Chickaniauga Park, Chattanooga, Oa.,
July 4.—Late yesterday -afternoon an order arrived from the war department to
General Brooke, directing him to designate about 20,000 men for immediate de*
jKirture to the south, and at onee there
was great excitement and hustle in the
oamp. (Jeneral Brooke declined to make

Xew York, July 4.—A dispatch to the
Herald from oil Santiago, via Playa del
Este, July 2, says j
Three vessels of Admiral Sampson's
fleet have just returned from an adventurous expedition to Mnnzanillo, during
which they sank two Spanish gunboats,
one sloop and one pontoon, disabled a
Spanish torpedo boat, considerably damaged several of the enemy's gunboats aud
compelled thc captain of a troop ship to
run towards shore.
I     One of Admiral Sampson's vessels, the
Hist, wiih struck  II  times and nnother,
j tho Hornet, was disabled by a shell which
hit her main stem-pipe.   She was towed
lout of danger.
I     Admiral   Sampson  sent   the   Hist,   the
I Hornet and the vYampatuck to ManzAntllo
; to destroy four Spanish gunboats whicli
the admiral had been Informed were lying
in that harbor. Instead of encountering
that number of vessels the Americans encountered nine vessels, including a torpedo boat and cruiser. They also found
the most of the vessels flanked by the
land batteries and armed pontoons, while
a heavy battery of artillery wns in position on the water front to aid in making
warm the reception of Sampson's vessels.
Hornet Hit l»   a .Shell.
When the firing was tlie hottest a shell
went scurrying in the direction of the
Hornet striking in the stern-pipe of that
vessel, scattering over the deck and doing
great damage. As soon as the Hist ami
(he Wampatuck discovered that the Hornet was disabled their captains decided It
would be useless to fight longer against
such a superior enemy. Accordingly the
Wampatuck hastened to the rescue of the
Hornet, thc. Hist meantime keeping up
its sharpest flre. After the Wampatuck
had succeeded in getting a line on tlie
Hornet she steamed out to sea with the
disabled vessel in tow. The Hist followed
dost! after, pouring shot at the enemy
until out of range.
During the engagement the American
vessels succeeded in sinking one of the
Spanish gunboats, one sloop and damaging one torpedo boat. They also did much
damage lo several gunboats in the harbor
and made a marked impression on the
Spanish land batteries.
As if this was not enough excitement
for one small auxiliary cruiser, the Hist
poked her nose into Neguira bay and discovered a Spanish gunboat lying there.
She immediately opened flre on the Spaniard, which taken so completely by surprise, replied feebly and inaccurately. She
was sunk by the Hist in 10 minutes.
ARiiiiifililo Acts Humanely.
Washington, June 30.—The navy department today made public the following cablegram from Admiral Dewey,
brought by the McCulloch to Hong Kong
and though undated supposed to have
been sent from Cavite June 23rd:
"No change in the situation since my
telegram of June 17. Five German, three
British, one French and one Japanese
men-of-war are in port. Tlie insurgents
are constantly closing in on the city.
Aguinaldo, thc insurgent leader, with 13
of his staff arrived May 19, by my permission on the Nan Shan. He established himself at Cavite outside of the arsenal under the protection of our guns
and organized his army. The progress
of Aguinaldo has been wonderful. He
has invariably conducted the war humanely. My relations with him are cordial, but my conferences have generally
been only of a personal nature."
Merritt Off ai hant.
San Francisco, June 30.—The steamer
Newport, with General Merritt on board,
sailed yesterday for the Philippines.
Grent crowds had gathered to witness the
departure of the vessel. Many tug boats
and yachts chartered for the occasion accompanied the Newport down the bay
out through the Golden Onto into the
Pacific, where the last farewells were
waved to the departing military men
gathered on the deck of the steamer.
General Merritt is very anxious to avoid
nn encounter with any vessel from the
Spanish navy and will issue orders to the
fleet at Honolulu to make all possible
speed to the islands.
Four Killed,  Muny   Wounded.
$helby, Ohio, July 4.—A bridge crossing
the Mohican river here fell this afternoon
with 1000 people. Four were killed outright and a number injured, some of them

Ada Bloodhart of Shelby, aged 12; Frank
Keiekler of Shelby, aged 12.
Attack   mi   Mnn   -Junn.
New York. July 2.—A dispatch to the
Evening World, dated "In lhe Held, two
miles from Santiago, July I," nnd cabled
from Playa del Este, says:
San Juan heights lmve fallen and the
way is now opened for the advance on
Morro castle, lt was a glorious victory,
but very dearly purchased. Tlie place
was the strongest Spanish outpost, well
fortified and valiantly defended. The position was an excellent one. It was also
occupied by barracks and other buildings,
but the American troops stormed the
heights and Spanish valor had to yield to
the bull dog tenacity and courage of thc
Anglo-Saxon.
As I write our troops are swarming up
the hill and covering it like ants. The
Spaniards nre demoralized. The fighting
has been of the hardest kind, and our
troops have suffered severely, but thc enemy's works are in their hands and they
don't count tlie cost.
Kl Qiney is also ours. Tlie general advance, which began at 3 p. m., has been
successful all along the line. After driving thc enemy out of Kl Caney, the troops
took possession of the village and destroyed the Spanish forts by which it had
been defended. Thc Spaniards fled into
Santiago, where they now are. Losses on
both sides are very heavy. Tlie bursting
of a Spanish shell almost annihilated an
entire company of our troops.
The heavy volley firing was heard for
three hours. It seemed to indicate a strong
American advance. There is no artillery
firing from El Caney and only scattering
shots come from San Juan. Both divisions
are   really   in  battle.
The day is clear nnd a moderate breeze
blowing* but there is strong heat. The
troops arc in good condition. The battery has shot 100 rounds, two-thirds shells
and the balance shrapnel. The military
balloon used by the signal corps for the
purpose of obtaining accurate information
as to the location of the enemy and the
character of defenses, proved of inestimable service in the engagement.
In tbo fighting at San Junn a Spanish
shell burst in tho midst of Oap tain Pur-
tie's battery in thc First artillery, wounding several.
Roosevelt's Rough Riders were also in
this fight und bore themselves with as
much credit as in the last four days' battle in the bush. Several Hough Riders
ore wounded.

