The Craihrooit Fair Furnished Much
Horse Races In the Afternoon and
Boxing Contest At
Monday was a streuuous day in Cranhrook. It .started with a foot race in
the morning, on which thousands of
dollars were bet) then fullowetl some
very good horse races, anil in the evening there was a boxing contest, find
later a banquet that lasted until! 2
o'clock in the morniug. lhe foot race
was a lluke, although u pretty contest,
the horse races were all right, the boxing
contest gave forth the ordor of falti-.ni,
and tbe banquet wns one of the most
enjoyable ever given in Craubrook.
Tbe individual who played the whole
string, engaged in the numerous discussions arising out of the foot race and
boxing contest, cheered the winner of
the horse races and participated in the
feast of reason at the banquet knew the
next morning lhat he had made a day of
In some ways the day was • success,
in others It was a failure, yet in the two
cases that failure could be charged up
against the proceedings, (he foot race
and the boxing match, the management
of the Cranbrook Athletic a* social ion
could not be held to blame by any
reasonable man.
Tbe Foot Race.
There was a foot race in Cranbrook
It was a great event and aroused more
interest and bard feelings than any sporting event pulled off in Ibis district.
Aud the end is uot yet.
The race was a match between Harry
Nevin of Cranbrook and F. J Mitchell
or fernie lor $500 a aide, Bui the purse
was the small part ot lhe total wagers
made. Monday mc ruing the Fernie
men were rushing around with their
bands full of bills hollering for bets Aa
a result by 10 o'clock several thousand
dollars bad been put up. Wben the
bank opened another big bunch of Crau
brook money floated Into the street and
the Fernie boys began to waver. Here
and Uiere a backer of Mitchell would be
heard to say, "Can't take any more, I'm
all in.'1 Tbis continued until after the
grounds were reached, when It became
impossible for Cranbrook to put up any
more coin lor lhe reason that no man
wllh Mitchell money could be found.
Kverything was good natnied, although
at first the Fernie men did a gootl deal
of blowing, but as llielr fifties and hundreds were promptly covered their belling enthusiasm gradually died until
finally they bail nothing to say and
Nevin money bad to go begging,
Tbe preliminaries ol the race were
quickly arranged. Boih men inspected
lhe track, it waa carefully measured by
both sides, aud tl. llaiues of the bank
nn.I !l Rcutley .*■! Fernie were selected
as starlets, and James Kyan and ft. II.
Miner ol Cranbrook and 11. Hunter of
1'1 tidier Creek, judges of tbe horse races
were named as the judges,
Il was ariangcd that Mr. Haines
should lire a pialol if the start was right
but tbat if It was not satisfactory lo Mr.
Hentley be was lo lire a second shot to
call them back.
Tbe started was made, Haines fired
ami the two men came down the track
like a whirlwind, neck and neck. In 20
or jo yards Nevin got the lead, but j ust
kept ahead up to the 60 yard point when
he pulled out and then the race was his.
Mitchell made a good struggle but he
was up against too switt a man and the
finish left blm at  least  six   feet In the
ami sent word to Mitchell to appeat and
run at 18:30, Word came back thnt he
roiihl not run liefore 1 o'clocx, nnd he
told K. J. Peltier just as he was leaving
the --rounds tbat he would be willing to
run again at 1 o'clock. Then came
further word from llie Fernie backers,
lhat the judges had nothing lo say, as
the articlea provided that the second
race might be ruu at any time during
tbat day. Again Ihe judges teleuted,
Imping lo keep goo il feeling ull around,
The crowd wailed until nearly 2 0 lock
and theu gave il up ami wenl h< me to
gel something to eat, coming mil m
tbe afternoon, Several ui the Cranbrook men saw Mitchell between 12 and
1 o'clock ami he expressed a willingness
to run as soon as he had permission of
bis backers. Between 1 and 2 o'clock
word came lo the ground thai Mitchell
hud strained a tendon and uiigbt not ba
able to run, aud a 5 o'clock he sent uo
tlce to lhe judges to that effect, aud appeared ou lhe street limping badly and
carrying a caue. J. L- Gates was hurry,
ing around at 2 o'clock lookiug for tbe
cane, but at no time was a physician
called or allowed to examine Mitchell
to ascertain bis condition.
Theu came inquiries to the judges if
they would allow lhe Fernie meu to
draw down tbelr side bets, but no answer
would be given them except that those
matters would be controlled by their
Later in tbe day, the Fernie men who
had had the mosl to say in Ihe morning,
began to serve notice on the Blake holders not to pay over any money, llm not
all the Mitchell backers did this, hy any
means. Men like Albert Mauiz, William
Eschwig, W, W. Tuttle, Tom Rader, 1'.
McMahon, and others, said that Nevin
bad won and fairly, and that they were
willing to give up their money. But
McKercher, Gates. Shaw. McLeod and
others had notices served ou some of ihe
stake holders, and further notice sent
Wednesday by the law firm of Ross St
Alexander of Fernie to none-of which
any attention is being paid.
Tbe judges' decision is as follows:
We decide that Harry Nevin is the
winner of to days race with F.J. Mitchell
by default.
Craubrook, October, 27th 1902.
L- II Hunter,
G. II .Miner,

