I'he dawning uf the day iu Cranbrook was far Irom propitious for a
celebration. Tbe heavens opened up
at an early hour and the rain came
■down in torrents. No doubt many
were deterr«d from going to Moyie on
account ol the prospects, but notwithstanding lbe gloomy outlook,
about ititi excursionists were at the
station waiting lot tbe train that
bad gone to Bayard, Marysville and
Kimberley to pick up tbe people at
that emi of tbe district. There were
a lew unavoidable delays, but Conductor Cavin took the train into
Moyie before 11 o'clock, where the
visitors were greeted by the strains
of music from a band that had been
organized only a few days. Alter

Yahk i.ir tho eoniiiigrnt of visitors
at that end ot the district. Moyie
was especially favored on thai day
by the powers iu charge ol the
weather, as there was not a sign of

only a slight shower. The program
was *ot Introduced until after the
visitors had had un opportunity to

The big event "I the day so Ini as

was ilu* hose reel hut li-'tw.-n. Moyie
ant   Ci.inl.rook.      Tl ihi-i  event a
had Ilieii .idvoeate-t and enthusiastic
siijipm lerk, hm ihe ev.-t.t lhat
hiiiught out the betting was the hose
r»s*l race. In the t»»ss up Managei
Bradley won the choice and naturally
t.iok second,      There were advantages
enjoywi by ihe Movie team Inasmuch
as tliey word running on iheir own
gioiiud wiih which they were familiar
and also handling fit-bit own liv drain
and wnter, with ItSVth nl which tliey
had had eonsunl practice. There
was quite a grade and this in ilsi-if
made a big difference, as the Cranhrook team had been running on
nearly level ground during lli.-ir practice at home. ll was . about li
o'clock whin the Moylo teaili g.-t in
position I'm the mil. The team made
a fine appcafhlicti and when,the shot
was fired they wM'e "'i i> * e ietui
aud made a good run ami were accurate on lheir coupling. Their time
iu getting water was 'Mt_ seconds,
wlm li was a very lair run and "■if
lhat would prove a winner il lhe
Cranbrook team   was delayed   ill lho
slightest tespecl 01 had an) kind ol
an accident. But the Cranbiook
boys were confident alter the Moyie
time bad been announced, and there
were more efforts than ever to get up
money on lhe home team by the
Cranbrook people. About ten minutes liter the Cranbiook team were
in position and carefully inspected by
Manager Biadley. He looked at
tbelr harness, at the hose, at everything to see that there was no chance
for a slip, and theu announced that
be was ready. The shot was tired
and that bunch of thoroughbreds
threw their beads in lhe air and
started down the course. I»d they
run ? Bid you ever see a derby .'
Bid you ever ste a fast mail making
up lost time '. Bid you ever see a
jack rabbit wllh hounds after it on a
prairie ? II you have never seen
any of these and were not at Moyie
Saturday, you can have no idea how
those boys got over that ground.
Along the course on both sides were
Cranbrook rooters, and how tliey did
yell. Hats were ofl and Webaler •«.
dictionary would have hardly held
tbe words ol encouragement that
were shouted foiib wiih the Intensity and force of gnus oi a Japanese
warship. At the end where the
coupling had lo be matte, there was
a slight slip and at the hydrant, the
hose was dropped. Tliere was a
belcl period ol awful suspense. There
was a cry for water. Each sixteenth
part of a second seemed an hour of
agony. Then suddenly 1 ha t snake'-
tike coll of white hose look ou life.
Water with all the force that a head
secured up 011 St. Eugene mountain,
was rus-bibg to the nozzle A thousand eyes weic watching, live hundred
hearts stood still, a mass uf humanity waited breathlessly tor tho spray
thai was to tell lhe tali-. Suddenly
with a crack like a pistol, it broke
through the do/vie end and described
an arc toward tho sky. Then there
was silence, a silence that was so
intense that il vvas painful; a silence
ot not a second jet 10 many it must
have heen minutes fraught us it was
with anxiety, fear ami hope. "27 and
2 5ths" elicit Vie. Rollins, and IIipii
pandemonium reigned, Cranhrook
enthusiasts went wild right thete.
Tliey met the runners, they shook
their hands, they pounded tlietn ou
the back, until victory must have
scented naught hut cruel torture, they
danced and all joined In one grand
warwhoop of victory that must have
been hcartl in Craiibrook itself. It
was a scent, that lias never had its
equal iu this district, and it lasted
until nature could stand no more,
and from lack of physical endurance
they resumed a rational condition
once more. And Moyie in their defeat showed their true stuff. They
shook bunds aud tliey joined iu tlio
congratulations, and on every band
could be heard the universal expression, "It was a great race and you
defeated us fairly." I'he Harvie cup
was secured and carried about us an
emblem of the victory won, anil then
placed in charge of Secretary Roberts wbo brought it safely home that
night. But on Labor Bay the Moyie
team will be in Cranbrook with the
avowed purpose ol carrying tbe cup
back to the city by the lake.
The rock drilling contest attracted

