This special sitting of the full court  is not a very usual proceeding, and it  is believed that it will result in arranging for the tracklaying of the V., V. &  E. to go on.  'I here has been no love lost between the C. P. R. and. the Great  Northern for a number of years. The  former has persistently fought the  latter's attempts to trip the rich Boundary country, and thus far successfully.  .The theory now, however, is that the  C. P. R. is about to withdraw its'  objections to the Great Northern finishing its lines to Midway and Phoenix, providing the lines are built no  farther into the Similkameen���the  ultimate destination���this year. This  would give the C. P. R. one year's  start of the Great Northern if the C.  ��� P. R.-decides to Continue its own line  from Midway to the Similkameen this  year, forL which all surveys are now  complete. In many quarters' this is  thought to be the intention of the C.  p. r;  By this arrangement, Jim Hill will  get into the Boundary's chief camps,  but for a year at least will not build  any farther. At every turn his pro1  gress into the Boundary has been  blocked in the past and while the Hot  Air line is not given out as being own  ed by the C. P. R. as yet, it is thought  to be very close in ihe councils of the  great Canadian corporation.  ' Should these premises prove correct  it means another era of the most active  kind of railway building for this part  ofthe Boundary, and the addition of a  laige amount to the payroll distributed  hereabouts each month���and another  line of railway for Phoenix and other  Boundary points.  ACCIDENT QCCIUNEB^ON THUISDAY  Fergus McQoJrrie, a Nillm ���! Nova Scalte,  Wat tie Uatortaaatf Vtctlaa���Uraacr'f  latest Not NeedeaV   >  flood Luck lo Sunset.  The Laidlaw monument below town  is about to be transformed, says the  Boundary Creek Times. Mr. Goodell  has arrived from Colorado and is hard  at work and in place of a dead Pyritic  smelter we will soon have a live Sunset  one. With its purchase by the Sunset  people the old name will pass away,  and with it the old jokes on its name.  The "pirate" will cease to get in its  work and the "paralytic", will be' con-  ftitutionally renovated. Practical men,  with practical plans, are now in the.  saddle, and the pay-roll of the concern  will soon include other names than  merely those of the officials in charge.  Good luck to the Sunset,  Last Thursday afternoon a fatal accident happened.at the(Go!den Crown  nline; by which Fergus McQuarrie met  instant death while on the cage in the  shaft.: ..���������..."  McQuarrie was a single man, a member of the Phoenix Miners' Union,  and had been a resident of this camp  for the last two years and a half. His  brother, M. H. McQuarrie, is employed by the Granby Co. and has also  lived id Phoenix for a number of years,  being one of our respected citizens.  'The unfortunate . man was a native., of  Nova Scotia, was unmarried and about  27 years of age.  How Ike Accident Happeactf.  McQuarry was coming off shift  'Thursday afternoon at four o'clock,  and stepped on the cage at the 300-ft.  level, also placing on one of the heavy  machines to take to the surface. He  gave the signal to hoist, but when the  cage had risen perhaps 50 or 75 ftet  it stopped suddenly, and a man was  sent down to see what was the matter.  He found McQuarrie lying on the floor  of the cage dead or nearly so, with  the machine upon him. The guarding  rod on the cage, for keeping ore cars  from slipping off, instead of being in  place, had evidently not been fixed  in position when the cage started, but  was allowed to stick up. As the cage  ascended, this rod soon caught in the  timbering at the side and stopped the  cage,  Exactly how the death occurred is  not known, but evidently the machine  overbalanced when the cage stopj>ed  suddenly, and fell on McQuarrie, some  sharp part of the machine, or perhaps  his candlestick, penetrated his head  just* below the mouth, and causing  probably instant death.  'The mine's surgeon was at once  summoned by telephone and responded  post haste, but McQuarrie was beyond  human aid. Constable Darraugh was  sent for, as well as the dead man's  brother, but it was decided that an inquest was not needed. No blame is  attached to the management of the  mine for the unfortunate fatality.  - Mr. .McQuarrie has communicated  with his relatives in Nova Scotia, and  expects word to send his brother's remains east by today's train.  At Wednesday's meeting of ihe city  council the most impoitant business  done was the cutting of tlie salaries of  the city solicitor and city health  officer, the former from $40 to to $50  per month, and the latter from $?<j to  $70 per month, 'The city exchequer  is confronted with a paucity of cash at  present, and the members of the council  think lhat something should be.done  to tedure expenses, if possible. Ac-  coidjngjy the reductions above mentioned were decided ii|>on, and a resolution  ��as passed recommending the- letting  out of the chief of police, and-'having  the city clerk attend to the duties of  that officer, This latter matter, however, will probably not be acted upon  till the return of Mayor Rumberger���  about the last ol this month.  Dr. Fagan wrote a letter to the city  in regard t,q the prevention of the  spread of tubercolosis. A letter was  also read from Manager Hemenway,  of the Phoenix Water Supply Co., Ltd.,  saying that every effort was being.made  to improve the quality of the water  supply, and detailing what has been  done, stating that there is already some  improvement.  The city clerk was directed to write  to Smith Curtis, our member at Vic-  tdria, asking him to send the citycppjes  of any. bills introduced affecting the  water and light interests or any other  interest of the city.  On recommendation of the finance  committee, the following accounts were  paid: Vernon & Nelson Telephone  Co., $17.30; Phoenix Water Supply  Co., $45-  'The members present at the meeting weie Aldermen Rogers, Graham,  McRae, Munroe and Marshall, the  latter being in the chair.  MASQUERADE BALL A SUCCESS.  St.. Patrick'* bay Celebrates" at tfce>Uaert'��  Ual��a Hall.  Monday evening's masquerade ball,  jiiven by Phoenix Miners'Union No. 8,  at their hall, was a pronounced success in every way. Many unique and  elaborate costumes were worn by the  .merry maskers, who for the most pail  had taken great trouble to prepare for  the occasion. About ten couples came  up the hill from Greenwood to enjoy  the many, and there were also residents  of Grand Forks present.  The prize committee consisted of  H. Towns, J; McRae, T. Lyons and  J.

