Wilbir was instantly  killed at tl:e Mother Lode mine on  Sunday morning' last. He was a  machinist engaged in the machine shop  at the time-.- He and his fellow workmen disregarded the warning- from the  whistle and remained at wotk instead  of seeking the usual place of safety.  A piece of rock weighing about 150  pounds came crashing through the  roof of the machine shop and struck  Mr. Wilbir on the head, killing him  instantly.  Dr. G. M. Foster, coroner, held an  inquest Monday; his jury being W. G;  Gaunce, foreman; Phil Macdonald, Neil  Lamont, George F. Dougherty, W.  Wilson and F. M. McLaine.  The evidence given by Carl Holman,  the mine superintendent, JR. Mantell,  ���Henry Joly and others, demonstrated  the strenuous life which the people  living at the Mother Lode lead. The  offices, shops and residences are near  the open quarries, and when any deep  ;blasting takes place all are under  oiders to go to a place of safety. The  warning is a number of whistles, after  which sufficient time is given to seek  safety before "the fuse is "ignited." Mr.:  Holman stated that 'some were reckless  and often disregarding the strict instructions of the company which were  printed and posted at prominent places  at the mine. This view was confirmed  by Mr. Mantell, who stated that when  there were only a few working iu the  machine shop they never failed to seek  a place of safetv under an unused ore  bin when the whistles gave them warning, but as the force increased they became more careless until it became the  rule to disregard the warning almost  entirely. This' careless . practice continued until Sunday last when the fatal  accident occurred. They all heard the  warning whistles but paid no'attention  to them, with the above result. Tlie  evidence of allelic others^-corroborated-  this and the jury brought in the following verdict:  To Dr. Foster, Coroner:  We, your coroner's jury, appointed  to inquire into the cause and circumstances attending the death of Lafayette D. Wilbir at the Mother Lode  mine on the morning of November  22nd, instant, beg to report that from  the evidence submitted we find that the  deceased came to his death by being  struck on head by a large piece of ore  blown from the glory hole, about SOO or  600 feet distant, with such force as to  carry it through the roof and ceiling of  the machine shop wherein the deceased  was working at the titiie.  We find that a system of warning  whistles has been established, instructing the men to seek places of safety  provided for them, whenever a deep  hole is to be set of, and allowing ample  time for them to do so. We find that  the warning whistle was duly blown  before th,e shot in question was set off,  but that the deceased failed to comply  with the established warning and seek  a place of safety, about 40 feet distant.  We do not believe the employing  company is in any way responsible for  the result.  We arc of opinion, however, that  some greater precaution should be taken  to safeguard the lives of the men who  may be sleeping during the times of  blasting, either by further protection  to the roof and exposed walls of the  bunk house or by removal of the said  bunk house to a greater distance from  tne works.  W. G. GauncK, foreman.  The death of Mr. Wilbir has cast a  gloom over the mining community.  He was well and favorably known in  many mining camps in the province.  He settled in Colville, Washington,  many years ago and being a competent  mechanic lie secured a hiera.ivc  position with Hciuze during the construction of the Trail smelter. Later  he was engineer at the Center Star,  Rossland, and came to Greenwood to  take a position iu the Greenwood  smelter when opened. He was afterwards transferred to the Mother Lode  mine. He was a native of Michigan  and about 52 years of age.    He  leaves  a wife and a family of one son and two  daughters who reside in Anaconda.  The funeral which took place from  the family residence Wednesday afternoon was largely attended. Rev. M.  B. McKte conducted the services at  tlie house. The pallbearers were Peter  Lover, Leo Pinger, Phil McDonald,  Oscar Johnson, Fred Bergheart aud  Angus Nicholson.  MINING FLOAT  Boundary  News of the Week in the  and Elsewhere  The Rossland camp shipped 9690 tons  of ore last week.  The success of the Elmore oil concentrator at Rossland is now fairly well  arsurcd.  ' The placer mines of AUin produced  $430,000 this season; an increase of  $30,000 over that of last year.  During the month ending September  30, Canada exported 10,893,000 pounds  of copper valued at $1,024,000.   .  The Kootenoian says Kaslo is to have  a smelte***. This is tlie forty-second  that the Kootenaian has promised for  that town.  Great excitement still prevails at  Poplar Creek. The latest new discovery is the show; having covered  everything.  The ore of the Oro Denoro mine is  being gotten out and loaded ou the  railway dump cars at a cost not exceeding 40 cents a ton.  The noted Nettie L. mine in the Ferguson camp has been shut down, for  the first time in six years. Operations  will be resumed when the new mill is  completed.  Robert Clark, owner of the famous  Seattle miue on the north fork of the  Kettle river, wiites the Times that the  report that the Seattle was closed down  pending litigation was ati error. The  title to the Seattle is perfect and there  is no litigation whatever.  The Michigan capitalists who recently bonded the -Volcanic,; have also  bonded the Eastern Star in Wellington  camp from Fraser Bros. The -Eastern  Star attracted considerable attention a  few years ago because of the big surface showing of high grade copper ore.  ' The Cariboo mine at Camp McKinney  has been shut down. It is understood  that the bulk of the ore is now refractory and cannot therefore be treated to  advantage in the mill. The Waterloo  adjoining the Cariboo is installing a  Hendryx plant, and should this prove  successful in all probability one will  be installed at the Cariboo.  An order in council has been passed  by the Dominion government permitting the outry into Canada free of duty  pf_orang-cs.mineral,_dry ,_w.hiie^aud���red=  leads made from lead produced in  Canada. In the refined process the  substances mentioned are extracted,  and it is felt only proper that Canadian  products of this kind should be allowed  to come into the country again free,  Provincial Legislature  The provincial legislature was  opened yesterday. The speech from  the throne referred to the financial  condition of the province. Hon. C. E.  Pooley was unanimously elected  speaker.  Stack Is Completed  The "Union Jack" floated gaily from  the big stack at the B. C. Copper company's smelter on Monday. The last  brick was laid on Sunday afternoon  and a rousing cheer was given   by the  months in erecting the big flue. Monday the scaffolding was taken down so  that for the next 200 or 300 years it is  not likely thai a human being will view  the town from the top of this pile of  brick. The stack is 120 feet high and  the inside diameter is 12 feet. There  are over 220,000 brick in it. The work  reflects the greatest credit on Foreman  Ptterson an d his staff.  OPPOSED   TO   SOCIALISM  The American Federation of Labor  Goes on Record  At the annual convention of the  American Federation of Labor just  closed at Boston the federation placed  itself on record as opposed to Socialism  by a vote of 2185 for and 11,282 against.  D. W. Richmond, president of the  Railroad Clerks' Association, declared  that his organization would withdraw  if the federation adopted socialistic  ideas-  John* Mitchell of the United Mine  Workers, said he thought it a great  mistake if Socialist friends attempted  to commit the labor organization to the  principles in which they believe. "It  would be a sad day indeed." Mr,  Mitchell concluded, "if trade unions  were made the tail''cud of a political  organization."  Mr. Gotnpers became very earnest  and even bitter in his sratcnients  against Socialism, and was interrupted  frequently from the floor. In closing,  he said: "I am at variance with your  philosophy. You are unsound, socially  you. are wrong, and industrially you  are art impossibility. I have faith in  the trade unionist movement because  it is the protector of labor today, and  if emancipation comes some time it  must be through the trades union  movement." A great volume of applause followed Mr. Gomp2rs' speech.  Later Gotnpers was re-elected president over a Socialist, the latter polling  only 126 votes.  Police, Police!  ���As the editor of this "family journal  was'in the midst of an article on the  "Downfall of the Provincial Government," a long, lean, hungry individual winded his way into the sanctum,  placed on the safe the following  gemlet,' and then suddenly disappeared:  The snowy season now is here;  The coasters down the streets do ride;  And everyone is full of cheer,  For we owe the snow to McBride.  Wants Stock  At Spokane Robert Mack has brought  suit against John Mack and the  Athelstan Gold Mining. & Copper  company asking for an injunction to  prevent the transference of 116,666  shares of thecompanystockJto^W.^J._  Morrison. Robert Mack claims the  stock belongs to him and that John  Mack is holding it in trust and is going  to sell it for his own benefit. The  case is on a change of venue from  King county.  T00M0CH  FOR WATER  Government   Thinks   Ratu  High for Court House  I.;  C. Copper Company and Lot Owneis  Cannot Agree on Price  Not True  The report sent from Phoenix to the  Nelson News that the Snowshoe miue  cannot ship to the limit of its capacity  as the smeller is unable to handle its  entire output is not in accordance with  the facts. The Sunset smelter has  handled and is prepared to handle all  the ore the Snowshoe mine cares to  ship. The small shipment from the  Snowshoe mine this week is accounted  for by the fact that a C. P. K. engine  was derailed on the Snowshoe switch  last week and the railway company  required   several  days   to restore the  men who had  labored for nearly  two - engine to the track.  The right of way for the B. C. �����(���]������  per company  was   not secured   righr  away.    Robert Wood and Mrs. Lulu E .  Sutherland,   who  own   the    propert ���  across which the spur  will  run,   hav -  been paying taxes on  the same sine���:���  the town was   incorporated   and   the  believe their lots should be worth to th  company the price  upon  which   taxc  were paid. The company holds a somewhat    different     view.; Mr.     Wood,  through: his    solicitors,    McLeod    6  Brown,   and   Mrs.  Sutherland  ou he-  own behalf, notified the council of thi;-  difference   of   opinion   and   also sug  gested that no portions of the streets iic  that vicinity  be alienated  until   thci.  claims were   satisfied.   As  the bylav  granting   the   company   right-of-way  across the streets was to be  passed  oi;  the   distinct   understanding   that "thy  claims   of   property   owners    affecteti  should be satisfied by the company, th-  bylaw will be held  in  abeyance until  the difference-of opiniou is  wiped out.  This course was  decided  upon  at thi-  regular meeting of the council held oi  Monday   evening with  Acting-Mayo.'  Ross in the chair and  Aldermen  Ban  nerman McKenzie and G.tilley present. -  To pay too much for one's whisky ie  excusable   in   the   great and gloriou  west, but to pay. too much for water  i  a disgraceful thing.    William Grahan  McMynn,-    government   agent,    gob-  commissioner, stipendiary magistrate,  judge of the small debts' court,  issue  of mariage licenses, etc., etc., does no:  believe   in   paying   too much for anything���much less water. So when Cit.  Collector Taylor asked him to potlatca  S7.50 for one month's use of the  pure  and   unadulterated   brand of Adam'*  ale   that   percolates through  the city  pipes and finds its way into the statel.  building built by  a paternal  government for the use of Mr. McMynn,   hi:;  staff of officials and the public generally, --Mrr^McMynn"decided"1 thai'"tli*1"  state of the provincial   finances  would  not admit of this sum being paid to th .  city   exchequer.    He   interviewed   th :  council   regarding    the    matter    an '���.  pointed out that in Ross'and where th -  government building was  larger  tha *  the   one   iu    Greenwood,     the    city's  charge was less than  four dollars  pc ;*  month by   the   meter system.    It was  suggested   to   Mr. McMynn   that   Unpeople of Rossland were easy, that the;  never drank water there  anyway  an',  that he should quote figures front Nc  son where  the   same   rules  regurdin ;  water   did   not   obtain.   The  government agent promised to do this and th  water question will not be settled until  next week.  A municipal election will be held c  the second Thursday in January. Tl.  matter-is not very much discussed an  the first official intimation came c  Monday night when Alderman Bai-  nerman gave notice of an election b-  law.

