Kaslo's New Gold-Copper Finds Taken
by Hall Mines for $65,000.
Early yesterday morning a deal was
completed whereby tho now gold-copper finds just southwest of town, wore
bonded to the Hull Minos Co. of Nelson for 160,000. The properties bonded
are tho True LUue aud Peacock, owned
by W. A. Stephensjn and William J.
Frazer. The terms which were made
of publio record yesterday are: $500
down; $1,000 August 18) $5,000 September i:i; $10,000 December 13; $10,000
March 13, 1800; $10,000 June 13; $10,000
September 13; $10,000 December 13;
and $8,500 on March 13, 1!K>0. All of
thoso dates are "on or before."
The claims were located slightly
over a year ago. The lirst assessment
work recently completed ns heretofore
noted, showed n very rich prospect.
Tho development is, however, sn slight
as to not justify heavy down payments.
A force of ten men is to bo placed at
work on the trail tomorrow morning
and development will be pushed rapidly, W. 17 Hodder, who Is interested
in adjoining claims, acted for the vendors and F. G, Proctor for the buyers.

THE poet to tlie coutrary, notwithstanding, there are occasions when "it might have been"
are Joyful words. Most men, upon
meeting again in aftor year* their tlrst
loves, realize this, and offer up prayers
of thankslglvlng.
It was so with Ilurlburt.
In the early days ot the Pacific const.
Hurlburt was Stationed at San Diego.
It wns a picturesque little town. Its
streets were not much more than cow*
paths, and Its houses were mostly of
the good old pattern���adobes, one story
high, and built around a patio. In such
a house as this lived Mnnuela Lopez.
and ln one of the cow-path streets
Hurlburt first met her. It was upon a
Sunday. Hurlburt had Just come from
Inspection, and was on his way to dinner with friends in town. He still
wore his regimentals, and was a very I
gorgeous sight Indeed. He was also
tall, and yellow-haired, and blue-eyed��� |
quite the figure to strike the fancy of
a pretty little Mexican girl who was
Coming home from mass.
She  had  read  no books  that could |
have told her that lt was the accepted
thing to do; she had probably never
given    such    subjects    a    moment's i
thought; bnt wheu the mind of a child ]
becomes the mind of a woman. It Is
at oue bound, not by slow degrees. Inspiration  struck  full  upon   Manueln's
brain,  and she dropped   her    rosary, j
From  which  It  may  be  Inferred  that j
the love of the fathers and the wisdom [
of ages has tyiugbt woman nothing new
In affairs of the heart.   The Impulse of
the lntrlgMite and of the child of na-
lure are^sfe same.
Hurlburt, of course, was close to
Manuela when the rosary dropped, He
returned It to her. If she had not been
with a servant, he might have spoken.
As lt was, he observed more narrowly,
what he had been observing for some
moments as he approached, that she
was graceful and pretty. Then he raised his helmet and passed on.
You can count upou auy one but the
typical .Anglo-Saxon. You expect men
of Latin and Slav races to make fools
of themselves. But the Anglo-Saxon
ts such a thoroughly logical, reasonable, clear-headed person that the liot- i
torn of your universe drops out when
he deviates from the path of common
Sense, And when he does, lt Is never
a mere digression. He goes, a flaming
comet, whirling through space, and
carrying all your stellar system of
plans and beliefs before him. The last
thing any one would have expected of
a big, quiet, rational youth, such as
was Hurlburt, was that he should wax
romantic over a Street meeting with
an Immature ruse to attract his attention. Nevertheless, that same day, after luncheon, he said to his host, as
they sat smoking under the ramada,
"Who lives In the house on the next
street, where the two mocking-bird
cages hang on the wall?"
"You must be more explicit," his host
said; "there are a number of houses
on the next street, and one and all have
"Yes," said Hurlburt: "but there Is a
hedge of red and white geranium lu
front of It."
"I saw you meet her," the civilian
told him; "her name la Ix>pe_���Monu-
ela. I think."
Hurlburt became very rod. When
