AT DIAMOND VALE
RESULT OF THE DRILLING AT THi_
FORKS LAST YEAR.     .
Company Purchases the Wm Charter!.
Ranch.   Ideal Residential Site
Wurk on Buildings, etc , Is
Going Ahead
A very important real estate transaction took place last week when the late
William Charters'ranch, near the mouth
of the Coldwater, and adjoining Diamond
Vale, was sold by the executors toT. J.
Smith of Vancouver, on behalf of the
Diamond Vale Coal & Iron Mines, Limited.
The property was pre-empted by the
late Wm. Charters in 1868, and was
crown-granted to him a few years later.
Of the lots comprised in the estate, the
two most important are lots 121 and 167
which contain about 450 acres and which
are nnderlaid with ci al. From a ranching point of view the estate is an ideal
one, and is considered one of the best
in t'ie valley, and the Diamond Vale
Coal & Iron Mines, Ld. are to be congratulated on securing so excellent a
property, which will prove a valuable
addition to the holdings they already
have acquired in the vicinity.
With the work now going on at Diamond Vale coal mine this tine piece of
property will be necessary for the colliery buildings, and will also be found
necessary for the coke ovens, etc. lf
necessary, too, any portion of the land
can be utilised for townsite purposes, a
purpose for which it is well adapted, as,
being bench land, it will provide an excellent situation for residential sites,
and for such a purpose is unexcelled in
any part of the valley.
With the progress which is being
made with development work in this
part of Nicola valley, it can be easily
IM- that in securing this land the com-
ps ly did a good stroke of business that
will materially benefit them financially.
At the Diamond Vale mine the work
of completing the construction of the
necessary houses, offices, elc, is going
steadily on, and the plant for operating
the machinery Ufttting well in place.
During the past week a dam has been
put in to catch the logs which will be run
down the river, the company having
several million feet now ready for the
run, all of which have been taken from
the timber limitsowned by the oompany.
The logs will then be on the ground in
readiness for the sawmill which will be
in running order very shortly.
Owing to trouble with water the work
of sinking the shaft was stopped for a
short period, but B. P. Little, M.E., C.
E., the assistant manager of lhe company, has things now in such a shape
lhat work will again be resumed next
week.
In connection with the drilling operations carried on last year at Diamond
Vale, the following paniculars of the
two bore-holes are taken from the annual report of the company:���
Bore No. 7���This was started October
Uth, 1906, and completed to a depth nf
778 ft. on November 23rd. Bedrock
was reached at a depth of 150 fet. from
the surface, the overburden being sai.d
and gravel wash. The bedrock cotes
show a dip of about 27 deg. or practically the same as the outcrops on I he
.-.outh side of the river, and 1900 ft.
from the site of the bore.
Coal was found as follows:-At 536
ft. from surface 44 in. clean, bright
coal. At 764 ft. frnm surface 49 in.
mostly clean and bright.
The upper seam was hitherto unknown
and must outcrop under the wash between No. 7 boie and the old No. 1
bore. This is better illustrated in the
sectional drawing attached.   The lower
seam is the Rat Hole seam, discovered
in old No. 1 bore, and outcropping on
the hillside south of the river.
Bore No. 8-This was located close to
the Coldwater river and about 18(10 ft.
from bnre No. 7. Bedrock was reached
at a depth of 21 ft.
Coal was encountered as follows: At
it) ft. 39 in. coal, mostly hard and
clean. At 222 ft. H in. coal, clean and
hard. At 293 feet from the surface the
Rat Hole seam was cut, but proved
rather dirty at this point, and shows
, only 18 in. of clean, hard coal.
1 Altogether the Rat Hole seam has
i been discovered in two open cuts, one
: tunnel aud three bore holts, and at all
points except the last it shows a thickness of 5 ft. to 8 ft., so it is probable
that No. 8 bore encountered it at a local pinch or "want."
The seam cut at 76 ft. appears to be
the one found ai 535 ft. in No. 7 bore,
while the seam at 222 ft. is a "stray"
one that we have not yet been able to
co-relate at other points.
The cores taken from the bores Nos.
7 and 8 were handed to Mr. J. O'SulIi-
van, F. C. S., of Vancouver, and show
the following analysis:���

Mr. O'Sullivan writes the company as
follows:
"Please find my analysis reports on
the four samples of coal submitted to
me by your T. J. Smith.
"1 have pleasure in staling for your
infiirmation liiai the cual is uiiuminiius,
of excellent i|iiality, and c.uipares favorably with die best Vancouver Island
and British Columbia Mainland product.
ll is a good i iking co.il and is therefore
very suitable for metallurgical as well
as for steaming and domestic purposes."
The coming year will see many
changes at Diamond Vale, for with the
work of opening up the coal mines, employing a large number of men, other
industries will open up. At present two
stores are being prepared to do business besides a butcher shop in course of
construction and as soon as town lots
are placed on the market there will be
a ready sale for them.   At the present

ill be made for a team fromMerrittto
come up and play Nicola, failing which
there will be a match between local
teams, viz., Married v. Single.
There will be a rilie shoot on Saturday, the 4th of May, full particulars of
which will appear later.

