yesterday that his company has per*
fected arrangements for making ;i
shipment of oie from the Old Gold.
This shipment, for tbe reason that tne
trail up the little. West Fork is nit j
yet completed, will have to be taken
out over the divide aud down the
Trout Lake wagon road to Thompson's Landing. The packers are already at work but it has not yet been
decided what size the shipment will
take. Mr. Miller says it is likely
that the government will turn over
tho work of completing the trail up
the West Fork to his company, in
which case the completion of the
trail in a couple or three weeks is
assured.���Trout Lake Topic.

Pittsburg, Pa., Aug 30,���Officials of
the mills of the   United   States   Steel
Corporation that were  closed   by   the
strike of the   Amalgamated   Association, stated today that   they   are   receiving many applications from former   employees   for   work.       The   announcement that   the company   would
start their mills non-union,   has,   the
officials believe, caused   a   weakening
in the ranks of the strikers and many
are seeking cover.     The amalgamated
officials,   however,   claim   that   their
ranks are unbioken and that  they are
as strong as ever.     One   of   the   steel
officials said todny thut   there   was  a

I., M, M��� of Nelson.
Coal is the basis of all industries
and commerce of one of the most im-
poitant itoms in the future prosperity
of a country. In coal, as anthracite,
bituminous for cooking and steam,
and lignite of good quality t'or domestic purpose, liritisli Columbia is immensely endowed, and will take
second place to no part of the world,
aiea for area, in this respect. This
is n<> exaggeration, as the following
facts will prove, and so liritisli Columbia will stand as a future commercial province of the utmost importance
to tbe Hritish Empire on the l'acilic,
and will surpass the Western States of
Ameiina, since they have to draw on
the wealth of British Columbia for
their fuel.

