WM. WATSON AND J. SALMON VICTIMS  Drilled In la ��� Mined Hole ��� Wittoti Killed  lastanlly, WHIe Salmon Died Ibe Next  Day���Result of Coroner's Inquest.  Tuesday morning early another terrible accident happened at the Gianby  mines, by which Itvo well known and  popular miners lost their lives���William Watson and John Salmon. Apparently the cause was dtilling into a  missed hole.  At one o'clock Tuesday morning, as  the shift was coming out of thej^fp.** i  tunnel at the Knob Hill, the shift'bbss,  Geotge Catlnach, noticed that two of  the men were missing. An immediate  search was made, and they were found  by their machine, Watson dead and  tenibly ciushtd and mangled, and Salmon only a little better off. The cat'se  was a*-patent to all. They were taken  out of the tunnel, and Salmon was  sent to the Phoenix General Hospital  al once. He had both eyesdestioyed,  a leg crushed, an arm broken, and a  number of other damages. The best  of attention was given him, and he  lingered till ten o'clock Wednesday  morning, when he passed away.  Watson was a young'man of abot't  22 years, coming originally from, Bed-  deck, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, but  had been in this camp for a couple  of years or more. He had a brother  al Covert's ranch, near Grand Forks,  and his father lives at Ferguson, a little  town near Republic, Washington. Both  weie notified and arrived'here Tuesday  night.  The funeral was held the next day  at noon, Rev. V. M. Ptirdy officiating,  and it was probably one of the largest  attended funetalsever held in Phoenix.  The lemains were taken to Republic  lhat day for burial, the funeral services  here having been held at Miners' Union  hall under the auspices of the.Knights  of Pythias, of which Watson was a  member.  Coroner's Jury Verdict  Coroner Foster held an inquest over  Watson's remains Tuesday- evening,  the jury being composed of W. E  Dunn, foreman; A. Grant, E. H. Mortimer, J. C. McRae, A. Gregg and W.  Rogers. As Salmon died from the  same accident, it is not thought nee  essary to hold another inquest.  The verdict of the coroner's jury  was that Watson came to his death by  accident, and that no blame is due to  any one for the latality.  Salmon was about 35. years of age,  and a native of Ireland, although he  also came to the'west fiom Nova Scotia:  His uncle, Martin Salmon, of Rossland, arrived Tuesday night late, in  tin.e to see the poor fellow before he  passed-away.-'.��� .The funeral was held  yesterday morning, Father Bedard  officiating, and interment was had in  the cemetery at Greenwood. Salmon  was a member of the local lodge of  the Fraternal Order of Eagles.  The funeral procession was another  long one yesterday, being headed by  Biuer's brass band playing a dead  march. At Miners' Union Ijall president Fleniing, of the Ragle's, read'the  burial service of ihe order. Some 40  Eagles accompanied the remains to  Greenwood, where the cortege Was  met by about 30 Greenwood Eagles.  Both tlie victims were .members of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, and  both had been working in this camp  for a long time, comparitively speaking.  Both were held in high esteem by those  who knew them best. The'Granby  mines were closed for the funerals, the  local officials attending, in each case.  TAKEN OUT S&tfo IN ORB.

Paul Johnson  Watched.  Last Saturday afternoon ihe employees of the British Columbia Copper  company's smelter at Greenwood presented Paul Johnson, E. M., with a  gold watch, chain and charm on the  occasion of his tetirement .from the  management of the smelting works.  Inside the watch case the following inscription was engraved: "Presented  to Paul Johnson by the employees of  the smelting department ��f 'he B- C.  Copper Co., Greenwood, B.C., March  t, 1903." Mr. George B. Paul, smelter accountant, in making the presentation on behalf of the donors, in a few  well chosen words expressed the high  esteem in which they held Mr. Johnson,! their regret at his leaving the  Greenwood smelter, and. their earnest  hope that a long and still .more successful career as a metallurgist of high  standing lay before him,.  Bo*j**ht the Company Stores.  K. Wood, who has been the store  keeper at the Morrissey mines, and A.

