NICOLA COAL MINES
HOW THEY WILL AFFECT INDUST
RIAL BRITISH COLUMBIA.
"Bruce" ln tbe Saturday Sunset Writes
Instructively on the Progress and
Possibilities of the Valley's
Coal Resources.
One of the most substantial and far-
reaching developments of the many now
in progress in this province at the present moment, is being vigorously but
quietly pushed up in the Nicola valley.
These immense fields of coal are being
tapped and opened and before the public
of this coast will have realized it a new
and permanent source of first-class coal
will be available.
The memory of last winter's fuel
scarcity when scores of furnaces were
burning the last shovelful before a meagre new supply could be had, when all
that stood for the comfort and health of
hundreds of families in Vancouver was
often a lone sack of coal, secured by
dint of much persuasion and telephonic
conversation, from dealers who would
gladly have furnished the coal but could
not, because it was not to be had ��� all
these things are fresh in the minds of
hundreds of Vancouver citizens.
Important, however, as a steady and
sufficient supply of coal is for domestic
purposes, that is one of the least important of the many beneficial
results which will accrue to Vancouver
and the province at large by the development of the Nicola coal fields. The
production of a large and steady supply
of coal in the Nicola valley is practical
insurance against fuel shortage on the
mountain division of the C P. R. or of
the smelters in the Boundary country,
for in a year or so it is expected that
coke of a very superior quality and in
very large quantities will be produced
in the Nicola valley.
It is about 35 years since coal was first
discovered on the banks of the Coldwater
river, and it was taken out intermittently for a quarter of a century from a
small gulch known as Coal Gully. This
gulch is situated high up on the hillside
and it is nothing more or less than a cut
worn through the gravel and sandstone
and coal seams. No less than four
seams were exposed in this gulch, varying from two to eighteen feet thick. In
this latter seam a tunnel was started,
from which the settlers in this part of
the country for many years helped
themselves.
Last fall a company was organized,
of which John Hendry is president,with
W. H. Armstrong as vice-president and
general manager for the company.
Early in the winter work was commenced on the old tunnel which was cleaned
up and put into shape for rapid extension.
Drifting in the tunnel has been pushed from that time until the present.and
it is now in over 1000 feet. As depth
was attained the coal steadily increased
in quality, until at the 400-foot level the
coal is almost a semi-anthracite, being
very hard, very bright and clean, depositing no clinkers in the grate, and very
low in ash. All the coal taken out in
the drifting operations has been sold to
the C. P. R., and used on the Nicola
branch in their locomotives. The firemen and engineers on this branch are
unanimous ln saying it is the best steaming coal they have ever used in this
province. As a domestic coal it is safe
to say that the Nicola product will
greatly exceed in quality any that has
ever been put on this market.
The tunnel has an average dip of 35
degrees from the old portal. The company is now drifting a permanent working double track tunnel lower down on
the hill to strike the coal seam at the
900-foot level. This will enable thorn
to tap a blanket of coal extending over
many hundreds of acres, and eighteen
feet thick, every pound of which can
be run down hill out of the mines. The
significance of this statement will appear to even a tyro in mining matters,
when the immense cost of installing and
operating a hoisting plant capable of
lifting a thousand tons of coal per day
out of mines 500, 1000 or 2000 feet deep,
as the case may be, is considered. Not
only have deep level mines the enormous e.tpense of lifting their coal from
these great depths, but they have also
the heavy expense of pumping out the
water which finds its way into the mines.
This item alone, in many cases, would
represent a handsome profit on the capitalization of the Nicola Valley Coal &
Coke Company. In their mines there
will not be a dollar invested in pumping
machinery, nor a cent of cost for keeping the mine clear of water, except the
installation of ordinary pipe drains. Another element in this feature is that the
mine will never be in danger of flooding
by pumps breaking down or other accidents, as the water finds its way out naturally.
The company is now building a railway switch from the track of the Nicola
branch, a mile or so, to connect with
the portal of the mine.

