 PRINCETON, JUNE 14,  1902.
FERNIE    DISASTER.
Serious Defects in Coal Mining I
Laws—Alexander  Sharp,    J
M. E., Discusses Necessary Changes.
The terrible catastrophe by whichTjy
miners lost My-jr lives in the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Co's No. 2 mine at Fernie has
shocked the people of Canada from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and a rigid inquiry should be instituted to determine
upon whose shoulders the responsibility
for the awful fatality must icst. The accident was caused by some defect in the
laws regulating such mines, or else the
disregarding.pf the;laws  in existence by
the operations of the ' diamond drill
now working on the coal lands of the T.
G. Holt Syndicate about 5 miles from
Princeton, was interviewed by a Star
representative for the purpose of getting
his views on the regulations now in forci
in this province for the governing of coa
mining.
Mr. Sharp was for nearly six years sup
erintendent and manager of the Welling
ton Collieries on Vancouver Island, and
is a certificated colliery manager for
> Great Britain and the Province of British
Columbia, and shonld therefore be well
qualified to speak on the subject.
Mr. Sharp suggests that
be appointed by the gov
. certain in what manner such accidents as
those at Fernie and Extension could be
reduced.
There are a number of weak points in
our present laws that ought to be looked
into. For instance the working with
naked lights in mines where gas lias
been discovered ; the using of electricity
for lighting purposes or the hauling of
coal in a gaseous mine, and the using of
powder that gives off a flame in a mine
where locked safety lamps are used.
The British Coal Mines Regulation
Act of 1887 says that in a mine where explosive, gas has been found for three con-
secutive~ days only locked safety lamps
shall be used for twelve months after,
and if at any time during that period gas
should again be observed, the miners are
compelled to use safety lamps for one
year from the time the gas was last noticed.
An amendment was added to this Act
in 18^7, which was called the " Explosive of Coal Mines Order," which states
that no explosives other than " permitt-
-ed explosives " may be used in certain
classes of mines or parts of mines where
it has been found necessary to work with

THE GREAT NORTHERN COMING.
According to the editor of the
Palmer Mountain Prospector, who
claims to have accurate information
on the subject, the Great Northern
will start within the coming year to
extend its system from Grand
Forks to Midway, and from that
point to the Coast. The road will
strike the Similkameen river near
its junction with the Okanagon and
will follow the former stream to
Princeton, and from here go up the
Tulameen and across the Hope
range. It has been evident for
some time that Hill intended building through this rich section, and
the coming of his road will be eagerly welcomed by the people of the
district who are thoroughly sick
and weary of having the country's
progress hindered, and its development retarded until it suits the
pleasure of the C. P. R. to give
us a line.
COAL MINING LAWS.
On the front page of this issue
appears an interview with Alexander Sharp, M. E., in which he discusses at some length the laws
having in view the protection ofl
the men engaged in the mining of
coal in this province. Mr. Sharp
has had a wide experience, and has
made a special study of such matters. This coupled with the fact
that he has been a keen observer of
the results of such regulations as he
speaks of, should entitle his views
to more   than  ordinary  consider-
We trust this expression of opinion on his part will start a discussion that will not end until some
better methods are found for safeguarding the lives of British Columbia's 4000 coal miners.
EXCHANGE  COMMENTS.
Tbe opposition lead by Mr. McBride have forced the government
to drop their land grants to railway
corporations in British Columbia.
On Tuesday the government introduced the modified railway bill.
The land grant is entirely eliminated, the money bonus being fixed at
$5,000 per mile, in tbe case of the
Canada Northern, and $4,500 per
mile for the Coast-Kootenay road.
—Revelstoke Herald.
MacKenzie & Mann have recovered $327,000 from the Dominion
government because they asked for
and the senate refused to let them
have it. This opens up a new line
of possibilities for financial operations. We may next hear Bill and
Dan asking for everything west of
Lake Superior, and then suing the
Dominion for everything on earth
except the old flag if the request is
refused.—Paystreak.

