CRUSHED BY  ORE  CARS  Ira E. James Killed Yesterday  Morning.  AT THE KNOB HILL OHE  CRUSHER  Slipped Between Two C. P. R Ore Dump;  While Loading���Young Man of About 25  Years���Employed About a Month.  Yesterday morning about one o'clock  Ira Ii. James, one of lite ore loaders al  the Granby mines, was Killed by falling  from one of the C. P. It, ore dumps,  and being ciushed beneath tlie'wheels.  James had been in the employ of the  Granby Co. for about 11 month, and  was a young man of about 25 years,  the accident happening on the switch  at the Knob Hill ore crusher.  It 'appears that James and another  loader named Dunlap were letting the  loaded cars down the switch, out of the  way, when James fell between the cars,  and before they could be stopped was  dished. Life was extinct when be  was leached;  James was -air.American,' but had  been in the Boundary for some time,  having been employed at the Mother  Lode mine (or; a few months, and pre-  | viutis to that, working for a man named  Davis at Midway. He has a sister living  in Brooklyn/New York,'who has been  wired to by Constable Darraugh in regard to the disposition of the remains.  Coroner poster, qf Greenwood, was  summoned, but after looking into the  case it was decided that an inquest was  unnecessary. James had been warned  by Dunlap that it was dangerous lo  move the car at that time, but he per  sisted with the above fatal result.  MINES WILL CONTINUE  if Smelters Close, Big Boundary  Producers WjHSljII Operate.  ' An Idea has prevailed for several days that, in case all the  Boundary smellers were compelled to cease operations, on account of the coal miners' strike,  the large producing mines ol the  Boundary would also shut up  tight for the time being, This  is a mistake, especially in regard  to the two largest, properties, the  Granby and the Mother Lede.  Wm. Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Granby mines,  stated to a Pioneer man, that,  even if the smelter was closed in  ��� two weeks because of lack of coke,  the mines in this camp would be  kept running almost with the full  present force, Whj|e no^ship-;  ping could be done to speak of,  after the smelter and mine ore  bunkeis were filled, there are immense spaces In the mines that  could be filled with broken ore.  Besides this, Mr., Williams has a  large amount of development  work that he would like to" get  out of the way, and this will give  him a chance to. do this, whereas just at present, on account ol  not having air enough, the drills  are used almost entirely for breaking down ore.  Reports have been sent out of  the Boundary (his week that the  Mother Lode mine had been closed. -This is a mistake. Such is  not the case, When the smeller  was closed Tuesday night, some  twenty men were laid off at the  Mother Lode mine, leaving about  55 men still there. It is the expectation to keep this force busy  on development, and other work  for the time being. The ore crusher will be operated every other  day for the present, and as ore  bins hold some 8,000 tons, it will  ta.ke three weeks to fill.them, at  least. While regular shipments  Were maintained, there were many  things about the mjne not easy  to get al. These will now be attended to.    .  Therefore it is probable that  the Boundary's two largest properties will continue operations  anyway, even if on a" somewhat  reduced scale.  MR. MARPOLB WAS HERE;  Accompanied by a Number of Officials Last  '..'���.'��� Sunday^ ������*',"  ��� Last Sunday a special train brought  Robert Marpole, superintendent of  the Pacific division of the C. P.' R.,  who was making a general inspection  of the lines, the first since his visit to  the east, or since lastv?summer. Mr.  Marpole was. accompanied by the following gentlemen: '\Vm. Downie,  superintendent', of fcopteiiay-Bound-  ary Branches; Captain- ]. W. Troup,  of the company's steojmer service at  Vancouver; Master Mechanic Temple,  of Revelstoke; R. A. Bainbridgc, divisional engineer, of Nelson; II. L.  Johnson, roadmaster, Greenwood, and  II. ty.'GnJei', assistant manager of the  Granby Cq.  The party stayed over night at  Grand Forks and .:inspected' the  Granby smelter, where Mr, Galer  joined il, Coming up to Phoenix  Sunday morning, the company's trackage facilaties were inspected, and some  additional work arranged for. The  entire party was entertained at dinner  al the"Ofahtrybuirk house, and then  drove to Greenwood, arriving back at  Nelson the same evening..' ''���/'".

R. Pittock and  other owners was paid, there remains a  clear gain of $1,027.50. The claim  has been worked for about two months  and there is considerable similar ore in  sight.���Greenwood Times.

