If it  wasn't errorless, it was certainly a  rooters'game. As'will be seen by the  score, a few of each side managed to  make the rounds -of the I bases.  This was not due to skill in batting,  but because the batteries and fielders  were less expert than the wielders of  the ash. Oue more exhibition like  Sunday and every baseball enthusiast  will become afflicted with the Lord's  Day Alliance malady in its most virulent form  No view is just the same on both  sides of the fence.  THE CARMI.  R.T. Longly, superintendent of the  Carmi, returned Saturday from Spokane, where he had been to consult  with E- H. Thruston. the principal  owner of the property. Mr. Longly  stated that Mr. Thruston had purchased the Spokone people's interest  iri the mine, but could not give any  information as to the policy in regard  ���o development in the future. It must  be confessed that this news will prove  disappointing to the people of the West  Fork, and it would be useless to disguise the fact that the people hoped  some person would secure control, less  erratic in his methods of developing- a  mine. The property appears to be all  right, but development has been of  an intermittent character.  Wfi}il44As><*\\ Ladies  Ready-to-Wear Hats   all at  millinery Special Prices.

U.S. soldiers who served in Cuba  during the Spanish war know what this  disease is, and that ordinary remedies  have little more effect than so much  water Cuban diarrhoea is almost as  severe and dangerous as a mild attack of cholera. There is one remedy,  however, that can always be depended  upon, as will be seen from the following certificate from Mrs. Minnie Jacobs  of Houstan, Texas: " I hereby certify  that Chamberlain's Colic,.Cholera and  Diarrhoea remedy cured my husband  of a severe attack ot Cuban diarrhoea,  which he brought home from Cuba.  We had several doctors but they did  him'no jrood. One bottle of this remedy  cured him, as our neighbors will testify. I thank God for so valuable a  medicine."   For sale by all druggists.  The Chicago syndicate who, as already reported, have purchased the  Preston, are sparing neither trouble  nor expense in the development of  their property. By appointment a  Times reporter met Mr. Bailey, the  local representative* of the syndicate  on the ground yesterday morning and  under his guidance and accompanied,  by the supervising engineer, W. H.  Jeffery, M. E-, was taken to each of  the leads on the property, each ot  which is being worked. There  are three, and judging from result-* so  far attained with every prospect of  ultimate success. The veins are numbered 1, 2 and 3, and the discovery is  on No. 1. The new owners have  erected a gallows frame at the head of  the workings on this lead' which is a  remarkably fine showing and has given  assays as high as $808 per ton. At the  point where the incline shaft on the  vein is now the lead is lying pretty  -flat. Judging from the looks of the  footwall, which is crushed and broken  as though from some movement of the  rock, it is expected that the vein will  whemiollowed, prove to have a much  steeper dip than appears, .now. It is  Mr. Jeffery's intention"to sink on the  vein and when found in place to drift  to the face of the hill and use the incline now about to be started on for  ventilation purposes. '   '  Lead No. 3 is, in Mr. Jeffery's opinion, and he has carefully traced it  across the gulch, a continuation of  the famous Skylark vein. At the  poirft where it is being |opened up  the vein is about five inches in width;  with considerable gauguev on both  sides, heuvily iron-stained and oxy-  dized. There is also a great iron stain  in and about vein No. 1. Vein No. 3  haB been traced into vein No. 2 and it  is the intention now to drift on it until  the .junction of the two is reached.  Vein No. 2 is being worked in two  places 300 feet apart. At one point  a shaft is being sunk on the vein,  which shows up most distinctly about  12 irichcs"in_ width. Further- southa  tunnel has been started on the lead  At present the blacksmithshop ori the  next group, the Cora-Canadian is being  utilized, but Lhe site for the mine  buildings has been chosen and active  building operations will be started at  once. Fourteen men are now employed and there will be no let-up to  the jivoik.0 A trial shipment of ore  will be made as soon as possible.  Asked as to the truth of the rumor  that Colonel Dickason had purchased  the control of the Crescent, Mr. Bailley  said that it was quite correct, but that  he was not quite ready to make any  statement concerning the deal. Mr.  Bailey said also that the Preston owners had purchased two small fractions  between the Preston arid the Crescent  and Cora-Canadian.  . This being so, it is fair to presume  that the same course of active development will be instituted on the Crescent as has been on the Preston. The  Crescent, under the management of  Harry Shallenberger, has been put  into g-ood shape for shipping and  it is extremely probable that his plans  with regard to building a road to the  Great Northern Phoenix branch will  be carried out.  The Times purposes, if obtainable,  giving a full* description of the property and the plans of the new owners  in next week's issue.  On the Prince Henry, the shaft first  started has for the time being been  abandoned, and the men are now engaged sinking on the lead further  south than the old shaft and lower on  the hill. The lead was very flat at  first but it has now straightened up  and is dipping  at the same  angle as  On Thursday evening a large gathering assembled in the Methodist church  to bid farewell, officially, to the Rev.  J. P. D. Knox, who for the last four  years has labored most faithfully at  Greenwood and leaves" in a, few days  for Rossland. his next circuit. Tables,  were laid in the church and fairly  groaned with good fare. After the  inner man was satisfied, Mr. Clarice  called the audience to order and after  the preliminary religious exercises had  been gone through with, Mr. W. G.  Gaunce addressed the meeting, saying  some particularly complimentary words  to Mr. Knox. The following- gentlemen also spoke during the evening:  Rev. D. McKee, and Messrs. Dynes  and Braden. J. R. Brown, M. P. P.,  ou behalf of the congregation? read an  address and presented Mr. Knox with  a purse of money. Mr. Knox replied  at the close and referred., as had several  of the previous speakers, to the very  sad and unexpected illness of Mrs.  Petch, who, with Mr. Petch, had oeen  one of the leaders in getting up the  banquet. Mr. Knox spoke of the work  here and the success that had attended  his efforts, and he said that he left  Greenwood with genuine regret, but  hoped, inasmuch as he'was still chairman of West Kootenay district, to be  able to come over from Rossland once  iri a while and conduct services here.  The proceedings during' the evening  were of a very quiet nature, by request,  there was no applause to any item on  on the programme.  A. MUSICAL COMEDY COMPANY  The greatest of all colored organizations, ','The Hottest Coon in Dixie"  -will be seen here at the opera'House,  Thursday, June 15.

