ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
International Coal and Coke
Compan)*"" Is Making
Good Progress.
Facts and Figures Interesting
to  Shareholders   in
This Business.
The following able description of
the International Coal & Coke company's properties at Coleman, Alta.,
has been received from Mr. W. A.
Harkin, the well known press correspondent. As this company is a
semi-local concern, the article is
published in its entirety for the bene-
li iif the numerous shareholders in
this city:
I'p here, near the portal of the
(.'row's Ncsi I'ass, nature with a lavish hand deposited bituminous coul
measures which for thickness and
quality are  nut  rivalled elsewhere.
The development of the potential
wealth so essential to the economic
progress of a young nation  like the
Dominion dales hack in a relative
suisc   only   yesterday.     Coleman,
where the Dominion colliery of the
International Coal and Coke com
puny is located, 'mil no existence a
year ago ; today it is pulsating witli
life and gives promise of soon becoming the chief centre of the coal
and c.ike industry of the entire district.   Tiie transformation has been
simply short  of marvelous.    The
coal company is rapidly completing
thc installation of a  plant with a
capacity to handle  an   output  of
2,000 tolls of bituminous coal daily.
Since last October not less than 3(1,-
000 tons of coal have been extracted
in the course of development work.
A fortnight hence, even before the
most essential equipment shall have
been installed, the colliery will be
maintaining an output of 500 tons
daily,   it is conservatively estimated
that the production will reach 1,000
tons daily Iiy January 1st next, and
2,000 tons per day, the limit of tlu
plant, by .May or June next.   Thut
' far the output has been sold in advance.   To accommodate the growing trallic the ('. P. II. lias already
built 2J  miles of tracks and sidings
on the coal company's property at
Coleman.   A double battery of 10-1
coke ovens, capable of  producing
140 tons of coke daily, were completed  recently,  and provision lias
heen made-for thc erection of 310
additional io';o ovens at an early
date.    A portion of the coking plant
is now in operation.   It is producing
a superior quality of coke, which
finds a ready market in the British
Columbia smelting centres, where it
is utilised in the reduction of metalliferous ores.
This in outline is the story of the
results i.ccoinplisbed at Coleman in
less thnn 12 months. The company
employs about 300 men, including
mechanics engaged in construction
work. A noteworthy feature is Ihe
fact tbat tbe coal extracted in the
"course of development has thus far
actually paid all costs of develop
ment of the mine.
. The bituminous coal lands acquired by this company extend about
seven miles north aud south on the
strike of thc coal measures, and have
a width of one mile. The greater
length of these coal lands is south of
the railway. So advantageously are
they situated that the main line of
llic Crow's Nest branch of the C. P.
It. passes within 200 yards of the
main e itry of the mine. The scams,
seven in number, run parallel north
and south, and are embraced in an
area less than 700 feet wide. The
crnppings can be plainly traced at
intervals on the surface for two miles
north and five miles south of the
track, all within the limits of the
company's property. These scams
have a westerly dip of about 35 de
grces, and are regular and consistent
and in good condition wherever
tested. With one exception they are
all east of and under that now known
as No. 2, and oo which for the present must of the development bus
been done. No. 1, the most westerly
seam, is about 5 feet in thickness ;
No. 2 is 14 feet; No. 3, which is
opened two miles away to thc southward, is 17 feet; No. 4 is 8 feet, and
No. 5 about 7 feet. A Pittsburg,
Pa., consulting coal mining engineer
lost year estimated the coal in s'gbl
above the water level of the Old Man
river at 04.000,000 tons. The coal
taken out in development is excellent
for steaming purposes, being ahso
lutcly free from impurities. It runs
from (10 to 05 per cent in fixed car
boo, and makes a firm coke of ex
ceptional quality.
Development work is uow  being
concentrated on Nos. 2 and 4 seams.
