Charles Rose Knocked Over at the
Black Bear Mine This
Morning.
About noon today Charles Rose,
employed on the circular saw at
the Black Bear shops of the Le Roi
company, had a narrow from being
killed. The block on the sawing
table suddenly gave way, striking
Rose just above the right eye, making a severe wound and rendering
Rose unconscious.
When he recovered his senses
Rose was convoyed to his home and
Br. Kenning was sent for, The
doctor put in six Btitchos and
drcs?cd the wound and Rose will
be out again in a day or so.
Tho men say that when the block
gives way as it did this morning it
is liable to kill anyone it hits and
Rose had a close shave for it.

Hon John H. Turner, provincial
finance minister who will shortly go
to England as agent general for B.
C., had a lengthy conference with
the council of the Rossland Board
of Trade this morning.
The well known views of the
board upon the usefulness and importance of the London office were
laid before Mr. Turner and he
stated what he hoped to accomplish
with the support of the Province.
Mr. Turner said he desired to
have good offices and plenty of
room to make a display of ore
specimens, etc., but rent and otter
expenses were very high in London
and the sum voted by the legislature to maintain the office was
comparatively small. However, he
would make the best arrangments
possible.
He desired, he said, to have all
British Columbia papers keptjon file
for ready reference, open to all enquiring callers, aud in order to
keep himself well posted concerning affairs transpiring in the Province.
Mr. Turner stated that he hoped
to return each season to B. C. and
to visit every year, the chief centers
in the Province, as it was only in
this way, that he could keep in
touch wilh the rapid advance that
was going on in every section here.
In the afternoon Mr. Turner, accompanied by J. B, Johnson, president of the Board of Trade, and
some others, visited the principal
mines on Red Mountain.
Prom Rossland Mr. Turner will
proceed to the Boundary country
and he will return to Victoria before leaving for Loudon.
by the provincial legislature at the
session just closed. Rossland in
future will have a sittings of the
supreme court here where jury
cases can be disposed *of,four times
a year making a very excellent
service indeed.
His Lordship pointed ont that in
Manitoba aud Ontario, outside of
Toronto, jury trials could lie had
only twice a year and he thought
that under the now conditions obtained by the judges, British Columbia was well in advance of the
whole Dominion"in such matters.
The trouble previously had been
caused by the too frequent sittiugs
of the full court a Victoria and
Vancouver not less than ten sittings a year having been the practice. This was found to unduly
interfere with the judges' duties in
hearing aud disposing of actions
ready for trial, hence a change was
made, which he was sure would be
greatly appreciated by litigants aud
the public generally.

