Loundagan, Chesaw Merchant Killed���Others Seriously Injured.  moved to Chesaw, but thecondition  of Mr. Mclntyre was so serious as  to necessitate his immediate removal to the hospital in Spokane.  One of the worst accidents in the  history of British Columbia automobile t'ravel occurred oil Sunday  evening-, about seven o'clock, near  Mynoaster, when a car owned by  Jas. Loundagan, a general merchant  of Chesaw, Wash., toppled over a  steep bank, about 500 yards from  .the custom house.  Riding- in the car with Mr. Loundagan, were  his wife and  five-year  old child  and Jas. Mclntyre, also of  Chesaw.      The party were enjoying |  an outing and were  returning from  Rock creek, when after ascending a  rather steep part of the road a sharp  turn    presented    itself,   and   while  negotiating    the    curve,   the   car,  which was travelling at high speed,  left the   road   and was precipitated  about  thirty  feet down  the. bank.  Mrs.    Loundagan,   who. Had   sustained a  broken arm and dislocated  shoulder, hurried  as  best she could  to Myncaster and  secured the help  of several    persons   who  conveyed  the  injured   to   the  custom  house.  The injuries, however, of Mr. Loundagan  proved  fatal, his death taking place on Monday evening.. "Mr.  Mclntyre   was  also seriously hurt,  his injuries consisting of a . broken  hip and internal injuries.    The baby-  escaped with a severe shaking.  The  body   of   Mr.   Loundagan   was  re-  Rutledge-Nixon  A wedding of special  interest to  the people  of  Phoenix was sole/n-  nized   in  Vancouver,  on  Saturday,  April 27, at the residence of T. W.  Nixon,    2257,   Parker-street,   when  Miss  C. Rutledge,  of Belfast,   Ireland, was united in  marriage to the  Rev.   J. J. Nixon,   pastor of. Phoenix   Methodist Church.    The  bride  is a recent arrival'in Canada, coming here from  Philadelphia,   where  she has resided  for some months.  Rev. R.   F.  Stillman, pastor of the  Grand View Methodist  church, tied  the nuptial knot.-in  the presence of  the relatives and intimate friends of  the bridegroom,  and  the same day  the happy couple  boarded the train  for  Phoenix,   arriving here late on  Monday; evening. , ���;;'- ;  On Wednesday evening, May 8,  Mr. and Mrs. j'. J. Nixon will hold  a reception in the Methodist church.  An entertaining program of vocal  and instrumental music has been  prepared, and the Ladies' Aid ofthe  church   will    dispense  refreshments  Automobile for Phoenix  We  have    been   accustomed for  some years past to seeing the auto  cars from surrounding towns passing through' the city, and  with the  exception    of quite   a  number  of  locally-owned   and  powerful   motor  bikes,   we  have  not been .able  to  number  among  our  residents   any  owners   of automobiles.     All  this,  however,  is shortly to be changed,  and to J. E. Thompson, of the firm  of Morrin, Thompson &   Co.,   belongs ,the honor of being the first in  Phoenix to own  a motorcar.    The  order  for   the vehicle,   which   is  of  thirty horse-powerj has  been placed  with   the   Overland    company,    of  Toledo,   Ohio,. and  delivery  is expected in Phoenix about the 20th of  this month.   ���  ELECTRIC HAULAGE  FOR RAWHIDE MINE  Motor to be Installed-Extensive  Diamond Drilling on Promising Voight Group.  According to a statement recently  made to the Pioneer, by E. E. Warren, general manager of the British  Columbia   Copper   Co.,    the   company's    prospective     holdings     in  Voight camp,  Similkameen,  are all  {showing up most .favorably;,the recent  development work   conducted  there having been  of such  sing nature   that   the  Boundary Ore Toftinages  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters of  ttie Boundary district for the week  ending May 3, and year to date:  a promi-  management  have definitely decided to' install a  compressor and test the ground  with a diamond drill.

Following are  some extracts from the current issue  of the foregoing paper: ���  "Altogether the Dominion Stock  and Bond Corporation's "Alberni"  proposition is   as rank  a swindle as  was ever perpetrated in this district.  "The corporation's folder says it  is "an investment that will have no  repetition.'    It'is to  be hoped that  it will not, but  it would  seem that  the best way  to stop  repetitions  of  such  opportunities would be to put  some of the people who offer them  where they ought to be���in jail."

