C, TUESDAY, AUGUST 13   1901  FIVE CENTS  FROM  PROVINCIAL POINTS  INJUNCTION APPLICATION WILL  BE HEARD TODAY.  Star Mining Company vs.  Byron N.  White Company���News Items  of Surrounding Camps.  SANDON, August 12.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���-The Star Mining and Milling Company's application for an, injunction against the Byron N. Whito  Company will come up in the Victoria  court on Tuesday. The Star Mining  and Milling Company' have a. force at  work stripping a' ledge which they claim  to he the Slocan Star ledge on the Rabbit Paw and Hober ground. The Byron  N. White Company is opening a ledge on  the Silversmith which they claim as the  apex of tlje Slocan Star ledge. The  question of ownership of the Slocan Star  ledge where it clips into Rabbit Paw  and Heber ground hinges on the correctness of these contentions. It will probably be the hardest fought mjining case  ever brought into the British Columbian  courts. John M. Harris of Sandon and  Drumh'eller of.Spokane are back of the  Rabbit Paw. ,  A bridge burned on the Nakusp and  Slocan road between Nakusp and Rose-  berry last night. Traffic is tied up on  the line today. *  A dangerous bush fire nearly took out  the Payne terminals-and office Sunday.  Men. were fighting fire all day.  ��� The bond of the Mountain Con. group  was thrown up today. The proporty belongs to W. W. Warner and was bonded  by A. H. Richie for an Old Country  company.  Ymir's Quota of News,  YMIR. August 12.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The Presbyterian manse will  bo completed in about 10 days. It is  rumored ,and true, too. tliat Rev. Mr.  Young,- the pastor, has a good prospect  in Nelson, which he intends to locate  in the manse next month.  P.   V.   Loth,   representing  Cincinnati  capital, is,looking over the camp.    He  is visiting all the-good properties.   The  company Mr. Loth represents-;is already  heavily interested around,herev   ,'.,,       c  William McGhie, at one time connect-  :   ed with C. Hillyer in the Nelson sawmill,  '   was in .'"Ymir. yesterday.    He inspected  the old Ymir sawmill.  There are over 200 men at present employed at the Ymir mill''and mine. With  the starting up of the Dundee and other  properties shortly, just watch Ymir's  smoke.  There was a fall in.glass early Saturday morning. Some one evidently full  of the cup that cheers, but inebriates,  while wending his weary feet home-  . ward, fell through the DesBrisay Jqb-  * bing Company's plate glass window,  completely demolishing it.  Plenty of 1-ackcaps,-abundance of red  raspberries, but halo huckleberries���on  account of the backward spring.  Prospectors are coming in every day  with their pockets full  of good  speci-   mens. One of the "gold seekers" inform-  ed_^Tribiine"representative~that~lre_dis~  covered an enormous ledge on his claim  on the mountain near Hail siding. Whon  asked how large, he replied that the  corner stakes did not take it in (over  1500 feet), running onto another claim.  A man that would tell a yarn like tho  above has a breath like a blizzard and a  record Of a convict.  Jim Graham, the pioneer prospector,  was in yesterday from the Yankee Girl,  and is very jubilant over prospects. The  Yankee Girl lies between the Evening  Star and the Dundee mine, and is one  of the most promising in the camp. The  ledge on the Yankee Girl is a continuation of the Dundee. They have an  open cut of about 22 feet and are now  running a shallow tunnel.  W. M. ColTee, the tonsorial architect,  returned Saturday after spending a couple of months visiting his old homo in  Wisconsin. Ho surprised the boys by  returning home by his lonesome, as he  gavo it out cold before leaving that he  would return with the best girl the  Badger state could produce; but probably he didn't look good to her.  William F. Edgar leaves Monday  morning with a crew of men for the  Big Horn. They will.continue work on  the tunnel to the, footwall. When this  property is further developed it will  "be as rich as' any, in' the camp. The  srbnp comprises the Big Horn, Green  'Horn and Sophia and is owned by the  Simcoe Mining Company. .  A crew of men leaves tomorrow (Monday) for the Big Four,' owned by the  British Lion Gold Mining Company, to  commence contract work on that property. ��� Mr. Manson has the contract.  Good assays have been taken from the  Copperopolis, adjoining the Happy  Thought, on Big Horn mountain. The  property is owned by Messrs. Edgar,  Woods and Frank Grantham. The Copperopolis has two distinct leads, but  there has been nothing done on the  property except assessment work. Assays have gone from $4 to $36 in gold  and 24 per cent in copper. The surface  showings are excellent, and the leads  can be traced through two claims. The  Big Horn mountain and Porcupine creel-  are bound to come to the front, as better  indications are not to be found in the  country.  Fruit and vegetable truck is drying  ���up for lack of water.   A good shower of ,.  rain   would  make   the gardeners   and  fruitmen in this camp laugh.  Tho public school will open in about  10 days, much to tlie joy of tlie parents.  Vancouver Notes.  VANCOUVER, August 12.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Large numbers of Indians and Chinamen are .crossing the  boundary line from Steveston to Blaine  to work in the canneries on the other  side of the lino. There is a great shortage in the labor'market there and much  higher prices for workmen in canneries  are being paid than on the Fraser.       ���  It is -reported here among Canadian  Pacific trackmen that the strike will  probably be settled this week at Montreal. The western delegation will arrive in the east in a few days. The  sole trouble now is recognition of  unions, the matter of wages being a  subject that can be easily adjusted.  The fish: run was greater than ever  last night. Fishing for three hours,  from G to 9, a limit of 200 per boat was  reached, and the canneries have more  than they can handle today.  News From the Boundary.  GRAND FORKS, August 12.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Grand Forks will  send its hose team to Greenwood to compete in the hose races there on Labor  day.   -  Several local clergymen are waging  a crusade against the proposed music  hall.

