Word reached town Sunday of tho accident at the Nettie L. mine, near Ferguson, in which four miners were  - asphyxiated, and two are under the  doctor's care, in which Bob Savage an  oid Sandonit'e" lost his life'and Jack Mo-  Leod, also well known in Sandon came  out a hero. It. appears that tlie day  shift had quit work at 4 p. in. and fired  their shots, and it is thought that in  some manner or other the   powder gas  and smoke accumulated   in  the   lower  'workings and did not escape before the  night shift cam eon.  Bob   Savage   was   the   first  man   to  ���������   de.-icentl to his work, and   when  at   the  atthe bo'torn he was heard lo   call   for  help, crying out that he was suffocating.  George Groshey descended to his re-  cue anc*! succeeded in bringing him" up to  the floor levelvvheu Groshey became insensible  and .Savage's   body  dropped  backdown the winze a distnnceof about,  forty feet.    Allan Caulder then   rushed  down the ladder, and  on  reaching   the  bottom called out   for   help,   and   Pat  Orilley, shift boss and  brother  of  the  superintendent,  went down   to   share  Oaulder's fate.   Barclay   Crilley   when  down and actually reached his brother,  but the-gas drove Ii iin up  to   the   level  more dead than alive.  Jack McLeod, an, old time Sandon  miner made an attempt at rescue with  a rope. He secured a body with the  lino and bore it to the ladder foot. The  men above raised Paddy.Crilley to the  level, MoLeod partly 'sustaining hiin  from the ladder. Six times McLeod  came up with the body of a rescued  comrade, and went down six times r'i k-  ing death. The sixth and lust man  having been carried up McLeod collapsed, and Jack Sweeny descended to see  if any more remained in the mine.  McLeod had to go down again and bring  out Sweeny. McLeod came out of his  experience uninjured. The names of  the dead are Tat Crilley, shift boss;  Allan Caulder, Ed. Cognan and Robert  Savage. Two men, Nels Johnson and  Otto Bloom, are now. under the doctor's  care, and are expected to recoverr No.  blame is attached to.the mine management, appliances or equipment.  Thc bravery of the miners is equal to  any heroism recorded, while the gallantry of McLeod iaexceptional. " Knowing  full well he would be overcome by the  deadly gases, as tho others had, he  descended into the death jiit to endeavor to save the lives of his comrades.  Heroes at most take their lives in their  own hands. McLeod took hie, and succeeded in bringing all the bodies to the  surfac.e and saving two lives, to be overcome himself when his task was done,  but thanks to a vigorous constitution  he came to without fatal results to himself. His gallant action should be  brought before the Royal Humane Society. The medal for bravery has been  awarded for deeds performed attended  by leas-danger than that of the gallant  action of Jack McLeod in the rescue of  his comrades in the Nettie L.- mine last  Saturday.

The force at the American Boy came  down the hill Tuesday. Tliere whs no  strike or shut-down ; but simply a precaution against all danger of accidr-nts  from elides.  Mrs. McKinnon returned from Poss-  laiidon Tuesday where she went to see  her son John, who was taken, ill. Johnny is-improving and will shortly return  to Kaiifcluops.  Travelling iu the Slocan in the winter  is not a pleasure by any means, eep'-ci-  ally after a snow storm. It required ihe  patience of Job and the courage of a  Spartan to attempt a journey the past  past we������*k, by it was done by many all  the same.'  A number of small slides came down  around the Star mine on Wednesday.  Three rolled down thc bill in about ten  minutes between lhe Silversmith workings and the bunkhouse shortly after the  change of shifts, and no one was hurt.  Rov. Al J.

