This week a case of considerable  local interest came up  in  the assizes  which were held at (Jieenwood by Judge  Walkem, il beinj; that of McKenzie.vs.  Granby   Con.   Mining,   Smelting &  Power Co., Ltd., for $5,000 damages  foi the loss of an eye in an explosion.  The accident happened on the 1 ah  of February, 1901, in ihe No. 1   stops-  of the Knob Hill mine.    The plaintiff,  Dan McKenzie, was tunning a machine  at the point mentioned, when the diil'  struck a. missed < lioW'tHe* exptosibn  destroying the siyhrof one eye.* > Mc-  Kenzie's partner, Tom Keins, happened to be away from the machine at tht  time, and so escaped.   J. K,  Biown  appeared for the the plaintiff and McDonald & Heisterman for-the'- defendant.   After the evidence  was all  in,  and the learned judge had  made  tlie  charge, thejury retired, and after being  out three hours and a half,, brought in  a verdict of $2,500 foi the plaintiff.  The case ocpupied the time of the  court for two days, and was concluded  Thursday nighf.   The plaintiff had the  following  witnesses :     Tom    Kerris;  Wm. Nelson,  the company's blaster,  Sandy   McDonald, and   IV.   Martin,  who had worked one shift at the mine.  For tjiejlefendent, the following, went . -  down to court;   Wm. Voleh WilHarns, '  the superintendent, J.~F.   Hemenway,  o.' the office force, P. J. Dermody the  foreman, Jno.  Pierce and. Qeo. Cat-  tenach, shift bosses, and J. Landsberg.  C. N. Collins was foreman of the jui)  ol eight, the verdict being brought in  by six.  Charge ���! the Jus_e.  In his charge to the jury, Judge  Walkem called particular attention to  the signs which the company has posted around the mines in conspicuous  places, warning workmen to use care,  and one of which was produced in  evidence. It reads as follows:  "All miners are requested to thoroughly examine'grou.nd' in the stopes  when going on sjuft, and to bar down  all loose rock, and be-;especially careful to look out for missed holes, and il  any are found to,report same to shift  boss, thereby protecting themselves  and others from accidents.

The' news spread  fajt( b|jt nothing definite., was obtainable iilf Saturday, "pthen it was learned  that.the first.re|)orts had not been ia  the least exaggerated. ���  ,,  In' the neighborhood of- 150 men  were it' work in the mine when ,tbe<  fatal explosion happened Thursday  evening, and scarcely one escaped to  tell how it happened. But it did hap_-  pen, and left hundreds of widows, and  orphans in its dreadful wake. The  first intimation to those outside that a  disaster, had occurred, was a rush ot  coal.dust and.a column.of Are which  (bse i.opo. feet  fan, ��� -  > Relief parties weie at work to attempt to rescue the entombed miners  in 12 minutes after the accident took  place, and have been at work steadily-.,  ever .since, bringing out the blackened  everywhere, and it is said that a serious atcident had been feared by the  coal'rnlners at Fernie for some time,  and that some had refused to work in  the mines there on that account.  In-' the face of this, however, the coal  1>eople say that the mine had been inspected by Archibald Dick, the govern*  ,ment njifncial for this purpose, only the  day before, and.that he had given a  written certificate of the safety of the  properly. The company's rules are  strict about smoking in the mines, and  but �� few days before the disaster several convictions were had before a  local justice for infringement of the  rules.  James McGregor, mining inspector  for this district, was formerly in the  East Kootenay district, but was transferred. On his trips to Phoenix, he  has talked with people here, saying  that he "fully exacted that a serious  accident would hapj>en at the Fernie  coal mines some day, and that it would  be .attended with large loss of Hie in all  probability. It would thus appear  that tbe mining inspectors do not agree  in the. matter, aud the prediction of  the one who was tranferred was fulfilled.  Secretary RJordan, of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, circulated a subscription list and scon obtained over  $ioo,- which was sent on to Fernie. In  addion to this $25 was handed in to  the Eastern Townships Bank for the  same object.  SHAFT HOUSE  WAS BURNED  About $6,000 Loss at the Winnipeg;.  FIIE 0CCUBRED 4 A. M.

Last Saturday's Victoria Day celebration at Greenwood drew a large  the air above the f nurnber of visitors from all over the  Boundary, and from Nelson and Rossland. The s;>ecial train brought about  250 from Grand Forks, as well as  others from Cascade, Eholt and Phoenix.

No  such disaster has yet taken place in  the history of coaj oj other mining- in  this province.  Where It Kaapcaed. ���  . The Fernie mines are worked almost  entirely by tunnels, and the explosion  is said to have occurred in the No. 2  tunnel, where over 100 men were at'  work a,t the time.

The  new location selected is the large store  room on First street, in the rear of the  Hank block".   Contractor Scott is how  making the necessary alterations in the  room to'accommodate the firm, which  is expected to be occupied early next  week.     ,  Jusiah Sjtirre.Nj-who has been manager of the local branch of P. Burns &  Co. for the. last two years or more, has  been tranferred to the Cranbrook shop,  and left early in the week for the scene  of his new labors.

