SHIP COAL IN MAY
SIX FOOT SEAM WILL BE OPENED
BY THAT TIME.
Diamond Vale Company Making Rapid
Progress With Shaft Sinking.
Erecting Sawmill Plant
Assays of Coal
Coal from the Nicola valley will be
produced in abundance during the coming summer, and much of it should be
available for domestic use in Vanconver
next winter, says the Mews-Advertiser.
T. J. Smith, of the Diamond Vale Iron
& Coal Mines, Ltd., has returned tothe
coast from a trip to the company's
property at Coutlee, and states that
good progress is being made with sinking the shaft. Between 50 and 75 men
are at work, and the hole will go down
at the rate of nearly one hundred feet
per month.
The sawmill machinery has arrived on
the ground at the Forks and is being
rapidly set up for operation. The plant
is a large one and when in working order lumber will soon be plentiful for
the construction of the various mine
buildings.
J. 0. Sullivan, assayer, of Vancouver,
has just completed the assaying of a
number of specimens of the Diamond
Vale coal, and in submitting his report
states that the product is of excellent
bituminous quality and compares favorably with the best on Vancouver Island
or the mainland. It is also a gook coking coal.
The first Simple, from a six-foot
seam, went: moisture, 2.0 per cent;
volatile combustible matter, 37.7. per
cent; fixed carbon, 54 per cent; ash, 5.2
per cent; sulphur, 0.3 per cent; coke,
59 per cent.
Second sample, from a seam four feet
to six feet in width: moisture, 2.5 per
cent; volatile combustible matter, 36.4
per cent; fixed carbon, 50.2 per cent;
ash, 10.5 per cent; sulphur, 0.4 per
cent; coke 30.9 per cent.
Third sample, from a seam of four
feet clean coal: moisture, 2.1 per cent;
volatile combustible matter, 37.3 per
cent; fixed carbon, 54.4 per cent; ash,
6.0 per cent; sulphur, 0.2 per cent; coke,
60.5 per cent
Fourth sample, from a seam of six
feet clean coal: moisture, 2.3 per cent;
volatile combuutible matter, 38.6 per
cent; fixed carbon, 50.3 per cent; ash,
8.5 per cent; sulphur, 0.3 per cent;
coke, 58.8 per cent.
Mr. Smith states that this last sample was taken from a seam but 70 feet
deep, the shaft to which is now being
sunk.
It is expected that shipments will be
made from this last vein in May of the
present year.
The Circulation of a Blander.
During the late election campaign the
I Liberal candidate, on more than one
' occasion, made reference to the sad fatality or the new Ashcroft bridge, now
| under construction, and stated that the
1 accident was due to the negligence of
those in charge.
The Vancouver World, in its haste
to get the muck rake to work again,
has taken this matter up and quotes a
"Mr. Meyer" who talks as an eye witness of the accident,
As a proof that "Mr. Meyer" must
have been an eye witness, the following
statement is a sample: "After the
scow had got into the stream it was
swung by the current and struck the
piles."
Now, anyone who was an eye witness
of the scene knows that the accident
was due to the strong wind blowing up
stream with unusual force, and it was
primarily due to this that the accident
occurred.
Other statements made by "Mr.
Meyer" to a World reporter are on a
par with the above, and the statement
that men who were engaged on the
work were discharged because they
were Liberals is untrue. It is unfortunate that Mr. Henderson's name has
been coupled with this interview in the
World, more especially after his remarks on the accident made at some of
his meetings.
The idea of making political capital
out of the accident was nauseating,even
to Mr. Henderson's supporters, and,
although the Nicola Herald holds no
brief for those in charge of the construction on the bridge, yet, in all fairness, it decidedly objects to the charge
of criminal negligence being made
against them. The charges which have
been made are very grave, and, if true,
should receive the closest investigation.
One is forced, however, to believe that
the charges are made not from any
public-spirited motive, but that personal animosity is at the bottom of the
slanderous statements referred to.

