TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.  The third fatality since construction  work commenced on the Phoenix  branch of the Great Northern occurred  at Summit City at 2 o'clock Monday  morning, when Salvator Dominica,  foreman Fred Johnson's camp, was  blown to atoms while cleaning out a  missed hole.  On Sunday evening a number of  blasts were set off. One of the charges  did not go off, and the men refused to  return to -work until an examination  had been made In order to save time  and to enable the force lo resume work  in the morning. Dominico went out  during the night to extract the missed  cfiargerwiiHThe~feiiiltrabove stated7  The. unfortunate man's remains,  which had been blown into small  pieces, were brought to this city yesterday for burial.  Dominico was highly thought of by  the men who worked under him, and  much regret is expressed at his untimely death.���Grand Forks Sun.  M OVERWHELMING LIBERAL MAJORITY  Is Returned to the House of Commons Committed to  The Grand trunk Pacific.  ZS :We are agente for  3' the  3- 20th CENTURY  H      CLOTHING  ���^3 See our fall samples  ~3 five hundred to pick  *^S and order suits from  Special attention is called to A. "Lt.  & Co.'s great clearance sale beginning  now. His ad. will be found on another  page.  A good job to all appearances is that  just completed by the city on the Twin  creek flume. The grade and direction  of the flume have both been changed  and the cross street levelled up by the  removal of part of the grade leading  southward to the east hill. A possibility of repetition of last spring's damage by freshet has,been reduced to a  minimum.  "When Dr. Russell one of the syndicate who underwrote the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated, was in Greenwood recently in speaking to the writer  o* our many fine stores, he said: "You  have as fine a display of meals up  there on the corner as you would find  in a New York shop." How is that for  P. Burns & Co. and their local manager  ' Julius Ehrlich.  It was with no uncertain voice that the people of Canada yesterday endorsed the past government and the present policy of Sir WIlfrid'I��aurier-  From ocean to ocean rolled one long, swelling wave of 'popular approval, its  crest only here and there broken by provincial dissent. Every province in the  Dominion with the exception of P. E. I. and Ontario gave the government a  majority and in the case of Ontario the parties today stand relatively just  about as they did before election. The recent adjustment of seats gave the  west a greater voice in the matter, and from Manitoba to the Pacific .the gov  .enimcn.t-ara.sjiustain.ed^ey.ery-.wh^^^ =   Of the 214 constituencies of the Dominion 206 voted yesterday, leaving  one in Ontario, three in theN. W. T., three in B. C. and one in the Yukon to  vote later. Of the 206 voting yesterday the latest and most reliable advices  give the parties as follows :���  labs.       Cons.  Ontario  ...���.,....   37 48  Quebec         54 11  Nova Scotia     18 0  New Brunswick       7 6  Prince Edward Island      1 3  Manitoba...     -6 4  Northwest Territories........      6 1  British Columbia .'.      5 0  73  Total  134  This means a clear majority of 61 to the government, about equal to  what it had in the House when dissolved. This is majority sufficient for any  government, but when the remaining constituencies vote it will be considerably increased. Most of those yet to hear from are liberal, and will be largely  benefitted by the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific and there is little doubt  of the outcome. All candidates in this constituency of Yale-Cariboo would  doubtless have preferred to have fought the battle out without any handicap.  As it is, the pleasure of Mr. Ross' assured victory will be slightly marred, as  doubtless some will think when the votes are counted that the issue here was  in measure affected by the party's success yesterday.  A CANDLE EXPERT.  |     RENBLL  J       & C��.  Provincial Attorney General Chas.  Wilson, with Oscar Chapmann Bass of  his department, have left for England  to present several appeals by this province to the Privy Council. One  touches the question of dominion or  provincial ownership of Deadman's  island at the entrance of Vancouver  harbor; another, and the most important, involves the right of this province to exclude by legislation Chinese  from the underground workings of  coal mines.  One of the most self-sufficient creatures in the world is the embryo mining expert, and the less his experience  the grea er his sense of self sufficiency.  "With some knowledge and more nerve  he will go up straight against anything and submit what to his mind is  a final analysis. Here is an instance:  "An eastern college graduate was sent  west to loDk up a mining proposition  and report to the eastern stockholders.  He was just out of college and ��� was  considered a bright, clever young man  The minebeing distant from a railway  supplies were hauled in in large quantities The day the young man arrived  a fresh supply of candles had been received. He was very much impressed  with the magnitude of the stock of  candles. The incident impressed him  particularly,   and   he   considered it a  very important feature of his investigation. He had made a discovery.  Economy being an important factor in  the success of all business ventures,  he embraced in his report the following: "I find on hand a large stock of  candles. There are thousands of  candles to be used ostensibly for light  ing the mine. I recommend that  henceforth mining operations be conducted in daylight and thereby save  the enormous outlay for candles."  A. L. "White & Co. are closing   out  their new funiture at "special prices.'  See the ad.  EATON'S JEWELERY.  Timothy Eaton lost $7000 worth of  jewelry tlie other day by burglary.

