Public Needs MfaW Buhl's Supplied-
Proposals for the future -The
Branch Railway A Greft* Enterprise.
Manager I'E B. Smith, of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Coin pany,
is in the City, having como to
spend Christmas with his family
here. Mr. Smith is a Scotchman,
itiVl all that that word means. He
has had a long experience in
coal mining, both at homo and in
America, and for four years past
lias been in the employ of the
Dunsinuirs at Nanaimo. He is tho
character of man to run a coal
mine without a doubt.
"We expect to land the first
shipment of our coul at Port
Steele within a week," said Mr.
Smith in a tone that was musically Caledonian. "Of course it
will only be coal for blacksmith's
purposes. The cost of haulimg,
ii To miles for ordinary fuel
would be too great. But the
blacksmiths 1 hope will appreciate alike the quality of the coal
and the reduction of tlie price
that heretofore they have been
paying. Messrs Carlin & Durick,
your eiurrpriseiiig merchants,
are our agents here, and they
will also handle our business at
Wardner."
Questioned as to the progress
• and extent of the work at Coal
'Creek, Mr. Smith.suid: "Wehave
now some 3li men at. work at the
mine. These include miners,
■ carpenters, blacksmiths, and
those employed in getting
timber for the mine.
"We have opened two tunnels
at the mine. Nol is ou the north
side of Coal Creek. This one is
already in about 2011 feet, and we
have driven in on the 7 foot seam
wherever possible, but at the beginning a slide of rock from
above had to be got out of the
way. The coal in this seam may
be properly described as a semi-
anthracite and in every respect
'•'rst class coking coal.
'On the south side of the
Creek we have driven in No. 1
liilinel.     This    penetrates    the
heart of of a 80 foot seam, and is
in solid coal for lhe whole distance. The quality of Iliis seam
is bituminous, anil a splendid
blacksmiths eoal, und we are already shipping it along theC. N.
By line to the forges usod in construction.
"The coal lies nearly horizontal, and the mouths of the tunnels are about 85 feet above the
grade for the railway track when
it is constructed. This will give
a favorable elevation for screen
ing, and result in a considerable
economy in the minng of tho
coal.
"When will thc railway be
constructed V Well as you know,
tho branch is about 4 miles long
and already thero are two gang!
at work doing the grading. The
branch will bo completed by
July noxt.
" Hy that time wo will bo in
readiness to ship any quantity of
coal that is likely to be desired.
In July next we will have at
least 10,011(1 tons on the dump.
Next month we will bo putting
out, about fill tons a day,, and by
tho time tin. railway is completed, this time next, year, we will
lie  iu readiness to ^^^^^^
800 tons a day."
"How many men will it require?"
"I should say 1100 men."
"What wages will be paid:'"
"To miners, lhe rale <>n the
Coast is 75 cents per ton. That
lis the llgure, I suppose, thutwill
apply here."
About your coking ovens,
do you intend erecting them
right away at the mines."
"Yes, our General Manager
Mr. Blakcinoro Ih now In the
old country, and by this time I
expect the brick for tho ovons
tire on their way out. It is impossible to tull what the demand for
coke may be, but wo intend to bo
in readiness to supply any demand there may be.
" Coal Creek is the name of
the townsite on th? Crow's Nest
Railway where tlie Junction between the main line and the
branch to the Coal mines will be
made. "This" said Mr.Sniith, "isi
the liveliest little town on lhe1
line.There are five grading outtils
there just now, also Iwo general
stores, a bakery, etc., and a commodious hotel is now being constructed. There is a tine sleigh
road from the Junction to tlie
mine."
Mr. Smith continued to talk
pleasantly of coal and the coal
prospects in the Province generally. He believes it will not be
t very long time before British
Columbia and lhe Canadian
Northwest will be the suppliers
of coal for the greater part of
the Continent, indeed he is of tlie
opinion that Canada some lime
will have a practical monopoly
of the coal of North America.
Mr. Smith leaves to-morrow
for the mine, and will take with
him five teams to bring back
coal for Carlin & Durick. A number of workmen also will accompany him.
The Kootenay Club Case.
On Tuesday last Messrs, H. D.
Henderson, F. P. Norbury and
M. A. Beale, respectively the
President, Vice President and
Secretary of the Kootenay Club
of this city, appeared before
Stipendiary Magistrate Armstrong charged by Constable
Barnes with infraction of the
liquor law by the sale of liquor
to members of the club.
Constable Barnes gave evidence to the effect that liquor
was kept in the Kootenay Club
and that it was being sold to
members, who gave Iheir 1.1 I.I'
for the amount charged for the
liquor, and at the end of each
month these I.O.Us. would be
settled for in cash.
Mr. Henderson admitted that
the evidence of the Constable
was correct, but he was not
aware llial llie Club in supplying liquor in this manner was
breaking any law of the country.
Similar Clubs existed iu nearly
all the cities and towns of any
size in thu Province, und they
had not been interfered with.
He could not see why an exception should be made of tho Kootenay Club. However the Club
did not desire to break any law
of the country, and if the course
they were pursuing was illegal
he would say that the Club would
immediately take out a license,,
and in all respects conform to
the law. But he would ask thai'
the magistrate adjourn the case
so that the opinion of the Attorney General could be had on tho
legal aspect of tlie null ter.
Tbe magistrate accordingly
adjourned the case* for one