Sandon has been without  mail fiom that/section for several days.  The blockade on the K. and S. occ -ried  j A slide came down Wednesday-tit the  Idaho mine and struck a building without injuring anyone. Pour or five men  were inside at time plaving a game of  cards to wile away the hours, when the  snow ploughed in. In their hasty exit  they did not wait to nee who had a full  house or took the jackpot.-  The Ashford Bros, have just finished a  large contract on the Texas ground part  of the Reco group-of claims. In all they  drove 300 feet of tunnelingand upraises,  covering a period of five months, or at  the rate of two feet per day, which,  when the nature of the rock encountered is considered would be classed us  remarkably fast work.  "Sherry" Bircholl is now on his way  back to the Sloodii to assume "his old  position as book-keeper,at the Arlington and left Dartmouth iic-ar Halifax  on the 3rd inst. Sherry has been east  for some time on his holidays and has  been laid up most of the time from injuries received in an ice boating accident, but has now fully recovered.  The Lucky Jim slide suspended traffic  on the K. & S, nearly the whole week.  A portion of the avalanche in coming  down buried, the track many feet,  while another section of it overhanging  was ready to drop at any moment. The  overhanging bank was considered too  dangerous to allow the rotary to clear  the obstruction an,it was thought the  jarring of the engine would eaus-e it to  fall while--breaking through and probably bury Ihe engine and crew without  giving them a chance to escape.  NextTuesday is St. Patrick's day, dear  to the sons of the ' Emerald Jsle where  ever they may be. Never befoie in the  troubled history of unhappy Ireland  are the propects forlougstnnding justice  being meted out to the. gallant and long  suffering Irish people. . The land question promiees to be peacefully settled  in the. near future, and some form of  local self-govern merit is expccOd to follow. At the next anniversary of lie-  land's day we hope to hear of God Save  the Xing played in unionism with the  strains of St. Patrick's day, and the  pathetic song of The Wearing of the  Green as it now stands pass into oblivion. "Erin nuiYourneen ! Erin go  bragh !  J.'M. Harris returned to town Thursday from his'trip'to Spokane,������������������and had  another escape from slides. Mr. Harris  intended to leave for home on Monday,  and at the last moment derided to stay  over until the following day, and it was  lucky he did. Numerous snow-slides  came down on Monday at many points  along the Spokane Fails and Northern  railway. The passenger tnun wasstuck  in the snow drifts several miles from  Nelson.   The   C. P.

Among the many is  one from Attorney-Genual El i its .j-j <!  other influential person-- in lie province. Some of the mines which have  paid dividends are not down on the list  because of the difficulty in obtaining the  desired informrtion. Mr. Sandilandsin  compiling the list desired to gel it as  accurate as possible, and sent out tothe  di/I'erent mines for that purpose. Some  of the managers were away and replies  not received in time to secure insertion  on the list. This information is now  arriving and Mr. Sandilands has for-  .warded the figures to the Review for  publication. Cards have been sent to  all mine managers, brokers and others  interested in mining and the flattering  letters received by E. M. shows that his  trouble has been rewarded and the Slocan will be greatly benefitted.  The following is the data of mines received this week from the mine officials and is therefore accurate :  The St. Eugene Gonpolidated Mining  Company, Ltd.���������Capital, $3,500,000.00;  par value of shares, $1 each ; dividends  paid, $210,000.00; situated at Moyie, in  Fort Steele district.

The Ymir. a  gold   property   in East '  Kootenay has paid dividends to date of  $288,000.00.  A mistake was made in the amount  of dividends paid by the Whitewater  mine of this district. The amount was  put down as $104,000.00, but from information received the total paid to  date is $200,000.00.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1903.  Somebody must have given  the Pay-  streak chap a jolt lately  on   his   stand  against the lead tariff, as   he   ha-3 'suddenly let up   on   his   ravings.   It  is a  singular fact that the blue print  is the  only sheet in British  Columbia  opposing, and ineffectually, the revision of the  tariff.   Just as soon as tho miheowners  announced their intention of petitioning  the Dominion government to raise (he  duty on lead and its products, to better  the silver-lead industry, the bluestreak  burst forth with abuse against the chairman of the committee appointed to look  after the matter, and   devoted   column  after column in recanting on the fallacy  of protection and the  glorious benefits  ,     derived from free trade.   Free trade be  giggered!   For all the duty tliere is on  lead and its products we   have   practically free trade at present, and   what is  the result?   Froze out of our own market; turned out,of  the  American   and  British markets;   mines  closed  down;  every line of business depressed, and all  who can get out of   the district doing so  as   fast   as  they  can..   Glorious   blue  streaked   benefits   derived    from    free  trade!    Glorious, indeed; but don't tell  anybody   t-o, or  you   are  liable to get  knocked down, as it is a sore  point just  now.   The prosperous condition of the  silver-lead districts across the border is  pointed out; yes, thanks to  the protective tariff in force there, and   the  only  way to bring about the same condition  here, is to adopt a like policy, which  is  exactly what the  Slocan  mine owners  are trying to do.   Of Course the producers know their own business all right,  but   bombaster  McAdam   knows more  than they do, even if he don't know his  own,   and   they   are certainly treating  him with the contempt he deserves to  say the least.   Where the editor of the  blue print gets his wonderful   information is a matter of   conjecture.   Many  aver his font of knowledge come from a  clique of alien rounders and abort hour  and   no   hour  at   all   men, who decry  everything British  and   Canadian,  especially   anything   that would develop  the mining industry of   this   province,  NOW IS THE TIME  Seasons change. We can't  change them. We can't prevent the coming of cold and  damp airs.  But we can prevent the sore  throats, the coughs, colds and  lung troubles by taking Scott's  Emulsion.

