about as expensive a piece of work as the

A Message From Our King.
The King has sent the following message to all the British colonies and de-
'•To My Beloved People  Beyond the
-Seas:—-    •      :
The countless messages of loyal sympathy that I have received from every
part of my dominions, overseas, testify to.
the universal grief in which the whole
empire now mourns the loss of my beloved mother.
In the welfare and prosperity of her
subjects, throughout Great Britaii
Queen ever evinced a heartfelt interest.
She saw with thankfulness the steady
progress which, under the wide extensio
of self government, they had made du;
ing her reign. She warmly appreciated
their unfailing loyalty to her throne and
person, and was proud to think of those
who so nobly fought and died for the
empire's cause in South Africa.
I have already declared that it would
be my constant endeavor to follow the
great example which has been bequeathed to me.
In these endeavors, I shall have con
fident trust in the devotion and sympathy of the people, and of their several
representative assemblies throughout my
vast colonial dominions. With such
loyal support, I will, with the blessing of
God, solomnlywork for the promotion
of the common welfare, and the security
of our great empire, over which I have
now been called to reign.
(Signed) EDWARD."

alone are getting to be a very large item. If
present plans for enlargement are carried out, as
they undoubtedly will be, there will be a greatly
increased demand from this source alone.
It is thus apparent that one of tbe burning
questions now in this part of the province is :
Will there be coal enough for immediate requirements ? In this connection it is quite opportune
that the coal fields of the Similkameen country
are now receiving attention. They are report-
to be as large or larger than those of East Kootenay, and capitalists are now taking hold of
these new black diamond deposits with the ev
dent intention of thoroughty exploiting them.
This fact is also undoubtedly stimulating the
building of the new railway from Midway to
the coast. One great inducement for the con
struction ofthe Crow's Nest railway was the
coal-beds, and the same thing west of here is no
small factor. Time will work out the coal and
coke problem, now such an important
the industrial development of southeast British
Columbia.—Phoenix Pioneer.

The B. C. On Thursday next, the Legis-
Leglslature lative Assembly of British Columbia will begin what will probably be the
most important session ever held by a provincial
government. Premier Dunsmuir and his cabinet have a hard task to face. What with a
number of important questions, the reconstruction of the cabinet, the formation of a progressive railroad policy, and the immense amount of
routine work to be gone through, Mr. Duns-
muir's path will not be strewn with roses for the
next two months. We would like to whisper a
few words of good advice in your ear Mr.
Premier, which might assist you through the
:a of the present session. Keep away
y politics, and simply keep in mind
[fare and building up of the province,
a weathercock ! Let your policy be a
decided one.    Decisive legislation is
what the people of the province want at the
present time. Steer clear of all the old party
associations with which you are surrounded and
give the people an original progressive policy.
Become a leader who will not be afraid to conduct tbe government on strictly business lines,
who will not be afraid when he finds a weak
spot in his administration to get rid of it, root
and branch. Give us good clean government
and the right minded people of British Columbia will extend you a hearty and unanimous
support.

R. R. Over the In our columns this week
Hope Summit we publish an excellent
article, dealing with the railroad policy of the
province generally, but more particularly with
the proposed Coast to Kootenay line. As this
railway will traverse the entire Similkameei
out the fact that the possibility of constructinj
a line over the Hope summit is by no means al
difficult a task as our contemporary would hav
one believe.
The rugged snow-capped peaks ofthe Cascade
range can exist only in the imagination of the
writer, as the summit of the old Hope-Sim-
ilkameen trail at an altitude of about 5300 feet
is entirely clear of snow for nearly six month!
in the year. For the past two years this trail
has been used as the principal route of travel to
the Pacific coast and as the total distance (65
miles) has been ridden several
mer between daylight and dark it cannot be
such a difficult feat of engineering to find a feasible grade for a railroad. In comparison, the
summit of the Columbia & Western line between Robson and Cascade presented more difficulties in the way of grade and heavy rock work
than would be encountered in the Hope pas;
route. Again the Great Northern switchback
route over the summit of the Cascade mountains presented engineering difficulties which
would make the negotiating of the Hope summit look easy by comparison. Another matter
to be taken into consideration is the fact that besides the passvia Hope trail there is known to
exist two much lower passes, viz, the Coque-
halla and Coldwater pass and the Coquehalla,
pass, the highest
Railroad Creek and Tularin
point in* either route being under 5000 feet.

WHAT THE EDITORS SAY
The completion of its proppsed line from the
Boundary district to the coast will cut 250 miles
off the Canadian Pacific's run from Montreal to
Vancouver—Nelson Tribune.
The Similkameen Star, of Princeton, is a
bright, well edited paper, and is doing much to
attract the attention of the investors to that favored region. The Star's 20th century production was a well gotten up number.—Journal.
A gentleman who has done the figuring asserts that there are 100,000,000 tons of black
diamonds in the Similkameen coal fields. Well
every ton can be turned to account, aad appearances indicate that the day is not far distant.

British Columbia seems to be fairly well before the public in London, Judging by a recent
issue of the Financial Times. Besides the quotations of British Columbia shares, there are
five other articles, some of them quite lengthy,
referring to-British Columbia affairs, including
a summary of British Columbia's mineral output and an editorial on the purchase of the C.P.
N. shares by the C. P. R. The fact that a large
financial paper in London should pay so much
attention to British Columbia affairs, proves that
this province is attracting a good deal of attention in the world's metropolis.—Colonist.

