SHOULD GRANT
THE CHARTER
G. VV. Lillie was appointed chief of
the Nelson lire  department last night
at a salary of  SI 15  per  month.    Mr.
Lillie  has been in the city for a couple of months, during  which time; he
has made a   large   circle   of   friends.
As a lire fighter the new chief's qualifications   are    excellent.    He  was  a
member of the Vancouver  department
for a number of years and rose   to the
most responsible positions in the   brigade.    At the time Chief Carlyle   was
apppointed   to the  command  of   the
Vancouver brigade, it   was generally
understood   that   Mr. Lillie  had  the
preference lor the post   and   that  he
gave way to   Mr. Carlylo  for the reason that   tho   latter   was  a   married
man.    His   application   for  the   post
here was backed   by strong   letters of
recommendation and further strengthened by the  personal   testimony   of a
couple   of   aldermen who vouched for
his   personal   character.    No   further
action was taken lu the matter  of reorganizing   the   local brigade,   other
steps being   postponed until the  new
chief's report can be   secured for con
sideration.    Mr. Lillie assumes charge
of the Are hall tomorrow
The fire department question was
broached in the shape of a report of
the fire, water and light committee
accompanied by a communication from
the Mainland board of fire insurance
underwriters. The latter Bet forth
that a reduction of
SIXTEEN PER CENT IN PREMIUMS
would be granted if the counoil would
establish a paid fire brigade of eight
men improve the fire hall and apparatus, establish an auxiliary station on
the southern part of the town with a
chemical wagon, horses and two paid
men and, lastly, establish a modern
telegraph alarm system with a large
bell. The committee's report lecom-
raended the carrying out of these
provisions, raising the necessary
funds by a debenture issue The report included a clause to cover the
erection of a combined fire hall and
city oflice. A further clause provided
for the selection of a chief for the
brigade from among the applications
presented.
The council as a whole was opposed
to going into the heavy expenditure
of funds required to carry out the
oommittee's recommendations. Mayor Flotoher led tbe discussion by
pointing out that the programme involved an outlay of 81(1,000 at the lowest estimate. Of this 813,000 could be
charged to capital account but the
balance would be a fixed charge.
The excess in wages over the existing
arrangements would be 100 per cent.,
and in his opinion this was not jostled at the present time when" other
large expenditures, particularly the
item for placing the lighting system
In good shape would have to be gone
into. He simply could not see where
tho necessary
FUNDS WERE TO BE GOT.
An   efficient   fire   brigade   was   certainly most desirable and could be obtained, but not on the lines laid down
by the committee.
Alderman Hamilton argued, with
the support of tho mayor, that the
city should go ahead to make the
department as efficient as practicable
and then deal with the underwriters.
Alderman Irving emphasized the
fact that by securing the concession
mentioned in tho underwriters' letter,
a saving of 86,000 to 87,000 would be
effected   to business men.
It waB finally agreed to permit the
clause to remain over for future consideration.
Chief W. J. Thompson presented
his resignation, in which he thanked
tjio council for past favors and wished
the fire brigade every success in the
future. The resignation was accepted
on motion of Irving and Selous.
The question of appointing a new
chief was gone Into, applications being read from the  following:   J.  A.

Presentation to James Anderson ��� Notes of Greenwood Mines.
(SPECIAL TO THE MIXER.)
Greenwood,   Feb.   23.��� On    Friday
night, 32nd inst., a presentation   was
made to Mr. Jas.   Anderson, who for
some time past has been   manager of
the Greenwood branch   of the Bank of
British North   America, and   who the
next day   left   for   Rossland  to  take
charge of the  bank's branch   in  that
town.   The   presentation   took place
at   the  Imperial    hotel,   Greenwood,
where Mr. Anderson was  entertained
by a number of   personal friends and
the gathering  was of a  very   cordial
though     informal     nature.     It   was
presided over   by   Mr. Duncan   Ross,
editor of the Greenwood  Times, who
during the evening   called   upon   Mr.
Frederic Kepper, E. M., general manager of the British   Columbia Copper
Co., to present the guest  with a gold
watch  chain   and   locket.    This  Mr,
Kepper did,accompanying the present'
ation witb some remarks expressive of
the high esteem in which  Mr. Anderson was hsld, both in his official and
private capacities. Other gentlemen also   testified   to   the   worth   of  their
guest, both as an useful citizen and  a
good friend.    Mr.    Anderson   suitably
responded, acknowledging much kindness shown him in Greenwood, which
he was leaving with  regret.    After a
couple of hours  had been  spent  very
soolably   Mr.   Anderson, who left  on
Saturday's  train   for  Rossland,   was
bidden "God Speed" and the company
sang   "Auld  Lang  Syne"   and  then
dispersed.    During    the   evening    a
hearty   welcome    was    extended    to
Mr. W. J. H.   Belt,   Mr.   Anderson's
successor.   Tbe  locket  given   to Mr.
Anderson bore the   following inscription, on one side   "James 'Anderson,
A   token of   friendship.   Greenwood,

