Logan     was    injured  severely about the head and face.  One eye is probably destroyed,  but there is a chance of saving the  sight of the other. Dr. Millar took  him to Spoka.ie Wednesday and  placed him under the care of an eye  specialist.  The men had loaded a' round of  holes and spit the fuse, but in the  reports that followed they found  that one of the holes failed to go off.  They waited a considerable length  of time and then went back with the  expectation of finding a missed hole.  Just as they got back the shot went  off.  Johnson leaves a wife and four  children. He was 39 years of age  and was born in Sweden. 'Logan i*.  about 24 years of age and unmarried. Both men belong to the  Phoenix Miners' Union, and Johnson was also a member of the  Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship  Society. The funeral of Johnson  was held Thursday afternoon- under  the auspices of the two organizations. Interment was in the Phoe-  -nix cemetery, and tbe service was  conducted by Rev. J. R. Munro of  the Presbyterian church.

Preparation is under.way for the  picnic which will be held at Phoenix on Wednesday, June' 24th, to  commemorate the six hundredth  anniversary of the battle of Bannockburn. In the neighborhood of  'Bannockburn, a village in Scotland  on the Banoock river, a branch of  the Forth, on the 24th of June,  1314, was fought the memorable  battle which secured the independence of Scotland, and established  Bruce upon the throne. In 1871 the  population of Bannockburn was  2,564, principally employed in the  manufacture of (.weeds and carpets,  Near We*^fo**hi^.,af? tr^mebtr of��he  ��!bore /stone"'.m ^wtoich'j''the '.'royal  standard"was' ^placed Jis*,still   to/ be  seen ' *   ''-   �����   The Empress of Ireland is lying  in 20 fathoms of water.

Two  more drills will be put at work and  an increase in workingmen to speedily bring the positive ore up to 20,-  000,000 tons.  Wm. Thomlinson, of Silverton  has gone to Vancouver. He has  received an appointment from the  Dominion, government to secure  specimens of minerals of the province for the Panama Exposition it  San Francisco. "~^*  A body of ore 24 ft. wide by 30 ft.  high has been reached on the No. 6  level of the Queen mine at Salmo,  according to E. V. Buckley, manager of the mine. The body is of  high grade-ore and Mr. Buckley is  very pleased with the strike, which  is at present being worked.  Work in the Utica mine near  Kaslo has been suspended' for a  short time while the wagon road, to  the mine is being repaired and other  work necessary to expediate shipping is being conducted, according  .to C. F. Caldwell, of Kaslo. Mr,  Caldwell expects everything to be  ready so that shipping can be commenced about June 10.  Considerable' interest has been  aroused by the discovery of free  milling ore in the   1200-foot level of  Next week will be  a  the War Eagie mine.

He expects to put one or  two teams to hauling lead ore for  shipment to Trail, soon.  On the Silver Standard mine at  Hazelton, the shaft das been sunk  to the three hundred and seventy-  one foot level and.now a drift north  and south of the shaft is being run.  After drifting a short distance a  cross cut the vein will be run to  open the ore bodies at the low level.  Anothr tunnel is being run to open  up the No. 1. The tunnel sight is  on the new wagon road.  Charles A. Banks, manager of the  Jewel mine at Greenwood and representative of the English company  owning the Idaho-Alama mines,  with Mrs. Banks, has been in New  Denver for the past week. Mr.  Banks has been inspecting the are representing  Idaho-Alamo with a view to resum- Lodge No. 17  ing operations there in the near  future. The property was last  worked under a lease by a Spokane  company and closed down last  November.  The B. C Copper company is  making preparation for an aggressive policy, which will include the  equipment of the Eureka mine east  of Nelson, and the equipment with  plant and concentrator at Princess  Camp in the Similkameen, thus ensuring new sources of ore supply  for the company's smelter at Greenwood. The company has also had  new propertiesin Kamloops andother  memorable  one in the history of Odd Fellowship in   British   Columbia.     It will  mark- the,fiftieth anniversary of  the  institution of the order in this province,   and   the   event  will   be  celebrated in the city of Victoria  oov a  most elaborate * scale.

The train  under the new schedule leaves Nel-,  so1, for Midway on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and the 'return trip from Midway to Nelson is  made on- .Tuesdays, Thursdays and  Saturdays.      The   mail" service  to  Stockholders of the  British Columbia Copper company- who have  elected not to exchange their shares  for those  of the Canadian Copper  company, are organizing to .'protect  their rights.     A  circular letter has  been  sent  to  the  shareholders announcing that the committee is calling for a  voluntary assessment of  two cents a share to create a  fund  to  put  the  organization on a  permanent basis.  The circular says:  "The purposes of the alliance arc  to promote and safeguard the stockholders who'have not   deserted  th��  British Columbia  Copper  Co.,    for  the Canada Copper corporation;   to  unite the vote .of the  members   on ���.  any matters that may come  before  the stockholders'   meetings;  to devise  ways  and  means  to properly  protect the interests  of the British  Columbia stockholders, and to  demand that they have equal rights in  the distribution   of future earnings  of the  company  with   those    who  have associated themselves with the  Canada corporation."