PiiK Yuak $2 00  Six Months  1 25  TO  FOKKIGN   COONTRIKS   2 SO  FRIDAY,   NOVEMBER 27  1903  A NEW ERA  The paying* of a one per cent  dividend on December 16 by the  Granby Mining* company, which  has been definitely announced  from Montreal, is the beginning*  of a new era in the historj* of the  big* low grade mines of the  Boundary. It is now six years  since Jay P. Graves began development work on the Knob  Iii 11 and Old Ironsides. At that  time it was supposed that higher  values would be found in the ore  and that the dividend paying era  would arrive much sooner. Later  development demonstrated that  there was an unlimited' quantity  of ore, but that- the values were  such as to demand new and more  economical methods, of mining  and treatment. Those methods  were introduced with marked  success.   In the Boundary mining  and smelting is  carried  on  at  a  o  less cost than  anywhere  else  in  the world. These innovations  took time and delayed the dividend paying stage. It has now  arrived and it is sure to be  regular.  What is true of the Granby  mines is equally true of other big*  low grade mines in  the  district.  would not be benefited since, the  price of land would be sure to  increase out of proportion to any  advantage that a duty might  bring. It would be the same old  story. Protection always favors  the favored few.  Frank Moberly is a life-long  Conservative. He is also an experienced railway engineer, well-  known in British Columbia,  whose verdict upon any question  having to do with railway construction carries convincing  weight, not only in this country  and the United States, but across  the pond. Mr. Moberly has' this  to say in regard to the national  transcontinental railway: "lam  a Conservative, but I must say I  admire Sir Wilfrid Laurier's  transcontinental railway policy,  which is the act of a broad-  minded and fearless statesman;  and I also believe Mr. Sifton has  a better grasp of the needs, and  of the enormous capabilities  of the Northwest than man}* of  his predecessors."  Football this year is not so  fatal as in past years. So far  only nine were killed. In the  game between Washington and  Nevada : universities at Seattle  last Saturday the general rushing  and mauling of the spectators  was disappointingly mild compared to the scene at the Rox-  burghe-Goelet wedding* in- New  York two weeks aero.  Did Jay P. Graves know what  he was talking about six years  ago, or did he talk to get money  from the wary investor ? It matters little now. Graves got money  to develop his mines and the investor will get his dividends.  Nothing succeeds like success.  "The~MotheFLode, Ihe Snowshoe,  the Oro Denoro and other big  properties will just as surely be  dividend payers when the proper  time arrives.  Big bodies of low grade ore are  not without compensations. More  men are employed and wages are  just as high if not higher than in  higher grade camps. The  amount of ���������money distributed is  greater and there is a satisfaction  in knowing that the permanency  v>f the district has been demonstrated beyond a doubt.  The crippled condition of the  finances of the province has.called  for a cutting* down of all expenses  by the McBride government. It  is stated a cut will be made in the  provincial officials' salaries on  account of the days getting  shorter.  THE BRITISH BATTLE  All England hasn't gone daft  over Chamberlain's policy of protection. The Leeds and Yorkshire Mercury, the most influential journal in the Midlands, is  not only pointing out the fallacies  of the Chamberlain doctrine, but  / is also urging the Liberals not to  lightly reckon the strength of  their adversaries. Instead of  leaving the battle to callow  politicians of the Tory party the  Liberals should be found on the  battlefield leading the forces.  Tn a recent issue of the Mercury  is a striking article in which it is  pointed out that a duty on wheat  will not help the farmer unless  the duty is against the product  of the colonies as well as that of  foreign countries. Canada in a  few years will have as large a  surplus of wheat as the United  States. Even with such a universal   duty   the   tenant farmer  The working classes of India  do not need any unions. They  are so similar in mind and temperament that they act in concert  without organization and establish a short day by refusing to  work longer.  Sir Charlie TuppViV says the  count\ has more money than it  needs. This is bad again. But  it will doubtless furnish the  Tories with a new campaign cr}*  against the too full pocket  book.  ll Victoria board of trade has endorsed Hon. Joseph Chamberlain's  fiscal polic}- for the British empire. Now that Victoria has endorsed Chamberlain, it's all oil  with the other fellows.  Who is the lucky man with a  few thousand Knob Hill or Old  Ironsides shares which he purchased for three or four cents and  thre wtheni intojthebottom of his  trunk ?