your phlegmatic man grows embarrassed he ls badly embarrassed. It was
some time before he regained speech
and came floundering out of the sea of
���Hence. Wheu he did, he changed the
Not tbat he abandoned the cause.
Far from It. It took him two weeks,
bnt be got himself Introduced to Senor
Lopez, and bad then taken tu call upon
him. Tlie senor was a well-educated
man, and the most hospitable of his
hospitable race. He made Hurlburt
free of the house at once, and showed
him everything lt contained, save only
"You must come agnln, often." he
said, aa they parted. Hurlburt replied
that he would, and weut again In three
days. Neither did he see his lady of the
rosary upon this occasion. He addressed himself to Senora Lopez, who was
handsome and well preserved.
"You have a daughter, have you not
senora ?"
Senora Lopez understood only Just so
much English as she chose. She did not
choose to understand tt Is. She turned
her soft eyes upon her husband, and
be answered for her.
"We have a daughter," he said, "but
���he is very young."
Hurlburt understood that he bad offended a seml-orlental prejudice.
It having thus been made obvious to
Mm that Manuela would not be produced by her parents, he went to an
early mass at tbe church, met her, .and
Introduced himself. It chanced that
she was alone.
"May I walk home with yon. senor-
lUi't" he said. "I have the pleasure of
knowing your father."
"Yes, sir," said Manuela.
It whs but a few hundred yrf-rds to
her home, but he made the most of his
time. .Manuela answered hlm In monosyllables and ralsed*her eyes but twice.
Hurlburt'. infatuation was complete.
Senor Lopez wa.s angry. He wa.s very
civil to the officer, but he sent tlie girl
to her room nt once.
"I met the senorlta at nui.ss." Hurlburt explained.
".Are you, then, a Catholic''" Inquired
tbe Mexican.
"No," said Hurlburt--and determined
to pursue the policy that sages who
know mrtlilng of mankind tell us 1�� In-
variably the best���"I went to the
church OH purpose to me<>t your (laughter. I saw her on the street tlie other
day"���he refrained lu a moment of diplomacy from speaking of the dropped
beads���"and I admired her very milch.
Tbat Is why 1 came to call upon you.
I thought 1 would see her openly tinder
her own roof. As I did not, I encountered her elsewhere. Now," said Hurlburt, leaning back In an easy pose that
did not meet with the punctilious Mexican's approval, "I should like to auk
you to l>e allowed to pay my court to
your daughter."
Senor Uipez made no objection to
the officer's suit, but he did object
to his fashion of advancing it. He In-
cased himself in perversity.
"My daughter, sir. Is too young."
He rose to his feet by way of suggesting that Hurlburt would do well
to take his leave. Hurlburt rose, too,
but not to go.
"May I ask her age, senor?"
"She Is sixteen years old."
"You have told me that you married
the senora when she was but fifteen."
"That was ln the old times. We do
uot do so auy more."
"But I will lie willing to wait for a
year. If Senorlta Mnnuela will love
"Sir, we will talk no more concerning this. My daughter Is too young to
be married, and I do not wish to give
her to an American"���which was not
In the least true. Up to then It had
been his plan to do so, but his obstinacy
was roused.
The result was oue that auy oue,
most of all a Mexican, should have foreseen. Hurlburt embarked upon au Intrigue. He sent notes to Manuela, and
got them from her In return. The notes
led to meetings by night. The meetings led to Infatuation. Warm Southern nights and a soft-eyed, soft-voiced
girl can work mischief within the mind
of a man. And a tall, blonde officer
saying the first words of love she hns
ever heard eau turn the head of any
The clandestine interviews continued
for several mouths. Then Hurlburt
made one last attempt at frankness. He
went to Senor Lopez again, and renewed his request to Is* permitted to pay
his daughter court. The senor had conceived an unreasonable and great dislike for hlm, and refused.
Whereupon Hurlburt arranged another meeting with Manuela. He began to
realize that they were lioth running terrible risks. Senor Lopes was quite