3:15 a. in.- To the Secretary of the Navy:
Hie fleet under my command offers the

Washington, July 4.—The secretary of
war has received a lengthy and most important dispatch from Shafter, It has
excited much rumor, but the essential
points can be given authoritatively.
It states1 Shaffer's demand for the
surrender of Santiago at noon today ou
pain of bombardment. That thereupon the foreign consuls at Santiago
made a joint representation requesting
that the women and children in the city
havo until Tuesday noon to withdraw
before the bombardment begins. The
Spanish general declined to surrender at
the time first set by Shafter.
At present a truce exists pending the
expiration of the 24 hours asked for by
the foreign consuls. Shafter has given
the Spaniards until noon tomorrow before
he will bombard the town and proceed
to the final and most aggressive operations. Everything is announced to bc very
favorable.

New York, July 4.—A dispatch to the
World from Washington says:
General Miles has received a dispatch
from Lieutenant Colonel Wagner of the
bureau of military information, now at
Sanliiago, in which he states that-General
Pnndo has not formed a junction with
the forces of General Linares.
Pnndp, with 5000 men, is still some distance from Santiago. General Garcia,
with 3000 Cubans, is between Pando antl
Santiago and is successfully resisting his
efforts to reach that city.

Washington, July 4.—General Miles received two^dispatches from Shatter this
morning.   In one Shafter says:
"I feel I am master of the situation
nnd can hold the enemy for any length
of time."
In the other Shafter says:
"My demand for the surrender of Santiago is still being considered by the Spanish authorities."
One of these dispatches was in response
to the congratulations from Miles in the
course of which he said:
"I expect to be with you in one week
with strong reinforcements."
Shafter's answer expressed  delight at
tlie announcement of Miles' coming that
he might see the obstacles encountered.

New York, July 4.—A special to the
World from Washington says:
(Jeneral Miles was buoyant with hope
when he received the news that Santiago
had becn reduced to ruins. He said:
"Hie, news is splendid and puts a most
brilliant aspect upon the situation. While
it may affect the plans of military operations in Santiago very materially, it will
not stop the operations to be carried ou
there.
"The destruction of the city does not
necessarily mean that the Spanish troops
have been driven out, for they were iu
the breastworks surrounding the city and
may not have been dislodged. It may be,
however, that they were demoralized and
wc.ro put to flight. Wc will continue the
plun of sending reinforcements just thc
same. Troops in sufficient numbers will
leave Tampa, Chickaniauga and Camp Alger. I cannot give details at this time.

Make It I.Ike Fourth of July.
"The days preceding Christmas are
punctuated at intervals uilh the sharp
tones of firecrackers, merely to keep the
world from forgetting that Christmas is
almost at hand," writes Julia Truitt Bishop of "Where Christinas is Like Fourth
of July," descriptive of Christmas scenes
and customs iu New Orleans, in the July
Ladies' Home Journal. "One firecracker
at a time is set off, for it is sinful to
waste a whole bunch at once until Christmas eve. Kvery night the tumult increases, a kind of jubilant applause in
mild explosives, a mere intimation of
what is coming later. Every business
house which can under any pretense
'handle' fireworks, handles them by the
ton. Even the windows of the grocery
Stores are filled with them, for the grocer
has recognized that there are people in
New* Orleans who may dispense with roast
turkey stuffed with truffles, but nobody
can do without fireworks. There are
hundreds of children who never hang up
a stocking, but every one of them would
think the world was coming to an end
if there were no fireworks for him on the
one night of all the year."

