Defeats Elko In a Pretty Game of
Attendance  Was Not Large But
Enthusiasm Was At the
Top Notch.
The [first game of baseball on the
home grounds tbis season was played on
Saturday afternoon between lilko and
Craubrook, the latter winning by a score
ofSto?. While the day was an ideal
oue lor baseball tbe attendance was light
but the spectators made up in enthusiasm what they lacked iu numbers. The
game was close throughout and, while
both teams lacked practice aud made a
number of costly errors, they put up a
class of ball lhat gave eminent satisfaction to Ihe spectators and furnished more
excitement than has been seen on the
Athletic grounds before this season.
Before the game was called the admirers of the home team felt a little dubious
regarding tbe result ns the Elko boys
were a pretty husky looking lot of chaps
and as Jamieson, Cranbrook's only pitcher, had never been tried out it was not
known what he could do in a pinch, but
tbe result proved an agreeable surprise lo
all, tbe "kid" striking out sixteen men
and giving but two buses on balls, while
Bums, the southpaw twirier from lilko,
secured but nine strikeouts and walked
five men to first. Although they did not
win the KIks proved themselves thorough spoilsmen, taking their defeat
gracefully and departiug with the best
of feelings toward Cranbrookites.

The Oreal Dane.
J C. Drewery came in from Moyie
Sunday and spent the first of tbe week
In town. He was on his way to thc

Warm One and Lots of Fun
Is Promised.
During lhe past two weeks a number
of the towns in West Kootenay have
been holding athletic sports, tbe proceeds ol the games being turned ill to

game, Captain Watt of the pig skid aggregation, has gathered around him a
husky lot of fellows, und ns ihey comprise the best talent   in  town, ouiside ol
the regular team, a very exciting exhibition of the national game is promised.
This game should receive llie support
of every person iu town who can possibly attend, for aside from the fact that a
good evening's sport is assured, Hie pre
ceeds will be used iu a most praiseworthy
cause, ami will give many who have not
already done so, an opportunity to contribute their mite toward relieving the
widows antl orphans of the recent disaster in the Fernie mines.
Tbe band will be in attendance, an.l
the game will start promptly at 7:15.
The admission price is ouly two bits,
and it will be a golden opportunity to

■■Too Rich io Harry."
The production ol tbe '• lughabte farce
comedy. "Too Rich t.1 Many," at the
opera house Monday night was a rare
treat for the amusement lovers of Craubrook, ami the company was greeted
with 0 crowded house. The play is replete with fuuuy situations and up-to-
date and catchy songs, acl the audience
was not backward iu giving rent to their
appreciation. The company Is first class
iu every way 3nd. aside from the merits
ofthe Individual membeis, thoroughly
understand the art of ■.i-ii-.g printers' ink,
and the value of living op lo their at*
verlisements. Sbonld tbey at at,y time
play a return engagement here it is safe

"standing room only."
Football ijamc.
Last Friday eve mug We "Has Beens"
and the regular team played a football
match on tbe athletic grounds, which
resulted in favor of tbe rtgu.ars by a
score of 2 to 0. The game was holly
contested throughout, the first half ending wi-bout a score having been made.
At the beginning of tbe second half the
regulars rushed matters, and scored two
goals in rapid succession. It is greatly
to the credit of tbe old timers that, they
stood the pare so well, and had tbey
been In little better condition would
have made things more interesting for
the regulars. A Watt made a very cap-
aide and satisflai torji referee.
A Few Base Hits.
Beattie, with a little training, would
make n stnr rooter. He can make a
Comanche Indian take to tbe woods
when it comes to yelling, und the way
he can throw hi" arms around would be
big money to a Sbeetiie clothing dealer
And Rollins isn't too s'ow.
Hlrtz made a nice catch in center, but
it was a liltle too close to the ground.
Navin surprised the visitors when it
came to sprinting. He can steal second
as easily as getting  wet  in a rain storm
Several improvements are needed on
the grounds. The diamond should be
peeled, and a wire stretched to keep tbe
crowd back.
With a little better support, Cranbrook
could have a team to be proud of, The
spectators have always beeu treated to
good exhibitions wben the boys play
here, and have never seen tbem defeated
on their own grounds, which isareccrd
none of the other clubs in town can
boast of, And on the quiet, the baseball bovs have been the means of circulating several hundred dollars of outside
money In fhe town. Cheer up, and help
the boys along.
The lilko boys are always sure of a
warm welcome iu Cranbrook, They are
a decent lot and good sports
The game was played over a goad
many times in the hotels that night, but
the score always came out the same.
A return game will probably be played
In Klko in thc near future.
New Telephone Line.
The woik on the new telephone plant
is progressing as rapidly as circumstances ■■.ill permit. The poles, some
75 in all. ate being raised this week, aud
wire stringing is expected to commence
tbe eud of next week. The Klectrie
Light company is to be congratulated
ou their enterprise iu installing this
plant, and Tbe Ht-rald wishes I hem Ibe
success they so richly deserve.

