AVashington, May 13.���������The AVhite  House Avas the scene . to-day of the  assemblage of many of the most distinguished figures in the political and  industrial life of the United States.  The occasion was the conference by  President-Roosevelt with the Governors of nearly all the States and Ter-  ritorities, to consider the question of  conservation of the country's natural  resources.   ~  It was the utterances of Mr. Carnegie and those who followed him that  the gravity of the problems to be considered were given weight. Two hundred years of coal supply and half that  of iron Avas the prediction of the  famous ironmaster. There Avere ways  by which both the coal and iron supply might be conserved, according to  Mr. Carnegie; by economies in mining  arid in, use, .and the development "of  water transportation, which, he said,  required less of both products.  Dr. I. C. White, of West Virginia,  added expert knowledge and predictions on the subject of coal n nd iron;  in which he predicted the exhaustion  of the Pittsburg coal supply in 93  years and the West Virginian fields in  practically the same time.  Mr. John Mitchell, former head of  the United Mine Workers of America,  estimated that fully 25 per cent, of the  coal _in the mines already developed  had been wasted in mining, and a  much greater percentage in use: Without such waste,'.which he believed  might be overcome, the supply of coal  would last 2,000 instead of 200 years,  as predicted.

' -Oldest established nursery on the mainland of B. C.  New.'interest has been lent to,the  local railway situation by reports of  operations by two. parties of G. P. R.  surveyors under Engineer Kerry. One  party is said to be exploring from  Aspen Grove in the direction of Trout  Creek on Okanagan Lake, .and the  other is working doAvn the Otter.  The problem of getting across the  ranges and doAvn TroW; Creek, would  seem to involve considerable of the  toboggan slide style of railroad ehgiri-  "eering which most railroads are trying  to cut.out nowadays..  Provincial maps shOAV Trout Creek  to bti a short stream about 20 miles in  length, with a difference in'altitude of  2800 feet between the headwaters and  the mouth. That of course is not insuperable and neither is it convenient.  The V. V. & E. overcame as great an  altitude between Molson and Oroville,  but to do so they had 50 or60 miles of  mountain side to SAving back and forth  on if they had wanted to use that  much, but to go doAvn one narrow  creek bottom is an altogether different  problem.  However, there is nothing like investigating. That is the only way to  find out, and with plenty of data to  figure on, the problem becomes easier,  and the result arrived at surerW being correct.  Last Aveek the Gazette had the pleasure of [a chat with Mi*. C. F. Law, avIio  had tiiken a run down to Keremeos,  and remained here for a day on his  way hack.  Mr. Law has given a great deal of  attention during the past tAvo years to  the "development of a group of claims  on Bear creek, Avhieh were located for  him by two Swedes. The claims are  opening out very Avell and are under  bond to the Gran by. Tavo years ago  the provincial government began work  putting, in a wagon road for them,  which has proven of very great service  in opening up the properties. The  work on Bear creek was shut down  temporarily about ten days ago, but  operations, will be resumed in the  course of about four or five weeks.  The road is somewhat out of order and  weather conditions up there just at  present are not favorable to making  the. necessary repairs; besides, supplies  at the mine were running Ioav and as it  is desirable that the road be in shape  before a fresh supply is teamed in, it  was thought an opportune time for  several reasons to shut down temporarily in order to get ready for resuming later.  It is 'now about sixteen years since  -the editor last met Mr. Law. He was  then employed by the government in  obtaining-samples of ore for exhibition  at the World's Fair in Chicago, arid  obtaining information concerning the  various properties through the province. That Avas in the summer of 1892,  when the writer met Mr. Law in Vernon, Avhere he had just returned from  a long trip up to old -man Mclntyre's  Monashee mine on Cherry creek near  the headwaters of the Kettle river  with a load of samples,   which was an  and particularly the portion through  British Columbia.  This he considered due in a great  measure to the fact that G. T. P. stock  Avhieh is mostly held in England is  very widely distributed, and it avus  only to be expected that they Avould.  prefer settling up and developing the  country contiguous to the line of railway-in which their money was invested. The old Grand Trunk, wholly  OAvned in England, has an immense  clientele, and the G. T. P. is considered  the one. thing needed to enhance the  value'of Grand Tiunk stock. Mining  propei ties along the line of-the hcav  raihvay would now find ready buyers  in London, Avhile mining propositions  elsewhere Avould require exceptional  merit to command attention.  