There are many resi- dences built on the hills to the north of the track. The main street has some good business houses. Nearly every line of business is represented. Be- sides the payroll of the mines there Is also that of the logging camps around Coleman. Nearby Is clay suitable for making bricks. This Is one of the youngest towns in the Pass but it will continue Its steady growth of the past few years. International Coal Coke Co. The coal nine and coke ovens of the International Coal Coke Co., of Cole- man, furnish employment to a large number of men whose pay cheques amount to a considerable sum. Snow sheds cover the tracks leading from the inlne to the tipple, where the coal is screened. The run of mine coal is loaded into cars on a siding under the tpple, while the fine slack coal is trans- ported on electric larry hopper carg running on top the coke ovens. The hopper bottom is opened and the oven is charged with the coal. As the oven rooms upstairs were furnished by the council and citizens of the village, and are used by the volunteer fire brigade under Chief Graham. The equipment eet The council chamber is also in the build- ing Coleman has a splendid waterworks eystem with a great gravity pressure from a reservoir up on the mountains. It is good water for household use and tnere is a powerful pressure, very viceable in case of fire. ELECTRIC LIGHT The streets and buildings of Cole- man are lit by electric light furnished by the International Coal and Coke The lights are giving satisfaction, BOARD OF TRADE Colemun Board of Trade have done many things, and all the leading men take a great interest in it. W. L. Oul- mette is president, and Harry Parks is secretary. Owing to their efforts the Soo-Spokane Flyer will now stop at Coleman when there are passengers to hall. The secretary has an office in one corner of the first floor. The Eagle's Nest The Order of Eagles are building a fine brick hall for lodge purposes, and for use of any large public meeting. This is the first brick building in CoJeman. Another improvement Is the excava- tion of the bed and the building of a bridge across the creek that flows through the east end of the village, R. N. W.

This is an important outpost in their patrol of Western Canada, Government Telephone Coleman has been the western term- inal of the Alberta telephone system, but recently has been connected at Crows Nest with the Kootenay tele- phone lines of B.

When cooled suf- ficiently the uoor is opened and a man rakes the coal out of the oven on to a. Jj platform from which it is shovelled in- to cars. Box cars, cattle cars or coke racks are used, for the coke being much lighter, is piled higher than coal. These coke ovens are a novel sight to the stranger who arrives in the night and asks, dont they put out that As the wind veers from the east to the west or vice versa, the citizens of Coleman watch the blaze and escaping gases of the coke ovens and thus prophesy a storm or a warm Chinook.- Coleman Beautiful During the strike this summer the' village council employed men In grad- j ing the" streets, trimming the natural shade trees, thus adding to the beauty of Coleman. The International Coal Coke Co. gave the town a park OL 40 acres of partly wooded land lying adjacent tt and just north of the village. This public playground has been named Flummerfelt Park, after the present nead of the company. Already uas been spent on making improve- ments. This park will prove a very convenient recreation ground for the citizens. An open air skating rink has been fixed up for me winter in a sheltered notch of the hill. In the summer the tennis court Is well patronized. The Coleman Football Club won the ilutz cup in competition with teams from other towns in The Pass. Ffre Hall Coleman has a nice frame fire hall which was erected this summer. The habit. Sell Photos Over the Bar Coleman has three hotels but only the Colemaa House and the Grand Un- ion have bars. The Pacific has no license, and its bar room is now used by a photographer, who sells Coleman views over the bar. The International Coal and Coke Co. sell land on the con- dition that no liquor can be sold on the premises. Public School The public school trustees are: a regular jand arrangements are being completed for the blasting of a hill so that a bet- ter wagon road will join the two. The village council of Coleman are now taking steps to secure the incor- poration of Coleman as a town. But if the present rate of development con- tinues all along the valley It will not be Jong before the different towns will begin to consider amalgamation in one large, long valley city, with a municipal owned electric railway binding them together. If they keep on growing they will grow till they meet together along the valley. only temporary, for the company pur poseo tunelling into the hill south of the present opening. In the meantime i coal Is being shipped from Coleman I station, and it is necessary to haul the coal with teams from the mine mouth: to the depot. The electric railway' wUJ commence operations as soon as the power house is complete. As this mine is so near Coleman the pay chesues of this new company will benefit the business men of Cole- man as well as the new stores soon to be established at Carbondale. Farquharson and Boisjoli, whose head office is in Fernie, have three camps at Colemaa. These camps are employing over a hundred men and more will be needed after New Years. They are busy getting out a large sup- ply of mine props and mine timbers to fill contracts for the International Coal and Coke Co., of Coleman, and several mines on the prairie. They al- so have the contract to supply saw logs to the Gibson Lumber Co. at their mill three and a jalf miles north of Cole- man. They have another camp at Morrisey Jet, B.C., for supplying cedar fence posts, telegraph poles and piling. They carry on hand one of the largest stocks of such poles to be found In either B. 3. or Alberta.