Now is the  season for taking Scott's  Emulsion in season.  Boundary districts, who were anticipating a general shut-down, can breathe  more freely. The smelters have been  assured of adequate coke su* ply from  the Comox ovens on the coast until thc  difficulty is settled. The capacity of  coking ovens at Cdmox Is 200 tons a day,  and to this is added some 6,000 or 7,000  tons held in reserve by the company for,  Eyerett and Crofton, aiid which is now  being forwarded to the affected smelters  We'll send you a little to try, if you Klce.

The C. P. R.  following the announcement of General  Supt. Mai pole during his  visit to these  districts some weeks ago, cut its freight  rates to what is said to be below the actual cost of hfuling, while the coal company made a similar  cut   in the article  itself,  in   order   to   help out the mine  owners from  an   absolute   shutdown.  The  supply   of  coke ayailable is sufficient to treat nearly 00,000 tons of ore.  Thu Boundary and Trail   smelters now  handle 3,000 tons daily, and   with  the  coke  supply   available    ensures    the  smelters . running .full    blast   for    a  month at least.   The. Granby smelter is  consuming 200 tons a day and the Canadian smelting works   at Trail 100, and  both could -use more. The rate at which  the coke is  laid   down   at the smelters  has not   been   given   out,  but it is bo-  lieved  to   be about !}8, -which is double'  that of the Crow'*-! Nest product.   The  Le Roi smelter at Northport refused the  Comox. coke  on   account of the Great  Northern railway company demanding  $11 a ton.   As the Granby smelter would  hardly pay more than the   Le   Roi, tlie  supposition   is   they   get   the fuel laid  down at their works in  Grand Forks by  the C.-P. R. for $8 a ton.  NOTICE.

An  intrigue is  on foot to ignore Martin, oust Prior,and  endeavor to place the schemers, Eberts  and McBride, iu control with   the latter  as premier.   This naturally has aroused  the wrath of political mounteback Martin and at the result Col.  Prior cannot  but smile.   Martin has issued a manifesto explaining   his  position with the  tri-colour  opposition,   one   faction   of  which he is leader. . In this manifesto  he atates that he leagued himself with  the other opposition branches, on   the  express understanding that in theevent  of the defeat of the  Prior  government,  the House would be dissolved   and  an  appeal made to  the country on straight  party   lines.   The scheme  of McBride  _ and Eber.ts to place themselves in.power  and freeze out   Martin altogether, has  aroused the enmity of the political disturber himself, and he intends to be on  his guard.   In the future Martin will be  as watchful   of   the other two as others  have been as watchful of  him, and   he  intends   to   be  very careful   where he  treads at the present.   Any attempt to  put the scheme concocted   by McBride  into operation, will be defeated by-Martin.    While the latter has no sympathy  with the Prior  government,   he has no  use at all for one under the leadership  of McBride, and Martin   will   throw in  his support   with   the   present government to defeat the ambitious opposition  leader's aim.   Premier Prior is already  assured of a working majority, and with  Martin  and   followers    joining   him���������  which although undesirable will not be  refused���������a strong government wMl.be  the  result.     Little  reliance  may   be  placed on the promises of Martin, as his  political record is such that when you  think you have him, then is the time  you haven't.

Its  stock,   however, has always been a favorite investment with Nova Scotians, no' less than  $800,000 of its  capital   being   held  in  their province.   The purchase  of  The  Halifax Banking Company will givej it  offices at  fifteen   additional   points  in  Nova Scotia, including Halifax,   Truro  and Windsor,���������in fact, all the more important places. Two branches will also be  obtained in   New   Brunswick,���������at   St.  John and Sackville.  The present directors of The Halifax  Banking Company will continue to give  their services in the capacity of a local  advisory board at Halifax, the cashier  will become local manager there, and the  entire staff will be taken in the service  of The Canadian  Bank   of  Commerce.  There is consequently no doubt butthat  the good will of the institution is being  taken over along with its tangible assets.  Originally established in   1825   as  a  private partnership,   ande'r   the   same  name as at present, The Halifax Banking Company became incorporated   in  1872.    It  has retained   the   friendship  and support of many of the old  Halifax  firms   who   predecessors   did   business  with it in its earlier years, and in spite  of the disadvantages   under   which   in  these days a comparatively small local  bank must always labor, it has built up  a sound and remunerative business.    It  has a paid up capital of $000,000 with   a |  rest of $525,000.   Its deposits are about  $4,000,000, its total assets about $0,000.-  000, and ���������vith ,thu added strength   and  prestige which   its   incorporation   into  The Canadian Bank of Commerce   will  necessarily give, a. large increase in the  present business may confidently be expected.

