    was I
struck with these matches, and advised ;
young Holden to patent his itJca.    But
the youti) only'augh^,   w___)  jw  pin..3
jtmyed to make matches for lis own use (
-and ho even delivered a lecture wherein
he told   the   public   how   Ihcy  might
make matches for their own   use,   too.
This invention had come to Holden sol
easily that his eyes were blinded to its
enormous value.
Too Jluch for Cowboys
Chicago—Skinner Humphrey of the
Dig Timber, Mont., passed through
Chicago en route home from the inauguration ceremonies. Mr. -Humphrey,
jm company with Long Thompson, of
Carry Owen, Fred Maxey, of CrO-v
.Agency, and ''Slider" Avery of While
Creek, talked of nothing but the in-
agttial ball.
.Talk about dressing. We do some
dog's in clothes in Big Timber, but we
were laid out cold at the ball, said
Humphrey. I
Wc gets into the ball and the- first
rbOttZ we sees was a stunning woman
_*avbrting across thc floor with a fellow
in'h swell uniform. But the girl didn't
appear to have any clothes on. She
(poked cold aud lost. Long Thompson
turned lib; head -away and blushed,
something he hadn't done since lie '.v;;:*
a calf on the range of life. He whispers to us, especially to Sliver Avery,
who v>ns staring until his eyes began
to bulge.
For God's sake fellers don't look!
'af hat pocr heifer's broke loose without
knowin' how she look*. Give her a
chance to duck.
Jjo we all shut our cye-j but Avery—
(lie never was respectable anyway. After
a time when it got tiresome we opens
our lamps, and^thcre's a hundred or
jjipfc jvomen skating around, dressed
|ikc thc first—nothing on but a lariat
and saddle blanket,
I'm going to bed, says Mnxcy, for if
I ever talk in my sleep after I get home
^nd my old woman gets 011 lo what
sinful things JVesccn here, its all day,
S.o wc back out, rejoicing that we
don't live where clothes arc so scarce.
Otherwise we had a bully time,
Teddy's i)|| fifiht. We're going to
("end him a horse this spring that will
beat anything Washington ever saw.

Ydiiiiii  men   should   not   d;il!y with

when 400 men"liayc to be hoisted the
operation consumes half au hour. Under the present system tlie first eight
men go down shortly after 6.30- a. m.
so jthat at 7 o'clock when thc working
day begins, all are in the mine. Thc
first cage of imen is hoisted exactly 8
hours later, namely at 3 p. in., so that
it is nearly 3.30 p. m. f-efo.rs the last
man is out of the minp. it is therefore quite possible for 3 man to be
nearly nine hours underground, a'-
ihough as a rule the C{i\s( oi going and
CQiriing is so far adhered to lhat few-
are below more than eight find a half
hours.
. Under the regulation which will now
go into force the first man cannot leave
the pithead until 7 a, m.and the last
man must be out of the mine a' 3 -p.
m. ' 'r'This means that the average
time below ground will be seven and a
half hour!*, a loss nf about nn hour per
man qf working time, which means
that niupy of thc miners will not put iu
more, than five and a half hours actually digging coal.
It should be pointed out that thi:* law
asa matter of fact, has been on llie stntutp
book for one year. All that the new
act does is to provide penalties for its
infringement.