A by-law to raise $9000 for the purpose of providing additional school accommodation will be submitted to the  ratepayers on the 23d inst.  James H. McKechnie of Granby, Quebec, a leading shareholder of the,Miner-  Graves syndicate, is here on a visit, the  guest of A. C. Flumerfelt, the assistant  general manager.

Experts Admire Her Lines and Finish  and Think She Shows Every  Indication of Speed.  SOME 60,000 ARE NOW OUT  Battle Is Now Fairly On.  PITTSBURG, August 12.���The struggle for the mastery between the manufacturers and men in the steel industry is now fairly launched and on the  first show of strength advantage is with  the former. The general strike order  issued by president Shaffer of the Amalgamated Association has so far been  obeyed by only about 14,000 men, according to the* best figures obtainable  Jiere. Tjie__first_two_p_rel lminary__calls_  were answered by about 45,000 men, so  that the total number out is now in the  neighborhood of 00,000. The strikers  made gains here today over the showing  of ,last night, and their prospects for  further accessions at both McKeesport  and Wheeling during the'week are very  favorable. The action of the Amalgamated men at Chicago, Joliet and Bay-  view in refusing to come out and the  failure to secure any recruits in the  Carnegie group throughout the Kiske-  minetas valley and the big plants at  Ydungstown and Columbus, Ohio, havo  been markedly disappointing to them.  They are keeping up the fight, however,  in a spirited manner and claim that  they have strength in reserve which  will surprise their opponents. They are  pressing their advantage at McKeesport and Wheeling and their organizers  are still at work in those two cities.  Biys Join the Strike.  PITTSBURG, August 12.���Two hundred and fifty welding helpers came out  tonight and crippled the great butt  welding department of the National  Tube Works at McKeesport. The strikers are nearly all boys under IS and  comprise half of the force of helpers  in this department. Fully 2000 men will  be forced to quit work and the entire  department, consisting of 4800 men, is  expected to be idle. The.boys came out  against the wishes of the Amalgamated  officers. The young fellows are turbulent and it was their strike that began  the great steel strike and riots of 1891.  NEW   YORK,   August   12���The   new  American cup challenger, Shamrock II,  lay at anchor off Sandy Hook lightship  last night and early this morning she  was towed up the bay to Tompkinsville,  Staten Island.   She will be taken at once  to Erie basin, where she will be stripped  and her racing mast stepped.   Her spars  are ready and. there will be no delay  in getting her into racing trim. Whether  she will go into dry dock to have her  underbody cleaned before her trials outside is not yet known.    The challenger  of 1901 received a lively and enthusiastic  welcome from every craft in the harbor  as she came up the bay in tow of the  tug Robert Haddon.   She had her first  taste of the enthusiasm with which she  was to be greeted when two tugs filled  with newspaper men and the steam pilot  boat New York reached her anchorage  near Sandy Hook lightship at daylight.  The skippers of the tugs loosed their  whistles  and the  New  York  wafted  a  salute  with  her  siren.    The  Erin acknowledged the salute with three deep  blasts.    It was at her anchorage overlooking the field where she is to give  battle in September to the defender of  the cup that the yachting sharps had  their first glimpse of the new challenger  by.daylight.    The grace and beautiful  lines of her slender body were marred  by her cumbrous cruising rig, but one  glance, however, was sufficient to convince the experts that Watson had built  a much  handsomer boat than, the old  Shamrock.    She had none of that aggressiveness characteristic of the bulldog muzzle of the old boaC   Slender as  a   girl,   every    delicate   line    indicated  speed.    She looks the fastest boat ever  turned out in British waters.    One of  her beauties' is Watson's peculiar  tilt  of the counter.   .There is.no flat dish or  -tumble home along the topsidesi'and her  great  overhang gives  her the appearance of speed.   She was painted green,  like Lipton's first challenger.   She'raised  her anchor and took the tow line from  the Haddon at5:30. She flew sir Thomas  Lipton's private signal, a green shamrock in yellow field, from her masthead,  while her consort, the Erin, carried the  same pennant at her mainpeak.    The  American flag flew at her fore and the  British naval reserve flag; in which were  worked the colors of the Royal1 Ulster  Yacht Club, astern.    No statement was  offered as to the distance the yacht was  towed'by the Erin, but it is believed she  was towed fully'two-thirds of the way,  although the articles of agreement provide that the challenger shall/only be  towed "during calms, at intervals  between breezes."    She sailed ��� from-Gou-  rock July 27 at 10:30 a. m.   The total  length of the voyage was 3769 miles and  the actual running time was 14 days 9  hours and 45 minutes.   She anchored in  the Azores from 3 p. m. August.. 2d to  6:30 p. m. August 3d.    Her day's runs  =_wei*e:=J.6=m.iles,=2G0,=267,=287,=2S4,=27G,=  52, 186, 281, 250, 151, 267, 259, 247, 235,  241.  Every marine glass in the harbor  seemed leveled at the challenger as she  came on with streams of signal flags  from her yards, painting her'international code name "R M C B" against  the green and dripping sky. As she  passed Forts Wadsworth and Hamilton  at the narrows the Shamrock courteously displayed her ensign three times.  Hardly had her anchor hit the bottom  off Tompkinsville before throngs appeared on hill and pier-head to study  her lines with their glasses. A driving,  pelting rain did not seem to dampen  the ardor of those who desired an early  glimpse of tho new challenger. The  people aboard the steamer Sandy Hook  from Navesink Highlands crowded the  rail and gave three rousing cheers as  she swept by on her way to New York,  cheers that were answered with a will  by the crew of the Shamrock II.  resolution to consider the relation of  taxation to wages, wliich was referred.  The sympathy and moral support of the  union was extended to tho Amalgamated  Association of Iron, Tin and Steel Workers in their difficulty with the United  States Steel Corporation by a rising  vote. The convention then adjourned  for the day.         Eastern Baseball  American���Boston '6, Philadelphia 0;  second game, Boston 1, Philadelphia 7;  Milwaukee 6, Detroit 4; Chicago 17,  Cleveland 2.

