At 12 o'clock on Tuesday night
Williitm ThinniiM, engineer at,
theJosicslmft house, waseaught
in the machinery and received
such fearful injuries that he
died nt 7:15 lust evening at the
Sister's hospital.
The miners got off shift at
midnight had been hoisted from
the Workings, and Mr. Thomas
had slowed down the machinery
in order to clean it.    While he
was engaged in wiping the shaft
in some way, how, he declared
before he died, he did not know,
he was suddenly throw down so
that his feet were drawn behind
the driver and   between   the
shaft and the bed plate.   The
•lutcli is fastened to  the  shaft
by means of large bolts.   As his
limbs were between the shaft
and the bed plate every time
the driver  revolved   the bolts
tore his flesh, tearing the tissues
out in large chunks.   Thomas
never lost  consciousness, and
said that it seemed to  him as
though a faucet of blood hat!
heen turned on when the iron
bolts were tearing him literally
to   pieces.   The men who hail
not yet gone home hurried to
the assistance of their unfortu
itate comrade, but they could
not extricate him from Itis fearful position until the engine was
stopped.   As they were not acquainted with the operation of
the hoist Thomas, who never
lost, his nerve, told them to call
the blacksmith.   This was done
aud then  Thomas gave directions how to operate the levers,
and how to buck the machinery
so that he could be taken out of
The   ambulance    wus summoned, the wounded man taken
to the Sisters'hospital and Dr.
Kenning called to attend to his
injuries.   An examination disclosed that the right leg had
been fractured at, a point two
inches below the knee.    The
flesh had been literally stripped
from the bone from the front
portion of this limb from the
knee almost te the instep.   The
left leg was badly fractured at
the  knee  and   the   bolts  had
stripped the flesh ubove the knee
in  large sections, so that the
bone wus bare for a considerable
distance.   Dr. Kenning cut off a
piece of flesh and muscle as large
as a hand and did all he could to
•elieve Thomas' sufferings. Had
he lived the leg would have been
amputated, but the  physician
saw that the shock wns so great
tlmt it would have resulted in
immediate death to have performed tho operation while he
was in so weakened a condition.
Thomas said  that  he knew
that he could not live, but accepted    the    inevitable   with
bravery, saying that he might
just as well die now us in twenty
years hence.   Itwas his desire
that William Yolen Williams,
super intendent of tho Granby
mines at Phoenix, be sent for,
as he was his life-long friend.
A short time before ho breathed his last Thomas took a ring
from his finger and gave it to
the Sisters, saying that he wished it to besenttohisold mother,
as a last token of his affection.
steamers as an artificer, rising
tothe rank of certified engineer.
He left the company's service
with excellent recommendations, which with his certificate
from the engineering hoard, he
exhibited occasionally with
great pride. He was a man of
extreme neatness, which habit
was doubtless due to the training which he received while in
the employ of the Allan line.
He likedr to keep his engine as
neat and as bright as they are
kept on board the crack ocean
greyhounds on which he formerly worked. It was this characteristic which led to his death,
as he was engaged in polishing
the shaft of the hoist engine
when he received the injuries
which caused his death.
As he was a master of his
craft, and a very careful and
conscientious man, he was seldom out of employment. He
was of an extremely quiet disposition, steady, sober and reliable. All who knew hiin were
his strong friends, and his death
will be learned of with the deepest regret.

Other plans matured that will

The inability of the 0. P. R.

than it did last week, if it could
have secured ore curs. This
fact taken in conjunction with
the blowing out of a furnace at
Bouudary Falls for want of

It is reported thnt nn important deal has been made for a
group of claims located on the
north fork of Kettle River, the
properties in question being the
well-know Volcanic group,
which is a landmark for miles
around to travellers into the
While details are not given,
it is understood that the deal
is made on the basis of over
$100,000, a cash piiynieut having
been already made, and tin-
other one being now in the
bank ready for turning over.
Late in July a party of eastern mining men arrived in the
Boundary to examine the Volcanic, and the deal is the result
of their investigations. In the
party were D. O. G. Youngquist
ami Dr, Fred llarkin, of Marquette, Michigan, who were
accompanied by Alex P. Mead,
a mining engineer, and it
thorough examination of tho
Volcanic was made. Last week
a diamond drill outfit was sent
up to the Volcanic, and is supposed to be now at that work.
The Volcanic was located
years ago by ll. A. Brown, one
of the hest known prospectors
in the Boundary, who hold the
title to the property up to the
time of the. deal. As he has
been able, Mr. Brown has worked the Volcanic, the greatest
miiount of development being
iu the shape of a long tunnel
which was being driven to
strike the immense ore body at
ilepth. This tunnel has been
driven into the mountain several hundred feet.

