beautiful home run which brought in
Edwards and added a great deal to the
joy of the grand stand. Hut there is
jno use going into particulars. All
that need he said is that Nelson, in
the last innings, lifted n score of 12
to 0 against them to 19 to 7 and left
the spectators almost as well pleased
is if n victory had been scored by the
local men.    The score by innings was

NO TROUBLE
AT PRESENT
There was a ball game yesterday afternoon and when it was all over i
was discovered that the Northport
team had very badly beaten out the
Nelson nine. The victory of the visitors was due to most timely stich
work, and also to the extremely ragged play of the N cUon field men. The
Nelsou battery did all that wns
expected of it. Early in the game
Kacritt lost a linger and he was re.
placed to take McAstockcr's curves
by Harry Houston, Houston certainly
knows a liltie about the game and
did very fine work tlnougliout the
game. The youthful ptcher, who has
a swift south paw delivery, certainly
knows how to deliver them so as to
bother the batters. Ilis pitching was
one of the features of the game and he
gave very few passes to first base, lt
was the very loose work in the field
that lost Nelson the game. One overthrow brought iu two runs and some
more wild throwing biought two more
in the innings which followed.
Hut   the   whole   thing occurred   in
the   ninth   Innings.    The     bleachers
were lined with a small but intensely
Nelson crowd, the members of   which
entirely lost their  voices in alternately coaching and roasting   the wearers
of thc giey  and red.    lt was a disappointing   proposition   to work up enthusiasm on   a   string   of   goose-eggs
'-ft extended over eight innings.  Hut
the  rooters   were   uot dismayed   unci
they said a   whole   lot   of   uncompli
mentary    things   to   tbe     Northport
pitcher when   be came up to deal   his
sciei tific   curves to the local  men   on
their last   chance.   This was done to
rattle the Bald pitcher   but he showed
how much he was rattled by  pitching
threo good ones that the batter   utterly failed to negotiate.  Iu this connection you must  understand  again that
the score was 12 to  0 against Nelson,
and the tovrn that we are all so proud
of had but one chance   to retrieve the
ignominy of a goose-egg.    In the   na-
tuial order of things,   after   the   first
man struck out   and reduced Nelson's
chances by one thiid,   another   victim
presented   himself   to  the   Northport
pitcher.    The latter  looked   confident
while   the    former     appeared to   he
venting an old standing giurige on the
bat   winch he   lammed  unmercifully
against the plate.    When   the pitcher
unwound his arm the bat went   at   it
and the weakest little infield   pop imaginable resulted.   The   ball beat the
butter to first  by   about  two   weeks.
That looked   serious.    Northport  had
an even dozen rurs and Nelson   had a
clean sheet and two   men   out.    Home
of thu rooters became so  discouraged
tbat they went home.    If   you   are   a
lia.eliall   player you will   understand
the gravity   ot  tbe   situation.    Sonic
rooters remained und thev   rooted   as
rooters should.   It appeared to  be all
over and Nelson was to have the magnificent score  of 000.   Then   Johnny
Campbell, who by the way, is a   baseball player,   went to  bnt.   The  very
first ball given to him he   rapped  out
to the right field and on it he   reuched
second.    The next man up   was   Dudley Blackwood and he came within au
ace of knocking the cover oil' thu ball.
Anyway he brought in  Campbell   nnd
planted himself safely at second.    Edwards made a two bagger also, which
brought in Blackwood and raised   the
enthusiasm   of    tbe    uforementioned
rootorB who went ut It quite   reckless
to tattle thc  Northpoit  pitcher,   who
in no  innings pitched thc game  thnt
the Nelson   man did.    Then the  same
Nelson man, so flatteringly mentioned
in the laBt sentence,   struck   an   attitude with the bat.  As a batter he certainly can   strike���an  attitude.   But
that time ho also struck the ball   and
put out a very pretty grounder.  Harry
Houston wus the next batter.    He had
distinguished    himself     behind    the
plate all   afternoon by   his   thorough
knowledge of the game and as batting
was thoroughly in   order,   the  crowd
veiled  all  kinds   of Instructions at
him.

were there. " The caretaker of thc os-
talbislniient who was present during

THE EVIL STRIKES DO.
The Australian gentleman,
Cock, an interview with whom
published in yesterday's Miner,
his finger on the >ore spot of Hiifsli
Columbia mining. It needed not a
magician to do this, as the trouble
lies well on the surface. The prevalence of strikes is causing the mischief. "The frequency of strikes in
British Columbia, and the uncertainty
of the industrial conditions, were
scaring capital away from what
would otherwise be great and paying
investments." Complaint has beeu
made of the raining laws, and not
without good ground. It is poor encouragement to the industry to mani
fest a disposition on the put of the
Government to make it the chief
source of Provincial revenue. It has
to bear ils fair share of indirect taxation, but to impose in addition the
burden of tt large direct tax is a poor
way to entice capital.
Vexatous und detrimental   as   those

