The  .dumps of high grade ores are rapidly  increasing and there is now a large  tonnege ready for shipping, Last  week an pastern capitalist visited.the  Providence accompanied by a local  businessman, . The easterner was not  it" all favorably impressed with the  -!propefty. He was accustomed to seeing expensive machinery on the properties in B. C. and operations on an  extensive sc^le and he could not see  how a mine could be an important one  when there were only a few men at  work breaking and sorting ore by  hand,. He considered that the property was merely in an early stage of  development and before it could  amount to anything, it must "have  modern machinery and a large force of  men like the Mother Lode and other  big properties. He took a piece of pre  from the dumps however and went to  Vancouver where he had it assayed.  In a letter to his Greenwood friend he  stated that his opinion regarding the  Providence was somewhat changed.  since the assay showed $486 in all  values; He thought the Providence  good enough, for anybody and would  like very much to get a slice of it.  working the property have considerable ore ready for shipment. W. T.  Smith left for Spokdn^ da Ihltrsday  and it is understood that cKg-otiafions  are in progress for the purchase of. the  property at a large flgaroi  Messrs.

Hallett was  present in the interests of the B.  C.J  Copper company  and J.   P.   McLeod  represented the Miners Un ion.  - Dr., J., Ei.Spankie ?,who in  company  with DKiSshdn* visited the j mine, and  atteiidedtiie   Woatided  was   tne   first  witness.     His   evidence ' Wds  to   the  effect that Richard' Babb's death, was  caused by a weak heart affected by the  shock from the explosion.    The injurie  alone were not sufficient to cause death  neither-would death have occurred in  the absence  of  the  shock. '   Harry  Pascoe, superintendent of the   Mother  Lode mine was,the next "���witneJsa,     He  worked at the Mother Lode for about  18 months.     He  was   superintendent  from May 2nd of this year.     He had  34 years experience  as   a miner,     He  said they went to   work   as   usual   on  "Su^diy~Tn6rnihg"V6~~do~sonfe"blM  in the Mother Lode quarry.   They had  several holes to blast and one hole   to  spring. Babb and his partiner "William  Bartlett proceeded to spring this hole  with 4 sticks of. powder, they had other  holes to blast and they were charged  up and blasted about two  hours after  the first hole was sprung.     The holes  first blasted were sprung the day before.     James Noel then proceeded to  put a fourteen  foot stick in the hole  that was sprug to find out  ii the hole  was clear or not.    Pascoe asked Noel  how the hole   was   and   he   said   "all  right". . Pascoe   then   asked   him  to  charge a hole further up the cut.    He  put 20 sticks of  powder  in   this  hole  which Pascoe told   him   was   enough.  During this time Babb and the shift  boss   were   charging   a   hole    below,  Noel put the stick in the hole that  was  sprung a second time.     Pascoe again  asked him how the hole was   and   he  again replied "all right".       This  precaution was taken to   find   out  if the  hole was warm or not.   Pascoe left  to  charge up other holes.   Noel and Sullivan then went to get some powder and  proceed to charge the hole up.    They  charged the hole np using Benn��tt fuse  and proceeded to do other work. About  9:15 they were ready to blast and blew  the warning  whistle.'    The   men said!  they were all ready and he  told  them  to set lire to the fuse.     Noll was the  first man to fire his hole.   The instant  he set fire  to his fuse  Pascoe ��aw  a  stream of fire and he yelled to the men  to run but before any of them could get  out of the cut the hole went off.   There  was about twelve feet of fuse . in the  hole.   It must have gone  off in leas  then three seconds.   The fuse nsed for  bulldozing went off afterward*.     He  and others who escaped came back to  get the men who were injured.    He  considered it was a bad piece   of  fuse.  j Babb's was on another bench about 30  feet below the hole that went off.     He  didn't notice whether Babb had stumbled or not. He would give as the  cause of accident a bad piece of fuse  the same as might be in any other fuse  He and Mr. Keffer afterwards tested  fuse from the same case and it took 30  seconds to the foot to go off. Noel is  considered a safe ttian. He charged  the hole and set fire to the fuse.  In answer to Mr. Hallett he said, the  hole tftts twelve feet deep. There were  32 sticks of powder in the hole. There  was 3 or 3j�� feet of fuse above the  ground. The fuse was not fired until  about 13 minutes after the hole was  charged. If it was a hot hole it would  have arone off when charging up. ��� He  knew of other instances wliere fuse  went off prematurely,  Thos. Corkih fofentan in the Glory  hole worked at the mine' sinefe September last. He corroborated the evidence  given by Pascoe in reference to the  work done the morning ofthe accident.  James Noel - the next witness  Wofked at the Mother Lode mine for  aboiit Wit months in the glory hole.  Had ' been mining'tof eight or nine  years. He told of going to work Sunday morning as usual, of the springing  of the hole by Richard Babb and his  partner and the shooting of the: .two  holes*, mentioned by Pascoe. He told  of testing the sprung hole to see if it  waswafiti. The stick vvas left in the  hole for 15 or 2(5 minutes, when the  stick was taken out it wad : .Cold.