ITEMS OF INTEREST
ENJOYABLE TENNIS FARIY HELD
ON DOMINION DAY.
Time to Harvest Thistle Crop.  Great
Fiscal Year For Province -Price
of Platinum.- New Monthly
M&gailne For B. O.
An enjoyable tennis party was given
on the Athletic Association grounds on
Monday afternoon. There was a fair
attendance preseut, and refreshments
wnre served by the ladies. Most of
those present took part in the tennis
and some excellent games were the result. The function was so successful
that it is hoped to have a repetition at
an early date, and also to inaugurate a
tournament for mixed doubles, which
will add zest to the afternoon's sport.
Homeward Bound.
Premier McBride sailed from England
on Saturday, June 29th, on the Empress
of Ireland.
New Lumber Company.
Among the incorporated companies
gazetted last week is the Adams River
Lumber Company, capitalized at half a
million.
Pigeon Found.
A homing pigeon was found dead at
C. Newkirk's, Voght valley last week.
On its leg was a silver ring with the inscription, "V. H. C. 7 14-1906."
Souvenir Edition.
For the fourth time in its history the
North Vancouver Express has issued a
souvenir edition. The issue just to hand
contains fourteen pages, is well illustrated and printed and reflects great credit
on the staff of this well edited weekly.
Rossland Tuberculosis Fund.
The chairman of the Rossland branch
of the Anti-Tuberculosis Society of the
province last week transmitted to the
treasurer of the society at the coast the
sum of $1102, which represents the contributions of the residents of the city to
the funds of the society.
Death of Old Timer.
Mat Finlay, well known in the interior, died at New Westminster on June
21st. He resided for some time at Ash-
nola, near Princeton. About five years
ago his mind became affected, and he
was removed to the Provincial Insane
Hospital. A widow and daughter survive him.
Drowned ln Bear River.
The death from drowning on June 16
of George Pinkerton in Bear river has
just been reported. The deceased in
company with Joseph Wendle attempted the decent of Bear river, which has
a very Bwift current, when the boat was
swamped. Wendle managed to reach
shore but Pinkerton sunk and was
drowned. The deceased was a native of
Barkerville and 30 years of age.
J. A. Meldrum, of the Diamond Vale
Coal & Iron Mines, Ld., left on Tuesday
on a visit to the coast.
Prevent the Spreading of Thistles.
It is at this period of the year that
owners of property on which thistles are
growing should take steps to have the
same cut down. The law on the matter is very stringent, and to save proceedings owners should do their best to
eradicate the pest. The owners of
property in and around the Nicola valley have been notified, and it is hoped
they will take steps to minimize as
much as possible the spread of this
noxious weed.
New Western Canada Monthly.
The initial number of Westward Hois
to hand. It is a magazine devoted to
British Columbia interests, and is edited
by William Blakemore, while Percy F.
Godenrath acts as business manager.
There are some very readable articles
in the present number, one of the niost
interesting being that on a naturalist's
workshop by Bonnycastle Dale. Clive
Phillips-Wolley is also a contributor,
and the literary contents of the magazine are excellent. Succees ought to
crown the efforts of the promoters of
the new magazine, and especially so if
the high standard of the present number is maintained in future numbers.
Great Fiscal Year.
The provincial fiscal year ended on the
30th of June, and it is officially estimated that the total revenue for the year
1906-7 from timber sources alone will
reach $800,000. This revenne is derived
from timber licenses, leases, royalties
and export taxation, and as the cost of
collection amounts to practically nothing, this large sum may be said to be a
clear profit.
The revenue of the Timber Department for the fiscal year just closed will
be several hundred thousand dollars in
excess of that of the preceding fiscal
year, and will make a new record. The
increase is due in great measure to the
activity in timber during the past twelve
menths, the government having received an enormous amount of money from
fees on newly staked limits.
jumped to $25 an ounce, where it remained until September 1, 1906, when
it leaped to the unprecedented value of
$34 an ounce.
Mr. Horton's report also shows that
the production of platinum in the United
States increased from 200 ounces in 1904
to 318 onnces in 1905. This report is
published as an advance chapter of the
annual volume, "Mineral Resources of
the United States, 1905," and is distributed free of charge, on application
to the United States Geological Survey.