RUSSIA TOO   ACTIVE.
Ministers at Pekin Will Determine
the Eute of Manchuria.
WasbingtoD, Julv 18���It is the desire
of some of the great powers that the
disposition of Manchuria should go be-
fore the ministers at Pekin and be
finally determined by a joint agreement among the powers. Although
nu definite step has been taken in that
direction, it is being discussed by
foreign representatives stationed here,
who fully expect thut tbe plan will
be' adopted. Russia, it is believed,
Mill be reluctant to agree toil. Attention has been directed to the latter by reports that Russia bus resuui-
,,l direct negotiations with China
concerning Manchuria and also by
yesterday's cablegram stating that a
Russian proclamation was about to be
issued proclaiming New Chwang as a
Russian port. As to this report
thai Russia will proclaim New Chwang
to be a Russian port, it is pointed
out in diplomatic quarters that New
Chwang is a treaty port and as such
open to the commerce of the world,
under the existing tariff: regulations
with China. These rights of trade
could nol be diverted, in the opinion
of diplomatic officials, by a Russian
proclamation unless the powers had
previously given assent. Thus far,
however, there haB been no request
from Russia or China for any change
in the status of New Chwang as one
of the treaty ports.
Mi, Rockhill, U. S. special commissioner at Pekin, has been instructed
to give the assent of the United States
to the discussion of the proposition
to increase the Chinese custom duties
in order to provide means for the payment of the international indemnity.
Our government is Btill unopposed to
this project ana" the instruction is
sent only in defer, nee to the universal
wish for a speedy conclusion of the negotiations at Pekin.
In a spirit which aroused the keenest admiration of the state department, the Japanese government has
met the ditliculty glowing out of the
preference of her request for an increase of ber Indemnity from China,
by withdrawing that request. Japan
asked originally for 8.8,000,000. Tbis
figure was more moderate than any ot
thu powers which played any prominent part in the Chinese campaign
and represented the barest expense of
the undertaking. It was fixed upon
the idea that payment was to be made
in cash by China. It is safe to assume that the United States government will do what it can to secure
compensation for Japan in some other
way In the future.
C. E. IN SESSION.
San   Francisco, July   18.���The
last
Epworth League special train arrived
tonight and when the fifth international convention opened 30,000 delegates were in attendance, 18,000 of
these coming from points east of the
Rockies. Since last Monday morning
the Southern Pacific has handled via
Ugden, 35 special trains in addition to
the regular trallic, a largo majority
of them arriving last nixht and today, many being scheduled but 30
niiutues apart. The record mado is
remarket le in view of the fact that
not the slightest accident occurred to
this procession of trains all the way
from Ogden.1, The excursionists all
oxpress themselves much pleased with
the transcontinental journey. The
arrangements made by the Epworth
League loeal committees and the railroads for carrying of passengers and
baggage have worked perfectly and
there has been but little confusion.
Among today's notable arrivals
wcru Bishop Isaac VV. Joyce, president
of the league; Rov. Dr. Thiekield of
Cincinnati, geneial secretary of the
Fieedmcn's Aid and Suuthcrn Educational Society ; (loveruor A. T, Illiss,
of Michigan, llisliop II. W. Warren of
Denver and Hlshop Earl Cianston of
Portland, Ore.
tbe royal princess has been watched
with keen interest for several years.
When Lord Rosebery arrived from the
continent last Saturday he went almost direct lo see the king. There has
been much speculation as tu the cause
of this visit, but it is now   explained.
A London paper says:
"The report that announcement
will soon be made of the betrothal
has caused no surprise in England.
where it is generally believed the
wido1" of Queen Victoria's youngest son aud the former premier would
have been married several years ago
but for the opposition of the queen
to second marriages. They have been
loverH for years, and tlnee monthB
ago it was reported they had been
secretly mairied. The ducbeag, who is
a daughter of the German house of
Waldecn I'yrmont, has been a widow
since 1881, her husband dying two
yeaTs after their mairiage. Her life
since then has been devoted to her
children, Piincess Alice and the present Duke of Albany, who is now 17.
Lord Rosebery has teen a widower
since 18110. He is 54, fourteen years
the senior of the duchess."
The earl's friends scoff at the stories
of the engagement.
