COAL OPERATIONS
AOTIVB PROSPECTING OOING ON IN
THB DISTRICT.
Option Taken On Properties At Lower
Nicola.  Drilling To Be Commenced Soon.  Coal Areas May
Extend Further.
Last week options were granted on
several properties located at Lower
Nicola and vicinity for the coal rights.
It has been known for some time that
there was every probability of coal being found in that locality, but this is the
first time that options have been obtained in this part of the valley. A drill
has been placed on the ground and it is
expected that active operations will be
started on one of the properties at a
very early date. It shows the keen interest which is being taken in coal
properties in this valley by outside capital, that there was Borne competition
with regard to the options which were
given.
Prospecting for coal is being energetically carried on in many parts of the
valley at the present time, and although
complete results are not yet to hand,
there is every possibility of the coal
areas of the Nicola valley being proved
to extend much farther than was previously thought possible. The importance of this industry to the valley and
its residents cannot be too much insisted on. and the work now being carried
on will, it is hoped, prove the existence
of a large and well defined body of coal
which, with the bodies of coal that have
already been opened up, will give the
Nicola valley one of the foremost places
in the province as a high grade coal
producer.
Sharpies Tubular Cream Separator.
The Tubular Separator Bowl has revolutionized cream separators - made
"back numbers" of all competitive machines.
The Tubular Separator Bowl has a
small diameter-all others have large
diameters. This small diameter bowl is
protected by patents-other manufacturers cannot make or imitate it. It is
light-others heavy. Dairy Tubular
bowls have no contraptions "inside-all
others have. They are guaranteed
to skim closer than bowls filled with
cones discs, vanes or other inside parts
- produce better, sweeter, frothless
cream, cause less work, need fewer repairs. They are far ahead of all other
separator bowls.
The Tubular bowl is set differently
from all others. It is hung from a single ball bearing-all others are set on
top of a couple or triple bearing spindle
-will wabb'le and bind, because top
heavy.   The Tubular bowl is set right.
The new milk enters the Tubular bowl
at the bottom-all others are fed from
the top. The Tubular bowl does not
mix the whole milk with the partly
skimmed milk-permits the supply can
to set low, saves time, power and your
back. The Tubular bowl certainly has
made great changes, all to the advantage of the farmer and dairyman. It
has gone a long way ahead of other separator bowls, much to the disadvantage
of the other fellows, because they still
make bowls that are "back numbers."
Be sure and see a Sharpies Tubular
Cream Separator now on exhibition at
the Stage Office, Nicola.

Irrigation Convention.
A convention to consider and discuss 1
the matter of irrigation to the fullest
extent will be held at Calgary on the
17th of July. There will be a large and
representative gathering from Alberta
and British Columbia, and there should I
be some representation from this dis-
trict. The question is of the utmost
importance to the rancherB in the valley
and it is to be hoped that a strong effort
will be made to have Nicola valley represented at this important meeting.

Vale.-Henderson Appointed Yukon Governor.
A treat is in store for Nicola people
on Wednesday evening of next week
when the ladies of St. John the Baptist
church will give a gaiden party on
"Pine-hurst" lawn, at the residence of
A. E. Howse. Strawberries, ice cream,
charming smiles and other delicacies of
the season will be served by the ladies.
Besides, there will be lots of fun and
amusement during the evening, and unless you are sick in bed you cannot afford
to miss this event. The garden party
is gotten up more from a social than a
mercenary spirit, but if any profits
should accrue they will be devoted towards the new vicarage building fund.
The evening of enjoyment will be fittingly topped off with a dance in Pooley's hall.
New Hotel at Quilchena.
Work on the new hotel for J. Guichon
at Quilchena is now well under way,
much of the masonry work for the
foundations being already well forward.
Some idea of the structure can be formed from the progress already made.
The building will cover an area, exclusive of outbuildings, of 76 feet by 54 feet.
Large and roomy cellars, with a large
boiler room, will be in the basement.
On the ground floor will be the dining
room, reading room, bar, lavatories,etc.
The upper portion of the building will
be devoted to bedrooms, sitting room,
etc. The hotel will be steam heated
throughout, and will be in every respect
a first class and up to date hostelry,
worthy of the unequalled summer resort in which it is situated.

Fire At Diamond Vale.
Fire broke out in the dining room of
the Diamond Vale Coal Co. early on
Sunday morning. This, the latest building put up by the Diamond Vale Co.,
was but recently completely finished,
and no cause can be assigned for the
origin of the outbreak.
The total loss sustained has not yet
been ascertained, bnt it is expected it
will be considerable, as there was a
large quantity of lumber stored beneath
the building, while nearly a month's
food supply was stored in the kitchen
connected with the dining room. No
further damage was done and work on
a new dining room has already been
started and will be pushed to completion
without delay. More men have been
engaged at the coast and will be up
thi:i week, so that the new building will
be ready for occupancy at an early
date.
B. 0. Oontrols Her Own Fisheries.
The important announcement that the
fisheries of British Columbia have now

British Columbia Fisheries Acts and
Amendment Acts of 1901, 1902 and 1907
are proclaimed as coming into force by
the lieutenant-governor in council.

