Last week was a particularly unfortunate one, the C. P. R. with all  their caution having three wrecks. In  addition to the wreck of a silk train on  the prairies a train went over the embankment at Clanwilliarn killing the  engineer and fireman.  But the most serious mishap met  tho westbound passenger No. J)7 at  Spuzzum in the Fraser river canyon.  Two engines were pulling-the train  through heavy snow when they left  the track and plunged into the Fraser  taking four cars with them,' one of  which was a colonist sleeper.  Both engineers were killed, but the  lirenien'miraculouslyescaped. Friday's  Province says:  "The train was one made up at  Medicine Hat on Wednesday night to  take the place of the Pacific express  bound foi- Vancouver which' was delayed by storms in Manitoba. The  wrecked train would therefore not  contain any through passengers.  . "The last message from North Bend  stated that the baggage, mail, express  and colonist cars all followed the engines into the river, and the remainder  of the coaches were held back by the  dining car. From the reading of an early message there is some doubt about  the colonist car having actually gone  into the water.  "Immediately upon the receipt of the  news this afternoon, a wrecking train  was made upin the yards of the C.P.R.  Drs. Weld anel Protcor and four nurses  were aboard and a complete outfit of  surgical appliances was taken. The  train will make fast time and should  arrive at North Bend before 5:30 this  afternoon.  "L.YTEK.  At 3:35 this afternoon a message  was received containing the information that several of the passengers  held succumbed to their injuries.

X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  Greenwood, Jan. 11.���������The fourth  general meeting of members of the  western branch of the Canadian Mining Institute, ill be held on Monday  in Greenwood.  This meeting was the annual general meeting for the election of chairman and members of council of the  branch for the ensuing year.  The only nomination for chairman  received by the secretary is that of  Thomas Kiddie, manager of the Le  Roi Mining Company's smelting works  at Northport.  The council of the branch includes  all western members of the council of  the institne, ex-nfficio, the president  and secretary of the branch, and  twelve members to be elected by  ballot. With the object of making  the incoming council as fully representative of the various parts of the  province as practicable, the present  council has recommended that the  twelve" members to be elected be  chosen from those shown on the ballot  paper. ������  Among other business to be transacted is the consideration of a motion to  provide for the inclusion as ex-officio  members of its council  the  three last  ;hairmeti    of the  branch,   along  the  lines adopted for the parent institute.  A. recommendation was adopted advocating -that a good display of niin-  erals-which will   effectively  advertise  ti-icts concerned be sent  to the  X  X  Xi  ������ !  ������x\  % I the (li.-  Si!  ^; Alaska-Yukon-Pacific    exposition    at  As several parties about Hedley and  Keremeos are connected with the  Carbou Hill Coal and Coke Co. the  following sketch - taken from the  Northwest Mining News will prove of  interest. Mr. Geo. S. Loudon, of Keremeos, is now in the east, and it is  said that he is making arrangements  for disposal of a large block of stock  in Montreal, Winnipeg .and other  points.   The News says :  "Someone recognized as an authority has made an estimate of the coal resources of Pennsylvania and predicts  that they will be entirely exhausted  before the end of the present century."  The above clipping from an   eastern  exchange is interesting not only from  its bearing on the problems to be met.  by future generations, but in its application to the areas and  values of the  world's coal fields not embraced by the  anthracite products of Pennsylvania.  To attempt an analysis of the pi ob-  ems    involved,   generations     hence,  when the world's coal supplies have  been exhausted, would be worse  than  folly.   As well try to show the condi-  tfons existent when   all timber areas  are   destroyed,  with this difference,  however, wise laws, properly enforced,  can  be  made  to  protect,  foster and  replenish   the timber lands,  but the  most sanguine, optimistic    scientist,  living his dreams of the possibilities of  a prolific Nature and  the persistency  of   human     accomplishment,   would  hardly dare predict a natural  or artificial replenishing   of our coal fields,  once they are exhausted.  