Cut Off in Redistribution
Ottawa, Mar. 16:���A proposed
British Columbia redistribution
has been prepared, and the map
is now before the redistribution
committee. While there may be
some minor changes the redistribution is likely to follow the
proposed lines.
The present constituency of
Kootenay will be divided into
East and West Kootenay. East
Kootenay will comprise the provincial ridings of Cranbrook,
Fernie and Columbia. West
Kootenay will comprise the ridings of Nelson City, Ymir, Rossland City, Slocan, Kaslo and Revelstoke.
The present New Westminster
riding will also be divided. One
will be called New Westminster,
and will comprise the provincial
constituency of New Westminster City and Delta, and all that
portion of the provincial electoral
district of Richmond lying south
of Burrard Inlet, excepting the
Municipality of Vancouver City,
South Vancouver and Point Grey.
The electoral district of New
Westminster district will be composed of the ridings of Dewdney
and Chilli wack, and all that portion of the provincial electoral
district of Yale adjoining the
provincial electoral districts
of Chilliwack and Dewdney,
bounded by a line commencing at
the southeast corner of the provincial electoral district of Chill-
wack and thence along the international boundary of the provincial electoral district of Similkameen, thence northerly, following said last mentioned boundary
to the northeast corner of said
provincial electoral district of
Similkameen, thence in a straight
line northerly to a point on the
North bank of the Fraser river,
one mile east of the village of
Yale, thence following a straight
line to the northeast corner of
the provincial electoral district
of Dewdney.
Vancouver will have two members elected at large. There will
be a Vancouver South riding, consisting of the municipalities of
South Vancouver andPointGrey.
Victoria City riding will remain
practically as it is today. Nanaimo also will be about the
same, consisting of the local
ridings of Cowichan, Esquimalt,
NanaimoCity, Newcastle, Saanich
and the Islands.
A seat called Skeena will be
comprised of the local ridings of
Skeena and Atlin. Yale-Cariboo
will be divided into two seats,
though they are not yet named.
One will consist of the local ridings
of Cariboo, Lillooet, Kamloops
and Yale, excepting that portion
of Yale contained in the electoral
district of New Westminster, as
the same is above described, and
including the whole city and district municipality of Salmon Arm.
The other will consist of the
Getting Ready For
Baseball Season
A meeting of Hazelton Athletic
Association was held on Wednesday evening, to make preliminary
arrangements for the coming
baseball season. President MacCormick gave a very satisfactory
report of the progress made by
the executive committee in raising funds for the season. About
$300 are still required to wipe out
last season's deficit and pay
ground rent for this year, and
make necessary improvements.
Part of this amount has already
been subscribed, and it is thought
there will be no difficulty in raising the amount within a few
days. A finance committee consisting of James Turnbull, H. C.
Kinghorn, T. W. Brewer, and
Ii. E. Allen has undertaken the
task of obtaining funds. All
subscriptions will be acknowledged in The Miner.
Prospects for a speedy baseball team are bright. A majority
of last year's champion nine is
expected to be in the line-up,
and competing teams will have
to go some to capture the Mc-
Clary cup.
TRADE N11W INCREASING
Ottawa, Mar. 20:���Trade reports for the fiscal year show
that Canada's total trade for the
last eleven months exceeded the
billion mark by twenty million
dollars, giving an effective reply
to the Liberal cry of hard times.
The total for the corresponding
period of the preceding year was
$962,000,000.
BRITISH MINISTER

INTEREST TAKEN IN
UNDHOG COAL FIELDS
Projected Railway and Reported Deal on Property of B. C.
Anthracite Attract Attention���Engineer Tells of Prospects for New Field
Victoria, Mar. 16:���It is announced that Mr. D. A. Thomas,
the Welsh coal magnate, who is
coming to the Coast, has secured
options on the anthracite coal
lands controlled by the British
Columbia Anthracite Syndicate,
a company composed of Quebec
financiers. The amount of coal
on the territory controlled by
the company is estimated at
1,141,444,000 tons, and in addition the company possesses a
charter to build a railway from
the mouth of the Naas Riverinto
the Groundhog coal fields, a distance of 140 miles.
Nasoga Bay, a port for the
proposed railway, is said to be
admirably adapted for a coal distributing point, the harbor being
well protected and capable of
berthing large vessels. The estimated cost of building a railway
into the coal fields, equipping the
colliery, providing rolling stock,
buying coal-carrying ships and
general organization on a working basis, is $10,000,000.