The two operas that will be  given here are "Fra Diavolo"* and "La  Mascott". Each of these excellent  pieces require a large numberfc-pf ..first  class singers, much handsome scenery,  and a very high order of artistic ability. The plots are intense,* :the music  s*-andard, and the comedy opportunities the best. Theso operas^ffer the  most pleasing amusment programmes  ever presented in this part of Canada  and are a hint of the high quality of  others to be offered if the patrbnage  will warrant the financial risk.:.

A Robins was the recipient  of a very handsome walking stick last  Sunday, presented by St. Ju-les Sunday school. The cane was suitably  engraved and presented on behalf of  the school by little Misses Redpath  and Jones. *  St'. Petkrsburg, Nov. 1 ���It was  publicly announced here yesterday that  an officer from each of the Russian  warships which took part in the firing  in the North sea October 21 would be  detained to appear before the international commission and the squadron  would proceed. They are the watch  officers on duty at the time of the  affair. Their names are not disclosed.  Of course Admiral Rojestvensky is  not among them. They are returning  at once to St, Petersburg.  LIBERAL MEETINGS.  The foreign office decided to adopt a  course most unusual for it and in order  to allay the public ezcitement gave out  to the press the following statement:  "Before the Russian fleet left Vigo  instructions were'given to the Russian  admiral with a view to preventing injury} to d'eu'tral'shipping during the  passage of the'Riissian fleet to the far  east. In compliance with Russia's  agreement, four Russian officers have  been left ,beind at Vigo.

R., has returned to Nelson, after  spending a week in this district, inspecting the big railway company's  interests. Mr, Lawrence was highly  impressed with the business prospects  of this section. "I spent the whole  week in the Boundary," said Mr. Lawrence, on his return to Nelson, "and  am more than pleased with the business'outlook for the winter from our  standpoint. At the present time there  is more mining activity in the Boundary country than at any time in its  history. More mines are actually shipping- ore to day than ever before, and  there are more properties getting on to  the shipping list than at any time I  can' remember. I look for an exceptionally busy winter, as the three  smelters will be working overtime before long, and even then I question  whether they can handle the output.

Manager W, Cranston Presents F. A-  Wade's Famous Beggar Prince  Opera Company.  On a very large guarantee Mr. Cranston has engaged the above musical  organization for a complete tour of the  British Columbia and Alberta Theatrical Circuit. Greenwood is to have  two nights. On Wednesday, Nov. 9th,  Auber's beautiful romantic opera "Fra  Diavolo" will be presented, and on  Thursday night, Nov. 10th, "La Mas-  cott" or "The Beggar Prince."  , Mr, Wade's company has been a  most successful one for'the past twelve  seasons throughout the central*, and  southern states, and this summer on  their first Canadian tour, they played  to capacity business for three weeks in  the Winnipeg theatre and repeated  their success in Brandon. The personnel of the.company has remained  practically unchanged for the.past five  years, and includes some of the "best  comic opera talent in America. Miss  Iroene Dalmer is the prima donna,  soprano, supported by Addie Mumford  and L-ilian Thorn, Gertrude Hutchen-  son and Winefred Peterson are the  contraltoes, F. W. Walters and Jay  C. Taylor tenors, G. Bryon Bronti and  Carl L-eburg, baritones. The minor  parts are in capable hands and Mr. F.  A. Wade and Jack Spaulding play  comedy parts. Ivan Rudesal is the  musical director.  There is perhaps no class of amusement more entertaining than good  comic opera, for it combines a plot or  story dramatic situations. and sidesplitting corned}', all capped with ex-r  cellent music. And there is no company playing the one night stand  houses more capable than Mr. Wade's  Beggar Prince opera company. Every  heat in the house $1.

