Sometime before six o'clock on  Sunday afternoon Christopher B.  Martin and Kingsley G. Smith;  fell 25 feet with a ledge in S tope  No. 61 on the 300 foot level of  tbe Granby mine and were crush-  ed to death under the falling rock.  Smith was 48 years, of age but  unmirried while Martin, aged 40  years, had been married only six  months. The verdict of the Coroners jury which was engage*! for  two days investigating the circumstances of the accident was  that death was caused by accidentally falling a distance of about  25 feet from a bench to the muck  below.  "*  i ...  This section of the mine is not  timbered wbut -according to the  evidence given by James McGregor, of Nelson, provincial mine inspector, it was considered as safe  as if it had been timbered". The  inspector's last .visit to the- mine,  previous to to.accident was7 about  March 1st. He had examined it  again after the accident.: r  < Steve Swanson, foreman of the  mi��e,had examined this bench os  Friday last and had fouti- it in  food shape. Charles Nelson,  mucker bes8,:gay.ej similiar tvir  dence.  The bodies of- the men were  found and,uncovered by William  Tntham, shift boss. Smith's body  was fotan* from/10 to 15 feet  away from that of his comrade.  Tatham had considered the place  perfectly safe He had not examined it on Sunday but no one had  complained of it, ner had he had  any report 8f���its being in any unsafe condition.  Gustave D.Larsen. bar-man,  gave evidence that seemed to indicate peculiar conditions. With  Murdock Campbell,he had received orders from the shift boss to  bulldoze some rocks in the chute  below the bench. He had not  gone back there because he con-  sidered it unsafe. The rock, had  been stuffing down there for the  last three weeks. It was his duty  to examine all such places nut he  hadn't reported the thing to the  shift boss. He had'nt made spee-  iai examination .of the pi ace. as  he hadn't had time. He had intended to mention this place to  the shift boss but didn't see him.  Tne piece that sluffed off causing  the fatality was from seven to  eight feet in width.  MurdOck Cnmpbell also said  .that ihere was leose rock hanging under the ledge oa Sunday  afternoon but his evidence with  .that of Larsen's was disputed bv  *Henrv Heidman, shift boss. On  Saturday he had. examined tbe  arch between the pillars under  the ledge and had found it in good  condition, .    '._'  The coroner's jury was composed of W.B. Willcox (foreman),  J. L. Marti-", Andrew Johnson,  Murdock Mclntyre, J. A. Tremb-  lay and" C. H. Flood. Coroner  A. S. Black was in charge, J. P.  McLeod represented Mrs Martin,  and D. Whiteside represented the  Granby Company.  At one o'clock on Wednesday  afternoon a joint funeral was held  the services being in the care of  Rev.   John   Leech-Porter.     Mr.  Canadian. Mining Institute���Western  Branch  .

J  v     A Daring Editor  The following reference to the  Editor oi the Ledge will beapprc-  ciated\by all his friends. We  know he is quite too modest to  publish it himself. It is part of  a lengthy-eulogy appearing in a  recent issue of the Armstrong  Advertiser which Mr. Lowery  visited while attending the convention at Vernon: "He like the  majority of printers has had his  ups and downs, has; made good  money but sunk it all in mining  ventures and mining has become  second nature with him, the lure  of the mining camp is too strong  a_d he now talks of going to  Findlay River. R. T. Lowery  has a personality peculiarly-his  own; he explains it by saying  that high altitudes at times appear to affect him and it is then  that those who do not give a  square deal learn that there is _  fearless critic of their actions ; he  is above all a true Westerner and  can give expression to Western  ideas as very few of our newspaper writers can."  KETTLE VALLEY  Fruit Lands Co. Undertake  Extensive Developments-  Directors Leavef or England  Mr. Temple Godman and Lt.  Col. W. H. N. Glossop, of-London, England, directors of the  Kettle Valley Irrigated Fruit  Lands Co. left yesterday for  England after having spent a  week examing the properties of  the company near Rock Creek.  Mr. G.--W. Godman and Mr. M.  C. Wright, brother of W. O.  Wright, have also been in town  for a couple of days, the latter  visiting his brother.  The company Jbave decided to  undertake the construction of a  flume, and l trestlei 1,400 >et in  length in connection with their  main irrigation canal.