And The Herald desires to state right
here, tbat no where in Hast Kootenay or
British Columbia could there be found
three men wbo would deal fairer with
any sporting proposition than these
three. They are well known througout
the district fur their integrity "»»*l could
not be Induced to perforin a dishonest
or dirty act for any amount of money.
Most ot the bets were made subject to
the judges' decision, and consequently
are being paid, and tbe stake money of
Si.uoo was turned over for the same reason.
It la most unfortunate thnt the affair
resulted as it did, but throughout It all
ibe people of Cianbrook acted fairly
and as true sports. Taey bet confident
tbey had the best man, aud bet their
money freely, and if they had been defeated they would hare given up their
coin without a murmur. After tbe race
had beeu run the men from Fernie who
were dissatisfied, never made a claim
for any bets, but seemed anxious for
some etcitnc to draw down their nnney.
And yet tbey all knew that Nevin was
the swiftest mau.
wanl ami tbe teferee niiuouiiced lhat it
was to be a clean break away ami lhat
the pivot blow was barret). After shaking   hands,   quick  art ion   followed, as
"PItz" seemed deteitnlned to rush the
tint tie fiom tbe start. Iu fact, there
was mure work in lhat part of a round,
than is often seen In several rounds ol
the average boxing contest. Within a
few seconds "l-'itz" landed a terrific
blow on Lewis' chin, sending him lo the
ropes and lo his kueea, where be remained uulil tbe referee bad counted
nine. From that time ou "Lewis"
work waa punk. He attempted to foul
on tbe bteak aways and three times
went after tbe pivot blow, although
repeatedly warned by the referee. The
thud time the play was ao strong, although "Fill" was always out of tbe
way, that the referee called off tbe contest and gave his decisiou to Fitzgerald
before lime had beeu called on the first
ruuiid There were howls of derision
from tbe audience, although everybody
Jeclared that Tuttle could do nothing
else under the circumstances But the
crowd was sore. They had paid to Bee
a buxlug contest of a few rounds al least
and there were many yells of "fake,
fake," as they left Ihelr seats.
Whether Ibe fight was fixed or not for
tbe first round, the principals got the
blame for it, although Lewis seemed to
come in for most of tbe censure. To
eveu the casual observer It was rank,
and to the men who put up their money
for a boxing entertainment it was rotten
to lhe core. It la such horse plays as that
lhat spoils the success of good boxing
contests by men who are honest enough
to waul to give a crowd a run lor their
Lewis claims that alter he got the
blow on the chin, he weut daffy and

A great cheer followed the close of the
race and the udmirers of Nevin flocked
onto the track and hoisted him ou their
shoulders and carried him iu triumph to
the grand stand.
But a chauge came over their dreams,
Word was brought up from the other
end of the track that it was a false start
No, no, that could not be! Tbe men
had run for blood. Kverybody could
see tbat it was a fair start. That, was a
mistake or a hoax.
But no. Two shots were fired, Harry Bentley. although satisfied lhat the
•tart was fair to both Bides, aaya tbat he
fired bis pistol accidentally!
And then came the war of discontent.
But true to tbelr sporting spirit, although
the race had been run fairly and won
fairly, tbe Craubrook crowd cried, '-All
right. Let her go. We'll run again and
give them another chance. We will
give tbem no chance to kick."
Nevin went to his room under the
grand stand expecting to be called any
moment.   But he Was not.
Mitchell was taken hurriedly to, the
Cranbrook hotel and aetitto his room.
Tbe judges met and, being anxious to
deal fairly with all, held a consultation
The Horse Races.
The horse races were exceptionally
good, in fact there were several events
lhat have not been equaled on the Crau*
brook track for Interest. Owing to G.
H. Miner's horse meeting v.ith an accident some time ago, the harness races
had to lie called off, The different races
and the winners were as follows:-

