INSTANT DEATH
Joseph Moyland,  Brakeman
at Gramby Smelter, Terribly Mangled
Coroner's Jury Return a Verdict of Accidental Death
After Long Session
An accident by which Michael
Moylan, a brakeman on one of the
slag trains, met instant death, occurred at the Granby smelter at a
few minutes to 12 o'clock last Sunday night.
No one witnessed the fatality, and
it is therefore impossible to give a
lucid description of how it happened. It appears that the slag
train on which Moylan wns employed was standing on a curve just
outside the smeller. The engim er
occupied a seat on the engine on the
outside of the curve, and his view
over the train was therefore cut off.
He states that he thought he saw
Moylan jump on the from part of
engine, and then disappear from
view. He supposed that he had
boarded the train all right. Tbat
was the last time he saw him alive.
On starting the train, the engineer
says he thought he heard a short,
sharp cry, and instinctively divining
that something was wrong, the
train was stoppeed before the engine
had run its own length. The dam
age had already been done, However, as Moylan's lifeless and
mangled body wns found under the
wheels of the train. The body had
been terribly mutilated by the train,
the bead being cut open, deep gashes
cut in otber portions of the body,
and various limbs broken. The remains were at once removed to
Cooper's undertaking parlors, whence
thc funeral was held.
Monday afternoon Coroner King-
sum enipanneled the following jury:
N. L. Midlines, foreman; Jas. Mc-
Aidle, H. A. Sheads, M. D. White,
A. K. Smith, mul lCd Davis. Afler
viewing the remains, and listening
to evidence up to 11 o'clock that
night, ibi' jury returned a verdict
that the unfortunate workmen met
death us ihe result of an accident.
As a rider to this verdict, a recommendation wns added that in future the Granby oompany keep its
yards ns free ns possible from refuse
material and other obstructions in
order to futthor safeguard the limb
and life uf its employees,
Moylnn wns a young' man, between .'Kl mul 81 yearsold. He was a
relative of Miles Barrett, the general
fiiii'iiiiiii uf tiie smelter, the two haying married sisters. He wns n recent arrival in the city. A widow
nml two children survive him to
mourn his luss. The funeral,
which wns held from the family residence nt 9:30 this morning, wns
postponed until today in order
to allow one of the brothers of declared to reach the city Innn Kansas
City. A large number of citizens and
fellow workmen attended the last sad
rites nnd followed the remains to
their last resting place.
A Runaway
Geo. Taylor had another spurt of
speedy traveling Inst Saturday morning, bis horses concluding thnt they
were able to set their own pnee nnd
to give an exhibition as guideless
wonders. They had not traveled
far before the tongue of the sleigh
broke, nnd on crossing the Winnipeg
avenue bridge the conveyance and
Iriver ciurie very close lu being
ditched two or three times. The rig
was stopped a short distance on the
other side of the C.P.R. trucks in
Columbia. Mr. Taylor was thrown,
and received a severe shaking up
and a slightly bruised face.

