Array Library ol Lejf Am  Vol. IO.  PORT STBBLB, B. C, SATURDAY; APRIL '23, 1904.  No 17  C.P.R. IN' THE FLATHEAD.  Are 'Willing   lo   Assist'the Gov-  _eminent,to Open up Coal .Areas  Owned by the' Company.  Ii'ernic, April IS.---The C.P.R  apparently lias still soma hopes  oT obtaining a share, possibly a  lion's share, of llio coal and oil  - lands iii llie Rial head district in  ISast Kootenay.  What ground tho  railway   has  lor cherishing the view referred  to is not  known   definitely,   but  that thc'ro is some foundation for  the fact is instanced  by   the  declared willingness of the big corporation to.co-operate 'with   the  Fernie  Board  of  Trade  in   the  -    immediate     construction    of    a,  wagon road from (hilt camp into  the'dislrict in question.  * At the  last meeting of the Fernie Board  of Trade, ea representative of the  C.P.R. is said lo have staled lhat  as his company desired to freight  in a large quantity of mining 111a-  . chinery  into   the   Flathead coal  and   oil   lands, ho would be willing   to join   1 ho   board    in constructing,  a , wagon * road    this  spring, from   Fernie'. and   bear a  fair proportion of the expense of  road making.  The    above   O. P.li.    inspired  communication   has   many, misleading statements.   ' ''What  is  puzzling  a"   good    many  of  the  citizens  here,   at  Fernie. is the  attitude of the railway company.  ,    Unless they feel   reasonably certain that at least a part of  their  ,^'claim lb the coveted coal- and oil  lands will bo eventually   allowed  by   the   McBTido    government,  they would hardly 'undertake  1o  ���   join in road making". ' Who is il  .   that wants to' freight in the min-  , .ing   machinery-":-     Ts iilhe-CP.  II. in some form or another?  The McBride  govern ment  so  ,    we are'informed,   will not give  the C. P.'K. a single foot of  land  in the Flathead reserve,   known  as Block 4^03.  The C. P��. R., by its connection  with the B.C. Southern railway  and tho'building of the Crow's  Nesi. branch, secured as a land  grant Block - 4f>S'J, a strip 20  miles in width, and extending  from Lodge Polo creek to the  international boundary line, containing approximately .498,893  acres. On Lodge Pole creek, tho  C.P.R. has uncovered, and'faced  up a large number of coal seams,  and it is possible that oil may be  found on the southern portion of  this bloclc, near tho boundary.  The puzzling attitude of the  C.P.R. is made apparent, when  it is'known that a wagon road  from Fernie into ' Bloclc 4e93,  will bo, if constructed from lhat  place, not loss Ihan 10 to lf>  miles in lengl'h. Thai in the  construction of'��� this-road, not  less than 3d miles will be over  Block -liiSO owned by lhe C.P.R.  At present the only portion ol  the Flathead valley requiring  machinery for its development  in the coal possessions of lhe  C.P.R. on Block i:>S0.  Three 'routes-, into the Flal-  -.- head can be secured. One from  .Fernie, up Coal creek lo, south  -', fork of Michel' creek, " thence  south through the C. P.R. block  for about ;:50 iniles. From ��� Morrissey creek east, thence south,  through said block for 20, -miles.  These two routes would be impassable during winter months  on account of the heavy snowfall. A road from Elko, passable at -all times of tlio yetir.  with no summits to cross, via  the south fork of Elk river. Wig-  Block Ifi^O, which contain thousand of acres, of choice' coal land,  large areas of valuable limber,  and possibly a considerable area  "of oil land "Those colli lands  have been exploited to the extent that further development  cannot be proceeded with without machinery, hence the willingness of the big corporation to  assi-t the-government to build a  road, through land owned by the  company, to develop coal areas,  received by 1 hem from the government as a railway granl. and  al :ih little expense as possible  lo lhe big corporation/  'Until such limes as the reserve-, is opened to location by  the government, tho South  Koolenay Pass trail,, from Hlko  via south ?furk of File river.  Lodge Pole'and Wigwam, is  sufficient to meet the demands of  locator* and-'prospoclors. Later  on, when the owners of these  coal areas commence to develop  their properties, then a wagon  road will be a necessity, but lo  build at lhe present time, is to  force the'" government to assist  in developing C.P.R. coal areas.  In conclusion we might say  that   Ihe   Pernio   article,   places  COAL COMPANY ORGANIZED.