The hall was well filled and  Mayor Rumberger was called to the  chair, with Win. Tomlinson as secretary,  A number of speeches were made  explaining the objects of the meeting,  among them being talks by ]..W, Ast-  ley, Wm. Yolen Williams, W. R. Williams, Mayor Rumberger, W.

Smith, Jr., and Thomas  Roderick, who will lepoit to another  meeting to be held in the lower room  of Mineis' Union hall th|s evening at  7 o'clock,  The committee is for the purpose  of devising ways and means to send  delegates, probably five, to the convention. The delegates will be selected at a meeting tonight. A membership roll has already been started and  1 large number have signed.  A meeting was held in Greenwood  last Thursday evening, and five delegates were chosen to represent that city  at Victoria, as follows: Mayor Ralph  Smailes, Frederic Keffer, Albert I.  GOodell,- Marry Johns and W. G.  Gaunce. It is understood that Grand  Forks will also send fiye delegates, so  ihat.tlie Boundary will be well represented at the meeting..  Lyons-Walters Wedding.  A wedding of much interest to Phoe  nicians was solemnized at St. Jude's  Hall, Greenwood, on the evening ol  Febiuary ijjth, Rev. \V. A. 'Robins  officiating. The contracting parties  were Annie Louise Walters and Thomas  Francis Lyons, both well known young  people of I'hoenix, who have lived here  lorn number of years. Mr, and Mrs.  William Laird were the only ones present from Pho. nix, The bride was attired in a becoming grey travelling  dress. Yesterday the happy couple  returned to this city, and are receiving  the congratulations of their numerous  friends, the bride being the daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. William Walters;.  j ���      ,.

' :'  Poi' ten days the strike of the coal  miners in all the East Kootenay mines,  whence all the fuel for Kootenay and  Boundary mines and smelters comes,  has been on, and al last reports there  is no immediate prospect of settlement.  In last week's issue of the Fernie Free  Press the striking miners set forth theii  grievances, and there is a long list of  them, which, if the statements are  those of fact, deserve adjustmentby the  Crow's. N,est Pass company. John H  Tonkin, manager of the company, has  not yet given out his side of thestory  but it will probably be somewhat diffei -  ent���as is to be expected.  In any event, however, fuel from the  East Kootenay mines, has ceased entirely to be shipped/'and as a result  smelters and mines, must inevitably  close or cut down forces for the time  being at least. In Rossiand it is claim  ed that the Great Northern will get  coke for the N,Qrlhp,ort smelter, but  ju,st where it is to come from is not  explained. In the meantime, ihe  Northport smelter still remains closed,  and this week the Greenwood smelter  was allowed to go cold also, and the  lorce at the Mother Lode mine was  materially reduced. The Sunset sme!  ter can run'a sjiqrt time and the Granby smelter for perhaps two weeks  longer, .    .. ������,..;     ,',,'  ',';���:..���..  As neither side to the strike seems  disposed to give in, the general public  is realizing the wide extent of its effect  in the l^ootenay and Yale, In districts where development alone is  largely done, the effect is not so immediate, but in the older mining camps,  where the getting out of ore for the  smelters is done on a large scale, the  etiect is felt at o.nce..  For the purpose of getting at the  number of persons who are directly or  indirectly affet.ted by the strike, the  Pioneer has compiled the following  table, the figures in which are believed  to be under rather than oyer the actual  figures if made by a census enumerator;  No  Locality,  Boundary  mines ,.,-.'

