With the touring geologists who
risited Rossland on Friday lust was
Hon. Louis Coderre, who, iu the eap-
u'ity of Minister of Mines, while also
being Secretary of State, ds engaged
in a survey of the mineral resources
of the Dominion, over which be has
jurisdiction. To the Miner, after accompanying the geologists underground, Mr. Coderre spoke interesting
ly of his experiences and gave his im-
|u'i'J-iou> of Rosslund and hit toui
On the subject of a separate individual
department of the government to con-
tiol mining matters, and the appointment of an experienced head, the minister st ited that this had not been con
fidered by the government, but that
in view of the general requests,
u decision would likely be arrived at
soon.   Mr. Coderre spoke as follows:
"The tour that 1 am now taking has
been ljuite u revelation to me. Al -
though 1 had read much of the mining
resources of Canada, one has to eome
out among the mines toappreciate
what is being done. Not being very
iamiliar with the minerf, I havesei/.ed
with enthu.-dasm the opportunity that
was given me to come west with the
excursion. If I had followed the main
line to the coast I believe I should
have enjoyid my trip, but 1 should
have missed much experience of value
to me as minister of mines, which
■!n -■ evcursion in theCrows' Nest Pass
Slocan and Rossland have given me.
Seeing what I have seen and hearing
what I hear on the journey, from these
learned men, I believe I shall be in a
better position to do justice to my
post as minister of mines. On this
my first trip west of Winnipeg, 1
have found that there is nolimit to
the country. 1 have been greatly impressed, not only by tlie mineral re-
sources which are in part being develop
ed, but also by tlie rich agricultural rs
eourcee, both in the wlmat belt and in
British Columbia, with ils orchards
and flowers. 1 believe 1 shall return to
Ottawa better, physi.'ally and intellec
tually, and a broader citizen of this
Canada of ours.
"'1 wish the west and the east could
meet oftener. 1 believe then the needs
of the two would be understood by all,
und that everybody would be better
disposed to make compromise on cer
tain questions of common interest.
Compromise is, I believe, what is
needed today, if we want the country
to remain the Canada we know."
On Ix'ingasked about his trip underground in Rossland, Mr. Coderre spoke
of having visited the Le Roi, Centre
Star. War Eagle and Trail smelter nnd
he was of the opin.o i  what      he
had seen in the way of mineral resources, is insufficiently known
throughout the country, lt required
men of Courage, he said, to put their
money into the opening up of such
mines, and, if they continued to be as
successful as appeared, be oelieved
that the government could do no better
in the interests of the whole country
than to help the men responsible for
the development in all ways possible..
Replying to a query as to \hepro -
posed separate mining department of
the government, the minister staid:
"I really believe that the mines and
mining department is one of the most
important today and will soon become
the most important. Consequently the
administration of such a department
will certainly require all the time that
a good man could give to it.
"I believe that the government has
already considered that question of
giving the department of minesto a
man whose duties would be to administer the department of mines and
no other. As the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern B. C. have de -
rided to bring that question before
thc Cabinet, I believe a decision in
the matter will have to be reached
"What can 1 add to all this except
lo tell you how much we all appreciate the hearty welcometendered to Us
at Rossland. This has been the case
everywhere in the West."—Rossland
One ol" lhe busiest men in Revelstoke
these days, ia Mr. T.E.L, Taylor, Secretury of the Revelstoke Agricultural
Association ail I upon whose shoulders
falls the brunt of making arrangements  lor the coming fair.
Between now and September 10th tbe
opening day of the great annual celo -
brution, the secretary will have his
hands full indeed, giving attention to
the thousand and oue details arising
out of the three day exhibition.
A Mail-Herald reporter succeeded yesterday in snatching a ten minute in -
terview with THE SECRETARY.
"Yes,'' said Mr. Taylor, "these fairs
und exhibits are all very well for the
people who do the heavy standing
around, ulso for the fifthy lucres on,
but diflerent here Say I, and it will be
a tremendous relief to me when the
big event is over. Look at all those
letters, from different sections through
out this Interior, aBking for copies of
our program und prize list, and seek -
ing information regarding the shipping
und staging of exhibits. And those
are only a few of the 1500 inquiries
which will be pouring in during the
coming week. I s'ometimes wish I was
a lady stenographer. Thank goodness
however, the horse racing does not devolve upon me, as Mr. A.J. McDonell
will be in charge of that department,
whilst Mr. R.M. Smythe is rendering
invaluable assistance as also are other members of the Revelstoke Pet
stouk and Poultry Association eo fnr
as their particular section of the Exhibition is concerned.
Certainly  the finances     are another
item which must bs closely  watched so
far as the monies collet > I ar.- concern. I. Tr.'asurer F.B.  Wells  will    see
I to ihem. and at the meeting on Tuesday,   Sept.  2nd,   in the  City  Hall,    at
p p.m., the collection committee, and
all other committees will  be struck oil
j tlii-; completing the organization,   and
'ensuring the smooth running of our
entire arrangements.
"As in previous years," Mr. Taylor
continued, "the big hcadliner ou the
amusement program will be a three
day racing card, with contesting horses from the principle stables of the
Northwest and Pacific slope. Many ot
the owners now competing at Minoura
Track Vancouver, huve already signified their intention to be represented
during this Revelstoke meeting. In
addition, a rock-drilling contest for
the championship of the interior,three
team baseball tourney, tield and track
sports, with the usual side shows, hul-
laboytf, booths and specialty features,
will udd their quota to the enjoyment
of the crowds.
The exhibition of horticultural and
agricultural products, field and farm
produce, poultry and pet stock, promises to easily eclipse all records, whilst
in the sections devoted to home cooking, manufactures and miscellaneous
classes, a record entry list is assured,
ln fact the i^ir is going to be  a hum-
i dinger, three Ml days of tast and furious frolic   are    absolutely guaranteed
