The  situation, certainly looks conclusive  that when the shot went off Koskie  was cranking the machine protected  to a certain extent behind the upright  bar, and if Hanson was " tending  chock" on the right hand side of the  drill, which would be the natural place  for him," he would be directly in front  of the missed hole and  would  get the  MANAGER ROSS AT PHOENIX.

D. Whitney of  California/was installed as superintendent and Mr.   Co.lyer of Phoenix as  foreman.    About two weeks later Mr.  and Mrs. Russell went to  the Coast.  Last Friday Mi*.  Whitney left .here,  and the force in the mine was reduced  to half a dozen men.   Mr. Wynne and  family   of Hedley   registered at the  Golden  Gate   Hotel here   on  Friday,  and later went up to the Stemwinder.  It is reported  that  Mr.  Wynne  will  spend a month or six   weeks   at   the  mine, make assays of the ore in  the  different ledges and at various depths  and give a full report.   At present Mr.  Lee" and Mr. Col ye r are at the  mine,  one shift of half a dozen  miners are  working in the shaft and a few men on  the surface are getting the stamp-mill  and cyanide plant into working order.  The command  to make this great reduction in  in the force when the prospects of the mine were never brighter  came to the miners and outsiders like  a bolt from the blue.   Lust year such  an order would not have caused  the  same surprise, for there were, then  in  the district and even in the Stemwinder  camp   many   doubting Thomases.  Mr. Russell after spending two -weeks  at  the   Coast   started   for   England.  Some of the miners on their way out  stated  that   they  expected  to  be at  work here again in two months.  been working on the Nickel Plate for  about three weeks.  'As both men were killed out right,  nothing will ever be known as to what  really happened or who is accountable  for the fatal mistake.   .  Tlie .cause  of death is of course apparent, and circumstances are sufficiently plain to permit reasonably  safe  conjecture as to how it occurred,  although it can never go beyond conjecture.   The men  were side-stoping,  and were aboutto break through into  another chamber.   The stope in which  they were working was a large one,  possibly 60 feet or more in diameter in  the direction of the fatal shot.   At the  farther Side of this chamber is a deep  depression which  is really  the  commencement of an incline winze, and in  this,  two men,  Oley Bergason and J  Breden, were laying track ;   but fortunately for them they were a little to  one side, of the line of the shot and  were also'low enough down for it to  pass over their heads.    Nevertheless,  the concussion must have been a severe  shock to'them, and the wonder is that  their ; heading   was .not  ,destroyed.  Their lights were put out and Breden's  candle-stick wis knocked out of his |  hand.    Breden started to find his way  out in the-darkness as best he could to  get a light,  but Bergason managed to  retain his candle and relight it,  when,  he saw what he  took to be. one man  lying in the bottom of ,therdepression,  but was,in reality two, for both were,  blown this distance and were lying one  on topjqf the other.    He shut oil'  the  air wliich was escaping and immediately went out to notify Mr. Jones,  the superintendent,  who.was on the  scene in a very'few minutes and began  gathering up the*remains; for Hanson  had been badly mangled.  The. first to come to his aid were G.  McEachern, electrician, and W. Henderson, both of whom thought when  they raised Koskie that there were  some signs of life remaining in him,  but when they got him out of the  mine he wius dead. Dr. Whillans had  been phoned for as soon as the accident took place and got there shortly  after..  The accident took place about three  o'clock and the hole that the men were  drilling was  possibly the las't of the  round.    It was at the bottom of the  stope face, or about 8 inches above the  floor and was almost horizontal,  having only enough incline to carry water.  It had been started about 10 inches or  so to the left of the missed hole and  pointing  towards  it at an angle of 30  degrees.    