DISASTER
Many Miners Imprisoned in
Mine Without Hope of Rescue
—The Explosion Was Due to
Black Damp.
Fayette City, Pa., Dec. 3.—Between 2!i and 30 miners, probably
more, aro entombed in the Naomi
mine ot the United Coal Co., located
3 miles westof this city and there is
practically no hope that they are
ulive. Their imprisonment is due to
an explosion of black damp, about
eight o'clock Sunday night, soon after
the night force went to work.
It is said thnt a miner entered an
old working with an open lamp and
c.used the explosion. Had the disaster occurred any o.her night except
Sunday the number of victims would
hnve leen twice as large. The mine
employs from 275 to 300 regularly,
abuut one fourth of them working tt
night, but Sunday nights only ball
the night force goes to work.
The shock ol the explosion shook
buildings in Fayette City and could
be heard for miles.
The entrance is located at the hrst
air shaft and from this deadly gas is
pouring in great volumes and so
poisonous thnt no human being oan
live in it tor more than a few minutes,
and lor ihis reason it is not believed
a single one of the entombed men is
still alive.
INQUIRY  TERMINATES

Cheap Jap Labor
Vancouver, Dec. 3.—Commissioner
King brought his inquiry into Japa
nese immigration to a close on Saturday alternoon. The contracts of Gotch
with the Wellington Collieries Co.,
signed by lieutenant-governor James
Dunsmuir, and with the C.P.R, were
brought out, Gotch strenuously
objected to their being given publicity
but on a threat that tbe persons con
cerned would be compelled to testify
hc allowed the documents to go in,
The Wellington agreement provided
for five hundred men, to be given fron.
$135 to $100 per day, and was to
remain in force Ior live years, save on
s'xtyd.ys'notice by either party of
termination. The immigration com
pany wus to enjoy a monopoly ol
supplying Japanese labor aa long as
they were able to meet demands.
Gotoh sadly said that they had only
furnished forty men under this contract.
The ngrreincnt with the C.I'.R. was
to run until 11112, with a ili.ry diy
notice clause, and the immigration
oompany promise'; to furnish as many
competent workmen and laborers as
were demanded (run. time to time.
Wages of $1.35 to $1.05 per day was
guaranteed,
iV letter Irom superintendent Busteed dated April, stnted that from four
hundred to two thousand Japanese
culd be taken by the road tliis year
Gotch snid tbe men were employed on

also furnished men for porters who
ran uver the whulo line.
C. Gardner Johnson and W W.

ollicers in the Collieries Co., examined

denial that Consul Morikwa was
connected with tl.e company, The
coniiuissn.n then linally rose,
A DELICATE SUBJECT

cuss Hindoo Immigration.

CIVIC INTEGRITY,
Those who are contemplating offering themselves as candidates lor civic
honors in the approaching municipul
elections will do well to carefully
weigh the pros und cons ul the situation belore openly avowing themselves
ready to iio all and dure nil I r the
e-.ke ol the city of their adoption, Thc
citizen who is elected to represent the
people must be prepared to stand a
considerable amount of abuse Irom the
very community who elected him und
he must also be hardened to criticism
just und unjust, at the same time
being prepared and willing at any
time to give up bis whole attention to
civic utfairs. The new council will ns
usual be met with u considerable
b.mk deb. as a legacy and having this
looming up constantly belore then.,
as a bird nf ill omen, they should tn*
deavor to Irame new conditions and
new methods ul governing the people
which would hnve direct intlences on
the finances ol the city and the lightening oi the load that our people are
now supporting. It cannot be denied
that Revelstoke today is un a better
footing than must cities of the province, but tbis superior stand point
could easily be arrived ut without the
imposition oi heavy tajes upon the
populace. A high tax rate ie damning
to the city's credit. Iron, an outsider's
pointol view, und is really unnecessary. Improvements should be paid
for over a term ol years, and the current revenue uui for other purposes.
Preslige is hardly earned, i! it meant
the bleeding of the citizens. Civic
finances should be the cbiel subject in
the coming municipal electioni .iri.l n
long lighted p die; is needed to bring
back tbe Handing ol tbe community
to what il -I. mid be, We would urge
therefore tint those who ure seeking
civic bom n ihould bave the Interests

