Talking about tho new coal company
near Cowley, J. F. Stamford hns the
following to say.
I think that the Northwest ConI and
Coke company, to say nothing of its
president, is entitled to' some' praise
from Canadians in attracting so rniich
"English capital Into the country. Our
method of engineering it has not ens', a
cent to Cannda. Tim new company
will purchase from the Canadian gov
ernment before May 1st, 2(5,000 acres of
coal lands for which it is paying S-tfiO,-
000; This land is situated twenty-two
miles hortliwei-t from Cowley, a station
on iiie Canadian rM-.li!-- CiGWn Noot
hraiu-li, forty mllfH west nf the boundary
nf lirlthh Columbia. - The coal is on a
strip of ground a hiiudi-eil and twenty-
live feet in depth comprising nine a-enms
between six Hnd thirteen feet in thick-
ness. It is bituminous in quality, clone-
ly resembling the product of the Crows
Nect company, ' We are nf the opinion
thnt with lim building of a brntich railway from Cowley, wc shall he able to
placo coal on the innrket clieapcr than
the rates which nre now quoted hy the
Crows Nest people. The land itself is
worth 815 nn acrq for ranching purposes, thnt being tho price quoted by
the holders ol Ihe land surrounding
our hlsck. The Crows "Sent company
has a vast coal area, but the surface of
its; ground is mountainous nnd more or
less ditlicult of access.
The first thing lor the new company
to oo, continued President Stamford,..is
to arrange the flotation of the organization. Practically the whole of the
money necessary is up, and has been
put up In London for Romo time past.
Quito a little capital will be necessary
to successfully compete, as the coal
areas of the Crows Nest people are extensive. The railway is the next thing
to be engineered.. In 1903 we succeeded In getting a. charter ■ from the Dominion government to bnild this
branch and connect with the: Crows
Nest branch of th« C. P It The.charter allows a capitalization of £300,000
for a fully equipped Hue. This will be
amply sufficient for our needs, and we
have already got figures from; railway
contractors as to the coaet of gradiii-. of-j
the prairie country. At prcseiajf. there
is no subsidy-granted the Iii-.'-. but ns
tho company is prepared to«..ay over a
quarter-million dollars tti_f.hu govern-
ment for the purchase of these lands,
and is ready to spend several .millions
more in the development of the prop
erty, we think we deserve the custom-,
ary consideration. Moreover . .this
brmicli lino*will, gender the fcoiintry
tnore accessible to"setttew,'-amt"3r.<s_uihi
sidy Iri this direction will he but in conformance with Iho geniiral policy of the
Ottawa government.
- Before many months, concluded Mr.
Stamford, you will see an active start
made not only with the coal lauds hut
with the projected railroad. Neither is
much use without the other.

The heer made  by the  Fort Steele
Brewing Co  is making Fernio faihous
for something i esides coke,  coal   and
calamities.   Tho erection of tho brewery was commenced in   1900,   and   the
first beer sold in 1901.   On tho first of
January, 1901,  an  Incorporated   company with a capital  stock   of $125,000
took over  the  business    A.   Mtitz  is
president; G. FI. Scntt,  vice-president:
nnd W.   S.  Fairfield,   secretary.   Tho
directors are G. II Scott, T. B. Martin,
E. A Woods and R L.   T.  Galbraith.
The brewery has 1800 barrels of l-e.-r on
hand enough to stave off a largo drouth
in case watar got .carco .around   these
parts.   Tho product last  month   was
1200 barrels, and this month it will be
much greater.   The company has commenced paying dividends, and expects
to pay from 10 to l"i per cent this year.
The company has 541,000  invested 4n
hotels between- Waalner and Frank,
and at the latter town   has  a  branch
brewery.   The company  has recently
purchased tho Fernie brewery from X.
Klaiuman and partners for something
like 811,000, and will  close  that plant
for n time, until  ii  uecouiet*  lit-ueiisaiy
to use it as an  auxiliary.   A.-Mutz  is
ono of tho best known  men alonR  the
Crow, and Is ono of our most energetic
and  enterprising  citizens.   Ho    hails
from the land whoio drinking and making beer has been reduced to  an enact
science    Strongly sided by his worthy
secretary, W. S. Fairfield, ho is rapidly
mi-king tho brewery ono nf tho great
Industries of East Kootenny, and  driving the more concentrated bevernt;e.8
further along tho tunnul of prosperity.
A visit to tli,o   works  in   interesting.
Tho site contains three acre.* and it is
one of   tho  best  in   tho world    The
stream of water running through tho
grounds is pure and rr-tptirt-.s no doctoring.   Pure water is probably more es-
sentlal to a brewery than a dairy.
In thc witter tank room theroarc two
large tanks. The ono for hot beer
holds 10 barrols, and tho other for fire
and beer purposes has a capnclty of
150 barrels. A steam pump keeps the
arrets filled.
b()n tho tiro-proof roof an excellent
chance is afforded to study tho sct-nic
beauties that surround tho great coal
metropolis, anil thorn Is plenty of space
for a largo beer  garden,   including  a