Some 700 mines of  copper, including all mines of importance in the world, are listed and de��  scribed, the lengths of the descriptions  varying from a few lines in the case of  properties of little importance to a  dozen pages in case of the largest  mines.  City Assessor McMillan has completed his labors lor'the year 1902, so far  as making tip -the ..asiesgrhent roll of  the city for this yeai isxoncerned,t the  result being that the total of. the rolL  amounts to $352,050. 'This is $86,-  025 more than the total of the roll for  1901, which amounted to $266,025.  'This year's roll is, of course; subject to  the final decision of the court of revision, in case any objections are made,  which court will hold its sitting on the  29th day of April, Thursday, at the  office of George W. Rumberger, in the  Baldwin Block, at 2 p. m.

The price is  understood tob.1 about $50,000 in all.  A large cash payment is said to have  been made. 'The purchasers are  Stephen H. Jones and Henry S. Ely  of Duluth, Minn., for themselves and  associates. The properties are the  Arlington-Burns group, in Deadwood  camp, about two miles from Greenwood, and the Riverside group, on the  Main Kettle river about four miles  above its confluence with Rock creek.  'The Arlington-Burns group consist  of two claims about half a mile south  of the"Mother Lode and the Sunset  mines. The late E. A. Bielenberg did  considerable tienching and other surface prospecting on the Arlington and  Burns, and exposed in some of the  open cuts much rock freely mineralized with iron and copper, but as the  deepest prospect hole is only 43 feet  down, no permanent ore body has  been proved.      Rlveriide Group.  The Riverside group comprises  the  Riverside (which  is crown  granted),  Emmeline and the Badger fractional  claims., cThe wagon road from  Rock  creektiip the main river and* the'1 West''*  ilfoifk passes close by, ��nd :the;linje"fun }. \  by the surveyors of the route of the  proposed Midway-Vernon railway also  touches.the group, so that the. claims   ,  are already accessible by wagon  road,  the grade of which, down to the Midway railway station, distant about   16  miles, is generally easy.  It is stated that about $5,000 has  been spent in developing the Riverside and the Badger, arid that this .���  work has proved along a distance of  500 feet the existence of a vein of high  grade silver-gold ore varying in width  from 1 foot to 5 feet. About 1500  tons of ore have been blocked out, and  assays have yielded returns from a few  dollars up to $155 per ton, with values  chiefly in silver. The sample assay of  a carload shipped to the Granby smelter is given as $31, while that of another car sent to the British Columbia  Copper company's smelter at Greenwood returned $41 per ton. J. P.  Flood'carried the deal through.  Agalost Premier Dunsmuir.  The following dispatch was sent  out from Victoria last 'Tuesday:  Hon. Smith Curtis today made definite charges against Premier Dunsmuir  and the rest of the ministers in connection with the railway deal, and will  tomorrow move for a committee of inquiry. The charges are that Mr.  Dunsmuir was enabled to sell the  E. & N. railway for a larger sum than  would otherwise have been obtained  through the subsidy to the Canada  Northern, thus reaping a large advantage. He also charges all the members of the executive with grave misconduct and gross wilful neglect of  duty in employing Mr. Greenshieldsas  agent for the government while he was  acting as the representative for Mackenzie and Mann.  Total $ 81,150 $184,875 $266,015  Last year's being the fust official assessment, the rate of taxation was low,  being only 12 mills on the dollar.  'This year, in order to provide for the  interest on the $10,000 loan from the  Bank oi Montreal, used last year in  street improvements, and other expenses of conducting the city government, the rate will necessarily be  higher, and will when struck probably  be 20 mills or perhaps a little more  Crows' Nest Profits.  The net profits of the Crow's Nest  Coal Company last year, after paying  all operating expenses, and other  charges amounted to $270,848., paying dividends at the rate of ten per  cent per annum, and leaving a balance  of $28,142 to carry forward.