to municipal business, Munioipnl

Great Interest Shown in British

Hun. H. ti. Tatlow, minister nf
Finance nnd Agriculture, is in receipt
of a letter front Martin Burrell, of
Grand Forks, B. C, who, with It. M.
Palmer is in Great Britain with the
fruit exhibit irom British Columbia.
Mr. Burrell states that they have attended exhibitions iu Exeter, Edinburgh, Blnokheath, Dartlord and
Hereford, Un each occasion the B. C.
exhibit wus placed in t. favorable position nnd attracted keen interest.
He suys that u good deal ol stress
is luid on the artistic oharaotei of the
arrangements nnd endless ell'ort is
spent on what may be called the purely decorative side of things, and the
award, therefore, of the Booietv's large
silver medal for our exhibit which
was su largely of the commercial character) may be regarded as u satisfactory recognition of the line quality
aiiiLclenn character ol the British
Columbia fruit,
A good deal of our trull wat dis.

Conditions ol the clock Marke!
are Improving,
K. A. tlii.".'.v. report*.— L'i.rrc are
evidences ibat lhe financial depres^i -u
experienced during the pist three
moths has run its course nnd that
conditions are improving. Information from the coist s'ates that while
there nre many unemployed, money is
eafi"r. Eastern re oris hI.ok returning
confidence and resumplion of lactori.-s
and industries that had closed down.
A significant fact, illustrative of the
easing of the money nia.kit, was the
intimation by Montreal bankers to tbo
brokers that they sre again prepan i
to finance all legitimate stock trans
actions. The icsttlt i. mm- ,.,.-s
have relleet.-d Lett'r conditions by ..
general rise in price. Especially i-
tli is true ol the copper stocks. Colliery
shares arc in good demauil, especially
tl.e, issue of the new Itoyal Collieries,
as this mine is under the manage ...cm
that made the (Iruuhy famous and
achieved such a success of International Coal, It is stated this stock
will now he withdrawn front tbe market as all the capital required has
been subscribed.
Railway earnings are perhaps the
best bato.neter ol business conditions
aud it is a matter ol satisfaction that
notwithstanding the exceptionally
large earnings ol the last week of
November nl last yenr, the ssme ptr-
iod (ur this year has eclipsed lust
year's earnings by a quarter of a million dollars. That does not look much
like bad trade conditions.
Granby directors meet this week to
consider the coming dividend. It is
likely the rate fnr the present will be
cut to 8 per cent. Tlie rate has iately
beer 12 percent. When tbe company
closed its balance sheet in June it Iwd
a surplus ol $2,776,778, and this surplus has probably been since increased,
While mines have been shut down
in the West, Cobalt has just come to
the (ront with the largest week'i ship
m nt yet made, namely 5(J0 tons of
high-grade silver ore, mainly Irom the
La RoBe and Temiskaming mines.
For investors who are waiting f,.r
bedrock prices to make big profits on
a rising market, now would appear to
he tlie psychic time to place their
investments.
CANADA'S CALL LOANS
Canadian Banks Can Readily
Realize on New York Loans.
Several Canadian daily papers have
been printing the statement that tbe
Canadian hanks cannot realize on
their call loans in New Yoik so as to
make the money immediately available Ior Canada, owing to the difficulty
in securing gold, says the Financial
Post. These statements have ken
made on a superficial view of the situation. Even if sterling exchange is
dillicult to sell and gold hard to obtain
in New York, the balances to the credit
of the Canadian banks in New York,
resulting from the sale of securities on
call could be utilized in the payment
of Canadian debts in the United
States, the balance of trade always
being in favor of tlie latter. Without
ascertaining the actual amount of call
loans abroad, the newspapers have
stated the amount as of September 30,
which wns then ifi! 1,158,1)1)1, whereas
on October 31, the am. unt actually
was $37,040,377, and all of this amount-
is not in New York. This sum bus
been still further reduced, thus demonstrating tbe availability ol this form
of reserve. That gold, h wever, can
be obtained, is shown in th.i following
letter, written hy Mr. R. Y. Hebden,
agent of the Bank of Montreal in New
York:
November 20,1907,
Editor the Wall Street Summary:
Sir—I notice a statement run over
your ticker sorvicc tliis morning say
ing that the Canadian chartered banks
have $62,158,631 out in call loans in
Wall Street. This is quite incorrect
and very misleading. The item, which
I assume you hare taken Irom the
government returns, is that for "ca
and short loans elsewhere than in
Canada," snd is not by any means
confined to Wall Street, but includes
London, Eug., ss well. Our call loans
here are not half the amount you
name. II necessary we could eusily
call them in, and by the purchase of
cable transfers place the money in
London, from whence wc could readily
obtain the gold, lor use either here or
in Canada.
Very truly yours,
(Signed) R.Y. HEBDEN,
Agent