Cranbrook as a whole, and the
Cranhrook lire department in particular, owe a great deal to Fred Brad-
Icy (or the work he has done for the
department since its organization, and
especially for his untiring zeal in behalf ol the boys in preparing tor the
hose reel contest. The Herald knows
that this sentiment is heartily endorsed by every citizen ol Cranbrook.

Everybody says it now.
Nelson Tribune :—Probably the
most Important news that has
reaihed Kootenay for many a day is
that the lleberlein process at Marys
ville smelter is a pronounced success.
11 has now been running several
weeks, and has done all that was
asked or expected of it. Just what
this involves can hardly he realized,
bit it means at least that there is an
actual saving of $5 a ton in the
treatment of silver-lead ores of a certain grade, that the other lead
smelters In the Kootenay will have
to adopt the process, and that the
produrer should benefit to the extent
of %i a ton on a 60 per cent. lead nre
or concentrate. Wc imagine this
will do more than tax or tariff legislation to stifle the complaints of lead
ore miners, and by solving the problem of cheap treatment it should stimulate production to an extent hitherto unknown in the Slocan, Just
how this economic problem lias been
solved may be gathered from the fact
that the lleberlein process is a direct
as compared   wltb an   Indirect one.

And a   white    violet,   so    pure and

With humbleness and grace they covered it.
Made purity and sadness near to

Courage and sweetness In misfortunes
And     out      of   this   they    moulded

Be pleasant to everyone everywhere.
Be willing to .sacrifice you own personal enjoyment if by doing r,o you

Do alt this and set' when night comes

There was no post olliee here iu tlmse

count ot  the game published  in the
News is said to be a very (air one:
Those who have seen lacrosse
matches in this city from the time
that the game has grown in popularity here, declare that Nelson has
never witnessed a finer game of
lacrosse than that seen by 18UU spectators on the recreation grounds yesterday between Craubrook aud Nelson. The game was last throughout. It was never at any one moment overwhelmingly in favor of
either side. Its Interest never flagged, and Wtien at last the decision ol
lhe sports committee, held immediately after the game, awarded the decl-
Ion to the visitors, it met with lhe
hearty support ol everybody present,
The game was rough and was marked
by three separate mlXUpB, but the referee, Dr. Buggins, would not uphold
methods of this kind and the offenders
were promptly ruled off.
The first goal was won by Nelson,
hot by MoCulloch, inside ol lour
minutes. This rather woke up the
visitors, much the heavier and strong-
team and confident of victory, and
within three minutes more'the next
goal was scored for the visitors by
Clothier. The Nelson team played
as hard as Ihey knew how; lhe juniors honored by their presence on- the
learn, did their best to justify their [
presence, and elicited the applause of
Hie spectators. Steed being especially
lo the front. But lor the remainder
of the first quarter neither side scored nnd time was called with honors
even. |
In the next quarter the struggle
was fierce, but at length, after seven
minutes play, Jamieson secured a
second goal for Nelson and the air
was rent by the shouts of the Nel-
sonites who scarcely hoped to see
their team in the lead. Cranbrook
did its best to even up the score, but
Carruthers scored the final goal fo
the visitors within a minute or twi
tu ihe call of the whistle.
Al the finish tbe visitors, ilu
stronger team, wished lo play it oui
but captain Fox felt Ihal He colli,
not agree m justice to his men. 'thi