We, of the present day, are not so  much interested in the problems of  generations yet unborn as .in those  presented by our every day desires  and necessities, arid coal, being a  necessity, becomes at once one of our  every day problems ; this applies in its  fullest sense to the Pacific Northwest,  where the marvellous growth, the  rapid concentration of population, the  enormous increase, in railroad mileage,  and the development in mining and  manufacturing interests makes the  question of coal supply a vital one.  The use of Pennsylvania anthracite  or, in fact, any eastern coal, is for obvious reasons prohibitive. Western  Washington, while showing extensive  coal-areas, has her own markets, and  the long haul over the Cascades makes  her output expensive. The product of  the Roslyn mines is practically off the  market, due to the increased consumption by the Northern Pacific railroad,  and, therefore, eastern and central  Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana must turn to their logical base of  coal supply, southeastern British Columbia and south western Alberta.  The area of bituminous coal lands in  western Canada is practically limited  to this district and the Peace River  districts in northern British Columbia.  Large deposits of lignitic coals are  found in Alberta, Manitoba and  Saskatchewan, but lignitic coals are  not desirable for industrial or railway  use, and previous to the opening up of  the Crows Neot district, in southern  Alberta, the Canadian Pacific was importing bituminous coals from Kentucky and Ohio.  If we stop to consider that there are  11 railroads entering or now building  into Spokane alone, and that the rapid  increase in population, not only in  Spokane but in the contiguous territory, is tremendously increasing the  demand for coal, and the hundreds of  miles of territory in every direction  from Alberta that are absolutely dependent upon this district for fuel, we  can comprehend, in a measure, the  immense value of this treasure house '  of coal. ' ,  That Has Been Shown Up on  the Kingston.  DRIFT STILL LJLYINY IT BARE.  Metropolitan Also Improving.-^Shaft' is  down 47 feet.'���������New Ore Body Located in Cross-cut:  On Saturday last the Gazette paid a  visit to the Kingston and by the  kindness of superintendent H. C.  Pollock was enabled to see the workings.  The first andchief point of ��������� interest  was the tunnel which at the .time of  last visit was heading for the , dike.  The line of contact witli the dike was  plainly marked and the dike where  cut acress was about six feet wide.  On the other side of it was plainly- to  be seen the ore body, which consists  of sedimentary rock well mineralized  with arsenopyrite.  A drift has been run along the .contact between.the dyke and the sedi-  nientar-ies either way from the crosscut tunnel for a total length of about  forty-feet' and they are still working  on it. The drift is partly in the dike,  but one side of it cuts the ore body,  all the way from which a hard sampling is given it.and it is very pleasing to learn that pay values are there  as well as the great quantity that is  every day being proved. The winter-  thus far has. been very favorable for  workirig here, little or no inconvenience being experienced from bad air  although the face of the drift is now a  long .way from the mouth of the  tunnel.  On the Metropolitan although surface prospecting was discontinued  several weeks ago on account of the  snow and the severe cold, work in the  shaft has gone on steadilv. This is  now down 47 feet. At a depth of 28  feet a short crosscut was run for nine  feet proving that width of ore at that  point. Again at 47 feet another crosscut has been driven for 12 feet in ore  and is being continued. In this a new  find was made of fine looking ore,  something different in character from  that formerly met although they had  not had time to obtain returns from it.  This new find appears to be extensive,  from work already done, but it will  take time to determine accuiately or  even approximately the extent of the  ore body.   ~ov-   ORE SAMPLES AT   A. Y.  P.  (Palmer Mountain Piospcctw)  Henry Bahrs, the same optomistic,  impulsive, genial Henry   Bahrs  as of  old, blew in last   wee*k, and his very  presence and reassuring,  encouraging  voice, raised the spirit of  the camp  many degrees.     If there  were  more  like, him, ready to put their shoulder  to the wheel,  never discourage  over-  disappointments,  never knocked out  by failure, always up and  doing,   the  camp would be livelier than it  is,   and  there would be incomes from the. mineral   deposits that surely  never will  come out of the ground unaided.    Mr.  Bahrs is an aggressive, energetic, pushing individual, and   the word quit is  not in his vocabulary.     