Word has been received t-hat President Lang has decided that the Cron-
hrook-Lethbrtdge lacrosse game shall
he plaved off al Frank on Monday,
August 20.
From queries we have received it
seems there are a great number of
our readers laboring under a wrong
impression as regards the lacrosse
rules. Tiie facts are that the winning of the protest, bv Cranbrook
simply annulled that game and placed the twn teams in the same position as before, witli Cranhrook one
game in the lead and one schedule
game to plav with Lethbridge. II
Lethbridge wins on the 2flth it will
make the series a tie and necessitate
the playing of another gam*.

While iu Cranbrouk yes-i-eiday Mr.
Melnnes related a rattier good story
at tlie expense of the U. S, secret
service officials.
lt seems that some days ago Mr.
Melnnes met Jacob Fleishman, Uie
jewelry salesman, In Fernie, and invited trim to Elkmouth for a few
days fishing, which invitation was
accepted. Before leaving Fernie
Mr. Fleishman was displaying bis
stock, which contained a goodly
number of unset diamonds, and some
one started tte report thai "Jake"
was alum 1. to make an attempt to
break into Uncle Sam's territory
without paying duty on the aforesaid gems. Th s story reached the
oars ol an official, who at once notified the authorities at Gateway.
When the train on which Mr. Fleishman left l^rnie arrived at the
boundary, two secret service men
boarded it, and, after a vain search
for their man, a-ecosted ulie conductor
who informed them the man they
sought left the train at Elkmouth.
This but confirmed tlieir suspicions
and tie two zealous officials immediately hit the trail in tliat direction, with visions of glory before
iheir eyes. in thc meantime Mr.
Fleishman returned to Elkmouth
after a haul day's fishing and early
retired to rest and slumber, About
midnight Alex. Watson was awakened liy two weary and dejecled men
who told lheir story of a hard day's
travel through the brush, aud after
describing lhe man and stating they
were informed te was endeavoring to
smuggle $20,000 wortji of diamonds
across Lhe line, asked Mr. Watson
for any informal iim in his possession. Mr. Watson took pity on tbe
■leseiples of Sherlock Holmes and
made them acquaint id with ibe facts
and I be discontented pair wended
'heir way home in dismal silence.
The next morning Mr. Fleishman departed without seeing Mr. Watson
and as yet he does not know how
closely le came to having his properly Confiscated ami himself placed in
durance vile.

When wv have seen what makes tin

After the lumber has gone from the
sorting table it goes for seasoning:
to the various alleys and piles and
in time finds its way to the mill,
whieh is excellently equipped with
entirely modern machinery. Next
the engine room is ap heavy Cnwan

Co. planer, lieyond it a Goldie A
McCulloch slicker. In the east end
of the building is a very powerful
rip-saw and near it a swing rut-off
saw. In lie center the mill foreman, Martin Thorpe, was erecting a
remarkable fine piece nf machinery,
a band re-saw, newly from Mie foc-
ory of Mersnon A Un,, Saginaw,

according to Mr. A. F. Krapfel, the
manager, With the hand re-saw and

Patmore Bros., of Cranbrook, and it
not alone satisfactory to the
management, bul is also an excel-
'ml> finished piece of work and
quite a credit Lo the firm respon-
lible for Its pro-pet installation and

The office staff consists of G. A.
Parker, as accountant. A. E. Edwards, having care of the stenographic and correspondence depart
fl, F. Krapiel is general manager
and has bun in charge Ior nearly
twelve     months. The plant     has
grown under lis hand, continues to
grow, and the end of the growth is
not for to-morrow, not the year
aficr next.
Speaking of the Cianbrook plant,
nf which L, M. Mansfield has the
local management, Mr. Krapiel, the
general manager of the company,
slated thit it would soon be moved
bodily to a point on Hospital
Creek within about iwo miles from
Craiibrook. Around that point they
have enough of standing timber, to
keep the saws spinning for the next
five years. Only sawing will be done
tliere, the rough lumber will be
shipped to Elko- The frame of a
new mill is in position at a point
about two miles east of Jaflray.
This will have easily a capacity of
40,000 feel a day aud though not a
big mill wttl be provided with all
modern Improvements, sleam feed,
and steam niggers for handling thi
logs, wilh live rolls lo the shipping
platform, li is intended to run a
spur of about iwo miles in lengUi
back from the C. P, It. to a lake,
which is conven.cntly situated in
their limits. This lake will ac-
commodale ten million leet of logs,
and those logs will be lifted in tne
ordinary way with a jack-chain onto
Lite trucks. ' The jack-chain will be
Operated by a donkey engine, which
will also operate a _ ineh cable
wound on a double drum for handling
Uie trucks from Uie lake to the
mill. The grade from mill to lake
is so perfect Uiat tills haulage will
represent but a very small expenditure of power. This is the first
lime this system of transport has
tufii tried in East Kootenay. There
i.s a sufficiency of timber round the
lake to keep the J affray plant supplied for the next live years ;to
There are quite a number of small
limits round .lafiiay, Senk creek,
Ha-ha creek and so oh which would
not justify tie erection of permanent
plants. It is the intention of the
Nortii Star company to handle such
propositions with suitable portable
plants which will enable the saws to
be placed in si tual inns where the
cost of logging will be reduced to
the lowest.
Like ihe Jaffray and Cranbrook
mills those portable plants will act
as feeders fnr the big planing mill at
Elko, which naturally enjoys an
advantage in freight rates to points
in Alberta and east nf us over Cranbiook and its neighborhood.
From these facts it will be seen
lhat an active and profitallile future
i.s assured for Uie Eikn establishment
for many vears to come. It seems
but reasonable to (link lhat the
permanent prosperity of the town
would spring from the activity aind
enterprise nf the Noitb Star Lumber company and to predict that
long before the company Will have
iis extensive limits exhausted, olher
industries will arise, nol the least
of which will be the harnessing nf Uie

