A deal of considcra,ble financif i For some time pan it has been magnitude and of the utmost com mercial importance to this section, and' particularly to the city oi Letbbridge, has just been consummated in connection with what is known as the Black Diamond mining property. A company of influential promoters has taken over the concern and on Friday last the final arrangements were completed in the organization of the company, which will be known as the Bnlwell Coal & Iron Mininp; Co., Limited.