equal to kllllug oue of them If they
should be discovered. But he did not
suggest that to Manuela. Instead, be
asked: "Do sou love nie, chlqultaV"
"Yes, yes. Must 1 tell you so always?"
"Do you love me enough to leave
your home for me?"
"1 do not understand." The gentle
eyes looked Into his, perplexed.
"Will you marry me?"
"I would, bul how can 1?" she said.
"My father will not consent to It."
"Do you love rae enough to run away
from your father, to disobey hlm, and
go over to Mexico, across the border,
with me? We can lie married there,
and then come back."
Hurlburt was au Impassive, unemotional man, but his nerves were ii|K>n
a fearful tension as he waited for the
unswer of an Irresponsible child. She
appeared to consider, aud ended by
agreeing. Hurlburt was beside himself with happiness.
A week later they went across the
line and were married. They returned
Immediately, and had an Interview
with Senor Lopez. The Mexican was
enraged. Hurlburt, having obtained
what be wanted, was not Inclined to be
conciliatory, but Manuela and her
mother patched up a peace. Manuela
behaved oenutlfttlly, and Hurlburt waa
more enamored than ever. He took ber
back to bis home, and for three days
dreamed of a lifetime of bliss. Then
Manuela decided tbat she   bad   bad
enough of living on honeycomb, and
that she had tired of scented time.
With no explanations and no reason
save that she wanted to go, she went.
Her father, charmed with Hurlbtirt's
discomfiture, refused to make her return to bini, and guarded her closely.
Ilurlburt begged for one tlnnl Interview, and it was granted. He wns a
sorry sight, pale and haggard and self-
abasing. But Mnnuela was unmoved.
She stood meekly before hlm. her folded hands holding a rose, her father and
mother on either side of her. She was
not In the least unhappy, and no grief
had marred her pretllness.
"Manuela," said Hurlburt, "have yon
not changed your mind? Will you not
come home with me?"
She shook her bend.   "No." she said.
"Why not? Was I not kind to you?
Did I not love yon?"
"Yes, you were very kind. But I like
better lo be with my father."
It was useless to threaten, Implore,
or reason. Manuela was gently Stub-
born. She would never go luu-k to him;
she did not like Americans.
When Hurlburt finally went away, he
decided Hunt Ids heart was broken, He
thought of suicide. He could never
bear up under the disgrace, and It was
not so great as his wretchedness, This
frame of mind lusted for a year; then
be became resentful! then he obtained
a divorce; then he was ordered J_��'si.
and lt waa ten years before be retufcod
to the coast. He had Willi hlm his wife
���a woman or his own people, very
charming, very well suited to him lu
every way. She knew the story of his
first marriage, and she knew that,
whatever he might suy to the contrary,
he still regretted deep down in Ids heart
the sweet, soft Mexican wife of his
youth, of his season of dear liellefs and
Illusion*. The knowledge was the one
grief of her life. It threw a shadow of
sadness ovi-r her eyes. Hut she kept
It to herself, and for this iinfeinlnlne
virtue the gods, In due time, rewarded
They went one day, by ambulance
from Wilmington, where Hurlburt was
stationed, to Los Angeles. One of their
mules got lame, and they had to spend
the night at a roadside ranch, A crowd
of dirty Mexican children played
around the adobe; several yet dirtier
men lounged about the door; a fat, be*
shawled woman wnddled across the
yard; a yet more untidy one Welcomed
Her greasy face was still rather pretty and young, bnt she wits thick, and
heavy, ami stupid. When she looked
full at Hurlburt, she gave a little cry
that was more of a grunt.
"Come In; I will tell my husband,"
she said, and shuffled away with her
bore feet.
Hurlburt turned to his wife gravely.
"I am sorry to have brought you here,"
he said, "but it Is all we can do, tinlesn
you prefer to sleep In tbe ambulance
to-night.   That���woman was my wife."
"So I supposed." she said. She laid
her delicate hand on his arm. "Don't
let it trouble yon, dear. I do not mind."
she smiled Into his eyes, aud the shadow was forever gone from her own.���

In a New York police court the other
dny a prisoner was arraigned to answer a charge of larceny. The prosecuting witness wan a young woman,
who testified that as she was walking
nlong Broadway thosarlsoner at the Inir
suddenly stopped her, and, in the presence of a lnrge crowd of surprised spectators, opened her mouth nud took out
a set of false teeth, wlilch he put in his
liocket nnd ran away. "That's! right,
your honor," explained the accused
man. "This woman Is my wife. I married her three weeks ago. Of course,
I wanted her to make as good au appearance as possible ou thut occasion,
so I fitted her out with a set of teeth
Which cost me $0. She hns since left
me, however, and Is now skylarking
around and I'm afraid some one else
will fall In love with her nud steal her
from me. I thought the safest plan
would lie to take back my present of
those teeth, so that she wouldn't be
quite so attractive to the average man.
Of course If she will promise to live
with me again ns a good, loyal wife,
���heCan have the teeth back right now."
The court suggested a brief conference
between the Interested parties. A moment afterward the prosecution win
dropped and the case wa.s dismissed.
"But remember, Judge," said the husband, as the reconciled couple prepared
to leave, "if she doesn't behave properly I shall get those teeth again. She
may have 'em lu trust, that's all." And

There has been some idle talk In Kng
land about a war with Russia over China. It Is senseless because there Is no
adequate cause for fighting. Many
years ago England had a war with
China, ami obtained Hongkong, wliich
has been converted Into a center of
trade aud a naval station. Russia
without a war has secured in northern
China l'ort Arthur as a naval station,
uud Ta-llen-wun as a port of entry for
the new Siberian Railway. Russia baa
merely done what England had previously done. There can be no cause of
war. Kngland. moreover, has asked
that these ports shall remain open to
shipping under all flags on equal terms.
Russia has agreed that the ports of
Manchuria shall be free, or at l��ist
open to the world's commerce. When
the .Siberian Railway Is completed foreign commerce will not is* driven
away, but attracted. Business Interests will prevail. If England were to
Insist ttiMin lighting for the sake ol
maintaining her prestige ln the fill
Mast, it would be nn unequal battle ou
both sen and laud. The Russian Heel
might be destroyed In the Pacific, bul
Manchuria could not be occupied and
conquered without n laud campaign, lu
which the Kngllsh would be at a serious disadvantage. Russia, moreover,
would have other means of harassing
the English. Tlie north western frontier of India Is exposed at many points,
aud there are railways by Which Russian armies might be readily massed
within striking distance of Herat ot
Chltrnl. L'ughiuil hus nothing to gain
and much to lose from a war with Russia, she would have no European nllj
for a conflict equally dangerous and
unprofitable. Equally unlikely ls a win
between England and either Herman}
or France over the possession of nuvaJ
stations and ports on the Chinese sea

by Kngl.iiiil. she cannot reasonably object to the occupation of other port* for
similar purposes by rival powers; noi
will there be Just cause of war so long
as those new ports remain oiieu to all

Washington, June o.���Naval officers
shook their heads in the negutive this

effect that troops had been landed in force

reports were premature as to warrant tile
belief that, from their knowledge of the

Mobile, it would not la* possible for troop
ships to have arrived by this time on the
south coast of Cuba.
Tlie Resolute, reported yesterday to

Tbe constituency which bas bert o
fore included the present Slocan riding, has had experiences with Independent representation and Opposition
representations Neither has been satisfactory. .1. M. Kellle, better known
as "Let-her-l Icki r" Kellle, ran as an
Independent with Ooverntnent leanings. He wub elected, but never admitted to the caucuses of the Govern-

finally as with the Opposition. Even
then he was eyed by them not entirely
without suspicion, and his Influence
continued limited.
Nextcami 3. Fred Hume, ol Kelson,

purely as an Oppositionist, But hi:;
party carried so little weight with it
that beOOUld not accomplish anything
worth .peaking of except as he got it
through Government sonrces, Nol. being in sympathy with the ruling party,
his Influence, ol course, was light, and
he was unable consequently to Inaugurate and carry out plans that wero for
the good of his constituency to anything like the exteut that ho nji^lit
bave done if he bad been of tho Government party,
Of course the Government party has
had the magnanimity to see that positive injustice should nut be done to
this section of the Kootenay, notwithstanding that its efforts have been op-
poi from this riding for the past
sight; ( ars, Ho�� much better It would

yloclal cabinet, if a government supporter in returned from this riding,
who ia familiar wilh the mining interests tl t.i.o riding and the Province, ti
is a i ��� i, certainty that tho portfolio
of mliKJi and education will be separated and tho former offered to that
meml a ���.
Here then Is the choice: to continue
pracl ..illy without representation for
the n ;.;t four years, or lo elect a member who is in full sympathy with a
'Government that is sure to be returned
and who will doifbtless bo invited to a