SOME COLO FACTS.
The Northwest Magazine says
that the following symposium on
" Liars " is worth reading, eveu if
it fails to do the subject complete
justice:—
The liar whom the   editor hates
rst of all is the man who, when
dunned for a year's subscription,
» he only received two or three
copies during the year, and refuses
to pay.—Clarksville Graphic.
Next to, if not above, this one,
the editor hates a liar who takes
the paper seven or eight years, and
hen finally cornered for settlement, says he never ordered the
paper at all.—Pike County Post.
But the worst liar of the whole
outfit is the man who takes the paper several years, then moves away
without paying or saying anything
about it, and yet says he is an hon-
t man.—Elsbery Advance.
Brethren, you all fall short of the
truth. The biggest liar of the lot
is the editor who publishes the obituary of these aforesaid liars and intimates that they have gone to
heaven.—Plymouth    Independent.

uruerous   tests, to   promise great

sevenths of the coal areas to political favorites. Canada paid the
price which British Columbia demanded for the whole property,
one-seventh of which conies to the
country and six-sevenths of which
goes to people who never paid any-
Borrowing Trouble.
Tests made on the low-grade ore
of one of the Rossland mines gave I
the following results : The concentrates by the oil process contained
6.08 per cent, of copper, while concentration by water gave only 2.6
per cent., the silver and gold contents being proportionately higher
and the tailings showing much
higher recovery in the case of the
oil than by the water concentration.
Preliminary tests by this process
of ore from the Snowshoe mine,
Boundary districts, have also proved satisfactory, and it is very probable that several Elmore plants will
ere long be in operation in the low
grade camps of the province.
Crow's Nest Atrocity.
The Globe would have the public understand that Hon. Clifford
Sifton, says the Toronto Telegram
is a "dreffle smart man," inasmuch
as he has secured 50,000 acres of
Crow's Nest Pass coal land for the
country.
These coal lands may be roughly
divided into the 50,000 acres which
are now vested in the country and
the 300,000 acres which wer
bed by private hands.
All these coal lands belong to
V British Columbia. British Colum
' bia put its coal fields under option
to the British Columbia Southern
Railway Company, afterwards
known as the Crow's Nest Pass
Brigadiers.
British Columbia offered these
lands, subject to a royalty of five
cents per ton on the coal mined
therein, as the price of a railway.
The Crow's Nest Pass Brigadiers
undertook to build the railway and
e3rn the coal lands. The Globe-
Sifton variety of statesmanship induced the Liberal party to force
Canada into the position of building the railway and earning the
coal land for politicians who never
built anything.
' If it be a triumph of statesmanship for Hon. Clifford Sifton to se-
V cure 50,000 acres of coal land for
Canada whose money built the railway, how much greater is the statesmanship of the Crow's Nest Pass
people who secured 300,006 acres of
coal laud without doing anything ?

All these coal lands belong to
firitish Columbia. British Colum-
I bia put its coal fields under option
to the British Columbia Southern
Railway Company, afterwards
known as the Crow's Nest Pass
Brigadiers.
British Columbia offered these
lands, subject to a royalty of fi
cents per ton on the coal mined
therein, as the price of a railway
The Crow's Nest Pass Brigadiers
undertook to build the railway and
e3rn the coal lands. The Globe-
Sifton variety of statesmanship induced the Liberal party to force
Canada into the position of building the railway and earning the
coal land for politicians who never
built anything.
' If it be a triumph of statesmanship for Hon. Clifford Sifton to secure 50,000 acres of coal land for
Canada whose money built the railway, how much greater is the statesmanship of the Crow's Nest Pass
people who secured 300,006 acres of
coal land without doing anything ?
The   greater   the value   of   the
city of the deal which gave six-
sevenths of the coal areas to political favorites. Canada paid the
price which British Columbia demanded for the whole property,
one-seventh of which comes to the
country and six-sevenths of which
goes to people who never paid anything.

" Well, when they come to school

" You mean thing ! " exclaimed
Edna, as the tears came into her
eyes. " What have my poor children ever done to you ? "
BICH STRIKE ON WATERLOO-
A rich strike has been made on
150 foot level of the Waterloo miri
Camp McKinney. A drift on this level
ran into a vein of rich ore in which the
free gold can be plainly seen. The
is fully three feet wide where first struck
and is steadily widening. The strike ha*
caused considerable excitement in the
camp, as il is the best showing yet