Speaking of the loosening out of  British purse strings following the recent money stringency, Mr. Law said  that British money was hoav impatient  for investment and signs.of the incipient boom were not lacking. Mr. LaAv  has seen the British stock exchange in  the throes of some five or six different  booms. He was over there when  Barney Barnato Avas at.the height of  his financial fume, and wild Kaffirs  were all the rage Avith the British investor, and he had seen it in various  lesser booms since that time,  and the  JIM CRONIN LIKES NORTH.  St.   Eugene  Man , Talks of   Silver-lead  Properties on Babine Lake���������The  Coeur d'Alener's Weakness  for   Silver-lead.  Mr. James Cronin, a Avell knoAvn  mining man of Spokane, and his mining superintendent, Mr. Charles Chapman, left last^week* for Hazel ton en  route to the Babine silver-lead district  to resume' development work on the  Dibble group, comprising six claims.  Mr. Cronin will also employ a large  force of men in building trails into the  new- camp, which is situated east of  the Bulkley Valley. He feels very  confident over the future of this recently discovered silver-lead belt, as  the formation is similar to that of the  famous Coeur d' Alene district. Idaho.  On some of the claims he has under  bond the veins can be traced along the  surface for a distance of over 2500 feet.  Their persistence is -regarded as a favorable indication. Certain draAvbaeks  have, however, to be overcome.  "The surface oie. is not clean, but  is adapted for concentration," said Mr.  Cronin to The Province. "It will  likely yield a ton of sixty per cent,  lead from every ton of clean ore. It  is too earlv A-et to estimate the future  similarity of conditions is such that it  of the camp, but the outlook,  to  say  WAS THERE ANOTHER VICTIM?  V. V. & E. Laborers See Corpse  Floating in Similkameen River.  M. J. HENRY,  3010 Westminster Road,      Vancouver.  The "Old Reliable" Shoemaker  SHOES MADE TO ORDER.  SHOE and HARNESS REPAIRING A SPECIALTY  Rear of Shier's Clothing Store.  13  Word came up from No 1 Camp at  lower end of Brushv Bottom that on  Tuesday at 12:30, Italian laborers had  seen a corpse floating down the Similkameen river opposite where they  Avere Avorking. When the story'was  told to Supt. Cunningham he attached  very little credence to it and thought  the men had been mistaken, as there  avus no Avoid of any one having been  drowned up the river.  On making further inquiries of the  men a feAV hours later they Avere very  positive that it Avas a corpse they hud  seen as they Avere sure they had seen  clothing on it Avhieh moved Avith the  action of the Avater in the current.  He sent a note to constable Sproule  advising him (if the 'circumstance, and  the latter went doAvn the river to investigate.  evidence of the thoroughness with  which he discharged the' task allotted  him.    .���������"'..-"  When Mr. Law was gathering that  information in 1892 and. collecting  those samples, lode mining in British  Columbia could scarcely be said to  have begun. There Avas no Rossland  camp';.then; no producing Boundary  district, and Camp McKihiiey, the first  real producer of lode gold, was> then  only in the prospect stage. The total  production of lode mines in British  Columbia in 1892 was $99,999, of which  not a dollar Avas in gold and not a dollar in copper, the whole-production  being made up of $66,935 in silver and  $33,064 iu lead.- Noav it has risen to  $17,481.12 with copper alone over eight  millions and gold alone, over four and  a half millions.  In the strenuous life Avhieh many  have had to live to bring about this  increase in mineral production in this  province, no one class can claim full  credit, and to the prospector, miner,  capitalist and promoter must belong  the honor of bearing a share. As a  promoter Mr. Law has been actively  engaged in many enterprises and has  done his share to interest capital for  the development of the resources of  the province, his field of operations extending from the Yukon to East  Kootenay.  Mr. Luav has just returned from England Avhere he spent several months,  and avus much impressed with the favor shoAvn at present by British iinres-  tors towards Canadian securities. One  thing, iioAvever, Avhieh Avas made very  plain to him so far as preference of  British investors is concerned, was that  while mostly all Canadian securities in  the. shape of bond issues were in favor,  British money was- partial to certain  localities when it came to putting  money into mining or real estate  schemes, and the section that at present has the call is the country along  the line of the Graud Trunk Pacific,  would not surprise him to see very  shortly another outbreak in which  Canada and the more northerly latitudes thereof Avould figure very prominently.  A significant feature pointed out by  him is the amount of travel from Great  Britain at the present time, which is  about tAvo months earlier than usual.  