Key West, April 28 - The large
Spanish transport steamer Guido,
bound from Corunua for Havana,
with a large cargo ot arms, provisions and money for the Spanish
troops at Havana, was captured at
an early hour yesterday morning in
an attempt to run the blockade.
The chase was exciting, and the
Spaniard gave up only when a solid
shot brought her around.

A sensation was caused in Loudon
today by the action o*' the Portugese government in stopping the
transmission of all telegraphic reports going out as to the movements of the Spanish war vessels
now at St. Vincent. Thin action
plainly reveals the fact that Portugal proposes doing everything
possible to aid Spain in her war with
the United States. The Spanish
fleet seems to have paid no attention to the published demands of
Portugal that it leave St. Vincent,
though the time limit has passed
Throughout Portugal an intense
feeling of sympathy with Spain exists, and direct aid in case the war
noes against Spain would not be
surprising.
The Russian press is still clamoring for intervention by the powers.

Cape Verde Is'ands, April 28.--
Although the Spanish squadron is
still anchored here it, is believed that
the warships will probably sail tomorrow, as paymasters are settling
up accounts today. The destination
of the fleet, is carefully guarded, but
it is thought that it will sail directly
to Havana.

EVENING PAPER
An annuncement in last night's
KooTKNiAN'AN leaves nothing to be
said here by way of introducing the
Evening Kootenai an.
To repeat, it is to be .a permanent institutioi , and though modest at beginning, will speedily
blossom into, something yore, pre:
• teniious." ltr will"ret|WirW a little
time to establish a special and general news service, but the task is
already under vv; y and will result
in giving Kaslo a first-class daily
paper within a very few days. In
the meantime a very complete telegraphic digest of the war news will,
we hope, satisfy in a measure the
wants of Kaslo newspaper readers
tntil arrangements lor a more complete news service can be arranged.
1 f the redistribution bill is robbery
piled upon seven kinds of injustice,
as claimed by the opposition, why
does not that precious band of office
seekers let it go through and get
their reward in the decision of the
people? The fact is that the bill is
giing trnugh, and the govern'
ment vvill nut suffer. The opposition knows th's: their cry is not in
the interest, of the public, but in
the inter st of the opposition.
That redi tri ration bill is a nightmare to them.
Despite protests on redistribu-
bution and the exultant, mouthings
of the opposition, there is not a
question that the government is
daily growing stronger and will be
returned with a good working majority when the elections are
brought on. Pefonal abuse and
small, scurvy methocs have si o vn
up the opposition orew at Victoria
in its true light.
* 	
That fellow—Senor What's-his-
naine — the fellow who challenged
Lee and Sigsbee—profited during
his stay in Washington to the extent of learning a thing or two
about  advertising.     He   probably
turned the names and addresses of
the 900 accepting substitutes over
to the patent medicine men at a
pretty speck.
Again ail legislation and work in
the house is being blocked bv the
opposition. The interests of the
country are being made to suffer
by obstruction actuated bv fear j
that a measure upon which the
government is willing to stand, will
result disastrously to opposition
hopes.
Mr. Forsters attack upon Col.
Baker in the house last Tuesday
brands that opposition luminary as
a bully and a coward. Col. Baker's
reply was well given; it was dignified
and well merited by the blackguard
who evoked it.
Hewitt Rostock. M. P.. it. will be
noticed, is invariably tound on the
right side of every proposition at'-
f cting the interests of his constituents. Mr. liostock is the right
man in the riu'ht nhice.
Though small at ueginning, the
Evening Kootenaian will be made
up entirely from fresh news. The
non-arrival of the Spokesman-lie-1
view will have no effect upon our
telegraphic service.
The once popular song, " Old
Madrid," now has a good and vaid
excuse for oeing no longer heard in

return, ujaking no bargain, exacting
no price, the. mother country has
fended off the one contingency which
threatened the success of the daugii--
ter country, and made it, plain that
outsiders wiio interfered in the affair
wouid have on their hands a trial of
strength with the English-speaking
