Mr. Wachsmuth of Oysterville, who
has been experimenting with eastern oysters in Willapa bay, has met wilh encouraging succoss. A year ago he planted
flvo barrels of eastern oysters in the buy.
Last month he took to San Francisco two
sacks of the matured bivalves, whieh met
wilh much favor, it being declared that
they were superior in size and flavor to
the eastern opsters grown in San Francisco bay, tliat he has decided to engage
in the business on a more extensive Bcale.
He has received a half carload of young
eastern oysters, and they will be planted
in the bay. Mr. Wachsmuth and his son
own 200 acres of oyster hods near Oysterville so the plants will have ample room.
As it is a little late in the season to plant
oysters, Mr. Wachsmuth's experiment
may fall. He will plant more next fall
if those planted this year fail to live.

Since the departure of Company F, of
the First Idaho National Guards, for the
seat of war, and the praise they received
as being the best drilled company that reported at Roise, the officers of the remaining companies at Wardner are making
strong efforts to have their companies
even better instructed than were tlie old
members of Company F. Drills are held
regualrly, and every member is expected
to be on hand. Nearly all the members
of theso two companies, which are now
the only organized troops in tlie state,
are employed in mining and their labor
requires that they work nights half of
the time so it is arranged tliat the men
working dny shift do no drilling. Members who arc not working regularly drill

everv drill when they ure on night shift,
regardless of the company thut is bci'ng
drilled, the drilling being the important
feature, and the company organization
being only a secondary matter. There

Port Au Trincc, aIiij- 20.—Two Italians
who set out from Santiago de Cuba in a
small boat on Mny 10, landed near Mole
St. Nicholas on the 22d, arriving here today, bringing information us to the situation at Santiago. The state of affairs
there is critical particularly so because of
the luck of food. A great muny of the
unfortunate people, especially the recon-
centrados, are dying of starvation. The
whole population is terribly discouraged
and keenly desirous of peace.
The arrival of the squadron under Cer-
vera without food supplies for tbe city
deepened the general despondency. The
squadron has disembarked 800 men, artillerymen nnd engineers and landed 20,000
Mauser lilies, a great quantity of ammunition and four big guns destined for
the fortifications. In spite of tlie strict
silence maintained by tbo officers and
crews, tiie general impression wns when
the Italians left, that the squadron would
set sail for San Junn, Puerto Rico, to obtain supplies nnd land ammunition there.
Private.      Instructed    What    to
When Wounded In Battle.
The wounded in a modern land battle
hove Binnll chance of immediate rescue,
says tho London Mail. It is not possible
to remove them from the fighting during
the conflict, because the hospital hearers
attempting the task would lie killed. The
best that can be hoped is to attend to
Ihem within thc next 24 hours. This stern
fact having becn realized, instruction has
becn given to every private in the United States army in the art of taking care
of himself in case he is hurt He carries
tt his belt what is called a "first-aid-packet," containing a roll of bandages, an*
untiscptics compress and an. antiseptic
gauze, inclosed in a sealed rubber casing.
If ho gets a bullet wound and is in a
condition to use his wits, he stuffs a plug
of tlie gauzo into the hole and applies a
bandage. This mny save his life and give
tlie scrgon a chance when thore is nn opportunity for treating him.

New York, Mny 31.—The stale department lias mailed lo General Morritt bis
exhaustive instructions for the government of the Philippines, says the Washington correspondent of the Tribune.
These embody not only full details for
the control ot the military and naval
forces in establishing L'nited Stutcs sovereignty over the Philippine group, which
were prepared by the win* nnd navy departments for incorporation in the instructions, but arc understood to clothe
tlie commanding general with greater discretionary powers thun huve ever up to
this time been granted to an agent of this
government. Except in bis relations with
foreign powers, growing out of possible
complications in the eust, which are to
be referred to Washington for negotiation,
General Mcrritt's control of affairs will
bo practically supreme. The instructions
throughout bear every evidence that tlie
L'nited States intends to retain permanent
control of ths islands.
In this connection it is understood today thnt arrangements are already being
made to lay n cubic from San Francisco
by wny of Hawaii, directly to Manila and
that work will bc undertaken as a matter
of necessity tiie moment thc authority
for expenditure can lie secured from congress.
Twenty ThniiMnna Men.
Ry direction of the president formal
orders have been prepared for issue today
adding 8000 men to the department of the
Pacific under General Morritt, increasing
the force to 20,000 men. While General
Merritt was promised a week ngo that
this increase would be made if possible,
difficulties insurmountable in character
were presented and it wns only on thc
success nchieved by the wur department
yesterday, in' securing the execution of
contracts much earlier than anticipated,
that it was found possible to redeem the
promise. These related not only to
transportation but to the arms, ammunition, uniform nnd other requisite equipment, it having been fensible up to .this
time to secure these essentials for only
12,000 men.
General Merritt was informed last night
of the improved prospects for augmenting his force and wns requested to designate such additional volunteer regiments
from the east us he desired for duty in
tho Philippines with thc assurance that
liis wishes would lie respected.
It is understood that lie contemplates
asking for at least one regiment from
New York, another from Illinois nnd from
the District of Columbia a third, lt is
likely Colonel Jay Torrey's mounted
Rocky mountain riflemen will be added
to the expedition, which is thus far deficient in the cavulry arm.
Part  of  Gomes'**  Army   Selxetl   Food
and A mm mi HI on.
London, May 30.—A dispatch to thc
Standard from Key West says:
Intelligence has been received here from
Cuba that a portion of tlie army of General Gomez, consisting of 300 cavalry and
500 infuntry, on Saturday at day-light nt-
tucked, captured and held for two hours
the town of Remedios, in the province of
Santa Clara.
The Cubans wrere commanded by Cnr-
illo, and the object of the attack was to
capture a supply of provisions sent there
three days before to the Spanish troops,
who numbered 3000 men. The Cubans looted the place of everything edible, which
was sent to General Gomez, as well as
304 Mauser rifles and 30,000 rounds of ammunition.
The loss of thc Cubans was four killed
and three wounded. The Spaniards lost
32 killed and 30 wounded.
Purl   Will   lie   l.cil   to   Fill   Prewent
Wellington ,May 30.—About 20 governors of states nnd territories have replied
to Secretary Alger's telegrams asking for
their views regnrding the filling of the
present volunteer regiments U> their maximum strength before beginning the formation of new organizations. Some of
these Indicate a preference for the recruiting of entirely new regiments ns, under
the first cull, leaving tiie present organizations with Ihe number of nun now con*
tnined ill thein, though practically nil
promise the governmen any amount of
troops that nre wanted. It is the president's desire, however, that the organisations already formed should |,c filled to
tlieir maximum strenglh ns lhe law provides und this policy will be curried out in
the recruiting under the second cull. Tlie
apportionment to the stihes hus been
made up hut not yet given to the public.
Through urgent representations to Secretary Alger some of tlm stylos were per-
milted under the first cull to furnish a
greater number of troops thun they were
legally entitled to on the basis of popular representation. Consequently in raising the 75,000 men under [lie second cnll
these inequalities will be remedied as far
as practicable with the result that some
of the states may not be culled on to
furnish nny of the men needed. This
course probably may give rise to discontent in stutes where men wish lo serve,
but it is regarded ns the only fuir way to
Adjutant General Corbin snid tliat it
had been definitely decided today to use
about 50,000 of the volunteers to be raised
under the new call in filling out deficient
regiments already organised under the
old call, lt would take ubout that number he thought, to fill each company up
to the maximum limit of 1000 men. The
remaining 25,000 men wiil bc organized
into regiments of three battalions eacli
and distributed among the states and territories in exnetly the same proportion as
under the first cnll. No cavalry however,
would be accepted, und only a limited
number of artillery.

