MINOR MINING MATTERS.
The Monitor Iron Co. will make an

River mine, is to work the Fairbanks

Three twenty-one ton cars of ore were
shipped from the Shcldcn A Shafer mine
on Monday. The cargo it is said goes to

in good form and it is thought that tho
true vein will bo encountered before lotig.
Exploration on tho south-east quar

lister are showing up well, and Mr. Hoi
lister is quite certain that ho ha a fine
body of ore, and from sample seen it
, doc certainly look that way. Tho op
tion join tho Parks and Tohin mine,
but tho new find does not in tho leant
resemble tho material taken from that
mine, it lsing evident that two bodies of
ore exist there.
Yery little movement in ore has taken
place during tho week, and hardly any
noteworthy Hales are reported. Inquir
ies, on the other hand, have Urn lively
and mainly for Bessemer ores, rich in iron
and low in phosphorus. One firm was
offered its own price for a round quanti
ty of sixty-three jmt cent, ore, with 0.2
or lens of phosphorus. VcsMels have Urn
more plentiful during tho past 'few' days
than for two months past, but rates are
stiffer than ever. Ashland cargoes having
been chartered at $2.40, an advance of
ten cents. Both furnncemen and ore pro
ducers are a trifle shy of the market, the
former exccting lower quotation which
are not apt to Ik conceded by the pro
ducers. Tho Fall buying is exiected to

The Crystal Falls and Florence cIuIjh
crossed willows hero last Saturday and a
good game was the result, the score at
the finish standing thirty to thirteen in
favor of the home team; not very hard
drawn, but still every tally made was
worked for. The game was called
shortly niter two o'clock' with Dr. P. C.
Hutts, of Mastodon, us umpire. Tho
visitors went to bat and only succeeded
in getting in two tallies when the third
man went out. Our boys graspel the
willows and "got onto" the pitcher and
at the completion of tho last hall of tho
first had six tallies, but they had Ut
work for them. Tho game leing young
the visitor retained their good spirits
and were white-washed as the saying is.
Then when our boys went to bat the vis
itors gave them a lively tussle, and
would have given them only u goose egg,
had it not lieen for tho mark scored by
(jodshall. The home team now had the
lead and held it to the end of the game.
Following is the
SCORE DY INNINGS:
Crvstal Fall C 1 8 0 0 4 f 0 30
Florence 2 0 3 1 1 2 0 0 413
It will lw remembered that the Florence
club defeated our lys in a game at Flor
ence on tho afternoon of Aug. 21, twenty
five to eleven, and it is thought that the
tho Florence boys had an idea of doing
the same thing up here, but for reasons
best known to themselves did not. Ap
pended is the list of the resjcctivc
teams, tho figures standing opposite tho
names indicating the tallies made:

The most friendly-foiling Dilated . be
tween the two clulw and all present dur
ing the game. Not a voice was rained in
boistrous blufllng. A good play was
loudly applauded whenever scored by
either club. Tho difference U'tween tho
condition of affairs here nnd at Norway
on a previous occasion, were very strik
ing in the extreme. The cople of Crystal
Falls know how to entertain visitors and
do all they can to make their stay as
pleasant as possible. Norway t-hould
take a lesson or two in this direction.
A rango league, to Isj coniK)il of six
cluls, and to Include Florence, Mastodon,
Crystal Falls, Iron Kiver, Iron Mountain,
and Norway, is talked of for next season.
There is excellent base ball material in
all tho towns named nnd the league pro
ject is not onlydcsirnble,butpracticablc.
The Florenco club A comjoed of
nothing but thorough gentlemen and
Invso ball players. Tho fielding was a
feature of tho Saturday game and nil
they lack to lw a very strong , team is,
better batting, though their present batt
ing gives great promise of soon becoming
a strong one.

Editor The Diamond Diull: "There
i something wrong ats)ut our telegraph
office," said a bystander tho other day.
Message are recieved at the station and
no effort is made to. deliver or find the
ferson to whom they are sent, nnd they
are hung un on a hook for days and
even weeks in some cases, Ik fore reaching
their destination. .' This is not as it should
Ik?. An ojx-rntor employed by the com
pany Is supposed to 4o that messages
are promptly delivered, ami in case the
Ierson can not lie found they should 1h
placed in the nost office. There hasljccn
no end of negligence at this office, and
complaints are heard every day and
some of our citirens nre talking of send
ing a etition to headquarters asking for
letter management of tho telegraph office
nnd it is right that they should do so.
A petition 'would get the signature of
two-thirds of tho business men in town
and I for one think the sooner it i done