At present the leading hotels of Vancouver and Victoria are thronged with  visitors from England who are men of  means and as a rule it is generally in  July of other years that this class of  travel is in evidence.  While in Hediey Mr. Law met Mr.  F. M. Wells, 'with'whom, in company  \yith Mr. H. C. Pollock, he had been  associated several years in the Koot-  eriays. He was hurrying back to Bear  Creek or he might, have spent a few  days in Camp Hediey and taken a look  over the Pollock group.  the least, is promising."  Mr. Cronin is one of the best known  mining men in the AVest. He has operated in nearly every western state.  He was formerly managing director of  the Canadian Consolidated Mining <fc  Smelting Company, which owns the  War Eagle, Centre. Star and Idaho  mines at Rossland, the Trail smelter  and the St. Eugene mine at Moyie,  one of the greatest silver-lead producers in existence.  INDIAN  DROWNED.  Paul Terabasket Loses Life in Trying  To Ford Similkameen.  NEW ROAD TO STATION.  Route Has Been Well Chosen and Should  Make Good Road���������Right of Way  Now Being Cleared.  Since the station grounds of the V.  V. & E. have been located on Pinto  flat and the present wagon road will  be cut up there Avas considerable speculation as to where the railway company would place the new road which  they will make to take i tsplace.  Last Aveek I. L. Deardorff, road supervisor, in company Avith L. M. Hale,  resident engineer for the V. V. & E.,  went over the. ground and pegged out  the new route, and they have been exceedingly fortunate in their selection,  for the new road to Princeton Avill  have no raihvay crossing; it will join  on to the present Princeton road at a  point Avest of the station grounds, the  distance to that point of junction being nearly one-third less than at present, and having no grade on it as high  as six per cent.  The ncAV road begins at the point  where Haynes Street meets the reservation line and strikes westward across  the loAver flat with a very slight northerly trend so as to meet the foot of the  bench far enough up to give an easy  grade in making the top of the bench,  Avhieh is reached opposite the home  plate on the neAV base-ball diamond.  Then it strikes westerly across the  Pinto flat until it meets the station  grounds, on the northern side and a  little east of the old Pinto cabin. Then  it goes westerly along the north side  of the station grounds until the Princeton road is met.  The entire distance from the end of  Haynes Street to Avhere it joins the  Princeton road is 4,400 feet. A. Pleas-  ance has the job of clearing the right  of Avay on it, Avhieh will be completed  before the end of this week, and on  Monday next the raihvay company  expect to have a gang on it to begin  the grading, and as they intend to  start Avork Avith the raihvay grade  where the old Avagon road noAV run's,  they want to have the neAv one ready  to take, its place.  On Thursday last Paul Terabasket,  living on the reservation across tlie  river, saddled his horse and started for  Hediey. He had been gone some time  when the klootchmen noticed his horse  ���������with ithe saddle on and Paul's coat\tied  on behind. The coat Avas still quite  wet.   ' ��������� ���������' -_; - '.   .......   No one appears to  have seen what  happened and conclusion is that as he  did not reach Hediey the accident had  taken place in crossiug to this side.  While crossing, the horse may have  come in contact Avith- a boulder and  rolled over on its rider, injuring him  to such an extent as to prevent him  from making the shore. In all probability too, the horse being headed for  this side had come across, and later on  had gone back across the stream of its  own accord. This Avould account for  the length of time the horse was'gone  and the Avetness of the coat.  On Sunday the body Avas found fartherdoAvn the river, and Avas buried  on Tuesday in the Indian burial plot  at Hediey.  M. K. RODGERS 1NSTALS PLANT  Hidden Creek Copper-Gold To Be Developed on Large Scale.  ( Vancouver Province)  Mr. M. K. Rodgers, the Avell-known  mining man avIio developed the famous Nickel Plate mine at Hediey, Similkameen district, for the Daly estate, is about to erect a $40,000 power  plant in connection Avith the development of the Hidden Creek, group he  bonded last year and Avhieh is located  at Goose Bay, Observatory Inlet. Two  payments have already been made to  the owners, the Hidden Creek Mining  Company of Vancouver.  The bond is for $135,000, and the  next payment will mature on June, 1.  So certain is the likelihood of the bond  being taken up that Mr. Rodgers has  formed a hew corporation under the  style of the. hidden Creek Copper Co.,  with Mr. Thos. Hodgins of Butte as  president.    The capital is $2,000,000  TAventy men are engaged at development work on the property which has  an ore body said to be 300 feet high  and carrying high values in copper, besides subsidiary values in gold. The  plant Avill be installed this summer  and will include fifteen air drills. The  company will develop its oavh water  poAver which can furnish a supply  equal to 2,000 miners' inches.

