I, A Hamilton, the C. V. R. land
commissioner, bas ju*.t returned from a
lengthy sojourn In southern Europe, and
while here Tuesdaj evening told The
Herald muoofhiswectiiig with V.Hyde
lliki i in London ii few weeks ago. Mr.
Hamilton, iu his quiet [way, pos esses a
keen sense "i humor, and no man appreciates a jok» more, He Baid that he
was silting in his room wiih his wife at
their London hotel vhen ihere came li
knock ut lhe door ' 1 was reading,"
said Mr. Hamilton, "and in answer to
my summons to con in, the door opened and 1 saw a gentleman enter whom I
thought wasa stranger, He wore a tall
beaver bat of the most fasblonabl'
block, a long, dink frock coal, stylish
waistcoat, collar and lie the latest, and
trousers in keeping. But when he spoke,
I recognized Hyde Haker, and could not
refrain ffrom glancing down tu his feet.
Alas! for Ins loyalty to Cranbrook,
The moccasins were goue, and in their
place were patent leather boots with a
surface like a plate glass mirror."' He
says that both Col. Baker and Hyde are
looking well, and tbat Hyde expects to
return to Craubrook some time next

The Lyceum company played in tbis
city last Friday night, per announcement, and the edilOl of The Herald desires lo make au abject apology lo his
readers. In company with nine other
patriots be entered i**o an agreement to
guarantee ibis company a good house,
and in letutii tin- pimple of Ctaubrook
were to have an entertainment that
wonld be satisfactory. The Lyceum
company arrived and they put up au entertainment that whs neither artistic,
funny or pleasing. The "stars" in the
theatrical firmament that had been so
liberally prai.-ed provtd to be lift 111 B of
the worst kind. Tw< scenes from Hani-
let made the hair Bland np on the heads
of those present, and gnve rise lo a long-
inn desire lo seek relief in some far
away nook. Il.nulel bad a voice thai
satisfied himself hut no one else, and n
nait like ji half-hack In a football game.
The ghosl had to be prompted fiom lhe
wing?, and Ophelia—well, poor girl, she
did ilie best she could In lhe comedy,
"The Man in Black," throughout the
three senseless and inane acts there was
hardly n rift of brightness to relieve the
monotony of mediocrity that stamped
every effort mode In Diet, it waa rruk
front beginning li cud, and not one
present could give ileven u half-hearted
approval. The people hud paid a good
price to see a good play by reasonably
goud acton*, ami they were gulled,badly
gulled. And right here is where our
apology comes in. We boosted lhat
show because the advance agent, wiih
his nerve and representations, made a
showing that convinced lhe committee
the company wss all right.   He had the
best of notices frum | apers In New Westminster, Kossland. Calgary and other
places, and with pristine simplicity we
said in our mind to the genial advance,
"Thuu art honest, and thou art great,"
and tbe columns of Tbe Herald were
opened to effusive praise of this attraction. And, to make the game stronger,
the manager of the opera house at Rossland telegraphed us that the Lyceum
company iiad just closed an engagement
there, and it was tbe best the town had
ever seen If that is true Rossland must
have been sorely aillicied by barnstormers, We said lhat the show would
be good; that the people of Cranbrook
could nol afford to miss it, etc., etc. We
retract all we said and apologize to the
people of Cranbrook. Like tbe other
members of the committee, we paid our
deficiency without a murmur. If tbe
show bad been right the committee
would have had no complaint. Tbey
bad gone into the matter with the lone
desire of giving lhe town a good entertainment, and if ihere was u surplus to
start a fund for fire hose. Suffice it to
say. there w.is nothing for hose, but the
lire of theatrical euthuslasm in the
hearts of that committee has been thoroughly subdued, and the next advance
agent lhat comes to Cranbrook fur a
guarantee will have lhe pleasure of receiving a practical illustration of tbe
cold, clammy eye and marble heart.
This notice, like those of last week, ts
free. It does not cost the Lyceum com
pauy a cent.

R. O. Jennings is working two gangs
of men, one ou the Antelope and the
other ou the El wood. He will increase
the forse iu the near future.
Indications point to a vast amount of
work being done in this district this season, aud the owners are confident that
some t>ood strikes will follow.
Qua Thiers has several men at work
on tbe Jewelry box, and everything is
looklltg well. We understand tbere is