On evidence submitted we undertook to recommend the Mom)I entertainers to the Nelson public. We did
so because* we believe that most of
the shows that come here, and have
ihe gall to charge a dollar, would be
dear at 25 cents, and should he dis-
couraged. Nelson people always patronize a good show if they know beforehand that it is all right, but after being fooled many times, they have
become warv and may go to the
other extreme and give the cold
shoulder to a good production. The
Morrcll show is clever, laudable, and
entirely free from vulgarity—a good
family entertainment. The moving
pictures are better than the average,
and the Mount Pfelee series excellent.
On short notice the house was three
parts filled last night. In the interests of an amusing show worth more

llll'   1H.WHNKV   TRAIL
Ei Lieutenant Governor Dewdney,
in teplj t>> ft lettei Irom John Dean,
says the Ko stand Miner, gives the
lollowing particulars concerning the
construction ol tire Uewdnej trail
From Hope to Alliaon's ranch neai
l'i uu i-i.m, a distance ui about i"
miles, tlie trail was built by Messr.**.
Dewdnej and Moberly in 1859-UO.
They obtained a contract Irom
Colonel Moody, ul the ltu>al Engin
eers, who was then in charge ol pun
in works, at MM pel mile I'hi
trail was com it,it U'-i lo reach thi
Siu.iik.iiiK'. n country, which at thai
| nun' had considerable alluvial mining
: in operation. The alluvial mines extended Irom Sawmill creek t.i Koch
creek, ami su Important was the dis
i tin i thought t.i in- thai tho government proposed to build a wagon road
ovei tin* trail mine, and did construe!
some 'i'i iiiilrs ul it Irom Hope, lhc
] first nine miles ol which Messrs.
Dewdney and Moberly built, am) the
Royal lingineers the balance. The
Cariboo excitement broke oul and al-
i most depopulated Uu* Slmilkainceii
district, leaving it virtually in lhe
hands id the Chinese, ami Uierclun
ilu* governmenl discontinued wmk on
tin* wagon road.
In March,  1805,   lho lletitenat gov
Bfiior, K. Seymour, asked Mr. Dewdney il In* would undertake to exploit-,
lay oul ami superintend lhu construction   ol a   pack   nnil   through    Uu
southern boundary country, us ii was
of  Hn* greatest  importance  that   the
coast people should be able to    semi
goods through Canadian country    t
Wild Horse   creek   near l-'oii Steel
where a   very active   placer   mining
camp   had   just  slarU.il, and    wh-lc
was being supplied with goods   inn
Lowlstoa,  Idaho, ami other American
| points.
Mr. Dewdney undertook the wmk
nnd started over iho Hope mountains
in April, packing supplies on Indians
'backs over the snow and down ilk'
Slmilkameen river, which was comparatively opeu country where no exploration was necessary The real
work ol looking out the line coin
tnenced Irom Rock creok east.
After considerable exploration Mr
Dewdney determined on the route and
put the first party to work building
the trail at Wild Horse some time
in June, 1805, William Fernie, the
discoverer of the Crow;; Nest coal
measures, being his foreman, Ke.\
he put two parties at work at ilu
crossing of the Columbia river oi
either side, piu-hed the work wiih all
speed, and by the middle of Sepiem
ber was able to report the trail open
for pack trams. The cost of the
work was $74,000. Credits were
given to Mr. Dewdney on the diHerenl
customs houses and the gold commissioners1 ofllces, and most of the wagei.
were paid m gold dust. There Were
no settlements in ihe country, and
lhe Indian': of the Kootenay would
not take money, only  truck.
The length ol the trail on which
work was done was, us far as Mr.
Dewdney can recollect, iill miles.
The party crossed the Columbia rivet
by swimming lheir horses (afterwards a ferry was established) neai
the mouth of the I'eud rt'Oreillft river,
and went up that stream to the Sal
mon river, which was crossed, lollowing up tme u( the branches to the
summit, Thenee the party went
down Summit creek to the Koot-cna)
bottom, which al that time took
some engineering to cross and somi