Within the past-fortnight the  highest governing bodies of two  of the leading churches; in this  province "have- met to transact  the business .arid consider matters pertain ing to the :��������� work and  aims of each. ..These were the  synod oi: the Presbyterian  church and the Methodist conference. . ,  The smaller details of business which each had in hand  may not be of sufficient general  interest to call for discussion in  the columns of thaseeular press,  but there was one matter in  which the general public are  more or less concerned that  . came somewhat prominently  forward in the deliberations of  "the synod and may have been  considered in conference as  well, for at the time of writing,  no reports are to hand further  than that of the opening session  at which the president and secretary were elected, and- the  work of the conference had'  begun. The subject referred to  which engaged for a  time  the  * attention of the synod was that  of church union between the  Presbyterian, Methodist and  Congregational  bodies.    If the  ��������� Methodist conference lias remained silent upon the question  after tlie synod has aired its  views, the silence cannot be  taken otherwise than indicative oi: a degree of hostility towards the movement, but if  they have considered the subject it is to bo hoped that the  members of conference have  been able to evince a broader  spirit than that which seemed  to actuate several of tlie clerical gentlemen in the synod who  were so ready to throw cold  water upon the views embodied  in the resoluton of llev. J. T.  Ferguson, of Nelson, who  brought the matter forward.  Those  resident   in   the  cities  and  larger towns,    and   unacquainted  with   conditions    obtaining on  the  frontier  where  effort is  often  made  to maintain mission fields,  arc too apt  to permit tlie sectarian shibboleths that dominated their early  religious  training  to  influence  them in opposition to a raove-  ment  that should   be   encouraged instead .of opposed.   Could  these men only see things as do  others Avho {ire laymen resident  on these mission holds and who  fields tactless freaks who'should  have  had guardians appointed  over them, they would possibly  vieAvs on the subject of church union   and both  act and talk  in  a.  manner  less  calculated to remind one of that  old-time clamor, "great is Diana  of the Ephesians."     In thus alluding to some painful incidents  that have come within  the observation.of the Avriter iiv mining camps oi! southern  British  Columbia /.where attempt has  been made'to maintain; mission  fields,   we do hot  wish  to  cast  reflection 'upon many excellent  men who  did; credit to  themselves and   the   church .which  sent them; nevertheless it is a  public duty,   in discussing  this  question .of church  union and  its effect, upon mission work  in  fields such as ure met with  out  here, to say that it is positively  cruel to send men out  with  so  small a pittance for support and  often the payments so long deferred that   unless   they   have  private   means'  they   have   at  times been up against the alter-'  natives--to beg, starve  or  steal.  When  men  of whom  superintendents have, little or no personal knowledge were sent .into  such fields, is it any wonder that  occasionally the result was, as  Owen Wistar describes, a  case  of   "malpractice   upon   human  sbuls"?   Better by far  would it  be to  leave a field  untouched  than  to ��������� attempt   carrying  on  .work in such a way.  But when we see two or more  denominatians trying to occupy  a field where there is not support for.one, regardless of the  membership or lack of it which,  each may have, and note the  friction and ill-feeling engendered because of this opposition,  the utter folly of the thing becomes so apparent that it is  difficult to have any patience  with such opposition as was  offered to the resolution for  church union in the Presbyterian synod. Sectarian shibboleths and early religious prejudices may influence city clergymen, but if the subject of union  with other evangelical denominations were left to the Presbyterian laity resident on mission  fields they Would, say with the  accommodating lover,  "Hoav happy could 1 be Avith either,  Were t' other dear charmer away."