FURTHER CONSTRUCTION  MAY BE
EXPECTED THIS YEAR.
The Meanest Man.
A man may use a wart on the back
of his neck for a collar button; ride on
tb.e back coach of a railroad train to
save interest on his money till the conductor gets around; stop his watch at
night to save wear and tare; leave his
'i' or 't' without a dot or cross to save
ink; pasture his mother's grave to save
hay; but a man of this sort is a gentleman and a scholar compared to the fellow that will take a newspaper two or
three years and when asked to pay for
it puts it into the postoffice and has it
marked "refused."
Hudson Bay Railroad.
In the Dominion house last week in a
discussion of the question of a railway
to Hudson Bay, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
made an important announcement on
the subject.
After drawing attention to the congestion of traffic on the railways, which
he believed the existing companies were
making great efforts to meet, he stated
that beyond increase of rolling stock,
what was needed was an outlet to the
sea, which he believed to be found on
Hudson Bay.
Sir Wilfrid drew attention to the new
country which would be opened up by
the national transcontinental railway,
and this country was now known to be
rich in lnmbering, mineral and agricultural resources.
He drew attention to the fact that
there had been for some time on the
statute book a provision that a subsidy
of 12,000 acres of land per mile would
be given in aid of the construction of a
Hudson Bay railway. Up to date no
one had been willing to take up that
subsidy and he stated that if this was
not sufficient to procure the construction of such a railway, for his part he
thought the time had come when a new
effort should be made and other means
provided for building it.
He said the subject was engaging the
attention of the government and he
hoped before the end of the session he
would have something definite to lay
before the house.

O. P R. Officials Make a Tour of Inspection This Week.  Trl Wetkly
Service Expected to Start
Very Soon.
Now that spring is approaching, one
of the main questions of interest to the
residents of Nicola valley is that of
railroad construction.
While the matter of furtherconstruc-
tion on the present branch line from
Spences Bridge seems to be in abeyance, it may be taken for certain that
ere the close of th&year, a fair amount
of work will be done, continuing the line
to the Similkameen.
To ihe average layman, unacquainted
with the technicalities of railroad construction, it may seem an easy matter
to lay out a railroad, but the question of
easy gradients and solid roadbeds has
become now of such paramount importance that the railroad engineer has
many days of worry and anxiety before
he can satisfy himself that he has got
the best possible location.
Perhaps the most difficult part of the
present railroad, is now to construct,
namely from Nicola to Aspen Grove.
There is not the slightest doubt now
that construction on this portion of the
road will be resumed this year, but
just how soon it may be gone on with
is known only to a few officials of the
C. P. R.
The management of the C. P. R. are
anxious to see this line extended on.and
it may be taken as a certainty that if
the road is to be continued this year
construction will start about the beginning of May.
An official inspection of the present
line to Nicola v/as made by H. J. Cambie, superintending engineer of the Pacific division of the C. P. R. this week.
R. Marpole, J. Busteed and otherefacials will make a visit of inspection over
the line next week and formally take
over the new line.
The train to be run on the Nicola line
has now been made up and is ready for
operations and will probably stirton its
tri-weekly run immediately after the
official visit of inspection.
J ridging from a run over the road, the
line is in excellent condition and provides very smooth traveling, and reflects the highest credit on the contractors, Loss, Maedonell & Co.
The question of the location line of
the V., V. and E. remains still an open
one. Rumors as to the line going dowr
the Skagit have been rife for some time
but there has been no official confirmation of this as yet, and there are just
as good grounds for stating that the
line will go through Hope as originally
staked some time ago. One thing is
certain, a spur will be constructed down
the Coldwater to the coal mines around
Coutlee and a connection will thus bs
made, ;illowing Nicola coal to be shipped
into the boundary country.
It see.n8 therefore that Nicola valley
will soon be in a most enviable position
so far as regards railroad transportation, anc1 the opening up of her varied
mineral and agricultural resources will
follow as a natural result.
Oood Advice.
On a visit to Nanaimo lately, Assistant Superintendent Beasley gave the
following good advice to the residents
there:
"One thing that Nanaimo people will
do well to guard against," said Mr.
Beasley, "is anything in the nature of a
false boom. Just as sure as you raise
prices beyond a reasonable mark you
will scare away the people whom you
want here, the permanent settlers in
the district and city. Avoid as much as
possible what is called a real estate
boom and look only towards those things
that tend towards permanency and substantial development.

