Archie Jackson was then called  uppn for a speech, but he declined; to commit himself upon any  of the questions. When interrogated as to his opinions on Single  'Tax he answered-- X'l have always been single." which sally  was received with much laughter.;  ; J'. A. Menzies then took the  centre of the stage and told what  -he thought. He agreed that the  city must own public utilities.  He had taken stock in the light  company in order to have the  lights installed in his premises.  Anyone can have his stock when  he offers to give him what he put  into it. ~ As much as the city can  do this year will be the grading  of streets. He was uncertain as  to the best method of sewage  disposal.

He has been in the valley; since  '77 and during that time has  watched its growth 7 with' ever  growing prided There, was no  reason why ^Merritt should not be  as prosperous ks Vernon, which  is one of the most prosperous of  inland towns.

He had no voice  in the election as j he did not re-  side^ithinithe-city4iihits^=^he  council would have nothing to do  wit)^ education this year. * Merritt ;has;;nbt;been gazetted as a  municipal school district.    If this  were done it would be a city of  the |hird cl^ss and would receive  a smaller grant from the goVerh-  ment than under existing conditions.   When in Victoria in Jan-  Juafy^he*had:seen the minister for  education in regard to this city  and the latter had advised him  that it will be better for the present  to have this classed as a  municipal school district.   In regard to  sanitation   he  advised  that the system adopted by; the  government :in connection with  the hew school be given consideration   by   the   council  before  they made a final choice.    The  school building which the government are to build here in the immediate future will  cost  about  eight thousand and will contain  four rooms 27 x 36 and two lavatories; with^a playground in the  basement..;,..::���,:,The citi^ns shpuld  give a good deal of the credit for  securing the new school to Archie  Jackson as he  had made  very  strong representations to the government when he was in Vancouver last winter.  . J. P. Boyd stated that the  members of the council should  jgive careful consideration to  everything that may be brought  before; them.   Fire protection is  vei*y   necesaary,  and  a  proper  system will require waterworks.  As to methods of taxation he did  not think he hadgiyen the matter  sufficient consideration to commit  himself that  eyehirig.^ Street  lighting is^a   necessity.^ so;^is  police protection,arid there should  be at least two cpristables.   v " . ���  As Duncan Munroe and  Neil.  McMillan were not present, Mr.  Grimrnett, on the motion bf W;  Warren;^^^ adjourned thie*- riieeting  until Monday evenirig when the'y  should have an opportunity to air  their views.    He   urged  miners  present, if  there   should   be  a  meeting the following day;; to en^  state of our city in case ��� of fire.  Anyone who has watched a fire  travel should know, that if a  building gets well on fire in the  business section with bur usual  stiff breeze;blowing, the whole  city will be at the mercy of the  'flames. ->T>'7z>.

He  thbught it the necessary work  for the council to carry out. Alf  though it was his first experience  in municipal politics he was willing to learn. -  The latter was also a strong  advocate of efficient fire protection, but did hot think that the  city, should incur heavy expense  in installation of water works  this year. He believed in the  dry earth system of sanitation  and in police protection and street  lighting. :  H. S. Cleasby reported that  Isaac Eastwood was ill and unable to be present.  Dr. Tutill suggested that plans  of. buiIdings should be submitted  to whatever health officer ; may  be appointed by the council. He  explained his seeming inactivity  as health officer. The matter  was taken out of his hands by  the government agent at - Nicola  through the board of trade. He  did hot believe that there is any  danger of a fever epidemic here.'  There should hot be much trouble  in-:,dealing with, sanitation if  everyone took care of his property  and kept it clear of refuse.