The steel was still sticking  in the hole that they were drilling and  as the missed hole was too  strong to  break, it acted like a cannon and blew  out leaving only a deep boot-leg.    The  machine  was  lying about in  several  pieces;   the bar was standing firm in  front, but the arm had moved, and the  clamp on the bar was broken.    In   the  face were seen  several deep boot-legs  left from the previous round, although  some of the boot-legs had been drilled  into and used on  this round���������a most  dangerous thing to do.   This was what  the   scene of the accident presented  when viewed by the jury at the inquest, and was as it appeared when  the smoke and dust had cleared away,  for it had not been touched.  A strange, feature about it is  that  one of the victims, Hanson, had drilled  count for his mangled condition, in  comparison with Koskie whose injuries  were less terrible.  '      ��������� TUB    INQUEST. '        ;  Shortly after the accident,'Mr. Jones  had the coroner notified, aud demanded an inquest. Dr. McEwen, coroner,  came up the. same evening from Keremeos- and on Thursday morning a jury  was chosen as follows : J. J. McDonald,  Steve Mangott, Dan McEachern, Geo.  Walker, J.W. Murphy and R. Godfrey.  On being duly sworn in, they chose R.  Godfrey for foreman, and were taken  by the coroner to view the remains  and also the scene of the accident. As  two material witnesses had gone down  to Hedley. it was decided to hold the  inquest down there.  On re-assembling at the company's  mess the coroner proceeded with the  inquiry.  The first witness called on was Oley  Bergason, who,'on being sworn, said  that he was working on track, 30 to 50  feet, away, when he heard the explosion  but didn't know where it was. The  lights went out. On re-lighting candle  he, saw remains of the men and went  out and reported.      -.   ��������� ���������    c .  Dr. Whillans, sworn, said that he  had been called for an' accident and  found two men dead from effects of a  dynamite explosion. Koskie had a  fracture of the skull; one arm was  broken, and right side of chest was  riddled with small rock. -Hanson was  almost completely mangled. He.be-,  lieved both to have been killed instantly.  J. Breden, sworn, said he was work-  ing in the Nickel Plate when the accident took place about 3 p. m. on the  11th. The explosion. -had knocked  candlestick out of his. hand aiid he  went for a light. On returning he  met Bergeson who said that the men  were killed. He went and told the  superintendent. He saw the men  afterwards and recognized them to be  Koskie and Hanson.  G. McEachern, sworn, said he was  working in the motor house near the  tunnel when the blacksmith .helper  came in ami said there had heen, an  explosion in the mine, He thought  it was about 3:30. He started in and  met Mr. Jones and went to where the  bodies were lying at the bottom of  muck pile. Hanson was so badly torn  that there was no possibility of life in  him. Koskie seemed to show signs of  life when they started to carry him  out, but when out all signs of life seemed to disappear. He went with Mr.  Jones to where they had been drilling,  and saw that they had drilled into a  missed hole.  B. Guest, shift boss, sworn, said he.  was down at the Sunnysides when the  accident happened. Hanson and Johnson had put in the former round of  holes about ten days before. It was  customary when a shift was following  to report all missed holes to him. In  this ease no missed hole had heen reported to him by former shift. He  had been in to see them at ten o'clock  and asked them if they would blast at  noon. He had seen the place where  the accident had taken place and believed it was caused by drilling into a  missed hole. When, a missed hole is  discovered the rule is to blast it at  once. Sometimes miner take a chance  and do not. It is the duty of every  miner to examine face   carefully for  (Phoenix Pioneer.)  