ANOTHERt MINE HORROR.  NANAIMO, August 12.���[Special to The Tribune.]���A frightful explosion which,, it is feared,  has been attended with great loss  of life has been reported from  the Extension mines near Ladysmith. As near as can be learned the explosion occurred shortly  after the morning shift had gone  down into the mine, and although there are all sorts of wild,  rumors afloat as to tlie loss of  life, nothing authentic has as yet  been received. Reports so far  received are to the effect that one  body has beenrrecovered and that  there are upwards of 50 miners  yet to be accounted for. With  the recollection of the Cumberland horror still fresh in the public mind, there! is apparently no  limit set to the; disaster wrought  by the explosion, but there is as  yet very little ne-,v& irom which  to gather anything but a very  hazy idea as to the cause or effect of the disaster. Latest reports from Ladysmith are to the  effect that relief parties were at  work endeavoring to reach the  * imprisoned miners.   The officials   *  * of the mine.are responsible for   *  * the report that great damage has   *  ���*!���   been done to the' property, but at' *  * present all interest centers upon   *  * the efforts being made to get at   *  * the miners. The Extension mines   *  * are owned by premier Dunsmuir.   ���:-  * *  *** * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM   VARIOUS   QUARTERS   OF  THE  GLOBE.

HELENA, Mont.,' August 12.���Full to  the brim with Helena firewater and in  a nude-condition, Antone Pasco, a half-  breed Flathead Indian, went on the warpath at the Montana Central depot last  evening, and, pursued by a score of male  and female enemies, fought bravely until he was captured and placed in the  city jail" by palefaces.   'Pasco was  released August 3d: from the county jail,  where he had been under sentence" for  selling whisky to the Flathead Indians:  Early yesterday afternoon  Pasco commenced to imbibe freely and by 5 o'clock  had about as  much  as  he could  hold  and still navigate. Then, imagining that  he was being surrounded, he rushed up  to the top of one of the largest^ rock  piles near the'depot and began to whoop  and howl and call his enemies to the'attack.   Entirely divesting himself of his,  clothing, with the exception of his shoes,  and  using rocks   for  ammunition,   he  fought long and  hard.    He then went  to Capitol hill, where, however, his foes  were not imaginary, for a pitched battle ensued.