One  EAGLES AS HOCKEY PLAYERS.  Game  For Charity  and  Another With  Grand Forks.  This week the members of the local  aerie of Eagles have been doing a gieat  line of business in hockey, playing two  �����nmes���one in I'hoenix and the other  at Grand  Forks,  Monday evening the City Eagles and  t le Granby Eagles played off a match  -ame at the Phoenix rink, the occasion bt'inga benefit for Mrs. A. Mutll.r  and family, Mr. Mueller having recent  ly died at the Phoenix General Hospital. After a warmly contested game,  in which there was some most remarkable and brilliant playing on either side,  the score stood a���2, but as something  over $40 had been realized for the object intended, it was believed that the  onlookers had received their money's  worth.    The following was the line-up:  City Eagles ��� Jenkins., Marshall,  Shea, Driscoll, McAuliffe, Karatofsky  and Laird.  I Granby Eagles ��� Dean, Fleming,  iBougard, Newell, Lamping and Johnson,  Two drills are being temporarily run  by steam in the upper end of the  ijloiy hole at the Knob Hill mine.  Tuesday evening the Mother Lode  smelter was blown out, on orders from  the head office in New York city, on  account of the shortage in the supply  of fuel.  On M. R. Feeney's claim, the Florence, on the North Fork of Kettle  river, $20 ore has recently been struck  in a crosscut from the bottom of a 50-  loot shaft,    . r  The Sunset smelter is still running  at Boundaiy Falls, but cannot keep  busy long, as the coke and coal supply  is limited, nnd of course, none is coming in from Fernie.'  Things were quiet for two days this  week at the Snowshoe, on account of  closing down to clean the boilers. If  there was plenty of water, it would  take much less time.

This week Secretary Jackson, of  the Associated Boards of Trade ot  Eastern British Columbia, sent out  notices of the annual meeting of the  organisation, which will take place at  Fernie on the 18th of March. The  notifications of the date and place of  meeting of this "Business.Men's Parliament of the Interior" have been  sent out to the different members as  follows: Nelson, Rossiand, Grand  Forks, Cascade, Phoenix, Cranbrook,  Kaslo, . Moyie, Fort Steele, Trail,  Greenwood and Fernie. Each board  is entitled to two delegates in addition  to the president of the board.  Last year the annual meeting of the  Associated Boards wat held at Kaslo,  and it was then voted to assemble at  Fernie this )ear. The president of  the organization is. G, O. Buchanan,  of Kaslo.  The Kaslo board will introduce resolutions requesting the provincial government to nievent forest fires, and to  acquire one bundled thousand acres  of East Kootenay pine lands for a  public park, and that the Dominion  government be asked to establish an  experimental apple orchard in the  Rocky mountains; also, that each,  board of trade in the, province send  two delegates to a .convention to  be held at Kamloops to form a provincial board of trade. The Rossiand  board will proha.hly offer resolutions  dealing with the coke and coal supply.

The junior hockey boys from Phoenix went down 10 Grand Forks on Fri-  da) 's train of last week, and had a game  there with a similar team from that city.  The Phoenix boys came out ahead by  a score of four to one, and stale they  should have had it foul- to nothing.  Jim fierce was captain of the I'hoenix  team, which came back on Saturday's  train, well pleased with their reception  in ihe Smelter City. The following  composed the two teams:  Grand Forks���Taylor, Tiaunweiser,  -Sloper, Michner, Birbeck, Hay and  Feeney.  I'hoenix���-G. Biner, McAuliffe, A.  Biner, McKelvie, fierce,.

The mine will ship too ions daily to  the Sunset smelter.  Last Saturday Chas. S.- Sangster,  mechanical expert for the Canadian  Rand Drill Co., of Sherbrooke, Que,  completed the task of assembling the  parts of- the largest air compressor in  the Dominion of Canada, which will  be placed in use at the Granby mines  in a short time. The compressor will  be driven by electricity in two parts,  with two motors, each of 700 horse  power capacity. These motors, which  have been ordered 'for'riiany moh'ths,  were shipped from the makers, the  Westinghouse Electrical Co., of Pitts-  buigh, Pa., this week, and in another  month should arrive and be placed in  position. . '       ,���'  For some time past the drill capaci-'  ty of the Granby mines has been quite  hard pressed, especially since the average day's shipments of ore have been  1,500 tons,'and the putting into use of  the new compressor will be of material  assistance in getting out the requisite  amount of ore, as well as providing"  the needed power for development���  somet h ing that Sujierintendent : AVil-  iams never loses sight 01.  As, is now well known, the new compressor plant will have a. capacity that  will allow of the mines here shipping  ore at the rate of 5,000 tons every 24  hours, and it is the. intention to in-,  crease the . smelter capapity -till'1- it  reaches this figure.'