Frank A. Ross,' general manager of  the Daly Reduction Co., Ltd,, owners  of the Nickel Plate, the. most prominent mine in the Similkameen distiict,  at Hedley, was a visitor in Phoenix  last Monday and Tuesday, accompanied by G. P. Jones-, the, company's  superintendent. They were on a little  trip to some of the other mining .properties iu southeastern British Columbia, inspecting the systems of mining  in vogue in other camps, having arrived here from Rossland.  Through the courtesy of O. B. Smith  Jr., Mr. Ross and Mr. Jones were  shown through the Granby mines,  which both had heard much of but  which neither laid previously visited.  Mr. Ross afterwards stated- that the  system em ployed at the Nickel Plate  mine was* much the same as that in  use at the Granby mines���������only at the  Granby the plans were on about 30-  times as great a scale as at the Nickel  Plate. .  Mr. Ross has been manager at the  Nickel Plate mine and mill for about a  year and a half, and has hardly been  away from there in that time. He says  that things are moving along smoothly there, but the Nickel Plate is the  only shipping mine in that district,  and is, as well, about the only one at  present in operation iu the Similkameen. The mine is about two miles  from the mill, the latter being located  at the town of Hedley, at the mouth  of Twenty-mile cieek. The nearly 100  men employed live mostly at the mine,  up the steep mountain side, and the  millmen live in Hedley.  The concentrates from the -10-starnp  mill are hauled by teams to Keremeos,  some 20 miles distant, whence they are  shipped by rail to the smelter at the  coast. As the Great Northern now has  construction gangs stretched all the  way from Keremeos to Hedley, it is  but a matter of a few months till all  wagon hauling is done away with for  Hedley.  One thing occasions delay in operations at the Hedley mill sometimes,   "  and that is lack of power,  which is  generated  by water.     In   dry   times  there.is no option but to cease work  entirely. -Mr. Ross was a little afraid  that he might have to close down any  time  now   on   this   account   till   the  spring .thaw sets in, but hoped it would  not be necessary.   .; ,  1 .Mr, Ross is a mining engineer of   *  many, years'   experience,    extending  from Alaska to Mexico, and made the  interesting, statement that the Nickel  Plate has the only, gold stamp mill of  importance now in operation for 1,500  milesin .every  direction���������Homestake  in the east,, Utah, Colorado and California oil the south, and Treadwell on ,  the north.   There are scores  of idle  mills nearer than the places men tinned,  but difficulty of recovery and increasing cost of operation had closed them  all, in,thejast few. years, some of them  being magnificently equipped, too.  Speaking of the Nickel Plate, Mr.  Ross greatly deprecated the exaggerated stories recently sent out broadcast  from Grand Forks, in which, among  other things, the ore was given a value  of.$80 per ton. Such was not tlie  case, nor anything like it.  himself before beginning to drill. He  believed that deceased had intended to  blast that night. He did not notice  that they were hurried and thought  they had ample time to get ready for  blasting without undue hurry.  This concluded the inquiry, and  after some deliberation the jury returned the following verdict:  "We the following jury empanneled  to enquire into the death of John Koskie . and Munson Hanson return tho  following verdict:��������� ' That deceased  came to their death by accidentally  drilling into a missed hole containing  dynamite at the Nickel Plate mine on  March 11th, 1908.'  R.Godfrey (foreman), J. W. Murphy,  D.'McEachern, Geo. Walker,  S. Mangott, J. J. McDonald."  Muns. Hanson was well liked by his  fellow miners, many of whom had  known himfor years. There were reports concerning Koskie's residence  at Loomis that were unfavorable to  him, but the old maxim which forbids  "speaking ill of the dead" makes it desirable .to withhold mention of what  Continued on Page Four.  >~ihi ������������������iL*ift!HltIgg*lt!yill'*l',?y"  Iii bn������dl)>unuc������iaca'  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MARCH 19,; 1908.  and  \ Similkameen Advertiser.

