RAILWAY TRACK COKPUBTBD CN
FRIDAY MORNINO
Lu-ge Oangti of Men at Work Puttlrg
Dp SUtiona Md Otber Building*
Md Laying Sid* Tracks
Large Cattle Corrale.
Track laying to the end of the grade
eras completed on Friday morning and
tho first train in charge of Conductor Dave McKay arrived in Nicola.
For yean residents of Nicola Valley
have awaited the iron horse and now it
is an accomplished fact, freight and
pasaenger trains are now being arranged.
The completion of the railroad is now
easily within sight. No time is being
lost by the track laying gangs who are
putting down sidings, and switches until the visitor is bewildered by the
numerous array of rails which meet the
eye.
A reference to the plans show that
the C. P. R. fully realise the importance ef Nieola as a shipping point.
The station building measures 30 feet
by 97 feet included In which are a commodious freight shed, express and baggage room, office, waiting room and
household accomodation for the station,
agent. The station is technically
known m i number two station and will
have a platform 900 feet long. The
freight shed measures 40 feet by 30 feet
the waiting room 18 feet by 23 feet, ex
presi and baggage room 17 feet by 10
feet and the office 10 feet by 12 feet.
The household accomodation on the
ground floor comprises a living room
and kitchen which together measure 12
feet by 24 feet and there is ample accomodation upstairs.
The arrangements for sidings have
evidently been made with an eye to an
increasing traffic.
Inside the Y is an engine shed with
accomodation for two locomotives. On
the North side of the track and close
to the river the pump will be fixed and
supply .a water tank which has a capacity of 19,000 gallons and which will
be close to the track near Chinatown.
The section house which has a ground
floor measurement of 29 feet by 15 fe t
with an annex 11 feet by 13 feet besides
good accomodation on the upper floor-
will be placed on the south side of the
track at the beginning of the cut near
the waggon road. On the south side
of the track and n.mrly opposite the
station are the cattle corrals with accommodation for twelve car loads of
cattle. Frank Hoy is in charge of the
construction of the buildings etc.
Altogether the arrangement of the
various buildings has been well thought
out and reflects great credit on whoever was responsible for them as it
will enable the work connected with
the various buildings to be in a great
degree centralised and done with great
er dispateh.
A strong and energetic effort is being
made to hurry the erection of the various buildings and if materials come
up to time, six weeks will see the completion of all buildings and corrals. By
that time practically all the work of
the railroad will be finished and trains
may be expected to run regularly very
shortly after. Meanwhile it is reported
on the best authority that a passenger
coach will be put on the train next week
and this will much facilitate traffic up
and down the line.
While there is quite a hustle at Nic-
plenty of the
best material for the purpose is at the
i disposal of the ballast train, which is
now working on this side of the bridge.
' A matter of two weeks should see this
gang well up to Nicola if not already
' finished by that time.   The fencing gang
i have posts laid on one side of the line
up to Marquarta and are now working
in the other side and are at Tamerton
Ranch.   This gang also will have their
I work completed very shortly.
|   The survey party under H. Carry
| has completed its work on the location
line to Aspen Grove having returned to
Nicola to-day. Alterations have been
made on the location of the line which
will help materially towards a lower
grade. The line from Nicola will run
along the lake level to Quilchena and
wili then climb gradually to Aspon Grove.
No tunnel will be made at GilmourHill.
The line will make a complete circuit
of Pot hole lake, which will prove a
nice piece of engineering and will ten d
to lower the grade to a little over one
per cent. So far the line has been surveyed to AspenGrove P. O

and made a substantial payment on the
coal measures of the Nicola Valley Coal
& Iran Company, whieh is composed of
Messrs. F. L. Carter-Cotton, C. F. Law

to get out, for on their way to jail they
boasted that they would burn their way

The coroner's jury completed its labors with regard to the deaths of Mc-
Kenzie and Cousins in the court house
fire Saturday evening, and rendered a
verdict of death through misfortune,
with a rider added saying that no officials were io blame. The court room was
crowded at the sittings, and when the
verdicts were rendered they met with
general favor.