Snn Francisco, May 21).—Four train
loads of Montana volunteers arrived in
this city yesterday. The Red Cross Society had prepared a breakfast of sandwiches and coffee for tlie soldiers after
which they were lined up for the mureli
to Camp lUchmond.
Tlie men were given a magnificent reception by the people of this city, who
gathered by thousands along the line of
march, cheering them, and as tlio soldiers
marched along they were presented with
flowers and fruits in abundance.
The troops were in good physical condition, but were a little fatigued from
their long confinement on the cars. Their
camping grounds at Camp Richmond had
been prepared for them and before evening the men will be comfortably settled
in their new quarters.

in tho mountain states, of which lie
would go to the front as colonel. He has
already received tenders of enough companies from Montana olone to moke the
regiment, but he feels other mountain
states will desire and should bc given opportunity to contribute troops if the regiment is to be organized.

Albuquerque, N. M., Mny 29.—Joseph
Romero, while crazed with drink, shot
nnd almost instantly killed 8-ycar-old Felipe Abumion nnd injured Arturo Garcia
so thut he will die. Previous to this Ro-
mero attempted to kill Kunieio Anaya,
but his gun refused to respond to his murderous desire.
Romero filled up on whiskey here and
started for Atrisio, on the other side of

London, May 30.—The Madrid correspondent of the Times says:
Tlie recent statement of Lord Wolscley,
the. commander-in-chief of the British
anny, in conversation with the correspondent of the Associated Press in London thnt the United Stntes would make
a mistake in attempting to invade Cuba
with volunteers who ore not fully drilled
and disciplined on being cabled back from
New York, still more excited popular feeling against England. Spaniards regard
it as indecorous for the commander-in-
chief of a friendly power to proclaim his
sympathy With America and to advise
tlie latter as to the best method of invading a Spanish possession.

The celebrated Pluckrock-Niaguro cuse
bus beet) decided iu the .supreme court at
Washington, the decision of the lower
iu thecourl being sustained, lie cuse wus
tried in the district court of Silver Bow
counly, Mont., in July, 1802. 'l'he plaintiffs were William P. Forbis. James W.
Forbis, .Meyer Gonzberger and W. F. Fitzgerald, who owned two-thirds of the Niagara, W. A. Clark owning the other
third. The defendants were w. A. Clark
und J. K. Clark, owners of the Blackrock,
The two claims adjoint, the south side
line of tin: Niagara being also thu north
side line of the Blackrock, The apex of
the vein in controversy passes through
the west end line of the Blackrock and
crosses the common side line 513 feet
westerly from the cast end line of the
Blackrock and continues across tlie Niagara, passing out of the east end line
thereof. The vein dipped to the south.
It was alleged that the owners of the
Blackrock hud extracted ore from that
vein on its dip nt a point under the apex
which was on the Niagara, and plaintiffs
were given judgment for $27-242,40, the
alleged amount of ore extracted. A motion for a new trial was denied and in
November, 1805, the supreme court of
Montana affirmed the judgment of the
lower court in denying a new trial, 'llie
case was then taken to the supreme court,
aud some time ago arguments were heard,
J. W. Forbis appearing for the plaintiffs
and Governor It. B, Smith for the defendants. The decision of the district court
in this case followed the principle laid
down in the King-Amy-Silversmith ease,
holding thut the Niagara owners were
entitled to an accounting against the
Blackrock for the ore taken from the
dip of the vein under the apex, which was
ou Niagara ground and cast of the point
where the apex passed wholly within the
Niagara premises. This case differed
from the Amy-Silversmith in this: in
the Amy-Silversmith thc vein passed
through two side lines, crossing the location diagonally. In the lUaekruck-Nia-
gara case the apex |sisses through an end
line and a side line. The amount of thc
judgments with interest to date is ovei