New York. July 3.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Headquarters of the American Army, via Playa did Kste, Cuba,
suys:
Undaunted by the terrible nud bloody
reception they met yesterday, General
Shafter's men ut daybreak this morning
resumed their tierce assault upou the
Spaniards in Santiago. They pressed forward to the attack with an energy that
augurs certain victory. Cheered by the
advantages gained yesterday, and with
their enthusiasm not at all checked by
the destructive work done by Spanish
Shells in their ranks, our men moved on
wilh grim determination, confident of taking Santiago before nightfall. Less than
a mile lay between them and the city's
inner defenses. To the northeast American troops were pressing in between Caney
and Santiago, and to the south of them
divisions of (Jeneral Shafter's army were
advancing steadily on the city. Between
the two Hues the main body of the army
wus advancing steadily, defiantly, against
the middle eastern section of the city
lines.
Off Santiago tlie flame-clad fleet was
thundering against the harbor butteries.
Every ship in Admiral Sampson's fleet
was engaged in this work of destruction.
Mountains of great white smoke arising
high above the vessels showed how hotly
the American gunners were at work, Ry
land and sea the American forces followed
up yesterday's assault Although the 48
hours desired by General Shafter to capture has expired, the navy vied with the
army in the struggle to make the Spanish
defeat complete within the time named
bv the American commander.
Trouble  Anions  iniinrgcentfi.
Hong Kong, July 2.—According to pri-
ato letters from Cavite, dated June 27,
the insurgents occupy the whole of But-
acan province, occasional skirmishes oc*
lining there. The insurgents captured
the Spanish ship Babul jn Kayabo buy,
while she was landing 500 troops. A stubborn fight occurred, in which the Spanish
commander, a lieutenant colonel, was
killed. The insurgents have captured the
governor of Bulucan, together with his
wife nnd children.
General Aguinaldo plated under arrest
the rebel leaders, Artachio aud Sandico,
for having revealed the fact that thc
steamer Passlg, recently seized by the
Hong Kong authorities, wns laden with
nrms for the insurgents, Sandico appealed
to Consul Williams, and was liberated.
He is now ou board the Xunshun.
It is feared that the incident will cause
a split in the insurgent party, Sandico
being influential uud the only insurgent
leader capable of administration. The In*
suigents fear thut General Aguinaldo will
Bhoot Artachio, unless Admiral Dewey interferes, as lie is suspicious that Sandico
intended to form an opposition party.
Heavy l.oimea of officer*.
Washington, July 5.—A remarkable
feature of the fighting in Cuba, and one
much commented upon in military circles.
is the heavy loss in killed and wounded
of commissioned and non-commissioned officers. In spite of the distress whieh thc
loss of so many ollicers has occasioned,
the jinny officials point to thc list as splendid evidence of the dash and personal
bravery of the men who wear shoulder
straps. Among the killed nnd wounded
since the first fight at Juragua huve been
officers of every grade, from colonel down,
and in numbers said to be almost unprecedented in proportion to the forces engaged. The loss of officers In the two
days' lighting around Santiago demonstrates to military men that the American
officers lead their men wherever Ihey are
called to go.

Owners of copper mines, producing or
giving promise of profitable development,
can view the war und industrial situation with complacency, suys the Mining
and Scientific Press. Next lo reliable
war news nothing is iu more active present demand than copper. As with gold and
other metals, this west half of America
is of prime importance to t'he nation in
this regard. A New York broker saysi
"During the past three years no shares
of any kind of enterprise have shown the
remarkable und steady incrcaso in values
that, the copper shares huve. During the
past yenr und a hull eight of
the leading copper stocks have Increased over |50j000,000, and they
hnve increased over $20,000,000
during the past six months. The total
par value of their capitalization is only
$10,000,000. The Rothschilds uud other
big capitalists of Kurope have agents exploring the entire western continent for
copper properties und a large number ol
English bankers and operators have tlieir
American correspondents looking up copper mines or large blocks of stocks in such
properties fer investment purposes. The
ownership of all the American copper
mines is in the hands of a very few people, and less than 100 American copper
'mine owners control the world's market
for copper. The demand for the metal is
greater thun the supply, the total visible
slock on hand was never so low as now.
and would bc exhausted entirely In two
or three months if the supply was stopped
in any way.'* As things are at present,
it looks as though the world needed copper more than gold. It is predicted that
copper will sell for 1.1 cents before January 1, lNOfl. lt is being produced at a
total cost of less thnn one-half that figure.

Nothing more is needed to show that Editor Boss of the Boundary Groek Times is n
gentleman aud a g*qod politician than the
active part ho took in the government meet-
tiutf at Greenwood, aud the eloquence, with
which such expressions as "liar," "dammed
liar," etc., ad lib., flowed from hiu lips.
The Opposition enn advance not one single
iswue or principle upon whieh the government should be overturned. There is nothing better upon whieh to huso their campaign than a great deal of harsh and unfounded criticism, and au ovor-poweriug desire for office.
It ia said that the reason Jas. Martin
WOUld not go to Greenwood to speak against

room for him in McKane's wagon aud he

IN tlio last ls.no of  the   Ilonndary  Croek
Times appear, the assert Um that Ur. liu... rs,
„f pj-ssland, and John McKane, independent Jn,g^?W ■SrR*?*SSfc,ofSll
government candidate for the legislative assembly from tbis district, were responsible
for Boundary district having been tacked
onto the newly created electondVlintrict In-
ttead of being made a riding hy itself, they
having first suggested the matten to tho gOV"
eminent. This wus only nnother of the
many deliberate mis-statements to which
the opposition has resorted lu theii.»wild attempt to defeat the government by fair
means or foul; hut lu this particular case
the neat little campaign lie was immediately
"nailed to the erow," Mr. McKane himself
being In Greenwood to address a meeting
only two days after its publication and forcing Editor Ross to retract the stutement and
apologize for its utterance in a public meeting, at which Mr. Ross, with a number of his
Ilk, wa« attempting to create a disturbance.
ONE of the strongest points which the
oppositionists have bepp attempting to
uiuke lu the present compaign Is the manner In whieh the government has been ex*
pending the money in the various "districts.
It is stated that they have wasted It, uud
even  worse Is hinted ut.   Such statements
ure rather extraordinary in view ofthe fact
thut in ten yeurs of scrupulous und exuctlug
criticism thc opposition Ims fulled to point
OUt one single important instance In which
their claims bnve been established. It Is
strange that In ull this tlipejthe rocords of
the house do nut show a single Investigation
or a proof to establish these statements.
They dure to m;ike nothing more thun vague
nisertloiis. A speclflcchurge hus uever been
laid or a specific wrong alleged. Sijrely In
the face of these facts the^op()ositlou should
blush to insinuate what they huve never hud
tbe courage to nt tempt to prove.
As an instance'of the udvautage to be
gained by this district being represented iu
the next provincial assembly by u muu who
Is In sympathy with the government may be
cited the fact that Kootenay, represented by
n government roan J has In the last ten years
paid the province u revenue of 1980,000 und
has lu the same time had expended in improvements ubout |040,000, or over two-thlyds
of the revenue received; while Bast Yale
with an opposition representative, bv- in
the same time paid hundreds of thousands
of dollars In revenue and hatjfecelved In return less than one-tenth that amount in improvements. Under these circumstances, can
any man whjO has the infarcts of the dfs-
trlct at'heart think it adviseable tg send as
our representative a man who is opposed to
the government tooth and nail, and who can
of courseexpect no concessions from it whnt-

