Agent Dead-  Husband Badly Injured-  Baby Saved.  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, JUNE  14,  1913  The   lower  railroard ' yard of the  C.P.R.   company,    at   Greenwood,  was the scene of a dreadful accident  on Wednesday evening, resulting in  the death  of Mrs.  Jos.   Davidson  and serious   and   possibly   fatal   injuries to her husband, the company's  agent at Midway.     The unfortunate  couple,   with    their   two    year  old  baby, were travelling to Greenwood  on a motor propelled speeder and in  an effort to reach   the  depot  before  the ore train,    the   speeder  collided  with tremendous force  into  engine  No 3450, which had just set a train'  of ore out on the siding.   .  The danger was seen  by  the engineer, who applied  every pound of  air in his effort to avert an accident,  but  although   the   locomotive   was  brought to a  stop  inside of twelve  feet the impact threw the couple out  oh the track and the engine passed  over them, severing the agent's right  arm and one of his wife's legs.   The  injured were, hurried with  all speed  to the Sacred Heart hospital, where  Mrs,   Davidson   succumbed    about!  three  hours  after.     Her husband's  case is  regarded  as very critical as  in addition   to the   loss of his'arm,  he sustained   a fracture of   three of  his ribs.     The injuries to   the  baby  are trivial, it being thought that the  mother   threw-   it    off   the   speeder  when she realized the danger.  Mr. Davidson has been -in the  service of the company for some  years and is^ very "popular among  his brother employees as well as the  general public to whom the news  of his affliction and sad bereavement will come as a severe shock.  Dunedin to Make' Shipment  Ore averaging  $180 to the ton is  now being taken out and sacked for  shipment from   the   Dunedin   mine,  four miles from  Sandon,   says  Jas.  Marshall,    one   of the   co-owners.  "This summer,   with ordinary luck,  we expect to ship in   the   neighborhood of 80 tons to the Consolidated  company's smelter at Trail."   Word  was received recently that   the   trail  is now open for  horses,'the   latter  being the only  method   possible  as  rawhiding would necessitate  a continuous, shipment  in   order to keep  the track open.      Operations at the  mine have been  seriously hampered  the past winter,by   reason  of  snow  slides, one  of which   damaged   the  blacksmith    shop  and  caused    the  death of one   of  the  miners.

The  game was   of an unusually stubborn character, the first  goal being landed by the representatives of the big  mine just a minute after the kick-off.   After this the  honors   were   fairly  even   up   to a  minute before   the   finish, when the  Mother   Lode   bunch    cut   another  notch.     Final result:  Mother Lode,  2; Rawhide, nil.

Although  a large expenditure was  made,   for  some reason it was never made   use  of, the plant having Iain inoperative  since that time.  Returns From the Coast  Geo. L.

Six Chinamen were arrested,  and each were fined $35 and costs.  One was caught in the act of smoking opium. The usual outfit was  confiscated.

The Liberals have hitherto waved airily aside the  contention  that an   emergency exists, but does  any Liberal, in the light of what has  now occurred, imagine for one minute that the British government and  a   Liberal  one. at that, would   wilfully  impose   an   additional   tax  of  $35,000,000 on  their already overburdened people simply and purely  for the  fun of the thing, and can it  be     possible     that    the   Canadian  Liberals are taking any stock in the  contention of our former minister of  defence, that we are relying on the  Monroe   Doctrine   and   the   United  States    navy   for   our   protection.  Canadian opinion will  surely revolt  at such   a   suggestion   and  yet the  statement was uttered in all sinceri  ty  by Laurier's minister of  militia  during one   of  his   speeches   in the  House of Commons.  Disallows French Novels���But  John Bull is an inconsistent old  fellow in some respects. He rolls  his eyes in pious horror and  sternly forbids the publication in  England of certain English translations of French novels. He, however, sanctions the publication and  sale of certain literature only to be  obtained from the Suffragette headquarters and bookstalls, the contents of which, according to several  well-known English editors, are  absoluteiy unprintable. It has also  been declared by the same authority  that if the tenets of this literature  advocates were adopted, it would  throw the British people back into  that condition of affairs which  marked the decadent days of the  Roman Empire. There is mtich  more behind the Suffragette movement than appears on the surface  and the sooner men and women re-  ailze it the better it will be for  society at large.  There is no ground for the apprehension that unless a general  election can be brought about, Hon.  Sydney Fisher's occupation will be  gone. He can go back to the land.