ri: iOI.UOU,
W.Ellis, of Vancouver, a member
ol the commute*, uf the British Columbia Timbei end Forestry Chamber
ol Commerce, is in Victoria, with the
object of organizing a brunch oi llie
association in that city. Its objects,
according to Mr. Ellis, are to organize
all persons interested in the lumber
and 1 gging industries, whether as
operators or aa owners of standing
timber, with a view to the promotion
uf tl eir cuiiiinon inteiest.. and ...ore
particularly t'. secure amendments at
t .e nexl session ol the provincial ieg-
i ... in i. c to ii.. I iv gi.verni.ig tiinbi r
license.., r*p, ,.,.i..; nl is iliiaaiuu M , j
ii l.-s iti:
"IVe have organiz d the p.rent
branch io Vm c uver, ami intend establishing others iu all pans of the
province where ihere are peoplo Intel-
ested in tl.e lumber indiis.ry. One of
our chief objects is to get a heller title
10 the timber than the timher licensiS
now issued confer. At present they
aie issued loi 21 years, and there is no
assurance tbat at the end o! that time
tl.e licensees will not lose ml rights
over all timber remaining uncut.
"Twenty-one years seems a long
time iu which to cut oft' a bnncb of
timber, but it is not so long when the
amount of timber tbat has be. tt taken
up under licenses is considered. Some
1*J,0UI) licenses have lie-.. i. >e.i out
within tl.e past yeai, ami ... e-tiinate
the avetage timber on th.so huldiuge
at 10,1X10 leet. to the acre is icy conservative. Iu lact, practical men
would not bother to takt up timber
ands that would not make a better
showing than that to thc acic, but as
it is known that a goj.l d nl of poor
timber bas been takeu up, 1 ... ke that
figure, knowing ut any iuie that it is
not near the murk.
"Accepting that estimate, you have
sixty-tour billion feet of timber taken
up during the last year, without
counting any crown grant timber, or
that held under leasehold. Now our
present output is from live to six hundred million feet per annum, and putting it at the higher figure it will
take over a hundred years to cut
the timber taken up under licenses
without diluting in the immense
acreage he'd under crown grant or
leasehold. Ol course the timber cannot be cut in the 21 years specified,
so what will be the result? Either tbe
timber will be cut wholesale and
thrown upun the market at any price,
thus completely demoralizing the industry, or else owners will go through
thoir holdings ouly cutting ll.e pick
of the timber. This will mean a great
lose of revenue to the province iu
stumpage, ue when the eyes uf the
property, so to speak, have thus beeu
picked out, what is left will not be
worth while logging by itself, so a
great deal of timber that would otherwise be utilized and stumpage pakl
thereon, will remain uncut, and so le
wasted,
"What f.i ' is a provision that
a holder. i a I cense should have an
option for another twenty-one years'
license. Thus, if he cannot cut within the limited time, there will be uu
incentive to slaughter the property
for the sake of what tew dollars ho can
get.
'In order to prevent wealthy men
ol large means holding large tracts
indefinitely Ior speculative purposes,
we wuuld suggest that owners of a
tract of timber of a certain size be
compelled to have a mill iu operation
on his I nuts, iu older to quality for
a renewal of his license, or else that a
larger rental be charged him. No
exact proposition has yet been formii
lated, but thc idea of those behind
this movement is lo get ull those in
terested together and lind out what il
tbe consensus uf opinion as to what is
best to be done, and then present the
result to the government in tbe lorm
of a petition,"
