ball came in the evening. They yelled Iheir   beads on    over the horso
      They  urged on  tho men     In
the drilling    contests   hy their    enthusiasm.     They became partisan lit [   j;,

hose reel race, and owing lo the
muddv streets mi.one was dissatisfied
when the mailer was scttlc.1 hy cutting Hie money int.. ami tossing tor
the trophy    Which      Kernie won.      It
was « Rood naturert crowd, a    good
nature.] day, and closed with a con.)
im hired boxing contest  that violated
no statues of tin* province of British
Columbia against    prize fighting.    It
was a meat ilay and Uie Labor   Day
.ommlttee an- lo he congratulated on
Hi.* manner it turned oul with all the
handicaps llial  prevailed.     The parade w.is not what the committee had
wanted or expected,    hut ihe threatening weather proved a detriment.   It
showed, however,    that the laboring
forces were organized iu the district,
ami they were aide to make a    most
excellent    show ing.       The hand     of
hope, under the     guidance nf     Rev,
Hughes,   of   the    Methodist   church,
composed of many    tittle girls    and
ii.'vs, was iui Innovation, and received
much praise.    Lack nf space prevents
the Herald from giving mote of    the
details, but below will ac seen    the

winners in the various contests:

this by tlie supporters of the (pime in !
ibrook, There were but lbreoen-1
irics roi lhc match, namely: l-'erjile,
WyelitTc ami Crnnbrook, ami this necessitated one of lhc teams playing
two games, and it was decided that
the first game should start immcdl-
nloly after Ihe parade ami Hit* third
team should play the winner ul this
game late in the Afternoon, thus giving time for the winners to rest up,
The mimes of lhe tlitre teams were
placed in a bal hy A. McCowan nnd a
toiniivltlee consisting of Messrs. Doyle
.f Fernie, Yates of WyelilTc, and J.
Reed of Cranbiook, proceeded to draw
for Hie bye, with the result that
Craubrook secured it, and Ferula and
WyelilTc were called on lo play the
rst game.
Ii was about one o'clock when Umpire Hates started the game mid Wv-
•lllfe went to bat hut failed to score.
Fernie succeeded in doing bet ier in
their half, three men crossing tlio
plate before the side was retired.
WvcliRe again tailed lo score ift tin
1 second, not withstanding the tact Uiat
the majority of the crowd were rooting for tbem, while Kernie chalked
Up two more to their credit, and although they fulled to connect in the
third they secured two runs in both
the 1th and 5th and one in the Bth,
making a total ol (en (luting tbo
game. In the third WyclilTo secured
their first run but failed to connect
again until th- 8th, when they   .sent
men across the plate and repeated the act iu the Dili, but were
unable to overcome Kernle's lead and
ihe game ended with the score 10-5 in
Ferule's favor, but bad the WyclilTo
pitcher been given the support he
was entitled to the story would have

"Speaking of what amount of gold
came out of Wild Horse creel., I put
it al $15,000,000.
"I had the means of knowing, because I had water rights to soil, and
so had inside Information o! what
was really got out. There was a
government duly Imposed, but It was
evaded iu a thousand different ways.
The official figures are no where near
true, nor lo they approximate the
truth by;many millions of dollars. I
know that men paid duty on probably
a lenth of what they got out of the
dirt. Many never paid a cent. It
was pretty hard for the government
lo keep check ou the output when the
very owners had more than they could
do to prevent wholesale robbery from
Iheir chums.
"As for the future, all I can say is
that 1 agree entirely with Rave flrif-
lith in saying that 'there Is as much
gold In the gulch as ever came out
>f it. Y'ou see around mountains of
untouched gravel. There Is the Nfp-
aml-Tucki property on the other side
f the creek. They have ground
enough to keep the creek busy for the
next forty years. They also have
the control of all the water rights
from Fisher creek to Brewery creek.
Amongst the owners are Bave Griffith and Mr. Oalbraith, of Fort
Steele. I have a fair share of untouched ground, too, hut nothing like
what I had in early days. The Lily
May is a splendid property. Tlie

Ihe men of the present day haven't
Ibe grip and determination of thosu
uieii I knew in Ihe early davs. What
do lliey do? If they haven't the
muscle to get at the gold, then I'm
thinking they haven't the brains eith-
it, to persuade people with more
pluck ami more money that the gold
IS still here for the digging, delving

men id the old times would get the
gold out or else get the money In to

Come down to tbe shack with
me and bave some lunch. Another
lime you must stay with me for a
few days, and I'll lie delighted to
tench you something of Uie old channels of the Wild Horse which have
never l>een even touched."
Mountain air Is a fine appetiser, so
1 wax only too glad In go down with
Uie old gentleman, and thoroughly
enjoyed his hospitality. Some good
day I hope to go hack and learn the
sccrots of n gulch which turned nut