Prospectors have recently staked out a
largo amount of placer ground on the
bar between Boulder and Gold Creeks, iu
tlie Priest lake district of Idaho, lt is
claimed by the parties who did the work
tliat they were employed by u syndicate
of Spokane and eastern capitalists. It i-
said that the syndicate w ill put in a large
hydraulic plant. They will take the
water from Uoulder creek, where a good
head can be obtained high above the bars.
There ean be little doubt of the success
of the enterprise if properly conducted as
gold can be found in many places in this
bur. In some places it bus been found in
sufficient quantity to warrant working
with sluices in a small way. Work of this
nature will probably be done on Gold
creek thin scusun. Considerable course
gold lias been taken out of (.old creek
in the immediate vicinity of tlie falls.
Claims were staked on Gold creek many
years ago when Idaho was a territory. No
one here nows who the early prospectors
were but there are indications that, they
met with encouraging results.
On Mount Clinpoccn.
At the Golden Zone on Mount Cha*
puecu, in Okanogan county, Washington,
work is steadily progressing on the tunnel which hus penetrated the mountain
over 400 feef. giving u vertical depth of
900 feet, the greatest depth iu Okanogan.
The present workings disclose six feet of
beautiful high grade honey combed white
quartz, absolutely free milling, much of
it showing free gold to the naked eye.
It has been estimated thut 85 per cent of
the values con be saved on the tables.
The work done bus developed a mine of
great value. Manager Kingsbury bus
shippc quantities of ore lo Fraser, Chalmers and others for mill tests and states
that a complete milling plant with a daily
capacity of 35 to 40 tons, with free van-
ners, will bc ordered shipped to Johnson
creek during high wuter in the Okanogan
river, and will be set iu position and run
ning early the coining full.
The company also has several desirable
mill sites and a valuable water right with
o fall of '200 foot to furnish power for the

The Basic Mining Company Is building
a dredge to operate at Plueerville is the
report from Hoise, Idaho. The boat for
thc dredge has been built and the machinery is arriving. The boat is 100 feet
long, 40 feet wide ami draws 3J feet of

make a pond in which to float it. Thc
dredge is to be operated by electric force
generated hy water power and the plant
for tlie purpose is elaborate. Fourteen
miles of ditch and flume have been constructed uml the power afforded will
amount at the minimum to 500 horse
power, the fall being 350 feet. Thc waters of Grimes creek are used and the
power will be conveyed to tlie dredge over
12 miles of wire. Tlie company is also

the placing of a switch from the main
truck of the Columbia & Western to the
Monte Cristo mine. The result is that
the survey of the spur will be made, and
immediately thereafter the work of construction will be commenced, 'l'he spur
will be ubout half a mile in length. While
this te being uilt, the shipping of ore will
be begun.

On Board the Associated press Dispatch
Moat Wanda, Key West, May 29.—Sunday, with the fleet waiting, watching iu
silent, sunlit seas, a group of great battleships motionless under the tropical sun,
broad decks, scorched and seared by day,
languid and dreamy under the stars by
night, a fleet of powerful sea fighters, an
army of brave men drifting at sea waiting for something to do -that tells thc
story of Hear Admiral Sampson's fleet for
many days and nights. The ships of the
fleet stand close together in small groups.
Hour after hour passes and the position
is not changed. Greal volumes of smoke
occasionally issue from the funnels and
curl unswayed by the wind into the sky.
The men drag impatiently through the
drills and ciawl impatiently away into the
shaded nooks of the decks and grumble
ut the inactivity. During the day the
music on board swells far out over the
silent water, and at night voices arc plain
ly heard from ship tu ship. Stretching
away lo thc sea line the sky is gleaming
and motionless and one can scarcely imagine it the sjunc sofl that has been tumbling

But there is method in Sampson's inactivity. Until he is definitely advised tbat
the Spanish fleet Is imprisoned in Suntiugu
de Cuba harbor he is here in a position to
move quickly in any direction where the
Spanish ships may appear. Jf the Spaniards should escape Schley and make for
eastern seaports of the United States he
is iu a position in a feu hours run to cut
them off in the Windward passage. One
ov more scout boats are kept iu that position constantly. On the other hand if
thc Spaniards should come around the
western end of Cuba with the hope of getting into Havana he is here where he can
intercept Ihem on short notice. Jt is
irksome to wait here day after day.
A most vigilant watch i.s kept by the
Ileet day and night in hope that the Spanish fleet may come iu sight. The sailors
hang over the rails scanning the horizon
and thc gunners lie in thc shadow of the
big rifles, longing for a chance to see the
monsters thundering.
Washington, May 28.~-The navy department this afternoon ujude public tlie
following dispatch:
"Cavite, May 24, via Hong Kong, Muy
20.—To the Secretary of the Nuvy, Washington: No change in the situation. The
blockade is effective. It is impossible for
the people of Munilo to buy any provisions except rice. The captain of the
Olyinpia (Gridley) has been condemned
by a medical survey und is ordered home.
He leaves by tho Occidental and Oriental
steamship from Hong Kong on the 28th.
Commander 1,-aniberton is appointed commander of the Olympia. Dewey."
In   Desperate  Straits.
New York, May 28.—A dispatch to tlie
World from Munilu via Hong Kong says:
The situation of the besieged inhabitants
of Manila is growing more and more desperate, owing to the cutting off of supplies. The blockade by Dewey's squadron is complete, while the insurgents huve
surrounded the city on the land side, thus
effectually closing the place in.
Dewey has deferred further aggressive
action nt this point until the arrival of
the cruiser Charleston with coal and ammunition, and of the promised troops for
military occupation of the islands.
Power*   Have   Agreed.
""Berlin, May 28.—An article in the Post
"It is declared semiofficially that the
recent rumors as to the transfer of tlie
Philippine islands to France or to Germany or to their partition among the
European powers with interests in the far
east have no foundation whatever. America Is not yet in possession, it is true,
and it is quite possible that she may not
ever occupy them. Put any laying of
hands on tbe islands at present would
be a hostile act against America, nor
would it be tolerated by tlie other European powers having interests there."
This utterance may be taken as explicit
proof that the continental powers have
come to un agreement on the subject to
await further action bv America.