Culm���The Story  in  Full.
Oil' Santiago de Cuba, June 3.���The
Merrimac had on board two tons of coal
when she was scuttled across the channel.
Lieutenant Hobson started on his daring errand nt :i o'clock this morning. The
Merrimac was lying to the westward.
Under cover of the clouds over the moon
she si ole toward the coast, made her way
to the cast ward, followed by a launch
from the Xew Vork with the following
crew on board: Naval Cadet .1. W. Powell of Oswego, X. Y.; P. K. Peterson.
coxwain; 11. Efaldford, apprentice of liie
flrst class; .1. Mullings, coal passer: G.
I.. Kussel!, machinist of the second class.
In tlie launch were bandages nnd appliances for the wounded.
Ilatterlo*  Turned   Loose.
Prom the crowded decks of tlie Xew
York nothing could be seen of the Mer-
rimac after she had got under the shadows of tlie hills. For half an hour of-
lieers and men strained their eyes peering
into tho gloom when suddenly, the Hash
of a gun streamed out from Morro castle
and then the Xew Vork knew the Mer-
riuiae was Hearing her end.
Tlie guns from the Spunish battery
opposite Morro castle answered quickly
Willi more Hashes and for about 20 minutes Hashes of lire seemed to leap across
tlie harbor entrance. Tlie flagship was
too far away to hear the reports and
when tlie firing ceased it wus judged thut
Hobson had blown up the Merrimac'. For
an hour the anxious watchers waited for
daylight. Hear Admiral Sampson and
Captain Chad wick were on-xnu biidge of
the Xew Vork throughout.
At 5 o'clock thin streams of smoke were
seen against the western shore quite close
to the Spanish battalia and strong glasses made out the launch of the Xew Vork
returning to the llagsliip. Scarcely hud
the small craft been sighted before a
puff of smoke issued from a buttery on
tlie western arm of the harbor and a shot
plunged far over tlie launch. Then for
15 minutes the big guns on the Coast kept
up un irregular lire on tlie little luiinca.
Had   <jone   I inh-r   the   Guna.
At 0:15 u. in. the launch came alongside tlie flagship but she did not have on
board any of the crew of the Merrimac.
Cadet Powell reported that he had been
unable to see any sign of tlie Merrimao's
crew. It developed that with great bravery the crew had gone right Under tlie
batteries and only returned when hope
of taking on board the crew of the Merrimac had lo be abandoned.
(ladet Powell also reported he had
clearly seen the Merrimao's must sticking
up just where Hobson Hoped to sink her,
north of tlie Kstrclla battery und well
pust the guns of Mono castle.
But of the heroes who had penned the
Spaniards in there was not a sound or a
sign. Rear Admiral Sampson said: "I
am pretty sure the attempt was quite successful. I hope all those brave fellows
are not captured."
Cadet Powell believed the torpedoes
previously fixed   aboard   the   Merrimac
were exploded as planned, us Lieutenant
Hobson was well up the harbor before the
Spaniards opened tire on the Merrimac,
How ii.iIin.iii  Sunk the Merriiune.
What actually happened on the Merrimac can best be judged from what Lieutenant Hobson said just before leaving
the llagsliip.
He suid: "I shall go right into the
harbor until about 40U yards pust. tlie
I'.stiella battery, which is behind Morro
custlc. I do uot think they can sink us
before 1 reach somewhere neur that point.
Tlie Merrimnc has 7000 buoyancy and I
shall keep lier full speed ahead. She can
make uliout 10 knots.
"When llic narrowest part of the channel is readied 1 shall put her helm hurd
aport stop her engines, drop the anchors,
open the sea connections, touch otf the
torpedoes and leuve the Merrimac a
wreck lying athwart the chunnel, which
is not as broad as the Merrimac is long.
There are 10 8-lnch Improvised torpedoes
below- the water line on the Mcrrimac's
port side. They are placed on her side
Against the bulkhends and vital spot*,
connected with each other by a wire under the ship's keel. Kuch torpedo contains H2 pounds of gunpowder. Karh tor-
pedo is also connected witli the bridge
nnd they should do thoir work in a minute and it will be quick work even if
done in a minute and a quarter.
"On deck there will be four men and
myself. In the engine room there will be
