A  TO COMMENCE  KOOTENAY CENTRAL  1 BANNER  YEAR, 1910  la spite of what previous New  Years may have promised this  section of the illustrious Pacific  province, and in spite of the disappointments of the past in the  non-fulfillment of better conditions, 1910 promises much tbat  we.may reasonably presume to  expect will take place, and if it  does the Boundary will benefit in  every possible wa!Y, and 1910 will  be a banner year. Railway construction, steady increase in mining and smelting, a larger settlement of Kettle river fruit farming country and coke ovens at the  Midway coal mines are all in line.

The bill has, thus now-passed  through both-houses.  The choice of Yass-Canberra  ends a controversy that has lasted nearly ten years. The site of  the capital, the- new name of  which has vet-to be decided, is in  the Murray-district, about 200  miles southwest of Sydney. A  broad and fertile valley enclosed  by hills and watered by tJ-e Mo"  longio river gives ample scope for  the creation of a beautiful city.  It is also proposed to make a federal port ab Jervis bay, 130 miles  distant, and to connect it with  the capital by a federal railway.  A report comes from Angus K.

F1JFTY  THOUSAND SHAREIS  Of the capital stock of this Company ar-e offered for sale at  25 Cents Per Share, $ I.OO Par  To provide funds for the development of its coal properties near Midway.  The company owns the coal rights of 2,458 acres of land and has options on  three square miles additional. Work has 1/een done in development continuously since  September 2, and a tunnel is now being driven to cross-cut three seams which show on  the surface. Coal can be delivered from the mouth of this tunnel to the C. P. R.  tracks below by gravity.  Development work done thus far is as follows:  One prospecting tunnel on the surface of the seam, 50 feet in length.  One shaft find drifts, about 45 feet, all in the coal seam.  One shaft and incline, following the proven seam to the depth of 80 feet.  An analysis of the surface coal returns 66 per cent carbon and only 3 per cent ash.  The Company owns other properties, including fruit lands, mineral claims,  options on mineral claims, mines and timber limits. Its coal holdings alone are  considered worth more than its issued capital stock. An investment in this stock at  the present price should be immensely productive.  This is an opportunity of which you should take advantage without delay.  Send applications or write for information to  TH  if*.    L 1 Lm  GREENW0��B* B. C  ,-'*ra!