New York, May 20.—A special dispatch
to the Tribune from Washintgon says:
Orders have at last gone forward to
Major General Shafter at Tampa to embark the greater portion of his corps, including all thc regulars and a few of the
most efficient volunteer regiments on
board thc transports gathered ot that
place and the aggressive military movement which has been so frequently pre
dieted and so often delayed for one cause
ur nnother is an accomplished fact before
the end of this week. Thc strongest units
of Admiral Sampson's reorganized squad
mn will convoy tbc expedition and cover
ils landing at a point now definitely desig
Simultaneously the most rigid conv>r
ship of press dispatches thnt has so fur
beeu undertaken by the government will
be pul into operation at Tampa and Key
West tonight, and no message relating to
the movements of troops or ships, or in
any way speculating upon thc expedition
will bc permitted on the wires. If this
means of preventing publication of information which would Ih; exceedingly valuable to Spain is not wholly successful, the
censorship will bc promptly extended to
the mails. It can be confidently asserted
that beyond the secretary of war and secretary of the navy, thc president will permit no civilian to enjoy his confidence in
this matter until a landing on the foreign
territory shall have been actually accomplished and General Shafter himself will
have sealed orders, whose contents will be
known only to General Miles and General
Corbin, until tbc expedition is safely at
sen. Admiral Sampson's sole instruction
was to guard the expedition and to eo-
operato with General Shafter under the
hitter's direction.
Mule St. Nicholas. Haiti, May 30.-l'he
following dispatch has been received here
from the correspondent of the Associate
Press with the American fleet otl Santiago:
Off Santiago de Cuba, May 29.--Commodore Schley and the flying squadron
hove the Spanish licet bottled up in the
harbor of Santiago, By the most clever
manoeuvering the commodore allowed the
Spaniards to think lie had left in disgust.
They took the bail and ran into the harbor. Schley moved down ihis morning
and at 0 o'clock by going close to the harbor he saw the Cristobal Colon, Maria
Teresa, and  two torpedo boats.
Commodore Schley has acted upon his
own information and judgment for six
days and believes the whole Spanish fleet
is there. After the discovery of the fleet
he went to breakfast saying:
"1 have got them and they will never
get home."
'l'he auxiliary cruiser St. Paul arrived
here this morning and was sent lo Mole
St. Nicholas with dispatches. She captured a coal ship, which was sent to Key
West hy Captain Sigsbee in charge ol a
prize crew. The coal was undoubtedly intended for the Spanish fleet. It is believed there is not much coal at Santiago.
'l'he officers and men of the flying
squadron are jubilant over thc fact that.
the location of the Spanish fleet has finally
been definitely established.
The temperature here is 110 in the
shade and in the steel turrets the heat te