possibilities for the  existence of  coal
predicted tiy tbo   geologist  are   daily
being practically proven  by tho   prospectors who bring in samples.      From
what we already know let us ondeavor
to ascertain the   reason and   sequence
of the occurrence of the coal basins.     |
In   discussing British  Columbia we
havo   to   hark   back   to   our  pioneer
geologist,    Dr.   G.   M.    Dawson.    He
mapped out   British Columbia as consisting of Tour   ranges   of  mountains
with north and south   trend.    Taking
the Structure of those  ranges and having pioved that our  eoal exists in the
cretaceous divisions of  the Mosozoic
series, then we  expect our coal basins
to   run   north   and   south   like     the
ranges, since the coal-boaring   formations aie   aiming tho   later   ones, and
act as the top layer where not denuded
away   or   thrust   aside   by   intrusive
ro-ks.   When wc say   the   top   luyer,
wo mean in sequence as by tbe upheaval of  the   mountains,   and   slanting
position'though seemingly a paradox,
this top layer muy ho   in   tho   valleys
between the    ranges, as the   intrusive
ro"kb liavii done their work.
Beginning at the oust of British
Columbia, what do we llnd ou each
side of th.* Rooky Mountains? In
the Northwest territories there is an
almost unbroKcn continuous coal tiold
from Lethbridge, near tbe international boundary line north, past
Pincher     Creek,    High    Rivor,  Sheep
Creek, Anthracite, uontnore, and so
on to the north around the Peace
River valley. On the west side of
these Rocky Mountains in Ilritlnh
Columbia we begin with tlie Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields.
Heie is the account written of them
by members of the Gcogologicnl Survey of Canada, and by those actively
engaged in their development, Thu
I area of woikable coal Is 280 square
miles of a thickness of ion feet of
good seams, representing 153,480 long
tons to tbe acre, or a total, calculated
after years of onreful plotting and
mensi lHincnts, of   88,698,000,000  long
Vaseau) Lake,   at Okanagan Falls, up
the north fork of the Keltic river, and
into   the Fire valley   and   Okanagan
districts around Whauchope.   ln these
discoveries   wo   have the  rims of the
coal basins cropping   out, and   boring
is now going on to locate   the   deeper
parts   of   the  basins.     To the north,
through the Monasbee and Eagle 1'ass
districts, the country   is  unkown and
unexplored, and   this applies  further
north.     Similar   indications    appear
again to tho   west, commencing  near
the southern   boundary, at Princeton,
in the   Similkameen   valley,   further
north   on the   Tnlameen   river,   near
Otter   Flat,   at    Gulliford'.    Ranch,
Coultree, Nicoas, Stump Lakes, North
Thompson river, Hat creek,   near   the
Marble canon,   and to the unexplored
north.Here is a long slretcb of basins.
To the west   again, at Somas, beyond
the Hope mountains,   tbe broken   rim
of   a   basin   is   again shown, this  is
picked   up   at   long   mtrevals on   the
Squamish,     anil   eleswhero,    till   we
come   to   another   piece do resistance
in the llazolton district,   around   Ba-
bino and Stewart Lakes.     Here again
explorations   arc   going  on, and surveys for railways are being completed
to open up a second   Kootenay  in   all
its wealth   of   coal, copper,  lead, silver, and gold.     Dr   Dawson predicted
this in the 80's.    Tlie coal basins here
are said    to   equal    the   Crow's   Nest
basin in quantity and quality.
Hack to the west again, beginning
on Vancouver Island and following up
north, looking on the islands along
the coast as the highest peaks of a
submerged range. JNnnaitnu lias been
supplying California, the Hawaiian
Islands, and other foreign parts for 50
years, tho output for last year being
1,888,870 tons. Coal beds aie known
at intervals to Quateinc Inlet on the
north. On other islands there is eoal,
and up to the ljueen Charlotte gioup
on Graham and Moresby.
This long list of known occurrences,
and those not   mentioned,    will   cou-
vinco anyone of the wealth of  Kiitish
Columbia   as   to   quantity    of   eoal.
Now let ns  hear   about   its  quality.
Dr. Percy, 40 years ago,   in his works
gave tho analysis of   Nanaimo   coast,
and   compared   them   favorably   with
other bituminous   coals  from   Wales,
Aust'-nlia and the States in lowness of
bbIi,   steam   production   and     coking
qualities.    Since then the Ciow's Nost
coal has come into commercial impoit-
ance to supply Canadian   and   American smelters.     This surpasses Nunai-
uio in quality,equaling any coke from
Waies,    Pennsylvania,   or   Australia.
Tho Hritish and American admiralties
have practically proven by hard   tests
Its Steam'producing powers, and have
agreed to substitute Crow's Nest   coul
for   Welsh   eoal   on   completion of   a
railway along   the   Columbia   to Golden to transmit it. to tho coast.
These coal lieids of British Columbia
are not only of looal Importance to
smelt tbe iron, copper und lend minerals in abundance here, but are of
Imperial and continental Importance.
First Imperial, since Hritish Columbia
is the only Hritisl; possession on   this
{hide   of  the   Pad flu   from   which   to
outfit aud repair   tlie   I.net   to   watch
the    western    mouth   of   the   future
Isthmian canal, and from its proximity   to   Siberia,    Korea,    Japan   and
China is   an   alternate baso to   Hong
Kong.       Second,    continental.      Tho
commercial race for the trade   of Asia
between the Britisli and Americans is
from hero.    All    ships   to   make   the
noi them   and   lesser   curve    of    the
earth's surfuoe have to   come near the
Aeutlian     Islands.       Those     He   olf
Alaska, an   isolated   territory, and so
make Hritish Coliuuliia ports, whether
Quatsiun or Simpson, of immense importance to transcontinental railways
to   shorten   tbe   route fur passengers,
mail, silk and ten.    All matters go to
prove thoroughly that Hritish Columbia from hoi coal has a   future second
to no part of the Empire.