John Muiptiy has finished the assessment woik on three of his claims, the
Daisy. Wolf and General, uud from the
work done is greatly pleased with the
showings obtained, especially so as he is
located next to several good properties.
J. W. R. Young, of the Perry Creek
Mining & Development company, has a
force of ten men at work iu this district,
pulling up buildings and cutting trails,
preparatory to doing considerable development work. Ah soon as these arrange*
tiients are completed Mr. Young will
start work witb a force of twenty men
on the properties of this company, which
include the Elk Horn, Ruby, Pearl and
Running Wolf.
John Murphy has brought down some
fine specimens of auriferous quartz from
his claims ou ferry creek. A good
showing of colors can be panned from
some of it. Part of his property adjoins
lhe Antelope group and he has one claim
showing a well defined ledge of about
twelve feet in thickness, adjoining the
property now being developed by tbe
company of which Mr. Young is manager, 	
The Pay Roll Group.
Mr. A. Smith, who returned on Tuesday, from working on the Pay Roll
group, at Palmers liar, kindly gave The
Herald representative the following particulars as to these claims. The group
consists of lhe Pay Roll, tbe Superintendent and tbe Paymaster, The work so
far has been done ou a big ledge, six
feet wide, which runs through all their
claims. This work consists of a tunnel
190 feet loug, and a shaft at the end of
the tunnel tweuly feet deep, giving a
depth of 100 feet on the ledge. This
big ledge is on a contact of quart-cite and
syanitic granite, carrying gold, galena
aud copper. At the present depth tbere
are eight or ten inches of ulid ore in tbe
hanging wall and four inches on thc
foot wall, and considerable ore shot
throughout the ledge. There is a wide
seam of talc on both walls. There are
five [small ledges crosscutting the big
ledge, varying In width from six inches
to two feet, all carrying good values.
A smelter test made at tbe Trail smelter
on the clean ore from the big ledge
showed gold, .03 of an ounce; copper,
7 2-5 per cent; silver, 20 ounces; lead, 20
per cent. Picked samples on the small
ledges gave an assay of $686 In all values. An average sample on lhe small
ledges gave $103.75 '" *•■• values, 42
ounces of silver und tbe balance in gold.
The Intention of those interested is to
sink tbe ptesent shaft to a depth of 100
feet, which will give a water level, and
the eppoarance uf tbe property when
(his work is completed will direct further
operations. Ore is now being sorted
and the first shipment will be made
about September 1.

Kitchener, B.C., July 8,—J. Wilhelm**.
a prospector from Spokane, who has
been exploring this country for the last
few years, has, with bis partner. Andreas
Pottlsen, at last been rewarded by finding one of the largest ami most promising mining properties in the Kootenays.
The lead they have discovered is an exceedingly tame one, of quart/ phorphyry,
loaded with iron pyrites, which in this
country carry high values in gold, silver
tnd copper, the latter showing well in
tbis particular claim. Mr. Willtelms
has sent some specimens to Aleck Itrown
Roofer, of Sprague street, Spokaue,
where any Interested may see them.
There have been some very promising
finds In Goat River district this season,
and the finders, many of whom are well
known in Spokane, are enthusiastic "ver
their properties, aud now that the Canadian Pacific railway is tunning through
this country and lhat the provincial government is building trails it is likely
that before this season |s over more than

to tap the North Slar, will leave the

\ Former Citiiea of Cranbrook Meets With
a .Sudden lui.
Word has been received that William
Retsor, who was well known by the
early residents of Cranbrook, while he
was associated with W. T. Kaake in the
Commercial hotel, was killed a week ago
in his dance hall at Port Hill. From
tbe story told it stems that Rtesor was
fighting with one of the inmates ofthe
dunce hall, when Deiirum, who is a
police officer, interfered to prevent the
woman being injured. Reesor then
turned on the police officer aud the latter beat a hasty retreat. In retiring he
stumbled and fell over a log. Reesor
advanced upon the prostrate officer, and
the latter drew a revolver and ordered
him to halt. Reesor paid no attention
to tbe command and JJenrum then fired,
the first bullet passing through Reesor's
heart. Tbe feeling in the vicinity of
Port Hil. is that the killing -.as justifiable.
Reesor was well known here. He
came to Cranbrook as a carpenter, and a
more steady or hardworking man than
he never lived in tbe town. After the
Commercial hotel was built he quit
working at his trade and commenced to
work in the bar. Wine, women and late
hours did the rest. From a steady citizen he developed into a rounder, and
was a great favorite on the "row" where
he spent his money freely. Disposing
of his interest in the Commercial, he
lift for Poit Hill-   the new town 011 the
Bedllugton road at the boundary line,
where lie opened a dance house and
commenced a career of all round toughness. The shooting was the culmination
of his life there, and 110 more than what
was expected.

The above gives some fads thai are
worth considering by the people of Hast
Kootenay, as well as those of Weal
Kootenay. Although the district ol
South Kast Kootenny is rapt "Ily coming
to the front on account of many vultin
ble properties of high grade ore that arc
being sought after, yet it is a well known
fact that from one end of the district to
the other, there nre vast deposits ol low
grade ore. When the times comes thnt
these bodies can be worked at a profil
the distiiet will be one great bee hive o
industry. Aud that lime is coming
Marvelous progress is being made in tin
economical treatment of ores, and pi i
haps there is not a district iu Hrltlsl
Columbia that will reap greater benefit8
than South East Kootenay. Investors
in .mining property are showing their
confidence in the district this season by
making heavy purchases in properties
that give the best of indications of being
permanent propositions. It is no longer
a question of doubt in South Kast Kootenay. It is now tm assured fact With
untold wealth in high grade properties,
snd the standard of value being rapidly
lowered In what will prove profitable
low grade properties, the future of this
district iB indeed a bright one.