Premier McBride, Hon. Geo. E.  Foster, Billy McLean, A. S. Good-  eve, or who? If Dick McBride,  then there will be a ' 'monkey and  parrot" time in provincial politics. It was the premier who carried the province in the last two  elections, and without him the  Conservatives would have difficulty in obtaining a majority of  seats at a general election. Hon.  W. J. Bowser is an able man, and  honest, if somewhat intolerant  and headstrong. Should he have  sufficient time in office as premier before a general election,  he would make good.  Premier McBride would have  the same trouble in federal politics that other Conservative  leaders have experienced. There  are a bunch of fossils in the house  who can neither lead nor follow.  They drove the best of the old  time Conservatives out of the  house in disgust. Until those relics die off or are kicked out   by  help it to ultimate success unless,  it wisely uses ��� the power that  comes into its hands.  John Mitchell belongs to the  type of labor leader to whom  trade unions owe their present  favor in the public estimation.  Through the power of men like  Mitchell, Sargent, Arthur arid  Lynch, a restraining hand has  been laid upon organized labor's  deadliest enemy���the unreasoning agitators who bring upon the  unions the distrust and hostility  of thoughtful citizens.  In the Chicago strike the local  union has temporarily been balked of a move that seriously menaced, potentially at least, the  wholesome principle of contracts,  which include agreements against  strikes and lockouts pending arbitration. Nothing has more  efficaciously lifted organized labor  into popular esteem than obedience to contracts of this sort and  the resultant industrial peace.  To turn back on this road to  dignity, honor and self respect  would be most unwise.  The laboring men who stand by  their constituents it would be an,Mitche11 an<* Lynch are right and  act of folly for Premier McBride  to accept the leadership. There  are men in parliament, who in  thirty years have done nothing  but ask questions and criticize  the acts of men who have ideas.  They live in the past. Sir John A.  McDonald did their thinking and  since his death they have, parrotlike, simply repeated what they  were taught. Canada has advanced since 1878. They haven't  got beyond 1891. Is it strange  that Mr. Borden wants to quit?  He has advanced with the country. They are still talking National Policy."���Slocan Record.  ORGANIZED LABOR'S DANGER  Both in the Chicago newspaper*  strike and in the action of miners  toward John Mitchell, organized  labor is playing with fire. Neither  the favors shown it in political  platforms nor the complaisant  mood of state  legislatures can  those who clamor against their  diplomatic relations with employers are wrong. It is a'black  day for organized labor whenever  a blow is struck at the sacredness  of contracts or statesmanlike  leadership. .The greatest,battle  that labor has to fight, after^all,  is the battle .with'the implacable  and hot-headed element of its  ranks. ���Indianapolis Star.

Telephone No. 45  Or Inquire Elite Restaurant  Coalmont  President-and Secretary of the  -���C.   C.  &   C.   Company  Report Progress  Last Sunday evening two men  registered at the Coldwater hotel.  A glance at the register showed  the. names J. W. Bettes and W. L.  Parrish, both from Winnipeg.  There was something vaguely  familiar about the names, and  the News man looked for the  bearers of them. Two quiet-  looking business men, one middle  aged_ and the other with white  locks and beard, looked likely and  toe approached them. His conjecture was correct. Mr. Parrish  recognized him for newsgatherer  immediately���probably from previous experiences with the members of the fourth estate. 4  f'(-You want to know our business and all about ourselves ?"  -Helaughed wisely, and the ink-  slinger was taken aback. He  was as" wise " as. ever though,  and put in a suggestive quesion.  .....-''Are you going to make a  statement for publication ?" he  asked.  '' About what matter ? " The  reporter scratched his head and  confessed ignorance. Then the  veteran of numerous interviews  relented. " I suppose you mean  our coal - mines on Granite  Creek ?"  Here was some light and the  reporter dived for it. " Yes," he  hurriedly explained, "that's  what I want some information  about. How is your Coalmont  townsite getting ? "  ,'' Very satisfactorily,'' said  Mr. Parrish. " There are about  twenty buildings already under  construction, and the work is  being rushed as rapidly as possible. The large tunnel we are  driving through the mountain to  the coal is now in about five hundred feet. The big bridge across  the Tulameen. to give readier  access to Tulameen, is being  rushed ahead fast and will shortly  be completed. A large general  store -has been opened up by a  ���Mr. McTavish. Apost office will  be opened on May 1. Taken all  in,all, everything' is progressing  very satisfactorily."  .' W. L^- Parrish is secretary of  the Columbia Coal & Coke Company and "J. W. Bettes is president. Associated with them in  the company, which is a close  corporation,, are the Hon. Colin  Campbell and J. W. Brown, of  Winnipeg; other members of the  syndicate are Daniel Donald and  JrTrJonnsonrofVancouverrand  G. L. Fraser, of Granite Creek.  Mr. Bettes was associated with  the founding of the Lethbridge  Collieries and the Taber mine,  and Mr. Fraser opened up the  International and has since been  engineer for the Royal Collieries  at Lethbridge.  Coalmont is 130 miles from  Vancouver, by the V. V. & E.  route and 40 miles from tidewater  at Hope. The Coalriiont company  is a close corporation, none of the  stock being on the market and  bonds having been sold. It is  establishing a townsite at Coalmont, w.hich will be placed on the  market when the Provincial Government has selected- its lots,  which Swill be at .an early date,  probably a month. It is situated  halfway between Granite and  Tulameen on the Tulameen river.  ;" The company has "about 6,000  acres of coal lands. There are  six seams arid ari average thickness of 50 feet of eoal. It is  building a tramway to the mine,  which will be on the main line of  the Great Northern V. V. & E.  route to Vancouver. The C. P. R.  Kettle River road has also surveyed a line from Princeton, and  is now talking of running the line  from Aspen Grove via "Coalmont  to Princeton.