Wire us for Quotations  POLITICAL.  The Liberals of kootenay hold  their nominating convention at  Nelson, on Thursday, June 4th.  A Dangerous Road  Our attention has been called  to the fact that the road between  Eholt and the North Fork is in a  dangerous conditon. This road  which is little better than a trail  and at places so dangerous that  people will not use it. covers a  distance of over eleven miles  while with very little expense a  road could be made from Eholt .'o  the North Fork, which would, be  only four miles and a. half in  length. It is, of course, not reasonable to insist that every such  piece of work as this should have  long ago received the attention  of the provincial government but  it is hoped that it will bo given  fair con&idera tion. The suggestion is made in the friendliest  spirit. The change would be  greatly appreciated by the people  of both Eholt and the Fork.  Conservative delegates to the  convention at Vernon are willing  to talk about anything but the  convention. They had a good  timewith Judge Williams. All  the delegates returded on Monr  day with the exception of W. B,  Fleming, who is .taking a few  day's holidays-visiting his old  friends there.      '  W. A. Galliher, M.P. for Kootenay, is reported to have accepted  the billet of Western Solicitor  and legislative agent of the G.T.  P., with headquarters at Vancouver.  A CONSULTATION   MEETING  Monday evening's session of the  City Council was, what might be  called a consultation meeting. Present, Mayor Banting, Aldermen  Gulley, Sutherland, Wilson and  Mortimer.  The Council first had a little talk  with the tenant of the City Farm  who explained the work the had  been doing and why he had not  done certain work. The Council  asked him to have tbe necessary  work done by July 1st.  A letter from J. D. Spence re  claim of Fritz Haussener for compensation for damage done to a colt  of Mr. Haussener's which had been  injured in a fence at the City Farm  was read. The letter was referred  to the City Solicitor for reply.  The following'acconnts were ordered paid:  K.   McKenzie:  $88 80  " ���...:     16 25  B.

The work already done had cost  $578. Sidewalks east from Government street to the Presbyterian  church, south from Greenwood  street on the east side of Government and the Gold street bridge  were considered but finafly the  whole choice of work was left to  the Committee with instructions to  first complete all necessary  repairs  4  William Rowe, iormerly super  indeut of tbe Skylark, left yesterday for the North   Fork   of   the  Kettle River  to   take   over   the  management of the  Little   Ber-      UU!=    c  tha minej   The Little Bertha  is { Why ?  in the control of  Dr. W, H. Ap-      _  pleton, Donald McLean and John  F. Wilkstrom,   of   Spokane, aud  these men have been making extensive arrangements for its development ever siace they took it  over/about three months ago.  The Little Bertha claim covers  126 acres and on it there are eight  leads all of which carry very high  values. A gasoline hoist has recently been installed and is now  in operation. Last week Dr. Ap-  pleton visited the property and  arrangements have been made to  lay out the site site for a new ten  stamp mill which is to be erected  immediately oa the property,  The company have a'cquired a 10-  stamp Nisson mill for ; this purpose.  The.Xittle Berthn is a mine for  which a- great deM; hTls^lwen  claimed and under the efficient  management of Mr. Rowe, it can  ba expected to do everything  that is claimed for it. ;  Dominion CoppeT Co.  The Boston Commercial in its  last issue has some reference to  Dominion Copper. It is only necessary to point out that the whole  report is rumor and that although  some time ago, copper companies  everywhere were in difficulties because of the general money -stringency, Dominion Copper has been  meeting all its liabilities regularly  and the latest reports to those who  should know, were that the Company had plenty of money on hand.  The company has, of course,  wished to improve its position financially and for that purpose Mr.  H. H. Melville went io Europe" to  make an attempt at interesting new  capital'. W. C. Thomas, the manager of the company has been in  Spokane for a few days and will  not return until Monday next. On  the face of it even, the report  does not look very good because  under present conditions it would  not be to the advantage of the bond  holders to take this action. The  Commercial say8:  "Dominion Copper is said to be  badly in need of raouay. It is"  claimed that the $400,000 which  the company had in its treasury a  year ago was used to buy new properties, to purchase mining equipment and reconstruct and enlarge  its smelter.

