Renton, Ravensdale, and Black Diamond did not play league games last Sunday because they would not agree to play each other owing to the rivalry which exists between them. These towns are unfortunately limited to playing Seattle teams or play among themselves and as the Seattle aggregation have their hands full making the rounds, the teams from the south district are occasionally without games.

July Fourth was a big day for Black Diamond coal and Diamond Briquets at Sedro-Woolley. On that occasion W.E. Ropes of Ropes Transfer carried off first prize in the patriotic parade with the float shown in the above engraving. Mr. Ropes has been operating in Sedro-Woolley for 14 years and he handles Pacific Coast Coal Company coals exclusively.

Some fine specimens of Black Diamond lump coal were arranged along the top of the float just under the slogan, “Heat That’s Cheap,” while along the sides appeared the word “Briquets,” spelled out with genuine Diamond Briquets themselves.

On the same day in Everett the Pacific Coast Coal Company agency there also won first prize with a beautifully decorated float, a reproduction of which appears elsewhere in this issue of the Bulletin. (more…)

With the arrival of hot summer weather attention is again drawn to the fact that there are many residents of Black Diamond who have no effective means of disposing of garbage. At the last Mine Council meeting a move was instituted to improve the sanitary condition of the camp by asking everybody to provide themselves with garbage cans.

The company will provide a means for regularly disposing of all garbage deposited in cans, free of cost, and in order to make the entire camp fully sanitary it is absolutely necessary that every house be equipped with the proper type of garbage can. These may be obtained through the company store, and in case they are not installed promptly, steps will be taken to compel every resident to so equip his place.

At both Newcastle and Burnett every house is equipped with a garbage can and the menace of typhoid and contagion thereby greatly minimized. (more…)

Fourth of July celebrations in Black Diamond are always started off with a parade. This picture shows the parade of last year as it left the starting point in front of the hotel for the procession to the Ball Park. The citizens of the camp vie with one another in striving to attain perfection in patriotically decorated floats and cars. This year the usual parade will be a feature of the day.

Hospitality in unbounded measure is the welcome which will be extended all who participate in the Fourth of July celebration at Black Diamond. Particular emphasis is being laid upon the fact that the children are to be given first attention, free ice cream and refreshments having been provided for every child. (more…)

Respect for the flag is one of the first marks of patriotism. The man who can talk the loudest about the duties of citizenship often forgets to uncover when the flag goes marching by, or sits with a bored expression on his face when the national anthem is played. It is not for the flag itself, but rather for what it stands, that every true American owes due homage and respect to its starry folds.

Salute the flag! Stand at attention to the strains of The Star Spangled Banner! For thus is patriotism fostered in the youth of our land and respect for law and order maintained. (more…)
