BeHiitiful weather,*good programme
mid it large crowd all combined to
make the celebration here on May 24
the greatest in the history of Ihe town.
The crowd began to arrive the previous
day, when innumerable rig*, crowded
with pleasure seekers, caroe in from
the different pnints weet of here, ali
enthusiastic over the expectancy of s
successful day's sport* on the morrow
The appearance of the town upon theii
arrival hut increased their enthusiasm,
and their anxiety to witness the following day's sports grew greater as
their eyes caught sight of the numerous nimble legged rare horses brought
here to compete for. the lilieral purees
offered by the celebration committee.
The day opened fine. The threatening clouds lhat hovered round for several days before th* 24th had cleared
away, and as the sun rose in ita magni-
flrent splendor all nature seemed to
rejoice and otter tributes of respect to
the memory of her whom it was that
flrst caused the Briiish people to hold
May 24 as a public holiday, and hy
whose long and most noble reign the
day, for all time to come, will remain
as one fur recreation throughout the
entire British nation'.
Before nine o'clock nearly all tM
residents of the various towns west of
here, and the people ff»ni the extai
•ive ■ auching country tributary to this
plare, were in Midway, but it waa
found lhat the special trains from
Phoenix and Cascade, which were to
arrive at 9.45, were over an hour late,
so the lime for starling the sports was
postponed until their arrival.
At eleven o'clock the shrill whistling
of the incoming trains could be heard
around the bend, and immediately the
Midway hand, materially strengthened
by a number of musicians froni Phoenix, began to play and as Uw trains,
groaning beneath their heavy burdens
of human freight, rolled into the *>ta<
tion a hearty welcome waa extended to
the large crowd of visitors from Cascade, Grand Forks, Phoenix, Oreenwood and other points eut.
After sufficient time bad heen allowed to admit of Ihe visitors reaching
tbe grounds, ihe procession heing
headed by the Midway hand, and marshalled hy the world renowned drum
major, Major Morton Hill, the snort*
were called.
The flrst event waa the boys' pony
race. As usual much time was (oat In
ili'termiiiing the nunilier that were
eligible to run in this race. Horses of
nil sixes were on the grounds, their
owneis claiming they were under
fourteen hands and entitled to ran,
while the shrinking process would
have to have lieen vigorously applied
to many of them tn have In ought
lliem down anywhere near the mark.
At last the nunilier wasdwindled down
to two, owned by Walter Murray and
J, ,1. Flood respectively. These obtained an even start, and il was one of
the most closely contested races of the
dny. All the horses lacked was speed,
but as they were both shy In this quality, which is so very essential to a race
horse, the event proved very interesting. Murray's horse won by only half
n length.
The next event, and one which perhaps furnished more amusement than
any of the others, was the prospectors'
nice. The conditions of this event
were: the contestants had to start at a
quarter mile post, riding one -horse
nnd lending a pack horse, and when in
front of the grand stand a pack had to
he put on wiih a diamond hitch, and
then leading the packed horse a run
wns to be made for the quarter mile
post In this race there were three
entries, L, Slone, A. McDonald and B.
W. Bubar. The race was more of a
lest of the speed of the men to pack
than of the horses lo run. At the out*
start Buhar's pack horse pulled away,
mul before It was recovered the other
iwo had reached the point to com
nieiice packing operations, Alex,
proved a little slow lu adjusting the
ropes and bad to he content with sec
ond money, Slone winning lirst.
Thu bicycle race was next In order,
nnd brought nut three entries, W,
Melville, II. H. I'annell nnd 0. Phillips,   Melville wou tbe flrst and third
heats and waa given Hrst money s Pan-
nell winning second.
After lunch tbe sport* were resumed,
the Hrst event being the novelty race,
for which four horses were entered;
Duck, owned by J, J. Flood, Emmert's
Charlie, A. W. Hailey'a Uipsy and B.
W. Buhar's Alexander. Dock proved
o be tbe best all round hone, arriving
tt the wire several feet in advance of
harlie, who won second money.
The hoys' sack race afforded much
amusement. The priie* were won by
W. Munroe and N. Mnnroe.
Tbe tf)0 yards dash brought out some
Hne specimens of the English Thoroughbred. Five bone* were entered.
These were L. Stone'* Bane, __neas'
Redbird, J. J. Flood'* Mollie,a, A.
Lee's Kaster Lilly and Ah Tuck's Joe.
It wa* expected that Tuck's horse
would make a good (bowing aa he
cleaned up nearly all the races at
Oreenwood last year, but when he got
alongside of real racehorses he brought
up the rear. Stone'* Babe had it all
her own way and wa* an easy winner,