One of the first things that the public wants to learn���is, in fact, entitled  to know���when" a great strike is on,  that affects entire communities, be they  great> small, is who is really at the  bottom of; the trouble. Is it the employer or, the employed ? While some  of the issues may be obscured for a  , tirae,'sooner or later the public ascertains, the facts and gives its verdict accordingly. And the verdict of the  general public is more often right than  wrong.  Mr. Tonkin affects to believe that  he does not know why the strike is on.  What rot. And he declines to see a  committee of the men, which only  complicates matters. It is also whispered lhat the coal  company is losing  money���yet a ten  perj*nt_Hv_L_uL  was declared lasryCSr:  In the foregoing we have no wish to  appear unlalr to Mr. Tonkin, and  have merely stated the case as it ap-  appeais at this distance. It is certainly beyond dispute that all these  labor troubles have arisen since his  advent to the Crow's Nest. ' It is now  up to him to give and take a little, and  settle the Double before it reaches the  acute stage and prostrates the mining  ndustry of Southeastern British Co  lumbia. We have yet to learn that  Mr. Tonkin will have difficulty in ar  riving at an amicable understanding  with his men.  A thought for dull times. Some  times trade comes without adveitising  Soiuemoretimesfiiood advertising brings  irade.  It is a wise doctor who knows when  not to give medicine. An important  part of an advertising man's business  is to know what to leave out.  Consider, the yeais. How they fly!  Are they working for you? They are  doing this for many-lor time is always  woiking foi the good advertiser.  A man may think he knows a good  deal about advertising but when he  begins to adveitise he knows that he  doesn't know as much as he thought  he knew.  An advertisement should be earnest  There should be no possible chance ol  mistaking its meaning. Earnestness is  ihe key to the do^r of conviction. The  earnest speaker is always effective, and  the adveiti'ser who'writes iu the faitn  that he' hr.s something good lo offer, is  sure to win tride.  INSURANCE AOKNT,  FIRE, Ul-E, ACC DENT.

Coming nearer' home, the question  ���rises as to'whether the coal miners  at Michel, Mdrrissey ����4 Fernie, in  East Kootenay, who, walked out last  ��K*k,;and thereby threatened paralysis  " to the entire mining industry of East and  Wek^t-wtenay and Yale, were justified  in doing so.   To consider the matter  -   fairly,' let us turn back the page of his-  ' tto'ry.for a year and follow the events.  ! A rear ago such a thing as a strike  inTfhe East Kootenay collieries was  unheard of,. Apparently the men employed were satisfied with the conditions existing there. If tbejr were not  sktisfied; the general jwblic "did not  hearof il> and the aa^as secured aJI.  thVcoal and coke needed. Jt will be!  noted, also, that this satisfactory state  'ofaffairs was prior to the engagement  of John H. Tonkin as general manager of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.  f i/lr. Tonkin arrived from Pennsylvania in May, and assumed the entire  tijharge of the company's  propeities,  and' almost immediately the trouble  began, and a strike followed.   The  nice asserted that a new system was  put; in force by Mr. Tonkin by which  their earnings'were considerably decreased.    This has never been denied  '. bf 1 Mr. Tonkin, so far   as   known.  'Alter  the strike-had  lasted \ several  ��^Be$k6 a conference was held, resulting  ���5��4he men returning to work under a  .new schedule, which   after   a three  months' trial, if the men wete not satisfied, Mr. Tonkin agreed to do away  with and to return to the old scale.  A special issue of the HriUsh Columbia Gazette states that the legislative assembly will meet Thursday,  March 12th. It is already up to  Premier Prior and his advisors to  take steps to avoid a repetition of disastrous coal miners' strike now paralyzing the entire metalliferous industry ot Southern British Columbia.  This week the pleasing news was re  cetved that Hon. Williim Mulo.k,  Dominion Minister of Labor, has been  asked by Senator Templeman to take  steps to set*je jtbp .coal miners' strike in  East Kootenay by arbitration, if possible. It is to be hoped that he will  be ir.et with consideration and fairness  to arrive at a satisfactory-adjustment  by both sides.  WHY THE COAL MINERS STRUCK.  List ol Orlevsnc^s Set Forth by Ihe Coal  Miners.  In connection with the strike of the  coal miners of the Crow's Nest Coal  company, last week, it is understood  that the men went out at seven o'clock  on Wednesday morning in all three  colleiies-��the Michel, Mnriissey and  Coal Creek, of which Fernie is the  centre. All these men woikcd for tht  Crow.'s Nest Pass Coal company. Tlu  strike has been threatened for som'  time, and the grievances of the men  are set forth as follows:  yj,st���The cutting of prices at Moi  rissey to 40 cents.  Second���The use of "McGintys" ai  Moi rissey.  Third--The employment of Chinese  at Michel.  Fourth���The scarcit) ,of  timber in  the mineE.  fifth���The non-recognition  of the  District Miners' Union.  The use of "McGintys"  has caused  a  great  deal   of protest.    These are  posts fixed at the top of inclines, around  which a cable is passed for drawing up  the cars    It is contended   that  these  involve great danger to the men; hence  this addition to the list of grievanceST  The District Miners' Union was organized to prevent the company  operating one or two mines, while the men  of the third were on strike. The measure was taken by   the  men  for iheir  protection, he��ce the  fifth   complaint,  that the Crow's  Nest Coal  company  will not lecognize their association  Phoenix Federal Labor Union   No. 155.

