Started at One*.
Work on the Diamond Vale Coal Com
pany's properties at the Forks will be
prosecuted with renewed vigor from the
beginning of the year. While waiting
for the results from the bore holes
which were lately drilled and which have
corroborated in every particular the high
opinions of this coal field expressed by
the late Dr. Dawson and lately by Dr.
R. W. Ella, the management have not
been idle but have formulated an extensive scheme of operations for the
mining of coal and the thorough development of their properties. As will be
noted from the advertising columns of
this paper quite a little army of men is
required to carry out the work decided
upon by the management.
The necessary buildings will be started on right away and include, besides
boarding houses for the men, offices,
warehouse, carpenter shop, blacksmith
ahop and other buildings.
The sinking of two shafts will be
commenced at once, one shaft being on
the line between the Charters and Garcia properties and the other some distance south, the latter shaft being sunk
to a depth of 600 feet. A gallows frame
for the shaft will be started on right
away.
The large amount of lumber required
on a scheme of this magnitude has decided the management on the erection
of an up-to-date saw mill with a capacity of 15,000 feet per day, and work on
the necessary buildings for this will be
commenced immediately. In connection
with the saw mill, the company have
acquired some excellent timber limits
which are in close proximity to their
properties and which will provide them
with a lumber of the highest grade.
Theheadquai jrs of the operating department will be located at the Forks,
and the ��� iffice staff will be installed
there after the first of the year. The
drilling operations carried on by the
Diamond Vale Company, under the direction of B. P. Little, C. E��� the engineer and manager, show that they
have a large quantity of coal superior
to any yet found in British Columbia.
The coal is hard and clear, is of excellent coking quality and will stand shipment anywhere. The company are in
a decidedly advantageous position, all
the coal they can produce for several
years to come being already contracted
for.
Readers of the Nicola Herald are familiar with the exhaustive reports made
on this coal field by Dawson and Ells of
the Geological Survey of Canada, who
both expressed the highest opinions of
these coal areas.
The Diamond Vale control some of the
best portions of this aiea and they are
'to be congratulated on the excellent
work being done by them in rapidly and
auccessfully opening up what will prove
to be the finest coal field in the province
containing as it does an almost inexhaustible supply of bituminous coal of
the highest grade and which produces a
compact, firm and coherent coke of the
highest quality.

The annual report of the Department.
of Mines, giving the completed and re-1
vised information descriptive of the
mineral industries of Canada for 1904
has just been issued. The grand total
of the mineral production of Canada for
1904 is valued at $60,073,897. Of this
amount British Columbia contributes
nearly one-third, or $19,316,300. Coal
(and gold each contribute over 27 per
cent, of the total and copper contributes
about 9 per cent. The total production
of copper in the Dominion for 1904 is
valued at $5,306,636, of which amount
British | Columbia produced $4,579,110,
Yale district being responsible for nearly 70 per cent, of thia amount. In the
value of coal mined Nova Scotia takes
first place, with B. C. a good second,
the production of the latter being 1,862,-
625 tons valued at $4,989,174. The output of coke in B. C. shows a very mark-

of 200 tons of magnesite from British
Columbia,  the above amount having
been shipped from Atlin.   The production of lead for 1904 is nearly double
that of the previous year and practically the whole production is from B. C.
The production of silver shows also an
increase, B. C. contributing over 50 per
cent, of the total value, which is$2,047,-
095.   There is thus every evidence that
British Columbia will soon outstrip her
sister provinces and will produce more
than the rest combined.   The increased
attention which is being given to copper
and the high prices obtainable will render it a comparatively easy matter to
make a success of low grade ore properties.   Coal, too, will be produced in
large quantities, and with the building
of more railways new coal fields will be
opened up that that have only been
awaiting the railroad to provide transportation.

The coal lands affected are in the vicinity of Coutlee and the Ten-mile in
the Nicola, and include also the Naik
Indian reserve. That good coal exists
there has already been proven with
drills, and it is because of the presence
of immease coal fields of the finest quality for coking and steam purposes that
there ie promise of so much activity.

two of the best seams which are together 20 feet in thickness and lie about 1500

The appointment of James Bryce to
be ambassador at Washington in sue.
cession to Sir Mortimer Durand is now
admitted by Mr. Bryce himself.
It ia understood that Mr. Bryce's appointment will not take effect until the
reassembling of Parliament in February. His departure will probably be
signalised by his being raised to the
Peerage.
In reply to inquiries by the British
Government, President Roosevelt has
indicated that the appointment of Me.
Bryce will be acceptable to this Government.

Kamloops Nomination.
The Conservatives of Kamloops meet
in convention tomorrow to select a
candidate for the forthcoming provincial elections. As there is no question
of opposition to the Hon. F. J. Fulton
there will be no rivalry in the convention. All Conservatives in the district
are a unit in their support of Mr. Fulton and the government of which he is
an honored member, and we venture to
say that the electors of the riding, of
whatever 6hade of politics, are thoroughly satisfied of the fact that the
constituency has been well represented

H. Di Green-Armytage administrator of the estate of the late Wm.
Charters, has called a meeting of the
creditors of the estate, at his office,
Coutlee, B. C, on Monday, January 7th
1907, at 11 o'clock a. m., for the purpose of examining and verifying the
claims. The creditors are expected to
bring their account books and memoranda with them. A. D. Macintyre, legal advisor to the estate, will be present.
Dewdney Convention.
At the convention of Dewdney electors held on Saturday at Mission Junction, Hon. Richard McBride was again
unanimously chosen as the Conservative
candidate for the next provincial eler
tion.
Conservative Convention.
A meeting of the delegates of Yale
District for the purpose of nominating
a Conservative Candidate for the coming General Provincial Election will be
held at the town hall, Ashcroft, on December 29th, at 1.30 p.m.
Delegates from Nicola Valley Association will leave Friday to attend, and it
is expected that quite a number from
different parts of the riding will be in
attendance.
Work on the station buildings was
held back for a couple of days this week
owing to materials not being to hand.
The window shashes, etc., are now to
hand and work was started up again
this morning and the beginning of next
week will see the completion of the sta

