C.  Copper company presented Paul Johnson .the retiring manager of the  smelting department with a beautiful  gold watch and chaia. The gift  waa all the More appreciated because entirely unexpected. Mr. John;  eon,who was.over in the city received  a telephone message that the V. V. &  13. surveyors were at the amelter and  wished to see him. When he reached  there, he found not the surveyors but  all hia old employees assembled in the  furnace room. Geo. B. Paul on behalf of the men made the presentation.  After refreshments were provided  an&all settled down to an afternoon of  Ctijjjjyment, Mr. Johnson made a-feel-  i'nr reply. There was nothing he appreciated more he said than the good  feeling of his '.'boys" as was expressed  in that beautiful preseut. It;showed  that there was a .good understanding  between them and himself. Many of  them; hi\4^ beenV.with' him for years.  In-llftO.) .KattjgB*, California, Nelson  aad: ijtiieHsoMtt'srsoine ~o��: the" ineh" had  ,.#pjr4ed fijr Shim, and they were good  ������0fn:^^^'r9��aoa he had been able to  4 $ Smelting astheap and as good right  here in Greenwood as any place in th e  world was because he had good foremen and good men. Mr. Johnson then  praised the work of those who had  charge of the various departments  under him.  He announced that he had a flattering offer to go and build a smelter on  the South Bast coast of Alaska. If he  accepted the offer and any of the boys  came there, he would do everything he  could for ihem. He again thanked  them for the handsome present and  the men heartily cheered him. When  he concluded short speeches were then  -majJe *��3L-G*��vA'^Bigelow^ and_others^  Mfrjoteionthen invited all his em-  pjpjyes to dinner at the Armstrong  ftbtel on Saturday evening.  ' The dinner was informal but an enjoyable affair. About fifty sat down  as guests of Mr. Johnson. After justice 'ttas don�� to the good thin :s provided by the Armstrong, H. C. Shaw  was voted to the chair and an im  promptu programme was carried out.  Good speeches were made by Messrs.  Johnson, Bigelow, Howe, Kreuger,  Jacobs, Peterson, Moore. Liden, Wil-  bert and others in response to the  various toasts. Songs were sung by  Messrs. Howe, Jacobs, Archer and*  Kreuger.  The toast to Mrs. Johnson too was  enthusiastically honored and the complimentary references to her sterling  worth and popularity in soc'al circles  were heartily applauded. The "bairns"  were not forgotten and they too were  wljhed long life and happiness.  The men appreciated very much Mr.  Johnson's whplesouled hospitality and  the good fellowship which was shown  between Mr. Johnson and his employes  revealed the secret of why there were  no labor trouoles in connection with  tjie Greenwood smelter.  During the evening several references were made to good work done by  Mr. Johnson here. Not only were his  aervices of great value to the city and  district but the province generally.  Smelters were built before his arrival  in the province but they were apparently built to boom townsites and sell  shares. Mr. Johnson was the first  jaan to make a slag dump, in running  a copper furnace and to manufacture  copper matte and he was the first  mam to make a success of thetreat-  inetJt of the low grade ores of the pro-  blister copper in this province and  when manager of the Hall's Mines  smelter at Nelson the shipment of a  train lead of blister copper shipped by  the C. P. R. through Canada created a  sensation in the east and did much to  advertise the mineral resources of this  province. It was an easy thing *o build  a smelter but credit must be given Mr.  Johnson for having been the first to  demonstrate that smelters could be  made successful business ventures in  this province. British Columbia was  known as a mining country for several  years but it was not until Mr. Johnson took hold that any success was  made in treating the low grade ores of  the province.  The. cosmopilitan character of the  dinner was demonstrated by the initial  toasts. The toast to His Majesty  King Edward was enthusiastically received, "the President of the United  States" was drunk with equal fervor  and when Mr. Johnson proposed  "King Oscar of Sweden and Norway"  the toast was received with a tremendous hurrah that nearly lifted the ceiling. His loyal subjects employed at  the smelter did not forget to pay a  tribute' to.His Gracious Majesty although far from home.  IT WAS  A SUCCESS  Mining Convention at Victoria CDncludes its Labors.  Killed at Phoenix.  Commission  to  Settle   the   Fernie  Coal Strike.  One Miner Found Dead and Another  Seriously Injured.  Phfkmx, B. C. March 3rd.���This  morning about 1 o'clock as a shift vvas  coming off at the Knob Hill mine one  man was killed and another seriously,  perhaps fatally, injnred. The dead  man's name is William Watson, and  John Salmon was the one so seriously  mangled that he may not live. The  latter is now being given every attention at the Phoenix general hospital.  It seema ihat when the men on that  shift came out of the- No. I tunnel the  shiftjboss.missed ..the -.t^o^ itientipned,  and search was at once .made for them.  Apparently they had drilled inti a  missed hole, the explosion killing  Watson outright and injuring Salmon.  Watson was a young man of perhaps  22 years, having a father living on a  ranch near republic, while Salmon vvas  some ten years older, and is said to  have been a native of Nova Scotia.  Both had worked at the mines in this  camp for many months and were capable miners and well liked by their  comrades. -  Watson was a member of the local  lodge of the Knights of Pythias, which  order will probably have charge of the  funeral. The district corner, Dr. Geo.  E. Foster of Greenwood, has been notified and^ will at onceJiol_d_an inquest..  Salmon had both eyes shot out by the  blast, had one leg broken and sustained serious contusions about  the  head.  John Salmon, who was fatally injured at the Knob Hili mine by drilling into a missed hole, died at the  Phoenix general hospital.  This makes the second victim oi the  accident. Salmon's partner, William  Watson, having been killed outright.  Dr. Foster, the cornor, held an inquest and after visiting the scene of  the fatality the jury returned a verdict  of death by accident.  Watson's funeral was held Wednesday under the auspices of the Knights  of Pythias, of which he was a member  The Granby mines were closed for the  funeral. Hss father, who lives near  Republic, ou a ranch, arrived last  night and took the remains to that  place. Salmon's funeral' will occur  Friday, and the interment will be at  Greenwood. His uncle, Martin Salmon, of Rossland, arrived before his  nephew passed away.  Both young men were from Nova  Scotia, and both were well thought of  generally, having been employed in  this camp for a number of years.  willing to abide hy whatever the tip-  country members decided. Victoria  vvas unanimously selected.  Cheers were given for Keen and  Hobson, the latter being presenter, informally by a lar^e number of the  delegates wilh a diamond ring Monday- evening.  The Greenwood delegates returned  on Wednesday evening except Mr.  Gaunce who remained over a day in  Seattle. They were all well satisfied  with the result and believe that tlie  convention accomplished much good.  ���MAN  ;R0M BRUCE  Local and Personal.  James McGregor inspector of mines  is in the city.