PUBLIC SCHOOL PUPILS.
The Annual Concert and Christmas
Tree at the Opera Houso.
It was indeed a very merry
time lhat the pupils of the Fori
Steele Public School had at llie
annual Christmas gathering in
the Opera House last Wednesday
evening, For weeks past Miss
Bailey, tho teacher of tlio school,
had been very busy getting her
youthful pupils iu readiness for
the event, and the result, such a
great success in every respect,
must have been a source of great
and well'diism'ved satisfaction to
her.
The platform or stage had
been lengthened nearly one-half,
in order to permit of so many
children taking part in tlie performance at one time. Curtains
had been hung and dressing und
retiring rooms provided on each
side. Tlie stage Itself wus brilliantly decorated, lhe chief figure stationed towards the rear
being the Cristmas tree, laden
down with presents for tlie children, and many an enquiring
glance from the expectant pupils
told where the greater part of
their heart was resting that
night
R. L. T. Galbraith was chairman on the occasion, and to the
large gathering of citizens that
tilled the auditorium he told the
history of the public school of
Fort Steele, and also predicted
something of what was expected
si it in the future. A new school
building had now been built, but
indeed before it was fiuishished.
or even before it was begun, the
equirements of the city had out-
frown its accommodation. Hut
they would hope that what was
needed would be supplied,
though, to secure that, it would
be necessary to keep a watchful
eye on those who had to do witli
it in the Government. He paid
a high compliment to tlie efficiency of Miss Bailey ns a teacher, a reference which was heartily applauded, and .then proceeded with the programme of the
evening, which was as follows:

No one who wus not there can
possibly conceive flic zest and
spirit with which the pupils entered Into the business of the
evening, Muster Mclnnes' ad-
dross of welcome was spoken
brightly, and the song of welcome that followed from the full
chorus of the children was ex-