JI 8ff ONE
Joint Debate of the  Candidates.
WAS    WELL   ATTENDED
And the Urge Crowd Listened With
Interest to an Exposition  of
the Oovernment's Policy.
The meeting called lost Saturday night In
Victoria hall, for the purpose of hearing
from Mr. McKane. the independent government candidate, an exposition of hU views
nnd tbe platform on which he asks the mif -
ferage of the voters of the Boundary country, was a marked contrast to that held tho
evening before by his opponent, Mr. Jas.
Martin, there being present a large majority of the voters uf this sectlott and a great
deal of enthusiasm being manifested.
Tho meet ing was called to order by Mayor
Davis who was placed In the chair nud after
a short speech setting forth the objects of
the meeting Introduced Judge W.J. Nelson,
of Rossland, who expressed greut pleasure
at Ixung able to speak In McKane's behalf in
Grand Forks, and he WM more pleased to
have the opportunity of nu eting lu Joint debate Mr. Martin, who like the Spanish Ileet
before belug bottled up lu Santiago harbor,
had so far succeeded in eluding the government speakers.
He appeared, he said, in behalf of a mau
who, if elected, would place tbe Interests of
his constituency first and that of the government seeoud. After reading a portion
of the manifesto Issued by Premier Turner,
showing the amount of revenue received by
the government from the Kootenay district
during the last ten years to have been $980,-
000 while In the »amo time over 1600,000, or
over two-thirds of the revenue, had been expended in Improvements whloh had so greatly opened up the district that almost half of
the $930,000 revenue had been received during the last two years. This was the kind of
a government the opposition wanted to
overthrow.
Such a policy aB that of the Turner government wuh what was wanted to open up the
vast mineral resources of the Boundary
country. The general policy of the government had always been one of progresi and
advancement they had faith In the province
and bad always worked for tho best interests of every pari of It, not for any particular sectiou.
He then proceeded to examine the policy
of the opposition, showing that they could
not-of era single reason for the overthrow
of the present government, that they promised nothing whatever If they were placed
In power, and that their whole campaign
was confined, not to dfcbate and argument
but to a continual round of abuse and criticism of the government and Its leaders.
Taking up the matter of the tax on working miners, about which the opposition has
made such a howl, he said that Mr. McKar.e
would favor the removal of the tax from
miners employed in the mines under ground
but that he thought it should be maintained
on prospectors. As to the tax on mortgages
us administered at present it was a tax paid
by the poor man who was forced to mortgage his property, and Mr. McKane would
favor Its abolutlon, as soon as possible without Injuring too severely the revenues of the
province. (
The government, everyone conceded was
certain to be returned, and eveu it an oppositionist was elected from this district he
would have uo Influence with the government and could not gain for u<.tlje concessions which oould be obtained by a man iu
sympathy with the government. And this
matter should not be a question of party or
personal feeling but of the best Interests of
the district/-.* a whole.
He then took up Mr. McKane's platform
and showed the advantages to be gained by
such a policy as outlined. He closed by predicting a sure victory for Mr. McKane on the
C(h.
Jas. Martin was then Introduced and he
scolded and fumed for some time, roasted
the government, Mr* McKane, the G. P. R.
and everybody else, but did not advance any
arguments in his jiwn favor or produce any
proof of his rather wild aqd rumbling statements.
After Martin hud'finished his tirade, Mr.
McKane was introduced and explained that
his candidacy as an independent government supporter meant tliat he would not
follow the erack of the government whip in
eVery thing, but would support any measure, no matter by whom brought forward,
which would be for the best interests of the
district.
The opposition claimed that the government had no platform. He claimed that the
government bad a policy and It was oue which
meant progress and prosperity for the entire province. On the other hand the policy
of the opposition seemed to be confined to
criticism of the government, they had maligned the government at every turn.
Taking up tbe railway question he showed
that the charter asked for by Mr. Corbin allowed him seven years iu whioh to complete
his road and two In which to begin operations, while the 0. P. R. had agreed that If
Corbin's charter was not allowed they would
build their line at onee, and they were now
•-. at work. So that in reality the railway
''■ question, which had been a sore spot with
the voters of this district was not so bad as
It had seemed.
The opposition had raised a great bowl
about the province being gerrymandered,
but It waff not. Iu 1894, when the last election
took place, the government had polled 17,-
(167 votes-against the opposition's 18,518, or a
majority of 4,000. He could not see much of
a gerrymander about that.
They had also howled that the government
was running us Into debt. "True there was
an excess of 948,000 expenditure over the revenue, but tbe government had built over
8PQ miles of railway and had more building.
And any government which would not go
ahead and develop the province would be recreant to Its duty.
Iu conclusion he said that he was not here
to discuss matters at length, but to ask the
electors to vote for whoever tbey considered
could best represent their interests In the
assembly.
Mr. Hay, of Upper Grand Forks wns then
introduced and talked at some length
on all kinds of subjects. We have all heard
one of Mr. Hay's speeches so it Is unnecessary to give a synopsis of what he said. It
was simply a repetition ofthe tirade of Mr.
Martin, only a little more drawn out, and a
little more abusive.
Mr. McKane again took the floor and
urged tbe people of (iii; Boundary country
to cast politics to the winds and work for
j he best interests of the district. There bad
been too much coust legislation, Victoria
and Vancouver had fought each other too
long. They must be made to recognise that
we huve here the greatest district in the
province, if not In all Canada.
Mayor Davis, the chairman, then made a
short speech, expressing his pleasure at the
success of the meeting. A vote of thanks
was then tendered i\\\\y for the mauuer in
which he had fulfilled the duties of his position, and thp meeting adjourned.
A meeting, was held in Reudelt's, hall at
GrpRiiwood.^last Monday evening for the
purpose of allowing Mr. McKane to state his
position and platform to the elector* of the
I Boundary Creek country, and a large num-
I ber of the voters were in attendance.
I Duncan Ross, editor of the Boundury
j Creek Times, Lawyer Black uud a number of
| others organized a crowd of rowdies and attempted to break up the meeting and hiss
the speakers from the hall; but in this they
were not successful, Messrs, McKane aud
Nelson winning the attention aud sympathy
of the more orderly portion of the audience,
aud pouring hot shot into the ranks of the
disturbers until they were glad to give lt up
as a bad job. It Is safe to say the action of
tho parties who (attempted to break up
this meeting will do the opposition cause no
good and undoubtedly will do harm, but It
is by just such manouvers as this that the
opposition expects tn achieve success so they
are doubtless well satisfied with the result
of their actions.
After tho disturbing element had quieted
down the government candidate and his coworker guve the electors a comprehensive
exposition of the government's policy and
the Intentions of the candidate if elected.