"Better lo'ed   ye  canna be.   .Will ye

of the   British
,. Ltd., owning
The special meeting of the board of
trade last night precipitated an
interesting discussion on the question
of the coal and coke supply of East
Kootenay and tho advisability of
granting Mr. James J. Hill a charter
for a railroad from the international
boundary to Fernie. Contrary to the
expectation of many, the board decided to instiuct its delegates to the
meeting of the Associated Boards of
Trade at Greenwood on the 28th instant to vote in favor of granting
such a charter, provided that the coal
and coke supply for B. C. industries,
present and future, and for His Majesty's navy were assured of priority.
The motion was not passed unanimously, but the ayes so preponderated
that no count was taken.
The president, G. V. Holt, opened
the proceedings by stating the object
of the special meeting, and drawing
attention to the importance of the
matter to be discussed. It was eminently a question to which there were
two sides, and he was sure the board
would give the discussion
AN IMPARTIAL HEARING.
The president further stated that, owing to a mistake in address, no representative of the Crow's Nest Coal
company was present, but that II.
Bentley, president of the Fernie Board
of Trade was at the meeting, and also
G. G. Henderson, editor of the Fernie Free Press. They might je considered as spokesmen for the coal
company, and he hoped the meeting
would accord them a hearing. The
permission was unanimously accorded, and Mr. Bentley rose.
He said that it was a matter of
common knowledge tbat the C. P. R.
opposed the granting of this charter
to Mr. Hill and his associates, because
it would interfere with their present
exorbitant freight charges. Since
May 14, 1900,* freight: rates on.the C.
P. R. from intermediate points,whence
all their supplies came, had been Increased 50 per cent. The country was
under no obligation to the C. P. R.
wbo had built their road by help of a
BIG GOVERNMENT GRANT,
a road which had paid since they had
started to operate it. The cry had
been raised that if the proposed road
were built, the coal and coke would
go south, and there would not be
enough left for B. C. This.was absurd. The government still had in
reserve 50,00 acres of coal lands, or
a total amount of ooal in sight of 7,-
00,000,000 tons. The spenker asserted
that the coal company was not getting
a higher price for its coal In the I'. S.
than it waB here, and that all orders
for coke from the local smelters had
Deen filled. When tlie Great Northern wanted a contract of 40 cars a
day they were told that it was dependent on there being a sufficient surplus
over B. C. trade.
The coul company wished to increase tbeir plant to tho extent of
SEVEN HUNDRED COKN OVI3NS
but as eaoh oven cost from 8700 to
$800 with the traok laid down, they
naturally desired a guaranteed market. This would Increase the output
2,500 tons of coke per day, which
would be sufficient for all demands.
The coal company had paid the C. P.
R. in one year 8300,000 for freight.
The coal cost 82 at the pit's mouth
and 80 or 87 in Nelson. Who got tlie
difference? The Speaker sold the C. P..
R. got 82.50 of it and figured that the
royalty to the province on the coal in
sight at the rate of 10 cents a ton,
would eventually amount to 82,000,-
500,000. He could see no objection to
the surplus coal being taken to the
United States, especially as it would
mean 810,000 per day extra spent In
wages in II. C.

lie thought it would only be right to
ask the government to insert a clause
in the new charter governing the foreign shipments and insuring that British Columbia was supplied first.
Regarding the assertion that the B.
C. smelters had not been fully supplied with coke, the speaker submitted the following statement, supplied
by the local manager of the Crow'B

