There was also  an increase of $690,879 in the value of  coal and coke and of $43,600 in that of  other non-metallic minerals. The foregoing figures, therefore, exhibit last  year's net increase, which was $3,975,-  506, as shown in detail in the following  table:  J\*W* Sperry Company, Ctd  VO  vO  vO  w  1-  r-4  -  r-l  ..

The  total number of shipping mines is now.  99, while the number of mines shipping  over 100 tons- each in one year was 60  for 1900 as compared with 43 in 1899.  The figures for the whole of Canada  for the year 1900 are not yet available  but those for 1899, given in the following table, will serve to show the very-  important position the part of the Dominion lying w��st of the Rocky Mountains occupies in. .regard to Canada's  total production in 1899 with that  situate cast of the Rockies. It will be  seen that the total value of metallic  minerals, coal and coke produced in  British Columbia and the Yukon was  $28,150,155 as against $10,073,642 for  the remainder of the Dominion.

CITY C0UNCIL.  ���The regular weekly' meeting of the  city council was held last Monday  night. There were present the mayor  and Aldermen Caulfield, Naden and  Sutherland.  The city clerk was instructed to  notify I. P. Armstrong that, according to the report made by the city  engineer, the council will not be able  td supply the water asked for by him.  The bid of T. M. Gulley & Co. to bury  bodies of dead paupers at $17 each was  accepted. The street committee was  empowered to assist the Yale-Columbia  Lumber company in protecting the  banks of Boundary creek at the com-  panyls lumber yard, cost nottoexceed  $100. Messrs. Portmaun and A. Sater  were accepted as bondsmen for the city  scavenger. Aid. Naden introduced a  fire limit by-law, which received its  first and second readings. The estimates by-law: was finally passed. It  was resolved to hold a court of revision  in connection with the 1901 assessment  roll on April 23 and following days if  necessary, and the clerk was instructed  to advertise same. The water works  committee was requested to repair the  intake at the reservoir and the city  engineer was instructed to report fully  upon his suggestion that a mechanical  gate to regulate tbe flow of waste  water be placed at the reservoir and to  have a weir constructed across Twin  creek for the purpose of obtaining data  as to the flow of water down the creek  the year through. Aid. Caulfield,  Naden and Sutherland were appointed  a committee to look into the question  of street lighting and to report thereon. The c(ty solicitor reported that  the city's appeal in thei case of Water-  land vs. City of Greenwood, had been  set down for hearing at the May term  of .the Full court.. Council adjourned  at 11 p. m.  The Snowslioe group, situate near  Phoenix, is oyvned by the British Columbia (Rossland and Slocan) Syndicate, Iy td., of London .England. - The  Snowshoe claim is being developed by  both shaft and tunnel workings.' An  incline shaft lias been' sunk 200 feet  and crosscuts and drifts have been run  at.botK,lp0an'J200 foot levels. These  developments have opened up a lot. of  ore. From the 200 foot level a diamond  drill hole has been put-down.'500 feet.  The crosscut tunnel is: in about 500  feet. It has encountered one body of  ore and is now being driven ahead in  the .hope of another .payshoot being  met with. A winze in the tunnel has  been sunk 100 feet and a crosscut in  the bottom of it has'shown that the ore  continues at that depth and is of good  grade. This ore body, as developed by  the tunnel add ���vinze.-has been shown  to have an average dip of abont 45 degrees northerly, that is, into the Snow-  shoe property. A raise from the tunnel, at the westerly extremity of ,this  shoot of ore, now up about 80 feet, is  in ore also of good grade. The main  object in view in making this raise is  to improve the ventilation of these  workings, but it is at the same time  good development work since it is  proving the ore to be continuous. The  Snowshoe ore is generally similar to  that on the neighboring Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill group.  