Delegate Govan of New York offered a  A Slight Error.  CHICAGO, August 12.���The Record-  Herald says: The George H. Phillips  Company has found itself better off by  $134,000 than it thought by the discovery of two errors in the books, found  since the firm suspended business. One  was an error of an even $100,000. Tlie  firm deposited in the bank $133,000 in  cash, for which it received credit by the  bank, but which appeared on the books  of the firm as a deposit of $33,000. Another mistake of the bookkeeper was  the failure to credit tlie firm with $34,000  of warehouse receipts deposited in the  bank early in April. The deposit of  these receipts was the same as a deposit  of cash, and the failure to account for  them caused a reduction in the working  capital of the firm by that amount. A  statement will be made today by Mr.  Phillips of the assets of the firm and it  is probable that the firm, reorganized,  will resume business Tuesday.

With Mrs. Suydam they were invited  ^to-be=the-guests^of=Mr.^andJMrs.=Samuel^  Verplanck. Mrs. Verplanck's cousin.  Miss Laura Rankin of Newburg, called  during the afternoon and the five formed a riding party. They set out to visit  Mr. Verplanck's farm at Stoneykill. On  their return, when near the Brinchoff  estate, half a mile above Fishkill Landing, the occupants of the carriage hoard  a loud report. In another moment Miss  Rankin said there was a tingling sensation on her neck. Placing her hand to  the spot she noticed it bleeding. As the  party were commenting on the strangeness of the incident, there was a second  loud report. In a moment Mr. Verplanck, who was driving, shouted "I  havo been shot." The party hurried the  horses home. Dr. George T. Williams  wits summoned and rendered medical aid  to Mr. Verplanck. Ho probed in the left  shoulder for the bullet, but without  success. Mr. Verplanck's condition is  critical. The police are investigating  tho matter;   The Ubiquitious Blondin.  UTICA, N. Y.. August 12��� Tho tramp  arrested at Rich field Springs this morning bears a striking resemblance to the  much-wanted Blondin. He is very bow-  legged, swarthy complexion, has high  cheek bones and tattoo marks on the  left arm. He lacks, however, the emblem of a schooner tattooed on the  left arm which the Boston police say  was a distinguishing mark on Blondin.  The tattooed figures on the arm of the  arrested man represent an anchor and  the Initial of the name Blondin. Should  there be some error in the rendering of  tho word "schooner" in the telegram re-,  ceived from Boston, the man may yet  prove to be the much-wanted slayer of  his wife.    Kew Freight Carrier.  SYRACUSE, N. Y., August 12.���The  scheme of organizing a company to carry freight over the great lakes was completed today in this city and it will be  at once incorporated in New Jersey. The  now company will be a $2,500,000 corporation and will be known as the National Transportation Company. Contracts for tho fleet of vessels have been  let to the American Shipbuilding Company and they are to have a capacity of  27,000 tons. The contract calls for their  completion on March 15, 1902.  /CHICAGO, August 12.���Today's international, yacht race between the Detroit  Boat Club's Cadillac and the Royal Can-  radian   Yacht  Club's   Invader   is   to-be-  sailed nine miles'to windward and return.   Owing to the change* in the wind  during Saturday's triangular race, which  thwarted the judges' wishes to have one  leg sailed to windward, they announced  this  morning, that  if   such   a  change-  should come during the beat to windward-today, the; judges' boat would signal the racing, yachts accordingly of tho  change of the1 course.    Yachtsmen  do  not understand how this can be done  if the rival boats should have split tacks  without doing an injury to one or the  other.-   The 'judges announced that the;  Cadillac might increase its jib by nearly*  100 square feet and lengthen its spinnaker nearly four, and a half feet.    This  caused quite a commotion.   