The acquisition of the territory is  absolute and complete in every way  ���economically," sociologically and  commercially. It has been accomplished by the ceaseless inpour of  Orientals of both sexes, by the acquirement of land, by the extension  of local business and by the sheer  dynamic force of numbers.  Politically, Hawaii is American  territory. In point of fact, it is  known to those cognizant of military  conditions, and the government at  Washington best of all, to be  strategically Japanese, as it . has  been for many years.���Ex.  ty.

SYNOPSIS OF COAL  MINING REGULATIONS  Coal ruining rights of the Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not  more than 2,560 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application for a lease must be made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which thc rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land .must  be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsur-  veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked out by the applicant  ��� himself,'"  Each application must be accompanied by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the merchantable  output of the mine at the rate of live  cents per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish the Agent with sworn returns  accounting for the full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If the coal mining  rightStare not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once  a'year..  From the evidence introduced,   it  appears that Mr. Elder was arrested  April 24, when   he   suggested   to  a  member of the mounted police, force  at Okotoks tha* they turn a prisoner  ������&��'?? over to him and   he   vvoiild  take care of him.    The man in question, G. Hogge, had been drinking  and was under arrest  at   the   time.  Hogge was an employee of Elder's,  and it was the intention of the   man  who was before the supreme court toj  I have taken him to  the camp of the  Black Diamond coal mine and have  him sobered   up.     When   the    evidence for the prosecution  had   been  presented, his lordship informed the  attorney for the defence that he need  not produce any evidence on   behalf  of his  client  and   discharged-   the  accused.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rate of $10.00 an acre.  For full    information    application  should be made to the Secretary of the  ����<3partment of the Interior, Ottawa,  i>6> to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Do-  ^tninion Lauds.  mmr-     .':-���'..

Miss Kathleen Mackenzie, daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Mackenzie, arrived in town on Saturday last from  Kamloops, where she holds an appointment as ward matron at the  Royal Inland hospital.

Mrs. Larsen and daughter, Frances,  left during the week for Christina,  where Mrs. Larsen will have charge of  the dining room establishment of the  popular Christina lake hotel, for which  the new proprietor, Elmer Ness, has  been recently granted a licence.

Mrs.  McKenzie left on Friday's train. Mr.  and Mrs. Clark resided in Phoenix a  few years ago.  The Rev. A. T.  always feel uncomfortable in the company of landed magnates. Victoria  looks beautiful just now and I was  glad to get back. We were all sorry  to hear of Andy's (Fletcher) death."  M.P.P. Visits Phoenix  Ernest Miller, the representative  of this district in the Provincial  legislature, paid a short business  visit to Phoenix this week.

School Tenders Called For  The attention of those interested  is directed to the advertisement appearing in the present issue of this  paper calling for tenders for the  installation of a heating plant in  the public school, together with  various important alterations to the  plumbing system.  Australia is considering a scheme  to induce time expired soldiers of  the British army, who have served  in India, to take up land in that  commonwealth.  THE CAUSE  \;mm^OJ^:^^::^awi��io^  If you are afflicted with boils, pimples, scrofula, salt  rheum,.eczema, or any other indication of impure blood, don't  waste time and money in external remedies for the treatment of  these symptoms. '-���"������^:.-'.'  YOU CAN  AVOID ALL THESE THINGS  BY TAKilMG  NYALS* BLOOD  PURIFIER  -Sometimes there are no outward symptoms of impure  blood, but instead there is a feeling of langour, a run down  listless condition, loss of appetite,���showing that the organs and  tissues of the body are not being ���nournished as they should be.  The use of Nyal's Blood Purifier is followed by the  most pleasing results. The boils heal up and disappear; the  skin becomes soft and smooth again, instead of harsh and  scaly, or pimpled. The liver is stimulated, the blood enriched,  and soon the whole system feels the beneficial effect of this  excellent remedy. '���.���:..������<  Phoenix Drug Company  'Phone 16. T. S.

"Wednesday evening the local Scandinavian society gave another of their  very successful dances in their, lodge  room, on Ironsides avenue, last Wednesday. The Ironsides oichestra,  whose services appear to be in popular  demand just now, furnished the music  for what all present have described as  a very pleasant gathering.  Boys who smoke cigarettes are like  maggotty apples. They drop'long be  fore the harvest time. They rarely  make failures in after -life, because  they never have any afterlife. The  kid who commences to smoke before  the age of seventeen never reaches the  ���life of the world. When other boys  are taking hold of the world's work  he is concerned with the doctor, the  overtaker and lastly the undertaker.