* He  told Pascoe the hole was a 11 right but  he put the stick back again and left it  there for ten minutes, he put the stick  in a third time and left it there about  15 minutes. He gave it to his partiner  Sullivan to show him it was all right.  They then commenced loading the  hole. They put 32 sticks of powder in  the hole, after putting in the powder  they waited ten minutes till Pascoe  was ready. The signal. for blasting  was then given. He split the fue and  laid it carefully from the hole. He  turned around and saw: the collar of  the hole; was-'" on. 'fire. ��� His partner,  yelled look out below! We ran and  just got clear over the embankment  when the report was off. The yell of  of Sullivan was loud enough for Babb  to hear it. . Babb was about 25 feet.be-  low th��m. The hole was 12 feet-deep  and 2'/i feet of this would be taken up  "with powder. After loading a deep  hole he always cleaned everything  away from the collar and did so in this  case. A twelve foot fuse would take G  or 7 minutes to burn. He coulden't  | say how the fire got to the bottom of  the. hole unless it was through bad  fuse".. He just saw the fire, there and  ran. He threw the match with which  he lit the fuse over the embankment.  Will Shortly Quote Freight  and Passenger Rates to  Greenwood.  IS  Stages and F/eteht Wagons to te run  from Curlew to this City.  The only reason he could give for the  accident was abai fuse through which  the fire ran like lightening.  To Mr. McLeod, he said the diameter  of the hole was 4J�� inches. The length  of the testing stick is 14 feet. The  object of springing* the hole is to enlarge the cavity for the powder at the  bottom of the hole. This cavity was  in accordance with the amount of  powder put in to spring the hole.  Four sticks a medium charge was put  in and if there was any heat it would  be around the sides of the cavity.  Mr. Mr. McLeod���A stick might be  down for 40 minutes in a hole of that  kind and be brought up cold.  The "Witness���There would be heat  in the bottom of the hole.  To the Coroner-- Rock could not hold  the heat for an hour and three quarters  not that rock there. They didn't think  it waa necessary to put any water in  the hole. He couldn't say how much  time it would take for heat to pass  away from the rock.  * To Mr. McLeod���A soft pine stick  would show indications of heat if any  there, after being down 15 minutes.  he."    was      satisfied the       hole  was cold. He put no weight  on the fuse to hold it down. It was  not customary to do that with a long  fuse.  To Mr. Hallett���Babbs body was  scarcely touched with dirt. Ke could  see no bruaes on him. There was one  smalt rock on his left leg. His body  was found about 20 feet from where he  was going to light the fuse.  William. Bartlett knew they were preparing to blast, he heard the order to  fire and when he heard the report so  suddenly he ran. He was 60 feet away  when the explosion took place, he  heard Pasce yell and it was then every  "Within 30 days the Great Northern  railway will quote through passenger  and freight rates to and from Greenwood. This important announcement  issemi-officially made. It does not  mean that the railway will reach here  by that time but until the work\of ex-  extending'the line from Curlew to the  metropolis of the Bounndary district is  completed a fast passenger stage and  .freight wagons will be but on between  Curlew and Greenwood; It is expected  that as soon as the line is completed to  Republic work will be commenced from  Curlew northward'. ���'   . ���... ������-,  The Great Northern expect to have  their line completed to Republic this  month and as. soon as this is done  traffic will be commenced giving close  connection at Marcus with the service  on the Spokane Falls and Northern  railway. These trains will of course  pass through Curlew on their way to .  "and from Republic- Curlew is nearly  20 miles distance from Greenwood with  a good wagon: road and an easy grade  all theway. vAistage line, can 'make  the trio from here to to Curlew in less  than three hours, so that passengers  leaving here in the morning will reach  Spokane the same evening, thus saving a day on the- present time. For  points beyond Spokane the same saving is made, ao that the Great Northern expects to secure not only the local  traffic but a big portion, of the through  traffic as well.  The big American company also  intend to quote freight rates that will  induce merchants to patronize their  line. The wagon haul is a drawback,  but then the railwayhas the advantage  of^an^easy-gradealoug-- the--Valley-of -  the Kettle River. The mountains  have been avoided and the natural  route for a railway followed, so that  the difficulties of a wagon haul are not  serious as would at first appear.  *  The most serious mroad into the C.  P. R. business is likely to be- made in  connection with the traffic to the coast.  With the long haul to Revelstoke and  then down the Arrow lakes, the C. P.  R., will be 24 hours behind the Great  Northern to the coast. The only way  this disadvantage could be speedily  overcome, is by the rapid const ruction  of the Midway and Vernon road. In  this way passengers and freight could  leave leave the C. P. R., at Sicamous  and come down over the Shuswap and  Okanagan and the Midway and Vernon  to the Boundary country. The difference in time and distance could be  thus overcome.  In the meantime Greenwood will  enjoy the benefit of railway competition. Doubtless eveu with stages and  freight wagons the business done by  the Great Northern will be sufficiently  large to hasten the construction of the  railway from Curlew to here.

