to our mines il  is impossible lo

province has produced over W'y
00(l,Hl)0 in gold and silver, and al
the present time   moro  capital

coal  beds are magnificent  and
practically inexhaustible    We
have coal of all descriptions and
chemical   composition-  from   a
seini-authracile to a low grade

immense size and excellent quality.   An average analysis of ten
samples of East Kootenay iron

silica  1.1-1,   sulphur .01.'!, pho-