These coal seams have been known
for the past 85 years, and have been
ami locally until a t*nel 200 feet deep
haa baa driven into ftem. The coal
is high-grade bituminous, and in coking
quality is said to lie second to none in
British Columbia. With the development of these mines it is quite likely
.hat a smelter maf "be, established for
che reduction of tbe Vw'grade ores of
the district, of which there sre immense
deposits, but which to-day itt) lying

' It ia aaid to be th��- mtenttrm of the
owners to proceed at once with development and to mine coal for shipment,
and as the mines are situated only 225
mi lbs from Vancouver by rail they may
become a factor in the supply of that
city. It can also be used as a source ot
supply for the C. P. R. Western Division and for the Great Northern west of
Midway, when the V. V. & E. is completed.

Public School.
During the past few weeks the attendance at the Nicola public school
has been larger than ever before. The
average attendance has been twenty-
nine and for ten straight days the attendance stood at that with not a scholar late. Accomodation is now being
made for more pupils and half-a-dozen
more desks will be added shortly.
For sometime the trustees have been
considering the increased attendance
and there is every probability of a new
and larger school building being erected
during the coming year.
Work is steadily going on at the
diamond Vale drilling operations on the
Garcia property, with good results.

Passed Away.
Miss Catherine Charlotte (Kate) eldest daughter of Mrs. Jane Finalison,
passed away at St. Joseph's hospital
Victoria, last Thursday from typhoid

sinking on the ore, and the canjp is in
good shape to continue work all winter.
Buildings are complete and a good
stock of grub has been packed up the
hill. A shortage of labor is the only
thing that bothers him now, u be it
about five men short of the number that
could be used.
Three claims, the Liverpool, London,
and San Francisco have been bonded by
B. P. Little actii* ter the Diamond

Yorkers interested in Granby, if now
being explored by a large force of men.
Buildings have been erected and the
men are driving a six-hundred foot tunnel to crosscut the lead. This tunnel
is for exploration p_rpaees only, aa it
gives only a depth ef about a hundred
feet. It will, however, prove the width
and character of the ore, and indicate
the best method of carrying on mining
on a large scale.
P. Buna and associates have bonded
and bought seventeen claims on Bear
Creek and are at work croucutting
the leads.
Agriculture In E O.
The provincial government hu just
issued Bulletin No 10, dealing with
agriculture in British Columbia. Tht
Bulletin contains a fund of information
of incalcuable value for intending settlers and others given to this industry.

scattered throughout the publication,
and the whole production reflects the
greatest credit on both the compiler, &
M. Palmer, and the printer.

operations on a local coal property
have  already  been  criticised   in

these columns.   This property was j AmalgamiUi;d Coal UllipaI,yp whlch u
held by a company termed "The
, Nicola Coal and Coke Company"
whose president was S. Andrew
Hartman and its vice-president and
manager, John Lamont. In these
columns some time back The Nicoln
Herald drew attention to the guile
used by these men in offering shares
in that company to the public and
to the statements made in a most
flowery prospectus which was issued
by them. In an interview with a
coast paper representative, John
Lamont ill the beginning of the
year made the statement: "In my
home city are four different companies holding interests in the Nicola Valley, besides several individuals. We are about to organize a
strong development company to
acquire and consolidate all these
varied interest's." . Evidently the
consolidation has taken place and
under the name of the British Columbia Amalgamated Coal Cotn-
pviy has a. jtiir. 1 the interests of
the foresaid four companies besides
the several individuals. But, in
the flowery advertisement of Owen
J. B. Yearsley nothing whatever i>
said about development. Not only is
this company not incorporated un-
advertibing its stock lor sale in a very
extensive way. Ike Colonist is authorized to say lhat no such company is
known to the Government of British
Columbia, nor has any such company
been incorporated or registered in the
province.
The advertisement is signed by Owen
J. ti. Yearsley, banker and Broker, til
Confederation Lite building, Toronto.
It is in the nature ol an appeal to the
public, couched in the most pathetic
terms, to buy its stock. The auvenis-
meni does not slate that there is such
a company as that named. It does not
say what the capital slock of the company is, nor where its head office is, nor
that it owns an acre of land or a ton of
coal. It says it controls 17,5(10 acres of
coal land in the Nicola Valley estimated
to contain approximately l,4UU,WX),tX>u
tons of coal. It contains this paragraph.