The Miner's Vancouver correspondent says the Stave Lake power
scheme has been taken over by the
same syndicate that installed the
power plant at Snoqualmie Falls.
This syndicate has interests in Seattle
worth 87,000,000, and its financial
abiity to carry out the Stave Lake
proposition is unquestioned. When
the power plant is installed it will be
the means of furnishing Vancouver
and its vicinity with cheap power and
lights. The power fuinished from a
plant of this sort in a city like Vancouver is a boon to new factories as
it enables them to operate small machine plants,whereas if they had to int
stall steam plants the expense would
be too great. The cheaper motive
power, however, enables them to get
a start and in time these small manufacturing concerns grow to large
proportions. Usually, too, the power
companies furnish lights for considerably lesa than illumination with oil
would cost and are a great benefit to
communities whioh they reach. Vancouver is to be congratulated that
capital has at last taken hold of the
power poposition, which has been
talked of so much by the press of the
metropolis frr the past couple of
Electric plants are multiplying on
all sides. The Kettle River Power
Company is putting in a plant near
Grand Forks will furnish which 6,000
horse power. The West Kootenay
I'ower & Light Company is doubling
the capacity of its works at Bonnington Falls.
Nor is this activity confined to this
portions of Canada. Among the large
enterprises of this kind Is the dam of
the Kuowatin Powor Company at the
outlet of the Lake of the Woods, 120
lmlos from Winnipeg. The dam
made of granite and cement and holds
a large expanse of water. It gives
30.000 horse power, and it ia purposed
to utilize the power in lighting
The distances over which electric
energy can be sent is increasing with
the knowledge which is being acquired
of the proper wiro conductors and a
plant is being constructed in California to deliver electric power In San
Francisco from a waterfall 150 miles
distant. It is claimed that a copper
cable ono inch in diameter will transmit 50,000 horse power over almost
any distance with a loss of only one-
ilfth of ono per cent, per mile.
Tho Mining World speaking of the
mo of oloctrical Dower and machinery
in mining says:
"Ono of tho few things which is
revolutionizing the mining business is
the use of electrical machinery. Ono
of the most notable examples of thc
transformation of a mining property
from a noii-wuruabli- proposition is
tho Comstock lode in Nevada. This
lodo was as is well known worked to
an immense depth until tbe cost of
mining became enormous. The water
flow was so immense that tho biggest
pumps wore required to bundle it.
"The diflicultlos to be surmounted
wore so great and the expense so enormous that thu proporty was abandoned, but since thu oloctrical transmission ot powor has become an established tact the Comstock is again being
drained of tho accumnlated water and
tho chances aro thnt with thc improved machinery It will again become a great dividend payor. Tho
flow of water from this proporty is by
somo clever devices made to furnish
electric powor to drive the machinery.
"All over Colorado and In tho other
mining statos of thc wost and in British Columbia oloctrical apparatus is
coining more and more into uso. Perhaps nowhere is this uso more general than lu Cripple Crook. Nearly
all the samller plants hare electric
hoists and the larger ones arc being
giaduully equipped with tbem. Every
day some properties aro adopting elec-
tirc power where it has not. herotoforo
boon employed. It Is often much more
easily available than steam power for
a line of poles can he permanently
afllxed to a stoop hillnidn and maintained summer and winter where tho
utmost difTlculy would be obtained in
securing supplies of coal.
"It s*_tns quite likely therefore that
the coining power of big mines and
small mlnos is electric powor. both by
reason of its convenience and its
conoiny.    And by thc very   reason  of

its economy it will enable small propositions to develop into paying mines
and will enable bigger properties to
pay greater dividends."
(Irano Forks and Columbia are now
happily wedded under the name of
Miner. Tho change in name was duo
to the prejudice which the residents
of each town had against the other.
The citizens of Orand Forks felt that
life would be burdensome if the consolidated town's name was made Columbia, and Columbia residents would
prefer to remain in single blessedness
to residing in a municipality called
Grand Forks. Now that tbe amalgamation has boon effected, with the exception of tho legal formalities, Miner
should forge rapidly to tbelront, as it
has around it ono of thc garden spots
of British Columbia In tbo Kettle
River valley which stretches twenty
miles east and west with an area of
about'15,OIK) acres. Thegiain, fruit
and vegetable crops in thu valley aro
very prolitic, while the grassy hillsides stretching up from the valley
furnish good ranging ground for cat
tie. Minor is certain to bo a railway
center of considerable importance mid
already has one smelter in operation
and at least one other is promised.
Besides it has valuable mineral properties closo at band aud tbe recent
discovery ot coal measures in a section which Is tributary to it should
form an important factor in the upbuilding of tbo pluce.
The Citizens of Miner aro of tbe typo
who could, if needs he, build uo a
city in u wilderness or on a desert.
They are pushing, energetic, have the
utmost   faith   in their town   and   are
certain tbat it bus a bright future,
and arc endowed with a public spirit
which prompts they to do all that
thoy can and oven make personal sacrifices for the public good. Minor
should, therefore, from now on be a
prosperous coin nt unity.
Legitimate rivalry between towns
like Orand Forks and Columbia is
propor and helps each, but when tho
feeling between cities and sections
degenerates so that the peoplo of one
locality circulate libels concerning
the other tbey unconsciously harm tbo
entire district, and their own seetion
in the estimation ol the outside
world. It Is tbe sumo way with the
owner of u olaim, who trios to build
up tbo repntation of bis property by
running down tbat of the adjoining
location. The communities of the
Kootenays and Vale should stand
together and be truly loyal to each
other, us it is by having u community
of interests lhat tho eountry can be
bent built up. Ml must woik lu harmony for the general good and the
motto    should    be    like   that   of   the
"Three Guardsmen," "Ono tor all,
and all for one." What we want hero
is more people nnd eapital with which
to develop our mines and othor industries. If another community In this
suction happens to become larger and
more Important than Kelson it should
not cause hor residents any tiueiisi.
ness, on the contrary,    they should be
pleusod beoause the   biggot the other
towns grow tbo more trade wo will
secure from them.
There aie many natural advantages
in and about Nelson and the future of
the city will rest on the ability of Unpeople to take bold of tbem and turn
them to tbo best account. So far this
has beon done to tbo extant of our capital nnd nhilltios, and if Ihe sumo
enterprise, the same energy, the same
keoness is shown for the next few
ycarr It may be regarded as certain
that Nelson when the next census is
tuken will be the largest town in the
interior of Hritish Columbia,
to have discovered, a year ago, that
epilepsy was caused by a parasite.
He now announces the discovery of
the means of destroying the parasite,
and claims to have actually cured a
young lady of epilepsy by the process.
In another column will be found
the returns on a shipment of ore from
tho famous Triune mine, There were
_1 tons in the shipment and the total
gross value was 85,435, Deducing tho
cost of freight and treatment, mining
etc., and there wa6 a charge of $,">
per ton for transporting the oro from
the mine to tlie landing, and it leavos
a net profit of $200 to the ton. This
is an excellent profit, and one which
will be increased when the Triune is
furnished with railway transportation facilities. Still the owners should
be and doubtless aro fully satisfied
with a proiit of $:i00 per ton. The
success of tho Triune shows in a way
the possibilities of the Trout Lake
and Lardeau sections, which contain
some mai'volously rioh mines, and
which iB now being opened by a railway. When this road is finished the
real development of thoso two sections
will be commenced and thsy will nut
quite a prominent figure in the production of the precious and useful
metals. Tbo section is tributary to
Nelson nnd the miners there will purchase most of their supplies here, and
make Nelson tbeir headquarters and its
development will bo quite a factor in
aiding iu our development.