The Opposition Convention  Held In
Rossland Wednesday nay 26
Has  Been Postponed
The opposition convention, called to
be held in Rossland on May 26th, for
the naming of a candidate for the coming provincial election, met at the International hall at 4 o'clock in tbe afternoon, and upon tbe request of the delegation from Grand Forks, whicb constituted only about one-tbird the number
allowed the Boundary Creek district, it
was decided to postpone tbe convention
until the 8th of June, in order that all
parts of tbe Boundary district could call
meetings and elect a delegation to represent thera in tbe convention.
Tbe convention was called to order
by J. A. Kirk, chairman of the Roasland
committee, who stated tbe object of the
meeting. James Wilks moved tbat
John A. Manly be made chairman of
the convention, but before a second
could be made to tbe motion, Mr. Manly
declined and moved Mr. J. A. Kirk to
the chair, which was carried.
As the afternoon meeting was only a
preliminary one for the purpose of discussing the situation and agreeing upon
some line of action in order to facilitate
tbe business of* the convention in the
evenin*;, there was nothing done beyond
an informal discussion of the condition
of affairs, and the appointment of a
committee on credentials.
F. H. McCarter and |ohn A. Manly,
en behalf of tbe Grand Forks delegation, requested that tbe convention be
adjourned for two weeks, giving as a
reason for so doing tbat the manner ot
calling the convention bad been irregular. That it bad been done without any
public notice, and without consulting
tbe wishes of the people in the Boundary country; nobody seemed to be responsible for what bad been done and
for that reason no attention bad been
paid to the call. Nine-tenths of the
people of tbe Boundary country were
opposed to tbe present government, and
for that reason tbey felt that tbey should
bave been consulted in regard lo the
calling of a convention for the purpose of
naming a person to represent them in
tbe next legislature. If the convention
was adjourned for two weeks and the
people of the Boundary country were
properly approached, there was no doubt
but tbat the district would be properly
represented. Then again as Grand
Forks was tbe only section represented
from tbe western part of the district,
the delegation present did not feel as if
they could conscieniously take pat in
the naming of a candidate, tbus binding
in a way tbe people of tbat section to
tbe actions ot a convention tbat tbey
had no say in the calling of.
After several of the Rossland delegate
bad explained the mode of calling the
convention and disclaimed any intentions of trickery, but showed that everything they had done was in tbe utmost
good iaitb, and for what they considered tbe best, expressed a desire and
willingness to do anything Ibat would
tend to convince tbe people of the
Boundary country tbat there was no desire on tbe part of the Rossland people
to shut them out from having a voice In
tbe managing of a candidate and pledged themselves in tbe event of a Boundary Creek rcan being brought before the
convention and nominated tbat tbey
would do everything in their power to
secure his election.
After a thorough discussion of the situation It was decided that the question
of adjournment would be the first thing
brought before the convention,
A committee on credentials consisting of J. A. Kirk, A. H. MacNeill,
James Wilks, Rossland; F. H. McCarter, Grand Forks; and T. W. Coleman,
Trail, was reported to report to tbe convention in the evening.
An adjournment was then taken until
8 o'clock in the evening.
The convention met according to ad-
. journment.
The committee on credentials reported
as follows;
Rossland entitled to eighteen delegates, all present.
Trail—Five delegates; three in parson and two by prosy.
Grand Forks—Five delegates; three
in person, one by proxy and one not
On motion of F. H. McCarter the
convention was adjourned to the 8th of
On behalf of the citaens of Grand
Forks and tbe lOundary country, Mr.
John A. Manly asked that the adjourned
convention be held at Grand Forks and
stated that if the convention was held
there tbat tbe ci'itens of Grand Forks
would defray the expenses of the Rossland and Trail delegates to and from
the convention, and entertain them during their stay in the city,
After considerable discussion this
proposition was declined, with a vote of
thanks from the convention, and Rossland was decided on as the place.
The next point brought up for consideration was whether or not the con-
ventipn should be an open or closed
one. After a good natured debate on
the subject it was decided that tbe deliberations of the convention should be
behind closed doors, the vote being a
tic, it was decided by the easting vote ol
(he -isairman.
A   ii)9*i<-"*   preygilfd   allowing th()vc
proposed at the convention five minutes
in which to accept or reject the nomination.
A committee was appointed to draft
a platform to be submitted to the con.
The convention then adjourned.
Editor Norris of Midway Says That it Was
the Heaviest Since 1894.
Editor Norris, of the Midway Ad
vance spent a day or two in town this
week looking after tbe interest of bis
paper in tbis vicinity. Mr. Norris reports tbat the heaviest rain fall for years
occured in that vicinity Thursday of last
week. At Midway, where the rain was
considerable less tban in the neighboring mountains, the official recoi h for 24
hours was 1.66 und on Friday .84 fell,
making two and a half inches in 48
hours. Kettle river raised bank high,
overflowing the Rock creek bridge and
flooding out a number of Chinamen,
wbo were placer mining there causing
the loss of a lot of flour, sugar and other
provisions. Both the bridge at Rock
creek and at Ingram's withstood the
flood. Boundary creek was also flooded
and while tbe bridge below Anaconda
stood, tbe north approach to it was
washed out. The dam at Powers' sawmill a mile or so above Midwav washed
out and about ico.ooo feet of logs were
carried down stream, but most of them
were caught below. A log jam near J
Dale's cabin backed up tbe water until
it overflowed and ran in in a wide
stream down in front of the Lancashire
House and thence into the field below.
The Townsite agent Sunday mornin*;
put a force of men to work blowing out
the log-jam, and by evening the water
was turned back into its usual channel.
He says that serious damage was done
in the vicinity of Midway by this unprecedented fall of rain, whilst on the other
hand tbe benefit to crops and feed is
very great, rain having previously been
badly needed. Mr. Norris also stated
that the heaviest rainfall previsously recorded in Mid'ay was on July 19'h,
1895, when 1.10 fell. Kettle river has not
been so high as it was on Sunday since
the big flood of 1894.
North Fork And Kettle  River Overflow
the   Town.
Tbe people of this section can appre
ciate tbe teelings of the occupants of
Noah's ark, as they have been erjiying
a somewhat similar experience themselves this week. On Thursday of last
week a heavy rain set in and continued
at intervals until last Sunday nigbt, raising all the rivers and streams of tbe
district and delaying travel 0 a considerable extent. Saturday both the North
Fork and tbe main Kettle river began
to rise and by Sunday morning had left
the high watermark of last year com
pletely in the shade and were creeping
ovcr tbe iloon of a number of bouses
Situated near the river bank driving the
occupants out to higher ground. Driftwood came down the streams in large
quantities, and a number of times placed both the bridges here in jyaproiy,
but a liberal use of dynamite each time
dislodged the jims and the bridge-,
were saved, although there were times
when even the most sanguine dispared
of it.
By, Sunday afternoon, however, the
waters had reaohed their highest point
and by noon Monday bad subsided
enough to allow those who had moved
out to return and resume the even tenor
of tbeir ways. The water is now fast
subsiding, communication with the uut-
S'de world is again ujrtain and it looks
as though tbe high water was over for
this year, at least.
Finally Adopted   the  Saloon
And Contractor Davey   Would  Like
to Have the  Council   Accept
Them at Once.
A special meeting of the city council
was held last Thursday. There were
present Mayor Davis and all the aldermen.
Clerk Johr.san read a letter from Contractor Davey in wbich he asked tbat
water and light plants be accepted.
Alderman Jones moved that the city
cleri be instructed to interview Mr.
Davey and inform him that before the
council would accept the water and
light plants, he must run the light plant
for seven nights continuously, from 7.
p. m. to 1 a. m., and tbe water system
must be tested to the satisfaction of the
council. This motion also requested
Mr. Davey to attend the next council
meeting and to produce a statement of
all monies due on the two systems.
This motion was seconded by Alderman
O'Connor, and carried,
Mayor Davis bere spoke up and said
he wanted to see this water works business settled quietly; that Mr. Davey and
John A. Manly might be able to help
the council to affect a settlement.
Alderman Jones then moved that the
cle k be instructed to interview Messrs.
Hayward and Bently relative to tbeir
auditing the treasurers' books.
Alderman McCallum then moved
that Mr. Davey he requested to run the
light plant for seven nights from 7 p.
in. to one a. m. and to test the water
system to the satisfaction of the council, Aldman Jones stconding this motion.
Aldermen Jones, Whit.', Knight. Mc
Galium and O'Connor spoke strongly in
favor of having both systems thoroughly
tested before taking tbem over.
Mr. Addison being present informed
the council that the sum of $3-0 had
been allowed the Grand Porks hre brigade by tbe provincial government and
was already placed in the estimates.
The council then adjourned.
A Narrow Escajie.
Owing to tbe extremely bigh water of
tbe main Kettle river all travel between
Grand Forks and Republic was suspended, from last Saturday afternoon
until Tuesday morning, it being considered unsafe to operate the ferry across
tbe river at Curlew.
Last Saturday an attempt was made
to cross the stage, from Republic, which
came very near proving dtsasterous
The water was raising very rapid and
current was so strong as soon as the
boat pushed from shore the upper side
of the boat was drawn under water un*
til four feet of water was running over
it. Fortunately the tower gave way,
tbus allowing tbe cable to slacken suf
ficiently to take tbe strain from off the
ropes and saving the stage and everyone on board ot the ferry from being
swept into tbe river. A rope was at
once thrown from shore and the ferry
was safely landed without any setiou.

bands a bad scare.
Thinks They Witt Fall la Line
Mr. Hugh McCutcheon, who has been
mentioned as a probable candidate for
tbe opposition nomination before the
Rossland convention on the 8th inst,
spent a day or two in town this week,
having been sent here by tbe Rossland
liberal association to explain tbe attitude of the Rossland oppositionist relative to the calling ot the much talked of
convention, and to endeavor to in luce
tbe people uf tbe Boundary country to
send a delega ion to the adj iut ned convention to be held in that city on June
8th. Mr. McCutcheon also visited
Midway, Greenwood and other portions
or tbe district, and says that after the
people thoroughly understand the rit-
uation they will feel moro kindly toward
the convention tban tbey have hither
done. He also cspressed the belief that
a full representation would be sent from
all parts of the district.

