DIAMOND VALE PROSPECTS.
W. E. Duncan, a mining and mechanical engineer of Cardiff, Wales,
has just completed an exhaustive examination of the coal mine and coal areas
of the Diamond Vale Coal & Iron Mines
Ld., at Merritt, in the Nicola Valley.
He was entrusted by the company
with the performance _pf this commission. Mr. Duncan is a well known expert and his services are in great demand for the reporting on the economical equipment and development of coal
mining propositions. He left for Ottawa after a brief visit to this city, says
the Vancouver Province.
"I have no hesitation in stating that
the Diamond Vale owns coal areas that
with further development will be large
coal producers," said he. "An excellent quality of 'fatty' bituminous coal is
now being extracted from a five foot
seam. Its occurrence under such favorable conditions agreeably surprises
me. Two other workable seams have
already been located, and between them
there is a mile and a half of unexplored
ground in the heart of the coal basin
and which, according to an analogy,
should contain other seams, I see no
reason why the company should not
maintain a large output which will find
a profitable market on the coast and
east to a point beyond Revelstoke. Besides its 2067 acres in the Nicola Valley
the company owns 12,000 acres of coal
lands in Quiichena basin with nine
seams of coal, aggregating a total
thickness of fifty feet, but whose development has not yet been undertaken."

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Conservative party, by
the selection of Martin Burrell
as their standard bearer for
Yale-Cariboo district, have
made a wise choice. Mr. Burrell is well known to the electors having made an exceptionally good showing at the
at the last election, and had the
polling day been the same as
the general election, would
without a doubt have been the
successful candidate. The impression he made at that time
has not died out, but the good
opinion of him has been increased until from all parts
the word comes that he is
a winner. As a speaker Mr.
Burr��ll is without a peer, and
from his intimate knowledge of
the district and its requirements will make a valuable
member of parliament. The
province in many respects is in
its infancy, and with men like
Mr. Burrell we need have no
fear that its interests will be
looked alter for its good. Mr.
Burrell has no doubt made a
considerable sacrifice by entering the field, but being the
right man, the persuasion of
his many friends, and a unani
mous nomination he bowed to
the will of the people who
shall elect him.
There are many Canadians
who think and talk so much of
Great Britain's duty to Ganada
that they overlook Canada's
duty to Great Britain. It is
well to beor in mind that the
most hopeless sort of Little
Englander, who thinks that
the self-governing colonies are
a nusiance, does actually pay
his share year by year towards
the maintenance oi the British
navy, which is the only security
not only of the existence of the
empire, but also of the preservation of Canadian liberties.���
" Canada-"
The program for this year's
work in the surveying of opt
lying sections of the province
has been practically completed.
More of this will be done during the forthcoming summer
than has been attempted heretofore, it being the intention
of the provincial government
to obtain accurate and official
knowledge of the different promising agricultural valleys to
the north, as far as possible, in
order that settlers may be introduced on a satisfactory bas
is.
