BISMARCK TALKS
Britain ii France,
i Send an Ultimatum to
Government at Paris.
Berlin, May 21���Public attention in
this country has been temporarily diverted from the war between Spain
and the United States to the very
significant speech recently made at
Birmingham by .loseph Chamberlain,
the British Secretary of State for the
Colonies. Tbe bulk of opinion since
the text of the speech has been available, corresponds to the utterances of
Prince Bismarck, tolegraphed to the
Associated Press on Wednesday last,
which in the former the chancollor
was quoted as saying:
"The importance thereof depends
upon whether Mr. Chamberlain's private opinions are those of the British
government. Closer Anglo-American
relations are doubtless feasible, but
an alliance is improbable and unserviceable to both. Germany's duty
plainly is to maintain her interests by
carefully nursing the good neighborship of tho Europoan powers."

IKE
Something entirely now In qualifications for suffrage is about to be given
a trial In Louisiana. The provision
finally adopted, not without opposition,
requires au educntlonnl test for suffrage, but mukes an exception where
the illiterate voter possesses property
or his wife haa property. Exception
Is ulso made In case of n foreigner naturalized prior to the first of this year,
nnd In the case of an Illiterate voter
whose father or grandfather wus n
voter In'Louisiana or some other Slate
previous to .Inn. 1. 18(17. With voting
where Suffrage Is granted because of
the elector's garden patch or his
wife's mules we nre familiar, for several States have similar property qualifications. But the plan of permitting
a man who cannot rend nud hns uo
mules to vote simply because his
grandfather wns a voter more than
thirty yenrs ago is a decided Innovation, The proposal would be amusing
were It not so serious, ln business life
young men frequently bank ou the
credit of their fathers, and In social
life there ls a tendency to rely on
grandfathers or more distant ancestors. This, however. Is the first suggestion of a hereditary qualification
for suffrage lu any American State.
It certainly is not u suggestion of the
surviving grandfathers, for few of
them would cure to continue voting Indefinitely through illiterate descendants. This strange suffrage qualification is of doubtful validity. A majority
of the delegates opposed It. but accepted it as a compromise, Both of the
I'nlted stales Senators from Louisiana
huve declared lt unconstitutional from
n Federal standpoint, and u number of
other Senators consulted denounce it.
If it Is finally tried und sustained whnt
new aud strange suffrage qualification
may we not expect from the next const itutlon-maklng body?
In Japan's new Cabinet are several

(or a   Wi'tltlliiK Tour.
A promising young lawyer who has nn
offloe in the tiirard building lias just made
the delightful discovery that his fiancee is
lso a financier. The young man's sweet*
, cart resides in (.iermantow n, and for several months past he has called upon her
regularly thrice a week. When he lirst
met the girl, two years ago, he was, of
course, extremely anxious to make a good
impression, und he lavished many presents
upon her. The girl's parents ure quite well
a to do, but she disapproves of any sort of
^ display or prodigulity, and when, in the
natural course of events, the young man
proposed, and was accepted, she felt it to
be her privilege and her duty to read him
a little lecture on "Economy." She called
his attention to the fact that every time
he called he had been in tlie habit of
bringing flowers and candy to the value
|i of a dollar or two. She suggested that in
the future he should discontinue the presents handing over a silver dollar instead
whenever lie came to see hor. He laughed)
for he thought she was joking, but she
speedily assured him that she was much
in earnest. So he paid his dollur regularly, and finally came t�� the conclusion that
the money was being devoted to charity.
The wedding day was set for next month,
and an extended tour was contemplated.
Unfirtunately, the young lawyer recently
took a "flyer'' in stocks, and dropped so
much money that he had to notify his
fiancee that their wedding trip must lie
dispensed with. The dear girl laughed at
him, and, leaving the room for a moment,
presently returned with a satchel containing 250 silver dollars. Their plans will not
be changed.���Philadelphia Record.
RUSSIAN   LABOR    STATISTICS.
THE TURN OF LIFE.
Owing to modern methods of living,
not one woman In a thousand approaches this perfectly natural change
without experiencing a train of very
annoying and sometimes painful symptoms.
Those dreadful hot flashes, sending
the blood surging to the heart until it
seems ready to
burst, and the
faint feeling
that follows,
sometimes
with chills, as
if the heart
were going to
stop for
good, are
symptoms
of a dangerous
nervous trouble. The nerves are crying out for assistance. The cry should
be heeded in Iimi*. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was prepared to meet the needs of woman's
system at this trying period of her life.
Mrs. Della. Watson, 524 West 5th
St., Cincinnati, Ohio, says:
" I have been using Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for some
time during the change of life and It
naa been a saviour of life unto me.

relief. I would be glad to relate my experience to any sufferer."