The purses for horse races are good ones

Tbe Herald hns been requested to cored a statement made by it pertaining
to lhe Michel fire ofla-t week. In tbe
article this paper stated that Mr. l-'raser,
a former citizen oflhis place, was among
the victims uf the fire, and that, owing
to the fact tbat tbe company's store, of
which he is manager, was filled with explosives, be was unable to devote any
time to tbe saving of bis own property
as it was necessary for blm to bury the
explosives. This was an error, as the
company's magazine is situated a mile
from the store, and is perfectly fireproof, so an explosion from lhat source
was out of the question.

As llnrdim listened u whimsical determination moved Mm, und. loaning
a llttlo farther down, bo snld gonlly:
"All tbut Is very true, except thnt 1

His musical tones glided so easily
Into tho story thnt lho llttlo render

lug down on hers und Iu the lines of
the face Bhe snw only tho countenance
of the tired Charles. Thnt tho story
bud come to life wus nothing wonderful. All stork'-s were nllvo If one only
recognized it properly. Sho looked up
at him seriously, dropping her chin on
u supporting band.
"Why have you Blmved off your

i with fomlnlno Irrelevance,
' '*! nm loo young yet to have it." Bald
King Charles ns gravely In return,
j "That was later on, j ou know."
"Tho egg couldn't be there," observed tho reader thoughtfully, "because
wo have uo hens, but there's u dozen
bought from the store. They are In
the house, only Ihcj nro boiled hnrd,
ready for the picnic Hi a afternoon."
"Tbey will do," returitcd tho king
hastily, "Bring nil of them, und mind
you don't sny it word to nuy one, on

"1 know," snld Uh* render confidently, She hurried awny, leaving the book
of historical tales forgotten on the
floor. Hud not the king himself step
ped out of the leaves? li seemed to
the hungry mnn nn nge heforc she returned, holding up her skirts, In which
lay the promised eggs. He begun to
ent iii'-'in wiih Bturving baste, the
render watching him 11 Iticully.
"You do-vour them i n ger-ly, Just as
you should," Bhe observed, "but you
ought not to choke bo, 1'our oyes nn
almost sticking out."
"Get me soma water!" gnspod tho
king. "Thnt Insl ilu Is slicking half