We sat in our sanctum the other evening- trying vainly to devise some means whereby tho
back-biting association could be killed otl', und
John Manly and Chas. Hay could be induced
to bury the hatchet and work in harmony; tho

We have just received from Rossland most authentic information that Jim Martin, the "workingman's friend," the man
with the Chinese plank in his platform, EMPLOYS A
CHINESE COOK AND LAUNDRYMAN. He recently
offered $2 per day for assessment work, and $2.50 for a
blacksmith, One of the best and most experienced men in
Martin Bros, establishment, at Rossland, receives the munificent renumeratlon of $15 per week, and the reputation of the
firm regarding wages is by nc means good. Talking of double-
dyed hypocrits! What's the matter with Jim Martin, the
workingman's Jonah.
lature, which might tend to assist In develop-
in? Its mineral resources, advancing its material
Interests or improving tlie conditions and lessening the burdens of the miner and prospector.
1 believe that I shall, by adopting this principle, be In a better position to further the Interest Of this Riding, and to advocate measures for
Its benefit, than If I had been elected as a strict
Government supporter. In fact, iu assuming
this position I am carrying out the advice of
Premier Turner, who. in his letter to tho electors of Kootenay, adviset* them to send to the
Legislature "Good men. who will make 'KOOTENAY' not'PARTY' their first consideration."
Being fully convinced that this is the proper
cour.se for your representative to pursue, I shall.
If elected, frequently consult you with regard
to the Legislative or other requirements, of tlio
Hiding, so that I may carry out your withes to
the fullest extent, untrammelled by strict party
ties.
It Is impossible for me in Ihe limits of this address to fully outline thc reforms which I will
advocate In the Legislature as tending to benefit thc electors of the District. All my interests
are here; 1 am the owner of mining property In
all parts of the District. It therefore follows
that our Interests arc Identical.
Borne of the reforms to which I will give my
attention are:
1. I peldge myself to work to the best of my
ability to secure the local expenditure of public
moneys In proportion to the revenue collected In
the District, and to Insure sueh expenditure being laid out to Ihe best possible advantage.
•l. The mining Interests of liritish Columbia
have now reached proportions that it fa desirable they should be administered by a separate
department under thc charge of u minister who
would devote his undlvded attention to the sub*
|eci. I shall use my i-tloi is to have such a Portfolio created, with a Minister of Mines at its
head.
3, I shall ulso advocate the removal from the
Sta'uc Book.of the discriminatory tax of Five
Dollars per annum on mechanics, miners and
others employed In our metalliferous mines.
4. Also a change Iti the Mineral Act to compel all partners iu a mining claim to bear their
share of the assessment work or forfeit their Interest.
Ci. I shall endeavor to rescind the legislation
of '06 by whicli mining units were taken out of
the Jurisdiction of thc County Court and rele-
gatcd to the Supreme Court, thereby entailing
Increased costs und great delay.
6. I favortheabotltfonof the so-culled "Mortgage Tax" at the earliest practicable date, having regard to the revenue requirements of the
Province.
7. I am in sympathy with the principle enunciated In tho "Truck Act" und shall ever advo
cato every other like measure, which may have
for Its obiect the amelioration of the condition
of the miners, meehanies and workmen of the
District, also all measures which will tend to
simplify and make less pnerops on prospectors
aud locators, the mining laws and regulations.
8. I shnll advocate increased representation
for this Riding, keeping prominently before me
the great needs of tho lioundary district.
It Is now generally conceded tbat the Government led by the Hon. J. II. Turner, will bo returned to power by a majority even larger thau
existed heretofore. It Is therefore to the Interest ol the electors, and the progress and development of the Province, that a representative should be sent to the legislature, who is ln
touch with that Government.
If elected, JI shall endeavor to faithfully and
Impartially perform the onerous duties which
will necessary be required of tho representative
of a District rich In mineral resources, and which
requires, more than any other part of thc Province, liberal grants, to aid iu its devclonment.
I recommend every elector, more especially
the eleetors of thc Boundary country, to read
Premier Turner's le ter to the Rossland Convention of Independent Government Supporters,
ut which convention I received my nomination,
I would thut I could Include It lu thc limits of
this address. The facts therein stated ure of
vital Interest to every elector.
In conclusion I respectfully solicit vour votes
and influence.        Yours sincerely,
JOHN McKANE.