Wednesday evening the bachelors  of Phoenix maintained their splendid  reputation as hosts, the occasion  being the holding of their annual  ball. The Miners' Union hall was  the scene of the festivities. The  attendance was a record breaker,  there being fully 200 people present.  An orchestra of nine pieces supplied  the best of music. It was made up  of Albert Biner, Chas. Olson and  Chas. McKay, violins; Mrs. Knight  and Miss Elmgren, piano; Frank  Ohman, cornet; Al Almstrom,  clarinet; Fred Carlson, trombone,  and E. Engen, drums. Many cities  of ten thousand of a population can  not boast of a better orchestra than  Phoenix has. At midnight bachelors in white coats and aprons  served the ice cream and cake, and  Charles Hufty saw that the thirsty  were well supplied with circus  lemonade.      Everyone  had   a good  time.  The   bachelors  wish   to thank all  those ladies who   so   kindly   contributed cakes for the luncheon.  iorriii, Thompson & Co,  New Lock-Up  A plumber and an electrician  of Vancouver are here and at work  on the new lock-up. The lathing  and plastering work is well in hand.  It will^-nbt now be long until the  building will be ready to be occupied, probably by the end of this  month.  Hindus on Hunger Strike  Affairs on the steamer Komagata  Maru at Vancouver are now ablaze.  In the last few days provisions have  been running short. The crew of  the ship, of course, has abundant  supplied, but the Hindu passengers,  it is said, have been put on short  rations lately.  It is said they have no money left  to buy fresh stores and it is reported that the master of the vessel and  the agents are unwilling to  furnish  them.  With this condition of affairs staring them in the face, Gurdit Singh  and his followers held a meeting  and decided to go on a hunger  strike. The statement has been  made that the Hindus on board ha've  had nothing, to eat for two days except the fishthey catch.  Gurdit Singh has sent telegrams  ashore which were despatched. ���  They were addressed to the King,!  the governor-general and the vice-;  roy of India, stating that the Hin-j  dus were starving and asking for,  help. A hunger strike will provide j  the immigration officials with aj  great deal of trouble. They can-j  not be allowed to starve, and forci- j  bly feeding them would be out of;  the question.    - j  'Phone 56  P. O. Box 309,  mo.

Among the most noted passengers on boaJd the ill-fated Empress  of Ireland were Lawrence Irving,  the   famous   actor,   and   his    wife.  F. E. Abbott of Toronto said he  first saw Irving in the passage. He  was placing 'a life preserver on his  wife, and then he practically carried  her upstairs. I asked if I could  help, and Irving said, "Look after  yourself first, old man, but God  bless you all the same."  Abbott 'said he left the two, man  and wife, struggling. Abbott got  on deck and dived overboard. He  caught hold of a piece' of timber  and then looked around. Irving by  this time was on the deck. He was  kissing his wife, and as the ship  went down they were clasped in  each other's arms.  Oh, That Way  It's such a silly superstition to  be always picking up pins!

FRATERNAL ORDER  OF EAGLES  Empress of Ireland  One thousand and thirty-two persons lost their lives when the  limpress of Ireland was rammed  and 'sunk in the St. Lawrence.  Figures made public by the C.P.R.  owners of the lost boat, showed  that of the 1,387 persons on board,  355 were rescued, as follows: First  cabin passengers, 18; second and  third cabins, 131; crew 206.  When the ship sailed she carried  87 first-class passengers, 153 second, and 715 third,  and   a crew   of  432. The wrecked vessel carried  one of the largest mails sent from  Canada to Great Britain this year  and even should the vessel be raised  this will be a total loss. The mail  included a very large amount of registered matter, much of it doubtless of a very valuable character,  and it will be some days before a  full report can be made out on this  portion of the consignment. None  of the mail is insured. In the  cargo was $1,000,000 in silver bars  being shipped from Cobalt to England.  ihave^ never ..fail ";"to.;<:atcK.

The attainment of success (and by  that is meant the. gaining of a responsible position in life, providing a generous income) is seldom a matter of mere  "luck." The successful man of today  is he who in the past prepared himselj  to size opportunities as they presented  themselves;'his success is the result of  forethought and deliberation. He has  considered carefully what would be the  most favorable and congenial road to  success for him, and he has devoted his  best energies in that direction. Thus,  the real secret of success "lies in being  prepared for opportunity," and this will  be as true in years to come, as it is today. Think these words over, and apply  them to yourself.'