Obstacles are  only incidents to be overcome, and he  drills as enthusiastically, if   not more  so, in dull times as when everything is ,  flourishing.   He has unbounded confidence in this part of Okanagan county.  He has  studied  the country,  knows  what it contains in the way of mineral,   .,  and feels  that fortunes are here  for  those who will go after them. At times  he drifts to other fields.    He has traveled far and has seen much in old Mexico, he has visited the  boom camps of  Nevada,    and examined  the mineral  fields of California, yet positively  and  earnestly; declares that in all his  wan-',  derings he has never yet found a country where the evidence of mineral was  so conspicuously pronounced as on Palmer mountain     It is  that  faith   that  steers him back to  Okanagan,  and if  the opportunity ever comes to him  to  carry out  his  plans  he  will  make a  mine in this vicinity.  Mr. Bahrs has clone much for this  country in the past, and will do more  for it in the future, if he lives nnd has  his health. He believes in its future  because he knows what he knows. He  will keep hammering away, and some  time he will win, for preseverance  knows not failure. Hi> breezy presence does much to prop up drooping  spirits, and his late visit put courage  in some who were faltering. It was  good to see him, and hear him praise  the land in which he lived .-o long, and  for which he is doing yeoman service.  He has friends here who trust he may '  be able yet to realize his hopesin making a mine, and that the mine making  may result in a fat bank balance to  his credit.  What Washington State is Going  to do  by Way of a Mineral Display.  POOR LO HAS LITTLE ACCOUNT  Going After Johnny  Bull for  Settlement  Another factor which will   serve  Concluded on Putce Four.  to  Those who have in hand the collection'of a mineral display for the A. Y.  P. at Seattle next summer will find  the following extract from the Northwest Mining News of interest as.showing what Washington state is going  to do.    The News   says:  "In the exhibit of mineral resources  of the State of Washington at the  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition,  something entirely new will be undertaken. It has been the custom to show  fancy picked samples ;6f mineral ore  at expositions, and while this has added to the beauty of the display it has  prevented interested parties from securing reliable data.  "In the Washington display at the  1909 fair there will be no picked  samples exhibited and no mining company will be allowed to exhibit its  ore unless _ the property has established its right to the claim of a  legitimate mining proposition. In each  display from one hundred to five hundred pounds of ore will be shown, giving the average of the ledge. Where  high-grade ore has been found thisAvill  be shown with the other samples from  the ledge. With each display of ore  sajnples of the hanging wall and foot  wall will be exhibited in order that  mining men may be able to know the  country formation in which the ledge  is located.  "With each exhibit will be a statement giving the name of the owner of  Brantfoi-d, Ont., Jan. 14.���������A deputation of Six Nation Indian Chiefs has  gone to Ottawa to press a claim for  the sum of $150,000, which was invested by the impelial authorities in  the year 183-1 in the Grand River Navigation company. The money belonged to the Six Nations, and the  investment turned out to be a total  loss. The decendants of the chiefs  whose money it was said was wasted  in the early days now claim the  amount as rightfully theirs. The case  may ultimately go to the courts.  the   property,    location   by   district;  amount of development work done and  Anchor ice put the Bonnington  Falls power plant out of business and  as tl result the mines and smelters of  Rossland and the Boundary were,  closed down for several clays,  the extent of the ledge as shown by  the development work and average assays secured from the rock.  "This statement will be prepared by  the state commissioner in charge of the  preparation of the mining exhibit and  will be compiled from personal inspection of the property.  "In addition to gold, silver, copper  and galena ores, samples will be shown  of lead, molybdenum, clay, building  rock, coal, cement deposits, marble,  talc and infusorial earth. A working  model cement idaut will be used to  demonstrate the quality of the cement  deposits and two working model coal  mines will bo used to demonstrate the  different methods of coal mining in  Washington.  "The mining building is practically  completed and the greater part of the  exhibit has already been collected and  is being assembled. THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE, JANUARY 21, 1909.