two other men. This is a total crew and
all of us will be in our underclothing,
with revolvers and ammunition in watertight packing strapped around our waists.
Forward there will be a man on deck and
around his waist will be a line, the other
end of the line being made fast to the
bridge on whieh I will stand. By Chat
man's side will be an ax. When I stop
the engine I will jerk the cord and will
thus give the signal.to cut the lashing
which will cut the forward anchor. He
will then jump overboard and swim to the
four-cared dingy which we shall tow
astern. The dingy is full of life buoys
and is Unsinkable. In it are rifles. It is
to be held by two ropes one made fast
at her bow and one at her stern.   The
tirst man to reach her will liuiil in the
tow line and pull the dingy out to starboard. The next to leave Unship are the rest of tlie crew. The
quartermaster at the wheel will not leave
until after putting it hard iijxirt nnd
lushed il so. he will Ihen jump overboard.
"Dowu below the man at the reversing
gear will stop the engine-. Scramble upon
deck nnd get over the side as quickly us
possible. The man in the engine room
will break open the sea connections with
a sledge hammer und will follow his leader into the water. This last step insures
the sinking of the Merrimac whether the
torpedoes work or not.
TTieu Touch the llutton.
"By this time I calculate the six men
will  be in  the   dingy, und  the Merrimnc
will have swung athwart the channel to
the full length of her 300 yards of cabh:
which will lie paid but before the anchors
are cut loose. Then it is my time to
touch the button. I shall stand on the
starboard side of the bridge. The ex
plosion will throw the Merrimac on her
starboard side. Nothing on this side of
Xew York city will be able to raise her
after that."
"And you expect to come out of this
alive?"  asked a companion of the  lieu
never Thought   of   the  lllsk.
"Ah! that is another thing," said the
lieutenants He was so interested in Uie
mechanical details of the scheme that lie
scarcely slopped lo talk of possible death,
in reply to livqueut questions, Hobson
"1 suppose the Kstrella battery will
tire dow n on us a bit, bul the ships will
throw their searchlights iu the gunners'
faces and they won t see much of us.
Then, if we are torpedoed, we should even
then be able to maKe the desired position
in the channel. It won't be easy to hit
us, "and 1 think the men should be able
to swim to the dingy. 1 may jump before
1 am blown up. hut 1 don't see that it
makes much dilfereuce what I do. 1 have
a fair chance of life either way. If our
dingy gets shot to pieces we sliull then
try to swim for tlie bench right under
Mono custlc We shall keep together
at all hazards. Then we may be able
to get back to the ship. We shall fight
the sentries or a squad until the Tast,
and We shall only surrender to overwhelming numbers, and our surrender
will only take place as a lust nnd us a
most uncontemplated emergency.''
Lieutenant Hobson might huve been
lecturing to a class of cadets on the theory of how to build ships so deliberate
was his manner. He was lately at Annapolis, in charge of the post-graduate course
iu naval Construction, und is accounted
one of tin. most able naval constructors in
the service, being entirely wrapped up in
his profes -'.on.
The preliminary work of this desperate
undertaking was a strain upon the officers and meu. On Wednesday morning,
directly after Hear Admiral Sampson arrival und us soon ns lie wus certain the
Spanish Meet was in Ihc harbor, the preparations to scuttle the Merrimac in the
channel were commenced. All day long
crews from the Xew Vork and Brooklyn
were on board tlie collier, never resting
In their efforts to prepare her. She lay
alongside the Massachusetts discharging
coal when the work wns first begun. The
news of the intended expedition traveled
quickly through the fleet, and it soon
became known that volunteers were
needed for a desperate undertaking.
Volunteer* by II Ulldredrs.
Prom the Iowa's signal yard quickly
fluttered the announcement ���Uat she had
110 volunteers, and the other ships were
not far behind. On the Xew York the
enthusiasm was intense. Over 200 members of the crew volunteered to go into