Dear Sir ;-
I notice In your last issue a lettei
Irom Mr. Robson, of Mayook, complaining of the wanton destruction ol
game in his vicinity. I wish then
were more like liim who would lakt
some interest in these mailers. Tin
law is severe on olTeiices of ihis kind,
but tho great difficulty is to enforce
Uie law; and lo prove the offence Is
almost impossible, without lhe cooperation of the observers. These
things do not occur when constables
or peace ollieers are present, and they
don't reside in the hush. A.s game
warden Ior this district 1 have had
distributed 500 notices tillering a reward for information leading to con
victlon of offenders, and informers
are also entitled to halt the line Inflicted, the maximum in some eases
$250.00. I shall he glad ol the assistance of any person in taking vig
nrous measures for the preserva
lion  of game.

unknown possibilities for coining generations ''
The detailed account of the Clooilcr-
haui-Lllaelistock western mining in-
tcrets is giviu in tbe Toronto Hlobe
ol a week ago, as follows :—
The largest mining deal in lbe 1,1s-
lory ol Canada was e.,i,aui,„„ated
jesierday when ,tbo control of the
Vt'ar liagle, Centre Slai and St.
Eugene mines in BriUsb Columbia
passed Irom tbe hands ol the tluo.lcr-
_»ii!-Blackslock syndicate to a group
ol capitalists which is largely representative ol the railway and smelling
interests ol the west. The negotiations, which began wiih a proposal
lor tlie amalgamation ol the smelter
and mining properties and ended v>ltli
the sale outright ol the mines, have
been in progress tor several weeks.
The vendors are Mr. Thomas Cllbbs
Biackstock, the surviving member ot
tbe Uood-rtami—acajiook ayndicate,
and the Oooderbam estate, aud the
purchasers are Toronto, Montreal and
New Yoik capitalists.
Tne Toronto men are Mr. W. D.
Matthews, and Mr. E. B. Osier, M.P.,
and the Montreal member ol tlie new
directorate will probably be Mr. C.
il. Hosmer. The negotiations were
carried on by Mr. VI. J. Aldridge,
the manager ol the mining interests
of Uie Canadian Pacific railway, and
the result means a complete unity ol
tlie railway, smelting and mining business in tbe Kootenays. To the lew
linanctal men who became aware ol
tbo transaction last night the price
paid for tl* stock, tB35,00lJ, appeared r.matkably low, especially in consideration ot the lact that the Irans-
ler carried wilb tt real estntc, ln-
cludiug government bounties, supplies
aud cash, aggregating neatly ball a
million dollars.
The change in the ownership ol the
properties Is ot vital importance to
the west, (or it bas been long recognized that the li eight and smelling
charges were an uiisui'mountable barrier to tbe piolilablc working ol the
low-grade ores. With the lluee great
Interests pooled ll Is almost certain
that satisfactory piogicss can be
made and that having secured the
properties at so low a llgur,', lhe
new owners, who will luce an industrial rather than a milling proposition
have every guarantee of success. The
development ol the silver and lead Industries are also assured in be an
outcome ot the transaction
W. D. Mattbews confirmed the facl
regarding the sale ol lhe properties
yesterday, but would not speak of Ute
plant ot the syndicate. He sail
that a provisional directorate would
be formed Immediately, and it is believed that some Boston capital may
come in before the final announcement
as to the identity ol the other financial backers is made. The causes
which led up lo the purchase ol the
properties by the Aldiidgc group arc
known .to have boon the death of
George Qoodcrham aud the enforced
temporary retirement Irom business
ol Mr. Biackstock.   '
The history ol the mining operations in the Kootenays during the
past nine years has been one ol continual struggle. Notwithstanding
tbe lact that capital bas been poured
without stint into the miues, It has
been lound impossible   to make the
dincre,;t companies, under existing
conditions, pay the dividends expected ol them. For the past year or
two efforts bave been made to pro
mote an amalgamation of the large
mining interests, with a view ot reducing expenses and securing, it is
understood, was just on lhc point of
consummation when it was proposed
by the Canadian I'acllic railway interests to purchase the shares of the
C.oaderham-Blackstoek syndicate tn
Uie several mines which it controlled.
Mr. Goodcrham's recent death and
the illness of Mr. Biackstock caused
this proposal to be received by Mr.
lllackstock, with the result that when
the matter was presented to lhe executors ol the late Mr. Gooderliam,
who had financed lhe various mining
Interests for the past nine years,
they decided to close with the oiler
made by the Canadian Paeilic railway
group. Tho control ol the War
Eagle and Centre Slat mines thus
passed Into the hands ol tlie new
T. G. Biackstock, when inlotmed by
the Globe last night that the rumors
of the purchase had been confirmed by
tin other parties to the contract,
said tliat it was quite tnie tbe transfer had taken place, but that ol
course, be could not speak regarding
tbe plans tl.e new owners ot tbe
stock proposed to adopt. He said,
however, that iu lheir action the executors ol tbe late Mr. Gooderliam
were moved chiefly by the fact that
tt was In the Interest ol Uie other
shareholders ol the different companies controlled by tbe Gooderham-
Blackstock syndicate that these Interests should bave such a financial
backing as tt was Impossible for the
estate ot a d-ccased person to give.
To Induce tbe -members of the Aid-
rldgo group to take up the enterprise
he said, has accepted not only a very
low price Ior their shales, but In addition'to that the syndicate had paid
oil the indebtedness ol the War Eagle
company, amounting to over 15Q0,-
UHO, thus leaving It free from all liabilities save the current working expenses.
Another condition stipulated Ior by
the vendors was that the Aldriilgc
syndicate should treat ihe other
shareholders ol the three companies
involved, in the event ol an amalgamation or of a holding company being formed, In such a way that all
lbe shares beld by outsiders would be
ou a parity wltb the slock purchased
by lhc syndicate. It would seem
from this that the mines bave now-
passed into a close alliance with llie
Canadian Pacific railway at a minimum cost and under tlie most lavn,-
able conditions for securing adequate
The establishment ol the Trail smeller as a part ot tlie mining proposition will, it Is thought, atlord an Individual guarantee of dividends. The
trouble ot the mines in the Kootenays
Is that while they appear to have
ample ore to keep them going from
year to year It bas been impossible
to get a large tonnage for cheap
smelting, and the profits should be
sufficient to pay fair dividends on a
reasonable capitalization.
War Eagle stock was placed on the
market first at 11.25 a share, and
sold up to J3.75 in the height ol the
mining boom.
The stock has been lor months inactive on the .market, and tbe tew
sales have been around 10c. Within
the past tew fays there has been a
steady demand lur the stock Irom
some mysterious source, and .he
stock has advanced. Five hundred
shares were purchased on the mark.t
board of the stock -exchange yesterday at IH. »nd a similar block
Twught In the alUrnaon cost tbe purchaser 20.