Platinum $84 An Ounce.
The year 1907 saw a phenomenal rise
in the price of platinum and a greatly
increased production in the Uuited
States. The annual report of the United
States Geological Survey on the production of platinum, prepared this year by
F. W. Horton, contains details of exceptional interest. It shows that early
in March, 1905, the price of ingot platinum advanced from $19.60 an ounce to
$21 an ounce, surpassing gold in value.
On April 1st, 1905, the price fell to
$20.50 and remained firm at this quotation until February 1, 1906, when it
Mrs. Jos. Cleasby, of Petit Creek, returned from the coast on Wednesday,
where she had been visiting her son,
who is attending St. Louis College.
She was accompanied by Miss Priestly,
who will visit with the family for several weeks.
The summer vacation began last week
at St. Louis College, New Westminster.
Premiums were awarded students who
had obtamed the highest marks. Nieola students' names appear in the list of
prize winners: Good conduct and general deportment, Th. Cleasby, Lower
Nicola; prize for application, J. Guichon, Quilchena; prizes for general pro-
ficience, second division-first prize, G.
Guichon; second prize, Th. Cleasby.
No Reason Why Nieola Valley Should
Not Be Represented.-Quilchena
Has Fine Track   Lively Interest Taken ln Sport
It has been suggested that a racing
circuit be formed to embrace several of
the more important centres in the upper
country. Ths places named are Golden,
Kamloops, Vernon, Armstrong, Enderby, Kelowna and Revelstoke. There
seems to be no valid reason why at least
one of the centres in the Nicola valley
should not be represented on this cir
cuit. There is a good track at Quilchena, and the makings of one at Nicola, and the residents of the valley are
no whit behind their neighbors in the
interior in their love of sport. At one
time in the history of the valley, Quilchena was the scene of some of the finest horse racing ever seen in the province, and there is no reason why this supremacy should not return to it.
The fact that in this district we have
one of the finest horse raising districts
in the province should go a long way to
attract owners, and were awfirst class
track handy, where animals could be
trained and exercised, there is no doubt
that many owners would winter their
horses in the district.
With regard to the formation of a
racing circuit, this would tend to secure
much better racing than has hitherto
been possible at the local meets, and
dates could be arranged which would
prevent clashing, and allow owners to
attend the various centres with much
less expense than would otherwise be
the case. Many of the residents in this
district are interested in racing, and
the present time is opportune for a move
to be made in this direction. Perhaps
at present a turf association might be
formed, and the matter of the proposed
circuit taken up and fully discussed,
and representati ml made to the other
centres on the q'i stion.
There is nut the slightest doubt that
a very strong turf association could be
formed in this district and it is hoped
that something of this nature will materialize at an early date. With a Nicola Valley Turf Association and its necessary corollary, a good track somewhere in the district, the matter of
horse racing in the valley would attract
some attention and help, too, to advertise the district.
J. E. Shivel, of Merritt, was a visitor
to Nicola on Tuesday.
J. Haddock, of Ashcroft, is visiting in
the valley this week.
H. Goodisson, of Coutlee, left yesterday on a visit to the old country.
P. J. Russell, of the Vancouver-Prince
Rupert Meat Co., was in town buying
up cattle for his markets.
Rev. D. K. Allan left yesterday
morning for Aspen Grove, where he will
attend the burial of the infant son of
James Brown.
Mrs. Raspberry and her daughter,
Mrs. Curry, arrived in Nicola on Wednesday's train and left the same night
for Quilchena.

atGleichen, near Calgary, last week
the testimony went to show that there
is a combine among the large buyers. THE NICOLA HERALD

the everu|jgs when the merrily vo
cal mosquito gets in her irritating
work, says The Province. The
feminine pronoun is used advisedly
as it is well known that it is only
the female mosquito that bites. It
is only she that is furnished with a
sort of sawmill and outfit of surgical instruments combined. The
male representative of the genus
culex is a comparatively delightful
little fellow who stays at home and
attends to the children while the
"missis" goes on opera tours and
sings in dramas redolent of gore.
At the twilight time when all nature seems to rest; when the tired
and worthy citizen turns after his
day's labor to the irrigation of the
lawn, and the ease of his veranda
chair, then this feminine insect
might b. supposed to say, quoting
Hamlet:
"���Now could T drink hot blood,
And do such bittu LusiiMM as the
day
Would quake to look on."
But even so she is by no means
content with mere words. If she
quoted at all it would be a word
and a bite, and the bite first.
The modern mosquito policy is to

the insects that prey on vegetation.
The mortality among such pests
has been enormous. Arsenic and
chloride of barium act slowly but
they are effective. In view of all
this it seems strange that we have
not by this time dispensed with the
common housefly. He may have
his uses in the beneficient scheme
of the universe, but to the
minds of horses, cows and men he
appears to be an unmitigated nuisance. Mosquitos are considerate

An agitation is being made just
now for a change in the leadership
��f the opposition at Ottawa. The
B.C. Saturday Sunset in a vigorous editorial presses the claims of
Hon. F. W. G. Haultain as the
most natural choice, and one which
would prove acceptable to the majority of the electorate in the western provinces. Mr. Haultain is a
man on whom all wings of the party may unite. He has shown himself a man of great self-control under trying circumstances; he is
posessed of moderation and strength
and has what Mr. Borden conspic
uously lacks, personal magnetism
and popularity. Mr. Haultain is
the only prominent man in public
life iu Canada with a perfectly consistent record on the separate school
and other public questions. His
superior diplomatic abilities, his
record as an administrator in the
face of great and discouraging conditions, his qualities as a fighter
and his personal popularity all
point to him as the coming man in
the camps of the Conservative party in Dominion politics.