Spence returned last night  from Spokane where he was engaged in an examinatien of a former manager of the celebrated  Tretheway mine at Cobalt, Ont.  A claim for $4,000 damages has  boea entered against tha mine by  a witow of one of the employees  and this examination was preparatory to the hearing of tha case  which takes place this month either ati Toronto or North Bay.  A provisional order has been issued directing the sale of the  Elkhorn mine. If na exception is  taken to th�� order before the 15th  inst.,an order for the sale of the  mine will be issued and the property disposed of. The order was  given J. D. Spence, acting on a  judgment ot the Canadian Bank  of Commerce. The order does not  touch either the Elkhorn fraction  or the E.H. Mineral claim.  There will be a meeting of the  Kettle Valley Fish and Game  Protection Association at the  City Hall on Monday night at 8  o'clock. All members are earn-  tly requested to attend.

MAV 1. 1908  more spectacular than the inflow.  It causes alarm in tbe minds of  many because it is the same sort  of movement that accomplished  so much in the development of  the United States. The West  in changing- localities was largely  built up by settlers from the Eaar,  this latter term also being a movable one. Because of the knowledge of this splendid citizenship  which is being lost Americans  regret the restless search for new  lands.is carrying the pioneers  across the boundary into Canada.  Ia Ontario, the commitments  for drunkenness last year number  4,774, the largest number since  1888. The Canadian Courier  thinks this and similiar facts suf-  ficent to war* the people of Canada to stop insisting that the  authorities at Ottawa rush in  new citizens. Now that British  Columbia's immigration question  is settling itself as a result of  Sir Wilfrid Lauder's wise and  tactful policy the immigration  problem as applied to non-Asiatic  nationalities is creating interest.  In Toronto, the Italians have  been settling for years in oae of  the oldest sections of the city,'  St. John's Ward,familiarly known  as the Ward. L*��st week, an Italian scrivener, who can turn out  pretty good English claimed in a  letter to the Toronto Globe that  large numbers of Italians in that  city had taken out their naturalization papers, tiad entered and  were constantly entering the militia aad that they had accumulated from three to four million  dollar's worth of property in Toronto. They demand, according  to Mr. Gilonna the same wage-  as the English laborer.  If this is true, it is a matter, for  congratulation. The making ot a  good industrious citizen from the  too well favored son of sunny Italy is something worth doing.  Perhaps alter a while, we can  Set him to wash "his face and  clean his kitchen floor but these  things the Italians of Toronto  still abhor.  The announcement comes from  Ottawa that the Civil Service.  will be put aider a permiueat  commission that shall be independent of politics. . Details of the  arrangement are not yet to hand  but the change is one that means  a courageous and most commend-  adle departure from a very strongly intrenched principle in politics  that has outlived its usefulness.  Again the Laurier government  proves itself able to swing the  guns fearlessly against the citadels that have become an encumbrance rather than a defence to  the state.  The rush of American Betilere  into the fertile fields of the Northwest is attracting attention in  Chicago.   The Tribune says of it:  "Many farmers are crossing  the line of the United States in-:  to the western provinces of Canada. The movement ha�� attracted  widespread attention. It has  been encouraged by systematic  work of publicity and promotion.  Tha boomer has used all sorts of  advertising devices to emphasize  the advantages of the new country. That his services have  been effective is undoubted.  "The outflow.of  population is  Apparently a reporter iu 'Winnipeg was fortunate with Mr.  Ross for he is credited with the  following interview, concerning  Major Hodgin's statements:  Mr. .Ross was also asked regarding- the charges made by Major  Hodgins in connection with the  construction of the national trans-  contin��ntal railway.  "I have had an opportunity to  look into the question," he said,  "andil any investigation beheld  it will only go   to -prove   Major  Hodgins' incompetence as a district engineer.    