A big surplus and a big majority is
often a dangerous condition for the
party in power. The Liberals of
Canada should bear  tins iu mind,
Both Liberals ami Conservatives
art* flocking into Alberni to save that
district. July is a hard month for
hot air on the coast.
Thu dcaih ol Secretary of Stale
Hays gave rise to a feeling of sorrow
in every civilized country. The deceased was a man of brilliant pails
who commanded the respect of all
countries, and one ol the strongest
notes ol sympathy received by the
government of the United Status was
that of King Edward, who lelt proud
ol the fact that he had been and was
a personal friend of the dead diplomat.
The condition of affairs in the Flathead are no better to-day than Ihey
were when the lands were opened lo)
staking. As a coiiset'iieno.' the iiiilic-
paU'd rush in that country ol wealth
has not developed, anil the laud thai
hhotild be filled with energetic penpli
and hundreds of thousands iu capital,
is no better than it was decades ago
when the Indians roamed those values in search of game. What is the
reason? It is simply the absence of
s-ensible legislation. The people ot
the province have been waiting under
promises that have failed to materialize. The time has lome, in lact
it is long past, when lhe governmenl
ishould take a firm stand and legislate in favor of progress instead of
sliil hanging onto the dilatory tactics. It savors too much ol political graft, or political weakness. Tli.it
suction is cither one of the richest
parts ol East Kootenay, or it is uoth
ing but grazing land. II il holds Unnatural wealth that exports claim Ior
it, there should be thousands of
people iu there now, and thousands
more to follow. Mul men will not
put in money on uncertainties so far
as titles are concerned. It is up to
the government to add gieally to the
wealth of this district or to persist
in its policy of Inactivity, Whal
shall it Iw ?
Have you people of Cranhrook figured up your taxes for this year?
Have you noted the increase ? When
yoti get them figured up and .-.friko a
total, take a sheet of paper and figure
up what the public improvements in
Cranbrook have cost the past year.
Who have built the sidewalks ? The
people by private subscription. Who
has fixed the streets and repaired the
sidewalks this year ? No one. Who
has cleared the slrcels on the hill
where property has buen sold and
handsome homes erected ? No one.
What do the people ol Cranhrook
want ? Do they desire to pay oul
taxes and increased taxes and get
little or nothing in return, or do they
want a square deal. There is something coming from the governmenl
and there Is something coming from
the townsite company. He who ask-
eth nothing In this world getteth
mighty little as he is classified as easy
and passed up like a white chip.    So
long as the people ot Cianbrook are
satisfied with paying increased taxes
each year and getting nothing back
in tin- way of Improvements just so
long will they have to keep it up.
And just so long as the property
owners arc satisfied with going down
in their pockets when anything
done to help the town just that long
will they have to do it. What
more, ll the people ate pleased with
xisling coiiditii.ns the Herald can
stand it. ll has sUmtl il tor a long;

