previously a silent, primeval wilderness,
says the "Sunset," has been metamorphosed into a scene of busy activity.
Tunnels have been bored into the coal
and are giving forth at the rate of 225
tons a day now. Railway switches have
been built in, the air is full of the noises
of shunting cars, roaring avalanches of
coal, tooting whistles, the exhaust of
steam anginas and the rattie of mine
cat's. A town has been built to accommodate the men who work thtn, Watar
works   have   been   installed,    tipples
erected, stores are being built, a barber
shop is in full swing, all sorts of businesses incidental to a thriving young
town are being started.   Mind you, all
this in less than six months.   And in
the month of November, the fifth month
of operations, ttht mines have shipped
out 8,000 tons of coal, and that merely
in the course of developmentoptrations.
The first important work in develop-
in mt was to drift a gangway on the
slope of the Jewel seam over-800 feet.
Having by this means accurately ascertained the dips-as well as the thickness
of the seam, 18 feet 6 inches-it was
then possible to start from the surface
and drift the main working tunnel from
which the coal in the big seam may bt
most  economically taken out.     This
main tunnel is 630 feet long and is built
large enough to accommodate a double
track tramway. At its mouth are temporary tipples of 800 tons capacity.
Only  four  chutes  have as ytt  been
installed in this seam, but others will
be added as fast as development makes
them advisable.
Number two gangway was started on
August 12th and is now in a thousand
fttt Fourteen chutes are vomiting
forth hundreds of tons daily. Number
two gangway is in the seam first discovered 35 years ago by Mr. Tingley,
but his discovery is nearly a mile further
on. This seam is six fttt thick in shipping coal.   This tunnel, like that in |

the Diamond Vale Company last Saturday. The shaft has been sunk to a
depth of seventy feet, and the thickness

This bears out the results of the drilling
operations which were carried on over
a year ago, and there is little doubt
that this seam is only the top one of a
series, and at further depths other and
thicker seams will be encountered. The
quality of the coal is all that could be
desired, and is firm and of excellent
coking quality. The Company is to be
congratulated on reaching a fine body
of coal so near the surface, and it is
understood that arrangements are being
made for the rapid development of the

operations at as early a data as possible.

and will undoubtedly lead, directly as
well as indirectly, to the rapid development of tho district and its other

agricultural.
A market so close to hand for produce
of all kinds is bound to lead to further
agricultural activity, and land now given

(EDITORIAL NOTES.
The changes that have taken
place in the Nicnla Valley during
the past year are certain (if many
additions and further diungcs during the next twelve months. The
fact, now being thorough.) tvali/ed,
that the district is one rich in coal
iiml mineral wealth, is becoming
more evident to _hoKoatt.deevery
div. In the case of coal, while lhe
results obtained from drilling operations were admitted to be evidence
of existent coal areas, there seemed
to be a certain amount of apathy,
and an hesitation on the part of
owners to embark on what was
not thoroughly tangible.    Even
change of ownership in many cases
did not item to better things, and
for many years, although coal areas
were known to exist in the Nicola
district, little or nothing was done
to prospect them.
Tlie change to-dny can hardly be
realized. In the case of one company, within the short space of
twelve mouths, coal is being regularly shipped, and the tonnage is
increasing week by week. In tlie
course of a few weeks the amount
of tonnage which will lie .hipped
every day would come as a surprise
to many who have not actually
visited tlie scene of operations.
On another property, shaft sinking has beeu conducted for sonic
time, and last week reached a good
seam of coal. This property is
being rapidly prepared to ship coal
tn outside points. Besides these,
Other properties are not idle, and
development operations are the rule
rather than the exception on almost
every coal property in the district.
While the extent of the coal area
is a question on which there is disagreement, even among the professors, the area which has actually
been prospected and is known to
carry coal is a fairly large one, and
certainly enough to find employment for a large body of men, and
is not under the entire ownership
of one company.
While the coal areas are thus
being actively prospected, and that
from a commercial rather than a
scientific point of view, it must not
be lost sight of that the district is
equally rich in mineral resources.
Just at the moment copper is a
thing to be avoided in trying to
interest capital, but the reasons for
this are Only temporary aud are
certain not to last very long. Tlie
copper deposits of the Nicola district arc in much the same predicament lhat the coal anas were in
si,me time
It is a faet that interested parties
have done their best, or rather their
worst, to minimise the value of
these deposits and more than one
hard knock has been struck at
them, only to fall harmlessly.
Business is business, of course, but
the attempt to belittle a good
mineral camp, with the object of
boosting a rival iu another section
of the province is hardly fair and
should certainly be put down,
harming as it does one district,
without any material advantage to
the other.
Experts over and over again have
stated that the copper belt in the |
Nicola district is one which deserves
to be thoroughly prospected and
developed, and is bound to repay
those who do so. As a matter of
fact the amount of development on
any claim or group of claims is
hardly etnough to prove it a mine,
although the showings are such as
to lead anyone who knows to realize
that the makings of a mine are
there. The ksson to be learnt is a
hard one, but it must be faced.
Development work is necessary,
and if carried out there can be no
doubt a-, to the result. The coal
areas have taught this; known for
years, nothing was done until active
development was started, and the
result, look at Middlesboro.
Aspen (irove and Ten Mile camps
might take the lesson to heart and
profit by it.

Large Increase ln Fruit Acreage.
The immense progress made by the I
fruit growing industry in this province;
in the last few years is illustrated by
figures furnished the recent convention
of fruit growers in Vancouver by Hon.:
R. G. Tatlow, minister of agriculture.
In 1891 there were 7,430 acres in fruit,
with about 650,000 fruit trees.   In 1906 j
there were 49,000 acres in fruit with a '
grand total of 2,000,000 fruit trees.
It has been estimated that in southern |
British Columbia there are over 100,000, j
00,1 acres lit for fruit culture, while in,
the north n I thi rt an from
1,000,000 to 4,000,000 more acn : g_
territory which will some day be available. Apple', plums, DI in md cherries
have been grown with great success on
the Aim river, and il _ believed that
this will prove true of most of the
vaheys of the northern portion of the
province.

is thought would aqua the lotal of the
latter figures.
In the last four years, the increase in
exports according to the returns from
the express and railway companies, was
2,400 tons, the toial amounting to
11,882'tons,
The prices of fruit have been well
maintained during the past year,
amounting to about the same II in 1900.
A gratifying feature of the development in the past few years is the
growth of the exports to England.