er   Coal is Shipped.
i Mr. Carter-Cotton, at a meeting on
Tuesday of the finance committee of
the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia,
stated that he had received a letter from
Dr. Tory, who is in Montreal, to the
effect that Andrew Carnegie has given
a donation of $50,000 to the building fund
of the McGill University College of
British Columbia, conditional on a similar amount being raised within a certain
period.
The gift from Mr. Carnegie makes a
substantial foundation for the fund of
$100,000,whichi8the sum that the Board
of management of the college considers
should be raised before the actual work
of construction is undertaken.

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Barbour, late of
Edmonton, arrived in town Tuesday and
have taken over the management of
the Driard hotel.
The weather during the past week has
been so balmy and spring-like as to jus-
,ify the adaptation of the term "banana
belt" to this valley.
J. T. Edwards is this week superintending the blowing out of the dam on
the river, so as to allow a free passage
for fish up the stream.
An Unwarranted Attack.
It is generally admited that the abuse
showered upon Sir Alexander Swettenham, Governor of Jamaica, for his
treatment of Admiral Davis of the U.
S. navy was entirely unjustified. The
facts of the matter are simply that the
American officer, over-zealous and domineering, insisted upon forcing unnecessary assistance upon the British governor. The latter, a most efficient official
and one of the best colonial governors
in the service, was quite capable of
handling the situation. He, therefore,
very properly and effectually snubbed
the officious Yankee.-Vernon News.
Court of Appeal.
The creation of a permanent Court of
Appeal by the provincial legislature
early in the ensuing session is almost
certain.
As the creation of this court is the
sole privilege and right of the province,
although the appointments are made at
Ottawa, it is very probable that the
government will annex thereto a condition that one of its nominees be appointed to this court of three.
The name of Charles Wilson, K. C,
has been talked of for this position, and
Justice Irving will probably be elevated
to the chief justiceship of the court.

The Colonial Conference.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Sir Frederick
Borden have booked their passages by
the Empress of Brittain, which sails
from St. John, N. B. on April 5. They
go to attend the colonial conference.
Messrs. Fielding, Brodeur and Paterson
will also attend, but will wait until the
close of the present session.
A petition has been got up and is being signed by the business men and residents of the district asking for increased
mail facilities between Nicola and
rrinceton.
The remains of Mrs. Hyatt were laid
to rest in the Lower Nicola cemetery
last Thursday. Rev. T. H. Wright
conducted the obsequies, and a large
number of friends and relatives attended the funeral.
Mrs. T. Hunter's condition is steadily
improving and there is now a strong
hope of her recovery. She passed a
quiet night and the medical attendants
were much encouraged this morning.
Arrangements are being made for
shipping a carload of ore from the Aberdeen group of mineral claims on Ten
Mile Creek.
Joseph Graham, of Coutlee, who has
the matter in hand, and who has done
much to develop the property in question reports very good showings. If the
results are satisfactory a further shipment will probably be made, and thus
furnish a reliable index of the value of
the ore from this property.
Nicola Ooal Por Vancouver.
A car of excellent coal was seen on
the railway track near Coutlee yesterday. On inquiry, it was ascertained
that its destination is Vancouver. This
is the first car shipped to the coast by
the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co., (locally known as the Garische Green).
The coal is evidently a first class article
and will no doubt compete successfully
with the best product already on the
market. The shipment will be made
today. THE NICOLA HERALD