to one iimn, and thou you get soup half the

"Didn't sec mc when you was over? 1 saw
you, but you wasn't travelling in my class.
And, by the way, that's what I came to seo you
about. I hear you're out for that fellow, McKane.
Now, see here what do you waut to support him
for?
"Cause he's the best man?
"Now, don't you never think It. Martin's the
man for the Boundary country. Why, there's
one plank in his platform that ought to be
enough to elect two or tlxttic men like him."
"Whicli one is that?"
'•Well, you area lulu. Just take his platform
and read plunk five, where he pledges to work
for
"The Discouragement of Immigration, and
Employment of Orientals,"
"Now. there's a plunk for you. Jim's an old
Caribooite himself and can appreciate the terrible agony which it causes a 'squaw man'
to have to live ln a country as overcrowded as
this section Is, where the towns aro only about
ten or twelve mllcsa part, and one can't go a
mile In any direction without seuing a man aud
sometimes two or three. It Is getting fearful
and a man can't get any privacy at nil any
more; but Jim, our Liberal Jim, is going to fix
things up for usi When bo gets Into the legislature he's going to discourage immigration,
and chut the blooming foreigners out of the
country.
"McKane wouldn't put such a thing In his
platform, Not he, What does he care for the
poor old timers who aro being crowded out by
competition? Nothing! Why, he even has the
gall to say that If he is elected he will do everything he cau to open up tbe country and bring
peoplo in. Are we going to vote for a man who
will do that? Not wllh a Oppositionist! We dou't
waut the country overcrowded.
"Theu there's that Chinese question. McKane
would let the whites do;thc work, while Martin
js straight out for the 'employment of Orientals.'
That's the way it ought to be. The heathens
ain't good for anything else but work, and a
white man wasn't never meant to have work
anyhow; leastwise It there's Chinese to bo had—
and then thc Chinese are cheaper. I say hire
all you can of 'em and then there'll \><\ that
many )ess whites that will have to work, and
that's the way Jim looks at lt too.
"Another thing yoa want to look after, that
fellow McKane's too awful extravagant. Just
think of (ilm hiring a rig, at his owu expense,
and coming through the country, when he could
just as well as not have bummed a ride oil' of
somebody. That's thc way Liberal Jim did.
You dou't catch htm westing his good money
on rigs, not much! Why, he walked from Greenwood to Greenwood camp to ride hero with thc
C. P. R. right of way party—and say, hut didn't
he give it to the 0. P. R. In his speeches. McKane wouldn't have the gall to do such a thing.
But Liberal Jim's not afraid of them, tic's just
the kind to give 'cm fits one night and ride free
with Ilium next day.
"Oh, we're going to have a regular walk-over
and if you kuow what's gopd for you'd better
come Iu onto! the wet. Talk of them electing
John McKane! Why, they can't even havo a
meeting without some of our boys getting iu
ami malting such a racket they can't let thc
people know what a good thing they are oilor-
iim thein. What do wo (Jo it for? i)aug tt all,
man, we've got to do it. If wo let thu people
lind out onee what tho government has really
done fur ihem we wouldn't get a dozen votes in
this district; but you can Just bet that wu ain't
going to let |ii|ii lind out If bowing 'lubber,'
'thief and 'outraged innoconcc' will do anything toward stopping them.
"Well, bo long. I've just got time to catch
the Strict & Walker stage for Midway, and I've
piomised sure I'd bc ovcr there to-morrow ulght
to help Ross aud Hiack and the rest of the gang
to break up a government meeting, that some
of thc blamed idots are going to get up."
Aud ho hurried away, humming to himself:
"We'll hang Johu McKane to a Bull Pino Tree,"
which, we understand, is now thc lptast popular spiigat Qrcenwood.

GLORIOUS   FOURTH.
Celebrated in Fitting Style by Our Yankee
Friends at Nelson-, Wash,
Tho Fourth of July celebration at Nelson-
Wash., was a great success In every particular,
the races being of especial Interest and developing some of the most hotly contested and hard
fought contests ever put up In this section.
Festivities were began on Sunday, the third,
by a game of baseball between Grand Forks and
Greenwood, played at Nelson, as part of a series
for tlieehampionsliipof tno Boundary country,
In which thc Grand Forks boys got decidedly {
the worst of lt. They weio amply avenged,
however, on Mo. day whon the Nelson team
wiped the earth with the Greenwoods to the
tune of 21 to 7 In live Innings, at the end of
which the game was stopped by rain. The massacre, In both instance, was too fearful to dwell
upon so no detailed account of either game will
be given.
Tno horse races wero rather a surprise tn tlm
sports, none of the favorites winning and the
prizes being carried away by hitherto unknown
horses; but for tlie size of the purBes and the
condition of the track there was some very
creditable races, every rider boing out for blood
and every horse doing all their was in hlm.
The footraces, sack races, tug of war, etc.,
were all hotly contested aud caused a great deal
of interest and amusement among the spectators.
|?A grand open nlr bnll ln the evening ended
the sports and oue of tho most exciting and enjoyable celebrations ever bold in this suutlop of
the country,