He did so and is a  well man today, For sale by J. L.  White, Greenwood, and A. F. Thomas,  Midway.  Ain't It the Truth  An exchang-e truly remarks: " 1  hain't judging-no man by de way he  talks. I'ze had a man yell me outer  his co'nfield and run me half a mile,  an' afterwards present me wid two  dozen ears, an' I'ze had a man talk so  soft au' sweet dat it brung tears to my  eyes, an' den charge me 37 per cent  interest on money loaned on de fam'ly  sewiu' machine."  A Timely Suggestion.  This is the season of the year when  the prudent and careful housewife replenishes her supply of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy.- It is certain to be  needed before the winter is over, and  results are much more prompt and satisfactory when it is kept at hand and  given as soon as the cold is contracted  and before it has become settled in the  system.

Englishman's Three Gods
'The Englishman is the last man'
among civilized races to be an artist, a
musician, or a poet, but hi! is the first
to be a gentleman. An Englishman
thinks coldly, loves coldly and fights
coldly, but he gets there just the same.
There is always a fascinating smoothness about him, and he worships three
gods—his flag, his trade and his top hat.
Her Only Comment
" Here's an account of a woman who
committed suicide because her husband
had died," said Growells. as he glanced
up from his paper. "What do you
think of that ?" "I think," answered
Mrs.iG., '-that she married the one man
in about 1,000,000,000."
For a Bad Cold
If you have a bad cold you need a
^ood reliable medicine like Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to loosen and relieve it, and to allay the irritation and
inflammation of the throat and lungs.
The soothing and healing jirspertics of
this remedy aud the quick cures which
it effects make it a favorite everywhere.

They decided to keep two furnaces iu operation  during the winter arid install a third  furnace in early spring.  G. C. ' McLaughlin, who threw the  'P,. rnhii- Swi-ilc hist week, has returned  !<.. , iiv.-iiwi"��l, and will remain all  winter. Jack O'Neil of liholt. who  won the jumping' contests here on  Miners' Union day, wants a go with  Mac. So does Chris Mack uf Phoenix.  McLaughlin is arranging several  matches and intends lo have tlicin  pulled oft" in Greenwood. He has  opened up training quarters here and  to pass away the time, it is understood,  will train a liinitc.l number ol" pupils  to become future McLaughlins or  McLeods.  ESSE  Blake Wilson of P. Burns & Co.,  Nelson, spent the week iu the city.  There will be a number of marriages  blown in, in Greenwood, shortly.  H. S.