Chicago. Aug. C—Will a deficit in
its accounts estimated close to
million dollars and with the whereabouts nf twn ot ils high officials unknown to the authorities, the Milwaukee Avenue Stale bank, one nf
the largest outlying banks in the
eity, was closed to-day by Slate
Hank Examiner C. C, .Tones. ' In tho
excitement following the hank's close
.1. C. Visser an official of the [{oval
league, who had nn dejinsit |n ibe
bank funds of that order, fell dead
of heart failure.
The failure was responsible for the
death of one nf ihe depositors and
led to Uie suicide of another man
who a monlh ago had placed his
earnings nf a lifetime in tbe institution for safe keeping. Henry
Koepke, a small grocer,' on hearing
that the bank had suspended, went to
the rear of bis slore and shot himself. He died a few minutes later
while being taken to a hospital.
Riotoitf scenes followed the announcement nf the failure and a large
force nf police struggled all day to
lci-ep an excited crowd nf depositors—
nearly all of them foreigners and
many of them women—from bursting
in the doors of the bank. The fact
that the bank was on the verge of
failure was first revealed by President Paul 0. Stens'land, one nf Ihe
absent officials. A letter to his
son, Theodore, who is vico-president,
written from St. Paul, and received
last Saturday, started lhe investigation which brought- abniil the stis-
Anolher sensational feature nf the
affair was the disappearance of the
cashier. Henry W. Herring, and tlm
issuing nf a warrant for bis arrest,
on a charge nf embezzlement. A
message ordering his apprehension
was sent to everv police station In
tTlis city, The firsl public aimniinee-
menf thnt the hank was in Iroithl
was the posting of n notice at th
beginning of banking bouts hv Hunk
Examiner P. V. Jones, stating tha
business hnd been suspended for Um
purpose of making nn examination
of the bank's affairs nnd that the
institution was in tbe hands of the
stale auditor.
The news spread rapidly throughout
the eity. The bank lor vears hint
been a popular depository fnr funds

clamorous crowd gathered before the
doors and demanded admission. An
lieipat-ing trouble, n score of policemen were hurried tn the scene. The
people were permit tod to file pnsl
the doors bearing the posted nnt Ice
nnd were compelled to keep moving.
Onlv those having keys to safe deposit vaults were allowed fo enter.

Victor RolMns, of the Cranbrook
hotel, although a bachelor, is a very
observing individual. The oilier day
Ihere was a talk in the hotel office
about matrimony, and "Vic," although not a pessimist, suddenly
turned tn a 'raveling man and said:
TH make a little bet with ynu,
You've been a viciim of matrimonv
for five years, hul I'll wager a good
cifiar that ynu can't, 'oh* hand,' tell,
your wife's height,   weight   and    the;
color of her eyes and hair. Quick
now—without slopping to ibink—is it
a go?"
■Sure," replied the married man
'I'll smoke on you."
"All right, go ahead with the description But lie careful—1 am acquainted with her. Ulut does she
"A hundred and thirty-three.
Thai's easy—we both got weighed a
few days ago."
"Very good, What's tte color of
licr hair11"
"Why, black, that is, pretty near
black—a sort of brownish ' black,
with a kind of a—er—reddish tinge."
■■'Gel out, that doesn't go. Red-
dish-hlaekish-'hrnwn doosiiH mean
anything.     How tall is she?"
"Well, the top of her head just
omes ifi my chin, and 1 am five feet
eleven inches. She's ahoul—let me
see—aboui live feel twn."
"What's  the color of her eyes?"
"Blue—no, by jinks! I believe
i hey're gray. ' Confound it! 1
liin-ss I lose'the bet. Seems to intone eye is blue, bui I distinctly remember looking at one nf l hem the
other day and it was gray. Or,
mnj'be it' was one of mv stenographer's eves 1 noticed. ' Darned if 1
".Insi so." scornfully remarked
Vic. "But    never     mind,    you
do .is well as lhe average man can.
Not one in ten can give an accurate
description of his wife.