The regular weekly meeting of the
city council vas held in the council
chamber at 1:30 yesterday afternoon,
all members being present. After the
minutes of the iast meeting bad been
read and adopted the clerk read a letter
notifying lhe ci y that the hose cart an
500 foet of hose for the fire department
was at tbe S. F. & N. at Bossburg and
it was decided to have it forwarded at
once so it could be used in case of fire.
Bids of Fred Cooper for $** carpenter
work anil M. Wiles for if 3 for hauling stone
for the First Street bridge, during the
recent high water, were read and referred to the finance committee.
The clerk then reported that he had
secured the city's books from Treasurer
Addison and turned tbem over to the
auditing committee, and had notified
Mr. Davey to be present at the meeting
to confer with thc council in regard to
the water works. Tbe question of th..
acceptance of tbe water and light plant
was then taken up and discussed at
some length, Mr. Davey bein,; present
and explaining several points upon
which the council desired enlightment-
It was finally decided, after a great deal
of discussion, motions and amendments,
that the board of works should employ
a man to make an expert report upon
ihe water and light plant and should the
report to the council regarding the acceptance ot the plant.
The question of immediately dispensing with tbe services of Mr. James Addison, who has been serving tbe city in
tbe capacity of treasurer, assessor and
sev rai minor offices, was then
taken up and discussed rather warmly,
some of tbe council being in favor of
bis immediate dismissal, but finally it
was decided tbat this would be too summary a method, and he will be retained
until the auditing committee has completed their examination of his books.
Mr. P. T. McCallum informed the
council that the people of Upper Grand
Forks desired tn make arrangements to
bave the electric light system extended
to that point, and wished to know what
the city would charge for lights, As
the city as yet does not own the plant
and has no idea of what tbe expense of
operation will amount to it was impossible to give any answer to this question
for the present.
• L. A. Manly offered to advance the
money to pay the freight on tbe hose
and cart for the flre department and
take a wariant in payment, this offer being accepted,
The council then adjourned.
the mayor was authorised to appoint a

The People   ot   The   Boundary   Country
and Kettle River District Organizing.
Last evening a muss meeting of the
electors of Grand Foiks and vicinity
was held in Chas. Van Ness' cilice, for
tbe purpose of discussing the political
situation and to elect six delegates to a
convention to be held at Carson this
evening composed of representatives
from the different parts of the Boundary
and Kettle R.vcr country, which comprises tbe western riding of tbe Rossland electorial district. The ol j ct of
the meeting at Carson is for the purpose of deciding whether or not this
section sond a delegation to the opposition convention to be held in Rossland
next Wednesday, June 8th, and to formulate some plan of action for the com
ing campaign.
Mr. Chas. Hay presided at thc meeting and J. K. Johnson ac:ed as secre
tary. After a thorough discussion of
the subject ur.dn* consideration by those
present, Messrs. John A. Manly, W. li.
Davey, Cbas. Hay, E. Spraggett, James
Addison and Peter T. McCullaiu were
chosen to go to the Carson convention
and in tbe event of a delegation being
sent to Rossland from the Kettle River
and Boundary section, they aro to rep
resent Grand Forks.
The meeting was very harmonious
from beginning to end, and the sentiment ol those pesent seemed to be tbat
the people of Grand Forks and vicinity
should stand together and work in harmony with those of the other portions of
tbe riding.
A Birthday Celebration.
A very pleasant birthday party was
given last Wednesday afternoo 1 at the
home of Mrs. Wm. Mader, in honor of
her two daughters Misses Millie and
Lena, aged 13 and 11 respectively. As
their birthdays came very near together
a combination was formed and the two
events were celebrated in one, The afternoon was spent in playing child.sb
games and a dainty lunch consisting of
ice cream, cake and other dainties was
served, and enjoyed by all. Among
those present were Helen Ingraham,
Annie Noseda, Katie McLean, Edna
Traunweiser, Uattie Baumgartner, Zoe
McCarter, Edna and Ethel Currun,
Elsie ani Gertrude Pribilsky, Minnie
Larrbert and Pearl Preslar. The festivities of tbe occasion lasted until
about 7 o'clock in tbe evening when all
returned home with pleasant memories
of the pleasures of the evtnt.

Bonded For $30,000.
Messrs. Joe Young, A. L. Rogers and
John Ashfield have bonded tbe Royal
Banner mineral claim, in Summit camp,
to an English syndicate represented by
Mr. Cochrane, of Rossland. The bond
is for $33,000 of which $1,000 bas been
paid in ca h and the balance, $"19,000, is
to be paid on tbe 2nd of March 1899.
It also provides that not less tban seven
men shall be kept at work continually
on tbe property during the life of the
bond. The Royal Banner is a copper
proposition on which there is said to be
a very creditable showing.
Will Work Again.
From a private letter received from
J. B. Sargent, secretary of the Bonita
Gold Mining company, of Spokane, it is
learned tbat preparations are being
made to commence work again on tbis
property at an early date. The extent
and nature of the work to be done is not
made public, but the impression is conveyed that it will be on a more extensive scale than it was last year, and
doubtless Grand Forks will be soon
awakened at the bombardment of the
minor's cannon from this property,