Mrs. McKinnon left for  Okanagan Falls on Monday.  ��������� Bull-dog .Brown is after the scalps of  those who interfere with his boat on  the Similkameen river.  Mrs. Brass returned on Friday last  from Golville, Wash, where she has  been visiting her sister for the past  three, weeks. ...       -  Fred, M. Wells came down from  Pollock Camp on Fiiduy to meet O. F.  Law whom he has not seen for several  years.  - A man from Portland was in town  on Monday and engaged a couple of  men to go up _ to work on, Copper  Mountain.  Mrs. Ronald Hewat and children, of  Princeton, who spent the winter in  Alberta, came in on Friday evening's  stage and went to Princeton on Saturday.  For plain sewing, repairing and ien-  ovatirig gentlemen's clothing, try Miss  Elliott, Kingston Ave. " ,  It is definitely announced that Mr.  ,Camsell will complete, his work in  Camp Hediey-before proceeding to the  Tiilanioen where he is being sent to investigate platinum deposits.  Bert Jones arrived on Friday last  from the Coast and is at work in the  mrchine shop* up at the mine. He  made a remarkable recovery from the  serious injury he received in a mining  accident at the coast.  In all probability Hediey will be  well represented at Keremeos-on Victoria Day. The baseball team arid a  team from the gun club are both going  to compete and- all the rigs in town  were engaged a fortnight ago.  Work on the Twenty Mile wagon  road is now in full progress, with J. L.  Caldwell in charge. It is supervisor  Deardorff's intention to have the work  rushed as rapidly as possible, and orders to that effect have been given.  Premier McBride, attorney-general  Bowser and Hon. H. E. Young, provincial secretary, arrived in Vernon on  Saturday. The attorney-general is  handling the cases for the Crown, at  the assizes. All were going across to  the Boundary from the lower Okanagan. This latter stretch they intended to drive.  Eveiywhere in the Similkameen  there, is a warm greeting for Robert  Stevenson from old-timers and others.  He is well deserving the title of father  of the Similkameen, and is still among  the most enthusiastic of its prospec-  tors.He has recently made an important strike on the Chippewa claim in  Camp Hediey, and stands to make a  pot of money out of it. Dan Coutnay  is helping him to .do the work.  Hediey loses a good citizen in the  removal of Jack Gillan, .who left on  Tuesday for .Granite Creek, where he  and Louis Marcot have taken over the  hotel from Chas deBarro. Mr. Gillan  took a lively interest in public affairs;  was attentive to his own business, and  being both capable and obliging, lie  was ever ready to do a job of pipe-  fitting or other work of the kind to  help out a neighbor, and he is no grafter. Granite Creek gets in him a good  citizen. The Gazette wishes Mr. and  Mrs. Gillan and Mr. Marcot a full  measure of prosperity.  Geo. Cunningham, -Sr., of Greenwood, paid his first visit to Hediey last  week," giviug a pleasant surprise to  several old friends, among wlioni was  the editor. His son, Geo. Cunningham, who is superintendent on construction for J. W. Stewart on the V.  V. <fc E., was up in Princeton at the  time but came back the same evening  and met his father before he went out  next morning. Mr. Cunningham, Sr.,  is mining recorder at Greenwood, and  connected with the constabulary there.  His-mifsion over into the, Similkameen  was to look up evidence in the. Niagara  explosion case, which is to come up at  Greenwood on the 26th, when Cedio,  the Italian, will be tried for murder.  Capt. Laidlaw of the ' Salvation  Army was in town this week collecting funds for a children's home in Vancouver. This hustling, energetic- Salvation lassie has the distinction of visiting every mining camp inB. C. from  the. Yukon to Lethbridge. On this  trip she lias yet to go through to the  Coast by Nicola, and after a week's  rest she will start for tlie far North en  route to Fairbanks. After that goal  has been reached she will have to weep  like Alexander for other fields to conquer. In referring to the. Army's efforts in the matter of immigration to  this province, she says that the. greatest success has attended the venture  of bringing out domestic servants,  and the 500 who came have all been  placed, and at headquarters they are  constantly in receipt of the warmest  testimonials of satisfaction from employers of these girls.  D. J. Innis will have a number of  -���������*    .