Honors were even ln Ihe game played
here last Saturday between the football
elevens of Sloe.*... City and Silverton.
The Slocan Cily 1-jyp are good players
and although the local forwards missed
several goodchan.ces to score the win-
nine same, they tetd well satisfied ,n
having held the lively visitors down to
The game was played under a biasing
sun, the intense heat sendiug that tired
feeling through the men, although at
times the play was fast enough to suit
even the sped tors.
At 2 o'clock the ball was kicked off by
Slocan Citv, their forwatda trying to
rush a goal at once. This ambition was
badly spoiled by the half-backs, who
forced a scrimmage, from which Mc-
Nau.ht was hauled for repairs O'Brien
took his place. Slocan made other down
field rushes wiih a better result, Brett
scoring neatly by a long shot. Tbe first
part of thia halt was all Slocan City. Now
the locals woke up and did a little rush
work pf their own, keeping the Slocan
defence working for the rest of the half.
Here tke home forwards showed tlie result of their practise in tyrneJy pacing,
bnt nltbou-h shooting repeatedly, tbey
fai ed to connect.
The second half was fairly similar to
the first, tl.e single goal however going
to the red and white. The vistors did
s> me nice combination work, puztline
lhe half ''arks, but the rombinaiions in-
vurialtly broke up when Malloy reached
for the ball. At times in this half, the
play I el**, een Silverton's wiggg apd Ihe
visitors' defence approached roughness.
Tbe mimes of the referee did not always accord with tl.e views of the locals
and considerable chewing of the metaphorical rag was indulged in.
However, ail's well that doesn't end
in defeat, and the grimy, preepiring
players cheered _ach._tber heartily after
time was called, each team wondering
bow the other bad managed to gain a
aland off.
A stood game was pulled off in New
Denver last Satnrdav between the Can-
yoniieo nf Sandon and the Browniea of
tl.e Windy City. The same was well
played, resulting in a win for the home
team with a score of two goals to one
Nn one was hurt except those who put
up their wad on Sandon.
The home team take a lay-off to-day.
New Denver wanted a same on their
(-rounds hut would not aeree to a return
match. This ope-tided scheme fonnd no
supporters here. The locals will play
home and home games, or will meet the
New Deuverites on a neutral field to
play off tbe present tie.
The Siocan City field will be ready by
July 1st. Silverton will meet the home
team there, shortly after that date,

The English Monopoly Ie Broken—The
Keolprocy Between the Island ana
United States Desired—Industries Are
Improving—Severe Ke_rthqu„_e.
Kingston, Jamaica, June 16.—The end
of the terrible fruit war and the coll-pse
of the English scheme for monopolizing
the Jamaican fruit trade leaves jthe Boston Fruit Company masters of tiie situa*.
This development has cauaed widespread
gratification. It ls generally regarded as
the first fruiU of tliat reciprocity, between.
Jamaica and the United States which is
so much desired. It is felt, that the presence of the fruit company will draw into
the island other American enterprises as
soon as treaty relations render assured a
permanent market for Jamaican products
in the United;States. -■•«   >
Already there is a marked improvcnaait
in the industrial condition of the island.
Only the conclusion of the reciprocity
tieaty is now awuitcd. Should the negotiations by any possibility fail, the blow
to the hopes of Jamaica would be a severe
one. I
.Mitch care lias been exercised in the selection of the delegates who are to proceed
to Washington to confer with the British
diplomatic authorities there with a view
to arranging the terms -of a reciprocity
treaty. If they are not successful in clearing the way for a treaty, it will certainly
not be their fault. The)* represent - not

a remarkable thing happened. From 1 a.

bombarded with shocks, some lasting
about two minutes, with an occasional exceptionally heavy one. Altogether during
tbe five hours there were 45 shocks.
During the night there were others and

Wallace, Idaho, June 19.-**T_e cavalry
troops guarding .the district will aeon be
more than doubled by'the'kdditlon of'BOoj
soldiers from the Sixth regiment, now stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. It is ex-
■M'cted that they will aoon start for the
Couer d'Alenes. They will relieve Oro-
panies A and F of the Twenty-fourth, the
colored infantry now stationed at Warduer
guarding the prison. It is probable that
these two companies will go to the Philippines. As no orders have been received
nh*ecting lieutenant Lyon's company of
colored infantrymen, they will probably
remain up Canyon creek, guarding the
'■ mining properties there. That will give
about 380 cavalrymen and 65 foot soldiers
ou duty here and that force will be probably the permanent one which will remain