New Eholt School House,  This week the painters have been  putting on the finishing touches to the  new schoolhouse at Eholt, just bein?  completed by Bunting & Dempsey,  the contractors, for the - government.  The building is a one room structure,  and well adapted for the pu/pose \n-.  tended, being constructed according to  the standing plans, of trie' government  for such buildings. Miss Horton, the  teacher, will occupy the building with  her flock of little ones next Monday  morning.'  Will Stay la Ibe Boundary.  Robert Anderson, foreman at the B.  C. mine, in Summi' camp, states that  the. report of last week that he was  about to accept a position w\th the L.e  Roi mine, ��� at Rossland, is an error.  He has no such intention, whatever,  but expects to stay with the Boundary  mines���for the time being, anyway,  Tuesday night the Great Northern  train brought back delegates Rumberger, . Heidman, Williams and Hessel-  wood, the Phoenix representatives at  the Provincial Mining Convention at  Victoria. They expressed themselves  as not a little pleased at the manner in which the association had  started out/ and seem to think that it  can be made of no small amount of  benefit to the mining industry of the  province. Mayor Rqmberger said that  the people of Victoria were the personification of hospitality, and did everything possible to make the stay of the  visitors pleasant and .profitable.  Probably the most important thing  accomplished at this meeting was  thought to be the appointment of a committee to inquire into the Fernie strike,  and see if an* adjustment of the difficulty could not be had. Premier Prior  stated to the convention that the government would pay the expenses of such  a delegation, and Mr. Tonlcin,' manager of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,  who was a delegate fiom Fernie, said  that he favored the commission, and  would assist them in every way in his  power.  The personnel of the committee,  representing labor, capital, and the business elements, was as follows:  W/G."Gaunce, Greenwood; F. Keffer, Greenwood; and A. C. Flumerfelt,  Grand Forks, representatives of capital;  and H. Seaman, Rossland; M. McAn-  drews, Kaslo; and Chris Foley, Vancouver, representatives of labor, together with chairman John Keen, of Kaslo  The above committee is now in Fernie, and good results are anticipated  from its investigations.

Last Monday night the eighth semiannual meeting of the Kettle River  and South Okanogan Pioneers was held  in this city, concluding with a banquet  at the Bellevue hotel. The officers of  the organization elected for the ensuing  year were as follows:  ��� President, T. J. Hardy, of Phoenix;  vice-presidents, P. T. McCallum,' of  Grand Forks; J. R. Jackson, of Midway; William Nelson, of Greenwoodj  H. Cameron, of Camp McKinney; and  R. L.Cawston, of Keremeos: secretary,  R. R Gilpin, of Grand Forks; treasurer,  James Kerr, of Gieenwood. It was  decided to hold trie noKt meeting at  Carson next September.  The organization consists of men  who came into this country by or before 1894, and these reunions of the  old pioneers are occasions of much  good fellowship to the old timers.  'They also look after any member who  may happen to be in want, and at  present "Jolly Jack," orjohn 'Thornton, who came into the Boundary 41  years ago, is the only one so situated  He is-living in his cabin not far from  Greenwood.

