 H  NELSON HELPED KASLO OUT ON  THE   QUEENS   BIRTHDAY.  The celebration at Kaslo passed off  very pleasantly. The committee in  charge of the affair were disappointed  early in the day to learn that Sandon  had decided to go to Silverton, in preference to Kaslo, but this was more than  olf-set when the Nelson excursionists  more than 350 strong lilcd oil' the steamer Moyie. The points along the Kaslo  and Slocan road, between Sandon and  Kaslo, also sent in a goodly number of  representatives, and these with the Bonner's Ferry, Kuskonook and Creston  people, who came in on the steamer Alberta, rounded out the crowd of holiday  makers to 2500.  ���The excursion from Nelsoii had several  attractive features. Iii the first place  the finest steamer on Kootenay lake was  commissioned for the, trip, and with a  ��� 'view to the fitness of things the steamboat company had its best officers on its  best ship. For another thing the excursion was strong on babies. Tliere were  babies of all kinds and sizes, and whenever the steamer whistled an answering  salute to the loyal greetings from points  of call each kid set up a yell of its own,  which was enjoyed by all save the  mothers, who had been boasting previously of the good behavior of their hereinbefore mentioned kids. Seeking to turn  the presence of so many good-looking  babies to account, alderman Hi 1 Iyer  made all arrangements for the holding of  a show, but his object was defeated by  the deflection of purser Moore, who was  the unanimous choice of the ladies as  judge of the show. When Moore refused  to act there was not a competent man  who would consent to discharge the obligations of the ollice, so each mother  was allowed to remain content in her  own mind that had the show been held  her own cherub would have carried off  the honors. This put them all in excellent humor and the occupants of the  ladies' saloon Avere ou the best of terms  throughout the trip as a result.  When the excursionists arrived at  Kaslo they were Aveleomed by a salute of  dynamite which was second only to the  welcoming salute received at Ainsworth.0  The Kaslo brass band Avas also at the  wharf,-- with seA'eral hundred Kasloites,  and Avlien the band ofthe Nelson Salvation Army had run through the intricacies of "We Avou't go home till morning," the, local .band  pulled out the stop  FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 2(1,  ISflO.

The play  was  sharp  but neither side scored, and   the  tie was  not played off owing to the lack of time.  It was   when  the baseball   game was  called,   between    Bonner's   Ferry    and  Nelson, that "Jim"   McDonald   recovered  from   the  defeat  of   the  hose team, and  took a fresh interest  in   the  celebration.  The ball team he considered his strongest  combination.    It Avas not until   play was  called that the personnel   of   the  Nelson  team   was   known.     It   was  made up.ass  follows:    Eacritt 3b, Emerson  ss,  Rockenfieid p, Coverley c, Moore lb, Smith 2b,  Hawkins rf, Blackburn If, and  Votau  cf.  Tliey were sent in to bat  and   rolled  up  eight   runs   iu  four   hits and five errors.  Eacritt came first and Avas presented Avith  a base   on  an error  at  short.    Emerson,  who folloAved Avent out at first.    Rocken-  field the now pitcher then put in a home  hit and the score Avas started.    Coverley  folloAA*ed with a three-base hit and scored  on Moore's hit to  short, whieh Avas fumbled.    Smith struck out.    HaAvkins gaA'e  the man at second bag a chance to   make  an error, wliich  he accepted  and Moore  scored.      Blackburn    and   Votau   made  short hits whieh Avere   not  handled   and  Hawkins scored.    Eacritt made a  hit on  his second turnout at the bat and Blackburn scored.    Emerson then  got  a  long  hit and Votau  and  Eacritt  crossed  the  plate.    Rockenfieid  then  struck out and  retired the side Avith eight runs.  There AA'as not a hit made in the  second inning, but Blackburn opened the  third Avith a tA\'o-base hit. Votau struck  out. Eacritt got first on an error, and  Blackburn aud he scored on a clean hit  by Emerson. Rockenfieid then made a  long hit to left held aud Emerson and  he scored on a three-base hit by CoA'erley.  Moore made a hit and scored CoA'erley.  Smith struck out and Moore came home  on the fumble of HaAvkins infield hit.  Blackburn retired the side striking out.  The next three innings produced two  hits by Moore and HaAvkins, but no men  crossed the plate. In the seventh inning  Rockenfieid struck out. Coverley Avas  hit by Wilson.and sent  to  first.

J. O. Patenahde, "Who took the time for  the performance, said Chat the AVater  came at 29| seconds, but as the play pipe  AA'as not on the time did not cut much  figure.  This gave the lvaslo boys a sure thing  on the first money as they could "win in a  walk, provided they made the necessary  couplings. ���' They did not do this, Iioav-  ever, but gave a good exhibition of running.