The figures of the recent census show  that the immigration from   the   United  Kingdom in  the   Dominion   of Canada  does not suffice to supply the   loss  by  death among tho British born and Irish  inhabitant* of the country.   Of persons  born in England,  Ire-land  or  Scothmd  there were residing in Canada   in   1901  only 3S9,0G2, as-against 485,524 in  1871.  That is to'say, there arc  fewer   British  and Irish-born  people in Canada today  by nearly 100,000 than there was thirty  years ago.   On the other hand, the number of immigrants from countries other  than those embraced in the British Empire was 278.804 in 1901, as against only  131,083 in 1881.     Of  the  49,149   immigrants that entered Canada in 1901 onl}*.  11,810 wore of British and Irish   birth.  'If the inflow from   the  United   Statts  shall continue to increase as it   has ill:  creased during Lhe last twelve   months,  and no change takes place in the inflow  trom the United Kingdom, the foreign-  born residents in Canada will soon outnumber the immigrants of British and  Irish born.  There is another ominous fact brought  out by the last consus. The Canadians  of English, Scotch or .Irish decent are  increasing much less rapidly than are  the French-Canadians. The latter  double in numbers every quarter of a  century. In Quebec, the province in  which French speaking people are most-  numerous, the birth rate is 36.80 per  thousand. In this part of ths Dominion families of eighteen, twenty and  even more children arenot infrequent.  The last census, when compared'with the  proceeding census, proves that English  speaking people are being gradually  squeezed out of the province of Quebec,  while settlements of French-Canadians  are being formed in other parts of the  Dominion.

Business  Portion  of the   Town  Goes Up in Smoke.  The Dominion legislature convened  for business last Thursday. Considering the many speeches anticipated on  the burning questions to come before  House, there will be some stiff breezes  around Parliament hill long after March  has blown itself out of the 1903 calendar.  The clerkg strike is still on   at  Vancouver and arbitration has failed.    The  men are determined  to  hold   out  for  their just rights and freight traffic is at  a standstill.   The clerks are not asking  for a raise of wages���������which are none too  high���������but simply to form their brotherhood without molestation by   the   railway officials.     The class  of   men   cm-  ployed  are   away   abovej (he   avenige  strikers and would   not   cause   trouble  wnlVout good reason.    While adverse to  strikes in general there are times jjwhen  they are necessary   for   protection   to  those concerned and the strike at   Vancouver is one of   them.     Unions   when 1  properly conducted, are of a great benefit to both employer and employee, and  the   United   Brotherhood   of   Railway,  Employees is one of these, and as  such I  have the sympathy of the entire public.'  New Denver was thesceneof aserious  fire Thursday night  about   7.30, when  Bourne Bros., general store, the  Windsor hotel, Jeffrey's tin shop and two   or  three vacant buildings were  totally <le-i  stroyed.    The cbnflagation   commenced j  in the upper story of the Windsor hotel.  The     origin,    of    the    fire     is     not  known, but is  generally   supposed   to  have been caused by a defective  stove.  The whole block in which thesebuild-  ings were situated were totally at  the  mercy of the  fire   fiend, owing   to the  closa compactness of the structures and  the lack of proper fire protection. From  its commencent until the l.inie it 'subsided the fire only lasted  two hours.   The  source of the watsr supply was   derived  from Slocan" lake near   at hand   and  was conveyed to the scence of the fire  by means of a siriali movable watertank  and hand buckets.   By this method the  fire was confined to the one quarter and  kept from spreading to other sectionsof  the town.  Election of Sandon Union Officers.  !0aI/TKe Besf.

The facts are   not surprising  when it is know that the culprit, Marti-  neau. who had   a   shady   character   in  Montreal, was not required to pass  the  regular civil service examination.    He  is a nephew of Sir   Wilfrid Laurier and  upon    his   recommendation   alone   received the appointment.   The Premier,  by an act of parliament and  "notwithstanding anything [n Civil Service Act,"  translated Martineau from the scene of  a mysterious fire in Montreal to a position of great trust in the MilitiaDepart-  ment.   The loss of $75,000 in less   than  six months is the  result   of   the   First  Minister's legalized breach oflaw.  Mar-  tinoau's only qualification a't'iiis to have  been/his relationship to Sir Wilfrid, and  the people will pay a good   round   sum  for the privilege of having a scallywag  thrust-upor them.