11 is reported from Victoria that
between fourteen and eighteen men
wi I be employed immediately by the
department of horticulture iu inspecting orchards throughout the province,
a vigorous orchard cleansing campaign having been instituted by Mr.
Thomas Cunningham, provincial inspector oi fruit pests, who is supervising the work.
Regarding orchard cleansing, each
owner is furnished with an ofiioial
notice dealing wilh the work and also
a bulletin describing all sprays and
"'hen to use them. Later the party
is handed a certificate showing the
number of trees inspected und giving
the nuniher of the inspector.
The notice issued by Mr. Cunningham, which will be of interest tu fruit
growers throughout the province, is
as follows:
Karlv in the spring uf 1907 it was
decided that a concerted effort
should be made to have the orchards
and gardens, where fruit trees and ornamentals arc grown, cleansed from
insect pests and fungoid disease which
have become very prevalent un Vancouver Island, the islands adjacent
thereto and the lower mainland,
A number of experienced men were
engaged tu inspect trees and give instructions as tn the proper methods tu
be used. Spraying bullelins were
issued and placed iu the hands uf the
owners ur lessees uf such pruperty,and
official notices were served that by a
specific date the infected trees, shrubs
or bushes, as the case might be, must
be thoroughly sprayed ur prosecution
would follow.
Unfortunately at that timo there
was a scarcity of spray pumps, owing
chiefly to the congested state of the
railways.  Freight that hud been three
months iu transit had nut yet reached
its destination, so that it wns practi*
j rally impossible fur persons whose in
ti'iitiiins were otherwise good, to carry
out the spirit uf the notice. There was
also at lhat time a great scarcity of
available labor, These coneideratlons
have been carefully weighed, and will
explain why there has besn delay in
the enforcement of the terms nf the
said notice.
The circumstances today are entirely
different. Spray pumps aud materials
may be hud nt short notice, and then-
is abundance uf labor available, mi
that there is nu longer an excuse for
delaying the immediate treatment of
infected und diseasi d trees.
Orgauized inspection has already
begun, nud expert advice us tu the
proper remedies tu Im used is being
given; official notices ure again being
served on the parties in possession of
infected trees, hushes and plants, nnd
a ready compliance with the forms uf
such notice will he insisted un.
The reproach uf permitting the existence of diseased and infected fruit
| trees in this fair province, which has
already attained tu the highest standard, should tie rolled oway. The regulations governing the importation uf
nursery stuck, trees, plants and fruit
are faithfully enforced. No diseased
or infected trees, plants or fruit is
permitted to enter this province. The
enforcement of these valuable regulations involved the condemnation nf
over 50,000 trees and 8000 packages
of infected fruit for the season ending
May 30th, 1907, and in a like propor-

FEIDAV, MARCH (i, 19118
As an indication of the value to be
placed upon Conservative opinions, it
is interesting tn note that, upon the
discussion iu the Dominion parliament
of Mr. Oliver's resolution granting
land tu South Asrican veterans resident in Saskatchewan, Alberta and
Manitoba, the Conservatives contended that the lands of the new provinces
belonged to the Dominion, nnd therefore those veterans residents in other
provinces who had already received
recognition from thc government of
the province in which they reside,
should also receive a slice of this land.
When one recalls how strenuously the
opposition contended during the passing of the autonomy bills that these
lands belonged to the provinces and
were being wrongfully retained by the
Dominion government, it is, to say
the least, amusing. Mr. Borden's
"platform nf platitudes" also contains
a plank culling fur the "restoration nf
the public lands tn Alberta and Sas
katchewanupon fair terms." If Mr.
Borden was right when pasting the
autonomy bills with respect to Untitle of these lands, then he is wrong
now. If he is light now, then he wns
wrung then—you take oour choice.
If the government followed Mr. Borden's suggestion o£ last «esk* and divided thousands uf acres nf these lunds
among veterans who hnd ulreudy received a grunt nf land, and do this
upon this upon tho presumption thut
the government owns the land, how
would Mr.Borden proceed to "restore"
the lunds tu the new provinces') This
is a dilemma in which the leader nf
the opposition bus placed himself, and
it is abuut un u pur with other inconsistent Ideas advocated liy the remnants uf u great party which lie leads.
The city council could adopt no
better method of beautifying tbe
city at small cost than be offering
lirst, second and third prizes for the
prettiest and best kept Lawns. This
scheme has been tried with great
success in other cities. It has been
found to act as a wonderful stim-
tilous in the maintenance of band-
some yards by the citizens; and
a pretty residential section gains a
repuation uf beauty for a city quicker than anything else. The plan is
worth trying. Tbe prizes should he
sufficiently large to make the competition for them keen.
RANDOM REMARKS
This is a queer civilization.   It is
a terribly wicked thing for a strung,
healthy man to wurk a few hours on
the Sabbath; but if the frail and
sickly housewife dues nut put in the

dinner, we immediately raise a howl
of discontent.
This is the season uf the year when
the athlete duns his sweater, of gaudy
colors, walks about the city in his