with proper support would have had
hut one run off his pitching, the three

Bill is certainly u leader iu his line of
work and all those who saw him on
Saturday were loud in their praises of
his wonderful performance.
The town was beautifully decorated
aud presented a very pretty appearance. Many of the merchants and
hotelmen had gone to considerable expense and spent much time in making
their respective places of husiness up*
pear attractive on that day ; nnd they
succeeded admirably. Such elaborate
decorations assisted materially in
showing ot? the usually pretty town of
Midway to good advantage.
Every accommodation was provided
for the comfort of the visitors. The
grand stands were arranged so as their
occupants could watch the races froin
start lo Hnish or view the hasehnll
game, which wns going on at ihe same
time, as tbey desired, Fortunately
the seating capacity of t he grand stand
wa* greatly enlarged since last yenr,
ot hern Ise mere would have been a,
scarcity of seats to arcoinmodnte the
Urge crowd of visitors. The hotels
did their hest in endeavoring to attend to the wants of the people.
Every hotel wns provided with sufficient waiters to ihilt no one was
neglected. A numher of booths on
the ground provided lemonade, ice
cream nnd served lunches.
The committee was very fortunate
in securing the ahle services of Capt.
Roger of Chesaw and 0. I.. Thoinet
and A, Mardonnld of this place, us
judges of the horse races. Their decisions met wilb universal satisfaction
and these gentlemen are tn he complimented nn Ihe wny I heir decisions met

Auot her very important, or perhaps
the most important, part to pel form
successfully in n horse race is tho
starting, but in tins the committee
was equally attccessfltl in oblaining T.
J, Kelly, who has had considerable experience in horse taring. Not amiii-
tnur was beard against the starts

well for Mr. Kelly as il shows the impartial manner in which be performed

Taking everything into consideration

FERNIB, B. 0„ May 23.—Ono of the
worst coal mining disasters in the history of Hritish Colunihia occurred at
the Coal Creek mines at 7 o'clock last
night, when from IS to 150 men met.

depths of No. 2, ami not u man of over
100 employed In that, mine escaped tn

which are connected with No. 2, ubout
21 men i scaped,
The lirst intimation of the disaster
whicli thase nn the outside received
wjis a rush of coul dust and lire lo the
height of over l.UOU feet above I he fan.
Word was immediately sent to Fernie,
live miles from the mines, and inside
of 12 minutes from lhe Mine the accident occurred relief parties were at
work. It. Drennan, Dr. Bonnel and
True Weatherby were the first to enter
the mine. When about 5W) feet into
the workings Drennan was overcome

his two companions he would have
perished. On being removed tn Ihe
■outer iiir he rec

