One of the most horrible accident)* in the history of the C.
P. H. in the Boundary occurred
Tuesday morning directly iu
the I'hoenix (twitching yards,
the victim, a railway employee,
having his head instantly severed from his body.
reported from the B. C. Copper'    ^^J* ™ ^T

Wl'.lmake a Substantial Add!
tion to the Reserves of Ore
Available for Shipment
to The Smelter.
An important, development is
Co.'s Mother Lode mine. About
IS months ago a commencement was made to drive a main
tunnel into the hill in which
occurs the big body of copper
nix hill at 9.30, with conductor
Ed. Stirling   in   charge.   The
calioose was on the forward end
and F. E.   Donohoe,  a brake-
... ....       , mun, stood on the lower step of
ore already proved to hvedown ^^ ^ „, ^^   up    ^
grade.    In     some   unknown
to u depth of between 500 and
rfeet below the outcrop on
top of the hill, and still strong
underfoot in the lowest level of
the mine. This tunnel was intended to pass under the big
quarries opened in ore at the
surface and well up the side of
the hill. After connection was
made by means of a large
chute or raise with No. 1 quarry, which for some time supplied
most of the ore sent down to
the company's smelter, the tunnel, known as the tramway tunnel, was driven further into the
hill, making connection with
other ore quarries as sufficient
distance was gained to admit of
this lieing done with advantage.
For a long distance the tunnel
WlUt in »•'«.  -hut   ttvnntuttlly    It
pushed into barren rock* in
which it was continued until
the geological conditions made
it apparent that, assuming they
were similar here to what they
were at the surface, one shoot
of ore lay to the westward. A
crosscut proved that it did,
this entering a big body of ore
similar in character to that opened in one of the quarries
above aud in the underground
levels below. Another theory
now presents itself. On the
surface No. 5 quarry had shown
the occurrence of a shoot of ore
of an average grade higher than
met with in the other quarries,
running higher in both copper
iintl sulphur, the latter being
nu important consideration for
smelting purposes. This ore
was separated from that exposed in No. 4 quarry by a hig
hone of limerock and a porphyry dike. The main tunnel
having entered lime it wns assumed the porphyry would lie
met with later and then ore of
like grade to thut occurring in
No. 4 quarry. Recently this
assumption was proved to be a
correct one, for after leaving
the lime and porphyry the tunnel has already passed through
about 25 feet of good ore, whicli
still Illls the face of the heading.
As No. 5 quarry is 200 feet
above, the recent development
appeal's to show that the ore
continues from the quarry down
to the tunnel. Whether it does
or not can only be proved by
raising and sinking to connect
these two workings, but the experience gained in making connections lietween the tunnel and
the other quarries suggests that
here too it will lm found that,
there is little or no barren rock
cutting out the ore and that
eonsepuently a substantial addition has heen made to the reserves of ore available for shipment to the smelter.
manner Donohoe evidently
slipped and fell under the
wheels of the caboose and five
cars passed over him cutting
his head and one limb off clean.
No one saw the fatality uud consequently «x ictly how it occurred will never be known.
Donohoe had been employed
on theore trains from the Granby mines to the Granby smelter
for some six weeks coming there
from the states. He was un
Irishman, about 42 years of age,
und us fur us known wus u
single man. The remains of
the victim were taken to the
undertaker's in Phoenix and
Dr. G. M. Foster, the district
coroner, was notified.

Mr. W. K. Vunderbilt and
Mrs. Anna D. Rutherford, member of the American nobility,
were recently married in London.
Jay P. Graves Interviewed.
"It is the impression in mining circles in the east that the
copper market will continue
stiff'during the summer,' said
Jay P. Graves of the Granby
mines, in the Boundary country,
who has just returned from an
eastern trip, says the Spokesman Review
"At present there is 11 good
demand for the metal," he continued, "and the indications are
that the demand will continue.
The price will probably remain
at about 15 cents.
"The Granby smelter is still
bothered by the lack of coke.
The smelter has resumed operations, but it can not secure the
quantity of coke it requires It
has obtained practically all the
surplus on the coast. If operations had not bean so greatly
reduced on account of the coke
situation the company would
have posted a dividend by this
time. Notwithstanding this
the company expects to pay n
dividend early in  the summer.
"Two additional fur iae.<w are
now being constructed at tho
smelter and when they are completed the total capacity of the
six furnaces will be 2400 tons.
"While I was in Boston the
Granby stock was placed on tho
market,"
Report* from Boston say that
thc price is from $4.75 to $6.26 u
share.