Mr, Alfred Woodhouse, M. I, M., who has been
In England on mining business for some time
past, arrived In thc City last Tuesday evening
from Rossland and left the next day for Greenwood and other points on the other Bide of the
range. During his stay lu the city Mr. Woodhouse was seen by Minkk representative In regard to the feeling lu England as to   Investing
Iii the mines of this district, aud the prospects
of English development of our mining properties, nnd in reply said:
"Tiie attention given to British Columbia
Is dally increasing and tho Boundary country
is recognised as one of the coming centers.
The Incoming of   railways and smelters will at'
tract capital, attor completion, tuitls not English capital's way to takeehances; they deal only
on a practical basis, and they will not
buy mines iu a nuw country and develop them
on the chance of railways coming in. If thoy
put tlieir money iu they want lo bo sure of railway mid smelter facilities.
"Some prominent English capitalists had becn
carrying on negotiations with a. view to attracting the attention of tlie investing public to
British Columbia, but this Unfortunate war hns
stopped all proceedings and tho coin plications
that are likely to arise as tbe outcome of tbc
war have anything but a beneficial eil'ecl.
"Mining engineors of the highest standing
have returned to England confirming the reports of their predecessors, and there is u growing feeling that the western liritish colonial possessions of British. Columbia will, by u
judicious outlay of capital, confirm these favorable reports. At the same time it is recognised
that owing to the mountaiuous nature of thc
country, tbe hardness of the rock and the present lack of transportation facilities tho cost of
development will bo very great.
"Witli a return of peace and a better under-
etandlugbetween European nations it is probable that British Columbia, uud certainly the
lioundary country, will receive substantial
financial support from the mother country."
Mr. Woodhouse Is making a flying trip
through thu Boundary country and will, In all
probabilty, shortly return to England, where he
has been doing good work in advertising the
mineral resources of British Columbia
Victoria Strikes It.
JJ, ll, Broton was dowu on Wednesday from
his Victoria claim, up tlie North Fork, and
showed us some line samples from a strike just
mnde on thc property atiidistaucootouly about
eighteen Inches below the surface. As far as
cau bo determined the lead Is In the neighborhood of forty leet wtdo and the rock shown in
really remarkable for so close to the surface. It
Is almost solid Iron and copper pyrites with a
gangue of gray quarts, green tUorlto ind spar,
and should, from all appearance, assay high iu
both gold and copper. The banging wall of thy
lead has been found and consists of granite with
a layer of porphyry between it and the ledge,
As yet the foot wiili is uot uncovered but thc
work now being done on thu property will no
doubt soon result lu Its discovery, and if tlpj
present conditions hold ou the property with
depth |t will doubtless be a mine.

Washington, July 2.—This has been a
day of almost unparalleled suspense and
anxiety. From President McKinley down.
all  through    official Washington, evory-
I body has heen under a tremendous strain.
1    Just at the close of the day the first
bit of information coming directly to of*
| lleials reached the president and Secretary
Alger. It was a private dispatch, not pii-
j inarily   intended   for   them,  although   it
came through official channels.     Briefly
land expressively it told the story of a day
of terrific fighting. It was direct from the
1 field of action, as late as 4 p. m. It stated
| that the engagement had been In progress
throughout the day; that the dead and
wounded were being carried to the rear,
and that the American losses were heavy.
Xo ('hunfre  of Generals.
During the afternoon a sensational rumor gained currency that radical changes
in the plans for the occupation of Cuba
were likely to be adopted by President
McKlnley. It can be said upon the highest
authority, however, that nothing of the
kind is in contemplation.
Secretary Alger Informed lho Associated
Press   emphatically that   absolutely no
change  was   to   be   made in   the   Cuban
plans, or was even in contemplation.

—The army drove lho Spaniards hack at

Santiago today nr tomorrow, Caney will
he takeu with 2000 prisoners, it is now
sure.    One part of llie line of the American forces sleep on the captured ground
'and will renew Che. fight at sunrise. A hot
'day is expected. Captain Grimes' battery
yesterday shelled the east suburban fortifications  for  half an  hour  before any
i reply was made. The Spanish shells over-
, shot the battery nnd    killed    four   nnd
. wounded 25 infantrymen in lhe rear of it.
i    General Wheeler*! cavalry, commanded
j by (Jeneral Sumner, and (Jeneral Kent's
j division, advanced at noon and carried the
San Juan battery by storm before sunset.
(Jeneral Lawton'a division nnd Captain
Capron's battery drove    the   Spaniards
from Caney. Tlie enemy was shut up by
i an  American  cross fire  while  retreating
j in tho direction uf Santiago. The Sixth
[and Sixteenth infantry stormed the eastern rifle pits and after a bitter fight drove
the enemy into Santiago. The Sixth cavalry captured the first Spanish flag.
Captain Par khu rat's batteries commanded tlie east side of Santiago from n
hilt. The eastern line of defense is practically wrecked.
The fighting yesterday was steady
though thc Americans were embarrassed'
by tho heavy brush. Tlie Spaniards made j
a brave but spasmodic defense. Most of
tlio Spanish firing  was by volley, while
purs was mostly at will, each bullet being aimed at a target. It is impossible
to estimate the Spanish loss. 'Hie hospital service is admirable, though lacking
sufficient accommodations.
Simultaneously with   the  land attack
the Meet bombarded the fortifications.