You are cordially invited to come  and see our Complete Range of  Cuptains h_ Draperies  Warden, who has just returnedfrom  a visit  to the Similkameen  properties,   expressed   himself   as   being  highly pleased with the general progress of the company's operations,  both at Greenwood  and elsewhere.  He emphatically denied  the  recent  newspaper stories that the. company  had   enlarged ..its   Greenwood   furnaces.    They had,  however, rebuilt  a couple of them, but their capacity  had not been altered.      Questioned  as to whether his company intended  to   commence   operations,   such    as  diamond   drilling, on .*he   Brooklyn  mine    property,   Mr. -Warren   said  that   ;'���they  had not  thought'of it.",.  :��The ..smelter ,ret_irns- for C.the.,,, past,  week were it',242 tons,   a reduction  of  about   1996   from   the   previous  week's treatment,  when operations  were impeded by the reconstruction  work at the furnaces.  in that city,- arrived in Alberni on  Friday last, and spent a few days  looking over the property he had  been selling.  " I had my doubts about it and  came to see," said Mr. Matthews to  the Port Alberni News. "I now  mean to take action to compel the  Dominion Stock and Bond corporation to refund all money they have  obtained through my agency. The  sale is a swindle and has��been conducted on outrageous misrepresentations. I have nothing more to  do with it, and emphatically denounce it."

Docksteader held a  fraternal conversation over the wire  with his brother at Midway, and  Mr. Y'ankovitch, who was pursuing  his weary pilgrimage to the United  States via Midway, was requested  by the courteous William to accompany him back to Phoenix to explain  how the "lost" ticker came into  his possesesion. However, his explanation was not accepted by the  court, and Police Magistrate A. S.  Hood, ordered him to be the guest  ofthe province for a period of two  months.

Roy, formerly proprietor of  the Roy cafe, has yielded to the importunities of his many friends and  patrons, and has now severed his  connection with the cafe, which  under his supervision had become  so popular with the dining public of  Phoenix, in order to devote the  whole of his time to the management of the King's hotel dining  room. Mr. Roy, who is numbered among the most successful  cuisine artists in B.

Up   to the present, however, nothing of a definite  nature  has   been   decided   upon   bythe local leather kickers, but in the  event.of a decision being reached to  visit Spokane  on the 24th   of May,  the  local boys  may be   counted on  to   render  an   excellent   account of  themselves.    Altogether up  to  the  present   about   seventy   have signified their intention of accompanying  the Phoenix   eleven, and   no doubt  this number will  be greatly increased when  a  definite  program   is advanced.     It   has further been   suggested by   the leading spirits in the  movement  that  a   special   train  be  chartered  to convey the challenging  invaders to the scene of action.

Simply and directly she told her story,  omitting as niuoli as possible any conflicting details, stating that her  brother hod been wounded while trying to reach home for a few hours'  stay and that his two companions -had  returned   that  night.  Oentily the general questioned her  and, satisfied that his attempt to gain  Information was fruitless .ordered two  of his men to return with her to her  home, himself promising to go over  in the afternoon.  It was nearly tho cl.se of day that  a little group of uuion men went up  the broad steps of the Bickerton  home.