The day for blowing in the furnace has not been definitely announced but it will likely be  eary next week.  Continued on Page S.  NOTICE  Greenwood lodge A. F., & A.

To Foreign Countries.. 2 50  FRIDAY   JUNE   13, Wo:.  WHAT IS WRONG?  "'Nor have I anything "of importance  to say on matters outside our own  statement. Generally speaking, the  past year has been a prosperous one  for Canada, and so far the hand of the  commercial barometer still stands at  ''fair.". The revenues of the country  are large; railway earnings are steadily increasing; farmers are prosperous;  the outlook for lumber is improving  ���and the tide of immigration has set in  with greater volume, ensuring to West-  ��rn Canada, and indeed to the whole  country, more rapid progress, in population and material prosperity. The  natural resources of the country are  being steadily developed; the output of  coalis increasing; and it looks as if we  were on the eve of important results in  the iron and steel industry. There are  indications'also that the recent consolidation of Atlantic steamship lines  by an American syndicate will compel  Canada, in self defence, to take up the  question of a fast Atlantic service, and  ���if we wish to secure immigration, re-  vtain the traffic properly belonging to  . oar own ports, and safeguard the interests of our-commerce, we-must see  that the service both passenger and  freight, is second to none in speed and  equipment. There have been exceptions, and some industries have not  shared in the general prosperity, but  these can in most cases be traced to  undue competition and bad management. Mining in British Columbia is  still highly unsatisfactory and.it may  be some time yet before it recovers  from the collapse of the last two or  three years."  There is nothing particularly new in  the above except from the encouraging  statement of General Manager Clous-  ton at the annual meeting of theshare-  -holdeis of- the Bank.of -Mon treal.--JThe.  heads of practically every financial institution doing a business throughout  Canada have the same story to tell.  In the maritime provinces, in Quebec,  ���Ontario, Manitoba and the Northwest  territories there is nothing but prosperity, but poor British Columbia is  dismissed wilh a few words. "Mining  in British Columbia is still highly unsatisfactory conditions are not hopeful  in British Columbia" etc., etc.  There is a general era of prosperity  A.

Has a neat cosy and clean  ICE CREAM PARLOR  and will blend your Teas to 'suit  you.  but British Columbia the richest and  best province of all does not share in  it. What is the matter ? It is too  late in the day to say that the province  is not possessed of almost illimitable  natural wealth. The truth is that we  have a very bad feputation. Advantage has been taken of the absence of  political stability, of an epidemic .p:f  wild cat speculation and other ills, to  fasten an unwarranted reproach upon  the province. It is useless Quarrelling  with existing* conditions. They must  be faced. We cannot expect outsiders  to put our house in order, we must do  our renovating, and repairing. The  province is rich in mineral, timber and  fish and has areas of land capable of  supporting a large population. But  this does not help the province much  so long as the CloustonS and the other  heads of the big financial concerns  give it a bad report.**���-'   *���-  '*���  The first panacea for the evils that  afflict us is to put an end to the condition of political a narchy that has  prevailed for the last' four years. A  representative of the Toronto Globe  visited British Columbia discussing  the situation says ;  There are no party ties in the legislature of a binding nature, and men  who. in national politics are liberals  and conservative flock together here.in  the legislature and help out each others  schemes. Premier Dunsmuir and his  colleagues are confronted by an Opposition that just about equals the government supporters on such a matter as a  vote of confidence,; and the balance of  power is iti. the "Hands of Mr. Joseph  Martin and a knot of followers, who  constitute a third party. There is thus  reproduced on a minattire scale in the  legislature of British Columbia such an  condition as we often see in the chambers of France and Italy, where the men  in office have to make ali sorts of concessions to little groups of independ-  ,ants in order to retain power*.. In a  province like this, where there is-so  much local feeling in regard to the  policy to be pursued in development,  and where various, industries are concentrated at centres far apart from  each other, it can readily; be understood that a government can do much  either to help or hurt the industry and  commeirce of the~pebpie". It~ is said hy  one of Victoria's most prominent citizens that the hesitation of capital to  come into British Columbia and the  restleness of labor are alike due to the  uncertain attitude of the Dnnsmuir  government toward capital and labor,  and that until the legislature passes  out of the third party stage into one in  which a strong government, no matter  how constituted, nonpartisan, Liberal  or conservative, is confronted by a  united opposition, there.can be no hope  of a return of the prosperity and pro*  gress of four years ago.