The Snowshoe group., comprises the  Snowshoe, Pheasant, Fairplay fraction  and Alma fraction. A prospect shaft,  sunk 35 feet on the Fairpjay fraction,  shows at the present- tinie^a^large deposit of iron pyrites.'carrying'-.values in  gold and silver. Altogether some 4,000  feet of work, in shafts, drifts, crosscuts, etc., have been done on the  group. . .. . ;  A spur has been put"ih frOth the  Phoenix branch .of the Columbia &  Western rail-way, for loading-ore. ��� Although there is a large quantity of ore  locked out ready for extraction, the  mine is not yet equipped for maintaining regular shipments. From time^to  time one or two carloads of--ore have  been sent to the smelter for test pur  poses and in this way;14 carloads in all  have been shipped.  The plant on the property includes a  70-horse power horizontal return tabular boiler, a 40-horse power locomotive'  boiler, a 12x18 straight line* Rand air  compressor, a 28x10 air receiver, half a  dozen machine drills, two hoisting engines���one 6#x8 and the other 5x8���  aud a No. 5 Cameron sinking pump.  will  cease working at this point and  commence a crosscut to  the south on  the 100-foot level, where it is confident  ly expected   the   vein   will   again   b  tapped.  RAILWAY MEETING.  THE WINNIPEG.  The meeting called by the mayor ot  Greenwood to consider matters relating **  to the proposed Coast-Kootenay railway was numerously attended last  Friday night, every seat in the City  Hall having been occupied. In the  unavoidable absence of the mayor Mr.  W. M. I,aw was appointed chairman  and Mr. W. G. Gaunce was secretary.  After considerable discussion the following resolution was adopted:  Whereas the Provincial government  has declared its intention of introducing a measure providing a subsidy to  aid in the construction of the Coast-  Kootenay railway.  And whereas it is reported that the  Canadian Pacific railway company are  making every effort to secure the sub  sidy   to   assist   them  in  building the  road.  . And whereas cheap freight rates are  essential in the development of the  mining and allied industries of the  province, and in the absence of government ownership of railways, the best  safeguard against excessive freight  charges is competition.  Therefore  be   it   resolved   that the  citizens of Greenwood, in public meet- y  ing   assembled,   urge   upon the Pro- **.  vincial government that any subsidy  to aid in the construction of the Coast-  Kootenay railway   should   be in cash  granted to a company not likely to fall  nnder   the  control  of  the   Canadian  Pacific* railway,   and should be made  only on the immediate commencement    '.  and bonafide continuous construction  of such toad.  And be it further resolved that copies  of this resolution be forwarded to the   -  government and members of the Pro- -  vincial legislature. .  The Coast-Kootenay railway matter  having been disposed of, advantage  was taken of this opportuaity to obtain an endorsement of the Midway?  Vernon railway project with the result  that   the   following   resolution     was  passed: ,  i .  -Whereas, an extension of the Shuswap and Okanagan railway/to Rock  creek   or   Midway   would traverse an  agricultural   and   mineral country of  -  great   promise,  a  country which will -  not   be   served by  any other contemplated line of railway; and whereas an  increased   traffic   would  accrue   from ���  such   extension to   the Shuswap and  Okanagan railway it would go fa  to relieve the Province of British Columbia  of   the   annual   liability of 540,000 or  thereabouts incurred by the provincial  guarantee of interest.  Be it resolved, that this-meeting re- __  commends.to the favorable consideration of the government any proposal-  calculated   to   secure   such   extension  and   expresses   its  opinion that   any  such   scheme^ would be worthy of a  liberal cash subsidy from the province  "an'd^sh'ould'be^made'only on condition���  of the immediate commencement aud  continuous    construction    until   completed of such road.  ADAMS-MOFFET.  The wife of Mr. A. L,ander, farmer,  died in premature childbirth at her  home near Midway last Monday night.  The funeral took place at Midway yesterday afternoon, Rev. R. P. Murray,  Presbyterian min inter, conducting the  burial rites. The deceased lady who  leaves two young children without a  mother's care, was a sister of Mrs. A.  E- Horridge, of the Imgrim ranch.  Much sympathy is felt for Mr. Lander  in the irreparable loss he has sustained  b y the death of his wife.  Large   shipments   of ladies  spring  whitewear and just arrived at Rendell  & Co.       -    - --  In his circular stock letter of Feb'y  25th, Mr. Richard Plewman, of Rossland, who is managing director of the  Winnipeg Mines, Ltd., made the following comment on the Winnipeg  mine: Development work it the mine  has been progressing satisfactorily.  