WHY WE ARE RIGHT HANDED.
A I.f-Kncy  that   Hum  Descended to Us
from Helllcose Ancestry.
Primitive man, lielng by nature a
fighting animal, fought, for the most
part at flrst, with his canine teeth, his
nulls and his fists, till In process of time
he added le those early nnd natural
Weapons the further persunslons of a
club or shllhilah.
He fought, as Darwin has conclusively shown, mainly for the possession of
ladles of his kind, against ottier members of his own sex and s.pecles. If you
fight you soou learn to protect the most
!exposed and vulnerable portion of your
body. Or, If you don't, natural selection manages it for yon, by killing you
off as an Immediate consequence.
To the boxer, wrestler, or hand-to-
hand combatant, the mo��t vlnnerable
portion is undoubtedly the heart. A
hard blow, well delivered, on the left
breast, will easily kill.
Hence, from an early period men have
used the right hand to fight with and
have employed the left arm chiefly to
cover the heart and to parry a ulow
aimed at that specially vulnerable region. And when weapons of offense
and defense supersede mere fists and
teeth, It is the right hand ihat grasps
the spear or sword, whine the left siolds
over the heart, for defense, the shleiii
or buckler.
From this simple origin, then, the
whole vast difference of right and left
In civilized life takes its beginning. At
first the superiority of the right hand
w��* only felt In the manner of fighting.
But that alone gave It a distinct pull,
and paved the way at last for the supremacy elsewhere. For when weapons came Into use, the habitual employment of the right hand to grasp the
s|>ear. sword or knife, made the nerves
or muscles of the right side fnr more
obedient to the control of the will than
those of the left.
The dexterity thus acquired by the
right���s<h* how the word "dexterity"
Implies this fact���made It more natural
'. for the early hunter and artificer to employ the same ham. In the manufacture
of Hint hatchets, hows and arrows, nnd
all other manifold activities of savage
life. It was the hand with which he
grasped his weapon; It was therefore
the hand wlili which he chipped It. The
right hand remains especially "the
hand ln which you hold your knife;"
snd thnt Is how your children decide the
question which Is which wheu they begin to know their right hand from their
left for practical purposes.���Saturday

How to Live I,one.
By reason of certain articles In the
dally pa|��*rs, Punch has lieen inundated with letters irom a host of cor-
respondents who beg blin to observe
the rules by which they have attained
longevity, but at the same time he finds
't difficult to follow the advice of all.
"Septuagenarian," for Instance, urges
hlm to become a vegetarian. "On no
account touch meat. It ls poison. For
the hist fifty years I have dined on a
boiled onion, aud supped off a pint of
lentil porridge." "Octogenarian," on
the other tiaud, urge�� hlm "to eat, drink
ami lie merry as much and ns often as
you please. I find there is nothing like
a good dinner, followed by a theater,
and supper with plenty of champagne,
to put me In real good form." "Nonagenarian" declares that "Ih i secret of
long life lies In u cold tub bath taken
every morning, winter and summer,
with unfailing regularity." "Centenarian," again, writes: "Beware of soap
and waiter���they si>ell death. For my
part, I have only had a bath once In
my life, when I went to the workhouse
aud could not help myself. The result
was I caught a chill from which I
nearly died." "Home-bird" avers that
she owes her eighty years of happiness
to matrimony. "Gay Dog of Ninety"
says: "Half a century ngo I was to
marry, when 1 suddenly remembered
your advice." "Blue Ribbon" nrguee
that none but teetotalers can, or deserve to, attain to old age. "Diver," on
the contrary, writes, "There Is nothing
like good liquor to preserve a man."
"Irishman" writes, "If 'r!�� long ye're
wantln' to live, ye must begin over
ag'in. 'Tis all a question of heredity,
It ls. Ye must choose yer own feylhei
an' mother an' see they cooni from a j
long-lived stock, an' that's the only |
way at all, at all." If lt were not for i
the Initial object that he Is already
born, and the further difficulty of se- I
looting your parents before you your-
Self have any existence. Punch wolllil j
lie Inclined to believe that "Irishman"
bad hit the nail on the head: but for!
the present these two obstacles seem j
Insuperable, For the rest, as It Is manifestly Impossible to adopt the advice
of all, he has decided to continue lu his
old habits nnd to take his chance of
long life with his neighbors.

Strange Chinese Daw.
If a Chinese dies while being tried
for murder, the very fact of his dying
Is taken as evidence of his guilt. He
has departed, but somebody must suffer, and his eldest son, if he has one,
ls Bent to prison for a year. If he has
no son, then his father or brother gets
a flogging. It's all in the family, and
Justice must be administered.
None but a mean man will upbraid
his wife for powdering her nose on a
sweaty day and then turn around and
comb bis back hair up over the baM
spot on the top of hia bead.

LORD ABERDEEN'S RETIREMENT
lt is to be regretted that so wise a
loader and so true a patriot as the
Earl of Aberdeen should huve. been required by bis private Interests and
family claims to announce the coming
resignation of his office as Governor-
General *6f Canada, before tho full six
years of his offlical term should expire.
Locally and especially it is regrettable
that Ets far v.s Kaslo is concerned, it
should contain a so-called journalist,
flippant and shallow enough to grout
Aberdeen's departure with a --noi'!'.
The Hows hi beon requested to
state wilh emphasis, that such sneering remarks in no wi-*e represent the
public opinion of Kaslo. It, was not at
first deemed wise or necessary to dignify the scribbler who wrote it by paying nn;, attention to the occurrence,
but the ugly words have cut deep into
the finer feeling-, of many patriotic
people, who arc galled by the mere
thought tbat a non-Canadian chatterer
who looks to tbo community for a living, should deliberately attempt to insult the head of the government.
Lord Aberdeen is one of tbo truest
friends that British Columbia has���
the only Governor-General who ever
honored Kas'.o by bis presence. Uo
has shown bis faith in and liking for
this Province by investing extensively
in it. lie and his honored lady havo
over been foremost in daeds ofj philanthropy, and belong to nature's nobility
as well as to royalty.
As Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, Aberdeen showed himself the truest friend
of Erin's race that has over occupied
that position. He has the gratitude of
the Irish people foi doing morn to
ameliorate their condition than any
other statesman who has dealt with
them.
His unselfish nal ure Is shown by the
fact thnt be waived the choice of bo-
coming Viceroy of India, at a salary of
over stlOOsW annually, in favor of bis
old schoolmate, Lord Elgin, whose
financial requirements were greater,
and accepted the Governor-Gonoral-
ship of tbe Dominion instead, where
the cost of properly maintaining that
position is far In excess of tho salary allotted to it. Whon ho retires from
office next autumn, his departure will
ie regretted Ay every true Canadian
and by all sensible Americans resident within Canadian borders.