The main entry and airway driven
on No. 2 seam is now in about 2,200
feet,   This  seam   is very uniform
throughout, averaging about 14 feet
in thickness. Coal has been extracted
from this  working daily since the
commencement of operations.   At a
point 1,000 feet distant from the pit
mouth of the main entry and airway
a crosscut tunnel was driven at the
45degree angle through rock, intersecting No. 3 seam, 150 feet distant,
and encountering No. 4 seam HO feet
further east.   The development  of
No. 3 scam has not yet been undertaken.    An entry and  airway have
been driven south from the crosscut
tunnel along No. 4 seam for a distance of abuut 500 feet.   This scan
is 8 feel iu thickness, possesses a good
roof and bottom, and in the matter
of dip  presents thc same uniform
characteristics of No. 2 seam.   The
entries on  the coal   have  already
opened up a large area of ground.
The mine is being developed on the
stall and pillar system, with  banier
pillars.   Later on the crosscut tunnel
from No, 2 to No. 4 scams will be
extended  further   cast to  interseel
three other- seams.    The fate, '-', 0.
feet from the portal of No. 2 seam,
owing to the  gradual rise   of  the
mountain,  gives a depth of 400 feet
vertically from the surface.   A slope
now being sunk on  No. 2 scum  is
down  400 feet on the pitch of tbe
scam. •• Lifts will be made every 300
feet.   This will provide rooms 300
feet in length, thus affording a rapid
and economical method of devolpp-
ment and extracting, combined with
the utmost safety.    Every  device
known to modern coal mining practice is  being  utilised.    The  main
system of car haulage  will bo compressed air.   Tbe  workings will bo
ventilated by a Capell reversible fan,
16 feet in diameter, driven by a two-
speed 150 h.p. motor, und will furnish   150,000  cubic feet of air per

Steps Taken to Supply Grand
Forks With Such an
Institution.
I!
Prominent   Local    Business
Men Are at Bottom of
Movement.
A movement lias just been started
by several of the prominent business
men in Grand Forks for the purpose
if securing a general hospital for this
city, to meet the requirements of the
ever growing needs of this important
mining, suelting, railway, agricultural and commercial centre. Incorporation pap'rs have been applied for from Victoria, under the
Benevolent Sooii tics Ait, by • th'
following gentlemen as incorporators:
Jeffrey Hammer, H. C. Hanington
Isaac Dinsmore, Harold IC. Wi o !-
land and William I'. Bower. 'It is
nroposed to erect a hospital or purchase the present one, which would
be known as the Grand Forks General Hospital. It is understood the
movers in this enterprise hiive received an offer from Miss Rhodes,
tbe proprietress of the present hospital. If this were purchased it
would, of couse, be enlarged. Nothing definite will be decided upon,
however, until the incorporation
papers shall have been received. In
the meantime a subscription list will
be circulated to enable the promoters
an cpp'irtui i y of knowing what
amount would be available to carry
the movement to a successful termination.

minute. This fan now being installed
ou No. 2 seam on the surface will be
in operation about October 1st, enabling the mine forthwith to maintain an output of 5(10 tons of coal
daily.
The broad nnd comprehensive policy of thc company is evidenced by
tl.e large expenditure incurred in the
erection and equipment of the surface works, including the power
house und tipple, all of which arc in
an advanced stage 'of completion.
These works arc situated north of the
Old Man river and alongside the
main line of the railway. Thc power
house, 80x82 feet, is a fireproof
stone structure, it contains six linn-
el's, each of 125 h.p. capacity, fur
nislied by the Erie City Iron works,
of Eric City, Pa. The cngiites, two
in number, arc each of 400 h.p; capacity. They were built by the
Phoenix Iron Co., of Meudsvillc, Pa.
