action of Herman Braskey prevented

Victim and averted what might have
been another aad drowning accident.
Tuesday morning as the es. Slocan waa

harbor Herman Biaskey, one of the
deck hands, who waa pulling a line
across the barge Ml overboard. He
rose directly in (ront of the barge and
attempted to swim out of the way, but
seeing that he could not keep ahead he
dove to avoid being run down.
Meanwhile en tlie steamer the cry of
'man overboard" was heard and the
crew were prompt in throwing the
struggling man a line. They were
horrified however to see the mun go
under and the barge pass over liiin
This barge being 160 feet long and going
but slowly, thev considered bis chances
of evW coming to the surface again small.

The Nelaon Miner waxes hysterical
over the action of the New Denver

Union the Miner's fire is badly misdirected. From what is known of the Nelson

cuts ti i ico. The weight of its articles is
usually in the same fix.

The difference of cost between a

The poor powder would cost
many times this in doctors' bills.
Royal Baking Powder may cost a little
more per can, but it insures perfect,
wholesome food. In fact, it is more
economical in the end, because it goes
further in leavening and never spoils
the  food.
Royal Baking Powder used always in
making the biscuit and cake saves both
health and money.
You cannot, if you value good health, afford
to use cheap, low-grade, alum baking powders. They are apt tn spoil the food; they
do endanger the health. All physicians will

Mr. Morris, wbo tbis week purchased a large block of stock in the
Noonday mine, is a business man who
has wade hia fortune through hi. own
efforti. He believes in hiring nood
men and in paying good wages. The
lact that |3.50 was being paid tbe
Noonday miners for every eight-hour
shift did not deter him from putting
his money into tbe mine.

The hoed push of the Silver-Lead
Minea Association show their colors
admirably in the way   they did the
annual assessment work oo several ol
their claims in tins district during the
last week or two.   It shows that these
would-be dictators of British Columbian law are determined to down the
miners of this section even at their
own personal lobs and that a few dollars expended by them for this purpose
is considered welt spent.   These leader* in the cry of malicious legislation,
are themselves acting maliciously aud
spitefully toward the Slocan. miner.
A man of ordinary sense will not eu-
rich the treasury of the province by
1100. rather tbau do au  assessmeut
work on a mineral claim.     A   man
whose head had uot grown to a  peak
from  t-.t(otiem or   uiuleishnu.s would
prefer paying $100 for tbat amount ot
work to payiug   $10 0 for nothing.
But such able mine    managers  and
trustees of other people-.*  mui.ey a*.

managers are these?   Where is   their

The records show that for fear some
poor prospector or miner should be
able to earn a few needed dollars by
honest work, such men as J. Roderick
Robertson, George Hughes and other.*.
among tbe mine owners are paying
into the Provincial treasury sums of
one hundred dollars in lieu of having
those amounts of assessment works
done. These are the men who are
trying to starve the Canadian workingmen out of their own land ai.d
force them to seek employment in the
mines of a foreign country or be peoned
for the privilege of living and working in their native land. And yet
these men, headed by this man Robertson, have the effrontery to ask the
business men of the Kootenays to sap-
port them in their efforts to peonixo
tbe workingmen and override the law
of the land. Tbe acts of such men as
these should be remembered Any
measure asked for by theae meu ahould
be fought and combat ted by Labor as
it will doubtless Im some cunningly
devised scheme to provide a weapon to
be used against it
manager* to secure good miners will
soon begin. If they are not able to
get a full crew of skilled miners tboy
have themselves to blame for driving
soini* of out best boys away. But if
ihey make their peace with the
unions, good miners will 60on Hook in.
The conduct of tho Slocan miners
during the preseut strike has been
such ___. to (*ommaiid the respect of
our business community. Although
they have been insulted by the presn
of the mine owners, aud have been
ticcu-ed of all kinds of crimes by this
..11 me crowd. They bave tieated it
with the silent contempt it deserved
and have gone along attending to their
own business. We are proud to
know that We have so many good
citizens in our community and only
hope that when our population increases that tbe new influx will lie
made up of as good material as these
same miners.