their names to the secretary, G. M.
Brash, Nicola.
St. John the Baptist Church
Tbe Easter vestry meeting was held

the new incumbent, Rev. James Thompson; H. S. Cleasby, H. D. Grecn-Army-
tage, R. H. Winny, A. W. Strickland,
A. Goodison, Dr. Tutill and H. L. Roberts.
Reports of various committies, including the financial statement, were received and adopted.
The church finances are in very satisfactory state and the Ladies' Guild
have in hand a sufficiently large amount
to warrant the building of a vicarage.
This work will be undertaken at an
early date, an energetic committee having the matter in charge.
The church officers for the ensuing
year are:
Lay delegates toSynod-H.D. Oreen-
Armytage, A. W. Strickland and II. J.
Cambie.
Church Wardens-H. S. Cleasby.Vicar's Warden; EL L Roberts, People's
Warden.
Secretary-treasurer, Dr. G. H. Tutill.
Sidesmen - H. D. Green-Armytage,
Farmers' Institute Meeting
A meeting of the local Farmers' Institute was held at Lower Nicola on
Wednesday evening. The report of the
delegate to the Central Farmers' Institute was received and adopted unanimously.
The meetings previously held at Nicola, Lower Nicola and Coutlee at which
Dr. Tolmie and W. C. McKillican gave
practical demonstrations of judging
stock, etc., were so successful that it
was decided to hid other meetings at
these places, arrangements for which
are accordingly being made.
It was unanimously decided to ask the
present secretary, S. J. Solomon, to retain office till the end of the year. The
secretary was instructed to obtain information re cattle guards on the railway, as those at present in use are
of no avail to prevent cattle from straying on the track. The meeting was entirely unanimous in the opinion that the
present guards are totally ineffective,
and that steps should be taken to remedy the matter.

BRAKEMAN HAS A CLOS- CALL IN
NIOOLA YARDS.
Eld Woods Caught Between Two Cars
on Sharp Curve  Last Kridsy.-
(ieueral Booth Talks About
Tainted Money.
Brakeman Ed. Woods had about as
close a call for his life in the C. P. R.
yards on Friday last as anyone could
well have.
Woods was endeavoring to make a
difficult coupling on a sharp curve on
the Y when he was caught between the
cars. Ordinarily there is a apace of
some twenty inches between two coupled cars, but on the i.iside of the sharp
Y curve this space would be reduced to
about three inches, and to succeed in
making a coupling under such conditions
is a hard matter. Woods, judging the
distance between the cars, gave the
engineer the "stop" signal, and, stepping over the rail, jerked the coupling
rod into position. He then tried to
jump into clear, but the cars were now
too close together and he was pinned
between them. Fortunately one arm
was free and he had the presence of
mind to wave the go-ahead signal. Had
the engine continued to back the brake-
man would have been instantly crushed
to death. However, the engine-driver
immediately pulled ahead and Woods,
on being released, collapsed and rolled
down the bank. He was carried into
the station, where Dr. Tutill found him
suffering from painful injuries to the
chest and ribs.
Mr. Woods was removed to a room
in the hotel, and his injuries have been
healing very rapidly the past few days.
He is now able to get out and around,
and admits that he is extremely lucky
to be alive.
A. Jackson passed through Nicola on
Wednesday with the first lot of goods
for his new store at Merritt.
Miss E. Woodward returned to Lower
Nicola on Monday after conducting the
school in the absence of Miss Robson.
Dr. Burris, of Kamloops, paid a professional visit to Nicola on Monday, returning to Kamloops on the afternoon
train.
B. P. Little, M. E., C. E., assistant
manager of the Diamond Vale Coal &
Iron Mines, Ld., paid a business visit to

It is expected T. R. Hardiman will be

General Booth on Tainted Money.
General Booth has, at the age of 77,
completed the first stage of his world
tour. After a rough passage of nearly
ten days, the Minneapolis, with the vet-
em Salvation Army leader aboard, arrived at New York.
Among the many American Press men
who met him was one who asked him
if he would have any qualms about taking what is called in America tainted
money for the promotion of his plans.
"Whose money, for example?" asked
the General.
"Well," said the American reporter,
"how about the oil king, John D. Rockefeller?"
The evangelist thought for a moment
and then replied: "Yes, I think I
would take even Rockefeller's money,
lf it is tainted, I would rely upon the
tears nf widows and orphans to wash
away the stain.
time there are many applications to secure building sites. The railway company will during the summer erect a
I station, put in side tracks, and Diamond
j Vale will be the busiest point in Nieola
I valley.
i A request has been made to the post-
office department for an office to be established, and the petitioners have been
notified that their request would be at-
| tended to, and it is likely that in l few
weeks' time the office will be opened
for the transaction of postoffice business.
Newton Grange ranch, the property
of B. Bonthrone of Vancouver, which

Owinj to our increased business during the last year, I have decided to move to
ERRITT
where I can be more centrally located to meet the wants of my customers and to avoid packing
and carting to the new premises I am going to offer my entire stock AT COST. You will find a
full and complete line of
Groceries, Dry Goods,
Gents' Furnishings, Hardware,
Drugs, Stationery, Etc.
This is one chance in a life-time and certainly should not be overlooked.
SPRING HOUSE-aEANING COMING ON
We have a large line of Carpets, Rugs, Linoleums, Oil Cloths, Wall Papers and Window Blinds
Remember:  Everything at Cost!
and many lines LESS THAN COST.    This sale will be for CASH ONLY and will commence on
MONDAY, APRIL FIRST,
and continue for three weeks only.   After this time the store at Lower Nicola will be closed and
our new store will be opened with a NEW and COMPLETE STOCK at Merritt.
