THB RECORDS.
Owinpf to the insufficient stuff in the
Mining Ricorder's office here, the work
of the office has heen recently piling
up, and as a result we are unable to
offer to our readers a full report of the
records for the week. Now that another constable is appointed who will
render some assistance in the office, no
doubt matters will straighten themselves out somewhat, therefore, for the
future it may he possible to give thc
records in full.
wnoui uie most pleasing features of
the game was the kindly spirit in which
the Greenwood boys accepted defeat al
the bands of the mixed team: representing Midway, thereby demonstriting that thoy are true sportsmen, and
that it was a [(leisure to them to assist
at a celebration at a «isler town.
The thanks of the committee of man
agement. is also due to IhejNelson boys,
fm- the prompt iiiniiiiei- in which tbey
responded lo die Midway invitation.

15 tne only Consideration
NOT CORRECT.
The Greenwood)Miner,in its reference
to the Midway Queen's celebration, in
its opening remarks, makes the statement that Midway oh the 24th of May
was -'wild and woolly."
The Miner is evidently mistaken in
this if the usual interpretation placed
upon the words "wild and woolly," be
taken, for although the participants
and witnesses iu and of the celebration
are estimated to have numbered 1000
people, yet was not a single arrest
made, and not a case of drunkenness
observed among any of the many
assembled. In fact a better behaved
crowd of people never congregated at
any point either in or out of the province.
APPOINTMENTS.
A recent number of the British Coliiniliia Gazette contains a notice to
the effect tbat on the 30th day of June
next, all appointments of Justices of
the Peace heretofore made will be re-
cinded. The same number contains a
schedule of the new appointments
the same to lake effect on the 23rd
inst.
Upon looking over the list it is
noticed that not a single appointment
has been made, for the Boundary Creek
district, thereby leaving the territory
between Camp McKinney and Grand
Forks without a magistrate. Just why
this should be we certainly fail to see,
for did tbe government not wish to reappoint the magistrates formerly holding commissions, they could at least
have found plenty of good material
among such an intelligent community
as that of Boundary Creek, and so
made other appointments, Just at
present it would seem that the Boundary Creek district is one the government is strenerously endeavoring to
forget.
Base Bail.
As noted in another column, the
game of base ball between Midway"and
Greenwood, whieh was billed to take
place on the morning of the 21th and
was one of the leading feat:-, »s in the
Queen's birthday celebration, was not
played until the afternoon, on account
of the non arrival of a few outside
players which the Midway team found
it necessary to procure so that the
visiting team would be put upon their
metal and given a good game.
These having arrived from Nelson,
Wash., about half past two o'clock saw
tie respective teams lined up on the
Held and the game begun.
At first the advantage of the game
was distinctly on the side of the Greenwood team, which it must be said pub
up a splendid game, but as play continued the Midway aggregation showed
tetter form, owing to the veteran work
o* their helpers the Nelson boys, and
soon the score was brought even and
then commenced to turn in favor of
Midway, and so it continued lo the end
of the game as at this .juncture it stood
for Greenwood 18 and for Midway 21.
Some brilliant individual plays were
noticed, but where all did so well it
would be invidious to particularize
The different teams were composed
of the following:
Gbebnwood. Midway.
Edwards catcher Smith
Sundry pitcher Petty
Medill 1st base Laplant
Keith 2nd base      Campbell
Steiritt 3rd base Hoppin
AlcKiiiiion      short slip        Coryell
Witrtman       left field Clyde
Miller center field      Newton
O'Leary        right field        Bush
The umpire for Greenwood was Mr,
H. Ifowden and foi Midway Mr. H,
Donougli,
That much interest was taken in
the game, will readily be understood
when it i.s staled that a very large proportion of the gathering present to
Cricket Match.
As part of the programme of sports
for the 24th of May, a cricket match
was played between teams representing Midway and Greenwood, the challenge having been extended hy the
flrst named team.
Punctually at 10 a. m. the teams were
on tbe ground, and  Midway having
won the loss elected their opponents
to bat.   Neither team had had much
practice therefore it was not expected
that high scores would  In- made, but
when the effective bowling of McLaine
and Gardom bad disposed of several of
Greenwood's best men foi a total of
12 runs with seven wickets down and
the remainder was disposed of for a
total of 44 runs, the Midway boys felt
that they had the game well in hand,
In this however they were hadly mis
taken^for going to brt their opponents |
were even more successful in preventing a big score,   as  although   the
bowlers were less effective, the fielding
of the Greenwood team was admirable,
and so the first innings for Midway
ended with only 30 runs to their team's
credit.   At this juncture lunch was
served and thoroughly enjoyed by all,
after which   Greenwood took their
second innings, and this time although
Simpson a new bowler of the Midway
team did great execution, taking seven
wickets in eleven overs and for IS runs,
yet the team managed to compile a
total for the innings of 66 runs therefore leaving Midway with 71 runs to
make to win.    This the home team
felt confident they could do.  Thoy
reckoned not wisely however  and not
well, for with eveif a less score than
thut made in the first innings they
were retired, suffering defeat at the
hands of the visitors by no Jess than
44 runs.
Not the slightest incident marred the
game which all seemed thoroughly to
enjoy, therefore, when in tlie evening
unassembled at the Lancashire House,
where the visitors accepted the proffered hospitality of the home team to
a splendid repast, it is not to be wondered at that all was cordiality and
good wil), as testified hy the happy
speeches made and the toasts responded
to, among which none wae observed
witli more fervour and sincerity than
the one which ever comes flrst on such
occasions, namely, to Our Sovereign
Lady Queen.