Leonard, Agent.
Two weeks from Monday is Dominion
Day.
There seems to be an unusually well
developed amount of inactivity among
the young men of Nicola as regards organizing for a line of summer sports.
FRUITS. - Strawberries, Peaches,

The demonstrations given by Dr.
Cross during the past week with the
different sizes of the Sharpies Tubular
Cream Separator have convinced the
most skeptical that for simplicity in operation and results obtainable the above
machine is without a peer. Several local purchasers have nothing but the
highest praise for the Sharpies. 1
Not Depending Entirely On Its Mineral
Resources.-Its Agricultural Pot-
,        nihilities a Valuable Asset.
-On Dairy Farms.
He would be a wise man who could
foretell what lies in the future for the
Nicola valley. Seemingly, the prosperity of the district is bound up with so
many diverse industries that it would
almost seem impossible for the future
of the valley to be other than prosperous. There cannot be the slightest
doubt that the prospects for the future
of the district are of the rosiest, although it may be some time before signs
of it become evident. In many ways,
however tnis might be hastened, and
advantage taken of the many natural
resources, in which the district is so
abundant, to creat an active interest in
the valley and its possibilities. It is
bound to take time before either the
copper mines or the coal fields are in a
position to employ a large force of labor, although it is probable that with
the progress which is being made with
coal operations, a large body of men
will soon be at work on the latter. With
the copper properties, however, a large
amount of development work has to be
done in the majority of cases before the
shipping of ore in anything Uke quantities can be done.
In its coal and copper properties the
Nicola valley is in rather an enviable
position, there being in the case of both
products properties ready to ship, or
which, with a very little work, could be
got ready in a very short time.
While the district depends largely for
its future growth on its mineral resources, it must not be lost sight of that in
its agricultural possibilities it has a
most valuable asset, one, too, which is
independent of any ring or clique, and
whose products find a ready market.
With the railroad at our very door steps
there cannot now be any excuse that a
market is unable to be reached, or that
the freight rates would absorb all the
profits, and thjre is therefore no excuse
if those engaged in agricultural pursuits
do not take advantage of the opening
which has been given them.
There is plenty of room for various
industries connected with the soil, and
none are so badly needed as a few dairy
farms, it being hardly to the credit of
the district that it depends almost entirely on outside sources for its butter.
In the matter of early vegetables, too,
it is a customer where it could efsily be
a seller, there being in the valley more
than one place where early vegetables
have been successfully grown, and not
as an experiment either.
It should be the object of those resident in the district to make the very
most of its natural resources, and to develop them as far as possible, as only
in this way can visitors see that ourdis-
trict has the advantages claimed for it.
A. W. Strickland and Mrs. Strickland
paid a visit to the coast this week.
R. H. Lee, of Kamloops, has teen
busy this week surveying the townsite
of Merritt.
J. B. Greaves, of Douglas Lake, and
George Bent left on Tuesday's train on
a visit to the coast.
E. A. Seeton left on Tuesday's stage
for Otter Flat, where he will take over
the management of H. L. Roberts' new

EDITORIAL NOTES.
It is but just that the provincial
gov .nment should assume control
of the fisheries and the proclamation in last week's issue of the Gazette is the first step in this direction. There is no doubt that this
action will receive the hearty support of the people of the province,
and more especially of those actively engaged in the fishing industry.
Being as it is one of the most important of the industries of the province, it is but right that the supreme control should lie in the
hands of the provincial authorities.
The privy council has given the decision that the fish rights are with
the province, although the Dominion has the right to frame regulations for the conduct of the fisheries. A large revenue accrues to
the Dominion from the sale of licences, a great deal more than is
expended on the supervision of the
fisheries. The provincial government has expended large sums in
one way and another in connection
with the fisheries, although it derives up to the present no direct
benefit from them. In now asserting its rights, as did Ontario several years ago, an attempt is made
to end the unsatisfactory position
that our fisheries occupy under present circumstances, and the action
of the provincial government should
be heartily endorsed by all residents
of the province.
There is evidently an indication
among many of the residents of the
valley to realize the possibilities in
store for this district in the way of
dairying, fruit growing and kindred pursuits. While there are not
many orchards, and fewer dairy
farms, most of those engaged in
cattle raising aud agricultural pursuits are slowly coming round to
the opinion that in the very near
future they will be compelled to
take up one or other, or a combination of these industries. Nor need
any fear be entertained that this
will be the beginning of the end.
On the contrary, it will be only the
beginning of an era of prosperity,
that other districts, either more
blessed or more wide awake than
our own, are now feeling tlie benefit of in a very marked degree. In
Alberta the day of the open range
has passed away, to give place to
the wheat farmer and the dairy
farm, and already in this province
the first signs of this change are to
be seen, which will make British
Columbia the banner province of
the Dominion.
