Alexander  Faulds Will  Arrive   This
Week and Superintend Work In
C mnectlon With the Deva-
lopmeut of Property,
Alexander Faulds, M E. Inat. M. E.,
haa been engaged as superintendent and
mine manager of the Nicola Valley Coal
& Coke Company, Ltd., and Commences
hia duties at nne:. Mr. Faulda is a colliery manager of a very wide experience. He is a certificated colliery manager of Great Britain, and was the originator in 1878, and is yet a member, of
the Mining Institute of Scotland, and ii
also consulting engineer of several Pacific coast mines. He was selected by the
Government to inquire into the cause of
the explosion at Fernie, ti. C, in 190-1.
Speaking of the Nicola Valley Coal &
Coke Company's property at Coutlee,
B. C. to a Province reporter he said:
"The portal and outcrop of the Nicola
Valley Coal & Coke Company's Jewel
aeam is the key of ihe situation of the
entire Nicola Valley coal basin, and it
is from this seam that coal w.ii be mined ready for an assured mar.tei three
months from now."
"Then you intend to start operations
at once?" he was asked.
"Yes, F. H. Lana and myself
will leave for Coutlee next week to begin operations. We shall first erect
buildings and bunkers. K. Marpole of
the C. P. It. has promised to build the
spur, about half a mile, as soon us we
have five hundrad io a thojsind ions of
coal in the bunkera. We intend to cut
out sections of the different seam.., one
of which is seventeen l'eet thick, to send
down here to be puton exhibition. Later on we shall start building coke ovens
and we hope to be sending large quantities of coal down the Nicola branch before next fall."
Resigns as County Court Judge.
Friends of the Hon. C. F. Cornwall
will regret to learn that he has beeVi
compelled to send in his resignation of
the position which he nas held so long
as judge of the County Court of Cari Iwo.
Judical duiiea in a district so large and
in which travelling means hard work
have proved to heavy for Judge Cornwall, thence the action, ln two capacities as a public man Mr. Cornwall has
won ther espeet witn all in wtiom he
came in contact. Lieutenant Governor
of British Columbia from 1881 to 1887
and County Court Judge from 1889 until
1906 is a long record and it has been
worthily held.

���very Probability of a  New  Bridge

A public meeting to receive the report of the delegation who recently interviewed the governmenl with regard
to the proposed bridge across tne river
was held in Pooley's Hall on Friday
afternoon at 5 o'clock. H. H. Matthews
acted as chairman. The minutes of the
last public meeting at which the delegates received instructions were read and
on the motion of A. E. Howse seconded
by R. A. Fraser, adopted. A. E. Howse
then reported that the delegates met
Hon. R. Mc Bride, Hon. F. J. Fulton,
and Hon. R. F. Green at Victoria and
i placed the matter of a new bridge be-
I fore them. The ministers admitted the
| necessity for the bridge and would further in every way the wishes of Nicola
residents by the construction of abridge
at the earliest possible moment. They
would have an engineer sent in at once
to report on the matter and the people
of Nicola could rest assured that they
wouid do all in their power to further
the scheme and push it to completion.
A. W. Strickland said that the day after the interview he had seen Hon. R.
F. Green personally and Mr. Green had
assured him that the government would
push the matter through and an engineer to report on the scheme might be
expected in Nicola very shorlty. The

all in his power to further the scheme,
and any technical inlormation which he
could give was al the disposal of the

possible way to further the construction
of the bridge at as early a date as possible. A. R. Carrington moved, seconded by 0. Murray thai the report of the
delegation be adopted and the best
thanks of the meeting be accorded lhe
delegates lor their successiul work.
The motion was unanimously agreeu lo.
Alter the bridge question a discussion
took place in reference to a report in
circulation in provincial papers that Nic-
dia was a likely place iur the sanitarium,
lhe reports were uiscredited and ai-
tnough no motion was inaue tne leeling
of ihe meeting was against the erect-
on of a sanitarium in ..i.ola.

Falls Beneath Train Which Runs Oaor
Hln Arm
A serous and almost fatal accident
happened at Coutlee on Friday morning
last when Arthur W. Richardson conductor of the gravel train came near
losing his life but escaped with the loss
of his left arm. Conductor Richardson
noticing the air hose between a couple
of the cars leaking, stepped in between
the slowly moving cars to remedy it and
was walking along the ties in a stooping
position when one of his feet got caught
in the guard rail at the frog. Realizing
in an instant that it would mean death,
Richardson threw himself, falling between the rails, but in falling his left
arm crossed the rail and the wheels passed over it between the shoulder and
elbow crushing it so that amputation
was necessary. His foot was also in
jured by being caught in the rails.
The train was immediately brought to
a siand still and the injured man taken
from beneath the cars and removed to
Coutlee Hotel, where Dr. Ker and Dr.
Tutill were in attendance and did what
they could to relieve the suiferer.
In the afternoon Ur. Ker by special
train brought tne injured man to Nicola
and the same evening with Dr. Tutill
amputated the arm at the shoulder.
Mr. Richardson is at the residence of
Dr. Tutill and with the medical men is
being looked after by his wife wu. arrived a few days after ihe accident.
He i�� now resting easily and will in
the course of a few weeks be around
again minus an arm but with his life
During the tim.' he was under the
wheels and car and until the operation
he never lost consciousness and has
shown nerve and grit throughout.
Conductor Richardson is well known
along the main line where he was employed for some time and during tlie
past year has worked on the Nicola
branch, and his many friends will be
sorry to learn of Ins accident ani wish
him a speedy recovery.
Uuring the construction of the Nicola
branch this is lirst the train accident

when the work of the present contractors is on the eve of completion.

of 4,000 feet, is the number five shaft'
of the same company. This ranks as
the second deepest vertical shaft on the
globe, its measurement being 5,080 feet
from the collar to the bottom level.
Second only to these great opening.
| is the Red Jack -t shaft of the Calumet
and Hecla C mp .ny, which is down 4.
900 feet, and im whicn the copper lode
was not encountered until a depth of
3,300 ft had been attained.
The deepest incline shaft in the world
is the No. 4 of the Calumet and Hecla.
This shaft itself, from the collar to
the lowest level, is sunk on the plane of
the lode for a distance of 8,100 feet
while from a drift at the bottom a
winze extends downward 190 feet to the
boundry of the property, giving a meas
' urement of 8,290 feet from the surface. Strike at Oreenwood.

ago, in the r.i^n of Hi Hung,  a bank
failed.   Hi Hung had the failure investigated and to his indignation  found it
hail been due to reckless and shady conduct on the part of the directorsand the
president. Hi Hung at once issued   an
edict that the next time a bank failed
tht heads of its president and directors
were to be cut off.    This edict which
has  never  been  revoked,  has made
China's banking institutions the safest
in the world.