HALL   MINES   MAY   CLOSE.
The smelters and power houses
are not the only;   Institutions in
the Kootenay and Boundary districts   which   are  today suffering from a shortage of coal. The
operation of mines is affected by
the action  of  the  Crow's  Nest
Coal   people   in  supplying   the
Great   Northern   with  coal and
allowing its   Kootenay  patrons
to suffer.   Nelson is likely to be
hit   very   hard   by  the   closing
down of the Silver   King:  mine,
an event  likely  to occur at any
moment.   This information was
gleaned this morning from Capt.
John R. Gilford, mannger of tbe
Silver King mine.
"We have only coal enough on
hand," said tbe captain,"to last
us 24 hours. We contracted with
the Crow's Nest company for a
supply of four cars a week. They
are barely able to let us bave
two cars a W3ek. We cannot
get along with this and must,
therefore, I fear, close down tbe
mine and keep it closed until
we are assured of a steady and
sufficient supply. From what
I can learn the fault lies with
the coal company and not with
theC. P. R."

The Pyritic smelter of Greenwood

and, during the lirst three weeks of
tho month, had received 593 tons of
coke.
The Hall mines smelter had a large
surplus on hand last fall and from
Nov. 22-30 received 118 tons of coke,
during December 272 tons,during Jan-
nary 458 Ions.
Tlie speaker went on to Bay that

fault as tbey declined to make a contract, ordering their coke from day
to day, a system whioh was bound to
entail delays. The coal company wtts
willing to make contracts, If necessary, with tho B. C. smelters for five
years ahead to ensure a steady supply
of coke. At present the coke output
of the mines exceeded the local demand by 130 tons daily, which waa
being shipped to the Statos, via Lethbrldge, and a narrow guage line at a
loss of 30 cents per ton. Mr. Bentley
then sat down amid applause.

Strike on Ocean Wave -Onondaga Properties���Mining Notes.
William Shacklcton and C. G. Simpson of this city   have gone into a proposition which promises to add a new
and   important industry to the Salmo
district.    They have   acquired   an interest in the Snowdrop   mineral claim
on Sheep creek about seven miles from
Salmo and have already taken steps lo
open the property as a marble   quarry
and lime kiln.    Work waa started  ou
Sunday   in   the   direction of   placing
hoisting and other machinery   on   the
ground and the   Porto   Rico   Lumber
company has laid down a   quantity of
lumber at the Snowdrop for   bnilding
purposes.    The owners of the property j
who still  retain  an   interest   in   the
proposition,   are   William   McArthur
and     E.   Broadfoot   ot   Salmo.    The
marble   found  on   the   Snowdrop   is
claimed   to be   of  exceptionally   fine
quality.   Tbe stone has a  fine   white
color   marked   with   blue   veins  and
takes a beautiful  finish.   It  contains
64 per cent of lime,' and  this makes it
one of the best deposits for lime burning purposes in the Kootenays.    Samples of   the rock will be submitted to
the department of public  works   with
a view  to having it  adopted  for  the
post office building.

The Onondaga Mining company Is In
itself ati extensive consumer and with
its success assured other properties
are certain to commence work. All
supplies for the camp must now be
purchased in Rossland, there being no
trail or road facilities between Nelson
and Champion ereek with the jxoep-
tion of the section to Whitewater.
An extension of this trail for four or
five miles would divert the trade of a
growing camp to Nelson, and is certainly worth looking into.

Harry F. McLeod, district registrar
of the Kootenay land registration
district, arrived homo from Victoria
on Sunday evening and is now engaged in completing arrangements for
the furnishing of the registry office.
The carpenters will be thiough with
their part of the work today, and it
is expected that everything will be
shipshape by Saturday, the date fixed
for the opening of the building and
office.
Mr. McLeod has spent the last six
weeks in the oflice of the registrar-
general at Victoria mastering the
details of the office. Nine clerks were
employed at the capital and about
one-half the business transacted there
originated from the Kootenays. It is
probable, therefore, that the staff
as originally intended, the registrar
and a clerk, will not be sufficient to
haudle the work. An assistant from
the registrar-general's office haB been
deputed to come to Nelson for a
mouth or so. Tho blanks, plans and
documents to be kept here are now
on the way from the coast, in seven
pack in**- cases, aggregating a couple
of tons in weight. The system of
land registration in the province
is modelled after several of the best
known systems and contains most of
their strong points, with a maximum
of simplicity in detail. The office
registeis all transfers of land,
mortgages, orders in court affecting
land, etc. In addition, provision is
made for depositing crown grants,
title deeds and other valuable docu
incuts relating to land. Tbe office
building is guaranteed fireproof as a
safe guard to persons depositing such
papers.
Thu    amount     of     work     passing
through the registrar's hands can   be
estimated   when It is  stated   that an
average of 100 transactions are record
ed monthly.

