Another Accident at the Nickle Plate
Mine in Hedley Camp—In the
Justice Court—Rock Creek Placer

/' A report comes up, Thursday, from
Twenty Mile that - another accident had
occurred at the Nickle Plate mine, similar
in character to the one which happened
a few weeks ago.   This time a man by

In the Justice Court.
A case of obtaining money unl
pretences was tried before Ji
man, Thomas apil IVfnrph
. day, in which J. Bromley w^ the defendant. It was clai
tion that the defendant had obtained
money from the government while fore
man on the Keremeos-Pnnceton road, by
signing the name ofamaa^|a_the pay
roll who had never-worked on the road.
After some very damaging evidence
given the prisoner was bound over in

Rock Creek Placer Cote-frany.
Several shareholders in the Rock Creek
Consolidated Placer Mining company
visited the company's placer claims, five
miles up the creek from the Rock Creek
townsite, last Tuesday. Leaving Greenwood at 4 a. m., the party reached its
destination shortly after 9 o'clock. It
was found that the dam was well forward
towards completion, with the gate finished
and the waste flume now being constructed. Booming operations will not be
commenced until about a fortnight hence,
by which time all the ice should be out
of the narrow canyon, through which the
creek flows a little below the dam, and
other obstacles to a clear run for the rush
of water and gravel shall have been removed. Several pans of wash, taken
! from just below the dam by members of
the visiting party, each gave excellent
prospects in rough gold, so that sanguine
expectations of future good returns were
encouraged.—Greenwood Miner.

Steamboat Explosion.
New Westminster, April 18—The city
was cast into a state of consternation yesterday afternoon by the 'startling news
that the steamer Ramona, Capt. Seymour
one of the passenger boats plying between this city and Chilliwack, had suf-
ferred an explosion of her boiler, and
that several people had been killed. The
explosion occurred about 1.30 p. m. near
Fort Langley, on her upward trip, and
for some hours it was not possible to as-
No one was killed by the steam itself,
but nine were frightfully scalded.
The three people killed are thought to
have jumped overboard in fright, and
thus met death in the water. One was
an Indian.
The two women who were drowned
were- named respectively Mrs. Bailey and
Mrs. Morrison.

Through the Week.
The over-taxing of mines is a theme
■ which is being dwelt upon by a great
many papers in the province, and is
in which the legislative body at Victoria
should heed if they have the province's
interests at heart. Careful attention
should be given to the fostering of the
principal industry and resource of the
The idea of a lawn tennis club is a
good one, and we wish the new organization every luck. This should not, however, deter the lovers of lacrosse and
other sports in forming as soon as
town has acquired sufficient numbers.
Apropos of sports would be the building
of a race track by forming an association
of those interested in the subject. Such
a track would become in great favor
during the summer by those who love
racing, but object to running ovi

Once upon
a number of frogs by
into a can of milk. (No local application, please—there are no frogs in the
river.) " How is this?" they exclaimed,
" but a short time ago we were happy and
contented, all our surroundings conjugal
]to health and growth. Now what
change. We are submerged by an e
men t. though of value in its way, yet
pugnant to our taste, and fatal to frog
life. We may not escape, but we will
not give up without a kick." So all con
menced to kick. One after another gre'
tired, their kicks grew faint, and one b
one they sank to the bottom, dead. Br
one would not give np until he had given
"just one more kick,", and it was that
effort that was needed. He floated out on
a piece of butter. Moral—for the prospector, mine owner, mine worker, business man and artisan in the Similkameen,
keep a'kicking.   This is butter-making

Kansas City, who, in the sacred name
pure and undefiled womanhood, object to
female figures in advertising. Keep it up,
■ ladies. Do not stop with the grinning
disgrace to her sex whose rounded calves
flash upon us from the billboards. Be
not content with suppressing the generous revelations of the music hall circe.
Make the unabashed Phryne of the
magazines wear a sealskin jacket between
her corset and her satin halftone bosom.
No, no, unterrified champions of an unpointed household ; don't stop here. Demand, no less upon esthetic than upon
moral grounds, the abolition of the
woman who gives testimonials to makers
of patent medicines. You know her, my
pure-minded friends. Her cross-hatched
features seem indeed to be hewn from
old cheese. Her hair has the sinuous seductiveness of telephone wire, and her
gown is a crime against good dressmaking. She usually says that seventy-
six bottles of Dr. Foolfleecer's dandelion
distillation made her " feel like another
woman.!' Also, that no mortal skill
could make her look' like one ! Alas,
also for the conscientiousness of the
artist, who would not soften a single line
of ugliness. The patent medicine woman
frequently remarks that she has "been
snatched from the arms of death." I
have ho doubt that the king of terrors
gave her up resignedly, not to say cheerfully. Let us get rid of this dreadful
creature, ladies, and we shall not mourn
' if the Aphrodite in sanitary underclothes
continues to entice us in our own favorite
magazines.—Lue Vernon, in the Vancouver Independent.

••take a front rank as a mining center.
Such is the opinion of Mr. J. E. Saucier,
who has just returned from there. In
company with a coal expert he visited
Ollala, Princeton, Twenty Mile and other
points and is loud in his praise of the
mineral sections around these places. He
was after coal lands and purchased and
took up over 2000 acres. On this land
there are some fine measures of bituminous and semi-anthracite coal. Some of
the veins are nine feet wide of clean coal.
The intention  is to develop these coal

A large number of representatives of

A report from Spokane says: " It is
stated here on good authority that Mr.
James Breeh, of the Dominion Copper
company, operating the Brooklyn and
Stemwinder properties at Phoenix, has
decided to locate his proposed smelter at
Midway, B. C, and that he will leave
shortly for Chicago to place the order for
the machinery. His contention is that
by locating at Midway he will be in the
center of a large mining territory and be
as well situated in regard to the mines on
the American side as the smelter at
Grand Forks."
