Dir. Hogue. when seen yesterday.
nnve some figures and fact with re
gard to the shipment of coal to these
fctlandtt. showing how the Australian
coal holds the front rank here. He
Stated that while in former - days.
When only about 10.000 Jons of coal
were used a year here, this had been
supplied entirely from Australia. Now
the consumption of coal in these isl
ands runs up to about 200.000 tons a
year, and coal Is sent here not only
from Australia, but also from British
Columbia and Puget Sound.
Coal Is used here entirely for the
purpose of creating steam power.
large pumping plants and ocean, go
ing steamers consuming the greater
part of the supply. The Australian
coal caii be supplied here cheaper.
or as cheaply as the conl from the
Pnclnc coast, the only reason for
using the latter being that it can be
brought here quicker on a rush order
than can be done from Australia.
Prices and Freight Rates.
The price of coal ranges from $2.50
to it.lB in Australia. In British
Columbia coal of good quality costs
front $4 to $4.50 a tou. and coal of
Inferior quality $8.50. Puget Sound
eeal costs from $2.50 to ?S.50 a ton.
AH these prices are for the coal de
livered Iree on board ship.
The freight rates from British
Colombia and Puget Sound to thesoi
islands hare ranged from $3.50 to
S4.G6 a ton, while the freight from
Australia is uniformly $4 per ton of

morning in the front parlor of his res-

gas was flowing from one of the jets,
and asphyxiation was the cause or
death. The unfortunate young man
had taken off his shoes and reclined,
on a sofa. He left no note, and his'
family believe that his death was not J
voluntary. There were three gas

fell asleep and did not awake until

of illuminating gas. The pillow

Good Security for First Mortgage
At the meeting of stockholders of

$100,000 of preferred stock was rati-
tied by a three-fourths majority of the
stockholders. A large portion ot this
issue has already been subscribed by
the ordinary stockholders, amounting
in all to about $50,000.
Street rumor has it that this action
on the part of the stockholders will
give into the treasury $100,000 of new
bonds and $50,000 or more of prefer
red stock, which the directors are au
thorized to apply or use as security
in connection with certain loan ar
rangements which have recently been
made between this company and one
or two financial institutions. The
present capital stock is $500,000 of
ordinary stock, all paid in, $100,000
of preferred stock .and $300,000 of
It is said that by the time crop op
erations begin there will have been
expended over one million dollars on

vested is about 3.500 tons, and as the
