Patriotic insurrection - the leadership of the mining movement to uphold the national justice
Shanxi is rich in underground mineral deposits, especially coal reserves. After the opium war, the imperialists coveted the mineral resources of shanxi. In the twenty-third year of guangxu (1897), the bureaucratic comprador liu (that is, the novel author of LaoCan travel notes) bowing and scraping, approved by the shanxi provincial governor hu hire, sells shanxi mining rights to the Italian Rosa first. It was initially kept secret, even confidential. It was strongly opposed by the people of shanxi. The corrupt and incompetent qing government has cheated public opinion, and in the meantime, the matter is returned to the prime minister's government. Under pressure from the British minister, in May 1898, the Sino-British both sides signed the shanxi mining company and transport all kinds of articles of association of mineral, pacify, Yu County, LuAn, jersey, hide, pingyang, coal and iron ore rights owned by the British commissioner ShangFu company, 60 years. In 1905, in Shanxi Province, he asked to issue a mine voucher, and insisted that the mines be owned by British companies and not be mined by local traders. This led to a vigorous patriotic movement. In this struggle, the canal has played an important role.
Guangxu 31 years (1905), pingdingzhou was the first to set up the mineral association, the resistance against British business forced mining. At the same time, provincial citizens and youth students rallied to demand recovery of mining rights. Taiyuan people from all walks of life in haizi edge for ore campaign rallies, canal this become warped in a speech on the stage, showed his will and shanxi fellows in a determined to take mine in Shanxi Province's resolute attitude, favored by the audience. Since then, canal Ben warped the difficult mission of the struggle of the Shanxi Province.
In the thirteenth year of guangxu (1907), shanxi officials in Beijing held a meeting in Shanxi Province to decide the establishment of "shanxi mining insurance company". Canal Ben was promoted to be the first general manager of the company.
In the struggle of the people of shanxi, the company had to agree to return the mining rights and the people of shanxi to redeem the rights. Through several negotiations between China and the UK, the amount of the total amount of the purchase is 2.75 million taels of silver, which is made up four times and is required to deliver half of the amount in one month. This is a considerable amount of money. It is a big problem for the newly established insurance company. The empty, debt-ridden government in the fuku has been unwell. The company therefore set the date of the payment in such a hasty and demanding manner, that it would like to borrow the provisions of the contract to make payment in arrears and default on the contract, so as to make it difficult for the family to pay the money for the mine.
At the critical moment, canal Ben was up and taking on the task of raising money. He himself returned to his hometown, and first mobilized his father, uncle, uncle and the rich businessman of qi county to lend heavily. And then to pingyao, taigu, and so on, and so on, and so on, so as to make sense. Qi, too, 3 to help Banks and business showed great patriotic enthusiasm, "all the Banks in order to ensure the jin province reputation both recognize first get a short term loan, never letting a stranger", actively raise the required funds, and the secret to the foreign bank cheque.
On the twentieth day of the fourteenth year of guangxu (1908), the Chinese government and the general public were present at the ceremony to redeem the mine. When canal Ben warped 1375, 000 silver checks to the British representative, the foreigners were surprised and shocked. Because they had already colluded with many foreign Banks in advance, they did not lend money to the insurance company, nor did they exchange the official money for shanxi, trying to keep the canal blocked. It was never thought that the shanxi ticket number of "huitong world" had already been prepared through various channels. They could not find any reason to prevaricate, and had to hand over the mineral rights obediently.
After the establishment of baojin company, the company has drawn up the constitution of the operation of the company and discussed it with the board of directors. During the period from 1907 to 1926 as general manager of the company, he led the company through the most difficult period of its development. It laid a good foundation for the future development of yangquan coal mine group.

This is the earliest modern industry in Shanxi Province and the earliest matchmaking factory in China. Since there is no machine, all by manual operation, and management chaos, official corruption, therefore yield is very small, daily production of only five hundred small cylinder, and the quality is poor, bad to use, to engage with executive orders, hu force each county magistrate of a county to apportion sales, but still can't sell, people prefer to use old flint, fire chain and stupid song light fire. Taiyuan matchmaking factory had been in office for ten years, losing money and failing to make ends meet, and was on the verge of collapse.
Is dying in the taiyuan matches, the canal this up $5000 in 1902 silver dollar to buy out the official matches, renamed the "double match company", the match bureau finally coming back to life and from then on into the booming development stage.

Before and after the establishment of the republic of China, the "double lucky" matches had been sold to shanxi and shaanxi provinces. The two provinces and counties in qinjin county have stores that sell "double lucky" matches. Since then, the residents of the two provinces have finally ended the history of using firestone, fire chains and silly torches, and the sales of "double ford" matches have reached a point where demand exceeds supply.
From canal this up over 1902 taiyuan bureau to create a double blessing matches the company to a "double blessing" in the early 1930 s over forcefully by the shanxi provincial government, this 30 years is the most prosperous period of double f match company development, asset appreciation, rapidly by the original 18000 silver dollar increase to 200000 silver.
