concert Saturday night in honor of
their delegate Mr. Jas.- Webster,- who
had just returned froni Winnipeg.
After songs,speechesetc.,Mr. Webster*
was called forward and presented witli
an address and a handsome clock. Mr.
Webster who was completely taken
by susprise 'replied in a" few well
chosen words.
On Wednesday moi ning half a dozen
Japs were started to work in the C.'P.
R. shops. The white employees did
not look upon thin "inovat-'on with
favor and plainly gave the officials fo
understand this. "And in about half
an hour the said Japs were given their
walking tickets and the air ia ones
more cleared. Thin should ��� be ��
warning to all mechanics in this city,
as no doubt a further more will be
made hereabouts to employ tha little
brown men. It is alleged that were
Japs allowed to liecome familiar with
the working customs of thi* place that
ere long a horde of. tha mongcl
mechanics from the Orient would
soon fill the places of the men now-
engaged here. Already considerable
of the repair work of the Empresses is
done on the other side of tbe Pacific���

The report of the Inter State Commerce Commission to 30th Juue, 1901,  deals with the first year in which all  railway freight cars not equipped with  automatic couplers have been turned  off the. lines, and only automatic  couplers used.' The - situation is so  remarkable that the railway companies  and the public of this country should  give it their best consideration. This  act was passed in 1893. At first it was  not compulsory, and the United States  railroads proceeded very slowly to alter  their rolling stock and to fit automatic  couplers according to the extent of  their humanity or the lack of it.  Nevertheless, even with such partial  equipment there was a steady decrease  in accidents year by year, but slow  progress made it necessary to resort to  compulsion. The tables of figures  given in that report and reports from  1K93 onwards reveal that the number  of inen annually killed and injured  when engaged mcouplingand uncoupling cars has fallen since 1893 no less  than 03 per cent in killed and over 80  per cent in injured. The numbers of  men employed in ihunting in this  country is notlrng like as great as on  the United States* railroads, nevertheless the ratio of our own railway men  killed and injured during 1900, the last  year for which full returns have jbeen  issued, was nearly as bad as the United  States record,1893. Had this terrible  record been continued cin tlie States  year by year to this date, no less than  1 .G&Vkilied and 42.333 injured, in all  ���������1*1,118 more railroad men. who now  have been saved by automatic, couplings, would have.suft'ered,-while, had  that'law beeu made compulsory when  tii-st passed, at least 15,000 more would  have beeu added to this largearniy of  industrial workers who are yet alive  und at work. TheUnited States annual  railroad returns close on theSOthJune,  ���������and���������the���������enforcenient���������of���������automatic  couplers, brakes and other appliances  is thus referred to in this latest report  of the commission:���������"This decrease is  due primarily, if not entirely,   to  the  ** .  Safety Appliances Act. The impression  left from a study of table 1 is strongly  corroborated by the reports of accidents  for the month of July, 1901, thesebeing  the first monthly returns sent to the  tYiiuuiitfsion under the law of March  1901.    According to these returns only  four employe* were killed during that  month while coupling and  uncoupling  cars.    11 would not. of course,  be  ������al't*  to assume that the month of July in a  -   typical monlh so far  as  accidents are  concerned, but making due allowance  mi thia account, the repoits  for July  mid subsequent  months warrant lh������  expectation   that casualitiea    due    lo  coupling and uncoupling  cars   will   he  less for 1902   than   for   1001,   that,  the  great     improvement     in     conditions  which wai experienced under the  fit*!  year's operation of the law will In. still  more marked in the second year.   For  the-last   year   which   hau   lieen   fully  reported (year* ending June 30,  liKiO)  th*   number   of    killed   in   coupling  accidents averaged 2&J a monlh, i.e..  a drop from 25} men killed per month  in 1000 to possibly 4 per month iu 1002  What   will    interest    railway   nharr-  holders and railway management still  moie closely ia that the commissioners  testify to the time  saved   in despatch  and    traffic  by     life    of    uu tomtit ic  couplers and ellicient brakes, and add  that '���������railway officers have testified to  a large saving   in   the  cost  of doing  '    work in the yards," that yards which  COLUMBIA RIVER  KHOR SALE  This Ice will be delivered  every day at your door.

Crow's Nest Coal  Mines.
* The history of lhe Crow's Nest co'id
iiiiiies where ;this'- frightful disaster
bci'uri't'd is. as is tlie.cnsa of so .liiany
.western mines, full of roinnncv. ���
Some' people say they are the most
valuable on .the whole continent and
yet ii'l'cw years ago no one would look
nl. tliiMii. It was ih_ 1SS5 that the littt
l-ii.il yvas di.sc*iivc*re.il in lhe Crow's Nest
Pass. Willi un -ind Peti*r Ki-rnie w��*ie
cult in'.; a I mil for the guvei iiiiient
when lhey came 11c10i.su It-foot seam
cropping out over a 1 trek. They were
1111L lo iking fcir conl at-the time and
thought so little of the find that ihey
said nothing abuitt it, till a year
iificfwaids. At thnt'tinie Dr. Dawson
the late head of the- Cinadiiu and
Geological 'nnd Mines Department,
when making a geological survey of
the Kiss, also found a beam of coal IS
inches thick. It was his busine.is to
know Lhe giound uiui he gave it as his
opinion thnt Urge coal deposits would
he found whine t'nut indication was.