The station in the north tunnel, 300-  foot level,* over thesecond^north^yeinv-  is finished and a_.complete new plant  installed and sinking is now being vigorously pushed there. On the 50-foot  level the eastern dyke has been pierced  and the tunnel driven forward 60 feet.  A crosscut to the north was then made,  which failed to encounter the ledge.  Then a crosscut to . the south was  started and word has just been received  from the mine that this has encountered the ledj-e. This same ledge, between the eastern and western dykes,  pitches to the north and then faults.  Now we have the same ledge for the  first time outside the dykes and instead  of pitching north it pitches south. This  important discovery may explain why  the 125 feet of a crosscut to the north,  driven last summer on the 100-foot  level, failed to find the led^e. That  crosscut should probably also have  gone south Instead of north. . It now  looks as if the long-lost key to the mysterious faulting of the Winnipeg will  soon be found.  Under date March llth, Mr. Plewman remarks: The winze on the second  north vein, 300-foot level, is now down  50 feet. Timbering has just been completed and sinking resumed. Since the  trlngercame in 25 feet down the yein  has steadily widened and is now 6 feet  wide with good walls. It is confidently expected that at a depth of 60 ft. or  65 ft., the No. 1 and No. 2 veins will  have united. On the 50-foot level���  east of the eastern dyke, where an important discovery was reported in ipy  last as having just been made���the  south crosscut showed the ledge to be  6 feet wide, the same width that it  averaged for 90 feet when stoped out  on the other side of the dyke. Drifting  eastward was then started and continued for 25 feet, and at this point we  are aboutjg sinlum the vein for say 201 ��� a. $650 piano in perfect condition to  feet, and then if all is satisfactory) we be hadat half priceat Rendell &.Co.  On  Tuesday evening, 5th inst., Mr.  Harry Adams,   brother of Mrs. L. A.  Smith, of Anaconda,   was married to  Miss Maud Moffet, youngest daughter  of  Mrs.   R.  H.  Hutchens   and   stepdaughter of the popular superintendent    .  of the British Columbia Copper company's Mother Lode mine.   The cei��e-  mony   took  place  at the mine in the  Masonic hall, which was very  prettily  decorated with flags forthe occasion.  Rev. W. A. Robins, M.  A., clergyman  in charge of St. Jude's Church of England   Mission,   Greenwood,   officiated  and there   were present besides relatives of the bride and groom about 80  others,    including     niany     personal  friends.   Mrs. J. A. McKinnon, sister  of the bride, was bridesmaid,  and the  bridegroom was attended by  Mr. Milton A. Lehner as best man.   The'bride  looked  charming   in  a cream, colored  silk   dre.s,    profusely   trimmed   with  lace and she carried a beautiful bridal  bouquet.    After the ceremony Mr. and  Mrs.  Hutchins entertained  at  supper  in  their   home   between  twenty  and  thirty  guests.   The toast of the bride  and   bridegroom was enthusiastically  received and was responded to by the  latter.,  Other  toats   followed   and   a �����  very pleasant time was spent until the  company dispersed at\ midnight.   The  bride   was   the recipient of numerous  presents.   Mr.   and   Mrs.   Adams  at  once   went  into housekeeping in their  new home at the Mother Lode mine,  where they are held in much esteem.

It  is known here that more   that half a  million dollars have been expended by  one New York company, on its Mother  Lode miue and its-smelter at  Greenwood, and only last week came the following press despatch dated Montreal,  March 7,���"S. H. C.  Miner,, president  of   the Miner-Graves    syndicate,  admitted that   the   syndicate   had been  offered $15,000,000 for the Old Ironsides,  Knob Hill aud Grey.Eagle properties,  and the Granby smelter by an agent of  New York parties.    The offer has been  refused.   The agent is reported, however, to   have   secured   an   option  on  another large Boundary property."   It  was Mr. Brown's  misfortune to  meet  men who, perhaps, hold extreme views  as to the risks that  attend investment  in British Columbia mining properties,  but, "there are others."  at Montreal on the Sth inst, are: Vice-  President, Robert R. Hedley, manager  of the -Hall Mines smelter, Nelson;  members of the council, Bernard Macdonald, manager of the Le Roi mine,  Rossland; Edmund B. Kirby, manager of the War Eagle mine.

