one mile ot Silverton and at an elevation
of abonl 800 f. el above the Lake.   It  lies
on what is known ns  the   Galena   Furni
Flats   und  adjoins  the Ualena Mines
Group,   In the eat ly days ol the district,
a large amount of rich galena float  wus
found    scattered   through   the  surface

property wa.- looked over bv a iiiiniher of
practical experts with a view of locating

Bridgeport, Conn., Aug. 7.—Nearly 40
persona were killed by an accident on the
Stratford extension of the Shelton Street
Hallway Company Sunday, when a lmide 1
trolley car went oil the trestle over Peck's
mill jKind at Oronoque, about six miles
north of Bridgeport and sank in Hie Hats
40 feet below. Thus far lib persons are
known to be dead and several more injured.
Only two persons are known to have escaped unharmed, lt is believed there were
43 passengers on the car, but the indicator
was removed by the conductor of another
ear and spirited away, so that nt present it
is impos*ible to state accurately the number aboard.
The seene of the accident is midway between Shelton and Bridgeport. The car
was northbound running toward Shelton.
lt was in charge of conductor John Carroll of Bridgeport, who was among the
killed, and Mntorman Hamilton of Bridge*
port, who escaped by jumping.
The trestle is 440 feat long, made of iron,
with stone foundations and was not protected by guard rails. South of the trestle
for about 10 feet the trucks left the rails,
then the car contined on the ties about
75 feet, when it went oil* thc trestle and
dropped into thc pond below, overturning
completely and upending.
< rusli.-.l  hy  the  Motor.
When the car struck the four-ton motor
and the heavy trucks crushed into it, instantly killing many of the passengers.
Three physicians who were passengers on
a car a short distance behind, arrived
quickly on the scene and rendered all possible assistance to lhe injured.
Word was sent to Bridgeport nnd three
ambulances and a police wagon were hurried to the scene and the injured were taken to the Bridgeport general hospital. A
morgue was improvised in the main room
of the town hall at Str.ttf r.l, nnd in a very
short time 2.1 b diis were laid out awaiting
President Andrew Randell of the railroad company stated that it was impossible for him to account for the accident.
Immediately after his arrival at the scene
he made a thorough inspection of the
tracks and trestle and could see nothing
wrong, and cars were running over the
trestle as usual soon afterwards. He denied that the ears were run at a high rate
of'.speed, and claimed every possible precaution had been taken to prevent accidents.
One theory advanced is thnt faulty connection was responsible for thc accident,
At the point where lhe cars leave the road
for the trestle it is alleged that the rails
had sunk a little, and though the forward
trucks took the rails all right, thc rear
trucks did not connect and jumped the
track, which caused the forward trucks to
also leave thc iron, lt is believed that if
the proper' guard rails had been placed
alongside the track the car would not have
toppled over.
Karaite,!   hy  .l.i.i.pii.K.
William Kelly of Bridgeport, in company with Miss Kartell, escaped death by
jumping from the enr as it swayed to the
lints below. Soon afterwards the car toppled over. He sustained a severe shock,
but was otherwise uninjured. lie stated
that the cars were not running unusually
fast but the car was swaying considerably
when it struck the trestle and he realized
the danger and knew his only safety was
in jumping.
All the bodies of the Bridgeport dead
and the unidentified were taken to the
morgue at Bridgeport. It has been ascertained that 40 fares were registered and
these, with the young children that did not
have to pay, the motorman and conductor
and an extra niotorniaii, who was being
taught, make the probable number on the
car 47.

Owin_ to a reduction in miners' wapes
caused by the enforcement of the eight
hour law, the miners are all idle and tbe
mines have  shut  down.   Therefore all
worklngmen are hereby warned to keep
away from   the Slocan   and   Kootenay
country, British Columbia, until present
troubles are  amicably  settled   between
mine owners and miners,
Sandon. B. C.      W. L. Hauler,
June  nd. 1890.        Secretary  Bandon

Miners' Union.
It seems an astounding fact, but a
fact it is nevertheless, that a fe** mine
managers have taken it upon themselves to dictate to the .sovereign people
of British Columbia as to whether a
law, enacted by their representatives
in Parliament, should be allowed a
fair trial or not. If these woul d-be
dictators had tried the eight hcur
system, then taken their preset t
stand it would not have looked so bad.
But to £ay "we know all about it ond
will not tjive it a trial," is their policy,
when, as a fact, it ia well known that
some ot these mis-managers of mines
in British Columbia acquired most of
their mining experience On the cricket
fi' Ul and lawn tennis courts of the old
country, and owe their present
positions, not to their knowledge of
mining, but to their pull with the
company's board of directors. When
Buch men as W. A. Clark, James K.
Pardee and R C. Chambers, successful
mine managers with world wide,
reputations and who, speaking from
experience, endorse the eight hour
system, is it not time for some of the
pin heads in this country to cease
making themselves ridiculous on this
subject, and at least give the system a
fair trial.
Easter n stockholders of our various
mines will learn in time no doubt, and
at considerable expense, that a pair of
yellow leggings is not the main
necessity for a mine manager.
The Opposition press haa the
Senilin government in about the same
position that Otis has Aguinaldo.
That is, beaten and bro-*,eti up but
with effrontery enough to bob up the
next day apparently none the worse
for wear.
Du ring tbe last month, about thirty
Silvertonians havo sent in applications