1/ ■—
f; this city, says the
John Dougli
Greenwood Times, who has been it
Toronto for several weeks past has beer
successful in placing with a strong syndicate an option on a.ooo acres of. practically undeveloped coal lands, situated
five miles north from Fairview. La
eceived telegraph
. Douglas that the
week Robert Wood r
information from M:
preliminaries for a deal had been arranged, and subj ect to a report by an  expert
of the syndicate, he felt certain the same
would go through.    On Saturday Mr.
Wood left by stage for Fairview where
he will meet the party sent out to examine the coal lands.    The 3,000 acres
are owned by John Douglas and Robert
Wood of this city; Mrs. Ida Thompson of
Beaverton, and J^C. McLjtgan^editor of
the World r>f ytincnnypr.   When seen by
Times representative, Mr. Wood corroborated the report that a deal was on, but
id he was unable to give full particulars
until after the examination of the prop
erty, which he anticipated would be quite
tisfactory to the Toronto people.
At the head of the purchasing, syndicate is E- B. Osier, a prominent financial
agent and broker of that city.    Associated with him are said to be a number of
heavy shareholders in th* Canadian Pacific railway.   From this it would, appear
that the gentlemen who practically control the destinies of the big corporation
determined not to be at the mercy of
those who manage the Crow's Nest Coal
company, in so far as coal and coke are
concerned.     Especially if recent reports
from the west are correct that James Hill,
ofthe Great Northern railway has heme associated and a large shareholder
the Crow's Nest company.   By acquiring these coal fields the C. P. R. would
place itself in a position to cope with the
inroads of the Great Northern at Fernie.
The coal fields are reached five miles
north from Fairview on the main wagon
road to Penticton at the foot of Okanogan
lake.   The deposits have been recognized of great value for the past 15 years
but lack of railway transportation has
prohibited a proper exploitation  of the
esources.   Some prospecting has been
ttempted from time to time, and coal
has been mined for local purposes.    It is
ported to make excellent coke, suitable
for smelting purposes.
Should the deal go through the owners
ill receive a substantial cash payment
1 also considerable stock in a company
1 be formed to acquire and develop the
ime.    The proposed route of the Coast-
Kootenay railway passes directly through
the property and the building of this road
will afford facilities for transportation not
only to the camps of Similkameen district but also to the Boundary.
Decorative Art in Princeton.
Painting as a fine art is being practised
extensively by several fair dames in
Princeton. The interior decorations of
j of our principal homes bear testimony to the varied accomplishments of
the occupants.   Our reporter  happened
pay a visit to one of the pretty homes
the town this week and found several
ladies busily engaged in beautifying the
as in a most artistic manner. The
colour effect, in one room in particular,
bore evidence of the artists ability to
l paint and create a new colour which
patented   would   certainly   be   the
ms of bringing in a large income to
the inventor.

Grand ForkB—The biggest deal in
history of the Boundary was closed this
week when the famous B. C. Mine wai
purchased by an American syndicati
headed by E. D. Nelson, president of the
First National Bank of Ironwood, Mich.,
the price being away up into the big
numbers but the exact figures have not
yet been made public.
Greenwood—-basing 1900 48,600 shares
in the British Columbia Copper Company were sold on the New York stock
exchange, at prices ranging from ^8.25,
which was the lowest quotation, reached
in Januajy, to $21.25, the highest, reach
ed in December. The sales on the Boston stock exchange totalled 44,613 shares
and the quotations varied from JS8.63 to
$21.75. There, too, the lowest was i
January and the highest was in Decembe:
The par value of the shares is $5. Th
company owns the smelter ftfcffreenwood
and the well-known Mother Lode rnit
Rossland—A conflict of interests h
arisen among various claimants to t
wafer power of the PaudlQreilleriver, I
that litigation isjhreatened.  A New York*
company, said to be backed by large capital, has located a mill site and  watei
right on both sides of the river, while another inteiest claims the title to the Root-
e{ay Hydraulic Co., which, however it is
asserted, only owns an old building and
Some machinery abandoned several.years
ago,; and which owns no millsite or water
rights.   Still another combination is after
the same location so it is feared that
velopment will be entirely stopped,
til the courts determine who has the be£t
legal position and title.
Phoenix Shipments—The output from
the properties at Phoenix, controlled by
the Miner-Graves syndicate, is well maintained and if kept up during the year will
have a marked effect upon the tonnage
of gold-copper ore pioduced in the province as the following figures will show.
Tons
Week ending Jan. 2 (2 days) 1,512
 '   9 6,383
23-
...5,048
Total, 23 days 18.143
Average, per day      788
With the ore being shipped from the
Mother Lode and the B. C the Boundary
is even now well ahead of the Rossland
district as a productive district.
Phoenix—The Pioneer recently said
that Solicitor Whiteside, for McArthur
& Monk, who say they represent wealthy
capita1 ists, made application to the city
council for an exclusive electric light and
tramway franchise for the corporation of
Phoenix. Just what will be done with
the matter does not yet appear, but at
next week's meeting it will doubtless b<
brought up. It is not stated who the par
ties are, but it seems that something is it
the wind.
The recent advance in the stock of the
Morrison Mines, Ltd., is accounted for
by the splendid showing at the 11
Superintent Gus Peterson has a force of
15 men under him. The long tunnel is
in 900 feet and has crosscut diagonally
three distinct lodes. Nothing authori-
tively can be learned regarding values,
but there is a dump of ore that from ap
pearances and size should prove profitable
under treatment.
On the last pay Jday fat the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Victoria, Brooklyn and
Stemwinder mines, over 500 men received
checks.