Mr. Ross concluded the meeting. He  referred to what he called Mr. Semlin's  half-hearted support of the Conservative party and of his unenviable position in this respect. As to the Dun-  donald incident he instanced a precedent in the case of General Colville of  the British service who had been dismissed for a similar offence. The government had no alternative but to  dismiss the G. O. C. who had violated  his own regulations as he undertook to  show. The speaker referred to better  terms. He referred to the prime minister's promise of readjustment and  thought that enough for the present.  He pointed out Mr. Borden's promise  in that respect, that.it really meant  nothing; it was mere words without  meaning. He concluded with a brief  summary alleging that the present  government deserved a contiuation of  the support hitherto given it and he  believed that the "best government  Ca,nada ever sav would be continued in  power for another term on Nov. 3rd.'  ���Ashcroft Journal.

Alines  ' The three, great properties of the  Montreal and Boston now being hurried into shape, for large shipments are  the Brooklyn, Stemwinder and Rawhide. The Athelstan can now supply  all the ore the smelter can handle of  its character.'^ With, added furnaces  the .output from this, the highest grade  mine'iiiiPli.oehix so far developed, will  be increased. * Ore supply is now sufficiently .guaranteed to warrant the  early blowing, in of another furnace.  In a very short time we expect to see  three furnaces in commission at the  company's smelting plant below town.  The general manager, Mr. Pemberton,  the mine manager, Mr. Collins, and  the smelter manager, Mr. Welch, form  a trio which for.energy, fittedness for  assigned work and devotion to the  concerns of the corporation is hard to  beat. Each man is conscious of his  responsibility and knowing that with  stockholders nothing counts but results, is striving to that end.  The Brooklyn mine is now in good  shape for a steady output of ore. Improvements are completed and everything is in fine condition. The Stem-  winder will also presently begin to  figure prominently in the ore supply.  The mine and plant have been shaped  up and the ore dump is about to be  shipped to the smelter,  The largest operations, however, are  now in progress at the Rawhide, a  property that can easily be made to  yield 600 tons a day in a very short  time. This property unlike the Brooklyn and Stemwinder is a glory hole  proposition. An upraise has been  made from the end of the tunnel to the  mountain of pre above. The ore will  be quarried above, dropped down to the  level and trammed out to the ore bins  novv-in-process of-constructioni--A"Spur-  railway track is being constructed by  the C! P. R. to reach these ore bins!  Cheap mining and cheap shipping will  be a prominent feature of the Rawhide's future.  Without doubt the Montreal and Boston owns a better variety of ores for  economical and profitable smelting  than either of the other great corporations of the Boundary and being on  friendly terms with the management  of bolh, ought to derive out of their  experiences, benefits that will inure  greatly +0 the company. With the  Montreal and New* York end in position to so finance this concern that it  will --be in no way hampered in its  early coreer the future of the Montreal  and Boston is assured. Things at this  end of the line are moving right and  we have no doubt that they are all  along the line.

"Fr& Diavolo" Will be Rendered by  The Beggar Prince Gompany-  The lovers of comic opera will find a  charm in "Fra Diavolo" that is seldom  found in the popular operatic productions of the day. For over forty years  this masterpiece of Auber's has stood  the test. The plot is intense, the  music standard, the comedy good, and  in addition to its tuneful melodies  there are several daintv scenes of an  alluring character. When it is presented in Greenwood on Nov. 9th by  the Beggar Prince opera company it  will be seen in ��� the hands of capable  people. It is well staged, the costumes  are accurate and beautiful and the  whole effects carry the illusion well.  "Fra Diavolo" is the story of a Spanish bandit and the lady loves with  whom he meets on his looting expeditions. There is a dash of the old outlaw  about the character of fiction and G.  Bryon Bronti, the baritone, in the chief  role is an excellent "Diavolo*'. Miss  Irine Palmer, Miss Gertrude H. Utitch-  enson, Addie Mumford, F. A Wade.F.  W. Walters. Taylor.