her,—all were tliere, and others
beside,  not forgetting the cow
that jumped over a most cytllca]
appearing muoll thai was tustl
I gated for the occasion by Abiier
Billbow Grace, maker of scenery.   "Thi'ee   Little   Kittens"
were represented by three small
boys standing  behind  canvass
painted to represent three very
large-sized cats whose countenances had been cut out and thc
boys' inserted  instead.   But it
was a most doleful ditty they'
sang.   Still everbody contrived
lo be merry over it, as they did
over nearly all the pieces, for
they were all very well done indeed, and the pupils have good
reason, each and every one of
them, to be proud of lhe success
they achieved.
But tliere were others besides
lhe pupils who took part in Ihe
programme. Miss Kershaw recited a piece telling of tlie
perplexities attendant on being
the wife of an inventor. In this
she displayed high talent as a
humorous and descriptive reciter, n quality that was further
shown in llie reading of ''Aunt
Tuliitliii." whicli was given in u
response ton determined encore.
Then there was a quartette of
male voices,—Messrs. Kundrel,
Quain, Burton, and McAllister.
They sang first "Hail, Jerusalem, Hail," a selection whicli
gave sufficient scope to display
four voices of excellent quality
and whicli harmonized finely together. They were of course
encored and sang a medley in
return.
Mrs. Corbett gave two humorous readings which produced
muoh applause, the latter effort
(a Caudle lecture) being in response to a recall. Master H.
Clark read a poem giving some
frontier experiences, und drew
out lhe loud plaudits of the audience.
After tlie programme had been
gol through with, then proceeded a drama more wildly exciting
Ihan any Unit had gone before,—
to wit, the distribution of the
presents from tlie Christmas
Tree. Nol one of the children
hut had one or more favors from
Old Santa, and not one of all of
our little friends, let us hope,
but was completely und wholly
unil indescribably happy.
About eleven o'clock they all
trooped out, and one moro Christmas party was over. How
many there are of such happy
gatherings that all of us can remember, faintly some of thorn,
and indistinctly, glimmering
through the droani of things
thnt were!
Public School Examination.
On Wednesday last the Christmas examination of the pupils
wus held by the chairman, K. L,
T, Galbraith, of the Board of
School Trustees. 'J'jie. pui)')B
were n*ii|i|!']nd In reading, dictation, geography, grammar and
""'.'.oiiietic, and their iiiiHWi.'i'ing
was very creditable, showing the
great pains that had been bestowed ill teaching the several
subjects, Tho chairman, in a
ileal and appropriate speech,
coiiipliiiienled the pupils on their
efficiency, and announced that
the holidays would commence on
that day, and that the new school
would be opened on tlie tilth of
January.

state,—and when that natural
condition has been interfered

Tlie vulgar habit of stuffing
one's front teeth wilh gold is
now forever discarded. And
none too soon. I remember
even as a child how the appearance of gold glittering ill my
auntie's teeth disgusted inc. And
afterwards, when dental operations were something more of
experience lo ine, I do confess
that to look into my auntie's

the hurly-burly of a workshop
in a woman's mouth. Oh, how it
splintered and ripped up all my
roniantical ideas of the elysium
of a lover's kiss. Had I been a
man and a lover the sight of
auntie's mouth would have turned
me cynic.
But I am neither man nor lover, still do I need a dentist to
look after my teeth, and many
others that I know here do, too,
sadly. So, Mr. Editor, appreciating, as I know you do, (at
least from reputation,) all that is
sweet in life, try to get us a den

UNCLE JERRY'S
CHRISTMAS. *

UNCLE JERRY Foster was too stingy
to live, and everybody
knew it. But every-
dy didn't know how poor Aunt
Hsey, his wife, had to manage
d contrive and skimp to get
mg,
; She never hnd tlie handling of
y money. Even the butter and
; money, thnt every farmer's
fo has for her own use, all went
0 Uncle Jerry's pockets; and if
•t wanted it new  gown or a
( *not or a pair o' shoes—I
!n't orter say if she wanted
, but if she must have 'em,
1 there wns no possible Birth-
vay for him to skin out o'
ting' 'em—thon Uncle Jerry
lid go to the store with her
, ' buy   em und pay for 'em.
i    ns if she was a child or au
i,  nnd Incapable   o' dowln'
iness on hor own hook.
' Aunt Betsey hadn't the best
iiisitioii   in  tlie   world,   she1
■liln'l have stood if all  Ihese
rs. As it wns, it wore on her,
wore on her fearful. Though
Ie Jerry was one o' the rich-
men in town, she might 'a'

•ir'blest, so fur's any outward
cation was consumed—or in-
■ d indications, either—for sho
alwers   half starved, und

us, as you might say.
nolo Jerry grow wus 'n'wus,
come along towards Christ-
,  ho got a bi'iin'-now crochet
savin' into his head. It was
unily devotion one morning',
before reading', that he di-
.iited it, to his wife. Hh finds
place in Nehomiar-ho al-
: read tlie long Chapters in
and   winter -and   puts  his
'  in   to    keek i it-    thon,
'in' on a long face, he looks