Messrs. Roberts  and Schaeffer," the consulting  engineers of the company, are  installing the first tipple and coal  washerand other necessary plant.  It is expected that the company  will begin shipping by August or  September.  - Mr. Camsell estimates the  quantity of coal at 120,000,000  tons, and other estimates place it  higher. The coal-is of high grade,  suitable for domestic purposes,  for steaming, for coke and for  blacksmithing. The company  states that although a coking coal  similar in that respect to the  Crow's Nest coal, it is unbroken  and" contains no crushed coal;  this makes it suitable for domestic  purposes, as it does not coke in  the stove. It will be shipped to  Nelson and the Kootenay and to  cities of the western states, as  well as to Vancouver and the  coast.  Incorporated 1855.

From William Smith Esq. of  Vancouver we are in receipt of a  -very��� interesting-clippinglfrom  the Edinburgh Scotsman. As  Mr. Smith says in his communication, in which the clipping is  enclosed, ' 'our pin head diamonds  appear to be growing nicely." It  will be recalled that one Camsell,  a government geologist, reported  the discovery of a diamond particle in some clay from the Tulameen. Evidently the Canadian  correspondent of the Scotsman is  imaginatively endowed. Read  the following:���  IMPORTANT DISCOVERY  DIAMONDS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  ''Diamonds in payingquantitieshave  been discovered in British Columbia on  the Tulameen River between Granite  Creek and Princeton, a stretch of some  twenty miles. This discovery was made  very recently by prospectors from Vancouver, the Government Geological Survey officers having investigated the find  report jthat diamonds are there in some  quantity in a placer deposit. The official reports state that these deposits are  in ' the formation similar to those in  South Africa, and the indications are  that the region is rich in diamonds.  This is the first discovery of such gems  in Canada, and preparations are being  ma'de'for a "rush"."  IP YOU WANT A GOOD  /- ;l  GO TO     .

Vancouver  World becoming hyperbolic in  diatribes against the government  for raising the price" .of Crown  iands. Every increase, every  change in a government policy,  especially when such change is  the result of a quick decision,  undoubtedly works to an extent  to the financial detriment of certain capitalists. Particularly is  this true in the present instance.  This is a particularly striking  example of what is good for the  multitude>beingibadifor. the few.  There have been land-grabbers  and land-stakers prowlirig round  the country in increasing numbers during the- past .twelve  months. .With,.thei former in their  dilemma we have no sympathy,  with regard to the latter it is  otherwise. There are quite a  number of bona-fide colonization  companies in the field at present,  and they are seriously inconvenienced by the change-; unfortunately, the government are unable  to make exceptions, so the innocent must suffer with the guilty.  A rather amusing feature of the  splash which ^he, rise in price  has made is the uniformity with  which those who were stung- to.  life by the shock propelled themselves onto the cerebellum of the  attorney-general. Mr. Bowser  didn't bow; sir ! ��. r.  English settler goes to the United  States his constant effort is to  adapt himself to the life of that  country, so that in many cases  one would never know after a  very little while that they had  come from across the Atlantic.  The result is that he becomes  "contented with his new surroundings, and-it.is simply the truth  to say -that in, nearly every case  such settlers havetheir full share  of prosperity. Canada is not a  foreigrf" "country to the Englishman, but he often acts as "if it  were. -Ear be it.from us to suggest that an immigrant from the  mother country should shake off  his feelings for the. home land.  We do not ask him to be off with  the old love, but only to get on  with the new just as soon as he  can. He, will find it better for  him in a hundred little ways that  cannot be easily told. What we  are advising may' seem difficult to  some, people"; "but we know of  many.-Englishmen who have  found it'easy, enough, and who,  though they-have only been in  Canada a little _while, are fully  inj touch with things Canadian  and their thoughts are bound up  in the "welfare .bfPthesir" adopted  homes.

