OUR COAL LANDS The policy of leasin coal lauds instead of soiling them such means to attract attention. It is just as that a lot of little two-by-four Innks going out of business. In most cases they are poorly managed and are in existence to serve the ends of some individual, drop out of exist- Thc sooner they ence the bolter. The Montreal Gazette, a stronp Conservative journal, Ifcis this dig at the Conservative obstructionists in Parliament: There is talk at Ottawa of a ten days' adjournment of Parliament in order that members may take part in the Quebec Ii-'-.'S1, provided the business of the session is not finished by July 17.

He thinks thai they should be alienated in perpetuity and his reason for thinking so is that prospectors no longer find it worth their while to look for coal lands. It may be pointed out, however, that the in- terests of the general public ate of much greater import than those of a few prospectors, who hope, to maki- fortunes out oi coal speculations. The coal resources of Western Canada are sufficiently well known for the country to dispense with any aid. which may be derivable from pros- pectors and speculators. Such aid is usually necessary in the early of the mineral development of People iiro gettiifg the of business methods Parliament, have lost interest in hat Parliament does, and if they re further disgusted by u re-assemb- of the m.-inb'Ts in August, may o things at thi> m'xt .'K-ctiou that surprise the incapables.

NOW LOOK CUT FOR ANECDOTES (Chicago Tribune) TAFT C Spedul IJ ncl a country; but there comes a time, when such services become unwar- rantably expensive, because prospec tors are apt to lead the investing public into unsound ventures; anc to induce folk to give them something for nothing. So that prospecting i generally synonymous with specula tion. The government now only lease coal lands. The leases may not b for longer than 21 years; and ar granted ou the condition that th coal is worked within a year of th date oi issue. The lessee has, uior over, to pay a ground-reut oi SI pt acre per annum, aud a royalty on tl output of b cents a ton. The grounc rent is a second safeguard again the holding of coal lands for speci lation; and the whole tendency of the regulations is to compel opera- tion at an early date. Mr. Herrou argues that the lease discourages a man or company of men from sink- ing capital in the requisite machinery to develop a mine; and the best reply that can be given to that is the fact that there have been 64 licenses is- sued since June 15, 1Q07; The op- position, in Parliament, have time and again posed as the guardians of the public's interests in connection with the disposal of natural resourc- es of the country. But Mr. Herron shows whose interests they have most at heart. And is it not the intellects of the men of the prairie, who want cheap coal, but of capitalists and sp-jcuLitors, who "toil not neither do thfy but somehow manage to increase the cost of everything they happen to matter whether it be grain, beef, timber or coal. Vlt-x. of this city claims to be the first man to have discovered jresulenliul timber in William How ird Taft. "When Willie Taft. was a iule lad, about knee high to a said he today, "1 see him out back of the burn one day studying a. a book.

Skimrnerhorn of this city is authority for the statement that she was once the .sweetheart oi William Howard Tnu. and still thinks ot hiui with considerable tenderness. When interviewed last evening she blushed modestly at the soft impeachment, and asserted that it was true. "We had quite an affair when were in grammar school together. Willie was ten years old. Nothing serious ever came of i'. because I thought there was a great disparity in our ages, and papa thought it not wise for us to wed." Miss de Skimmer- horn did not wish to tell her age. but she looks it whatever it uiuy be. was becomingly costuuie-il in a heath gown. Bird Jas. T.

As most of these purchases were at a time when the property of the Company was only a very ex- cellent prospect, the investor had to depend almost wholly upon my faith in the proposition, as indicated by the fact, that I withdrew from all other engagements, and devoted my time and energy exclusively to the promotion, the company, and the management, under the directors, of its affairs without salurv. 1 naturally appreciated very highly the confidence thus displayed by these people in my judgment, and am anxi- ous that they should secure the best possible results from their invest- ments. Under the circumstances, therefore, 1 may be pardoned lor venturing to GET YOUR I GERMAN'S SHOES AT the Great Lakes and the Gulf of St Lawrence; today it extends from th Atlantic to the Pacific and from th United States to the North Pole Then, ihe people were divided bj unit, all being united in the brpthor- advise them not to dispose oi their shares at the present time, although the prices now being eflered represent a very considerable profit to them. The property, I am. happy to say, is no longer merely a prospect, for, al- though its actual value has 'not yet been fully demonstrated, there is very much better reason today for the pri- ces now quoted for shares than there was for the figures at which the per- sons in question originally pur- chased. My personal opinion is that there is no investment available today as good as-the .shares-oi the Canadian- Northwest Oil the pre- vailing prices, and that unless share- holders required money for very spe- cial purposes, they ought not to dis- pose of their holdings.
