Four Persons Killed by Derailment of Coach at
Beaver Canyon
Judge William B. Townsend
Among Those Who Lost.
Their Liyes
Four were killed outright and five
injured, two of whom are Spokane
people, as the result of the derailment
of a buffer sleeper and day coach on
the Spokane Falls and Northern rail
way Saturday afternoon, eight miles
nortli of Waneta, B. C.
The killed:
Judge William Townsend,Rossland,
B. C.
YV. E. Smith, bartender on the
steamer Kasslo, out of Nelson, B. C.
M. D. McKinnon, purser of the
stea.uer Kaslo.
One man, unidentified.
The injured:
Mrs. W. B. Poole, Spokane, left
arm bruised and slight wound behind
the left ear.    Not considered serious,
Clarence Poole, son of Mrs. Poole,
slightly hurt in the baek. Not serious
Mrs. Nellie Wright, Cranbrook, B.
ly., slightly out oi; left cheek.
Charles Simiiiermiui, porter ou the
sleeper, slightly bruised.
Cook on the buffet car, name unknown, slightly injured.
The accident occurred eight miles
nortli of Waneta, 200 feet south of a
bridge at that point. Just as th
train was approaching the bridge the
bullet sleeper, which was the rear car,
left the track. It bumped along over
the ties almost to the bridge and then
suddenly toppled over, falling 40 feet
down a steep embankment, piillin;
with it the day coach, just ahead of
the sleeper. The ilay cuach became
uncoupled from the train ahead, and
the engine and the balance of th *
train remained on the track.
The dead met their fate instantly,
being crushed to death without a
chance txi escape. A much more horrible catastrophe was fortunately escaped by the curs leaving the track
when they did instead of plunging into
Ihe river, only a few feet further on.
Doctors were iniiiie.iiut.il v sent from
Itussland and Noithport to attend the
njured, all of whom were moved to
Nelson with all possible haste. The
engine of the train which suffered the
disaster was ordered to proceed with
the dead and wounded to that city
Ollieials of the Spokane Fulls .V
Northern are at a complete loss to ascribe any cause fur the deriiilinel t of
the sleeper. The .track in the vicinity
of the accident was not at all injured
and the bridge was nut damaged. It
is stated, however, that the probable
cause of the car leaving the track
would be known until Liiin morning,
when an investigation was commenced.
The ear, it is said, was thoroughly
inspected before leaving Spokane and
every precaution taken in the same
way as all trains are examined when
they depart, Had anything been
lound the matter with the car it would
have heen uncoupled and sent to the
shops fur repairs,
William B. Townsend was well

Noted Japanese Mining Man
Last week a man who is one of the
most important mining engineers in
Japan was a visitor in the Boundary
and spent some time inspecting the
mines of the Granby Consolidated, in
company with Supt. Smith. J. Ko-
jima, M. E., is in charge of Ashio
copper mine in the land of the Mikado, a mine that has been worked
some 300 years. Mr. Kojima landed
iu San Francisco in February to spend
six months in ' siting the metallurgical works of ' 'te on the American
continent, am from his own story, he
has seen mot"1 of them than falls to
the lot of most men. First he went
to Arizona and saw the Copper Queen
and other mines, at Bisbee and Globe;
then to Mexico at Cananea; then to
the Mountain Copper Co. in California; then to the gold fields of Colorado; then to Butte and the gigantic
Washoe smelter near there; then to
the Mesaba iron mines in Minnesota,
and to the famous lake copper mines
in Michigan, including the Calumet
und Hecla, Osceola, Tamarack, etc.;
then to see the hydro-electrical works
at Niarara Falls; then to Boston and
New York and to the refining works
of the Nichols Copper Co. at Paterson, N. J.; then to the Baldwin Locomotive Works at Philadelphia, and to
the Carnegie Steel Works at Pitts
burg. Coming west again, Mr. Ko
jima saw the Homestake mine at
Lead, South Dakota; the great properties at Bingham, and Utah mines and
smelters, and the old workings of the
Consolidated Virginia and other mines
at Virginia City, Nevada, not having
time to see Goldfleld, Tonopah or
Manhatan. He then came to the
Boundary to inspect the Granby .smelter and mines, expecting to return to
his native country on July 25th on
the steamer Minnesota from Seattle.
Regarding the mines and works of
which he i.s manager, Mr. Kojima
gave some interesting details of the
enterprise. The mines are located 115
miles from Tokia, in the mountains,
with which there is uo rail connection. His coinpany has about 50
miles uf underground workings, and
fiey have attained a depth uf 2,1)00
feet or 500 feet below water drainage. At the mines are employed
about 3,200 men, with the same number at the concentrating works and
smelter, making over (i,000 men on
the payroll of the corn-era. The
wages are the equivalent of some 80
cents per day in our money, tho cost
of living being extremely low.
The ore from the Ashio mine averages about 14 per cent copper, the
concentrating ore running five to one
At the smelter there are seven furnaces
of 200 tons capacity each daily, le
inly four uf them are in use. TI
company has also built refining works
to handle the output.
For power waterfalls arc used to a
large extent in Japan for industrial
purposes, the steep mountain sides
offering great opportunities for hydro-
electrical development, which are
taken advantage of. Haulage in the
mines is by electric power, and American mining and smelting machinery
is used almost entirely by the opera
'ill's.
Mr. Kojima wus surprised at the
magnitude and economy of operations
at the plant of the Granby company,
and expressed much gratification at
what he witnessed ut the smelter in
this city and the mine* in Phoenix.