It is argued  that the advantages thus gained make^it  almost   certain "the   Cadillac   will   win  three   races,   and    though    commodore'  Gooderham -merely   expressed   surprise  when told of the decision,* some of the  other Canadian yachtsmen are more free  of speech and criticize the work of measurer Cothroll.    The officials have given  out a set of measurements making each  boat exactly 35-foot racing lengths. The  time of starting today's race, the stai t-  ing an��l finishing point and all the preparatory  signals  will  be  the  same as.  on Saturday. *  CHICAGO, August 12.���In a slight  weather run, a reach out and back, the  Canadian Invader today won the second  of the races for the Canada's cup. She  had the Cadillac beaten at every point  of the compass. On tho run out with  a four to seven knot east northeast *  breeze sweeping their port quarters the  Invader led from one to two miles at  times, rounding the buoy, .nine miles  out, a mile ahead of her pursuer. Botli  broke out their balloon jibs on the home  stretch and the sturdy Detioiter gained  for a time. During the last four miles  the Cadillac took in her balloon and  broke.out the spinnaker. The special  effect of this change was shown in the  faster footing, but the race was already  won and the Cadillac came in nearly a  mile to the bad. Following were the,,  bulletins issued:  11:15 a. m.���The breeze is 2 1-2 knots.  The Invader has increased about 60  yards.  11:20 a. m.���The Cadillac is footing'  a trifle speedier. The Invader's preeminent ability to run into the wind is  taking and she is 100 yards to windward of the defender. ,  12:15 p. m.���The Invader is footing  like a greyhound and leading the defender by three-quarters of a mile.  12:30 p. m.���The In\ader has increased hor lead to a good mile or mere.  The wind is blowing 7 or S knots.  12:50 p. m.���The Invader is now leading by two miles and intends to make a  short_reach to round tho turning buoy.   "Barfing acciclents she will turn the buoy  with a comfortable lead.  12:55 p. m.���The Cadillac has gained  a little, possibly half a mile.  12:58 p. m.���The Invader is within a  mile and a half of the finish.  ��� The Invader turned tho buoy at 12:59  and broke out her spinnaker and balloon jib for the home run. The Cadillac  turned at 1:04 p. m.  The Invader won, crossing the line at  2:08:30. The Cadillac crossed 5 minutes and 50 seconds later.  The official time of rounding the outer  mark was: Invader. 12:58:35;" Cadillac,  1:03:02; finish, invader, 2:08:05; Cadillac 2:11:22.   Columbia Wjr.B in Time Allowance.  BATEMAN'S POINT, R. I., August 12.  ���The Constitution and Columbia start-  oil today on another CO-mile race over  the racing course of this point. The  Constitution got the better of the start,  crossing nearly half a minute ahead of  the Columbia. The start as seen from  tho shore was as follows: Constitution,  12:00:10; Columbia, 12:00:25.  The Columbia crossed the finish line  at 4:20:3S. less than a minute behind  the Constitution, and has won the race  on time allowance. The Constitution  crossed the finish line at 4:25:40. As  the yachts have not been measured recently, tho time which tlie Constitution  allows the Columbia is not known, but  it is probably something over a minute.  NEWPORT, R. I., August 12.���The  Constitution covered the triangular  course of 30 miles today in 33 seconds  less time than the Columbia. The champion of '99, however, wins the race on  time allowance by about 30 seconds. No  corrected time can bo given, as the boats  have not yet been remeasured, as required. In previous races the Constitution had allowed the Columbia 1 minute and 17 seconds. What the change  in measurement the new rig of the Constitution has made is unknown, but it is  estimated that she now allows the old  boat only a few seconds less time, if  any. The finish today was-a noteworthy  and exciting feature of the contest.  When within a mile of tho line the Constitution made a short tack that undoubtedly lost her the race. The winners in the other classes were: Class-  G, yawls, Navahoc; class H, sloops, Virginia.  'B r ��1 mUHwUA.  THE TRIBUTE:  KELSOK, B.