"•"■l        The Traveling Library.
The movement now on foot to
establish a library in Rossland is
meeting with encouraging success.
All that is needed is the hearty cooperation of the citizens. The purpose is to place 2000 volumes of
very choice literature, and the b isl,
collection of historical and biographical works either in public or
private libraries. The wjrks will
also include a wide range of learning, art, science, travel and fiction.
If 200 signatures are obtained, 4000
volumes will be furnished. Members aro entitled to the use of all
these volumes for the space of five
years for the sum of $5 for membership, and 25 cents every quarter
for dues. The total cost to each
subscribing member for the entire
period is 811.75.
NORTHPORT
SITUATION
No
Change at the Smelter—Ore
Shipments Are Going Out
as Usual.
There is no change in the North-
port smelter lockout and strike
situation today. No work is being
done at the smelter, but the ore
shipments continue to come down
from Rossland as usual.
It is understood that Messrs.
Clute, Smith Curtis and Chris
Foley would be willing to act as
arbitrators in the matter in very
much the same manner as they did
in Rossland a little over a year
ago.
The smelter being in the United
States and not in Canada, the
gentlemen feel a double difficulty
in acting. Thev of. course, will
take no action whatever unless a
joint request for' arbitration is
made.
Mayor Lalonde has taken the
matter up aud is doing what he can
to bring about a meeting—so far
without success.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Typographical union is again
at war with the New York Sun.
Sometime ago the business men of
New York intervened iu the dispute, and tho war was declared off
in hope of an agreement being arrived at. Manager La flan, thereupon
left for Europe, returning six weeks
later declined to arbitrate tho difference, hence the renewal of the
strike tactics.
There is one phrase of the North-
port trouble which should not be
overlooked in all fairness to the
smelter management.
It has been alleged that a deliberate attempt has been made by some
of the employes at the smelter to
introduce what is described as
"The Butte Method" of "disciplining" managers, foremen, or
any employe against whom the
men may have a grudge. It is
further alleged that matters of the
sort referred to at Butte reached
such a stage that the smelter management there were quite unable to
exercise any control of their own
works and that practically a reign
of terror and physical force existed,
and this alleged state of things in
Butte has been put forward as an
excuse for tbe action recently taken
by the Northport smelter management.
The president of the Mill and
Smeltermen's Union gives a most
emphatic denial to the assertion
that a reign of violence was to be
inaugurated or that violence was
even thought of, and every one
who knows Mr. Shed personally
will at once agree that great weight
is to be credited to his statements,
it being admitted on all sides that
he is a level headed man whose
moral standing is above suspicion.
If the smelter management can
justify their recent action in any
way, there should be ample opportunity offered theinJJ to do it,
the union are more than willing
that this should be the case aud it
speaks well for the strength of the
union's position that they take such
a stand and court investigation.
Public opinion in Canada will
not support resort to violence under
any circumstances, and although
Northport is over the line, it
is so close to it, and the management being controlled entirely from
this side, that it is to Canadian
public opinion, the contending parties must appeal.
To make such a charge against
the men and not prove it up to the
hilt, is simply au unfair way of
thrusting an unpleasant issue upon
the union.
As was pointed out yesterday, it
was the clear duty ol the management to first call the men together
and insist that the foreman should
not be interferred with or otherwise action would be taken, and as
this was admittedly never done, it
seems a latal omission in the company's statement of the case as now
presented.
Speaking on the proposed nine-
hour day which the 1 uternational association of Machinists are now try-
iug to inaugurate, President O'Con-
ue.il said last week: "It means a great
deal to the machinists," ho said.
"Take 150,000 machinists employed iu the United States and reduce
tho hours of labor from ten to nine
and it makes 150,000 hours less
work; 150,000 hours that might be
used for intellectual development.
It means 15,1)00 10 hour days for
somebody else to word, and it
means 16,666 9-hour days."

LEAD BONUS,
Mr. G. O. Buchanan of Kalso is
one of the best informed men in
the Kootenays on the lead question, and he was the hardest worker
iu the recent successful movement
to petition the Dominion government for a bonus. In the last issue
of his paper, the Kalso Kootenaian
Mr. Buchanan says:
"The bonus on refined lead has
been granted, not, it is true on the
exact terms that were asked, but
in a sufficiently generous manner
to tempt capitalists to erect a refinery in Canada. That was the
end sought and it is all that was
necessary. The limit of 8100,000
a year means that at least for the
first four years the limit will be
reached, aud during thc fifth year,
when but one dollar per ton is allowed, the bounty should amount
to #50,000, which makes a total the
government will be called upon to
bear, of  #450,000   in five years.
Why not patronize a home in
dutsry? It will assist Union labor
aud keep the money at home. Ask
for a Crown Grant or W. B. Cigar
when you buy.