works alung in such a ridiciuuiis
manner as ihat.
President Lang ordered the teams
io play over again on neutral
ground. Cranhrook wanted Fernie
or Frank chosen, bul Lethbridge oh-
ected, as Uie grounds in neither
place are regulation size. Let-h-
hridge suggesu-d Pincher Creek but
Cranbrook frowned on that.
At present it looks as though tin
league season would end in a mud

Michael J. Hancy, ot Toronto, is in
every sense of the word a man of
note, He is a civil engineer of
great natdral ability and extensive
experience. For manv vears junior
parinei oi the late Peter Ryan he
made liis mark as one ot the few
I'oniiaeiois m Canada who combined
a high scientific wiih a thoroughly
practical training. In ihe employ
ol   lhe       	
West, and later in 189? to 1900 be
estahli.sl.ed a record for speedy railroad construction on the Crows Nest
line, where he acquired lbe nickname of "Rush Hancy." Every car
which bi ought supplies into that
country boi e t bis legend. Since
I UUU lhe leslless energy ol Mr. Haney
lias found au oul let in many directions. He established lbe Canadian
Locomotive Manufactory at Mon-
tieal. aud iwo yea is later sold uut
to ibe American Locomotive coinpanj
ai a profit of several million dollars. Since then he has also completed a very ditlicull piece ul engineering woik in the construction ui
ihe llillshoio budge, near Clurlolle-
town, p. |-;. |. lie has now secured
the contract for ibe construction oi
lhe Michigan Central railway tunnel
undei the Hetioii river, between
WiUdsoi and Detroit. Several plans
and tenders had been prepared aud
iiihmii itxt for the work bill those
-..-iit in by lhe 'Toronto coiitracloi
were accepted, Mi. Honey proposes
to build the tunnel of concrete sections and sink them on piles.
Including the two approaches the
work will he about Iwo miles in
length and its progress will be wal-
lcugih and its progress will be
watched wnh a greal dival of Interest
by engineers and railway men. It is
said the plans were lirst suggested
years ago by the New Vork Eiigiueer-
News, although they have not been
patented and have consequently been
perfected and worked out by the
Canadian contractor who has just
secured ibis important work.
lu addition to all tbis professional
woik Mr. Honey is a governor of

reader, and original thinker, a man

The directors of the Crows Nest
Lacrosse league met in Frank yesterday to pass upon the protested game
between Cranbrook and I/ethhndge,
and the meeting resulted in the first
steps being taken toward holding a
big celAration here. The directors
decided the protested game no game,
which leaves Cranbrook and Lethbridge to play off for the championship.     It was decided to have    the
Nelson News:—Tbe richest free-gold
quartz, yet, found on the surface of a
lead in (he Camborne camp was discovered a few days ago in the Scott
creek region by Stanley Menlienick,
says the Camborne Miner.
Stanley Mendiiiick and Oeorge List
were spending a vacation in the lulls
and occupied their time in prospccl-
mg, little thinking that they would
strike quartz with gold visible lo the
naked eye, They were in tlie vicinity of the Sunset group when Mr,
Menhiniik observed a ledge of quartz,
on the surface, and breaking ofl _ tew
pieces of rock was amazed to heboid
line particles of gold sparkling in
countless numbei over the face of lbe
milky quartz. The prospectors examined ihe ground more closely ami
the precious metal was apparent in
every portion of ill.' lead tested and
upon mcasiiting the ore body it was
found to he iwo (eel in width They
li.u planted their posts and came to
invvn to record their remarkable lind.
The lucky treasure [millers brought
several samples of llle ore wilh I'hem,
aud we can say thai we have not
..ten any surface specimens in this
.amp lhat will beat tli em. The gold
is in tine particles freely dissem nal-
Cd over the surface and through the
Samples shown In fact they appear
as if the gold had been dusted on Ihe
quartz Uirough a pepper shaker.
Tht1 seciion in which the discovery
was made has always been looked
upon as a sjiver-lead districl, and the
fael that gold in such paying quantities has been found will stimulate
mining and prospecting there. No
work has been drme on the new location but if the quartz at depth
maintains Its surface character—the
presence of copper indicating that it
will—the find Ip. indeed a bonanza.