Even the elements showed their  contempt for the McBride administration, for on the opening day of the  provincial house it rained  The family of the late L. H. Wilbir  desire through the Times to thank all  those whose aid and sympathy were so  generously extended in , their sad  bereavement.  Santa Clans will not forget the school  children at Houiidary Falls this year.  He will be present at a Christmas tree  entertainment which will be given in  Smith's hall, Boundary Falls on Christmas eve. Au excellent program is  being arranged and a large crowd is  expected to see the children get their  Christmas boxes.  Tom Peickart, who is interested in  several claims on Poplar creek, re  ceived a box per express from those  diggings last Monday. Tom thought  the box contained the monthly cleanup of "nuggets" from his claims; but  on opening it the only thing, in sight  was a common ciay brick worth about  a quarter of a cent. Tom murmured,  "A joke is a joke; but this is no joke,"  as he handed over SI.SO for express  charges.  received from fhe other members of his  establishment, to maintain whom he  had resorted to the device of representing himself to Deacon Smith as a married man. Their willingness to help  him was so great that one and all were  anxious to personate the wife and to  forage for offspring.  Miss Martin and Miss Schon as  respectively the housekeeper aud Sally  the cook: very ably sustained their J��  parts, and the fun waxed fast and  furious when the gurdeue*', Jobion  (Mr. Nutter) with Hibernian -veal, but  little discretion, purloined a baby of  Ethiopian origin. The part of Deacon  Smith was played by one "to the manner born," and was a very artistic  piece of acting, as indeed was that of  Jobsoii who caused frequent roars of  laughter. Nor can we omil to mention  the part of Louisiana (Mr. O'Brien) the  negro mother of the abstracted baby  and her efforts to rescue her child from  the various children provided.  .. We do nol think il isau exaggeration  to say that those whu were present  witnessed one of the best dramatic  performances yet seen   in  Greenwood.  A good deal of credit is due to all the  workers who helped to make the event  so successful both in the afternoon and  throughout the evening.  i|rfciS-Sei&:*S-S-S&*Sil-:*S-ai��&-&e**��6;��6-��*.  JUST  TO   HAND  Standard Fraction  Work is progressing on the Standard  Fraction on Wallace mountain, west  fork of Kettle river. This property,  which is tlie eastern extension of the  Rambler, is owned by J. \V Nelson  and W. Rambo of Greenwood. At  present they are running a tunnel on  the lead. Yesterday Mr. Nelson received assay returns from an average  sample, which went S60.44 iu silver.  The vein is IS inches wide.  Winnipeg Shuts Down  The Winnipeg mine was closed down  last week. Financial difficulties were  the cause. It is understood that the  Bank of Montreal, Kossland, under  took to collect an old account against  the miue aud as funds were not available to meet this indebtedness and  continue operations, work had to be  suspended. It is understood arrange  meuts are being made to  pay the men.  A Musical Treat  The ladies, of the Konia.ii Catholic  Church are making arrangements for  the appearance here at au early date of  the celebrated Schobert Symphony  club and lady quartet of Chicago. This  is one of the very best companies on  the road and has received the highest  praise wherever they appeared. The  date of their appearance here will b'-  announced later. The Daily News of  Denver has this to say 'regarding the  company: "It is rarely, indeed, that  Denver is favored with such vocul  execution aud instrumental as well.  When it is said that the work of the  quartet is beyond criticism and the  other performances the work of pro  fessionals, the truth is told. It was a'  rare privilege, thoroughly appreciated  by the audiencerto-listen to^the^wonderful voices of the quartet iu their  harmonious blending and surprising  range, and there was not a number ou  the program but secured an encore."  CHURCH OF ENGLAND  Entertainment  at   the   Auditorium  Last Night a Success  Yesterday afternoon aud evening the  annual bazaar and sale of work, etc.,  in aid of the general fund of St. Jude's  was held in the Auditorium, There  was a fair attendance and the day was  successful.  The children appeared both afternoon  and evening in various dances, and  were most artistically dressed. Indeed  we think that three or four of the costumes would be very hard to beat.  Their performance seemed to give a  great deal of pleasure and they were  most enthusiastically received.  Light refreshments were served  by the ladies during the day.  The refreshments were looked  after by Mrs. Elkius; the children's  stall by Mrs. C. Ai,. Shaw; the candy  and flowers of Mrs. McMynn, and the  general stall by Mrs. Robert Wood,  president of the ladies' guild, and  others.  A very laughable comedy in three  acts, entitled "A Family Affair," was  performed during the evening, which  was greatly appreciated by ihc audience. Too much praise cannot be  tendered to F. McLaine for his excellent stage managing-, and the pains he  took in making it s'> great a success.