Arrangements have been completed  for the holding at Calgary in the third  week of March, 1905, a three days'  Horse Fair under the auspices of the  Territorial Horse Breeder's association  and the Dominion and Territorial Departments of Agriculture. The event-  will be thoroughly advertised in eastern Canada, Manitoba .ind the Territories, and not the slightest difficulty  is anticipated in gathering buyers  enough to absorb all the horses entered  for the fair. Over one hundred horses  are already in sight, and every effort  w.ill be made, to have at least three  hundred on the grounds. The object  of the fair is to bring buyer and seller  together and all deals will be made privately in the same manner as at all  the large live stock centres in the  United States. Outside buyers are  generally deterred from purchasing in  the west owing to a lack of knowledge  ofthe country, and the time, trouble  and expense involved in', visiting indi-'  vidual ranchers to make up carloads.  The annual horse fair will solve this  difficulty effectively and is, therefore,  with the support of the breeders,bound  to be a success. *  H*B.K.  Webb's Chocolates, purest  and  best  always fresh at Smith & McRae's.  Coins of the Strait Settlements and  Hong Kong are circulating to some extent in Greenwood and in this district  generally being accepted by merchants  at their face value. It is stated that  they are being sent into the interior  by some sharpers at the coast, who  buy them at S3 cents on the dollar of  their face value and palm them off  on unsuspecting people at full value.  They will not pass current in coast  cities, and banks will not accept them  anywhere. Those who do accept them  at their face value may therefore count  on being loaded up with them. The  chance of loss is increased by taking  the Straits Settlements or Hongkong  20 cent piece for a quarter, as that coin  is intrinsically worth only a little over  10 cents. Several years ago two unscrupulous travellers bought up some  .$5,000_=ipf.,,itheJ_,cqins,J_n Jthe^east^and  unloaded them on the unwary people  in Victoria and Vancouver. They paid  for the silver at that time less than 50  cents on the dollar in gold, and. therefore made a handsome profit by passing them off at par. The coins were a  nuisance to coast merchants for a considerable time. ! If they are allowed to  circulate at par in the interior plenty  of them will be sure to float this way.

With  Many mining flotations that have  had abundant merit have been ruined  in their start by having the initial  stock so placed ihat the least appreciation in ..value; oropportunity to sell,  resulted, in it being- sold at a figure  t'n at spoilt the market and destroyed  confidence. More than one mining-  flotation in British Columbia has thus  suffered. For illustration let it be  supposed that Messrs. A, B, C and D  unite to promote a stock company.  They capitalize at one million shares  of one dollar each, each of the four  men keeping 100,000 shares for. his  interest in the scheme, and putting  600,000 shares in the treasury. They  decide to sell the first one hundred  thousand at 10 cents and so advertise.  A market is developed and the money  obtained through sale of ^ freasury=  shares put into the property which  continues to look well. The four pro-  motors become weary of their enterprise or grow doubtful of. the outcome  and decide to unload their personal  stock-on the market, they as a company  have worlced up. They do so and each  sells his one hundred thousand 'shares  at the' market price of ten cents and  pocketing the ten thousand dollars,  loses all interes*- in the company. The  holders of the stock in small blocks  everywhere are helpless to carry out  the proposition and the market demand  has been met and satisfied not by  the  treasury but by the promoters, and the  enterprise languishes or dies. Or suppose that ;the promoters do not thus  destroy the market directly. Suppose  that they distribute stock at three or  four cents a share in payment of the  property, or seU the first block of one  hundred thousand shares to friends at  that price. They then develop a market, for the stock at ten cents a share.  What generally follows? The holders  of the stock that has cost three cents  immediately proceed to turn it loose  on" the market the company has worked up, at a price sufficiently below the  market to enable them to capture that  market to the detriment of the treas-  ury and to the destruction of the market demand.  A recent impoitant mining flotation  report in the Mining .World embraces  certain Interesting-features which prevent the above. The stock was put  on at par, which was five dollars a  share, three dollars of which was due  and payable at the time of subscription  and *l;e balance subject to call, but  each subscriber, in subscribing for the  stock, bound himself peisonally to pay  the assessments if called. Thus the  original subscriber cannot sell his  stock at an advance to take a profit,  for if he transfers the stock he will  still be liable for assessments. This  scheme is designed to keep out the  nien.wlio want to "scalp" on every  new mining venture that comes well  endorsed. Of course it has to be a  strong proposition that will stand any  such restrictions, but the arrangement  will certainly be effective in keeping  the company's stock off from the.trading market until- the company is well  started.