Nicola, B. C, February 28,1907.
What the little city of Nicola
needs most just at the present time
is combined and aggressive action
on the part of her business men and
others interested in her welfare in
placing the town as much as pOMi-
ble in the limelight of public notice.
The game of push and progress is
being played to the limit throughout the entire province at this time
--and opportunely so. This is just
the dawn of an era of immense development and prosperity in British
Columbia. Opportunity is knocking with brass knuckles at the door
of every district that has any goods
to deliver, and few communities
there be who are not extending the
glad hand to that elusive dame.
All over the province we see cities,
towns and hamlets, each in their
own way, pushing to the van and
thoroughly acquainting the general
public with their respective advantages in the field of commerce. Are
we in Nicola not just a little lax in
this respect? To hear some people
talk one would almost think that
the coal mines in the vicinity of
Coutlee were about the only resources this district lias to offer.
This is a mistake. Great though
the coal and other mineral deposits
have been shown to be in the Nicola
valley, they are only a part of our
natural wealth. There are untold
possibilities for the future in the
lines of fruit growing, general farming and other profitable industries.
It is up to us to advertise the fact.
At present Nicola is the eliief town
in the valley, but it does not appear
that we are doing all we can to
stimulate its growth and attract attention to our embryo metropolis.
Success is a hard taskmaster, and
if we wish to make this town a success from a commercial standpoint
we must put forth our very best efforts with that object in view. To
do this, but one logical method presents itself, and that is by means of
united action. There are many
younger towns than Nicola in British Columbia���towns which started
out with fewer assets or prospects���
that have attained an enviable degree of success by the sheer pluck
and enterprise of their business men.
One of the first essentials to the upbuilding of a town is an energetic
board of trade or similar organization of representative men, where
important matters, which might
otherwise be lost sight of, could be
intelligently discussed and acted
upon, and where Hlggtltioa* and
new movements could be launched j
in a business-like maimer and result
ill the greatest food. To sit 'round
and look wise and sun ourselves in
the reflected prosperity of the prov-
ince generally is a bluff that might i
seem to work for a while, but when
the real dividend-paying time arrives there will be "nothingdoing."
Within the past five weeks no less
than twelve letters have been addressed to the management of this
paper asking for particulars regarding the district. These letters were
nearly all from farmers living in the
western States who were desirous of
settling in British Columbia. The
information sought was much and
varied, and while we did our best
to supply the same, it is in cases
like this where a live board of trade,
working  systematically, could do
inestimable good. An aggressive
business policy on the part of our
business men, reaching out for
everything within reach, encouraging all would-be comers, expending money when a two-fold return
is reasonably certain, it would seem
is one of the ways to best build up
la city. A town is what its people
make it.    It may slowly grow by
I tbe little accretions that accidentally fall within its Influence, or it e.in
lie pushed into rapid and vigorous
growth liy the aggressive activity
, of its business element. Kvery additional settler in the valley means
more population, more development, more money, more prosper
ity. The whole community is benefitted. Let us in Nicola get down
to cases and give this matter of
publicity and united effort our most
earnest consideration. It's a paying proposition; it's good business;
it costs nothing but a little energy,
a little snap, a little ginger.

S. J. BATK.
The young men of Nicola might
help themselves liberally to the
mustard witli very efficacious results. With the number of young
men residing here, it is surprising
that some sort of a social and gymnastic organization for the promotion of legitimate conviviality, sport
and pastime has not long since been
formed. The past winter has been
dull���very dull���especially to those
not blessed with the advantages of
home influences and comforts.
Things have been running along in
a monotonous groove. That is bad.
A groove is a bad thing to fall into
in any line of endeavor. Always
beware of the groove. To the normally constituted young man a
reasonable amount of relaxation
from the daily grind, in the shape
of sport and amusement, is just as
essential as is a rubber ring to a
teething baby or a powder-rag to a
lady's toilet. With a little lively
enthusiasm displayed and a slight
mercenary touch it is surprising
what could be accomplished in a
short time in the way of establishing a combined club and gymnasium
fully adequate to the requirements
of the village and immediate vicinity. There is no doubt that such
a movement would be heartily endorsed and materially assisted by
the business men. Besides its extreme local value, such an institution is one of tlie best advertisements a small town can have. It
denotes laudable public spirit and a
desire ou the part of the young men
to promote the interests of clean,
healthy sport, which has its place
as firmly established in the world
today as has science or art. It is
to be hoped some life-sized effort
will be made in the near future to
accomplish something tangible
along the lines referred to. The
athktk association will soon be
blossoming out for the coning season, and will doubtless have some
food stunts mi the boards for the
summer months. Through this association a baseball, football or lacrosse team should be organized at
once. There is plenty of good material at hand, and, with the advantage of the train service soon to
be operated, some exciting riiatches
could be made with outside towns.