W. Northey which he  has been pleased to give the  lieading "A Refutation," but  when the thing is sifted down  it will be .seen that "perturbation" oi* any other "'ation" of  similar length would have suited equally as well; for he had  nothing but the product of his  own imagination to refute and  he has refuted nothing.  Mr. Northey has indicted the  Gazette in the following words:  '*Y'iu peremptorily place the blame  for tlie murder of the Roman Catholic  priest ;it Denver. Colorado, on the  socialist papers, more especially the  Appeal t<> Reason."  Now what the Gazette said was  "Tlu- fiendish cold-blooded murder, of  'the Roman Catholic priest in Denver  who was killed at the altar by a man  to whom he was administering the  communion, is aii evidence of the  length to which anarchism'- will go.  The man who did that devilish deed  was probably at one time no worse  than many other young men who-are  to-day drifting into the same groove  by listening to the inane rant of the  average modern day socialist and who  confines iiis reading to such publications as the Appeal to Reason and  and others of that class."  Tlie man who will formulate  definitely such a charge as Mr.  Northey bas done, out of tlie  two sentences above quoted, is  badly in need of a little drilling  in the elementary principles of  logic, as well as sadly lacking in  the spirit of fairness which  would scorn to distort or misre-  reprcsent others. From the  ground taken in those two sentences the Gazette  went   on   to  to a piece of veriest 'humbug.  Authors on socialism who cull  from his 'Crown of Wild Olives'  that illustration of the ������������������crag-  barons" and "bag-barons" and.  claim him as one of themselves,  show how-little they can appreciate or /understand "him. Modern day authors on socialism  get sale for their books through  the hatred and discontent fostered for them and by them.  The doctrines they-seek to advance are alleged to be for the  good of'humanity, but turn over  the fly-leaf and you will invariably find that, the capitalistic  wrong of copy-righting has been  religiously attended to, arid by  virtue of this attention on their  part,' they are on a fair way. to  entry into that capitalistic class  against whom all their invective is '-being poured out.  No,  the public do not want  definitions  of  socialism.    They  prefer to learn of it -by-/watching'  the ad vocates (>f  socialis m and  instituting   comparisons   between precept''and-example. Ye  are "epistles known arid read of  all men" was a condition of service long   ago   enjoined   by   a  great teacher upon the  followers of the faith he .--..taught,  and  so inexorable a law was it  that  no cult can escape it.   When"-we  look about,  therefore,  and  see  those who call themselves socialists and who have  the  boldness to try to thrust their' views  upon others, out-Heroding Herod in their assumption of roles  that they are loudest in denouncing, we are not exactly in the  mood  to   attach much   importance to  high-sounding  definitions of socialism. .   This 'is   a  practical age with no time for  the nebulous or ethereal.   ��������� The  everyday  problems  that" have  to do with bread and butter and  the means   for   procuring   the  same are more to the point, and  to  solve    these  on.   lines   that  will respect the  rights  of our  fellow-man and secure the maximum of good without injustice  to others, will be  sufficient for  us.    These   are   the   standards  upon which we must judge the  doctrines taught and  the deeds  done or sought  to  be done by  bur socialist neighbors.  Now we are not without data  as to how socialists would govern if they had the chance. The  outcome of socialist domination  of the London county council  which the people turned down  was one example ; the civic government of San Francisco with  its saturnalia of fraud and graft,  the exposure of which landed  the socialist ex-nmyor in jail,  was another that Mr.'Northey  evidently forgot about when he  issued his bold challenge. But  to conic nearer home, what  kind of legislation do we find  our socialist friend's in  the  lej>'-  res of good land for the; small sum of;  $3.60 per year of   real   property   fax.  Under the new Assessment Act an ar-j  bitrary valuation of $600 is placed  oil.!-,  his holding, and of this, $500 is exempt j  from taxation  leaving   only   $100  on '  which he is to pay a tax   of   one   per  cent and 40% off if he pays before June j  30th, leaving only 60 cents for- him   to  pay in taxes.     There is $3.00 a   year  thrown away and yet-the Act was intended as a great revenue producer."  "Nit is this the  most objectionable  feature qf the working of this part of  the Act. Look at the inequality.   Take  the case of two   pie-emptors   who   in  ISOStook up their holdings side by side.  One carried out tlie,letter and spirit of  the Land Act and in   live   years  had  done improvements on his land at the  rate of $2.50 per   acre   and   paid   the  purchase, price of $1.00 per acre and in  1903 obtained  his crown  grant.    The  other did nothing,  and   paid  nothing  on his land except the $3.00 taxes each  year to hold it down.    In   1901   he   is  rewarded for the course  he has pursued hy having his taxes reduced to 60  cents per year, and his thrifty -neighbor- gets no   exemption;   but   on   the  other hand has his taxes-raised because  of the increased value  he has given to  his land.    Theone is punished for being progressive, the  .other   rewarded  for being a   drone. ;���������', Such 'anomalies  make finer long   for   Henry  -.George's  single tax.    And if these clauses were  forced into the'new assessment act by  the socialists, as .it  has  been /charged  they-were,-then, the-industrious progressive tax-payer in British Columbia  will   not   long   for a socialist government in this province."