Thisf  criticism is the result entirely of ignorance, for, as a matter of fact, the objects of the association  h.aye  not yet  been stated, and it will remain with the  convention to outline a policy and de  termlne upon what steps'will be taken  to endeavor to biing about an improvement in conditions  and . piomote the  welfare of the n-.ining industry   of the  province.   -In fact, all that \\\e present  provincial executive e-ommittee  is attempting to do is to  bring  together a  representative" body   of  men, chiefly  practical   miners,   to   discuss among  themselves the needs of the mining industry,  A^ a meeting ofthe committee last  week it occurred to them that, as Vic.  torta has taken the matter up so enthusiastically aiid has enrolled j>o large a  number of members, if this city apr,  pointed delegates according to , the  number of its i^embei^hj|) rc��ll it might  be able to doinina't,e'��he meeting; consequently, a resolution was passed limiting the number of delates .appointed to attend tbe convention from Victoria nnd Vancouver to 20 respectively.

Review of London, England:  "It is easy to write disparaging le-  marks concerning Canadian mines in  the present unsatisfactory state of the  maiket, but the sweeping assertions of  the special mining commissioner of the  Economist in regard to the gold mines  of Canada, are, in our opinion, likely  to prove misleading to investors, and  will hardly add to the reputation of the  author of "The Gold Mines ol the  World." Mr. Curie would have us  believe that the Le Roi, Le Roi No. 2,  Rossiand, Great Western, Kootenay  and Ymir are "apparently valueless."  Had he stated that they were not al  present lemunerative to their shareholders, the statement wou'd be more  accurate. Concerning the four Ross-  1 iid mines, he saysj "It is a tale bf  two con upt men, que a promoter and  1 lie other a nianager."  I he Economist last week published  a letter taking exceptioi).tQ the remarks  of its mining commissioner, pointing  out that Uiitish Columbia at the present time stands at the parting of the  ways. She has passed successfully  through the troublous limes that all  mining countries experience at the outset, and her, c^ay of well-deserved prosperity,i? now at hand. Jn yiew of (his,  it is1 regrettable tha,t siich irusleading  and harmftil attacks shotild be so need  lessly ciiciliated Never was Hri'ish  Columbia so prosperous as at the present moment.