A great deal of criticism that  has    been  called  forth  by   an  order from  the   Ontario   Education department to the effect  that the "u" is to be retained in  the spelling  of  such   words  as  "honor" and "favor" in all textbooks    issued   for   use  in the  public schools of that province,  has shown a petty  spirit that  in    many    instances    does  but  little credit  to  the  critics.    To  begin  with, the order given  by  Dr.  Seath  has been  misrepresented, for he did not lay down  any arbitrary rule in  the matter, and conveyed no   intention  of dictating  to  the  people  of  Ontario how they  should  spell  such words.    All he sought was  to have some semblance of uniformity, which could  never be  attained  by the authorization  of     text-books     compiled'   by  different authors who  spell differently; and the view expressed  by Dr. Seath, is no  more  than  those who know him best and  are in a position  to  appreciate  his    scholarship    and    general  worth,  would  expect    of  him.  He spoke  of  the  difference  in  spelling  in   vogue  in  England  and United States   and  merely  expressed in a practical way his  opinion of the advisability of  Canadians following  the  English   method.     To  have  taken  any other ground would in our  opinion have been illogical, unwarranted     and     wrong     for  various reasons   every one  of  which is or   should be  obvious.  The  history  of a  language  is  after all only the history of the  people  who  speak it,  and for  philological reasons it would be  and has been a mistake to allow  the    spelling  of any word   to  change   to    an    extent   which  would  obscure that   historical  evidence.     Almost all the derivative words from the  Latin  that  are  to   be found   in   the  English language did not  come  in through the Roman   occupation at all,   but came  into  our  language through the Norman,  and the "u"  in  such  words as  are mentioned, shows this fact.  Dr. John Seath as an authority  on English  has few  equals in  President L. W. Hill, of the  Great Northern reiterates the  intention of his company to  complete to the coast. Interviewed at Winnipeg he pointed  out the large sums recently expended both at Winnipeg and  Vancouver for the purchase of  terminal facilities. People in  the Similkameen have no doubt  whatever as to the intention to  build. The one thing that is  troubling them is the rate of  progress. .

L. C. Wynne Tells What He  Thinks of  Similkameen Placers.  Canada has a staunch champion in the London Standard.  It does not think the interests  of the Dominion have been protected in the neAV AvaterAvays  treaty now pending ratification  betAveen Great Britain and the  United States, its contention being that it is obviously unfair  that Canadian suitors shall be  compelled to submit to the decision of a joint commission,  while United States suitors Avill  find a court of appeal in their  Senate. The Standard adds:  "The day for concessions to the  United States or any other nation has passed away." These  sentiments from one of the  leading British Newspapers "will  be very gratifying to the people  of Canada.���������Colomist.  PROSPEROUS CANADA  Washington, Jan 4.���������Canadians are  accumulating money faster than the  banks and business men can dispose  of it in profitable investments, declares Consul Seyfert, commenting' on  a remarkable condition in Canada's  financial affairs, ��������� as reflected in the  October bank statement issued from  Ottawa. Bank deposits in Canada  during October increased $11,302,879,  while the business of the country absorbed in current and call loans only  $3,322,014.  (Rossland Miner.)  L. C. Wynne, M. E., spent three  years in the Similkameen, valley and  while there made examinations of the  placer sections there. - He thinks that  there are areas there which offer aiming advantages for dredging operations. In speaking about dredging in  the. Similkameen valley he said:  "Since the clays of the first gold rush  into the Siniilkaineen valley, following  the earlier discovery of placers on the.  Fraser river, placer mining has been  carried on. to some extent in several  parts of the valley. There have been  a few attempts to work deposits of  gravel above Princeton hydraulicly.  The "Vermillion .Forks M.& D. Co.  spent considerable money at a point  about four miles above Princeton on a  hydraulic proposition, but the venture  was not a financial success. Water  for hydraulicing was. not sufficient,  and the isolated position with regard  to source of supplies helped to make  the work too costly. The values in  the gravel are supposed to have been  about 25c per cubic yard in the poorest parts.  "At Asbnola, higher up the river,  Capt. Scott (a retired sea captain),  operating for the Anglo Ame rican Co.  attempted to hydraulic a large bank,  bringing water from Whipsaw creek,  for the purpose, but a complete lack  of knowledge rendered this enterprise  a. failure.  "At many points along both the Similkameen and Tulanieen rivers there  are large flats, wliich, provided they  carry sufficient values, would be ideal  locations for a modern paccock dredge.  "There is abundant acreage, and  a dredge working out one fiat could,  with very little expense, be moved up  the river to another. The ground appears to be free from large boulders  and buried tree stumps, which often  prove a serious obstacle to paddock  dredging.  "Water sufficient for a dredge could  always be obtained from the river it-  sejf, either by pumping or by fiuining.  Fuel can be obtained at the collieries  at Prineeton at $2.50 a ton. This is a  lignitic coal (classed by the U. S. Geo.

