FATAL ACCIDENT
PREMIER MINE
One Man Killed, and Four
Injured in Terrific Explosion on Number Two
Level���Coroner's Inquiry
At 2:15 o'clock, Sunday morning last, a terrific explosion occurred in the temporary magazine, which contained eight cases
of powder, on number two level
at the Premier mine, killing instantly Carl Booy, an Austrian,
employed in the mine as a tram-
me-, and injuring four others,

Paripovich and G.  F. Thomas,
deceased, but thought nothing of
it. About six minutes later, Cox
stoted. he was at No. 6 chute assisting with the loading, when a
shock was felt which extinguished the lamps. Within a
few moments it was reported to
him that the temporary magazine had blown np. Thinking
that this might have caused an
obstruction and blocked the air,
he and the men with him went
up to No. 1 level, and around to
the entrance of No. 2. On reaching the room, off the tunnel,
that had contained the powder,
it was found that Booy, instead
of loading the car in accordance
with instruction, had not even
opened the chute, but had instead run his car down the track
almost to the magazine.
After again closely examining
the evact spot of the explosion,

BRITISH CAPITAL
FOR BEAR RIVER
Old Country Syndicate Reported to Have Acquired
Mining Property on Bear.
Nothing Known Locally
The following item was reported from Vancouver recently,
and appeared in the press from
the south:
A property on the Bear
river, near Stewart, has been
acquired by an English syndicate, which is negotiating
for more properties. The
company will put British
capital into the Stewart
mining areas.
Inquiry locally has failed to
disclose any such deal having
been made, though it is quite
possible that the report is correct, for at this time of the year
a number of claim owners are in
the south and east trying to get
capital with which to develop
their ground.
Independence Ore
Owney McFadden who, with
Allan Carolan, has a contract to
extend a tunnel on the Independence group, Bear river, arrived in Stewart last week, and
brought with him some nice looking ore taken from the drive
which he is making. The ore is

pioneer prospector of British
Columbia, died at Vancouver last
week at age oj 84. One of the
last survivors of those hardy

BOOSTING THE NORTH
The special news letters, by
Francis H. Mason, of Victoria,
appearing weekly in the Mining
Truth, Spokane, is doing a great
deal to attract capital to the
mineral resources of Northern
British Columbia.
LOOKS GOOD
Mining at the Esperanza, Alice
Arm, is still proceeding steadily.
Work is now being concentrated
in the Baldy tunnel and satisfactory results are being obtained. Second grade ore is at
present being mined, and the
high grade is being broken into,
and as much of this will be
mined in the fulure as possible,
it bein the intention of the management to concentrate the
work on the high grade veins.
The  Portland  canal   mineral
zone never looked brighter.