I>* another column of this issue ether  appear particulars of the mineral production of British Columbia for the  years 1899 and 1900. These serve to  show that very "material and gratifying progress was made during the latter year. An advance in the total  value of the mineral output from $12.-  356,555 in $16,332,061 in 1900, being' an  increase of a little more than 32' per  cent., is certainly very satisfactory.  It is yet early, -with disturbing elements once again looming up���this  time in the shape of higher reduction  urates���that threaten'to restrict the output of silver-lead" ores, to anticipate  similar substantial all round progress  in lode mining during 1901. This much  may, however, be said,, that in regard  to lode goid and copper, the latter especially, the outlook is very  promising, for. a considerable further increase in the output. There  is very little doubt that the production  of these metals will be greater" in the  Kootenay and* Boundary districts, and  coast mines give promise of- adding  more largely to the total than in previous years. "��� So far as the Boundary  district ris concerned it need oniy be  pointed out that whilst its total production of copper-gold ores last year-  its first year as a producer���was only  about 100,000 tons, a .daily output of  1,000 tons is nowbeing steadily maintained and preparations are being made  for- an: increase to about 2,000 tons a  day for the latter half pf the year. This  is a simple: statement of fact made in  the belief that it is fully warranted,  under the following circumstances. It  is the declared intention of the Miner-  Graves syndicate to increase the output of its mines to 1,200 tons daily, and  of the British Columbia Copper. Company to produce 600 tons, so that with  this output, the B. C.v maintaining its  *��� production =* of-100-tons-daily,.and^_the.  Monison fulfilling.its contract to supply a similar-quantity-leaving altogther  out of account-half a dozen other properties that will produce smaller quantities of ore���it will be seen that this  is by no means an exaggerated anticipation, y.  Then, too, the conditions are more  favorable this year for an enlarged  production of gold from placer and  hydraulic mining, and certainly for a  bigger output of coal and coke from  the coal mines of the. interior. It is,  therefore, not unreasonable, conditionally, that present, promise be borne  out, to anticipate for the current year  a total mineral production of somewhere about 520,000,000.  Particular attention is directed to the  comparative table which exhibits the  large proportion this province contributed in 1899 to the mineral production  of the dominion. Probably the showing for 1900 will be still more in favor  of British Columbia, but until the figures for the remainder of the dominion  for that year are available, this later  comparison will not be practicable.  So for the present, British Columbia  must be content with, the importance  that attaches to the fact being made  known that in 1899^ the value of its total mineral production (leaving out  "other materials",)-> was S12,150,155,  whilst that of the-enormously larger  area of the dominion, lying east of the  Rocky Mountains was only $10,073,643.  DON'T   ALL TgHINK ALIKE.  ae  : _ ,  MR. R. A. Browj**, of Volcanic and  Sunset notoriety,vvTas lately reported in  Boundary and Kootenay district newspapers as having said for publication  that it was practically impossible to  interest capital in .any mining project  in British Columbia at the present  time. "I talked with over twenty millionaires while in 'the east," said Mr.  Brown, "and every one of them while  ALWAYS TELLS THE TRUTH?  Said the Phoenix Pioneer in its issue  of March 2nd: "The Pioneer has always stood up and told the truth about  Phoenix." Surely the strain was too  much for that self-righteous journal  for in its next issue it stated that the  Board of Trade visitors were accompanied "through the long tunnels and  stopes of the Knob Hill mine, for a  distance of perhaps two or three miles."  Then it went one better and said editorially that the visitors "were shown  through two or three miles of ore in  the Knob Hill mine." Now, an official  statement of the number of feet of work  done in development of theJKnob Hill  mine to December 31st last, including  587 feet of sinking and raising, showed  a total of 3783 feet,- and in the adjoining Grey Eagle, into which its workings extend, 477 feet, altogether 4,260  feet. As there are 10,560 feet in two  miles, not to say anything of three  miles, will the Pioneer have the hardihood to insist that there was over 150  per cent, more feet of work done in the  Knob Hill mine during the first ten  weeks of 1901 -than during the several  previous years over which its development extended, or will it admit that  there still exists occasion for the old  scriptural exhortation "Let him that  thinketh he standeth take heed lest he  fall."  