"On portions of the flat' above the  town of Princeton, on the Tulanieen,  just above its junction with the Similkameen, considerable placer mining has been done. The ground was  worked by Avhite miners in the early  days and reworked more' recently by  Chinamen.  "It is an acknowledged rule in dredging that ground worked /over by  Avhites and Chinese will pay to .work  by a dredge, the expenses of dredging  being so much less and the saving of  gold so far more complete.  "Dredges in the Oroville districts of  California can be operated at a, cost of  about 8c per cubic yard, and there is  every reason to suppose that dredging  in the Similkameen could be carried  on at a cost of about 12c to 15c. Any  ground, therefore, running 20c per  yard would pay handsomely.  "All these flats are at present occupied as farm lands, chiefly raising hay.  The experience of California dredging  has shown, however, that a dredge  leaves the land in better condition for  farming than before. By careful working the gravel is all replaced as before  and the top soil also replaced.  'The outlay necessary to prove these  flats would not be excessive. One pit  per acre would have to be sunk.  "In addition to the'river flats there  are also considerable stretches of  actual beds of both Tulanieen and  Similkameen rivers Avhich could be  dredged with every prospect of success.

Neil McLeod, who left here about  two weeks ago to Avork on the C.P.R.  tunnel at Field, has had rather hard  luck. Not taking sufficient precaution  to clothe himself Avarrn enough for the  trip he had his eard badly frozen going  out, and when he reached his destination wps unable to secure employment.  Last issue of the' Penticton Press  came to hand in shape which suggested that the devil Avas ' having one on  the boss. The paper was neatly tied  up Avith a piece of baby ribbon and a  paragraph intimated that the boss had  been married in Vancouver a couple  of days befoie. The Gazette extends  congratulations.  H. W. Yates left on Thursday morning for Cobalt, Out., to try his luck in  that mining camp. The tonnage in  Cobalt camp last year Avas only a fe\v  tons over 25000 or ,i trifle more than  the half of what the. Nickle Plate  group at Hedley, alone, mined and  milled in the same time, but of course  if Harry hits'anything there it Avon't  take so much of it to count,' for the  Cobalt output in values lan over five  millions.  The Golden Zone Murine Co. are  getting along nicely with the completion of their organization, and prospects are good for starting work in the  shaft very shortly. It is the intention  to put the shaft down 200 feet at once  and meanwhile with the abundant  supyly of surface ore at hand the five-  stamp mill will be started as soon as  the water supply is sufficient. The  present' oear bids fair to be a good  oue for this company.  As an evidence thst"'track-laying is  soon to begin some local papers^are  pointing to the fact that the steel has  been ordered for the V. V. & E. up the  Similkameen valley. Why bless your  heart, it is now over tAvo years ago  that all the steel-necessary(to lay track  to Princeton was piled up in.the material yard near Midway, but that  didn't prevent them from yanking it  all away again in the fall of 1907 to lay  track in the Crow's nest.  Among the 1909 calendars to reach  this ' office, a very pretty pair was  received this week from J. A. Schubert's Supply Stores. One is a beautiful landscape painting by Lamasure  entitled "A Blue Ridge. Trail" descrip  tive of Virginian woodland scenery.  The other is a rural scene by the Parisian Artist Benlure representing a  flock of chickens painted in most life  like attitudes with" natural restful  coloring.  There has been a great deal of kicking about express charge's between  Pentic-ton aud Hedley. It seems that  Welby on his end of the route has  laid down a rule that no parcel no  matter how small or how light must  be subject to a charge of 35 cents to  lay it down at Keremeos. Then the  stage between Keremeos and Hedley  has a minimum parcel rate of 25 cents,  which is not uncommon or out of the  way, but when added to 35 cents makes  the aggregate charge on a parcel  weighing less than a pound somewhat  of a luxury. Business houses in the  cities not understanding conditions  here in the interior show very little  sense in transmitting by express, parcels that should be sent through the  mails. There is a. tendency on the  ���������part of some to jump the express  agent here, but there is no need for  that. He is bound to bring forward  whatever Welby delivers to him at  Keremeos and cannot pick and choose  what parcels he thinks customers in  Hedley would accept and what they  Avould not. Tlie more prudent plan  would be to take your medicine and  pay the shot Avithout undue squealing,  but start in on an educative campaign  Avith business'houses on the outside,  instructing them to lick more postage  and give the express companies the  go-by until we an get rail into Hedley  and cut out the Welby dope.