News of tlie Muni Nevada.
Several months ago news was
brought from tho north of the foundering between Wrangel and Skagway, of
the little steamor Clara Nevada. Her
fato ha9 heretofore and is still only a
matter of conjecture, but a small ray
of new light has been thrown on the
tragedy. The steamer J. M. Cole, plying botween Juneau and Skagway less
than a fortnight ago picked up a row
boat, high and dry and in good condit-
on the bank off which tho Nevada is
supposed to hav8 met her fate. This
boat, whieh bears the name of tho lost
steamer, contained a couple of miners'
bags and some provisions, while at a
short, distance away evidences were
found of a lire having been lightod and
this proves fairly conclusively that
some one has a story of tho disaster.
A search party is now out looking for
the supposod survivor.

HAVANA STEAMERS THE BAIT.
Tried   to   Lure   Ainerlenn   Warships
Into  n   Storm   of   Projectiles���Too
< i ion   to  He Cnuaht,  but  Gave
tlie   Dons  u   Fast   Hun.
Key West, May 16.���Captain General
Blanco two liours before sundown yesterday attempted to execute a ruse which,
if successful would have cleared the front
of Havana of six ships on that blockading
slut ion. Unable to come out to do battle he adopted the tactics of tlie spider
and cunningly planned to draw the prey
into his net; hut, though a clever and
pretty scheme as an original proposition,
it. was practically a repetition of the trick
of whieh the gunboat Vicksburg and the
little converted revenue cutter Morrill
were decoyed by a fishing smack under
the big Krupp guns of Santa Clara batteries. Thanks to had gunner}*, both
ships on that occasion managed to get
out of range without being sunk, though
.some of the shells hurst close aboard, and
the Yickslnirg's ladder was cut adrift.
The wary are never caught twice in the
same trap.
The   Halt   Sullen  Out.
date yesterday afternoon the shi]>s on
the Havana station were dumfouiided to
see two ships steam out of Havana harbor
and head east. Dense smoke was streaming like black ribbons from their stacks,
and a glance showed that they were under a full head of steam. By aid of glasses Commodore Lilly of the Mayflower,
which was Hying the pennant, made out
the larger of Uie two vessels, which was
about 200 feet long and of about 4000
tons displacement, to be the Alfonso XII.,
and the smaller one to be the Le (lazpi,
both of which were known to lie bottled
up in Havana harbor. At first he supposed they were taking advantage of the
absence of the heavy firing ships and
were making a bona fide run for the open
sea. As superior officer, he signaled tlie
other ships on the station, the Yicksburg,
Annapolis. Wasp. Tecuinsch and Osceola,
which were moving iu to form a column
in echelon with the gunlxmts on the
right Hank. The little, squadron moved
in obliquely toward the ilooing Spaniards,
keeping up a running Ore as they went.
The Alfonso and her consort circled inshore about Ave miles below, and after
running in for half an hour headed in for
Moro castle. Our gunboats and thin-
skinned vessels of the mosquito lleet did
nol follow them iu.
Lilly   Sun-   the   Hue,
Commander Lilly saw that the wily
Spanish ruse was to draw them in under
the lire of the heavy batteries, where the
Spanish artillery ollicers could plot out
the exact range with their leleinetres and
pot, them. So the return was made in
line ahead parallel with thc shore.
Commander Lilly hud not been mistaken. As his ships came alliens., of the
Santa Clara batteries tlie big guns opened and fired Bi shells at a distance of
about five miles. Tlio range was badly
judged, ns more thnn half tlie shells overshot the mark and others fell short, some
as much as a mile.