Laurier does not seem inclined to
treat tho west with the fairness that
we should receive lrom the Federal
government. The Cttlpary IIer.ild
treats tho matter aa follows:
Thc new provinces aro threatened
with a shabby deal-in many directions by the Lnuricr government.
One cf the really alarming ten tares of
tho autonomy bill, overlooked in the
heat of thc controversy, aroused by
th' educational clauses relates to the
co .1 lnduttry.
Thoro are large mines at Bankheacl,
Blairmore,: Frank, CoK-nian, Lund-
brcck, Lethb'ldgo, Canmore, the
Blacktoot Reserve, Knee Hill, Edmonton,, and elsewhere. At present
it is estimated that 3 000 tons per day
are mined in tho provinces.   On this
Soduct the .Dominion government
llects a royalty of ten cents a ton or
$300 per d.;y. - The revenue from
thU'soutce must increase enormously **i-itliin a lew years and the autonomy bills as now framed contemplate
making tills royalty a permanent asset of the Dominion Government.
What puts this notion in the worst
light is that both Ontario and British
Columbia were conceded this income
from their" Inception. The Dominion
government rejects all propositions
looking to fair treatment in this respect.
The whole thing is on a par with
what this part ofthe country has always received frou. the Laurier government -
• Premier Ilaultain and the west
generallyr have stend-ly maintained
that the new, provincesjihould have
"control ot'tlie pnblio'o'omain. "v-at-th*
Dominion ■*-overnnien*:!'fnsI-it3 that the
lands and timber shul hot.be administered by the new provinces.
-Not only has Sir Wilfred Laurier
attempted to . maintain the position
that tl e west is not lit to recast and
control its educational syBtem, but
wherever he has seen an opportunity
to centralize the ad ministration ofthe
new provinces in Ottawa ho has
grasped It It i this' unscrupulous
determination to cut ofT tho great
natural resources of .the west and destroy-the inspiration cf an independent educational policy, that marks
the acts of the Dominion government
as most menacing.
Richard Hunter suicided in Toronto beside his wile's coffin. Ho did
not have tho courage to live on with-,
mt her. Thus tho world wags on.
3ome men kill themselves because
their wives die, anal others because
thoy will not die. Either way is
usually fatal.
A citizen ol Cranbrook took a bath
the other evening and it felt so good
thnt he tell asleep in it and did not
wake up fur four .hours. When he
did he was nearly frozen, atid swore
ho would never be guilty again.
However he may have drank somo.
new brand ofVhiskey that made the
bath look like a feather bed. In
Fernie no citizen was ever known to
mistake a bath for a feather bed, and

Tins Toronto Globs* states that doom
awaits the present Dominion govern
ment if it continues,to'fly in. the face
of public opinion, and intimates that
the better class ol liberals will turn
it down. Coming from the Globe
this means a greiif, deal, but the present domineering attitude ol the
Laurier government is nothing new.
All governments when ' they think
they have the cinch, owing to a large
majority, invariably become tyrannical arid the people are compelled
to step in and tie their hands in order
to save the country.