that narrow harbor and face death. The
junior officers literally jumped over each
other in their eagerness to get then
names on the volunteer list.
Commander Miller, who hud charge of
the Merrimac, pleaded with tlie admiral
to let hlm go, but the latter thought lie
had better not. When it was learned
that only six men und Lieutenant Hobson
wer to go there was considerable disappointment on all sides and when the Xew
York's contingent went over the side later on Wednesduy night some of those
who were left were almost ready, brave
nnd strong as they were, to sit down and
All Wednesday night the crews worked
i aboard thc Merrimac which then Iny close
| to the Xew York, and the other ships as
i they  passed  the collier before  sundown
I cheered  her  with  the  samo  spirit  that
the Hritish mnn of warsmiin cheered the
American   sailors'    heroism   at   Samoa.
Lieutenant Hobson paid a short visit to
the flagship shortly before midnight and
then returned to the Merrimnc on board
of which craft he had lieen all day.   As
he started down the sea ladder there were
many hands stretched out to grasp his
and many quiet spoken earnest wishes for
his success.    It was thought then Hobson would take the Merrimac in early in
the morning.
At 3 o'clock the admiral and Flag Lieutenant Staunton got into the launch to
make an inspection of the Merrimac. The
working gangs were still on board of her
and on board the New York the officer*
of the flagship stood on the quarter deck,
their glasses focussed on the big black
hull that was to form an impassable obstruction for Spain's best ships.
The minutes slipped by, the crews had
not completed their work on the Merrimac, but at last, a boatload of men, black
and tired out, came over to the flagship.
Last of all at 4:30 o'clock came the admiral.   He had been delayed by a brenk-
down of the steam launch.
I-'imt    V<tempt���tailed   Hack.
Dawn  was breaking over Santiago de
, Cuba  and  nearly  everybody  thought  it
was too late for the attempt to be made
that morning.    Then    somebody    cried:
"She is going in!''
Surely enough, tha seemingly deserted
collier was seen bonding straight for Morro ensile. The torpedo boat Porter was
lying iu near the flagship and Admiral
Sampson's orderly, Lieutenant Staunton,
snatched up tbe megaphone nnd hailed
the Purler, saying: "Porter, there; tell
the Merrimac to return Immediately."
Smoke was pouring from Hie Porter's
smokestacks and the dark little craft
darted toward thc shore, By thut time
darkness hud quite disappeared and
quickly as the fast torpedo bout tore
through tlie water it seemed as if she
would never head off the Merrimac.
At lust, when under the range of the
Spaniards the Porter crossed the Mcrrimac's bows and a sigh of relief went up
from the eager watcher*, for they thought
that it wus sure death for Hobson io
venture in at that hour. Sometime after
5 o'clock thc Porter came tearing back
and the Merrimac to every one's surprise,
kept her position. Admiral Sampson,
Captain Chudwick und lieutenant Staunton could not understand until Lieutenant Fremont from the deck of the torpedo
boat shouted: "Lieutenant Hobson asks
permission to continue on his OQUrse. He
thinks he Can make it."
Hut in stem tones the admiral sent
Hobson a message to the effect thnt the
Merrimac must return ut once and in
due course of time the doomed collier
slowly steamed back, her commander evidently disappointed with tlie order received from the admiral through the commander of the Porter, Hobson's figure
standing out vividly on the lonely bridge
of the  Merrimac.
All day yesterday thc collier lay near
the flagship and more elaborate preparations were made to carry out the mission
of the Merrimac successfully. Pining
these preparation* Hobson was tireless,
cool and confident, supervising personally
every little detail. When finally Hobson
went on board the Merrimnc last night
he hnd been without sleep since Wednesday morning. His uniform wns begrimed, his liuiiil ��� were black and he looked
like a mnn who had been hard at work
in nn engine room for a long lime.
As he snid good live, the lieutenant
remarked that hi* only regret wns that
all of thc Xew York's volunteers could
not go with him.