Xew York, May 14.���Briiiistrect's says:
Business gains rather than loses iu attractiveness as spring advances.   While
the favOlttble situation  in  cereals is the
mainspring of the Improvement, manifesting itself iii many sections of the country, I
there are causes combining therewith to
make the otitlixik for buyers for the current season a flattering one. Following
tUe rapid advances in the prices of wheal,
which apparently culminated for tho time
being early in the current week in a quotation for cash wheat unequalled, witli
one niiigle exception, and that only for
a short period of time, for 25 years pimt.
I here has ionic a lull und the reaction
trom the abnormally high prices caused
hy the sipicoze in the May delivery,which
however, hu.s left juices far above Quotations for at least 10 years back. Tele-
graphic cable advices to Unidsticot's only
accentuate the already well known bullish nature of the Immediate wheat situation, particularly in this and other countries, the outlook appears above those
for the past six years. Willi the quieting down of the interest in wheat there
has come a partial shifting of speculative
interest to other grains, particularly corn
and oats, and many classes of provisions
with advances in nearly all those lines.
Key West, May 14.���Tlie United States
cruiser Marblehead, gunboat. Xu.shville
and auxiliary cruiser Windom steamed
up to the harbor of Cienfuegos Wednesday morning with orders to cut the cable
connecting Havana with Santiago de
Cuba. This task was accomplished, but
only after a terrific fight between our
warships and several thousand Spanish
troops, which lined tiie shore and were
concealed behind improvised breastworks.
Soon after tlie arrival of the warships
oil Cienfuegos, four boats were launched
and proceeded inshore for the purpose of
grappling for tlie cable in order to cut it.
The warships lay to about 1000 yards or
more off the harbor. It was observed
that the Spanish troops had assembled
along shore but it was not known that
heavy guns had been placed in masked
batteries and that tlie old lighthouse batteries on tlie neck of land had been transformed into a formidable fort.
The small bouts proceeded cautiously
and for more than an hour worked unmolested on the cable. When the work was
about completed a shore battery fired
a shell at the boats. It was followed hy
others and the Spanish infantry opened
lire then with their rifles. Then, like a
flash the Marblehead sent a shell inland and followed it with a perfect shower
of shot. Then the Windom cut loose
with her 4-poundcr.
In the meanwhile Spanish bullets flew
in every direction around the small boats.
The blue jackets were not dismayed, and
protected by tlie terrific return lire by
the warships, the work was continued and
the cable cut.
When the boats returned to the ships,
Regan, who was in one of the Marble-
head's boats, of which tliere were two,
was found to have been killed. Six men
were badly wounded.
The Spaniards had by this time suffered severe loss. Their shots from the
lighthouse struck the warships several
times and although they did not do much
damage, the fire aroused the determination of the American ollicers to exterminate tlio forts. Thereafter, for a moment,
the fire of Ihe ships was concentrated
on the lighthouse and the improvised fort
was blown to pieces. As there were
great numbers Of the Spanish iu and behind the fort nt the time, tliere is no
doubt that ninny of them were killed.
The. Marblehead and Nashville used their
heaviest guns us well u.s their small rapid-
Bring guns und an hundred shots were
thrown into the Spanish troops.

London, May 15.���A dispatch to the
Times from Madrid, which will lie published |tomorrow, confirms the official denial at the Spanish capital thut the cabinet changes nre connected with a jieace
movement.
The 'Times correspondent says: *VThe
conclusion to be drawn from the reorganization that they nre seeking a peace-
aide solution of the question has, for the
moment, been abandoned and the jvar
will he prosecuted vigorously. There
was a prolonged cabinet council this afternoon dealing With tho crisis and sev-
eitil |>oints were practically settled. Senor
Sagasta, though weak in health, remains
president of the council of ministers, because the liberals are in a majority, in
tlie chamber and it would be inconvenient to have a cabinet chief, however, distinguished, who is not chief of the liberal
party. Four ministers, Sellers Gullon,
Bermejo, Moret and Xiqiiena, will retire,
partly for personal reasons nnd partly because of differences on important policies. Senor Sugusta will choose the
strongest liberals lie can find, but several of the strongest, notably Senor (<a-
mnzo, have intimated that they will not
take office at present.

publishes a note as to Cuban affairs
which is much commented upon. The
note asserts that affairs in Cuba, wear ii
more reassuring aspect; that tho submission of numerous Insurgents is expected and that the Spanish negotiations
with the principal insurgent chiefs offer
possibilities of success.
Tlio Madrid press i'id the people nre
elated over the alleged smartness of Admiral Cervera in sending Admiral Villa*
mil to Martinique Ufi hours after the former was well on his way toward Havana.
While it was supposed that Yillamil was
scouting ahead, he was really tne squadron's rear guard, the Spaniards thus gaining invaluable time.
Senor Gullon, in reply to a newspaper
representative, said the Americans were
blameworthy for bombarding towns without giving notice and lidded thnt the
government would address a note to the
powers on the subject.
With reference t^ the speech of Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain, the Hritish secretary of stale for the colonies, at Birmingham on Friday night, Senor Gullon said
it had real Importance, not only for
Spain, but for the future of Europe. He
declared also thai   a red  hook would  be
presented to the chamber on Wednesday
next, in which tlie government declares
the blockade of Culm Ineffective and will
express the hope that the powers in Ku-
ropfl and America will refuse lo recognize it.