"."..���' '  .   Volunteers were^ called for, and dozens of willing men at once began the  work lof rescue, dangerous, as it was.  This was sorn,ewr��at  delayed  by   the  necessity ;.p|  rpuairing  the air pipes  ��fhich had b en ivactically destroyed  by the explosion.    No fire was found  in the mine, showing that the death' of  the victims had probably been instantaneous.    In all about 210 miners had  gone in to work on their shift at the  fatal time, and fully  three quarters of  those never came out alive.  Pellel Faod at Once Started.  The Fernie Board of Trade, realizing the-necessity of prompt action-foi  the deetitute families of the victims, at  once sent out telegrams like the following which was received by the Pioneer last Saturday:  Fernie, li C, May .24, 1902.  Bioneer Pub. Co.,  Phoenix, B. C.  We would urgently call attention of  all jieople that a great  calamity  has  overtaken the town by a niine explosion;   1 ��p.men have heen killed^ 'an*  1 Two brass band;;���one from Greenwood and the other from Grand Forks  ���discoursed sweet (?) music during  the day, and assisted in making things  lively for the visitors. The was a full-  list of sports, which had many onlookers.  In the horse races, Charles Emmen's  Northern Eclipse won the half mile  freed for all. Lee's Easter Lily won  the 600 yard dash, and F. W. Mc-  Laine's mare won the saddle horse  race. Joe Gillis' Brownie won the  pony race. ..  In the foot races Fred  Mitchell, of  Yesterday 'morning the Winnipeg  mine shafthouse burned down, entailing a loss of about $6,000.  The fire started about six o'clock in  the dry room, and as a high wind was  biowing it could not be checked. By  the hardest kind of work on the Dart  of the mine force, the rest of the mine  buildings were saved. It is not known  yet how the fire originated.  In the shafthouse was located the  '7-drill straight line Rand air compressor and boilcis which had been used .  for several years, as well as the pumps.  Yesterday Edgar^-Plewman, in charge  at the mine, had his hands full in get;  ting the two pumps out of the lower  levels before the mine filled with water.  Richard Plewman, managing director of the Winnipeg, will -arrive from  Rossland on this afternoon's train,  to look aftei matters. There was some  insurance, it is thought about $1,800,  in the London and Lancashire.  -���the 100 yard race in 10 4-5  seconds,  ���and the 220yard in 23 seconds flat.  Grand Forks did not do a thing to  the Greenwood nine at base ball, beating them by a score of 8 to 2, in a  .game watched by an immense concourse of people.  Much interest was evidenced in the  hose'reel races, there being three teams  to enter, the Rossland, Grand Forks  and Greenwood teams. In the hub  and hub race, Greenwood got first  money in a close race. In the wettest, Rossland ran first making the  time of 27 j�� seconds. The Gn e nvood  and Grand Forks teams both made  flukes, and consequently there was no  second money awarded.  The hill climbing contest was watched with a good deal of interest, there  being two entries. James Morgan, ol  the Mother Lode mine, went 10'ihe  top of Jubilee mountain and brought  back the flag in 13 minutes.  USIN0 A SECOND SHAY ENGINE.  Pboealx Ore Traffic Necessitate More Loco*  motive Power.  This week a new Shay locomotive  was placed in commission on the Phoenix hill, for the purpose of handling  the ore traffic between the Granby  niines-ani- the smelter at Grand Forks.  One of these powerful locomotives  has been in use here for some months,  and is known as No. in. The new  machine is numbered 1902, and began  work here last Monday. These engines  can easily haul twenty empties up the  Phoenix hill, where one*of the old  kind can handle but ten or fifteen.  It is the plan now to have the trains  of ore made up with 25 cars each, and  to run two of these eveiy day through  to the smelter, the passenger engine  hauling some of the empties up the .  hill when not otherwise busy. This  will give the hauling of the entire,1,500  tons of ore daily over to two train  crews and two engines. The new Shay-  is precisely like the old one, except  that it has some improvements, such  as doing the oiling entirely from the  cab, etc.   '.'  Boundary Mining Notes.  I jam  J. Murphy was   killed   in a loj  near Midway last week Friday,  Midway had  a  successful   Victoria  day celebration last Saturday.  A,rich find of free gold ore is reported from the Waterloo, Camp McrCin-  ney.  The two 80 h. p. boilers for the  new Snowshoe compressor have arrived  at the mine, and are being set up.  June 30th is now said to be the approximate date for the blowing in of  the Sunset smelter, ihe delay being  caused by the nou-anival ol the new  ore crusher.  While nothing definite has bei-n  given o-.:t, ii is known ihat ihe War  Eagle people, in iliis camp, are planning to resume operations on that mine  at no very distant date.  ���It is expected that ihe H.

Phoenix was  not behind in .this matter, and a substantial s|um will be sent to the bank  at Fernie for the widows and orphans.  The C. P.

In all towns where a newspaper is  published every man should advertise  in it, if nothing more than a card stating his name and the business he is in.  It does not only pay to advertise, but  it lets people at a distance know that  the town in which you reside is a pros-  peious community of.business men.  As the seeds are sown so the seed  recompenses. Never pull down your  sign while you expect to do business.  ���Peter Cooper.