Most of  this will bo used as a-boinis to go  to Mr. Sweeny for taking up the  bonds. The money from the  bonds will be used to complete  the smelter and start the mine.  In addition the stockholders  must place 1.000.000 shares of  stock in 'escrow, which -Mr,  Sweeny can lake up before July  1, 11)05, on paying IT) cculs a  share. The company is capitalized for :i,-000,000.  Senator George Turner is  president, and J, C. Williams  secretary of tho company.  Barney Laylon, vice president  of tho company, has-been in Spokane for the past -week, negotiating, the deal.  WHAT Ml*. KWIOKNY SAYS  "1 have been approached by  the Sullivan people, who want  me lo take, unsold bonds of $120.-  000 issued by I he-Sullivan Croup  Mining conpany," said Mr.  Sweeny last night.

The ore  cannot lie .successfully concentrated and must be smelted. It  carries from 2f> to -10 per cent  lead, and from 12 to 'la ounces of  silver 'per ton. W. Clayton Miller examined it for me. There  appears to bo about lfi0,0.()0 tons  of ore. in sight-, equal to aboul  ���10.00(1 tons of lead, It is not  settled -thai, we should build'a  refinery in connection with the  smelter.'."  The Imperial Coal & Coke  Company,, recently organized in  Montreal, with W. Herbert  Evans as .president, and Humes  Hall as soorolary-freasurer, has  been licensed, as an Extra-Provincial Company, authorized to  carry on business within 1ho  province of Brilish Columbia.  Tho capital iis s|,r.('0,0n0, tmd  the company within a comparatively limited -period promises  to be one'of lhe great industries  of Southeast Kootenay, and'to  rival in extenf'lhc Crow's Nest  Coal Com'pany. This company  has secured no less than ninety-  four miles, or (iO, 100 acres, of  tho finest bituminous coal lands  on Fording river, oast of Elk-,  river, and north of the lown of  Michel. Tho northern limit ofc  area is 10 miles from Michel and  extends south for more than 30  miles'lo a.point seven-or qighl  miles north of Michel.  it is understood .thai Mr.  Evans and his Canadian associates will bo joined i'h a few days  by New York and Pennsylvania  coal owners, making a strong  board'of directors. Mr. Andrew  Laidlaw will be'at, Fort Steele  in a few days for the purpose of  preparing, for the survey of the  properly, and preliminary operations.'/and an experienced  superintendent will follow and  by the middle of May systematic  and extensive development will  be entered upon. . '    ,  Tho company .anticipate that  the cost." of opening up the property will be small as compared  with most coal properties. Being a tunnel proposition, no  sinking machinery will be required, the inuncls will be run  on the coal'seams, and tho black  diamonds can be secured from  the beginning of the work. They  declare in fact, that the expenditure of ��1,000,000 in the development of several of the largo coal  seams and,equipment of the properly will enable the company  to produce 1.000 tons of coal  daily.  Speaking of the market' and  the coal industry generally, Mr.  Laidlaw estimates a market in  south eastern British Columbia,  the Territories and Manitoba,  for at least 1,000.000 tons of coal  and 800,000 tons of coke yearly,  and the demand for this sectjpn  is bound to increase.  ,Tho smelters of Montana, he  says, require moro than 000,000  tons of coke yearly, all of which  can be supplied from Southeast  ICootenay, lo groat advantage.  .1. J. Mill, prosklonl of the Great  Northern Railway, has publicly  stated thai he required 10,000  Ions of coal daily, or al least  :!.r>00,O0(.> tons yearly for his rail  way     system. This     would  warrant a total production of  l,.r)00,000 of raw coal in Southeast lvooten'ay.

Mr. Stillos and Mr. Bracket'  have been on tho ground for  some time laying out the work  and formulating plans for operations.  The mill will be. built on the  ilat near tho north end of the St.  Mary's bridge. A bridge will be  put across lhe St. Mary's near  the mouth of Perry creek. A  spur will be put in from a  point on the North Star branch  to the mill. From here a road  will bo constructed up Perry  creek to Old  Town.  Some delay was caused by Ihe  C.P. R., but a conference between  Mr. Staples and the C.P.R. officials has cleared up tho difficulty and the, work of construction  will begin .shortly. The company has 12.000 acres of limber.,  and will put in. a pla��nl of 7.1,001'  feot daily capacity.  The   Steel   Has Arrived.  The steel for the Perry Creek  Hydraulic Co's. pipe has arrived.