New York, May 14.-���A correspondent
of tlie World sends the following dispatch from St. Thomas, descriptive of
the bombardment of San Juan:
Admiral Sampson's fleet lay within
sight of sSan Juan de Puerto Rico all of
Wednesday night. At 3 o'clock on Thursday morning all hands on all the ships
were' called. For an hour and a half
each ship was tho scene of an orderly
confusion as the 2000 sailors stripped
their ships, their guns and themselves.
By 4:30 everything was in readiness to
begin the second engagement of the war.
At ii:lo came the call "To quarters,"
and instantly every man was at his post
and ready and eager to strike a blow in
atonement of the Maine. Tlie object of
attack lay in pluin view, straight ahead
to tho south.
The fortifications nnd butteries of San
Juan' de Puerto Rico are on tlie coral
reef guarding the entrance to the harbor.
It was a glorious morning, the sky unclouded, the air cool and brisk. A long
heavy swell rolled toward the shore nnd
broke ngninst tlie reef whose fortifications
scctficd to be asleep.
TcTniark the limits of the line of battle,
the Detroit and the tug Waumpautuck
steamed shoreward, the Detroit to the
eastward until she was opposite the Yal-
tern, the Waumpautuck to the westward
until she was aide to anchor her small
boats in 10 fathoms of water just out
of range of the great fort of San Juan
Mono, which rises on a high hill at the
east of tlie harbor.
The Center of Attack.
Mnrro, of course, was to be thc center
of Attack. In it were tlie seven Cinch
gurt* which Spain sent over as soon as
the war became certain and which hud
been hastily mounted and manned with
the.best gunners in the colonial army.
Soon after the Detroit and Waumpautuck
were in place, Admiral Sampson's column
of floating fortresses und butteries began
to move upon tlie quiet and seeming
sleeping fortress.
In Uie van was the Towa, the flagship,
with the battle cry of the navy streaming
in brilliant colored lings from her mast���
"Remember the Maine." Next came the
huge Indiana, of such enormous bulk that
alio rode aim'-it steady even upon that
heavy sea. li"! *i followed the New York,
ns formidable ns a battleship; then the
low-lying monitors Aniphitrite and Terror. They bore straight for the shore in
a single file.
A   SI art   From  Shore.
Long before the flagship was in range
then* came a flash, a cloud of smoke, a
roar und u shell from the walls of Mono,
The shell fell fur short. The ronr died
away and for 15 minutes the scene was
as  peaceful  us before.
Suddenly the Iowa turned sharply to
the eust. She came uroiuid peacefully
until her starboard battery was pointing
full at Mono. One of her great 13-inch
guns burst into flume nnd u shell sailed
high toward Mono. It fell short but thc
response came���a roar from all the batteries and forts along the shore. A tremendous burst of sound and smoke and
flame, a shower of shells thut wasted
themselves in the sea. So wild was the
volley that even had the Iowa been in
range none of tlie shots would have hit
her.
The Iowa wns now nearer and the entire line of warships was in position to
attack the Spanish shore line. Each ship
was now nearer and the entire line was
in position to attack tlie Spanish shore
line. Each ship was now firing and each
shore gun was nnswenng. But wiuie s.ic
Spanish aim was wild, the American gunners fired with tlie Calmness and precision of experience in target practice.
Tlie lleet was soon enveloped in smoke
as was also the shore. Only outlines
could be mnde out, but it was apparent
tlmt while the Spanish shells issued from
the smoke of the shore to fall into the
sen. the American shells rushed from the
fleet's envelope of smoke to bury themselves iu the smoke on shore. And now
nud then as the wind drifted the thick
gray curtain aside it could lie seen thai
ihe American ships were uninjured and
that on shore the line that was unbroken
was all in ashes.
I'*leet   Draws   Nearer.
when the Iowa same up lo the Waurat
puiituck stake bout she turned und led
tho column hack again across the line of
fire. The lleet was now nearer and the
Spanish shells fell around the ships. Some
struck ngninst tlie nrmor of the buttle-
sliip���big (J inch shells���but they bounded
off leaving hardly a dent behind.
One Spanish shell struck a boat on the
Iowa passing through it and entered the
superstructure, scattering splinters in every direction. Three men were injured.
Admiral Sampson and Captain Evans
were on tlie lower bridge and narrowly
escaped the flying fragments. In all the
Iowa was hit nine times. Later a shell
burst on the New York, killing one man,
injuring another severely and several
slightly.
In Terrllle Heat.     ,
At 7 o'clock the day had become furiously hot so that men were fainting below the decks and at the guns the gunners were streaming sweat as no man
ever_sweats even in the hot room of a
Turkish bath.
One man, a gunner's mate, on the Am-
phitritc, was overcome and died in a fewJ
hours.
But the battle went on.   Tlie fleet wn��
now steaming across tlie fortified front off 1
the island for the third time.   Tlie finn-hf
from the ships wus uiuibutcd, but manyi
of tlie Spanish  guns were silenced ane;-
while the shower of shells seemed as thick!,
as ever, the thinner cloud of smoke, the]
leaping flames from burning houses clo*><*. j
to the shore, but. behind the fortification1*^
made  the  Americans  know  their work/1
was not as vain as tlie frenzied firing o.l
the Spaniards. '
Burned the Town,
In tlie old part of the town of San Juaojj
adjoining tlio fortifications whole block.-*""
were blazing.   The swelling sea made iui
ilillicult   for  thc  Americans  to    confine���
their lire to thc batteries. Many of then
shells flew over and hurst among the an^l
cient buildings from which tlie population
had  fied  at dawn.      So fierce was  thejj
American fire that had the intention been
to bombard the residence portion of San!
Juan the damage could hardly have been!*
greater.
The lighthouses were demolished soon
after  the  firing  began.      Later on  the j
houses  iu   llnlluj  squnre in St. Christo-<
pher st recti in Sun Jose street and in San
Sebastian street were in flames.   Tlie St.
Catharine institute, nn ancient palace, the *J
orphan asylum,  the  old  churches,  were
burned or almost demolished.
The   American  officers   through  their ���'
glasses, could see the Spuniords at work   |
in muny places where the fortifications
had  been broken  down.    Tlie Spaniards
seemed drunk with fury. They loaded and
fired like madmen, without aiming, without any appearance of discipline or direction.   At times their crazed condition
led them to many absurd ects, such as
waving  swords,  slinking  fists  and   dis-
charging  pistols  at  the  American  line, 'J
which was barely within reach of their
guns of longest range.
"Cense Firing:."
Toward 8 o'clock the heat became absolutely unbearable on the American
ships. It became evident that the Spanish foils could not be silenced short of
another hour's work. Men on the American ships were dropping on all sides, not
from Spanish shots, but from the accurate and terrific bombardment under the
tropical sun.
After consultation Admiral Sampson
signalled "Cense firing" nnd turned away
westward. The other ships followed, all
except, the monitor Terror. She did not
or would not see the signal of the admiral. She remained in her position in
range of ull the unsilenced guns of the
Spaniards. For hulf an hour she kept
roaring awny ut tlie forts nnd embankments with an almost incessant fire from
her 10-inch guns.
The Spaniurds concentrated their fire
on her. But her audacity seemed to in-
furiata them beyond even attempts at
marksmanships Many of the shells
struck the sea a mile and u half from her.
Only a few cnnie anywhere in her neighborhood. Still fewer struck her low-lying
deck and these glanced away as harmlessly as a pea-shooter's slug from tlie
shell of a turtle. The Terror's guns are
noisy, but their roars were drowned in
the tempetstuous booming of the Spanish
batteries. Before she steamed reluctantly
away she had the satisfaction of noting
that she hud mnde mnny a deep wound in f|
the Spanish line nnd silenced several guns
that might have made trouble later on.
A l'eiv Minutes for Refreshments.
The fleet steamed to the westward
about 20 miles nnd then stopped to remove tlie grime of battle and to rest and
refresh the weary but happy sailors.
The Spaniards evidently got the idea
that the departure wus a. retreat and that
the Americans had been driven off. So
they sent out dispatches about a great
Spanish victory just as they did at Manila, when Dewey steamed away to rest
and get breakfast.
While the fleet was at anchor 20 miles
from San Juan a German steumer, the
Bolivia, canu by. She was on her way
to St. Thomas. Admiral Sampson decided tlint it would be licst to find out
more ubout her nnd sent the Montgomery
in pursuit. She was presently overhauled
and while she Steamed along Lieutenant
Field went ubonril, examined her papers
und looked over the passengers to make
sure thut she was not going to call at
Sun Juan on her way.
As the .Montgomery started back, and
hud gone nearly to San Juan, she spied
the Spanish cruiser Isabella III, an old
warship, crawling out of San Juun liar-
b a and crawling along in-shore, evidently going to see what hod become of the
American lleet and whether it was really
Hying, as the Spaniards wished to think,
or was only preparing anew the complete
ruin of San Juan. *
When the Isabella saw the Montgomery
she put about' hastily und went back
home.