" '  Progressive towns, like'Grand Forks  arid Nelson, willingly take upon themselves the burdens imposed by local  self-government. Grand Forks is raising' $8000, by the sale of debentures, to  "be expended in erecting a public school  "building. Nelson cheerfully met the government half way in the cost of a new  school building.

Ontario  stopped  exporting  saw logs  and decided to manufacture lumber, and  thus utilized her own resources in such  a way as to add thousands to her population and millions to her wealth.   Too  much   political   economy  is  responsible  for   any  disappointment  as  to the  results of' the census of 1901.    A nation  of debaters over the maxims of the late  lamented Adam Smith cau never achieve  ,the results which could have been worked out by the prompt application to all  our resources of that measure of tardy  common sense which has wrought such  a miracle in the Ontario lumber industry.    Canada has  been wrangling over  the fine points of political economy when  her  statesmen  should  have  been  utilizing her wealthof raw material in the  -way best calculated to provide the most  profitable > employment  to  the  greatest  number of workers.���Toronto Telegram.

Professional baseball as played at tbe  present time bas reached its acme of  scientific development.    Never since  I  I have played the game has there been a  time when I regarded the playing- rules  so fair to batters, fielders and pitchers  |as now, and If there was a legitimate  ['kick   coming"   I   probably   would   be  here,   telling   the   magnates   what   I  thought they ought to do.      ��  Of course, I refer to the playing code  il the American League and not to the  knodified rules of the National League,  tor under its system I do object, and*  Strongly, to the foul-strike rule. Perhaps  this is unusual for a pitcher, and I was  formerly loudest in my protest against  pe practice of .fouliug-off, in whicli Mc-  rraw is generally regarded the greatest  I general in the country. But, while we do  aot have a foul-strike rule in the Ameri-  |;an League, fouling-off is dying away.  This is because the umpires, backed up  [iy president Johnson, are not afraid of  osing theirvjobs, and do their duty in  his respect. Far be it from my intention to shower any praise upon the  American League umpires���except Can-  (illon and one other���for-there is one on  he staff, whose name I would not like  o mention in. a printed article, who  fould be guessing if a baseball, a foot-.  Iiall and a pumpkin were placed side;  >y side and he was told to pick out the  >aseball���but they have the nerve to  *ack up their decisions. a  The calling of a strike for every foul  lposes too much of a handicap upon  I.he batsman. It detracts from the interest of the game. What justice is there in  '.ailing a strike0 on a man who hits a  jalljust a few inches outside the foul  lhe? The object of the.rule to prevent  O.uling-off can be accomplished "by the  impire. Our umpires use judgment, and  hey: have effectually stopped the.prac-  'ice. Most anyone who understands  (baseball can tell when a batsman is trying this trick.  If a clever batsman has three balls  |and no strikes, or even,three balls and  -me strike and the next ball is good but  Igoes; foul,'it's a pretty safe wager he  Fdoes it purposely. If it is a bad ball  [he probably is trying to hit it. But,if  f a rpoor batsman does the same trick the  chances are his intention is good.. That's  where the umpire's judgment comes in.  j* And as a matter'of-fact there are few  W batsmen who can foul-off a ball. McGr.aw  f, can .do so. So Lean one or two on our  L team, but it is the exception rather than  ' the rule. Good umpiring win dispose of  the fouling-off proposition, and'the reason for the rule is thus taken away.  ' That is the one objection I. would make  ^to the National League m'.'es, ���-which  have not been adopted by illege teams  j or by many minor leagues.  There is one rule in the Natfbial  I League .list, but not in the America ii,.  except by personal order of president  rl��Johnson, of which I heartily approve.  TThat is playing the catcher up behind  [the bat alb the time. It brings the play  tight up to the plate for 'he spectatcrs,  md the time lost in a gain** v, ith the  ^catcher^playing���bac.'c^in^cons^dovabler  Concentrating the game beforo tin.- eyes  d�� the spectator is dosiraDle. Moreover,  tt steadies the pitchers, especially the  ���-ounger fellows who are just breaking  [into fast company.  There was some talk last winter of  Abolishing the bunt.   I think that would  fee the greatest mistake that uould possibly happen.   I once played under such  kiles.   Before I poinedthe Chicago club,  jn  1893,  the California League p'ayed  Ivith the bunt tabooed.   TJie league there  Ivas- not"under the National agreement  lind.could play any way they chose!   As  Ci result the games were lacking in spice  ���nd- excitement..  The laying down of a  |>unt either with the intention of beating it out or of advancing a runner is  ttne iof the prettiest features of the game.  H|t would not be fair to take away this  {.kill from men who have practiced six  seven years in perfecting this feat,  ft would place the mechanical batters at  premium���the fellows who just stand  Ip at the plate and slug at the ball. Sci-  ntiflc hitters like Willie Keeler, .lones,  nd others, the most popular fellows in  ie game, would be outshadowed by  :iose who could clout the ball and noth-  ig else. Bunt hits hurry tlie opposing  (elders, keep the. play close to the spec-  Ittors, and give 'the opposing team  nances to make errors from the very  ict that they must be fielded fast���and  iveL you  ever .noticed   that  *i crowd  (���ally enjoys errors by an opposing team  iore than hits by its own men? It  ives them a chance to jeer and) roast  ie other fellows���and is withal a prct-  feature of the game, with science and  [���ains paramount to mere mechanical  jility.  The abolition of the bunt hit would  ���obably affect, ��� too, those hits which  ���e really pushes past the pitcher or in-  ah opening.    With a man on first or  Icond,. the scientific batsman will try  find out which baseman is intending  cover the second bag*.    Then he en-  fcavors to push the ball toward that  irening rather than swing and take a  lance.   This is scientific play.   It would  affected by a bunt rule.  (Three strikes and four balls appears  tout the proper ratio as between the  itsmen and the pitchers. Other schemes  ive been tried and abandoned. Six  ills and three strikes was once the rule,  iter five balls and three strikes held J  Robt. Kllgour,  Vice-President.  London Office, 00 Lombard Street, El. O.