NEWS AND VIEWS  In the report of-Major-General  Sir Percy Lake,' who recently retired; some general remarks of  interest to the militia are made.  He notes that in his report covering the previous years training  that it would be a mere truism to  say that the militia force was  not at present really efficient or  ready to take the field, and that  no force with only 12 days' training in the year could be so. The  extension of the term of training  to 16 days, Sir Percy remarks,  though even this was too short,  had greatly improved the artillery  arm of the service. He.adds.that  it would not cost more than $175, -  000 to extend the training of all  branches of the service to 16 days.  "Sir John Freneh was of opinion  that such an extension was absolutely necessary for cavalry at  any rate. I hold that it is equally  necessary for all arms."  It is estimated that between  two and three hundred settlers a  month are coming into the Fraser  Valley. New Wesminster gets,  on the average, . about fifty a  month. These people are coming  from such distant points as Nottingham, London and Glasgow,  and some few are from the Canadian Northwest. The new. arrivals are of a fine type, a large  number of them being retired  military and naval officers, who  take up land for investment and  possibly with a view to doing  some farming on a small scale.  The majority have a moderate  amount of capital.  An interesting and important  experiment by way of. encouraging, the growing of alfalfa in  Manitoba province has been announced by the minister of agriculture. The experiment will be  conducted under the direction of  Prof. Bedford, of the field husbandry department of the agricultural societies of the province.  The society providing one acre of  suitable land close to a town, and  undertaking the care of same,  will receive free of charge seed  sufficient to sow the plot, and also  advice and direction from a member of the agricultural college  staff, who will visit and inspect  the growing crop.  Western Canada lands are certainly increasing in valuo, and it  is quite evident that there will  soon be no more $15-an-acre land  in the west. The Hudson's Bay  Co. is following the example se,t  by private individuals and has  Iffect  pm^int^^ffect^an^increase^in;  price of its lands ranging from  $5.00 to $10.00 an acre higher  than the former scale. Lands  along located lines, which three  weeks ago were generally quoted  at $14 and $15 per acre, cannot  now be purchased from that com  pany at less than $20 and $25 per  acre. This will no doubt be the  signal for a general increase on  the part of all companies in the  price of their lands in the West.  Notwithstanding the increased  prices buying is extremely active  and sales are daily reported at  from $20 to $30 per acre.  Two great Canadian transcontinental railways, each battling,  against time to complete their  systems west from Edmonton  through the Rockies, will, during  the next two years, be pitted  against one another in one of the  greatest railway races in the history of railway construction in  western Canada to secure the  first connection with tide water  on. the Pacific. Two years ago  the Grknd Trunk Pacific and the  Canadian Northern were battling  for primary location of route  through Yellowhead Pass in the  Rockies. The G. T. P. won out,  but the year following the C. N.  beat the Grand Trunk to it for a  location or route'down the North  Thompson into Vancouver. With  the C. N. R. building its line to  Vancouver via the North Thompson, and the Grand Trunk Pacific  heading for its terrriinalat Prince  Rupert via Fort George, both  railways are plunged into a keen  race for the^first completed grade  through to the Pacific. West of  Edmonton, which is the base of  this race, the Grand Trunk have  200 miles of grade completed,  while ithe Ganatiian Northern  have only 40 miles. From the  Pacific end, the Grand Trunk  have 150 miles of grade completed  to the Canadian Northern's 70.