commence repairing ihe overcasts,
Tl.ejjvercnsts are Ihe pipes which enn
met the nir through the mine. As
ihey had been almost, completely destroyed it was! in possihle to enter owing
in I he ufterduinp which prevailed.
Volunteers were called for and a
seme of hiave men sprang to the work
andifin- t)early six hours this policy
was, pursued with tireless energy,
livery few minutes the men would
cnlli'|ise and were home to the outer'
air, and Iheir places were quickly tilled
by new volunteers.
The lirst hody recovered wns taken
fr mn No, 3 mine aliout 11 o'clock, and
was that of Willie Robertson, a lad of
13, Several hours elapsed and then
I luce more bodies were recovered.
Nunc of the victims gave the slightest
signs nf life and- were removed 'o the
wash house.
At la. in. the relief parties had penetrated so far I hat the gas became unbearable, and operations had to he
suspended for tut hour or two in order
to let the mine clear of the afterdamp.
Among those who escuped from No. 3
mine were :
C. Burrows, James Bake, P. McNeil
C. Dunlop, A. FaKjiiliarson, James
Cat'l', James Dobie, John .Sharp, H
Monahiin, 11. Salter and a number of
foreigners. /
Many acts of bravery were »itnessed
(luring the night. The heroic work nf
a miner named True Weatherby, who
lime and again entered the pit where
men weie falling all mound him, wus
particularly noticeable.
So far only tell bodies have been
taken from the mine and several days
will elapse hefore all are recovered.
The dead so fur recovered ure :
Steve Morgan, Joe Saiigulu, Willie
llohcrlsnii, Victor Johnson, John Lead*
beater, Frank Salter, John McLeod,
T. Fearful, Thomas Johnson, and a
miner whose name is unknown.
The mine is free from fire and the
bodies will Iw removed as fast as thu
lift Ul [lamp is ileared from the mine.
The rescuing parlies are working
four hour shifts and the compuny are
doing all in their power to assist in the
work, General SnueriniendentStbcket
and Superintendent Drennan have
heen on the scene ever since the acci-
dent, and Me Ad9\g ull in iheir power

1,009 men. Many nationalities are
represented hy the working' force at
the mine, the Slav element bciiijr predominant, although Sclrhdinngriuns,
Italians, English and Welsh uiluers
are well represented.
The mines are worked from levels.
Theie is no ascending or descending in
cages. The'ventilation of the mine
and removal of Inflammable gases wns

Low Grade nines.
Successfully exploited low -grade
mines are kept prominently hefore
possible investors in new mining enterprises ns examples of great mining
profits from small, lurrgins over low
working cost's. 'There 'fs something
fascinating iu the idea of putting n
dollar into one end of a mine and having the machinery deliver to you a
dollar and u splinter or u dollar and a
half uf the other end. It looks to tlie
outsider as simply finding money, and
lhat anybody could do it with a low
grade mine. The mischief in it, the
indeterminate element, is, what is a
low grade uiiniveJid how do you know
il. when you see it ? The experience of
ninny years of' tinning has' taught
miners that it is not easy to know the
real low grade mine offhand, und that,

The cause of the accident* is unknown, but th>' opinion of many of the

Thinks Two.Psr Cent Tsx Is Alright
Says the Mining Review : The governnient of Hritish Columbia lins ap.
pointed John II. McKilllgan, surveyor
of taxes and ins|icctor of revenue, who
ever he is, and whatever his long des*
srriplion nmy mean, to report on a
system of taxation for the province.
He reports he would make no reduction
in the two percent tax on mines, but
he would slightly Increase thc rate on
realty and personal property. He ail
heres to the present mineral tax, be
cause it is not more than is paid hy
mines across the line, If it were not
for fear of a vote of (.ensure we would
say that itis just as fair to compare
the brains of some men (0 those of an
ass, as it is t<> compare the taxation nn
mines here to that across the line.
McKilligan might be able to see the
conditions surrounding the brains of 11
mule were somewhat different from
those surrounding the brains of a mun,
but he appears wholly incapable of
understanding the differences between
mining operations here and operations
across the line, lf he had half the
anxiety for the welfare of the proyims
that he has for the support of the
policy of his masters, he could see producers here have no smeller trust to
guarantee Ihem $8.60pcrcwt. for lend,
the same as they bud across the line ;
lhat they pay here from 25 lo 50 per
cent more for all kinds of supplies than
they do acioss thu line, and thai there
arc many other conditions equally forcible against operation here that most
be considered before an honest enne
parlson 011 whicli to hase taxation 1 an
Im- properly made. It is liecaiise of
natural conditions we cannot say a
pound "f cheese is the same as a pom 1
of chalk, and because of artidcial con
ditions any governnient should sel to
work and remove thai, we cannot say
mining here Bhnuld he subject to Ihe
same taxation itis ntross tke- line,
(live iis the same conditions and our
mine owners will icadily consent to
1 lie two per cent tax without a murmur. 'Van you get these thing-