The piece is a lively musical farce  comedy in two acts, nnd that niimerons  class of theatregoers who revel in  hearing the latest "rag time" song  hits of the day and catchiest kind of  "Coon" melodies will have one of the  richest treats in store for them.

The  claims were located tor a local syndicate, of which the officers are: Dr. J.  E. Spankie, president; Hugh McCutcheon, vice president; J. R. Brown,  secretary, and E. R. Redpath, treasurer,  and is known as the Greenwood Petroleum Syndicate.

We have  not yet sunk so low that we are  willing to put women to work;on  the belts'; but in these days of  rapid movement, who knows to  what depth we may yet descend ?  Doubtless the plea is made over  there that the women are glad to  have the work; that it is not half  so laborious as it sounds, and that  the women thus engaged are not  the delicate creatures we are accustomed to regard as the weaker  sex., ���Specious" reasoning, all of  it! Whoever has seen the undersized, hard-featured, woman that  sometimes sits outside 'of a mine  sorting ore on the dump, remembers that-he took no ijoy in the  sight. .

Riley Bennett, a chemist of  Brown's Town, Jamaica, West India  Islands, writes: "I cannot speak too  highly of Chambe'rlain'6 ' Cough  Remedy. It has proved itself to be the  best remedy for whooping cough,  which is prevalent on this end of the  globe. It has 'never failed to relieve  in any case where I have recommended  it, and grateful mothers, after using  it, are daily thanking me for advising  them."

Women in collieries.  The daily" papers team with  horrors that are the, outcome of  revolting practices in our industrial life. The' brutal pains and  dog-like humiliation that attend  on many latterda-y methods of  production and the unfairness exercised in awarding compensation to the chief producers are  frequently so great that no human production is valuable  enough to be"worthy of such sacrifice. Better, the idealist would  say, that we should wear forever  aprons of fig leaves or mantles  madeifrom the skins of wild animals than that little children  should sweat out their tender  lives before the spools and looms  of our cotton mills. The indus-  trial situation in this land of ours  is not one we need feel vainglorious about���the violence of strikes  in our city streets or the plunder  of the people's savings by those  intrusted with them are sufficient  to make us conscious of the irony  of too much self praise���but at  least decent Americanism halts  yet before one indignity that is  put upon the race in some other  countries.