The Circus Trust
As bright and fresh ns a spring
morning, coining direct from its triumphant engagement of over four
weeks in tne city of San Francisco,
the greatly enlarged, newly equipp d
oolossal Greater Norris it  Rowe c r-
i •
cus, museum, menagerie, Hippodrome and congress of nations will
exhibit here this spring. By arrangement with the powers that be ol'liiel
big circus combine, and made oper* .
ative this seiiBon, each of the oir-
cuses to the agreement will have a
certain territory. The l'nrntiin &
Bailey circus hns been given the
New England states; tl.e Forepaugh-
Sells circus has been withdrawn
from the Held entirely; the Riugling
Bros, will make tbe middle West
and Southern states, and the Greater
Norris & Rowe circus has been given
the entire territory west of the
Rockies. Hy tbis arrangement but
one of the big cureuses of the country will visit nny given territory any
one year. In this way much will be
saved which will be put into the excellence of the programs of the several big circuses. The Greater Norris it Rowe circus has lieen enlarged
to such an extent that it is now on a
par, as fnr as equipment and paraphernalia nre concerned, with any
of the other circuses in this big combine. This is Hindu so for the reason that each of the circuses will alternate the territory, und will be
seen only once in three years in any
particular section of the country.
Tne Greater Norris & Rowe circus
secured and absorbed nil of the animals in the Chutes in .Sun Francisco.
Tnis was the greatest purchase of
animals by any one concern ever
consummated in this country. The
performers engaged are mostly of
European reputation. There is hilt
one agent in Europe securing tbe
big acts lor all of the shows of the
combine, and each of the big circuses ure supplied with their sensational features from the suine source.

MINING MATTERS
Thn directors o! tho Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Company, Ltd., at a meeting in
Now York last Tuetrtay, voted not
to declare thc quarterly dividend on
the company's stock. In September
of last year the company declared a
quarterly dividend of 2 per cent and
an extra dividend of 1 per cent.
Lome A. Campbell, general manager of the South Kootenay Power
company, was interviewed in Vancouver a few days since. He said:
"The average output of the Rossland mines recently has been about
(iOOO tons a week, or a little higher
production than at any time during
the past four years. Extensive development in all the big mines is in
progress, and vast ore reserves have
been blocked out. A steady increase in the output can be expected.
It looks as   though   the   treatment
capacity of the smelters will have to
lie increased in order eo keep pace
with tho camp. The Centre Star
group has over seventeen miles of
drifts exclusive of shafts and stupes.
The power plant of the South Kootenay Power coinpany supplies power
to the mines and smelters within a
radius of over fifty miles. We have
23,000 horsepower of generators and
water wheels in actual operation,
and have also developed for 10,0(10
additional horsepower. When the
mines and smelters of the Boundary
are working full blast our company
supplies them with 8000 horsepower
of electrical energy. The requirements of the mines at Rossland and
the smelter at Trail amount to about
8U00 horsepower. A new customer
will be the Canadian zinc smelter at
Nelson. The plant is now being
built." Mr. Campbell adds that
there were no new developments in
connection witb the proposed elec

A cablegram from London announces that tho Lo i(oi No. 2 has
declared a dividend of two shillings
a share. The cablegram also states
that a report has been issued to the
shareholders, which revealed that
the affairs of the company are in a
flourishing condition. The Le Roi
No. 2 mine is in firt-elass shape,
and the development during the past
year has been of 11 very satisfactory
character. It promises to yield good
returns for a good many years to
come.
A Toronto dispatch reports Mr. E,
L. Englehart, chairman of the T. & N.
O. ruilwuy commission, as saying that
he understands that shipments of low
grade Cobalt ore are likely to be sent,
to British Columbia smelters, Theob

ure nf this province, a necessary process, and one which would probably
result advantageously to the smelters
