Before the Vanoouvat Chamber   of
Mines Nicol Thompson one of tho
eminent mining engineers of the province, drew attention in the, course
of a paper, to the enormous possibilities which British Columbia possesses in the development of the iron
and steel industry.
There are great quantities of mag-
nitlte ore here, from which thc highest quality of iron and steel can be
manufactured, according to Mr.
Ihompson. In the hematite ores,
which arc now used the most extensively in the manufacture of pig iron,
then- is not such a large iiupply.
Engineers present were eager to
gain knowledge as to the wiccess of
the electrical metallurgical furnace
for the treatment of magnetite ores
in various parts of the world, said
Ihe lecturer, With the success of the
electrical furnace, British Columbia,
with her abundant water power,
could .lope tho see established great
I last furnaces and rolling mills.
One of the greatest needs in thc establishment of the iron and steel Industry here was a cheap fuel, said Mr.
Sharp, who was for ninny years connected with mining intercuts on Vancouver island. He thought that in the
Cumberland district there was a qual-
ily of coal suitable for ranking coke
for blast furnaces which was not
surpassed in any part of thc world.
K. A. Hagen stated that some of
the members of the Vancouver board
of trade stood ready to invest capital In the iron and steel industry.
Nicol Thompson said there was a
I roposition on foot to establish an
Iron and steel industry in Uritish Columbia and the State of Washington.
It wns proposed to have 85,000,000 in
capital and to establish a pig iron
I hint somewhere in British Columbia
and  the rolling mill  in  Washington.
"But the greatest difficulty in the
istalilishinent of such an industry has
leen the apathy of the people," Baid
Mr. Thompson.

The following is tbe box score of
last Wednesdav's game at Vernon:
The first inning started with
snappy play, and Revelstoke would
have scored, had not Parent, in a run
from second to home, run wide of
third base. Parent opened the frame
with a hit, made first, then reached
second base on a sacrifice by Fisher.
OldfieldX fl>* to center field was
caught by Knapp. and Pulley was out
on a fly to Williams, who fielded a
pretty pame against the sun, and
made several fine throws to the infield.
The score of Wednesday's game
follows, in detail:
How Gihbie caught thc ball  right on
the barb wire fence;
The way he had to run, wasn't al  ill
slow to grab it,
He  ran  right    across    thc  field  just
like a jack rabbit.
lhe way thnt RevcUtoke     won, wns
really just line,
Ihey handed     Vernon     some of tho
Revelstoke medicine;
The medicine     was    very strong,   it
will help them on their way,
"We hope    to    see you    Vernon come
back another day.
the     baseball club Is very wise    to

Now you will have to pay to go near

Vou will not be required to leave your present surroundings now. All
we ask of those to whom we grant tracts is that they plant, or arrange to
have planted, a crop of oneVif the above-mentioned product* within three
years, after which we will hare it operated (harteated and replanted) for
grantees, jn consideration of 26 per cent, of the net profits derived from
the sale of tbe crops, thereby allowing the grantee to pursue his or her
present occupation until such time as they determine just what tbe yield

full bearing should net its owner as high as sjOO.OO per year. We
are of the opinion that after it is proven by actual results obtained in
operating the land that they will need no further urging, and waste
time in locating iu this land of plenty. We also require grantees to occupy
the land within ten years, or sell I; Lo someone who will occupy it; otherwise it reverts back to the grantor.
The land Included in thin opening is located directly on and adjoining
the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railroad, about 28 mites west of
Hrunswick, a thriving city of fifteen thousand, and having direct steamship service to Sew York and Boston, and excellent railroad transportation facilities to all points. Tne average temperature for six months of
tlie year, from April to October, is 77 degrees; the climate is most healthful, and Invigorating, and there is an ample rainfall of JU inches per year.
As we are extremely desirous of having settlers locate on tbis property aud assist in its development, ami thereby greatly increase tbe
value of surrounding and intervening property, which we will hold, and to
increase the trail ic along the Atlanta. Birmingham and Atlantic Uailroad,
andthUa facilitate the service, we feel wanauted in granting these tracts
to those who register witli us. We also have in mind business nnd residence plots which we will otFer for sale after thc openiug, but which will
not be included in it- We have "money-making afterward" considerations in this liberal-minded opening, sinilar to those nf the North-
theru Pacific and other railroads when they granted their lauds, and we
expect lo benefit thereby, a. well as the ones wh" will receive the tracts
We have also planned to develop what is designed to be the bent
equipped, most up-to-date, scientific,coniinercial farm and orchard in existence. It will Consist of six thousand acres . n < will if included in thu
opening. All who register and receive tracts will get thebeueritof the
experiments aud scientific methods in vogue thereon. While we are ar
ranging to prevent over-registration, we will avoid m.»ny disappointment*,

With the ever-increasing population of this country there
is no corresponding increase in the area of land, and naturally as the population increases and seeks thc land in pursuit of health, happinuss and independence, it will continue
to bc harder to secure.
The prosperous and contented class in Kurupe today are the descend ■
ants of those who secured land there when it mu plentiful, while the de'
BCendantfl oi those who obtained no Und are now the peasants and

Jas. McDonald, charged with taking
some *-i30 from A Nukas a section
man at Three Valley appeared on remand before Police Magistrate Hamilton on Thursday, was found guilty
and on Friday was sentenced to six
months in Kamloops jail. C. E. Gillan  appeared  for  accused.
Nukas swore that McDonald with
another man hustled him into the
corner of a bar in Which they were
drinking and that McDonald took
his money and bunded it to another
man. Ole Anderson nnd E. Peterson
gave evidence that they saw tho
stutlte in the hnr and saw Nukas
thrown  out  of thc door.
McDonald denied the theft and thi>
scu'tlc in the bar. He said that
Nukas complained of losing money
that he merely took hold of him and
I i shed him up to the bar where he
"at'lit ''in a drink. Afterwardu
Nukas went out and curr.e back witb

said that the fact that another man
got thc money did not relive tho
prisoner of guilt but that thc sentence would have been more severe if
the money bnd been found on him.

guests who are visiting here were
also present, Miss Christie from Vancouver; also Miss Kay and Miss
Grant of Winnipeg. After several
games of auction bridge, in which the
pretty prizes fell to Mrs. Lawson uud
Miss Grant, a very dainty supper was

Empire day nor made possible the
usual Bchedule of enjoyable picnics,
and general out of doors festivities.
Dancing began promptly at 9 o'clock
to the Inspiriting strains of Orr's

OCCUSion almost all entire program of
lovely new music. Fully 60 Cinderel-

princes      attended.       Supper,     served
about 11:30 consisted of a bountiful
spread of home cooking provided by
the members of the auxiliary. After
this interlude dancing was resumed
for another hour or more. Much credit Is due the ladies for the success
achieved, and especially to a committee of Mrs. McLean and Mrs. Mc-

the detail work. The financial returns were very satisfactory, tt is
