The U. S. embassy was the center of
interest for all London. There was a
continuous line of callers requesting
information, the majority boing Americans.
Many British naval officers have expressed the warmest admiration for
tho work of the American fleet. In fact,
the preponderance of sentiment In the
British navy seems to be with the
Americans throughout, the officers
giving many practical proofs of their
partiality.
International courtesy debarred the
high officials from commenting on the
result.

On Board the Flagship Brooklyn, off
Fort Monroe, May 2.���Before the newspaper boys brought special editions
with nows of tho battle of'Manilla un
board this morning, those who slept
until 18 o'clock were awakened by
sharp reports of guns. With tho exception of tho morning and evening
guns any explosion croates' sjxcltemont
now, and this was tho ease today, until it was learned that the Scorpion,
wbioh has joined, the squaflVon, was firing a salute. The salute was returned
and then came tho papers containing
the Associated Press dispatches of
Dewey's victory.
The following message was sent:
"To Dewey���The Flying Squadron
siaysto the Asiatic Squadron, Bully
boys.   Congratulations.
[Signed.) SchleY."
It was with great difficulty that the
men could be restrained from letting
their enthusiasm become too uproarious for good doscipline. t

Spoolnl Dispatch to the Knslo Morning News.
Northport, Wash., May 2.���Tho en-
tiro businoss part of thi. growing
young city was destroyed by fire at an
early hour this morning.
The fire broke out at J! o'clock in a
barber shop, presumably by the overturning of n lamp, the the flames
spreading with great rapidity. Every
effort was made to cheek the flames,
but without avail, and the citizens than
sot thonuolvos to saving the goods in
the many stores and warehouses. In
this way a largo amount of merchandise
was rescued, but the loss on buildings
will be very heavy.
By hard work the Spokano Falls tt
Northern Ry. depot was saved, as
water was obtainable there. The new
Le Kol smeller was also untouched, but
the main business portion of the town
Is now a heap of smoldering ruins. So
far as known no lives were lost.
Many citizens are already making
arrangements to rebuild.
In addition to the above, the News
learns from Alfred Brilo e,pA others
who came from Spokane last night,
that tho destruction of Northport was
most complete, the blackened ruins
showing the path of the flames of but a

tho subject, said that tho government
had received information pointing to a
serious battle at Manilla and the destruction of a portion of the Spanish
fleet. He added that a British warship
was on her way there, explaining that
anything the government could do to
preserve British lives and interests
would bo done.

Washington, D. C, May 2.���The naval bureau chiefs who have charge of

Special Dispatch to tlie Kaslo Morning New*
Washington, D. C, May 8, 2 a. m.���
If It is true that Dewey intended lo
bombard and blockade tho city of Manilla, it is unlikely that he can spare a
a vessel from his fleet to carry tho
news to Hong Kong, the nearest e.ible
station, so it is not known when official
advices will come. . ���
There was some expectation that
through tho surrender of tho oity, tho
commodore might acquire control ol
the cable, but fear is entertained that
beforo retiring from the city the Spanish troops will destroy the dilloate
and complicated olectrlcal apparatus
for the reception aud dispatch of message*, and It is uncertain that there is
enough mechanical skill in tho fleet
without aid from tho mainland to 10-
estiblish It.
The cutting of tho cable as reported
by the Spaniards, is not regarded as
particularly serious, Alnee being
hemmei in thero by the AmcMean
blockading floet, tho Spaniards would
nqt- be able to make the cut far off
shore so that the cable could be easily
grappled and r epaired.
The greatest anxiety ls felt as to the
casualties sustained by the Airo'ican
fleet. From the stubborn defence made
by the Spanish it is feared that before
they burned, blow up1 or sunk their
ships, they managed to inflict severe
damage upon Comodore Dewey's squadron. All of the ships engaged were
vulnerable in one respect, namely, iti
their lack of protection to life. There
was not an armored . ship- in  Commo