The following extracts ' are taken  from Gold' Commissioner McMynn's  annual report to the department of  mines, and published in the Annual  Report of the Minister of Mines:    ���  THE MOTHER LODE.  At'the B. C. Copper company'-* Mother  L,o<?e mine substantial progress  was  made last year.   The open workings  Wete   considerably enlarged���in   fact  they are now one big quarry, the dividing   masses  of   ore   having   been  broken down  and sent to the smelter.  There is here ia long, double-tracked  adit, known* aslthe mule tunnel, from  which half a 'dozen raises have been  made to'the quarries above.   Near the  end   of this tunnel a big stope was  . openeda few months, ago in a large  body of good ore.   When the mine was  visited .this raise was1 up.,150 feet in  ore  most  of the way, but there  remained about SO feet more to be passed  through before the Connection would  be /made. ,' The consolidation /of  the  crushing plants, having been decided  upon, a new tunnel was driven, to intersect the main shaft, from which the  200-foot , and    300-rfoot    levels   were  - opened, on the same level as the quarry  ��� tunnel.   At the shaft a large,pocket  has been excavat.d, and this will discharge the 4 to 5-ton* skips; obtained to  replace the cages previously used. The  skips will empty.intb a bin at the head  of the shaft,- the ore passing thence to  either one of a pair of Jenckes-U'arrell  crushers, ea��h having  a jaw opening  of 24 to 36 inches.   These crushers will  be worked by two engines,-driven by.  compressed air, so arranged that either  engine can drive either crusher, thus  reducing chances of stopages by break  downs in either engines or crushers.  A belt conveyor will take the crushed  ore to'the main'ore bins for shipment  by rail to the company's smelter at  Greenwood. '  All   the plant   for  this  improved- arraugement   for  crushing  the ore has. been purchased and some  of   it   has    already    been    Installed.  Where the excavation was made for  the crushers a body,'of good orewas  opened up and from.'this six-to seven  thousand tons were taken  out.   This  body of ore has since been proved to  de of considerable size, recent reports  placing its dimensions, so far as yet  explored, at 200 by 130 feet.   The diamond drill has been used underground  during recent months with satisfactory results,'one hole proving the oc-   curreace of-good -magnetic_oxide_or_e_  down to 345 feet below the collar of the  shaft, at which depth the drill was  withdrawn.  In some respects the Mother Lode is  fairly  representative   of   the   larger  copper-gold ore deposits oscnrriug in  the Boundary distriot.   The croppings  are in places soft oxides of iron from  decomposition   of   ore-bearing "rock,  and in others 'altered  magnetic iron  oxides, very solid and compact, carrying copper pyrites and gold.   In other  places  they  are  calcite  and   copper  pyrites,   iron* pyrites,   more  or  less  quartose material, and carrying some  gold.     These  croppings  differ  from  those ont the Granby company's Knob  Hill mine, in which specular iron occurs? a fine-grained  magnetite being  being more' characteristic of the  Mother Lode outcrops, the chief of  which was a big copper-stained blowout, standing out prominently and distinctly noticeable from all of the surrounding thinly-timbered hills.  The footwall, as   disclosed   by   development w��rk, is for the most part  limestone,   and   the   hanging-wall   a  diabase.   On the footwall side there is  not,   as a rule,  a   marked  transition  from ore-bearing or barren rock, but  the ore often grades into  the country  rock outside of what is more or less  defined as the ore body, so that it is  difficult to tell within a few feet where  the pay pre will run out.   On the other  hand the ore gives place to the barren  country rock on the hanging-wall side  with comparative abruptness, fading  * away completely within a foot or two.  The chemical combination of the harie-  r ing-vra.ll and of the ore lying against  it���leaving  out'the   pyrites���is   substantially the same.   