Crane nnd Lloyd Rosa returned Sundny from a few days camping trip in the Billings and Eden Prairie Country on the South Fork of the Co quillo river. They brought back with them samples of the coal known as Eden Prairie coal. It is if the very best grade of bituminous coal and is a fine cooking coal and some of it is good blacksmith coal. There have been a number of shafts sunk in tho coal district at Eden Prairie and there nro indica tions of millions of tons of the very best grade of coal. The only draw back to this great coal field is the lack of transportation, as there is not even a wagon road within ten miles of it. However, wagon roads would not be sufficient to handle tho output of coal that could be taken from these fields. It would need a railroad, and tho pro position to build a road from Ban don to Grants Pass through this sec tion is receiving tho nttention of largo eastern capitalists. Tho shipping of this coal alone, it is said, would pay big dividends on tho rnilroad for many years to come.