The party left Coleman Momlay
and proceeded to the McLaren lumber
camps at the foot ot the mountain
where the members camped for the
night. An early start up the mountain wns made Tuesday morning and
so strenuous was the work that the
top was not reached until after 2
o'clock in the afternoon. The work
was most arduous and a rope was
worn for safety but to the credit of

Ninety men were working on Uie
structure at llie time. Some were

otlrers were tiikiiifi dowij n hit* ti.i-

rapidly iiearlnn the /.en I tli nf the Immense steel arrb whieh was to span
Ibe river. For «t»l feci frnm the
shore' the massive steel stun*, tore
reared an arch, wilh no supports hut
the piers from tlie shore, wliile the
outward extremity was IMI feet
above the water.
Suddenly those    on   Ihe   northern
shore saw  tin d     of the Im It-arch
bend down n little, and » moment
later the whole enoiinoiis fabric
swayed and shot ont from tbe direction of the shore inlo the middle of
the St. Lawrence.
There were a few marvelous escape*-, but the aren't majority of
those on the .structure went'down
With it and nre still in the water.
Ten bodies have been recovered,
Ten others who were on the bridge
were saved, some badly injured. Oflo
or two were miraculously saved.
(if tlie dead recovered,,-the majority
are supposed to be those of Indians
'from Onughnnwagn, near Montreal,
several of whom were employe.) on

Amongst the dead are Mr. Burke,
resident engineer or the work for thu

san, from Philadelphia: Messrs. Fast
and Meredith, supposed to be from
Ohio, and the following residents in
the vicinity of Un- bridge: Victor

Darhticss prevented the work of recovering the bodies being successfully
prosecuted 'tonight, but it is known
that many will lie found t»» be crushed lo pulp hetween the heavy steel

went to their doom.
It Is claimed here that the loss
must fall upon the Phoenix company,
whieh undertook to complete and deliver in perfect condition the superstructure of tbe bridge. Tho abutments and piers are perfectly intact.

IUne of thnse. is the shortening ol the

said, "giving us by far the shortest

That reciprocal demurrage would
not assist in ameliorating Hi.* scarcity nt freight cars is the opinion of
a railroader from the east.
"It is not freight cars that the
railroads want for hauling power," ho
lie. hired in all interview wilh a Herald reporter last night,
"I have seen a whole siding lull of
freight cars for days waiting for locomotives to haul them. Then up
till recently," he continued, "there
was a great scarcity ul coal wlllcll
put the railroad companies farther
hack than ever. Tie result of this
is that tlie farmer ami Shipper has to
wait, for his cars, hut there Is also
another result. It means that the
engines are overworked ami cou-
seipieutly break down.
"lf some enterprising citizen," said
the railroader, smilingly, "should
start up a locomotive const met ion
works he wnuld not only make a
fortune but bestow an immortal blessing ou Hie community. There is
not a railroad in the whole American
continent hut would give hiui all the
orders he wauled. At the present
lime the hig locomotive building concerns in the States are full up with
orders for the next five years. They
cannot take contracts at any price.'
In speaking of the way the C. P.
It. are handling Iheir system the
railroader remarked that the Canadian road was showing some of the
American corporations what could lie
done in times of distress.
"For one thing," he said, "Ihcy
wilt buy anything in the nature of or
what looks like a locomotive even if
built in tbe year one. Within a
week the most ungainly and obsolete
specimen of mechanical ingenuity can
be turned into a mammoth loco.
It well repays one to pay a visit to
tho Angus stops iu Montreal and see
how the C. P. It. are striving lo
keep ahead. Here tbey turn out 211