Instead of _olntr fof  the doctor, ��he fell asleep,  and dreamt that her son was ill, and'  that she was going for the doctor.  She  went first (In her dream) to the fcoufo  of the first physician In the town, bui, '  w_en   she   errived,    the   door   waai  crowded with a number of pale being*,  who were congregating* around It and ��  calling out to those within.  So tbe woman asked-them what they were, and  they said, 'We are the spirits of those '  who have been Idlled by tbe treatment  of  this  doctor,  and  we are come  to  make him our reproaches."   So the wo'- r  man was horrified, and hurried away  to the house of another doctor, but  there she found even more souls tbaii  before; and aC each house she went to  there were" more and more souls 'wh?  complained  of   the   doctors   who_ had ;  killed them.   At last sbe carrie'to the '  house of a very poor little doctor, who  Jived In a cottage in" a very narrow,  dirty street, and there were only two  souls lamenting.   'Ah!' she said, 'this 1a  the doctor for me; for, while the others  have killed so many, this'good man in '  all  the course of his. experience has  only sent two souls out of the world:'  So she wont in and said, 'Sir, I have  come to you because, of ��� your,..experience, because of your great and Just  reputation, to ask you- to heal my son.'  As she taikod of his great .reputation  the doctor looked rather surprised, and  at last lie said,  'Well,, madam, It "is'  very flattering, but It Is odd, that you  should haw beard so much of me, for  I have only been a doctor a week.', Ah!  then you may Imagine what the horror  of the'womar.. was���he nnd only been a  doctor a we#k/ and yet he had killed  two persons!   .   .   .   So she awoke, and  dhe did not to for a doctor at all, and  her son got perfectly well."���From "The  Story of My _lfe," by Augustus J. C.  Hare.  Building for The Ages*  TO illustrate the slow and painful  evolution of social progress,  Olive Schrelner, in a recent  article, uses the figure of cathedral-building. ' 3he says:  "He who to-day looks at some great  Gothic cathedral: in its final form aeema  to be looking at that which  might have been the dieam of  some single soul of genius, who,  waking in the morning, found the  dream a reality. But in truth its  origin was far otherwise. Ages elapsed  .from the time the first rough stone was,  laid as a foundation till the last aplria  and pinnacle were shaped, and . the  hand which laid ' the foundation-stone  was never the same as that which' set  the last stone upon the coping. .Generations succeeded one another, laboring  at gargoyle, rose-window and shaft,  and died, leaving the work; to others;  the first-master-builder who drew up  the first rough outline passed away  and was succeeded by others, and the  details of the work as completed bore  but faint resemblance to the work as he  devised It; no man fully understood'all  that others had done or were doing,  but each labored in his place, and the  work as completed had unity; .it expressed not the desire and necessity of  one mind, but of the unknown'human  spirit. And not less essential to the  existence of the building was the labor  of the humble workman who passed his  litem carving gargoyles and.shaping a  : few rose-windows, than that of the  loftiest master-builder who drew the  general outlines. And It was heroic;  for the master-builder who, though it  were but vaguely, had some Image of  what the- whole1 work would be when  the last atone was,laid upon the coping and the last spire raised, It was  easy to labor'with devotion and zeal���  though well he might know that the  placing of that last stone and the raising of thot last spire would not be'his,  and.that the building In Its full beauty,  and strength he should never see. But  for the journeyman laborer who carried  on his stones, and month by month  tolled, carving at his own little gargoyle or shaping the ��-*.reries In hla  little oriel window, without any.vision,  of what the whole would be when completed, it was not so easy; nevertheless, it was through the conscientious  labors of such alone, through -their  heaps of chipped and spoiled stones,  their half failures and almost blind  successes, that at the last' the' pile  could be reared in its strength and  beauty."  Vaccination de Rigueur.  THE epidemic of smallpox In London, England, has, it seems,  given rise to a. curious innovation. . Invitations are sent out  for tea, on which It is'stated  -here < will be���not dancing, but vac-.  :ination. The sterner sex is represented by a doctor; tea Is served at  four o'clock, and at five vaccination  begins. Whether this be true or not,  they went one better in France a, few  years ago. There was art outbreak of  smallpox In Paris, and a leader of  fashion was struck with the Idea of  getting all her friends vaccinated. "She  issued lnvltatloriS'���t'o a; ball, which  ended In a superb cotillion. She informed her guests that the latter would  contain an entirely new figure. It did:  The men had to submit to vaccination  on the arm; the women on the calf of  the leg. This Is how it was carried  out: After a "tour-de-valse," each man  brought his partner to the doctor. She  gracefully raised her skirt; there was  a little cry on the part of the patient,  another "tour-de-valse," and she was  re-condueted to her place. .The ,men  had lo take off their coats and display  a corner of their biceps. From this it  will be seen that-England has not the  monopoly of-eccentric ideas.  An Embarrassing Honot.  The obsequiousness of those who hopi  to advance themselves by being exceedingly polite to their superiors In  office sometimes assumes an amusing  aspect  A certain head of a government department was Invited, says a dally paper, to dine with others at a table with  a cabinet minister. During the dinner  the former, who happened to be placed  between a. door and a window, and had  ?ald nothlntr at all, began to sneeze. ,  "Are you taking cold. Mr. Brown?"  ���slifd tlie cabinet minister. ���'  "i believe I have that honor and  pleasure," s.nswered Mr. Bros/a, low*  ing very respectfully.  ng  is the lever that nvives the business world ��� so tbe men who'  really know, who are conspicuous for their success, assert.