The Australian Drought.
Many Farmers from Antipodes
Likely to visit British Columbia.
The following letter hns been
received by Mr. Jas. Anderson,
Deputy Minister of Agriculture!
Dbah Silt,—lust a line to let
you know how we got on with
the spraying this* year, All over
the state tliere are good crops
of apples and pears. No doubt
the trees having a Rpell lust
year benofited greatly and were
able to curry a good crop this
year.
My crop of fruit has turned
out very good indeed, and I. am
very busy at present sending
it away. The mixture that
turned out best was Bordeaux
(0-4-50) with the addition of 2J
lbs. of soda ash. Tho next was
Bordeaux with the addition of
2 lbs. of salt (6-4-2-50). The
great objection I have to the
latter mixture is that it burns
the hands, The former lias no
effect, on the hands, and is not
difficult to wash out. Both
mixtures stuck on the tree well
in spite of the ruin.
I sprayed when the trees wero
in full bloom. Tlie spray seemed to have very little cil'oet on
the blossoms. At) growers now
recognize that the proper time
to spray is when the trees are
in bloom and intend alter this
to do away with the winter
spraying. Tliere is not u great
deal cf news to tell this time,
only that things generally are
in 11 very iiua wny rium tH« <_T.
feet of drough and bad government. Large numbersof people
are leaving Australia for other
parts, where there are better
chunces. With food so dear
and lack of work, 1 don't, know
what the people will do this
winter. Every thing seems to
be goiug down the hill—-rather
bad for a young country.
Tho eiU'cts of the drought
hnve been terrible. For mouths
the railway was running cattle
trains bringing stock from the
north to Gippsluud*. so as to
keep them alive until the rain
came. We hud a little ruin iu
the North but not sufficient to
let the fanners commence plowing. The grass sprang a little,
but was withered up the following week. Queensland i.i tho
only place where there has Ik en
good rains, ihey have been
able to take the stock back t.n
the cattle stations again. All
the fanners iu the Wallace
(northwest of Victoria) had to
leave their t'urins and come
south—for the want of water
and feed for their stock, 'ihey
used up all their stick wheat
and have no money—so now
the government is going to advance them seed wheat so ihey
can sow for coming season.
wheat is now worth (is. a bushel,
It must he very hard for the
farmers to sec everything go
after years of hard work. They
are no better off now than when
they started after 10 years of
hard work. When the report
appeared in the daily papers of
the abundant harvest ill Canada, I am afraid a groat many
wished they had settled there
instead of here, and I think
they would have done much
better.
Some twelve months ago a
gentleman from Colac left for a
trip round the world. Ho got
as far as B. C. and was so taken
with the country that he spent
about two months there. Then
returned and sold his property
here and has now settled iu
Kelowna. I think it is a fruitgrowing district by the bobks

CANADIAN TRADE.
Sir Richard Cartwright, in reply to R. L. Borden's speech ou
the budget, pointed out that
while the trade of the United
States had increased 48 per cent.
from 1890 to 1002, that of Caiia
da had increased 98 par ceib.
in the same period. , My. Borden's argument was that Canadian trade was prosperous on
account of world-wide prosperity, and that Hie LIhuni,!
party's policy had nothing to do
with it. Sir Richard showed
that no other country's trade
had increased in like proportion to that of Canada, and
that, therefore, the governnient
could fairly claim that they had
confci'il'uted something to thin
prosperity, unexampled in the
history of the nations.
ARE RUNNING AFFAIRS.
In the course of the debate on
the bill io runty canceimtioii of
the grant of lands in southeast
Kootenay to the C. P. R., Hon.
Mr. Wells, Chief Commissioner
of lands and works, stated he
was a friend of Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, but he did not ftt
any time forget or overlook
his responsibility as a Minister,
of the crown.
We more than suspect that
Mr. Wells and other men of like
stamp, while (hey do not forget
themselves or the Crown perhaps very often forget that they
are trustrees of tho people. If
some of our so-called represent:
atives had more enlightened
ideas about responsible government and their proper functions
in office, they might not be so
free with their reserves and
grants of tho public domain.
The Crown and Mr. Wells
and Sir Thomas Shanghnessy
and the C. P. R. should not cut
as big a figure ns thoy do in our
affairs. Hut after all said and
(lone what can we expect from
such a source?
TIIE BARB COLONY.
The landing of the Burr colony
in Canada marks an epoch in
our history, lt has opened the
eyes of Canadians to tho wist
possibilities of the Wost, if that
great country is peopled by
desirable races. The class of immigrants coining from the British Isles are of our own flesh
and blood. They are able to appreciate the advantages of good
government, good education,
and good morals. Through
thoir influence Canada can beeoine it nation whoso worth to
tho empire cannot bo overesti
mated, With tho fame of the
great grain producing belt on
the lips of all civilized peoples,
wo can afford to rest on our
ours and choose tho material
wo desire for settlors. Unfortunately tho government does
not take this view of the ense,
and with tho high class settlers
of the British Isles are coming
impoverished peoples of foreign
lands, who have nothing in common with Canadians,   Many of
these immigrants are secured
at great cos';, and, tinfitted for
suburban life, they overcrow
our cities and demoralize our
s.T'iefy. , The Nestorians, a sect
discovered in Russia, will shortly join tho" Doukobors with

agriculture to assist her footsteps along the broad road of
national prosperity. She 'has
everything necessary to raise
her to industrial eminence. The
United States has but one possible rival in the race for commercial and industrial predominance, and this one will not
long remain a rival unless she
gathers up her resources and
concentrates her energies, transforming a central pojver ahd a
group of colonics into a compact and aggressive world power with a common aim and a
common ambition. ,It is a,jde-
ploruble fact that little is being
done to wold the em pi no -ami