'S6me are 'like tents,  others like cliffs,, ^castles'and cathe-  drals, .ships,-or Anijiia'ls,-'in:,fa'cb>all  shapes. Sometimes tlie' pinnacles  rise to a height of 'a thousand feet,  while the ,base" or water-Jine area  covers a space of. sometimes twelve  acres. ' ,   , '  The colors are beyond description; at tim.es pure white ; .at times  of a greenish tint caused by the reflection of light upon the mass "ot  ice under the water being thrown  back upon the exposed surface. The  side in shallow is TS. beautiful blue,  the - reflected color pf- the sky.  Others are of a darker blue because  built up of ice formed from fresh  water that has melted on the surface of the glaciers, or rain or  melted snow. 'r- - ��  It is generally believed that for  every cubic foot of ice above water  there are seven below, and a berg  therefore.that towers 100 feet above  the ocean level, has a total o�� 800  feet.  It is known of course that icebergs are mere chips from the  great northern glaciers. It was  thought at one time that as the  glaciers pushed themselves into the  sea it was pressure from behind  that caused the masses to become  detached from the main body. It  is now known that the birth of icebergs is produced  by the action of  such supine ignorance in the matter  is shown   it is  difficult to imagine,  particularly when there already exists   a most  stringent set  of laws  governing such cases; it also goes  without saying that when a law is  once entered in the  British statute  books, that law has not been made  to gratify one half the people, and  then wilfully ignored to afford pleasure and relief W the other half.  The  Act iit question  specifically   applies  to  all   ships   ofthe  British  marine  (the Titanic was one of them)-; it is  not even   necessary for the  ship to  be lost', but that if such a misadventure,  as for  instance, stranding or  colliding   with   another,   or  in   the  event _6J/ fire,   then   such incidents  are considered sufficient grounds to  warrant the "assembly of a Board of  IVa'.lii inquiry.     Not only is this the  .Bfitisti    law5; "but  there   is   also   a  judge and   court tpr  deciding questions   pertaining   to   the mercantile  marine.    The judge, isr assisted   in  his dutres by two nautical-assessors,  generally two  captains of the merchant marine, who- are-appointed in  much the Same  manner as that em-  ployed in the empannelting of a jury,  i.e., by supoepa. Among the powers  vested in  a British ' Board of Trade  inquiry  is -the ^authority to cancel  a ship's, officers' ^'navigation  certifi-  cates,;and whert culpable negligence  is'shown, - its finding in some cases-  is followed by action it. the criminal  courts:*. '      ,   "   "  Unless otherwise requested,  and  unlike the United States, tbe British  government  never  interferes in the  case of disaster to  foreign  vessels  unless requested to do so; but otherwise no  inquiry  as to the why and  wherefore- of, the  loss of a  foreign  ship.is  even dreamed   of.    Even if  we ignore  the senseless-catechism  of Senator Smith,  the right of the  United States Senate in appointing  a  committee   of   inquiry  into   the  circumstances attending the loss of  the Titanic,  a  British   ship, flying  the British flag and lost a thousand  miles from the  United States,  has  already  been challenged by   international  jurists   of   repiite,   but   it  might not   be   oat of place  if they,  continue sitting  and find out   why  the captain of the General Slocum',  the  direct   cause   of   the   death   of  hundreds    of New;  York  children,  The imdexwear  without a fault  Stationery ��* Confectionery  Fancy Goods.

McKay St Bone  Proprietors  by ships passing . to and from  Europe represent the wastage from  the glaciers of Greenland. In that  country is found one of the very  largest glaciers in the world, the  Humboldt Glacier, discovered by  Dr. E. K. Kane, only as late as  1853. It is sixty miles in length,  and has a perpendicular face of 300  feet. How many icebergs are sent  on their career through the ocean  by this glacier it is impossible to  say, though several arctic explorers  declare that the Humboldt is respon  sible every year for at least half a  million icebergs.  The bergs from Greenland are  carried down toward the middle of  the Atlantic by the Labrador current. They travel rig"ht down the  coast of Labrador, passing New  Foundland, until they reach the  warm-waters of the Gulf stream,  when they disappear. They have  however, been sighted below the  fortieth parallel, or nearly on a line  with Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.  Thousands do not get any further  than the coast of Labrador, where  they become stranded. Steamers-  travelling northward from St. John's  are often in view of iceberg s all day,  passing in endlesss procejsssion, as  many as fifty being in sig ht at one  time.  equally as great a country  ran-  The Central Hotel  NEAREST HOTEL TQTAMOUS GRANBY MIMES  FIRST-CLASS ACCOMMODATION FOR  MINERS  Bar Stocked with the Finest Line of Wines, Liquors, Cigars  The Titanic Inqu iry  The surprise manifested in certain circles that the Britisih government is about to hold an .investigation into the causes connected with  the .sinking of the British steamer  Titanic, have created no end of  astonishment in the minds of all  people giftedl with any claitns .to  an  average   intelligence.