perhaps there are a few people who,
when they scan their tax receipts and
figure in their own mind as to what
benefits they have received, might ob-

that is possible about the line that
he has marked out in life. After
three years ot wmk m Listowcll,
feeling that the field was limited and
the need of a more varied experience,
Mr. Heid went to Purl Perry to take
a position in a large departmental
store. After sume time in lhat establishment he engaged in business in
his own behalf and met with satisfactory success. After five years residence in Port Perry he like many others in Ontario, became impressed with
the possibility of Manitoba and arranged to go into business in Nee-
puwa, at that time the garden spot
of that province, with a record ol one
million bushels of wheat marketed in
one year. Netpawa is an Indian
name meaning "plenty" and it seems
that it was well chosen. Mr. Reid
remained in business in that town
until his health failed and the doctors
said that it would be necessary Ior
him to seek a location with a less
rigorous climate. With this idea In
view he started for California hy way
uf the Ciinadian Pacific, but as O. B.
McDermolt, of ({olden, .was an old
time friend he stopped oil there tor a
day or two. Little things sometimes
change one's whole course of life
Mr. McDermobt was desirious of taking a trip east and he prevailed upon
Mr. Held to remain in Gulden and
take care nf the bu:dness for a few1
months. It was during this period
that Mr. Reid gol in touch with the
construction of the Crows Nest line,
and within a few weeks he took n trip
lo Wardner by stage, on the same
seal with him was E. II. Small, and
as tliey got hetier acquainted Mr.
Keid laid out bis plans and Mr.

Mr. Buchanan estimates that the!
total bounty to be paid will he about
$810,000 out or the If.uii.noii set aside
by the government for lhat purpose.
What the bounty has meant to the
lead production ol the province can
well be" seen by glancing at the yearly
reports of the minister of mines.
These, although they run from January to December, yet taken over
Wardner, Mr. Small remained I

Captain Gore, superintendent of the
C. P. R. Co.'s steamers in Kootenay
has received Instructions to build
new steamer to ply between Nelson
and Kootenay Landing, whieh Ior
speed and equipment will surpass any
fresh water steamer in British Col
umbia. The captain, who will have
entire charge of the construction, says
provision will be made to sleep 75
first-class passengers, which means
that the boat will be much
larger than the Rossland, now plying
on tlie Arrow lakes between West
Robsou aud Arrowhead. I'he specifications call for a speed of 18 mites
an hour. This will cut down lhe
present schedule time from Nelson to
Kootenay Landing from five hours to
three. Indeed, Captain Gore says
she will he able to make it in two
hours and three-quarters. As a
suit, passtngeis will he able to sleep
in Nelson and leave at least twn
hours later than al present. The cost
of the new steamer Is not definitely
stated, but it will nm up into six