Grout Waste in Mines.
Barclay Bonthronc, M.E., who h;>s
been inspecting a number of mines in
the Kootenays, states that he found the
waste ot precious metals in thc different
mines had been appalling. This was
particularly the case wilh zinc. One
mine he examined had thrown in the
creek in the past six years fully $150,000
worth of zinc. The manager had told
him (hat the zinc market was low, and
it was before the ni.ignetia* zinc separator hud been invented and it was
thought thc mineral was useless. . They
had marketed their silver lead ore, and,
it becoming la>w grade, tbev had made
in live years $25,000 and thrown away
$150,000. Mr. Uontlirone said he
found that tailings in many instances
had been thrown away, which, if saved,
in these days of. chemical processes,
would have netted handsome sums.
He believes that today British Columbia is in far better shape than ever -is
lo her mines. And there is far more
money being made than the public are
aware of, as often the local press are
jiot anxious to' print' news of succcsfful
The Folly of Selfishness
To Nicolii'TesIa, a friend said one
There i-- this invention of Smith, and
there is this invention of Jones, and
there is thc other invention jof Robinson
lu all these inventions yours was the
leading hand. Without you Ihcy would
never had been patented. And yet you
get no credit for them. Why arc you
Mr. Tesla smiled.
That the inventions have matcralized,
that they benefit mankind, is enough,
he said. I am not selfish. My name
is honored. I live well. Why then
fihould I be so hungry for a little more
money, a little more renown? Why
should I be like the millionaire butcher
of my native town of Smiljan.
This butcher was a bachelor, and,
when he- became a millionaire, he
bought a m.ignilic-int equipage—two
prancing black horses, a set of silver
mounted harness, a coachman in livery
and so forth—and every day he drove
proudly through the town.
But he always drove alone. He
never had anyone with him. So one
day the priest of the parish said:
Why, my good man, do you always
ride alone in your grand coach? Why
do you not take any of your friends out
nith you?
Thc millionaire frowned.
If there were two of us, noonc would
know who thc team belonged to.
Very Awkwurd.
Winston Churchill, the novelist, was
talking about awkward and unusual
forms of expression.
"In Concord,'the other day," he
said, "I heard of an undertaker's
speech thai seemed lo be extremely
awkward and unusual.
"" It-was at a funeral, a funcrai in a
private house, and thc officiating clergyman was just about to begin his address, when the undertaker tiptoed up
to him, and said in a hoarse whisper :
" 'Excuse me, doclor, hut the corpse's
brother wishes to speak to you.' "

True Dollcncy.
Adrian Fairley, the noted portrait
painter, was talking in his New York
studio about delicacy.
" I was very poor in my youth," he
said, " bnt, despite my poverty, 1
always managed tobe delicate, tactful,
and polite. I often had lo put off my
creditors, I often had to do many disagreeable things, but I always did
them in a del'catu way.
"Once, for instance, I orJered a
5-ccnt plate of soup in a Bowery restaurant. When the waitress brouglu
this soup to me, its condition was such
that 1 felt called upon to rebuke her.
I couched my rebuke in delicate terms.
" 'Emma' I said, taking something
out of the soup and holding it up before
the girl, 'I am grateful to you for this
remembrance, but next lime kindly
give it tome in a locket.' "

A Moment of Kinbnrrnssnicnt
Dr. Henjamin Lee, secretary of the
fitate board of licalfh of Pcniisylvaiiuia,
was talking about the eyes of foreigners compared with those of Amcritiuis.
Abroad, he said, and especially in
Italy nnd in Soul hern France, the number with bad eyes U shocking. Indeed
among the poor, nearly every other
man you sec appears to have a cross-
eye or a blind eye, or saline oilier optica] deformity.
In the excellence of our eyes, even
more than in the excellence nf our
(cut!*, we Americans are far ahead of
other nsiti-'iw. Cross eyes arc almost
unknown among us. Hence, in America,.there would hardly have happened
thc disaster lhat happened once in Nice.
A cross-eyed Frenchman ntlviided a
dance given in llie Nice Palais de I.i
Jctcc—in tlie beautiful Casino, ofi' the
Promenade des Anglais, that is built
out over the blue Mediterranean.
At this dance the Frenchman saw
wnted by his side two hulk's whom he
knew. He approached and conversed