Montreal next month for the election of officers.
The four companies thus consolidated are the Old Ironsides Mining
Co., the Knob HiU Gold Mining
Co., the Grey Eagle Gold Mining
Co., and the Granby Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co., Ltd.
All but the Old Ironsides company
are British Columbia corporations,
that having been organized in the
State of Washington. It is worthy
ot note that of the many shareholders in the four old companies, there
was not u single dissenting vote
when the proposition to consolidate the several corporations was
formally laid before them and its
Objects explained.
The chief work done thus far
has been by thu Granby, Knob
Hill and Old Ironsides companies,
the Grey Kagta corporation having
been organized ouly about 18
months ago.
What the Company Owns.
In additiou to the smelter, water
power and realty owned at Grand
Forks and Phoenix, tho new companies come into possession of the following ten crown granted claims in
Phoenix camp, Old Ironsides, Vic-
toria.Fourth of July,Aetna,Phoenix,
Knob Hill, Grey Eagle, Banner,
Tip Top and Triangle. Tue
properties are all in one huge
block, adjoiniug each other, and
are worked with power from two
Id-drill Rand duplex air compressors. Tenders are now being received for an additional 10-drill
compressor, to be installed some
time this year, and to be lined in
connection with a new five-compartment shaft. More work has
been done on these properties than
on any other group of mines iu the
Boundary, and up to date, since
last August, over 150,000 tons of
ore has been shipped-

Among the flattering testimonioJs
;u'iuted by the Miner referring to
the refreshing changes inaugurated
on that paper by "the new management" the following was unaccountably overlooked:
"They speak well of tho Miner,
"The Busy B's"—Barren and
Barney.
The morning you published that
magnificent editorial under the
caption of "The wright man in the
wright place," our junior partner
noticed a marked improvement in
your organ. Y-11 also started off
on thorightfool wln-ii yon published
that brain-racker," Wau ted a man."
But your "Plea for (a)peace" under the Union Label in your issue
of Sunday is certainly 11 solid column of peaches. Nothing more
can be done to  improve the paper,
P.S Willie Thompson is writing another leader for your paper
on The Smelting Question, "How
I Found and Left it," In this
article Willie also wilt take a crack
at Governor Mackintosh, as Rossland would now be a quiet place
were it not for the governor, any
old timer will tell you that."

Last night at the city hall, Cor-
ouer Roddick and a jury commenced an investigation into the
cause of Gillan's death, the man
who was fatally injured in tho
Nickel Plat- shaft yesterday.
The men who were working
with the deceased at the 800 foot
lovel of the mino. the mine foreman and Dr. Kenning gave their
evidence and an adjournment was
taken for the purpose of visiting
the scene of the accident today.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the coroner and the jury went down tho
Nickel Plato shaft to the 800 loot
levol and viewed the spot where
the accident happened. The enquiry will be resumed this ovoning.
The evidence so far is fragmentary
and incomplete, and the mine foreman and hoisting engineer will
probably be recalled  this evening.

The work upon the Mulligan and
Gold Queen, situated on Jubilee
mountain at Ymir, is progressing
favorably, with five men at work upon the properties. The work upon
the Mulligan consists of starting a
tunnel upon the ledge. After
blasting about three feet, solid ore
of shipping grade was struck.
The width of the ledge is about
one foot, the rest of the five feet
being good mineralized quartz.
The tunnel upon the Gold Queen is
now in about 16 feet, the whole
face being good mineralized quartz.
This tunnel is being driven for the
shaft, which is a distance away of
about 150 feet. The shaft is down
45 feet with lour feet of good ore
in the bottom. The ledge is opened
up for a distance of 2,500 feet with
open cuts, shafts and tunnel, and
carries very _ood values. The
amount of work done . upon the
properties is about $2,500 and they
are the best developed prospects
upon Porcupine creek, and they
are both owned by Rossland parties.
There is a good deal of work being dene ou the Iona Fraction
which adjoins the Gold Queer..
Messrs. Price and Burgess of Ymir
have sunk through 25 feet of good
ore and now have commenced to
sink another shaft further up the
mountain. Where they are sinking at present is all in good ore of
a concentrating grade, running
about ten to one.
The Canada Lily, on Jubilee
Mountain, has been bonded by a
Montreal company, who will commence to develop the same about
the first of next month. The bond
was for part cash aud part stock,
the cash payment being $10,000.
This property adjoins the other
claims mentioned.

