All of the deceased were  for many jtears in the employ of the  Granby and were counted amongst  the  most experienced of the com.  pany's servants.    The scene  of the  the town  and  in  a very short time  ajarge   number  of spectators  had  asssembled    and   occupied  vantage  points where for hours throughout  the day and   far into the night they  watched, many with tearful interest,  the  strenuous  .work   of the   mine  foVce   under    the   direction   of  the  superintendent, Chas.

The alarm was immediately raised,  but to   even the most inexperienced  eye it   was  seen   at "a   glance 'that  the work   of extricating-the- bodies  would  consume    many   hours  and  entail a" tremendous  amount-of la-  bor,   and' while   there   were   those  who   professed    to ���a  .hope   that  matters   might   not be   as   bad   as  they looked, the .chances  of any of  the   men   being, found , alive   were,  to say  the  least,'extremely remote.  As soon as it   was   definitely decided by a  roll call that there were  ' three of the  shift  missing, as many  men as could   be conveniently used  the evidence of witnesses the jury  handed ina verdict of ''unavoidable  accident," which the coroner stated  was tantamount to "a verdict of  "accidental death." \  Thursday was a  day  of funerals.  Business was more or. less suspended   and   the  day shift  of the mine  ceased   work   at   11   o'clock.     The  service over   the   remains   of J. F.

Smyth,   for the past  nine  months connected with the staff of  this  paper,   severed his  connection  with    Phoenix     on   Saturday   last  when he left to take over the editorship  of  the  Similkameen   Star   at  Princeton.     Almost   from   the  time  of his   appearance   in our midst his  affability   and genuine good nature  asserted itself, while in lodge circles  his   advent   was   looked   upon as a  distinct  acquisition  to the fraternal  membership   in   this   city.     Ruskin  once wrote that "it was a good and  safe rule  to sojourn   in  every place  as  if you   meant  to   spend   the remainder of your   life there," and it  would   almost  seem   as   if our late  colleague   had   made   a practice  of  carrying the  maxim  around in his  hat,   with   the   result   that   general  regret is expressed in all quarters at  his   departure for   other  spheres of  work.  The country served by the "Star"  embraces a huge area, the potentialities of which are as yet undreamed of. But it is perhaps in  its mining possibilities that its chief  claim to outside attention will lie,  the development of which we understand, is in future to claim much  of the future attention of the Star's  new editor.  First Case in New Court  Cell No. 1, lower berth, in the  brand new provincial lock-up was  booked on Friday of last week by  Provincial Constable Stanfield. The  occupant, one Pete Grekul, was  arrested on the complaint of Mrs.  Sam Krewenezuk, who charged him  with the crime of creating a disturbance outside of the Krewene-  zuk's mansion on Spion Kop. The  evidence which required the services  of an interpreter, savored strongly  of a page from Zola and disclosed a  state of affairs highly discreditable  to all concerned. In fact it almost  seemed at one stage of the hearing  as if one .of the parties was laying  himself open to a charge of white  slavery with the- addition of blackmail. Police Magistrate J. Mulligan  eventually dismissed the case and  mulcted the complainant with the  costs of the court. It was the first  hearing held in the new building.  H. JE. Tatham.      I den creek territory.

Yet this is exactly what is proposed  in   regard to   Ireland.   .But  this is  hot all.'  A clause in the bill stipulates that the English and Scottish  taxpayer shall be assessed annually  to the amount of ten million dollars  for  ten  years  for  the  purpose   of  keeping the  new Irish   parliament  out of the bankruptcy court.    This  too is in addition to the millions of  dollars they have already furnished  to the fund for the purpose of buying out the  Irish landlords and establishing a peasant proprietorship  in the Emerald isle.  To  pursue   the    matter further.  Do  Canadians realize" that Ireland  every  oil-using  nation   under    the  sun,  is  the latest achievement  of  Mr.   Winston  Churchill.,   Finding  that the oil interests continued to  increase their charges to the Navy,  and that the price has just doubled  since  the fleet1 begat,  to use  oil,  the home authorities began to sit up  and take serious notice of a situation  that had become simply intolerable.  John Bull is a patient apd long-suffering creature in commerical matters,  but he jibes at being ruthlessly plundered by monopolists.     To defeat  the trusts,  therefore;   the government  decided   to acquire a controlling interest  in   the  Anglo-Persian  oil company,   which   has    secured  extensive  concessions  over a huge  tract of territory in Persia,  chiefly  lying in the neutral zone, but   overlapping into both the Russian and  British spheres  of influence/     The  center  of the   oil-yielding area lies  many  miles inland  in  the  neutral  territory, and a pipe line carries the  oil to  a  huge   refinery , near   tlie  coast,   passing  through   a  country  inhabited    by   more    or  less   wild  tribes.  Into this company the government proposed to invest $11,000,-  000, of wnich $10,000,000 would be  spent in expanding the operations  of the concern, while debentures l to  the value of an additional.$10,000,-  000 are to v be bought. To ratify  this agreement, Winston Churchill  sought, and obtained the sanction of  Parliament.

Strong objection has been taken  by the French government to the  obnoxious methods 'employed by  United States treasury detectives in  Paris. It is strongly suspected  that they are in the habit of bribing  the clerks in the fashionable millinery and jewellery stores to disclose  the prices paid for goods by American purchasers.