Ottawa, Feb. 25.���A number of bills
were introduced in the house today.
A large number of questions waB answered by the ministers and a discussion followed on a resolution of Dr.
Sproule to put a bounty on beet sugar produced in Canada. This is a
subject which has been debated annually in parliament.
Clancy introduced a bill to amend
the Dominion elections act. He said
that its purpose was to prevent a new
form of intimidation practiced before and during an election. The new
practice is that of driving working
men to vote for a certain candidate by
telling him that the Dominion ballot
is not a secret oue. It is proposed
to punish by fines' and imprisonment
a declaration that the Dominion ballot is not secret.
Richardson, (Lisgar), introduced a
bill to amend the Dominion election
act. Its aim is to prevent "saw-oifs"
in connection with election protests.
Richardson also introduced a bill
respecting the land grant of the C. P,
It., when the C. P. R. bill was passed
in 1881, the company was given, in
addition to a cash subsidy a grant of
23,000,000 acres of land. This land
I was to be exempt from taxation for
20 years. Richardson contends that
the exemption was intended to date
from the time of the grant in 1881,
and not from that of the issue of patents. The bill declares that the exemption clause shall be interpreted as
expiring on the 15th of the present
month.
The speaker announced that he had
received the report of tho trial judges
voiding the election In North Uruce,
and that he had issued his warrant
for the assurance of the trial and for
a new election.
The premier, replying to Hruco
(Hamilton), stated that the government did not intend to introduce legislation this session making May 24 a
holiday.
In reply to Col. Prior, Sir Richard
Cartwrlght said that 4,212 Chinese
landed in liritish Columbia nnd paid
tho poll tax in 11100; 2(1 wero entered
as exempt, and 1,501 entered in
transit inwards, making a total of .">,-
8<*u entering the province. The total
number regiutned for leaving outwards was 8'Hi, and 2,220 registered
"transit outwards," making a total
of 3,110. Large numbers leave tlio
province going east, of which there is
no record. The total poll tax collected during the year was 1810,800.
There were 5,461 reported ns landed
In transit to other thnn Canadian
ports. The minister said that the figures were not reliable, as regards

The supreme court of Manitoba has
declared the prohibition act null and

to down King Alcohol by legislative

The Miner has no desire to cast any
reflection upon the management of the
provincial jail, but it respectfully
submits that fewer escapes of prisoners from that institution would be
calculated to engender greater confidence   in the minds of the people.
AN ALARMING SITUATION.
In another column
lishes a report of a
with Capt. (iifford,
Silver King mine, in
Tlie Miner pub-
brief Interview
manager of tbe
which that gen
tleman makes the announcement that
there is a likelihood of tthc property
being required to shut down owing to
a shortage of coal. This is an alarming situation. From what Capt. Gilford says it is quite clear that the non ���
delivery of the coal which his company contracted for is the fault of the
Crow's Nest Coal company. About how
long do the mine owners of this province propose to tolerate such a condi-
tionof affairs'.' One day we are told by
no less an authority than the manager of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company that there is no lack of coal supply for British Columbia nor ever
was; next day the announcement is
made that some of the largest mines
are on the eve of closing down owing
to a shortage of coal. There is plainly
something wrong somewhere. It
would be preposterous to suggest that
the mine managers are misrepresenting matters or trilling with the situation. What, then, is the inference?
Either that the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company is unable to supply tbe British Columbia demand or transportation facilities are inadequate.^ The
railway company disclaims any responsibility for the shortage, and
points out that it has suffered from
an inadequate supply of coal itself.
It is plain, then, tbat the coal company is unable to meet the demand in
British Columbia; and that being
the case, is it not the height of absurdity for the contention to be put
forward that it lias ample facilities
for meeting all requirements? The
threatened closing down of the Silver
King is not a mere trifle, not an incident whicli may be regarded ligfitly.
It is the best known mine in the Nelson district and any interference with
' its operation for any such reason as
we have mentioned could not fail to
have an injurious effect upon the reputation of the province.
The Miner hopes that there will be
a very largo attendance at the entertainment in aid of the library to be
held at the opera bouse on Thursday
evening. Aside from the fact that an
enjoyable evening is promised, all
who can do so should contribute to so
worthy an object.
Manitoba is in tbe throes of a
mighty railway controversy. Opposition to the contract which Premier
Roblin entered into a short time ago
on behalf of the government with the
Northern Pacific and the Canadian
Northern railways seems to be growing and all kinds of trouble Is apparently looming up on the horizon.
One effect of the great South African
war has been to open the eyes of the
British war office to the fact that
Canadians make the finest soldiers in
the world, so the announcement that
a scheme is on foot for the establishment in Canada of permanent recruiting depots for the British army does
not come in the nature of a   surpiise.

