The Shamrock II Successful in Second Trial Spin—Other London
Notes of this Morning,
London, May 6.—Commenting
editorially upon the "exceptional
circumstances of President MeKi.i-
ley's tour and ita party objecte,"
the Times refers to "his use of language at New Orleans, which, in a
liberal sense, might be adopted
by the Cobden club," and adds: "If
by seven weeks of unremitting toil
he can obtain any acceptance for
those principles among the American people, he will be able to look
back upon them as the best spent
weeks of his political life."
The Shamrock II had her second
spin this morning. A fresh, squally northeost wind promised just
the conditions Capt. Sycamore desired, to supplement Saturday's
light breeze trial. The challenger
set a club topsail and the Shamrock I set a much larger clab topsail. They held the wind deed ait
down the water, the challenger
went out under mainsal and the
topsail only. The Shamrock I set
a jib. At the start the challenger
ran out ahead bat the Shamrock I
catching a better breeze soon began
to overhaul lieiv The challenger
set a jib and staysail, but though
the breeze was light and: the water
smooth, the Shamrock I held close
astern, losiug nothing from Nettly
Calsho. There they hauled into
the wind and reached along in a
freshe- breeze, tbe challenger leading by half a minute passing- the

Duke and Duchess in Melbourne This Morning—
A Good Welcome.
Melbourne, May 6,   -The  Duke
and Duchess of Cornwall and York
landed from the steamer Opliir at'
2 o'clock this afternoon,
The duke and duchess were re- j
ceived at the pier head by I.ord
Hopetoun, governor-general, and
the state and federal ministers.
The party passed down the quarter of a mile of carpeted pier, entered carriages and proceeded a
distance of seven miles through
brilliantly decorated streets bordered with almost continuous
stands filled to their utmost capacity. The entire route was lined
with demonstrative crowds amid
elaborate decorations. Opposite
the town hall the procession passed
beneath the Queen's arch canopied
with the royal colors aud sheltering a golden statue of Queen Victoria. Twelve thousand troops
were in line. There were 80,000
visitois in Melbourne. The drive
terminated at the government
house.

The firat drowning caie ol tbe season
occurred at Trail yesterday when youug
Pollock tbe eeven-year-eld ion of an
Italian working at tbe aiuelter met his
fate in tbe Trail creek.
It is supposed that the boy waa playing about tbe creek up near tbe brewry
about 8 o' Jui k yesterday morning and
accidentally fell in. At this season ol
the yeur tbe waters ol the creek are un-
uiually high and turbid besides being
icy cold and the lad probably never had a
chance for his life ouce he got in the
creek,
No one saw tbe accident take place
but a report got about that a boy had
been drowned and a search
inBtituted. They eventually came upon
the body away down the creek near the
long bridge. When brought out it was
discovered that the face and bead were
badly bruised end it is possible tbat the
boy wan fatally hurt in falling into the
creek. When discovered tbe body had
been io the creek some two hours and
had received some pretty rough hrndling
during that time. It ia unlikely tbat an
inquest will he considered necessury,