According to the  best^ geological .authorities who have  examined the district, the" ore-bodies  are altered limestone. Here, as at the  Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and B C,  porphyry dykes intrude, and it is considered quite probable that these  intrusions' afforded means of ingress  for the ore-carrying solution from be  nes th; consequently, the presence of a  porphyry dyke is usually regarded in  this district as a favorable' indication  when prospecting"for ore.  Although the croppings of the Mother  Lode appear in somewhat of a crescent  shape, the general trend of the lead or  ore deposit is north and south. The  ore bodies pitch to the east at an angle  of 55 to 65 degrees. The ores themselves may be classed in three general  groups: 1. A calcite carrying copper  pyrites, and iron pyrites, these sulphides sometimes jbeing massive and  sometimes scattered in small crystals  throughout the rock. Some quartzite  is .also often present. 2. Silicate of  lime, iron magnesia and alumina, carrying both, copper and iron pyrites,  massive or scattered, and frequently  often quartz, garnets or serpentine;  often all three together. Occasionally,  loo, a small quantity of zinc blende  occurs in this class of ore. 3. An excessively hard magnetic oxide of iron,  with silica and copper pyrites; not  often much iron pyrites.  For several years development work  was done undergroundj and much  crosscutting and drifting at the '200  and 300-foot levels has proved that  here, too, a large body of shipping  grade is available.   -  A main tunnel has been driven nearly  a thousand feet into the hill', on a level  with a   bench   on   which' hvae been  erected ore bins and other, facilities foi  ore' shipping, from this tunnel several  exploratory' crosscuts have been ..rut-  to determine the width of the ore, and  big raises have been made to the quarries  above.     The   main   quarry   was  opened at a- level about 110 feet above  that of the tunnel, and other quarries  below and above,   From the highest  point at which the ore outcrops on the  hill, down  to the level  of  the main  tunnel^the depth is about 260 feet.iaud  down to the bottom of the main shaft,  which is also in ore, about 350 feet  Half a dozen quarries have been opened  at different places, those'on the top of  the hill giving a larger percentage of  sulphur, which facilitates  matte-making   in 'the   smelter ; furnaces.   ' The  raises from the tunnels to the quarries are fun ne"-shaped at the top, so  that when blasted down from the faces  of the quarries, the ore may fall into  them   without   handling.    Rocks   too  large to pass through the bin gates of  the hoppers at the bottom, of the chutes  are "bulldozed." .The ore   is   drawn  from the chutes into 3-ton cars, which  are hauled >by, horses to  ore crushers  having each a capacity of 65 to 80 tons  of rock an hour, crushing to a size not  exceeding    Ave    inches.   , From   the  crusher an  elevating, machine raises  the   ore to  shipping bins  above   the  railway track.    /, '  The Mother Lode is opened up sufficiently to enable it to maintain an  output up to 1,000 tons perdiein, whenever the company shall increase the  treatmentcapacit'y of the smelter.  SMITH'S CAMP.  The development work carried on at  the Republic group, in Smith's comp,  since last September, in order to secure a series of shipping tests, has resulted very satisfactorily. The quantity of ore exposed on three of the  properties the permanence and con-k  tinuity of the leads, coupled with the  smelter returns, all combine to demonstrate that the Boundary is about to  add another producer to its growing  list of high-grade propositions.  The Republic group comprises the  Last Chance, Republic, None Such and  Hidden Treasure mineral/claims. It  is owned by the Republic Gold Mines,  limited, of which W. T. Smith, a pioneer of the district, is the general  manager. Mr. Smith has just received  the smelter returns of a recent carload  shipment of 20 tons of ore from the  Last Chance claim. The ore was  treated at the Hall Mines smelter, Nelson, B. C. The carload, according to  the official certificate,  averaged. 18%  ���  Just What Everyone Should Do.  Mr. J. T.