! By far the largest mining ileal ever con-
Iimmated in the northwest was closed
Saturday, when the final pn]>eis were
Jgned that transferred the famous Le Roi
l*ine and smelter at Northport to the
[ritish America Corporation for the sum
18,000,000. By the terms of the sale a
ilf million dollars is paid down and an
Jilinl payment made monthly until the
fitire price is paid. The Le Boi, since its
rst development in 18i)f>, has paid in dlv-
Bends the handsome sum of .$825,000. Of
be $3,000,000 paid for the mine, four-
Ifths of it goes to Spokane parties, Tlie
lew owners have already acquired all the
Killing properties surrounding the Le Koi
Ind Bed .Mountain, embraced in uhout
100 acres of hind, and it is now the inten-
���ion of the corporation to develop n number of these mines from the workings of
Ilie l.e Koi mine, ���ins saving a. half mil
ion in development work.
���loc Burgeois and Joe Morris, two
French-Canadian prospectors, were tlie
lliseoverers of thes property.' Joe Bur-
Leois, who had mined in placers but never
Tin quarts, was sent to do assessment work
lipon tlie. Lily May.-the.first claim located
|in Kossland. This work performed, Bur*
Jgeois loafed and smoked and waited for
���supplies that were coming from Nelson.
���Looking across at Red mountain, he saw
pt was bare in places and could be easily
prospected, In the meantime lie had be-
Jcoine. associated with Joe Morris, a pros-
Ipector, und the two went across the enn-
Ivon and discovered the bold iron cupping
lof numerous strong veins. On these they
lloeuted the Le Koi, the War Kugle, the
���Center Star, the Idaho und the Virginia.
1 Hut with prospective millions in their
[grasp, Hurgeois and Morris were poor
���men. so poor that they could hardly claim
lu grubstake. Burgeois.with his scant out-
j fit tramped over to Nelson. There he
showed his samples, with little encourage-
I ment. Burgeois was decidedly blue and
I discouraged until he run across Colonel
K. S. Topping. Topping hnd been mining
I recorder nnd was running a small store
ut Nelson, lie questioned Burgeois and
I found that the only assay was from the
[Virginia, "Tlie others may do is'tter,"
/he reasoned. "It 's clean ore nnd the veins
(\nre big."
'Hie  outcome   was  that   Burgeois   and
Topping made  a  "dicker."  Topping  was
to pay the fees for locating the live claims
land was to have his choice of one of the
'properties.  Burgeois cams  buck   to Trail
I creek, stripped tiff the iron cupping, put
I in a few shots nnd found clean ore above
[Mhe fir roots.   Topping followed nnd made
\crude assays,   which   gave   more  eiicour-
I ageing returns:  and the three-Topping.
Burgeois and  Morris���gathered  mound
their  lonely  cninp  lire  nnd   resolved   to
stay with  the strike and  give  it  n   fair
'trial.
That is tlie story ns narrated by Colonel Topping of the discovery of the
mines of Trail creek.
Hurgeois sold his holdings for 115,000
Jpr  (20,000  and  went   up  into  the Fort
^Steele district and  located  n   silver-lead
[(.claim, sold it for $20,000, und then went
to   the   Northwest   Territory,   bought  ii
^oOOO-iicre   ranch   and   sent   buck   eust   to
Canada for his relatives.    The dream of
his lifo has been realized: lie has "struck
it rich" and settled down."
Manis carried .$10,000 to $12,000. out of
the camp, came down to Bpokane, married
a sehiKjl teacher anil bought a home on
Hie north side and has since become a
farmer.
In the full of 1800 George Ml Iforster
was ot Colville trying u lawsuit, and became interested in the Le Koi. He entered into n bond with Topping whereby
he agreed, iu consideration of fourteen*
sixteenths of tlie mine, to expend $2000 ill
development work. Forster ret Hilled to
Spokane and took iu upon the deal Colonel I. X. Peyton <>f Spokune. George Turner, Oliver Durant. W. M. Hidputh ami
Alexander Turbid. Colonel Peyton after
winds Iniught Topping's remaining interest, dividing it among a few of his friends,
Chiefly in Danville. 111.
About two years and u half ago the
stis'k in the l.e Koi was being peddled
about the city for 50 cents a sluue nml