Then when the dust had lifted     and
the men saw whut bad occurred,
There    was Johnnie    safe at second
and Flynn a-hugging third.
Then from 5,0(10 throats and more
there rose a lusty yell;
It rumbled through the vallev, it
rattled iu the delli;
It knocked upon the mountain and recoiled upon the flat,
Fin- Casey, mighty Casey, was advancing to the bat.
There was ease iu Casey's manner as
he stepped into his place;
There was pride     in Casey's bearing
and a smile on Casey's face.
Ami when, responding to the cheers,
be lightly doffed his hat,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt
'twas Casey at tbe bat.
Ten thousand eyes wer   on him    as
tie nibbed bis hands  witb dirt.
Five  thousand  tongues applauded   as
be wiped them un bis shirt.
Then     while   the    writhing   pitcher
ground the ball iuto bis hip, ,
Defiance '•■learned in Casey's eye,     a
sneer curled Casey's lip.
And now the   leather covered sphere
came hurling through the air,
And Casey   stood u-watehing it    In
haughty grandeur there,
Close by lhe sturdy batsman the ball
unheeded sped—
"That ain't, my style." said Casey.
"Strike one," the umpire said.
From the benches, black with people,
there went up a muffled roar,
Like the beating of the storm-Waves
on ii stern and distant shore.
"Kill liim!  Kill the umpire!" shouted
someone    on the stand;
And it's likely they'd have killed him
had not Casey raised his hand.
Willi a    smile of   Christian   charity
ureal   Casey's visage shone;
He stilled the rising tumult; be bade
the game go on;
lie signalled to the pitcher, and once
more Ihe spheroid flew;
But  Casey still Ignored it  and     the
umpire said:      "Strike two."
"Fraud," cried the maddened thousands, and echo answered fraud,
But one scornful look from Casey and
the audience was awed.
They saw his face grow stern nnd
cold—they saw his muscles
Ami tbey knew that Casey wouldn't
let that ball go by again.
The sneer is gone    from Casey's Up,
his teeth are clenched In bate;
He pounds with    cruel violence    bis
bat upon the plate.
And now the pitcher holds tbe ball,
and now Im lets it go,
And now Hie air is shattered by   the
force of Casey's blow.
Oil! somewhere in this favored   land
the sun is shining bright,
The band is playing somewhere   and
somewhere hearts are light.
And somewhere men are laughing and
somewhere children shout;
But  there   is no   joy In   Mudville—
mighty Casey has struck out.

every ray of sunlight and sympathy.
We like to see lhe glancing, cheerful
light through the window, of a cold
nighti, or watch them, as evening
deepens, gradually, creeping irom the
parlor to the upper stories of lhe
house near us. We like to watch Hie
little children going in and out of the

lo see the while-robed baby dancing
up iiiul down at the window in its
mother's arms, or the father reading
his newspaper there at. evening, or
any of these cheerful, impromptu
home glimpses, wtilch, though we are

Hill & Co. Possibly in their Last Struggle
TH E stringency In the money  market has affected the financial standing of all
people in business.   The banks of Canada and the United States are curtailing
credits and shortening; loans.   Hill & Co. are no exception to this rule,     liny
must raise money to meet the demands of their bankers,   ihat means that they
Must Raise the Cash
And there is only one way to do it.   That is to sacrifice profits and get below the cost
mark.   To accomplish this we will put on the greatest Sale ever known in the Kootenays,
Saturday, August 31st,
and there will be no let up in cutting prices until the demands of our bankers are
satisfied. We have worked hard to build up our business, but the condition of the money
market and our bank account make this sacrifice necessary to protect our interests.
Watch for our prices in the windows and on our counters. The cash must come, and the
way to get the cash at this stage is to give the people such bargains that they will feel
that they must buy. If this Sale is not satisfactory during the coming week, the knife
will go deeper, as we must raise the cash or lose all. We will not be undersold by anyone
and we Invite comparison.   We have to-day the largest stock of
Ladies' and Men's Furnishings, Boots and
Shoes, and Furniture
In fact, anything that a lady or gentleman can wish for in the line of Wearing Apparel or
House Furnishings. We realize now that we have bought too much on credit, forgetting
that there is a day of reckoning. But our bankers have reminded us, hence our chase for
the almighty dollar.
We quote you a few prices as follows, which will largely govern :—
MEN'S SUITS, reg. $18.00, will sell for    - - - $9.75
" "   $12.50, " $6.50
•'   $10.00, " - $5.50
BOY'S   SUITS,   reg. $8.00, will sell for     - - • $4.25
"    $6.00, ..... $3.35
The prices of Boots and Shoes will be cut in two. Men's Hats also to be sacrificed.
In fact everything in our store will be offered at prices never before quoted in the
Kootenay.   This Sale must appeal to the economical buyer.   Call and be convinced.

We believe we ure ihu only merchants in Craubrook

Cull and criticize our etTiirts.
Indications in .he groat Centre of Fashion at present
favor the idea that there will lie little if any radical
departure from the lines laid down fnr Midsummer lints
in those intended for Lute Kail and Kurly Winter. At
nil events, the changes wrought .luring the months of
.luly uud Aliens, iu Millinery styles must prove uf considerable importance ns regards the future.
As seen by a competent authority, these consist in a
very decided heightening uf tlie crown, entailing new
arrangements nf trimming und a new method uf wearing
the hats in keeping with their higher crowns, and there-
fure quite well adapted tu the coming season.

You Can Depend on Campbell's Blue Serge
You know how it is with most serge
suits. After a few weeks, spots begin to
show, the blue becomes dull and sometimes
turns to purple, seams wear white, the collar
sags, and the shoulders wrinkle.
"Campbell's" Blue Serge Suits
stay blue. Rain won't spot them, sun won't
fade them. The color is fast~a beautiful
shade of dark blue that retains its rich
appearance after a long season's wear.
We ask you to see these suits, examine
them, and remember that they bear the
Campbell label to guarantee not only the
color, but also the wear—the satisfaction of
every garment.