-      ~ -..   . - ,i  special rigs onhahdto take any who  may want to go to the sports at Kece-  uieos. - "������������������  Mrs. W, J. Adams and son, of Vernon, came on Tuesday to visit her  brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs.  Geo. E. French.  The through and local express from  Keremeos is now being carried on  Innis' mail stage. The express oflicc  in Hediey is at the Palace Livery.  More cattle went up the river to the  grazing grounds above Princeton last  week. They were principally from  the herds of Frank Richtei- and Mrs.  Daly.  Miss Mabel Welch, daughter of Pat  Welch, contractor, has announced her.  engagement to Frederick Wilson, an  electrical engineer of Belfast, Ireland,  who was in Hediey with Mr. Welch  about three months ago.  Forty more men  are expected  this  week at Camp No. 2.     Some of them  will be employed in grading   the new.  road to the station  and  the i est will  start in on  the grade across Smelter  Flat.  The ground where the steam-shovel  is working at present is rather- too  hard for it, andas a result, there are  frequent break-downs The ground is  boulder till, with hard-pan very much  in evidence through it. One day last  week the large sprocket chain parted,  and one end .flying back struck the  driver in the face breaking his nose.  Dr. Whillans dressed the wound and  found a piece*of bone broken off either  side his nose. The^escape from much  more serious injury  was' remarkable.  Of all the snide'affairs that have attempted to foist entertainment on the  public the so-called moving picture  show that held the boards in "Fraternity Hall on Thursday night last' was  by common consent voted the limit.  The concern was' said to hail from  Grand Forks, aud one hopeful sign  that there may be some hope left for  the perpetrators was that there was  no name on. the adveitising matter.  As one party put it "if the thing had  been any better it would have been  worse, for the utter badness of it was  such as to provoke laughter, aud this  would have been lacking if the show  had been better."  Last week-it was rumored about the  streets   that R. B. Lamb  was in   the  country again.- The rumor had it that  he was at Keremeos looking  up some  properties at Olalla, but nothing could  be learned   in  verification of this further than that he had come in on the  Great Northern  via Keremeos.    The  only thing definite that could be learned was that Tony Pleasance had talked  with him over the phone from  Okanagan  Falls where Lamb was at the  time,   and   rumor   is   divided-as   to  whether lie was looking at   mineral  claims or helping in the  promotion of  .a power -scheme for Okanagan Falls.  Still another rumor has it that he is out  prospecting on a grub-stake. You pays  your money and you takes your choice.  The.Gazette had a pleasant call last  week from David McBride, the mayor  of Bridesville,    who drove  over last  week to revisit, old  haunts,   ami yiew  the  improvements    that   have  taken  place,  in the valley since the old days  of the Granite Creek excitement.   Mr.  McBride was one  of   the   more level  headed of those old nomads of the placer age, and tied up to a piece of land  on  which he made good by staying  with it.    Pie was one of  the pioneers  of Rock Mountain, and his fine ranch,  though badly cut up by sundry loops  of   the  Great  Northern    which    has  placed a station on his land,   is still   a  fine farm.   In addition'to the farm he  has a hotel which is needed for the accommodation of a considerable volume  of travel to  and   from  Brideville  station which is proving  to   be  a lather  important point of embarkation.  : .There is no Discount on the quality of  Our Goods, but the Discount in Price is  money saved for you    -  - Now is the time you require a  nJ!U.ml\riVJXiX*M  and  NewS  ���������  And we are going to give them to you at  a Discount of 20 Per Cent*.

AV. E. Welby will run a daily stage  from Pentictoii to Keremeos, and it is  hoped that the P. O. department will  be equal to the occasion and see that  the mail is carried each day as well.  If this be done, it will be better to  have Coast mail come by way of Penticton than by the Gresit Northern.  As there is no Sunday train, Friday's Vancouver papers do not reach  Hediey until the next Tuesday for no  Coast mail reaches here on Monday  evening.  THE MODELS  ���������= Princeton, B.6.