THE FIRE FIEND
J. W. Jones' Furniture store
and Two Other Buildings
Destroyed
Loss on Stock and Building
Estimated  at $15,000.
Insured
Fire was discovered about 1:15
o'clock Sunday night in a building
on Riverside street owned by J. W.
Jones. Owing to the late hour the
fire was not discovered until it had
assumed an alarming aspect, and to
save the buildings already afire was
entirely oi)t of the question, and the
fire boys concentrated their energies
toward the buildings directly across
the street and those adjoining the
Yale, all of which were threatened
at times. Fortunately there was
but little wind which undoubtedly
was a good thing for the city in that
it gave the fire boys a better opportunity to fight the flames. Six
building in all were burned, namely
the furniture store, store house and
barn, owned by J. W. Jones, and
three shacks, the property of Ed.
Knapp. Practically all of the furniture in the Jones buildings was destroyed by fire, as well as all of the
household goods. Joseph McDon-
and had some property in one of
the buildings which he never expects to see again. Several other
persons lost more or less of their
wordly goods in the flames.
The efficiency of Fire Chief Savage
in superintending the work of fighting fire is unexelled, and much
credit is due him for his businesslike and effective methods in directing the fire war fare on Sunday
night. That a building in direct
proximity to the gutted furniture
store was saved stands as an example of this fact. The origin of the
lire is not known.
The buildings were valued at
about $3000. As Mr. Jones is away
on a trip to the Similkameen country at present, it iB impossible to ascertain the value of the stock destroyed, lint is estimated to have
been about $12,000, probably move.
Between $10,000 and $11,000 insurance was carried on the stock
and buildings.
Kobt. Petrie, the genial news man
indulged iu a heroic stunt on the
night of the lire and has been slightly out of joint since then. He had
the m'sfoitunc to go down two flights
of stairways all at one time, und is
now strongly convinced that looping the loop is not the only sensational performance to be enjoyed.
Rossland, July 23.—TheCanadian
Consolidated Mining ami Smelting
company of Canada, has declared a
diyidend of 2£ per cent on its capital
stock, payable on August 1st. The
capital is $5,500,000, but there is
about $800,000 still in the treasury.
This is the second quarterly dividend
for the year. The coinpany early in
the year announced that it would pay
quarterly dividends at the rate of 10
per cent per annum.

TUESDAY, JULY 24, 1906
Tuiv newspapers published in villages loc'itoil on branch lines of railways are miking strenuous efforts to
make political capital out of the fact
that the postmaster general (lias not,
up to the present time, seen fit to forward their mail ahead of the arrival
of trains. They appear to have lost
sight of the fact that the postoffice
department has not yet been invested
with thc power to establish railway
schedules. Even a Tory editor should

$1,01)0,000 paid by this company,
Last week a report came from the

You consider
that ,a poorly
printed job costss
just as much as
one that pre-
sentsa neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
bu si ne as d e-
mands the latter kind ?

Good Printing—the kind we tlo—is in  itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship  are of the '
best.    Let us estimate on your order.    We guarantee satisfaction.
Poultry will be exhibited and entered for competition at the Spokane
Interstate fair. This is not the best
time to exhibit birds, but there has
been many demands made upon the
management to give poultry raisers
an opportunity to make a showing.
It is expected there will be from M)
to 600 birds displayed. Premiums
will consist of $3 fur first and $2 for
second on pens of each variety; $1.50
for lirst, 61 for second on cock, cock-
eral, hen and pullet. A pell will consist of four females and one male. Entries will close Saturday, September
22, at 12 o'clock noon.
No Satisfaction in Eating
Food docs you no good. You can't
jest—consequently you are afraid
to cat. Tongue is coated, mouth
tastes bad, stomach i.s bloated. Pretty soon you,11 lie overcome by weakness and nervous prostration.
Best prescription for vour condition
is Dr. Hamilton's Pills of Mandrake
and Butternut. For dyspepsia and
indigestion it is doubtful if a better
remedy will evor be devised. I'hes**
pills bring new strength und vitality
to the stomach and digestive organs;
they build up the general health and
instill such vim and resisting power
into the system that sickness is hupos-