I.unlit liulch.
This   phenomenally   high-grade   silver
district is again coining to tlie front, lt
includes u section of country along Lump
creek in the northern part of Jefferson
county, Montmia, probably six or seven
miles in length by lour or live in width.
When prospected but slightly on tlie surface by men of limited means, tlie full of
silver caused nn abandonment of many
promising claims and the final shutting
down of most of the producing mines. The
Liverpool, Little Nell nnd one or two other properties were worked in a desultory
manner, hut the life and spirit hud gone
out of the district. Hut of lute then' has
been a pronounced revival. The discovery of new nml Valuable ore bodies in va-
lions properties has created new interest
in the district. The extraction of high-
grade ore from the Crescent hus been followed by the developments on the Rose.
Tin latter property, under bond nnd lease
to (Jeorge Hollenbuek, hns been developed
by a tunnel which caught the vein when
in 100 feet, a fine body of ore being uncovered.     When   through   this  the   vein
was drifted on for 150 feet without ore;
then another body of ore was discovered,
which is nearly 40 feet wide, with no evidence  of  diminution.     New   ore  chutes
huve been uncovered on the Little Alma,
and the Hope has taken on new activity.
A do/en other properties have lieen taken
in hand for extensive development.
The  Lily May.
The Lily May company hus finally ratified the sulc of the property to the Eng-
lish company just formed in Ijondon by
Harry   White  to  operate   a  numlier   of
Rossland properties.   Tlie deal includes a
ciish payment of $50,000 and 10 per cent
in the stock of tlie new eompuny, which
will be capitalized at  .CSO.OOO.   A part of
the cash payment has already been made,
and the balance is to be paid on or before
June 15.   Harry White, the organizer of
the new company, says that he will be in
shape  to   commence   operations   on   the
property by the first of next month, if
necessary.    Tlie Lily  May is famous as
tlie first location in the Rossland camp.
It lies in tlie south licit on the south slope
of Deer Park mountain, and is just along
the line of tlie Dewdney trail, lt was this
proximity to the Dewdney trail that led
to its location, as prospectors going over
tlie trail happened upon some promising
galena lloat,  with .the  result  that  they
followed it and staked tlie ledge, wliich
was found near by. The location was subsequently abandoned by the original locators and for some time lay idle, when
some of the strikes on Red mountain led
to its being rcstuked for its gold values.
The Lily May company was subsequently
organised to operate it, and has done several hundred feet of work on the ledge
with excellent results.    There is a complete compressor plant at the mine.
Placers In  Pierce District.
As a result of the bountiful supply ot
waler in  the  Fierce  district  the  placer
miners are reaping a harvest, and some
good clean-ups have already been mude.
The other dny  two miners brought out
about 110 ounces, their first clenii-up after
about 00 days' work.   They returned the
following day, ex|iecting to make a much
larger clean-up before the water supply
becomes too low for mining purposes. Tlie
snow is all gone in and about, Fierce, but
the  highest mountains are still  covered
with a good depth of snow, which will
continue  to replenish  the  reservoirs for
some time yet.   The greatest activity in
placer mining appeal's to be in the west-
em portion of the district, in the vicinity
of Snake break.   In this territory a number of good claims that prospect from 40
to 00 cents per yard are bing worked, and
are  hy  means  experiments,  as  most  of
them produced well last season, and contributed in no small way towards swelling the output of the camp to the .$150.-
000 murk. There is ulso u renewal of
woik in the Swamp Creek district, that
already indicates that this portion of the
district, which lias been idle for some
time, will be worked for all it is worth
this senson, und the actual worth of the
dirt mude known. Reports from all parts
of the district confirm the news thut more
placer mining is under headway this sen-
son thnn for some yenrs.
Southern Oreiion.
Quartz mining in southern Oregon had
its beginning in the discovery of the
I Hicks lodge ou Jackson creek in 1850. lt
proved to be a pocket, but quite' a sung
little sum was taken out by Neeora Hicks
and S. R. Taylor. Gold bill was the next
noted Iimi in the way of quint/., lt wns
discovered iu January, 1880, by Messrs.
Hays ami Graham, and before il was
abandoned had produced some $200,000.
Henry Klip-ad und others bud purchased
the mine within tt week ufter its discuv-
cry, for n good round sum. The discovery of the Cold hill ledge quickly led to
further quart/, discoveries, und among
others the fowler, which yielded $315,-
000: Uie Jewett) .$40,000; Hlnckwell. $10,-

California's fruit crop, like her wheat
crop is to be almost u total failure. The
dry spring has wrought great havoc with
her orchards. Her production this year
will be cut down to the smallest amount.
This offers opportunity for Washington
fruit to become popular in the great markets of the east. Lust year the orchard
ists of the inland Empire sent a few
shipments to Chicago. There the commission men reported the fruit to be certainly of a better quality than the California fruit, but because of un-unifonn
und inferior packing it commanded a less
price thnn the California product This
mutter of proper and uniform packing
and grading is one to wliich our orchard-
ists can not pay too much attention. The
sale of the fruit depends on it. Uniform
and attractive packages and a proper
grading does more to find purchasers than
quality alone, if iu methods of packing
our orcluirdists come up to the California
orcliaidists a Sale ut high juices is assured this year. Without good packing
we will lose our chance of taking the place
of California in the eastern market.

