with a gang of men getting thiua in shape
to install the power plant at Quilchena
Falls from which electricity will be generated to the mines to facilitate the
working of the plant. He expects shortly

On the Sovereign and Boomerag groups

up with very satisfactory results.
On the Big Mm group of claims, owned
C. J. Robinson and Win Ford of Kam

Probably few men know more about

by Canada than Dr. Ells, who ia now ia
Vancouver, says the World of Tueaday.
For 33 years Dr. Ells has heen connected

and during that time has acquired what
muat be an unsurpassed knowledge of the
rocks that bear up the land of the maple
and beaver.
Yesterday Dr. Ells saw a friend off to
Victoria. This friend was Dr. Pnole of
Nova Scotia, a gentleman who has specialized in coal measures. Dr. Poole is this

coal measures of Vancouver island.
Ells will leave for the Queen Charlotte
islands, where he will survey the coal
measures for the the geological department.
The geological department is showing
unusual activity in British Columbia this
summer, a fact that is directly connected
with an increase of $19,000 in the appropriation for this work. In addition to
the two coaat surveys there is one going
on in the Kootenay conntry in the neighborhood of Kosslsnd. In the west, out-
aide the province, are two parties working in the Yukon territory, one surveying
the coal measures in the Edmonton district, and still another working on the
eist Hank of the Rockies, between Banff
and the Crow's Nest, surveying the coal
measures of that district.
Dr. Ells stated that Dr. Bell, who has
been director of Dominion surveys since
the death of Dr. Dawson five years ago,
intends to visit \��ncouver to attend the
meeting of the British Columbia Mining
Association. On the way to the coast U
Ells and Dr. Poole visited the Nicida in
company with T. J. Smith, of this city.
Dr. Ells states that, contrary to an opin
ion sometimes heard, the Nicola coals
are all true coals. They are sometimes
alleged lo be lignites, but they answer
tie test of true soal inasmuch as they
c ike. No lignite will coke because it
contains too high a percentage of water.
The Saskatchewan ooals are lignites, but
the Nicola and Similkameen compares
very favorably with the coals of Vancouver island and the Crow's Nest. The two
eminent geologists visited the Quilchena,
Coldwater and Coal Gully coal fields in
the Nicola and Dr. Ells spoke very
highly of them. After finishing at the
Queen Charlotte islands, Dr. Ells will, if
the season is not too far advanced, make
a survey of the Nicola, Similkameen coal
fields.
Besides having managed N vs Scntia
coal mines, Dr, Pool was for some years
inspector of mines in that province. Dr.
Ells has worked with all the prominent
geologists Canada has produoed, Dr.
Logan and Dr. Dawson he knew well.
The reports of the two geologists who are
to thus survey the ohief British Columbia
islands and the Interior will be awaited
with much interest in the province.

The aim mi complete annihilation of
Rojestvensky's fleet by Togo has put the
Russians out of business and given some
demonstrations in naval warfare to keep
eiperts thinking. The Bailie fleet started
on its journey to wipe out the Japanese
in a similar manner as Goliath did with
David. But it reckoned not. The battle
has been anxiously awaited all over the
world, and whdn it was confidently expected that the Japanese would win, such
a victory was a surprise. With troubles
at home the revolutions will now be continued and the downfall of the Czar and
bia ministers cannot be averted. A down

will rise up and declare for freedom.