He had just completed bhe hauling in of the Golden  Zone stamp mill, and wound up the  contract in an elegant snow storm up  on the hill.  '  J.

The railway construction work in progicss on Brushy  Bottom has forced traffic by the new  route and this was getting cut up.  An impromptu dance was held in  the old school house on Tuesday night  by way of celebrating St. Patrick's  Day.. It was a home affair for those  who did not wish to take in the trip to  Keremeos. and not meant to interfere  with it.  Jas. McGregor, inspector of mines,  paid Hedley a visit. He .came in on  Sunday and went up to the mine on  Monday to make his official inspection  and report to the .mines department  concerning the lamentable .-accident of  last week.  Hans Simonson, nephew of the late  Munson Hanson, arrived on Saturday  night from Black Bear, Idaho, and  will take charge of the estate of the  deceased iu behalf of Hanson's mother  who is-living in Norway.

With the hurly-burly  of travel aud multifarious diets in  going about from one hotel to another,,  Mr. Ross is now ready to welcome a,  little of the simpler life ab his a in  fire-side.  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn returned on  Saturday night last from Vancouver,  where he filled bhe pulpit of St. Andrew's church, preaching morning and  evening to large congregations on two  successive Sundays, March 1st and 8th.  The Vancouver Province had an extended and very complimentary reference to his preaching; but oh, that  awful pen picture of him which had  him dancing around in the pulpit,  grey-haired and twenty more years on  his shoulders.  The steam shovel across the river  below Ashnola creek, which is now  the extreme south end, is keeping  steadily ab work and moving ground  rapidly. While they fully expect that  it will have, completed its work over  there before high water, no chances  will be taken on that, and it will be  brought .over before the water gets too  high. Should there lie any work unfinished when the shovel is moved ib  will be done by car and scraper.  During the past two weeks the working force has been increased considerably. At the end of last week 12o men  were reported to have been added to  the force and these have been distributed over the various camps. Two  weeks' ago the longest stretch remaining uncovered was that between the  cub where the steam shovel is working  and the mouth of Ashnola creek, bub  now several gangs are in there and  some long fills have been made. Bib  by bib the graded portions are. being  connected up, and it will only be a  matter of a fortnight or so more until  the steam shovel may be moved on  grade all the way to the nexb crossing  of bhe river a little below the lower  end of brushy bottom.  Of course it will take longer than  that for the shovel to finish up bhe cub  in which it is now working, bub as ib  must be moved along the grade they  are rushing the work on that part so  as to have the grade all ready to inake  the move in case the water commences  to rise sooner than usual.  At the north end of brushy bottom  a big cutting has already been made,  and for over two weeks traffic on the.  wagon road, has hacl,to go by the new  road.  Between Bradshaw's and camp No.  2, at the mission, several of the subcontractors have finished their sections  and long stretches of grade are ready  for bhe rails. The first big gravel cub  below bhe rock cut is now more than  three-fourths done. Bv far the deepest portion of the cut has been made  and the big fill beyond is compli-tcd.  They have now moved the cars to this  end whore the cut is -shallower anil the  car am much shorter.  On the rock cut good progress is  being made, and F. P. Howard is getting out on shallower ground and has  abandoned the dump carts for a pair  of dirt cars. -    ���������'  Right-of-way- work is also in progress to the west. A.