Mlddlesboro Oolleriea.
Work is being prosecuted satisfactorily on the Coal Gully seams by the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co. by the superintendent, Alexander Faulds, M.E.,
and coal is being taken out for local
consumption, The preparatory work
for opening up on a large scale is now
going on and in a short time a large
gang of men will be put on at different
parts of the property, some constructing buildings, bunkers, etc., while others will be engaged developing the property.
Parliament Adjourns.
On the motion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
on Wednesday of last week, the Dominion parliament has adjourned for the
Christmas holidays nntil January 9th.
The sixth annual number of the Ana
conda News is just to hand. It contains
52 pages full of information regarding
the mines and smelters of that section,
and reflects great credit on the enterprising editor and publisher of the bright
little publication,
A. W. Richardson, who has been under Dr. Tutill's care since his accident,
left for Kamloops on Sunday.
The bodies of the three men drowned
at Ashcroft on the 5th have not yet
been found. Theprovincialgovernment
is offering a reward of $200 for the recovery of each of the bodies.
A special general meeting of the Nicola Valley Conservative Association
will be held at Coutlee this afternoon at

shown by last year's records, will be
realized from the total output of the
mines of British Columbia this year.
This statement was made the other
day by Provincial Mineralogist Robert-
Mr. Robertson stated that there wac
a much improved condition evident
throughout all the mining camps. The
rise in the price of ore had wrought a
change for the better. The majority of
the properties were operating to their
fullest capacity.
While the advance iu ore values had
stimulated the industry to a marked extent Mr. Robertson said that its full effect had not yet been felt.  Large numbers of properties which formerly had
been deemed unprofitable were being
taken up and exploited.   Capital was
being invested in larger amounts than
ever before.   Outsiders were becoming
I interested and the prospects were that
in the course of one or two years the
output would be largely increased.   It
was hardly reasonable to expect, Mr.
Robertson explained, that these claims
should have any influence npon the records at such an early stage in their development.    It   would  take  twelve
months or more, at least, before the
majority would be ready to make regular shipments.   Once the preliminaries
were overcome and they were added to
the ranks of the active mines of the
province a difference  in the output
would be noted.   He looked for this, aa
he had previously stated, in the very
near future.
Provided the general conditions continued as at present and, assuming that
the market maintained the prices now
quoted, Mr. Robertson looked for a continuance of prosperous times. And, he
added, there appeared to be a very
slight possibility of any important
changes. He expected, therefore, that
the mines in operation would increase
their outputs to meet the demands, that
new mines would continue to show a
disposition to assist in the development
of the immense mineral resources
which British Columbia was known tc
possess.
An increase in the revenue of all the
provincial departments will be shown
at the end of the fiscal year. Thic
gratifying announcement was made yesterday by an official of the treasury
staff. While he could give no definite
figure, he volunteered the statement
that the prosperity being experienced
throughout the province was reflected
in the amount which had been turned
into the provincial coffers, from various
sources, during the last twelve months.

The lands and works department of
the provincial government has never
been busier in the history of British Columbia. According to the records, the
returns for that branch for 1905 totalled
a sum slightly in excess of $72:1,000.
Hon. R. F. Green, the chief commissioner, states that in all probability, before the close of the present fiscal year,
it will reach the $1,000,000 mark. '
After the minister had recited these

O.iii.iiimii or Chamberlain.
A despatch from London says: "The
long retirement of Joseph Chamberlain,
WWWW '<> W*W nn.i ..ih-T ailim-ms, has
led to constant assertions and Contradictions regarding the gnivi'y of his condition. The Chronicle states that he
greatly overtaxed himself at the celebration in honor of ''is 7"'h birthday in
Birmingham, with the result that he
lost his memory completely. The past i
became a blank to him and he could not
remember what had taken place even a
few hours before, and although his oth-'
er faculties were and are uninjured, his
memory is gone.
Education BUI Thrown Ont.
The Education Bill has received its
death-blow in the House of Lords. Both
sides spent several days last week in
practically incessant conferences, with
the object of discovering an acceptable
compromise, but the opposition found
itself unable to accept the concessions
offered by the government. These were
presented by the Lord President of the
Council, Lord Crewe, but Lord Lansd-
owne, in behalf of the opposition, refused the proffered olive branch, aud moved
that the Lords report their amendments
to the Bill. This was adopted by 132 to
'ii votes and the Education Kill was thus
killed.
The Education Bill was buried by Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman in the
House of Commons on Thursday last.
Afler a speech defending the action of
the Lower House in rejecting the House
of Lords' amendments and repudiating
the claihi tff the Peers that tlkty lUd the
right to lecture the Commons oh the
subject, the premier announced that the
government had decided to withdraw
the iin-UMjre.
'amine la Hahota.
Following the reports of fuel famine
in the northwest, come reports of a
shortage of food supplies. Railway
service has been interrupted by the cold

���V telegram last week from Ambrose,
N. I)., says that place is without coal
and provisions, and that twenty cars of
fuel and food must be taken there by
special train at once or great suffering
will result.

un national sentiment cannot fail to be