"It's ubout u long word In bis book,

"Bring U up here on the buy. You

"Courso not," said the reader very
reproachfully. '"Sides, there's uo one

she scrambled up on the buy as she
spoke, while the king promptly resolved Hint he would rummage the house
for .suitable clothes. Meimwhllo their
nvo bends bent toguther over the page,
nnd tbo reader delivered her words
with a labored air, troubled by their
undue length:
■••King Chnrles might have succeeded in nfter life In making u good king,
for he had many talents, but he wus
always of it vu-cil lu-tliig dls-po-sl-tlou.'
Now, what does that menu?"
'•It menus," began the king bitterly,
nnd then a sudden intuition made him
ik over the edge of the hay. There
stood the two men whose presence on
his track ho bad most dreaded uud Mho
 t  bis  startled   gaze  with  cynical
"Come down!" said thc nearest
curtly.   "We don't want no nonsense."
The reader BOW the color die nwny
from tbu king'u fare, leaving a dull
ashen gray, nnd she wondered If so
ninny eggs bud disagreed with him,
She also peered over the edge.
"Who   are  those   people':"   she   denuded.   "Are they royalists?"
"Yen," snld the king quietly. He
laid dOWtl the book und iniidu bis wuy
to tho floor below, while the reader
slid nflei- him.
You didn't think we'd find you,"
grinned tho second man, "but we nre
ild hnuds nt this game. Put out your
wrist. I'll see there ain't no divorce
twist you and ,11m here."
The king held his wrist out silently,
while the wondering render looked on,
watching them handcuff him to the
mini culled Jim.
Are those sliver bracelets?" she nsked perplexedly. "And do you like him
so much tbut you let blm be fastened
to yon? Ib it because he Is so loyal to
you? Are you perfly sure everything
is nil right?"
•perfectly sure," returned tbe king,
With grent gentleness. "Goodby, little
iniilil.  Be certain I will never forget."
"Nor uie," she answered, a Bob catching In ber throat "I bnd you for such
n llttlo while, and now you ure going
nwny—going Into your kingdom,"
"Vcs, Into my kingdom."
"Will nil the people meet you? Will
thoy bo very glad?"
'•'They will be glad."
She suw the three forms pnss out of
sight, the king walking between them,
ns befitted bis rank. When tbey were
utterly gone, she thought forlornly oi
how she must return once more t«
mere empty puges. A sense of strong
desolution smote her, uud, illiiiblng
up again upon tbe hay, she cried herself softly to sleep.

In view of the success of tbe work
of restocking the Inland waters of
Ontario with parent buss during the
past, season, the work will probably
be carried on on a much larger scale
next year. Hon. Mr. Lntchtord will,
it is understood, ask the Legislature
for an Increased appropriation for
ihnl purpose at the coining session,
lie bus also under consideration the
establishment of rearing ponds in
the Province, from which a supply
of fish could readily bo obtained at
any season of the year, one of tlie
tlilllculUes now is in catching the
buss for transplanting in tho cool
weather of the fall, which is more
suituble for transportation, as tbey
I licnl uke   to    deeper   water. Tho
rearing ponds,  it. is believed, would
overcome this trouble.
Tho result ol tbe season's work
bus convinced tho officials of the do-
purtinenl that they are working in
tbo right direction, ns the people
more directly concerned have manifested n livelier interest in tbe welfare  of   the inland    flshorles,    The
t Muskoka district, to which the majority of the     buss  were  taken,   wus
I visited by more American tourists
than ever before, and  the traffic will
! doubtless Increase,     A wealthy New

those beautiful waters.

chuliged bis residence nnd rented bis

about, it, walked to the house, entered by means of the old familiar
latch-key, nnd it fortunately being

It is not universally known     that

of distress, mid persons Ignorant of

that morning given birth to a   son.

The Tribune bears from good authority that construction on the proposed
railway up the St. Maws river will be
commenced next year without fall,
This will be a great boom to the
country In general and something for
thc citizens of Marysvllle to look forward to as our town will without a
doubt be the base of supplies and head
quarters for construction.