Last week Friday the Grand Forks  junior hockey boys came up to play a  return game with the lads of Phoenix,  and they came determined to win this  time, as they lost the first game. However, they were doomed to disappointment, the result being 3 to t, in lavor  of Phoenix. In the hour each side  secured two goals, and another 15 minutes play was decided on, when Phoenix  got  another  goal   and   won.  The Grand Forks boys who played  were as follows: Birbeck, McDougall,  Mitchem, Taylor, G. Hay, E. Hay  and Saunders. The following were on  the Phoenix team: G. Biner, Mc-  Auliffe, Hudson, A. Biner, J. Pierce,  Trainer, arid' McKelvie. Geo. Cole  was referee, and Walter Cook and Jas,  Jenkins were goal umpires. 'This was  probably one of the final games of the  season.  Mr. Flnucaoe Secured II.  It has finally been announcsd, as  expected, that Francis J. Finucane,  for four jears the well known manager  of the Greenwood branch of the Bank  of Montreal, is the manager of the  braneh of that bank now being established in Spokane. 'The appointment  is in the way of promotion, for no  western branch of this bank is more  important than this new branch is destined to become.  Mr. Finucane has had a long training in banking in the west, and is thoroughly familiar with the mining districts. His many friends in the Boundary are pleased at his advancement,  .although regtetling to lose him from  this section,  M. Lehman.  Delegated Will Report Monday,  'The Phoenix delegates will report  from the convention to a general meeting of the local branch, which will be  held in the ground floor storeroom oi  Miners' Union hall next Monday evening. A full attendance of those interested is requested by the officers of the  local association.  C. P. R. Making Belter Time.  Since the East Kootenay coal miners' strike, the C. P. R. has been forced to get its supply of coal for use on  the Boundary railway from the coast  collieries. Of course, this is a longet  haul, but there is one decided .advantage,' that being that the coal is of a  much superior quality to thai furnished  the railway by the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co. 'l'he difference is maiked,  and the trainmen notice how much  more readily steam is made with the  new coal than with the old. As a le-  sult, schedule time can be made much  easier than before.  What is believed to be a step for'- !  ward in the settlement of the coal tnin-   '  ers' strike in East Kootenay was made  this week when a special committee of  six, two each from the ranks of capital,  labor and' general business,   was ap-   ���  pointed by the Provincial Mining  Association   at Victoria, to  proceed to  Fernie, and offer their good "offices tci-.  wards an adjustment  . .'7   .  While this-committee has no power  beyond that given it by each party to  the strike, Manager Tonkin will accept  its decision, it is said', and the men are  also likely to do so. At any rate, its  work, if allowed to go to work at all,  will tend towards clearing up th'e Matters in dispute, and bring it much nearer a settlement." ���  Coast Coke Arrives  The first'installment of coke from  the Vancouver Island collieries arrived  at the Granby smelter this week, being a few cars, the advance, shipment, " '  as it were. More is expected daily, as  the order placed was for 200 tons  per  day.   This means that the C. P. R.  -. ."   ��� '     .I  must place an extra  freight  train   on  this coke run exclusively for the pres^-  ent.  'Two furnaces are now in blast at the  ._,'  Granby works, and as  soon   as more    ���  coke comes .the,other, two wjjl be heat-     .  ed up'.    The Boundary Falls smelter is    .  still being   operated,  but  cannot  last  long- unless  coke  arrives,   while  the',/  Mother Lode plant at  Greenwood is-,  still cold..  C. P. R. Employees on Strike.  'The C. P. R. is now in the midst"bf  a strike with the United "Brotherhood  of Railway Employees, which includes  the freight clerks and freigh   handlers  on the system.  It began at Vancouver,  where business   of this kind  is, at'a  standstill, and has spread to the Koote-'  nays, the men now being out at Nelson,  as well as two at Eholt, with others ex-'  pected to follow soon.  .    The men claim that the Cause is the  discharging of men   belonging   to the  order, and that no increase of wages is  asked for, or anything of that kind.  'The-passenger:��� service is not yet affected, but the freight service is necessarily in bad shape.  Chinese Head Tax to be $500.  It is announced from- Ottawa that,  yielding lo Senator Templeman^ representations, the government has  promised legislation at the forthcoming  session increasing the head tax on Chinese to $1,00.  A special measure dealing with Japanese immigration'is also for shadowed.  Charles A.< DesBits'ay, Great Northern right of way agent,'returned.to' the  camp last Thuisday.  The infant daughter of W.& Macy  was taken to the hospital this week,  suffeiing from I'l'.euiuoiiia. , Vi  New Branch Bflt*^.  'The Eastern 'VowushijW Hank, one  of the most con5ervaiive of the chartered banks of the Dominion, and which  for years has confined its business to'  the provinces of Quebec and British  Columbia, has this week opened another branch in the city of Winnipeg.  In addition to this, in the province of  Quebec additional branches have been  or are about to be opened at Farnhan,^  St. Joseph de'Beauc'e, and t\\p wore  branches in the cfty pf ^lantteal. It  vt*ou$ n��l be surprising to see this  bank start branches at the coast in  British Columbia in the near future.  Just now the only branches in this  province are located at Grand Forks  and Phoenix.  for lejflj, !>s reported to the Plioeuix Pioneer���  '   IQOO  Granby Mines, Phoenix      64,533  Snowshoe, "         2fl7  Brooklyn, "                160  Mother Lode, Peadwood      5,340  Sunset, "    Morrison, "    B.