The great desideratum is to get the railway built.  I! Major Hodgins had   continued  as district engineer,issuing orders  and making classifications, while  absolutely ignorant of   the   conditions in   his  own   division, no  progress could have beea   made.  There is nothing unusal in a man  who has proved a failure   to    attempt to fasten responsibility for  such failure on some one else.   If  Major Hodgins had accepted   the  advice of some of his best friends  he would not have called   attention to his own iucompetency,but  since he is evidently   determintd  to make trouble he should be given every .possible opportunity   to  demonstrate that, while he   may  be a good military man, as a district engineer in connection  with  the construction of the   national  transcontinental railway he proved himself an absolute failure."  The Saturday Sunset publishes  a large story about the V.V. &E.  and the connection of Duncan  Ross, M.P., a/sd Senator Temple-  man with it. The Editor of that  paper evidently thinks he has  "something big" on. Only by  dint of weeks of perserverance  did he secure the facts He is sure  they are facts but where they appear in his article is not evident.  We are sorry that we cannot ascribe   decent    reasonable  judg-  After making complimentary  reference to the candidates of  both parties in Yale-Cariboo, the  Nelson Daily News has the following to say of the methods employed by the.Province and others  in regard to Mr.Ross' nomination.  The sentiments it contains will  And a responsive echo everywhere  in the riding.    It says:  In this connection we feel impelled to comment somewhat severely on the course pursued bv a  section of the tor^ press in regard  to the Liberal nomination convention-that tendered Mr. Duncan  Ross an unanimous renominat-  iou on Tuesday, April 14. The  Vancouver Province resorted to  the -most despicable tactics in  sending up to the convention a  representative instructed to send  in a report of the proceedings  that would place Mr. .Duncan  Ross, in the event of his being  renominated,in the most unfavorable light possible. This representative did not attend.the convention, neither was be present  at the public meeting held in the  evening. He arrived in Vernon  late on Tuesday evening and the  following morning set about preparing a report in accordance with  his instruction. Oneof the delegates to the convention, Mr..  Sidley, of Anarchist Mountain,  was known to have a grievance  and to be personally opposed to  Mr. Ross''nomination because of  that grievance. - The Province  man learned of this and immediately hunted up Mr. Sidley, got  his story, and upon it based his  report calculated to   deceive  the  public and create the impression  that the convention was inharmonious and that Mr, Duncan  Ross had not the confidence of  the Liberal party.  The, Province story was whol Iv  misleading and in a very large  measure false. Yet this story has  been reproduced iu practically  every tory newspaper in the province, with flaring headlines, ia-  timating that the Liberals of  Yale-Cariboo were divided aud  that Duncan Ross had not their  confidence.  The fact that Mr. Sidley bad a  grievance ia "not denied, but his  grievance was not of such a charter as to reflect upon Mr. Ross as  the member for Yale-Cariboo, or  upon the policy of the Laurier  administration. Mr. Sidley's  grievance arose from the fact  that the V. V. & E. Ry. does tot  Tun through his ranch at the  point that he desired. Mr. Sidley  ignores the fact that Duncan  Ross' fight in the railway committee, in which he encountered  the bitter opposition of the solid  conservative party, " secured the  construction of the railway, one  result of which was to enable Mr.  Sidlev to sell out at a big figure,  and persists in holding Mr. Ross  responsible for the fact that the  right-of-way of tbe railroad did  not traverse his ranch just where  he desired. The mere statement  of Mr.. Sidley's grievance will  suffice to show its utter worthless-  ness as a cause for the political  extinction of Mr. Ross. Yet this  personal grievance of a single individual is magnified and twisted  into an evidence of lack of confidence in Mr. Ross and of division  in the ranks ot* the Liberals of  Yale-Cariboo. As a matter-of  fact this cowardlv attempt to injure Mr. Duncan Ross will h^ive  the effect of strengthening hi'n  with his constituents The* L'h-  eral convention was largely a trended and every man present knows  how entirely harmonious the proceedings were and what a splendid reception Mr. Ross received  and they will fo a man resent the  publication in the tory press of  utterly false accounts thereof.  