London .lure 0,—Lord Kitchener In a
despatch Irom Pretoria, announced that
the llritish commissioners in the various
districts report tbat 1,154 Boers laid
down their anus yeitt-rday. Afterwards tbe .*ommln:iloners addressed the
Iloers who gave three hearty cheers for
King Edward, The best possible relations exist between the Boers and the
British and there bas beeu no hitch In
tha proceedings anywhere.
Vredefort Road, Orange River Colony, .inly 0.—General Christian DeWet,
addressing the Inmates of the concentration camp have explained ihe circumstances leading to the termination
of hostilities and urged the burghers to
do their utmost 10 show Great Britain
what good colonists ihe ltoer can malic.
Tlie speech made a favorable impression. General DjWet's wife will rejoin
the general here today.
Ui, Hon A, J. Balfour, tlie govern-
in i*nt leader in the house of Commons,
lu a speech ai a bat qnet In Loudon to
night, referred 10 the South African
war. He said the load was only thoroughly realized now lhat ll had been
removed ami thai peace had uot been
bought by 1111-ticccssary concessions,
Mr. Balfour said he believed the terms
of peace possessed every element of
certainly, permanence and stability,
and that a new and happier era bad
dawned In South Africa.
■To have acted upon tbe advice of
Lord Itisebery and Sir Henry Campbell*
Bannerman." the speaker, -'and bought
peace at the price of complete amnesty
would have been to put a premium on
rebellion, while to have negotiated with
Mr. Kruger and his advisers would have
been a mistake.''
Mr. Balfour said he could respect the
lighting burghers, but not tbe Cape
rebels. The contention that peace
might have been secured long ago was
untenable because Oaneral Botha then
demanded independence. "It would
have heen absolutely foolishness," added Mr. Balfour, "to have given up
everything at once for an absolute government.'1 Mr, Balfour devoted thc
latter part of his speech to ridiculing
tbe divided counsels of the Liberal
Taere ts still no doubt Information
respecting tbe formation of a British
shipping combination with thc CunarJ
line as the central and strongest link.
Canadian c111 rials are sanguine in their
forecasts ol llie ultimate success of the
movement, and Lord Sirathcona Is
zealously supporting it, but it is not yet
clear whelher the admirably and board
of trade will commit themselves to a
policy of paying subsidies on an eularg
ed scale Sir Christopher Furness and
other ship owners are making strcnuou9
efforts to Induce the Canard company
to break off negotiations wllh Morgan
and to assume tbe leadership In national
interests, but there Is no evidence of a
powerful combination yet in sight, nor
has an organizer of sufficient force
been disc ivered for a determined tight
in defence of the British maritime interests. Tne co operation of the Do
minion government is contldently pre.
dieted by Canadian officials it the Bri
tlsh government will pledge Laelf to
take up In earnest the cause of an In'
dependent commercial mailne. Gerald
Balfour is dii-playlng more Interest lu
the matter than Lord Sbelbourne. Ap.
parently this proposed British shipping
combine will not be so comprehensive
as at one time seemed probable, ll is
stated the Allan Une does not at present contemplate entering It but will
remain an active competitor outside,
unless fresh developments, now improL
able, arise.
Arthur Bilfour paid a well deserved
tribute to Lord Kitchener In tbe Commons, and Sir Henry Campbell-Bauner-
man cordially supported him laying
stress upon the ability shown In the negotiations of peace. The secret history
of the negotiations is slowly coming to
light. Kitchener was mote flexible and
merciful thnn Mllner throughout tbe
conference with the Boer leaders.
Milncr is now alleged to have opposed
strenuously the language compromise,
and Chamberlain Is believed to have
supported him, It Is also stated tbe
cabinet was divided on the subject, and
ILcks-li-ach warmly advocated Kitch •
net's views. Some of these reports are
without doubt exaggerated, but Kltche
ner's Ideas prevailed, It is safe to ar
sume. when tbe language compromise
was effected. The man of Irou, In tbe
long run. was the most flexible Inst 111
ment for the negotiations of peace
Whatever may have been the temporary differences of oplnluu In tbe cabinet
ll Is now united In defence of tbe treaty
and ls supported by public opinion.
Thc war oflice has cabled congratulations to Lord Kitchener, on the
energy, skill and patience with which
he conducted the long campaign in
Soulh Africa, and asked him to com-
mnnlcatc to tbelr troops the government's profound sense of their spirit ol
endurance, bravery and discipline, ami
also of their humanity, shown throughout the trying period.
Lord Kitchener replied, on behalf of
the army in South Africa, tendering Its
sincere thanks for the congratulations
of thc government which tecelve with
great satisfaction.
The organ of Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain, tbe Birmingham Post,
says, tbat on account of his age
and Infirmities, tbe British government
has waived Its claim for thc acknowledgement by Mr. Kruger of British
sovereignity over the Transvaal and
has guaranteed to all Boer delegates
In Europe a safe conduct to tbelr homes
lu South Afilca.
Hamilton, Bermuda, the Boer cfilcers
who have been living In the prison
camps on the Island near here, have
been allowed their liberty, on parole.
Several of tbem came ashore here to
day and were Interviewed. Generals
Cronje, Weasels. Both, and others were
extremely reticent; but, they said tbey
were glad the war was over and would
be delighted to gel back to their homes
It la understood that the rank and file
of the Boers will be allowed ashore In
batches of ten, Tne officers have been
invited to an "at home" at the government house.
