FOUNDRY IS BUSY
A new sixteen-foot lathe for making wooden pulleys, gears, and articles of a similar nature, has just been
installed in the pattern shop of the
Boundary Iron Works. Tho pro-

from Greenwood and Boundary
Falls. The Granby patterns, which
were sent to the Union Iron Works
in Spokane after the fire, are begin'

employed.
NEWS OF THE CITY
shafts have been sunk, the deepest to
200 feet, which will greatly facilitate
the extraction, and the coal production is now ready to keep apace with
the growth of the region expected hy

Recent   Developments   of
Western Coal Industry
If the development oi the coal industry is to be taken as indicative of
the prosperity and development of a
region, then Western Canada is making almost unprecedented strides.
M r. T. C. Denis, of the geological survey, has just returned to Ottawa from
a visit through the princpal western
coal fields of the mainland, and he reports that everywhere coal mining is
going ahead at a tremendous rate. It
is only a very few years since the only
coal mines worthy of the name operating in Alberta were the Lethbridge
and the Canmore mines. These have
expended into large enterprises, and
many other similar ventures have
since achieved success. There are
now in the provinces of Alberta and
Saskatchewan over twenty well established and well equipped collieries, besides countless smaller mines which
are worked spasmodically to supply
local wants.
Figures speak louder than words.
The records kept by the mines section
of the geological survey show that in
1887 the coal production of the then
Northwest Territories was for that
year 7*4,152 tons, valued at $157,577.
In 1905 the figures for Alberta and
Saskatchewan had attained over 1,-
000,000 tons, representing a value of
over $2,000,000. In other words, in*
eighteen years the production had increased about fourteen fold.
But even at a very greatly increased rate of production, the question of
exhaustion of the fossil fuel is yet in
a future exceedingly re-note, for it has
lieen calculated that the coal-bearing
region of the great plain provinces,
between the international boundary
and the 56th parallel of latitude, has
un area of over 65,000 square miles.
In the vast expanse of country all
the different grades of coal are represented—from a lignite, containing 14
per cent moisture, 36 volatile matter
and 44 per cent fixed carbon, to an
anthracite with as much as 90 per
cent fixed corbon. This variety of
coal allows of each industry to be
suited to a nicoty according to its requirements, and coals of superior quality may be found for steam-raising,
blacksmithing, coke manufacture and
domestic use.
One of the features of the coal industry of Alberta iu 1906 has been
the inauguration of uew methods of
mining in the Edmonton region.
Heretofore the coal for the use of the
district was mined by means of tunnels driven on the coal seams which
outcrops on the steep and high banks
of the Saskatchewan; this coal was
then shipped by means of scows. But
with the growth of the region these
means were thought inadequate, and
*  within the last three months three
the market is attended with the production of a very large proportion of
coal dust. After a long series of ex-
puriements as to the best means of
utilizing tin's dust, the coal company
is nt present erecting a very complete
nu I up-to-date briquetted plant, and
it is expected that within a few
months an excellent fuel, new to Canada, will be placed on the market in
the form of 'anthracite coal dust bri-
quettas.'
On the mainland of Biitish Columbia the coal industry has not been less
active. It ia true that in 1906 the
only producing company besides the
Vancouver Island collieries was the
Crow's Nest Pass company, but preparations were being made in the
Crow's Nest field, in its southern extension and along the line of the Canadian Pacific railway for the establishment of new and important mines.
At present the largest individual
colliery of British Columbia, and of
Western Oanada for that matter, is
the Coal Creek colliery of the Crow's
Nest Coal eompany, which can handle
4,000 tons of coal in a day of ten
hours.
Over and above all the producing
fields, there are yet in these provinces
vast tracts, underlaid by incalculable
quantities of coal, which are waiting
the advent of the railraod to be developed and to become important producers; und Mr. Denis believes that,
judging from all appearances, they
will not have to wait very long.

About fifteen couples from this
city attended the masquerade ball in
Danville last night. Both tbe prizes
were awarded to parties from this
side of the international boundary
line. Miss Doland, in the guise of
an heiress, was awarded the first prize
for the best lady's costume, and Geo.
Taylor, who masqueraded as a Hindoo, got the first prize for gentlemen.
Everybody report having had a good
time.
Invitations have been issued for
the marriage of Allan D. McMillan,
of this city, and Miss Maude Dixon,
of Greenwood. The ceremony will
take place on the nineteenth of December, at the home of the bride's
parents in Greenwood. The couple
will be at home in this city after the
first of January.
The Hindoo question, which is at
the present time a rather serious proposition, had a thorough airing ut a
public meeting lust Wednesday night.
Quite a number of citizens were present to "learn something." At the
close of the meeting, however, they
were as far from a solution of the problem as when they had come. A million or more of the swarthy tribe of
East India, had been dumped with
reckless prodigality on our very front
porch und something hud to be done.
The question of the meeting was,
what should be done with these men,
and the idea of a buck shipment either
by the box car route or Pulman sleeper was in the majority. It was final
ly thought best to postpone action
until Monday night, when the city
council could possibly solve- the pro-
lem at a short session.
The work of erecting the new steel
furnace-room structure at the Granby smelter was started yesterday by
the Grand Forks Steel Structural
Works. The work of preparing the
material for this building has been
going on at the steel works for the
past two months, and the matter of
assembling and putting it together
will not take long.

Up to the present date 112,000 immigrants, booked to settle in Canada,
have landed at the port of Quebec.
The immigration t'.iis season by far
surpasses all others for the quality as
well as the quantity of new settlers.
The Solvation Army brought out no
less than 15,000, foi whom they have
secured positions and homes in advance, and next year the immigration
branch of this institution expects to
bring to Canada 25,000 settlers and
get them positions and homes which
will be secured for them by the officers during the coming winter.

The coal situation ut Moose Jaw remains unchanged. The timely ar

stock of coal expected, and the recent

.Comparatively little have been
heard about radium this year and
practically nothing new has been
published about it. This is largely
due to the fact that the cost of the
salt is almost prohibitive and that
the experiments to dute, while interesting, have proven little or nothing
as to the actual value nf the element
The Academy nf medicine in Vienna
is pglylilitthiiig ;i hospital forthe purpose ot employing radium in many
ways ns a therapeutic "gent. The
Austrian government hns recently
placed nt the disposition of the Academy lii.OOO kilos of radium-hearing ore from .foaehimsthal which
has resulted iti the production of radium yaliitjd nt SI.l'OO.OOO, according In the prices paid for smiill
amounts of the suits nf the element, j
In conjunction with ihe hospital
there will he operated a laboratory
for the preparation nf radium suits.
A pleasing phase of the prosperity
which prevails throughout metal
mining districts is the general and
voluntary advance in wages which
the milling companies are extending
to their employes. While not attributing the movement to excessive
virtue on the purl of the mine owners, it is evident that the miners
recognize it as an incident of fairness |
and as indicative of the attitude of
the companies toward them.
