Survey Department 1o Differentiate Between Var=  ' 'ft  ious Classes  Washington, July 5.���������It. is'not generally known thai two main groups  of coal below the grade of hitumin-  ous are rccogn i/ed in this country,  -and that ofiictals of the United  States geological survey lia^c recent-  , ly adopted inmes fo distinguish-  them. In many of the coal fields  of the west, tb'ic arc large deposits  of so-oalled black lignite, which is  somewhat inferior to bituminous cral  in three important respects. It has  lower calorific value- it is lighter in  wei.iht, so that in a forced draft a  large-percentage is thrown out of the  smo'icslack uiiconsiuncd, and it'breaks  down or "slacks" \ery easily when  exposed  to the atmosphere-.  A large amount of this coal is now  mined, and in tlie tta.de. it is .generally known as lignite This 'name is  not al all appiopriat*, since, it  seems.to inilicaR*. a lower Kt'aib: of  coal than is actually lhe case, and  also since the coal sliows no .more  trace of woody si met ure than docs  bitumiuoiir. coal. The probta-m is  ^still farther complicated by the. fact  that in this country Uieic aie evteu-  sive deposile of true lignite, that is,  a brown, woody coal, which showr*  no resemblance- .to the black lignite  to which 1 have JcfcrrciL This material is now" mined for fuel. H has  given excellent results<in The utiaiiu-  faefcure of producer gas, and it seems  probable, therefore, that it will i be  more extensively developed in the  future, and that the two classes of  coal will i0-ne into. compfV^'-ion on  th" open ma i ket.  In I hut event    it. will be necessary  to distinguish    between      these    two  ������������������*���������*��������� '   present time to define these .terms accurately, since tlie coals have not  been studied,closely enough ,to deter-,  mine the exact limits of each group.  The two groups have, however, contain broad cliaracoeiistics, which, for  the present,.serve to distinguish them,  from each' ."other, and from bituminous coal. '  Sub-Bituminous Coal.  The name is applied   to the    ola/ss  next higher lhau lignite and     below  bituminous     coal.      It is commonly  known   as '-lignite,"  "lignite coal,''  "black lignite,"     blown coal,"   etc  It is generally    black    and    shining,  closely  resembling  bituminous   coal,  but it  weathers  more rapidly on ex-  posuie and lacks the prismatic structure, which   is such .a characteristic  feature ox bituminous coal.   Its calorific value'is generally less ,bluui   that  of bituminous coal and grcatci   than  flint  of    ligiiiuc.        in   'iiuc   samples  tins class " of coal usu>ally shows   u  heavier    percentage of  moisture than  does    bituminous    coal,  anil a   very  much smaller petcen/tagie lliau Lignite  ibut   itue anijoimt    is variable.     Cou-  tiary to general  opinion,  it  is   probable that the general  percentage   of  moisture cannot 'be depended upou. to  'distinguish  the su|������-bituiniinous   from  the adjacent classes.     The localities  in which this suib-^bituminous coal ���������is  found include.     Texas,    New Mexico,  Montana,   Idaho,  Washington,  Oregon  California,   Wyoming, Utah and   Colorado.

As set  out in an attractively worded circular addressed , to a number of local  ii.eichants, all that is asked in return for this "fiee" set of books is  a brief personal endorsement -c|f the  \olumcs.  .Naturally, in many instances, the  "prominent- business man" would be  pleased to receive the free books and  duly promised t������ give them all kinds  of gl'vwing personal endorsements by  way of a b'ertisoiiieni in leturn. lor  tl-.c gift of  the books.  lint, instead of the expected books  the prominent business man was gm-  er.:lly visited a few days later by a  smooth-tongued representative of the  publisher.':, who glibly explained that  all hough these \olumes were given  away free of all cost to the recipient  (lie .publishers could not ifford :���������;  hind them in a maimer worthy of  such a handsome library as that possessed by "tlie prominent businessman." . Their line of talk generally  concluded with a statement something like this.  "Now, you could not think of placing, such jdie-aply .bound volumes alc"^  with the handsomely bound vpjnines  in your fine library.

This extra charge is of course only to,  co\er the cost ot binding, etc."  This plausable argument led a con-  sideraiblc mini tier of local people to  pay Uie extra price for tlie binding,  which, wnen they received the books  and compared them wilh standard  sets which could be obtained in local  [URIC IS  IfOR lilt NORTH  Ycsterda> a barge of lumber ariiv-  ed from New Westminster, and is being stowed awa\ on the- big sUain-  "ship Elleric, which is l>ing al the  "T" wharf loading sacU'd coal.

Uf DAILY LEDGER  Published   every   day   except Sunday  -BY���������  HIE  DAILY LEDGER COMPANY.  OFFICE AT LADYSMITH.  SUBSCRIPTION.  One  Year  (In. advance)  _   $5.00  tine Month  -   50 cents  THURSDAY  July 5,  190(1  ELECTKIC  LIGHTS.  The  report  of  Col.  Tracy, as  published    yesteulay,   shows  that    while  the cost, of    installation ������.f an  dee  trie    light plant    in      Ladysnulh   t.  somewhat heaticr   tJian  some expect  ed,  this  drawback  is  moie  than compensated foi   hy    Ihc assurance    that  plenty of water is obtainable.  From the time electtic lights weie  (itsl talked of lor Ladysmith, Iheie  has nevei been any serious objection  on 1 Le part of the ratepaycis lo the  proposal, and had at been known  *Uial it is possible to utilise walei  foi power purposes, jt is altogether  likely the'by-law wliicJi was subinil-  IhmI last year would not have ,\pcn defeated. This year there have been  two votcc la!-en of the ratepaycis,  the result of which ansveied two  -questions in the allirmativic, "Docs  Ladysmith want lights''" and "Shall  the city own same if installed?"  Evidently the citizens believe in a  muiucipally-ownod plant, and they  also believe that a plant is a necessity, therefore, the iqucstion bas ie-  solvet] itself into one of cost of installation. When fhe 'question of  putting in a steam' plant was discussed, in was estimated that *>20.-  OOd would install same. This is cf n-  ceded, however, to have been as low  ���������an estimate as could possibly be  made, and, an everyone is aw aie,  would hate cost the, city much more  duimg the year in running expenses  For i'i3,000, which, as Col. Tiacv  ha*s slated, is a very liberal allowance, Ladysmith may put* in a plant  which will not only be a permanent  investment, but should ,also bo a paying one. Yciy little expense would  he incurred in operation, and the city  would derive a .sufficient revenue from  business houses and residences iQ assure a substantial sinking fund, and  at the same time supply lights at a  very, cheap rate���������as cheap, if not  cheaper���������than (be present cost of  coal oil.  There seems- to be jio leason to  doubt but thai the neoessaiy money  can he .borrowed an fa*>orable terms,  and if so, the probabilities are that  Ladysmith in tho near future will  emeige from the present state ot  darkness into .an up.lo-datc, well  lighted city. This is a question, of  couise, for the ratepaycis to decide.,  but if the .ballots aluvuly cist aie  taken as an indication ol fuluie decisions, it is almost a fotcgone conclusion that, provided favorable  terms, etc., are secured, a money bylaw, if submitted, will be passed by  the ratepayers.