WHEN COAL IS KING  Continued from Pace One  ���������  incalculably increase the value of  these coal lands is the probable removal of the duty on coal entering the  United States. This measure is now  before the ways and means committee  of congress, and everything points to  a favorable outcome. Thus the last  bar Avi 11 have been removed and "Spp-  , kane and the Inland Empire can take  full advantage of the million of tons  of tlie'finest bituminous coal lying at  their very door. '���������.���������-,  Among the new proper-ties recently  opened up and being developed in   Al-  'berta that of the Carbon   Hill  Coal-. <fc  Coke/Go. deserves more  than  passing  ,   . mention.    .  This property consists of four sections of coal bearing lands, amounting  to 2560 acres, in township 6, range 3,  west of Fifth meridian, in Alberta,  ; Canada, and is located about four and  a half .miles directly south arid three  miles west ot -Bui-mis Station on the  main, line of the Crows Nest branch of  the Canadian Pacific. ..  ' There have been eleven seams stripped, vitryingiii thickness from seven to  fourteen feet, and as the property itself is in the form of a bu'tte, these  seams can be mined from any of the  three sides.  The seams lie horizontal, one above  the other, and, being above the water  level, the necessity for pumping or  hoisting is obviated, and the coal can  be handled by gravity. It is claimed  that due to this peculiarly advantageous situation, that the labor cost will  not exceed 50 cents per- ton, and the  gross cost of mining less than that of  any working property in Canada.  Using the company's engineer's report as a. basis, it is found that there  should be approximately 272,000,000  tons of coal in the eleven seams. This  seems enormous until we stop to consider that the aggregate coal Aviclth of  the eleven seams is one-hundred and  eleven feet, and the coal area estimated  is 1520 acres.  Probably the record lump of coal in  the Canadian coal district Avas broken  out in the 500-foot tunnel that is being  driven on one eleven foot seam.   This  ���������  lump measured   48   cubic   feet   and  ���������  weighed about 3550 pounds, or approx-  ���������  imately one and three-quarter tons.       W  The 500-foot tunnel is now completed   ���������  and the coal,   as is evident from  the  ���������  fact that so   large a lump could be  ���������  broken out, is of the finest quality.  It is stated, that there are large iron    -  deposits on this property", Avhich have  ���������  not as yet, been developed. ���������  It Avould seem that the only essential ���������..  lacking to make this property of enormous value is transportation and to  this end the company has obtained a  charter and franchise.from the. Alberta  government for the Carbon Hill Rail-  Avay Company, running from the nearest point on the Canadian Pacific railroad, to connect Avith this property.-  Also for a continuation of the road to  connect with the projected road of the  Spokane International on the west and  the Great Northern on the southeast.  With the completion of this railroad  to the property, connecting with the  Canadian Pacific and its feeders into  the entire northwest, the installation  of modern machinery for economical  mining, the vast amount of coal on  hand, this property should take its  place as an important factor in the  northwestern coal field.