Dr. D.iWhon lived long enough to see
his prophecy fullilled. The report of
Dr. Dawson may or in ty nor have had
senile effect on William Fui-nie, hut at
any rate he went hack to the Pass iu
1SS7 with Col. IB.iker, ' the former
.Minister of Education -and Crimean
veteran, who was long a 'familiar ,
ligure in political circles in British
Columbia. The two tramped many'a
long ancl weary day, but their trouble
was rewauleil us.they found numerous *
large seams of excellent bituminous .
coal Col. Baker found that the Pa��s
was admirably suited for a line of
railway. Seeing that lhe value cf the
coal was nil without such a railway, he"
wrote to Mv. (now Sir William) Van
Hume, president of the Canadian
Pacific railway, calling his attention to
the fact of the new discovery." It
seems strange to have to report .that
the teply he leceived was that the
Canadian Pacific had no interests in
that [portion of the country. Then *-
began those weary days when Colonel' '<
Baker's voice was,as Lhe voice of. one
speaking in the wilderness. He then .,
pieached of the riches of the Crow's
Nestand'tlie need of the road of"steel.
He woiked also at exploring the route
of the proposed line 'fioni the- Pa'ss to ���
Kootenay liake aiid he found no diffi ���
culties to speak of.
Then hu ti ied the C.P.R.  again' and
Mr." Van.Home was obliged  Lo give in .���
to him.'    The   railway   man;sent*an,
expc-it, Air. Jtied. of Alorilieal,' to make
.1 -lough   survey   of' the   Pass.     Mr.
Rein came, saw .and   was   conquered.
���His report,  was   eminently favorable.
But Col. Baker's  difficulties  were  fur
from being at^an end.     British Columbia was not then the* Mecca of, many "
miners,   save   those   who   weie'* far-
.sighted.     Much   had   to   be   endurud
before a railway was-running through
IhePassl   Fernie established ���11'iid rthe'-'
mines opened'up. '���-The1 first' thing to
be done was to secure'*a" charter-[fir a  .
railway. Being tho member for South-   '
east   Kuulenay,    he ( inliochieed .  tlie,s
Biitisli 'Columbia Southern   Rail way-
Bill into the House at Victoria  for a, '
line to  be/170   miles   long.   He   then'
went to London'  to' get   capital,   th.'j
C.P.'R.' beinw;  disinclined  lo take  the,
matter up.    He was inforined* by1 the'
financiers   that -he must - get   assist-,'
.nice Irom   the   pi ovincial "legislatuie
and he came  back, for   that, purpose   ,
and was successful.   .He.obtained land .-
grants and of comse in : those "grants
much of the coal lands were included.'
Soon after the passage of.the subsidy
act, the   Crow's   Nest  Coal -Co,  was
formed,   which   purchased  from    the
government 10,000 acres"'of -ths- coiil'''
lands which'Fernio'and' Baker-fouud^   '
The-I.itter went to London* to" float his'"
compnny, but-was headed off-by -the
C.P.R-, which,-"*.hile'ltien'.not -able logo in for the railway'tonstruction/gtill
"did not  desire   that-outsiders-should
gel' hold of  what  might  be-and  did,
become���a most valuable portion of its
territory.   ' .
This was in 1801.. Col. Baker had
almost succeeded iii getting a wealthy
syndicatetointerestitself in the matter
when this"dit_app6iatment came to
hitn'r-Butrlie co'ritina'ed'tb'loblc fo'riiew'���
capital. He went to New York,' Chi-
'cago^St.jPaii^andiSan Francisco,; but',
everywhere found that the.great rail,
jvav* corporation was-too- much , for...
hiin.- Finally rCol., Baker jind other
shareholders communicated with Mr.
���irowland,, of ..Toronto,,, with,- Messrs.
'Hanson & Gault, of Montreal, and the
Messrs.' Coates'tfc f Jo;, tne" well 'known '
London bankers.'An arrangement was
come to whereby the shareholders of ,
the B.C. Southern railway relinquished
five-sixths of the stock on the company
'on condition that thc 1 nil way should
be proceeded with and* that $40,000
should be expendecfon the lineatonce.
This wa.s done. Then came thc failures
of so many American railways and the
appointmentof receivers. The financial
depression whicli ' was coincident
pi evented anything being done under
the new arrangement and finally the
C.P.R had to be interviewed again.
c. i\ U COMKS) IX
���'" The great railway thought the' time
had come when thc line should be built
and it stepped.up'to, the mark. The
Canadian Pacific wns given the option
tc 1 take over the line on condition thnt
it paid the shareholders the amount
they, had expended on surveys, etc.
It may seem strange that all this
trouble was taken for just a line of
railway, but the shareholders in the
Ii. C. Southern wore also the shareholders in thc coal company and they ���
had to h.tve the line. The railway iu
now running, and the coal mines alio.
Most of the shares of the coal company
are held in the east, but not afewlocat���
people made competencies out of theui
when the stock went sky- high after-
thebuildingoftheline. Some sensational incidents occurred when the eastern
poope got possession- of the coal
company. An organization waa formed
in Toronto with Messrs. - Janes and
Lukes in it.- But they failed to bring
cheir scheme to a successful issue and
Robert Jaffray and Senator Cox
secuied the Company.' -Interested
with them wero other well "known
eastern capitalists. "When the Dominion government saw how valuable
thc coal fields were likely to be Hon.
Mr. Blair, Minister of Railways, made
it a condition that some of the coal
fields should . be "given- up " to. the
Dominion and this was done. It wa*i
only the other day that thc Dominion
made its selection. WAii. PAPERS  We have them in all  the new designs for the  year. See our.samples  if you are going to  paper.  CanadaDru$&.