The engines are directly connected
with two 250 kilowatt electric generators (equivalent to 335 h.p. each),
supplied by the Wes'inghouse Electric Co., of Pittsburg, Pa. These
generators will furnish the electrical
nrretit for the various motors to
pcnite the fan, tipple, lurries, ihe
machine shop and for the lighting
of the town of Coleman. Other machinery equipment comprises a Canadian Hand drill, compressor of
1,000 pounds pressure for the purpose of furnishing air for the car
haulage system throughout the
mines. This machine compresses
air at the rite nf 750 cubic feet per
minute,
The tipple, situated alongside the
railway track and 200 yards distant
from tho colliery, is the largest affair
of the kind in the Crow's Nest district. It liasii handling and storage
capacity of 4,000 tons daily. A
steam hoist of 100 h.p. capacity,
built by the Jenskes Machine Co.,
of Sherbrooke, Que., will hoist the
cars from the yard In a self-dumping
cage 80 feel lo thc toji of the tipple.
Tiie coal, after passing over a series
of screens, falls upon two picking
tallies, with a capacity of 100 tons
each per hour and driven by a 25
h.p. motor. Falling by gravity, it
is automatically screened and delivered ill bins in the lower floor of the
tipple, ready for shipment by rail.
The slack coal, previously separated,
is delivered into oilier bins, whence
it falls into the lurries (cars), which
in turn convey it and automatically
dump it into the coke ovens, a short
distance away. The tipple has a
capacity of 2,000 tuns every 10 hours,.
If worked full time it will be ample
to handle the output of the mine for
several years to come. The lurries
which convey thc slack coal to the
coke ovens are operated byeleclricilv.
The loading of the railway box ears
will be effected by means of an Ot-
tuniwa box car loader, which is located in front of the tipple ami alongside the railway (rack. This novel
device is a great labor saver and prevents breakage of tbe coal.
The company  have also erected
machine, blacksmith and woodworking shops. Power is furnished
by a 25 h.p. motor.
At the present rate nf development
Culeman is destined to become one
ofthe largest and must prosperous
towns on the Crow's Nest railway.
The ('. P. I{. is an enormous .consumer of coal, nnd the wants of
thousands of Bottlers on the prairies,
for purely domestic purposes, are
growing apace and arc likely soon to
tax the productive capacity of many
coal mines. A considerable proportion of the output will be converted
into coke, for which a ready market
is already assured, not only in the
smelter towns of British Columbia,
but among leading American smelting centres like Grnit Falls, Helena,
Butte and A.iacnuda. The market
is practically unlimited, especially
as Canadian coke is of the highest
standard of quality, and can bo sold
as cheaply as western American coke
nf inferior grade ; moreover the mileage to Montana is not greater than
to Boundary smelling points. The
plant and equipment; as well as the
economical method of mining now in
vogue at Coleman, will absolutely
enable Coleman eoal and coke lo
meet all competitors in the western
market, on both sides of the line.
The president of the International
Coul and Coke company is Mt. A. C.
Flumerfelt, n capitalist of Victoria,
li. C. Mr. Flumerfelt has lung been
a prominent factor in the economic
development of the west. He is
largely interested in the mining,
smelting and lumbering industries.
His decision In engage in coal mining wns only reached after a careful
sludy of ihe possibilities of the industry. Mr. Flumerfelt is president
of the British America Trust company, and a director of the Eastern
Townships bank, one of the solid
financial banking institutions of eastern Canada. The general manager
and vice-president of the Coal company is II. N. Galer, who possesses
exceptional executive ability and a
capacity for hard w'ork. Mr. Galer,
two months ago, resigned the position of assistant general malinger of
the Granby Consolidated Mining.

WHY GO HAST
Over the sun-burncil, stigo brush
nnd alkali plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, coul
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Luke City, (lien-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs arid Denver enroute .to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and iilTord'n choice of live
distinct routes nf travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair ears,
standard and tourist sleepers, a | cr-
fect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion em's,
each ill charge nf a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant nnd inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can bo found
than is provided by these excursions.

A radical change from old methods and prices lias been made by
theToronto Daily News. The eyes
of the nowspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during whioh time several
departures have bein made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. Tbis latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tlie.future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such 11 reduction in price.
But just ns the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will, secure a vast und 'ever-increasing circulation, bused not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
be paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club theToronto
News with our own paper at 82.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our seini-weeklv giving you all
tiie homo and district news, antl
the big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touoh with events nil over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper lirst, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