near that town.     The   Porter  Bros.,
who have  a    largo   part   of   tbe con

the driving   of   piles for the construction   of   a   rough "-bridge   across  the

The supplies and material for the

across this bridge, and the work will
then be carrko on Willi but little

of tune to put in a rough bridge, and
the two ends of tl.e grading at Marcus
will then be brought together.
The grading at bulb approaches to

other side of the river about a mile
and a half of work has been done.
On Ibis side, from tbe main hue to
the river, Ihe entire grade is nearly
completed and the trains will sood he

At the present time the road is not
going forward as fast as it should,
owing to thc scarcity of men. Some

English Mining   Journal   Deals   With
Mining In This Province.
The Mining Journal, of London,
Eng., ill its issue of Aug. 17, contains
an exhaustive article under the caption, "British Columbia Economically
Considered." It deals fully with conditions prevailing in this country,
and oonc-udes:
What conclusion then is the British
investor to draw from this statement
of conditions',' Is he to leave British
Columbia severely alone 1 Such a
course would not be justified. Perhaps, purely industrial or manufacturing enterprises are things bos.
avoided under existing conditions, but
mines stand ou a somewhat different
basis. Tho mineral is there, tbe
climate is excellent, there is abundant
wood in every portion of the Province,
and only in a few districts is there
any soarcity of water, and notwithstanding the difficulties tbat have
been spoken of, mining will pay.
Americans make it pay, and why
should not tne English'.' But then the
Americans show more courage, perhaps because they are nearer and can
more easily see with their own eyes.
They buy mineral claims at small
prices while they are not yet ill the
chrysalis stage and are merely
"prospects, " and one fortunate vei-
ture will enable them to pay for many
failures and make handsome profit.
The English capitalists are more inclined to wait until some one else,
generally an American, has developed
the "prospect" into a mine and until
ore is being raised, nnd then to purchase at a iigure which leaves little
room for profit, and which, if the
vein "pinches out,"' as it often docs
in British Columbia, leaves ample
room for loss. The English should
coine in where the Americans do, act
ing on thc advico of some trustworthy
man. w.10 really knows tbe country
and its conditions, and not merely
on that of an expert sent out ad hoc.
If local knowledge Is important in the
case of choosing a property, it is all-
importnnt in the mat c* of managing
it: more than one scheme has been
wrecked owing to the incompetence
for the particular task of tho men
sent from England. American mining
is a tiling apart, and cannot be
thoroughly understood until after a
long apprenticeship, and no amount
of mere technical knowledge will
compensate for ignoranco of the
co.intry and the ways of its people
and Government.

No Official Intimation cf Any Changes
Yet in Royal Itinerary.
Ottawa, Aug. 29,���Official corroboration is still unobtainable of the report that it is contemplated to curtail the itinerary of Their Royal
Highnesses. Wince the programme
was originally published the only
change effected was to alter the date
of the arrival of the royal party in
Toronto from tbe Tth to tho loth of
Outober. The three days thus gained
will be added to the time whicli is to
be occupied on tbe return trip from
Hritish Columbia, No itinerary will
be published for tliis part of the royal
journey, so that the party will be at
liberty to stop over at Hanff or other
points of Interest in the Rooky Mountains, as they may choose.