Shareholders of the Csscsde Mining
Company Elected New Officers.
The Cascade Gold Mining ft Milling
conipany has started out with a hrand
new set of directors and officers. This
is the result of an extraordinary meeting of shareholders which took plate
al the company's offices, Rossland. a
short lime «go. Much inside history
in connection wiih the company's
iiff'tirg is unwritten, but it is more or
less general knowledge that the directors elected last fall at the annual general meeting of the corporation did
not satisfy tbe shareholders who were
putting up the funds to operate the
mine, aud that the recent extraordinary meeting was the outcome ot the
The new directors are E. A, Oui-
mette of New York, E. W. Thomas
and H. A. Arnold of Philadelphia, and
William B. Townsend, EugeneOroteau
and V. 0. Lalonde of Rossland, with
Robert Robertson of Nelson. Following the shareholders' meeting, at which
there was a full quorum of 20, the directors convened and appointed the
following executive officers:
K. N. ('iiiinette, president ; Judge
William li. Townsend, vice president;
Eugeii" Ooteati, secretary treasurer.
Thi* company's auditor, \V. H, Paid
ing, presented a financial statement,
which was unanimously adopted.
The statement is issued lhat the
company's affairs are in a most satisfactory condition, and that shipments
are to he resumed as soon as the
wagon road to the Columbia k West
ern railroad is in shape for traffic. A
considerable amount of ore has heen
collected on the dumps and is immediately available for shipment, while
even a larger amount, is broken down
in the stopes, and can be readily moved
when required. At present the crew
is confined to four men, who are drifting in the main tunnel, This work is
to he continued until a larger force is
required by reason of the commencement of shipments.
Another interesting feature in connection with the Cascade company's
programme is the construction of a
concentrator for the purpose of treating the ores from the mine and from
other properties in the vicinity, including the Bonanza, on which work is to
he started shortly.
The Dominion Oovernrnent Selected
50,000 Acres In the Vicinity
of florrlssey Creek.
Victoria, May 29.—A Times Ottawa
special says : The Dominion government. ha« passed tin  order-in council
Iwtlng 50,1X10 acres of roal lauds iu
the vicinity of Morrissey creek in the
Crow's Nest coal fields. The right to
do Ihis was obtained as one of the
concessions from the C. P. R. when
assistance was given that company to
construct the Crow's Nest Pass line.
It was estimated that the coal obtained from the O.P.B. in connection
with this transaction would be worth
over $20,000,01X1 at an estimated value
of five cents per ton, but the money
value was not considered so important
as Ibe possession of these lands by the
government, which would control the
price of coal to mining centres of that
province and prevent monopolies
among private owners of roul lands,
There has been considerable activity
on lhe part of the railway company
and Crow's Nest Pass Coal company
as to how this aiea was tn be selected.
The minister of the interior, who had
this matter in hand, has pursued a
very careful course, and hus succeeded
in making an excellent, selection. Mr.
Sifton did not entirely trust to the
reports of his own officers in selecting
these lands, but in addition secured
the services of an American expert to
report to him. After having the benelit of the information obtainable the
minister recommended t<i his colleagues
tlie lands near Motriisey creek, and an
order has heen passed adopting this
report. J, McEvoy, who made a geo
logical examination of the Crow's ."est
Pass coal fields wilh a view of determining the extent and the relations of
the coal deposits in that area, speaks
very highly of the coal seams in the
Morrissey creek district. An officer
of the interior department, who has
some special knowledge on Ihis subject,
says that ihere is enough coal in the
lands selected hy the government to
clear otf the public debt of the Dominion.

Notes From Ottawa.
Victoria, May 21,—An Ottawa special says that the governor of the
Windward Islands asks that $25,000 be
voted hy the Dominion to be sent in
The fisheries conference closed today.
Nothing definite resulted, but the
opinion was general that the Dominion
was the proper authority to ad mi nisi er
the fisheries in the country's interests,
The V. V. k E, applied today for
approval of Ihe plans for the branch
to Colunihia and Urand Forks,
The Kettle Valley's solicitor opposed,
who held that the Oreat Northern was
behind it, and that there wai no evidence of the company's intention to
build the main line, And that this was
onlv to divert the traffic south.
Blair allowed the application to
stand until Ihe company showed its
intention of building the inaiu Hue.     j