Premier Prior told the mining association delegates that he fully intended to.do. away with the two per  cent .mineral .tax.

Why  his  continuation  of  last year's grumble should  have  been  so received   passes  comprehension; -if  he forbore to grumble there might be  room for a "mild sensation."

Mr.   Blackstotk   based  some very  pessimistic statements about the. War  Eagle Company upon very insufficient  data.    During the whole of 1902  the  War Eagle mine has been operated; its  expenses of  management   have   run  along as usual; in addition,  extensive  expeiiments in concentration have been  carried out; but it  only  shipped  ore  during about one-third  of the year.  Yet the ore it shipped paid the  whole  expenses of running the mine's all but  $35,350.���Victoria Colonist.  ���kgr  The International was first issued  in 1800, succeeding the  " Unabridged.'

C. ,**���*��� v.7-;-  One of the biggest mining deals effected in the Boundaiy district for  some time has just been accomplished  by the consolidation of ihe Morrison  Mines, Limited, owning the Morrison  mine, Deadwood camp, and the Athel  fjtau mine, Wellington cam]), owned by  the Athelstan Hold & Copper .Mining  Company, Limited, and located about  three miles east of IMioeiiix.  ': A joint meeting of'the shareholders  of both companies for the purpose of  ratilynig the teims will he held at  Grand Forks on March 23rd next.  The Athelstan company will go out-of  existence, its property passing into the  possession of the Morrison company.  The latter is incoiporated for $150,-  000 in shares ol the.par value of ten  cents each, and the Athelstaii has a  capital stock of $50,000, or one million  shares of the par value of five cents  each. According to the terms of the  deal, the shareholders of the Athelstan  will teceive shares on a certain basis in  the consolidated company. The capital slock will remain at $150,000, 01  one and one-half million shares at a  par value of ten cents each. No difficulty will be experienced in alloting  stock in the new company, as the old  Morrison company has nearly 700,000  shares intact in its treasury.  Development work en both properties, it is expected, will be started  shortly.  Fred H. Qliver, of Spokane, general  manager of the Moirison company, recently entered into a contract to supply  the Boundary Falls smeller with an initial-tonnage of 50,000 tons per'annum.  The Height and treatment rates are reported lo be;*only $1.75 per ton, probably the lowest figure ever quoted in  the Boundary district. The contract  throws a new light upon the question  of the remarkable cheapness of smelting low grade ores.  A taiiway spur is to be extended��� to  the Morrison mine by the C.P.R. The  Athelsten mini shipped about 1,750  tons of ore to the 'Trail and other smelters two or three years ago. Its stock  is very largely held in the Eastern  Townships, of Quebec.  W. J. Morrison and James Anderson, of Grand Forks, are Jarge shareholders in the Athelstan, as well as  John Mack, of Spokane.