A SHORT time ago exception was  taken locally to Mr. F. J. Deane,-secretary of the Commission appointed by  the Federal Government' to enquire into the Chinese question, staying at a  hotel which employs Chinese. ��� Vancouver newspapers last week reported  Mr. Chris. Foley, of Rossland, as a  guest at the Hotel Vancouver, which  employs both Japs and Chinese. It  will now be in order to take Mr.. Foley  to task, too, for this offence.  DIn reviewing the statistics of the  mining industry we. cannot refrain  from comparing the estimates, made  by the provincial mineralogist and previously published with the actual figures which are now given. The production of lode gold only varies by 1.1  per cent.; that of silver by % per cent,  andofcopper^by. only_���.one_fifth,_o_f_j3ne_  per cent., from the estimates made by  Mr. Robertson, a. fact which must be  regarded as a testimony to the ability  and care which he brings to bear on  the matters entrusted to him-���News-  Advertiser.  A Grand Forks press, despatch recently stated that the revenue collected  at the port of Grand Forks for the  month of February reached $9,902  This is one of those half-truths that require a little explanation. Grand  Forks is, for customs purposes, the  port of the Boundary district, and in  its returns are included customs collections at the outports of Cascade,  Greenwood and Midway and the preventive stations at Sidley and Osoyoos.  The February collections at Greenwood,  included in the above quoted total of  $9,902, were j56,309.08. It will therefore be seen that after making allowance as well for the other four tributary offices, the actual collections at  the Grand Forks office made a much  more modest showing than the wily  correspondent would have it appear.

THIS GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES  March 14th,  1901.  THE GROWS ^EST  Pass    Coal   Company    Hold  Their Annual Meeting  THE PRESIDENT DISCUSSES  The Proposed Railway to the American Boundary���The Financial  Statement.  The annual meeting- of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company, Limited,  ���was held'in Toronto, Friday, the lst'of  March, 1901.    :  The following- report was submitted,  to the shareholders:��� . ��� *  The directors have pleasure in submitting to the shareholders of the company their annual report, including  statement of assets and liabilities as  at 31st December, 1900.,      '.'.  The net profits forthe year, after  paying- all operating- expenses and all  charges of every kind at the head  office and mines, amounted to S141,-  064.10. This amount has been derived  ���from the various departments of the  company's'business, viz.: The sale of  coal and coke, and from the waterworks, house rentals, general store,  etc., etc. As no dividend was paid for  the year on the company's capital, the  above sura has been carried forward to  credit of Profit and Loss, making a  ���total sum at credit of that account (including the amount alread"j_!.lhere from  the earnings of 1899) of S188, 874.52.  The coal produced during 1900  amounted to 220,458 tons. Of this tonnage 114,003 tons were sent to thc company's coke ovens at Fernie, 'and pro-  ��� duced 73,496 tons of coke, while the  balance of 106,395 was disposed of as  merchantable coal.  Luri.-g   the year the company paid  out in cash the sum of $374,080.83, of  which the pay rolls amounted to $419,-  037.09, the balance of $455,043.74 having been disbursed for new "coke ovens,  additions to plant and for development  work at Fernie and Michel.    One hundred and ten (110) new coke ovens were  .built in 1900,  which makes, with  the  "202 in operation at the end of 1899, a  - total of 312 ovens, with a capacity of  over 450 tons of coke per day.-       . -  , The number of men at present in the  company's   employ is about 800, and  'the number will, of course, steadily in-  ciease as our mines are developed.  ��� .. All  of which is respectfully submitted. .    -  Julias'Rogers,        Gao. A. Cox, ���  Managing Director. ' President.  Toronto, Canada, Marcii 1, 1901.