trict, it has the vast agricultural and. stock country^ tir' the
west of hore to support it. The
rich garden lands niMhe immediate vicinity of the town
produce all that is necessary for
tho exhibit of vegetables; the
results of the threshing in the
district is sufficient guarantee
of a respectable grain display;
many in this district as well as
in the country west of heto.'are,
and have for years, been ini
proving their herds of cattle;
Oar 24th of May celebrations
demonstrate that horses, Of j a
good class, are very plentiful,
then why with everything in
its favor, and Seeing that Nelson, ftir from being similiarly
siiuated can meet with such
success, cannot Midway hold an
exhibition next fall that would
be a credit to the town and
district? This is' a subject for
every right' minded citinen to
think over carefully.
The citizens of  Nelson, B. C,
are.deserving of no little praise
forthe enterprise displayed in-
holding a fall fair.    Although
Nelson is not nearly so well situated for. the successful carrying out of an   undertaking  of
this kind as many other places
in southern British  Columbia,
it has takeft tho initiative  and
its example Avill doubtless   b6
followed by many other towns
in this part of the interior.   To
say that Nelson  is  not overly
favored    for    conducting   an
agricultural exhibition is but to
increase  the  praise   given its
citizens for  their  energy displayed.   Nelson   is  more   dependent  upon its   mineral re-
sorces than upon   the  benefits
received from agriculture, and
for this reason alone it may lie
clearly seen  that- the    undertaking was no little task.   To
run   a successful agricultural
fair in an eastern town, or city,
even in thu centre of a farming
community  requires   considerable-attention   and is attended
by no sm.dl amount of work, so
that it  can readily be   understood that the directors of  the
Nelson   exhibition,   no   doubt
many of whom   wore   inexperienced, must have worked unceasingly to lutve brought the
exhibition up to the high stand
ard it attained.    But in spite
of the many difficulties encount
ered in carrying out tho work,
the Nelson fair was  a success
and with the experienced gained this year, that  city  will  be
able   to  next  year  excel  the
fair held  last  week.   Now,   if
Nelson, situai'ad in practically a
mining district, can so successfully carry out an undertaking
of this kind, why cannot some
of the   towns  in   our district
follow its example?   Several-of
the  towps    in   the Boundary
have   exceptional   advantage:
for holding a fall  exhibition;
Midway in particular, is favored
in this respect.     Besides being
situated in an agricultural dis-
McMUlan Interviewed.
A. J. McMillian, of . London,.
England, managing -director of
tiie Le Roi Mining company apd
ii. the Snowshoe Gold & Copper
Mines, arrived in Rossland on
1 hhrsday night. Mr. McMillian
was accompaiued;.from|)ngland
by G. S. Waterlow, who is also
a director of- these companies',
but unfortunately Mr. Water-
low has been very |fti well since
leaving ijfhgland and has gone
on tothe coasts forttjAJ few days
to recuperate. He is" expected
to reach Rossland about the
end of next week.
Interviewed by a representative of The Miner yesterday,
Mr. McMillian said that, he had
nothing of special interest to
tell regarding Le Roi matters'.
He and Mr. Waterlow, will tab
the opportunity of discussing
matters fully with the general
manager, Mr. Parish. '
Asked a» to the feeling ic
London with reference to B. C.
Mr. McMillan said fchht no great
interest was noticeable, and tlie
market ih fi. C.'securities is fhtt
and is a liniited one,'!T|ii!) is'
also true as regards Australian
and Africatr'seciirites. The public takes at present but little
interest i.n thesg mutters, but. it
is believed that before long
there will be a revival of interest.' ' ""■' '•'■■■■■ '   '    ' -•
In connection with B, jQ. min
ing everything.'possible is being
done to reduce the cost., of milling and smelting, and these
efiorts are meeting with success,
thus making it possible to deal
with ore of a grade not considered of commercial value in
the past. The best evidence of
this is that a number of new
properties jure now being opened up, not only in the Rossland
district, but iu. the Boundary
and other; parts pf the interior.
With reference to, the Snow-
shoe mine Mr. McMillan said
that he intended spending some
time there with Mr. Waterlow.
The tonnage of ore there is very
large, and shipments have been
on a greatly extended scale this
year. The Boundary district is
turning out . an enormous
amount of ore and the conditions of mining and smelting
there are very favorable.
Mr. McMillan and Mr. Water-
low expect to. be in Rossland
and the district > for several
weeks, and will probably leave
for England,tpwards the end of
the month. — Rossland Miner.

The Piece in Danger.
No painter of military sub
jects ever excelled Alphonse de
Neuville in the depiction of
spirited action* or introduced
greater dramatic interest into
his pictures. "The Piece in
Danger" is a most striking example. It is a picture wlitoh
communicates to the spectator
the artist's enthusiasm and the
emotions which he felt in painting it.
A picture can actually represent only a single instant of time
but de Neuville gives iii this battle picture  a  situation   which
tylla   dearly what action has
led up to it and give*.a suggestion of the action about to take
place, but still leaves the observer in doubt as to the final result, thus making it a mine of
intet'estinj;    conjecture.      The
artist's object, not only in this
but in a large part of the pictures
which lie painted in the Franco-
Prussian war, was to show tho
vim, valor and fighting qualities
of his fellow  countrymen  and
this could ba  best shown by
representing action in progress.
Alphonse  de  Neuville    was
born at St. Omer, Pas-de-Calais,
in 1835, ami died inParisinl885,
in  the   height of  his  career.
Unquestumalily    he   was   tho
greatest military painter of the
last century ar.d his. paintings
have been  popular  in almost
every  civilized  country.     His
work is  almost  as much  esteemed ii? England or America
as in France and  some  of his
most    important   works   are
owned in Australia.
"The Piece iii Danger," one
of the best, examples of de Neu-
villo's bi'iish, is one of tho
monthly pictures which the
Free Press, Winnipeg, have selected to be presented to the
readers of tlie Weekly Free
Press. Wo understand the
picture selected for distribution
in September is very handsome,
