Admiral Sir Qeot-go Elliott, K.C.B.,
late commander-in-chief at Portsmouth,
and one of the mont dlsHhguished of
living British admirals, bus the following
to say iu regard to tlit* probftbli naval
Btrntogy of -Spain: " I think tlie nav-il
Btrategy of Bpaln wiil ha to allow the
Doited Btates Meet to attack thc furls of
Havana, if they aro bo unwise, also to
land troops on tha south sido ot the
inland, trusting to "yellow fever to fight
them. _^Spain will then defend nor fortified placeaj but as Havana is, I undor-
b ami, flhort in provisions, a blockade-
would soon distress tho garrison. Thereupon the Spanish fleet would come to
relieve tho blockade and there the sea
light would be.   That i? my prophecy."
Tho U. S. war department will adopt
a system of identification of thoso who
may fail in battle ia Cuba. The experience of the late war shored that many
men who were killed wero subsequently
buried by men of other organizations,
and that the means of identification were
oftentimes lacking. This accounts for
the innumorablu unmarked graves in the
national comoteriefl. Tlie pad circumstance has suggested to tho military
authorities the necessity of establishing
a method by which llio mon of tlie
volunteer and regular force who are sent
to Culm may bo identified -iWr death.

Gold Discoveries In Scotland.

digging a trench in a newly-phm,;hecl
field, at a depth of cloven feet, Struck a
stratum ot brown ore in which he noticed
a large number of glittering yellow
specks. The possibility of a Scotch

he collected somo of the ore aud showed
It to the estate factor, who, on submitting to analysis, found it to bs almost
pure gold.
Thc news quickly Bpread, and ere lonj:
a number of curious visitors from Stranraer and neighboring towns assembled
to see the now gold field, which, according to one who has hail experience in
South Africa, ia almost identical in
appearance with the Transvaal mines.
Development is proceeding and tho
ground ia being examined by a mlulng
engineer, and great hopes are being
raised that the soil ib rich enough to
make systematic working prof ft able,
which U not improbable,considering tha
past history of gold mining in Scotland.

The mines of Gannda during tho last
half of th* past year are said to have
brought more money into the country
by about two and a quarter million dol-

the country for twenty years lias been
directed towards fostering the bitter
Industry, while the former h.u been left
to take caro of itself. The fisheries have
been carefully guarded, yot th-ir exports
fell $520,000 behind those of the minus,
and the exports from the forests woro
but two ami a half times as much.

expectant animalfoti in Kast Kootenay,
and there won't this year, aa at the
period of the las*, provincial general
idecti in, be there found such a big array
*..i mon eagerly pleading for provincial
government work on tlio mads, if only
u-iit i.i i nature of these purchases.
'I "In the lirst place the purchases ill
ibo Ilosshind district include tho following claims: Lucky Queen, Surprise,
You Know, Number One, Uoeklnghnm,
West I.e ltoi, Tliekla, Poormait, Nickel
I late, Oreornogu, (iolden Chariot, Great

I5ng)e, il is also announced ilellnitely
by tlie corporation thai tin. .losio bud
been bough I; lull only ,i controlling
interest lias been us yet obtained by tlie
purchase of shares in the local company,
Wo learn from well-informed sources
that theso purchases were made at lhe
rate of $200,000 for the whole property,
it may bu well to remember that the
vendors of tliis mine have worked it at
a loss and are in debt to a considerable
amount; and it is fair to presume Unit
they worked il at least as well as a new
company could.
" Among the properties named above
will he noticed the Columbia and Kootonay claims, ll is well known that Mr.
V. A. lionize hud a bond ou these claims,
and after working them for some months
threw up Ids bond and forfeited his
deposit, us the average of the ore did not
command of the party despatched next
morning to (ind tliom. On reaching tho
place where the mon hud iur.de .heir last
stand lie found I'l.lead bodies. All tlieir
rillcs were of course stolen by the Afl'idls.
Here conies tbe point of thu story.
After firing his last cartridge, each man
of the 18 removed tlio breech-holt of bis
rifle and threw it lis far us lie could, so
tlmt tho rifle, whicli ho knew would lie
used against his countrymen, might be
rendered useless. Kvery one of these 18
bolts was recovered hy tlie young officer
in command of the search party. The
last thought of these men before they
laid down their lives was not for themselves, but ior tlieir countrymen and
comrades; It is good to belong to tlie
race capable of such things.