The boxing contest between Fitzgerald
and Lewis, whether premeditated or
not, was a rank fake, as the decision
was given to Fitzgerald on a foul before
the end of the first round. W. W.
Tuttle was selected as referee, and a
better one could not have been selected,
and when his name was announced the
crowd present broke Into cheers of approval. The hall was not crowded yet
there were quite a number present, and
the seating arrangement was very satisfactory. The prices were $1.50 for general admission, $2 00 for the front rows
and $2.50 for ring seats. It was nearly
9 o'clock when the men took their corners and stripped for the contest,
"Pitz" showed his power In chest and
shoulders but gave evidence ot a lack of
hard training, as there was too much
superfluous flesh. Lewis on the contrary was apparently In fine fettle. When
time was called the men stepped for-
Wllmer-Cranbrook Mall Petition.
The following petition haa been aent
by tbe residents of the Windermere
country to I'oatmaater Oeneral Mullock:
Sir William  Mullock,  I'oslmaaterOen-
eral, Ottawa, Ontario.
Slri-The petition of the undersigned
residents of tbe Windermere District,
of British Columbia, humbly shewelh:-
That several months ago the residents
of said district petitioned your department to establish a mall route from
Wllmer to Cranbrook on the Crow's
Nest Railway.
Tbat said petition it ii feared did not
receive from the department the consideration that tbe merits ana importance of the subject matter therefore
justified, and now renew tbelr request
with tbe earnest hope of a more favorable consideration1
Tbe District bas made marker progress In the development of Its rich
mineral and agricultural resources In
the past few years, but notwithstanding
tbis, Its mall facilities are not as good
as tbey were five years ago tbe
Windermere-Fort Steele mall route
having been discontinued In the mean
The establishment of tbe route asked
for will bring tbe district In closer
touch wltb West and Sooth Kootenay
and tbe extensive development In progress there at tbe present time, and
thus our vast undevoloped mineral resources are within the easy reach of the
Investor and capitalist.
Tbe large Increase In the volume of
postal business transacted In the district
and Its Importance aa a mining and
ranching center justifies the assumption
that It Is entitled to better mill facilities
than at present enjoyed, and It Is believed tbe Postoffl-.e Inspector of tbe
Province will concur In this view.
Your petitionee respectfully submit:
1. That tbe district ls entitled to better facilities thin tbat now furnished.
a, Tbat the residents of the district,
who should be the best judges of their
own Interests are almost unanimous lo
their desire for a weekly service from
Wllmer to Cranbrook In preference to
a bi-weekly service from Windermere
to Golden.
3. Tbat the establishment of this
route means for tbe district almost tbe
difference between prosperity and stagnation In tbe development of Its ranch
log and mining Interests.
4. Tbat the expense of establishing
the route asked for will be less than
the expense of a semi-weekly service
to Golden; a consideration which should
appeal to the well-known economy of
tbe department over which you preside
5. That the fact above stated tbat the
mail service has retrograded, notwithstanding tbe material progress made
In the district served Is not In keeping
with the usual prcgresalve character
of the post oflice department under
your Incumbency.
In conclusion your petitioners bespeak
for the subject matter of tbis request a
talr consideration on the merits.
The people of Cranbrook are loyal to
llielr friends and are ever teatly to give
material evidence of their feelings when
tbe occasion arises. It was such au occasion last Monday night wheu the business element uf Cranbrook gathered
about forty strong lo display their esteem
and friendship for three citizens of
Cranbrook who are leaving to belt**
their conditions iu new fields of labor.
H. Haines, for neatly two years manager
of tbe Canadian Hank of Commere, C
IO Coleman, for a year aud a half agent
for tbe C. P. R , and James Hunter, now
teller of ihe Canadian Bank of Coiiimeice
have been uotilied by the companies by
which ihey are employed tbat tbey have
beeu transferred, and in a few days the
scenes that have known them in tbe past
few years well known them uo more.
Among their friends lu Cranbrook
there was n tinaiiiinous feeling lhat there
should be something done in tbelr honor
and In consequence it was decided to
give ibe banquet. Arrangements were
made fur the event at lhe Cranbiook
hotel, and a more successful function
waa never held in the town. Tbe tables
were arranged in tbe form of half a
square, mid when decorated with shining
sliver, potted plants and attractive
glassware presented a scene that was
pleasing to the artistic eye, ami a credit
lo Mr. T. Rookes. the clerk at thc hotel
wbo had the arrangements in charge.
It was about 10:30 when lhe guests tiled
into the dining room, and Chairman
Heattie and Vice Chairman Gilpin look
their places. Mr, Haines and Mr. Coleman occupied seats ou either side of the
fhnlrnmn. while Mr. Hunter had a seat
to the right of the vice chairman. Tbe
many good things to eat supplied by-
Mr. Ryan, lhe host, were thoroughly
enjoyed by the guests, while tbe different groups indulged in pleasing conversation, jokes and sal.ies of wit.
It wns about 11:30 when Chairman
Beattie Inaugurated lhe toast programme
by proposing the health of the King,
and "God Save the King" was sang with
hearty tones. The next toast was "Our
Guests," which was responded to by
Messrs. Haines, Coleman and Hunter,
who expressed their pleasure over tbe
honor conferred by Ibe gathering, and
their regret over leaving Cranbrook and
the many friends tbey bad here. In the
responses that followed there was
strong current of feeling displayed
when reference was made to ibe departure of tbe three gentlemen, showing
plainly bow strongly tbey had intrenched
themselves in the hearts uf tbe people
of Craubrook,
Tbe toast list was as follows:
The Railroad Interest—Messrs. Jamieson, McKenzie and Cory.
Lumber Iuterests—Messrs. Lund and
Our Sports—Messrs. H. jamieson, A.