It has  vast bodies of low-grade ore that  require for their profitable treat-  treatment a railway to either  bring coke in to smelters that  will undoubtedly be built, or carry  the ore to outside smelters. It is  not a question of which of the  great railway' corporations is  "putting up" the most cash to  gain its ends, but it is a question  of the absolute requirements of  the Similkameen in the development of its vast mineral and agricultural resources. In opposing  railway competition for the Similkameen, newspapers not in any  way interested in the district  must be considered as opponents  of progress or the subsidized  mouthpieces of one of the corporations. No newspaper man who  has advocated railway competition for his home district can oppose railway competition for the  Similkameen without the suspicion of imbecility or pecuniary  gain. The Vancouver Province  cannot help its predilections for  the C. P. R., but the Nelson  Tribune, the "champion of equal  rightsjind a square deal to all,  well, perhaps old age���dotage���  would be the most charitable explanation of its position on the  railway question.  men were making arrangements  for the eelebratien of Dominion  Day, if they intend having a celebration.

It would perhaps  be just as well for homestead purposes if the blinding snowstorms  would come earlier than May 23.

Just the opposite  was claimed would result from the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway  entering Nelson. The Tribune  was one of the most ardent supporters of the Corbin extension.  At that "time Nelson had connection with both the C. P. R. and  Great Northern systems? -When  railways were being advocated  to the south'from Vancouver the  people did not claim that connection to the south would drain the  resources of the province. Vancouver then had connections by  water with all the American  transcontinental railway systems,  yet railway connection with the  south was deemed a necessity.  The Similkameen country is in  a wors position than either Nelson or Vancouver when the people of those places made a fight  The special police have been  recalled- from Salmo, and the  Chinese are in peaceable possession of a village in which there  were a few weeks ago a dozen  white families. The white population of British Columbia should  be proud of their representatives  in the legislature. They should  also be -proud of the fact that  citizens of this country can' be  hired at $60 a month to drive  whites out of their homes and  replace them with Chinese, when  men can earn $3 a day with pick  and shovel. Our provincial police are a large-souled, high-  minded, independent class. They  hunt in packs.  The person who sends to Tim  Eaton for a handkerchief or a  pair of socks, is just as potriotic  and of as much benefit to the  community as .the fellow who  walks to Midway, crosses the line,  purchases a couple of dollars  worth of tobacco and smuggles  it into the country. Both should  be given the privilege of earning  their living where they purchase  their supplies. Such people are  Chinese���bleached.  Perhaps the most gratifying  feature is the continued, hfgh  market price of copper. The'current schedule is the highest since  1901, speculative'fluctuations notwithstanding. During the past  four years there has been noteworthy expansion in consumption, especially in the United  States. ' .Momentarily producers-  book's show that they are well  sold up for several mouths ahead.  An unfortunate' occurrence has  been the strike at the Lake copper mines, causing a heavy curtailment in the April output.  The mines in the Lake Superior  region furnish nearly one-third  of the output of j copper in the  United. States. Lake mines, are  earning handsome profits, and  with copper selling at two to two  and a half, cents .per pound more  than lasti year, larger, dividends  have'been paid. Arizona, is the  third, .largest producing state,  and as the larger mines have consolidated to facilitate the, business, policy that has made the  Lake Superior mines such a grand  success, dividend payments are  growing. * * * * Surely  there is no better evidence that  copper mining is remunerative  than the dividends of $12,596,537  which have been paid' by 16  American companies in the past  five months.���Mining World.   .

To  what depth it will go is yet problemati  cal. Besides the installation of the  necessary power for hoisting machinery, a-'mammoth ore crusher, capable,  of handling 1,500 tons each .ten hours,  .will be erected at the head works of  the shaft. The completion of the shaft  will provide three outlets for the ore.  It is understood -generally ^that during the past few months a large sum  of money' was expended in improvements looking to the more economical  handling and treatment of the ore.  The announcement-made shows the  great confidence the directors have in  the future oi the big mines, when on  the completion of the shaft such a tonnage will be sent to the smelter as will  insure, even at'a far less price than  copper now commands, substantial returns in the shape of dividends.  It is also announced that before  snow fiiesi another big furnaie is to be  added to the capacity of^the company's  Grand Forks smelter, making nine in  all..���It may ��.ot_bejgenerally���known,  but it is a fact, nevertheless, that today these redu*tion works stand third  on the list in the actual smelting capacity cf copper ores on the American  continent.