In congratulating you upon the success of last year'soperatidnSj it may be  worth while to refer to the erroneous  ideas that have gone abroad with regard to the management and control of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company.  We are, in every respect, a Canadian  enterprise, with a large majority of  Canadian stockholders, under Canadian control and management, and  are giving employment to a great  force of labor on Canadian soil. We  are developing Canada's natural resources in one of the inost.impor.tant  economic  minerals,  and are building  -up an immense Canadian*, industry,  ���which is bringing, wealth to the Dominion, and which, we feel assured,  will constitute a most important factor  in theCanadi'an industrial development  of the futuie, unless our operations are  restricted by a limited market and inadequate railway facilities.  It affords me great pleasure to announce that we are .prepared to proceed at once with construction and development work involving an imniedi-  _ate expenditure of $835,000, and we  already have this money in t he treasury  .of the company for this purpose. This  "large sum does not include the railway  Tproject, to which I will refer later, but  ���will be devoted exclusively to development work, the building of coke ovens,  .dwellings'- offices and other works in  ^connection with the coal and coke industry of the company. We intend to  ,build at Fernie, Michel, an^at another  suitable point, 720 coke ovens, "which  will involve an expenditure of $540,000  r under"this head alone. We will then  have 1,032 ovens, which will increase  our capacity for coke production from.  over 450 tuns per day, as at present, to  more than 1,500 tons per day. Our expenditure will also include more than  a" quarter of a million' dollars;on mine  improvements, offices and miners'  dwellings. These expenditures and  the extensive mining and coke-producing operations .that are to follow will  create and maintain, two hew towns  in the coal district as large as Fernie,  which how owes its . existence to the  woiks carried on by this company.  There is a prospective-demand, provided we obtain access to the American market, as I shall hereafter mention, for 4,500 tons bf coal.per day within a year, and in three years we expect  to increase our output to ahont 6,000-  tons of caal per day, a large portion of  which will be converted imo coke in  our ovens, and within five years we ex-  pact to have a pay roll of fully $10,000 per  day,which-wiil be sufficient to maintain  three important industrial centers in  the coal-district.  All business men will at once realize  how important such a development  will be to the country at large, as mining camps are invaribly extensive consumers of supplies. Not only will  there be the, direct employment for  several thousand Canadiau working-  men, but a new and most extensive demand will be created-for the products  of Canadian factories in the east, and  the'food supplies from the western  farms and cattle ranches.  It is only fair to you, however, to  state that the present demand of British  Columbia for coal and coke wou'.d not  justify any'such-expenditures as.we  propose to make. This is self-evident  when I state that the present demand  of British Columbia does not exceed 1,-  000 tons of coal and coke per day, and  we cannot expect this demand to increase in thfc: near future, even under  most favorable conditions, so as to  justify such expenditures.  In order that we may proceed with  this development, it'will be absolutely  necessary ; to secure access to the  American markets by a route that will,  put us in a position to successfully compete with the coal and coke producers  already in the field. If denied access  to the American markets, except by  ronnd-about: routes, if delayed in our  operations by legislative obstruction,  if prevented in any way from cutting-  down the cost of production to the narrowest possible marg-in, our success in  the field will be proportionately  cramped, and it. will be quite impossible to undertake the development  now proposed. ''���  Recognizing, therefore, the necessity of obtaining direct access,to the  adjacent markets of the United States,  au application has been made to parliament by five of your directors for a  charter to build a railway from the  coal fields to the boundary, "where it is  intended to connect with a'spurline  from Jennings on the Great Northern  railway. .>-,..*.  This is simply an effort to secure an  entrance, by the best possible route, to  an almost unlimited market for coal and  coke, where we must meet the keenest  competition. And without this market  any.large development of these British  Columbia coal fields will be practically  impossible.  The fear has been expressed in some  quarters that the establishment of  railway connection between the Crow's  Nest coal "fields and the Great Northern railway system will deprive the  Canadian .mining and smelting industries of a supply, of;, coal and coke,  and that the- company may create a  shortage in the. Canadian supply to  benefit American smelting interests.  