Every portion of the province was  represented. Nearly 300 delegates  were in attendance. The convention  organized on Wednesday with John  Keen of Kaslo in the chair. It would  be impossible to give an extended  report of the deliberations at the  several sessions of the convention.

Hon. Col. Prior on behalf of government offered to pay expenses of commission.  The convention itself closed at noon  Monday although the executive was  busy until late in the evening settling  a large number of matters aud resolutions passed on to them for consideration.  A motion was passed urging the  government to resist the claim of the  Canadian Pacific railway to the coal  and petroleum lands of Southeast  Kootenay and to open the reserve on  those lands as well a.s those of Graham  island.  Another resolution asked the Dominion government to open up tlieir  50,000 acres reserve of coal lands in the  Crow's Nest pass.

He was also au earnest lodge worker.

All  three Greenwood rinks won, the aggregate winning being 11 points.  R. Gardom, collector of customs at  Midway, takes observations for the;  meteorological office. The records for  the month of February are interesting.  The month opened cold and on the 4th  the thermometer went down to 19!<  below the coldest this winter. After  this the weather moderated until the  9th when the minimum thereroonieter  vvas 30 above. A sudden change came  and on the 10th the mercury went  down to 8 belo-v. This cold snap continued until the 17th after which the  weather was modeiate until the 20th  when another cold snap came with the  theremometer ranging from 2 to i  below.

It was decided to hold the next meeting at Car-  sou next September. The organization consists of men who came into  this country in or before 18'K, and  these reunions of the pioneers are occasions of much good fellowship to the  old-timers. They also look after any  member who may happen to be in  want, and at present "Jolly- Jack"', or  Jack Thornton, who came into the  Boundary 41 years ago, is the only one  so situated. He is living in his cabin  not far from Grernvvood.  : a suitable reply in -which   he  thanked  ,v.-> ;i them for the substantial  expression of  :- ^-iit.._ ...|:gooi:Uyill and", expressed'. .h'iJT'genuine  regret at the leaving the rimny'warm  frieuds he made'in Greenwood.