In the seventh Luke got his. base 01.  bulls and Shonlffer Scored him on a.three-  base hit. McDonald then struck out and  Cook scored ShdtffTler on another three-  base-hit. In the last two innings three  of the Bonner's Ferry men sti'iick out  and the others died at first.  So far as the Nelson team's play Avent  the bulk of it fell to Rockenfieid and Ooa**-  erly. Of the twenty-SeA'eu men retired,  Rockenfieid had tAventy-one of them  placed to his credit, and but thirteen of  the thirty-seven men at bat reached first.  The Bonner's Ferry man pitched a good  game but he received wretched, support.  He struck out tAvehre men but the errors  came in costly places and shut out any  chance of success.

It Avas sailed in a good breeze and  captain McLellan's boat was outclassed.  One of the most interested spectators of  the race AA'as captain McDongall,Avho had  counted upon entering his new sloop, but  as the craft is just receiving the finishing  touches at the hands of George Hale at  The   queen's    birthday   excursion    to  NeA\'   Denver    and     Sih'orton    avus    a  success.     The    Canadian    Pacilic    train  left      the      Nelson     depot     promptly  at   7   o'clock,   haA'ing   on    board    over  two    hundred    excursionists,    including  the\    hose    cart    team,     baseball    and  lacrosse teams.     Many of the passengers  had never been OA'er the route in daylight  and were enthusiastic in their admiration  of the scenery along the Kootenay and  Slocan rivers.    Slocan City aa'iis reached  at 11 o'clock, but OAving to tlie delay in  the arriA'al  of the  steainer  Slocan,  the  excursionists   Avere forced  to  spend  an  hour in Avhat is acknowledged  to be the  prettiest toAvnsite iii the Kootenays. During  the   delay . the   excursionists   Avere  entertained  with  music  by  the  Slocan  City band.    Delegations  from Silverton  and Ncav Denver had come down  on the  early boat to meet the excursionists  to  induce as many as possible to spend the  day in their respective toAvns.     No incidents of note occurred until Sifvertou  Avas reached, Avhen a number of pleasure  seekers left the boat to Avitness the horse  races and drilling contests  Avhieh were  Silyerton's chief attractions for the day.  The   larger   number  Avent   on   to NeAV  DeiiA'er to see the hose reel race between  the Nelson  aud Rossland  fire brigades  and the baseball match betAveen the Nelson and Sandon teams.    On the wharf at  Silverton a large arch of eA'ergreeus had  been erected Avith the Avords "Welcome"  and   "Come   Agahi"    printed   iii   large  letters.    The main street of the toAviiand  the principal business houses were gaily  decorated iu honor of the visitors.    The  excursion of the Sandon  Miners'  Union  had arrived at 10 o'clock bringing about  tAvo hundred and fifty people, and badges  bearing the inscription "Sandon Miners'  Union No. 125" Yvere very much in evidence duriug the day.

At 0 o'clock the steamer Slocan whistled lor the Sandon excursionists to get  on board for the return trip, but owing  to the heavy windstorm the boat did not  pull out for half an hour. At 7.30 the  steanier returned from New Denver Avitli  the Nelson excursionists and the return  trip Avas started. Slocan City was  reached at 0 o'clock and tliere was a  great rush to secure seats in the train. It  may be news to the passengers on the  train, but several times on the trip tliere  Avere rather close calls from accidents.  During the windstorm in the afternoon a  number of trees Avere blown across the  track and engineer McNabb had to exercise especial vigilance to avoid running  into them. Passengers avIio were enjoying a rjuiet nap on the traiu Avere  aAvakcned at intervals by the sound of  A\'ood chopping, and on examining the  cause found'that men were engaged cutting an obstruction off the track. Nelson AA'as reached at 12.30vand the Aveary  excursionists started at once for home  and bed.  The Silverton reception committee,  consisting of William Hunter, R. O.  Mathcson, Grant Thorburn, A. Cross and  James Bowes did eA'erything possible to  proA'ide a pleasant day for their Sandon  and Nelson guests.  ��� The queen's birthday celebration at  Ncav DeiiA'er Avas a successful function,  though marred toA\'ards the end by a  heavy Avind and rain storm. The day itself Avas most favorable for the carrying  out of the eA'ents on the programme and  Avas safely passed through Avithout detracting incident. There Avas a large  croAvd of spectators iu. attendance, coming from the A'arious toAvns and camps in  the district. . Those coming from Rossland and Nelson Avere met at Slocan City  by the reception committee nnd the  band, their arrival at Ncav DeiiA'er being  announced by the firing of a royal salute.  A procession Avas formed and, headed  by the ^LeW   PeuA'er band "in..ad vaiice Of  training, and Avere clearly outmatched,  Nelson Avinuing by a score of 14 to 3, the  Sandons playing soA-en innings and the  Nelsons six.  FoIloAving this came the lacrosse game,  Nelson vs. New DeiiA'er, the prize going  to the county town, as in* fact eA'erything  else. The rain interfered with this game,  much to the disappointment of the spectators. Notwithstanding that the score  Avas 4 to 0 for the winners, yet the play  throughout Avas . enlivened by many  pretty combinations. Nelson has in its  team the making of British Columbia  champions, and it was a pleasure to  watch their stick work. DeiiA'er put up  a plucky game, showing that they could  play a losing game pluckily.  The scheduled football match did not  materialize, owing to the storm. NeAV  Denver Avas in readiness for all comers  and they Avould have put up a Avinuing  game. The Nelson team did hot turn up  as expected, but the Sandon boys graciously consented to take their place.  After supper several teams entered for  ���a drilling contest, for a prize of $75, and  the contest was one of the best of the0  day. It Avas avou by "Anson" and McDonald of Ten-mile, who drilled 27��  inches iii hard rock. Second money avus  taken.by Murphy and Johnson, AA'ith 22  inches.  The day's celebration Avas brought to a  close by a grand ball under the auspices  of the New DeiiA'er brass band.  NELSON HAD MUCH FUN BUT DID  NOT   CELEBRATE.  Woods 2."  C. R: Anderson 1,  J.