These fears are groundless'. From  geoldgical.reports, it appears that there  are over 250,000 acres of coal lauds in  the Crow's Nest country, containingia  supply of coal which" is conceded by all  authorities' to be practically exhaust-  less, it being-estimated, that there'are  iu this area 20,000,000,000 tons of coal.  This "would admit an output of 10,000  tons per* day, allowing 300 working  days per year for over 6,000 years.  This is entirely independent of theim-  mense coal areas in Alberta and in  other parts of British Columbia.  We are at present prepared to enter  into time contracts with the smelters  of British Columbia to supply, any  quantities of coal or coke they may require; bnt so far as 'the local supply is  concerned, its safety can be best assured by such development of the  Crow's Nest mines as will* be made  possible by the building of ...the pro-  -posed -line  Successful operation of the mines on  a large scale would be impossible if  our market were limited to British Columbia and it were subject to the  fluctuations we have experienced this  last j-ear.  With an immense, coal and coking  industry in operation, turning out  from-six to ten'thousand tons of coal  a day, the British Columbia smelters  now in operation could close down or  open up without notice, as often as  they might feel inclined, and the  change would not be felt. The smelters now in operation on ������ the Canadian  side only, require abont"300 tons of coke  per day. If ��� we are restricted as to  market.-!, there will be higher initial  cost, risk of suspension through accidents, difficulty in securing labor.and  in meeting any variation in the demand.  Although there is an immense area  of coal in the Crow's Nest country that  is of the best quality for coking, we  should not harbor the delusion that  this district has all the coking coal on  the continent. There will be competition from the" existing-sources of  supply ��� from Cokedale, on Puget  Sound, Pennsylvania, West Virginia,  Utah and Colorado. There are are also  immense coal, deposits in Montana,  Washington and other places, which  may prove, when tested, to be of good  coking quality. '       *'  . To enter and hold this market, which  means from 5,000 to .6,000 tons of coal  per day, the Crow's. Nest Pbss Coal  Company must have the best railway  facilities available, and that is "why it  is absolutely necessary to build the  proposed spur.  There is hardly any industry so universally beneficial to a cduntryvas coal  miniug and coke making for export  trade. The coal and coke are both  brought to the last stage of perfection  before being shipped out. All labor is  expended on them in the country, and  there is nothing further to be done  with them except to consume them.  Not so with logs, not so with lumber,  with wheat, with wool, with pulp, and  with many other products exported.  Every dollar that comes into the country in return for coal of Cbke exports  makes the country just that much  richer.   The farmer, the rancher, the  miller,, the merchant and the manufacturer will allprofit. There will also be  an enormous direct revenue to the  British Columbia government from the  royalty. That government is now deriving a revenue of about $100.00 a day  from our present operations.  In addition to the development of the  coal and coke industry, the proposed  railway will open up a prospect, and  an assured prospect, of smelting development which will prove, from a  public standpoint, of the very greatest  importance. .  The success of the smelting industry  depends tipon the ability to assemble  the various materials essential to profitable smelting at the lowest possible  cost, and if the proposed line of railway  is built, connecting the Crow's Nest  fields with the American railway systems,  the balance of advantage will  Concluded on Fourth Pane.  tn addition to groceries, candy",  spuds, etc., we have five good unfurnished rooms to rent cheup.

J.t.pO'  'Conthrued  be ^ec'.dedly.in favpr.of the Canadian  _.i'd<^.o(is'7i_he rPJace ^9*. establishing a  large and profitable smelting industry.  The Canadian, people have but to inj-  proye.t_heir(/o_pportunity, to stand out  of tlie ,waV,and let good fortune in.  In order to illustrate what I have  said; permit me to point out how suitable a placcFernie. or some point adjacent .theretOj would be for the estab-  lisHinent^p-; ;.a smelting" industry.  There we have the coke, without any  charge for.hauling, while to carry it to  any smelting-point south of the ;line  would involve a hauling charge, as  well as an American duty; of 60 cents  per ton. The limestone required is to-  be found at .Fernie, ivith" no expense  except the_cc_st.of. ^ian*yirig. 77 :  The lead -ores of 7souther_i7 British  Columbia -are. now seeking a, market,  which is almost impossible.for them to  find, and those adjacent to the coal  fields could, at a trifling cost for transportation, belaid down ��� at Fernie, or ���  some other convenient point. The dry  ores necessary.to make workable and-,  profitable mixtures and blends are not  at present to be obtained in British Columbia, but are to be found through  the adjacent mining states along the  lines and connections of the Great  Northern and Northern Pacific railways; and the ore cars taking the coal  and coke from the mines at Fernie to  suyply the railways and established  industries in these states, instead of  coming back empty, would, at a low  cost for transportation, bring back  these dry ores to such a smelter. There  is no point south of the boundary line  where a smelting industry could, so  easily or so profitably be established.  