SIGNIFICANT VICTORY.
The lirst real battle of tho conflict
between United Statos and Spain has
been fought out, and the Stars and
Stripes are victorious. Rear Admiral
Dewey's Asiatic squadron has signally
defeated all of the Spanish naval forces
in western waters, and it is putting it
mild to say that all over tho United
States thoro is untold rejoicing. Even
in the staid capital, Washington, tho
the people fairly went into a frenzy of
joy. Later dispatches only confirm
tho earlier ones of the overwhelming
defeat and destruction of tho entire
Spanish squadron. The next news will
doubtless be of the bombardment and
capture of Manilla.
This signal victory, coming at this
time, early in the war, cannot fail to
be of great encouragement to Amori-
I'.m.-. and corresponding discouragement to the Spaniards, Tho battle cry
of tlio American sailors was, "Remember tho .Maine," and that memory
doubtless was no sir.-.ill factor in the
engagement. It would seem that the
murder of the gallant crow of tho
M una in Havana harbor haa been fully
avenged. Against Spain's eleven vessels the Americans had but six.
It is also significant that the comments of the English pros; are only
less enthusiastic because Great Britain
Is officially nout'-al in this war. But
unofficially there is no mistaking the
general trend of opinion. Unless
Spain can soon retrieve herself, the
war will not bo as extended as anticipated.
ships and land forces, which are their
equal or superior on paper only."
It is hardly necessary to point out
that the individual referred to is about
as lonely in his peculiar idea as a swallow in the winter time in the Kootenays.
Reasons for the general opinion that
a morning paper more fully meets the
publio needs than an evening journal,
are not hard to find. But a gentleman
in Arkansas once in explaining the
matter to a lady friend, was'pinned
down in this way: "Well, why is it
that this is the case?" "Because," he
replied, "nothing happens until 4.30
p. iu." Well, why is that?" she again
asked. "I don't know," he replied,
"unless itjis because no one gets drunk
until after that time."
The farewell of Rov. C. Ault Procun-
ior of this city reminds us that the
Methodist itinerant system is not yot a
thing of the past. Deep, indeed, must
be the devotion of the Methodist clergy
and their families to their church, to
give up all thought of ai. permanent
home or abiding place, and hold themselves in readiness to go wherever
commanded by their higher authorities, without permission to exceed a
given period of timo in their stay in
any ono place. The Observer.

MKN AND THINGS,
A resident o! this city, who ls a natural born Englishman, has taken occasion, of late to remark, ln no uncertain
toye of voice, which he w%_ willing to
���book with coin of the realm, that inside
of three months Spain would have the
I'tilted States well whipped���not to
say?   sutyug&ted:  entirely.     And   he
murted' a well-known English admiral
���>
in support of his unusual.opinion.
��� ��� \yhilo it goes without saying that,
not only in the States, but on this side
of the line, the opposite is almost, uni-
' vei'sally believed, yet in this connection the views of Lord Wolseley, com-
mander-jn-chie^ of the British army,
recently expressed, are worthy of note.
He said:."I believe the quality of the
American army ia so much -superier to
Spain's that the American* will have
no difficulty in dealing with Spain's

Spanish Auxiliary Cruisers.
Special Dispatch to the Kaelo Morning News.
London, May 2.���All the information
obtainable here concerns the Spanish
force of auxiliary cruisers, in regard to
which naval reports have emanated
from Madrid, tends to show that it has
been over-estimated. The two best
ships, the Columbia and the Norman-
nia, formerly of the Hamburg-American line, are yet unarmed, and it is believed they will be unable to secure
armament.
Tho chief factor ef the remainder of
tho Spanish force of auxiliary cruisers
consists of the six steamers belonging
to Barcelona Trans-Atlantic Steamship Co. They are fairly armed, but
thoy have been scattered. Two of them
are with the Cape Verde squadron as
transports, one is convoying the torpedo flotilla, another it is said is at
Santiago-de-Cuba and two are at
Cadiz.
17. S. Cong-reac to Thank Dewey.

"That the thanks of Congress be
tendered to Commodoro Dewey for tho
eminent skill and valor exhibited by
him and his squadron in the recent engagement, resulting in his glorious
victory over and, the destruction of the

