A. fatal accident occurred in the  Nickel Plate mine about midnight on  .Tuly 12th when ,a workman named  ���������John liadick was killc-d by an explosion of dynamite when he'was engaged in bull-dozing rocks in what is  known as the* "long chute."  No one was ".with him when it happened anil therefore1.'nothing definite  can or will be known els to what caused the explosion, that caused his death.  6 The deceased who is believed to have  been an Austrian 'had been working in  the .mine for about two months'. Most  of that -time'.'he was mucking until-'on  assuring the shift boss that lie understood the handling Of powder ho was  at'.his own request permitted to attend to bull-dozing of rocks in the  "long chute.' One man named William Pope held worked with him for  four shifts, andwas .assisting him on  the shift when the''accident took place  but had gone home a few minutes before completion of the shift, leaving  the deceased theie who said that he.  was going back into the chute before  going home,  The first known "eif the accident,"  (and it was: by the merest chance that  anyone knew of it at the time) was  when a miner named Kelly who was  working with a partner in another  drift in that vicinity had gone for a  bucket of water and in going for it  had to pass the mouth eif the? "long  chute." A blast went off, the force of  which knocked hi in clown the embankment and brought a shower of  rocks around him,one of them hitting  the water bucket he was carrying.  After the blast he heard a man shout  in tlie chute in which the explosion  took place and soon after the shout  two more blasts went oil' in close siic  cession. Going back into the drift  -Jveliy-*told -bis-* p.-irtner^cd'-.tlra circiusi���������  .stance and -is it occurred to both of  them that something serious might  have happened in the "long chute"'  they went in and found deceased lying  on his back.

BEATS "DUBIOUS   EL  ENCE"  That Is Why Borden's Manly Sincerity  Evokes'General Applause in  England      '���������' ,  Mr.  (Xews-Aelvertiscr.)  Borden's  idea of-'Canadian au  tonomy on the niattel-.of defence is  not a divided and loCal navy, but a  representative1, and unjpod control of  the single .and imperial navy. This  note struck clearly at"the Premier's  .great institute has ciaught the ear. and  delighted. the,liea11 of the gre'a t' Brit-  tish audience* t<>- which Air. Borden  spoke through the pi o'ss. If the applause which follows '[his re.markable  ���������deliveranee; is lnen-ei genei-ed .-than Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was ev-Vrable te> evoke,  it is not because Mr. Borden has greater eloquence. In thel* -qualities' that  'charm.- an audieiie;c,' appeal to the  sentiments unci emotions and touch  the.imagination the advantage is with  the late premier. Mr. Borden has the  advantage in bis message which goes  right to  the heart eif' -the.'matter, 'and  '���������":���������*���������"'���������  leaves it as clear as is possible at this  stage where tlie gover'iinent and the  Dominion stand. The British people,  including the press, dei' not like, ambiguity. They applaud an outspoken man  who knows .whathe. -iivieuns to do and  approve "the brave old wisdom of sincerity." The simple V manly dignity  and strength of Mr. Borden's speech is  worthmore than much dubious eloquence. '..���������'. ���������;,.'.  JOINT TRACK DOWN  COQUIHALLA  V. V. & E. and K. V.

He was breathing when they first picked him up but  never spoke and was dead before, they  reached the office.  The remains were brought to Hedley on Saturday morning when constable Sproule took charge of them  and notified Dr. McEwen who in turn  sent for Dr. ��������� McCaffrey of Princeton  to act as coroner in any inquiry which  might be deemed necessary as he himself was debarred from acting under  the circumstances. *  THE   INQUEST  On the arrival of the coroner from  Princeton a. jury was empanelled consisting of T.1.L Rothcrhain, Otto Johnson. V. Saunders, Jas. Fisher, Win.  Knight and J. Critchley with T. II.  Rotherhaiii as foreman.  After viewing the body the inquest  was begun and four witnesses were  examined. The evidence given testified to flic: intelligence anil canelor of  the witnesses anel seemed above* the  average in these respects over what, is  generally heard in courts anel 011 public ine-uirios.

Win. Pope, the first witness, told of  how he had worked at the bull-dozing  AVi111 dee!i.'.-ise*el but not being a powder  man was nimble to judge whetlmr he  was epialified for the; work. He was  told by deceased about .11.1."> that he,  would not be required any further on  that shift but that deceased was going  bark into the chute and witness went  home. 'Deceased had taken the supply  of powder for the shift into the chute  himself.  D. Kelly  told of passing  the mouth  of the  chute   on  the way after   the  bucket of water and being knocked  down the muck pile by the concussion  and by a rock hitting bis bucket. He  had heard a man shout in the chute  after the first explosion but no further  shout was heard after the second and  third blasts which went in quick succession. He told of reporting the  matter to partner and both going to  see: also of their action in carrying  deceased to the office. His partner's  evidence was in corroboration with  the additional information in reply to  a. question from a juryman that the  chute lacked about -lo to 5 feet of being full and deceased would have had  no difficulty in getting out of it in  getting away from a blast.  AV. .Sampson, mine,* foreman was requested to give evidence and explained  that deceased went on shift at four  o'clock in the afternoon anel would be  coming off at one.