There are many considerations to
weigh in the choice of a refiDery site
and right here there should be some
missionary work done by the membeis
of the Nelson city council and board
of trade. Should liritish Columbia be
selected aB the site for the refinery, no
point iu the province can offer better
natural advantages than can Nelson,
and these advantages should be laid
before the prime movers in the refining project, when it could be ascertained, if these inducements failed,
,what supplementary assistance would
be necessary to secure the refinery for
Nelson.���Nelson Tribune.

Vancouver Is at last to have a thoroughly equipped assay office. This
has io.ig been needed. Tbe lack of it
at one of the Canadian coast cities
has had the effect of diverting thou

gold dust exchanged for coin.
REFINERY FOR NELSON.
The Tribune lias put forward tbe
suggestion that an agitation should
be commenced looking to the securing
of the proposed refinery for Nelson
The Miner hastens to "second the
motion," and hopes that the board of
trad?, the eity council and other in
iluential bodies will take the matter
up and lay Nelson's claims as the spot
whicli should be chosen ns a site for
the reduction works before those who
arc interesting themselves In the
scheme. That no more suitable place
tuan Nelson for the location of the re
finery could be chosen will be admitt
ed by everyone.���tt being central to
the district from which all the lead
ores would come and possessing every
advantage in the way of udequate
transportation facilities. In view of
the fact, that there Is reason to be
lleve the federal government are in a
mood to give favorable consideration
to a proposal to aid such an enter
prise, it would seem to be an act of
wisdom for Nelson to be up and doing
in the matter of directing attention
to Its claims for recognition when a
Bite may be chosen.
A matter which will be much appreciated by the people of Kootenay
Is the opening of the land registry
office at Nelson, which takes place on
Saturday next. Mr. McLeod, the (lis
trlct registrar, makes the interesting
statement that about one-half of the
business transacted at the head olllce
at Victoria originates in the Koote-
nays. From what the Miner has
learned of Mr. McLeod it seems quite
certain that he will prove an obliging
and capable official.
It is satisfactory to learn from Mr.
Dick, government Inspector of coal
and metalliferous mines, thnt his
tour of Inspection of the mines In
Kootenay and Boundary has resulted
in his finding all the regulations for
tbe safety of the mine laborers being
complied with. The recent terrible
disaster at Comox has directed attention on^e again to the necessity of extreme watchfulness being exercised in
all mining operations,

That Nelson ia now recognized as

again by the announcement,that hereafter all trains for the Boundary, Slocan, Rossland and the Balfour extension will be dispatched from Nelson.

They used August Flower to clean out
the system nnd stop fermentation of
undigested food, rcgulntc the action
of the system, and that Is nil they
took when feeling dull and bad with

A110UT THE MINER���
During tlie past few weeks upwards
of a couple of hundred new subscribers have been addd to the list of The
Miner's patrons, and its out-of-town
circulation is rapidly Increasing.
CHANCED THE NAME���
It is Btated on good authority that
the C P, R. has changed the name of
Moyelle to Aldricli. It seems that
the reason for the change is that in
some instances Moyie and Moyelle
were conflicting.
DISCOUNTS ON LltiHT���
The city lighting plant having been
short of power for some time, the service in the residential portion of the
city has been run on short time. In
view of this a number of applications
for rebates on the usual charges]) are
expected, and the matter of adjusting
these rebates has been left to Mayor
Fletcher.

REMANDED AGAIN���
James lloileau was brought up at
yesterday's police court for trial on
tho charge of theft. He requested
time to secure the services of a solicitor and Judge Crease granted the request, remanding the case till this
morning.
POLICE IN  UNIFORMS���
Tbe city policemen are to be provided with uniforms at the corpoiation's
expense. It has been decided to furnish each man with an outfit estimated to cost 830. If it is found that uniforms are undesirable no further
clothing will be supplied.
MORE C. P. R  CHANGES���
Newspaper and otber gossip has it
that Mr. Oborne, tralllc superintendent of the western division with headquarters at Winnipeg, will be transferred to the head oflice at Montreal,
that Mr. Marpole will take Mr.
Obornc's place at Winnipeg, that Mr.
Duschesnay will be promoted to the
position held by R. Marpole as general
superintendent of the Pacific division.