Brick Yard to Start.
Millington & Taynton's brickyard,
ocross the K. & S. Ry. track from the
Katlo brewory, is being gotten in readiness to resume baking once more. Four
men have been at work for several
days making preparations, and it will
soon be in fuU operation, turning out
a quality and quantity of brick equal
to all local needs.
Increasing thc Capacity.
Rupert E. A. Mueller, manager of
the Kaslo Brewing Co., will today
transfer the 6,500 lb. boiler from the
International wharf to the brewery on
the hill. The boiler is of 25 horse
power capacity and came from the
.lonekes Machine Co., of Shcirbrooke,
Quebec An addition to the brewery
will be built for the boiler., and. it is
expected to be installed by the end of
the week. It will be used for driving
pumps, heating and other matters incidental to this growing business.
Plica doing to Nelson.
Captain West, of the steamer Halys,
came down from Argenta Sunday afternoon, and hereafter will make one trip
weekly, and two If possible. Yesterday he was getting ready to take a
boom of 300 piles to Nelson to be used
in the constriction of the new C. P. R,
wharf there. Some of these piles are
100 feet in length, to be used in deep
water, and arejtho longest ever known
to have been used on this lake or in the
Kootenay country.

KASLO RIVER PLACERS.
Systematic Operations in Search of
the Yellow Stuff.
Four Cars In Five Minutes.
No time is now being lost in finishing
the A avenue grading under Contractor Carlson. The gravity tram cars are
now running in trains of four cars each
and a round trip is made every five
minutes, the result being that a constant stream of gravel is pouring into
the fill. Cribbing has beon done on
the north bide of the avenue, and it is
probable that within jthree weeks or a
month the entire work will be completed and ready for traffic. A section of
the ball park fence has also been removed on account of the excavating.
Kvldences of Summer.
For several days last past the dust on
the streets of Kaslo has begun to make
Itself observable.. Accordingly several
business men have earned the gratitude of their neighbors by sprinkling
the street in front of their places of
business, through hose with a strong
head of water, Now that the city has
an ample supply of water, It would be
well if some ssystem of public street
sprinkling could be Inaugurated'.
Watching the Water Mains
Water Commissioner Cockle now
dally takes his station on the improvised bridge, half way up the A avenue
cut, and keeps close watch of the gang
of workmen there, who are prkparinfe
to place the water main four feel'below
the established grade, or six feet lower
than it is at present laid. The job is a
particular one, as If the pipe should by
any means be broken, before the water
is turned off thousands of dollars In-
damage would be done. Contractor
Carllon will receive 50c per fqot for
this part of the contract, there being
perhaps 200 feet of pipe to be lowered.
It is expected that water will he ��hut
off tomorrow morning while the lowering ib being done.
Kaslo's First Rally.
The first issue of tho Kaslo Morning
News appeared Thursday. It succeeds
tbe weekly paper of the same name
and the editor proudly announces that
Ms is the. first daily paper published
in Kaslo.-Spokane Spokesman-Review.
For Kemp Mineral Water, call on J
A. Swift, at the Bodega. ���
For several weeks past F. W. Garland,, and W. S. Jones of this city have
been quietly working on Kaslo river,
making preparations to systematically
work the'.placers in the bed of that
strean}. On,March 20th they located
two placer claims, the Hattie N. No. 1
and Hattie N. No. 2, near the fifth
trestle on the K. & S. railway. Since
then they have been getting ready to
wash tbe yellow stuff from the sands of
this swift flowing stream, by building
and putting up sluice boxes, digging
trenches and doing other work incidental to placer raining.
At the point where thoy decided to
begin work, a pit 8 feet square has
been sunk to bed rock, and two substantial hand pumps installed to take
out the surface water that accumulates
over night. A small dam has also been
built in tbe river to get a fall of water,
but another will soon be constructed
to give increased fall.
Sluicing has only been done fer a
few days, and no clean-ups have yet
been made. Colors are numerous
however, and it is believed by somo
that at least $2 per day will be the result, though Mr. Garland makes no
predictions himself. With a partner
he has also taken up another claim
near the second trestle, and yesterday
was cutting location posts and putting
in sluice boxes.
The gravel of Kaslo river has been
washed for years by Chinamen, some
of whom are said to have done well,
though from their oyster-like communicativeness no one has ever learned
the facts. Now, however, it appears,
that a thorough test of the auriferous
gravel will be given, to see if gold is
deposited there in paying quantities.
Kx-Mayor Green Back Tomorrow.
Ez. Mayor Robert F. Green, who with
Mrs. Green, has been spending some
weeks at the paradise of the Pacific,
the Sandwich Islands, is now on the
way back from Honolulu.and is expected home in Kaslo tomorrow night. He
has been staying a few days in Vancouver on the way home, and sends
word that his health has been much
improved by the ocean trip. RAIT ROADS AND 8TKAMDOAT8.
