Fer-pie, at one time connected witli tlie Dominion Coal Co., is hero examin-im: coal properties in soulhejn Capo Breton, in tlie interest, it is said, of the Canadian Pacific Railway, tliat company being anxious to secure its own coal supply in Eastern as well as Central and Western Canada. I PROFESSOR ARMANDS The City of Yesterday Or the San Francisco Earthquake (Winnipeg Free Press.) A little comj)arison of prices uf various grades of coal a� purcliased in Western Canada may prove interesting. In Winnipeg American anthracite, all the way from Pennaylvania, is sold at .f!l0.50 per ton down to No. 2 nut alze, which is retailed at $0 per ton. American soft coal for domestic purposes is eold at $8 io $9 per ton. Lothbiidge nnd Taber coal from the Alberta mines is sold ttt $d, Souris coal brings from $5.00 to $5.50 per ton. Canadian anthracite does not find its way from Banff and Bankiioad to this city. At Moosomin, 210 miles west of Winnipeg, Pennsylvania anthracite is sold at $12.60 per ton and liere Banff anthracite) comes into the market, being sold at M0.50 per ton, tiie exact price at which Pennsylvania an-tliracite is sold in Winnipeg. Taber coal is sold in Moosomin at $B.50 per ton. Moosomin is 641 miles from Lethbridge nnd 703 miles from Banff. Moosomin is 645 milos from Fort William and the. latter town is some little distance from the Pennsylvania mines, but of course, a largo part of the haul of Ameiican coal to Fort Williom is over the water route. At Moose Jaw the price of Lethbridge coal is inuoii the same as at Moosomin and Banff. Anthracite is .1:10.50. At botl) Regina and Moose Jaw, 585 and 524 miles, respectively, from Banff, the price of Canadian anthracite is the same as that of Pennsylvania anthracite in Winnipeg- The Saskatoon Phoonix has lately been devoting some attention to the coal quesiion md makes the statement tliat Edmonton coal, which is thought to be a really satisfactory domestic fuel, should bo laid down t.liere at $5 per ton. Aa the price of Lethbridge coal at Regina, is much the same as at Winnipeg, it would seem that Edmonton coal whicli could be so}i\ at Sa.skatoon for $5 a ton could be sold here at not more than $6 per ton. In view of the fact tliat We�t.ern Canadian coal of good qualitj-', botli liard and soft, exists in vast deposits I and tliat it can be distributed over tlie. vast prairies without duty restrictions, it would seem reasonable o "expect that people should be able to it at much less cost than corre.sponding grades of Pennaj'lvan-coal, even io of apirits, t*a or t)eer excite tho kidneys 1 Aro you easily worried and anni)yre iniit. . was disposed of yesterday at '> ii in., Inspector West nnd Miihi'sirnto S . 1.ay ton. Dr. W. li. Hawk, a veterinary sm--Rcon, being the witnesb', said: I live at Medicine Hat and was at Grassy Lake on tho IBlh of October. was slaying at the Lake Hotel in room number five. I le't niy grip in my room while 1 attended to my business at the stock, yards icing uwtty until evening. My grip was unlocked.

Tho .shells exhliibit "(!" are also similar to mine. When I misRed my revolver I wrote to Constitlilo C. .1. Coleridge of Grassy Lake, informing him of my loss. Constable Coleridge, said: "On the ].")th of October I received a eom-nmnication from Dr. Hawk, stating thut a ..'W Colt's rovolver had been taken from his grip at tho Grassy Lake hotel. Ho asked me to keep nil eyo open for it. 1 spoke to tho night clerk, Wairen Rooso, telling hitix to look out for this gun. Tho prisoner, Charles Hussie, arrived on the 12th, from Tnber. Koosa said. Ilussio tried to sell him n revolver, doscribing tho gun to liim as a .38 Colts rovolver witli six shells, nil of which were catclied in a h(de in tho ground about a milo north of town by tho side of n ditch.