PRESENTATION TO REV. KNOX-  Thursday evening last the congregation of the Methodist church presented RevT J. P. D. Knox, the retiring pastor, on the eve of his departure  for Rossland, with a substantial sum  of money and the following address:  Dear Pastor: The members, adherents and attendants of the Methodist church in Greenwood desire, on  this the eve of your departure for a  new-field of labor, to express their deep  and earnest appreciation of the work  you have done 'in Greenwood and  vicinity during the past four years.  Your labors here were very often  carried on under circumstances that  required a great amount of patience  and self-denial on your part, but you  never complained, and with'exemplary  Christian fortitude you 'labored zealously and -persistently during the  whole term that it has been our privilege to have you as our pastor.  Your devotion to duty, your unfail -  ing kindness, your ever alert and  catholic 'sympathies, and your 'helpfulness on all occasions where you  could be of assistance pertaining not  onl}* to this church, but to the City of  Greenwood and vicinity as well, have  won you 'a place in our hearts and  thoughts which time shall never efface.  While it gives us pleasure to acknowledge our appreciation of your  labors here and of your many sterling  .qualities as a" high-minded, considerate, Christian gentleman, we cannot  help but regret at the same time that  there must now be a severance of the  ties and' of the ..relations that have  been to us so entirely satisfactory..  We trust that your new��field of labor  in the City of Rossland may prove  congenial to you, that you1 may. be  blessed with health and happiness in  the coming years, and that your Master, Whom you serve, may n'chly bless  your efforts in the days to" come, for  the furtherance of His cause and the  upbuilding of His kingdom. i  In conclusion, we beg to express the  hope that we may in future frequently  have the pleasure of a visit.from you,  and we ask you in token of our respect  and affection and as a> slight mark of  our appreciation to accept this small  sum of 'money as a parting remembrance from the congregation you have  "mini3fered"to~soT faithfully ~and "acceptably for the last four years.

The regular meeting of the city  council was held Monday evening, at  which were present Mayor Naden and  Aldermen Bunting-, Caulfield, Parker  and Smailes. Minutes of previous  meeting' were read and and adopted.  Communications were read and disposed of as follows:  From Alderman J. H. McNeill, stating that* he was now a resident of  Grand Forks and could not attend to  his duties as alderman, so tendered his  resignation. Resignation accepted  and Sth of June named for nomination,  election, if any, on the 8th June.  From Fred Starkey, enclosing following resolution passed- at a mass  meeting held in Nelson April 26th:  " Resolved, That this mass meeting  of citizens of Nelson condems the action of the Kootenay Shingle company,  in introducing Chinese and Japanese  labor into an industry 'hitherto employing white labor only, in violation  of public opinion of the Kootenay.  " It also condemns the action of the  provincial government in permitting  the police force of the province to be  used to assist the Kootenay Shingle  company 'in carrying out the policy  condemned in the foregoing resolution  and calls upon the government to  withdraw the special police force at  present maintained in Salmo.  "It'calls upon the government to use  such means as are in their power to  bring  about  the abandonment of the  policy adopted by the Kootenay Shingle  ompany, and prevent its adoption in  any other instance, and thus  sustain  he avowed policy of this and previous  governments in  persistently  reenact-  i ng legislation having as its sole aim  : he prevention of the employment of  Chinese and Japanese in the industries  of the province in competition  with  white labor.  "It further" directs the attention of  t he government to the disastrous rffect  of the  employment of such labor in  breaking up the homes of a community  established at Salmo,  and depriving  the white laborers of the accumulated  f ruits  of  their  industry; and it is the  o pinion of this meeting that like results* will   follow j the   adoption of a  similar   policy wherever   it is 'introduced, and will'further seriously affect  ' the business of every  part of  the dis-  ttict directly  or indirectly, dependent  on the prosperity of such localities.  " Resolved, That copies of* these  resolutions be forwarded to the mayor  of each city in Kootenay with a view,  to their endorsement. "  Owing to,the time that has elapsed  since the foregoing resolutions were  passed, and the government having  since taken steps to remave the cause  of complaint, it was decided to take no  action on resolutions. >  From Chas.

With the successful de**  velopment of the immense large bodies of low, grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities.for treating,  at a very small cost,    the continued opening up of new high grade properties and their' successful and profitabl  operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds, and  bigger values.