Ed Smith, chief clerk of the state land
board, is a member of the nationvl guard.
He has felt it his duty to resign and go

Consequently he tendered his resignation
to the board. While his motive was
much appreciated, the board felt that it
would he impossible to release him without causing much confusion aud possible
loss, as he is the only one familiar with
thc details of the state's complicated lantl
business. Consequently thc board refused
to accept the resignation.
It seems probable from the action of
the state land board at Boise, that the
state's holdings in the white pine belt
will soon be placed on the market. This
will be followed, if a satisfactory price can
be reached, by the speedy completion of

of immense saw mills for the manufacture
of the timber. After a full discussion of
tlie matter the following resolution was
adopted: "Resolved, That the lands heretofore selected by the state in what is
known as tlie white pine belt, in Lutnh
and Shoshone counties, and aggregating
79,020 acres, together with tlie timber
thereon, be appraised at the earliest possible date, and tliat two or more capable
persons be appointed to appraise tlie same,
and that in making such appraisement
the lands described in the application of
C. H. Bradley, and aggregating 41,200

Key West, Muy 12.���When the United

her deck.
They were the remains of Ensign W.
Bugley and four members of the crew of
the torpedo boat Winslow, who were kill,
ed in an engagement in Cardenas harbor
yesterday. The bodies were covered by
the stars and stripes.
In the cabin of tlie Hudson was Lieutenant J. B. Bernadon, commander ol the
Winslow, who is slightly wounded in tlie
left leg, and several others of the Wins-
low's crew who arc injured.

The Fight.
The engagement took place inside the
lirhor of Cardenas. The gunboat Wilmington, torpedo boat Winslow and gun-
bout Hudson were the only vessels en-
gnged. They entered the harbor for the
purpose of attacking some Spanish gunboats known to be tliere. These latter,
however, were not discovered by the
American force until the Spaniards opened fire. The hind butteries of Cardenas
supported the lire of the Spunish gunboats.
The engagement commenced at 2:05 p.
m. and lusted for uliout au hour. The
battle, while it lusted, was terrific. The
Wilmington und Hudson were ahead, and
opened lire on tlie Spanish bouts, which
were lying nt thc dock. The firing begun
nt a range of 3500 yards. A few minutes
later the Winslow came up nnd also opened lire. In an instant the entire attention
of the Spunish gunboats ami land batteries were directed upon her. From all
sides shot and shell poured in upon the
torpedo boat. Tlie crew of the Winslow,
however, never faltered for a second. At
2:35 a solid shot crushed into the hull ot
the Winslow und knocked out her boiler.
In a moment she begun to roll und rock
helplessly. Tliere wus a moment of awful
suspense ,und then a fierce cheer of triumph went up from the Spaniards on the
gunboats nnd in the butteries. A storm of
fire was opened upon the helpless bout.
The gunboat Hudson, lying near by, started to the assistance of tlie Winslow. She
run alongside the torpedo bout nnd tried
to throw a line to the imperiled crew.
Up to this time, with the exception of
tlie one shot which disabled the boilers of
the Winslow, the firing of the Spanish
gnnbonts hnd been wild, but ns the Winslow lay rolling in the water, *he range
grew closer and shells begun to explode nil
about her. It was difficult for thc Hudson
to get near the Winslow so terrible was
the fire all about her, Finally, after 20
minutes, the Hudson approached! near
enough to throw a line. Ensign Bagley
snd six men were standing in n group on
thc deck of the Winslow ready to catch
tlie rope. The line was thrown, and tlbout
the same instant a shell bunt in the"very
midst of the group of men on board the
[ Winslow. Bugley wus instnntly killed
lund u few others dropped uhout him. Half
a dozen more fell groaning on the bloodstained deck. One of the men plunged
headlong over the side of the bout,.hut
j his feet caught in the iron rail und benras
hauled buck. ltnglcy's hotly was stretched
; on the deck with his face completely torn
' away und the upper pnrt of his bodj shattered.
When Hie shell burst iu the group on
board the Winslow another wild -hoof el
triumph went up from  the Spunish Infills
uml batteries, and again s heavy fire 4m
; opened on the torpedo boat. Finally the
Hudson   succeeded   ill   gelling   u   line   on
I board the Winslow und was towing ber
out of the deadly range when the line
palled, and again both limits were at the
mercy of the Spanish fire. At SiOJ p. m.
the Hudson managed to get another line
on the deck of the Window anil the damaged torpedo boat was lowed to Pedrts
Island, where her deud nnd wounded were
I removed. At 0:15 yesterday evening the
| Hudson, with the dend bodies nnd some of
i the wounded, started for Key West, where
I she arrived this morning.