Word bas been received here to the
effect that the contract for the construction of the Robson-Midway railway had
been let to Mann, Larsen & Foley. Thc
tirst named is D. D. Mann, of tbe well-
known contracting firm of Mann & Mc-
Kenzie.   He was also one of the owners
of the V. V. & E. railway charter.   Thc
[ second is Peter Larsen, of the firm of, v.,
I Larsen tic Connelly, one of the biggest  kUs
j railway contracting firms in the  West,   flh
Mr. Foley, the   third   member of the ! fflL
firm, was a partner in the Foley Broth-1 ^
ers & (luthrie syndic ate, which built the
Kaslo & Slocan railway.
Tbe construction of this section of
road will cost $3,000,000. It will be
about 100 rr iles in length and is built
over a section in which the physical
obstacles to be encountered are verv
great. The construction of that portion
of tbe line from Rob-.on to Christina
lake, will require engineering skill of a
high order. McCrea pass, which is 13
miles in length, is even more difficult
than the C. P. R. pass in the Rocky
mountains. There will be a number cf
tunnels and numerous bridges and every
mile will represent a vast o'.ittay.
That portion of the Columbia &
Western from Trail to Robson is
already completed, and tlie line will be
continue 1 from Robson along the Columbia river to Dog creek to McRae
Creek pass, thence down McRae creek
to Christina lake to Cascade City; along
the Kettle river to Grand Forks; up the
north fork and Brown's creek to Eholt
pass; down Eholt creek lo Boundary
creek and through Greenwocd,Anaconda
and Boundary Falls to Midway.
It is the intention to crowd the construction of this section of the road with
all possible speed, so tbat it may be
finished before tbe end of the presert
year. Tbe C. P. R. in order to obtain
the necessary concessions from the government and to prevent the construction
ot rival lines into the Boundary country
made certain promises to the government, which it is now diligently endeavoring to fulfil.

D. C. Corbin May Get His Charter Yet.—
Has Gone to Ottawa
Tbe following from the Spokesman-
Review, of the 2nd, will be read with
interest by the people of the Boundary
D. C. Corbin has gone to Ottawa, and
the rumor is rife that negotiations are
about to be reopened for the granting of
a charter for the building of the Kettle
River valley railroad to connect the
Spokane & Northern with the Boundary
ciock country. It is only a rumor, and
yet it has served to awaken hope in the
mining ramps up north.

j Invasion of Cuba can only be conjectured.
The transportation of land forces to the
island, it te thought, was delayed because
of uncertainty concerning the location of
■ the Spanish squadron.    If    tnat   undcr-
. [standing is correct, the probability of an
: early invasion of Cuba is strong. It te not
! unlikely that the movement of troops,
I which has been delayed from time to
time, will begin this week, and that bc-
i fore the end of Llie week the United States
forces will have obtained a .substantial
foothold upon Cuban soil.

Washington, May 30.—At 12:30 o'clock
this (.Monday) morning the navy depart-
ment received a dispatch from Commodore Schley announcing definitely that lie
had located Admiral Cervera's Cape Verde
squadron in the bay of Santiago de Culm.
The commodore states that he himself
had recognized the vessels of the Spanish
While naval officials have becn moderately certain for several days that Cervera's squadron was in the harbor of Santiago, the official announcement from
Commodore Schley was received by the officers on duty at thc deportment with intense satisfaction. Assurance is now
doubly sure that the Spanish Ileet is bottled up and the cork is iu tlie bottle. It
is not believed that Cervera will attempt
to escape from the predicament in which
he now finds himself, as such a course
would surely result in the destruction uf
his vessels nnd lhe loss of many lives
precious to Spain. The suggestion is
made, however, tliat the Spaniards may
blow up the ships rather than have them
full Into the hands of Schley, as they certainly will if they remain in tlie harbor.
The deliniteness of Commodore Schley's
dispatch would seem to indicate that ho
has effected o lauding near Santiago and
made a personal investigation of the harbor. 11 would be impossible, from the entrance of the bay, definitely to see and
recognize! the Spanish vessels, but hy effecting a landing at some point on either
Hide of tlie entrance a vantage point could
he gained from which the entire harbor,
it is believed, could be examined. In all
probability Commodore Schley or one of
liis trusted officers has succeeded iu performing this hazardous undertaking in
order to obtain the valuable information
contained in his dispatch.
It is impossible, owing to the lateness of
the hour, to obtain any officiul expression
upon the news from Commodore Schley.
What efTeot the certainty that Cervera is
practically helpless will have ou the plans

Boat Wanda, off Cardenas, May 28— (Via
Key West, May 29.)—Cardenas harbor
has been completely closed by the Spn-
lards since the attack of the Winslow and
other American torpedo boats. This fact
was demonstrated yesterday hy the attempt of the English steamship Myrtle-
dene to enter the port lo take on a cargo
of sugar.
The Myrtledenc had begun to take on
the cargo when war was declared und she
was ordered out by the American gunboat
Mnchios. Her owners claimed that under
the blockade proclamation she was entitled to 30 days to load and Secretary of
the Navy Long gave the steamer permission 1<* return and complete her cargo.
She found, however, that the harbor was
filled with sunken obstructions and could
not get in. She lies outside of the harbor, uncertain whether to attempt to
bring her cargo out in lighters or wait for
the war to end.
The waters of Cardenas are loo shallow
for big ships and the Winslow tragedy
probably closes the history of naval operations iu that quarter.