THE EVENING WORLD, ROSSLAND, B. C, MAY, 6, iyoi

THE ORE OUTPUT.
While the corrected figures for
last week's ore shipments will not
be available until about Thursday
next it may safely be assumed that
the week's total will exceed 10,500
tons. The figures given on Saturday in these columns slipwed 9888
ions up to 3 p. in., ami did not include any shipments over the
Great Northern for the day. Eater
on a heavy shipment went down to
Northport, and of course must be
included in the total for the week,
so that 10,500 tons is probably well
within the mark. The matter is
an important one, particularly at
the opening of the summer season's
work and at a time when mining
circles are depressed over the many
rumors concerning the War Eagle
and Centre Star mines.
Columns of newspaper matter
have been printed about the particular period in the camp's history when the ore shipments would
touch the 10,000 ton mark and
that mark has now been reached
and passed.
It must however be clearly understood that the event has taken
place under distinctly adverse shipping facilities. The fifth furnace
at Northport is not yet blown iu
and there is still a large accumulation of ore at this point to catch iip
with. The shipments to Trail are
restricted for reasons known to
every dweller in the camp and particularly so at the moment by reason of the pending smelter deal.
Under such circumstances it is a
matter of great congratulation that
the output of ore from the camp
has at last reached the respectable
weekly total quoted. Tbe WORLD
expects to see the ro.ooo mark
passed many times during the
coming summer.
OPPORTUNITIES.
. 1} is pleasant to learn that out of
the tumble in mining stocks one
man at least has come out on top
According the Nelson Miner, P.
Choate, commercial editor of the
Toronto Mail and Express, has
managed to get out of all his western deals some $300,1100 ahead and
has gone off on a European tour.
There is a great deal of local
trading in stocks at the present
time and it is a wonder there is
not more considering ihe chances.
It is a difficult matter lo make
money—at all events with limited
capital -when prices are away up
and everything is booming, but
when all shares are depressed as
they are just now and when prices
are down, the man with nerve,
sound judgment and a linn belief
in the immediate future of the
Kootenays will find plenty of
chances to make many a good
turnover. This summer should
witness good business all through
these parts and particularly in
Rossland. Prices are being quoted
now that probably will not be
reached again for many a long
day.
SHAMROCK'S   CHANCES.
The cable dispatches state lhat
the trial spin of Shamrock II,which
came off on Saturday, show the
new boat to be a wonder ancl a
long way ahead of Shamrock I.
The trial races are to take place
this week and then the challenger
will start on her trip across. Sir
Thomas Eipton is making another
plucky attempt to wrest the America's cup and every true sportsman
will wish him good luck and no
mishaps. The British boat is always greatly handicapped; by the
conditions under which the race is
sailed but the Americans have so
far easily shown themselves in the
front both in designing and handling their defender.
It is difficult to know which to
admire the most, the clever ingenuity and carefulness in detail displayed by tla- Americans in preparing their boat for the contest as
well as the smart way the defender
is always handled or the dogged
pertinacity with which the British
renew an apparently hopeless contest year after year.
This time at all events no effort
has been left unturned iu designing and turning out a British racer
which will meet all the requirements
of the contest and the cable remarks on the 'American smartness" with which the boat was
haudled on Saturdav.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The chief of the fire brigade
complains that when a fire occurs
people get rattled and start moving
furniture and doing everything
except turning in the alarm. As
so much depends upon the brigade
getting at the fire with the utmost
promptness and before the blaze
has started flaming up it, is imperative that sending in the alarm
should be the first thing done when
a fire occurs. Nothing should
stand in the way of this.
The Evening World is the
name of a new daily paper published in Rossland by the organized
labor interests of that city. It is
the first labor daily to make its appearance iii Canada. -Sandon Paystreak.
Nelson made a strong effort
through its member to obtain a sitting of the full court there. It
was not successful but the determination behind the effort should be
encouraged. The big interior interests of this province should obtain a far greater recognition than
they do at present in the legislature.
It is not fair to judge the morning Miner by its appearance yesterday morning. They are house-
cleaning and swapping chiefs on
the Miner and are suffering accordingly. But shade of John R.
Reavis that the record shipments
should have been so passed over !
Even housecleaning won't clear
that up. If John R. had been in
possession the front page and all
the other pages would have called
so loudly that they could have been
heard from Victoria to Halifax and
tbe editorial would have megaphoned as well. Now, as it was'
the editorial on Sunday, while perfect in its way, was not tbe kind of
article applicable under the circumstances.
The Centre Star Mining company, limited, through ils president, Ceorge Gooderham, has issued the lollowing notice to the
shareholders datetl at Toronto 30th
April: "The manager having reported that the ore so far exposed
since the first of October last has
been of a grade too low to pay under existing conditions. The directors deem it prudent to suspend
the payment of dividends iinlil the
lower levels now being run have
reached the richer portions of the
ore body mid until satisfactory arrangements can be made to handle
the lower grade ores at a profit."
It will be noted that the closing
part of the circular evidently refers
to the Trail smelter deal which the
president described recently as
"still pending." Tbe probability
is that the smelter deal figures ex-
tensivelv in the latest move.
Subscribers who do not receive their
paper regularly will please report the
fact 10 the Evening Wori.ii, Miners'
Union hall.

A School Boy's Letter.
The following letter was received by a
Rosshtnd man from his little boy at
school in England, and la distinctly
funny:* "My dear Pa,—i wiighttotell
vou I am retched and my chilblains ia
norse again, i have not made uny progress and.do not think i shall i am very
sorry to be so much expense but i do not
think this schull is very good, one ol
the boys has taken Ihe ciown of my new-
hat for a target he haa now borrowed
my watch tomake'a water wheel but it
won't act. Me und him tried to put the
works back but we tliink„aoino of the
wheals is missing as they wont tl'. i
dont think the food ia rooI here but
thould uot mind if i was stronger, the
peace ol meat i send you is off the beef
we had on Sunday but on other days it is
more stringay there are black beadles in
the kitchen and sometimes tht y cook
them in tbe dinner which cant be hole-
some 1 hope jou aud Ma are well and do
not mind my bein-i; ao uncomfortable because do not think i shall last long,
please send me aotne money as i owe 8
pence, if you cannot spare it i can
borrow it front a boy who is leaving going to leave at hall term and then he
wont ask for it back, but perhaps you
would not like me to be tinier an obligation, i did not mention it or i daresay
they would have put it down in the bill—
Your loving but rrlcbed son."

Referring to the Chittenden biblical
story which appeared last week Mr.
Gait says tbat what pained him most
deeply in conned ion with the matter
was the length of time it took Mr Deacon to look up a bible reference he
should have known in his sleep. Mr.
Gait expressed Ihe h^pe this morning
tbat both Mr. Deacon snd his Senior
would attend the Methodist conference
in session at Nelson this week. He
thinks the gentlemen need something

difficult to kniw wha' to believe is possible
but so far as the Centre Star and War
Eagle—those "Heavenly Twins"—are
concerned there is a general belief that
a deal of some sort is in progress, but
whether this meads a consolidation of
some sort in the East or a transfer of
the Gooderham interest to somr English
or American syndicate or what the move,
if any, really is it seems impossible lo
ascertain. Judgiug from the latest news
from the East. Thery are no wiser in
Toronto or Montreal than we are in
Rossland on the matter.
In the meantime the ore shipments
arejproceeding as usual this week and
while some 50 surface men were let out