A three legged race, It*) feet, in which
two cousins Messrs. Ingrim and Ingram

completed the programme, and so
closed a day of sports the equal of
which for fun mid amusement and
true entertainment had not been
equalled tor many a day in any portion
of British Coliiniliia, and certainly
never was surpassed.
As judges of horse races, Messrs. A.
Ferguson, J. Sutherland, and W. Nelson, all of Oreenwood, kindly lent
their assistance, and as starter,
the coiiniiitt'-e of management were
fortunate in securing the aid ofMr.A.
D. Cameron of tlie Bank of Commerce,
Greenwood, who won the praise of all
contestants for the fair and painstaking manner in which he performed his
duties.
The atheletic events were in the
hands of the general committee of
which Mr. J. Withell, of Moutreal,
nne of the directors of the Midway
company, was chairman, and to whom
the thanks of thi. community is due
for the untiring manner in which he
lalmrcd to make the celebration a
success. This may also be said of Mr
W. B. Rickards who acted as secretary
treasurer for the occasion and upon
fell the bulk of the heavy work in connection with the general arrangements,
which however were so ably executed
that not a hitch occurred throughout
the whole proceedings.

The Oro Kino Mill.
The 5-stamp mill which the Oro Fino
Gold Mining and Milling Company is
installing ou their claims at Fairview.
is expected to be started up in about
10 days, as preparations are now lieing made feu* the trial run. Heavy
teams and wagons haw 1h*ci) purchased
for the hauling of the ore to the mill,
and when the stamps start dropping
everything will Ik- in apple pie order.
The Oro Finn ore Ls credited with
carrying values above the average of
free milling gold ores, therefore the
venture should be a profitable one in
every way.

Sunset.
Turn not to the east when the day is
declining
And the glory of sunset is here,
Too sad is the light the  far hilltops
defining
In outlines too pensively clear
Though fair was the morning, its gladness is past.
And the day's brightest beams are reserved for the last.
The morn is for growth, and the noontide is stronger
In all that is bravest and best;
But the hands become weary as shadows grim- longer,
And we look to the evening for rest.
And why should we sigh for the morning's delight.
When ripe for the quiet and lieace of
the night?
Turn not to tlie east when the day is
declining,
Nor muse em the past with a tear,
When bright o'er the hilltops the red
light is shining
And the glory of sunset is here.
Enjoy then the moment, the brightest
and liest,  ,
When morning is dawning away in
Ihe west.