The last time he came over hedeposited
over $5,000 worth of dust in the bank.
The nuggets were magnificent in appearance, being Inlirely free from quartz
and perfect beauties. There were quite
a number of strangers at tbe Craubrook

was a sight to see iliem open their eyes
when the nuggets and .lust were produced.

Unry How, the Klko con-table, was in
town Wednesday. Mr. Dow expects 0
be transferred to Wardner within a
short time.
Harry Itentley, the saw mill magnate
of Pernie, was In towu last Sunday,
Harry is also interested in the mill at
ihis place, and says Morrissey Invest*
metits are a good ihlng.
The citizens of Morrissey should unite
in songa of thanksgiving and praise
over r,be fact that the ping pong craze
has not yet Invaded tho camp, and
the llrat one to introduce It will be
looked upon wllh suspicion fur all lime
to come.
"Mooch," the Miner mascot, came
within an ace of tailing nn unexpected
trip to dog heaven last Tuesday evening, as the result of gelling tangled up
under a pile of falling lumber at the
mill. No damage was done, however,
hm '-Mooch" has cut the mill out of liis
calling list.
The woik of clearing ihe townsile is
progressing rapidly, and as a result a
great change has taken {dace iu the appearance of the place. Now that lhe
mill is running steadily the streets are
rapidly being cleared of logs, am) In a
short while It will be hard tor iho old
timers to realize that ll is tne same
Oold weather will soon be here, and
as yet no one haa made a move toward
putting up Bre wood for use this winter.
There will be a great demand for wood
In a ahort time, and some cnergct c 1
chap could make a barrel of money in
this line. There Is any amount of lirst
class wood on the townsite which could
be got for the aaklng, but no one seems
to care about getting rich fast.
H. L, Stephens expects to give a
grand opening ball In his new hotel on
the evening of Tuesday, November 17.
Tbe large dining room, 30 by 1(1 In sl/.:,
will afford ample room for the dancers,
while music will probably be Import-, d
from Pernie, Special efforts will be
made to bring a crowd from both I'ernie and Cranbrook for this occasion,
and it is the Intention of Mr. Stephens
to leave nothing undone lhat will In
any way add to the comfort or enjoyment of his guests, Arrangements aro
now being made for the affair, and the
dance will go down In history as one of
the swell social events of Morrissey,
Joe Duchesne, a Frenchman who ba
been operating a ranch at Jeffrey for
Pinch & Jones, the saw mill men of
Marysvllle, is now in the tolls for shooting several head of cattle belonging to
Prank Dcrnsler, the hotel keeper of
JafTray. The trouble started over Da*
rosier's cattle using Duchesne's ranch
as a promenade. This Duchesne objected to, and he accordingly entered a
complaint wllh Derosler, telling him
to keep the cattle off or he would de
posit several pounds of shot In their
anatomy. This Derosler did not do. so
lhe next time the cattle wandered on
the ranch, the wrathy rancher emptied
the contents of a double barrel shot
gun Into their midst. He shot at close
range and succeeded In wounding three
of tbem In a serious manner. The own.
er of the cattle naturally objected to
having them assay so high In lead, ami
promptly got out a warrant fnr Dn*
cheane's arrest. A preliminary hearing waa helil bfore Silpemlurv Mflgls
trate Armstrong at JafTray last Wednesday, and the man behind Die gun is
now behind the bars at Nelson waiting
trial by the assizes.

printing can be met. Sume people

printing it takes modern type, modern
equipment, modern woik men with
modern ideas. This all costs money,
but it pays because tbe results are appreciated by the people. It is impossible to keep up with the times by crawl
ing in a hole nnd staying there,
