Captain 0. L Fllrk 01 vea a Few Point*
on the Nioola Valley Ooal,
Mineral, and Thlo/r*
ln Oeneral.
Practical experts are agreed
that the coal measures of the
Nicola district are, beyond contention, far and away superior
to any upon the Pacific slope,
including Vancouver island.
Seams varying from a few
inches to seven or more feet
have been located. Up to date,
development has been at a
standstill not so much from
lack of capital as want of transportation. Now that the railroad contracts are let and transportation assured the eyes of
American, British Columbian
and English capitalists will no
doubt be turned toward the
valley of the Nicola river.
Nicola coal was first discovered by the Indians who packed large quantities to Lytton
for the use of the "smithy"
working there during the rush
to Golden Cariboo. The coal
is, beyond question, excellently
adapted for conversion into
coke for smelter use.
As far as raw  mineral resources go the valley of the
Nicola has been amply endowed by nature; coal, iron and
copper outcrop everywhere, it
but needed the railroad to carry its hidden treasures to the
industrial centres of the provinces-   During the last twelve
months men have been patiently testing the coal fields of the
Nicola district by means of the
most up to date appliances in
the way of core drills. Drilling,
as all the world knows, is expensive work and men who
finance expensive experiments
of this nature do not continue
their operations for such lengthened periods unless the indications of substantial future profits are very good indeed.
As far as iron and copper are
concerned quite a lot of prospecting has been done and the
respective ores carry very good
values.
Quite a lot of the coal rights
in the Nicola valley are reserved by the owners of the soil-
most of whom pre-empted before the government royalty

c ait on a business trip-
The engineers and surveyors for the
Nicola railway are gradually nearing inland of the line. A party in charge of Mr
Hill arrived at Coutlee today and will
work from Ten mil* up to the end of th*
route laid out.
Hilton Keith passed through the Nioola
valley on laat Thursday's stage en route
for Allison where he will transact busi
nesa in connection with tbe townaite
Mr. Keith haa a great opinion of the min
eral resources of the valley and eipres
aed an opinion that the advent of the
railway would make i wonderful change
in the Nioola and Similkameen district*
was imposed by the provincial
legislature.
One may therefore see in
the immediate future dotted
among the hills and valleys
contiguous to the railroad, the
surface machinery of numerous
prosperous collieries.   Collier
ies mean a vast influx of population from whom the agriculturists of the valley may surely
hope  to  reap a rich harvest.
Storekeepers and other business men will also partake of
the general prosperity for which
they have patiently waited so
long.
construction is not without in
terest at the present time. The
tents of the various camps one
encounters at intervals, snugly
clustering in leafy groves, look
ing for all the world like pleas
ure party camping. Again, one
sees, far up clinging to the face
of a cliff two, or perhaps, three
men; they look like flies upon
a wall; then, there is a sudden
and rapid descent���a pause���a
roar, and twenty or thirty tons
of rock are hurled into the bed
of the Nicola.   Sometimes the
air waves set in motion by the
explosion of a heavy charge
will bring down heavy masses
of rock and earth which are
quite distant from the scene ol
construction--and destruction
Passengers by the stage who
know well the valley road are
thrown out of their reckoning
by sudden deviations across
newly constructed bridges; in
places the picks and shovels of
the gangs are hard at work in
close proximity to the wagon
road, so close indeed that it
scarce seems possible for the
stage to pass, where but a few
short weeks ago, sage brush
and pine grew in silent solitude,
one now sees a trim embankment���while near and far one
hears the stroke of pick or
harsh metallic clang as the
dump cars shoot their load.
Some ten miles out from
Spences Bridge one comes suddenly Upon the hospital, which J -ccumpanied by hia son, arrived in Nioola
this morning    Mr. Nicol ia interested in
aon river, half a mile weat of the C. P. R.
station and direetl- opposite the Indian
rancherie.   The ilido descended to tbe
river with great velocity and ewept tb*
water and debris on the poor, unfortunate Indiana.   Many ran for their live*
others in their houaea were awept out of
existence without a momenta warning.
Every building on the reaerre waa awept
away and nothing now remains but debri*
and rocks.   Th*  new  chur.-h   was  th*
most substantial building, but it waa lifted and carried a considerable distance
sway by the impact of the water and reduced lo kindling wood.   Immediately
the slide descended a mighty wave, ten to
fifteen feet  high,   started up the river
against the current, sweeping for oyer
two milea and flooding tbe buildings oo
the river bottom.   The river wa. completely dammed  for a couple of hour*
and roae over twenty feet in that time be-
f<re it found an outlet.
The work of reacue was oommenced
immediately and twelve maimed and in-
jured men, women and children were
picked up and placed in the temporary
hospital, where they were attended to by
Dr. Kerr of the Nicola railway conatruo-
tion department. Assistance was wired
for to Kamloops ��nd Ashcroft and Dr*.