If a smelting industry for Canadian ores were established south  of tbe line, there would be,  as above mentioned, the cost of transportation of the coke to thesite of the  smelting industry.; the duty on this  coke* entering the United States; the  cost of transporting the lead ores from  British,Cplumbia to.the site of the proposed smelter, and the American dutj*  on the lead ores entering the United  States, which, upon the quality of ore  found in some of the best mines in  British "Columbia would probably be  about $9 per ton.  Simply on the item of transportation, there would be thc serious handicap of the ore cars bringing down the  coke and ore from British Columbia to  a smelter on the American side, being-  compelled to return,empty, and this  would necessarily entail a proportionately higher freight rate.  Not the least important factor in  the situation is the fear in the mind^  of American capitalists interested in  the mining industry of the west that  an export duty may be put upon ores  by the Canadian government, and this  would cripple any smelting industry  established on the American side dependent upon Canadian * ores as its  source of supply.  That this is riot simply theory, but  the mature judgment of practical  smelting men, is evidenced by the fact  that we have the most' positive assurances from a smelting man of" large  capital and experience that if we obtain the proposed railway connection,  he will at once commence; the erection  of a.large smelting plant in British  Columbia adjacent to the coal fields;  arid we have assurances scarcely less  definite'from others of the establishment of three or four more smelting  industries at other suitable points iu  southern British _ Columbia, provided  ihe^broposedroad is built.; *  The prospect, therefore, for soutliern  .British Columbia, would_appear', to be  exceedingly-bright. Once the .charter  for .the/railway is assured, the construction of.the coke ovens, the building of the homes for the miners, and  tbe virtual establishment of two new  towns in southern British Columbia,  will await only the opening of the season. Scarce more time .will elapse,  from the assurances we now have, before more than one large smelting industry will be put under way, and hundreds of thousands of dollars will be  invested in de.veloping this important  industry in that country. .        .7  With improved .transportation facilities, as well as the improved smelting  facilities, which would be secured, a  smelter, could secure freight charges  and give rates for treatment that are  now impossible.  It is hardly necessary to dwell at  length on the resultant benefits to mining and other enterprises in British  Columbia. These benefits are self  evident. ���  In every lead-mine there are masses  of ore that will not pay-at the.<present  rate for treatment; in every camp there  are propositions and mines just too lean  to ; tempt,: operators or ..investors.  .E}v__ry dollar taken' off the charge for  treatment means" thousands of tons  more of ore available, and proportionately swells the pay rolls of every  ca.mp. Every dollar , reduction in  smelter charges widens the pay streak  of every mine, and brings new . mines  within the paying class. '���������'���#  It would be a great misfortune to  British Columbia and to the Dominion  at large if this opportunity should be  lost, through the failure to secure  adequate means* of * transportation.  There are rival projects south of the  boundary.���- Immense coal areas in the  States of��� Washington and Montana  are in process of development, and ir"  the parties interested in these properties once secure posession and contrjl  of the market iu these States for coal  and coke, I fear the coal and coke cf  British Coluriibia will stand a very  poor chance of ever taking it from  them.  The promoters of this, railway ask  no cash, bonus or land grant of any  kindjthey simply desire the opportunity  of expending their own mouey,to construct a railway which will be of great  public, benefit. ./   *;  We now have a prospect of building  up a city as large as Butte in the  Crow's Nest coal district; aud I cannot  think it possible that either the parliament of Canada or the legislature of  British'Columbia will place any barrier in the way of the industrial de:  velopment of the country, or will adopt  a course which may delay ttiat development half a century. I, therefore,  look forward with confidence to a  charter being granted; and, this being  done, the development which I have  outlined, will be at once proceeded  with; but unless the charter is granted  the development cannot be undertaken.  The President moved the adoption of  the report, which was seconded by Mr.  Jaffray, thc first vice-president of the  company, aud carried.  Mr. JSlias Rogers,, managing director, gave au interesting address, detailing the past year's operations of  the company..
