DYNAMITE EXPLODED AT MINE WinnipeiT 'IVibune.- An important deal in western coal lands was- I'on-cliided a few days ago. It was the sale of the Tal>er Coal Company's projierty, a short tlistanco iroiii Ijelhlnidge, to an Aiiwrican .symli -i!ate of cai>italiKls headed by O. A. Itoborlson, the well known speculator, who has operated in the Noith-west so extensively and successfully the l.-vst four or five years. The Taber Coal mine consisted oi a territory ooverinjU nearly ten thousand acres of land with the same fleposit of coal as that owned by (he On lis anil operaled .so successfully for years. The men who comprised the Taber Coal Co. and who owned and operated the Tabor mines were ((vntleinon well knov.'ri in Winnipeg and comprised Mr. .1. Stanley Howell, the tmrrister. Mr. D. K. Adams, the coal: man, Mr. Isaac Cockburn, sccivtary of the lumermen's asNocintion, Mr. .1. VV. Ilettes. real estate ag-ent, and Wiw Canon Itogers, brother of the linn II. Uogors. This company has been operating tho mine for some time, bivving in-'ve.sted about a humlred thousand dollars in the enterprise. More c.ip ital was needed to put tho nec:s  sary amount of go info tho ISecently an offer of JtiOO.nOtJ for the projierty was submitted on b^--half of the above n.amcd people, and after some consideration it was i^v cepted. It is understood that 'Wcli of the above mehtloned gentlemen will clear the snug sum, of S'lO.OOO.

I write to inform you that tho nriiclc under heading Cro.s.s Sword.-j" in your issue of August KVth, is altogether inaccurate. Tho railwny company did not make the thr.^ it nvcntioned, nor any threat. But for the unfortunate illness ot Vancouver of Mr. William. Whyte, the-argument betAveeii tho town and the railway would have been amicably si*ttlefe-senting the company had not t-n' power to grant the- town's ref|UistK nor the inforinat ion to answer same. Coir.inunication with Mr. Whyte has removed all difficulties and the ne;v line was placed in operation on Saturday, 18th inst. Yours truly, E. P. McXF.II.L. Macleod, August 20, 190(1.