well be put in tho bank; she
didn' care." So sho thought ou
and on, not hardly sensin' the
prayer a mite
Sho went out to her work in
the kitchen feolin' all broke up
She didn't know why sho should
be, 'less she'd been kinder secretly hopin' to have Ellen and
the children. Christinas was
moro than she could bear. Tliere
wa'n't nothin' to her, no time, us
yon might say, and this was the
lust straw that broke the camel's
buck. At auy rate, all to once
she gave out and had to go ter
bed. The next mornin' she
could't got up, but Uncle Jerry
didn't think much about it, but
s'posed she'd be up biuieby*. but
when lie come into dinner, there
lay liis wife jest tho sume, as if
she hadn't no thoughts o' gettin'
up.
Ho didn't know what unilei'
the sun to do, but ho knew he
must do somethin', ho lie hot a
brick and put to her feel, and
was jest making a mustard plaster to put on her somewheres
when Mis' Hopkins happened in.
Hhe see how it was witli Aunt
BetSe-y in a minute. Site's awful
cute about some things, Mis'
Hopkins is, Hlxl site ain't afraid
o' no man livin'.
'Uncle Jerry," says she, matter of fact as you please, "your
wife is a very sick woman, and
she's goin' lo die right olf, I'm
afraid, 'less we hyped round und
do somethin', and do it quick.
But fust I'd better slop over and
fetch the doctor."
Uncle Jerry wus wonderful
took down. All of a sudden lie
realized Hint liis wife was invnl-!
ooable to him; he fell Hint he
could not gel along without her,
nohow. He wns ns anxious to i
have lhe doctor (is Mis' Hopkins
was. and lold her lo hurry und
bring him,
So >■,"  wenl - I;
Iiy    n ", -      .i.m him;
"Do n' I . now is your

and pin ,i spoke in Uncle Jerry
Poster's win .I for ull time! If
he's gol uny heart and feelin's
you must Iinil 'em for his wife's
sake. It would be cruel to bring
her back to life, 'less you could
do somethin' to make that life
ondoorable. Don't, I beg ou ye,
raise her up to live on in tho
same old skimpy, miser'blo way!
Better let her die and done with
it."
They discussod and considered
over the matter for a few minutes, thon went togethor to the
houso.
Thoy found Aunt Uotsoy lay-
in' jest the same only she stopped
cryin'. Tho doctor examined her
and diaggei'iiosed her case as
well as ho could, then he motioned Uncle Jerry out into the
other room and shot, the door
behind him.
It seems the doctor took him
awful solium and in dead earnest, und says ho, lo begin witli:
"Uncle Jerry, do you set high
when you married lier, nml tell
me if you think there's a difference. Now, they're different
from your wife, and why?
I ask you fair and candid, why
shouldn't she look as happy, be
as happy, and make as good
'pearance every way  as  thorn
pealln', her lips tromblin'
she was goin' to cry.
I'm sorry lo put you lo so
much expense, husband. I'm
afraid—I'm afraid il ain't wuth
while!"
He gol up nnd blowed his nose
wilh all his might und main.
"I want you to get well, Betsey, I want you to gel well!" he
managed to say.
The strangest expression come
inlo her face yon ever see in any
creature's. Then, as if struck
by soinethin' in liis looks, she
seemed to gel a dim idee lhat lie
wns different, and she tried to
mako oul how it was, but couldn't

think much, she jest shut hor j

"Exit lhe Prospector" is the

Western Mining World attacking
tin- hill to amend the United

in cash within niuly days, in
addition to the discovery of minerals uml the sinking of the
grounds, or forfeit, his rights.
Ho must do $500 worth of work
within live yeiirs and apply font
patent, involving the expenditure
of £!i an acre additional for a
trnel of forty acres, lo say
nothing of the incidental expenses of obtaining a patent, or lose
his properly. Ho cannot assign
or sell the lode he has discovered, giving a valid quil claim-title
to his iiileresls, until he has put
up $100 within ninty days after
locating thu ground. Annual
representation amounting to $100
may be paid in cash or by work
on the claim. If by \vork he
must make lioi) feel of excavation

A Canadian engineer has evolved a now theory to account for
forest fires. While with a government surveying party recently in tbo Northwest hu happened
to catch a tree in tlie very act of
setting tire lo itself. It was this
way: Tho tree had been partly
uprooted by a severe wind storm,
and leaned over against lhe trees
nearest to it, some of whicli happened to be dead. Fierce gusts
blew down from the neighboring mountains and caused the
branches of the inclined tree to
rub with considerable force
against those upon which it
rested. After the friction thus
developed had been kept up for
many hours, the dead wood upon which it was exerted lirst began to glow, then burst into