This gieat advantage which  ought to How from the development of  the countri'.s natural resources is thus  argely curtailed by the employment of  this <'lass of labor.  Unhlr Competition,  The working man is further embittered by the fact that not only is he  compelled to compete, tinder these un  fair conditions, but he also finds the  places which he has a right to ex|>ect  lis sons apd daughters to fill occupied  by Chinese, and his children' growing  tip in idleness pud despising honest  labor.

The above  applies with greater or less-force in the  case of women and girls who have to  seek a liyeljhpp(i by' [heir CW work,  No Adv4aU|�� tu Skilled Ukor.  It was urged upon us by some that  the effect of this cheap class of .labor  is to increase the number of skilled  laborers employed and to increase  their wages. The skilled mechanic  did not admit this contention to be  true, and declared if it were true he  did not want the advantage There  ought to be no distinction in oppoftun  ity between different classes of labor,  and besides, the fate of the; unskilled  laborer today may in time hie the fate  of those engaged in the-more skilled  employments.  In many lines tbe encroachment  has commenced. From the position  of the laboring man the admission of  thii class of labor is unlair, unjust and  deadly in its effect; unfair because it  does not affect all alike, unjust because  it:robs the poorest of hplf his income  from his only capital, and deadly because it strikes at home life and the  wage earning   class.  What tbe Province Should PostsM.  Situated as this pi ovirice is, upon  the seaboard, it should possess a stalwart, homogeneous and united population, capable and willing to defend the  country in case of attack. In this regard the Chinese are a real source of  weakness.  It is incredible that British Columbia, admittedly one of the richest  countries in the world in natural resources,���with its vast forests, unsurpassed fisheries, minerals of all kinds,  and large tracts of delta and other  lands suitable for agriculture,���cannot  be developed without the assistance of  Chinese labor.  Your commissioneis believe that it  |s impossible for the province of  British Colunrbia, to take its place and  part in the pominipn trs it ought to do,-  unless jts pppuhuicm is free fiom  any tajnt of servile labor and is imbued with a'sense of the duties and  responsibilities appertaining to citizenship. ;'*������'-.'  Prohibition Insisted Upon.  This class of immigration falls far  short of that standard so essential to  the well-being of the country. From  a Canadian standpoint it is injurious,  and in the interest of the nation any  further immigration ought to be prohibited. The great indu.s.t.ries wjll npt  suffer. There is, a su,i p!u,s of thjs class  of labor at th,e present tjm,e r��trJy to  enter a^y avgnug of unskilled lahor  that maj open.  If no more were admitted the supply  is equal to the demand for years to  come, and the change will be so gradual as to be almost imperceptible. There  are more Chinese today in Victoria  and adjacent thereto than in the whole  state of Washington. The Chinese  laborers who are already in the country  will be benefited by the change.  Trade with China will talher be promoted than otherwise, by removing a  cause of friction, as has beeri tound to  be the case in the yn^ted Sjajes in their  trade with Chi^a, sjnee the Exclnsion  Act.  Outside of the profession there has  prevailed an' opinion quite generally  that there is all kinds of money inthe  newspaper business. The average man  seemed to think that publishers as a  iu!e were simply rolling in wealth,  which apparently csmie to them easily.

The chances are ten to one that  he needs it and needs jt badly in his  business. Remember that the local  paper can and does do more for your  town than any other agency, or all  other agencies.  MS  The following from ihe financier of  the New Denver Ledge, fits the case  to a nicety:  " "When the columns of a newspaper  are'packed {p the last quad with advertisements of business men it does  more to attract attention to a town and  district than anything else. It is a  sign that there is business going on, or  at least that the people are capable' of  doing business when they get an  opportunity. The man who does not  support his local paper cuts a gash into  his financial back without knowing it."  H. S. Turner, the genial editor of  Evening Sun, published at Columbia,  has been in the newspaper business  for many years. When he discontinued  the publication ofthe Cascade Record,  last year, he said that he was done  with the newspaper business for good;  but it appears that the attractions of  the vocation are irrisistable. When  asked recently why he got into it again,  he is reported to have said : "Well, I  guess I've got the disease, and can't  get rid of it."  ..    KISTIfRMAN,  solicitors for Applicants.