C. Gil-  man, assistant to the president of the  Gi.-ea t 'l"-vq^*'%M*h;'.,S^up^  D. Scott and Division Superintendent  J. M. Doyle, arrived at this station  last Friday evening, and Saturday  morning Mr. Giliuan and Mr. Doyle  went to Penticton in an automobile.  The  object of tlie  trip  is  a sealed  book to   the general   public, but  from  the fact that the railroad officials have  suddenly  taken  so  much   interest  in  Penticton  naturally  leads to the suspicion   that the  Great Northern contemplates   extending a.   branch,   the  branch that was surveyed two en- three  years ago,   from Oroville.   northward,  at an early clay. Every indication lends  strength to this supposition.     The announcement  was made in British Columbia  only a  few   weeks  ago  by no  less an  authority than Louis ,\V. Hill,  at  that  time  president  of  the  road,  that it  was the  intention of the company  tei build north   from Oroville  to  Penticton. and this visit by other high  officials  so soon   after  Mr. Hill's   declaration is only corroborative evidence  that the  Great Northen-n   has a  covetous  eye  on   the   northern   field.      It  would be   no surprise  to the people oi'  this place if work on the north branch  would begin even   before the laying of  steel   on the south   branch,   although,  truth lei  say, it might   In* a surprise* if  the Great Northern would actually do  anything in   the wav of  road building  Lowery in the Greenwood Ledge offered the following eleieiuent tribute to  the memory and the worth of the late  I**.

We niourn . his departure deeper, perhaps, because of its abruptness.  ���������'He was'''popular with all elas-ses of  people, and to hi*? close friends he was  known a.v Plinkcy, a name that was  jocularly given to him during his college days. He* was mentally and physically 'strong, but behind his forceful  and combative nafuie there was a  geniality, a calm and graceful charm  of manner that smoothed the rough  places and often eliminated discord  from many an inharmonious event.

Canada, may wedl be  proud to claim him as a. son. He stood  upon a higher mental plane than most  of those, around' him. and this fact  alone must at times have tinged his  life with monotony.  ���������'His death has cast a deep shadow  over the spirits of the people and the  very air seems to be laden with sadness.

It  will be many a. day before- the name of  Plinkey Warren fades from the memory of those now living in this community.

James Stewart was laid up for repairs in the'hospital last week but expects to he out in a few days.  G. H. Whiteman, has arrived in  Princeton from England accompanied,  by his bride, and is receiving the congratulations of Princeton friends.  The smoke laden air which became  in evidence on Monday and increased  on Tuesday would indicate that destructive fires are burning at some part  of the district. '  .,., . A meeting to make arrangements  for celebration of Labor Day will be  held on Friday evening. If a celebration is to be held there is nothing  like getting at it good and early.  Rciv. Mr. MacKenzie, the new pastor in charge of the Methodist missions at Keremeos mid Hedley occupied the pulpit in -Hedley on Sunday  evening last'and preached acceptably  to a, good congregation.,  Miss Faulcls, formerly matron of the  Hedley hospital but now occupying a  similar position in Princeton, drove  down on Saturday with Dr. McCaffrey  who came to hold the inquest on the  man who was killed in the mine.

He is at present  with the diamond drill crew.  The Nelson News in Monday's issue  gives a very good write-up of Camp  Hedley. The information hears the  mark of having heen obtained at first  hand and the writer of the article appeal's to have understood the subject  lie was writing about.  Mr. J. H. Jackson of Coalmont is  - making satisfactory recovery from his  auto accident and meanwhile the auto  is making the trip regularly between  Coalmont and Merritt enabling passengers to get through to Vancouver  from either Princeton or Coalmont in  a day. '  A. fair sized contingent of Hedley  Orangemen drove to Princeton on Friday last to help celebrate the anniversary of the Boyne and the glorious,  pious and immortal memory of King  Billy. The day was fine and various  centres in the valley were well represented in the gathering.

The wordy warfare  may terminate in  the submission   of the question to The  Hague   Tribunal.    A   series   If   diplomatic: and  lcgishitive   conferences  today developed the fact that the forces  in the!  American  Government which  favor allowing  American  ships    free  passage through the canal  are in control.    These forces say  that  there is  nothing in the Hay-Pauncel'ote treaty  on which   tlie canal  was built to prevent this concession.     The diplomatic  struggle, precipitated   by the note   received from Mite-hell  Innes, charge of  the  British  Embassy,   will be fought  out strongly.