Editor Gazette, <  .,  ' Hedley, B.C.  Dear Sir:���������  Kindly allow me to rectify  a grave error that :.*i.ppeared iii your  editorial colninus last week. You  peremptorily place the blame for the  ���������murder of the Roman Catholic priest  at Denver, Colorado, j)ii the Socialist  papers, more particularly the Appeal  to Reason. Probably you are quite  honest in making such a statement,  but a false statement made in ignorance by an honest '���������man is just as pernicious as ;i false statement made with  intent, ..  Now, I challenge you to mention  one instance where the Appeal to Reason has ever incited to murder, or  even to injury to person��������� or property.  Socialism is precisely what the Encyclopedia Britauniea says it'is:' "The  ethics of Socialism are. identical -with  the ethics of Christianity." And- lie-  fore proceeding* further let .me cite you  a few other world known authorities :  "A theory of society that advocates  a mom precise, orderly and harmonious arrangement of the social relations  of mankind than that which "has  hitherto prevailed.''-���������Webster .  "Socialism is the ideal and hope of a  ,  new   society, .founded    on    industrial  .-   peace and  forethought,   aiming   at'a  new and higher-life for all .men."���������W.  , Morris.  Socialism is si inply applied Christian-  it jr, the Golden Rule applied to every  day life."���������Prof. Ely.-  "Socialism being the product of  social 'evolution the only danger lies  in obstructing it."���������Rev. F. M.  'Sprague.  I.-. "Government and co-operation are  in all tilings and eternally the laws of  life; anarchy and competition;- eter-  ��������� nally and in all things, the laws of  death."���������John Ruskin. (I refrain from  further quotations fearing to absorb  too much of your space.)  The Appeal to Rosson is a propaganda paper, and its chief function consists in showing up the abuses,  inconsistencies, unfairness, hypocrisies, robberies,   fraud, .cheating,    callousness  and all the various evils of the capitalist system. ��������� Its   robust   .invective- is  and always has been  against the. system, and  to do- this effectively' the  public life of certain   prominent individuals have to I ib shown  up.     But  such is the inconsistency, of the capitalistic mind that when  a prominent  public man is denounced and sacrificed  in a capitalist newspaper it is merely  politics,   bub  when  bhe same public  iuau is shown up in  a Socialist paper  it is treason, and ought to be supressed.  Now, mv dear sir,  it is amply demonstrated  that   the poor, foreigner  who   shot   the.   priest   was   starving.  Starvation  often   produces   insanity.  Therefore it seems  reasonable  to  believe that it was homicidal insanity.  Ifc may turn oub that the priest was a.  victim of anarchism,���������as widely separated from Socialism as the North pole  is from the South.   But you, like the  capitalistic agency  which telegraphed  the first account of the murder, seized  the wish   which   was   father  to the  thought and ab once announced ib as a  Socialist crime!  Let me, in conclusion ask you one  question. Did you ever know or read  of a, Socialist being convicted or even  .. indicted, in any criminal court? Of  course I do not include being arrested  for street speaking, which is certainly  nob a crime. If it were the members  of the Salvation Army would*,spend  most of their bime in jail.  Sir, be a little more charitable in  your thoughts towards those of your  brothels who in their efforts to bene*  fit the whole of humanity, are subjected to the obloquy and contumely  of the capitalist-minded press.  Trusting that you will some day see  clearly what Socialism will mean for  the race, believe me,  Yours Sincerely,  R. W. Northey.  Olalla, B. C.

In such  cases the shift boss coming off shift  must write plainly on the bulletin  board provided for that purpose, the  place where the. missed holes have been  left and the number of missed holes.  ft is the duty of the on-coming shift to  find ont if there are any missed holes  or other danger where they are going  to work.  "When returning to any place after  a blast or blasts have been fired, each  employe upon entering such place  must make a careful examination for  any loose rock or other elements of  danger by which he could he injured,  and if any such be found, he shall immediately make it safe, or if unable to  do so himself, report the same to the  shift boss or foreman before proceeding to work.