Arrah boys! Let me introduce Trooper
O'Flaheity,
An object of pity, if not quite of charity;
I'm suffering now from too much "popularity,"
Lately returned from the African war.
Where, iu storming of kopje, and marh-
ing the veldt,
I've never endured hulf the pain that
I've felt,
Listening to speeches, from 'parrots in
breechers,'
And drinking of. beer and bad whiskey
galore.
For the last dozen years, sure, I've been
quite a rangerin,
I.111 Is lhat gave sport, with a trifle of
danger in.
When the drill sergeant told me he'd
take a poor stranger'in
What woulit I do but enlist for the war?
And now I'm r. turned alter seeing the
fun,
You'd think I was Roberts and Bullerin
one.
Called'hero,'  and'veteran,'Gosh! but
that's better than   anything 1  heard
of before.
I give you my   word that I'd sooner be
back again,
FightingOom Paul, and the while rebel
pack again,
Chasing UeWet  round the   old  beaten
track again,
Rather than face a 'reception' once more
I'm shouldered and carried, I'm hugged
and I'm kissed,
My arms are both aching  from shoulder
to wrist,
Each   minute a  mottle, is  held  to my
throttle.
Fail hi I'm in  more danger than ever
before.
The girls are to blame, for they first
started huge in' rne,
Says I—"sure, the darlin'sare only hum-
buggin' me,",.  -
Till at last one or two ol tbem started in
huggin' me.
I folded my arms and resisted no more
Then the boys came along with two poles
and a chair,
And hoisted me six or eight feet in the
air.
Up struck the band and drums, conquering hero comes,
Faith I I never felt such a ninny  before
They started tbe march, and they
danced and they yelled with me,
Hustled and bustled, they tripped, and
fell with me,
Till at last they arrived at the Royal
hotel wilh me,
More than half-dead with excitement
and fear.
They were loyal to 'Bjbs' and hie warning severe,
"Prey when they're returning, don't fllll
them with beer,"

Sense enough left just  to swallow  and
cheer,
Then they staited to tell me how pleasad
they all felt with me,
They 'lought  for  the  flag'  and  they
'marched o'er th: ve'dt' wi h me,
I was wishing I had my old   cli ilcru bel-
with me,
Faith, it gave me a p.iin in  the Btomach
severe
Then they rounded it off with the usual
'gag.'
"I'd risked my  young life   for the old
British flag."
Eiclt time they applauded, most   everyone ordered
In deep huskv voi-.es "Lesh-heshumore
beer."
Their a'tempts at a chorus and antics so
pitiful.
Sure, I couldn't describe  if  I   wrote  a
whole ditty-full.
Of the whole'shooting match'  yiu  cat.
bet I was pretty-full,
Game away so in, or I wouldu't bo heie
And.il ever they   want to 'receive'  ine
again,
I just want to tell'etn, aud tell'em quite
plain.
I don't mind their torches, processions,
watches
Butdon't like their mixture of 'glory and
beor.'
For the love of strong drinks is the curse
of our nation, boys
'Bacchus and Mars' is a  poir  combination, boys
If tho order should   come "Every man
to his station," boys
What are we worth if we're sodden with
beer?
'Litt'e   Bobs'  knew  that   Britain   will
need her sons,
Manning her fortresses,  ships und   li r
guns,
Each heart should  be  re.idv, each   eye
and hand steady
Faith I  Devil a hand ever 'steadied'   on
beor.
(ast a word to conclude— though it  may
peem a trifle, boys
I've a protest to make, which  I   find I
can't stifle, boys
When your hero returns with his sword
and his rifle, boys
Don't brutaliza him   wilb  whiskey and
beer.
And as for the ensign that's  dyed  with
the blood
Of gal ant defenders, by   field   and   by
Hood
Honourour  country's ll.ig' cherish the
dear old rag,'
Don't drag its bullet torn folds through
the bier! FF
