be favorable.

burned. His injuries arc quite serious,
but not necessarily dangerous.
Webster Marchbiinks, Mr. Ritchie's
helper, had his hand and hip badly
burned. '
Harry Lutley, the shift boss, was
slightly burned on the wrist, but is
able to be at his post again this niorn-
*>*
llichard Mullen was burned on the
foot by the hot metal, inflicting a
painful wound.
The cause of the accident is stated
to have been a desire on the part of
some of the men to rush their work.
There is a big steel plate goes over the
settler. This had been left off. Had
it been put on before Mr. llitche
commenced to 'repair the wator jack
ets, tho accident could not have Imp
pened. The dropping of the cold
tubing in the hot metal acted the
same as if a charge of dynamite hud
been thrown in the settler, the explo
tion being instantaneous, with the re
suit stated above.
The most disastrous accident that
has ever taken place at the Granby
smelter occurred at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Furnace No. 1 had
"frozen" up, and James Ritchie, a
pipefitter, was standing over the
matte receiver repairing a water
jacket. The shift boss, Harry Lutley,
culled to him to hurry with the work.
Mr. Ritchie evidently became confused, and in his endeavor to comply
with the order of the shift boss he
dropped a 30-inch pipe, filled witl
cold water, into settler, which was
filled with molten matte. A tremendous explosion instantly followed, and
Ritchie was hurled from the plank on
which he was standing into the pit
beside the receiver. Mr. Ritche was
literally covered with matte. His'
eyes, ears and tongue were either
burned out or 'torn off by the explosion, and his entire face wus one mass
of lacerated flesh. Even his most in-
. timate friends were unuble to recognize him. When the shift boss took
took him by the arms and endeavored
to 'pull him out of the pit the tlesli
pealed off his arms. His agony was
so great that he begged his fellow-
workmen to throw him iu the matte
receiver. He was taken to the Cot-
tugo hospital, where every possible
medical assistance wus rendered him,
but ul'ter lingering in terrible agony
for nearly nine hours, he died at 10:45
last night.
Mr. Ritchie was an old smelterman,
having been employed at the Granby
for four or five years. Previous to
that time he was employed at the
Hall [Mines smelter in   NelSon.     lie
c ioticed to work at that reduction
works when they opened operations,
Last year he left this city for tho
coast, but about Ifour months ago he
returned and once more entered tllio
employ of the Granby company. The
unfortunate man leaves a wife and
three young sons to mourn his death.
The other workmen more or less
seriously injured by the explosion
wero:
Miles Barrett, general foreman of
the Granby smelter, badly burned on
bis riglit side and arm, and also on
his neck, back and knee and legs.
The wound on the arm is quite serious, the finger nails on the right baud
being torn off. He was immediately
removed to the hospital, and every
possible medical aid is being shown

ho appeared before a rplended audience last evening, is one of the few
who can do this successfully. He is

Arrangements have been completed
by the Spokane Falls k Northern
Railway company for the operation
of an additional summer train between
Spokane and Marcus, and it is likely
that the ollieials at St. Paul will sanction the plan either this or the coining week, says the Spoketnan Review.
The train will be made up of a combination baggage, mail and express
cur and two or three day coaches,
one of them equipped with u smoker.
As figured out now it is believed the
train will leave Spokane at 4:25
o'clock in the afternoon, arriving at
Marcus shortly after 8 o'clock. It
will leave Marcus between fl and 7
o'clock in the morning, arriving ut
Spokane between 10 and 11 o'clock.
The new train is to become effective
Sunday, June 3, when the new card
on the Great Northern railway will
be put into operation.
From all reports, general business
in Greenwood is believed to be iu
better condition than in any time
for the last lour years.
Owing to the rush of orders, True-
man, the Vancouver photographer,

REAL ESFATE TRANSFERS
0, A. Pettijohn's ranch, located
one mile this side of Lynch creek, on
the North Fork of Kettle river, was
sold this week hy A. Erskine Smith
k Co. to a syndicate of local business
men. Tiie property consists of 320
acres, nearly all of it being suitable
for fruit ruising or agricultural purposes.
Robert Pribilsky, of the City
Barber shop, this week purchased the
lot on which Geo. Massie's tailor shop
and Win. Dinsmore's shoe shop aro
located, and also a lot on the corner
of Main and First streets, from Louis
Schcfele. The consideration wus
$1500.
Frank Rowel!, u smelter employee,
this week purchased Chas. McAllister's cottage in the West end, the
deal being transacted by A. Erskine
Smith iS Co.
Vancouvkh, B. C, May 15. —
After a desperate fight, the mounted
police and posse last night captured
the three bandits who are alleged to
have been up and robbed the Canadian Pacific Imperial Limited train
near Kamloops, B. C, on the night
of Muy 8. The men made a miscalculation and did nut get the baggage
car when they cut the train in two,
and they secured only a small
amount, some of the letters taken
from the car were found on the men
and will be incriminating evidence.
They overlooked §40,000 in the
mail car.
The capture took place near Quilchena. One- man who gives the
name of Dunn was shot in the leg.
The lair .of the bandits was about (JO
miles southwest of Kamloops. The
posse was led by Constable Fernie
of tho mounted police. The prisoners were taken to Kamloops today
and will be arraigned.
With this arrest it is claimed that
"Hill" Miner, one of the most notorious outlaws in the northwest, has
been captured. He is alleged to
have been the leader, lie has a
price on his bead, and the full reward growing out of the capture
amounts to 820,000.
Tomorrow the bandits will be
brought before a magistrate for preliminary hearing. They will probably be remanded, as one of the
younger robbers, who says bis name
i.s Dunn, wus shot in the thigh, and
it will be several days belor he wiil
be ■•ble to stand in bis place and
answer to the charge of holding up
the train.
The old man of the trio is undoubtedly Hill Miner, notorious as a
highwayman and train robber, and
with a price on his head larger than
probably any other man on the Pacific coast. Detective Seavey, head
of the Thiol Detective agi ncy at
Seattle, is certain this man i.s .Miner.
He gives the name of George Edwards, while the youngest of all says
bis name is Calhoun. These two
have   little   to   say, but   Dunn   wis
very nervous when having his
wound dressed by a Burgeon and
early this morning. I-Io said it was
a pity licit hr was not killed outright, and did nut deny ns the others
attempted lo do, that they had held
up the train.
Miner has been living in Aspen
Grove mining eamp for the past two
years. Occasionally he has boon
absent for a month or so, and apparently went to this mining eamp
alter the holdup of the Canadian
Pacific train a year and a half ago
near Mission.
Miner is wanted in San Francisco,
as well as for a holdup on the O. R.
i& X. about a year ago. There will
be a reward of something like $20,-
ooo coming to somebody,
The robbers were fully armed
with automatic revolvers, and in
their pockets were found several
letters stolen from the express car.
They opened fire when the ollicers
came up, and it was in this light
that Dunn was hurt. TRUEMAN

The glory and satisfaction of beau-

President Hendry added that construction work will proceed as rapidly as possible after the arrival of
the rails.
Other officers of the company
seen with regard to the route said
the line would rim from Cloverdale
