One can readily seo that.the above statement is absolutely rect. If a local consumer at Hosmer or lion of this town the excessive cost of i rose to 54.00; if it went to Calgary the price 'was per ton, and if it went to Nelson or Spokane the price was mining. Whereas, tlie CP..K. and the G.N.ll. themselves, beins the great producers, they manoeuvre the mar- ket to suit themselves. In other words, they mine coal as one com- nany a town of 5000 cannot boast of pany, and sell it to themselves as an- siicj, as a water system, electric light, l oilier company, which; apparently is proaching this city, obscuring tho sun at mid-day and giving a sharp tang to the hot, lifeless air.