You'll be pleased.  mith S�� McRae  The editor  of tlie Victoria Colonist  has been won by the blandishments of  that  fair  charmer  Jno.  H. Tonkin of  Fernie.      The   editor   was    presented  with a copy of that wonderful  table of  averages   and   he     immediately     proclaims to the world chat the case looks  its black as thunder  against the  men.  A loss credulous  man   would  have  become  '.suspicious   at   those   strenuous  professions of  virtue.     It is a case of  protesting too much.     When we think  of it,  the  editor of  the Colonist has  lived too long in tlie  Kootenays to believe that miners  strike because they  are being paid too much.     There must  be a reason not   revealed  in  Mr. Tonkin's table of averages.    A man might  work one shift a month  and according  to  Mr.  Tonkin   his  average  for  that  month    might . be    SS.38    per   shift.  Through   manipulation   of   figures   a  strong case  may  be  presented to the  uninitiated  or  to those seeking an excuse to denounce the laboring- men, but  it does   not convince those who know  something  about   the real situation at  Fernie,   nor   the   men   who  have been  unable  to   find  tlie  average  wage of  34.34 in their pockets  notwithstanding-  Mr. Tonkin's fignres.  Since the above was written we have  been furnished with a statement from  ^_thepress committee jvhjch throws a  flood of light on the subject and confirms our statements that Mr. Tonkin's  manipulation of figures does not accurately describe the net earnings of  the men. The statement is too  lengthy to publish in full but below is  sufficient to completely riddle that remarkable table of averages :  To the Editor : In last week's issue  there appeared a ware scale supposed  to have been earned by the employees  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., during the last few months. A more barefaced, deceptive, cunning piece of jugglery with figures it is seldom our privilege to see. After an investigation  or numerous statements we find that  the Coal Co., method of book keeping  is not infallible as a copy of some of  the statements will prove. Again,  through these statements, we lind that  the Coal Co., is not above trying to  buy the officers of our union if they  could, in fact, we consider they have  tried and failed. Now we do not make  statements were arc not prepared to  prove a;-d to do this let us look at the  following list of wages :���  J. liallusky worked 18 shifts, earning S173.20. He had the following  backhands:���  M. Kovalik 27 days (.< S2.50 S67.S0  H. Smith       5    "     "      "   12.00  E. Erison       1    "      "      "       2.50  J.

S60 from S80.85 leaves  $20.85, pay 50 cents for smithing-leaves  S20.35 for 16 shifts, or an average of  $1.27 per shift.���A magnificent sum  for the dangerous occupation of coal  miner.  John Spok worked 9 days in No. 3  mine earning $20.40. $22.50 the company deducted for backhand labor so  for the privilege of working for the  C. N. P. Coal Co., nine days he pyid  them S2.10.

C. .        .  THE RIGHT SPIRIT.  In these days of strife between  Capital and Labor, it is gratifying to  see that a gentleman holding an important position can retire with tho  good opinion of the men employed  under him. The presentation of Paul  Johnson on Saturday was an honest  expression of appreciation of his men.  Because of that good feeling the interests of the company did not suffer  as more ore vvas treated per man at the  Greenwood.smelter~and-at a-lower-cost  than possibly auy other smelter in the  world. This is not intended as a boost  for Paul Johnson because his reputation as a successful smelter man is so  well established that nothing we might  say could make or mar it. The moral  we see in the incident is that it pays  all round to have a proper understanding between employer and employed  and a proper appreciation for each  others rights and interests. Industrial  strife never contributed one dollar to  the profits of either capital or labor.  a mailer of Foresight  II  site  m  i  3KS  REPRESENTING :    ���  The Pho-- i.

STRIKE  IT FERNIE  Mr. Dougherty Believes Difficulties can be Settled.  Manaeer Tonkins Now Ready to Hear  Men's Grievances.  Geo. V. Dougherty president of district No. 6, W. P. of M. returned home  on Thursday after spending- two weeks  at Fernie. He is hopeful tliat the commission appointed will be able to settle  the strike on a permanent basis. He  had several interviews with Mr. Tonkin and also went thoroughly into the  grievances of the men with W. L. Mckenzie King, deputy minister ofMabor.  The conclusion he arrived at was that  if Mr. Tonkin had treated with his  men instead of continually irritating-  them by petty acts, that the trouble  could be averted" The differences between the two sides are not sufficiently  serious to prevent a full aud permanent settlement of the strike. There is  nothing in the men's demands which  Mr. Tonkin could not accept without  loss of dignity or without loss to his  company. The rate of wages is not so  much the matter in dispute but the  fact that the wage scale is inequitable.  Mr. Dougherty succeeded iu inducing Mr. Tonkin to meet a committee  from each of the three local unions  and if they could not agree then a  committee of the district union, but  before the interview could be held Mr.  Tonkin left for the coast. With the  commission ai Fernie and with Mr.  Tonkin open to reason, there is every  assurance that the strike will be  settled.  Mr. Dougherty leaves for Fernia on  Saturday so as to be there when the  commission sits.  The commission  Saturday evening.  by today's train,  there direct from  spent a day  with  meets at Fernie  Mr. Keffer left  Mr. Gaunce goes  Seattle where he  his familv and the  other members of the commission went  to Fernie direct from Victoria.  Bank of Montreal  Mr. Finucane Goes to Spokane as  Acting Manager.  F. J. Finucane returned on Wednesday evening from Spokane. As announced in the Times two weeks ago  the Bank of Montreal will open a  branch in Spokane-aiid-Finucane-will  take charge as acting-manager. In  all probability the appointment will be  made permanent. With his promotion  will come several changes in the local  staff. A. W. Strickland who was accountant here for several years will return from Rossland to take charge of  the Greenwood branch as acting manager. Mr. McRae who has been filling  Mr, Duff's position during thclatter's  absence in Winnipeg will take another  position in the bank's service and Mr.  Duff who has fully recovered will resume his old position here. Who will  comprise Mr. Finucane's staff in  Spokane has not yet been announced.  Just received a fine new line of  trunks, come and see them. A. L.  White 2nd Hand Man.