However, there is a larger view  of this case than its purely local  effect.    The  tory  press   is  just  now busily engaged   calling out  for purity in  politics   and   this  case presents one of the   grossest  instances of impurity in   politics  that could be conceived of.   It ev-  er a public man men with an  uu-  qualified expression of public con  fidence that   was   Duncan  Ross'  experience at the Vernon  nominating convention.    He   was   entitled, even from his political opr  ppnents, to credit for this.    Pub-  he life in Canada has   very . few  rewards and public men are  subjected to so much abuse and misrepresentation, that when in unmistakable manner   and   with a  quite spontaneous enthusiasm  a  great constitueucv like Yale-Cariboo goes on record as   being   entirely satisfied with   the   parlia  mentary conduct of its representative, the press of the country,  regaidless of party affiliations^  should be fair and honest enough  to report the facts, if it make any  ���pretense at all of, covering .the  situation in its news co'umns, .

Silvester Home,   at   Stafford,  England.    Mr, Horiie said that he w__  perfectly certain th it Jesus Christ had  in view all'great ultimate social   changes of which he   never   spoke.   There  was no single recorded saying- of Jems  "that this man's roof needed   mending  and that man's cottage  needed   d:ain  ing."   He never said that the sweated  workmau wa�� to get more   wages, and  He never even said that the serf was to  be^'free man. Therefore,said si me one  He was indifferent.    Not at all ! There  was one thing, and only one thing.that  could give man all those things,   and  a thousand more'besides,namely, there-  { generation of the spiritof man to love  '. his neighbor as himself.    If they got  that there wouid be tio difficulty about  the amelioration of the conditions   of  life in this or any other  country.    He  sure that that if they really could   get  hold of that principle  it   would   solve  many a difficulty upon   the part   of so  many people who today were standing  aloof from Christ and Christianity   altogether.  The pith and marrow of His  teaching was "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and H"�� righteousness, and  all things shall.be added   unto  you "I  They would be added, for the greatest  thing in  the   world was love, and if it  was not, then Christianity was an imposture.   If the greatest thing   in   the  world was love, and if they, desired   to  give of the^greatest of. all. things   to  their fellows, did they worider that the  Lord Hi mself had said;'Give for thine  alms those   things that   are   within."  Christianity   had  suffered in so many  things but he thought it   had  suffered  from  nothing more than   false   bopss  and false  expectations.    There  were  some people who camp to.him  and explained that they quarrelled -with the'  Bible because it was not the latest text  book on science. There were some peo  pie who said that the astronomy of the  Bible was obselete, and, that therefore  they had no further use for it.    Some  I people expected to find the'New Testa  ment a handbook on'political economy  K Jesus Christ could   only   tell   t|iem  how to change half sovereigns into sov-  eigns there would" be business i,i it, j,,  conclusion the preacher said  the   sup-  reme^eeds of Knglaud were not legislative     He did not  underrate tlie  easily for social chaugta,   but   he  certain that first   and /.foremost   there  was a neceskity  for spiritual   reform.  They   wanted   better men,   better citizens, larger hear ted,' .'broader-minded,  high-toned men and women;who would  give their love, thought and sympathy  and, above all, their faitn to the ape in  which they lived.  nec-  was  WORTH  TAKING     "  m^^^^^^^^^^^  Do Vou thints  For Yoifie'seif ?