INCREASED THE GRANT���
The city council has decided to increase the grant toward relieving distress among the widows and orphans
of tlie victims of the Union mine disaster. An additional sum of 8150 has
been granted making Nelson's civic
contribution to tlie relief fund 8250.
When the point came up in council,
Alderman Selous objected on a point

03rs.

could not. We could not get the coke
we wanted or even what we had paid
for. But for our reserve we would
have bad great trouble. If we can get
a guarantee that tbe necessary coke
will be supplied, the matter will be
practically settled, but I was in Ross
land last week and saw the biggest
mine there burning wood, and the
manager told me the reason was that
though they had a contraot for two
cars of coal daily, tbey could only get
one.
Mr. Bentley���The smelters should
find out what quantity of coke they
will collectively want, and order accordingly. I am not prepared to discuss the coal supply question but will
have the information in time for the
Greenwood meeting. Tbe present machinery at the mines iB not adequate
though more has been ordered. The
tracks to many of the cone ovens were
not laid by tbe railway company last
fall, and even now they are not ballasted. Nothing was heard of inability to fill contracts until this charter
was applied for. By their charter the
coal company is required to first meet
the requirements of B. 0,, both now
and in the future.
J. J. Campbell���Ia that agreement
in existence now?
H. Bentley���Yes. It is included in
the agreements both with the government and the C.  P. R.
G. G. Henderson���The recent coal
shortage was due to
A SERIOUS BREAKDOWN
of the power engines for two or three
weeks, and the repairs had to be
done in the east. The company had
tried, unsuccessfully, to harry the
Pittsburg people.
H. E. McDonnell���During the last
six months 1,054 cars went to the
States, via Lethbrldge, and meanwhile the Trail smelter had to shut
down twice for laek of coke.
H. Bentley���As I said before the
Trail smelter would not make a contract, and if they had to close down
it served them right for acting in such
an unbusinesslike way. With a can-
tract an ample supply of coke wonld
be forthcoming bar unavoidable accidents.
H. E. McDonnell���If the royal
navy required an extra supply of coal
���what then?
G. G. Henderson���According to Dr.
Dawson's report the 50,000 acres of
coul lands still In the possess on of tbe
government contain sufficient coal to
supply the entire continent for 250
years. The coal company has 200,-
000 acres uf coal lands; and the speaker gave figures as to the extent of the
coal deposits. When the Trail smelter closed down last year it was asked
to lay in a supply of coke, but refused, and even asked that the coke
In transit
SHOULD BE TRANSHIPPED.
II. E. Croasdalle���I see no valid reason against granting the charter, but
safeguards are needed. All depends
on the powers granted under the char
ter. It is question of the retention of
sufficient ooal and coke for our needs,
and, if required, for the royal navy.
Mr. Hill might, at some juncture,
deem it his policy to gut the mines,
hence the need of safeguards. There
is not only one coal mine but many,
and the supply of coal seems practically unlimited, therefore, If we cut
off the southern market, we are injuring what may become the biggest
industry in Southern British Columbia.
Mr, CroaBdaile, seconded by S. S,
Fowler, then moved the following mo
tion, which waa passed as stated
above:
Resolved ; That tho delegates from
the board to tho Associated Hoards
of Trade meeting at Greenwood on
the '.'Hth Instant, be instructed to favor the granting of a charter from
Fernle to tho United .States boundary,
provided, that provisions be inserted
in the charter applied for guaranteeing efficient aafeguarda securing an
ample supply of coke and coal for all
smelting, mining and other industries
now or hereafter to be established iu
the province of liritish Columbia,
and, If required, also for tho use of
His Majesty's nnvy.
NEW MAIL ROUTE.
A resolution, proposed by G. C.
TuiiHlall and seconded by J. Banner-
man, was then passed unanimously,
asking that the mail from the south
be sent by the Nelsoii-Hedllngton road
instead of the S. F. & N. and also
that a sub-inspector of mails bo appointed for southern Kootenay. A
copy of the resolution will be sent to