Later in the day a boat w*it!i a white
Hug put out from the harbor nnd C'up-
tuin Oviedo the chief of stuff of Admiral
Cervera, boarded tlie Xew York nnd informed the admiral that the whole of the
party had ben captured and that only
two of them had been injured. Lieutenant
Hobson hud not been injured.
It appear* that the Spunish admiral
was so struck with the courage of the
Merrimac'* crew that he decided to inform Admiral Sampson that they had
not lost their lives but were prisoners of
wur and could be exchanged. The dingy
portion of the program does not appear
to huve lieen carried out which lends to
Ihe belief that she muy huve been smashed by a shot, for Hobson's men drifted
ashore on un old ctttnmnran which hnd
been slung over the Mcrrimnc's side at the
last moment as aa extra precaution. They
were captured nnd sent to Santiago under
guard previous to being transferred to
.Mono castle, where they are now understood to he confined.

The Yankee is the tallest of civilized

only one that approaches him in average
height, says the Des Moines Leader. Kven
the Englishman is a half inch shorter,
und the German a trifle more than an
inch. Tlie average American volunteer
stands 5 feet 7. inches in his stocking
feet, whereas the Spanish.-soldier averages
nearly two inchefr jhorter. Tlie American
is 10 pounds heavier than his antagonist,
and his chest expansion is markedly
greater. During the civil war the biggest men came from Kentucky, averaging
a trifle over 5 feet 8_ inches. Close behind
was Kansas, with Minnesota, Missouri,
California and Nevada following in the
order given. The men from all these
states averaged 6 feet 8 inches. Maine,
Illinois and Michigan fell two-tenths of
an inch below that mark, and next came
Ohio and Pennsylvania. Massachusetts
and Connecticut were at the foot of the
list, the volunteer* from the latter states
averaging only ii feet fl* inches.
Clarence Cunningham bus mnde the
first payment of four per cent on the
Flynn group. This deal has been in progress for several months, nn agreement
having been mude last fall with the Kansas City Smelting nnd Refining Company,
but when the time came to make the
tirst payment, as agreed upon, the company backed out. Mr*. Cunningham immediately commenced trying to Induce
other parties to take hold of the property,
but for a long time it looked as though
his efforts would be in vain. This payment of 4 percent of 9235,000, the amount
of the bond, however, is ample evidence
that hi* efforts hnve been successful.    It
is understood that the men behind Mr.
Cunningham  are  nil   local   parties, L)  in

A rat with a wooden leg is a curiosity,
as curiosities go nowadays. Yet such an
unimal can be seen any day at Uie resi-
dnece of a man named Dugmore, in the
southwestern section of the city, says the
Philadelphia Times. About a month ago
Willie Dugmore, a lad of 12 years, found
the little rodent in a trap in the cellar.
His tirst impulse was to brain the pest
with a baseball bat. but the rat looked at
him so pleadingly that Willie's heart was
touched, and he decided to take the trap
to an adjoining vacant lot and liberate
the animal. This he did, but. instead of
scampering off, as he expected, the rat
limped painfully up to him and began to
lick his hand. Willie then discovered that
one of the animal's legs had been almost
severed by tbe trap.
Taking the rat home, he cut thc leg off
and then bandaged the wound, using as
a liniment a little vaseline. He then put
the rat into a cage and nursed it for a
week. He then removed the bandage and
found that the wound had completely
healed. The rate was, however, unable to
walk, and Willie decided he would make
for it un artificial leg. Going down to Uie
cellar, he obtained a piece of pine, and
after some whittling succeeded in making
a leg. This he fastened on with a string.
and was delighted to see that his plan
was entirely successful. The rat is now the
family pet and can he seen any day hobbling about the kitchen or teasing a littlo
Irish terrier, of which it has made a lifelong friend.

use of the enemy's flag is permissible in
war within certain Imitations. According
to one writer, quoted in a Washington
dispatch: "The regulations of the United
States navy state that tho use of a foreign Hug to deceive an enemy is permissible, but that it must be hauled down before a gun is fired, and under no circumstances is an action to be commenced or
an engagement fought without the display of the national ensign."
Another authority says: "It is forbidden in war on land to make use of the
enemy's Hug for purpose of deceit. On
the sea the national flag ot a public armed
Vessel must be displayed before an engagement begins or a capture is made."
This implies that the enemy's flag may be
used for purposes of jleceit up to the time
of tiring, when the ship's own colors must
be displayed. The use of the enemy's flag
to mislead is no worse than the dissemination of false dispatches, which the Spaniards have practiced very freely.

(Per Associated Press bout Wanda, via

cable strands binding Cuba lo the outside
world were cut. this afternoon by a cable
vessel convoyed here by the United States
dispatch bout Dolphin.
This black sen crnh delved nil dny nlong
the coast, hour by hour, and its claws at
length brought up the barnacle clustered
cable strands and mapped them and tonight Cuba is wholly isolated.
The first cable picked up was that running to Kingston. It was found curly
this morning. Tlie const loop connecting
Santiago nnd Gunntiinnmo wns then cut.
Proceeding to Guautaiinino tbe cable vessel finally grappled nnd severed the Ha-
itien cable. This ends the cable cutting
operations begun a month ago when the
Marblehead and Windom lost five men
in the fight, off Cienfitegoes, where three
cables were crippled and several hundred
Spaniards killed by shells from warships.