N roc-ailing Incidents of international courtesy, when British and Am*  ericaqs have supported each'other-  a writer in the Boston "Transcrlptr*  tellg the following story which camo  from as American sailor who had  landed at a port in Chile:  The men' had ��� gone ashore and become somewhat hilarious, and one ot  the police officers, instead of warning  him not to make a noise In the street,  drew his sword and knocked him down ;  The American got up. and promptly  knocked the policeman down In return.  He was arrested, tried, and condemned  to be shot the next morning.  Mr. Lorlng, the American consul,  expostulated with the authorities, saying that It would be monstrous to put  a man to death for such an offence;  but they paid no attention to Urn, On  the day specified the-- sailor -wu  brought out and pinioned. In xeadlnesa  for execution. ���' ���'.,,  The English .consul, preparing ~ to  hoist the Union Jack, saw a crowd In  the field opposite, and realized that thtt  execution was about to take place. H�� -  rushed over to the American consul,  and cried: ��� ,  "Lorlng! You're not going to' let  Wiem shoot that man?"  "What can I do?" was the answer. "*I  have protested against It. I can do no  more."  "Give me your Bag!" cried the Englishman.  With the* two flags in his hand, he  ran to tbe field, elbowed his way  through the crowd and soldiery, and  readhed the prisoner, He folded the-  American flag about him, and laid the _  Union Jack over It. He stepped back,  and faced the officers and soldiery. <  "Shoot,  If  you   dare,"   he    shouted,  "through  the  heart of  England   and.  America!" '  The man was not shot.  ��P  The Old-Age Habit  OR why would I look old, darling? Answer me that, now!"  Mrs. Mullaly demanded. She  had been Honora Costlgan formerly, Mrs. Morris's loving and faithful house-girl; but that was twenty  years earlier. Mistress and maid had-  been at opposite ends of the earth In  the meantime, and the mistress, who-  had noticeably aged, felt almost a  shock of resentment at sight of the  plump and buxom Nora, she used to  know.  "Sure, I've had me bad times and me  good times, like the rest of the world,"  Mrs. Mullaly went on, reflectively.'  "But, glory be! before the bad times  quite finished me the good times always came again���me always leaving  the door ajar .to let them In, d'ye  mind?  "I am older; I feel It sometimes In me  poor back; but I'm not old. Whisper,  darling, it ain't the years that go over;  it's the heart that's Inside that changes  the faces of us.     ���     ;  " 'Twos a cousin of mine thait teached  me the truth of it, this long ago. She  begun to be old the day she was born,  did Katie, and when she was fourteen/ .  looking and acting twenty, 'twos. * ,  great help to her. But when she waa  twenty, 'I'm getting on!' says she.  When she was twenty-five, 'No,' says  she to Johnny Walsh, that came  a-courting, 'I'm too old and settled in  me habits to be marrying.' Then when  she was thirty nothing would do her.  but to get wld the old women and talk  of the time when she an*d they was  young.  "So the heart of her went Into the  face of her.   It did so!    I mind when-  she was thirty about and me over twenty, we went together one day to a big  new hotel to get work. , A good worker  was Katie.   But the boss he looked us  up and looked us down and asked his"  questions, and then says he,   'I'll give,  you a trial, my girl," says he to' me.  'But as for you,' he says to Katie, 'it's -  young, strong, lively women we want,'  says he, 'and I'm thinking you're after  mistaking  this  for    the    Old Ladles'  Home, which,' says he, 'is in the next'  block.' 1  .  " 'O-hol' says I to meself at that.  'Am I going out to hunt for wrinkles  and. rheumatism before me own mother  yets gray in her hair? No,' says I,  and 'twas then I begun to toss me  birthdays over me shoulder as fast as  they came. They're all behind me,  glory be! where I can't fall over thim.>  "Whisper, darling," Mrs. Mullaly  added. Impressively, "old age "Is" a bad-  habit, like drinking, and If ye give way  to it ye won't so easy break it oft. Sure,  there's a new year every twelve  months, but that can't make ye an old  woman���never, darling, until ye're will-  in' to be!"  Team-work Among Squirrels.  A party of young people who were  tenting In a grove near a glen at ' *  Northfleld Conference witnessed an Incident which seems to show a friendly  understanding among squirrels. Tho:  Deerfield Valley "Endeavorer" tells the  pleasing story.  An out-of-doors dinner had Just been  finished, and the party were still sitting at the table;.when a red squirrel,,  with glistening, eager eyes, came  creeping down.a tree which stood near  the table. He crept nearer and nearer,  and finally leaped upon the table.  The' lady who was presiding said,  "Yes, help yourself to anything you  want!"  Upon this Invitation the little fellow-  made bold to creep up to a loaf of  bread from which only <a slice or two  had been cut. He seized it and dragged  It to the side of the table, and somehow managed to scramble down the ���  side with It to the ground. He then  fixed his teeth In the crust, and  dragged It away and down the steep  sides ot the glen.  But when he reached the bottom and  confronted the steep rise on the other  side it was too much for him. Then  he gave a sort of call, which seemed  to be understood, for soon squirrels  were seen coming from several directions. They crowded round him, ancl  after a little conference, all took hold, "  and with tug and strain they managed to bring the loaf to the top of the  hill, and disappeared with It In th�� '  woods beyond.