'/  Digressing from the subject of rules,  perhaps the fans will be interested in  knowing that the members of the White  Stockings team believe Chicago will win  the championship this year. We have  not a, strong batting team, but a team  which scores a great many runs on a  few hits.���Clark Griffith (formerly of  Tacoma) in the New York World.  Another Negro Philosopher.  CIRCLE VILLE, O., jYugust li:���The Rev.  J. Allen Viney,- colored pastor of the A.  M. ID. church here, declared in a sermon  tonight that the temperature of heaven  is S2G degrees above zero, -quoting the bible  to support his assertion. Here aro some of  the thiays said by Mr. Viney, who may ba  regarded as the successor of the Rev. .M.v.-  Jasper, tho rioted "The Sun Do Move" pulpit orator of Richmond, Va.  "The millennium does not begin until the  second coming: of Christ. Ho will" be on  earth 1000 years and will find no opposition in preaching the.gospel. During this  period Satan will be chained in the bottomless pit. People, good^mon or women,  working in the fields or in the mill, will be  caught up and taken from sight. Your w.-fo  may be sitting at the table with you, or  sweeping a room, or washing, but as quick-'  l.y as you could wink she will be gone and  nothing left except hor clothes. "When lire  devil is bound in the bottomless pit a host  of good workers will pass over, the" earth  preaching the gospel. Then McKinley will  be put- down, emperor*. William will be  ousted, king Edward will be thrown from  his throne, warships will be-".destroyed,  swords hammered into ploughshares, theatres closed and-all shops burst up. "When  the millennium ends a short season is to  begin, inaugurated by the advent of Satan  and terminate by the judgment day. This  is really lhe aftcrglow of the millenitim,  because even then the world will still be  at peace. "Yet there remain the good and  the evil, or rather the sanctified'and those  not justified. All men. will be tempted, but  I he: sons of Ham, who is the father of the  negroes, will be tempted first.-Of Noah's  three sons; Sheni, Ham arid Japhet, Ham  was the servant by the heavenly will, and  his descendants will always -be servants  as long as ho wills. Negroes/needn't kick  about cleaning spittoons. They'll have to  do it. But. when satan tries to drag them  into, his-, works'." they won't have any use  for him. Then he will go to tlie children of  Shenv who are the Mongolians, American  Indians and< Esquimaux. They have always rebelled against chains, and tyranny,  and' will tell him they don't believe in  chains. Finally, satan will tempt the white  mon. Japhet's children, who Were made to  bo the nobility of the earth, to have the  highest things, lands, wealth, ruling, arts,  sciences and power.. They will throw down  religion,'fight and wage wars. Fire will fall  on the armies of satan, killing them. It  will take the white men seven months to  bury those", armies.' Then will commence  the heavenly age, after the day of judgment, when satan's followers are all destroyed. There will be.no night. The moon  will equal the sun. The sun will be sevenfold as the light of soven days. You cannot  separate light and'heat. Therefore the heat  will be seven times as great. The other  day the thermometer registered US degrees.

High  up  in  the  Swiss Alps  the  mountain called the Rocher de Ciusette Is about  to   topple .over   into   the   busy   valley   of  Travers. The valley of Travers lies In the  Jura mountains, and through it runs the  Jura ��� Simplon  railway.   Down  its  narrow  gorge  also  rushes   the  river  le   Reuse,  a  small stream in winter, but a swollen torrent when 'the' warm spring sunshine begins to melt the mountain snows. The valley is just about wide enough for the river  and   the  railroad  in  some  places,  and  in  others' it  opens  out  so  that  small  cities  lie in the embrace of the hills and straggle  up their sides. Here and there are hotels  much   patronized   by   tourists,   and   many  schools for girls are scattered through the  valley.   Into  this  valley may fall  at any  time a great mass of the mountain, estimated at 500,000 cubic yards of rock. Close  to the foot of the mountain lie the quaint  little cities of Noirague, Le Feuil, Ciusette  and Champ du Moulin, which will be burled  deep  when  the  mountain  falls,  and it is  only a question of time when it does fall.  Experts, who have examined the mountain  declare that It cannot remain much longer  in  the present "state of unstable equilibrium."  Just when  the mountain will  fall  the   scientists   are   unable   to   say.   Dry  .'weather; will ' tend _ to   retard   the   catastrophe; wet weather will hasten it. It will  pro.bably   go    down    soon*���perhaps   while  these lines are being read the great landslide may be  taking place.  AVhen it does  not only will the valley be filled with the  debris and much valuable property be destroyed���and  probably  lives   lost���but  the  river  Reuse" choked   up.   The  river,  being  in  its spring fullness, Will spread out its  waters, flooding the upper part of the valley and causing much damage. The stopping  of  the- flow  of  the  Reuse  will   also  cause much hardship to the cities of Neuf-  chatel, and La Chaux de Fonds, for from  this stream these cities draw a portion of  their water   supply.- and. it   supplies   the  power which runs the; electric light plants  for   these  cities,  as  it-also   does   for  the  lighting of the villages of the valley. There  is much, uneasiness throughout the valley,  and   the   mothers   of   daughters   at   the  schools for girls, mostly patronized by the  Germans,  have  been  writing  in  a  panic,  directing that their children be sent home  at once. On the-other hand, the hotels of  Noirague and Champ du Moulin are filled  with tourists, who want to be on the spot  when the catastrophe takes place, so that  they can get a good,view of it.