in Great Britain in regard to

on tlie rights, priviledgea or

the movement might have the
effect of postponing for an indefinite period even the begin

seems to be that tho tree planted however soon will not begin
to bring forth fruit of any consequence for senio time. In

faith in that future has resulted
in orders which aro keeping
storekeepers busy and factories
running night and day. An
American expert has expressed
his conviction that the wheat
Oelt of Canada is the greatest
and the most fertile in the
world, that it dwarfs the good
lands of his Own country into
significance, that in the course
of tittie, and not a very long
time, it will be filled with fifty
or sixty millions of people.
Why therefore, should Canadians be particularly anxious for
consolidation? They have more
thuii agricultural land. They
have abundance of everything
else that is commonly supposed
tobe necessary for the, building up ofa great nation.' Thoy
have coal,' iron ore, minerals of,

Fhank. Alta., April 20,-The
little town at this point, situute
at the foothills on the eastern
slope of the Hocky mountains
was overwhelmed with disaster about li'.M) this morning.
What was apparently a volcanic eruption on tlie top of Turtle
inountain, overlooking the
iwn, scattered an immense
quantity of rock and debris over
the town, stopping up the mine,
imprisoning tho miners, crushing a number of houses and
killing many people.
The entire top of Turtle
inountain was scattered over
the sleeping village of Frank,
Immense pieces of rock were
thrown high in tbo air, and descending crushed in the roofs of
the houses and stopped up the
mouth of tbe Frank coal mine.
Most nf the buildings in tbe
town were destroyed, nnd many
of the houses were crushed like |
eggshells and their inhabitants
immediately killed. The earth
was opened up by a gigantic
fissure three-quarters of a mile
long. The Old Man's river,
whicli runs tlirough tbe town,
was completely dammed up,
and the railroad track was
rendered impassable for a distance of two miles
1:40 p. in.—Masses of rock and
lava nre still being thrown from
Turtle mountain. The number
of known dead is now placed
at 112. Of these 18 men are
imprisoned in the mine 12 miners working outside the mine
were killed by flying debris,
and 82 men, women and children were crushed to death by
flying rock as they lay asleep in!
their beds.
A list of those killed is not
yet obtainable. Ahout (K) of
the dead are said to be women
and children. The survivors
are in a state of panic, and are
preparing for flight, anticipating a big eruption to-night.
The mountain continues to discharge stones and lava at intervals, but tliere has been no
repetition of the original disaster, when immense rocks,
weighing many tons, wore hurled down on tho sleeping town.
An appeal has been made to
the government, and mounted
poliee are bein& hurried to the
unfortunate village. Aid is also being sent from neighboring
towns, but owing to the  inter-
through the night and it is
hoped that the water will he
flowing through the new channel by morning.
Most of the men imprisoned
in tlie mine, whose death at
first seemed certain, got out
alive this afternoon, There
were 17 men in tbe mine. Two
died from suffocation, but tbe
other 15 worked tbeir way out.
The rescuing party nliove
ground despnired of snving the
entombed miners, for the entrance was blocked by immense
piles of rock, The turners within, however, found an exit
Where there was less rock, and
after cutting their way through
IjK) feet of debris all but two
emerged from tlie mine uninjured. One of the imprisoned
men who so miraculously escaped death went home after
emerging front the mine and
found his house destroyed and
iiis wife and six cliildred dead.
There is now plenty of air iu
the mine, and the inside work
ings are intact.
Vancouver, April 2!).—At
o'clock to-night a special from
Frank says that it is estimated
the total number of dead is 95.
The latest theory this evening
of the cause of the disaster is
that it was due to n rock slide
which carried the top of Turtle inountain down on the village below. It is now thought
that what was supposed to be
the. smoke of the volcano was
dust, and that the contlnuetl
fall of small bits of rock during
the day was merely the aftermath of the original rock slide.
The repetition of the calamity is
now considered unlikely.

A Striking Military Picture.
"The Vidette," hy Meissonier,
is a picture which appeals to the
mind rather than charms the
senses. The marvellous precision and completeness in the
drawing and painting of the
figure of the French dragoon
and his mount at the period of
Napoleon are little less than
astonishing. It depends in no
way upon sentiment, but by the
simple force of its descriptive
realism itcommands admiration.
As a rule Meissonier never
allowed a picture to leave his
studio until every inch of it has
been finished to a point not
even attempted by tlie artists
of to-day.
Four hundred and twenty-six
pictures represent Meissonier's
life work and their estimated
value is more than $10,000.00.
Of this Meissonier received
about one-tenth. Some of his
paintings have been sold for
prices equivalent to the amount
of $20 gold pieces sufficient to
cover them nearly twenty times
over. For his famoes "1814" or
"Thc Retreat from Russia" ho
received 300,000 francs and later
it sold at auction for 850,000
francs.
"The Vidette" is the picture
which the Free Prei*s, Winnipeg,
selected to be presented to
Weekly Freo Press readers in
April.