That the advent of Mr. D. A,
Thomas, the prominent Welsh
mining magnate, into this country
has aroused a widespread interest, was amply testified, saysThe
Colonist, by Mr. Franklin Denton, a mining engineer of P'en-
sylvania, who has just completed
a brief tour of the northern section of British Columbia in the
interests of his connections.
Mr. Denton, who has been in
the country, carryi.ig on a quiet
inspection for several weeks, declares that from his observation
of actual mining conditions in
the Groundhog country there is
every possible justification for
the faith of Mr. Thomas, which
has found recent expression in
his application for a railway
charter to run from the mining
zone to tidewater.
"The fact of Mr. Thomas interesting himself in this section
of the country is very significant," said Mr. Denton, "and
you must not be at all surprised
if you find it creates as great an
impression in the United States
as elsewhere. Coal is one of
the most universal of necessities
at the present time, and the
country that has more than the
usual supply of it is bound in the
nature of things to earn a little
passing attention. From all
quarters there is reason to believe that in the northern districts of British Columbia there
is coal in large quantities and of
a nature peculiarly suited for
commercial use on a large scale.
What 1 mean is that there is anthracite, and to anyone who
knows anything about the coal
industry, nothing more need be
said on the subject."
Touching upon the proposal of
Mr. Thomas to construct a railway from the mining center to
the Coast, Mr. Denton expressed
the opinion that it would do much
toward the speedy development
of the properties. He also
thought that it would prove a
means to further discoveries of
profitable deposits not yet charted at all. The necessity for rail
connection appealed to him
strongly, and he paid a high
tribute to the Provincial government for its faith in prosecuting
this undertaking in the manner
that has been adopted.
"Railways are a necessity for
the development of practically
any industry nowadays," proceeded Mr. Denton, "and this is
doubly true in the case of coal
mines. With direct tail connection to the Coast, the whole northern country could be opened up
in a remarkably short space of
time. Of course, I am not overlooking the fact that much is
being done even now in this line.
The Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Pacific Great Eastern railways
will naturally contribute largely
to the development of this country, but at the same time there
is no gainsaying the extreme
value to the industry of a specially designed road such as that
which appears to occupy the
mind and attention of Mr. Thomas."
Speaking on the subject of coal
generally, Mr. Denton said that
the large interests were always
on the lookout for promising coal
deposits. No country could get
along without coal. He cited the
tremendous use of coal in war
vessels, as well as in the ordinary industrial develoqment, and
remarked, in regard to the former, that nothing represented so
powerful an asset in time of trouble as coal. This factor, he
thought, made it important that
British interests should see to it
that the coal of British Columbia
was exploited properly, and that
it was subjected to necessary
protection.
"What the development of another great coal industry would
achieve for British Columbia it
is impossible to suggest," said
Mr. Denton. "As things are
now there is no question but that
it would have a very considerable
effect upon the world at large,
for in a very short time it will be
possible to ship quite cheaply
from the coalfields of the Northern interior to practically any
part of the globe. The opening
of the Panama Canal will tend to
centralize this section of the
country as nothing else could do,
and, in addition to bringing it
appreciably nearer to Great Britain, it will bring it within easy
focus of places that are at present
out of sight, so to speak."
Mr. Denton also referred briefly to the significance of such natural assets from the national
point of view, and suggested
that the development of the coal
industry in the province might
carry some weight with the Admiralty in the consideration of
establishing a fleet unit on the
Pacific Coast."
Secretary Lane Says
U.S. Will Co-open
Washington, Mar. 16:-^ "I
conference with the committees
of the Senate and the House
have urged the feasibility of
such a railroad, and I believe the
Canadian Government is ready
to co-operate with us." Secretary Lane of the Department of
the Interior made this statement
when shown that of Premier
McBride of British Columbia suggesting co-operation between the
United States and Canada in the
construction of a railway to Alaska through the Pacific Coast
province. Mr. Lane believes
that the railway will be a great
tourist road, attracting attention
throughout the world.
"I have talked with and corresponded with Premier McBride
concerning this matter," continued the secretary, "and have
also had a satifactory conference
with Premier Borden of the
Dominion Government. I believe
it is possible for us to build
to the Alaskan boundary to
meet the Canadian road by the
time our neighbors are able to
come to us."
