We regret that we cannot please the  Oiie of the most successful and enjoyable day's sport ever held in Revelstoke was that of Tuesday in celebration of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.  A fir-.t-cla.ss programme was prepared  by the various committees and its execution was- umnarred hy any serious  fault, disturbance or accident.  The proceeding-opened with a baseball match on the recreation grounds'  at! ]() a.m. Tlie game was a tame one,  the teams being unequally matched,  and the Gold Hills won how they liked  with a big score, in five innings.  'li AFTEllNOON"  EVENTS.  .  The athletic sports began at2p.m.  and from start to finish each event  was well contested. "The first number  ���������100 yds. race for hoys���������was won by  Frank Brown, williAV. Beavo, second,'  and J. Benson, third." The open 100  yds. was a Hue race; though the ground  was poor'for sprinting; and was won  hy/i*. E. L.'Taylor, wilh Geo. Eckurd  second. In the amateur 100 W/F.  Crage finished first, with W. Morris a  good second. The high jump, though  stubbornly contested, was .not very  high ; Beit Gainer winning it with 4 ft.  9 in., R. Mcllinovle second. Mctlinovle  also won the long jump with 18 ft. 6 in.  Chas.  Field' being,second-with ��������� 17 ft.  10 in. In -the quarter-mile open -Mc-  Ihnoyle finished first , and Taylor  second. This was a capital race, but.  not of as much interest as the following one for amateurs over the same  course. The pace was set, so hot by,  Moore that.no one was surprised when  he fell out after covering (lie first lap,  and it required gooll staying power in"  iLeake to win first, place from Crage  who had a spurt left foi the finish.  The hop,,step and jump was captured  by Gainer who covered  'Ml ft.,,Thomas  being next-vvit.il .'5 ft.    The-pc'de-vault'  was a pntlty   <jv������-iit. and. laid   between  Mclhnovle   and   Gainer,   in     the   the  o  older named, (hough   Mollison made a  gallant  struggle 'to   get   in.   Johnny  Sutherland   was a general  favorite in  ' putting the 10 lh.estone,  and   he  won  with   29, ft.'Al   in.;    D.   Dunbar   was  second.    The slone was a, very awkar-d-  Mine, to handle.    The amateur sack race  went-to Crage, with Trombley second,  but the others did not finish; they had  fallen by the wayside.   The next; event  ���������the.  one   mile   open���������was    of   great  general interest :iml,considering everything, such as the state of  the  ground  and   lack   of   tiaiuing,   was   veiy   well  run indeed.    Field   took   the  lead and  made the pace   to   tlie   finish.    Wilson  and Taylor lay well  in   the  rear  until'  the lib lap when lhey drew.up leaving  but   three   in   llu1.  race.    Wilson    was  fast gaining on   Field, but stopping to  take olF his  shoe  (one   had   fallen oif),  he gave the.   leader a  fresh   start   and  was unable to overhaul him. ��������� Wilson's  extra effort   to do  this almost lost him  second place, as his failure on the home  stretch nearly let Taylor in.    Field ran  well   and  deserved   his   win.     Wilson  was knocked out by his heavy effort.'  The consolation race, in which Moore  and Ross were winners, was a good  one, and then t he tug-of-war hi ought  the athletic piogramme lo a close;  Angus Macdouald's team winning  quickly.  The number "f people who witnessed  I he athletic, spoi I s was verv large, for  Ri'Vclsloke, and the arrangements  marie by the athletic, couimillee to  secure Lheiii.a view were taken full advantage of. The hand was an additional .'Ulriieliou and its capital music, lent  a good deal of spirit lo the proceedings.  EVKNJNfi   I'ltOnitAMMK.  In the evening the niuch-looked-for  bicycle nieces came oil' on Front street  when from one end to the. other that  I horoughfari1 ,was lined with spectators.  The first event was a quarter mile,  best 2 in '.i heat-.    Eddy Edwards   won  tailed close behind to the home stretch  when he spurted and won'easily.  The'winners rode the following 'machines, which shows , how different  their classes: Edwards, Cleveland  racer,'21 lbs., gear 88; Scott, Rambler  racer, 20 lbs., gear 80; Jackson, Gcnd-  'ro'n roadster, 24 lbs., g^ar 77; Morris  and Lewis, Gendron roadsters, 24 lbs.,  gear 77 and 76; Leake. Remington  roadster, 22 lbs., gear 78; Norlhey rode  Edwards' machine.   , "   '     ,  ' The bicycle races .vere all good and  interesting but showed some, necessity  for classification of'' nd.-rs. Local  cycler's should organize immediately  and put themselves in touch with,some  central association.  The horse race was then run and,  as hoise races generally do, raised eoii-  siderah!e^c:xeiU--i-.~nk~and- discussion.  .McCarty's horse got home first, but-  the start was questioned and it was run  again. This time Pettipiece's horse  got thete, but the start was again the  subject of dispute. ' The race was finally run off Thursday evening,,when, in  a very pretty race,' Pett ipiece's horse  won iu a close finish.  The races over, the band, wliich had  been enlivening the proceedings with  ,its music, led the way to the'Vecreation  grounds where a large crowd witnessed  the pyrotechnic display. This brought  the day's fun to a close, and every one  who has bven heard to express an  opinion on it said it was one of the  best yet seen. Considerable credit is  due Gold 'Commissioner Graham and  XV. H. Vickers who worked hard by  -soliciting, collecting, judging, etc., to  'make the day a success. The athletic  and othei committees, , too, worked  hard and,deserve great credit! for their  contributions to the, days  enjoyment.  THE BLOCKADE RAISED  CLOUDBURST CAUSES   IMMENSE  DAMAGE AND DELAY-  Yesterday a Train, the First for Seyen  Days, Brings Eastern Mails���������  Bridges and Culverts .Washed out  Through Travel Will Resume Tomorrow���������Passengers at Banff.

According    to   tlie   Golden    Era   tlie  washout  swept  away   sixteen bridges  and cuherts,including the Kananaskis,  Devils Head and Calgary bridges.   The  formation, it adds, was   swept  out for  about t'weKe miles and  fully 500 east-  hound   passengers    were' detained' at  Banff", where   they  were ��������� cared  for by  the company.

' Tin-: moral was' easily dra'wn from

Revelstoke is acquit ing'a reputation
iit the ptosont moment as   one   of   the
future   central  "large' towns   of   this
.country and all indications point toils
being a large city in a very few  jears.
<*-  We are  not looking   forward   to   this
future when we are,   without   a   recre-
'���ation ground.'    A city in this   year   of
grace without a   park   is   an   anomaly
that should be at once, corrected.   "All

would indeed be colorless and   morbid,
���ind   what, amusement   can   be   belter
than good   outdoor   recreation.     It   is
.the   salt-of   life.'   How, to   get   this
ground opened to   the   public 'is   the
.main  question.    After0 studying   the
: jmTtteTTjver we'favor the formation   of
an   athletic   association   which   would

HoNn'Mr. Digging interview with
