CONCILIATION BOARD
No Settlement Arrived at This Week
In Vancouver
James Gray and T. C. Brooke, the
local members of the conciliation board
sitting on the cases of James Hardman
and William Reid, arrived home from
Vancouver on Friday.
No definite settlement of the cases in
hand has been arrived at, and it is quite
impossible to say at the present time
when work will be resumed.
It would appear from what information can be gotten up to the time of
going to press that the members of the
conciliation board did not consider that
such cases as those in hand could be
satisfactorily dealt with under the
Lemieux Act.
Matters virtually stand where they
were before and the company and the
miners will evidently have to settle
their disagreements between themselves.
It seems to be the general public
opinion that if the company agreed to
abide by the decision of the board, as
did the miners, an amicable settlement
would have been arrived at.
New negotiations are expected to be
started shortly.
EVERYBODY WAS HERE
VICTORIA DAY A BIG SUCCESS
The Coal Metropolis Puts Up a Two Days' Program of Sports
That Would Do Justice to Many Cities���A Monster
Crowd Was in Attendance
Maointyre  After Fees
Kamloops Standard: A special despatch to the Standard from New Westminster says that A. D. Macintyre of
Kamloops has entered action against
Shorty Dunn and Ernest Colquhoun,
present address, penitentiary at New
Westminster, where they have been
residing since the latter part of 1908
ewing to the circumstances over which
they had no control, they having got
mixed up with Bill Miner, a C. P. R.
train robber and the law.
It is stated that Mr. Macintyre's suit
is for legal expenses rendered the men
when he acted for the defence at their
trial.   The amount claimed is #90.
It is thought that possibly Bill Miner
might have been included in the suit,
but his present whereabouts is unknown and it is not believed substitution of service in his case would be considered by the courts.
Ooal Company vs. Hardman
The case of the Nicola Valley Coal &
Coke company vs. James Hardman, in
which the company endeavored to have
Mr. Hardman vacate the house he is
living in at Middlesboro, has been decided at Greenwood. Mr. Hardman
cannot be turned out of the house
without entirely new proceedings being
started, and all costs of the case must
be paid by the landlord.
Stiffs for Canada
General Booth, head of the Salvation
Army, has cabled approving the purchase from the Canadian Pacific railway
of 10,000 acres of irrigated land south
of Calgary, on which he will settle a
party from the slums of London this
year. He will visit the land in September.
Merritt's second annual celebration of
Victoria day was a decided success.
The weather man was kind, good prizes
were put up for all events, the competition was keen in both the athletic
and horse racing programs, and the
public generally were in a happy state
of mind and enjoyed the two days of
sport immensely.
The various committees and officials
did their utmost to give the visitors a
hi arty welcome and provide for their
entertainment. The expressions of
outside opinion shows that they succeeded admirably.
The first day was devoted to the
athletic events, which were all keenly
contested. In the evening of the 24th.
a dance was held in the pavilion, excellent music being furnished by the
Merritt orchestra, under the direction
of Professor Simmons.
Horse racing occupied the second day
and some fine races were witnessed by
the spectators. The meet turned out
to be a much greater success than was
anticipated for a town the size of
Merritt.
Altogether, the two days of sport
were two glorious days for Merritt.
The largest crowd ever gathered together at any celebration in Nicol valley was that which partook of Merritt's
hospitality on the 24th and 25th. The
new coal metropolis has nothing to be
ashamed of in connection with the Victoria day sports.
Below will be found a list of the prize
winners in both the athletic and horse
racing programs:

THE ROYALS WIN
New Westminster Lacrosse Champions
Hold Minto Cup
New Westminster retains the Minto
cup.
Outplayed in every department of
the game and run off their legs by the
fast New Westminster field, the Regina
Capitals fell an easy prey to the champions of world Monday afternoon
when they were beaten for the second
time at Queen's park, New Westminster, by an overwhelming score of twelve
goals to two. In the first match New
Westminster v/on by a score of six to
four. Monday the beating administered
to the challengers was more decisive,
while in the series the champions trebled
the score on the all-star aggregation
of stick wielders from east of the
Rockies. This is the first team to come
west in quest of the Minto cup, which
New Westminster won last year from
the Montreal Shamrocks and it is a
foregone conclusion that any team
that aspires to the world's lacrosse championship who come out of
the east will also return empty handed
���for some time to come at least. Regina Caps are not the first to come
west for matches with the champions.
Like many other star teams they came,
they saw, but failed to conquer. And
it's going to be the same with a lot
more teams before the cup leaves the
Fraser river borough.
Regina never had so much as a
look in.
Pacific Coast Marathon
Will Chandler, the crack Vancouver
Athletic Club runner, confirmed his
title to the Marathon championship of
the Pacific coast by an easy victory at
Recreation Park Monday afternoon.
Art Burn, who was considered his most
formidable opponent, dropped out exhausted in the nineteenth mile, Rowan,
of Nanaimo, who ran well throughout,
finishing in a good second place. Of
the nine who started only four finished,
the order being Chandler, Rowan, Ras-
mussen and James Bancroft.
Look over your stock of stationery,
then place your order with the Herald.
Damage By Bush Fires in Interior
Hon. R. G. Tatlow, minister of
finance and agriculture, l-etumed to
Victoria this week from attendance at
the meeting of the board of horticulture at Vernon. While there he investigated the damage done by the recent heavy bush fire in the Spallumcheen and Salmon Arm country. He
found that great damage had been
done to farms and mills in the neighborhood of Enderby and Mara, while
reports came that in the Silver Creek
district the fire was smouldering. The
fire was more serious than many people
imagine and a great deal of distress
followed in its wake.
I
Hedley Camp Mineral
Frank Bailey, M. E., returned from
the Similkameen Friday last. He says
all the mining properties being developed in Camp Hedley are turning
out good ore in paying quantities. Mr.
Bailey has let a contract for a 100 foot
tunnel on the Crown Point mine and expects to be one of the first to ship out
high grade ore. The V. V. & E. railway are constructing their road in this
vicinity. Whilst in Hedley Mr. Bailey
sent 100 pounds of ore to the A. Y. P.
mineral exhibit from his properties.
Today he went up the Coldwater examining coal properties for eastern
capitalists.

where, to our way of thinking, he
will last just as long as snowball

Opener is no more. Bob has made

has acted fearlessly in his capacity
as a newspaper man, and he has
incurred very often the displeasure
of Mrs. Grundy and the mock-
modest puritans of the wheat belt,
but he will be missed. On yes, he
will be missed. When crooked
men around Calgary needed a

BREWERY
The big tunnel on the C. P. R.
line near Field was successfully
finished last week. The new borings have cost the sum of $1,500,-
000 and will be handed over to the
operating department of the railway in time for the inauguration
for the double service on June 6.
The grade by means of this tunnel
is reduced from 45 per cent to 22
per cent.
A dispatch from St. Petersburg
says: Reports from abroad of negotiations for an Austro-Japanese
military understanding, providing
for an attack by Japan in case of an
European conflict, have been seized
upon with avidity by Russian sensationalists. Several newspapers
publish long discussions upon the
probability of a rear attack. The
Russian foreign office does not attach the slightest importance to
these reports, and says that the
Russo-Japanese relations are on the
best possible footing.
Miners and prospectors are reminded that they have to take out
their licenses on  the  last  of this
month at the latest.    They should
remember that in the event of their
neglecting to do so, their  holdings
become government property, and
are open to be staked by  any man
coming   along,   who   has   a   free
miner's     certificate.      Companies
who own mining property are in
the  same category-    If they have
not secured their license for the
year their ground  may  be  staked
just the same  as   any  uudevoped
ground.
Merely a Dream
I dreamed I went to Paradise, far
from this vale so dark, and having
reached that happy land, I sought the
haseball park; they charged me nothing
at the gate, but led me blithely in, and
murmured, as I took my seat: "Tho
home team's sure to win." A winged
fan beside me sat, within the grandstand's shade, consuming pearly peanuts and ambrosial lemonade; I asked
him why the shining hosts all wore such
happy grins; "In heaven here," the
fan replied, "the home team always
wins." The game was nicely under
way when I fell out of bed, and busted
nearly all my slats, and fairly spoiled
my head; forgetting I was back on
earth, I cried: "How was the game?"
The surgeon said: "They shut us out

The big success of the Victoria

gratifying to the people of Merritt.
It shows what a number of progressive people can do in any community when they set about it in
the proper manner and with the
spirit of patriotism predominating.
This was Merritt's second celebration, and, while there was a little
misunderstanding in connection
with one or two of the horseracing