Conference of High omclaU Decides
on the Movement.
Washington, May 27.—An important
conference of high pfficialfl was held with
the president at the White house yesterday. Among those present were Secretary Long and Alger, General Miles, Adjutant General Corbin and Captains Malum and Crowninshicld and Admiral Si-
card of the naval strategy board.
The conference lasted several hours but
none of tlie parties were willing to speak
of the matters under discussion beyond
the statement that it was he first time
the strategy board has joined the other officials in conference and that the whole
field of military and naval operations,
present and prospective, was gone over.
There is reason to believe that, notwithstanding this reticence, the movement on Puerto Rico is in contemplation
and should it appear that tho Spanish
ileet is hemmed in at Santiago harbor as
believed, active operations will begin in
the near future against Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. This is believed
to he the president's purpose in calling
for 75,000 additional volunteers and it is
said to he not unlikely that other calls
will be made, as rapidly as the troops can
be equipped, until the effective force of
the army will be sufficient to make short
work of the Spanish forces wherever ond
whenever encountered.
To Move nt Onee.
New York, May 27.—A special to the
Tribune from Washington says:
Extraordinary activity in the war and
navy departments, which was not limited to the higher officials but included every individual in both services, gave every indication of important developments
in the conduct of the war, while an unusual secrecy served to strengthen the
impression that prompt and energetic action along the whole line in the West
Indies had becomo a question of hours
rather than dnys.
Humors, too definite to be ignored but
impossible of official authentication, explained the remarkable hurry and bustle
as due to the president's determination
to have Puerto Rico occupied by American soldiers without further delay and
that the troops which had been concentrated at gulf porta for the invasion of
Cuba were to embark immediately on tho
20 transports which had been secured and
under convoy of Admiral Sampson's
squadron, be sent at once to San Juan de
Puerto Rico and establish a permanent
colonial government in the island similar
to that which General Merritt is charged
with creating in the Philippines.
However startling the report, its plausibility suon received eorrobative strength
through the reluctance of every high official to deny it, while many senators and
other prominent civilians having influential relations with those carrying on the
war, not only affirmed the existence of
tlie suggested plan, but gave cogent reasons for its sudden adoption by the authorities.
SpunlHh Ht-NlHtiuiee Will Collnpne.
It was said tnat the events of the last
few days in Cuba, culminating in the
uselessness to Spain of Cervera's fleet
securely "corked up" at Santiago and the
destruction of the untrammeled cable
communication between the colonies and
Madrid, gave overy assurance of the
speedy collapse of Spanish resistance to
tho inevitable and the United States had
awakened to the necessity of possessing
Puerto Rico before uie end came.
That island and the Philippines had
come to be looked on as an essential recompense to the United States for its expensive intervention in behalf of Cuba's
freedom and the fear had arisen that,
unless they wero actually secured before
Cuba fell, embarrassing complications
leading possibly to grave international
complications with iOuropean powers,
might not be avoided.
With the Spanish military forces at
Havana effectually isolated and without
even remote hopes* of reinforcements:
with Spain's naval force on this side of
the Atlantic completely paralyzed, and
with the Madrid government already tottering in its insecurity of policy, the
opportunity for dealing a crushing blow
through tho island of Puerto Rico was
hardly to bc resisted.
No Cause for Delay.
Tlio sanitary condition of Cuba, the
strength of the army there, and many
other causes which operated to delay the
invasion of that island with the insufficient force of trained regulars which it
had been possible to concentrate at Tampa in a single month, wholly disappeared
as factors of delay in the Puerto Kican

to the People nt Large.
Washington, May 27.—The president
today issued the following proclamation:
By tlie President of tlie United States
—A Proclamation:
Whereas, An act of congress was approved on the 25th day of April, 1808,
entitled, "An net declaring that war existed between the United States of America and the kingdom of Spain"; and
Whereas, An act of congress entitled,
"Au act to provide for temporarily increasing the military establishment in the
United Stales in time of wur, and for
ohei* purposes," approved April 22, 1808,
the president is authorized, in order to
raise a volunteer army, to issue his proclamation calling for volunteers to serve
in the army of tho United States;
Now, therefore, I, William McKinley,
president of the United States, by virtue
of the power vested in ine by the constitution and laws, and deeming sufficient occasion to exist, havo thought fit to call
forth, and hereby do call forth, volunteers
to the aggregate number of 75,000, in addition to the volunteers called forth by
my proclamation of tlie 23rd of April in
the present year; tho same to be apportioned, as far as practicable, among the
several states and trereitories and the District of Columbia, according to population, and to serve for three years, unless
sooner discharged. Tbc proportion of each
arm of service and details of enlistment
and organization will be mnde known
through tlio war department.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the United States to bo affixed. Done at the
city of Washington, this 25th dny of
May, in the year of our Lord one thous-
und, eight hundred and ninety-eight, and
of tho independence of the United States
the one hundred and twenty-second.
By WILLIAM R. DAY,   Secretary    of
No Oecaalon  for Horry.
Washington, Mny 25.—Secretary Alger
said this afternoon that the additional recruits will bc not recruited from the national guard, as were the first 125.000, but
the enlistments will bc open.
The regulations referred to inthe proclamation under which enlistments will
be conducted have not yet been prepared
nnd it is thought there is no occasion
for a hurry in this matter until the full
draft culled for in the first proclamation
has been secured.
It is further stated that the decision
to issue tbe additional call for volunteers
was not reached until the cabinet meeting yesterday. Tho call, it is supposed,
here, indicates a determination to press
the campaign actively and vigorously
from now on.
First  Coll  Nearly  Filled.
Washington, May 25.—One hundred
nnd twelve thousand men have now been
mustered into the volunteer army and official reports show tbe greater numher
of these arc ready to move to the front.
Two-thirds of the states have entirely
completed their muster.
The failure of some of the states, notably four or five in the south, to furnish
the men called for up to this time, is a
suqnise to army oilicers here, but is ascribed not to lack of patriotism, but to
the belief probably shared by many national guardsmen who had home tics and
business connections which they could not
well afford to give up, that plenty of
other persons not so encumbered would
readily be found to tate their places.

Where the nest  Bananas Grow.

Llmon, and the country gets aliout 30
cents per bunch in gold. He Is notified
by wire from Hie seaport to cut, and
hns two days In whieh to gather and
deliver at the railway. Trains composed of well-ventilated cars take the
fruit to a fust steamer, whicli ls waiting to convey It abroad. The bunches
will average about fourteen hands
each, aud ench hand hns from seventeen to eighteen bannnas. When the
bunch gets to New Orleans or New
York tbey are worth about $4 ench. a
tremndous advance over the price paid
the Costn Rlcau producer.
"The planter, however, Is surer of a
safe profit than auy other person handling the fruit. Jamaica negroes do
all the labor attendant on the planting,
culture and cutting, being better adapted to the work thon the native peon.
Jamaica bananas often mnke a finer
appearance, but nre not so prolific as
the Port Llmon product. The best
plantations of Costn Hlea are subject
to overflow, and the waters deposit a
silt that greatly enriches the soil.
Crops nre ready for cutting the whole