On the Mabou claim, adjoining the 1 <__.11���  terpri-e group, 'on Ten Mile, tho 'main  drift litis broken into some good pay ore.  The tunnel is in seventy feet and the ore  has made its appearance between seams  of quart/.. It is similar'in character to  the Enterprise. An opening has also,  been made on the Neepawa, vein which;  runs through the Mabou, and preparation made for tunneling. A promising  chute of ore has been cut on this also,  which gives splendid assays; Work will  be steadily pushed at both points.  The shaft being sunk on.the Ohio; just  above the Mabou, has cut into ore on tlie  main lead. It is mixed with live and  healthy -quart/., and extends the full  width of the vein. The showing has  greatly encouraged the owners.  P. Griffiths is making rapid headway in  his drifting to the vein on the West-  mount, opposite the Enterprise. His  diligence is commendable, and everyone'  believes he .will .strike it big, as the'West-  mount has the ear-marks��of a mine.  The snow lies deeply among the trees  as yet in Ten Mile valley; though the  Mast few days has reduced it greatly.  Several heavy slides have come down. A'  particularly savage and mammoth  avalanche litis opened up a new track  down the west slope of Wes .mount  mountain into ,Brin die creek, making a  clean sweep of the forest.iri'.its path and  badly blocking the stream.  Prospecting on the ground of the  Black Cloud claim, on Westmourit mountain and opposite the Enterprise, has;,just  disclosed some very fine galena. There  is a big vein running* through the property audit should pan out .well.' P. W.  Eilis of Toronto is a heavy shareholder,  iu the claim.  Y Tlie Enterprise mine on  Ten ..'Mile, re-  George A. Bigelow of Creston, who  arrived in Nelson last evening, reports  that a deal is on for the purchase of the  Lake Shore, Moyie, Queen of the Hills,  Peter and St. Eugene mines near Moyie  City. All these properties are on tho one  ledge, the Lake Shore being distant from  the line of the Crow's Nest Pass railway  about one-eighth of a mile. J. B. Hastings, of the War Eagle company, and a  representative of the British America  Corporation are now on the ground, and  it i.s said that there is a lively competition ou between the rival corporations  for the securing of the entire group of  claims.  The St. Eugene and Peter property is  owned by John A. Einch, Peter -'Larsen,  .James Cronyn and AVhite. It is upon the  St.. Eugene that the greatest amount of  work litis been done. The price set by  the owners is said to be $400,000 plus the  value of the improvements which they  'have now in hand, consisting of a tram-  Avay, concentrator and ore bins, which  one is estimated to cost $85,000. - Tliere is  FULL LINE OF  a large quantity of ore blocked out iu  the St. Eugene wliich has aii average  value of from 50 to (30 ounces silver and  from 45 to 50 per cent lead. James  Cronyn, superintendent of the St. Eugene,  says that by September 1st he will be  putting 150 tons per day through the  concentrator, which will yield an average  profit of $30 per ton.  The Queen of the Hills and Moyie properties tire owned chiefly by E. P. Davis  of Vancouver and the price set upon  them is placed at $200,000. The lowest  property on the ledge is the Luke Shore,  which is owned by Murphy nnd others.  the selling price, of which is said to be  $125,000. These figures indicate tliat the  deal upon the several properties would  require something OA*er $810,000.  m~  ���>-e3-ez>.  mi  B  B  B  B  B  PUP & TREG1LLUS  _ ^uil-1% ~~i%%'j !��^&fp!?>yed> .ii t" *' 41$. - Stilt;  ��*&ftffrife$n^^^  . ���T^^%ip\fi0^r^^;"at the.;' ������jptli-Bua^  Yv]ios|:.it"aO^ mastoid"  . f$8Gi$^&1$j$$,{MbaxiJayim;^oMn;|%-  ��� .cGssftii-*yv spemormed��.an * ���qp _ i*a_iou t * j?hot.'  y.