Aid Ajarrlcan Exports.
Berlin, June, 19.—The canal bill engrossed attention last week, and the papers had miicA*- to say pro and con, according to party standpoints. The ultimate fate of the, bill concerns America, as
the construction of a network of canals
joining the three largest ri+erg in .'riu—u
--'Elbe, Rhine and the Weser—atld the fare-stern provinces, those bordering on the
(■errnan ocean*,' will cheapen and facilitate
the freights of American exports, notably
cereals, meats, cotton and other bulky
goods. Another point interesting to America is the factthtl Istie Prussian agrarians
and those pittite aONtati-g with them,
the conservatives, reichspartci and a portion of the center', have made the bill a
test of strength between them and the emperor, though with the entire Prussian
cabinet pledged for the canal.

Ia tbe wage dispute between tbe
mine owner and miners, which has
brought on thc present strike and for
the thru* being closed down post of
our big/juii^'tho press and public
appear to be, losing sight of the truo
issue of the dispute, .. Some.papers are
bowling at tbe enforcement of the
eight hour law, while other* say-that
the miner*, are asking the same wage
lor the abort as tor this longer t^ip.
Neither, as we understand it, is tktt
titration at issue. Tbe eight boar law
is not the issue, for neither side bas
anything to do with that, it being a
law, simply * beipg enforced by the
proper officer*. Tbe question at issue
it limply tbis: The mine owners are
offering the miners a wage of $3 00
for a day's shift in place of the former
wage of $3.50, a clear cut of fifty cents
{Mr day in the mens' wages, aud
thieatening to import men from th'
east if thuir offer is refused. Tbe men
reply tbat tbey have fouud it bard
ei.ough, in this country of high pricts.
to live on $3.50 per day; that tbey
cannot work for any less.
It is not a question of hours but a
question of what can a man liv
respectably on in thc Slocan. If a
miner only worked one hour, he would,
if ho intended to live, bave to ask
enough to live on and as the government hai fixed tho hours he mav work,
he is simply asking a day's pay in this
wage* dispute now going on.

The question tbat arise* in every
disinterested mind isi What is required
of the miner lo earn his wage) In the
first place, bc must, if lie has a family,
leave it, and go to |ire on a steep
side-hill, often ne-*.*- the line ot eves-,
luting snow. . Jfor his wage, the
Slocan miner*. is required to toil, in
nost places, hundreds of feet under
ground in wet pieces, bad air and
among poisonous gases, caused by the
use of giaut powder. These gases are,
in most of our mines, allowed to settle
or "die" in the mine, owing to bad
ventilation. He daily take* chance*
of being mained for life or killed outright by caring walls or falling roof
and may be hurled into eternity at
any moment by a premature explosion
At nearly all our mines, hj* living
•ccomroodations are such a* any com
munity, having any regard for it*
health, wonld not tolerate for a moment
A badly lighten poorly ventilated and
evil smelling bunk house is where he
must live and sleep when off duty.
No wonder so many miner* are
brong-t down from our mines, suffering fiom pneumonia, or cripple.!} with
rbumatism, caused by .their forced
unhealthy mode of living; These are
amongst tbe many discomforts he must
endure if be wishes to make a living
by mining in the Slotan.
While discussing tho conditions of
the bunk bouses, around most of. our
mines, there being, of cours.i, some
exception*, we think that some system
for' tbe enforcement of reasonable
sanitary measures around our mines
should, in tbe cans. of decency ahd
common humanity, be undertaken* -l.y
onr government <
When th. government cqt, the
number of hour* that tha mine owner*
could work their miner* underground,
bow quickly tbe min* owner* concluded lo reduce the mens wag**!
When lead doubled in value and
silver moved op several points, tbns
largely increasing tbe mine owners
profits, we do not reroeipber of tbe
mine owner* tumbling oyer eanb other
in an attempt to increase tbe wag** ol
their employees*
The fool killer bu not harvested all
his crop. We meet men occassional ly
who light tb* f re with coal pil, who
monkey around tb* ligbtining end of