For some time it has* been suspieioned that  the cily by-law wliich prohibits the shaving of patrons on Sunday was not being  lived up to by all the arlists and a watch  was kept on the barber shop run by Robert McMahon. j\s a result of this watch  word was passed to the city police that if  they would call at the shop in question  they would probably lind Hint the by-law-  was being violated. The police called and  as a result McMahon will appear in the  police court this morning in order to determine whether he was violating the bylaw Pi*  ��ot,  Appearances are  said  to  be  against him, but this in itself does not  prove that he is guilty, and It is hard to  say what might happen to this particular  by-law if it is attacked, but it would differ from most* city by-laws if it were not  knocked out.  Two marriage-licenses were issued from  the Nelson office yesterday.

AVhen the sheriff got into the premises  there were upwards of a dozen of China-.  men there, and they sought to discuss the  matter with him jointly and severally. The  excitement ran high for a time, but the  sheriff linally brought matters to a head  by seizing Hie judgment debtor's' stock.

The  area-, bf Cottonwood lake is 15 acres and  the city engineer estimates that for every  foot the level of tho lake is raised its storage capacity will be increased by five million gallons. In addition to its natural feed  tho lake receives the water which is flumod  from Whitewater creek. This stream at its  lowest stage carries 350 miners' inches of  water, whicli in the 24 hours is said to be  equal to six million gallons.-'lt is the purposo of the city to raise the level of tho  lake about five inches, which shold result  In securing an adequate water supply for  all purposes for some time. The present  flume to Whitewater creek has a carrying  capacity of 10(10 minors' inches, and as the  city has a water right to the waters of  Clearwater creek as well as Whitewater-  creek, it will not be difficult to divert all  that may be necessary should the present  supply 'prove inadequate.

Provlncia' constable Barnes is in very  had odor with the' people of Fernie at present by reason of the steps which he and  his associate police officers took on Friday to stamp out the illegal selling of  liquor. Tho police assert that there has  been more or less illegal selling of liquor  in the neighborhood and on Friday they  decided to set a trap for J. W. Livers, a  druggist who Is opening up a drug store at  Morrisscy. One of the police oflicers approached Livers and told him ho was in a  bad way on account of a spree and would  like to get something which would fix horn  up. The druggist gave him a dose of a  preparation known as Wambole's laxative  compound in a six ounce nottle of whisky.  The result that ho was arrested upon a  warrant, handcuffed and brought; into Fernie, where he was locked up. Livers was  formerly in tlie drug business 4at Kaslo  and it happened that a couple qf men whom  he knew were at Fernie when he was  brought in. The result was that they suc-  coeded in having the prisoner arraigned at  once before W. R. Ross, stipendiary magistrate. Ho entered a plea of not guilty,  and was at once admitted to bail, W. XV.  Tuttle being accepted as surety in the sum  of. $100 and the prisoner in the sum of $100.  Livers Is a certilicated member of the pharmaceutical asociation of the province ans  as such claims that he was within the law  in selling the six ounce preparation which  he did to the officer, as it was represented  to him that it was for medicinal purposes,  and in view of the prisoner's age and tho  fact that he was established in business  the general opoinion is that the police officers wero unnecessarily severe in the measures which thoy adopted to bring; l|im to  justice. It is likely tliat more \yl\\ be heard  of the matter when.the case against divers  is disposed of.  A Warning to Trespassers.  KOK.jS.NEE CREEK RANCH, August 9.  ���To the Editor of The Tribune: Would you  kindly allow me, through your columns,  to irrform the public generally, and more  cs-pecially that portion of it which patronizes the frequent excursions to the Knights  of Pythias grounds at the mouth of Kokanee crock,, that neither my grounds nor  my house are public property; for there  seems to be an impression to the contrary.  It is not many weeks since I requested  somo would-be sportsmen, whom I caught  in the act, not to climb my fences, nor  cross my orchard or ploughed.land, but to  confine themselves to tlie roads and trails  which are fairly numerous, and to shut the  gates after them; They first began to argue  the point and ended by becoming abusive.  Yesterday (Thursday,'' the Sth) thero was  another* excursion, and "during the , afternoon while we were all absent from home,  two females (I' am sorry I cannot write  "ladies") came over to this place, and imposing upon tlie Chinaman in charge, and  upon one of my employees, by passing  themselves off as friends of mine, gained  admittance to my house, where they satisfied their proverbial female curiosity by  Poking about into all the rooms, upstairs  as well as down, and then regaled themselves' with a little music. On inquiry I  have learned their nam'fc, ai.d I assure  you, sir, they are perfect strangers to me.  I have the pleasur- of being aequainred  I have tho pleasure of being acquainted  with a lady'of the same name, but 1 happened to be enjoying her society.elsewhere  at the time, it may be just as well to state  here that any repitltion of this most unladylike and most grossly impertinent conduct, by cruller, sex, will be reported to the  police and the offending parties handed  over to them to be dealt with as common  vagabonds and suspicious- characters, or  worse.