o'clock an ollicer just frnm the front says

: munition ran low. Two pack (rains loaded
with shells were gotten to the front by
. Lieutenant Brooks shortly after 3 o'clock.
j The wounded arc streaming in. (Jeneral
j Shafter estimates that the loss in killed
and wounded is not more than 500.

had its baptism of fire. With desperate
j courage und the mad dash of veterans, it
1 hus conquered the Spanish works before
■ Santiago and his force is driving tlie enemy into the streets of the eity. The victory wns won at a heavy cost in killed
and wounded. It Ls impossible to estimate

The Spanish loss must have been heavy.
The Spaniards opposing (Jeneral Law ton's
division lost in killed, wounded or taken
prisoners 2000 men, and the loss on the
center and left must be double that number. Most of our troops took possession
during the night, although (Jeneral aBtes'

Cheney is not famous for fish stories,

I-ast Friday he, iu company with Clarence
.Martin, F, 1- .Fellows and others, tried a
novel method of catching lish in a small
pond near Tyler. The outlet had dried
up, leaving a great many pickerel entrapped in tlie pond, which was on acre or
two in extent ami perhaps three feet deep
at the deepest point. They were poling a
small ittft along. The water being muddy,
the lish were unable to see, ond in endeavoring to escape from the noise made hy
the raft would jump out of tlie water,
light on the raft and become an easy prey
to the fishermen, in this manner one hundred or more pickerel about a foot in
length were caught in a few moments.
Thc object of State Fish Commissioner
Little's visit to Dayton was to look up the
feasibility of establishing a fish hatchery
in Columbia County, probably on the up*

has been found difficult to bundle the
early run of Chinook salmon, and it :s
thought much could be gained by the establishment of a hatchery near the natural hatching grounds. It is now tlie
practice to get thc fish into pond nets ond
hold them until ripe for spown. Althougli
fairly successful, uiis plon is not sotisfac
fcory. A hatchery is needed at the natural spawning grounds, and if a sufficient
number of lish can be obtained a hatchery-
will be established on the Tukanon this
season. The cost of sueli an enterprise
will be between five and six thousand dollars. Quite a force of men will be em
ployed, twelve men being required to
handle 1,200,000 spawn.

(jeneral Law ton advanced and took DOS'
session of Cabona, a suburb of Santiago.
Morro castle and the other forts at the
entrance of thc harbor were bombarded
by our fleet; The Vesuvius used her dynamite guns with good effect. The Span'
ish fleet in tlie harbor fired on tho American troops, vho were very close to the
city.
Hard fighting all along the American
line was in progress at 11 o'clock. Nine
wounded Cubans have been brought in,
Evening—The fighting continued until
dark. Our forces carried tho enemy's outer
works and have occupied them this even
ing. The battle will probably be resumed at daybreak. The American loss

The  TroojiH   Kn-rnKed.
According to Shafter's report thc attack on Santiago was begun by the Second division of the Fifth army corps,
commanded by Brigadier (Jeneral Lawton.
This division consists of three brigades
made up as follows: First brigade, commanded by Colonel Vanhorn, Eightieth
United States infantry—Twenty-second
infantry and Second Massachusetts infantry.
Second brigade, commanding officer un
known, but supposed to be Colonel Bates,
First United States infantry—Fortieth
United States infantry and Twenty-fifth
United States infantry.
Third brigade, commanded by Brigadier
General Chaffee—Seventh United States
infantry, Twelfth United States infantry
and Seventeenth United States infantry.
In preparation for tho assault on Santiago 00 tried men from each brigade,
non-commissioned ollicers and privates,
have been promoted to be wire clippers,
and they will precede the first firing line
about 200 or 300 yards for the purpose of
cutting the barbed wire fences of obstruction to the way to the city. Their
mission te a most hazardous one, as they
will be exposed to the fire of our own men,
as well as that of the enemy.

Washington, July 2.—The president
and secretary of war, through a private
dispatch from the battlefield, learn thut
the engagement was resumed this morning and lias continued ull duy.
Tlie wounded ure coming in rapidly and
the indications point to heavy losses. The
dispatch docs not indicate a decisive result in any direction.
The profoundest concern throughout military aud official circles marked the open*
; of the second day upon 'which the
battle of Santiago is being fought. The
desperate character of thc fighting is now
fully known to the war department. The
information is in addition to thc report
made by (jeneral Shafter lust midnight
when he roughly estimated the casualties
at about 400. Latest reports, direct from
tho field, indicate this estimate is fnr too
tow.
Owing to the muny conflicting reports
of tho losses of the American troops iu
yosterduy's engagement, it has beeu
tmnight best by the wur department olli-
eiuls to make public the text of General
Shafter's lust dispatch received this morning at 4 o'clock   It is as follows:
"Siboney, via Playa del Este, July 1.—
Adjutant General, Washington: I fear I
have under-estimated today's casualties.
A large and thoroughly equipped hospital
ship should be sent here at once to caro
for the wounded. Chief surgeon says he
has use for 40 more medical officers. Ship
must bring launch and boats for conveying wounded.    (Signed)     RHAPTBR."
Secretary Alger und the adjutant general held a conference us soon ns the sec-
rotary arrived. Then Surgeon General
Sternberg was Rent for, and joined the
conference. It is understood that the surgeon general will send 40 or 50 medical
ollicers in addition to those already with
(Jeneral Shafter's men. All suitable appliances will be provided.