Vast  Areas in Foot-hills of, Rockiest-  Will  Build  $3,500,000  Railway. ,  Big enterprises in the West are  about-to be inaugurated by the German Development Co., Ltd., a corporation with a capital of a million dollars  fully paid up. It has acquired twelve  square miles in the Brazeau, Big Horn  and Saskatchewan coal" basins in the  foothills of the Rockies, about eighty-  five-miles southwest of the main line  -of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and another area of six square, miles in-the/  Canadian National Park,'twelve miles  south of Kauanaskis, a station on the  C. P. R. ,.'���������'���������:���������'������������������-'  The latter field is  now  being developed on an extensive scale.   Tins was  the.announcement  made recently   by  Martin Oohn,   the managing director,  who is a guest ;it the Hotel Vancouver.  The coal is of the -semi-anthracite variety and is similar in  character to the  product of the C. P. R. mine at Bank-  head.   The Brazeau and adjacent coal-  ,fields are regarded   as em bracing  the  largest area of bituminous coal in the  West,, even   exceeding   that of   the,  Crow's Nest district.    Prospecting will  be" carried on this summer under the  direction of Mr. .Tames McEvoy.   who  lately' resigned from   his position  as  geologist with the Crow's  Nest Pass  Company.   The coal is said to. be excellent for coking and when the scams  are opened up an enormous output can  be maintained.    The company intends  to build a railway  to   these  coalfields  from innisfail, a station on the Edmonton branch of the(,,C. P. R., its length  being one hundred miles.   The cost is  estimated at $3,500,000.  The necessary  legislation has been secured.  The president of the company is  Baron Buxenstein, councillor of commerce to the King of Prussia. Other  directors are Dr. A. E. Barlow, late of  the geological survey ; Col.-Talbot, M.  P., Bellechasse, and Andrew Haydon,  Ottawa.

I have just come home from the  Tennis Club Ball so you may imagine  how tired I feel while I am writing  these "Tit-Bits." The ball was the  huge success it was predicted to be,  and much praise is due to the ladies  and gentlemen forming the committee  for this event. The hall was decorated  with tennis nets, raquets, balls etc.,  and the prevailing colors of the evening were blue and white, the club  colors. The music was furnished by the  Kelowna Orchestra, the best to be obtained in the Okanagan valley.  The rifles and ammunition for the  Penticton Civilian Rifle Association  have arrived, and in a yery short time  we expect to have quite a good time.  The Athletic Association meets on  Tuesday evening to arrange the program for the day's sports on the 1st of  July. If is generally thought that-  horse racing will be left out entirely  this year owing to having no race  track, and that the spoits of the day  will be aquatic and athletic and strict-  Iv amateur.  Stuart Henderson, M. P. P. for Ash-  croft, was in town last week, going on  to Fairview where he acted as counsel  for Henry Main in the case of Schubert vs. Main.  We are getting used to being besieged here. Two weeks ago I mentioned that we were crowded out by  people from up lake points. This week  it is the commercials of whom T write,  as on Friday last no fewer than sixteen  drummers of various sorts were in  town ab the same time. If numbers  are any criterion, business in Penticton (to put it in vulgar ^erins) must be  looking  up.  The Premier, Dr. Young and  Price  ety, was one of the pioneers of scientific horticulture and the value of his  work in producing new varieties by  the then little-known method of hybridisation caii hardly be overestimated. He was president of the'society  in  1S36.  The exhibit of apples grown in this  valley which won this medal was composed chiefly of winter varieties,- but  included also Snows and Macintosh  Red, the first time this latter variety  had been shown in London.  MAY "ROD AND GUN.  Ellison   are   expected   in   to-morrow.  The question of the bridge across the  river will be  brought forcibly  before  their notice.  Penticton, B. C, May 18th, 190S.  Exceedingly attractive is   the May  number of "Rod and Gun  and Motor  Sports in Canada," published by W. J.  Taylor of Woodstock,  Ontario.   Stories of hunting moose, mountain goat,  bear, deer and ducks surely offer plenty  variety, to the. hunter,  while to  the  fisherman the  papers   on   salmon  in  Ontario rivers by the Rev.  Dr.  Murdoch, and maskinonge fishing by W.  Hickson must call  up memories and  awaken   thoughts   such as only the  fisherman  can know.    "Early Postal  difficulties in   Eastern   Canada"   is   a  contribution to the history of a past  which is near enough to be full of the  deepest interest to the present generation.    The   visit of  the President  of  the Alpine Club of Canada is described  and a  touching account given of the  fatal accident which  occurred  to  the  leader of the  party attempting a  record  climb  in   the Swiss Alps.    "The  Majesty of the Mails," a  story of the  heroic efforts made by the letter carriers of the far north to deliver mails  is told in graphic fashion and one  understands as one reads this fine contribution how it is that despite enormous  difficulties the  Hudson Bay Company  never lost a mail.     The number is  a  particularly good one.     Buy  or send  for it.  ston Churchill for his sketch in his interesting department "Men I.Have  Met."