HOME RULE DIFFICULTY
London, Mar, 16:���The settlement of the home rule difficulty
is apparently little advanced by
the concessions to the Ulsterites.
The deadlock remains as immovable 'as before Mr. Asquith's
speech. Signers of the covenant
declare that nothing less than a
permanent exclusion of the Protestant counties of Ulster will
satisfy. The more radical element wants a total exclusion of
the province of Ulster.
Mr. Churchill, speaking at
Bradford, said these concessions
were the last the government
can and ought to make.
London, Mar. 20:���The shadow
of civil war lowers over the north
of Ireland. The men of Ulster
appear eager to fight and the atmosphere is electrical. Sir Edward Carson made a dramatic
entry into Belfast. He urges
calmness.
John Redmond has called off
the Sunday demonstration at
Londonderry.
It is reported that the government is preparing for the military
occupation of Ulster.
London, Mar. 20:���"It's an infamous lie!" yelled Sir Edward
Carson in the house of commons
when Joseph Devlin said he (Carson) was once a Home Ruler.
The latter was called to order by
the speaker.
Jtterson Takes Crew in to
Manson for Season's Woi k
on Kildare���Others Outfit
That big cleanups will be made
in the Manson Creek gold camp
this season is the expectation of
miners interested in that historic
district. George W. Otterson,
general managtr of the Kildare
Mines, Ltd., owners of the Slate
creek leases, arrived from the
coast Wednesday and left for the
scene of operations this morning,
accompanied by a crew of fifteen,
which will be augmented to
twenty-five as soon as actual
mining begins. Mr. Otterson
wears his usual million-dollar
smile, and is confident that the
season's operations will be highly
profitable for his company, which
is the largest concern operating
in the Omineca river district.
For years he has been boosting
for the district, and now that the
Kildare property is equipped
with necessary plant and all preliminary work is done, he looks
forward to a big production.
The company's ground, which
has all to be elevated, is from
38 to 40 feet deep, and prospects
well in coarse gold, averaging,
according to reports, $2.40 per
cubic yard, giving a handsome
margin of profit even with the
necessarily high cost of operation.
Work will be carried on night
and day throughout the season,
a 5000-tandlepower searchlight
being used at night.
Several other companies will
operate this season, as well as
many individual miners. Walter
Aiken, George Hauck, Ed. Kohse,
and Arthur and William Leverett,
all Hazelton men, will leave on
Monday to begin ground-sluicing
on their bench leases at Old Man-
son Town. They have good
ground, and expect big returns
for their season's work.
Huderle & Walker are expected
to leave about April 1, to resume
work on their property at the
new town of Manson.
Get on the Voters' List
Those who are qualified as
voters, hut who have not yet
registered, should see that their
names are placed on the list at
the May revision. Applications
will be received by J. S. Cline,
J. A. Matd >nald, and A. R. Macdonald. All applications should
be in next week.

The stalwart Canadianism and the broad-vlsioned politics of the
late Sir George Ross are well summed up in his last public utterance. His farewell message to the people of Canada is given in
his last words in the senate in concluding his speech on the address
in reply to the speech from the throne on January 22. The physical effort of that speech, delivered in an overheated chamber, had
something to do with the illness which immediately followed, and
which resulted in his death.    His last words were:
"Now, let us appl.v our energy to the great problems that lie before us. That is my politics, whether 1 am here or elsewhere.
Canada has lo confront tremendous problems. We are on the margin of a future which no one can predict. We have a country as
large as the continent of Europe. Lord Strathcona has predicted
that we will have twenty or thirty millions of a population within
the next ten years. We are the forerunners of a tremendous destiny, which should weigh on the minds of every one of us. lf a
navy is necessary for the defence of the empire, let us make a bill
to which both parties will agree. And, in whatever respect legislation is necessary for strengthening the institution of this country,
for assimilating our foreign population, for furnishing suitable
transposition, for deepening our harbors, for strengthening the
ties between us and the empire, for extending our commerce on
the seven seas, for standing as prominently as we ought to stand
before the nations of the world as a great commercial people,
thoroughly independent, leaning on no arm for assistance, not even
the arm of the empire, let us work out our destiny in our own way.
Let us stop quarrelling about matters of mere party difference and
let us join hands. Let there be no discord of race or religion.
The task is large enough to demand all the powers that we possess.
To that task, this senate, I hope, is willing to address itself, as is
the house of commons, or any political body in the Dominion of
Canada."
